Cat shootings increase in

Prebbleton; Riko loses eye

• By Sophie Cornish

A TWO-YEAR-OLD cat has

lost its eye after being shot by a

rifle – adding to a spate of cat

shootings in the Prebbleton area

in recent years.

SPCA spokeswoman Jessie

Gilchrist said three shootings

in the past three years in the

Prebbleton area suggest the

incidents may be linked.

Hodgens Rd residents

Cody Hayton and Emilia

Petronelli have paid more than

$2500 in vet bills to treat Riko,

who was shot multiple times on

June 10.

The couple arrived home

from work to find him completely

covered in blood.

“He had a wound on the side

of his stomach, his right paw

was really badly mangled and

his eye was probably the worst

of the three injuries,” said Miss

Petronelli.

During surgery, vets found a

puncture in Riko’s eyeball and

his eye had to be removed.

Judging by the bullet extracted,

they were told the weapon

was most likely a .22 calibre

rifle or bigger.

SPCA and police are

investigating the incident.

SELWYN TIMES

SOMEONE IN Prebbleton doesn’t seem to

like cats.

That’s assuming (a word banned in this

newsroom) the person who has been shooting

cats is from Prebbleton.

Riko was shot just under two weeks ago.

It was probably lucky to survive given the slug taken out was

from a .22 calibre or more powerful weapon.

Riko was shot multiple times and was lucky to survive. He lost

an eye and the injuries have cost his owners a lot of money in vet

bills.

Police have a key suspect who has been interviewed. But no

charges have been laid, indicating that elusive bit of evidence is

not there.

Someone though just might have an idea who it is. The police

are waiting for your call.

A CYCLIST on the way to

work suffered a punctured lung,

broken ribs and grazes when

he was struck by a hit-and-run

driver.

Mark Mateara, 59, would have

suffered life-threatening injuries

if he wasn’t wearing a helmet,

police say.

The Lincoln resident was

cycling along Springs Rd just past

the Prebbleton roundabout when

he was hit by the car at 6.20am on

Monday, June 10.

He was knocked out and when

he woke he was surrounded by

passersby who had called an

ambulance.

Senior Constable Glen

Tweedie wants anyone who saw

a silver four-door sedan driving

erratically in the area at the time

to come forward.

“Police would like to remind

all cyclists about the importance

of wearing a helmet. This

incident highlights the fact that

they can be a lifesaver,” said

Tweedie.

Mr Mateara was wearing a

hi-vis vest, had a red flashing

light on his helmet and another

on the back of his bicycle.

“My helmet and bike are pretty

munted now. I might keep them

as a souvenir though,” said Mr

Mateara.

He had experienced several

near misses before, but nothing as

serious as last week’s incident.

He says if the driver of the

vehicle came forward he wouldn’t

waste his breath on them.

“It’s the easiest word in the

world to say, sorry. But whether

you actually mean it is another

thing.”

•If you saw a silver sedan

driving erratically early in

the morning of June 10 at

Prebbleton, phone Senior

Road funding

cuts could

affect projects

• By Gordana Rodden

FUNDING CUTS to planned road

improvements will be discussed at a

meeting between the district council

and the New Zealand Transport

Agency this week.

NZTA has chopped $11 million

out of three major intersection

improvements in the district.

This could mean that the district

council has to find the shortfall.

Mayor Sam Broughton said this

could impact on other projects.

It comes as the district council

adopted its Annual Plan last week

which will mean on average a six per

cent increase in rates.

Mr Broughton said the NZTA cut

would put “pressure on some of our

roading projects and will be a key

focus of future budgets.”

“Following that discussion we will

have a better idea of what action may

need to be taken around our own

council priorities,” he said.

Mr Broughton said the Annual

Plan had focused on providing the

services and facilities the community

said they wanted last year and rates

reflected this.

Owners impacted by shootings

•From page 1

Senior Sergeant Pete Stills said

a person had been spoken to in

relation to the shootings but no

one has been charged yet.

SPCA spokeswoman Jessie

Gilchrist said four jobs of this

nature have been reported since

December. These were in Waiau,

Springston, Belfast and Prebbleton.

“There were three jobs in

Prebbleton reported in the last

three years. The locations of

these incidents could possibly

suggest that there is a link.”

Mrs Gilchrist said for cases

like this, it is typically very difficult

to gather enough evidence

to prove who the offender is.

Meanwhile, Adam Leatherhead

said his family, including

his two daughters, age 11 and

13-years-old, are still impacted

by the loss of their cat, Midnight,

after he was shot on two separate

occasions.

In January 2017, two-year-old

Midnight was shot with a .22

calibre bullet and his back left leg

was amputated

Almost a year later, Midnight was

shot again, this time in his front left

leg. He had to be put down.

“I don’t think the kids ever got

over it . . . it’s had a real impact

on us. It’s exceptionally upsetting,”

said Mr Leatherhead.

New trial to help police

find dementia patients

• By Gordana Rodden

POLICE ARE trialling a

new system which they

hope will make it easier to

reunite dementia sufferers

and their families when

they go missing.

Sergeant

Alex

Pickover

said it was

often a very

stressful

situation

when police

Alex

Pickover

Phil

Schroeder

found

dementia

sufferers

who did

not know

where

they were

meant to

be or who

should be

contacted

to return

them home.

So he

has initiated a system

involving the Rolleston

Medical Centre and

Rolleston Central Health.

Dementia patients from

these healthcare providers

can now complete a form

with the contact details

of three friends or family

members alongside a photo

of themselves.

This information is then

transferred to the police

system, and an alert is

created for the patient’s

profile.

“The new system will

speed this [process] up, and

we will be able to identify

the person’s family quicker.

This will reduce the

distress and anxiety levels

for the sufferer and family,”

Sergeant Pickover said.

Rolleston Central Health

doctor Phil Schroeder

endorsed the idea, saying

REUNITED:

A new

system

is being

trialled

to find

dementia

sufferers

when they

go missing

and bring

them back

to their

families.

“it makes every sense in the

world.”

“We hear in the media

every so often of instances

where a family member has

been lost completely and it

tears at the heart strings of

a community.”

Dr Schroeder hopes

the system will help put

family’s minds at ease.

If the trial proves

successful and there is

sufficient demand to

warrant it, the system

will be rolled out across

Selwyn with the possibility

of it being introduced

nationwide. There is also

potential for the system to

work at rest homes.

Dame Silvia said changes

which have been suggested to her

EQC’s damage assessment

revision.

“I’m looking forward to

hearing from people in the

Selwyn district who may have

subsequent events,” Dame Silvia

said.

“I’m also keen to hear from

people who have had a role in the

recovery, such as those working

with or alongside EQC.”

It is evident from the stories

shared with her that people and

families are still living with the

lasting impacts of the event and

its aftermath, Dame Silvia said.

“I appreciate it’s often not

easy to revisit difficult past

experiences, but I hope people

will do it for themselves and for

others who will face the effects of

natural disaster in the future.”

The public inquiry will

Teen’s Cambodian genocide study

Research

leads her to

Rob Hamill

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

WHEN BROOKE Harrison first

began studying the Cambodian

genocide, she never expected to

meet the New Zealander whose

brother was tortured and killed

by the Khmer Rouge.

It was a momentous history

lesson for

the Rolleston

teenager,

who had the

opportunity

to interview

former New

Zealand rower

Rob Hamill.

