Driver disappears after

HOT SPOT: Lincoln Blue Watch firefighters dampen down a flare up in scrub alongside where a car crashed and caught alight

on Sunday.

THE DRIVER and occupants

of this burnt out car may have

had a miraculous escape when

it crashed in Lincoln on Sunday

morning.

The vehicle ended upside

down in a paddock at the intersection

of Birchs and Tancreds

Rd and then caught fire.

The vehicle was completely

destroyed.

Lincoln volunteer firefighters

were called to the scene at

5.30am.

Chief fire officer Jeremy

Greenwood said it appeared the

vehicle left the road and rolled

into the paddock.

“It was well involved in fire

when we arrived but there were

no occupants. They had left the

scene before we got there,” he

said.

“The fire had the potential to

spread with the dry grass so it

was lucky the conditions were

quite calm at the time and we

were able to contain it.”

Firefighters returned mid

afternoon when smoke began

to billow in dry scrub near

the vehicle.

the offenders

travel from

THERE ARE lucky people; and there are

lucky people.

Every Wednesday and Saturday night

when the Lotto numbers roll out, there are

very lucky people.

About 5.30am on Sunday there was one –

or maybe more – lucky individuals in a car which crashed into a

paddock on the outskirts of Lincoln (see page 1).

The car ended up on its roof and caught fire. How it got there

is hard to work out. It could have come from Tancreds or Birchs

Rds. Vehicles tend to end up in all sorts of odd places and angles

when they crash.

When firefighters got there, the driver and anyone else who had

been in the car had scarpered.

Lucky? You bet.

Darfield wastewater

scheme potentially 10 years away

• By Devon Bolger

DARFIELD RESIDENTS and

businesses could be waiting up

to 10 more years for a wastewater

scheme.

The township is one of the

largest unsewered communities

in New Zealand.

A business

case for a potential

sewerage

scheme for

Darfield was

presented at a

district council

meeting last

Wednesday.

It also in-

Debra Hasson

vestigated a potential wastewater

scheme for the Kirwee township.

The business case recommended

there is sufficient evidence

to support planning toward a

potential wastewater scheme for

central Darfield now.

District councillors voted to

endorse the recommendation

and to continue looking into

solutions to benefit the whole

Darfield community and Kirwee.

A statement will be included

in the 2020/21 Annual Plan consultation

document to further

engage the Darfield community’s

DEVELOP: District councillors voted to progress plans for a

wastewater scheme for Darfield and Kirwee but it could still be

desire for the system.

Formal consultation on any

proposal would take place as part

of the 2021-2031 Long Term Plan

process.

At the meeting councillor Debra

Hasson questioned the overall

time frame for the project.

‘What you’re talking about is

further consultation and then

further consultation under the

Long Term Plan. I take that as;

this project being 10 years away

is still a possibility,” she said.

District council asset manager

water services Murray England

responded: “Yes 10 years is a

possibility but also two years or

three years as well. The recommendations

I think are saying

stop wasting time and start

pushing forward.”

Darfield Motel owner Wally

Murdoch said the scheme going

LINCOLN

ahead is good news.

“I think it has stunted the

development of Darfield a bit so

we definitely support it.”

The possibility of the new system

taking up to 10 years is not

ideal, Mr Murdoch said.

“The sooner the better for

us really I mean I think it will

continue to stunt the town until

it goes ahead.”

Dwellings in Darfield and

Kirwee currently rely on septic

tanks and other onsite treatment

systems.

The business case presented to

district councillors said: “There

is little evidence to support the

identified opportunity for a full

township wastewater management

scheme for Darfield and

Kirwee, or for Darfield alone.

“There was little support from

the wider stakeholder group for

a scheme to be developed unless

required to protect public health

and that the capital contribution

from ratepayers did not create a

burden,” it said.

Primary school may

host technology centre

• By Devon Bolger

A TECHNOLOGY centre for year

7 and 8 pupils in Rolleston could

be sited at the new primary school

planned to open in two years.

Education

Minister Chris

Hipkins told

Selwyn Times

a technology

centre would be

considered by

the new school’s

Chris Hipkins establishment

board.

“The establishment board will

PROGRESS: The Ministry of Education is working on determining

a location in Rolleston for a technology facility for year 7 and

8 pupils. PHOTO: GETTY IMAGES

engage with the local community

as it develops the foundations for

the new school in Rolleston east

including considering the name

it will have and building the vision

and school culture,” he said.

“It will also consider whether

the school will host a technology

centre.”

The need for a technology

facility in Rolleston was initially

set out in the Ministry of Education’s

Canterbury National

Education Growth Plan 2030.

Said Mr Hipkins: “Schools for

year 7 and 8 pupils all do technology

classes. Those who went

to intermediate will remember the

practical lessons fondly but primary

schools often have to share

facilities with other schools.

“In areas where the population

is growing rapidly, we have to

make sure we are catering for

that need and that’s what we are

doing for Rolleston.”

It is possible the technology

centre could be sited elsewhere.

“Where the facility does go is

one of the things the ministry

will consult on once the establishment

board is set up for the

new school then that process will

get underway and will advance

further.

“You have to make sure you

locate it in a place that hopefully

minimises the amount of travel

time for as many students as possible

and its then just a matter of

making sure you have the space

and the funding to build the

facility that is needed,” he said.

The roll for the new school has

expanded to 450, with the capacity

to extend the roll to up to 750

pupils in the future.

The school will be the third

new primary school for the area

joining West Rolleston School

which opened in 2016 and

Lemonwood Grove School which

opened in 2017.

Meanwhile, planning continues

to cater for the big population

growth.

Work is ongoing to identify a

site for a second high school in

Rolleston. Planning is also underway

so Rolleston College can

add another 700 students.

Lemonwood Grove School in

Rolleston will also increase from

400 to 750 pupils.

SELWYN TIMES

Break-ins

continue

• From page 1

It follows on from other thefts

from cars in Lincoln last week,

again in Flemington and nearby

Rosemerryn, and recently in

Faringdon, Rolleston.

Senior Sergeant Harker said

residents need to be aware and

vigilant to prevent opportunist

thieves and burglars.

The key advice is to always

lock your vehicle, remove valuables,

park in well-lit areas when

possible and take documents

containing personal information

with you.

You should not leave keys to your

house or garage door remotes in

your vehicle either, he said.

Implementing a ‘security check’

at 9pm each night to ensure

everything is locked and secure

is a good way to protect your

valuables, Senior Sergeant Harker

said.

Police are also warning business

owners to protect their property

after a number of burglaries in the

district.

On Friday morning, Challenge

Leeston, was broken into.

Challenge Darfield was also

broken into two weeks ago.

Money and cigarettes were

targeted.

Cam Kenyon

​Fire chief encourages others

Rolleston chief fire

officer Cam Kenyon has

been volunteering at

the station since he was

16-years-old. He speaks

with Devon Bolger about

his 31 years of firefighting

and passion for helping

people

Are there any callouts that

have stuck with you?

The one that really stands out

is this time we got called to a

cardiac arrest, it was only about

a year ago. It ended up being a

26-week-old gestational baby,

the mother had given birth far

too early. The baby could have

fit in my hand but ended up

surviving and being completely

healthy.

I went to the Port Hills fires,

I’ve done the Dunsandel fires

but they are just fires and you do

what you do, but that baby that

survived, that stood out.

We actually met the parents

a few months later. It’s those

moments when you’re helping

people that mean more.

Those kinds of call-outs where

you make a real difference in

people’s lives.

DEDICATED: Rolleston chief fire officer Cam Kenyon has been volunteer firefighting for 31 years

and has no plans to stop anytime soon.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

How did you get involved in

firefighting?

I learned to be a volunteer at

Rolleston where I was living.

You had to be 16 so the day

I turned 16 I went down and I

spoke to the chief at the time and

he said to come back in a couple

of weeks, so I did. He was trying

to make sure I was keen and that

just kicked it off. I was in.

I was still at Lincoln High

School at the time. By year 12 I was

one of the founding members to

start the Students Against Drink

Driving.

I remember my first fatal callout

was for a drunk driver, so I

have always been against it.

I ended up going into the army

in 1991 as a firefighter and did 13

years there. I got to the rank of

sergeant. During that time I was

still coming back to Rolleston as

well so I was volunteering at the

same time I was in the army.

I left the army and got a job

at the airport fire service. I had

to start at the bottom again and

went through the ranks there.

I’m currently a shift manager at

the airport.

How did you become the chief

fire officer at Rolleston?

Basically, I joined and worked

my way up through the ranks.

Then, when Nigel Lilley stood

down as chief they accepted

applications and I was the lucky

one who got it. I was a station

officer at the time.

Do you enjoy being the chief?

I actually love it. It’s a challenge

because it is a lot busier than just

putting out fires and things like

that. There’s a lot of admin to do

as well, it’s all about driving the

brigade and taking it forward.

What keeps you going with

the brigade?

I love it. There’s something

about just going out and helping

the people and also training or

mentoring, especially when we

go to schools and kindergartens.

to volunteer

The kids are our future for the

brigade you know, I’m not going

to be around forever and we need

people to come through and take

over and have the same passions.

I can’t say I’ve ever had a moment

when I’ve said I don’t want

to do it anymore or I’ve had

enough.

