JUBILATION FOR DARFIELD

A new club will be inscribed on

Ellesmere Rugby Sub-Union’s

coveted Coleman Shield after

Darfield pipped Prebbleton

27-26 in Saturday’s decider.

Centre Toby Kars scored in

the final minute at a wet and

murky Darfield Domain and

then Alister Collins, in his 50th

game for the side, eventually

added the extras in controversial

circumstances. The successful

conversion prompted wild

scenes as Darfield prevented

Prebbleton winning the trophy

for the first time since 1974.

chases

youths

after car

break-in

• By Susan Sandys

A PREBBLETON resident took

chase after two youths as they

broke into his car, nabbing a

cellphone he hopes will identify

the suspects.

Mike Morton was outside

trying to spot a meteor in Friday

night’s meteor shower, but instead

he spotted the alleged theft

under way.

It was one of a spate of car

break-ins and thefts in and

around Prebbleton, incidents into

which police had made no arrests

as of Monday afternoon.

Police said one car was stolen

from Prebbleton overnight Friday,

with at least another three

vehicles broken into.

“Inquiries are ongoing to determine

the circumstances,’’ a police

spokesperson said.

The Prebbleton Facebook

community page shows about 10

vehicles were damaged, mostly

in the early hours of Saturday

morning. Posts also suggest up to

four youths may be responsible.

New flyover plan draws

MORE THAN 700 people have

submitted in the second round

of consultation on the proposed

$125 million Rolleston flyover

plan.

New Zealand Transport

Agency Waka Kotahi will report

on the feedback within the next

three months, before finalising

its business case and beginning

detailed design.

The first step in construction

will be a Dunns Crossing Rd/

Walkers Rd roundabout in 2024,

as this needs to be up and running

so traffic can safely cross

State Highway 1 at this point before

construction of the flyover

begins.

Construction of the flyover

itself will begin 2026, and be

completed in 2028.

The first round of consultation

in July and August last year drew

about 980 responses. Waka Kotahi

consequently went back to

the drawing board, and released

the new flyover plan, this time

with its bridge being straight

across, rather than skewed, over

State Highway 1.

The more than 700 submissions

this time round, which

were received before the closing

date of July 22, suggests Selwyn

residents have plenty to say

about how Waka Kotahi can

improve its new plan further.

While the new plan has found

favour with many, including

Mayor Sam Broughton, it

has also attracted opposition.

This includes from people at

the neighbouring Jones Rd

businesses of Christchurch RV

Centre and Drummond and

Etheridge.

Rolleston branch manager

Murray Chesterman said Waka

Kotahi would most likely be

premises, although this had not

He did not support the new

It was a two-handled cup with

about 25cm tall, with winners’

names engraved on it,

“It has years of history in terms

of engraved winner’s names, so is

of significant sentimental value to

Medium density housing a step closer

• By Susan Sandys

NEW PLAN change areas

at Rolleston, Lincoln and

Prebbleton are being included

in medium density zones as new

housing intensification rules are

introduced.

The district council will soon

ask residents what they think

of the new rules being included

in its proposed district plan, as

they become mandatory under

the Resource Management (Enabling

Housing Supply and Other

Matters) Amendment Act 2021.

Rolleston, Lincoln and

Prebbleton are set to be transformed,

as the new rules will

allow land owners to build three

three-storey homes per residential

section without resource

consent.

This includes on hundreds

of hectares of land in new plan

change areas as developers

rezone blocks within and outside

of current town boundaries.

The new Enabling Housing

Supply legislation has put the

district council in a complex

situation, as it grapples with

large numbers of plan changes

made possible under another

piece of new legislation, the

National Policy Statement for

Urban Development 2020.

Both have been introduced by

Government within the last two

years as it aims to increase housing

supply.

“It’s not our fault, we are meat

in the sandwich,” said councillor

Mark Alexander as councillors

discussed notifying the proposed

district plan variation at their

fortnightly meeting last week.

“It looks extremely developer

led, it embeds business as usual.

We have got a massive risk of

consultation fatigue, the perception

of acting in bad faith and

increasing distrust,” said fellow

councillor Sophie McInnes.

