meeting

with tradies

to prevent

building site

burglaries

• By Devon Bolger

HOUSES UNDER construction

in the district are now the main

target for burglars.

Police say about two burglaries

are being committed each week –

more than occupied houses and

commercial premises.

Said Senior

Sergeant Dean

Harker: “It

is not a large

number but

it is a cost to

the building

companies and

the clients.” Dean Harker

Police are

holding a meeting with building

companies next week to tell them

how properties under construction

can be protected.

Toilets, baths and vanity units

are the main items being taken.

Burglaries have increased since

the lifting of the lockdown.

“The key messages are ensuring

properties are secure, builders

gear and appliances are kept out

of sight and identifiable where

possible in case they are stolen,”

said Senior Sergeant Harker.

Full steam ahead

for 150th Selwyn Spring Show

• By Devon Bolger

THE SELWYN Spring Show

will go ahead this year in spite of

the New Zealand Agricultural

Show being cancelled.

Ellesmere A&P Association

president Andrew Benny said

they think it will be bigger this

year due to the cancellation

of the New

Zealand

Agricultural

Show held in

Christchurch.

“Also the

fact that it

is our 150th

celebration

this year.

There will be more stallholders

and spots will fill fast.

“There will also be a higher

density of historic and vintage

displays due to the 150th-year.”

The spring show usually attracts

a crowd of about 12,000

people.

“We are expecting that to be

surpassed this year all things going

to plan from here on in.”

The New Zealand Agricultural

Show, which was due to be held

in November, was cancelled last

VINTAGE: The Selwyn Spring Show is going ahead this year

and celebrating its 150th anniversary. Clydesdales will once

again be on display.

month due to the uncertainty

posed by the Covid-19 crisis.

It is the first time it has not

been held since World War 2.

Mr Benny said the committee

thought long and hard about all

the implications of going ahead

this year and put the decision off

for as long as possible.

“We consulted various

interested parties and came

away confident that going ahead

with the show was the right

thing to do.”

comedy night

He said the show brings in

not just local residents but the

wider regional and national

community.

“With the cancellation of the

New Zealand Agricultural Show,

we are especially excited about

the prospect of offering a really

grass roots showcase of local

agriculture and all its associated

activities.

“Of course, not to mention

celebrating the marvellous history

of this institution in New

Zealand. The show will be a big

boost to local businesses and an

enjoyable return to normality for

our community.”

Special events for this year’s

show include feature classes reflecting

history across the stock

sections.

The clydesdale class has

been reintroduced in the

horse section. History and

vintage items will be on display

by the Ellesmere Historical

Society.

The wearable arts competition

will also have a historic theme.

•The Selwyn Spring Show

will be held at the Ellesmere

Showgrounds on October 17.

HOUSE FIRE INJURY

A person suffered moderate

injuries after a house fire near

Leeston early on Thursday

morning. Six fire crews attended

the blaze at a property on

Leeston Rd, halfway between

Lincoln and Leeston, which

broke out about 12.30am. A Fire

and Emergency NZ spokesman

said on arrival, the fire was

discovered to have spread from

the switchboard up into the

roof, and crews extinguished it

by about 2am. One person who

suffered smoke inhalation was

transported to hospital by St

John and later discharged.

HIGHWAY CLOSURE U-TURN

The NZ Transport Agency has

done a U-turn on its plan to

close Arthur’s Pass to drivers on

days when snow and ice need

to be cleared. Under the new

system, State Highway 73 across

the Southern Alps would remain

closed while ice and snow were

cleared. A petition with about

20,000 signatures was launched

asking for the new rule to be

revoked. An NZTA spokesman

said the “chains essential”

category would be reinstated for

winter conditions on SH73 when

required.

Water renewals for the ward

($370,000).

Wastewater upgrades and renewals

($646,000).

Some of the projects outlined

in the 2020/21 draft Annual Plan

have been carried forward from

the 2019/20 financial year.

As part of the plan, the district

council consulted on rates options

for this year in a bid to ease financial

pressure on residents.

It was decided that rates will

increase by about 1.6 per cent,

lower than the expected 3.5 per

cent increase.

The general rate will increase by

three per cent, the water supply

rate by four per cent and the water

race rate by three per cent which

equates to the average 1.6 per cent.

Other options considered

included keeping rates at the

level they are now, increasing the

volumetric water charge by 21 per

cent and proceeding with the 3.5

per cent increase.

The district council identified

savings of $1.7 million to reduce

the level of the rates increase.

Deferred projects include

refurbishments at the district

council offices and public toilets

for Lincoln and Prebbleton.

Catering at district council

meetings will also be stopped.

THERE HAVE been a record

number of building consent

applications for the district since

the lockdown ended.

The district council was receiving

an average of around 220

new building consents a month

prior to Covid-19.

Following the end of the

lockdown, it received 258 applications

in May and is on track

to reach that number again this

month.

District council building

manager Vanessa Mitchell says

the consent team has also gone

from carrying out 1400 building

inspections a month to about

1600 inspections in May,

“That is around 80 a day and

it’s been getting busier in June,

with the numbers looking like

they could top 1800 inspections

by the end of the month.”

Over 60 per cent of all applications

have been for new buildings,

she says.

