prop leads

from the

front as

Darfield

advance to

shield final

Darfield rugby president

Scott McIlroy produced

the perfect example of

leading from the front

on Saturday by scoring

three tries in Darfield’s

22-21 last minute win over

Springston to reach the

Coleman Shield final. The

35-year-old prop took up

the president role after

what he had planned to

be his last game for the

premier side in their loss

to Southbridge in the

2017 Ellesmere final. But

‘Scones’, as he’s known at

the club, has been in hot

form, averaging nearly a

try a game since returning

to the side this year.

Man pulled

• By Devon Bolger

RESCUERS PULLED a man out

of the swollen Selwyn River after

he tried to cross it in a ute on

Sunday.

Dunsandel chief fire officer

Ian Chatterton said the brigade

was called to the incident near

McGregors Ford about 6pm.

The man had been

attempting to drive

his ute through the

river, but heavy rain

caused the water

level to rise rapidly

and he was unable

to get out.

He sat on the

roof of his ute for

as long as he could but had to

Ian

Chatterton

abandon it when it started floating

downstream. Mr Chatterton said

rescuers arrived to find the man

clinging to a shingle heap in the

middle of the river.

They were then able to get a

rope out to him and pull him to

safety. “He was doing pretty well

considering what had happened.

He was very relieved and happy,

and thanked us for the help.”

AROUND THE ankles son!

That is probably easier said than done

when it comes to stopping Darfield captain

Scott McIlroy (see page 1).

McIlroy scored three tries in his side’s

thrilling 22-21 win over Springston to reach the final of the

Coleman Shield.

McIlroy is 35 and went into “retirement” at the end of the

2017 season to take up the role as Darfield’s club president.

But the big boy, affectionately known as Scones, has found a

new lease of rugby life back on the field.

He has been averaging a try a match this season and has obviously

played a large part in Darfield’s success in 2019.

Finals day for all grades is at Prebbleton on Saturday. Should

be a fantastic day.

In Brief

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

Jolene Eagar

THE DECISION to extend the

deadline for a public hearing

over a consent application for a

quarry between Weedons and

Templeton is ruffling feathers in

the community.

Former

chairman of

the Weedons

Residents Association

John

McKim said it’s

disappointing

but not surprising

that Fulton

Hogan has

been granted the extension.

“The man with the biggest

chequebook always wins, and

that’s exactly what’s happened

here.”

Mr McKim has opposed the

quarry from the beginning and

said he feels like they’re out of

options.

“The only thing we can do is

object and hope the commissioners

have enough sense to make

sure residents’ concerns are

looked after.”

The Weedons Residents

Association disbanded after

the resignation of Mr McKim

EXTENDED: Fulton Hogan will have extra time to prepare for

the upcoming hearings over its proposed Roydon Quarry.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER ​

and secretary Gary Doyle in

February.

The Templeton Residents’

Association is also concerned

Fulton Hogan will be given an

“advantage” in its preparation for

the upcoming hearings over its

proposed Roydon Quarry.

Originally, the hearing for

the quarry had to be completed

within 75 working days of

the submission period closing

(October 10).

Fulton Hogan requested Environment

Canterbury and the

district council extend the time

frame for the hearing – it now

does not have to be completed

until January 23.

Resident association chairwoman

Jolene Eagar said she

can’t understand how the extension

is justified as being fair for

everyone.

An ECan spokeswoman said

Fulton Hogan has to wait for a

section 42A report to be released

before it can begin working on

its evidence for the hearing.

The report, which will discuss

the submissions on the quarry

and recommend whether the resource

consent should be granted

or not, will be made available by

September 2.

Fulton Hogan will then have

until September 23 to respond

and provide evidence to the

hearings panel.

All submitters intending to

use expert evidence in support

of their submissions will have to

provide it by October 14.

Mrs Eagar is concerned Fulton

Hogan already has the information

from the submissions available

to them to start preparing

for the hearing.

She initially questioned if the

time frames can be extended for

Fulton Hogan, why couldn’t the

15 working days be extended to

allow submitters to respond to

Fulton Hogan’s evidence.

Any party participating in the

hearing can request further time

to prepare responses to the hearings

panel.

But Mrs Eagar said the

association is not familiar with

the Resource Management Act

and it should have been told by

ECan what it can and can’t do.

MAN DONATES $100

Lincoln Isushi owner Linlin

Cheng said a man came into

the store last Thursday and

donated $100 after hearing the

business was scammed with

counterfeit money. The man

did not want to give his name

or number but said he’d heard

about what happened and

wanted to help. Mrs Cheng said

she was moved by the act of

kindness: “What he did shows

the Lincoln community really

does care and support us.” It

comes a week after a man and

woman separately used fake

$100 notes at the store.

LIBRARY IT UPGRADES

Selwyn libraries are receiving

upgrades to their IT services

this week. Due to the work

being carried out, public

computers and printing

won’t be available at Lincoln

Library today, Leeston on

Thursday and Darfield on

Friday. A district council

spokesman said Wi-fi can still

be accessed from personal

devices and they apologise

for the inconvenience. Public

computers and printing will be

available from Saturday.

Reserve upgrade will give Southbridge

• By Devon Bolger

A DEVELOPMENT aimed at

encouraging people to stop and

stay in Southbridge is under way.

A reserve on High St opposite

the town hall is being turned

into a central focus point for the

town.

The reserve will include

historic information, a war

memorial and a playground

along with picnic and rest areas.

Southbridge advisory committee

member Ian Weaver said the

development is well overdue.

“When complete, McMillan

reserve will enhance the town

centre along High St by making

it a focal point for both visitors

and locals alike.”

“It will also complement the

Southbridge town hall that sits

directly opposite the reserve,”

Mr Weaver said.

Local business owners are celebrating

the new development.

Owner of the Southbridge Cafe

and Dairy Mike Miller said it’s

good to see something happening.

“I think it will help to generate

more business. The project looks

good on paper, I am hoping it

gets more people to come and

stop in Southbridge.”

CELEBRATING: Southbridge Cafe and Dairy’s Mike and Fiona

owner Bryan Chapman said it’s

the first step in getting things

moving for the town.

“Things have been pretty quiet

at the moment, it [the development]

should get more people

to stop and have a look around,”

Mr Chapman said.

Southbridge Challenge employee

Suzie Harkerss said it has

been a long time in the making

and she’s thrilled it’s finally getting

done.

“It’s going to be good for us,

the swimming pool, the dairy. I

can’t wait for it to be completed,”

Mrs Harkerss said.

