Age no barrier

for this

world No 1

• By Gordon Findlater

COMPLETING AN ironman

at 70-years-old is impressive in

itself.

However, Tai-Tapu resident

Shirley Rolston is so accustomed

to the feat she backed up her latest

by competing in a half ironman

the following weekend.

On December 1, Rolston won

the women’s 70-74 age category at

the Ironman Western Australia.

She also broke the race record

in her category with a time of

15hr 43min 11sec over the 3.9km

swim, 180km bike and 42.1km

run.

She then flew from Perth to

Auckland before grabbing a

rental to car to drive south to

win the same category in the 70.3

Taupo half ironman in 7hr 23min

25sec on December 7.

Fatal

crash

car went

through

stop sign

• By Devon Bolger

THE CAR involved in a fatal

crash near Lincoln on Saturday

travelled through a stop sign, it

can be revealed.

One person in the vehicle died

and two others were critically

injured.

Constable Blair Croucher said

the vehicle was travelling east

along Tancreds Rd about 4.30pm

when it failed to stop at the intersection

with Ellesmere Rd, colliding

with a southbound vehicle.

“As a result of that, an occupant

of the eastbound car has died at

the scene and the two other occupants

of that same vehicle are in

critical condition in Christchurch

Hospital,” he said.

Constable Croucher would not

say if the people involved in the

crash were from the Selwyn district,

only saying they were from

Canterbury.

Two people in the vehicle

travelling south on Ellesmere Rd

escaped serious injury and were

taken to Christchurch Hospital

for observation.

from the editor’s desk

THE DISTRICT is riddled with

intersections. It is at these spots where

motorists are at their most vulnerable.

On Saturday, there was another major

smash, this time at the intersection of

Ellesmere and Tancreds Rds. The outcome

– one dead and two critical (see page 1).

A vehicle heading east on Tancreds drove straight through the

stop sign, collecting another vehicle heading south on Ellesmere

Rd.

The police investigation will hopefully determine why the

driver didn’t stop at the intersection. But that will be little

comfort for the person’s family, which face as grim a Christmas

as can be imagined.

But it’s not intersections which are dangerous – it’s the driver.

Always keep your eye out for what other motorists on the road

are doing.

District Plan

cost may blow out

• By Devon Bolger

THE REVIEW of the District

Plan is expected to exceed its

budget and reach a cost of $1.2

million for this financial year.

The plan is essentially the district’s

rule book on how land can

be used and developed.

The budget for the project

for the 2019/20 financial year is

$805,000.

A district council report said

that budget is expected to be

exceeded by about $400,000 in

order to deliver the new proposed

District Plan for notification in

April.

District council group manager

corporate services Greg Bell said

in spite of the extra cost, they will

continue with their plan for the

review.

“Additional costs are being

incurred because the dynamic

nature of the project means we

need to carry out additional work

on certain topics that are identified

during the project.”

Selwyn Times asked the district

council if this will affect ratepayers.

Mr Bell said:

“Although the

final position

will not be

known until

the end of the

financial year,

we do not anticipate

that the

Greg Bell

increased cost

of the project will have a direct

impact on future rate levels.”

The significance of the project

ONLY 20%

TICKETS REMAINING

to the future of the district means

that it is not a project they are

willing to short cut, he said,

The report presented at the

district council meeting last week

said the increase in cost is due

to additional workstreams being

undertaken.

“These were not anticipated

to be completed as part of the

review but were directed to be

undertaken by the District Plan

committee.

BLOW OUT:

The District

Plan review

may cost

$400,000

more than

budgeted. ​

“This has resulted in additional

cost than what was originally

planned for, in the order of $80-

100k for this 2019/20 financial

year alone,” the report said

In 2015, the district council

agreed to undertake a full review of

the District Plan which will lead to

the development of a new one.

As at October 31, $354,931

has been spent on a review of it

against a year to date budget of

$248,831.

In Brief

TRUCK CAUSES OIL SPILL

A mechanical fault in a truck

and trailer engine caused a 500m

oil spill along Main South Rd

between Burnham and Rolleston

on Tuesday. Rolleston chief fire

officer Cam Kenyon said the

vehicle’s engine blew which

created the spill at about 3.30pm.

The road had to be reduced to

one lane until about 6pm when

the oil had been cleared.

NO CUTS TO POLICE

Police stations in the district

will not lose officers to bolster

numbers in Rolleston. Mayor

Sam Broughton met with

Canterbury police last week to

discuss their plans for staffing.

He said they confirmed there

would be no loss of staff from

the other stations to allow

Rolleston to run 24-7 across

the district. “This is great

news for our smaller stations.

The work the police do in our

community is invaluable.”

Selwyn Times previously

reported the district’s policing

is currently being reviewed with

the major emphasis on planning

for a better-resourced station at

Rolleston.

No sign of calling it quits

• From page 1

Rolston is currently ranked No

1 in the world for her age group

over the ironman distance and

ninth in the half ironman distance.

However, she admits the

commitment to the endurance

racing does result in a sore body.

“You usually appreciate a massage

and depending if you run

the whole way your legs feel terrible,

but I’ve got to a stage where

I refuse to run the whole way

and being a race walker I can

walk as fast as I can run almost if

I’m tired,” said Rolston.

The effort in Western Australia

also qualified her for the Ironman

World Championships in

Kona, Hawaii, in October. It will

be her seventh time competing

at the event. This year Rolston

achieved her best result at Kona,

finishing fifth in her age group.

Competing in close to 50

ironman events, you would find

it hard to believe she didn’t do

her first until later in life. In

fact, she only began doing short

distance triathlons following the

birth of the youngest of her five

children.

“The ironman was basically a

challenge for my 50th birthday.

A friend informed me that

him and some his mates from

Dunedin, for their 50th birthday

MULTI-TALENTED: Shirley Rolston is also a national record

holder on the athletics track and in 24-hour running.

‘You usually appreciate a

massage and depending

if you run the whole way

your legs feel terrible’

– Shirley Rolston

the challenge was to do an iron

and he said to me: ‘Well you’re

a female, but you can do the

challenge to if you like.’ Of that

group of six or so, I’m the only

one still regularly doing ironman,”

she said.

Rolston resident is no stranger

to records outside of ironman

either. In 2016 she broke the

national women’s 65-69 24-hour

running record by completing

129.681km. Rolston also holds a

national 5000m track record in

the same age group.

As for when she plans to call

it quits on breaking age group

records Rolston says: “We’ll wait

and see, as long as I can.”

For now her focus is on

completing Ironman New

Zealand in Taupo in March.

Later that month she will take on

her next challenge by travelling

to Europe to walk the Camino

Frances trail which stretches

780km from French Pyrenees

to Santiago de Compostela in

Spain.

POLICE HAVE begun their

Christmas campaign to stop

drink driving in the district.

Sergeant Alex Pickover said

they see an increase in the behaviour

during this time of year.

“There are a lot of Christmas

dos and people on holiday

around this time and there are

people who do drink and drive,

we are catching people doing it.”

The campaign was launched

last week and will continue

throughout the Christmas and

new year period.

One of the key moves will be

is pulled over, Sergeant Pickover

said.

There will also be an increase

area, he said.

