Neighbours at war

Across

fence

conflicts

increase

• By Devon Bolger

A FAMILY caught in a feud

with their neighbours for the

past year say they are relieved it

is finally over.

The neighbours, who

allegedly taunted and watched

the Rolleston residents, have

now moved

out.

Senior

Sergeant

Dean Harker

said police

have seen an

increase in

Dean Harker

the number

of complaints

regarding

neighbourhood conflicts in the

district over the last month.

A member of the family,

who wished to remain

anonymous, said: “It started a

couple of years after they moved

in. They were targeting the other

neighbours first and then they

started on us. They kind of left

my husband alone but they

would yell out at me.

“It got to the point where we

didn’t really go outside. My

husband wouldn’t even open

his garage because they’d be

watching him. They’d just

stand out there and stare at you

or look out their window at

you. It was constant weird stuff

they were doing.”

They were very relieved to

hear their neighbours have now

moved out as the household

was deeply affected by the

conflict, the resident said.

“We even changed the layout

of our house. We blocked the

windows in our lounge and

made it a smaller area so they

couldn’t look into it.”

They reported the incidents to

police but there was not much

that could be done unless a

criminal offence was committed.

“I laid a complaint first off

and then I had direct contact

with a police officer and could

just contact him.

“It may have been about

six times I talked to police

about it but there was a lot of

stuff I didn’t report because

it was annoying to us but

it wasn’t going to change

anything.” • Turn to page 4

IT SOUNDS like not-sofriendly

neighbours are

becoming more prevalent in

the district.

On page 1 today, we talk

to one family that has been

through the mill in the past

year.

Their problems have finally

come to an end because the

neighbours causing the

psychological carnage have

moved out.

Said the aggrieved party:

“It got to the point where

we didn’t really go outside.

My husband wouldn’t even

open his garage because

they’d be watching him.

They’d just stand out there

and stare at you or look out

their window at you. It was

constant weird stuff they

were doing.”

Police say a key piece of

advice to people is to not

take matters into their own

hands.

Wise words.

Lincoln to get an

ambulance based at fire station

• By Devon Bolger

A COMMUNITY-LED initiative

will see an ambulance based at

Lincoln.

It is likely the ambulance will

be on call every day from 10am-

10pm.

St John is working with Fire

and Emergency New Zealand

over the project. Discussions

are being held

about when it

will be up and

running.

The ambulance

will be

based at the

Lincoln Fire

Dave Berry

Station.

Said FENZ

area commander

Dave Berry: “It’s actually

a local community initiative and

they approached us and I offered

the station as a place to put it.

“It will be based in Lincoln but

used around the area.”

Berry said it is good to have

extra support for medical calls in

Lincoln.

“All of the firefighters are trained

in responding to medical calls

but it is always good to have some

extra knowledge behind you.

“We attend any purple calls

which are cardiac arrests and

things like that and also motor

vehicle accidents where we do

basic treatment of patients,

extracting and things like

that.”

Last year the Lincoln Volunteer

Fire Brigade responded to 54

motor vehicle accidents and 17

medical calls.

Currently there are ambulances

based in Rolleston and Darfield.

Last year, the station in

PROGRESS:

The Lincoln

Fire Station

will be the

home of an

service that

will operate

Rolleston became staffed 24/7

meaning it has one ambulance

operating 24 hours a day, seven

days a week and a second

ambulance on a 12-hour day

shift from mid-morning to midevening.

relieved

it’s finally

over

• From page 1

Harker said the conflict with

the resident is one of a number of

similar situations they have been

made aware of recently.

“We have about three ongoing

conflicts in Rolleston at the moment

and a couple of incidents

from rural areas outside of Rolleston.”

He said police sometimes attempt

to speak with both parties

to try to work through the conflict

but it is not always possible.

“Not everybody agrees to

mediation so it can be difficult.

Legally there is not a lot we can

do if they have not committed a

criminal offence.”

Harker said the key piece of

advice he can give is to not take

matters into your own hands.

Good start to young

driver licence campaign

• By Devon Bolger

POLICE SAY catching just two

young drivers breaching their

licence conditions as part of a

new campaign is a good start.

Senior Constable Scott

Mclachlan said he has been

happy with the results since the

campaign launched last Monday.

“It is good that we are not

getting a lot of stops of kids

breaching their licences.”

Of the two police have caught,

one of them is a female who

was driving on a learner licence

with no supervisor or L plates in

place.

“It was quite obvious she was

not a confident driver which is

what drew my attention to her.”

The other offender was a male

who was also on a learner licence

and was carrying passengers.

Both of the drivers will be

sent letters to attend a seminar

planned for later in the year

instead of being given tickets.

“The passengers in the vehicle

will also be asked to attend as if

you are a passenger to someone

on a learner licence, you are

more than likely going to be

aiding and abetting so you’re

basically committing the same

offence as the driver.”

Mclachlan said police found

no drivers in breach of their

licence conditions during patrols

at Darfield and Lincoln high

schools on Monday morning.

“I have not been disappointed

is how I would describe it. It is

good that we are not getting a lot

of stops of kids breaching their

licences.”

More patrols are planned,

mainly in the mornings and

lunchtimes, until the second

week of October when the

campaign will end.

Rather than being fined,

drivers caught breaching their

licences will instead be invited to

an educational seminar.

‘If they attend and they take

on board the presentation then

we won’t issue a fine and demerit

points.

“If they decline to show up

then they will get a ticket which

will be dated back to when they

were dealt with.”

Young people breaching

the conditions of their licence

is a problem in the district,

Mclachlan said.

“It is a problem all over the

country. We have a limited

number of staff who are in a

position to be able to respond

regularly and keep on top of that

kind of offending.”

on some overdue library items

• By Devon Bolger

FOR THE next two years,

residents will no longer be

charged if their library book is

overdue.

District council chief executive

David Ward said it is one of the

post Covid-19 initiatives to support

the community.

“It’s as much of a response to

Covid-19 as it is to enhancing the

libraries. We are also acknowledging

that we are in the midst

of constructing a very significant

library in Rolleston, Te Ara Atea,

and reminding people of that.”

Ward said the proposal has

been on the back-burner for a

while but Covid-19 has given

them an opportunity to revisit it.

SECTIONS OF two Prebbleton

water races will be closed to

make way for upgrades to two

dangerous intersections.

The district council agreed to

the closure of a 920m section of

the Blakes Rd water race and a

2700m section of the Marshs Rd

District councillors unanimously

voted last week to approve

waiving the overdue fees

until June 30, 2022.

Residents have previously been

charged 50c per book per day if

it is overdue. The fees are already

waived for junior cards.

A total of $17,133 in overdue

fees were paid during the

2018/2019 financial year and

$11,932 was generated last financial

year.

