Call for

New

World

to stay

SELWYN TIMES readers don’t

want the New World in Rolleston

rebranded as Pak’N Save.

Last week the Selwyn Times

revealed Foodstuffs, owner of

both brands, had been granted a

resource consent by the district

council to change the name.

Foodstuffs says it is yet to decide

whether to make the change.

But readers have responded

with a flurry of letters – most

against the move.

Said Anne Seyger: “I don’t want

another boring big food barn

in Rolleston. The New World

provides an excellent service with

a variety of special products and

imports, and is run by an amazing

management team.”

She also questioned what might

happen to the New World club

card if brands were changed.

Jenny Daniels said she enjoyed

the product range at New World

and doubted they would be

available at Pak’N Save.

But Anne Farrington said she

would “love to see” New World

converted into a Pak’N Save.

TRAILERS AND Toyotas are

the latest targets for thieves in

the district.

Senior Sergeant Dean Harker

said about 10 trailers have been

stolen over the last few weeks.

They have been taken from

West Melton, Darfield, Rolleston,

Lincoln

and Prebbleton.

“Some have

had the chain

locks cut off

and taken.

Trailers have

been taken

from up people’s

driveways

and also from commercial yards

and from farmers’ paddocks.”

Harker said the offenders are

also stealing Toyota Hiluxes and

Toyota Land Cruisers across

Canterbury. Three were taken

from the district in the last week.

“They were taken from Rolleston

and Prebbleton. These have

been taken from the roadside

and up people’s driveways.

“I would suggest that people

with these makes of vehicles

look at other security measures

other than just locking their

vehicle.”

Harker said he thinks the Hiluxes

are being taken as they are

worth a lot of money, even old

ones, and the parts can be easily

changed around.

In January last year Selwyn

Times reported there had been

an increase in the theft of Toyota

Hiluxes in the district.

At the time, police in Rolleston

said the theft of Hiluxes had

been a constant issue.

MORE THAN a hundred Selwyn

community members have been

recognised for their selfless acts

of kindness and professionalism

during the Covid-19 lockdown.

A special ceremony was held

at the district council chambers

to recognise those who received

awards through the council-organised

Selwyn’s Covid Heroes’

campaign.

The district council teamed

up with Te Taumutu Rūnanga

and the Selwyn Times to launch

the campaign in June, inviting

the public to nominate their

Covid heroes in response to the

overwhelming number of stories

about individuals, companies,

charities and essential service

workers going the extra mile to

help their local communities.

Said Mayor Sam Broughton: “It

was important for us to recognise

the amazing work in our communities.

The people of Selwyn

really had each other’s back. At

the same time we wanted to give

people the chance to say a public

thank you to the person, shop,

school or organisation that made

a difference for them.”

Broughton, Te Taumutu chairperson

Liz Brown, and Selwyn

Times editor Barry Clarke presented

certificates to five notable

nominations.

Each of the hundred nominated

people and organisations will

all receive an identical certificate

by post.

“I wish it would have been

possible to give each and every

person their certificates personally,”

Broughton said.

Rachael Inch, from the Selwyn

Creative Network, who received

her certificate from Broughton

was nominated for her community

service.

“Often when we volunteer

we do it without recognition or

thanks so to be recognised like

this is humbling,” she said.

A MOTORIST has been

seriously injured in another

crash at an intersection in the

district.

Police and fire crews from

Rolleston were called to the

incident at the intersection of

Bethels and Corbetts Rds in

Springston about 11.35am on

Saturday.

Rolleston chief fire officer Cam

Kenyon said the crash involved

a milk tanker

and a car.

He said a

woman was

trapped in the

car and had to

be extricated.

Cam Kenyon

“All I can

see is, the car

must have come out of the road

and got taken on the right hand

corner. That is where the damage

is.”

A St John spokesman said

the woman suffered serious

injuries and was transported to

Christchurch Hospital.

The crash comes after a fatal

three-car crash at a Prebbleton

intersection on August 18.

DANGER: A recent crash at the Ellesmere/Tancreds Rds

intersection highlights the need for drivers to be aware.

PHOTO: BARRY CLARKE

The motorist who died was

90-year-old Zelma Estelle

Waghorn, of Little Akaloa.

The crash happened at the

intersection of Birchs Rd and

Robinsons Rd, at about 3.40pm.

Two others had serious

injuries and all three people

were taken to Christchurch

Hospital.

Senior Sergeant Dean Harker

said the Bethels and Corbetts

Rds intersection is uncontrolled,

meaning there are no signs.

“Obviously someone has still

failed to give way at that intersection

but it is not a situation

of them failing to stop at a stop

sign.”

Harker said there will be an

investigation into exactly what

happened.

Earlier this year, police began

a campaign to make the district’s

intersections safer following two

other fatal crashes at intersections.

About 150 drivers were fined

for failing to stop throughout the

two-month long campaign.

REMEMBERING THE SEPTEMBER 4, 2010 QUAKE

FAST FACTS

• The magnitude 7.1

earthquake was the

largest earthquake to

affect a major urban

area since the 1931

Hawke’s Bay earthquake.

It was a relatively shallow

earthquake – about 10km

below the surface of the

Canterbury Plains. During

the strong shaking, the

ground near the epicentre

moved at up to 1.25 times

the acceleration due to

gravity. The earthquake was

accompanied by a large

surface rupture.

•The quake was the first

in New Zealand in which

social media were used to

share information. GeoNet

earthquake reports were

sent out using both Twitter

and Facebook after each

major aftershock.

• The worst damage was

suffered by older (mainly

pre-1940s) buildings

constructed of brick and

masonry, and lacking

adequate reinforcement.

Some walls crumbled, with

bricks cascading onto the

streets. Brick chimneys

toppled through tile roofs.

A fault rupture occurred

along a previously unknown

fault line, which was

named the Greendale Fault.

Movement along the fault

broke the surface, creating

a fault trace extending for

30km west from Rolleston.

Historic lodge a quake survivor

• By Devon Bolger

ALMOST 10 years ago to the day,

Simonetta Ferrari could have died.

An eight-tonne chimney came

crashing through her ceiling,

smashing on to the bed she was

sleeping in – caused by the 7.1

magnitude quake that devastated

parts of Canterbury.

“It missed me by less than a

metre, hitting the end of the bed.

It was very close,” she recalls.

“Afterwards, I couldn’t get

out of the room, the door was

jammed. Plaster and bricks were

flying around us. I remember

having a mouthful of plaster as I

was trying to get out.”

Ferrari is the owner of the

Gunyah Country Estate, near

Glenroy, and was in bed with her

husband at the time, William

Cottrell.

Cottrell snapped an Achilles

tendon as he was trying to escape

from the bed, and was struck by

a brick.

Said Cottrell: “I had walked past

the front of bed and the chimney

came down behind me, I’d just

about got to the door of the bedroom

and the roof came down.

“I was up to my knees in brick

and then the back of one leg got

smashed.”

Cottrell said if he had not got

out of bed as quickly as he did, he

would have been killed.

“You are in such an adrenaline

type mode to be able to deal with

what’s happening.

“It took a long time and it’s only

looking at the photos months after

that suddenly you think oh gosh

there was a chance I may not have

been here anymore.”

The two-poster antique bed

was completely destroyed by the

weight of the chimney.

All four of the estate’s brick

chimneys collapsed during the

quake.

“I do think about it still now,

I’ll never forget it. It has affected

my life and it is quite hard to talk

about sometimes.”

Ferrari was considerably lucky

compared to a man in his 50s

who suffered serious injuries

when a chimney fell on his taxi in

masonry killed 11 people in

Christchurch.

Ferrari said she can remember

the confusion when the earthquake

first struck.

“I’ve never been in an earthquake

before so I had no idea

that’s what it was. My brain

thought oh there is a lot of noise

and I was being shunted back and

forth on the bed.

“I remember thinking what is

it? It can’t be an earthquake, and

then I thought oh s**t it is an

earthquake.”

Gunyah was partially back up

and running in a few months.

Repairs on the building were

finished two years after the quake.

‘God knows how she got out’

• By Devon Bolger

DAVE FITZJOHN and his

family were almost as close as

you can get to the epicentre of

the earthquake.

Their property in Greendale is

near to Charing Cross where experts

say the quake was centered.

