“I was pretty nervous when I

found out I would lose it at first

but I settled in when I realised

it was all going to a good

cause and I was happy to be

involved,” said Mr Brown.

He was initially planning on

growing out the beard again.

‘I was planning on growing

it straight back but from everyone’s

comments, I’m not overly

Second

rest

home

planned

• By Devon Bolger

ANOTHER LARGE retirement

home is planned for Prebbleton.

Bupa has plans to put a 100-plus

unit retirement village and care

home near Stationmasters Way.

It comes two weeks after Summerset

announced the purchase

of the old Meadow Mushrooms

site on Springs Rd where it will

build a 290-home retirement village.

Bupa head of property development

Jamie Gibson their facility

will have 101 villas, a 56-bed care

home, 16 serviced apartments and

will create more than 80 jobs.

“The village and care home

will help to meet the increasing

demand in the area. The development

will be delivered in multiple

stages until 2023.”

Mr Gibson said stage one of

the villa development will begin

before Christmas with the first

units due for release in November

next year.

The moves from Bupa and

Summerset could also pave the

way for other retirement villages

across the district.

THERE’S NO rocket science in building

rest homes in Selwyn.

On page 1 today we reveal another large

complex is planned for Prebbleton.

As the population swells there is going

to be a market for all types of housing in

the decades to come – three and four-bedroom houses for the

influx of families, over-60s units and now retirement villages at

the outer end of the age spectrum.

And I suspect for many older people, it is good news rest

homes are now on the horizon.

A high percentage of the elderly are born and bred in the district,

the thought of moving outside of the area when it’s time

to move on from the family home must be a stressful thought.

Not anymore.

Fire restrictions

likely from this weekend

• By Devon Bolger

A FIRE restriction could be

placed on the district as soon as

Friday night.

Principal rural fire officer

Bruce Janes said: “I’ll be recommending

that we go into

restricted season at midnight on

Friday evening.

“We are

working

through the

processes, I

can’t just do it,

I have to tick

a lot of boxes

and things

before we can

actually do it.

“It is safe

to say the district is heading

towards restricted season this

weekend,’’ Mr Janes said.

Firefighters are anticipating

another busy dry season in the

district this year.

The hottest November on

record combined with a wet winter

has the district on course to

become a powder keg.

out very rapidly.

“Anything that is a large pile

or a big pit or was a big burn off,

“We discussed that we have

Darfield chief fire officer Alan

the hotter weather.

“The district is pretty dry this

people just need to be vigilant

DRIVER TO FACE CHARGES

A young female driver will

be charged with drink driving

after a crash on Leeston-

Dunsandel Rd late on Saturday

night. Sergeant Alex Pickover

said the driver was under the

age of 20 so she will be

charged with excess blood

alcohol and appear in court.

The driver recorded a breath

alcohol reading of 313mcg/l.

The legal limit for anyone

under 20 is 0mcg/l Sergeant

Pickover said there were no

injuries.

FIRE BESIDE RAILWAY LINE

A passing train was responsible

for a small scrub fire near the

railway line between Kirwee

and Darfield on Friday. Fire

crews from the Kirwee and West

the blaze at about 7.13am. Fire

and Emergency New Zealand

spokesman Brent Dunn said

the fire took about 45min to

put out. Mr Dunn said FENZ is

liaising with KiwiRail to ensure

the train and tracks are safe to

prevent further fires breaking

Population growth offers potential

• From page 1

Ryman Healthcare spokesman

David King said although they

have no firm plans right now, the

district has the potential for a

future village.

“We think Selwyn is an area

with huge potential because of its

growth in recent years, and it is

definitely on our radar.’’

Selwyn is the second-fastestgrowing

district in New Zealand

with a population of 60,561

according to census 2018

figures.

Detailed 2018 census results

have not been released but figures

from census 2013 show 10.8 per

cent of residents are aged 65 years

and over.

Care volunteer co-ordinator

Juliette Easterbrook said more

rest homes are needed in the

district.

“People are having to go to

Hornby and Riccarton when they

go into care and there are more

and more of our clients going

into care,” she said.

Ms Easterbrook said it is a

good idea and a good thing for

the district but does wonder if the

size is necessary.

E-scooters could

be legal tomorrow

• By Devon Bolger

E-SCOOTERS may hit the

streets of Selwyn tomorrow

depending on the adoption

of a bylaw at a district

council meeting today.

The new traffic and parking

bylaw includes changes

that would make it legal for

commercial e-scooters to

use and park on streets.

Lime and local company

Lava have indicated they

plan to have scooters available

on Thursday morning

if it is adopted at the meeting

on Wednesday.

If it is not then the trial

will be unable to begin.

Lincoln residents Angela

and Phillip Eberhard

started the business Lava

Scooters.

Mrs Eberhard said they

will have scooters on the

street on Thursday but

their official launch is on

Saturday.

“Our plan is to launch

at the Lincoln Christmas

market and parade. We are

going to have a stall there

with some scooters and

some education going on,

helping people download

the app and things like that.”

She said their operating

hours will be between 7am-

9pm seven days a week.

It will cost $1 to unlock

a scooter and 35 cents per

minute after that and a

promo code will be available

for $5 off the first ride.

As the start draws near,

things are getting more

hectic, Mrs Eberhard said.

“There is a lot more to do

so it’s all about making lists

and ticking lots of boxes.

People power wins out

• By Devon Bolger

PEOPLE POWER in Tai Tapu

has won out over a planned

liquor store.

Gulati Brothers Enterprises

Ltd applied for an off-licence

to operate a liquor store

in Tai Tapu in the vacant

Belleza Boutique building on

Christchurch Akaroa Rd.

But the business has now

withdrawn its application to

the district council.

The application drew 54 objections.

Police and the Canterbury

District Health Board

medical officer of health were

among the objectors.

The Tai Tapu Community

committee also opposed the

application.

An email from the district

council to the committee said:

“The applicant informed the

chief licensing inspector that

he wouldn’t want to go against

the community decisions or to

upset the community.

“He would like to operate

a business with community

support.”

Committee chairman

Gerald Carter said it was great

news and he is happy with the

outcome.

Tai Tapu residents Janet

and Hugh Macleod strongly

objected to the application.

STEP-BACK: The vacant Belleza Boutique building on

Christchurch Akaroa Rd was the proposed location in the

liquor store application that has since been withdrawn. ​

She was very pleased to hear

it had been withdrawn.

“There seems to be plenty of

liquor outlets around here in

Lincoln and Halswell, so I am

very pleased they have pulled

out of their application.”

