Low crime rate in district

leaves residents feeling safe

New data has

revealed the district

is the least crime-hit

out of anywhere in

New Zealand. Matt

Slaughter spoke to

residents about what

makes the area safe

BRENT HAPPER, who owns

Happers Honda in Dunsandel,

said it has been about 10 years

since the store has been hit with

any sort of crime.

The 43-year-old has lived in

Dunsandel for most of his life

and said crime has not been an

issue.

Happer put the lack of crime

in Dunsandel down to “being

slightly rural.”

“We have that community

feel where people sort of feel like

you know each other still,” he

said.

He said the township’s

residents know who the police

officers who serve the area are

and this is beneficial for reducing

crime.

Perhaps it is no surprise then

that Selwyn has the least crime

of anywhere in New Zealand.

NO SURPRISES Selwyn

is the safest place to live in

New Zealand (see page 1).

It is a great place to live.

Statistics released by Dot

Loves Data last week shows

there are 12.68 crimes

committed in Selwyn per

10,000 people per month.

The data company has

analysed crimes from theft

to assault.

The big question though,

how will the data look in

five to 10 years. The district

is expanding rapidly,

young families are descending

on Selwyn in the

biggest wave since it was

settled 150 years ago.

As the teenage population

mushrooms it will

bring with it social issues

commonplace in bigger

urban areas.

It will be up to the

parents to do their job

properly to ensure Selwyn

stays a great place to live.

A MEETING to discuss nearby

residents’ concerns with the

Weedons Rd overbridge is yet to

take place, causing frustration.

Former district councillor Gary

Doyle, whose house is beside

the overbridge, has requested a

meeting to discuss his concerns

with the New Zealand Transport

Agency, which has contracted

Downer and McConnell Dowell

to do the work.

He was told it would take three

weeks to have a meeting to discuss

his concerns with NZTA but

this date has now passed.

NZTA portfolio manager Colin

MacKay did not answer a question

from Selwyn Times as to why

this meeting has not happened

yet or when it will happen.

Work on the overbridge is

part of the Southern Motorway

project.

Doyle said there are a number

of issues, including a roundabout

sign on the overbridge that does

not show the direction to the

section of Weedons Rd where he

lives.

Motorists have to slow down

dramatically to make the turn

to get to this section of the road

and because it is not marked on

the sign, Doyle said he has nearly

been t-boned on a number of occasions

by drivers not expecting

turning vehicles.

Selwyn Times reported in July

NZTA agreed to make upgrades

to this signage near the Southern

Motorway but this hasn’t happened

yet.

MacKay did not say why the

upgrades have not been made or

when they will be made.

Doyle’s wife is unwell and the

work taking place on the overbridge

is negatively impacting her

and has made his house shake,

causing things to fall over inside.

He said the project has also

caused diesel fumes to waft into

his property.

He has many other concerns

FRUSTRATED: Gary Doyle says work taking place on the

Weedons Rd overbridge next to his home is continuing to

negatively impact the lives of him, his family and others

who live close to it.

about the work taking place on

the overbridge. He said it is affecting

his and his daughter and son

in law’s properties, which are on

the same section.

Said Doyle: “I want the issues

that we have here attended to, answered,

and something done. This

whole project is two years behind

schedule.”

Doyle said the issues that need

addressing include the state of the

water race beside the overbridge,

which Doyle called “a disgrace,”

and spraying which took place as

part of the project, which he believes

resulted in the death of two

of his granddaughter’s budgies,

several bonsai trees and a number

of hedge plants on his daughter’s

property.

Doyle’s other concerns include

street lights on the overbridge

shining down into his property, a

camera on it that looks down into

the property, breaching privacy.

The height of the roundabout

and the road it is on, which is

considerably higher than it was

in the original plans, is also a

concern for Doyle.

MacKay did not respond to

questions about Doyle’s list of

concerns.

Instead, he said: “There are

many issues to be resolved including

some with individual property

owners. The project team is

in regular contact with Mr Doyle

and his son-in-law, and we have

met with him many times since

the project got under way to help

resolve any issues raised.

“In any major project with

several interchanges and

bridges, work will not always

proceed exactly as anticipated

at the outset. If it is wet, weather

dependent parts of the project

may be delayed and other work

will advance or be rescheduled,”

he said.

But Doyle said the project team

has not been in contact with him

regularly and he has raised his

concerns with NZTA “15 or 20

times.”

No date set to

hear concerns

of motorists

• By Matt Slaughter

CONCERNS ABOUT the

Southern Motorway’s Springs Rd/

Halswell Junction Rd on-ramp

will be discussed with New

Zealand Transport Agency staff.

But a date has not been set for

this yet.

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board chairman

Mike Mora told Selwyn Times last

month he would ask for a meeting

to be held between the two

organisations to discuss safety

concerns for motorists trying to

get onto the on-ramp.

Motorists coming from the

Prebbleton direction have less

than 200m to cross to the onramp

lane. They have to navigate

their way across, avoiding vehicles

from the Sockburn side of Springs

Rd, and traffic coming through

the roundabout from Hornby.

Mora said it is important the

meeting happens as soon as

possible before a serious crash

happens.

Deputy mayor Malcolm Lyall

said he will consider going to the

meeting, if he is invited, to ask

for more signage telling motorists

how to get to Prebbleton along the

Southern Motorway.

However, Lyall said he’d prefer

less talk and more action from the

NZTA.

Low crime rate credited to face-to-face police

• From page 1

Dot Loves Data has analysed

crimes across the country, including

theft, breaking and entering,

illegal use of a motor vehicle,

theft from a retail premises,

assault and theft from a motor

vehicle crimes.

It was found there are 12.68

crimes committed in Selwyn per

10,000 people per month.

In comparison, Rotorua, which

has the highest crime rate in

New Zealand, has a crime rate of

61.21, almost five times higher.

Said the report: “Selwyn is

notable because it also has the

lowest levels of deprivation of any

region in New Zealand, providing

further evidence of the strong

correlation between deprivation

and crime.

“The median household income

in Selwyn is $103,737 and

there are extremely low levels of

beneficiaries. 98.2 per cent of all

households have access to a vehicle,

93 per cent have access to the

internet 79.4 per cent of households

own their own home.”

Lincoln residents Errol and

Ruth Wood don’t know anyone

in the town who has been burgled

in the about four decades

they have lived there.

Said Errol: “I don’t know of

anyone personally in Lincoln

who has been robbed or burgled

in 38 years.”

SAFE: Ruth and Errol Wood do not know anyone who has been burgled or robbed in

Lincoln in their 38 years of living there. ​

Errol is the chairman of Selwyn

Community Patrol.

He thinks Selwyn’s crime levels

are lower than other parts of

New Zealand because of the large

amount of work police do out of

the office and face-to-face with

the community.

“They [police] are not deskbound

and I think that’s a focus

here that they patrol and they’re

out and about and ready to act.

“I think the police we’ve got are

very much community-focused,”

he said.

He also said residents look out

for each other and keep an eye on

their neighbours.

However, he said some crimes

have increased since Lincoln’s

population has grown since the

earthquakes.

“I know that, more recently,

there’s been petty crime, stealing

since the growth of the town and

Senior Sergeant Stephen

McDaniel said it is hard to say

exactly why the district’s crime

rate is lower than the rest of New

Zealand but believes it has something

to do with it being smaller

and “up and coming.”

He said it is less prone to crimes

that happen in bigger, urban cities

and towns, such as violent crime,

and car thefts and burglaries are

the most common things police

deal with.

However,

McDaniel

said dangerous

driving

is a big

concern for

the district’s

police.

Stephen

McDaniel

“We’re

talking about

crime stats

but the thing

is, when you look at road policing,

I mean, we’ve got huge problems

with intersections that sort of

thing through Rolleston and

Selwyn because they’ve just got

the most intersections, that sort of

area, throughout New Zealand.

“We have still got traffic issues

about complacency and, at

the end of the day, a lot of fatals

[crashes] happen in that area. So

they might not have the crime but

they’ve definitely got the traffic,”

he said.

He said police priority in Selwyn

is to get out in the community

as much as possible and maintain

a face to face relationship with

residents. He said their strong

physical presence in town may

play a role in deterring crime.

LINCOLN HIGH School has

been recognised for its efforts to

practice road safety.

The school has received the

Bridgestone Excellence in Road

Safety Education Award, as

National Road Safety Week

commences throughout New

Zealand.

Since first attending the

RYDA programme in 2017 following

a road tragedy within its

community, the school has seen

more than 600 students take

part in it.

Associate principal Stephen

Rout said the programme is a

holistic approach to road safety

education and plays a key role

in creating change on the roads.

