Demand for sections

sees prices skyrocket

• By Susan Sandys

LACK OF LAND and high demand is

continuing to see section prices soar in

the district.

The latest CoreLogic House Price Index

shows the district’s average residential

property prices have risen almost 10

per cent in three months, compared to

just 5.6 per cent in Christchurch and 4.8

per cent nationwide.

However, real estate agents say the

main rise has been in section prices,

which have in many cases doubled

since prior to last year’s Covid lockdown.

Chris Jones of

Bayleys Realty

Group Selwyn said

an 800 sq m section

at Lincoln that would

have sold in the high

$200,000s in March

last year, was now

selling for more than

Chris Jones

$500,000.

Land was running out but more

was set to come on stream as the

district council considered zone

change applications from developers.

In the Lincoln, Prebbleton and

Rolleston areas alone, there were

potentially thousands of new sections to

THERE’S generally a couple

of ways to take the risk word

out of youth – get them

into jobs or playing sport.

Preferably both.

Police are trying that

philosophy on a group of atrisk

youths from Rolleston,

launching a programme to

give them a taste of the construction

industry (page 5).

Said Sergeant Royden

van Dyk: “If you can use a

PlayStation, you can operate

a digger and you can get paid

for it as well.

“One of them might be the

next CEO of a construction

company in years to come,

the opportunities are

endless,” van Dyk said.

That sounds a far better

future than ending up in jail.

As the district population

swells, so will social

problems. The police

initiative should be

applauded.

MAYOR SAM Broughton is

not supporting a call for Local

Government minister Nanaia

Mahuta to resign over the Three

Waters reforms.

While the

district council

will not agree

to transfer its

water assets to

a new Government

entity,

without full engagement

with

ratepayers, it is

not backing five

Christchurch

councillors who want Mahuta to

resign.

“She is thinking about the

national picture and the case for

change on that scale,” Broughton

said.

Nevertheless, the district

council has reiterated its calls to

pause the Three Waters reforms

as it formally responds to the

minister.

District councillors fear the

reforms will be made mandatory,

however, are taking Government’s

word that they will be

optional.

“Our council have committed

to formally consult with our

communities before making a

decision to stay in or out. Any

decision we make will be in the

best interests of Selwyn and not

influenced by the decisions of

other councils,” Broughton

said.

Informal feedback with the

community had indicated

ratepayers were concerned about

losing a local say in the running

of their assets.

The call to pause the reforms

was first proposed by the

Canterbury Mayoral Forum, of

which Broughton is chairman.

He said the case for change

had not been proven.

In its response to the reforms,

the district council has asked the

Government for more information

to help it fully understand

the issues, and for time to

consult.

Councillor Grant Miller said

the Department of internal

Affairs would now collate

councils’ responses nationwide,

and present the final model for

them to either opt in or out.

“There has been increasing

concern that the reforms may be

made mandatory, Government

from the outset has repeatedly

stated the reforms will be

optional and presently there has

been no change to this position,

although Minister Mahuta

has made strong statements

in Parliament that the case

for change is proven and

compelling,” Miller said.

Bird’s nest

cause of

engine fire at

petrol station

• By Susan Sandys

THE ENGINE of a John Deere

tractor burst into flames at

Kirwee Challenge petrol station

on Friday.

Kirwee Volunteer Fire Brigade

chief Stuart Jones said a bird’s

nest under the bonnet ignited

after the driver, a Kirwee farmer,

drove onto the forecourt to refuel,

around lunchtime.

“Any fire on a forecourt is

dangerous,” he said.

However, thanks to the

quick actions of staff at the

petrol station dousing it with

fire extinguisher and calling

emergency services, it was

extinguished.

He reminded farmers to

check the engine bays of farm

machinery regularly, as birds

could build a nest there in just

half a day.

On Sunday, the brigade was

called to a grass fire at West

Melton, backed up by brigades

from Rolleston, Burnham and

Darfield Rural.

The fire spread across a

paddock into a hedgeline of trees.

Firefighters were at the scene for

about two hours.

“That won’t necessarily bring

prices down, but may slow down

the increase in prices,” he said.

As well as a shortage of sections,

there was high demand. This was

coming from more people moving

into Canterbury from the North

Island, Kiwis returning home from

overseas choosing to live here, and

people wanting to upsize from their

smaller homes in Christchurch.

at-risk youth into construction

They took about 10 young

people from the Rolleston area,

aged from 16 to their 20s, to

officer Bruce

various

employers on

board and plan to take youth on

similar visits each month.

“One of them might be the

next CEO of a construction

company in years to come, the

opportunities are endless,” van

Dyk said.

“If you can use a PlayStation,

you can operate a digger and

you can get paid for it as well.”

Van Dyk himself has a background

in construction, having

been a former road surfacing

manager.

“There’s plenty of opportunity

in construction. It’s one of New

Zealand’s biggest industries,” he

said.

Young people were looking for

work, particularly in the wake of

Covid lockdowns. “A lot of stress

comes down from money and

income. If we can get people a

steady job then that would hopefully

change the stress at home,”

van Dyk said.

Ward said it was fantastic to

see youth he was dealing with

learning about the industry.

Some of the youth had quickly

“Some kids will pick it up really

quickly, and some won’t, but

it’s not to say they can’t do it,”

crashes after

swerving to

avoid ducks

• By Susan Sandys

A MOTORIST came out of a car

crash worse off than the ducklings

she was trying to avoid.

The driver told Coalgate Volunteer

Fire Brigade firefighters and

a nearby farmer at the scene she

had over-corrected after swerving

to avoid a family of ducks. The

crash happened about 7.30pm on

Thursday on State Highway 77.

“She’s a very lucky lady,” said

the farmer.

He heard the sound of tyres

screeching, then a loud thud. His

wife phoned 111 while he put his

boots on and ran to the scene,

about 100m down his driveway.

He arrived to find the woman

standing and looking at her badly

damaged car. It appeared the car

had gone into the ditch on its side,

but had tipped back upright. Her

only injury was a small scratch to

her head.

It appeared the ducks had made

a quick escape, as not even a

feather was to be seen.

Fire chief Philip Shaw advised

motorists not to risk their life to

avoid animals on the road.

“Because sometimes they

appear very quickly,” Shaw said.

Road repaired but care still needed

• By Susan Sandys

A BOUNCY strip of Ellesmere Rd

has finally been repaired.

The district council has

re-levelled the 400m strip between

Robinsons and Leadleys Rd at

Prebbleton.

It comes after the road has been

subject to 70km/h temporary speed

limit signs for the last five years.

It was the subject of complaints

from motorists, concerned about

trucks and large vehicles hitting

areas that had sunk, and bouncing

across the centre line.

Lincoln motorist Andrew Tabb

told the Selwyn Times in July the

road made “a joke” out of temporary

speed signs.

“How long is temporary before

it’s forever?” Tabb said.

“It’s really been permanent, not

temporary.”

He described having close calls

with traffic moving in the opposite

direction, as the piece of road was

getting worse every week. He said

as trucks and large vehicles hit the

areas that have sunk, they bounce

around crossing the centre line.

Now that the road, in a permanent

speed zone of 80km/h, has

been levelled, motorists will still

have to drive with care. This is

because the underlying soil of peat

is expected to continue causing

changes and slumping.

Transportation asset delivery

manager Mark Chamberlain told

the Selwyn Times in July that more

long-term repair of the road will be

conducted as part of construction

of seal widening, which is in the

Long Term Plan for 2024/25.

There had been no reported

crashes on the section of road since

September 2014.

Future of community garden still uncertain

• By Susan Sandys

LINCOLN Envirotown founder

Sue Jarvis is disappointed that

a public notice to dispose of

Lincoln Maternity Hospital

does not mention the site’s

community garden.