Sergeant Pickover said their

advice is if you are unsure

whether you are over the limit,

don’t drive.

“Just make other arrangements

or stay sober if you don’t have an

appropriate ride home.”

He said the campaign is about

spreading preventative messages

as well.

“If you’re caught under the

influence you’re disqualified from

driving, you run the risk of losing

your job, there’s a monetary fine

and you no longer have a means

of transport. It can cause a lot of

“It is just a timely reminder

Council U-turn on banning

roadside sale of cars

• By Devon Bolger

THE DISTRICT council

has done a U-turn on

banning the roadside

advertising of cars for sale.

You can now advertise

your vehicle for sale on the

road as long as it is within

20m of where you live.

The district council recently

undertook a review

of the traffic and parking

bylaw which led to a number

of proposed changes.

One of the amendments

would ban the roadside

advertising of vehicles for

sale which was allowed

in the former bylaw with

consent.

But a report that was

presented to district councillors

at a meeting last

week said this amendment

has now been changed.

“Following consultation,

this has been expanded to

allow the vehicle to be for

sale if parked outside the

place of residence and during

the normal use of the

vehicle.

District councillors voted

to adopt the new traffic

LEGAL: Advertising your car for sale on the road is

now allowed as long as it is within 20m of where

you live.

and parking bylaw at the

meeting.

Five submissions were

received during the public

consultation period for

the bylaw.

The main topic in four

of the submissions was the

amendment to the sale of

vehicles which submitters

opposed.

They were considered by

a sub-committee consisting

of councillors Mark

Alexander and Sophie

McInnes.

Dickson gets naked

to celebrate milestone

WEST MELTON’S Sam

Dickson celebrated his 50th

tournament for the All Blacks

sevens side in style by replicating

the naked celebration photo

which went viral after their

World Cup success last year.

This time it was Dickson going

starkers, with Kurt Baker - the

player who had the honour for

the original photo - holding

him aloft after the team’s 7-5

win over South Africa to win

the World Rugby Sevens Series

tournament in Cape Town.

The 30-year-old has been

an integral part of the New

Zealand sevens set up for a

number of years, part of the side

that claimed silver at the Commonwealth

Games in Glasgow

in 2014, going one better to win

gold on the Gold Coast last year.

He was also a member of the

aclandpark.co.nz

0800 ACLAND

New Zealand side that took part

in the Rio Olympics in 2016.

Dickson played his junior

rugby for West Melton before

playing first XV rugby for St

Thomas of Canterbury College.

After secondary school he

returned for West Melton and

played for a number of Ellesmere

and Canterbury Country rep

sides.

BATTLE: Wards

Rd resident

Grant Prescott

has now taken

his fight to the

Ombudsman’s

office.

Road fight goes to Ombudsman

• By Devon Bolger

THE DARFIELD man battling

the district council over his

unsealed road has now taken his

fight to the Ombudsman’s office.

Grant Prescott represents 14

residents on Wards Rd who have

been lobbying for the road to be

sealed between Charing Cross

and Greendale Rd.

In his complaint, he said the

district council needs guidance

on the complaints process and

disciplinary action should be

taken against some staff.

Selwyn Times reported Mr

Prescott’s claims against the district

council last month.

It came after a report into

Wards Rd said its condition is

“average” and there were no

Canterbury’s fastest selling

new subdivision

potholes.

Mr Prescott said that statement

and data is “misleading” and

“incorrect.”

“It appears to be a selective partial

report which is abhorrent,”

he said.

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

of unsealed roads” he said.

Street barbecue a success

A NEIGHBOURHOOD

barbecue on Ritso St in

Darfield attracted almost

every resident of the street.

Resident Michael

Schionnemann organised

the event to bring people

who live on Ritso St together.

“It was great to see the

whole neighbourhood

coming together for a great

Christmas party. Nearly

the whole street turned

up,” he said.

Mayor Sam Broughton

stopped by to spend some

time at the event.

“We showed him what

we have been doing to

the house and he had a

chance to talk to a few of

our neighbours. We had

a really good talk,” Mr

Schionnemann said.

Mr Schionnemann said

it was a great experience

for all involved.

“We have been in Darfield

just over a year and

we have found that people

in this little town has been

very friendly and helpful.”

Mr Broughton said it was

really nice to meet some

of the residents of Ritso

Street.

“It’s a very friendly street

enjoyed by young and old.

Michael and Yvette have

put a lot of love into their

home and were the hosts

for the event.

“With many new people

having made Selwyn their

home over the past year a

street barbecue is a great

way to get to know your

neighbours and make new

friends.”

A big shout out to

all the grandparents

ALTHOUGH NANS deserve all

the praise the headline alludes

to, to be honest this is more a

shout out to Vittoria’s Nan.

It’s not news having young

kids presenting a hurdle getting

to things you want or need to

do.

I mean, your call, but having

an erratic, wilful and tantrumprone

third wheel or work

assistant isn’t ideal, and it’s worse

when they’re a toddler.

So I’m eternally grateful for

my mum’s help over the last

week with some bubs-watching

(and obviously all the other

times before that she, my stepdad

or dad have helped us out

immeasurably beforehand). I

mean it’s not the first time by

any means, but it’s my first column

about it.

Not only did she watch

Vittoria at her place for a full

day for me last week, but she

also came to ours and watched

Vittoria yet again on Monday so

Laura and I could complete the

goal of one date a month over

the year.

While we enjoyed the sort

of time to ourselves you never

really appreciate in those B.C.

(before children) years, Vittoria

was busy exploring, playing or

getting the sort of treats only a

nan will give.

In one day with Nan, Vittoria

had her first homemade

play dough, walked dogs, got

ice cream, ‘helped’ around the

house, read books and burned

through clothes by playing with

a bucket of water. So thank

you very much mum, you are

awesome. I fully expect I’ll be

churning through my goodwill

points and your patience with

plenty more grand-babysitting

in future.

In more tinsel-tinged news,

we’ve got Vittoria’s Christmas

presents ready and wrapped.

Well, Laura’s got them wrapped,

I just provided encouragement

from the sidelines. You’d know

why if I’d ever wrapped a gift for

you.

No spoilers here, you’ll have to

wait if you really want to know

what she’s getting. I can’t risk

letting the cat out of the bag in

the insanely slim chance Vittoria

VITTORIA

& Matt

FUN: Water and buckets combine to excite Vittoria.

learns to read between now and

Christmas.

The last thing I need to arrange

is Vittoria’s Christmas stocking

and organise the logistics on how

Father Christmas is going to fill it

on Christmas Eve. He’s not visited

this house yet, so I’d best get a plan

ready for him.

I also better let Vittoria know

that Santa’s old school and

would prefer stout and a pie to a

glass of milk and biscuits when

he gets here.

•Former Star Media

journalist Matt Salmons

has become a stay-athome

dad. We follow his

journey weekly

BACKYARD CRITTERS

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in

entomology (insects and other invertebrates). Each

week he introduces a new species found in his

backyard at Lincoln. His column aims to raise public

awareness of biodiversity, the variety of living things

around us. Check out the full list of invertebrates

found at www.inaturalist.org/projects/backyardbiodiversity-bugs-in-my-lincoln-section

Moth not to be

confused with a wasp

LAST WEEK I saw my first

currant clearwing on our

property in Lincoln.