“You feel like you’re on a fast

train that’s gone completely out

of control, the whole house was

rattling,” said

Fitzjohn.

“One thing I

really remember

was I woke

up and said:

‘Earthquake,’

and my wife

Dave Fitzjohn

just turned

to me and

said: ‘Yes.’ It

was one of those stupid married

conversations.”

It was impossible to move at

all, Fitzjohn said, but his wife

April did not realise this and

ended up being thrown into a

cupboard.

It was a wardrobe type cupboard,

she was trying to get to

their teenage daughter Jessie.

“She hardly remembered being

thrown into it but the cupboard

door was completely munted.

“With her shoulder being

black and bruised and the door

MESS: The Fitzjohn’s kitchen floor after the quake caused

their cupboards to empty.

pushed in, it all sort of came

back. I think it was all that

adrenaline at the time.”

Fitzjohn said once it was safe

enough, he moved down to Jessie’s

room.

“She was quite amusing in a

way because when I got to the

room she was shouting am I

supposed to be under the bed or

standing under a doorway?”

To this day, the Fitzjohn’s

cannot figure out how Jessie

managed to find her way out of

her bedroom.

“Her room was completely full

of stuff, she must have climbed

up and over it and somehow

pulled the door open enough

and got down into the passageway.

“That night we could not

actually get her back into her

bedroom. We couldn’t open

the door. God knows how she

got out, it must have just been

adrenaline.”

Once things calmed down, the

family went outside and stood in

the garden.

“As it got lighter we saw more

bits of the house that were

missing. Jessie said hang on the

chimney is not there.

“Then, we had a huge water

tank, it was like oh the water

tank’s gone. It was quite freaky.”

Fitzjohn said they were told

the house had moved between

10-30cm off its foundations.

The family had also just got a

new puppy which was sleeping

in a crate in their study at the

time of the quake.

“The study was completely full

of books that had come down,

draws and all sorts. It probably

took about 15 minutes to extricate

this puppy.

“It’s lucky he was in a crate, I

can’t imagine if he had just been

lying there. It came out wagging

its tail as if it was just a cool game.”

has been measured

between the two sides of

the previously unknown

Greendale fault.

•The quake lasted up to

40sec and occurred as a

result of strike-slip faulting

within the crust of the

Pacific plate.

•Lillian Daniels-Witika of

Christchurch died of a heart

attack suffered during the

quake, although this could

not be directly linked to the

earthquake.

•Two men in their 50s

sustained serious injuries.

One was hit by a falling

chimney while the other

was injured by broken glass.

•Several thousand residents

sustained lesser injuries for

which they sought medical

help.

Love, Learn and Play

the Freckles way!

OPENING OCTOBER 2020

Freckles Early Learning Centre is a brand new purposebuilt,

spacious facility in Rolleston with the best and

latest pedagogical experiences. Freckles is built on a

massive 3500m2 site and is licensed for only 70 children

centre-wide.

When owners Tracy and Gavin Summerfield were approached

by the developer of Falcons Landing, Rolleston to build

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

had observed a number of new centres opening in recent

years but most seemed to be concentrating on larger licences

with smaller sites. So they decided they would do something

different. Freckles has been designed with children in mind,

with spacious indoor and outdoor areas, enabling children to

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

learn about the world around them.

Freckles will operate three stage and age appropriate

rooms employing qualified teachers in all environments.

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

Rolleston and West Melton early learning centres is built

on having the best possible staff and this will continue at

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

qualified, passionate and caring people who believe in our

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

skills and experience, that they will bring something unique

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

before anything else.”

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

laughter and learning.

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

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

happy, nurtured and challenged children, where the wonder

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

passionate about creating early learning centres that offer a

safe, welcoming and nurturing environment”.

Freckles Early Learning Centre provides space and

opportunity for physical play.

Play is valuable for children’s physical development as

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

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

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

and moveable play equipment is very important for child

development.

YOU ARE WARMLY INVITED to follow our journey as

Freckles develops and becomes part of the Rolleston

community.

REMEMBERING THE SEPTEMBER 4, 2010 QUAKE

MESS: Liz Sutherland cleans up the Darfield Four Square

after stock toppled from the shelves. Above: The once

flat Highfield Rd between Aylesbury and Norwood

opened up in the quake, a permanent rise has been

created.

RESTART: The damaged Leeston Hotel (left)

was replaced by the Crate and Barrel while

the historic Homebush homestead (top)

was demolished to make way for a new

house on the site.

Percussion Professionals Play Darfield

The inventive, highly rhythmic percussion

group “From Scratch” is like no other. The four

percussionists present an upbeat, home-grown

rhythmic music style featuring PVC pipe percussion

and other invented instruments. Visually and

sonically they create their own characteristic sound,

resonant of Aotearoa ō Te Moana Nui a Kiwa, the

islands and shores of the South Pacific.

Drumming enthusiasts who remember Pandemonium,

the percussion workshop sponsored by the Malvern

School of Music in March 2019, will enjoy this

performance on PVC pipe percussion, Nundrum,

Sprong, tuned bells, drums, Zitherum, and more.

Rhythmic and instrument invention lie at the heart of

a “From Scratch” concert, and have earned the group

an international reputation for visually captivating and

sonically mesmerizing performances. The musicians

guide each audience through a magical journey—part

music and part sculpture.

Adrian Croucher, Shane Currey, Phil Dadson and Darryn

Harkness create rhythms and sounds, blending them

into an unforgettable Pacifica message for eyes and ears

of all ages. This NZ group has a forty year-plus history,

and their performance is not to be missed!

Sponsored by Arts on Tour NZ and the Malvern

Community Arts Council, ‘From Scratch’ comes to

Darfield on Saturday, 19 September, 7pm at Trinity

Church Darfield. Tickets are $20 adult, $10 student,

available at Te Huanui Art Gallery in Darfield or at

Quake only a brief interruption for pub

• By Devon Bolger

LYNN TOWNSEND can retell

the moments of September 4,

2010 as if it happened yesterday.

He is the president of the

Lincoln Club which leases the

Famous Grouse Hotel.

“It was pitch black, we couldn’t

see anything until it became daylight.

We had no water and I also

wanted to see what was going on,

so I went down to the village with

some containers.

“I got down

there and was

quite horrified

to see the

damage to the

hotel.”

The

chimney on

the roof of

Lynn

Townsend

the building

had smashed

through what

was known then as the ‘students

bar’, Townsend said.

“All the walls were twisted and

the upstairs floor area was up and

down like a railway track.

“We knew of an engineer who

lived locally and he had a look

and said there’s only one option,

it will have to be demolished.”

Townsend’s own home in

Lincoln suffered minimal

damage – the refrigerator was

knocked over and broken red

wine and Sambuca bottles meant

the carpet needed replacing.

He said he can recall the

district council had staff out

looking at buildings and putting

stickers on them, including one

on the hotel.

The Lincoln Club and hotel

owner moved extremely quickly

and the building was demolished,

except the ‘students bar’, within

five days of the quake.

REBUILT: The Famous Grouse Hotel, Lincoln was badly

damaged in the September 4, 2010 earthquake (left). It was

subsequently demolished and a new hotel was built (above).

PHOTOS: LINCOLN AND DISTRICTS HISTORICAL SOCIETY,

GEOFF SLOAN

Apart from where the chimney

went through the roof, it [students

bar]was pretty well not damaged.

It’s actually where the restaurant

part of the hotel is now.

“I spoke with the landlord

who lives up in the Marlborough

Sounds and you could almost

see the delight on his face

because he knew he had

replacement insurance and knew

he was going to get a new hotel

out of it.”

Townsend said the landlord

asked if he knew of any architects

and he did, his brother Peter

who came from Auckland for

the job.

The students bar became a

temporary bar for the township.

Lincoln only had to go without

its local drinking establishment

for about two weeks.

“That became the watering hole

for the next 12 months while the

new hotel was built.”

IT IS

Fathers Day

WALLY MURDOCH says the

broken nose he got as a result of

the 2010 earthquake could have

been much worse.

The Darfield Motel owner

remembers diving out of bed and

not knowing what was going on.

“It was at that moment I think

that the ground shifted. I was

picked up and face planted

straight into the wall,” he said.

