THAT’S FRUSTRATING stuff for the

Dunsandel Irwell Rugby Club on page 3

today.

Their ground was torn up over Queen’s

Birthday weekend by someone in a vehicle

doing doughnuts.

It was probably great fun at the time for those in the vehicle

but spare a thought for the people who have put a huge amount

of work into keeping the ground up to scratch for what it is

meant for – sport.

Groundsman Philip Wolff is understandably not a happy chap.

“It’s just upsetting with the amount of work you put in and

someone comes and does this,” he said.

Dunsandel Community Committee chairman Nigel Barnett

said the vandalism was a smack in the face.

No doubt the culprit or culprits responsible probably deserve

something similar.

A RUGBY club has received a

“kick in the guts” after its main

field was vandalised by a car.

Dunsandel Irwell Rugby Club

said the incident happened during

Queen’s Birthday weekend.

Club groundsman Philip

Wolff discovered doughnut

damage from a vehicle on the

field at Dunsandel Domain on

Monday last week.

Police received a report

the following day and a spokeswoman

said inquiries are ongoing.

Said Mr Wolff: “It’s just upsetting

with the amount of work

you put in and someone comes

and does this,” he said.

Dunsandel Community Committee

chairman Nigel Barnett

described the incident as a

“smack in the face” for volunteers

who help the club.

Mr Wolff – who has been with

the club for more than 30 years

– said the field was out of action

last week and is does not know

when it could reopen. Cost of

repair and installing new gates

is also yet to be determined, he

said.

“We have to remove the

mounds of dirt and roll the field

so it’s possible games could be

cancelled,” he said.

Mr Wolff believes the doughnuts

were done by a four-wheeldrive

vehicle, based on the tyre

tread marks.

The damage meant many

She said the majority of

events were for the Otago

Because the Otago event

was so close to the New

Championships early next month,

many of the top dancers entered

Maths whizz on world stage

• By Anan Zaki

EVEN MATHS whizzes have

their least favourite topics.

For Lincoln High School

student Alan Li, it’s geometry.

But that’s not stopping him from

representing New Zealand in

the International Mathematical

Olympiad next month.

The 17-year-old of Weedons

is one of six chosen for the New

Zealand Maths Olympiad team

travelling to Bath, United Kingdom.

“The competition itself consists

of two days, and every day

you’re given four-and-a-half

hours to solve three problems,”

Alan said.

He was chosen after attending

a maths Olympiad training

camp in Auckland in January.

“The style of mathematics

is quite different from what’s

encountered in school. It’s a style

that requires a lot of creative

thinking and the solutions are

very elegant and insightful. You

have to learn methods taught

beyond school,” Alan said.

Most participants learn at

home, he said.

“Unlike school we don’t have

a set curriculum, it’s like you try

do as many problems you can to

accumulate experience,” he said.

Alan said his favourite topics

in maths are algebra and number

theory.

Alan has also been selected by

the Royal Society Te Aparangi

for the London International

Youth Science Forum – a twoweek

science camp – also held

next month.

He is being supported by the

talented school students travel

award, which is managed by the

Royal Society and funded by the

Ministry of Business, Innovation

and Employment.

Alan said he was looking

forward to represent New Zealand

on the world stage at the

Olympiad.

“I’m not so nervous. My goal

was to be selected for the team

and I know there are a lot of

talented people out there. I want

to do well of course,” he said.

Alan also gave special thanks

to his teachers at school.

“[I want to thank] all the

teachers in the school in

particular, Mr Tolhoek, Mr

Phillips and Mrs Litten,” he said.

$2.6m upgrade for

council building

VISITORS TO the district

The building will remain

open for business as usual

through this time.

This will bring together

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, said

All district 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.

Regular servicing increases

the life of a motor vehicle

Whether you have a concern about your vehicle or

just want to be sure it is up to standard, the expert

automotive technicians at Rolleston Diesel & Petrols

will happily look it over. If there is an issue they will

competently and quickly sort it. Not surprising,

given the efficient approach to jobs that is taken,

and modern workshop fitted with sophisticated

diagnostic equipment like fuel injector cleaning gear,

Egr and Dps.

Rolleston Diesel & Petrols, 839 Jones Road.

We drive our vehicles often not thinking about

their need for regular servicing, yet this should

be carried out every 5,000-10,000 kilometres.

Whether a relatively new or older model vehicle,

regular servicing is important and should be

undertaken by a reliable and competent specialist in

automotive repairs.

Vehicle batteries are under the most strain in cold

weather. You also need reliable windscreen wipers,

not to mention the engine and other vehicle parts

functioning efficiently so you are not stranded on a

country road in the middle of the night. Therefore,

booking your motor vehicle in for servicing before

the really colder part of winter is here will help ensure

hassle-free motoring.

Everyone in the team at Rolleston Diesel and Petrols

is fully trained in automotive repairs. They also

have considerable individual experience in vehicle

servicing and maintenance. This fully equipped

workshop can handle personal and commercial

vehicles, whether a car, ute, 4WD, van, light

commercial (up to 12 tons), motorhome, bus or

motorcycle. They even repair jet skis, boats, ride-on

lawnmowers and horse floats.

Rolleston Diesel & Petrols are accredited to carry

out warrant of fitness checks. They will thoroughly

inspect your vehicle’s brakes, suspension and

steering so you can be confident it is roadworthy, as

well as meeting legal and insurance requirements.

Fully qualified automotive technicians,

Simon, owner of Rolleston Diesel & Petrols.

Simon also insists on using only original

manufactured equipment parts, reliable quality

components and high quality lubricants.

Lessons learned from

“They would practice one skill

really good at it but in a game

situation they’d struggle with

other skills required in a game

a game.

“It’s just planning forward,

“The focus there will be learning

about each other, what strengths

people have got but also working

on picking a first project.”

Mr Sullivan said people who

have joined forces to create the

Rolleston club want it to complement

other community organisations

in the area.

“They don’t see it as being a competition.

They want to work with

others. If other groups want more

horsepower there’s another group

that can help them,” he said.

Prospective members met for

the first time a fortnight ago.

“Most of them are keen to join.

It was great and couldn’t have

gone better,” Mr Sullivan said.

Seven people have worked on

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 events.

“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,” he said.

The next drop-off days will be

held on November 2.

Tantrum to the power of 10

I HAD TWO pretty decent

sleep-ins last week.

I mean I had to travel to

Australia to get them, and one of

those included being a bit worse

for wear. Still, it was good to get

some extra shut-eye.

However, poor Laura got stuck

inside while I was away thanks

to the nasty weather. If you

remember back to early April

when I was away in Hamilton

she copped the same.

It must be a curse or

something.

My flight didn’t get in until

1am on Tuesday morning, so I

only ended up getting about four

hours sleep before a little smiling

face was pressed close to mine to

get me up.

I was stoked, I had missed

Vittoria heaps while I was away.

