Backlash expected over childcare funding

• By Devon Bolger

SOME DISTRICT councillors

are expecting a backlash over

a new policy which will allow

them and Malvern Community

Board members to be

reimbursed for childcare.

Councillors and community

board members are now able to

claim up to $6000 a year plus

Henrietta rides the

fast track to a big

future on two wheels

• By Jacob Page

HENRIETTA Christie is proving

age is no barrier to talent.

The 17-year-old Lincoln High

School student is currently

leading the under-19 category in

her debut Calder Stewart Racing

Series.

She also took out the South

Island secondary schools road

race and time trial titles last

week, pouncing at the right

moment to blitz the field at

Ruapuna Raceway.

The victories were decided in

vastly different circumstances,

with a convincing 1min 42sec

win in the road race, and a

split-second win in the time trial

over Invercargill’s SIT Southern

Hub rider Emily Paterson from

GST per child under-14

at an hourly rate of $15

an hour while on council

business. That includes

meetings and events.

Mayor Sam Broughton

and the 11 district

councillors unanimously

voted to pass the policy

at last week’s council

meeting.

James Hargest College.

“Conditions were good (at

Ruapuna Raceway) and there was

little wind, so I just had to wait

for my chance to attack, which

is usually straight after there’s a

break-away,” said Henrietta.

“It was good to win, but it’s

more something that was on my

agenda this year.”

•Turn to page 14

PROMISING: Lincoln High

cyclist Henrietta Christie, 17,

leads the under-19 category

in the Calder Stewart Racing

Series.

The policy falls under

the new Local Government

Members Determination

2019 law, which

came into effect on July

1 and allows councils

to consider paying back

childcare costs.

Malcolm Mr Broughton and

Lyall councillors Nicole Reid

and Craig Watson, and community

board member Megan

Hands, are the only current

elected members eligible for the

reimbursement.

The policy will be reviewed

annually and is expected to cost

$20,000 to $25,000 a year.

Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall

said he believes the policy will

ruffle feathers and result in a

backlash from the community.

“There’s always going to be

someone saying what are they

[the district council] doing? It’s

just a part of the job and I’m just

keen to get more young people

around the table and that is

what this is about,” he said.

It comes as ratepayers face a

six per cent increase in rates to

fund services and facilities in

the district. •Turn to page 5

SELWYN TIMES

YOU CAN call me a grump but ratepayers

will understandably be a bit miffed by

district councillors voting to reimburse

themselves for childcare.

That’s on you and me – the ratepayer.

And our rates have gone up six per cent

this year.

On page 1 today we reveal district councillors voted unanimously

to agree to a new policy which allows them to have

childcare paid for up to $6000 a year when they attend meetings

and other council business and events.

The policy is aimed at encouraging more people to stand for

local politics.

The mayor and district councillors are paid, and a number

also have jobs and businesses.

Should ratepayers be paying for their childcare?

to be demolished by council

A BUILDING in Lincoln’s main

street described as a blot on the

landscape has been bought by

the district council – and will be

demolished.

The purchase of 5 Gerald St is

part of major changes planned

for the retail heart of Lincoln.

Lincoln

Chinese

Takeaway,

which currently

leases

the building,

will move

around the

corner to the

former site of

Lynn Townsend The Pantry

in Robert St.

The district council’s property

manager Douglas Marshall said

the purchase price was $300,000.

Last year the district had an

independent valuation done,

which valued the property at

$285,000 plus gst, he said. The

rating valuation of the property

is $355,000.

Long-time Lincoln business

owner Lynn Townsend welcomed

it would be demolished.

“It’s been an eyesore for a

long time and never should

CHANGES: The building currently leased by Lincoln Chinese

Takeaway faces demolition.

have been built there in the first

place. I’m very pleased to see the

council have got a hold of it,” Mr

Townsend said.

“It’s a great move, councillor

Grant Miller seized the opportunity

for Lincoln ratepayers

and did a good job, I’m happy it’s

now in council hands.”

The building is likely to be demolished

by the end of the year.

It would be the first step to

opening up the retail precinct

area and transforming the street

appeal, said Mr Marshall.

“There’s been interest from

people in Lincoln over many

years in doing something new

with that site and this was an opportunity

to open up the space

with a fresh welcoming area to

the new town centre.”

Options for the space including

a park or reserve, Mr Marshall

said.

The town centre plan, adopted

by the district council in 2016

after extensive community

consultation, will develop public

spaces and squares, provide for

safe cycling and walking connections

along with adequate

car parking and promote ‘active

frontage’ with buildings placed

to the edge of the footpath and

facing the street with car parking

behind.

The design of the Gerald St

plaza around Robert St proposes

widening the pavement to create

a pedestrian plaza along

the shop fronts with different

paving, street furniture and

landscaping.

Redevelopment of the site

purchased by the district council

will allow this to happen more

easily and in keeping with the

rest of the town centre design,

said Mr Marshall.

In Brief

MOTORIST INJURED

A motorist has escaped with

moderate injuries after the car

he was driving hit a power pole

last Thursday. Lincoln chief fire

officer Jeremy Greenwood said

the crash happened on Tancreds

Rd, Lincoln. The man was taken

to hospital.

TRUST REPRESENTATIVES

The district council has selected

its representatives to help

decide on the new trustees for

the Central Plains Water Trust.

Mayor Sam Broughton and

councillor Murray Lemon were

appointed to a joint committee

with the city council.

EMERGENCY ROUTES

The district council has

identified no emergency routes

at risk from earthquake-prone

buildings. In 2018 and early

2019 the district council

undertook a process to check

buildings and carry out public

consultation to identify if

any public road, footpath or

thoroughfare was at risk of an

unreinforced building falling on

it during an earthquake.

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 farms working and families in your

community warm, happy and healthy.

You can be proud of the fact that you kept the local cowsheds

milking, water pumps pumping and sheep shearers shearing.

You may not think that what you’ve done has had much impact

on your neighbours, but from all of us here at Orion, we just

want to say thank you.

Notice and Growth limit zones

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.

Tourists boost Selwyn economy

SELWYN’S ECONOMY has

continued its strong growth

backed by a “whopping” increase

in tourist and local spending

according to latest economic

data.

The latest quarterly economic

monitor from analysts

Infometrics showed the Selwyn

economy continued to grow well

ahead of national and regional

averages.

The report showed Gross Domestic

Product growth in Selwyn

increasing at 4.9 per cent in

the year to

March 2018

compared

to 2.5 per

cent growth

nationally and

1.6 per cent

growth across

Sam

Broughton

Canterbury.