“Luckily for me, I was four

inches to the left otherwise I

would have gone right through

some double pane windows.”

Murdoch was left with a broken

nose and a gash to go with it.

He said there was not much

time to stop and think about it as

his two young daughters, eight

and 12, were in their rooms.

“My wife and I managed to

pull one of my daughters out

of bed but my other daughter, I

couldn’t get into her room.”

The bed had shifted so far

across the room that it had

blocked the doorway.

“We were busy kicking and

pushing on her door and she was

curled up in a foetal position on

the bed not knowing what was

going on.

“She was a bit young. It was

really scary.”

Murdoch said the house had

taken a fairly good hit in the

quake.

REMEMBERING THE SEPTEMBER 4, 2010 QUAKE 11

Ouch! A broken nose

SCARY: Darfield Motel owner Wally Murdoch suffered a

broken nose in the earthquake as he was trying to get to his

daughter.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN ​

“It sustained a lot of fascial

damage. All the mortars shifted,

it wasn’t till about a week later I

realised the impact it had had.

“All of the lead nails on the

roof were sticking up about an

inch and half. I think that’s

from where the house took a real

hit underneath.”

Further inspection found a

large amount of the external

bricks on the house were all

broken through the middle,

Murdoch said.

“It was crazy times, I wouldn’t

want to do it again.”

St Patricks church

grateful for kindness

of other churches

THE ST Patricks Catholic

Church in Lincoln suffered

extensive damage during the

earthquake in 2010.

The original church, which

was built in 1957, had to be

demolished.

The rebuild process began in

June 2018 and the new church,

which cost about $3 million, was

opened 10 months later.

The new building seats 200

people and features an internal

timber structure and exterior

cedar timber cladding.

“The Catholic community

has been truly grateful to the

Wednesday September 2 2020 Selwyn Times

generosity and hospitality of

Rev Mark Barlow and the

Anglican community for

the use of their churches

at Lincoln, Springston and

Rolleston over the past eight

years,” St Patrick’s Parish Pastoral

Council chairwoman Patricia

Smith said.

The demolition of the church

took place in 2008, eight years

before the new building opened

its doors.

In the interim, Catholic

church-goers in the area

were hosted by the Anglican

community.

NEW: St

Patrick’s Parish

REMEMBERING THE SEPTEMBER 4, 2010 QUAKE

Historic church still

awaiting repairs

ST JOHN’S Anglican Church in

Hororata is still awaiting repairs

after it was badly damaged in the

earthquake.

The stone church is a significant

local landmark, the earthquake

caused the bell tower to

partially collapse into the nave

and surrounding gravestones.

The church

organ, which

was originally

installed at

Christchurch

Cathedral

was totally

destroyed.

Jenni Carter

The church

is expected to

be repaired at

a cost of $3 million.

Local initiatives were set up

in the years following the earthquake

to help raise the restoration

costs, notably the Hororata

Highland Games and Hororata

Night Glow.

In an update to the community,

Vicar Jenni Carter

said: “There will be a significant

amount of fundraising to be undertaken,

not only for the repair,

but also for the long-term future

cost of the building.”

SEVERE: The earthquake caused extensive damage to St

John’s Anglican church in Hororata. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN ​

She said the church vestry are

planning a day to explore all

of the available options for the

building going forward.

The first building to be built

on the site was a small wooden

church in 1875, it was later

moved across the road to its current

location for the construction

of the stone church.

The wooden church became

the parish hall, but since the

earthquake, it has been used for

worship services once again.

In 1910, the stone church

had its foundation laid and the

building consecrated in 1911.

The funds were bequeathed

by former New Zealand Prime

Minister Sir John Hall as a

memorial for his late wife,

Lady Rose.

Strong community

spirit in Hororata

COMMUNITY SPIRIT and

pride has been the mantra of

Hororata’s recovery.

The Hororata Community

Trust was formed after the

quake.

Said trust chairman Richard

Lang: “We knew we would

survive but the question was how

to ensure the community and its

people thrived.

“This year (November 7)

the community will celebrate

the 10th Hororata Highland

Games. The games have always

been about community spirit

and pride; developing a strong

identity, a sense of place; it is

about the well-being of our

people.

“Two hundred and twenty

people join Clan Hororata every

year to make the games happen.

These people are connected to

the area, they are passionate

about our community and its

future.

“From the games we have been

able to think big. It has been

the foundation from which the

Hororata tartan, whisky, pie and

Night Glow have grown.”

The games and the Night

Glow last year raised a collective

$30,000. The two festivals

attracted 25,000 people to the

area in 2019.

“Undoubtly Hororata is on

the map because of these events

and this has had a flow-on effect

to all community groups and

businesses in the wider area,”

Lang said.

“A University of Canterbury

economic study carried out

in 2019 found that the games

provides an annual economic

benefit of $370,000 to the Selwyn

District.

“In the past nine years the

trust has invested $150,000 back

into the community through

various projects and donations.

All of this has been possible

because of the many people and

businesses who are connected to

the trust.”

•To commemorate the

10th anniversary of the first

earthquake the Hororata

Community Trust has

released a special limited

edition Hororata Whisky.

In a collector’s edition

decanter, the whisky has

been specially selected by

Sir Alex Bruce of Adelphi

Distillery in Scotland

and Michael Fraser-Mile

from Whisky Galore,

both have been valuable

supporters of the Hororata

Community Trust for a

decade.

Meadow Mushrooms says thank you

After 50 years in Prebbleton,

Meadow Mushrooms is closing its

Prebbleton farm gate for good.

“Prebbleton operations have gradually

been relocated over the last 12 years

to Greendale and Hornby, and now

it’s time for Meadow Mushrooms to

finally say farewell to Prebbleton,” says

Meadow Mushrooms CEO John Barnes.

Meadow Mushrooms has literally grown

up with the Prebbleton community over

the years. “From small beginnings to a

large thriving business today employing

480 staff and supplying mushrooms

the length and breadth of New Zealand,

relocation has been necessary to meet

the growing demand for mushrooms.”

With the establishment of its first

mushroom farm producing only white

button mushrooms in the 70s, Meadow

Mushrooms has taken New Zealanders

on a journey of discovery and

gastronomic delight. The company is

now one of New Zealand’s biggest and

most trusted commercial mushroom

suppliers.

Thank you, Prebbleton

“Meadow Mushrooms would like to

thank the people of Prebbleton for

their support since the business was

first founded in 1970 by Philip Burdon

and Roger Giles – exactly 50 years ago.

We’d also like to take this opportunity

to thank our staff, contractors, suppliers

and customers for their support for

over half a century.”

OPINION 17

CHANGE? The Rolleston New World supermarket may become a Pak’N Save.

New World v Pak’N Save – your views

Readers respond to last

week’s article about

New World Rolleston

possibly becoming a

Pak’N Save

Anne Seyger – It’s a definite

no from me. I don’t want

another boring big food barn

in Rolleston. The New World

provides an excellent service

with a variety of special products

and imports, and is run by an

amazing management team.

All staff are super-friendly and

helpful, which can’t be said for

any of the huge super stores.

Margaret Allan – We have

shopped at New World since

moving here 11 years ago and

would strongly oppose any

change.

Our New World supermarket

is far superior to Pak’N Save and

Countdown in that it has a much

better range and quality of stock.

Also the staff are very helpful

which I have not encountered at

these other supermarkets.

I have shopped at Pak’N Save

in Hornby for convenience on

occasions and would never

support that supermarket if it

came to Rolleston, neither would

I shop at Rolleston Countdown

for anything other than the odd

item for convenience.

Also what would happen to

our New World Club Card? It

has proved to be very beneficial

to customers. We do not need

another supermarket such as is

proposed and I would be very

disappointed if these plans went

ahead.

I must add that I am not alone

in my concern. I know New

World has a very loyal customer

base whom I am sure would be

of the same opinion.

Jenny Daniels – I would be

very disappointed if the New

World supermarket Rolleston

was closed down.

We want to hear your views

on the issues affecting life

in Selwyn

Letters may be edited or rejected at the Selwyn Times'

discretion. Letters should be about 150 words.

A name, postal address and phone number

should be provided.

Please use your real name, not a nickname, alias, pen

name or abbreviation.

I do not consider Pak’N Save

to be an acceptable substitute.

