Soaking up the sun and sounds

STYLISH: Ian Reid of Rolleston danced the day away in his colourful suit at Selwyn Sounds.

• By Matt Slaughter

IAN REID says he had “a riot

of a time” at Selwyn Sounds on

Saturday.

The 54-year-old from

Rolleston danced the day away

in a loud two-piece suit he

bought online, which resembled

a retro television test-pattern

straight out of the 1980s.

He was one of about 10,000

THE MESSAGE is just not

That is the frustrated call from

Sergeant Dean

Harker said

Kingsdowne

Drive in West

Melton has been

targeted twice Dean Harker

and both times

cars have been left unlocked.

“It is pretty disappointing.

People are still leaving their cars

unlocked and their valuables

inside.” he said

“People are leaving laptops and

handbags in plain sight. There are

things like work-related documents

being taken as well.”

Senior Sergeant Harker said there

were about five car break-ins along

the street during the second spate.

Vehicles being parked up

from the editor’s desk

WHAT A difference a week can make.

Recently people living in the Lincoln

subdivision of Flemington were told a

supermarket would be going in over their

back fence.

Many were understandably not happy.

They say they bought their new homes on the basis Flemington

would only be residential.

The Selwyn Times got involved and publicised residents’

concerns. The district council says it will publicly notify

the resource consent application meaning people can make

submissions for or against the development (see page 3).

Now whether Flemington was always going to be purely

residential is likely to be a moot point. We are still awaiting a

response from the company that developed the subdivision.

Also today we have coverage of another great Selwyn Sounds.

Roll on the 2021 edition.

Residents will get to have a say

on planned Lincoln supermarket

• By Devon Bolger

RESIDENTS believe they forced

the district council’s hand in

its decision to allow the public

to have their say on a proposed

Countdown for Lincoln.

The district council has

decided to publicly notify the

resource consent application

meaning people can make

submissions for or against the

development.

Robyn Twemlow

represents a group

of Flemington

residents against

the location of the

supermarket.

Jesse

Burgess

“I am going to

assume we did

have influence

over that decision

as the developer did not ask for

public notification. I think the

council would not have made the

decision if we hadn’t spoken up,”

she said.

A district council spokesman

said the decision was made

based on the legal requirement

to assess if any adverse effects on

the environment will be less than

minor.

“The applicant indicated that

FEEDBACK: The public will be able to have their say on the

Countdown supermarket planned for this site on Birchs Rd in

Lincoln.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

they did not think the application

needed to be notified and it was

the council’s assessment based

on the legal requirements in the

Resource Management Act that

there was a need to notify the

application,” he said.

Last week the applicant,

Lincoln Developments Ltd asked

for the application to be briefly

put on hold.

Said district council planning

manager Jesse Burgess: “The

applicant asked to place the

application on hold while it

considered the decision to

publicly notify the proposal.

“They have requested to

proceed with public notification

of the application which will

begin from today and go for 20

days,” he said.

Ms Twemlow said: “It’s great it

has been publicly notified because

it is in the public’s best interest

to be able to have their say. Yes,

it has an immediate effect on

Flemington residents but even

more the township as a whole.”

A Countdown spokeswoman

said they would not comment

on the situation as the consent is

currently under consideration.

A public meeting has been

planned at the Lincoln Baptist

Church on March 24 at 7.30pm

with district council town

planners, councillors and

residents.

Ms Twemlow said the planners

will explain the proposal itself

and the Resource Management

Act.

Springs Ward councillor Grant

Miller said he understands the

residents’ concerns but also

understands why the proposed

site was chosen.

“Some of the residents have

brought houses thinking they

would only have residential

neighbours so that’s quite a change

for them particularly around

traffic and parking,” he said.

“I can also see why that site has

been chosen. It’s a main arterial

site and there is a large portion

of housing that will support their

business being there.”

Cr Miller said he is confident

Countdown will work on

mitigating the residents’ concerns.

Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall

said he does not agree with the

supermarket going in at the

proposed location.

Family back on property; grateful for support

• By Devon Bolger

THE JONES family is back living

on their Burnham property where

their house burnt down.

They have been living in a

temporary structure for two

weeks and have plans to build a

new house on the site.

Jo Jones says they are still working

out the insurance details but it

should take about a year.

Their family home burnt down,

caused by an electrical fault in the

laundry, about 5.30pm on Boxing

Day.

“We have only been back here

about two weeks now but is

amazing to be back now that the

old house has been demolished.

“Words to me just don’t seem

enough for everything that everyone

has done for us. We just want

to say thank you for taking away

the hard stuff so we could focus

on the day-to-day things,” Mrs

Jones said.

More than $7200 was raised for

the family on a Givealittle page

set up by the Leeston Volunteer

Fire Brigade where Mr Jones is a

firefighter.

The funds were put towards

constructing and maintaining

their temporary home.

Mrs Jones said they could not

have got through losing their

home if it was not for the support

of those around them.

They were outside with their

four children Jordan, 6, Lauren,

5, Arleia, 4, and Izaiah, 2, at the

time.

Almost as soon as the fire broke

out, people came to help, Mrs

Jones said.

“All of a sudden I looked

around and there were people

coming in off the road and asking

if we needed any help and if we

were okay.

“The neighbours all started

coming and rescuing the kids.

They took all the kids except for

the youngest who wanted to stay

with me.’’

Chief fire officer Lloyd Clausen

stepped up to ensure the family

was okay for the night, Mrs Jones

said.

“That is why we want to say

thank you because the community

took over the practical thinking

of everyday life that we couldn’t

think about.”

An electrical fault in the laundry

was found to have sparked

the fire.

The family, along with Mrs

Jones mother, was playing

together outside when the blaze

broke out.

“I saw smoke and thought there

must be a fire in the hallway. I ran

inside and saw these flames leaping

from the laundry door. I felt

like they were about as tall as me,”

she said.

Mr Jones grabbed a fire extinguisher

and ran inside before

quickly exiting with a handful of

photo albums.

He ran back into the house but

Mrs Jones did not know that.

“I couldn’t see Jessie anywhere.

I honestly thought he was going

to die in there. Lloyd Clausen arrived

and asked if I was all right,

I said ‘yes’ and I remember not

wanting to say that I wasn’t sure if

Jessie was dead or alive.”

In spite of everything, things

are relatively back to normal for

the family now, Mrs Jones said.