Selwyn had

the largest

increase in

spending by tourists nationally,

up 13.2 per cent for the year,

with tourists spending $117 million

in the district. It also highlighted

a 13.6 per cent increase

in electronic card transactions to

$89.2 million.

Council community services

and facilities group manager

Denise Kidd says the figures reflect

the positive growth district

council has seen.

“They’re confirming to us

what we know, that Selwyn is a

great place to visit, to live and to

do business.”

The growth in commercial

building consents continued

strongly with the district council

issuing 39 new commercial

building consents in the first

three months this year with

growth expected. In contrast the

report showed slowing building

by businesses in the wider Canterbury

region.

Unemployment also stayed at

2.2 per cent, unchanged from

the same time last year and

almost half the national average

of 4.3 per cent.

Mayor Sam Broughton says

the strong figures were a positive

reflection of the continuing

development and maturing of

the district’s economy.

“The report shows how

we’re taking advantage of the

rapid growth that continues in

Selwyn. It’s particularly positive

to see visitor and tourism spend

increase which helps bring

diversity to our economy and

highlights what a great place we

are to visit and stay.”

Cr Lyall said it was not a high

real sacrifice to do this job and

this is one way to make it easier

for young families.”

Cr Watson, who is not standing

in October’s local body elections

to pursue National’s nomination

for the Selwyn electorate, said he

is expecting some anger from the

public.

“People are always going

to complain but at the end of

the barriers for people wanting to

be on the council, it’s not about

money it’s about making it a

said.

policy.

WEST Melton teenager

Maddie Collins is

desperately fighting to save

her new kidney after signs

it may be failing.

Her mother Sarah

Manson-Collins said

Maddie, 15, is currently

struggling with declining

“These are complications

from a failing kidney

and right now we are just

trying to maximise her

best chances to save it,”

Kiwi acts will include

We’ve accepted that this

is just where we are at the

moment,” Mrs Manson-

Collins said.

“She’s been sick for 10

years and it’s exhausting.

I really feel for Maddie a

lot.”

She suffers from the

kidney disease, nephrotic

syndrome.

Maddie received a

‘miracle’ second kidney

transplant in January last

year after being told there

was only a two per cent

chance of finding a match

in New Zealand.

Maddie’s first kidney

was donated six years ago

by her father Adam, but

her body rejected it.

The family didn’t

expect to be able to find a

second kidney match in

New Zealand. They were

“At the moment, no. We

Maddie is a passionate

Foster Park contractor chosen

• By Devon Bolger

THE COMPANY which will

build the $21 million Foster Park

indoor sports facility has been

decided.

But what that company is

remains a secret.

The district council voted

behind closed doors last week to

decide which of four companies

would get the contract.

A district council spokesman

told Selwyn Times the name of

the successful tender would be

publicly released next week.

He said the delay was due

to the district council needing

time to inform the unsuccessful

tenders of the decision.

Four companies were shortlisted

and presented their bids

and concept plans to an evaluation

panel of two district council

staff, two councillors and an

independent consultant.

The panel put forward a

recommendation to the district

council which was voted on in

at the council meeting. The vote

and discussion was publicly

excluded due to commercial sensitivity,

the spokesman said.

The multi-purpose indoor

courts facility will include four

‘competition standard’ courts

capable of hosting local and

regional competitions.

PROGRESS: An indoor sports facility for Foster Park is one

step closer, a contractor has been chosen.

Four covered courts for sports

such as netball, tennis, basketball

and futsal, as well as a flexible

space for the community events,

markets, exhibitions

It will also include a sports hub

building to accommodate changing

rooms, toilets, storage and

meeting space.

Six million dollars of the total

project cost will come from

development contributions, with

the majority funded by the council

through targeted rates.

Once the project is completed,

Foster Park will be the largest

sport and recreation park in the

district.

Extension for quarry

hearing process

THE DEADLINE for the

public hearing process over the

contentious quarry consent

application between Weedons and

Templeton has been extended.

Originally, the hearing for

Fulton Hogan’s proposed Roydon

Quarry had to be completed

within 75 working days of the

submission period closing (the

deadline was October 10).

Fulton Hogan has requested

Environment Canterbury and the

district council extend the time

frame for the hearing – which the

district council and Environment

Canterbury agreed with.

The hearings process now does

not have to be completed until

January 23. The reasons for the

extension was to allow time for

all parties to prepare, review and

respond to evidence prior to the

hearing and allow for a robust prehearing

process for all parties.

Both council have made a recommendation

the hearing begins

on November 18 – this is yet to

be granted.

Public submissions that have

been collected in relation to the

applications will be discussed at

the hearing and decisions on the

proposed quarry will be made.

The hearing is likely to be

lengthy, with 170 submitters to

be heard and significant expert

evidence to be considered.

Meanwhile, the commissioners

for the hearing have been

appointed.

The district council finalised

the three-person panel at its

meeting last week.

It will be made up of Sharon

McGarry, Paul Thomas and

chaired by Rob van Voorthuysen.

Mr van Voorthuysen has been

chosen as chairman because of

his experience in leading large

and contentious hearings –

including Environment Canterbury’s

Land and Water Regional

Plan.

He has acted as an independent

commissioner for more than

275 hearings and has served as a

chairman for 180 of them.

Ms McGarry is ECan’s appointed

commissioner.

She has expertise in deciding

regional council consents and in

dealing with planning and technical

issues.

Mr Thomas has been appointed

by the district council. He has

particular experience in the

planning and technical issues

associated with district council

consents.

Accused gunman’s fuel

SELWYN TIMES

Fire rages, homes at risk

stop caught on CCTV

• By Barry Clarke and

Louis Day

POLICE HAVE searched CCTV

security camera footage to follow

the accused mosque gunman

on his route from Dunedin to

Christchurch on March 15.

It includes security footage

from an Oamaru service station

where he stopped for fuel.

But police are refusing to say

whether the vehicle was carrying

explosives which were found

when he was apprehended after

the attacks on the Al Noor

Mosque on Deans Ave and

Linwood Islamic Centre.

The accused gunman’s vehicle

was rammed to a stop on

Brougham St, Sydenham. Two

armed Selwyn police constables

got him out of the vehicle and he

was handcuffed.

Explosives were in the vehicle.

A Z Oamaru service station

staff member said they found out

later they had served the accused

gunman, but they were not

allowed to give any more details.

Z head office would also not

comment.

