RESIDENTS SAY IT’S BULLY BOY TACTICS

Fulton Hogan appeals

quarry conditions

• By Devon Bolger

FULTON Hogan’s bid to

change some of the conditions

it will operate its controversial

quarry near Weedons under has

been described as “bully boy

tactics.”

The roading company wants

to appeal parts of the resource

consent it was granted by

Environment Canterbury and the

district council.

One of the conditions Fulton

Hogan is appealing is that once a

year ECan may serve notice of its

intention to review the conditions

of these consents for the purposes

of off-setting or compensating

for any adverse effects on human

health arising from suspended

particulate matter generated by

quarry activities.

The company says the condition

is unreasonable and it is difficult

to envisage what kind of health

effect is being referred to and how

it could be off-set.

DOES FULTON Hogan

want to be a good corporate

citizen over the controversial

Roydon Quarry?

If our page 1 article today is

anything to go by probably not.

Fulton Hogan was granted

resource consent to develop

the quarry in an area which

will be close to where people

live. Who wants a dusty,

noisy and truck-busy quarry

near them?

Fulton Hogan argued the

impact of the quarry would

not be as bad as the residents

opposing it said it would

be. Conditions were placed

on the resource consent to

mitigate what lies ahead for

residents.

But now the contracting

giant is appealing some of

those conditions, putting

more pressure on residents

who are also appealing the

original decision.

Why should we be

surprised?

Residents angry over

dumped rubbish across district

• By Devon Bolger

DUMPED RUBBISH across the

district is angering residents who

say they are fed up with people

destroying the landscape.

District council regulatory

manager Billy Charlton said 95

notifications of dumped rubbish

in a public place have been

received since January.

“When council receives a

report of rubbish being dumped

it is always cleared as soon as

possible by our contractors.”

Mr Charlton said 18 instances

have been investigated this year

and eight infringement notices

have been issued with fines

totaling $2650.

Springston resident Gail

Route said she is appalled at

the amount of litter she comes

across on her regular bike rides.

“It is mainly fast food takeaway

packaging, disposable coffee

and soft drink cups, glass beer

bottles and plastic bottles.

“I have been living in

Springston for 10 years and I’m

just getting fed up with all the

rubbish.”

Ms Route said the rubbish

appears to be coming from

vehicles.

“Where I cycle it is too far for

people to walk so quite obviously

it is people chucking litter from

their cars.”

She has stopped picking up the

rubbish because there is just too

much.

“I did get in touch with the

council and they said they did

send somebody out to clean up

but I can’t tell if they’ve actually

done that or if more litter has

appeared.”

Ms Route would like to see

more roadside and television

advertising asking people to dispose

of their rubbish properly.

•HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you

think rubbish dumping is a

problem in the district? Email

devon.bolger@starmedia.kiwi

“It can’t be good for the wildlife,

native birds and things like

that. The material also might get

broken down and leech into the

ground.”

Rolleston resident Siena

Turner says she is also sick of

rubbish dumping in the district,

especially along Dunns Crossing

Rd.

Route on a bike

She said she was on a walk

with her family last week when

she came across a pile of rubbish

with more than 50 wrappers and

bottles.

“I was infuriated at this. It

makes me angry because people

are destroying the rural, green

and fresh landscape of Dunns

Crossing Rd.

“I’d like to ask the public,

keep this lovely district

clean because owners of the

properties shouldn’t be picking

up someone else’s mess,” she

said.

Voters know what parties they want;

The general election

is nine weeks away.

National has always held

sway in Selwyn, and

has a new electorate

candidate in Nicola

Grigg. Reporter Devon

Bolger tests the pulse of

the district

POLITICAL opinions in the

district appear to be quite varied.

Outside of the Countdown

supermarket in Rolleston, Alice

Tang was in a hurry to pick up

her groceries but said she was

happy to spare a few moments to

talk politics.

She has been living in Rolleston

since 2012.

“I feel like we don’t have a solid

plan to deal with the economy.

We are facing a really big crisis

and need a long-term plan.”

Ms Tang said she will be giving

her vote to Act.

“That is purely because I know

Labour and National have their

supporters but I would like to see

a different party get a chance to

show what they can do.”

She said she did not know

enough about cannabis use or

the upcoming referendum to offer

an opinion.

Alice Tang

“I think it requires a lot more

research and planning but I’m

not opposed to it,” she said.

Ms Tang knew the National

candidate for Selwyn was Nicola

Grigg, but not the other candidates.

Further along, Edgar Caisip

had stopped to roll a cigarette

after going to The Warehouse.

He said if the polls were to

open next week, he would be

voting for Labour.

“I think they are working for

the country. The pandemic has

been quite crazy.”

Mr Caisip said he was “dead

against’’ legalising cannabis but

in favour of euthanasia.

He did not know who the candidates

were for Selwyn.

Along Rolleston Drive, Martin

Perry was out for a walk to the

New World supermarket.

Lena Atger

He said he thinks the cannabis

referendum is a major issue this

election.

“I am really torn about it

because I would vote yes for medicinal

use, absolutely, but I am

just not too sure about personal

use. I think it contradicts what

the Government is trying to

achieve with going smoke-free.”

Mr Perry said normally he

would vote for National but he

is unsure after recent incidents

such as the Covid-19 patient data

leak.

“It is a tricky one for me. I will

have to see how I feel closer to

the time.”

He did not know any of the

candidates, saying: “All I know

is Amy Adams but I think she is

retiring.”

Mr Perry said he disagreed

with euthanasia for religious

reasons and would be voting no

at the referendum.

In the Faringdon subdivision

in Rolleston, Lena Atger was

gardening in her front lawn.

She agreed to stop for a quick

chat and seemed excited about a

political discussion.

Ms Atger lives and works in

the district. She has been there

for about 10 years.

She would definitely not be

voting for National but would

have to do more research before

deciding where her vote would

go.

“I don’t know much about the

guy they have elected as leader

now. I also don’t know any of

their policies at all.”

Ms Atger said she would be

voting no for the legalisation of

cannabis and was unsure how

she would vote on the euthanasia

bill.

opinion divided on two referendums

“I don’t know any of the candidates

here. I couldn’t even tell

you one, which is bad I know.”

Heading east, Prebbleton resident

Anderson Webb was walking

his dog along Tosswill Rd.

He said he would be voting for

National this year.

“That is who I voted for last

time as well.”

Mr Webb said he thought the

legalisation of cannabis was a

major issue in the upcoming election.

“I will be voting yes. I don’t

really have an opinion on euthanasia.”

He said Nicola Grigg was the

only candidate he knew of.

A short time later in Lincoln,

Howard Paterson was waiting to

catch the bus outside the library

along Gerald St.