The district council continued

to receive and process consents

through all alert levels with

digital and some on-site

inspections able to take place for

SURGE:

The number

of building

consents

was up to

about 1600

inspections in

May and it has

been getting

busier this

month. ​

Large numbers of building applications

the start of level 3.

“The team has cleared all its

consents from the lockdown and

has been supported by staff from

Napier City Council but the level

of demand means some consent

processing times may be slower

than usual.

“We’ve been able at this stage

to keep to our commitment of

a 48-hour turnaround from

booking to us carrying out

inspections. We’re doing our

best to keep up, but people may

see some slippage in the time

frames,” Mrs Mitchell says.

Water heater,

dehumidifier and

whiteware have

been stolen

•From page 1

“We will also cover what

type of alarms can be used

and answer questions around

insurance, who is liable and

things like that.”

He said the main reason for the

meeting is to try to cut down the

opportunities for burglars.

Earlier this month, a

dehumidifier and water heater

were taken from a house under

construction in on Billy T Lane in

Rolleston.

Last month $10,000 worth of

new appliances were stolen from a

house being built in Lincoln.

An induction cooktop,

dishwasher, microwave, oven,

Insinkerator, rangehood and

tapware was stolen from the home

being constructed on Whitehorn

Drive.

The offenders also stole a

gardener’s trailer parked on

the roadside nearby, using it to

transport the whiteware.

Love, Learn and Play

the Freckles way!

OPENING OCTOBER 2020

Freckles Early Learning Centre is a brand new purposebuilt,

spacious facility in Rolleston with the best and

latest pedagogical experiences. Freckles is built on a

massive 3500m2 site and is licensed for only 70 children

centre-wide.

When owners Tracy and Gavin Summerfield were approached

by the developer of Falcons Landing, Rolleston to build

another centre, they thought long and hard about it. They

had observed a number of new centres opening in recent

years but most seemed to be concentrating on larger licences

with smaller sites. So they decided they would do something

different. Freckles has been designed with children in mind,

with spacious indoor and outdoor areas, enabling children to

explore, identify, negotiate, take risks and create meaning to

learn about the world around them.

Freckles will operate three stage and age appropriate

rooms employing qualified teachers in all environments.

Tracy says their success with the couple’s The Cat’s Pyjamas

Rolleston and West Melton early learning centres is built

on having the best possible staff and this will continue at

Freckles. “We are committed to staffing the new centre with

qualified, passionate and caring people who believe in our

vision, values and philosophy. We know they will have relevant

skills and experience, that they will bring something unique

to our team, and that they will put the children in their care

before anything else.”

The Freckles vision: creating places that are rich in love,

laughter and learning.

“Every decision we make comes from the heart,” Tracy

adds. “Our aim is to provide beautiful spaces that are full of

happy, nurtured and challenged children, where the wonder

of learning thrives.’ “To us, family is everything. We are

passionate about creating early learning centres that offer a

safe, welcoming and nurturing environment”.

Freckles Early Learning Centre provides space and

opportunity for physical play.

Play is valuable for children’s physical development as

they run, climb, skip, hop, jump, throw and catch. Physical

play helps build on children’s fine and gross motor skills,

and having the space to provide swings, bike tracks, fixed

and moveable play equipment is very important for child

development.

YOU ARE WARMLY INVITED to follow our journey as

Freckles develops and becomes part of the Rolleston

community.

Theo shocked at Bloomfield response

• By Devon Bolger

WHEN 12-year-old Theo Alp

sent Dr Ashley Bloomfield a

letter he was not expecting a

hand-written response.

The West Rolleston School

pupil wrote the director-general

of health a letter as part of a unit

at school.

Dr Bloomfield has been largely

credited with the country’s

success in dealing with Covid-19.

Theo

said he was

shocked when

he received

a letter back

from him.

“I wasn’t

expecting a

handwritten

Ashley

Bloomfield

letter. My

dad went

outside and

checked the letterbox and there

was a letter from the Ministry

of Health and then my mum

freaked out.”

In his response, Dr Bloomfield

said: “Thank you very much for

your letter and the very kind

words. I was fortunate to be working

with such a fantastic team.

“All the very best to you and

the teachers and students at West

Rolleston School.”

Theo, along with his classmates,

GRATEFUL: West Rolleston

School pupil Theo Alp was

shocked to receive a response

to the letter he sent to Dr

Ashley Bloomfield. ​

was tasked with writing a letter

of gratitude to a person he felt

thankful for.

“I chose Dr Ashley Bloomfield

because lots of people were writing

to Jacinda Ardern and to

the Rolleston Medical Centre

or some of our teachers and

I wanted to pick somebody

different who other people might

not think to thank.

“I told him that he had ultimate

bragging rights but he is

very humble. I honestly think he

is trying the best that he can and

we are really grateful.”

Theo’s teacher Katie Talbot

said: “Gratitude is a massive

part of our school model of

health and well being so we

wanted to pass on the gratitude

that we felt for making it

through the lockdown safely.

“Theo’s letter was really

nice and it was great he got

a response.”

Dear Theo,

Thank you very much for your letter and

the very kind words.

I was fortunate to be working with such a

fantastic team, they all worked so hard to

protect New Zealanders.

Of course, Kiwis also did what was asked of

them through the lockdown and now we are

in a very good position.

All the best to you and the teachers and

students at West Rolleston School.

