Review under way after

house fire reignited

• By Matt Slaughter

FIREFIGHTERS say they

did all they could to

prevent horse trainers Tony

and Lyn Prendergast’s West

Melton house going up in

flames.

The Weedons Ross Rd

property was destroyed a few

hours after fire crews thought

they had put out an initial

blaze.

Prendergast, 84, who was

terminally ill with cancer, was

pulled out of the house by Lyn

when the first fire started about

5pm on August 9.

Firefighters arrived, contained

the blaze and thought they had

put it out. Lyn was allowed to go

back in and retrieve her phone

and wallet.

But at 1.30am insulation and

bird nests in the ceiling space

reignited destroying the house

and all of the Prendergast’s

horse racing trophies and

memorabilia.

Prendergast succumbed to

his cancer a week after the fire.

His family decided to keep the

second blaze and loss of trophies

from him.

THERE’S a potential powder

keg ticking away in Hororata

in the form of its planned

new community centre (see

pages 9-10).

The $4.6 million centre will

be funded from a variety of

sources if it goes ahead.

The planned centre is

causing division to the point

people are frightened to go

public with their viewpoint.

There is concern over who

will pay for the ongoing

running costs if the district

council gives it the tick,

and why several hundred

thousand dollars sitting in a

community fund should be

used to help build it.

Another notable rugby feat

at the weekend. Waihora’s

Mark Maitland played his

200th division 1 game. A top

effort.

District’s economy

buoyant in spite of pandemic

SELWYN’S ECONOMY is

showing positive signs in spite

of the impacts of the Covid-19

pandemic.

The district was one of the few

in the country whose economy

grew in the year to June according

to economic profile figures

released by analysts Infometrics.

The figures show Selwyn was

one of only 11 districts where

gross domestic

product grew

over the past

year. It is up 1.3

per cent over the

year to June.

Across

Sam

Broughton

Canterbury,

GDP fell by 2.3

per cent and

by 2.1 per cent

nationally.

The district also saw an

increase in consumer spending

in the past year, it is up three

per cent due to strong spending

in the first three quarters of the

year.

House sales rose by eight per

cent and house prices by two per

cent.

Infometrics data shows the

STABLE: The district’s economy has fared well compared

to the rest of the country with a 1.3 per cent jump in gross

domestic product over the last year. ​

number of residential building

consents issued in the district increased

by 45.2 per cent during

the year to June.

The number of consents in

New Zealand increased by 8.1

per cent over the same period.

Tourism spending was down

by 7.6 per cent, though the drop

was significantly less than the 12

per cent fall across Canterbury

and nationally.

The number of people receiving

Jobseeker support rose by

41.9 per cent with 860 people

receiving it and 124 people

receiving the Covid-19 income

relief payment in the district.

This is up from 421 people

receiving Jobseeker support in

June last year.

However, the unemployment

rate in Selwyn remained unchanged

from the same time last

year, at 2.3 per cent.

Mayor Sam Broughton said

the figures give some comfort,

but the full impacts of the

pandemic show the need for

caution.

Selwyn is well placed, based

on our strong community and

diversified economy and the figures

back that up. However, they

also show signs that many of our

households and businesses are

hard-pressed and we face challenging

times ahead.

“Our council is continuing

to support local New Zealand

businesses, and we will all need

to keep supporting each other as

things continue to change over

the coming months.”

‘I believe they

did it right’

• From page 1

Area fire commander Dave

Berry said firefighters had done

all they could have to ensure

the fire did not flare up. An

operational review of what had

happened was under way.

“What the crews did, they had

thermal imaging cameras and

they went through the whole

place three times with the cameras,”

said Berry.

“They then hung around and

had a debrief and then went back

with the cameras. I believe they

did it right.

“We have what we call an

operational review. We just look

at the actions and active strategies

and what our learnings can

be from there and training or

response needed.”

The cause of the first fire is

still being investigated but it is

believed to have been started by

an electrical appliance.

The Prendergast’s son-inlaw

Dean Lory said while he

understands fires can reignite, it

was “bizarre” it happened

just hours after crews left the

scene.

“Whether their thermal

imaging camera was actually

working properly, you don’t

know.”

Two more sought over

caravan break-in

• By Devon Bolger

TWO MEN have been arrested

and another two are being sought

over an alleged attack on a man in a

caravan in Darfield.

A group of men, allegedly

armed with pool cues and

wrenches, forced their way into a

caravan on McLaughlin St about

10pm on August 9.

The occupant, a man in his

20s, suffered minor injuries. He

managed to fight the group off.

Two men from Darfield are

facing charges of burglary with a

weapon in relation to the incident.

Detective Sergeant Michael

Varnam said police are asking the

public to help them identify two

other men who may be able to

assist with the investigation.

They are not believed to live in

the district, but spend time in the

area, he said.

“One of the people who has been

arrested is a previous associate of

the victim so it wasn’t just random,

there is some sort of bad blood

there but we don’t know the actual

motive,” said Varnam.

Nothing was taken from the

caravan.

HELP: Police are asking

for the public’s help in

identifying these two men,

who may be able to assist

with inquiries into a caravan

break-in in Darfield. ​

If anyone has any

information or is able to

identify the males, please

Community patrol

helps police; group gets new vehicle

• By Devon Bolger

VOLUNTEER community

patrollers will help police combat

car and building site thefts.

The Selwyn Community

Watch has been tasked with

door-knocking in the district to

educate people about keeping

their possessions safe.

Senior Sergeant Stephen

McDaniel said the new strategy

will involve the community

watch and possibly other similar

groups.

“It is a three-pronged approach,

one is going to be approaching

areas where car theft

has happened. We will drop

flyers and door-knock to give

them information on why it is

happening,” he said.

“We will be also going to

building sites and having

face-to-face meetings with site

managers.”

Lastly, police and the community

watch will be trying to identify

householders with security

cameras who can be contacted if

crime occurs in the area.

McDaniel said they are still

determining exactly where

they will be door-knocking but

it will be areas that are prone to

thefts.

In May Selwyn Times reported

residents in the Rosemerryn subdivision

in Lincoln were sharing

security camera video in a bid to

catch thieves.

The move came after burglars

struck at a house under construction,

stealing whiteware.

Resident Simon Bennett said

the footage, shared amongst a

residents’ Facebook group, had

been sent to police.

The new police strategy

comes as the community watch

purchased a new $30,000 patrol

vehicle which will help them

keep the streets safe.

Community watch member

Murray Allison said it is good to

have the new Mazda CX-5.

“It is absolutely brilliant to

have a modern car with all of the

safety features. It has all the bells

and whistles.

“It is a very safe car and that’s

paramount for us. It is great we

The car was purchased with

Open day

for new

clubrooms

THE ROLLESTON Rugby Club

is holding an open day this Friday

to mark the relocation of their

clubrooms to Foster Park.

The clubrooms have also

undergone a full refurbishment of

the inside and outside.

Said club vice president Mark

Leonard: “We’ve put a huge

amount of time and effort into

this and we would like to show

it off to the wider community as

best we can.”

Sponsors, committee and life

members will meet for a ribboncutting

ceremony at 6pm while

the public is welcome from 7pm.

Free membership will also be

on offer for the next 12 months.

The club had to vacate its

Rolleston Reserve site to make

way for the Rolleston Town

Centre development.

The clubrooms were moved into

two sections in February this year

by Laing Properties before the

refurbishment work started.

The district council has also

provided new changing rooms at

Foster Park.

Pak’N Save could replace New World

• By Devon Bolger

THE NEW World supermarket

in Rolleston may become a

Pak’N Save.

