Shelter belt fire risk

HORORATA resident Mike

Davies says ineffective shelter

belts must be a firefighter’s

worst nightmare as the district

continues to dry out.

Shelter belts are vegetative

barriers that are designed to

reduce wind speed and protect

soil from erosion.

Said Mr Davies: “The issue

is a lot of the ones I have been

seeing are wide and solid, when

a good shelter belt is 50 per cent

porous so the wind can flow

through it, otherwise it hits the

trees and comes over the top.

“In the process of letting

them get wide and topping

them, the trees fill up with a lot

of dead material that is highly

flammable and because those

bits are not attached, if you get

a fire they’re like little torches

getting blown out with the

wind.”

Fire and Emergency NZ fire

risk management officer Kerri

Pring said this can be a fire

risk.

“We have discussed the issue,

mainly with property owners

on a one-to-one basis if we

happen to be on their land at

the time.”

THe advice is to keep shelter

belts trimmed tightly and at

a manageable height, she

said.

“THis will allow firefighters to

access the interior of the shelter

belt and also allow helicopters

to fly over it.

get in touch

from the editor’s desk

ANOTHER STEP in the long running

saga of the police undercover Operation

Inca which led to an investigation into the

harness racing industry has come and gone.

In the Selwyn Times today we report

on phone conversations between one of

Canterbury’s leading harness trainers Nigel McGrath and a high

profile Canterbury businessman which are now public.

The businessman, a big punter, is associated with McGrath’s

stable and the conversations bugged by police effectively revolve

around two horses trained by McGrath in a race at Addington

Raceway in March, 2018.

It was alleged the businessman was given a steer as to which

horse he should punt.

The businessman, and others who also have name suppression,

appear in the district court next month on charges relating to Inca.

protection in the pipeline

• By Devon Bolger

MORE THAN $400,000 of flood

protection works are planned for

Hororata this year.

The proposed work plan for

the projects was presented to the

Malvern Community Board at

its meeting on Monday.

There have been a number

of notable flooding events in

Hororata in recent years, two in

2018 and two last year.

The town’s average annual

rainfall is about 790mm/year

and flooding generally occurs

during prolonged rain events

over multiple days.

The proposed work plan

includes a number of projects

aimed at reducing flooding.

Happy Jacks Creek is to be

cleared about April and floodgates

are expected to be installed

next month.

A diversion drain will be

installed to move water away

from entering the township on

Hawkins Rd.

The smaller culverts along the

existing drain on the road will

be upgraded and old water race

culverts will be opened.

A water level monitor will be

clearing as part of planned works to improve flood protection in

the township.

installed at the roundabout on

Bealey Rd and options are being

discussed for a permanent onsite

pump.

The drain on Bealey Rd will be

reinstated to allow for an alternative

discharge point for flood

water at the roundabout.

The work will begin after the

diversion drain is complete.

Extensive willow clearing is

planned for Cordy’s Stream and

the Hororata River as well as

gravel removal to improve flood

flows.

Resource consent is needed

for the project and the district

council is continuing to work

with Environment Canterbury to

scope the work required.

Over the last financial year, a

number of projects have been

completed to improve the stormwater

system in Hororata.

Drains have been cleaned on

a number of channels and are

now included in annual routine

maintenance.

A manhole has been installed

at the roundabout in the township

to allow for easy access to

pump water when the flap gate

shuts.

Small flap gates were installed

on the sump discharge pipes into

Hawkins Rd drain which helps

backflow from the drain flowing

over into private properties.

A gravel bar in Cordy’s stream

just downstream of the bridge

has been removed resulting in

better flow through the stream.

The Downs Rd Water Course

that flows behind the struggler

blocks on Hororata Rd has been

cleared down to Cordy’s Stream

to help drain water away from

the Downs and Hororata Rds

intersection.

The Happy Jacks Creek ford

on Plantation Rd has had extra

material placed lifting the level of

the road.

Power bills should drop for winter

Companies

set to pass

on Orion cut

• By Jess Gibson

SELWYN RESIDENTS could see

a small drop in their power bills

in time for winter.

Electricity lines company

Orion will be reducing its prices

by an average of six per cent from

April 1.

The district council and

Christchurch City Councilowned

company distributes

power to 204,000 homes and

businesses in Canterbury.

But whether the reduction

in Orion’s prices is reflected in

people’s power bills will be up to

individual electricity companies.

The reduction in Orion’s prices

reflects a decrease of 7.4 per

cent in its cost of distribution,

partially off-set by a 1.4 per cent

increase in transmission costs

from the national grid operator,

Transpower.

Orion’s charges for distribution

• From page 1

“You should also make sure it

is trimmed low around power

lines and don’t have electric

fences up against the hedge.”

There is a low chance of a fire

starting in a shelter belt but if one

breaks out in the surrounding

areas, it will add fuel to the fire,

Mrs Pring said.

Mr Davies is a volunteer

for Selwyn Gets Ready and a

member of the New Zealand

and transmission costs combined

represent 36 per cent of the average

household power bill.

Consumer NZ head of research

Jessica Wilson said the changes

would shave an average of about

$3 off a monthly power bill. She

Meridian Energy is also likely

to drop its pricing.

Said a Meridian spokeswoman:

“We are still working through

She said Meridian Energy will

within the next few weeks.

A Contact Energy spokeswoman

the company is working

on price changes across the country

but did not have anything to

share in terms of its approach at

the moment.

Said Orion chief executive Rob

Jamieson: “The key component

of the price reduction is the lower

interest rate environment, which

the Commerce Commission

has factored in to our cost of

distribution.”

Environmental projects under way

AN ENVIRONMENTAL trust

is working with the Department

of Conservation on a number

of environmental projects near

Arthur’s Pass.

The Waimakariri Environment

and Recreation Trust is a

stakeholder group assisting DoC

with its work in the area.

It includes installing fencing

around Lake Lyndon, new

facilities near Lake Pearson and

the expansion of the car park at

Kura Tawhiti, south of Castle

Hill station homestead.

Arthur’s Pass National Park

senior ranger Chris Stewart said:

“DoC very much appreciates

the help it gets from community

groups such as the WERT.”

The trust deliberates on a wide

range of topics, including major

projects such as wasp control

in the Craigieburn forest area,

a management plan for Lake

PROTECT: This cable and

post barrier around Lake

Lyndon is preventing

damage to rare vegetation.

Lyndon and feral cat control in

the basin, trust secretary Helen

Hamblin said.

“The trust is involved in developments

around Lake Lyndon,

the closest natural fresh-water

lake to Christchurch, and is

assisting DoC in the writing of

a long-term management plan,”

she said.