“It is hard to say what the major

issues are but I think the recovery

from Covid-19 will be key for the

country going forward.”

Mr Paterson said if the polls

were to open next week he would

be voting for Labour.

“The National Party has had

some bad days. Namely with

the recent leaking incident with

Michelle Boag,” he says of the

Covid patient list leaked to the

news media.

He was unsure of who the candidates

for the electorate are.

Strolling through Lincoln’s

Liffey Domain were David and

Lynne Montgomery.

They both also thought the

recovery from Covid-19 would be

a major issue.

Mr Montgomery joked that

footpaths are another issue which

will cause much debate.

When asked who they would

vote for, Mrs Montgomery said

Labour and Mr Montgomery said

National.

“It doesn’t matter that we don’t

agree,” Mrs Montgomery said.

Neither of the couple was in

favour of legalising cannabis.

Mrs Montgomery said she

thinks Labour is likely to win.

“It varies when you ask but at

the moment I think it’s Labour. I

don’t think National has the right

guy as leader.”

Artemio Mendoza-Mendoza

was waiting for the bus at the

stop near The Famous Grouse

Hotel on Gerald St with his sixyear-old

son Santiago.

Mr Mendoza-Mendoza said he

thinks Labour is doing a good job

with the recovery from Covid-19

PROUD:

Mendoza,

with his son

Santiago

Nieto, said

and would be voting for them.

“It is going to be difficult

to decide when to open the

borders and I think the good

work that has been done has to

continue.”

He would be voting yes on the

cannabis and euthanasia referendums.

“I think legalising cannabis is a

good idea. The medicinal properties

are very good.”

Real estate agent Stu Jones was

taking a stroll through the Preston

Downs subdivision in West

Melton.

Claims of a tit-for-tat

Stu Jones

•From page 5

Mr Jones said he would be voting

in favour of euthanasia but no

on the cannabis referendum.

“This time last year, I would

have been a yes but after going

to Canada and seeing people

smoking cannabis on the street,

I thought well that’s not exactly

what I had in mind.”

Mr Jones said it is too early to

tell who will win the election but

it will be close.

Mark Exton was on his way to

get some groceries at the West

Melton Village shopping centre.

He said he had a few moments to

chat before he had to rush off.

“I will be voting for the

National Party. I express a preference

based on historical policies I

have seen.”

Mr Exton said he thinks a major

issue is tourism and the idea

of keeping the country productive

Mark Exton

Henry King

‘It will be close’

and keeping the economy going.

He said he would vote yes on

both the cannabis and euthanasia

referendums.

“If cannabis is controlled then

yes but there will always be

people who abuse that.”

He had no idea of the MP

candidates this year but said the

name Nicola rung a bell.

After travelling further down

West Coast Rd to Darfield, Henry

King was in his driveway on

South Terrace.

He said his vote would be going

to Act this election after voting

for the National Party in the last

election.

“I think a major issue facing

our country is obviously how we

will recover from Covid-19.”

He said he would be voting

yes to legalise cannabis and

euthanasia and did not know the

names of any of the candidates.

• From page 1

The decision – which granted

consent for the quarry for 35

years – imposed a number of

conditions, including setting up

a dust management plan, truck

movements limited to 1200 a day

and no work can take place at

night during the quarry’s first five

years.

A long time quarry

opponent, Weedons

resident Simon Moore

said: “It is just a bit of

bully boy tactics. Fulton

Hogan publicly stated

how pleased they were

with the conditions and

then as soon as somebody

appeals they come

out and say they aren’t

happy.

“They are just contradicting

themselves.”

Fulton Hogan’s appeal comes

after Weedons resident Stephen

Bain’s bid to overturn the resource

consent granted to operate

the quarry.

Mr Bain is seeking public

support to fund an appeal to the

Environment Court to stop it.

He and Mr Moore believe

Fulton Hogan’s own appeal is a

tit-for-tat response.

Said Mr Bain: “I think it was

a strategic move that they have

made because of my appeal. I

Simon

Moore

don’t think they were going to

do it until they saw other people

were appealing.

“I was very surprised because

the extension to appeal was only

granted 24 hours before the

initial appeal period closed so it

didn’t seem like they planned on

appealing.”

The Christchurch City Council

has also got involved.

At a meeting last Thursday

it decided to become a

party to proceedings to try

and stop the conditions of

the resource consent being

changed.

It has until Monday to

lodge the necessary paperwork.

Then it may be able

to present submissions and

evidence at a subsequent

hearing.

Fulton Hogan is appealing

these conditions:

•Depositing clean fill is only

allowed between 6-8pm Monday

to Saturday. Fulton Hogan wants

it changed so the activity can occur

during evenings, night time

and Sundays.

• Heavy vehicle movements

leaving or accessing the quarry

need to use the direct route

comprising State Highway 1,

Jones and Dawsons Rds. Fulton

Hogan wants it changed so it just

has to take all practicable steps

to ensure the vehicles associated

with the quarry do not travel on

those roads.

• Loaded heavy vehicles

arriving at the site must have

their load covered. Fulton

Hogan wants this condition

removed.

• Heavy vehicles with aggregate

or other quarry material

leaving the site must cover their

load and have it dampened with

water spray. Fulton Hogan wants

it changed so that the vehicles

must either cover their load or

have it dampened.

• Once a year ECan may

serve notice of its intention to

review the conditions of these

consents for the purposes of

(amongst other things) “offsetting

or compensating for

any adverse effects on human

health arising from suspended

particulate matter (including

dust and respirable crystalline

silica) generated by quarry

activities.” Fulton Hogan

seeks the removal of the subparagraph

completely.

• Six dust monitoring devices

are to be installed prior to quarry

activities occurring and during

operations. Fulton Hogan wants

it changed to require one permanent,

regulatory certified monitor

and four calibrated, mobile

monitors.

ADVERTORIAL

Free gifts on

opening day!

• Prior to the start of

quarrying, the consent

holder must design and

implement a Respirable

Crystalline Silica monitoring

programme in consultation

with the Canterbury

District Health Board

and ECan and prepare a

report on the results of

the 12-month programme

within one month of

its completion. Fulton

Hogan is proposing two,

4-month-long monitoring

campaigns rather than one

12-month campaign.

• Quarry activities

(except dust suppression

measures) within 250m

of a sensitive receptor

location must not be

undertaken when the wind

direction places quarry

activities directly upwind

of the sensitive receptor

location and the wind

speed reaches or exceeds 7

m/s. Fulton Hogan wants

it changed so only a subset

of the activities that may

occur on-site are required

to stop under certain meteorological

conditions.

