West Melton’s Hamish Macdonald is the world enduro champion for a second time.<br />

Bid to<br />

avert<br />

forest fire<br />

destroying<br />

homes<br />

• By Matt Slaughter<br />

PEOPLE LIVING near a forested<br />

area in Darfield will be told by fire<br />

chiefs tomorrow how to get out if<br />

a blaze breaks out over summer.<br />

McHughs Forest Park has been<br />

identified by Fire and Emergency<br />

New Zealand as a potential hazard<br />

due to its close proximity to<br />

residential properties and businesses<br />

and the abundance of fuels<br />

which come from these.<br />

Darfield deputy chief fire officer<br />

Ken Muscroft said the Lake Ohau<br />

fire last month, which destroyed<br />

48 buildings and burnt through<br />

5040ha of land, underpinned why<br />

a meeting is necessary.<br />

“We haven’t had any [fires]<br />

there [the forest park] yet, that’s<br />

the main thing. We’re getting<br />

prepared in case.<br />

“I think if you look at Lake<br />

Ohau you get a good idea [why],”<br />

he said.<br />

He does not know if the forest,<br />

which he said is near a large number<br />

of houses, could experience<br />

a blaze like Lake Ohau but it is<br />

important people are prepared if<br />

the worst happens.<br />

GOOD ON landlord John<br />

Giltrap and the Lincoln<br />

Community Committee<br />

for chipping in to make the<br />

Gerald St shops and footpath<br />

safer.<br />

On page 5 today we share<br />

the back story on why bollards<br />

have gone in. The photo<br />

of the vehicle in the dairy is a<br />

fairly self-explanatory reason<br />

why.<br />

Giltrap and the community<br />

committee put in $4000<br />

each for the 10 bollards<br />

which will give businesses<br />

and pedestrians alike the ideal<br />

safety net when mistakes<br />

are made by people behind<br />

the wheel.<br />

Community committee<br />

secretary Pauline Hayes said<br />

they had been approached<br />

by residents and business<br />

owners.<br />

The community committee<br />

listened and the outcome has<br />

been a great solution.<br />

MORE PEOPLE have moved<br />

to the district from other parts<br />

of New Zealand than anywhere<br />

else in the country this year.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Business Group member<br />

and Harcourts Rolleston<br />

manager Richard Tait says good<br />

employment opportunities and<br />

affordable housing in the district<br />

may be reasons for this.<br />

Statistics New Zealand’s latest<br />

data on internal migration gain<br />

as of the end of June, shows 2100<br />

people have moved to the district<br />

this year.<br />

Tait said the district and<br />

Canterbury as a whole have<br />

bounced back from the impacts<br />

of Covid-19 faster than other<br />

parts of New Zealand, making it<br />

a desirable place to move to and<br />

work in.<br />

“In real estate, if you look at<br />

what you were doing and what<br />

you missed out on, we’ve recovered,<br />

eh. Most businesses, from<br />

what I can see, have recovered<br />

and now are moving forward,<br />

that would be a fair assessment<br />

but I can’t speak for everyone,<br />

that would just be within our<br />

[business] group.”<br />

He said some of the most<br />

common New Zealand locations<br />

people are moving to the<br />

district from are Auckland and<br />

Hamilton.<br />

“I think everyone’s had a look<br />

at their lives after Covid and<br />

thought well, you know what,<br />

GROWING: More people have moved from other parts of New Zealand to <strong>Selwyn</strong> than<br />

anywhere else in the country in the last year.<br />

we could go and live in [<strong>Selwyn</strong>]<br />

and be debt-free and find some<br />

form of job and get rid of a<br />

massive mortgage and live quite<br />

comfortable, so that’s really<br />

noticeable,” he said.<br />

Tauranga had the second most<br />

internal migration, with 1900<br />

people moving there from other<br />

parts of New Zealand.<br />

Twelve-hundred people moved<br />

across the country to Waikato,<br />

Championship decided<br />

in final enduro round<br />

• From page 1<br />

Macdonald was only back in<br />

the country at that time because<br />

of international chaos caused by<br />

Covid-19, but it meant he was<br />

able to race the full Kiwi series for<br />

the first time since 2017.<br />

The Sherco rider’s build-up for<br />

the <strong>2020</strong> world championships<br />

began immediately.<br />

“Once the borders reopened<br />

and racing rescheduled,<br />

I was on a plane and<br />

back to England. The<br />

team had a race bike<br />

in England and I<br />

was straight into the<br />

final British sprint<br />

championship rounds<br />

managing three of the<br />

four outright wins and<br />

taking the E2 British<br />

sprint title,” he said.<br />

“To change things up a<br />

bit and push the fitness, I took on<br />

the big boys Graeme Jarvis and<br />

Billy Bolt in the British extreme<br />

championship round, a bit of fun<br />

and I was happy to jump on the<br />

podium with them.”<br />

The 21-year-old has clearly<br />

followed in the wheel-tracks of<br />

such Kiwi enduro legends as<br />

Stefan Merriman, Chris Birch<br />

and Paul Whibley, packing up his<br />

helmet a boots and headed offshore<br />

to seek fame and fortune<br />

Hamish<br />

Macdonald<br />

for the first time in 2018.<br />

This year was only his third<br />

season in Europe, but he had<br />

already set tongues wagging<br />

on his debut in the youth class<br />

of the FIM Enduro GP World<br />

Championships in 2018.<br />

Finishing no worse that sixth<br />

through his debut season in 2018<br />

and celebrating two wins in Italy,<br />

Macdonald wound up a close<br />

second overall in the<br />

youth series, finishing<br />

behind Chile’s Ruy<br />

Barbosa and ahead of<br />

Britain’s Daniel Mundell,<br />

and last year he was just<br />

as impressive.<br />

He ended his 2019<br />

campaign with an<br />

18-point winning<br />

margin over Italy’s<br />

Matteo Pavoni, with<br />

another Italian, Claudio<br />

Spanu, claiming third overall,<br />

while Frenchman Nathan Bererd<br />

(Husqvarna) and then Spain’s<br />

Sergio Navarro (Husqvarna)<br />

completed the top five for 2019.<br />

This year it was his own Sherco<br />

team-mate, French rider Théo<br />

Espinasse, who threatened<br />

him most, but Macdonald<br />

eventually clinched the <strong>2020</strong><br />

FIM Junior Enduro GP World<br />

Championships title at the final<br />

round.<br />

DESTROYED: A meeting is being held in Darfield tomorrow to avoid scenes like these<br />