Every brigade in the district

could do with more volunteers,

not just Rolleston, so if anyone is

interested, go down to your local

station and put your hand up.

Do you have any plans to stop

volunteer firefighting?

Ever since I was a kid I wanted

to be a fireman. I think the day I

lose the passion I’ll give it up and

retire but I can’t see that happening

any time soon.

Can you tell me about your

other volunteer work?

I was a volunteer ambulance

officer for two years in the mid-

2000s, I really enjoyed that.

I volunteered at the Waitaha

Learning Centre, now Waitaha

School, when it was in Templeton

helping children with special

needs. I just love to volunteer.

If anyone feels like volunteering

and helping out, whether it be

the fire brigade or any organisation,

they should do it. It’s about

giving back to the people and to

the community.

I would highly recommend

it because it comes with such

a sense of achievement, it’s extremely

rewarding.

How long have you lived in

Selwyn?

My family and I moved to

Rolleston in 1986. I spent about

three years here then went away

for three years and then came

back. I’ve probably spent about

aclandpark.co.nz

0800 ACLAND

INSPIRING:

Rolleston’s Cam

Kenyon with

Weedons School

pupils helping them

complete their firewise

programme.

seven years out here all together.

What do you like about living

in Rolleston?

The fire brigade. Just kidding,

I would have to say the people.

When I first started there

were six or seven streets and the

growth has been unbelievable

but you still feel like you are

a part of this small town.

My wife hates it because every

time we go shopping I always run

into someone I know and will

want to have a chat with.

What are your hobbies and

interests outside of firefighting?

I enjoy the gym, I do that all

the time and we’ve just built

a house so we have spent a lot

of time doing the gardens and

things like that.

I’m also a part of the Red Knight

Motorcycle Club. It’s for current

and ex firefighters and is a lot of

fun, I’d definitely recommend it

and if any firefighters want to get

involved just get in touch.

My wife’s a shift worker at the

airport in the operations department

and we like to spend time

together.

I’ve also got a brand new grandaughter

that is taking up a lot of

my time as well.

Can you tell me about your

family?

I have a wife Raewyn, she is my

biggest supporter. When I went

for the chief job she was behind

me 100 per cent, she has been

there for me through everything.

Between us, we have five

children. I have got three, a

daughter and two sons who are

all grown up and working and

then Raewyn’s got two boys,

so I have two stepsons. They

are all grown up and working

as well and of course, my one

granddaughter, she is the best.

Fire

meeting a

• By Devon Bolger

A SECOND meeting to educate

lifestyle block owners on

protecting their property from

fire was a success.

About 80 people attended the

meeting held by Fire and Emergency

New Zealand, police and

the district council civil defence

team in Lincoln on Sunday.

Said FENZ fire risk management

officer Kerri Pring: “It was

great. People are really positive

and they’re hungry for the information

we are giving them.

“You can see they really want

to make a difference for their

properties and protect themselves

and their neighbours.”

Part of the key advice was to

keep grass cut and a clear path

for emergency services to help in

case something does go wrong,

she said.

No further meetings are

planned for this summer but they

may be held again next year.

Mayor

asks for

restart of

process

• By Devon Bolger

MAYOR SAM Broughton is

putting his weight behind the

fight for wider consultation on

a proposed hazardous waste

treatment facility near Prebbleton.

Mr Broughton sent a letter to

Environment Canterbury chief

executive Bill Bayfield requesting

the consultation process be

restarted.

“We are deeply concerned

with the current process under

way with Waste Management in

the Prebbleton area.

“There is huge community

concern about activities in the

neighbouring industrial zone.

This is exacerbated when things

are seen to be secretive or carried

out in a way that the community

feels minimised,” the

letter said.

“I am writing to formally

request the process restart with

serious consideration given to

full notification. This would

help address the concerns and

alleviate the current confusion

around identification and a

growing list of affected parties.”

Opposition to toxic waste plan mounts

Community

board asked

to intervene

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

“WE REALLY do not want this

to be the Greta effect.”

Those are the words from

the Prebbleton Community

Association Committee chairman

Peter Hunter – one of the

hundreds of residents fighting

against a toxic waste treatment

plant from opening in their

backyard.

Mr Hunter has called on the

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board to “advocate,

intercede and petition” to stop

Waste Management from operating

a treatment and stabilisation

facility in South Hornby.

Mr Hunter made a presentation

to board at its meeting

on Tuesday following a recent

meeting in Prebbleton which

drew in a crowd of more than

500 people over the plans for

305 Marshs Rd.

He told the board he did

not want a situation similar to

17-year-old Swedish environment

activist Greta Thunberg.

Mr Hunter said he did not

want someone standing up in

front of the authorities saying

“you lot stuffed it up for us and

we have to live with it and try to

fix it.”

Last year, Miss Thunberg

gained international recognition

for her campaigning on climate

change.

She sailed a yacht to New York

from Plymouth, England, where

she attended the 2019 UN Climate

Action Summit and told

the heads of state:

“We are in the beginning of

a mass extinction, and all you

can talk about is money and

fairy tales of eternal economic

growth. How dare you,” she

said.

But Mr Hunter said: “We don’t

want that, we can’t afford it. We

need help.”

He is calling on the board to

help “stop” and “review” what

Waste Management is trying to

do.

“All we want to do is protect

the environment, protect our

people, protect our children,

protect our resources and our

grandchildren down the track.”

Residents have been considering

their legal options with the

potential to take the issue to the

High Court for a judicial review

of Environment Canterbury’s

decision to only consult people

within 500m of the facility.

But Mr Hunter said this

means the community will need

Greta

Thunberg

SELWYN TIMES

Peter

Hunter

to find thousands of dollars.

Board chairman Mike Mora

thanked Mr Hunter for his

presentation.

“All we can do is lobby and

work closely with you and I

would like to suggest a couple

of members of this community

board actually be formal liaisons

with the Prebbleton group on

this matter because it is going

to affect people as much in our

ward as it is yours,’’ he said.

Hornby residents have raised

concerns over how they will be

impacted by the new hazardous

plant, particularly if the wind

blows southerly.

Board member Helen

Broughton said it could grant

funding to support the resident’s

cause.

Mr Mora said he and board

member Mark Peters will meet

with the Prebbleton association

to discuss the next steps. City

councillor Jimmy Chen will also

be involved.

Quarry decision time extended

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

QUARRY opponents nervously

anticipating a decision on

whether a controversial quarry

near Weedons has been forced

to wait a bit longer.

The hearing for Fulton

Hogan’s proposal to open a

quarry between Dawsons, Jones,

Maddisons and Curraghs Rds

will not be made this month.

The hearing

has not

closed due

to a request

from the

independent

hearings

panel chaired

Roger

Cudmore

by Rob van

Voorthuysen

for further

information

from Fulton Hogan over the

quarry.

The hearing reconvened on

February 5 so commissioners

could decide if issues addressed

in the company’s right of

reply was sufficient or if the

application would be declined.

The company’s right of reply

to concerns raised throughout

a three-week hearing late last

year was made public earlier this

month.

Leading up to the reconvening

of the hearing, an Environment

PENDING: Further information is required of Fulton Hogan

before the hearings panel can make a final decision on

whether its controversial quarry can go ahead in Templeton.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER ​

Canterbury spokeswoman said

it was possible if the commissioners

were satisfied with the

response the hearing could close

that day.

While it was not normal

practice, the commissioners

allowed written questions from

submitters at the reconvened

hearing to be put to Fulton

Hogan – if the commissioners

agreed they desired the answers

themselves.

The questions written by

submitters passed onto Fulton

Hogan by the commissioners

were:

• What route will trucks

accessing or departing the

proposed quarry take if the

Dawsons Rd railway crossing

is unavailable due to planned

maintenance or unforeseen

events?

• How much land does Fulton

Hogan own in the city council

quarry zone that has been consented

for quarrying but has not

yet been quarried?

• How much other land does

Fulton Hogan own outside of

the city council quarry zone

(a part from the Roydon site)

that has been consented for

quarrying but has not yet been

quarried?

At the reconvened hearing,

Golder Associates (NZ) principal

environmental consultant

Roger Cudmore also presented

new evidence addressing potential

offset from the quarry of air

pollutant PM10.

New written replies to Mr

Cudmore’s evidence including

experts on behalf of the quarry

is now required by the panel.

The panel also had further

questions for Golder Associates

(NZ) associate and senior

environmental scientist Audrey

Wagenarr who was unable to

attend the hearing.

Fulton Hogan and other organisations

required to respond

to the new evidence presented

at the hearing will have until

Friday, February 28.

Said Templeton Residents’ Association

secretary Jolene Eagar:

“It is pretty much out of our

control at this stage, but in the

end, she would rather the commissioners

make an informed

decision than feel rushed.’’

If the panel is satisfied with

the response they will close the

hearing and a decision will be

released 15 working days later.

Area response manager

Senior Sergeant Dean

Harker talks about crime

trends in the district and

shares advice on staying

vigilant

HELLO AND welcome to the

first Selwyn police column.

This will be a monthly

column where we discuss relevant

topics and crime trends

within the district.

Over the last few weeks, we

have had an increase in rural

burglaries throughout the district.

Most offending is taking

place during daylight hours.

Crime prevention in rural

areas is most effective when

it involves a partnership

between rural people, police,

local authorities and local

organisations. If you are going

to be away from your property

for a length of time advise

your neighbours and also your

local police who can pass this

on to community patrols if

applicable.

