New motorway on-ramp

an ‘issue’ concedes NZTA

• By Devon Bolger

THE NEW northbound on-ramp

from Halswell Junction Rd is part of

$195 million major roading hub on the

Southern Motorway.

But it is not working for some.

Nine emails from motorists have

been sent to the New Zealand Transport

Agency in the

past four months

over the on-ramp.

The problem

stems from motorists

coming from

the direction of

Prebbleton turning

right at the Springs

Geoff Griffiths

Rd roundabout in

the right-hand lane.

As they approach

the on-ramp they have to cross into a

left lane in order to get onto the motorway

to the city.

Those motorists needing to do so

only have 200m to cross into the left

lane which carries traffic from Halswell

Junction Rd and left-turning vehicles

from the Sockburn side of Springs Rd.

If the left lane is busy, traffic in

the right lane can’t get across to the

on-ramp and are either forced to take

the stretch of road to Halswell, or cut

across other vehicles.

NZTA principal project manager

Geoff Griffiths conceded there was an

issue. •Turn to page 6

• Editorial, page 2

DANGER: Getting on to the motorway from Springs Rd means a quick jump to the left lane, potentially cutting off

other drivers.

I’VE PUT the on-ramp (see

page 1) to the test over the

past several days.

My conclusion – it’s a

problem.

About 11.20am on Sunday,

I came off the Halswell

Junction Rd bridge from

Prebbleton, turned right and

then had to get across into

the left lane to get onto the

motorway.

The driver of a van in front

realised almost too late she

needed to get into the left

lane also to access the onramp.

She pulled hard to the

left, causing me to put on

the anchors, which in turn

impacted the vehicle behind

me.

We got through unscathed

– just.

A similar thing happened

last week when I put the onramp

to the test in weekday

7.30am traffic.

The design is a lemon.

A DRIVER lost control of

a vehicle colliding with two

parked cars and the side of a

house in Rolleston on Sunday

morning.

Senior Sergeant Dean Harker

said they were alerted to the

incident on Feather Pl in the

Falcons Landing subdivision at

about 2am.

“The vehicle has failed to take

a corner. It has crashed into two

vehicles that were parked in the

driveway of a property and has

pushed one of those vehicles in

through the garage.”

People were inside the house

at the time of the crash. They declined

to speak with the Selwyn

Times when asked.

Harker said the three occupants

of the vehicle fled after

the crash and the two passengers

were tracked and located by

police dogs.

The 23-year-old male driver is

helping police with their inquiries,

Harker said.

“The partner of the driver

contacted police in Christchurch

who went around to their address

a couple of hours after the

accident.”

Harker said the occupants

of the vehicle are not from the

district.

Big ticket projects in district

A number of major projects in the district are

set to open next year. Devon Bolger explains

what you can expect and what each facility

will provide for the district

Foster Park indoor

courts complex

Netball games, gymnastics

competitions and floorball are

just some of the activities that

could be held at the new indoor

courts complex.

It is expected to be open to

the public in late April and will

add eight to 10 new jobs to the

district.

The budget for the project is

$22.2 million. Apollo Projects is

the contractor.

Facility manager Dave Tippett

said expressions of interest are

being sought from sports and

other groups wanting to use the

space.

“Netball is one of the first

sports that we did speak to and I

think they’re keen to keep their

Saturday netball at Lincoln but

they are potentially going to be

moving some masters and social

netball to Rolleston.

“I’ve also been speaking with

gymnastics groups but from a

competition perspective, and

basketball as well.”

The line-markings at the facility

are for netball, basketball,

volleyball, badminton, indoor

tennis, floorball, korfball and

futsal.

“We’ve got some really good

amounts of flexibility. All year

round we can host competitive

and social sport and recreation,”

said Tippett.

“It will open up a whole new

world of sport and physical

activity and recreation.”

The indoor court facility

includes eight courts, along with

a 240m indoor walking track

on the mezzanine level and will

serve sports teams from across

the district.

This includes four competition

standard courts capable of

hosting local and regional

competitions and four covered

courts for sports such as netball,

tennis, basketball and futsal.

It will also function as a flexible

markets and exhibitions.

Wastewater

project

CONSTRUCTION on a

“With this roundabout,

there is a relatively short

distance for drivers to

move across lanes to get to

the on-ramp,” he said.

“Once the southbound

motorway lanes are open,

and when traffic gets used

to the layout, the situation

should ease to some

extent.”

One of the frequently

asked questions on the

NZTA website is: “Why is

there a wait at the Springs

Rd roundabout and to access

the motorway on-ramp?”

Following final utility

works in the area, permanent

signage will be

installed which will further

help drivers with the correct

lane, Griffths said.

He also said an alternative

route from Prebbleton

to get on to the motorway

is available, but it is 2km

further than using the onramp.

He suggests turning

left from Springs Rd onto

Marshs Rd and accessing

the motorway on-ramp at

Shands Rd. The Shands Rd

on-ramp has traffic lights,

making it easier to access

the motorway, he said.

Construction of stage

two of the Southern Motorway

“Once all four lanes of

Drink driving: By the numbers

• By Devon Bolger

NEARLY TWICE as many

drink drivers have been caught

in Rolleston than any other

township in the district.

A total of 137 people recorded

excess breath or blood alcohol

levels in Rolleston, data released

to the Selwyn Times shows.

Lincoln had the second-highest

number with 77 motorists

caught.

There were 67 people in

Rolleston who recorded a breath

alcohol level over 400mcg/L.

That compares to 53 in

Lincoln, 33 in Leeston, 19 in

Darfield and two in Arthur’s

Pass.

The legal limit is 250mcg/L,

if you record between that and

400mcg you will receive a $200

fine.

If you record more than

400mcg/L you could be jailed for

up to three months, fined up to

$4500 and will automatically be

disqualified from driving for at

least six months.

The legal blood alcohol limit is

50mg.