“They might think the community

no longer wants the hospital,

although that is debatable,

but the community certainly

wants the community

garden,” Jarvis (right)

said about the Canterbury

District Health

Board’s notice.

Lincoln Envirotown

was grateful to the

CDHB for allowing its

community garden be

established at the site in 2008,

and did not want to lose the

facility now.

The CDHB is required

by the New Zealand Public

Health and Disability

Act to consider any public

views on disposal of land

prior to proceeding with

the disposal process.

The 5401m2 property

contains the original 1926 maternity

building, as well and a

2011 dental building which may

be relocated to another CDHB

site.

The services provided from the

property are being relocated to

the Selwyn Health Hub at Rolleston,

which is due for completion

in December.

The proposal and summary of

submissions will be presented to

the Minister of Health for final

approval before any disposal of

land goes ahead.

Jarvis urged residents to be

part of the submission process by

the closing date of November 5.

FIRE READY: Prebbleton residents Judith and Vincent Kearns

learn about how to stay safe following a recent blaze courtesy of

FENZ senior adviser community readiness and recovery Wayne

Residents being informed of fire risk

• By Susan Sandys

PREBBLETON residents near a

fire on Tosswill Rd are making

their homes safer after a friendly

visit from Fire and Emergency

New Zealand personnel.

Senior adviser community

readiness and recovery Wayne

Hamilton and community risk

manager Dean Harker went door

to door on Thursday, providing

reassurance to residents

following the September 25

blaze.

The vegetation fire was fanned

by strong northerly winds. It

was brought under control by

noon as multiple crews and at

least 10 fire tankers responded.

It followed a fire in January 2013

in Prebbleton, which destroyed

a poultry farm and razed three

homes.

Hamilton said he and Harker

talked to residents or left

information packs in letter boxes

of about 200 homes.

“It’s a great way to provide

information for the coming

summer from a prevention side

of things,” he said.

Stationmasters Way resident

Judith Kearns said she and

husband Vincent appreciated the

visit.

They would now be installing

more smoke alarms, additional

to the two they already had.

“It’s awareness, you don’t

think about it until something

like a fire happens,” Kearns

said.

They would also draw up an

escape plan and put it on the

fridge, so visitors to their home

could see it.

“We have lots of grandchildren

who come to see us, we are

going to get that organised,” she

said.

New sign to

protect eels

removed

MORE SIGNAGE will be put in

to protect tame eels people feed in

Lincoln.

One of two signs warning

people not to fish for the longfin

eels in Liffey Springs Reserve was

ripped out within two weeks of

going in.

A district council spokesman

said it would be replaced on a

stronger post, and a third sign

would also be put in.

Teenagers have been seen by

people in the area harassing

and trying to catch the 20 or so

protected tame eels, causing an

outcry on Facebook.

The eels at the reserve are

protected by the district council’s

parks and reserves by-law and

also the Reserves Act.

They have been a feature of the

stream for decades.

Botanical Expo

and Rare Plant Fair

Delight in the beautiful spring weather and

take a relaxed stroll around the stunning

Members of the New Zealand Alpine

Garden Society, Canterbury Horticultural

and demonstrations and are keen to share

their knowledge. Apart from the multiple

displays and expert advice, there will be a

chance to purchase

plants and pot up a

seedling.

Easy-listening,

live music will

also be on hand to

entertain you while

you are browsing.

Food (filled roll,

THE LATEST Nielsen annual

readership report shows big

increases in readership for

Star Media newspaper titles.

Starmax is now read 199,000

times a week, up 16,000 readers

on the last report.

Star Media regional manager

Steve McCaughan said it

confirms what has been

known for a while – free local

newspapers and the printed

word are trusted more than

ever.

“Readers want local news

that’s relevant to them that they

can’t get that anywhere else and

certainly trust has been lost on

social media,” he said.

“Plus, there’s the tactility

factor of newspapers, it’s

a physical product in their

home. It’s extremely pleasing

to see all the titles we survey

– with The Star at 97,000,

readers.

Said McCaughan: “This is

great news for our advertisers

where placement of just one ad

in Starmax will be seen 199,000

times. That’s a larger audience

with one ad than any other

media option can offer.

“The Press readership has

circulation decline) and The

Plea for the return of

A VETERAN children’s

The stolen vehicle was ca rying

i replaceable handmade pu pets

the pair have used to entertain

children for the last four decades.

Mary feared the box wi l be

carele sly dumped. Having the

car back would be a bonus, but

returning what was inside was

what ma tered most.

“We’re hoping someone wi l find

it and trace it back to us,” she said.

“We recognise the people who

t ok the car didn’t want our puppets,

but it’s hugely inconvenient

and sad for the children that we

like to do shows for.”

The McCa mons have b en

CDHB

staff

slow to

take up

free flu

vaccine

• 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 yesterday 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.

Massive

effort to

get meals

to those

in need

• By Samantha Mythen

VOLUNTEERS ARE working

through lockdown to get meals

to people in need around the

harbour basin.

Lyttelton Community House,

which is operating as an essential

service, is delivering its normal

20-30 meals a week.

Community house social

worker Claire Coveney, who has

worked with the organisation for

two years, said it was “a massive

community team effort.”

The service began after the

earthquakes, which resulted in

the community house bringing in

a commercial kitchen.

Coveney said most of the people

they help are those who are older,

have disabilities or have health

issues. The meals cost $8.50.

“They may have difficulties

cooking or food shopping, or they

need legitimate rest or have been

unwell in hospital,” she said.

The organisation helps people

with both short and long-term

issues, for however long they

need, Coveney said.

Board, come on board to

offer the pop-up clinic.

It was held last month at

the Rolleston Community

Centre. A second one will

be held October 28.

Lazo said the first clinic

had gone well, with about

120 people getting jabbed

after making a booking,

and about 15 extra people

getting jabbed after walking

in.

Now that he had the

experience of having a

close family

member contract

the virus, it made

him even more

aware of just how

important vaccination

was.

“I keep telling

my story for

my community

here. If you get

the Covid virus you don’t

know if you are safe. Being

vaccinated is a support, not

just for you, but for your

loved ones,” Lazo said.

His sister Jacqueline fell

ill two weeks after receiving

her second Covid-19

jab.

“She said: ‘Pray for me,

I’m really worried, I think

I have got Covid’,” Lazo

said.

This was in the family

chat group, incorporating

Lazo and other family

members. She reported

symptoms including a dry

throat, body pains and

feeling weak. He said they

Blade Lazo

tried to boost her spirits

with kind words and

telling her to stay strong.

However, they could not

help but become upset,

particularly as they found

out the results of her Covid

test five days later. It was

positive, for the Delta variant.

The 46-year-old continued

self-isolating at

home, where she lives with

her daughter and granddaughter.

She temporarily

lost her sense of taste and

smell. She recovered and

returned a negative test last

week.

Lazo said he was grateful

that Jacqueline was vaccinated,

as he believes this

saved her from becoming

seriously ill with the virus.

She suspects she caught it

from her cousin who had

recently attended a funeral

service.

Prior to hearing about

his sister’s Covid-19

symptoms, Lazo and

fellow members of Pinoy

CARES Canterbury had

approached Pegasus Health

to find out about holding

the pop-up vaccination

clinic at Rolleston.

Legal Matters

Caveat Emptor – Buyer Beware

when Purchasing at Auction

Sale by Auction is prevalent in the

current property market. Buyers

should be aware that on the

fall of the hammer the Auction

Agreement is unconditional, and

they are essentially “locked in”

and legally obliged to complete

settlement of their purchase.

We summarise some of the key

steps potential purchasers can

take to ensure they are ready to

bid:

1. Register your interest in

the property: A seller (Vendor)

can withdraw a property

from sale at any time prior to

the auction date. If you are

particularly keen to secure a

property you may consider

submitting a pre-auction offer

to the Vendor. If another party

submits a pre-auction offer, and

the auction is brought forward,

you will then be notified if you

have registered your interest

with the agent.