Recently a number of

offenders who have been apprehended

are travelling from

outside of the district to commit

these crimes. They have

been targeting properties that

are insecure or have property

Dean Harker

SECURE:

Locking

gates and

sheds will

help deter

thieves.

that can be easily stolen.

Important security measures

include:

• While away from your

property or at night you

should lock all rural buildings,

houses and sheds etc.

• You should have a detailed

inventory of all personal

valuables and household and

business equipment, including

model and serial numbers,

inscriptions, and other identifying

features.

• Reduce risk by taking

notice of who is out and

about and talking to them

(particularly if they aren’t

locals), locking your house,

removing keys, closing gates

(particularly to your driveway/

house), and keeping an eye on

each other’s property.

Offenders will use a range of

techniques but most offending

is opportunistic.

Report all instances of crime

– even when a police response

is not necessary.

Police need to know the

pattern of crime in an area.

You can help police by reporting

all instances of suspicious

behaviour or crime. It helps

police to know who is in the

community or if there is a

pattern of crime developing

in an area that needs further

investigation. It also helps

us to decide if the rest of the

community should be alerted

too.

By reporting these crimes

it also gives the police the opportunity

to fingerprint and

also look for any other forensic

evidence. This enables us to

hold the offenders to account.

Reporting crime can be

done in a number of ways.

• Phone 111 when you need

immediate help with a lifethreatening

or time – critical

emergency

• By phoning 105 – when no

one is injured or in danger,

there is no serious risk to people

or property, the crime isn’t

still happening.

• By reporting online at 105.

police.govt.nz

• Or by calling into your

nearest local police station.

School going solar

Former Weedons School

pupil Georgia Skene writes

about the school’s solar

panel project

ECO-FRIENDLY: Weedons School pupils Ravie Battersby and

Liam Casey receiving a donation for solar panels from Storage

King Rolleston owners Ayyam and Chris O’Brien. ​

WEEDONS SCHOOL is set to

get solar panels after donations

from local businesses.

Over the years the school has

had a rather successful environmental

programme.

This includes litter-free

lunches, pet chickens, native tree

planting and even an Enviro

Club, which encourages young

pupils to take a stand to the

health of the environment.

Solar panels are an amazing

alternative when using extensive

amounts of power, this will be

Weedons School’s next big step.

Being a small district school

with a population of 160 students

hasn’t made this significant

task any easier.

Year 7 and 8 students recently

wrote letters to local Izone companies,

with the explanation and

a sponsor proposal of their goal

for 2020.

Out of several correspondences,

a number replied to the

school.

The local Storage King and

Advanced Landscaping have

kindly donated funds to go towards

purchasing the panels.

In addition, the school is also

arranging to further educate

pupils about how solar energy

operates.

This will hopefully motivate

families within the school to

install solar panels in their

homes.

If this is achievable, the more

solar energy used, the fewer

greenhouse gases are developed

into our atmosphere.

Greenhouse gases incorporate

a mixture between water vapour,

carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous

oxide and ozone.

A greenhouse gas absorbs

radiant energy, causing heat to

be retained in the lower atmosphere,

further resulting in global

warming.

Borrow toys online

at Rolleston library

THE ROLLESTON Toy Library

is up and running after two

years of planning.

Its inaugural toy collection day

was held at the Rolleston Community

Centre.

It is the only toy library in

the country to operate entirely

online.

Getting it off the ground has

required an enormous amount

of effort by the small group of

dedicated volunteers, publicity

and promotions officer Michelle

Sim said.

“From searching for premises,

applying for grants and organising

fundraisers, to purchasing

new toys, cataloguing, packaging

and labelling them. It’s been a

true labour of love for all of us.

“To be fully operational and

see the dream finally become a

reality is a massive achievement,

which we’re all incredibly proud

of. We can’t wait to see Rolleston

families enjoying the use of these

fabulous toys,” she said.

The web-based system allows

members to browse and book

toys online, then collect them

from the central pick-up and

drop-off point at the Rolleston

Community Centre, between

3-4pm on Sundays.

Jamming along on the

guitar with Grandad

VITTORIA loves music,

singing and dancing.

It’s very cool and I

love catching her singing

along to some song

she’s made up when she

doesn’t know I’m looking.

And although I might

not love it immediately,

I quite enjoy it when she

forces her singing upon

me. Like at 6am.

Over the last week

there’s been a couple of

days where I’ve been

woken up by her climbing

onto my head, leaning into

my ear and belting out a

(upon reflection) lovely

rendition of the birthday

song.

She had first surprised

me with her ability to sing

the song, in its entirety,

last week at her Nan’s

house while I did some

gardening. She was calmly

sitting, eating some berries

while I worked and

just started singing along.

I guess it makes sense,

birthday season is still

alive and kicking so she’s

heard that song a heap.

She’s also rediscovered

an old favourite in Twinkle

Twinkle Little Star with

even more vigour that she

can sing the words as well

as do the actions.

It’s not the only one in

her repertoire though,

she’s also liable to jump

straight into a round of

arrive in New Zealand in

the 1830s is the southern

Culex quinquefaciatus.

It was likely to be

brought here by American

whaling ships or via

Australian populations in

open water tanks on boats

to the Auckland area.

THe species is now

distributed in tropical

and sub-tropical regions

around the world. In New

Zealand it is mainly found

in the North Island and

Baby Shark at the drop of

a hat, or any mention of

the word shark. I can actually

feel other parents with

similar aged kids groaning

at that.

Considering all that,

it wasn’t a big surprise

that she got so excited by

the idea of adding in the

sound of her Grandad’s

guitars to her songs on

Waitangi Day.

We’d popped round for

dinner and while we were

there she grabbed the two

he has in his lounge and

dragged them over to the

couch.

She then handed one to

her Grandad and kept one

for herself to add twanging

guitar strings to her

birthday song, encouraging

her Grandad to play

along with her.

It was great seeing them

have a wee jam session together

and Vittoria clearly

enjoyed it.

I might not remember

anything about the lessons

I had on those guitars, but

it seems Vittoria might

enjoy learning to use them

properly in future.

Wilder’s Aussie rules

code-hopping success

SPORT

• By Jacob Page

LINCOLN SENIOR rugby player

Kris Wilder has had a whirlwind

code-hop to Australian Rules.

After being encouraged by a

friend to try the sport last year

to improve his rugby fitness, the

27-year-old played five games

for the University Cougars in

Christchurch and was then

selected in the New Zealand AFL

draft in November.

He has played two games for

the Western Crows in the national

competition in Auckland, playing

full-forward and kicking six goals.

The four team competition

sees Wilder travel to North Harbour

Stadium each weekend for

the 10-week competition.

“I played five games for the

Canterbury University Cougars

and obviously did enough to be

on the radar for the draft.

“It cost $600 to enter it but if

you get drafted that covers your

10 weeks of flights to Auckland

and your meals, kit, warm-ups

and ice baths etc.

“It’s quite professional in that

sense, it’s like the Mitre 10 Cup

in rugby, that’s the best way I can

describe it.”

In 2018 the average Australian

AFL player earned A$369,000

(NZ$385,000) but Wilder said

going professional was a longshot,

not only for him but most

of the New Zealand players.

end of the season because there

will be an Aussie team that will

against them,” he said.

“The difference in standard

here compared to Australia is

huge – Aussie kids smash us and

I don’t think it will be about the

money for me at this point.”

He said he planned to play senior

rugby this season and bring

up 100 games for the Lincoln

premier team.

“This has taken me a lot

further than I thought it would

considering I just wanted to do it

to be a fitter, better rugby player.

“It is a fast game with a

lot of running and a heap of

athleticism and I’m keen to just

see where I end up with it.”

Top three prevail in Country tennis

• By Jacob Page

JUST ONE spot remains open in

the semi finals with two rounds

to go in the Canterbury Country

tennis competition.

Fernside is the only team

eliminated from top four contention

with Tai Tapu still an

outside chance to take fourth

from Prebbleton-Lincoln if they

win their remaining fixtures and

results go their way.

The top three teams, West

Melton, Kirwee-Springston and

Rolleston-Killinchy are secure

after all recording wins during

round eight on Saturday.

Competition leaders West Melton

beat Tai Tapu nine matches

to seven.

Kirwee-Springston thrashed

Prebbleton-Lincoln 15-1 and

Rolleston-Killinchy beat Fernside

almost as emphatically 14

matches to two.

It was the West Melton men’s

quartet of Luke Tanner, Max

Aldridge, Blake Cullen and

Campbell Nauman who laid the

platform for their win over Tai

Tapu.

All four went undefeated in

their singles matches. The Tai

Tapu women of Pieta Aitken,

Olivia Wrathall, Jo Christie

and Helen Mills replied by winning

three of their four singles

matches to get their team back in

the contest.

In the end it was West Melton’s

Juliette Ma’s 9-8 win over Pieta

Aitken that provided the crucial

victory.

Tai Tapu captain Cam Mills

said he was pleased to get as close

as his team did to the competition

front-runners, but admitted

it would make it hard for them to

sneak into the top four with just

two rounds remaining.

Kirwee-Springston cemented

second with a big win over

Prebbleton-Lincoln at Kirwee.

