Business operators forming

group to fight flyover plan

INDUSTRIAL and retail

businesses along Jones Rd at

Rolleston are forming an action

group to fight the town’s proposed

overbridge plans.

Representatives of businesses along

the road plan to meet tomorrow

to form the group and collate an

alternative proposal.

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport

Agency is seeking the views of the

public on highway improvements,

including the plans for a flyover

bridge between Rolleston township

and the industrial hub.

THe $125 million project for

Rolleston is part of the

Government’s $12 billion New

Zealand Upgrade Programme

launched last year, which includes

a $300 million package for

Canterbury.

THe two-lane overbridge is

proposed to cross State Highway 1

from Rolleston Drive to Hoskyns Rd.

Tailored Energy Solutions on Jones

Rd will be hosting the meeting, to be

at 4pm.

Project manager Stew Clouston

said the first Tailored Energy

Solutions and the other businesses

on Jones Rd knew of the flyover, was

when NZTA announced the plans on

Tuesday last week.

Thieves strike at building sites

NEWS 3

In Brief

• By Susan Sandys

BRAZEN THIEVES got away

with about $14,000 of items from

two neighbouring residential

building sites at the new Wilfield

subdivision in West Melton.

Master Builders says the threat

of such thefts is increasing as

building materials become more

expensive and in shorter supply.

The thieves struck overnight

Tuesday last week, stealing an

outboard motor from a boat, and

building materials.

Builder Jessie de Wys said

about $5000 of materials, including

30 sheets of plywood, six

sheets of 6m roofing iron, about

30m of 6 x 2 timber framing and

fixing componentry, was stolen

from the site where his company

JD Homes was building a house.

“How do I feel about it? I don’t

think you can put that in the

paper,” de Wys said.

He believed the thieves had

been opportunist, taking the

items from the site as they

burgled the one alongside,

which they had accessed after

lifting a gate from its hinges on a

neighbouring farm property off

West Coast Rd. Tracks could be

seen in the mud, suggesting the

thieves had driven in with a ute

and a trailer.

While de Wys believed thefts

from building sites were increasing,

police say they are not.

David Swain owns the neighbouring

home under construction

that was targeted. He had

the outboard motor from his

boat, which had a replacement

value of about $5500, stolen.

“They have obviously scoped

it out to avoid cameras,” Swain

said.

The site’s builder is Carl, who

only wanted to give his first

name.

Carl said an entire delivery of

materials for the pre-clad stage

of the home had been stolen,

costing about $3500. The items,

including building paper, cavity

batons, surfeit sheets, PVC

mouldings and timber, had been

taken from where they were

stored in the home’s uncompleted

garage.

Senior Sergeant Dean Harker

said police

were following

up on a vehicle

seen in the

area. Thefts

from building

sites had not

increased in

John

the district.

John Hamilton said the threat

of theft was increasing with the

market for building materials

being affected by rising costs and

supply issues.

“It’s always been around, but

now the materials are becoming

very expensive. Before it

was whiteware and tools, but

now everything is on the table,”

Hamilton said.

He urged builders to make

things difficult for opportunist

thieves. They could invest in

a portable security camera

system, tie up or bolt down

packs of timber on site, or pick

up building materials in smaller

portions from the merchant and

use them as they went.

AMBULANCES BUSY

High demand for emergency

ambulances in the district,

reflects a nationwide trend.

From the first week of June to

the third week of July, demand

across the mid-Canterbury St

John district, which Selwyn

is part of, was up 14 per cent

on the same period last year.

Ambulances have responded

to 1058 incidents, compared

to 927 incidents last year. St

John mid-Canterbury territory

manager Charlotte Broms said

in the case of emergency, people

should still phone 111. “If their

condition is not immediately

life threatening, there may be a

significant delay in responding

an ambulance,” she said.

DOG BITES INCREASE

The number of incidents of dogs

biting people has increased.

There were 20 incidents of dogs

biting people recorded by the

district council for the 2020/21

year, compared to 15 in 2019/20,

17 in 2018/19 and 18 in 2017/18.

The corresponding number of

incidents for dogs biting other

animals are 67 for 2020/21, and

68, 83 and 60 for the previous

three years. A district council

spokesperson said the figures

showed the number of dog bites

remaining stable in the last four

years.

GEOFF BOOTH fears he will

not get the answers he needs

as the coronial inquiry into his

son’s death drags on.

It is coming up to four years

since the Greendale man lost

Liam, at the age of 21, in a suspected

suicide.

Booth said the approach

to the October 2 anniversary

was all the more difficult as he

considered this could be marked

without the inquiry having been

completed.

“To me, it’s almost disrespectful

to Liam’s life,” Booth said.

Booth is among bereaved

family members calling for

a reduction to the years-long

delays. They want more coroners,

access to free legal representation

and medical experts during the

inquest process, as well as more

support.

don’t know what the date is. You

don’t know how long you have to

wait, you don’t know whether it’s

next week, next month or next

year,” Booth said.

Booth fears there is so much

backlog in inquiries, the coroner

will make a finding on Liam’s

death following a hearing “on

the papers.” These are not public

hearings, and family members,

witnesses and other parties do

not attend.

Booth wanted the hearing,

which happens towards the end

of the inquiry, to be an inquest.

Inquests are generally held in

court and the coroner can hear

from witnesses in person.

He said this would give him

the opportunity to question

health authorities and personnel

about what he believed was a

failure in their duty of care.

“I want to look them in the

eye, so they can see the end

result of not doing their job correctly,”

Booth said.

The coroner’s office was not

able to provide reassurance to

Booth via the Selwyn Times on

whether the hearing would be

an inquest or a hearing on the

papers. However, it gave some

indication of what may be contributing

to the delay in Liam’s

case.

Coroner Bruce Hesketh said

every death reported to the coroner

was different, and coroners

must consider evidence from a

range of sources.

“While a coroner will also

typically seek medical information,

they may put their inquiry

on hold pending the outcome of

another agency’s investigation,”

Hesketh said.

This was the case for Liam’s

death, where the Health and

Disability Commissioner is conducting

an investigation.

“Once the investigation is

complete (in these sorts of cases),

a decision can be made about

whether an inquest will be held,”

Hesketh said.

Chief coroner

Judge Deborah

Marshall also

responded to

the Selwyn

Times, outlining

moves that

waiting times.

She said a programme

“Other initiatives are also being

planned to address the high number

of deaths by natural causes

that are referred to the coroner,”

Marshall said.

In addition, she expected the

length of time would reduce once

the coronial bench was up to full

strength for a sustained period of

time, with 18 full-time coroners

and eight relief coroners.

Booth welcomed the work

under way and initiatives being

planned. He suspected waiting for

the ruling from the commission,

to which he had complained

a long time ago, was just one

contributing factor to the delay.

He added that there had been a

deficit in coroners for many years,

and the law needed to be changed

so the maximum number could

be increased from 18.

“Some days I have a: ‘Could I,

should I, would I? What would I

have done differently? How could

I have foreseen what was going to

happen?’ It’s those sorts of things

that play on my mind going

forward, and until I get that day

in court or ruling on papers, I’m

in the dark, I still don’t know,” he

said.

“Nothing is ever going to

bring Liam back, but at the end

of the day I don’t want other

people to go through the same

heartache that I have gone

through.”

Bovis claimed 1200-plus cows

• By Susan Sandys

STRINGENT biosecurity

measures and practices remain

in place on Lincoln University’s

dairy farms after more than

1200 cows were culled as a result

of Mycoplasma bovis infection.

This month marks four years

since the bacteria was first found

in New Zealand cattle. Currently,

only three active properties

remain, all in mid-Canterbury,

which has encouraged “cautious

optimism” among scientists that

the Government will meet its

goal of eradication.

A Lincoln University spokesperson

said restrictive place

notices applicable to the farms

were lifted last month.

This followed the university

having earlier adhered to the

process of depopulating and decontaminating

both its Lincoln

University Research Dairy Farm

and Ashley Dene Farm.

“This involved more than 1200

animals,” the spokesperson said.

Both farms had been cleaned,

disinfected and restocked in accordance

with the Ministry for

Primary Industries eradication

programme, and were operational.

The university had been able

to complete some of the research

that was under way at the time

the infection was confirmed,

such as milking frequency stud-

ies.

