Harrison meets cricket heroes

HARRISON ROONEY got

to meet some of his heroes on

Friday when he was the coin

toss kid for the first Twenty20

international between New

Zealand and England at Hagley

Oval which England won by

seven wickets.

The Rolleston 10-year-old

who plays for Weedons and

attends Clearview Primary

School joined stand-in Black

Caps captain Tim Southee

and English skipper Eoin

Morgan for the pre-match coin

toss on the pitch prior to the

match.

Speaking after he stepped off

Darfield,

Lincoln

may lose

police

• By Devon Bolger

POLICE CHIEFS have not ruled

out cutting numbers at some

stations to bolster a 24-hour,

seven days a week, service at

Rolleston.

The district’s policing is currently

being reviewed with the

major emphasis on planning

for a better resourced station at

Rolleston.

The district’s acting police chief,

Inspector Natasha Rodley, has

confirmed a review is under way

into how police are dispersed

across the district.

The Selwyn Times has learned

the Darfield and Lincoln stations

are at the forefront of considerations

for cuts.

She said as part of the review, it

is proposed that staff will operate

from the Rolleston station 24/7.

The station is currently open

from 8am-5pm Monday to Friday.

Inspector Rodley said officers

being redeployed from the

Darfield and Lincoln stations

to Rolleston is an option being

considered.

But she said police coverage and

level of service will remain the

same for all areas. •Turn to page 7

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

from the editor’s desk

IT LOOKS like some police stations in the

district will lose officers in a major rejig of

resources (page 1).

Word on the street is the Lincoln and

Darfield stations will lose an officer each to

bolster the district police base at Rolleston.

The plan is to make Rolleston a 24/7 station.

The 24/7 coverage is a positive move for the community and

logically Rolleston is the place for that roster to operate from.

But will taking officers from say Lincoln or Darfield have any

affect on policing in those areas? Probably not in Lincoln, it is

just over 10 minutes away from Rolleston, a lot faster if you are

in a police car going at warp speed.

Darfield? A helicopter taking off from Rolleston might be

helpful.

Pay rise plan for

deputy mayor and councillors

Tickets

7 MARCH

On Sale

LINCOLN

Now

www.selwynsounds.co.nz

In Brief

• By Devon Bolger

DISTRICT councillors will

vote today whether to give

themselves a pay rise.

The newly-elected district

council will vote on the base

salary for councillors being

$42,789.

That is an

increase of

$3700 from

last year

when the

base salary

was $39,089.

The

district

Malcolm Lyall

council will

also vote on a

$51,342 salary for Deputy Mayor

Malcolm Lyall.

That is an increase of $6770

from his salary of $44,572 last

year.

Mayor Sam Broughton’s

salary is excluded from the pool

and is paid separately by the

Remuneration Authority.

The authority has allocated

$479,232 for the total

remuneration of the district

council.

All of the money in the pool

must be spent and additional

pay can be allocated to extra

responsibilities, such as the

mayor, deputy mayor or

chairs and deputy chairs of

committees.

The proposed deputy mayor’s

salary has been set 20 per cent

higher than councillors.

In the report that will be

presented to the district council

today, chief executive David

Ward said: “On the matter of the

deputy mayor’s remuneration,

councillors gave consideration

to the increasing role and

responsibility of that position,

and were of the view that

given the sustained growth

across the district, demands

on the mayor will continue to

increase.”

Mr Broughton said the

increase in salary is due to the

increase in population.

“The Remuneration Authority

looks at a number of things

when allocating the money pool,

and that includes population

and assets. As our population

has increased that has been the

biggest driver for that change,”

he said.

RESPONSIBILITY:

The proposed

salary of the

newly-elected

district councillors

is $3700 higher

than last year

and the deputy

mayor’s is more

than $6700

higher.

Mr Broughton said paying all

of the councillors the same was

the fairest way forward.

“We decided that

although there are different roles

each councillor gets involved

in and puts their hand up for,

overall it’s a fair way to pay

everyone the same amount for a

job that is pretty even across the

board.”

Mr Broughton said

remuneration for community

board members is not included

in the pool and is allocated

separately by the authority.

CRASH INJURY

A person was taken to

Christchurch Hospital after a

crash near Weedons. The twovehicle

collision at the intersection

of Maddisons and Curraghs Rds

was reported to police at 8.25am

on Tuesday. St John spokesman

Gerard Campbell said the crash

left one person seriously injured.

WIND TESTS FIREFIGHTERS

Lincoln volunteer firefighters

attended two jobs on Wednesday

night due to strong southerly

winds. Chief fire officer Jeremy

Greenwood said they attended a

callout on Boundary Rd at 7.30pm

where a branch had fallen onto

power lines. The brigade was back

out less than two hours later to

attend a rubbish fire on Weedons

Rd at about 9pm. Mr Greenwood

said the fire was extinguished

quickly.

Setback for brave

transplant teen

• By Devon Bolger

WEST MELTON teenager

Maddie Collins is recovering

after signs of kidney rejection

left her in Starship Hospital for

a week.

The 15-year-old suffers from

kidney disease, nephrotic

syndrome, and underwent her

second kidney transplant in

January last year.

A recent blood test showed

Maddie’s creatinine levels had

spiked to 330.

Typically, 60-80 is normal and

Maddie’s normal is about 170.

Maddie’s mother, Sarah

Manson-Collins said this began

a whirlwind of scans, needles

and tests that landed them in

Starship Hospital.

“We got rushed into Christchurch

Hospital with some IV fluids

hoping that would resolve it but it

didn’t. We were then flown to Starship

where she had a kidney biopsy

that showed she had another

bout of rejection,” she said.

Maddie then started a course

of high dose steroids which she

has since responded to.

She and her mother flew back

to Christchurch last week.

Mrs Manson-Collins said it

will be another week before they

know if any permanent damage

has been done to the kidney.

“It just shows us how vulnerable

and fragile her health is. When

she’s well then she’s well but when

she’s sick she is really sick.

“As of right now, she is doing

okay. She’s pretty exhausted

from the side effects of such a

high dose steroids,” she said.

In spite of the health-scare,

Maddie competed in the

Canterbury Dressage Spring

Series equestrian competition at

McLeans Island on Sunday, winning

the intro ponies division.

“As a mum, it’s really delightful

to watch her compete because

riding is Maddie’s lifeline. I

know that she’s ready to tackle

anything and can keep going

when she is determined to ride,”

she said.

Maddie received what was

termed a ‘miracle’ second kidney

transplant in January last year

after being told there was only a

two per cent chance of finding a

match in New Zealand.

The first was donated six years

ago by her father Adam but her

body rejected it.

RECOVER: West Melton’s Maddie Collins spent the week in Starship Hospital after a biopsy

showed she was rejecting her new kidney. ​

There have been a series of ups

and downs since the transplant.

Maddie ended up in Starship

Hospital in July this year with

signs that her new kidney was

failing.

She was struggling with declining

function and high blood

pressure.

The pair spent a week at Ronald

McDonald House Grafton

Mews in Auckland as Maddie

was treated.

The family didn’t expect to be

SELWYN TIMES

able to find the second kidney

match in New Zealand.

They were planning a trip to

The John Hopkins Hospital in

Baltimore, United States, to find

one when they were notified an

organ had been found.

Student scraps uploaded to website

• By Devon Bolger

POLICE ARE investigating

an Instagram account which

featured videos of Rolleston

College students fighting.

Three videos of students fighting

at Rolleston College were

posted on the account rolly_

colly_scraps which had 150 followers

before it was deleted.

Sergeant Phil Bayne said police

are seeking advice from its

digital forensics team.

“We will then ascertain if

there’s anything we can do

about it. The investigation is

around what the legality is and

what police can do in regards to

it,” he said.

Rolleston College principal

Steve Saville said the school has

been made aware of the account

and has been communicating

with police.

He said two of the videos are

from historic incidents and the

third one happened last week.

“The incident was dealt with at

the time but no action has been

taken yet because we are still

exploring it,” said Mr Saville.

“One of the videos is from

an incident in term 1 when a

student from another school

came on to the grounds. That

was reported quite widely at the

time.”

ONLINE: Videos of high school students fighting were

uploaded to a dedicated Instagram account which police are

now investigating.

The teenager disguised herself

as a Rolleston College student

by wearing a school jacket and

entered the grounds unnoticed

before attacking a 13-year-old

student.

The issue of social media is

a problem many schools are

struggling to control.

A website which identified

Christchurch high school

students and made allegations

of sexual and physical assault

and under-age sex has been shut

down.

