• By Matt Slaughter

ROLLESTON’S Vicky Van Der

Zwet is hooked on salmon fishing

after catching a big one over the

weekend.

Vicky has fished in the past

but this was her first attempt at

salmon fishing and the biggest

fish she has ever caught “by far,”

she said.

She reeled in the 8.10kg,

810mm salmon with the help of

her husband Nico Van Der Zwet,

an experienced fisherman, and

10-year-old grandson Jake.

Said Vicky: “This one took about

five minutes and my husband was

there to tell me what to do.

“It was quite tiring. Definitely,

it’s not easy because you’re not

fishing with a huge rod but it was

exciting.”

She caught the fish about 8pm

in the lagoon near the Rakaia

River mouth on Saturday and

Vicky also caught a small trout

earlier that day.

Thieves

benefit

from

slack

vehicle

security

• By Matt Slaughter

POLICE SAY residents continue

to be too casual when it comes to

locking their vehicles.

Senior Sergeant Dean Harker

said about 80 per cent of vehicles

which have had items stolen from

them in the district in the last few

months have been unlocked.

Harker said the number of

vehicles being targeted by thieves,

and stolen, has become more

noticeable. He estimates there

have been more than 30 thefts

recently.

He said this is happening all

across the district but some of

the areas being hit the most are

Rolleston, Lincoln and West

Melton.

Said Harker: “We had a

spate of them in Lincoln and we

had a spate in Rolleston. That’s

probably in the last couple of

months.

“If they [thieves] know that it’s

easy pickings in one area, they’ll

keep going back there.”

WE’RE A trusting lot, and

that is playing right into the

hands of the crims.

On page 1 today we

beat a familiar drum;

UNLOCKED vehicles

continue to be a target for

thieves.

The definition of a breakin

doesn’t apply here because

the vehicles aren’t broken

into; the thieves simply

open the door and help

themselves to whatever is

inside.

It is frustrating for

the police. They take the

complaint, go through the

paperwork and cop the

fallout when little comes of

it except the insurance

claim.

Selwyn might be one of

the most crime-free places

in New Zealand but that will

change as the population

grows, and crims from

further afield see us as easy

pickings.

Girl’s support cat goes missing

In Brief

NEWS 3

• By Matt Slaughter

A PEBBLETON family is

devastated after the mysterious

loss of their cat Milo – a support

animal for their daughter

Isabella who has a head injury.

And they’re worried foul

play may have been a factor.

Selwyn Times reported last

year a two-year-old cat lost its

eye after being shot by a rifle in

Prebbleton.

In January 2017, another

two-year-old cat was shot with

a .22 calibre bullet and his back

left leg was amputated. He was

shot again about a year later, this

time in his front left leg, and had

to be put down.

Jacqueline Long said since her

family moved to Guardsman

Pl two-and-a-half years ago,

three of their beloved cats,

Jasmine, D’arcy and Milo have

disappeared.

Milo was the most recent to

go missing on November 21 and

Isabella has been crying herself

to sleep ever since.

Milo helped calm Isabella.

Jacqueline said this played a

vital role in letting her brain

recover from a head injury

sustained after being hit by a

softball bat during school sport

in 2018.

“With brain injuries, your

brain is so busy trying to heal,

that you can’t moderate your

emotions.

“For her, [Isabella] it was

calming, it was hugely calming.

She’d sit down and Milo would

just cuddle her. It just calmed

her down and enabled her brain

to get on with healing rather

than processing emotions and

feelings and physical reactions to

stuff that she could not moderate,”

said Jacqueline.

She said Selwyn Times previous

coverage of Prebbleton cat

shootings makes her fear the

worst may have happened to

Milo, Jasmine and D’arcy.

“All we know is that in the

newspaper articles and the

chit-chat around is that there

have been cats that have made it

home or been found and they’ve

got gunshots in their bodies.

“We don’t know whether that

rumoured shooter is doing his

or her thing again, we don’t

know whether someone’s trapping

cats, we don’t know. There’s

just an absolute lack of bodies,”

MISSING: Isabella (left) and

Reuben Long’s beloved cats

Milo, Jasmine and D’arcy have

disappeared in two-and-a-half

years living in Prebbleton.

•If you have seen any of these

pets or had a cat go missing in

Prebbleton recently? Email matt.

slaughter@starmedia.kiwi

she said.

An SPCA spokeswoman said

it has received reports of

cats being shot in Prebbleton

in January 2017, December

2018 and June 2019, but none

since.

She said it is unclear if these

shootings were linked or if the

Long family’s cats may have

been shot.

“There are any number of

reasons why cats go missing,’’

the spokeswoman said.

COUNTDOWN APPEAL

Developers have until the

middle of this month to appeal

the decision to decline the

construction of a new Countdown

supermarket in Lincoln. Shane

Kennedy, who applied for resource

consent to build the supermarket

in the Flemington subdivision

on Birchs Rd, has not said yet

whether he will appeal. Fortyseven

supported the development,

23 submissions were in opposition

and two were neutral.

STUDENTS VISIT SITES

The Lincoln Rotary Club, in

conjunction with Lincoln High

School, held a building and

construction day last month. A

group of nine year 11 students

visited three construction

companies to gain an insight

into the building industry, which

they are interested in working in

after they finish school. The three

companies visited were Concision,

Rolleston, ZOG Steel Framing,

Wigram, and Metro Glass,

Hornby.

More toxic algae

• By Matt Slaughter

POTENTIALLY toxic algae

benthic cyanobacteria has been

found in the Selwyn River at

the Whitecliffs Domain and

Whitecliffs Rd section.

The Canterbury District

Health Board has issued a health

warning and says there are other

access points along the river that

may have benthic cyanobacteria

in them.

It comes after the same sort

of algae was found at the Glentunnel

section of the river two

weeks ago.

People are advised to

treat every low-flowing

river cautiously and check

for the presence of benthic

cyanobacteria.

Canterbury medical officer of

health Dr Cheryl Brunton said

the algae looks dark brown or

black and can produce toxins

harmful to people and animals.

“Exposure may cause skin

rashes, nausea, stomach cramps,

tingling and numbness around

the mouth and fingertips.

“If you experience any of

these symptoms, visit your

doctor immediately, also let

your doctor know if you’ve had

contact with dark brown/black

algal mats or water in this area,”

Brunton said.

As well as people, animals,

particularly dogs, are being

advised to avoid areas of the

river which contain the algae

until health warnings have been

lifted.

She said people and animals

should remain out of the waterways

until the warnings have

been lifted.

Pets that show signs of illness

after coming into contact with

algal mats should be taken to a

vet immediately.

The district council is following

agreed procedures and

monitoring its nearby drinking

water intakes.

