Gas hot<br />

water<br />

units<br />

targeted<br />

by thieves<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

THIEVES ARE stealing gas hot<br />

water systems from the exterior<br />

of homes and businesses, causing<br />

dangerous gas leaks.<br />

There has been a recent spike<br />

in the thefts, particularly across<br />

Lincoln and Prebbleton, with<br />

police being called<br />

to several incidents<br />

a week.<br />

“Timings tend<br />

to be during the<br />

hours of darkness<br />

and some victims<br />

have been targeted<br />

while they have<br />

been at home,”<br />

Ben<br />

Rutherford<br />

Constable Ben Rutherford said.<br />

Thieves generally removed the<br />

gas hot water systems – which<br />

are usually located in unsecured<br />

cabinets on the external walls of<br />

buildings – in a matter of minutes<br />

either by hand or with basic tools.<br />

Rutherford said the units cost<br />

about $1800 each to buy and<br />

install. It is believed the thieves<br />

are using the units at other<br />

dwellings, rather than breaking<br />

them down to sell for scrap.<br />

NEWS 3<br />

In Brief<br />

• By Jonathan Leask<br />

MAYOR SAM Broughton says<br />

ratepayers may end up carrying<br />

the burden of funding other<br />

councils’ infrastructure under<br />

the Three Waters reforms.<br />

The latest announcement<br />

made April 29 from Local<br />

Government Minister Nanaia<br />

Mahuta and Minister for Infrastructure<br />

Grant Robertson failed<br />

to impress both<br />

Broughton and<br />

fellow Canterbury<br />

mayor<br />

Neil Brown<br />

of Ashburton<br />

District.<br />

The ministers<br />

Sam<br />

Broughton<br />

solidified the<br />

governance<br />

structure for<br />

the proposed reforms by announcing<br />

acceptance of the<br />

majority of a working group’s<br />

recommendations, including<br />

council shareholding and cogovernance.<br />

The two mayors remain<br />

concerned their ratepayers won’t<br />

benefit from the Three Waters<br />

reforms and will instead be left<br />

to subsidise other communities.<br />

Broughton was pleased to see<br />

the Government had listened to<br />

a working group’s recommendations,<br />

but said “the benefit to<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> is yet to be proven.”<br />

“What they are trying to do<br />

for the country are things we<br />

did in <strong>Selwyn</strong> five or six years<br />

ago, so we will end up paying for<br />

lots of things that will happen in<br />

other places to begin with,” he<br />

said.<br />

Broughton criticised the<br />

“pretty broad stroke” of assigning<br />

shares based on population.<br />

“It doesn’t take into account<br />

the quality of infrastructure, the<br />

number of resource consents<br />

you hold, there is so much you<br />

can get into,” he said.<br />

What it does do, Broughton<br />

said, was confirm council ownership.<br />

Both mayors said the goal of<br />

the reforms was not the issue,<br />

rather the structure in which<br />

it was proposed was what was<br />

meeting opposition.<br />

With some greater clarity<br />

provided on the governance<br />

structure, both mayors will be<br />

keeping a close eye on the next<br />

tranche of work which will<br />

determine how the reforms will<br />

operate and how the funding<br />

model will work.<br />

Three Waters funding concern<br />

DROUGHT THREAT<br />

Brown said the latest Three<br />

Waters announcement still left<br />

more questions than answers.<br />

The main question was still if<br />

Ashburton ratepayers would be<br />

any better off, Brown said.<br />

“The ratepayers using the<br />

services, are they going to be any<br />

better off under this [reform] – I<br />

think not. The water will be the<br />

same as what it has been, but<br />

they’ll notice it in their bills they<br />

get from three waters,” Brown<br />

said.<br />

“That higher bill will then go<br />

to subsidising other communities.”<br />

Brown said from the information<br />

so far, the new entities<br />

would have a higher borrowing<br />

capacity and would double the<br />

number of staff and contractors<br />

doing the work.<br />

“The numbers don’t appear to<br />

stack up.”<br />

Brown still believed the<br />

Government needs to give<br />

the drinking water regulator<br />

– Taumata Arowai – time to<br />

settle in and give councils an<br />

indication of the scale of work<br />

they faced, before moving to the<br />

next phase.<br />

The ministers suggested the<br />

Government intends to surge<br />

forward towards the previously<br />

planned July 2024 handover.<br />

The threat of autumn drought<br />

looms in eastern <strong>Selwyn</strong>,<br />

following dry weather patterns<br />

dominating throughout the<br />

season. NIWA’s weekly Hotspot<br />

Watch released on Friday<br />

showed South Island hotspots<br />

are currently located in coastal<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> and Ashburton districts,<br />

along with parts of southern<br />

Canterbury and interior Otago.<br />

Regions experiencing significant<br />

soil moisture deficits are deemed<br />

hotspots. Persistent hotspot<br />

regions have the potential to<br />

develop into drought.<br />

HOUSE FIRE<br />

Rodents chewing through<br />

electrical wire insulation are<br />

believed to be behind a house<br />

fire at Motukarara. Occupants of<br />

the renovated villa were alerted<br />

to the fire in the roof by the<br />

smell of smoke and activation<br />

of smoke alarms. Lincoln<br />

Volunteer Fire Brigade members<br />

extinguished the blaze, about<br />

9.30pm Tuesday last week. The<br />

fire caused moderate damage<br />

through the roof and ceiling.Fire<br />

and Emergency New Zealand<br />

specialist fire investigator Bruce<br />

Irvine said the change of season<br />

to winter could see more rodents<br />

accessing roof spaces. “This is<br />

the time of year people should be<br />

baiting and preventing rodents<br />

getting into their roofs,” he said.<br />

Contractor killed in tragic loader accident<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

A HARDWORKING Tai Tapu<br />

contractor who died after being<br />

trapped under a loader has been<br />

remembered as a real character<br />

and community figure.<br />

Ralph Ogg, 71, was at his home<br />

when the tragic accident happened<br />

on April 22. He had been<br />

using the loader to shift firewood.<br />

It is believed he may have<br />

been working under the loader<br />

which had been leaking oil.<br />

A celebration of Ralph’s life<br />

was held last Tuesday at the Tai<br />

Tapu Community Centre.<br />

Ralph was remembered as “the<br />

unofficial mayor of Tai Tapu”<br />

and “a glass half-full kind of<br />

guy”.<br />

He was a great Kiwi bloke,<br />

who was a dedicated grandfather<br />

and family man. He was also a<br />

storyteller whose tales got more<br />

entertaining with every rendition.<br />

“He’s crammed 140 years into<br />

70 years,” said Tom McKay, who<br />

paid tribute to his lifelong friend.<br />

Ralph also had a highly competitive<br />

streak, which surfaced<br />

at a young age when he excelled<br />

in primary school sports at Tai<br />

Tapu and then at Lincoln High<br />

School. He took a job at the<br />

Pyne Gould Guinness office<br />

in Christchurch after leaving<br />

school.<br />

“He didn’t last long there,<br />

inside was no good to him,”<br />

McKay said.<br />

He came home to Tai Tapu<br />

to work on a farm and around<br />

the area. He thrived in his new<br />

outdoor roles, building tracks<br />

on hill country, shearing sheep<br />

and working for a transport<br />

company.<br />

Ralph took over the garage at<br />

Tai Tapu and establish his successful<br />

high profile contracting<br />

business, Ralph Ogg Contracting.<br />

He and his first wife Carolyn<br />

had three children together.<br />

Ralph became a popular character<br />

around the township, always<br />

seen out and about with his<br />

truck and his digger.<br />

Following in the footsteps of<br />

his father Stan, who helped with<br />

projects at Rhodes Park Domain,<br />

Ralph put in hundreds of voluntary<br />

hours removing trees on a<br />

digger at the domain where the<br />

Tai Tapu Community Centre<br />

was built in recent years.<br />

Family member Bob Davidson<br />

recalled community members<br />

organising for Stan’s work to<br />

be recognised with a plaque at<br />

FAMILY: Ralph Ogg<br />

(far left) with his<br />

sister Janet Mulligan<br />

and brother Jeff Ogg.<br />

Above – About 600<br />

people turned out<br />

for Ralph Ogg’s<br />

funeral at the Tai<br />

Tapu Community<br />

Centre.<br />

the domain, without Ralph’s<br />

knowledge.<br />

“He was chuffed when we<br />

showed him, he shed a tear,”<br />

Davidson said.<br />

His commitment to work was<br />

legendary. He had high expertise<br />

when it came to operating his<br />

digger, combined with his own<br />

creative approach and always<br />

getting the job done. And he always<br />

brought a sense of humour<br />

with him.<br />

Davidson said he learned a lot<br />

from Ralph about how to operate<br />

machinery.<br />

He recalled one occasion when<br />

he asked Ralph to make sure he<br />

didn’t hit an underground pipe.<br />

Ralph told him not to worry, as<br />

he had a “locator centre” on his<br />

digger. Davidson asked what that<br />

was and Ralph replied: “I just<br />

dig until I see a small jet of water<br />

shoot up.”<br />

Work also brought its challenges,<br />

and Ralph was known<br />

for the odd mishap. One of these<br />

incidents involved a chainsaw<br />

and another an angle-grinder,<br />

resulting in trips to hospital.<br />

Ralph had the same highenergy<br />

approach to sports and<br />

hobbies.<br />

He represented Ellesmere in<br />

all rugby grades, and played for<br />

the Canterbury under-18s and<br />

Canterbury Country seniors. He<br />

continued to play competitively<br />

until about 40.<br />

One of his early passions<br />

was rallying. He competed in<br />

events throughout the South<br />

Island.<br />

“But it was more than that. The value of what we could get<br />

here - three bedrooms, a double garage, so I could have<br />

my workshop, and a small garden to keep Diane, my wife,<br />

happy...well, we just knew it was the one.”<br />

There are many more reasons why Woodcroft Estate could be the<br />

right choice for you. Generously proportioned homes and a real<br />

village feel are just the start of it. Why not visit our website or call<br />

that sold us.”<br />

remembered as ‘glass half-full kind of guy’<br />

PASSIONS: Jet-boating was one of Ralph Ogg’s many pastimes. He was also called on to<br />

help with work and community projects due to his expertise in operating a digger.<br />