Senior Sergeant Dean Harker

said he thinks the higher

numbers in Rolleston are due

to a larger population and

could possibly be due to people

commuting from the city.

CHECKPOINT: Statistics have revealed how many people

were charged with drink driving across the district between

2017 and 2019. ​

“It is a real

concern for

us. We have

been pushing

for a long, long

time to try

and spread the

message about

drink driving.”

Dean Harker

Harker said

memorable call-outs for police in

the district include apprehending

drunk drivers that were stopped

in the middle of the road,

slumped over the steering wheel

and covered in vomit.

“Another time, a driver was

weaving all over the road and

followed home by a member of

the public, when spoken to by

police they didn’t know where

they were.”

Last week Selwyn Times

reported police have seen an

increase in drink driving in the

district over the last month.

People caught with

excess alcohol levels

over the last three

years:

Rolleston: 137

Lincoln: 77

Leeston: 59

Darfield: 34

Arthur’s Pass: 5

Selwyn total: 312

It follows a motorist in their

early 30s being caught three

times the legal alcohol limit a

fortnight ago.

The man was found slumped

over his steering wheel on

Springston-Rolleston Rd.

Harker said the driver, who

lives in the district, refused to

get out of the vehicle when police

arrived.

He was taken to the Rolleston

Police Station where he recorded

a reading of 1050mcg/L.

The motorist was one of six

people caught drink driving in

the district over one weekend.

About 80 per cent of the offenders

recorded readings over

1000mcg/L, Harker said.

Harker said the man would

not tell police if he had been

drinking at an establishment

before driving but he had been

drinking in his car.

• By Devon Bolger

THE FIGHT to improve road

safety in West Melton has taken

another step forward with a

speed limit reduction from next

month.

The speed limit on State

Highway 73 through the

township will be reduced from

70km/h to 60km/h on Monday,

October 12.

It follows a speed review that

drew in 101 submissions, most

of which supported the change.

The West Melton Residents

Association has been fighting to

improve safety on the road, as

well as at the SH73 and Weedons

Ross Rd intersection, for 10

years.

Chairman Tim Schurr

said the speed change will

make it safer for pedestrians

and cyclists crossing between

the north and south sides of the

township.

“We fully support this change,

allowing for more calm transit

of vehicles through this busy

corridor and particularly the

intersection with Weedons Ross

Rd,” he said.

“The change will make for

safer passage of vehicles turning

into and crossing the highway as

well as pedestrians and cyclists.”

Said New Zealand Transport

Agency director regional

relationships Jim Harland:

“Some of the community have

been asking for speed reductions

through West Melton for some

time.

“There has been significant

development in the area, both

residential subdivisions and

60km/h from October 12.

commercial sites, which has

resulted in more pedestrian and

cycling activity as well as an

increase in traffic numbers.”

Hartland said there was a clear

theme throughout submissions

highlighting the importance the

community places on pedestrian

and cyclist safety.

“Community members also

felt strongly that the layout of

the SH73/Weedons Ross Rd

intersection was an issue and

many suggested installing a

roundabout or traffic lights to

help with traffic flow and the

safety of all users.”

As part of the upgrade

programme, the installation of

traffic signals at the intersection

is expected to begin early next

year.

Rotary project

to support

Pacific kids

THE LINCOLN Rotary Club’s

major international project for

this year is to push for donations

to help immunise 100,000

children in the Pacific.

The work is a part of a wider

project run by rotary worldwide

which will see children across

nine pacific islands receive immunisations.

Club member Farhad Dastgheib

said: “Even though it’s a larger

project, it won’t go ahead until

some of the local clubs commit

to it.”

UNICEF and the Asian

Development Bank have put their

support behind the project.

Rotary will help introduce three

life-saving vaccines in the Cook

Islands, Kiribati, Nauru, Niue,

Samoa, Tokelau, Tonga, Tuvalu

and Vanuatu.

These vaccines will help

prevent cervical cancer, deadly

diarrhoea, pneumonia, blood

infections (such as sepsis) and

meningitis.

More money is needed to be

fundraised through the community.

It costs $45 to immunise a child

with the three above vaccines.

THE 2020 GENERAL ELECTION

AND REFERENDUMS

TERRACE Downs golf resort

has sold under the hammer

for $6.6 million following the

death of its former owner from

Covid-19.

The sale covers the 250 hectare

golf course and clubhouse. The

villas are privately owned.

Competition at the CBRE

auction for the course was high,

with the property attracting

strong interest from buyers.

The course was put on the

market after the death of multimillionaire

Japanese investor

Hiroshi Hasegawa, who purchased

it in 2012 after approval

from the Overseas Investment

Office.

Hasegawa was 59 when he

died in April. He had turned the

resort into a globally recognised

luxury golf and adventure

destination.

CBRE

Auckland capital

markets senior

director, Warren

Hutt (right), who

marketed the

property, said it

was bought by a

private investor from Auckland.

“They do plan on keeping it

as a golf course, I don’t know

their exact plans yet. It is a good

result for Terrace Downs going

forward.”

Hutt said they are very happy

with how the auction went.

“We had significant interest,

over 200 inquiries on the property,

which is a phenomenal result.

“There were 13 registered bidders

and that was from around

the country, including local

Christchurch investors.”

Trust has been supporting youth

workers at the school since 2008

Trust member Diane Williams

said the event, planned for November,

of SWYT. As well as supporting

24-7 YouthWork,” she said.

“Not everyone has someone

they can talk to, someone who gets

them where they are at, that won’t

judge them but listen and be good

role models. There are so many

issues facing our youth today.”

The event is a self-guided tour

of local gardens, All of which are

within Lincoln, Broadfields and

Greenpark.

• The garden tour will

be held on November 7.

Adventure-bound for charity

MARIJKE ETWELL is on

a mission to raise $4000 for

Bowel Cancer New Zealand.

The Rolleston resident is getting

creative with the way she

plans on fundraising.

She secured herself a spot

with Inspired Adventures, an

adventure-based fundraising

agency that partners with

non-profit companies to create

charitable challenges around

the world.