A more recent project targets

feral cat control in the upper

Waimakariri basin.

“Locals have detected a big

increase in their numbers over

recent years and unfortunately it

appears that dumped domestic

cats are a major part of the

problem.”

Back in the summer of

2014/15, WERT member Penny

Wright started the Craigieburn

wasp control project.

“It was successful, and control

continues to this day,” Ms

Wright said.

The pressure on public land

adjacent to State Highway 73 in

the upper Waimakariri basin is

increasing rapidly, and is in part

being addressed in a great alpine

highway plan, she said.

Ms Wright said the group is a

key stakeholder in implementing

this plan.

Flemington subdivision

site chosen for new

Lincoln supermarket

• By Devon Bolger

THE Countdown

supermarket planned

for Lincoln will be in the

Flemington subdivision.

Countdown’s head

of property Matt

Grainger said they are

planning to build a 3000m 2

supermarket on Birchs Rd.

If resource consent is

granted, it would include

170 car parks and a cafe.

Said Mr Grainger:

“We’ve been looking for a

suitable site in Lincoln for

some while to help service

this growing area and are

very pleased to have found

this great site on Birchs Rd.

“It’s one of the fastestgrowing

parts of the

country, and we think a

Countdown supermarket

would be a valuable addition

to the community

and local residents’ grocery

needs.”

A district council

spokesman confirmed they

have received a resource

consent application for the

development.

It is currently going

through the consenting

process, the spokesman said.

Lincoln’s first supermarket,

a New World, has been

operating on Gerald St

since 2005.

But a booming

population has led to rapid

growth in the township.

Figures released by

analysts Infometrics earlier

this month show Lincoln

was the fastest growing

town in the district last

year, with its population

increasing by 10 per cent to

7380 people.

The national average of

population growth in the

last year was 1.6 per cent.

The announcement

for Lincoln comes after

construction began on a

FreshChoice supermarket

for Prebbleton.

The development is on

track to be opened this year.

A Woolworths New

Zealand spokeswoman

said they are starting to

see some progress with the

project.

“The structural steel

frames have gone up which

is great. We’re excited to be

able to bring a new Fresh-

Choice store to Prebbleton

to help service the local

customers.”

She said the store is on

track to be completed mid

this year.

The supermarket will be

1300m 2 and will open 7am-

10pm, seven days a week.

Deputy Mayor Malcolm

Lyall said it is exciting for

the community and he

has been pushing for a

development like this in

the area.

“There have been various

projects come up that have

never come to fruition.

Seeing this new player

come in and be really

excited to get something

going is awesome.

“It will definitely be an

asset to the community.

At the moment we have to

travel to Halswell or Lincoln

and there are about 5000

people in Prebbleton now so

to have a supermarket the

community can walk to is

fantastic,” he said.

Group opposing hazardous

waste site prepared for court

• By Devon Bolger

A GROUP fighting for wider

consultation around a hazardous

waste facility planned near

Prebbleton says they are prepared

to go to the High Court.

About 45 members protested

outside of the Environment

Canterbury office last week and

some were invited into a regional

council meeting happening at

the time.

Resident Chris Hutchinson

said at the meeting: “It was

mentioned that we could go to

judicial review and we would

love to do that and we would love

for ECan not to challenge that.”

A judicial review means the

high court would look at the process

ECan followed in reaching

that decision rather than remaking

the decision itself.

Resident Angela Jones said that

option could cost them about

$50,000.

“We’re hoping we don’t have

to. We are hoping at the hearing

there will be enough to have it

thrown out.

“We would ideally like to do

the hearing first and if the concerns

aren’t listened to then we

will do the review,” she said.

FUMING: Protesters from the group fighting against a hazardous

waste facility going in near Prebbleton standing outside the

Environment Canterbury office. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN ​

Mrs Jones said a givealittle

page is expected to be set up this

week for donations.

Waste Management Ltd applied

to expand its current site

and operate a waste stabilisation

and treatment facility at 305

Marshs Rd.

In its resource consent application,

it said the plant will

treat and manage items such as

pesticides, acids, used tyres and

many more types of rubbish.

Resource consent was granted

for the proposed plant by the

Christchurch City Council in

December 2018.

ECan also granted three

consents for its construction

and discharge of stormwater in

March 2019.

The consent application currently

with ECan is only for activities

resulting in discharge to air.

It ran a limited notified

consent process, which meant

•HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you

devon.bolger@starmedia.kiwi

only people within 500m of the

proposed facility had a chance to

have their say.

More than 5,500 people have

signed an online petition calling

for the decision to be overturned

and wider consultation to be

conducted.

Prebbleton businessman Hamish

Prebble was within the 500m

limited notification and has made

a submission against the facility.

He said one of his biggest issues

is the lack of credible detail in the

resource consent application.

“Waste Management has the

contract to handle and dispose of

any pesticides, herbicides, fungicides

and any other substances

collected through the Christchurch

Recovery Centre.

“It has the potential to include all

chemicals from A-Z. How could

they guarantee they could mitigate

any potential risks?” he said.

An ECan spokesman said they

have sought further information

from Waste Management Ltd for

the application.

It includes an assessment of

emissions of toxic compounds

from the site, limits on the number

of pesticides to be processed and a

site management plan.

Coriander’s

put into

liquidation

• By Sophie Cornish

THE OWNER of Coriander’s

Rolleston is facing worker

exploitation charges and has had

four of his businesses put into

liquidation.

Last month it was revealed Coriander’s

Ethnic Indian Restaurants

owner Amar Deep Singh is facing

charges of exploiting his workers,

whom the Labour Inspectorate

concluded were systematically

underpaid and abused.

On Monday, four businesses

under Singh’s name were put into

liquidation by Inland Revenue.

Coriander’s restaurants have

operated in the wider Christchurch

area for the past 12 years,

with three restaurants currently

operating – one in the central

city, one in Upper Riccarton and

one in Rolleston.

In relation to the worker

exploitation charges, the Inspectorate

is seeking recovery of pay,

a declaration of breach, penalties

and a banning order.

The charges against Singh

are scheduled to be heard in

the Employment Court in

Christchurch on May 19 and 20.

The restaurants are still open.

​The horse trainer, the businessman,

the phone calls and the big bets

• By Louis Day

DETAILS HAVE emerged for

the first time of bugged phone

conversations involving a big

betting businessman and harness

racing driver and trainer who

was arrested for race fixing.

The conversations are part

of the ongoing major police

investigation into the harness

racing industry in Canterbury,

codenamed

Operation

Inca, which involved

undercover

officers

and electronic

surveillance.