You would be forgiven for not

picking this as a moth as it looks

nothing like one unless you

check the darker wingtips under

a microscope for the tell-tale

scales.

The confusion is due to them

looking, sounding and behaving

like a wasp which helps protect it

from predators.

THeir mostly membraneous

wings, yellow and black stripes,

fan-like tail and buzz when

flying are distinguishing

characteristics of this species.

Four yellow bands on males and

only three on females help to

distinguish the sexes.

Known scientifically as

Synanthedon tipuliformis, this

day-flying moth is about 12mm

long and has a wingspan of 16-

20mm. The moth was accidently

introduced into New Zealand

from Europe and is also found in

Southern Australia and parts of

the United States.

Around December, adult

females lay an average of 100

eggs on buds, leaf scars and

pruning cuts on blackcurrants,

redcurrants or gooseberries and

two weeks later the larvae hatch

and burrow into the canes to eat

the pith.

Foraging by larvae hollow out

and weaken the canes, causing

a reduction in sap flow and

yields. No significant predators

for this pest are reported in New

Zealand.

FROM THE club triumphs, to

national records, selections and

personal accomplishments, it

was a big year for sport in the

district.

Southbridge claimed their

third title in four years with a 16-

12 win over Darfield at Prebbleton

Oval thanks to some resolute

defence in the final 10min.

The result also meant Darfield’s

113-year wait to win the

shield for the first time would

stretch at least one more year.

There was no Ellesmere team

in the final of the Country

Combined competition after

Glenmark-Cheviot beat Southern

in extra time in the final

after game was deadlocked at

31-all after 80min.

Darfield flanker Haigh Jebson

was named senior player of the

year at the annual Ellesmere

Rugby Awards in October.

Lincoln prop Isaac Roth was

named under-21 player of the

year after propping the Ellesmere

scrum to a Southbridge Shield

victory over North Canterbury.

Lincoln No 8 Sam Henderson

was named under-19 player of

the year.

Scott McIlroy was named

rugby personality of the year.

Kim Thackwell was recognised

for her long-time commitment

to rugby with both Prebbleton

and Ellesmere by being named

volunteer of the year.

Jebson capped a strong club

campaign with being a key

member of Ellesmere’s Southbridge

Shield winning team during

the representative season.

Lincoln Combined captain

and utility back Wil Gualter

was named in the New Zealand

schools’ team, the first such honour

for someone from Lincoln

High School.

The Lincoln Combined team

finished ninth in the UC Championship,

while they did earn a

spirited draw against competition

heavyweights, Christ’s College,

they struggled for consistency

throughout the season.

Broadfield beat Greenpark

A 63-50 in the Selwyn premier

netball final in September after

being the team to beat for much

of the season after qualifying

top-of-the-table.

The result was a level of

revenge after Greenpark A had

upset Broadfield by one goal in

the decider 12 months ago.

Leeston-Southbridge won both

the premier 45-over competition

and the twenty20 title in Canterbury

Country cricket.

Selwyn Swim Club’s Ella Benn

and Celyn Edwards each excelled

in the pool.

Benn broke the New Zealand

women’s S9 100m butterfly

record during the national shortcourse

championships at Auckland

in October. with a time of

1min 27.80sec.

Benn was also named female

para-swimmer of the year at the

Canterbury West Coast swimming

awards.

Edwards earned two top eight

international rankings in the

World Para-Swimming Championships

at the London Aquatic

Centre, in September.

He was New Zealand’s flagbearer

at the opening ceremony,

swam a personal best to finish

sixth in the final of the men’s

100m S8 backstroke with a time

of 1min 12.94sec.

He backed that up with eighth

in the 100m S9 butterfly final in

a time of 1min 09.03sec.

The multi-talented Lincoln

High School sports woman

Millie Thompson excelled at

multiple sports this year.

FINALLY: Broadield A won the Selwyn premier netball title 63-

50 over Greenpark A in September after they came up short by

one goal in the decider a year earlier.

WINNER: Southbridge captain

Luke Palmer holds up the

Coleman Shield after his team

hung on for a tense 16-12 win

over Darfield in the final at

Prebbleton Oval, in July.

Support for growing

tourism industry

More improvements to the district’s tourism infrastructure have been confirmed with government

support passing $1 million.

Two new public toilets have been confirmed to replace the existing toilets at Hororata Reserve and

Lake Coleridge, after the Council received a $332,600 funding grant from the latest round of the

Tourism Infrastructure Fund.

The district has now received $1.1 million in grants from the fund, including for public toilet and

waste water system upgrades. The district has also received $223,600 from the Responsible

Camping Fund to cover extra staff and campground maintenance over the summer season.

Council’s Open Space and Strategy Manager Mark Rykers says the funding is a boost to help the

district support the growing numbers of tourists visiting Selwyn.

“We’re pleased to have continued support from the government, which recognises the level of

tourist activity in the district. We work hard to try and ensure these visitors have a great time in

the district and we are very appreciative of this funding, which is an important investment for us

in this work.”

Both Hororata and Lake Coleridge have been among the centres in the district seeing that

increase in tourist and visitor numbers and the funding allowed the Council to bring forward its

plans to carry out needed upgrades to both toilet blocks.

The plan is to provide four unisex toilet stalls, including one with an accessible toilet, at Lake

Coleridge and five unisex toilet stalls, including one with an accessible toilet, at Hororata Reserve,

along with a new waste water system for the block.

The fund includes a contribution towards the running costs of the toilet blocks for two years and

the Council hopes to have both toilet blocks installed by the middle of 2020.

Festive feel for

citizenship ceremony

There was a festive atmosphere amid the celebrations for the final

citizenship ceremony of the year.

A group of 29 people from 11 different nationalities took the oath of

allegiance to become New Zealanders. They included new citizens

originally from Russia, Chile, Nigeria, Cambodia and the United

States of America.

In a festive touch, Mayor Sam Broughton broke out his guitar

for the singing of the national anthem, before leading the group

in two Christmas Carols, Silent Night and Feliz Navidad, to round

out the evening.

Several of the new citizens spoke of searching the world before

choosing New Zealand as a place to settle.

Thomas Lowton said he and his family were touring the world after

he retired from the British Army in 2012. “We landed in New Zealand

and we didn’t want to leave anymore,” he said.

Montana farmer and engineer CJ Johansson said he and his wife

were also searching the world for a place to make a new start after

he lost his job.

“We were looking for a place at least as nice as Montana. We found

New Zealand and it turned out we were right, it’s at least as nice

and we’re very happy living here and becoming citizens.”

Many of the group noted the warm welcome they had received

from their new country when they moved here, including eightyear-old

Megan Nelson, originally from South Africa. “Thank you for

welcoming us and letting us become New Zealanders. Thank you,”

she said.

It was the first ceremony back at the Council offices in Rolleston

after five months away with ceremonies at West Melton Community

and Recreation Centre and Tai Tapu Community Centre while work

was done on the Rolleston building.

Major district projects under way

Ground has been broken and work is on track on three major projects for the district.

Clean bill of health for drinking water

Selwyn’s drinking water has received a clean bill of health for complying with drinking water standards

under the Health Act – with more improvements to come.