• It must take all reasonably

practicable measures

to minimise the discharge

of dust from quarry activities

which include ensuring

trucks leaving the site

with loads of fine material

and trucks entering the

site with loads of clean fill

are covered. Fulton Hogan

wants it changed so that

trucks can alternatively

pass under a water spray

boom.

• Should the ability to

take water cease at any

time, the consent holder

must cease quarry activities

requiring water usage

to manage dust. Fulton

Hogan wants it changed

so the company will assess

the need to temporarily

cease some or all parts of

operations itself.

• Excavation of aggregate

and deposition of clean fill

must only occur where the

quarry floor maintains at

least 1m separation depth

to groundwater. Fulton

Hogan is seeking a minor

change so that permissible

excavation depths are defined

by reference to an RL

level, as opposed to metres

below ground level.

• Should the groundwater

level increase so that

the separation is less than

1m between the measured

groundwater levels and

the current ground level

within the active quarry

floor quarry site, Fulton

Hogan must apply virgin

materials to that area, so as

to reestablish a 1m separation

distance throughout

the site. Fulton Hogan

wants it changed to include

that this requirement does

not apply to any areas

which have already been

rehabilitated;

• If the results of the

second groundwater

samples show an

exceedance of the trigger

concentrations, the consent

holder must sample all

domestic wells within

500m downgradient of

the affected bore. If any

domestic bore sample

reveals an adverse effect

on drinking-water quality,

then the consent holder

must either provide

the well user with an

alternative supply of

potable water, provide

an appropriate water

treatment system, or install

a deeper well for the user.

Fulton Hogan wants it

changed to state that the

exceedance must be more

than likely attributable to

the quarrying operations.

passionate about helping women

to find the correct fitting bra. Lisa

says, ‘I know what an uncomfortable

bra is like. When I was fitted with

the Beauty Bra I couldn’t believe

how comfortable I felt. It helped to

relieve my upper back pain because

the Beauty Bra fits properly and I

am securely supported. I don’t need

under wires for support because of

the Beauty Bra’s inbuilt shelf.’

‘Lisa has been thoroughly trained

and I know the ladies will feel at ease

with her,’ Esther says. ‘She has a kind

and gentle approach.’

The Beauty Bra is a healthy bra.

No under wires to impede lymphatic

drainage; no stretch straps; no

shoulder strap pull and no flattening

of the breast tissue. Your bust is

supported from beneath by the

cleverly concealed, inbuilt shelf.

There is very little weight on the

shoulders at all. That fact alone can

help to relieve back and shoulder

pain. All the Beauty Bra offers is

amazing comfort and support.

Lisa says, ‘We have over 200

hundred size combinations. That

allows us to fit to practically every

figure type. Plus we find they last

three times longer than your average

bra.’

Another garment in the range is

the Beauty Tummy Support. This

brilliant garment supports, protects

and gently lifts the abdomen after

surgery. Can also relieve hernia

conditions and eases strain after

childbirth. It is also used as gentle

tummy control.

For those women who love firm

shape wear check out our Beauty

Figure Control. Fabulous contouring

and gives a great look no matter what

the view. Pair it with the Beauty

Waist Trimmer and the Beauty Bra to

give you a lovely smooth silhouette.

All fittings are personal and private

from Lisa’s home in Prebbleton.

Beauty Bra is opening on Tuesday,

21 July. Women who book for a free,

no obligation fitting on that day will

receive free gifts with any purchases.

Spaces are extremely limited so book

early to avoid being disappointed.

Waste facility

application to go

straight to

Environment Court

• By Devon Bolger

A CONTROVERSIAL application

to expand a waste facility near

Prebbleton has been approved to go

straight to the Environment Court.

Last month, Waste Management

Ltd applied to have its resource consent

application to expand its site at

305 Marshs Rd bypass the council

hearing process.

Said an ECan spokeswoman:

“Council has 20 working days

to complete a report on the application,

including addressing any

issues; suggested conditions that

should be imposed if the consent

was granted; and provide a summary

of submissions.”

Waste Management Ltd will then

make a final decision to proceed

or not directly to the Environment

Court.

One of the reasons the company

gave for wanting to refer the matter

to the Environment Court is likely

appeals on the application.

“The application is contentious. It

has already generated considerable

community and media attention

including public meetings.

“The significant public interest

raises the real likelihood of appeals

and for that reason alone the

application should be directly

referred to the Environment Court.”

Prostate cancer support group

• By Devon Bolger

WHEN CHRIS Ward was

diagnosed with prostate

cancer in 2018 he learned the

importance of a strong support

system.

The 70-year-old Lincoln

resident decided it was time the

district had a dedicated support

group for men also suffering

from prostate cancer.

With the help of his wife

Dianne he started the group in

February last year.

They meet on every fourth

Wednesday of the month at the

Lincoln Event Centre.

It has 40 members on its

books and about 25 to 30 men

typically attend the meetings.

Said Mr Ward: “After I began

treatment I went to a support

group meeting in Christchurch

and I found that very valuable.

It was great to go along and talk

to other people with common

issues.

“Out here in Selwyn, I figured

there is quite a population of

people and one in eight is the

general strike rate for prostate

cancer so I thought there could

be a lot of people out here who

can benefit from some support

too.”

Mr Ward said he approached

the Prostate Cancer Foundation

about wanting to start the group

and they were very supportive.

The group attracts people

from across the district with

members from Darfield,

Rolleston, Leeston, Lincoln and

Prebbleton.

The meetings consist of a

sharing session for the men to

open up about their struggles

and sometimes guest speakers.

“We also have physios too.

They have a very pressing part to

play, they can offer a lot of help

so they came along and shared

what they can do for us.”

About 18 months ago members

of the group started to take

part in a pilot programme called

Prost-FIT.

It is a fitness group run by

Exercise As Medicine NZ which

includes elements of

cardio, resistance, boxing and

other modalities to improve

strength, balance and stamina.

“That has been extremely successful

for us and the Prostate

Cancer Foundation is looking to

expand the programme across

the country.”

Mr Ward said things are

looking positive for his health

as his two-year check-up in May

Selwyn Sounds

Rocker to sing from extensive back catalogue

• By Matt Slaughter

WHEN JON Stevens’ song

Jezebel reached number one on

the New Zealand charts in 1979,

a career in music wasn’t on his

mind.

Said Stevens: “I made a record

when I was 16, it came out when

I was 17, which was Jezebel. It

was released and three weeks

later it was No 1 and all of a

sudden, I was famous in New

Zealand.

“It [music] was something

that I didn’t pursue at all, it

was like a happy accident

actually because it wasn’t

something I was actually into

doing,” he said.

But Stevens, who is entertainer

Frankie Stevens’ brother,

couldn’t stay away from music,

and more than four decades

later, he is set to headline Selwyn

Sounds on March 6 at Lincoln

Domain.