One event at the Ashley sprints<br />

saw him display cunning tactics<br />

to allow him and his teammate<br />

to cut a corner. They had aimed<br />

their Datsun at a pre-determined<br />

spot in the distance, allowing it<br />

to become airborne then landing<br />

on the home strait.<br />

“With this move, they picked<br />

up enough time to win the rally<br />

by a few seconds,” McKay said.<br />

Ralph was also involved in a<br />

race horse syndicate, but later<br />

swapped his share for a pub meat<br />

tray raffle prize.<br />

“And always claimed he was<br />

thousands of dollars up as a<br />

result,” McKay said.<br />

He had more success with<br />

jet-boat racing, winning events<br />

throughout the South Island.<br />

In his later years, Ralph’s<br />

passion for model yachts grew.<br />

Stepson Will Davidson said<br />

the family was thankful for the<br />

day Ralph was introduced to the<br />

relatively sedate sport.<br />

“This was Ralph’s safest hobby,<br />

he became obsessed.”<br />

He was a great family man and<br />

lit up the life of Will’s mother,<br />

Carolyn Davidson, who was<br />

Ralph’s second wife.<br />

His new family soon found<br />

out his commitment to his<br />

contracting business, supporting<br />

locals and community projects,<br />

and his sports and hobbies,<br />

was balanced with a complete<br />

lack of dedication to domestic<br />

household tasks.<br />

“He would say: ‘Don’t get good<br />

at jobs you don’t want to do’.”<br />

Will said his stepdad had been<br />

a great mentor as they worked<br />

in contracting together and<br />

helped him establish in his own<br />

business after selling him some<br />

equipment. Will said Ralph<br />

always had a smile on his face<br />

and he had a huge heart. He was<br />

also a visionary when it came to<br />

running his contracting business<br />

and doing community work.<br />

HONOUR: Ralph Ogg was “chuffed” when he found out his<br />

dad Stan had been recognised with a plaque for his work to<br />

“The hot water units are able<br />

to be reinstalled easily so can<br />

Rutherford said.<br />

Police sometimes found the<br />

businesses. He advised anyone<br />

who has had their hot water<br />

unit stolen to turn the gas off<br />

immediately and call <strong>11</strong>1 or 105<br />

to report the theft. They should<br />

also phone a qualified gas fitter/<br />

plumber to make sure there was<br />

no risk of a gas leak or explosion.<br />

He said owners of residential<br />

and commercial buildings fitted<br />

with the units should take<br />

preventative measures, such as<br />

ensuring the cabinet is secured<br />

with additional locks and installing<br />

CCTV cameras and good<br />

exterior lighting.<br />

“Doing anything that will take<br />

the offenders longer to remove<br />

the unit will deter them and prevent<br />

people in our communities<br />

becoming victims,” Rutherford<br />

said.<br />

He recommended securing<br />

the unit to the wall of the house<br />

A HORORATA resident has told<br />

drone operators their machines<br />

will be “shot out of the sky”<br />

if they are seen over private<br />

property.<br />

The resident, who did not want<br />

to be named, told the <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

<strong>Times</strong> her threat on the Hororata<br />

Community Facebook page last<br />

week was not serious.<br />

“It was just a warning,” she said.<br />

The woman was aware it was<br />

illegal to shoot at drones, just as it<br />

was illegal to operate drones over<br />

properties without the property<br />

owners’ consent.<br />

She said a friend of hers on a<br />

rural property asked her to put<br />

the general warning on Facebook.<br />

This resident, who had also not<br />

wanted to be identified, felt their<br />

property may be being scoped out<br />

by thieves when they noticed a<br />

drone flying overhead.<br />

She had also heard reports of<br />

drones over other properties.<br />

“People are getting suspicious<br />

that someone is scoping the area,”<br />

the woman said.<br />

Civil Aviation Authority rules<br />

state drone users need consent<br />

of property owners before flying<br />

above those properties.<br />

Commissioner’s decision<br />

met with disappointment<br />

• From page 1<br />

The plan was originally<br />

for 2000 homes, but the<br />

number of sections has<br />

been reduced, alongside<br />

other improvements being<br />

made, including roading,<br />

provision of additional<br />

business zones and potentially<br />

a new primary school.<br />

An initial road link<br />

through Liffey Springs<br />

has been deleted, while<br />

traffic signals will have to<br />

installed at Springs Rd/<br />

Ellesmere Junction Rd/<br />

Gerald St, seal widening<br />

undertaken on the Lincoln<br />

South connection with<br />

Moirs Lane and Ellesmere<br />

Rd and pedestrian and<br />

cycle crossing on Springs<br />

Rd installed on the Lincoln<br />

University road frontage.<br />

Many of the improvements<br />

are to be funded by the<br />

developer, and to be completed<br />

before homes are<br />

occupied.<br />

Nevertheless, many<br />

residents in the township<br />

remain opposed.<br />

Spokesperson for a group<br />

which organised a community<br />

meeting last year, Sam<br />

Elder, said she and fellow<br />

members were “extremely<br />

disappointed” to see that<br />

hearing Commissioner<br />

David Caldwell’s draft<br />

recommendation, released<br />

last week, recommends the<br />

district council approve the<br />

application.<br />

Elder said it was “a slap<br />

in the face” to the Lincoln<br />

community, which had<br />

made its opposition to<br />

Sam Elder<br />

the rezoning application,<br />

named Plan Change 69,<br />

clear by opposing it in the<br />

submissions process.<br />

There were about 255<br />

submissions to the proposal,<br />

the majority of which<br />

were in opposition.<br />

“If developers can<br />

build here, they can build<br />

anywhere,” Elder said,<br />

referring to the problems<br />

raised by submitters. These<br />

included loss of agricultural<br />

soils, flood hazard,<br />

ecological pressure, pressure<br />

on infrastructure and<br />

lack of schooling.<br />

Springs Ward councillor<br />

Grant Miller said on the<br />

basis of the commissioner<br />

having thoroughly addressed<br />

submitters’ concerns,<br />

he would be likely to<br />

support the recommendation.<br />

With regard to Lincoln<br />

losing productive agricultural<br />

land, he said while a<br />

portion of the PC69 land<br />

was considered to have<br />

“It’s a delicate trade off,<br />

and the commissioner has<br />

spent a lot of time thinking<br />

about this, it hasn’t been a<br />

rush decision,” Miller said.<br />

With regard to schooling,<br />

Miller understood Carter<br />

area should it be required.<br />

Additionally, expansion<br />

A BRIGHT red railway<br />

jigger has taken pride of<br />

place in the foyer of the<br />

district council offices in<br />

Rolleston.<br />

The 1960s jigger was<br />

unveiled at a ceremony<br />

last week and will be<br />

housed at the council<br />

offices temporarily, before<br />

eventually being moved to<br />

a permanent home in the<br />

new Rolleston town centre.<br />

<strong>May</strong>or Sam Broughton<br />

said the jigger is part of<br />

an important project that<br />

celebrates the district’s history<br />

and heritage.<br />

“Rail is a huge part of<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>’s story. Our main<br />

