Second world championship in the bag

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

• By Andy McGechan

HAMISH Macdonald has

clinched another world

championship title.

The West Melton rider

wrapped up the FIM Junior

Enduro GP World Championships

title, his second

consecutive world enduro

crown, in Portugal last week, a

thrilling bookend to the FIM

125cc Youth Enduro GP World

Championships title he won

last year.

It has been a stellar season for

Macdonald – he had also been

home in New Zealand briefly

Bid to

avert

forest fire

destroying

homes

• By Matt Slaughter

PEOPLE LIVING near a forested

area in Darfield will be told by fire

chiefs tomorrow how to get out if

a blaze breaks out over summer.

McHughs Forest Park has been

identified by Fire and Emergency

New Zealand as a potential hazard

due to its close proximity to

residential properties and businesses

and the abundance of fuels

which come from these.

Darfield deputy chief fire officer

Ken Muscroft said the Lake Ohau

fire last month, which destroyed

48 buildings and burnt through

5040ha of land, underpinned why

a meeting is necessary.

“We haven’t had any [fires]

there [the forest park] yet, that’s

the main thing. We’re getting

prepared in case.

“I think if you look at Lake

Ohau you get a good idea [why],”

he said.

He does not know if the forest,

which he said is near a large number

of houses, could experience

a blaze like Lake Ohau but it is

important people are prepared if

the worst happens.

GOOD ON landlord John

for chipping in to make the

On page 5 today we share

the back story on why bollards

have gone in. The photo

of the vehicle in the dairy is a

fairly self-explanatory reason

why.

Giltrap and the community

committee put in $4000

each for the 10 bollards

which will give businesses

and pedestrians alike the ideal

safety net when mistakes

are made by people behind

the wheel.

Community committee

secretary Pauline Hayes said

they had been approached

by residents and business

owners.

The community committee

listened and the outcome has

been a great solution.

MORE PEOPLE have moved

to the district from other parts

of New Zealand than anywhere

else in the country this year.

Selwyn Business Group member

and Harcourts Rolleston

manager Richard Tait says good

employment opportunities and

affordable housing in the district

may be reasons for this.

Statistics New Zealand’s latest

data on internal migration gain

as of the end of June, shows 2100

people have moved to the district

this year.

Tait said the district and

Canterbury as a whole have

bounced back from the impacts

of Covid-19 faster than other

parts of New Zealand, making it

a desirable place to move to and

work in.

“In real estate, if you look at

what you were doing and what

you missed out on, we’ve recovered,

eh. Most businesses, from

what I can see, have recovered

and now are moving forward,

that would be a fair assessment

but I can’t speak for everyone,

that would just be within our

[business] group.”

He said some of the most

common New Zealand locations

people are moving to the

district from are Auckland and

Hamilton.

“I think everyone’s had a look

at their lives after Covid and

thought well, you know what,

we could go and live in [Selwyn]

and be debt-free and find some

form of job and get rid of a

massive mortgage and live quite

comfortable, so that’s really

noticeable,” he said.

Tauranga had the second most

internal migration, with 1900

people moving there from other

parts of New Zealand.

Twelve-hundred people moved

across the country to Waikato,

which had the third-largest

growth.

Championship decided

in final enduro round

• From page 1

Macdonald was only back in

the country at that time because

of international chaos caused by

Covid-19, but it meant he was

able to race the full Kiwi series for

the first time since 2017.

The Sherco rider’s build-up for

the 2020 world championships

began immediately.

“Once the borders reopened

and racing rescheduled,

I was on a plane and

back to England. The

team had a race bike

in England and I

was straight into the

final British sprint

championship rounds

managing three of the

four outright wins and

taking the E2 British

sprint title,” he said.

“To change things up a

bit and push the fitness, I took on

the big boys Graeme Jarvis and

Billy Bolt in the British extreme

championship round, a bit of fun

and I was happy to jump on the

podium with them.”

The 21-year-old has clearly

followed in the wheel-tracks of

such Kiwi enduro legends as

Stefan Merriman, Chris Birch

and Paul Whibley, packing up his

helmet a boots and headed offshore

to seek fame and fortune

Hamish

Macdonald

for the first time in 2018.

This year was only his third

season in Europe, but he had

already set tongues wagging

on his debut in the youth class

of the FIM Enduro GP World

Championships in 2018.

Finishing no worse that sixth

through his debut season in 2018

and celebrating two wins in Italy,

Macdonald wound up a close

second overall in the

youth series, finishing

behind Chile’s Ruy

Barbosa and ahead of

Britain’s Daniel Mundell,

and last year he was just

as impressive.

He ended his 2019

campaign with an

18-point winning

margin over Italy’s

Matteo Pavoni, with

another Italian, Claudio

Spanu, claiming third overall,

while Frenchman Nathan Bererd

(Husqvarna) and then Spain’s

Sergio Navarro (Husqvarna)

completed the top five for 2019.

This year it was his own Sherco

team-mate, French rider Théo

Espinasse, who threatened

him most, but Macdonald

eventually clinched the 2020

FIM Junior Enduro GP World

Championships title at the final

round.

DESTROYED: A meeting is being held in Darfield tomorrow to avoid scenes like these

after the Lake Ohau fire last month.

High winds increase fire risk

• From page 1

The meeting at Darfield

Recreation Centre at 7pm will

cover the McHughs Forest Park

fire plan.

The plan was created by the

district council, FENZ police

and other organisations to

protect people in case of a forest

fire.

The meeting will cover

evacuation zones and what to do

if a fire breaks out.

The risk of fire in the forest

is greatly increased during

periods of high wind,

particularly a strong nor’west

that could blow embers from a

fire into Darfield.

Said Malvern Ward district

councilor Jenny Gallagher:

“We’ve got to prepare people

if there is an event and that

plantation goes up in flames,

especially if it’s a nor’west wind,

because there’s a lot of properties

on the east side of that plantation

that would be affected.

“It’s just in my mind, the

council are being very proactive

and preparing people for events

which, hopefully, will never

happen.”

$8000 bollards makes shops safer

• By Matt Slaughter

LINCOLN Convenience Store

owners Holly and Murray have

had two cars crash through their

store in the last few years.

It has come as a big relief for

the couple that bollards have

now been installed to protect

their store and others in the

Gerald St block of shops.

The 10 bollards, which cost

$8000, were jointly funded.

The block of shops’ landlord

John Giltrap put $4000 of his

own money towards them

and the other $4000 came

from the Lincoln Community

Committee’s discretionary

response fund.

Murray said the first crash

happened about three years ago

when a man in a four-wheeldrive

hit the gutter outside of the

store, got a fright and stepped

on the accelerator instead of the

break.

No one was hurt but said Murray:

“He buried his four-wheeldrive

right up in the back of

the shop. He could have wound

down the window and we could

have served him.

“It made an absolute mess and

it was scary,” he said

PROTECTION:

Murray and

Holly say

new bollards

outside their

store will keep

themselves,

other shop

owners and

customers

safe. PHOTO:

GEOFF SLOAN

The second incident last year

was when a car was left in gear

and travelled forward through

the shop’s entrance. The damage

was not as bad this time but he

said both crashes forced the store

to close for a few days, leading to

loss of income.

