Deadly intersections to be made safer<br />

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

Rds in a bid to improve safety.<br />

• By Devon Bolger<br />

TWO DEADLY<br />

intersections will get<br />

roundabouts in a bid to<br />

make them safer.<br />

Dual-lane roundabouts<br />

have been approved<br />

by the district<br />

Peter Hunter<br />

council<br />

for the intersections<br />

of Springs and Marshs<br />

Rds and Shands and<br />

Blakes Rds.<br />

They are expected to<br />

be substantially complete<br />

by 2021.<br />

There have been two fatal<br />

crashes, one serious, and nine<br />

minor at the intersection since<br />

2011. Two people died in a<br />

crash there in February 20<strong>18</strong>.<br />

There has also been one<br />

serious crash and two non-injury<br />

crashes at the intersection.<br />

Prebbleton Community<br />

Association chairman Peter<br />

Hunter said: “I absolutely<br />

support traffic safety<br />

improvements, especially<br />

around Prebbleton as this<br />

area continues to grow.”<br />

Flood danger<br />

to majority<br />

of district<br />

properties<br />

• By Devon Bolger<br />

JUST OVER 23,000 properties in<br />

the district could be affected by<br />

a major flood in the future a new<br />

report has found.<br />

Computer-modelling has found<br />

23,500 properties are affected in<br />

some way by flood hazard which<br />

means there are areas on their<br />

property that might be at least<br />

5cm under water if a one-in-200-<br />

year flood occurs.<br />

Mayor Sam Broughton said it is<br />

the majority of properties in the<br />

district.<br />

“What surprised me the most<br />

was the extensiveness of it. This is<br />

data that we have received from Environment<br />

Canterbury and it isn’t<br />

just picking one or two properties<br />

but looking at flooding across the<br />

district,” Mr Broughton said.<br />

“It is too early to tell if the new<br />

information will lead to further<br />

flood protection work in the<br />

district.”<br />

Councillor Sophie McInnes said<br />

“People shouldn’t panic. The data<br />

is based on computer-modelling<br />

that is happening nationwide.<br />

This is not just something that is<br />

happening in <strong>Selwyn</strong>.”<br />

The district council, with the help<br />

of ECan, carried out computerbased<br />

flood modelling to predict<br />

the extent and depth of flooding<br />

that could happen during a onein-200<br />

year flood. • Turn to page 4<br />

ROUNDABOUTS for two of the district’s<br />

trickiest and dangerous intersections are<br />

long overdue.<br />

On page 1 today, we report the district<br />

council has finally approved roundabouts<br />

for the Springs/Marshs and Shands/Blakes<br />

intersections.<br />

They can be nightmares to get across and while dropping the<br />

speed limits on Springs and Shands has made it less treacherous,<br />

it is not by much.<br />

Many frustrated drivers trying to get across Marshs and<br />

Blakes, or turning right into Springs and Shands, will put the<br />

foot down to beat oncoming vehicles.<br />

The roundabouts won’t be in place until mid next year, but at<br />

least they are going in.<br />

Also on page 1, not such good news on flooding risks in the<br />

district. A snapshot of the world we live in.<br />

Lincoln University cows used<br />

for ‘cruel and barbaric’ research<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

HOLES HAVE been cut into<br />

the sides of cows as part of<br />

an experiment at a Lincoln<br />

University research facility.<br />

An animal rights group has<br />

called the procedure, “cruel,<br />

insensitive and barbaric.”<br />

The procedure is called fistulating<br />

which involves cutting a 15cm<br />

hole into the side of a cow to gain<br />

direct access to their stomachs.<br />

A permanent plastic ring is<br />

fitted into the hole with a lid on<br />

it, so researchers can put their<br />

arms straight<br />

inside a cow’s<br />

stomach, to<br />

allow contents<br />

to be removed<br />

or chemicals directly<br />

inserted.<br />

Tara Jackson<br />

A Lincoln<br />

University<br />

spokesperson<br />

said fistulated cows were used for<br />

research into rumen digestibility.<br />

“Any research carried out by<br />

Lincoln University involving<br />

animals must be approved by<br />

the Lincoln University Animal<br />

Ethics Committee and meet the<br />

standards of the University’s<br />

Code of Ethical Conduct for the<br />

Use of Animals and the Animal<br />

PERMANENT: A fistulated cow pictured at a Lincoln University<br />

facility in 2008.<br />

Welfare Act 1999,” the spokesperson<br />

said.<br />

“The LUAEC ensures that all<br />

research, testing and teaching by<br />

Lincoln University involving animals<br />

is conducted according to the<br />

CEC and Animal Welfare Act.”<br />

Animal rights group New<br />

Zealand Anti-Vivisection Society<br />

has strongly condemned the<br />

procedure, saying cows can still<br />

suffer from the intrusive surgery<br />

up to 11 days after the surgery.<br />

Executive director Tara Jackson<br />

said the experiments, the<br />

most “gruesome she’d ever seen”<br />

are being done to enhance the<br />

animal agriculture industry.<br />

“Can you imagine poking<br />

your arm inside living being’s<br />

stomach? Yet again, animals are<br />

treated as test subjects,” she said.<br />

“I think for a lot of Kiwis, it<br />

would be quite a shock to see the<br />

link between animal testing and<br />

animal agriculture sector. You<br />

definitely don’t pick up a carton<br />

of milk and think ‘oh was animal<br />

testing conducted for this product’<br />

so it is a whole other side of<br />

it that is quite hidden.<br />

“This procedure is the epitome<br />

of using cows as mere objects,<br />

like cars with gas tanks. Cows<br />

are intelligent and sensitive animals<br />

who do not deserve to be<br />

tortured for any reason.”<br />

The procedure is generally<br />

done to examine the contents of<br />

the cow’s stomach in the name<br />

of research to improve the cow’s<br />

milk production or decrease its<br />

methane production.<br />

NZAVS have uncovered a<br />

range of different research papers<br />

online which show the procedure<br />

has been used at Lincoln University<br />

as early as 1994.<br />

The Lincoln University spokesperson<br />

said there was no current<br />

research in progress.<br />

The cows involved in the<br />

research would will remain<br />

fistulated for the duration of<br />

their life.<br />

“The cows are retained for<br />

future research and remain<br />

under the supervision of the<br />

LUAEC and day-to-day care of<br />

professionally trained staff,” the<br />

spokesperson said.<br />

In Brief<br />

EVENTS CANCELLED<br />

Two events in the district<br />

have been postponed due to<br />

Covid-19. The Hororata Primary<br />

School’s 150th jubilee planned<br />

for this weekend has been put on<br />

hold. Committee chairman Rod<br />

Oliver said they hope to still hold<br />

the event within the year. The<br />

Lincoln Envirotown Trust’s Kim<br />

Hill Hop Topic event on <strong>March</strong><br />

26 has also been postponed. A<br />

new date will be announced in<br />

the future.<br />

MYSTERIOUS CAR FIRE<br />

Firefighters in Darfield were<br />

called after a blaze in a burntout<br />

vehicle mysteriously reignited<br />

on McLaughlins Rd on<br />

Sunday. Members of the Darfield<br />

Volunteer Fire Brigade were<br />

called to the fire at 2.33pm.<br />

A Fire and Emergency NZ<br />

spokeswoman said the car had<br />

initially caught fire on Saturday<br />

night but then somehow it had<br />

re-ignited. She said the car had<br />

no registration number and was<br />

likely dumped in the area. While<br />

the fire may have re-ignited by<br />

itself, the spokeswoman said<br />

the cause is not yet known.<br />

Meanwhile, a fire engulfed an<br />

old hay shed in Sheffield in the<br />

early hours of Sunday morning.<br />

Fire crews from the Sheffield and<br />

Springfield stations were called<br />

to fight the blaze on West Coast<br />

Rd, Sheffield, about 12.56am.