Prominent

Nigel

McGrath

trainer and

driver Nigel

McGrath initially

faced a race-fixing charge

in the district court relating to

a race at Addington Raceway in

March, 2018, leading up to the

prestigious New Zealand Derby.

Raceway stipendiary stewards

launched an inquiry after the

race, concerned by the manner

McGrath had driven one of the

two horses he trained in the race

Star Commander. His other

horse, Sheriff won.

At the time, police were

covertly running Operation

Inca, gathering information

and evidence on drug-taking

by people in the industry and

potential race-fixing in order to

land bets.

Two phone calls were intercepted,

one between the

businessman and McGrath and a

second between the businessman

CONTROVERSIAL: Star Commander, the horse at the centre of a police investigation into the

harness racing industry.

PHOTO: HARNESSLINK.COM ​

and an associate in relation to

the Star Commander race.

The identity of the

businessman, who is associated

with the McGrath stable,

remains secret. He is facing

criminal charges in the district

court next month as a result of

Operation Inca and has interim

name suppression.

Police charged McGrath with

race fixing, which was later dismissed

in the district court.

The racing industry’s investigative

body, Racing Integrity

Unit, then charged McGrath

with racing offences which were

heard by the Judicial Control

Authority.

At the hearing, details of the

bugged phone calls emerged.

Former High Court judge

Warwick Gendall, who chaired

the two day JCA hearing did not

suppress the recordings.

The first phone call hears

McGrath tell the businessman:

“Don’t worry about Star Commander”

and then he adds “Star

Commander won’t get in Sheriff’s

way”.

In his written decision, Justice

Gendall says it was “abundantly

clear” the businessman believed

Star Commander was unlikely to

finish in a place.

Betting records showed the

businessman bet $27,252 on

19 bets involving wins, multis,

quaddies, trebles and a double on

Sheriff to win $37,057.

McGrath is asked by the

businessman if Star Commander

would beat Sheriff.

“Nah. Oh if it does it won’t.

If-if it ah. Nah don’t worry, don’t

worry about Star Commander.

Star Commander won’t get in

Sheriff’s way. You don’t want

that.”

The businessman called

McGrath after the race saying

a betting associate had said the

impressive thing was “Nigel

burning other horse.”

McGrath had sat outside the

horse leading the race, which

wilted under pressure, and

Sheriff was able to come through

and win.

McGrath faced two charges at

the JCA hearing.

The first was a serious racing

offence which accused McGrath

of driving in a manner detrimental

to the interests of harness

racing in that he planned and

deliberately drove his horse in a

manner to assist Sheriff.

The second lesser charge of improper

driving, alleged he drove

Star Commander improperly, as

well as planned and deliberately

assisted Sheriff.

He originally pleaded not

guilty to both charges.

However, on the second day

of the hearing he pleaded guilty

to the lesser improper driving

charge, and the Racing Integrity

Unit dropped the more serious

charge.

Justice Gendall suspended

him from driving racing for six

months and ordered him to pay

costs of $11,500.

In a letter obtained by The Star

to his horse owners after the decision,

McGrath said: “As you’ll

be well aware, I haven’t driven at

the races for over a year so this is

a no penalty for me.”

Judge says trainer’s actions ‘complete stupidity’

Pip Hall QC

• From page 9

McGrath’s defence counsel

Pip Hall QC fought for the transcripts

of the conversation with

the businessman to not be heard

at the JCA hearing.

He argued

the agreement

of the material

being given

to the Racing

Integrity Unit

was an “unlawful

bargain

to stifle prosecution.”

Justice Gendall criticised Mr

Hall saying it was “disingenuous

and opportunistic” considering

the defence had agreed to the

transcripts being handed to the

prosecution under the agreement

the criminal proceedings would

be brought to an end.

Mr Hall argued the transcripts

did not demonstrate a deliberate

plan to assist and favour Sheriff,

who he said was a horse a class

above any other in the field which

was reflected in the TAB odds for

the race.

Said Mr Hall: “The two talked

about scenarios as to how the

race might unfold. But the race

never unfolded in the way discussed.

At no stage was the possibility

discussed that Star Commander

would attempt to obtain

the parked position outside the

leading horse and that Sheriff

a phone call with trainer Nigel McGrath which was bugged by

police.

PHOTO: GETTY IMAGES

would gain the one/one position,

which demonstrates there was no

predetermined plan.

“Mr McGrath described the

difference in the ability of Star

Commander and Sheriff as ‘night

and day’ and he was in the in

the best position to know as the

trainer of both.”

Justice Gendall said: “Of course

as is common practice, it is very

usual for a trainer to discuss with

an owner how his horse may be

driven and race tactics and chances

before a race. But this does not

permit a driver trainer to advise or

discuss how his other horse in the

race, which he will be driving, will

likely to be driven or its tactics.

“That is especially where the

(businessman) is told, as here ‘don’t

worry about Star Commander’ and

then ‘Star Commander won’t get in

Sheriff’s way.’

“His actions provided significant

benefits to Sheriff and that it may

not have mattered as it was the very

hot favourite and superior horse

in the race, it does not lessen the offence

of Mr McGrath of improper

driving. Those punters who may

have wagered on Star Commander

for a place or in an exotic bet such

as place six were entitled to see it

properly driven.”

During the hearing, RIU

counsel Brian Dickey said:

“Racing around the first bend

Mr McGrath looks behind him

and to his inside towards Sheriff

on two clear occasions. With

400m of the race remaining

Mr McGrath looks once to his

outside and then three times

to his inside, again all in the

direction of Sheriff.

“Star Commander then moves

outwards on the final stages of

the final bend which creates

a vacant gap ahead of Sheriff.

Sheriff, who was trailing Star

Commander did not need to

make use of that run which was

presented, instead switching to a

run on the inside and going on to

win the race.”

Justice Gendall did not accept

the suggestion made by Mr Hall

that it was permissible to look

behind for safety reasons before

crossing another horse.

“The total number of times he

looked behind was 11 times and

the compelling inference we draw

that this was to see Sheriff.

“His action provided significant

benefits to Sheriff, and that

it may not have mattered as it was

the very hot favourite and superior

horse in the race, it does not

lessen the offence of Mr McGrath

of improper driving.”

He said McGrath’s actions were

“complete stupidity.”

Justice Gendall issued a warning

to other harness racing drivers.

“In this industry, participants

that respect the integrity of harness

racing are to be reminded

that stipendary of the RIU have

evidence of improper driving

should bring charges,” he said.