Murray said it was lucky that

no one in the shop was injured

on both occasions and a relief

that no one at the block of shops

will be in future thanks to the

bollards.

“We’re just so pleased to have

them because it’s dangerous for

us.

“It’s safety, of course, for us

and people who work here and

for our customers,” he said.

Said Holly: “That’s a lot of

relief. In both of the accidents,

we were so lucky no one got

hit.”

Giltrap said he wasn’t willing

to wait for another crash to happen

and this is why he decided to

help pay half of the cost for the

bollards.

“There’s been two near misses,

it was time to put a protection

in.”

Community committee

secretary Pauline Hayes said

its decision to put some of its

discretionary funds towards the

that crashed into the store three years

ago.

bollards was because “it was an

accident waiting to happen.”

“It was a health a safety issue

and we had been approached by

residents and also some of the

people who had their businesses

there in that block of shops.

“The community committee

took it on board and decided

to allocate some of our

discretionary funds towards it,”

she said.

ONE OF New Zealand’s

best-known cricketers will be

immortalised at the new Selwyn

Sports Centre.

The wooden floor sports

hall – half of the court space

at the centre at Foster Park –

will be named the John F. Reid

Courts.

Reid played 19 tests and 25

one-day internationals between

1979 and 1986. He still holds

the record as the fastest New

Zealander to score 1000 runs in

test cricket, set in 1985.

His career test batting average

of 46 ranks him amongst the top

10 players in New Zealand test

cricket history.

After a stint as Auckland

Cricket chief executive, he

moved to Selwyn in 1996

working for New Zealand

Cricket as cricket operations

manager and high performance

manager.

Through these roles he led the

establishment of NZC’s national

high performance centre at

Lincoln University, which

included the development of

the international standard Bert

Sutcliffe Oval.

Reid has been the district

council’s major projects

property manager since 2015,

overseeing some significant

building projects.

The four sprung wood courts

in the hall are due to be laid

in the next fortnight as the

centre marks another milestone

towards opening to the public in

time for the 2021 winter sport

season.

Mayor Sam Broughton said

the naming will acknowledge

both Reid’s work as a champion

for the courts and community

sport in Selwyn, and his huge

contribution to sport across the

country.

Reid also spent nine years

in senior roles at Sport New

Zealand (previously SPARC)

supporting community

and establishing a national

programme to identify and

develop talented young athletes.

A champion of community

sport, Reid was an inaugural

trustee of the Selwyn Sports

Trust and advocated to the

district council on the need for a

sport and recreation centre that

prioritised use by community

level providers within the

district.

“We’re lucky to have one

of the country’s best sports

administrators working with a

passion for the people of Selwyn

on projects that will serve the

community for a long time,”

said Broughton.

“John has led the

implementation phase of

developing Foster Park and

continues to provide the

leadership to deliver the

the district gains a facility

that will serve the whole

Drinking

water meets

standards

THE DISTRICT’S drinking water

has received a clean bill of health

for complying with drinking

water standards under the Health

Act.

This comes after last year

about 3000 Doyleston and Leeston

residents were issued a boil

water notice after high levels of

E coli were found in one towns’

water supply.

Now, the district’s water supplies

have been found to complying

with national drinking water

standards in all areas assessed in

the Ministry of Health’s annual

compliance report for 2019/20.

The report, has been presented

to the district council and shows

nitrate levels are below the

maximum allowable levels and

that all the council’s supplies

were fully compliant for bacteria

in both the treatment plants and

reticulation.

The areas considered in the

report included bacteriological,

protozoa and chemical compliance.

For protozoa compliance, eight

schemes were not compliant for

the full year. These were schemes

that were being upgraded during

the year or that will be upgraded

in this financial year.

“Five million [dollars] will

also be used to fund short-term

classrooms at schools in the

South Island facing severe

pressure from rapid roll growth,”

he said.

The funding will go towards a

total of 28 classrooms in schools

in Canterbury, Otago, Nelson

and Tasman, with a total of 616

student places.

The other $7 million will

deliver permanent roll growth

classrooms at Prebbleton School,

Waimea College in Nelson, St

Martins School in Christchurch,

and Grants Braes School in

Dunedin.

“Families rightly expect their

children to be able to learn in

warm, dry and comfortable,” said

Hipkins.

ABOUT 18 years ago Glenn

Anderson left a corporate

position with Nestle for a

hands-on role as a supermarket

manager.

He and his wife Tracy Anderson

haven’t looked back since

and are now the new owners of

New World in Rolleston.

They started in their new role

about five weeks ago. They have

previously managed supermarkets

in Nelson, Waimate and

Christchurch.

Glenn said some of the things

that have kept him in the supermarket

industry for so many

years are the people he gets

to serve and the teams he has

worked with.

“It’s your team that you really

enjoy and your costumers as

well. So it’s a combination of

both of those.”

Rolleston residents have been

friendly and good to deal with.

“It’s amazing how many of the

customers have come up to me

and introduced themselves.

“It’s a really, really friendly,

good community store,” he said.

Tracy said taking over the

ownership of the Rolleston store,

will be a challenge but she is

excited about it.

“We were looking forward to

the challenge of a bigger store

so, for us, we’re obviously a

husband and wife team so we

complement each other quite

nicely.

“For us, it was a business challenge

but also, it was a wee bit

about coming back to our roots,”

she said.

There have been many memorable

moments during Glenn’s

time managing supermarkets

but a few stand out.

Said Glenn: “We had a nude

man walking through the shop

one time, so we had to try and

get him under control a little bit.

said.

Glenn and Tracy have made

the move to Christchurch with

their two children Xavier and

be able to serve the Rolleston

community and the store prides

itself on its selection and service.

Back in the sulky and winner’s circle

• By Joshua Smith

IT’S BEEN more than a decade

since Jo Herbert saluted the

judge, but her winning drive

behind Blue Chip Delight at

Motukarara Raceway on Sunday

showed she hasn’t lost any of her

talent.

Blue Chip Delight made a solid

start to sit midfield before Herbert

asked him to improve threewide

down the back straight

to sit outside leader Eastwood

Isabella.

They hit the lead at the top of

the straight and didn’t relinquish

their advantage, holding out the

fast-finishing The Kaik to win by

a neck, with a further head back

to Bettor Believe It in third.

Herbert was delighted to get

the win after such a long hiatus.

“It felt really good, it’s been a

long time between drinks,” she

said.

“I was pleased with the horse,

he went well.”

A pioneer for female drivers

in New Zealand, Herbert won

193 races in the cart before she

was forced to step away from the

game 10 years ago to look after

her son Brooklyn.

“At the time it was in the toohard

basket, he wasn’t that well,”

Herbert said.

“It got too hard, so I just focused

on him. He is 13 now so he

is quite good at self-managing.”

SUCCESS: Jo Herbert brings Blue Chip Delight back to the birdcage after winning at

Motukarara on Sunday.

Herbert returned to the industry

last year after the urging

of trainer Stephen Boyd and she

landed her ideal job with current

employers Colin and Julie De-

Filippi, for whom she drove Blue

Chip Delight on Sunday, earlier

this year.

“I was initially influenced by

Stephen Boyd in getting me out

there, that definitely helped,”

Herbert said.