Environment Canterbury is

monitoring the sites and the

public will be advised of any

changes in water quality.

‘There were probably

• From page 1

The items were most commonly

stolen from vehicles in

these thefts included

money, clothing,

sports bags, laptops

and remote controls

for garages.

However, he said

“anything of value” is

generally targeted by

thieves.

Thieves are striking

mostly in early hours

of the morning,

targeting cars parked on streets,

in driveways and in car parks.

• From page 1

Vicky said the fish will be sent

away to be smoked and she is

looking forward to eating and

sharing it with others.

“We love salmon. We get it

smoked into vaccum-packed

bags. We’re going to give some

away,” she said.

Dean Harker

“I went to one of the car

parks by the [Rolleston] police

station probably

two or three weeks

ago and there were

probably a dozen

cars that had their

windows down.

“A couple of those

There have been a few salmon

sighted in the lower Rakaia

A $360,000 pathway linking

Whitecliffs to Glentunnel in

an area which has previously

been deemed dangerous may

be completed sooner than first

planned.

A number of Whitecliffs

residents, led by contractor Neil

Walker, have spent the last 10

months helping to build about

500m of track on private land at

Breakneck Corner, about halfway

between the two towns.

The district council originally

planned to complete the 3.5km

track by 2031 as part of its Long

Term Plan.

Sue Wragg, who helped complete

the first section of track,

said the area where work has

been done was previously “very

dangerous” for parents using

wheelchairs and children on

bikes.

“We weren’t prepared to wait

until [2031], it’s as simple as that,

really.”

The district council has

indicated the track may now be

completed as soon as next year

because of the community’s efforts.

Said district council

infrastructure manager Andrew

Mazey: “The draft 2021-31

Long Term Plan is proposing

to recommend to council that

this cycleway should be funded

and undertaken in the 2021/22

financial year.

“The proactive efforts by the

community to address a particular

safety problem themselves by

providing this initial section has

prompted council to consider

bringing the remainder of the

original project forward so it can

be fully completed sooner rather

than later.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Residents help build pathway

OPEN: Mark Wragg cuts the ribbon to the first section of new a pathway between

Whitecliffs and Glentunnel, which the community helped to build. ​

“There are no records of

pedestrian or cyclist crashes in

this area, but the area where the

community has completed its

works and the improvements in

safety for pedestrians and cyclists

were key to enable full pathway

link between Glentunnel and

Whitecliffs to be successfully

completed.”

Wragg said building the first

section of track would not have

been possible without the support

of Walker, who built the section

of track, Sam Richards from

Richards Consulting Engineers

and Steve Murphy Ltd, who supported

the project.

The cost of completing the first

part of the track was $14,000 and

this was covered by donations

from two families. The cost of

the remainder of the track will be

covered by the district council.

New east

Rolleston

school named

Te Rohutu Whio

• By Matt Slaughter

TE ROHUTU Whio has been

chosen as the name of a new

school in east Rolleston.

The name was gifted by Te

Taumutu Rūnanga and means

“the whistling rohutu.”

A rohutu is a type of tree.

Traditionally, spinning tops

made of the rohutu tree were

used for entertainment at whare

tapere (places of entertainment).

The role of the whare tapere

was about learning and testing

new skills.

Said principal Kate Morgan:

“Our new name reflects this and

also the importance that knowledge

grows slowly and surely.

“The leaves of the rohutu tree

are heart-shaped and reflect

aroha which will be a huge focus

for our school.”

Te Rohutu Whio has received

$20 million in Government

funding.

It will be spent on its construction

and, once finished, it will

accommodate 400 pupils.

The school is scheduled to

open at the end of January 2022

and will be led by Morgan, who

is currently the deputy principal

at Merrin School.

SPEEDWAY RACING runs

in Glen Leech’s family’s blood,

so it is fitting he has mowed a

racetrack into the lawn at their

Darfield home.

The practice course on their

rural block gets plenty of use

from their children Rubie, 10,

and Harry, 6.

Rubie and Harry’s interest in

racing is not surprising, given

they are the third generation of

two speedway families.

The siblings are not competing

yet, but the backyard track

has proved the perfect training

ground to hone their skills behind

the wheel.

The racetrack is so well mown,

it won the John Deere Lawn

Legend competition.

Glen won a Z335E Residential

ZTrak Zero-Turn lawnmower

for his efforts.

Glen’s wife Kylie entered him

in the contest after seeing it on

Facebook.

She built her entry around

how much their family loves

their 0.6ha lawn and personal

racetrack.

Glen’s shock at winning

was soon replaced with his

excitement to replace his old

equipment which made building

and maintaining the backyard

speedway a tough task.

He mows the lawn and track

about once a week.

The rest of the back paddock

receives a monthly maintenance

trim which helps define the

course’s tight bends and long

straights.

“The mower we were using

had a catcher and we realised

it was not suited to our larger

property as the grass piles of

clippings were really stacking

THE ARTICLE The face behind

Backyard racetrack

earns Leech family new mower

up. We learned buying a mower

without a mulcher was a mistake,”

Glen said.

The family moved from a smaller

property in Darfield to their

bigger lifestyle block in March just

two weeks before New Zealand’s

Covid-19 lockdown.

“We felt very lucky to be here.

“The kids were outside all the

time, on their bikes, scooters,

playing on the lawn or out in the

back paddock racing around,”

Kylie said.

RACE-READY: Glen and Kylie Leech,

with their children Rubie and Harry

and the new mower creating a

backyard speedway track.

The family’s previous lawn had

been impacted by earthquakes,

creating a rippled and rough

surface interspersed with holes,

which was not suitable for gokarts

or playing in general.

John Deere, tactical marketing

manager Fraser Scott congratulated

the Leech family on their

win.

“Glen’s love for his lawn

and dedication to mowing the

racetrack for his kids definitely

makes him a lawn legend.”

Since that time the district

council has had further engagement

with the Hororātā community

about the community centre,

of views on the future location

of the centre, a district council

Mullet fundraiser

for men’s health

• By Matt Slaughter

LINCOLN HIGH School

took part in a different

kind of Movember to

support men’s health.

Moustaches weren’t an

option for many of the

school’s students but they

still wanted to help the

cause, creating Mulletvember.

Said student Reuben

Ryan, who took part: “I’ve

put a year of hard work

and growth into the filthy

mullet and now it’s got a

good cause and purpose to

go towards.

“Men’s mental health

is a big thing and people

need to be more aware and

to help and support those

blokes who are in need of

it and what better way to

do it than a classic mullet

removal.’’

Said fellow student Sam

Draper: “I like mullets and

I thought it was a good way

to raise money for a good

cause.’’