The proposed move was included

in the draft Master Plan

for the town centre which was

adopted last week.

In the plan it also states if

the supermarket is to become a

Pak’N Save, the New World will

be demolished.

District council group manager

property Douglas Marshall

said a resource consent application

from Foodstuffs for a possible

Pak’N Save on their site had

been granted.

“No further applications from

Foodstuffs have been lodged

with council. As with any resource

consent, the applicant has

up to five years to exercise this

consent.

“With regards to the council’s

planning for the Rolleston Town

Centre, it was important for the

council to consider what impact

possible developments nearby

would have.”

Hence why the proposed

Pak’N Save is included in the

Master Plan even though the site

is outside of the Rolleston Town

Centre, Marshall said.

FoodStuffs head of corporate

CHANGE: The New World supermarket may become a Pak’N Save with the district

council’s Douglas Marshall (inset) saying it has granted resource consent for the move.

affairs Antoinette Laird would

not confirm whether the change

is going ahead.

“Foodstuffs is currently evaluating

the design proposal for the

Rolleston Town Centre and is

yet to decide on an outcome that

can best service the Rolleston

community,” she said.

Another interesting feature of

the plan is space for a cinema.

“The community has been

keen on a cinema in Rolleston

for a number of years and we are

keen to be able to deliver on that

if we can.

“The council is continuing

to work with various parties to

identify possible tenants and

make sure the town centre delivers

in the best possible way for

the community.”

The New World supermarket

in Rolleston has been operating

since 2000. Countdown opened

in 2011.

The Rolleston Town Centre

project has been the subject of

significant discussion over the

past 10 years.

The draft Master Plan includes

a preliminary concept for the

reserve including passive recreational

areas as well as youth and

sensory spaces.

A sensory garden is planned

to be a space that is accessible to

all residents including those with

diverse needs.

A district council spokesman

said public consultation on the

plan will begin shortly.

Lincoln manse

building

still up for sale

NOBODY APPEARS interested

in buying Lincoln’s old manse

building for $1.

The building is owned by the

Lincoln Union Church. Member

Alex Dunlop said they have had

nine interested parties so far but

none have progressed toward taking

it.

He said the building has now

been advertised on Trade Me and

they are feeling hopeful this will

lead to a sale.

The manse, which was built in

1889, is being offered up for relocation

as the church can no longer

afford to maintain it.

“We have built a new hall next to

our church and will no longer require

the old Manse. We are keen

for someone to remove the manse

to make a new life for it.”

Mr Dunlop said they are offering

the building for $1 in the

hope that someone will appreciate

the history and the architectural

significance of the building.

Demolition had been planned

for March this year but has been

deferred.

Rolleston Costume and Event Hire

expands with a move to Iport

Rolleston Costume and Event Hire

has just moved into new purposebuilt

premises in Freight Drive in

Rolleston’s Iport industrial zone to

accommodate their expanding

range of services.

Costume hire has always been the

core of Deborah and Kirk’s business.

They started hiring costumes out

of their garage and grew into a

purpose-built building at home

before outgrowing that too. “After

eight years we now have more than

3,000 costumes available for hire,

plus a range of accessories for hire

or sale,” says Deborah.

Rolleston Costume and Event

Hire has just about every type of

costume you can imagine, and

caters for both children and adults,

with a size range that goes from

small to plus sizes.

If you want to make a statement at

the next themed party, check out

Rolleston Costume and Event Hire’s

new website. The hire cost is $20 for

children or $35 for adults.

The company is excited to have

expanded the business with a

growing range of items for events.

This includes the basics like tables

and chairs, as well as themed

backdrops (think Halloween,

the 1980s or 1950s), mobile bars,

gangster car and Kombie van

props, wedding archways, flower

and greenery walls and creepy

Halloween or wild Western props.

“We also have an amazing photo

booth, candy floss and popcorn

machines, as well as snow, fog and

bubble machines, donut walls and

so much more! If we haven’t got

what a customer is looking for we’ll

do our best to get it if it augments

our hire range,” says Deborah

Boutique dress hire is a new service

that they have just introduced.

“We have a growing range of good

quality dresses to hire for $60 – the

type you would wear to the races

or a wedding or special occasion –

in a wide range of styles, available

in everything from size 4 to 22. We

have fascinators and accessories

to go with them,” she says. Why buy

when you can hire for the day?

Rolleston Costume and Event Hire’s

website has the option to book

items online, but Deborah says it

is a work in progress with so many

items to add, so it is best to call

Rolleston Costume and Event Hire

to check if something isn’t listed.

You can find Rolleston Costume

and Event Hire at 18 Freight Drive,

Rolleston Iport – via their website

www.rollestoncostumes.co.nz or

Google Maps. Hours: 10am - 5pm

Mondays to Fridays with extended

hours to 7pm on Thursdays, and

10am - 2pm on Saturdays, phone

03 347 4595.

Rolleston

Costume

& Event Hire

We have a huge variety of

adults and children’s costumes

and accessories catering for

all sizes making it easy to find

a costume to suit your fancy

dress or themed party.

Our event hire collection is growing

by the day and includes flower walls,

back drops, props, stanchions, wine

barrels, photo booths, table & chairs,

portable bars and much more.

We are also excited to offer our new

boutique dress hire range with stylish

dresses, catering for small to plus

sizes. Along with stunning facinators

for your special occasions.

Division over community centre

Hororata was badly

affected by the

September 4, 2010,

earthquake and a

community group

is trying to revitalise

the township, but not

everyone agrees a new

community centre is

the right way forward.

Devon Bolger reports

DISTRICT COUNCIL staff

are recommending a review

be undertaken on the cost

to upgrade the Hororata

Hall following feedback on a

proposal for a new $4.6 million

community centre.

Group manager Douglas

Marshall said they have reviewed

the responses from public meetings

held in Hororata in July as

well as a number of comments

received as part of consultation

on the Hororata Reserve Master

Plan.

“These comments indicated

continued support among the

community for the proposed

new community centre, but also

asked the council to take into

account retaining the existing

community hall due to its lower

upgrade cost.”

Marshall said all plans for the

facility will be reviewed and consulted

on as part of the 2021-2031

Long-Term Plan.

The plans for the community

centre appears to be dividing the

township.

On one side of the fence are

those who think the proposed

$4.6 million facility will be

under-used and a financial

burden on the 1000 or so people

who live in the Hororata area.

On the other side are those

who say the community centre

will help revitalise the area and

attract people.

Hororata suffered badly in the

September 4, 2010, earthquake.

Its well-known pub, a favourite

stopover for skiers on the way

to Mt Hutt was destroyed, the

historic church went and the

area slumped.

Some people liked it that way;

others saw the need to get the

area back on its feet.

The Hororata Community

Trust was set up in 2011 and has

had outstanding success with

the annual Highland Games,

attracting a crowd of 10,000, and

more recently the Night Glow

hot ballooning – which draws in

14,000.

They have become an integral

part of Hororata, self-funding

and not a drain on the community.

But many are worried the

$4.6 million community centre

will.

Go Hororata is behind the plan

for the community centre.

The group is made up of representatives

from the Hororata

Reserve Committee, citizens

committee, tennis club, Scouts,

rifle club, play centre, Hororata

Primary School, the Hororata

Parish and Hororata Community

Trust and three independent

members elected at a public

meeting.

But the plan for the new facility

is a touchy subject.

Some people mistakenly

think the cost of the community

centre will fall directly on those

who live in the area. But that is

H

Bob Mugford

not the case.

The $4.6 million cost will be

funded by $2 million from the

Hororata Community Trust,

$624,000 reserve development

funds, $576,000 from the district

council and $400,000 from the

sale of the existing hall and

land.