Mrs Macleod said Gulati

Brothers Enterprises Ltd’s

decision to withdraw its application

was a good one.

“It was a very good decision,”

she said.

“It would have been a real

shame if it had to go to a hearing

so I am pleased about that.”

Beard

no more

• From page 1

“There’s been a lot of opinions

to stay shaven so we will see if

the pressure gets the best of me,”

Mr Brown said.

He was amazed at the amount

of money raised.

“Everyone should be very

proud, it was quite a feat and we

could make a real difference.

“I’ve been pretty amazed by

the support we have received

from the locals, they are over the

moon for me.”

The Movember campaign is

an international movement that

focuses on men’s health issues.

In Brief

SELWYN TIMES

FREE ENGRAVING

Rolleston police are offering free

engraving for scooters and bikes

to prevent them from going

missing.

Sergeant Alex Pickover said

they can be engraved with the

owner’s details so they are able

to return it if it’s handed in.

“We also ran it last year because

we used to get a whole load of

scooters handed in and since

then we have seen a decrease in

that.” To use the service, visit the

Rolleston station on Monday-

Friday from 8am-4pm.

CHERRY trees damaged

during the construction of

the new NPD in Darfield

will be replaced.

The contractor asked

for a tree to be removed

outside of the site in

November, district council

property and commercial

group manager Douglas

Marshall said.

“After an assessment,

the council agreed the

tree could be removed

and asked that three more

trees in the road reserve

were also removed as they

had been damaged during

construction.”

DAMAGE:

The NPD

site after

the trees

were

removed.

Axed trees to be replaced

near service station

Three of the trees are

now gone and one is due to

be removed.

Mr Marshall said thee

district council has asked

that four flowering cherry

trees be planted to replace

those that were removed.

NPD chief executive

Barry Sheridan said the

tree at the front of the site

was slightly damaged when

craning in one of their

signs.

“Further investigation

showed that the tree wasn’t

particularly healthy so,

with council approval, it

was removed. In its place,

we are planting a flowering

tree in the autumn, together

with replacing three

other trees further along

the road,” he said.

Malvern Community

Board member Bill Woods

said he is not happy with

the resolution.

“There has been no

reason given for the

removal of the two trees

that obscured the fuel

price sign. There was no

possibility that they

could have been damaged

during construction as

access to the site was off

Ritso St.”

He said the item will be

on the next community

board meeting agenda and

will be discussed further.

Sophie McInnes

Juggling motherhood and politics

Rolleston’s Sophie

McInnes has secured

herself a seat

representing the Selwyn

Central Ward at the

district council table. The

new councillor talked

to Devon Bolger about

juggling motherhood and

politics

What made you want to get

involved in the district council?

I felt like this is a time when

so much is happening, locally

and nationally, and I wanted to

play a bigger part. I want to be a

part of the big local projects like

expanding Pines Resource Recovery

Park and establishing the

health hub in Rolleston, and

the upcoming legislative changes

around water and emissions

which will have a huge impact

on the people of Selwyn. I also

hoped for more diversity among

the councillors to better reflect

the district’s demographic profile,

and am very happy that we

do now have a broader range in

terms of age, sex, and ethnicity.

Do you have a day job?

Not a paid one. I’ve been a

stay at home mum for the past

four years now. I have also been

volunteering during this time

which I think is a great way to

give back to your community.

I’m on the committee of Multiples

Canterbury which supports

families with twins, triplets

and quads in the upper South

Island. I also enjoy what’s called

bite-size volunteering which is

just volunteering but in a shorter

timeframe, like manning a

poppy stall. I have also joined the

new Rolleston Rotary club.

Can you tell me about your

family?

My husband Robert is a mechanical

design engineer turned

beekeeper and now works with

hives across Selwyn, Waimakiriri,

and Hurunui. We have

three fantastic children, Katelyn

is 12, and I have three-year-old

twins Jack and Chloe, they keep

us on our toes. My brother-inlaw

and his family also live in

Rolleston. My own family all live

in England and France.

How are you feeling about

juggling it all?

I am still feeling that one out.

Until recently I haven’t known

what committees I’m going to be

on and when exactly they will be

meeting and that kind of thing.

It’s great we have a bit more of a

timetable now and my husband’s

job is quite flexible so we just

have to find a way to balance it

all to the point where we can

both get done what we need to

SUPPORT: Sophie McInnes and her husband Robert with their three children Jack, 3, Katelyn, 12

and Chloe, 3.

do. Before I threw my hat in the

ring I made a point of speaking

with quite a few current councillors

and a couple of past ones

who had school-aged kids to get

some advice on how they made it

work so seeing that they can do it

showed me I can too.

How long have you lived in

Selwyn?

We came to New Zealand in

2010 and our first house was in

Halswell. In 2013 we moved to a

lifestyle block in Broadfield and

car-shared into Christchurch

for work but found that there

is a risk of disconnection when

you spend most of your daylight

hours somewhere else. Last year

we downsized for financial reasons

and moved into Rolleston

which has massively reduced our

fuel bill and increased our oldest

child’s ability to be independent.

What do you like about living

here?

It’s close to Christchurch, but

has its own identity. I really don’t

like hearing Rolleston referred

to as a suburb because there is

strength, character, and community

here. I also love that our

district really does stretch from

the mountains to the sea with

diverse landscapes in between

and lots of things to do.

Our People

• From page 20

Where did you grow up?

In Bournemouth on the south

coast of England, which is just

to the west of Christchurch,

England coincidentally. We went

back for a visit last June and it

was wonderful to see family,

friends, and my favourite places

again. I still believe that New

Zealand is the right place for my

little whānau though.

What are some of your biggest

achievements?

I’m not sure about these being

big achievements but my most

significant life experiences are

the summer I spent volunteering

in rural Kenya and being

diagnosed with thyroid cancer, I

am fully recovered now though.

They taught me a lot about appreciating

what you have and the

immense value of support. I refer

back to them a lot when thinking

about what is important, and

they keep me grounded when

things get tough.

Could you tell me more about

being diagnosed with cancer?

I was diagnosed in late 2007,

Katelyn was only a few months

old. I underwent surgery to treat

it and had a total thyroidectomy

followed by two rounds of radioactive

iodine. I was given the

all clear in 2008 and feel very

lucky. These days I just have to

take daily thyroxine tablets and

have bi-annual monitoring at

Christchurch Hospital. It took

a long time to feel safe though,

which is the main reason why we

have such a big age gap between

our kids.

What are you interested in

outside of the council?