town, Rolleston, sits at the<br />

junction of the midland<br />

and main south lines and<br />

traces its foundation as a<br />

town to the opening of the<br />

railway terminus in October<br />

1866,” he said.<br />

“As we’ve been developing<br />

our new town centre<br />

we’ve had a focus on capturing<br />

what’s important<br />

about <strong>Selwyn</strong>’s history<br />

– and the railway is a key<br />

element.<br />

“We’ve been delighted<br />

to partner with KiwiRail<br />

to see the jigger restored<br />

and presented to the district.<br />

Eventually it will be<br />

displayed in the new town<br />

centre, near Te Ara Ātea,<br />

to recognise the district’s<br />

rail heritage and to honour<br />

the workers who built the<br />

midland and main south<br />

lines.”<br />

The jigger has been<br />

painstakingly restored by<br />

KiwiRail engineers and<br />

residents Graham Lawn,<br />

Ian Dixon and Danny<br />

Leonard.<br />

The restored jigger is<br />

Lawn’s pride and joy. He<br />

comes from a rail family<br />

and remembers travelling<br />

up and down the line with<br />

his father on the jiggers.<br />

“My dad worked in rail<br />

as a signals maintainer<br />

and both my sisters and<br />

my two sons have also<br />

worked in rail. Very soon<br />

with my service we will be<br />

celebrating 100 years in<br />

rail as a family,” he said.<br />

“That’s why when I was<br />

asked to do this project, I<br />

didn’t hesitate. It’s an icon<br />

for Rolleston, as well as for<br />

KiwiRail. I want families<br />

to be able to view the jigger<br />

and read and learn about<br />

the history of rail.”<br />

With the disruptions<br />

caused by Covid-19, it took<br />

three years for the trio to<br />

restore the jigger. Lawn,<br />

who has lived in Rolleston<br />

since 2006, is proud<br />

of the project because<br />

of the rail connection<br />

and its personal<br />

significance. Jiggers have<br />

been part of New Zealand’s<br />

history since the early<br />

days of rail, providing<br />

transport for workers<br />

undertaking track repairs<br />

and inspections.<br />

In the late 1800s jiggers,<br />

also known also as<br />

velocipedes, were operated<br />

by hand and motorised<br />

models were introduced in<br />

the mid-1900s. They were<br />

eventually withdrawn in<br />

the 1980s, and replaced<br />

by road vehicles with rail<br />

wheels fitted.<br />

This jigger was built for<br />

use on the midland line in<br />

the 1960s. It has a petrol<br />

motor with a three-speed<br />

gear box and was designed<br />

to carry four people.<br />

It carries the identity<br />

number WW7840,<br />

signifying the Ways and<br />

Works division of New<br />

Zealand Railways and<br />

showing it was the 40th<br />

jigger of that model built.<br />

The jigger sat unused in<br />

a shed at the famous Cass<br />

railway station until it was<br />

recovered in 2019.<br />

popular area.<br />

for Dairy Day <strong>2022</strong>/2023<br />

CLOSE CALL: Hunter Lowe was second in both the mallard and paradise<br />

duck calling categories.<br />

PHOTOS: JOHN COSGROVE<br />

Pitch makes perfect<br />

• By John Cosgrove<br />

A BIT of a quack or two.<br />

Contestants who managed a good<br />

mimic were on the mark when the Lincoln<br />

University Hunting Club held its annual<br />

duck calling competition at The Famous<br />

Grouse Hotel last week.<br />

Organiser Tom Whiting said the club<br />

wanted to create a bit of a buzz to get<br />

everyone excited prior to start of the <strong>2022</strong><br />

duck hunting season on Saturday.<br />

“We’ve done it on and off for the past<br />

seven years and it’s a great fundraiser for<br />

the club, as everyone has a lot of fun trying<br />

to pitch the perfect duck call,” he said.<br />

“It gives everyone a bit of the taste of<br />

what’s needed for opening weekend. After<br />

all, they’ve been waiting since the season<br />

finished last year to get back out to the<br />

lakes and rivers.”<br />

He said the large crowd offered up a lot<br />

of loud and annoying noise as they tried<br />

their hand at winning prizes for the best<br />

paradise, hen and goose calls.<br />

Whiting, a bachelor of agricultural commerce<br />

student, said he had enjoyed being<br />

a duck hunter ever since his grandfather<br />

took him on his first hunt as a 13-year-old<br />

on the banks of the Waimakariri River.<br />

“It’s being able to trick a wild animal<br />

that you’re the real thing, to get them<br />

thinking that they’re going to a safe place.<br />

“It is also pretty cool to be able to communicate<br />

with wildlife using the vocal<br />

skills that you’ve built up over the<br />

years,” he said.<br />

Reigning champion mallard and goose<br />

caller Braedyn McKenzie, of Rolleston,<br />

said the secret of a good duck call was<br />

practise.<br />

“Use your diaphragm, don’t use your<br />

mouth, just use your diaphragm and<br />

breathe deep.<br />

“A good caller should always practise,<br />

practise and practise some more, go anywhere<br />

and just practise,” he said.<br />

McKenzie loves shooting and said duck<br />

hunting was all about planning your hunt.<br />

“Go out in the days and weeks before the<br />

season opens and look at what the ducks<br />

are doing, what times of the day are they<br />

moving away or coming back. They have a<br />

rhythm, and a good hunter needs to know<br />

that,” McKenzie said.<br />

“Time behind the glass pays off.<br />

“Last year’s season started three weeks<br />

later due to Covid so there will be a lot<br />

more birds out there this season, but sadly<br />

there is also a lot more water out there<br />

compared to the last couple of years so the<br />

birds will be much more spread out, making<br />

the hunting a wee bit harder,” he said.<br />

On the night McKenzie picked up the<br />

mallard and goose calling categories,<br />

while Hunter Rowbothom snared the<br />

paradise duck section.<br />

Whiting said the judges were impressed<br />

with the competitiveness and quality of<br />

the callers entered.<br />

1 June annually marks the first<br />

day of the dairy season. Whilst<br />

many are hunkering down for<br />

winter, thousands of dairy families,<br />

sharemilkers, contract milkers and<br />

employees are moving to new farms<br />

to commence new enterprises,<br />

employment and milking contracts.<br />

Such movement of people,<br />

their possessions, livestock and<br />

machinery is a critical part of the<br />

dairy industry and is commonly<br />

known as “Dairy Day”.<br />

To ensure Dairy Day runs smoothly<br />

for all involved significant planning<br />

and preparation is undertaken in<br />

the preceding months. Therefore,<br />

despite its name, even the physical<br />

aspect of Dairy Day takes far longer<br />

than just 24 hours with farms<br />

starting the move before, during or<br />

after 1 June.<br />

Farmers need to be pre-planning<br />

early to make sure their move<br />

goes smoothly which includes all<br />

the things that go with a farm; the<br />

livestock, plant and machinery,<br />

water, consents and supplementary<br />

feed to name a few.<br />

1 June also marks the date many<br />

farms and cows are bought and<br />

sold annually. Often the farms<br />

are advertised for sale around<br />

October of each year once calving<br />

is complete. This means contract<br />

negotiation, financing, and due<br />

diligence with a clear deadline<br />

that cannot be deferred. It is<br />

often an exciting time within the<br />

dairy industry as farm owners<br />

progress their careers and realise<br />

opportunities. We encourage early<br />

contact with us so we can ensure<br />

you are in the best position to<br />

succeed.<br />

Dairy Day transactions are<br />

always multifaceted, with key<br />

considerations, not limited to, but<br />

including:<br />

• Environmental Management;<br />

• Accountancy Advice (e.g. utilising<br />

the purchase price allocation<br />

addendum, value of feed, stock,<br />

and machinery);<br />

• Transfer (and splitting where<br />

appropriate) of Water Rights and<br />

Consents;<br />

• Irrigation Share Transfers;<br />

• Due Diligence and Vendor<br />

Warranties;<br />

• Existing Leasehold Arrangements;<br />

• Employment Contracts; and<br />

• Sharemilking Contracts.<br />

Our lawyers are well practised when<br />

it comes to the transactional and<br />

regulatory requirements needing to<br />

be met. We have an excellent team<br />

of lawyers specialising in providing<br />

top service to Primary Industry<br />

clients. We are available to provide<br />

advice on Dairy Day and all farming<br />

matters.<br />

18 <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> Wednesday <strong>May</strong> <strong>11</strong> <strong>2022</strong><br />

Last week to have your<br />

say on the Annual Plan<br />

Next week is the last week to have your say on the Council’s<br />

plans for the next 12 months.<br />

Consultation on the Council’s Draft Annual Plan is open<br />

until Thursday 19 <strong>May</strong>.<br />

The majority of the proposed work plan was set in<br />

consultation with the community through last year’s<br />

Long-Term Plan 2021-2031.<br />

To deliver those services and facilities the plan proposes<br />

committing $91m to capital projects over the next 12 months – including<br />

$20.2m in water supply projects; $21.6m in wastewater projects; and $20.4m<br />

in transportation projects across our growing district.<br />

The Draft Annual Plan is a chance to check in with the community about those plans and seek your<br />

feedback on four new or changed projects:<br />

• a change in proposal for the funding of the Hororātā Community Hub,<br />

• closure of parts of the Upper Ellesmere Water Race,<br />

• changes to water race rating across the district, and<br />

• a proposal for investing in biodiversity through a $20 Ecological Enhancement targeted rate and<br />

harmonisation of Land Drainage rates.<br />

The proposed average rates increase is 6%, slightly higher than the 4.9% increase forecast in the<br />

