Prebbleton on verge

of major growth spurt

Support and

opposition on

developments

• By Susan Sandys

PREBBLETON’S residential

area could increase by more

than 80 per cent if plan change

applications before the district

council are all approved.

A new Prebbleton plan

change application takes the

number of applications before

the district council to three,

amounting to about 1520 new

homes.

This would represent an

82 per cent increase on the

district council’s current estimate

of about 1850 dwellings in the

town.

Prebbleton’s potential huge

growth comes as nearly 300

submitters lodge their opposition

and support to the 2000-home

Lincoln South proposal and 2100-

home west Rolleston proposal on

Dunns Crossing Rd.

THE DISTRICT’S growth

continues like a runaway

train.

On page 1 today, we reveal

plan changes which could see

Prebbleton’s growth explode.

This is on the back of what

is happening in Rolleston

and the huge residential

development planned for

south Lincoln. If the plan

changes go through, just over

1500 more homes will be built

in the township, increasing its

size by 82 per cent.

There may be a time

when you won’t be able

to differentiate between

Prebbleton, Lincoln and

Rolleston.

A great read today on pages

12-13 about Selwyn Sounds,

how it got started and an

inside look at how it has

become an iconic music event

in Canterbury.

Amazing what can come

DARFIELD HIGH School

principal Andy England has

welcomed the end of the limited

statutory management period

for the school.

New systems introduced by

the school seem to be working

well, with a dramatic drop in

stand downs and suspensions.

Darfield High was put under

limited statutory management in

September 2019, after the ministry

identified concerns around

the board of trustee’s policies

and procedures with regard to

employment matters and communications.

Limited statutory manager

Gillian Simpson worked with

the school’s board of trustees

and leadership to address concerns

raised by the community.

England, who was appointed

in January, said the notice being

revoked this month showed that

the Ministry of Education now

had full confidence in the school

and its team.

“Interventions like LSMs

aren’t bad for schools. They can

be good, a bit like surgery when

it’s needed. But it’s always good

when they finish,” England said.

He said the community had

rightly pointed out some areas to

improve. The school had listened

and was working to ensure

Darfield High was “an amazing

school for our whole community.”

The school was improving

communication with its

community, developing its

curriculum to be more culturally

inclusive and fresher, and

introducing positive systems

within the school. These positive

systems included establishing a

new vision and values.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Darfield High School back on track

NEW CHAPTER: Darfield High School principal Andy England said the Ministry of

Education now has full confidence in the school and its team.

Stand downs and suspensions

have dropped dramatically.

There were 24 stand downs in

2019, 70 last year, and only five

so far this year.

There were seven suspensions

in 2019, 21 last year, and none so

far this year.

England said NCEA attainment

had been at continuously

good levels over the period, with

results comparing to the national

averages of other high

decile schools.

Board chairwoman Sue Robinson

said the board is close to

completing its new vision and a

set of school values, which would

inform a three-year strategic

plan.

“We’re at the start of a new

chapter and we’re confident

about the path ahead,” Robinson

said.

Students almost ready for spooky

• By Susan Sandys

LINCOLN HIGH School

students are preparing to stage

The Addams Family musical as

they learn all about theatrical

production in a timetabled

subject.

Seventy-seven students from

year 10 to 13 have developed

expertise in their chosen

strand of study as part of the

subject, whether it be in stage

performance or behind-thescenes

topics such as make-up,

set design, lighting and sound.

Director and drama teacher

Sandra McLean said it had

been “a massive journey” to get

to the lead-up to opening night,

which would be Wednesday next

week.

“I’m absolutely excited, I can’t

wait for a live audience to see

it. I think we have some really,

really strong leads this year, and

we have a very talented cast,”

McLean said.

It was the first time the

school’s biennial production

had been undertaken as part

of a timetabled subject. In

previous years it had been an

extra-curricular undertaking,

with rehearsals on Tuesday and

Thursday nights, and six to eight

hours on Sundays.

Students are still spending

their Sundays rehearsing, as

well devoting plenty of their

remaining out-of-school time to

preparing for the show.

McLean said the students had

embraced every aspect of the

musical black comedy, including

the challenging make-up and

costuming.

The deathly-pale skin colour

of the characters necessitated a

white cream-based make-up to be

applied to faces, arms and legs.

“Some of them have never

had to do stage makeup like this

before, this is next level,” she

said.

When it came to the

costuming for the ancestors, of

which there were 68 in the show,

cast members had raided their

wardrobes and visited op shops

quirky aspects, alongside it’s

themes.

THE DISTRICT council

has formally moved to slash

its number of community

committees.

At their fortnightly meeting

last week, councillors agreed to

a process over the next year, to

discharge 46 committees of their

legal responsibilities as committees

of the district council.

This will relieve them of the

legal responsibilities of being

part of the district council, while

allowing them to keep functioning

as independent community

groups if they wish.

Community services and

facilities group manager Denise

Kidd said most people agreed 70

committees was too many.

Being committees of council

had shackled some groups and

caused frustrations, including

the restrictions of health and

safety legislation and not being

able to submit to the district

council’s annual and long-term

plans.

“We have listened to those

frustrations and reflected on

the restrictions. We want to

free groups to advocate for and

work in their communities

without being hampered by

those requirements. Volunteer

community groups shouldn’t

have to wait for council request

or permission to do good things

with their community and for

their community,” Kidd said.

The district council would

work with the remaining 24

committees on their future role

and function. It was developing

a draft policy for consultation

with the committees and wider

community on the future of

committees.

“The council will also continue

to work with, and support,

the various volunteers, sports

clubs and user groups keen to

give back to their communities

in roles associated with reserves,

community pools and halls,”

Kidd said.

“Committees of council

have given great service and

worked extremely hard for their

communities over a long time,”

Kidd said.

Driftwood under scrutiny

A PIECE of carved timber

found amongst driftwood

on the beach at Rakaia

Huts may be a taonga

tūturu.

Southbridge resident

Andrew Sutton spotted the

item as he walked along the

beach with his wife

at Rakaia Huts on

the Saturday following

the Canterbury

floods.

At the bottom of

a pile of driftwood,

was a 70cm long item

which caught his eye.

“It was a lot darker

wood, you could see it

had been man made,” Sutton

said.

Picking it up, he saw

it had been carved, with

notches and a hole.

He took a photo and

posted in to the NZ

Archaeology page on Facebook,

where commenters

came up with many suggestions.

These included a

spiritually significant item

used by Māori chiefs, an

old tool for making nets

and a European wagon

levy.

He has since contacted

Manatū Taonga Ministry

for Culture and Heritage

and taken the item to the

Canterbury

Museum.

Head of collections

and

research Sarah

Murray said the

museum was

looking after the

object on behalf

of the ministry, as

per the Protected

Objects Act 1975.