More than 23,000<br />

Roundabouts approved<br />

for deadly intersections<br />

• From page 1<br />

The construction contract will<br />

now be tendered and procurement<br />

of detailed designs will<br />

A report presented at the<br />

meeting said: “Detailed design<br />

work needs to be advanced<br />

without further delay so the<br />

project can be substantially<br />

completed by mid-2021,” it said.<br />

An NZTA spokeswoman said:<br />

“Higher traffic volumes at the intersection<br />

as part of the construction<br />

of the Southern Motorway<br />

is leading to an increase in safety<br />

issues, particularly for traffic<br />

turning out of Marshs Rd.”<br />

The work on the two roundabouts<br />

is expected to cost $9.3<br />

million with 75 per cent of that<br />

The district council and<br />

Christchurch City Council will<br />

split the remaining 25 per cent<br />

for the Springs and Marshs Rds<br />

intersection.<br />

The district council will solely<br />

fund the remaining 25 per cent<br />

for the Shands and Blakes Rds<br />

intersection.<br />

In June last year, it was revealed<br />

the intersections did not qualify<br />

for funding due to shortfalls.<br />

The projects remained on<br />

the national land transport<br />

programme list and the district<br />

council was told the funding<br />

has been approved after further<br />

work was undertaken on<br />

evaluating them.<br />

properties in danger<br />

• From page 1<br />

District council group manager<br />

environmental and regulatory<br />

services Tim Harris said as a<br />

result of this, a much larger area<br />

of the district has now been<br />

identified as being susceptible to<br />

flooding.<br />

The main change the district<br />

council is proposing is that any<br />

new dwellings built on affected<br />

areas would be required to have a<br />

higher minimum floor height.<br />

“For the majority of properties,<br />

the increase is likely to be only a<br />

few centimetres and would only<br />

affect new projects. It also only for<br />

areas of a property that are at risk<br />

from flooding,” Mr Harris said.<br />

In the meantime, any new<br />

Land Information Memoranda<br />

reports for an affected property<br />

will contain a note indicating that<br />

the property may be susceptible<br />

to flooding and/or coastal erosion<br />

and/or inundation under certain<br />

circumstances.<br />

The district council has started<br />

informing landowners of the<br />

latest findings on flooding and<br />

coastal hazard risks, and how it is<br />

proposing to manage them in the<br />

DISCOVER: The majority of properties in the district have been<br />

A number of drop-in sessions<br />

will be held next week where residents<br />

can speak with a planner<br />

said it is mainly either side of the<br />

Submissions sought on bylaw<br />

which could include cats<br />

• By Devon Bolger<br />

RESIDENTS WILL get to<br />

have their say on whether<br />

cats should be controlled<br />

under a new bylaw.<br />

A report presented at a<br />

district council meeting<br />

last week recommended<br />

cats be excluded from the<br />

bylaw about the keeping of<br />

animals, other than dogs,<br />

in urban areas.<br />

But district councillors<br />

agreed to include them in<br />

the consultation document<br />

meaning people will get<br />

to make submissions on<br />

the options for addressing<br />

issues with cats.<br />

A draft bylaw will now<br />

be drawn up and sent to<br />

township committees<br />

in June or July. It<br />

will also include rules<br />

around the keeping of<br />

poultry and bees.<br />

The tabled report<br />

said: “Provisions<br />

relating to the<br />

de-sexing and<br />

microchipping of cats are<br />

problematic with issues.<br />

“These include the quantification<br />

of the perceived<br />

problems caused by cats,<br />

doubt that the provisions<br />

Jeff Bland<br />

in the bylaw will have any<br />

impact on the perceived<br />

problems caused by cats<br />

and a risk that the provisions<br />

will be found to be<br />

unreasonable,” it<br />

said.<br />

Councillor Jeff<br />

Bland said at the<br />

meeting: “My<br />

personal feeling is<br />

that we have to do<br />

something. Cats kill<br />

lizards, birds and<br />

all kinds of things and I<br />

think we need to have the<br />

courage to do something<br />

about it.”<br />

District councillors<br />

also agreed to support the<br />

drafting and implementation<br />

of national legislation<br />

to control cats as well as<br />

submitting to Environment<br />

Canterbury through<br />

its annual plan process to<br />

control feral cats in Canterbury.<br />

Said group manager<br />

environmental and<br />

regulatory services<br />

Tim Harris: “The huge<br />

population growth we’ve<br />

had in the district has<br />

also meant a big increase<br />

in pets and animals<br />

living in our towns so it’s<br />

a good time to start<br />

thinking about the issues<br />

that come with that.”<br />

Prebbleton grateful for<br />

0800 ACLAND<br />

Hornby’s support in fight against waste plant<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