The fees will now be waived

with the exception of adults who

are late returning items from the

pay-for/value added, hot picks

and some DVDs.

The library will still charge for

the replacement of any items that

are lost or damaged.

Roundabouts force closure of water races

It is to make way for new

roundabouts that will be installed

at the Springs and Marshs

and Blakes and Shands Rds

intersections.

A district council spokesman

said the closure will save significant

costs when building the new

roundabouts.

“Due to work on the Christchurch

Southern Motorway both

[water races] have been flowing

intermittently and their closure

will provide certainty to nearby

landlords on future water supplies.”

There have been two fatal

Chlorine for

two more

water supplies

• By Devon Bolger

THE UPPER Selwyn Huts and

Arthur’s Pass water supplies will

be permanently chlorinated.

District councillors unanimously

voted to approve the proposal at

a meeting last week.

It follows a decision in December

2018 to chlorinate both water

supplies, subject to consultation

with both communities.

Following that consultation,

the district council has agreed

to chlorinate based on a risk assessment

approach to make sure

water is safe at the two locations.

Independent risk reviews of

both sites also recommended

chlorination. The risk assessment

for Arthur’s Pass gave the scheme

a score of 43.7 out of 100 and the

Upper Selwyn Huts scheme 34.1.

It brings the total number of

chlorinated water supplies in the

district to nine. A further 19 supplies

remain unchlorinated.

The district council also agreed

to consult with the community

through the 2021-2031 Long-Term

Plan on whether the remaining

unchlorinated supplies should be

chlorinated.

Crusaders fan thanks lifesavers

• By Matt Slaughter

JACQUI TURNBULL was

waiting in the line to watch the

Crusaders play the Blues with

her family last month.

The next thing she remembers

is darkness.

The 55-year-old had collapsed

after an asthma attack and if it

wasn’t for three doctors behind

her in the line, St John paramedics,

police and security staff,

Turnbull said she would be dead.

Said Turnbull: “We had parked

down on Lyttelton St and I was

walking quite fast because I

didn’t want Jack, my little grandson

to miss out on seeing the

horses going around.”

She didn’t have her inhaler

with her and when she got to the

gate and her family members

were getting tickets Turnbull was

feeling faint and decided to sit on

a nearby grass verge.

“That was the last thing I

remember,” she said.

St John ambulance staff came

to her aid and started doing cardiopulmonary

resuscitation but

she was not breathing.

That’s when doctors Tom

Brown, David Lyons-Ewing and

Rob Cole who were standing behind

her, stepped in and inserted

a tube into Turnbull’s mouth to

Cole, the doctors who saved her life.

“If they hadn’t have been

there, I was a goner.”

help her start breathing again.

“The doctors were actually

ICU doctors, it was so crazy, and

they just finished their shift to go

to the game.

“If they hadn’t have been there,

I was a goner,” she said.

The three doctors then left

Turnbull in the hands of ambulance

staff.

Said Turnbull: “The ambulance

apparently worked on me for 20

minutes or so before they even

left the stadium.”

TITLE-WINNERS: After suffering a life-threatening asthma

attack at the Crusaders v Blues game last month, Jacqui

Turnbull received tickets to watch the red and blacks beat

the Highlanders on August 8.

PHOTO: GETTY

She was transported to the intensive

care unit at Christchurch

Hospital.

Turnbull’s family was told she

may suffer brain damage, but

miraculously, she recovered and

was discharged two days after

her asthma attack.

Crusaders staff heard

Turnbull’s story and invited

her, her daughter Jess Blomeley

and Blomeley’s friend Sophie

Thompson to the team’s training

in the lead-up to the Highlanders

clash, where she met with

Brown, police and security staff

who helped her, and coach Scott

Robertson.

Said Turnbull: “Tom [Brown]

the young doctor had actually

come in to see me when I was in

the ward, it must have been Monday

morning, so I had actually

met him prior to this. But because

I was so spaced out, just saying

thank you didn’t even cut it.

“It was really cool to be able to

go back there a few weeks later

and meet up with everybody and

Terrace Downs Resort up for auction

THE TERRACE Downs golf

resort, which is regarded as one

of the best in the country, is up

for auction after its owner died

from Covid-19.

The resort in Windwhistle

was bought by Japanese investor

Hiroshi Hasegawa in 2012 after

he was given the go-ahead by the

Overseas Investment Office.

Hasegawa died in Japan aged

59 in April after becoming ill

with Covid-19. His estate is now

selling the resort.

The auction is set to take place

on September 17 in Christchurch.

Terrace Downs Resort is regarded

as the finest high-country

course in New Zealand and was

ranked by New Zealand Golf

magazine as one of the top five

courses for layout in the country.

The par 72 course offers a

choice of four tees on each hole

and incorporates 10 lakes and

more than 60 bunkers.

Marketing agent Tim Rookes,

of commercial real estate firm

CBRE, said the property is being

sold as land and buildings only.

“We are expecting strong interest

from high net worth investors

and consortiums, who will

recognise this as a rare chance to

acquire a very well-known property.

This is a fantastic opportunity

to own a championship golf

HIGHLY-REGARDED: Terrace Downs golf resort will go up for auction following the death of its owner Hiroshi Hasegawa.

course which is regarded as one

of the best in the country,” he

says.

“Golf courses certainly don’t

come up on the market very

often, certainly not in such a

magnificent setting as this, so we

expect this will be seen as a trophy

asset by prospective buyers.”

The resort features extensive

landscaping, with tussock plantings,

lakes and stands of woodland

and bush.

Sealed roads provide access to

78 privately-owned residential

sites; including a cluster of 52

apartments and 26 free-standing

chalet-style homes scattered

throughout the property.

As well as golf, the resort itself

has existing facilities for archery,

clay bird shooting, tennis,

mountain biking and a driving

range.

Take action if you are being harassed

Area response manager

Senior Sergeant Dean

Harker talks about police

activity in the district

03 349 5050

Dean Harker

Selwyn Police

“DENTURES

IN A DAY!”

Call now

for details

OVER THE last month we have

had an increase of residents

having ongoing problems with

their neighbours and calling into

the station for advice, a lot of

the time it is more of a civil than

criminal matter.

Here is some advice for

people having these types of

problems:

If you’ve been harassed by a

stranger or someone else in the

community, you can take action

against them under the Harassment

Act 1997.

You can apply to the district

court for a restraining order

against the harasser, and in the

most serious cases you can go to

the police.

“Harassment” covers a wide

range of behaviour, including

things such as stalking, abusive

phone calls, and threatening

letter.

The Harassment Act recognises

that behaviour that might

seem innocent or trivial on its

own may amount to harassment

when seen in context.