after the Lake Ohau fire last month.<br />

High winds increase fire risk<br />

• From page 1<br />

The meeting at Darfield<br />

Recreation Centre at 7pm will<br />

cover the McHughs Forest Park<br />

fire plan.<br />

The plan was created by the<br />

district council, FENZ police<br />

and other organisations to<br />

protect people in case of a forest<br />

fire.<br />

The meeting will cover<br />

evacuation zones and what to do<br />

if a fire breaks out.<br />

The risk of fire in the forest<br />

is greatly increased during<br />

periods of high wind,<br />

particularly a strong nor’west<br />

that could blow embers from a<br />

fire into Darfield.<br />

Said Malvern Ward district<br />

councilor Jenny Gallagher:<br />

“We’ve got to prepare people<br />

if there is an event and that<br />

plantation goes up in flames,<br />

especially if it’s a nor’west wind,<br />

because there’s a lot of properties<br />

on the east side of that plantation<br />

that would be affected.<br />

“It’s just in my mind, the<br />

council are being very proactive<br />

and preparing people for events<br />

happen.”<br />

$8000 bollards makes shops safer<br />

• By Matt Slaughter<br />

LINCOLN Convenience Store<br />

owners Holly and Murray have<br />

had two cars crash through their<br />

store in the last few years.<br />

It has come as a big relief for<br />

the couple that bollards have<br />

now been installed to protect<br />

their store and others in the<br />

Gerald St block of shops.<br />

The 10 bollards, which cost<br />

$8000, were jointly funded.<br />

The block of shops’ landlord<br />

John Giltrap put $4000 of his<br />

own money towards them<br />

and the other $4000 came<br />

from the Lincoln Community<br />

Committee’s discretionary<br />

response fund.<br />

Murray said the first crash<br />

happened about three years ago<br />

when a man in a four-wheeldrive<br />

hit the gutter outside of the<br />

store, got a fright and stepped<br />

on the accelerator instead of the<br />

break.<br />

No one was hurt but said Murray:<br />

“He buried his four-wheeldrive<br />

right up in the back of<br />

the shop. He could have wound<br />

down the window and we could<br />

have served him.<br />

“It made an absolute mess and<br />

it was scary,” he said<br />

PROTECTION:<br />

Murray and<br />

Holly say<br />

new bollards<br />

outside their<br />

store will keep<br />

themselves,<br />

other shop<br />

owners and<br />

customers<br />

safe. PHOTO:<br />

GEOFF SLOAN<br />

The second incident last year<br />

was when a car was left in gear<br />

and travelled forward through<br />

the shop’s entrance. The damage<br />

was not as bad this time but he<br />

said both crashes forced the store<br />

to close for a few days, leading to<br />

loss of income.<br />

Murray said it was lucky that<br />

no one in the shop was injured<br />

on both occasions and a relief<br />

that no one at the block of shops<br />

will be in future thanks to the<br />

bollards.<br />

“We’re just so pleased to have<br />

them because it’s dangerous for<br />

us.<br />

“It’s safety, of course, for us<br />

and people who work here and<br />

for our customers,” he said.<br />

Said Holly: “That’s a lot of<br />

relief. In both of the accidents,<br />

we were so lucky no one got<br />

hit.”<br />

Giltrap said he wasn’t willing<br />

to wait for another crash to happen<br />

and this is why he decided to<br />

help pay half of the cost for the<br />

bollards.<br />

“There’s been two near misses,<br />

it was time to put a protection<br />

in.”<br />

Community committee<br />

secretary Pauline Hayes said<br />

its decision to put some of its<br />

discretionary funds towards the<br />

DAMAGE: The four-wheel-drive vehicle<br />

that crashed into the store three years<br />

ago.<br />

bollards was because “it was an<br />

accident waiting to happen.”<br />

“It was a health a safety issue<br />

and we had been approached by<br />

residents and also some of the<br />

people who had their businesses<br />

there in that block of shops.<br />

“The community committee<br />

took it on board and decided<br />

to allocate some of our<br />

discretionary funds towards it,”<br />

she said.<br />

After 24 years our retiring vendors are downsizing which gives<br />

potential purchasers a unique opportunity to secure a 150ha<br />

(approximately) sheep and beef farm with an extra income stream<br />

right on the outskirts of Christchurch city.<br />

The property offers a very good standard of improvements which<br />

includes a private, modernised three bedroom home situated in a<br />

sheltered and established garden. An exceptional set of stock yards<br />

are currently used to generate extra income from a stock agistment<br />

business. The two stand woolshed is in a very tidy condition as is the<br />

three-bay implement shed and the three-bay hayshed.<br />

With irrigation consent to irrigate up to 20ha and the property being<br />

well fenced into numerous paddocks with lane ways, the property<br />

would suit a number of stock systems.<br />

This is a unique opportunity to secure a sizeable farm in a great<br />

location only a short commute to the city.<br />

Wednesday <strong>November</strong> <strong>25</strong> <strong>2020</strong> <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong><br />

ONE OF New Zealand’s<br />

best-known cricketers will be<br />

immortalised at the new <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

Sports Centre.<br />

The wooden floor sports<br />

hall – half of the court space<br />

at the centre at Foster Park –<br />

will be named the John F. Reid<br />

Courts.<br />

Reid played 19 tests and <strong>25</strong><br />

one-day internationals between<br />

1979 and 1986. He still holds<br />

the record as the fastest New<br />

Zealander to score 1000 runs in<br />

test cricket, set in 1985.<br />

His career test batting average<br />

of 46 ranks him amongst the top<br />

10 players in New Zealand test<br />

cricket history.<br />

After a stint as Auckland<br />

Cricket chief executive, he<br />

moved to <strong>Selwyn</strong> in 1996<br />

working for New Zealand<br />

Cricket as cricket operations<br />

manager and high performance<br />

manager.<br />

Through these roles he led the<br />

establishment of NZC’s national<br />

high performance centre at<br />

Lincoln University, which<br />

included the development of<br />

the international standard Bert<br />

Sutcliffe Oval.<br />

Reid has been the district<br />

council’s major projects<br />

property manager since 2015,<br />

overseeing some significant<br />

building projects.<br />

The four sprung wood courts<br />

in the hall are due to be laid<br />

in the next fortnight as the<br />

centre marks another milestone<br />

towards opening to the public in<br />

time for the 2021 winter sport<br />

season.<br />

Mayor Sam Broughton said<br />

the naming will acknowledge<br />

both Reid’s work as a champion<br />

for the courts and community<br />

sport in <strong>Selwyn</strong>, and his huge<br />

contribution to sport across the<br />

country.<br />

Reid also spent nine years<br />

in senior roles at Sport New<br />

A champion of community<br />

sport and recreation centre that<br />

prioritised use by community<br />

“We’re lucky to have one<br />

of the country’s best sports<br />

administrators working with a<br />

passion for the people of <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

on projects that will serve the<br />

community for a long time,”<br />

said Broughton.<br />

“John has led the<br />

implementation phase of<br />

developing Foster Park and<br />

continues to provide the<br />

leadership to deliver the<br />

the district gains a facility<br />

Drinking<br />

water meets<br />

standards<br />

THE DISTRICT’S drinking water<br />

has received a clean bill of health<br />

for complying with drinking<br />

water standards under the Health<br />

Act.<br />

This comes after last year<br />

about 3000 Doyleston and Leeston<br />

residents were issued a boil<br />

water notice after high levels of<br />

E coli were found in one towns’<br />

water supply.<br />

Now, the district’s water supplies<br />

have been found to complying<br />

with national drinking water<br />

standards in all areas assessed in<br />

the Ministry of Health’s annual<br />

compliance report for 2019/20.<br />

The report, has been presented<br />

to the district council and shows<br />

nitrate levels are below the<br />

maximum allowable levels and<br />

that all the council’s supplies<br />

were fully compliant for bacteria<br />

in both the treatment plants and<br />

reticulation.<br />

The areas considered in the<br />

report included bacteriological,<br />

protozoa and chemical compliance.<br />

For protozoa compliance, eight<br />

schemes were not compliant for<br />

the full year. These were schemes<br />

that were being upgraded during<br />

the year or that will be upgraded<br />

in this financial year.<br />

$20m allocated<br />

for new east<br />

Rolleston school<br />

A NEW primary school that<br />

will be built in east Rolleston<br />

has received $20 million in<br />

Government funding.<br />

It will accommodate 400 pupils.<br />

Education Minister Chris<br />

Hipkins announced this and<br />

other school building projects on<br />

Friday.<br />

They are part of a $164 million<br />

package announced on Thursday.<br />

Said Hipkins: “More and more<br />

families are choosing to move to<br />

Rolleston post the earthquakes.<br />

It’s one of the fastest growing<br />

areas in the country.<br />

“Five million [dollars] will<br />

also be used to fund short-term<br />

classrooms at schools in the<br />

South Island facing severe<br />

pressure from rapid roll growth,”<br />

he said.<br />

The funding will go towards a<br />

total of 28 classrooms in schools<br />

in Canterbury, Otago, Nelson<br />

and Tasman, with a total of 616<br />

student places.<br />

The other $7 million will<br />

deliver permanent roll growth<br />

classrooms at Prebbleton School,<br />

Waimea College in Nelson, St<br />

Martins School in Christchurch,<br />

and Grants Braes School in<br />

Dunedin.<br />

“Families rightly expect their<br />

children to be able to learn in<br />

warm, dry and comfortable,” said<br />

Hipkins.<br />

ABOUT 18 years ago Glenn<br />

Anderson left a corporate<br />

position with Nestle for a<br />

hands-on role as a supermarket<br />

manager.<br />

He and his wife Tracy Anderson<br />

haven’t looked back since<br />

and are now the new owners of<br />

New World in Rolleston.<br />

They started in their new role<br />

about five weeks ago. They have<br />

previously managed supermarkets<br />

in Nelson, Waimate and<br />

Christchurch.<br />

Glenn said some of the things<br />

that have kept him in the supermarket<br />

industry for so many<br />

years are the people he gets<br />

to serve and the teams he has<br />

worked with.<br />

“It’s your team that you really<br />

enjoy and your costumers as<br />

well. So it’s a combination of<br />

both of those.”<br />

Rolleston residents have been<br />

friendly and good to deal with.<br />

“It’s amazing how many of the<br />

customers have come up to me<br />

and introduced themselves.<br />

“It’s a really, really friendly,<br />

good community store,” he said.<br />

Tracy said taking over the<br />

ownership of the Rolleston store,<br />

Back in the sulky and winner’s circle<br />

• By Joshua Smith<br />

IT’S BEEN more than a decade<br />

since Jo Herbert saluted the<br />

judge, but her winning drive<br />

behind Blue Chip Delight at<br />

Motukarara Raceway on Sunday<br />

showed she hasn’t lost any of her<br />

talent.<br />

Blue Chip Delight made a solid<br />

start to sit midfield before Herbert<br />

asked him to improve threewide<br />

down the back straight<br />

to sit outside leader Eastwood<br />

Isabella.<br />

They hit the lead at the top of<br />

the straight and didn’t relinquish<br />

their advantage, holding out the<br />

fast-finishing The Kaik to win by<br />

a neck, with a further head back<br />

to Bettor Believe It in third.<br />

Herbert was delighted to get<br />

the win after such a long hiatus.<br />

“It felt really good, it’s been a<br />

long time between drinks,” she<br />

said.<br />

“I was pleased with the horse,<br />

he went well.”<br />

A pioneer for female drivers<br />

in New Zealand, Herbert won<br />

193 races in the cart before she<br />

was forced to step away from the<br />

game 10 years ago to look after<br />

her son Brooklyn.<br />

“At the time it was in the toohard<br />

basket, he wasn’t that well,”<br />

Herbert said.<br />

“It got too hard, so I just focused<br />

on him. He is 13 now so he<br />

is quite good at self-managing.”<br />

SUCCESS: Jo Herbert brings Blue Chip Delight back to the birdcage after winning at<br />