Huge crowd turns out for music festival

• From page 1

Said Mr Reid: “Icehouse was

the main act I came to see. Then

10cc, of course, was awesome

and I’m actually friends with

the band manager Emma from

Zed, so it was great to see the

boys together again. I’ve seen

them a few times, but yeah, they

smashed it out really big time.”

Mr Reid also wore his distinctive

suit to the recent Electric

Avenue Festival, and on New

Year’s Eve.

“I like to bring the party to the

party.

“We do a lot of music, we like

dancing and it’s good to look like

you’re having fun,” he said.

Mr Reid and his friends kept

partying at a nearby house after

the event until the early hours of

Sunday morning.

Said event director David

Parlane: “I think the overall event

this year was our best yet with

our best line-up.

“Everybody had a great day

and thoroughly enjoyed what

was on offer.”

Mr Parlane said the mix of

international and New Zealand

acts were on top of their game.

Highlights of the day included

Midge Ure’s powerful performance,

Zed’s set, which was full of

their Kiwi singalongs, the brilliant

musicianship showcased by 10cc,

and Icehouse’s both energetic and

heartfelt set to finish the day.

The music was loud, the drinks

were cold and a range of food

trucks fuelled the crowd.

Early bird tickets are already

on sale for Selwyn Sounds

international acts have already

been booked. He said it was too

early to name these but people

New diesel engine cleaning options available

The Ryco range of diesel particulate filters

is built to exacting quality standards to

meet or exceed genuine alternative DPFs.

839 Jones Road, Izone side of Rolleston.

When gunk builds up in a diesel injection engine

it is less efficient, uses more fuel and has the

potential to cause costly engine repairs.

Rolleston Diesel & Petrols have a solution to this

problem with two recently introduced new services to

help keep your diesel engine running smoothly.

Their latest cleaning machine can be connected

to your vehicle to clean its fuel injection system, air

intake system, turbo unit, EGR system and/or diesel

particulate filter (DPF) unit.

These are all designed for fuel

efficiency so if any part is

malfunctioning it can cause

problems. For example,

your engine might be losing

power, a warning light might be

showing on your dashboard,

fuel usage may be heavier, or

the vehicle may be emitting

white or black smoke. This new

machine will clean the relevant

part.

“We’ve seen some fantastic

results when using this

machine,” says Simon, owner

of Rolleston Diesel & Petrols.

Ryco fuel water separator.

“With DPF units, if you cannot get the soot back to a

reasonable level then the unit will need to be replaced

at a huge cost so keeping it clean can result in less

expense and hassle.”

Maintaining cleaner fuel output is also environmentally

friendly and especially beneficial for a business

wanting to reduce its carbon footprint. A slightly

blocked or sooty DPF can also have a huge effect on

the fuel bill.

Complementing their new cleaning machine,

Rolleston Diesel & Petrols now supply crankcase

ventilation filtration systems –Ryco Catch Cans, a

vehicle fuel system separator. Designed and tested

by an Australian automotive team, these Ryco

Crankcase Filter Assembly Catch Cans with fuel water

separators, look like factory units and will generally fit

with your vehicle manufacturers’ warranty.

These two new services enable Rolleston Diesel

& Petrols to increase your vehicle’s performance:

protecting its fuel system by removing a higher

percentage of dirt for easier flow of air, oil and fuel

through the system and extending the life of filters.

Simon advises they have recently fitted these Catch

Cans to vehicles with impressive results.

Rolleston Diesel & Petrols is an extremely well-equipped

Treatment plant’s solar dryer

upgrade gets start date

• By Devon Bolger

WORK ON the $6.9 million

upgrade for the Pines

Wastewater Treatment Plant in

Burnham will start in late May

or early June.

Monadelphous Engineering

NZ Pty Ltd has been chosen to

design and build the extension to

the existing solar

dryer facility.

District council

water services

asset manager

Murray England

Murray

said the design

phase of the

project is well

England

under way.

“Work on the upgrade is expected

to start in late May or early

June and the facility is expected to

be completed and online by April

2021,” he said.

Half of the project has been

brought forward five years ahead

of schedule.

The extension is needed

to meet existing and future

demand for the Eastern Selwyn

Sewerage Scheme, which serves

Prebbleton, Lincoln, Springston,

Rolleston and West Melton.

The extension will double the

capacity of this part of the treatment

plant process.

Half of the project has been

brought forward five years ahead

of schedule.

The project was scheduled in

the Long-Term Plan to be built

in two phases with the first solar

drying hall expansion scheduled

for 2018/19 and the second hall

in 2026/27.

The district council made the

decision to tender both stages as

one tender, bringing forward the

second stage.

Said a district council spokesman:

“This enabled considerable

cost savings to be made due to

the economy of scale gained

from large-scale projects, and

places Selwyn in an ideal position

to accommodate ongoing,

rapid residential and industrial

growth in the district.”

A budget of $6.9 million was

approved for the project, with a

majority of funding from development

contributions.

When the solar drying hall

was originally built in 2013 it

was the first hall of its kind in

PROGRESS: The

Pines Wastewater

Treatment Plant

will be upgraded

New Zealand.

It provides an innovative solution

to drying sludge, which is

created as a by-product of the

wastewater treatment process,

using the natural climate.

The solar dryer sees around 70

per cent of the water content of

the sludge removed on site.

The new facility is also expected

to provide further improvements

to the innovative design

that could lead to cost savings.

The treatment plant treats

wastewater from the Eastern

Selwyn Sewerage Scheme.

Seismic

strengthening

committee

formed

• By Devon Bolger

A COMMITTEE has been formed

to consider options for seismic

strengthening of the Leeston

Library and Medical Centre.

The group is made up of district

councillors and staff.

So far two meetings have been

held and they are planning on

making a presentation to various

Leeston community committees.

The presentation would include

the needs assessment findings for a

community centre that has recently

been completed to a draft stage.

An update on issues related to

library/medical centre and possible

options moving forward.

District council staff have also

met with the general practitioner

of the medical centre to explain

the options being considered for a

new centre.

An architect is being engaged to

prepare a bulk and location plan

for two options.

The committee will report back

to the district council by April 28

on possible options of combined

project delivery for the library/

community centre and health

services.

Rolleston roading projects update

Tennyson Street – temporary closure

March 2020

Tennyson Street closed

Tennyson Street is closed to traffic (in both directions)

from 43 Tennyson Street to the Police station 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 is in place using Byron Street, Brookside

Road and Rolleston Drive.

