Ambulance

services

merge

to boost

coverage

• By Matt Slaughter

AMBULANCE services in

Ellesmere, Rolleston and Darfield

have merged in a bid to give better

coverage to the district.

These three areas have combined

to create the St John Selwyn area

committee, which consists of

about 50 people, some of whom are

volunteers and some paid staff.

The merge will mean St John

staff based in Rolleston will now be

available to attend calls in Leeston,

Darfield and other parts of Selwyn

and Canterbury when volunteers

from these areas are unavailable.

Ambulances previously had to

travel from Christchurch to attend

calls in these areas when this happened.

Said chairwoman of the area

committee Ann Shepherd: “Rolleston

can cover Leeston and Darfield

if we don’t have any volunteers

working that day.

“You’re going to get a far better

service and far better outcome.”

The area committee will also be

available for calls from Prebbleton

all the way through to Waimakariri,

Rakaia and Arthur’s Pass.

ST JOHN has come up with

a common sense way to

better its coverage in parts of

the district (see page 1).

Volunteers and paid St

John staff are now part

of a group which covers

Ellesmere, Rolleston

and Darfield, meaning

volunteers and paid staff can

get to emergencies in each

other’s patch when things

get stretched.

Shepherd said ambulance

staff from the areas that

are merging attend about

150 callouts combined a

week. About 50 per cent

of these are medical calls

and the other half are

emergency events such as

car crashes.

But why all the secrecy

over when Lincoln will get

an ambulance that will be

based at the fire station (see

page 4)?

The public has the right to

know.

Supermarket consent declined

Wednesday October 28 2020 Selwyn Times

NEWS 3

In Brief

• By Matt Slaughter

MORE PEOPLE wanted a

Countdown in Lincoln than

those who opposed it.

But that hasn’t stopped an

independent commissioner

turning down a resource consent

to build a Countdown in the

Flemington estate on Birchs Rd.

Independent commissioner

David Caldwell said in his

decision: “I have found there

are adverse effects on the local

residents and

the wider

environment. I

do not consider

those effects

are properly

avoided,

remedied or

Shane

Kennedy

mitigated,”

The district

council

received 72

submissions in response to the

resource consent application

when it went out for public consultation.

Forty-seven supported the

development, twenty-three submissions

were in opposition and

two were neutral.

Flemington developer Shane

Kennedy, who applied for the

consent on behalf of Lincoln

Developments Ltd, said he is

disappointed it was declined

because he believes it is the only

suitable empty site for a new

supermarket in Lincoln.

He said it is much needed

to serve Lincoln’s growing

population, which is now at

about 7000, but would not say

if he will appeal the decision to

decline it.

“Of course it was disappointing,

and very disappointing

because the area needs another

supermarket and, unfortunately,

everyone’s struggling to find a

location for one,” Kennedy said.

Said a Countdown spokeswoman:

“We know there’s a lot

of support for a Countdown in

Lincoln so we’re obviously disappointed

by the decision.

“We’re currently reviewing

this to determine next steps and

are unlikely to comment further

at this stage while we work

through this.”

Kennedy said it is too early to

know what the site will be used

for other than a supermarket,

but it would be suitable for a

block of about 12 residential

houses.

Some Flemington residents

did not want the supermarket

because of its close proximity to

a residential subdivision.

Residents were worried about

potential noise and traffic issues

being created by the supermarket

and thought it would be an

eyesore.

Said Kennedy: “From a noise

point of view, I don’t think it’s

any different than any other

supermarket and I’ve never been

to a noisy one yet.”

He said affected residents’

concerns were considered

within the resource consent

application.

However, these concerns were

factors in Caldwell’s decision to

decline the resource consent.

The 3063m 2 supermarket was

proposed to be open from 7am

and 10pm seven days a week.

ANIMAL RULES

The consultation period for the

public to have their say on a

draft bylaw outlining the rules

for having animals (excluding

dogs) in the district ends on

November 6. The draft bylaw

aims to set standards for the

keeping of animals including

stock, poultry, bees and cats.

St John tight-lipped

on Lincoln service

• By Matt Slaughter

THERE IS uncertainty over

when an ambulance will start

serving the Lincoln area from the

town’s fire station.

Selwyn Times revealed in August

an ambulance will be based

at the Lincoln Fire Station and is

likely to be on-call between 10am

and 10pm.

But St John will still not say

when the ambulance service will

start.

“I have spoken to our district

operations manager regarding the

staging of an ambulance in Lincoln

and we have nothing to say on

this at the moment,” said St John

spokesman Gerard Campbell.

Lincoln’s chief fire officer

Jeremy Greenwood said: “I’m

still waiting on St John to come

Josh Bashford

& Fatu Feu’u

up with a bit of a plan on start

times.”

Greenwood and other staff

at the station were told about a

month ago the ambulance service

would start “within a month or

so,” he said.

Currently, there are St John

ambulances based at Rolleston

and Darfield.

Last year, the station in Rolleston

became staffed 24/7 meaning

it has one ambulance service operating

24 hours a day, seven days

a week and a second ambulance

on a 12-hour day shift from midmorning

to mid-evening.

Bid to boost response time

• From page 1

Shepherd said ambulance staff

from the areas that are merging

attended 2948 callouts last year.

About 50 per cent of these are

medical calls and the other half

are emergency events like car

crashes.

“Being in the rural areas, some

of those [vehicle] accidents can

be pretty horrendous because

they’re in 100km/h areas,” said

Shepherd.

Icons will feature in new reserve

• By Matt Slaughter

SOUTHBRIDGE Reserve

reopened on Friday after major

upgrades.

New pathways, picnic tables,

lawns and a mix of native and

exotic plantings have been

installed near the playground.

New playground

equipment

and safety

surface were

installed last year

in the first phase

of the upgrade.

Wayne

Palmer

Restoration

work on the

Southbridge

Hall, opposite the reserve, is set

to begin next month.

Southbridge advisory

committee chairman Wayne

Palmer said the reserve will

be an asset to the community

and a great gathering space,

especially when the hall is

restored.

“There’s a lot of functions

over [at] the hall, like ballet,

where parents drop their kids

off. They’re going to be able to

go over there [the reserve] and

sit down and have a picnic and

if they’ve got younger kids,

they can obviously play on the

playground.

“It’s just going to a bit of an area

where people can gather and have

a yarn, basically,” he said.

Palmer said some reserve upgrades

are still to be completed,

including the installation of a

paved courtyard area with three

panels celebrating the history of

Southbridge.