The Council’s drinking water supplies were passed as complying with national drinking water standards

for dealing with bacteria and nitrate levels in the Canterbury District Health Board’s annual compliance

report. Nitrate levels were tested in four water supplies and all were found to be below the maximum

allowable levels.

The report showed 26 of the 27 water supplies tested were compliant with standards for E-Coli, with

Arthur’s Pass having one E-Coli transgression when levels of E-Coli passed the allowed levels. A new

treatment plant is planned for Arthur’s Pass next year.

The report found 17 of 27 supplies tested complied

with requirements around protozoa, but seven supplies

needed UV treatment upgrades. The Council has

completed two of the upgrades and has committed

to carrying out the remaining upgrades in the coming

year, Council Group Manager Infrastructure Murray

Washington says.

“It’s good to have the confirmation once again that our

drinking water is of good quality and potable, but work

is still needed to make sure we’re providing the best

systems we can and keep up with changing drinking

water standards. We have a major project of upgrades

happening this year at treatment plants across the

district, installing UV and filtration systems where they

are needed and expanding supply.”

Chamberlain stars for

Leeston-Southbridge

SPORT

SELWYN TIMES

• By Jacob Page

LEESTON-Southbridge can

relax over the festive break at

the top of country cricket after

a hard-fought close win over

Lincoln at the weekend.

Harry Chamberlain’s fine

Country premier one-day season

continued with a match-defining,

run-a-ball 62 at Lincoln

Domain on Saturday.

Leeston-Southbridge’s first innings

was dominant with 184 for

nine in their allotted 45 overs.

Chamberlain, who enjoyed a

500-run off-season playing in

Darwin, was again in the game

with the ball, grabbing key toporder

wickets and helping reduce

Lincoln to 34 for three in their

chase.

Middle-order batsman Liam

Robinson gave Lincoln a sniff of

victory, with a fine 51 off 89 balls.

After he was dismissed, the

tail wagged valiantly but the

defending champions held their

nerve to secure a 10-run win, as

Lincoln stalled at 174 for nine

after 45 overs.

At Southbrook Park, the home

side thumped Weedons by eight

wickets to keep in touch with the

competition leaders.

Imposing new ball attack Sam

Ermerins and Arafat Bhuiyan

knocked off Weedons’ quality

top-order before Darryn Boyle

rattled through the middle

order.

Limping to 132 all out in 40

overs, it was never going to be

enough and the ‘Brook coasted

home, largely thanks to an

impressive unbeaten 93 by Matt

• By Jacob Page

FOR THE second time in as

many years, the Lincoln High

School mixed touch team’s hopes

for a national title were dashed

by Howick College.

The Auckland school prevailed

in the final 12 months ago and

triumphed 6-4 in the semi-final,

at Rotorua’s Westbrook Park on

Sunday.

It was Lincoln High School’s

STAR: Leeston-Southbridge’s

Harry Chamberlain was

impressive with both bat and

ball in two fixtures for his club

team over the weekend.

Boyle, whose innings included

17 fours and two sixes, and came

off just 65 balls.

A mammoth innings of 165

from Rhys Mariu lifted Oxford-

Rangiora to a superb 26-run win

over Cheviot on Saturday.

Mariu, fresh from being

named in the 15-man New Zealand

under-19 squad to compete

in the Cricket World Cup 2020

in South Africa in January-

February, was ruthless in demolishing

the Magpies’ attack.

Oxford-Rangiora made an

imposing 279 for five in their 45

overs and would prove too many

for Cheviot to chase, in spite of a

brilliant 97 from Ben Hartland.

Jake Waghorn ripped through

Cheviot’s middle-order, snaring

seven wickets and helping complete

the strong victory.

first loss in seven games during

the tournament.

Howick College went on to win

back-to-back titles.

Lincoln won all three games

on day one convincingly, beating

Palmerston North’s Awatapu

College 11-4, Patea Area School

14-0 and Massey High School

9-3.

Day two went in a similar fashion

as they beat Orewa College

9-3, South Otago High School

Sefton got back to winning

ways with a complete team

performance in beating Darfield

by 37 runs.

Eight batsmen in double figures,

led by a quick-fire 40 from

Canterbury paceman Fraser

Sheat batting at number four,

saw the Seals post 202 all out.

Zak Foulkes (55 runs off 74

balls) and Tim Boyle (52 off 69)

got the chase off to a flying start,

hoisting Darfield to a commanding

115 for one in 24 overs.

But when they both fell in

quick succession, Darfield crumpled

to be all out for 165, with

Barry Cross the chief destroyer,

claiming four for 27.

The competition will resume

with round nine on January 11.

Leeston-Southbridge capped a

busy weekend by winning their

national club knockout twenty20

encounter against Pleasant Point

by eight wickets at Mainpower

Oval on Sunday.

Leeston-Southbridge restricted

Pleasant Point to 105 for nine

from their 20 overs with wickets

shared between Harry Chamberlain,

Tim Gruijters and Sam

Chamberlain, who each took

two wickets.

Harry then added an unbeaten

45 as they cruised to the target

with 11 balls to spare.

Leeston-Southbridge will play

Lancaster Park on January 19 in

the Canterbury final.

Canterbury Country will host

Nelson this weekend in their

second Hawke Cup match of the

season at Rangiora’s Mainpower

Oval.

Lincoln unable to recover from slow start

7-1 and Wanganui’s Cullinane

College 8-6 with the team holding

their nerve as the contest got

close.

Lincoln were unable to overcome

a slow start in the first half

to extract revenge from the loss

12 months prior.

They did win the second half

3-1 but by that point, the South

Island champions were too far

behind to make the comeback

they needed.

COMMANDING: Rolleston-Killinchy No 1 Nathan McKenzie,

seen here playing last month, won all three of his matches as

his team beat Kirwee-Springston 10-6 in Canterbury Country

premier tennis, on Saturday. ​

Rolleston-Killinchy

move up tennis ladder

• By Jacob Page

ROLLESTON-Killinchy moved

to second on the Canterbury

Country premier tennis ladder

after a 10 matches to six win over

Kirwee-Springston, on Saturday.

West Melton will go into the

Christmas break undefeated

after four rounds as they swept

aside Prebbleton-Lincoln 13

matches to three while Tai Tapu

had to default to Fernside due to

a lack of players,

Ellesmere Tennis president,

Jason McKenzie said he was

surprised by the ease of West

Melton’s win given how competitive

Prebbleton-Lincoln had been

during the second phase of the

season.

“It goes to show just how

strong West Melton is this year,”

he said.

“Even with players away they

still find ways to win,” he said.

It was Rolleston-Killinchy’s

women’s singles trio of Lyndsay

Dick, Mel Williams and Marika

Templeman which turned the

contest in their team’s favour.

With teammate Zoe Gilmore

struggling with a calf issue, the

trio won each of their singles

game, after the men’s singles had

been split 2-2.

Rolleston-Killinchy’s men’s No

1 Nathan McKenzie also had a

strong day, winning his singles

encounter against Dave Ashton

9-0 and then also winning his

doubles and mixed doubles

encounter.

West Melton’s No 1 Luke Tanner

was away at the nationals in

Auckland, but the competition

favourites welcomed home Grayson

Cullen.