Southbridge Takeaways manager

Wei Leng said it was great

news for the town.

“I think it will be good for

business and I’m happy that we

may get more customers now

that people are more likely to

stop,” Mr Leng said.

The development will be in

two parts, with the first part

being the construction of the

playground, which is under way.

Call for vigilance

crossing rivers

•From page 1

The man’s ute was taken by the

river.

“I imagine it’s well under water

now,” Mr Chatterton said.

It was believed the man was

crossing the river to go duck shooting.

The rescue mission took around

30min.

A rescue helicopter was unable to

come in and help with the rescue

due to fog, in spite of this Mr Chatterton

said it was a good result and

they were able to get the man out

of the river with no injuries. His

clothing had also kept him warm.

“It was very challenging conditions,

he was lucky we got there

when we did.”

He said it wasn’t an ideal situation

and people need to be vigilant

when crossing rivers at this time

of year.

“It’s important to assess the situation

first and check out the conditions

of the river before you go.”

It comes after a number of river

incidents in the Canterbury region.

Kayde Anderson, 9, from Dunsandel

died when the ute he was in

with three men rolled several times

in the Clyde River, near Erewhon

Station, two weeks ago.

Four people had to be winched to

safety by a rescue helicopter after

their two vehicles became stuck in

the Waimakariri River on the same

day.

test at the very popular World of Bricks

Mrs MacLachlan said after

three years as chairwoman, she

still plans on being a member of

How to choose a quality early

learning centre for your child

Choosing an early learning centre

for your child is a big decision but

fortunately, research shows that children

benefit from quality, loving, stimulating

and supportive early childhood centres.

The benefits of early learning centres

We know that quality childhood

education can have a great effect on

children’s social skills, communication

and language, giving them a head start

when beginning school. Research shows

these skills can also set them up for

academic success later in their adult

lives.

All qualified teachers have three-year

early childhood degrees and diplomas.

They provide a wide range of experiences

that extend children’s abilities, giving

them opportunities for physical, mental

and emotional growth.

ADVERTORIAL

Choosing an early learning centre

We recommend you shop around. Jump

online – what’s in your community?

There are many different types of

early learning centres. Find out their

differences and locations - do you need a

centre close to home – or work?

There are many types of financial

support. WINZ can help subsidise

(conditions apply) and most centres offer

20 hours free from three years.

Get personal recommendations from

other parents and if you’re interested in

a centre, request a copy of their last ERO

(Education Review Office) report.

Visit your short-listed centres with

your child through an appointment

or simply drop in. The benefit to an

appointment is that centre staff will be

expecting you, will show you around and

answer any questions you may have.

Take time to absorb the feeling of the

centre. Are staff interacting respectfully

and engaged with children in the centre?

Are there good play resources available?

Are children fully engaged? Talk to

the staff about what you want for your

child, any concerns you have, and listen

carefully to their responses.

Grieving father runs for

CDHB to ‘change it from the inside’

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

FOR NEARLY two years, Geoff

Booth has been battling to get

answers from health authorities

after losing his 21-year-old son

Liam to a suspected suicide.

“It is like I am banging my

head against a brick wall and

no one is listening or being

accountable for their actions or

inactions,” he said.

The ongoing saga has

prompted the Greendale resident

to put his name forward to run

for the Canterbury District

Health Board in the October

local body elections.

“If I can’t change it (the health

system) from the outside, maybe

I can change it from the inside,”

Mr Booth said.

If he is elected onto the board,

Mr Booth hopes to focus on

mental health and raising

awareness about suicide.

Last month police statistics

revealed 4369 attempted suicide

events in Canterbury were

reported in 2018, up 59 per cent

from 2015.

Mr Booth said if he can stop

one young person from doing

what Liam did, he will have done

a good job.

said.

Mr Booth wants to ensure

grieving families get the support

they need following a suicide.

In 2017, he laid a complaint

with the CDHB after Liam was

found dead in Beckenham Park,

near his flat, on October 2.

The case is still before the

coroner.

Eighteen days before his death,

Liam had threatened to harm

himself at Halswell Quarry Park.

He was taken to Christchurch

Hospital by police for assessment

and then he was discharged.

Mr Booth told the CDHB

hospital staff wrongly discharged

Liam and took his word he

wasn’t going to harm himself.

Last year Selwyn Times

reported the CDHB undertook a

serious event review to identify

opportunities to improve its

systems and processes.

The review said there was clear

documentation as to why admission

to hospital under the Mental

Health Act was not thought to

be appropriate. It said Liam was

opposed to his admission and

the clinical opinion was not

to forcibly admit him. But Mr

Booth said the CDHB has not

been “accountable”.

“There was an opportunity

new park and

rides in Rolleston

TWO NEW park and ride

facilities have opened in

Rolleston.

Foster Park is home to one

of them, and will offer people

the ability to catch the No 85

express bus service into the city.

The other is at a newly

constructed car park off

Norman Kirk Drive adjacent to

the district council office. From

here, users can connect to the

No 85, Yellow Line and No 820

bus services.

There is 79 parking spaces

and six cycle racks. Parking

is free for people using a bus

services.

Said Environment

Canterbury manager of public

transport Edward Wright:

“We’re really pleased to see such

a great park and ride facility

now available for Rolleston

residents, along with the option

to also park at Foster Park.

Having park and ride options

helps to make public transport

a more accessible travel choice

for more of the community.”

The entrance to the park

and ride at Foster Park is on

Broadlands Drive.

ADVERTORIAL

New-look food court to

enhance customer experience

Always aiming to provide an enjoyable and diverse shopping

experience for its customers, the popular Westfield shopping

centre in Riccarton is enhancing that experience with a facelift for

its food court.

Comprising 10 outlets with a variety of food choices, the whole

food court area is now lighter, brighter and more open, while the

addition of lush greenery, and the new improved seating layout

have been designed to create a more relaxed fast/casual eating

environment.

“We are delighted to showcase our new-look food court to our

community,” centre manager Kirstie McNulty says.

She invites customers to join in the celebrations marking the

launch of the upgraded food court, which kick off on Thursday

evening, July 25. More FM will be on site, along with the Winning

Wheel giving customers the chance to win exciting prizes.

The entertainment will also include face painting, music and

action entertainment, waiters with food sampling and balloon

twisting. The celebrations will continue throughout the evening

on Friday, July 26, August 1 and 2, and August 8 and 9, with face

painting, balloon twisting, entertainment and giveaways.