Netsafe has confirmed it

received four complaints

last week about the

anonymous gossip website,

chchgossipgirlxoxo.

Content on the website included

allegations of both physical

and sexual assault, names of

students and schools, under-age

sex, pregnancy and bullying.

One post said a male student

had sex with a 13-year-old

female.

Students from Christchurch

Girls’ High, Marian College,

St Bede’s College, Shirley Boys’

High, Rangi Ruru, Villa Maria,

Christchurch Boys’ High and

Hagley College were mentioned

on, chchgossipgirlxoxo.

Rolleston College

principal resigns

THE PRINCIPAL of Rolleston

College has resigned and will

move back to Auckland.

The school’s board of trustees

announced the resignation of

founding principal Steve Saville

on Friday.

Chairwoman Lynley Shaw said

Mr Saville and his wife Di, who

also teaches at the school, are

returning to Auckland where he

is taking up an education consultancy

role.

“This allows Steve to continue

his passion of helping others

deliver education in a relevant,

learner-centred format, ensuring

that learning engages our young

people.

“Steve joined the team to build

our college over 5 years ago and

has been pivotal in establishing

the board’s vision, strategic plan

and success of the school to date,”

she said.

Rolleston College first opened

in 2017.

“On behalf of the board. I wish

to express our sincere appreciation

to Steve for his contribution

to the college and wish them

both every success for the future.

“The board will now commence

the process of recruiting

and appointing a new principal

during the early part of 2020,”

she said.

Community preparing

for highland games

HORORATA BUSINESSES are

in for a huge boost on Saturday.

The annual Hororata Highland

Games sees the area swell by

about 10,000 people.

GAS Hororata owner Margaret

Cross said it is the best day of the

year for businesses.

“It brings people in and

helps to fund us. All in all, it’s

just a great day for tourism in

Hororata,” she said.

Ms Cross said she also likes

getting to meet the new people

who come for the games.

The Hororata Highland

Games is an event staged by the

Hororata Community Trust.

The games see traditional

Scottish competitions take place

over for one day at the Hororata

Domain.

A new event for this year is

the Best Dressed Lad and Lassie

competition.

Said event manager Cindy

Driscoll: “We are looking forward

with excitement to see a

range of creative tartan outfits

paraded on the main stage following

the welcome ceremony

to be judged by fashion industry

icons,” she said.

Ms Driscoll said they are expecting

10,000 people to attend

the event.

The chieftain of this year’s

games will be entrepreneur and

business owner Peri Drysdale.

“Having grown up on a farm

in Windwhistle only 20min from

Hororata, Peri has deep connections

to our community, and we

are honoured that she will be our

2019 chieftain,” said Hororata

Community Trust chairman

Richard Lang.

Ms Dysdale founded fashion

company Untouched World

which produces ecologically sustainable

clothing, and founded

the Untouched World Foundation

which runs ground breaking

Leadership for Sustainable

Future programmes.

Scotland is close to her heart as

her husband was born there and

her son now lives in Edinburgh,

Ms Drysdale said.

“I have watched the Hororata

Highland Games grow over the

last nine years with interest.

The Highland Spin competition

intrigues me, the concept of taking

wool from a raw product and

turning into a garment in just 6.5

hours sounds like a challenge. I

am also looking forward to judging

the Best Dressed Lad and

Lassie competition where I am

sure we will see some creative

use of Tartan.”

World-renowned Steve

McDonald Celtic singer will be

present again at the games this

year.

The festival also hosts the

countries biggest one-day Highland

Dancing competition, toplevel

pipe bands and solo pipers

and strong men and women

competing in heavy events such

as the caber toss.

Event manager Cindy Driscoll

said: “The competitions are no

doubt the heart of the games but

the festival surrounding them

is what really elevates the event

to the next level. In amongst

the stalls, food vendors and

fairground you expect to find at

a festival there are some activities

and entertainment which are

inimitable to the games.”

•The Hororata Highland

Games will be held on Saturday

at the Hororata Domain, gates

open 9am to 4.30pm. Early bird

tickets are on sale for $20 an

adult and $5 a child until Friday.

Potential police restructure

TELL US

what you think!

CUT-BACKS: Darfield and Lincoln police stations may lose officers to Rolleston

in a potential restructure.

•From page 1

“The proposal brings

more staff into the wider

Selwyn area and that is a

good thing for everyone,”

she said.

Based on Stats NZ figures

from the 2018 census,

Selwyn’s population is

60,561.

The population of Rolleston

is 16,250, Lincoln, 6100,

and Darfield, is 2230.

The police officers’

union, The New Zealand

Police Association, is aware

of potential changes.

Police Association

president Chris Cahill said:

“The association is aware

of potential changes in the

Selwyn District and we

work every day with issues

our members raise.

“At this stage there is

no formal process and no

formal proposal, and the

association would only

become involved if and/or

when it receives a formal

proposal.’’

Springs Ward councillor

Debra Hasson said she was

aware of a potential police

restructure.

“I’d like to see the police

remain in the areas but

I understand that due to

the close proximity of all

the stations in the district

that if it was centralised

through Rolleston, those

communities would still

have access to the police,”

she said.

However, cutting back in

Darfield could be more of

an issue, she said.

“I would be more concerned

about not having

enough police in that area, if

that is the call that is made

under this restructure.

“I think we are very

fortunate in these areas

that the police have come

on board and strongly

supported community

watch schemes which hugely

benefit the community.”

Helen and Rodney Williamson respond to the Selwyn Times article

about a proposed liquor store in Tai Tapu

My wife and I would like

to support the application

for a liquor store in the

vacant Belleza Boutique

building.

Our reasoning being

that we believe this type

of outlet is better suited

for the promotion of

educated, moderate

drinking habits in our

community.

This is based on

personal experience while

I was working in central

Auckland last winter.

There was a boutique

liquor store specialising

in wines nearby to my

apartment.

While their prices were

on average above those

of the supermarkets

and large chain liquor

outlets, the staff were

friendly, knowledgeable

and more than willing to

help educate customers

regarding the various

grape varieties and taste

etc.

Those people seeking to

consume large amounts

of alcohol would never

frequent that type of

establishment; preferring

I’m sure, the anonymity

and lower price provided

by the bulk retailers.

A niche market

specialised liquor store

on that site would add

character to an area that

badly needs commerce of

some sorts, and should

not impinge on other local

businesses in any way.

Malvern Community

Board member Bill

Woods responds

to the Selwyn

Times article on

the district council

spending more

than $165,000 on

severance payments

last year.

Does the Selwyn District

Council think that

hiding behind the Privacy

and Employment Acts

that the issue will

be swept under the

carpet?

I have news for them

as we as citizens have the

right to know what the

circumstances were for

the severances to take

place.

The only way that this

issue can be kept from

publication under both

acts is a confidentiality

agreement being signed

by both parties.

Let me assure you that I

will not rest until the facts

of these severances are

made available.

READY: Three new and eight returning councillors were sworn

in at the district council’s inaugural meeting last week.

Lyall back as deputy mayor

MALCOLM LYALL is back as

deputy mayor after a unanimous

vote from his district council

colleagues.

The vote took place at the inaugural

district council meeting last

week where the councillors were

also sworn in.

It was newcomers Shane Epiha,

Sophie McInnes and Jenny Gallagher

first meeting as councillors.

They, along with family and

friends, were welcomed into the

Tai Tapu Community Centre

with a mihi whakatau led by

representatives of Te Taumutu

Rūnanga.

Mayor Sam Broughton spoke

about his hopes for the long-term

view of the district council as

he took the oath of office, before

overseeing his fellow councillors

as they took the oath.

“My hope for this council for

the next three years is that we will

continue making decisions our

children will be proud of, he said.

“Decisions that are timely for

today, but also thinking about

the future needs of Selwyn. It’s an

exciting time to be in a leadership

position and there’s also a responsibility

to spend public money

wisely.”

The inaugural meeting of the

Malvern Community Board followed

the district council’s,

The five board members were

sworn in and John Morten was

elected chair with Karen Meares

as deputy chair.

A postcard quality day out

YOU REALLY have to love

spring in Christchurch.

Beyond the fact it’s such a

relief to see the colour green after

weeks of living under the world’s

biggest summer’s “coming soon”

sign, that is Christchurch, there is

a lot more to do in the city.

On Monday, Laura and I took

advantage of the perfect sunshine

and temperature to take Vittoria

to the Big Band Picnic in Victoria

Square. We’d taken her last year

and the music had moved her

before she could even walk.