Spending quality time with my

family, as much of it outdoors

as possible. I often take the kids

down to Coe’s Ford, Prebbleton

Nature Park, the Willows, or one

of the playgrounds in the district.

We’re looking forward to getting

out in the caravan again this

summer and we now have a 4WD

that we can all squeeze into as

well. I think it’s petty cool that we

can do all this without having to

leave Selwyn.

What expertise do you bring

to the council?

I’m not a member of any

profession but I don’t think this

is a disadvantage because sitting

around the council table is about

representing the community. I

have a degree in anthropology and

AMBITIOUS: Sophie McInnes has gone from a stay at home

mum to representing the Selwyn Central Ward at the district

council table.

a broad range of experience in both

the public and private sector.

I have been a PA for most of my

working life, so analysing and

communicating information

between different groups is quite

familiar to me. I am also an active

volunteer and user of local

SELWYN TIMES

Life experiences valuable for new council role

services which has put me in

touch with a wide range of people

and places across the district. On

top of this, being apart of a family

of five on a low income means

I absolutely feel the need to keep

rates manageable.

What do you know about

council procedure?

Part of it was from talking

to the other councillors and I

managed to get to about four

council meetings before the

elections and I went to a number

of committee meetings as well.

It was mainly to get my head

around things but also it is

much easier when you can get

a hold of the agenda’s and read

through the reports. The last

couple of full council meetings

were very helpful because they

went through things like the

annual report that had a lot of

condensed information about

different sections of the council

and how they work so that was

great. As far as process and stuff

goes, I used to be a principal PA

and I was also board secretary

as part of that. It’s not as big

as the council but it has very

similar standing orders, meeting

structure and things like that.

Preparing for the celebratory season

IT’S STARTING to look a bit

like Christmas

It was a busy weekend at our

place over the weekend, ushering

in Christmas month.

This time of year is also the

start of kids’ birthday season for

us, thanks to Vittoria being a

January baby.

Our first was on Saturday and

Vittoria was her typical vivacious

self, running about and munching

on birthday treats.

She even managed to borrow

another friend’s wooden bike as

we were leaving – I mean convincing

a toddler to give up a toy

when you have your arms full is

a tall order.

Later that night, Vittoria’s

godfather Codey arrived from

Australia for a lightning fast

whānau visit and stayed with us

for the night.

Vittoria was fast asleep by the

time he arrived so I waited until

later in the morning to take her

into the room and see him/shock

him awake in petty retaliation

for not doing the dishes when we

were flatmates.

I had thought finding a grown

man asleep in her room might

have surprised her at least a

little, but as soon as she saw it

was Codey she just lit up and

was happy to giggle and babble

away to him.

VITTORIA

& Matt

Watching the two of them

together while he was at our

place was awesome. She hasn’t

seen her godfather since her first

birthday, but she was straight

back into playing with him like it

had only been a day or two.

The top game of the morning?

Riding the borrowed bike

through Codey’s legs, hunting

him down if he wanted to stop

playing and eat.

As Codey had family commitments

for the afternoon, and it

was December 1, we decided the

best use of it would be to run the

gauntlet of building the Christmas

tree with a toddler about.

With the fairly minimum cost

of the destruction of the majority

of our collection of little drum

ornaments, we managed to get

it together in just over an hour.

It’s now sat tantalisingly out of

tackle range, but not entirely out

of reach, on a set of drawers.

The fact that I can’t see Laura

through it if we’re watching TV

is more likely to see it moved

than any Vittoria-based issues.

Which is way better than I

expected.

Having said that, there’s still

plenty of month to go until it’ll

come down, so, wish me luck.

Selwyn School oF Dance

Gold Coast Bound

In January 2020, The Selwyn School of Dance is sending a team of 23 girls

to the Evolution Dance Competition at the Royal Pines Resort in the Gold

Coast. They will compete against the best from across New Zealand and

Australia. The team qualified for finals at the regional competition held here in

Christchurch, with some amazing results!

to foster the development of creative innovation and artistic expression.

The Selwyn School of Dance is committed to offering the highest calibre

of education to the dance experience.

At the 2019 Finals held earlier this year five girls performed and placed in the

top three for Ballet, Lyrical and Contemporary. Our current team of 23 girls hope

to continue to build on these achievements and our younger dancers will gain

experience on an international stage. The dancers along with their teachers

have put countless hours preparing for the competition.

Fundraising has been underway for the past three months to assist them in

reducing the cost of travel, costuming and accommodation for the dancers.

Multiple fundraising events have included a quiz night, a car wash organised

by the Dads, plant sales, Rolleston Fireworks Night, raffles, sausage sizzles

and a fashion show! The team is also supported by The Selwyn District Council

through a grant.

Our dancers would like to acknowledge the support of our local community and

thank them for the many donations. We would also like to thank the business’

who have offered individual sponsorship.

Think water sense

this summer

Summer is here, and it’s time to start thinking about conserving water so we can all keep enjoying

a reliable water service through the hotter and drier months.

Through good planning and investment in our water supplies, the Council is in a good position

to meet increased water demand during summer, and there is no immediate need for mandatory

water restrictions. However, if demand for water increases over summer then water restrictions

may be introduced requiring households to avoid watering lawns at specific times, Council

Infrastructure Group Manager Murray Washington says.

“Water supplies are often placed under pressure during summer as many people decide to water

their lawns and gardens at the same time. So, we’re encouraging people to think about their water

use. If everyone plays their part we should be able to avoid restrictions and provide water at a

good pressure all summer long.”

To help this happen, the Council is recommending that people limit garden and lawn watering to

after 9pm, to keep it away from peak usage times and ensure the sun doesn’t quickly evaporate

the used water. If you are considering watering your lawn during the day, it is best to check the

conditions and make sure that it won’t be too hot or windy when you do it, which would reduce

the effectiveness of the water use.

Tips for managing your water use:

· Water your garden and lawn every few days rather than every day.

· Water for shorter periods, for example, setting your system to run for three five-minute intervals

over a couple of hours lets the soil absorb more water than watering for 15 minutes continuously

· Use a watering can or hose

· Check hoses or taps for leaks and make sure sprinklers are watering the plants not the driveway,

footpath or buildings.

When to water your lawn

Don’t irrigate

Between 6–9am or 4–9pm daily.

Check weather conditions

before watering

While there are no water restrictions at this

time, we recommend you check weather

conditions before watering. Watering your

lawn during the middle of the day during hot

days, or when a nor’ west is blowing results

in a lot of water evaporating and watering

in these conditions is not recommended.

Watering on a cooler, overcast day is a better

option as this provides the best opportunity

for water to soak into your lawn or garden.