These panels will include information

on the town’s sporting

icons such as Dan Carter and

information on where old landmarks

in the town like churches

used to be.

They will be installed at a later

date.

The reserve will also be the

site of the town’s first war

memorial, which design work

is under way on and Palmer

hopes will be installed “within

the next six months.”

Palmer said the memorial will

have names of soldiers from

Southbridge who fought in

World War 1 and 2.

The full cost of the reserve

upgrades is not yet known but

will be when the panels and

war memorial are in place, he

said.

NEW: Southbridge

Reserve is reopen

after an upgrade

and more

improvements

will be made

in the coming

months, including

the installation

of panels with

information on

the town’s history,

such as its sporting

legends, including

Dan Carter.

Family photos show Canterbury’s history

FAMILY SLIDESHOW evenings

held in a darkened lounge are

a fond, nostalgic memory for

Christchurch woman Isabel

Tweedy.

Her late father Ian Tweedy was

a hobby photographer who took

thousands of slide photographs

in his lifetime, recording family

holidays, picnics and tramping

trips.

Some of his images from the

1950s, 60s and 70s have been

added to Christchurch City

Libraries’ archives and after Ms

Tweedy sorted through her dad’s

collection and realised some

would have a wider interest and

historic significance. A selection

can be seen on the discovery wall

at Tūranga.

She has sent 28 slides to the

libraries’ photo hunt, which is

being held for the 12th year as

part of the Christchurch Heritage

NOSTALGIC: Isabel Tweedy with a photograph of her

young self. Right: Ian Tweedy’s photo shows Ms Tweedy

and her mother in front of the Royal Yacht Britannia at

Lyttelton.

Festival from Saturday until

Sunday, November 8.

“I remember how exciting it

was when a new box of slides

arrived,” Ms Tweedy says.

“Dad would put them all in

order and we’d get friends around

to watch them with a break in the

middle for a cup of tea and some

baking. The slides are a record of

our childhood.”

Her father meticulously

labelled each slide with dates,

names and places and kept

them in wooden cases he made

himself.

Some of Mr Tweedy’s photos

entered in the photo hunt show a

family sledding on Lake Ida, Ms

Tweedy and her mother standing

in front of the Royal Yacht

Britannia at Lyttelton wharf

when Queen Elizabeth visited

for the British Commonwealth

Games in 1974, and the Hay’s

Christmas Parade.

Others show a horse-drawn

tram on the Papanui line, the

Wings and Wheels air show

at Wigram and Ms Tweedy’s

sister and a friend pushing a

lawnmower as children.

One taken from the Christ

Church Cathedral spire, looking

down Colombo St, won a

commendation in a 2016 photo

hunt, and one taken in Victoria

Square at night won the overall

prize the same year.

Christchurch City Council

head of libraries Carolyn

Robertson says the theme of

this year’s hunt is encounter our

stories and the goal is to gather

a wide collection of photographs

from across the community.

“These images reveal unique,

personal stories and they’re a

great way to bring Canterbury’s

heritage to life in a way people

can really relate to. Mr Tweedy’s

photos are a vivid record of family

experiences and local history

going back seven decades.”

Photo hunt images are

uploaded to the discovery wall at

Tūranga Central Library and can

be seen by visitors keen to learn

more about the city.

Ms Tweedy says her father

would be surprised and quietly

pleased that his images are being

shared.

“We knew that they were well

worth saving. But he would be

absolutely astounded to know

they are now being held as

historic records.

“He was a very humble man

and he didn’t have a lot to say but

photography was a real interest

for him. He would be very

embarrassed but quietly pleased.”

Proposed Selwyn

District Plan

Because

it matters.

How does it affect you?

Looking after our

natural environment

How can we

look after native

flora and fauna?

Mike, ecologist from Lincoln

Selwyn is an area rich with natural features and landscapes, from the Canterbury Plains and

Southern Alps to the Rakaia and Waimakariri rivers and the coastal lagoon of Te Waihora/

Lake Ellesmere. It’s important that our natural environment is protected from inappropriate

land use and development, while at the same time ensuring it continues contributing to

people’s economic and social wellbeing.

Key proposed changes – natural environment:

· A larger area of the district is identified with landscape value that needs

protection from inappropriate land use and development.

· The level of management of a protected landscape area will depend on

its values. For example, some areas are proposed to have restrictions

on earthworks; others will have restrictions on shelterbelts, vineyards or

orchards where that would change the naturalness of the area.

· Introducing indigenous biodiversity areas on the planning map within the

Proposed ePlan where rules managing indigenous biodiversity apply.

· Voluntary listing of significant natural areas in the District Plan.

· For the first time we are identifying the habitat of two indigenous animal

species (Canterbury mudfish and crested grebe) which will be protected.

· New rules for managing clearance of indigenous vegetation.

· Mapping coastal environment areas for the first time where further

restrictions on various activities are being introduced.

· Introducing specific rules that manage sky glow across the district,

such as a district-wide rule that lighting is to be directed downward and

shielded from above.

ROLLESTON TOY Library may

soon be homeless after being

open for less than a year.

New Zealand’s newest toy

library has been based at Storage

King on Izone Drive, Rolleston

since former owners Chris and

Ayyam O’Brien offered free use

of three storage units and one of

their delivery trucks.

It is New Zealand’s only solely

online click and collect toy

library and it opened in January.

It has grown significantly and

now more than 60 families use

it.

The library initially operated

its toy pick-up and drop-off

sessions from the Rolleston

Community Centre car park

but winter weather and an

expanding membership

meant that this soon became

impractical.

Chris and Ayyam offered the

use of their office for Sunday toy

pick-up and drop-off sessions.

The new Rolleston Storage

King owners are unable to

support the arrangement, and

toy library volunteers have had

to temporarily suspend their

service while they search for an

alternative solution.

Said toy library publicity and

promotions officer Michelle Sim:

“We are incredibly grateful to

Chris and Ayyam for helping us

get off the ground.

“However, we now have more

than 60 members, with more

wishing to join, and we’re very

conscious about ensuring we can

deliver reliable service for them.

We’re pulling out all stops to try

to find a new home,” she said.

This is proving to be an uphill

battle due to strict district

council regulations and the fact

that the non-profit group have

limited funds, as it is still in its

first year of operation.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Toy library after new home

UNSURE FUTURE: Rolleston Toy Library may no longer be open for members like Sam

McConnell (right) if it can’t find a new home. Left: Toy library committee member Hannah

Jozko.

“Obviously we are doing our

best to raise funds to help meet

potential rent costs.