She had held herself up on her

pram and started, for want of a

better word, twerking.

So we were confident she

would enjoy it and were not

disappointed.

There were so many jazz hands

and sways being thrown about

from Vittoria that Laura and I

could eat an entire pizza without

fending off the hungering mouth.

Possibly the fact that it was

a mushroom pizza may have

helped, but I doubt it.

Her dance moves and obvious

enjoyment were super cute.

The music and the atmosphere

even stopped her running off in

spite of her normal tendencies

whenever we want to sit down

and relax in a public area.

The only thing that distracted

her from the music for any length

of time were a couple of dogs, her

new favourite animal apparently.

To celebrate how well it was

all going we decided to take part

in a century-old Christchurch

tradition and get a treat from Ice

Cream Charlie. Having grown up

in Waikuku Beach, I’d never actually

heard of Ice Cream Charlie

until last year, explaining why it

wasn’t just Vittoria’s first taste.

So far we’d managed to tick off

two big ticket items from the list

of stuff to do in the city when it’s

sunny. To round out the day we

made the daring call to skip Vittoria’s

afternoon nap and head to

the Sign of the Takahe to get the

trifecta. And a coffee.

Fortunately the gamble paid

off and the wee trooper held

her own on all of 10 minutes of

VITTORIA

IN SYNC:

Picnic.

pram-sleep, lasting through the

coffees and even a walk up to

the nearby lookout. She only got

grumpy when it was home time,

and that’s normal.

More sunshine and more

events mean more full and fun

days, so exciting times ahead.

On another note, an update on

last week; I’d said I was worried

about how I would fare washing,

drying and changing a toddler on

my own post-swim classes.

In the end I managed to avoid

the whole issue by just taking her

home to shower – genius.

The Malvern Community Arts Council (MCAC) has

invited a number of contemporary Māori artists

to exhibit their work in Darfield at Te Huanui.

“Because these artists have close ties to Ngāi

Tahu, Canterbury, and traditional Māori artforms,

we have entitled the exhibition ‘Turangawaewae’

(the place we belong through kinship and

ancestry)”, Philip Baldwin, MCAC Chairperson

commented.

Alice Spittle uses all natural materials—muka

(NZ flax fibre), harakeke (NZ flax), and feathers—

to create garments, food-gathering baskets, and

fishing nets, which were instrumental in the dayto-day

survival of Māori.

Jennifer Rendall’s “Psychedelic Kumara

Migration”, the screen-print in this exhibition,

is a light hearted look at the much researched

migration of the kūmara to New Zealand from

South America, depicted with clematis, insects

like the sphinx moth, and stars associated with

kūmara in its growth and harvest cycle.

Ranui Ngarimu is exhibiting her work with

traditional Ngāi Tahu weaving fibres and

techniques. She is an authority on the practice,

values, and materials of Māori customary

weaving.

Leisa Aumua has a passion for paki (rain capes)

and waikawa as historical woven vessels. She

finds enjoyment in working with colour and

pattern throughout her paintings.

Works by these artists, as well as Rua Pick and

Paula Rigby, can be viewed at Te Huanui until

Thursday 28 November, 10am–4pm (Mondays

excepted).

HAPPY: Rolleston’s Harrison

Rooney with the official coin.

Young fan’s

big moment

•From page 1

Speaking after he stepped off

the pitch, Harrison said: “It was

absolutely amazing, I loved being

out there and meeting some of my

favourite players.

“I’ve been playing cricket since

I was five because my Dad taught

me. I want to be a cricket player

like Trent Boult one day.”

Head of Sponsorship at ANZ,

Sue McGregor, said Harrison

was one of 28 young cricketers

selected to take part in the prematch

ritual this cricket season.

“Young Kiwi cricket players are

often inspired by New Zealand’s

professional players, so we wanted

to give them an opportunity to

meet their sporting heroes. We

hope all Coin Toss Kids winners

have fun, enjoy the experience

and are inspired to continue to

play the game,” she said.

New bylaw plan to control animals

• By Devon Bolger

THE CONTROL of animals,

other than dogs, could be subject

to a new bylaw.

The district council is considering

implementing the bylaw

which will cover public health,

safety and nuisance problems

that can arise with

animals in urban areas.

Group manager environmental

and regulatory

services Tim Harris said:

“The huge population

growth we’ve had in the

district has also meant a

big increase in pets and

animals living in our

towns. We’re expecting this

to continue as the population

continues to grow, so it’s a good

time to start thinking about the

issues that come with that,” he

said.

Dogs are already managed

under separate legislation and

the District Plan, which is

currently under review, will

set out controls for larger scale

and commercial activities like

kennels and animal boarding

facilities.

The district council is considering

whether any specific controls

on cats should be included

in the bylaw.

Mr Harris said: “We thought

Tim Harris

it was important to let people

know that we would be considering

cats as part of the discussion

as they are, along with dogs,

a very popular pet in the district

but they are only one of the

animals that will be part of this

discussion.

“While we expect people

to have views on microchipping

and desexing

we are asking for people’s

views on a range of possible

issues that could be

considered.”

The community is being

asked for their input

into the bylaw before it is

proposed.

“Anything put forward will be

considered in the development

of a draft bylaw and people will

have further opportunities to

comment on the bylaw as it

moves through the full consultation

process,” Mr Harris said.

The community feedback will

be used to help develop a draft

bylaw which will then be opened

for formal consultation in mid

next year.

POPULAR PETS: The district

council is considering a

bylaw that would place

controls on cats.

Observing centipedes no small feat

BACKYARD CRITTERS

Mike Bowie is an ecologist

who specialises in

entomology (insects and

other invertebrates). Each

week he introduces a

new species found in his

backyard at Lincoln. His

column aims to raise public awareness

of biodiversity, the variety of living things

ROLLING LOGS or rocks is a great way to

find invertebrates and one species that is

often observed if you do this is the brown

of a hiding place. They reach 18 to 30mm

in length, 4mm wide and have 15 pairs of

legs.

Millipedes and centipedes are often

confused with each other, but can be easily

distinguished by the number of legs per

segment – centipedes have one pair while

millipedes have two pair per segment.

Another difference is their respective

diets. Centipedes are predators of softbodied

insects and worms, whereas

millipedes are detritovores, eating dead

plant material. The brown centipede are

thought to live for three to five years.

THe fear of centipedes probably causes

more suffering than the beasts themselves.

THere is one exception though – the

giant 25cm long, venomous centipede

(Cormocephalus rubriceps) found in the

North Island can inflict a decent bite.

Leeston-Southbridge find their

groove in Country cricket

SPORT

• By Jacob Page

LEESTON-SOUTHBRIDGE

Captain Toby Doyle believes

his team is gaining momentum

in the Canterbury Country

45-over competition after a

comprehensive 100-run win over

Cheviot at Mandeville Sports

Grounds on Saturday.

The defending champions

managed 225 for nine with opener

Rupert Young making 77 and

Tim Gruijters scoring 56.

The pair put on 110 for the

third wicket.

Gruijters then took threw

wickets with the ball as Cheviot

were entitled for 125 inside 40

overs.

Doyle said the partnership was

something the team was wanting

to replicate on a regular basis.

“We are trying to get our

top-order to form at least one

partnership of more than 100

each week,” he said.

“I thought our total was about

30 above par and when you get a

score like that, it’s about bowling

in the right zones and waiting for

mistakes.”

It was a tough weekend for

other Selwyn-based teams,

especially Darfield, which lost

a one-wicket heart-breaker to

Southbrook at Darfield Domain.

The hosts almost defended 77

all out but a 22-run 10th wicket

stand between Johnathan Green

and Luan Blom got the visitors

home.

Darfield captain Mike Pauling

said his team, which managed

four one-handed catches in the

field, eventually ran out of luck.

“We had a couple of half

chances but nothing that was

clear-cut,” he said.

He praised opening bowler

Henry Shipley who took five for

27 from his nine overs.

“We spoke after he’d bowled

three overs and he said it wasn’t

feeling like it was his day, then

he took three wickets in 10 balls

and was away.

Pauling said the batting simply

had to get batter.

“It’s been an issue for us the

past couple of years but if we

want to be in contention, we’ll

have to be better,” he said.

with more than 16 overs to spare

at Sefton Domain.

Weedons fell short by 14 runs

to Oxford.

Weedons restricted the hosts

to 131 all out in 44 overs at

Pearson Park but we’re bowled

out themselves for 117 inside 33

overs.