While

Brooke

Harrison

researching

her

assignment,

she came across the

documentary Brother Number

One, which tells the story of Mr

Hamill’s older brother Kerry,

who was killed by the Khmer

Rouge in 1978 after accidentally

straying into Cambodian waters

on his yacht.

The genocide was carried

out by the regime under the

leadership of Pol Pot. Between

1975 to 1979, it was estimated

1.7 million to two million people

were killed.

Wanting to find out more,

Brooke, 17, who attends Villa

Maria College, decided to email

Mr Hamill – and to her surprise

received a reply in about one

hour.

Mr Hamill happened to be

travelling through Christchurch

to Methven and arranged a time

to meet.

Brooke said it was inspiring

how open and willing Mr Hamill

was to share the story about his

brother.

“He revealed that is how he

got into rugby and eventually

rowing, which he became very

successful at. I’m very grateful

that I got the opportunity to

talk to someone so closely

related to such a horrific event,”

she said.

Brooke wanted to study

the genocide after her mum,

aunty and grandparents went

to Cambodia several years ago

and came back “shocked” and

HORROR:

Brooke

Harrison

Rob Hamill

for her

project on the

Cambodian

genocide,

which was

carried out

by the Khmer

Rouge from

1975 to 1979.

“moved” by the history of the

country. She said what stuck

with her most from studying

the project was how severe

the genocide was and yet not

something people know a lot

about.

“I couldn’t comprehend

how violent and torturous the

genocide was, which is why it is

even harder to stomach that one

of our own was killed there,”

Brooke said.

She asked Mr Hamill what it

was like to testify against Kang

Kek Lew, a former leader in the

Khmer Rouge movement; how

he coped with losing his

brother; and the response

his family received from the

community.

“Going

into it, I was

actually quite

nervous to talk

to him about

it because

the last thing

I wanted

to do was

make him feel Rob Hamill

uncomfortable

. . . but as he

started talking,

I realised he

was really

open to talking

about it,”

Brooke said.

Since

researching

the project,

Kerry Hamill

Brooke has

realised how important it is to

learn about history.

“What I have learnt from

studying this project is how easy

it is for people to turn a blind

eye to something that seems so

distant from them . . . it wasn’t

until meeting with Rob I realised

how close to home the genocide

really was.”

IN MY role as the MP for

Selwyn, I often correspond with

the NZTA making inquiries on

behalf of local residents about

planned safety improvements

and raising concerns about parts

of the roading network that are

not working well.

I was shocked to learn recently

that the NZTA has pulled funding

from a further three roading

projects in Selwyn, including

safety improvements at the

Shands/Blakes Rds and Springs/

Marshs Rds intersections.

This is the second wave of cuts

to roading projects in Selwyn after

the NZTA denied funding for

a dozen other badly needed road

safety improvements that had

been recommended for funding

in the 2018-2021 National Land

Transport Plan, including the intersection

of SH73 and Weedons

Ross Rd in West Melton.

It is unacceptable that the

NZTA is now saying it can’t even

fund projects that it had previously

agreed to fund.

I am deeply concerned that

this decision not to fund these

important safety improvements

will result in more serious accidents

and potentially even

fatalities on our region’s roads.

Given the impact of the Southern

Motorway extension on the

surrounding roading network I

believe it is more important than

ever that the identified improvements

to the wider roading

system proceed.

It appears this outrageous

decision is a consequence of the

failure of the current Government

to adequately prioritise

road safety improvements.

While the Government has

claimed that road safety is one of

its highest priorities, it has actually

cut funding to the sector.

We are all paying more in fuel

taxes – even those who cycle, use

public transport or have electric

vehicles pay more for goods and

services whenever suppliers raise

their prices to cover increasing

fuel costs.

FUNDING CUT: The Weedons Ross Rd and State Highway 73

intersection at West Melton.

Unfortunately we have not

seen these tax dollars allocated

to new, high quality roads that

are safe to drive on at 100km/h.

Instead the Government has

cancelled or delayed major

transport projects that were

in the pipeline, including the

proposed upgrade of State Highway

1 between Rolleston and

Ashburton.

The money that should be

being spent on improving our

roads is going into trains, trams

and everything else and the Associate

Transport Minister Julie-

Anne Genter seems to think the

answer to improving road safety

lies in making everyone drive

more slowly.

While I have previously

advocated for reduced speed

limits where appropriate, such

as around schools, drastically

cutting speed limits across the

whole roading network is not

a sensible approach to road

safety. This approach would

further isolate people outside of

our major cities and impact on

our economy by hindering the

movement of freight.

A reader shares an opinion on

open road speed limits

N G Smith – I have been reading

reports that open road speed

limits may be reduced and it has

me wondering what the promoters

base this on?

Over the last month I have

driven about 1000km around the

narrow lanes, and single carriage

way roads in Southern England,

all with a 60mph (100km/h) limit,

in comparison NZ roads are far

superior in both visibility and surfaces

and with very light traffic.

To date I have yet to see an

accident, or any car with dents,

perhaps people concentrate more

as they are aware of other road

users and the need to be alert at all

times?

Dropping limits will cause boredom,

sleepiness and frustration

and the perennial slow drivers will

continue to tailgate both trucks

and cars and then speed up to

close gaps should faster traffic try

to pass and pull in safely, failing in

this basic requirement is probably

the major cause of head on collisions

and fatalities.

Perhaps we should keep the traffic

and economy going forward by

reviewing the limits upwards and

educate the slower drivers to stay

left and allow plenty of space for

following cars to pass safely.

Failing to do this should attract

similar penalties to those charged

with exceeding the limit.

Keep the traffic and economy

moving by opposing this nonsense.

TO THE RESIDENT

• By Sophie Cornish

WITH ONLY their first names,

one photo and the internet,

it took less than 48 hours to

connect two families brought

together by war, 78-years-ago.

Emma Ebrahim was left in

disbelief when she discovered

the Kalogeri family, descendants

of the people who helped hide

her grandfather, Arthur Ernest

Wright, from the Nazis following

the Battle of Crete in 1941.

Through the power of Facebook,

a post from Mrs Ebrahim’s

private Facebook page with only

a photo and their first names,

Irene, Tasos and Nicolas, reached

a Greek media outlet.

“Help . . . do you know these

people from Crete? . . . We hope

that someone may know this

family so we can learn more about

them and meet their descendants.

Without their help the next three

generations would not be here,”

Mrs Ebrahim wrote on Facebook.

In an almost unbelievable turn

of events, the wife of the chief editor

was the daughter of Nicolas,

one of the children of the family

who had helped her grandfather,

almost 80 years ago.

Nicolas was 16-years-old when

he met 22-year-old Mr Wright

and is still alive today at age 89.

He told his family he remembers

helped Kiwi soldier during WW2

They are expecting a warm

welcome in Crete and have been

told excitement levels are high for

the meeting.

“Everybody over there is so

excited that we are coming. I have

heard that the people of Crete are

very thankful for what the New

Zealanders and other allies tried

to do to save their island from the

Germans,” said Brian.

When the war broke out in

1939, Mr Wright and his older

brother George volunteered and

were sent to Burnham Military

Camp.

On January 5, 1940, Mr Wright

and George, both members of the

20 th Infantry Battalion, boarded

the troopship Dunera, bound for

Egypt.