· The 820 bus stops has been 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 out these major

works in preparation for the new Rolleston Town Centre.

We acknowledge this work will cause disruption, but

speeding up the programme means the restricted

access will be in place for a much shorter time.

Court battle to keep name

secret over drugs charges

A HIGH-PROFILE Canterbury

harness racing person who has

admitted to drugs charges is now

fighting to have their name kept

secret.

The person, who cannot yet

be identified for legal reasons,

has pleaded guilty in the district

court to possession and supply

of the illegal party drug MDMA

(ecstasy).

It comes as several other

Canterbury-based harness racing

people continue to face district

court proceedings over possessing

and supplying ecstasy, a

Class B drug.

They were

caught up

in the ongoing

police

undercover

Matt

Anderson

and electronic

surveillance

operation Inca

into drug use

and alleged race fixing in the

harness racing industry.

One, trainer/driver Matt

Anderson, pleaded guilty to

possession and supply. He was

discharged without conviction

SECRECY: A high profile figure within the harness racing

community is fighting for name suppression after admitting drugs

charges.

and was refused final name

suppression.

Anderson now will face a hearing

over the drug matter from

racing industry statutory body

the Judicial Control Authority.

He could lose his training and

driving licence and face a substantial

fine.

The latest individual to plead

guilty to the drugs has a district

court hearing in early April

where their lawyer will argue for a

discharge without conviction and

permanent name suppression.

Harness Racing New Zealand

chief executive Peter Jensen said

recreational drug use was an issue

which it took seriously.

“Our sport is not immune to

what is a societal issue present

in all professions and trades.

As a condition of their licence,

licensed participants such as

trainers, drivers and stable hands

can be, and are, tested at race

or trials meeting by the Racing

Integrity Unit,” he said.

“A number of drivers were tested

at a race meeting

[recently] and all

tests were clear.”

New Zealand

Harness Racing

Trainers and

Drivers Association

secretary

Peter Cook did

not think recreational

drug use

was widespread.

Colin

De Filippi

“The fact that one or two individuals

have been doing it does

not mean to say that recreational

drugs are rife in the industry,”

he said.

Senior harness racing driver

and trainer Colin De Filippi also

believed it wasn’t a problem.

“I’m not saying it is not there

I just don’t think it is a big problem,”

he said.

“I know some of the drivers

that do long hours, they tend

to do eight hours a day at the

stable and then drive to Dunedin

‘I know some of the drivers

that do long hours, they tend

to do eight hours a day at the

stable and then drive to Dunedin

and then home again,

some pretty long days and

some say they need some

stuff to keep them going.’

- Colin De Filippi

and then home again, some

pretty long days and some say

they need some stuff to keep

them going.”

Health agencies and the police

are concerned about the use of

ecstasy in society, particularly in

the party scene.

Ecstasy gives a person an

enhanced sense of well-being,

increased extroversion, and they

become highly affectionate. But

use of even moderate doses can

dramatically increase body temperature,

with potentially deadly

consequences.

Meanwhile, a Canterbury

harness trainer/driver has been

arrested on strangulation and assault

charges. He will appear in the

district court later this month.

BACKYARD CRITTERS

SELWYN TIMES

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.

Beautiful beetles but

savage predators

THE harlequin ladybird

(Harmonia axyridis) is a

nasty predator that was

first found in Auckland

in 2016 and has spread

through the North Island

and as far as Central Otago

in the South Island.

The 5-8mm long ladybird

is a native of eastern

and central Asia. It is

round to oval in shape,

domed and extremely variable

in colour and patterns.

Spots on ladybirds can

range in number from zero

to 22 , while colours range

from yellow-orange and

black. The thorax often has

black spots in the shape of

an ‘M’ or ‘W’.

The problem with this

species overseas is that

it has displaced native

ladybirds and could do the

same here.

The harlequin ladybird

contains a distasteful and

pungent chemical that it

uses in defence against

that can affect grape crops during harvest.

predators when threatened.

This can be an issue

when the ladybirds hide

amongst grapes during

harvest as the chemical

can taint the taste.

They overwinter as

adults in sheltered locations,

sometimes in

large groups and emerge

when temperatures reach

12 deg C.

Females lay between 20-

30 yellow eggs per day and

can produce as many as

3800 eggs in a lifetime.

Environmental silver for

Rolleston Christian School

ROLLESTON Christian School

has reached silver status as an

EnviroSchool.

The achievement builds on the

school’s bronze status obtained in

2018.

Pupils took part in a reflection

process with EnviroSchools regional

co-ordinator Andrea Taylor and the

Selwyn facilitator Matt Stanford.

Te Pihinga learning leader Mandy

Cleave said: “The reflection group

needed to provide evidence through

discussion, classwork and a school

tour that Rolleston Christian School

fulfilled the Silver paragraph. This

included having a strong vision, have

the EnviroSchools guiding principles

weaved through the curriculum and

visible in all areas of school life, and

having strong connections with our

community.”

The school was particularly strong

in the principles of sustainable communities,

empowered students and

learning for sustainability.

“While learning about food last

year, the pupils had to take part in

authentic action projects that led to

helping solve a problem or issue they

discovered through their learning.

“These projects included building

a greenhouse to help reduce

food miles and enable organic

gardening,”Ms Cleave said.

Other projects include re-homing

rescued chickens at school, collecting

cans of food for the Leeston Food

Bank, re-establishing outdoor vegetable

gardens, improving the school

recycling system, composting food

waste from lunch boxes and working

towards rubbish free lunch boxes.

The greenhouse and chicken coop

were built from recycled trampolines.

PRIDE: Rolleston Christian

School pupils and teachers with

the certificate.

SUCCESS:

Rolleston

Christian

School pupils

with one of

the initiatives,

donating to

the Leeston

Food Bank,

which has

led to them

receiving silver

status as an

HOLD ON TIGHT: Lincoln firefighter Marshall Parlane showing

Sienna Taylor how to use the fire hose. ​

Firefighters thank

Prebbleton pupils

LINCOLN volunteer

firefighters made a visit to

Prebbleton School last week.

The crew visited the school

to say thank you to the Whero

house students who donated

$129 to them in December.

Some of the firefighters are

former Prebbleton School pupils.

The school’s PTA held a

sausage sizzle at the end of last

year and gave each of the four

houses $258 to donate to any

charities.