Weedons captain Sam Wilson

said soft dismissals and a lack of

application from the top-order

hurt his team’s hopes and undid

a lot of good work in the field.

“We all felt comfortable out

there, but poor shots and perhaps

not being switched on to

the conditions hurt us,” he said.

Results:

Leeston-Southbridge beat Cheviot

by 100 runs; Southbrook beat

Darfield by one wicket, Oxford

beat Weedons by 14 runs; Sefton

beat Lincoln by nine wickets.

Points: Southbrook 28, Cheviot

Sefton 24, Oxford 20, Lincoln 16,

Weedons 16, Darfield 8.

We need your help

to get recycling right

It’s important that we reduce the amount of nonrecyclable

stuff going into recycling bins and make

sure we’re all doing our best to recycle right.

With the international recycling markets in turmoil, we're

lucky in Selwyn that we can still recycle the range of

items we can in our recycling bins - but when they are

contaminated with non-recyclable items it becomes a big

issue.

Wrong or dirty items in your recycling, such as food, liquids

and general rubbish can get mixed in with other recycling

and contaminate it. This can mean items that would have

been recycled have to go to landfill.

These items include soft plastics (any plastic you can

scrunch into a ball, such as courier bags, bubble wrap,

bags around clothing or products purchased), takeaway

coffee cups, clothes and toys, polystyrene, pots and pans,

tinfoil. Small items such as lids cause issues as they are

too small to be identified and sorted by the machine or can

come loose out of bales during transport and end up in

waterways.

If in

doubt, leave

it out of the

recycling

bin!

The best way to make sure your

items are recyclable is to check

the label under the lid of your bin. If it’s not on the label then

it doesn’t go in the yellow bin. If you’re unsure about an item

you can also check on the Council website selwyn.govt.nz/

recycling, or get in touch with our team on (03) 347 2800 or

solid.waste@selwyn.govt.nz.

Please help keep contamination out of our recycling bins.

Remember recyclables must be clean, dry and

loose. If in doubt, leave it out of the recycling bin!

Selwyn’s Easy Recycling Guide

These items go into the

recycling bin loose:

· Cardboard and paper

· Rigid plastic bottles and

containers 1–7

· Aluminium cans, tins, kitchen

and bathroom aerosols

· Glass bottles and jars

All items to be empty and

clean, cardboard flattened and

lids in rubbish.

These items go into the

rubbish bin:

· Soft plastics (any plastic you

can scrunch into a ball)

· Takeaway coffee cups

· Clothes and toys

· Polystyrene

· Pans and foils

Check the sticker under the

yellow bin lid – if it’s not listed,

then it needs to go in the red bin.

Now more than ever we need your

help to get recycling right.

It’s vital that we reduce contamination in the recycling collections.

Unsure about an item? Check out selwyn.govt.nz/recycling, or get in

A view to the future at

inaugural Council meeting

The new Council with Chief Executive David Ward. Not pictured Councillor Grant Miller.

There was a warm welcome and a commitment to the future as the new Council was sworn in on

Wednesday (30 October).

The new councillors, family and friends were welcomed into the Tai Tapu Community Centre with a

mihi whakatau led by representatives of Te Taumutu Rūnanga for the Council’s inaugural meeting.

Mayor Sam Broughton spoke about his hopes for the long-term view of the Council as he took the

oath of office, before overseeing his fellow councillors as they took the oath.

“My hope for this Council for the next three years is that we will continue making decisions our

children will be proud of,” he said. “Decisions that are timely for today, but also thinking about

the future needs of Selwyn. It’s an exciting time to be in a leadership position and there’s also a

responsibility to spend public money wisely.”

Alongside the eight returning councillors three new councillors were sworn in, joined by their

families and supporters.

The meeting also saw the unanimous election of Councillor Malcolm Lyall as deputy mayor.

It was also the inaugural meeting of the Malvern Community Board, where the five board

members were sworn in. John Morten was elected chair and Karen Meares as deputy chair.

Youth Council elections open

Applications for the 2020/21 Selwyn Youth Council are open now

and young people between 14 and 24 years of age who live in

Selwyn are encouraged to apply.

The Youth Council is made up of 12 young people who are passionate

about making a positive difference for young people in Selwyn.

This year it has run youth-focused BOOST events, including BOOST

Skate and BOOST Spook. Members also made public submissions

to the full Council on issues affecting youth, hosted the ‘What do

YOUth think’ survey to gather young people’s views on the district

and took part in the monthly citizenship ceremony.

Youth Council member Megan Nelis says the opportunity to speak

up for youth and be heard by the district’s leaders was a highlight,

along with being involved in organising BOOST Spook and

attending amazing workshops and events.

Fellow member Erana Riddell says it also offered an opportunity

to network with other young leaders on issues she was

passionate about.

Mayor Sam Broughton says the Youth Council makes a valuable

difference. “The Youth Council has been an active part of making

Selwyn a great place to live. Anyone who wants to be part of that

and help make cool things happen and support other young people

should put their name forward for consideration.”

Anyone interested can complete an application online. Applications

close Saturday 30 November. For more information or to apply

please visit selwyn.govt.nz/youthcouncil or facebook.com/

selwynyouthcouncil.

Sister City relations built with English class

support in Indonesia

A trip to Indonesia to support an English teaching programme has helped boost Sister City relations

with Selwyn.

Three Selwyn residents took the volunteer trip to the district’s Sister City in North Toraja, Indonesia, in

September, after a request from North Toraja officials. Nick Konijn, Joan Gomez-Douglass and Pam

Reveley – all retired teachers – travelled to the region to work with English teachers to help with their

teaching programme. Preparation for the trip was overseen by the Selwyn Sister City Committee, in

liaison with some officials in Toraja.

Upon arrival, the volunteers were warmly welcomed by the Bupati (Mayor), support personnel and the

staff at their picturesque accommodation. For the first week they worked intensively with 30 enthusiastic,

participant teachers, leading workshops. More communicative and interactive techniques were the main

emphasis. In the second and third weeks, the group visited classes to watch the teachers in action and

help put the new techniques into practice. Feedback at the closing ceremony was extremely positive.

North Toraja hopes to continue this relationship with more exchanges including sending four teachers to

Selwyn in 2020. Selwyn’s Sister City Committee hopes more teachers will volunteer to go to Toraja in 2020.

Major upgrade work to Leeston pipes begins

Long-term upgrades to the Leeston sewerage system will begin next week.

The first stage of a major project to renew the pipes in the township will begin with a six-month

project—due to finish in May—to lay a new pipe on Woodville Street and a section of Leeston Lake

Road heading south-east away from Leeston.

Roadworks will be in place around the work area throughout the project and there is a possibility both

streets will need full road closures at different stages of the work.

The upgrade is the first step in further works to replace pipes in Leeston. The next stage of planned

works will be to upgrade the pipes along Leeston Lake Road to the intersection of High Street and Market

Street. We will provide further updates on the next stages of work when dates for this are confirmed.

Annual Report shows Council

responding to growth

The Council’s 2018/19 Annual Report shows it is making significant

progress in responding to the district’s continuing population and

economic growth.

The report shows Selwyn’s population is over 63,000, housing

continues to grow and economic activity is well ahead of regional

and national averages.

Mayor Sam Broughton says the report outlines the Council’s

investment in services for people, and the preparation for future

capital expenditure over the next 12 months.

“We have spent the last year planning and budgeting for the capital

build of some large projects for our district. This planning will prove

essential to delivering the needs of our community,” he says.

“It’s been rewarding to see new services and facilities completed in

an ongoing way and we need to ensure that our roading, waste and

water services continue to meet expectation.”

During 2018/19 new community centres were opened in West

Melton, Lakeside and Weedons, along with the Lincoln skatepark,

campground improvements, new public toilets, and a park-and-ride

facility in Rolleston.

Work was set to begin on the Selwyn Aquatic Centre extension,

Foster Park indoor courts, Te Ara Ātea and Rolleston town centre

development. Planning is also well under way for new community

centres at Leeston, Prebbleton and Hororata.

The Council resealed 74.2km of road, repaired 5,300 potholes,

graded 10,524km on unsealed roads and constructed 2.2km of

footpath extensions. It carried out water upgrades at Southbridge,

Lake Coleridge, Malvern Hills-Hartleys Road, and Hororata.

Library opening hours were extended and 12,573 residents

attended 141 different events ranging from a teddy bears’ picnic to

Matariki celebrations.

Overall, the Council achieved 86% of its performance targets for

the year.