Motukarara on Sunday.<br />

Herbert returned to the industry<br />

last year after the urging<br />

of trainer Stephen Boyd and she<br />

landed her ideal job with current<br />

employers Colin and Julie De-<br />

Filippi, for whom she drove Blue<br />

Chip Delight on Sunday, earlier<br />

this year.<br />

“I was initially influenced by<br />

Stephen Boyd in getting me out<br />

there, that definitely helped,”<br />

Herbert said.<br />

“I now work for Colin and<br />

Julie, you couldn’t ask for nicer<br />

people.<br />

“When I was pregnant he<br />

ended up training my trotter. I<br />

kept working him right up until<br />

I was 30 weeks pregnant and<br />

then sent him to Colin. He has<br />

always been like my father in<br />

harness racing.”<br />

When Herbert heard the De-<br />

Filippi’s were looking for another<br />

worker, she said she was quick to<br />

get on the phone, even though<br />

she was on the other side of the<br />

world at the time.<br />

“When I heard he was looking<br />

for someone I was straight on<br />

the phone from Spain. We went<br />

over there for five weeks back in<br />

February,” she said.<br />

“We were quite lucky because<br />

two days after we got home<br />

Barcelona was in lockdown. We<br />

timed perfectly.”<br />

Herbert’s win on Sunday has<br />

brought her just six wins shy of<br />

200 driving career wins, a mark<br />

she would have tried to attain 10<br />

years ago had she known she was<br />

so close.<br />

“At the time when I stopped<br />

I hadn’t actually looked at that<br />

(career win tally),” Herbert said.<br />

“It was more that I had to do it<br />

(give up driving) because of my<br />

son.<br />

“If I had known back then that<br />

I was that close I wouldn’t have<br />

given it up quite so soon.”<br />

Herbert said DeFilippi has<br />

been trying to get her back in the<br />

cart for some time, but she has<br />

been happy working behind the<br />

scenes.<br />

“He has been trying to, but I<br />

have been quite happy just gearing<br />

up, it hasn’t fazed me,” she<br />

said.<br />

But with three horses in the<br />

field of the Country Feasts Pace<br />

(2170m) on Sunday, DeFilippi<br />

was able to twist Herbert’s arm<br />

into taking the drive behind<br />

Blue Chip Delight, and they were<br />

both rewarded.<br />

“It was great to get the win, but<br />

I am just happy to be working<br />

for him,” Herbert said.<br />

Save water<br />

now or face<br />

restrictions<br />

– council<br />

RESIDENTS ARE urged to be<br />

smart with their water use this<br />

summer to avoid restrictions.<br />

District council infrastructure<br />

group manager Murray Washington<br />

said after a drier winter<br />

than usual, the National Institute<br />

of Water and Atmospheric<br />

Research is predicting a hot, dry<br />

summer.<br />

He said now is the time to get<br />

into good habits to ensure there<br />

is no need for restrictions.<br />

“Water supplies are often<br />

placed under pressure during<br />

summer as many people<br />

decide to water their lawns<br />

and gardens at the same time.<br />

So we’re encouraging people<br />

to think about their water use.<br />

If everyone plays their part<br />

we should be able to avoid<br />

restrictions and provide water<br />

at a good pressure all summer<br />

long,” he said.<br />

The district council is<br />

recommending people limit<br />

watering to after 9pm, to keep it<br />

away from peak usage times and<br />

ensure the sun doesn’t quickly<br />

evaporate the water, which will<br />

reduce the effectiveness of the<br />

water use.<br />

Now, the Glentunnel resident<br />

Cunnah provides professional<br />

clinical social work services to<br />

personnel at Burnham Military<br />

Camp as well as their family<br />

and, in his spare time, the wider<br />

Canterbury community.<br />

He was part of a trial to introduce<br />

social workers to the NZDF<br />

four years ago – a trial which led<br />

to them becoming permanent<br />

employees. Cunnah said the<br />

importance of providing this<br />

service to personnel could not be<br />

under-estimated.<br />

“We live in an ever-changing<br />

and unpredictable world which<br />

can place significant pressures<br />

on soldiers and their families.<br />

“As the types of issues become<br />

more complex in their presentation,<br />

a more holistic approach to<br />

is required, and this is<br />

where social work comes into its<br />

SERVICE: Liam Cunnah has received the New Zealand<br />

Defence Force civilian of the year award. ​<br />

relationship built between local<br />

command teams and the social<br />

work service was crucial.<br />

“Without this, I would not<br />

be in the position I am to have<br />

been nominated and chosen as a<br />

recipient of this special award.<br />

“As someone who prefers to<br />

be behind the scenes promoting<br />

the successes of others, this is an<br />

unfamiliar yet humbling experience<br />

to be receiving this award.<br />

“The success of the Burnham<br />

social work service has been<br />

supported and enhanced by the<br />

exceptional work of my fellow<br />

colleagues within the Burnham<br />

integrated wellness team,” he<br />

said.<br />

Last year, Cunnah undertook<br />

postgraduate study in family<br />

therapy, as well as having studied<br />

Gottman couples therapy<br />

this year.<br />

“I chose to do this as it was a<br />

need that I identified around the<br />

ever-changing relationship challenges<br />

faced by soldiers and their<br />

dependents.<br />

“As social workers we are<br />

innately driven by our desire<br />

to promote and enhance the<br />

self-determination and empowerment<br />

of both our clients and<br />

often the wider organisations<br />

that we are employed by,” he<br />

said.<br />

Cunnah also supports the<br />

wider Canterbury community<br />

in his own time by providing<br />

clinical input as a board member<br />

for Salisbury Street Foundation,<br />

Senior Sergeant Dean Harker<br />

said over show weekend between<br />

wiring was taken from 16 properties.<br />

The houses targeted were in<br />

Ridgeway Ave, Wittington Drive<br />

and Chesney Drive.<br />

Harker said police believe the<br />

incidents were linked and were<br />

likely carried out by one person.<br />

He said copper wiring was also<br />

stolen in similar burglaries in<br />

Lincoln last year.<br />

“It [copper wiring] has a monetary<br />

value. The value of the wire<br />

itself is not overly large,” he said.<br />

He estimated the resale value of<br />

the amount of wiring stolen from<br />

each property is about $50 but<br />

said it costs much more to have it<br />

installed.<br />

New Zealand.<br />

Harker said the recent burglaries<br />

do not bring this into question<br />

but burglaries of construction<br />

sites are becoming more common<br />

in the district due to its developing<br />

nature.<br />

“It’s probably just a trend.<br />

There’s a lot of building here, there<br />

is that opportunity for people to<br />

actually target those sort of areas.<br />

With all that building it’s just an<br />

opportunity for dishonest people<br />

to steal stuff.”<br />

Harker recommended people<br />

building houses should install<br />

security cameras on construction<br />

sites. He said police are currently<br />

investigating if any footage was<br />

taken of the burglaries over the<br />

long weekend.<br />

The Faces of <strong>Selwyn</strong> exhibition was launched last year and a new<br />

set of 12 stories about people in the district are on display at <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

