Bruce a hero for youth work

• By Matt Slaughter

A few memories stand out for

Senior Constable Bruce Ward

in his 11 years as a police youth

aid officer.

In the 18 months Ward has

worked at Rolleston Police

Station, he estimates he has

supported about 300 youths

from the district.

Ward has also been a

volunteer with Blue Light for 17

years, an organisation separate

from police, which organises

events for young people who

have been abused or affected by

family violence.

His determination to go

above and beyond for hundreds

of young people has paid off –

Ward was named one of three

winners in the Westfield Local

Heroes awards and received

$10,000 to be donated to Blue

Light.

Ward said the money will be

used towards the cost of arranging

additional camps, including

one for Muslim girls traumatised

by the March 15 mosque attacks.

Recently, he attended a camp

in Auckland with youths who

had been directly impacted by

the terror attacks.

One boy who was injured and

whose father and brother were

killed, told Ward when his family

lived in Syria they believed

police killed innocent people.

When Ward asked if his perception

of this had changed, he said

he now trusted police.

A few years ago, through his

police role, he helped to set up

and coach the first XV rugby

team at Cashmere High School.

with $2m

lifestyle

block sale

A lifestyle property with a

sprawling five-bedroom home in

Prebbleton has fetched $2 million

at auction as the property market

continues to boom across the

Canterbury region.

The 3.8ha block features eight

paddocks near Prebbleton Village.

In 2018 it had

a rateable value

of $1.5 million. It

went under the

hammer during

Cup Week.

“It was sold by

the original owners

who had built

Gina Guthrie

it for themselves many years ago –

it was only on the market for two

weeks,” said Ray White Metro real

estate agent Gina Guthrie.

The transaction spearheaded

more than $7 million of sales

generated by 10 properties for

the company’s offices throughout

Canterbury last week.

Mayoral ride for men’s health

NEWS 3

In Brief

• By Matt Slaughter

MAYOR SAM Broughton and

business owner Phil Dean cycled

180km from the mountains to

the sea to raise awareness for

men’s health.

They completed the ride between

Monday and Wednesday

last week.

The journey took them from

the Arthur’s Pass National Park,

past the limestone formations at

Castle Hill, across the patchwork

of Selwyn’s farming heartland,

to the shores of Lake Ellesmere,

the home of Te Taumutu

Rūnanga.

Broughton said men’s heath

is in a difficult place, with men

dying on average six years earlier

than women, “largely for preventable

reasons.”

“Men simply don’t go to the

doctor as often as women –

this challenge is about raising

awareness of the issues that men

should be thinking about and

showing that taking regular

exercise can be fun as well as

lifesaving,’’ he said.

He also wants to encourage

men to understand the health

challenges they might face and

to encourage them reach out for

help.

“Prostate and testicular cancer

are key issues facing all men, but

mental health has a huge impact

“Investing in Selwyn’s

that people can ditch the car and

take their bike to work or play,”

Broughton said.

CAR CRUSHES MAN

A 52-year-old man was killed

when the motor vehicle he

was working on toppled and

crushed him in Rolleston on

Friday afternoon. The man,

whose name has not yet been

released, died at the scene, a

private property on Springston

Rolleston Rd. “He was crushed

by the vehicle, the death has

been referred to the coroner,”

Rolleston police Senior

Sergeant Dean Harker said.

The Lincoln fire service and

St John also attended the

incident.

NO MAORI WARD

Following discussions with

local rūnanga, the district

council has agreed it will not

add a Māori ward for the 2022

and 2025 local body elections.

The district council is required

to consider whether or not to

establish a Māori ward, prior

to its representation review

carried out every six years.

The Representation Review

Committee sought the views

of local rūnanga and during

discussions with Mayor Sam

Broughton. Both Te Taumutu

Rūnanga and Te Ngāi Tūāhuriri

Rūnanga indicated that they do

not support the establishment

of a Māori ward or wards at the

present time.

PROJECTS TO improve flood

The projects include upgrades to

culverts and pipes along Leeston Rd and

they 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 Rd at the

intersection with Station St has been

brought forward, with a detour in place

using Station and Cunningham Sts.

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 St will be completed

from December 4-22, to coordinate

with the other work on Leeston Rd.

Flood protection work for Doyleston

will also be happening from Monday to

upgrade the culvert under Leeston Rd

near Drain Rd. This work will enlarge

the culvert and reduce the risk of

flooding in Doyleston.

A stop/go system will be in place on

Leeston Rd around this site for two

weeks until December 4.

A team is planning to replace the

wastewater pipe along Leeston Rd between

the townships, working from the

Doyleston end towards Leeston.

Work on the Doyleston to Leeston

wastewater pipe is scheduled to take

place until December 18. The work site

will have a low-speed zone in place.

THE NEW walking and

cycleway between Doyleston

and Leeston has opened and

will bring the townships

together.

The Leeston Doyleston Way

will be officially opened on Saturday

during an opening event

at the Leeston Showgrounds

entrance.

Leeston Township Committee

chairman Lloyd Clausen said

the cycle and

walkway 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,” he said.

The 2.1km cycle and

walkway runs between Drain

Rd, Doyleston and Manse

Rd, Leeston and was built

by Leeston-based Johnston

Excavating and Drainage.

It needed additional land from

the main adjoining properties

to fit the pathway in alongside

Leeston Rd, where there were a

number of design challenges to

overcome.

District council transportation

asset manager Andrew Mazey

said the cycle and walkway adds

to the network of cycleways

“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 walkways that we are

Rotary raises

$14,000 for

projects

LINCOLN ROTARY Club has

raised more than $14,000 that

will help fund local and overseas

projects.

The club has been selling

mushroom compost and other

fertilisers for the last nine weeks.

Its members sold 800 bags

and 105 scoops of mushroom

compost, 93 bags of lawn

fertiliser and 67 bags of garden

fertiliser.

The club’s autumn campaign

starts in mid-April 2021.

Organiser Noel Dunlop said:

“We must thank the very generous

people from all around our

district who have supported the

club’s sales of compost for the

last three years, and hopefully

they will continue to support us

when our new campaign starts

next year.”

Said Lincoln Rotary president

Gary Kennett: “The support

from John Smith and his family

has been outstanding, and a big

thank you to Noel Dunlop for

organising the event and our

members for volunteering so

much of their time to bag and

sell the compost – all of the

money raised will be put to good

use helping us support local

communities.”

Kiwi artworks inspire festival

FEATHERED FRIENDS, bugs,

fashion and a huge collection

of Kiwi art is on show at the

Selwyn Arts Festival.

Following a successful festival

last year, the district council

has once again partnered with

three Selwyn art galleries, Te

Huanui Art Gallery in Darfield,

Lakeland Gallery in Leeston and

Down by the Liffey Gallery in

Lincoln, to put on the festival

celebrating art in Selwyn.

This year’s festival features

13 tours, events and workshops

across the district and is running

until November 22.

The week aims to stimulate

people’s understanding of the

arts, with its hands-on sessions

covering everything from chalk

painting to block printing and

enamelling.

It also includes three public

tours of Lincoln University’s collection

of more than 280 pieces

by Kiwi artists, run by curator

Fiona Simpson.

Arts festival organiser and

district council work readiness

and enterprise coordinator Trudi

Fraser said 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 festival events range

from spoon carving to ‘create a

critter’ illustration workshops

and a ‘feathered friends’ themed

Protecting

heritage

gets boost

EFFORTS TO protect the history

of 12 of the district’s 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

European. 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.