They later sailed to Greece,

where they fought until retreating

to Crete.

On May 20, 1941, Germany

launched Operation Mercury, one

of the most dramatic battles of

World War 2, which later became

known as the Battle of Crete.

As German forces looked to

take control of Crete, more than

half of the allies were evacuated

to Egypt by the Royal Navy and

the remainder were forced to

surrender or join the Cretan

resistance.

Mr Wright was left stranded

in Crete and taken prisoner

alongside another solider, Stanley

Hughes.

George became ill in Crete and

was transported home.

“From what we know, he was

very unwell when the Germans

arrived and it seems strange

but basically they just bundled

him back to New Zealand. He

obviously wasn’t considered a

threat because he was so ill,” said

Brian.

In a book, One Soldier’s War:

The Campaigns of Greece, Crete,

Western Desert Egypt and Italy,

by Stanley Hughes, Mr Hughes

shared part of his journey in

Crete with Mr Wright.

Starvation played a big part

during their time in the war, with

POWs only fed one bowl of soup

twice daily.

In the evening of June 22, Mr

Wright and Mr Hughes escaped

the prison camp through the

fence and disguised themselves

among olive trees, aware the area

was being patrolled by German

guards.

They then travelled on foot

for many days, hiding in the

forest and in caves. They often

received small amounts of food

from locals willing to take the

risk.

Eventually they arrived in a

village named Cambos.

EARLY DAYS: Arthur Wright,

22, in Egypt in 1940. He

travelled on the troopship

Dunera from New Zealand to

Egypt before being sent to

Greece.

What was the Battle of

Crete?

•Crete is the largest island

of Greece, located south

of the mainland in the

Mediterranean Sea.

•It became a German

target following its rapid

occupation of the Greek

mainland in April 1941.

•There was more

than 42,000 British,

Commonwealth and Greek

soldiers on the island,

including about 7700 New

Zealand soldiers.

•Just after dawn on May 20,

1941, Germany launched

Operation Mercury, in Crete,

one of the most dramatic

battles of World War 2.

•It was the first occasion

where German paratroops

were used en masse, the

first mainly airborne invasion

in military history. There was

about 22,000 paratroopers

and mountain troops.

•After day one, the Germans

had suffered heavy

casualties and the Allied

troops were confident they

would defeat the invasion.

•The next day, through

communication failures,

the Allies hesitated and the

Germans gained control

of an airfield in western

Crete, enabling them to

land reinforcements and

overwhelm their defensive

positions in the north.

•The battle lasted for 12

days before Allied forces

then withdrew to the south

coast. More than half were

evacuated to Egypt by

the Royal Navy and the

remainder surrendered or

joined the Cretan resistance.

•About 2180 New

Zealanders became

prisoners of war and

another 671 were killed.

•Some Allies took to the

hills, sheltered by the

Cretans who, to this day,

remember New Zealand’s

role in the battle.

•It was the first occasion

during World War 2

where German troops

encountered widespread

resistance from a civilian

population.

•As most Cretans wore no

uniforms or insignia, the

Germans felt free of all

of the constraints of the

Hague Conventions and

killed hundreds of armed

and unarmed civilians.

Vietnam, one great experience

Helloworld Rolleston owners and Kirwee residents Paul

and Sue Robinson recently returned from a conference in

Vietnam, where they also took part in a unique tour of the

battlefields and tunnels with Matt McLachlan Battlefield

Tours in Southern Vietnam.

Matt McLachlan is a war historian and has a world-renowned

knowledge of battlefields where New Zealanders and

Australians fought from the Western front to the Pacific.

This was especially poignant for Sue as her father served

in Vietnam, and they were able to visit areas where he was

stationed.

This particular tour focused on areas such as Nui Dat and

the New Zealand and Australian Combat Base from 1966 to

1971. It included extensive investigations and exploration

of the surrounding tunnels along with an in-depth review

and attendance at Long Tan, where New Zealanders and

Australians were on patrol with a mere 108 soldiers, who held

off an overwhelming force of 2500 North Vietnamese.

“The complete tour was a moving experience,” says Paul.

“The exploration of the Cu Chi Tunnels and learning about the

way the North Vietnamese lived and understanding how they

conducted war manoeuvres was quite impressive.”

“It was amazing to learn how these tunnels contained living

quarters and hospitals as well as communication centres

and supply routes throughout the Vietnam War,” Paul adds.

“These tunnels have been in existence since 1948, following

a conflict with the French before the Americans entered the

war. To see how they linked to other areas and even across

into Cambodia was quite staggering.”

Vietnam is a growing destination and those looking at heading

over there to experience the culture and wonderful landscape

should definitely tag on a unique tour. Paul and Sue’s visit

included a crazy Vespa tour, which sees over nine million of

“the family car” in and around the greater Saigon area.

“There’s a total lack of road rules,” says Paul, “but somehow

in all the organised chaos it all works, traffic lights are

merely a suggestion yet we saw no accidents, I don’t know

how but it just seems to work…go figure. The Vietnam trip

was one great experience!”

Prisoner until end of war

•From page 13

They stayed on the outskirts,

sleeping in the forest a short

distance from the houses as

German soldiers raided homes

in the night, trying to find allied

soldiers.

“Among the people who

visited us daily were the

Kalogeri family who appeared

to be a well educated business

type family,” said Mr Hughes.

The Germans weren’t just

targeting the allies, they also

brutalised innocent Cretans,

killing many in order to set an

example of what would happen

if they were caught hiding the

enemy.

Flyers were dropped all over

the island requesting soldiers

who were on the run to surrender,

or they would be treated

as a spy.

Eventually, Mr Wright

handed himself over to German

forces, in fear of getting his new

friends in trouble.

Mr Wright remained in Crete

as a prisoner until December

1941. He was then transported

by boat to Salonika and cattle

truck to Stalag VIIIB, a prison

camp in Lamsdorf, Germany.

His work experience and

knowledge with trees before the

war proved helpful, and he was

used to train the other soldiers

for work, gaining him privileges

In January 1945 in freezing

conditions, Mr Wright took

part in a long march to

Czechoslovakia.

In May, they were told the

Americans were 30km away

He was a POW until May 8,

1945.

Eventually, Mr Wright was

repatriated to England in a

Lancaster bomber and after a

Zealand.

Mr Wright went on to marry

and raise two sons while living

Peacocks moved before

they could be shot

• By Louis Day

NINE peacocks were relocated

from the Port Hills last week

after five were shot.

The peacocks have been

relocated to a farm in

Marlborough. However, seven

peacocks remain.

The relocation effort comes

after a neighbourly dispute

between Janelle Wills, who feeds

the wild peacocks, and farmer

Sue Stubenvoll, who does not

want them wandering on to her

property.

In February, Ms Stubenvoll

sent a legal letter to Miss Wills,

saying she had the right to

shoot the peacocks under the

Impounding Act. She gave Miss

Wills four weeks notice.

Last month, Ms Stubenvoll

arranged for someone to shoot

five peacocks which were on

her property. She then skinned,

roasted and ate one of them for

dinner. Ms Stubenvoll said she

has not decided whether she will

shoot more.

News of the incident appalled

local residents, with some taking

to the community Facebook

group ‘Lyttelton – Ain’t No Place

I’d Rather Be’ to vent their anger.