Said Rout: “We are very

committed to the RYDA programme.

We know within our

community in recent years we

have had young people who

have died of crashes and we

would do anything we can to

avoid that sort of thing happening

again.

“RYDA covers a number

of really key issues for young

people and it’s not just about

drivers, it’s about passengers as

well,” he said.

Road safety efforts from

Lincoln High recognised

As part of the RYDA programme,

students take part in

a workshop which features a

series of sessions led by expert

facilitators who address laws,

distractions, risk management,

peripheral vision, and other

motorists’ requirements.

Said Road Safety Education

New Zealand manager Maria

Lovelock: “We were delighted

to choose Lincoln High School

as this year’s award recipients

as they have shown a real commitment

towards road safety in

their school and helping their

students to start their road user

journeys with strategies to help

them mitigate their risk.”

Bridgestone New Zealand’s

director of business John Staples

said: “Lincoln High School

shares our passion for this

topic, highlighting the positive

impact it makes on young lives

and shaping a culture of safety

conscious drivers and passengers.”

The accolade was awarded

on Sunday by dignitaries in

Auckland as they witnessed the

along with other landmarks

around the country, in yellow

to promote awareness of road

In Brief

MOTOR-CYCLISTS IN FOCUS

Police will be ensuring motorcyclists,

whose skills have

deteriorated though lack of winter

riding, are safe on the district’s

roads this month. Rolleston Acting

Sergeant Daniel Ingram said a

lot of motor-cyclists use Selwyn

roads and are at high risk because

of the number of 100km/h roads

in the district with sometimes

challenging road layouts. Motorcyclists

breaking minor rules will

be asked to attend safety courses.

CAMPING GROUNDS

The district council has received

about $220,000 from the

Responsible Camping Working

Group Fund for the maintenance

of rubbish and recycling bins,

the upgrade of signage and

for cleaning, emptying and

maintaining a variety of toilet

facilities at camping grounds,

freedom camping sites and

caravan dump stations.

POOLS OPENING

Some of the district’s outdoor

pools will be open from this

weekend. Southbridge Pool will

be hosting an opening party on

Saturday between 1-4pm. On

Sunday, Darfield Pool will also

have an opening celebration from

1-4pm. There will be an inflatable

and the hydroslide at Southbridge.

A free barbeque will be held from

1pm and spot prizes will be given

out. Normal pool admission prices

Proposed Selwyn

District Plan

Because

it matters.

How does it affect you?

Looking after our

heritage and culture

Selwyn has experienced several waves of settlement by Māori and

Europeans over many decades. As a result there are sites, buildings

and structures in our district which are of cultural or historic value to

individuals, families, iwi, rūnanga and communities.

It’s important we look after all the things and places that are part of our

history and identity, and preserve them for current and future generations

to enjoy and learn from.

How do we protect Selwyn’s

historic heritage?

Joe and Tracey, heritage building owners from Courtenay

Key proposed changes –

historic and cultural heritage:

· Updated schedule of listed heritage buildings, structures and items

· A heritage item’s setting will now also be part of the listing, which means

erecting buildings and structures, and some earthworks within the

setting, will be managed

· Updated schedule of listed notable trees

· Updated criteria to help identify notable trees for listing in the District Plan

· Overall the rules for listed heritage items and notable trees aren’t

proposed to change much, other than the requirement to manage some

activities in the setting of a heritage item

· The sites and areas of significance to Māori identified in the Proposed

District Plan largely reflect those that are identified in the operative District

Plan. However, one change is the inclusion of a Ngā Tūranga Tūpuna area –

covering Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere, its margins and associated wetlands,

along with the coastal area between the Rakaia River and Taumutu

· New rules to recognise and protect sites and areas of significance to Māori.

These rules manage a number of activities, eg erecting new buildings or

structures, whereas the current District Plan only manages earthworks

Cultures blend at highland games

SCOTTISH AND Kiwi

culture came together

at the 10th Hororata

Highland Games on

Saturday.

A total of 570 competitors

danced, piped, drummed,

tossed, ran and tugged in

front of 8500 people and

2020 chieftain John de

Vries.

With borders shut

and no international

competitors this year, an

all New Zealand field for

the heavy lifting events

produced a hotly-contested

competition.

Ashburton’s Craig

Manson won the men’s

championship with Siositina

Hakeai taking out the

women’s trophy.

The band of the day

belonged to Canterbury

Caledonian grade 3.

The Average Joes took

out the men’s Southfuels

tug of war for the third year

in a row, and team Fulton

Hogan won the mixed

competition.

Hororata Primary School

won the Harraways junior

warriors competition.

The champion highland

dancer was Danielle Joy.

Hororata Community

Trust chairman Richard

Lang said Covid-19 put this

year’s games in doubt but

the support it received from

sponsors, suppliers and volunteers

made it possible.

“It was a magnificent,

family day. People were enjoying

being out and about,

having something different

to do. Our ‘have a go’

events were busy all day as

everyone got into the spirit

of the Hororata Highland

Games,” said Lang.

Said de Vries: “I am just

so proud to be part of Clan

Hororata and to have been

asked to be chieftain. I believe

the reason the games

is such a special, successful

event is the sense of community

that comes from

everyone involved.”

A highlight of the day

was the chieftain’s welcome

ceremony which saw a

blend of Kiwi and Scottish

culture.

“Standing on the stage in

front of hundreds of pipers

and drummers as they

played Flower of Scotland

was so powerful, then

followed by the local kapa

haka welcome it was really

moving,” de Vries said.

There’s already plenty of interest in the

beautiful new homes at Woodcroft Estate

Lifestyle Village especially with its next

generation financial model where

owners benefit from any capital gain

when it comes time to sell.

RETIRE IN

STYLE

AND REAP THE FINANCIAL

REWARDS

There are many things to consider when

making the decision to move into a

lifestyle village. Everyone has different

requirements, whether it be a true

community atmosphere with an inclusive

social scene, or be situated in a new

suburb where everything you need is

close by, or well-designed quality home

which supports and caters to all aging

requirements. Whatever your fancy, it’s

rather easy to see Woodcroft Estate as

your new home. “Our owners are better

off in every way,” says Manor Group CEO

Adam Yates.

“Here, people enjoy a warm, safe and

relaxing environment within a friendly

community, while the onsite manager

looks after any concerns or maintenance

issues. All those jobs you had to do to

maintain your old house are taken care

of by the village staff. They manage

any repairs and maintenance to your

home, looking after the gardens and

lawn mowing, providing security,

lighting and even washing windows.”

But there is something even more special

about Woodcroft Estate.

A model of home

ownership that benefits

you more

“Our residents are better off financially”

says Adam. “Our Next Generation model

is designed to be much fairer than

traditional models, allowing residents

to receive the capital gain when the unit

is sold, less a small fee. Our aim is to free

our residents from their worries, while

residents get the financial freedom that

comes from retaining and building on

their equity. The Next Generation Model

means you have choice. Whether you

gift your chosen charity, leave a legacy to

your grandchildren through contributing

to their education or first home, the

choice is in your hands.

Comfortable living

When you move to Woodcroft Estate

you’ll meet likeminded people who like

to make the most of life. Owners tell us

that have never been happier – residing

comfortably in the fast growing and

vibrant new township of Rolleston –

where a library and community centre

are close by. There is a swimming pool

and two medical centres, as well as two

supermarkets. There are even hearing

and eye specialists! Plenty of cafes to

meet friends, and delicious bakeries for

that morning tea – everything you need

to feel right at home.

Great value

A limited number of 2 and 3 bedroom

villas with single or double garages are

available right now. And, priced from just

$425,000, they’re well worth a look.

COME AND JOIN US

AT OUR OPEN DAY

Enjoy complimentary cake and coffee in our magnificent, just

completed Pavillion, have a guided tour of the Village and then

take your time to view the four beautiful new showhomes.

TAYLOR WYATT won the

primary school category of the

Selwyn Environmental Film

Awards at Lincoln Event Centre.

Her film was a demonstration

of how to make a tote bag out of

an old garment, featuring puppet

character Aunt Noodle.

Kidsfirst Lincoln were again

winners of the kindergarten

category with a film that the

judges said featured excellent

music and delivered a powerful

message.

The Kea Trophy overall prize

was won by the Junior Enviro

Action Group – this is a group

of concerned primary and high

school students which have

formed recently and have already

ran some interesting activities.

The competition was launched

earlier in the year than usual in

2020 to give the opportunity for

people to plan and even produce

their films during lockdown.

Said Lincoln Envirotown Trust

project manager Dave Fitzjohn:

“The variety of entries made for

an interesting awards evening.