Surinder Tandon<br />

LINCOLN resident Dr<br />

Surinder Tandon is a<br />

textile engineer with<br />

a passion for weaving<br />

together communities<br />

of all cultures and<br />

backgrounds.<br />

Originally from New<br />

Delhi, Tandon and his wife<br />

Archna moved to New<br />

Zealand in 1988. He had<br />

just completed his PhD<br />

in textile engineering and<br />

landed a job at the Wool<br />

Research Organisation of<br />

New Zealand in Lincoln.<br />

“They were doing a lot of<br />

interesting work in textile<br />

engineering and fabric<br />

product development,” he<br />

said.<br />

Combined with his love<br />

for cricket, he thought it<br />

offered was the perfect<br />

opportunity to mix career<br />

and sport.<br />

“But of course, New<br />

Zealand is far away from<br />

India. It was quite new, but<br />

it was exciting and challenging.”<br />

He credits his work colleagues<br />

for helping him<br />

settle into New Zealand<br />

and connecting him with<br />

other Indian families in<br />

the area. They showed him<br />

around, and he was able to<br />

socialise with others in the<br />

wider community.<br />

While juggling his career<br />

and the arrival of his two<br />

children, Tandon got together<br />

with new migrants<br />

COMMUNITY:<br />

Surinder Tandon has<br />

a passion for bringing<br />

the district’s people<br />

together. ​<br />

from India and formed a<br />

“potluck social group” to<br />

meet up during the weekends<br />

for picnics and other<br />

family activities.<br />

In 1998, they then<br />

formed the Indian Social<br />

and Cultural Club which<br />

is now the major Indian association<br />

in Christchurch.<br />

A member of the Lincoln<br />

Rotary Club, he plays an<br />

important role in bringing<br />

the club’s CultureFest to<br />

life for Canterbury residents.<br />

It’s a festival where<br />

various ethnic groups can<br />

showcase their music,<br />

dance and food, he says.<br />

“Its culture galore!”<br />

Since CultureFest made<br />

its debut in Rolleston<br />

NEWS 15<br />

A passion for weaving<br />

together communities<br />

A SERIES of drop-in<br />

sessions to support people<br />

into work, and employers<br />

with staffing needs, is<br />

kicking off across the<br />

district.<br />

Held at public libraries<br />

in Leeston, Lincoln,<br />

Rolleston and Darfield,<br />

employment zone clinics<br />

are sessions where people<br />

can access one-to-one<br />

support around job<br />

seeking, redundancy, staff<br />

retention and recruitment.<br />

The sessions, presented<br />

by Sarah Parker, work<br />

broker for the Ministry of<br />

Social Development, aim<br />

to provide more support<br />

for local communities,<br />

assisting people into sustainable<br />

employment, and<br />

providing a personal and<br />

quick service tailored to<br />

their needs.<br />

“Employment is still<br />

going strong in the community<br />

and businesses are<br />

really open to supports<br />

from MSD,’” said Parker.<br />

“By being on the ground<br />

in the community, I’m<br />

able to tailor services to<br />

the person or business<br />

on a one to one basis,<br />

assisting with their needs<br />

directly. We’ve received<br />

really positive feedback<br />

by people surprised when<br />

they discover the amount<br />

of supports which are<br />

available to businesses,”<br />

she said.<br />

MSD regional labour<br />

market manager Regan<br />

in 2004 more and more<br />

cultural groups have been<br />

participating and the event<br />

has grown into the highly<br />

anticipated annual district<br />

council and Christchurch<br />

Multicultural Council run<br />

event in Lincoln.<br />

It’s also an event that<br />

aims to promote and<br />

encourage social inclusion<br />

and equality, and Tandon<br />

believes it has become an<br />

important vehicle for helping<br />

to prevent cultural and<br />

ethnic divisions.<br />

It’s long way from the<br />

early “potluck social<br />

group” he formed with<br />

other Indian migrants in<br />

the early 1990s.<br />

Tandon’s passion for culture<br />

and community grew,<br />

and he went on to represent<br />

the Indian community<br />

on the Christchurch<br />

Multicultural Council, and<br />

has been its president for<br />

the last ten years.<br />

“I grew a lot of passion<br />

for serving ethnic communities,”<br />

he said.<br />

“Not just Indian communities,<br />

but all communities,<br />

including migrants<br />

and refugees.”<br />

Christchurch has over<br />

180 ethnicities and has<br />

become very diverse, he<br />

said.<br />

“I realised that the<br />

needs of all migrants are<br />

the same for settlement,<br />

such as culture, language<br />

barriers, employment<br />

challenges and<br />

homesickness, of course.”<br />

Library sessions to cover<br />

all aspects of employment<br />

Jackson said it is important<br />

employers and job seekers<br />

are fully aware of the funding<br />

and services currently<br />

on offer to support them.<br />

“The drop-in sessions<br />

provide an opportunity<br />

for people to meet with us<br />

to discuss their needs, and<br />

are an effective engagement<br />

channel enabling us<br />

to connect them to what is<br />

available,” he said.<br />

Both employers and people<br />

needing work can drop<br />

in during the session times<br />

and have the opportunity<br />

to talk directly with Sarah<br />

about their employment<br />

needs.<br />

The sessions are free and<br />

16 <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> Wednesday <strong>November</strong> <strong>25</strong> <strong>2020</strong><br />

Sporting champion to be honoured<br />

at <strong>Selwyn</strong> Sports Centre<br />

One of New Zealand’s leading sportsmen and sporting administrators will be recognised at the<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Sports Centre.<br />

The wooden floor sports hall at the <strong>Selwyn</strong> Sports Centre at Foster Park will be named the John F.<br />

Reid Courts.<br />

The four sprung wood courts in the hall are due to be laid in the next fortnight as the centre marks<br />

another milestone towards opening to the public in time for the 2021 winter sport season.<br />

Mayor Sam Broughton says the naming will acknowledge Mr Reid’s work as a champion for the<br />

courts and community sport in <strong>Selwyn</strong>, and his huge contribution to sport across the country.<br />

Originally from Auckland, Mr Reid represented New Zealand at cricket in 19 Test Matches and <strong>25</strong><br />

One Day Internationals. He holds the record as the fastest New Zealander to score 1000 runs in<br />

test cricket, and his career test batting average is among the top 10 players in New Zealand’s test<br />

cricket history.<br />

He went on to be Chief Executive for Auckland Cricket before moving to <strong>Selwyn</strong> in 1996 to be<br />

New Zealand Cricket’s High Performance Manager and Operations Manager.<br />

In these roles he led the establishment of the Cricket National High Performance Centre at Lincoln<br />

University, including the development of an international standard playing facility – the Bert<br />

Sutcliffe Oval.<br />

Mr Reid spent nine years in senior roles at Sport New Zealand (previously SPARC), supporting<br />

community sport delivery nationally and establishing a national programme to identify and<br />

develop talented young athletes.<br />

A champion of community sport, Mr Reid was an inaugural trustee of the <strong>Selwyn</strong> Sports Trust<br />

and advocated to the <strong>Selwyn</strong> District Council on the need for a sport and recreation centre that<br />

prioritised use by community level providers within the district.<br />

Mr Reid has been the Council’s Major Projects Property Manager since 2015, overseeing some<br />

significant building projects, Council Group Manager Property Douglas Marshall says.<br />

“We’re lucky to have one of the country’s best sports administrators working with a passion for<br />

the people of <strong>Selwyn</strong> on projects that will serve the community for a long time. John has led<br />

the implementation phase of developing Foster Park and continues to provide the leadership to<br />

deliver the <strong>Selwyn</strong> Sports Centre.”<br />

Council and Lincoln University supporting<br />

businesses from the land<br />

Lincoln University’s Centre of Excellence and the Council have teamed up to put on a special event<br />

supporting <strong>Selwyn</strong>’s food, wine and agritourism businesses.<br />

Food producers, artisans, cafés and restaurants are all invited to the event at Lincoln University from<br />

4–6pm on Wednesday 2 December, which will see researchers from the university present on ideas to help<br />

build capacity and upskill, along with opportunities to grow and strengthen networks between businesses.<br />

The event will include presentations on research from members of Lincoln University’s Centre of<br />

Excellence – Sustainable Tourism for Regions, Landscapes and People, including ‘Identifying and<br />

communicating <strong>Selwyn</strong>’s food story’ and ‘Getting local produce on local menus’.<br />

It will also double as an opportunity for people to meet and connect with other similar businesses. The<br />

aim is to help build a network of food and beverage businesses, Council Group Manager Community<br />

Services and Facilities Denise Kidd says.<br />

“We know agriculture and agritourism are a huge part of <strong>Selwyn</strong>’s economy and we have some great<br />

innovative and quality produce here. By getting those businesses together with restaurants, cafés and<br />

others we’re hoping to encourage people to work together and take advantage of the opportunities we<br />

have from the land.”<br />

Anyone interested in attending can email tourism@selwyn.govt.nz for more information or to register.<br />

The Proposed District Plan –<br />

considering starting a new<br />

home business?<br />

The Proposed District Plan includes some new proposed rules that may<br />

affect people starting a new business from home.<br />

Under the proposed plan running a business from home continues<br />

to be a permitted activity in both rural and residential areas, but<br />

some rules around when you may need a resource consent are<br />

proposed to change.<br />

The main change is around the size your business premises can<br />

be before you need to apply for a resource consent. New home<br />

businesses will not need a resource consent if there are no more<br />

than two staff who live off-site and the maximum floor area used for<br />

the business is under 100m 2 in a rural zone, or 40m 2 if you’re in a<br />

residential zone.<br />

In residentially-zoned areas, the proposed rules would mean<br />

business activity involving customer visits and/or deliveries, could<br />

only occur between 7.30am–7pm and all business goods would<br />

need to be stored indoors. In the current District Plan business<br />

activity involving visits by customers and clients, is limited to<br />

between 7am–10pm on any day.<br />

In rurally-zoned areas, business activity involving customer visits and/<br />

or deliveries, could occur between 7am–7pm. In the current District<br />

Plan there are no limits on hours of the operation in the Rural Zone.<br />

The changes being proposed are aimed at ensuring that home<br />

businesses don’t potentially adversely affect the look and feel of<br />

residential or rural areas. The changes are also aimed at striking a<br />

better balance between making it easy to set up a home business<br />

and encouraging bigger businesses to locate in the district’s<br />

commercial and business centres.<br />

It is important to note that these changes would only apply to those<br />

starting a new home business and will not have effect until the<br />

proposed plan is operational, which is expected to happen by the<br />

end of 2022. If you currently run a business from home, you will not<br />

be affected by the proposed change of rules.<br />

Anyone interested in finding out more about how the proposed<br />

changes to starting a new home business affect them please<br />

contact the Council by calling 0800 SELWYN (735 996) or emailing<br />

contactus@selwyn.govt.nz.<br />

You can find out more about the Proposed District Plan<br />

and make a submission until 5pm Friday 11 December at<br />

It might not sound it at first, but the <strong>Selwyn</strong> Youth Council is a life-changing opportunity, Youth Council<br />

member Inaki Cepeda says.<br />

Applications for the 2021/22 <strong>Selwyn</strong> Youth Council are open for young people between 12 and 24 years<br />

of age who live in <strong>Selwyn</strong>.<br />

The Youth Council is made up of 12 members who are passionate about making a positive difference<br />

for young people in <strong>Selwyn</strong>.<br />

Inaki, who is part of this year’s Youth Council, says he did not know a lot about the Youth Council when<br />

a member first suggested to him that he should apply, but he was glad that he did.<br />

“It has been a really cool, life-changing experience. I’ve had so much fun, met so many people from<br />

different townships, made so many friends and learnt new life skills. Everyone should try it. It may not<br />

sound cool from an ad or an article, but it’s such a cool experience.”<br />

Despite the Covid-19 pandemic restricting some of the things the Youth Council could do this year there<br />

have still been lots of highlights, such as helping out with BOOST Bubble, posting encouragement and<br />

activities to support young people during the lockdown – posts which reached close to 24,000 accounts.<br />

Inaki has also helped with the Youth Council’s Passion Podcast series, interviewing <strong>Selwyn</strong> residents<br />

about their passions and with a BOOST Halloween event supporting the Burnham Military Camp family<br />