The remaining $1 million will

come from a district council loan

paid back through rates across

the Selwyn district.

A community meeting was

held late last month to discuss

the concerns of residents with

about 60 people in attendance.

A ballot conducted at the

meeting showed attendees are

largely in opposition of the development.

The results were 75.92

per cent in favour of

upgrading the existing

hall and 24.08 per cent

in favour of the new

community centre.

The current hall needs

modernising but is not

expected to need any

seismic strengthening if

it is to be retained.

Malvern Ward councillor Bob

Mugford said he is not convinced

the results of the ballot accurately

represent the views of the

community.

“Honestly, I don’t know, it

depends on who turns up on the

night. There are more people opposed

to it than I thought there

would be.

“We had several earlier

meetings and I honestly

thought the whole

community wanted this

development.”

The district council

has not yet started formal

consultation on the

plans for the community

centre.

A possible site for

the facility was merely included

in the draft development plans

for the Hororata Domain so

DEVELOP:

The Hororata

Domain Master

Plan with the

proposed

location of a

new community

centre which

is marked

as H. Many

residents say it

is unnecessary

and there are

fears it would

reduce the size

of the race track

(below).

it matches with what is in the

Long-Term Plan.

But getting people to commit

to what they think about the

community centre is tricky.

Go Hororata Chairman Craig

Blackburn refused to answer

questions by the Selwyn Times.

“At this point in time I don’t

want to put anything to press.

That is probably the best way

of putting it. There is a council

process in place and at the time

the results of that survey will

be presented in the appropriate

manner. “

So what are his views on

the feeling of the community?

Blackburn said he would not

comment.

‘A bit of a waste of money’

• From page 9

The start of consultation on the

Hororata Domain draft master

plan seems to have created a

sense of fear and suspicion.

A resident representing 12

people in the Hororata area approached

the Selwyn Times with

concerns over the community

centre.

All wanted to remain anonymous

out of fear over backlash

from people who want the community

centre.

She said the concerns include

wanting the current hall to be

retained and not wanting an “eye

sore” in the domain.

Another concern is the size of

the racetrack would be reduced if

the proposed site is chosen.

During a trip to Hororata to

gauge the feelings of the community,

it became clear the new

community centre is a very

contentious topic.

Resident David was filling his

car up with petrol on the quiet

Wednesday afternoon.

He said he was happy to talk

but only wanted his first name

used as he feared repercussions

for sharing his opinion.

“I want the current hall

upgraded. It [new community

centre] is too expensive for the

people here. There are only about

300 residents in Hororata. Why

would you spend that money on a

hall that won’t be used?

“It is better to be used on fixing

the flooding out here or the hall

we’ve got. You could spend maybe

$1 million to upgrade the hall.”

Not everybody in the township

is echoing opposition to the

development.

Phillipp and Loma Booker

A resident said they think the

proposal for the new community

centre is a good idea.

They asked to remain completely

anonymous as they have

only lived in the township for

a short time and said it felt like

they were one of the only people

in favour of the project.

“It could bring more people

and they have planned it to accommodate

offices and open

spaces for hundreds of people.

“I have only lived here a short

time and didn’t even know

we had a hall. It is a short

term investment for a long

term gain.”

Nicky answered her

door with a suspicious

look but when asked about

her view on the community

centre she did not

hesitate to share.

“I don’t think that we

need a great big hall for the size

of the community. Who would

use it? There are lots of other issues

out here to be fixed.

“It’s a huge amount of money

and it would leave the race track

smaller. We moved here because

of the wide-open spaces. I would

definitely like to see our hall

upgraded.’

When asked for her name and

if a photo could be taken, Nicky

recoiled providing only her first

name and refusing the photo.

A number of residents spoken

to by the Selwyn Times were on

the fence about the proposal.

Charlie Fenwick was walking

to his car when asked about his

opinion.

He said he was unsure how he

felt about the project.

Charlie

Fenwick

“It does sound like a lot of

money to spend. It is a hard one,

it all depends. You would be

lucky to see one person around

here on a Friday night.

“I mean a new community

centre could be

a good thing but also

a bit of a waste of

money.”

Loma and Phillipp

Booker were out celebrating

Mr Booker’s

birthday with lunch at

the Hororata Village Bar

and Cafe,

They both said they were on

the fence about what they would

like to see happen.

“The current hall has been

there for a long time. I haven’t

used it or had a need for it since

about 30 years ago. The last time

we were in the reserve was for the

highland games.

“I know you need to upgrade

these things but I think you

should compare the populations

and how each facility is used and

consider it from there,” said Mrs

Booker.

Following the visit to Hororata,

Selwyn Times received a call

from the resident representing

the group of 12 who said more

damage than good had been done

by the visit to the township.

Advertorial

neighboring building now gives the

business an open-space reception area,

ample customer parking and an efficient

collision repair area, a spacious and

well-equipped vehicle assembly and

refinishing area, as well as a car valet

area and ample safe storage for cars

waiting for repairs.

Top award for local collision repair business

Perfect Auto Body in Main South

Road in Sockburn recently won the

Overall Best Business award from the

Collision Repair Association affirming the

Christchurch-based business as one of

New Zealand’s leading vehicle collision

repair specialists.

When presenting the top annual award

from the association the judges said that

that Perfect Auto Body is an extremely

well presented, well oiled, and a highly

efficient and productive collision repair

facility that scored highly in almost every

award category.

Perfect Auto Body last won the coveted

Overall Best Business award back in

2009. Since then, managing director

Wayne Houghton has acquired two

additional directors and they have

continued to grow and expand the

business with a focus on work quality

and efficiencies and providing an

exceptional customer service.

Garry Williams, a panel beater by

trade, looks after the collision

repair side of the business and

Paul Choat, with his experience

as a vehicle painter, looks

after the refinishing – helping

to create a market-leading

collision repair facility.

Recent expansion into the

Perfect Auto Body is a full-service

collision repair facility that handles all

aspects of the repair in-house and they

are a recommended repairer for most

of the major insurance companies,

including holding status as an ‘IAG

Gold Repairer’.

“Our staff are I-CAR trained and

understand the most up-to-date

repair methods and technology and

our commitment to quality ensures

your car is returned to you in preaccident

condition,” says Wayne.

Rolleston pupil bowls

the opposition over

Rolleston School pupil Millie (middle) won the Canterbury Boccia

Championship tournament last week. Three pupils from the school took

part in the tournament at the Bishopdale YMCA. The other pupils are

Lochlan (left), who was fifth, and Emma (right), fourth. Boccia is a game

adapted from bowls and petanque. ​

Planting for a greener future

West Melton School pupils, including Sarah and Millie (above), got

out their shovels to plant native trees at Kowhai Sanctuary. The event

was held as part of the Kids Discovery Plantout programme. They

planted Totara, Tī Kōuka and Kanuka trees. They also engaged in insect

monitoring and were challenged to create something out of the natural

resources that resembled the Māori legend Rūaumoko. ​

Electoral

process

review

under way

• By Devon Bolger

THE FIRST meeting to begin

the review of the district

council’s electoral process ahead

of the next local body election

was held last week.

The next district council

election will take place in 2022.

All councils must undertake a

review every six years.

“The purpose of the meeting

is for subcommittee members

to gain further understanding

of the process that council is

statutorily bound to follow in a

representation review process,”

chief executive David Ward said

in a report.

A meeting schedule for the

subcommittee going forward

will now be prepared.

The aim of the review is to

consider matters such as the

electoral system and whether to

use first past the post or single

transferable vote and effective

representation of all people in

the district.