“One of our curators

will co-ordinate efforts to

identify it, which will likely

involve consulting with

other experts. At this stage

we can’t say whether it’s of

cultural or archaeological

significance,” Murray said.

“If it’s not a taonga

tūturu (an object relating

to Māori culture, history

Andrew

Sutton

or society), we will ask the

finder to come and retrieve

it, as per our identification

and return procedure.”

Ministry deputy chief

executive delivery Neill

Atkinson said if the museum

assessment found the

object was a taonga tūturu,

the ministry would provide

for its care, recording, and

custody, and undertake a

process to determine its

true ownership.

One of the purposes of

the act was to reconnect

newly found taonga tūturu

with traditional owners,

which is usually iwi or

hapū in the area of the find,

Atkinson said.

“We are in contact

with Te Taumutu

Rūnanga about this as

we try to learn more

about it. We will continue

to work with them in

setting up a plan for its

care and conservation if

it is found to be taonga

LINCOLN AUTHOR Tania Roxborogh

is one of 28 finalists in the 2021 New

Zealand Book Awards for Children and

Young Adults.

Roxborogh’s book Charlie Tangaroa

and the Creature

from the Sea is

among titles

from five

finalists in the

Wright Family

Foundation

Esther Glen

Award for junior

fiction.

The Lincoln

High School

teacher is a

previous winner

of the award, for

My New Zealand

Story: Bastion Point, in 2017.

Roxborogh said she was “utterly

delighted” to have made the finals.

“I loved writing this novel so much. I

really got a sense that the main character,

Charlie, grabbed me by the scruff of the

neck and demanded that I write his story,”

she said.

Thirteen-year-old Charlie is a one-legged

boy from Tolaga Bay, Gisborne, who is the

only one able to stand up against a family

of warring Māori gods.

Convener of judges Alan Dingley said it

was clear that the finalists, selected from

a field of 166 entries, had credited their

young readers

with having

the emotional

intelligence to

deal with complex

themes, issues

and feelings.

“The diversity

of ideas in this

year’s entries

really stood out,”

Dingley said.

“Dystopian

futures,

ecological

battles and

immersive fantasy all take the reader into

new worlds.”

After Covid-19 made a virtual

presentation necessary in 2020, finalists

and publishers are looking forward to

a ceremony this year. The winners will

be announced on August 11 at Tiakiwai

Conference Centre at the National Library

in Wellington.

A few beers, talk of a rock concert

David Parlane has a

smash hit on his hands.

The former disc jockey

changed his tune to

promotions and after

a couple of quiet beers

with business partner

Craig Bradford, Selwyn

Sounds has developed

into a resounding

success. Chris Barclay

finds out how Lincoln’s

annual music festival

stays relevant with 80s

music

MUSICALLY, DAVID Parlane

got his big break between

midnight and dawn, spinning

discs for truckies, freight

train drivers, shift workers

and insomniacs tuned into

Palmerston North’s 2XS FM.

It was the perfect gig for the

now 56-year-old, an era when

80s music ruled the radio waves.

Almost four decades later, those

tunes still strike a chord for the

announcer-turned-promoter.

There can still be sleepless

nights too, thanks to a global

pandemic.

A prime mover behind Lincoln’s

annual Selwyn Sounds

day-long music festival, Parlane

pressed rewind over Queen’s

Birthday weekend when he returned

to Palmy for the station’s

40th anniversary celebrations.

The trip was a brief respite

from orchestrating one of the

province’s enduring concert

experiences.

“I started in radio in 1984 in

a little radio station,” Parlane

explained.

“In those days you had to put

a record on a turntable, cue it up

and put a weight on it. Then they

came up with this new thing

called a CD player.”

Parlane also took his career in

a different direction, switching

to sales and promotions at 2XS,

then Auckland-based 91FM, and

Kiwi FM in Hamilton.

“It’s been in the blood, promotions,

since way back then.

PRIME MOVER: David

Parlane’s love of 80s tunes

has spanned his career,

from the graveyard shift on

radio in Palmerston North,

to the hugely successful

Selwyn Sounds, pictured

here in 2020.

I always had that feel for events,”

he said.

Yet it was publican and now

business partner Craig Bradford

who sowed the seeds of the

town’s very own music festival

on two rugby fields at Lincoln

Domain.

Bradford pointed out that locals

had to head for Waipara Hills for

an outdoor concert experience,

when the rugby club’s headquarters

was in their own backyard.

Parlane assumed it was the

beers talking one night in 2016,

but Bradford continued to sound

him out and in March, 2017 the

festival debuted with Bradford

and the father-of-three watching

at close quarters backstage.

“Craig and I enjoy sitting there

for the last 15 minutes,” he said.

“It’s pretty surreal standing

there looking at who is on the

stage and then out to the crowd,

thinking ‘Wow, this is pretty

cool’.”

That sense of satisfaction after

the encore around 8.30pm always

vindicates the work the duo

put in to turn scribbles on a beer

mat into a blueprint for success.

“There were certainly significant

hurdles to overcome for the

first one, the resource consents,

the council process you have

to go through, especially when

something had never been done

before. Sourcing the talent was

easy,” Parlane said.

“When you’re working with

something that’s new and ‘Hey

we want to use two rugby fields,

put a whole lot of people on

the ground and put up a stage’

people go ‘Hang on, I don’t know

if we can do that. Where’s the

parking? Where’s the infrastructure?’”

However, the inaugural event

played out seamlessly, and the

resource consent was recently

extended to 2032.

Don’t expect the festival to be

remixed over that time frame.

Selwyn Sounds will continue to

sing from the same song sheet,

Covid-19 permitting.

“That 80s music has always

been a key part of how Selwyn

Sounds has grown to where it is,”

Parlane said.

“Our target market is a female,

35-plus who is going to buy a

ticket for her and her hubby, a

couple of mates … and they’re

going to enjoy a bloody good day

out, listen to music they grew up

with while having a few glasses

of wine or a few beers.”

The original line-up featured

Dragon, Mi-Sex, Sharon O’Neill

and the Jordan Luck Band.

“Then we moved it up a level

with Jimmy Barnes, Little River

Band, Leo Sayer, 10cc, Midge

Ure and Icehouse,” Parlane said.

He acknowledged they didn’t

quite sing from the same song

sheet this year, when Stan Walker

stepped in as the headline act

after Australia-based former

Noiseworks and INXS frontman

Jon Stevens - a star of the 2019

bill - was unable to cross the

Tasman due to Covid-19 restrictions.

“Stan’s music’s not from 80s or

90s but you think of the target -

females 35-65 and how he sings

. . . he’s a fantastic artist,” Parlane

said.

“It sort of deviated a little bit

but we still had Jordan Luck, The

Lady Killers, and Automatic 80s

are a crowd favourite.”

The 2022 ensemble has

reverted to type with Barnes,

Stevens and Stellar back again,

with first timers The Choirboys,

Greg Johnson, Ardijah and UKbased

Aucklander Rietta Austin,

a vocalist on BBC reality show

Strictly Come Dancing.