The food court is not the only place to enjoy a bite at Westfield,

however – there are more than 30 eating places located around

the centre, all under one roof. These combined with the major

retailers, fashion brands and numerous other specialty stores give

customers the opportunity to enjoy true one-stop shopping at

Westfield, with something there for the whole family. Extensive,

easily accessible free parking adds to the convenience.

The food court renovations are a follow-on from the previous

upgrading work that was carried out some 18 months ago at the

centre and included painting of the whole interior and the addition

of comfort zones and plantings, Ms McNulty says.

If you have an opinion about something that is happening

in Selwyn, email devon.bolger@starmedia.kiwi

Readers respond to last

week’s article about

district councillors and

Malvern Community Board

members who will be able

to have their childcare

costs subsidised by

ratepayers

Kerry Adams – Do district

councillors think ratepayers are a

bottomless pit of money?

It would certainly seem so

with the latest move to now pay

childcare costs. Interesting that

they didn’t put this out for public

consultation like they do with

other significant public spending.

Trying to keep it secret were

they?

In the real world there are hundreds

of families in the district

who everyday face the prospect

of paying their own childcare

costs while working in a full time

job. The councillors should be

facing the same reality.

No, instead they decide they

want to treated differently

because if we don’t pay it then

young people won’t be councillors.

I don’t believe that for a

minute, where is the evidence to

say this is the case.

This is a just another opportunity

for a councillor to milk the

ratepayer for more money and

line their own pockets.

Every job takes sacrifice, ask

those parents with a full time job

who have children.

Don’t give us pathetic excuses

because when they stood for

the role of councillor they knew

exactly what the hours would

be, what the pay was and the

impact it would have on their

family.

Sorry, but it is time

for the councillors to

step into the real world

where if there is not

enough money you

budget and find ways

to make it work.

You can’t just go to

your employer, the

ratepayer, and say you have to

pay my costs and you better pay

another six per cent rates because

we can’t run the council business

prudently.

Grant Prescott – I am

absolutely disgusted at it. Here

we have a mayor who applied

for a job knowing full well no

company vehicle was supplied

and then once in power (has) a

company car paid for

by ratepayers, in spite

of his $127,000 salary.

Most people have

to buy their own vehicles.

Now he pushes

through another

ratepayer-funded

scheme of childcare

for councillors.

Not one of us in other employment

can claim our child care

back as such the mayor and his

councillors should not especially

when ratepayers are paying for it.

They took the role on knowing

the conditions and if they

do not like it they should leave.

I sincerely hope in the October

elections we do vote on our feet

and remove the current mayor

and some of his councillors.

Carole Hadler – I shouldn’t

have thought they would do the

job if they didn’t choose to do so.

It is supposed to be a vocation

and, once upon a time, it was.

Now they can’t even budget

for themselves and clearly not

for or with ratepayers’ money.

There is a rising tide throughout

the country against the sort of

behaviour we are seeing among

councillors who think they are

entitled.

John Shaw – It is

unbelievable that Mr Broughton

and his colleagues have voted

in favour of lining their pockets

with hard earned ratepayers’

money.

I’m sorry, but what makes

them any different from any

of us that has had to do the

hard yards to make childcare

payments for our families.

What has happened to the

councillors who did the job for

the good of the community.

Let’s hope there is a massive

backlash from the public and

they are forced to back down.

Holistic, Health

& Spiritual Expo

Liven up your life and make a day

Have you thought about

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.

If you are interested in

discussing possibilities for

Matt, please call Nicky on

03 365 0291 or 027 207 8212.

Work to start

on Leeston

to Doyleston

pathway today

• By Devon Bolger

CONSTRUCTION is due to

start today on a pathway from

Leeston to Doyleston.

The work will begin at

Leeston. Then at the Doyleston

end, a large box culvert will

span across the main drain on

Leeston Rd.

The central section of the

pathway is being planned and

construction is expected to

begin next year.

District council asset delivery

manager Andrew Mazey said

the project is important to the

communities.

“It will allow children to have a

safe walking and cycling facility

to and from local schools. It also

provides a more sustainable and

healthy transport link between

the townships that doesn’t rely

on the use of private motor

vehicles.”

Mr Mazey said the district

council wants to capitalise on

New Zealand Transport Agency

funding. “We also wanted to

provide some key walking and

cycling improvements in these

townships as soon as possible.”

• By Devon Bolger

Forced into eyes on

I GUESS parenting isn’t

something that actually gets

easier.

There has been a recent

change in the nature of my

parenting experience.

My little girl hit the

18-month mark last week

and it’s like she’s so much

older all of a sudden.

There’s more word-like

sounds, she copies what

you do and say more (got to

watch that road rage swearing)

and obviously

recognises words

for certain things.

I’ve got a painting

in the hall of

a medieval village

scene and Vittoria

can point out the

dog if asked.

That’s pretty cool.

It involves form

recognition, word

recognition and

the recognition of

what’s being asked

of her.

But pointing out

dogs doesn’t fundamentally

change my day-to-day.

What does is the fact that

Vittoria has finally cracked

the ability to climb onto the

couch. Therefore anything

else of a similar height.

That’s fine if I’m nearby

but it severely limits my

opportunities to leave her

out of sight for any length

of time.

So there goes a relaxing

morning

shower while

Vittoria innocently

enjoys

Pingu. Who

knows what

mischief she

could be getting

up to?

I suppose

you’d probably

think it

would stop

me from

being able

to duck off

to the loo as well, but then

you wouldn’t have a toddler

then would you? They can’t

stay away from an occupied

loo.

As much as I’m lamenting

simpler times at home,

VITTORIA

& Matt

I’m also paradoxically super

proud of her.

There’s been a couple of

“how did you get there”

moments over the last

week, but one sticks out in

particular.

Vittoria’s highchair sits in

the kitchen, mostly unused.

Climbing it seems like a

dangerous activity and it

scares the willies out of me

when she tries.

She was in the kitchen

with me the other day, helping

me prepare some food

for her. I turned away from

her for mere seconds while

I washed up and in that

time she had climbed up

the chair and was happily

sitting in it.

Terrifying.

Darfield look to end Coleman Shield drought

• By Gordon Findlater and

Jacob Page

DARFIELD WILL have a chance

to end a 113-year wait for the

Coleman Shield after a converted

try with the final play of the

game saw them break Springston

hearts 22-21 on Saturday.

Scott McIlroy scored his third

try of the game after a line-out

and with Sean Carston landing

the conversion from a handy

range in tough underfoot conditions,

Darfield booked their

spot against Southbridge in the

decider in spite of trailing 21-3 at

one stage.