Etwell’s first adventure will be

a 100km hike through the hills

of Tuscany, Italy, in April next

year.

“I am feeling very excited

about the trip but at the same

time, I will understand if it

doesn’t go ahead because of

Covid-19. The main thing is

to raise the money for Bowel

Cancer NZ,” she said.

Due to the global impact of

Covid-19, many of the organisations

fundraising events have

been postponed or cancelled,

Etwell said.

“The impact of this will be felt

for a long time yet and will push

Bowel Cancer NZ to their absolute

limit in regards to helping

families in need.

“Currently, they are

projecting more than a 30 per

cent downturn in their revenue

so far, which equates to about

Teacher Kendra Horne said

the production is an amazing

experience which gives pupils an

like this are a great

way to show all their different

superpowers and express themselves,”

she said.

“The students are very excited

and feeling positive. Performing

proudly comes naturally for many

of our students, they will definitely

thrive on stage.

“For those who are feeling a

little bit nervous, we have fabulous

staff supporting them and

encouraging them to do as much

as they are comfortable doing.”

If level 2 restrictions are still

in place by the performance

NEWS 15

A CUSTOM-MADE buoy is

being used to monitor the health

of one of the district’s highcountry

lakes.

The complex device floating in

Lake Pearson contains a range

of sensors that are constantly

transmitting different types of

data about the water.

The final recorders were

installed earlier this month

meaning the monitoring station

became fully operational.

A team of Environment

Canterbury scientists and

technicians, with help from the

Harbourmaster’s Office and Fish

and Game, anchored the device

in the northern half of the lake.

Powered by a solar panel, the

buoy senses and records water

quality and meteorological data,

which it transmits by radio to a

small tower installed at the lake

edge.

This tower, in turn, sends the

data, together with lake level

information, out to the experts

using satellites.

An ECan spokesman said

Lake Pearson was chosen as it

faces many of the same stresses

as other lakes in Canterbury.

A pilot study over the past two

years discovered oxygen loss

deep in the lake over summer,

which may have been linked to

fish deaths in the past.

The water quality in Canterbury’s

high-country lakes is

tested seasonally with samples

collected by helicopter and then

analysed.

But to get a fuller picture of

what’s happening below the

surface, continuous water quality

recording at different depths

is necessary.

“The Lake Pearson monitoring

station is now providing that

picture. It measures dissolved

oxygen, turbidity, algal biomass

and conductivity at two metres

depth,” said the spokesman.

ECan plans to install a similar

buoy in Lake Benmore next

year.

Device to monitor health of lake

INNOVATIVE: The buoy in Lake Pearson will help scientists

monitor the health of the lake. ​

Reader Brian Hooper

responds to last week’s

article about rules around

cats being kept out of a

new animal control bylaw

We would like there to be an

animal control bylaw around the

control of feral cats in built-up

areas whereby homeowners have

some way of ridding their housing

area of feral cats rather than

a local resident taken them in,

feeding them and allowing them

to procreate which results in feral

cats entering homes, spraying

doorways and furniture and

defecating on carpets.

We realise that microchipping

and desexing feral cats is very

expensive and feel that householders

should have a resource

other than the SPCA or the Cat

Protection League to go to for

assistance.

on the issues affecting life

It was another successful planting day for the Te Ara Kakariki Trust on Sunday.

Volunteers, such as district councillor Sophie McIness with her children Jack and Chloe,

were co-ordinated across three sites in Springfield, planting a total of 2800 native trees.

One of the planting locations was the old pit at the corner of Tramway Rd and Tawera

Lane which is being turned into a recreation reserve. Another site was a private property

where the owners are building a new home and have a commitment to include

extensive native plantings on their property.

An anchor place

for everyone

Anchoring the new Rolleston town centre, the Te Ara Ātea building is shaping to be a place for

everyone in Selwyn to celebrate the district’s identity and people.

The 2,200 square metre, two-storey building, which will be finished in late 2021 will house the

new Rolleston library, along with the district’s “living room”, performances spaces, and even a

treasure box.

“Everyone will be able to find their cosy corner, or an experience they will enjoy,” District Arts

Culture and Lifelong Learning Coordinator Mat Logan says. “It’s not just a library, it’s a museum

and heritage experience and an arts space. You might be walking down the end of a set of

shelves and there will be a display case or a story or an exhibition.”

The name Te Ara Ātea, was gifted by Te Taumutu Rūnanga and means the unobstructed trail

reflecting the trails tangata whenua made across the plains, the name also references the

building metaphorically as a place for learning and growth for people Project Manager Joanne

Nikolaou says.

Through the project the Council has worked with the rūnanga to weave the cultural identity of the

district through the building and reflect its role as a place for learning, connecting, exploring and

celebrating the district’s identity and people.

The downstairs is designed as a more active space with performance and exhibition areas, a

workshop room and tamariki area with interactive resources and doors to the children’s area of

the town square. But it also features a community space for people to meet and spend time.

“It’s been designed like someone’s living room with sofas and a fireplace, we want people to feel

like it’s their living room,” Joanne says.

Upstairs will be the majority of the library space, with exhibitions and displays integrated

throughout. It will also feature waka huia, literally meaning treasure box. A soundproofed room

with desks and computers and a museum-quality display wall on the outside that will display

taonga from Te Taumutu Rūnanga, allowing treasures of the district to come home.

Youth Council helping take the bite out of hunger

The Selwyn Youth Council has teamed up with the Malvern Hub (Two Rivers Community Trust) to help

take the bite out of hunger in our community.

The groups have organised a food drive to help replenish low stock at the Darfield Foodbank, and will

be collecting donations on Friday 2 October, 11am–1pm, at Darfield Library.

Darfield Foodbank spokesperson Rose Craven says there has

been a large increase in demand at the foodbank this year as

people have lost jobs or had their hours cut from the impacts of

Covid-19. The foodbank is now running around $600 per week

short of items, she says.