While I was gone she’s

mastered her little push-car and

worked out how to turn up the

tantrum power to 10.

With average weather striking

again on Tuesday, riding her

little car up and down the drive

wasn’t a full-day option.

Laura was on leave so the

three of us packed up the car

and headed to Lyttelton for a

family lunch out.

Bubs behaved like an angel the

whole time.

After eating we went out onto

a deck area to see the view of

the port when Vittoria spotted

an excellent way to show off her

tantrum skills – some slippery

looking stairs that had toddler

head injury written all over

them.

Not letting her go down

those was cause for a full-blown

meltdown at me, crying and

screaming right beside some

strangers enjoying a coffee

catch-up.

Good thing I’ve developed

a healthy level of not getting

stressed about what bystanders

think.

When I tried to give her a

cuddle to calm her down, she

ran away for a cuddle from

mum instead and her stroppy

attitude lasted all the way back

to the car.

Still, it was nice to see Vittoria

turn to Laura for a change. I’m

sure, in spite of the tears and

noise, that Laura would have

appreciated that too.

Meeting to

second

Rolleston

probus club

THE RAPID expansion of

Rolleston might warrant the

formation of a second probus

club for the town’s retirees.

The current Rolleston club

already has 160 members who

meet monthly to attend events

and outings together.

Rolleston convenor of new

clubs Margaret Drake said

research showed those who were

socially active had a happier and

longer life.

Members could join subgroups

with like-minded people

who shared interests such as

walking, travelling, reading and

cooking.

Other Selwyn probus clubs

were located in Darfield, West

Melton, and Ellesmere and

Lincoln.

The clubs were non-religious,

non-political and non-fundraising

and run by the Christchurch

Rotary Club.

A meeting to gauge interest for

a second Rolleston club will be

held at the community centre on

Tuesday, June 18, at 10am.

Our People

Julie Patterson

From Southbridge to Antarctica and

Julie Patterson is the first

woman to be president

of the Canterbury Rugby

Football Union. She

speaks to Sophie Cornish

about growing up in

Southbridge, her own

experience playing rugby

and meeting Sir David

Attenborough

What was life like growing up

in Southbridge?

It was a very small country

town. If you weren’t related,

you certainly knew everyone. I

come from a big family, more

than 50 first cousins spread

across Canterbury and beyond.

Growing up a lot was revolved

around family and farming. We

moved in the township when I

was four-years-old. I was always

active, it’s that rural background

of being outdoors and always

doing something.

Rugby is a big sport for

women. Did you play as a girl?

Girls just didn’t play rugby, it

was never a consideration, girls

played netball. If I had grown

up in Courtenay or Kirwee like

my mum did, then I would have

played hockey, because that was

what girls did. I certainly played

netball and was reasonably useful

at it. I played in a few rep teams,

I played the centre position. It

didn’t even occur to us to say

why can’t we play (rugby)? It

wasn’t an issue because it never

came up. It wasn’t really until

I moved to Christchurch that I

got involved with the University

of Canterbury Rugby Club and

never looked back. I enjoyed it so

much. I had bumped into some

people who were involved and

they got me along to it. In fact,

I recently ran into my first two

coaches, who happened to be in

Christchurch. We caught up out

at Belfast watching Varsity boys

play Belfast on their club day. It

was just like oh my God, my first

coaches. This was back in 1985,

they live out of town now, but we

had a laugh together. They have

watched with interest over the

years and are pleased to see how

well I’ve done.

How did you first find out

about being offered the role as

president of the CRFU?

It was certainty not something

I expected. I never imagined

I would be following in the

footsteps of Canterbury legends.

I had a couple of years to get

my head around it, I was the

vice-president for past two years.

It’s one of those things where

you get approached and asked if

you would accept a nomination

initially. I was surprised and

honoured to be approached. Then

of course my club supported that

nomination. In my two years as

vice-president I worked really

closely with Vance Stewart,

Patterson in Amsterdam

during the 1988/89

Canterbury University tour of

the United States and Europe.

The team had just beaten the

Dutch national side.

who was the president. He is

a fantastic man, an old school

gentleman of the game. It was a

pleasure to spend time with him

and bounce ideas off him. It’s a

huge honour to work with people

like that. Vance was the first

Crusaders coach, he’s been an All

Black, he’s done so many great

things. So to suddenly be held in

the same level it’s like gosh, how

do you put that into words. It’s

incredibly humbling.

You took the Ranfurly Shield

down to Antarctica – what was

that all about?

I worked for Antarctica New

Zealand for about 10 years. I have

been lucky to have 10 trips to

Scott Base. I took the Ranfurly

Shield down and on another trip

I took the Farah Palmer Cup

(national women’s provincial

trophy). It was a great to have the

shield over a summer that was

when Scott Base was celebrating

its 60 th birthday. It was a great

way to celebrate my rugby

connection with that iconic piece

of rugby trophy with the crew

down there.

first woman to be CRFU president

They didn’t know it was

coming, it was a huge surprise for

them and it was great to be able

to create those memories. They

got to hold the shield and get a

photo with it when they would

never expect to see it, let alone

have it at Scott Base. It was like

kids in the candy shop. It’s got

its own special case, you have to

look after it very carefully. It’s

an old trophy now and it’s wood

so I was pretty nervous. I didn’t

want to be the one who breaks

the shield, it wouldn’t be such

a good story. There was a bit of

paperwork, it was a huge thing to

do, I think it was the first time it

had been out of the country.

What sort of work did you do

down there?

The work was different each

time, mostly up to three months

living and working down there

as part of the leadership team,

sometimes HR or training or

operational leadership support.

It was a huge privilege to get

down there to work and support

the science. I actually got to host

Sir David Attenborough in 2010

for dinner. It was a pinch-me

moment. He had come down to

the ice to film his Frozen Planet

series and to do his pieces to the

camera. Of course we invited the

team and Sir David over. I got to

sit next to him and have dinner.

You could just pose a question

and he would be off, he’s got

so many good stories. He’s

also got a wicked sense of

humour and is a wee bit naughty.

I loved his work when I was

growing up.

What does a day in your

role as president of the CRFU

consist of?

It’s fully a volunteer role,

which I do in the weekends and

evenings. I call it my second

job, I work full-time. It means

I represent the union and

Canterbury rugby community at

different events. You get invited

to attend as the figurehead of

Canterbury rugby, you might

be speaking or handing out

trophies, just connecting with

the community really. You’ve got

to be out and about connecting

PRIVILEGE: Julie Patterson in Antarctica with the Ranfurly Shield.

with the community from grass

roots up to visiting dignitaries,

provincial unions, that sort

of thing. It’s kind of cool; you

get to meet a lot of really neat

people. My Saturday starts at

some sort of junior game, when

there is frost still on the ground,

I’m pleased I’m not playing at

that point. I love watching kids

playing and enjoying it. In the

afternoon I will go out and

watch any club days, or go to

any finals or semi-finals. I try to

make sure I get across not only

metro rugby, but Ellesmere and

North Canterbury as well. It’s

always great to get out and see

different styles and levels from

kids playing rippa to division

one men’s and women’s. I get

the pleasure of going to all the

Crusaders and Canterbury home

games. I do site liaison work for

Super Rugby. That’s always good

to be doing something practical.

