Mason gets a special visit from All Blacks

DREAM: Mason Ratten with two of his heroes – All Blacks Codie Taylor and Jack Goodhue.

• By Devon Bolger

MASON RATTEN was looking

forward to what he loves most

– being back out on the rugby

field during winter.

But the Rolleston eight-yearold’s

world was turned upside

down in February when he was

diagnosed with leukaemia.

On Thursday All Blacks Joe

Moody, Jack Goodhue, Codie

Taylor and Jordie Barrett made

Mason’s day when he met them

at Foster Park. The Crusaders

and the Hurricanes fullback

visited as part of their annual

national tour.

The players went to Rolleston

College to meet students and

then to the park for games, a

New tests

show nitrate

levels

still rising

in district’s

water

• By Devon Bolger

NITRATE concentrations in the

district’s water sources continue

to rise in spite of limits being set

to reduce the problem.

The district council’s chemical

testing results show nitrate levels

have increased in more than half

of the tested water schemes over

the last two years.

Dunsandel, Rolleston, Kirwee,

Lincoln, Darfield, Southbridge,

Sheffield, Glentunnel, West Melton,

Springston and Springfield

water sources all have increased

concentrations, some of which are

more than twice the 2017 levels.

An Environment Canterbury

spokesperson said the

increases have come from the

intensification of farming.

“The 1990s is the latest phase of

intensification, but concentrations

were already increasing earlier

than that, as fertiliser application

and stocking rates increased. By

the 1970s, nitrate concentrations

were well above natural levels.

THEY SAY a picture is worth 1000 words.

On page 1 today we report on Mason

Ratten, one of many youngsters who

turned out to meet All Blacks at Foster

Park on Thursday.

Mason and his family are going through

some very tough times.

The youngster was diagnosed with leukaemia in February and

life since has been very traumatic.

But plucky Mason and his family have kept their chins up

throughout. A keen rugby player before the big C struck, he met

some of his idols at Foster Park, making a great day even better.

And the better news is, the outlook for Mason is promising.

He might even grow up to be an All Black one day. Wouldn’t

that be something.

Dispute over who pays

to repair pot holes in tavern car park

• By Devon Bolger

WHO FIXES potholes in a

tavern car park has turned into a

dispute between the leasees and

landlord.

Carol and

Richard Hansen,

who lease the

West Melton

Tavern from

businessman

Alan Edge, say

he is responsible

Alan Edge for filling them

in.

But Mr Edge says under the

terms of the lease it is Mr and Mrs

Hansen’s problem – and cost.

“The lease says they’re responsible.

They use it, I don’t so I

won’t be fixing it,” he said,

The Hansen’s reject that claim

and say they only lease one-sixth

of the property from Mr Edge,

which covers the building and

one car space, and he is responsible

for the rest of the car park.

“We are now just hoping he will

come to the table and fix the holes

but if not, we may consider taking

legal action,” Mrs Hansen said.

The lease began in 2007 and

ends in 2021.

The issue came to light on the

West Melton Community facebook

page when the Hansens

made a post saying the potholes

were out of their control.

Mrs Hansen said they wanted

to share their side of the story as

they have been criticised for the

car park by customers.

“It’s not our fault and we’re

the ones who have become the

laughing stocks and we are the

ones people are criticising.”

“We have fixed the damage in

the past but this now is way out

of hand. We aren’t looking at a

quick fix and we’re not liable for

the type of maintenance that is

required.”

The Hansens think the potholes

are being made worse by

drivers using the car park as a

thoroughfare to avoid the State

Highway 73 and Weedons Ross

Rd intersection.

More and more motorists have

started doing it after the West

Melton Village Retail Centre

opened in 2016, Mrs Hansen said.

“The problem is huge now.

You really have to pull in here so

slowly because it’s just that bad.”

“Even if we fixed it ourselves,

in a month it’s going to be back

to where it was because of all of

the usage.”

She said they think the New

should step in and stop it from

happening.

“NZTA should be putting

their hand up and saying we will

help you guys because they have

created this problem with that

intersection.”

An NZTA spokesperson said

the car park is private property

so it is over to the owners to

manage it for their purposes.

“We advise all drivers to take

care around busy intersections,

slow down and obey the road rules.

Avoid distractions like cell phones

and get home to their destination

safely without endangering other

road users or pedestrians.”

In Brief

THIEVES, VANDALS HIT CLUBS

The West Melton Rugby Club

had a second gas bottle stolen

from its shed last week. Club

president Ants Calder said it

was disappointing and a burden

to have to keep replacing them.

Another bottle was stolen from

the same shed in May. The

Rolleston Warriors Rugby

League Club has had its storage

container vandalised after its

prize-giving last weekend. The

container was at Brookside Park

and was found covered in graffiti.

Anyone with information is asked

to phone Rolleston Police on 347

9208.

PROJECT CONTRACTORS

The contractors for four major

projects in Rolleston are expected

to be chosen at a district council

meeting next Wednesday. District

council group manager property

Douglas Marshall said they are

hoping to make a decision on

the construction tender for the

proposed Health Hub, Selwyn

Aquatic Centre extension, Te Ara

Ātea and the wider Rolleston

Town Centre upgrade then. It

comes after Apollo Projects was

chosen to build the Foster Park

indoor courts.

“We talk about nitrate being

in the post which is from land

use that’s occurred over a

number of years, and we are only

starting to see it come through in

those concentrations now,” she

said.

ECan chief scientist Tim Davie

said we will continue to see

increases for potentially up to 20

years until they start to taper off.

He said there is a nitrate issue

in the district compared to the

rest of Canterbury.

“Are there high nitrate

concentrations in Selwyn?

Definitely. What we are

concerned about is two things,

biodiversity and public health,”

Dr Davie said.

“There is a health risk

associated with high nitrate

concentration. The main one is

when you get above a certain

amount, you are at risk of blue

baby syndrome, which affects

newborn babies that are bottlefed

and it can cause health

problems for them.”

Dr Davie said there is a lot

of contention around what

concentration of nitrate we

should be concerned about.

there is an increased risk of

colorectal cancer. It hasn’t been

proven so it hasn’t changed our

suggest that high nitrate levels

in drinking water are not a good

thing.”

The current maximum

acceptable level of nitrate in

drinking water is 11.3mg/L

As of February, the water

source on Illinois Drive in

Rolleston has a concentration of

6.98. In Dunsandel it is 6.54 and

in Darfield it is 5.02.

Waterways Centre for

Freshwater Management director

Jenny Webster-Brown said those

numbers are relatively high.

“Any time something is getting

up to half of the recommended

drinking water standard, it’s time

to pay attention, especially if it’s

increasing,” she said.

It is likely things will get a lot

worse before they get better, Ms

Webster-Brown said.

“We won’t know whether the

systems we have put in place are

working for many years to come

because of this lag time.”

Survey under way to gauge bus use

• By Devon Bolger

A COMMUNITY group is

doing its own public transport

survey because it fears usage

numbers for the Leeston bus

trial might be incorrect.

Enviro Ellesmere says an

Environment Canterbury bus

trial could be skewed because

the time the

trial is being

conducted is

at low patronage

times.

The bus

leaves Leeston

each weekday

Jade Arnold

for Christchurch

at 7am,

and returns

from Christchurch at 4.37pm

and averages 27 passengers a day.