Halloween party.<br />

Youth Council members have also presented to<br />

Council on issues affecting youth, and hosted<br />

the ‘What do YOUth think’ surveys which<br />

this year gave young people in <strong>Selwyn</strong> the<br />

opportunity to help design the youth space for<br />

the Rolleston Town Centre.<br />

Mayor Sam Broughton says the Youth Council<br />

makes a valuable difference. “The Youth Council<br />

has been an active part of making <strong>Selwyn</strong> a<br />

great place to live. Anyone who wants to be<br />

part of that and help make cool things happen<br />

and support other young people should put<br />

their name forward for consideration.”<br />

Anyone interested can complete an application<br />

online. Applications close Saturday 30<br />

<strong>November</strong>. For more information or to apply<br />

Exhibition showcases<br />

district’s artists<br />

THE ANNUAL <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

Arts Heart Exhibition<br />

sprung to life earlier this<br />

month at the Rolleston<br />

Community Centre.<br />

It was attended by 280<br />

people who visited from all<br />

over <strong>Selwyn</strong> and Canterbury.<br />

On display were <strong>25</strong>0<br />

pieces of art made by artists<br />

from the district.<br />

The exhibition – supported<br />

by the district council’s<br />

Creative Communities<br />

Fund – was open to artists<br />

of any style and age.<br />

It has hosted Canterbury<br />

artist Henry Turner’s art<br />

since he was 12, musical<br />

instruments made out of<br />

cake tins and the <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

Embroiderer’s group.<br />

Scheduled for April<br />

next year, <strong>Selwyn</strong> Arts<br />

Heart chairwoman Wendy<br />

Rockhouse said she will<br />

apply for the creative communities<br />

fund again to<br />

help cover the venue hire<br />

and advertising expenses,<br />

as she does every year.<br />

“Without their funding,<br />

we couldn’t run an exhibition.<br />

Our exhibitions aren’t<br />

money making exhibitions,<br />

they’re held to give emerging<br />

artists the opportunity<br />

to participate in an exhibition,”<br />

she said.<br />

CREATIVE: <strong>Selwyn</strong> Arts Heart Exhibition<br />

showcased <strong>25</strong>0 pieces created by artists in the<br />

district. ​<br />

Rockhouse has been<br />

involved with Arts Heart<br />

for 16 years. She is a firm<br />

believer in art being good<br />

for the soul.<br />

Said Rockhouse: “I enjoy<br />

seeing the new artists that<br />

enter and the expression on<br />

their face when they’ve sold<br />

a piece of work. It brings<br />

the community together,<br />

it gives them a sense of<br />

NEWS 19<br />

well being. Art gives them<br />

an avenue to express<br />

themselves, they otherwise<br />

might not have.”<br />

To help with that, Arts<br />

Heart only take 15 per cent<br />

of the commission made<br />

from the exhibition.<br />

BACKYARD CRITTERS<br />

A DELICATE little<br />

moth endemic to Japan<br />

is the azalea leaf miner<br />

(Caloptilia azaleella).<br />

Found almost worldwide<br />

where its azalea host<br />

is found, this brown<br />

and yellow moth has a<br />

wingspan of 10-13mm.<br />

Moths often sit on their<br />

posterior with front legs<br />

stretched out beneath their<br />

head. Adults lay eggs on<br />

the underside of leaves by<br />

the midrib.<br />

When hatched, the<br />

caterpillars are leaf miners<br />

for the first half of their<br />

larval life which creates a<br />

blister on the underside<br />

of the leaf. These mined<br />

areas eventually turn a<br />

characteristic brown. Once<br />

mid-sized, larvae migrate<br />

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in entomology<br />

(insects and other invertebrates). Each week he introduces a<br />

new species found in his backyard at Lincoln. His column aims<br />

to raise public awareness of biodiversity, the variety of living<br />

things around us. Check out the full list of invertebrates found at<br />

Moth from Japan found<br />

almost around the globe<br />

to the top of leaves, folding<br />

them using silk to make a<br />

refuge.<br />

Foraging by larger larvae<br />

create holes in leaves until<br />

pupation occurs, with<br />

adults emerging a week<br />

later.<br />

SPORT<br />

Weedons back on track<br />

with hard-fought win<br />

WEEDONS have bounced<br />

back after their quest for a<br />

perfect Canterbury County<br />

premier one-day season<br />

was undone, by beating<br />

Southbrook with form<br />

bowler Sam Clarke snaring<br />

another four-wicket haul.<br />

Clarke’s 4/39 in the previous<br />

round against Cheviot<br />

proved immaterial but<br />

his 4/20 on Saturday was<br />

pivotal as Weedons won by<br />

four wickets at Southbrook<br />

Park.<br />

Opting to bowl first on a<br />

tricky wicket was justified<br />

as the hosts were unable to<br />

gain any traction through<br />

their innings before being<br />

dismissed for 130 in the<br />

penultimate over; opener<br />

Sam Bing top-scored with a<br />

brisk 27 from 28 balls.<br />

Weedons made a solid<br />

start to their chase with<br />

Todd Inness making a<br />

well-timed 41 while fellow<br />

opener Jayden McIntyre<br />

played the anchor role with<br />

a patient 17 from 75 deliveries<br />

to guide the innings<br />

into triple figures before he<br />

exited in the 26th over.<br />

Southbrook then claimed<br />

three wickets for five runs<br />

but Arnav Deb eased<br />

Weedons’ nerves with an<br />

unbeaten 19, featuring four<br />

boundaries.<br />

Teams were often depleted<br />

by frontliners absent on<br />

representative duty, though<br />

Cheviot were able to fill any<br />

voids comfortably thanks to<br />

a stunning senior debut by<br />

Ronan Dillon.<br />

The 15-year-old claimed<br />

5/38 from his maximum<br />

allocation of nine overs<br />

to help Cheviot secure a<br />

14-run victory over winless<br />

Lincoln during seventh<br />

round action.<br />

Dillon’s emergence<br />

enabled the hosts to defend<br />

214/8 at Cheviot Domain, as<br />

Lincoln could only muster<br />

200/6 from their 45 overs.<br />

Weedons’ Sam Clarke bowls a quick delivery to<br />

Southbrook’s Damian Hansen.<br />

Earlier, Jack Hyde (46 off<br />

67) and Ryan Ellis (55 off<br />

87) set a strong foundation<br />

for Cheviot before Scott<br />

Burnett (42 off 27) round<br />

off the innings.<br />

Lincoln’s chase was built<br />

around a 107-run opening<br />

partnership between Hugh<br />

Paterson (80 off 108) and<br />

Cameron Powell (31 off 61)<br />

before tight bowling escalated<br />

the asking rate.<br />

Sefton ground out a<br />

tough 13-run win over<br />

North Canterbury rivals<br />

Oxford-Rangiora at Pearson<br />

Park on the back of<br />

quality batting by two club<br />

stalwarts – Tim Harrison<br />

and Nigel Granger.<br />

Batting in the unfamiliar<br />

position of second drop,<br />

Harrison anchored Sefton’s<br />

207/7 with an unbeaten<br />

85, a knock that dovetailed<br />

with a 1<strong>25</strong>-run partnership<br />

with Granger (59) for the<br />

sixth wicket.<br />

solid contributions from<br />

Lachie Stove (67) and Luke<br />

bowling – personified by<br />

20 runs from nine overs –<br />

left the target out of reach.<br />

to compensate for the<br />

unavailability of rep players<br />

for a dominant triumph<br />

METRO<br />

Look out for<br />

Metro changes<br />

Next week, Metro passengers will see<br />

some timetable changes and different buses<br />

on some routes.<br />

New public transport contracts coming<br />

into effect on Sunday 29 <strong>November</strong> bring<br />

with them a host of benefits. Passengers in<br />

the western and eastern suburbs will enjoy<br />

increased frequency on Route 3 (previously<br />

the Purple Line), while new electric and low<br />

emission vehicles are gradually coming into<br />

service across the network in the coming<br />

months.<br />

Buses may look different<br />

The change in contracts sees many<br />

services change to a different operator. The<br />

consequence for passengers is that different<br />

buses will be used on many routes from<br />

Sunday 29 <strong>November</strong>.<br />

If you are used to seeing a Red Bus<br />

branded vehicle on your route, it may now<br />

be a Go Bus branded vehicle instead, and<br />

vice versa. Your bus might also be in the new<br />

teal livery as it continues to roll out across<br />

the network.<br />

Wednesday <strong>November</strong> <strong>25</strong> <strong>2020</strong> <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> 23<br />

bus is the best way to confirm it’s your<br />

service.<br />

Timetables changes from Sunday<br />

Environment Canterbury senior manager<br />

public transport Stewart Gibbon says this<br />

is the second of three stages of timetable<br />

changes.<br />

“We’ve phased the changes to reduce the<br />

impact on our customers,” says Gibbon.<br />

“The majority of changes being made this<br />

month are necessary to implement the new<br />

operator contracts and to ensure compliance<br />

with changes to the Employment Relations<br />

Act.”<br />

Gibbon advises passengers to check now if<br />

their timetable or operator is changing on 29<br />

<strong>November</strong>, and plan ahead.<br />

“Our Journey Planner tool allows you to<br />

forward plan – you can plan your trip for 29<br />

<strong>November</strong> onwards to see if the timetable<br />

changes impact your usual journey,” he says.<br />

A full list of all changes, including the<br />

operator for each service and the timetable<br />

from 29 <strong>November</strong> onwards, is available at<br />

Netball<br />

venues to<br />

be shared<br />

• By Chris Barclay<br />

SELWYN NETBALL Centre<br />

has agreed to split their Saturday<br />

competition between the existing<br />

headquarters at Lincoln and the<br />

new <strong>Selwyn</strong> Sports Centre in<br />

Rolleston.<br />

After lengthy discussions between<br />

clubs and the district council, <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