Parlane admitted there had

been one major change required,

as he grimaced while revisiting

the beverage distribution fiasco

of 2018.

“Year two was a huge learning

curve,” he said.

“If somebody had said to me

you’d be sitting here tomorrow

at this time and you’ll have nothing

in your containers or your

fridges I’d say ‘You’re bloody

joking. We’ve over-ordered from

last year, we’ve got 40-50 per cent

more (alcohol) than last year. No

way’. Well there was a way.

“We did six to eight runs to

bottle shops all around Canterbury.

Anything cold mate, put it

on the truck. We brought it back

and soon as it came off the truck

it was gone.”

Fortunately the festival

survived that sobering

experience, and two years later

Parlane and Bradford also

emerged unscathed from the

Covid-19 breakout.

and the rest is history

Parlane concedes he initially

downplayed the threat posed by

Covid-19.

“Our biggest thing was ‘Do we

have enough hand sanitiser for

the toilets?’ That’s all we were

thinking. Never in a million

years did we think we were going

to be locked down, and three

weeks later we were in lockdown,”

he said.

“They call me the second-luckiest

promoter in New Zealand.

We got through it and the weekend

after there was WOMAD in

New Plymouth. A week after that

Homegrown in Wellington never

happened.”

Covid-19 forced this year’s

event to move from a mild early

March slot to a chilly, blustery

Saturday in April, a relief for Parlane

and the community which

benefits directly or indirectly.

“April (10) was the sixth of

eight scenarios. It was getting

close,” he said.

Parlane said the festival’s

benefits were wide-ranging, from

Lincoln High School to local

restaurants, hoteliers and other

accommodation.

“A thousand cars at $52 (each),

50 campervans at $10 a night (at

the school), you’re not going to

make that sort of money from a

cake stall,” he said, adding that

about 20 per cent of tickets were

sold outside Canterbury.

Some accommodation for next

year was already booked solid.

“It’s a significant economic

benefit to the community, not

only from a fundraising point of

view,” he said.

Lincoln High School students

benefit to the tune of about

$12,000-$15,000 per year, with

money raised through car parking

revenue and gatekeeping

going towards projects, trips and

facilities.

They also have free use of stall

space in the food court to sell

food hampers.

“Hand-on-heart here, for a

lot of our families it can be the

difference between a kid being

able to afford to go on a trip

or not,” said deputy principal

Kylie Horan.

“To have that access (to funds)

can be extremely significant for

some of our families.”

School council members scan

tickets at the entrance, with the

lump sum provided from that

used for events at the school, like

a free sausage sizzle or the purchase

of benches or picnic tables.

Although the music might be

unfamiliar – dated even – Horan

said it was a popular weekend

assignment.

“The kids look forward to it

each year. They get good money

from it and they love the hype

and the vibe around it, especially

at the gates,” she said.

“All the community ends up

getting a slice of the pie,” added

Lincoln Lizards golden oldies

rugby president Mark Tweedy.

“Hotels and motels are fully

booked, all the cafes and bars

benefit. It’s not just the rugby

club that gets a whack of money.”

The Lincoln Rugby Club is paid

a fee for power usage and

their clubrooms.

“We do the marshalling,

signage and stuff like that,”

said Tweedy, who is among a

core group of 53 people that

has worked the event since its

inception.

A commercial cleaning crew

work over the weekend to return

the playing fields to their usual

state.

“My brother is in charge of

the grounds there, when it’s all

cleaned up he’ll get the pop-up

sprinklers going to give it a good

soaking,” Tweedy said.

The turf is also aerated to aid

its recovery before the uprights

and crossbars are reinstalled.

Asked if he had a wish-list of

musos for future festivals, Parlane

didn’t deviate from the vinyl

and CDs that comprised his playlist

for the 2XS graveyard slot.

“There’s heaps of bands I’d

love to have out here. Devo, Joan

Jett and the Blackhearts, Duran

Duran, The Human League,

Eurythmics … Abba would be

exceptional,” he said.

LINE-UP: Jordan Luck (top

left) has been a regular

since the festival’s debut in

2017. Stan Walker (top right)

broke the 80s-centric mould

by headlining in 2021, while

Leo Sayer (above) featured

in 2019 (photo Shane Jones)

and 10cc in 2020.

“Neil Diamond would be great

... Tom Jones.”

Dave Dobbyn and or DD

Smash are household names too,

while Parlane also has a selection

that might not resonate.

“One of my favourite bands is

The Tubes, they were one of those

bands that probably had one

hit. My favourite album is their

Completion Backward Principle

(1981),” he said.

“That album actually got me

into radio because I did

a voice track with it for my

first audition.”

The award recognises significant

contributions by youth to the life and wellbeing

of their community.

Neito has had significant involvement

with regional youth and environmental

committees, and has received scholarships

including Canterbury University’s

emerging leaders development

programme scholarship and the AUT Roy

Geddes Scholarship to attend the London

International Youth Science Forum.

Meanwhile, the district council is

undertaking improvements at the

wetlands (below).

Acting major projects manager Phil

Millar said the district council had

contracted McLenaghan Contracting to

reduce steep banks along about 800m

of LII River, and natural habitats to

undertake planting of the regraded edges.

The cost of the project is about $110,000,

including planning and consent fees.

BACKYARD CRITTERS

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in

entomology (insects and other invertebrates). Each

week he introduces a new species found in his

backyard at Lincoln. His column aims to raise public

awareness of biodiversity, the variety of living things

around us. Check out the full list of invertebrates

found at www.inaturalist.org/projects/backyardbiodiversity-bugs-in-my-lincoln-section

Look for larvae in young apple leaves

IF YOU have an apple tree or two in your

backyard, then you may encounter the

apple leaf midge Dasineura mali. The

most obvious indication of the midge is

the tightly rolled young apple leaves that

contain 3mm long, red, legless larvae.

This pest has a large distribution

throughout Europe, North America,

Argentina and New Zealand. It arrived

here from Europe in 1950 on imported

apple stock and has rapidly colonised the

country.

Adult flies are 1.5-2.5mm long and have

hairy, 1.5-2mm-long wings with reduced

venation. Females have a red abdomen

while males are smaller and black in colour.

Females produce pheromones that can

cause swarms of up to 100 males below

trees. After mating, eggs are laid in gaps

between buds and unfolding leaves. Eggs

are cigar-shaped, orange in colour and

0.3-0.7mm long.

Larvae emerge from eggs three-to-six

days after laying, and feeding causes the

rolled or folded galls characteristic of this

pest.

Rolled leaves may contain just a few

HORORATA 971 Te Pirita Road

Dairy Support, Grazing and Views

Suitable for various uses, this 26.6733ha block is currently used as a

dairy support block. With its grazing history and the added benefit of

cover under the Central Plains water scheme nutrient umbrella, this

property is well placed to continue dairy support.