Enviro Ellesmere member Jade

Arnold said the group has had

about 60 responses so far to its

online survey asking people why

they use the bus and how often

they would ideally like to.

The survey is more about looking

into the type of bus people

would use and do need rather

than what they are using currently,

Mrs Arnold said.

“The way the ECan trial works

SKEWED: Enviro Ellesmere is conducting a survey on public

transport needs in the area because it is concerned the

Leeston bus trial isn’t getting accurate user numbers.

is that they only count the

number of people who actually

use the service. It concerns me

because that completely misses

the needs of people who can’t

catch that specific bus.

“I’m worried it makes it look

as though the bus isn’t wanted or

needed here as much as it really

is,’’ Mrs Arnold said.

ECan manager of public transport

strategy Edward Wright

said the times were set after a

survey showed that was when

people would use the bus most.

“The funding available for the

trial only allows for one service

each way per day, and the survey

results indicated that the greatest

number of people wanted to

travel at the times the trial bus is

operating.”

The trial began in January this

year and will run until October.

In July the service was also

extended to include Southbridge.

Mr Wright said the extension

increased the cost of the bus, so

without any increase in patronage,

the viability of the service is

declining.

“For the service to become viable,

usage needs to increase and

we are considering ways that this

might be possible.”

Once Enviro Ellesmere survey

has ended the results will be

averaged and graphed so it’s

important to get a high number

of responses, Mrs Arnold said.

“After that, I want to make it

publicly available so anyone can

see the results. I’ll also present

the results to bus operators, the

district council and ECan.”

district libraries or online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/93

SELWYN’S ECONOMY has

grown more than any district in

New Zealand over the last year.

Latest figures show gross

domestic product in the district

grew by 4.5 per cent, compared to

2.5 per cent growth nationally and

1.7 per cent across Canterbury.

Tourist spend increased by 10.5

per cent for the year – $117 million

in the district compared to a

4.5 per cent increase in spending

across the rest of Canterbury.

The amount spent on electronic

card transactions rose 11.7 per

Unemployment also dropped

to 2.1 per cent, down from 2.2 per

cent in the previous quarter and

almost half of the national unemployment

rate of 4.1 per cent.

District council chief executive

David Ward said the figures are

an encouraging sign of the continued

desirability of the district.

“The diversity of our economy

in Selwyn is a strength and

the figures show a continued

confidence that this is a great

Fire brigade gets ute

Fire Brigade has a new

emergency response

vehicle thanks to the help

of a local business.

The new Ford Ranger ute

will provide the brigade

The vehicle was

purchased with a grant

from Pub Charity and with

the support of The Famous

It has been fitted with

more equipment and

configured in a way

to make it easier for

firefighters to access. It

has also been fixed with a

front-mounted winch to

assist with stabilisation

and recovery.

“The ute will be used

in a support role for

operational incidents and

will also assist members

with the delivery of fire

risk reduction activities

and education within the

community and local

schools,” Mr Greenwood

said.

“When our crews were

involved with significant

events such as the

ferry additional people and

equipment in challenging

environments.

we’re incredibly fortunate

to have such wonderful

THE LINCOLN Women’s

Insitute’s annual concert opened

with a bracket of songs by one

of United States’ most popular

musical theatre composers.

The songs Can’t Help Singing, A

Fine Romance, and The Last Time

I Saw Paris by Jerome Kern were

some of the crowd favourites,

institute member Beth Keoghan

said.

A piano solo by Mrs Keoghan,

who is the group’s accompanist,

was then performed.

“Variations of the Scottish

tune Ye Banks and Braes o’ Bonnie

Doon was extremely well

received by the audience. It is a

favourite air arranged for piano

by Miss Lavinia E Hawley,” she

said.

The final bracket of songs

had an Irish theme with songs

such as When Irish Eyes Are

Smiling, Galway Bay and Rose of

Tralee.

“The audience enjoyed joining

in the chorus of Gypsy Rover.

Several solo items throughout

the concert added to its variety.

The whole programme was

greatly appreciated by all,” Mrs

Keoghan said.

a lot at the moment so to get a

chance to talk to them really

boosted his confidence.

“He was smiling for the rest

of the day. As his mother, it was

really amazing to see.”

Mason was a happy and active

kid before he was diagnosed, and

played rugby for Rolleston.

His cancer meant he couldn’t

play this year but he can’t wait

to be out on the field again, Ms

Kuru said.

It was Mason’s after school

care, Selwyn Kids, which first

noticed something was wrong.

“They said they had noticed he

was more tired than usual. He

was really weak and just had no

energy at all. I looked at him and

thought he really isn’t himself,”

said Ms Kuru.

Mason’s teacher at Rolleston

Primary School also mentioned

his tiredness and he soon began

to break out in bruises all over

his body.

Said Ms Kuru: “At that point,

we had already gone to the

Awards Fast

Approaching

LincolnEnvirotown.org.nz

Selwyn businesses are being urged to

enter the Selwyn Responsible Business

Awards which will culminate in a

Presentation Evening on 24th October at

which their achievements and initiatives

will be celebrated.

Entry is by an easily completed survey

taken online. Once this has been

submitted a Coordinator will pay a short

visit to the business to talk about their

practices in regards to Sustainability and

Community engagement. The process has

been streamlined greatly since previous

awards and those businesses which have

already entered this year, are reporting an

enjoyable exercise. The aim is to have

surveys completed before the end of

September.

Achievements are recognised, awards are

made and prizes are given, but previous

participants have highlighted many other

good reasons for being involved in this

project. These include such things as:

• The benefits of discussing practices and

receiving free advice

• Free publicity for their efforts

• Determining “where they are at” as

regards their impact

• Feeling that they are part of Selwyn’s

efforts to maintain healthy communities

and environment

Each business receives a Certificate, A

positive Feedback letter, and a Digital

“Badge” for media publicity.

In an age when the public are becoming

more aware of the need for environment

friendly practices and strong communities,

Lincoln Envrirotown Trust sees this

project as important and beneficial to all.

Many businesses have received a survey

by email but in our growing district,

new businesses are frequently opening

therefore businesses that have not

received anything, but wish to

involve themselves in this exciting

Ski club celebrates 90 years

MT CHEESEMAN ski

club is celebrating its

90th birthday and being

the oldest in the South

Island.

The club held a birthday

party and retro ski day

to mark the occasion last

week.

Club member Bruce

Alexander, 87, said he remembers

starting out at Mt

Cheeseman.

“The first time I came

up to Cheeseman the club

was 16-years-old and I was

13-years-old. I came with

the Britten family. Mrs

Britten was the sister of Allen

Giles.”

Allen Giles, a Hokianga

farmer, on holiday at Castle

Hill in the winter of 1929,

explored the area which is

now the Mt Cheeseman Ski

Area.

This led to the formation

of the Canterbury Winter

SKILLS:

A group

of skiers

in 1984

on the

top ridge

Poma

which

was later

converted

to a t-bar.

CELEBRATING: The oldest and youngest members

of Mt Cheeseman Ski Club Bruce Alexander, 87,

and Theodore Hinman, 5, cut the cake at the 90th

birthday party.

known as Mt Cheeseman

Ski Club.