The Proposed Selwyn 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 information about how

the proposed district plan plans to

protect heritage items and how to

make a submission, visit the district

plan page. Submissions are open

until 5pm Friday, December 11.

Said Ward: “My goal was always

“If the police can break

down those barriers and look

at the whole restorative justice

approach to youth so that they

get that chance . . . the whole

country’s on a winner,” he said.

Ward said being recognised

as a local hero is a great feeling

but he sees it as an award for the

many police and volunteers who

dedicate their time to Blue Light

and supporting youth.

“There’s no way I could have

ever done this without the team

at Blue Light as supporters.”

He estimates he has worked

with about 60 police officers and

many more volunteers during

his time with Blue Light.

“I’ve been awarded and that’s

great, but do you know what, it’s

an award for Blue Light and the

community organisation.”

His daughters Sarah and

proud of the recognition.

POLICE SAFETY Orders are

immediate orders issued by a

qualified constable at a family

harm episode. PSOs require a

bound person to surrender any

weapons in their control or any

firearm’s licence and vacate any

land or building occupied by a

person(s) at risk regardless of

whether the bound person has

a legal or equitable interest in it.

PSOs can be issued for up to 10

days.

What is a PSO

A PSO provides an additional

tool for police attending

family harm episodes. They

enable frontline officers to take

immediate action to protect

persons at risk of family harm

when an investigation fails to

establish sufficient evidence of an

offence.

A PSO provides time for the

person at risk to seek support

and assistance, including applying

for a temporary protection

order if desired and for the

bound person to cool down and

also seek support and assistance.

A PSO is issued in circumstances

where the police believe

on reasonable grounds that

family violence has occurred or

might occur. The person at risk’s

consent is not required.

A bound person is a person

against whom a PSO has been

issued.

A person at risk is the person

at a family harm episode who

is deemed to be most at risk of

being harmed once officers have

left a scene and for whom police

have issued a PSO to protect.

Also includes children that usually

reside with the person.

The effects of a PSO

Longer effects:

In addition to the immediate

effects of the order, the bound

person must not:

• Engage in behaviour that

amounts to any form of family

violence against a person at risk.

• Make any contact with a person

at risk that is not authorised.

• Encourage any person to

engage in behaviour against or

to contact a person at risk, where

Senior Sergeant Dean

Harker follows his

October 7 article about

family harm and looks at

Police Safety Orders

Dean Harker

Selwyn Police

the behaviour or contact, if engaged

in or made by the bound

person, would be prohibited by

the order.

Breaching a PSO

Although breaching a PSO is

not an offence, the bound person

can still be taken into custody if

a constable believes on reasonable

grounds that the bound

person has refused or failed to

comply with the order or a condition

of the order.

If the bound person absconds

the court may issue a warrant

to arrest the bound person if it

is required to bring them before

the court.

The court may:

• Release the bound person

without any further order.

• Direct the police to issue

another PSO.

• Issue a Temporary Protection

Order (if the person at risk does

not object).

The court does not need an

application from anyone to issue

a TPO.

No criminal convictions result

Reporting family harm

events can be done in a

number of ways:

• Phone 111 when you

need immediate help with

a life-threatening or time–

critical emergency

• By phoning 105 –

when no one is injured

or in danger, there is no

serious risk to people or

property, the crime isn’t still

happening.

• By reporting online at

105.police.govt.nz

• Or by phoning into your

nearest local police station.

LEAVING HIS wife and threeyear-old

daughter behind in Iran

during a war was the hardest

thing Farhad Dastgheib has done

in his life.

Sitting at the Cottage Café, in

Lincoln, drinking a latte, Dastgheib

shares his story of moving

to New Zealand in 1987.

After studying a master’s

degree in Agronomy at the

American University of Beirut

in Lebanon, he worked at Shiraz

University for a few years.

Farhad’s goal was to complete

a doctorate degree in Western

countries.

The Islamic revolution

changed his beloved country

dramatically, not long before he

received acceptance from Lincoln

University.

“I did a little bit of research

and found that this place

they call New Zealand is so far

away, but it has good potential,

so I thought well, I’ll give it a

try.”

The next challenge Dastgheib

faced was leaving his daughter

and wife in Iran, while the

country was at war with its

neighbour, Iraq.

“That made it even harder, not

only missing my family but also

because the country was in war,

it was very worrying.”

Communication was tricky too.

“Every now and then I could

make a telephone call and then

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

that was it,” he said.

Two years later he was relieved

when his wife and daughter

could join him. He smiles at the

memory.

“That was probably the happiest

day of my New Zealand life.

My daughter was just turning

five-years-old when they came

over and I remember a couple of

days after their arrival, I managed

to organise a nice birthday

party for her and she was

thrilled.”

From then onwards, things

started to take shape for Dastgheib

and his growing family,

as they welcomed their second

daughter.

After finishing his PhD, he

lectured at Lincoln University

for about seven years, then continued

working casually for

the university while running

his own agricultural research

consultancy.

Dastgheib found the people in

New Zealand very friendly and

interested in his culture.

“When I spoke to people here,

they said, ‘everybody in New

Zealand came from another

place’ so that made me feel more

welcomed, like I’m not a stranger

in a place where most people

are one group and you are a foreigner.

All those encounters and

comments made me feel more

comfortable.”

Joining the Lincoln Rotary

Club, Dastgheib was able to give

back to the community that

made him feel welcome and

meet more people in Selwyn. He

furthered his knowledge on New

Zealand’s culture, so different

from that of Iran.

He still holds memories of

Iran; the ancient culture and

history he is proud of, the way of

life before the Islamic revolution,

and Iranian food and poetry.

Dastgheib celebrates Nowruz,

the Iranian New Year in March,

gathering with his family around

a table of food set in a traditional

way, remembering each year

gone by. He says it is important

to pass on this tradition to his

daughters and their families

so they can have a feeling of

belonging to a place.

Dastgheib did not initially

plan on staying in New Zealand

for 32 years, but he is glad he did

and feels this is home.

“Coming from another country

where there are different

sorts of problems, it’s not easy

but I had made a choice to live in

a place where I can raise family

in a peaceful and friendly environment.

I found New Zealand

to be a very good example of

that.”

Annual exhibition keeps

art alive in Selwyn

The Annual Selwyn Arts Heart Exhibition sprung to life two weekends ago, on 7 and 8 November

at the Rolleston Community Centre, with 280 people visiting from all over Selwyn and Canterbury.

Two hundred and fifty pieces of art were on display made by Selwyn artists. The exhibition –

supported by the Council’s Creative Communities Fund – is open to artists of any style and age. It

has hosted Canterbury artist Henry Turner’s art since he was 12, musical instruments made out of

cake tins and the Selwyn Embroiderer’s group.

Scheduled for April next year, Selwyn Arts Heart Chairperson Wendy Rockhouse says she will

apply for the Creative Communities Fund again to help cover the venue hire and advertising

expenses, as she does every year.

“Without their funding, we couldn’t run an exhibition. Our exhibitions aren’t money making

exhibitions, they’re held to give emerging artists the opportunity to participate in an exhibition.”

Wendy has been involved with Arts Heart for 16 years. She is a firm believer in art being good for

the soul, which is at the heart of why Arts Heart hold these annual exhibitions, she says.

“I enjoy seeing the new artists that enter and the expression on their face when they’ve sold a

piece of work. It brings the community together, it gives them a sense of wellbeing. Art gives them

an avenue to express themselves, they otherwise might not have,” she says.