They will meet Southbridge

in this weekend’s final after

cruising past Lincoln 33-14 with

200-game midfielder Peni Manumanuniliwa

scoring twice.

Darfield president McIlroy

scored all three of his side’s

comeback. He had hoped to sign

off in style when Darfield played

Southbridge in the 2017 final.

However, Darfield were denied

their first Ellesmere title and

McIlroy concentrated on his new

role as president while playing

for the club’s division three side.

This year he’s been back to his

best and is averaging nearly a try

a game for the premier side. A

key part to his return has been

strengthening the knee which

saw him first hang up the boots.

“I spent lots of time on the bike

in the off-season and have done a

lot of work strengthening it which

SLUSH: Both Darfield and Springston battled with the

conditions at Springston Domain on Saturday. ​

means I’ve been able to play 80

minutes of rugby for the first time

in a while,” said McIlroy.

The deciding moment of the

game came when Darfield won

a line-out and worked their way

towards the Springston line

with time expired. McIlroy was

handed the ball off a breakdown

and powered over the line under

the posts by his teammates, including

his twin brother Blair.

The winning conversion was

made by Sean Carston who has

spent most of the year playing in

the colts grade.

Darfield co-coach Kris Rodgers

said it was a great show of

tenacity from his team.

“It was jubilation, it wasn’t

relief. We were dominant in that

second half, we had a try disallowed

and one knocked-on over

the line so it was a good feeling,”

said Rodgers.

“We were playing all the footy,

just the points weren’t coming.

That was a clutch final line-out

for us.”

He said his team would be

keen to reverse the 27-12 defeat

they suffered at home when the

two teams met last month.

“That was a bit of a towel-up

but we have the chance to return

the favour,” he said.

It will be Darfield’s third

straight final, having lost

to Southbridge in 2017 and

Waihora last year.

Greenpark A cement their

spot as title favourites

• By Jacob Page

DEFENDING champions

Greenpark A have reinforced

their position as Selwyn

premier netball title favourites

by beating Broadfield A 60-52

at the Lincoln Event Centre on

Saturday.

Greenpark A showed

composure when it mattered

most in the rematch of last year’s

grand-final, turning a one goal

disadvantage at the end of the

third quarter into an eight goal

win.

In Saturday’s other matches,

Lincoln A continued their

resurgence, beating West Melton

74-37 to become genuine semifinal

contenders. Greenpark

B also proved too strong for

Southbridge A, winning 48-41.

“I was really impressed how

every time we went down, we

came back . . . we had three

girls sick but kept fighting,” said

Greenpark A player/coach Zaylie

Sullivan.

“Our combinations grew the

best they had all season. It was

the best they went all season.

After we got in front by three or

four goals, it felt like we got a lot

of confidence from that.”

Lincoln A coach Dawn Dalley

was satisfied with her team’s win

over West Melton.

“The scoreline looked better

than the actual game. We had

a slow start but a very strong

second half, but we were a bit

rusty to start off with,” said

Dalley.

“We only have eight players in

the team, so we are lacking in

options in some respect.”

Dalley said she remains

hopeful her team will eventually

produce a four quarter

performance.

“We have the combinations,

it’s just a case of working on

fitness.”

The result means West Melton

will most likely be relegated for

the third and deciding round,

which begins in a fortnight.

Greenpark B player/coach

Mechelle Barltrop said the team

were delighted to reverse their

round one loss to Southbridge

A.

“I think that gives us a lot of

confidence heading into the next

round for sure just knowing

that we’ve beaten them,” said

Barltrop.

She said a rusty start after two

weeks off also didn’t help the

team initially.

In the final matches

this weekend before the

championship round, Greenpark

A will face Greenpark B,

baseball

pitcher

shines

for national

side in Japan

• By Jacob Page

SELWYN BRAVES baseball

pitcher Jacob Davidson has

shown what he can do on

the international stage while

representing New Zealand.

The 16-year-old was part of

the Wellington/New Zealand

under-16 team which attended

the International Pony League

Qualifiers in Miyazaki, Japan,

recently.

The former New Zealand

under-15 representative, who

is currently in the Junior Black

Sox squad, was one of four non-

Wellington players selected for

the trip to Japan.

The team’s campaign was cut

down to four games due to a

typhoon.

They played two games

against Hong Kong, one against

Japan, and one against India.

Jacob pitched five scoreless

innings in the first game of the

tournament against Hong Kong

to lead his team to victory.

“Conditions were hot, but

the ball came out smooth and

threw lots of strikes,” he said.

He struck out three and gave

up just two hits.

He was playing with a pitch

count of 66.

The team also beat India and

Hong Kong again but lost to

Japan.

“The players were more slick

with their teamwork and they

were better hitters,” Jacob said.

“I tried to get ahead with

a first pitch and then use my

good infield and outfield that

can back me up and get the

outs for me.

“I’m trying to work on

locating my pitches and being

less erratic.

Jacob also got to bat in the

second game against Hong

Kong and hit an inside-thepark

home run.

DHS ShowQuest Success

ShowQuest is a performing arts platform giving

schools the opportunity to address real life topics/

issues through dance, music and props displaying

an overall message, storyline and/or theme, in 12

minutes.

Page 1

Darfield High School

OPEN EVENING

This year, Darfield chose the theme of Sexual Assault

and lack of consent, with the story of how the victim

can often feel isolated and as if they have little or

no support if society is constantly questioning that

specific individual, making it seem as if it were their

own fault.

The main message of our performance was that “It

Only Takes One”, showing the audience that you can

be that one person who helps to make a change in

someone’s life, no matter what the situation is.

This year, Darfield took home 2nd Place along with

awards for Theme and Soundtrack; our lead dancer,

Alex McGregor, also won the Outstanding Rangitahi

Performance award for the best performer of the

whole night! Congratulations to all involved.

Mid-Winter Party

On Friday 28 June, we held our annual International Mid Winter Party. It was

great to get together and celebrate surviving Term 2 and spend time together,

especially with some of the students who are finishing Darfield High School at

the end of the term.

As well as our International students, we also had the French exchange

students, and about 25 Kiwi friends and host brothers and sisters. Everyone

enjoyed the pizza and ice cream, before it was time to turn down the lights

and dance the night away.

Year 12 Market Day

SELWYN TIMES

Page 2

The Year 12 Commerce class put all of their planning, organising and creating

together for Market Day, during Term 2.