Long-Term Plan. Since the Long-Term Plan was agreed the increase of inflation and other pressures<br />

on supply chain, changes in government legislation and an increased demand on services have<br />

increased the cost of delivering the services agreed with the community.<br />

The exact rate rise will vary for each individual property, but you can find out more examples of how<br />

the proposed rates rise would affect you in the plan or the consultation documents available online at<br />

selwyn.govt.nz/annualplan22 or at our libraries or the Council offices in Rolleston.<br />

If you own a residential home in<br />

Rolleston with a new CV of $790,000:<br />

· your rates will increase 7.5%<br />

from $3,<strong>11</strong>5 to $3,350<br />

· that’s an extra $235 a year<br />

· or about $4.50 a week.<br />

If you own a residential home in<br />

West Melton with a new CV of $975,000:<br />

· your rates will increase 5.7%<br />

from $3,300 to $3,489<br />

· that’s an extra $189 a year<br />

· or about $3.60 a week.<br />

A Taste <strong>Selwyn</strong> special:<br />

cooking demonstrations<br />

and workshops<br />

Cooking demonstrations and workshops are this<br />

year’s new special on the menu for Taste <strong>Selwyn</strong>,<br />

happening throughout the month of <strong>May</strong>.<br />

If you own a rural property in<br />

Darfield with a new CV of $<strong>11</strong>.3m<br />

(with water races and water units):<br />

· your rates will decrease<br />

from $15,019 to $14,026<br />

· that’s a decrease or $993 a year<br />

· or about $19.10 a week.<br />

If you own a lifestyle property<br />

with a new CV of $840,000:<br />

· your rates will increase 5.2%<br />

from $1,769 to $1,861<br />

Historic railway jigger unveiled<br />

at Council offices in Rolleston<br />

A bright red railway jigger has taken pride of place in the foyer of<br />

the Council offices in Rolleston, commemorating <strong>Selwyn</strong>’s rich<br />

railway history.<br />

The 1960s jigger was unveiled at a ceremony last week, jointly<br />

organised by the Council and KiwiRail. It will be housed at the<br />

Council premises temporarily, before being moved to a permanent<br />

home in the new Rolleston town centre.<br />

<strong>May</strong>or Sam Broughton says the jigger is part of an important project<br />

celebrating <strong>Selwyn</strong>’s history and cultural heritage.<br />

“Rail is a huge part of <strong>Selwyn</strong>’s story. Many <strong>Selwyn</strong> towns sit<br />

alongside the railway line. Rolleston is the junction of the Midland<br />

and main south lines and traces its foundation as a town to the<br />

opening of the railway terminus in October 1866. As we’ve been<br />

developing the new town centre we’ve had a focus on capturing<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>’s history – and the railway is a key element.<br />

“We’ve been delighted to partner with KiwiRail to see the jigger<br />

restored and presented to the district.”<br />

The jigger has been painstakingly restored by KiwiRail engineers,<br />

and local residents, Graham Lawn, Ian Dixon and Danny Leonard.<br />

The restored jigger is Graham’s pride and joy. He comes from a rail<br />

family and remembers travelling up and down the rail line with his<br />

father on the jiggers.<br />

“My Dad worked in rail as a signals maintainer, and both my sisters<br />

and my two sons have also worked in rail. Very soon with my service<br />

we will be celebrating 100 years in rail as a family,” he says.<br />

“That’s why when I was asked to do this project, I didn’t hesitate.<br />

It’s an icon for Rolleston, as well as<br />

for KiwiRail. I want families to be<br />

able to view the jigger and read and<br />

learn about the history of rail.”<br />

Jiggers have been part of rail<br />

history since the early days of rail<br />

in New Zealand, providing transport<br />

for workers undertaking repairs<br />

and inspections.<br />

This jigger was built for use on the<br />

Midland Line in the 1960s. It was<br />

withdrawn from service in the late<br />

1980s and was stored at the famous<br />

Cass railway station until it was<br />

recovered in 2019.<br />

This Saturday afternoon 14 <strong>May</strong>, unleash your<br />

own confidence in gluten-free cooking at<br />

Rolleston Community Centre, as Emma from<br />

FOG food shares how to make a range family<br />

favourite meals using local ingredients.<br />

Next Saturday afternoon 21 <strong>May</strong>, come to the<br />

Lincoln Event Centre and learn how to make<br />

delicious fresh cheese with <strong>Selwyn</strong>-based<br />

cheesemakers, The Urban Cheese Company<br />

and Charing Cross Dairy.<br />

There’s everything from pancakes to pizzas and fresh salads to try, and plenty of options for your next<br />

brunch, lunch, dinner or dessert.<br />

BACKYARD CRITTERS<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

FIVE LEARNER drivers from<br />

the district had a graduation<br />

ceremony at Te Ara Ātea last week<br />

to celebrate getting their restricted<br />

licences.<br />

The drivers, aged from their<br />

teens to their 40s, had attended the<br />

first Community Driver Mentor<br />

Programme, held by charitable<br />

organisation Proactive Driver.<br />

Chair Bill Lee said it was rewarding<br />

to see the programme making a<br />

difference.<br />

“While Proactive Driver is<br />

focused on reducing crashes, our<br />

impact in the community is far<br />

CEREMONY:<br />

Newly<br />

graduated<br />

restricted<br />

licence driver<br />

Reece Ager<br />

(left) has<br />

benefitted<br />

from the<br />

driving<br />

expertise of<br />

his mentor<br />

Leighton Hill.<br />

New drivers celebrate<br />

getting licence<br />

wider than simply prevention.”<br />

Having a driver licence was a key<br />

requirement for up to 70 per cent<br />

of jobs, yet many learner drivers<br />

could not access training or tests<br />

due to costs and other barriers.<br />

The programme matches a<br />

learner driver with a mentor.<br />

“We expect as the programme<br />

grows we will hold two graduations<br />

a year.”<br />

Senior Constable Bruce Ward<br />

spoke at the graduation.<br />

He applauded the programme for<br />

helping learner drivers avoiding a<br />

pathway of breaking the law as they<br />

faltered on meeting their licence’s<br />

criteria.<br />

OVER EASTER we camped<br />

near Wanaka and enjoyed the<br />

beautiful autumnal colours<br />

of the willows and poplars<br />

mirrored in the lake.<br />

THese trees were not only<br />

under stress from the cool<br />

night temperatures but also<br />

by an infestation of the giant<br />

willow aphid (Tuberolachnus<br />

salignus) tapping into the tree<br />

sap.<br />

These aphids, the largest in<br />

the world, are cosmopolitan<br />

in distribution and were first<br />

recorded in Auckland in 2013<br />

but rapidly spread through to<br />

most of New Zealand within<br />

a year.<br />

The aphids reach 5-6mm<br />

long when fully grown, bodies<br />

are grey to brown in colour<br />

with many rows of black dots<br />

and legs have patches of orange<br />

on them.<br />

They also have three large,<br />

raised thorn-like tubercles<br />

towards the rear, but the role of<br />

these is unknown.<br />

Some adults have two pair of<br />

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in entomology (insects<br />

and other invertebrates). Each week he introduces a new species<br />

found in his backyard at Lincoln. His column aims to raise public<br />

awareness of biodiversity, the variety of living things around us.<br />

Check out the full list of invertebrates found at www.inaturalist.<br />

org/projects/backyard-biodiversity-bugs-in-my-lincoln-section<br />

Aphids stress willows<br />

clear wings that are used<br />

for dispersal, and clouds of<br />

aphids were obvious in the<br />

evening Wanaka sky over<br />

Easter.<br />

The giant willow aphid is<br />

also found around Lincoln<br />

and in April I found a winged<br />

aphid resting on our house.<br />

Their main hosts are willows<br />

(Salix) and poplars (Populus),<br />

although a few other hosts<br />

including apples, pears, sweet<br />

briar and native mistletoe have<br />

been observed. Only females<br />

are known in New Zealand<br />

and many other parts of the<br />

world.<br />

Adults give birth to live<br />

nymphs rather than eggs,<br />

meaning that populations can<br />

grow very quickly. Females<br />

produce 35 nymphs on average,<br />

but as many as 71 nymphs have<br />

been recorded.<br />

Colonies of large numbers<br />

establish usually on the<br />

underside of branches<br />

around 2cm in diameter.<br />

When disturbed the whole<br />

colony wave their rear legs<br />

simultaneously, possibly to<br />

scare off predators.<br />

Like other aphids, this<br />

species also produces<br />

honeydew, attracting unwanted<br />

German and common wasps.<br />

Five species of ladybirds are<br />

known predators of giant<br />

willow aphids, as are silvereyes<br />

and bellbirds.<br />

A parasitic wasp has recently<br />

been introduced into New<br />

Zealand to reduce aphid<br />

populations. Only time will<br />

tell if this biocontrol agent<br />

can impact this aphid species<br />

significantly.<br />

HORORATA HAS been working<br />

on the development of a new<br />

community facility since 2017,<br />

which will provide for future<br />

generations. The need for such<br />

a facility in Hororata has been<br />

proven by two independent<br />

studies, funded by the community<br />

over the past six years.<br />

The original plan was for a new<br />

facility on the Hororata Domain,<br />

which was approved in the 2018<br />

Long Term Plan. In 2021, the<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Council downsized this<br />