Lincoln Envirotown which

run the competition were very

grateful to Elizabeth Lovell, the

chair of the Rata Foundation for

presenting the prizes and the

trophy.

“There was a great response

from both within and from outside

Selwyn including one from

overseas,” he said

people young and old about our

environment,” said Fitzjohn.

fields in small town Hororata

sits a large green reserve

surrounded by trees.

Most days, the Hororata

Domain is a place for recreation

and sport, but in the months

of May and November it holds

some of Selwyn’s major events –

The Hororata Highland Games

and Night Glow.

Behind these events of

10,000 people is Hororata

Community Trust executive

officer, Cindy

Driscoll.

Events have been a part

of Driscoll’s life from a

young age.

At 15 she was involved with

events at her parent’s tourism

operation at Ryton Station, Lake

Coleridge.

In 2014 Driscoll came on

board with the highland games

and in the last few years organised

the Hororata Night Glow, a

light up of balloons to music.

The highland games originally

inspired by a few Scottish

people in the area is the The

Hororata Trust’s biggest fundraiser,

The face behind

highland games

Cindy Driscoll

just a roundabout you drive

through, Driscoll said.

The highland games is now

the largest Scottish festival in

the southern hemisphere.

All year round Driscoll

is working on these events,

managing sponsorship finances,

advertising and enabling 230

volunteers all over the country

to commit time to the

highland games.

In her free time

she works with the

community, supporting

Go Hororata which is

working on plans for a

possible new community

centre.

“The hall that we’ve got is not

fit for use, it’s an old building

and needs a lot of work to bring

it up to code. The community

made the decision that a new

purpose built community centre

on the domain would serve

us better.”

Starting with a feasibility

study in 2017, Driscoll has

continued to work with the

community, architects, project

managers and the ciy council to

develop a concept plan for the

community centre and a master

plan for the Hororata Domain.

Working with the community

is Driscoll’s favourite part of the

job.

The Faces of Selwyn exhibition was launched last year and a new

CULTUREFEST saw

hundreds of people

attend 10 days of events

celebrating the district’s

many cultures.

For the first time, the

district council organised

and supported 18 cultural

events, including martial

arts and language lessons

and cooking and art displays.

Popular events included

a Kirant cultural evening,

where 60 people attended

for food, music and dance

from the Kirata culture of

Nepal.

A group of 49 women

SETTLED: Param Kaur

has lived in Selwyn for

four years and loves

her job at Gladfield

Malt in Dunsandel. ​

Param Kaur

Param Kaur came to

New Zealand for the dairy

industry, but stayed for the

malt and coffee.

Param moved here

four years ago to study at

Lincoln University hoping

for a gateway into New

Zealand’s largest exports.

“The main reason for

coming to study in New

Zealand was the dairy industry.

That was my main

focus at the time.”

But after completing a

graduate diploma in science

at the university in

2017, she discovered there

was more to Selwyn than

farming cows.

Param found herself

working in Selwyn as an

exporter who produces not

milk, but beer.

She received a phone call

from Gladfield Malt in December

2017 about working

as their lab technician.

“It was like an early

Christmas present, I can’t

express in words.”

When she arrived in

February 2016, she found

it freezing compared to the

40 deg C she was used to.

“February is not a cold

month, but when you come

from India you do feel

cold. I had to wear an extra

layer of clothing,” she said.

If she could describe

living in Selwyn in three

words, Param said she

would use the words freedom,

equality and fresh.

Freedom because, “there

is nothing to worry about

here and you can be independent,

and own your

own life.”

Equality because,

“straight away you find

here everyone has equal

rights. No one says you are

a girl, you can’t do this.

Girls and boys work shoulder

to shoulder.”

Fresh because, “you can

step out of your home and

you see the mountains

around you and your mood

changes if you have anything

going on in your mind.”

Since her first day of

work, Param says her kiwi

and migrant co-workers;

three from Fiji and manager

Gabi from Brazil have

been welcoming and accepting

of her nationality.

“I have seen no person

discriminate on the basis

of colour or anything, you

don’t feel like you’re inferior

to anyone.”

would like classes like

these held more often.

Other events included a

Mandarin class for beginners,

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, a

Singaporean cooking demonstration,

Tai Chi, Henna

workshops, belly dancing,

Highland Dancing and

Chinese calligraphy.

The potluck Dinners of

Selwyn evening brought

together 25 residents from

a wide range of cultures,

who took their favourite

dishes to share.

From her lab window at

Gladfield Malt, she can see

the mountains.

In winter they have snow

on them; a sight she never

saw in India. While she

misses Indian food and her

family, Param says her colleagues

at Gladfield Malt

are like family.

“It feels like an extended

family for me now at Gladfield.

Sometimes I get a text

from Gabi saying, ‘drive

safely,’ and if they think

you are feeling low, they

ask if you are okay.”

She enjoys keeping

alive the traditions of her

culture, cooking her own

Punjabi dishes, volunteering

at Holi Festival and

performing Punjabi dance

at last year’s Diwali Festival

in Christchurch.

But, these days she’s settled

in Lincoln and hoping

to get residency to New

Zealand. You will often

find her taking an evening

walk or in a cafe on a

Saturday.

“I love going for a coffee.

I didn’t used to as much in

India.”

She also hopes to get

residency one day.

Param likes that everything

in Lincoln is in walking

distance and on her

walks to and from Coffee

Culture or Robert Harris

she notices how welcoming

everyone is.

“When people pass by,

they smile at you and say:

‘Hi,’ and ask how you

are. You don’t find that in

many countries.”

PASSION: A West African drum ensemble at

Dishes included Persian

lentil rice known as Adas

Polow, a Chinese cold dish

of seaweed, Sri Lankan

fried rice, ratatouille and a

few Kiwi classics.

Simon Kouch, who

arrived in Selwyn from

Auckland only two weeks

ago said the event was a

great way for new residents

to meet people.

Student Eva Zhou said

it was an unforgettable

experience and she enjoyed

meeting a range of people.

Challenge and inspiration

at Arts Festival

William Sutton, Plantation Series XVIII, 1988. Reproduced courtesy of Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna O Waiwhetū

Feathered friends, bugs, fashion and a public peek at a huge collection of Kiwi art are all aiming to

inspire and challenge people in the second annual Selwyn Arts Festival.

Following a successful festival last year, the Council has once again partnered with three Selwyn

art galleries, Te Huanui in Darfield, Lakeland Gallery in Leeston and Down by the Liffey Gallery in

Lincoln to put on the festival celebrating art in Selwyn.

The year’s festival will feature 13 tours, events and workshops across Selwyn from 14–22 November.

The week aims to stimulate people’s understanding of the arts, with the hands-on sessions

covering everything from chalk painting to block printing and enamelling.

It will also include three public tours of Lincoln University’s collection of over 280 pieces by Kiwi

artists, run by the collections curator Fiona Simpson.

Arts festival organiser and Council Work Readiness and Enterprise Coordinator Trudi Fraser says

the university already runs tours for community groups and was excited by the opportunity to

make its collection more accessible to the community.

“A lot of people don’t know that they have a big collection of New Zealand art, so it was a good

opportunity to open it up to the public.”

Other events range from spoon carving to ‘create a critter’ illustration workshops and a ‘feathered

friends’ themed exhibition of art at Te Huanui Art Gallery in Darfield.

The week will also cover fashion with a glass jewellery workshop, while artist Emily Dot is offering

to turn people’s sneakers into fashion statements by collecting and painting them for $10 a pair.

People are welcome to drop in their clean canvas or leather sneakers from 10–11am on Saturday

14 November and Emily will paint them ready for collection later in the week.

brochure from one our libraries and service centres.

Kirwee Players supporting roles

for rangatahi

Over the past few months, the junior members of Kirwee Players

have been rehearsing lines for their performance of The Lion King Jr,

which premiered last Friday.

Behind the scenes, the Council’s Creative Communities Selwyn

Fund helped provide the show’s creative team, from hiring musical

directors and choreographers, to costumes, scripts and scores.

The fund is available to groups or individuals with community-based

creative projects that promote arts or culture in Selwyn.

Kirwee Players Grant Application Assistant Linda Gosling says

any grant Kirwee Players gets is vital to the survival of this small

community theatre group.

“Creative Communities has been great in the fact that sometimes

the difference between getting a community grant and not, can

mean the difference between actually putting on a show, or not

putting on a show.”

The theatre group has been performing shows since 1977 and in

2015, they introduced children’s shows, which Linda says plays a

key role in its future.

“It is really important. Kirwee Players might be 43 years old, but the

reality is most of us on the committee are well over 40, so we need

to get younger people involved. We don’t just need people on the

stage, we also need people behind stage, so it’s at all levels.