In groups, they decide what product they want to create, while integrating a

community focus. Then, for the following four to six weeks, they craft their business

plan based around their product by selecting personally suited management roles

and evenly contributing to the business plan based on their strengths. Weekly

meetings are held to ensure they are on track to meet their time goals.

About one week before Market Day, after finishing the business plan, it is time

to create their product. Market Day products included Beeswax Wraps, Bottle

Poppers, Succulents in Jars and Decorated Mugs.

Cultural Diversity Day

This year we celebrated Cultural Diversity Day with international and domestic

students representing Thailand, Austria, Japan, France, Germany, Spain, The

Netherlands and China.

Each table had an interactive activity for visitors to have a go at, including

general knowledge quizzes, language-based challenges, and practical activities.

It was great to see the visiting domestic students eagerly engaging in the

activities, and lots of smiles all round.

Careers Expo

The annual Careers Expo had 23 representatives participating, this year, from

local Universities Lincoln and Canterbury, to institutes like the Aviation Institute, the

Defence Force, Camp America and the Sport Institute.

This is a great opportunity for students to find out more about what is required

academically and gives them an opportunity to speak to the representatives from a

variety of organisations.

NZ Defence Force Tasks

A group of Year 10 students spent a session with the New Zealand Defence Force.

They were placed into groups and a leader for each group was identified. They then

had to complete a task that was set by the NZDF.

The exercises are based around gaining confidence in one's ability to lead a group.

The exercises are mental problems, and NZDF coach the leader through how to deal

with the changing group dynamics as the exercise unfolds. Then, once the round is

over, the individual groups are given a chance to give constructive feedback to the

leader: something they thought went well, and something to improve upon.

Cross Country Success

Outdoor Education

The Year 12 Outdoor Education Tramp

to Tarn Col prove to be a massive and

demanding journey for the students,

that tested them all at stages along

the way. Tramping a huge 10-hour day

tested them all but also brought them

together as teamwork, support and

encouragement were essential to make

it possible to conquer the massive

challenge that awaited them.

It will be a shared adventure that won’t

be forgotten as, with such challenge,

comes massive growth.

Following their success at the Canterbury Secondary Championships, Nathan

Carter and Isla McPherson travelled to Timaru to compete in this year’s New

Zealand Secondary Schools Cross Country Championships

Isla competed against over 89 Year 9 girls, finishing in 26th place. Nathan

competed in the two kilometre AWD race and won! This was a fabulous result

following his success at a previous NZ cross country event and last year’s road

race at the New Zealand Athletic Championships.

Emerging Leaders

This year’s Emerging Leaders Conference was held at Christ's College. It is an

opportunity for Year 12 students to broaden their knowledge of what a good leader

is and how to act like one. An inspiring and thought provoking day for the future

leaders of Darfield High School.

Yubetsu Scholarship

Our three Yubetsu scholarship students have recently returned home, with their

Japanese buddies. They travelled to Tokyo, Japan on 26 May. Hayden de Burger,

Niamh Guy and Max Whyte have been based in Yubetsu, with their host families.

They have been attending school, making new friends and adjusting to the new

culture. Welcome home.

thank you all for your devotion to making this show happen.

You should all be incredibly proud of your achievement.

The crew have done an outstanding job in rehearsing and

bringing these characters to life. I couldn’t have asked for

a better cast, with outstanding voices and wonderful stage

presence. Every aspect, from props to costumes and makeup,

to sound and lighting, has been done with such care and

professionalism. Thank you for putting so much of yourselves

Year 10 students had to design a product for a client.

There were a great variety of ideas within the class,

from phone stands to decorative pieces. Students

tested and trialled ideas to work out how they could

assemble pieces for strength and aesthetic qualities.

Vaughan Smart used metal and wood to create this

permanent flower display. It was interesting hearing

the discussions about designs and watching ideas

take shape.

Year 10 Designs

Year 10 students were able to choose their own

context for their spatial design. This tourist cabin,

designed by Annabelle Serra, is a fabulous

example of modelling in design using CAD and

solid structures, and a wonderful combination of

choosing the right tool for the right job.

SELWYN TIMES

Still Spinning

at 92

New park and ride facilities for

Selwyn residents

Two new park and ride facilities have opened in Rolleston, providing

increased access to public transport for the community.

The parks are at Foster Park where people can connect to the

85 service, while the newly-constructed car park adjacent to the

Council offices is for connections to the 85, Yellow Line and 820

services. Parking is free for those connecting to a bus service.

The Council park and ride facility, which was completed last month,

has 79 parking spaces for park and ride users, along with six cycle

racks, while the facility at Foster Park has space for over 50 cars.

Selwyn Mayor Sam Broughton says it’s been good to see so many

people using the park and rides from day one.

“This Council project captures our communities’ vision to

ease congestion and provide more environmentally friendly

transport options.”

Entrance to the Foster Park park and ride is from Broadlands Drive,

and the Council park and ride is accessed from Norman Kirk Drive.

Bus stops to board the bus are found on street next to these facilities.

To celebrate turning 92, Len Cotton decided to go for a spin.

Mr Cotton is one of the most enthusiastic members of the Rolleston Community Centre spin

classes—which he attends three times a week.

With Wednesday’s class falling on Mr Cotton’s birthday the class members decided to mark the day.

Mr Cotton also attends Mature and Motivated, a Council-run low impact, fun exercise class for

people over 50 and still sometimes attends, though spin has become his main focus, Group

fitness instructor Kim Roberts says.

A keen cyclist, he was encouraged to join the classes about six months ago after a conversation

with one of their members at a café, Ms Roberts says.

“For 92 he’s pretty fit. He shows up some of the younger ones sometimes too. If he’s not cycling

indoors he can be seen sometimes cycling outdoors.”

There are more benefits to the classes than just staying fit, he says. “I’ve met lots of new people and

they’re very social and we all go for a coffee afterwards. It’s where you go to make new friends.”

He’s also a fan of the music played during the class and sometimes can be seen at warm down

with the instructor’s microphone singing along.

The class often celebrate birthdays, but Ms Roberts says they were keen to do something a bit

different for their inspiring oldest member.

“We’re all mother hens to him. He’s amazing. He’s an inspiration for all of us that age is no

restriction. We just wanted to make it extra special for him.”

Council spin classes are available at Rolleston Community Centre and Lincoln Event Centre with a

range of morning, mid-morning and evening times. For more details visit selwyn.govt.nz/events or

pick up a term three activity programme from your local Council facility.