project and changed the funding<br />

structure to be unworkable. Go<br />

Hororata then considered what<br />

other solutions were available<br />

to get the best outcome for the<br />

community with the resources<br />

available.<br />

Go Hororata Chair Craig<br />

Blackburn said: “What hasn’t<br />

changed is that we need a hub<br />

that will provide the community<br />

a platform to grow, share and<br />

unite. The physical buildings<br />

will give the springboard for new<br />

opportunities around the whole<br />

community.<br />

“But what become obvious in<br />

the past 12 months is that this<br />

type of hub is not possible to<br />

develop with <strong>Selwyn</strong> Council<br />

involvement. We need to be able<br />

to be flexible, to stage the project<br />

and use our wider support network<br />

to develop this hub.<br />

“Unfortunately, this is not<br />

possible to do with the <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

Council and we believe will get a<br />

better outcome for our area and<br />

the wider district developing this<br />

project as a community.”<br />

One of the priorities for<br />

Go Hororata is to protect the<br />

Hororata Museum’s collection.<br />

This is a unique and significant<br />

collection that tells the stories of<br />

the pioneers who first established<br />

the area. The current museum<br />

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz CONTENT MARKETING 21<br />

Go Hororata aims for new community hub<br />

COMMUNITY: Ceilidh at the Hororata Hall.<br />

building has degraded to a state<br />

of disrepair and the collection is<br />

now at risk.<br />

The option of repurposing part<br />

of the existing Hororata Hall<br />

for the museum was something<br />

the Hororata Historical Society<br />

and Go Hororata engaged<br />

consultants to explore, keeping<br />

in mind the wider and greater<br />

needs of the community such as<br />

space for Playcentre, meetings,<br />

events, school activities, access to<br />

technology and a place to gather.<br />

Going through this process<br />

confirmed what we already knew<br />

and painted a far bigger picture:<br />

it became obvious we needed to<br />

create a hub that connects our<br />

past, present and future surrounding<br />

the existing Hororata<br />

Hall and land.<br />

As a result, we will develop a<br />

modern, vibrant community hub<br />

that retains heritage and provides<br />

for community needs now<br />

and into the future. This hub will<br />

be centred around the existing<br />

Hororata Hall and its site. The<br />

hub will provide fantastic facilities<br />

for the community to use<br />

and be a destination for people<br />

to visit – the opportunities are<br />

endless. The very generous offers<br />

of financial support we now<br />

have and a well thought-out<br />

brief means our community can<br />

achieve this.<br />

Wednesday <strong>May</strong> <strong>11</strong> <strong>2022</strong> <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong><br />

FOCUS: The community hub will centre around the hall.<br />

The first step is to get the<br />

Hororata Hall and land back<br />

into community control. We<br />

are lucky to have the Hororata<br />

Community Trust, a charitable<br />

entity, already set up to manage<br />

this process.<br />

We already have $1 million<br />

committed to the project by a<br />

private donor. We are simply<br />

asking the Council to honour<br />

its commitment to Hororata by<br />

investing the $1 million that was<br />

allocated in the Long-Term Plan.<br />

The community will then be<br />

responsible for developing and<br />

maintaining this asset. There is<br />

no impact to rates so we really<br />

hope people right around <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

support the proposal in the<br />

Annual Plan.<br />

• Submissions for the<br />

Annual Plan close on <strong>May</strong><br />

19, <strong>2022</strong> and can be made<br />

20th Annual <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

Art Exhibition <strong>2022</strong><br />

Saturday <strong>May</strong> 21st &<br />

Sunday <strong>May</strong> 22nd 10am-4pm<br />

Rolleston Community Centre<br />

On the 21st and 22nd of <strong>May</strong> this<br />

year an exciting celebration of art will<br />

be held at the Rolleston Community<br />

Centre. The <strong>Selwyn</strong> Art Exhibition is<br />

in its 20th year and is run by the Arts<br />

Heart <strong>Selwyn</strong> Central Arts Council<br />

with the aim to encourage the<br />

enjoyment of visual arts. Local artists<br />

find a friendly low commission place<br />

to showcase their talent and allow<br />

members of the public to buy an<br />

original artwork at reasonable cost.<br />

This year the exhibition is moving to a<br />

larger space in the community center<br />

due to the increasing number of<br />

artists taking part in the event. It’s an<br />

exciting time for both the organising<br />

team and artists alike.<br />

The committee are a group of<br />

supporters and artists who get<br />

together to run the event and<br />

workshops for <strong>Selwyn</strong> people to<br />

try art and other creative pursuits<br />

themselves. Last year the new policy<br />

of art works being able to be taken<br />

home immediately once purchased<br />

was a huge success, with artists then<br />

being able to replace the work. A wide<br />

range craft, paint, and photography<br />

were on display.<br />

Rob Lawrence is a local photographer<br />

who has both exhibited and been<br />

on the organising team commented<br />

“I enjoyed working with the friendly<br />

team and will continue to help out.<br />

I urge you all, arty or not, to consider<br />

getting involved. I am looking foward<br />

to a positive future for the arts in<br />

Central <strong>Selwyn</strong>.”<br />

One more innovation is the new<br />

GOLD<br />

COIN<br />

DONATION<br />

Youth Award to be presented to an<br />

artist 25 years of age or under. “We<br />

really want to encourage artists of<br />

any age or stage in their art career<br />

to give it a go and share something<br />

they have created with the public.<br />

The exhibition is such a friendly and<br />

supportive venue to try exhibiting<br />

your art for the first time,” says<br />

Margaret White another artist and<br />

committee member who is also<br />

a guiding light of the successful<br />

support group, <strong>Selwyn</strong> Practicing<br />

Artists.<br />

Rob Lawrence is originally from USA<br />

but has lived in the Darfield area for<br />

over 38 years. Rob has been a birder<br />

all his life and a natural progression to<br />

photography in the 70’s followed. He<br />

has become more serious in the last 10<br />

years. Birds and Landscape are amongst<br />

his favorite topics. Currently B&W rural<br />

buildings and dabbling in portrait/<br />

subject work are current projects.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Parenting Week • A first for <strong>Selwyn</strong> • 16 th - 22 nd <strong>May</strong> <strong>2022</strong><br />

P<br />

arents have an incredibly special role<br />

to play within our society - they are<br />

raising our future generation. Whilst<br />

most people would agree that this is an<br />

important and at times difficult job, often the<br />

expectations the society place on parents can<br />

make their job that much more challenging.<br />

Parenting has changed over the generations.<br />

In our grandparent’s generation stress was<br />

generally about providing for children’s<br />

practical needs e.g. food and clothing. Today,<br />

parent’s stress may be caused by these<br />

practical needs but also around expectations<br />

and “getting parenting right. Parents are<br />

facing new challenges as technology<br />

develops, influences of social media and<br />

many more daily struggles.<br />

SPN has a vision for a future where parenting<br />

is highly valued, resources and supports are<br />

readily available and accessible to all, and<br />

believes it is important that <strong>Selwyn</strong> Parenting<br />

Week serves as a way to recognise the<br />

important role parents and caregivers have<br />

to play in children’s lives and highlight the<br />

amazing job they do every day.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Parenting Week will showcase<br />

the many service providers, community<br />

organisations and group that we signpost<br />

parents to. The aim is to pull together and<br />

facilitate a series of events to empower<br />

parents and caregivers from across the<br />

whole of <strong>Selwyn</strong>, including the many rural<br />

townships.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Parenting Networks “<strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

Parenting Week” brings you a range of service<br />

providers, speakers and agencies that we will<br />

be collaborating with for this inaugural week<br />

of Parenting workshops, talks and events<br />

direct to <strong>Selwyn</strong>.<br />

Our region is growing faster than ever and we<br />

feel very well placed to run this event given<br />

the longevity of our local knowledge, extended<br />

networks and our growing region of families<br />

and parents.<br />

Our advocacy to see improved services for<br />

parents and children, brought directly to<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>, is one we have been voicing for some<br />

years and we are committed to putting <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

on the map and hosting our own annual<br />

parenting week with informative and accesible<br />

resources, empowerment and upskilling to all<br />

parents, caregivers and families.<br />

PREBBLETON’S women’s<br />

rugby team secured the first win<br />

of their comeback season on<br />

Saturday, defeating Ashburton<br />

Celtic 29-15 in the Canstaff<br />

premiership.<br />

Playing in the senior women’s<br />

competition, comprising five<br />

metro and three country clubs,<br />

and for the first time in 20 years,<br />

Prebbleton’s victory was one<br />

to savour, five rounds into the<br />

schedule.<br />

Head coach Kevin Scovell was<br />

stoked after the squad endured<br />

a tough initiation against four<br />

experienced Christchurch sides.<br />

“We’ve had some tough games<br />

but each week the girls are learning,<br />

growing and getting better<br />

and better, and (Saturday’s)<br />

result showed it,” he said.<br />

“They’re just loving it. They’re<br />

just so keen to learn and soak up<br />

BACKPLAY: Midfield back Benjamin Gameson strives to make ground as Springston’s Thomas Cockburn makes a grab at<br />

the ball, while Springston wing Conner Hamlin confronts defensive attention, from Dane Lieser (left) and Harry Pringle at<br />