The property has a delightful five-year-old three-bedroom home

built approximately five years ago. It is north facing to capture the

sun with a full-length verandah running along the north side - a very

enjoyable place to sit for a coffee and enjoy the amazing views of the

mountains. Open-plan living, dining and kitchen, family bathroom,

separate toilet, plus laundry. The home is heated by a free-standing

log fire and heat pump.

Out the back of the farm is an old 10m x 3m (approximate) shed.

Stock and domestic water (six units) comes from the district scheme,

whilst the irrigation is from Phase 1 of the CPW Scheme.

Hororata is a much-loved and central Canterbury farming location

with easy access to Darfield for most amenities.

• By Matt Slaughter

PETER SMITH is 82-years-old

and is still part of a rugby team.

A team of supporters that is.

The team call themselves the

Crushers, a group of rugbymad

Lady Wigram Retirement

Village residents who get

together to watch rugby and any

other sports they are interested

in.

Smith said the Crushers have

followed the Crusaders most

recent Super Rugby season

closely, attending two home

games live and watching the

others on TV.

Smith said a recent highlight

for 17 of the Crushers was

visiting the Southbridge house

where Dan Carter grew up,

seeing the goal posts on the

section where he used to

practice kicking, and getting

a tour of Southbridge’s rugby

clubrooms.

About 30 Lady Wigram

residents are part of the team.

Some are ardent rugby fans and

some watch less often.

Many of the Crushers played

sport at a high level in their

younger days, and Smith and

others still get out to pass the

rugby ball around.

Smith trialled for the Kiwis

rugby league team, other team

members played senior rugby,

one played hockey for New

Zealand and two are golfers

who have earned red coats for

representing their clubs for more

than 25 years.

Smith is the son of Pat Smith,

who captained the Kiwis in each

of his 38 appearances between

1947-49.

Smith said members enjoy the

social aspect of the group and

the friendships they have made

through watching rugby and

other sports.

“We enjoy the discussion

and the comradeship and we

often talk about games that we

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

were in and bits and pieces. It

is the comradeship of having

something in common, I think

that’s our biggest thing.

“Mostly, we’re averaged at

over 80. The more you can keep

your mind occupied and [have]

friendship, it does help you.”

Tens of thousands

enjoy new sports centre

More than 36,000 people aged 1–93 years old enjoyed the new Selwyn Sports Centre over the

first month since it opened.

Over the month 36,458 people enjoyed a wide range of sports, group fitness and general

recreation. Selwyn Sports Centre Manager Dave Tippett said the response had been huge.

Around 5000 people attended the opening family fun day with events and activities in and around

the Selwyn Sports Centre and Selwyn Aquatic Centre, helping to raise $4403 for the Halberg

Foundation. The centre is open from 6am-10pm and has been busy all day, every day since, Mr

Tippett said.

“We knew there was a need out there and it’s been brilliant to see the way that people have

embraced the centre. We’ve got baby gym in here right up to our oldest group fitness class

member at 93 and sports and activities for people all ages in between so it’s a fun space and

people are loving using it.”

In the first month over 100 teams played in Selwyn Netball competitions and the Selwyn Hawks

Basketball had more than 70 junior basketball teams playing at the centre.

Other sports including badminton and pickleball (a sport similar to tennis and badminton) filled the

available court space with around 35-40 players a night. Futsal and table tennis are also popular

activities at the Sports Centre. Over Queen's Birthday weekend the centre hosted the Canterbury

Floorball Open with 16 teams from around the South Island.

More than 3500 people attended group fitness classes and over 350 new members signed on to

group fitness classes.

Along with the formal classes, club bookings and competitions, there were 1522 casual entries.

“That’s all people in their own time just wanting to come in, paying the $3 entry fee to shoot some

hoops, use the walking track, or play other sports like tennis, just making the most of the space.”

Social netball and volleyball leagues are starting, with other social and community events also

being planned, and staff will continue to work with the community and trial ideas to make the

centre available to all potential users.

Road map for Community Committees confirmed

The Council has laid out a road map for the reforms of its community committees.

At last week's Council meeting the Council agreed to a process over the next year, to discharge 46

committees as committees of Council.

This will relieve them of the legal responsibilities of being part of Council, while allowing them to keep

functioning as independent community groups if they wish.

The Council will work with a remaining 24 committees on their future role and function and continue using

the strong mechanisms in place for supporting volunteer community groups and community-led initiatives.

Community Services and Facilities Group Manager Denise Kidd says the decision is the next step in a

long project working with the more than 70 committees to ensure communities were best served.

“Committees of Council have given great service and worked extremely hard for their communities over

a long time. However, we have reached a point where being committees of Council has shackled some

of these groups and caused frustrations. Most people agree 70 committees is too many and we need a

better system.”

Those frustrations included the restrictions of having to comply with legal requirements such as Health

and Safety legislation and not being able to submit to the Council’s Annual and Long-Term Plans.

“We have listened to those frustrations. We want to free groups to advocate for and work in their

communities without being hampered by those requirements. Volunteer community groups shouldn’t

have to wait for Council requests or permission to do good things with their community and for their

community,” Denise says.

The Council will also work to re-focus the community committees system to create something that

works for communities into the future. It will continue to work with, and support, the various volunteers,

sports clubs and user groups keen to give back to their communities in roles associated with reserves,

community pools and halls.

“We want committees to have a role representing their communities and we want to continue to be

engaged, receiving feedback from people on the ground and support community-led initiatives.”

Flood recovery support continues

Selwyn Emergency Management is moving to a recovery phase as it

continues to respond to community needs.

A local transition period is in place, moving from the state of

emergency to recovery.

Civil Defence will continue to work with Selwyn communities and

other agencies to identify any damage or welfare needs and provide

information on assistance and support services.

“We know many people are still suffering from the effects of this

severe weather event,” says Recovery Manager Al Lawn.

“Even though we’re moving away from a state of emergency, we

know that people have been hit hard by flood damage and other

disruption, in both urban and rural areas across Selwyn. We will

continue to work to support those affected.

“I would urge anyone who needs support as a result of this event to

contact us. Likewise, if people know of friends, family or neighbours

who have been affected and need help – get in touch and we will do

what we can to help.”

Selwyn District Council’s Civil Defence team remains available

24/7 and can be contacted on 0800 SELWYN (735 996) or

contactus@selwyn.govt.nz.

Stay safe on the roads this winter

Winter is back, with a new set of challenges for driving, so we’re

encouraging drivers to be alert, slow down and increase their

following distances.

As the weather changes driving challenges can change quickly with

fog, ice, snow, rain, shorter daylight hours and sunstrike.

The district has many shaded areas, which prevent roads

from thawing on cooler days. Staying alert and taking extra care is

essential, but winter driving does not have to be dangerous

or intimidating.