and Devon Bolger<br />

PREBBLETON residents<br />

say they are grateful to have<br />

the support of the Hornby<br />

community.<br />

A group of Prebbleton and<br />

Hornby residents attended the<br />

Christchurch City Council meeting<br />

on Thursday – with many<br />

dressed in protective suits and<br />

masks.<br />

Said Prebbleton<br />

resident<br />

Diane White:<br />

“It was great to<br />

see them at the<br />

meeting. We<br />

Diane White<br />

have a lot of<br />

support from<br />

people outside of Prebbleton trying<br />

to raise awareness about it.<br />

It’s not just a Prebbleton issue.”<br />

Waste Management has applied<br />

to expand its current site<br />

and operate the toxic waste treatment<br />

plant at 305 Marshs Rd in<br />

South Hornby.<br />

In its resource consent application,<br />

it said the plant will<br />

treat and manage items, such as<br />

pesticides, acid, used tyres and<br />

other types of rubbish.<br />

In a fiery deputation to the city<br />

council, Greater Hornby Residents’<br />

Association treasurer Ross<br />

FIGHT: Prebbleton and Hornby residents inside the Christchurch<br />

City Council office on Thursday protesting against a plan to put a<br />

hazardous waste plant in their backyard ​<br />

Houliston called the consultation<br />

process over Waste Management’s<br />

application to operate a<br />

waste stabilisation and treatment<br />

facility a “dictatorship.”<br />

“You will notice I am dressed<br />

in black, this is normal when<br />

people are in mourning. The<br />

Waipuna area is in mourning<br />

because city council staff have<br />

shown a total lack of respect for<br />

this area by issuing consents to<br />

put this in here.<br />

“No public consultation was<br />

called and residents in our area<br />

weren’t consulted denying them<br />

their democratic right to speak<br />

out on whether locals wanted<br />

this or not,” Mr Houliston said.<br />

It followed a deputation on<br />

Thursday from Ms White on how<br />

the plant could impact the area.<br />

Resource consent was granted<br />

for the proposed plant by the city<br />

council in December 20<strong>18</strong>.<br />

Environment Canterbury also<br />

granted three consents for its<br />

construction and discharge of<br />

stormwater in <strong>March</strong> 2019.<br />

The consent application currently<br />

with ECan is only for<br />

activities resulting in discharge<br />

to air.<br />

It ran a limited notified<br />

consent process, which meant<br />

only people within 500m of the<br />

proposed facility had a chance to<br />

have their say.<br />

“The GHRA therefore asks this<br />

consent be placed on hold and a<br />

full and open consultation process<br />

take place,” Mr Houliston<br />

said.<br />

The GHRA has also requested<br />

permanent full monitoring<br />

equipment be installed around<br />

the perimeter of waste management’s<br />

holding ground and a repeat<br />

of this equipment at 250m,<br />

500m and 750m.<br />

“This equipment should be applied<br />

at the applicant’s expense,<br />

include dust, smell monitors as<br />

well as noise control monitors,”<br />

Mr Houliston said.<br />

On top of his requests, on<br />

Thursday morning he filed a<br />

Local Government Official<br />

Information and Meetings Act<br />

request to the city council over<br />

the treatment plant.<br />

Mr Houliston has asked for<br />

a full list of chemicals, toxins,<br />

hazards and any other items to<br />

be kept on the site along with a<br />

full health and safety plan.<br />

THE ELLESMERE Big Band are<br />

going on tour for the first time.<br />

The group will perform in the<br />

Oamaru Harbour Street Jazz<br />

Said member Alison Donley:<br />

“This is a fabulous achievement<br />

for a local band and members<br />

are very excited.<br />

“This is the first time the band<br />

has gone on tour. We encourage<br />

you to support us, as well as the<br />

many other talented musicians<br />

and festival entertainment and<br />

stall holders who are making the<br />

journey to Oamaru,” she said.<br />

The Ellesmere Big Band plays<br />

at many community and public<br />

functions throughout the year<br />

and is based in Leeston.<br />

New members are welcome<br />

and they are currently on the<br />

look-out for trumpet and trombone<br />

players.<br />

“This is an event not to be<br />

missed so come along and be<br />

Eagle helicopter and community patrols<br />

Dean Harker<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Police<br />

Area response manager<br />

Senior Sergeant Dean<br />

Harker talks about police<br />

activity in the district and<br />

community patrols<br />

OVER THE last month, we have<br />

been busy with a number of<br />

incidents occurring across the<br />

district.<br />

A number of residents may have<br />

heard the police Eagle helicopter<br />

flying over the area in recent<br />

weeks. The helicopter has assisted<br />

local staff to apprehend offenders<br />

and hold them to account.<br />

One incident involved Eagle<br />

following three vehicles seen<br />

decamping from a dwelling<br />

burglary in <strong>Selwyn</strong>, the vehicles<br />

were tracked by the helicopter<br />

and local staff were able to stop<br />

the vehicles and arrest the occupants.<br />

It helped locate a vehicle that<br />

has previously been involved in a<br />

police pursuit that was abandoned<br />

due to the driving of the<br />

offender, this vehicle was followed<br />

by Eagle and local police<br />

were directed to where the vehicle<br />

and occupants were hiding.<br />

It also located a drunk driver<br />

travelling back from Akaroa<br />

where members of the public had<br />

called police concerned with the<br />

manner of driving.<br />

Another event that occurred in<br />

the district was a search warrant<br />

that was executed on a property<br />

occupied by a number of gang<br />

members, a large number of<br />

police staff were involved in the<br />

operation.<br />

Firearms, drugs and other<br />

property of interest were located<br />

and a number of people from the<br />

address are facing charges.<br />

In the last few weeks, I have<br />

been able to attend meetings<br />

with our local community<br />

patrols.<br />

One patrol is based in Darfield<br />

and looks after the Malvern area<br />

and the <strong>Selwyn</strong> patrol which<br />

covers Lincoln, Prebbleton, West<br />

Melton and other towns within<br />

our district.<br />

The community patrols are a<br />

volunteer organisation, working<br />

in co-operation with the New<br />

Zealand police.<br />

The patrols operate during the<br />

day and at night to help make<br />

our communities safe, the patrols<br />

act as the ‘eyes and ears” for<br />

the police and do not have any<br />

jurisdiction beyond that.<br />

All community patrol members<br />

undergo training and are<br />

assessed prior to joining the<br />

patrols, the patrols themselves<br />

are regularly provided with areas<br />

to patrol by the police.<br />

Members working on these<br />

patrols work on a roster and just<br />

help with the patrols whenever<br />

they can, for some people it may<br />

be as little as one evening or day<br />

per fortnight.<br />

Police rely heavily on community<br />

patrols throughout New<br />

Zealand and our local patrols do<br />

a fantastic job, both patrols are<br />

currently looking for new members<br />

or donations to help them<br />

function.<br />

If you are keen on joining up<br />

BUSY: The police<br />

Eagle helicopter has<br />

been used to track<br />

and help apprehend a<br />

number of offenders<br />

in the district over the<br />

last month.<br />

or have any other inquires contact<br />

your local police station and<br />

we can pass your details on.<br />

On our police district staffing<br />

front, we have just interviewed<br />

and recommended two new police<br />

staff to work in the district.<br />

The vacancies we had were in<br />

Leeston and also Darfield.<br />

These two new members will<br />

be profiled in the <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong><br />

when their appointments are<br />

confirmed.<br />

Just a friendly reminder<br />

to keep your vehicles and<br />

homes secured and report any<br />

suspicious behaviour to the<br />

police.<br />

BACKYARD CRITTERS<br />

Kenshin Hayashi<br />

Jacinda Riley ​<br />

Lincoln High School’s<br />

top academics named<br />

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in<br />

entomology (insects and other invertebrates).<br />

Each week he introduces a new species found in<br />

his backyard at Lincoln. His column aims to raise<br />

public awareness of biodiversity, the variety of<br />

living things around us. Check out the full list<br />

Magpie moth often<br />

mistaken for butterfly<br />

A STUNNING looking day-flying<br />

moth that is often mistaken for<br />

a butterfly is the magpie moth,<br />

Nyctemera annulata.<br />

This moth has black wings<br />

with white markings on the<br />

them. The thorax and abdomen<br />

are striped black and orange,<br />

with a wingspan of 35-45mm.<br />

The magpie moth is a New<br />

Zealand endemic and is found<br />

throughout both islands.<br />

Females lay yellow eggs on<br />

undersides of native and exotic<br />

Senecio species, ragwort and<br />

cineraria.<br />

Larvae, or woolly bears as they<br />

are often called, are very hairy,<br />

black and yellow in colour, and<br />

about 35mm when fully grown.<br />

The alkaloids used by plants<br />

as defence against herbivores are<br />

sequestered by larvae and utilised<br />

for their own defence against<br />

birds.<br />

The striped orange and black<br />

markings on both larvae and<br />

moths is a warning of their toxic<br />

bitter taste.<br />

Only the shining cuckoo is<br />

SELWYN TIMES<br />

The Council has started informing landowners of the latest findings on flooding and coastal<br />

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

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

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

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

and Regulatory Services.<br />

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

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

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

to flooding.<br />

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

important we let all affected landowners know of an existing natural hazard and how we propose<br />

to manage it in the new District Plan,” says Mr Harris.<br />

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

an increased minimum floor height for all new dwellings in affected areas. This proposed height<br />

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

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

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

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

erosion, or inundation under certain circumstances. The note will identify the latest technical<br />

information held by the Council.<br />

The Council is expecting to notify the Proposed District Plan for public consultation by the middle<br />

of this year.<br />

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

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

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

one of our public drop-in sessions.<br />

Tertiary Scholarships<br />

supporting success<br />

Scholarships from <strong>Selwyn</strong> District Council are helping <strong>Selwyn</strong> young<br />

people thrive beyond school.<br />

The Council awarded six tertiary education scholarships to year 12<br />

and 13 students at Darfield High School, Ellesmere College and<br />

Lincoln High School in 2019, for a broad range of tertiary education<br />

and training. This year, scholarships will also be offered to students<br />

at Rolleston College.<br />

The scholarships have been expanded to encourage diversity, reach<br />

and access.<br />

Students are encouraged to apply if they have achieved academic,<br />

sporting, cultural, or art successes at school, in clubs, or<br />

organisations, or overcome barriers or hardships.<br />

Mekaela Fleener, from Ellesmere College, received a scholarship to<br />

purchase a violin for her music studies at the University of Canterbury.<br />

“I think the scholarship is a really neat opportunity, especially for<br />

those who aren’t good at getting high marks, who might have merit<br />

in other places.”<br />

Molly Barker, from Lincoln High School, bought seven health science<br />

textbooks for her studies at Otago University with her scholarship.<br />

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

school. The external party can view candidates more equally.”<br />

Mayor Sam Broughton says the scholarships have a wider impact<br />

than just helping individuals.<br />

“There are many ambitious young people in <strong>Selwyn</strong> focussed<br />

on furthering their education to in turn contribute to their families<br />

and community.”<br />

Councillor Jenny Gallagher has been involved with the<br />

scholarships for over five years and says the scholarships ensure<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> youth have similar access to opportunities as those in<br />

bigger metropolitan areas.<br />

Councillor Shane Epiha was also on the selection panel and thought<br />

every individual was a worthy candidate.<br />

“It’s a fantastic opportunity for our rangatahi future leaders –<br />

some have amazing stories of perseverance overcoming<br />

challenging situations.”<br />

Directory helps local businesses<br />

connect<br />

The refreshed <strong>Selwyn</strong> Business Directory helps businesses in the<br />

district with another chance to be seen and make connections.<br />

The searchable online directory is open for businesses to sign up,<br />

offering the opportunity to advertise their details including a map<br />

location, contacts, website and social media links and a summary<br />

of their business.<br />

With almost 500 businesses already listing their details and more<br />

joining every week, the directory is part of Council’s work to support<br />

local businesses and encourage people to think local when looking<br />

for goods and services, Community Services and Facilities group<br />

manager Denise Kidd says.<br />

As well as providing a free opportunity to promote to customers in the<br />

district to customers the directory will help business to business links,<br />

she says. “The directory is a great tool for finding local resources to<br />

assist your business. As a smaller district we know businesses are<br />

strengthened by looking at where they can complement each other<br />

and by working together and the directory’s a good way to connect.”<br />

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

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

wanted to continue his studies further with a PhD.<br />

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

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

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

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

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

securing a one bedroom flat in the city centre.<br />

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

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

years and has been working successfully and happily at the consultant engineering company since.<br />

