Deadly intersections to be made safer

IMPROVEMENTS: Roundabouts have been approved for the intersections of Shands and Blakes Rds and Springs and Marshs

Rds in a bid to improve safety.

• By Devon Bolger

TWO DEADLY

intersections will get

roundabouts in a bid to

make them safer.

Dual-lane roundabouts

have been approved

by the district

Peter Hunter

council

for the intersections

of Springs and Marshs

Rds and Shands and

Blakes Rds.

They are expected to

be substantially complete

by 2021.

The Shands and Blakes

Rds intersection was named one

of the worst in Canterbury in

2018 based on crash statistics.

There have been two fatal

crashes, one serious, and nine

minor at the intersection since

2011. Two people died in a

crash there in February 2018.

There has also been one

serious crash and two non-injury

crashes at the intersection.

Prebbleton Community

Association chairman Peter

Hunter said: “I absolutely

support traffic safety

improvements, especially

around Prebbleton as this

area continues to grow.”

Flood danger

to majority

of district

properties

• By Devon Bolger

JUST OVER 23,000 properties in

the district could be affected by

a major flood in the future a new

report has found.

Computer-modelling has found

23,500 properties are affected in

some way by flood hazard which

means there are areas on their

property that might be at least

5cm under water if a one-in-200-

year flood occurs.

Mayor Sam Broughton said it is

the majority of properties in the

district.

“What surprised me the most

was the extensiveness of it. This is

data that we have received from Environment

Canterbury and it isn’t

just picking one or two properties

but looking at flooding across the

district,” Mr Broughton said.

“It is too early to tell if the new

information will lead to further

flood protection work in the

district.”

Councillor Sophie McInnes said

“People shouldn’t panic. The data

is based on computer-modelling

that is happening nationwide.

This is not just something that is

happening in Selwyn.”

The district council, with the help

of ECan, carried out computerbased

flood modelling to predict

the extent and depth of flooding

that could happen during a onein-200

year flood. • Turn to page 4

ROUNDABOUTS for two of the district’s

trickiest and dangerous intersections are

long overdue.

On page 1 today, we report the district

council has finally approved roundabouts

for the Springs/Marshs and Shands/Blakes

intersections.

They can be nightmares to get across and while dropping the

speed limits on Springs and Shands has made it less treacherous,

it is not by much.

Many frustrated drivers trying to get across Marshs and

Blakes, or turning right into Springs and Shands, will put the

foot down to beat oncoming vehicles.

The roundabouts won’t be in place until mid next year, but at

least they are going in.

Also on page 1, not such good news on flooding risks in the

district. A snapshot of the world we live in.

Lincoln University cows used

for ‘cruel and barbaric’ research

• By Sophie Cornish

HOLES HAVE been cut into

the sides of cows as part of

an experiment at a Lincoln

University research facility.

An animal rights group has

called the procedure, “cruel,

insensitive and barbaric.”

The procedure is called fistulating

which involves cutting a 15cm

hole into the side of a cow to gain

direct access to their stomachs.

A permanent plastic ring is

fitted into the hole with a lid on

it, so researchers can put their

arms straight

inside a cow’s

stomach, to

allow contents

to be removed

or chemicals directly

inserted.

Tara Jackson

A Lincoln

University

spokesperson

said fistulated cows were used for

research into rumen digestibility.

“Any research carried out by

Lincoln University involving

animals must be approved by

the Lincoln University Animal

Ethics Committee and meet the

standards of the University’s

Code of Ethical Conduct for the

Use of Animals and the Animal

PERMANENT: A fistulated cow pictured at a Lincoln University

facility in 2008.

Welfare Act 1999,” the spokesperson

said.

“The LUAEC ensures that all

research, testing and teaching by

Lincoln University involving animals

is conducted according to the

CEC and Animal Welfare Act.”

Animal rights group New

Zealand Anti-Vivisection Society

has strongly condemned the

procedure, saying cows can still

suffer from the intrusive surgery

up to 11 days after the surgery.

Executive director Tara Jackson

said the experiments, the

most “gruesome she’d ever seen”

are being done to enhance the

animal agriculture industry.

“Can you imagine poking

your arm inside living being’s

stomach? Yet again, animals are

treated as test subjects,” she said.

“I think for a lot of Kiwis, it

would be quite a shock to see the

link between animal testing and

animal agriculture sector. You

definitely don’t pick up a carton

of milk and think ‘oh was animal

testing conducted for this product’

so it is a whole other side of

it that is quite hidden.

“This procedure is the epitome

of using cows as mere objects,

like cars with gas tanks. Cows

are intelligent and sensitive animals

who do not deserve to be

tortured for any reason.”

The procedure is generally

done to examine the contents of

the cow’s stomach in the name

of research to improve the cow’s

milk production or decrease its

methane production.

NZAVS have uncovered a

range of different research papers

online which show the procedure

has been used at Lincoln University

as early as 1994.

The Lincoln University spokesperson

said there was no current

research in progress.

The cows involved in the

research would will remain

fistulated for the duration of

their life.

“The cows are retained for

future research and remain

under the supervision of the

LUAEC and day-to-day care of

professionally trained staff,” the

spokesperson said.

In Brief

EVENTS CANCELLED

Two events in the district

have been postponed due to

Covid-19. The Hororata Primary

School’s 150th jubilee planned

for this weekend has been put on

hold. Committee chairman Rod

Oliver said they hope to still hold

the event within the year. The

Lincoln Envirotown Trust’s Kim

Hill Hop Topic event on March

26 has also been postponed. A

new date will be announced in

the future.

MYSTERIOUS CAR FIRE

Firefighters in Darfield were

called after a blaze in a burntout

vehicle mysteriously reignited

on McLaughlins Rd on

Sunday. Members of the Darfield

Volunteer Fire Brigade were

called to the fire at 2.33pm.