The visitors’ only win came from

Craig Whitehead beating Dave

Ashton in the men’s singles.

Rolleston-Killinchy won seven

out of eight singles matches

against Fernside to strengthen

Skate jams

get rolling

The first Summer Skate Jam of the year kicked off at Glentunnel School last week with more than

60 people enjoying skateboarding, scootering and other wheeled fun.

Cheapskates Skate Skool instructors Scott, George and Josh were on hand to teach the children

the basics and bring some fun, as well as providing gear for those who didn’t have any.

Along with helping riders learn some new skills, the Skate Skool crew ran a competition for people

to show off the tricks they know, with Isaac Pokiahau-Rogers, 11, from Coalgate taking out the

competition for skaters aged 8 and up.

The Glentunnel event was the first of eight skate jams this year, with the next one being held at

Tai Tapu Primary School Wednesday 19 February, 3.30–5.30pm, followed by the Darfield Summer

Skate Jam on Wednesday 26 February 3.30–5.30pm at the Darfield Skate Park.

A place to finally call home

Continuing our series celebrating the Faces of Selwyn. Visit selwyn.govt.nz/facesofselwyn for the full story.

In 2000, two strangers from Iceland and China got chatting at Melbourne airport and then found

themselves sitting next to each other on a flight to Auckland.

It was the start of Sam and Lillian Ragnarsson’s 19 year journey to calling New Zealand home.

Sam left Iceland aged 23, and until he moved to Prebbleton six years ago, he had never stayed in one

place for more than a year. Lillian had lived in Japan and the United States of America.

Following that first airport meeting, they reconnected online and married in 2008. After a year each in

Japan, the USA and China, the two project managers sat down with a spreadsheet to decide where to

settle down. They listed everything they wanted from a country and New Zealand came out on top.

“We always laugh that we met on the way to New Zealand and then we ended up in New Zealand, so

many years later,” Sam says.

They chose Christchurch to help out with the post-earthquake rebuild and settled in Prebbleton.

They have kept links to their birth lands and Sam says there’s now even an Icelandic flag flying at their

daughter’s school. But both were very happy to gain New Zealand citizenship last year.

“For someone living in seven countries, five continents and

who’s moved this often, to find a place and be accepted

was really important,” Sam says.

For Lillian, it was a milestone giving up her Chinese

passport and visa, but made her feel part of her new home.

“I am ready to fight for New Zealand, that’s how I feel.”

The pair considered leaving Prebbleton and buying a

lifestyle block, but their girls Nicole and Caitlin said, “We

love this house, we love this place, why should we leave?”

“And it made us think, they’re right, why would we leave?”

Bin tagging project nearly complete

The project to stocktake and tag the district’s 51,000 bins is well on its way to being completed.

More than 70% of rubbish, recycling and organics bins have now been fitted with a Radio Frequency

Identification (RFID) tag through the project which began in September.

The RFID tags will allow the Council to easily and remotely maintain accurate records of the numbers and

types of bins at each property, ensuring fair charging for all and allowing for a more efficient service.

The scanning equipment is in the process of being fitted to collection trucks. The tag, about the size of

a thumb tip, will be automatically scanned each time the bin is collected. A final sweep of any bins that

have not been tagged will take place before the contractor will cease collection of any untagged bins.

For more information please visit selwyn.govt.nz/binstocktake.

Community Fund helps

star dancers

A brand new dance workshop for children and young adults living

with disabilities has started in Lincoln, running during school terms.

The workshop is run by The StarJam Charitable Trust to give young

New Zealanders with disabilities a chance to feel like a star and

develop life skills and friendships through music and dance.

It is supported by the Selwyn Community Fund. Established in

2018, the Council fund supports groups and organisations that

contribute to community wellbeing. The fund is available for Selwyn

– based not-for-profit community groups that are looking to run a

project, event, or initiative in the Selwyn district.

The Council supported StarJam by providing the Lincoln Event

Centre for the workshop “Southern Groovers,” run by one tutor

and three volunteers.

The free workshop is already booked out with 12 young people

or ‘Jammers’ already signed up. It is the second StarJam

workshop alongside one run at the Rolleston Community Centre

on Tuesday evenings.

StarJam are extremely grateful for the funding which will open

opportunities for more workshops in the area, trust grants writer

Fiona Rouse says.

“This funding will ensure the safe and successful delivery of

StarJam’s workshops, performances and community social events

benefiting young people with disabilities who attend the Lincoln

weekly workshops.”

StarJam host lots of other free workshops weekly up and down the

country, teaching youth aged 6 to 25 with disabilities how to dance,

play drums, guitar and sing.

One of the previous workshop’s participants, Katrina, said StarJam

makes her feel cool and like she’s a superstar.

These workshops enable 540 youth to participate every year,

regardless of their disability.

Applications for round two of funding from the Community

Fund this year close on Thursday 30 April. Apply now at

selwyn.govt.nz/selwyncommunityfund.

Reconnect project under way at

Pines Resource Recovery Park

Work has begun on the first round of improvements at the Pines

Resource Recovery Park.

The developments include an enhanced recycling and reusables

drop-off area with a canopy, parking and operational area, as well

as all underground services for the planned future stages. The $1.85

million works are being carried out by CB Civil and Drainage and the

new area is expected to be open by June this year.

Council Solid Waste Manager Andrew Boyd says the developments

are catering for future growth as well as enabling improved recovery

of materials currently entering the waste stream. “These upgrades will

improve the experience of customers at the Recovery Park as well

as increasing diversion of materials from landfill. Having the ability

to drop off items that can be reused by others is something that the

district has needed for some time, so we are pleased to see this

project starting to take shape.”

The current works are the first stage in a wider project named

Reconnect that will take place from 2021 to 2024. Reconnect is an

innovative and ambitious project aimed at getting people thinking

differently about waste, recovering materials from the waste stream

and showcasing alternative options to landfill. This includes a reuse

shop and salvage yard, as well as an environmental education centre

(with a focus on waste) intended to be an interesting, interactive and

fun space for people of all ages to visit. Other developments include

a multipurpose waste hub, a community garden, and microenterprise

units focusing on making products from waste materials such as

wood, metal and fabrics.

New Council customer service centre opens

A blessing and a ribbon cutting have marked the official opening of the new customer services centre at

the Council headquarters in Rolleston.

Te Taumutu Rūnanga led a blessing of the new area on Wednesday morning, before Mayor Sam

Broughton and project manager Sandrine Carrara officially cut the ribbon ahead of the first Council

meeting of the year.

The new space, where visitors to the Council building are

welcomed, is part of a series of changes to the Council’s

customer service to provide a one-stop location for people

to contact the Council. As well as providing face to face

help for customers on all types of enquiries, the new centre

also handles enquiries through the 0800 SELWYN (735 996)

Council contact number, and email and web contacts.

The changes will allow the Council to build on the high

standards it sets for supporting residents, Group Manager

Communication and Customers Stephen Hill says.

“It’s great to have reached this milestone in our ongoing goal

of making it easy for people to do business with us,” he says.

“We now have a great space for customers to come to, and

a dedicated team supported by excellent systems to help our

residents access the services and information they want.”

On the roads this week

Speed restrictions are in place on Springs Road between Birchs Road and Trents Road due

to maintenance work on the water system. Tennyson Street between Markham Way and

Moore Street is one-way, open to southbound traffic only. Lowes Road is one way both sides

of the Tennyson Street intersection, open to traffic travelling away from the intersection, due

to the intersection upgrade. Traffic management will also be in place on Tennyson Street from Bronte Way

to just south of the intersection. Footpath construction is taking place on Lowes Road from Masefield

Drive to Tennyson Street and on Durrel Way and these footpaths will be closed during construction.

Pavement seal repairs are taking place on Wards Road. Resurfacing is taking place on Leaches

Road, Blakes Road and Telegraph Road and a culvert is being constructed on Coleridge Road. Traffic

management will be in place for each of these works.

NZTA has advised that Hoskyns Road is left in and left out only at Main South Road. The Weedons

Interchange is now fully open and Berketts Road is open for left turn in (southbound) traffic only from

Main South Road.

Canty Country earn

cup challenge

• By Jacob Page

CANTERBURY Country have

earned a Hawke Cup Challenge

against Hamilton next

weekend after beating

Marlborough by five

wickets in their zone

final in Blenheim.

Sefton pace bowler

Jed Roberts took five

for 63 from 14.5 overs

to help skittle the hosts

for 186 after Canterbury

Country won an

important toss.

The victory reversed

the round-robin result between

the two teams from a fortnight

ago.

Canterbury Country last challenged

for the Hawke Cup two

seasons ago when they came up

short against Counties.

Canterbury Country last held

the Hawke Cup in the 2014/2015

season.

An unbeaten 70 from wicket

keeper Will Hamilton and 64

from veteran Shanan Stewart

helped Canterbury Country gain

a 131-run lead on the first innings

as they made 317 all out and

recovered somewhat after being

110 for five.

Marlborough entered the final

day at 113/2 but they lost their

last eight wickets for 109 runs

Jed Roberts

which means the visitors needed

91 for victory.

While wickets fell steadily in

the chase, Rupert Young’s 46

helped Canterbury

Country earn the win.

Canterbury Country

coach Michael Sharpe

praised Roberts for his

swing bowling in the

first innings and his

two crucial wickets in

the second.