Thanks to you all for doing your bit for

Aotearoa/NZ.

Take Care, Ashley.

GENEROUS: Lincoln High School year 11 social studies students

are attempting what they call the school’s biggest food drive yet.

Students organise

massive food drive

LINCOLN HIGH school is

attempting to fill a trailer load

of donated goods to give to the

Christchurch City Mission.

The school is asking not only

students to help with their mission

but the wider community as

well.

About 700 donated items

were collected from students on

Wednesday last week.

A drop-off point was also set

up for the community at Lincoln

New World on Saturday.

The initiative is being led by

the year 11 social studies class

with help from the school’s services

council.

The idea came from the

increased demand food banks

around the country are reporting

since Covid-19.

As well as the usual cans

and non-perishable food

items, the school is also asking

for donations of food for full

meals.

Teacher Lana Werahiko said

they will also be confidentially

delivering the food to people in

need within the community.

“Covid-19 has been hard on

many in our community and

these young people are wanting

to support all of Canterbury

by donating these goods to the

Christchurch City Mission.”

The donated items which are

expected to be dropped off this

week.

GROUNDWORK: Work on the Rolleston health hub is progressing with concrete

foundations poured last week. District council property group manager Douglas Marshall

said the ground floor slab will be poured in three stages. The first pour was completed last

Wednesday and the second is due on July 1. The final pour is expected on or around July

15. Precast concrete panels are expected to arrive at the site today. Major structural steel

elements will start to arrive in late August 2020. The $14.8 million facility is being built on

land directly opposite the district council offices, next to the St John ambulance base. ​

New

entrant

Esther Burns has started

at Leeston Primary School

after turning five during

the Covid-19 lockdown. ​

GOOD CAUSE: Goods donated from the students and the

wider community will be packed into a trailer and presented to

the Christchurch City Mission. ​

CONTINUING EDUCATION

Midwifery delivers new

direction for young mum

Shelley Tweedie’s decision to become

a midwife came from a desire to create a

secure future for herself and her young

daughter.

After high school she had a string of jobs

including working at a printing company,

as a weighbridge operator and doing youth

and mental health work, but nothing felt

like the right fit. “I just basically got to a

point in my life where I needed to create

some stability,” she explains.

Shelley became “really passionate and

driven” about a career as a midwife.

She chose to study at Ara Institute

of Canterbury for its flexible degree

programme which is delivered using

a blend of online modules, tutorials

and two-week block ‘intensives’ at its

impressive new health training facilities in

central Christchurch.

“It really worked for me as the mother

of a 2-year-old. I was able to learn at my

own pace and schedule it into times that

worked around my family. You need good

support systems around you though - like

people who can pick the kids up if you

can’t, financial and emotional support and

positive energy in your personal life. It’s a

demanding course, so passion and support

are key to getting through the challenging

times.”

Shelley especially liked the practical

focus at Ara. “It’s totally necessary to read

and learn about something, but it makes a

lot more sense when you experience it in

real life. Studying for exams was made a lot

easier because we all had stories from our

practical experiences that we could share

and discuss with each other.”

During her studies, Shelley consistently

achieved excellent grades and gained

exceptional feedback from the midwives

she worked with in clinical practice.

Now a qualified midwife, Shelley is

justifiably proud of what she’s achieved. “I

had never strived for anything academic

in my life before. The fact that I’ve proven

to myself that I can achieve what I put

my mind to has been one of the biggest

personal highlights for me.”

If you’re looking for a new direction,

New primary school likely to

include technology centre

• By Devon Bolger

A NEW Rolleston

primary school is

expected to be the home

of a technology centre for

year 7 and 8 pupils in the

township.

The need for a technology

facility in Rolleston

was initially set out in the

Ministry of Education’s

Canterbury National Education

Growth Plan 2030.

At a meeting today,

district councillors

will vote to approve

rezoning the site, within

the north-eastern corner

of the Acland Park subdivision,

for education

purposes.

In a report which will

be presented at the meeting,

it says the Ministry

of Education is seeking to

establish a primary school

for year 0 to 8 pupils, an

early childhood centre for

about 50 children and a

SELWYN TIMES

specialist hub associated

with a technology centre

for about 130 pupils.

“This hub will serve

contributing schools in

the wider area, catering

principally for year 7-8

students.”

The school will be the

third new primary school

for the area joining West

Rolleston School which

opened in 2016 and

Lemonwood Grove School

which opened in 2017.

An event to showcase local businesses in the

district drew a big crowd in Lincoln on Sunday.

Selwyn Revival organiser and Eden Chiropractic

staff member Jamie Schwass said about

1200 people attended the event which had

entertainment for children such as bouncy castles

and farm animals and gave the 28 businesses an

opportunity to show what they have to offer. The idea behind the event was

to support businesses suffering from the effects of Covid-19. “People came

out, supported local businesses and spent money which is great, that is

what we wanted,” Mr Schwass said.

Pony rides

and bouncy

castles were

just some of the

things on offer

at the Selwyn

Revival event

which aimed to

showcase local

businesses.

Irwell bull sells

for $60,000

• By David Hill

WHAT A difference a day

makes.

Andrew and Anna Laing

admit they were a little

apprehensive about hosting

their annual on-farm

bull sale amid Covid-19

restrictions at their Irwell

farm.