He and Leila have gained residency and built their own house in<br />

Lincoln, where the country air feels much more like home.<br />

The couple love New Zealand and its acceptance of different<br />

cultures and diversity. They have travelled most of the South<br />

Island and think it’s beautiful. They’ve made friends in the<br />

Iranian community in Christchurch, as well as with tramping,<br />

gaming and dinner groups.<br />

They are unsure about what their future holds in New Zealand,<br />

but for now they are happy; they have found a great community.<br />

Arthur’s Pass Community Fête returns<br />

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

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

Education Centre.<br />

The organisers were supported by the <strong>Selwyn</strong> Community Fund, which provides funding to community<br />

groups, including to hold events and activities that promote <strong>Selwyn</strong>’s uniqueness, help build the<br />

community and encourage visitors to the district.<br />

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

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

“The funding <strong>Selwyn</strong> District Council generously contributed enabled us to advertise the event through<br />

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

promote it far and wide,” Miss Murphy said.<br />

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

activities for kids and light refreshments.<br />

The Arthur’s Pass Outdoor Education Centre run<br />

programmes focussed on teaching basic outdoor<br />

skills and environmental education for young people to<br />

discover what New Zealand has to offer and how they<br />

can enjoy it safely.<br />

Money raised will be put towards providing<br />

experiences and opportunities for free, or at low cost,<br />

and equipment such as rain jackets and tents for<br />

children who have participation barriers.<br />

Hororata set to have their race day<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