Barber Ben Scott from

Benny’s Barber Shop volunteered

his time to go to

the school on October 30

to cut some of the boy’s

hair into mullets.

Said deputy principal

Kylie Horgan: “This was a

great show for the rest of

the school and really got

the month off to a good

start, creating a buzz about

the mullets in the school.”

Throughout the month

the boys were hard at work

showing off their mullets

and collecting donations to

try and reach their goal of

raising $5000, she said.

Canterbury Sports

Wholesale printed and sent

out the Mulletvember T-

shirts. These helped spread

the word and gain extra

support.

Movember raises money

for prostate, and testicular

cancer, and more than

1250 other men-related

health issues worldwide.

HALF A WORLD away in

England, Barbara Hind is

on the search for more

information about her

grandmother Annie Spring,

who lived in Weedons.

Hind is 74 and has never been

to New Zealand but wants to

know more about the 30 years

Annie spent here, including 13

in Weedons.

Annie moved to New Zealand

from Maryport, Cumberland,

England, some time between

1921 and 1928.

She married John Spring some

time after arriving.

The couple lived in Weedons

from about 1946 until John’s

death in 1957. Annie moved

back to England in 1959.

They had previously lived

on Ferry Rd, Woolston, in

Timaru and other parts of

Canterbury.

Said Hind: “She obviously met

John Spring sometime before

1928 as the records for that year

show them living together at 8

Ferry Rd, Canterbury. By 1935

they were shown as married,

but I have not been able to find

a record.

“The records always show

John as a labourer, although

in 1946 when they were living

in Weedons he is shown as a

farmer.

“Annie was always shown as

a housewife. They lived there

[Weedons] until John’s death,

aged 70, in 1957. I have not

been able to find a record of any

children.”

After Annie died in 1961, her

From the battered red zone to Rolleston

Craig and Kelly Pierce

MOVING INTO their first home

in Avondale together, Craig and

Kelly Pierce never thought they

would leave it.

Then the February 22, 2011,

earthquake hit.

After the quake, their house

was red-zoned and they were

forced to leave. The couple had

to make a quick decision about

where they were going to move.

“I think the worse thing was

not knowing where we were going.”

Kelly said.

“You went to bed each night

thinking, where am I going to be

living in the next six months?”

Craig said.

Craig and Kelly began looking

for a house in town but with no

luck. They decided to look at the

option of building and Kelly’s

brother, who had done some

plumbing in Rolleston, suggested

they look there. They found

a section they liked early the

following year and moved in 10

months later.

Before buying the land, Craig

had never been out to Rolleston

and says they would not have

built a house either.

“We quite like older houses, we

weren’t specifically looking for a

new house.”

But seven years later, Craig,

Kelly and their nine-year old

daughter Vienna enjoy living in

Rolleston. They feel very fortunate

to have privacy, peace and

quiet, yet be close to Vienna’s

school, shops and a park to walk

the dog.

“You look out and you don’t

feel like you’re in the city,” Craig

said.

Being away from Christchurch

made it easier to forget about the

earthquake and there was wellneeded

peace and quiet from it.

Before moving to Rolleston,

Avondale was like a ghost town

with residents leaving their

houses behind. Being one of the

last families to leave the area, the

couple recall walking around

feeling vulnerable.

“It was horrible when you were

living there and you were walking

the dog around the block

and you’d see broken windows

and empty houses and it became

quite eerie.”

Now when Kelly and Craig

walk the dog in Rolleston, they

have a sense of safety.

Craig and Kelly were not

alone in moving out to Selwyn,

after the earthquake the district

grew in population by 47 per

cent led by people moving from

Christchurch.

The family likes to participate

in park runs at Foster Park on

Saturdays, camp out at Glentunnel

and drive out to Darfield for

the forest walks and the bakery.

Kelly volunteers for Bellyful

Selwyn, delivering meals around

Selwyn to new mothers and families

with unwell children, while

Craig has fun biking around the

district.

Craig admits the earthquake is

the reason his family moved, but

they would not be rushing back

into town now, except for a beach

trip or to his favourite record

store, Penny Lane.

Celebrate

summer and Selwyn

Hit the court with the Canterbury Rams, bike the trails, crack the secret code or take a picnic in

the park – Selwyn District Council’s Summer in Selwyn events programme is back for another

jam-packed summer.

The Summer in Selwyn guide — delivered to Selwyn homes over the weekend (rural delivery

arriving this week) — provides information on more than 80 activity and event options organised

by the Council and available around the district until the end of March.

This year the Canterbury Rams will be joining in the popular Basketball Jams in March. The

Council has also included the new Selwyn Bike Trail Challenge where people can enjoy Selwyn’s

great bike trails and take on the challenge to crack the secret code to win a prize, Council’s

Community Services and Facilities Group Manager, Denise Kidd says.

“We’ve brought back and refreshed a great range of favourite activities for people to enjoy from

craft and technology experiences to music and outdoor fun. But we’re also pleased to have added

a few really cool new events to encourage people to explore and enjoy, from their own backyard

with the Selwyn Garden Series to further afield with the bike trail challenge.

“After a tough year we’ve been working hard on ways to celebrate both summer and Selwyn and

we think this guide will help people to do just that.”

Council events include three outdoor movies and a drive-in movie starting with a sprinkling of

Christmas magic with Arthur Christmas at Anderson Square in Leeston on Friday 4 December.

The popular Teddy Bears’ Picnic is back, along with Pool Parties in Sheffield, Darfield and

Southbridge and a special Pool of Rock party at Selwyn Aquatic Centre.

The Selwyn Libraries team has lots in store for Selwyn this summer, from sending people on

virtual travels with their Summer Reading Challenge “read around the world”, to resourceful

Rekindle workshops that convert cabbage leaves and felt wool into practical products.

‘Contamination crew’ to support recycling

A team of four is hitting the streets from this week to support Selwyn residents to recycle right.

Since the Level 4 lockdown the Council has seen an increase in the number of loads of recycling that

could not be recycled and were sent to landfill because of contamination. Seven percent of loads

(31,380 kg) had to be sent to landfill in the last month alone.

The contamination crew will be helping by providing guidance on how to improve recycling.

Council Solid Waste Manager Andrew Boyd says over the past six months the Council has provided

updated bin stickers and magnetic easy recycling guides to residents, and run newspaper and social

media advertising to support good recycling. The contamination crew is the next step to help people.

The team will be checking the contents of recycling bins and providing information to householders

where they have put the wrong items in.

“We know that Selwyn people care about their recycling, and that it can be confusing,” he says. “By

having the crew on the street, they’ll be able to provide specific information to households about items

they may have mistakenly thought were okay to recycle.”