While there had been a loss

from a genetics stance, one of

the advantages of having no

animals on the farm for 60 days

while it was disinfected was that

paddocks could be prepared

for future research. Hundreds

of suction sample cups were

installed to allow nitrate concentrations

to be recorded in a range

of pastures.

Massey University cattle

reproduction specialist Professor

Scott McDougall said that with

only three active properties,

there was cautious optimism

that eradication may be achievable.

“However, long-term surveillance

will be required before

freedom from infection can be

declared,” McDougall said.

More than $200 million has

been paid out to farmers in

compensation and more than

170,000 cattle culled throughout

the programme.

MPI M bovis programme director

Stuart Anderson acknowledged

farmers’ personal efforts

and sacrifices.

“We are on track towards

eradication and owe a debt of

gratitude to all farmers who have

worked with us along the way,”

Anderson said.

He anticipated the usual increase

in detect results from bulk

tank milk screening this spring

as MPI actively looked for the

“last pockets of infection.”

“We are looking harder than

ever and finding fewer instances

of infection. This indicates we

are getting in front of the disease,”

Anderson said.

When buying stock, farmers

should always check the source

of cattle and their health history

with their stock agents. It was

also important to keep national

animal identification and tracing

records up to date, he said.

Concern Jones Rd

would be less accessible

• From page 1

“THey have just made a plan

and said: ‘This is what we want

to do,’ without consulting

anyone. Their answer to that is:

‘We are consulting now,’ but they

are actually doing it too late,”

Clouston said.

He said if the proposal went

ahead as it stood, it would

result in the closure of the

State Highway 1/Hoskyns Rd

intersection and the Hoskyns

Rd/Jones Rd intersection.

THis would make Jones Rd less

accessible and result in a loss

of business for at least some of

the premises there, as well as a

potential reduction in their real

estate value.

However, not all

representatives from the more

than 40 businesses on Jones

Rd are concerned about the

consultation process.

Canterbury Cranes Ltd

director Blair Keating said he

also did not want to see access to

Jones Rd cut off from Hoskyns

Rd.

He said he was among more

than 30 people who attended

an NZTA consultation session

at the district council offices on

Saturday.

Most people had walked away

with the feeling they were being

listened to.

NZTA director of regional

relationships James Caygill

said, when the proposal was

announced, that the flyover,

alongside intersection changes

and a new service lane, would

mean safer and more efficient

commuter and freight routes and

a freer flowing highway.

Meanwhile, NZTA is also

consulting on reducing the

80km/h and 100km/h State

Highway 1 speed limits from

Hoskyns Rd to Dunsandel.

Between 2010 and 2019, 139

people were either killed or

injured in crashes on this stretch

of road.

Following last week’s

announcement, NZTA held

Springfield ready for winter festival

SPRINGFIELD will come alive

on Saturday when its inaugural

Winter Magic NZ is held.

Organisers Isabella Irsigler and

Tara Keogh are basing the festival

on the highly successful Blue

Mountains’ Winter Magic Festival

in Katoomba held around

the winter solstice each year. The

Australian event celebrates arts

and performance, hosts a large

parade and attracts up to 10,000

people.

The Springfield event will be at

Tawera Hall, 9am to 3.30pm.

Irsigler and Keogh are organising

singers, dancers, magicians

and a puppet theatre to take

to the stage. There will also be

about 50 market stalls, selling

everything from art and colourful

socks to antiques and pottery,

while workshops include kokedama,

origami, felting and trap

building. There will be lantern

making for children preceding

an early evening lantern walk

around the village following the

festival.

“The whole idea is to bring

the community a lovely day, and

celebrate connection, the tiny

wonder of warmth and light during

these dark winter evenings,

and a magical time for everyone

to enjoy,” Irsigler said.

She said the idea of holding

Winter Magic took hold when

she was herself in Katoomba

enjoying the festival there.

“It’s a big community event

and I absolutely miss it,” she said.

Keogh has also been inspired

by the Katoomba event after

spending time in the Blue Mountains

town.

Irsigler and Keogh have a lot

in common. They were both

attracted to Springfield by its

mountainous beauty after coming

to New Zealand from the

Northern Hemisphere originally,

Irsigler from Austria and Keogh

from England. However, the pair

said they had capitalised on their

differences when it came to planning

Winter Magic.

Irsigler trained as an art

therapist and photographer,

while Keogh’s background is in

finance, logistics planning and

infrastructure projects.

“We have been brimming with

Organisers Tara Keogh and

Isabella Irsigler.

ideas, respectively leaning on

our skills to share the organising

which has made the journey

fun,” Keogh said.

The pair hope the festival will

become an annual event.

of throwing the salmon back will

not be allowed.

The Central South Island and

North Canterbury fish and game

councils have introduced the

new bag limit to help save New

Zealand’s wild Chinook salmon

species. It follows consulting

with anglers last year and jointly

seeking government approval.

North Canterbury Fish and

Game Council chairman Alan

Strong said the wild sea-run

salmon fishery had been in

decline for more than 20 years.

“Traditional regulatory

options haven’t been working for

fish and game, so new techniques

were required,” Strong said.

The spawning runs now see

less than 10 per cent of the

numbers seen in the 1990s.

Strong has a hut at the Lower

Selwyn Huts and fishes for searun

salmon in the Rakaia and

Waimakariri rivers.

He himself had not caught any

in the last few years.

He said the season limit is

expected to affect only about five

per cent of salmon anglers, who

catch more than two per year.

Strong said the detail had not

need to protect the fishery. The

regulations were “adaptive” and

the bag limit could increase

again in coming years.

Fish and Game says the fishery

decline could be caused by a host

of factors, such as hydropower

development, irrigation

practices, and those associated

with ocean temperatures, habitat

and water quality.

Overseas research had shown

the advantages of limiting season

bags.

Angler catch surveys indicate

that after spending up to

three years at sea, between 40

per cent and 60 per cent of

salmon returning to spawn in

Canterbury rivers are caught by

anglers.

It is estimated that a season

limit bag of two fish will reduce

total catch by about 35 per cent,

directly increasing the number

of fish that can spawn and

sustain future generations

of salmon.

Feeding your cats and dogs

raw and natural food is now

even easier as local business

Di’s K9 Grooming in Goulds

Road launches a new sideline

to the business.

Owner Diane Wheeler

has long been a passionate

advocate for raw food.

“As a groomer I have seen

how this helps dog with skin

and other health issues over

the years, along their general

wellbeing,” says Di.

Cats are often the hardest to find

a great food for as they can be fussy

eaters and Diane’s cat is now also a

raw food advocate along with her two

pet dogs.

The raw food is available in frozen

medallions or chunks of beef,

chicken, rabbit, venison, wallaby and

salmon and have no hidden additives.

Di’s K9 also stocks chicken necks

to keep your dog’s teeth clean along

with canon and brisket bones, beef

necks, deer antlers and rabbit ears.

Advocates of raw food diets see the

benefits of shinier coats, improved

dental health, increased energy and

healthier coats.

Her range of Ziwi Peak products for

both cats and dogs are also natural

and New Zealand grown.

“I can’t speak highly enough

of this top quality food that

is gently air dried to protect

the nutrients. It’s also clean

and convenient to handle,

has no hidden hormones or

growth promotants and no

fillers like grains, rice, soy or

potatoes,” says Diane.

Di’s K9 Grooming also

sells a range of supplements

including green lip mussel

treats and flax seed oil which is a

source of Omega 3 and can help with

joint and mobility issues such as

arthritis, as well as for dry itchy skin,

and supporting health and wellbeing.

With 14 years of experience, Di

continues to provide grooming

services alongside the raw food retail

area which is open from Tuesday to

Friday from 11am until 5pm and on

Saturdays from 11am until 2pm.

Real Estate with

a Difference: The

Personal Touch

A new Lincoln office of Mike Pero

has recently opened in the Vernon

Road complex. It’s the kind of office

where you can walk into any time

just to have a chat about anything

real estate. Eddie and Jolene Eagar,

the franchise owners, are excited

to become an integral part of the

close-knit Lincoln community, to

meet locals through providing a

quality service and one-on-one real

estate advice.