When you take action under

the Harassment Act, you have

to show, first, that the behaviour

amounts to “harassment” within

the meaning of the Act, and

second that the harassment meets

the test for obtaining a restraining

order under the civil law parts

of the Act or meet the higher test

for criminal harassment.

The Harassment Act doesn’t

apply when the person harassing

you is someone who you’re in a

family or domestic relationship

with. This is covered instead by

the Family Violence Act.

Family violence (which the law

used to call “domestic violence”)

can include a wide range of

family and close personal

relationships.

How can the Harassment Act

help?

If you’re being harassed, you

can apply for a restraining order

from the district court under the

“civil harassment” parts of the

Act.

The Harassment Act also

makes the most serious types of

harassment a criminal offence,

whether or not you’ve already

been granted a restraining order.

In those cases, you can complain

to the police, and if the harasser

is convicted they could be jailed

for up to two years.

A person’s behaviour can

amount to both criminal and

civil harassment. In those situations,

you can both complain to

the police and also apply to the

district court for a restraining

order.

What is a restraining order?

A restraining order is a legal

order granted by the district

court under the “civil harassment”

part of the Harassment

Act. The order makes it a

criminal offence for the harasser

to contact you in any way, or do

things like watching or hanging

round outside your home, or

following you or stopping you in

the street, or doing anything else

that would make any reasonable

person fear for their safety.

The order also makes it illegal

for the harasser to threaten to do

any of those things, or to encourage

someone else to do any of

those things to you.

Just having a restraining order

made against them doesn’t give

the harasser a criminal record.

However, it’s a criminal offence

if they breach the order, and this

will give the person a criminal

record. In this way a restraining

order is similar to a protection

order under the Family Violence

Act.

COMPLAIN: Harassment covers a wide range of behaviour

including stalking.

If the criteria for a restraining

order are met, an order can be

made against any person, but

with exceptions:

• An order can’t be made

against a child (that is, someone

under 18) unless they’re married,

in a civil union, or in a de facto

relationship with their parent’s

permission.

• An order can’t be made

against someone who you are

(or have been) in a family or domestic

relationship with. In these

cases you may be able to apply

for a protection order under the

Family Violence Act.

What’s been happening

crime-wise around the district?

We had a fantastic result

when Senior Constable Hamish

Caird, of Darfield, was able

to apprehend two people and

charge them with a large number

of offences relating to the theft

of farm gates in the area. With

some good old-fashioned

police work we were able to

hold these suspects to account

for their actions and return a

large number of gates to their

owners.

We are also running an operation

over the next few months

focusing on young drivers

breaching their driver licence,

we are focusing on educating the

drivers rather than punishing

them.

I encourage any parent of

a youth who is apprehended

during the operation to attend

the seminar we are having

at the end of the operation,

as a number of parents will

be unaware of insurance

implications, financial and

emotional effects on family of

Kirwee founded by Irish settler

COLONEL de Renzie James

Brett was a prominent pioneer of

the Selwyn district, noted for his

role in bringing irrigation to the

area and in the establishment of

Kirwee; yet he remains relatively

unknown.

Born in Wexford, Ireland, in

1809, Brett was typical of many

early settlers in the district in that

he was well-educated and had

served as an army officer before

migrating to New Zealand. By

the age of 16 he was serving as a

junior officer in the British East

India Company, in India, where

he saw continuous active military

service until 1853, having fought

in the second Anglo-Burmese

war.

During the Crimean War he

was seconded by the War Office

in London for service with

the Sultan of Turkey and later

returned to India where he was

present at the relief of Delhi and

Lucknow during the Indian Mutiny

of 1857-58. He retired with

the rank of colonel in 1863.

Brett immigrated to New

Zealand with his wife and four

children, arriving in Lyttelton on

the Greyhound on May 9, 1865.

A short time later he purchased

a 1000-acre sheep run south of

Courtenay and became a supporter

of small farmer interests and

his property on Courtenay Rd,

‘Kirwee House’ from the name of

a fort he had captured during the

Indian mutiny.

In 1868, the Coal Tramway

Reserve running from Rolleston

to Springfield was marked out by

David Jebson with the intention

Our Great

history

WITH WAYNE STACK

of building a railway line from

Rolleston to Springfield. By 1871

the Courtenay and Tramway

Rds (now known as West Coast

Rd – State Highway 73) had been

surveyed, with the intersection of

these two roads being known as

Brett’s Corner.

With the development of the

railway, interest in establishing

a settlement at Brett’s Corner

increased with the sale of land

and by the time the railway came

through in 1874 a grocery shop

and a bakery had been established

on Tramway Rd, along with a

blacksmith shop on Courtenay

Rd. This was followed by a flour

mill in 1876.

With the building of a railway

station an official name for the

settlement had to be found and

Colonel Brett suggested ‘Kirwee,’

which was subsequently adopted.

The first survey of the township

was registered in October 1877.

Brett’s greatest contribution to

the district was the part he played

in establishing the extensive water

race system that provided muchneeded

water throughout the

district. During the pioneering

years of farming in the area many

locations suffered from a lack of

regular water supply.

Irrigation changed face of district

• From page 11

As farms were established increasingly

further away from the

rivers, water had to be carted in

drays using 400 gallon tanks. This

difficult process was no longer

required through the efforts of

Brett in developing the Malvern

water race system.

He was fully aware of the acute

need for water on the dry plains

and had a novel idea how this

could be supplied. During his

time in India he had seen how the

irrigation systems there had been

developed to provide water to

marginal land.

At first his vision of extracting

water from the Waimakariri

River to supply the whole of the

Canterbury Plains was ridiculed,

as many believed the water would

be lost through the shingle.

However, after the success

of a similar system in mid-

Canterbury, in 1871 the

Canterbury Provincial Council

gave permission for a survey to

be conducted into the feasibility

of Brett’s scheme. Once this was

completed a recommendation

was made for water to be taken

from the Kowai River near

Springfield.

Work commenced in 1876 and

by the end of 1877 the headworks

and two miles of race had been

completed and officially opened.

Drummond’s smithy in 1874. Right: The monument over the Kirwee water race dedicated to Colonel de Renzie James Brett.

One branch of the line followed

the straight Tramway Rd from

Springfield to Rolleston, through

Kirwee.

The water race eventually

reached Kirwee in 1881 and at

this time Brett and other farmers

in the area had (probably illegally)

dug their own connecting

irrigation ditches to extract water

from the main race.

This scheme proved so successful

in providing a constant

and reliable water supply that a

deputation from West Melton

requested a branch race be built

to also supply water to properties

along the Bealey Rd.

The demand for water increased

with further settlement

and by 1886 a new scheme was

authorized.

Headworks were built near

Halkett and from this intake the

majority of West Melton’s stock

and domestic water was supplied

from the Waimakariri River. The

race system was extended over

time and by 1889 it provided

water to the new Christchurch

Meat Company freezing works at

Islington.