Preparing your vehicle and adjusting your driving for the conditions

goes a long way towards ensuring your and others' safety.

To help you start off safe we’ve created a four step checklist for

when you start and one for when you’re driving. Before you start your

car make sure your wiper blades, headlights and tyres are in good

condition and your windscreen is clear inside and out.

And when you’re driving – make sure you can see clearly through

your windows in all directions, watch out for shaded areas on the

road, keep your distance from the car in front and if the weather is

bad put your lights on.

More tips to stay safe

Plan ahead – check the weather forecast and avoid travel when

conditions are poor. Slow down, increase following distances

and be careful around corners and in shady places.

Driving in the wet

Stopping distances nearly double on wet roads. Slow down,

keep a generous following distance, take corners slowly and

heed road signs.

Driving in the snow and ice

Whenever possible, avoid driving in heavy snow. If you cannot

avoid it, slow down, avoid braking suddenly and carry chains.

Driving in fog

Turn on your headlights and keep them on low (dip) beam. Only

use fog lights when visibility is severely reduced. Slow down

and keep a generous following distance.

Driving with sun strike

Keeping your windscreen clean, inside and out can make the

difference between seeing someone and not.

For more tips on safe driving in different winter conditions visit

our website at selwyn.govt.nz/winterdriving.

• By Chris Barclay

SOUTHBRIDGE’S management

had a contingency plan if their

unbeaten squad slipped up in the

Luisetti Seeds Cup final, and it

played out hours after Southern

provided flood-hit Ashburton

with a timely boost.

Ellesmere’s Coleman Shield

holders headed back to their

headquarters after a 22-18 loss

in Hinds on Saturday, not just to

drown their sorrows.

“When the boys walked in

there we made sure they all got

to stand in front of the Coleman

Shield and kind of refocus on

what we have and what we’ve got

in front of us,” coach Reece Allen

said.

“Not to belittle the Luisetti

Cup but the Coleman Shield is a

prized possession that hangs on

our wall at the moment.”

Southern recovered from an

early 10-0 deficit to claim the

Canterbury combined competition

silverware, the ideal fillip

after the area was inundated by

floods.

Allen was left to rue a sequence

of missed opportunities as the

clubs now concentrate on their

sub union competitions.

“If it was 17-0 after 20 that

might have been a bit too far for

Southern,” he said.

“We camped on their line and

there were a couple of chances

there where we should have done

a wee bit better.”

Southern built a 22-13 lead and

although John McKeefry scored

heading into the final quarter,

the usually reliable Shannon

Donald could not add the extras.

“We camped up on their line

for the last five or six minutes

and if we’d converted that try

we could have taken a penalty,

but we were four back and had

to keep playing,” said Allen, who

praised Southern’s resilience

down the stretch.

“It was a ding-dong battle, and

the better team won.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Narrow loss for Southbridge in cup final

“Southern did a great job to

get their field into good nick

considering all the flooding. You

couldn’t blame the conditions, or

the officials.

“It just came down to one or

two very, very close moments. If

you can’t seal them . . . that’s the

way finals go.”

Southbridge have a bye this

weekend to recover from their

first loss of the season, they start

their Coleman Shield defence

against Waihora on June 26.

They already have a leg up on

their rivals because they carry

over points earned by Luisetti

Hornby, Darfield and West

Melton.

Nurse back in the wild ADVERTISEMENT

SPECIAL OFFER

KORU NUTRITION

A few years ago Kathy was

worried everything would

all come to a grinding halt.

A natural go-getter, her love

for the wild rugged outdoors

was calling but every form of

exercise really was taking its

toll. “I just love to get out into

nature and push myself, but

even on the easy rolling walks

I was struggling to keep up”.

Nursing responsibilities were

becoming increasingly harder

and some of the old climbing

activities took a back seat. What

Kathy wasn’t prepared for was

the feeling that the older she

got the more her joints needed

support, that she would have to

slow down and scarily it all felt

overwhelming; thankfully this

didn’t turn out to be the case.

Now in her seventies, Kathy

is back out doing what she

loves whilst still working in the

nursing home. “All of us work

hard, and joke around having a

laugh, then it turns serious and

they ask me, ‘Seriously Kathy,

you used to be so worried about

getting older - what’s changed,

what is your secret?’”

“I’ve realised it is actually

no longer a secret - I was just

a little slow on the uptake. I

read a review from legendary

broadcaster Peter Williams and

then scrolled through hundreds

of others on the product Koru

FX”.

“It’s a natural rub rather

than a pill and if Peter finds it

good, then it must be worth a

try. I tell you what, the review

wasn’t wrong. I tried it and

now I wouldn’t be without it!”

Koru FX cream by Koru

Nutrition has become NZ’s #1

fastest growing topical joint

support cream. With thousands

of happy customers, Koru FX

has set a new bar for joint

support.

“I feel like I am back to

my old self. Last year, I was

up Mount Taranaki again. I

wouldn’t be doing that without

a bottle of Koru FX in my

pocket. I laughed when I saw

some cheap knock-offs - I tell

all my friends, if it’s not Koru

Fx by Koru Nutrition...it’s not

real.”

Containing high quality oils

like calendula, arnica, manuka

and peppermint, along with

12 others, Koru FX provides

the perfect formulation for

supporting joints and muscles.

Always read the label and use as directed. If symptoms persist see your healthcare professional. Koru Nutrition Ltd, Christchurch.

Countless doctors and

pharmacists are recommending

Koru FX cream due to its

natural ingredients and fast

acting delivery.

If you’re looking for a fastacting

and long-lasting, natural

product, harnessing the benefits

of essential oils, then Koru FX

is for you.

Ask for Koru FX cream next

time you’re in the pharmacy

and try it for yourself.

IT HAS been baptism by fire for

members of the new Selwyn Stars

floorball club, as they participate

in high-level competition.

Floorball is fast-paced indoor

floor hockey played by mixed

teams. It has been able to expand

into the district now that facilities

are available at the new Selwyn

Sports Centre at Rolleston.

Selwyn Stars is just a few weeks

old, but that did not stop four of its

members from competing at the

Canterbury Floorball Open 2021,

an annual nationwide tournament

run by Canterbury Floorball.

Richard McGlashen, 43, of

West Melton, Mikayla Young,

13, of Rolleston, Sam King, 16,

of Rolleston, and Jan Vlk, 36, of

Rolleston, played as the Christchurch

Quakes in the tournament.

Canterbury Floorball is the

umbrella organisation for the

Selwyn Stars and fellow floorball

club, the Christchurch Quakes,

formed in 2014.

Canterbury Floorball

development manager Cherie

King said it was hoped that by

next year the Selwyn Stars would

have developed to such a level that

it could have its own team in

the competition.

Canterbury Floorball Open

2021 had been hosted in Selwyn

for the first time, on June 5 and

6. Sixteen teams from seven

national clubs played 48 games.