HORORATA RACING Club<br />

president Diane Chesmar truly<br />

believes that many hands make<br />

light work ahead of their annual<br />

race meeting at Riccarton Park<br />

on Saturday.<br />

Mrs Chesmar is the first woman<br />

to be president of the club in<br />

its 136-year history, having taken<br />

over the role this season, but said<br />

it was the hard-working committee<br />

members she works with<br />

which makes the day possible.<br />

“I really just consider myself<br />

the conductor of an orchestra in<br />

many ways,” she said.<br />

Hororata’s annual meeting<br />

has been at Riccarton since the<br />

1980s. Mrs Chesmar said it was a<br />

relationship that worked well.<br />

KIRWEE-SPRINGSTON<br />

claimed the Canterbury Country<br />

tennis title on their home court<br />

on Saturday.<br />

They beat competition frontrunners<br />

West Melton 10 matches<br />

to six after dominating the doubles<br />

encounters.<br />

Kirwee-Springston won seven<br />

of the eight doubles and mixed<br />

doubles fixtures to turn around<br />

a 5-3 deficit after the singles<br />

matches were completed.<br />

West Melton had lost just once<br />

all season, to Kirwee-Springston<br />

on a countback of games played.<br />

Saturday’s result was more definitive<br />

as Kirwee-Springston’s mixed<br />

doubles power shone through.<br />

The Kirwee-Springston trio of<br />

Sebastian On, Bevan Johns and<br />

Heather Boomer went unbeaten<br />

throughout their singles, doubles<br />

and mixed doubles fixtures.<br />

Sebastian’s third win of the day,<br />

in the mixed doubles with Kerry<br />

Noble secured the title.<br />

West Melton’s Blake Cullen<br />

Pavle Fillipovic, Juliette Ma,<br />

Jade and Jane Brosnahan all won<br />

their singles matches but they<br />

were not able to hold-off the<br />

fast-finishing Kirwee-Springston<br />

team which won eight of the last<br />

nine matches to secure victory.<br />

Club president Diane Chesmar<br />

is the first woman to lead the<br />

“We have so many local people<br />

from <strong>Selwyn</strong> who attend. It’s the<br />

people that make the meeting.<br />

“We’ve been at Riccarton for<br />

batsman Rupert Young’s innings<br />

of 166 has ensured Canterbury<br />

Country will keep the Hawke<br />

Cup for the winter.<br />

Canterbury Country beat Otago<br />

Country thanks to a first innings<br />

triumph at Rangiora’s Mainpower<br />

Oval over the weekend.<br />

Canterbury Country lost the<br />

toss and were sent in to the field.<br />

They were able to restrict<br />

Otago Country to 257 all out<br />

with the retiring Shanan Stewart<br />

taking three wickets, along with<br />

Tim Gruijters,<br />

Stewart, the 37-year-old from<br />

Southbrook announced his<br />

that when you only race once a<br />

year you are always playing catch<br />

up.<br />

“This way, we still have our own<br />

meeting, we all get to enjoy it.”<br />

Mrs Chesmar was previously<br />

after a career which saw him<br />

play 244 games for Canterbury<br />

and represent New Zealand in<br />

four 50-over matches between<br />

SPORT<br />

Coast meetings.<br />

“We got involved along with<br />

her and it’s been a great time.”<br />

Young was the mainstay of the<br />

run-chase<br />

His 166 came off 298 balls and<br />

his vigil at the crease lasted more<br />

than six hours.<br />

He shared in two 108-run partnerships,<br />

first with Ben Hartland<br />

(38) and then captain Harry<br />

Chamberlain (56).<br />

The two teams shook hands<br />

Fast, healthy and enjoyable<br />

Healthy meals don’t have to take<br />

ages to prepare, and fast food and<br />

takeaways don’t have to be an<br />

unhealthy choice or the same old<br />

boring options. Enjoying a wide range<br />

of healthy fast food is catching on with<br />

customers at the new Asian-inspired<br />

eatery at 3 Vernon Drive in Lincoln.<br />

We Cook, which opened in January<br />

this year, is living up to the restaurant<br />

slogan: “We cook – you enjoy!” with fivestar<br />

reviews on their Facebook page.<br />

Customers have been impressed with<br />

the friendly service and rate the meals<br />

as healthy, tasty and great value for<br />

money with generous-sized portions.<br />

“The main meals come with a helping<br />

of steamed rice and your choice of<br />

vegetables on top. We have a choice<br />

of 12 different fresh salads and a range<br />

of sauces – and we help our customers<br />

to choose what goes best with their<br />

meal,” says We Cook owner, Lei Jiang.<br />

The restaurant is open for takeaway<br />

meals and dine-in options seven days<br />

a week from 11am to 8pm and until<br />

9pm on Thursday through to Saturday<br />

evenings. We Cook also offers free WiFi<br />

and has USB charging points beside<br />

all the dining tables around the walls.<br />

Meal options include a very popular<br />

Teriyaki chicken and a range of chicken<br />

dishes to get your mouth watering,<br />

including sweet and sour chicken, as<br />

well as Turkish and New Orleans ovenbaked<br />

chicken. They also have a tasty<br />

Japanese-inspired beef dish.<br />

The main meals come in two sizes,<br />

large and small. There are gluten-free<br />

options, and vegetarians can enjoy<br />

vegetable tempura with curry or<br />

vegetable tofu with curry.<br />

Affordable side dishes include chicken<br />

popcorn or chicken skewers, miso<br />

soup, a potato tower or egg sausage<br />

roll. They also have soft-serve icecream<br />

and snow ice and a tempting<br />

range of bubble teas.<br />

“We make everything fresh, but our<br />

food is quick to prepare. Walk-in<br />

takeaway orders can be ready in as<br />

little as five minutes.” says Lei.<br />

Speedway mate to be honoured at Ruapuna<br />

SPORT<br />

• By Allan Batt<br />

TWO SELWYN speedway<br />

drivers will honour a mate this<br />

weekend at Ruapuna Speedway.<br />

The recent death of Auckland<br />

Speedway identity Bryce<br />

Townsend will be marked with a<br />

special tribute on Saturday night<br />

with Lincoln’s Jeremy Webb and<br />

Rolleston’s Kyle Glover both<br />

eager to race in his memory.<br />

Glover is one of the South<br />

Island’s top TQ<br />

midget racers<br />

and like many<br />

he was shocked<br />

by Townsend’s<br />

passing.<br />

“Bryce had<br />

Kyle Glover<br />

been there, and<br />

done that in the<br />

speedway world<br />

but he was never short of time to<br />

assist any racer with a word of<br />

encouragement and advice,” he<br />

said.<br />

“I travelled to the US with<br />

him on a couple of his tours and<br />

everyone knew him.<br />

“In many ways he was the face<br />

of New Zealand Speedway over<br />

there.”<br />

Webb said Townsend will<br />

never be far from his thoughts.<br />

“Bryce was instrumental<br />

in getting me the drive for<br />

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

the Clausen-Marshall team at<br />

this year’s Chilli Bowl.<br />

“To be part of the world’s biggest<br />

midget car show, was to me,<br />

an impossible dream until Bryce<br />

got involved.<br />

“He could have recommended<br />

any one of a number of top<br />

Auckland drivers, but he backed<br />

me. My crew and I will be forever<br />

grateful.<br />

“I’ve known him most of my<br />

life and I looked up to him as a<br />

person, mentor and racer.”<br />

Two of Townsend’s close<br />

friends and fellow Aucklanders<br />

Jayden Worthington and Max<br />

Guilford are making the trip<br />

south to contest the Midget Mayhem<br />

event.<br />

Guilford, just a second year<br />

midget car racer was being mentored<br />

by Townsend, and earlier<br />

this season capped off his rapid<br />

progress by being selected to race<br />

for the New Zealand Midget car<br />

test team.<br />

Townsend was a regular competitor<br />

at Ruapuna throughout<br />

his career, and once his racing<br />

days were over he continued to<br />

support the track and many of its<br />

competitors.<br />

Ruapuna club president Allan<br />

Daly said that it was important<br />

that Bryce’s contribution to the<br />

sport were recognised.<br />

“He raced here as often as<br />

he could, and then went on to<br />

encouraging drivers to travel<br />

south to support our track. He<br />

was also a highly recognised<br />

crew chief and freely passed on<br />

help.”<br />

The meeting will also feature<br />

the annual Quake City<br />

Sprintcar Stampede and over<br />

a dozen drivers have entered,<br />

including Nelson’s Alicia<br />

McLauchlan and Blenheim racer<br />

Paddy North.<br />

It will also be the first<br />

appearance for the season at<br />

Ruapuna of Hornby’s Matthew<br />

Leversedge, who has been<br />

campaigning at Auckland’s<br />

Western Springs.<br />

Leversedge’s clash with current<br />

South Island champion Jamie<br />

Duff is eagerly anticipated.<br />

COVID-19<br />

Coronavirus<br />

How is Covid-19 spread?<br />

What is COVID-19?<br />

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

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

How is it spread?<br />

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

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

a short distance, which quickly settle on surrounding surfaces.<br />

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

touch your mouth, nose or eyes.<br />

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

dry your hands, and use good cough etiquette.<br />

What can I do to stop COVID-19 spreading?<br />

•Cough or sneeze into your elbow or by covering your mouth and nose with tissues.<br />

•Put used tissues in the bin or a bag immediately.<br />

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

•Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell.<br />

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

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

•Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects, such as doorknobs.<br />

•Stay home if you feel unwell and call Healthline on 0800 358 5453.<br />

Gardening<br />

Plant now for autumn vegetables<br />

• By Henri Ham<br />

AFTER THE dry, hot summer<br />

most of us have had, it feels<br />

a little strange writing about<br />

autumn and winter vege just yet.<br />

But as many a gardener knows,<br />

preparation is the key to the<br />

success of any vege patch. So, if<br />

you want to enjoy plenty of vege<br />

from your garden in the cooler<br />

months, you really need to get<br />

started now.<br />

First start by clearing out<br />

any old plants that have passed<br />

their time. I’ll be pulling out old<br />

tomato stalks, dried up courgette<br />

plants and many herbs that have<br />

gone to seed.<br />

Give your soil a good turning<br />

over and remove any clumpy<br />

roots and debris. Try to break<br />

down the larger lumps in the soil<br />

that your plants may struggle to<br />

grow roots through. Top up with<br />

compost, sheep pallets, top soil<br />

and a give a good feed of general<br />

fertiliser.<br />

For plants, I’m going to focus<br />

on my greens as they will go well<br />

in autumn and right now I feel<br />

like greens will help balance out<br />

my ‘indulgent’ summer. These<br />

include cauliflower, silverbeet,<br />

cabbage and broccoli.<br />

If you want a variation on plain<br />

broccoli, try broccoflower. It has<br />

a milder and slightly sweeter<br />

taste to cauliflower – and looks<br />

like a lime green cauliflower. Or<br />

Italian (Romanesco) broccoli,<br />

with its light green clusters of<br />

heads that resemble sea coral.<br />

The unusual tip of each spear<br />

is conical rather than round,<br />

looking like the ‘royal’ version.<br />

It tastes more like true broccoli,<br />

but at its very best!<br />

Also try the newest (and<br />

trendiest) member of the broccoli<br />

family, broccolini (tasty<br />

stems); a hybrid between broccoli<br />

and Chinese broccoli. It’s<br />

slightly sweeter than normal<br />

broccoli. You can compare its<br />

GROWTH:<br />

Brassicas<br />

should be<br />

planted<br />

35-50cm<br />

apart.<br />

taste to asparagus, and it’s ideal<br />

for stir-fries.<br />

And now to plant your broccoli.<br />

Firstly, they like a freedraining<br />

and sunny spot, and to<br />

be planted in a new place each<br />

year. This crop rotation will<br />

ensure premium growth and<br />

quality. When you’ve found your<br />

perfect place to plant, dig holes<br />

roughly twice the size of the<br />

seedling, around 35-50cm apart.<br />

Place inside and firmly press the<br />

soil down with your hands.<br />

These brassicas will all take<br />

a while to mature, so consider<br />

popping in faster growing plants<br />

between each seedling – this is<br />

called companion planting. Pak<br />

choy, beetroot, radish, spring<br />

onions and spinach are all fast<br />

growing veges you can poke in<br />

between your larger brassicas,<br />

and harvest before the brassicas<br />

are ready.<br />

Lastly, apply mulch. This will<br />

help keep the weeds down and<br />

retain moisture. Pea straw and<br />

bark mulch are popular choices,<br />

but pine needles, wet newspaper<br />

strips and even wool packing<br />

from your ‘My Food Bag’ will do<br />

the trick.<br />

When it comes to harvesting<br />

your broccoli heads, cut them off<br />

diagonally. This will encourage<br />

new mini-heads to grow, giving<br />

you a long cropping season. And,<br />

if you suddenly find all your<br />

broccoli is ready at once and you<br />

don’t quite have the stomach<br />

for it, remember it freezes really<br />

well.<br />

Simply place in a snap lock<br />

bag, and it will keep nicely for a<br />

few months.