Eddie and Jolene have lived in the

area for over 14 years with their

two daughters. They have raised

their daughters to see the value

of hard work, dedication and

ambition while teaching them the

importance of caring. Principles that

are reiterated in their work ethic.

This husband and wife team are

passionate about the industry and

love helping people. They have

crafted an environment which is

the antithesis of a busy real estate

office, where their clients can feel

relaxed; committed to taking the

stress out of selling for their clients.

Eddie and Jolene believe that what

is best for their clients takes priority

over their commission. “We believe

in this industry that trust is your

currency. We are in the business of

building relationships. We create

wealth for our clients, our focus

always remains on maintaining

these relationships, we believe

money has to become a bi-product.

This keeps us honest.”

Before Real Estate Eddie was

employed by the Department of

Corrections and Jolene worked

in the business sector and as an

operations manager. Working

together as a team they bring

a great mix of skills. “We know

and understand the real estate

market and enjoy sharing our local

knowledge and are committed to

working hard to generate value for

our clients.”

“It’s been our dream to create a real

estate business with a difference”

said Jolene. “So many agents out

in the market place are sowing

the same seeds, walking the same

walk and talking the same talk.

Our focus is on offering our clients

a service that is well ahead of our

competitors. We really care about

people, we don’t just sell houses,

we sell homes, for us it’s personal.”

Eddie and Jolene look forward

to welcoming you into their new

office at 8 Vernon Drive, Lincoln,

CDBH staff slow on uptake

Free flu jab

target falls

well behind

• By Susan Sandys

FEWER THAN 20 per cent

of Canterbury District Health

Board staff have so far taken up

free flu vaccines.

The figure suggests the CDHB

is well behind the 80 per cent

target that the Ministry of

Health has for district health

board health care workers.

The revelation comes

following news last month the

CDHB remains among nine

in the country that does not

know which of their staff are

vaccinated against Covid-19.

Chief people officer Mary

Johnston said about 2000

staff had received their influenza

vaccination at the health

board’s free clinics. This number

did not include staff who may

have chosen to receive the

vaccine from their own GP or

pharmacy.

The CDHB employs about

11,500 people.

The roll-out of the free flu

vaccinations for staff was made

available from July 8.

Johnston said she could not

draw comparisons on the level of

uptake compared to the general

population at this early stage.

“We are in the very early

stages of the roll-out. It is far

too early in the roll-out to make

judgement or comment on the

uptake so far,” she said.

A Ministry of Health

spokesperson said about 62 per

cent of the general population

of over 65s on the National

Immunisation Register had been

vaccinated as of July 16. There

was no number for under 65s, as

many of these vaccinations were

not recorded in the register.

However, more than 1.4

million doses of the 2.4 million

available had been distributed

nationwide, representing a

higher demand than in 2019.

CDHB chief executive Peter

Bramley has urged staff to take

advantage of the free flu clinics.

“Flu is prevalent in

Australia, along with Covid-19

unfortunately, but with borders

still semi-permeable at the

moment, the reality is, it’s quite

likely to come

to New Zealand

at some stage,

so please

book your flu

vaccination

and get yourself

protected,”

Peter

Bramley

Bramley told

staff.

He also

urged staff who

had not already had both their

Covid-19 vaccinations, to book

themselves in.

“It’s really important we get

our health workforce protected,”

he said.

As of August 31, all 20 district

health boards will have to ensure

all staff working in Covid-19

designated workstreams are fully

vaccinated.

A district health boards’

spokesperson said national

guidance distributed in late

June made clear that any DHB

worker in a designated Covid-19

workstream would need to

provide proof of vaccination by

this time.

The CDHB cared for

two patients who were

confirmed as having Covid-19

in January, prior to vaccines

being available.

OUR PEOPLE – DEAN ROCKHOUSE

Building pot people one of the ways

Dean Rockhouse of

Rolleston suffers from

depression. The 47-yearold

truck driver and

craftsman has found

a way to deal with it.

He has a message for

anyone else falling

victim to the mental

illness – talk about your

feelings and be your

own strongest advocate

when it comes to

seeking help. He talks

to Susan Sandys

Tell me a little bit about

yourself

I have a family of three – two

beautiful teenage kids, one boy,

one girl, and a lovely wife. I work

five days with Mini-Tankers,

it is an onsite diesel refuelling

business. I go round to all the

subdivisions and fill earthworks

machinery, like diggers and

rollers. They can’t go to the

petrol station down the road,

that would upset a lot of people,

breaking up the roads.

So your weekdays are busy?

I start at five in the morning

and I finish about three o’clock

in the afternoon. I come home,

have a coffee, say hi to all the

animals. It’s like the Rolleston

CRAFTSMAN: Dean Rockhouse enjoys life as long as he is keeping busy.

zoo out here. We have got three

aviaries. We’ve probably got

between 20 to 30 birds – budgies,

cockatiels and ringnecks. We

have 16 guinea pigs. Oh my god,

and he won’t be able to help me,

five are in each aviary and we’ve

got one that’s running around

enjoying life. We have got two

cats and two dogs and ponds full

of goldfish.

What do you do after your

tour of the zoo?

In the afternoons, until about

six or seven o’clock, I make my

little woodworking pot people.

Millgate Woodworks Garden

Pot People – it’s only a small

business, where it’s rewarding.

I only sell local, I go to the

markets. I would probably sell

two or three a week.

That’s a huge day

I like keeping busy, it

actually keeps your mind off

these horrible thoughts and

it gives you the will to carry

on. Your mind is constantly

on something, instead of

sitting down watching TV

and becoming really down,

bored and agitated. I have

been diagnosed with severe

depression, where I have suicide

thoughts.

How did you come upon the

idea of making pot people?

I started making indoor

furniture. It got to a point where

I wasn’t selling anything. I had a

friend coming to me and saying

they needed something for their

garden, and asked if I could

make them a little man. When

you are a truck driver by day,

your mind is constantly ticking

over about what sort of design

you can actually do. That’s why

I’ve got 78 designs in pot people.

And people love them. I get very,

very busy at Christmas.

How do you make them?

I Googled imaged garden men,

and I found one and it all built

from there. I’ve just redesigned,

they are unique. I think nobody

in this country actually makes

them other than me. They are

pretty much made out of round

wood, Mitre 10 and Bunnings

sell the stuff for firewood. I

buy the pots from the garden

centre. For the arms and the

legs, I get them from sites I go to.

So instead of the timber going

into landfill, or going into a pile

where it is going to get burnt, I

like to recycle. As they say, there

is only one planet that we live on.

How long have you suffered

from depression?

Five years now.

to help deal with depression

Wednesday July 28 2021 Selwyn Times

OUR PEOPLE 13

What were your first

symptoms?

Just feeling down. Some

people are different, they are

just having a bad day. But if it’s

in you – mood swings, feeling

down, wanting to be by yourself

all the time – don’t let it build

up. I made that mistake. I let it

build up for about half a year,

where it got to the point where I

was getting suicide thoughts, and

then I went to get help. I went to

the doctor.

Was it hard for you to seek

help?

I felt ashamed. I felt like: ‘Oh

s**t, what are people going

to think of me?’ With mental

illness, you don’t want to feel

ashamed. I mean I would have

a small cry. Men cry, you feel

a lot better. It relieves a lot of

the horrible stuff. I don’t feel

ashamed anymore. I feel good. If

people want to get nasty, if they

want to talk behind your back,

they can go back and crawl under

the rock they came out from.

Was there a particular cause

for your depression?

Pressure of life, I think it

was just how people treat you,

I have grown up without a

dad. Depression runs through

my family. I don’t want to do

the same to my family and do

something stupid. It’s going to

affect them in life, I don’t want

them to go through what I am

going through.

What are some of the ways

you have dealt with your illness?

I’m not a quitter, be strong,

fight your inner demons, just

open up, get help and talk. I

found talking to someone

is good. If somebody isn’t

interested in your problems,

then they are not worth it. It’s

easier to talk to a friend, family

member, somebody who has

got depression already. I find

that a lot easier than talking to a

complete stranger, because they

don’t know you. Don’t over do

it, but do something you enjoy.

Taking up a hobby like I am

doing, it works wonders. I am

going to have depression all my

life. That is one thing that I have

to accept. I have to accept I am

going to be on my medication all

my life.

Is it a hidden illness?