When asked if there was

a risk to the public from the

explosives when the accused

gunman stopped for fuel in

Oamaru, police said: “While

the investigation is ongoing,

we are not in a position to go

into specifics around those

enquiries. The matter is now

before the courts and we will

not be jeopardising any future

prosecution,” a spokeswoman

said.

Police have used CCTV footage

from many locations between

Dunedin and Christchurch to

follow the accused gunman’s

journey, which is part of the

evidence for the prosecution case.

The accused gunman has

pleaded not guilty to 51 murder

charges, 40 attempted murder

charges and one terrorism

charge. A High Court trial is

scheduled for May next year.

ECOSYSTEM: The fragile vegetation and soil at Greenpark Sands near Lake Ellesmere is

being damaged by vehicles.

arrested by two Selwyn constables on Brougham St.

• By Devon Bolger

CONSERVATIONISTS are

concerned over the damage

vehicles are causing at Greenpark

Sands near Lake Ellesmere.

Waihora Ellesmere Trust

members frequent the area

and were shocked by state of

the reserve. General manager

Denise Ford

said vehicles

are having a big

impact on the

fragile area.

“Not only do

many vehicle

tracks criss-cross

the area, but

Denise Ford

also it is evident

that some people

are doing donuts and other acts

that cause damage to the fragile

vegetation and soils.”

Ms Ford hopes the Department

of Conservation, iwi and the

community can work towards

protecting the sensitive area.

“Greenpark is an ecologically

significant area. It is badly in

need of information signage

and ways of stopping hooligans

from entering onto the sands.

Sadly previous signs erected by

DOC have been vandalised and

destroyed.”

Greenpark Sands is a DOC

reserve which runs along

the north-west shore of Lake

Ellesmere. It is considered one

of the top five locations in New

Zealand for viewing wetland

birds, including arctic waders.

DOC senior

living water

ranger Robin

Smith said

some of Lake

Ellesmere’s

wetlands

are taking a

hammering from

off-road vehicles. Robin Smith

“The impact

of vehicles – four-wheel-drives,

quad bikes, light utility vehicles

– has resulted in substantial loss

of low stature native saltmarsh

vegetation, soil erosion and at

times disturbance to wading

birds,” Mr Smith said.

DOC will be working with

Ngai Tahu, Fish and Game, the

district council and landowners

to address the issues and identify

practical solutions, he said.

Bus service

trials extended

TRIAL COMMUTER bus services

in Darfield and Leeston have been

extended until the end of October.

The Leeston service is also being

extended to include Southbridge

from Monday.

The number of users for both

services remained relatively steady

through May, with an average of

around 45 boardings per day on the

Darfield service and around 30 per

day on the Leeston service.

Environment Canterbury senior

manager public transport Stewart

Gibbon said that funding has been

made available through the Environment

Canterbury Annual Plan

to allow the trial services for at least

the next four months.

“It’s encouraging to see the strong

level of support from the Selwyn

community to continue these services,”

he said.

“We’re happy to confirm they will

continue to be provided on a trial

basis, meaning that we are likely

to test out different options to see

further growth in patronage, particularly

for the Leeston service.”

This will involve extending

the Leeston service to and from

Southbridge. Environment

Canterbury’s public transport team

is working now on confirming the

exact route extension to Southbridge

and the timing for implementation

of this and will inform the

community as soon as possible.

Bid to boost response team

• By Devon Bolger

THE DARFIELD Community

Response Team was formed

quickly after the 2010 earthquake

when it became clear there was

a need for better emergency

management.

“A few respected members of

the community started

thinking that we need a

group to help in these kinds

of situations,” team leader

Andrea Horton-Gaskin

said.

Since then the group

has grown to include 22

members.

The team’s job is to bridge the

gap between the district council

and the community during an

emergency.

Ms Horton-Gaskin said they

play a critical role when needed.

“Darfield is quite isolated and

far away from where the council

is based so we rely heavily on our

members to set up emergency

centres and to manage the early

stages.”

But the Darfield Community

Response Team is struggling to

find volunteers.

“We want to increase our

number of street contacts we have

because in an emergency we will

be based at the community centre

and won’t be able to be on the

ground.

Sue Jenkins

“We need people to report

back to us on the situation and

to check in with neighbours and

things like that, we just don’t have

enough of them,” Ms Horton-

Gaskin said.

The response team is hosting

a high tea next weekend in an

attempt to drum up more

members and to thank

their current ones.

Community resilience

co-ordinator Sue Jenkins

manages the community

response teams for the

district council.

She said the Darfield

team is incredibly vital in an

emergency and new members are

always needed.

“They are critical to keeping

Darfield connected and informed

during a disaster or emergency,”

Ms Jenkins said.

She said she encourages

everyone to get involved.

fostering a child?

We are looking for people in the Christchurch area who are willing to

open up their home to *Matt. He needs a home that can provide him

with support, care and unconditional love and guidance in a clear, fair

and consistent way. Matt is looking for caregivers who enjoy outdoor

activities and have a spacious yard.

Matt is an enthusiastic, funny and

curious 16-year-old boy who is

looking for a long-term home. He

has overcome many challenges in

his life and has grown immensely

from these experiences. He has a

strong need for belonging which he

has rarely had. He is kind, helpful,

and eager to get on well with other

people. He also loves outdoors,

biking, Minecraft and animals.

Matt has an amazing sense of humour, although requires support to

express his feelings and needs. Matt is currently working on building

positive relationships and will require ongoing support.

We welcome carers who have the time, energy and the ability to

provide a loving home. These are the most important things we look

for in our foster carers. We will provide ongoing and intensive clinical

and financial assistance as well as training to all our carers to ensure

they always feel supported and enabled to do their best.

Fostering a child in need is challenging but truly rewarding. As a carer,

you’ll provide consistent and responsive support and attention to help

them make sense of their world.

Selwyn United under-13s to take

on world’s best at futsal champs

• By Jacob Page

THE SELWYN United Red

and White under-13 futsal

team will head to the world

championships in Florida this

week eager to cause an upset.

The team qualified for the

championships by winning the

Craig Foster Cup tournament

on the Gold Coast in January.

They will face teams from

high-profile clubs, such as

Barcelona as well as LA Galaxy

and DC United from the United

States, in the indoor version of

football.

Matches will be broadcast

globally on ESPN and the

event will be the largest

international youth futsal

tournament in the world.

Head coach Benji Lapslie said

he can’t wait for the boys to get

out on the court in Florida.