“But we’d be thrilled if

someone in our community was

able to support us in any way

to ensure we can continue this

valuable service for our local

families,” said Sim.

Library volunteers are on

the lookout for a space such as

a garage, shed, office or small

warehouse to house their toys

and allow members to come and

collect and drop off their loans.

Committee via its Facebook

Intersection

work on

Rolleston Drive

under way

FOOTPATH AND road

changes around a new

Rolleston intersection are

now under way.

Work will be taking place

on the shoulder of Rolleston

Drive and Norman Kirk Drive,

where the intersection is, for the

remainder of the year.

As part of this, there will be

layout changes to footpaths and

roads around Rolleston Drive,

Norman Kirk Drive and Dryden

Ave.

Work took place on footpath

on the western side of Rolleston

Drive last week.

Norman Kirk Drive is

scheduled to be closed in the

first week of November on the

corner south of Selwyn Health

Hub. The district council

recommends entering Norman

Kirk Drive via Kidman St.

This project will require speed

restrictions or closing one lane

of Rolleston Drive.

There will be onsite signage

advising of any major changes

coming up and this will also be

available by calling the district

council, or on its Facebook page

and website.

Impact of

pandemic on

businesses

discussed

THE DISTRICT council’s first

Selwyn business breakfast was

held earlier this month to support

businesses and help them keep

operating through Covid-19

uncertainty.

More than 60 people from businesses

across the district attended

the Rolleston event to network and

hear from guest speakers.

Economist Benje Patterson

discussed results of the first Selwyn

business survey, a quarterly survey

organised by the district council.

The survey showed that conditions

have been tough but Selwyn businesses

reported better operating conditions

than the rest of New Zealand.

Many guests spoke about the benefits

of meeting with other businesses to

know they were facing similar challenges

and opportunities.

Said Rolleston hair dressing salon

owner Margaret Craw: “It’s a great

thing to do to get everyone together

and realise you’re not out there on

your own. I’ve picked up quite a lot

of information on how things are

for everyone.”

regional commissioner for

Canterbury Dianne McDermott

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in

Each week he introduces a new species found

Readers respond to

Selwyn Times articles

on the new Southern

Motorwary on-ramp

Our ongoing concerns about

safety all stem from the New

Zealand Transport Agency‘s

original design of how to move

Lincoln traffic onto the new

motorway.

In the original plan, Lincoln

traffic was to use Hamptons Rd

as a path of least resistance onto

Shands Rd with no access to the

motorway through Prebbleton,

only via the Shands Rd on-ramp,

hence no on-ramp to the motorway

off Halswell Junction Rd.

I was told this by an NZTA

representative at an information

evening for the proposed motorway.

So now the motorway is

open there are serious deficiencies

in design and operation of

the whole roading network in

and around Prebbleton clearly

driven by the growth in the area.

– Chris White

Moth controls ragwort

A SLENDER moth that forms

a T shape when resting is the

hoary plume moth known by

entomologists as platyptilia

isodactylus.

With a wingspan of 19-29mm

this moth is pale fawn to brown

in colour with pointed wing tips.

Known also as the ragwort

plume moth, this species is native

to central and southern Europe,

Mediterranean, North Africa and

was introduced to Australia as a

biocontrol agent of ragwort.

The larvae of the moth feed on

groundsels or senecio species.

The plume moth species has

two generations, with moths

active in spring and autumn.

Females have a life expectancy

of roughly 12 days and can lay

about 100 eggs in that time.

Young larvae feed on leaves

initially before tunnelling into

the plant stem, while older larvae

also feed on crown and roots.

While Malcolm Lyall is

complaining about the route

to Prebbleton being dangerous

he should also know that a

roundabout is planned for the

Marshs Rd/Springs Rd corner

which will be the obvious way to

Prebbleton then.

I would have thought a valid

complaint could be made about

Shands Rd ending up with three

traffic lights when the original

design was for it to be free flowing.

It saved building a bridge

on Marshs Rd but is another

obstacle in peak traffic. – Clive

Faces of Selwyn returns

with fresh stories

Teacher, artist, gardener, farmer, Kaumātua, storyteller – Denise Sheat has many strings to her bow.

“That’s why I am 83,” she laughs. “I’ve done a few ten years around the place.”

Denise’s story is part of the second Faces of Selwyn exhibition. A dozen fresh stories celebrating

the district’s diversity are on display at the Council offices in Rolleston this week and will then be

displayed in the Selwyn Libraries.

Denise moved to husband John’s Dunsandel family farm in 1962 and after having two children,

she taught tamariki at Dunsandel and then Burnham Primary School.

The multicultural roll at Burnham School had strong significance to Denise, whose bicultural

background includes descent from a Ngāi Tahu chiefly line. She began to participate at Selwyn’s

Ngāti Moki Marae at Taumutu and became fluent in Te Reo Māori.

“I found it quite hard to learn, but it’s a beautiful language and lovely to sing. Teaching the children

the songs in schools was pure heaven.”

Denise then became a resource teacher of Māori in Selwyn for the Ministry of Education.

“I went to all of the schools in Selwyn to tell them stories and I usually went singing in the car all

the way too. I was so happy to drive to Darfield or Springfield,” she recalls.

She went on to lecture in Māori at Christchurch’s College of Education, became Taumutu’s

Kaikaranga – the ceremonial caller, and later Taumutu’s kaumātua - a respected elder of the

marae, and turned Dunsandel’s old church into a craft shop.

In 2010, Denise moved to Rolleston, serving on the establishment boards of Clearview and West

Rolleston primary schools. In 2015, she became an officer of New Zealand’s Order of Merit for her

work in education and for Māori.

Denise now works as a kaumātua, paints, gardens and meets the rangatahi and tamariki in her

neighbourhood. She only hopes she hasn’t left it too late to write a book for her whānau about her

life adventures.

Draft Bylaw for Keeping of Animals, Poultry and

Bees consultation closing soon

There’s still time to have your say on proposed rules for keeping animals, poultry and bees in our

urban areas.

As Selwyn’s population grows, especially in our townships, so does the number of pets and animals we

have. Which is why the Council has developed a draft bylaw on the keeping of animals, poultry and bees.

The draft bylaw will help manage issues to do with the keeping of animals (excluding dogs), poultry and

bees, in urban areas of Selwyn.

Submissions are open until 5pm Friday 6 November.

You can read the draft bylaw and make a submission online at selwyn.govt.nz/animalbylaw. Or you can

download a submission form and email it to animalbylaw@selwyn.govt.nz or post to: The Regulatory

Manager, Selwyn District Council, Bylaw for Keeping Animals, PO Box 90, Rolleston 7643.