“Doing junior shows, not only opens it up to the youth of Selwyn,

but it also enables these younger directors, musical directors

and choreographers to be in the show’s creative team and stage

management. The funding we get from the Council’s Creative

Communities Fund helps support these opportunities for our youth.”

For more information on Kirwee Players visit kirweeplayers.org.nz or

facebook.com/kirweeplayer.

The Creative Communities Selwyn Fund is open for applications

until 5pm, Friday 27 November. Visit selwyn.govt.nz/artsfunding for

more information and to apply.

Further infrastructure upgrades coming for

Leeston and Doyleston

Three projects to improve flood protection and wastewater infrastructure around Leeston and Doyleston

should be completed by Christmas.

The projects include upgrades to culverts and pipes along Leeston Road and will be coordinated to

minimise disruption along the road.

Work on the Leeston stormwater bypass project is ahead of schedule and the closure of Leeston Road

at the intersection with Station Street has been brought forward, with a detour in place using Station

Street and Cunningham Street.

The works are part of a long-term project to upgrade the stormwater network and reduce the risk of

flooding in Leeston. Final works on Station Street will be completed from 4–22 December, to coordinate

with the other work on Leeston Road.

¯

Flood protection work for Doyleston will also be happening from Monday 23 November to upgrade the

culvert under Leeston Road near Drain Road. This work will enlarge the culvert and reduce the risk of

flooding in Doyleston. A stop/go system will be in place on Leeston Road around this site for two weeks

from Monday 23 November to Friday 4 December.

Taking advantage of the works

already in place, a team is planning

to replace the wastewater pipe

along Leeston Road between

the townships, working from the

Doyleston end towards Leeston.

Work on the Doyleston to Leeston

wastewater pipe is scheduled

to take place from Monday 9

November to Friday 18 December.

The work site will move along

Leeston Road in 300 metre

increments with a low-speed zone

in place.

Infrastructure Group Manager

Murray Washington says the Council

appreciates residents’ patience

while these upgrades are carried out

to improve flooding protection and

wastewater infrastructure.

Leeston Doyleston walk and

cycle link opening

The new walking and cycleway between Doyleston and Leeston will

help bring the townships together when it opens this weekend.

The Leeston Doyleston Way will be officially opened on Saturday

14 November, and members of the public are invited to the opening

event starting at 10am at the Leeston Showgrounds entrance.

Chairman of the Leeston Township Committee Lloyd Clausen says

the cycle and walk way is a long-awaited project that people are

excited to see open.

“There are people using it all the time. It’s great for the towns. It’s

good for the safety of people travelling between the two towns and

it opens up another area for people to walk. It makes life easier to

get between the two and it ties the towns together a bit more.”

The 2.1 kilometre cycle and walk way runs between Drain Road at

Doyleston and Manse Road in Leeston and was built by Leestonbased

Johnston Excavating and Drainage. It relied on needing

additional land from the main adjoining properties to fit the pathway

in alongside Leeston Road where there were a number of design

challenges to overcome.

Council Transportation Asset Manager Andrew Mazey says the

Council is excited to see the cycle and walk way open and adding

to the strong network of cycleways across the district.

“We know people in Doyleston and Leeston have been waiting

patiently to enjoy this path. As a Council we’re keen to support

people in walking, cycling and being active and this is another link

in our chain of cycleways and walk ways that we are implementing

to support that.”

Protecting our district’s heritage

Efforts to protect the history of 12 of the districts’ heritage properties have received a boost through the

Council’s Heritage Fund.

Building repairs, maintenance and a project to safely preserve historical artefacts will all be supported,

with the fund awarding up to $39,000 towards the projects.

Keeping the district’s heritage alive is a big undertaking, which the Council supports through funding

and through the District Plan, which identifies heritage buildings, structures, sites and trees and sets the

rules for their preservation.

Selwyn has experienced several waves of

settlement by Māori and Europeans over many

decades. As a result there are sites, buildings and

structures in our district which are of cultural or

historic value to individuals, families, iwi, rūnanga

and communities.

It’s important we look after all the things and

places that are part of our history and identity, and

preserve them for current and future generations to

enjoy and learn from.

The Proposed District Plan updates the list of

heritage buildings and notable trees as well as

identifying and including new rules to recognise

and protect sites and areas of significance to

Māori. For more about how the Proposed District

Plan plans to protect heritage items and how

to make a submission visit selwyn.govt.nz/

SPORT

• By Alan Batt

BRINGING THE carnival to

Show Weekend is the aim of the

Ruapuna Speedway this Friday

night when it holds a monster

fireworks display to complement

a night of racing.

Ruapuna Speedway president

Rob Roxburgh said that it was

the club’s desire to create a

‘family night out’ with carnival

rides, clowns, performers,

fireworks and the racing.

“We have got one of the local

sideshow operators bringing a

couple of rides along with the

Astroliner and Sidewinder being

parked trackside. There is a free

bouncy castle for the younger

ones, clowns and performers. On

top of that we had a really good

opening race meeting in October

and the break in-between

race meetings has seen competitor

numbers climb in several

classes.”

The star performer at that

opening meeting was Rolleston

based sprintcar racer Jamie Duff,

who was just .4 of a second off

the long-standing one-lap record

of 12.687, set by eight-time

national champion Allan Wakeling

in 2004. Duff has vowed that

should the track again be in top

condition that he really wants a

crack at that time.

He will face some stiff competition

this Friday with a number

of visiting drivers planning on

appearing including Nelson's

Brett Sullivan who has spent the

past two summers racing in Australia,

and Cromwell's 'Slammin'

Sam O'Callaghan who always

runs hot at Ruapuna.

Local speedway fans will also

be enthused about the prospect

of seeing long-time midget

car standout David Kerr from

Southbridge taking part in the

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Fireworks expected on and

off the track at speedway

QUICK: Rolleston sprintcar racer Jamie Duff at Ruapuna

recently.

PHOTO: MAINLAND PHOTOS

850hp V8 sprintcars. Although

it is an older car Kerr is the sort

of driver who will shake the bugs

out of it quickly.

Several other local drivers

are sure to be prominent with

Jeremy Webb (Rolleston), Tom

Lumsden (Southbridge) and

Glen Durie (Rolleston) likely to

be among the pacesetters in the

midgets.

Springston's Courtney Jones

won the modified sprint feature

at the opening meeting and she

continues to lead that class.

First loss for Weedons

The revolution

in heat pumps

is here now!

WEEDONS SUFFERED their

first loss of the Canterbury

country cricket season to drop

to third on the premier one-day

standings after embarking on an

unsuccessful road trip to midtable

Cheviot on Saturday.

Cheviot defended 214/9 with

ease at their headquarters, routing

Weedeons for 109 with 15

overs remaining in the visitors’

innings at the Cheviot Domain.

Cheviots strokemakers laid the

platform with every member of

the top-five making 20 or more,

with Archie Redfern leading the

way with 55 from 82 deliveries.

He added 60 for the fourth

wicket with Will Smith (42 from

23) before Sam Clarke limited

the damage with a haul of 4/39.

Weedons never threatened to

overhaul the total as Leighton

Calkin (3/18) dislodged leading

batsmen Brad Nightingale and

departing player-coach Sam Wilson

for 23 and 19 respectively.

At Mandeville, the key dismissal

of Canterbury representative

Henry Shipley three runs shy

of a half-century proved pivotal

before Ohoka beat Darfield by

four wickets.

Shipley’s departure with the

score on 111 sapped the innings

of any momentum as the visitors’

knock fizzled out on 134 in the

42nd. The next highest score was

extras on 16.

Ryan Kelly then steered the

home side to within sight of victory

at Ohoka Domain with an

anchoring 56 from 112 balls.

Oxford-Rangiora claimed their

rain-affected sixth round clash

with winless Lincoln by seven

runs via the Duckworth/Lewis

method.

Oxford-Rangiora posted 177/8

from their 45 overs on their home

wicket - Mitch Power top scoring

with 49 from 55 - and then confined

the cellar-dwellers to 108/5

in pursuit of a revised total.

Southbrook could only find 10

players for their trip to Leeston-

Southbridge and mustered a

meagre 39/8 from 16.5 overs.

Tom Burt (5/17) and

David Neal (3/12) cut a swathe

through the Southbrook line-up

before the hosts needed just 6.5

overs to cruise to an eight-wicket

victory.

Short scoreboards:

Cheviot 214/9 (A Redfern 55, W

Smith 42; S Clarke 4/39) beat Weedons

109 all out (B Nightingale 23, S Clarke

20; L Calkin 3/18) by 105 runs.