“Over the last six months,

many hours of hard work has

been put in by these lads to have

the best opportunity to succeed

on the international stage. From

a coaching point of view, I have

given them the tools to go away

and put New Zealand on the

futsal globe. For the kids, it’s

an opportunity of a life time to

succeed and have the chance to

play teams ranked No 1 in the

world.”

Lapslie, who is a New Zealand

futsal representative himself,

said he wants his team to

embrace the pressure of the

tournament.

“Having played on the

international stage myself, I am

aware how raw emotion can

take control, so keeping them

calm and relaxed will be the

biggest test.”

•From page 1

Henrietta also competed at the

Oceania road championships in

March, where she finished third

in the junior women’s individual

time trial. But she said domestic

racing is likely to be her major

focus this year.

“I’m really focusing my

efforts domestically this year

because I’m too young for the

international opportunities I was

looking at,” she said.

Henrietta is taking on older

riders for the first time in the

South Island Calder Stewart

Racing Series and has proved

more than capable. After three

of six rounds, she is setting the

pace in the under-19 category

and is second overall in the elite

women’s category.

“It’s been a learning experience

for me, racing against women has

definitely been more physically

demanding than what I’m used to

racing at secondary school level.”

The series now takes a break

before returning for round four

in Nelson on September 26.

Henrietta said she will continue

to train hard, clocking up 250km

a week on the bike.

Selwyn Times

Whopping spending growth

for strong economy

Selwyn’s economy has continued its strong growth backed by a “whopping” increase in tourist

and local spending, according to latest economic data.

The latest quarterly economic monitor from analysts Infometrics showed the Selwyn economy

continued to grow well ahead of national and regional averages.

The report showed Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth in Selwyn increasing at 4.9% in the

year to March 2019 compared to 2.5% growth nationally and 1.6% growth across Canterbury.

Selwyn had the largest increase in spending by tourists nationally, up 13.2% for the year, with

tourists spending $117 million in the district. It also highlighted a 13.6% increase in electronic

card transactions to $89.2 million.

Council Community Services and Facilities group manager Denise Kidd says the figures reflect the

positive growth the Council has seen.

“They’re confirming to us what we know, that Selwyn is a great place to visit, to live and

to do business.”

The growth in commercial building consents continued strongly with the Council issuing 39

new commercial building consents in the first three months this year. In contrast, building by

businesses in the wider Canterbury region slowed over the same period.

Unemployment also stayed at 2.2%, unchanged from the same time last year and almost half the

national average of 4.3%.

Mayor Sam Broughton says the strong figures were a positive reflection of the continuing

development and maturing of the district’s economy.

“The report shows how we’re taking advantage of the rapid growth that continues in Selwyn. It’s

particularly positive to see visitor and tourism spend increase which helps bring diversity to our

economy and highlights what a great place we are to visit and stay.”

Steps taken in Lincoln Town Centre Plan

Preparation for the Lincoln Town Centre development has taken a significant step forward with the

Council’s purchase of a property on Gerald Street.

The Council has secured a key site at 5 Gerald Street, which sits at the entrance to the proposed east

retail precinct.

It hopes to demolish the building, currently occupied by Lincoln Chinese Takeaway, before the end of

the year as the first step in opening up the retail precinct area and transforming the street appeal, says

Property group manager Douglas Marshall.

“This is the first major step in making something new that people in Lincoln have been looking forward to

for a while. There’s been interest from people in Lincoln over many years in doing some new with that site

and this was an opportunity to open up the space with a fresh welcoming area to the new town centre.”

The Council is considering options for the space including a park or reserve, Mr Marshall says.

The building’s current tenant was already looking for a new location for the business nearby, and the

Council is supporting them by offering a flexible lease until it is able to move. No work will begin until

the building is vacant.

The town centre plan, adopted by the Council in 2016 after extensive community consultation, will

develop public spaces and squares, provide for safe cycling and walking connections along with

adequate car parking and promote ‘active frontage’ with buildings placed to the edge of the footpath

and facing the street with car parking behind.

The design of the Gerald Street Plaza at the eastern end of Gerald Street around Robert Street

proposes widening the pavement to create a pedestrian plaza along the shop fronts with different

paving, street furniture and landscaping.

Redevelopment of the 5 Gerald Street site will allow this to occur more easily and in keeping with the

rest of the town centre design.

New Zealanders welcomed home

From Vladivostok to Christchurch, journeys were shared as 26 New

Zealanders were welcomed home last week.

The group from 11 different nationalities shared their stories of how

they came to call New Zealand home as they became New Zealand

citizens in the Council’s monthly citizenship ceremony.

Each new citizen spoke of how they came to call New Zealand home,

but there was a homecoming of a different kind for Tyler Hokianga.

Raised in Australia, Mr Hokianga told the room it was a visit to

see his parents back here in New Zealand that sparked a desire to

embrace his Kiwi heritage and officially become a Kiwi.

Nine of the group spoke about intending to visit New Zealand for

a short time on holidays, work or study and finding their partner.

Among them was Candice Trumper from South Africa.

“The one thing my father told me before I came was not to take up

with any Kiwi boys. Well, we fell in love.”

Others spoke of falling in love with the country and the way of life.

Originally from Sri Lanka, Lincoln University law lecturer Santiago

Ekaratne came to New Zealand for the lifestyle after studying and

working as a lawyer in Washington DC. “That was fun but I didn’t

get much sleep.”

Nina Kozhevnikova from Vladivostok in Russia who came for an

adventure and to visit family after her husband died, and Douglas

Dorrian, who moved from Scotland to South Africa before settling

here, also for adventure.

“New Zealand is such a great country for all the opportunities we

have – cycling, jumping off things, every day it’s great to be here.”

One of the loudest cheers of the night came for Celestina Ponseka,

who moved from the Philippines to New Zealand for work and soon

convinced her family to join her.

New funding confirmed for

tourism facility upgrades

Tourists and Selwyn residents will find comfort stops more

comfortable with new public toilets, upgraded systems and new

caravan dump stations to be built around the district.

This week the government announced Tourism Infrastructure Fund

support to expand the Lakeside Domain toilet facilities and upgrade

the waste water system at Coes Ford.

It is the latest in a series of upgrades to facilities around the district.

The Council has completed a new public toilet block in Dunsandel,

four new caravan dump sites, upgrades to two more and upgrades

to the Arthur’s Pass public toilet. Upgrades to the facilities in Kowai

Pass Domain and Rakaia Gorge are also under way.

The projects all received support from the Tourism Infrastructure Fund.