“While we have a good stock of canned food, we are desperately

short of things like school lunch food, dry baking goods, frozen

meat and veges and toiletries. If you are wondering what to donate

have a think about what you and your family would need in a week.”

The Youth Council has been involved in a series of volunteering

efforts in recent weeks and was looking for a way to support

the foodbank during the school holidays, Youth Councillor Issy

Kennedy says.

"I believe as a youth councillor, helping in any way in our

communities that we can is really important, especially when some

of us are going through such a hard time because of Covid-19. It

can make such a difference in someone's life even when it may

seem very small to us."

Scholarships offer a chance to

do what you love

Help to do what you love is being offered to Selwyn school leavers.

Applications are open for the Council’s annual Tertiary Education

scholarships, supporting Selwyn young people who are leaving

school and heading into higher education or training.

Scholarships of up to $3000 provide payment towards fees, and

costs associated with buying books and equipment required for

their study or training.

Whetu Pikari says receiving the scholarship towards his study

this year in Engineering at Canterbury University was a huge help,

covering his costs for staying in the halls and freeing him up to

focus on what he loves.

A high achieving student with learning difficulties, he says the

scholarship has helped reduced some of the pressure and given him

more time to work towards his passions in clean energy solutions

and nanotechnology.

“It’s been pretty fantastic. I’m loving it. University is quite a change

in lifestyle, but with the scholarship I was less worried about money.

It’s one less stress and it allows you to be more focussed on what

you want to do.”

The scholarships are available for year 12 and 13 students who

live and study in Selwyn and are planning to undertake full-time

post-secondary school education or training at a recognised New

Zealand university, polytechnic or training institution next year.

Applications are open until the end of September for students who

have achieved outstanding success in academic, sports, cultural,

arts, social responsibility, or other areas, or have overcome barriers

or hardships to achieve.

To find out more about the scholarships, including application

forms, students can visit selwyn.govt.nz/tertiaryscholarships.

Community Directory launches

A new directory aims to help build awareness and connections for

the Selwyn community.

The Council’s new community directory has launched—providing a

searchable online directory of community groups in the district.

Over 300 groups and organisations ranging from sports clubs

and social services, to arts, crafts and music groups have already

signed up to the directory, where people can find groups they are

interested in, or what is available in their area.

The directory also has an events page where groups that are

registered with the directory can promote their own event. The

page was a response to a request from community groups for more

space to promote their individual event big or small and anywhere

across Selwyn, Council Group Manager Community Services and

Facilities Denise Kidd.

The Council will continue to help profile some events in addition

to their inclusion in the directory, but the directory provides a free

space for groups to do their own promotion directly to the public.

The aim of the directory is to support the groups and help build up

and strengthen the Selwyn community, Denise says.

“It’s important, especially for newcomers, as well as for any

resident. This directory is intended to connect people with others

with the same interests or let them see what’s in their area. It

is intended to also let people know which non-governmental

organisations’ (NGO’s) are delivering social, health or education

services and where to go for support. It’s a good way to meet others

and become part of the fabric of the community. Being connected

in the community is something that boosts people’s wellbeing

generally and also helps them to do well in times of adversity.”

People can visit the community directory or register their group at

Emergency Response Team offering opportunities

A chance to make a difference to people’s lives in emergencies is being offered by the Selwyn

Response Team.

The team, which responds on the front-line to Civil Defence emergencies, is recruiting for new members and

will be holding an information evening from 7pm on Wednesday 7 October at the Rolleston Council Offices.

Team members will talk about how they respond to Civil Defence emergencies such as earthquakes,

fires and floods and what’s involved in being a team member.

Volunteer Jordan Milner says he enjoys the opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives. The team

trains once a week, and offers further training courses, ready to respond where needed, he says, from

search and rescue and first aid, to whatever is required.

For Jordan that has meant manning cordons, helping people get to their houses during the 2019 Nelson

fires and at Hagley Community College after the mosque shootings, helping the Muslim community

have a safe space to grieve. He also helped during the Level 4 lockdown, taking supplies and helping

out people in two Selwyn campgrounds, delivering food to foodbanks and distributing flyers of key

support information.

“I helped some people move to motels who didn’t have anywhere to stay. It was quite rewarding. I took

an elderly man to a motel and then went out and did a big shop for him and dropped it off. He was so

moved. It was quite satisfying seeing people in a really tough spot and helping them through it.”

Stay safe out riding this spring and summer

Spring is here and it is great weather to be out riding horses – we’re reminding people to take care

while riding.

With more riders taking advantage of the great horse riding conditions here in Selwyn, the Council is

reminding riders to please avoid riding on the cycle ways between townships.

Not only can riding on the cycle ways be a danger to cyclists and pedestrians, but at times they can be

narrow, which also creates a high risk of injury to pedestrians, horses and riders should anything go wrong.

Keeping safe on our roads is all about recognising hazards and minimising risks. To manage risk, here is

a reminder of some of the safety rules to help keep you safe when riding on the road:

· Always wear a helmet while riding

· Wear bright coloured safety gear to increase your visibility to drivers

· Ride your horse on the left-hand side of the road, and as far left as possible

· Don’t ride on footpaths, cycle ways, private lawns or gardens.

Chris Barclay finds out how Covid-19 has impacted on Canterbury sports codes

Financial assistance available for rugby clubs

RUGBY CLUBS in Canterbury

battling due to Covid-19

restrictions can apply for

financial assistance as the global

pandemic threatens the future of

local sporting organisations.

The Canterbury Rugby

Football Union in conjunction

with the Mainland Foundation,

has created the 2020 Club

Covid-19 relief fund, which has

$150,000 to distribute among

clubs in the Metro, Ellesmere

Clubs will be

The grant

amount can only be used

for amateur aspects at a club

maintenance, operational

expenses including phone

the funds are not used for

“The one thing that has

happened is Covid has taught

said Mainland Football chief

“The live streaming thing has

Big head for tiny wasp

BAEUS IS a full stop-sized

genera of parasitic wasp.