Darfield 134 all out (H Shipley 47;

H Williams 2/10, A Hamilton 2/27,

R Miller 2/34) lost to Ohoka 135/6 (R

Kelly 56, H Fitzpatrick 24no; T Innes

2/4, L Foulkes 2/29) by 4 wickets.

Oxford-Rangiora 177/8 (M Power

49, D Fulton 38; W Wroe 3/32) beat

Lincoln 108/5 (A Paterson 41no, R

Sporke 38no) by 7 runs (D/L method)

Southbrook 39 all out (T Burt

5/17, D Neal 3/12) lost to Leeston-

Southbridge 40/2 by 8 wickets.

Points: Leeston-Southbridge 40,

Ohoka 32, Weedons 32, Sefton 24,

Oxford-Rangiora 20, Cheviot 16,

Darfield 16, Southbrook 12, Lincoln 0.

Term 4 Update

Principal’s Message

2020 will be remembered for many

things - perhaps overall it will be

remembered by our school

and wider community as one

that tested our resilience and

ability to navigate through

the very tricky situations

presented by Covid 19. As

a college community we

also acknowledge our wider

community for their support

and aroha following the death of

our Senior Leader Brad Milne due to an

unexpected medical event during the term

three holidays.

Despite difficulty and tragedy, 2020 has been

a very successful year for the College as we

build to 2021 where we become a full school of

over 1300 learners. For those who have walked

this journey with us from the beginning we

thank you for your support. It seems such a

short time ago that we opened our doors to

225 learners in 2017.

Over the coming months you will see

modification to our existing buildings and

Rolleston College Leadership

The aim of the Leadership Programme at

Rolleston College is to create a positive

environment where all students can flourish. It

also provides opportunities for learners who

wish to enhance their experience at College, by

contributing to various areas of school life and

embracing the Rolleston College Spirit.

Leadership offers challenges – intellectually,

organisationally and socially. Learning

leadership skills helps you develop potential.

It gives you the opportunity to make choices,

experience decision making, and accept

responsibility. There are many different

Leadership opportunities at Rolleston College

and these reflect the many different ways in

which someone can show leadership and give

back to the College.

We have recently gone through a vigorous

process to elect the first of our leadership

positions for 2021. This process involved

applications, speeches, group interviews and

individual interviews to select our Year 13

leadership positions. The next step is to select

our Year 10 - 12 Whanau Ambassadors and this

will be completed by the end of Term 4.

some significant extension to our

current physical footprint to

accommodate this growth and

further enhance our state of the

art facilities.

Our successes in all domains be

it academic, sporting, cultural

and arts have been impressive

at all year levels. We showcased

some of our success in these areas at

our CASE evening last Thursday and will

further celebrate success through our prize

givings in the coming weeks.

Our gifted name from Taumutu Horoeka

Haemata means the The Flourishing

Lancewood and our learners continue to

grow from strength to strength during their

time with us from the young sampling to

the mature tree. They flourish and lead with

confidence and we are very proud of the Yr 13

leaders who will represent our college in 2021.

Sport

Rolleston College has had some amazing results in the sporting arena recently:

Highlights include our Senior Boys Basketball Team winning the Thomson &

Whelan Division Two Basketball Competition in 2020 in their first year in the

competition. Hopefully the team will get the opportunity to play in Division one

in 2021. They also played in the College Park Invitational Tournament having wins

over Christ College, Christchurch Boys and Rangiora High School.

The Junior Girls Netball Tournament Team went unbeaten in the Canterbury

Secondary Schools Tournament and won the Mixed Grade for 2020. They had

some big wins against Hillmorton High School, Ellesmere College and Mt Hutt

College.

Nick Rush competed in the National Mountain Biking Champs in Wellington and

finished 4th in the U16 Boys category.

We would also like to wish our Senior Mixed Touch Team all the best as they prepare

for the National Touch Tournament held in Rotorua in December.

Performing Arts

Rolleston College Junior and Senior Theatresports

teams have competed this year in the Court Theatre’s

Theatresports Competition. The Senior team of Bella

Newcombe, Sydney Tupou, Lydia Hawes, Rachel Cook

and Micaiah Pitkethley came second in their heat. The

Junior team of Yana Chernova, Emelia Newman and

Hannah Nolan won their heat and are due to compete

on the Court Theatre stage at the end of November.

We wish them all the best!

During Term 4 a group of year 9 learners have been

studying Children’s theatre and are creating a show to

take into the Rolleston Community. Students are going

to visit the local preschool ‘Paradise for little Angels’

and perform to the children there. The learners are

incorporating audience involvement and a positive

message in their shows. We are really looking forward

to their performance at the end of week 5.

Culture

This term Rolleston College joined the Selwyn Combined Kapa Haka group

(Te Kahui Whetu o Waihora). This meant the coming together of four schools,

Rolleston College, Lincoln High School, Ellesmere College & Darfield High

School. The group has been meeting throughout the term for practises. This is

an awesome opportunity for our learners and will provide a pathway for those

learners that wish to compete at Kapa Haka Regionals in years to come.

RC’s Got Talent 2020

The talent was more evident than ever in this

year’s RC’s Got Talent. The audience numbers

were well up from the heats with the Covid level

having just been dropped back to level 1 the day

before the final. This year the final coincided with

our first Exhibition of the year and this proved to

be a hit with the local community getting in to

support all of our performers.

3rd place went to Alyssa, Cam and Lin for their

rendition of Vanessa Carlton’s A Thousand Miles,

2nd place went to Benjamin Pienaar for his

flawless drum solo and 1st place was awarded to

Keith Chiwara for his self composed rap in which

he also created the backing music for. This year

we also had an emerging talent award with the

prize being donated by Rollestons Robert Harris,

this went to Taylor, Donny, Tim and Jabob for

their rocked up cover of Oasis’s Don’t Look Back

in Anger.

Thanks to all those who came and supported

and also to those who helped out in one way or

another. Special thanks to Hamish for his tireless

tech work, Will and Mitchell for their work with

the lights, George for being our MC and finally,

thank you to our Judges for the final: Mrs Skelton,

Mrs Shaw and Mr Dean.

School Formal

On Saturday 26th September, we held the inaugural Year 12 Ball at Larcombs

Vineyard, Rolleston. Our learners looked absolutely incredible, and there was

some fantastic dancing by all. We had some incredible entrances by our learners

- our friendly local community constable kindly transported a group via police car

complete with sirens, there were numerous limousines and one learner arrived on

the back of a motorcycle, with their entire family escorting them as a motorcade.

Thank you to all of our learners for their impeccable behaviour on the night - it

was definitely one to remember!

MAKING YOUR own muesli is

by no means a cheap alternative

to the store-bought ones but it is

an easy way to get a delicious and

healthy cereal jam-packed with

all your favourite fruits and nuts.

You can use any combination

of ingredients that you like and

recipes can should be treated as

a guide.

Check out the self-serve bins

for fruit and nut ideas.

There is not a lot of honey in

these recipes as the fruit provides

most of the sweetness but you

can add more if you like.

Don’t omit the pinch of salt; it

makes a world of difference to

the finished product.

And finally, watch it carefully

as it cooks. It should be just starting

to colour up and become aromatic.

If you cook it too much, it

will become hard and crunchy.

Muesli

FOOD

Start the day a healthy way with muesli

Ingredients

1/3 cup oil

2 tblsp honey

2 cups organic rolled oats

1 cup wheat flakes

¾ cup all bran or bran flakes

1/3 cup sunflower seeds

1/3 cup pumpkin seeds

pinch of salt

½ cup dried apricots

½ cup dried papaya

½ cup dried mango

½ cup dried pineapple

½ cup Brazil nuts

a few figs or dates

Pre-heat your oven to

150 deg C.

Roughly chop the dried fruit

and nuts and set aside. In a large

bowl combine the oats, wheat

flakes, all bran or bran flakes,

sunflower and pumpkin seeds

and the pinch of salt.

Soften the honey and mix with

the oil. Stir into the dry ingredients

until thoroughly coated.

Cover a baking tray with baking

paper and spread the mixture

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

evenly over it. Place in the centre

of the oven and bake for six or

seven minutes. Remove from

the oven and give it a good stir

around. Return to the oven and

bake for a further five or six

minutes.

Remove from the oven and

stir in the fruit. Place back in the

oven for another minute or two.

Take it out of the oven and leave

until completely cold before

storing in an airtight container.

(Makes about nine cups).

Bircher muesli

Named after Swiss nutritionist

Dr Bircher-Brenner, this raw

muesli is left to soak overnight

in fruit juice to create a scrumptious,

creamy concoction which

is enhanced by the addition of

fresh fruit and yogurt just before

it is eaten. It is a delicious way to

start the day.

The following recipe will make

enough for about six servings,

once you have added all the

fresh fruit and yogurt.