Netball Centre president Andrea<br />

James confirmed they would utilise<br />

the $22 million indoor facility at Foster<br />

Park, which is due to be opened<br />

next April.<br />

Some players had reservations,<br />

from a social perspective, about<br />

grades not being held throughout<br />

Saturday.<br />

“A lot of people go down there<br />

for the whole day, coach different<br />

teams, watch their children, maybe<br />

umpire . . . that would be gone if<br />

they all go indoors at different times<br />

on different days,” <strong>Selwyn</strong> netball<br />

stalwart Lyn Miles said.<br />

“They (the council) couldn’t give<br />

any one sport a whole day.”<br />

James outlined the rationale for<br />

playing the Saturday competition<br />

between two venues, although the<br />

detail on how it would be run is still<br />

being finalised.<br />

“This should result in more teams<br />

being able to experience games<br />

indoors and a shorter playing day,”<br />

she said.<br />

The year one to year four<br />

programme is confirmed for the<br />

new centre.<br />

WINE 29<br />

Cheeky reds belie price points<br />

• By Mark Henderson<br />

A RECOMMENDED retail price<br />

is reached by adding a percentage<br />

mark-up to the “standard price”<br />

of a bottle of wine.<br />

This can be indicative of the<br />

final selling price when a retailer<br />

buys a few bottles or a case; however,<br />

lower-priced offerings are<br />

often purchased on promotional<br />

deals.<br />

Buying five cases, a layer (14<br />

cases), a half pallet (28 cases), a<br />

pallet (56 cases) and so on will<br />

make a significant impact on the<br />

cost price.<br />

Consequently, I’ve seen all the<br />

$20-plus wines reviewed here selling<br />

for under $20, which makes<br />

them pretty smart drinking.<br />

2017 d’Arenberg The<br />

Stump Jump GSM<br />

Price: $17.99<br />

Rating: Very good<br />

Smoke, earth, stones, a little oak<br />

spice with berryfruit in reserve;<br />

a wisp of salinity later. Raspberry<br />

and berryfruit lead the mediumweight<br />

palate that starts off feeling<br />

light and airy but swells nicely as<br />

it adds smoke and meaty touches<br />

with nicely judged tannins.<br />

Easy, uncomplicated drinking<br />

that really hits the spot. Rather<br />

moresish.<br />

www.darenberg.com.au<br />

2017 Yalumba Samuel’s<br />

Collection Barossa GSM<br />

Price: $26.99<br />

Rating: Very good to excellent<br />

Perfumed fragrance, playing in<br />

the raspberry/cherry spectrum<br />

before shifting to more savoury<br />

characters.<br />

Rounded, silky mouthfeel, richness<br />

and depth of flavour without<br />

overt weight. Chocolate, black<br />

tea, charry hints, sweetly fruited<br />

yet nicely balanced by savoury<br />

elements and fine tannins in<br />

support. Juicy and very appealing<br />

drinking.<br />

www.yalumba.com<br />

2017 Grant Burge Barossa<br />

Ink Shiraz<br />

Price: $23.99<br />

Rating: Very good<br />

Bold nose full of plum, char<br />

and spices with fragrance building.<br />

Noticeably sweet on the front<br />

palate with liqueur fruits, fruit<br />

cordial and berry jam; the luscious,<br />

soft and slippery mouthfeel<br />

underlining the viscosity to this.<br />

Tangy berryfruit and raspberry<br />

with freshening acidity help to<br />

pare back the sweetness.<br />

Unabashedly a crowd pleasing<br />

style that will win a legion of fans.<br />

www.grantburgewines.com.au<br />

2017 I Am George<br />

Langhorne Creek Shiraz<br />

Price: $19.99<br />

Rating: Excellent<br />

Chocmint, blueberry, dark berries,<br />

a wisp of tilled earth.<br />

Ripe yet not overtly sweet with<br />

lovely depth of flavour, fine tannic<br />

grip, balancing acidity, and a long,<br />

coffee and spice accented dry finish.<br />

Time adds savoury nuances<br />

and a tangy undercurrent, showing<br />

its youthful side. This rises<br />

above its price point, offering real<br />

interest now, yet some potential<br />

too.<br />

www.iamgeorge.com.au<br />

2017 Jacobs Creek Double<br />

Barrel Shiraz<br />

Price: $23.99<br />

Rating: Very good to excellent<br />

Juicy dark fruits, eucalypt,<br />

with evident volume on the<br />

nose.<br />

Dense and rich in the mouth,<br />

a raft of fruit sweetness at first,<br />

before moving to brooding dark<br />

fruits and spices.<br />

Structure in place here, flowing<br />

to a tea-leaf, smoke and char-like<br />

close. Approachability for the<br />

neophyte drinker, yet lots of interest<br />

for the wine enthusiast too.<br />

www.jacobscreek.com<br />

2016 Beresford McLaren<br />

Vale Shiraz<br />

Price: $26.99<br />

Rating: Very good to excellent<br />

Lushly perfumed nose, milk<br />

chocolate, mixed fruits. Time<br />

adds smoke and savoury elements.<br />

Depth of fruit here, yet<br />

matched by acidity giving a crisp<br />

brightness to the palate.<br />

Plum and fruitcake elements<br />

lead the way, a little eucalypt too<br />

with tanginess growing on the<br />

palate.<br />

Still youthful but already drinking<br />

rather well.<br />

Try adding fruit to your main course<br />

PRODUCE CAN sweeten your<br />

traditional creations and add an<br />

element of surprise.<br />

Stone fruit or berries are not<br />

normal ingredients you would<br />

add to a main course but try these<br />

easy recipes using blueberries and<br />

peaches for a tasty change.<br />

Blueberry, Chicken and<br />

Mustard Pasta<br />

Serves 4<br />

Ingredients<br />

500g skinned and boned chicken<br />

breasts<br />

salt and pepper to taste<br />

2 tbsp olive oil<br />

1½ cups pasta of your choice<br />

1 small onion, diced<br />

1 cup blueberries<br />

Dressing: <strong>25</strong>0g creme fraiche or<br />

light sour cream<br />

1-2 tbsp Dijon-style mustard<br />

2 tbsp milk, lemon juice<br />

Directions<br />

If the chicken breasts are large,<br />

cut in half lengthwise. Season.<br />

Heat half the oil in a frying pan.<br />

Saute until lightly coloured.<br />

Cover and cook for 12-15min,<br />

turning occasionally. Remove<br />

and cool slightly.<br />

Meanwhile, cook the pasta<br />

according to the packet instructions.<br />

Saute the onion in the remaining<br />

oil, until softened. Combine<br />

ingredients for dressing.<br />

Place blueberries in a large<br />

bowl.<br />

Using two forks, flake the<br />

chicken. Place in the bowl with<br />

the blueberries. Add the drained<br />

pasta and onions. Gently toss.<br />

Stir in the dressing. Serve warm<br />

or at room temperature. Great<br />

garnished with fresh herbs.<br />

Corn, Coconut and<br />

Coriander fritters with<br />

Serves 4<br />

Ingredients<br />

Fritters:<br />

2 cups whole kernel corn<br />

2 eggs, separated<br />

½ cup coconut milk<br />

½ cup coriander leaves, finely<br />

chopped<br />

salt and pepper to taste<br />

3 tbsp self-rising flour<br />

1-2 tbsp rice bran oil<br />

Peach Salsa:<br />

Contributors are Christchurch women Lorelei Jenner and Jenny Wilson and local<br />

Jane Downes. Jasmine Keir’s studio is in Keri Keri and Debra Powell is from the<br />

rural Waikato hamlet of Te Pahu.<br />

Lorelei Jenner paintings are somewhere between abstract and landscape. The<br />

images can be both familiar and interpretive, while at the same time mysterious,<br />

atmospheric and other worldly.<br />

Debra Powell’s alias in the pottery studio is ‘Little Betty’, her ceramic work has<br />

strong narrative themes, exploring relationships between people and nature,<br />

playing with convention and infusing the result with a gentle humour.<br />

Oxidised copper artist Jasmine Keir endeavours to create and understand the<br />

pure alchemy of the colours achievable using a vast variety of natural ingredients<br />

to react and colour her copper panels.<br />

Jenny Wilson has recreated a series of white porcelain moths these light<br />

mysterious creatures are pinned in reference to museum specimens; others rest<br />

on circles – an ancient Chinese symbol of the cycles of life, and of the cosmos.<br />

Jane Downes’ delicate themes are fabricated in steel. “A joyful look at the<br />

symbiotic relationship between bees and flowers and an observation of nature’s<br />