“Unfortunately we are being

pushed with the (two pieces of

legislation) in directions which

we did not intend, and we are

not the authors of our own demise,”

councillor Malcolm Lyall

said.

Councillor Debra Hasson

moved a recommendation that

would have seen the district

council seek clarification from

the Minister for the Environment

as to how they should

proceed in the “unique situation”

it was in. But after much discussion,

the motion was lost.

Some of the councillors also

talked about the benefits of intensification

and the importance

of developing medium density

areas in the right way.

Nicole Reid said intensification

was needed to have viable

public transport. Issues with

medium density development in

areas such as Auckland had been

well; however, the Ministry for

the Environment had now issued

a guide.

Hasson asked if open space requirements

in plan change areas

could be expanded to cater for

medium density development.

Team leader strategy and

policy Robert Love suggested it

could be better to retrospectively

upgrade open space areas as part

of financial contributions from

developers, as the new legislation

only enabled medium density

and did not dictate that it would

happen.

The district council plans to

notify the variation on August 20.

After that, the public will

have 20 working days to make

submissions. Hearings will be

conducted by an independent

hearings panel, which will make

recommendations to the district

council on whether to adopt the

variation. The decisions will then

be released, and there will be no

right of appeal.

Lincoln Voice

lodges appeal

LINCOLN residents opposed

to the Plan Change 69 Lincoln

South 1710-section development

are lodging their appeal against

the plan change today.

New housing intensification

rules could hypothetically see

Lincoln South have up to three

times more homes than initially

planned, however this is unlikely

as Carter Group wants to keep it

as a low density development.

Lincoln Voice spokesperson

Denise Carrick

said this commitment

from Carters was at least

some small comfort that

multiple dwellings of

multiple storeys would

not be constructed on

what is now rural land.

“Nevertheless, Lincoln Voice

will continue with our appeal

to the Environment Court, as

whether 1700 or 5100 houses occupy

the land, the irreversible loss

of scarce, highly productive soils

remains,” Carrick said.

The appeal would be lodged

today, prior to the closing date

tomorrow. As of Monday, Lincoln

Voice had raised $11,276 towards

its overall goal of $150,000 to

Carter Group director Tim

Carter has given an assurance

the 1710-section subdivision will

be restricted to one dwelling per

section.

He said Carter Group’s vision

for Lincoln South was to be “the

low-density area of Lincoln.”

“The medium density housing

provisions, in our view,

will potentially change the

character of everywhere

in Lincoln except Lincoln

South,” Carter said.

The specific conditions

of PC69 mean it can not

without an Integrated

However, Carter Group has no

Morton said he heard voices

while standing at the side of his

midnight. He walked to the front,

and shouted “Oi” as he saw the

offenders.

He ran as fast as he could after

them for about 100m, along

Central Ave, into Pointsman Pl,

to the vicinity of the Prebbleton

skate park.

“It was just one of those spur

He went back to get his car,

which had been parked on

the street outside his home. In

the middle of the road, where

by smashing the rear triangle

window, as this was broken.

Morton drove around Prebbleton

in the car to try and locate

the pair, but was unsuccessful.

He said he was not sure what

he would have done if he had of

caught them, although thought

maybe he could have sat on one

of them and phoned the police.

He said he and his wife reported

the incident to police shortly

afterwards as he returned home.

He estimated the pair were

aged 15 to 18, and were of slim to

medium build. The one he had

got closest to was about 173cm,

wearing a grey top and black

shorts.

Morton is no stranger to keeping

an eye out for criminals, having

been a volunteer for the City

to Sumner Community Watch

Patrol when he lived in Christchurch.

During the 10 years that

he belonged to the group, he said

he had never before come across

someone in the act of breaking

into a vehicle.

He said it was sad to see youth

criminals, probably from outside

the area, coming into Prebbleton

and rampaging through the

town as they had done on Friday.

Prebbleton was a lovely community,

which was one of the

reasons he and his family had

moved there in the first place.

“It’s horrible, at the moment we

are a reasonably small township,”

Morton said.