The Council’s revenue for the year was $166 million compared with

the budget of $146 million and it spent $106 million compared with

the budget of $108 million thanks to reduced borrowing requirements,

the timing of some significant capital projects and higher than

expected revenue from rates and development contributions. The

value of the Council’s assets remained stable at $1.627 billion.

Gymnast makes NZ team for US event

• By Jacob Page

SELWYN ARTISTIC gymnast,

Finlay Jones, will get his

first taste of international

competition at the Valeri Liukin

Tour, in Texas, in January.

The 16-year-old will join six

other gymnasts selected from

clubs around the country and is

the first male artistic gymnast

to represent New Zealand from

the newly-established Affinity

Gymnastics Academy in

Rolleston.

The event will take place

from January 31 to February 3

at the Ford Center at The Star

in Frisco, home of American

football’s Dallas Cowboys.

Finlay competed in

the Gymsports national

championships held at Auckland

last month where he won a gold

medal for the Canterbury team

and individual gold medal on

the pommel horse, his favourite

piece.

“I am thrilled to be given

the opportunity to represent

New Zealand in America and

I’m very busy in the gym with

my coach Aaron (Clutterbuck)

working on skills development.”

It will be the first time the

Lincoln High School year 12

student will compete internationally.

“I’m pretty stoked to be honest.

”My main goal was to do my

best at nationals and put myself

in the best position for this

trip,” Finlay said.

HIGH ACHIEVER: Selwyn gymnast Finlay Jones will represent New Zealand at the Valeri

Liukin Tour in Texas in January.

Finlay will compete across all

apparatus at the event.

“I like the pommel horse

because there is a lot of trial and

error.

“I’ll likely do 20 hours a week

training, so I just juggle everything

else around it.’’

Finlay said he started to

SPORT

compete when he was eightyears-old.

“I enjoy the competitions,

the levels and new routines and

when you get opportunities like

this, it makes the hard work

worthwhile.

“We’ll focus on getting a

good base of skills across all

disciplines and try to build on it

from there.’’

Finlay’s father, Ryan, said

it would be a couple of levels

above where he has competed

recently.

He said he has formed a good

relationship with new Affinity

head coach Aaron Clutterbuck,

Westport trip

for Lincoln HS

cricket team

• By Jacob Page

THE LINCOLN High School year

9 boys cricket team will travel to

Westport later this month to take

on Buller High School in the second

round of the New Zealand junior

secondary schoolboys competition.

The team won all three of their

games in Canterbury Country section

last week.

Cuff said a date for the game

against Buller had not been confirmed.

The winner of that match

will then play the winner of Timaru

Boys’ High School against Roncalli

College.

Lincoln started their campaign

with an 88-run win over Rangiora

where they defended 178 which they

managed off their 35 overs.

Ben Cranfield top-scored with 31

while Louis Honey and Jacob Sharp

added 26.

They added a 91-run win over

Darfield High School thanks to

Honey scoring 98 not out.

He than also added three wickets

with the ball as Darfield’s pursuit of

251 fell short.

Lincoln batted first for a third

time against Rolleston College and

had to overcome a rough start, when

they were 30 for three to eventually

make 208 all out.

Ben Cranfield made 55 and Jacob

Bennett scored 42.

The Lincoln bowlers had little

trouble defending the score,

skittling Rolleston for 33.

Every Day is Open Day

At the heart of our city since the founders laid the

first roads and planted the first trees, St Michael’s

has held dear those early aspirations and visions,

while unleashing our own dreams for a lofty future.

Indeed, for 168 years, St Michael’s has been

educating and nurturing the visionaries and

dreamers who

continue to shape our

city and the world

beyond. For our

young pupils have

limitless potential

to lead exciting and

generous lives, and we

have the responsibility

to educate and inspire

them, to encourage

every child to flourish

in mind, body and

spirit.

St Michael’s is a prep

school for girls and boys in Years

1-8. ‘Prep’ as in preparation for

secondary school, a foundation

for a fine life. For at the heart of St

Michael’s are the essential values of

Christian faith and good citizenship:

respect, integrity, community, faith,

hope and love.

An independent school education

at the primary level is a great gift.

Our classes are small, with year-groups of 20 pupils,

ensuring your child is an individual, well known by

staff and fellow pupils alike.

Traditional foundations in English and Maths are

assured. This academic rigour then underpins

our wider curriculums in History, Geography,

Science and Spanish.

IT literacy is taught,

not assumed, and

computer use is

measured. We like

teaching and talking to

our pupils!

A prep education

offers balance. St

Michael’s cultural and

sports’ programmes

further develop

your child’s

foundation, as

creativity and

problem-solving

come in many

forms. Specialist

art and music

classes are enjoyed

weekly. We have

three choirs,

and most pupils

participate in

instrumental or

speech & drama

lessons with our

ten itinerant staff.

Located in the

heart of the city,

opposite the

new Riverside

Farmers’ Market,

our extended

campus is

spectacular:

the Art Gallery

and Museum,

Tūranga, our new

central library,

and Hagley Park

are frequent

haunts.

Many of our parents now work in the thriving city

centre or Lincoln and Riccarton Road hubs, but

they live city-wide. They comment on the benefit of

knowing their children are in school nearby and the

convenience of popping over for an hour to catch a

performance or watch a race. With the new central

exchange only a block away, senior children arrive

by bus from all corners of the city.

You and your child are warmly welcome to discover

our purposeful, wholehearted and inclusive prep

school. Every day is open day, so please contact

registrar, Bec Hitchcock, to book your personal

tour: 03.379.9790.

Tasty Bites

This amazing banana

bread doesn’t crumble,

stays moist and freezes

well. It’s also the perfect

way to top off gnudi with

asparagus, which makes

for a tasty meal any time

of the day

Banana bread brilliance

Makes 14-15 slices

Ingredients

270g self-raising flour

½ tsp baking soda

1 tsp ground cinnamon

¼ tsp ground cloves

80g butter, melted

140g dark cane sugar

3 large eggs, size 7

1 tsp vanilla extract

450g very ripe bananas, weighed

without skin, mashed (4-5 large

bananas)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 170 deg C

on bake.

Sift the flour, baking soda,

cinnamon and cloves into a large

bowl and stir well to combine.

Set aside.

Put the melted butter, dark

cane sugar, eggs and vanilla

extract into a medium-sized

bowl and beat together for

several minutes on high speed

until thick and creamy.

Reduce the speed and

gradually add the mashed

bananas, beating until well

combined. Make a well in the

centre of the dry ingredients and

stir in the banana mixture a third

at a time, mixing well after each

addition.

Tip into the prepared tin

(either loaf tin or cake tin) and

smooth the top.

Bake until golden brown – it

should be firm to the touch

and a skewer inserted into the

centre should come out clean

(about 50-55 minutes). You may

need to cover the bread with

baking paper for the last 15min

of cooking if it is browning too

much.

Remove from the oven and

cool on a wire rack for about

20min. Slide a knife between

the side of the tin and the bread

to loosen it. Invert the tin on to

a wire rack, remove the baking

paper, turn right way up and

leave to cool.

To serve the loaf, cut it into

thick slices and toast if you wish.

Cuts into 14-15 slices.

To serve as a cake, use ice

with lemon icing or leave plain.

Without the icing, the banana

flavour is more pronounced.

Cuts into 16-20 slices.

Gnudi with asparagus

Serves 4

Ingredients

400g ricotta

2 eggs

1 egg yolk

120g freshly grated parmesan,

plus extra for serving

100g flour

1 tsp salt

freshly ground pepper

semolina flour

2 bunches asparagus, woody

Baking the ultimate banana bread

ends removed and cut into 3cm

pieces

50g butter

4 sprigs of thyme, marjoram or

basil

juice of ½ a lemon,

Directions

In a large bowl, mix together

ricotta, eggs, egg yolk, flour,

seasoning and parmesan cheese.

Mix to combine. Put into a

piping bag with large plain

nozzle.

Dust a tray heavily (5mm)

with semolina and pipe 2cmwide

tubes the length of the tray.

Continue until all the mix is used

and gently roll the tubes in the

semolina.

Chill for as long as possible (an

hour or overnight).

Bring a large pot of salted

water to the boil.

While the water is coming

to the boil, heat a large fry pan

with butter, add the herbs and

asparagus and cook until the

asparagus becomes tender (about

4min).

Cut the gnudi into 4cm

lengths, cook in boiling water.

When it rises to the top (about

3-4min) remove and drain.

Add them to the asparagus,

season, grate over plenty of

parmesan cheese and enjoy

immediately.