“I now work for Colin and

Julie, you couldn’t ask for nicer

people.

“When I was pregnant he

ended up training my trotter. I

kept working him right up until

I was 30 weeks pregnant and

then sent him to Colin. He has

always been like my father in

harness racing.”

When Herbert heard the De-

Filippi’s were looking for another

worker, she said she was quick to

get on the phone, even though

she was on the other side of the

world at the time.

“When I heard he was looking

for someone I was straight on

the phone from Spain. We went

over there for five weeks back in

February,” she said.

“We were quite lucky because

two days after we got home

Barcelona was in lockdown. We

timed perfectly.”

Herbert’s win on Sunday has

brought her just six wins shy of

200 driving career wins, a mark

she would have tried to attain 10

years ago had she known she was

so close.

“At the time when I stopped

I hadn’t actually looked at that

(career win tally),” Herbert said.

“It was more that I had to do it

(give up driving) because of my

son.

“If I had known back then that

I was that close I wouldn’t have

given it up quite so soon.”

Herbert said DeFilippi has

been trying to get her back in the

cart for some time, but she has

been happy working behind the

scenes.

“He has been trying to, but I

have been quite happy just gearing

up, it hasn’t fazed me,” she

said.

But with three horses in the

field of the Country Feasts Pace

(2170m) on Sunday, DeFilippi

was able to twist Herbert’s arm

into taking the drive behind

Blue Chip Delight, and they were

both rewarded.

“It was great to get the win, but

I am just happy to be working

for him,” Herbert said.

Save water

now or face

restrictions

– council

RESIDENTS ARE urged to be

smart with their water use this

summer to avoid restrictions.

District council infrastructure

group manager Murray Washington

said after a drier winter

than usual, the National Institute

of Water and Atmospheric

Research is predicting a hot, dry

summer.

He said now is the time to get

into good habits to ensure there

is no need for restrictions.

“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,” he said.

The district council is

recommending 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.

LIAM CUNNAH was the

driving force behind social

workers becoming a permanent

part of the military.

Now, the Glentunnel resident

has been named New Zealand

Defence Force civilian of the

year.

Cunnah provides professional

clinical social work services to

personnel at Burnham Military

Camp as well as their family

and, in his spare time, the wider

Canterbury community.

He was part of a trial to introduce

social workers to the NZDF

four years ago – a trial which led

to them becoming permanent

employees. Cunnah said the

importance of providing this

service to personnel could not be

under-estimated.

“We live in an ever-changing

and unpredictable world which

can place significant pressures

on soldiers and their families.

“As the types of issues become

more complex in their presentation,

a more holistic approach to

wellness support and management

is required, and this is

where social work comes into its

own,” he said.

Cunnah said the trusting

relationship built between local

command teams and the social

work service was crucial.

“Without this, I would not

be in the position I am to have

been nominated and chosen as a

recipient of this special award.

“As someone who prefers to

be behind the scenes promoting

the successes of others, this is an

unfamiliar yet humbling experience

to be receiving this award.

“The success of the Burnham

social work service has been

supported and enhanced by the

exceptional work of my fellow

colleagues within the Burnham

integrated wellness team,” he

said.

Last year, Cunnah undertook

postgraduate study in family

therapy, as well as having studied

Gottman couples therapy

this year.

“I chose to do this as it was a

need that I identified around the

ever-changing relationship challenges

faced by soldiers and their

dependents.

“As social workers we are

innately driven by our desire

to promote and enhance the

self-determination and empowerment

of both our clients and

often the wider organisations

that we are employed by,” he

said.

Cunnah also supports the

wider Canterbury community

in his own time by providing

clinical input as a board member

for Salisbury Street Foundation,

a rehabilitation centre that aims

to reintegrate serious offenders

back into the community.

His citation said his dedication

to the work he did within the

in the district due to its developing

“It’s probably just a trend.

There’s a lot of building here, there

is that opportunity for people to

actually target those sort of areas.

With all that building it’s just an

opportunity for dishonest people

to steal stuff.”

Harker recommended people

building houses should install

sites. He said police are currently

Libraries. The stories, written by Hayley Tate, celebrate diversity and

highlight the differences in people’s backgrounds and journeys to

Selwyn. Selwyn Times continues its coverage.

Surinder Tandon

LINCOLN resident Dr

Surinder Tandon is a

textile engineer with

a passion for weaving

together communities

of all cultures and

backgrounds.

Originally from New

Delhi, Tandon and his wife

Archna moved to New

Zealand in 1988. He had

just completed his PhD

in textile engineering and

landed a job at the Wool

Research Organisation of

New Zealand in Lincoln.

“They were doing a lot of

interesting work in textile

engineering and fabric

product development,” he

said.

Combined with his love

for cricket, he thought it

offered was the perfect

opportunity to mix career

and sport.

“But of course, New

Zealand is far away from

India. It was quite new, but

it was exciting and challenging.”

He credits his work colleagues

for helping him

settle into New Zealand

and connecting him with

other Indian families in

the area. They showed him

around, and he was able to

socialise with others in the

wider community.

While juggling his career

and the arrival of his two

children, Tandon got together

with new migrants

from India and formed a

“potluck social group” to

meet up during the weekends

for picnics and other

family activities.

In 1998, they then

formed the Indian Social

and Cultural Club which

is now the major Indian association

in Christchurch.

A member of the Lincoln

Rotary Club, he plays an

important role in bringing

the club’s CultureFest to

life for Canterbury residents.

It’s a festival where

various ethnic groups can

showcase their music,

dance and food, he says.

“Its culture galore!”

Since CultureFest made

its debut in Rolleston

NEWS 15

A passion for weaving

together communities

A SERIES of drop-in

sessions to support people

into work, and employers

with staffing needs, is

kicking off across the

district.

Held at public libraries

in Leeston, Lincoln,

Rolleston and Darfield,

employment zone clinics

are sessions where people

can access one-to-one

support around job

seeking, redundancy, staff

retention and recruitment.

The sessions, presented

by Sarah Parker, work

broker for the Ministry of

Social Development, aim

to provide more support

for local communities,

assisting people into sustainable

employment, and

providing a personal and

quick service tailored to

their needs.

“Employment is still

going strong in the community

and businesses are

really open to supports

from MSD,’” said Parker.

“By being on the ground

in the community, I’m

able to tailor services to

the person or business

on a one to one basis,

assisting with their needs

directly. We’ve received

really positive feedback

by people surprised when

they discover the amount

of supports which are

available to businesses,”

she said.

MSD regional labour

market manager Regan

in 2004 more and more

cultural groups have been

participating and the event

has grown into the highly

anticipated annual district

council and Christchurch

Multicultural Council run

event in Lincoln.

It’s also an event that

aims to promote and

encourage social inclusion

and equality, and Tandon

believes it has become an

important vehicle for helping

to prevent cultural and

ethnic divisions.

It’s long way from the

early “potluck social

group” he formed with

other Indian migrants in

the early 1990s.

Tandon’s passion for culture

and community grew,

and he went on to represent

the Indian community

on the Christchurch

Multicultural Council, and

has been its president for

the last ten years.

“I grew a lot of passion

for serving ethnic communities,”

he said.

“Not just Indian communities,

but all communities,

including migrants

and refugees.”