A potential change in the

electoral system could be made

under the review.

Treatment plant upgrades

will improve water quality

FOUR WATER treatment

plants have been upgraded

as part of a wider project to

improve the district’s water

systems.

Upgrades have been completed

on treatment plants at Rakaia

Huts, Tai Tapu, Claremont,

Veuve Drive in Lincoln and

Gallipoli St in Leeston adding

treatment options such as ultra

violet light.

UV treatment is an effective

method of disinfecting bacteria

and is widely used around the

world.

The UV rays attack the

genetic code of harmful

pathogens rendering them

unable to reproduce.

As well as improving water

quality, the plants will also

provide additional storage as the

district’s population grows.

The work is part of a $23 million

district-wide programme of

59 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

at Arthur’s Pass, Castle Hill,

Dalethorpe, Springston, West

Melton and Te Pirita.

QUALITY: An

upgrade to

the Rakaia

Huts water

treatment

plant has been

completed.

A further seven upgrades are

planned over the next two years

global species.

This freshwater snail is

a 6-10mm long sinistral

species, meaning the

aperture (opening) is on

the left-hand side when the

spire is pointing up and

the aperture is facing the

The snails have four to

five whorls in the shell

and vary in colour from

light honey to brown with

shell.

Unlike many other

Physella acuta does not

have an operculum, the

for defence. Instead it

flicks its shell rapidly

back and forth to avoid

predation.

The species has a wide

ADVERTORIAL

Free Lincoln diplomas meet

food and fibre employment needs

A raft of food and

fibre industry focused

diplomas are now free

at Lincoln University,

helping meet growing

employment demands

in the thriving sector.

Lincoln is the only New Zealand

university included in the

Government’s Targeted Training

and Apprenticeship Fund, which is

covering course costs for six diploma

programmes from July 2020 until

December 2022

Diplomas in Horticulture, Agriculture,

Farm Management, Organic Agri-Food

Production, Horticultural Business,

and Horticultural Management are all

included in the scheme announced to

support domestic students into jobs

in the food and fibre sector.

Lincoln University Acting Vice-

Chancellor, Professor Bruce McKenzie,

was thrilled about being included in

the scheme.

“There are urgent industry demands

for skilled workers in areas such as

agriculture and horticulture, and

these practical-based courses will

assist with that, producing graduates

who have the skills to hit the ground

running and help drive the New

Zealand economy.”

“It’s very encouraging to know the

Government values our contribution

to the sector.”

Rob Hewett, Lincoln University

Council member and co-chair of

Silver Fern Farms Limited, said the

free diplomas allowed people who

may not have seriously considered

working in the sector to “dip a toe in

the water without as big a financial

cost of doing so”.

“It is attractive to many, and the

sector is crying out for the right sort

of staff. Free diplomas are attractive,

and likely to attract larger numbers

of prospective students and

ultimately, employees.

“The future is really bright for people

in this sector. It is New Zealand’s

leading economic light and needs

to be considered as such in terms of

employment opportunity.”

The funding is separate from the

Government’s Fees Free scheme,

which students are still able to access

at the end of their programme.

No previous tertiary study experience

is necessary and the courses enhance

employability by teaching specific

skills for the industry.

Alongside offering qualifications

designed to meet the future

employment requirements of the

food and fibre sector, Lincoln

has also taken the move to help

with the immediate needs of the

industry by modifying its rules

around compulsory practical work

requirements in courses to include

rural contracting.

Rural contractor work could include

hay baling and silage baling, as

well as spraying, muck spreading,

shearing, ploughing and other tractor

operation and bulk supplementary

feed production.

Professor McKenzie said Lincoln was

strongly connected to the sector, and

“There are urgent

industry demands for

skilled workers in areas

such as agriculture and

horticulture, and these

practical-based courses

will assist with that,

producing graduates

who have the skills to

hit the ground running

and help drive the

New Zealand economy.”

the change followed a discussion with

Agriculture Minister Damien O’Connor

about how to meet industry demand

for skilled employees.

“We are happy to be able to do

something practical which will assist,

while also giving our students wider

experience. We are being innovative

in our course offerings to meet the

future and current needs of the food

and fibre sector.”

Lincoln is ranked in the world’s top

100 universities in agriculture, and

is already waiving tuition fees for a

number of postgraduate courses to

lead skilled people into rewarding

careers in the sector, essential to

generating export income after the

impact of Covid-19 on the economy.

Lincoln University graduates

completing diplomas, certificates

and degrees represent about 10% of

the ‘replacement rate’ (assuming 2.5%

annual turnover) in the primary

sector workforce.

Visit www.lincoln.ac.nz

for more information on the

variety of course options and

why graduates are 14% more

likely to be employed in the

thriving food and fibre sectors.

A dancing dream

comes true

Assistant librarian and former teacher Jade Bell with her ex-students Bradley Ward, Matt Bool and Noah Yates and one of their

dancing sculptures in Brookside Park

The dreams of a class of children at Rolleston School to make their community beautiful is coming

true through a huge community effort.

Three statues of dancing children have been installed at Rolleston’s Brookside Park – the first of

21 statues to be installed around Rolleston as an eight-year dream is realised.

It all started in 2012 with an art project by a group of Year 2 students at Rolleston School, then

teacher and now Selwyn Community Library Assistant Jade Bell says.

“We used the idea of dancing in a circle, to explore observational drawing skills, the students then

used their drawings to design and create sculptures of dancing figures made out of wire. While

working through this process the students decided that they wanted to do something to bring

some beauty to their community. At that stage, what they were seeing was a lot of building sites.”

After eight years hard work a huge community effort has finally seen the statues in place.

The Rolleston Men’s Shed came on board, offering to build the statues for free. Businesses

around the town have sponsored the materials for each statue, and the combined efforts of

landscapers Morgan and Pollard and engineering firm Lumen will see the sculptures professionally

installed at no cost.

Jade has also worked with the Council and the local Reserve Committee, which is providing

locations for the sculptures.

“Initially the plan was to have a circle, but we’ve got 21 statues each representing one of the

children, so we’ve identified a series of sites. The plan is, eventually we will create a trail for them

and people will be able to visit them using the Township Trails Selwyn App.”

Bradley Ward, who designed the red sculpture installed at Brookside Park this week, says he

felt very proud of the sculpture and that something he made was going to be in the park near his

house for many years.

The experience was made more memorable by seeing his sculpture with two made by his

friends, Noah and Matt. He is looking forward to seeing the sculptures everyday on his way to

and from school.

Join a world of food, dance and games

Food, dance and games from Aotearoa to Scotland and everywhere in between will be a part of this

year’s CultureFest.

Expressions of interest to be a part of the popular annual festival in Lincoln on Sunday 18 October,

close this Friday 28 August—with food, games and dance already in the planning.

People will have an opportunity to try out traditional Māori games and learn belly dancing, while the

team behind the Hororātā Highland Games says it will be ‘bringing the Scottishness’.

Highland Games Event Manager Cindy Driscoll says this will be the third year that volunteers from the

games will take part in CultureFest and they’re excited to be

involved.

In the past they have brought a tugging rig, taught highland

dance and helped people trace their Scottish lineage, she says.

The team is planning a hands-on set of activities that people

can get involved in that could range from games, to dance

depending on the volunteers available, she says.

“It’s a really fun festival. It’s really cool to see all the cultures

showcased from across the world. Selwyn has a lot of multicultural

aspects and people and it’s good to see that all in

one place.”

Any individual, club or group interested in performing on stage

or being a stallholder at CultureFest, or running a workshop,

during the week of 18-24 October can find a form at

selwyn.govt.nz/culturefest.