Where there is a small amount of contamination, the bin will still be collected, but the crew will leave

an information tag on the bin handle letting people know about items in their bin that could not be

recycled. If there is a large amount of contamination then the bin won’t be collected that week and

people will be advised about the contamination.

“This is so we can avoid contaminating the rest of the recycling load,

and having to send it to landfill,” Mr Boyd says.

In extreme cases — where people consistently put out large quantities

of items that can’t be recycled — the Council may consider removing

bins from households, but Mr Boyd says the focus will be on helping

people first.

“We’re dedicated to looking after Selwyn by doing our best with

rubbish and recycling. We’re not out here to tell people off, we want to

help people to recycle right, and providing advice directly should help

to clean up the recycling”.

Nice

work!

Thanks for getting

recycling right.

Last chance to have your say on

district rules

There’s two weeks left to have your say on the Proposed Selwyn

District Plan.

The Proposed Plan is basically a ‘rule book’ for what you can or

can’t do in the district and what may require a resource consent

from the Council.

The plan takes account of the rapid and continuing growth we’ve seen

in Selwyn in the last decade and sets rules and policies for where that

growth should occur. It aims to help ensure the district continues to

grow in a way that meets your needs and those of people moving to

join in the great lifestyle and opportunities Selwyn offers.

The Proposed Plan provides a framework for growth and unlocks the

economic potential of our district in a sustainable way over the next 10

to 15 years. It provides direction for how townships should grow, and

where and what kind of businesses and industries are encouraged.

It also simplifies the zones that help guide what you can and can’t

build, maps the risk from natural hazards such as flooding and

liquefaction, identifies our heritage sites, buildings and trees and

proposes rules to protect our landscape and night sky, Council

Environmental and Regulatory Services Planning Manager Ben

Rhodes says.

“These are key decisions about where we’re going and what life will

look like in the district, so we really want to hear from you.”

“So far we’ve seen a lot of interest in our drop-in sessions and

community events, with hundreds of you talking to our planners

and asking questions, and we’ve also received 35 submissions.

Key areas of interest to date include queries about rezoning or

subdividing land, designations, flooding hazard and family flats.”

You can find out more and make a submission on the plan until 5pm

Friday 11 December at selwyn.govt.nz/districtplanreview.

Drinking? Don’t Drive

The Selwyn road safety team is launching its annual anti-drinkdriving

campaign. Alcohol is the second biggest contributing factor

to road crashes in New Zealand.

This years ‘That’s a Fail’ campaign is reminding people of the risks

that drink-driving brings. Everyone’s perception of how much they

can drink is different, however the law is precise. If you’re over

20 years of age the legal blood alcohol limit for driving is no more

than 50 milligrams of alcohol for every 100 mls of blood. There is a

zero alcohol limit if you are under 20. That means if you drive after

consuming even one drink, you can be charged with drink-driving.

Summer, and particularly Christmas, is a time when people enjoy

catching up with friends and attending functions, but a drink-driving

conviction or causing a crash has lifelong consequences, Road

Safety Education Coordinator Jessica Fairbrass says. “The summer

months are a time to enjoy and celebrate. We’re reminding people

to plan ahead before drinking. If you’re planning on drinking, plan

not to drive.”

Town centre anchor building gets roof

The anchor project for the new Rolleston town centre has passed its latest milestone with the roof going

on and work moving indoors.

The roof has been installed on Te Ara Ātea, the new library and anchor building for the Rolleston town

centre, as the building prepares to be the first open in the new town centre.

Work has begun on fitting the building’s windows and sliding doors, including the large second floor

windows that will provide views across Rolleston and out to the Southern Alps, along with the internal walls.

The 2,200 square metre, two-storey building is due to be finished in late 2021. It will house the new

Rolleston Library, along with community spaces, exhibition areas, a workshop room, tamariki area and

Waka Huia, a quiet room with a museum-quality display wall on the outside and displays of taonga from

Te Taumutu Rūnanga.

Te Ara Ātea will open onto the town square

for the new Rolleston town centre. The town

centre will feature retail areas, a sensory

space, kai gardens and a youth area.

A hearing on the design of the town centre

has been completed this week. The project

team was pleased to receive a significant

number of submissions from interested

community members on the design of the

town centre. These will be incorporated into

the final design which is expected to be

completed early March next year.

Aussie move for trainer Nathan Purdon

• By Michael Guerin

YOUNG GUN trainer Nathan

Purdon says he is looking

forward to branching out on his

own in what could ultimately be

a multi-state Australian career.

The 25-year-old will leave

his successful partnership with

Chrissie Dalgety at West Melton

in late January to return to Australia,

where he has tasted group

one success before when training

a very small team.

But this time Purdon will be

looking to establish himself

rather than only have that small

team or work for others.

“I think the time is right and

after discussing it with a few

people, including dad (Mark) I

think Victoria is the right place

to base myself,” Purdon said.

“I have really appreciated the

opportunities here with Chrissie

and with Cran advising but

things are changing with dad

and Natalie taking a step back

in the business and that could

present some opportunities in

Australia.

“Dad has suggested to me he

would be happy to come across

to the sales in Australia, where

he is going to be campaigning

horses in Sydney anyway, and we

can look at horses together.

“He will see if any of his

owners are interested in buying

horses at those sales and leaving

them in Australia for me to train

but I am also going to reach out

to some of my owners.

“But I am going over there

with a clean slate so I am going

to build the team up from

scratch and that will mean I am

available to buy and train horses

for Australian owners too.”

Purdon could be moving at

horses to Craig Cross and Luke

McCarthy.

But a trainer like the younger

Purdon could easily become

a go-to man for New Zealand

owners wanting to campaign

in Australia, especially as many

Kiwis like their horses to go to a

fellow countrymen.

One of those options has been

Anthony Butt, who has just

moved back from New South

Wales to Victoria, and while he

takes outside horses much of his

training is quite rightly based

around Emilio and Mary Rosati’s

horses as his major owners.

But Nathan would have the advantage

of arriving without the

commitments of a large stable

so could be able to tailor raids

to New South Wales or even

Queensland.

“I am really open to that sort

of thing and I might even spend

a few week helping out with

dad’s horses when they campaign

in Sydney.

“But it is an exciting time.”

Purdon will of course miss many

of the stars he has helped train

with the Dalgetys but warns the

best is yet to come from exceptional

three-year-old Krug.

“He came to the end of it in

the Sires’ Stakes at Addington

and probably even before,” he

admits.

“But he is in the paddock now

and will miss the Sales Series

in Auckland and I am certain

this break will be the making of

him.”

Purdon’s partner junior driver

Mikayla Lewis will also join him

in Australia and work alongside

him as well as run the business

side of the operation.