The new stand-alone four-pan toilet block in Dunsandel cost

$185,700 and has been built in front of the domain. Property group

manager Douglas Marshall says the location by the domain was to

support travelling public and users of the domain and provides safer

parking for cars, trucks and buses.

“The old toilet block will be closed and removed in a couple of

weeks’ time when it’s clear the new toilet is working satisfactorily,”

Mr Marshall says.

The four dump stations for caravans to empty waste have been

installed at Leeston, Tai Tapu, Lake Coleridge and Glentunnel, while the

dump stations at Kowai Reserve in Springfield and Rakaia Gorge have

been upgraded. The total cost for the dump stations was $90,000.

The new facilities and upgrades were important as tourism continues

to grow in the district, Mr Marshall says.

“With visitor numbers on the rise it’s a good time to make sure our

infrastructure is ready and to make the district even more attractive

to visitors.”

Springston march into semis and

• By Jacob Page

SPRINGSTON WILL be

favourites but they are unlikely to

have it all their own way if they

want to lift the Coleman Shield in

a fortnight.

Springston beat Hornby 33-12

on Saturday, booking top spot in

the Ellesmere competiton, and

will face Darfield in a semi-final

on Saturday.

Darfield, which easily beat

Rolleston 51-12 in the final

round and knocked defending

champions Waihora out in

the process, only lost 21-20 to

Springston a month ago in their

round-robin clash.

In the other semi-final,

Southbridge, fresh off a shock

35-35 draw against West Melton,

will host Lincoln at Southbridge

Domain. Lincoln beat Burnham

Dunsandel Irwell 28-17 in the

final round and are the only team

to beat Springston in a Coleman

Shield encounter which ended

21-20.

Southbridge will be quietly

confident of their chances of

making the final after beating

Lincoln by 15 points a month

ago.

Springston coach Anton

Sutherland said their confidence

is high heading into the semis.

“The guys are playing some

really good footy and it’s just a

case of keeping them confident

mentally going into the big

games.

Waihora miss out

“I think we’re going better

than we were 12 months ago

and that comes from a lot of the

guys knowing what to do in the

pressure moments,” Sutherland

said.

Darfield had to beat

Rolleston to book their spot

in the playoffs and did so

convincingly 51-12, thanks to

a hat-trick from Haigh Jebsen

and two tries to Michael

Brankin.

Sutherland said their semifinal

will likely come down to

an attacking battle between

both teams’ back three.

“(Darfield) are very explosive

on attack, especially at the back,

and so are we, but I think that

was an area where they shaded

us last time,” he said.

Lincoln co-coach Kris

Partridge said the round-robin

clash with Southbridge was

probably their worst game of

the season.

“Southbridge wanted that

game more. They were more

physical than us and outpassioned

us,” he said.

“We have to embrace the

challenge of this and since

they’re coming in off a draw,

hopefully that’ll give us

some confidence because up

until then they’ve been redhot.”

Waihora saw their top four

chances vanish as they were

thumped 35-10 by Prebbleton.

Desperation gets

win for Lincoln Uni

Jim Doyle reports on

Lincoln University’s game

against Shirley

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY made

the top-four in metro senior

rugby with a desperate 23-15

win over Shirley at Lincoln on

Saturday.

THe two will meet in a semifinal

this week after they finished

two and three on the table.

The cavalry arrived in the nick

of time for the Rams. Cullen

Grace and Fletcher Newell from

New Zealand under-20 duty and

recuperation. Harrison Courtney

and Callum Burrell back in the

saddle after injury.

You could almost smell the

intensity in the air as the Rams

went about their task with a grim

determination.

Courtney was primed and

pumped. So too was the powerfully

built Newell. The lad from

Rangiora scored an imposing

“Willie-Away” try off a Josh

Bokser lineout take after 29min.

Bokser had scored the first try at

the 5min mark by charging down

a clearing kick, something he did

against Marist Albion earlier in

the season.

LU had plenty of penalties in

the first half and Sam Gilbert

made Shirley pay three times.

But hey we’re talking about the

SPORT

first half here. After the break it

was more like Custer’s Last Stand.

The Rams were fighting for their

lives. Shirley spent long minutes

pounding away at the LU line in a

series of surges that had the Rams

reeling.

The visitors had two tries out

of it but probably deserved more.

Then again, LU’s last-ditch defenders

got through an enormous

amount of work.

Players from both sides were

out on their feet towards the end.

Surely there have never been so

many cramp attacks in a rugby

game.

Impressive Shirley No. 8 Siua

Maile had a great chance late in

the game with an almost open

field looming in front of him.

He pulled up lame with just one

exhausted defender to beat and

LU’s cover struggling under the

strain.

Scorecard: Lincoln

University 23 (Josh Bokser,

Fletcher Newell tries; Sam

Gilbert 2 conv, 3 pen) beat

Shirley 15 (Jayden Pearce,

Siua Maile tries; Cullen

Moody conv, pen).

Wine

SELWYN TIMES

Embracing the blend – it’s a matter of balance

• By Mark Henderson

THIS ASSORTMENT of wine

eschews the concept of single

variety wines in favour of

embracing the blend.

It is all a matter of balance

and synergy, where two, three

or more ingredients can create

a complete whole, while the

freedom of the blend allows

wine-makers to experiment and

‘’have a little fun’’.

Pegasus Bay’s Sauvignon

Semillon and Millton’s Les Trois

Enfants are old hands at this

game, while the new Vergence

typifies the test-bed approach,

with the Untitled range marrying

a diverse, multi-vintage, region

and variety approach).

2016 Pegasus Bay

Sauvignon Semillon

Price: $32

Rating: Excellent

Matchstick and a little wild

yeast funk soon blow off leaving

ripe pear, pea and grassy hints.

Powerful fruit offers breadth on

the palate, pear, pea pod, citrus,

sweetly fruited yet dry, a little

chalky grip a counterpoint to

the fruit. A zesty tangy element

runs like a laser beam through

the wine, to the delightfully long

finish that hangs in the

mouth.

A lovely food choice.

www.pegasusbay.com

2017 Millton Les Trois

Enfants Co-fermentation

Price: $21

Rating: Very good to

excellent

Surprisingly evolved colour

yet a fragrant and complex nose

of honey, citrus, roses and hints

of Turkish delight. The nose

suggests sweetness but this is

dry; the silky and supple palate

offering dry honey and musk,

orange zest, grilled grapefruit

and a bittersweet almond note

on the fresh, lifted finish.