2. Review the Property

Information Pack: Another

reason to register your interest

with the agent is to obtain a

copy of the Property Information

Pack. This is likely to contain

the Auction Agreement, Record

of Title and Land Information

Memorandum. It may also

contain details of the current

insurance policy, a market rental

appraisal and a builder’s report.

3. Obtain unconditional

finance approval: If you reliant

on a loan, ensure you have

unconditional approval from

your finance provider. A general

pre-approval may not suffice

as often the bank will want to

approve the specific property

being purchased. The bank

may also require a satisfactory

valuation prior to the auction

date.

4. Deposit: If you are

successful at auction it is

common for a deposit of 10% of

the purchase price to be payable

on the day. You should be

aware that you cannot use your

KiwiSaver funds for payment of

the deposit when purchasing at

auction.

5. Do not overspend: Set

yourself a limit and do not bid

over the maximum price you

can afford. There are no legal

remedies available to you if you

overbid and are subsequently

unable to afford to complete

settlement.

6. Advise your Solicitor you

intend to bid: We often review

Auction Information Packs, can

ensure all is in order and are

here to guide you through the

process.

Whether you are a Vendor or

Purchaser, we are here to assist.

Milestone celebration for artists

DARFIELD ARTWEEK organisers

will celebrate 40 years of annual art

exhibitions this weekend.

Malvern Community Arts Council

chairman Philip Baldwin said Darfield

Artweek began as a weekend exhibition

by local artists.

“It has grown to a 10-day celebration of

art that attracts entries from as many as

160 artists in Selwyn District, the city of

Christchurch, and countrywide,” Baldwin

said.

There would be more than 300 artworks

by at least 130 artists at the exhibition, at

Darfield Recreation Centre. These numbers

compared favourably with last year’s

351 works by 160 artists, considering the

uncertainty that the August lockdown

had caused, Baldwin said.

At the same time, the arts council would

showcase artworks at Te Huanui Art Gallery

in Darfield by outstanding artists who

had exhibited at Darfield Artweek and the

gallery over the last 40 years.

Judge Shirin Khosraviani, curator of the

Ashburton Art Gallery, will announce the

winner of the $2000 Malvern Community

Arts Council premier award at the opening

night gala on Friday.

An array of additional awards, donated

by local sponsors, will also be presented.

“We are thrilled at the level of sponsorship

from local businesses and donations

from individuals which make it possible

for us to offer a generous list of awards,”

Baldwin said.

“This will allow everyone to visit and

appreciate the breadth of artistic talent

that Artweek attracts,” Baldwin said.

IT’S BEEN a hard

day’s night for Lincoln

University entomology

research collection curator

John Marris and his team.

They recently completed

the mammoth task of

adding 14,000 new beetle

specimens to the university’s

collection.

The beetles, gifted by the

University of Canterbury,

represent the single largest

donation of specimens in

the collection’s 50-year

history.

Numbering almost 1000

species, many of which are

new to science, the specimens

add significantly

to the overall coverage of

insect biodiversity within

the Lincoln collection.

As such, they are a large

addition to the existing

250,000 pinned insects

already held.

Lincoln University

houses one of the country’s

largest entomology collections

and is the only

university-based collection

in New Zealand.

The collection is used by

Lincoln staff and students,

as well as national and

international researchers,

as an identification

reference library and as

a source for new species’

descriptions.

Marris said the beetle

donation came from a

large study on the impact

of forest changes on the

invertebrate fauna in

the Hurunui District. It

focused on topics such as

BUG INVASION: Thousands of new beetle

specimens at Lincoln University will be an

important resource for future research, says

entomology research collection curator John

Marris.

declining forest cover and

edge effects from adjacent

pastoral land.

“It will be an important

resource for future

research on the impacts

of changes to our forests,”

Marris said.

The project took

research technician

Sally Ladbrook around 700

hours to complete.

It was was supported

by funding from the

Brian Mason Scientific and

Technical Trust, which

provides grants for science

and technology in the

Canterbury and Westland

regions.

The New Zealand insect

fauna consists of 10,000

described (named) species,

but it is estimated that

another 10,000 species are

yet to be described.

Beetles account for 40

per cent of all insect species.

The overwhelming

majority of New Zealand

insect species, more than

90 per cent, are endemic to

New Zealand.

THE ROLLESTON

Razorbacks had a good

Five women’s and seven

Each game starts with

two runners already on

ever comes first.

While fast-paced,

the game is also a very

Next stage of town centre

under way

With Te Ara Ātea and the Sensory Space nearing completion,

the next stage of work on the Rolleston Town Centre has begun.

Council contractors are installing new services, car parks and

completing the new slow speed road connecting Moore Street and

Rolleston Drive. The work is due to be completed in May 2022.

A section of the Rolleston Reserve greenspace is closed to allow

work to occur, and the playground and skate park will be closed at

times during construction, when work is required in those areas.

Access will remain for the Scouts Den, Playcentre, tennis courts and

Rolleston Community Centre.

For more information visit selwyn.govt.nz/rtc.

Council calls for time out on Government’s

water reform proposal

Selwyn District Council has called for a pause in the Government’s water reform proposal, and

will not agree to transfer any water assets to a new entity without full engagement with the

Selwyn community.

The Council has sent its formal response to Minister for Local Government Nanaia Mahuta on the

Government’s proposed three waters reform proposals.

The Council has reiterated calls for a pause in the water reform process, first proposed by the

Canterbury Mayoral Forum chaired by Selwyn Mayor Sam Broughton.

“As yet, we do not believe the case for change has been proven for Selwyn. In our response we

have asked the Government for more information to help us fully understand certain issues and for

time to consult with our community before making any decisions,” Mayor Broughton says.

The Council has committed to consult with Selwyn residents before opting in or out of the reforms.

It is essential the public has a voice and is heard both in the reform proposals and the ongoing

governance of our most essential service, Mayor Broughton says.

“Informal feedback has indicated that our communities’ primary concern is about losing a local

say in the running of their assets."

The response also calls on the Government to answer important questions about the detail of

how the reform would work, before the Council and the public can make an informed decision.

Among its questions the Council has asked for more information about how projected future costs

have been calculated, how the partnership with mana whenua will work, how local community

input into decision making will be retained, and how local planning priorities will be protected

under the proposed changes.

The Council’s focus is to make sure communities continue to have secure, safe access to

affordable water services, Mayor Broughton says.

Partnership to better manage Selwyn Crown

pastoral leases

A first-of-its-kind agreement has been made as part of efforts to better manage Crown pastoral leases

in Selwyn, and protect the native plants and animals that call them home.

The Council and Toitū Te Whenua Land Information New Zealand have signed a memorandum of

understanding (MOU) to share consent information on these unique landscapes.

Toitū Te Whenua is responsible for managing eight Crown pastoral leases in Selwyn and these cover

85,000 hectares, including areas of native biodiversity.

To carry out certain activities on the land, leaseholders need to apply for consent to Toitū Te Whenua,

the council, or sometimes both.

Toitū Te Whenua Chief Executive Gaye Searancke says both agencies saw an opportunity to work more

closely together to achieve better outcomes for the land and make the process easier for leaseholders.

“We were already sharing consent information case-by-case. This agreement will take that to the next

level. We will now share information on consents relating to land-use change and development, such

as cultivation, earthworks, tracking and removal of native vegetation. It will also make things simpler for

leaseholders.”

Ms Searancke says the MOU is the first of its kind for Crown pastoral leases in New Zealand.

Council Chief Executive David Ward says the Council

is looking forward to working more closely with Toitū

Te Whenua and the leaseholders to ensure Selwyn’s

indigenous fauna and flora is protected and well managed.

“We know indigenous biodiversity in Aotearoa New Zealand

is under threat, and this MOU is a small step in ensuring

our district continues to protect its outstanding and unique

natural environment.