Darfield’s Jesse Frew scored 73 runs in his team’s win over previous frontrunners

Weedons which allowed Leeston-Southbridge to jump to the top of

the table.

Win puts Leeston-Southbridge at top of table

LEESTON-Southbridge jumped

to the top of the country cricket

standings with a comprehensive

eight-wicket demolition of

Ohoka on Saturday.

The combined side’s victory

sees them leapfrog Weedons –

who suffered a hefty 79-run loss

to Darfield – and lead the CRV

Ambreed country premier one

day 2020/21 competition.

At Leeston Park, the home side

chose to bowl first and immediately

rolled through Ohoka’s top

order.

Sam Chamberlain and Tom

Burt did the damage at the

top, hitting good areas and

grabbing four wickets between

them – Burt bowling a close

to unplayable delivery to

remove the dangerous Will

Hamilton.

But it was a total team bowling

and fielding effort – creating two

run outs – to dismiss an Ohoka

side missing a few key players to

injury for a paltry 93 in 35 overs.

Only Harry Fitzpatrick offered

any resistance and was left

stranded on 40 not out off 86

balls.

After losing Rupert Young for

a duck in the first over after a

peach from Austin Hamilton,

Leeston-Southbridge knocked

off the win inside 15 overs, with

Canterbury Country star Harry

Chamberlain smashing 45 off 31

balls, and Country development

Liam Foulkes scored 26 before being clean-bowled.

Weedons’ reply stuttered to

17/2, with all-rounder Frew

again in the action to remove the

openers, and the run chase never

recovered.

James Richards again showed

his class, top-scoring with an unbeaten

59, but aside from keeperbatsman

James Watson (26), he

got little help and they were all

out for 143 in the 39 th over.

Crisis-hit Southbrook – winless

since the opening round

back on October 3 – defaulted

against fellow strugglers Lincoln

the bye.

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

Boom-town growth tests farm priorities

High-class soils must be protected,

Federated Farmers says as Selwyn’s urban

growth continues to surge.

Land around Rolleston continues to be

sold for housing and industry, expanding

the town at breakneck speed. The town

had 17,500 residents as of the last census

and the number is predicted to climb to

24,000 by 2040.

Selwyn district has

consistently been one

of the fastest-growing

areas in New Zealand

over the past decade

and is now the third

most populated

district in the South

Island.

Selwyn district has consistently been

one of the fastest-growing areas in New

Zealand over the past decade and is

now the third most populated district

in the South Island. The district’s strong

population and economic growth is

projected to continue for many years yet.

Meantime Selwyn District Council

(SDC) is consulting on its district plan,

which it expects to be in full effect by the

end of 2022.

In a summary of its proposed plan, SDC

says: “Apart from some minor rezoning

in Leeston and Rolleston, the council

has made the decision not to investigate

rezoning new ‘greenfield’ residential or

business areas in the district through the

District Plan Review process”.

In relation to the Ellesmere and Malvern

Wards, SDC’s decision was based

around “balancing projected demand

for residential and business land and the

existing capacity of townships to cater for

this demand”.

Overall, the council was not proposing

any residential zoning changes, “except

for lifting the deferral of some land in

Darfield and Leeston, which is currently

treated as rural land but is to become

residential zoned land in the Proposed

District Plan”.

SDC considered there was enough land

at the moment to cater for projected

population growth.

The pros and cons of urban plans and

policy statements continue to divide

farmers, who may, or may not, want

residential growth to continue. For some,

urban expansion is a threat to precious

hectares. For others, city and town sprawl

represents a potential property windfall.

In a submission to the urban

development NPS, Federated Farmers

said its membership encompassed a

broad range of persons and interests,

“depending on their own personal views

and future intentions to develop their

own land”. With this in mind, Federated

Farmers submission focused “solely on

key issues that are generally accepted by

our membership”.

The lobby group said Federated

Farmers generally supported the urban

development policy statement but wanted

urban development to be clearly defined.

It could not include un-serviced large lot

residential subdivision on the fringe of a

city or town that resulted in inefficient use

of the land resource and land use conflict.

An urban development NPS must also

recognize the importance of maintaining

high class soils for primary production for

future generations and protecting “high

class soils from inappropriate subdivision,

use and development”.

“A further concern our members face is

the expansion of the peri-urban boundary

into land used for primary production and

commercial activities associated with the

primary sector. Reverse sensitivity issues

such as odour, aural or visual amenity

concerns have the potential to affect the

viability of some rural-based businesses.

We seek greater controls be applied to

the NPS-UD [urban development] with

respect to controlling reverse sensitivity

risk. It is Federated Farmers’ experience

that reverse sensitivity issues inevitably

arise when urban uses of land displace

rural uses of that same land,” Federated

Farmers’ submission said.

Farmer-led group nets environment cash

A Selwyn catchment group is set to net just

over $2m for environmental improvements

on more than 60 properties in the district.

The government funding is going to

the Tinaku Project, led by the farmerled

Ellesmere Sustainable Agriculture

Incorporated. The group has 100 members

and aims to improve water health, mahinga

kai and cultural values.

The $2.2m from the Ministry for Primary

Industries (MPI) will pay for four and eight

full-time equivalent staff working with

landowners across 46,000ha. The activity

will include fencing and planting to protect

streams, drains and wetlands, as well as pest

control and improved biodiversity.

The Tinaku Project reaped about a third

of the Jobs for Nature funding announced

by Agriculture Minister Damien O’Connor

this month. Four farmer-led catchment

groups in Canterbury and Otago were given

between $176,000 and $2.3 million over

the next three years to fund environmental

improvement work across dozens of sites in

their regions.

The Jobs for Nature projects include,

North Otago Sustainable Land Management

Riparian Project – $362,000; Lindis River

project, Otago – $772,000 and Pomahaka

Wetland Restoration project, South Otago –

$176,000

O’Connor said most of the initiatives were

being led by established catchment groups

with hundreds of farmer members. The

work would involve fencing and planting

around water bodies, clearing of unsuitable

trees, and pest control.

Overall, Jobs for Nature could employ

between 15 and 20 people as well as

specialist contractors over that period.

O’Connor said producing food and fibre

for the world with strong environmental

credentials would create more value for our

products and would help New Zealand’s

economic recovery from Covid-19.

It was important that the Jobs for Nature

projects were led by farmers and the

community, O’Connor said.

“Farmers working directly with each other

through local catchment groups means

they can develop and share their knowledge

about what works for them and provide a

connected network for support and advice.

Through Jobs for Nature projects they can

start to make a difference that will be seen

in years to come.”