Christchurch has over

180 ethnicities and has

become very diverse, he

said.

“I realised that the

needs of all migrants are

the same for settlement,

such as culture, language

barriers, employment

challenges and

homesickness, of course.”

Library sessions to cover

all aspects of employment

Jackson said it is important

employers and job seekers

are fully aware of the funding

and services currently

on offer to support them.

“The drop-in sessions

provide an opportunity

for people to meet with us

to discuss their needs, and

are an effective engagement

channel enabling us

to connect them to what is

available,” he said.

Both employers and people

needing work can drop

in during the session times

and have the opportunity

to talk directly with Sarah

about their employment

needs.

The sessions are free and

can be found on Selwyn

library Facebook pages.

Sporting champion to be honoured

at Selwyn Sports Centre

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

Selwyn Sports Centre.

The wooden floor sports hall at the Selwyn Sports Centre at Foster Park will be named the John F.

Reid Courts.

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

another milestone towards opening to the public in time for the 2021 winter sport season.

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

courts and community sport in Selwyn, and his huge contribution to sport across the country.

Originally from Auckland, Mr Reid represented New Zealand at cricket in 19 Test Matches and 25

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

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

cricket history.

He went on to be Chief Executive for Auckland Cricket before moving to Selwyn in 1996 to be

New Zealand Cricket’s High Performance Manager and Operations Manager.

In these roles he led the establishment of the Cricket National High Performance Centre at Lincoln

University, including the development of an international standard playing facility – the Bert

Sutcliffe Oval.

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

community sport delivery nationally and establishing a national programme to identify and

develop talented young athletes.

A champion of community sport, Mr Reid was an inaugural trustee of the Selwyn Sports Trust

and advocated to the Selwyn District Council on the need for a sport and recreation centre that

prioritised use by community level providers within the district.

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

significant building projects, Council Group Manager Property Douglas Marshall says.

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

the people of Selwyn on projects that will serve the community for a long time. John has led

the implementation phase of developing Foster Park and continues to provide the leadership to

deliver the Selwyn Sports Centre.”

Council and Lincoln University supporting

businesses from the land

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

supporting Selwyn’s food, wine and agritourism businesses.

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

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

build capacity and upskill, along with opportunities to grow and strengthen networks between businesses.

The event will include presentations on research from members of Lincoln University’s Centre of

Excellence – Sustainable Tourism for Regions, Landscapes and People, including ‘Identifying and

communicating Selwyn’s food story’ and ‘Getting local produce on local menus’.

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

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

Services and Facilities Denise Kidd says.

“We know agriculture and agritourism are a huge part of Selwyn’s economy and we have some great

innovative and quality produce here. By getting those businesses together with restaurants, cafés and

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

have from the land.”

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

The Proposed District Plan –

considering starting a new

home business?

The Proposed District Plan includes some new proposed rules that may

affect people starting a new business from home.

Under the proposed plan running a business from home continues

to be a permitted activity in both rural and residential areas, but

some rules around when you may need a resource consent are

proposed to change.

The main change is around the size your business premises can

be before you need to apply for a resource consent. New home

businesses will not need a resource consent if there are no more

than two staff who live off-site and the maximum floor area used for

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

residential zone.

In residentially-zoned areas, the proposed rules would mean

business activity involving customer visits and/or deliveries, could

only occur between 7.30am–7pm and all business goods would

need to be stored indoors. In the current District Plan business

activity involving visits by customers and clients, is limited to

between 7am–10pm on any day.

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

or deliveries, could occur between 7am–7pm. In the current District

Plan there are no limits on hours of the operation in the Rural Zone.

The changes being proposed are aimed at ensuring that home

businesses don’t potentially adversely affect the look and feel of

residential or rural areas. The changes are also aimed at striking a

better balance between making it easy to set up a home business

and encouraging bigger businesses to locate in the district’s

commercial and business centres.

It is important to note that these changes would only apply to those

starting a new home business and will not have effect until the

proposed plan is operational, which is expected to happen by the

end of 2022. If you currently run a business from home, you will not

be affected by the proposed change of rules.

Anyone interested in finding out more about how the proposed

changes to starting a new home business affect them please

contact the Council by calling 0800 SELWYN (735 996) or emailing

contactus@selwyn.govt.nz.

You can find out more about the Proposed District Plan

and make a submission until 5pm Friday 11 December at

selwyn.govt.nz/districtplanreview.

It might not sound it at first, but the Selwyn Youth Council is a life-changing opportunity, Youth Council

member Inaki Cepeda says.

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

of age who live in Selwyn.

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

for young people in Selwyn.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Inaki has also helped with the Youth Council’s Passion Podcast series, interviewing Selwyn residents

about their passions and with a BOOST Halloween event supporting the Burnham Military Camp family

Halloween party.

Youth Council members have also presented to

Council on issues affecting youth, and hosted

the ‘What do YOUth think’ surveys which

this year gave young people in Selwyn the

opportunity to help design the youth space for

the Rolleston Town Centre.

Mayor Sam Broughton says the Youth Council

makes a valuable difference. “The Youth Council

has been an active part of making Selwyn a

great place to live. Anyone who wants to be

part of that and help make cool things happen

and support other young people should put

their name forward for consideration.”

Anyone interested can complete an application

online. Applications close Saturday 30

November. For more information or to apply

please visit selwyn.govt.nz/youthcouncil or

Exhibition showcases

district’s artists

THE ANNUAL Selwyn

Arts Heart Exhibition

sprung to life earlier this

month at the Rolleston

Community Centre.

It was attended by 280

people who visited from all

over Selwyn and Canterbury.

On display were 250

pieces of art made by artists

from the district.

The exhibition – supported

by the district council’s

Creative Communities

Fund – was 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 chairwoman Wendy

Rockhouse said 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,”

she said.

CREATIVE: Selwyn Arts Heart Exhibition

showcased 250 pieces created by artists in the

district. ​

Rockhouse has been

involved with Arts Heart

for 16 years. She is a firm

believer in art being good

for the soul.

Said Rockhouse: “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

NEWS 19

well being. Art gives them

an avenue to express

themselves, they otherwise

might not have.”

To help with that, Arts

Heart only take 15 per cent

of the commission made

from the exhibition.

BACKYARD CRITTERS

A DELICATE little

moth endemic to Japan

is the azalea leaf miner

(Caloptilia azaleella).

Found almost worldwide

where its azalea host

is found, this brown

and yellow moth has a

wingspan of 10-13mm.

Moths often sit on their

posterior with front legs

stretched out beneath their

head. Adults lay eggs on

the underside of leaves by

the midrib.

When hatched, the

caterpillars are leaf miners

for the first half of their

larval life which creates a

blister on the underside

of the leaf. These mined

areas eventually turn a

characteristic brown. Once

mid-sized, larvae migrate

Weedons back on track

with hard-fought win

WEEDONS have bounced

back after their quest for a

perfect Canterbury County

premier one-day season

was undone, by beating

Southbrook with form

bowler Sam Clarke snaring

another four-wicket haul.

Clarke’s 4/39 in the previous

round against Cheviot

proved immaterial but

his 4/20 on Saturday was

pivotal as Weedons won by

four wickets at Southbrook

Park.