“Grayson has been over in

America playing tennis on

scholarship and is back for the

Christmas break, McKenzie said.

Cullen has been playing his

tennis in Kentucky.

“He’s a very handy player to

call-in with Luke away, in many

respects, West Melton lose nothing

with him in the team.”

He was able to play with

younger brother Blake for the

day.

West Melton won all four

men’s singles with Grayson adding

a doubles and mixed doubles

PETS & PAWS

Keep pets safe over summer

Summer is the perfect time to get out and

about with your pets. And to help make

sure your pet’s summer gets off on the right

paw, SPCA offer the following tips…

• Hot hours The sun is at its

fiercest between 10am and 4pm,

so be extra vigilant with your

pet between these times. Keep a

close eye on pets that are older,

overweight, flat faced, or have thick

fur, who might struggle in the heat.

• Shade Make sure your pet has

plenty of shade and adequate

shelter to protect them from the

weather, including sun, wind, and

rain. Doghouses are not considered

good shade during the summer

as they can trap heat – utilise tree

shade or tarpaulins as they don’t

obstruct air flow.

• Water Pets need access to fresh

water, and in summer this is

crucially important. Pets should

always have clean water that is in

a shady spot. Remember to take

water and a travel water bowl on

summertime walks.

• Hot paws Hot ground can burn

the pads of your pet’s paws and

leave them sore, blistered and red.

Check if it is a safe temperature

for them to walk on by holding

the back of your hand on the

pavement or sand for five seconds.

If it is too hot for you to hold

your hand there, then your pet

shouldn’t be out walking on it!

• Sunburn Pets that are fair-skinned

or light-furred are particularly

susceptible to the sun’s harsh rays.

Skin cancer can occur commonly

in dogs and cats, so use petfriendly

(not human) sunblock

applied every three to four hours

to areas such as tips of ears, end of

nose, and stomach.

• Heatstroke The obvious signs

of a dog who is suffering heat

stroke are excessive panting and

showing signs of discomfort,

such as restlessness and shade

seeking behaviour. Cats will pant

and may have sweaty paws. More

severe symptoms include loss

of consciousness and seizures.

Any hot environment can cause

heatstroke, with hot cars being

a particularly dangerous place

for pets to be left alone in. A

body temperature of over 40°C

is often fatal.

BE AWARE OF RIVERS

AND WATERWAYS

Hot weather also brings with it the

dangers of algae blooms in still water or

shallow rivers, particularly after periods

of little rainfall. Check Council websites

for alerts about algae blooms in your

area or visit www.lawa.org.nz/exploredata/canterbury-region/swimming

GOING ON HOLIDAY?

Make sure your pets are adequately being cared for either in a pet care facility or

visited daily by a pet caregiver who will feed, exercise if required, and make sure your

pet/s have a plentiful fresh water supply and shade at all times.

Dogs die in hot cars

It takes just 15 minutes. If it’s hot outside,

it’s sure to be like an oven in your car and

that heat could be fatal for your dog...

If it’s hot and you’re likely to need to leave

your dog in the car, it’s kinder and safer to

leave it at home. Animals can sustain brain

damage or even die from heatstroke in just

15 minutes.

Changes recommended

for winter grazing practices

WE BUILD STRUCTURES & RELATIONSHIPS TO LAST

Warm & Healthy Affordable Homes

TRANSPORTABLE / 8 - 10 WEEK BUILD TIME OR BUILT ON SITE

A Taskforce has made 11

recommendations to improve animal

welfare in intensive winter grazing farm

systems, said Minister of Agriculture

Damien O’Connor.

“I established the Winter Grazing

Taskforce in response to concerns about

the impacts on animal welfare of some

intensive winter grazing practices,” Mr

O’Connor said.

“The Taskforce did a stocktake of the

multiple initiatives that are already under

way to promote good winter grazing

and identify where we might work more

together to improve practices.”

Recommendations include:

• More work to understand and

mitigate the long-term animal welfare

consequences of intensive winter

grazing practices

• Expand knowledge of barriers to

adopting improved animal welfare

practices

• More active surveillance to ensure

animal welfare standards are being met

• The establishment of a pan-sector

action group to implement the

recommendations

“Winter crop grazing is necessary in

some parts of the country to provide

enough feed for stock at a time when

there’s not a lot of pasture, but we must

ensure farmers have the right tools and

advice to ensure animal welfare.

“As a Government, we’re committed to

working alongside farmers to maintain

their ability to export on our valuable New

Zealand brand and open up new trading

markets. Our international reputation

depends on getting this sort of thing right,

as does our social licence to operate within

New Zealand.

“Some farmers manage this system very

well but for those who don’t – we’ve got to

find a way of doing it better and help them

do so.

“Following the taskforce’s report, I’ve

asked the Ministry for Primary Industries

(MPI) to work with farmers and industry

groups to ensure farmers get the help they

need.

“I know that many farmers are already

changing and adapting their practice and I

thank them for the effort. We want to help

in that work.

“The next step will be the establishment

of an action group to begin implementing

the recommendations so we can see some

progress next winter and beyond”.

ClearTech a game changer

for Lincoln dairy farmer

A revolutionary dairy effluent treatment

system is delivering enormous

environmental benefits for Lincoln dairy

farmer Tom Mason.

Ravensdown’s ClearTech system,

developed in conjunction with Lincoln

University, uses a coagulant to bind

effluent particles together to settle them

out from the water. This clarifying process

reduces freshwater use, helps existing

effluent storage go further and reduces the

environmental and safety risks linked with

farm dairy effluent (FDE).

Mason, who runs 550 cows on his

150ha operation at Green Park Dairy,

says ClearTech is an environmental

gamechanger. Given dairy effluent is

99% water, it makes commercial and

environmental sense to recycle the water

using the ClearTech system.

“We’re in a sensitive environmental area

here that is also quite densely populated,”

Tom says. “So, we were really looking for

the next level on environmental mitigation

and that’s what got us interested in

ClearTech.

“It has significantly increased our

effluent storage capacity. We’ve got

capacity at the moment that meets the

councils’ requirements, but we want more

than that and ClearTech gives us three

times the capacity and that means there

are fewer days we have to spread effluent.”

But it’s in freshwater conservation that

ClearTech really comes into its own.

“We’re using recycled water to wash

the cow yard each day and that’s at least

30,000 litres of water per milking that

we’re no longer using,” says Tom. “When

we’re milking twice a day, we’re saving up

to 60,000 litres of freshwater a day.”

With many lifestyle blocks in the area,

and heightened concerns about effluent

runoff and odour, Tom sees ClearTech

as being an investment in his ongoing

environmental and social licence to farm.

“We’re maintaining our right to keep

dairy farming here. There are real

pressures on this area, with subdivision

into lifestyle blocks, so we need to be

doing the right thing. ClearTech is an

important tool helping us to do that.”

ClearTech product manager Carl Ahlfeld

says the innovative, award-winning system

not only made environmental sense, but

commercial sense as well.

“Reducing compliance risks, saving on

pumping, effluent storage costs are the

bottom-line benefits to those farmers

who also want to do the right thing in

terms of reducing water use and reducing

environmental impact.