You can use a flavoured

yoghurt but the tang of a plain

unsweetened yoghurt compliments

the sweet fruit and

creamy oats nicely. Replace the

orange juice with milk if you

prefer a creamier muesli.

Ingredients

1 cup rolled oats

½ cup desiccated coconut

1/3 cup dates

1/3 cup dried apricots

1 dsp honey

1¼ cup fresh orange juice

To serve

2 bananas

1 apples

1 orange

plain yoghurt

Wash and roughly chop the

dates and apricots and mix with

the oats and coconut. Add the

honey and orange juice and stir

well to combine. Cover tightly

and place in the refrigerator

overnight.

In the morning, grate the

apple, skin and all, and mash

the bananas. Stir into the oat

mixture along with a few tablespoons

of yoghurt. You can also

add fresh fruit such as an orange

and milk if you wish.

If you just want to make one

serving at a time, you can mix

together the oats, coconut, dates

and apricots and store them in

an airtight container.

That way you have the start

of a delicious breakfast that

just needs orange juice and a

little honey for the overnight

soak and the fruit in the

morning . . . yum.

WINE 27

Port is complex on the palate

• By Mark Henderson

PORT IS a fortified wine from

the Douro Valley in northern

Portugal.

Its history dates back more than

300 years to the wars between the

English and the French, which

curtailed the supply of wine from

France.

Enterprising English merchants

began looking further afield and

began shipping the dark and powerful

wines from Portugal.

To maintain the wine’s freshness

and stability on the journey

to England, brandy spirit was

added to the barrels of wine - its

higher alcohol affording greater

protection against spoilage.

At some point, brandy spirit

was added to the still fermenting

wine, and port was born.

The grape must (the mix of

grape juice and grape skin) is run

into fermentation vessels, with

fermentation allowed to proceed

for barely a couple of days.

The addition of neutral spirit

then kills the yeast, arresting fermentation

and thus retaining the

natural grape sugars in the wine,

while also extracting colour and

flavour from the skins.

In the final wine, spirit makes

up roughly 20 per cent of the volume,

leading to an alcohol level

ranging from 18-20 per cent.

Tawny ports take their name

from the colour of the wine,

resulting from ageing and controlled

oxidation of the wine.

Unlike the boldly fruit-driven

Ruby, LBV and Vintage styles,

Tawny styles offer mellow, nutty,

“rancio” characters, classically

paired with nuts and blue cheese,

or contemplatively sipped by

themselves.

Burmester Jockey Club

Tawny Reserve Port

Price: $46-$47

Rating: Very good to excellent

Caramel/butterscotch, raisins,

spices/clove, walnut with a

sherry-like hint.

This offers a sweet golden

syrup-like character with toffee

apple and creme brulee “burnt

sugar” echoing on the palate.

The overt sweetness pares back

with aeration, while crispness

grows, bringing this into a nice

place.

Shows more aged tawny characters

than fruit.

www.burmester.pt

Taylors Fine Tawny Port

Price: $37-$39

Rating: Very good

Bonfire smoke, charry notes,

burnt toffee, boot polish, spiced

fruit. Creamy and viscous,

mouthfilling, there’s sweetness

here, yet a tangy undercurrent,

too.

As it opens up, there’s stewed

plums, berryfruit and sultanas,

flowing to a smoke and walnut

accented close.

I may be curmudgeonly on my

rating, but I find the burnt/charry

elements dominating.

www.taylor.pt

Fonseca Tawny Port

Price: $37-$39

Rating: Excellent to outstanding

Subtle yet attractively expressed

nose with toffee, walnuts,

spices and fruit cake, a little wood

smoke with time. Sweetness

initially, but drier overall with

freshness and crispness driving

the palate adding nuts, spices and

dried fruits.

There’s excellent complexity

here with time adding a rancio

nuance. Nicely balanced, rich,

mouthfilling and full of appeal.

www.fonseca.pt

Niepoort Tawny Port

Price: $38-$40

Rating: Excellent to outstanding

More fruit evident on the nose

adding treacle, orange oil and

growing fragrance: lots going on.

Creamy and rich on entry, the

fruit leading backed by burnt

orange and milk chocolate.

Grows in power and depth,

showing excellent complexity and

a long, fruit-filled close.

Delightful and rather moreish.

West Melton

Keeping pets safe and healthy

over the holiday season

It is thanks to the “awesome community support” that

the West Melton Vet Centre has grown over the last three

years, says owner Dr Jacoba Vaessler.

She also acknowledges the support of her fellow vets

Dr Rachael Hunt and Dr Teresa Moore, head nurse Sarah

Findlay, and nurses Emma Mackay, Lucy Johns and

Nikita Summerfield, who keep the practice humming

along.

Heading into the ‘silly season’, the team encourages

people to get their animals’ vaccination status up to date

as needed before taking them to the kennels or cattery, or

travelling with them around the countryside.

To keep your animals safe and healthy during the

summer months, they advise there are several things to

look out for:

Bee stings – have some antihistamines on hand,

especially if you are going to be in rural areas and not

close to a vet practice. Talk to your vet about what you

should take with you.

Prevention of heat stroke when driving or during the

day – ensure there is plenty of water and shade available.

Animals tend to lie in the car’s shade, so when getting

into your car make sure there are no animals under the

wheels before driving off.

Grass seed season is starting up, causing a few

problems. These range from itchy skin that will need a

good bath to some animals needing medication to get

through this stage of the season. Also be on the lookout

for grass seeds penetrating the skin, especially between

the toes. For long-hair breeds it is best to shave this area

to ensure seeds don’t get missed.

There are often fireworks being let off during the

holidays, which can cause stress, so talk to your vet about

how to ensure your pet stays healthy and anxiety free.

The vets also see more animals being hit by cars during

this season, so they ask owners to please keep animals

on leads when walking and ensure gates are closed and

fences are secure so they can’t get out.

And remember, the earlier you get a sick pet in

to the clinic the quicker it will recover, plus the

cost will be lower. Always call if you are

uncertain.

The team at West Melton Vet Clinic would like to

thank the community for their support through the

year, and hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and

Happy New Year.

GARDENING

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Get the best out of your basil

THERE ARE a couple of plants

where growers regularly report

that they find a little tricky to

grow. Coriander is one. Watermelon

is another. Another is basil.

Basil is such a great plant to

have on hand. And there are so

many different varieties available

to try.

Get the best out of your basil

and move it off that ‘tricky to

grow’ list.

Basil loves the heat. Look for

the sunniest spot in your garden

and that’s where you should put

your basil.

If the sunniest spot at your

place is in your home (for example

by a kitchen window), then

try growing your basil there. Basil

grows really well in pots and can

easily be kept inside.

When you’ve found the right

spot to grow it just dig a little hole

and plant. If you’re growing it in

a pot use a good, general potting

mix.

Pick it regularly. If you don’t

pick it quick enough it might start

to go to seed. If it does, just pick

off any developing flower heads

to encourage it to stick to leaf

growing.

Next, basil needs water but its

very important you don’t overwater

it. Water it when you plant

it and then water it regularly to

encourage lots of leaf growth. Let

it dry out between waterings –

don’t let it stay wet.

Don’t just stick to sweet basil

– try growing cinnamon, Thai,

lemon, or one of the other varieties.

A good way of sampling the

other varieties is by getting a

mixed basil bundle which will

include a selection of some of the

different basil varieties.

If you do all of the above, basil

will quickly move to your list of

favourite, low-maintenance, easycare

plants.

INGREDIENTS:

Don’t just stick

to sweet basil,

there are many

other varieties,

and other

herbs which

make perfect

companion

plants. Don’t

overwater your

basil.

Container

gardening

rewarding

GARDENING IN pots is a

spectacularly rewarding and low

labour hobby.

Instead of battling the elements,

treating tired old soil,

weeding and digging frantically,

you simply tip the prepared

perfect potting mix into the

container, follow it up with the

plants, water and wait.

It’s hard to go wrong. You just

move the pot around until you’ve

found the perfect sunny or shady

spot because a container garden

is portable.

You can move it about your

home, patio or garden to fill

bare spots at any time of year.

And best of all, when you move

house, you don’t have to leave

your cherished garden behind –

they all shift with the furniture.

Furthermore, container

gardens look great anywhere – as

hanging baskets on terraces and

pergolas, half round containers

spilling colour down a wall or

fence, or simply sitting on paved

areas.

Are you ready to grow?

to gardening in New Zealand.

Canterbury

Anniversary

Weekend

Another long weekend is upon us and there are still

plenty of things to keep us busy outside. Planting

out veggies, weeding and mulching and preparing

the outdoors for entertaining are all on the ‘To Do’

list for this month.