It can be. If someone comes

to you, and they are quite rude

and look a little bit down, don’t

judge. Don’t judge until you have

done your homework. If you

know somebody who is feeling

down and has the symptoms

of depression, talk to them, ask

them how has their day been, or

are they okay. ‘Are you okay?’ are

the words to actually start talking

to somebody with depression.

Your mental health message

is similar to that of rugby great

John Kirwan. What do you

think of him as a role model?

He is great, because he cares.

I think, as a whole country, we

are realising what mental illness

is. I mean, years ago if you got

a tattoo, people would think of

you as Satan’s son. Tattoos now

are just a way of life. More people

are doing it, and more people are

understanding depression.

Do you have tattoos?

I have a whole arm.

How old when you got your

first tattoo?

I would have been 16. I was

young and stupid. I got a skull

with a snake going through it,

on my arm. But the tattoos now

are things that are meaningful

to you, like I have got my kids’

names on my arm.

Do you have any regrets with

any of your tattoos?

No, I don’t have any regerts!

My tattoos are things that mean

something to me.

Where did you grow up?

Upper Riccarton. My

grandparents brought me up

as their own. As a child, I was

sent to two different locations

in state care, which didn’t really

help the cause of a good life.

My grandparents were so hurt

every time they came to see me,

they decided to pull me out of

state care. They were concerned

about what sort of person I would

become, or where I would end up

at. It was awesome being brought

up by them, I see them as more

of a mum and dad than as my

grandparents.

TWENTY FULL and part-time

jobs have been created as an

agricultural group uses a $2.2

million grant to regenerate areas

Ellesmere Sustainable Agriculture

is extending the reach of

by the three years of funding,

which was allocated through the

Jobs for Nature programme.

Members are inviting fellow

Chairman Tim Chamberlain

said the past year had represented

a “quantum leap” for the

more sustainable farming practices

and improving waterway

quality.

“The funding has enabled

us to ramp up dozens of exciting

regeneration projects by

many local farmers to improve

waterways and create local employment

and local educational

opportunities along the way,”

Chamberlain said.

“We want to expand the reach

of our work, so we want to invite

any farmers who are not part of

ESAI to have a look at our website

and come along to our AGM

to find out how we can support

them.”

The funding enabled the

establishment of Project Tinaku

last year, and the recruitment of

Feeding damages leaves

IT IS easier to detect whether

some insects are present by their

foraging damage rather than

seeing the actual insect itself.

For example, cabbage tree

moth, flax notcher moth, flax

window moth and kaka-beak

leaf-miners all have tell-tale

feeding damage left by larvae of

their species. One species found

recently that I have not written

about is the ragwort leafminer

(Chromatomyia syngenesiae).

The leafminer is a small, 4mm

long fly from Europe whose

larvae feed on a variety of herbaceous

plants in the daisy family

(Compositae) but especially on

the ragworts and groundsels.

Female flies oviposit single eggs

onto leaves that develop into a

4mm larvae that graze the leaf

surface in random meandering

trails called mines, which are

lighter coloured than the leaf.

By looking closely at the mines,

larvae can sometime be seen as a

creamy to darkish grey, whereas

pupae are an oval dark blob.

As many as 15 complete

generations have been recorded

in this species.

Tobogganing on real snow captivated the youngsters at last year’s festival.

Winter-themed festival offers family fun in the city

WHILE WE may be experiencing

a very chilly winter this year, that’s

all the more reason to get the

family together and head into the

city for this year’s Winter Festival

‘Chill in the City’.

Run by the Central City

Business Association with

support from the Christchurch

City Council and many of the

city’s businesses, it follows last

year’s very successful event,

which attracted thousands to

the central city with a range of

exciting winter-themed events and

activities.

This year there will be even

more to enjoy, from ice skating,

hug a husky and Hagglund rides,

to Disney’s frozen bouncy castle,

tobogganing on real snow, and

Hillary’s Hutt VR Experience, all

taking place in and around the

City Mall area. Real-life winter

fairies will be there for the kids,

along with activities for everyone

to enjoy.

These include ice skating

starting tomorrow and running

right through the weekend, with

all other winter activities running

on Saturday and Sunday from

10am to 5pm daily.

Hagglund rides should again prove a popular attraction at this year’s event.

There is a small donation cost

for some of the activities and all

money raised is being donated to

the Christchurch City Mission.

Last year’s festival raised just

over $12,000 and the business

association hopes with the

community coming in to support

the festival, it can do more this year.

While most of ‘Chill in the

City’ activities are aimed at

family enjoyment, Saturday night

offers something a little different,

with ‘Chill in the City’ After

Dark on New Regent St starting

early evening and featuring live

entertainment, mulled wine, hot

toddies and delicious food.

•Full details of Winter

Festival ‘Chill in the City’ can

be found on the website

Southbridge scrape into shield final

• By Chris Barclay

SOUTHBRIDGE ARE a step

away from defending the

Coleman Shield after a lastminute

penalty try secured a

spine-tingling semi-final win

over a gallant Springston.

The automatic seven-pointer

enabled the Ellesmere division

1 benchmark to pip the fourthranked

play-off qualifiers 17-16,

thanks to exerting concerted

pressure as the clock wound

down at Southbridge Domain.

Referee Hayden Cook marched

under the crossbar after Southbridge

dominated a scrum on the

Springston line in the last minute,

midway between the sideline

and posts.

Springston had lost a player to

the sin-bin before the definitive

set piece.

“We were on attack for the last

3-4 minutes. There were repeated

infringements and the ref called

a penalty try, we didn’t argue,”

said Southbridge manager

Wayne Palmer.

“We got down that end and

managed to stay down there and

we got the job done. It was pretty

lucky.”

Fortunately Southbridge did

not score a regulation try off the

shove because kicker Shannon

Donald was down injured.

“He was lying down in pain,

HAPPER

he’d have been no good for kicking

a goal if he had to,” Palmer

said.

The victory margin was

Southbridge’s tightest of a season

where they have only suffered

one defeat, to Ashburton’s Southern

in the Luisetti Seed Cup

decider.

Prebbleton are tasked with

ending Southbridge’s reign at

Lincoln Domain on Saturday

after beating Darfield 28-22 in

last weekend’s other sudden

death clash.

They were also pressed hard

before advancing to the final, recovering

from a 5-0 deficit before

shading the second half.

“It was a really even game. We

managed to hold them out at the

end,” said Prebbleton head coach

Dave Kettles.

Prebbleton, who are seeking

their first Coleman Shield title

since 1974, have recent history

with Southbridge, having lost

28-20 in the final round of the

regular season on July 17 when

both sides were assured of making

the play-offs.

“They were a bit too good for

us. We need to improve on that

effort to challenge them. They’ve

been the benchmark for 4-5

seasons out here.”

Victory would allow Prebbleton

to avenge a 42-39 semi-final

defeat last season to a Southbridge

side featuring Dan Carter.

Kettles took no comfort from

the legendary All Black now

enjoying retirement.

“They’re a fantastic side

anyway, they don’t need a lot of

help,” he said.

Library membership

increasing

Selwyn Libraries celebrates growth in

memberships and loans

More than 10,000 new members have signed up to Selwyn Libraries in the past year.

Both memberships and loans grew, with library members increasing to over 28,000 people, an

increase of 39%, compared to around 17,000 in the previous year.

Digital and physical loans were also up by 27.5% over the same period, with over 500,000 issues.

Manager Arts, Culture and Lifelong Learning, Nicki Moen attributes the result to providing welcoming

spaces, inclusive programming and a growing focus on digital content.

“We’ve focused on being good hosts regardless of whether our members are visiting us online or

within our spaces,” says Nicki.

“It’s nice to see more people using our libraries, which is heartening considering the Covid-19

lockdown and the associated restrictions it placed on our service. It really confirms the importance

of libraries as places to come together as a community. Our diverse and talented team provide a

wonderful service.”

Despite the lockdown, the Libraries team ran over 2,500 programmes at its four libraries and in

outlying communities via the Edge Connector Vehicle.

“The result also reflects our commitment to reaching all corners of our district and bringing

newcomers into our spaces. We’re also very keen to welcome people back that haven’t visited us in

a while. We’re currently working to remove some historic fines to make this easier too,” says Nicki.