West Melton Domain.<br />

“Our first 20 minutes was fine,<br />

and then it all seemed to just all<br />

go to individual play after that,”<br />

said Springston coach Warwick<br />

Reid.<br />

“We let ourselves slip a bit<br />

there and in the second half<br />

[West Melton] came out nice and<br />

strong.”<br />

Springston now sit second in<br />

pool C, five points behind leaders<br />

Saracens, with a game in hand.<br />

West Melton coach Chris<br />

Fifield said in spite of loss, his<br />

what we’re giving them.”<br />

Second five-eighths Sarah<br />

Lindsay scored two tries and<br />

added two conversions in a<br />

player of the day performance.<br />

Club president Jeromy<br />

Knowler was a part of the support<br />

crowd who travelled to<br />

Ashburton to watch the side.<br />

“Gee it was great to watch.<br />

They just kept tackling and tackling.<br />

They turned the ball over<br />

and they just went for the whole<br />

game,” he said.<br />

“They’re really young for a<br />

women’s team. You notice that<br />

when they’re up against those big<br />

four in the women’s grade, but<br />

they’re just full of enthusiasm.”<br />

Each team in the competition<br />

plays each other once, before<br />

splitting into a top four, bottom<br />

squad keep putting better performances<br />

on the park each week.<br />

“We’ve improved a lot from the<br />

last few games,” he said.<br />

“When we held on to the ball,<br />

we certainly got inroads with it<br />

and our scrum was really good<br />

LANDMARK VICTORY: Prebbleton celebrated their first win of this season, their first in the<br />

senior women’s competition for two decades, after beating Ashburton Celtic.<br />

four competition.<br />

Currently sixth, Prebbleton<br />

face another top team, Canterbury<br />

University, in their next<br />

assignment on Saturday at Ilam<br />

Fields.<br />

After a two decade absence<br />

of women’s senior rugby at<br />

Prebbleton, Knowler said there’s<br />

a real buzz after Thursday night<br />

training when the entire senior<br />

… we’re pretty happy other than<br />

a few loose lineouts.”<br />

West Melton now face Lincoln<br />

in an Ellesmere round on<br />

Saturday, that has both teams<br />

searching for their first wins in<br />

the sub union competition.<br />

Tackling key to win for Prebbleton women<br />

group are having dinner together<br />

in the clubrooms.<br />

“Now to have the woman’s<br />

team in there, it adds another<br />

dimension to the club,” he said.<br />

“It’s bloody awesome because<br />

they’re a great bunch of girls,<br />

that’s for sure.”<br />

Coach Scovell can’t wait for<br />

Thursday’s session, knowing a<br />

massive round of applause from<br />

the men will come their way.<br />

“I’d really like to thank<br />

Caitlain (Blanchard) our playercoach,<br />

Steph (Broomhall) my<br />

tech adviser and Kris (Wenmoth)<br />

for West Melton to haul back<br />

Springston will go up against<br />

an unbeaten Saracens side at<br />

home, in a top of the pool clash.<br />

“It’s gonna be a big test,” Reid<br />

said.<br />

“These guys here (West<br />

Melton) came off a big loss last<br />

week, and they were up for us<br />

today. So a difference a week<br />

can make is huge, you just can’t<br />

predict it.”<br />

In other matches, Darfield<br />

trumped Prebbleton 26-19 in the<br />

repeat of last season’s semi-final<br />

in their sub union clash.<br />

“We’ve had some great games<br />

against them over the years<br />

and they’re always tight,” said<br />

Prebbleton club president Jeromy<br />

Knowler.<br />

“It’s been a long time, probably<br />

a few years since we’ve got a win<br />

up there.”<br />

Lincoln drew 19-all with<br />

Methven but stay top of pool A,<br />

Lincoln coach Bevan Sisson describing<br />

the stalemate as a game<br />

they should have won.<br />

“We lost our first -five (Thomas<br />

Keeling) in the first 20 minutes<br />

which really hurt us, he’s our<br />

go-to for kicking,” said Sisson,<br />

whose side trailed 14-7 at halftime.<br />

“The boys hung tough, we had<br />

to adjust.”<br />

Sisson was looking forward<br />

to a clash with West Melton on<br />

Saturday, where bragging rights<br />

are also on the line.<br />

HARD YARDS: West Melton’s Alex Shortus battles to make ground against Springston’s defence, Marshall van Jaarsveld<br />

gets an attacking movement flowing and Vincent Neumann makes a surge off the back of a West Melton scrum feed.<br />