“As a council we are required by law to ensure these

special features can be enjoyed by future generations and

continue to be part of our identity.”

Faces of Selwyn – A connection to Selwyn and art

Living in Selwyn came as a bit of a surprise for Malvern artists, Soon-Lee Spicer and Asako Ridgen.

The pair met through their shared passion for art.

“Asako didn’t know any artists in Selwyn and I only knew one – so we started up the Selwyn Artists

Collective and I think we’ve got about 50 members now. It’s just this really vibrant, exciting thing,” says

Soon-Lee.

After joining the group in August 2020, Asako says she made lots of friends, often bumping into them at

the fish and chip shop or kindergarten.

“It’s just so easy to connect to people [in Selwyn] and wherever you go there’s familiar faces and I love

that,” says Soon-Lee.

Asako is from Japan and Soon-Lee grew up in Malaysia and has lived around New Zealand.

“When I was a little girl living in Malaysia, if you’d ask me, I probably wanted a metropolitan lifestyle of

high rise apartments and lots of glamour, and bright city lights,” says Soon-Lee.

But after studying mathematics and law in Dunedin, where she met her husband, and working as a

lawyer in Auckland, Soon-Lee found herself living in Darfield with her husband and two kids, working as

an artist and art teacher.

“We have a lifestyle property with cows, chickens and sheep, just nowhere near where I thought I’d be,

but what a cool surprise to have ended up here!”

As a teenager, Asako dreamed of being an animator in America because of her love for Disney movies

and drawing. She first came to New Zealand aged 15 as an exchange student studying at Darfield

High School.

“The first time I lay down on the lawn in bare feet, it was just an

amazing experience. I still remember that as my highlight in my

exchange student memory.”

Asako attended art university in Japan for two years but found it

hard, especially the 13-hour art exam.

Instead she moved to Dunedin for three years, before coming

back to Greendale with her Kiwi husband and their two children,

where she continues her art journey in linocut printmaking.

Tune into PlainsFM on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday this

week at 5pm to listen live and hear Soon-Lee Spicer and Asako

Ridgen, Monika Rastogi, Ritodhi Chakraborty and Aline Carrara’s

stories – or visit selwyn.govt.nz/facesofselwyn to find the Faces of

PREBBLETON Touch members

are launching into the new

season in spite of alert level 2.

Convener Dave Forrester

said the module’s main focus

had been on contact tracing,

bubbles and sanitising equipment.

“We have had to spend a huge

amount of time, and quite a lot

of money, preparing a plan that

will enable us to run touch at

Prebbleton within the level 2

rules,” Forrester said.

“We have re-arranged our field

locations so that we maintain a

clear bubble for each field, and

have increased the time between

games to enable entry and exit

without contact.”

Prebbleton Touch will start

for open grades next week, on

October 14, and junior grades the

following week, on October 21.

The module has about 1100

players, ranging from school new

entrants to adults.

This season there is an under

19 grade aimed at bridging the

gap between youth grade and

open grades, while a popular social

grade introduced last season

has 50 per cent more players than

last season.

Double ton for Mariu

RISING STAR Rhys Mariu

wasted no time getting into

form for the new country

cricket season as the former

New Zealand under-19 captain

slugged an unbeaten double

ton to power Ohoka to a

commanding win over

Lincoln.

The opener’s stunning

202 from just 128 deliveries

set up a whopping

214-run victory during

Saturday’s opening

round of the premier one

day competition.

Mariu’s assault at Mandeville

included a century’s worth of

boundaries and a half dozen

sixes as Ohoka amassed 368/4

from their allotted 45 overs.

He also combined with Will

Hamilton (68 from 60) to add

138 for the second wicket. In

reply Lincoln could only muster

154 before they were dismissed

in the 39th over.

In other games defending

champion Weedons secured a

hard-fought win over Sefton

while Darfield and Cheviot also

started successfully.

At Weedons Domain the hosts

were limited to 135 as their innings

lasted just 30 overs, but a

run-a-ball 87 from opener Todd

Inness enabled them to post a

defendable total after veteran

Jeff Jones snared four wickets.

Set a seemingly attainable

chase, Sefton’s innings faltered

as Blake Coburn, Charlie Robson

and Sam Clarke took three

wickets apiece before Sefton fell

22 runs short.

Cheviot cruised to a six-wicket

win over Southbrook at

Rangiora’s MainPower

Oval in spite of an unbeaten

century by Canterbury

star Jack Boyle.

Boyle’s 109 lifted

Southbrook to 208/4,

but Cheviot overhauled

Rhys Mariu the target with 20 balls to

spare,thanks to a classy

unbeaten 86 by Archie Redfern.

Darfield defended 195 on their

home track against Oxford-Rangiora

through a solid team effort

to prevail by 40 runs.

In New Zealand there

One native genus in this

identification. Past species

numbers in this genus

were thought to be as high

6 Tennyson Street, Rolleston

BESIDE RE/MAX ECLIPSE

Local travel business

bucks the trend

For the last 18 months, during the most tumultuous

period that they have ever experienced, local

Helloworld Rolleston business owners Paul and Sue

Robinson have remained committed to their extensive

client base in the Selwyn region. When their lease

expired in Rolleston Square, and with no immediate

sign of a managed opening of the border, Paul and Sue

decided to kit out a smart portacom on-site beside

their other business RE/MAX Eclipse at 6 Tennyson

Street Rolleston as a temporary means of business

continuation.

Undoubtedly, the travel industry has had the biggest

effect from Covid with very little income for the past

18 months. However, the team at Helloworld have been

feverishly busy assisting their clients and families return

to New Zealand through a maze of regulatory changes,

collapsed cruise lines, continued flight cancellations,

and re-bookings.

“We simply couldn’t close up, despite the financial

pressure we had as we had a multitude of people we

needed to help with refunds and re-bookings,” says Sue.

“We feel the frustration of our clients. We have had

people in tears after cancellations of once-in-a-lifetime

trips, while others, due to health reasons, will never

experience their dream holiday. And that’s been so sad

to deal with. The saving grace was our decision to open

RE/MAX Eclipse Real Estate, which has subsidised

Helloworld and its fixed costs to keep the store open

and some local staff in employment.”

Paul and Sue are now beginning to feel that the

light at the end of the tunnel is starting to emerge

with the UK, USA and other countries opening up for

vaccinated travellers. There is a growing hope that NZ

will have some form of managed opening as soon as

vaccination levels rise.

“We are here for the long term and simply can’t wait

to see the world re-open, and with the pent-up market

waiting for the gears to change, we get the feeling that

people will want to travel with less delay and enjoy

smaller and more unique experiences,” says Sue. “We

can’t wait to be part of this again.”

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

Majestic creatures to feature

The Ellesmere A&P Association once had

a role in advocating for improved draught

horse bloodlines in the district. In 1935 a

Clydesdale stallion – from Henley, Otago

- was chosen to travel Selwyn under the

auspices of the association. This scheme

was short-lived. By 1937 the scheme was

expected to make a loss, in view of the

price of horses and the market trend,

and less than whole-hearted support by

members, so the scheme was discontinued.

Horse and Stallion Parades, organised by

the association and held in late September,

were an opportunity for stud owners to

show off their finest bloodlines. Something

akin to the modern-day reality tv series

‘The Bachelorette’, the annual parade was

held prior to the annual Show, allowing

farmers to compare stallions ‘in the flesh’

before mating season began.

Annual ploughing matches, run by the

association from 1920 to 1927 (ploughing

matches were held prior to 1920 and

organised by an independent Ploughing

Match Committee) were a marvellous

spectacle of working horsepower – teams

of beautifully groomed and ribbon

bedecked Clydesdales with polished

harness and sparkling nickel plate.