I find products at New World

that I can not find elsewhere,

including venison and stilton

cheese and a larger variety of

blue vein cheeses.

I find Rolleston’s New World

Supermarket a comfortable place

to shop in without the excessive

number of high shelves to find

my way round.

New World supermarkets have

always been my choice wherever

I have been living in New

Zealand.

Heather Weir – I am very

disappointed to hear that there is

a plan to change the New World

Rolleston to a Pak’N Save.

New World has many different

brands and items that neither

Countdown nor Pak’N Save

provide.

It is also streets ahead with its

bakery, meat and fruit and veges,

and deli section. I feel the lower

end of the market is already

catered for with Countdown and

so New World is needed.

If this goes ahead I will be

travelling to Lincoln to buy my

groceries and that’s not good in

a town this size to only look after

one end of the market.

Sally Steele – I have shopped

at New World Rolleston since it

opened, but will definitely shop

elsewhere if it changes to Pak’N

Save.

Paul Lancaster – No we do

not wish to see a Pak’N Save

supermarket here in Rolleston,

as you will know it will lower

the tone of our district and look

terrible.

The New World could be

increased in size if Foodstuffs

wish.

From a personal point of view

if the New World stays it will

save us a trip to Lincoln New

World.

Suzanne Seddon – I would

like Pak’N Save to come to

Rolleston.

Peter Daniels – I think that

New World should not be

replaced, there is a Pak’N Save

only 15 minutes from Rolleston,

and so it does not make sense to

have two so close together.

The staff at New World are

very friendly and helpful. The

layout of the shop means items

are easily seen and found.

If a New World has to be

replaced may I suggest the one

at Lincoln would be a better

candidate, given that there are

more students in the town.

Further, I have been told by

some Lincolnites that they come

through to Rolleston to do their

New World shopping.

R Moore – I am deeply

concerned at the possibility

of New World being replaced

by Pak’N Save. They are such

different supermarkets Pak being

less selective like Countdown

and New World being, more

discerning in its products.

As there is already Countdown

in Rolleston it is important for

customers to have more diversity

available to them therefore New

World should not be replaced

by yet another lower end

supermarket.

Sharyn Bailey – I definitely

would not like to see the New

World Supermarket changed to

a Pak’N Save in Rolleston. New

World is way ahead of Pak’N

Save in many ways.

New World has much more

variety, the shop is much better

set up and displays are so much

better.

The staff are so friendly at New

World and always there to help.

Please don’t change to a secondrate

supermarket. I have shopped

with New World ever since

moving to Rolleston in 2001 and

have been very, very happy with

it. I also shopped at New World

for the previous 15 years before

I moved up here. Please let New

World stay.

Anne Farrington – I would

love to see the existing New

World supermarket in Rolleston

converted into a Pak’N Save.

I am a big fan of Pak’N Save

as I am sure that many Rolleston

residents are.

They have a wide variety of

stock at low prices and often in

bulk buys, which is great when

you have a growing family to

feed.

I currently travel to Hornby

Pak’N Save each week to do my

grocery shopping, and to be able

to do this in my own community

of Rolleston would be excellent.

Pak’N Save has a commitment

to low prices all the time (not

just relying on the odd weekly

specials like other supermarkets),

and with the current economic

climate, we could definitely all

benefit from cheaper grocery

bills.

The idea of having a

community cinema is also very

appealing. We have a rapidly

growing community and I

am sure that an investment

in a cinema would be a very

welcomed idea and a very

successful financial investment

for our community.

Rolleston residents want to put

their hard-earned money back

into their community – let’s hope

this becomes an option for us.

Val Roxburgh – l do not want

the New World to become a Pak’

N Save. I do not like Pak’ N Save

stores. They don’t always carry

items that are always available in

the New World and I don’t want

to pack my own groceries.

The staff at New World do the

packing so quickly and easily.

I have Shopped at the

Rolleston New World for 16

years and have always found that

they give an excellent service.

All the staff are always there

to help or take you to where the

item you are looking for is. Not

so at Pak’ N Save. You are lucky

to find anyone there to help.

Also Roy Bridgeman, the

owner of the New World, has

been wonderful and so generous

in giving to the community.

The staff at the New World

become friends when you shop

a lot there and they get to know

you. As for pulling down the

building that was upgraded not

so many years back is like some

of some other decisions that the

council here is so short-sighted.

The way Rolleston is growing

there is probably room for

another supermarket. So leave

our New World as it is.

Earthquake Reflections

from Kelvin Coe

Remembering 4 September

10 years on

Have your say on access to the

Rolleston town centre

We want your feedback on proposed changes to the design and

layout of the Rolleston town centre.

Consultation is opening this week on changes we’ve proposed for

the roads, pedestrian areas and car parks.

The main change suggested is not removing the planned extension of

Wordsworth Street, which would have run through the town centre.

This will improve pedestrian access across the town centre and

encourage reduced speeds. In addition, feedback has been that the

street created a divide in the town centre which would have seen

pedestrians dispersed either side of the road.

The consultation will also cover the planned one-way entry from

Tennyson Street, entry to the town centre car park from Rolleston Drive

and Tennyson Street and pedestrian walkways through car parks.

Pedestrian access is an important part of the town centre design, to

make it a space that will be accessible and welcoming for everyone

in the district

The new library, Te Ara Ātea, will act as a hub alongside the town

square and there will be dedicated areas focused on providing

activities and access for young people and those with a range

of abilities.

The first stage of the project is progressing with Tennyson Street being

upgraded and Te Ara Ātea under construction and due for completion

in mid-2021. To give your feedback visit selwyn.govt.nz/rtcroading or

pick up a form from any of the Selwyn Libraries, or the Council Offices

in Rolleston.

Ten years on from the magnitude 7.8 earthquake that struck at 4.35am on 4 September 2010,

Council Call caught up with then Mayor Kelvin Coe to reflect on the day and its legacy.

“At first we all thought it was the Alpine Fault. We were all expecting the Alpine Fault to go, we

weren’t expecting an earthquake down on the flat,” Mr Coe says.

In the dark and confusion of the first few hours he was impressed at how quickly organisations

such as the Council Civil Defence team, rural volunteer fire brigade, police and community

volunteers sprang into action and worked together.

The scale of the damage became clear during a mid-morning helicopter flight, he says.

“The tear in the ground went from Izone to up past Hororātā. There was damage to the roads,

the sewage treatment plant in Rolleston had been knocked out and then there was the houses.

You could see the damage in Hororātā where lots of houses had lost chimneys. And over Tai

Tapu you could see the liquefaction, you could see these earth volcanoes all along where the

liquefaction had come up and then a house and then more liquefaction.”

The community rallied round each other, he says. Farmers were especially quick to work

together to ensure cows were milked, silos repaired and people supported.

Then there was a huge effort to ensure buildings were stickered for damage, roads and services

reinstated and planning got under way for the huge changes ahead.

Selwyn was already one of the fastest growing areas of the country, but it was clear the

earthquakes would accelerate that growth, Mr Coe says.

The Council pressed ahead with major projects such as the Selwyn Aquatic Centre, and Lincoln

Event Centre was completed. There has been a legacy of new urban growth adding to and

strengthening existing communities, he says.

Selwyn is now more urban and diverse than we were before but with the damage repaired,

lessons learned and remembered, life goes on and we move on too.”

Update from

Foster Park

The first roof panels have started to go

up at the Foster Park Indoor Courts,

the first of a series of milestones in the

courts construction.

The roof and innovative insulated wall

panelling will be going up over the

next few weeks as the exterior of the

building takes shape. Friday will also

see the first of the courts themselves

begin to take shape as over 100

concrete trucks are due to pour the

main indoor court floor during an 18

hour shift. The centre will feature eight

courts for indoor sport, a climbing wall,

upstairs indoor walking track and space

for clubs and sporting groups to be

based. It is due for completion ahead of

the 2021 winter sports season.

Motorcycle awareness month

September is Motorcycle Awareness Month and people are being

reminded to look twice for motorcycles.

September marks the start of the riding season for many

motorcyclists in New Zealand. It is the month when over half of all

motorcyclists get their bikes out of the garage, get back on the road

and look forward to the long summer of riding.

It’s an important time for all motorists to know that they’ll see more

motorcycles on the road. The Council is reminding people to look

twice, especially at intersections and before changing lanes, and to

check blind spots. Look twice and save a life.