Expressions of interest close on Friday 28 August at 5pm.

Economy remains strong

despite COVID

The district’s economy is showing positive signs despite the

impacts of the COVID-19 global pandemic.

New figures from analysts Infometrics show Selwyn was one of only

11 districts where gross domestic product (GDP) grew over the past

year, up 1.3% over the year to June 2020. Across Canterbury GDP

fell by 2.3% and by 2.1% nationally. Consumer spending was also

up by 3%.

House sales rose by 8% and house prices by 2%, backing the

record number of building consent applications the Council has

received since the Level 4 lockdown. Infometrics data shows

residential building consents issued increased by 45.2% during the

year, compared with the same period a year ago. The number of

consents increased nationally by 8.1% over the same period.

Tourism spending was down by 7.6%, though the drop was

significantly less than the 12% fall across Canterbury and nationally.

The figures show the impacts of the Level 4 Lockdown, as GDP

declined by 11% in the district during April, May and June and

consumer spending fell by 9.7%.

The number of people receiving Jobseeker support rose over the

year by 41.9% with 860 people receiving the Jobseeker Support

and 124 people receiving COVID Income Relief Payment in the

district. This was up from 421 people receiving Jobseeker Support

in June 2019.

However, the unemployment rate in Selwyn remained unchanged

from the same time last year, at 2.3%, and almost half the national

unemployment rate of 4.1%.

Mayor Sam Broughton says the figures give some comfort, but the

full impacts of the pandemic show the need for caution.

Selwyn is well placed, based on our strong community and

diversified economy and the figures back that up. However they

also show signs that many of our households and businesses are

hard-pressed and we face challenging times ahead. Our Council is

continuing to support local New Zealand businesses, and we will all

need to keep supporting each other as things continue to change

over the coming months.”

Selwyn libraries supporting

mask making

With people encouraged to wear masks at COVID-19 Alert Level 2,

the Selwyn Libraries are helping out.

Each of the four libraries has a sewing machine, which is being

made available for people to make their own masks. The libraries

are supplying patterns and thread at each library for people who

bring their own fabric to make a mask. Patterns are available at

each library and through the libraries’ Facebook page for people

with their own machines to make masks at home.

Picking up mask patterns has proved very popular with library

users, District Arts Culture and Life-long Learning Coordinator Mat

Logan says.

The libraries are always on the lookout for ways to support the

community and help people build skills. Past sewing and craft

initiatives at the libraries have proved very popular and masks filled

an immediate need, he says.

“With the advice for people to wear facemasks we can provide

the opportunity to people and the plans to make them quickly and

cheaply at home.”

It also gives people the chance to help others by making masks for

whanau and friends, Mat says.

Anyone wanting a mask pattern can collect one from the libraries or

visit Facebook.com/SelwynLibraries to find a download link.

Racing identity leaves enviable legacy

CANTERBURY’S racing

industry has lost one of its

long-time servants, trainer Tony

Prendergast.

The popular 84-year-old

trainer died after a short illness

on August 16.

Prendergast, who trained in

partnership with his wife, Lyn,

from their West Melton property,

had been suffering from

cancer after being diagnosed a

few months ago. His death came

after a shattering week for the

family – with their home being

gutted by fire and with it the loss

of all their possessions, including

all their prized racing trophies

and photographs.

Kylie Williams, who completed

her apprenticeship with

the Prendergast stable and had

remained a life-long friend and

helping hand, had hoped to

provide a ray of sunshine last

Saturday for the family with a

win in the final event aboard

the Prendergast-trained Queen

Jetsun.

It was on Queen Jetsun last

September that Williams celebrated

a career highlight with

her 700 th career win, but last

weekend the mare had to settle

for second, the same placing

registered in the first race by

stablemate Volvik.

“It would have been good to

get that last winner for Pop,”

Williams said.

“He (Prendergast) was like a

father to me and I always called

him Pop. The best pop a girl

could ask for.

“I signed up with Pop and Lyn

when I was 17 and he taught me

so much. I’ll never forget some

of the pranks he pulled and

his laughter when you got him

back. He was one of racing’s true

gentlemen.”

Prendergast was a selfconfessed

battler who became a

well-known and popular figure

around the South Island racetracks.

It would be common to see

him give someone a flick with

his race book or a friendly punch

on the arm as he walked by, his

cheeky way of acknowledgement.

And there was hardly a more

popular occasion on course than

when his stable got a winner. The

delight on Prendergast’s face told

it all, he was loving what he was

doing and not about to stop.

Prendergast chipped in working

alongside Lyn right up until

his illness took over in recent

months, belying his age as he

continued to play his role in a

career in racing which stems

back to his youthful days as an

amateur rider.

The final win for the Prendergast

stable came last December

in the Timaru Cup with stable

star Who Dares Wins, who

finished fourth in last Saturday’s

Winter Cup at Riccarton.

In April last year Who Dares

Wins provided the Prendergasts

with a notable double, in the

Easter Cup and Canterbury Gold

Cup a week apart, then completed

a hat-trick at Riccarton.

Prendergast put paid to any

thoughts of his retirement in a

Love Racing interview after that

double.

“I’ve got no plans to stop. We

will keep going while we can. I

can still jump in the [harness]

cart and jog a horse for 40 minutes.

That keeps you fit.

“Training has never been an

easy game, and the overheads

now have made it harder, though

we are fortunate that we own

our own property and have good

facilities.

“You always have your lean

patches, then you win a couple,

and away you go again.

“We have never trained a big

team. We have usually had 12-15

horses in work, never more than

20, and every time we have a big

win, we really savour it.”

“I’ll never forget some of

the pranks he pulled and

his laughter when you got

him back. He was one of

racing’s true gentlemen.”

– Kylie Williams

From a family of six boys,

Prendergast was brought up in

Central Otago, and has been involved

with horses all his life. His

father raced standardbreds and

a brother, Dick, had considerable

success as a harness trainer.

After working on farms when

leaving school then becoming an

amateur rider, Prendergast took

LONG CAREER: Tony Prendergast lost a

battle with cancer on August 16. He died

a week after his home was gutted by fire.

out an owner-trainer’s licence

and made a remarkable debut

in the 1964-65 season when

preparing Rutanui, a nine-yearold

maiden, to win fresh-up at

Cromwell over 1700m at odds of

67/1. He then backed Rutanui up

two days later for another win,

over 2000m.

Rutanui was ridden in the

maiden victory by Prendergast’s

life-time friend, Brian Anderton,

who still remembers the occasion

clearly.

“We tried him out and he was

one-paced and not much good.

Tony got him sorted out and decided

to race him. He had a real

knack with horses,” Anderton

said.

Prendergast got the former

slowcoach Rutanui into winning

trim through farm work,

including cattle mustering, on

the East Otago farm he was then

managing.

“That also convinced me

that horses don’t need to do a

lot of galloping and I’ve never

been a great one for galloping,”

Prendergast said last year when

recapping his early days.

Prendergast worked as foreman

for Anderton’s astute father,

renowned Wingatui trainer

Hec Anderton, who had more

winners in the 1950s than any

other New Zealand trainer and

won three New Zealand trainers’

premierships.

“I spent about four years with

Hector and learnt a hell of a lot

from him,” Prendergast recalled.

Prendergast recorded his first

win as a professional trainer with

Isalei, at Omakau in 1971 and

boosted his income in those early

days working night shift at the

Mosgiel Woollen Mills.

An early star for Prendergast

was Lomond Queen, who became

the dam of Queen’s Pal, one of the

best horses for the stable. Queen’s

Pal won 14 races. Eleven of her

wins were in black-type races,

including a third in the Group 1

New Zealand 1000 Guineas.