Jon Stevens is best known

for being the lead singer of

Noiseworks. He was also lead

singer of legendary Australian

band INXS for four years after

former frontman Michael

Hutchence died.

The Selwyn Sounds crowd can

expect Stevens to belt out a set

of hits from both of these bands

when he takes the stage.

Said Stevens: “I’ve got a

pretty good setlist going with,

obviously, both bands’ songs.

You can’t please everybody, but

nobody’s disappointed ever.

“It’s just hit after hit, you

know,” he said.

Stevens said these hits will

include INXS songs Need You

Tonight, Don’t Change and

Suicide Blonde and Noiseworks’

Hot Chilli Woman.

Stevens fronted INXS in the

early 2000s after Hutchence’s

death in 1997 and toured with

the band for four years.

“When I joined INXS, it was

just one of those things where it

seemed like a perfectly natural

fit and it was, and it’s something

that I know, and we all knew,

Michael would have been more

than happy for me to do because

we were compadres.”

Stevens said he and Hutchence

had “mutual admiration” for

ROCKING OUT:

Jon Stevens will

be performing

a set including

songs from

Noiseworks

and INXS at

Selwyn Sounds

on March 6.

The Lady Killers

will also be

performing. ​

each other.

“He [Hutchence] was a very

warm and engaging fellow. He

was a lovely bloke [with] charisma

to burn. One thing people didn’t

realise about Michael was he had

a really, really big voice, it was

really so loud.

“Because his subtlety in his

lower register was just incredible

and his tone was incredible,

when he jumped up an octave

and started belting it out, it was

just like, man, so full-on, and

that’s probably a big part of his

magic,” he said.

Stevens is looking forward

to the Selwyn Sounds crowd

hearing his spin on the INXS

songs and said he has the band’s

blessing to perform them.

Some of Stevens’ best career

memories have been playing

shows with artists including

Elton John, Aerosmith and Slash

and performing at venues such

as Madison Square Garden in

New York and Wembley Stadium

in London.

He said he is looking forward

to seeing the huge Kiwi lineup

set to take the stage at Selwyn

Sounds and his highlights will be

seeing Stan Walker, The Jordan

Luck Band, The Lady Killers and

Annie Crummer.

Liffey southern

walkway opens

The banks of the Liffey have taken on a new look along a popular lockdown walking route in Lincoln.

A new 450 metre walkway along the Liffey Stream between Southfield Drive and Jimmy Adams

Terrace was officially opened last week, after the last of more than 3400 plants was planted along

the route.

It completes walkway links from the Lincoln town centre to the wetlands and restores a previously

overgrown section of the Liffey, Council Land Development Project Manager Phillip Millar says.

Contractors worked hard to have the walkway ready for use the day before the Level 4 Lockdown.

Councillor Grant Miller says the walkway proved popular during the lockdown.

“People were coming to use the walkway from other townships nearby because they loved it that

much, which gives you an idea of the quality of work that has gone on here.”

Final planting and landscaping was finished once restrictions were relaxed.

Pupils from the neighbouring Ararira Springs Primary and Lincoln University students helped plant

2600 native trees and plants, working alongside contractors Burnside Contracting, McLenaghan

Contracting and Natural Habitats.

Some existing plants and trees have been retained to blend with the native species supporting the

stream’s vibrant population of native fish and birds, Council Biodiversity Officer Andy Spanton says.

“We’re trying to do it in a way that it will look like what you would have found here 200 years ago.”

Tennyson Street reopens

The newly upgraded section of Tennyson Street through the Rolleston Town Centre has reopened.

Work began in January to upgrade the road to a people-friendly high street, with wider pavements, fresh

planting, seating, landscaping and lighting. Infrastructure for the town centre development is also being

installed. Landscaping and infrastructure work is ongoing and the temporary Markham Way extension

will remain in place for now.

Tennyson Street from the intersection with Rolleston Drive to the northern end of Rolleston Reserve is a

30kmh speed limit to encourage pedestrian and cycle use.

A community day is being planned by businesses in the area for Friday 24 July to celebrate the

reopening on the street.

The work on Tennyson Street is a first step for the new Rolleston Town Centre. It will act as the new

town centre’s spine, with a lively mix of retail, entertainment and community spaces, anchored by Te

Ara Ātea and a town square.

Flying end to Matariki and school holidays

Families are being invited to take part in a fun, flying end to Matariki and the school holidays.

Darfield School international students, Glentunnel School pupils, Lincoln Envirotown, the Two Rivers

Trust and the Council have all banded together to support the Selwyn Kite Day.

The making and flying of manu tukutuku (kites) is a traditional part of Māori celebrations for Matariki.

Kite making is an important part of celebrations in many cultures. For Matariki celebrations this year the

Council has joined with community groups and schools, embracing the multicultural love of kites, with

videos showing families how to make kites at little or no cost.

Darfield High School international students from Japan, Thailand

and Germany have worked with Lincoln Envirotown to create a

video with instructions on how to make a kite out of bamboo canes

and repurposed plastic bags.

Pupils at Glentunnel School and volunteers from the Two Rivers

Community trust produced video guides on making two versions of

a Māori manu taratahi (a triangular shaped kite).

Families are encouraged to use the videos to make their own kites

and join others across the district in flying them on Kite Day on

Sunday 19 July from 1pm. Two Rivers Trust will also be hosting a

kite flying event at Darfield Domain from 3pm on the day.

To learn about how to make your kite visit selwyn.govt.nz/matariki.

Youth Fund supporting rangatahi

Traditional games and Top Town challenges were part of a first

Tamariki Day for Ngāi Te Ruahikihiki ki Taumutu.

Ngāi Te Ruahikihiki ki Taumutu hosted the day, for young people

associated with the rūnanga at the start of the year. The day

was supported by the Selwyn Youth Project Fund, which is open

for applications.

A group of 120 young people attended the event at Te Pā o Moki,

supported by Sports Canterbury and University of Canterbury

Masters students. They enjoyed games and challenges designed to

foster health, relationships and cultural understanding, Te Taumutu

Rūnanga chairperson Liz Brown says.

“We were blessed with beautiful weather when we split into two

groups for Top Town challenges at Awhitu House and traditional

games at Te Pā o Moki. Our focus of the day was tamariki and

rakatahi wellbeing, being active within our environments.

“We had our friends from Selwyn Libraries attend with the Edge

Connector Vehicle, this allows our tamariki to register to be a

member of Selwyn Libraries. What a great day for all Ngāi Te

Ruahikihiki ki Taumutu whānau!"

Up to $5,000 in funds is available from the Selwyn Youth Project

Fund, run by the Youth Council to support groups and individuals

with events or activities that support the wellbeing of youth in Selwyn.