Enhance your outdoor<br />

area with custommade<br />

Canterbury’s summer sun can be hot<br />

and intense so when you want to enjoy<br />

locally owned company Shadecraft can<br />

meet all your needs.<br />

Specialising in custom-made shade<br />

options, Shadecraft has been in operation<br />

for 16 years and prides itself on its many<br />

word of mouth, says owner Mark Levey,<br />

and he thanks all those who have referred<br />

Shadecraft to other customers.<br />

The products are of the higher standard<br />

and Mark is always available and generally<br />

on site during installation to ensure things<br />

run smoothly.<br />

One of Shadecraft’s most sought after<br />

products, Mark says, has been the Eclipse<br />

canopy which offers an outdoor area<br />

protected from all weather conditions, but<br />

still lets in the natural light. These can also<br />

be fitted with drop blinds to fully enclose<br />

the area.<br />

These provide protection from the sun<br />

while also visually enhancing the area<br />

gatherings.<br />

Other options available from Shadecraft<br />

Taking a feng shui<br />

perspective<br />

Everyone’s living space is<br />

different so there’s no one-size-fitsall<br />

approach to the philosophy of<br />

feng shui, whether you reside in a<br />

small apartment or a large home.<br />

Feng shui is a practice that by<br />

looking at our built environments<br />

we can live in harmony with the<br />

principles of the natural world.<br />

Feng means “wind” and shui<br />

translates to “water” in Chinese.<br />

This comes from an ancient poem<br />

and reflects upon how human life<br />

can be ideal if we connect and<br />

live in flow with the environment<br />

around us.<br />

Feng shui can help you make<br />

the most of your living space<br />

by harmonising its energy flow.<br />

Feng shui splits the world into<br />

five elements: wood (creativity<br />

and growth); fire (leadership<br />

and boldness); earth (strength<br />

and stability); metal (focus and<br />

order) and water (emotion and<br />

inspiration). Working to balance<br />

these elements can help their<br />

corresponding traits to thrive in<br />

your life.<br />

There’s a lot more to feng shui<br />

but these are some basic ideas.<br />

Use your front door<br />

Many people live in homes where<br />

they drive up into the garage and<br />

use the back door to get in. While<br />

this is very convenient, from a feng<br />

shui perspective this may limit<br />

good energy and opportunities in<br />

your life because again, the entry<br />

door represents how chi energy<br />

enters your home and life.<br />

Space above the kitchen<br />

cabinets<br />

Take a look at your kitchen<br />

cabinets and check to see if there<br />

is space above them. This space<br />

can attract dust and stagnant<br />

energy. The chi gets stuck there<br />

and encourages dead energy which<br />

may hold you back in your life.<br />

If there is a space, some lighting,<br />

green plants (live or very realistic<br />

looking) or beautiful and loved<br />

objects in this location. These<br />

objects bring life to this area and<br />

transforms the energy.<br />

Cover up the TV in your<br />

bedroom<br />

Most of us have televisions in our<br />

bedroom. The active energy of the<br />

television as well as the electronic<br />

aspect of it may be disruptive to the<br />

type of calming quiet energy more<br />

conducive to sleep and bedrooms<br />

so one idea is to cover up the TV.<br />

Clean all windows<br />

Your home’s windows symbolise<br />

your eyes to the world. We want<br />

to be able to see and experience<br />

everything that the universe has to<br />

offer us. Find some old newspaper,<br />

grab a bottle of vinegar and water<br />

and clean away the grime.<br />

This is a very simple introduction<br />

to feng shui but there is plenty<br />

more information online if you<br />

are keen to find out how you can<br />

embrace this philosophy within<br />

your own home.<br />

Choosing carpet<br />

made easier<br />

Being able to select a new carpet is<br />

so much easier when you can see the<br />

samples at home and how they look under<br />

different lights or alongside your colour<br />

scheme and furniture.<br />

Recarpeting your home is certainly a<br />

big undertaking in terms of updating the<br />

look of your much-loved home and, with<br />

so many different ranges in both carpet<br />

and hard flooring, making a choice can be<br />

difficult.<br />

Harrisons Carpet has a team of mobile<br />

carpet retailers who are available seven<br />

days a week to bring a wide range of<br />

flooring options straight to your door so<br />

you do not have to travel to a showroom<br />

and return samples once you have<br />

finished.<br />

Amanda Wilson has owned and<br />

operated Harrisons Carpet Canterbury<br />

Country, including the <strong>Selwyn</strong> district, for<br />

five years. The combination of the quality<br />

flooring products Harrisons supplies<br />

Amanda loving what she does.<br />

people’s homes,” she says, “and I’m grateful<br />

for the trust they put in me”.<br />

Initial consultations are done over the<br />

phone or online at the Harrisons website<br />

(www.harrisonscarpet.co.nz) and a<br />

mutually convenient time is scheduled for<br />

Amanda to meet you at your home.<br />

With laser technology and smart<br />

devices, measuring and quoting is a<br />

simple, quick process, done on the spot.<br />

Carpet is chosen, arrangements are<br />

made to move furniture – you can<br />

do it yourself or Harrisons offer a<br />

competitively priced service – and the<br />

installation takes place.<br />

“This is usually carried out over no<br />

more than one or two days, as quickly<br />

and conveniently as possible with fully<br />

qualified, professional installers,” says<br />

Amanda.<br />

As part of her service, she is always<br />

available to offer advice and tips or<br />

Saving time, money and water<br />

on your irrigation needs<br />

Now the hot days of summer are<br />

almost over, it is a great time to think<br />

about upgrading your watering system<br />

to some of the latest cost effective and<br />

easy to use automated options, according<br />

to Phil Hudson from locally owned<br />

company Freeman Irrigation.<br />

The latest technology comes into play<br />

with automated WiFi – the sprinklers can<br />

be connected to weather station forecasts<br />

so if rain is expected the amount of water<br />

is reduced.<br />

Automatic systems save water by<br />

irrigation at the correct time of day,<br />

minimising evaporation.<br />

Being able to operate your system<br />

remotely also means you can adjust the<br />

flow at any time to suit the conditions,<br />

saving water and money and a built-in<br />

water system not only adds value to your<br />

property but they also work while you<br />

are way on holiday.<br />

“We have a range of smartphone<br />

controllers and rain sensors that can be<br />

fitted to most systems, allowing to have<br />

easy control from anywhere. If you want<br />

to save money and conserve water a good<br />

rain sensor is an affordable solution,” says<br />

Phil.<br />

Heading into the cooler months is also<br />

a great time for maintenance on your<br />

irrigation systems after the hot summer.<br />

Some of the basic problems include<br />

clogged sprinklers; leaking sprinklers and<br />

valves; obstructed sprinklers; leaking/<br />

blocked solenoid valves; overspray onto<br />

footpaths, streets or buildings; design<br />

problems; missing nozzles or pipe leaks<br />

and breaks.<br />

Freeman Irrigation has a range of<br />

irrigation services, not just for residential<br />

homes but also parks, golf courses,<br />

horticultural and viticultural properties,<br />

sub-divisions and commercial properties.<br />

Beautiful gardens create appeal<br />

A beautifully landscaped lawn and<br />

garden create the finishing touches<br />

to the curb appeal of every home and<br />

property.<br />

Figuring out what landscape<br />

components you want in your outdoor<br />

area can be difficult, particularly<br />

when there are so many options but<br />

often a fresh eye can give you a new<br />

perspective.<br />

Engaging an expert like Sharon from<br />

Sharon Crofts Landscape Design can<br />

make a huge difference to the look of<br />

your outdoor area, resulting in a garden<br />

that exudes that professional touch.<br />

Sharon covers all aspects of landscape<br />

design from the initial site consultation<br />

to preparing design concepts and<br />

planting proposals, making it easy<br />

for the homeowners to implement<br />

themselves if that want to. If not Sharon<br />

Crofts Landscape Design has a team of<br />

experienced and professional contracts<br />

who will complete the work to exacting<br />

standards.<br />

They work throughout Canterbury<br />

including residential properties,<br />

rural and lifestyle blocks and new<br />

subdivisions, particularly in the <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

