$9000

pay

increase

for mayor

• By Devon Bolger

MAYOR SAM Broughton has

received a pay increase of just over

$9000.

He now gets $136,500, a seven

per cent increase

on his

previous salary

of $127,364.

It comes

on the back

of increases

for district

councillors

after the recent

Sam Broughton

local body

elections.

But unlike district councillors,

whose increases were set by

themselves from a pool of money,

Mr Broughton’s increase was

determined by the Renumeration

Authority, an independent body

which sets the salaries of key office

holders.

“Population is one factor the authority

uses to set the salary, along

with asset size and deprivation,”

he said.

Mr Broughton said growth in

the district does have an impact

on his workload.

I DETOURED to the Lincoln farmers’

market on Saturday with our ageing but

still relatively active lab.

The royal visit had been kept quiet, but

the crowd, many with their dogs, indicated

the cat was already out of the bag.

I found a spot where I might get a decent look at Charles and

Camilla. Then the girl spotted a german shepherd, a sight she

is wary of, and let out a ‘stay away’ warning. It didn’t go unnoticed.

I moved to another spot, but the pastry table was within paw

shot.

Then a James Bond-looking royal security man accidentally

stepped on the girl’s foot. “I’m so sorry, is she okay? I have one

like her,” he said apologetically.

She was fine but clearly it was time to go home.

LINCOLN

Hotel fundraiser

puts Leroy’s beard in jeopardy

In Brief

Christmas

Gift Idea!

www.selwynsounds.co.nz

• By Devon Bolger

LEROY BROWN’S beard is very

much an institution at a certain

drinking establishment in the district.

But it could change very soon.

Mr Brown, a staff member at the

The Famous Grouse in Lincoln, is trying

to help raise $5000 as part of the

Movember campaign. About $2500

has been raised so far.

If that target is met, his beard of three

years will come off.

It has taken a little while,

but as a potential D-Day

looms, it is starting to sink

in he may lose it.

“I am actually a little

frightened to see my own

face to be quite honest. I

haven’t seen my neck in

about three years and I’m

not sure how many chins

I’ve got under there,” said Mr Brown.

Movember, the annual men’s health

fundraiser, was worth it.

“It’s always been a good cause to get

behind and I thought well if my involvement

can help raise more money

then why not?,” he said.

Mr Brown said he has received a lot

of support from the community since

the fundraising campaign began.

“I get asked about it every day. I

think it is good because it’s a big push

‘I haven’t seen

my neck in

about three

years and I’m

not sure how

many chins I’ve

got under there’

– Leroy Brown

• You can donate to The Famous

Grouse Hotel’s Movember

movement in-house or

online at nz.movember.com/

mospace/14036180

for the whole Movember thing you

know and they don’t just ask about the

beard they ask about how the fundraising

is going and how everything is

panning out.

“It just keeps that conversation

going and I think

that’s what it is all about.

“I feel like it is just a

great thing to be a part of

and really important to get

behind.”

The Movember campaign

is an international

movement that focuses on

men’s health issues such as suicide,

anxiety, prostate and testicular

cancers. By 2030, it aims to reduce the

number of men dying prematurely by

25 per cent.

FUNDRAISER: The Famous

Grouse’s Leroy Brown will lose

his beard of three years if the

hotel can raise $5000 for men’s

health.

PLAQUES REPLACED

More than 40 stolen plaques have

been replaced on the graves of

veterans in Springston Cemetery.

About 180 people were at the

cemetery on Saturday for the

unveiling of the 46 new plaques.

They were stolen between late April

and May this year. The plaques

were replaced by Veterans’ Affairs.

INDOOR COURTS UNDER WAY

Work has officially begun

on the building of the Foster

Park indoor courts. An official

groundbreaking ceremony was

held last Wednesday. The $21.5

million building is expected to be

ready for the winter sport season

in 2021. The facility includes

eight courts and a 240m indoor

walking track.

PREBBLETON PLANS

Residents are being asked to have

their say on the plans for a new

reserve development in Prebbleton.

Last year the district council carried

out community consultation and a

concept design has been completed.

Plans include an off-leash dog area

and a bike track. Consultation on

this part of the project closes on

December 13. Go to https://yoursay.

The proposed deputy mayor’s

Mr Broughton’s salary is excluded

Mr Broughton said the increase

Nora Guise’s

aclandpark.co.nz

0800 ACLAND

Canterbury’s fastest selling

new subdivision

chance for a cure begins

• By Devon Bolger

SIX-YEAR-OLD Nora Guise has

begun the treatment that will

potentially save her life.

The Rolleston girl was

diagnosed with Hepatoblastoma,

a rare cancer of the liver, that was

also found to be in her lungs.

She exhausted all of the

curative treatments available in

New Zealand but was accepted

into a CAR-T cell trial in the

United States that could be her

last chance fo a cure.

She is recovering after the

cells were implanted at Texas

Children’s Hospital last week.

THey were made from Nora’s

blood that was taken during her

first trip to the United States last

month.

Her mother, Elyse Guise, said

Nora is doing very well and there

have been no side effects since

the cells went in.

“My heart was beating quite fast

and my hands were shaking as

the infusion happened. It was all

just fear of the unknown. This

has now disappeared and I feel a

huge relief,” she said.

The family has raised the

$210,000 needed for the

treatment, with help from

Clearview School and the

community.

Mrs Guise said they are truly

grateful and humbled.

The treatment works by

starting with lymphodepleting

chemotherapy which lowers the

white blood cell count.

When the T cells are inserted

they attack the cancer cells and

boost the white cell count back

up.

The family will stay in Houston

until December 11 while

Nora has weekly appointments at

the hospital.

“We have to still be cautious

Hospital

treatment. ​

of any complications. A fever or

illness would mean a trip to the

emergency room,” Mrs Guise said.

Nora has gone through nine

rounds of chemotherapy and

three surgeries which included

removing 60 per cent of her liver,

her gallbladder and half of one

lung.

The chemotherapy has caused

permanent

hearing loss

and impacted

her ability to

hear highfrequency

sounds to

the point she

must wear

hearing aids.

“Nora can’t

hear things

Nora Guise like birds and

whistles. She

struggles day to day with S and P

and F sounds unless she has her

hearing aids,” said Mrs Guise.

Nora’s liver remains cancerfree

but the disease in her lungs

is proving to be stubborn.

She has now exhausted all of

the curative treatments available

in New Zealand but has been

accepted into a CAR-T cell trial

in Texas which is her last chance

for a cure.

It was found the likely cause of

Nora’s cancer was a TP53 gene

mutation.

This now makes her

susceptible to a large number of

cancers at a much higher risk.

Royal visit

Lincoln’s worst kept secret: Royals

FOUR MONTHS ago Gary

Miller was told VIPs would

attend the Lincoln Farmers and

Craft Market on Saturday.

Who they were was a mystery.

In September Mr Miller, who

is chairman of the market, was

told by authorities it was Prince

Charles and Duchess Camilla

but it still had to be kept under

wraps.

But it appears many people in

Lincoln knew exactly who was

going to turn up – the market was

crowded on Saturday morning

and most were there to see the

Royals.

The royal couple were greeted

at the market by Mayor Sam

Broughton, his wife Liz and their

daughter Elliott.

It was a once in a lifetime

experience for the Lincoln Girl

Guides who got to meet the

royals.

There were seven girls and

four leaders at the market

when Prince Charles and

Duchess Camilla showed up on

Saturday.

Member Stacey Skill said the

girls were quite excited once they

found out they were there.

“They had lots of questions

about royal etiquette and were

quite excited about being able to

meet them and shake their hands

and afterwards they said that

Prince Charles had a very firm

handshake,” she said.

Mr Miller said it was a great

day and fantastic to see the big

crowd that turned out to meet

the Prince and Duchess of Cornwall.

Just after the Royals arrived

a nearby fire station’s siren was

activated. But there was nothing

to be alarmed about.

Lincoln chief fire officer Jeremy

Greenwood said the brigade was

responding to a vehicle crash in

Little River.

COMMUNITY: A big crowd attended the Lincoln Farmers and

Craft Market on Saturday, Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla

paid a surprise visit. Shelley Bakker’s Recycle Recreate stall was

one of the many they stopped at.