“They’re pretty close mates to<br />

a lot of our guys, so they’ll want<br />

to make a statement there too,”<br />

he said.<br />

Monkey King: Race winner to useful hack<br />

WHAT BELLA Partington<br />

thought was going to be a one-off<br />

“and just a bit of fun” has turned<br />

into something much bigger.<br />

Now the 22-year-old geology<br />

student is thinking that she and<br />

two-time New Zealand Cup<br />

winner Monkey King could go<br />

all the way to the Horse Of The<br />

Year.<br />

When she’s not studying Bella<br />

is a yearling preparer at Dancingonmoonlight<br />

in North Canterbury<br />

– it’s an upmarket boutique<br />

standardbred farm owned by the<br />

Famularos.<br />

And it’s there that she first met<br />

Monkey King.<br />

She was unaware of his heroics<br />

on the racetrack where he won<br />

39 of 95 starts, amassing stakes February Bella rode him for the<br />

youngster. All she knew about I’ve always felt safe with him<br />

the black gelding is that he had and he’s taken to it so well,” says<br />

“a presence”.<br />

Bella.<br />

“He was in a paddock with 12 “He’s a kind and willing<br />

broodmares and he was special, horse,” says Famularo, “and he<br />

he had a beautiful trot and beautiful<br />

conformation.”<br />

just down the road.<br />

“It is a bit strange now not<br />

having him here though Baileys<br />

Dream is still here babysitting<br />

the young ones,” says Famularo.<br />

Baileys Dream was a milliondollar<br />

earning stablemate of<br />

Monkey King’s. Both trained by<br />

Brendon Hill at Dancingonmoonlight<br />

in the mid-2000s they<br />

were a formidable duo.<br />

Bella’s initial plan was to take<br />

Monkey King to one show – just<br />

so they could say they had done<br />

it. That happened at the <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

Equestrian Centre.<br />

“He just blew me away,” says<br />

Bella, “he won every single led<br />

section, he was best presented . . .<br />

and Reserve Champion.”<br />

Such was his prowess that<br />

Bella’s now thinking much<br />

longer-term and is already eyeing<br />

up more shows later in the year.<br />

“I also got feedback from a<br />

judge saying: ‘can’t wait to see<br />

what the future holds – see you<br />

at HOY’.”<br />

To Bella the idea that they<br />

might be good enough for the<br />

Horse Of The Year was mindblowing.<br />

“It was incredible – just the<br />

greatest compliment.”<br />

That is a long way off – HOY is<br />

not scheduled until March 7-12,<br />

2023, after this year’s event was<br />

cancelled because of Covid.<br />

There is a lot of work to be<br />

done before then.<br />

“We need to get his canter<br />

sorted,” Bella says , “his left<br />

hand rein is established but his<br />

right hand canter needs some<br />

work. Like a lot of standardbreds<br />

he is not as balanced as he could<br />

be.”<br />

“He also needs to work on his<br />

walk-trot-canter transitions.”<br />

“I just want him to be happy<br />

and enjoy doing what he’s<br />

doing.”<br />

DAYS ARE NOW shorter and<br />

nights longer, temperatures are<br />

dropping, all signs that winter<br />

is very near. A lot of tasks in the<br />

garden to be carried out before it<br />

becomes too cold and wet.<br />

Vegetable garden<br />

Continue planting traditional<br />

winter vegetables, broccoli, Brussel<br />

sprouts, cabbages, cauliflower,<br />

onions, peas, silverbeet and<br />

spinach.<br />

<strong>May</strong> is also the preferred month<br />

for sowing broad beans. To do<br />

this, enrich the soil thoroughly,<br />

add a ‘dressing’ of lime along with<br />

fresh compost.<br />

Sow the seed 10-15mm deep<br />

and 100-150 mm apart. Single or<br />

double rows can be sown.<br />

Garlic can also be planted in<br />

<strong>May</strong>; they prefer well-drained soil<br />

with generous amounts of compost.<br />

Plant the cloves 30-40mm<br />

deep and 50-60 mm between<br />

each clove.<br />

Flowering annuals<br />

Continue planting winter flowering<br />

annuals throughout <strong>May</strong>.<br />

Maintain a watch for slugs and<br />

snails that may still be operating.<br />

Winter flowers annuals to plant<br />

include alyssum, calendulas,<br />

cineraria, cornflowers, lobelia,<br />

pansies, poppies, primulas, snapdragons,<br />

stock, sweet pea, Sweet<br />

William, wallflowers, and violas.<br />

Perennials<br />

While many perennials<br />

prefer to grow undisturbed<br />

for many years, they eventually<br />

become overcrowded producing<br />

poor growth and flowering.<br />

<strong>May</strong> is an ideal month for<br />

safely dividing and replanting<br />

numerous perennials. Prepare<br />

new sites thoroughly prior to<br />

division and then swiftly replant<br />

newly divided plants into the<br />

selected sites in the garden. Any<br />

old/diseased plant mater should<br />

be disposed of.<br />

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz<br />

Strawberries<br />

The planting of next<br />

season strawberries should<br />

be completed in <strong>May</strong>. Even<br />

though there are cold winter<br />

months ahead, the earlier<br />

strawberries are planted the<br />

better the spring growth. Always<br />

plant some new varieties as well<br />

as the runners from your old<br />

strawberry plants. You can also<br />

extend the harvesting season,<br />

by planting a mixture of both<br />

early, late and day neutral<br />

varieties.<br />

FLAVOUR: It’s<br />

now time to<br />

plant garlic.<br />

Find well<br />

drained soil<br />

and plant<br />

100-150mm<br />

apart.<br />

Fruit trees<br />

The pruning of pip and stone<br />

fruit trees can begin towards the<br />

end of <strong>May</strong>. Aim to reduce the<br />

height of fruit trees to manageable<br />

levels for picking and<br />

maintenance work. Remove all<br />

inward growing branches and any<br />

‘crisscrossing’ branches. Always<br />

observe during the summer<br />

months, where the fruit are on<br />

the tree i.e., the age of the branches<br />

that produce the fruit. After<br />

Get planting before the soil gets too wet<br />

to protect young citrus trees from<br />

winter frosts with frost cloth.<br />

Rose care<br />

The flowering season is now<br />

finished, apart from iceberg that<br />

will continue blooming indefinitely<br />

it seems! It is still too early<br />

to start pruning as a warm spell<br />

will encourage immediate new<br />

growth after pruning, even in<br />

early winter.<br />

In the herb garden<br />

The herb garden is new in what<br />

can be termed ‘winter mode’!<br />

As many of our culinary herbs<br />

originated from warmer climates,<br />

they often struggle over wet, cold<br />

winter months. Plant frequently<br />

used herbs like mint, parsley, and<br />

chives in containers to improve<br />

winter performance.<br />

Lawns<br />

As temperatures drop, so will<br />

the rate of grass growth. Check<br />

for early signs of ‘wet spots’ in the<br />

lawn, that may require additional<br />

drainage before the areas become<br />

too wet. With new lawns, raise<br />

the level when mowing. On<br />

established lawns where ‘levels’<br />

may be not as required; this is<br />

the perfect time for rolling (helps<br />

flatten the ground) as the soil is<br />

moist but not too wet and minor<br />

undulations in the lawn can be<br />

‘ironed out’.<br />

Exciting coupe from BMW stable<br />

THE ONLY CARS my son has ever<br />

owned have been two door coupes<br />

– Nissan 200SX, Mazda RX7,<br />

Toyota Celica and Supra.<br />

He talks about all of them a<br />

lot but the car he has the most<br />

affection for is the Supra, that twinturbocharged<br />

six-cylinder model<br />

was ferocious, yet its ability came<br />

subdued, it was a silent beast.<br />

Of course, Supra was<br />

discontinued for many years, but<br />

when Toyota introduced its new<br />

model a year or so ago, my son was<br />

excited, and when it came time for<br />

me to evaluate it I had to take him<br />

for a long drive in that beautiful,<br />

sleek and dynamic sports car.<br />

One of the things that makes<br />

today’s Supra so exciting is its<br />

powerplant, the 3-litre unit shares<br />

the same concept as the original –<br />

turbocharging and six-cylinders.<br />

However, it’s not Toyota’s engine, it<br />

comes out of the BMW factories, as<br />

does much of the new Supra, it has<br />

been built in a collaborative way<br />

between the two companies. It’s a<br />

concept that works well, Toyota did<br />

it with Subaru with the 86, and the<br />

Supra project has resulted in a very<br />

desirable sport coupe.<br />

Of course, the BMW engine is<br />

also used in a lot of other BMW<br />

product including the 440i Gran<br />

Coupe which this evaluation<br />

focuses on.<br />

Not only does the 440i stand out<br />

for its driveline, it has an aggressive<br />

shape that can only be described<br />

as outright desirable. The 3-Series<br />

is my favourite BMW car line, the<br />

440i is effectively a 3-Series coupe,<br />

even though its nomenclature<br />

would suggest otherwise.<br />

Electric models aside, the<br />

4-Series is available as a coupe/<br />

liftback or convertible, the 440i<br />

four-door is priced at $129,900<br />

depending on specification, a<br />

420i four-cylinder variant lists at<br />

$81,900.<br />

The 440i, though, is a real honey,<br />

the smooth six-cylinder surge is<br />

something rather special. BMW<br />

rates the double overhead camshaft<br />

unit at 275kW with a stunning<br />

500Nm of torque landing all the<br />

way from 1850rpm. The result<br />

is a strong flow of power from<br />

idle through to redline, and that<br />

is something we have come to<br />

expect from BMW, the company<br />

has a reputation for building<br />

performance cars and the 440i<br />

is no exception. It will launch to<br />

100km/h from a standstill in 4.7sec<br />

and I would strongly suspect it<br />

would be limited to a 250km/h top<br />

speed.<br />

Drive is transmitted through a<br />

silky smooth eight-speed automatic<br />

gearbox and into BMW’s xDrive<br />

system, the latter, put simply,<br />

is a four-wheel-drive network,<br />

although it must be said that drive<br />

is well proportioned towards the<br />

rear.<br />

Drive is forceful, the engine<br />

reacts solidly to throttle request<br />

ELEGANT: The BMW 440i has a four-door body in a<br />

coupe-type style..<br />

BMW 440i: Choice of coupe or convertible with four or six-cylinder power.<br />

providing instant acceleration and<br />

a flow of power, and sound, which<br />

is tantalising.<br />

That feel is transmitted<br />

throughout the entire car, not only<br />

is it exciting in terms of power<br />

flow, the 440i handles like a coupe<br />

should. It has impeccable manners<br />

with high grip levels and a feel at<br />

the steering wheel that is natural,<br />

yet involving.<br />

The 440i sits on high<br />

performance, 20in Good Year<br />

rubber, the tyres are wider at the<br />

rear than they are at the front<br />

(245/35 and 255/35). There is little<br />

likelihood of the traction loss at<br />

any point in a corner. BMW has<br />

engineered the best electronic<br />

traction and stability control<br />

devices into the 440i and they<br />

instantly counteract any wayward<br />

behaviour, but such are the high<br />

grip levels it is never much of a<br />

likelihood.<br />

I took the test car west on my<br />

favourite inland road, a mixture<br />

of tight and flowing corners, with<br />

good distance between corners the<br />

driver is offered a host of varying<br />

conditions.<br />

The 440i was in its element<br />

on the high country run, it is a<br />

genuine touring car and one that<br />

delights with its ability. It can be<br />

forced into corners quickly, but<br />

taking a smooth approach is by<br />

far the best, it rewards with its<br />

balance and directional stability,<br />

it is quick to react to directional<br />

changes.<br />

• Price – BMW 440i,<br />

$129,900<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

4783mm; width, 1852mm;<br />

height, 1442mm<br />

• Configuration – Sixcylinder,<br />

four-wheel-drive,<br />

2998cc, 275kW, 500Nm,<br />

eight-speed automatic<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 4.7sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 8.2/100km<br />