A Fire and Emergency NZ

spokeswoman said the car had

initially caught fire on Saturday

night but then somehow it had

re-ignited. She said the car had

no registration number and was

likely dumped in the area. While

the fire may have re-ignited by

itself, the spokeswoman said

the cause is not yet known.

Meanwhile, a fire engulfed an

old hay shed in Sheffield in the

early hours of Sunday morning.

Fire crews from the Sheffield and

Springfield stations were called

to fight the blaze on West Coast

Rd, Sheffield, about 12.56am.

Submissions sought on bylaw

which could include cats

• By Devon Bolger

RESIDENTS WILL get to

have their say on whether

cats should be controlled

under a new bylaw.

A report presented at a

district council meeting

last week recommended

cats be excluded from the

bylaw about the keeping of

animals, other than dogs,

in urban areas.

But district councillors

agreed to include them in

the consultation document

meaning people will get

to make submissions on

the options for addressing

issues with cats.

A draft bylaw will now

be drawn up and sent to

township committees

in June or July. It

will also include rules

around the keeping of

poultry and bees.

The tabled report

said: “Provisions

relating to the

de-sexing and

microchipping of cats are

problematic with issues.

“These include the quantification

of the perceived

problems caused by cats,

doubt that the provisions

Jeff Bland

in the bylaw will have any

impact on the perceived

problems caused by cats

and a risk that the provisions

will be found to be

unreasonable,” it

said.

Councillor Jeff

Bland said at the

meeting: “My

personal feeling is

that we have to do

something. Cats kill

lizards, birds and

all kinds of things and I

think we need to have the

courage to do something

about it.”

District councillors

also agreed to support the

drafting and implementation

of national legislation

to control cats as well as

submitting to Environment

Canterbury through

its annual plan process to

control feral cats in Canterbury.

Said group manager

environmental and

regulatory services

Tim Harris: “The huge

population growth we’ve

had in the district has

also meant a big increase

in pets and animals

living in our towns so it’s

a good time to start

thinking about the issues

that come with that.”

Prebbleton grateful for

0800 ACLAND

Hornby’s support in fight against waste plant

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

and Devon Bolger

PREBBLETON residents

say they are grateful to have

the support of the Hornby

community.

A group of Prebbleton and

Hornby residents attended the

Christchurch City Council meeting

on Thursday – with many

dressed in protective suits and

masks.

Said Prebbleton

resident

Diane White:

“It was great to

see them at the

meeting. We

Diane White

have a lot of

support from

people outside of Prebbleton trying

to raise awareness about it.

It’s not just a Prebbleton issue.”

Waste Management has applied

to expand its current site

and operate the toxic waste treatment

plant at 305 Marshs Rd in

South Hornby.

In its resource consent application,

it said the plant will

treat and manage items, such as

pesticides, acid, used tyres and

other types of rubbish.

In a fiery deputation to the city

council, Greater Hornby Residents’

Association treasurer Ross

FIGHT: Prebbleton and Hornby residents inside the Christchurch

City Council office on Thursday protesting against a plan to put a

hazardous waste plant in their backyard ​

Houliston called the consultation

process over Waste Management’s

application to operate a

waste stabilisation and treatment

facility a “dictatorship.”

“You will notice I am dressed

in black, this is normal when

people are in mourning. The

Waipuna area is in mourning

because city council staff have

shown a total lack of respect for

this area by issuing consents to

put this in here.

“No public consultation was

called and residents in our area

weren’t consulted denying them

their democratic right to speak

out on whether locals wanted

this or not,” Mr Houliston said.

It followed a deputation on

Thursday from Ms White on how

the plant could impact the area.

Resource consent was granted

for the proposed plant by the city

council in December 2018.

Environment Canterbury 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

only people within 500m of the

proposed facility had a chance to

have their say.

“The GHRA therefore asks this

consent be placed on hold and a

full and open consultation process

take place,” Mr Houliston

said.

The GHRA has also requested

permanent full monitoring

equipment be installed around

the perimeter of waste management’s

Eagle helicopter and community patrols

Dean Harker

Selwyn Police

Area response manager

Senior Sergeant Dean

Harker talks about police

activity in the district and

community patrols

OVER THE last month, we have

been busy with a number of

incidents occurring across the

district.

A number of residents may have

heard the police Eagle helicopter

flying over the area in recent

weeks. The helicopter has assisted

local staff to apprehend offenders

and hold them to account.

One incident involved Eagle

following three vehicles seen

decamping from a dwelling

burglary in Selwyn, the vehicles

were tracked by the helicopter

and local staff were able to stop

the vehicles and arrest the occupants.

It helped locate a vehicle that

has previously been involved in a

police pursuit that was abandoned

due to the driving of the

offender, this vehicle was followed

by Eagle and local police

were directed to where the vehicle

and occupants were hiding.

It also located a drunk driver

travelling back from Akaroa

where members of the public had

called police concerned with the

manner of driving.

Another event that occurred in

the district was a search warrant

that was executed on a property

occupied by a number of gang

members, a large number of

police staff were involved in the

operation.

Firearms, drugs and other

property of interest were located

and a number of people from the

address are facing charges.

In the last few weeks, I have

been able to attend meetings

with our local community

patrols.

One patrol is based in Darfield

and looks after the Malvern area

and the Selwyn patrol which

covers Lincoln, Prebbleton, West

Melton and other towns within

our district.

The community patrols are a

volunteer organisation, working

in co-operation with the New

Zealand police.

The patrols operate during the

day and at night to help make

our communities safe, the patrols

act as the ‘eyes and ears” for

the police and do not have any

jurisdiction beyond that.

All community patrol members

undergo training and are

assessed prior to joining the

patrols, the patrols themselves

are regularly provided with areas

to patrol by the police.