Selwyn Libraries are located in Rolleston, Leeston, Lincoln and Darfield. Rolleston Library will close

in November this year to coincide with the opening of Te Ara Ātea on Tennyson Street—which will

house the new library as part of its services.

To become a Selwyn Libraries member or talk about clearing historic fines, visit selwynlibraries.govt.nz

or pop in to your local library.

Support to help young people follow their dreams

Support is available once again for Selwyn young people to achieve in higher education.

Applications are open for the Council’s annual Tertiary Education Scholarships, supporting Selwyn

young people who are leaving school and heading into higher education or training next year.

Scholarships of up to $3000 provide payment towards fees, and costs associated with buying books

and equipment required for their study or training.

The scholarships are available for year 12 and 13 students who live and study in Selwyn and are

planning to undertake full-time post-secondary school education or training at a recognised New

Zealand university, polytechnic or training institution next year.

Applications are encouraged from students who have achieved outstanding success in academic,

sports, cultural, arts, social responsibility or other areas, either at school or in their community. Those

who have overcome barriers or hardships to achieve are encouraged to apply.

Applications are open until the end of September.

For the first time this year, young people will have the option to make a video submission talking about

their passion and goals.

To find out more about the scholarships, including application forms, students can visit

selwyn.govt.nz/tertiaryscholarships.

Selwyn launches Flood

Relief Fund

Selwyn residents who suffered hardship or damage to their

property during the recent floods can apply to the Council for

financial support.

The Council has opened the Mayoral Relief Fund for Selwyn

residents affected by recent flooding who have not been able to

access other support such as insurance or government funding.

A funds allocation panel, including Mayor Sam Broughton and

Selwyn Recovery Manager Al Lawn, will assess new applications

and allocate funding through August. The fund will close once the

total has been allocated.

Mayor Sam Broughton says the fund is a further way for the Council

to help those affected by the flooding.

“Our Civil Defence teams and local volunteers did a fantastic job of

looking after people during the flooding and afterwards. We have

also seen government and other agencies providing support. This

fund is limited but will support those who have suffered hardship."

The $4 million Canterbury Flood Relief Fund has also opened to

support farmers through the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI). If

you believe you are eligible, please apply.

For more information, criteria and application forms, visit

selwyn.govt.nz/floodrelief or email mayoral.relief.fund@selwyn.govt.nz.

Sharing space on shared paths

You may have noticed more of these signs popping up on certain

paths around the district. This sign shows that the path is a

‘shared path’.

A shared path is a path that can be used by pedestrians, cyclists,

mobility devices and wheeled recreational devices (such as

skateboards and scooters).

Shared paths are wider than

a standard footpath to safely

accommodate more user

types. Next time you are

using a shared path please be

considerate of others using the

path. It is important that you

look out for others, slow down,

and pass with care.

Cyclists should use their bell

to let others know that they

are approaching and all users

should keep left unless passing,

to give other users space.

Small Business Workshop

Fraud can take many forms and often comes from the most

unsuspected sources. While New Zealand often performs highly in

international corruption ratings, our small businesses and not-for-profits

are not immune to fraudulent activity and the disruption this can cause.

The final of three sessions with Sidekick Selwyn Accountants and

Business Advisors are designed to empower you with tips and tricks to

save time and money, facilitate risk reduction and highlight the benefits

of surrounding yourself with a good team.

Registration is essential at selwyn.govt.nz/events.

Continuing our occasional series putting the spot light on some of our community halls and the great

service they provide, this week with Darfield Recreation and Community Centre.

Darfield Recreation and Community Centre is becoming something of a star after an increase in people

using the hall this year, including a huge Matariki event.

The popular hall decorated in art from surrounding schools and preschools set the scene for Two Rivers

Trust’s third Matariki in Malvern event at the end of June with 500 people enjoying kapa haka, a Matariki

Macarena, a hāngi and hands-on activity stations.

Organisers Kelly Maude and Kay Kala said the cost of hiring the centre was affordable and they were

super proud of how the event went, saying it was the best of the three Matariki events they’ve had.

“It was a fantastic turn out from a very supportive community.”

Kay said the kitchen space at the centre worked well for the large event and there was enough room for

the four large groups of performers to prepare before

they went on stage. She said the layout of the stage

helped make the night run smoothly and there was an

easy set up and pack down.

The Matariki event was the latest in a series of new

events, including many from the Council, driven by a

community survey last year, where over 200 people

gave feedback on what they wanted to see at the hall.

Events have caused an increase in usage of the

centre by community members for everything from

Zumba classes to line dancing, bowls, business

meetings and craft days.

Fleur Earl, one of two Malvern-wide facilities

caretakers says the feedback she received around

these events was really positive.

“People said it’s nice that we can just go down to our

local hall to these events. It’s like having a bit of your

own open day at your local hall, getting to know

where your local hall is and the different spaces it

has to offer.”

Former Selwyn player

saving goals in the US

• By Coen Lammers

BAILEY JORDAN is

taking stock after a

rollercoaster first season

in college football in the

United States.

The former Selwyn United

goalkeeper (right) has

just finished his first eventful

semester at Northwest

College in Wyoming,

dealing with Covid disruptions,

extreme hot and cold

weather, a new sports scene

and team-mates from all

corners of the globe.

The 18-year-old was

offered a scholarship at

the junior US college after

catching the eye in 2019 at

the National U17 Tournament

with Selwyn after

which he was selected to

attend a United Kingdom

Football Academy.

“The coach of that

invitational team has some

connections in the States

and recommended me

to a coach at Northwest,”

says Jordan, who suddenly

found himself in the wild

west of Wyoming at the

start of a bitter winter.

“You could say that I

wasn’t really prepared

because when walked to

the gym on my second day,

I was only wearing shorts

and jandals but stepped

into snow that was knee

deep, so I quickly had to do

some shopping for better

footwear,” laughs Bailey.

Jordan was shocked to

find himself in a squad

with four goalkeepers, including

an academy player

from Chile’s top club,

but after the two others

departed for greener pastures,

Bailey was suddenly

the back-up to the best

goalkeeper in the league.

“This guy was a six foot

four and the best player I

have ever come across so

I learned a lot from him,”

says Bailey who was given

a few opportunities in

the first team, including a

match against the top team

in the conference that also

includes teams from Nebraska

and Colorado.

“Usually a freshman

does not get any game time

in the first year and the

game was against Casper

who were ranked No 6 in

the States. We only lost

2-0 so was pretty stoked,”

says Bailey who hopes to

claim the No 1 jersey when

he returns after his ‘summer’

holiday back in New

Zealand.

Much of this will depend

on which players the college

will recruit for their

squad which last year was

mostly made up of overseas

students.

Bailey hopes a good

season with Northwest

will then create a pathway

into a strong senior college

as well as professional opportunities

and possibly a

crack at the New Zealand

squad for the next under

20 World Cup.

“I’m just taking it one

day at the time, but training

every day in a professional

environment with

so many good players is

really helping me to grow

my game,” says Bailey who

is heading back to the stifling

heat of the American

north-west in August.

Sweet 16th victory

for Pay Me Visa

• By Jonny Turner

IT’S NOT just his 16 wins that makes Pay

Me Visa an exceptional horse.

The Andrew Stuart trained veteran continued

his remarkable career and notched

his sweet 16th victory when bursting home

from three deep on the pegs at Addington

on Sunday.

Far from a typical racehorse, Pay Me

Visa is also a family pet and arguably

New Zealand’s most profitable galloping

pacemaker.

And because of that, he wasn’t exactly

the spearhead of Stuart’s team on Sunday.

“I only took him and Martin John in as

a mate for the maiden I had in (Get Outta

Town),” the trainer said.

“I thought he would be hard to beat but

he ended up being held up.”

“I thought it might have been impossible

for Pay Me Visa from the draw (12) but he

got a good run.”

Pay Me Visa shows no signs of slowing

down as his ten-year-old birth date approaches,

having brought up his third win

for the season on Sunday.

Though his retirement has already been

FORMER TOP New Zealand driver

Dexter Dunn starred at the Meadowlands

in the United States, with his fourth haul

of seven race wins on the one night.

On Friday the 31-year-old took out more

than half the 13-race

programme. It’s the

third time he has won

seven races on the

same card at the Big

M. He also won seven

races at Forbury Park

in May 2015.