Beguiling, intriguing and

rather fascinating.

www.millton.co.nz

2016 Vergence White by

Pegasus Bay

Price: $27

Rating: Very good to excellent

Somewhat subtle nose, struck

match, smoke and bramble, a

little wildness too. A game of

two halves perhaps, as the palate

is bold with intense grapefruit,

orange, mandarin, dried herbs

and nuts.

There’s complexity on this

finely balanced, silky palate; a

zesty rush of acidity on the close

keeps this clean as a whistle,

while time sees an attractive

chewiness evolve.

www.pegasusbay.com

NV Untitled Pink Blend

Price: $20

Rating: Excellent

Multi region and variety blend.

Youthful, fresh and complex

nose of strawberry, apple skin,

citrus peel, peach and wine gum.

Creamy and attractive palate of

mixed berries apple and musk

moving into some savoury notes.

Delightfully, bright and zesty, dry

finish that hangs in your mouth.

NV Untitled White Blend

Price: $25

Rating: Very good

Multi vintage, variety and

region blend. Fragrant nose

that evokes tropical fruit salad.

Creamy entry, a crisp, fresh

palate with notes of cooked

apple, pip fruits, toffee and

a refreshing, ripe grapefruit

character that gives zestiness.

Fresh and appealing drinking

with a little wisp of salinity on

the finish that gets the salivary

glands going.

NV Untitled Red Blend

Price: $30

Rating: Excellent

Intriguing multi vintage, multi

region and multi variety wine

with a nose of red fruits, malt

biscuits, wild herbs and a tangy,

resiny note. This nods its hat to

Europe, its tanginess and juicy,

crunchiness suggesting a Kiwi

Beaujolais.

Fresh, bright, vibrant, nicely

balanced with an appealing

bittersweet element before

flowing to a cool, dry finish.

Gardening

Winter conditions require different techniques

TYPICAL WINTER conditions

now dominate with frosts, chilly

prevailing winds, wet and cold

soil – hardly inviting gardening

weather.

However, the gloom of winter

is ‘lightened’ by the appearance

of flowers on azaleas, camellias,

daphne, early flowering

rhododendrons and the first of

the flowering cherries ‘Prunus

campanulate’.

Houseplants

A reminder not to overwater

your houseplants in winter, some

plants require watering only once

a week. A light misting of indoor

plants with lukewarm water helps

prevent leaves from drying in

heated indoor conditions, you

may need to shift your houseplants

during the winter months

as parts of the house can become

too dark for healthy growth.

Vegetable garden

Continue harvesting winter

maturing vegetables, artichoke

(Jerusalem), broccoli, brussells

sprouts, cabbages, cauliflowers,

carrots, celery, leeks, lettuce,

parsnips, peas, silverbeet, spinach

and swedes. Spread compost

around maturing vegetables as

this helps absorb excess water

during winter downpours and

eventually improve the soil. By

raising vegetable plots drainage is

enhanced and vegetable growth

improved.

Flowering annuals

Winter flowering annuals

should now be providing masses

of colour in your garden and

containers. Remove dead flowers,

‘deadheading’ from the plants to

encourage continuous blooming

throughout winter. Flowering

annuals for winter display include

ageratum, calendulas, cineraria,

cornflower, nemesias, pansies,

poppies, primulas, snapdragon,

stock and sweet pea.

Fruit trees

After completing the annual

pruning of fruit trees, spray with

Copper Oxychloride to reduce

the possibility of fungal disease

reappearing in spring. Kiwifruit

can now be pruned as all the fruit

have been harvested. In warmer

areas a number of citrus are now

ripening, mandarins, lemons,

limes, grapefruit and early oranges.

Complete any plantings of

new pip and stone fruit trees.

COLD HANDS: July is the time to dig plenty of compost into

the soil and to prune plants.

Ornamental trees and

shrubs

Garden centres now have the

widest range of trees and shrubs.

July is a very ‘safe’ month for

planting so prepare individual

planting sites thoroughly with

plenty of compost.

Roses

Complete your annual rose

pruning, spray with Copper

Oxychloride after pruning. Plant

new specimens where required

as garden centres have excellent

supplies in July. Plant into wellprepared

soil to which compost

has been added. Prune your new

plants to outward facing buds

before planting.

Container gardens

Potted colour (winter annuals

grown to the flower stage) brightens

up a dreary winter garden

and provides an instant flowering

effect. Always use a good quality

container mix or potting mix.

Lawns

A quiet month for lawn

maintenance, but an excellent

time to have the blades on your

mower sharpened. Check for

wet areas in your lawn that will

require remedial drainage work

in summer.

Small bee with a very important future

OUR SMALLEST native bees

are called sweat bees, which

belong to the family Halictidae.

THe most common of

these bees is the 4-6mm long

Lasioglossum sordidum. These

species are the second most

common of all our native bees.

With long wings compared to

body size and moderately hairy

bodies, they have a fly-like

appearance.

Males have longer and thinner

abdomens compared to the

females, but both are black in

colour. Although Lasioglossum

sordidum have short tongues for

foraging, their small size allows

bees into a high proportion of

flowers.

Females have been recorded

foraging on 139 flowering

species. Although this bee is

considered a solitary species,

they do sometimes forage from

the same nest, suggesting some

degree of social organisation.

Nests are usually found in

soil in flat, open areas with little

vegetation. Entrance holes are

1.5-2mm in diameter but head

almost vertically downwards up

to 400mm.

Oval-shaped cells radiate

horizontally. Adult bees live

between 6 to 8 weeks.

With the grave concerns of the

global decline of honeybees due

to climate change, pesticides,

diseases and pests such as the

Varroa mite, these small bees

will be very important for

delivering pollinating services in

the future.

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

Is waste

SELWYN TIMES

milk ok for

calves?

Waste milk has traditionally been fed to

calves to dispose of milk that can’t be sent

for supply, but is this a good idea? With

an increased focus on the responsible use

of antibiotics, questions are being asked

about waste milk’s value as a feed source

for calves, and the risks this practice might

pose to the wider environment.

Waste (or ‘red’) milk is the milk

produced by lactating cows when they’re

sick and receiving antimicrobial treatment

for diseases such as mastitis. It also applies

to the milk produced in the withholding

period, which can be three to four days

after treatment.

Bacterial growth and

antibiotic resistance

Exposing a bacterial population (such

as the calf ’s developing digestive tract)

to low concentrations of antibiotics may

encourage bacterial growth with existing

resistance genes. It could also lead to other

bacteria mutating and developing new

ways to resist antibiotics.