Ms Stubenvoll then called the

police after she was branded a

murderer by various residents.

She said the culling was to

prevent the peacocks eating

the rare gecko and skink

populations which live on the

farm.

Celebrity chef Richard Till

even appeared to cook and eat

one of the peacocks on Seven

Sharp. Miss Wills said she did

not watch it.

She said she was still losing

sleep after five of the peacocks

were shot.

“It is still very stressful because

we don’t want to wake up to

more dead,” she said.

Miss Wills said she needs

more time to relocate the

remaining seven.

Dumbstruck by the Wiggles

WOW, WHAT a week.

I never thought I would have

got so excited to see a children’s

show, but I’m re-living my

childhood vicariously through my

daughter.

Laura and I took Vittoria to

the Wiggles last week and it was

amazing. I kind of feel like the

first parent to see Shrek when

I say there was definitely some

jokes in there for the adults too,

which is why I liked it so much.

It’s not just because I like the

songs and stuff.

It was a big surprise for

Vittoria, not that it was hard to

keep it from her, and it totally

blew her little Wiggle-loving

mind. Honestly, it was watching

her love it which really made it

for me.

I so wish I had managed to

get it on film, but when they

came out on stage her wee mouth

fell open so wide you could’ve

driven the big red car right on in

there.

The running theory for me

and Laura is that Vittoria was

struggling to comprehend

that her favourite colourful

Australians were actually real.

Dancing along with her was a

blast, she knows a bunch of the

actions and at home she even

gets excited if you say the word

“Wiggles” while standing near the

TV.

Only thing was, she

To cap the week off, Vittoria

and I have moved out to North

Canterbury for a few days to look

after my mum and step-dad’s

place in Waikuku while they’re

It’s just us two and two small

Rams win top six rugby encounter

Jim Doyle reports on Lincoln University’s game against New Brighton

5min for Ngane Punivai to

score off a New Brighton

touch.

Then early in the second

half, he weighted a chip

kick perfectly, ran onto it

himself, and was away to

the line. Antonio Shalfoon

capped a typically strong

game with a crash-over

try near the end. Right on

for substitute wing Brian

Broadfield A top premier netball

their first win and went

They will now drop to the

going undefeated in the

West Melton face a

Thank you for

helping your

Fall Zones

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

B

A

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

66,000 volts 4.0m 5.0m

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.

Leo’o goes from understudy to teacher

• By Gordon Findlater

FORMER openside flanker

Johnny Leo’o spent five years

at the Crusaders as an

understudy to arguably our

greatest All Black.

Now he’s passing on

knowledge from his playing days

to the next generation.

Leo’o, 40, is a health and fitness

teacher and director of rugby

at St Thomas of Canterbury

College. In April 2002, he made

his Crusaders debut before going

on to make 48 appearances. He

also scored six tries for the side

between then and the end of the

2007 season.

While at the Crusaders,

Leo’o won Super Rugby titles

in 2002, 2005 and 2006. But he

was perhaps unlucky to be an

openside in the same team as

Richie McCaw.

“The timing probably wasn’t

the best,” said Leo’o.

“When I was playing it was

probably a negative, but at the

same time having someone

like that to measure yourself

up against gave me a lot of

motivation to get fitter because

he’s a machine. I’ve got a lot of

respect for him because he’s a

great man and I learnt a lot off

him as well.”

Leo’o grew up in Invercargill,

where he didn’t start playing

rugby until age 12.

“I was quite a skinny kid –

mum was too scared I was going

to get hurt and thrown around.

MENTOR: Johnny Leo’o in his role as director of rugby at

St Thomas of Canterbury College.

The old man was always bringing

home registration forms but she

would always put the brakes on

that very quickly,” said Leo’o.

He moved to Christchurch

with his family as a teenager and

attended Aranui and Hillmorton

high schools before playing first

XV rugby at St Bede’s College.

At the end of 2001, Leo’o found

out he was going to become

a professional player with the

Crusaders. Until that point, he

had held down part-time jobs

while playing in the NPC for

Canterbury, which included

social work, lifeguard patrol,

groundsman work and picking

onions.

“Anyone that’s picked onions

before will know it’s hard work

. . . all the boys would be going

to do weights at the gym and I’d

just go onion picking. I probably

got stronger than they were,”

said Leo’o.

One of Leo’s fondest memories

during his time at the franchise

was when he was named to start

in his first match.

“I got told and thought the

coaches were making a joke,

•Great players have come and gone from the Crusaders

over the years. Selwyn Times continues to catch up with

some of them.

because Richie had been starting

the whole year,” said Leo’o.

“I even went and hit Richie up

and he didn’t know what was

going on.”

While he did start on

several occasions, Leo’o is best

remembered by fans as for

bringing a spark off the bench.

“I loved the razzle-dazzle style

of throwing the ball around. As a

loose forward, I loved playing in

the centres and getting my hands

on the ball and looking for offloads.

We had guys like Marshy

[Justin Marshall] and Razor

[Scott Robertson] who loved to

play like that as well.”

Part of that playing style is

likely to be why he also spent

two years on the international

sevens circuit with New Zealand

between 2000 and 2001.

Off the field, Leo’o says there

was no shortage of laughs and

pranks being played within the

Crusaders squad.

“There was a stage when a lot

of socks were getting cut. You’d

go to put your socks on after a

match and your foot would go

right through the sock,” said

Leo’o.

“There was also times when

someone’s shirt would have the

selves cut off or dyed pink. No

matter how hot you got at the

after match it meant you couldn’t

take your blazer off.

“Marshy was always involved

with that. Ben Hurst, Caleb

Ralph and the Mauger boys

played some good ones as well

. . . it was always in the spirit of

having fun and we did have a lot

of fun.”

Following his stint with the

Crusaders, Leo’o spent seven

years in France playing for

Racing 92. He then returned

to Christchurch and spent

two years working at the New

Zealand Institute of Sport before

taking up his current role at St

Thomas’.

“I always wanted to get

involved in youth and sports,

even cultural stuff. I’m also

heavily involved in my Samoan

church,” he said.

Long journeys

to new home

Long-time Selwyn residents and new arrivals joined the ranks of new New Zealanders this month.

A group of 25 people from nine different countries including South Africa, the Philippines, Korea

and India became citizens at the Council’s monthly citizenship ceremony last week. Rachel

Henderson, from England, was one of a number of people taking up citizenship after a long time

of calling New Zealand home—telling the room she had decided after 30 years here that it was

time to make it official.

Among the newer arrivals was Martin Kovac, from Slovakia. Mr Kovac met his wife, who is

from Darfield, while the pair were working in the UK. After two years of travelling in Europe they

decided to take a trip back to New Zealand, encouraged by family and the offer of work. Though

Mr Kovac admits New Zealand wasn’t quite what he expected.

“In my eyes it’s in the middle of the middle of the ocean, it’s green, I thought New Zealand was

like Fiji or something.”

Despite not turning out to be his tropical island dream, he says the pair fell in love with New

Zealand as they spent their first year travelling the country. Six years later the couple are settled

in Doyleston and with a baby on the way Mr Kovac says it made sense to fully embrace his new

home as a Kiwi.

International artist going digital in Leeston

Selwyn residents will get a sneak peek at the excitement of 3D as part of a feast of digital art next week.

Three 3D printers will be at Leeston Library next week for people to try them and discover as part of the

fun being brought by digital artist Erica Sklenars.