“ClearTech is ideal for dairy farmers

who want to save on effluent pond storage

and take back control of their capacity and

compliance.

“Stripping out the E. coli and other

bacteria in farm dairy effluent means

cleaner water to wash down the dairy yard

or irrigate on to paddocks and less volume

of effluent that has to be stored and used

safely. The nutrients in the effluent can be

reused back on to paddocks with minimal

Lincoln dairy farmer Tom Mason.

odour.”

The research behind ClearTech has been

published in internationally peer-reviewed

scientific papers (Cameron and Di:

Journal of Soils and Sediments, January

3, 2019: doi.org/10.1007/s11368-018-

Gardening

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

SELWYN TIMES

A sensational time to be in the garden

SUMMER IS here and it’s a

heavenly month to be in the

home garden.

Summer flowers are in full

bloom, harvesting the first

summer vegetables begins,

strawberries are growing heavily

with delicious crops and the bees

are buzzing.

Vegetable garden – Summer

salad vegetables planted in

early spring will now be ready for

harvest. Continue regular plantings

of ‘quick maturing’ vegetables

like dwarf beans and radishes

to ensure continuous harvesting.

Towards the end of December,

start mulching your developing

vegetables to help with the

retention of soil moisture and

control weed growth. Apply side

dressings of vegetable fertiliser

to ‘slow-maturing’ vegetables like

sweet corn and tomatoes. Early

planted potatoes can be dug up

for Christmas. Water your vegetable

plants when required and

‘deeply’ for the development of a

strong root system.

Flowering annuals –

Brighten up parts of the garden

and large containers by planting

‘classic’ summer flowering annuals.

These include ageratum,

cornflower, cosmos, marigolds,

petunias, portulacas, salvias,

strawflowers and zinnias. Prepare

new flower-beds thoroughly

by adding generous amounts

of compost to the existing soil

before planting.

Strawberries – The homegarden

strawberry patch should

be at its peak in December.

Place pea straw, hay or crushed

bark around plants to keep the

strawberries clean. Cover the

patch with bird netting as birds

are rather partial to strawberries.

Water when required.

Fruit trees – The first of the

stone fruit, such as wilson’s early

plum, will start ripening towards

the end of the month. Ensure

new fruit trees planted this winter

receive careful attention with

regular watering, applications

of fertiliser and mulching with

crushed bark. They may also require

some light pruning to help

achieve the required shape.

Berry fruit – Boysenberries,

blackcurrants, gooseberries and

raspberries will be ripening by

mid-December. They will also be

producing significant new canes.

Some can be tied down while the

surplus can be removed.

Roses – Possibly the most

enjoyable month in the home rose

garden. Bushes are in full bloom

and the dreaded die back and rust

diseases have not yet impacted

plants. It’s important to continue

LUSH: Avoid

mowing your

lawn too low over

summer.

‘dead-heading’ ie the removal

of finished flowers, to ensure

continuous blooming. Apply side

dressings of rose fertiliser.

Herbs – With the increasing

temperatures, herbs will be

thriving in December. More than

one plant of frequently used herbs

may be required in the home

garden e.g. basil, chives and parsley.

Where possible, site the herb

garden near the kitchen for easy

access, even if they are in pots.

Lawns – Inspect lawns

regularly throughout December.

If there are dry conditions, they

may require irrigation. Apply

lawn fertiliser until the end of December

and then stop late summer/early

autumn. Avoid mowing

too low over summer.

Container gardens – With

smaller properties, containers

are an excellent means of creating

interest in the home garden.

Use them to cultivate flowering

annuals, grow salad vegetables,

or a herb garden. Always fill the

containers with fresh container

mix before planting.

Preparing the garden for

summer holidays:

It’s traditional to have the main

summer holidays in January and

this can be problematic in the

home garden, especially in the

vegetable patch.

Sadly, vegetable gardens are

often abandoned at this time even

though these months are successful

for vegetable gardening. Careful

planning can include; harvesting

your vegetables before holiday

time (early planting), heavy

mulching of vegetables with pea

straw or crushed bark, installing

a timer on your irrigation system,

asking a neighbour to water your

vegetables while you are away and

replanting summer vegetables

when you return from holiday.

There are still at least three

months for the successful cultivation

of summer vegetables and

to enjoy the blooms of summer

flowering annuals.

From the team at Intelligro,

we want to thank you for your

continued support this year, and

your patience as the road works

continue around us. We wish you

all a very Merry Christmas and a

Happy New Year.

Quality and reliability

Generation Homes Christchurch are

known for their community involvement.

They have supported a number of

initiatives, including the renovation of the

St John Rolleston base and contributing

towards a new ambulance for Selwyn. This

year, they helped create a new bike park

at Knights Stream School in Halswell, and

were the sole naming sponsors for the

recent Diwali Festival.

The motto of Generation Homes

Christchurch is to be a company clients

can trust to build a modern, dry, warm

and healthy home, and one which will

stand the test of time.

Joint Venture Partners, Evan and Nadja

Beker are personally involved on a day to

day basis in the running of Generation

Homes Christchurch. They guarantee

an on-budget fixed price build with a

specified move-in date.

Their building process is in fourteen

stages with the client involved and guided

through the build, ensuring a stress-free

experience. You will be impressed by the

team’s commitment to the job. They look

after each and every client, making sure

their requirements and needs are met,

right down to organising site visits.

Generation Homes Christchurch are

recognised builders in the Selwyn area.

They have been involved in a number

of residential housing developments

in Rolleston. At Devon Green, they

constructed desirable affordable homes in

a setting which engendered a true sense of

community.

The company’s latest project in Rolleston

has been in Branthwaite where they have

already built a number of homes. Their

showhome at Branthwaite, has impressed

many viewers due to the attention to detail

and many desirable quality features which

have gone into this home.

At Halswell’s Copper Ridge housing

estate, Generation Homes are the preferred

builders. Already a third of the planned

106 lots covering 8.2 hectares have been

sold and the company’s first clients have

moved into their new homes. Sections at

Copper Ridge vary in size from 400sqm to

700sqm.

Generation Homes Christchurch have

a number of house and land packages

available: priced from $479,000 in

Rolleston and from $530,000 at Copper

Ridge in Halswell.

With Generation Homes Christchurch,

you are assured a quality finish, fixed

price contract and on-time delivery. This

gives you certainty over your life, living

arrangements and financial commitments.

They have a library of over 300 designs

and the capacity to adapt a design or start

from scratch. Their team always want to

help their clients create a home they will

love.

The Generation Homes team will

be taking a break from Monday, 23rd

December until Monday, 13th January.

Styling ideas for entertaining

Whether you’re setting the table for

two or 20, you can start to think about

some festive ways to tie everything in.

Like many of us, I adore entertaining

and making sure each guest feels

a certain magic when they enter a

room. Here are my tips that I hope will

help inspire you with your Christmas

Day styling. Wishing you all the best,

and much joy for the 25th.

1. Go big

A large table allows for more food, more

wine and more decor all adding to the vibe

of gifting and giving. Bring that outdoor

table inside, or hire in a couple of trestles

and set them side by side to create an extra

large tabletop. This allow ample room for

platters, water jugs, wines, nibbles, fresh

flowers, fruit and candles all to be set on

the table for your guests’ arrival.