The water race system is Brett’s

legacy to the people of the district

and after 144 years is still functioning

under the guardianship

of the Selwyn District Council.

The importance of the system to

the early settlers was summed up

by one local pioneer: ‘Water has

changed the whole face of nature

in the district, and life that was

hardly tolerable, is now worth

living.’

Brett was also noted as a

successful and influential

farmer, being active within

his local community. He was

a founding member of the

Courtenay Farmers Club in 1869,

which became the Courtenay

Agricultural and Pastoral

Association in 1880, holding

positions as the first president,

and later patron.

Colonel Brett died at

Christchurch in 1889, aged 80.

A monument spanning the main

water race at Kirwee was built

in 1930 in recognition of his

contribution in establishing water

supply for the Canterbury Plains

and remains a feature of the

township’s history.

Put down your roots

in Selwyn

Newcomers to Selwyn are being invited to join longer-term residents to literally put down roots in

the district.

A planting day is being held at Chamberlains Ford Recreation Reserve on Sunday 6 September

9.30am–12pm where Selwyn residents are invited to put down their roots by planting a native tree.

There are 1000 trees to be planted on the day, with people encouraged to bring families and leave

their mark on the Selwyn landscape for good.

The aim is to give newcomers to Selwyn an opportunity to increase their bond with their new

home, by symbolically and physically putting down roots. It is also about building community;

bringing together newer residents with those who have been here for a longer time, to meet, mix

and connect, Council Group Manager Community Services and Facilities, Denise Kidd says.

“In the same way as plants get nourishment from the soil through their roots and go on to grow,

thrive and spread, Council wants people to stay here, put down roots and improve Selwyn, for

now and into the future.”

Selwyn is one of nine councils recognised as Welcoming Communities under the Immigration New

Zealand Welcoming Communities programme, which recognises and supports work by councils

to help newcomers feel welcome and build connections.

An art hub for the community

Four years ago a former electrical store building sat empty on

Leeston’s High Street.

One day Ellesmere Art Group Trust member Averil Southward was

asked by the building’s landlord to brighten up the place with her

art in the window and before long people started ringing wanting to

purchase her work.

Today over 6,000 people visit this building each year to view the

many pieces of artwork displayed in the building’s windows and

gallery space.

The Lakeland Art Gallery, run by 19 volunteers, has a separate

tutor room used for workshops for the public and members of

the Ellesmere Art Group Trust. The workshops are funded by the

Council’s Creative Community Fund.

“It’s different to other art groups in that we’ve got a comfortable tutor

area all set up and a gallery where artists can display their art and be

with art the whole time. We’ve made it feel like home,” Averil says.

The fund goes towards art tutors and materials such as mosaic tiles

and acrylic paints for the workshops.

Averil has been a part of the Ellesmere Art Group Trust for ten

years and says the trust has been using the fund for many years –

long before she joined – which has enabled it to open this hub for

the community.

“People just love coming here. I’ve got a lovely elderly lady who

comes here, she’ll come in once a month because it puts a smile

on her face. You get these comments and it just makes you feel so

good, it’s nice if you can provide that for people,” she says.

It has even attracted new Selwyn residents exploring the area and

often they become trust members and volunteers.

“There’s hours and hours of work that goes into it but we’re very

proud of it and we’re hoping we can stay here for a really long time.”

Applications for the Creative Community Fund are now open. Visit

selwyn.govt.nz/artsfunding to find out more.

Large-scale water upgrades continuing

Four new water treatment plant upgrades have been completed as the major upgrade works to the

districts’ water systems continue.

Upgrades have been completed on treatment plants at Rakaia Huts, Tai Tapu, Claremont, Veuve Drive

in Lincoln and Gallipoli Street in Leeston, adding treatment options such as UV treatment.

The work is part of a $23 million district-wide programme of 59 capital works projects to build and

upgrade pump stations and water treatment plants, to increase capacity and improve water quality

and safety.

Work is also under way on treatment plant upgrades in Arthur’s Pass, Castle Hill, Dalethorpe,

Springston, West Melton and Te Pirita. A further seven upgrades are planned over the next two years in

Kirwee, Lincoln, Hororata, Darfield, Prebbleton, Springfield and Taumutu.

Council Group Manager Infrastructure Murray Washington says the upgrades are part of a significant

long-term commitment from the Council to keep improving this service, to keep up with growth and

health requirements.

“Clean, safe drinking water is an essential service and we’re committed to providing the best service

possible to make sure that people have access to a safe and sufficient supply.”

Selwyn Open: Old library becomes cave of treasures

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 Carol Gurney from Carol’s Closet.

After selling the Hororata Café, Carol Gurney wanted to raise money for St John’s Church, left damaged

by the 2010 earthquake.

That was when she decided to transform a vacant library space into an op-shop donating all profits to

the church.

Formerly the Hororata Library, the small room next to the Hororata Community Hall swapped books for

second-hand clothing, shoes, accessories, paintings and jewellery, becoming Carol’s Closet.

Walking into the store is like discovering Aladdin’s Cave, a space that looks small from the outside but is

larger than life on the inside with a range of hidden treasures and clothing, ranging from sizes eight to 24.

“I could almost count on one hand how many people leave without buying something, which to me, that

is amazing. There’s always something for everyone,” says store owner, Carol Gurney.

“I’ve always loved preloved clothing shops and so I thought why not!”

It became a community project with every clothing piece donated to the store,

then sorted and steam cleaned by Carol to make sure it is in good condition.

Carol receives donations from ladies who knit winter hats, blankets made by

the vicar and the most recent addition, a free library made out of an old fridge

“Sometimes the café might say to me, ‘The Porsche Car Club is coming out’.

So I might ring the club and say, ‘Would you like me to open up the Closet for

you?’ And they go, ‘Yes, the ladies will love it!’ ”

The store runs on a volunteer basis, open three days a week, but even when

it’s closed, Carol says to give her a call and she will be there in two minutes.

Business survey under way

The Council is looking to take the pulse of the business community

in Selwyn to better understand the current situation, challenges and

opportunities businesses are experiencing.

The survey will help the Council in its planning for activities to support

the business community, such as topics and speakers for the Council’s

planned ‘Businesses After 5’ series.

It will also help the Council advocate for local opportunities, as well

as share quality information with agencies, including government and

funders, to better inform their planning and decisions.

The Council is intending to run the survey at regular points in the future

to build and present a long-term picture.

Businesses can fill out the survey at Selwyn.govt.nz/BusinessSurvey2020

A NURSE who grew up

in Leeston has received a

major healthcare award.

Cassie Scaife had a

smile a mile wide as she

absorbed the news that

she’d been named Ryman

Healthcare’s nurse of the

year.