Winner of the open grade for

players 13 years and upwards was

the Hamilton Floorball Club.

Winner of the elite grade for

players 16 years and upwards was

the Wellington Storm Catchers.

the investment in a floorball

which is only the second floorball

pupil Chinaku Mutonhori was

overjoyed to meet her netball

idol, Tactix captain Jane Watson.

The nine-year-old from

Rolleston won the chance to meet

Watson, as well as fellow captain

Clare Kersten of Pulse, on centre

court at Christchurch Arena,

prior to the Tactix vs Pulse ANZ

Premiership game on June 5.

Chinaku said she was wowed

by the Tactix 55-52 win,

especially after the Pulse’s gain in

the final few minutes.

“I felt tense at the end, and then

a bit relieved,” Chinaku said.

“Jane was great on defence, she

jumped heaps.”

Chinaku also led the teams

Use garlic and onions to jazz up roast

Sunday roasts are

a traditional Kiwi

favourite. Try adding

some powerful flavours

for a change that

should please the

whole family

Roast beef with garlic and

onions

Ingredients

1.5kg rolled roast beef

2 medium onions

2 carrots

2 sticks celery

1 bulb of garlic

1 bunch of mixed fresh herbs ,

such as thyme, rosemary, bay,

sage

olive oil

Directions

Remove the beef from the

fridge 30min before you want to

cook it, to let it come up to room

temperature.

Preheat the oven to 240 deg C.

Wash and roughly chop the

vegetables – there’s no need

to peel them. Break the garlic

bulb into cloves, leaving them

unpeeled.

Pile all the veges, garlic and

herbs into the middle of a large

roasting tray and drizzle with oil.

Drizzle the beef with oil and

season well with sea salt and

black pepper, then rub all over

the meat. Place the beef on top of

the vegetables.

Place the tray in the oven,

then turn the heat down

immediately to 200 deg C

and cook for 1 hour for

medium beef. If you prefer it

medium-rare, take it out five to

10min earlier. For well done,

leave it in for another 10

to 15min.

If you’re doing roast potatoes

and veges, this is the time to

crack on with them – get them

into the oven for the last 45min

of cooking.

Baste the beef halfway through

cooking and if the veges look dry,

add a splash of water to the tray

to stop them from burning.

When the beef is cooked

to your liking, take the tray out of

the oven and transfer the beef to

a board to rest for 15min. Cover

it with a layer of tin foil and a tea

towel and leave

aside while you make your

gravy, horseradish sauce and

yorkshire puddings.

Baked chicken breasts

Ingredients

4 tablespoons olive oil

3 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons whole grain

mustard

1 tablespoon smooth and mild

Dijon mustard

4 cloves garlic, peeled and

minced

1-2 tablespoons fresh lemon

juice

1/2 teaspoon paprika

2 pounds (1 kg) boneless skinless

chicken breasts, (4 large

chicken breasts)

Salt and cracked black pepper,

to season

2 tablespoons fresh chopped

parsley, to garnish (optional)

Lemon wedges, to serve

(optional)

Directions

Onions roast

up well in

the oven

with beef,

don’t forget

to garnish

with herbs

before

serving.

Preheat oven to 200 deg C.

Lightly grease a baking tray/

sheet with oil and line with foil or

parchment paper.

Combine the oil, honey,

mustards, garlic, lemon juice

and paprika in a small bowl to

combine well.

Place the chicken onto the

prepared baking sheet (tray).

Season generously with salt and

pepper. Spoon three-quarters

of the honey mustard mixture

evenly over the chicken and

spread evenly all over each

breast. Pour a quarter of a cup of

water onto the baking sheet to

prevent burning, creating a sauce

while baking.

Bake until cooked through

(about 20-30min, depending

on the thickness of the breasts).

Spoon the remaining sauce over

each breast and broil (or grill) for

a further three-to-four minutes

on medium-high heat to brown

the chicken and caramelise the

edges.

Cover with foil and allow to

rest for 10min to let the juices

settle before serving.

Garnish with parsley and serve

immediately with lemon wedges.

Notes

To include roasted asparagus,

arrange them onto the same

baking sheet around the chicken

in the last 10 minutes of cooking

time. Rotate them in the pan

juices or pan sauce and season

with salt and pepper.

Most elder abuse is

hidden in plain sight

Abusers are often someone close – A family member, a caregiver,

someone trusted. If you’re concerned about how someone is being treated,

it’s OK to help.

GARDENING

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Plenty to keep you warm in the garden

GROWTH: June is a safe month to plant ornamental or fruit

trees. Don’t forget to use compost.

JUNE NORMALLY brings rain

and cold weather, but there is still

plenty to do in the garden such as

pruning and planting trees.

Here are some top tasks to keep

you busy and warm.

Now is the time to start planting

any pip and stone fruit trees.

New young trees are now available

in garden centres; ensure you

select healthy looking specimens.

Consider your planting areas

carefully, making sure your young

tree has full exposure to the sun

and is sheltered from strong prevailing

winds.

For existing pip and stone fruit

trees, you can now begin pruning.

Try to keep the tree height

under three metres to allow for

easier harvesting and netting of

trees where birds are a problem.

June is also a safe time to plant

new ornamental trees and shrubs.

Planting technique is important to

allow new plants to thrive in both

climatic extremes for example wet

winters and hot dry summers.

Also incorporate plenty of compost

into the soil when planting

new specimens. Spread compost

around existing trees and shrubs

to give them a boost.

Continue to keep sowing and

planting winter veges such as

broccoli, cabbage cauliflower,

peas and spinach to ensure a

continuous supply.

PRICKLY: Get out the gloves and secateurs, it’s now time

to prune roses.

Protect empty garden beds by

sowing green manure crops for

example lupins. They protect the

top soil from wind and water erosion

and add organic matter back

to the soil when dug in. Wait till

they are about 15-20cm high then

chop up with a spade as you dig

them back into the soil.

Prune roses when all the leaves

have fallen and apply a winter

clean up spray of copper oxychloride

or lime sulphur after

pruning. Remove and destroy

any diseased wood after pruning.

Replace any rose specimens that

have not performed adequately or

were heavily infected with black

spot or rust during the growing

season. Choose new varieties

from catalogues or visit your local

gardening centre.

June is an excellent time to plan

new gardens in your property in

preparation for spring planting. It

is a good idea to monitor future

garden areas for cold winds and

excessive moisture, as both conditions

will influence what you can

plant in that area.

Plant new shelter belts and or

hedges where they are required.

Use your outdoor living areas

• UV protection for summer

Many ways to help

flood recovery

Central Canterbury farmers and

landowners walloped by one of the worst

floods in decades can register for help

with cleaning up their properties through

the Government’s Enhanced Taskforce

Green (ETFG) scheme.

The Government is offering councils and

approved agencies $500,000 to hire job

seekers to help with clean-up activities,

such as clearing debris.