The Proposed District

Plan – looking after our

natural environment

On a farm near Southbridge, two streams and some careful tending

are helping bring back some of the region’s natural heritage.

The Inwood Farm is home to one of 71 Significant Natural Areas

(SNAs) in Selwyn, where landowners and the Council work to

protect and restore native biodiversity. In the case of Alison and

Stuart Inwood this corridor of cabbage trees, flax, carex, ferns and

other native vegetation along the banks of The Hei Hei and the Lee

River which run through their farm.

The couple first began protecting the area in 2016 when they saw

the opportunity for riparian plantings of locally sourced native

species. The Council began supporting them through its Selwyn

Natural Environment Fund in 2018 when an ecological survey

showed the huge value of the area.

The plants provide food for native birds and insects, and protect

and raise the water quality of the streams, providing a habitat for

fish and other wildlife. It is hoped their care could encourage more

native birds back to the Canterbury Plains.

The Council helps protect our natural environment both by working

with landowners such as the Inwoods and by setting rules to

protect it from inappropriate land use and development through

the District Plan.

The Proposed District Plan, out for public consultation now, makes

a number of changes to how the natural environment is protected.

It identifies indigenous biodiversity areas, applying new rules for the

clearance of indigenous vegetation and to protect the habitats of

the crested grebe and Canterbury mudfish.

Listing of sites like the Inwood’s as SNAs in the Proposed Plan is

voluntary. The Council works collaboratively with landowners to

try and achieve long-term protection of SNAs and other areas of

indigenous biodiversity.

The Proposed Plan also adds new rules to identify and protect

our coastal environment, including the margins of Te Waihora/

Lake Ellesmere and adjusts the rules around areas identified as

Outstanding Natural Landscapes or Visual Amenity Landscapes.

You can find out more and make a submission until 5pm Friday 11

December at selwyn.govt.nz/districtplanreview.

A celebration walk marked the end of 10 days of SWELL events and activities drawing hundreds of

older Selwyn residents.

The walk through Lincoln’s walking tracks and reserves with a talk from a Council biodiversity officer

marked the end of 79 different workshops, talks and activities for this year’s SWELL, aimed at helping

older residents live well.

Particularly popular events included the Have a Go Days from over 25 clubs. Fitness activities such as

sit and be fit, Tai Chi and aqua aerobics classes also drew attention, with new members signing up for

long-term classes.

In particular, the Zumba Gold class was such a hit with participants, it prompted the Council to organise

its first weekly class to be held on Fridays at the Lincoln Event Centre.

Senior District Sports and Recreation Programme Coordinator Linda Miratana says the class focuses on

balance, range of motion and coordination.

“It is super fun and great for both body and mind. The instructor describes it as 45 mins of low intensity

dance fun, rather than feeling like a physical workout.”

Rolleston Transport Improvements Project

community update

Where are we at?

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is working closely with Selwyn District Council and KiwiRail, to

develop an integrated transport plan for the Rolleston and Burnham area. The long-term (30 year)

programme of improvements will be implemented in stages.

The plan centres on travel improvement options between Burnham and the State Highway 1 Weedons

Road Interchange and is designed to improve safety and access for residents, businesses and freight.

The project was allocated $60M funding by the Government earlier this year as part of the New Zealand

Upgrade Programme (NZUP), a range of transport projects to get our cities and regions moving, save

lives and boost productivity.

These include:

A SH1 flyover – with pedestrian and cycle access

Safety improvements to SH1 intersections – between Rolleston Drive north and and Walkers Road/

Dunns Crossing Road.

The improvements will assist local growth and the wider economic prosperity of the region.

Construction is expected to begin in 2022 and continue through to 2025.

What’s next?

From 2022 to 2025

SH1 Rolleston flyover with walking and cycling facilities, a new

service lane parallel to SH1 and an off-road cycleway to Burnham

Longer term

Additional intersection safety improvements and better access

for pedestrians, cyclists and buses

What is the long-term plan?

The Rolleston Transport Improvements Project is near the end of the ‘Programme Business Case’

phase. This is where the planners, transport engineers and other technical staff assess extensive work

done to date and develop a mix of alternatives and options, with input from transport partners and key

stakeholder groups. Work planned in surrounding and connected areas is also factored in. While some

of the detail is still to be worked through, like funding and timing, the long-term programme (30-years)

maps Rolleston and Burnham’s future transport needs and helps us plan and prioritise.

The plan is to:

Increase safety – reduce transport related deaths and serious injuries (particularly at state highway

intersections) and provide safer facilities for pedestrians and cyclists

Improve liveability and connectivity – increase access to economic and social opportunities and have

more transport choices available locally

Improve transport network reliability and more sustainable journeys – make improvements to

support lower carbon travel options for people moving around and through Rolleston and Burnham, the

Rolleston Industrial Area and for rail freight on the Main South Line.

The programme includes a number of intersection improvements, a local service lane running parallel to

SH1, level crossing upgrades and greater provision for pedestrians, cyclists and buses – for example: a

new park and ride facility.

Once the Rolleston Transport Improvements Programme Business Case is endorsed by Waka Kotahi,

the programme will be refined by further investigation and input from the community. We will provide

updates as the project progresses.

WINE LOVERS of a certain age

will remember references to a

characteristic called “Kiwi green”.

No, I’m not talking about

another mind-altering

substance now under debate,

but a pronounced green, leafy,

capsicum note that was prevalent

in cabernet-based New Zealand

reds from the 80s and 90s.

It is derived from a

chemical compound called

methoxypyrazine, which is also

found in sauvignon blanc.

Discussion during the tasting

centred on the eradication of

this character, with the increased

drinkability this has given New

Zealand reds.

Make some marvellous muffins

A QUICK AND tasty snack,

muffins are popular with just

about everyone and these sweet,

moist date and bran muffins have

the advantage of being high in

fibre as well as delicious.

The date mixture has to be cool

before you add it so make it in

advance. You can speed up the

cooling time by placing the pot of

hot dates in a sink of cold water.

And, of course we all know

that, when it comes to muffins,

the less mixing of the batter that

you can get away with, the better.

Bran and Date Muffins

Ingredients

1 cup dates

¾ cup boiling water

½ cup brown sugar

1¼ cup plain flour

1 cup bran flakes

½ cup brown sugar

½ tsp salt

2 tsp baking powder

1 egg

1/3 cup melted butter

1 cup milk

Directions

Begin by making the date mixture.