Members working on these

patrols work on a roster and just

help with the patrols whenever

they can, for some people it may

be as little as one evening or day

per fortnight.

Police rely heavily on community

patrols throughout New

Zealand and our local patrols do

a fantastic job, both patrols are

currently looking for new members

or donations to help them

function.

On our police district staffing

front, we have just interviewed

and recommended two new police

staff to work in the district.

The vacancies we had were in

These two new members will

be profiled in the Selwyn Times

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in

entomology (insects and other invertebrates).

Magpie moth often

mistaken for butterfly

A STUNNING looking day-flying

moth that is often mistaken for

a butterfly is the magpie moth,

Nyctemera annulata.

This moth has black wings

with white markings on the

them. The thorax and abdomen

are striped black and orange,

with a wingspan of 35-45mm.

The magpie moth is a New

Zealand endemic and is found

throughout both islands.

Females lay yellow eggs on

undersides of native and exotic

Senecio species, ragwort and

cineraria.

Larvae, or woolly bears as they

are often called, are very hairy,

black and yellow in colour, and

about 35mm when fully grown.

The alkaloids used by plants

as defence against herbivores are

sequestered by larvae and utilised

for their own defence against

birds.

The striped orange and black

markings on both larvae and

moths is a warning of their toxic

bitter taste.

Only the shining cuckoo is

capable of eating the caterpillars.

Magpie moth pupae are also

parasitised by a native wasp

species.

LINCOLN HIGH School has

named its top academic year 11

The Maureen Drayton Cup

for Excellence in year 12 went to

The students achieved the

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

SELWYN TIMES

The Council has started informing landowners of the latest findings on flooding and coastal

hazard risks, and how it’s proposing to manage them in the new District Plan.

As part of the current District Plan Review, the Council is required to assess and manage natural

hazards. It now also has to look at more extreme weather events and the possible effects of

climate change over the next 100 years, says Tim Harris, Council’s Group Manager Environmental

and Regulatory Services.

As is now required, the Council has carried out flood modelling to predict the possible extent

and depth of flooding outside of coastal areas during a one-in-200-year flood, he says.

As a result of this modelling, a much larger area of the district has been identified as susceptible

to flooding.

“A one-in-200-year flood has a 0.5 percent chance of happening in any given year. However, it’s

important we let all affected landowners know of an existing natural hazard and how we propose

to manage it in the new District Plan,” says Mr Harris.

Rules proposed to address this in the new District Plan are similar to the current plan, but include

an increased minimum floor height for all new dwellings in affected areas. This proposed height

would be 300mm above a one-in-200-year flood level, instead of the current one-in-50-year level.

These rules would come into effect with the new plan, which is expected to be in place in mid-2022.

From this week, as is legally required, any new Land Information Memorandum (LIM) reports for

an affected property will contain a note indicating it may be susceptible to flooding, or coastal

erosion, or inundation under certain circumstances. The note will identify the latest technical

information held by the Council.

The Council is expecting to notify the Proposed District Plan for public consultation by the middle

of this year.

For more information, including a map of affected areas and all the technical reports, check out

the Council’s engagement hub at selwyn.govt.nz/districtplanreview.

For further questions you can call the Council on 0800 SELWYN (735 996) or talk to a planner at

one of our public drop-in sessions.

Please check closer to the time for any changes to the schedule.

Tertiary Scholarships

supporting success

Scholarships from Selwyn District Council are helping Selwyn young

people thrive beyond school.

The Council awarded six tertiary education scholarships to year 12

and 13 students at Darfield High School, Ellesmere College and

Lincoln High School in 2019, for a broad range of tertiary education

and training. This year, scholarships will also be offered to students

at Rolleston College.

The scholarships have been expanded to encourage diversity, reach

and access.

Students are encouraged to apply if they have achieved academic,

sporting, cultural, or art successes at school, in clubs, or

organisations, or overcome barriers or hardships.

Mekaela Fleener, from Ellesmere College, received a scholarship to

purchase a violin for her music studies at the University of Canterbury.

“I think the scholarship is a really neat opportunity, especially for

those who aren’t good at getting high marks, who might have merit

in other places.”

Molly Barker, from Lincoln High School, bought seven health science

textbooks for her studies at Otago University with her scholarship.

“I think it’s really great to have a scholarship from outside of your

school. The external party can view candidates more equally.”

Mayor Sam Broughton says the scholarships have a wider impact

than just helping individuals.

“There are many ambitious young people in Selwyn focussed

on furthering their education to in turn contribute to their families

and community.”

Councillor Jenny Gallagher has been involved with the

scholarships for over five years and says the scholarships ensure

Selwyn youth have similar access to opportunities as those in

bigger metropolitan areas.

Councillor Shane Epiha was also on the selection panel and thought

every individual was a worthy candidate.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity for our rangatahi future leaders –

some have amazing stories of perseverance overcoming

challenging situations.”

Directory helps local businesses

connect

The refreshed Selwyn Business Directory helps businesses in the

district with another chance to be seen and make connections.

The searchable online directory is open for businesses to sign up,

offering the opportunity to advertise their details including a map

location, contacts, website and social media links and a summary

of their business.

With almost 500 businesses already listing their details and more

joining every week, the directory is part of Council’s work to support

local businesses and encourage people to think local when looking

for goods and services, Community Services and Facilities group

manager Denise Kidd says.

As well as providing a free opportunity to promote to customers in the

district to customers the directory will help business to business links,

she says. “The directory is a great tool for finding local resources to

assist your business. As a smaller district we know businesses are

strengthened by looking at where they can complement each other

and by working together and the directory’s a good way to connect.”

For Reza Zarnekabi an internet search for a short study stint has turned into a new life.

Born in northwest Iran, Reza was working in a consulting engineers’ company when he decided he

wanted to continue his studies further with a PhD.