“Jed swung the ball

for the entire first innings

and then got the

first wicket for us on

day three in the second innings

which gave us a lot of momentum,”

he said.

Sharpe said his batsmen were

able to build partnerships when

they needed them most which

was an improvement on the

previous encounter between the

two teams.

He said he would discuss with

Canterbury Cricket the possibility

of them releasing domestic

players like Will Williams, Fraser

Sheat, Henry Shipley and Jack

Boyle, all of whom will be in contention

to play four-day cricket

for the province.

Rhys Mariu who has just

returned from the under-19

World Cup is another possible

selection recall.

Lincoln still in T20 hunt

SPORT

• By Jacob Page

LINCOLN ARE the only Selwyn

cricket team in with a chance of

making the Canterbury Country

twenty20 final on March 6 with

one round to go on Saturday.

Five teams have a chance of

making the decider at Rangiora’s

Mainpower Oval.

Oxford lead the competition

on 20 points, four points ahead

of Sefton, with Lincoln and Cheviot

a further two points back.

Southbrook will need to win

their final game and hope results

go their way to make the top two

for the straight final.

Both matches at Southbrook

Domain were abandoned after

wet weather on Thursday hampered

preparations on the pitch.

It meant Southbrook played no

cricket on Saturday.

The first match at Dudley Park

between Leeston-Southbridge

and Cheviot was also abandoned

for the same reason.

With their first match abandoned

and points shared, Lincoln

got a much needed win over

Sefton in the afternoon.

Lincoln chased down their target

of 121 against Sefton by five

wickets and nine balls to spare.

Three wickets from Arthur

Paterson and two from Jeremy

TOP PERFORMANCE: Lincoln’s Jeremy Benton took two wickets

and then made 39 with the bat to help his team beat Sefton by

five wickets and keep their Canterbury Country twenty20 final

hopes alive on Saturday.

Benton restricted Sefton.

Then Benton hit 39 and Paterson

38 in the run chase to see the

team home.

It was a great weekend for

Oxford who won both their

matches, first against Darfield

by 30 runs after they were able

to defend 118 thanks to Mitch

Power’s five for 17.

They then ended Leeston-

Southbridge’s final hopes with a

four wicket win.

Darfield lost both their games to

Cheviot and Oxford respectively,

SELWYN TIMES

while Weedons lost their morning

encounter with Sefton and their

afternoon fixture against Southbrook

was abandoned.

The final round of games

is a ‘closest neighbour’ round

with Lincoln hosting Weedons,

Darfield welcoming Leeston-

Southbridge, Cheviot travelling

to Oxford and Southbrook hosting

Sefton.

Points: Oxford 20, Sefton

16, Lincoln, 14, Cheviot 14,

Southbrook 12, Weedons 10,

Leeston-Southbridge 6, Darfield 4.

Have you tried

out the 87?

The 87 bus from Southbridge to the central

city is an ideal commuter service for those

who wish to save on petrol and parking

and get some time back in their day.

This is a trial service being reviewed in

April 2020, with the option to continue

if it is well supported by the community,

so hop onboard your local service now.

Tasty Bites

No more beeting around the bush

• By Ian Knott

Beetroot deserves so

much more than being

dumped from a can onto

a green salad. Packed

with essential nutrients,

this vibrant vegetable is a

great source of fibre, folate,

manganese, potassium,

iron, and vitamin C

Beetroot and halloumi

sliders with chilli jam

Serves 4

Ingredients

400g tin chickpeas, rinsed and

drained

1 tsp ground cumin

1-2 hot green chillis, finely

chopped

250g raw beetroot, peeled and

grated (wear gloves to avoid

staining your hands)

2 Tbsp chopped parsley

50g fresh wholemeal

breadcrumbs

1 egg

olive oil

Halloumi 1 slice per slider

Handful of rocket

8 or 12 small buns (brioche if you

can get them), split and cut side

toasted

Chilli jam to serve

‘Famous for their roasts!’

Directions

Put the chickpeas in a bowl

and mash them roughly, add

the cumin and chilli and mash

again. Add the beetroot, parsley,

breadcrumbs, egg and plenty of

seasoning. Mix well and form into

8 or 12 small patties.

Heat about 1cm of oil in a

frying pan and fry the patties on

each side until they are crisp and

brown. Drain on kitchen paper.

Fry the halloumi briefly until it

starts to brown a little. Put a few

rocket leaves on the base of each

bun, add a patty and a slice of

halloumi followed by a spoon

of chilli jam then put the lid on.

Start your

day with us

A cocktail stick will hold the lot

together. Serve 2 or 3 per person.

Roast beetroot soup with

caramelised onion and blue

cheese toast

Serves 6

Ingredients

1kg beetroots, topped, tailed,

scrubbed clean and cut into large

pieces

1 red onion, cut into wedges

3 cloves garlic

½ a small bunch of thyme, plus a

few leaves

500ml vegetable stock

100ml crème fraîche

½ lemon, juiced

For the toast

3 slices sourdough, cut in half

4 Tbsp caramelised onion

chutney

150g blue cheese

handful of walnuts, roughly

chopped

Directions

Heat the oven to 200 deg C

(180 deg C fan forced). Put the

beetroots, red onion and garlic

into a roasting tin, pour in 150ml

of water, season well and scatter

over the thyme. Cover with a

double layer of foil and put into

the oven for 1hr 15min or until

the beetroots are very tender to

the point of a knife.

Remove the foil, peel the

beetroots and discard the skin,

then chop into small pieces. Put

into a pan with the onion, garlic

and vegetable stock, bring to the

boil then use a hand blender to

whizz until completely smooth,

or ladle into a blender and whizz.

Season, then stir in the crème

fraîche and lemon juice, and

whizz again. Keep warm.

Heat the grill to high. Put the

bread pieces onto a baking tray

and toast on either side. Spread

each piece with the chutney and

then add a piece of blue cheese,

some thyme leaves and walnuts.

Grill until melted.

Spoon the soup into bowls and

top with the toast.

Living in the Selwyn District you may

have horses on your property. Animal

Evac NZ, which is currently helping out in

Australia rescuing animals, has launched a

Horse Emergency Plan.

If there is an emergency you may

become isolated and not know what to do

so the charity has developed a checklist

and a travel card with basic information

about your horse/s, including owner’s

name, vet details and the RAPID number.

Checking your property for risks is a

good start. Simple things like multiple

access and egress points, creating a site

plan for what needs to be turned off if

there was an emergency and whether fire

hoses can reach relevant buildings.

Secondly create plans for the options of

staying put at your property or evacuating

and make sure these are readily available

and that everyone knows about these

plans.

Ensure your horses are easily identified,

not only with microchips but also

temporary identification if there is an

emergency such as a mane tag. Have proof

of ownership on hand and an emergency

contact list for your horses.

A grab and go kit should be pre-packed

suitable clothing for the owner.

Transporting your horses could be up

to you so make sure all transport options

are registered. You may also need to help

other horse owners so keep in touch with

neighbours to see if there is anything they

require.

The Horse Transport Travel Card will

also need to be completed. It can outline

information about the horse owner’s name

and contact details, the vet’s name and

the RAPID address for where the horse/s

are at. It also includes a simple checklist

about what to do in an emergency

situation along with an alternative contact

and where the horse first aid kit and

information about the horse is kept.

HOME PROFESSIONALS

Extending the

life of your

spouting

Birds nesting in your home’s spouting is

not only a noise issue but the eggs and

young chicks can also attract vermin

which can then get inside roof cavities

and chew through wiring creating a fire

hazard within your home.

Gumleaf Gutter Guard is an effective

way of preventing birds from making

nests in the spouting and soiling walls

and windows with their droppings. The

guards can also protect tank water from

being contaminated, ensuring the safety

and quality of the water supply.

Another key advantage of Gumleaf

Gutter Guard is that it prevents leaf litter

from gathering in the spouting.

“Leaf litter remains damp and acidic

and that wrecks the spouting,” says owner

Rohan.

“By having Gumleaf Gutter Guard

installed, the life of the spouting is

extended to the life of the roof.”

Snow can also damage spouting, and

again Gumleaf Gutter Guard will protect

the spouting by spreading the load,

Rohan says.

Developed in Australia more than 20

years ago, Gumleaf Gutter Guard has

been providing a quality and effective

solution in New Zealand for the last

decade, Rohan says. Much of his work

comes from repeat business, with

customers happy with both the product

quality and the service he provides.

Customers requesting a quote will

receive it within 24 hours, and Rohan

says he will “go anywhere to provide a

quote”.

He is also available Monday to

Saturday to speak to customers who call

him.

“Even if I am working on a job, I will

talk to anyone who calls me,” he says.

Once a quote is accepted, the job is

started within 10 days, with installation

on an average sized house taking one to

two days. Rohan also does any necessary

minor repair jobs on the roof at the same

time.

To discuss your requirements with

Gumleaf Gutter Guard, phone 0800 486

Bath, shower or both?

If you want to update your bathroom,

a new bath or shower can make a huge

difference but there are lots of different

choices available.

Depending on the size of your bathroom

you may want a separate bath and shower

or a shower over the bath.

Choosing a shower you would think

would be an easy decision but like baths

there are lots of options available. What

shape would suit the space the best –

corner, square, round, floorless, angled?