Residents reject Wards Rd report

• By Devon Bolger

A DARFIELD resident battling

the district council over the road

he lives on says a report into

potholes is misleading.

Grant Prescott represents 14

residents on Wards Rd, who have

been lobbying for the road to be

sealed.

They say it is in poor condition.

But a district council report

into the road says its condition

is “average” and there were no

potholes.

Mr Prescott says that statement

and data is “misleading”

and “incorrect.”

“I am absolutely shocked and

appalled at the comments in it. It

appears to be a selective partial

report which is abhorrent,” he

said.

“The report says there are no

potholes, this is absolute rubbish.

I have just walked past 2144

Wards Rd and we have a line of

potholes approximately 25m in

length, one after another.”

Selwyn Times asked the district

council to respond to Mr

Prescott’s claims.

Team leader transportation

Mark Chamberlain said the information

in the report was from

an assessment that was carried

out by an experienced contractor

in September.

“On the day he assessed the

road he did not note any potholes.

On another day there may

have been potholes, because of

the changing of the condition

REJECT: A soak hole Mr Prescott says is placed incorrectly and

dangerous. ​

of unsealed roads, which is why

we encourage people to let the

council know about potholes

when they appear so we can get

them fixed,” he said.

Mr Prescott said there was also

no mention in the report of what

he says are dangerous soak holes.

Mr Chamberlain said they

are aware of the soak holes

positioned at the edge of the

carriageway and will work with

the contractor to have new ones

located further away.

Mr Prescott said he also takes

issue with the traffic counts in

the report.

“They say 79 vehicles used the

road in March this year. I can

prove this is complete and utter

rubbish as we have a minimum

of 40 residential movements a

day, and that is just residents.”

Mr Prescott has laid a formal

complaint with the district council

over the report.

He says if no resolution is

reached he will be contacting the

Ombudsman.

$1.2 million cost to strengthen Leeston building

• By Devon Bolger

SEISMIC strengthening and

roofing work of the earthquakeprone

Leeston Library and

Medical Centre is expected to

cost $1.2 million.

A recent engineering report has

shown parts of the building are

below 34 per cent of the required

standards of the building code.

A district council report said

the engineering report was done

as part of the process of replacing/

renewing the roof of the building.

The work has now been

brought forward to the 2020/21

financial year.

A cost assessment has been

completed for the work needed

on the building now.

It includes an allowance by the

property management for enhancements

to the building that

would improve it for tenants.

It also includes cladding replacement

which the report says:

“it would be sensible to consider.”

Seismic strengthening and roof

replacement - $1,128,000

Cladding replacement - $777,000

Enhancements for tenants -

$250,000

General contingency - $250,000

Total cost estimate - $2,402,000

District council staff will now

report back on possible options

for the project by April 28.

The building has not been

closed as there is no urgent risk

to the safety of people using it.

Your First Choice for delivering outstanding service to

our customers and community through highly valued and skilled staff

Markham Junction in Rolleston and the

Torlesse Estate in Darfield are two of the

recent civil contracting projects taken on

by Ashburton Contracting Limited. Above

Manager) and Steve Adam (Civil Operations

& Business Development Manager).

“There are no hidden

costs and all their

staff take personal

ownership and pride

in what they do.”

asy to deal with’ and ‘nothing is too much

‘Etrouble’ is just a couple of comments from

clients of Ashburton Contracting Limited (ACL).

Mr JP Singh, developer of the Tennyson Street

Markham Junction development, says ACL is a

highly professional company with an excellent

combination of people who have the right skills

and work ethic.

ACL is currently working on Mr Singh’s second

project, a subdivision in East Maddison’s Road,

creating the entire horizontal infrastructure

needed including section platforms, water, sewer,

roading, lighting and footpaths.

‘The company is upfront with a straight up and

down approach; there are no hidden costs and all

their staff take personal ownership and pride in

what they do,’ says Mr Singh. ACL is due to start

on stage two of Mr Singh’s Markham Junction

development in Tennyson Street.

Roger Crozier, developer of the Torlesse Estate,

echoes Mr Singh’s sentiments. ‘Ashburton

Contracting Limited was our main contractor

for the subdivision including removing trees and

sealing 2km of road leading to the entranceway.

As with many projects on this scale, there can be

things unforeseen but if there were any issues, we

just sat down together and talked them through.’

Mr Crozier, like Mr Singh, says they were happy

with the finished product and give the company

full marks for their expertise and quality service.

Ashburton Contracting Limited specialises in

civil contracting and construction and now has

an office in the Rolleston IZone. The company

has a number of projects on the go around the

Rolleston/Christchurch area including laying

the pipework for Kraft Heinz-Wattie’s NZ Ltd at

Hornby.

ACL Civil Operations and Business

Development manager Steve Adam says, ‘we

do the unglamorous stuff when it comes to civil

contracting. We have the capabilities to take

on the largest development or the smallest like

putting in a driveway and offer a multi-skilled

team that produces quality results for our clients.’

Other high profile projects in the Selwyn

District include The Warehouse South Island

Distribution Centre Extension, the new Darfield

4 Square, Markham Junction Commercial

development, the Prebbleton Main trunk

Sewer upgrade to rural and urban residential

subdivisions, carparks, footpaths, driveways and

entranceways, rural track and laneways work.

Mr Adam says ACL has become the ‘people’s

best choice’ and with over 120 staff and a modern

fleet of excavators, trucks, graders, loaders and

specialised plant as well as light vehicles and

construction equipment, the company is well set

up for future developments in the area.

Dancer excited for Arts Centre

residency programme

A DANCER who grew up in

Rolleston, has been chosen to

create her own dance work at The

Arts Centre.

Olivia

O’Brien, 21,

who trained at

the Garmonsway

School

of Dance and

Hagley Dance

Company has

Olivia O’Brien ​

been the first

to be selected

for the 2019

DANZ Dance Residency.

The programme is being delivered

for the first time in city by

DANZ in partnership with The

Arts Centre and Movement Art

Practice.

O’Brien said the residency is

a chance for her as a choreographer

to grow and develop her

skills as a dance artist.

“The residency has given me

time and space to experiment

with ideas and processes to see

how I create as freelancer,” she

said.

DANZ executive director Sheryl

Lowe said The Arts Centre was

an exciting place to host its third

dance residency.

EXCITED: Olivia O’Brien (right) has been chosen to create her

own dance work at The Arts Centre.

“We hope this residency will

contribute to the reinvigoration

of the arts and dance community

in Christchurch and help to

build on the wonderful progress

already being made.”

In an exciting new collaboration

between DANZ, The Arts

Centre and Movement Art Practice,

the residency will be hosted

over two weeks in Christchurch.

The residency is set to take

place in alignment with the

Ōtautahi Tiny Performance

Festival on November 30 curated

by Movement Art Practice.

The DANZ Dance Residency is

aimed at an independent dance

artist seeking to develop their

practice and is part of DANZ’s

strategy to further expand its

support to new graduates in the

professional dance sector.

O’Brien will be based at The

Arts Centre until November 29

and will have the opportunity to

work with assigned dancers and

to have access to a dance mentor

throughout the two-week period

of the residency.

At the end of the residency,

she will present the work she

has created at a showing at the

festival. She will also facilitate a

workshop at The Arts Centre.

O’Brien is in her final year at

Unitec in the Bachelor of Performing

and Screen Arts (Contemporary

Dance) in Auckland.

“I am excited for the opportunity

to return to my hometown,

Christchurch, for this residency

to develop my practice. For me,

this residency will allow me to

come home and re-establish old

connections and relationships”,

she said.

O’Brien residency project,

From Residence, will be developed

as a duet on her residency

dancers, and will explore her

interest in making work that

pushes boundaries, provoking

and subverting expectations

through well crafted, dynamic

and virtuosic movement.

Dangerous

dogs double

in numbers

• By Devon Bolger

THE NUMBER of registered dogs

in the district has reached more

than 14,000.

The district council’s registration

database now includes 14,407

dogs for the period ending in

June. That is 883 more than last

year’s total of 13,524.

The number of dogs that have

been classified as dangerous has

increased by seven in the last year,

bringing the total register to 14.