The funding is expected to help councils

match people willing to help with work

that needs to be done.

“Cantabrians are great at lending a hand

to neighbours in need, and I encourage

any farmers or landowners who need

help clearing debris or with other flood

damage-related work to register for help,”

Canterbury Civil Defence Emergency

Management Group Controller Neville

said.

Selwyn Civil Defence is also pitching in

for flood recovery, preparing a plan for

collection and disposal of on-farm waste

caused by flood damage.

Landowners and managers are asked to

please separate domestic and farm waste

into two piles, or slips if available,

One container should be for domestic/

household waste, and the other for farm

items and infrastructure such as fencing,

silage and baleage wrap.

For lifestyle and small block holders

who may need to dispose of animals

or dead stock, the council recommend

animals should be buried at least 100m

away from any surface water body (river

or lake), marine area, water bores (bury

downstream, not upstream) and away

from a property boundary

Disposal sites should also be 3m above

the seasonal high-water table and covered

with at least 0.5m of soil.

For multiple burials, it’s better to use

several smaller pits, rather than larger,

deep single pits. If you do not have

suitable equipment, or need assistance

with disposal, please contact Selwyn

Civil Defence on 0800 SELWYN

(0800 735 996).

The Ministry for Primary Industries

(MPI) has support available for farmers

who need help sourcing supplementary

feed or grazing for your livestock.

Contact the Feed Coordination Service

on 0800 FARMING (0800 327 646) and

follow the voice prompts. Alternatively,

visit www.mpi.govt.nz/funding-ruralsupport/adverse-events/dealing-withfloods/#support

For help with farm animal welfare

contact MPI on 0800 00 83 33.

For pets, horses and lifestyle block

animals, the SPCA has a contact line for

those affected by the floods. Phone

03 349 7057 for assistance with relocating

animals, sourcing animal feed and

other needs. If you have property or

infrastructure damage on your farm,

contact your insurer initially.

National farming agencies are rallying

to sweeten the “bitter blow” of the

Canterbury floods, leaning on experience

of previous storms.

Obvious priorities for relief agencies

include getting damaged infrastructure

repaired and feed supplies organised.

farmers to lose valuable feed crops and

useful flood recovery resources available,

developed after previous floods to help

farmers prepare for rain events and deal

with both the immediate and long-term

consequences.

This fact sheet will help you prioritise

tasks during the immediate aftermath of

a flood. It also provides guidance around

what needs to be done in the weeks and

months following, particularly if you are

dealing with silt and/or slips.

PEOPLE

Immediate priorities

1. Is everyone accounted for: family, staff and

neighbours?

2. Are homes safe?

3. Check if power and phones are working. Report

any outages (see contacts on page 8).

4. Watch out for new hazards: the lie of the land

will be different; and stressed livestock are

unpredictable to handle.

5. Consider appointing a Crisis Manager to handle

people-related matters. There’s an excellent health

and safety post-flood pamphlet about how to

safely make best use of volunteers (see B+LNZ

resources on page 8).

During the first week

1. Look after your physical and mental health.

2. Eat well.

3. Take breaks, when you can.

4. Accept help.

5. Keep in regular contact with your neighbours and

work in with each other, where you can.

LIVESTOCK

Immediate priorities

1. Are stock safe?

2. Check fences.

3. If possible, move stock to where there is shelter,

such as trees.

4. Check they have access to clean water. If not,

move them to a paddock with a reliable water

supply or set up a portable trough.

5. Ensure adequate feed, but be careful stock don’t

overeat any newly-introduced feed (introduce new

feed in limited amounts to reduce the risk of acidosis).

6. Monitor pasture for excess silt. Silt intake can

cause ketosis and scouring (check flooded troughs

for excess silt, also).

7. Keep an eye out for stressed stock, e.g. lone animals

that have wandered away from other stock, lethargic

stock, or stock running up and down fence lines.

particular needs,” he said.

For the record, McIvor singled out

Federated Farmers for particular praise

“in leading the sector’s response on the

ground.”

B+LNZ itself was also working with

DairyNZ, the Ministry for Primary

Industries, the Rural Support Trust and

a number of other agencies to provide

farmers with the help they need, McIvor

said.

Plenty of appeal in base model Yaris Cross

I’D NEVER BE put off by entrylevel

cars if a range has several

variants.

Sure, there’s a lot of exciting

technology in the high-spec, top

grade models, but in this modern

age all new vehicles have bling -

features and enough gadgetry to

satisfy.

Take, for example, Toyota’s

Yaris Cross, it’s a range that starts

at $29,990 for a petrol-only GX

model. For my money that’s good

buying for a vehicle that looks like

an SUV, but given its compact size

is probably best described as a

crossover model, a large hatchback

which caters well for the

small family.

The Yaris Cross is also available

in a higher grade – Limited - but

that is a $38,990 hybrid model,

although there is also a GX hybrid

that lists at $33,990. As I’ve alluded

to, GX grade is perfect for

someone who doesn’t need overly

flashy.

It’s important to note, though,

the GX grade still includes a raft

of technology included in the

Toyota Safety Sense suite of kit.

I evaluated the Yaris Cross

hybrid in these columns in March

and liked its trendy style and

involving driving dynamics – the

hybrid system is coupled to a willing

three-cylinder 1.5-litre engine

that charms with its response and

characteristics.

That same engine powers the

petrol-only model. It’s fair to say

that in the Yaris Cross’ case I’m

torn between hybrid and nonhybrid,

each variant has its own

merits, and it’s fair to say the

hybrid would probably win out in

my situation. However, the petrolonly

model will save you a bit of

cash it you can’t come up with the

$4k to buy into the hybrid.

As an aside, the entire Yaris

range is powered by the new

driveline, and I’m yet to be disappointed

with the new configuration

from Toyota.

Developing 88kW and 145Nm,

the outputs are reached a little

tall in the rev band (6600 and

4800rpm respectively), but threecylinder

units develop a lot of

natural torque and you end up

with solid acceleration and easy

motion at highway speed.

The Yaris Cross won’t set any

speed records, but it will reach

100km/h from a standstill in

TOYOTA YARIS CROSS GX: Well-equipped for a budget price.

under 12sec and plough through

a highway overtake (80-120km/h)

in 7.5sec. If you are brave enough

to risk your licence, the petrolonly

Yaris Cross is also listed with

a 180km/h top speed.

Drive is channelled to the front

wheels through a continuously

variable transmission. There are

no surprises there, Toyota has

developed CVT well so it works

almost like a traditional automatic.

The benefit is little drain on the

engine, power that isn’t wasted

through a torque converter. As

a consequence, Toyota claims

some quite startling fuel usage

figures for the Yaris Cross, that’s

no surprise, when I evaluated the

standard Yaris, the wee three-potter

was an absolute fuel miser.