Irrigate wisely

More than a decade of success

with dogs

Almost 150 dogs will be spending their golden years in Selwyn

this year.

In Selwyn, dogs that are 14 years or older and have been registered

with the Council on time for 10 years are eligible for Gold Tag status

and don’t have to pay annual registration fees.

This year 149 dogs received their Gold Tag status. They are among

the 14,045 dogs registered with the Council for the 2019/20 year.

It’s the eleventh year in a row that the Council has achieved 100%

re-registration and the fastest the target has been achieved.

The Gold Tag policy was brought in five years ago as a way to

recognise good ownership, and part of the Council Animal Control

team’s work to support owners, Senior Animal Control Officer Steve

Clarke says.

Most dog owners in Selwyn are responsible and take good care of

their dogs, and the Council makes an effort to work with people to

help get all dogs registered, Steve says.

“People out here are pretty good, they love their dogs. We do have

the power to seize a dog, but we haven’t had to do that for a few

years. It’s education over enforcement.”

The comparatively low registration fee of $40 if people register early,

and an easy online system to register and receive reminders also

helps, he says.

Fees collected from registration help fund the Council’s dog control

operation, which operates 24/7. It includes community education, the

‘Dog Smart’ education programme provided in schools, enforcement

activities, operating the dog pound and providing free microchipping

for the district’s dogs.

To sign up for notifications and online registration, visit

selwyn.govt.nz/dogs, email dogrego@selwyn.govt.nz, or phone

the Council on 347 2800.

A surprising move to Selwyn

Continuing our series celebrating the Faces of Selwyn. Visit selwyn.

govt.nz/facesofselwyn for the full story.

When Adam Thomas first looked at a property in Rolleston 25 years

ago it wasn’t the first choice of places to live.

“When I told my wife Jane I’d found a nice house on a nice bit of land

near Rolleston, she said ‘It would have to be nice to move to Rolleston’.

It was a few houses, a fish and chip shop, and a prison back then.”

Adam, who was raised in Selwyn, says the area suited them when

they began looking for a rural property and worked well as the town

began growing with their family, giving the children an outdoor

lifestyle with links to town.

“The first subdivision started after we moved in. Rolleston was

starting to grow and it was an exciting place to be. It was a friendly

community. Still is, but you don’t bump into so many familiar faces

in the shops as you used to. When our eldest started in 2000 at

Rolleston Primary School there was about 180 pupils. When the

youngest left in 2011 there was 800 and it wasn’t the only school.”

Jane, a Library Assistant at the Christchurch College of Education

and later at Lincoln Library, ran a ‘music for tots’ group for parents

with preschoolers, and was on the Parent Teacher Association at

Rolleston Primary School.

Adam worked in Lincoln, at Landcare Research and at AgResearch.

He has been a member of the Lincoln Badminton Club since his

teens, was on the board of trustees at Rolleston Primary School and

a member of the now disbanded Rotoract Club for younger people to

be engaged socially and in community work.

After 25 years they’re glad they made the shift.

“We both like being out of the city. We enjoy visiting the city, but

prefer to live with a bit of space around us. We know the area and

Rolleston still works for us. We certainly wouldn’t change anything

now. It worked out well.”

Are you looking to host a Christmas or New Year’s

get together with your neighbours?

Here in Selwyn we encourage you to organise your own local street gathering so you can get to know

your neighbours. The Council currently has funding available and is offering a subsidy of up to $75 per

street gathering through our Meet Your Street fund (conditions apply). For more information or to apply

STEADY THE SHIP: Sam Chamberlain, seen here playing against Cheviot last month, scored

an unbeaten 47 to help Leeston-Southbridge to a five-wicket win over Weedons in Canterbury

Country premier twenty20 cricket on Saturday.

Weedons stumble in

tough conditions

• By Jacob Page

WEEDONS HAD a tough

second weekend of Canterbury

Country premier twenty20

cricket on Saturday.

With all matches being played

in blustery, and initially damp,

conditions at Mandeville Sports

Grounds, bowling became

increasingly difficult as the day

went on for all teams.

After winning their opening

two games a fortnight ago,

Weedons lost to an understrength

Leeston-Southbridge

by five wickets and then lost to a

surging Oxford by six wickets.

Weedons’ stand-in captain,

Charlie Robson said his toporder

made starts in both games

but failed to make the most of it.

“We had four or five guys all

make starts but then they got

out.

“We started the day batting

in a bit of rain which changed

the pitch conditions but we still

should have done better.

“We have to try to do better at

the crease and give our bowlers

more runs to play with because

we are capable of doing better

and have shown that when we

score runs we can compete,” he

said.

Leeston-Southbridge were able

to chase down their 105-run

target against Weedons thanks

to an unbeaten 47 from Sam

Chamberlain.

Leeston-Southbridge captain

Toby Doyle said his bowlers kept

a tight line against Weedons and

really restricted the scoring opportunities.

“I thought we kept our discipline

and made them work for

our runs and then got the nice

contribution from Sam to get us

home,” he said.

It was Oxford second win of

the day after they had beaten

Lincoln by 36 runs in their

opening contest.

Lincoln did bounce back to

beat Leeston-Southbridge by

113-runs in their second match

thanks to 60 from Arthur Paterson

and 50 from opener Joe

Williams.

Paterson then took four for 12

with the ball as Lincoln easily

defended 172 by bowling the

defending champions out for

just 59.

Darfield had a win and a loss

in their two games, beating

Southbrook by 11 runs after

defending 124 but they were

comfortably beaten by Sefton by

60 runs in game two.

Round eight of the 45-over

competition will conclude

the pre-Christmas action on

Saturday with competition

leaders Leeston-Southbridge

travelling to play Lincoln,

Southbrook will host Weedons,

Darfield welcome Sefton and

Oxford will travel to Cheviot.

Rain frustrates

Canty Country in

Hawke Cup clash

• By Jacob Page

RAIN HAS made Canterbury

Country’s quest for a Hawke

Cup challenge later this

summer that much tougher

after it all but washed away

their opening qualifying game

against Buller in Westport.

Just 46 overs were possible

on Saturday with Country

progressing to 198 for three

on the back of Ben Hartland’s

unbeaten 115.

However, no play was possible

on day two which means the

points were shared.

Country would have been

hoping for at least a first innings

victory to kick-start their

campaign after they beat Buller

outright in convincing fashion

last season.

Canterbury Country coach

Michael Sharpe said his team

had hoped to win the toss and

bowl so they could try to use

their strong bowling attack

to dictate the game with wet

weather looming.