THese ‘micro-flea’ wasps are

parasitoids of spider eggs.

Although less than

1mm long, Baeus have

characteristically big heads,

big eyes and wingless females.

Females oviposit a single egg

into the wall of the spider egg

and the minute larva hatches,

consumes the contents of the

egg, and pupates within the

egg case before emerging as an

adult.

Only 25 species known

worldwide, of which five

species are known in New

Zealand, with two of these

species being shared with

Australia (Baeus leai and

Baeus saliens).

Baeus are most often found

in leaf litter, soil or bark

associated with spider species

that attach their egg sacs to

vegetation.

THese include orb-weaver,

Swan plants and monarch butterflies

• By Henri Ham

I REMEMBER as a child

being fascinated with monarch

butterflies.

Spotting those brightly-striped

caterpillars chomping through

our swan plants, and then

magically evolve into monarch

butterflies, seemed to consume a

lot of our time.

While monarch butterflies are

around all year long, January is

peak monarch season. If you’re

wanting to entice monarchs to

your garden this summer, you

need to be thinking about planting

swan plants now.

Once you’ve got your seedlings,

plant them around 70cm

apart, as swan plants can grow

up to 2m high, and really bush

out. Plant in well-drained soil,

that gets lots of sun. They’ll also

benefit from some shelter as they

won’t cope well in strong winds.

If they are in an exposed spot, I

recommend staking your plants,

or tying to a fence.

Once established, swan plants

produce impressive puffy seed

pods, said to resemble – you

guessed it – swans. These pods,

around the size of a gold ball, are

what you’d collect if you’re wanting

to harvest the seeds and have

go growing your own next year.

Or letting the pods naturally

burst will result in your own wild

garden of swan seedlings.

Once they are established,

swan plants are very low maintenance.

Avoid any sprays or

fertilisers on the leaves, as these

can harm to caterpillars.

Similarly, if you are buying

established plants, and you’ve got

caterpillars ready to be transferred

on, you’ll need to hold off

for 10 days.

This is because any residual

spray needs to disappear before

putting any caterpillars on a

swan plant, as it can harm the

caterpillars. Then to be sure, test

the plant with one caterpillar

first.

Growing swan plants can be

bitter-sweet. While it’s exciting

when you find your plant

covered with caterpillars, you’ve

got to have enough leaves to feed

them all.

Caterpillars can literally eat

themselves out of house and

home. If you get to this stage,

you can move caterpillars onto

FOOD SOURCE:

Brightly-striped

other swan plants, for more food.

But initially picking off excess

eggs can help this from occurring.

If you’re finding you’ve got the

opposite problem of no caterpillars,

wasps could be the problem.

To keep the wasps away, cover

your swan plant with a mesh net.

The butterflies will still be able to

lay their eggs on the leaves that

are touching the mesh.

If you’ve been left with a

baron-leaved plant, simply

leave it to regrow more leaves.

Swan plans can also last up to

two years, so come early winter,

give your plant a good prune

back in preparation for next

summer.

It’s also worth knowing that

swan plants can be toxic if

ingested. So (especially if you’re

handling the caterpillars) think

about wearing gloves or giving

your hands an extra deep wash

after your gardening session.

with Generation Homes Christchurch

contracted to build The Pavilion.

Generation Homes Christchurch has

already completed 28, of the 78 planned,

two and three bedroom villas and

duplexes at Woodcroft Estate. Once the

village is completely built, Generation

Homes Christchurch will continue their

relationship with Woodcroft Estate, taking

responsibility for the unit’s general upkeep

and maintenance.

“Generation Homes has been

great to work with. We’ve had good

communication and their workmanship is

excellent. They also guarantee their build

times,” says Adam Yates, CEO of Karaka

Pines Villages.

This positive working relationship

is reiterated by Evan Beker, Joint

Venture Partner of Generation Homes

Christchurch.

“We’ve enjoyed partnering with Karaka

Pines Villages, who have considerable

expertise in developing and managing

lifestyle villages. It’s a great working

relationship between all parties involved,

including trades and suppliers. We’re

particularly excited to have completed The

Pavilion. It’s an amazing addition at a time

when connecting with others isn’t easy yet

more important than ever. It will bring

people together,” says Evan.

Woodcroft Estate offers its residents

independence and flexibility along with

the advantage of owning and managing

their village. The villas and duplexes

are larger and more spacious than is

usually seen in such villages. They are

maintenance-free and residents live in a

safe and supportive environment.

“We have six villages throughout the

country under the Karaka Pines banner.

Adam Yates & Evan Beker.

All offer residents the financial benefit

of keeping the capital gain of their unit,”

explains Adam.

At Woodcroft Estate, people have a

choice of five different unit designs,

priced from $420,000 for a standard two

bedroom, 116sqm duplex with a single

garage. Larger standalone villas starting

at 173sqm are priced from $560,000. The

final cost depends on chosen specifications

and features. Ownership is Licence to

Occupy with the benefit of the full capital

value/gain being passed onto the owner

when a unit is sold.

Irrigation vital in hot

dry weather

Now the hot days of summer are on their way,

Canterbury home owners will be wanting to make

full use of their outdoor areas to entertain family

and friends, so having lawns and gardens in tip-top

condition will be a priority.

Phil Hudson of Freeman Irrigation advises that

now is the best time to have maintenance work done

on irrigation systems so they are in good working

order to meet summer demand. This will also prevent

the inconvenience and additional costs of having

landscaping repaired if problems are discovered and

need fixing during summer.

“Some irrigation system problems are easily

fixed, but they have to be identified to be repaired,”

Phil says, “so now is the ideal time to book in for

maintenance and servicing.”

The most important part of keeping an irrigation

system in good working order is having regular

maintenance done on the sprays, rotors and solenoid

valves, he says.