Several senior harness racing

drivers gave written evidence

for McGrath (before he changed

his plea to guilty) saying they

saw nothing wrong with how he

drove Star Commander.

McGrath also had support from

one of the industry’s top administrators,

Harness Racing New

Zealand chairman Ken Spicer.

Mr Spicer sat with McGrath

during the first day of the

hearing, and even approached

The Star, saying: “When’s your

bloody newspaper going to write

something positive about harness

racing.”

Mr Spicer later told The Star

he had no conflict of interest in

terms of supporting McGrath

and carrying out his role as

HRNZ chairman.

“I supported the man as a

friend but not in my official capacity.

I put my friendship above

the role, I’m not going to turn

against a friend,” he said.

Mr Spicer manages a syndicate

of owners for a horse in

McGrath’s stable. He also bred

and originally owned Sheriff. He

still owns the broodmare.

Said Mr Spicer: “I just think we

have to let the JCA and courts run

their course. If anyone has broken

the law or infringed they will certainly

have to pay the price.”

Mr Hall also has racing

connections with McGrath, part

owning a horse in his stable.

A moving night for

rugby clubrooms

A late night drive has seen the Rolleston Rugby Football Club clubrooms arrive at their new home.

The clubrooms were moved last week from Rolleston Reserve to their new spot at the south end

of Foster Park, next to the rugby fields and new Foster Park changing rooms.

The clubrooms have moved as part of the Rolleston Town Centre Plan, making way for the

building of the new town centre on part of Rolleston Reserve.

Work has begun to ensure the building is compliant with the building code, and to install a concrete

patio and other surrounding landscaping work. This work is expected to take six to eight weeks.

Work is also under way on the final stage of upgrades to this south west area of Foster Park.

McLenaghan Contracting has started construction of a new car park area off Dynes Road, which

will provide 82 new parking spaces. This will bring the total number of car park spaces on the

Foster Park site to 475.

Remote bridge restored

One of the district’s most remote bridges has been replaced after

being washed away in a large flood last year.

The Hawdon River bypass bridge crosses the Waimakariri River on

Mt White Road, 23 kilometres from Arthur’s Pass. The bridge on

the edge of the Arthur’s Pass National Park is most well-known for

being the changeover point between the cycle and kayaking legs of

the Coast to Coast multi-sport race.

A large section of the aging bridge was swept away in a heavy flood

in early November restricting access to Mt White Station and to

Department of Conservation (DOC) tracks in the area.

Work to repair the groynes that help control the river flow and

build a new crossing to replace the old bridge were agreed

after consultation with the DOC, Mt White Station, Environment

Canterbury and the New Zealand Transport Agency.

The work including the new, stronger, box culvert across the river is

due to be completed this week.

Springs Ward arts champion needed

Rolleston Town Centre

roading updates

Major upgrades to Tennyson Street are being sped up.

From Monday 2 March Tennyson Street will be closed to traffic

between Moore Street and Rolleston Drive. This will allow the upgrade

of the road and installation of infrastructure for the Rolleston Town

Centre to be completed around three months faster than scheduled.

As part of the work, a temporary extension is being added to

Markham Way to allow residents to exit Markham Way, Wilbur Close

and Peel Close and to provide access to the carparks for the shops

on the corner of Tennyson Street and Markham Way.

Pedestrian access to Tennyson Street will be maintained throughout

the upgrade, which is expected to be completed by the end of June.

It is one of several roading upgrades under way or upcoming in

Rolleston to support the town’s continuing growth and provide

connections to the southern motorway extension.

This includes the new traffic lights being installed at the intersection

of Lowes Road and Tennyson Street, which is required to meet the

demand from extra traffic entering Rolleston via the State Highway

1 Weedons Road Interchange.

While these upgrades are under way the Council is encouraging

people to plan their journeys through Rolleston. We encourage

people to access State Highway 1 from Rolleston Drive or the

Weedons Road Interchange and to use Rolleston Drive, Masefield

Drive and Brookside Road when accessing the town centre.

Thank you for your patience while we complete these necessary

upgrades to improve Rolleston for the future.

New Zealand more than just a

dot in the ocean

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

govt.nz/facesofselwyn for the full story.

Growing up in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Angelica McCormick never dreamt

of living anywhere else, let alone on a tiny dot in the Pacific Ocean.

Until, 10 years ago, a close friend convinced her to study

English in Australia.

Aged 23 and fresh out of a PE degree, Angelica didn’t speak a word

of English and had never travelled overseas. Nevertheless, in 2009,

she moved to Perth. She intended to stay for a year, until friends set

her up on a date with a young New Zealand bloke, William – who

would turn out to be the love of her life.

A year and a half later they were married and two years later they

decided to pop over to New Zealand for a three-week holiday.

William had grown up in Canterbury and hoped to convince

Angelica to move. She didn’t take much convincing.

“I loved how nice New Zealand was,” she says.

They decided to settle in Lincoln on a lifestyle block with their own

animals including sheep, pigs, chickens and their three dogs.

Today, Angelica works at the Selwyn Aquatic Centre. Swimming is

her passion, so even when her shifts start at 5.45am it doesn’t really

feel like work, she says.

When she has spare time, she likes to play her guitar, cook and to

hunt and fish with William. Selwyn feels safe, with many awesome

things to do and everything she needs is in close proximity, she says.

“I live just 15 minutes from work. You don’t need to go far to find a

beautiful place and you don’t need much money to enjoy yourself –

walking is free, you can go swimming in the ocean or rivers, and you

can go cycling.”

Selwyn teams fail

to make twenty20

country final

• By Jacob Page

NO SELWYN team will be

in the twenty20 Canterbury

Country cricket final next

month,

The Canterbury Country

twenty20 trophy is guaranteed

to have a new home in North

Canterbury instead.

Oxford and Sefton will meet

in the final on March 6 at Main-

Power Oval after both earned

key victories in the final round

of games last Saturday.

Oxford beat Cheviot by 18

runs to keep the top spot while

Sefton beat Southbrook by 12

runs,

Lincoln was the only Selwynbased

team with a chance of

making the final but their 40-

run loss to Weedons saw them

bow out.

Weedons got meaningful contributions

from all of their toporder

with Charlie Robson (35)

opener Todd Inness (31) leading

them to 162 for seven.

Lincoln’s run chase never

gained any momentum and

three for 16 from Jack Porter

ensured a comfortable Weedons

win.

Defending champions Leeston-Southbridge

were able to

avoid finishing last after beating

Darfield by 14 runs.