From Monday to Saturday Ms Sklenars, the artist in residence at Leeston Library, will be using the

printers, projections and film to make art. An interactive artist, she is inviting people to watch her work,

join in and maybe see their work printed and walk away with a souvenir.

The Kiwi artist will also be giving a talk on Tuesday about her work pushing the bounds of technology

to make art. Ms Sklenars has worked around the world, including touring with New Zealand band The

Black Seeds and fashion label Nom*D, and putting on a show for Weta Workshop. Her most recent

work was as an artist in residence in Hong Kong.

On Friday and Saturday people will be able to get their hands on the 3D printers. Ms Sklenars will be

hosting two workshops where she will be guiding participants through the process of turning a digital

idea on a screen into a three dimensional artwork.

Bookings are required for the workshops, visit selwynlibraries.co.nz.

Vote 2019: candidate

nominations opening soon

Thinking about standing for the Council or Malvern Community

Board this year? It’s time to start planning and getting organised for

the upcoming elections.

Council chief executive David Ward says Selwyn is blessed with

many community-minded people who give their time generously in

local clubs, sports, committees and community organisations.

“Now’s the time for these community leaders to consider using their

skills in local government,” he says.

“Standing for local government is a great way for people to take

the next step, and have a meaningful say on the issues that directly

affect their communities.

“It’s also an excellent opportunity to develop their leadership skills.”

Mr Ward says it’s important that communities are supported by a

diverse group of representatives with the skills, abilities and training

to respond to major community issues.

“In Selwyn especially, we face some critical decisions in the coming

years about how we respond to our continuing growth – what

facilities and services are important, and how we prioritise our

spending to benefit the whole district.

“These are the issues that get debated around the council and

community board table, and our residents want to feel confident

their representatives will make the best decisions. We also hope

that with a good selection of capable and enthusiastic candidates,

even more people will be encouraged to vote this year.”

In Selwyn, elections will be held for the mayor and 11 councillors,

along with five members of the Malvern Community Board.

Voters will also vote for representatives on the Mid Canterbury

Constituency of the Canterbury Regional Council (Environment

Canterbury) and the Canterbury District Health Board.

Nominations for candidates open on 19 July and close on 16 August.

Voting papers will be delivered in late September and voting closes

on Saturday 12 October.

Anyone considering becoming a candidate

can find out more by downloading the

candidate handbook from the Council

website at selwyn.govt.nz/elections or

attending a candidate information evening

on Thursday 4 July, at 7pm, at the Council

offices in Rolleston.

CX-9 integral part

of pamper package

THE OFFER of a pamper

package at Hanmer Springs

was too good to turn down

– hot pools, spa, massage

and an overnight stay all

included.

The car my wife and I

drove to the township in

was a Mazda CX-9 and it fitted

the occasion, it is quiet,

refined and superbly comfortable

on the undulating

North Canterbury roads.

The seven-seat CX-9 is

not new, the latest generation

sports utility vehicle

landed in New Zealand in

2016; however, it has had a

bit of a refresh and a high

grade variant has been

added to the line-up. There

are now three models,

rounding out with what

Mazda label Takami.

Takami is something you

are going to hear a lot more

about from Mazda, it adds

just that little bit of extra

sophistication, sitting over

and above Limited variants

and, as in the CX-9’s

case, add several features

such as nappa leather trim,

rosewood panels and aluminium

trim items.

These sit on top of what

would ordinarily be a wellspecced

vehicle in the first

instance.

Those familiar with the

CX-9 pre-2016 will relate to

the feisty V6 engine which

characterised the line-up.

That has long gone, today’s

CX-9 has a turbocharged

2.5-litre four-cylinder

engine.

If the thought of a

turbocharger has you a

little perplexed, you need

not be concerned. The

turbocharger is low boost,

and the engine, and its

management protocols,

are structured so that the

engine works consistently

in the area of low revs. Sure,

it will meet the 6000rpm

red-line with little provocation;

however, there is

a strong, flat torque curve

which meets its maximum

at 2000rpm (420Nm). Add

in 170kW at just 5000rpm,

the realisation is that the

engine is going to work

tirelessly at low speed.

Power is transferred

through a traditional sixspeed

automatic transmission.

This is another area

Mazda does really well, the

ratios and the shift management

system work well

with the low revving nature

of the engine, the gaps

between gears are filled

through the turbo boost,

while acceleration is clean

and smooth.

The CX-9 is no slouch,

even without working hard

it will still accelerate to

100km/h in 8.8sec, and will

make a highway overtake

in 4.7sec. On our journey

MAZDA CX-9 TAKAMI: High grade trim and

specification over and above Limited.

north I made use of several

overtaking opportunities

and always enjoyed that

solid mid-range punch that

you get from a big fourpotter

and the boost from a

turbocharger.

Interestingly, the CX-9

gets a driver-selectable

sport mode, but even

without the heightened

engine urgency it is still

responsive. I didn’t use

sport mode much, but far

preferred to let the engine

operate at its area of greatest

efficiency.

• Price – Mazda CX-9

Takami, $67,895

• Dimensions –

Length, 5075mm;

width, 1969mm;

height, 1747mm

• Configuration

– Four-cylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2488cc, 170kW,

420Nm, six-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.8sec

• Fuel usage –

8.8l/100km

The benefit of the engine’s

low revving nature is also

that of fuel economy. It’s

no surprise the CX-9 is

thrifty, Mazda’s SkyActive

programme leans towards

efficiency, and it claims an

8.8-litre per 100km (32mpg)

combined cycle average,

which fits well with the

9.2l/100km (31mpg) readout

during our journey. At

100km/h the engine is turning

over at just 2000rpm

in sixth gear, offering a

7.8l/100 (36mpg) instantaneous

figure.

Considering the CX-9

weighs in rather tubby at

just on two-tonne, these

figures are impressive and

are a credit to the Mazda

engineers who, for a long

time now, have been plugging

away at driveline

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

efficiency. All CX-9 models

are now four-wheel-drive,

which makes it’s economy

even more remarkable.

The 4WD set-up will

take you off-the-beaten

track without being fully

classified as an off-roader.

However, with a ground

clearance figure of 220mm,

it does have useful off-theseal

capability.

Personally, I see the alldrive

function as a medium

to glean grip on all surfaces,

the CX-9 has an on-road

feel which is quite reassuring,

it feels tightly connected

to the road surface, and

even in the wet there is

surety through the steering

which must be considered a

safety feature. On that subject,

the CX-9 easily qualifies

for a five-star Australasian

New Car Assessment

Program safety rating.

My wife never travels

light, but her suitcase was

no match for the cavernous

cargo area. With the rear

seats folded flat that area

measures up to 810-litres;

if you are seven-up then

that area is compromised to

230-litres, but that matters

little, the CX-9 is very

much a competitive battler

in the large SUV category.

As much as I liked the

detailing in the Takami

grade, I’d be an entry-level

buyer, at $59,695 against

$67,895 you are getting

a lot of value for money.

However, I fully appreciate

that SUV buyers like

all the bells and whistles,

and that’s what you get

with CX-9 Takami, it is a

luxury car at an affordable

price. For the record, the

non-Takami Limited grade

comes in at $65,295.

I have a certain affinity

with Mazda, there’s one in

the Kiddie garage, I like the

way the product is quality

built and the technology

constantly surprises me.