He jumped on the internet and found Lincoln University offering exactly what he wanted to study. In

April 2012, Reiza and his wife Leila made the move to New Zealand, where the native Turkish speakers

had to spend six months in Auckland to learn English before finally making the move to Christchurch.

Not planning to be here for long Reza took unpaid leave from his job in Iran.

Housing was tight in the years following the earthquakes and they had to stay in a hotel, before

securing a one bedroom flat in the city centre.

While studying Reza landed work at a consulting engineering company, similar to his job in Iran. Juggling

study and work proved tricky, so he eventually made the tough decision to terminate his study after two

years and has been working successfully and happily at the consultant engineering company since.

He and Leila have gained residency and built their own house in

Lincoln, where the country air feels much more like home.

The couple love New Zealand and its acceptance of different

cultures and diversity. They have travelled most of the South

Island and think it’s beautiful. They’ve made friends in the

Iranian community in Christchurch, as well as with tramping,

gaming and dinner groups.

They are unsure about what their future holds in New Zealand,

but for now they are happy; they have found a great community.

Arthur’s Pass Community Fête returns

The Arthur’s Pass Community Fête is coming back with an extra autumn fête held this weekend.

About 700 people attended the first community fête last year, held by the YMCA Arthur’s Pass Outdoor

Education Centre.

The organisers were supported by the Selwyn Community Fund, which provides funding to community

groups, including to hold events and activities that promote Selwyn’s uniqueness, help build the

community and encourage visitors to the district.

Arthur's Pass Outdoor Education Centre Manager Gemma Murphy says the funding was an important

part of being able to get such a good turn-out at the first fête.

“The funding Selwyn District Council generously contributed enabled us to advertise the event through

newspapers, posters and social media. As this was the first event of its kind here, we needed to

promote it far and wide,” Miss Murphy said.

The fête will include music, a bouncy castle, a raffle, local craft and second-hand clothing stalls, fun

activities for kids and light refreshments.

The Arthur’s Pass Outdoor Education Centre run

programmes focussed on teaching basic outdoor

skills and environmental education for young people to

discover what New Zealand has to offer and how they

can enjoy it safely.

Money raised will be put towards providing

experiences and opportunities for free, or at low cost,

and equipment such as rain jackets and tents for

children who have participation barriers.

Hororata set to have their race day

• By Jacob Page

HORORATA RACING Club

president Diane Chesmar truly

believes that many hands make

light work ahead of their annual

race meeting at Riccarton Park

on Saturday.

Mrs Chesmar is the first woman

to be president of the club in

its 136-year history, having taken

over the role this season, but said

it was the hard-working committee

members she works with

which makes the day possible.

“I really just consider myself

the conductor of an orchestra in

many ways,” she said.

Hororata’s annual meeting

has been at Riccarton since the

1980s. Mrs Chesmar said it was a

relationship that worked well.

West Melton 10 matches

to six after dominating the doubles

encounters.

Kirwee-Springston won seven

of the eight doubles and mixed

doubles fixtures to turn around

a 5-3 deficit after the singles

matches were completed.

West Melton had lost just once

all season, to Kirwee-Springston

on a countback of games played.

Saturday’s result was more definitive

as Kirwee-Springston’s mixed

doubles power shone through.

The Kirwee-Springston trio of

Sebastian On, Bevan Johns and

Heather Boomer went unbeaten

throughout their singles, doubles

and mixed doubles fixtures.

Sebastian’s third win of the day,

in the mixed doubles with Kerry

Noble secured the title.

West Melton’s Blake Cullen

Pavle Fillipovic, Juliette Ma,

Jade and Jane Brosnahan all won

their singles matches but they

were not able to hold-off the

fast-finishing Kirwee-Springston

team which won eight of the last

nine matches to secure victory.

Club president Diane Chesmar

popcorn or chicken skewers, miso

Speedway mate to be honoured at Ruapuna

SPORT

• By Allan Batt

TWO SELWYN speedway

drivers will honour a mate this

weekend at Ruapuna Speedway.

The recent death of Auckland

Speedway identity Bryce

Townsend will be marked with a

special tribute on Saturday night

with Lincoln’s Jeremy Webb and

Rolleston’s Kyle Glover both

eager to race in his memory.

Glover is one of the South

Island’s top TQ

midget racers

and like many

he was shocked

by Townsend’s

passing.

“Bryce had

Kyle Glover

been there, and

done that in the

speedway world

but he was never short of time to

assist any racer with a word of

encouragement and advice,” he

said.

“I travelled to the US with

him on a couple of his tours and

everyone knew him.

“In many ways he was the face

of New Zealand Speedway over

there.”

Webb said Townsend will

never be far from his thoughts.

“Bryce was instrumental

in getting me the drive for

MOTIVATED: Lincon’s Jeremy Webb will be in action this weekend to pay tribute to friend and mentor Bryce Townsend (right).

the Clausen-Marshall team at

this year’s Chilli Bowl.

“To be part of the world’s biggest

midget car show, was to me,

an impossible dream until Bryce

got involved.

“He could have recommended

any one of a number of top

Auckland drivers, but he backed

me. My crew and I will be forever

grateful.

“I’ve known him most of my

life and I looked up to him as a

person, mentor and racer.”

Two of Townsend’s close

friends and fellow Aucklanders

Jayden Worthington and Max

Guilford are making the trip

south to contest the Midget Mayhem

event.

Guilford, just a second year

midget car racer was being mentored

by Townsend, and earlier

this season capped off his rapid

progress by being selected to race

for the New Zealand Midget car

test team.

Townsend was a regular competitor

at Ruapuna throughout

his career, and once his racing

days were over he continued to

support the track and many of its

competitors.

Ruapuna club president Allan

Daly said that it was important

that Bryce’s contribution to the

sport were recognised.

“He raced here as often as

he could, and then went on to

encouraging drivers to travel

south to support our track. He

was also a highly recognised

crew chief and freely passed on

help.”