Drones

– smart

farming of

the future

Globally, agricultural uses are

expected to see strong uptake of drone

technology in the future says a report

prepared earlier this year for the

Ministry of Transport and Ministry of

Business, Innovation and Employment.

Drones are estimated to be worth

up to $7.9 billion to the economy,

Transport Minister Phil Twyford said

at the July launch of the Government’s

plan for drones.

Phil Twyford said drones will deliver

economic benefits by doing tasks that

are time intensive, expensive, and risky

– such as monitoring crops, inspecting

power lines and helping with emergency

operations.

“New Zealand has an opportunity to

be at the forefront of drone technology

with sectors like forestry, agriculture,

and conservation already harnessing

their abilities.

The versatility of drones is seen as key

to unlocking the practical applications

to improve agricultural processes,

including: soil and field analysis; crop

monitoring and health assessment;

water management; and crop spraying.

Using drones in dairying can also

deliver benefits. These benefits relate

to improved pasture management,

reducing inputs (e.g. fertiliser) and

improving yields. Currently, drones

are not used extensively, and industry

representatives are sceptical about

drones becoming mainstream over the

short term. Overall, the potential benefit

to dairy farming from using drones is

estimated at between $1.3bn and $1.6bn

(over 25 years).

The report says the use of drones is

expected to start on a small scale and

will grow over the foreseeable future

however there is some uncertainty

around New Zealand dairy farmers’

appetite to invest in drones.

New Zealand has large areas with rich

soils and good climate conditions, and

it is not just horticulture, dairying and

forestry that could gain from drones.

Other primary sector activities could

also gain. For example, sheep and beef

farming could also gain from adopting

drone-technologies. Source: www.

Help to significantly

reduce dairy power costs

Zane Wilson

Young from

Energy Efficient

Innovations.

Energy Efficient Innovations was

established to address the emerging

energy and technology related issues

facing New Zealand home owners and

organisations.

Managing Director Zane Wilson

Young has a background in refrigeration

engineering, specialising in energy

efficiency and has designed a new system,

the HRC 700, that significantly reduces

the cost of power for dairy farms.

“The HRC700 is a patented system

engineered to extract

heat from the dairy’s hot

waste wash water before

it goes down the drain,

drastically reducing the

monthly power bill by up

to $1000 based on using

1200L of hot water per

day.”

Developed by

Zane four years ago

the Energy Efficient

Innovations system works

automatically so there

is no need to change

milking procedures and

it can be timed to take

advantage of off-peak

power prices. Heating

times are also reduced with 600L of water

from cold heated to 80 degrees within an

hour.

“Sharemilkers can also take advantage

of this New Zealand-designed system as

it can be moved from farm to farm,” says

Zane.

Zane bases his business on reducing

the consumption and cost of power for

dairy farmers: “Measure the amount of

power you use, reduce your power use,

re-measure and then reduce the cost of

power you do use.”

He uses a national energy tender

gathering dairy farmers together to

provide more clout and reduce their

power costs.

“This has a flow-on effect on their

bottom line which can go back

into the business

or employ more

staff.”

Energy Efficient

Innovations also

specialises in energy

efficient hot water

cylinders for domestic

use, underfloor heating,

Wifi products that

means heat pumps

and air conditioners

can be controlled

from a smartphone

anywhere anytime,

and hot water heat

pumps.

“Our hot water heat pumps

have been specifically designed to

work in the harsh New Zealand climate

and are manufactured to high European

standards,” says Zane.

For more information give Zane a

call at Energy Efficient Innovations on

0800 332 100 and there is also plenty

of information on their website www.

energyefficent.co.nz.

A 3D model of the HRC700

which could save dairy farmers

$1000 a month in power costs.

I help dairy farmers

drastically reduce

their power bills.

My 3-step process saves farmers an

average of $1000 a month.

Dairy sheds use around 28% more electricity than they should,

according to EECA (Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority)

By reducing the consumption and costs of your power we add

much needed profits to your bottom line.

Monochromatic planting is good for shady corners

WHITE FLOWERING plants

are popular with gardeners,

complementing other coloured

blooms and foliage, reflecting

light in shady corners and

providing a wonderful base

for a monochromatic planting

scheme.

Many of our most popular garden

plants are readily available

in white-flowering cultivars,so if

you’re after a splash of white or

an entire white-themed garden,

there are plenty of plants to

choose from.

Many cottage garden favourites

such as climbing and standard

roses, bedding geraniums (pelargoniums)

and ground cover

alyssum are readily available in

white flowering varieties.

Team up with stronger coloured

flowers to create a vibrant

contrast. Consider too popular

white climbers such as white

clematis and trachelospermum

(star jasmine).

Seasonal bulbs such as white

tulips and daffodils are a great

way to herald the spring, reflecting

light and brightening up a

corner of the garden.

Plant bulbs in pots to cheer

up a corner of the patio, or mass

plant them in the border for a

fabulous early seasonal show.

Reliable white flowering shrubs

such as escallonia, viburnum and

abelia look great as single specimen

plants but can also be used

to create a fresh white flowering

hedge.

Other favourite shrubs include

white hydrangeas and white

daphne – this wonderful shrub

is great for providing some

High comfort levels in Honda CRV

CARS ARE always a great

conversation starter.

The other day a former

work colleague came into the

office meeting up with old

acquaintances. We had a bit of a

chat and he asked me what I had

driven lately, I responded, and

then asked what he was driving.

He answered by saying he was in

a company-supplied sport utility

vehicle but was anxious that it

would be replaced soon with a

sedan. He said he liked the SUV

and felt that a traditional sedan

wouldn’t measure up – literally.

That’s part of the reason why

the SUV market is so buoyant,

they are practical, functional and

mostly car-like to drive, it’s easy

to become attached to that type of

transport.

One of the models that kickstarted

the SUV revolution was

Honda’s CRV, that was around

1996, and since then it has gone

through several life-cycles and

facelifts. The CRV has just been

upgraded and there is now the

choice of a seven-seat version

which will excite the traditional

CRV buyer who has occasionally

craved for extra seats.

The CRV lands here in several

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

variations – starting at $33,990 and

ending at $48,990. Interestingly,

the five-seat S model, as evaluated,

gets a 2-litre, single-camshaft,

naturally-aspirated engine, and

while that’s not unusual in an

SUV, what is surprising is that

it is the only model in the range

that doesn’t get Honda’s new

turbocharged 1.5-litre engine that

has gained quite a reputation in

this part of the market.

As opposed to the four-wheeldrive

system of its stablemates,

the entry-level model is also

front-drive only, yet that would

suit me, I’m not big on off-theseal

travel, and if you treat it with

respect it will provide most of

the fundamentals mid-size SUV

buyers are looking for.

As you would expect from the

Honda manufacturing process, the

CRV is clinical in terms of interior

design, comfort and function. The

trim elements are high grade and

the specification level is high.

The CRV S is rated at 113kW

and 189Nm. Honda also claims

a 7.6-litre per 100km (37mpg)

combined cycle fuel usage rating.

That’s a healthy target and is

indicative of the Honda goal of

reducing fuel use. I saw that as

HONDA CRV: Several engine and driveline options.

a benchmark during my time

with the test car, and instead

of exploring power outputs I

concentrated on trying to meet

that average fuel use figure. I

couldn’t, but I did get close at

8.2l/100km (35mpg) with a

6l/100km (47mpg) figure sitting

at the 100km/h legal limit. The

engine is turning over at just

1800rpm at that speed, which isn’t

working hard, and that contributes

to the thrifty way in which it

operates.

Drive is channelled through a

continuously variable automatic

transmission. It allows the engine

to work at the area of maximum

efficiency, it draws on as much

torque as it can so that the engine

isn’t loaded unnecessarily.

Of course, there are drive modes

which the driver can choose for

each given journey. The default

mode is normal, but eco and sport

modes can be selected at will.

As mentioned, I didn’t explore

sport mode other than a short

highway burst, and it will stimulate

the engine so that it feels peaky

and responsive. The opposite

applies in eco mode, the throttle is

numb and dull; however, if you are

prepared for that, fuel savings in

that mode are generous.

I took the test car west, cruising

the long straight roads between

Coalgate and Dunsandel, the

CRV feels lithe yet involving

from behind the wheel. In S

specification it rides on 235/65

x 17in Good Year tyres and they

help contribute to the strong

steering feel and accurate corner

turn-in.