When that did not happen,

they chose to bat positively and

then declare early on day two.

“The weather won-out and

there was always the potential

of that,” he said.

“I thought Ben Hartland’s

shot selection throughout his

innings was excellent and all the

batsmen tried to be positive.

“We were hoping we would

get a chance to bowl at them but

it was not to be.

“It means two first innings

wins are crucial for us against

Nelson and Marlborough.

Canterbury Country’s next

Hawke Cup encounter will be at

Mainpower Oval against Nelson

on December 21 and 22.

Sharpe said no decision

would be made on which, if any,

of the Canterbury representative

players may be available for

the game against Nelson.

“Fortunately, we have good

depth this year so hopefully

we will be in a good position

regardless of who is available,”

Sharpe said.

TOP KNOCK: Ben Hartland’s 115 wasn’t enough to help

Canterbury Country beat Buller after rain meant both teams

shared the points in their Hawke Cup contest in Westport

over the weekend.

Garden expo

draws the

crowds in

West Melton

The West Melton community was

treated to an entertaining garden-themed

afternoon when the West Melton Garden

Club hosted the first Selwyn Garden Expo

on Sunday, December 1.

Held at the recently completed West

Melton Community Centre, the expo

aimed to showcase the Selwyn and nearby

areas, promote gardening, and bring the

community together.

Hats, paintings, calendars, sculptures,

tools, landscaping, plants and garden

supplies were among the range of products

eagerly snapped up at the 45 stalls, while

the three demonstrations – Southern

Woods: tool maintenance and care, Joany

McNeill: floral demonstration and Magic

Moss: Kokodama balls & living vases,

attracted plenty of interest from the crowd.

Keynote speaker was author and former

editor of NZ Gardener, Lynda Hallinan.

The inclusion of specialty foods, and a

few things other than strictly gardening

added variety, says the garden club’s

president Anne Finch.

“With approximately 530 people

attending the expo, the community centre

was buzzing, both inside and outside, with

enthusiastic and happy people checking

out the stalls, purchasing the beautifully

presented goods, enjoying afternoon tea in

the ‘café’ run by our garden club, listening

to the music in the background, taking

in new information and of course having

and listen to Lynda Hallinan.

a good laugh with our main speaker,

Lynda Hallinan,” Anne says.

“Organising the event was a ‘first’ for

the 10 committee members. We have

learnt so much along the way, found

so many new ventures in the local and

nearby areas, made new friends, and had a

lot of fun. The end result has left us feeling

thrilled with the results, and the very

positive feedback from both attendees

and stallholders, who described it as ‘very

well-organised, and ‘such a fun afternoon’.

“We owe a huge thanks to all our

supporters, whom we could not have done

without, and we sincerely hope they all

had a successful and fun day too.”

West Melton remain

unbeaten in Country tennis

• By Jacob Page

WEST MELTON

continued their unbeaten

run in Country premier

tennis by easily beating Tai

Tapu 13 matches to three

on Saturday,

Tai Tapu had been

expected to put up a better

showing but West Melton’s

men’s singles players in

particular, were ruthlessly

efficient.

Rolleston Killinchy accounted

for a struggling

Fernside by the same

13-3 match scoreline at

Rolleston while Kirwee-

Springston beat Prebbleton-Lincoln

by 10 matches

to six at Lincoln.

Ellesmere Tennis president

Jason McKenzie said

the West Melton foursome

of Luke Tanner, Connor

Brosnahan, Max Aldridge

and Blake Cullen all but

ended the contest when

they won the first four

singles contests at West

Melton.

“Luke has been one of

the most consistent players

this year and he is competing

at the national 16s

tournament in Auckland

this week which will be

good for him.

“Blake Cullen is another

ROLLESTON Primary

School’s Lucia Gale

has impressed at the

New Zealand junior

tennis championships

at the Scabro Centre in

Auckland.

The Cashmere club

player was competing in

the 12s age-group. Lucia

and her Auckland-based

partner Jamie Mackenzie

won the mixed doubles in

convincing fashion.

The top-seeded duo

dropped just two games

in their three matches and

won the final 4-0, 4-0 in

37min against No 2 seeds

Max Richardson and

Chelsea Wijntjes.

She made it to the semifinals

of the singles where

she lost to Mahinarangi

Warren 4-6,-3-6 but she

did bounce back to win

the play-off for third by

beating Chelsea once

again, 6-3, 6-0.

Lucia then teamed with

clubmate Ruby McPhail

in the doubles and lost a

tough semi-final against

Chelsea and her partner

Xin Xin Zhu 6-3, 4-6, 7-10.

Her coach James Meredith

said he was thrilled

with the results and he

hoped with another year

strong men’s singles quartet which helped his team

beat Tai Tapu 13-3 in Canterbury Country premier

tennis on Saturday. ​

who is a real up-and-comer,”

he said.

“Fernside are struggling

for depth this year but they

keep fielding a team each

team each week.’’

Rolleston-Killinchy’s No

1 Nathan McKenzie won

both his singles, double

and mixed doubles ties, as

did No 2 Ben Michael.

Lucia Gale impresses

at junior nationals

STAR: Rolleston Primary School’s Lucia Gale won a

national mixed doubles title and earned two semifinal

places at the national junior championships in

Auckland last week. ​

Jason McKenzie said

Kirwee-Springston’s doubles

specialist Dave Ashton

made a big difference in

their win over Prebbleton-

Lincoln.

The fourth and final

week of matches before

Christmas will see Tai

Tapu travel to Fernside,

at Springston and

Prebbleton-Lincoln

welcome West Melton to

Prebbleton.

in the age-group in 2020,

she would be able to push

for the title.

“She is quite slight, so

some of the older girls are

able to control the points

by being more physical

and using more spin,” he

said.

“As she grows, we’ll keep

working on it and try to

build her serve up as well

because there are a few too

many double-faults for my

liking but that’s quite common

at this grade.”

Lucia will now represent

New Zealand at the Tennis

Australia nationals in

Melbourne which start

today. It will be her fourth

time representing New

Zealand overseas in 2019.

“It’s a good chance

for Lucia to test herself

against international

opposition and try to improve

her all-round game

ahead of a busy summer,”

he said.

Come and see Santa in Prebbleton

Christmas is not just about receiving but

also giving and helping those in need.

This year the Prebbleton Cottage will

be transformed into Santa’s House.

Bring the kids along to meet Santa and

his friends, and help Santa to get lots

of goodies together for City Mission.