Tomatoes

General rule of thumb in Canterbury is that you can plant your tomatoes

outside from Show weekend. You can get on to this task now and if you have

started them inside, they will be keen to get into a bigger pot or garden bed.

As tomatoes require a lot of nutrition of grow, pop in some tomato fertiliser

before planting and then feed every 4 weeks until the season ends. Once

your plant is in fruit make sure you cover them as birds just love those big

plump red tomatoes as much as you do. Cut off their laterals (these are the

bits that grow out from the main stems), as this keeps the plant healthier

and the nutrients go into producing the main fruit.

What’s hot this month?

• We still have a variety of seedlings available and ready to

be planted out

• A great range of seeds ready to be raised – a great activity

for kids and exciting to watch as they begin to grow

• Vegepods are a real hit at the moment, as well raised

garden boxes. These are available in a variety of styles,

sizes and types. Check them out online and in store

• Neat new products that will be great for Christmas

presents! Check out our Facebook page this month for

for working while standing up, and out of reach of pests. Vegepods

BMW M235i – it’s all in the name

THE LENGTHY name lends

itself to all manner of vehicle

types.

The car I’m referring to is

BMW’s M235i xDrive Gran

Coupe, also described by BMW

as a fastback sedan.

That’s quite a mixture, so I’ll refer

to it simply as the M235i, and

in reality it does cover all those

bases, its compact four-door

sedan concept does have coupetype

styling.

What’s more, because it carries

an M badge it is a performance

car which squarely sits in the

sport sedan category, and you’d

expect nothing less from BMW,

the M235i is a car which tugs

at the senses, oozing style with

its low, sleek shape, and it has

performance to envy through a

225kW engine.

The M235i’s design is curvy yet

aggressive, it has a shape which

lures comment and desire, yet it

also has practicality which doesn’t

always present itself with coupe

designs. The latter is particularly

noteworthy, there is easy entry

and egress up front, the doors

aren’t overly wide so they aren’t a

nuisance in close confines, while

there’s also the benefit of reasonable

leg room for those who are

confined to the rear seats. Also, it

must be said that the boot space is

cavernous, it runs deep to the rear

seats and is easy to load.

At the other end sits a heavily

boosted turbocharged fourcylinder

engine. Herein, lies a

bit of a surprise, in contrast to

BMW’s decades of longitudinal

engineering preference, it sits

transversely in the engine bay.

Drive is effectively channelled

through to the front-wheels, until

xDrive automatically engages

drive rearwards when slipping up

front is detected.

Not only is the engine powerful

up the top end, there is also a

hefty 450Nm of torque to experience,

the combination results in

a solid punch when the accelerator

is given some weight, there is

an exhaust bark and throb that

sounds delightful, especially in

sport mode where the decibels are

increased markedly.

The M235i is fast for a 2-litre car.

It will scorch to 100km/h from a

standstill in 4.8sec, and will lunge

through an 80km/h to 120km/h

overtaking manoeuvre in 4sec

thanks to a strong turbo surge and

high mid-range torque output.

The gearbox is a traditional

eight-speed automatic and it can

BMW M235I: Coupe-type design incorporates a fastback rear.

be manipulated through steering

wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

Between the engine and transmission

the M235i stands out for

solid performance through the

rev band and, of course, there’s

always a gear on hand, there’s

never a feeling that the transmission

is not in a suitable ratio. That

is the benefit eight-speeders offer,

the gaps between ratios are close

allowing the engine to work in its

optimum range.

Of course, the M235i doesn’t

need to be driven aggressively, but

when it is it feels strong, akin to

the performance aspect of BMW.

However, at city speeds it is docile

and feeds power gently so that

stop-start traffic is relaxing.

It is also relatively fuel efficient

given there is a lot of excitement

under the bonnet. According to

BMW the M235i can achieve a

combined cycle rating of 7.6-litres

per 100km. My time with the test

car resulted in a 9.4l/100km average

which wasn’t that far distant,

along with a 5.2l/100km highway

cruise figure with the engine

turning over very relaxed at just

1750rpm at 100km/h.

Even though the M235i is effectively

front-wheel-drive it has

natural handling along with steering

that is weighted perfectly to

pick up every nuance of the road

surface so that the driver understands

the handling characteristics

and how the car is behaving.

BMW is strong on safety, the

electronic devices which control

traction are there so that the entire

car stays stable under power.

However, the chassis is so advanced

that the car doesn’t rely on

the safety devices, it can be driven

hard yet grip is rarely challenged.

overly compromised.

The spring and damper rates

within the fully independent

front-strut/rear multiple link

set-up default to a comfort setting

but are adjustable to the driver’s

command through a series on incabin

push-buttons.

option list.

At $91,400 it does carry a

premium price, but what that

doesn’t take into account is that

along with its title it is more than

one car, every drive is a rewarding

experience, and no matter

whether you drive it soft or hard,

it always feels so good to be in.

THE NEW DISCOVERY SPORT

FREEDOM BY LAND ROVER FINANCE

THE ONLY THING CONFIDENT IN

MODEST IS THE DEPOSIT ALL CONDITIONS

DEPOSIT MONTHLY PAYMENTS FINAL PAYMENT

DRIVE AWAY FOR LESS THAN YOU WOULD EXPECT

The Freedom by Land Rover finance agreement is designed to get you in the driving seat of the premium vehicle you had previously only ever

dreamed of. Simply choose your Land Rover, agree on a deposit, set your monthly payments (based on your annual mileage) and the length of

contract you require – and drive away today.

When setting your annual mileage you also agree to standard wear and tear, and we establish a value that the car will be worth at the end of the

contract term (the “guaranteed future value”). If you decide to retain the vehicle at the end of the contracted term, you simply pay this agreed value.

Right now, with a $19,850 deposit, 35 monthly payments of $901, and a guaranteed future value of $42,066, you can drive away in your new Discovery

Sport R Dynamic S. Just one of the many options available across the range.

At the end of the term, you can choose to retain your Discovery Sport by paying the guaranteed future value, or hand back the keys. If your Discovery

Sport is worth more than the guaranteed future value, you can use this amount as a discount on the latest Land Rover model of your choice.

Archibalds | 38 Tuam St, Christchurch | 021 907 961 - Darren Griffith | archibalds.co.nz

Available on Discovery Sport R Dynamic S. MRP of $79,400, with monthly payments of $901 over a 3-year term, with a deposit of $19,850 plus a final balloon payment (the Guaranteed Future Value) of $42,066. Total mileage of no more than 45,000kms over the term

applies. A fixed interest rate of 8.95% p.a. applies. The total loan amount is $73,578. At the end of the term you can choose to keep the car, by paying the Guaranteed Future Value, trade it or return it (subject to T&Cs and excess charges). Offer excludes ORC. While

stocks last at Archibalds on new Discovery Sport R Dynamic S. Not available in conjunction with any other offer. Lending criteria, T&Cs and fees (including an $262.00 establishment fee and $10.35 PPSR fee) apply. Neither Motorcorp Distributors Ltd nor its retailers are

credit providers. Land Rover Financial Services are provided by Heartland Bank Limited which uses the Land Rover Trademark under license from Jaguar Land Rover Limited, who is the registered proprietor of the trademark. Image is not representative of offer.

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

administering the Trust. This shall be done by the adoption of

a new Trust Deed in substitution for the 1896 Will.

The application is to be heard before the High Court at

Christchurch, on Monday 14 December 2020, at 11:45am.

Any person desiring to oppose the application is required to

give written notice of their intention to do so to:

a. The Registrar of the High Court at Christchurch, at

alec.huisman@justice.govt.nz; and

b. the Trust at the address below, or by email, at

ewan.chapman@duncancotterill.com

not less than 7 clear days before the date of hearing.

This notice is given by Duncan Cotterill, Lawyers, (Ewan

Chapman), PO Box 5, Christchurch 8140 acting for the

Applicant, ESTATE of JAMES GAMMACK.

This property will tick all the boxes

This rural farmlet is as good as you will get, everything since

development days has been done properly. The layout and

positioning of the dwelling and outbuildings make everything run

smoothly and you get that instant appeal and feeling as soon as

you walk in the gate.

Situated in the favoured location of Rolleston, only five minutes

from all the amenities and schooling offered by the booming

Rolleston and Lincoln Townships. Situated on 4ha with approx.