To help with that, Arts Heart only take 15% of the commission made from the exhibition.

Visit Arts Heart’s website, artsheart.nz, for more information.

The Creative Communities Selwyn Fund is open for applications until 5pm, Friday 27 November.

Think water sense this summer

Summer is almost here, so it’s time to start thinking smart about

how we use water, so we can all keep enjoying a reliable water

service through the hotter and drier months.

After a drier than usual winter, the National Institute of Water and

Atmospheric Research is predicting a hot, dry summer, meaning

now is a good time to get into good habits and be smart about how

we use our water to help ensure there is no need for restrictions,

Council Infrastructure Group Manager Murray Washington says.

“Water supplies are often placed under pressure during summer as

many people decide to water their lawns and gardens at the same

time. So we’re encouraging people to think about their water use. If

everyone plays their part we should be able to avoid restrictions and

provide water at a good pressure all summer long.”

Being water smart also helps ensure you’re making the most of the

water you use, being good for your garden and getting the best

value from your water rates.

To help this happen, the Council is recommending that people

limit watering to after 9pm, to keep it away from peak usage times

and ensure the sun doesn’t quickly evaporate the water, which will

reduce the effectiveness of the water use.

Tips for managing your water use:

· Check hoses or taps for leaks

· Make sure sprinklers are watering the plants not the driveway,

footpath or buildings

· Use a watering can or hose

· Water for shorter periods, for example watering for three fiveminute

intervals over a couple of hours lets the soil absorb more

water than watering for 15 minutes continuously which causes

water run-off

· Water your garden and lawn every few days rather than every day

· No need to water the berm – let it die off during summer to save

money on your water rates and wear and tear on your lawn mower

When to water your lawn

Don’t irrigate Between 6–9am or 4–9pm daily.

Kirwee Reserve development gets underway

A cricket oval and new lights are coming to Kirwee Reserve as the first part of the Reserve

Development Master Plan gets under way.

Work on the reserve development is due to start on Monday 23 November and will be completed in

March 2021. The work will include upgrading the electrical and irrigation systems to future-proof further

developments, as well as installing the new cricket oval and lighting.

It will also include landscaping changes, the removal of some trees on the west side of the reserve and

the realignment of the No.2 field to free up space for future developments.

The Kirwee Recreation Reserve Management Committee, Kirwee Township Committee and the Council

have worked together on the Master Plan over the last 18 months.

Pupils from Kirwee Model School have also carried out planting of native plants around the boundaries

of the reserve.

Kirwee Recreation Reserve Management Committee Chair Raewyn Feast says the committee is excited and

pleased to see work under way and the development will better cater for the sports users of the reserve.

“It will also complement and maximise open space for community to enjoy the quiet surroundings that

a rural reserve brings.”

Future stages are planned to include sensory and junior play spaces and may involve the further

development of the community hub and a pump track.

Malvern meeting to help keep your property safe

from fire

The Council, Fire and Emergency New Zealand (FENZ), Police, and other organisations are teaming up

again to help people keep themselves and their properties safe from fire.

They are running a community meeting in Darfield to talk about tips for keeping your property safe. The

meeting will be held at the Darfield Recreation Centre at 7pm Thursday 26 November.

It will also cover the McHughs Forest Park fire plan the agencies have put together to protect people in

case of a fire in the forest.

McHughs Forest Park has been identified by FENZ as a potential fire hazard due to its close proximity

to residential properties and businesses in Darfield and the abundance of fuels.

This risk is greatly increased during periods of high wind, particularly a strong nor’west wind.

The meeting will cover evacuation zones and how to prepare for a fire at the forest park. It will also

cover advice for how to prepare properties for the peak fire season and what to do in the event of a fire.

For more information on this you can visit selwyn.govt.nz/mchughs.

Council Emergency Management Manager Al Lawn says the meeting follows on from three successful

community events run by FENZ and supported by Council and Police last year.

“We had a great response last year from people who found it really helpful. These are important

messages to remind people of some simple things that they can do to be prepared and help keep

themselves, their families, pets and others safe in the event of a fire.”

BACKYARD CRITTERS

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in entomology

(insects and other invertebrates). Each week he introduces a

new species found in his backyard at Lincoln. His column aims

to raise public awareness of biodiversity, the variety of living

things around us. Check out the full list of invertebrates found at

www.inaturalist.org/projects/backyard-biodiversity-bugs-in-mylincoln-section

Blowfly important

to our ecosystem

THE BROWN blowfly

is a species loathed by

most, yet it contributes

important ecosystem

services such as pollination

and the decomposition of

dead bodies.

Calliphora stygia was

introduced by early

settlers from south-eastern

Australia. It is also found

in New Guinea and the

Solomon Islands. The fly is

8-12mm in length and has

brownish-yellow hairs on

the abdomen and a grey

thorax.

It is an early coloniser of

dead bodies and therefore

is a useful species in

forensics for determining

time of death in human

corpses.

THe species also cause

flystrike in live sheep

where eggs laid around

dags on sheep and then

maggots can burrow into

the skin and flesh causing

death if not dealt with by

farmers.

Creamy white eggs are

usually laid on flesh and

hatch 18 to 48 hours later,

depending on temperature.

The brown blowfly has

only three larval instars

(maggot stages) allowing

for the species to complete

its lifecycle in 15 days in

ideal conditions.

Interestingly, secretions

from the green tree frog in

Australia cause mortality

of adult and larva of the

brown blowfly.

Maybe this could be

used for future fly control

on sheep.

A&P Show cancellation

blow for businesses

WITH NO Canterbury A&P Show this

year, businesses are hurting as the local

economy faces a potential $30 million

loss.

The three-day A&P Show was called off

this year, and the Canterbury Chamber

of Commerce expects accommodation

operators will feel the pinch the most.

The show normally brings in about

$30 million to the local economy but was

cancelled for the first time since World

War 2.

Chamber of commerce chief executive

Leeann Watson said: “We can’t expect

to go through something unprecedented

like we have with Covid and come out

completely unscathed, so I think that is

understandable that we’ve had a bit of a

dent to the economy.”

But large crowds at horse racing

meetings in Christchurch have helped

ease the economic blow, she said.

“The sell-out crowds to the races has

certainly contributed and hopefully made

up for some of that loss and its great to

see people out and about supporting local

business.”

Watson said the chamber is nervous

about a community Covid-19 outbreak in

the lead-up to Christmas.

She said pre-Christmas sales are needed

to help them get through a tough year.

“What’s on everyone’s minds is making

sure we don’t have any disruptions

between now and Christmas so that

businesses can absolutely maximise that

busy festive time and they need to make

up for those losses at the start of the year.”

Super rugby trophy good as new

• By Chris Barclay

THE INAUGURAL Super

Rugby Aotearoa trophy is

good as new again, after the

completion of restoration work

required after the Crusaders’

boisterous championshipwinning

celebrations.

Created by Otaki carver Bill

Doyle, Tu Kotahi Aotearoa

(Stand as One, New Zealand)

unexpectedly ended back in his

care after it was damaged during

the Crusaders’ post-match antics

after they beat the Highlanders

to claim a symbol representing

five Super Rugby franchises

coming together through the

Covid-19 pandemic.

The Crusaders were criticised

after images depicting chips and

scuffs on the totara base went

viral soon after August 15 clash

and, after making an apologetic

trip to visit Doyle, chief executive

Colin Mansbridge has finally

been reunited with the trophy.