The meeting will also feature

the annual Quake City

Sprintcar Stampede and over

a dozen drivers have entered,

including Nelson’s Alicia

McLauchlan and Blenheim racer

Paddy North.

It will also be the first

appearance for the season at

Ruapuna of Hornby’s Matthew

Leversedge, who has been

campaigning at Auckland’s

Western Springs.

Leversedge’s clash with current

South Island champion Jamie

Duff is eagerly anticipated.

How is Covid-19 spread?

What is COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It’s caused by a type

of coronavirus. There are simple steps you can take to protect you and your family/whānau.

How is it spread?

COVID-19, like the flu, can be spread from person to person. When a person who

has COVID-19 coughs, sneezes or talks, they may spread droplets containing the virus

a short distance, which quickly settle on surrounding surfaces.

You may get infected by the virus if you touch those surfaces or objects and then

touch your mouth, nose or eyes.

That’s why it’s really important to use good hygiene, regularly wash and thoroughly

dry your hands, and use good cough etiquette.

What can I do to stop COVID-19 spreading?

•Cough or sneeze into your elbow or by covering your mouth and nose with tissues.

•Put used tissues in the bin or a bag immediately.

•Wash your hands with soap and water often (for at least 20 seconds).

•Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

•Don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean.

•Avoid personal contact, such as kissing, sharing cups or food with sick people.

•Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects, such as doorknobs.

•Stay home if you feel unwell and call Healthline on 0800 358 5453.

Gardening

Plant now for autumn vegetables

• By Henri Ham

AFTER THE dry, hot summer

most of us have had, it feels

a little strange writing about

autumn and winter vege just yet.

But as many a gardener knows,

preparation is the key to the

success of any vege patch. So, if

you want to enjoy plenty of vege

from your garden in the cooler

months, you really need to get

started now.

First start by clearing out

any old plants that have passed

their time. I’ll be pulling out old

tomato stalks, dried up courgette

plants and many herbs that have

gone to seed.

Give your soil a good turning

over and remove any clumpy

roots and debris. Try to break

down the larger lumps in the soil

that your plants may struggle to

grow roots through. Top up with

compost, sheep pallets, top soil

and a give a good feed of general

fertiliser.

For plants, I’m going to focus

on my greens as they will go well

in autumn and right now I feel

like greens will help balance out

my ‘indulgent’ summer. These

include cauliflower, silverbeet,

cabbage and broccoli.

If you want a variation on plain

broccoli, try broccoflower. It has

a milder and slightly sweeter

taste to cauliflower – and looks

like a lime green cauliflower. Or

Italian (Romanesco) broccoli,

with its light green clusters of

heads that resemble sea coral.

The unusual tip of each spear

is conical rather than round,

looking like the ‘royal’ version.

It tastes more like true broccoli,

but at its very best!

Also try the newest (and

trendiest) member of the broccoli

family, broccolini (tasty

stems); a hybrid between broccoli

and Chinese broccoli. It’s

slightly sweeter than normal

broccoli. You can compare its

GROWTH:

Brassicas

should be

planted

35-50cm

apart.

taste to asparagus, and it’s ideal

for stir-fries.

And now to plant your broccoli.

Firstly, they like a freedraining

and sunny spot, and to

be planted in a new place each

year. This crop rotation will

ensure premium growth and

quality. When you’ve found your

perfect place to plant, dig holes

roughly twice the size of the

seedling, around 35-50cm apart.

Place inside and firmly press the

soil down with your hands.

These brassicas will all take

a while to mature, so consider

popping in faster growing plants

between each seedling – this is

called companion planting. Pak

choy, beetroot, radish, spring

onions and spinach are all fast

growing veges you can poke in

between your larger brassicas,

and harvest before the brassicas

are ready.

Lastly, apply mulch. This will

help keep the weeds down and

retain moisture. Pea straw and

bark mulch are popular choices,

but pine needles, wet newspaper

strips and even wool packing

from your ‘My Food Bag’ will do

the trick.

When it comes to harvesting

your broccoli heads, cut them off

diagonally. This will encourage

new mini-heads to grow, giving

you a long cropping season. And,

if you suddenly find all your

broccoli is ready at once and you

don’t quite have the stomach

for it, remember it freezes really

well.

Simply place in a snap lock

bag, and it will keep nicely for a

few months.

Taking a feng shui

perspective

Everyone’s living space is

different so there’s no one-size-fitsall

approach to the philosophy of

feng shui, whether you reside in a

small apartment or a large home.

Feng shui is a practice that by

looking at our built environments

we can live in harmony with the

principles of the natural world.

Feng means “wind” and shui

translates to “water” in Chinese.

This comes from an ancient poem

and reflects upon how human life

can be ideal if we connect and

live in flow with the environment

around us.

Feng shui can help you make

the most of your living space

by harmonising its energy flow.

Feng shui splits the world into

five elements: wood (creativity

and growth); fire (leadership

and boldness); earth (strength

and stability); metal (focus and

order) and water (emotion and

inspiration). Working to balance

these elements can help their

corresponding traits to thrive in

your life.

There’s a lot more to feng shui

but these are some basic ideas.

Use your front door

Many people live in homes where

they drive up into the garage and

use the back door to get in. While

this is very convenient, from a feng

shui perspective this may limit

good energy and opportunities in

your life because again, the entry

door represents how chi energy

enters your home and life.

Space above the kitchen

cabinets

Take a look at your kitchen

cabinets and check to see if there

is space above them. This space

can attract dust and stagnant

energy. The chi gets stuck there

and encourages dead energy which

may hold you back in your life.

If there is a space, some lighting,

green plants (live or very realistic

looking) or beautiful and loved

objects in this location. These

objects bring life to this area and

transforms the energy.