Rinse the dates well to get

rid of any dust or dirt and chop

finely. Place them, along with the

boiling water and the first measure

of brown sugar into a small

saucepan.

Bring to the boil and simmer

for about 10min. Give them the

odd stir so that they don’t stick to

the bottom. They should be nice

and thick by then. Leave to cool

before adding to the rest of the

ingredients.

Preheat your oven to 200 deg

C.

In a large mixing bowl, mix

together the flour, bran, salt, baking

powder and second measure

of brown sugar.

Lightly beat the egg and add to

the milk and melted butter. Into

this, stir the cooled, cooked dates.

Add the wet ingredients to the

dry mixture and stir until only

just combined. The mixture will

be quite wet.

Line a 12-hole muffin pan with

paper cups and spoon in the

muffin mix. Cook for 15-20min

or until the muffins are just firm

when lightly pressed.

Feta and Tomato Muffins

Ingredients

2 cups plain flour

3 tsp baking powder

¼ tsp salt

2 eggs

1/3 cup butter

1 cup milk

1 cup grated tasty cheese

4-5 dried tomatoes in oil

100g feta cheese

a small handful of parsley or

basil leaves

Directions

OPTIONS:

These date and

bran muffins

are nutritious

and tasy. Try

the feta and

tomato or

cheese and

onion muffins

next time.

Line a 12-hole muffin pan with

paper cases and preheat your

oven to 190 deg C.

Place the flour, baking powder

and salt into a large bowl.

Add the grated cheese and mix

through so that it is well dispersed.

Melt the butter and mix it with

the lightly beaten eggs and milk.

Break the feta into smallish

pieces and gently stir it through

the egg mix along with the finely

chopped tomatoes, basil or parsley.

Add this wet mix to the dry

ingredients and stir lightly so that

it is only just mixed through.

Spoon into the muffin cups and

bake for 10-15min.

There are a number of

variations that work well with

this recipe. You can add a little

chopped ham, salami or cooked

bacon if you wish or cut out the

feta and add your own favourite

cheese.

Cheese and Onion

Muffins

Just leave out the feta and

tomatoes from the previous

recipe and replace them with

a couple of finely sliced onions

that have been cooked in the

microwave or a pan, with a little

butter until very soft. The onion

becomes lovely and sweet and

makes the muffins moist as well.

Add about half a cup extra of

grated cheese.

Mercedes SUV can be sporty or tame

THERE’S BEEN a lot of debate in

the Star Media newsroom lately as

to what constitutes a four-wheeldrive

vehicle.

When reporting, there’s a general

belief that anything that sits high

and looks like an enlarged station

wagon is a 4WD.

Of course, that’s not the case,

many of today’s tall wagons just

have drive to front or rear wheels

only, and they fall into the category

of sport utility vehicles. To complicate

the matter many SUVs do have

four-wheel-drive.

One car which squarely fits into

the SUV and 4WD categories,

and adds a luxury element as well,

is Mercedes-Benz’s GLA 250, an

entirely new model that has just

landed in New Zealand.

The GLA has been a steady seller

for the brand, and the newcomer

will easily pick-up where its predecessor

left off.

At just over 4.4m the GLA is

firstly a compact SUV, but one

that is versatile and capable as an

all round family vehicle, and one

which can be sporty or tame all in

the one package.

The GLA lands here in four variants

depending on power outputs,

all engines have four-cylinders. The

200 (2WD) has a 1.3-litre unit, the

250, AMG 35 and AMG 45 S have

the same basic 2-litre engine with

varying power outputs depending

on how much turbo boost

you require as a driver and, as I’ve

alluded to, those three models get

Mercedes Benz’s 4Matic all-corner

drive system.

The GLA 250 lists at $86,500;

others in the range start at $73,300

and end at $126,400 for the full

noise 45 S.

In recent years I’ve evaluated several

Mercedes-Benz vehicles with

the low power 2-litre turbocharged

engine, and have never been disappointed.

The GLA 250 sits with that

well, it is capable and competent,

it’s just that it doesn’t have the massive

injection of power that comes

with its AMG stablemates.

Interior features are extensive

and too numerous to mention

but I must make mention of the

large centre screen display which

flows across the dash panel, much

like the size of two iPads joined

together horizontally. Most of the

in-cabin features can be controlled

through it, but if you would prefer

to make adjustments through voice

command, a simple ‘hey Mercedes’

will prompt a reply, and you can

talk to the vehicle instructing it

through a multitude of commands.

Up front sits a 1991cc, twincamshaft,

engine which is rated

with 165kW and 350Nm of torque.

On the subject of figures, it also

MERCEDES-BENZ GLA 250: Four-wheel-drive provides a

feeling of control and balance.

fares quite well with fuel usage,

Mercedes-Benz claiming a 7.5-litre

per 100km combined cycle average.

During my testing time the

trip computer was constantly

listing around 8.5l/100km which

wasn’t that far distant along with a

5l/100km instantaneous reading at

100km/h (engine speed 1500rpm).

The GLA 250 drives through an

eight-speed dual clutch automatic

transmission. The low and close

proximity of ratios allow for a solid,

unbroken flow of power. When the

pressure is on, the GLA 250 will

launch to 100km/h from a standstill

in 6.7sec and easily complete

an 80km/h to 120km/h overtaking

manoeuvre in 5sec. These

are quick times and will satisfy

the performance driver, when the

turbo is boosting strongly the feel

of power is dynamic, inviting spirited

motoring.

I took the test car through the

gentle undulating twists and turns

of the inland scenic route of the

Selwyn district, returning home

through Dunsandel and Lincoln.

The balance and feel of grip is quite

phenomenal through some of those

tight corners heading towards

Ellesmere. Even though the 4Matic

system only comes into play when

grip at the front is marginal, there

is a feeling through the driveline of

control and balance.

Fitted to the GLA 250 are high

profile Continental tyres (235/50

x 19in), and because of their tall

structure they absorb a lot of road

nuances, imparting high levels of

in-cabin comfort. They are also

quiet and allow strong feedback at

the steering wheel along with positive

directional accuracy.

With its 4Matic system the GLA

250 has useful off-the-seal ability.

I didn’t take it off-road bar for a

short burst on a shingle track, but I

can imagine it would be a great car

to tackle the winter skifield access

road or, as we come into summer,

the perfect vehicle to travel to the

peninsula batch.

It is also a good example of why

the word utility is part of the SUV

acronym.

GARDENING

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Look after your mower

WITH THE mowing season

upon us, it’s time to make sure

your lawn mower is as ready as

you are to tackle those lawn care

chores.