Study finds nitrate

• By Susan Sandys

SPRINGSTON resident Mike

Glover is helping researchers

discover whether rising nitrate

levels are a risk factor in

premature births.

Glover has organised an

event for Wednesday next week,

Community Nitrate Testing,

where Selwyn

residents on

private wells are

invited to bring

along a drinking

water sample and

pay $10 to have it

tested.

He said those

getting their

water tested can

have the results included as part

of a new study being undertaken

by Otago University if they wish.

The names and addresses of

the participants would not be

recorded, only the nitrate level

of the water sample and general

area it had been sourced

from.

The university researchers

plan to create a national database

of contaminants in drinking

water in New Zealand for the

first time. They received a $1.2

million grant for the research

after mounting evidence from

overseas suggested nitrate was

linked to pre-term births.

“It needs more study, and the

problem with a lot of private

wells in New Zealand, there’s no

database, it’s up to individual

people to get their testing done,”

Glover said.

He himself was on a private

well, where nitrate levels had

skyrocketed in recent years, from

0.5mg per litre to 5mg per litre.

“That’s a bit scary for me,”

Glover said.

While the level remained

Glover

lower than New Zealand’s

official Maximum Acceptable

Value of 11.3mg per litre, the

upward trajectory concerned

him. And levels at much lower

than the MAV – in fact as low

as 1mg per litre – had been

associated with bowel cancer

risk in previous research.

Nitrate contamination is

mainly driven by pastoral

farming. The most affected

parts of New Zealand are those

with intensive agriculture,

such as Canterbury and

Southland. Nitrates leaching

into groundwater, from dairy

farming in particular, has

increased substantially since

1990.

Glover said the Community

Nitrate Testing day was being

supported by New Zealand

Federation of Freshwater

Anglers, which was providing

the testing equipment. The $10

cost was to cover expenses.

Call for council to avoid

chlorination of water

• By Susan Sandys

A GROUP of residents is calling

for the district council to avoid

chlorination of drinking water.

The district council is undertaking

a $2 million upgrade

of supplies with chlorination

equipment, as it strives to meet

the requirements of the Water

Services Act 2021.

The act requires all councils

to be able to chlorinate public

drinking water supplies, and

begin chlorination by November

15, unless they have an exemption

from the Government’s

new drinking water regulator

Taumata Arowai.

Residents Kerry Willis and

Heather Morten talked to district

councillors in the public forum

section of their fortnightly meeting

last week. They said they had

more than 900 signatures on a

petition against chlorination.

Willis claimed that while

chlorine was the cheapest form

of disinfection, it did not kill all

micro-organisms and had health

and environmental affects.

“Chlorine-free drinking

water has been achieved in the

Netherlands and Denmark as

their residents place high value

on chlorine free water,either due

to health concerns or because the

source is already high quality.

Therefore where we have high

quality sources we should make

Wednesday August 3 2022 Selwyn Times

an effort to keep them as natural

as possible,” he said, reading

from a letter by the group to

district councillors.

While the district council was

bound by the regulations, it also

had an obligation to protect the

well being of its community, he

said.

“We really need central government

to hear our voices and

that we do not want chlorination

in our water.”

Morten said many people had

chosen to live in Selwyn because

of its “beautiful water.” People

would not only be drinking

chlorine, but breathing it in and

absorbing it through their skin

while showering and bathing.

Her organic vegetable garden

would no longer be organic, as it

would have chlorine put onto it

through watering.

Taumata Arowai was established

in accordance with

a recommendation from a

Government inquiry into the

2016 poisoning of at least 5000

Havelock North residents from

contaminated water. The contamination

was connected to the

death of four of the residents.

Mayor Sam Broughton

told Willis and Morten the

district council was applying

for exemptions. Staff would be

updating district councillors on

the chlorination issue.

WHITECLIFFS area residents

are fundraising to restore a

140-year-old school building to

its former glory.

South Malvern Community

Charitable Trust has repointed

chimneys and installed new

weatherboards at the former

South Malvern School, which

operated from 1883 to 1960.

Chair Liz Weir said the building

was structurally sound and

had survived the February 22,

2011 earthquake, but had suffered

water damage over many

years as it fell into disrepair.