Cover up the TV in your

bedroom

Most of us have televisions in our

bedroom. The active energy of the

television as well as the electronic

aspect of it may be disruptive to the

type of calming quiet energy more

conducive to sleep and bedrooms

so one idea is to cover up the TV.

Clean all windows

Your home’s windows symbolise

your eyes to the world. We want

to be able to see and experience

everything that the universe has to

offer us. Find some old newspaper,

grab a bottle of vinegar and water

and clean away the grime.

This is a very simple introduction

to feng shui but there is plenty

more information online if you

are keen to find out how you can

embrace this philosophy within

your own home.

Choosing carpet

made easier

Being able to select a new carpet is

so much easier when you can see the

samples at home and how they look under

different lights or alongside your colour

scheme and furniture.

Recarpeting your home is certainly a

big undertaking in terms of updating the

look of your much-loved home and, with

so many different ranges in both carpet

and hard flooring, making a choice can be

difficult.

Harrisons Carpet has a team of mobile

carpet retailers who are available seven

days a week to bring a wide range of

flooring options straight to your door so

you do not have to travel to a showroom

and return samples once you have

finished.

Amanda Wilson has owned and

operated Harrisons Carpet Canterbury

Country, including the Selwyn district, for

five years. The combination of the quality

flooring products Harrisons supplies

and a genuine interest in her clients, has

Amanda loving what she does.

“It’s a real privilege to be invited into

people’s homes,” she says, “and I’m grateful

for the trust they put in me”.

Initial consultations are done over the

phone or online at the Harrisons website

(www.harrisonscarpet.co.nz) and a

mutually convenient time is scheduled for

Amanda to meet you at your home.

With laser technology and smart

devices, measuring and quoting is a

simple, quick process, done on the spot.

Carpet is chosen, arrangements are

made to move furniture – you can

do it yourself or Harrisons offer a

competitively priced service – and the

installation takes place.

“This is usually carried out over no

more than one or two days, as quickly

and conveniently as possible with fully

qualified, professional installers,” says

Amanda.

As part of her service, she is always

available to offer advice and tips or

suggestions about décor and you have the

satisfaction of knowing you are buying

from a trustworthy business owner.

Saving time, money and water

on your irrigation needs

Now the hot days of summer are

almost over, it is a great time to think

about upgrading your watering system

to some of the latest cost effective and

easy to use automated options, according

to Phil Hudson from locally owned

company Freeman Irrigation.

The latest technology comes into play

with automated WiFi – the sprinklers can

be connected to weather station forecasts

so if rain is expected the amount of water

is reduced.

Automatic systems save water by

irrigation at the correct time of day,

minimising evaporation.

Being able to operate your system

remotely also means you can adjust the

flow at any time to suit the conditions,

saving water and money and a built-in

water system not only adds value to your

property but they also work while you

are way on holiday.

“We have a range of smartphone

controllers and rain sensors that can be

fitted to most systems, allowing to have

easy control from anywhere. If you want

to save money and conserve water a good

rain sensor is an affordable solution,” says

Phil.

Heading into the cooler months is also

a great time for maintenance on your

irrigation systems after the hot summer.

Some of the basic problems include

clogged sprinklers; leaking sprinklers and

valves; obstructed sprinklers; leaking/

blocked solenoid valves; overspray onto

footpaths, streets or buildings; design

problems; missing nozzles or pipe leaks

and breaks.

Freeman Irrigation has a range of

irrigation services, not just for residential

homes but also parks, golf courses,

horticultural and viticultural properties,

sub-divisions and commercial properties.

Beautiful gardens create appeal

A beautifully landscaped lawn and

garden create the finishing touches

to the curb appeal of every home and

property.

Figuring out what landscape

components you want in your outdoor

area can be difficult, particularly

when there are so many options but

often a fresh eye can give you a new

perspective.

Engaging an expert like Sharon from

Sharon Crofts Landscape Design can

make a huge difference to the look of

your outdoor area, resulting in a garden

that exudes that professional touch.

Sharon covers all aspects of landscape

design from the initial site consultation

to preparing design concepts and

planting proposals, making it easy

for the homeowners to implement

themselves if that want to. If not Sharon

Crofts Landscape Design has a team of

experienced and professional contracts

who will complete the work to exacting

standards.

They work throughout Canterbury

including residential properties,

rural and lifestyle blocks and new

subdivisions, particularly in the Selwyn

area.

Sharon enjoys working collaboratively

with her clients and transforming initial

plans into reality within budget and on

time. Her many years of experience also

help when it comes to what planting

works in the Canterbury climate and

with local soils.

With the advent of cooler weather

it is a good time to up keep lawn

maintenance such as topdressing and

fertilising to boost new growth.

If you are thinking of creating a new

area within your garden new plants will

make better progress now that the hot

summer months are over and, if planted

now, they will make some good growth

during autumn.

It is also a good time to think about

plants that may not be in the right

position. They could be wrenched in

autumn (dug around) and uplifted

during the winter months.

“Of course not all plants are keen on

this so it is best to get some professional

advice on which plants may or may not

easily shift,” says Sharon.

Whether your landscape project is

small or large give Sharon a call at

Meat exports hit record high,

but coronavirus looms

Export prices for meat achieved their

highest-ever level in the December 2019

quarter, according to Stats NZ.

“Meat export prices have risen for three

quarters in a row, on the back of strong

demand towards the end of last year,” says

Stats NZ business prices manager Bryan

Downes said.

Meat volumes rose 3.2%, and values rose

12% in the December 2019 quarter.

“Over the year, meat prices also rose,

with both beef and lamb prices up,” says

Downes.

The impact of coronavirus on New

Zealand’s export prices is yet to be

announced by Stats NZ.

“Exports of meat and logs increased

towards the end of 2019, before the

outbreak of coronavirus in China,” says

Downes. China is New Zealand’s biggest

trading partner.