Opting to bowl first on a

tricky wicket was justified

as the hosts were unable to

gain any traction through

their innings before being

dismissed for 130 in the

penultimate over; opener

Sam Bing top-scored with a

brisk 27 from 28 balls.

Weedons made a solid

start to their chase with

Todd Inness making a

well-timed 41 while fellow

opener Jayden McIntyre

played the anchor role with

a patient 17 from 75 deliveries

to guide the innings

into triple figures before he

exited in the 26th over.

Southbrook then claimed

three wickets for five runs

but Arnav Deb eased

Weedons’ nerves with an

unbeaten 19, featuring four

boundaries.

Teams were often depleted

by frontliners absent on

representative duty, though

Cheviot were able to fill any

voids comfortably thanks to

a stunning senior debut by

Ronan Dillon.

The 15-year-old claimed

5/38 from his maximum

allocation of nine overs

to help Cheviot secure a

14-run victory over winless

Lincoln during seventh

round action.

Dillon’s emergence

enabled the hosts to defend

214/8 at Cheviot Domain, as

Lincoln could only muster

200/6 from their 45 overs.

Weedons’ Sam Clarke bowls a quick delivery to

Southbrook’s Damian Hansen.

Earlier, Jack Hyde (46 off

67) and Ryan Ellis (55 off

87) set a strong foundation

for Cheviot before Scott

Burnett (42 off 27) round

off the innings.

Lincoln’s chase was built

around a 107-run opening

partnership between Hugh

Paterson (80 off 108) and

Cameron Powell (31 off 61)

before tight bowling escalated

the asking rate.

Sefton ground out a

tough 13-run win over

North Canterbury rivals

Oxford-Rangiora at Pearson

Park on the back of

quality batting by two club

stalwarts – Tim Harrison

and Nigel Granger.

Batting in the unfamiliar

position of second drop,

Harrison anchored Sefton’s

207/7 with an unbeaten

85, a knock that dovetailed

with a 125-run partnership

with Granger (59) for the

sixth wicket.

Oxford-Rangiora had

solid contributions from

Lachie Stove (67) and Luke

Waghorn (33) but tight

bowling – personified by

Todd Waller’s concession of

20 runs from nine overs –

left the target out of reach.

A depleted Leeston-

Southbridge were unable

to compensate for the

unavailability of rep players

as Darfield eclipsed the visitors’

103/9 inside 16 overs.

Liam Foulkes set the tone

for a dominant triumph

with 6/14 from nine overs

as a makeshift line-up were

rolled in 27.1 overs though

Leeston-Southbridge were

still second on the competition

ladder behind

Weedons on net run rate.

Ohoka had the bye.

Short scoreboards:

Southbrook 138 (S Bing

27; S Clarke 4/20, J Richards

2/23, A Deb 2/25) lost

to Weedons 142/6 (T Inness

41; A Prouse 2/27, J Green

2/31) by four wickets.

Cheviot 214/8 (R Ellis

55, J Hyde 46, S Burnett 42;

R Dillon 5/38, E Paterson

2/20) beat Lincoln 200/6 (H

Paterson 80, C Powell 31, L

Robinson 30) by 14 runs.

Sefton 207/7 (T Harrison

85no, N Granger 59;

S Fleming 2/26, L Stove

2/30) beat Oxford-Rangiora

194/7 (L Stove 67, L Waghorn

33; M Laffey 2/39) by

13 runs.

Leeston-Southbridge

103 (L Foulkes 6/14) lost

to Darfield 107/3 (B Innes

METRO

Look out for

Metro changes

Next week, Metro passengers will see

some timetable changes and different buses

on some routes.

New public transport contracts coming

into effect on Sunday 29 November bring

with them a host of benefits. Passengers in

the western and eastern suburbs will enjoy

increased frequency on Route 3 (previously

the Purple Line), while new electric and low

emission vehicles are gradually coming into

service across the network in the coming

months.

Buses may look different

The change in contracts sees many

services change to a different operator. The

consequence for passengers is that different

buses will be used on many routes from

Sunday 29 November.

If you are used to seeing a Red Bus

branded vehicle on your route, it may now

be a Go Bus branded vehicle instead, and

vice versa. Your bus might also be in the new

teal livery as it continues to roll out across

the network.

Checking the destination screen on the

Metro

network

From Sunday 29 November,

look out for:

Wednesday November 25 2020 Selwyn Times 23

bus is the best way to confirm it’s your

service.

Timetables changes from Sunday

Environment Canterbury senior manager

public transport Stewart Gibbon says this

is the second of three stages of timetable

changes.

“We’ve phased the changes to reduce the

impact on our customers,” says Gibbon.

“The majority of changes being made this

month are necessary to implement the new

operator contracts and to ensure compliance

with changes to the Employment Relations

Act.”

Gibbon advises passengers to check now if

their timetable or operator is changing on 29

November, and plan ahead.

“Our Journey Planner tool allows you to

forward plan – you can plan your trip for 29

November onwards to see if the timetable

changes impact your usual journey,” he says.

A full list of all changes, including the

operator for each service and the timetable

from 29 November onwards, is available at

metro.co.nz

Netball

venues to

be shared

• By Chris Barclay

SELWYN NETBALL Centre

has agreed to split their Saturday

competition between the existing

headquarters at Lincoln and the

new Selwyn Sports Centre in

Rolleston.

After lengthy discussions between

clubs and the district council, Selwyn

Netball Centre president Andrea

James confirmed they would utilise

the $22 million indoor facility at Foster

Park, which is due to be opened

next April.

Some players had reservations,

from a social perspective, about

grades not being held throughout

Saturday.

“A lot of people go down there

for the whole day, coach different

teams, watch their children, maybe

umpire . . . that would be gone if

they all go indoors at different times

on different days,” Selwyn netball

stalwart Lyn Miles said.

“They (the council) couldn’t give

any one sport a whole day.”

James outlined the rationale for

playing the Saturday competition

between two venues, although the

detail on how it would be run is still

being finalised.

“This should result in more teams

being able to experience games

indoors and a shorter playing day,”

she said.

The year one to year four

programme is confirmed for the

new centre.

It’s our annual

Christmas

shopping night

Friday 4th December

from 5pm

Discounts on the

WINE 29

Cheeky reds belie price points

• By Mark Henderson

A RECOMMENDED retail price

is reached by adding a percentage

mark-up to the “standard price”

of a bottle of wine.

This can be indicative of the

final selling price when a retailer

buys a few bottles or a case; however,

lower-priced offerings are

often purchased on promotional

deals.

Buying five cases, a layer (14

cases), a half pallet (28 cases), a

pallet (56 cases) and so on will

make a significant impact on the

cost price.

Consequently, I’ve seen all the

$20-plus wines reviewed here selling

for under $20, which makes

them pretty smart drinking.

2017 d’Arenberg The

Stump Jump GSM

Price: $17.99

Rating: Very good

Smoke, earth, stones, a little oak

spice with berryfruit in reserve;

a wisp of salinity later. Raspberry

and berryfruit lead the mediumweight

palate that starts off feeling

light and airy but swells nicely as

it adds smoke and meaty touches

with nicely judged tannins.