Canterbury Employers’ Chamber of

Commerce Chief Executive Leeann Watson

says the Jobs for Nature funding for

Canterbury and elsewhere was recognition

of the significant work undertaken by the

rural sector. Most farmers were focused

on improving and protecting their land

for future generations and many had been

early adopters of environment management

plans for the last seven or eight years, she

said. “Environmental stewardship is also

an important area in terms of securing

market access for food and fibre, so this

funding will play a role in helping to boost

our agriculture exports - a key economic

driver for the region, which was particularly

evident through Covid”.

The funding also showed that

sustainability had not been overlooked in

the Covid environment.

Preserving the health of rivers, wetlands,

and habitat biodiversity has always

been a key issue for the region, “so we

are encouraged to see the Government

addressing this challenging issue in

partnership with the farming sector and

hope that it is a signal for the Government’s

approach to accompanying sector

regulations and other sustainability issues,”

Watson said.

A further $2.9m of government funding

would help about 300 Hurunui farmers

work towards improving the health of their

land and water through applying farm

environment planning and sustainable land

management practices.

GARDENING

SOME OF the easiest plants to

grow are herbs and flowers.

Getting to know these

garden staples is also a great

way to learn about the basics of

gardening.

Step 1: Mint

To grow it well and noninvasively,

always plant mint in a

big pot in quality media (potting

mix) with a few water crystals to

help keep the plant moist (not

waterlogged) and make sure

it gets a little shade during the

hottest part of the day.

Step 2: Which herbs go

with mint?

Plant parsley and coriander in

the same pot as mint, because

these herbs love moist soil too.

Make sure you give each plant

plenty of room to expand as they

grow.

Step 3: Which herbs like

drier soil?

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Herbs and flowers are the easiest to grow

AS WE move through

summer, keep the garden

looking fresh for your outdoor

enjoyment.

1. Conserve water

– While we may not reach

Australian levels of urgency

about water shortages, the ecomessages

are just going to get

tougher from now on. Take a

good look at how you use water

in your garden and make some

plans. Whatever your method,

Thyme (common, pizza,

lemon), rosemary and

fragrant oregano, prefer being

more dry than moist and love

soaking in all day sun. They

prefer less nitrogen so they can

be sparing with the frequency

of watering: established plants

need only 30min of water once

or twice a week, vegetables

more.

2. Mulch to save

work – Mulch is the instant

makeover. It suppresses weeds,

makes a tired garden look

fresh and slows water

evaporation.

But only apply it once the soil

is good and wet, as otherwise it

develop their fragrant oils.

Step 4: Basil the loner

Basil (common, purple, thai,

giant, tiny leafed) needs a little

more care to produce a good

harvest. Grow it in a big pot that

can be moved around to catch

the sunshine and remove it from

windy conditions. Do not water

basil plants directly on the leaves

or the soil as the dampness may

attract fungal disease.

Step 5: Add coriander

It’s easy as long as you plant

the seeds just below the surface

and right where you want them

to grow in your garden. To slow

down the ‘bolting’ of coriander

harvest it often.

will not help your plants.

3. Plant locally – Native

plants (from your part of the

country) are perfectly adapted

to your local sun, rain and wind

conditions, so they look after

themselves.

4. Mow lightly – In the

summer lawns do best when

the grass is longer (about 25-

30mm).

The soil and roots are shaded

Step 6: Easy flower

growing

To start an easy

Christmas flower garden,

cultivate a small space or

garden edge and turn some

heat-treated sheep pellets into

the soil.

Then grab a mix of marigold

and cornflower seeds and throw

them across the garden. Place

a thin layer of soil on top and

water them in.

Step 7: Buy seedlings

Now buy some flower

seedlings of your choice and

place them at regular (or

irregular) spaces throughout the

growing space. Make sure you

water the garden daily.

Keep your garden fresh during warm weather

MOIST: Use water sparingly to

avoid shortages.

TASTE: Mint can be grown in the garden or in a container.

so the lawn does not get sunburnt

and more moisture is retained.

If you can, leave clippings on

the lawn to help conserve soil

moisture and feed it.

5. Add water – There is

nothing like water to enhance

a garden.

While a full-scale water

feature can get expensive,

garden centres now sell small

plug-and-go bubbling water

bowls.

GARDENING 35

Put a plan in place for holiday season

SUMMER IS here. It’s a hugely

busy time in the garden with

vigorous growth on most plants,

harvesting of early maturing

summer vegetables and preparing

the garden if you are planning on

heading away.

Vege garden

Summer salad vegetables will

be maturing mid/late December.

Regularly apply side dressings of

fertiliser to enhance the growth of

these plants. With quick maturing

crops such as radishes, dwarf

beans and lettuce, use succession

planting (every two to three

weeks) to avoid them all maturing

at the same time and ensuring

you have a constant supply.

Plan you watering or irrigation

programme to encourage strong

plant growth while avoiding

wasting any water. Apply mulch

to reduce water loss and help prevent

weed growth. Early planted

potatoes should be ready to be

harvested for Christmas Day.

Continue to remove the lateral

growth on your tomato plants

until they reach around 1m, and

tie up to stakes at regular points

(every 100–150mm).

Summer flowers

With little effort, summer

annuals can provide masses of

colour and beauty in the garden

MAINTENANCE: December is a good time to deadhead

your roses and encourage more blooms.

or containers. Summer flowers

include; ageratum, cornflower,

cosmos, marigolds, petunias,

portulacas, salvias, strawflowers

and zinnias. Deadhead old finished

flowers to encourage more

flowering.

Fruit trees

Early stone fruit such as plums

start to ripen towards the end

of the month. You may need to

remove some excess new growth

and thin laden bunches of

fruit to help promote heavy cropping.

Water newly planted fruit

trees and mulch as soils begin to

dry.

Berries and strawberries

Boysenberries, blackcurrants,

gooseberries and raspberries can

be harvested in late December.

They will be developing new

canes that should be tied down

or removed when there is

excessive growth.

It’s a great month for harvesting

strawberries. Protect plants with

bird netting so they don’t eat the

fruit before you do.

Place pea straw or crushed bark

around plants so fruit are sitting

on a ‘clean bed’. Water as required

and with the minimum of maintenance

you should be harvesting

delicious, juicy strawberries well

into January.

Roses

It’s an excellent month for rose

before the difficult months of

January and February. It’s important

to continue to deadhead

finished flowers to encourage

more blooms.

Apply regular side dressings of

rose fertiliser to encourage strong

healthy growth. Carry out summer

pruning to promote further

flowering. Inspect your roses

regularly for signs of blackspot

and rust and instigate a regular

spraying programme to control

these diseases.

Lawns

Depending on specific summer

weather conditions, lawns

should either be in peak condition

or beginning to dry out.