sacred geometry and spontaneity.”<br />

GARDENING 33<br />

Use water to make a statement<br />

AREAS OF interest in the<br />

backyard include pools, ponds<br />

and waterfalls – while plantings<br />

are still an integral part of any<br />

concept they’re being applied in<br />

less traditional ways.<br />

Today’s circulating pumps allow<br />

you to enjoy the soothing sight<br />

and sound of a water feature at<br />

nominal cost. You won’t necessarily<br />

have to call in teams of excavators<br />

either – even a small water<br />

feature can make a big impact on<br />

the surrounding garden.<br />

Let your creativity run riot. You<br />

can build your feature around<br />

anything from a Mexican or Grecian<br />

urn, to a rustic watering can,<br />

an old farm pump, pebbles, rock<br />

forms or even an artfully formed<br />

sheet of stainless steel.<br />

A wall covered in ceramic tiles<br />

or built from glass bricks with a<br />

shimmering sheet of water running<br />

down its face can create a<br />

stunning backdrop for striking<br />

leaf forms, especially when lit up.<br />

Pebbles and rocks can bring<br />

a softening, natural element or<br />

equally a sense of theatre to the<br />

garden. You might need some<br />

professional help with this one,<br />

especially if you’re attempting a<br />

naturalised design. But in summer,<br />

the sight of water cascading<br />

down a fern-clad rocky face into<br />

a cool, deep pool really is a thing<br />

of beauty and something that<br />

MY PRIDE AND JOY<br />

Vintage cars at Hororata<br />

The annual Hororata Highland Games<br />

had a new attraction this year with the<br />

addition of a selection of vintage cars on<br />

display led by two rare vintage Scottish cars<br />

in keeping with the Scottish theme of the<br />

event.<br />

“We got a couple of the oldest cars in the<br />

country. It’s an important part of the early<br />

fabric of early motoring in New Zealand,<br />

and these cars played a large part in the<br />

development of the country as well,” said<br />

rally organiser, Malcolm McGibbon, from<br />

the Canterbury branch of the Vintage Car<br />

Club.<br />

The Bonnie May of Argyll hales from<br />

Alexandria in Scotland. Owned by Tom<br />

and Jenny Stephens from Rolleston the<br />

car was rebuilt from the remains of two<br />

cars that Tom sourced from Drummond<br />

in Southland in 1965 and Wigram in<br />

Christchurch in 1971.<br />

Of his first purchase, Tom said: “The<br />

mechanicals were completely dismantled<br />

and scattered around the farm. The chassis,<br />

wheels and axles had been used as a farm<br />

trailer around the farm for many years. The<br />

wheels had steel bands welded to the rims<br />

but time had taken its toll and only the hubs<br />

were usable. We recovered an immaculate<br />

brass petrol tank and gearbox and engine<br />

completely stripped with many parts<br />

missing. There was no steering or radiator.”<br />

Once in possession of sufficient original<br />

parts, Tom restored the 1905 Argyll with<br />

the help of friends over a period of 10 years<br />

adding radiators and other parts to his<br />

collection from a clearance sale in the 1980s.<br />

The Argyll has travelled 5,000 miles since its<br />

first rally in 1987.<br />

The Bennetts Family’s 1912 Albian was<br />

also at the show. “1912 was the last year that<br />

the Glasgow-based Albian Motor Company<br />

made vehicles, before specializing in<br />

gearboxes. They were very popular during<br />

World War 1 as they were relatively simple<br />

to fix,” said owner, Don Bennetts from<br />

Christchurch.<br />

This particular Albian was owned by<br />

beer and spirit merchants. It was then lost<br />

for a while and turned up at a car sale yard<br />

just before World War 1. Apparently, it was<br />

traded in for a bike, which the person used<br />

to ride to Burnham to join the army.<br />

Don says a market gardener in Governors<br />

Bay bought the car and used it to take fruit<br />

and vegetables to market. At some point the<br />

car got away on the hill and crashed, ending<br />

up in two pieces. The front half was used as<br />

a saw bench and the back half as a trailer.<br />

Members of Don’s family gathered up<br />

the bits and started to restore it, and luckily<br />

managing to find the missing radiator. By<br />

1957 it was back on the road and has been<br />

in the Bennetts family ever since.<br />

Left: The 1905 Bonnie May<br />

of Argyll was built from the<br />

remains of two cars – its<br />

rebuild journey spanning<br />

from 1965 to 1987 when<br />

the finished car attended<br />

its first rally.<br />

Right: The Bennetts<br />

Family’s 1912 Albian was<br />

one of the last Glasgowbased<br />

Albian Motor<br />

Company made vehicles<br />

and spent a number years<br />

as a wreck used for things<br />

other than motoring.<br />

Get your car ready to hit<br />

Wednesday <strong>November</strong> <strong>25</strong> <strong>2020</strong> <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> 35<br />

the road these holidays<br />

New Zealanders are lucky to live in one of the most<br />

beautiful and safe countries in the world. With the<br />

happy buzz of the pre-Christmas period beginning<br />

more kiwis will be making plans to hit the road, to<br />

rediscover how picturesque their own country is. It is<br />

crucial before the busy festive season begins that we<br />

make sure our vehicles are safe to drive and in tip-top<br />

condition.<br />

Nigel and Lisa Fleck, owner/operators of Jones<br />

Road Auto, love living in <strong>Selwyn</strong> and being part of<br />

the close-knit, vibrant community. They believe it’s<br />

more important than ever for them to support local<br />

businesses and community groups whenever they can.<br />

Jones Road Auto is a family business with 15 staff who<br />

are also <strong>Selwyn</strong> district locals. They are incredibly<br />

grateful to their community for supporting them and<br />

choosing to shop local.<br />

There have been many challenges that New<br />

Zealanders have needed to face this year which we<br />

could never have envisioned. “Mainly this year has<br />

been about being able to swiftly change our business<br />

to cope with Covid, implementing new safety and<br />

hygiene policies for our customers and staff,” said<br />

Lisa. They have seen a huge increase in demand in the<br />

months since lockdown and have hired an additional<br />

mechanic to help keep up with that.<br />

Jones Road Auto employ a great team of<br />

experienced, high performing mechanics. They<br />

have five full time mechanics on site with a wide<br />

range of experience including a European specialist,<br />

motorbike mechanic and vintage specialist. All<br />

their staff have an average of 20 years’ experience in<br />

passenger, 4WD and light commercial vehicles. They<br />

also offer specialised fleet services to their commercial<br />

customers.<br />

Jones Road Auto offer full mechanical repairs and<br />

servicing as well as a WOF testing station which is<br />

open 6 days a week. They have the latest in diagnostic<br />

equipment as well as a stock of tyres, batteries and a<br />

36 <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> Wednesday <strong>November</strong> <strong>25</strong> <strong>2020</strong><br />