So if you have a cool idea, or a plan in place (big or small) to deliver

something great for the community, the Selwyn Youth Council is

keen to hear from you.

For criteria and to apply visit selwyn.govt.nz/youthcouncil or email

youth.council@selwyn.govt.nz if you have any questions.

ON THE

ROADS

On the roads

Due to the Lowes Road and Tennyson Street

intersection upgrade, Lowes Road is one way on both

sides of the intersection, with lanes open for traffic

Tennyson Street.

Leeston Road and Old Bridge Road intersection is being upgraded.

Traffic management is in place.

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 Shelley Bakker from Recycle Recreate.

Ever wondered what happens to bouncy castles at the end of their life? Mostly they end up in landfill

or the ocean. But in the hands of Recycle Recreate founder Shelley Bakker, they become bags, wallets

and pouches.

A Prebbleton resident of 14 years, Shelley has always had a passion for creating and being sustainable.

Starting with making produce bags under her brand Bags Not Plastic, she now sells a range of recycled

products internationally, at the Lincoln and Prebbleton markets, and even delivers some by bike.

Shelley has a passion for finding these materials, at second hand stores, blind makers, seatbelt

replacers and other contacts.

A red seatbelt from a Porsche is now a wallet, old tents get turned into ponchos, air bags from shipping

containers become frost covers and those panniers attached to Shelley’s delivery bike used to be

billboard signs.

“I try to use as much as I can of each material. Some of my items are just one-offs. I like the excitement

of making something totally new and unique.”

By buying local you support Selwyn families and reduce your carbon footprint, she says.

“It’s the sustainable side of shopping locally because you’re

buying quality local made goods that are going to last,

compared to super cheap things from overseas.”

From supporting school fundraisers to helping run a popular

clothing swap and organising the Prebbleton Market, Shelley is

active in her community and continually sharing her message

about sustainability.

“My main thing is keeping stuff out of landfill and educating

people. Most people think it’s impossible to aim for zero waste,

however if every person just changed one thing, it will make a

huge difference.”

top 20-15 after the scores were

tied 10-10 at half-time. Neither

side gave any quarter in a tense

battle.

Waihora gets this weekend off

with the bye while Southbridge,

alone at the top-of-the-table,

should have a relatively troublefree

appointment with Hornby.

Hornby put up a much more

spirited performance on Saturday

against West Melton, going down

11-27. But they will be no match

for the competition juggernaut,

Southbridge.

Lincoln’s will have home

ground advantage in their bid to

get the season on track against a

tricky Darfield on Saturday.

Lincoln beat Springston 24-17

at the weekend but Darfield will

be a stiffer test.

Lincoln roared to a 24-0

Southbridge’s Isileli Fine charges like a battering ram.

lead heading towards the final

quarter stalled, which Springston

capitalised on. They will not

be able to do the same this

weekend.

In the other match on Saturday

Prebbleton thrashed Rolleston

68-12.

In other matches this weekend

Prebbleon v Springston, and West

Melton v Rolleston. Waihora has

the bye.

In with

the New!

Well-known furniture retailer Target Furniture has taken

the opportunity to open their latest store in central

Christchurch – and it is certainly different from anything

Christchurch shoppers have seen before.

Target Furniture has had a long-term presence in

Christchurch and has now relocated and reinvented

the shopping experience for customers with this new

concept store.

The large, open store has gone and been replaced with

a showroom that encourages customers to explore and

discover more as they stroll through rooms that have

been created to showcase the furniture. Target has

partnered with Resene to illustrate the types of colours

that are proving popular in New Zealand homes, and

these are incorporated into the displays.

“Furniture shopping should be fun, easy, inspirational

and a highlight of the customer’s shopping year,” says

Rob.

“The new store is a result of significant local and

international research, a considerable amount of recent

experimentation in existing stores and feedback from

customers,” says company director Rob Bielby.

Technology is another innovative feature of the new

store. Unlike traditional ticketing and signage, most of

the signage is now digital, creating a more personalised

message for customers and telling more about the

Target story and the services they offer.

Target is one of the first major retailers to use QR

(Quick Response) labels. This allows customers to scan

the ticket on their phone to get immediate access to

detailed information on the furniture, including sizes,

materials, guarantees, availability, and other items in the

range.

Brochures are also available with details of the different

furniture ranges for customers not wanting to go digital,

Rob says, while staff are always on hand to answer

questions and offer advice.

There is also a digital kiosk equipped with computers

where customers can log onto the Target website and

view the 2500-plus products online, with images also

displayed on Facebook and Instagram.

“We aim to highlight all the shopping options we offer

– digital and instore. Our point of difference is the

experience and we cater for all our customers’ shopping

preferences – from totally digital to totally bricks and

mortar.”

Wednesday July 15 2020 15

Prompt delivery is an important part of the customer

experience, Rob adds.

“We have invested in our own fleet of trucks and are

committed to regular weekly deliveries in Christchurch. Our

goal is to have furniture delivered into Christchurch within

10 days of being ordered, if it is available in our Auckland

distribution centre.”

Target Furniture is located on the ground-floor level of the

Spotlight building on the corner of Moorhouse Avenue and

Durham Street, with several other furniture outlets in the

vicinity.

“This encourages customers to the area as they have more

options to look at,” Rob says, “and while customers do

have a choice, we believe we know how to buy for Kiwi

homes, and offer furniture that gives people the chance to

add a dash of luxury to their home without it costing an arm

and a leg.

“Target is determined to shake up the traditional furniture

retail landscape making fashionable, practical and

affordable furniture available to everyone in a shopping

environment that surprises and delights.”

Target Moorhouse is the first of the new-generation stores

and the concept will be rolled out to all existing stores and

new stores that are planned.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Kiwifruit and lime - a match made in heaven

Ingredients

Gluten-free pecan crust

1 cup dates (pits removed)

1 cup raw pecans

½ cup coconut flakes

1 tbsp coconut oil

Pinch of sea salt

Filling and topping

2 cups raw unsalted cashews,

soaked

⅔ cups fresh squeezed lime juice

(about 4 limes)

1 tsp vanilla extract

½ cup maple syrup

½ cup full-fat coconut milk

(canned)

¼ cup avocado

¼ cup coconut oil

5-6 kiwifruit, peeled and sliced

Directions

Place the cashews in a large

bowl and pour hot water over top.

Let them to soak for 1 hour prior

to making the pie filling.

To make the crust: Add all of

the crust ingredients to a food

processor and process until quite

finely and evenly ground.

Add the crust mixture to either

a pie pan or a 20cm round cake

pan. If using a pie pan you do

not need to grease the pan or use

baking paper, and can simply

press the crust mixture down to

form a flat crust.