But they need not have

worried as the sale turned

out to be the day New Zealand

moved to level 1 and

one of their sudeley angus

bulls sold for a whopping

$60,000.

“It’s very pleasing. We

didn’t really have any idea

with Covid-19, we didn’t

know what was going to

happen,” Mr Laing said.

“He’s quite

unique, because

he’s nearly

perfect and he

had very good

paperwork,”

he said of the

$60,000 bull.

The bull was

bought by Duncan

Campbell, of

Earnscleugh Station,

in Central Otago.

“To be fair, he’s the one

with excellent phenotype

as well as data, so when

you see him, you’ve got

to get him. His great

phenotype, he’s got muscle

everywhere, beautiful

shouldering, great feet,

he’s put together properly

and he’s got a bit of data

to go with him. He’s really

WORK WILL begin on

the demolition of the

Lincoln Chinese Takeaway

building on Gerald St

tomorrow.

The building is being

removed as the first step

in opening up the retail

area and transforming the

street appeal for the Lincoln

Town Centre upgrade.

The work was due to take

place at the end of March,

but had to be delayed due

to the alert level 4 lockdown.

The demolition is expected

to be completed by

August 7 and cost $52,500.

A traffic management

plan will be in place for the

duration of the demolition

works.

Car parks directly in

front of the building will

also be closed for safety

reasons but pedestrian

access to the adjacent businesses

will still be in place.

Laing said.

“The high-price bulls

today, those guys who

bought these bulls have

been here and seen those

bulls prior to today.”

Overall it had been a

strong season, in spite

of the challenges with

drought and Covid-19, he

said.

“Up until now the results

have been very good in

spite of what everyone has

been through in the last

few months with the negativity

and the pressures

put on and the drought,”

he said.

“Just because they’re

year, they’re not shutting

Foundations in place

for health boost

New dog park for Darfield

Darfield will be getting a new dog park, with an off-leash exercise

area at McHughs Forest Park opening next month.

The fenced area at the southern end of the forest is due to open for

dogs to run and play, on mid-July.

A dog park or off-leash exercise area received strong support

during a public consultation day about future developments of

McHughs Forest Park.

Work on the 275 metre long park began early this year. Fencing is

being installed ahead of the opening and a rubbish bin and drinking

fountain with a dog bowl will also be added.

Access to the park will be provided through gates at the north and

south ends of the exercise area.

McHughs Forest Park will remain as an on-leash area for dogs as

outlined within Council's dog control bylaws.

More than 300 cubic metres of concrete have laid the foundations for a fresh start on health in Selwyn.

The first concrete pour for the floor slab of the new Selwyn Health Hub took place on

Wednesday last week.

Over three hours, 55 concrete trucks poured 330 cubic metres of concrete at the site on Norman

Kirk Drive in Rolleston. It is the first of three concrete pours for the floor slab.

The $14.8 million building will be paid for through commercial investments, which will see rent

from tenants covering the cost of the building.

The Canterbury District Health Board (DHB) has partnered with the Council as the primary

leaseholder, with Pacific Radiology also confirmed.

The hub will comprise a primary birthing unit, plus DHB community health services, a General

Practice, radiology and other community health and social services.

Mayor Sam Broughton says the project is a long-term boost to the district.

“The Selwyn Health Hub will provide new medical services without the need to travel to

Christchurch. It complements existing medical centres and pharmacies and sets us up for the

future growth of the district.”

As Selwyn recovers from the COVID-19 global pandemic, the Selwyn Health Hub and other major

Council infrastructure projects underway across the district will be an important part of the longterm

recovery by creating jobs, and by improving wellbeing and continuing to make Selwyn a

great place to work, live and play, he says.

The building is on track at this stage to be completed in March 2021, when it will be handed over

to the lease holders to fit out, before opening later in the year.

Record demand for building consents

The Council is receiving record numbers of building consent applications, and bookings for onsite

inspections since lockdown.

The Council was receiving an average of around 220 new building consents a month prior to the

COVID-19 Level 4 lockdown, which rapidly increased to 258 applications in May and is well on track to

reach that number again in June.

The consent team has gone from carrying out 1400 building inspections a month, or around 70 a day, to

almost 1600 inspections in May, or around 80 a day. In June the numbers look like they could top 1800

inspections, Council Building Manager Vanessa Mitchell says.

Over 60% of applications have been for new buildings, she says, although a drop in applications is still

expected in the future due to the impacts of the pandemic.

The consents team continued to receive and process consents through all alert levels, with digital and

some on-site inspections able to take place for the start of Level 3.

Staff from Napier City Council have been helping process

applications, but the level of demand means some consent

processing times may be slower than usual, Mrs Mitchell says.

“We’ve been able, at this stage, to keep to our commitment of a

48 hour turnaround from booking to us carrying out inspections.

We’re doing our best to keep up, but people may see some

slippage in the timeframes for code compliance certificates.

“This workload also places our planning team under pressure to

assess district plan compliance and respond to your enquiries as

people contemplate new business ventures and activities.”

Heritage Funding helps preserve

our identity

Preserving our identity and the history that shapes who we are is a

key part of the Council’s Heritage Fund.

The Heritage Fund is open for applications from Wednesday

1 to Wednesday 22 July for projects aimed at supporting the

preservation of heritage buildings or trees in Selwyn.