The actual shape is determined by what

works best in terms of how much room

you need to move around and where the

other items are eg basin, toilet and bath.

Standing in a shower at a showroom will

give you more idea of how spacious it feels.

Another question is whether a walk-in

option that sits flush with the floor would

work or if you have young children a

shub with a deeper tray would be a useful

addition to the bathroom.

Next up is the type of door – again this

will depend on the size and shape of the

shower. Would a sliding door work in

terms of taking up less space.

What about storage in the shower such

as a built-in shelf or cavity and, depending

on the household’s needs, the addition of a

foot rest or seat could be useful.

The range of baths is also extensive,

whether you need one for the children

or for having a long soak. With so many

options available it needs to suit your style

– and the space available.

A freestanding bath is the ultimate visual

statement and, with the right design, can

create a feeling of space. Keeping the bath

well away from the wall makes it much

easier to clean.

Inset baths are ideal for bath/shower

combos as run-off water can be contained.

Inset baths are available with two straight

ends, two curved ends, or one of each.

Two curved ends, or a double-ended bath,

is a great choice for families with more

than one child.

If space is limited in your bathroom, you

can use a built-in corner bath to make the

most of every inch.

With so many choices available, the best

place is to work out what suits the needs of

your household. Then measure the space

and create a basic plan that shows where

the windows and door are, and which

way it opens, and take this along to your

bathroom supplier.

By doing this, some of the decisions

about what would work best in your

bathroom are already made.

For more information there is plenty of

information online at a range of supplier

and designer websites.

the Selwyn district for 14 years with Greg

Horton and his team of four qualified master

electricians dedicated to the local community

– and there is no service vehicle charge for

Rolleston.

Juice Electrical can help with all your electrical

needs providing a professional and timely

service whether it is residential, commercial or

industrial, indoors or outdoors.

“We pride ourselves on going the extra mile

particularly with repair and renovation work

and we’re very strong on maintenance,” says

Greg.

“We advise anyone needing electrical work

to always use a Master Electrician so they can

provide continuity of service and, if there are

any problems, they can sort them out.”

It is also a good time to be thinking about

how your outdoor areas could be enhanced and

accentuated with strategically placed outdoor

lighting – and all looks nice from inside during

the evening.

Greg suggests LED (light emitting diode)

lighting as it is a lot easier and less expensive to

install because there is no need to dig trenches

for wiring. He also recommends installing

sensors so the lights come on automatically.

Juice Electrical knows a lot about LED

outdoor lighting including up-lighting, deck

lighting and floodlights as well as security

lighting and can advise on the best type and

where they should be placed.

“We discuss the customer’s ideas with

them, show them photos of other gardens

with attractive outdoor lighting and make

suggestions on how they can make the most of

their outdoor area with a range of LED lighting

options,” says Greg.

In fact LED lights are fast becoming the

preferred option for indoor lighting as well.

“The technology has taken off and is replacing

halogen and incandescent bulbs for the home.

Low voltage LED technology has advanced

from being initially used in calculators and then

torches to being suitable for lighting anywhere

in the home and we highly recommend them.”

Look out for the brightly coloured Juice

Electrical vans as they work hard to look after

the Selwyn district’s electrical needs. Call Greg

Hydroseeding perfect

solution for your new lawn

Hydroseeding is a cost effective and

efficient way of creating a new, great

looking lawn in only a couple of weeks.

Locally owned by Zac and Ashley

Swale, Canterbury Lawns specialises in

hydroseeding, a spray-on application

of water, grass seed, wood fibre mulch,

fertiliser and tackifier (a glue which

holds the mix to the surface it is sprayed

on). This method give the best chance

for the seeds to germinate and become

your beautiful green and luscious lawn.

Providing it is well maintained and the

conditions are right, it takes two to six

weeks to see the results depending on the

season.

Hydroseeding can be done any time of

the year as the products used are suited

to the season but in summer your lawn

will germinate much faster. Watering

is key and Zac recommends having an

automated irrigation system installed to

make the job easier, more convenient and

more efficient in terms of water use and

he can advise regarding the best type of

sprinklers for your needs.

Zac and the team are also specialists

in erosion and dust control for both

commercial and residential areas.

Their hydroseeder can hold large

quantities at a time making the

job more efficient and they source

top quality products to suit each

job. This can be for work sites,

BMX tracks, driveways, quarries,

construction yards, slopes, swales

and more. Anywhere dust or

erosion is an issue, they can find a

solution to best fix the problem.

Canterbury Lawns also installs

roll-out instant lawns using top

quality products which are locally

sourced and, as part of their

service, also provides an after care sheet

with advice about looking after your new

lawn.

Landscaping is another part of the

Canterbury Lawns service, whether

you need garden preparation, site

clearing, retaining walls, paving or paths.

They not only work close to home on

residential properties but also specialise

in commercial and larger-scale work,

bringing to any job a high level of both

expertise and enthusiasm.

FEBRUARY IS a busy month

for harvesting fruit and

gathering mature vegetables.

It can be a little challenging

with typically very dry weather

and strong winds. With daily

care, you can limit the impact

on your garden.

Vegetable gardens –

Where vegetable gardens have

been well cared for, summer

vegetables should be prolific

in February. This includes aubergines,

beans (climber and

dwarf), beetroot, courgettes,

cucumbers, lettuce, radishes,

tomatoes, pumpkins and zucchinis.

Continue to replant

quick maturing summer veggies

like dwarf beans, lettuce/

salad greens and radishes.

Remove plants after they have

cropped and add them to the

compost bin. Maintain a regular

watering regime and apply

side dressings of vegetable fertiliser

around slow-maturing

vegetables. Towards the end

of the month, begin planting

“winter vegetables” like broccoli,

cabbages and cauliflower

which will allow you to harvest

these in early winter.

Flowering annuals

– Flower gardens and containers

should be resplendent

in colour as summer annuals

peak in their display. Varieties

include alyssum, calendulas,

nemesia, pansies, petunias,

salvias, portulacas and zinnias.

Remember to trim petunias to

ensure continual flowering. It’s

worth noting that marigolds

are now available in a variety

of colours and sizes and are

possibly the most indestructible

summer annual to grow.

Bulbs – The end of

February marks the beginning

of the bulb planting season

and garden centres will now

stock a full range of bulbs.

Preparation for bulb planting

is similar to preparation for

vegetables and flowering

annuals. Dig over the soil

thoroughly, adding generous

HEALTHY:

Now is a

good time to

apply rose

fertiliser.

amounts of compost. Ensure

the soil is well-drained and

the site receives full sun.

Some varieties of bulbs to

plant include; anemones,

crocus, daffodils, freesias,

hyacinth, iris, lachenalias,

nerines, ranunculus, tulips and

watsonias. Mark where you

have planted your bulbs with a

label that identifies the species

and date of planting.

Fruit trees – It’s harvest

time for late-season peaches

and plums, and the beginning

of apple and pear season.

Young fruit is now forming on

all citrus trees so water regularly.

This is especially important

for younger trees

to prevent fruit fall. Mulch

to help maintain soil moisture.

Strawberries – Fruiting

of strawberries has now

finished. Allow plants to grow

vigorously to provide runners

for next season planting.

Keep strawberry beds weeded,

plants mulched and water

to maintain strong, vigorous

growth.

Raspberries – In most

seasons, there will be a second

crop of raspberries in February

– not as prolific as the earlier

crop, but often quite plentiful.

Continue thinning and removing

excess growth.

Roses – Towards the end

of the month, roses will perk

up again and start providing

beautiful displays of flowers.

It’s also a good time to start

applying rose fertiliser. Remove

any diseased leaves and

spray regularly to keep rust

and black spot at bay. Add a

good layer of compost around

plants.

Lawns – It’s not an

easy month to maintain an

attractive lawn, especially if

your water supply is limited.

As with last month, leave

lawns to grow a little longer

than normal to help ‘catch’ and

retain any decent rainfall.

with intelligro

February can still bring plenty of hot weather and with a lack of rain

we really need to make sure we are keeping our gardens well-watered.

There are still plenty of tasks to complete, dead-heading, harvesting,

trimming, mulching and planting to name a few.

handy tip

Water timers are super handy, just set

the sprinkler going and leave it to do its

magic. Remember to water early in the

morning or early evening. Watering during

the heat of the day will result in a lot of

the water evaporating, and it can burn

plant’s leaves if the water droplets sit on

the plant and the sun shines on them.

Why mulch?

Plants prefer growing in an environment that remains

relatively constant. Soil temperature and moisture

levels can be affected by the weather (e.g. drying out

or getting too hot) and mulching helps to keep the soil

environment more even.

It also helps to reduce weeds coming through. At the

right depth, it can create a barrier so the weed seeds

cannot get enough sunlight to germinate. Who doesn’t

want less weeding???

Mitsubishi Outlander Sport priced for value

CAR MAKERS have become

increasingly aware of the need for

safety.

I applaud that, and most of

the cars now sold new are high

on safety kit. Mitsubishi, in

particular, build with state-of-theart

passive and active elements.

However, there are some drivers

who don’t want or need all of the

trick warning features, and in most

cases manufacturers have offered

the function to switch many of

them off – lane departure warning,

blind spot monitoring, rear cross

traffic alert, to name a few.