area.<br />

Sharon enjoys working collaboratively<br />

with her clients and transforming initial<br />

plans into reality within budget and on<br />

time. Her many years of experience also<br />

help when it comes to what planting<br />

works in the Canterbury climate and<br />

with local soils.<br />

With the advent of cooler weather<br />

it is a good time to up keep lawn<br />

maintenance such as topdressing and<br />

fertilising to boost new growth.<br />

If you are thinking of creating a new<br />

area within your garden new plants will<br />

make better progress now that the hot<br />

summer months are over and, if planted<br />

now, they will make some good growth<br />

during autumn.<br />

It is also a good time to think about<br />

plants that may not be in the right<br />

position. They could be wrenched in<br />

autumn (dug around) and uplifted<br />

during the winter months.<br />

“Of course not all plants are keen on<br />

this so it is best to get some professional<br />

advice on which plants may or may not<br />

easily shift,” says Sharon.<br />

Meat exports hit record high,<br />

but coronavirus looms<br />

Export prices for meat achieved their<br />

highest-ever level in the December 2019<br />

quarter, according to Stats NZ.<br />

“Meat export prices have risen for three<br />

quarters in a row, on the back of strong<br />

demand towards the end of last year,” says<br />

Stats NZ business prices manager Bryan<br />

Downes said.<br />

Meat volumes rose 3.2%, and values rose<br />

12% in the December 2019 quarter.<br />

“Over the year, meat prices also rose,<br />

with both beef and lamb prices up,” says<br />

Downes.<br />

The impact of coronavirus on New<br />

Zealand’s export prices is yet to be<br />

announced by Stats NZ.<br />

“Exports of meat and logs increased<br />

towards the end of 2019, before the<br />

outbreak of coronavirus in China,” says<br />

Downes. China is New Zealand’s biggest<br />

trading partner.<br />

“Any impact of the coronavirus on<br />

prices for our goods and services, mainly<br />

because of disruptions to global trade,<br />

could be reflected in the <strong>March</strong> <strong>2020</strong><br />

quarter,” says Downes.<br />

Wood export prices also rose in the<br />

December 2019 quarter, up 8.2%, partly<br />

recovering from falls in the previous two<br />

quarters.<br />

Illustration: Graph from Stats NZ<br />

Partly offsetting the rise in meat and<br />

wood export prices was a 2.4% fall in<br />

dairy prices.<br />

While volumes were up 14%, the value<br />

of dairy exports rose by only 11%.<br />

The fall in dairy prices was driven by<br />

an 11% fall in butter prices in the latest<br />

quarter.<br />

However, butter prices remain at<br />

historically high levels following strong<br />

price increases a few years ago. Overall,<br />

export prices rose 3.0% in the December<br />

2019 quarter.<br />

Sedan boosts Toyota Corolla load space<br />

TOYOTA NEW Zealand is<br />

pulling no punches marketing its<br />

Corolla range.<br />

Not only are there a handful of<br />

new variants within the range -<br />

bearing in mind the latest generation<br />

series landed here just over<br />

two years ago - but a fresh pricing<br />

structure makes for value-packed<br />

buying across sedan, hatchback<br />

and wagon options.<br />

I recently evaluated the new<br />

wagon and remarked on its<br />

value at just below $30k; another<br />

newcomer is the SX sedan and it<br />

is the subject of this evaluation. It<br />

is also value at $32,990, and to be<br />

honest if I was a buyer I couldn’t<br />

choose between the two, I particularly<br />

like wagons and sedans,<br />

and both have special appeal,<br />

although the sedan with its 2-litre<br />

engine against 1.8-litre for the<br />

wagon may just tip the balance.<br />

And SX grade is certainly for<br />

me, it translates to cloth interior<br />

trim, but it also has plenty of other<br />

goodies to keep me happy in the<br />

cabin such as sat nav, paddle shifters,<br />

and radar cruise control. The<br />

latter is part of the Toyota Sense<br />

suite of safety kit that is fitted<br />

throughout the Corolla range and<br />

it is state-of-the-art, easily earning<br />

a five-star Australasian New Car<br />

Assessment Program rating.<br />

A totally new platform was developed<br />

for the latest generation<br />

Corolla, and it formed the basis<br />

for the extensive array of body<br />

styles that all sit on a complex<br />

fully independent suspension system.<br />

This draws me to the range,<br />

I like the idea of all four corners<br />

working in their own way and<br />

with the spring and damper rates<br />

set to a medium compromise the<br />

Corolla sedan feels sporty and<br />

well attached to the road.<br />

In saying that, the SX variant<br />

rides on 205/55 x 16in Dunlop<br />

rubber, there’s nothing wrong<br />

with the handling and the tyres<br />

are very quiet, but if I was a<br />

buyer I think I’d opt for an <strong>18</strong>in<br />

wheel which is standard on other<br />

Corolla models, they would offer<br />

a lot more presence.<br />

There are no surprises under<br />

the bonnet, well there are in some<br />

ways, the new sedan is available<br />

as a hybrid as well.<br />

However, the SX is solely reliant<br />

on petrol power, its 2-litre engine<br />

is now well-established into the<br />

Corolla hatch and sedan, and it<br />

is a no-nonsense unit with power<br />

figures of 125kW and 200Nm, the<br />

outputs realised at 6600rpm and<br />

4100rpm respectively.<br />

While the latter would appear<br />

to make the engine peaky, that’s<br />

not the case, the engine is happy<br />

to work low down, and with its<br />

TOYOTA COROLLA SEDAN: Huge boot space.<br />

pairing to a continuously variable<br />

transmission the engine finds its<br />

happy place through the midrange.<br />

Toyota have worked hard<br />

with the CVT system, it now works<br />

almost like a traditional torque<br />

converter automatic with physical<br />

gears, it is a 10-step system and can<br />

be locked into any pre-set step by<br />

sequentially using the main gearshift<br />

lever or paddles.<br />

As an aside, there’s also a sport<br />

mode which heightens engine<br />

urgency and adjusts the way the<br />

ratio works so that acceleration<br />

can be ushered in just that little<br />

bit quicker. Toyota claims a 9.2sec<br />

standstill to 100km/h time, while<br />

by my stopwatch a 5.4sec 80km/h<br />

to 120km/h overtaking time can<br />

be achieved.<br />

These figures relate to brisk<br />

motoring, the beauty of a 2-litre<br />

engine is that it’s not working<br />

hard, the sedan weighs in at<br />

around 1300kg, which means a<br />

healthy power-to-weight ratio.<br />

That also means the engine isn’t<br />

working hard for the majority<br />

of the time and that translates<br />

to respectable fuel usage figures.<br />

Toyota also claims a six-litre per<br />

100km combined cycle average.<br />

That correlates well with the fuel<br />

usage display within the car, it<br />

was constantly listing around<br />

7.1l/100km with 5l/100km showing<br />

instantaneously at 100km/h.<br />

What makes the fuel usage figures<br />

so appealing is that I evaluated<br />

the Corolla sedan on one of<br />

the hottest days of Christchurch’s<br />

summer. Normally, I never use air<br />

conditioning, but with temperatures<br />

hovering around 35 deg C I<br />

had the air on most of the time.<br />

Combining good performance<br />

and economy isn’t achieved easily,<br />

but given the Corolla’s long<br />

history that’s something Toyota<br />

has been able to work on over the<br />

years, it is wonderfully efficient,<br />

yet all models feel feisty and<br />

there’s just that element of sporty<br />

appeal that will lure those who<br />

like to push along a bit when the<br />

• Price – Toyota Corolla SX<br />

sedan, $32,990<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

4630mm; width, 1780mm;<br />

height, 1435mm<br />

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,<br />

front-wheeldrive,<br />

1987cc, 125kW,<br />

200Nm, continuously<br />

variable automatic.<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 9.2sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 6l/100km<br />

open road beckons.<br />

It’s also nice to know that when<br />

the long straights run out there<br />

is a chassis underneath that is<br />

capable of dealing with the twists<br />

and turns without affecting the<br />

level of comfort we have come to<br />

expect from one of the automotive<br />

world’s most successful<br />

nameplates.<br />

For the record, Toyota lists the<br />

sedan’s boot space with a load capacity<br />

of 470-litres, that compares<br />

to 294-litres for the hatch and<br />

390-litres for the wagon. Interesting<br />

figures which will certainly<br />

get those who are looking for<br />

load space scratching their heads.<br />

Toyota is pushing hard the<br />

hybrid message, however, there’s<br />

still a lot of life left in petrol only<br />

engines only. The Corolla in all<br />

forms is a fuel miser and I’d find<br />

it a difficult choice to choose<br />

between either.<br />

However, the SX sedan<br />

certainly captures my attention<br />

for its honesty and all round<br />

appeal.