Other charities to receive

money were the SPCA, City

Mission, Ellesmere Food Bank

and St John.

Readers respond to an

article about the plans

for a Countdown in the

Flemington subdivision on

Birchs Rd, Lincoln

Alexander Hayward: With

a new supermarket being built

in Prebbleton the proposal

for another in Birchs Rd is

unnecessary and will be a blot on

the landscape.

Lynda Gowers: Birchs Rd

used to be a lovely approach to

Lincoln. Wide road lined with

paddocks, then two housing

subdivisions took place on both

sides of the road. Birchs Rd

became narrower because

those houses have short

driveways and many cars are

parked on both sides of the

road. Flemington itself has

very narrow roads throughout.

When one of the subdivisions

started local residents couldn’t

understand why Selwyn

District Council allowed the

houses to be built facing the

main road. We expected the

houses would be built so that

they all exited through the

two existing roads into the

subdivision. When Countdown

comes at least it will give Lincoln

residents a choice between two

supermarkets. Shoppers exiting

Countdown onto Birchs Rd

won’t find it any more difficult

than the present situation at New

World.

EXPENSE: Brodie Grave was travelling along Jones Rd when

he hit this pothole causing his tyre to blow and his rim to buckle

(inset). Mr Grave wants the district council to pay for repairs. ​

A reader responds to

planned flood protection

work for Hororata

John Hicks: Hororata has

experienced higher intensity

rainfall run-off events over the

last two years. This has found the

drainage systems waning within

the Hororata catchment area, affecting

both rural and township

properties. The district council

funding to enable flood mitigation

works to be carried out will

be most welcome.

The major water-carrying

channels are badly in need

of a cleanout as is the shingle

build-up in the Hororata River

as a starting point to getting the

water more directly out of the

township notwithstanding the

other flooding issues affecting

residents in the outlying areas of

Hororata.

A reader responds to last

week’s article about West

Melton’s Brodie Grave, who

wants the district council

to help pay for repairs to his

car after he hit a pothole on

Jones Rd

Jenny Fitzgerald: Well

done Brodie for holding the

council accountable. This pothole

should have been patched long

ago. As should the one on the

Jones Rd railway crossing I went

into yesterday. I have just had

two new tyres and wheel alignment

done on my car. District

council staff don’t care because

they drive around in council

cars.

New Markham Junction

open for business

The first stage of the upmarket

Markham Junction development in

Tennyson Street opened at the end

of last year, bringing a new Chinese

and Indian restaurant to Rolleston,

as well as the trendy café Black &

White Coffee Cartel - already a local

favourite.

This is part of the new Rolleston

Town Centre precinct which is a

great addition to Rolleston’s dining

and retail offer. It also has a locally

owned Liquorland store, the popular

New Order Boutique for women’s

and men’s fashion, and Holly’s

Convenience Store with all the useful

things you find in a dairy.

Major road works in Tennyson Street

outside Markham Junction have

meant a change to traffic access to

the shopping precinct. Parking is now

accessible through the new Markham

Way extension off Norman Kirk Drive.

This allows people to duck directly

into the Markham Junction car park

without facing the roadworks on

Tennyson Street – a move which will

make it easier for the businesses and

customers alike. Pedestrian access

is still available off Tennyson Street

and residents are encouraged to take

advantage of this opportunity to keep

supporting local businesses.

The roadworks will take around four

months to complete depending on

weather, and signs are in place to help

people with the best access options.

Phenix is Rolleston’s first dine-in

Chinese restaurant with rave reviews

online, and Little India is part of the

popular chain of Indian restaurants

across both islands, based on chefs

having in-depth training to ensure a

quality meal each time. Black & White

Coffee Cartel is a popular new café

franchise that has rapidly expanded in

South Island. It has the charms of an

independent coffee shop with on-site

fresh coffee roasting.

New Order Boutique on the corner

carries a range of women’s and men’s

clothing with a mix of labels from

around the world as well as smaller NZ

manufacturers – the perfect place if

you’re looking for something special

to wear for you or a family member.

Liquorland also needs no introduction,

and Holly’s Convenience Store offers

everything you’d expect in a dairy,

from milk and a newspaper to icecream

and a grab and go snack.

If you’ve not popped into Markham

Junction yet – the businesses are open

and well worth a visit.

Eat, Shop & Relax

Come in and see us today! We

are still open during the road

works. Car parking access from

new Markham Way extension

off Norman Kirk Drive.

Pedestrian access still open.

Leeston-Southbridge set

to defend 45-over title

• By Jacob Page

MATCH-WINNER: Leeston-Southbridge’s Sam Chamberlain hit

65 and took four wickets with the ball to help his team make the

Canterbury Country 45-over final on March 21.

PHOTO: KAREN CASEY

LEESTON-Southbridge found

form at the right time to make

the Canterbury Country 45-over

final against Cheviot on March

21.

The defending champions were

in the midst of a four-match

losing streak before they met

Oxford Rangiora on Saturday.

Their North Canterbury opponents

were on a high after

claiming the twenty20 title on

Friday night and were eager to

repeat the performance, however,

Leeston-Southbridge prevailed

by four wickets.

Cheviot were able to topple

Southbrook by 82 runs at Cheviot

Domain.

Leeston-Southbridge, boosted

by the return of their Canterbury

Country representative players,

were able to restrict Oxford-

Rangiora to 186 all out.

They were able to get New

Zealand under-19 representative

Rhys Mariu for 68, just 24 hours

after he had scored a match-winning

101 in the twenty20 final.

The opener was the only meaningful

score with No 7 Mitch

Power the next best with 24.

Opening bowler Sam Chamberlain

was the star for the visitors

as he took four for 38 from

his nine overs.

Chamberlain then turned in a

stellar performance with the bat,

making 65 not out and combining

with opener Rupert Young

who made 86.

The pair came together at 20

for three and put on 127 to swing

the momentum of the match in

their favour.

Leeston-Southbridge got home

with 20 balls to spare.

Leeston-Southbridge wicketkeeper

Toby Doyle said the

bowlers produced the full length

needed at Pearson Park which

helped them take wickets and

keep the run-rate down.

“The pitch wasn’t easy with

some balls holding up in the

surface,” he said.

“The boundaries are quite short

square of the wicket so that’s

always a factor when bowling.

“Credit to Sam and Rupert,”

SPORT

he said.