All were classified as dangerous

because of the owner admitting so

in writing.

Two more dogs were classified

as menacing in the last year, taking

the total number to 78.

The number of them classified

menacing by deed was 53, 16 for

their breed and nine for breed

characteristics.

Meanwhile, the district council

received 1582 complaints relating

to dogs barking, wandering, fouling,

rushing, attacks on domestic

animals and unregistered dogs.

There were 100 complaints

about attacks on people.

Also in the last year, the district

council issued 535 infringement

notices for breaches against the

Dog Control Act.

AS I OPENED up the

columns folder on my

computer to write this, a

number stuck out from the

bottom of the folder – fifty

one.

With these words you’re

reading right now, it has

jumped up to the big 52 – a

full year of columns.

Which also means a full

365 days of being a stay-athome

parent (as of Tuesday)

and spending almost

every waking hour with

Vittoria. We’ve swam, explored,

played, sang, grown

teeth (well, one of us did)

and travelled overseas and

around Canterbury.

She’s changed so much

over that time, in so many

wonderful ways.

The very first Vittoria &

Matt column I wrote was

about her first steps – and

rueing that they were away

from me.

She definitely still uses

her legs to power herself

away from me (mostly with

me trailing behind going

“no, no, not there, that’s

dangerous/dirty. Oh bloody

heck’’), but she’s way faster

now.

There’s plenty of walking

and running towards me

to of course, but running

is not the only milestone

we’ve hit this year.

GROWING UP: Vittoria (left) at the beginning of

these columns and a year down the track.

Looking back on a year

as full-time parent

TAI TAPU’S Rico

Mannall has been named

runner-up in the Young

Horticulturist of the Year

competition.

Mr Mannall, 28, was

representing the New

Zealand plant producers

category.

The competition celebrates

excellence in people

aged under 30 who are employed

in the horticulture

industry. The winners were

announced at a gala in

Auckland last week.

Hearing the odd word

come out, or seeing her

understand the things I

say still give me the wee

heart-swell of pride. Much

as watching her try to

cuddle the cats, her love of

dancing and music or the

beginnings of her playing

pretend.

Last week she took her

favourite little soft-toy

buddy Dragon and made

him ride her rockinghorse.

She even held the toy’s arms

to the handles and made

“wheee” sounds.

We’ve had the not so

good times too. Like her

getting pneumonia (just

before we left for Italy) or

the discovery of tantrums.

Near the start of this

year I did a column on

how Vittoria had pushed

another kid and how I had

the conundrum of what to

do in that situation.

I used the word bully in

that column. Believe me,

that did not endear me to

the wife at all.

But over the last 12

months I’ve also grown in

VITTORIA

& Matt

my confidence as a parent.

Learned what to actually

worry about, what behaviour

to curb and how to

respond to the tantrums

and grumps.

I’ve also learned how to

play again and how to (I

hope) stoke Vittoria’s interest

in the world around her.

The way she says “wow”

all the time at the things

she sees on our walks and

drives gives me hope.

All and all, this has been

a truly unique and rewarding

experience that I may

never get the chance to

have again. While I might

not be heading back to

work in the immediate

future, I very much doubt

I’ll be still doing this next

November.

So happy anniversary

readers, I hope you’ve enjoyed

the last 52 columns

– including this one.

Headaches don’t have to be suffered in silence

Most people experience a headache

now and again but, although they

are common, they do not have to be

part of your daily life.

Headaches can be caused by

many different conditions and

includes pain both in the head and

neck. The brain tissue itself is not

sensitive to pain as it lacks pain

receptors. Rather, the pain is caused

by disturbance of pain-sensitive

structures around the brain.

Studies have shown that roughly

a third of all people suffer from

headaches equaling as many as 45

million people suffering from chronic

or severe headaches that seriously

interfere with their lives.

Headaches vary in intensity and have

different symptoms including pain in

the head, visual impairment (blurred

vision), nausea and vomiting, hearing

impairment, confusion, discomfort

and irritability.

Headaches can be caused by a

number of different reasons with

spinal misalignments involved in

up to 80% of all headaches. Other

reasons include certain foods,

toxic fumes, preservatives and

alcohol are all contributing factors

to headaches.

Tension headaches are the most

common type of headache for both

adults and children. Trigger points

include lack of sleep, emotional

tension at home, work or school,

second-hand cigarette smoke,

skipped meals, poor nutrition, eye

strain and bright lights.

How Chiropractic care helps

Your spine protects your nervous

system, which starts with the brain

and becomes the spinal cord. When

the vertebrae in your neck can not

move properly, this irritates or puts

pressure on the nerves in that area,

causing headaches.

Chiropractic care addresses the

cause of many types of headaches

so can remove or dramatically

reduce both how often headaches

occur and how long they last. A New

Zealand Government study finding

the majority of people who suffered

from spinal misalignments had their

headache relies or their condition

improved through Chiropractic care.

The reason Chiropractic care

can work is because headaches

are usually due to what is called

subluxations in the spine.

Chiropractors can perform

chiropractic adjustments to remove

pressure on the nerves, which then

also helps to improve nerve function.

In today’s fast paced world, many

people think headaches are a

normal ailment that they just have

to put up with so next time you

have a headache, call Southern

Chiropractic at 03 322 1432.

Relief is only a phone call away.

Selwyn Sounds

Zed reforms for the love of it

• By Matt Slaughter

WHEN ZED formed in the late

1990s, they were fresh-faced

teenagers from Cashmere High

School.

The band’s transition from

the classroom to reaching

international audiences and

being managed by New Zealand

music legend Ray Columbus

happened quickly. Their first album

Silencer debuted at number

one on the New Zealand album

charts in 2000 and included hit

singles Renegade Fighter and

Glorafilia.

Zed lead singer and guitarist

Nathan King said highlights

of their young career included

opening for Robbie Williams

and Coldplay and touring

Europe.

Now, fans who want to take

a trip down memory lane and

hear a set filled with Kiwi

classics can do so when Zed

reunites after 15 years to play

Selwyn Sounds on March 7.

Lead singer Nathan King said

the band is looking forward to

playing in front of fans whose

lives may have been impacted by

their music.

“We love bringing a show

which involves the crowd. We

will be playing all the hits but

also there [will be] some surprises

there and there are some

nods to our heroes in terms of a

cover or two that we do which

I think people will love. We’re

just very conscious as a band,

we were a big part of a lot of

people’s lives growing up.”

The Selwyn Sounds crowd

will be treated to Zed’s original

line up of King, fellow Cashmere

High old boys Ben Campbell

and Adrian Palmer and

the band’s only non-Cashmere

connection Andy Lynch.

King said the band had developed

musically in the years

the members had been apart

and they are looking forward to

showing this off.

“Musically, I think we’ve all

developed and matured over the

years. We got together for our

comeback shows that we had in

September and as the frontman

with essentially three guys playing

with me, I was blown away

by the calibre of musicianship

ROCKERS:

Zed members

Ben Campbell,

Adrian Palmer,

Nathan King

and Andy Lynch

will perform at

Selwyn Sounds

on March 7.

that was still there and still evident

after all these years.”

King said the pressure on Zed

in its early days to make a living

is gone. Himself and Lynch

now run Auckland-based music

studio Hum Studios, Campbell

owns Akaroa restaurant Ma

Maison and Palmer is theowner

of Addington Coffee

Co-op.

Zed will play Selwyn Sounds

purely for the love of it, said

King.

Pop-rock

melodies

from Parsons

• By Matt Slaughter

JED PARSONS will be taking

his pop-rock melodies to Selwyn

Sounds.

The former Lincoln High School

student will be performing songs

from his album Midnight Feast,

which was nominated for an award

at the Taite Music Prize ceremony

earlier this year.

Parsons said he and his band

members Moses Robbins and

Matt Andrews will play a diverse,

energetic set for the Selwyn Sounds

crowd.

“You’ll expect anything from sort

of very mellow, acoustic folk songs,

right through to pretty ridiculous

and silly indie rock songs,’’ he said.

“I think we’ll definitely look

to kick the day off with a bang

because we’re one of the first acts to

play on the day. We’ll be hopefully

playing exactly what every single

person in the crowd wants to hear.”