To mark the occasion a

cake was cut by the oldest

The ski area is open

to the public and offers

both groomed slopes and

off-piste terrain. It is located

on Mt Cockayne, it is

named after Mt Cheeseman

which is slightly further

along the range.

The club is selling a

Andrew Crossland

Life among the birds helps Rolleston

Andrew Crossland has

been recognised by Birds

New Zealand with a Robert

Falla memorial award. The

Rolleston resident and

Christchurch City Council

park ranger talks to

Louis Day about how birds

have shaped his life and

career

What exactly does your role

consist of?

A big part of what I do is

habitat development – I don’t

just look at birdlife. The default

is birdlife because we don’t have

lions, tigers and giraffes around

the landscape. But in New

Zealand by default a person who

is a wildlife manager, which is

what I am, goes into birdlife. My

interest is how to develop habitats

or how to recognise habitats that

are of value to wildlife and how

to enhance them and protect

them, and how to manage the

behaviour and activity of people.

So I look at Christchurch as a big

national park and it has layers. It

has got street layers, the factory,

housing, it has also got the parks

and it’s about facilitating wildlife

across the city without annoying

people and without people

annoying them.

Would you say birdlife is one

of your biggest passions in life?

The revolution

in heat pumps

is here now!

KEEPING WATCH: Andrew Crossland has been studying birds

since he as a teenager.

Oh yes, absolutely. It’s a calling.

It has given me a really good

career and has taken me around

different parts of the world. I

am probably better known in

Indonesia than what I am in New

Zealand because I have done a lot

of exploration over there, and in

some cases, I was the first person

to visit since Marco Polo. Down

in Sumatra, I have identified

huge bird populations people did

not know existed anymore. That

all happened because in 1985 I

found a bird on the estuary in

Christchurch called the asian

dowitcher and, at that time, it

was one of the rarest birds in the

world and it wasn’t really known

where they wintered. They breed

in the Arctic and no one knew

where they went to. I was very

interested in this particular

species and two years later some

scientists surveyed the southern

part of Sumatra and found quite

a few thousand of these birds.

I finished university in 93 and

I found some old World War 2

military maps of the northern

part of Sumatra, about a 1000km

north of where the birds had

been found. So I went to Sumatra

in 94, 96 and 97 and many years

since, and I doubled the world

population of this bird. While I

was doing that I found thousands

of other species of bird that

migrate from northern Asia

down to Indonesia and Malaysia

and also Australia. Some made it

to New Zealand. I found that first

record for New Zealand when

I was 15, and that bird really

changed my life in terms of me

exploring that part of the world. I

speak the language and I met my

wife there and my kids are half

Kiwi and half Sumatra and we

spend a lot of time over there.

Where did you grow up?

I was born in Motueka, but I

grew up in Christchurch. I went

to Linwood Avenue Primary,

Linwood Intermediate, Linwood

High and then Canterbury

University.

How long have you been

involved with birdlife?

I have done it in a few phases.

I started doing this work in

MEARES WILLIAMS

LAWYERS

LINCOLN OFFICE

43 Gerald Street, Lincoln

1984 when I was 14-years-old, I

think, and became a consultant

for the city council and then I

worked as an ornithologist for

the water services unit from 1997

to 1999, then I went overseas and

I changed careers and was an

embassy officer. I worked for the

New Zealand High Commission

Singapore and then I returned

and I have been a park ranger

since the end of 2002 till now. So

I have been monitoring wildlife

in Christchurch for 35 years.

What is it you love the most

about your job?

It is great to get paid to do

what I love. It is great to start

on something when you’re a

teenager and get paid to do what

you love to do – not many people

have that privilege. I cruise

around the peninsula all the time

doing wildlife stuff, that’s way

better than working in a factory.

I have worked in a factory, I have

worked in a big flash office and

worn the big expensive shoes,

and now it is great to wear a pair

of shorts and go down to the

bush and the swamp.

Why should people care about

birds?

We should care about all of our

indigenous wildlife. They have an

inherent right to live and it is also

a major part of our culture and

birdlife is one of the most visible

parts of our native wildlife.

conservationist spread his wings

I believe all wildlife should be

looked after. Birds also represent

connection throughout the

country with the migration

networks throughout New

Zealand and overseas. Basically,

we have a responsibility to look

after wildlife here and it makes

complete sense to keep an eye

out for it. There is no greater

attraction than looking at

colourful birds in the tree. We

share the planet with these other

life forms and we need to be not

solely focused on our ‘you’re

born, consume and die cycle’.

Has local birdlife deteriorated

or improved since you started in

your role?

I really started getting involved

in major conservation efforts in

1993. That’s when the wetlands

began to get built and there was a

period of mass innovation and a

lot of investment in the city from

then into the quakes.

There was an incredible

increase of birdlife and pretty

much every species of bird

was increasing until the

quakes. When the quakes hit.

Unfortunately there were some

outbreaks of avian botulism and

thousands of birds died over

several years, but we now have

managed to stop that. We have

been very active in combating

that, and last year for the first

time, we had no avian botulism.

What do you see as the biggest

threat to birdlife?

I think it is human

disturbance. I think that predator

control is important and the

provision of habitat is also

important. But what we are doing

is we are trying to put people

in every space where wildlife

is. Humans have occupied big

chunks of the world but they left

a bit around the fringes, like the

edges of wetlands. But now we

have got adventure sports and

other stuff and we are occupying

them for wilderness cycleways

and other activities and now

we are occupying places where

wildlife has been consigned to,

and we are displacing wildlife. In

Christchurch, there is this sort of

thing where people need to enjoy

the wildlife and the environment,

and that is true, but we need to be

very clever in the way that we are

planning our reserve networks

to make sure every important

site has a sanctuary corner that

is not disturbed. We aren’t doing

enough and so there are some

significant threats to wildlife,

which are almost all to do with

too many people in the wrong

place.

BIRD’S-EYE VIEW: Andrew

Crossland surveying birds,

including the asian dowitcher,

on the Indonesian island of

Sumatra.

How long did it take you to

learn how to spot a flock of

hundreds of birds and within

seconds identify their species

and accurately estimate their

numbers?

I guess it took a couple of

years to learn the skills. I’m not

the only person who can do

that obviously. When I began

to get into wildlife as a young

guy, before the Department of

Conversation was formed, there

was an organisation called the

New Zealand Wildlife Service

and also the Ornithological

Society, which is now called

Birds New Zealand. There were

a couple of people there that

acted as mentors and gave me the

opportunity to learn the skills

from them and then you quickly

learn stuff yourself, so I’m sort of

self-trained, but certainly rubbed

shoulders with some highlyskilled

people and a lot of that

knowledge has rubbed off on me.

How did you train yourself?

People say to me ‘you know

the name of a whole load of

bird and animal species’, so I

say to them name 50 types of

cars or dogs and they can do it.

Anyone who is interested in a

certain field and wants to gain

skills in that field quickly learns

through motivation and by using

resources. In the wildlife field, we

have field guides and books with

all the species on them and you

learn the field characteristics of

these species and you learn the

calls by simply being out in the

environment. It’s no different to

a car dealer who can name lots of

different types of cars.

What was your reaction

to winning the Robert Falla

memorial award?

It is quite a prestigious award

and normally you get it for a

lifetime achievement. It came

out of the blue and I wouldn’t

have given it to myself until 30

years time if I even deserved it.