Rupert Young’s 47 helped

his team to 158 for eight which

proved to be enough as three

for 18 from David Neal helped

restrict Darfield to 144 for nine

in reply.

The final round of the 45-over

competition will be played on

Saturday minus the Canterbury

Country players who will be in

Hamilton challenging for the

Hawke Cup.

Oxford, Cheviot, Leeston-

Southbridge and Southbrook

have qualified for the semi-finals

but the finishing positions could

be affected depending on the

results.

At the other end of the competition,

Lincoln and Weedons are

tied for the wooden spoon on 36

points with whoever finishes last

facing the potential prospect of

relegation from the top grade for

next season.

The final week of games will

see high-flyers Oxford host

Lincoln, who will need an upset

to ensure their premier status for

next season.

Darfield welcome Weedons

which is in the same position as

Lincoln.

Second-placed Cheviot will

play Sefton and Leeston-

Southbridge will travel to

Southbrook eager to get a win

after three straight losses.

• By Jacob Page

CANTERBURY Country’s last

Hawke Cup-winning captain

believes the key to success in

this weekend’s challenge against

Hamilton will come down to

handling pressure.

Andrew Robertson is the only

Canterbury Country player to

win the Hawke Cup three times

during his representative tenure

which spanned 15 years from

2002 to 2017.

He won it in 2004/2005 against

Mid-Canterbury, 2007/2008

against Taranaki and 2014/2015

against Manawatu.

Canterbury Country last challenged

for the symbol of New

Zealand districts cricket two

seasons ago when they came up

short against Counties.

On Friday they head to

Hamilton looking to win it for

the first time since March 1,

2015, when then captain Andrew

Robertson lifted the Hawke Cup

from Manawatu.

“There is a definite lift in

intensity for a challenge,” he

said.

“You work really hard to earn

that right and your season is

pretty much defined by three

days of cricket.”

First innings half centuries

from Sam Chamberlain (74)

and then player/coach Shanan

Stewart (67) helped the

challengers to 317 in their first

innings.

It was then, the seam combination

of current Canterbury

representative Will Williams

and Lincoln’s Jeremy Benton

who took nine for 86 to restrict

Manawatu to just 178 which

helped set-up the first innings

victory.

“We had a great mix of youth

and experience in that team.

Players such as Jack Boyle, Will

HISTORY: The Canterbury

Country Cricket team on

March 1, 2015, after winning

the Hawke Cup from

Manawatu. (Right) – Andrew

Robertson with the Hawke

Cup in 2016.

Williams and Kyle Jamieson

were all part of it that season and

have gone on to bigger and better

things then you had experienced

guys like Shanan Stewart, and

myself.”

Robertson said it was always

a satisfying feeling to lift the

Hawke Cup even if his last time

with it ended after the biggest

upset in the competition’s 110-

year history.

After a successful defence

against North Otago, they lost it

to Buller after Robertson needed

17 off the final over to keep the

cup.

While he hit the first two balls

for a six and four, he was unable

to produce another maximum

off the last ball.

“That one still hurts, I think

about it most days to tell you the

truth but Buller played well and

hung on.”

Robertson said the key was

to realise a lot can happen in

three days of cricket and swings

in momentum were to be expected.

“I just wish the guys all the

best, they’ve had a great season

and hopefully they can bring it

home.”

The match begins on Friday.

Rolleston roading projects update

Tennyson Street – temporary closure

Tennyson Street closed

from next week

From Monday 2 March Tennyson

Street will be closed to traffic (in both

directions) from Moore Street to the

Police station, and will remain closed

until late June. This change to the

original timetable means that we will

be able to complete the infrastructure

works for the Rolleston Town Centre

much sooner than initially scheduled.

· A detour will be in place using

Byron Street, Brookside Road and

Rolleston Drive

· The 820 bus stops will be moved to a

temporary location on Rolleston Drive

(see map).

· Tennyson Street remains open

to pedestrians.

The project also includes temporarily

extending Markham Way through to

Norman Kirk Drive. This will allow for

access to businesses and residences on

Tennyson Street.

Thanks for your patience while we carry

Plan #

out these major works in preparation

for the new Rolleston Town Diagram Centre.

Ellesmere second in Browning Shield

• By Jacob Page

ELLESMERE HAS finished

runners-up to Mid-Canterbury

at the Browning Shield

tournament at Wilding Park

over the weekend.

Mid-Canterbury won the

symbol of Canterbury Country

senior tennis supremacy for the

sixth consecutive year, going

unbeaten against all competition

which also included Malvern

and North Canterbury.

Ellesmere last won the Browning

Shield in the 2012/2013 season

and pushed Mid-Canterbury

all the way in the opening

fixture on Saturday before losing

13 matches to 11.

Ellesmere went on to beat Malvern

13-5 and North Canterbury

13-11.

Ellesmere held their own

against the defending champions

in the men’s and women’s singles

as well as the men’s and women’s

doubles but they lost five of six

mixed doubles matches which

effectively cost them the tie and

the Browning Shield.

Ellesmere won five of six men’s

singles against Malvern to set-up

their victory.

They also won all three

women’s doubles encounters.

They then won four of the six

mixed doubles to edge a spirited

North Canterbury challenge in

their final encounter.

Ellesmere team captain Steven

Baird said it was disappointing

to lose after coming so close but

he believed second was a fair

outcome.

POISE: Jonathon Nowley plays a

backhand against Mid-Canterbury.

“To win the Browning Shield,

it has to be a team effort, you

can’t spend time looking at one

result and thinking about what

might have been.”

He said Brendon Jones

produced some strong

performances on day one, while

Julian Main stepped up on day

two.

Dave Withell won all three of

his matches against North Canterbury

to help secure second.

Baird said Letitia Jackson

fought hard at the top of the

women’s seedings all weekend.

Regular club competition

returns on Saturday.

TOUCH: Julian Main goes for a lob

shot.

STRETCH: Mel Williams tries

to get the ball on her strings.

SERVE: Nicole Fitchett starts

the next point.

CONTROL: Brendon Jones concentrates on

the line of the ball.

CONCENTRATION: Heidi

Blackburn looks to produce a

winner.

Tackle those gnarly tracks in a Pajero Sport

SUCH IS the demand for sport

utility vehicles, motor vehicle

manufacturers have recognised

the need for those which have

genuine off-road capability.

Sure, there are many SUVs

which are capable off-the-seal,

but there are some that are better

than most, those that are based

on ute platforms, ie: ladder

chassis and live rear axle.

The benefit of that type of

construction is not just high

ground clearance, but they also

have the ability to put power to

ground through low ratio transfer

cases and lengthy rear axle

articulation.