Toyota Hilux helps home renovation<br />

WE’VE BEEN busy at the Kiddie<br />

household.<br />

There’s new timber on the<br />

house, new windows are going in,<br />

there’s fresh paint, and in readiness<br />

for a the painters to give the<br />

fences a tidy-up I’ve had to trim<br />

back a succession of shrubs and<br />

small trees.<br />

That on top of some landscaping<br />

work I needed to do after a<br />

drain was repaired. Throughout<br />

all of these enhancements I’ve put<br />

two new Toyota Hiluxes to good<br />

use. I took the foliage to green<br />

waste processing, building debris<br />

to the transfer station, and I’ve<br />

also been to the garden centre to<br />

uplift two loads of pebbles to finish<br />

the landscaping.<br />

That’s the versatility today’s<br />

double cab pick-up/utility offers,<br />

it is the quintessential vehicle for<br />

the everyday role, yet doubles as<br />

a versatile carry-all when tasks<br />

need to be completed, not to<br />

mention it’s towing ability and<br />

payload capacity – 3500kg and<br />

around one-tonne respectively.<br />

This evaluation focuses on<br />

the SR specification Hilux, I had<br />

two double cab variants in a<br />

row – one a cab-chassis with an<br />

aluminium flat deck, the other<br />

was a standard wellside.<br />

Toyota has done considerable<br />

work on the Hilux, there’s been<br />

an extensive change of look, it is<br />

bolder and more aggressive on<br />

the outside, while major interior<br />

changes incorporate new display<br />

graphics and the addition of a<br />

larger touch screen in the centre<br />

of the dashboard proper.<br />

Mechanically, the mainstream<br />

turbo diesel engine has had a big<br />

boost in power, thanks to a larger<br />

turbocharger. Toyota now claims<br />

150kW and 500Nm a 15 per cent<br />

increase for power and 11 per<br />

cent increase in torque.<br />

Of course, you can still buy the<br />

Hilux with petrol power if you so<br />

wish, but that option is limited<br />

to two entry-point Workmate<br />

models, both with just twowheel-drive.<br />

The other 16 variants are all<br />

diesel-powered, but you do have<br />

the choice of manual transmission<br />

in some of those, along with<br />

just 2WD options.<br />

Both variants I drove were<br />

four-wheel-drive capable and<br />

fitted with a six-speed automatic<br />

gearbox.<br />

While the Hilux is destined for<br />

a working role, what Toyota have<br />

done on the inside is to keep it<br />

family-friendly, there are all the<br />

VERSATILE: An aluminium flat deck on the cab-chassis<br />

model provides a multitude of load carrying options<br />

including carrying a load of pebbles for the Kiddie<br />

landscaping project.<br />

TOYOTA HILUX SR: Built for a working role.<br />

features and there is as much<br />

comfort as you can expect for<br />

something built over a ladder<br />

chassis and load-bearing suspension.<br />

There are many car-like features<br />

fitted to the Hilux and, of course,<br />

the Toyota suite of SafetySense<br />

technologies contribute to a<br />

five-star Australasian New Car<br />

Assessment Program rating.<br />

I can also safely say the new Hilux<br />

is smoother, while the power<br />

is boosted remarkably, it hasn’t<br />

lost its finesse, the engine throbs<br />

away in typical diesel fashion,<br />

but it isn’t loud and doesn’t seem<br />

stressed when building towards<br />

the top part of the rev band.<br />

Interaction between the engine<br />

and gearbox is fluid, shifts are<br />

clean and smooth. Drive, of<br />

course, is normally channelled<br />

rearwards, electric switching will<br />

engage the front axles in both low<br />

and high ratio depending on the<br />

driver’s preference.<br />

It must also be mentioned<br />

that the SR Hilux gets all of the<br />

four-wheel-drive trickery that is<br />

demanded in the working role. I<br />

only used it for a short evaluation<br />

purpose, and there are no surprises<br />

there, even without deeptreaded<br />

tyres the Hilux ute will<br />

scale humps and mounds without<br />

fear of getting stuck nor becoming<br />

grounded thanks to 286mm<br />

of clearance underneath.<br />

On that subject little has<br />

changed in terms of suspension,<br />

• Price – Toyota Hilux SR<br />

cab-chassis, $48,490<br />

(wellside, $49,990)<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

5<strong>25</strong>5mm (53<strong>25</strong>mm);<br />

width, 1855mm; height,<br />

1815mm<br />

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,<br />

four-wheel-drive,<br />

2755cc, 150kW, 500Nm,<br />

six-speed automatic.<br />

• Performance – 0-100km/h,<br />

10sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 7.9l/100km<br />

the rear axle is still located by leaf<br />

springs, while a civilised independent<br />

wishbone system is fitted<br />

up front.<br />

My loads didn’t measure up to<br />

anything that would challenge<br />

the payload rating of the two<br />

utes, but I can report both laden<br />

and unladen the ride is perfectly<br />

acceptable, so for those who<br />

need to travel long distances<br />

recreationally it’s good to know<br />

the family will be well looked<br />

after, even those seated in the<br />

back will find there is satisfactory<br />

rake on the seats.<br />

I took both SR variants on a<br />

high country run through the<br />

Malvern Hills, with the boost in<br />

engine outputs the Hilux feels<br />

free and doesn’t require much<br />

energy from the driver to keep<br />

relaxed motion, and if you need<br />

that mid-range boost for a highway<br />

overtake, it fairly scampers<br />

when the accelerator is given a<br />

nudge.<br />

Toyota also claims an 11 per<br />

cent decrease in fuel usage, the<br />

Hilux in SR form is rated with<br />

a combined cycle average of<br />

7.9-litres per 100km. At 100km/h<br />

the engine isloping over at just<br />

1800rpm, returning a 7l/100km<br />

instantaneous figure, resulting in<br />

around 9l/100km for both models<br />

when I took them back to the<br />

dealership.<br />

One of the most notable<br />

features about SR specification is<br />

that it arrives with steel wheels.<br />

This is something Toyota has<br />

done with Hilux for a few years<br />

now, if you want alloy wheels<br />

you’d need to upgrade. I’m a big<br />

believer in steel, they are stronger<br />

and lighter and don’t detract<br />

much from the aggressive look<br />

of the new model. However, it is<br />

something buyers might consider.<br />

I’m due to drive two SR5<br />

variants soon, and that is the high<br />

grade specification rounding out<br />

the series at $58,990. If SR-only<br />

form is preferable you’ll save<br />

around $9000, and with the cabchassis<br />

model listing at $48,490<br />

there are a wealth of considerations.<br />

It’s always been that way<br />

with Hilux, there is a ute for<br />

every purpose and that’s why<br />

it’s so popular, there are choices<br />

that easily fill the working or<br />

recreational role.

LOCATION, LIFESTYLE AND OPTIONS<br />

The location, on the doorstep of our fantastic<br />

alpine and river recreation environment and the<br />

views to the Alps from the property are possibly<br />

sufficient to convince a buyer without considering<br />

the list of other features and benefits also on offer.<br />

As well as being less than 50kms from Christchurch<br />

and having good access to schooling recreation<br />

and social facilities features include the perm<br />

material 6 year old home and its mature garden<br />

setting, the additional 8.0 Ha of yard and farmland<br />

and approx 1600 m 2 of buildings and sheds<br />

associated with a pig fattening business currently<br />

run by the Vendors.<br />

Whilst this will be of interest to those who may wish<br />

to pursue continued activity in the pork industry,<br />

this property offers significant land use and lifestyle<br />

options and the vast array of buildings will be of<br />

interest to a wide range of buyers.<br />

Strong growth in real estate<br />

13<br />

Demand for properties in Canterbury<br />

is currently very strong although, the<br />

number of listed properties for sale<br />

is significantly below what we would<br />

normally expect leading into summer.<br />

After several years of steady but slowish<br />

growth, Canterbury real estate may now<br />

be in catch-up mode, as low interest rates<br />

and returning Kiwis spur on a market<br />

seen to offer some of the best value and<br />

lifestyle opportunities in New Zealand.<br />

James<br />

Twiss,<br />

Harcourts<br />

Four<br />

Seasons<br />

co-owner<br />

Harcourts Four Seasons co-owner<br />

James Twiss says sales have been “really<br />

strong” in the past few months with<br />

demand from expats, investors in the<br />

North Island, first-home buyers and locals<br />

looking to upgrade or change pace.<br />

“It’s very much a correction or catch-up<br />

on what has been a steady yet cautious<br />

market over the last two to three years,”<br />

James says. “Time will tell if it’s a boom<br />

or not. However, there are several factors<br />

that suggest more gains could be on the<br />

way.” These include the new motorway<br />

systems north and south of Christchurch,<br />

which are opening up a much larger area<br />

to commuting and convenient lifestyle<br />

living, and swathes of new housing,<br />

which are creating modern, desirable<br />

communities that in turn generate<br />

further interest. Nearby beaches, forests,<br />

mountains and ski fields add to the<br />

appeal.<br />

James also states that even before<br />

low interest rates are considered, buyer<br />

confidence has been supported by good<br />

affordability compared to other parts of<br />

the country, a growing population and the<br />

peace of mind of post-quake builds.<br />

“The <strong>Selwyn</strong> and Waimakariri Districts<br />

have always offered good, secure real<br />

estate. We’re seeing the region continue<br />

to develop and offer more to its residents,<br />

and with that some really exciting and<br />

valuable opportunities.”<br />

Canterbury is expanding<br />

With a network of offices within<br />

and around Christchurch, Harcourts<br />

Four Seasons is well positioned to play<br />

a leading role in the region’s growth.<br />

Branches are located in Hornby, Lincoln,<br />

Rolleston Rangiora, Kaiapoi, Hanmer<br />

Springs, Belfast and The Palms.<br />

James says movement from fringe<br />

areas to the city centre has been greatly<br />

enhanced by new roading infrastructure,<br />

opening up new markets that buyers have<br />

been keen to embrace.<br />

The Southern Motorway extension<br />

streamlines the trip between Rolleston<br />

and Christchurch, while the Northern<br />

Corridor lessens the distance from<br />

Christchurch to Kaiapoi and Rangiora.<br />

“The access to jobs makes these areas<br />

extremely good value. New developments<br />

are being snapped up and there are<br />

numerous subdivisions being worked<br />

on throughout the area,” James says. “As<br />

developments bring the city closer, the<br />

stage is being set for ongoing growth in<br />

popular lifestyle areas and new, familyfriendly<br />

neighbourhoods.”<br />

Support for lending<br />

Interest rates have been reduced to<br />

record lows and aren’t expected to rise for<br />

years. Meanwhile, Loan to Value Ratio<br />

(LVR) restrictions have been dropped<br />

from 80 per cent to 70 per cent.<br />

Mortgage payments are now often lower<br />

than rents. This bodes well for investors.<br />

For people who are ready to buy, the<br />

Reserve Bank of New Zealand is ready to<br />

help.<br />

There is also an anticipated funding<br />

boost in the pipeline as homeowners with<br />

fixed interest rates see their terms expire<br />

in the next couple of years and move to a<br />

lower interest rate, freeing up a significant<br />

chunk of money they can potentially<br />

reinvest. As James indicated, this is one<br />

factor that counts against waiting.<br />

For anyone looking to buy or sell,<br />

Harcourts Four Seasons has them<br />

covered, he says.<br />

“We’re part of a very large network,<br />

including overseas contacts, and<br />

being local means we know the area<br />

exceptionally well.”<br />

Harcourts Four Seasons is the largest<br />

real estate firm in the <strong>Selwyn</strong> and<br />

Waimakariri districts with more than 90<br />

sales consultants across eight branches.<br />

Harcourts has been named the<br />

country’s most trusted real estate brand<br />

by Reader’s Digest every year since the<br />

award’s inception nearly eight years ago,<br />

and has won the Quality Service Gold<br />

Award for the past three years.<br />

Your guide to all things Real Estate<br />

in the <strong>Selwyn</strong> District<br />

The rising popularity of lifestyle blocks:<br />

Live the dream in Lincoln<br />

Picture this: against a backdrop of the Southern<br />

Alps, surrounded by the rural farmlands of Lincoln,<br />

your architecturally designed dream home can<br />

sit on solid, fertile land that’s perfect for leading a<br />

self-sufficient life. Verdeco Park is a community-inwaiting,<br />

ready for anyone who wants lifestyle block<br />

without the commitment of 15-20 acres.<br />

What’s the big deal?<br />

It’s not just about living the dream. Families are<br />

looking for space to custom-build their ideal lifestyle,<br />

and many are doing it with help. Janelle Pritchard,<br />

Marketing Manager for Verdeco Park, says: “There<br />

are plenty of multi-generational homes going in. In<br />

some cases, older parents are helping young families<br />

to fund the build and then living in a second flat on<br />

the property. They then have company as they grow<br />

older. The bonus here, is that changes earmarked in<br />

the <strong>Selwyn</strong> District Council plan mean these flats can<br />

soon be rented out, creating a revenue stream for the<br />

family.<br />

85% of buyers in Verdeco Park are from the <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

area, and are usually those who are onto their 3rd or<br />

4th homes. There are also some overseas returnees,<br />

and rural farmers who are looking to downsize but<br />

aren’t prepared for a full city move.<br />

What to look out for<br />

Whether you’re using a home build company on<br />

a smaller lifestyle section or using an architect and<br />

private builder for your custom dream home, there<br />

are things you still need to consider. Most important<br />

are the services available to your boundary—power,<br />

water, and waste. Lifestyle blocks typically have a<br />

longer distance from house to boundary as well, so<br />

you may need to budget for eco pumps to remove<br />

your waste. In Verdeco Park, you’ll also get broadband<br />

whereas other developments might only offer the<br />

copper network. If you’re making the jump, you’ll<br />

already have a good idea of what you want, just<br />

make sure you check what’s already there and what<br />

you still need. And be sure to keep adequate budget<br />

for landscaping—there will likely be rules around<br />

completion that you need to follow—and adhere to<br />

fencing requirements. And if you’re just not sure how<br />

to go about it all, using a building broker like My<br />

Build Sorted will help.<br />

So, if you’re considering a lifestyle change there’s<br />

still limited land available in Verdeco Park, and<br />

it’s worth checking out. Or you can call Rebecca<br />

Duncan in the sales office on 021 711 813 for more<br />

information.<br />