Each year the need grows for many

families, and as Christmas draws closer

City Mission is struggling to keep up

with demands. City Mission is especially

asking for things like canned food,

pasta, cereals, biscuits and toiletries.

So come down to the Prebbleton

Cottage on the corner of Blakes and

Springs Road, Friday 13 and Saturday

14 December between 4:30-7:30pm.

Let the children experience the

wonder of Christmas and help them

understand that Christmas is just as

much about giving as well as receiving.

PARADE & MARKET

Sat

14TH

Dec

SELWYN TIMES

Santa is coming to

This year’s Lincoln Christmas Parade

and Market held on Saturday 14

December is expected to be bigger and

better than ever before. The popular event

promises to attract thousands of visitors

to the township, and along with the

growing population, it will likely be the

busiest day of the year in Lincoln.

Markets galore

The day kicks off with the market in full

swing by 9 am with stalls stretching along

the main street from The Famous Grouse

to The Laboratory. The main street is

closed for the event so there will be plenty

of space to explore the stalls with many

food options also available for

snacks and drinks

until the parade clears the street at 10.30

am.

The Lincoln Farmers and Craft Market

will also be in its normal location next

to the Lincoln library, spilling out onto

the green behind, so get in early for

your Christmas presents from the wide

variety available to choose from such as

handmade arts and crafts, plants for the

garden, treats for Christmas day, and

much more. The Lincoln Rotary Club

and the Lincoln Volunteer Fire Brigade

will also be there running raffles and

interacting with the crowds.

Entertainment for everyone

The atmosphere will be buzzing with

the Ellesmere Big Band playing from 9.30

am until 12.15 pm outside

the Lincoln Japanese Sushi

Bar. Music in the parade will

include the Woolston Junior

Brass Band, the Ellesmere

Highland Pipe

Band, whilst the

Woolston Concert

Brass Band will perform at 11.30 am on

the green behind the library.

The popular decorated bikes

competition will be held under the oak

tree next to the Library—be there by

9.45am for judging at 10am followed by

all bikes joining the parade. This year the

junior buskers’ competition ‘Lincoln’s

Got Talent’ will be held next to the Fish

& Chip Shop and to keep the kids happy

throughout the event the bouncy castle

will be set up on the grass behind the

Laboratory. Crazy clown Adam Allsorts

will also be entertaining the kids on

Adam’s crazy bike and giving away animal

balloons around the town from 10am till

12 noon.

Look out for Santa and your

friends

The Lincoln Christmas Parade is one

that you can get up close and personal

with and wave to the people you know

a wonderful

festive season.

Forget about

weeds

– plant

without fuss

GARDENING IN pots is a

spectacularly rewarding and low

labour hobby.

Instead of battling the

elements, treating tired old

soil, weeding and digging

frantically, you simply tip the

prepared perfect potting mix

into the container, follow it up

with the plants, water and

wait.

It’s hard to go wrong. You just

move the pot around until you’ve

found the perfect sunny or shady

spot, without disturbing the

root system, because a container

garden is portable.

You can move it about

your home, patio or garden to

fill bare spots at any time of

year.

And best of all, when you

move house, you don’t have to

leave your cherished garden

behind – they all shift with the

furniture.

Furthermore, container

gardens look great anywhere.

Spruce up your deck area with

WHETHER YOU’RE going away

or staying put, the prospect of

watering the garden – container

plants in particular – can put a

real dampener on your summer.

The easy answer would be to

just put all container plants into

the garden and be done with the

fussing.

However, there’s no denying

that a few well-chosen container

plants bring a decorative flourish

to bland deserts of paving and

deck.

They are invaluable, too, for

standing like bouncers beside

entrances or enhancing the end

of some clever vista you have

carved out of your plot.

However, as plant

accommodation, rather than

providing a luxury getaway, pots

and containers are more like a

prison sentence, with water and

food limited and excess sun and

wind in exposed locations.

This means you need to be

cunning with your compost and

a wizard with your choice of

green matter.

Why is it that weeds can abseil

their way into a pot and look

so healthy while the plant you

intended to shine on its glazed

pedestal looks anaemic and

spindly?

It’s because most of us are

unrealistic about the level of

maintenance we will need to

lavish on our charges.

It’s tempting to go for

multi-coloured pot plants

but such high-octane

performance demands the

pampering of a movie star –

weekly deadheading and feeding

and almost daily watering, so

it’s really only for the keenest

enthusiast.

Spring bulbs are another

classic disaster area – irresistible

when we see the pictures at the

garden centre but a disaster a

fortnight after the party is over

when we fail to follow up after

of the year have flopped and

faded.

out they go to make way for a

more permanent successor. It is

a mistake to assume special new

plants somehow deserve a prime

spot in a container right outside

the Ranchsliders.

Plant them in the ground

where they will get their roots

down and draw deep for summer

moisture instead. And if you

want to see them go out in to the

container plants

If your soil is heavy, spend some

effort planting them on mounds

and improve soil structure with

plenty of grit and compost.

The most successful pot plants

are tried and tested toughies that

will survive on neglect. Essentials

include succulents, flaxes, native

xeronema and epiphytic plants,

which are used to hanging out like

a shoestring.

Epiphytes include spiky astelias

as well as other native foliage

plants such as Griselinia lucida

and pseudopanax – both of which

are amazingly drought-tolerant.

Don’t mingle too many specimens

in one confined space

because fights are bound to break

out. Instead, give each its own

home but herd pots together to

create communities of contrasting

forms and textures.

As with your wardrobe there will

always be the classics that never go

out of fashion and which form the

backbone of your collection. Succulents

are foolproof.

Choose the dramatic ones such

as aloes and softer euphorbias

or those which are able to bungy

over the sides of even the tallest of

drums.

One such is Sedum morganianum

with its waxy grey dreadlocks.

Neat topiary balls, cones and

HARDY: The most successful

pot plants are those that

survive on neglect.

humps, whether it be box or native

coprosma and corokia, have

minimal water requirements, but

don’t discount conifers which are

surprisingly drought-tolerant.

Bromeliads never outgrow

their place in a pot if sited

sensitively.

What is trending for 2020

FASHIONS COME and go, and

changes in climate and lifestyle

influence our gardens just as

they affect other parts of life.

So it’s fun to try and predict

the outdoor trends for this year.

Here are some suggestions:

•Organics will rule. The trend

to organics will accelerate and

most gardeners will be looking

for natural-based fertilisers

and low toxic pest controls.

Fortunately, organic products

have become mainstream

so that gardeners no longer

have to lug home leaking bags

of manure purchased at the

farm gate. Neat packets of

pellets are the modern day

equivalent. Pellets have all the

organic credentials of farm

gate manures, but they’re much

easier to handle and distribute.