A regular, simple maintenance

programme to keep your mower

performing at its best and to

extend its useful life. Just follow

this easy checklist:

•Change the oil

Oil is the engine’s lifeblood that

removes contaminants, lubricates

parts and dissipates heat.

That’s why it’s important to make

sure the crankcase contains an

adequate supply of fresh oil.

Before changing the oil, run the

engine for several minutes until it

warms up. Then, stop the engine,

disconnect the spark plug and

drain the oil into a pan or similar

container. Refill the crankcase

with high quality detergent oil

that has a SG/CD classification

on the label. Take the used oil

to a local recycling centre. It’s

environmentally unfriendly and

illegal to dump used motor oil

on the ground or into a storm

drain.

•Check the air filter

Your air-cooled engine needs

a constant supply of clean air.

If your mower engine takes a

disposable paper filter, simply

replace it with a new filter. If the

engine requires a foam-type filter,

remove the sponge from the filter

assembly, soak it in kerosene and

squeeze it dry. Then apply a few

drops of clean oil into the sponge

and place it back in the filter assembly.

CARE: To have a well-groomed lawn your mower will need

constant maintenance.

•Use fresh fuel

Petrol turns stale after about 60

days and can form gum in your

engine’s carburettor, resulting in

expensive repairs. Eliminate the

problem by routinely filling your

engine’s tank with fresh fuel. If

petrol must remain in the tank

for a prolonged period of time,

add a fuel stabiliser to keep it

fresh and to ensure a clean fuel

system that leads to easier starting.

•Sharpen the blade

Think about what a dull razor

does to your face or legs when

shaving. Similarly, a dull mower

blade can bruise, bend and damage

your lawn, making it susceptible

to disease. After disconnecting

the spark plug, examine the

blade for wear or damage. Have it

professionally sharpened at least

once annually.

•Keep things clean

While you’re checking the

blade, remove any dirt and

caked-on grass under the mower.

Squirt vegetable oil cooking

spray underneath to reduce

clipping build-up and to prevent

rust.

HEIGHT: A raised garden made out of timber is easy to

maintain.

Tips to simplify

your garden

WITH THE warmer weather

comes the awareness that

Christmas is really not that far

away.

Unfortunately, most of us wait

until the last minute to work on

our gardens, just before the big

day arrives.

Often we find the task either

too big or too difficult, hence

a lot of us leave it incomplete

or even worse, don’t start at all.

Well, here are some simple tips

to improve your outdoor living

areas.

1: If your garden is too much

to handle then simplify it. Look

at what plants you have. Your

likes and dislikes. Too big or

too small? Leaf droppers or

sun blockers? The list goes on.

Ascertain what has to go and

get rid of them. You may be surprised

at how simple things make

a big difference.

2: Remember, often less is best.

At this stage you may need to

seek some professional advice

to help keep in mind the picture

you want to create.

3: If your garden and plant

maintenance is high and you’re

finding it hard to cope, then weed

out the problem. For example,

it just maybe time to realise that

the roses are no longer suitable.

Remember you can always substitute

them with an alternative

plant.

4: Consider building raised

gardens with timber or garden

sleepers. Besides adding a point

of interest, you have the added

benefits of a well drained garden

that is easier to maintain. You

may even consider split level

gardens which will add an

aesthetic value to your piece of

paradise.

Stagger planting for continuous cropping

OCTOBER IS sometimes

unsettled, but by the end of the

month, temperatures have usually

risen and the growth in the

garden abounds.

There are a million tasks to do

in the garden; all enjoyable, especially

the planting of the summer

vegetable garden.

It’s probably the most active

month of the year in the vegetable

garden. Prepare the area

well by adding in new compost in

significant quantities.

All summer vegetables can

now be safely planted, including

courgettes/zucchini, cucumbers,

beans, beetroot, carrots, celery,

corn, leeks, lettuce, melons,

onions, radish, pumpkin and

tomato.

To avoid vegetables all maturing

at one time, stagger your

plantings as continuous cropping

and supply is much preferable.

As plants become established,

apply light side dressings of

vegetable fertiliser to help

develop strong healthy plants.

Water young plants regularly and

deeply to encourage a strong root

system.

The last of winter flowing

annuals can now be removed

and the soil prepared for new

plantings. As with the vegetable

plot, add plenty of compost to

the soil and dig it over well to

create a fine tilth (breadcrumb

like texture) ready for planting.

Summer flowering annuals can

include alyssum, asters, cornflowers,

californian poppy, cosmos,

livingstone daisy, lobelia, marigolds,

nemesia, petunias, portulaca,

phlox, salvias, sweet peas

and zinnias.

In warmer areas, harvest seminole

tangelo (which will finally be

ripening) and grapefruit. The first

application of fruit tree fertiliser

can now be made. Repeat again

in six weeks’ time.

Loquarts are now ripening, filling

a gap in the harvesting

fruit calendar. Kiwifruit and

grape vines are now growing

vigorously.

Trim growth where it is not

required. Mulch trees with

crushed bark as the soil warms up

to prevent weed growth and aid

water retention during the hot,

dry summer months.

Check your strawberries

for any signs of grey mould

(botrytis). Remove any infected

leaves and ensure there is enough

pea straw, mulch or hay around

plants to keep developing berries

DISPLAY:

Plant

marigolds

now for

colour.

Add

compost.

clean and healthy

It’s a busy time for lawn lovers.

The first application of lawn fertiliser

can now be made; hopefully

at the same time as spring rain,

otherwise water it thoroughly

after applying.

Sow seed where there are

bare parts of the lawn, add new

topsoil before broadcasting the

seed and lightly water to activate

germination. Mow your lawn

regularly to encourage vigorous

growth.

Classical winter flowering

shrubs such as rhododendrons,

camellias and azaleas are now

coming to the end of flowering.

They may require some minor

pruning before they break into

spring growth. Apply fertiliser to

these plants now and apply mulch

all around your shrubs.

Now is a great time to plant

containers and pots with summer

flowering annuals such as

petunias which are a favourite

to provide colour throughout

summer months. Start your new

seasons display by removing

existing potting mix, thoroughly

cleaning the container before

refilling with new container mix

and planting.

In the herb garden, remove any

old plants from the previous season

herb garden. Plant out new

seasons herbs, including those

that are frost tender such as basil.

Clip your herb plants frequently

for culinary use and to encourage

fresh young growth.