The abandonment of the ploughing

matches heralded the decline of the role

of the Clydesdale. Show competitors

dwindled as a result. The Ellesmere

Guardian of May 1944 commented that

the 1943 Ellesmere Show was the first

time on record that Clydesdales were

deleted from the programme and ‘many

expressions of regret were voiced that

such a course has been necessary by the

development of mechanical power in

agricultural pursuits’.

In the intervening years the number of

Clydesdale breeders declined and hence

numbers being exhibited at local shows.

That makes it more exciting having the

special 150th Ellesmere A&P Association

Show this year.

Digits crossed for Selwyn show

The Ellesmere A & P Committee has its

fingers firmly crossed that the Government

will lift the Level 2 COVID restrictions

in time to allow for the public to attend

the Show’s 150th anniversary at this year’s

Selwyn Spring Show’ under Level 1. A

decision will be made by the Committee in

early October as to what level the Selwyn

Spring Show will run at. This could result

in a Level 2 set Show even if a late change

to Level 1 occurs before 16 October. This

special show setting will

over-ride any subsequent

Government determined

late Level 1 changes. If

we remain at Level 2, or

there is a late Government

change to Level 1 just

before the show, then the

show will only be open to

exhibitors with no public

and under tightly managed

conditions. This is because

there simply would not be

enough time to facilitate

the requirements to cater

for an open public event.

Everyone is hoping though

that we can celebrate

under Level 1 with our

gates open to all. The

Association would like to

thank everyone for their

continued support through

these uncertain times and

acknowledges those who

have entered all the classes with pleasingly

high numbers.

If this happens then everyone will be

delighted to see the mighty Clydesdales

back. Arguably the most majestic of all the

farmed animals and the perennial Show

favourite, the Clydesdale played an integral

role in the development of farming in

Ellesmere. This role will be celebrated at

this year’s show, where the Clydesdales

will be competing for two 150th Show

medallions – Supreme Clydesdale and Best

Clydesdale Handler.

The oldest silverware still

retained by the Association

is an ornate cup first

presented in 1876 to John

McKellar’s ‘Prince Royal’ for

Association’s Publican’s

Cup Best Draught Entire

travelling the District. John

McKellar was Scottish

born, residing firstly in

Otago upon arrival in New

Zealand, before moving to

Ellesmere. He originally

farmed in Doyleston and

later farmed Oak Farm in

Southbridge until retiring

into Southbridge in 1906.

He was an exhibitor and

prize winner at the first

Ellesmere Show. John was

on the A&P Committee

from 1879-1892 and was

Vice President in 1889.

The 1912 Christchurch Press obituary for

Mr McKellar notes ‘he was well respected

in the stud draught horse business, owning

a number of high-class horses at different

times, several of which were recognised as

the best in Canterbury in their day.

In 1927 the trustees of his estate

presented the Association a mounted

collection of medals won by his horses in

show competition’.

Entries for the Clydesdale sections this

year are looking very robust so let’s hope

the Government gives the South Island

the green light just in time to see these

wonderful horses back in the show ring.

FOOD

Many projects are underway in

Selwyn to protect and improve

freshwater, including attempts

to limit damaging sediment and

stormwater.

Sediment is fine particles of

soil that when it rains, flows

through stormwater drains or

down hillsides, into streams

and rivers. It’s harmful to many

aquatic species, including kōwaro

(Canterbury mudfish), tuna (eel)

and pātiki (flounder).

“Stopping sediment from

entering waterways is crucial, as

sediment smothers fish habitat, makes it

hard for them to see their food, and once

it’s in the waterway, is extremely difficult to

remove,” Selwyn Waihora Zone Delivery

Lead Gill Jenkins said.

Earthworks near waterways and land

developments pose some of the biggest

risks when it comes to sediment in

In Selwyn Waihora zone waterways.

Knowingly allowing sediment to runoff

into waterways can sometimes result in

fines for those responsible.

During a rain was the best time to see

where sediment was coming from both

in urban and rural areas, Jenkins said.

Anyone seeing sediment or erosion

issues during heavy rains, or at building/

construction sites, could call the council’s

incident response hotline on 0800 765

588. “Once we know where it is, we can

investigate and work with those managing

the site to improve their practice.”

Environment Canterbury (ECan) had

an “online toolbox with tips and tricks” to

make sure sites are prepared to handle any

rain events and keep sediment on-site and

out of streams.

GARDENING 33

Fill your garden with delicious treats

• By Henri Ham

OCTOBER IS probably one of

the busiest months in the garden

– the jobs are endless but it’s also

a fun time to fill up your garden

with delicious treats such as

cucumbers, basil, tomatoes and

pops of colour.

General tidy up:

• Mulch your gardens to retain

moisture and suppress weed

growth

• Deadhead flowers to

encourage more growth

• Clean up dead leaves and

twigs as they may be harbouring

disease

• Remove moss from paths and

driveways

• Keep on top of your weeds

• Clean your tools – your

garden tools will be getting a

workout this season. Give them a

good clean and apply some olive

oil to prevent rust.

• Feed strawberries and

passionfruit

Cucumbers, capsicums, chillies,

pumpkins, tomatoes and zucchini

– it’s their time to shine. If you’re

new to gardening or thinking of

giving it a go – now is the perfect

time to dig in and get started.

If you’re still experiencing cold

snaps and frost in your area, we

recommend holding off planting

your tomatoes until the weather

warms up.

SUCCULENT: It’s now time to get your cucumber plants in the garden, you will be rewarded when it comes time to

make those summer salads. Russian tarragon is a must-have in any garden, it has a strong anise flavour.

Kumara, a Kiwi favourite

wouldn’t you say? If you’re

planting kumara this year, make

sure your soil isn’t too acidic.

Kumara prefers soil with a pH

level of around 6.0 to 6.5 – to get

the best of your crop make sure

that the base of your soil is solid

as this will prevent the roots from

growing all over the place and

encourage more tubers.

Basil and russian tarragon are

a must-have in any herb garden.

Basil works well planted amongst

your tomatoes to deter any bugs,

apparently, it intensifies the taste

of the tomato too.

Russian tarragon which is

actually part of the lettuce family

has quite a strong anise flavour,

it works well with roasts and as a

garnish.

Salad planting, keep planting

your lettuce, spring onions so that

you have plenty in the warmer

months.

If you’re after a berry-filled

summer, start planting your

raspberry, blueberry and

blackberry bushes now.

Just remember that slugs are

still about, try using a bait to

prevent these little guys from

eating all your hard work.

Add some colour to your

garden. Cosmos, dahlias,

gazanias, livingstone daisies and

petunias are popular this time

of year – these varieties are great

for border, bedding and hanging

baskets which is great for those

that have smaller gardens. Plant

some flowers around your vege

garden too to encourage those

little pollinators.

It’s also time to spray your roses

to prevent any fungal disease, it’s

also a good time to feed them as

they’ll be growing like crazy at the

moment.

Your lawns will be growing

at a rapid rate this month, keep

them looking lush by occasionally

applying lawn fertiliser is a blend

of nutrients that your lawn will

love, the high levels of nitrogen

will encourage thick, healthy

growth and prevent disease.

Keep an eye out for broadleaf

– if you spot some make sure to

spray them with weedkiller so

that they don’t take over your

hard work and resow any patchy

areas

Plant whatever takes your fancy.

If you’re a beginner gardener

there’s never been a better month

to start experimenting.

Garden

In the

with intelligro

Growing veggies is a

great way to get the

whole family involved

in gardening. It is very

rewarding eating meals

with veggies you have

grown yourself.

The other bonus of

growing your own

vegetables is that you

can grow what you what,

you know what they are

growing in, and have

confidence in knowing

they are free from nasty

sprays.

What you’ll need...

• Veggie Garden Mix

• Veggie seedlings

• Something to plant in

– we love the Vegepods

and the Birdie’s Garden Beds!

Where to Start...