It was returned to the Canterbury

Rugby Football Union

headquarters at Rugby Park by

New Zealand Rugby officials to

coincide with the Farah Palmer

Cup final there on October 31.

Mansbridge had headed a

delegation to return the damaged

trophy to Doyle, with the

group also including captain

Codie Taylor and loose forward

Whetukamokamo Douglas.

“We knew we had to do

something and when we went

up it was clear they wanted to

tell us how they felt. We were

welcomed, there was a challenge,

very fearsome, very emotional,”

Mansbridge said, recalling the

powhiri and haka they received

at Pukekaraka.

He said the exercise emphasised

how the Crusaders had not

treated the trophy with the reverence

it deserved.

“We hadn’t done enough

work on understanding the

significance of this trophy. The

story around it is really quite

special.”

The base represents an

upturned waka to signify the

disruption Covid-19 had on

rugby in 2020 while a patu

pounamu rests on the top – and

temporarily went missing during

the celebrations.

BARCLAY

Doyle also etched a number,

11, on the underside of the base

in recognition of his son Sam, a

former Hurricanes back who was

diagnosed with leukaemia this

year.

Restoring the trophy wasn’t

onerous for Doyle, who was

happy to carry out the work free

of charge.

“It had some nicks and

scratches. I didn’t have to make a

new one. I just cleaned it up and

shaved a bit off here and there

and redid some of the patterns so

it looks good as new again,” he

told Otaki Today.

He did make one request,

however: “I think the players

should understand that it isn’t

just a trophy. It has patterns

on it and it tells a story. That’s

important.”

Mansbridge insisted there was

no issue on that score.

“It was bad form and the whole

organisation learnt from it.

Mansbridge said education

comprised “95 per cent” of the

rehabilitation process with locking

up the trophy after the lap of

honour too simplistic a solution if

the Crusaders also won next year.

“Imagine if that’s all we did?

it’s easy to tell the manager to go

lock it in a cupboard,” he said.

For now the trophy is secure

in the CRFU foyer though it may

eventually gain wider exposure.

“Our trophies do spend a bit of

time in the community in different

environments but we’ve got

so many of them now people get

a bit bored with it,” Mansbridge

said.

“But there’s a story about that

trophy now, and that’s a story

about restoration as much as

anything. There will be a time

and a place when it will be seen.”

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

etiring after 23 years in sports role

Dedicated Primary

Sports Canterbury

sports director Lyn

Miles is poised to blow

the final whistle on her

association with the

role she has occupied

since 1997

• By Chris Barclay

THE FINISH line is in sight for

Lyn Miles, her race is run once

she watches hundreds of kids

circle the athletics track at Nga

Puna Wai one last time.

Miles, the sports director for

Primary Sports Canterbury,

signs off at the organisation’s

athletics championships on December

2, the event marking the

end of a serious leisure pursuit

that started in 1997.

Back then Miles, a former

teacher at Selwyn House School

and development officer for Netball

New Zealand, had six sports

to organise events for – now the

calendar covers 32 disciplines

from your stock-standard rugby

and football to boccia and hiphop

dancing.

Though netball and athletics

are the 72-year-old’s forte, Miles

has had to absorb the rules of

every sport she co-ordinates

competitions for with korfball

and ultimate frisbee the latest.

FINAL WHISTLE: Primary Sports Canterbury sports director Lyn Miles will be retiring from

the role she took on since 1997.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

“I check every year to see if

there’s any (rule) changes or they

may come about because we’ve

been to an event and we see

something’s not working quite as

it should be or could be,” she said.

Take slow pitch softball and

touch rugby.

LEGACY: The annual primary schools cross-country event,

one of many organised by Miles over the years.

Miles noticed some sly softball

teams were deliberately pitching

out of an opponent’s reach to

limit the amount of runs they’d

concede in a 15min inning,

knowing the scores were tallied

at the end of the game.

“We changed the rule so the

batting team also supplied the

pitcher so the kids can actually

get through as fast as they can to

get some runs.”

In touch rugby, girls were awarded

two points for a try, double the

lads, so they weren’t left out.

“We give the girls two points

otherwise the boys just hog the

ball. Now they’re more keen on

giving the girls the chance to

score a try.

“Little things like that might

make a difference when it comes

to primary school kids wanting

to play sport.”

While taking part is obviously

key, Miles is old-school in a

way when asked if winning is

important.

“My views on that are probably

not what they should be. I

believe children do need competition.

They actually like to

win,” she said, adding: “I think it

should be a mixture of winning

and trying.

“We do cross-country and it’s

just amazing how many parents

take children all around the

country to compete at primary

school level. A few may keep

doing it at high school but a lot

of them won’t because they’re

pushed so much by their parents.

I don’t believe in that.”

Miles has naturally witnessed

the excesses of overzealous parents

and realises abuse is part of

the game, though behaviour has

improved.

“We haven’t had a lot of

problems (recently) because the

schools are quite good at dealing

with it now. If it really gets bad

I go to the sports co-ordinator

and then maybe the principal.

A few years ago we had a school

that banned parents from going

to any of the events. The school

stepped up for us.”

Occasionally the participants

also need a word in their ear,

with Miles happy to lay down

the law.

“If the children are at fault,

we’ll stop a game and tell them

we won’t continue unless they

change. We haven’t had a lot of

that lately, hopefully that’s because

the schools are educating

the children before they get to

events.”

Miles, who became a member

of the New Zealand Order of

Merit in 2010 for services to

netball, nominated the increased

interest in duathlon as a highlight

of her tenure.

“I also enjoy orienteering

because kids that are not excellent

at sport but just want to do

something . . . it gives them the

chance. So does bowls.”

Given she has seen thousands

of kids go through their paces,

there were bound to be a couple

who matured into household

names, Miles remembered a

couple of recognisable internationals.

“I went to Chisnallwood Intermediate

and Ryan Crotty accepted

one of the rugby plaques.

I remember (former Silver Fern)

Anna Stanley (nee Rowberry)

playing netball.”

Templeton-based Miles is

succeeded by Michael Wilson

from the Selwyn Sports Trust,

though she will stay on to ease

his transition.

She will continue to umpire

in the Selwyn Netball Centre

competition and groom her successors

in that role as well. Over

summer she plans to officiate

athletics.

Those gigs maintain a life-long

love of sport, but she will still

miss her full-time job.

“I’ll miss the smiles on the

kids’ faces, the interaction with

everybody. It’s so good to go to

a venue like Hagley Park and

think ‘well I made this possible’,”

she said.

“What I won’t miss is looking

at the weather every day, and

having to decide whether we

have things on or not.”

With Christmas

approaching and the

probability a pork roast is

on the menu a practice

run could well be useful.

This is a delicious recipe

using wine, oranges,

garlic and cloves to form

the sauce for a pork pot

roast. Serve with a mash

of swedes, potatoes and

spring onions, and a green

leafy salad. Finish with an

easy strawberry trifle for

dessert

Pot roast of pork with

cloves and oranges

Serves 4

Ingredients

1kg pork shoulder

1 to taste salt and freshly ground

pepper

2 tbsp olive oil

2 garlic cloves

1 bay leaf

6 cloves

5 sprigs oregano

1 cup dry white wine

2 oranges

Directions

Preheat the oven to 140 deg C.

Cut the rind off the piece of pork

and sprinkle with salt, unless the

meat has been pre-salted and a

good grinding of black pepper.

Heat the oil in an enamelled

cast-iron casserole pot and add

the pork. Brown on all sides.