Some of the basic problems include clogged

sprinklers; leaking sprinklers and valves; obstructed

sprinklers; leaking/blocked solenoid valves; overspray

onto footpaths, streets or buildings; design problems;

missing nozzles or pipe leaks and breaks.

Smart controls for irrigation systems are

convenient for home owners and many people have

been asking about them, says Phil.

“We have a range of smartphone controllers and

rain sensors that can be fitted to most systems,

allowing to have easy control from anywhere.

“If you want to save money and conserve water a

good rain sensor is an affordable solution. We can

supply and fit the Wireless Rain-Clik Sensor that

automatically shuts off your sprinkler system, so you

don’t have to worry if you are away from home if it

rains.”

The latest technology

also comes into play with

automated WiFi – the

sprinklers can be connected to

weather station forecasts so if

rain is expected the amount of

water is reduced.

Freeman Irrigation has a

range of irrigation services,

not just for residential homes

but also parks, golf courses,

horticultural and viticultural

properties, sub-divisions and

commercial properties.

Local expert can help

redesign your garden

Days spent at home during lockdown

has given home owners an opportunity

to look at their gardens and, with longer

days and warmer temperatures on the

horizon it is a good time to start planning

your new garden or revamping your

existing one.

Landscape designer Sharon Crofts

lives locally and says a good way to start

is with a consultation to discuss your

ideas. She will then design a concept and

planting schedule to create a garden that

iss unique to you and your lifestyle.

While many homeowners like to

plan their own gardens, calling on a

professional designer can be very helpful

as they often have design and planting

ideas or innovative landscape options the

home gardener hadn’t thought of, Sharon

says.

At this time of year too, garden centres

and nurseries are well stocked with new

plants and shrubs ready for planting in

all areas of the garden and having your

personalised landscape plan takes away

the confusion over which plants go

where.

Homeowners have the option of

implementing the plan themselves. If

not Sharon Crofts Landscape Design has

a team of experienced and professional

contractors who will complete the

work to exacting standards and who

work throughout Canterbury including

residential properties, rural and lifestyle

blocks and new subdivisions, particularly

in the Selwyn area.

Having your paving or decking areas

professional designed and executed will

give the landscaping that professional

edge which, in turn, will add value to the

property.

Sharon enjoys working collaboratively

with her clients and transforming initial

plans into reality within budget and on

time. Her many years of experience also

help when it comes to what planting

works in the Canterbury climate and with

local soils.

is small or large give Sharon Crofts

Don’t forget the pantry

Spring cleaning can seem a

daunting task but breaking it down

into smaller jobs makes it easier

to achieve. The pantry can be a

complete mess in many kitchens

so take the opportunity to have a

clean out and it will be easier to

find what you need.

Firstly, empty your pantry

completely. Don’t bother wiping

down bottles and jars until you

have determined what to keep.

Thoroughly wipe your food storage

area with a non-toxic cleanser.

Pantry staples have notoriously

long shelf lives, but even dried

goods need to go eventually. First,

check all expiry dates on items that

have them — toss everything that

is expired. Second, evaluate if you

have used the item in the past six

months — or if you think you ever

will. Donate any unwanted items

with a reasonable expiry date to a

local food bank.

Once opened, oils will generally

last from four to six months. If you

are unsure of the date you opened

your oil, always taste and smell it

before using it. Specialty oils such

as sesame, truffle or walnut should be

stored in your fridge, not your cupboard.

Pasta typically comes with a best before

date, however, if you have stored it in a

secondary container, you may not be sure

how long you’ve had it. Pasta can last up

to two years unopened, but once opened

and exposed to air, it will go stale.

White rice is magically resilient,

so chances are it is fine. Brown rice,

however, has a layer of bran that contains

oil and has a maximum shelf life of three

to six months.

All-purpose flour stored in a dry, clean,

cool area will last for one year. Whole

wheat flour has a slightly shorter shelf

life (again due to the bran layer) of nine

Our Services

months.

Dried spices and herbs can lose

their flavour over time although

their shelf life is up to two years.

Replace them if you think you are

losing some of the flavour.

While there isn’t a defined time

for baking powder or soda to go

stale, once opened they begin to

absorb moisture and lose their

impact. To test your baking

powder, mix 1 tsp with 1/2 cup

hot water. If the mixture bubble

immediately, it is still active. For

baking soda mix 1/4 tsp with

2 tsp vinegar — if it bubbles

immediately, keep it.

When it comes to restocking

your pantry here are four quick

tips:

• Wipe down all bottles and jars

with your vinegar water solution.

• Use empty mason jars to store

bagged spices or dried goods. They

are easier to stack and seal well,

preventing moisture absorption.

• Keep the items you cook

with every day front and centre.

Organise the remaining items by

grouping similar things together.

• Keep a permanent marker near

your pantry. Date everything when it is

opened.

Now enjoy being able to find

everything you need and want….

Family wagon with performance

MERCEDES-BENZ is certainly

covering all bases in the sport

utility vehicle market.

Its product line-up is extensive

and it’s still growing. The

company has just launched a

brand new range of SUVs – the

GLB series.

There are three variants in the

line-up – 200, 250 and 35, all

turbocharged. Put simply the

designations represent a 1.3-litre

variant at 120kW, and two 2-litre

variants at 165kW and 225kW

respectively, the latter essentially

utilise the same power plant but

with greater boost for the 35.

This evaluation surrounds the

250, it is priced at $92,900, the

200 and 35 list at $78,900 and

$104,900 respectively. These

prices are relatively familyfriendly;

sure it’s out of the

mainstream, but if you want

an SUV and are interested in

a premium brand, the GLB is

competitive.

The GLB series is very

traditional in its design, it’s a

seven-seater, albeit compact,

and it carries four-wheel-drive

mechanicals, well at least it does

in 250 and 35 form, the entrylevel

model is front-wheel-drive

only.