Over 100 Selwyn community members and organisations have been recognised for their selfless acts of

kindness and professionalism during the COVID-19 lockdown.

A ceremony was held before last week’s Council meeting to recognise those who received awards

through the Council-organised ‘Selwyn’s Covid Heroes’ campaign.

The Council teamed up with Te Taumutu Rūnanga and the Selwyn Times to launch the campaign in

June, inviting the public to nominate their Covid heroes’ in response to the overwhelming number of

stories about those going the extra mile to help their communities.

Mayor Sam Broughton says, “It was important for us to recognise the amazing work in our

communities; the people of Selwyn really had each other’s backs. At the same time we wanted to give

people the chance to say a public thank you to the person, shop, school or organisation that made a

difference for them.”

Te Taumutu Chairperson Liz Brown, Selwyn Times editor Barry Clarke and the Mayor presented

certificates to five notable nominees. Each of the nominees will receive an identical certificate by post.

“I wish it would have been possible to give each and every person their certificates personally,” Mayor

Sam says. “The amazing people here today are receiving their certificates in person on behalf of all the

others nominations”.

Rachael Inch from the Selwyn Creative Network who received her certificate at the ceremony, was

nominated for her community service. “Often when we volunteer we do it without recognition or thanks

so to be recognised like this is humbling,” she says.

Manu Rangimoekau and Paul Talbot who run the Suburban

Eatery in Leeston were nominated three times for reaching

out with acts of kindness and generosity. The nominations

were “very humbling and so unexpected”, Manu says.

The other nominees at the ceremony were St John’s

Ambulance volunteer Jane Potts, from Darfield, for her

selfless dedication and professionalism to the community

and Penny Curran from Lincoln nominated for helping a

vulnerable couple stay safe by shopping for them.

A full list of the nominees is available at selwyn.govt.nz/heroes.

NEWS

• By Devon Bolger

SENIOR Constable Bruce

Ward is being recognised

for his work making a

difference in the lives

of disadvantaged young

people.

The Rolleston-based

officer has been named as

a finalist in the Westfield

Local Heroes awards.

It is in recognition of his

work with the Blue Light

programme.

Through Blue Light,

Ward organises camps,

mentoring and fun activities

to guide young people

onto a more positive path.

“It was great news and

exciting for Blue Light. I’ve

been involved with it for

17 years and this is really

a reward for working with

young people but also for

the organisation,’’ he said

“Some positive news in

the Covid-filled bleak news

that is everywhere at the

moment.”

If he is successful, the

$10,000 grant that comes

with the award will be put

towards the Blue Light

programme through additional

camps for young

people.

This is including one for

Muslim girls traumatised

by the mosque attacks.

Young Guide cleans up park

EMMA SEVIER says she

is amazed at the amount

of rubbish she found

on a clean-up around

Prebbleton.

The Lincoln resident

was picking up rubbish at

the nature park as part of

training for Girl Guides.

“New Zealand is not

clean and green as it appears

to be if what I saw

is the same everywhere in

our community.

“It was amazing to see

that there was actually

quite a lot of rubbish. The

car park is where the majority

of the rubbish is.”

Emma said she found

beer bottles and caps,

Band-Aids and a variety of

different plastic.

“Then as I walk around

the park, I found a lot

more plastic, a broken sign,

chocolate and sweet wrappers,

lots of green tape and

a Le Snack wrapper.”

Pie Day Fridays connect

rural communities

Pie Day Fridays are being held throughout

North Canterbury as a way to connect

farmers during a rough time.

Organised by the North Canterbury

Rural Support Trust (NCRST) the

community events will be held at seven

different cafes and bakeries, and not

necessarily on a Friday, says Claire Ford,

NCRST Coordinator.

“Things have not been easy lately for

our rural farmers, including Covid and

drought leading to a lack of feed so we

would like to help support those who

are working so hard to keep this country

afloat,” says Claire who came up with

the idea after going to the local diary or

bakery for a pie for farm staff on a Friday.

All seven bakeries and cafes have been

enthusiastic with their support for Pie Day

Friday and helping farmers within their

local communities.

The event is being held throughout

September in Dunsandel, Darfield,

Oxford, Greta Valley, Kaikoura, Cheviot

and Waiau from 12 until 1.30pm.

“The whole team at NCRST are also so

supportive of this idea as they to know the

value of farmers, staff and their family to

have a short break off farm and socialising

with others in their communities.”

NCRST representatives will be at all

the Pie Day Friday events giving out the

vouchers and other resources.

The trust was set up in 1988, during the

“Rogernomics” era by the late Dorothy

Oakley who gathered a few other wives

who were getting very worried about their

menfolk and, with Grant McFadden from

MAF, they received some funding and

started doing support work in the area.

The Trust has grown and now has over

20 area representatives throughout North

Canterbury who are ready to

help you out if and when the

rural communities need it.

“We are all farmers or ex

farmers and at some stage

in our farming careers have

been stuck in a creek, some

of us more than once and

that at times we all need just

a bit of a helping hand to get

out of that creek,” says Claire.

“NCRST is here for you in

times of need such as now

and can put you in touch

with the right people for your

situation and facilitate getting

you the right information

and providing emotional support.”

If you, a family member or someone you

know in your community needs their help

please call the Trust Coordinator on 0800

787 254.

For more information on the Friday

Pie Day dates and venues please see the

advertisement in this issue of Selwyn

Times.

that may seem overwhelming.

Watson achieves world record

Arable farmer Eric Watson from

Ashburton produced a new Guinness

World Record in February this year for

the highest wheat yield of 17.398 tonnes

per hectare.

Eric already held the record since 2017

with 16.791 tonnes per hectare/ha.

“Beating my previous record by almost

600kg/ha exceeded even my highest

hopes. It was great being able to achieve

another incredible result,” he says.

“While we were thrilled with the record

result in 2017, we saw ways in which we

could make improvements and achieve an

even higher yield.”

Key contributors to the increased

yield were switching to liquid nitrogen,

using new cultivars and continuing to

monitor plant health closely.

“The Guinness World Record is

recognition of our hard work, the

assistance given by David Weith of

Bayer Crop Science and Paul Johnston

of Yara,” says Eric.

Canterbury arable farms have had

considerable success growing wheat

in the region. The reasons include a

moderate climate and good soils, along

with irrigation.

“We also have very good farmers.”

Canterbury’s climate, particularly in

coastal areas where his farm is located,

does not get too hot and dewy nights

means the crop can recover if it is hot.

Eric’s world record

wheat crop was

planted in April 2019

and harvested on 17

February 2020, the

wheat variety is Kerrin,

bred by KWS and

supplied by Carrfields

Grain & Seed.

On average, irrigated

wheat yields in New

Zealand produce around

12t/ha, demonstrating

how remarkable the

new record is – an

achievement providing

insights into innovations

for future growth.

Watson, who previously

farmed a mixed sheep

and crop farm at Ealing,

moved to the solely

cropping farm on the

good soils of Wakanui 27

years ago.

“It’s all about attention

to detail, and getting

things done at the right

time.”

held this record.

Goats a profitable addition to

sheep and beef farms

Goats can add simple and low-cost

production benefits to bottom-line

profitability for sheep and beef operations,

explains Garrick Batten.

Our feral goats are low-cost breeding

stock with a widespread genetic base to

work with.

Mated to appropriate bucks, they are just

as suitable as other breeds. Controlled by

relatively cheap effective electric fencing

when trained, they can be handled on the

few needed occasions in existing facilities

with only minor modifications.

Sheep farmers most enjoy working with

animals and producing healthy stock.

They least enjoy animal health problems,

dagging, docking, dipping and repeat

manual work.

Appropriate goat grazing management

significantly reduces or eliminates

sheep drenching at $2.20 per SU, no

wool shearing, tailing, dagging at $3

per SU, disease or pregnancy testing or

even vaccinations in the yards. No viral

pneumonia, flystrike, bearings, cast ewes,

reproductive difficulties, facial eczema

to monitor and cure. Easier and quicker

mustering and yard work with intelligent,

easily trained goats.