If using a round cake pan

instead you should line the pan

with baking paper that has been

cut in a circle to fit the bottom of

the pan.

You will also want to cut

two strips of baking paper to

approximately 5 x 35cm and

lie them criss-cross across the

bottom of the pan.

This will make the pie easy to

remove to serve from another

platter once frozen for a more

impressive presentation.

Add the crust mixture on top

of the paper layers and compress

it firmly to create a solid crust

by pressing firmly down using

your hands over another piece of

baking paper to prevent sticking.

To make the filling: Drain the

water from the cashews and place

them in a blender along with all

of the other ingredients for the

filling except for the kiwifruit.

Blend on high until smooth,

scraping the sides of the blender

with a spatula as needed.

Pour the filling over top of the

crust and freeze for 1-2 hours

until the pie is partially set.

Remove the pie from the

freezer and layer the sliced

kiwifruit in a decorative

arrangement on top of the pie.

Place the pie back into the

freezer and let set another 1-2

hours prior to serving. Store the

pie in the freezer and remove to

thaw for 30min to soften prior

to serving. Cut any leftovers into

individual portions so they can

easily be enjoyed as a single serve

dessert later instead of repeatedly

thawing out the entire pie.

Give Rural NZ a share of $3b

Federated Farmers has some advice for

how the Government should divvy up the

$3 billion infrastructure fund.

The COVID Response and Recovery

Fund was announced as part of Budget

2020, with Cabinet announcing how the

fund will be allocated.

The fund, aimed at creating 20,000 jobs

as part of “shovel ready” infrastructure

projects, is in addition to an existing $12

billion towards the New Zealand Upgrade

Programme and existing Provincial

Growth Fund investments.

Of the fund, $708 million will go

towards transport, $670 million towards

community and social development,

$464 million towards housing and urban

development, and $460 million towards

environmental projects.

Investments in the fund include about

$210 million for climate resilience and

flood protection projects, $155 million

for transformative energy projects, about

$180 million for large-scale construction

projects, and $50 million for enhanced

regional digital connectivity.

Federated Farmers President and

commerce spokesperson Andrew

Hoggard says the Government should

have an eye to building longer-term

resilience and putting in infrastructure

that underpins increased primary

industry production.

Following some of the worst droughts on

record, Hoggard says the Government’s

$210 million fund for

climate resilience and

flood protection is a

prime candidate for

boosting community

water storage.

He says the $708

million put aside for

transport shouldn’t

all go to expensive

trainsets, cycleways,

walkways and metro

motorways.

“There needs to be

increased investment

in the maintenance

and improvement

of rural roads and

bridges to better

support transport

connections heavily

relied upon by rural

and provincial people,”

says Hoggard.

“Many rural roads

are already in a poor

state and numerous

rural bridges are

past their designed

lifetimes.”

Hoggard says for the $670 million for

community development, investment

in improving the limited broadband

capability in rural areas — and not just

more communications hubs in provincial

towns — will help level the digital

divide between town and country and

support increased uptake of emerging

technologies on farms to lift productivity

and the nation’s earnings.

“As for the $155 million put aside for

energy projects, there’s a strong case

for improving the reliability of rural

electricity supply, and support for farmscale

and community-scale generation

that moves us further towards that

climate-friendly goal of 100% renewable

energy.”

Quality beef bulls wanted

Making quality beef genetics easier for dairy farmers

to access is the aim of a new industry partnership.

Beef + Lamb New Zealand (B+LNZ) Genetics and

LIC are collaborating to help fulfil growing demand

for beef genetics suitable for New Zealand dairy cows.

The collaboration has seen the creation of the

B+LNZ Genetics Dairy Beef Progeny Test, devised

to identify quality beef bulls and help enable their

widespread use for dairy beef.

Beef breeders can nominate their best bulls for

consideration for the programme, with successful

bulls then becoming part of the progeny test scheme.

B+LNZ Genetics and LIC says this will offer breeders

a potential path to the dairy market for the first time.

B+LNZ Genetics’ general manager, Dan Brier says

he is excited about the collaboration and says dairy

farmers are an important and valued part of B+LNZ.

LIC chief executive, Wayne McNee says the

collaboration helps add value to all stages of the dairy

beef market.

“Beef sales are likely to increase significantly over the

next decade and it is important LIC aligns itself with

industry leaders such as B+LNZ Genetics and beef

breeders to ensure the best beef bulls are available for

the domestic and international dairy markets.

“We know farmers are focused more than ever on

doing their bit to help reduce the number of bobby

calves leaving their properties and the addition of this

progeny test will further help with this objective.”

Nominations close 14 August with successful

farmers notified 28 August.

Mazda expands its SUV line-up

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

SELWYN TIMES

MAZDA COULDN’T put it more

simply, its new crossover sport

utility vehicle – the CX-30 – is

bigger than a CX-3 and smaller

than a CX-5.

I once wrote that the CX-3 was

my favourite car in the whole

Mazda line-up, but that feeling

wasn’t shared by everyone, it took

a lot of criticism for a lack of space

in the rear seating compartment.

My argument was that if you were

mostly driving with one or two-up,

then that became irrelevant.

Whichever way you look at it,

those who were captured by the

CX-3’s dynamics everywhere else

will find the CX-30 a fabulous

driving vehicle, and it gets the

benefit of extra space in the rear

seats, along with increased load

space. Of course, the CX-30

also shares the DNA of its other

stablemates that span a wide crosssection

of the SUV market, there’s

a size for all families depending on

how many travel in the vehicle on a

daily basis.

The CX-30 is also priced midway

between CX-3 and CX-5, there

are three variants – GSX, GTX

and Limited – the range starts at

$41,490 for a 2-litre model, the

other two are 2.5-litre powered

and list at $44,990 and $50,990

respectively. Factor in the 2.5-litre

variants are four-wheel-drive, the

2-litre engine drives out the front

wheels only.

I’m scheduled into all three

variants, and I’m really looking

forward to the two remaining

drives – the CX-30 is a smart piece

of kit, and if you have read any of

my recent Mazda evaluations you’ll

notice that a pattern has developed,

I’m constantly saying the product

that is coming out of the Mazda

factories is high on quality and

desire.

My first drive was the mid-spec

model, and even though it doesn’t

get all the bells and whistles it will

still satisfy, I particularly like it for

its cloth trim, I don’t need leather.

It took me many years to fully

relate to the traditional sport utility

vehicle, and now I can certainly see

their appeal through functionality

and practicality, and you can’t help

but being impressed with the way

the CX-30 drives and handles, it

has form and function built into

every aspect.