“I knew I had some

chances,” Dunn told

the US Trotting Association,

“They just worked out and got

nice trips. I just think I had the right stock

on the right night.”

It was the second time in six weeks that

planned out, Pay Me Visa still has plenty

of racing in front of him.

“He is fully sound, there is nothing

wrong with him at all,” Stuart said.

“He gets his joints looked at now and

then but then he’s good to go.

“He has got a home here for life, he is the

family pet and everyone loves him.

“But he won’t be retiring for a while yet.

“He is our galloping pacemaker, we use

him to teach the babies, he’s a great GP.

“There wouldn’t be a better one than

him in the country, I wouldn’t think.”

Pay Me Visa came to Stuart’s stable as a

yearling and has raced and won in every

season since beginning his career as a

three-year-old.

The pacer was originally raced by Ross

Dougherty and Dave Kennedy but is now

leased by his trainer.

Pay Me Visa helped driver Robbie Close

continue his outstanding season in the

sulky.

Their victory was the reinsman’s 64th

win this term, extending his new personal

best following the 51 wins he notched last

season.

he’s achieved the feat and the third overall

at the Meadowlands. The first was in January

2020, the second on June 18 this year.

“It’s awesome for sure,” he said, “I’m

driving for the top trainers, driving good

horses. It makes my job easy.”

The winning trainers were ex-pat Kiwis

Nifty Norman (2), Chris Ryder (1) as well

as Nancy Takter (2) and Tony Alagna (2).

Dunn now has 114 at the Big M in New

Jersey this year, 31 more than his closest

rival Yannick Gingras.

His total is 254 wins for the year, which

is ninth overall, with earnings now exceeding

$4m ($4,097,749).

That puts him third behind Tim Tetrick

($4,895,579) and Gingras ($4,240,245).

Only two drivers have had eight winners

on a card at the Big M. They were Mike

Lachance (1995) and Brett Miller (2016).

BOARDING SCHOOL

The experience of a lifetime

Sammy Hood is a keen advocate of all

that boarding has to offer.

She’s been boarding at St Margaret’s

College since she started in Year 9. Now

in Year 13, Sammy is the school’s Head of

Community Relations.

“I was buzzing with excitement to start

boarding at SMC. It was a whole new

experience but it didn’t take me long to

get used to the boarding life. The friendly

and compassionate staff definitely made

the transition from home in Ashburton to

boarding much easier. They helped us all

adjust to the new rules and to living with

other girls.

“Living in the dorms during my first

two years made it very easy to form

new friendships and these connections

definitely helped when I did feel home

sick.”

The boarding community is at the

heart of St Margaret’s and the culture is

closely aligned with the school’s vision

of a holistic education, embracing the

spiritual and emotional wellbeing of the

girls, as well as their academic growth

and their development in sport and the

arts.

The three boarding houses are arranged

in year groups and structured to the

specific needs of each developmental

stage. In Julius House (Years 7-10) the

environment is structured and nurturing

for the girls to make the transition into

boarding. Kilburn House (Years 11-12)

encourages the girls to begin personally

integrating these skills. Cranmer House

(Year 13) allows for more freedom to

help them develop life skills and become

driven, self-managed young women, all

in a monitored setting. These senior girls

thrive as they become the leaders of the

boarding school and the ‘older sisters’ of

the younger girls.

Sammy says boarding at SMC has

helped her to become more independent.

“As you progress through the year

levels, your independence grows. The

connections and relationships you

build in the SMC boarding community,

whether it be girls in your year group or

the staff, are all valuable and also help you

grow as a person. The academic support

and pastoral care provided by staff is

exceptional. It helps the girls to strive to

their full potential. At the same time, staff

are always keeping a close eye on each

girl’s wellbeing.

“I’ve built strong friendships that will

last a lifetime, and it’s a lot of fun! You get

to meet a diverse range of people from all

backgrounds and everyone is treated as

equals.”

GARDENING

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Tips to establish your container plants

EVEN IN THE depths of winter,

it’s not too early to be thinking

about your summer garden, or

getting a burst of colour in pots or

containers.

A bit of quick colour can

do wonders, so fill bowls with

flowering plants like petunias,

geraniums or lobellias.

Container plants are popular

but when it comes to potting

mix, confusion reigns. Is potting

mix really necessary? Won’t soil

do the same job?

And is it true that potting mix

can be dangerous to handle?

Here are some answers to these

common questions:

Why should I use a quality

potting mix?

A quality potting mix provides

the best growing medium for

container plants.

Quality potting mixes, unlike

soil, maintain a proper balance

between holding moisture and

draining well.

This means that plant roots

can have access to sufficient

water without the risk of

drowning or dying from lack of

oxygen.

Soil, because its texture varies

so greatly, isn’t always suitable

to use in pots. Potting mixes are

based on organic materials and

don’t contain any soil.

Potting mixes can be

specifically formulated for special

purposes and situations.

This means you can provide

plants with the most suitable

conditions for healthy growth.

Find mixes that are specially

blended for cacti and succulents,

bulbs, orchids, African violets

and cyclamens and hanging

baskets, as well as the more

general-purpose mixes.

home.

Tips for re-potting

Start by watering thoroughly.

Invert the pot and carefully

remove the plant. Don’t pull it

by the stem. Sometimes it helps

to roll the pot on its side and

squeeze gently to loosen the

roots.

In extreme cases it may be

necessary to break the old pot

or cut it away from the root ball.

Remove some of the old potting

mix and check the roots for

damage or disease. Trim these

back to a healthy section.

Re-pot into (preferably) a

slightly larger pot. Firm into

place but don’t press too hard or

you’ll risk damaging the roots.

Leave at least 2cm of space at

the top of the mix for watering.

Water thoroughly.

Looking for

some backyard

inspiration?

We’ve got the scoop.

Speak to us for quality landscaping supplies,

expert advice and superior service.

This settles the mix into place

and removes air pockets. A few

weeks later, feed with a fertiliser

that suits container plants.

Don’t use dry, granular

fertilisers – such as rose food –

because there’s too great a risk of

burning roots. Instead stick to

controlled release or liquid plant

foods.

Is potting mix dangerous?

Like soil and organic matter,

potting mixes may carry any

one of a range of beneficial or

harmful bacteria.

To avoid problems it’s best to

follow some simple precautions

when handling any of these

materials.

Keep potting mix moist, avoid

breathing dust from potting

mix, wear gloves and, most

importantly, wash your hands

with soap and water when you’ve

finished potting, or working with

soil or organic matter.

Water wise

When watering potted plants,

always check that the water can

drain freely from the pot.

Don’t leave water sitting in a

saucer.

If the saucer must stay beneath

the pot at all times think about

putting a layer of gravel in its

base so that the plant sits well

above the water.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

Bitten by the bike bug

Jimmy’s eyes light up and his voice

becomes animated as he talks about his

motorcycle collection. From a young age,

he dreamed of owning a Harley-Davidson.

However, it took until his thirties before he

bought that first bike. It was a new 1200cc

Harley-Davidson Sportster. From that day

forward, Jimmy’s had the bike bug, and

his collection of motorcycles has grown.

He now has an assortment of six Victory

motorcycles and one Indian motorcycle.

All are immaculately groomed, stored with

care beneath protective wraps under the

ever-watchful eye of their proud owner.

Loving the brand and story, Jimmy

started collecting Victorys for their

appearances and easy maintenance.

Victorys are well built and provide a

smooth ride with Jimmy enthusing,

“Everything about Victory rates ‘10 out

of 10’, and I would pick a Victory over a

Harley anytime. So you can say I am a

victory convert.”

Polaris produced Victorys from 1998

until 2017, intending to compete against

Harley-Davidson. However, as they are

no longer in production, Jimmy’s hoping

his investment may be worth something

but states, “I’m quite happy just looking

at them. It’s a private collection for my

enjoyment, and I don’t show them.”

Choosing a favourite bike isn’t easy

for Jimmy, but he usually rides his 2007

Hammer S Sport due to the comfort and

how it handles around town and on longer

rides. He also has a Victory Magnum for

longer journeys for the ultimate comfort

with lots of power and “all the bells and

whistles”, including heated handgrips,

Bluetooth and a high-performance sound

system. With a grin, Jimmy declares, “It’s a

car on two wheels with freedom.”