“Their partnership was classy

throughout and they were able

to take calculated risks when

needed.”

In the plate matches, Lincoln

thumped Sefton by 96 runs on

the back of 126 from opener

Arthur Paterson.

Lincoln made 302 for eight and

then dismissed Sefton for 206.

Weedons made it two wins in

a row over Darfield thanks to a

six-wicket victory.

Weedons’ pursuit of 177 to win

was anchored by Todd Inness’

unbeaten 121.

•Canterbury Country will

host North Otago at MainPower

Oval starting Friday in their lone

defence of the Hawke Cup for the

summer.

After beating Hamilton a fortnight

ago, Canterbury Country

just need a first innings victory

to lock the cup away in their trophy

cabinet for the summer.

As a result of the Hawke Cup

fixture, there will be no club

cricket this weekend.

Men’s singles

key to winning

tennis final

• By Jacob Page

WEST MELTON will be the

team to beat in the Canterbury

Country senior tennis

competition final against

Kirwee-Springston at Nga Puna

Wai on Saturday.

Kirwee-Springston will not be

without a chance though as they

are the only team to topple the

competition front-runners all

season.

West Melton’s only loss came

against Kirwee-Springston on

February 1 when they were

beaten on count-back after each

team had eight match wins each.

The top two teams have gone

straight through to the final.

Ellesmere Tennis president

Jason McKenzie said if Kirwee-

Springston wanted to upset the

defending champions winning

the men’s singles ties would be

the key.

“They’ve got some strong players,

especially late in the season,”

he said.

Kirwee-Springston men’s

quartet of Jordan Edwards

Sebastian On, Michael Hadfield

and Todd Crozier swept aside

Tai Tapu on Saturday and would

likely need to do the same

against West Melton.

Rolleston-Killinchy will face

Prebbleton-Lincoln for third

while Tai Tapu and Fernside will

battle to try to avoid the wooden

spoon.

Selwyn Awards

returning

The Selwyn Awards are back in 2020 to showcase all that’s great about the district.

The biennial Awards recognise the outstanding work and achievements of businesses, not-forprofit

organisations and individuals who live or work in Selwyn.

The awards, presented during a gala evening at the Lincoln Event Centre, are an opportunity

to celebrate the success of people who contribute so much to our district, Mayor Sam

Broughton says.

Selwyn has a great mix of diverse people and organisations involved in building our community

through the jobs they create, the businesses they operate, their voluntary contribution and

beyond. The Awards are a chance to recognise their achievements and highlight some of the

models and examples that continue to make Selwyn such a good place to live.”

This year’s awards have been given a fresh feel to encourage participation, highlight areas of

particular excellence and enhance the gala evening on Saturday 1 August.

Categories and criteria have been updated and awards will be based on a points system, allowing

for multiple gold, silver and bronze winners in each category along with an overall category

winner. Businesses and groups will be able to enter themselves for awards when nominations

open in April. New sponsorship opportunities are also available.

The aim is to keep building on the Awards’ strong legacy, Council Group Manager Community

Services Denise Kidd says.

“The Selwyn Awards are a fantastic way to recognise the great work of so many people in Selwyn

and it’s become an important night on people’s calendars. We want to make sure that we’re

continuing to provide a fitting celebration of this community and we’re looking forward to a really

good night at this year’s awards.”

Remembering 15 March

On March 15 we will reflect on the one year anniversary of the

mosque attack in Christchurch which took 51 lives.

Mayor Sam Broughton reflects on the tragic event:

“The events of last year were a horrid

time for those directly involved and for

our wider community.

The response of love and kindness is

an example to us all.

Showing love to those who love you

in return is simple. Showing love to

those who act aggressively towards

you is next level love.

Selwyn is a multicultural district, and

we are a more exciting and vibrant

place for the diversity within our

community. No matter your ethnicity

or faith thank you for calling Selwyn

your home.”

Selwyn resident Shamsideen Iposu was at the Al Noor Mosque with

hundreds of others when the gunman opened fire. He and wife Sade

(pictured with their family below) shared their story as part of our

Faces of Selwyn series on the people who make up this district.

Recalling the day, Shamsideen says, “I was in the mosque. I

was lucky to be one of those that made it out. Some of us have

moved on and gone back to the mosque to do our thing, no fear,

no nothing, at least on my part. Not even the mosque incident will

discourage us from being New Zealanders, we are here to stay and

we like it here.”

Sade praised the support of New Zealanders.

“People are really supportive and genuine here and it gives us

comfort. Our Prime Minister had my respect.”

The family first moved to New Zealand in 2003 when Shamsideen

got a scholarship to complete his PhD at Lincoln University. After

brief periods back in Nigeria and living in Christchurch, they settled

in Rolleston in 2017, where they say they love the friendly people and

find themselves becoming more involved in the community every day.

Visit selwyn.govt.nz/facesofselwyn for the full story.

Intersections campaign aims for change

With all the growing statistics coming out of Selwyn here’s one we are not celebrating. Every year in

Selwyn there are 21 deaths and serious injuries caused by crashes at our intersections. 21. That’s over

100 people in five years killed or badly hurt.

Intersection crashes are our biggest road safety issue and they don’t discriminate.

These crashes are happening to everyone; young and old, male and female and at all types of

intersections. They are happening day and night, any month or any day of the week. That’s why it’s so

important that we check and check again – every intersection, every time.

We can have an effect on these stats. We can make a change. Take a good look at how you drive. Slow

down. Stop at stop signs. Put your phone down. Wear your safety belt. Be the difference.

CHECK–

CHECK AGAIN

Every intersection,

every time.

McMillan Reserve upgrade

under way

The final steps to upgrade the McMillan Reserve in Southbridge will

get under way this week.

The second phase of the development will include a flag pole, along

with pathways, a seated courtyard, historical information panels,

new benches, picnic tables and new planting. The work is expected

to take up to 10 weeks to complete, depending on the weather.

During this time the playground at the reserve will need to be closed

for safety.

The $180,000 reserve development began last year with an upgrade

of the playground.

Design is under way for a war memorial, which will be installed at

a later date and will commemorate over 200 local service men and

women from World War I and World War II.

Springston Super Smash a hit

SPORT

• By Jacob Page

SPRINGSTON Domain was

alive with the sight and sounds

of cricket for the third annual

Super Smash event, on Sunday.

The event saw 28 teams of

six ranging from ages four to

13 take part in the Springston

Cricket Club’s main fundraiser.