St James was another stable

star, winning 11 races, including

five stakes races, and he gave

Prendergast a big thrill when

finishing third in the 1989 Hong

Kong Cup.

However, Prendergast rated Mr

Ay Bee, whom he part-owned, as

the best horse he trained “by a

country mile.”

In spite of being hampered by

injuries, Mr Ay Bee won 19 races

from 1225m to 2500m and took

six consecutive races as a fiveyear-old,

including a fresh-up

win over 1225m at Beaumont,

when ridden by Lyn Prendergast.

In a bid to reduce travelling

from Wingatui, Mr Ay Bee was

transferred to Takanini trainer

Ray Verner in 1979 after his

Brisbane campaign, in which he

finished second in the Group 1

Brisbane Cup (3200m), and for

Verner he won the 1979 Group

1 Avondale Cup (2200m) then

the Listed King’s Plate (1600m)

before breaking down in preparation

for the Group 1 Auckland

Cup (3200m).

Prendergast trained the

winners of 386 races and he

was proud of his record with

apprentices, including Williams,

Jan Cameron and Charlie

Brough, while his daughter Kerry,

also rode winners during a brief

career as an apprentice and has

had some success as a trainer.

Exciting franchise

opportunity for dog

lovers in Selwyn

Jim’s Dogwash groomers are passionate animal-lovers

who have been trained by some of New Zealand’s

best dog grooming instructors to become part of Jim’s

extended family.

Jim’s Dogwash trailers are specially designed mobile

themselves with integrity, providing empathic care

and lots of cuddles; leaving your best friend looking

gorgeous and smelling delicious.

Jim’s Dog Wash has become increasingly popular and

growth of the business is due to popularity of the

service they offer dogs and their owners.

The fact that they come to you is a key to the success

of the business as it takes the pressure off droppingoff

more relaxed in their own environment. It also gives

the pet and their owners, getting to know them on a

more personal level.

Being a franchisee opens a world of opportunities

with an extensive network of support at your fingertips,

sharing knowledge both as groomers and business

owners. “We now need more Franchisees on the road,”

said Jill Smolenski, Regional Franchisor for Jim’s Dog

Wash in the South Island. “We are all so busy at the

moment. We currently have two groomers in Selwyn

and we can’t keep up with the inquiries.”

The purchase of a franchise includes, one-on-one

grooming training with a master groomer, business

training, uniforms, grooming kit and shampoos,

business stationary, a territory of 4000 households,

insurance and more. Owning your own business allows

you to be your own boss, set your own hours and do

something that you love.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

SELWYN TIMES

Use daylight to boost your time outside

DAYLIGHT HOURS are on the

increase and there is more time to

devote to the garden.

For gardens with poor

drainage, soils are as wet as

they’ll ever be, and wet cold soils

are not very inviting for new

plants.

However, for re-vegetation

planting (where plants will be left

to survive on their own eg: trees,

shrubs etc), this is the last month

for safe planting.

Citrus fruit trees should be

cropping heavily this month.

Keep feeding them throughout

the growing period with a good

quality citrus fertiliser.

Remember citrus trees are frost

tender, so position any new trees

carefully when planting and take

protective measures when frosts

are occurring.

For stone/pip fruit trees, now

is an excellent time to do the

last preventative fungal spray of

copper oxychloride. It must be

applied before bud burst as buds

will be swelling on these trees in

late August.

Continue to harvest your

winter crops in the vege garden.

seeds of beans, cucumber,

lettuce, pumpkins, peppers and

tomatoes indoors. Prepare soil

for the planting of early variety

potatoes to be ready in time for

Christmas.

Winter flowering annuals such

as cinerarias, pansies, primulas

and violas will be at their very

best. Summer annuals are better

to be planted in September as

daylight hours increase and soil

temperatures rise.

Bulbs should be in bloom soon

– depending on the weather of

course.

Daffodils, hyacinths, muscari,

jonquil and lachenalias all

produce beautiful displays of

colour at this time of year. Take

note and mark the best flowering

varieties in your garden as you

may wish to lift and divide them

later in the season.

With roses, in many areas

new growth should have

commenced. Usually, new

growth is ‘clean’ and not infected

with the typical diseases that

attack roses.

Inspect your rose bushes

regularly for early signs of any

problems. It is still a little too

early to apply fertiliser, so leave

that until next month. However,

you can apply fresh compost

around the base of the rose

bushes.

For some, moss may well

be appearing in parts of the

lawn that are either shaded or

particularly wet. These areas may

require over-sowing in spring.

The moss will slowly disappear

as soil temperatures rise and

the soil drains in the summer

months.

Protect your plants from the weather

IT’S TIME for gardeners to

celebrate.

Temperatures are on the

rise, producing signs of spring

throughout the garden.

September can be a wet and

windy month so ensure you still

protect plants where need be. It’s

a busy but very enjoyable time,

with colour and scents slowly

coming back into the garden.

Final harvesting and removal of

winter maturing vegetables gives

plenty of material for the compost

bin. By staggering planting times,

hopefully these vegetables have

supplied you with continuous

supplies over winter.

Where conditions allow, ie soil

not too wet and temperatures rising

in your area, you can plant the

hardier vegetables for summer

harvesting. Remember the more

traditional summer vegetables

will be planted in October.

Those veges can include

asparagus, beetroot, cabbage,

cauliflower, carrots, onion, radish,

silverbeet and spinach. Improve

existing vege plots with plenty

of compost before planting the

new seasons vegetables. Keep a

wary eye for slugs and snails as

they emerge when temperatures

increase.

Time for preparing your summer

flowering garden. Winter annuals

are now coming to an end

of their flowering. While it’s still a

little early for planting traditional

summer annuals, there are some

ing seasons and are very useful at

this time of year.

These include alyssum, calendulas,

cornflower, lobelia, pansies

and violas. If you wish to grow

your own summer flowering

annuals, seed should be sown

now either in a glasshouse or in

a warm, north facing enclosed

patio.

Sow and water regularly to ensure

even germination. Seedlings

should be ready for transplanting

into the garden six to eight weeks

after sowing.

Carefully mark the position of

your winter and spring flowering

bulbs as you may wish to grow

other plants in the same area over

summer months.

Where the bulbs have performed

well, allow them to

naturalise where they are growing.

This applies especially to

crocus, freesias, hyacinths, iris,

lachenalias, muscari, narcissus,

and watsonias.

Stone fruit such as apricots,

cherries, nectarines, peaches and

plums are all in bloom now, as are

pip fruit such as apples and pears.

Hopefully, weather conditions

allow for pollination by bees. Last

year’s heavy rainfall had a major

impact on pollination.

Rose growth is finally under

way. Spring/early summer is the

best time for roses with masses of

blooms and plants usually disease

free. The addition of compost

around the base of existing plants

is beneficial for plant health.

Start feeding roses from October

onwards with fertiliser.

Cut lawns regularly in early

spring, avoiding close mowing

initially. First lawn fertiliser can

be applied in late September/early

October.

Hurunui Garden Festival

29th October

to

1st November

A bounty of gardens to admire and inspire, will

be on show in the Hurunui district this Spring.

The Hurunui Garden Festival has 17 gardens

on offer, two self-driven tours off the beaten

track and garden-based events to educate and

entertain.

It runs from Thursday, October 29 to Sunday,

November 1. Visitors wanting to attend have

until September 6 to take advantage of early

bird specials.

Launched in 2018 by a group of keen local

garden owners to help the Hurunui district

recover from the impact of the devastating

earthquake of November 2016, the festival

has become a popular event. Many visitors

make it a long weekend so they can enjoy the

many attractions the district has on offer.