300 Olive trees (Tuscan variety) 17-18years old. The large two

storey home (260m 2 approx.), is a modern three double bedroom

plus study (or fourth bedroom) family home. The main entrance

way leads to a large open two level foyer with a balustrade

surround and a wide stairway leading to the master bedroom that

has an ensuite and WIR, with superb views off its own balcony

looking over the property. There are generous sized living areas,

with great indoor outdoor flow, with a modern spacious kitchen

opening out onto a spacious courtyard area, leading into a mature

garden setting of trees and lawns. There is an implement shed

that has shower and toilet facilities and could be easily converted

into a teenagers sleepout or separate accommodation. The

property is extremely well fenced and subdivided with mature

trimmed shelter belts offering privacy and shelter.

Great opportunity

2 1 1

Don’t miss this opportunity

Situated just minutes from Rakaia with a combination

of freehold and leasehold land. This approximately 92

hectare block would be a great addition to an existing

farm to become a self-contained operation or it would

be a great first farm. The two-bedroom residence has

an updated kitchen, living and dining with the addition

of a north-facing covered veranda. The low-cost

water is applied to the paddocks by three pivots with

the remainder in fixed grid. Well subdivided into 12

paddocks with a range of supporting infrastructure,

this property would fit several farming or lifestyle

systems.

Tips for first home buyers

Struggling to get on the property ladder

and feeling fed up? You’re not alone. Real

Estate Authority (REA) research has found

that more than half of all first home buyers

– even the ones who successfully buy a

property – find the process stressful and

overwhelming.

“We know it’s hard for people when

they’re trying to buy their first home – it’s a

complex legal process and a huge financial

deal. We want to empower them to feel

more confident and in control when they’re

making such a big decision.”

1. SORT OUT YOUR FINANCES

You’ll already know that saving is a big

part of getting ready to buy, but do you

know what else you need to do?

Getting financial advice from a qualified

advisor could be a useful step in your

planning. Owning a property means

you’re responsible for all the maintenance

and repairs – and for paying rates and

insurance. Owning an apartment may also

mean you need to pay body corporate fees.

These costs can be a bit of a shock to the

system if you’ve rented for a long time.

“It’s also a good idea to get conditional

pre-approved finance arranged so you can

move quickly when you spot a property

you really like. Having conditional preapproval

lets you know the price range you

can buy in and it shows agents and sellers

that you’re a serious buyer. It’s also crucial

if you’re planning to bid on a property at

auction.”

Don’t forget to explore ways that

you might be able to get help from the

Government. There are various forms of

assistance available if you’re a KiwiSaver

member, buying in certain areas, want

to buy a former Housing New Zealand

property or are Māori and want to live on

your ancestral land.

2. NEEDS VS WANTS

Many first home buyers discover a big

gap between what they’d like to buy and

what they can afford when they first start

looking.

“Sit down and write a tight list of what

your absolute must-haves are, then work

out what you’re willing to compromise on”.

If you’re thinking about pets and

children arriving in the short-to-medium

term, think about how these will change

your needs. Will you need to be near to

childcare or schools? Will you need a

fenced property?

“If you’re the sort of person who likes a

good list, we’ve got a useful ‘researching the

property’ checklist on settled.govt.nz that

will help you keep track of all the questions

to ask about a property. This is especially

useful if you’re looking at more than one

property at a time.”

3. DO YOUR HOMEWORK

Don’t let your desperation to find

somewhere blind you to a property’s faults.

“Do as much research as you can about

a property,” that means getting a lawyer

on board to make sure all the paperwork

is in order and to help you understand if

there are any issues. We also recommend

getting a qualified building inspector who

has professional indemnity insurance to

prepare a comprehensive report on the

property.”

If you’re worried about paying for this

kind of report before you make an offer

(due to a lack of time or funds), you can

make them a condition of your offer.

Remember that paying for good advice is

an investment that will buy you more peace

of mind than a quick once-over by a mate.

4. RECOGNISE YOUR LIMITS

Buying a ‘doer-upper’ is a Kiwi tradition,

especially for first-home buyers, but we’re

not all blessed with the right skills. Factor

this in before you make an offer on a

‘renovator’s dream’.

“Be honest with yourselves about how

much DIY you can really do, especially if

you’ve got pets and kids”.

“Getting professionals in to help will

cost more, but it will also make the process

faster. It may also be better in the long term

when it comes to selling the property if any

work has been done properly with the right

consents.”

information on buying or selling, check

Can I trust a seller’s building report?

If you’ve been to an open home recently, or

been browsing the ‘for sale’ adverts, you might

have noticed that some sellers put together

information packs for potential buyers. These

sellers will know that researching a property

takes time and money, and they don’t want this

to be a barrier to a successful sale. They believe

that providing information like a LIM (a Land

Information Memorandum from the local

council) and a building inspection report can help

busy people get an offer on the table. This is great

in theory, but you need to tread carefully all the

same.

If, for example, a real estate agent or seller

gives you a LIM for the property, check carefully

when it was prepared. A LIM is a summary of

all the current property information held by the

different departments at a council at the time. It

contains details of council consents for any work

done, how much the rates are and information

on any geographic hazards that might have an

impact on the property, such as subsidence. Bear

in mind that this information can be reasonably

general – the LIM for most houses in Wellington

will say that they’re located in a high wind area,

for example. If the LIM is dated a couple of weeks

ago, it’s safe to assume it’s reasonably up to date.

If it’s dated a year ago, it’s a good idea to make

further enquiries. Getting a LIM costs money in

most areas (prices vary from council to council).

You can also ask to see the property file held by

the council, which holds other information about

a property, like a site map and original house

plans.

Building reports are a bit trickier. Using a

building report provided by the seller (or the

real estate agent working for them) may seem

like an easy option in the short term. However,

if you buy the property and then find problems

with it that cost a significant amount to fix, you’re

not protected by the building report because the

inspector’s contract is with the seller, not you. The

Real Estate Authority (REA) recommends using

an accredited property inspector who complies

with the New Zealand building inspection

standard 4306:2005. Their written report will

identify any current defects as well as highlight

any urgent and long-term maintenance required.

Look for someone who has a good level of

indemnity insurance, as this will protect you if

you buy the property and then find you need to

fix something that wasn’t in the report. Building

inspections do come at a cost, but we think it’s

worth it to be sure that you’re fully aware of what

you’re signing up for. Depending on the age of the

house you’re looking at don’t necessarily expect

a thin report saying there are no issues. Many

wooden houses in New Zealand are over 50 years

old and there will be things the inspector needs

to point out. Make sure you understand what

normal age-related matters are (that may not be

major issues), compared to significant repairs

needed in the short term to fix a problem. The

report you receive should separate these things

out - if it doesn’t, then ask the inspector about the

difference.

If you end up with a report with a lot of

information about the property it doesn’t mean

you should walk away. Instead, see it as giving

you the opportunity to know what you’re buying.

Doing this before you make an offer means you

are fully aware of what the property may need to

have done to it and your offer figure can reflect

that. However, if you don’t feel comfortable

paying for a building report before you make

an offer, you can make a property inspection a

condition of your offer. Like most things in life,

buying a property will go more smoothly if you

put the work in. If a short cut seems too good to

be true, it usually is.

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

There’s never

been a better

time to sell

Tony Quale of Property Brokers says if you’ve

been considering selling up, now is the time.

With record sales around the country and

demand outweighing supply, Selwyn is firmly

on track for a bumper summer of hot property.

Selling property during a

pandemic

Right now, the property market is crazy.

Sales are solid and there are plenty of cashedup

buyers ready to pounce. And they aren’t

just investors, they’re moving from around

the country—Auckland, Nelson, Dunedin—

because they see the value they’re getting. In

some cases, property is two or three times more

affordable than their home city. The pandemic

has also shown that you can work from

anywhere these days, so living away from your

workplace is more realistic. It’s a seller’s market;

supply is tight with around 300 properties

currently for sale, down from around 450 the

same time last year.

Auctions are win-win

2019 was a steady market. There was plenty of

houses, plenty of choices and it wasn’t unusual

to have plenty of offers (especially for the cream

of the crop) and it could take at least six weeks

to find the right buyer. Fast-forward to 2020,

and houses in Selwyn are frequently under offer

in about three weeks. Tony says: “Auction is

proving a great option for sellers at the moment.

Buyers love the transparency; they like seeing

the competition in the room.” Buyers can also

feel disadvantaged by deadline treaty and feel

like they’re buying blind when they don’t know

where to pitch their price.

Advice for buyers and sellers

Selwyn is likely to remain insulated from any

major market shifts—interest rates will probably

stay low for some time, regional infrastructure

is solid, and thanks to a successful rural sector,

employment opportunities are stable. Tony is

expecting it to stay as a seller’s market until the

new year and says to potential buyers: “Educate

yourself. Go to property buying seminars,

get your finances in order, go to a lot of open

homes and work with a broker or agent that you

trust. And if you’re selling, now is a great time

to extract capital from your house and downsize

or reduce your mortgage.