It was no small achievement

– Christchurchbased

Ryman Healthcare

is New Zealand’s largest

retirement village operator

and employs 620 nurses at

36 villages in NZ and in

Australia.

Anthony Wilding Retirement

Village has been

a big part of life for the

registered nurse.

She first started at the

village as a 17-year-old

school student, working in

the laundry and then the

kitchen teams when it first

opened in 2007.

Scaife first trained as a

paramedic in Wellington

after leaving school, filling

in her time with shifts as

a caregiver at Rita Angus

Retirement Village while

she was studying.

It was while working as

an ambulance officer that

she attended an emergency

A GROUP of West Melton

School pupils have been

recognised for their recent

successes.

An award ceremony

was held at the school a

fortnight ago.

At the event, the school

cup champions for the

cross-country were given

out.

The recipients were

Ethan for the junior boys,

Eleanor for the junior girls,

Brooklyn for the senior

boys and Nikita for the

senior girls.

Brooklyn broke the

and realised that her destiny

lay in working as an

aged-care nurse.

“We went on a callout to

look after an older woman

who was in trouble. It was

when I was caring for her

that I realised that looking

after older people was what

I really wanted to do,” said

Scaife.

“I think my workmates

were surprised, but that’s

what I wanted to do.’’

She returned to Leeston

to begin a three-year

nursing course at CPIT

and later returned to

where it all started at

Anthony Wilding to work

as a registered nurse on the

afternoon team.

No one was more

delighted with her win

than her mum and sister,

who were on hand for her

awards night celebration

along with daughters

Phoebe, 5, and Hazel, 3.

“It’s an amazing place

and team to work with,’’

said Scaife.

“You never hear them

complain no matter what

is going on. They just get

on and put in the effort to

care for everyone and to do

school’s record for the year

8 boys.

Promotions and sports

co-ordinator Rita Spadoni

said Brooklyn, Eleanor and

Ethan also participated in

the Selwyn Central Zone

cross-country at Halswell

Quarry.

Brooklyn came in first

place for the year 8 boys,

Eleanor in second for the

year 6 girls and Ethan in

third for the year 5 boys.

They have all qualified

for the Canterbury

cross-country that was

expected to be held on

their best for them.’’

She was also grateful for

Jeannie Sales, Anthony

Wilding’s clinical manager,

and Sharon Armstrong,

village manager, for their

backing over the years.

Said Scaife: “Jeannie has

been a great mentor. She’s

always there and makes

time for those long conversations

you need about the

lessons you’re learning and

the problems that come up.

“She told me early on to

listen carefully and to ask

the right questions to guide

conversations, particularly

with families.

“It’s been great advice

and something I try to pass

on.

“Sharon’s always efficient

and supportive, no matter

what the problem is.’’

A number of residents

are retired farmers from

the Leeston area.

“I’ve grown up knowing

them and their families so

there’s a real community

feel to what we do,” she

said.

“Talking to them, seeing

that they are happy and

knowing their quirks is all

part of the job.’’

Pupils celebrate success

Wednesday last week but

has been postponed due to

Covid-19.

Also recognised at the

ceremony were Emily,

Ruby and Isabel who

came in first at the Interface

Primary Schools

Minecraft competition

in the year one to six

category.

They had to create an

eco-friendly world to go

with the theme of ‘build a

better future’.

They won a Meccano

personal robot for their

class.

a new species found in his backyard at Lincoln. His column

Tiny sap-sucker only

lives on kōwhai

PSYLLIDS ARE small sapsucking

insects like aphids,

and are sometimes called

jumping lice.

They resemble miniature

cicadas and there are 4000

species worldwide.

One common New

Zealand endemic species is

the greater kōwhai psyllid

(Psylla apicalis) which is

1.65 to 2.0mm in length.

Kōwhai is the only host for

this species.

This psyllid can sometimes

reach pest proportions

between August and

December.

The species was thought

to be quite variable until

recently when two Lincoln

University scientists discovered

there were in fact

two similar looking species

living on kōwhai.

Dr Martoni and Dr Armstrong

curiosity using DNA

on kōwhai and in spite of its tiny size, can reach

pest proportions between August and December.

presence of a second kōwhai

psyllid species, which is

called Psylla frodobagginsi

Frodo Baggins) due to its

is not only smaller (1.24-

1.56mm long) but is also

lighter in colour, and has

EXPECTATIONS are a funny

thing.

Naturally, I try to avoid them

when I’m tasting, as they could

cloud one’s judgement and

impartiality.

I know the identity of the wines

in a tasting, but they are always

masked and in random order: this

is dubbed “single blind tasting”.

My regular tasting duo

of Collins and McLaren are

informed of the wine style and

vintage spread, but know neither

the identities nor order in which

they are served: this is “double

blind tasting”.

The average price of today’s

wines created an expectation of

class, which was borne out in the

glass.

Primary sector jobs for

kiwis gets a boost

A new campaign launched today will attract

people to vital food and fibre sector jobs, says

Agriculture Minister Damien O’Connor.

Mr O’Connor recently launched Opportunity

Grows Here – a website and marketing

campaign funded through Budget 2020 - to

attract 10,000 New Zealanders into food and

fibre jobs over four years.

“Our primary sector is a huge part of our

economy and our brand and it’s going to play

a big role in our economic recovery,” Damien

O’Connor said.

“It’s a sector that brings tens of billions of

dollars to the New Zealand economy every year

and accounts for nearly one in every seven jobs,

but more Kiwi workers are needed to support

its growth. We want to redeploy recently

unemployed Kiwis to help fill the gap.

“It can be hard to find information when you

are looking for a job and so we’ve built this site

to bring opportunities across the primary sector

together into the one place, making it easier for

employers and for job seekers.

“Many unemployed people are talented and

have skills that are readily transferrable. They

just need to know that these opportunities exist

– that’s what this campaign is all about.

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

SELWYN TIMES

It’s a world record – or is it?

Leeston arable farmer David Birkett has

unofficially smashed the world record

wheat yield by at least 1 tonne/ha. In

February he had claimed a yield of 16.7t/

ha from that season’s harvest, edging out

the current world record of 16.52t/ha.

Birkett says he has now received

confirmed weighbridge figures putting

his yield at 17.59t/ha – beating the

current world record by 1.07t/ha.

“I’ve got confirmation we’re well and

truly above the record,” he told Rural

News.

However, he still cannot claim the

official record because it was not

registered and monitored as an official

attempt.

“They changed the rule a couple of

years ago so now you have to advise

them of the paddock you’re going for

and who your advisors are and so forth,

prior to sowing the crop – which is a bit

ridiculous, to be honest, because at any

time you don’t know which paddock will

yield the best.”