It is a great privilege to get it. It

is kind of just a bit early. Totally

unexpected and I’m kind of

overwhelmed by it. I am sure

there are a lot of people out there

who have done more than me who

should have got it before I got it.

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY

High-profile former politician to

present on state of the environment

Lincoln University looks forward to hosting

Dr Marilyn Waring as this year’s presenter of

the annual State of the Nation’s Environment

Address.

The event is free to the public and all are

welcome.

Dr Waring is an author, academic, and activist

who became New Zealand’s youngest Member

of Parliament when she was elected as a National

Party MP in 1975 at the tender age of 23.

Nine years later, she provoked the 1984 Snap

Election after informing Prime Minister Robert

Muldoon that she would be voting for the

Labour Opposition’s nuclear-free New Zealand

legislation.

Muldoon publicly decried her for her

“feminist anti-nuclear stance”, which he said

was threatening to bring down his one-seat

majority government.

Leaving parliament that year after the fourth

Labour Government came to power, she

attended Waikato University and gained a PhD

in political economy.

Dr Waring is well known for helping to

found feminist economics, which argues that

gender equality, sustainable development, and

women’s rights should be included in economic

modelling and performance.

In 1988, she wrote If Women Counted: A New

Feminist Economics, a book that is still cited

by researchers, policymakers and economists

worldwide.

It includes a critique of the concept of GDP,

which she says disregards the unpaid care work

performed mainly by women, yet counts “oil

spills and wars as contributors to economic

growth”.

For the past 13 years, Dr Waring has been a

professor of Public Policy at AUT in Auckland,

focusing on governance, political economy,

gender analysis and human rights.

Her work has had a significant influence

on other academics, United Nations policies

and government accounting in a number of

countries.

For her presentation at the State of the Nation’s

Environment Address, Dr Waring will discuss

the current Government’s wellbeing budget

and its likely impact on the

wellbeing of the environment.

The university is celebrating

the 20th anniversary of its

annual event, which focuses

on an aspect of the current

condition of the environment

in New Zealand.

Since its inception in 1999,

the address has attracted

a number of notable New

Zealand speakers, including

the Rt. Hon. Helen Clark,

the Hon. Nick Smith, and Tā

Mark Solomon.

CultureFest bringing the

world to Selwyn

CultureFest is back for 2019 bringing the world to Selwyn.

Now in its fourth year, the popular festival will be celebrating the diversity of Selwyn through food,

art, sport and performance, and have a go activities.

CultureFest will take place on Sunday 29 September, 10am–4pm, at the Lincoln Domain.

Visitors can enjoy more than 25 different stage performances by groups from 16 different

countries ranging from Ireland to Indonesia and here in Aotearoa. There will also be workshops

allowing people to experience different cultures from Iran to China and beyond, plus a culinary

world tour with food from more than a dozen different countries including Nigeria, Egypt, Ukraine,

Spain and Iran.

Council Sport Recreation and Wellbeing manager Dave Tippett says CultureFest is part of the

Council’s work to help people from all cultures feel welcome in Selwyn.

“We want to celebrate people from all cultures and ethnicities who have made Selwyn their home

because of the positive enriching impact that diversity has on our community. CultureFest is a

real celebration of that – it’s an experience for the senses, for people listening to and seeing some

amazing performances, arts and crafts, tasting and smelling exceptional, authentic ethnic food

and having a go.”

This year Lincoln University Student’s Association (LUSA) has joined the Council and the

Christchurch Multicultural Council on the organising committee. Taking part in CultureFest will

replace its similar International Night event that was held around the same time, LUSA general

manager Fiona Kay says.

Lincoln has the highest proportion of international students for a New Zealand university and

students and some staff will be taking part as volunteers, stall holders and performers, she says.

“Our students and staff are very much part of the community, they live in the community, work in

the community and some have families with children going to school here. It’s just great engaging

with the community and showcasing the diversity of our student population.”

Strong growth in economy continues

Selwyn residents and visitors continue to back the steady economic growth in the district, according to

latest economic data.

Quarterly economic monitor figures from analysts Infometrics showed Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in

Selwyn grew by 4.5% in the year to June 2019, compared to 2.5% growth nationally and 1.7% growth

across Canterbury. Selwyn recorded the largest annual growth in GDP of any district in New Zealand.

The figures were supported by continuing growth in tourism spending and in electronic card

transactions as a whole across the district.

The amount spent by tourists grew by 10.5% for the year with tourists spending $117 million in the

district compared to a 4.5% increase in spending across the rest of Canterbury. The amount spent in

electronic card transactions rose 11.7% to $90.1 million.

Unemployment dropped slightly to 2.1%, down from 2.2% in the previous quarter and almost half of the

national unemployment rate of 4.1%.

House sales remained steady according to the report along with house building, with the Council

issuing 334 consents for new houses – almost unchanged from 339 in the previous quarter.

Council Chief Executive David Ward says the figures are an encouraging sign of the continued

desirability of the district.

“The diversity of our economy in Selwyn is a strength and the figures show a continued confidence that

this is a great district to live and do business in. It’s encouraging to see that backed up by continued

tourism growth that shows other people are recognising what a great place this is.”

ON THE

ROADS

On the roads this week

Repairs are being carried out on Harper Road. Drainage works are being carried out on

Malvern Hills Road and bridge repairs are being carried out at Mt White. Please stop on

request at these sites. Zig Zag Road will be closed for maintenance from 6.30am–6pm

Monday 2 September until Friday 20 September. A detour will be in place.

Footpath construction is taking place in Darfield on North Terrace, McIlraith Street, Kimberley Road and

Holmes Road. These footpaths will be closed during the construction.

Selwyn Civil Defence

volunteers needed

We’re recruiting more volunteers to build on the district’s ability to

respond to a Civil Defence emergency.

The Selwyn Emergency Management Team is hosting a

recruitment evening at the West Melton Community and

Recreation Centre on Tuesday 8 October at 7pm. Civil Defence

Manager Al Lawn says the Council is looking to fill roles in all three

of its volunteer teams including Response Team, Welfare Team and

Community Response Team.

“This latest round of volunteer recruitment will complement the strong

base of Civil Defence volunteers who live in the district,” Mr Lawn says.

“We’re looking for people to help ensure we can manage a long

duration event, such as an earthquake generated by the Alpine

Fault, and to help the Selwyn community get through.”

Do you have the skills and time to help your community?

Across Selwyn there are more than 30 Community Response Teams

ready to respond in an emergency to support their local area and

provide information to the Emergency Operations Centre. Volunteers

are required to attend one training session per year.

The Selwyn Response Team, specialised and highly trained in

communications, light search and rescue, urban search and rescue,

first aid, and cordon control, requires up to another eight members.

The response team trains weekly.

The Selwyn Emergency Welfare Team, trained to open and

operate a Civil Defence Centre, and support people who have to

evacuate their homes, needs another four volunteers. The Welfare

Team trains fortnightly.

Volunteer members from each team will be available on the night to

answer any questions.

To register your interest in attending the information night please

email civildefence@selwyn.govt.nz by 5pm Friday 4 October.

Making waste-free achievable

Tips for reducing the rubbish in your life will be available this month as

waste-free expert Kate Meads returns with her popular workshops.