For Canterbury home games,

we are usually hosting people,

from the opposition to key

stakeholders, sponsors that sort

of thing. I mix and mingle with

those people and hear about what

is happening in their space.

We share ideas on how to

keep growing the game and

encouraging participation. We

had Bill Osborne, who is president

of New Zealand Rugby, down over

the weekend and I caught up with

him. I got invited along to the

Black Ferns capping that they had

here on Saturday night. Seventeen

more Black Ferns were capped;

quite a few were Canterbury girls.

It was a great pleasure to see them

getting their caps and celebrating

with them.

What do you hope to change

in this role?

I think this appointment is

a symbol of change, to change

people’s perception of Canterbury

rugby. It’s not as conservative,

traditional or male-dominated as

people might imagine. It’s just a

reflection that women have always

contributed and this is a great way

of recognising that it is a game

that is inclusive. It’s not about

gender; it’s about contribution and

passion.

Who has inspired you to get

to this point?

I have been hugely influenced by

the people at the university club.

Initially, that was Laurie O’Reilly,

he was one of my first coaches. He

was a huge supporter of diversity,

inclusively and encouragement. It

was his vision that continued to

build what we as a club and then

as a province and nationally have

been able to do in the women’s

space. He was a great technical

coach. Without him, women’s

rugby wouldn’t be in the position

it is today. I wouldn’t be the first

president of Canterbury rugby

if I hadn’t met him and been

encouraged by him. Of course

there are others too. Ivan Bolton

was the president at the university

club when I started there in the

mid-80s. He’s in his late 80s now

but is still contributing.

He recently got a lifetime

achievement award from Sport

Canterbury and from the

university’s Blues committee.

Its people like them that always

just encourage and support you

to do things and haven’t put any

barriers in the way.

They challenged me to go

beyond the normal pathway.

Laurie took us on a tour as the

University girls (team) to the

United States and Europe in 1988.

We played over seven weeks and

every second or third day we

played a game. The friendship and

memories we created, it’s those

sorts of bonds that are special in

rugby.

That’s why I’d like others to

have their own journey, but also

make those friendships which are

really important.

Who are your favourite All

Blacks of all time?

For me, Dan Carter and Richie

McCaw are pretty special. There

is that Southbridge connection

with Dan, I remember him as a

kid growing up. I had a friend that

used to tell people she babysat

him. I used to say ‘you know that’s

not true’ and she would say ‘oh

but you could have.’ Yes, if his

parents had of asked me I could

have. I’m sure I babysat some of

his classmates. I knew as a child

he had a goalpost, his dad had

made it for him and he spent a lot

of time kicking the ball around.

I remember seeing him kicking a

ball around but no one predicted

as a five or six-year-old that he

would do what he’s managed to

achieve.

What do you like to do outside

of rugby?

I work in HR. I am a people

business partner, HR manager,

for an engineering consultancy.

Outside of rugby I enjoy

photography, movies, art, music.

I enjoy people and landscape

photography, going down to the

ice, it’s not very difficult to take a

good photo in Antarctica.

Tell me about your family –

are you married/have kids?

No, I have no husband and

no children. I like to call myself

unclaimed treasure. I have three

older sisters, they all have kids

who are all sort of grown up now.

We have a big extended family,

mum was from a family of 12 and

dad from six. It was busy.

What will Canterbury rugby

look like in 10 years? Will we

have a new stadium?

I hope we continue to grow the

game and that participation levels

grow, whether it’s the men’s and

women’s game. I want people to

be engaging if they aren’t playing,

referees, managing, coaching,

helping run the competitions

and clubs. Everyone plays a part.

I will be disappointed if we don’t

have a stadium in 10 years. We

desperately need one with a roof

in order to secure internationals,

not just for rugby but as a multisport

facility. We really need that

to continue the re-build.

Thank you for

community

To all of you who have had your

trees trimmed before they became

a problem, thank you for keeping all

the families in your community warm,

happy, healthy and connected.

You can be proud of the fact that you have allowed your

neighbours to stay warm, cook dinner and even charge

their mobile phones. You may not have realised that what

you’ve done has had much impact, but from all of us here

at Orion, we just want to say thank you.

Notice and Growth limit zones

Power line voltage A. Growth limit zone B. Notice zone

33,000 volts 2.5m 3.5m

11,000 volts 1.6m 2.6m

400/230 volts 0.5m 1.5m

We’re not exaggerating.

On our network, 10-20% of all unplanned power outages are

caused by trees — including vegetation — coming into contact

with power lines. Other than this, fire damage to property from

branches sparking in dry conditions and serious injury from

electrocution from contact with trees touching power lines are

also possible consequences of not maintaining your trees.

How close is too close?

While most damage is caused by trees falling on power lines,

significant risk exists from trees merely touching them. This risk

increases the higher the voltage of the power line.

The minimum distances that must be maintained between trees

and power lines, as defined in the Electricity (Hazards from

Trees) Regulations 2003, are outlined in the diagrams above.

All vegetation should be kept out of the growth limit zone and

preferably the notice zone.

Sometimes it may not be practical to have a tree trimmed at the

rate at which it grows and unfortunately, this means it may need

to be removed. Other situations may require trees to be removed,

most commonly when they are at a high risk of falling due to

disease or adverse weather events.

Where do I start?

Before you begin, remember to keep yourself, and those around

you, safe. We recognise that not everyone is experienced in tree

trimming and are happy to advise you on what to do. We can arrange

for trees near power lines to be trimmed at your expense, however

we recommend you hire professionals to safely carry out the work.

If you or someone working for you intends to work within four

metres of power lines, a close approach consent is required from

Orion before you start. As a tree owner, you may be liable for any

damage caused by carrying out trimming or felling of trees.

Will I be fined if I don’t comply?

If a cut or trim notice is given to you and you fail to have the tree

trimmed and/or advise us of the time and location of the trim

without a reasonable excuse, this is an offence. This will make you

liable for a fine not exceeding $10,000. If the offence continues,

you will be liable for a further fine of not more than $500 for every

day or part day during which the offence continues.

More info can be found on our website and if

you have any questions or notice any trees

touching power lines in your area, please call

us on 03 363 9898 or 0800 363 9898.

Try-scoring Sheat marks

200th game for Southbridge

• By Jacob Page

SOUTHBRIDGE maintained

their momentum and celebrated

hooker Michael Sheat’s 200th

game in style as round one of

Ellesmere’s Coleman Shield got

under way on Saturday.

Sheat scored two tries to

help his team beat Burnham

Dunsandel Irwell 34-10 at

Southbridge Domain.