Junior club captain Glenn

Hartley said 40 matches were

played on the five pitches

throughout the day with teams

split into three grades based on

ability and age.

Tai Tapu won section one,

Springston Green won section

two and Lincoln won section

three.

“It’s a really popular event, we

had to turn teams away this year

so it shows we are onto a good

thing,” he said.

The money raised from the

tournament and raffles would go

to new equipment uniforms and

hats for the 2020/2021 season.

The amount raised will be

known late next week.

“We’ll be back for another

turn next year and we are

just really grateful to the

whole Selwyn community for

supporting the event like they

do,” Hartley said.

RELIEF: Harry Iggo of Weedons dives back

into his crease.

The Next Big Thing...

West Melton

Rare breeds thriving on

a West Melton farm

Keeping and breeding rare species of animals and

birds is a passion for Glenda Goatley – and one she

began pursuing as soon as she and her husband moved

to their West Melton farm in 2013.

Growing up on a high-country farm, Glenda

developed a love of animals from an early age. After

moving away from there as an adult she missed that

connection, so was thrilled to get back to a rural

environment.

“I’d been a ‘townie’ for too many years. So, when we

moved to the farm, I started collecting animals as fast

as I could.”

Not just any animals, though. As she puts it: “The

weirder the better!”

Glenda joined the Rare Breeds Society in March

2013, and now has a collection of over 20 rare breeds

at Glenlothian Farm. Among them is the Arapawa

goat, an unusual goat with curved horns, which was

originally brought to New Zealand by Captain Cook

and inhabits islands in the Marlborough Sounds. There

are several other goat species at the farm, as well as

kunekune pigs and sheep including the Gotland sheep,

a Swedish breed with distinctive curly wool.

Some breeds of sheep are rapidly disappearing, like

the Romney, bred for its mix of wool and meat.

“People may be surprised to know that there are not

many of these left in New Zealand,” Glenda says. “They

were widely farmed 30 or 40 years ago, but people have

forgotten about them.”

Her bird collection includes peacocks, golden

pheasants, several rare breeds of flightless ducks, and

the unusual Australian Cape Barren goose, which has

a grey body, green beak, red legs and black feet.

The more common species on the farm include

wallabies, alpacas and Shetland ponies.

Apart from her own desire to keep animals again,

Glenda says she was also prompted to do so when

she witnessed the joy and pleasure people got from

something as simple as holding a young chick in their

hands at an A&P Show display.

Many people living in towns and cities don’t get the

opportunity to see animals and birds close up, and

Glenlothian Farm can give them that opportunity.

“For example, an Indian family visited us and saw

the peacocks. The Indian lady said the peacock was

her country’s national bird, yet she had never seen one

in real life, so it was a great thrill for her,” Glenda says.

Even though there is a wide diversity of animal

breeds and species on the farm, she says they mostly

get along together.

“They all have quite distinctive traits and

personalities, and some of them are scamps and can be

naughty.”

Glenlothian Farm is located between Rolleston

and West Melton. For more information about

West Melton

Vibrant district offers

attractive lifestyle

Exciting

violin concert

Known for its farms and lifestyle blocks, West

Melton has become increasingly vibrant and diverse in

recent years as more people have chosen to move there

to enjoy the lifestyle it offers.

Located 230 metres from the West Melton township,

the Wilfield subdivision has become home to many

new residents, with its reserve areas, tennis court,

basketball hoop, walking trails and playground

providing plenty of recreational opportunities.

Young families making their home in West Melton

have the benefit of quality childcare at The

Cat’s Pyjamas Pre-school and Nursery,

which the owner says has seen strong

demand for places this year.

Families can also be confident that the

furry members of the household will be

well taken care of at the West Melton

Vet Centre. Their experienced team

provides a full range of services including

vaccinations, consultations, surgery,

dentistry, and X-ray, and much more.

Plus, they can supply all your dog and

cat food needs with their in-store product

range, or on a 24-hour order-in service.

The new shopping strip at West Melton,

which opened in 2016, has a selection

of retail outlets and services to meet

local needs. They include The Salon

hairdressers, where owner Viki and her team of

experienced stylists offer cut, colouring and styling

services to cater for all members of the family.

The bright, spacious Unichem West Melton

Pharmacy offers an extensive range of health and

beauty products and services, while the friendly staff

can provide any assistance customers need. With

winter just around the corner, they will be pleased to

through the cooler months.

He studied under Stephen Larsen in Christchurch and with

Growing with Rolleston’s motoring needs

Diesel vehicles can be more economic

with greater fuel efficiency. However,

like all motor vehicles, they need regular

servicing and maintenance. When a fuel

injection unit needs repairing, it should

be carried out by a qualified automotive

diesel engineer.

“Common rail injectors are prone to

failure due to fuel contamination, which

can be very expensive,” explains Phil

Thompson who with wife Kylie owns

Diesel Fix in Rolleston.

Diesel Fix has the proper equipment

to test your common rail injectors,

pinpointing any problem and determining

if the unit needs to be replaced.

Phil says they are seeing a number of

problems with DPF (diesel particulate

filters). This may be caused by faulty

injectors or the incorrect oil being used.

He will test the injectors and pump and

if repairs are needed consider the most

appropriate approach for your DPF.

He cleans and flows petrol EFI injectors,

reconditions fuel injectors and can also

modify the injection system on your 4x4

to increase its power.

Phil Thompson is a qualified

Automotive and diesel fuel injection

engineer, making him one of an elite

group of diesel fuel injection

experts in Canterbury and around

New Zealand. He completed trade

qualifications and training courses

spanning a number of years,

including in Australia and has

more than 30 years fuel injection

work behind him.

Phil looks after all facets of

diesel fuel injection servicing,

from dismantling pumps to

reconditioning the

units. Diesel Fix

reconditions fuel

injection pumps

and injectors, services

common rail injectors and

Efi injectors, and carries out

compression testing and vehicle

scanning.

With the latest diagnostic

equipment on site, Diesel Fix

can also take care of general automotive

servicing.

They carry new common rail injectors,

reconditioned injector pumps and

injectors (for supply or exchange) and

other diesel parts. Also in stock are Koba

batteries for motor vehicles, motorcycles,

jet skis and four wheelers, as well as

marine batteries and deep cycle batteries

ADVERTORIAL

WHAT’S YOUR

POISON?