During the two workshops, sponsored by the Council, the Kiwi mum

will take people through tips on waste-free parenting and reducing

food waste.

The Waste-Free Parenting workshop takes people through inspiring

ways to minimise waste, while introducing sustainable products for

use in the home. The Food Lovers Masterclass is focusing on ways to

reduce food waste when cooking and preparing meals.

The workshops will be held on Thursday 26 September at the Lincoln

Event Centre with the Food Lovers Masterclass from 10am–12pm

and the Waste-Free Parenting Workshop from 6.30–9pm. Tickets are

$25 each or for a couple. Every ticket comes with a $100 goodie bag.

Bookings are required – to book visit wastefreeparenting.co.nz.

Under-16s run away with Tiny Hill Shield

Ellesmere under-16s. PHOTO: ANGELA JONES PHOTOGRAPHY

VICTORIOUS: The Ellesmere under-16s with the Tiny Hill Shield after their 41-5 win over North

Canterbury at Oxford on Saturday. ​

• By Jacob Page

THE ELLESMERE under-16s

were able to use their speed

on a dry track to beat North

Canterbury 41-5 and win the

Tiny Hill Shield at the Oxford

Oval on Saturday.

Coach Derek Smith said the

players’ mobility around the field

was high on his mind when the

team was picked – and it paid

dividends on a sunny day.

“I felt we built well during

the week, had two very good

trainings on Tuesday and

Thursday, and at the captain’s

run on Friday I thought the team

was on fire.

“We wanted to play a faster

game, a wider game, and keep

them running around, which is

SPORT

how the game panned out.

“We wanted a mobile tight five

that could keep it going for the

full 70min and I thought we had

the best team possible for a dry

track.”

North Canterbury scored first

but Ellesmere replied with two

tries to take the lead into halftime.

“The first half team wore them

down and then in the second

half we scored a lot of points very

quickly.

“Defence was really crucial

for us. North Canterbury got

a try from a pick-and-go early,

but they got close plenty of other

times, but each time we stepped

up and repelled them.”

Smith said Adam Gualter was

a standout playing the first half

at fullback and the second 35min

at No 10.

“It was a gamble for me to

move him because I hadn’t seen

him play first-five, but I was told

he’d go well and, yes, he carved

up there.”

Smith said Lachie Hlaca

impressed at hooker, playing

tight head prop for the first time.

“He gave us tremendous

mobility and was relentless

in defence. I thought he was

outstanding.”

Slow start cost Ellesmere

the McGiffert Trophy

• By Jacob Page

A SLUGGISH start cost the

Ellesmere under-18s in their 35-

24 defeat to North Canterbury

at Oxford on Saturday.

Ellesmere trailed 28-0 at

half-time before mounting a

comeback to be four points

down with 10min to play. But

North Canterbury scored a

final try to put the game out of

reach and lift

the McGiffert

Trophy.

Co-coach

Mike Wilson

said his team

were their

own worst

enemy in the

Mike Wilson

first half.

“We just leaked too

many points. We had a few

opportunities but it took us a

long time to get into the game.

“We lacked a little bit of

penetration and punch

and tried to go wide too

quickly.

“North Canterbury were

more effective and a lot of their

points came from turnover ball

and they showed good support

play to make us pay.

“We had dropped balls and

missed passes, a lot of little

things.

“The start highlighted the

fact we’d only had a week with

WATCHFUL: Ellesmere under-18 defender Connor O’Neill

waits for the right moment to make a tackle.

PHOTO: ANGELA JONES PHOTOGRAPHY

them and it’s hard to form those

combinations and trust in

that time.”

Wilson said he was thrilled

with the character the team

showed to get back into the

game in the second half.

“We constructed points well,

there was more penetration,

there was more accuracy and

patience to go with it.

“We had some boys come on

and do some good things. Liam

Pratt came on at prop and gave

us some good carries.

“Brandon Boyle came on and

was really physical and gave us

what we knew he would with

ball in hand so that was good

to see.

“For the guys to make a game

of it like they did late in the

piece was a really good sign for

the group.”

LEAP: Georgia

Allison is

preparing

to compete

at events in

Morocco and

Australia.

Darfield High show-jumper

off to Morocco and Sydney

• By Jacob Page

IT PROMISES to be a busy

couple of weeks for Darfield High

School show-jumper Georgia

Allison.

The 18-year-old will fly out to

Morocco at the end of the week

for the Global Amateur Tour

where she will ride local

horses and try to clear

1.20m jumps.

Georgia (right) will then

represent New Zealand

at the Marcus Oldham

Australian inter-school

championships in Sydney.

The event at the Sydney

International Equestrian Centre

runs from September 29 to

October 2.

Allison, who lives in Oxford,

will be part of an eight-strong

all women’s team to compete in

the dressage and show-jumping.

However, she will compete solely

in the show-jumping.

Allison said show-jumping has

always been part of her life.

“I’ve been riding since I was

born it feels like – I did my first

competition when I was two.

“International opportunities

are what I’ve been working

towards for a while and I’ve been

short-listed for things but to get

these opportunities is exciting.

“It will be good to test

myself against international

competitors.”

Allison is a selfdescribed

perfectionist.

“I think I’m mildly

OCD, everything has to

be perfect, but I think

that’s why I did a lot of

show-hunting to win

in that grade. In showjumping

you go against the clock

and as long as you jump well

that’s what matters.

“I’m hoping for clear rounds

at both competitions, given I

don’t know the horses I’ll be

riding.

“In Sydney we’ll only be

jumping 1.05m, which will be

different to Morocco, but if I

can be consistent then I’ll be

happy.”

Fourth semi-final

spot still on the line

• By Jacob Page

LINCOLN A and Southbridge

will play for the last semi-final

spot in Selwyn premier netball

on Saturday at the Lincoln Event

Centre.

With Broadfield A, Greenpark

B and Greenpark A already

assured of a place in the top

four, it is a must-win game for

Lincoln A, while Southbridge A

could earn a draw and progress

through.

Week five results went

according to form, with

Southbridge beating winless

Prebbleton A 53-51 in an

unconvincing performance.

Broadfield A continued to

look like the team with the most

momentum as they cruised past

fellow semi-finalists Greenpark B

52-32 on the back of a dominant

second half, and Greenpark A

kept their slim hopes of finishing

top-of-the-table alive with a 62-

42 win over Lincoln A.

Lincoln A coach Dawn Dalley

felt her squad of eight deserved

to make the top four after the

level of commitment the team

had shown throughout the long

season.

“We had trials back in the

SPORT

middle of February, so it makes

for a long season, but they’ve

stuck to their guns all year and it

is a big game for us,” she said.

“I look at this game against

Southbridge as quite important

because it may determine

which ones from our

team come back next

season as we build for the

future.”

Broadfield A coach

Yvonne Crichton-Hill

said she was “very

satisfied with the win over

Greenpark B.

“We were only up by

one at the end of the first quarter

and four by half-time.

“It wasn’t good enough to have

a lead and let it whittle away so

we did well to limit our errors

in the second half and build the

lead.

“We got more turnovers but

treasured the ball while being

more patient.”

A win over Prebbleton A

on Saturday will earn Broadfield

Yvonne

Crichton-Hill

A top spot.

Greenpark A coach Zaylie

Sullivan said her team’s win felt

closer than the eventual 20-goal

margin.