The CRV sits high at almost

1.7m so there is a bit of

gravitational movement over the

suspension, but as a by-product

of having a four-wheel-drive

• Price – Honda CRV S,

$33,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4596mm; width,

1855mm; height, 1679mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1998cc, 113kW,

189Nm, continuously

variable automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.8sec

• Fuel usage – 7.6l/100km

option, even the front-drive CRV

gets a fully independent set-up

underneath, and that has both ride

and handling benefits. Comfort

levels are extraordinarily high,

the suspension willingly absorbs

bumps and ruts, just floating over

uneven surfaces. This is one aspect

that the CRV excels in, it simply

has a magical ride.

Honda has had to work hard

to keep the CRV a desirable

purchase. There’s so much

competition in the mid-size SUV

market, but I’m pleased to report

that it is still a front-runner and

will constantly please those who

relate to all that it represents.

There’s also a model for all

budgets and each has significant

presence. Regular readers will

recall I’m not a big leather trim fan

and the cloth seat covering of the S

model really appeals to me. It’s that

ability to cater for all tastes that

will keep the CRV ticking over the

market for many years to come.

What to ask a real estate agent

Selling a home is a big life decision, both

financially and emotionally. The journey

can be a roller coaster, which is why

finding a licensed real estate agent you feel

comfortable with is so important.

“Remember, you’re looking for the

person who you’re going to trust to sell

what’s likely to be your biggest asset. Their

success (or failure) will have a marked

impact on your new life plan,” says Kevin

Lampen-Smith, chief executive of the Real

Estate Authority (REA).

New Zealand has about 15,000 real estate

agents who help people navigate big-deal

transactions every day.

“The trick is to find the one that will be

best for your situation,” he says.

“If you’re going to get the best out of

your real estate agent – and they’re going

to get the best price and

conditions for your property

– then you need to put the

work in before you sign with

anyone. That means basing

your decision on more

than gut feel or the fact that

their office was easy to park

outside,” he says.

You need someone who

understands what it takes to

sell a property like yours

and a proven track

record to show for it.

You also need to feel

comfortable with

them personally

– if you don’t

find them pleasant to deal with then buyers

may not enjoy the experience either.

If you’re not sure how to get the ball

rolling, ask the agent the following

questions:

- What do you know about my

neighbourhood? How are sales in this area

and who is buying?

- Do you work independently or with

other agents?

- What kind of advertising or marketing

do you use – and which ones will work for

my property? What extra marketing costs

will I have to pay?

- What are your commission rates? Are

you open to negotiation?

- Do you have testimonials or references

from people whose properties you have

sold in the last three months?

- What do you recommend I do to

prepare my home for sale?

- Why should I hire you?

Asking these questions helps you

form a picture of the agent’s experience,

knowledge and how they structure their

business.

“These days you’d expect an agent’s

marketing plan to have an online focus

that includes major property websites and

social media. Find out what the marketing

plan will cost and ask them to explain their

rationale – you’re the one paying for this

service, after all,” Lampen-Smith explains.

Remember that you can negotiate on the

marketing costs and commission – don’t be

afraid to ask the agents if they are interested

in an incentive-based commission, where

they will earn more commission if they sell

your property above a certain price.

Once you’ve found the agent you think

you’d like to work with, check them out

on the Real Estate Authority’s (REA)

online public register, which will tell you

if the agent holds a current licence. This is

important because it’s illegal to carry out

real estate agency work without a licence

and if you deal with an unlicensed person

the REA will be unable to help you if things

go wrong.

When you’ve decided on an agent, the

terms and conditions of your contract will

be set out in an agency agreement that

you both sign. This is a legal document,

so make sure you get advice from a lawyer

and that you understand your rights and

responsibilities.

guidance on buying or selling property,

Tips for first home buyers

Struggling to get on the property ladder

and feeling fed up? You’re not alone. Real

Estate Authority (REA) research has found

that more than half of all first home buyers

– even the ones who successfully buy a

property – find the process stressful and

overwhelming.

“We know it’s hard for people when they’re

trying to buy their first home – it’s a complex

legal process and a huge financial deal,”

says REA chief executive Kevin Lampen-

Smith. “We want to empower them to feel

more confident and in control when they’re

making such a big decision.”

1. SORT OUT YOUR FINANCES

You’ll already know that saving is a big

part of getting ready to buy, but do you

know what else you need to do?

Getting financial advice from a qualified

advisor could be a useful step in your

planning. Owning a property means you’re

responsible for all the maintenance and

repairs – and for paying rates and insurance.

Owning an apartment may also mean you

need to pay body corporate fees. These costs

can be a bit of a shock to the system if you’ve

rented for a long time.

“It’s also a good idea to get conditional

pre-approved finance arranged so you can

move quickly when you spot a property you

really like,” Lampen-Smith says. “Having

conditional pre-approval lets you know the

price range you can buy in and it shows

agents and sellers that you’re a serious buyer.

It’s also crucial if you’re planning to bid on a

property at auction.”

Don’t forget to explore ways that

you might be able to get help from the

Government. There are various forms of

assistance available if you’re a KiwiSaver

member, buying in certain areas, want

to buy a former Housing New Zealand

property or are Māori and want to live on

your ancestral land.

2. NEEDS VS WANTS

Many first home buyers discover a big gap

between what they’d like to buy and what

they can afford when they first start looking.

“Sit down and write a tight list of what

your absolute must-haves are, then work

out what you’re willing to compromise on,”

Lampen-Smith says.

If you’re thinking about pets and children

arriving in the short-to-medium term, think

about how these will change your needs.

Will you need to be near to childcare or

schools? Will you need a fenced property?

“If you’re the sort of person who likes a

good list, we’ve got a useful ‘researching the

property’ checklist on settled.govt.nz that

will help you keep track of all the questions

to ask about a property. This is especially

useful if you’re looking at more than one

property at a time.”

3. DO YOUR HOMEWORK

Don’t let your desperation to find

somewhere blind you to a property’s faults.

“Do as much research as you can about a

property,” Lampen-Smith says. “That means

getting a lawyer on board to make sure all

the paperwork is in order and to help you

understand if there are any issues. We also

recommend getting a qualified building

inspector who has professional indemnity

insurance to prepare a comprehensive

report on the property.”

If you’re worried about paying for this

kind of report before you make an offer (due

to a lack of time or funds), you can make

them a condition of your offer. Remember

that paying for good advice is an investment

that will buy you more peace of mind than a

quick once-over by a mate.

4. RECOGNISE YOUR LIMITS

Buying a ‘doer-upper’ is a Kiwi tradition,

especially for first-home buyers, but we’re

not all blessed with the right skills. Factor

this in before you make an offer on a

‘renovator’s dream’.

“Be honest with yourselves about how

much DIY you can really do, especially if

you’ve got pets and kids,” Lampen-Smith

says.

“Getting professionals in to help will cost

more, but it will also make the process faster.

It may also be better in the long term when it

comes to selling the property if any work has

been done properly with the right consents.”

Can I trust a seller’s building report?

If you’ve been to an open home recently, or

been browsing the ‘for sale’ adverts, you might

have noticed that some sellers put together

information packs for potential buyers. These

sellers will know that researching a property

takes time and money, and they don’t want this

to be a barrier to a successful sale. They believe

that providing information like a LIM (a Land

Information Memorandum from the local

council) and a building inspection report can help

busy people get an offer on the table. This is great

in theory, but you need to tread carefully all the

same.

If, for example, a real estate agent or seller

gives you a LIM for the property, check carefully

when it was prepared. A LIM is a summary of

all the current property information held by the

different departments at a council at the time. It

contains details of council consents for any work

done, how much the rates are and information

on any geographic hazards that might have an

impact on the property, such as subsidence. Bear

in mind that this information can be reasonably

general – the LIM for most houses in Wellington

will say that they’re located in a high wind area,

for example. If the LIM is dated a couple of weeks

ago, it’s safe to assume it’s reasonably up to date.

If it’s dated a year ago, it’s a good idea to make

further enquiries. Getting a LIM costs money in

most areas (prices vary from council to council).

You can also ask to see the property file held by

the council, which holds other information about

a property, like a site map and original house

plans.

Building reports are a bit trickier. Using a

building report provided by the seller (or the

real estate agent working for them) may seem

like an easy option in the short term. However,

if you buy the property and then find problems

with it that cost a significant amount to fix, you’re

not protected by the building report because the

inspector’s contract is with the seller, not you. The

Real Estate Authority (REA) recommends using

an accredited property inspector who complies

with the New Zealand building inspection

standard 4306:2005. Their written report will

identify any current defects as well as highlight

any urgent and long-term maintenance required.