Louise Deans of Homebush says the fund has been ‘wonderful’

in helping maintain the nine category one listed structures on the

historic farm near Darfield. Looking after the buildings is expensive

and the fund is a key support in maintaining sites of huge value to

the district and its identity, she says.

“We have been extraordinarily grateful for the help it’s given

us. Funding is the only way to keep our heritage alive and well

maintained so we can say, ‘this is our history and who we are’.

They’re our identity long term, because they often last longer than

people and give an enormous amount of pleasure.”

The Heritage Fund has helped the family with restorations of an

earthquake damaged well on the property, servicing a historic

water turbine. The turbine was brought from Dayton, Ohio and

installed in 1879.

“It was the height of the industrial revolution really. You have to

see it to believe it, because it involved an enormous amount of

engineering for the water from the Waianiwaniwa River to be

harnessed to run the turbine.”

The fund had also helped with maintenance of the historic

woolshed, built in 1879 and one of the most well-known heritage

buildings in the country, she said.

To apply for the Selwyn Heritage Fund visit selwyn.govt.nz/heritagefund,

or for more information email heritagefund@selwyn.govt.nz.

Youth helping shape

district’s future

Young people are being given the opportunity to help design one of

Selwyn’s biggest development projects.

The Selwyn Youth Council is carrying out its annual youth survey,

asking young people around the district for their views on a youth

focused space in the new Rolleston Town Centre development.

The third annual ‘What Do YOUth Think?’ survey will see the Youth

Council seeking feedback at high schools in the district and Lincoln

University for what could be included in the area. The survey is also

available online at bit.ly/YOUth2020.

The Council is aiming to make the

new town centre space a place

for everyone, with community as

well as commercial areas. That

includes an area with a focus on

young people, where they have

had a say in the design to make

sure it is a space that will meet

their needs and be a great space

to live and play.

The survey is open to anyone

aged 14–24 years old and living

in the district. Everyone who

completes the survey will go in

the draw to win a Sony Bluetooth

Speaker valued at $79.

As part of our Selwyn Open campaign we’re profiling some of the many excellent businesses local to

you. You can find these businesses on the Selwyn Business Directory at selwyn.govt.nz/directory.

This week we talk to Darfield Village Meats owner Blair Wards.

Blair Wards, had just moved back from America when he saw a butchers in Darfield that was closing.

With 30 years’ experience as a butcher he decided to take a chance.

“The opportunity arose and I thought there was a need for a butcher shop there. It’s probably been

more work than I anticipated,” Blair laughs.

Blair met his wife while playing rugby and league in the states. The family moved to Darfield two and a

half years ago to raise their kids, choosing Selwyn because Blair spent his youth in West Melton.

One of the few butchers in the area, Darfield Village Meats specialise

in home kill where farmers can send their livestock to be processed.

On 1 April Darfield Village Meats would have celebrated a year of

being open, but they were shut because of lockdown.

Supplying the Darfield Food Bank, their Home Kill service, deliveries

during level three and support from the local Selwyn community kept

them going.

The company is active in the community, supporting sports clubs and

events, offering meat discounts and supplying sausages for BBQs.

Blair and his family also support local businesses, which he says is

crucial for the survival of a community.

“If you don’t rally around these local businesses, like the local pubs,

fish and chip shops and bakeries, they’ll just dissolve.”

ON THE

ROADS

On the roads

Tennyson Street is closed from 43 Tennyson Street to Markham Way due to the Rolleston

Town Centre infrastructure upgrade. Due to the Lowes Road and Tennyson Street

Plenty of chores to

do during winter

WINTER AND wet,

sogggy soil is well upon us.

But there are garden

tasks which can be

completed at this time of

year, here are a few ideas:

• The kitchen garden

– Complete preparation of

your vegetable garden, digging

in plenty of compost.

Once this is completed,

sow seeds of carrots,

parsnip, beetroot, silverbeet,

peas, swede and

turnips directly into the

soil. Lettuces, leeks, cabbage,

tomato, capsicum,

courgette, cucumber and

eggplant seeds can be sown

into punnets ready for

transplanting later.

• Transplant summer

vege seedlings – Now

is the time to get your lettuce,

leeks, cabbage, onions

and silverbeet under way.

BOUNTY: It’s also time

to get your tomato

plants in the ground.

Spray with copper oxychloride

to protect young

seedlings from fungus

diseases.

• Fruit trees – New

citrus and fruit trees can

be planted this month.

Feed any existing citrus

trees with citrus fertiliser

to provide them with the

extra nutrients that they

will need over the growing

season.

HARDY:

A new

lawn can

be sown

during

winter, let

the rain

do the

watering.

• Other tasks – Don’t

forget your compost bin

needs turning every couple

of weeks. Paths, if not

already sprayed for slippery

moss and slime, should be

done now.

• Lawns – August is

the best time of the year

for that extra bit of lawn

care, but think about a plan

now for your new lawn.

New lawns can be sown, or

existing ones can be given

a feed with lawn fertiliser.

This should be watered in

well, providing the rain

doesn’t do it for you.

• Houseplants – If its

really too cold and nasty

for you to brave the outdoors,

take a moment to

inspect your houseplants.

Many of them may appreciate

being repotted, or just

fed with Phostrogen.