Once you have chosen where and what you are

planting in, grab your Veggie Mix and fill the area.

If you have an established garden that needs

rejuvenating, then mix through some organic compost

and sheep pellets or veggie mix to give it the boost.

Stagger your planting. For example, if you plant

6 lettuces at once, they will all be ready at the same

time. Stagger the planting a week or two apart so you

have an ongoing supply through the season.

Key tips for a bumper crop

• Keep the plants pest, disease and weed-free

• Establish a good watering routine. Plants will bolt to seed

if they feel that they are under stress from lack of watering

• Make sure they have enough nutrients to sustain healthy

growth

Nissan Navara comes to the rescue

MY WIFE AND I have called it

the week from hell.

Firstly, our power went off

thanks to a corroded wire from

the street. While we thought we

were well advanced in terms of

preparedness – generator, gas

cooker, torches and plenty of

batteries – for 24 hours we struggled

without electricity with an

overnight low of a miserable -5

deg C.

Secondly, the fluctuating power

surge as the wire arced against the

house, spelt the end of one of our

freezers, it was full of frozen food,

quickly defrosting.

Thankfully, and at short notice,

we had a rental delivered until the

time we could buy a new freezer

and have it installed so no food

was lost.

That’s where Nissan’s new

Navara ute comes in. We bought

a new freezer and I used the ute

to pick it up from the collection

depot, I also used the vehicle

to deliver the old freezer to the

Parkhouse Rd recycling centre

along with a dryer that had long

been sitting in the garage unused

and was well past its used by date.

That’s where today’s double

cab ute comes in, it’s not only the

working vehicle with substantial

off-road, four-wheel-drive ability,

it’s the sedate and versatile carryall

that will also whisk families to

all those environments we travel

to on a daily basis and, might I

add, in comfort.

Nissan has just released a new

Navara, well, it’s a new shape with

a major overhaul inside, but the

mechanicals are largely a carryover.

That’s fine, the 2.3-litre

four-cylinder diesel engine is a

cracker in terms of sophistication,

so much so that Nissan must

have the other ute manufacturers

thinking hard about refinement.

The Navara also has a complex

rear suspension; gone are the

old leaf springs that are mostly

traditional with today’s pick-ups,

the Navara has a coil spring,

multiple-link set-up that locates

the live rear axle. It eliminates a

lot of the jiggle you get with utes

over uneven surfaces.

At the other end the twinturbocharged

diesel is rated by

Nissan at 140kW and 450Nm. The

origins of this engine hark back to

Nissan’s early alliance with Renault

and that collaboration shows,

there are high power outputs and

a smoothness that’s hard to match.

There’s no lumpy diesel throb here,

it works away in a soft, silent manner

and is very responsive. Not

only do the power outputs impress

through its 2298cc displacement,

it is also a fuel miser.

Nissan claims a 7.6-litre per

100km combined cycle average.

My time with the evaluation

vehicle required a lot of inner-city

running around incorporating

those tasks I mentioned in my

FOUR-WHEEL-DRIVE: Genuine off-road ability.

NISSAN NAVARA ST-X: Home appliances are easily catered for on the ute’s deck..

introduction. That being the

case, I wasn’t expecting to come

close to Nissan’s claims, but I

did return it to the dealership

with 9l/100km showing on the

readout. On my long highway

run to Hororata and Dunsandel,

a steady 100km/h cruise had the

engine sipping fuel at the rate of

6l/100km instantaneously, the

rev counter pointing to a lazy

1750rpm in seventh gear.

Yes, the ST-X has an automatic

seven-speeder and it, too, is one

of relative smoothness, shifts are

quick and can be encouraged

through a sequential shifting system

at the main gearshift lever.

Another interesting driveline

function is the four-mode

drive-type selector, it ranges

from standard to sport, tow and

off-road, I largely left it in normal

mode, but for those who like to

explore maximum efficiencies

those modes are there to help.

Elsewhere, the Navara is also

very car-like to drive, sure at over

5.2m it is a big vehicle and a trial

to fit into a standard city metered

car park, but it has a purpose

and it’s unashamedly suited for

that. On the deck you can load

the traditional one-tonne, and it

is rated with a 3500kg tow figure

(braked).

In terms of transportation it

will also carry five adults, the rear

seats don’t have a lot of rake but

• Price – Nissan Navara ST-

X, $57,490

• Dimensions – Length,

5255mm; width, 1850mm;

height, 1815mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2298cc, 140kW, 450Nm,

seven-speed automatic

• Performance – 0-100km/h,

9.4sec

• Fuel usage – 7.6l/100km

they are easily as comfortable as

any of the competition.

Up front there are heated seats

(full leather trim), and as much

technology as you could expect

from a modern ute. Satellite navigation

is fitted in ST-X models

along with cruise control and full

electrics.

On the highway the Navara

moves quietly and with much

dignity. In terms of handling it

enters a corner with solid turn-in

and little transition of weight. The

rear is far from lively and even

though part of my highway evaluation

was on wet roads, I never

thought the suspension would

let me down in terms of keeping

the tyres gripping well the road

surface.

Interestingly, the Navara rides

on 255/60 x 18in Toyo tyres and

they must be commended for

their quiet operating manner and

effective feedback to the driver.

Nissan has a comprehensive

Navara line-up – single-cab, king

cab and double cab – with two

and four-wheel-drive drivelines

and manual and automatic transmission

options.

The range starts from $41,990

and ends at $67,990 for the flashy

Pro 4X. I drove that model prior

to picking up the ST-X and it

made an immediate impression

on me for its body kit and chunky

tyres, yet, it too, drives in the

civilised manner that this series

of Navara can take enormous

credit for.

The ST-X on the other hand

doesn’t miss out on much to the

Pro 4X, but it is not so in-yourface

in terms of style. That being

the case, I’d easily settle for the

base to mid-grade models.

The new Navara comes at an

opportune time. The Government

tax on utes is set for January

and buyers are flocking to them

to save the extra cost that is expected

to be somewhere between

$2780-$5175.

Nissan assures me supply is

constant and interest in the newcomer

is high. I can see why, it

certainly sits as one of the market

leaders.

I know it certainly arrived in

my driveway at an opportune

time. My wife and I are so

grateful.

From the beat

to the ward

After 18 years in the New Zealand

Police Force, Ally Ealam has embarked

on a whole new career.

The former frontline senior sergeant recently graduated from

Ara Institute of Canterbury with a New Zealand Diploma in Enrolled Nursing

and is now working in aged care in Rangiora where she grew up.

Ally says she’d “seen it all” as a police officer. “I attended some pretty horrific

jobs over the years. Some of them I’ll never forget, but those experiences

made me the person I am today.”

Although Ally decided to step away from enforcement, she wanted to do

something that drew upon her many years of work experience and her past

involvement in St John Ambulance. Enrolled nursing fit the bill perfectly.

“I’d heard Ara was a fantastic place to learn. I loved the whole learning

environment and the buzz of learning - it reminded me of my Police College

days.”

During her studies, Ally had clinical placements in a variety of health

settings. “I got to watch two emergency caesarean sections,” she says. “That

was amazing - I cried under my facemask!”

When she was in the Police, Ally loved working with the elderly. Now that

she’s gained her nursing diploma, she’s thrilled to be working with seniors

again – this time as an enrolled nurse at Bainswood on Victoria in Rangiora.

“Ara equipped me with the skills and confidence to work with our elderly

and I’m really enjoying it. I’m looking after and connecting with the residents

and their families, getting experience in assessing and dressing wounds,

managing medication, working with our local GPs and palliative care nurses

and so much more. I feel absolutely privileged to be able to do what I do.”


There’s definitely a place

for women in engineering.

Digger driver becomes

design engineer

Not so long ago, Steph Crosson

(Ngāti Whātua) was working in the civil

works industry, driving a digger all day.

That was until she decided she wanted

something more out of life.