“Lincoln had their moments

and we felt like we weren’t all

that far ahead at times,” she said.

“We had a slow start, we’d let

Lincoln get on a run but what

was good is that we were able to

pull it back when we needed to

do so. We slowed things

down and eventually

limited our mistakes.”

The two Greenpark

teams will meet in the

final week of the roundrobin

with the prospect of

playing each other again

seven days later in a semifinal.

Results: Southbridge A 53,

Prebbleton A 51, Greenpark

A 62, Lincoln A 42, Broadfield

A 52, Greenpark B 32.

Points; Broadfield A 14,

Greenpark B 12, Greenpark A

12, Southbridge A 6, Lincoln

A 4, Prebbleton A 1.

Saturday draw: Lincoln A v

Southbridge A; Broadfield A

v Prebbleton A; Greenpark A

v Greenpark B.

LEAP: Broadfield A goal defence Kayla Williams showed her

skills in the air as they cruised past Greenpark B 52-32 on

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

Native forest saved for future generations

A remnant of native forest placed under

covenant will support native species and

help protect a stream that flows into Lake

Ellesmere/Te Waihora.

Landowners Brent and Anna Fisher

are preserving the native bush on

their property, with support from the

Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust,

and funding from the World Wildlife

Fund, Environment Canterbury and

Christchurch City Council.

Only around one percent of the original

forest area of Banks Peninsula remains,

supporting a wealth of plant and animal

biodiversity.

The Fishers bought the land at Ataahua,

near the eastern end of Lake Ellesmere/Te

Waihora, seven years ago to expand their

farming operation.

“We were always aware of the bush and

Brent and

Anna Fisher

it’s beautiful,” says Brent. “The previous

owner had an ecological survey done by

botanist Hugh Wilson and there’s a tōtara

in there that apparently could be the

biggest tōtara tree on Banks Peninsula.”

When the Fishers bought the land, the

bush block was unfenced and stock could

wander in, damage vegetation, disturb the

waterway and sometimes be a challenge to

muster.

They approached the Banks Peninsula

Conservation Trust for help in fencing the

important remnant off and a conservation

covenant in perpetuity has been placed

over the land, now known as Sally’s Bay,

so it will be preserved and protected for all

time.

“It was a lot bigger than we anticipated

but once we got in there looking to see

where you could fence and what was most

practical, what we would gain from a

farming point of view by grabbing some

more, wasn’t very much at all so we went

with it,” Brent says.

The trust managed the process, securing

funding, contracting fencers, engaging

land and ecological surveyors and

providing the necessary legal support.

The now fenced-off block contains

extraordinary original remnant forest and

expansive regenerating second-growth

bush, with gorse acting as a nurse crop on

the margins for native seedling to flourish

under, says trust covenants officer Marie

Neal.

“The rate of native species regrowth

in this favourable south-facing gully has

been rapid and will be even faster now

that stock have been excluded,” Marie

says. “Protecting the spring-fed waterway

which runs through it will in turn reduce

sediment reaching Lake Ellesmere/Te

Waihora below it.”

“This covenant is an important

biodiversity oasis and stepping stone in a

vast surrounding pastoral landscape which

will help to accommodate the increasing

abundance and spread of native flora and

fauna from other areas,” says Marie.

“It will provide food and shelter to

encourage birds, invertebrates and lizards

who will in turn facilitate the spread of

valuable seeds to further areas.”

“There’s some beautiful species in

there and it’s always nice just wandering

amongst it – it’s like a different world

under that canopy,” says Anna, who adds

that she and Brent are now fencing off and

planting other waterways on the farm at

their own expense.

“We’re trying to protect the water that

goes off this farm and into the lake.”

Young farmers sought

for annual event

Entries for the 52nd season of FMG

Young Farmer of the Year open on 2

September 2019. The event is the flagship

for New Zealand Young Farmers and is

held in high esteem in rural communities

with up to 300 contestants, who compete

for the top spot.

Contestants begin with the District

Contest and Skills Day, and must be a

registered Young Farmers member to

enter. Twenty district finals are held

throughout the country between October

and December. Top contestants from each

final go through to their local Regional

Final held from February to April. The

seven top Regional finalists become the

Grand finalists and battle it out in July for

the title of FMG Young Farmer of the Year.

Contestants are put through a diverse

range of practical, theoretical and

technical farming challenges. Each level

of the competition combines practical

hands on agriculture skills and general

knowledge. The level of complexity and

difficulty increases as the contestants

progress from districts to regionals and

finally at the Grand Final.

The Grand Final is a full-on two-day

event including the practical day, which

includes the hands on competition plus

technical elements such as a project,

interview and an HR challenge. The

contestants must also deliver a convincing

speech on a topic given to them prior. The

SELWYN TIMES

last challenge is a fast paced quiz, where

the contestants battle it out in six rounds

of agricultural and general knowledge

questions.

Research aims to assist

M. bovis eradication

New research will determine if there is

a better way of prioritising investigation

of farms potentially infected with

Mycoplasma bovis. This would enable

the M. bovis programme to more quickly

identify infected farms and take action to

accelerate eradication of the disease from

New Zealand.

The Ministry for Primary Industries

and its M. bovis programme partners

DairyNZ and Beef+Lamb New Zealand

have issued a request for proposals

from organisations to undertake

the Epidemiology Research on Risk

Prioritisation project.

“Farms potentially infected with M.

bovis are currently prioritised for follow

up (casing) using several criteria. This

research aims to determine if there

is anything we can do to improve the

current system, to enable the programme

to more effectively prioritise farms at

high-risk of infection for urgent casing,”

explains Dr John Roche, Chair of the M.

bovis Strategic Science Advisory Group

(SSAG) and MPI’s Chief Science Adviser.

Dr Roche says these high-risk farms

are more likely to need animal movement

controls applied to help slow the spread of

the disease and speed up the eradication.

New Zealand is the first country in the

world to attempt to eradicate M. bovis, a

bacterial disease that can cause significant

animal welfare and productivity issues,

particularly in dairy cattle, including

mastitis that doesn’t respond to treatment,

severe lameness and late term abortions.

“This research has been identified

as a priority in the Mycoplasma bovis

Science Plan, developed by the SSAG

to ensure research projects are directed

where they will have the most impact to

accelerate eradication. It also supports

recommendations made in two recent

reviews into the M. bovis programme,”

says Dr Roche.

This will be a short-term project based

on analysis of existing data.

The M. bovis programme has allocated

up to $30 million over two years for M.

bovis research projects, guided by the

science plan as part of the $870 million

in funding allocated to eradicating M.

bovis.

The risk prioritisation research is the

third science plan project to go out to

market. A large number of proposals for

a major diagnostic research programme

are currently being evaluated, submitted

from researchers based in New Zealand

and overseas. Quotes to undertake a

study into the direct impact of M. bovis

on animals and herds are also being

evaluated.

The M. bovis Epidemiology Risk

Prioritisation request for proposals

has been issued on the Government

Electronic Tender Services (GETS).

Applications must be received by 2pm on

18 September 2019.

Plant potatoes now for Christmas dinner

• By Henri Ham

I’VE ALWAYS thought there’s

nothing more satisfying than

growing and eating your own

veges.