Lower the heat and add the

garlic, bay leaf, cloves, oregano

and wine.

Cover tightly and put into the

oven. Cook for about 1½ hours

until the meat is fork-tender. Remove

from the oven and lift the

meat out on to a warmed platter.

Cover with foil and put back

in the turned-off oven to keep

warm. To make the sauce, put

the casserole pot over a low heat

and use a spatula to scrape any

brownings from the sides of the

pot into the liquid.

If there is less than about a cup

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Not too early to be thinking of Xmas dinner

of liquid in the pot, add a little

more water. Strain into a small

pot. If there is a lot of oil on the

surface, skim some off, but leave

behind a few spoonfuls to enrich

the sauce.

Use a sharp knife to peel the

oranges, including all the pith,

then cut out the segments one by

one, leaving the membranes and

core behind.

Use your hand to squeeze the

core over the pot of sauce to

extract any remaining orange

juice.

Bring the sauce to the boil,

whisk to emulsify the oil, then

taste and correct the seasoning.

Drop in the orange segments.

Spoon some of the sauce and

orange segments over the meat

on the platter and put the rest

into a sauceboat.

Strawberry trifle

Serves 8

Ingredients

3 punnets strawberries

3 tbsp sugar

½ cup water

1 sponge cake, cut into fingers

3 tbsp Grand Marnier

6 eggs

160g sugar

600ml milk

1 vanilla bean

300ml cream

Wednesday November 18 2020 Selwyn Times

FOOD 29

Directions

Select about 12 of the best berries

for the top. Put the rest in a

saucepan with 3 tablespoons of

sugar and the water.

Bring to a gentle simmer, then

cook for about 2min. Place the

cut sponge pieces in the bottom

of a clear glass bowl.

Add the Grand Marnier and

allow it to soak in. Ladle in the

strawberries and juice.

To make the custard, beat the

egg yolks and sugar until light

and thick.

Heat the milk and vanilla bean

in a heavy-based saucepan until

almost boiling. Tip the hot milk

onto the egg mixture in a bowl

and stir well to combine.

Rinse the pan that the milk

was heated in, return it to the

heat and strain the egg, sugar and

milk mixture into it. Carefully

reheat the custard, stirring constantly

until the mixture thickens

enough to coat the spoon.

Do not let this boil, as the mixture

will curdle. If the mixture

starts to curdle around the edges,

immediately remove from the

heat and whisk vigorously until

smooth.

Once the custard is cool,

tip it over the strawberries.

Finally, lightly whip the cream

then spread it over the custard.

Decorate with reserved halved

strawberries. Chill before serving.

Brighten up as the

sun comes out

The sun is out, summer is on its way

and it feels great to be alive. It is also the

perfect time to brighten up your own

with just a few simple touches.

The keys to a summer make-over to

have fun, creating a vibrant look but also

include all the senses by choosing from

a huge range of candles and diffusers.

Citrus or tropical scents help set the

mood for summer or you might prefer

florals, such as rose and lilac.

Warmer weather calls for lighter

window treatments, so take down the

heavy drapes and replace them with

something that says summer. Opting for a

bamboo look or sheer gauze curtains give

you both privacy but still allows light and

air circulation.

Bringing in natural elements helps lift

the tone of your space, making it feel

bright and airy. Try bringing in a few

woven baskets to stash jandals or kids’

outside gear. Bring in natural wood

elements like cool candlesticks or bowls

to freshen up your dining room table or

driftwood as part of a coastal look.

Tropical brights and designs also speak

summer even if it just features on a couple

of cushions for the couch or outdoor

furniture or in a new duvet or throw.

Add green by creating your own indoor

garden with a fresh display of pot plants

inside. Ferns and palm trees can refresh

any room bringing the outside in and

creating a contrast to plain walls. Have

fun with the pots and use a different

range of sizes to add interest.

A new shower curtain can also brighten

and add a new design dimension to your

bathroom without a big investment in

cost. Adding towels that match your new

shower curtain will change the look of

your bathroom almost effortlessly.

Outdoor lights help create a wonderful

mood and atmosphere to your outdoor

space. Solar powered they can be

anything from lights guiding people

up a path way to a dazzling display of

twinkling fairy lights in a tree. Think

about some other options like uplights

in certain spaces to really give a feel

of occasion and magic when you are

entertaining outside.

Summer decorating can be fun and a

great excuse to update your décor without

going into debt. A few plants, a new duvet

cover and cushions can make a huge

impact of your home.

Swimming pools

make a big splash

your own back yard. For a locally owned

five metres to 12 metres in length with a

variety of widths, colours and shapes. There

really is a pool for any site.

an extended living space where family and

friends can relax, Julie says.

It takes around five days to install a pool

and the finishing touches can take from four

to eight weeks depending upon the design.

Not only does Lagoon Pools install the

pool, they can offer the complete package

Potato dumping ripples across the planet

European potato dumping is as

damaging as importing milk into

New Zealand for fifty cents a bottle,

Sheffield mixed-crop grower Chris

Judd says.

The Ministry for Business

Innovation and Employment

(MBIE) trade remedies team is

investigating the “proven threat” of

surplus frozen fries being imported

into New Zealand.

The ministry’s move was based

on information that Potatoes New

Zealand (PNZ) provided in its

Pandemic Industry Recovery Plan.

Potatoes New Zealand says the

disruption of supply chains, and

particularly sales to hospitality,

by virtue of Covid-19 restrictions,

has led to huge surpluses of frozen

fries in major production centres,

particularly the European Union

(EU). This has led to extraordinary

surplus in frozen potato chips and

processing tubers in the EU.

In September, when Potatoes New

Zealand made its recovery plan

application to MBIE, the surplus in

Europe was 1.5M tonnes. By November

it was estimated at 2.6M tonnes - and

growing as a result of Covid lockdowns.

“The concern for the NZ industry

remains that along with the existing

domestic impact of the pandemic

crisis, any profiteering activity from

overseas exporters, will in turn cause

further damage to the New Zealand

potato-growing and potato-processing

industries,” Potatoes New Zealand says.

Chris Judd grows process potatoes for

Watties for use in baby food. Dumping

would distort all sorts of New Zealand

contracts and markets, he said.

While he was not a large grower, product

dumping would make it harder for

everyone to survive, he said.

“Every container of chips that comes in

is going to impact what’s sold and what

gets processed. Processors will say ‘right,

your contract’s up. Say you’ve got 200

tonnes left on your paddock. They’ll just

say, ‘sorry we can’t have that because that

this is our contract and we can’t move the

rest of it’.”

Once dumping started, growers would

soon struggle to contract enough crop to

be viable.

“If these bigger operators can’t grow

chips, they’ll be sneaking around trying

to grab everyone else’s bits and pieces to

make up their area,” he said.

Ten growers might have 100ha each,

which they needed to be economic.

“If they get a 20% price reduction

because there’s potatoes coming in,

bigger growers will go hunting for

everyone’s produce and they’ll have

to undercut it to get the contract. All

that does is reduce prices.”

New Zealand was already well

stocked with domestic potatoes,

he said. “There’s probably enough

freezers with New Zealand chips

in them at the moment, so for

the government to allow that

(European) stuff to come in is just

ridiculous. It’s like bringing milk in

for fifty cents a bottle.”

Inevitably, offshore dumping would

force local growers to drop prices and

dump product themselves. “The spud

game’s tough enough as it is. But once

you get under pressure from outside

entries like that…There’s grower jobs,

there’s transport, there’s fertilizer. It

just goes on for ever and ever.”