Don’t be fooled into

thinking that the title for

this year’s Kim Hill Hot

Topic discussion refers to

your favourite alcoholic

drink!

Each year, radio broadcaster

Kim Hill chairs a panel

discussion, coordinated by

Lincoln Envirotown, on a

subject of national and global

environmental significance. For the 10th Hot Topic the discussion will focus on the use

of chemicals in food production and on our land.

The use of pesticides and herbicides is topical throughout the world and has even led to

huge legal settlements in the United States of America.

Our expert panellists will discuss some facts and myths about managing pests, diseases

and weeds. They will also examine the issues around whether Agrichemicals are

helpful or harmful and whether pesticides are good or evil.

The discussion is certain to be stimulating and entertaining, with the audience invited

to question the panellists during the evening.

Please join us in The Stewart Building of Lincoln University on Thursday

26th March. Doors open at 6.30 pm for refreshments and nibbles with the

event starting at 7.30 pm.

Bigger is better in Mercedes-Benz SUV

WHEN I FIRST drove the GLS

series Mercedes-Benz sport

utility vehicle several years ago,

I commented on its size, it was

big at around 4.7m, the dimensions

translating to considerable

internal space.

The GLS has undergone a

transformation and, remarkably,

it is now even bigger thanks to

a wheelbase increase, the sevenseat

sport utility vehicle now sits

at over 5.2m, making it one of the

biggest SUVs in the New Zealand

market.

The benefit is that all occupants

can travel in genuine comfort, the

rear seat area is more than just

something you load the kids into,

adults can be seated there with

reasonable freedom.

If you don’t use the rear row of

seats frequently, they fold down

to offer a cavernous load area,

and depending on how you have

the seats configured, load space

relates to 470-litres to 1350-litres

to 2400-litres.

It’s this kind of capability that

makes SUVs what they are and

why they are so popular, the GLS

is the perfect vehicle for those

who have a sizeable family and

want to travel in luxury and

grace. However, bear in mind that

the GLS 400d in this form is a

pricey beast, it will set you back

$168,500 in standard form.

The GLS 400d is powered by

Mercedes-Benz’s new generation

inline six-cylinder diesel.

The turbocharged unit is rated at

243kW with an amazing 700Nm

of torque; as a consequence, the

3-litre unit has all of the wonderful

mid-range power attributes

that makes diesel so appealing as

a fuel.

The engine is a powerhouse

through the whole acceleration

process, it will cut out a standstill

to 100km/h time of 5.1sec, and

will make 120km/h from 80km/h

in 3.9sec.

Steering wheel-mounted paddle

shifters working on a ninespeed

automatic gearbox will

assist the driver if he/she decides

to take control over the acceleration

process.

It wouldn’t be a world-class

diesel engine unless you get the

benefits of thrifty fuel usage,

and that is certainly the case

in the 400d. It is rated with a

7.7-litre per 100km combined

cycle average. At 100km/h the

engine works over leisurely at just

1300rpm, returning a 6.1l/100km

instantaneous figure.

These figures are quite remarkable

for a vehicle which weighs

MERCEDES-BENZ GLS 400d: Large car space and comfort.

in quite tubby at 2724kg, but the

point is the engineering that is

coming out of the Mercedes-Benz

factories at the moment, especially

those with diesel power,

are at the forefront of technology,

and the 400d is just one example

of performance and economy all

rolled into one.

I took the evaluation car on

a loop through the roads of Courtenay,

the 400d eats up distance

unassumingly, it is quiet and

amazingly comfortable through

its air suspension.

When the long straights run

out it has handling which belies

its bulk. A lot of that is to do

with the amount of grip on offer.

Twenty-one inch Pirelli PZero

tyres are fitted and, not only do I

rate them as some of the world’s

finest, they are so big that grip

seems never-ending. You can

push the big GLS into a corner

and it reacts like something half

its size, steering feel is constantly

informative and even though it

is tall at over 1.8m, gravitational

force over the suspension is well

arrested

Another benefit of air suspension

is the ride quality over uneven

surfaces, the GLS just seems

to float over the bumps, generating

just a little jiggle if the ruts are

extreme – and there are plenty of

those in Christchurch. However,

the GLS is engineered for comfort,

and there doesn’t seem to be

anything you can throw at the big

SUV that will upset it.

Of course, power is channelled

through to all four wheels

and it’s interesting to note that

Mercedes-Benz offer an optional

off-roadpackage for this car. With

199mm of ground clearance in

• Price – Mercedes-Benz

GLS 400d, $168,500

• Dimensions – Length,

height, 1823mm

• Configuration – Sixcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2925cc, 243kW, 700Nm,

nine-speed automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 5.1sec

• Fuel usage – 7.7l/100km

standard form, it does lend itself

to a cross-country challenge, if

you are brave enough to risk a

luxury vehicle on those bushlined

off-the-seal journeys.

As you would expect from

Mercedes-Benz, the GLS is full

of luxury appointments, it has

the kit to make you feel you have

bought a lot of car, and there is so

much safety specification it will

allow all occupants to travel with

the knowledge they have state-ofthe

art protection systems.

The GLS 400d is just another

example of what makes

Mercedes-Benz so desirable as a

manufacturer.

It might not be the most

suitable vehicle for the school

run or for tackling that tight city

metered car park, but the reality

is it is a sport utility vehicle

that offers so much desirability

in other areas, and it makes a

powerful statement. The styling

upgrade for 2020 makes for a

dynamic visual presence.

From family cars to work trucks, and

supercars to fixer-uppers no matter

what you're looking for you can find it

all with Drivesouth.

DO YOU miss your bright,

summer garden flowers? Or do

you feel like your garden has

passed its best-before date?

The good news is that with

the arrival of autumn, (on the

calendar at least) you can now

start prepping your flower

garden for the cooler months

ahead. And there’s no better

place to start than with some

hanging baskets.

Baskets are the garden for

everyone. Whether you’ve got

a large garden or only a small

apartment balcony or courtyard

– they’ll inject colour and

lift the mood of any area. You

can attach them under verandas,

at your front door or hang

them from garden walls or

trellis.

Baskets are a fun and manageable

project when setting

up. They’re super easy to maintain

over the cooler months;

which, if you’re anything like

me, is a welcome relief from all

the watering and weeding I’ve

been doing lately.