“The first one I had to do a bit

of work for, but the second one

was passed to me over the line.”

The 31-year-old said it was a

proud moment for him in his

13th season with the team.

“I started when I was 19, so

it’s been a big part of my life,”

he said.

Sheat played his first 140

games at halfback before

shifting to hooker in recent

years.

“The way I was growing – out

– made the move a no-brainer

but it was fun to learn a new

position.”

Sheat also played three games

with former All Blacks first-five

Dan Carter.

“In 2009, he was coming back

from an Achilles injury and the

boys joked, I better not pass it

too low so he didn’t re-injure it

bending down.”

He said winning three

combined country titles and

two Coleman Shields has been a

highlight.

With points carrying

over from fixtures involving

Ellesmere teams during

the combined competition,

Springston remain unbeaten

at the top of the table after a

comfortable 36-7 win over

Prebbleton.

Springston scored 24

unanswered second-half points

slip a point ahead of Christchurch

in the standings. The margin

stayed that way as Christchurch

also had a bonus-point win

against Marist Albion in the last

round.

Rams captain Nic Souchon said

the side’s success had nothing to

do with individual brilliance.

“We aren’t a team of superstars,’’

he said after the match on

Saturday.

“It’s all about the mindset. No

matter who’s on the paddock,

everyone gives it their best, no

matter what position they’re

for another bonus point win,

thanks in part to two tries from

Thomas Cockburn.

Darfield produced a stirring

second half to take down

Lincoln 29-27.

Lincoln led 20-12 early in

the second half before Darfield

stormed back.

A last-gasp try allowed

Lincoln to salvage two bonus

points from the game, but

Darfield’s win lifts them to

fourth on the table.

After a tough end to the

combined country competition,

defending champions Waihora

got a much needed 46-5 win

over Rolleston which ensured

they remained in second.

West Melton also easily

accounted for Hornby 29-5.

Waihora v Lincoln and

be the matches with the most at

LINCOLN COMBINED were

left to rue a red card after their

22-19 loss to St Thomas’ in their

UC Championship encounter on

Friday.

Lock Blake Evans was sent off

for retaliating after an incident in

a ruck midway through the first

half, which meant Lincoln had to

play 50min with 14 players.

Coach Tom Hooper said it

is likely Evans will receive a

two-match ban, “which was

standard”. But he said they will

wait to see if a judicial hearing is

needed this week.

Lincoln Combined led 14-7

at halftime, but the one-man

disadvantage eventually took a

toll.

Hooper said the game felt

like a missed opportunity, even

though he could not fault the

team’s effort.

“The boys were incredibly

brave, we didn’t have a lot of ball

and had to defend for a lot of the

game and they were fantastic, but

we just ran out of energy.”

Hooper said the red card

was justified but he would have

liked the referee to have seen the

original incident that sparked the

situation. “It’s often the guy that

retaliates that gets caught and

that’s what happened.

Hooper said the big St Thomas’

forward pack eventually won the

scooted through.

Beardsley is getting stronger

with every game and Kerr is

both robust and clever in tight

situations.

Sam Gilbert gave another near

faultless goal-kicking display in

difficult conditions, missing only

the conversion of his own try

right at the end.

Burnside enjoyed some strong

passages of play, sparked by the

likes of No 8 Christiaan Grandiek

Signalled NZTA funding cuts could

put motorists at risk

Kids love Active Autumn

There was a wow effort from over 4000 young people last month

who got active on their way to school.

The second annual Active Autumn event saw pupils from 10 Selwyn

schools take part in the W.o.W challenge (walk or wheel) to get a

card stamped each time they biked, scootered or walked to school.

The campaign run by the Council’s Road Safety team encouraged

the children to use an active mode of transport such as walking,

skating, biking or scootering to get to and from school.

The children also took part in a colouring competition to come up

with their own road safety message as part of the month-long event.

Each school received a series of prizes for children taking part in

the colouring competition with one child at each school winning a

scooter and bike helmet.

Southbridge School Principal Tamara Bell say the campaign was a

big hit with her pupils.

“A huge thanks to [Council School Road Safety Coordinator]

Stephanie Hautler from the Council for organising this important but

really fun Active Autumn challenge and to the Council for donating

all the prizes to our school. Our kids loved participating and were

over the moon to get their hands on some of the awesome prizes!”

Nation-wide funding cuts to local roading improvements could have a significant impact on

Selwyn motorists’ safety.

Last week the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) informed the Council that its funding for

local roading projects, contained in the current National Land Transport Programme (NLTP), would

be cut due to a nation-wide funding shortfall.

This means key roading projects to improve safety and enhance the network to fit in with the

Christchurch Southern Motorway extension are unlikely to go ahead as planned, says Deputy

Mayor Malcolm Lyall. This includes some cycleway projects.

“While we have had a constructive working relationship with the NZTA in the region, vital projects

which we were planning to improve the safety and efficiency of roading network, particularly our

roads feeding into the Christchurch Southern Motorway, have been halted unexpectedly due to a

shortfall in national transport funding.

“This puts our residents and other motorists at risk on main roads that are in desperate need of

safety upgrades.”

The NZTA had indicated a likely subsidy assistance of $5.6m. This was incorporated into the

Council’s financial forecasts and work plan.

Local roading projects in the 2018-21 NLTP which will now not proceed include:

· Blakes/Shands and Springs/Marshs Road intersection safety upgrades at Prebbleton ($9.6m)

· Weedons Ross Road widening and upgrade at Rolleston ($1m)

· Rolleston to Templeton cycleway ($400k).

The NZTA attributes the shortfall to some large transport projects which need to be completed

costing significantly more than estimated, along with the cost of other current projects, the

number of carry-forward projects from previous programmes and an emphasis on ‘green’

transport initiatives.

Mr Lyall says the Council will continue to negotiate with the NZTA to find other ways to help pay

for the district’s much needed roading and transport improvements.

“We’re hopeful of creating a solution to this issue. Our local arterial roads between Selwyn and

Christchurch are carrying more traffic than most of the state highways in the district, at over

10,000 vehicles per day,” he says.

Road maintenance programmes are not affected by the signalled funding cuts.

Drive safe this winter

Winter has arrived, bringing more challenging driving conditions, including rain, fog, ice, snow,

shorter daylight hours and less visibility.

“As the snow and rain at the start of June reminded us, conditions on the roads in Selwyn can get quite

tricky in winter and require more care. People need to plan a bit of extra time to fully defrost the car before

starting journeys and travel more slowly on wet or icy roads,” says Council Safety Coordinator Peter Daly.

The Council has a stock of windscreen scrapers – you can pick one up for free at the Council service

centre in Rolleston.

Motorists should reduce speed when travelling in the frosty conditions in the morning and evening. Ice

can also be a problem during the day on patches of road shaded by trees or fences, so watch out for this

and reduce your speed before entering these areas.