2. Create abundance

It doesn’t have to be restricted to the bowls

of food. Allow the overflow of foliage

and fruit to spill out along the table by

incorporating fresh lemons, pomegranate,

olive branches and fresh herbs in

terracotta pots along the table. Magic.

3. Opt for stylish serving dishes

Bring in some new and different pieces

to present the food. Think slabs of wood,

large chopping boards, slate tiles and wire

baskets lined with linen for breads.

4. Develop a colour scheme

I’m a fan of the more earthy palette with

neutral tones found in linen napkins

and table runners, wooden furniture,

stoneware and then adding in accents

of gold, or cut crystal glassware for that

touch of elegance. If you want to use the

traditional colours, try something different

in a muted soft pink/red and pale sage

green over the bolder red and green.

5. Personalise your table

Adding name tags are a fun way to

welcome each guest to the table. Try

handwritten or stamped tags, painted

pebbles, or even gold pen written names

on wine glasses. Use natural over plastic

or synthetic where possible, it makes for a

more hand-made feel.

6. Add in a summery signature drink

Make a fun arrival cocktail and tie this

into your overall style for the day. It

will also add colour to the room. Try a

rosemary-infused holiday cocktail, wild

hibiscus champagne, Pimms or a rose with

raspberry and mint.

7. Ensure there is good lighting

As many celebrate the day with a

Christmas lunch, lighting often gets

forgotten. However, candles at a table, no

matter the time of day, always add that

warmth and festive glow. For an outdoor

setting, think hurricane lamps, votives and

jars of candles and for inside you can opt

for candlesticks, which take up less table

space and help create height. I’m currently

loving a natural beeswax or black taper

candle set in brass candlesticks, which

look stunning together with greenery on

a wooden table. Also you can never go

wrong with a pack of copper wire seed

fairy lights. Wind them into a garland of

fresh olive or pine branches and trail down

the table centre for a lush and sparkly look.

8. Remember the children

Growing up in our family, and well into

our teens, we were always seated on a

separate table with all the cousins at

Christmas. The table was complete with

loads of Christmas crackers and lots of

loud laughter. If your family gathering is

on the larger size, then a children’s table

is always a good solution. Depending on

their ages, you could choose to bring in

a few more child-friendly elements, like

a brown paper tablecloth, red and green

crayons, a bowl of Christmas crackers and

some silly dress-up props for photos.

Recipe

Create an outdoor

setting with neutral

colours and plenty

of greenery.

9. Add a wreath – or three!

Easy to make, this DIY festive symbol

can even be made by the children. Keep it

green, and make a few to hang along the

wall or window. Try making smaller ones

with rosemary to use as napkin rings. Not

only will they bring a lovely fragrance to

the table, they’ll look super cute.

10. Make a chill-out zone

Let’s not forget that after all that cooking,

eating, laughing and drinking there

is a certain moment in the day when

everything goes quiet. Some find a good

chair to start that new book, while others

like to nod off into siesta land. So why not

create a lovely lounge area on the veranda

or lawn, where picnic blankets, throw

cushions and beanbags invite your guests

into a blissful state of relaxation — and

digestion!

All you need for your outdoor space

Local company The Outdoor Space is

truly the place to go to for anything you

need for your outdoor space and owner

Aaron Bartlett recommends that those

who are building get in early so plans can

be drawn up and landscaping completed

before your move.

“We can do everything except building

the house,” says Aaron.

The list of services they provide is

extensive including lawns to planting,

garden sheds, paving, irrigation, outdoor

kitchens , fires and fire pits, raised vege

gardens, fences, decks, pergolas, stone,

schist, brick and block work. No job is

too big or small.

And designing your dream garden

does not need to be expensive. The team

at The Outdoor Space can design your

dream garden for as little as $400 for

a 1000m2 section, producing a colour

hand drawn design.

“Clients may have ideas of what they’d

like or none at all and we can come up

with some great suggestions,” says Aaron.

Fire pits and fires are always popular

feature in an outdoor space. Fire pits

are a cheaper and a custom-designed

concrete block fire pit, lined with fire

bricks looks great. A timber top can be

added so it can double as an outdoor

coffee table.

If you would like something bigger

they can put in wood and gas outdoor

fires, either a custom build or install the

likes of Trendz or Flare fires, cladding

them in stonework for a unique look.

The team at The Outdoor Space

recently won a gold medal in the Lincoln

Envirotown responsible business awards

to add to our gold and bronze awards for

international Ellerslie flower show.

“Thank all our clients for the year,

wishing a very merry Christmas, safe and

happy New Year and all the best for 2020.

The perfect Xmas centerpiece

How to remove ham rind

1

The most perfect sticky glaze

is slathered all over this juicy,

tender, baked Brown Sugar

Mustard Glazed Ham, with

crisp edges and an incredible

flavour

Brown Sugar

Mustard-Glazed Ham

Ingredients

4-5kg bone-in fully cooked ham

½ cup water

½ cup unsalted butter

1 cup brown sugar

½ cup honey

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

¼ teaspoon ground cloves

4 cloves garlic, smashed

Directions

Preheat the oven to 150 deg

C. and arrange a rack in the

lower third. Remove any plastic

packaging or netting from the

ham. Trim away the rind and

discard. Set the ham aside to rest

at room temperature for 1-2hr.

Line a baking tray or dish with

several sheets of aluminium foil

or baking paper if you prefer (it

will make clean-up a lot easier).

Remove the rind or skin of

the ham, ensuring you leave the

fat on. Using a sharp knife score

a 2-3cm wide diamond pattern

(don’t cut more than 5mm deep)

over the entire ham. Place the

ham in the baking tray; pour ⅓

cup of water into the base of the

pan and cover

the ham with

two pieces of

foil or baking

paper and bake

for 30min.

Meanwhile,

heat the

butter in a

small pot or

saucepan over

medium heat

until golden

browned. Add

in the brown

sugar, honey,

mustard,

cinnamon and

cloves, stirring

to mix together

well until the

brown sugar

has completely

dissolved,

(about 2min).

Reduce heat

to low and

add in the

garlic. Allow

it to become

fragrant,

cooking for a

further minute

or two until the glaze just begins

to simmer, then set it aside and

let cool to lukewarm (the glaze

should be the consistency of

room-temperature honey).

Christchurch. Ph 03 342 7150

carefully remove the ham from

the oven and increase the oven

temperature to 220 deg C.

Discard the foil or parchment

paper and pour ⅓ of the glaze

all over the ham, brushing in

between the cuts to evenly cover.

Return to the oven and bake

uncovered for 15min.

Remove from the oven, brush

with another third of the glaze

and some of the pan juices, and

repeat again after 15min more

minutes of baking until a dark

golden-brown crust has formed,

(about 30min total). For added

depth of flavour, mix some of

the ham pan juices together with

the glaze in the pot which will

help keep it runny enough for

brushing. If your crust is still

pink after there suggested baking

time, turn on your broiler (or

oven grill), and allow it to broil

for 2-5min, while keeping an eye

on it so it doesn’t burn from the

sugar.

Let the ham rest 10-20min

before slicing.