Easy, uncomplicated drinking

that really hits the spot. Rather

moresish.

www.darenberg.com.au

2017 Yalumba Samuel’s

Collection Barossa GSM

Price: $26.99

Rating: Very good to excellent

Perfumed fragrance, playing in

the raspberry/cherry spectrum

before shifting to more savoury

characters.

Rounded, silky mouthfeel, richness

and depth of flavour without

overt weight. Chocolate, black

tea, charry hints, sweetly fruited

yet nicely balanced by savoury

elements and fine tannins in

support. Juicy and very appealing

drinking.

www.yalumba.com

2017 Grant Burge Barossa

Ink Shiraz

Price: $23.99

Rating: Very good

Bold nose full of plum, char

and spices with fragrance building.

Noticeably sweet on the front

palate with liqueur fruits, fruit

cordial and berry jam; the luscious,

soft and slippery mouthfeel

underlining the viscosity to this.

Tangy berryfruit and raspberry

with freshening acidity help to

pare back the sweetness.

Unabashedly a crowd pleasing

style that will win a legion of fans.

www.grantburgewines.com.au

2017 I Am George

Langhorne Creek Shiraz

Price: $19.99

Rating: Excellent

Chocmint, blueberry, dark berries,

a wisp of tilled earth.

Ripe yet not overtly sweet with

lovely depth of flavour, fine tannic

grip, balancing acidity, and a long,

coffee and spice accented dry finish.

Time adds savoury nuances

and a tangy undercurrent, showing

its youthful side. This rises

above its price point, offering real

interest now, yet some potential

too.

www.iamgeorge.com.au

2017 Jacobs Creek Double

Barrel Shiraz

Price: $23.99

Rating: Very good to excellent

Juicy dark fruits, eucalypt,

with evident volume on the

nose.

Dense and rich in the mouth,

a raft of fruit sweetness at first,

before moving to brooding dark

fruits and spices.

Structure in place here, flowing

to a tea-leaf, smoke and char-like

close. Approachability for the

neophyte drinker, yet lots of interest

for the wine enthusiast too.

www.jacobscreek.com

2016 Beresford McLaren

Vale Shiraz

Price: $26.99

Rating: Very good to excellent

Lushly perfumed nose, milk

chocolate, mixed fruits. Time

adds smoke and savoury elements.

Depth of fruit here, yet

matched by acidity giving a crisp

brightness to the palate.

Plum and fruitcake elements

lead the way, a little eucalypt too

with tanginess growing on the

palate.

Still youthful but already drinking

rather well.

FOOD 31

Try adding fruit to your main course

PRODUCE CAN sweeten your

traditional creations and add an

element of surprise.

Stone fruit or berries are not

normal ingredients you would

add to a main course but try these

easy recipes using blueberries and

peaches for a tasty change.

Blueberry, Chicken and

Mustard Pasta

Serves 4

Ingredients

500g skinned and boned chicken

breasts

salt and pepper to taste

2 tbsp olive oil

1½ cups pasta of your choice

1 small onion, diced

1 cup blueberries

Dressing: 250g creme fraiche or

light sour cream

1-2 tbsp Dijon-style mustard

2 tbsp milk, lemon juice

Directions

If the chicken breasts are large,

cut in half lengthwise. Season.

Heat half the oil in a frying pan.

Saute until lightly coloured.

Cover and cook for 12-15min,

turning occasionally. Remove

and cool slightly.

Meanwhile, cook the pasta

according to the packet instructions.

Saute the onion in the remaining

oil, until softened. Combine

ingredients for dressing.

Place blueberries in a large

bowl.

Using two forks, flake the

chicken. Place in the bowl with

the blueberries. Add the drained

pasta and onions. Gently toss.

Stir in the dressing. Serve warm

or at room temperature. Great

garnished with fresh herbs.

Corn, Coconut and

Coriander fritters with

Peach Salsa

Serves 4

Ingredients

Fritters:

2 cups whole kernel corn

2 eggs, separated

½ cup coconut milk

½ cup coriander leaves, finely

chopped

salt and pepper to taste

3 tbsp self-rising flour

1-2 tbsp rice bran oil

Peach Salsa:

2 ripe peaches, halved, stoned,

peeled and thinly sliced

1 tbsp lemon juice

2 tbsp finely chopped rocket

pinch sugar

½ tsp chilli paste

Directions

FLAVOURS:

(Left) – Pasta

with mustard

and blueberries.

(Above) – Corn

fritters with

peach salsa.

Blanch and drain the corn.

Cool. Combine with the egg

yolks, coconut milk, coriander,

salt, pepper and flour.

Heat the oil in a large nonstick

frying pan. Take heaped tablespoons

of the corn mixture and

place in the pan. You will need to

work in batches.

Cook on low heat until bubbles

appear on the top. Flip over

and continue cooking until the

undersides are golden. Keep

warm in the oven while cooking

the remainder. You should have

12 fritters.

Meanwhile, combine the ingredients

for the salsa.

To serve, place one fritter in

the centre of each of four serving

plates. Top with a little salsa. Top

with another fritter, more salsa

and a final fritter. You will have

four stacks.

Great drizzled with a sweet

chilli sauce.

To Have & To Hold, November 28 - December 15 at Little River Gallery.

A shorter than most exhibition in order to allow for early pick up for Christmas.

Contributors are Christchurch women Lorelei Jenner and Jenny Wilson and local

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

rural Waikato hamlet of Te Pahu.

Lorelei Jenner paintings are somewhere between abstract and landscape. The

images can be both familiar and interpretive, while at the same time mysterious,

atmospheric and other worldly.

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

strong narrative themes, exploring relationships between people and nature,

playing with convention and infusing the result with a gentle humour.

Oxidised copper artist Jasmine Keir endeavours to create and understand the

pure alchemy of the colours achievable using a vast variety of natural ingredients

to react and colour her copper panels.

Jenny Wilson has recreated a series of white porcelain moths these light

mysterious creatures are pinned in reference to museum specimens; others rest

on circles – an ancient Chinese symbol of the cycles of life, and of the cosmos.

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

symbiotic relationship between bees and flowers and an observation of nature’s

sacred geometry and spontaneity.”

GARDENING 33

Use water to make a statement

AREAS OF interest in the

backyard include pools, ponds

and waterfalls – while plantings

are still an integral part of any

concept they’re being applied in

less traditional ways.

Today’s circulating pumps allow

you to enjoy the soothing sight

and sound of a water feature at

nominal cost. You won’t necessarily

have to call in teams of excavators

either – even a small water

feature can make a big impact on

the surrounding garden.

Let your creativity run riot. You

can build your feature around

anything from a Mexican or Grecian

urn, to a rustic watering can,

an old farm pump, pebbles, rock

forms or even an artfully formed

sheet of stainless steel.

A wall covered in ceramic tiles

or built from glass bricks with a

shimmering sheet of water running

down its face can create a

stunning backdrop for striking

leaf forms, especially when lit up.

Pebbles and rocks can bring

a softening, natural element or

equally a sense of theatre to the

garden. You might need some

professional help with this one,

especially if you’re attempting a

naturalised design. But in summer,

the sight of water cascading

down a fern-clad rocky face into

a cool, deep pool really is a thing

of beauty and something that

MY PRIDE AND JOY

Vintage cars at Hororata

The annual Hororata Highland Games

had a new attraction this year with the

addition of a selection of vintage cars on

display led by two rare vintage Scottish cars

in keeping with the Scottish theme of the

event.