This is a beautifully presented property situated in the favoured<br />

location of West Melton only 10 minutes from all the amenities and<br />

schooling this booming township has to offer.<br />

Situated on 4 Hectares (two road frontages) with each dwelling<br />

having its own separate entrance. The 270m 2 main home consists<br />

of four double bedrooms, master bedroom with ensuite & WIR,<br />

generous sized living areas, modern kitchen and large separate<br />

laundry.<br />

Mature garden setting of trees and sweeping lawns. The second<br />

dwelling is a modern two bedroom home with separate double<br />

garage with it’s own entrance. This home has great indoor/outdoor<br />

flow onto two decked areas all north facing with nice views. The<br />

property is very well fenced and subdivided with mature trimmed<br />

pine hedges offering privacy and shelter.<br />

This Rural Farmlet is as good as you will get, everything since<br />

development days has been done properly, the layout, shelter<br />

belts, positioning of the outbuildings and dwellings make<br />

everything run smoothly. This property has instant appeal and<br />

would be a great place to bring up a young family and perhaps have<br />

the grandparents on board as well.<br />

WHALAN AND PARTNERS LTD, BAYLEYS, LICENSED REAA 2008<br />

Make small fixes<br />

Inspect your home with a buyer’s eyes,<br />

and correct the flaws that are most<br />

egregious (if affordable) or can be<br />

relatively easily fixed—from repairing<br />

cracks in the walkways to repainting<br />

dingy walls or oiling creaky hinges.<br />

Select the best real estate agent<br />

For a commission, an agent will take care<br />

of many details you may not want to be<br />

bothered with (placing ads, fielding calls,<br />

making signs, etc.) and bring experience<br />

to the table. To find a good one, ask<br />

friends and relatives, then interview<br />

several candidates.<br />

Set a price<br />

A real estate agent will give you a market<br />

analysis free of charge or commitment.<br />

Ask a few to get a broader picture of the<br />

market. Check out<br />

comparable listings<br />

yourself in the real<br />

estate section of<br />

your newspaper or<br />

on websites. Then<br />

decide whether you<br />

want a quick, easy<br />

sale or the highest<br />

possible price.<br />

Clean & declutter<br />

Weed out excess<br />

furniture,<br />

knicknacks, and<br />

“stuff ”—toss it,<br />

donate it, give<br />

it away, sell it at a garage sale, or put<br />

it into storage—so the house seems<br />

more spacious and buyers can imagine<br />

themselves in it.<br />

Stay vigiliant about maintenance<br />

Keep the lawn mowed, shrubs trimmed,<br />

gardens weeded, rooms spotless and<br />

clutter-free.<br />

Ready your home for open days<br />

Hide pocketable valuables, display fresh<br />

flowers or bowls of fruit, bake a batch of<br />

cookies for the homey smell, open the<br />

drapes, keep pets out of sight.<br />

Decide whether to do your own<br />

building inspection<br />

It may save you time, especially with<br />

older homes, to identify—and potentially<br />

solve—problems your buyer’s inspection<br />

will discover later.<br />

Confident at Auctions<br />

Looking confident may be all you need to be the last<br />

bidder standing when the hammer goes down.<br />

Does your blood pressure go sky-high at<br />

the sight of an auction room? Chances are<br />

some of your fellow bidders are doing all<br />

in their power to psych you out and win<br />

the bidding.<br />

Securing a property isn’t just about<br />

having the most money. Sometimes the<br />

winning bidder is the one with the most<br />

confidence.<br />

They use psychology to convince<br />

opposing bidders to give up, hoping to<br />

make everyone else think they’ve got more<br />

to spend than anyone else in the room.<br />

Too often buyers have preconceived<br />

ideas about how the auction will unfold<br />

and have their confidence knocked when it<br />

doesn’t go their way.<br />

Two can play at that game. You just need<br />

to get your strategy right.<br />

Looking confident may be all you need<br />

to be the last bidder standing when the<br />

hammer goes down.<br />

To be that person you need to do some<br />

preparation. Make sure you go to a few<br />

auctions first to get used to them.<br />

Come bidding day, park yourself on<br />

the side at the front so that you can<br />

see everyone in the room and, more<br />

importantly, they can see you whether<br />

they’re at the back of the front.<br />

It gives you a vantage point and shows<br />

the opposition you are bidding confidently<br />

against them.<br />

You are hoping that the other buyers<br />

have a plan in place.<br />

Often that’s to start low. So if you come<br />

in with a relatively high first bid, you may<br />

rattle them.<br />

“The lower the open bid the more people<br />

can afford to bid. So you could knock out<br />

some of the opposition before they even<br />

place a bid if you choose the right opener.<br />

Don’t start at $500,000 for a house you<br />

know is going to go for at least $800,000.<br />

Put an opening bid of $785,000.<br />

Immediately your opposition is going to<br />

think it will go incredibly high and might<br />

be unnerved.<br />

Call each bid out confidently. “It shows<br />

you are comfortable and in control.<br />

The more confident you seem the more<br />

people will think you have done it before.<br />

It’s a really good idea to vary your<br />

bidding increments.. If it’s going up by<br />

$2000 bids and it’s below your limit don’t<br />

be afraid to put a $10,000 bid in..<br />

Your competition is always thinking<br />

about that next $2000 bid and if you<br />

change the rhythm from $2000 to $10,000<br />

you show you have the money and it<br />

changes where their next bid has to be.<br />

Instead of $4000 more it is $12,000 more.<br />

Finally, if you’re a couple, make sure<br />

you’ve discussed every aspect of the<br />

auction before you get there. As soon<br />

as you start looking at each other or<br />

conferring, the opposition will think<br />

you’re weak.<br />

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections<br />

in the <strong>Selwyn</strong> District<br />

New showhomes<br />

opening in <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

The district’s showhome scene is changing. Still<br />

concentrated around Lincoln or Rolleston, there are<br />

showhome villages in new residential housing estates<br />

and a few standalone showhomes.<br />

Some showhomes double as a base for a building<br />

company. Most showcase their workmanship and<br />

type of homes they specialise in. All offer ideas on<br />

building products and trends.<br />

When viewing a showhome, allocate time. It will<br />

take more than one afternoon to view all in the<br />

district. You might make a quick visit to each, noting<br />

those to revisit for a longer perusal.<br />

All but one showhome in Lincoln, is situated in the<br />

newer part of Te Whāriki’s Southfield Drive. Here<br />

seven building companies offer a total of eight homes<br />

to view, of varying size, design and level of fittings<br />

and features. Three more showhomes can be found<br />

in Lincoln’s Flemington, with two due to close soon.<br />

If looking to build at the higher end of the market,<br />

the Te Whāriki showhomes of Faye Homes and<br />

Hallmark Homes, along with Homes by Maxim in<br />

Flemington and R&B Builders’ showhome in The<br />

Borough, Rolleston should top your list. Many other<br />

showhomes also offer innovative ideas for how style<br />

can be added to a new home.<br />

It is changing of the guard for showhomes in<br />

Rolleston. Faringdon’s East Maddisons Road village<br />

is slowly winding down with a number now closed.<br />

The remaining showhomes are worth a view.<br />

New showhomes are under construction or<br />

have opened in The Borough, Faringdon’s latest<br />

development, with more to open in the next month<br />

or so. A total of 14 showhomes are to be constructed<br />

there. A smaller showhome village is being<br />

established at Acland Park.<br />

Along the Springston Rolleston Road, Today<br />

Homes’ showhome is open every afternoon. BT<br />

Builders and Generation Homes have showhomes at<br />

the entrance to Branthwaite on the Lincoln Rolleston<br />

Road and there are seven showhomes open in<br />

Falcons Landing with an eighth due to open in June.<br />

Two more standalone showhomes can be found in<br />

Rolleston: Freedom Built on Goulds Road (open<br />

Monday to Thursday or by appointment) and Full<br />

Circle Homes at 12 Lignite Drive in Stonebrook,<br />

(open for viewing by appointment).<br />

While most showhomes are open 12noon-4pm<br />

from Wednesday to Sunday, the opening hours for<br />

others are different. Details can usually be found<br />

on a company’s website. Most are happy to open by<br />

appointment.<br />

To make the most of your showhome viewing,<br />

keep an open mind when visiting each home. On<br />

entering, ask the consultant for its details: the size of<br />

the home (this influences how spacious each room<br />

will look), what is standard within the home and<br />

additional features which will cost more, and the<br />

price to build that particular home. Take notes or<br />

photos of fittings and features you like, being realistic<br />

about your wish list and bearing in mind your<br />

budget as this will influence what can ultimately be<br />

incorporated into your new home.<br />