And new potatoes are at the top

of my list over summer. If you’re

like me and want to ensure your

crop is ready for Christmas lunch,

you need to get onto it right now.

Depending on which variety of

potato you choose, you’ll harvest

your spuds in 90 to 160 days. If

you want to do all your planting

at once, I suggest using a combination

of potato varieties to gain a

staggered harvest over summer.

Planting certified seed potatoes

are your best chance at growing

a healthy abundant crop. I

don’t recommend supermarket

potatoes – these are often treated

with sprout inhibitors, and prone

to disease.

If you’re new to growing seed

potatoes, the number of varieties

out there can be a bit daunting.

Here are four kiwi favourites I’ve

picked to help get you started.

Cliff Kidney is a fast-growing

variety (three months) and great

for containers. It has a slightly

pink skin, with a firm and waxy

feel – so good for boiling. Agria

and Ilam Hardy varieties both

take around four months to grow

and again, are both suitable for

cooking. And it’s got a high rot of fungus and diseases – which

resistance, so a good option to try can linger in the soil.

Now you’ve selected your

varieties, you need to make sure

they’ve spouted before you can

plant them.

Take the seed potatoes out of

their bag, and place in a light and

airy space to sprout – but not

in direct sun. Try placing in an

open egg carton and wait for the

sprouts to reach 2-4cm high. This

takes a few weeks, leaving you

plenty of time to get your vege

plots or containers sorted.

To prepare your garden, turn

over old soil and remove any

old clumpy vege roots, then dig

through manure or compost if

needed. Scatter some potato food,

really mixing it through the soil.

This will help you grow high yielding,

quality potatoes. Next, dig

your potato trench (furrow), about

10cm deep and 45 cm apart, if

you’re planting a second row.

Place the sprouted seed potatoes

25cm apart, shoots facing

upwards and cover with 5cm of

soil. Give an initial watering, but

after this, they should be fine with

a little bit of rain. Then each week

add a bit more soil to cover over

any new shoots until you’ve got a

mound around 20cm high.

If you’re short on ground

space, try growing your spuds in

containers. You can grab a potato

centres. But really any old bucket

will do just fine, as long as it has

adequate drainage holes. Simply

add a base layer of soil (10cm)

and a sprinkling of potato food.

Place two to three potatoes per

container and cover with another

layer of soil (5cm). Similarly, to

your garden crop, keep mounding

up the soil as shoots come

through. Continue with this right

until you reach the top of your

container.

In three to five months, depending

on variety, it’ll be time to

harvest. You can look for signs of

the plant flowers dying off, but I

like to just get in and have a gentle

dig around to see what’s there.

If they’re too small for your

liking, re-cover for another few

weeks – and re-brand them as

new year potatoes instead.

We are now entering in to the

tasks to do. Although we have had

some milder weather, there is still a

chance of some nasty weather and

late frosts so patience will be key

when it comes to planting out.

» Establish garden plots and raised beds. Our Garden Soil

Mix and Veggie Garden Mix are excellent products for

» Plan what you want to plant. Remember not to plant

everything at once. Staggering your planting will ensure

you have a continuous supply of produce.

» Sprout seed potatoes ready to plant out. We have Agria,

Jersey Benne and Haylo in store. They come in a pack of

6 potatoes or a 2kg option.

» Raise seedlings. Use Intellipots and Seed Raising Mix

to grow some plants from seed. This way you can get

started indoors now so you are ready to plant out later

this month once the weather warms up.

Add colour to your garden this spring

• By Henri Ham

NEW LAMBS and daffodils are

one of the first signs that spring

is here.

I always get excited when my

garden shoots away and erupts

into colour.

Now is a great time to pop in

some spring colour seedlings. At

this time of year, I’m all about

planting sweet peas and poppies

– two ‘no-fuss’ bright annuals,

that will inject some fun colour in

flower beds.

Sweet peas are a classic favourite

in the garden. I love them because

they’re easy to grow and the

scented variety smells amazing.

Sweet peas are prolific climbers

– trailing their way 2.5m high in

the right conditions. They’re ideal

to climb up stakes and fences, or

enhance (or disguise) a garden

feature.

So what are the right conditions

for planting sweet peas? They like

a well-drained and sunny spot

in your garden. Perhaps along a

fence line, or a trellis to climb up.

Once you’ve got your seedlings,

simply dig small holes 3cm deep,

around 15cm apart. And here’s

my best advice – don’t hold back.

When it comes to sweet peas,

a thick crop looks fantastic, so

plant on all sides of your garden

feature, a couple rows deep if possible.

Come two to three months

you’ll have a wall of spectacular

colour.

When they do start flowering,

pick regularly to encourage more

blooms. They make great cut

flowers, either in a posy on their

own or as part of a spring flower

arrangement. If you keep up your

watering, your sweet peas will

continue to impress right through

summer.

Once you’ve sorted your sweet

peas, I recommend planting some

poppies in front for a cottage

garden feel.

Poppies look great in many

garden settings – I love them in

vast spaces where they can really

run wild. And they self-seed from

year to year, always keeping your

garden interesting.

California ballerina mix poppies

come in an array of pinks,

reds, yellows and oranges. They

grow to around 40cm and look

best planted in mass – creating a

wild look with their double fluted

flowers.

If you’re after a more organised

colour scheme, Anzac poppies

also grow to 40cm but in a lovely,

deep red. Shirley mix produces

pink and red flowers with multiple

fluffy layers of flowering petals

and reaches around 60cm tall.

Lastly, our peony mixed poppies

are taller still – around 90cm, and

flower in pink, red, and white.

Also, the peony poppies are great

for people whose climate is too

warm to grow peony tubers.

Once you’ve got your seedlings,

plant them in a sunny spot,

around 30cm apart. Give them

a good initial watering, to help

them get established. After that,

just light watering is fine, and try

not to apply too much pressure

when watering, as you can squash

your poppies.

In around six to eight weeks

a wave of colour should start

blooming in your flower beds.

VIVID: Sweet

peas and

poppies

(below) will

brighten

your garden

throughout

spring.

Remember to dead-head the

flowers when they die, and

they’ll keep on popping spring

colour into your garden for many

months.

Property Market Update

with Harcourts

Market favours

first home sellers

Usually quieter over winter, the

property market has been active in the

lower price bracket.

“Properties in the first home price

range are likely to receive considerable

interest,” says Glenys French, Branch

Manager, Harcourts Four Seasons Realty

2017 Ltd.

Glenys expects more movement after

the Reserve Bank Governor, Adrian Orr

slashed the official cash rate to a record

low of 1% in early August, putting

pressure on the banks to lower mortgage

rates even further. While this is unlikely

to ‘kick start’ the New Zealand’s housing

market, it will benefit people starting

on the property ladder. Lower interest

payments may also lead to more

property investment given lower returns

from banks. World events such as the

trade embargoes between the United

States and China can also affect market

activity. When there is uncertainty people

tend to do nothing.

“It’s a good time to sell. I haven’t seen

a market like this for a while. Selwyn

property prices are holding up. If you’re

thinking to move on, do it now rather

than wait until the rush of spring,” says

Glenys French.

Buyers are coming from other regions

such as Auckland or returning after

living overseas. Emigrants and people

involved in the earthquake rebuild who

have become permanent residents are

also looking to purchase, while the new

motorway is attracting people to Selwyn,

who would have been town buyers.