Feed cost is directly related to goat

stocking rate per ha. Free-ranging low

numbers have minimal additional feed

cost. Adding 10% of goat LW to existing

farm stock LW, will mainly eat unused

and currently wasted feed on hill country.

Clover percentage in mixed pasture will

improve over time at no cost and can

be increased by 25%-plus with more

concentrated goat rotational grazing.

Measuring that benefit from improved

feed quality in other stock is difficult, but

increased store lamb weight from 23-29kg

on clover enhanced pastures could add

$25 per head and earlier disposal.

Goats have a key biological weed

control of environmental benefits without

chemical and diesel use. There’s also

no work safety and application timing

considerations costs, but income from

four-legged control. Even one thistle per

10m² reduces pasture by 8%. Goats also

control scrub weeds as well.

Farmers compare meat prices based on

their experienced knowledge of animals,

products and markets. Goat meat has no

age, sex or carcase finish specifications

and consistently stable schedule value

between 8 and 18 kg. Being able to use

goats as a flying herd to reduce farm stock

levels for any climatic reason – without

price penalty – can be a significant

management advantage.

Goats can have other advantages over

cattle to groom longer pasture. As they

do not like water, even the $5 per metre,

two-wire cattle fence and alternative water

sources are not required for waterway

exclusion.

There is also no NAIT, TB or pregnancy

testing expensive handling equipment. No

pasture treading damage in winter with

lower hoof pressure. Urine patches are

spread more, less intense, with reduced N

loss and contamination.

All animals die and have health

problems by the head, so such events are

significantly more important with cattle.

Cattle reproductive rate, and capital

and husbandry costs comparisons are

magnified by the goat alternative.

goat industry expert and published

Wool sector faces tough

decisions

Once a stalwart of our economy, the wool

sector faces some tough decisions to

ensure its survival. Piers Fuller reports.

For those lanolin-soaked old shearers

who remember the glory days of the New

Zealand wool industry, the collapse of

our strong wonder fibre is something of a

disaster.

For many modern economists, the

writing is on the wall and it is time to face

reality and produce something the world

wants.

Unfortunately, what the world has

wanted in recent decades has been cheap,

petroleum-based synthetics.

At its peak in the early 1950s, almost

half of the country’s export earnings

were generated by wool; by 2019, that

proportion was less than one per cent.

Last shearing season some farmers were

barely getting $1 a kilo for our traditional

strong wool - not nearly enough to pay to

take it off the sheep.

Whether observers think our

homegrown wonder fibre is on the cusp

of a collapse or a renaissance depends on

perspective, but it is evident that wool

holds a special place in Kiwis’ hearts, and

nobody wants to see it disappear.

The industry is not taking strong wool’s

desperate situation lying down, nor is the

Government for that

matter, and there is

confidence that the

country can create

a pathway back

to profitability for

wool.

Others say it is

time for the market

to adapt, despite

New Zealand’s

historical fondness

for the product.

Westpac senior

agri-economist

Nathan Penny says

the answer was quite

clear, and we needed

to stop producing

something that

people don’t want

and focus on what

they do want.

“I do think the

answer’s been staring us in the face, but

there is quite a bit of attachment to what

has been a flagship product for New

Zealand for a very long time, but the

world moves on and the world is saying

coarse wool really isn’t on many people’s

radar.

“The logical thing to do from a business

point of view is look to reduce our

production of it.”

It is important to note that fine and

medium wools, such as merino, are still

viable products, but they are also seeing

reduced demand in the current Covid

climate.

Penny was not surprised by the weakness

in wool demand as the world’s economies

tighten their belts and concentrate on

food-related commodities.

He says there’s been a double-hit to

wool demand at the coarse end of the

fibre range, which has accelerated

the longstanding trend of weak

prices.

“The general story is there

are plenty of alternatives to

wool, synthetic in particular, and

in the current environment there is the

added complication of low oil prices, so

synthetics have become even cheaper.”

He suggests farmers adapt by

changing to varieties of sheep that

produce finer wools and focus on

meat.

“In recent years, meat has been

paying the bills. Now farmers

are increasingly getting less

and less for their coarse

wool, it’s actually becoming a

cost line and opposed to a revenue line in

their farm businesses.

“Now the signal is loud and clear, noone

is really interested in that product, so

it’s a clear signal to stop producing it.”

That’s an enticing prospect to a farmer

who’s just spent tens of thousands

removing the wool from their sheep with

very little in return.

32 Selwyn Times Wednesday September 2 2020

Volvo S60 built to sport sedan values

I STILL FIND it quite strange

that out of the two highlyregarded

Swedish car makers,

only one remains – Volvo.

For decades Volvo and Saab

battled it out in most global

markets selling their products

with an emphasis on safety and

performance.

Both companies entered

partnerships with other major

automotive conglomerates, and

it looked as if they both had rosy

futures, yet only Volvo survived.

I am concerned though,

Volvo has struggled through the

coronavirus outbreak, production

in the Swedish factories has been

affected, which will ultimately

have a flow-on effect on product.

I’m hoping this great luxury/

performance car maker will

bounce back, I’d hate it to be a

casualty.

Nevertheless, prior to the

pandemic Volvo had embarked

on a product development plan

that would allow it to continue to

compete solidly on a global level

amidst a wealth of other luxury

marques.

Locally, Volvo is represented by

a solid dealer network, and there

is a good selection of product at

present. Most of it is sport utility

vehicle-focussed, but within

its line-up there are a couple of

surprises, and they are the cars

that excite me the most.

Just recently I drove the new

V60 T8 station wagon, its 2-litre

turbocharged and supercharged

engine stood out for its muscular

performance yet also its economy,

its plug-in hybrid technology

promotes substantial fuel usage

savings. I became very smitten

with that car, it represented

all of the values I like in a

vehicle. When I took it back I

immediately swapped it for the

S60 sedan.

Whereas in the past the

difference between the V and S

series was mostly the choice of

sedan or wagon, today there’s

a lot more change. The S60

sedan doesn’t get the hybrid

driveline and the engine is sans

supercharger, it’s the same basic

engine design, but it just gets

turbocharged technology.

Now, before you think that’s a

backward step, don’t be fooled.

The S60 T5 is a smart car and

didn’t lose any credibility with

me, it is a fine luxury vehicle, and

is genuinely honest. What’s more,

if you don’t need the capacity of

a wagon and don’t want outright

VOLVO S60 T5: Complete luxury and performance car.

speed, then you can save $32,000

straight up.

The S60 T5 lists at $82,900

against $114,900 for the T8, and

the T8 evaluation car that I drove

was full of kit which added an

extra $6500.

That being the case, the S60 T5

sits well in the luxury market and

is still no slouch when it comes to

power and performance. Volvo

rates it with a 192kW power

output and a beefy 400Nm of

torque. That’s enough to propel

the vehicle from a standstill

to 100km/h in 6.3sec. It will

also lunge through a highway

overtake (80-120km/h) in 4.5sec.

These times aren’t to be sneezed

at, and all of the time when you

are driving the T5 it feels feisty,

drive is through an eight-speed

traditional automatic gearbox,

and power is delivered through

all four corners.

Volvo also claims a 7.3l/100km

combined cycle fuel economy

average. Well, that’s far distant to

the 2l/100km claim of its more

powerful yet hybrid stablemate,

which is a compromise. But for

me, I’d not be bothered, there

is more about driving a Volvo

than saving fuel. However, I did

my usual fuel usage checks, and

at 100km/h on the highway the

readout was listing 5.6l/100km

instantaneously, the engine

quite relaxed, just ticking over

at 1700rpm in eighth gear.

When I took the car back to the

dealership the combined cycle

average was sitting at around

9l/100km.

As I’ve alluded to, the T5 is

a luxury car which borders on

performance, and it feels just

so right to be in. The interior is

quality through and through,

and the controls are just lovely

to manipulate. The S60 (and

V60) feels like a big car but it

• Price – Volvo S60 T5,

$82,900

• Dimensions – Length,

4761mm; width, 1850mm;

height, 1427mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

1969cc, 192kW, 400Nm,

eight-speed automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 6.3sec

• Fuel usage – 7.3l/100km

isn’t overly sizeable at 4.76m. It is

compact but space on the inside

is generous, and with cocooning

seats you feel quite stately inside.

It also provides true sports car

feel. Everything about the way the

chassis is set-up is engineered for

safety and an involving driving

experience.