The manure’s also been

composted to remove harmful

pathogens.

•Food plants are in. It’s

everyone’s ambition to have

a vegetable garden, but time

constraints often get in the way.

However, even the smallest

garden can find room for a herb

pot. Choose a shallow container

and a quality potting mix.

DUAL PURPOSE: A pond

with a fountain will also

double as a bird bath.

Beginners can start their herb

garden with a pot of chives.

They’re probably the easiest

herbs to grow, and they tolerate

a fair amount of neglect.

•Edible gardens are in but

in smaller spaces. Dwarf fruit

trees in fashionable containers,

and small-growing vegetable

varieties are popular even for

larger gardens. Yates has found

that sales of seeds for compact

veges such as dwarf beans,

silverbeet and mini tomatoes

are increasing.

•Flowers in the garden will

hit the comeback trail. Strappyleafed

plants and foliage plants

will still be in favour but their

dominance will start to fade.

A nostalgic hankering for

flowering plants is beginning

to surface. Plants that straddle

both categories (daylilies, dwarf

agapanthus and Tulbaghia,

also called society garlic, are

good examples) will lead this

resurgence.

•Water (or lack of it) will be

one of the biggest gardening

challenges. Look out for plants

that survive in schools, parks

and old houses. Cistus (rock

rose), Indian hawthorn and the

native mirror plants (Coprosma

spp) are some of these tough

survivors. Water features,

because of their cooling effect,

will be found in just about every

garden. Examples will range

from small, simple water bowls

to elaborate, Italian-inspired

fountains.

Wine

Red wines to enjoy in the warm weather

• By Mark Henderson

FOR RED wine lovers pinot noir

can be the ticket to happiness on

hot days.

Drunk cool, not cold, their

wonderful fragrance and lighter

frame can be exhilarating rather

than exhausting.

2017 Villa Maria Platinum

Selection Organic

Marlborough Pinot Noir

Price: $29.99

Rating: Very good to excellent

Bright and juicy nose, dusty

smoky notes, tar, lead pencil and

savoury nuances. Savoury notes

continue on the stony minerally

palate with juicy, tangy red

berryfruit. A refreshing vein of

coolness runs through this. Time

sees the stony, grainy tannic

backbone become more evident

with a tangy sweet ‘n’ sour note

on the nose.

Better with food for now.

www.villamariawines.com

2017 Tohu Whenua Awa

Single Vineyard Awatere

Valley Pinot Noir

Price: $41.99

Rating: Very good to excellent

Bolder, darker fruits and bonfire

embers: red fruit fragrance

and savoury notes evolve with

time. Powerful in the mouth,

depth and concentration mixing

savoury characters with

a saline hint. The fruit sways

across the plum, blueberry and

cherry spectrum with spice and

oak notes in support. Relatively

grippy tannins for now.

A powerfully rendered style

that shows potential.

www.tohuwines.co.nz

2017 Tohu Whenua Matua

Single Vineyard Upper

Moutere Pinot Noir

Price: $34.99

Rating: Excellent

An alluring perfume leads

the nose, followed by dried

strawberry, spice and savoury

elements. Silky entry before the

tannins flood in: the strawberry

and red cherry fruit dancing

on the palate. There’s a playful,

juicy crunchiness, a little hint of

stalk/herbs, while the structure is

there without intruding.

A delightfully long finish, the

flavours hang in the mouth.

www.tohuwines.co.nz

2017 Craggy Range Aroha

Te Muna Pinot Noir

Price: $150

Rating: Excellent to outstanding

Leads with stewed fruit/

rhubarb before a wonderful

perfumed florality develops

and grows. A sweet fruit core,

wrapped in some whole bunch

stalk notes, wild herbs and

savoury influences. Brightness

from the acidity, underlying

chewiness from the tannins yet

increasing silkiness as it opens

up. Flows to a marvellously long

fruit and savoury-filled finish.

Superb potential.

www.craggyrange.com

2017 Vergence Red by

Pegasus Bay

Price: $40

Rating: Very good to excellent

Opaque, dark colour. Brooding

nose of pencil lead & bramble,

evolving to fragrant dried herbs

with a sweet fruited underlay.

Powerful and sweetly fruited

palate with plum, liqueur fruits

with a delightful dried herb note

hanging on the finish. Pinot on

steroids with chewy tannins: lots

of ingredient here.

Maybe not for pinot classicists

yet fascinatingly different.

www.pegasusbay.com

2018 Sacred Hill Single

Vineyard Marlborough

Pinot Noir

Price: $27.99

Rating: Very good to excellent

Fragrant nose with strawberry

and fruit yoghurt influences. The

pale colour belies the surprising

palate weight, continuing

the pattern of the nose, adding

wild herbs and a sweet ‘n’ sour

tanginess. This builds in weight

with aeration, adding structure,

the sweet fruit flowing to a little

warm glow on the close.

Crowd pleasing and very easy

drinking.

www.sacredhill.com

2018 Jules Taylor

Marlborough Pinot Noir

Price: $34.99

Rating: Very good to excellent

Bold and bright nose with

ripe (almost liqueur) fruits, wets

stone and dustiness, shifting

to rhubarb. A cherry fruit core

allied to chalkiness and stony

minerality.

Playful and exuberant, with

appealing vivacity, and while

the underlying structure builds

and tightens, it is likely to be at

its best drunk youthfully, paired

with appropriate food.

www.julestaylor.com

2015 Riverby Estate

Reserve Marlborough Pinot

Noir

Price: $35

Rating: Excellent

Subtle yet attractively

perfumed with oak spices, pencil

shavings, dried cranberry and

tangy nuances. The palate is

open and fleshy, mixing cooler

cranberry & currants with darker

fruit notes along with lavender

and dried herbs. Nice balance, a

juicy brightness and refreshing

salivatory aspect to the close.

Heaps of enjoyment, gorgeous

now.

Plenty of kudos for Holden’s big Acadia

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

HOLDEN’S ACADIA didn’t win

the 2019 New Zealand Motoring

Writers’ Guild car of the year

award. That trophy went to

Jaguar’s fully electric I-Pace.

Nevertheless, Holden New Zealand

and General Motors should

be buoyed that its big seven-seat

sport utility vehicle was a finalist.

It went up against some pretty

tough competition – three electric

cars and other notables.

Collectively, I don’t know

where Acadia finished in the

standings but it certainly scored

well in my own personal tally of

points for the COTY.