Remember, if your

plants are in rooms which

are heated or where a

dehumidifier is used, make

sure that they aren’t drying

out, as these conditions

may make them take up

more water than you would

normally expect.

Winter Mini Grooms: Gentle luxurious

pampering in the colder months

Luxe Doggy Day Spa is a boutique dog

groom salon located in Rolleston. Loretta

Lee and her talented groomers have a real

love and respect for dogs and adore doggie

cuddles.

Luxe Doggy Day Spa would like to

thank everyone for being so patient during

lockdown while they got through the

many dogs that needed their grooms.

Loretta (Owner/groomer) and Linda

(Groomer) are excited to introduce

two additional professional trained and

experienced groomers to Luxe, Bronwyn

and Heather, who like everyone working

at Luxe, have a genuine love and care for

all dogs.

During winter Luxe offers mini grooms.

This entails gentle warm bathing using

natural shampoo and conditioner followed

by warm blow drying and brushing.

Nails are clipped and their feet and faces

trimmed. For small dogs the cost is from

$48. “This is a great idea for in-between

grooms to keep length on your dog’s

body during the winter months without

it getting knotty or matted,” says Loretta.

“Matted hair is like a compacted knot that

gets tighter when the hair gets wet. It can

be very uncomfortable

and sometimes painful for

your dog. We genuinely

care about your dog

and want what’s best to

maintain a healthy coat.”

Your dog will be more

content and snuggly

during the colder months

and you will be more likely

to avoid a short shave in

Spring/Summer time.

At Luxe Loretta and

Linda work hard to

maintain their excellent

reputation, as you

can see by the excellent testimonials

and feedback on their website and

popular Facebook page https://www.

facebook.com/LuxeDoggyDaySpa where

photos of Loretta’s gorgeous doggie

clientele are posted alongside glowing

recommendations from their owners.

“These ladies are pure magic… Thanks

for an amazing job every single time Luxe.

Coco loves going there.”

“Loretta was amazing for our wee puppies

first groom. She looks amazing and will

The team

from Luxe

Doggy

Day Spa,

Bronwyn,

Loretta

(Owner),

definitely be back again.”

“We took our pup to Loretta … He smells

so good and looks great!

Luxe Doggy Day Spa provides the

highest possible level of customer service

and warm empathetic professionalism.

Information regarding what’s in a

groom and prices are available at www.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

SELWYN TIMES

Building a Bentley

John describes building his replica 1929

WO Bentley from scratch, as a mammoth

task and prefers not to think of the money

spent on the project so far.

It began five years ago, with it taking 18

months just to source all the parts needed

before John could start building the

Bentley. The car is now almost finished.

The electrics have been completed and the

car starts, though you have to sit on a 20

litre can to drive it.

The Bentley’s chassis (which weighs a

ton) and radiator were imported from

Wales. Both are 1932 Rolls Royce parts.

“When Bentley Motors went broke

Rolls Royce took them over and put Rolls

Royce parts on the Bentley’s 1920s chassis,”

advises John.

The Wall Street stock market crash in

1929 had left Bentley Motors unable to

meet its mortgage payments. Receivers

were appointed and the company was sold

with the successful bidder being Rolls-

Royce Limited.

John imported parts for his Bentley from

all around the world.

“The front mudguards came from

Sweden and cost half the price of what I’d

have had to pay, if they’d been made in

New Zealand. The tyres came from Los

Angeles and the gearbox from the Luxury

Junk Yard in South Carolina, in the United

States,” explains John.

Many more parts were sourced from

around New Zealand. The bonnet and

fuel tank were manufactured in Timaru,

where the glass was also fitted into the

windscreen supplied by John. A Mark 6

4.2 litre has been fitted into the car due

to an original Bentley motor having an

extremely high price tag, if one could be

found.

John built all the body frame from

ash timber, which he says he acquired

for a good price. This was covered with

aluminium sheeting then 4mm thick foam

rubber. Imitation leather in the British

racing green colour was fitted to the

exterior.

John paid $750 for a bonnet then found

it would not fit as it was too flimsy. He

found it needed double aluminium. He

had to knock a bulge in one part of the

bonnet to fit in an air cleaner.

“No one told me, when aluminium is too

hot you can burn a hole in it,” laughs John.

John is still working on the Bentley’s

interior. He has made the front seat and

these are now away being upholstered.

“I like doing the woodwork so I make

the frame for them to upholster,” says

John.

When the Bentley is finished, John and

his wife Val, want to take it to rallies and

special car events. This impressive vehicle

is sure to attract considerable interest.

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

Mobile windscreen repairs

Windscreen chips, cracks and breaks can be a real

inconvenience, especially if you need to take your

vehicle in for repairs.

Smaller chips may be ignored yet when moisture

and dirt gets into a windscreen chip, it is harder for

a clean repair to be carried out, which could result

in the need for a completely new windscreen.

The size of a windscreen chip can make a

difference too. Adrian Huisman from Windscreen

Solutions says it not only depends on the size of

a chip but also where it is on the windscreen. For

example, a chip in line with the steering wheel could

result in a vehicle failing its Warrant of Fitness

check.

After 20 years’ experience in the industry,

Adrian established Windscreen Solutions, a

mobile windscreen repair and replacement service.

Over the last four and a half years, the company

has become recognised for its expertise and

professionalism.