New Zealand’s temperate climate means

farmers produce world-class livestock

from grass-based outdoor systems. High

standards of animal welfare are a key part

of any successful, sustainable livestock

enterprise, and farmers take great pride in

managing their stock in the best possible

way, to produce high quality products.

Keeping grazing livestock at a

comfortable temperature makes good

sense for both animal welfare and

productivity reasons, especially at times

of the year when livestock are vulnerable

to either very hot weather or cold, wet,

windy conditions. This includes when

animals are heavily pregnant, around

lambing and calving, and immediately

post-shearing.

By providing shelter or shade, the

farmer can reduce adverse impacts on

livestock, mitigate the risks and impacts

of the weather on farm productivity and

enhance the reputation of the livestock

industry in the eyes of the public and

consumers. Planting trees or live shelter

also creates a more pleasant living

and working environment, enhances

biodiversity, prevents erosion, improves

water quality, and improves the value of

the property both in economic terms and

recreational use.

Sheltering against cold, wet and windy

weather can benefit livestock productivity

and welfare in a number of ways:

• Better food conversion efficiency and

increased growth rates – more shelter

means less energy spent keeping cool or

warm

• Better survival chances for young

lambs and calves

• Reduced stress on vulnerable animals,

such as heavily pregnant ewes and cows,

or any sheep post-shearing

• Better pasture growth and utilisation –

warmer temperatures encourage growth;

animals will graze more evenly over

widely sheltered areas

• Reduced drying of pastures reduces

moisture loss

• Better reproductive performance –

rams and bulls, especially lowland breeds,

will perform better in more sheltered

environments.

Shade too can contribute to animal

welfare and productivity, reducing the risk

of heat exhaustion and sunburn.

Sound environmental

farm management

needn’t cause grief

The new effluent system

It has been two years since Marv

Pangborn had his dairy farms and support

properties near Rakaia audited by an

independent farm environment plan

auditor, and the outcome of today will

affect his farming business going forward.

At his last audit, Marv received two B

grades and one A grade for his Selwynbased

farms. The audit showed he needed

to check the efficiency of all irrigation

systems, improve effluent storage and

pond management, and undertake

a quantitative assessment of the soil

moisture status on the run off block to

meet an A grade standard.

With the goal of achieving three A

grades this year, Marv had some work to

do.

Under the Canterbury Land and Water

Regional Plan, all consented farms in

Canterbury are required to have a farm

environment plan (FEP) which identifies

on farm risks and sets out how the farm is

going to manage its environmental impact.

All FEPs must be audited by an

independent auditor and the results are

reported to Environment Canterbury or

an irrigation scheme as part of its consent

conditions. Farms achieving a C or D

grade are considered non-compliant and

are required to be audited more frequently,

while farms achieving an A or B grade

are compliant and are audited once every

two to four years depending on consent

conditions.

Farm auditor Alison van Polanen first

met Marv two years ago and is revisiting

his farms understand what changes to

infrastructure and management have been

made since his last audit.

“Our role is to understand the

parameters each farm operates within and

assess its progress towards meeting good

management practices. We do this through

a combination of discussions, reviewing

records and an on-farm assessment.

“We advise farmers of solutions, but

rather to identify when something isn’t

meeting good management practice. If a

farmer seeks further clarification we can

provide examples of what and how we

have seen other farmers achieving good

management practice, but it’s the farmer

who determines what is appropriate and

relevant for their farm system,” Alison

says.

In the past two years leading up to this

farm audit, Marv has spent hundreds

of thousands of dollars upgrading his

effluent ponds and irrigation system as

well as investing in bucket testing and

soil moisture monitoring in the hopes of

reaching that A grade.

Overlooking his old effluent storage

system, Marv reflects on how things have

changed.

“Back when we got our previous effluent

system, we could get no one to help us

design it - there was no one doing it.

There was no effluent calculator and we

designed it too small with only about 7-8

days storage which we thought was lots,

because we were coming from a system

where we only had one day storage,” he

says.

This year, he installed a new effluent

system which now includes 30 days

storage.

On his run-off paddock, he shows

Alison how he’s made changes to the way

he irrigates. At the last audit, he only had

one pivot, but now he’s using a fixed grid

and two pivots and has found land has

been much more productive.

“The farm used to be irrigated in a 16-

day round with 50ml of water at a time;

now we’re using 5 ml at a time but more

frequently which has helped with the

leaching. We use half as much water than

what we used to, and the land has been

more productive.”

Having reviewed Marv’s farm

environment plans, nutrient budgets and

other data as well as viewing changes he’s

made to infrastructure on farm, Alison

was able to award him three A-grades.

“Receiving an A grade was pleasing as

it showed we are on the right track and

means that I do not have to spend the time

and money on an audit for another three

years,” Marv says.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Strawberries can be grown anywhere

STRAWBERRIES are one of the

most popular edible plants to

have in the garden. And it’s not

hard to work out why.

They’re tasty of course. But

they have a couple of other great

factors going for them. They can

be eaten straight from the garden

– always a plus.

But more importantly they can

be grown just about anywhere. It

really doesn’t matter what size of

garden you have or whether you

even have a garden at all.

Strawberries can be grown in

almost anything – a cut off drainpipe,

a planter box, in the garden

bed, in a hanging planter and

more.

As long as they can see the sun,

and your garden bed or ‘planter’

is well-drained, you can expect

great growing results.

Strawberries are best planted in

June or July. Or, if you live down

south, probably best to wait until

August when the soil is a little

warmer.

As with all plants, soil preparation

is important. Strawberries

prefer a soil pH of 5.8 to 6.2,

which is slightly acid, so you

shouldn’t need any lime.

You can enrich the strawberry

bed by digging in potash and

composted vegetable matter to

provide a boost of food for the

plants as they grow, and fowl

manure to reduce the pH.

Planting in a pot or container?

Use a top quality potting mix and

for an extra boost of goodness

apply a liquid fertiliser to the mix.

Before planting raise your garden

bed by mounding the soil.

This will encourage circulation,

drainage and can add depth to

shallow soil.

Plant your seedlings around

the edges of your garden or pots

to encourage the strawberries

BACKYARD CRITTERS

to hang over the sides and prevent

the fruit from touching the

ground and rotting.

Dig a hole 10cm deep and place

the seedling inside. A deep hole is

required to give the roots plenty of

room to spread out and grow but be

careful not to bury the plant. Pack

the soil firmly around each seedling.

Plant each seedling around 300mm

apart from the next.

Once planted it’s important

to keep them well watered at all

times. When the weather starts to

warm up during spring it’s a good

idea to surround the seedlings

with peastraw or newspaper to

help keep away weeds and retain

water. The more moisture they

get the juicier the fruit will be.

Place netting or wire over you

plants when they begin to produce

fruit. This will block out

birds and ensure you get to eat

the strawberries yourself.

In spring, add another dose

of general fertiliser to your

strawberries to encourage sturdier

plants that are more disease

resistant heading in to the warmer

months.

Then sit back and wait till

Christmas to enjoy the sweet sensation

of your own hard work.

Once your strawberry harvest

has finished, if you’re using

hanging baskets or similar

containers, it’s best to pull out

your strawberries and plant new

ones after a year to freshen up

the soil (don’t forget to use new

potting mix).