I loved the whole learning

experience and the buzz of

learning.


Enrolled nurse

Ally Ealam.

“I had this overwhelming feeling that it wasn’t enough,” she says.

Her job involved working around engineers and she started to become

interested in what they were doing and why. “I kinda just wanted to be

part of that.” So, she took the “daunting” step of enrolling in a mechanical

engineering degree at Ara.

Three years later and instead of driving a digger, Steph has the skills to

design one. “I could design the hydraulic systems, the components within it

and even the things the diggers are building.”

Before coming to Ara, Steph’s last experience of education was at high

school in Timaru. She never thought she’d come back to study, but once she

took the plunge, she thrived in Ara’s hands-on learning environment.

“Ara was great – the whole way through. I wouldn’t study anywhere else.

The class sizes were perfect to me because you got to know everyone, and

everybody helped each other out. The facilities were awesome, and the

tutors were great, really supportive.”

Steph says being a woman in engineering has been no problem. “There’s

definitely a place for women in engineering because we bring a new

perspective to problem solving and creativity. I never felt excluded at Ara – it

was a really supportive learning space and so much fun.”

International consultancy company Beca offered Steph a job as she neared

the completion of her studies and she says she couldn’t have asked for a

better end to her degree.

“I just really want to encourage anyone – it doesn’t matter your age or your

background – that study is a viable option. Life’s too short to muck around.

Just own your life and make it happen. Learn more, know more, do more.”

Building skills for a

brighter future

Tony Siva is proudly Samoan and

even prouder since he took a trades

course at Ara and got himself an

apprenticeship to become a builder.

Why did you choose to learn a trade?

To build a better future for my family by becoming a qualified builder. Also,

the course was free through Ara’s Pacific Trades Training scheme.

What was your experience at Ara like?

I thought it would be awkward because of my age, being surrounded by

kids who just finished school. But my tutors were great – they made learning

relevant and fun – and I was encouraged all the way.

What did you enjoy most about your course?

As well as learning how to build a house and things like retaining walls, decks

and fences, we learned how to interpret our culture through woodwork, so I

also made a To’oto’o (Samoan chief’s staff).

What kind of support did you receive through

Pacific Trades Training?

There’s lots of care and support provided - like bus money, petrol vouchers,

food vouchers, counsellors and advisors. And Ara’s

Pacific Island Students Association offers a lot too.

What are you doing now?

I’m doing my apprenticeship at Home NZ Construction.

What are your plans for the future?

I want to buy or build my own house and hopefully go back to Samoa to help

rebuild my village.

What advice would you give to anyone contemplating study?

It’s never too late to study or change your career path. If you work hard and

put the time and effort into a trade, I guarantee you’ll reap the benefits.


It’s never too late

We’re here to support you

in the best way we can.


Support at the ready

for all learners

Ara’s dedicated Disability Services

team has a simple objective: equity

in education.

“We aim to level the playing field to allow students with impairments to have

equitable access to their chosen course and future path,” explains Ara disability

advisor, Rose Edgar.

Ara can help support students with almost any impairment or long-term medical

condition including dyslexia, epilepsy, autism spectrum conditions, chronic

fatigue, mental health difficulties (e.g. depression), traumatic brain injury, or

hearing, visual and physical impairments such as spina bifida and paralysis.

The team works with students to find supports or adjustments that will help

reduce any barriers they face due to disabilities or health conditions. “That

might be extra time for exams, finding technology which supports their learning,

communicating with tutors about changes that need to be made during classes,

or connecting students with other support services in and around Ara,” says

student advisor, Kirstie McHale. “Once a student signs up with us, we work

with them to create an individualised access plan which outlines the targeted

support in place for them.”

Kirstie adds that for some students, reader/writer assistance in an exam can be

the difference between passing and failing. “Timed exams can be a real barrier

for students with learning difficulties that affect their reading or writing. Having

a support person to read questions aloud,

or write down verbal answers, allows students to show what they know in an

exam situation more accurately.”

Support is available across all Ara campuses and Rose encourages individuals

to contact Disability Services as soon as they’re thinking about studying at Ara.

“We understand that people are sometimes apprehensive about asking for help.

Often people attach a stigma to the word disability and won’t seek the help

they’re entitled to, but we encourage anyone who could benefit from our help to

get in touch. We’re here to support you in the best way we can. The smartest thing

you can do for your study is to make use of all the support available to you.”

Unassuming Quality!

If you’re seeking style with substance, then look no

further. This home’s crisp lines and interconnected

living offer contemporary ambience with a

distinctive personality.

The timeless configuration cleverly separates

public and private spaces, ensuring family harmony

no matter your age or stage. Living is generous,

with both open plan and separate options, while a

separate study or snug offers further flexibility. The

remainder of the floorplan includes four double

bedrooms, master with ensuite and sought-after

separate storage loaded laundry and double

garaging.

The living areas are complemented by a

sophisticated Marantz home entertainment system

and the home is heated via a ducted system

keeping you cosy in winter but given the home’s sunsaturated

orientation, you’ll hardly need to use it.

Busy professionals will appreciate low maintenance

construction and garden with ample space for

entertaining friends and family. The indoor-outdoor

flow to the west facing deck houses an inbuilt BBQ

and fridge. Along with this, and the generous kitchen

and walk-in scullery you will surely enjoy some

mouth-watering meals.

Located opposite a park, complete with basketball

court and playground, allows plenty of outdoor

activities for family fun without the upkeep a large

section requires.

Our vendors have secured another alternative for

their family and are keen to move to the next phase

of their lives.

a new home. Most need to be made before plans are

lodged for consent and construction gets underway.

Housing companies usually guide their clients through

this process.

Whether working with a housing company or

calling on the assistance of an architect or architectural

draftsperson there will be a lot of decisions. The process

will be easier for all concerned, if you have done your

homework first.

Carry out your own research on building trends and

choices. This will help you get a feel for what is available.

Before deciding on your builder, you will want to find

out whether the company will require you to choose

from their existing library of house designs and a set

range of features and fittings, or whether you will have

the freedom to have a more bespoke plan and to choose

any feature available on the market.

As you research, keep records of what you might like

to have in your own home. Initially, you will be idea

gathering. Take photos of aspects within house designs

which appeal to you along with the fittings you like.

List down the key points you would like in your

home:

• number of bedrooms, living areas and bathrooms;

• size of garage e.g. double or triple;

• open plan living, or one or more separated living

spaces;

• kitchen dynamics including whether a pantry or

scullery is a must;

• wardrobes – size and type e.g. walk-in robe in master

bedroom;

• office or study nook needs;

• laundry separate or in the garage;

• cladding and roofing types;

• storage facilities within the home including

cupboards, storerooms and attic trusses;

• type of heating and whether under floor

heating, a ducted system or a log fire;

• double or thermal low-emissivity windows;

• spaciousness of entryway; and

• indoor/outdoor flow.

Think of each room in turn and consider

your family requirements, noting down

features you definitely want.

Consider also fittings such as:

• the exterior doors;

• style of door and handles;

• window catches;

• kitchen joinery and handles;

• bench top options;

• positioning of sink, oven, microwave, dishwasher and

refrigerator within the kitchen;

• bathroom fittings such as the type of vanity, shower

and bath;

• size of windows and how to capitalise on the sun;

• positioning of rooms to allow family interaction and

also quiet areas;

• whether to have a deck or patio; and

• type of seal for your driveway and paths.

Before sitting down with the designer, ensure you

have completed your research and have a clear idea

of what you want, remembering your final choices

will be influenced by your budget, size of section, and

product availability. There may also be design limitations

influenced by building regulations and construction

capabilities.

Researching and making a list will help prepare you

for the many decisions you will need to make in a short

space of time.