Mitsubishi has gone one

step further, it has completely

deleted some of those electronic

safety elements from the

Outlander, not all variants, but a

limited edition Outlander Sport

has arrived and it sits a valuepacked

$39,990.

For the alarmists, that hasn’t

affected the Outlander’s excellent

five-star Australasian New Car

Assessment Program safety rating,

it is still intact, and if you have just

$40k to spend on an Outlander

and want those passive features,

the XLS has them, along with

VRX ($45k).

To my way of thinking, the

Outlander Sport is great buying,

and it would be the sport utility

vehicle for me, it is one which

allows the driver to trust his

own judgement around spatial

awareness.

The Outlander has been with us

since the early 2000s and, while it

has had several model lifecycles

along the way, the concept hasn’t

changed, it is the quintessential

SUV that has blitzed the New

Zealand new car market over the

years, and has been a popular

used Japanese import. It stands

out for its ease of use, practicality,

functionality and, what’s more, it’s

just a darn nice vehicle to drive, it

feels so right in all areas.

The new Sport is available

only as a limited edition model,

the first batch has a production

run of just 300 units, although

another shipment is likely to

follow.

The Sport is a four-wheel-drive

model and comes with seven seats

(fronts heated and electrically

adjustable), full leather trim,

electric sunroof, electric tailgate,

keyless entry and ignition, and

8in multi-media dashboard

display. It also gets extra cosmetic

treatment – big spoiler, 18in black

wheels, and a host of piano black

cosmetic trim detailing.

Elsewhere, the Outlander Sport

is the desirable SUV which I

mentioned in my introduction.

It has a comfortable interior

MITSUBISHI OUTLANDER SPORT: Bargain price at $39,990.

environment, and is spacious.

The cargo area measures up to

1608-litres, which is enough

capacity to carry those tricky

items we tend to move from time

to time such as the cardboard

box the Kiddie-household’s new

television came in.

While it carries a Sport badge,

mechanically the Outlander

retains the tried and true

powerplant which has essentially

served it since its introduction.

It’s a 2.4-litre four-cylinder petrol

engine (diesel available in other

variants), and is hooked to a

continuously variable automatic.

Mitsubishi claims 126kW

and 224Nm of torque from the

engine, these are par figures and

contribute to good performance

under all conditions – bearing in

mind that many SUVS are used

for towing, and the Outlander

in this form is rated with a

1600kg tow rating. In terms

of acceleration, there’s enough

strength from under the bonnet

to record a 9sec standstill to

100km/h time.

It is also an engine that has

been continually developed so

that fuel usage is minimised.

Mitsubishi also claims a

combined cycle average of

7.2-litres per 100km.

That is consistent with the fuel

usage readout in the evaluation

car, it was constantly sitting

around 9l/100km during both

inner city driving and on a

highway loop.

I used the roads near the

Selwyn River to evaluate the

Sport, it sits beautifully on the

road and whisks through the

air without overly noticeable

sound.

Power is channelled to the

front wheels – spreading to all

four when slippage up front is

detected. A centre console switch

can be pressed to dial in fullyengaged

four-wheel-drive and

centre diff lock.

I only left the seal for a short

excursion into the loose shingle.

SUVs aren’t really off-roaders

as such, but with 190mm of

ground clearance the Outlander

does have genuine cross-country

ability, it can be presented

with undulating terrain with

confidence. It steers directly

in deep shingle and it has

suspension which absorbs well

ruts and corrugations.

The Mitsubishi Motor

Corporation likes to have long

life-cycles for its models. I’m a big

believer in that. Too often good

cars aren’t with us long enough,

yet it’s fair to say the Outlander

has been kept fresh and modern

along the way, it is an example of

how well a vehicle can do with

solid engineering practices and

clever marketing.

RENOWNED FOR

BUILDING QUALITY

VILLAGES

Since 1985, family owned and

operated Manor Group Investments

have met the needs of people in their

retirement, developing and operating

retirement facilities, and introducing

the ‘own your own’ village concept.

Manor Group proudly presents

Woodcroft Estate, a lifestyle village

its residents will collectively own, and

one which offers security, freedom

and the financial benefit of home

ownership, with 100% capital gain and

no retention fees when a unit is sold.

A LIFESTYLE VILLAGE YOU

WILL LOVE TO LIVE IN

Woodcroft Estate is a lifestyle village offering

spacious homes with gardens in a safe and

supportive environment, while affording residents

their independence.

LARGE OPEN PLAN LIVING

A total of 78 units are planned for Woodcroft

Estate comprising: 62 two and three bedroom

duplexes and 16 three bedroom standalones. Units

range in size from 127sqm to 173sqm with the

option of single or double garaging, and priced

from $425,000. There is a range of design layouts

to choose from, to suit individual budgets and

lifestyle needs. All units are designed for energy

efficiency and constructed to a high standard from

modern low maintenance materials.

There will be a full-time manager along with a

pavilion, outdoor community area with barbecue,

and bowling green, due to be constructed in 2020.

While units are owned under a Licence to Occupy,

residents investing in a lifestyle at Woodcroft Estate

choose the sale price and receive 100% capital gain.

Dawn and Graham

RESIDENTS SHARE THEIR STORIES

Dawn and Graham:

“We were attracted to Woodcroft

Estate’s village design, spaciousness,

maintenance-free features, quality

finish, and because we could choose

how our new home was fitted-out.

We love the positive daily fellowship

between residents and the regular

get-togethers. We’re handy to

Rolleston’s shopping centre (a

20 minute flat walk). We can sell

and move on without a built-in

depreciation expense. We moved

from a much larger home and

property yet we’ve lost nothing. We

have a larger than normal floor space

for a villa with a double garage.”

Ann and Ken:

“On deciding to downsize we

considered the options. We

chose Woodcroft lifestyle

village because it’s not going

to be too big, it’s a quality

build, has locked security

gates at night, and we retain

full capital investment with

no retention fees going to

the developer. Maintenance,

gardening and lawn mowing

are done for us so we can

travel worry-free. We welcome

new residents to our ‘happy

family’. We’re very pleased we

chose Woodcroft Estate.”

Carol and Phil:

“We moved into our two bedroom home 16

months ago. We’re very settled and happy. Our

home is spacious with plenty of storage and it

was nice to hand over the maintenance, lawns

and gardens to someone else. We’ve made some

good friends. They’re like a supportive family.

We’re so glad we made the move when we did.”

Warren and Pam:

“We are enjoying our time living in Woodcroft

Lifestyle Village, love our 3 bedroom townhouse,

we think this is a great investment with 100%

capital gain with the Manor Group.”

As residents, Ian and

Ngaire Stewart say:

“We moved into Woodcroft

Estate in August 2019. For

us it has been the correct

decision that we decided to

made this move. one of the

crucial motivations for us was

that we can retain the capital

gain on our investment.

We have made many new

friends and enjoy the quiet

relaxed environment that the

Woodcroft Estate provides

impressive.

A second formal lounge with a gas fire awaits and, across

from here, the formal dining room lends itself to those

more up-market dinner parties.

Getting what

you paid for on

settlement day

In the movies, the day someone gets

the keys to their newly bought home is

portrayed as a golden, stress-free time. The

reality can be rather different, especially

if you find your dream home has turned

into something akin to Nightmare On

Elm Street since you agreed to buy it.

“The trick to a stress-free settlement

is to do as much as you can in advance,

starting with when you’re signing the sale

and purchase agreement,” advises Kevin

Lampen-Smith, chief executive of the

Real Estate Agents Authority (REAA).

“The sale and purchase agreement is the

legally-binding contract agreed between

you and the seller that details the property,

the conditions of sale and the price.

Make sure that there is an agreed list of

chattels, with notes as to their condition,

in this agreement. If the property is full of

rubbish, and you want it gone before you

take possession, make that a condition of

the sale. If there are holes in the fence that

the seller has promised to fix, get that in

writing on the agreement: don’t rely on

verbal assurances that something will be

done prior to settlement. It’s far better

to get all these niggly details sorted out

before you sign the agreement than face

protracted battles down the track.”

As a buyer, you are generally entitled to

one opportunity to inspect the property

before settlement day. If the property has

sitting tenants, ask your lawyer to ensure

there is a ‘final inspection’ clause inserted

in the sale and purchase agreement before

you sign it. This inspection is to make

sure that it is in the same or better order

it was when you viewed it and agreed to

the sale. It is not designed to give you the

chance to uncover new defects, or to give

a rental agent the chance to appraise the

place’s value.

“A seller does not have to accommodate

any extra requests to visit the property

prior to settlement,” Lampen-Smith says.

“Remember that the seller may have a

lot on their plate; making the property

available so your interior decorator can

measure up for new curtains is unlikely

to be a high priority.”

Your real estate agent will usually

arrange the inspection with the seller,

and accompany you to the property. Most

experts recommend that this inspection

takes place around 24 hours before

settlement day so there are no hold-ups

to the transfer of funds and ownership.

When you come to inspect the property,

everything should be as it was when you

decided to purchase it (as reflected by the

sale and purchase agreement). Lampen-

Smith says you can expect chattels to be in

a reasonable working order unless it has

been agreed and documented otherwise.

You cannot complain to the seller that

the oven isn’t clean enough, but you can

raise a complaint if it is missing, or it is

a different model to the one cited in the

agreement. Don’t forget to check that

garage door openers and pool covers are

in situ, or that locks work properly.