Disappointingly, Volvo

evaluation vehicles don’t come

around often. I particularly

enjoyed my two weeks with the

wagon and sedan, and quite

simply I’d have to sit on the fence

if I was asked which variant I

enjoyed the most. Both stood out

in different ways, and because

I’m a big fan of both sedans and

wagons they each had individual

merit.

Any buyer will be guaranteed

a spectacular purchase, a car that

will serve well for decades, not

forgetting it has the traditional

values that make Volvo the

exceptional car maker it is.

Fingers crossed for a bright

future.

Local bottle store rebrands

with some exciting offers

The former Henry’s bottle store, next to Repco

in Rolleston Drive, has rebranded under the

Liquorland banner with a stylish modern look that

makes shopping for your favourite tipple a pure

pleasure. Liquorland Rolleston Drive’s makeover

includes brand new shelving and a spacious layout

with modish LED lighting and clear signage.

To accompany the classy look, Liquorland Rolleston

Drive has expanded the beverages available, bringing

in a selection of products from around the globe. “It’s

not just the interior that has been updated. We’ve

added more than 500 new products to our existing

range,” says Chetan, a former Liquorland Franchisee

of the Year winner in 2015 with grand plans for the

new-look Rolleston Drive store.

This includes stocking the best range of products

available in Rolleston, making the store a one-stopshop

for all your beverage needs. To match the

diverse tastes of customers in Rolleston they have

wines from world-leading cultivars from South Africa,

Italy, France, & Spain.

Of course, local wine, beer and spirits also feature

prominently in the store. “We’ve even carefully

sourced a range of boutique craft beers from across

New Zealand – like Three Boys, Behemoth, Kaiser,

Epic, Deep Creek, Cassels, Sawmill – as well as ready

to drink (RTD) pre-mixed spirits.

“Talking of RTD, we provide a range of RTD spirits as

well as low carb and low sugar options – all under

one roof,” says the franchise holder.

Rolleston locals, who have watched the store grow

in their neighbourhood will now see their

favourite bottle store take its offerings up a

notch or two, with the same convenient parking

outside the door.

Locally Owned Liquorland Rolleston Drive

has a friendly team of locals who are helpful,

knowledgeable, ready to go the extra mile and

also very customer-focused. They are not only

willing to source specific products outside

of their regular range, but also offer delivery

service to your doorstep. It doesn’t get more

convenient than that.

Regular tasting, competitions and great value

specials are just some of the new and exciting

things in store at Liquorland Rolleston Drive.

Their aim is to provide the best deals for locals

with everyday value, avoiding price fluctuations.

They also offer Flybuys and Airpoints, and are an

ideal outlet for sports clubs or businesses to reach

out to for collaboration and trade deals.

Stay up to date with their specials,

competitions and tastings - follow

“Liquorland Rolleston Drive” on Facebook.

What is a cross lease property?

“Cross leases are a complicated form

of property ownership in New Zealand

and lots of people find them hard to

understand. In fact, they can be so

troublesome that the Law Commission

has recommended they are abolished,”

says Real Estate Authority chief executive,

Kevin Lampen-Smith.

There are four main types of property

ownership in New Zealand – freehold,

leasehold, unit title and cross lease. In a

cross lease, you own a share of the freehold

title with the other cross leaseholders and

a leasehold interest in the particular area

and building that you occupy.

“It’s important to understand what

buying a cross lease property might

mean for you. Many people don’t do their

due diligence on cross leases and find

themselves in a bit of a mess as a result,

Lampen-Smith says.

Cross leases are common in areas where

there has been a lot of subdividing of

larger sections, or in blocks of two to four

units – the houses may be standalone

homes, or they may be units/flats. In a

cross lease title, property owners share

ownership of the land and the buildings

on it.

If you hold a cross lease, you are a partowner

of every building on the plot of land

– not just the one you occupy – with the

other leaseholders. Each cross leaseholder

is granted what is known as a registered

leasehold estate of the particular area and

building that they occupy. These leases

are usually for 999 years for a nominal

rent, like 10 cents per annum. Each lease

sets out exclusive areas of occupation as

well as any shared or common areas. In

other words, your house or unit is set

apart just for you and your family, but you

have equal access to shared areas (like a

driveway, or garages, or a common garden

area). A cross lease title also includes a

plan of the footprint of the property, called

the flats plan, so you can see if it matches

the property you are looking at.

This form of shared ownership means

that any structural changes to the property

or shared areas must be agreed upon by all

the owners.

“Depending on the terms of the

cross lease, you may need to get the

other owners’ consent for things like

painting the exterior of your property,

building a deck or putting up a fence.

These provisions are usually referred

to as covenants. A covenant may place

restrictions on what you may do with

the unit or building, so it is important to

understand what they mean – this is where

things can get tricky,” Lampen-Smith says.

“For example, let’s say that you own a

cross lease property that you want to sell.

You and your co-owners share driveway

access and some common garages, but you

have a buyer for your property who is only

interested if they can knock down one of

the garages. If the property was freehold,

where there is one sole owner, the new

buyer could do what they liked (within

the limits of the council restrictions).

However, because it’s a cross lease

property, the buyer would have to get all

the other owners to agree (and offer their

consent in writing),” Lampen-Smith says.

“Be careful when making enclosed

additions to a cross-leased property

(for example, adding an extra room or

conservatory). Even if you do get the other

owners’ consent to do it, it will change the

overall floor plan of the property and you

will have to have the flats plan altered so

the change is shown. This will cost money,

but if you don’t do it the land title will not

be accurate and this can cause problems

when you go to sell.”

“I strongly recommend engaging a

lawyer to review the terms of a cross lease

property. Their first step should be to

check that any property you are interested

in matches the one marked on the flats

plan. They will help you unpick all the

conditions of a cross lease agreement,

including finding out what the restrictions

are and how many other owners are

involved. A lawyer will also be able to

advise you if there are particular issues

with the property you are interested in and

find out what changes have been made by

other owners,” says Lampen-Smith.

“A Land Information Memorandum

(LIM) will also show you information

held by the local council about a certain

property and land. It may be worth getting

an independent assessment of a cross

lease property from an inspector who has

professional indemnity insurance and

carries out their work in line with the New

Zealand Standard for Residential Property

Inspection (NZ S 4306:2005).”

“As always, it’s smart to figure out as

much as you can about a cross lease

property at the start of your home-buying

process rather than after the fact,” says

Lampen-Smith.

What home buyers should know

about insurance

For most Kiwis, your home is probably

the single biggest purchase you’ll ever

make. It’s a stressful process and it makes

sense that you’d want to secure insurance

to protect yourselves and your new home

from natural disaster, fire or any other

accidental events.

Real Estate Authority (REA) chief

executive Kevin Lampen-Smith, says:

“Adding ‘insurance’ near the top of your

checklist when hunting for a house is

now very important as the insurance

market is changing. A bank or lender

will want proof that you have arranged

property insurance before settlement,

even if you have conditional pre-approval

with your finances”.

To work out if a property can be

insured, contact different insurance

companies to get a quote. It can also be a

good idea to talk to an insurance broker.

They are independent insurance experts,

who work for you and are not attached

to an insurance company. They will give

you advice on what might be best for

your situation – identifying risks and

recommending cost-effective solutions.

“If you already have contents insurance,

get in touch with your insurer first to see

if they’ll offer you property insurance,”

says Lampen Smith.

Insurers often ask lots of questions

about your personal insurance history

and whether you (or anyone who will be

living at the property) have any criminal

convictions. “This is because they want

to be sure that you are a ‘good risk’, especially

since this will be your first home.

Having an existing relationship with an

insurer means that you have already been

assessed in this way,” Lampen-Smith

says.

An insurer will want to know as much

as possible about the property you want

to buy – its address, age, condition, size

and the materials it is made from. If the

house is being sold by a licensed real

estate agent, they should be able to help

you out with this information. “You can

ask the agent if the property is currently

insured and whether there have been any

issues with the property that could affect

its chances of being reinsured in the

future,” Lampen-Smith says.

“If you are aware of other risks to the

property that an insurer is unlikely to

know about, such as landslip issues –

even if there has not been any damage

to the home yet – you need to tell the

insurer when applying for a quote or for

cover. For example, if the house is in an

area that has been flooded before, an

insurer may limit or exclude any cover

for flood damage. If this is the case,

it’s better to know as early as possible,”

Lampen-Smith says.