Parsons said he is looking

forward to performing in the area

where he grew up in front of familiar

faces.

“Maybe they [the crowd] might

find it quite entertaining to see

how I’ve developed since being an

annoying little child hogging the

limelight in school productions.”

Building begins on

Foster Park Indoor Courts

Building work has begun on the Foster Park Indoor Courts after Mayor Sam Broughton broke ground.

The ceremony last week marked the halfway point in a journey to get the sport and event facility

built, Sam said.

“Three years ago the Council committed to build some significant social infrastructure that the

community had been asking for, including the indoor courts. It’s exciting to be at this point of

providing an excellent sports facility along with the other developments we’ve made at this park,

and for the district.”

He thanked contractors Apollo Projects for their innovative design and construction approach. It

was a source of pride that the design allowed the courts to be built with significantly more floor

space and at a cheaper cost to similar new or soon to be built facilities, he said.

The facility includes eight courts and a 240 metre indoor walking track on the mezzanine level,

plus changing rooms and public toilets servicing the Foster Park fields. It will be able to host a

range of events. The courts are expected to be ready for use by the winter sport season 2021.

Building app makes consents easier

Builders can now book inspections for building consents and view reports on a portable device at any

time, following recent enhancements to the Council’s consent system.

The Council is using the AlphaOne Builders App to provide the

industry with a streamlined way to book inspections and view

inspection reports. People can also check the status of their

consent and any issues that need addressing.

The app is used by a number of New Zealand councils and is

tailored to the requirements of each authority. Council Building

Team Operations Leader Jenny Lilley says the app aims to free

up builders and project managers’ time on site and speed up the

inspection booking process.

“It’s another tool that can be used to their advantage and make the

process simpler.”

The AlphaOne Builders App is available through the Apple App

Store and Google Play Store. For more information companies can

contact bca@selwyn.govt.nz.

The world calling Selwyn home

People from around the world are choosing to call Selwyn home

and become new Kiwi citizens here.

Since February last year, 559 people of 56 different nationalities

have taken the oath of allegiance at the Council’s monthly

citizenship ceremony.

British citizens were the most common taking up New Zealand

nationality, providing 132 new citizens, followed by South Africa

(91), India (51) and the Philippines (39). However, the figures show

people coming here from across the globe including Argentina,

Cambodia, Kenya, Iceland, Uzbekistan and Zambia.

People from so many different

countries choosing to move

here is a sign of what a good place

Selwyn is to live and a boost

for the district, Council Community

Services Group Manager

Denise Kidd says.

“We’re delighted to see so many

people feel welcomed and have found

a new place here. New migrants,

wherever they are from, bring skills

and stories that enrich us and help us

grow as a community.”

Tonnes taken at farm waste day

Almost 7000 kg of farm waste was safely disposed of through a

Council programme with Agrecovery Rural Recycling.

The Agrecovery Rural Recycling day in Ellesmere offered farmers and

growers the opportunity to safely dispose of a variety of farm waste.

Over 60 people dropped off 6915 kg of farm waste, including 2705

kg of chemicals that will be safely treated and disposed of, 1500 kg

of chemical containers and over 1000 kg of fertiliser bags.

Tom Macartney from Tai Tapu said the event was very helpful and

he was very happy with the organisation.

The day was part of a Rural Waste Minimisation Project to tackle

barriers to recycling for New Zealand’s rural communities. It was

good to see Selwyn farmers seize the opportunity, Council Solid

Waste Manager Andrew Boyd says.

“The turnout and quantities collected really showed the value of

the day. We’ve indicated that the district would be keen to be

involved in any future Rural Recycling events, with the ultimate aim

to have it annually.”

Coalgate road legalisation – have your say

The Council has identified a number of undedicated roads in Coalgate township, which it intends to

legalise. These undedicated roads are Queen Street, Station Road, High Street, Wing Street, King

Street, James Street and unnamed roads intersecting Homebush Road and Bridge Street. A plan of the

undedicated roads is available at Darfield Library, online at selwyn.govt.nz/coalgateroads, or on request.

Without the status of a road, some properties adjoining the undedicated roads have no legal road

access and future development rights cannot be confirmed.

The parcels of land are shown as roads on survey plans, but were not legally dedicated at the time of the

original subdivisions in 1872–1906 and are still held in the original certificates of title and owned by the

original owners, George Roberts, Joseph Shirley Buxton and William Attwood who are long since deceased.

Correcting this historic oversight will cater for transport, property access and development

requirements. The Council will acquire the land using the Public Works Act 1981.

The Council proposes some of the undedicated roads would be used to develop walking and cycling

links and connections to the new Coalgate to Glentunnel pathway.

The Council recognises that use or occupation of the undedicated roads by some Coalgate property

owners has occurred over time and recognises the need to discuss what options may be available to

resolve these situations.

The Property Group Limited has been engaged by the Council to legalise these sections of road.

If you have any questions or concerns about this proposal, please complete a submission at

selwyn.govt.nz/coalgateroads or contact Emma Baker, The Property Group Limited, PO Box 7240,

Christchurch 8240 or 03 363 5625.

On the roads this week

High Street in Leeston will be closed from 5–10.30pm on Friday 6

December for the Leeston Christmas Parade. A detour will be in

place. Footpath and drainage work is taking place on Leeston Road,

Doyleston. Traffic management will be in place. Footpath construction

will be taking place in Glentunnel on SH77 and in Darfield on South

Terrace. These footpaths will be closed during construction.

CONTINUING EDUCATION

SELWYN TIMES

From computer

novice to digital

whizz

A simple desire to become more

confident using computers has opened up

a world of possibilities for Thomas King, a

co-director of a logistics business.

“The world is rapidly changing and to

keep pace with it, having some confidence

and competence in computing is crucial,”

he says. “I realised that I’d have to embrace

this scary but exciting new tech-driven

world sooner or later, and now here I am

today, loving what I once feared.”

Thomas got the skills he was looking

for at Ara Connect, a network of

community hubs operated by Ara Institute

of Canterbury which

offer free, non-assessed

computing courses for

anyone wanting to gain

skills and confidence

using digital technology.

Thomas says the tutors

at Ara Connect made

learning an enjoyable

experience and were

very supportive. “I felt

so inspired during my

journey. The tutors were

very attentive and always

eager to assist. They want

you to succeed and they

encourage you to push

your boundaries without ever throwing

you in the deep end.”

His advice for anyone else considering

the computing courses at Ara Connect

is to just go for it. “Knowing how to use

computers in a way that delivers results can

make life so much easier, especially in the

world of business. I certainly wish I’d taken

courses like these two decades ago. My

advice is to pluck up the courage and just

go for it.”

Information about Ara Connect

courses is available at ara.ac.nz or by

calling 0800 24 24 76.

TALENT: Jaden Ransley enters his fourth season in Toyota 86s and will start as a

title favourite in the 2019-2020 Best Bars Toyota 86 Championship.

Ransley to have another

crack at Toyota 86 title

SPORT

ROLLESTON’S Toyota 86

racer Jaden Ransley has

confirmed he will run in

this season’s championship,

starting as one of the title

favourites.

It will be the 17-yearold’s

fourth Toyota 86

season and follows an

impressive season in the

Australian championship

where he won a race and

was almost always at the

sharp end of the field, scoring

numerous top ten and

top five finishes.

Although he is making

no secret of the fact that

he feels ready to move up

to faster racing categories

such as the New Zealand or

Australian TCR series, the

former KartSport national

champion will still start the

season as one of the firm

favourites for the title in his

Neale Motorsport run car.

Ransley is particularly

interested in the championship

prize pool this year,

which includes a Toyota 86

car for the overall winner.

“Yes, I am definitely

looking forward to coming

back and having

another crack at the 86

series, which looks very

competitive again this year

and I am super keen to win

the prize car,” he said.

“We looked over other

classes to race in throughout

New Zealand and Australia

and we’ve figured the

86 series would be the best

category to keep my bum

in the seat until hopefully

something else arises along

the lines of TCR in New

Zealand or Australia.

“It’s extremely competitive

and difficult to win in,

so you do have to be on

your game as a driver to be

competitive in it, let alone

win in it.”

His championship campaign

begins in Pukekohe

before heading to the South

Island for rounds at Highlands

Motorsport Park and

Invercargill’s Teretonga

Park.