Hurunui Garden Festival Incorporated (HGF), is

committed to investing back in its community.

The committee will give a student, graduating

from a Hurunui secondary school, a scholarship

to the value of $2000 towards study in

horticulture at their choice of University or

Institute of Technology, on the occasion of

HGF making a reasonable profit.

Seventeen gardens, five of them new to

the event, feature on this year’s festival

programme. They are in six clusters and

garden owners will be ready to greet you and

share their stories of how they have created

their gardens.

A new tour, Mysteries of the Waipara Gorge,

complete with iron sculptures, concretions

and moa bones, has been introduced, while

the Hidden Gems from the Lowry Hills to the

Sea, makes its return.

If you would you like to donate to the Hurunui

Garden Festival scholarship fund you can do

via a transfer to our bank account listed below

- Account name: Hurunui Garden Festival

Incorporated.

Account number: 02-1278-0028459-00.

Bank name: BNZ.

Entry is $10 per garden, children under 18 free.

Tickets for the tours are $95 per person and

includes morning tea, lunch and afternoon

tea.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

SELWYN TIMES

Cruising on a Honda Goldwing

When Robert Gravener lost his Harley-

Davidson in a crash, he vowed he would

not own another motor-cycle, then he saw

his 1991 Honda GL 1500 Goldwing for sale

in Belgrave (just out of Melbourne).

“The bike’s maintenance hadn’t been

kept up so it wasn’t in great condition,” says

Robert.

Robert says the Honda Goldwing is

a general all round cruiser. It has cruise

control, a radio, an intercom system,

cigarette lighters and a tow bar.

“You can sit at 100km/h and it glides

along,” explains Robert.

Honda’s Goldwing series was introduced

in 1974, becoming a popular touring

motor-cycle in North America, Western

Europe, Australia and Japan, with the most

sales in the United States.

1991 Goldwings all had a numbered

plaque and anniversary edition insignia,

marking 10 years’ US production; they

were manufactured in Marysville, Ohio,

from 1980 until 2010, then produced in

Japan from 2011. In 1991, there were three

models, the: Aspencade (regular GL1500

model), Special Edition (luxurious model),

and Interstate (stripped-down model).

Robert’s fourth generation Goldwing has

a shaft drive and flat six-cylinder engine.

It has 159,000km on the odometer, which

Robert says is reasonable for a touring bike.

He says it is not uncommon for Honda

Goldwings to have done 300,000km and

still run well.

After Rob purchased his Goldwing,

he took an extended holiday. With his

trailer on the back, he rode up to Cairns,

camping along the way. He enjoyed the

trip so much, he decided to buy a 4WD in

the Atherton Tablelands so he could travel

round Australia with his caravan.

These plans were cut short due to the

rainy season, forest fires and meeting New

Zealander, Kerry who was holidaying north

of Cairns.

“We started chatting in a coffee shop then

the next day, met up again,” explains Kerry.

Romance was in the air so Robert

cancelled his plans for touring Australia

and headed to New Zealand for a holiday

instead. One year later, he and Kerry were

engaged and Rob shifted to New Zealand,

bringing his Honda 1500cc Goldwing with

him.

Rob has now owned his Honda

Goldwing for seven years. He says it is a

bike for those who enjoy long trips and all

weather riding.

“I spent more than eight hours a day on

the bike when travelling from Melbourne

to Cairns and even towing a trailer, it did

the trip effortlessly. The air shockers mean

you don’t feel the road, it just glides.”

Robert has yet to explore New Zealand.

He has joined the Honda Goldwing Riders’

club. He and Kerry also hope to take the

bike camping over summer, with long-term

plans to travel around the North and South

Islands.

“When I can’t ride the Goldwing

anymore, I might give it to a family

member though it would mean sending the

bike back to Australia.”

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

Putting tyres on your wheels

While this year may not have been the best time to open a business,

there has been considerable local support for one of Rolleston’s newest.

“We’ve been really busy, before and after Covid lockdown,” says Phil

Glen, owner of Kats Tyres, Rolleston.

Phil has lived in Rolleston for 19 years. He has watched the town

grow and always had the dream of opening a second branch of Kats

Tyres there.

A recognised name for over 35 years in Kaiapoi, Kats Tyres

Rolleston opened on the 1st March, this year.

“We’d always talked about locating in Rolleston but struggled to

find the right piece of land. The timing was right when we found the

Hoskyns Road site,” explains Phil.

Kats Tyres supply tyres for all makes and model of vehicle. They also

sell Mag wheels, complete wheel alignments, and sell and install lifting

and lowering kits. In addition, they have an experienced mechanic on

site to take care of vehicle servicing, mechanical repairs and WOFs

needs. The latter is by appointment so you do not have to wait.

Phil has a long history of working with tyres and specialising in

wheel alignments and chassis straightening. If you are unsure about

the best tyres for your vehicle, Phil and his team are happy to advise

you.

Kats Tyres supply all brands of tyre and have a massive 400 tyres

in stock. They deal with almost every tyre imaginable, from top of

the line brands like Michelin, Pirelli, Cooper and Goodyear through

to budget tyres. You are assured, they can supply a tyre to meet your

needs and budget.

If you take your vehicle in for a warrant of fitness and the tyres or

any part of the vehicle is not up to standard, they can fit new tyres

and undertake repairs where needed. This will save you time and the

hassle of having to take your vehicle away to sort any issues for the

completion of the warrant.

When not on the job, you may find Phil at the Rolleston Fire Station

where he has been a member for 17 years. He is currently the local

station officer.

When you next need tyres, a WOF or have a problem with your

vehicle, look for the bright yellow and red colours of Kats Tyres.

They are located at 44 Hoskyns Road on the commercial side of

Rolleston, phone 347 0929. They are open: 8am-5pm, Monday to

Friday; and 8am-12noon, Saturdays.

4 1 2 2 2

Located in the desirable Preston Downs with an easy commute

to the city is this architecturally designed home by Art House

Architects. Assisted by Frobisher interior design with an

emphasis on quality fittings and furnishings the home is a delight

to present to the market.

The striking formal entrance welcomes you into a home that

accommodates family and guests with its bedrooms at one wing and

family living the other. Capturing natural sunlight the home offers a

well proportioned open plan kitchen, dining and living space, further

supported by the separate family lounge, office and guest toilet. The

kitchen will impress with its walk-in pantry, engineered stone bench

tops, induction hobs and quality finishings while the living spaces

both enjoy access to the outdoor patio area via stacker doors and are

warmed by a combination of heat pumps while enjoying the ambience

of the log burner.

Family bedrooms are located at a separate wing of the home allowing

the family members privacy, and are all generous sizes with quality

drapes and fittings. The master sits north west facing and basks in

sun with the indulgence of the walk through robe, dressing area and

tiled ensuite bathroom.

Outdoor entertaining transitions seamlessly from the living spaces

and provides a private, sheltered space overlooking the garden area.

Utility areas have been well thought out and accommodate the raised

vege gardens, garden shed and utility area.

Hide the boat/trailer behind the purpose built fence and still enjoy double

car garaging and off street parking for a further three vehicles.

Having loved this property, new plans are on the horizon and it is with

pride the owners present this lovely home to the market for genuine sale.

Marketing your property –

what does it mean?

Marketing a property is more than presentation and advertising.

Conceptually, marketing is identifying

what prospective buyers are looking for

then providing this. For example, larger

homes and sections may appeal more

to families. Young couples starting out,

generally have tight budgets leading

them to smaller properties, while older

people may be looking to downsize.