Jimmy’s collection isn’t complete

without one particular motorcycle. His

most collectible bike is a 2008 Victory

Jackpot Limited Edition designed by Cory

Ness with the edition number and his

signature imprinted. Cory is the son of the

legendary Arlen Ness, known in the bike

world as the “king of customised bikes”.

Jimmy only knows of two 2008 Cory Ness

Jackpots in New Zealand. With a unique

paint job and specialised components, it is

a real eye-catcher in iridescent purple and

orange.

After seeing the joy this collection of

motorcycles brings to Jimmy, you can

only imagine this won’t be the end of this

Rolleston resident’s acquisitions.

nor am I a big fan of television

advertisements.

With a combination of those

two factors it’s a wonder then that

I spotted the clever advertisement

for Hyundai’s new sport utility

vehicle – the Palisade.

The advertisement goes

something like this – a group of

musicians playing instruments

slowly climb into the Palisade

demonstrating how spacious

it is on the inside. It’s a simple

message that illustrates perfectly

the capability of the Palisade, it is

a big vehicle – seven or eight seats

– all with armchair-like comfort.

Hyundai has made no secret

of its target market for Palisade,

it’s largely destined for theUnited

States where I would expect it

to sell very well. Downunder,

well that’s a different story, the

Palisade will only appeal to a

small number of buyers, those

who like big and are comfortable

driving something that stretches

to almost 5m and weighs over

two-tonne.

In New Zealand the Palisade

comes in five variants. If you

want eight seats then you have no

choice but to purchase the Elite,

it comes with either a 3.6-litre

petrol-powered V6 driving

through the front wheels, or an

all-wheel-drive model powered

by a 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel

engine. The Elite lists at $99,990

and $106,990respectively.

If you are satisfied with seven

seats, then Limited specification

is the model for you, the same

engine options are available and

you have got an extra choice of

nappa leather. The Limited V6

sits at $107,990, while the diesel

is priced at $114,990 (nappa adds

$5k). The evaluation car was the

latter, sans nappa.

It must be remembered both

engines are similar to those that

power one of Hyundai’s bestselling

models, the Santa Fe, and

whereas I expected the weight of

the Palisade to burden the diesel,

I’m happy to report that that is far

from the case. That is one of the

reasons why I’ve been so smitten

with the big four-potter over the

years, it’s largely a continuation

of the R-Series diesel that I have

a lot of affection for. It is strong,

smooth and silent and powers the

big Palisade with gusto.

Saying that, the Palisade is not

a vehicle that you should expect

to do things quickly, while it does

cover distance capably, it does so

with relaxed motion, it performs

in a subdued manner, and that

is the measure of a good vehicle,

something that carries out its

purpose without strain or fuss.

Hyundai rate the turbocharged

oil burner with 147kW and

HIGH COMFORT: The Palisade comes with the choice of

seven or eight seats.

HYUNDAI PALISADE LIMITED: Sport utility vehicle with large car luxury.

440Nm, both outputs realised

very low in the rev band (3800

and 1750rpm). It feels strong

beneath the accelerator, powerful

enough to surge to 100km/h in

9.5sec and will lunge through a

highway overtake in 6sec (80-

120km/h).

The engine is also rated with

a 7.3-litre per 100km combined

cycle fuel usage average. That’s

a bold claim and one that I

couldn’t replicate, however, my

evaluation average of 8.8l/100km

wasn’t that far distant and was

helped by an amazing 6.3l/100km

figure showing instantaneously at

100km/h, the engine very relaxed

turning over at just 1600rpm.

Both engines drive through a

fabulous eight-speed automatic

transmission. There’s a paddle

shift mechanism should the

driver so desire, but I far

preferred just selecting the drive

button and letting the engine

and gearbox do its own thing,

something that delivers smooth

shifts through a seemingly

endless supply of ratios.

The push-button gear selection

process is part of an intuitive yet

comprehensive array of controls

the driver has command over,

the all-wheel-drive Palisade has

genuine off-the-seal capability, it

has 203mm of ground clearance

and the drive to all corners will

get you in an out of very sticky

situations. My first thought was

how capable it would be on the

skifield access road, although

• Price – Hyundai Palisade

Limited, $114,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4980mm; width, 1975mm;

height, 1750mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2199cc, 147kW, 440Nm,

eight-speed automatic

• Performance – 0-100km/h,

9.5sec

• Fuel usage – 7.3l/100km

finding a spot in a crowded car

park may be a bit more of a

challenge.

Mid-winter meant it was

another wet weekend highway

evaluation, however, the Palisade

imparts a well-connected feeling

on drenched roads.

That has a lot to do with the

way the four-wheel-drive system

works. While there are a host

of driver-selectable individual

terrain control modes, in

standard drive mode power will

be distributed proportionally

between front and rear, and

individual wheels depending on

how grip is best determined.

On that subject, huge

Bridgestone Dueler sport

specification tyres (245/50 x 20in)

offer prodigious grip in the first

instance, they are both quiet and

informative, just what you want

in a large luxury car.

The driveline systems work

seamlessly and are part of an

extensive safety network both

passive and active. It’s not only

the safety features that make

the Palisade attractive, it’s got

everything on-board that will

satisfy all occupants. A multitude

of clever devices provide

individual settings between front

and rear, all designed so that each

occupant can have his/her own

freedom.

If you don’t need the rear row

of seats upright, they fold down

to provide a cavernous load area.

There’s no shortage of choice in

New Zealand’s seven-seat SUV

market. Where the Palisade has

a point of difference is that it is

not utility-based, it doesn’t have a

body over ladder chassis design,

instead the fully monocoque

structure has a platform

engineered for one purpose

from the ground up and that is

occupant comfort. Stability and

capability are additional benefits

that are a by-product of that type

of design.

That being the case, the

Palisade will conquer sales

with its all-round functionality

and, dare I say it, its luxury

features blending with all-road

capability sets it apart from the

competition.

Not forgetting that if you don’t

need four-wheel-drive and want

the benefit of that extra seat,

the Palisade is a people-mover

that will transport those from

all walks of life, including the

orchestra.

What to watch for when

the mode of sale changes

Buying a property is rarely straightforward,

which is no surprise given that it’s the

biggest financial commitment most people

ever make. When you combine big sums of

money and a considerable level of emotional

investment, even the simplest transaction

can be stressful. We hear a lot about the need

for buyers to do their homework, but there

are plenty of reasons for sellers to be careful

too.

If you’re selling a property with a real estate

agent, you must sign an agency agreement

that sets out all the terms and conditions

of your contract with them, including how

much commission they will earn from the

sale and how the property will be marketed.

That’s why it’s so important to get legal advice

before you sign an agency agreement. If it’s a

standard agreement, you usually retain the

right to sell the property privately but it’s a

good idea to check this. If you have signed

an agreement with an agency but decide for

whatever reason to opt for a DIY private

sale, you should double and triple-check

whether the agency agreement requires you

to pay commission to the real estate agent or

agency.

Most agencies use the Real Estate Authority

(REA) standard clauses in agency

agreements, which set out certain terms

and conditions for the contract and the

payment of commission. According to the

standard clauses, commission is payable if

the property is sold within the active term

of the agreement (normally 90 days) or if it

is sold privately within six months after the

end of the term to a buyer that the agent had

earlier introduced to the property. In other

words, if the buyer visits an open home run

by the real estate agent, and then enters into a

private sale with the seller within six months

after the end of the agreement, the seller is

still obliged to pay commission to the agent.

This can vary depending on whether it is

a sole or general agreement – talk to your

lawyer before you sign up.

Both sole agency agreements and general

agency agreements provide for commission

payments after the agreed period ends. If a

seller enters into a sale within six months of

the agency agreement ending with a buyer

who was introduced by the real estate agent

(or the agent facilitated the sale), then the

seller must pay the agent commission just as

they would have done when the agreement

was still current. So, if the agent brings a

potential buyer to a property in March, the

agency agreement expires in April, and the

seller and purchaser enter into a private

sale agreement in May, the seller will have

to pay the agent commission. The sale must

become unconditional (which is when all

the conditions of the sale and purchase

agreement have been met), but it doesn’t

matter whether it goes unconditional during

or after the agency period, or during or after

the six months following expiry, so long as

the sale and purchase agreement is entered

into within those timeframes. So, before you

sign an agency agreement, ask the agency

if it uses standard REA clauses. If it doesn’t

you may be exposed to more complicated

commission risks and you should seek legal

advice.