“We got a couple of the oldest cars in the

country. It’s an important part of the early

fabric of early motoring in New Zealand,

and these cars played a large part in the

development of the country as well,” said

rally organiser, Malcolm McGibbon, from

the Canterbury branch of the Vintage Car

Club.

The Bonnie May of Argyll hales from

Alexandria in Scotland. Owned by Tom

and Jenny Stephens from Rolleston the

car was rebuilt from the remains of two

cars that Tom sourced from Drummond

in Southland in 1965 and Wigram in

Christchurch in 1971.

Of his first purchase, Tom said: “The

mechanicals were completely dismantled

and scattered around the farm. The chassis,

wheels and axles had been used as a farm

trailer around the farm for many years. The

wheels had steel bands welded to the rims

but time had taken its toll and only the hubs

were usable. We recovered an immaculate

brass petrol tank and gearbox and engine

completely stripped with many parts

missing. There was no steering or radiator.”

Once in possession of sufficient original

parts, Tom restored the 1905 Argyll with

the help of friends over a period of 10 years

adding radiators and other parts to his

collection from a clearance sale in the 1980s.

The Argyll has travelled 5,000 miles since its

first rally in 1987.

The Bennetts Family’s 1912 Albian was

also at the show. “1912 was the last year that

the Glasgow-based Albian Motor Company

made vehicles, before specializing in

gearboxes. They were very popular during

World War 1 as they were relatively simple

to fix,” said owner, Don Bennetts from

Christchurch.

This particular Albian was owned by

beer and spirit merchants. It was then lost

for a while and turned up at a car sale yard

just before World War 1. Apparently, it was

traded in for a bike, which the person used

to ride to Burnham to join the army.

Don says a market gardener in Governors

Bay bought the car and used it to take fruit

and vegetables to market. At some point the

car got away on the hill and crashed, ending

up in two pieces. The front half was used as

a saw bench and the back half as a trailer.

Members of Don’s family gathered up

the bits and started to restore it, and luckily

managing to find the missing radiator. By

1957 it was back on the road and has been

in the Bennetts family ever since.

Left: The 1905 Bonnie May

of Argyll was built from the

remains of two cars – its

rebuild journey spanning

from 1965 to 1987 when

the finished car attended

its first rally.

Right: The Bennetts

Family’s 1912 Albian was

one of the last Glasgowbased

Albian Motor

Company made vehicles

and spent a number years

as a wreck used for things

other than motoring.

been about being able to swiftly change our business

to cope with Covid, implementing new safety and

hygiene policies for our customers and staff,” said

Lisa. They have seen a huge increase in demand in the

months since lockdown and have hired an additional

mechanic to help keep up with that.

Toyota Hilux helps home renovation

WE’VE BEEN busy at the Kiddie

household.

There’s new timber on the

house, new windows are going in,

there’s fresh paint, and in readiness

for a the painters to give the

fences a tidy-up I’ve had to trim

back a succession of shrubs and

small trees.

That on top of some landscaping

work I needed to do after a

drain was repaired. Throughout

all of these enhancements I’ve put

two new Toyota Hiluxes to good

use. I took the foliage to green

waste processing, building debris

to the transfer station, and I’ve

also been to the garden centre to

uplift two loads of pebbles to finish

the landscaping.

That’s the versatility today’s

double cab pick-up/utility offers,

it is the quintessential vehicle for

the everyday role, yet doubles as

a versatile carry-all when tasks

need to be completed, not to

mention it’s towing ability and

payload capacity – 3500kg and

around one-tonne respectively.

This evaluation focuses on

the SR specification Hilux, I had

two double cab variants in a

row – one a cab-chassis with an

aluminium flat deck, the other

was a standard wellside.

Toyota has done considerable

work on the Hilux, there’s been

an extensive change of look, it is

bolder and more aggressive on

the outside, while major interior

changes incorporate new display

graphics and the addition of a

larger touch screen in the centre

of the dashboard proper.

Mechanically, the mainstream

turbo diesel engine has had a big

boost in power, thanks to a larger

turbocharger. Toyota now claims

150kW and 500Nm a 15 per cent

increase for power and 11 per

cent increase in torque.

Of course, you can still buy the

Hilux with petrol power if you so

wish, but that option is limited

to two entry-point Workmate

models, both with just twowheel-drive.

The other 16 variants are all

diesel-powered, but you do have

the choice of manual transmission

in some of those, along with

just 2WD options.

Both variants I drove were

four-wheel-drive capable and

fitted with a six-speed automatic

gearbox.

While the Hilux is destined for

a working role, what Toyota have

done on the inside is to keep it

family-friendly, there are all the

VERSATILE: An aluminium flat deck on the cab-chassis

model provides a multitude of load carrying options

including carrying a load of pebbles for the Kiddie

landscaping project.

TOYOTA HILUX SR: Built for a working role.

features and there is as much

comfort as you can expect for

something built over a ladder

chassis and load-bearing suspension.

There are many car-like features

fitted to the Hilux and, of course,

the Toyota suite of SafetySense

technologies contribute to a

five-star Australasian New Car

Assessment Program rating.

I can also safely say the new Hilux

is smoother, while the power

is boosted remarkably, it hasn’t

lost its finesse, the engine throbs

away in typical diesel fashion,

but it isn’t loud and doesn’t seem

stressed when building towards

the top part of the rev band.

Interaction between the engine

and gearbox is fluid, shifts are

clean and smooth. Drive, of

course, is normally channelled

rearwards, electric switching will

engage the front axles in both low

and high ratio depending on the

driver’s preference.

It must also be mentioned

that the SR Hilux gets all of the

four-wheel-drive trickery that is

demanded in the working role. I

only used it for a short evaluation

purpose, and there are no surprises

there, even without deeptreaded

tyres the Hilux ute will

scale humps and mounds without

fear of getting stuck nor becoming

grounded thanks to 286mm

of clearance underneath.

On that subject little has

changed in terms of suspension,

• Price – Toyota Hilux SR

cab-chassis, $48,490

(wellside, $49,990)

• Dimensions – Length,

5255mm (5325mm);

width, 1855mm; height,

1815mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2755cc, 150kW, 500Nm,

six-speed automatic.

• Performance – 0-100km/h,

10sec

• Fuel usage – 7.9l/100km

the rear axle is still located by leaf

springs, while a civilised independent

wishbone system is fitted

up front.

My loads didn’t measure up to

anything that would challenge

the payload rating of the two

utes, but I can report both laden

and unladen the ride is perfectly

acceptable, so for those who

need to travel long distances

recreationally it’s good to know

the family will be well looked

after, even those seated in the

back will find there is satisfactory

rake on the seats.

I took both SR variants on a

high country run through the

Malvern Hills, with the boost in

engine outputs the Hilux feels

free and doesn’t require much

energy from the driver to keep

relaxed motion, and if you need

that mid-range boost for a highway

overtake, it fairly scampers

when the accelerator is given a

nudge.