“You can contact the Earthquake

Commission (EQC) directly to see what

information they might have on record

regarding potential damage to the property

from natural disasters.”

“I also suggest seeking legal advice

before signing a sale and purchase agreement

as you may need to make confirmation

of insurance an important condition

of your offer,” says Lampen-Smith.

There are a few different types of insurance

– ‘sum insured’ is the most common

in New Zealand.

The Insurance

Council of New

Zealand (ICNZ)

has a great guide to

house and contents

insurance, which

runs through the

options.

Insurance companies

are reassessing

how they cover

coastal or clifftop

properties or

properties in low

lying areas that may suffer from seawater

inundation due to the increasing risk of

environmental damage or rising sea levels.

This means that the cost of premiums

may increase, exclusions may be added,

or insurance cover may be withdrawn for

some properties as the risk changes. EQC

doesn’t cover damage to land from coastal

erosion (although it does cover storm

and flood damage to land) or damage to

residential structures or contents from

storms, floods or coastal erosion.

“While earthquake damage is covered

by EQC, you must have private home

insurance first to qualify for it,” Lampen-Smith

says. The premium you pay is

broken down into the cover that goes to

the company and a levy that goes to EQC

and Fire and Emergency NZ. From 1 July

2019, EQC no longer covers contents –

affecting policy holders on the anniversary

date of their existing policy, which

is generally the annual renewal date, or if

you take out a new policy.

“If an insurer agrees to cover a property

you wish to buy, let your lender know

immediately. You will need the insurance

to start on settlement day, when

the property officially becomes yours,

even if you aren’t moving in that day. In

most cases you can set the insurance up

around 6–8 weeks before you settle –

arranging it early means one less thing to

do close to your settlement day.”

“If you can’t find an insurer willing to

insure the house you are keen to buy,

it may be safer to walk away. If you do

find an insurer for the property, make

sure you read and understand the policy.

And, don’t leave any insurance matters

to the last minute or fail to read the fine

details in documents the insurer sends

you once cover has been arranged,” says

Lampen-Smith.

hat size home do you need?

Brick cladding is more affordable.

Tiny houses and smaller homes are trendy and realistically

how many square metres do you really need? Determining

a suitable size for your new home will be influenced by the

number of bedrooms needed, whether a separate lounge is

desired, size of garage required and your budget.

A smaller home is not always more affordable in terms of

the square metre rate as certain costs are still incurred such as

Council consent fees, and drainage and wiring from the street.

While going larger does mean more materials and time

constructing the home, its relative cost may make it a better

buy due to certain parts of the home like the garage being more

affordable to construct. It is the additional features, which

pushes up the price.

Savings can be made on a new build by choosing more

affordable quality fixtures and fittings, which are not super

fashionable or top of the line. The kitchen and bathrooms in

particular can chew up the dollars. The black sink and tapware

may look good but how long will you be living with it and will

it still be in vogue in five or ten years’ time. Renovating that

soon, may not be part of your plans.

It is a matter of achieving a balance between those desired

extra features and making your home special while sticking to

the budget. A pantry may be high on the list yet does it need a

Weatherproofing tips

for your house design

Insulation and double glazed

windows are compulsory in new

homes making them infinitely

superior to their older counterparts

for warmth yet more can be done

to weatherproof a new home.

Underfloor insulation

Foam insulated expanded polystyrene

panels under the concrete slab act as an

insulating barrier, stopping cold coming

through from under the house.

Garages

Insulating the garage and its door will

cut down on a steady stream of cold air

sneaking into the house.

An insulated garage door can lift the

temperature substantially even when the

garage itself is not heated, making it a more

pleasant place to spend time.

Any home appliances kept in the garage

will use less electricity as they will not have

to work as hard and your car battery may

last longer.

Roof design

Roof designs vary. The simplest way to

achieve a weather tight house is to have a

simple roof design with an overhanging

surfeit. Architectural flat roofs will work

though more care is needed to achieve

weather tightness especially where there

are hidden or back roof gutters.

Having a roof with no overhang also

requires more care with the design due to

its complexity and potential for problems.

Regular maintenance to clean out leaves

and debris that gets caught in the roof will

be advantageous in both cases.

Porticos

Taking the roof out beyond the house is

ideal for providing a sheltered area for

spending time outdoors when the weather

is inclement.

Snow straps or guttering protection

Wherever snow is a likely part of winter,

installation of snow straps is a good idea.

These prevent damage to guttering from

the weight of snow as it slides off the

roof. Alternatively, an expanded steel

mesh product such as Gutter Guard could

be fitted. This has the added benefit of

preventing spouting blockages from leaf

and other debris.

Capitalise on the sun

Maximise the sun’s free energy with plenty

of windows, especially on the north side of

the house.

Outdoor areas

When choosing a house design, consider

how it will sit on the section and whether

it offers potential to catch sun inside the

home and for sunny sheltered outdoor

areas away from prevailing winds.

Windows and doors

Upgrade on the minimum standard for

double glazing with thermally broken

joinery and low-emissivity argon gas filled

windows and doors, increasing insulation

effectiveness.

Energy efficient heating

Explore heating options, selecting what will

work best given the size of home and family

needs. Heat pumps are an efficient form

of heating with two cassette and energy

saving options available while heat transfer

systems are great if there is a log burner.

sink and would shelving instead of cupboards do? A washbasin

in the main toilet may not add that much extra to the cost

and could be convenient when entertaining, though it is still

another expense. A double vanity is great if he and she arise

at the same time then fight for space in the bathroom but it

means two sinks to clean and takes up more space. Fully tiled

bathrooms look glamorous and certainly have the wow factor

yet tiling round the bath and laying vinyl planking could also

make a statement. If you need storage space you may consider

cupboards inside or a larger garage with built-in shelving and

attic trusses.

When it comes to cladding, brick is still the most affordable

though this depends on the type of brick chosen. High

end cedar and schist look great however a more affordable

alternative might be mingling a brick cladding with linear

board for effect. Hip and gable roofs are still the most

affordable and may be a suitable substitute for a skillion roof if

no preference is held.

As you finalise your house design, work with your

architectural designer or building representative to determine

the features you really want and those which might be

excluded, as well as where changes might be made to make

your new home affordable and practical for you.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Selecting a house design

Showhomes offer lots of ideas

Consider how the home will sit on its section

Consider kitchen layouts you like

The choice of house design should not

only be influenced by your needs and

wants but also by how the home will sit

on its section.

Three and four bedroom homes are

most commonly constructed. Larger

families may require more bedrooms and

couples or those living alone may choose

a two bedroom home.

Some buyers will seek to lower the

cost by building smaller. This may not

equate to a cheaper build. More size in

theory does mean a higher build cost yet

it depends on the features incorporated

into the home. Smaller homes still need

to be plumbed, wired and have drains

laid and economies of scale may be

achieved by going larger. Some rooms,

like kitchens and bathrooms cost more,

compared to bedrooms and the garage.

The quality of features also makes a

difference.

Before seriously considering any house

design, identify how much you can

afford to put into a new home. This will

be based on your equity, savings and

available/approved finance.

Showhomes offer lots of ideas.

Finding out the build cost of each and

what is extra to the company’s level of

specifications for that particular house

will be helpful.

List down your needs and also what

you would like in the home (your wants),

ranking the latter. Factors to consider

are: house size; number of bedrooms

and living areas needed/desired; kitchen

layouts you like and features you want in

this room; number of bathrooms and size

of these; garage vehicle/storage capacity;

storage within the home; siting of the

laundry (in the garage or as a separate

room).

You may engage an architect or

architectural draftsman to draw up a

design or choose one of the designs

available through a building company.

Check out the house plans available

at showhomes and also on building

company websites. Most companies will

be happy to adapt one of their plans to

suit your needs. Take into account, the

orientation of your section and how best

to position your home for sun and for

pleasant outdoor living spaces.

Collect a selection of house designs

you like. Weigh up how each will meet

your needs and provide for your wants.

Discard any designs which fall short

in terms of delivering the ideal home

for you, within budget. Short-list the

remaining designs then give yourself

time to consider each.