It then moves to the

North Island for the New

Zealand Grand Prix meeting

at Manfeild – Circuit

Chris Amon and then

onto Hampton Downs

before concluding with a

non-championship race

weekend at the Virgin

Australia Supercars event

at Pukekohe Park in April.

West Melton continue strong

start to the tennis season

• By Jacob Page

WEST MELTON’S positive

start to the Canterbury Country

tennis season continued with a

15-5 win over Kirwee-Springston

to start round two, at Kirwee, on

Saturday.

They dominated the contest

winning 11 of the 16 matches.

West Melton’s victory came on

the back of taking the Ian Jones

Trophy for winning round one of

the competition.

In the other two fixtures,

Rolleston-Killinchy and Tai Tapu

were locked at eight wins each

with Tai Tapu winning by three

games, at Rolleston.

Prebbleton-Lincoln easily

accounted for Fernside 16-0, at

Fernside.

West Melton 16-year-old and

No 1 Luke Tanner remained unbeaten

in singles so far this year.

It was Tai Tapu’s women who

pulled them back into their

contest with Rolleston-Killinchy

with Pieta Aitken and Jo Christie

both unbeaten after the Rolleston-Killinchy

men had won three

of the four singles games.

Week two will see Tai Tapu

host Prebbleton-Lincoln, Kirwee-

Springston welcome Fernside to

Kirwee and Rolleston-Killinchy

travel to West Melton.

The competition is likely to run

through to March.

There will be a weekend break

when senior representatives

compete for the Browning Shield

at Wilding Park on February 22

and 23.

The competition sees teams

from Ellesmere, Mid Canterbury,

North Canterbury and Malvern

compete for the coveted piece of

silverware.

The shield was won by Mid

Canterbury last year.

Ellesmere Tennis president

Jason McKenzie said it was important

for the game in the area

that both Saturday tennis and the

representative fixtures remained

in place despite occasional lack of

playing numbers.

“The standard of the Browning

Shield is still very high and

Canterbury Tennis have been accommodating

in freeing up their

schedule to allow our top players

to compete in it.”

Mr McKenzie said it was

important the pathway for upand-coming

Country players was

maintained through Saturday

tennis.

The Ellesmere junior tennis

team beat North Canterbury by

winning three of the four age

grades.

Ellesmere won the 10s eight sets

to six, the 14s 152 games to 120 and

the 16s 10 matches to six.

North Canterbury won the 12s

nine matches to seven.

Title-holders in trouble

• By Jacob Page

LEESTON-Southbridge’s defence

of the Canterbury Country

premier twenty20 cricket title is

in early trouble after two losses

on Saturday.

With all teams missing the

Canterbury Country representative

players who were playing

Otago A, both Southbrook and

Sefton were able to take advantage

to topple the competition

favourites.

Southbrook and Weedons were

the two teams who won both

matches on Saturday.

Southbrook won their encounter

by five wickets while Sefton

won by one run.

Thirty-seven from Luan Blom

helped Southbrook to 118 for

nine, which proved too much for

Leeston-Southbridge who could

only muster 88 for six in reply.

Sefton were able to defend 112

for seven by the narrowest of

margins with Leeston-Southbridge’s

Kirk Doyle run out for a

duck off the final ball.

Leeston-Southbridge captain

Toby Doyle said with the team

missing eight players from their

previous match against Darfield,

they struggled for momentum

with the bat in particular.

Southbrook won both their

games, as they added a win over

Oxford in their second round

fixture.

Weedons also went two for

BATTING will be

Canterbury Country’s

wickets and controlling the

Saturday and Sunday.

Canterbury Country

campaign against Buller in

Westport on December 8

Canterbury Country

coach Michael Sharpe said

his team did not make the

most of the opportunities

created with the bat but

believed the preparation

was excellent ahead of the

Hawke Cup campaign,

“We had guys make

starts, but we just didn’t

carry on with it or get the

big contributions we were

looking for.

“I thought we bowled

well at times on a flat track

but we just didn’t get the

runs we needed.’’

Tough weekend for karter

• By Jacob Page

LINCOLN KARTER Jacob

Douglas had lady luck desert

him at the USA Super Nationals

in Las Vegas last weekend.

The 14-year-old was considered

one of the favourites before

the weekend, but qualifying

issues and a disqualification

hampered his charge.

The event, in its 23rd year, is

the most prestigious of its kind

in North America.

Jacob drove for the factory

Aluminos team in two classes,

KA100 and X30 junior classes.

The X30 started in rough

fashion with rain falling on the

circuit making practice challenging.

Teams and drivers had to

choose between wets or slicks

for qualifying and Douglas and

his team chose wet tyres.

Unfortunately, a delay on the

grid meant the track had time

to dry and with the extra grip

no longer needed, Jacob had to

settle for 35th on the grid for the

heats.

He consistently made his way

through half the field in the

three heats but was disqualified

in the third heat which ended

his chances of making the final.

Qualifying proved just as

difficult in the KA100 where he

managed 29th out of 46 cars but

the quest for clean racing air

was difficult and his chance of a

podium spot dashed.

Jacob’s father, Craig Douglas

said it had been a challenging

weekend but that was the nature

of motorsport.

“We’ve had such a dominant

season, but that’s how luck can

go at times and we will just

have to come back stronger next

year.”

Mr Douglas said his son

was likely to spend half the

year overseas next year as they

looked to race in Europe on top

of the Junior Australian Kart

Championships which begin in

January.

Kirkwood Intermediate

Opportunities

At Kirkwood we are very proud of our children and their achievements.

Our pupils have many opportunities to participate in a wide range of education activities including Technology; ICT;

Music; Drama; Education Outside The Classroom; Leadership roles; Camps; Academic challenges; and Sports.

Our pupils develop a wide range of skills which helps them develop educationally, socially, emotionally and physically

during their time with us. Just a few of the opportunities our pupils have experienced this year are as follows:

Education Outside the Classroom

We visit many different places within our community such as Canterbury Museum,

Riccarton House and the Art Gallery. We also offer class camps for our Year 7 and

Year 8 pupils. This year our Year 7’s camped at Purau Bay where they experienced

canoeing, abseiling and camping skills, along with getting to know their class and

developing friendships.

Sport at Kirkwood Intermediate

We participate in a large variety of sports including: Netball, Football, Cross Country,

Skiing, Swimming, Rugby, Basketball, Waterpolo, Touch Rugby, Korf Ball, Table

Tennis, Badminton, Mountain Biking, Athletics and Gymnastics. We also compete in

the Canterbury Association of Intermediate and Middle Schooling competitions.

Our school is well known for the courtesy, co-operation and sportsmanship of our

teams and we value this highly.

Some of the highlights this year are as follows:

Tuesday Sport - Our A Football

team came second in their

competition.

Indoor Tournament - We took

two basketball teams, two Volleyball

teams and five Badminton teams.

Many of our pupils have been

selected to represent Canterbury

and/or have been selected for the

Nationals in various sports which

makes our school proud.

Wellington camp

This year the Year 8 students attended a school camp in Wellington.

Going on camp was a wonderful experience for the Year 8 students and

they made memories to last a lifetime.

We spent four days in Wellington and the timetable was packed with activities that

related to our school curriculum. We flew to Wellington by plane and spent our first

afternoon at the Beehive, where we had a tour and even had the chance to see

Parliament in session! Following that was a visit to National Library of New Zealand

where we saw the Treaty of Waitangi, the Declaration of Independence and the

Women’s Suffrage Petition.

Our next day began with the filming of a live TV show at Capital E. Our students

took on every role from Director to Sound Technician to News Anchor and worked

together to get the show done. We spent the rest of the day at the Wellington

Museum and Te Papa in the care of two fantastic educators. After dinner, we took an

evening stroll down the water front to Ferg’s Rock where we did some rock-climbing.

On the third day, we walked through the

Wellington Botanical Gardens to get to

Zealandia – a predator-free native bird

sanctuary in the Karori Valley. It was

incredible to see Kaka, Saddlebacks,

Takahe and even Tuatara up close. This

visit related closely to our Term Four

Science topic – New Zealand Birds. In

the afternoon we went to the Wellington

Zoo and had a tour. It was interesting to

compare the lives of animals in the Zoo

with those in the Sanctuary.