With the forceful flow of power<br />

out of a corner, speed is ushered in<br />

quickly, thanks to the turbo boost<br />

and associated torque flow.<br />

Not only does the 440i reward<br />

the driver with its high-speed<br />

capability, it is also the everyday car<br />

which does its best to look after the<br />

occupants.<br />

The cabin is plush and the seats<br />

are formed brilliantly to contain<br />

the body. Seat adjustment is vast,<br />

there are several applications to<br />

suit the driver and most are done<br />

electrically. There are also heated<br />

seats for when winter bites.<br />

Other features include head-up<br />

display, satellite navigation, electric<br />

sunroof, paddle-shifters, automatic<br />

stop-start, Harman Kardon audio<br />

and comprehensive infotainment<br />

network.<br />

As part of the on-screen displays,<br />

the 440i has vast trip computer<br />

and fuel usage readouts, bearing in<br />

mind there is an economical drive<br />

mode if the driver wishes to select<br />

them through a console-mounted<br />

switching system. Sport modes<br />

can also be ushered through the<br />

same system, the latter not only<br />

initiates a wonderful exhaust howl<br />

and bark, but suspension firming is<br />

done automatically.<br />

Against BMW’s 8.2-litre per<br />

100km combined cycle claim sat<br />

a real-time 9l/100km figure and a<br />

6.4l/100km instantaneous figure<br />

travelling at 100km/h on the<br />

highway with the engine turning<br />

over relaxed at just 1400rpm.<br />

How BMW make this engine<br />

so relaxed yet so forceful is a<br />

constant source of amazement,<br />

the 440i is a car for those who<br />

want everyday relaxation in their<br />

travel, yet know that there is power<br />

in abundance for the highway<br />

overtake and for speed when<br />

conditions allow.<br />

As much as the 440i Gran Coupe<br />

excites through the driveline, and<br />

would certainly tempt my son<br />

and me if finances were available,<br />

BMW is also fully aware the world<br />

is viewing petrol-powered cars with<br />

much uncertainty.<br />

That being the case, fully<br />

electric vehicles from the German<br />

factories are trickling through<br />

down under, the iX is scheduled<br />

into my diary soon. I’m looking<br />

forward to that experience, from<br />

what I’ve read, that dynamic sport<br />

utility vehicle is something quite<br />

extraordinary.<br />

What to ask a real estate agent<br />

Selling a home is a big life decision, both<br />

financially and emotionally. The journey<br />

can be a roller coaster, which is why<br />

finding a licensed real estate agent you feel<br />

comfortable with is so important.<br />

“Remember, you’re looking for the<br />

person who you’re going to trust to sell<br />

what’s likely to be your biggest asset. Their<br />

success (or failure) will have a marked<br />

impact on your new life plan,” says the<br />

Real Estate Authority (REA).<br />

New Zealand has about 15,000 real<br />

estate agents who help people navigate<br />

big-deal transactions every day.<br />

“The trick is to find the one that will be<br />

best for your situation,” he says.<br />

If you’re going to get the best out of your<br />

real estate agent – and they’re going to get<br />

the best price and conditions for your<br />

property – then you need<br />

to put the work in before<br />

you sign with anyone. That<br />

means basing your decision<br />

on more than gut feel or the<br />

fact that their office was easy<br />

to park outside.<br />

You need someone who<br />

understands what it takes<br />

to sell a property like yours<br />

and a proven track record to<br />

show for it. You also need<br />

to feel comfortable with<br />

them personally – if<br />

you don’t find them<br />

pleasant to deal<br />

with then buyers<br />

may not enjoy<br />

the experience either.<br />

If you’re not sure how to get the ball<br />

rolling, ask the agent the following<br />

questions:<br />

- What do you know about my<br />

neighbourhood? How are sales in this area<br />

and who is buying?<br />

- Do you work independently or with<br />

other agents?<br />

- What kind of advertising or marketing<br />

do you use – and which ones will work for<br />

my property? What extra marketing costs<br />

will I have to pay?<br />

- What are your commission rates? Are<br />

you open to negotiation?<br />

- Do you have testimonials or references<br />

from people whose properties you have<br />

sold in the last three months?<br />

- What do you recommend I do to<br />

prepare my home for sale?<br />

- Why should I hire you?<br />

Asking these questions helps you<br />

form a picture of the agent’s experience,<br />

knowledge and how they structure their<br />

business.<br />

These days you’d expect an agent’s<br />

marketing plan to have an online focus<br />

that includes major property websites and<br />

social media. Find out what the marketing<br />

plan will cost and ask them to explain<br />

their rationale – you’re the one paying for<br />

this service, after all.<br />

Remember that you can negotiate on<br />

the marketing costs and commission –<br />

don’t be afraid to ask the agents if they<br />

are interested in an incentive-based<br />

commission, where they will earn more<br />

commission if they sell your property<br />

above a certain price.<br />

Once you’ve found the agent you think<br />

you’d like to work with, check them out<br />

on the Real Estate Authority’s (REA)<br />

online public register, which will tell you<br />

if the agent holds a current licence. This is<br />

important because it’s illegal to carry out<br />

real estate agency work without a licence<br />

and if you deal with an unlicensed person<br />

the REA will be unable to help you if<br />

things go wrong.<br />

When you’ve decided on an agent, the<br />

terms and conditions of your contract will<br />

be set out in an agency agreement that<br />

you both sign. This is a legal document,<br />

so make sure you get advice from a lawyer<br />

and that you understand your rights and<br />

responsibilities.<br />

Your guide to all things Real Estate<br />

in the <strong>Selwyn</strong> District<br />

Show home full of surprises<br />

17<br />

The Compass-built show home<br />

in Acland Park is full of surprises<br />

with features that are not only<br />

stunning but also practical to<br />

the flow of the home. Even the<br />

layout of the Archenar 205 home<br />

is different with a large selfcontained<br />

principle bedroom,<br />

ensuite and walk-in wardrobe next<br />

to the front door, differentiating it<br />

from the other two bedrooms.<br />

The U-shaped design opens<br />

out onto a 35 square metre wrap<br />

around kwila deck with retractable<br />

corner sliding door off the family/<br />

dining area. This completely<br />

opens up the space and brings<br />

the outside in without needing a<br />

support.<br />

A separate living room can be<br />

open or closed with space-saving<br />

cavity doors from the family room<br />

and, again, more opportunity to<br />

open out to the spacious deck<br />

through sliding doors.<br />

Another feature within these<br />

spacious living areas is a dining<br />

area with stunning tropical wall<br />

paper to separate it from the<br />

rest of the room, and a long<br />

study nook that can be used for<br />

homework or working from home.<br />

Features in the kitchen include<br />

a large pantry and a cleverly<br />

hidden in-built extraction fan in<br />

the cupboards above the stove and<br />

a ceiling-mounted heat pump that<br />

can heat or cool the entire living<br />

area from its central location.<br />

There is also a spacious laundry<br />

and a separate toilet.<br />

Compass Homes offers more<br />

than 123 different designs for their<br />

houses, with a huge selection of<br />

cladding and roofing to achieve<br />

the customised look you would<br />

like for your new home. Options<br />

include metal tile, long run iron,<br />

brick, weatherboard and plaster.<br />

The Compass Homes team<br />

really enjoys working with clients<br />

to ensure that their new abode<br />

provides liveable and practical<br />

solutions to suit everyone’s needs,<br />

creating a welcoming design that<br />

is future proofed for the years<br />

to come. With their thorough<br />

design and budgeting process their<br />

quotations are accurate within five<br />

per cent.<br />

With a floor area of 204 square<br />

metres the Acland Park show<br />

home in Kate Sheppard Drive<br />

is open from 12pm until 4pm<br />

Fridays to Sundays. Do pop in.<br />

Four things you MUST<br />

do before buying a home<br />

Buying a home is a big deal. It’s likely to be the most expensive thing you buy, and it can be a complicated legal<br />

process. It’s even tougher in a hot market, where there is a lot of competition for a limited number of properties. It<br />

might be tempting to take a few shortcuts, but failing to do things properly could cause more problems later.<br />

Here are our top four tasks for home<br />

buyers.<br />

1. Research the property<br />

The real estate agent selling the property<br />

acts on behalf of the seller, however they<br />

are also required to tell you everything<br />

they know about the property. They<br />

must respond professionally to all your<br />

enquiries and not withhold any details.<br />

Remember that you still need to do<br />

your own due diligence. That means<br />

getting a title search so you can find<br />

out all the facts about the property’s<br />

ownership, boundary and access, as<br />

held by Land Information New Zealand<br />

(LINZ). It’s a good idea to get a Land<br />

Information Memorandum (LIM),<br />

which shows information held by the<br />

local council about the property and<br />

land. For valuable feedback on the<br />

property’s condition, get a report done<br />

by an inspector who has professional<br />

indemnity insurance and carries out<br />

their work in accordance with the New<br />

Zealand Property Inspection Standard.<br />

Although this all costs money, it will<br />

save you more in the long term. Sellers<br />

may occasionally provide some of this<br />

information for you. If this happens,<br />

check that it is up-to-date.<br />

2. Get legal advice<br />

Buying property is expensive, and it<br />

can cost even more if something goes<br />

wrong. That’s why it’s important to get<br />

legal advice before you sign anything.<br />

A lawyer will handle all the paperwork<br />

involved in the process, including the<br />

title search, and offer impartial advice.<br />

If you don’t have a lawyer, the New<br />

Zealand Law Society can help you find<br />

There are several methods of buying and<br />

selling property, for example, tender or<br />

auction. It’s important to understand the<br />

process for the property you are buying.<br />

Practices can vary between agencies<br />

so make sure you confirm details with<br />

The sale and purchase agreement is your<br />

contract with the seller. It is crucial to<br />

read it very carefully and get legal advice<br />

before you sign. You can negotiate the<br />

terms and conditions of an agreement,<br />

but once you sign it, there’s no going<br />