Adrian repairs chips and cracks on windscreens,

and fits replacement windscreens, taking the time to

find the best and most affordable solution for each

vehicle and customer.

Windscreen Solutions carries out insurance work

as well as jobs for individual customers.

“With chip repairs starting at $70 plus GST, it may

be better to avoid making an insurance claim and

organise the repairs yourself instead, especially if

there is no free glass cover, the excess is high, or a

no claims bonus might be lost,” suggests Adrian.

Adrian carries a wide range of windscreens,

suitable for cars, vans, motorhomes, caravans, trucks

of all sizes, and agricultural machinery.

“Anything that moves and has glass in it, we can

sort the problem,” advises Adrian.

He reminds that at this time of the year, it is also

a good idea to check the caravan or motorhome

for leaks around the windows, especially where

the rubber is beginning to perish. Skylights in

particular, can be prone to leaking. This is especially

important with older timber framed caravans, as a

leak can cause considerable structural damage and

jeopardise the integrity of the caravan.

Adrian has rubbers to suit most makes and model

of caravan or motorhome and will fit them so they

are nice and tight.

Windscreen Solutions offers a flexible windscreen

repair and installation service, with a smile, and to

your door. With little in the way of overheads, you

will find their prices extremely competitive.

Adrian is known for going the extra mile for

his customers, working a little after hours or on a

Saturday morning to fit in with a client. He lives and

works locally, supporting locals throughout Selwyn.

You may even see the Windscreen Solutions van in

Ashburton, Methven or Kaikoura.

If you need a windscreen repaired or replaced,

give Adrian a call on 021 399 917, email info@

windscreensolutions.co.nz, or make contact via his

website: www.windscreensolutions.co.nz.

Superb location, subdividable + irrigation consent

A property of aesthetic appeal, that has the enviable

composition of having 8ha of subdividable land complete

with irrigation rights, a rarity in a property within such an easy

commute to the city, airport and motorways.

The striking family home with a floor area in excess of 350m²

is placed on an enviable and very desirable established garden

setting of mature trees and plantings, and offers an inground

salt water swimming pool, and asphalt tennis court.

Outbuildings and its associated infrastructure are of a quality

and presentation often sought and rarely found, making this a

property likely to be the envy of many. Clad and constructed to

blend in union with the main homestead is the triple car garage

and separate spacious studio/workshop.

Extra outbuildings include a three bay fully enclosed implement

shed, (which could be used for a further three car garage), and

a large 148m² storage shed with a fully enclosed extra length

bay with a higher stud, ideal for the camper, boat or helicopter.

Attached to this are two further open bays.

The property is exceptionally well maintained and presented to

a high standard. Fenced into eight paddocks with good quality

fencing, the property offers a water race at the boundary, duck

pond, cattle yards and its own woodlot.

The lower level of the home offers three good sized double

bedrooms, a luxurious family bathroom, separate toilet and good

size laundry. The living spaces are all generously proportioned with

the open plan kitchen and dining area being complemented further

by the large living space, conservatory and second living space

currently utilised as an office space.

The second floor designates itself to the master wing spanning the

width of the building with a gorgeous balcony enjoying the vista

over the property toward the alps. Supported by a walk-in robe

and ensuite bathroom this is an opulent space and an ideal place to

retreat at the end of the day.

The desirable location will make this one of the larger blocks of land

available on the market within such an easy commute to the city.

Disclosure rules

when selling a home

Real estate advertisements are designed

to make every property look like a dream

buy. That’s why they gloss over the negative

aspects and linger on the good points,

wanting you to be drawn in by the sundrenched

location rather than be put off by

lack of garaging. It’s no crime to gloss over

a property’s quirks, but lying by omission

or design about more serious matters is

not allowed. If you do this when selling

your property you may be at risk of being

sued by the purchaser.

When you’re ready to sell your property

it’s a good idea to get legal advice about

your obligations before you sign an agency

agreement. Most of these agreements,

which set out the terms and conditions

of your contract with the real estate

agent, require you to confirm that you are

unaware of any undisclosed defects in the

property and that you haven’t withheld any

information about it.

As a seller, you must also confirm

that your property has all the necessary

consents and code compliance certificates

for any building work. Any outstanding

consents, including ones that involve any

works at a neighbour’s property, should be

disclosed to the agent.

This is important for several reasons.

Licensed real estate agents have clear

obligations when it comes to disclosure.

They must not mislead a seller or

a potential buyer, or withhold any

information. While it’s not up to the

agent to uncover any hidden defects in a

property, they must tell any prospective

buyers what they know.

Under the Real Estate Agents Act 2008,

if licensed real estate agents suspect that a

property may have a defect then they are

obliged to ask the seller about it, or advise

potential buyers of any risks. For example,

if a property is next door to a proposed

new development, or if it’s in an area that’s

been subject to flooding, the agent must

tell prospective buyers rather than turning

a blind eye.

If your property may be prone to

weathertightness issues thanks to its

age or cladding, then the agent may

have to disclose this potential risk to

prospective buyers. If it doesn’t have any

weathertightness problems it may be

worth getting this confirmed in an expert

report by a qualified building inspector

who has professional indemnity insurance,

understands the strict legal requirements

of their role and carries out their work

in accordance with the New Zealand

Property Inspection Standard. This will

help make the sale process as efficient as

possible.