Avoid mowing too low over hot

summer months and do not apply

fertiliser.

If water supply allows, irrigate

lawns in the cooler parts of the

day. If you have bare patches

appearing, you will need to be

patient and wait until autumn before

carrying out any repair work.

Preparing the garden for

summer holidays

Because we traditionally

holiday in the Christmas/January

period, “deserting” the garden at

this time can lead to problems.

It’s better to plan ahead and be

prepared.

Avoid problems by not having

your vegetable crops maturing

during this time, applying a good

layer of mulch and installing a

timer or asking a neighbour to

water your garden while you are

away.

This is especially important

with plants in containers.

Fun and exercise

BMW X6 challenges design rules

CAR MAKERS are always

looking for a point of difference

in their designs.

A good example of that is

BMW’s X6 sport utility vehicle.

Well such is its style it doesn’t really

fit the SUV mould, its coupetype

rear quarter tapers markedly

to provide a fast-back look, one

which is distinctive and eyecatching.

If you add in genuine

bulk – the X6 is big – then you

have a bold, brash SUV that has a

polarising style.

Most of the people who I talked

about it liked it, but then there

were others who said it was a bit

over the top and unnecessarily

complicated as a design, especially

up front where an angular,

illuminated grille commands

attention.

The X6 has always been

controversial, when it was first

launched it had only four seats

which seemed a bit of a waste in

such a big car. However, BMW

has addressed that, it has been a

five-seater for several years now.

The X6 lands here with three

engine options; well, two are pretty

much the same design, a 3-litre

six-cylinder diesel with two different

power outputs, but for those

who like to stick with a high-performance

petrol engine, the M50i

is V8-powered. All have BMW’s

xDrive four-wheel-drive system.

The two diesels have nomenclatures

of 30d and 50d respectively.

This evaluation surrounds the

entry-level model which lists at

$149,400, the 50d and M50i are

both priced at $187,100.

Given its stature, the X6 has a

plush, spacious interior, and for

those onboard you are cocooned

in the lap of luxury, and there is

an abundance of trim details that

will provide a pleasurable travelling

experience for all occupants.

The driver also gets a wealth of

functions and controls, many of

which are voice activated while,

of course, the X6 has the benefit

of a multitude of safety systems

incorporated into the vehicle.

Up front sits the big diesel, it

has massive power outputs even

in what is considered low-power

form. BMW claims 195kW and

620Nm, if that is not enough

grunt for you the 50d adds 99kW

and 140Nm. For me, though, the

30d has enough to satisfy. Power

is sufficient enough to claim a

6.5sec time to reach 100km/h.

That’s not bad for a tubby vehicle

which weighs just over twotonne.

The engine is strong and wilful,

it is grunty under load and in a

subdued way it lets you know it is

enjoying its work. It throbs away

and is free-revving in its nature,

hauling to the 5000rpm redline

willingly, and that is unusual for

a big diesel. Not that there is any

real need to explore high revolutions,

diesels of this type have

mammoth mid-range torque, and

for that matter, the X6 is an absolute

dynamo during a highway

overtake. Such is the acceleration

BMW X6 30d: Sports sedan feel with notable power/handling balance.

you need to keep a close watch on

the speedometer, the X6 charges

to dizzy speeds with little effort

and little sensation of speed.

It also seems unfathomable

that you can have this huge

charge of energy from under the

bonnet and still achieve remarkable

fuel usage economy. BMW

also claims a 7.1-litre per 100km

combined cycle average. On my

long highway run the readout was

listing a 5.2l/100km instantaneous

figure at 100km, the engine

almost idling at just 1350rpm.

That contributed to an overall

9l/100km figure when I had finished

evaluating.

Overall, that’s perfectly acceptable,

and figures that will continually

surprise the X6 buyer, you

can have huge impetus without

needlessly scoffing fuel.

The engine drives to all four

corners through an eight-speed

automatic transmission. It is a

sequential shifting type with

paddles attached to the steering

wheel should the driver desire

to take control of the gearshift

process. Left to its own devices

the gearbox works the torque pattern

of the engine well, upshifting

early to minimise fuel usage.

Perhaps the biggest surprise

of all with the X6 is that of its

handling. I’ve mentioned it is a

big car and you’d expect there

to be limitations when twisty

backroads are encountered. That’s

far from the reality, the X6 belies

its bulk, it feels tightly connected

with the road and it is remarkably

agile. A lot of that can be attributed

to the massive 22in Continental

tyres which have amazing

sidewall flexibility along with

unyielding grip.

Steerage is informative and

the entire vehicle is balanced

over the suspension. Of course,

you are paying a premium price

for the X6 and you’d expect all

the ducks to be in row, but the

power/handling balance of the

X6 is something quite extraordinary,

it feels like a sports sedan,

it is something quite special

when the never ending mixture

of New Zealand’s road types are

presented.

The X6 is a complicated car to

describe. For one it is the quintessential

family wagon, it is also a

recreational model which would

be at home on the Mt Hutt skifield

access road, and it is a performance

SUV that is very wilful

with its high power outputs.

For my money the ‘baby’ of the

series would win out. As much

as I like big V8 petrol engines,

the 3-litre diesel charms with its

honesty and economy; however,

deciding between the 30d

and 50d is another conundrum

altogether.

From family cars to work trucks,

and supercars to fixer-uppers

no matter what you're looking for

you can find it all with Drivesouth.

What to ask a real estate agent

Selling a home is a big life decision, both

financially and emotionally. The journey

can be a roller coaster, which is why

finding a licensed real estate agent you feel

comfortable with is so important.

“Remember, you’re looking for the

person who you’re going to trust to sell

what’s likely to be your biggest asset. Their

success (or failure) will have a marked

impact on your new life plan,” says the

Real Estate Authority (REA).

New Zealand has about 15,000 real

estate agents who help people navigate

big-deal transactions every day.

“The trick is to find the one that will be

best for your situation,” he says.

If you’re going to get the best out of your

real estate agent – and they’re going to get

the best price and conditions for your

property – then you need

to put the work in before

you sign with anyone. That

means basing your decision

on more than gut feel or the

fact that their office was easy

to park outside.

You need someone who

understands what it takes

to sell a property like yours

and a proven track record to

show for it. You also need

to feel comfortable with

them personally – if

you don’t find them

pleasant to deal

with then buyers

may not enjoy

the experience either.

If you’re not sure how to get the ball

rolling, ask the agent the following

questions:

- What do you know about my

neighbourhood? How are sales in this area

and who is buying?

- Do you work independently or with

other agents?

- What kind of advertising or marketing

do you use – and which ones will work for

my property? What extra marketing costs

will I have to pay?