Mayor supports joint initiative to improve water

Mayor Sam Broughton and other Canterbury mayors have reconfirmed their support for working

together to look after the region’s water resources.

In a refresh of the Canterbury Water Management Strategy (CWMS), members of the Canterbury

Mayoral Forum adopted new goals to improve and manage water in Canterbury and charged

Environment Canterbury to work with Councils and partners to find solutions for those goals.

The CWMS was first adopted in 2009. The refreshed strategy adds 131 goals for 2025 and 2030, along

with an extensive plan of proposed actions, prioritising the results the community has asked for and

taking into account emerging issues such as climate change.

Under the CWMS, 10 local zone committees with council, community and rūnunga members provide

recommendations to Environment Canterbury that can result in local plan changes.

The Selwyn Waihora zone committee has been a driving force behind several key projects, Mayor

Broughton says.

“The whole province working together is helping us to make a significant difference in improving water

systems and protecting them for the future.

“Our zone committee is working closely with Environment Canterbury on the ‘Swimmable Selwyn at Coes

Ford project’, and the Whakaroa Te Ahuriri project to create a wetland that will reduce the nutrients and

sediment going in Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere and improve biodiversity and mahinga kai values.”

The committee has completed the Haldon Pastures mudfish protection policy, clearing willow and

weeds, providing new plantings and a solar powered barrier and water delivery system to protect the

habitat from drought and predators.

The $2.5 million Selwyn Near River Recharge project is under way and aims to keep the lower Hororata,

Selwyn/Waikirikiri and Irwell rivers from running dry; support mahinga kai and biodiversity and improve

downstream water quality.

Nomination for local elections

now open

Nominations for the 2019 local elections are open and anyone

thinking of standing is encouraged to get their nomination in early.

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

and five members of the Malvern Community Board, along with

representatives for the Mid Canterbury Constituency of the

Canterbury Regional Council (Environment Canterbury) and for

board members of the Canterbury District Health Board.

Nominations are open until 12 noon on Friday 16 August. Council

deputy electoral officer Stephen Hill says potential candidates

should complete their nominations as early as possible.

“Getting nomination forms in early means we have plenty of time

to check that everything is in order and all the documentation is

completed in time,” he says.

Any New Zealand citizen over the age of 18 and on the electoral roll

can stand for election. Nomination forms must be signed by two

people who are enrolled as electors in the ward or subdivision the

person is nominated for.

Nomination forms, and a downloadable copy of the candidate

handbook, are available at selwyn.govt.nz/elections or from Council

offices and service centres.

milk. Cover and bring to the boil.

Reduce the heat to medium and

has reduced slightly.

While the soup is cooking,

heat the remaining oil in a small

fry pan over high heat. Add the

almonds and dukkah and cook,

stirring until golden and crisp.

Divide the soup among four

bowls and top with the almond

mixture.

Serve with a slice of crusty

New technology

increases burn time

Blaze King fires are exclusive to

HeatStore in Christchurch and are a real

success story with a thermostat which

enables the fire to produce controlled,

even heat all day and night long.

“These fires provide a burn of 12 or

more hours without reloading by using

a clean air technology that burns both

the wood and the smoke by raising the

temperature of the smoke to burning

point,” says Heatstore Commercial

Manager David Chalklen. The catalytic

technology has not been available in New

Zealand before.

The Blaze King models burn

approximately 30 per cent less wood

than a conventional fire, will burn 24/7 if

necessary and are classified as ultra-low

emission burning.

HeatStore is now introducing new

models specially designed for smaller

homes and word of mouth means they

are selling quickly.

Apart from Blaze King, HeatStore

stocks the “best of the best” log and pellet

fire options available in New Zealand

from Masport, Nectre, Pyroclassic and

Bionic log fires along with Ravelli and

Enviro wood pellet fires that are quiet and

WiFi compatible

HeatStore in Blenheim Road is well

known for its personalised, customer

friendly and professional service

providing customers with a huge range of

options to suit their lifestyle and home.

To ensure fires are positioned correctly

and of the right type for residents’

needs, HeatStore provides detailed

onsite consultations and full installation

services.

“If you’re after a new fire we’ll assist you

with selecting the model best suited to

your home, our own installers will fit it

and ensure that you receive full after sales

support and service,” says David.

HeatStore has an excellent selection of

fires, including demonstration models,

on display at their showroom at 472

Blenheim Road which is open Mondays

to Fridays from 8:30am to 5pm and on

Saturdays from 10am to 1pm. Their

Winter, a good

time to install and

maintain irrigation

Winter is a good time to install new systems

and maintain existing systems so they are

perfectly up and running for spring and the

warmer weather, says Phil Hudson from

locally owned company Freeman Irrigation.

Having an irrigation system helps save

time, money and water, says Phil, as automatic

systems reduce the amount of water being

used by irrigating at the correct time of day,

minimising evaporation.

The latest technology with automated WiFi

means that your sprinklers can be connected

to weather station forecasts so if rain is

expected the amount of water is reduced.

Being able to operate your system remotely

also means you can adjust the flow at any

time to suit the conditions, saving water and

money and a built-in water system not only

adds value to your property but they also

work while you are way on holiday.

“We have a range of smartphone controllers

and rain sensors that can be fitted to most

systems, allowing to have easy control from

anywhere. If you want to save money and

conserve water a good rain sensor is an

affordable solution,” says Phil.

Winter is a great time for maintenance

on your irrigation systems to prevent the

inconvenience and additional costs of having

landscaping repaired if problems are not

discovered until summer and need repairing.

“Some irrigation system problems are

easily fixed but they have to be identified to

be fixed.” The most important part of keeping

an irrigation system is good working order

is having regular maintenance on the sprays,

rotors and solenoid valves.

Common problems include Some of the

basic problems include clogged sprinklers;

leaking sprinklers and valves; obstructed

sprinklers; leaking/blocked solenoid valves;

overspray onto footpaths, streets or buildings;

design problems; missing nozzles or pipe

leaks and breaks.

Freeman Irrigation has a range of irrigation

services, not just for residential homes but

also parks, golf courses, horticultural and

viticultural properties, sub-divisions and

commercial properties.

Top design trends

Established in 1987, Southern

Woods has been growing millions of

quality plants for over a generation.

Talk to our knowledgeable team

about fruit trees for your next

project.

Design trends come and go with each year and

incorporating just one of these looks can simply

refresh your home, whether it is updating your

lighting, wallpaper or colour.

Natural with nature

Natural materials such as granite, stone,

copper, concrete, brass and granite will help add

serenity to your home.