REAA - Understanding real estate jargon

Every industry is full of jargon and

buzzwords that make no sense to anyone

who’s not part of the club. Real estate is

no different, which means it can be hard

to get up to speed. Here’s a handy guide

to some of the most common terms

you’ll come across when buying or selling

property.

Agency agreement: If you are using

a licensed real estate agent to sell your

property, you’ll need to sign one of these

agreements - it sets out what the agent will

do and what they will be paid. Remember

you can negotiate the conditions, such as

who pays for marketing and how much

the commission is. Make sure you get

legal advice before you sign, because it’s a

binding document.

BEO or BBO: This stands for ‘Buyer

Enquiry Over’ or ‘Buyer Budget Over’,

which means that price listed on the

advertisement indicates the minimum that

the seller will accept. The seller actually

needs to give serious consideration to any

offer over the BEO, so this figure needs to

be selected carefully.

Deadline Sale or Deadline Private

Treaty: In this kind of sale, a property

is marketed for a set period (with an

advertised end date). The seller can

choose to accept an offer at any stage

during the listing period though it may be

stated in the advertising that ‘no offer will

be accepted prior’. Check the fine print.

LIM: This stands for Land Information

Memorandum, which contains everything

that the local council knows about the

property, such as any issues with drainage

and plumbing, erosion or permits. It will

help you identify if any additions haven’t

got the right consent. A LIM will also

record any unpaid rates.

Sale and purchase agreement: This

is a legally binding contract between the buyer and seller for the purchase/

sale of a property. It provides certainty

to both parties and it sets out in writing

all the agreed terms and conditions. It’s

essential to get legal advice before you

sign an agreement – and that you read

and understand what it means.

Settlement: This is the end goal in a

property transaction, when the sale and

purchase is completed by the exchange of

property and payment. Settlement occurs

when the seller receives the money for the

sale – the buyer will not receive the keys

until this happens.

RV: This stands for ‘Rateable Value’

– this is a value used to calculate local

body rates. It should not be assumed to

be a market value for a property when

it is for sale as the rating valuation may

be a number of years old. It is also not

responsive to local market fluctuations

and may not reflect any recent renovations

to a property. This was formerly known as

‘Government Value’, or GV.

Tender: If a property is for sale by

tender, prospective buyers must submit

confidential written offers by a set date.

Usually there is no minimum price, but

properties are often listed with a BEO or

BBO price. The seller can then choose

the offer that is most acceptable to them,

based on the price and any attached

conditions. The most attractive tender is

likely to be one that combines a good price

with few conditions. Sellers are allowed

to negotiate with any one or more of the

tenderers received after tenders close.

property, check out the REA free guide

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

What build requirements are there?

Explore what a new stage will look like.

Buying in a subdivision

Section availability is mostly in new

housing estates and the district generally

has a number to choose from, especially in

Rolleston and Lincoln.

Factors influencing section choice will be:

the distance from your workplace, ease of

travelling, services available, size and price

of available sections, and where you would

like to live.

Ground conditions may also be a

consideration. In Selwyn, the land

is generally good for building with

only a standard 364 foundation often

required. Many people are choosing a

RibRaft foundation as it offers seismic

strengthening and may work out more

economical.

A factor which should be high on your

list should be the covenants a developer has

in place and whether these will present any

issues for you.

Any new housing subdivision is likely

to have covenants stipulating what can

and cannot be constructed, in terms of

minimum and maximum house size on

a given section, and aesthetic features

like the roof pitch, acceptable claddings,

landscaping and what is permitted on view

from the street.

The covenants will be supplied with the

Purchase and Sale Agreement. Read these,

asking your lawyer for advice and checking

with your builder to ensure these can be

met before signing on the dotted line.

Before finalising your house plan

with your builder and building consent

application is lodged with Council, send

this and a landscape plan to the developer

for approval. This will avoid costly changes

or problems down the line. There may

be a charge associated with Developer’s

Approval or a refundable bond may be

incurred. This process is put in place to

protect the overall look and integrity of

the housing estate and ensure any damage

incurred during construction is put right.

Certain covenants may seem annoying

however, they protect the environment you

are buying into and can be accommodated

with good design.

The standard of builds in respective

subdivisions may vary from smaller

economic housing to larger sections and

homes. There may also be variations in

the features in each subdivision such as

the street width, number of children’s play

areas, walkways and beautification.

Where you are purchasing off a plan for

a section in a new stage of a subdivision,

ask questions so you appreciate what the

area will ultimately look like. Doing your

homework will help give you surety that

what is proposed will happen. This includes

when title is due, something which can be

slowed by Council consent requirements or

the weather delaying earthworks.

Closeness to schools, shops and public

transport may also be considerations,

especially if you want your children to have

independence by walk to school, a park

or sporting activities. Consider how each

subdivision might suit your lifestyle.

Consider closeness to facilities.

What parks are proposed?

Tips for first home buyers

Struggling to get on the property ladder

and feeling fed up? You’re not alone. Real

Estate Authority (REA) research has found

that more than half of all first home buyers

– even the ones who successfully buy a

property – find the process stressful and

overwhelming.

“We know it’s hard for people when

they’re trying to buy their first home – it’s a

complex legal process and a huge financial

deal. We want to empower them to feel

more confident and in control when they’re

making such a big decision.”

1. SORT OUT YOUR FINANCES

You’ll already know that saving is a big

part of getting ready to buy, but do you

know what else you need to do?

Getting financial advice from a qualified

advisor could be a useful step in your

planning. Owning a property means

you’re responsible for all the maintenance

and repairs – and for paying rates and

insurance. Owning an apartment may also

mean you need to pay body corporate fees.

These costs can be a bit of a shock to the

system if you’ve rented for a long time.

“It’s also a good idea to get conditional

pre-approved finance arranged so you can

move quickly when you spot a property

you really like. Having conditional preapproval

lets you know the price range you

can buy in and it shows agents and sellers

that you’re a serious buyer. It’s also crucial

if you’re planning to bid on a property at

auction.”

Don’t forget to explore ways that

you might be able to get help from the

Government. There are various forms of

This Week’s

assistance available if you’re a KiwiSaver

member, buying in certain areas, want

to buy a former Housing New Zealand

property or are Māori and want to live on

your ancestral land.

2. NEEDS VS WANTS

Many first home buyers discover a big

gap between what they’d like to buy and

what they can afford when they first start

looking.

“Sit down and write a tight list of what

your absolute must-haves are, then work

out what you’re willing to compromise on”.

If you’re thinking about pets and

children arriving in the short-to-medium

term, think about how these will change

your needs. Will you need to be near to

childcare or schools? Will you need a

fenced property?

“If you’re the sort of person who likes a

good list, we’ve got a useful ‘researching the

property’ checklist on settled.govt.nz that

will help you keep track of all the questions

to ask about a property. This is especially

useful if you’re looking at more than one

property at a time.”

3. DO YOUR HOMEWORK

Don’t let your desperation to find

somewhere blind you to a property’s faults.

“Do as much research as you can about

a property,” that means getting a lawyer

on board to make sure all the paperwork

is in order and to help you understand if

there are any issues. We also recommend

getting a qualified building inspector who

has professional indemnity insurance to

prepare a comprehensive report on the

property.”

If you’re worried about paying for this

kind of report before you make an offer

(due to a lack of time or funds), you can

make them a condition of your offer.

Remember that paying for good advice is

an investment that will buy you more peace

of mind than a quick once-over by a mate.

4. RECOGNISE YOUR LIMITS

Buying a ‘doer-upper’ is a Kiwi tradition,

especially for first-home buyers, but we’re

not all blessed with the right skills. Factor

this in before you make an offer on a

‘renovator’s dream’.

“Be honest with yourselves about how

much DIY you can really do, especially if

you’ve got pets and kids”.

“Getting professionals in to help will

cost more, but it will also make the process

faster. It may also be better in the long term

when it comes to selling the property if any

work has been done properly with the right

consents.”