The big United States built

SUV is doesn’t have a lot of

competition here, sure Toyota’s

Highlander and Jeep Grand

Cherokee are well established but

the Acadia has presence, it is bold

and captures imagination with its

styling that is just a little out of

the mainstream.

The Acadia comes out of the

GMC stable, GMC is an off-shoot

of the giant General Motors conglomerate

that focuses primarily

on trucks and pick-ups. However,

the Acadia distances itself

from the ute market, it is built

on a sophisticated monocoque

floorpan with fully independent

suspension.

HOLDEN ACADIA LTZ-V: Four-wheel-drive provides

substantial cross-country ability.

Under the bonnet sits a 3.6-litre

V6 petrol engine which is rated

at 231kW and 367Nm, these

healthy outputs are realised tall

in the rev band at 6600rpm and

5000rpm respectively. If you

think these figures look familiar,

it’s pretty much the same power

plant that is fitted to the rangetopping

ZB-series Commodore.

The Acadia also gets the same

transmission, it’s a nine-speed

unit that is characterised by

smooth shifts and ratios which

ease the load on the engine so

that respectable fuel economy can

be gleaned.

Because of its size, and weight

(2032kg), the Acadia needs as

much benefit in this department

as it can get. Holden rate it with

a 9.3-litre per 100km (30mpg)

combined cycle rating. By my

reckoning that’s achievable, the

test car was constantly listing

around 10.8l/100km (26mpg),

taking into consideration I did

a lot of around the city driving

which is never conducive to good

economy results.

On the highway the engine

lopes over gently at 1500rpm

at 100km/h in top gear, using

fuel at an instantaneous rate of

7.8l/100km (36mpg).

The Acadia is also a useful offthe-seal

traveller. It lands in both

two-wheel-drive and four-wheeldrive

variants. The test car was the

top spec – LTZ-V, and although

the driveline won’t get to places a

low ratio set-up will take you, the

mechanicals are perfect for low

grip situations such as the skifield

access road, tackling the tracks

leading into those high country

lakes, or taking the boat to the

slipway. For the record, the Acadia

has a 2000kg tow rating and a

203mm ground clearance figure.

It also travels with compliant

suspension travel. Unlike US

vehicles of the past which have

been quite soft in the suspension,

the Acadia’s spring and damper

rates are definitely biased towards

moderate firming, yet comfort

isn’t compromised.

Pushed into a corner there is

just enough steering feel thanks

to beautiful Continental sport

tyres, and they are big at 235/55

x 20in. There is a lot of rubber

on the road and that promotes a

secure feeling of attachment.

Power out of a corner is vivid.

The quad-camshaft engine is a

howler, it works through the rev

band freely but you don’t have

to have it singing to the red line

to get performance, the torque

curve is just broad enough so that

it utilises the mid-range.

However, if you like to have it

breathing freely for a highway

overtake for example, it hunts to

the red line willingly, there was

never a point where I thought the

wrong gear was selected, the way

it arranges those nine ratios is

very clever. On the subject of performance,

the Acadia buyer can

expect a standstill to 100km/h

time of around 7.8sec.

• Price – Holden Acadia

LTZ-V, $71,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4979mm; width, 1916mm;

height, 1762mm

• Configuration – V6,

four-wheel-drive, 3649cc,

231kW, 367Nm, nine-speed

automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 7.8sec

• Fuel usage – 9.3l/100km

As mentioned, the Acadia

lands here in three specification

levels, each with the option of

four-wheel-drive. The entry-level

model lands at $49,990, while the

test car with its high grade trim

and 4WD sits at $71,990. For

that money it is comprehensively

equipped – and you’d expect

nothing less. It is very American

in the way it is trimmed and

it does get all the latest safety

technology that comes out of the

General Motors’ stable.

The Acadia makes no pretense

that it is genuinely American,

its styling is designed to capture

attention, and the luxury feel

inside takes me back to the best

vehicles that have come out of the

States in terms of build quality

and comfort.

However, the Acadia also gets

the benefit of the down under

input. Prior to its release here it

was tested vigorously across the

Tasman for our market. That

development shows, it is an

involving, spirited car that feels

very good to be in.

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

Replacing a roof

Roofs get the brunt of the weather so it is

not surprising they become tired. Nails wear

loose and the iron or tiles start to fade and

become patchy.

The decision to repair or replace a roof

which has deteriorated, depends on its

condition and also the budget. Replacing

nails and repainting the iron may be

sufficient. When a tiled roof, it can be a little

more involved.

Steve and Lyn’s orange metal tiled roof was

mossy, with damaged and dented tiles and

loose nails. They looked at the long-term

benefits of repainting compared to replacing

the roof. The latter option seemed more

time consuming with safety scaffolding still

needed and the roof cleaned and sealed for

moss before repainting, at a cost of $10,000-

$15,000. The expected life of the repainted

roof, approximately 10-15 years before more

maintenance would be required.

“We wanted a black roof to match the

window joinery. Repainting in a dark colour

would have highlighted any existing tile

damage. We also plan to install solar power

panels in the future so decided to reroof,”

explains Lyn.

Quotes for reroofing were sourced from

several companies with considerable

variance in the final price and calibre of each

quote. The highest quote only itemised what

was not included, failing to list details such

as roof pitch, amount of iron and timber

required, or whether the hire of scaffolding

was included. When refinancing to cover

a renovation, a bank is likely to request

detailed quotes.

The firm Lyn and Steve chose detailed

what was included, gave a timeframe and an

early start date (dependent on the weather).

Extras like the hire of edge protection

scaffolding (a legal requirement for people

working above a certain height) and the

removal and dumping the old iron and

timber were stated. Some spouting and

roof purloins were replaced before building

paper was laid and the new colour steel

corrugated iron fixed.

“Three or four workers were on the job

each day. They cleaned up as they went,

walking around the house picking up nails

and taking the rubbish away. I work from

home so they would tell me where on the

roof they’d be working each day, allowing

me to find a quiet spot away from the noise.

They even took photos of the new roof and

work undertaken for us to send to Council

to be kept on file,” says Lyn.

“They were efficient, safety conscious,

considerate and thorough. It was a quick

experience from the time we decided

to go ahead to completion. We’d highly

recommend them,” adds Steve.

Steve and Lyn are rapt with the final look

of their roof. The new colour steel roof is

modern, adding value to the house. They say

it also seems warmer and quieter.

Before deciding whether to repaint or

reroof, weigh up the options, source a

number of quotes and compare the details

provided then make a decision. Also look at

new houses to get ideas for colour schemes.