Our final day was mostly a travel day as

we took the ferry to Picton and then the

train back to Christchurch. We had a

wonderful time in Wellington. It was so

special to make such amazing memories

with our school friends before we all

leave to high school next year.

Written by Room 12

School Production

Every second year we produce a school performance for all interested pupils.

Our next School Production will be in 2021.

Technology

Our on-site technology centre provides our pupils

with a range of creative learning experiences in

different areas: Foods, Electronics, Robotics and

Materials (metal, wood, fabric and plastic). Our

pupils have created a large variety of work this

year. We also participate in Robofest, Future in

Tech programmes, EPro8 and 3D printing.

Programmes focus on Planning for Practice, Brief

Development and Outcome Evaluation.

Year 7 and Year 8 for 2020.

Gardening

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

SELWYN TIMES

It’s all happening in the garden

NOVEMBER IS a wonderful

month in the garden.

There are masses of lush green

growth, new season vegetables

are growing at a rapid rate and

summer flowering annuals and

roses are bursting with colour.

It’s a joy to be outside and this

month’s tasks will keep you active

in the sunshine.

Vegetable garden

The practice of ‘succession

planting’ is important when it

comes to vegetable gardening. It

means you stagger your plantings

or planting varieties so you do not

have them all cropping at once,

for example if you plant a couple

of lettuces every two to three

weeks.

Continue to plant summer

vegetables including beans (dwarf

and runner), beetroot, cabbage,

celery, corn, cucumber, courgettes,

lettuce, pumpkin, radish,

tomatoes, and kumara. Water

your vegetables regularly but not

excessively. Tie up tomatoes and

remove lateral growth. Apply side

dressings of vegetable fertiliser,

especially to those gross feeders,

for example sweet corn.

Flowering annuals

Spring flowering annuals

should now be in full bloom.

Continue planting seedlings

of alyssum, ageratum, asters,

cornflowers, cosmos, livingstone

daisies, marigolds, nemesias,

HARVEST: To ensure your strawberries are the best possible

quality, cover with bird netting.

phlox, petunias, salvias, strawflowers

and zinnias. Dead head

(removal of dead flowers) the

annuals throughout the growing

season to encourage continuous

blooming.

Fruit trees

All fruit trees are in active

growth in November and young

fruit are forming on pip and

stone trees. Fertilise with fruit

tree fertiliser to encourage strong,

healthy growth – and don’t forget

to water it in well. Citrus trees,

tangelo seminole and harwood

late orange are now ripe and

ready for harvesting.

Strawberries

November is an excellent

month for harvesting strawberries

in the home garden. Plants

require minimal care but maintain

a ‘bed’ of pea straw or hay

around the plants as this helps

reduce possible attacks of botrytis

(grey mould). Cover the strawberry

beds with bird netting

where birds are a problem.

Herbs

As temperatures rise, herbs

thrive. Trim herbs even if they

are not required for the kitchen

as this encourages fresh new

growth. Basil can now be planted

in southern districts as the risk of

late frosts has passed.

Roses

November is a glorious time

for cultivating roses. Bushes are

usually covered in blooms and

are typically disease-free. As with

your flowering annuals, remove

finished flowers (dead heading)

to encourage further flowering

of your roses. Feed with fertiliser

from now until Christmas,

add extra mulch and enjoy your

blooms.

Container gardens

A very simple way to beautify

decks, entranceways, balconies

and courtyards is to include punnets

of flowering annuals. These

are a very economical way of producing

colour in your containers.

TIDY: Use pots and flowering

annuals to create a visually

pleasing entrance to your

home.

Hedges

The spring flush on hedges

should now be finished so it’s

an ideal time to trim and shape

hedges. By trimming ‘a little and

often’ hedges can be maintained

in excellent health and form.

With newly-planted hedges, water

and fertilise regularly to encourage

strong healthy growth.

Lawns

Lawns are at their very best and

it definitely feels like Mowvember

with all the new growth. This

is the last month to ‘safely’ sow

new lawns or ‘patch up’ parts of

existing lawns. Fertilise with lawn

fertiliser, watering immediately

after applications. Where ‘ready’

lawn is to be laid, preparation of

the site is critical to success, as

is regular watering after installation

until the new lawn is well

established.

Ornamental trees and

shrubs

Care of these plants includes

fertiliser applications (every five

to six weeks), mulching to help

retain soil moisture and suppress

weeds, and pruning after flowering

has finished to maintain

healthy, sturdy plants.

Attempt to create an ‘all year

round’ garden by planting trees

and shrubs that flower at different

times of the year.

preparing your

garden for the heat

Get in before the summer heat and apply bark mulch

to your gardens. Your plant’s roots won’t like the hot

weather so a layer of bark will help to protect them

through the summer. Apply at a 10cm depth as this

will help to protect your plants, but will also help to

suppress weeds.

outdoor entertaining

safety in the garden

Spring brings the risk of catching Legionnaires Disease

if you don’t handle potting mixes and compost

correctly. The bacteria that cause Legionnaires

Disease are present naturally in the environment

and there is no method available to eliminate the

bacteria. So, we must work with protecting ourselves

from the harmful effects of these bacteria, in much

the same way as we protect ourselves from the

damage caused to us by exposure to the sun. Below

are some precautions you can take to reduce the risk

of contracting Legionnaires.

juicy lemons need plenty of water

To ensure you have enough juicy lemons, keep the water up to your

plants while they are in flower now. Dry lemons are directly related

to a lack of water as the crop develops over summer.

A layer of mulch works wonders, apply mulch after watering the soil.

A top up of fertiliser will be beneficial for them now too.

We love entertaining outdoors here in NZ, and now

is a great time to get sorted in time for Christmas. A

fresh layer of bark will tidy up the garden wonderfully,

and some decorative stones will add a touch of

something different around patios or pavers. If you

are looking to create a new space, we have a great

range of bark nuggets, mulch, chips, pavers and

stones to help with your DIY projects.

» Open bags with a

sharp knife - away

from the face - in open

spaces, not in enclosed

areas like sheds or

greenhouses

» Remember to use

gloves and masks when

handling the mix

» Dampen any dry mix -

being care not to

inhale dry, dusty mix

» Store bags out of direct

sunlight

» Always wash your

hands after gardening,

and before eating or

drinking

If you develop any flu-like symptoms after working in

the garden head to your Dr immediately. Make sure

you let them know you have been gardening and

need to get tested for Legionnaires.

If you have any queries

about Legionnaires,

check out the CDHB website,

MY PRIDE AND JOY

SELWYN TIMES

A rare British automobile marque

Captain Noel Macklin was behind the Eric-Campbell

and Invicta cars, both light and sporty. The 2-litre

Meadows engine gave Macklin the power he sought

and his sister-in-law, Violette Cordery won a number of

races in the Invicta.

When Macklin sold the Invicta motor vehicle

company in 1933 he started the Fairmile Engineering

Company producing Railton cars from 1933 to 1940.

Named after Reid Railton, designer of the world speed

record car, four Railton models were produced: the

1933 Railton Terraplane, 1935 Railton 8, 1937 Railton

Cobham, and 1938 Railton 8.

John, who is a Selwyn local, bought his 1935 Railton

around 50 years ago but is yet to drive it on the road

with it being carted between homes, travelling more

miles on a trailer than on wheels.

“The car has been fully restored. It’s been well painted,

every nut and bolt in the engine has been rebuilt and

the engine turns over freely and runs like a watch,” says

John who hopes to soon have it registered.

John says the Railton basically comprises a Hudson

Straight 8 engine, gearbox and chassis with an English

body similar to a Bentley. Its top speed is 70mph which

was very fast for its day and comparable to a Bentley on

both speed and road handling. John’s car was raced on

the Dunedin wharf racing circuit.

The 1935 Railton is quite a light car as it is made of

wood and aluminium, hence the speed. It is a fourseater

and unique in look with a 5 foot 6 inch long

bonnet. While spacious inside, including in the rear, it

has a very small boot.

John thinks his is probably the only Railton Sedan in

New Zealand though there are others which have a drop

head canvas roof.