“Any impact of the coronavirus on

prices for our goods and services, mainly

because of disruptions to global trade,

could be reflected in the March 2020

quarter,” says Downes.

Wood export prices also rose in the

December 2019 quarter, up 8.2%, partly

recovering from falls in the previous two

quarters.

Illustration: Graph from Stats NZ

Partly offsetting the rise in meat and

wood export prices was a 2.4% fall in

dairy prices.

While volumes were up 14%, the value

of dairy exports rose by only 11%.

The fall in dairy prices was driven by

an 11% fall in butter prices in the latest

quarter.

However, butter prices remain at

historically high levels following strong

price increases a few years ago. Overall,

export prices rose 3.0% in the December

2019 quarter.

Wood export prices also rose in the

quarters.

Sedan boosts Toyota Corolla load space

TOYOTA NEW Zealand is

pulling no punches marketing its

Corolla range.

Not only are there a handful of

new variants within the range -

bearing in mind the latest generation

series landed here just over

two years ago - but a fresh pricing

structure makes for value-packed

buying across sedan, hatchback

and wagon options.

I recently evaluated the new

wagon and remarked on its

value at just below $30k; another

newcomer is the SX sedan and it

is the subject of this evaluation. It

is also value at $32,990, and to be

honest if I was a buyer I couldn’t

choose between the two, I particularly

like wagons and sedans,

and both have special appeal,

although the sedan with its 2-litre

engine against 1.8-litre for the

wagon may just tip the balance.

And SX grade is certainly for

me, it translates to cloth interior

trim, but it also has plenty of other

goodies to keep me happy in the

cabin such as sat nav, paddle shifters,

and radar cruise control. The

latter is part of the Toyota Sense

suite of safety kit that is fitted

throughout the Corolla range and

it is state-of-the-art, easily earning

a five-star Australasian New Car

Assessment Program rating.

A totally new platform was developed

for the latest generation

Corolla, and it formed the basis

for the extensive array of body

styles that all sit on a complex

fully independent suspension system.

This draws me to the range,

I like the idea of all four corners

working in their own way and

with the spring and damper rates

set to a medium compromise the

Corolla sedan feels sporty and

well attached to the road.

In saying that, the SX variant

rides on 205/55 x 16in Dunlop

rubber, there’s nothing wrong

with the handling and the tyres

are very quiet, but if I was a

buyer I think I’d opt for an 18in

wheel which is standard on other

Corolla models, they would offer

a lot more presence.

There are no surprises under

the bonnet, well there are in some

ways, the new sedan is available

as a hybrid as well.

However, the SX is solely reliant

on petrol power, its 2-litre engine

is now well-established into the

Corolla hatch and sedan, and it

is a no-nonsense unit with power

figures of 125kW and 200Nm, the

outputs realised at 6600rpm and

4100rpm respectively.

While the latter would appear

to make the engine peaky, that’s

not the case, the engine is happy

to work low down, and with its

TOYOTA COROLLA SEDAN: Huge boot space.

pairing to a continuously variable

transmission the engine finds its

happy place through the midrange.

Toyota have worked hard

with the CVT system, it now works

almost like a traditional torque

converter automatic with physical

gears, it is a 10-step system and can

be locked into any pre-set step by

sequentially using the main gearshift

lever or paddles.

As an aside, there’s also a sport

mode which heightens engine

urgency and adjusts the way the

ratio works so that acceleration

can be ushered in just that little

bit quicker. Toyota claims a 9.2sec

standstill to 100km/h time, while

by my stopwatch a 5.4sec 80km/h

to 120km/h overtaking time can

be achieved.

These figures relate to brisk

motoring, the beauty of a 2-litre

engine is that it’s not working

hard, the sedan weighs in at

around 1300kg, which means a

healthy power-to-weight ratio.

That also means the engine isn’t

working hard for the majority

of the time and that translates

to respectable fuel usage figures.

Toyota also claims a six-litre per

100km combined cycle average.

That correlates well with the fuel

usage display within the car, it

was constantly listing around

7.1l/100km with 5l/100km showing

instantaneously at 100km/h.

What makes the fuel usage figures

so appealing is that I evaluated

the Corolla sedan on one of

the hottest days of Christchurch’s

summer. Normally, I never use air

conditioning, but with temperatures

hovering around 35 deg C I

had the air on most of the time.

Combining good performance

and economy isn’t achieved easily,

but given the Corolla’s long

history that’s something Toyota

has been able to work on over the

years, it is wonderfully efficient,

yet all models feel feisty and

there’s just that element of sporty

appeal that will lure those who

like to push along a bit when the

• Price – Toyota Corolla SX

sedan, $32,990

200Nm, continuously

variable automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9.2sec

• Fuel usage – 6l/100km

open road beckons.

It’s also nice to know that when

the long straights run out there

is a chassis underneath that is

capable of dealing with the twists

and turns without affecting the

level of comfort we have come to

expect from one of the automotive

world’s most successful

nameplates.

For the record, Toyota lists the

sedan’s boot space with a load capacity

of 470-litres, that compares

to 294-litres for the hatch and

390-litres for the wagon. Interesting

figures which will certainly

get those who are looking for

load space scratching their heads.

Toyota is pushing hard the

hybrid message, however, there’s

still a lot of life left in petrol only

engines only. The Corolla in all

forms is a fuel miser and I’d find

it a difficult choice to choose

between either.

However, the SX sedan

certainly captures my attention

for its honesty and all round

appeal.

WHALAN AND PARTNERS LTD, BAYLEYS, LICENSED REAA 2008

Make small fixes

Inspect your home with a buyer’s eyes,

and correct the flaws that are most

egregious (if affordable) or can be

relatively easily fixed—from repairing

cracks in the walkways to repainting

dingy walls or oiling creaky hinges.