There is still time to pop some fertiliser on the lawn, just make sure you

water it in well as soon as you have applied it. This task needs to be done

in the evening so that the sun doesn’t burn your lawn once the fertiliser is

applied, and then pop the sprinkler on to give it a good soak. Water your

lawns early in the morning and later in the evening, not in the heat of the

day. Where possible, water for an hour or more to give it a good soak

rather than a quick watering. A handy tip is to set a water timer and you can

let it do its thing! Grab one in store or online today.

Locally sourced quality

Big Mountain Naturally is a local,

Selwyn based, pet food manufacturer

with its premises at 540 Burnham School

location.

The company specialises in

manufacturing quality, natural, raw

pet foods made from only the best

ingredients such as rabbit, wallaby, hare,

venison, goat, chicken and sometimes

beef. Harvested from the mountains,

valleys and farms surrounding Mount

Cook (Aoraki) in the South Island, it

is company policy not to use artificial

flavoring, coloring, preservatives or

chemicals in the manufacture of their pet

food.

Big Mountain Naturally has operated in

Burnham for the last five years and prior

to this, processed rabbit for the North

American market from their Tekapo

location. It was there that owner Robert

MY PRIDE AND JOY

Family fun day in November

Make sure you pencil in the November

22 to visit the popular Selwyn Motor

Fest at HelPet Park on Rolleston Road,

opposite Rolleston College. Last year’s

event attracted more than 500 vehicle

entries from car enthusiasts throughout

Canterbury and beyond, and raised

over $20,000 for local charities – but the

focus is also on a fun family day out and

includes bouncy castles, face painting,

mini jeep rides, raffles and stalls.

“We are hoping to go bigger than ever.

Covid has shut down a lot of events this year

and we plan to give Selwyn locals and the

wider Canterbury community a good show

and a great day out,” says Tracey Campbell,

chair of this year’s organizing committee.

Instead of hiring a live band, the

organisers are getting the community

involved. They are collaborating with

the Selwyn high schools to showcase top

local talent for a variety of entertainment

throughout the day.

The Selwyn Motor Fest will run from

10am to 3pm. Tickets cost $5 for

individuals or just $10 for the whole family.

For vehicle enthusiasts, it costs $15 to preregister

your vehicle for the show.

“There is no restriction on the type

of vehicle. It doesn’t have to be a certain

vintage or make. It could be a car,

bike, truck, van or caravan… if you’re

enthusiastic about your vehicle, bring it

along,” says Tracey.

The Selwyn Motor Fest has run annually

since 2017 and over the previous three years

raised more than $60,000 for local Selwynbased

charities and non-profit organizations.

“A lot of organizations are doing it tough

this year. Donations are the first budget

item to be cut when jobs are uncertain. We

hope to be able to give back to the local

community and play a part in keeping these

organisations going,” says Tracey.

The committee is grateful to their

sponsors for supporting the event, and

making it possible to give back to the

community, both through entertainment at

the event and through fundraising.

“McLenaghan Contracting is our

principal sponsor again this year, along with

Accessman. We’re also on the lookout for

additional sponsors and we welcome local

charitable organizations to apply for funding

support from the event,” says Tracey.

Trusted vehicle repairs and rebuilds

Delray Auto is a one-stop, trusted vehicle repair

shop for all your vehicle needs. While they specialise in

rebuilding pre-1990s cars, their passion for quality work

is carried forward from hot rods and classics to modernday

vehicles.

Run by husband and wife team, Wayne and Brenda

Martin, Delray Auto has just relocated to larger premises

at 21 McTeigue Road in Hornby, a move that allows them

to take on more projects.

“We do everything from build cars to an oil change -

and there’s a lot in between - from mechanical repairs,

to panel beating, spray painting and rust repairs, to

services and WoFs,” says Wayne, a qualified automotive

engineer, panel beater and welder, who brings 47 years

experience and a solid reputation in the car fraternity to

the business.

He says all the staff at Delray Auto (which includes

mechanics, panel beaters, a welder and fabricator and a

painter) are petrol heads with a passion for working on

earlier cars, and most of their work comes from referrals

from customers.

“We’re very customer service focused. We listen to

what the customer wants and deliver that at a reasonable

price. Repairs aren’t cheap, but we explain the costs

upfront so there are no surprises, and we try to look after

our customers as much as we can,” says Wayne.

Delray Auto also has a retail shop with a full range of

classic parts – a step back in time to a 1960s Hot Rod

shop. They specialise in 1937 – 1954 Chevy car and

truck parts and memorabilia. You’ll find everything from

taillights through to car accessories and signs.

“We import parts from America weekly and have a

good deal on shipping, so if we don’t have what you are

looking for we can get it,” says Wayne.

Delray Auto is hosting an open day and BBQ on 21st

November from 11am. Whether you have a WoF or a

larger repair or rebuild in mind, or want to spend time

with others who have a passion for older model cars, pop

in for a chat and have a look around the new workspace.

For mechanical work and repairs, it is advisable to

book in advance. Contact Delray Auto on delrayauto@

xtra.co.nz or 03 344 1077 or visit their Facebook page

(Delray Auto on Facebook) or their website at www.

delrayauto.co.nz for more information.

CHRISTCHURCH DISTRICT PLAN

PROPOSED PLAN CHANGE 5

PACKAGE OF CHANGES

Christchurch City Council has initiated Plan Change 5 to the District Plan.

The proposed Plan Change

Proposed Plan Change 5 is a group of plan changes which seeks to:

• Reinforce direction that offices and shops are to be primarily located in the

Central City and commercial centres as well as clarifying the role of these

centres as commercial focal points (5A).

• Clarify and better reflect the intent and outcomes sought in the Commercial

chapter, including the role of centres and the types and scale of retail, offices

and other activities that are anticipated in centres amongst other changes

including definitions (5B).

• Clarify what is sought and/or required in the Industrial chapter, including

clearer direction for the redevelopment of former industrial land for residential

and mixed uses that support good neighbourhood design amongst other

changes including definitions (5C).

• Make sure that home-based businesses are of a type and scale appropriate in

residential and rural areas through various changes including to definitions

(5D).

• Simplify a rule for noise insulation near railways and roads (5E).

• Changes to zoning and overlays on the planning maps for identified sites,

including to reflect what is already happening or anticipated, zone new roads

and open spaces for their intended purpose, as well as realigning the zone

boundaries between Christchurch and our neighbouring Districts, amongst

other changes (5F).

• Make changes arising from the implementation of new national direction that

requires removal of car parking requirements. This includes consequential

changes arising such as a landscaping rule for car parking areas, which is based

on the number of car parks required (5G).