Accents from copper, with its orange and

red hues, along with other metals and finishes

bring a fresh approach to design, taking over

from the rose gold, chrome, and polished nickel

of previous years. Brass is a warm and subtle

alternative for 2019 adding an everyday sense of

elegance to even the simplest spaces.

These elements will help bring an organic and

serene ambiance to any

space while reflecting

the world around your

home.

Concrete is no

longer just for

provide a clean crisp

look, and not only just

for counter tops in the

of next year’s hottest

design trends into one

stylish piece.

Colours count

There are several

colour trends

happening for 2019

including tonal red,

lilac, burnt yellow and

black and white.

Black and white is a

timeless design trend

providing a visual

contrast in furnishings

throughout the home.

In the kitchen, black

and white is fresh and

simple. Black kitchen

cabinets show less wear

and tear than white and black is also an edgy

addition in range hoods and island accents.

Splash backs are also making a comeback

at full-height. Stretch from the counter to the

ceiling - behind floating shelves and range hoods

- for a clean and cohesive look. This dramatic

statement can create the illusion of additional

surface area.

Purple or grey-lilac shades are replacing the

popular Millennial pink. And with this mauve

takeover, a move toward orange-based pinks

(such as peach, apricot and coral) will begin to

pick up.

Warm tones are also on-trend such as red to

provide warmth, comfort and energy to any

interior. Although muted colours can help avoid

making spaces feel overwhelming and visually

heavy, bolder colours are preferred. Richer

Similar to floral patterns and brass

decor, incorporating geometric patterns

is nothing new but are now present with

bold colours and oversized patterns

making a bold statement.

Geometric throws on the bed can be an

easy way to incorporate this trend.

Texture with velvet

Velvet used to be old-fashioned but

provides a sense of luxury and comfort

particularly in some beautifully designed

sofas in warm jewel tones.

Variety of patterns

Florals, geometric designs and

coloured patterns are in for 2019. Florals

have always been popular but have

come into play with more modern and

fresh designs. Decorators expect to find

Matte finishes

Matte finishes can give furnishings

and bright colours a more relaxed but

futuristic appeal. A bright yellow or

periwinkle colour would be loud if it was

high gloss but in matte looks ultra-cool.

Also on the cool list are matte finished

furnishings with

unusual or different

hues and silhouettes

or in a classic styling.

Vintage and artisan looks

Other trends include vintage in

lighting with pendants and sconces

and, the kitchen, bucket or trough sinks

inspired by the farm house.

Artisan fixtures made locally with a

hand-crafted feel will help to personalise

your home, and like natural elements,

they will help create a comforting and

inviting feel.

With past design trends coming back

in style this year, such as velvet and

geometric patterns, there are many

references to 1970s chic decor with warm

palettes, funky textures, and abstract

silhouettes. Incorporating this trend

into your home will bring out amazing

personality into every room.

it’s best to get things in the system now

,” says Julie Hastings who owns Lagoon

Pools with husband Warren.

Lagoon Pools installs pools in sizes

to suit both large and small sections,

ranging from five metres to 12 metres in

length with a variety of widths, colours

and shapes. There really is a pool for

every site.

Lagoon Pools is the Leisure Pools

dealer for most of the South Island

featuring 100% composite fibreglass

and, with patented innovations, every

swimming pool is supported by their

lifetime structural warranty and a lifetime

osmosis warranty – this makes them the

strongest pool available on the market.

Julie and Warren have recently returned

from the Leisure Pools conference so have

some new pools and colour options that

can also be viewed at the Leisure Pools

website at www.leisurepools.co.nz. Pool

automation is also becoming more

popular with equipment monitoring

and settings right at your fingertips from

any location.

Additional features including pool

lighting, fountains and spa jets can

enhance the pool area transforming it into

an extended living space where family

and friends can relax in the outdoors,

Julie says.

It takes around five days to install a

pool and the finishing touches can take

from four to eight weeks depending

upon the design. Not only does Lagoon

Pools install the pool, they can offer the

complete package including paving,

decking, landscaping, fencing etc.

“It is always very satisfying to see

a project through from concept to

installation, turning a vision into reality

for our many customers.”

incentives by phoning Julie or Warren

Gardening

Many ways to grow strawberries

EDIBLE GARDENS have never

been more popular and one of

the easiest of fruits to cultivate is

the strawberry.

Because of their compact habit,

strawberries can be grown in

hanging baskets, containers or

the aptly-named strawberry pots,

as well as the usual raised-up

garden beds.

They can begin cropping in a

matter of weeks and will go on

producing for much of the year,

especially in warmer areas.

•Strawberries in the

garden – Choose a sunny position

that hasn’t grown strawberries

for a number of years and

dig in some organic compost.

Plant strawberry runners

or seedlings into raised-up

mounds, and apply a layer of

mulch. It important it is to

mulch the plants, both

to retain moisture and to keep

the fruit cleanly above the soil.

Pea straw or lucerne hay make a

good a mulch.

Remove runners, unless you

want to use them to propagate

some new plants (which should

be done every three years or so).

•Strawberries in pots –

Start by choosing a suitable

PRACTICAL: Growing strawberries in pots is decorative and functional. Watch out for snails.

container. Fill with a top quality

potting mix and plant the strawberries.

Water in well. Feed

occasionally with plant food and

watch out for snails and slugs.

•Strawberries in hanging

baskets – This is a fun way

to grow strawberries, but the

main challenge with growing

any plant in a hanging basket is

that it’s much more vulnerable to

drying out.

Line moss baskets with plastic

sheet and poke holes for drainage.

Fill with a hanging basket

mix which contains added

soil wetters and water-storing

crystals.

Ripe berries look particularly

decorative dangling from a

basket.

Save money

on food

GROWING YOUR own can

save a considerable amount

on food costs and will also

give you a wider choice of vegetables.

Unusual vegetables are often

difficult to buy in shops, but are

easily grown in the home garden.

When to grow veges

Vegetables can be loosely

grouped according to their growing

season.

Cool season vegetables: Grow

best when temperatures are

between 10-20 deg C or even

lower. They include broad beans,

broccoli, brussels sprouts, cauliflower,

onions, peas, spinach and

turnips.

Intermediate season vegetables:

These are best between temperatures

of 15-25 deg C. They

include beetroot, carrot, parsnip,

celery, leek, lettuce, radish and

silver beet.

Warm season vegetables: Are

grown best when temperatures

are above 20 deg C. They include

beans, capsicum, eggplant,

potato, sweet corn, sweet potato,

tomato and cucurbits (including

cucumbers, zucchini and pumpkins).