It’s also important to stay visible in gloomy conditions or fog by putting your lights on, Mr Daly says.

To help make your journey safer in winter check out our driving tips at selwyn.govt.nz/winterdriving.

Council backs banning the bag

With the national ban on businesses distributing single use plastic

bags coming into effect next month, the council is continuing to

encourage people in Selwyn to move away from plastic bags.

From Monday 1 July plastic shopping bags will need to go in the

red bin—which goes to landfill, rather than in the recycling bin.

The decision to stop taking shopping bags in the recycling was a

result of the dramatic fall in the number of bags, following the decision

by major supermarkets and the government to phase them out.

“It’s great that we’ve been seeing a drop in the number of plastic

bags that have been going into bins across Selwyn since the start of

the year. We’re asking people to continue that good work and keep

using alternatives such as durable reusable bags and boxes.”

Along with using boxes or durable reusable bags, ways to reduce

plastic could include wrapping your organic waste in newspaper

or soiled cardboard such as pizza boxes, Mr Boyd says. Some

supermarkets also deliver online shopping in brown paper bags.

The nation-wide ban on businesses distributing single-use plastic

bags will also come into effect on the same day. Some plastic bags

such as rubbish bags, small bags without handles and bags for pet

waste or nappies will still be available in stores, although the Council

is encouraging people to think about alternatives for these too.

The Ministry for the Environment has more information about the

changes on its website mfe.govt.nz, as well as a range of information

available to businesses to assist with adapting to the new legislation.

Council building renovations begin

With the Council building renovations underway, there are some

layout changes that you need to know about if you pop in to see us.

From next Monday 17 June, the customer car parking and entrance

will be temporarily moved to accommodate our renovations which

will take about eight months.

Please follow the signage which will clearly show where to park your

car and where to enter the building. Internal signage will also show

you where to go once you get inside. We’re still providing full services

as normal while we work to further enhance our customer service.

New beat for front row enforcer

• By Gordon Findlater

CON BARRELL was the first

Super Rugby player to find

himself on the wrong side of the

‘law’ – now he’s enforcing it on

the Gold Coast.

Barrell, 52, played 45 games

as a prop for the Crusaders

between 1996 and 2001. But

in the Crusaders second Super

Rugby match against the Blues at

Lancaster Park in March 1996,

he became the first player in the

competition to be cited for foul

play and was handed a two-week

suspension.

“I took the law into my own

hands,” said Barrell.

“I saw Charles

Riechelmann, the Auckland

lock, hit Mark Weedon . . . I

chased him and we ended up in a

scrap in front of the crowd by the

old embankment.”

Barrell went on to also become

the first player cited in the 1997

season. However, he has now

found himself on the right side

of the law as a sergeant and

fire arms instructor with the

Queensland Police Service.

“It’s a hard job, there’s a lot

on you. There’s things you see

and do that a normal person

shouldn’t. You deal with a lot of

rubbish and drug-related stuff,

but it’s a good job,” said Barrell.

Growing up in Northland,

he started playing rugby at

age four in Hikurangi and

Maungakaramea.

“I was a typical farm boy. I was

into motorbikes, shearing, bushcutting

and everything on the

farm,” Barrell said.

He left school at 15 and

became a full-time bush-cutter.

He then held a number of jobs,

which included fencing and

the meat works, while playing

for Northland in the first and

second divisions of the NPC

between 1990 and 1995.

“It was in them days when

you’d work in the morning

before you played a game in the

afternoon,” he said.

Barrell moved to Christchurch

for the inaugural Super 12

season in 1996 for a starting

opportunity as Craig Dowd and

Olo Brown were the first choice

options in Auckland.

In 1996, the Crusaders finished

dead last and won just one game.

However, Barrell believes it laid

the blueprint for the Crusaders

success going forward.

“I remember after that first

season they were talking about

sacking us and Otago to try and

make one South Island team that

could compete,” he said.

“I think that’s when the

Crusaders were actually born

. . . that’s when we dug in and

we knew we had to do extra

training. That’s what created that

Crusader culture.”

Barrell was part of four Super

Rugby title-winning Crusaders

sides. But the successful 1998

campaign has the fondest

memories after the side went

from last in the standings after

five rounds to champions.

“That builds a real team

culture and character when you

can come from last, knowing

you have to win every game

and get bonus points to even

think about making the semis

and final. They’re pretty special

memories,” he said.

Barrell said a major difference

between his time in red and

black and today’s game is the

importance put on scrums and

specialist scrum coaches.

“Most of them seem to be a lot

more skilled and drilled up now

. . . I remember in the early days

•Great players have come and gone from the Crusaders

over the years. Selwyn Times continues to catch up with

some of them.

IN BLUE: Con

Barrell and his

wife Kate are

now police

officers on the

Gold Coast.

HARDMAN:

Barrell was a

key member of

the Crusaders

after he moved

to Christchurch

from Northland

in 1996 to get

more game time.

for Northland we would put the

scrum machine against a power

pole and do 100 scrums against

the power pole,” he said.

Later in his career, Barrell had

issues with his ACL. He signed a

deal to play in France before reinjuring

his knee, which meant

he stayed in New Zealand. He

went on to play for Northland

in 2002. However, a third ACL

injury during that season ended

his career.

“At 35, it was time to hang

the boots up. I ended up back

in Christchurch working for

Stonewood Homes working in

the sales and design team for

eight years,” he said.

In 2010, Barrell and his wife

Kate moved to the Gold Coast

and soon found themselves

recruited into the police. “We

were having some drinks with

friends at a bar and ended up

having a barbeque back at our

place and one of them was a

Queensland police officer. The

wife ended up joining first . . . I

thought I was too old and broken

down, but I went up to the

academy one day to have a look

around and figured I was more

athletic than most going through

so I decided bugger it, I’ll give it

a go.”

“You can’t beat the lifestyle

here [Gold Coast] – I absolutely

love it. It gets a bit too hot over

summer, which I knew it would

because we always came over for

a pre-season game in January

and it was blimming hard work,”

said Barrell.

ALL STARS: Taylah Gardner, Taylor Wafer and Alexis Hay are

part of the Canterbury under-15 team which will travel to

Indonesia later this week.

Softballers to hit Indonesia

• Jacob Page

FOUR SELWYN softballers will

head to Indonesia next week

with the Canterbury under-15

team.

Taylah Gardner,

Taylor Wafer, Alexis

Hay and Melissa

Chapman, all 14, will

be part of the team

nicknamed ‘The Baby

Hawks’.

The team won the

South Island title and

followed that up with

victory at the national

little league champs.

Their success over

the summer has

given them the right

to represent New Zealand at

the Asia Pacific Little League

tournament.

The tournament gives them

an opportunity to qualify for the

Little League Junior Division

World Series in Washington in

August.

The Baby Hawks will be the

first New Zealand

Little League

representatives to

play internationally.