Generally, any issues arising from the agency

agreement/arrangements between the seller

and the real estate agent won’t have a direct

effect on the separate sale and purchase

agreement between the seller and the buyer.

However, the wrangling involved may create

headaches or delays that you as a buyer

wouldn’t want to be troubled with.

If you do decide that you’re really keen on a

property in this situation, seek legal advice

before getting involved (and especially

before signing anything). Remember too

that the REA can help you with questions

and complaints about sales involving

licensed real estate agents, but it’s unable to

step in if you have a problem with a private

and unlicensed seller.

selling property, check out settled.govt.nz.

Can I offer on more than

one property at a time?

Some people fall in love at first sight

when they’re looking to buy a property,

but many like to keep their options until

the last minute. This is understandable,

because it can be scary signing up to such

a major financial commitment if you think

something better might come along. But

it can also be hard to know what to do if

you’re not sure if your offer on a property

will be accepted and you are worried about

2

[Edition datE]

missing out on the other ones on your

wishlist.

“Every time you make an offer on a

property you are saying you are committed

to buying it, subject to whatever conditions

you include in the offer,” says the Real Estate

Authority (REA). “These conditions might

be things like getting a satisfactory property

inspection, or confirming insurance, or

having finance approved. It would be

extremely unusual to add ‘we want the

right to change our minds in case we see a

property that we like more’.”

Remember that a sale and purchase

agreement – the document that you and the

seller sign that lays out all the particulars

of the property and any chattels being sold

with it, the price you are prepared to pay

and the date that it will take place – is a

legally binding contract.

“Whether you can make offers on other

properties will depend on how your

conditions are written. This is why it’s

crucial to get legal advice before making

the offer, which becomes legally binding

as soon as it’s accepted. If you offer on a

property while you’re waiting to hear back

on another one, you could end up with two

accepted offers and two legally binding

contracts.”

The REA says a seller doesn’t have to

respond to your offer within a certain time

frame unless there is a strict deadline, such

as in a tender or deadline sale. If you are

making an offer on a property that is for

sale by negotiation or by advertised price,

and you think you might want to keep your

options open, talk to your lawyer about

adding an expiry time to it.

Alternatively, if the deadline for offers has

not passed and you have a change of heart,

you could consider asking the agent about

withdrawing your offer. In this situation we

recommend you have the agent confirm in

writing that your offer has been withdrawn.

“Keep in mind too that making a

conditional offer on a property, such

as having finance approved, will not

necessarily provide you with a ‘get out of jail

free card’ if you subsequently decide you

don’t want to go through with the purchase.

In this situation you could be required to

prove you weren’t able to get finance. The

better option is simply to arrange for your

offer to be withdrawn promptly.”

Buying a property is a

complex process whether

you’re doing it for the first

time or not

Buying a property is a complex process

whether you’re doing it for the first time

or not – but it’s important to take every

decision seriously. If you’re finding it hard

to keep going on your property search, or

to commit to making an offer, it might be

helpful to remind yourself about why you

want to buy a home and to identify your

must-haves. Writing these things down can

help keep you on track and make it easier to

stay focused.

What do you have to tell potential

buyers when selling your house?

When you’ve lived in a property for a

while it’s easy to forget some of its quirks.

You might be used to the fact that the

front gate doesn’t shut properly, or that

the bathroom windows need fixing. Any

potential buyers will be able to spot issues

like this when they inspect the property –

and can choose to fix them if they purchase

it. But it’s a lot harder for them to identify

other things you might have forgotten

about, like the fact that you didn’t bother

getting the appropriate consents from the

council when you built the deck 25 years

ago.

You might think the deck is fine, but you

need to front up about the consent issue,

not least because it’s the decent thing to do.

“When you’re selling a property you are

legally obliged to share all the relevant

information about it,” says the Real Estate

Agents Authority (REAA).

“If work has been done on the property

during your ownership, either by you or

someone else, the standard terms of the

sale and purchase agreement require the

seller to warrant that any legally required

permits or consents were obtained. If you

knowingly fail to disclose unconsented

works, you are in breach of contract. This

means there is a risk that the sale could fall

over or that you could run into problems

prior to settlement. Even worse, the buyer

could take you to court for breach of

warranty.”

Your first step should be to discuss the

issue with your licensed real estate agent

and your lawyer, Lampen-Smith says. They

are likely to advise that you are better off to

disclose anything unconsented, or to strike

out the applicable vendor warranties clause

in the sale and purchase agreement.

“Once the real estate agent is aware of the

situation, they are bound by their Code of

Conduct to disclose it to any prospective

buyers. If you tell them about the deck or

any other issues to do with the property,

but ask them not to tell anyone, they are

required to stop working for you.”

Similar disclosure issues can arise over

more sensitive matters. Some sellers worry

about whether or not to tell an agent or

prospective buyers about an issue that

doesn’t relate to the physical state of the

property – such as it being the scene of a

murder, suicide or violent crime.

Here, deciding what to disclose is less

straightforward, Lampen-Smith says.

“The REAA advises agents to take a

cautious approach and to consider each

situation on its facts, while recognising the

individual circumstances.”

The High Court has said that a more

recent event, especially one that might

have gained some notoriety in the local

neighbourhood, may have more bearing on

a prospective buyer’s view of the property

than a historic one. The location of the

event (whether it took place in the grounds

of the property or inside the house) and

whether the property has been lived in since

it happened, as well as the likely reaction

of potential buyers, should also be taken

into account. The death of someone from

natural causes at the property does not

need to be disclosed, as this is considered

an everyday occurrence.

“If you are in this situation as a seller, it’s

best to discuss what to do with your real

estate agent.”

“They cannot tell prospective buyers

without your consent – and if they decide

that a sensitive issue should be disclosed

but you don’t agree, then they must cease

to act for you.”

Whatever the situation, whether it’s

unconsented work or a tragic event, honesty

is the best policy. Talk to your agent about

how the disclosure will be handled. There

is no need to advertise the information

or tell everyone who wanders along to an

open home, but potential buyers who have

indicated an interest in making an offer

must be told.

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

Homes with Absolute

Assurance

Building a new home or even a second

home can be an overwhelming process.

Selwyn is experiencing extraordinary

growth in the housing sector, and

new builds are flourishing. However,

deciding which company to trust with

your hard-earned dollars can be a

stressful and difficult decision.

Absolute Homes, which began in

2020, is a Selwyn-based building

company that prides itself on assuring

customers they will deliver a trustworthy

and dependable quality service in design

and build from start to finish. Hands-on

owner and director Chris Cawthray is a

master builder with close to 30 years of

experience and has an extensive range of

skills in design project management and

full build contracts, including land and

house packages. Absolute Homes has a

focus on the Selwyn market and is keen

to support other local businesses.

After having a commercial

construction business, Chris realised

this was not where his passion lay. Chris

loves helping people, and he states,

“With first home buyers, there is so

much gratitude and buzz about building

a first home.” Chris’s wife Ange takes

care of the business administration and

marketing for the growing business. As

a smaller family-orientated company

Absolute Homes can offer a free service

to work with the architect to personalise

and customise plans to meet individual

needs. All sub-contractors are Licenced

Building Practitioners to ensure quality

and commitment. By building solid

relationships with their clients, Absolute

Homes enables the owner to be more

involved and put their own touch on

their homes. As Chris states, “With low

overheads, the client can get more bang

for their buck.”

Due to the current market, Absolute

Homes explains clients should be aware

of several important aspects. At this

time, the consent process may take 50-60

days. However, as Absolute Homes is

a professional partner with the Selwyn

District Council, this process has been

significantly streamlined to 10-20 days.

While there are current supply issues

for building materials, planning is

critical, and building timeframes may be

extended.

Absolute Homes is always there to

advise clients and is ready with solutions

and answers. Chris and Ange are both

down-to-earth people who exhibit

good-old-fashioned values and who do

what they say. Absolute Homes realise

customers invest a large amount of

money, so do not take them for granted.

Chris and Ange have a passion for

building and helping people into their

own homes and appreciate the process

and journey they are on with their

customers.