But if they’re in your garden,

your strawberry patch will last

a couple of years. After this you

can simply use a combination of

your runners and new plants to

create a new patch.

week he introduces a new species found in his backyard at Lincoln. His column aims to raise

A EUROPEAN fly that has now spanned

most of the world is the lesser house

fly known scientifically as Fannia

canicularis.

THis 4-6mm fly is smaller and slimmer

than the common house fly and has

the characteristic behaviour of silently

circling in the middle of the room

around lampshades.

THe fly is hairy and the male of the

species has pale yellow bands on its

abdomen.

During its two to three-week life

expectancy, females can lay up to 20,000

white eggs in batches of about 50.

Eggs have wing-like flanges that allow

them to float in liquid medium. Animal

excrement, compost and kitchen waste

are common places for larvae.

It is also known as a species associated

with myiasis or fly strike where eggs laid

on live sheep develop into maggots that

eat into the flesh.

THis usually starts around the rear end

of sheep where excrement or dags create

a suitable environment to establish.

How to choose the best

heating for your home

Choosing the best type of heating for your home

during winter is not an easy task, particularly when

there are so many options available.

It pays, in more ways than one, to think

carefully about how big an area you need

to heat, do you want it warm all the time

or is it just overnight like in a bedroom,

where a smaller electric heater would

work. It will always be difficult to heat an

entire home from a single source.

For larger living areas it is worthwhile

investing more money pay for a fixed

heating source with lower running costs

such as a heat pump, flued gas heater, wood

or pellet burner. By identifying the square

metres need for the heating means that

you can then look at the manufacturers’

recommendations and size the heating

source from their instructions.

Check the local council regulations

for what heat sources you are allowed

as there are different rules for those less

than 2ha in size from properties that are

more than 2ha.

As far as wood fires are concerned

make sure you have the right size for your

needs. All fires need to be run hot so if

the fire is too hot for the room you are

in running it with a small fire can lead to

problems.

Most clean air fires will not achieve an

overnight burn. If this is important there

are some low and ultra low emission

burners that will achieve this.

If you like the effect of a fire but are over

the hassle of buying and stacking wood

and cutting kindling then consider pellet

fires. They are convenient, you control the

heat and they are wi-fi capable meaning

they can be operated remotely.

Running costs of all heating options

can vary a lot depending on your fuel

price and how well you use and maintain

your heating appliance.

Always talk to a specialist retailer, they

have the knowledge and experience to

assist your decision making process.

Beautiful lawns

BEFORE

make a difference to

how your home looks

A beautiful well looked after and maintained lawn can really

set off your home and makes a huge difference to how it looks.

Canterbury Lawns are specialists in great looking

lawns whether it is an instant roll-out lawn or

hydroseeding. Their roll-out lawns use top quality

products and are locally sourced.

Hydroseeding is a cost effective option and can

still be applied during the cooler months but may

take longer to seed depending on the location and, of

course, the weather.

Hydroseeding is a spray-on application of water,

grass seed, wood fibre mulch, fertiliser and tackifier

(a glue which holds the mix to the surface it is sprayed

on). This method give the best chance for the seeds

to germinate and become your beautiful green and

luscious lawn.

Canterbury Lawns owners Zac and Ashley Swale

live locally and can give the best advice on growing the

perfect lawn. Watering is key and Zac recommends

having an automated irrigation system installed

to make the job easier, more convenient and more

efficient in terms of water use. He is happy to provide

advice regarding the best type of sprinklers for your

property’s needs.

Winter is a great time to take advantage of a quieter

period and utilise Zac’s other areas of expertise ahead

of summer with getting a head start on landscaping

and tidying up or refreshing the look of your property.

The services of Zac and his team are wide and

varied and can cater for all your needs including

pruning, tree trimming, site clearing and preparation,

patios, paving, decking or getting boxing ready for

concreting.

Canterbury Lawns not only works close to home

on residential properties but also specialise in

commercial and larger-scale work, bringing to any

job a high level of both expertise and enthusiasm.

Zac and the team are also specialists in erosion

and dust control for both commercial and residential

areas. Their hydroseeder can hold large quantities at

a time making the job more efficient and they can

source top quality products to suit each job.

For more information phone Zac on

027 456 7777 or visit their website at

www.canterburylawns.co.nz.

Ways to save

power during

winter

It is expensive to heat your home during

the winter so keeping the cold air out and

the warm air in can help save costs. Here

are some simple ideas that might help

reduce your winter power bill.

Draw curtains at dusk to keep the heat

from the day in and consider installing a

DIY window insulation kits which reduces

the loss of heat through the windows.

Try and stop draughts throughout the

home by adding special tape around

windows and doors, making sure windows

fit their frames and placing door snakes or

draught excluders at the bottom of doors.

Turn your heaters off when you are not

there including heat pumps and set your

heater thermostat to 18 or 20 degrees. Close

any doors to make the area you want to heat

smaller. Do not use unflued gas heathers

as they can release toxic fumes and make

your house damp. Cheap portable electric

heaters are safer and cost less to run.

Air your home by opening windows and

doors a few times a day to let the moisture

escape and sleeping with your bedroom

window open a crack also lets out the

moisture that naturally builds up over the

night. Dry clothes outside where possible

as moisture from wet clothes on indoors

airing racks will end up in your home.

Turning lights off when you are not using

them is an easy way to save energy around

your house and replace incandescent light

bulbs with energy efficient LEDs - and save

$100 or more a year on electricity in your

house.

Heating water is expensive so using less

hot water will help reduce your energy bills.

Using an efficient showerhead still gives you

a great shower, but uses much less water. To

check the flow rate of your shower, put a

10 litre bucket under the shower. If it fills

in less than a minute at normal showering

temperature, your showerhead is wasting

water. An efficient showerhead has a flow

rate of 9 litres per minute, or less.

Reduce your shower times. A 15 minute

shower costs around $1 while a five minute

shower costs around 33 cents. Use cold

washes for your laundry as most washing

machines and detergents clean well using

cold water. A hot water wash can use 10

times more electricity than a cold wash.

Finally turn off those appliances left on

standby including televisions, stereos, game

consoles and computer equipment.

Making simple changes now can go a

long way to reducing your power bill over

the colder months.

Gutter guard

extends life of

your spouting

The warm winter weather to date means

that those annoying autumn leaves are still

falling and clogging up the spouting. The

solution is a Gumleaf Gutter Guard.

“Leaf litter remains damp and acidic and

that wrecks the spouting,” says Rohan Rudd

from Gumleaf Gutter Guard.

“By having a gutter guard installed, the life

of the spouting is extended to the life of the

roof.”

Snow can also damage spouting, and

again Gumleaf Gutter Guard will protect the

spouting by spreading the load, Rohan says.

The Gumleaf Gutter Guard also helps

with preventing birds from nesting in the

spouting during spring. The eggs and young

chicks attract vermin which can then get

inside roof cavities and rats and mice can

then chew through wiring creating a fire

hazard, he says.

Gumleaf Gutter Guard is an effective way

of preventing birds from making nests in

the spouting, and perching on the spouting

and soiling walls and windows with their

droppings, while also protecting tank water

from being contaminated, ensuring the

safety and quality of the water supply.

Developed in Australia more than 20

years ago, Gumleaf Gutter Guard has been

providing a quality and effective solution

in New Zealand for the last decade, Rohan

says. Much of his work comes from repeat

business, with customers happy with both

the product quality and the service he

provides.