Taylah, a pitcher

who attends

Rolleston College,

said the team are

keen to adjust

to the humid

conditions, with the

temperature set to

hit 42 deg C.

“We’ll be playing

10 games so we’ll

soon get used to the heat,” she

said. “I want to put in all the

stuff I’ve learnt so far.”

Melissa Chapman

Taylor, who plays right field

and also attends Rolleston

College, said she wants to field

the ball cleanly and do the basics

right.

Alexis, a left outfielder who

lives in Rolleston and attends

Lincoln High School, said the

team is hyped up for it.

“We are all really excited. It’s

something new, but we’re all

pumped,” she said. “We’ve been

training inside in multiple layers

trying to simulate the weather.”

Melissa, who plays in

the outfield and lives in

Leeston while attending

Villa Maria College, said she

hopes the team will be able

to show they deserve to at the

tournament.

The team raised $55,000 in

four months to make the trip

possible.

Gardening

Beat the winter blues with violas

• By Henri Ham

THE WINTER blues in our house

are not the sort to get you down.

To be precise, they’re blue violas,

light blue lobelias, lavender primulas

and moody blues pansies. And

they’re all excellent ways to inject

some bright colour into your winter

garden.

If your garden is looking a little

bland after your summer flowers

have dried up, now is the time to

plant these winter annuals. And if

you’re not feeling so ‘blue’, many of

these pretty flowers also come in

shades of pinks, purples, whites and

yellows as well.

For the sunnier areas of your

garden, look to antirrhinum dwarf,

viscaria, nemesia and lobelia as

good starting points for adding colour.

They suit borders, mass planting

or simply planted in between

your roses. And for those slightly

shadier spots, polyanthus, primulas

and cineraria dwarf can all help add

some bursts of colour.

But if you’re not sure where

to start, violas are a staple of any

winter garden. You’ll find these cute

little flowers in shades of oranges to

yellow, dark blues, burgundy and

white.

If you’re wanting something new,

try sorbet blue viola. It’s a cute little

white and violet coloured flower,

CONTRAST: White and violet viola, make sure your plants are

around 10cm apart.

still featuring the tiny yellow face

that many violas often have.

Plant your viola seedlings 10cm

apart, in full sun with well-drained

soil. They’ll flower from right now

until spring, growing to around

15cm high. Give them a good initial

watering and feed of general fertiliser.

Once they’ve got going, they

won’t need much watering through

the cooler months – the perk of a

winter garden.

In around four to six weeks, you’ll

start to see a splash of colour pop

up. Just remember to pick off the

dead heads to encourage them to

flower, and you’ll get to enjoy your

colourful winter garden for many

months ahead.

And, if you’re a hanging basket

enthusiast, combine your violas

with some cascading lobelia and

hang it near your front door to add

some welcoming colour to your

home. For a basket 30cm across, I

really pack them in (around five to

seven seedlings) in for a fuller effect.

Now that’s a lot of reasons to get

excited about the upcoming winter

blues.

Colorado makes easy work of cross trainer

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

YOU’D THINK after writing

about cars for

30 years there would be

few things in a motor vehicle

that would get the better of me in

terms of technology.

There’s nothing more

embarrassing than having to go

back to a dealership admitting

defeat and asking how something

works.

Well, that happened to me with

Holden’s latest Z71 Colorado,

quite simply I couldn’t get the

deck cover off. The friendly sales

staff at Blackwells quickly showed

me how it was done, and I was on

my way.

I was quite anxious to

have access to the deck area

as my wife’s cross trainer

needed workshop repair, and

transporting it on the back of a

ute was the most sensible option.

I also used it to take a load of

green waste to the recycling

centre.

Quite obviously, these tasks

were no match for the Colorado’s

1000kg load capacity, but they

did serve to prove how adaptable

the modern ute has become,

and if you add in a 3500kg tow

rating the Colorado is right up

there in terms of load carrying

performance.

However, as much as it is a

standout in terms of practicality,

the Z71 four-wheel-drive double

cab is aimed more towards the

recreational buyer, it has decals,

stripes, body kit and a high level

of specification, full leather trim

is some indication as to how it sits

in the market.

There are also many unseen

specification elements, the

Colorado is state of the art in

terms of electronic inclusions

for safety, while comfort and

convenience items are generous.

It is very modern in the cockpit,

while seating comfort for five is

guaranteed.

Under the bonnet sits a

2.8-litre, four-cylinder twincamshaft

turbocharged diesel

engine. It is rated by Holden

at 147kW, and with 500Nm of

torque available at just 2000rpm

it is a powerhouse, easily on a par

with all of its competitors.

Drive is harnessed through a

six-speed automatic transmission.

A manual is available, but it won’t

compete with the auto in terms of

sales figures. Bear in mind, too,

the manual has a lower engine

torque figure of 440Nm.

Shifts in the auto are smooth,

HOLDEN COLORADO Z71: Versatile, go-anywhere double cab

ute.

and the gearing is such that it

provides relaxed motoring at

highway speed, along with the

ratios needed for slow speed, offthe-seal

travel.

Backing up that theory is

the fitment of a true low ratio

transfer box, it is manipulated

electronically by a consolemounted

dial switch at the

driver’s command.

Because I was travelling alone I

didn’t take the

Z71 off-road, instead, I spent

most of my time

with the Z71 at highway speed

and my regular commute. In

those conditions it seems more

car-like than ute-like.

Sure, at well over 5m there is a

lot of bulk to manoeuvre in close

confine situations, but it’s no

worse than any other vehicle of

its type. If you take into account

the numbers that are being sold,

buyers quite obviously don’t rate

that as a challenge.

On the open road, the engine

turns over slowly at 1550rpm

at 100km/h in top gear. At that

speed it returns a 6.2-litre per

100km (46mpg) instantaneous

fuel usage figure and that

accounted for a 9.4l/100km

(30mpg) average figure during

my time with the ute.

That correlates well

with the 8.7l/100km (32mpg)

figure Holden claims for a

combined cycle average.

Road and wind noise are both

kept to a minimum, and the

Colorado as a series imparts

a smooth ride. Of course, it is

better with a bit of weight in the

back, but the reality is the load

bearing suspension is relatively

absorbent and the cab doesn’t

jiggle unnecessarily on uneven

surfaces.

That’s an area where

local research and development

pays dividends. Holden Australia

places a huge emphasis on

developing vehicles for down

under conditions, and

it certainly shows in Colorado.

The ride is acceptable, while and

the entire in-cabin experience is

comfortable.

I guess it would need to be

welcoming. The Z71 listing at

$66,990 is a bit of an outlay, but

if you get to the dealership before

the end of June you will be in line

for a tempting Feildays bargain,

and with the amount of on-board

kit it would be a very worthy

purchase.