Previously, all that was needed was that

the harvesting and weighing be attested

by, say, a Justice of the Peace, he says.

The current holder is Rodney Smith, of

Northumberland, Britain. New Zealand

growers held the two previous records.

“To get the world record back for NZ

would be a big job now,” says Birkett.

He has not registered anything for the

current season.

Birkett, chairman of the Foundation

for Arable Research, farms a thirdgeneration

family farm of 180ha. He

runs about a dozen crops on a five year

rotation, including wheat, barley, peas

and beans, clover and grass seeds for the

local market, and vegetable seeds mainly

for export.

His record-breaking crop of last season

was Oakley wheat, a feed variety, which

tends to be lower-protein but higher

yielding than milling varieties. Most of it

went as feed to local chicken farms.

Birkett says there was no secret to

the record-breaking crop, just good

management. “If you do the basics well

you’re 90% there.”

This season’s crop is “looking pretty

good,” he says, having just finished

tillering at growth stage 31-32. It was

sown in mid-April.

Birkett believes a long time in the

ground is important for high yields.

Wheat puts down long roots and seems

to enjoy dry conditions, but Birkett

says the continuing dry is now “pretty

worrying”.

He irrigates from wells and says Leeston

is lucky to have a high water table.

However, the groundwater level is now

very low for this time of year.

“We’d normally be about 1.5m coming

out of winter and we’re currently at 3.5m.

We got down to 5m this year, which is the

lowest we’ve ever seen.”

Gardening

Herbs like a place in the sun Limited for space?

Grow in containers

ALL THE promise of spring is

out there in the herb garden.

It’s a good idea to plant herbs

close to the kitchen — the

further away they are, the less

likely you are to pick them,

especially in rainy weather.

Most of the cooking herbs like

a place in the sun, though mint

will grow in a damp shady spot.

If you don’t have much space,

stick to those herbs you know

you’ll use in cooking.

Consider growing them in

pots, or plant herbs in the

flower garden — most are quite

decorative.

Fresh coriander is an

important ingredient in many

Thai and Indian dishes and

now’s the time for planting the

seeds of this annual herb.

Coriander plants are taprooted

and don’t transplant well,

so sow seeds where you want

the plants to grow and thin out

when necessary.

The seeds are slow to

germinate, so don’t give up on

them too soon.

Some varieties of chives

die down in the winter, while

others stay green the whole year

through.

If rust is a problem,

cut the clumps back and wait

for fresh rust-free growth. If

that doesn’t work, it may be best

FLAVOUR: Sow coriander where you want the plants to

grow and thin out.

to plant some new bulbs in a

different spot.

Clumps need to be divided

and replanted every few years

in any case or the chives get

overcrowded and loose their

vigour.

Garlic chives have a stronger

flavour than regular chives and

the flowers are white and starry

rather than pom-pom shaped.

The plants grow more slowly

and the leaves

stand up to cooking a bit better.

Parsley comes in two forms –

the curly-leaved variety and flat

or broad-leaved parsley, often

known as Italian parsley.

The latter is currently more

trendy but at a pinch you can

usually substitute one for the

other.

SIMPLE, uncluttered garden

design is especially appropriate

when space is limited.

Whether you want a serene

look or something dramatic, you

can achieve it by mass planting

just a few carefully chosen

plant species, each with strong

features.

Flowers are not essential (year

round good looks and healthy

foliage are more important), but

as seasonal highlights they can

make the garden all the more

interesting.

Mass planting by itself can be

dull. Break up the monotony by

choosing an accent plant that

can be repeated throughout the

design. Planting in pots adds

extra zing and makes it easy to

change or relocate your accent

plants when you feel like a new

look, or a change between seasons.

As well as accents, every garden

needs a strong focal point.

Often a sculpture, this could also

be a piece of furniture or garden

architecture, a water feature,

or just one stunning plant in a

spectacular pot.

Container gardening is a great

way to enjoy getting your hands

dirty. The trend is towards sim-

CONTAINERS: Big pots and

less of them is best

plicity – bigger pots and less of

them.

Classy containers deserve

classy plants, and those that last

the distance. For pots in prime

positions choose plants with a

strong well-defined shape, preferably

symmetrical so that they

look good from all angles.

When we plant whole groups

of a few carefully chosen varieties,

the effect is bold and deliberate,

bringing strength and

character to the garden.

But not all plants are suitable

for mass planting. Anything

with a downtime is going to be

a blot on your landscape for a

large part of the year. So the first

priority is to choose a plant that

looks great for at least most of

the year.

Extending the life

of your spouting

Birds nesting in your home’s spouting

is not only be a noise issue but the eggs

and young chicks can also attract vermin

which can then get inside roof cavities and

chew through wiring creating a fire hazard

within your home.

Gumleaf Gutter Guard is an effective

way of preventing birds from making

nests in the spouting and soiling walls and

windows with their droppings. The guards

can also protect tank water from being

contaminated, ensuring the safety and

quality of the water supply.

Another key advantage of Gumleaf

Gutter Guard is that it prevents leaf litter

from gathering in the spouting.

“Leaf litter remains damp and acidic

and that wrecks the spouting,” says owner

Rohan.

“By having Gumleaf Gutter Guard

installed, the life of the spouting is

extended to the life of the roof.”

Snow can also damage spouting, and

again Gumleaf Gutter Guard will protect

the spouting by spreading the load, Rohan

says.

Developed in Australia more than 20

years ago, Gumleaf Gutter Guard has been

providing a quality and effective solution

in New Zealand for the last decade, Rohan

says. Much of his work comes from repeat

business, with customers happy with both

the product quality and the service he

provides.

Customers requesting a quote will

receive it within 24 hours, and Rohan says

he will “go anywhere to provide a quote”.

He is also available Monday to Saturday

to speak to customers who call him.

“Even if I am working on a job, I will

talk to anyone who calls me,” he says.

Once a quote is accepted, the job is

started within 10 days, with installation

on an average sized house taking one to

two days. Rohan also does any necessary

minor repair jobs on the roof at the same

time.

To discuss your requirements with

Spring cleaning

ingrained in our

cultures

Spring cleaning has cultural and

religious roots and also ties back to

keeping winter houses warm with fires

and kerosene which filled houses with

soot and grime.

According to the SpareFoot blog spring

cleaning is a hallmark of Jewish, Iranian

and Chinese cultures.

In ancient Jewish tradition, they would

clean their home to prepare for Passover,

in part to remove any bread that wasn’t

unleavened. That’s because the Jewish

slaves in Egypt survived by eating only

unleavened bread, so having any yeastmade

bread in the house during Passover

isn’t allowed. By thoroughly cleaning

the entire house, including all crumbs,

they could be ensured no non-Kosher

remnants remained.