The Yaris Cross is listed with

a 5.4-litre per 100km combined

cycle average. That fits well with

the readout on the evaluation

car – 7l/100km. That figure was

helped by a long highway drive,

the engine turning over freely

at 2100rpm at 100km/h, returning

an instantaneous figure of

4l/100km.

I had an item to pick up in the

McKenzie Country, so the Yaris

Cross was presented with the fabulous

State Highway 72 scenic route

for the round trip. It cruises well

with little noise intrusion and an

amazingly comfortable ride. The

suspension is all class, even given

there’s a tube beam rear axle tying

the two rear wheels together. That

aside, the spring and damper rates

are a perfect compromise between

ride comfort, absorbing road ripples

and containing body balance

in a corner.

• Price – Toyota Yaris Cross

GX, $29,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4180mm; width, 1765mm;

height, 1590mm

• Configuration – Threecylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1490cc, 88kW,

145Nm, continuously

variable automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 11.8sec

• Fuel usage – 5.4l/100km

It’s not often you get a clean run

through the twisty, hilly section

leading in and out of Fairlie, but I

scored that section free of traffic on

my return journey and punted the

Yaris Cross through there with a

bit of motion. I can report it steers

beautifully through its Bridgestone

tyres (205/65 x 16in), directional

change is accurate and the entire

car is composed under pressure.

The GX Yaris Cross is aimed at

the budget buyer but those people

will still feel as if they have scored

a bargain. Major features include

full electrics, radar cruise control

and multi-function steering wheel.

It’s been a heady year or so

for Toyota New Zealand, new

models have landed constantly

and the choice for the Toyota

buyer has never been better. The

Yaris Cross is just one model

in a comprehensive range. I

particularly like the concept and I

particularly like the entry-level

model.

DON’T MISS OUT

ON THIS EXCITING

NEW STAGE!

Careful consideration was given to the existing

properties on site and all five will be relocated

to south Canterbury and repurposed. If you’re

wondering who’s moving in, scouting for tenants

is currently underway but it’s likely that we’ll be

seeing the likes of a micro-brewery (which will

certainly be popular), a Thai/ Vietnamese/Malaysian

dine-in restaurant, an Italian dine-in restaurant has

expressed interest, four small format retail outlets

providing a good mix of tastes and services (think

burgers, pizza, fish & chips, butcher), and a state-ofthe-art

gym (who already has other successful and

established locations).

The final site is yet to be confirmed but given its

huge size will likely attract some exciting options

for locals. A second storey commercial space was

considered but research indicated it wouldn’t be

successful, plus it would be counterproductive to the

provided parking facilities. There will be a carwash

located in the carpark, likely to provide a groomwhile-you-shop

experience. And with the modern

world moving towards more use of electric vehicles,

it’s also possible that charging stations will be made

available for residents.

The developers have been working alongside Selwyn

District Council to ensure a good cross section of

opportunities are made available, and that it aligns

with the Council’s plan for Rolleston. You can expect

construction to start sometime in August, with a

planned opening around June 2022.

Timeless country living

Adored by the same family since it was built many

years ago, this charming country property, known as

Kilrea, will hold immense appeal for buyers seeking the

joys of rural living, to accommodate animals for the

children or just to get away from the city. Set upon

1.7ha of pastoral land in the heart of the Selwyn

District, the character-filled homestead blends original

details including leadlight windows and timber fire

surrounds with more recent enhancements, but plenty

of scope remains to further refresh the decor to create

a home that meets the demands of modern family life.

[Edition datE]

Four things you MUST

do before buying a home

Buying a home is a big deal. It’s likely to be the most expensive thing you buy,

and it can be a complicated legal process. It might be tempting to take a few

shortcuts, but failing to do things properly could cause more problems later.

Here are our top four tasks for home

buyers.

1. Research the property

The real estate agent selling the

property acts on behalf of the seller,

however they are also required to

tell you everything they know about

the property. They must respond

professionally to all your enquiries and

not withhold any details. Remember

that you still need to do your own

due diligence. That means getting a

title search so you can find out all the

facts about the property’s ownership,

boundary and access, as held by Land

Information New Zealand (LINZ). It’s

a good idea to get a Land Information

Memorandum (LIM), which shows

information held by the local council

about the property and land. For

valuable feedback on the property’s

condition, get a report done by

an inspector who has professional

indemnity insurance and carries out

their work in accordance with the New

Zealand Property Inspection Standard.

Although this all costs money, it will

save you more in the long term. Sellers

may occasionally provide some of this

information for you. If this happens,

check that it is up-to-date.

2. Get legal advice

Buying property is expensive, and it

can cost even more if something goes

wrong. That’s why it’s important to get

legal advice before you sign anything.

A lawyer will handle all the paperwork

involved in the process, including the

title search, and offer impartial advice.

If you don’t have a lawyer, the New

Zealand Law Society can help you find

one at propertylawyers.org.nz.

3. Understand the sale process

There are several methods of buying

and selling property, for example,

tender or auction. It’s important to

understand the process for the property

you are buying. Practices can vary

between agencies so make sure you

confirm details with them. The Home

Buyer’s Guide at buyingahome.reaa.

govt.nz has more helpful advice.

4. Read the sale and purchase

agreement and understand what it

means

The sale and purchase agreement

is your contract with the seller. It is

crucial to read it very carefully and get

legal advice before you sign. You can

negotiate the terms and conditions of

an agreement, but once you sign it,

there’s no going back.

List your home with us,

we will save you thousands.

DemandFOR

LIFESTYLE PROPERTIES

IN CANTERBURY

CONTINUES!

Greg Roberts

Licensed Business Owner

Even as the leaves disappear and frost settles over the fields, there is no

denying the appeal of lifestyle properties throughout Canterbury. Stars

stretch across the sky on crisp, black nights, while by day the snowy

Southern Alps line the horizon.

The appeal is also evident in the continued strength of our local market, it

is early days since the current government introduced measures to stem

growth in the booming property market, but typically our lifestyle and rural

buyers are seeking to invest in the enjoyment of their life rather than as a

speculative investment, as such demand shows very little indications of

diminishing.

This is our domain, with eight offices spanning the region, at Harcourts

Four Seasons we have nearly 105 sales staff, including more than 20 who

specialise in rural and lifestyle properties.

Our co-owner Greg Roberts says the economies of scale inherent in being

part of the country’s leading real estate brand have important benefits for

clients, as our agents are equipped with the latest data, first-class training,

But just as important for Harcourts Four Seasons’ consistently

above-market results has been the customer-centric approach of our team,

he says.

“Given the improvements to the roading network into and outof

Christchurch, we’re confident in the continued popularity of rural

lifestyle properties.”

“Our rural/lifestyle agents have all owned, lived or worked on lifestyle

properties or farms, and they’re all active in their local communities,” Greg

explains. “It’s what we’re all about.”

We hold a dominant position in the rural-lifestyle market, with a territory

running from Hanmer Springs, through Christchurch, to Lincoln.