Customers requesting a quote will receive

it within 24 hours, and Rohan says he will

“go anywhere to provide a quote”.

He is also available Monday to Saturday to

speak to customers who call him.

“Even if I am working on a job, I will talk

to anyone who calls me,” he says.

Once a quote is accepted, the job is started

within 10 days, with installation on an

average sized house taking one to two days.

Rohan also does any necessary minor repair

jobs on the roof at the same time.

To discuss your requirements with

Gumleaf Gutter Guard, phone 0800 486

532, or email rohan@gumleaf.co.nz.

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

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.”

Building on a budget

Building your own home is one of the biggest investments of a lifetime and with

a few clever tips we show you how to make the most of what you can afford.

Get smart with your money to achieve

your dream home without compromising

on what’s really important.

Consider buying a large plot of land with

friends or family which you can split into

smaller lots. Many great

locations tend to cover

more ground, so get the

stunning harbour view

you dream of by sharing

the cost with someone you

don’t mind having as a

neighbour.

Opting for lowmaintenance

building

materials, like vinyl siding

and metal roofing saves in

the long run. Although

they may be more

expensive to install you

will save money on future

repairs, replacement or

repainting.

Using salvaged and recycled

materials and componentry

from the abundance of

demolition sites around the

city not only adds valuable

character to new builds, but

can save money, too.

For the safety and security

of your home, don’t skimp on structural

elements, doors and windows. Buy the

very best you can afford and, together

with your architect or builder, determine

other areas you could save on to allow for

a few luxuries.

It’s important not to waste valuable cash

on overbuilding. Look carefully at the

existing properties in the area and be

Deciding exactly

what you want

and then sticking with

it will ensure you stay

on budget, on time,

and all with

minimal stress.

aware that building a home that is bigger

and better than those of your neighbours

will not necessarily equate to a fair price

if and when it’s time to sell. instead, the

value of your build will be determined

by the lower-priced homes

around it.

The experience of a wellqualified

contractor is an

invaluable asset in any

building project. Not only

will you have recourse

should anything go wrong,

but their experience in

the industry means they

will have established

relationships with suppliers

and subcontractors, whom

they trust to deliver the best

workmanship possible.

Keep a close eye on

construction allowances as

your home is being built

to ensure you are getting

what you asked for and

what you paid for. if you

had initially agreed on

using a specific brand, for

example, then don’t settle

for less, unless you discuss

a cost adjustment with your

builder or contractor.

Many a building project has snowballed

out of control in the financial department

due to changes being made to the design

and materials once building is already

underway. Deciding exactly what you

want and then sticking with it will ensure

you stay on budget, within your expected

time frame, and all with minimal stress.

Property Market Update

with Property Brokers

Buyers attracted to Leeston

Penny, Tony (Branch Manager) and Angela.

Solid activity boosted by a steady

stream of new residential housing

subdivisions has meant Rolleston has held

the real estate limelight in recent years.

While other parts of Selwyn have been

quieter, market activity has increased

since the beginning of the year. Towns like

Leeston saw large increases in sales in the

first quarter, with confidence remaining

high through April and May.

Tony Quayle, Branch Manager for

Property Brokers says people are attracted

to towns such as Leeston as they offer the

opportunity to get more for their money

with properties generally more affordable

than the equivalent home or section in

Rolleston.

After the abnormality created by the

earthquakes where an initial shortage

of homes saw a rise in property values,

capital gains have stabilised with more

moderate gains. The massive increases of

four to five years ago are no longer there.

In Leeston, property prices have also been

steady, reflecting the quieter

market throughout the country.

“With Rolleston now moving

into offering smaller lots, people

are considering other towns in

the district. While the Leeston

market had been quieter, there

is now more interest in the area

as buyers can secure a larger

section or newer home for less,”

suggests Tony.

Rolleston’s newer subdivisions

mostly feature

sections of 500-700sqm in

the $170,000-$200,000 price

bracket. The equivalent land in

Leeston usually sells at a lower

price though land availability

is limited with some section

releases like the Clausen Avenue

development.

In Leeston, a budget of

$500,000 can secure a newer

four bedroom home on a larger

section. Older homes like a

120 year old cottage or villa

and newer existing homes may

sell for between $320,000 and

$400,000. With fewer homes in this price

bracket in Rolleston, first home buyers

seeking a larger home and section are

looking to move further out.

“People are choosing to go to Leeston

as the properties available offer value

for money in a smaller rural town,” says

Angela Hunt, Residential Salesperson for

Property Brokers.

Angela and her colleague Penny

Dadson-Clausen both live and work in

the area.

“We’ve had tremendous support from

locals who like to support other locals and

the new Property Brokers’ Leeston branch

gives people more choice,” adds Angela.

Angela and Penny have been very busy

in the first half of the year. She says many

people selling are often upsizing while

others may be purchasing in another part

of the district. A number of buyers are

also moving out from the city, especially

first home buyers who are attracted by the

opportunity to have more for their money.

Marketing your property –

what does it mean?

Marketing a property is

more than presentation

and advertising.

Conceptually, marketing is

identifying what prospective buyers

are looking for then providing this. For

example, larger homes and sections

may appeal more to families. Young

couples starting out, generally have

tight budgets leading them to smaller

properties, while older people may be

looking to downsize.

Brand new has a particular appeal

however there will always be a market

for established homes. Having a

picture in your mind of the type of

buyer will help in determining the

features to emphasise.

If repairs and maintenance need

to be carried out before putting the

property on the market, seek the

advice of a real estate agent. They

can advise on what tasks are worth

completing and what might be

unnecessary expense.

Installing a new kitchen or changing

the carpet may lift the house but will

the expense be recouped in the sale

price? On the other hand, modernising

an outdated kitchen or bathroom

could make a huge difference to

the look of the place. Avoid going

overboard unless the capital value of

properties in the area justifies this.

Real estate agents are in contact with

prospective buyers so aware of what

they are looking for. Draw on their

expertise and advice to help make the

most of the selling opportunity.

Establishing a relevant and fair price

for a property is important. Most

agents calculate this based on the price

properties in the area have sold for,

and what a particular property has to

offer. A unique or exceptional property

may justify a higher price, though

run-down properties can gain more

than they appear to merit. This might

be due to the area or other factors that

suggest a good investment.

When promoting a property, mix it

up and be creative so your property

stands out from the rest. TradeMe

is a must; checked by most people

looking to buy. Present the features the

property offers as benefits to potential

buyers.

Erect a sign outside the property.

People stop and look at photographs

and this might spark sufficient

interest for them to visit an open

home. Spending a fortune on massive

advertising campaigns in every media

might seem a way to attract potential

buyers but may be an unnecessary

expense without the return. A better

philosophy could be a little often.

This will depend on the value of the

property, your budget and how best to

reach target buyers.

Buyer perception is also significant.

For example, properties that sit for a

while can become stale. Resting the

property by taking it off the market for

a short time, then relisting perhaps in

spring or when sales in the area appear

to lift a little, can make a difference.

However, if a property does not sell

immediately there is no need for panic

or dropping the price. It may simply be

that the right buyer has not yet come

along. If the mix is right your property

will sell.

If a property does not sell

immediately there is no need for

panic or dropping the price.