Snuggle down

When it comes to home heating, ‘bang

for your buck’ is essential and part of

this is ensuring your home is adequately

insulated. Did you know that a 2% gap in

insulation can result in a 20% heat loss?

This can make a huge difference to the

comfort of your home.

Insulation works by slowing heat loss

from your home, enclosing it in a thermal

envelope. This is why around 40% of heat

is lost through the ceiling in the average

uninsulated home.

In addition to insulation, simple

measures, such as using thermal curtains

and sealing gaps and cracks, will

eliminate draughts and prevent warm air

escaping where it shouldn’t. It also pays

to remember that heating a room to a

moderate constant temperature is much

more efficient than a fluctuating heat.

Designed to not only be practical and

functional but to enhance the décor

of your home, there is a home-heating

option for every home, and everyone.

GAS FIRES

Providing fast, convenient and easily

regulated heat, gas can bring a moderatesize

room to a warm, comfortable

temperature in about 10-15 minutes.

Glass-fronted gas fireplaces are

significantly more efficient than openfronted

ones, and as gas fires are cleaner

than wood-burning fires they are favoured

in clean-air areas, making this a popular

heating option in Christchurch.

Like other heating options, most

modern gas fires have a timer facility.

HEAT PUMPS

Heat pumps come in a variety of options:

high-wall, floor consoles, slimline, quiet ...

the list goes on, ensuring there is a design,

size and placement to suit your needs.

Be smart about your energy use and

ensure you have the right size heat pump

for your space. If you pick one that is

too small, it will have to work hard all

the time, and will use more power than

necessary. A unit that is the right size

should heat your space in 5-15 minutes.

DUCTED AIR CONDITIONING

Ducted air conditioning systems work

exactly the same way as a high-wall heat

pump, in that there is an indoor unit

and an outdoor unit, and by passing a

refrigerant between them they transfer

heat (or cooling) into a room.

Unlike the high-wall system, where the

indoor unit is visible, the ducted indoor

unit is hidden away in the ceiling space

and uses flexible ducts to pass the heat

from room to room through vents in the

ceiling, wall or floor.

CENTRAL HEATING

Growing in popularity in New Zealand,

warm-water central heating is the even

distribution of heat throughout the home

from a central point or heat source. Warm

water is distributed via a network of pipes

connected to radiators in each room, or

looped under the floor for underfloor

heating. Releasing a gentle heat, no water

is actually consumed, ensuring this is the

ultimate in efficiency.

HEAT RECOVERY SYSTEM

Home heating isn’t just about keeping the

house warm; it’s also about maintaining

a healthy home. In the summer months

we are able to throw open the windows to

air the house, an option not available in

cooler weather, meaning condensation is

often an unhealthy side effect of winter.

The installation of an effective heatrecovery

or ventilation system can help

solve this problem, thereby working

towards creating a warmer, drier and,

above all, healthier living environment.

WOOD BURNERS

When used properly, wood burners are a

great and economical option, especially if

you have access to free or cheap firewood.

You do, however, need to ensure your

fire is clean-air approved, especially in

Canterbury. When buying a wood fire,

consider efficiency rating, clean burn,

emission levels and size.

PELLET BURNERS

Pellet fires have come a long way in recent

years and most are now available as

free-standing or inbuilt, offering a wider

variety when it comes to selecting the

right look for your space.

There are many benefits to a pellet

burner as they offer all the warmth and

luxury of a flame without the hassle of

cutting, carrying and storing firewood.

Made from sawmill waste, the pellets are

carbon-neutral and burn cleanly.

One of the biggest limitations is the

initial cost, with the price of buying and

installing a pellet burner greater than

that of a conventional wood burner. The

burner also relies on electricity so won’t

work during a power cut.

Property Market Update

with One Agency

Insurance potential

key factor in real estate

Mike Goatley, Principal,

One Agency Real

Estate Specialists.

Borrowing money is said to be more

affordable than ever. Accessing finance is

possibly harder; unless a first home buyer

who is eligible to draw on their KiwiSaver

and a Government HomeStart grant.

“Interest rates are the lowest ever though

banks are more cautious,” suggests Mike

Goatley, Principal of One Agency Real

Estate Specialists.

Mike has noted that while the real estate

market has slowed, sales are steady with

the first home buyer bracket relatively

buoyant. Properties over $650,000 are

taking longer to sell and the average ‘sell

time’ for the first home buyer bracket is

sitting around 39 days. Homes are sitting

for longer as discerning buyers increase

their decision-making timeframes.

Various economic reports offer insight

into the situation with forces like business

confidence (reported to be the lowest in

a decade) impacting on the real estate

market.

Mike says people are more particular

in their requirements while banks require

more equity due to a concern that low

equity could slide to no equity. Those

outside the first home buyer bracket need

a good deposit and income stream to

satisfy lending requirements.

The Selwyn market is unique with its

own drivers, including: the Southern

motorway extension; more amenities in

Rolleston; expanding industry providing

more local employment; and good land

quality with seismic stability (there are

fewer good land options elsewhere in

Canterbury).

Anticipated changes in the way homes

are insured is another factor with

insurance premiums expected to change,

to reflect the risk of an actual property

rather than spread across all insured

properties. Home owners in high risk

areas (flood zones or TC3 zoned land) will

likely have higher premiums to reflect the

higher level of risk.

“Quality of land, flood risk and exposure

to seismic activity will influence the values

of real estate markets in Canterbury, if not

around the country. However, Selwyn is

dancing to its own tune. I believe these

factors will add to its desirability,” says

Mike.

Even in the quieter market, Mike and

his Rolleston based team have been

experiencing high demand for their

services.

“As the market becomes tighter, more

The One Agency Real Estate Specialists’ team.

people look for tried and true service

delivery,” suggests Mike.

Seasonal factors are also an influence.

Many perceive spring is the best time to

sell yet Mike says he sells just as many

properties through winter as in other

seasons.

“The key is preparing the home –

showing off its strengths and holding

viewings when the sun is streaming into

the home, as well as ensuring it’s warm.

People come in from the cold and if the

house is warm it represents its strengths

well. An empty property needs staging

with furniture, which shifts it from being a

house to a home for sale. It engages a heart

decision with it likely to sell for a better

price in a shorter timeframe,” adds Mike.

Mike advises buyers to carry out due

diligence and secure good advice when

checking a property’s land stability and

flood zones before committing to buy.