The risk is that calves consuming this

milk will shed antibiotic-resistant faecal

bacteria into the environment. This could

have unintended consequences for your

calves, and for the future usefulness of the

antibiotic.

This is backed up by a substantial review

published in the European Union in 2017.

The review found that shedding was more

pronounced for younger calves (two to

three weeks old), compared to six- to

seven-week-old calves.

Fortunately, this shedding wasn’t

observed in calves fed colostrum from

cows previously treated at dry-off with

long-acting dry cow antibiotic products.

Unfortunately, pasteurising waste milk

won’t deactivate the residues, as most

antibiotics are heat-stable.

Calf health and growth

Although there are few studies on this

aspect, it’s likely that antibiotic residues

would interfere with calves establishing

good gut bacteria, or that pathogens and

viruses from older, sick cows could infect

the young calf. If there are more antibioticresistant

bacteria present in the gut, these

issues would be harder to control.

Although waste milk may be a

convenient feed for calves, is it worth

the risk for the health of the replacement

calf, or to the environment? One thing is

certain – it cannot be fed to bobby calves,

as the calf ’s gut is likely to absorb the

antibiotic residues and cause the carcass to

be rejected.

Find out more about calf care at

dairynz.co.nz/calves

From DairyNZ senior scientist Jane Lacy-Hulbert

Myth:

It’s ok to feed waste

milk to calves, so long

as it doesn’t go to bobby

calves.

Busted:

It’s NOT ok to feed

waste milk to ANY

calves.

Research to enhance future

livestock production systems

Seven Lincoln University PhD students

are looking at using benefits from the

natural environment to enhance future

livestock production systems.

The team of researchers

want to provide better diets

and grazing environments

for cattle, sheep and deer

in the agricultural sector,

which will help improve the

animals’ lives.

Lincoln University

Livestock Production

Professor Pablo Gregorini,

who is supervising the

students, says the importance

of animal welfare cannot be

overstated.

“People who pay for meat,

and would pay more, want to

know the animals have a life

worth living.

“These students are putting

in a lot of hard work to

help provide farmers with

nutritional and grazing

management tools to enhance their

livestock’s good lives as much as possible,”

Prof Gregorini says.

PhD student Konagh Garrett, who has a

particular interest in nutritional ecology,

is looking at how a diverse, varied diet for

animals can positively affect welfare and

environmental impact, while maintaining

or increasing animal production.

“Animals get sick of eating the same

thing over and over again

and dietary monotony

has been shown to cause

more stress,” she says.

“I’m studying 20 sheep

and early signs show

that animals on more

diverse, varied diets are

performing better, eating

more and putting on

weight.”

She is using sheep and

deer as models.

One of Konagh’s

fellow PhD colleagues,

Matt Beck, is concerned

with increasing dietary

biochemical diversity

for livestock. He’s

working with Callaghan

Innovation and Agriseeds

on promoting better

health and nutrition for dairy cows, sheep

and deer.

“Sheep who were given a biochemical

extract have been shown to change their

dietary preference and eat a wider variety

of plants. This can have implications for

Pablo Gregorini, Lincoln

University Livestock

Production Professor

animals when designing future diets. We

can design animals in utero to create a

better relationship between the animal

and its diet in future multifunctional

landscapes,” Matt says.

Cristian Moreno, whose research focuses

on the hill and high country rangelands

of New Zealand, is interested in the use of

native vegetation for grazing beef cattle.

“The aim of my research is to improve

animals’ distribution to ensure a more

even grazing of the landscape, to reduce

pressure on most fragile habitats, such as

riparian areas,” he says. “I want to identify

different grazing personalities of Hereford

cows by using GPS-tracking collars.”

Ultimately, the aim is to tackle farmers’

concerns about caring for New Zealand’s

rangelands while producing natural beef

cattle.

“By selecting those animals that

naturally explore and graze thoroughly on

the mountainous terrain, we will allocate

the right animal to the right landscape.

“Better use of landscape increases

the performance of animals, enhances

rangelands health and provides more

ecosystem services for society and the

environment.”

Cristian has been granted research funds

from the Miss E.L. Hellaby Indigenous

Grasslands research Trust and received

support and collaboration from the New

Zealand Hereford Association.

Leo Rescia, supported by the deer

industry, is also working on developing

the idea of the “right animal in the right

place”, while Anita Fleming is investigating

how the use of fodder beet affects

animal welfare, production and systems

profitability.

Cameron Marshall is studying a

divergent genetic line for a trait in dairy

cows that leads to less nitrogen in urine.

“By investigating how this trait is

working, I can look at how systems might

be better optimised for animals, leading

to improved production and a reduced

environmental footprint.”

To round out the suite of projects, Prof

Gregorini has been working closely with

Brandon Dalton from Grasslands LLC in

Lees Valley Station.

They are working on new and innovative

grazing management in high country

stations to capture more carbon and

enhance grasslands health.

Strong styling from Mercedes-Benz coupe

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

MY THOUGHTS are that if you

are paying over $180k for a new

car you’d at least expect it to look

the part.

That is certainly what Mercedes-Benz

has done with its E

Class coupe line-up. Well, the

entire E Class series looks pretty

spectacular, it arrives here in

sedan, coupe and convertible, and

each has presence, its size, shape

and detailing combine to give an

overwhelming sense of purpose.

The latest generation E Class

has been around since 2016 and

I’ve driven three variants, culminating

in this evaluation, the E53

AMG coupe.

I’m very enthusiastic about

the turbocharged V8 engine that

powers many models in the Mercedes-Benz

AMG performance

range, that generally has the

nomenclature 63, and at around

$200k the sedan would probably

be my pick.

However, the E53 coupe is not

disgraced as it, too, is a true performance

vehicle. Under the bonnet

sits a twin-turbocharged V6

engine of 2999cc. That engine is

also carried across the Mercedes-

Benz range with varying outputs

and in each case has remarkable

sound through the exhaust. In

the E53 that sound is still there, it

barks and spits during gear shifts

both up and down. The constant

rumble out the pipes can’t quite

be heard to the same extent as it

is in the soft-top, but the coupe

definitely has an audible presence.

I simply love it, I was forever blipping

the throttle and forcing shifts

just to hear the boom and crackle.

In terms of power outputs,

Mercedes-Benz claims 320kW

and 520Nm. If you add to that the

constant turbocharged boost you

know you are in for some excitement

when the roads allow a bit

of freedom.

Mercedes-Benz also claims a

4.4sec standstill to 100km/h time,

and by my stopwatch it will lunge

through a highway overtake in

just under 4sec (80-120km/h).