Under the bonnet sits the fourcylinder

2488cc engine, there are

no surprises here, it is an engine

that has been utilised by Mazda

for several years in this form. It’s

part of a SkyActive range that has

been constantly upgraded and

engineered for maximum efficiency

both in terms of power outputs and

fuel efficiency.

It is rated with 139kW and

252Nm, both outputs realised at

traditional points in the rev band

– 6000 and 4000rpm respectively.

TRENDY: The Mazda CX-30 offers traditional sport utility

vehicle capacity.

CX-30: Comprehensive series that fits seamlessly into Mazda’s range of SUVs.

The engine is coupled to a sixspeed

automatic transmission,

also very traditional. But the

reality of this is that over time

and development the two main

engineering pieces work perfectly

together, the electronic mapping

between the two is fluid and, of

course, very smooth.

This engine works well in the

CX-30, of course it feels more

responsive than what it does in

the CX-5 because of the weight

difference between the two models,

the CX-30 feels feisty and vibrant,

responding willingly to throttle

application and is always hooked

into the right gearing.

The norm these days is to

incorporate driver-selectable

engine management modes and

the CX-30 is no exception,

although there is just a choice of

two, the default mode being

a normal setting which I use

almost always. There is also a

sport mode which is selfexplanatory,

it is there for when

overtaking opportunities present

themselves and it is also useful

for that long hill climb through

to Akaroa, it keeps the engine

working in the point of strength

and maximum delivery.

Mazda claim fuel usage figures

of 6.8-litres per 100km for the

2.5 engine on a combined cycle

average. I tried reaching that figure

• Price – Mazda CX-30 GTX,

$44,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4395mm; width, 1795mm;

height, 1540mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2488cc, 139kW, 252Nm,

six-speed automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9.3sec

• Fuel usage – 6.8l/100km

as a target but couldn’t quite get

there. When I took the evaluation

vehicle back to the dealership it

was listing at around 7.4l/100km,

which was promisingly close.

At 100km/h on the highway the

engine is quite relaxed working

away at 1900rpm, at that speed

it sips fuel instantaneously at the

rate of 6l/100km. That translates to

economical motoring if you are on

that long road trip.

As you would expect from a

company that has long had a

history of sports car development,

the CX-30 also handles with a

feel that is most unlike a tall sport

utility vehicle. Sure, at 1.54m there

is a bit of body movement, even

with moderate spring and damper

firming there is going to be some

gravitational transition, but it

is well arrested and occupants

aren’t lurched through directional

changes.

I took the evaluation on a burst

up and down the twists and turns

of the Waimakariri River gorge

road and it felt delightful with solid

turn-in and suspension freedom,

he latter garnered through the fourwheel

fully independent system.

Obviously it needs that design to

get drive to the rear wheels, but

the point I’m making is that the

suspension is quality through

and through and is the perfect

compromise between comfort and

handling ability.

It must also be pointed out that

four-wheel-drive also has on-seal

grip and handling benefits, the

CX-30 feels well attached to the

road surface and that is a key safety

ingredient. It works alongside the

suite of safety features that Mazda

has long developed in all of its

product range.

The CX-30 is far more than a

stretched CX-3, it draws on all the

fundamentals sport utility vehicles

require, and packages them in a

comprehensive range.

As much as I’m looking forward

to getting into the other variants,

I’m also a huge believer in the

CX-3.

The choice as a buyer must be

very complicated, but it’s great

to know that Mazda has all bases

covered.

From family cars to work trucks and

supercars to fixer-uppers.

No matter what you're looking for, you

can find it all with Drivesouth.

Gardening

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

SELWYN TIMES

Plan your summer vege garden

JULY IS ONE of the more

difficult winter months in the

home garden. It is often wet and

cold – conditions that are not

conducive to working in the

garden.

However, on days that are clear

and sunny, there are many tasks

requiring attention.

Plant flowering annuals for

pops of colour

Displays of flowering annuals

can add a little cheer and colour

in a dreary winter garden, whether

grown in flower beds, containers

or decks and patios. Primulas

are often at their absolute best in

July. With all flowering annuals,

commence dead heading (the

removal of dead flowers) to encourage

continuous flowering.

Winter flowering annuals

include ageratum, calendulas,

cinerarias, cornflowers, nemesias,

pansies, poppies, primulas, snapdragons,

stock and sweet peas.

growth and tie down fruiting

leaders on frames or wires.

In warm sheltered areas, citrus

can now be harvested, mandarins,

lemons, limes, and navel oranges.

Berries

It’s the final month for pruning

vigorous growing berry

fruit, raspberries, boysenberries,

loganberries, loganberries, and

gooseberries. Remove all the old

growth and reduce the amount of

last summer’s canes. Tie the canes

to existing wires or framework.

Lawns

There is little work to do on

lawns this month and it is often

best to keep off them if they have

become excessively wet. Moss

may occur in wet, shady parts of

the lawn but this is no cause for

alarm as it will disappear over

the dry summer months. Do take

Vegetable garden

Continue harvesting your

winter vegetables and regularly

inspect your plants for slugs and

snails. They appear to be hardier

every year!

If you have sown a green crop

this year, then towards the end of

the month or August (once plants

are about 30cm and before they

flower) chop it up dig it into existing

soil in preparation for spring

plantings. Green crops help improve

soil structure and provide

organic Nitrogen naturally.

Now is a good time to plan

your summer vegetable garden.

Following the experience of the

Covid-19 outbreak, consider expanding

the area of your summer

vegetable garden and the range of

vegetables that you can grow.

Fruit trees and kiwifruit

Finish pruning deciduous

(sheds leaves in autumn) fruit

trees. Spray with a copper compound

to help prevent re-infection

of fungal diseases in spring.

Kiwifruit vines can now be

pruned. Remove all the surplus

note of areas that retain water

long after heavy rain as they may

require additional drainage to be

installed in summer.

Trees and shrubs

An excellent time to carry out

any further tree or shrub plantings

on your property. Always

select healthy ‘vigorous’ looking

new specimens and ensure they

are ‘fit for purpose’ i.e. they will

achieve what you require where

they are planted. When planting,

pop in a planter tab to give them

the best start.

Rose pruning commences

Most roses have now shed their

leaves and can be pruned. Remove

all dead or diseased wood,

remember most rose bushes, even

though quite healthy, will have

BUSY: If you are planting trees this winter make sure they are

fit for purpose. Flowering annuals will add a little cheer to a

dreary winter garden. Prune your berries this month.

some dead wood.

Prune to outward facing buds

and remove any wood that is

thinner than pencil thickness. If

some plants have a lot of dead/

diseased wood, it is advisable

to remove the specimens and

replace with new rose bushes.

With climbing roses, train the

main leaders (growing up from

ground) on a horizontal axis as

this encourages the production of

flowers.