Even though the

Jones Road and Industrial Zone

Jones Road Auto loving the

new premises three months on

Nigel and Lisa Fleck owner/operators

of Jones Road Auto are very excited to

welcome customers to visit them in their

new purpose-built premises, which they

moved into earlier this year. “We have

been in the new building for three months

and have been busy since day one, which

we are very thankful to our fantastic

customers,” said Lisa.

Nigel has over 20 years of mechanical

experience and Lisa is a qualified financial

advisor, with experience working in the

multi-faceted banking sector. Working

together as a team they bring a great

mix of skills, complementing each other

perfectly.

Nigel and Lisa love living in Selwyn and

feel very lucky to live in such a vibrant and

growing community. “Our passion for our

business is really about the people, our

incredible staff and our customers”.

Jones Road Auto are very proud to

employ a great team of experienced, high

performing mechanics, and have upgraded

their equipment in their new premises so

they can offer the latest technology. “We

have been really busy since we shifted and

have taken on an additional three staff to

keep up with demand,” said Lisa. “There is

a much bigger workshop space, and extra

equipment and staff means we're getting

through a lot more work quicker than

before, so there are shorter waiting times

for bookings. There is a bigger carpark,

which is full already!”

A service advisor/dedicated mechanic

is positioned in the front office, to be on

hand to answer queries, quote jobs and

generally assist customers on the spot.

The new waiting room is a comfortable,

relaxed space, with TV, free guest Wi-

Fi, complimentary tea and coffee, and

charging points for devices if required.

Nigel and Lisa would love to see

existing and new customers, and would

like to thank customers for their loyalty

and following them to the new location.

They hugely value the local community,

whose support has been incredible from

the first day they opened their doors.

Jones Road Auto are now located at 131

Iport Drive, on the corner of Hoskyns

Hairdressers offer expertise

and creativity at local salon

The opening of the new strip of

businesses at West Melton two and a half

years ago brought vitality and diversity to

the township, with the range of retail and

service operations designed to meet the

growing needs of local residents.

Among these was The Salon, a stylish

hairdressing salon owned and operated

by Viki, an experienced hairdresser who

previously worked in Christchurch, and

has been in the industry for 23 years.

Viki says the location of The Salon

is ideal, as it is easily reached from

surrounding towns including Darfield,

where she lives, and Rolleston, as well as

from Christchurch, and her clients come

from all these areas, and West Melton itself.

“I also enjoy being in a smaller

community, rather than the busier city

environment,” she says.

Working alongside her is Millie, who

has been hairdressing for 15 years, so

The Salon clients have the benefit of both

Viki and Millie’s extensive experience and

expertise in all aspects of hairdressing. Viki

and Millie have worked together for nine

years.

“We get on very well together – we’re a

great team,” Viki says, “and we cater for all

members of the family with cuts, colouring

and styling.”

Newest staff member Rebecca joined

The Salon a few weeks ago, and is enjoying

getting to know the clients.

The Salon uses NAK (Natural Australian

Kulture) products for both colouring and

styling.

“I chose NAK because the product range

is Sulphate and Paraben free and features

natural vegan ingredients, and the colour

range is beautiful and gives true colour

results,” Viki says.

Viki, Millie and Rebecca are passionate

about their craft and love to create a style

and look to suit the individual.

The Salon, 736 Weedons Ross Road, is

open Tuesday to Friday, with late nights

Tuesday and Thursday, and Saturday

morning. To book an appointment phone

347-0800.

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

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

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

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

passion 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

Only eight submi sions were

aimed at regulating commercial

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

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

The presentation is a prelude

As a tribute to those who

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

Mr Winder and his team, the

He said the cha lenge started

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

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.

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 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

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

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

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

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

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

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

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

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

their horses Tommy and Kruze

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

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

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

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.

“You can just about guarant e

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

Presenting your home for sale?

The presentation of your home

doesn’t mean spending thousands

on an upgrade either! So why

wouldn’t you want to do everything

possible to make it appealing to

prospective purchasers?

Street appeal

The exterior of your home is the first

thing buyers will see, so the property

needs to look well-kept and inviting. Take

a look at your place from the street and

see it through a buyer’s eyes. So, cut the

lawns, trim trees, plants and hedges, add

some garden lights and place a nice pot or

plant by the front door. Ensure the house

exterior is cleaned or freshened with new

paint if necessary, hose down drives, paths

and fences, put stylish new numbers on

the house and perhaps buy a funky new

letter box!

Make an entrance

Even if your entrance or hallway is

small, you can still give it some wow! A

large mirror adds light and makes an

entrance look twice the size. Fresh flowers,

candles or a stylish piece of art create an

inviting first impression. Ensure floors are

clean whether timber, tiles or carpet.

Create space

Light, air and space are three key

factors in presenting a home to the

best advantage. Open up curtains

and windows and use lamps and light

fittings for mood and ambience. Arrange

furniture to maximise space and remove

items that make the room appear

cramped.

Fresh feel

Freshen rooms with new paint if

necessary, but aim for neutral tones which

are more versatile for buyers. Add a splash

of colour in cushions, throws, artwork or

a vase of flowers. Invest in a new duvet or

bedspread and always make the bed!

Clear out clutter

Storage space sells but clutter

complicates! Clean out your cupboards,

shelves and garage, and get rid of

unnecessary clutter. Buyers inspect

wardrobes and cupboards so tidy them up

and reduce the number of photos, books,

nicknacks on display – they distract

buyers, too!

Beautify the bathroom

Replace or resurface fittings if necessary,

but otherwise you can simply beautify

your bathroom with thorough and

fastidious cleaning, thick opulent towels,

a tray of beautiful soaps and some lush,

green plants. Invest in a new shower

curtain or laundry hamper, and maybe a

sleek, modern towel rail.

Clean clean clean

Cleaning is a mandatory part of

selling your home: have carpets, rugs

and upholstery commercially cleaned

and sanitised, clean drapes and blinds to

look like new, polish glass and furniture,

wash down all surfaces and fittings in

the bathroom and kitchen, clean all light

fittings, wash windows inside and out,

deodorise your home to eliminate any

odours from pets, cooking or smoke.

Outdoor spaces

Even a small patio, deck or terrace

can be enhanced with a café table and

chairs. Add some colourful accessories –

placemats, candle lamps, pots and plants,

and there you have an extra living area.

If space is not limited, hang a hammock,

string some outdoor lights, position a

garden sculpture or create a water feature

that buyers will love.

Hire a handyman

Squeaking doors, dripping taps, cracked

tiles, broken fences, leaking toilets or

appliances that don’t work are a turn-off

for buyers. If you can’t repair or replace

things yourself, then hire a handyman to

make sure everything in your home works

as it should.

Finish it first

Buyers want to see a finished home,

not one that’s still being fixed! So finish

everything before you list your home

for sale, then launch it onto the market

when it looks its absolute best – you have

nothing to lose and everything to gain!