With more buyers than sellers at the

lower end, it is definitely a sellers’ market

and a shortage of properties priced

under $550,000 has led to multiple offers.

Glenys says this might change in spring

with potentially more people listing their

homes.

“Many buyers are making educated offers,

especially if they have been working with a

buyer’s agent. While there may be a standout

offer, vendors are often receiving similar

bids with just $10,000 to $15,000 difference.

This gives a seller a true indication of what

their property is worth,” says Glenys.

“There’s some resistance at the higher

end but there’ll always be less market

demand for higher priced properties.”

Glenys says many first home buyers

have been looking in outer areas like

Templeton where there are solid homes

on TC1 land, constructed around the

1970s and priced in the lower bracket.

These homes allow buyers who have

insufficient funds for a new build, to get

onto the property ladder.

While Rolleston is mostly attracting

the second home buyer, smaller section

sizes are leading to higher density

housing, a larger number of new builds,

and a tighter market. New smaller

homes priced at the higher end of

$400,000 to the early $500,000s, are

attracting first home buyers and people

downsizing.

With a large number of Harcourts

agents on the ground and working

together to assist clients, and an auction

system currently favouring vendors, there

is a wealth of experience and resources

available to Harcourts Four Seasons Realty

2017 Ltd’s Lincoln, Rolleston and Hornby

agents. In addition, three agents now offer

commercial experience in the Selwyn

district.

Knowing what could happen

if you can’t complete a sale

Life can sometimes take

an unexpected turn

when you’re buying a

house. Knowing what

could happen to your

deposit and sale and

purchase agreement

if your circumstances

suddenly change and

you are unable to complete

the deal will leave

you in a much stronger

position.

“There are many

“what-ifs” to consider when buying a home and I

urge you to talk through your concerns with your

lawyer or conveyancer as soon as your circumstances

change,” says Real Estate Authority (REA)

chief executive, Kevin Lampen-Smith.

“A sale and purchase agreement is a legally

binding contract between you and the seller, which

becomes unconditional once the allocated time for

meeting your conditions has been reached,” says

Lampen-Smith.

“Once the agreement for sale and purchase becomes

unconditional, then you not only don’t get

your deposit back, but also face the likelihood of

having to purchase the property – even if you can’t

afford to – or having to cancel the agreement and

be sued for any loss the seller suffers as a result of

you failing to settle the sale. So, if your circumstances

suddenly change, you’ll need to speak to

your lawyer as soon as possible.”

Getting finances sorted to buy a property isn’t

easy, but understanding the different deposits

when you buy a house can help. There are two

different kinds of deposits – the deposit you pay

when you make an offer and your bank deposit.

A buyer will usually be required to pay a deposit

when the sale and purchase agreement is signed

by both parties. The deposit paid is often about 10

per cent of the total price you are offering – you

can negotiate a different rate if you need to – and

is usually held in a trust account by the real estate

agent. The real estate agent takes their commission

fee out of this amount when the agreement

becomes unconditional and the remaining balance

goes to the seller.

When you arrange a home loan with a bank, you

must have a certain amount of funds to use as a deposit

– your bank deposit. This deposit will more

13

than likely be different from the

amount your sale and purchase

agreement states that you must

pay the seller. For example, your

bank may need you to have 20

per cent of the purchase price

available as a bank deposit in

order to secure your mortgage,

even if you only have to pay the

seller a 10 per cent deposit.

“When drawing up a sale and

purchase agreement, you can

include conditions of the sale,

such as a title search, valuation,

LIM report, obtaining finance, obtaining insurance

and builder’s inspection,” Lampen-Smith says.

“Including conditions can really help – you can

even negotiate your sale and purchase deposit.”

“If you find that you need extra time to complete

any conditions of the purchase, you must speak to

your lawyer or conveyancer immediately. They will

negotiate with the seller through their real estate

agent or lawyer or conveyancer,” Lampen-Smith

says.

“Any changes to the conditions will need to be

added to the sale and purchase agreement and

signed off by you and the seller. If your conditions

are not able to be met, eg, the building fails

the property inspection, then you may be able to

cancel the agreement and then your deposit will be

refunded to you.”

“It’s very important that you speak to a lawyer

before finalising your offer conditions so that they

adequately protect you if something that you find

out about the property during the conditional

period is not to your satisfaction,” Lampen-Smith

says.

“There is potential that defaulting on a sale,

because of finances, could affect future borrowing.

Talk this through with your lawyer and it would

also be wise to seek advice from a qualified financial

adviser. A financial adviser may also be able to

talk you through the pros and cons of income protection

insurance for situations such as sickness,

disability, unemployment and death.”

“In life, there are so many things we cannot be

sure of, but it’s always worth doing your homework

and seeking solid professional advice when

purchasing a home.”

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

A natural

partnership

Attracted by increasing facilities and services,

people are choosing Rolleston as a place to retire.

The effect is a change in the town’s

demographics and urban landscape as

retirement villages are constructed.

Located in the eastern frame of

Rolleston, Woodcroft Estate has been

an early player in bringing retirement

complexes to the town. On completion, it

will comprise 78, two or three bedroom

units (62 duplexes and 16 standalone

villas).

The beauty of Woodcroft Estate is the

independence and flexibility it offers

residents who will ultimately own and

manage their village.

Woodcroft Estate offers two and three

bedroom duplex units and villas, which

are larger and more spacious than is

typical in many retirement villages. Also of

particular appeal is the idea of a hassle and

maintenance free lifestyle, in a safe and

supportive community.

“Woodcroft Estate has recently gained

momentum with around a third of the

planned duplex and standalone villas

already sold,” advises Manor Group

representative, Corinne Blackie.

The construction of Woodcroft Estate

has been a natural partnership between

the Manor Group as owners, and

Generation Homes Christchurch who

are recognised builders in Rolleston, and

the company behind the Devon Green

development.

“The Manor Group is a great company

offering a quality product,” says Evan

Beker, Joint Venture Partner of Generation

Homes Christchurch.

“They’re well organised, ethically based

and very committed to this project, going

out of their way to assist clients.”

Corinne replies that as clients are buying

a home they will live in for the rest of their

lives, she likes to accommodate their needs

wherever able to do so.

“Generation Homes have been

wonderful and really easy to work with. If

you need something done, they come and

sort it straight away,” advises Corinne.

Plans for a pavilion complex at

Woodcroft Estate are currently underway

with Generation Homes due to start

construction in early 2020. There will be

lounge, kitchen and bathroom facilities,

a barbecue area and a bowling green

for residents and their guests to enjoy.

Currently, residents come together for

monthly morning teas, with prospective

residents welcome to attend. Future plans

are for a resident manager, a role Corinne

currently fills.

Woodcroft Estate offers a choice of

five different unit designs. Prices begin

at $420,000 for a standard two bedroom

116sqm duplex with a single garage.

The largest standalone villa is 173sqm

and has a starting price of $560,000. The

actual cost of a unit or villa will however,

depend on its individual specifications and

features. While ownership is on a Licence

to Occupy basis, the full capital value

passes to the owner when a unit is sold.

This means owners benefit from capital

gains on their units or villas.

The Woodcroft Estate show

home is open 10am until

2pm from Monday to Friday,

at 34 Kendon Avenue. All

viewing is by appointment.