The car has extremely comfortable upholstered leather

seats (front and rear) with a small tray fitted into the

back of the front seats, which folds out to provide a shelf

for drinks.

Only 1460 Hudson based Railton cars were

produced. They were popular with the constabulary;

the Manchester police force used them for police

work while Berkshire Constabulary had two 1936

sports tourers. From 1937 to 1939, Scotland Yard had

a number of eight-cylinder Sandown saloons in their

fleet, adopting the practice of transferring bodies

between chassis when vehicle engines wore out.

“I paid $750 for my 1935 Railton in 1971. It was

advertised in the Otago Vintage Car Club magazine

and a friend told me to buy it. It’s a nice looking car,”

explains John.

A very small boot.

Mercedes-Benz wagon packs a punch

Ross Kiddie

IT WAS ONLY a rumour but I’m a

with a colleague about cars and he

told me that Mercedes-Benz was

engineering the sound out of all of

their models.

Well, most Mercedes-Benz cars

are well hushed, and you would

expect that, the engineering is

such that when you are paying for

a luxury car you wouldn’t want

the travelling experience to be

ruined by loud noise.

However, there are some Mercedes-Benz

cars which are loud,

and the company would make no

apology for that, sound is a large

part of their appeal.

The cars I’m talking about are

the performance models, those

with AMG badging and those

with high performance engines,

there are too many to list individually,

but almost all of those have

the 63 S engine, the 4-litre V8 that

characterises the AMG range is

especially loud and I would hate it

if that beautiful exhaust note was

ever stifled.

The latest car to come my way

with that twin-turbocharged V8

was the C 63 S estate, or station

wagon as we have come to know

them down under.

It’s fair to say I was in heaven

with this car, I love wagons and,

of course, that howling V8 up

front is something absolutely

special.

Mercedes-Benz rates the

quad-camshaft unit with a

massive 375kW and a staggering

700Nm of torque, the latter

available all of the way from

2000 to 4500rpm. Hence the C

63 S is a vibrant, lusty vehicle, it

will lunge to 100kmh in 4.1sec

and will complete an 80km/h to

120km/h overtaking manoeuvre

in 3.8sec. They are quick figures

and ones which will satisfy the

sports car buyer immensely. Such

is the strength of the engine, the

traction control network is challenged,

under hard acceleration

you can hear the rear tyres chirping

as they eke grip.

Yes, the C 63 S estate drives

through a nine-speed transmission

to the rear wheels only, to my

way of thinking that’s also a benefit,

while I like the 4Matic system

that is fitted to other Mercedes-

Benz product, the weight saving

and pure driving feel you get

through rear-wheel-drive only is

something rather special.

Of course, the driveline is engineered

for safety and there is little

chance of rear-end breakaway, but

MERCEDES-BENZ AMG C 63 S: Performance car with handy

wagon section.

if you are tackling the back roads

at speed, you can ask the

C 63 S to be a little playful.

Time was a little against me

during testing so I didn’t get all

of the way to the Lake Coleridge

Village, that road is my favourite

for cars of this ilk, but I did get to

Terrace Downs and I was thrilled

with the zest and vibrancy of the

engine, and chassis package.

In terms of sound, there is a

button which amplifies exhaust

tone and I had that activated all of

the time, there’s a bark out of the

pipes when the gears change up

and it is absolutely tantalising.

There are also a multitude of

drive modes and they can be

individually tailored, or you can

use either of the many pre-programmed

settings.

You won’t get away with driving

the V8 C-Class quickly without

• Price – Mercedes-Benz

AMG C 63 S estate,

$172,700

• Dimensions – Length,

4702mm; width, 1810mm;

height, 1457mm

• Configuration – V8,

rear-wheel-drive, 3982cc,

375kW, 700Nm, ninespeed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 4.1sec

• Fuel usage – 10.7l/100km

noticing a corresponding effect

on fuel use, after my long highway

burst, the readout was showing

a 12.9- litre per 100km (22mpg)

fuel burn, that’s somewhat higher

than Mercedes-Benz’s combined

cycle claim of 10.7l/100km

(27mpg), but if that target is

achievable then it deserves

credit. For the record, on an easy

100km/h cruise the dash panel

readout sits at 7l/100km (40mpg),

the engine largely unstressed at

1400rpm.

Personally, I was too preoccupied

having fun in the estate

to concentrate too much on

economy, it’s an absolute blast to

drive, everything it does it does so

competently.

I guess at $172,700 you would

want that to be the case, but you

do get a lot of car for the money

and it is fully loaded with everything

for comfort, convenience

and safety.

The C-Class isn’t big in statute

but it is a capable five-seater, and

in estate form it adds just that little

bit of practicality, the load space

will take in up to 490-litres and

that easily translates into a multitude

of cargo carrying options.

The face of motoring is changing

rapidly, there’s a global ground

swell of rhetoric calling for greater

emphasis on alternative fuels as

opposed to the oil we pump out of

the ground - electric and hydrogen-based

alternatives are fast

becoming the buzz words.

That being the case, if there are

buyers out there like me, who like

the pumping sound that is only

available from V8 power, then

now is the time to buy. I’ll never

be able to afford one, but I am

certainly delighted for those who

can find their way into one of

the greatest driving experiences

available in the market today.

New car care products on market

A PREMIUM car care brand that has

Royal approval is now on sale in New

Zealand.

Autoglym is offering a retail range of 18

products, available in all Supercheap Auto

stores across New Zealand.

The product range includes the new

Polar Series, a three-step, pressure washerapplied

pre-wash, wash and protective

coating system, along with other options

for cleaning and protecting bodywork,

and specialist treatments for glass, interior

finishes and wheels and tyres.

Autoglym was founded in the United

Kingdom in 1965 with the tagline ‘passion

for perfection’ and has lived up to that ever

since, gaining an international reputation for

high quality products that are sold in more

than 45 countries.

The company’s original range was an

offering of 11 products including polishes, a

sealant, a paint renovator and glass, interior

and wheel cleaners.

Initially, they were only available to

professional detailers working in garages,

workshops and valet operations. Now,

while still the chosen option for the car care

industry, Autoglym has extended its range

to more than 65 specialty retail products.

The result of more than 40 years of

research and development – and with

several patents for all-new technology –

Autoglym products combine ease of use,

value and reliability with excellent aftersales

service.

The company also boasts a royal

connection, with Royal Warrants from Her

Majesty, the Queen, and HRH, The Prince

of Wales.

Look closely and you will see two coats of

arms on the company’s product labels. These

are the marks of a Royal Warrant, an official

seal of sovereign approval, which is a mark

of recognition for those who have supplied

goods or services to the households of the

senior royals for at least five years, and who

have an ongoing trading arrangement.

Autoglym is the sole supplier of car care

products to the Royal household, which

means the company’s products are used on

all vehicles in the Royal fleet including state

cars, Royal estate vehicles and state coaches.

As a result, the Autoglym range gets put to

the test on vehicles that are both brand new

and hundreds of years old and is relied upon

to give the best results every time.

Around 800 companies currently hold

Royal Warrants, which come up for renewal

every five years. At that point it has to be

proved that the business still meets all

the criteria set by the Warrant Holders

Association and the individual royal

household – and Autoglym has continued to

do this since its first appointment in 1991.

Autoglym is distributed in New Zealand

and Australia by Sydney-based company,

GnG Sales. “There has been a very limited

distribution of retail packaged Autoglym

products into New Zealand. Mainly it’s

been our professional range though, which

means it has been used by pro detailers,

amongst others and until now customers

have generally only seen the brilliant end

result,” says GnG Sales’ head of marketing,

David Turney.

“Now any New Zealander who is

passionate about their car can buy the

products appropriate to their need.’’

Mr Turney says GnG will be working to

expand and leverage greater awareness of

the brand through the country.

[Edition datE]

Buying a lifestyle block

City life getting you down? Dreaming of

living in the country, where you ‘commute’

from the breakfast table to a barn or your

home office? It might look like an easy life but

buying a lifestyle property can be a complex

business.

While living in the country has much

to recommend it, you need to do more

preparation for buying a place there than

buying a pair of gumboots and comparing

the merits of ride-on mowers.