The value of the New Zealand

potato industry value is just over $1

billion dollars a year, with processed

potatoes accounting for 55% of that value.

All but 15% of all fries eaten in New

Zealand are grown here and half of NZgrown

fries produced are exported, at a

total value of $100 million

Potatoes New Zealand understands it

may take up to six months for MBIE to

investigate the European dumping claim.

The U.S and Australia have also called for

duties or actions to limit what they see as

under-priced EU fry imports.

Greendots restoration

creates native ties

From calls of “crazy” to planting 100,000

native seedlings – Te Ara Kākāriki

Greenway Canterbury has come a long

way in just over a decade.

The growing greenbelt corridor recently

marked another special moment at Joyce

Reserve in Glentunnel as the 100,00th

seedling in Selwyn went to soil since the

district-wide project started in 2009.

Te Ara Kākāriki Greenway Canterbury

Trust set out to create a series of ‘Greendots’,

or small forests, linking the mountains to

the sea and Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere,

providing habitat for indigenous birds and

other wildlife. The 100th Greendot site in

the district is expected to be planted by the

end of this year.

The trusts and guests including Selwyn

mayor, Sam Broughton, and Minister

for Conservation, Eugenie Sage, last

month planted five tōtara to celebrate

progress. Te Ara Kākāriki trust Greenway

Canterbury Trust chair, Craig Pauling,

said it was a story of vision, collaboration

and perseverance, as originally most

landowners and potential project funders

thought the idea of planting new native

was a bit crazy. The Canterbury Plains has

less than 0.5% native coverage, so renewal

looked an insurmountable challenge.

“Funders only wanted to protect

remnants, we wanted to add to them, to

recreate the corridor that was there in the

past,” Pauling said.

Sage said getting to 100,000 trees was

the result of an awful lot of hard work and

she acknowledged the contribution of

landowners, nurseries and everyone else

involved in planting and subsequent care

of the sites.

Glentunnel School has been working

with Te Ara Kākāriki at the Joyce Reserve

Greendot for the past four years, building

on the work of the Coalgate/Glentunnel

Reserve Committee. The result of their

combined labour is a mix of young and

established native plantings, making for

a stunning recreation and picnic spot

just off State Highway 77 beside the

Waikirikiri/Selwyn River.

Glenntunnel students are among 16

Selwyn schools taking part in this year’s

Kids Discovery Plantout Programme –

a series of activities teaching children

about invertebrates and pest control,

for example. The plantout scheme is a

partnership between Te Ara Kākāriki,

Enviroschools and Lincoln University.

Te Ara Kākāriki also hosts three

public planting days at a selection of

Greendot sites each spring, as well as a

small number of weekday plantings with

corporate or staff groups.

Landowners looking to restore part of

their property back to native forest in

2021 are encouraged to apply to Te Ara

Kākāriki for native planting assistance.

Help is available to any individual or

group with a piece of land at least 1100m/

sq that can grow native plants.

GARDENING

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

CARE: Herbs thrive fully exposed to the sun. Hedges can be trimmed in November.

Now is the time to get busy in the garden

NOVEMBER HAS got to be one

of the most enjoyable months for

gardeners with prolific growth

everywhere, lashings of colour

and scents and plenty of tasks to

keep busy.

Houseplants

Continue houseplant fertiliser

applications throughout November.

Take note of water requirements

of the houseplants, as temperatures

rise so does the need

for increased watering. Flowering

chrysanthemums are now available

if you require a spectacular

display of flowers indoors.

Purchase them as their flowers

are just beginning to open. Check

plants regularly for any sign of insects

or fungal diseases, if caught

early these should not be a major

problem.

Vegetable garden

All summer vegetables should

be in active growth by now including

beans, beetroot, cabbage,

celery, corn, cucumber, courgettes,

lettuce, peas, pumpkin,

radish, spring onions, spinach,

tomatoes, silverbeet.

Ensure young, developing

plants are well-watered, but be

weary of overwatering. Continue

to remove laterals and tie up

tomato plants. Stagger plantings

to extend harvesting time. Apply

side dressings of vegetable fertiliser,

especially to those ‘grossfeeders’

e.g. sweet corn. Mulch

around plants with pea straw to

FRESH: All summer vegetables should now be in active

growth.

improve soil water retention and

help reduce infestations of weeds.

Summer flowering

annuals

Flowering annuals will now be

in vigorous growth and producing

early flowers. These include

Alyssum, ageratum, arctotis,

asters, cornflowers, cosmos, marigolds,

nemesias, phlox, portulacas,

and zinnias.

Water regularly, especially when

young seedlings are first planted.

Summer flowering annuals can

also be very successfully grown in

large pots or containers.

Herb garden

As with vegetables and flowering

annuals, all new season herbs

should be growing vigorously by

mid-November.

It is now safe to plant basil as

the chance of a very late frost is

highly unlikely. Herbs thrive in

a ‘fine’ well-drained soil, fully

exposed to all day sun.

Fruit trees

All fruit trees are in full

growth mode in November so

continue to apply side dressings

of fruit tree fertiliser to all

trees, especially newly planted

specimens.

Irrigate deeply, mulch to

reduce water loss suppress

weeds. As mulch breaks down it

will eventually improve the soil

around the fruit trees as well.

Strawberries

Strawberry plants should be

producing masses of ripe berries

in November and plants require

minimal care so more time for

eating them! Cover strawberry

beds with bed netting now as

somehow birds always seem to

find strawberry patches!

Roses

Another rewarding month for

rose growers in the home garden.

Many varieties are at their best

in November! Continue deadheading

finished flowers and apply

rose fertiliser every 4-6 weeks

until mid-December. Spread

compost around roses to encourage

healthy root growth.

Hedges

November is the perfect time

for the first new season’s trim of

hedges.

A ‘little and often’ technique

is recommended for maintaining

a dense, bushy hedge. This is

especially important with newly

planted hedges. Water deeply and

fertilise regularly to encourage

vigorous growth.

Lawns

November is the last ‘safe’

month to sow a new lawn or to

patch up areas of an existing lawn

before it becomes too hot and dry.

Lawn fertiliser can be applied to

encourage strong grass growth.

Water immediately after spreading

the fertiliser. Irrigate lawns

when required to help maintain

consistent grass growth.

Ornamental trees and

shrubs

Prune young trees to encourage

the development of a strong

framework that will later support

mature growth. Fertilise all plants

regularly with general garden

fertiliser.

Mulch to prevent water loss

over the hot summer months and

help keep weeds at bay.

Sound of thunder from V8 SUV

THERE’S LITTLE doubt that

the way we view automobiles is

changing with a global demand

for fuel efficiency and fewer

emissions.

Most manufacturers are

looking at ways to address those

issues, and that’s showing with

an ever-increasing number of

hybrids and electric vehicles

reaching our market.

I’m not rebelling against the

electric revolution, but the reality

is I’ll find it hard to give up my

desire for internal combustion

engines, and the bigger and

more powerful they are, the

better.

Mercedes-Benz has already

introduced an electric vehicle

down under and the company

is indicating more will arrive en

masse.

Where that leaves its big cars,

and the big engines, I don’t know,

but in the interim I can be very

grateful that I’ve sampled some

of the best engines to come out of

Germany, as well as some of the

most powerful.

My latest foray into the highperformance

driveline was in

the AMG GLC 63S sport utility

vehicle, a mid-size wagon that

also comes in coupe-like form,

both sharing the 4-litre, twinturbocharged

V8.