With all roses, a spray with copper

compound after the completion

of pruning helps minimise

reinfection of fungal disease in

spring.

Building blocks to a new home

Anyone intending to build a new home

should have the builder’s contract

checked out by an experienced lawyer.

A payment schedule can also minimise

financial risks. Issues that you may have

to deal with include:

the deposit, guarantees and warranties

If you want to compare building

companies, it’s important to get down

to finer details such as how many power

points there are per room, the type of

windows you are having or which paint

finishes are included.

Questions to ask builders:

• Do you have a completion guarantee

and how does it work?

• Is there a loss of deposit guarantee?

• Is the company a Registered Master

Builder and does it use third-party

written guarantees?

• What is the schedule for payments?

• How are the deposit and

progress payments

administered?

• Are they held in a solicitor’s trust

fund?

• Will the master franchisor complete

the build if the franchisee goes out of

business

• What are the exact specs?

• Are the prices fixed?

• What is excluded from the build?

• Are there any restrictions on

driveways or any other connections?

• Can you speak with clients who have

just completed a build?

Do your homework before you decide

on a building company and you will have

a less stressful time once the building

process starts.

Knowing what could happen

if you can’t complete a sale

Life can sometimes take an unexpected

turn when you’re buying a house.

Knowing what could happen to your

deposit and sale and purchase agreement

if your circumstances suddenly change

and you are unable to complete the

deal will leave you in a much stronger

position.

“There are many “what-ifs” to consider

when buying a home and I urge you to

talk through your concerns with your

lawyer or conveyancer as soon as your

circumstances change,” says Real Estate

Authority (REA) chief executive, Kevin

Lampen-Smith.

“A sale and purchase agreement is a

legally binding contract between you and

the seller, which becomes unconditional

once the allocated time for meeting

your conditions has been reached,” says

Lampen-Smith.

“Once the agreement for sale and

purchase becomes unconditional, then

you not only don’t get your deposit back,

but also face the likelihood of having

to purchase the property – even if you

can’t afford to – or having to cancel the

agreement and be sued for any loss the

seller suffers as a result of you failing to

settle the sale. So, if your circumstances

suddenly change, you’ll need to speak to

your lawyer as soon as possible.”

Getting finances sorted to buy a

property isn’t easy, but understanding

the different deposits when you buy a

house can help. There are two different

kinds of deposits – the deposit you pay

when you make an offer and your bank

deposit.

A buyer will usually be required to pay

a deposit when the sale and purchase

agreement is signed by both parties. The

deposit paid is often about 10 per cent of

the total price you are offering – you can

negotiate a different rate if you need to –

and is usually held in a trust account by

the real estate agent. The real estate agent

takes their commission fee out of this

amount when the agreement becomes

unconditional and the remaining balance

goes to the seller.

When you arrange a home loan with

a bank, you must have a certain amount

of funds to use as a deposit – your bank

deposit. This deposit will more than

likely be different from the amount your

sale and purchase agreement states that

you must pay the seller. For example,

your bank may need you to have 20 per

cent of the purchase price available as

a bank deposit in order to secure your

mortgage, even if you only have to pay

the seller a 10 per cent deposit.

“When drawing up a sale and purchase

agreement, you can include conditions of

the sale, such as a title search, valuation,

LIM report, obtaining finance, obtaining

insurance and builder’s inspection,”

Lampen-Smith says.

“Including conditions can really help

– you can even negotiate your sale and

purchase deposit.”

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Quality with appealing features

Imagination, efficient use of space and

a quality build are all apt descriptors of

Golden Homes’ new showhome at The

Borough.

Located in Faringdon’s latest showhome

village, this beautiful 168sqm home sits

well on its 540sqm section, making it

a must-see for anyone looking to build

under 200sqm (especially first home

buyers).

A standout point in the showhome, is

the thought which has gone into its design,

fittings and features.

Slats have been used to create division

between the lounge and living area while

built-in cabinetry in the dining room

provides a window seat and storage space,

all in one. There is also a wider than usual

study nook with built-in cabinetry.

A cathedral ceiling runs through the

lounge and living area. Along with this,

a generous number of windows and two

sliders, make for a light, spacious living

space. In the living area, a double stacker

leads out to a patio, while a second slider

accesses a rear patio and the garden from

the dining room.

Features within the kitchen, include

engineered stone bench tops; black sinks

with tower faucet in the kitchen island

where there is also room to sit, mingle or

dine; a dishwasher, induction cooktop and

built in oven; and a walk-in pantry.

A little luxury has been incorporated

into the master bedroom where there

is a walk-in robe and ensuite with tiled

floor and walk-in shower. Popular with

viewers is the LED heated mirrors in both

bathrooms.

LED lighting, a RibRaft foundation and

RAB board bracing (giving a rigid bearing,

as well as thermal and acoustic break)

are all standard to Golden Homes, as is

wallpaper feature walls, engineered stone

bench tops and a heat pump.

“Our philosophy is to be transparent

with everything inclusive so buyers know

what they are getting. This is especially

important for first home buyers. We

provide clients with a quote which

includes the driveway, patios, pathways,

letter box, boundary and internal fencing

with a gate, and clothesline,” advises Dean

McGuigan, Director of Golden Homes

Canterbury.

Dean and his sales team are passionate

about quality and building a ‘better home’,

right down to the smallest detail like the

hardware chosen and use of solid timber

for skirtings, doorways and windows,

as well as fire retardant lining under the

roofing iron.

Golden Homes’ has received positive

feedback on their latest Faringdon

showhome. House and land packages for

this home come under $550,000 (GST

inclusive) when sited on a 460-500sqm

section.

Golden Homes’ The Borough

showhome is located at 45 Lanner Drive,

The Borough, Faringdon, Rolleston, and

is open: 12noon to 4pm, every day.

Show homes

the ultimate way to shop around

Across the selwyn district, we are blessed with an

extensive array of very good quality show homes.

Building companies build show homes

to demonstrate their workmanship,

display innovative design ideas and

present a snapshot into a new and

luxurious lifestyle, featuring all the

latest in materials, fittings and fixtures.

A show home can inspire you in a way

nothing else can. You can absorb the

ambiance they present and admire the

innovative techniques, new materials

and technology.

You can ask questions, take notes

and compare. You can see at a glance

features you would love to emulate or

would avoid when building your home.

Best of all, you ;will see the building

companies’ attention to detail.

Show homes are the perfect way to get

a good idea of pricing, discover good

quality and value, learn about superior

use of space, future-proofing, ongoing

maintenance and long-term returns.

So what are you waiting for? Check

out our maps, grab a notepad and

pencil and begin the exciting project of

building your own home.