Toyota also claims an 11 per

cent decrease in fuel usage, the

Hilux in SR form is rated with

a combined cycle average of

7.9-litres per 100km. At 100km/h

the engine isloping over at just

1800rpm, returning a 7l/100km

instantaneous figure, resulting in

around 9l/100km for both models

when I took them back to the

dealership.

One of the most notable

features about SR specification is

that it arrives with steel wheels.

This is something Toyota has

done with Hilux for a few years

now, if you want alloy wheels

you’d need to upgrade. I’m a big

believer in steel, they are stronger

and lighter and don’t detract

much from the aggressive look

of the new model. However, it is

something buyers might consider.

I’m due to drive two SR5

variants soon, and that is the high

grade specification rounding out

the series at $58,990. If SR-only

form is preferable you’ll save

around $9000, and with the cabchassis

model listing at $48,490

there are a wealth of considerations.

It’s always been that way

with Hilux, there is a ute for

every purpose and that’s why

it’s so popular, there are choices

that easily fill the working or

recreational role.

LOCATION, LIFESTYLE AND OPTIONS

The location, on the doorstep of our fantastic

alpine and river recreation environment and the

views to the Alps from the property are possibly

sufficient to convince a buyer without considering

the list of other features and benefits also on offer.

As well as being less than 50kms from Christchurch

and having good access to schooling recreation

and social facilities features include the perm

material 6 year old home and its mature garden

setting, the additional 8.0 Ha of yard and farmland

and approx 1600 m 2 of buildings and sheds

associated with a pig fattening business currently

run by the Vendors.

Whilst this will be of interest to those who may wish

to pursue continued activity in the pork industry,

this property offers significant land use and lifestyle

options and the vast array of buildings will be of

interest to a wide range of buyers.

Strong growth in real estate

13

Demand for properties in Canterbury

is currently very strong although, the

number of listed properties for sale

is significantly below what we would

normally expect leading into summer.

After several years of steady but slowish

growth, Canterbury real estate may now

be in catch-up mode, as low interest rates

and returning Kiwis spur on a market

seen to offer some of the best value and

lifestyle opportunities in New Zealand.

James

Twiss,

Harcourts

Four

Seasons

co-owner

Harcourts Four Seasons co-owner

James Twiss says sales have been “really

strong” in the past few months with

demand from expats, investors in the

North Island, first-home buyers and locals

looking to upgrade or change pace.

“It’s very much a correction or catch-up

on what has been a steady yet cautious

market over the last two to three years,”

James says. “Time will tell if it’s a boom

or not. However, there are several factors

that suggest more gains could be on the

way.” These include the new motorway

systems north and south of Christchurch,

which are opening up a much larger area

to commuting and convenient lifestyle

living, and swathes of new housing,

which are creating modern, desirable

communities that in turn generate

further interest. Nearby beaches, forests,

mountains and ski fields add to the

appeal.

James also states that even before

low interest rates are considered, buyer

confidence has been supported by good

affordability compared to other parts of

the country, a growing population and the

peace of mind of post-quake builds.

“The Selwyn and Waimakariri Districts

have always offered good, secure real

estate. We’re seeing the region continue

to develop and offer more to its residents,

and with that some really exciting and

valuable opportunities.”

Canterbury is expanding

With a network of offices within

and around Christchurch, Harcourts

Four Seasons is well positioned to play

a leading role in the region’s growth.

Branches are located in Hornby, Lincoln,

Rolleston Rangiora, Kaiapoi, Hanmer

Springs, Belfast and The Palms.

James says movement from fringe

areas to the city centre has been greatly

enhanced by new roading infrastructure,

opening up new markets that buyers have

been keen to embrace.

The Southern Motorway extension

streamlines the trip between Rolleston

and Christchurch, while the Northern

Corridor lessens the distance from

Christchurch to Kaiapoi and Rangiora.

“The access to jobs makes these areas

extremely good value. New developments

are being snapped up and there are

numerous subdivisions being worked

on throughout the area,” James says. “As

developments bring the city closer, the

stage is being set for ongoing growth in

popular lifestyle areas and new, familyfriendly

neighbourhoods.”

Support for lending

Interest rates have been reduced to

record lows and aren’t expected to rise for

years. Meanwhile, Loan to Value Ratio

(LVR) restrictions have been dropped

from 80 per cent to 70 per cent.

Mortgage payments are now often lower

than rents. This bodes well for investors.

For people who are ready to buy, the

Reserve Bank of New Zealand is ready to

help.

There is also an anticipated funding

boost in the pipeline as homeowners with

fixed interest rates see their terms expire

in the next couple of years and move to a

lower interest rate, freeing up a significant

chunk of money they can potentially

reinvest. As James indicated, this is one

factor that counts against waiting.

For anyone looking to buy or sell,

Harcourts Four Seasons has them

covered, he says.

“We’re part of a very large network,

including overseas contacts, and

being local means we know the area

exceptionally well.”

Harcourts Four Seasons is the largest

real estate firm in the Selwyn and

Waimakariri districts with more than 90

sales consultants across eight branches.

Harcourts has been named the

country’s most trusted real estate brand

by Reader’s Digest every year since the

award’s inception nearly eight years ago,

and has won the Quality Service Gold

Award for the past three years.

To get in touch, phone Harcourts

Four Seasons on 0800 789 1011 or visit

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

The rising popularity of lifestyle blocks:

Live the dream in Lincoln

Picture this: against a backdrop of the Southern

Alps, surrounded by the rural farmlands of Lincoln,

your architecturally designed dream home can

sit on solid, fertile land that’s perfect for leading a

self-sufficient life. Verdeco Park is a community-inwaiting,

ready for anyone who wants lifestyle block

without the commitment of 15-20 acres.

What’s the big deal?

It’s not just about living the dream. Families are

looking for space to custom-build their ideal lifestyle,

and many are doing it with help. Janelle Pritchard,

Marketing Manager for Verdeco Park, says: “There

are plenty of multi-generational homes going in. In

some cases, older parents are helping young families

to fund the build and then living in a second flat on

the property. They then have company as they grow

older. The bonus here, is that changes earmarked in

the Selwyn District Council plan mean these flats can

soon be rented out, creating a revenue stream for the

family.

85% of buyers in Verdeco Park are from the Selwyn

area, and are usually those who are onto their 3rd or

4th homes. There are also some overseas returnees,

and rural farmers who are looking to downsize but

aren’t prepared for a full city move.

What to look out for

Whether you’re using a home build company on

a smaller lifestyle section or using an architect and

private builder for your custom dream home, there

are things you still need to consider. Most important

are the services available to your boundary—power,

water, and waste. Lifestyle blocks typically have a

longer distance from house to boundary as well, so

you may need to budget for eco pumps to remove

your waste. In Verdeco Park, you’ll also get broadband

whereas other developments might only offer the

copper network. If you’re making the jump, you’ll

already have a good idea of what you want, just

make sure you check what’s already there and what

you still need. And be sure to keep adequate budget

for landscaping—there will likely be rules around

completion that you need to follow—and adhere to

fencing requirements. And if you’re just not sure how

to go about it all, using a building broker like My

Build Sorted will help.

So, if you’re considering a lifestyle change there’s

still limited land available in Verdeco Park, and

it’s worth checking out. Or you can call Rebecca

Duncan in the sales office on 021 711 813 for more

information.