It’s a monster in terms of power

outputs – 375kW and 700Nm –

the latter available all of the way

from 1750rpm to 4500rpm and,

if you take into account peak

power is on tap all of the way

to 6250rpm, it’s no wonder I’m

hooked.

The GLC is a super-quick,

high top speed wagon, and you’d

expect nothing less from the

performance arm of Mercedes-

Benz. AMG claims a 3.8sec

standstill to 100km/h acceleration

time along with a governed

250km/h top end.

These figures are fantastic,

making the GLC one of the

quickest cars I’ve driven, and it

does so in a way that you know

you are travelling fast; even in

standard mode the engine is

quite audible, it bellows out of

the exhaust and if you want extra

sound a console-mounted pushbutton

will increase the decibels.

The 63S fairly thunders under

acceleration.

This engine is utilised in a wide

FUNCTIONAL: A cavernous load area lies under the tailgate

of the GLC 63S.

MERCEDES-BENZ GLC AMG 63S: Speed and acceleration which is uncharacteristic for a

sport utility vehicle.

range of Mercedes-Benz product,

and in some cases it drives

through to the rear wheels

only, delivering a true sports

car feel, but the GLC has drive

to all four wheels and that adds

an element of reassurance. As a

driver, you know that delivering

that power to the ground is going

to be channelled in a fashion

that won’t catch you out with

oversteer.

If you also take into account

the huge 21in wheels with

massive tyres then grip levels

are high. Even so, on my highcountry

evaluation drive there

were a couple of instances

when I felt traction control

complaining, such as powering

out of a corner.

Drive is channelled through

a nine-speed automatic

transmission, and there are

varying drive modes that the

driver can select or individualise

to suit his/her driving style.

Even in standard mode the

engine management protocols

are structured so that the driver

can enjoy the V8 experience at

all times; it rumbles and burbles

away, tantalising with its response

and urgency.

• Price – Mercedes-Benz

AMG GLC 63S, $184,400

• Dimensions – Length,

4744mm; width,

2090mm; height,

1577mm

• Configuration – V8,

four-wheel-drive, 3982cc,

375kW, 700Nm, ninespeed

automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 3.8sec

• Fuel usage – 12.2l/100km

Not that it is a handful in lowspeed

situations, the 63S

has perfect inner-city manners,

the combination of brawn

and beauty is an engineering

masterpiece.

The GLC is a true SUV, it

has a cavernous rear load area,

and for five adults there is

comfort in abundance. It is

also built in the traditional

Mercedes-Benz style that is high

in luxury and specification,

sharing the look and feel with a

layout that is systematic across

most of the Mercedes-Benz

range.

Column space doesn’t allow

comprehensive detailing of the

features and fitment. However,

it’s fair to say the GLC wants for

little and the interior is state-ofthe-art

with all of the electronic

goodies you’d want in a car

that sits towards $200k. Yes, if

you add in a lot of the options

from Mercedes-Benz’s extensive

catalogue of extras, the base price

tag of $184,400 could be well

stretched.

However, for my money the

pleasure to be had from the

fabulous bi-turbo engine would

be well worth the outlay. And

don’t go believing that it is going

to overly create havoc with the

environment, as, for all of its

brute force, the GLC 63S has

respectable fuel usage figures.

AMG claims a 12.2-litre per

100km combined cycle average,

which sits well with the trip

computer’s 12.8l/100km figure

during my time in the car.

I know for certain the drive

in the GLC 63S won’t be my

last in a V8, but I do know such

opportunities will become fewer

and further between.

For those who feel like me, now

is the time to buy before they face

extinction.

IS THIS THE BEST LAND IN THE AREA?

4ha 3 1 1

It simply doesn’t get any better than this!

545 East Maddisons Road is a truly unique property.

Four hectares of land directly opposite the Lemonwood

School, located on premium land, on the town boundary.

This is an incredible location – adjacent to high quality

housing many of which were the show homes.

Opportunities to acquire large premium blocks of land are

diminishing fast. This land is currently zoned Rural Inner

Plans but it is also in the Urban Growth?

Features:

An established, owner operated business, is currently

operating from the 240m² (approximately) workshop on

the property. Other buildings include the spacious packing

shed, the relocated three bedroom cottage and a three bay

enclosed pole shed. There is an immense amount of storage.

What is the potential for this property? We encourage you to

do your own investigations into what could be an enviable

investment.

The owners are ready to embark on another project. Visit

one of the frequent open homes or contact Shona to view by

appointment.

Prepare

for Summer

Throw open the windows and doors and

invite the sunshine in with a few important

chores to get you set for summer.

With a few hot days last month, we are

reminded that summer days are not far

behind.

Now is the time to prepare our homes,

so by the time summer rolls around we can

sit back and enjoy the fruits of our labour.

Start indoors by throwing the windows

and doors open to let in some fresh air.

Clean the windows inside and out so you

can admire your view across your garden.

Replace your cosy winter flannel sheets

and heavy duvet covers for lighter linens

with a high thread count, and refresh your

colour scheme with throws and scatter

cushions in lighter, brighter hues for

summery appeal.

While you’re in the bedroom, reorganise

your wardrobe by packing away winter

outfits to make room for summer dresses

and sandals. Dry cleaning woolen items

before putting them into storage, and any

cotton and synthetic fibres you store with

them, will prevent moth damage.

If you haven’t aired your guest bedroom

since last year, this is a good opportunity

to refresh this one as you have with the

other bedrooms to save the mad rush as

Christmas draws near.

Refresh bathrooms with new towels

in a splash of vibrant colour, ventilate by

throwing the windows open and adding a

plant beside the sink to filter the air. Look

for plants with high purification levels, like

snake plants, spider plants, English ivy and

small-leafed rubber plants.

Next room of attack is the kitchen.

Empty out the freezer and defrost it

completely. Now is the perfect time to

throw out anything that has been in there

over a year (less time for ground meat,

chicken and leftovers), as frozen food

loses flavour and texture over time, and

will make precious room for ice cream

and meat for the barbie. Ensure your

fridge is in top working order by giving

the condensing coils a thorough clean to

remove dirt and lint.

With barbeque season beckoning, now is

the time to make sure you have all the BBQ

essentials and that your BBQ has a full gas

tank and is clean. If you have a charcoal

grill, it pays to invest in an inexpensive

chimney starter to quickly and safely

light the coals, as using lighter fluid can

permeate the taste of your food.

While you are uncovering the barbie

from the dark depths of the garage, you

can say goodbye to the snow chains,

shovels and skis, and make way for all your

summer gardening and entertaining gear.

Dust off the outdoor furniture and

organise your garage, so when the next hot

day arrives you’ll be all set to grab what

you need to hit the beach.

Give patios a good scrub with a broom

and hot soapy water or hire a water blaster

from your local home centre to do the job.

While you are

uncovering the

barbie from the

dark depths of the

garage, you can say

goodbye to the snow

chains, shovels and

skis, and make way

for all your summer

gardening and

Outdoor rooms

Just because an outdoor space doesn’t have

walls, that doesn’t change the basic principles

applied to any design project inside your home.

With a few simple

fundamentals to guide you,

you’ll soon see how easy

it is to create a beautiful

outdoor room you’ll love entertaining

and relaxing in throughout the warm

days and balmy nights of summer.

Key considerations include style,

function, lighting and mood. Remember

that your outdoor room ought to be

an extension of the look you’ve created

within your home, which reflects your

personality and lifestyle.