There are several ute-based

SUVs in the Kiwi market, and

in terms of sales, Ford’s Everest,

Toyota’s Fortuner, Holden’s

Trailblazer and Mitsubishi’s

Pajero Sport are the shakers and

movers.

This evaluation focuses on

the latter, and the Triton-based

seven-seat SUV has just had a bit

a revamp, there are a host of new

features and an interior rejig so

that comfort levels are enhanced.

In terms of specifics, the

exterior has had some cosmetic

changes up front, they provide a

solid, more powerful look. Inside

there are new display graphics,

greater storage facility, and soft

touch padding has been added to

the extremities.

One of the most notable new

features is the powered tailgate

which can be operated by waving

a foot under each side of the rear

bumper – this feature was great

for loading the hefty cricket gear

bag I use for coaching my year 7

Sydenham team.

Interestingly, the Pajero Sport

is available now in only one

specification, and that is high

grade VRX. It is listed now at just

$58,990, which makes it a most

appealing purchase; not only do

you get a lot of vehicle for that

price, it is finished with all the

goodies that characterise highgrade

Mitsubishi product.

It is swimming in features way

too numerous to mention, but

to list just a few, there are heated

seats (full leather and electrically

adjustable), paddle shifters and

a clever new electronic remote

control device which will link to

an owner’s cellphone. It enables

automatic opening of the tailgate

when approaching the vehicle.

Mechanically, little has changed

with the Pajero Sport other than

a few electronic tweaks to the

driveline and four-wheel-drive

system. The Super-Select 4WD-II

system has long proven itself in

Triton, and I consider it one of

MITSUBISHI PAJERO SPORT: Serious four-wheel-drive SUV.

the best in this type of vehicle.

Under the bonnet sits a 2.4-litre,

four-cylinder, turbocharged diesel

engine rated by Mitsubishi at

135kW and 437Nm. It is a real

powerhouse and drives through

the sophistication of an eightspeed

automatic gearbox. The

engine/gearbox combination is

rather special, especially so with

the number of ratios, there is

almost seamless gearing offering

the best structures for both

off-road challenges and smooth

momentum for the everyday

commute.

Of course, the Pajero Sport also

gets a seriously low ratio transfer

system for when those fourwheel-drive

tracks beckon.

The test car was showing only

333km when I picked it up from

the dealership; that being the

case, I was reluctant to take it

off-road for fear of damage and/

or getting it too dirty. However,

as good fortune had it, I offered

to take my son to a rural property

in Lansdowne Valley to pick up

some PlayStation games he had

purchased off Trade Me.

The house was located up

a private driveway which

meandered for several kilometers

on a steep hill. The accessway was

mostly sealed bar for some deep

ruts and broken surfaces. The

Pajero Sport easily conquered the

challenge in two wheel-drive, but

what was most impressive was the

way the suspension kept wheel

contact to ground, as well as

offering high interior comfort.

Steering feel was constantly

communicative, and turn in

direct through huge Toyo tyres

(265/60 x 18in). On the steep

descent it was also good to know

that the brakes were up to task.

That journey was a good test for

the Pajero Sport, and even though

the engine was still quite tight,

it made easy work of the steep

incline.

is comfortable with a 6.5sec

highway overtake (80km/h to

120km/h).

On the subject of figures, the

Pajero Sport is also listed with a

3100kg tow rating and 218mm

ground clearance.

At highway speed it cruises

comfortably with little sound

intrusion, there is just a subdued

diesel throb under load, but

that is no louder than any of its

competition.

There’s been a lot of fresh

product landing from Mitsubishi

in recent months, Triton, ASX

and Outlander have all had a

refresh, along with Pajero Sport.

There’s also genuine enthusiasm

at the local dealership, and with

a comprehensive and dynamic

product range on the showroom

floor, it’s going to be a heady time

for those under the Mitsubishi

umbrella in this country.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

SELWYN TIMES

Restoring an old caravan

When Steve decided to restore an old

1966 Freeway caravan, he imagined

it would take three months. It took

eighteen!

“The caravan looked alright. It had a

bulge on the right side where the bench

had fallen down after the floor collapsed

but I didn’t realise the extent of rot it

had. When the wall linings were off and

cabinetry out, you could put your foot

through the walls,” explains Steve.

To get the caravan into his garage,

he deflated the tyres then rigged up a

frame to support the roof. The flooring

was replaced with 18mm marine ply

and internal wooden walls with treated

timber. The original structure was

untreated, explaining the rot.

Six months into the project, an

additional steel frame was fitted around

the chassis for strengthening along with

new tail and park lights, axle and springs

to bring the caravan to warrant of fitness

standard.

Aluminium bubble wrap was used for

insulation, which Steve says is extremely

warm. The caravan’s lights and fridge

were rewired to 12 volt, allowing the

house batteries to run for three days

before needing to be re-charged, and

a 150 watt solar panel was fitted to the

roof.

Internally, the caravan was lined with

plywood. Steve then constructed the

internal joinery, including a curved

wall wardrobe, new kitchen bench unit,

double bed base to accommodate a

comfortable mattress, seat bases and

a table. Badges, coins and bank notes

collected on Steve and Lyn’s travels, were

wedged between a resin cover and the

Rimu table top.

Friends and family added their touch,

helping create some part of the caravan

or gifting accessories for its interior. New

Aluminium bubble

wrap insulation.

and recycled materials

were used, like the

bench top from a friend’s

caravan and Rimu from

a neighbour’s ceiling. The

tail lights were custom

built and represent a 1961

Impala; the car which will

eventually tow the caravan.

“Only the chassis rails

and one piece of wood by

the door are original,” says

Steve.

Steve and Lyn often talked about

owning a retro caravan to take on

holidays. The 1966 Freeway cost $3,000

originally, and around $18,000 to

renovate.

Steve says he is unlikely to renovate

another and suggests anyone considering

buying a caravan to restore, check

underneath for rust in the chassis and rot

in the wooden floor.

“Rot in the floor has probably come

from somewhere else so there’s likely to

be rot all the way down,” advises Steve.

From dented and battered, Steve has

completely transformed the caravan

into a stunning semi-retro, comfortable

holiday home on wheels. However, he

says it is like an old car: there is always

something that could be done.

The 1966 Freeway Caravan – not to be

confused with Franklin Freeway caravans

manufactured in Australia –was built

in Dunedin with only a limited number

produced. Steve’s research has found

little on the New Zealand made caravan

though he would like to know more.

Gardening

Plan around available light

ONE OF the biggest problems

you are going to encounter when

you are landscaping small spaces

is the amount of light available

and how well the ground drains.