The category 2 Heritage New

Zealand building was important

to Whitecliffs, as it represented

a significant period in the area’s

industrial history.

Two years ago, a local family

who wants to remain anonymous

bought the property on

behalf of the community. Once

completed, it will be a community

hall and civil defence hub.

Weir said it had been difficult

to fundraise during the pandemic.

The long-term goal was

to renovate the whole building,

including the interior.

Local tradespeople had volunteered

their time and expertise,

timber and roofing companies

had provided discounted materials,

while the district council and

Fonterra had given grants. However,

more funds were needed to

buy building materials.

“We are chipping away at

things as we fundraise money.

Our current focus is raising

enough money for a new set of

weatherproof doors that will

meet current regulations but still

retain the heritage aesthetic,” she

said.

The target for the doors was

$7000.

Single mum sets up

support network

Wednesday August 3 2022 Selwyn Times 13

• By Susan Sandys

STRUGGLING as a

single parent gave Emma

McGilchrist an idea.

The Dunsandel mum

of four children, aged 12 to

16, started Helping Hand,

a free social service to

help others.

“When I

became a

single parent I

realised how

hard life can

actually be,” McGilchrist

said.

Finding herself with no

family support after her

marriage breakdown and

moving from the North

Island in 2018, she had set

about rebuilding her life.

“I had to buy a car as we

were left with no vehicle, I

had to get a loan to move

the children and myself to

the South Island. I had to

start from the bottom and

work my way upwards,”

she said.

“I realised how alone I

actually was, there was no

one to help me, no one to

offer support, no one to

help with appointments,

no one to help me with

HELPING:

Emma

McGilchrist,

with her son

Thomas.

anything. Everything

was on me.”

McGilchrist estimated

she had helped more than

20 people in Dunsandel,

Leeston, Rolleston and

Christchurch since

establishing Helping Hand

about two years ago.

She hosts a coffee group

most weeks from her

Dunsandel home, where

people drop in for a chat.

“I want people to know

that when things are tough

or if you need something or

someone that I am here.”

She also helps people

by picking up groceries

or medications, doing

odd jobs for them,

making appointments

for them, distributing

donated items such as

kitchenware and school

uniforms, and giving

out small food parcels

she makes up herself on

her modest income as a

student and part-time

cleaner. McGilchrist is

studying psychology and

counselling.

Recently, her son

Thomas Roe had made

her proud by becoming

a member of the Selwyn

Youth Council.

“It’s trickling down

the family, the giving to

others,” she said.

McGilchrist urged

anyone wanting to get

in touch do so via her

AN AMBITIOUS farmers’

collective at Ellesmere will be

celebrating successes of the past

year at its upcoming annual

meeting.

Ellesmere Sustainable Agriculture

Inc chair Tim Chamberlain

said the collective and its associated

Project Tinaku had made

huge strides across the area,

increasing biodiversity, enhancing

the natural environment,

upskilling and supporting farmers,

educating young people and

providing employment.

He was expecting a big turnout

of local farmers to the AGM

on Monday next week, 7pm, at

Lakeside Soldiers Memorial Hall

in Leeston.

“ESAI and Tinaku have gone

from strength to strength, and

developed from a modest catchment

group to an influential

farmers collective that is making

an impact far beyond the district’s

boundaries,” Chamberlain

said.

“We have always been an

ambitious group with a strong

vision, but even in our wildest

dreams, we could not have expected

how many people would

benefit from our work in just a

few years,” Chamberlain said.

Project Tinaku, now in its

third year, was established with

a $2.2 million grant from the

Ministry of Primary Industries’

jobs for nature programme.

In the last year alone, it has

provided primary and secondary

employment for more than 35

people.

“Employment has occurred

directly through staff working

on the project, as well as local

contractors that have been employed

to carry out restoration

work, fencing and weed control,”

Chamberlain said.

The project had also increased

its sponsorship of Ellesmere

College students, from six to

10 students, to gain expertise

and knowledge to pursue

employment in the agriculture

sector through the gateways

programme.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

“What has been really amazing

is to see many of the gateway

students finding work with ESAI

members and other rural businesses

in the area, which fulfils

both our education and employment

objectives,” Chamberlain

said.