• Provide for antenna associated with telecommunications at an appropriate

scale (5H).

• Enable temporary signs associated with general and local government

elections (candidate and party) and referendum (5I).

More information

The proposed Plan Change and assessment, including the rationale for the

plan change and alternatives considered (as required under section 32 of the

Resource Management Act (RMA)) and supporting information can be viewed

on the Council website at ccc.govt.nz/ plan-change-5 or in hard copy at Civic

Offices and any of the Council’s service centres and libraries during normal

opening hours.

Submissions

Anyone may make a submission on this Plan Change. Written and electronic

submissions must be in accordance with the prescribed Form 5 of the Resource

Management (Forms, Fees & Procedure) Regulations 2003 or similar. You can

make a submission online at https://www.ccc.govt.nz/haveyoursay/, email it

to: planchange@ccc.govt.nz or post it to: City Planning Team, PO Box 73012,

Christchurch 8154. You can also download a hard copy form at that link or

collect a hard copy form from Civic Offices, Council service centres and libraries.

For details of your nearest service centre or library, please visit ccc.govt.nz/

contact-us or phone 03 941 8999.

Submissions must be received before 5pm on Monday, 30 November 2020.

Process for public participation

Once all submissions have been received, they will be made publically

available. There will be an opportunity to make a submission in support of or

in opposition to any of these submissions (known as a ‘further submission’).

Those who can make further submissions are defined under clause 8 of

Schedule 1 of the RMA. A Council hearing will then be held to consider all

submissions, and decisions will be made following this hearing. Anyone who

has made a submission has the right to appeal the decision to the Environment

Court.

The rules proposed in this Plan Change will have no legal effect until the

Council gives public notice of its decision on the Plan Change and matters

raised in submissions, or the Environment Court makes an order which grants

any rule immediate effect (RMA, s86B).

If you’d like more information, or have any questions please contact the

City Planning Team on 03 941 8999 and ask to speak to a member of

the City Planning team about Proposed Plan Change 5 or email us

Situations Vacant

Application under the

Charitable Trusts Act 1957

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the ESTATE of JAMES

GAMMACK (the Trust) has made application to the High Court

at Christchurch for approval of a scheme under Sections 33

and 34 of The Charitable Trusts Act 1957.

The Trust was established in 1896 under the will of James

Gammack. The Trust’s charitable purposes include the

establishment of four university scholarships known as the

“Gammack Scholarships”, and the support of the “Circulating

Department of the Christchurch Public Library”. The scheme

proposes to restore the balance of the distribution amounts

between the two funds to correct for inflation, and then make

consequential amendments to adjust trustee remuneration,

to extend the powers of the Trustees, and to vary the mode of

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

Painting your

home to sell?

When you’re getting ready to sell your

home, you’ll probably want to pretty

things up to make it more appealing to

buyers. Always ask the advice of your

real estate agent first (it may not be

necessary and you’ll save yourself time

and money) but if you do choose to head

to your local paint store, it’s good to have

a plan before jumping into high gear.

Stick with neutrals

Neutral doesn’t just mean white (and

all the shades of it). It’s possible to use

colour and keep your tones neutral. Walk

into your local paint shop and you’ll see

a whole wall of whites, creams, greys and

other neutral tones that will help create

the look of a blank canvas for your buyer.

Felicity D-C of Ray White says: “Neutrals

help buyers envisage adding their own

touch once they’ve moved in.” And

remember, you’re not doing it to win a

design competition. Keep your focus on

giving the property a fresh, new feel and

help buyers see the possibilities.

Focus on the main areas

Unless your property is in a dire state,

there’s no need to panic over getting a

lick of paint on every wall. Focus on

the main areas of the house—kitchen,

lounge, bathrooms—where buyers are

likely to spend more time. What’s equally

important is using the correct paint.

For example, use the wrong paint in the

bathroom and it could end up blistering

or peeling because of moisture or lack

of ventilation. And don’t forget the front

door, first impressions count.

Don’t forget the exterior

Before you hit the brushes, imagine

coming to view the property yourself.

What would you be looking for? Borrow

a high-pressure hose to get rid of any

loose paint or moss that’s taken up

residence. And while you’re at it, Felicity

says mow the lawns, do the edges,

remove weeds and then hose down paths

and your exterior walls—you’ll freshen

up the whole look.

Want to know more? Talk to an agent

like Felicity and get cracking. Email:

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

All class and a must see

One peek at Stonewood Homes’ new showhome

will impress while stimulating ideas for your new

home.

This 235sqm, four bedroom house oozes style and

quality. It is a home to impress as well as be lived in.

Positioned on its 785sqm section to maximise the

sun, and with large windows, skylights and underfloor

heating, you are guaranteed a warm home in the

cooler months. Sliders leading out from the lounge,

dining/living area and master bedroom also mean an

airy, cool home when hot outside.

With a higher than normal internal stud, cathedral

ceiling throughout the living area, and a boxed ceiling

in the master bedroom, the home has a spacious look

and feel. Complementing this, is a soft neutral interior

décor and tasteful features.

The showhome has four separate outdoor deck

areas, providing plenty of places to sit, play or relax.

Indoors, one can escape with a book, watch a movie

or entertain in the separate lounge where a floor level

strip window adds interest.

With triple sliders leading from the

living room to a large hardwood deck

and generous yard, as well as two other

decks out from this room, it is a perfect

place for family living and entertaining.

Built-in cabinetry in the lounge and

living room, complete the picture.

The kitchen is a practical, wellappointed

workroom. It has an eye

level wall oven, island sink with a gold

Fawcett, under-island dishwasher,

and 900mm gas cooktop. The latter is

positioned by a side window, leaving

a clear workbench. The island itself is

stunning, exemplifying how a kitchen can blend

synonymously with a living area. A large walk-in

pantry sits behind the kitchen, offering space for a

double refrigerator.

The opulent main bathroom is unique in interior

design and layout. It has a freestanding bath, large

hanging double vanity with bowl inserts and walk-in

glass shower. Guests will love the charming oriental

style feature walls in the separate toilet, where there is

also a washbasin for convenience. A spacious ensuite

and separate good-sized walk-in robe adjoin the

master bedroom.

Leading off from the hallway is a good sized

laundry. This has under-bench space for both

washing machine and dryer, and a full height storage

cupboard. Added to the line-up of service rooms is a

fully shelved walk-in linen cupboard.

Stonewood Homes’ latest showhome at 48 Lanner

Drive in Rolleston is not to be missed. It is open