In larger spaces this is much

less of a problem because you can

always vary the design according

to the conditions, moving a particular

idea into another section if

required.

This is one luxury you don’t

have in smaller gardens. Landscaping

small spaces doesn’t have

to be about growing plants.

Where there is little natural

light you could still landscape

– but without using any plants

or just a few of those plants that

thrive in poor light. Just fill the

area to be landscaped with gravel,

or lay paving and then place a

bench in a strategic position and

dot around some garden sculptures

– perhaps a water feature.

You could, of course plant

many varieties of shade-loving

plants. If you are landscaping

small spaces you should let your

eye move skywards.

Install some frames and train

some climbing plants over them –

perhaps variegated ivy or virginia

creeper, both of which are lovers

of poor lighting conditions.

Try hydrangea and, perhaps,

a deciduous shrub such as one

of the varieties of tree holly or, if

BULKY: Use hydrangeas to cover a small corner, it will grow

well even without much light.

you really have green fingers, try

growing an azalea or two – they

are a bit tricky to grow but some

people seem to have the knack.

For ground cover try coleus, a

plant that comes with some beautiful

variegated leaves, and other

ground covering plants such as

the various erica species.

Landscaping small spaces can

be particularly effective if you

look around you and carefully

take stock of the whole space at

your disposal. Part of the key is to

look up.

You are bound to have a perimeter

fence or wall around your

property and these can be ideal to

support climbing plants against

– honeysuckle, passion fruit and

climbing roses – to name just a

few.

There are literally hundreds of

varieties of climbing plants you

could use. You could even plant

fruit trees.

Even the smallest patio space

has sufficient room to grow a

couple of espalier apple trees

or pear trees which are trained

horizontally along a wall rather

than allowed to grow into their

natural state.

Once your actual landscaping

has been implemented you could

finish off with some night-time

lamps.

Landscaping small spaces really

can be quite fun if done properly

with plenty of research up front.

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/backyard-biodiversity-bugs-in-my-lincoln-section

Ecosystem benefits

from useful wasp

WHEN WE mention wasps,

most people think of the black

and yellow stinging variety of

vespula wasps, including

the nasty german wasp.

However, other

families of

wasps are parasitic

on pest species,

a useful

ecosystem

service.

One example is

Glabridorsum stokesii,

a parasitoid deliberately

introduced into New Zealand

in 1967-1969 for the biological

control of the oriental fruit

moth and the light brown apple

moth.

Two non-target pests, the

brownheaded and greenheaded

leafrollers are also parasitised by

the wasp. Glabridorsum stokesii

is native of Australia, it is 10mm

long with a black and white

body and mainly orange legs.

THe parasitoid is often

confused with the parasite

of the lemon tree borer but

the latter has incomplete

white rings around the

eyes, while Glabridorsum

has continuous white rings

around the eyes.

Females

parasitoids

usually

oviposit into moth

pupae, but sometimes

in pre-pupa or the last stage

of larvae. They undergo three

generations per year and can

parasitise up to 73 per cent of

the oriental moth population.

THese parasitoids are

hosts themselves to other

parasites, behaviour known as

hyperparasitism.

LIVE THE LIFE YOU LOVE

At the Boulevard Boutique Lifestyle Village

PRIVATELY OWNED AND OPERATED

A GEM IN ROLLESTON

The Boulevard stands out when you are making your lifestyle choice with architecturally designed

two and three-bedroom villas, all with a point of difference. Entry from 55 years and consideration is

given so you can have your pet.

Karen believes lifestyle villages have

much to offer; she is happy to discuss

how retirement village living works and

give advice on the choices available,

not just at the Boulevard.

Get Peace of Mind at the Boulevard

Boutique Lifestyle Village

All retirement villages offer a variety

of different benefits but at the end of

the day, they are similar concerning

their Occupation Right Agreement.

Some may focus on one point such as

capital gain but have higher non-fixed

weekly fees. Other villages require the

occupier to sell their villa, pay the real

estate fees and take on the stress that

goes with selling real estate. Some

occupiers have to accept capital loss

if the market changes, while others

have to pay village renovation costs,

termination fees, and legal costs, and

may also be charged for advertising

and introducing new residents.

“At the Boulevard, everything is

transparent and easy to follow,” says

Karen. “We do not offer capital gain

but our deferred management fee

covers all those extras things, some of

which are listed above. It is all about

peace of mind at the end of the day

and what suits you personally and

financially.”

“What is important is that you choose

the village most suited to your needs.”

Architectural styling with

futureproofed residential care

Karen says the Boulevard attracts

people who love the architectural style

of the village and the individuality of

the villas.

“Our residents also experience peace

of mind that their weekly fees will not

go up and have full transparency as to

what comes off the Occupation Right

Agreement when it’s time to move on.”

The care facility, yet to be built, is also

appealing. At the Boulevard, residents

can move easily from their villa to an

apartment, care suite or hospital-level

care and not leave the village.

NEXT STAGE OF FURTHER

TWO BEDROOM VILLAS

COMMENCING THIS MONTH

Secure your villa now and personalise with your

own colour choices for soft furnishings and

joinery.

The next stage of two-bedroom villas are priced

from $475,000 and include television, fridge,

combination microwave, wall oven, dish drawer,

ceramic hobs, electric fire, heat pump, washing

machine and dryer, plus all soft furnishings.

Check out our video presentation of a two and three-bedroom villa on our website: boulevardvillage.co.nz

your options

Lincoln Community Toy Library

Lincoln Community Toy Library promotes and encourages families to save money and the

environment by not buying toys that end up in landfill after children get bored with them.

This way children get new toys to play with and the toys are rotated so that they don’t end

up in landfill.

Four Seasons Realty 2017 Ltd is proud to support Lincoln Community Toy Library with a

donation through the Harcourts Foundation, which will support children and families in the

community.

Buying a property at auction

If you’re keen on a property that’s going to auction, preparation

is everything. A successful bid means you are immediately

committed to buy the property; you cannot seek legal advice,

arrange finance or even get the property valued or inspected

when the auction is over.

That means you need to do all your

due diligence in advance of auction day.

Before the auction (usually after you’ve

viewed the property), the real estate agent

working for the seller should provide you

with a copy of the terms and Contract of

Sale, which sets out what chattels will be

included with the property. This document

will also tell you the amount of the deposit

to be paid by the successful bidder, and

when the balance of the payment must

be made. These documents should be

checked by your lawyer.