These are impressive times, but fit

well with the sporty nature of the

coupe, it has the performance to

match its powerful looks.

Yet, the big coupe is also docile

when the roads don’t allow for

performance, it will dawdle the

city streets without taxing the

driver, indeed the entire driving

experience is one of comfort

and relaxation. So competent is

MERCEDES-BENZ E53 COUPE: Dynamic performance and looks.

it at speed that the driver doesn’t

need to work hard to maintain

momentum, everything the E53

does, it does with ease.

On a stormy early winter

weekend I took the evaluation car

to Windwhistle before returning

to the city through Hororata

and Dunsandel. I had intended

to go further west towards Lake

Coleridge power station, but the

roads were tricky with snow piled

to the sides and ice a major threat.

However, I felt at ease in the E53,

it is majorly competent because

drive is channelled through a

nine-speed automatic transmission

to all four wheels.

On the greasy wet roads it was

great to have the reassurance

4WD offers, grip is high, and

even though there was a lot of

water under the tyres they never

felt like they would lose traction.

What’s more the driveline feels

biased towards the rear, promoting

a sporty feeling, powering out

of a corner lends to the sensation

that oversteer would be available,

of course, you can’t break traction

thanks to the trick control

systems, but the car does provide

all of the feel-good factors that a

dynamic suspension and driveline

offer.

There are also suspension settings

the driver can dial in for

him/herself. That’s the beauty of

an air suspension set-up, the ride

is glorious, yet can be firmed or

softened at will. If you haven’t

driven a car which utilises air

underneath, then I suggest you

give it a try, it is the ideal compromise

for comfort and handling,

the cushioning effect is simply

amazing.

In AMG form the E53 is fully

• Fuel usage –

specced with all of the upmarket

and luxury kit you’d expect for a

car of this price, they are all laid

out in the traditional Mercedes-

Benz style, the layout of the controls

is intuitive once familiar. It

also has the tweaks which provide

the performance factor, and that

is where the AMG badging comes

in, it adds to the dynamics of both

performance and looks.

As mentioned, if I was an E Class

buyer, I’d pay the extra $20k for sedan’s

V8 power and its five seats (as

opposed to four seats in the coupe).

However, don’t be misled, the E53

and its V6 engine represents true

performance and has the benefits

of beautiful styling. I’m a big coupe

fan, and I particularly enjoyed my

time in the evaluation car, the grace

with which it travels and the overall

design is something to surely

treasure.

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.

Incorporating show homes

in your planning process

13

There are many things to think about when you’re

considering building a new home.

Browsing show homes is a fantastic way

to get you thinking about practicalities,

needs, aesthetics and your wish list! Here

are a few consideration’s to help spark your

planning process.

• What is your exterior style? What kind

of homes do you like? Look around and

take a mental note of what you are drawn

to most.

• What kind of exterior materials do you

like? Once you’ve worked out the look

you like, research what materials are

available and find out about durability.

• How will you use your house? It’s

important to most people to have a good

indoor/outdoor flow and attractive,

sheltered outdoor living. Imagine your

home in various seasons.

• Landscaping is important. Look around

and consider what you like and don’t like.

Are you a structured formal garden type

or do you like a contemporary native

style?

• Sustainability and future-proofing

aren’t just buzzwords anymore. It’s

very important for your new home to

be environmentally friendly. Research

insulation requirements, solar hot water

heating, ventilation options and new

technology to ensure your home will be

affordable to run.

• Interior décor is really exciting. This is

where show homes can really help you get

to know current trends, colours, beautiful

furnishings and furniture. Collect home

magazines and figure out what you’d love

to emulate.

• Also, pause to give thought to

architectural components inside. Do you

remember a raised ceiling? What kind of

finishing do top homes use and which

styles are you drawn to?

• Heating is also a consideration. Have a

look at what show homes are offering.

• Kitchens form the heart of the house.

Show homes give you insight into the

latest styles, materials and storage

facilities available.

• Bathrooms are another big component.

They need to be as luxurious as you can

make them, so start dreaming.

Kitchens form the heart of

the house. Show homes

give you insight into the

latest styles, materials and

storage facilities available.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Design

perfection

Well thought out, is the best way to describe Online

Design and Build’s new showhome in Falcon’s Landing.

Encompassing the features desired in a

new build, along with a touch of flare, this

three-bedroom home is inviting while

practical.

Rather than adding a fourth bedroom,

Directors of Online Design and Build,

Canterbury South, Peter Hollow and

Linda Fowler chose to put more space

into the living area. The result is an

appealing 219sqm home.

Visiting this showhome will also afford

you the opportunity to assess how a

200-220sqm house sits on an 800sqm

section while inside, you will find many

interesting features; such as the feature

walls in both entry and lounge, created

through the continuation of the brick

veneer exterior walls.

Warm natural light floods through a

skylight into the interior kitchen, where a

slightly different approach has been taken

to the design of this important room.

The result is an appealing work space

complemented by a handy and good

sized walk-in pantry and generous island/

breakfast bar, beyond which is a spacious

dining/living area.

Scissor trusses run through the

complete living space with a comfortable

lounge/media room through double

doors to one side.

The home is well-appointed for the

sun with generous windows throughout,

capitalising on free energy and light. One

can easily imagine lazing away a day,

soaking up the sun streaming through

the large triple sliders in both lounge and

living rooms.

Inside the master bedroom there is a

feeling of a quiet haven where one might

escape, augmented by a plush ensuite and

walk-in robe.

Off the hallway and close to the living

area a separate toilet complete with

washbasin is ideally located for guests.

There is also a large storage cupboard

with sliders in the hall itself.

Along the hall, bedrooms two and

three have their own bathroom. The

design cleverly separates these with

the bathroom which in essence is three

rooms in one. It allows the vanity to

be available while others might use

the shower or freestanding bath (in a

separate room) or toilet (in yet another

room).

This home would suit parents who

want a degree of separation from their

teenagers, as well as empty nesters

seeking bedroom separation when people

stay over or so they can close off an area

of the home in the cooler weather. With

the second and third bedrooms in their

own part of the home, privacy is afforded

especially with the main bathroom

separating these two rooms.

Clad in Eurobrick Largo Arena and

Linea Oblique, Online Design and Build’s

Falcon Landing showhome sits well on its

section.

You can view Online Design &

Build’s new Rolleston showhome at 1

Amur Crescent, Falcon’s Landing from

Monday to Friday from 8.30am until

4.30pm and on weekends from 12noon