If you know there are issues with the

property, whether it’s something small like

a garage door not working properly, or a

bigger deal like an unconsented deck, it’s

best to discuss them with the agent you are

working with. They can help you decide

how to manage the problem, whether that

means fixing it, or disclosing it to potential

buyers. However, a licensed real estate

agent must not disclose any problems with

your property to buyers without getting

your consent first. If a seller doesn’t agree

on a disclosure, the agent is required to

stop working for them rather than disclose

any defects without consent.

These rules offer more protection to

buyers than the traditional attitude of

‘caveat emptor’ (buyer beware), which

assumed that the seller would always

know more than the buyer and any sale

was at the buyer’s risk. However, buyers

should always do their own research

about a property before signing a sale

and purchase agreement. Buyers should

also ask the agent about anything they are

concerned about, no matter how trivial it

may seem. It’s far better to get an answer

upfront than find out when it’s too late.

Should you sell

your house in

winter?

Selling a property in winter may seem to go against received wisdom,

but there are plenty of reasons why it can be a good idea.

It’s hard to ignore powerful or compelling

reasons like a change in your work, financial

or family circumstances, or because the

timing seems right. In addition, there are

several other, more tangible upsides to

selling in winter.

Firstly, there are often fewer houses on

the market so there’s less competition. Your

property is less likely to be lost in a swarm

of listings and it will be easy to make it stand

out. People who are looking to buy at this

time of year are usually highly motivated

because they need a home sooner rather

than later. The upside of this is that you may

get fewer ‘tyre-kickers’ than in the warmer

months – and increased demand will often

result in higher prices.

If you’re selling your property with a

real estate agent, you need to mine their

experience. When you’re choosing an agent,

ask them how houses in your area sell over

the colder months. It’s in their interests

to make sure the sale of your property is

as advantageous as possible; if they think

you’ll be better off waiting a couple of

months, they should tell you. They should

also work with you to work out the best

times to hold open homes or viewings,

taking in account shorter sunlight hours.

You want your property to look attractive,

inviting and easy to look after – and there

are plenty of practical steps you can take

to make it seem an attractive proposition

on a cold winter’s day. Now’s the time to

fix any leaks, cracked windows or sticking

doors or broken drains. All the usual rules

for preparing a home for sale will apply -

your buzzwords should be decluttering and

deep-cleaning. If it has good insulation

and an efficient heating system, make sure

these factors are included in any marketing.

Ensure the house is warm and dry during

any viewings.

Don’t forget that people will want to

look around the outdoor areas too -

sweep or waterblast paths, mulch garden

beds and clear gutters. If your garden is

picture-perfect in summer and spring,

consider making some photos available so

prospective buyers can see what they’ve got

to look forward to. A few colourful plants in

pots will also help brighten outdoor spaces

and a new letterbox or freshly painted front

fence or gate will do wonders for your

property’s street appeal.

Prepare well and there’s no reason why

you can’t successfully sell your property

before the weather warms up. Sell now and

you’ll hopefully have lots of properties to

choose from when you start scanning the

market in spring.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Luxury plus

If you like a little luxury you will love Hallmark

Homes’ new Te Whāriki showhome. All 265sqm are

packed with ideas for how to create a sumptuous yet

liveable home.

Generous family living is to the fore. There

is a separate lounge/media room, large family

living area, and outdoor room which adds a new

dimension to the concept of indoor/outdoor living.

Sliders also lead from the family living space to a

hardwood deck and lawn; an area also accessible

from the master bedroom.

Able to be fully enclosed, the outdoor room boasts

a television, kitchenette, beer fridge and heating,

making it perfect for entertaining or as a man cave

for a night watching sport. With a water feature in

the garden nearby, it is also a great place to relax.

A computer nook sits off from the kitchen.

The latter has a double oven, induction cooktop

and Caesar stone bench top. At the other end

of the kitchen is an open pantry, complete with

refrigerator, cabinetry and second sink to offer a less

public place for food preparation. An end window

and skylights allow plenty of light in this space

during the day.

The master bedroom is sited away from the other

three bedrooms, affording privacy while being an

ideal design option when teenagers or young adults

live in the home or when guests stay. Setting off this

room is a three dimensional headboard and large

‘his and hers’ walk-in robe. The ensuite boasts a

spacious walk-in shower with rain water showerhead

and extra-long designer vanity.

In the main bathroom, a skylight window above

the freestanding bath (staged on a plinth) allows for

a little star gazing. Designer Italian tiles on the wall

behind the bath adds to the room’s plush setting.

The home has separate toilet and laundry, the

latter creating a pathway through to the double

garage. Full height storage cupboards are sited on

one side of this room with cabinetry and spaces for

washing machine and dryer opposite.

The stud height throughout the home is 2.55

metres. It includes a vaulted ceiling in the dining/

family area; cathedral ceiling in the main lounge;

raked ceilings in the outdoor living room where

Velux skylights ensure lots of light; and a raked

ceiling in the entryway where strip lighting is

merged into the black beams of the cedar clad

ceiling.

The home has Google Nest, allowing electronic

componentry like the motorised curtains, heating

and alarm system to be remotely controlled.

A mix of textured plaster cladding, Linea oblique

and Marco Corona Italian tiles give this home a

commanding street appeal.

Hallmark Homes’ latest Selwyn showhome is