I often suggest baskets to

people whose gardens have

overwhelmed them, and they

don’t know where to start. I

tell them to adopt a simplistic

plants, I really like a fulllooking

apart. Around the edge I

suggest you plant cascading

plants, like lobelia and alyssum.

Inject colour to the middle

of the basket with pansies,

polyanthus and viscaria. And

try to plant something taller

in the middle, like dwarf

antirrhinum. Remember,

mixed herbs are a great way to

mix up a hanging basket, and a

bonus when hung close to the

kitchen.

Once you’ve got your basket

sorted, hang and enjoy – in

six to eight weeks your pops

of autumn colour will start

to come through. If you’d like

your basket hung a little lower,

extend it with some garden

chain, or use some fishing

nylon and double it over a few

times.

Remember to keep your

baskets watered, more so while

it’s still warm. But come winter,

every few days is fine. Just stick

your finger in the soil, and if

feels dry give a good watering.

Come (next) summer, when

it becomes too hot to maintain

your baskets, simply compost

everything but the basket itself

and then store for next time.

Tasty Bites

Divine date night delights

• By Ian Knott

These delicious date

night dishes are bound to

impress your significant

other - or better still,

spend some quality time

preparing and cooking

them together

Seared scallops with bacon

and zucchini noodles

Serves 2

Ingredients

3 slices bacon

6 jumbo scallops

2 zucchinis made into noodles

½ large lemon, juiced (1½ Tbsp)

1 tsp lemon zest

1 cups chopped tomatoes

1 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Place a large, heavy skillet

(cast iron will be best for searing

scallops) over medium heat,

add bacon and cook for 3-5min

on each side or until crispy but

not burnt (it will add a different

texture to the dish). Remove

bacon and transfer to a plate lined

with paper towel. Crumble or

roughly chop after it’s cool.

Leave bacon fat in the skillet

‘Famous for their roasts!’

and remove skillet from heat

(about 2-3min) to cool slightly.

Pat scallops dry. Right before

cooking, season scallops with

salt & pepper. Do it any sooner,

Start your

day with us

and the salt will draw out their

moisture, making them wet again,

and thus preventing that delicious

caramelisation.

Gently, add scallops one at a

time to heated skillet. Add about

1 Tbsp butter to pan only if you

don’t have enough bacon fat left.

Scallops cook quickly and if

they’re overcooked, they will

become rubbery. Once they are

deeply golden brown, with a

caramelised exterior (2-3min

max), flip them only once when

they’re nicely browned. Once

browned on both sides, remove

them to a plate.

Add zucchini noodles to the

same skillet and season with salt

& pepper. Let zucchini noodles

cook for about 1min, flipping and

stirring frequently. As the noodles

cook, add in the lemon juice and

zest. Also, toss in tomatoes and

crumbled bacon. Continue to

cook for about 2-3min.

Divide zucchini noodles onto

four plates, top with scallops and

garnish with fresh chopped

parsley. Enjoy!

Espresso

brownies

Ingredients

1 egg at room

temperature

¼ cup + 2 Tbsp

coconut oil

½ cup espresso or

strong brewed coffee

⅔ cup of sugar

¼ cup + 1 Tbsp coconut flour

¼ cup cocoa powder

3 Tbsp instant coffee

2 tsp vanilla essence

¼ tsp sea salt

3 tsp cornflour or arrowroot

Directions

Preheat oven to 180 deg C and

prepare an 20cm square baking

pan by lining it with a sheet of

aluminum foil, leaving overhang on

the sides to allow for easy removal.

Grease the foil and set aside.

Combine all ingredients in a

mixing bowl using an electric

mixer and add to baking pan. You

can also just mix by hand.

Bake for about 25-30min until

center is set. Allow brownies

to cool for about 20min before

cutting.

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.”

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Built to impress

You may have seen a grand home

fronting Springston Rolleston Road,

sitting at the entrance to Faringdon’s

latest residential housing estate.

Designed and built by R&B Builders,

this 246 square metre three bedroom

home (215sqm downstairs and a 31sqm

mezzanine lounge floor) has lots of

pizzazz.

Industrial chic and warmth are created

with clever architectural features like

large windows and stunning interior

design and furnishings. With two

separate living areas, there is room for the

family and a place for a tête-à-tête. Glass

viewing and open bamboo treads give

visual appeal to the stairway accessing the

mezzanine floor.

Carpet minimises noise in the lounge

and bedroom areas while laminated

wooden flooring ensures serviceability.

The industrial chic theme is apparent

with a ‘blue steel’ backdrop behind the

wall mounted television in the lounge,

softened by sheers on the windows.

A ‘must see’ is the kitchen. Its

Lookcrete cabinetry panelling (by Stage

Doors) may be a little more expensive

yet is serviceable, durable and looks

great. The ‘true blue steel’ bench tops (by

Steel&Tube) are clearly industrial chic

in look and use. An island tower Fawcett

and quality Fisher & Paykel appliances

of induction cooktop, under bench oven

and dish drawer, complete the picture.

In the good sized pantry, space has been

allowed for a double fridge.

The master bedroom is generous yet

not too large, augmented by a goodsized

walk-in robe and plush ensuite.

The second and third bedrooms are both

doubles.

Within the main bathroom is a large

tiled walk-in glass door shower, 900mm

vanity and freestanding bath set on

a staged plinth. In the ensuite, a tiled

walk-in shower and two 900mm vanities

ensure no hold-ups when getting ready

for work.

A fully automated system allows

remote control of the heating, lighting,

entertainment and security systems.

In-slab pre-piped heating, a ducted heat

pump and gas fire in the lounge ensure

a warm home in the cooler months. Gas

water heating means instant hot water

without the wastage.

Even the laundry has the look of luxury

with a ‘true blue steel’ benchtop, good

sized tub, tower fawcett, space for washer

and dryer, overhead cupboards, and rail

for hanging the odd damp garment. The

garage is slightly larger than a double.

Cladding of the home is Kensington

grey Rockcote with Urban radiate vertical

timber on the garage and Flaxpod

Colorsteel at the front entrance. Its

roofing is Flaxpod Colorsteel T-Rib.

R&B Builders has an architectural

design team, Design R&B who work with

clients to design their homes, whether

building with the company or another

builder.

R&B Builders’ new Rolleston

showhome is located at 54 Lanner

Drive and is open every Saturday

and Sunday from 12noon until 4pm.

Someone is often there afternoons,

from Wednesday to Friday or

appointment.