If there is a problem, the REAA says

you should speak to the real estate agent

and your lawyer in the first instance. They

can help you negotiate with the seller to

remedy any issues, such as a newly broken

window or missing keys. Your lawyer

should work with the seller’s lawyer to

reach a satisfactory solution, such as

getting the seller to make any necessary

repairs, or to deduct any costs from the

eventual settlement.

Making the final inspection 24 hours

before settlement is due gives you and the

seller time to reach an agreement over

anything outstanding. This is important,

because if you do not complete settlement

on the due date and the seller can

demonstrate that they were able and

willing to complete their side of the

settlement, then you will be liable for

interest on any portion of the purchase

price that is unpaid. The seller does not

need to give you access to the property

while any amount remains outstanding.

“Like any property transaction, success

often depends on doing things right at the

start,” Lampen-Smith says.

“Get the details right at the beginning

and you’ve got a greater chance of a happy

ending.”

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

Investing in Selwyn

Business owner: Big Red

Business owner: Emma Langton-George

Synonymous with the Ray White real estate brand is the

colour yellow. It is seen on their advertising signs promoting

residential property throughout Selwyn.

With three offices strategically located in Rolleston, Lincoln

and West Melton, supported by a team of 25 agents who work

as one cohesive team, it is not surprising Ray White has a

significant local presence and outstanding sales figures for the

district. They have completed over 4,500 house sales in the last

12 years.

The successful and well-respected Selwyn Ray White Town

& Lifestyle group is led by business owners, Brendan ‘Big Red’

Shefford and Emma Langton-George, supported by previous

business owners Sarah Booth, and Steve and Leanne Morgan.

“Our salespeople form the largest real estate team in the

Selwyn district. We are proud of the fact that a number of the

team have been with us since day one,” advises Nick Hallpike

who is Group Manager for Town and Lifestyle Group.

Everyone in the team lives locally in relation to the three

offices. They share an ethos of working together to ensure

every client receives the very best service and experience,

whether buying or selling a property.

The experience and knowledge of agents, along with regular

in-house and external training sessions, management support,

coaching, updates on law changes and other topical issues,

ensures professionalism and best practice is adhered to.

Everyone in the sales team has access to the Ray White

database, allowing them to introduce buyers to all listings.

They will also work with other agents from other companies

to ensure the very best buyer is found for every home they are

selling.

“This protects the value of the seller’s home while ensuring

the best price is achieved, all reasons why many clients

‘recommend, refer and return’ when they have real estate

needs,” says Nick Hallpike.

Nick Booth, Branch Manager of the Lincoln office, believes

the firm’s technology is a key strength.

He says: “The pro-active approach to open homes provides

transparency, as well as open and honest feedback for

homeowners who have 24/7 private log-in access to view the

statistics and comments made by every viewer of their home.”

Ray White Town & Lifestyle offer a free appraisal service.

They can also offer advice on how to best prepare a home for

sale, whether recommending tradespeople or home stylists to

enhance the home’s appeal or connecting clients with legal,

financial or property management advice. The firm even has a

JP on the team to witness any legal documentation.

The Selwyn Ray White team work hard, supporting their

clients as well as local organisations, events and individuals

through sponsorship and fundraising throughout the year.

Nick Hallpike reiterates the importance of giving back to the

community, something which he believes has strengthened

their trusted personal and business bond in Selwyn.

Building on a budget

Building your own home is one of the biggest investments of a lifetime and with

a few clever tips we show you how to make the most of what you can afford.

17

Get smart with your money to achieve

your dream home without compromising

on what’s really important.

Consider buying a large plot of land with

friends or family which you can split into

smaller lots. Many great

locations tend to cover

more ground, so get the

stunning harbour view

you dream of by sharing

the cost with someone you

don’t mind having as a

neighbour.

Opting for lowmaintenance

building

materials, like vinyl siding

and metal roofing saves in

the long run. Although

they may be more

expensive to install you

will save money on future

repairs, replacement or

repainting.

Using salvaged and recycled

materials and componentry

from the abundance of

demolition sites around the

city not only adds valuable

character to new builds, but

can save money, too.

For the safety and security

of your home, don’t skimp on structural

elements, doors and windows. Buy the

very best you can afford and, together

with your architect or builder, determine

other areas you could save on to allow for

a few luxuries.

It’s important not to waste valuable cash

on overbuilding. Look carefully at the

existing properties in the area and be

Deciding exactly

what you want

and then sticking with

it will ensure you stay

on budget, on time,

and all with

minimal stress.

aware that building a home that is bigger

and better than those of your neighbours

will not necessarily equate to a fair price

if and when it’s time to sell. instead, the

value of your build will be determined

by the lower-priced homes

around it.

The experience of a wellqualified

contractor is an

invaluable asset in any

building project. Not only

will you have recourse

should anything go wrong,

but their experience in

the industry means they

will have established

relationships with suppliers

and subcontractors, whom

they trust to deliver the best

workmanship possible.

Keep a close eye on

construction allowances as

your home is being built

to ensure you are getting

what you asked for and

what you paid for. if you

had initially agreed on

using a specific brand, for

example, then don’t settle

for less, unless you discuss

a cost adjustment with your

builder or contractor.

Many a building project has snowballed

out of control in the financial department

due to changes being made to the design

and materials once building is already

underway. Deciding exactly what you

want and then sticking with it will ensure

you stay on budget, within your expected

time frame, and all with minimal stress.

Buying a lifestyle block

City life getting you down? Dreaming of

living in the country, where you ‘commute’

from the breakfast table to a barn or your

home office? It might look like an easy life but

buying a lifestyle property can be a complex

business.

While living in the country has much

to recommend it, you need to do more

preparation for buying a place there than

buying a pair of gumboots and comparing

the merits of ride-on mowers.

“We recommend comprehensive due

diligence when buying any kind of property,

but rural ones come with a whole extra set of

things to think about compared to buying a

straightforward stand-alone home in town,”

says Kevin Lampen-Smith, chief executive of

the Real Estate Authority (REA).

Lampen-Smith says that while it’s tempting

to focus on the dream wish list for your

bucolic bolt-hole, but you should also

compile a list of issues to be aware of (and

people who can help you learn about them).

“If the property you like is being sold by a

licensed real estate agent, remember that you

can ask them anything you like about it,” he

says.

“Rural real estate agents have special skills

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

figure out what information you need to

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

good idea to get your lawyer onboard early to

check titles, consents and other information

that you gather in the process.”

It might feel like you’re getting away from

it all when moving out of town, but rural

developments can be subject to rules that

restrict what you can do. Lampen-Smith

recommends getting your lawyer to check if

there are any covenants on the property that

might have an impact on a future business

you may run there, or any planned building

projects. You don’t want to invest in an

alpaca herd for your new dream property

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

livestock. Similarly, it would be tough to

discover that your subdivision plans are not

permitted by council rules.

Be aware that there may be tax implications

if you’re planning to use the property as a

business, Lampen-Smith says.

“In general, if it is currently being used for

a business that is tax-registered – whether

that’s selling organic eggs, grazing stock

or running a B&B – then the seller will

probably add GST to the price. This means

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

also registered for GST. Ask your lawyer or

accountant to check if the house or any other

buildings on the property are GST-exempt.

They will also be able to advise you on

whether you need to be GST-registered.”

A good place to start when trying to figure

out what tax obligations might attach to your

purchase of the property is Inland Revenue’s

property tax decision tree (available at

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

but keep in mind that it is always best to

seek professional advice before you make a

decision.

Rural properties (like all properties) can

also have easements on the title that relate to

access, water or power. Lampen-Smith says

you should ask your lawyer to check the title

and work out what the easements are, and

how they will have an impact on your rights

and responsibilities as an owner.

“For example, if the title allows a neighbour

access to a piece of their land through your

property, do you have any right to limit the

type and frequency of that access if you buy

it?”

Be aware too that there may be ‘unofficial’

easements operating; the incumbent owners

may have an informal arrangement with their

neighbours, but this may not remain when

the property passes into new ownership.

Things that we take for granted when living

in urban environments, like water, sewage

and access, can require more involvement in

rural areas. Check the water sources for the

property – if it has its own bore, are there

limits on the amount of water you can draw

from it? What is the process for ensuring it is

safe to drink? What happens to wastewater

and sewage? Are you prepared for life with

a septic tank? Will the current owner ensure

the tank is empty as a condition of sale?

When it comes to access, will you share

a private road or right of way with other

properties? What will be your responsibilities

and potential costs for maintaining it? Don’t

forget that your neighbours may be involved

in unglamorous activities at ungodly hours –

check the zoning rules for nearby properties

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

You might think it’s lovely to have stock

grazing out the window, but are you ready for

a milk tanker driving past every morning? Be

aware that the LIM will not always alert you

to any pending or current NZTA decisions

regarding local highway linkages that often

divert traffic away from urban centres in

favour of immediate rural areas on the town

boundary. Check with NZTA if you think

your property could be affected by road

changes.

“Like all property purchases, buying a place

in the country requires careful, objective

consideration,” Lampen-Smith says.

“There are lots of great things about living

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

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

I met a few weeks ago, who mournfully told

me that their lifestyle block had become “a

life sentence”. Do your homework and you’re

far more likely to live happily ever after in

rural bliss.”