Spring cleaning is also ritual part of

some Christian faiths as well. Members of

the Greek Orthodox Church for example

typically clean on the first day of lent,

which they call Clean Monday. Catholic

churches conduct a through cleaning of

their altars on the day before Good Friday.

In the Iranian culture, the Persian new

year, known as Nowruz, falls on the first

day of spring and includes a ritual known

as “khooneh takouni” which means

“shaking the house,” entailing a thorough

house clean.

Chinese New Year preparations

incorporate a spring housecleaning called

Little New Year or Xiaonian, designed

to symbolically rid their home of any

negativity and any lingering spirits.

In the United States, spring cleaning

was important in frontier homes to

remove the accumulation of soot from

winter fires that built up on poor quality

window glass and needed to be cleaned so

you could see out the windows.

In addition most log homes in Texas

and parts of the southern United States

were “chinked” for the winter, which

entailed filling the spaces between logs

with mud. As summer approached, the

chinking was removed to allow air to

circulate, a modern-day “screen” of sorts.

Housekeepers would finish the

process by disinfecting and refreshing

their homes with vinegar and herbs,

which are great choices still today as

natural alternatives to harsh household

disinfectants. Another reason to wait

until spring is because it was finally warm

enough to open windows and doors to let

the place air out.

Even these days we still feel that pull

to throw open our windows and remove

all the long-settled dust and dirt from

our home environments. Happy spring

cleaning for 2020.

Beautiful lawns make

difference to how your

home looks

A beautiful new lawn can really set off

your home and makes a huge difference to

how it looks.

Canterbury Lawns are specialists in

great looking lawns whether it is an

instant roll-out lawn or hydroseeding.

Their roll-out lawns use top quality

products and are locally sourced.

Hydroseeding is a cost effective option

and can still be applied during the cooler

months but may take longer to germinate

depending on the location and how

much sun the area gets, and of course, the

weather. Spring is the perfect time of year

to get your new lawn for summer!

Hydroseeding is a spray-on application

of water, grass seed, wood fibre mulch,

fertiliser and tackifier (a glue which holds

the mix to the surface it is sprayed on).

This method gives the best chance for

the seeds to germinate and become your

beautiful green and luscious lawn.

Canterbury Lawns owners Zac and

Ashley Swale live locally and can give the

best advice on growing the perfect lawn.

Watering is key and Zac recommends

having an automated irrigation system

installed to make the job easier, more

Busy nursery at

your door step

Southern Woods Nursery is busier

than ever, having recently experienced a

surge in customer business, partly due to

the underpass now being open and the

lockdown.

“We believe that during lockdown when

everyone was at home they had the time

to think about what they wanted to do

with their outdoor areas. And how to live

more self sufficiently,” says marketing

manager Rico Mannall.

Fruit trees, in particular, have been

popular with a huge range of Southern

Woods to select from their huge range

of ripening fruit trees including apples,

pears, feijoas, berry fruit and apricots.

Heading towards the warmer

months there is also a great selection of

ornamentals and natives which can add

some height and structure to the garden.

The purpose-built retail store has been

specifically designed with the customer

in mind making it easy to find hedging,

natives, deciduous trees, bushes, grasses,

spots of colour or ground cover.

Most of them are grown on site and

looked after by the team of 40 dedicated

staff who are on hand to help, are happy

to provide free advice based on their

many years in the business and knowledge

of which plants to suit your property’s

location, soil type and aspect.

If you are unsure exactly what you are

looking for a landscape architect and

designer are also on-site to make your

selection even easier. Another option is to

take in your plans and they can help with

deciding on which plants to use.

Along with the plants, there is also

a selection of premium tools, planting

accessories and disease control products.

“Our tools are top quality and come

from Japan and Germany so they will last

a long time,” says Rico.

Customers can check the Southern

Woods website, www.southernwoods.

Vibrant Veloster joins long line of coupes

I KNOW LIFE often means

disappointments but it will take

me a bit of time to get over missing

out on a drive of Hyundai’s new i30

N fastback – a high-performance

car based around its hot-hatch

stablemate.

See, the turbocharged 2-litre

manual was a casualty of the

coronavirus level 4 lockdown, I was

due to have it within that period

but it has since been seconded to

duties in other parts of the country.

That aside, the other Hyundai

models I was scheduled into have

arrived, and a week with the latest

generation Hyundai Veloster

almost made up for not stepping

into the i30 N.

The Veloster has been around

since 2012, and has just undergone

a major transformation. Saying

that, the one element that makes

the Veloster stand out from the

crowd hasn’t been changed. What

appears to be a traditional twodoor

coupe is actually a three-door.

Yes, there are two doors on the

passenger side and just one on the

driver’s side.

The concept was first introduced

with safety in mind, the rationale

being that when children are seated

in the rear they can only exit from

the footpath side of the vehicle,

egress to the road is denied. Bear in

mind, too, that the Veloster is only

a four-seater.

Some might say the design of

the Veloster is outlandish, I’d say

it is bold yet trendy, it is fresh and

with an aggressive body and with

vivid colours to choose from,

the Veloster certainly makes a

statement. The evaluation car was

finished in a matte gun metal grey,

it drew a lot of attention during the

time it was in my care.

The Veloster arrives with two

engine options – a 2-litre naturally

aspirated unit that develops

110kW. Or else there is a 1.6-litre

turbocharged option – the 150kW

engine that powers several other

Hyundai and Kia models.

The evaluation car was the

latter, and it is an engine I’m quite

familiar with, it is no outright

powerhouse like the engine in the

i30 N, but it is a feisty little unit and

stands out for its honesty and fussfree

behaviour. Although it must

be said there is genuine exhaust

sound, there’s a constant throb

under load and an enticing crackle

between gears.

When the Veloster first

appeared, it was Hyundai’s first

full-production vehicle with a

dual clutch gearbox; that type of

transmission is still used, although

it now gets seven gears that can

be manipulated through steering

wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

In terms of driving, DCT units

can be treated much like a normal

STYLISH: The Hyundai Veloster is characterised by a short,

squat rear quarter.

HYUNDAI VELOSTER: Bold wheels add to its aggressive looks.

automatic transmission, the big

difference is that in itself it works

like a manual but without a manual

clutch and, of course, there’s no

power-robbing characteristics

of traditional torque converter

system.

The result is a quick shifting unit

that doesn’t load the engine, power

is clean, and with a strong torque

figure (265Nm) and available low,

and all of the way between 1500

to 4500rpm, the Veloster turbo is

a quick-reacting car which is no

slouch against the stopwatch.

It will lunge to 100km/h in

7.5sec, which will satisfy those

who are happy with moderate

performance, but for me the

big surprise is the mid-speed

performance, it will scorch through

a highway overtake (80-120km/h)

in 4.2sec, made possible through

solid turbo boost and quickshifting

ratios which are ideal

for the wide cross-section of our

driving styles and journeys.