Look for someone who has a good level of

indemnity insurance, as this will protect you if

you buy the property and then find you need to

fix something that wasn’t in the report. Building

inspections do come at a cost, but we think it’s

worth it to be sure that you’re fully aware of what

you’re signing up for. Depending on the age of the

house you’re looking at don’t necessarily expect

a thin report saying there are no issues. Many

wooden houses in New Zealand are over 50 years

old and there will be things the inspector needs

to point out. Make sure you understand what

normal age-related matters are (that may not be

major issues), compared to significant repairs

needed in the short term to fix a problem. The

report you receive should separate these things

out - if it doesn’t, then ask the inspector about the

difference.

If you end up with a report with a lot of

information about the property it doesn’t mean

you should walk away. Instead, see it as giving

you the opportunity to know what you’re buying.

Doing this before you make an offer means you

are fully aware of what the property may need to

have done to it and your offer figure can reflect

that. However, if you don’t feel comfortable

paying for a building report before you make

an offer, you can make a property inspection a

condition of your offer. Like most things in life,

buying a property will go more smoothly if you

put the work in. If a short cut seems too good to

be true, it usually is.

How to sell your

parents’ home

There are lots of tough things about

getting older. One of the most confronting

is realising that the people who raised you

are now in need of help themselves. Selling

the home of your parents, particularly

if they are in poor health, can be a very

fraught time if you’re not prepared for it.

If your parents are getting to the stage

where their much-loved family home is

too much for them, it’s a good idea to start

talking to them about what they want to

do before you start thinking about the

steps you need to take to help them out.

1. LEARN ABOUT THE LEGAL

STUFF You need to find out as much as

you can about your parents’ home and

legal affairs. Do they own the home, or is

it owned by a family trust? They may be

of the era when there was only one name

(usually the man’s) on the title deed – and

it may make things easier down the track

if that is updated. If the property is owned

by a family trust, you’ll need to talk to the

trust’s lawyer about how to proceed.

Are your parents’ wills up to date? Is

there a power of attorney identified in case

they become incapacitated? These can be

uncomfortable conversations to have, but

it’s far better to discuss these issues now.

It may be that your parents haven’t dealt

with a lawyer since they bought the house

– it’s a good idea to get one on the team

now. Under the Anti-Money Laundering

legislation, confirming the identity of

parties is now a more significant step in

property transactions. If your parents

don’t have a passport or other modern

forms of identification you may need to go

through a more involved process with the

lawyer. It’s a good idea to find out about

this earlier in the process so there are no

surprises later on.

2. LEARN ABOUT THE PROPERTY

It can be helpful to get an idea of the

current market value of the home before

you start planning to sell – and planning

for your parents’ next move. You can

research online, pay for a valuation by

a registered property valuer or ask local

real estate agents for a current market

appraisal. Be realistic about what can be

done to get the best price and consider

whether there are time constraints. We

recommend getting a valuation done

by a registered property valuer if you or

another family member are thinking they

might buy the property. This is also useful

if family members have differing views of

its value.

3. LEARN ABOUT THE PROCESS

Do some informal market research

about real estate agents in the area and

arrange to talk to a couple of them about

your parents’ situation. Unless they have

specifically requested otherwise, make sure

your parents are part of this conversation.

Many real estate agents will have had a

lot of experience dealing with people in

similar situations and they will recognise

this is a potentially stressful time.

Licensed real estate agents are obligated

to act in good faith and deal fairly with

both buyers and sellers. This means they

must use their good judgement when

dealing with older people. If neither you

or your siblings live close by, it can be

useful to identify a trusted person who can

accompany your parents to any meetings

with the real estate agent or lawyer. Ask for

all meetings to be documented so you are

all on the same page. This can be especially

useful if you are having to convey

information to other family members. Any

documents requiring signing, such as the

agency or sale and purchase agreement,

should be reviewed by the lawyer first to

ensure your parents are making the best

decisions.

Before you decide to proceed with an

agent, ask them how they propose to

market the property and arrange any

viewings or open homes.

4. LEARN TO TAKE ONE STEP AT A

TIME If there are minor jobs that need to

be done, or major decluttering, work out a

plan to get this done in a way that doesn’t

cause your parents undue stress. Selling a

property is a bit like eating the proverbial

elephant. Do it one little bit at a time and

you’ll get the job done.

Checklist for selling

your home

Accelerating success.

Reach more people - better results faster.

Make small fixes

Inspect your home with a buyer’s eyes,

and correct the flaws that are most

egregious (if affordable) or can be

relatively easily fixed—from repairing

cracks in the walkways to repainting

dingy walls or oiling creaky hinges.

Select the best real estate agent

For a commission, an agent will take care

of many details you may not want to be

bothered with (placing ads, fielding calls,

making signs, etc.) and bring experience

to the table. To find a good one, ask

friends and relatives, then interview

several candidates.

Set a price

A real estate agent will give you a market

analysis free of charge or commitment.

Ask a few to get a broader picture of the

market. Check out

comparable listings

yourself in the real

estate section of

your newspaper or

on websites. Then

decide whether you

want a quick, easy

sale or the highest

possible price.

Clean & declutter

Weed out excess

furniture,

knicknacks, and

“stuff ”—toss it,

donate it, give

it away, sell it at a garage sale, or put

it into storage—so the house seems

more spacious and buyers can imagine

themselves in it.

Stay vigiliant about maintenance

Keep the lawn mowed, shrubs trimmed,

gardens weeded, rooms spotless and

clutter-free.

Ready your home for open days

Hide pocketable valuables, display fresh

flowers or bowls of fruit, bake a batch of

cookies for the homey smell, open the

drapes, keep pets out of sight.

Decide whether to do your own

building inspection

It may save you time, especially with

older homes, to identify—and potentially

solve—problems your buyer’s inspection

will discover later.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Faringdon

on the move

A significant contributor to the growth of Rolleston

is the people who have invested in the town and

developed land for residential use. A major player in

this growth has been Hughes Developments Limited,

the company behind Faringdon.

Hughes Development has a 20-year proven track

record transforming land for residential purposes.

Its first venture in Selwyn was the creation of West

Melton’s Gainsborough, a positive experience which

led to further investment in the district at Faringdon

in Rolleston.

At the heart of the company’s developments is

a desire to provide excellent lifestyle and living

environments; a goal supported by the Selwyn District

Council’s forward planning of infrastructure and

commitment to providing community services.

To date, 1,800 sections have been sold at Faringdon.

Hughes Developments has also built 12 architecturally

designed villas as affordable homes there (part of

its Resource Consent). Faringdon Courts on the

Springston Rolleston Road followed, with 46 lots

sold within a year. The Borough was created at the

same time and only seven of the total 96 lots are still

available there.

Recognising the continual demand for residential

land in Rolleston, Hughes Developments have

continued to open up opportunity for people to locate

there. Title for the latest stage, The Greens is expected

in three to four weeks yet already 64 of the 104

sections have been sold.

With a selection of section

sizes ranging from around 400-

900sqm and a starting price of

$159,900, up to $195,000 for the

largest lots, it is not surprising

that over 60% of the lots at The

Greens are now sold.

“People are attracted to The

Greens as it typifies the quality

of our developments with wider

streets and generous green

space,” says Bruce Harvey, Marketing Director of

Hughes Development Limited.

The Greens has an impressive yet slightly different

and more visual green space layout. There are two

children’s playgrounds and each reserve links to

the next to form integrated cycle and walkways

throughout the development, with The Borough and

beyond, providing easy access to amenities and for

recreational enjoyment.

“We don’t compromise on quality. It’s more than just

the layout. It’s the reserve design, the improvements

and the features we have integrated through all our

residential developments,” adds Bruce.

Wider Faringdon is well-situated, close to much of

what Rolleston offers. Rolleston College, Foster Park

and the Selwyn Aquatic Centre are all on its doorstep

along with other educational and recreational

facilities while the shopping precinct is also within

walking distance.

Faringdon and its many parts are likely

to be showpieces in time to come with

more quality developments planned for the

future.

The Greens information centre is open

Wednesdays through to Sundays from

12noon until 4pm, at 51 Lanner Drive

(opposite Dynes Road). A new showhome

village is currently under construction

at The Borough with five showhomes

already open for viewing. For more

information go to: www.faringdon.co.nz/

sections/the-greens/ or check out their

Facebook page.

Wide streets are a feature of Faringdon.

The Greens will have

integrated cycle/walkways.