Focal point

Beginning, as with any room of the

home, a space must always have a focal

point to anchor the space. For some, this

may be a bar or barbeque area, a large

dining table, or a chill-out zone with

couches or loungers.

Outdoor fireplaces are becoming

more and more popular as our living

areas blend seamlessly between indoor

and outdoor entertaining throughout

the changing of the seasons. They can

serve not only a practical purpose of

somewhere to gather around to warm

as the day turns to dusk and the nights

get shorter, an outdoor fire can make

a stunning feature or room divider for

any outdoor living area. Water features,

like a pond with beautiful koi fish, can

also serve as a great outdoor focal point,

creating tranquil environment in which

to relax and unwind in, or create a

meditative Japanese rock garden which

your outdoor area can overlook.

In the zone

If you already have a large terrace or

outdoor area, a blank canvas is a great

place to start. If you have a particularly

large outdoor area, dividing the space

into zones makes for a more functional

and aesthetically pleasing space. You can

do this by using a number of different

elements, such as contrasting flooring

materials or by creating different levels

of decking. However, if you’re after a

seamless indoor/outdoor flow or wish to

create the illusion of more space, use the

same flooring materials indoors and out.

Divisions can also be made with the

clever positioning of furniture. Use

modular seating to create walls and

separate spaces. Plants are a cost effective

and eco-friendly way to create divisions

between zones, and are also an ideal way

to camouflage ugly walls, create privacy

and soften sharp angles. Living walls, an

ever-increasingly popular vertical plant

system, can be either freestanding to

create different outdoor areas and can

be on wheels to easily transform your

outdoor space at a moment’s notice. Play

with height and scale with various

types of planters, whether you use

hanging planters to draw the eye upwards,

or oversized planter pots to add drama.

Go with the flow

Creating a great indoor/outdoor flow is

easily created by opening up your kitchen

with bifold doors or windows to create a

servery or bar area for easy entertaining.

If you are building your home from the

ground up, you may want to design an

outdoor room which lies at the epicentre

of the building, with rooms opening onto

the communal courtyard with bifold

doors.

Function over form

Consider what you intend to use your

outdoor space for. If you don’t plan on

eating outside, there’s no need for a dining

table, but buy some comfortable outdoor

seating instead. If you only intend on

sitting outdoors during the evening,

then don’t waste money on awnings and

umbrellas, and invest the money in an

outdoor fireplace which you will actually

use.

Atmosphere

Create unique and personalised outdoor

decor with textiles and homewares from

your travels or your favourite antique

shop, or make your own shell garlands or

wreaths from beach holidays. String up

fairy lights or lanterns to create a festive

mood in the evenings.

Buying off the

plan – what you

need to know

Buying off plan requires all the same due diligence

and care as buying an existing property.

Buying a brand new home off the plans

can seem extremely attractive, especially

if you’re struggling to find a property that

meets all your needs. If you decide to go

down this route it is absolutely crucial

to enter the process with your eyes wide

open. Reading the fine print – starting

with the photo caption advising you that

‘some images are an artist’s impression’ –

is just the beginning.

There are many benefits to buying off

a plan. Not only are you signing up for

a new home that should meet all the

latest building specifications, but you are

buying something at a set price with an

initially low outlay. A long settlement

period (while the development is

completed) gives you time to get your

finances in order. In theory, if the market

remains buoyant then the property will

increase in value over this period so you

will be getting more than what you paid

for at the outset.

However, the process is not without

risks, says chief executive of the Real

Estate Agents Authority (REAA).

“If the market falls, then you may

Come on over... and be inspired.

encounter problems if you try to sell.

Also, the property may not meet your

expectations and the build may take

longer than expected. You are entirely

reliant on the developer, so you are at

risk if their business fails and/or the

development is on-sold to another

company.”

Buying off plan requires all the same

due diligence and care as buying an

existing property.

“Start by putting in some solid

research”.

“Don’t be swayed by pre-sale sweeteners

and flash show homes that may bear

little resemblance to the actual finished

product. Do your homework about the

developer and the construction firm –

find out what their track records are,

examine their credentials and look at

any previous developments they have

been involved in. Remember that you

are giving these people your hard-earned

money and you need to be confident that

they will deliver the goods.”

Generally, buying off a plan means

providing a deposit upfront to secure the

property. The remainder of the money

is due on completion, but you will have

to prove that you have the finance from

the outset. While the long lead-in period

provides time to save money, there is

also a risk that interest rates may go up

or lending criteria may change. Discuss

these issues with your bank or financial

advisor to make sure you are prepared if

the situation changes.

“If a real estate agent is involved

in selling properties in a proposed

development, they can help you navigate

the process”.

It’s also important to engage a lawyer

to help you understand all the details of

the sale and purchase agreement and any

covenants on the title. These may extend

to the ‘look and feel’ of a development or

new subdivision, and include restrictions

regarding fences, landscaping, exterior

colour and cladding choices and may

even include car parking rules for you or

your visitors.

Developers will approach selling off

Promote your

Showhome throughout

Christchurch and the

Selwyn District

plans in many different ways. Some

contracts are designed to allow the buyer

to choose their own floor plan; others

may allow the developer to change the

layout without checking first. Every

detail of the property, from the expected

timeline to the finishes used, must be

spelled out in the contract.

It is vital to get legal advice before

signing anything.

“If you don’t go through these details

very carefully before you sign you may

be in for some unpleasant surprises later.

Remember to check the contract to see

if there is a ‘sunset clause’ that specifies

what will happen if the development is

not finished in time. Don’t forget to ask

what will happen if the developer goes

into liquidation and the project is sold to

another company. The last thing you want

is for your dream home, not to mention

your deposit, to vanish into thin air.”

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

Award-winning

quality builds

in Selwyn

‘The Wanaka’ is the show stopper

of the Architectural series and

the most downloaded plan.

The team at Hallmark Homes build high-quality homes

at affordable prices. And they’re homes that are accessible to

everyone from first home buyers to those taking on a oncein-a-lifetime

architectural build. Whatever your stage in the

building process, working with someone you trust is a must.

Building during a pandemic

recovery

Since the COVID lockdown, and the relaxed lending

restrictions that resulted, there’s been a huge demand for new

home builds. Throw in the HomeStart grant and it’s more

affordable than ever to step onto the property ladder—with

a brand-new home. Hallmark Homes offers tiered plans

that are matched to your budget so there are no financial

blowouts and, with over 30 years in home building, they

know what they are doing. When asked why they are so

trusted by their clients, Sales Manager Esther Bonne says:

“Because we listen.” They have a project management team

who make your life as easy and as stress-free as possible.

With online programs designed for access anytime,

anywhere, and a pro-active team always looking out for

potential roadblocks, the fact that they listen to what you

want, and need, is a crucial service.

The Hallmark choice

Esther also says that buyers are coming from all over the

country, places like Auckland, Dunedin and Nelson. This

echoes sentiments from local real estate agents and shows

that the region is a great buy and a solid investment for your

future. Hallmark Homes is also on board with Homestar,

ensuring that your new home is warmer, drier and healthier.

It also means you are actively reducing your carbon footprint,

so it’s win-win. And you only need to read their website

testimonials to understand the experience you’ll have as their

customer, and that includes a truckload of transparency—

there are no surprises.

So if you’re ready to jump in the deep end and build that

forever home, call one of their new home consultants on

0508 442 556 or visit their show home at 162 Southfield

Drive, Te Whariki, Lincoln.

‘The Rolleston’ is great for first

home buyers and part of the