[Edition datE]

Four things you MUST

do before buying a home

Buying a home is a big deal. It’s likely to be the most expensive thing you buy, and it can be a complicated legal

process. It’s even tougher in a hot market, where there is a lot of competition for a limited number of properties. It

might be tempting to take a few shortcuts, but failing to do things properly could cause more problems later.

Here are our top four tasks for home

buyers.

1. Research the property

The real estate agent selling the property

acts on behalf of the seller, however they

are also required to tell you everything

they know about the property. They

must respond professionally to all your

enquiries and not withhold any details.

Remember that you still need to do

your own due diligence. That means

getting a title search so you can find

out all the facts about the property’s

ownership, boundary and access, as

held by Land Information New Zealand

(LINZ). It’s a good idea to get a Land

Information Memorandum (LIM),

which shows information held by the

local council about the property and

land. For valuable feedback on the

property’s condition, get a report done

by an inspector who has professional

indemnity insurance and carries out

their work in accordance with the New

Zealand Property Inspection Standard.

Although this all costs money, it will

save you more in the long term. Sellers

may occasionally provide some of this

information for you. If this happens,

check that it is up-to-date.

2. Get legal advice

Buying property is expensive, and it

can cost even more if something goes

wrong. That’s why it’s important to get

legal advice before you sign anything.

A lawyer will handle all the paperwork

involved in the process, including the

title search, and offer impartial advice.

If you don’t have a lawyer, the New

Zealand Law Society can help you find

one at propertylawyers.org.nz.

3. Understand the sale process

There are several methods of buying and

selling property, for example, tender or

auction. It’s important to understand the

process for the property you are buying.

Practices can vary between agencies

so make sure you confirm details with

them. The Home Buyer’s Guide at

buyingahome.reaa.govt.nz has more

helpful advice.

4. Read the sale and purchase

agreement and understand what it

means

The sale and purchase agreement is your

contract with the seller. It is crucial to

read it very carefully and get legal advice

before you sign. You can negotiate the

terms and conditions of an agreement,

but once you sign it, there’s no going

back.

Winter’s here...

clear the gutters and

keep them clean

Before clearing the gutter of any debris, it’s

best to securely block off the tops of any

downpipes with a large rag or old towel.

This prevents any of the collected sludge

being washed down and potential causing

a blocking. Beginning at one end, carefully

scoop out any leaves and sludge (either

with a purpose made gutter scoop or small

plastic trowel) and deposit the debris in a

bucket. Work your way along the length

of each section of guttering, emptying the

bucket as necessary. Once the guttering

is clear of mess, remove the rag or towel

and sluice the gutter with clean water,

scrubbing (if necessary) with a stiff-bristled

brush.

Once you’re satisfied the inside of the

gutter is clear and clean, use a preparatory

house or paint wash (diluted with

warm water to the recommended ratio)

to carefully scrub the guttering and

downpipes with a brush, rinsing off any

soapy residue with clean water. For any

really stubborn or unsightly areas of

mould, consider using a preparatory moss

and mould killer. While up the ladder,

do a routine check on the condition of

the guttering, ensuring that water runs

away freely and there are no splits, gaps in

the joints or broken brackets along each

section. Check also along the edge of the

roof for any potential maintenance issues

as now is the time to address any signs of

rust or other damage.

BLOCKED DRAINPIPES

Should the water not flow freely along the

guttering and exit via the downpipe, it

may be there’s a blockage in the downpipe

that will need clearing. Begin by carefully

feeding a garden hose down the top of the

drainpipe until it stops; then turn it on

full. This may be enough to dislodge the

blockage. Failing that, consider using a

length of strong wire or a thin rod to shift

the compacted debris. For truly stubborn

blockages, it may be necessary to remove

the downpipe completely. Beginning at the

bottom of the pipe, unscrew each bracket

and carefully remove the downpipe (or

each section, as necessary) and free the

inside of any blockage with a piece of

garden stake (or strong bamboo). sluice the

pipe out with running water. In extreme

cases it may be necessary to use a water

blaster. Once unblocked, replace the pipe,

screwing back the brackets in reverse

order.

PREVENTION

Prevention is better than cure so consider

placing plastic netting or mesh over

guttering to act as a filter and stop leaves

and other large debris causing a problem.

There are also a number of other custommade

gutter products on the market

including brush-like ‘whiskers’ and other

‘gutter guards’. Remember, however,

that even with these gutter protectors

you’ll still need to check your guttering

system annually to ensure run-off flows

freely. Small particles of dust and dirt can

still accumulate underneath any gutter

protector causing a build-up of sludge, and

inhibiting water flow, both of which can

lead to potential damage. If in doubt, seek

advice from your building professional.

TOP TIPS

Instead of blocking downpipes with

a rag or towel, consider installing a

water diverter on each. This purpose

made device is simple to fit and readily

diverts debris from the downpipe by

way of a plastic flap. When not being

used, the flap is clicked the other way,

and water will flow normally through

the pipe and into the drain.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Showhome

village opens at

Falcon’s Landing

Rolleston’s newest showhome village recently

opened in Falcon’s Landing. Eight building

companies are represented within the village, their

contemporary homes reflective of modern living.

Greenland Homes, Kevler Homes, Mike Greer

Homes, Online Design and Build, Orange Homes,

Pringle Homes, Signature Homes, and Touchstone

Homes all have showhomes at Falcon’s Landing.

Their innovative designs, quality fittings and a high

degree of workmanship within each showhome are

typical of Falcon’s Landing as a whole.

Situated between Lincoln-Rolleston Road and

Springston-Rolleston Road, Falcon’s Landing boasts a

close proximity to Rolleston’s town centre, parks and

schools. The development comprises 600 sections,

ranging in size from 430sqm to 1,000sqm and

starting at $158,000.

Falcon’s Landing is proving popular with first and

second home buyers as well as investors and building

is already underway on 70 plus sections. In addition,

another 30 from the recently released 50 sections in

stage four are already spoken for.

For nearly 20 years, Yoursection.nz has been

creating quality residential communities throughout

Canterbury. These include Levi Park in Rolleston,

and Preston Downs and Wilfield in West Melton.

The developer’s latest project is no exception. Falcon’s

Landing features spacious entrances and attractive

landscaping. Existing mature trees, once part of an

orchard on the land, have been incorporated into

the reserve areas. The result is tranquil community

spaces and an established feel for this new

neighbourhood.

Rolleston’s growth seems irreversible. People are

attracted by the opportunity to have an affordable

new home and comfortable lifestyle with a touch of

rural. Selwyn District Council’s future plans embrace

the town’s growth and construction of a new library,

community and town centre are due to get underway

later this year. The motorway which is currently

under construction will also mean faster travel into

Christchurch.

The expansion of Rolleston has seen new housing

developments fill quickly and it is likely Falcon’s

Landing will be no exception.

Rolleston’s newest showhome village and the

Falcon’s Landing section sales office are open

Wednesdays to Sundays, from 12noon until 4pm;

located on the corner of Lincoln-Rolleston Road and

Falcon Road.