Brand new has a particular appeal

however there will always be a market for

established homes. Having a picture in

your mind of the type of buyer will help

in determining the features to emphasise.

If repairs and maintenance need to be

carried out before putting the property

on the market, seek the advice of a real

estate agent. They can advise on what

tasks are worth completing and what

might be unnecessary expense.

Installing a new kitchen or changing

the carpet may lift the house but will

the expense be recouped in the sale

price? On the other hand, modernising

an outdated kitchen or bathroom could

make a huge difference to the look of

the place. Avoid going overboard unless

the capital value of properties in the area

justifies this.

Real estate agents are in contact with

prospective buyers so aware of what they

are looking for. Draw on their expertise

and advice to help make the most of the

selling opportunity.

Establishing a relevant and fair price

for a property is important. Most

agents calculate this based on the price

properties in the area have sold for, and

what a particular property has to offer.

A unique or exceptional property may

justify a higher price, though run-down

properties can gain more than they

appear to merit. This might be due to the

area or other factors that suggest a good

investment.

When promoting a property, mix it up

and be creative so your property stands

out from the rest. TradeMe is a must;

checked by most people looking to buy.

Present the features the property offers as

benefits to potential buyers.

Erect a sign outside the property.

People stop and look at photographs and

this might spark sufficient interest for

them to visit an open home. Spending

a fortune on massive advertising

campaigns in every media might seem a

way to attract potential buyers but may

be an unnecessary expense without the

return. A better philosophy could be a

little often. This will depend on the value

of the property, your budget and how

best to reach target buyers.

Buyer perception is also significant.

For example, properties that sit for a

while can become stale. Resting the

property by taking it off the market for

a short time, then relisting perhaps in

spring or when sales in the area appear

to lift a little, can make a difference.

However, if a property does not sell

immediately there is no need for panic or

dropping the price. It may simply be that

the right buyer has not yet come along. If

the mix is right your property will sell.

Kiwi homes contain hidden health

dangers. Yet first aid for unhealthy

homes needn’t cost a fortune. It can

make a home more saleable as well as a

healthier place to live.

Many older homes are cold and damp

and sometimes have other hazards such

as lead-based paint and asbestos.

There are a number of steps to take to

make your home more healthy.

They include behavioural change,

the cheapest way to make your home

healthier is to open windows to

ventilate.

If you’re out a lot, but want to increase

natural ventilation buy some security

window stays or locks that allow you

to leave windows slightly open when

you’re out. This can be a lot cheaper to

buy and run than high-tech systems.

If nothing else, insulate the ceiling

and under the house. The Energy

Efficiency and Conservation Authority

(EECA) has information on its website

about funding grants available through

the Warm Up New Zealand campaign.

A heat pump will warm and ventilate

rooms in the winter and cool them in

the summer.

EECA suggests a number of different

options for secondary glazing, which

is cheaper than retrofitting double

glazing.

Alternatives include DIY window

insulation, aluminium framed

secondary glazing on the inside of

the existing glazing, or acrylic sheets

attached internally.

Healthy homes aren’t just about

insulation and moisture removal.

Using fewer toxic chemicals can make

your home healthier to live in. Parents

of young children sometimes worry

about exposure to chemicals as do

asthma sufferers.

Dust mites can make a home

unhealthy to live in. Use a hepa filter on

your vacuum cleaner or at least vacuum

more often and empty the bag between

cleans.

Decluttering as well reduces the

places that dust can build up.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Effectively siting

your new home

Capitalise on park settings.

Add in off-street parking.

Position outdoor living north/north-west.

The way a house is sited on a section

influences the amount of sun entering

the home and whether there is a warm,

outdoor living area.

For maximum free energy from the sun

(especially in winter) and sunny outdoor

living spaces, the house should be north/

north-west orientated. Direction of

prevailing winds is also valid, especially

when determining distances from

boundary fences. An area not so pleasant

in winter might be a refuge from the hot

north-west winds in summer. Future use

of the outdoor space for entertaining or al

fresco dining might also mean choosing

a spot close to the kitchen. Clever design

can achieve a sheltered sunny living area.

If having an outlook from each room

is important, siting back from boundary

fences will allow a garden to provide a

green outlook. If the section offers a view

over a park or reserve, outdoor living

spaces might capitalise on this, with a

pleasurable setting created while adding

capital value to the home.

Council land zoning determines the

percentage of a section allowed to be built

on, and the distance a building must be

from each boundary. This is determined

by the recession plane; determined by the

house roof height and how this impacts

on the sun received in a neighbouring

property. Garages generally can be built

closer to a fence and the front of the

section.

Ideally, the garage will be sited on

the south/south-east side of the house,

depending on the section’s orientation.

Whether the garage door faces the street

or yard will be influenced by the house

plan and personal preference. Increasing

the size of the driveway provides more offstreet

parking though costs more.

Remember too, that a house with

street appeal can be easier to sell. Large

windows, variation in cladding and

landscaping can all add to its appeal.

It is wise to gain the developer’s approval

before applying for building consent

and construction begins as sub-division

covenants must also be observed. These

address house size permissible given a

section’s size, the home’s architectural

elements, driveway accessibility, front

of section landscaping, and caravan/

motorhome parking. The latter is usually

not permitted to be on view from the

street, leading to the need to allocate

parking for such, behind an internal fence.

When choosing a section, as well as

determining the size of home to be built

on it, consider the amount of outdoor

living space you want as well as what you

need space for on your land. Work with

your designer and builder. Walk round

your section with them, and discuss how

the house design you want could best be

positioned.

Infiltrating every arena of our lives, technology

aims to make our lives better. Greater efficiency,

economy, comfort, and safety are cornerstones

of the technological advancements that are

constantly being imagined and developed to

make our homes a haven from, and connected to,

the outside world.

Biometric fingerprint security systems, key

cards, and voice-activated lighting were once

only seen on the seemingly fantastical movies

of 20 years ago. Today, however, they have all

come to fruition on the home front, the realm

of possibilities seems limited only by one's

imagination.

Smart home technology has filtered through

all aspects of our lives, which promises greater

comfort, safety, economy, efficiency, and overall

enjoyment of the world in which we live.

Smarter building materials, smarter

architectural design, smarter appliances,

Smarter homes

and smarter software systems that offer fully

integrated multi-sensory platforms are being

envisioned and created faster than we can get our

heads around how to operate them.

So, what is your home missing that could

deliver optimal comfort beyond your wildest

dreams? For those of us who spend long periods

away from home on business, remote-access

security cameras are becoming a popular

commodity.

Cameras placed in and around your home

can be controlled and viewed via a remotely

connected device so no matter where you are in

the world you can have peace of mind that when

you return everything will be just as you left it.

Home security systems can also welcome you

home at the end of every day with intelligent

preset computer modules. On your approach the

garage door opens, the driveway is sufficiently

illuminated and the alarm system is deactivated.

When receiving visitors, automated lighting

Call Andrew on 027 220 6558

www.touchstonehomes.co.nz

can be activated above the door when the buzzer

is pressed and crystal-clear video monitors now

give you the ability to zoom in with touch-screen

controls and developments in sound technology

are able to negate background noise for optimal

audio communication.

Automated lighting is another smart feature

that is becoming more and more commonplace

in households around the world. Easily integrated

into existing homes, most automated lighting

systems are controlled from a central panel or via

a smart mobile device.

LED lights enable you to control colour,

brightness, and efficiency, depending on the

mood and task at hand, while automated controls

can even make adjustments based on changing

conditions like occupancy or daylight availability,

saving money in the long run.

Whatever the future holds, it promises to

change the world as we know it.