Powering the GLB are the

engines which have filtered

through other Mercedes-Benz

product. I’ve experienced the

250 engine many times before

and I have always commented

on its smooth, quiet operation;

it needs to be, there are a raft

of other four-cylinder, 2-litre

turbocharged engines on the

market and they are all refined,

the GLB’s unit is up to par and

lacks nothing, even in low power

form.

The 250 is also rated with

350Nm of torque, which is an

impressive and useful figure,

but if you are interested in more

bottom end grunt the 35 pumps

out an extra 50Nm.

I’d be comfortable with the

250, it’s no slouch when it comes

to performance, Mercedes-Benz

claims a 6.9sec run to 100km/h

and through the mid-range

it fairly hunts through an

overtaking manoeuvre taking just

4.7sec to make 120km/h from

80km/h.

These are good times for a

chunky SUV, the GLB weighs in

at 1721kg, so it’s no lightweight,

which reinforces how versatile

and honest the engine is, and if

you listen carefully you can just

pick that something exciting sits

under the bonnet, there’s a wellmuffled

exhaust throb when the

engine is under load.

The engine is also the fuelmiser

that modern turbocharging

on an extensive range of wagons from the company.

techniques provide us with.

A combined cycle average of

7.7-litres per 100km is claimed.

During my time in the test car the

fuel usage readout was constantly

listing around 8.6l/100km with

an instantaneous readout of

6l/100km recorded at 100km/h in

eighth gear.

On the subject of fuel usage,

I must mention the display

graphics make saving fuel easy,

the fonts and colours are easy

to read and understand, and

their constant presence reminds

the driver to take it easy on the

throttle.

That’s part of a comprehensive

display graphic structure, a

wide panel stretches across the

dash area and it contains much

depth in terms of functionality

and detail. There’s also the

voice command system that

is being incorporated into all

Mercedes-Benz product. Say

“Hey Mercedes’’ and with further

prompts many of the operating

systems will be adjusted at your

beck and call.

On the road the GLB rides

beautifully, it doesn’t get air

suspension, but such is the

quality of the underpinnings I

had to keep constantly reminding

myself of that.

The spring and damper rates

are set for a glorious ride, bump

and ruts are smoothed out,

• Price – Mercedes-Benz

GLB250, $92,900

• Dimensions – Length,

4634mm; width, 1834mm;

height, 1658mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

1991cc, 165kW, 350Nm,

eight-speed automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 6.9sec

• Fuel usage – 7.7l/100km

while absorption through the

suspension provides a smooth,

controlled in-cabin ride.

Interestingly, the front seats have

quite firm squabs, it’s like you

are sitting on them and not in

them, which is a surprise and not

something I’ve noticed before

in Mercedes-Benz product.

Nevertheless, you quickly become

used to it and it’s far from a

problem.

I took the test car west through

the Malvern Hills, one of my

favourite high country roads,

returning to the city via Hororata

and Burnham. The GLB is a

fabulous highway cruiser, it is

superbly quiet and, as mentioned,

the suspension affords a ride that

doesn’t tax the driver on a long

journey.

Riding on sport specification

Bridgestone (235/40 x 20in)

tyres, steering feel is decisive

and with power channelled to all

four corners there’s a feeling of

stability and surety inside that is

only associated with all-wheeldrive.

As is traditional fare, the

GLB gets several dynamic drive

modes, I didn’t use either of the

sport modes other than just for

exploratory purposes, the

engine is feisty enough in

normal mode and is easily a

match for the role of a mid-size

SUV, and in true luxury car

fashion the entire driveline reeks

of refinement.

The GLB is also incredibly

well appointed, there’s nothing

you’d want for, and if you take

into account Mercedes-Benz’s

extensive list of options and

extras, then it can be tailormade

to suit each and every individual’s

requirements.

I can’t imagine that

Mercedes-Benz will be

developing another SUV any time

soon; however, I suspect another

couple of models will be added to

the GLB series as time goes on.

Mercedes-Benz is in a good

situation, SUV sales are showing

no signs of slowing, and even

though the market is tough due

to the coronavirus pandemic,

buyers are still looking for the

complete family wagon.

The GLB goes a long way to

address that.

From family cars to work trucks and

supercars to fixer-uppers.

No matter what you're looking for, you

can find it all with Drivesouth.

Canterbury Regional Council electors have the right to demand a poll on the

electoral system to be used at the next two triennial general elections

(2022 and 2025) for the Canterbury Regional Council.

The choice is between the First Past the Post (FPP) and the Single Transferable

Canterbury Regional Council will continue to use the FPP electoral system.

A valid demand for a poll must be:

• Made in writing.

Regional Council. This will require a minimum of 20,356 elector

signatures.

• Delivered to the Canterbury Regional Council office, 200 Tuam St,

Christchurch by 5pm Monday, 22 February 2021.

If a valid demand for a poll is received after 22 February 2021 a poll will be

held after 21 May 2021 with the outcome applicable to the 2025 and 2028

triennial elections.

Every elector who signs a demand must also set out in it his or her full name

and the address for which he or she is qualified as an elector of the Canterbury

Renee Murray, NZME Event Director, says

“It’s been incredible seeing our communities

coming together to support local. We are so

pleased to be able to hold events that

provide an opportunity to kiwi businesses and local Christchurch companies

to connect with thousands of women. It's a great chance for the people of

Christchurch to attend the show and support local businesses after what has been

a deeply challenging time for many.”

The show features artisan crafters exhibiting alongside national brands like Lorna

Jane Activewear, Caci Clinic, Les Mills and Suzuki. It’s great to see all the various

women visit the show, from teenagers and young women, to mothers and

grandmothers, and friends simply enjoying each other’s company.

Checklist for selling your home

MAKE SMALL FIXES

Inspect your home with a buyer’s

eyes, and correct the flaws that are

most egregious (if affordable) or

can be relatively easily fixed—from

repairing cracks in the walkways

to repainting dingy walls or oiling

creaky hinges.