On the subject of figures,

the Veloster turbo is rated by

Hyundai with a 7.1-litre per

100km combined cycle fuel usage

average. At 100km/h I recorded an

instantaneous readout of 5l/100km

with the engine working over freely

at 2000rpm.

I guess if you explore the

turbo boost frequently it will be

hard to match Hyundai’s claim,

• Price – Hyundai Veloster,

$52,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4250mm; width,

1800mm; height, 1409mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1591cc, 150kW,

265Nm, seven-speed dual

clutch automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 7.5sec

• Fuel usage – 7.1l/100km

and with just a 50-litre fuel tank

you need to be mindful fill-ups

may come around quicker than

expected.

Nevertheless, I enjoyed the

power and strength of that wee

engine, it is delightful and provides

the fun factor when you feel the

need for a quick burst, taking into

account that several drive modes

allow the driver to choose how the

car behaves, from economical to

sport.

In terms of handling, the

Veloster feels sharp up front with

definite turn-in. Sport specification

Michelin tyres (225/40 x 18in)

have high-grip properties and

combined with a fully independent

suspension the car feels well

attached to the road.

Ride quality isn’t jeopardised by

a definite firming of the dampers

and springs and at just 1.4m tall

gravitational movement in a corner

needn’t be considered.

The Veloster turbo is only

available in one fully-specced

level – Limited. It is loaded with

goodies such as full leather, heated

and cooled seats, heated steering

wheel, head-up display, satellite

navigation, keyless entry and

ignition, and all the other bells and

whistles that make up Hyundai’s

top level trim spec. It also gets a full

safety suite of technologies.

Hyundai has had a long

history of producing two-door

coupes, even though you could

argue the Veloster is essentially a

three-door. When I first started

writing about cars in 1988, one of

the first I drove was the Scoupe,

Hyundai’s first sporty car, that

transformed into what Hyundai

called simply Coupe around 1996,

the Tiburon followed, then in 2012

the Veloster first landed in New

Zealand.

That history has served

Hyundai well, the Veloster is a

beautifully-made car and one

which is both fun and exciting. It

dares to be different with its styling,

but that is part of its appeal, if you

want to stand out in a crowd, at

$52,990 ($45,990 non-turbo), it’s a

relatively affordable way to make a

statement.

SELWYN TIMES

How do you live the life you’ve always wanted?

There are many things to consider when

making the decision to move into a

lifestyle village. Everyone has different

requirements, whether it be a true community

atmosphere with an inclusive social scene, or

be situated in a new suburb where everything

you need is close by, or well-designed quality

home which supports and caters to all aging

requirements. Whatever your fancy, it’s rather

easy to see Woodcroft Estate as your new

home. “Our residents are better off in every

way,” says Manor Group CEO Adam Yates.

“Here, they enjoy a warm, safe and relaxing

environment within a friendly community,

while the onsite manager looks after any

concerns or maintenance issues. “All those

jobs you had to do to maintain your old house

are taken care of by the village staff. “They

manage any repairs and maintenance to your

home, looking after the gardens and lawn

mowing, providing security, lighting and even

washing windows.” But there is something

even more special about Woodcroft Estate.

A model of home ownership that

benefits you more

“Our residents are better off financially”

says Adam. “Our Next Generation model is

designed to be much fairer than traditional

models, allowing residents to receive the

capital gain when the unit is sold, less a

small fee. Our aim is to free our residents

from their worries, while residents get the

financial freedom that comes from retaining

and building on their equity.” The Next

Generation Model means you have choice.

Whether you gift your chosen charity, leave

a legacy to your grandchildren through

contributing to their education or first

home, the choice is in your hands.

Life is for living

For those who have already made the move

to Woodcroft Estate – you’ll meet likeminded

people who are living life to the

full. Woodcroft Estate residents have never

been happier – residing comfortably in the

fast growing and vibrant new township of

Rolleston – where a library and community

centre are close by. There is a swimming

pool and two medical centres, as well as two

supermarkets. There are even hearing and eye

specialists! Plenty of cafes to meet friends,

and delicious bakeries for that morning tea –

everything you need to feel right at home.

You will find

Woodcroft Estate

at 34 Kendon Drive in

Rolleston’s Levi Park.

ensuite plus WIR. Offering the perfect retreat for the kids,

two private patios (one covered), kitchen, two double

bedrooms & bathroom with laundry. A stunning sweeping

driveway leads to ample off-street parking, double

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Be inspired

A showhome to stimulate your creative juices was

recently opened by Build7 at Flemington. Not just

another home, if you’re looking to build, this is a

must see.

At 235sqm, this four bedroom home is spacious

and modern with a comfortable feel. The exterior

cladding seamlessly blends into the entryway, where

a skylight provides natural light.

The living area has plenty of natural light too. Here

triple and double stackers lead out to a large deck

and garden and a cathedral ceiling adds a sense of

grandeur. A sunny and light yet intimate lounge

leads off from the dining space.

With plenty of bench space, a walk-in pantry and

quality appliances (including two ovens and space

for a large refrigerator), the kitchen will please

those who love to cook or entertain. Its u-shaped

configuration and ample cabinetry ensure there is a

space for everything. Vinyl planking in the kitchen,

dining and living area add to the practicality.

The feeling of spaciousness is enhanced with

a 2.55 metre stud height throughout the home.

Thought has also gone into the bedroom layout.

“We positioned the master bedroom to be a

retreat,” explains Jamie Cowan who with his wife

Francesca, own Build7 Christchurch.

The master bedroom is indeed a haven. In

addition to a walk-in robe, it has additional built in

shelving and full length mirror in its entryway, as

well as an ensuite and sliders out to the deck.

Both the main bathroom and the ensuite have

fully tiled floors. The shower in the ensuite has

tiled walls and floor, a hanging vanity and a toilet.

The main bathroom has shower, bath and hanging

vanity, while the separate toilet has its own small

vanity.

Consideration has gone into the home’s design

and features. There are details like a built-in seat

conveniently placed in the passageway by the garage

so there is somewhere to take the boots off. There is

good storage with generous cabinetry in the kitchen,

attic storage trusses in the garage, and a linen

cupboard close to the separate laundry. Plenty of

windows and skylights ensure lots of natural light.

The home’s in-vogue colour scheme will also be

of interest to many viewers. The external cladding

is Midland Subiaco brick offset with metal feature

cladding which matches the long-run Colorsteel

Flaxpod roofing.

Constructed to Build7’s lifestyle specification, the

showhome reflects middle to higher quality features

and fittings.

Build7’s new Flemington

showhome is located at 29 Craig

Thompson Drive in Lincoln. To view,

call Tony on 027 858 8489.