- What are your commission rates? Are

you open to negotiation?

- Do you have testimonials or references

from people whose properties you have

sold in the last three months?

- What do you recommend I do to

prepare my home for sale?

- Why should I hire you?

Asking these questions helps you

form a picture of the agent’s experience,

knowledge and how they structure their

business.

These days you’d expect an agent’s

marketing plan to have an online focus

that includes major property websites and

social media. Find out what the marketing

plan will cost and ask them to explain

their rationale – you’re the one paying for

this service, after all.

Remember that you can negotiate on

the marketing costs and commission –

don’t be afraid to ask the agents if they

are interested in an incentive-based

commission, where they will earn more

commission if they sell your property

above a certain price.

Once you’ve found the agent you think

you’d like to work with, check them out

on the Real Estate Authority’s (REA)

online public register, which will tell you

if the agent holds a current licence. This is

important because it’s illegal to carry out

real estate agency work without a licence

and if you deal with an unlicensed person

the REA will be unable to help you if

things go wrong.

When you’ve decided on an agent, the

terms and conditions of your contract will

be set out in an agency agreement that

you both sign. This is a legal document,

so make sure you get advice from a lawyer

and that you understand your rights and

responsibilities.

For independent information and

guidance on buying or selling property,

check out settled.govt.nz.

SELLING YOUR HOME?

Potential buyers are

likely to be living in your

neighbourhood, it’s an

area that they already love

and are actively seeking

to stay in. That’s why it

makes sense to advertise

your property in the

Selwyn Property Guide.

We are the only media

that reaches across the

entire Selwyn District.

Green Homes are building

better in Selwyn

Anyone can build a house. But if you’re looking for

a greener home build company that’s also affordable

for the average Kiwi, Green Homes Christchurch will

set you up with a warmer, drier, healthier and more

energy efficient home. And if a more sustainable

solution isn’t your main priority, the running cost

efficiencies are an added bonus that will put pennies

back in your pocket.

Higher spec that costs less

With five branches around NZ and expansion

plans in the near-future, high spec homes that cost

less to run are Green Homes’ speciality. They’re the

only residential design and build company in NZ

that is ISO compliant for Energy Management and

most branches have in-house design teams that

can customise almost anything. Plus, as a standard

specification you’ll get perimeter edge foundation,

extra wall and ceiling insulation, energy efficient

appliances, WELS rated tapware, and solar power

options that will contribute towards reducing your

carbon footprint.

Homestar and Lifemark options

for improved performance and

liveability

Homes can be expensive to run and a huge 80% of

floor heat can be lost through the perimeter of the

slab of your home. Green Homes build well above

[Edition datE]

2

code and have high insulation standards; their process

includes the perimeter edge of slab—which means it’ll

be warmer than most other new homes. So, you can

enjoy your home in comfort and not worry about how

you’ll pay to run it.

If you’re smart about home building, you can also

future proof your home for safety, potential mobility

impairments, or disability needs. Building in features

now—like wider doors and flush entrances, customheight

kitchens, non-slip tiles, easy-reach light

switches—will cost very little extra now but save you

thousands long term.

Acland Park show home opening

soon

The land prices and infrastructure of Selwyn are

boosting popularity of the area; the sheer space

is a big drawcard for building. And according

to testimonials, customers are loving the entire

experience when building with the Green Homes

team—the service, the team, their comfy new home—

and you can too, in as little as 16 weeks.

Their new show home in Acland Park, Rolleston

will open early in 2021; it’ll be highly rated for

Homestar and Lifemark certified so it’s

worth a peek. You can also reach the team on

0800 33 00 00 to talk through your home build

plans, or visit greenhomesnz.co.nz

Show homes

the ultimate way to shop around

Across the selwyn district, we are blessed with an

extensive array of very good quality show homes.

Building companies build show homes

to demonstrate their workmanship,

display innovative design ideas and

present a snapshot into a new and

luxurious lifestyle, featuring all the

latest in materials, fittings and fixtures.

A show home can inspire you in a way

nothing else can. You can absorb the

ambiance they present and admire the

innovative techniques, new materials

and technology.

You can ask questions, take notes

and compare. You can see at a glance

features you would love to emulate or

would avoid when building your home.

Best of all, you ;will see the building

companies’ attention to detail.

Show homes are the perfect way to get

a good idea of pricing, discover good

quality and value, learn about superior

use of space, future-proofing, ongoing

maintenance and long-term returns.

So what are you waiting for? Check

out our maps, grab a notepad and

pencil and begin the exciting project of

building your own home.

Confident at Auctions

Looking confident may be all you need to be the last

bidder standing when the hammer goes down.

Does your blood pressure go sky-high at

the sight of an auction room? Chances are

some of your fellow bidders are doing all

in their power to psych you out and win

the bidding.

Securing a property isn’t just about

having the most money. Sometimes the

winning bidder is the one with the most

confidence.

They use psychology to convince

opposing bidders to give up, hoping to

make everyone else think they’ve got more

to spend than anyone else in the room.

Too often buyers have preconceived

ideas about how the auction will unfold

and have their confidence knocked when it

doesn’t go their way.

Two can play at that game. You just need

to get your strategy right.

Looking confident may be all you need

to be the last bidder standing when the

hammer goes down.

To be that person you need to do some

preparation. Make sure you go to a few

auctions first to get used to them.

Come bidding day, park yourself on

the side at the front so that you can

see everyone in the room and, more

importantly, they can see you whether

they’re at the back of the front.

It gives you a vantage point and shows

the opposition you are bidding confidently

against them.

You are hoping that the other buyers

Show

home

Guide

have a plan in place.

Often that’s to start low. So if you come

in with a relatively high first bid, you may

rattle them.

“The lower the open bid the more people

can afford to bid. So you could knock out

some of the opposition before they even

place a bid if you choose the right opener.

Don’t start at $500,000 for a house you

know is going to go for at least $800,000.

Put an opening bid of $785,000.

Immediately your opposition is going to

think it will go incredibly high and might

be unnerved.

Call each bid out confidently. “It shows

you are comfortable and in control.

The more confident you seem the more

people will think you have done it before.

It’s a really good idea to vary your

bidding increments.. If it’s going up by

$2000 bids and it’s below your limit don’t

be afraid to put a $10,000 bid in..

Your competition is always thinking

about that next $2000 bid and if you

change the rhythm from $2000 to $10,000

you show you have the money and it

changes where their next bid has to be.

Instead of $4000 more it is $12,000 more.

Finally, if you’re a couple, make sure

you’ve discussed every aspect of the

auction before you get there. As soon

as you start looking at each other or

conferring, the opposition will think

you’re weak.