SET A PRICE

A real estate agent will give you a

market analysis free of charge or

commitment. Ask a few to get a

broader picture of the market, then

ask to see listings for properties

similar to yours that have sold

in the past six months. Check

out comparable listings yourself

in the real estate section of your

newspaper or on websites. Then

decide whether you want a quick,

easy sale or the highest possible

price.

CLEAN & DECLUTTER

Weed out excess furniture,

knicknacks, and “stuff ”—toss it,

donate it, give it away, sell it at a

yard sale, or put it into storage—so

the house seems more spacious and

buyers can imagine themselves in it.

STAY VIGILIANT ABOUT

MAINTENANCE

From the moment you start

showing your house, keep the lawn

mowed, shrubs trimmed, gardens

weeded, rooms spotless and

clutter-free.

READY YOUR HOME FOR

OPEN DAYS

Hide pocketable valuables,

display fresh flowers or bowls

of fruit, bake a batch of cookies

for the homey smell, open the

drapes, keep pets out of sight.

DECIDE WHETHER TO DO

YOUR OWN BUILDING

INSPECTION

It may save you time,

especially with older homes,

to identify—and potentially

solve—problems your buyer’s

inspection will discover later.

NEW LISTING

Dressing your property up for sale

Your house is on the market and you hope to get a good price.

While market performance will largely influence this, presenting

your home at its best will help.

First impressions count from the moment

potential buyers view a property from the

street to the moment they walk through the

front door.

Weed the garden, cut back unruly shrubs and

prune trees where needed. Kill off weeds in the

lawn, sprinkle grass seed over bald patches and

fertilise the lawn.

Indoors, tidy up. Get rid of excess or bulky

furniture, toys, books, hobby items or fitness

equipment and if too many photos on the wall

pack these away so the home looks roomy.

If there is a gap or a room needs enhancing,

look at what you have. A piece of furniture

might be painted up or an old leather bound

book popped on the coffee table. Shelves

will also add depth to a narrow space while

mirrors may give the illusion of a larger space.

In entryways, add an easy chair, small table,

bookcase or large vase.

Awkward spaces such as coved ceilings in

attics or upstairs rooms might be converted

into storage shelving and the room given

a purpose as an office, playroom or extra

bedroom so viewers can see how the room

might be used.

Stow possessions neatly in containers,

shelving or tidily in cupboards; highlighting

the storage potential within the home, ensuring

it is clean and tidy for viewing at any time.

Move the pets outside as not all buyers

will be pet lovers while some may suffer pet

allergies putting them off a house if they see a

pet inside.

If parts of the house look tired, consider

renovating by painting walls, replacing worn

carpet, or modernising the kitchen, bathroom

and toilet; rooms that should sparkle. Replace

tired cabinetry, or the benches and cupboard/

drawer fronts then update old toilets, showers

or kitchen appliances. Modernising these

rooms can lift the final selling price.

Use consistent and light paint colours

throughout for balance and seamlessness,

making the house appear more spacious. An

effect that is increased when walls and curtains

share the same or a similar colour.

Consider the personality and purpose of a

room. Bright colours lift living areas especially

if large and open. However, bedrooms are

suited to calmer softer colours with just a

touch of bold. Layer bedding or use throws for

effect along with cushions or a stuffed toy in a

children’s room.

With curtaining, smaller patterns or plain

fabrics are the rule for smaller rooms whereas

larger patterns make spacious areas cosier. If

blinds or drapes are past their best, replace

these even if it is only with neutral cotton

curtains. The effect will be worth it.

Eco-friendly features will also add value for

some buyers though not universally, however

earthy natural colours and features are popular.

Consider who your target buyers are likely to be

and what will appeal to them.

Key reasons

to buy new

Buying new has many advantages. No one has

yet lived in your brand new home and it has that

new home smell and feel.

That doesn’t appeal to the villa crowd.

But many people dream of a home in a

new suburb.

There are many other advantages -- such

as being able to customise the home before

it’s built. Buyers love it that their build

guarantee covers most things and there’s

little maintenance to do for the first 10

years.

There are a long list of reasons some

people dream of buying new.

They include:

• Current Building Code requirements

specify a higher standard of insulation

and glazing than you can expect in an

older home, which makes your new home

warmer in winter and cooler in summer,

meaning cheaper to run. In addition there

has been a vast improvement in the quality

and technology of construction materials

over the last decade.

• New homes are designed for modern

lifestyles with walk-in wardrobes, double

or triple car garaging, en suites and heat

pumps.

• Internal access garaging.

• Indoor-outdoor flow. Home builders

before the 1970s rarely thought about this.

• Automatic pool covers and electric

curtains are included in a lot of new

homes, he says.

• In a new subdivision you’re not going

to have five cross-leased small homes next

door to your architecturally designed fivebedroom

dream home, he says.

• New purpose-built shopping and

service centres cater for the modern life.

• New schools can be popular. New

schools are being designed with “Modern

Learning Environments”, which are

considered better layouts for 21st-century

learning.

Another important factor is it’s easier

to get a mortgage. New Reserve Bank of

New Zealand loan to value (LVR) ratio

restrictions from October 1 don’t relate

to new homes. Likewise the KiwiSaver

HomeStart grant is doubled for first time

buyers.

When it comes to new apartment

buildings they’re built to a higher standard

of earthquake/fire proofing and, hopefully,

are no longer leaky.

There are, of course, disadvantages to

buying new. Not everyone wants to wait

six or 12 months to move into their home.

Other downsides include:

• Borrowing to cover the progress

payments is more complex than taking out

a mortgage on an existing property.

• Builders and developers can go broke,

leaving the buyer in an awkward position.

• With some new homes the buyer

effectively needs to become a project

manager.

• You have to deal with council for

building and sometimes resource consent.

• The location may be further from the

centre than you wanted.

• If it’s infill housing you might have a

cross lease situation that some people find

tricky.

• There are often teething problems with

a new build.

• You won’t get a quaint tree-lined street.

• Your section will most likely be smaller

than that of an existing home.

• Fences, paths and landscaping might

need to be added at a cost.