NOTES

If your glaze has been over

simmered and begins to thicken

between each baste, add some

of the pan juices to it and heat it

up over low heat until it warms

through and is the consistency of

warmed honey.

1. Cut a line through the skin

all around the shank end.

2

2. Insert a sharp knife between

the rind and fat and run it

along to detach the rind.

3

3. Using your fingers, gently

separate the rind from the

fat, insterting your hand

deeper into the ham to keep

detaching it.

4

4. Peel off and discard the rind.

Looking for a Property?

What really counts

You are in the market for a new property,

scrolling the Internet, examining

properties for sale and zeroing in on

those with potential. They might be

in locations that offer cheaper land,

larger houses, or convenience to work

or school. You may have visited show

homes and open homes becoming

confused, overwhelmed or swept

away with emotional factors like having

everything new, or extra features such

as three car garaging.

To be happy with your choice, list the

features that you need, considering:

; Family space – Is there room for

the children to play indoors and

for television and entertainment

units? Should this be open plan or

separated?

; Kitchen – What needs to be in your

kitchen? How serious are you about

a butler’s pantry? Is it a whim or

something that offers a practical

solution to the way you use your

kitchen?

; Bedroom sizes – What are optimum

sizes? Smaller bedrooms may

translate to slightly lower building

costs while extra space can be

useful. When looking at existing

homes, consider whether the size of

each bedroom is sufficient.

; Garaging – A standard double

garage once two cars are parked

there offers little space for the toys.

What toys do you have and could

they live with the lawnmower in a

garden shed, a cheaper option to

three car garaging? If the budget

allows and a larger garage with

workshop is important, make it a

selection priority.

; Size of land – Lifestyle properties

offer space for children, pets,

hobbies, an expansive garden and

perhaps a home-run business but

they require work so are not for

everyone and a compact section

might be more sensible if a tight

budget or busy lifestyle.

; Bathrooms – Second and third

bathrooms are great in homes with

teenagers and a wet shower room is

ideal for young children. A bath might

be fashionable though is often not

used and its absence could mean a

more spacious bathroom.

; Laundry – Would a laundry in the

garage do the job?

; Storage – How much storage do you

need? Weigh up what can truly be

stored in the garage once vehicles

are in, a preference in winter.

Garages vary in size so check the

size to ensure your vehicles will fit.

Look also at where else the house

offers storage capacity such as in

hall cupboards, a large hot water

cylinder cupboard, wardrobes (check

their width and depth), walk-in robe,

attic storage trusses, as well as the

potential for hooks and shelving in

the garage for bikes, tools, garden

equipment and even kayaks.

; Off-street parking – How many

vehicles can be parked on the

driveway? Will this space be

sufficient?

; Garden - Is there sufficient space

for your children to play or for

entertaining?

A checklist will allow you to determine

what will suit your needs, the point of

the exercise, saving you time looking at

properties or potential house designs

while assisting you to decide whether

to buy a new or existing home with

both options having advantages and

disadvantages.

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

Securing your home

these holidays

There have been a number of burglaries

and thefts in the district more recently.

This emphasises the need to secure your

property when away as well as when

home.

Assets can be replaceable, treasured

keepsakes conveying irreplaceable

memories, not so. Motor vehicles and

electronics are often the target but it is

surprising what a thief will take.

The thought of someone entering our

home is unsettling, the mess and damage

left behind a real hassle. Even when well

insured, there is a cost: the excess, loss of

a no claim bonus; write-down of an asset’s

value; the inconvenience of no wheels or

other possessions; the wait time before

insurance pay out; and the time involved

in looking for replacement items.

These are good reasons to make our

homes as secure as possible. The adage: ‘if

they want to get in, they will’ is true yet

some thieves are opportunistic, looking

for easy targets.

Simple ways to secure your home

and vehicles are:

• Lock your house and garage when going

out, heading away or at home.

• Keep vehicles locked when in the

driveway or on the street, never leaving

the keys in them and ensuring valuables,

bags or other tempting items are hidden.

• Shut all windows at night and when

going out or away; especially those

accessible from the street.

• Activate any alarm system keeping

the codes confidential. Never share

the master code. Set temporary codes

for guests and when issuing a key to a

neighbour or trusted tradesperson.

• Padlock sheds with all tools inside so

they cannot be used for breaking-in.

• Lock firearms in an out-of-the-way

place then secure the key in a separate

location.

• Organise a house sitter or ask a

neighbour, family member or friend to

keep an eye on your property and clear

the letterbox. Alternatively, put a stop on

your mail with NZ Post.

• If away longer than two weeks, arrange

for a neighbour or contractor to mow

the lawns.

• Secure the spa and swimming pools,

locking covers or draining them.

More serious ways to protect your

home include:

• Fitting sensor lights.

• Installing lockable security doors.

• Installing an alarm system.

• Installing security surveillance cameras

like those where you can download an

APP onto your cell phone so you can

remotely view your home while away.

These are ideal when you are not likely

to have power or Internet access.

• Fit an automated irrigation system on

a timer, programming it to turn on

each day. This will give the impression

someone is home and keep your plants

healthy.

Burglaries can be opportunist due to

lax security. Locking doors and windows

helps. Setting the alarm is common sense

– if the facility is there, why not use it.

Adopting other security measures can

be worth the effort and might keep your

home safe over the holidays.

Fit an automated

irrigation system.

Arrange to have

your lawns mowed.

Keep your home & vehicles locked.

What to ask at

an open home

It’s easy to get carried away when you’re

searching through property listings for the

house of your dreams. But if you’re not careful,

home buying can become a nightmare.

“Buying a property is a complex and

potentially stressful process, not least

because it involves such a scary amount

of money,” says Kevin Lampen-Smith,

chief executive at the Real Estate Agents

Authority (REAA).

“It’s smart to do as much as you can to

reduce the risk of unwelcome surprises or

unexpected costs further down the line.”

In the first instance, Lampen-Smith

recommends drawing up a list of questions

to ask about properties you’re interested in.

“Remember that you can ask the real estate

agent anything you like about the property,”

he says. “They are also required to tell you

everything they know and not withhold

any details.”

If you’re not sure what to ask, here’s a handy

list of questions. Open homes can be busy,

so ask the agent if you can talk on the

phone, or send questions via email.

- Have there been any issues with the

property, such as earthquake damage or

water-tightness?

- Are there any offers on the property,

or have any contracts been cancelled by

potential buyers?

- How long has it been on the market? What

is the seller’s preferred settlement date?

- What maintenance, repairs or

improvements have been carried out? Do

these have permits?

- Is there a Land Information Memorandum

(LIM) available or a building report

prepared by an accredited property

surveyor?

- Is the property well-maintained? What

condition are the roof, piles, wiring, and

plumbing in?

- Is the property insulated? If so, to what

degree (eg walls, underfloor, ceiling)?

- Is there any risk of methamphetamine (P)

contamination?

- If there is a body corporate (usually for

apartments), what does that entail?

- Are there any issues with neighbours or

planned developments?

“If you are seriously considering making an

offer, you will need to do your own research

and seek professional advice. It may well

become your home, so you need to know as

much about it as possible to save unhappy

surprises later,” Lampen-Smith says.

“Knowing the right questions to ask is a

good starting point.”