“We recommend comprehensive due

diligence when buying any kind of property,

but rural ones come with a whole extra set of

things to think about compared to buying a

straightforward stand-alone home in town,”

says Kevin Lampen-Smith, chief executive of

the Real Estate Authority (REA).

Lampen-Smith says that while it’s tempting

to focus on the dream wish list for your

bucolic bolt-hole, but you should also

compile a list of issues to be aware of (and

people who can help you learn about them).

“If the property you like is being sold by a

licensed real estate agent, remember that you

can ask them anything you like about it,” he

says.

“Rural real estate agents have special skills

in this area and they’ll be able to help you

figure out what information you need to

make a well-informed decision. It’s also a

good idea to get your lawyer onboard early to

check titles, consents and other information

that you gather in the process.”

It might feel like you’re getting away from

it all when moving out of town, but rural

developments can be subject to rules that

restrict what you can do. Lampen-Smith

recommends getting your lawyer to check if

there are any covenants on the property that

might have an impact on a future business

you may run there, or any planned building

projects. You don’t want to invest in an

alpaca herd for your new dream property

only to find that it’s not allowed to carry any

livestock. Similarly, it would be tough to

discover that your subdivision plans are not

permitted by council rules.

Be aware that there may be tax implications

if you’re planning to use the property as a

business, Lampen-Smith says.

“In general, if it is currently being used for

a business that is tax-registered – whether

that’s selling organic eggs, grazing stock

or running a B&B – then the seller will

probably add GST to the price. This means

you’ll pay an extra 15 per cent, unless you are

also registered for GST. Ask your lawyer or

accountant to check if the house or any other

buildings on the property are GST-exempt.

They will also be able to advise you on

whether you need to be GST-registered.”

A good place to start when trying to figure

out what tax obligations might attach to your

purchase of the property is Inland Revenue’s

property tax decision tree (available at

http://www.ird.govt.nz/property/propertyterms-and-tools/property-decision-tree/),

but keep in mind that it is always best to

seek professional advice before you make a

decision.

Rural properties (like all properties) can

also have easements on the title that relate to

access, water or power. Lampen-Smith says

you should ask your lawyer to check the title

and work out what the easements are, and

how they will have an impact on your rights

and responsibilities as an owner.

“For example, if the title allows a neighbour

access to a piece of their land through your

property, do you have any right to limit the

type and frequency of that access if you buy

it?”

Be aware too that there may be ‘unofficial’

easements operating; the incumbent owners

may have an informal arrangement with their

neighbours, but this may not remain when

the property passes into new ownership.

Things that we take for granted when living

in urban environments, like water, sewage

and access, can require more involvement in

rural areas. Check the water sources for the

property – if it has its own bore, are there

limits on the amount of water you can draw

from it? What is the process for ensuring it is

safe to drink? What happens to wastewater

and sewage? Are you prepared for life with

a septic tank? Will the current owner ensure

the tank is empty as a condition of sale?

When it comes to access, will you share

a private road or right of way with other

properties? What will be your responsibilities

and potential costs for maintaining it? Don’t

forget that your neighbours may be involved

in unglamorous activities at ungodly hours –

check the zoning rules for nearby properties

if you’re worried about noise, smells or traffic.

You might think it’s lovely to have stock

grazing out the window, but are you ready for

a milk tanker driving past every morning? Be

aware that the LIM will not always alert you

to any pending or current NZTA decisions

regarding local highway linkages that often

divert traffic away from urban centres in

favour of immediate rural areas on the town

boundary. Check with NZTA if you think

your property could be affected by road

changes.

“Like all property purchases, buying a place

in the country requires careful, objective

consideration,” Lampen-Smith says.

“There are lots of great things about living

on the land, but it’s best to be realistic about

it. You don’t want to be like the former townie

I met a few weeks ago, who mournfully told

me that their lifestyle block had become “a

life sentence”. Do your homework and you’re

far more likely to live happily ever after in

rural bliss.”

Buying a property at

auction

If you’re keen on a property that’s going

to auction, preparation is everything. A

successful bid means you are immediately

committed to buy the property; you cannot

seek legal advice, arrange finance or even get

the property valued or inspected when the

auction is over.

That means you need to do all your due

diligence in advance of auction day. Before

the auction (usually after you’ve viewed the

property), the real estate agent working for

the seller should provide you with a copy of

the terms and Contract of Sale, which sets

out what chattels will be included with the

property. This document will also tell you

the amount of the deposit to be paid by the

successful bidder, and when the balance of

the payment must be made. These documents

should be checked by your lawyer.

You should consider having the property

checked (preferably by a qualified inspector

who has professional indemnity insurance

and carries out their work in accordance

with the New Zealand Property Inspection

Standards and obtain an up-to-date Land

Information Memorandum (LIM) from the

local council. It’s a good idea to get a valuation

of the property, especially as you are likely to

require one if you need a loan. Some websites

provide free estimated market values that may

be useful.

There’s a lot to take in at an auction and

it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. If you can, go

along to one as an observer to see how the

process works before you actually want to

buy. Remember that the auctioneer is working

for the seller and they want to get the highest

price possible for the property.

At an auction, the auctioneer will read the

terms and conditions of the sale aloud and

announce if a reserve price has been set. They

must also state whether the seller has reserved

the right to bid during the auction. This is

called ‘vendor bidding’ and it is only allowed

under strict circumstances, such as when the

property being auctioned has a reserve price;

when the reserve price has not yet been met;

and the auctioneer has made it clear that the

bid being made is a vendor bid. They must do

this by saying, ‘this is a vendor bid’ rather than

using any jargon.

Auctioneers sometimes use vendor bids

as a way to start off the bidding, or to move

the bidding towards the reserve price.

Vendor bids can be made by the auctioneer,

or another person working on behalf of

the seller, such as a real estate agent. An

auctioneer can also use a pre-auction offer to

start the bidding.

The auction continues until there is only

one bidder left. At that stage, if the reserve

price is reached or beaten, the highest bidder

will be the successful buyer. If the reserve

price isn’t reached, the seller can tell the

auctioneer to stop the auction without selling

the property.

If the auction is stopped without a sale, the

highest bidder may have the opportunity to

negotiate with the seller (via their agent) after

the auction. If this happens, the terms and

conditions of the auction no longer apply and

you can negotiate new ones.

Property Market Update

with Harcourts Four Seasons

Real estate sells

during holidays

It might seem a quiet time of the year when everything grinds to a halt yet

properties do sell over the Christmas and New Year holiday period.

“Sales in the holiday period can be good,” says

Ross Mitchell, manager of Harcourts Four Seasons in

Lincoln.

Property sales for December and January are always

very good and just slightly behind other months.

For the eight Harcourts Four Seasons offices across

Canterbury, sales written up in January have been

trending upwards over recent years with January 2019

registering a slightly higher figure than for January

2018, which was also above the figures for January

2017.

At this time of year most properties are looking

their best making it a great time to sell. Ross also

says there are always people looking to buy and the

holiday period gives them time to research and view

properties.

“People go away on holiday and sit around and

discuss their future plans. Mums and dads have more

time to sit down and chat about what they want to

do. It is not uncommon for them to come back from

holiday and immediately put their plans into action.

They start looking or put their house on the market,”

explains Ross.

With daylight saving there can be more time and

energy both for looking at properties and keeping the

one you are selling tidy.

“I’ve personally written up contracts in the days

between Christmas and New Year and all the agents

at our branch have made a sale in the first week in

January,” says Ross.

Unlike other businesses, there are always real

estate agents available over the Christmas and New

Year period to help people looking to buy or sell a

property. With cell phones and portable laptops,

agents are accessible even when on holiday. Most

check their phones and emails daily and respond

promptly.

If thinking of selling your property, why put it off

at this time of year because you have the idea no one

will be looking over Christmas and New Year. Ross

says, many of their agents do not take an official

holiday at this time of year, and there is still plenty of

activity in the market.

Serious buyers may be people wanting to get their

children into a certain school zone or on transfer

with their job. Lincoln University personnel on

secondment may be looking for a home or people

who have children who will be attending Lincoln

University in the coming year might be aiming to

relocate closer to the institution.

Ross Mitchell,

manager of Harcourts

Four Seasons in

Lincoln.