Select the best real estate agent

For a commission, an agent will take care

of many details you may not want to be

bothered with (placing ads, fielding calls,

making signs, etc.) and bring experience

to the table. To find a good one, ask

friends and relatives, then interview

several candidates.

Set a price

A real estate agent will give you a market

analysis free of charge or commitment.

Ask a few to get a broader picture of the

market. Check out

comparable listings

yourself in the real

estate section of

your newspaper or

on websites. Then

decide whether you

want a quick, easy

sale or the highest

possible price.

Clean & declutter

Weed out excess

furniture,

knicknacks, and

“stuff ”—toss it,

donate it, give

it away, sell it at a garage sale, or put

it into storage—so the house seems

more spacious and buyers can imagine

themselves in it.

Stay vigiliant about maintenance

Keep the lawn mowed, shrubs trimmed,

gardens weeded, rooms spotless and

clutter-free.

Ready your home for open days

Hide pocketable valuables, display fresh

flowers or bowls of fruit, bake a batch of

cookies for the homey smell, open the

drapes, keep pets out of sight.

Decide whether to do your own

building inspection

It may save you time, especially with

older homes, to identify—and potentially

solve—problems your buyer’s inspection

will discover later.

Confident at Auctions

Looking confident may be all you need to be the last

bidder standing when the hammer goes down.

Does your blood pressure go sky-high at

the sight of an auction room? Chances are

some of your fellow bidders are doing all

in their power to psych you out and win

the bidding.

Securing a property isn’t just about

having the most money. Sometimes the

winning bidder is the one with the most

confidence.

They use psychology to convince

opposing bidders to give up, hoping to

make everyone else think they’ve got more

to spend than anyone else in the room.

Too often buyers have preconceived

ideas about how the auction will unfold

and have their confidence knocked when it

doesn’t go their way.

Two can play at that game. You just need

to get your strategy right.

Looking confident may be all you need

to be the last bidder standing when the

hammer goes down.

To be that person you need to do some

preparation. Make sure you go to a few

auctions first to get used to them.

Come bidding day, park yourself on

the side at the front so that you can

see everyone in the room and, more

importantly, they can see you whether

they’re at the back of the front.

It gives you a vantage point and shows

the opposition you are bidding confidently

against them.

You are hoping that the other buyers

have a plan in place.

Often that’s to start low. So if you come

in with a relatively high first bid, you may

rattle them.

“The lower the open bid the more people

can afford to bid. So you could knock out

some of the opposition before they even

place a bid if you choose the right opener.

Don’t start at $500,000 for a house you

know is going to go for at least $800,000.

Put an opening bid of $785,000.

Immediately your opposition is going to

think it will go incredibly high and might

be unnerved.

Call each bid out confidently. “It shows

you are comfortable and in control.

The more confident you seem the more

people will think you have done it before.

It’s a really good idea to vary your

bidding increments.. If it’s going up by

$2000 bids and it’s below your limit don’t

be afraid to put a $10,000 bid in..

Your competition is always thinking

about that next $2000 bid and if you

change the rhythm from $2000 to $10,000

you show you have the money and it

changes where their next bid has to be.

Instead of $4000 more it is $12,000 more.

Finally, if you’re a couple, make sure

you’ve discussed every aspect of the

auction before you get there. As soon

as you start looking at each other or

conferring, the opposition will think

you’re weak.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

New showhomes

opening in Selwyn

The district’s showhome scene is changing. Still

concentrated around Lincoln or Rolleston, there are

showhome villages in new residential housing estates

and a few standalone showhomes.

Some showhomes double as a base for a building

company. Most showcase their workmanship and

type of homes they specialise in. All offer ideas on

building products and trends.

When viewing a showhome, allocate time. It will

take more than one afternoon to view all in the

district. You might make a quick visit to each, noting

those to revisit for a longer perusal.

All but one showhome in Lincoln, is situated in the

newer part of Te Whāriki’s Southfield Drive. Here

seven building companies offer a total of eight homes

to view, of varying size, design and level of fittings

and features. Three more showhomes can be found

in Lincoln’s Flemington, with two due to close soon.

If looking to build at the higher end of the market,

the Te Whāriki showhomes of Faye Homes and

Hallmark Homes, along with Homes by Maxim in

Flemington and R&B Builders’ showhome in The

Borough, Rolleston should top your list. Many other

showhomes also offer innovative ideas for how style

can be added to a new home.

It is changing of the guard for showhomes in

Rolleston. Faringdon’s East Maddisons Road village

is slowly winding down with a number now closed.

The remaining showhomes are worth a view.

New showhomes are under construction or

have opened in The Borough, Faringdon’s latest

development, with more to open in the next month

or so. A total of 14 showhomes are to be constructed

there. A smaller showhome village is being

established at Acland Park.

Along the Springston Rolleston Road, Today

Homes’ showhome is open every afternoon. BT

Builders and Generation Homes have showhomes at

the entrance to Branthwaite on the Lincoln Rolleston

Road and there are seven showhomes open in

Falcons Landing with an eighth due to open in June.

Two more standalone showhomes can be found in

Rolleston: Freedom Built on Goulds Road (open

Monday to Thursday or by appointment) and Full

Circle Homes at 12 Lignite Drive in Stonebrook,

(open for viewing by appointment).

While most showhomes are open 12noon-4pm

from Wednesday to Sunday, the opening hours for

others are different. Details can usually be found

on a company’s website. Most are happy to open by

appointment.

To make the most of your showhome viewing,

keep an open mind when visiting each home. On

entering, ask the consultant for its details: the size of

the home (this influences how spacious each room

will look), what is standard within the home and

additional features which will cost more, and the

price to build that particular home. Take notes or

photos of fittings and features you like, being realistic

about your wish list and bearing in mind your

budget as this will influence what can ultimately be

incorporated into your new home.