You should consider having the property

checked (preferably by a qualified

inspector who has professional indemnity

insurance and carries out their work

in accordance with the New Zealand

Property Inspection Standards and

obtain an up-to-date Land Information

Memorandum (LIM) from the local

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

of the property, especially as you are likely

to require one if you need a loan. Some

websites provide free estimated market

values that may be useful.

There’s a lot to

take in at an auction

and it’s easy to

feel overwhelmed.

If you can, go

along to one as

an observer to see

how the process

works before you

actually want to

buy. Remember

that the auctioneer

is working for the

seller and they want

to get the highest

price possible for

the property.

At an auction,

the auctioneer will read the terms and

conditions of the sale aloud and announce

if a reserve price has been set. They must

also state whether the seller has reserved

the right to bid during the auction. This

is called ‘vendor bidding’ and it is only

allowed under strict circumstances, such

as when the property being auctioned has

a reserve price; when the reserve price has

not yet been met; and the auctioneer has

made it clear that the bid being made is a

vendor bid. They must do this by saying,

‘this is a vendor bid’ rather than using any

jargon.

Auctioneers sometimes use vendor

bids as a way to start off the bidding, or

to move the bidding towards the reserve

price. Vendor bids can be made by the

auctioneer, or another person working on

behalf of the seller, such as a real estate

agent. An auctioneer can also use a preauction

offer to start the bidding.

The auction continues until there is only

one bidder left. At that stage, if the reserve

price is reached or beaten, the highest

bidder will be the successful buyer. If the

reserve price isn’t reached, the seller can

tell the auctioneer to stop the auction

without selling the property.

If the auction is stopped without a

sale, the highest bidder may have the

opportunity to negotiate with the seller

(via their agent) after the auction. If this

happens, the terms and conditions of

the auction no longer apply and you can

negotiate new ones.

property, check out www.settled.govt.nz.

Building on a

new bare land

lifestyle block

Many people dream of owning a lifestyle block

where they can live the rural lifestyle and have more

space with a larger home and a few animals.

Chris Flanagan, owner of Selwyn real estate firm

Matson and Allan, says it is a matter of going in with

your eyes open.

“When looking to buy a bare land lifestyle block

you need to consider the services it has available,”

advises Chris.

Chris lists the availability of water and electricity,

putting in a driveway, siting of a new home,

covenants on the property, and GST status as all

questions to address.

“The majority of buyers will need to drill their own

well,” says Chris.

Each situation differs with the cost of drilling a

well. This is influenced by the depth needed to access

a reliable water supply.

Next, buyers should consider where the electricity

is in relation to the block and where the home will be

built. Power may need to be brought down the road

though usually, it will simply involve bringing power

from the road onto the property.

Accessibility and cost of sourcing services may

determine where a new home will be sited. Building

close to the road can minimise costs but could

ultimately devalue the property. To avoid this, it

is important that service connection costs are

factored into the budget.

Building platform regulations are generally

not an issue in Selwyn though nearer the

Port Hills or in flood prone areas, there may

be a minimum building height with a more

engineered foundation required, adding to

the build cost.

It is very important to check the GST

status when purchasing a bare land

lifestyle property. Generally, if the vendor

is registered for GST then GST will be

payable on top of the purchase price. It

would be advisable to seek professional

advice from an accountant with regard

to any possible GST payment.

When buying a bare land lifestyle block, also check

if there are any covenants against the title. Covenants

are put in place to protect the purchasers’ investment

and ensure the subdivision is of a high standard. A

lot of covenants will not allow relocatable homes

and require that all new homes are constructed from

new materials. Chris says they are also seeing new

covenants requiring that shelter belts are trimmed

annually and kept to a certain height. Factory

farming is always not allowed. Chris says he is also

seeing more covenants introduced that are requiring

paddocks be topped every year to reduce the risk of

fire.

If you are looking to purchase a lifestyle property,

make sure you ask the real estate agent selling the

block about the covenants, services available and the

GST status. Chris and his team at Matson and Allan

are more than happy to advise you in this process.

Understanding your needs

For a short time only, people will be

able to view a very special showhome in

Stonebrook.

Designed and built by Full Circle

Homes’ director John Krausz, this four

bedroom 191sqm home has many

desirable features, most standard to a

Full Circle Homes’ build.

Constructed for John and his wife

who recently moved to Stonebrook

to be closer to their daughter and

grandchildren, the showhome is

well designed giving it broad appeal,

especially for those with families or who

are looking to downsize.

With almost 40 years’ experience

in new residential homes, John

understands building and what people

want, taking the time to listen so clients

will love their new home.

Ideas abound in this showhome.

In the open plan living area, a Schist

feature wall hides the front door while

extra wide stacker doors access a large

deck. Repurposed bedrooms have

become a craft room and an office with

its own external entrance.

Merging beautifully with the living

area, the kitchen reflects quality with

innovative aspects like the black tower

Fawcett and instant hot water dispenser.

Many features, often deemed extras, are

standard for Full Circle Homes, such as

the Insinkerator and option of a gas or

induction hob.

“The Lignite”

Separated from the other bedrooms,

the master has its own private deck

and spa pool for the perfect parents’

hideaway. Drawers, shelving and

hangers show how a walk-in robe might

be fitted-out while the ensuite replicates

the firm’s standard specifications of

900mm vanity, corner shower, toilet,

glass mirrored cabinet and heated towel

rail.

A living example of Full Circle

Homes’ standard package these go

beyond what might be expected to

include extras like: the fully insulated

garage and superior Colorsteel door

191 m2

(more or less)

(inside and out for a solid sharp and

tidy finish); marine carpeted garage

floor; attic storage trusses; electronic/

remote controlled Daikin ducted

heating system, WiFi, lighting and

two security cameras; a security front

door bell; vinyl planking and quality

carpet. There are the little things too.

The wardrobes and hall linen cupboard

have fitted wooden shelving, the main

bathroom a freestanding bath and

1200mm vanity.

The home’s exterior cladding is plaster

finish, augmented with schist features

and black aluminium joinery. Its

laminated timber J-Framing (standard

to Full Circle Homes) ensures straighter

stronger framing offering more integrity

in an earthquake.

John works with clients to identify

the most suitable design and choice

of features and fittings as well as

John Krausz

their placement. He has considerable

experience working with first home

buyers, understanding the importance

of ensuring their standard building

package is comprehensive so fencing,

driveway, patios, lawns and landscaping

are all included.

Full Circle Homes’ Rolleston

showhome at 12 Lignite Drive in

Stonebrook, is open Sundays from

1pm until 4pm or during the week by

appointment.

To contact John, phone 390 4231

or 022 340 9122, or email: john@