At primary school level, the

project has been partnering with

Te Ara Kakariki to run kids

discovery plant out days and biodiversity

monitoring field trips

with both Southbridge School

and Leeston Consolidated

School.

The planting trips had been

a “wonderful addition” to the

extensive restoration projects

Tinaku had been working on

over the past two years. About

25,000 natives had been planted

across 39 sites on 25 members’

farms in 2021 alone. These projects

cover around 5ha of land

along nearly 7km of waterways.

ESAI this year received additional

funding to survey its

members to better understand

their individual situations and

uncover common threads and

trends. Results showed where

members wanted to improve

their skills and knowledge, and

as a result there were 13 events

which included topics such as

financial advice and succession

planning, chainsaw safety and

Rates accounts and

payment options

Rates invoices for the period 1 July 2022 to 30 September 2023

should have arrived in your letterboxes or inboxes.

You can check out the changes in your rates, by visiting

selwyn.govt.nz/rates and clicking on property search.

WANT TO VOTE?

CHECK YOU’RE ENROLLED

Local elections are coming up in October and the deadline for checking you’re enrolled to vote is

coming up soon.

Selwyn residents 18 or older and who are a New Zealand citizen or permanent resident are eligible to

vote, if they are enrolled on the parliamentary electoral roll.

But you need to make sure your enrolments details are correct by Friday 12 August.

Everyone on the electoral roll should have received an enrolment pack from the Electoral Commission

last month. If your details were correct – then you don’t need to do anything.

If you haven't received an enrolment update pack in the mail by now it may mean you’re not enrolled,

or your details are not up to date. This could be because you’ve recently moved into the district,

changed addresses, or have turned 18 – and you’ll need to update your details. To enrol or update

your details, visit vote.nz or call 0800 36 76 56.

You can also check a copy of the preliminary electoral roll at the Council offices or any Selwyn library,

as well as the Arthur’s Pass Store, Dunsandel Store, or Tai Tapu Store.

If you miss the 12 August deadline, but you‘re eligible to vote, you can still vote but you’ll have to

request special voting papers from the Council’s electoral officer.

If you own property in Selwyn district but live in another district you may be able to enrol as a nonresident

ratepayer elector and vote in both areas. Check your eligibility and get more information at

the Ratepayer Elector Enrolment Portal on the Council’s website at selwyn.govt.nz/elections.

Selwyn deputy electoral officer Stephen Hill is encouraging residents to check their enrolment early

and make sure they have everything in order to be able to vote.

“Councils get to make decisions that affect every Selwyn resident, and have a big impact on the

community – including the services that residents receive and what they cost,” he says.

“Local elections are your chance to have a say and help shape Selwyn’s future.”

New toilet funding a boost for visitor experience

Visitors to several popular Selwyn locations will enjoy a more comfortable experience after the Ministry

of Business, Innovation and Employment approved funding for toilet and car park upgrades.

Nearly $300,000 has been granted from MBIE’s Tourism Infrastructure Fund for new or upgraded

toilets at the Darfield Grain Shed, Waimakariri Gorge and the Little River Rail Trail, and car park

improvements at Joyce Reserve in Glentunnel, and at Lake Lyndon Reserve.

The existing old concreate toilet block at the Grain Shed, beside the historic jail site in Darfield, will be

demolished and a new block installed.

At Waimakariri Gorge the existing facility will also be replaced with a new one, and the location will be

moved closer to the road access.

On the Little River Rail Trail a brand new toilet

block will be built about midway between

Lincoln and Motukarara, close to the

Ahuriri Lagoon.

Council Community Projects manager Cam

Warr says this facility will be a welcome

addition for cyclists, who otherwise face a 15

kilometre stretch between the

two settlements.

If you pay by direct debit, you should have received information on

your new direct debit in a separate letter. If you’re on direct debit then,

provided you have sufficient funds in your bank account to cover the

payments on the due dates, you will not be

charged penalties.

For ratepayers not on a direct debit, rates are payable in four

instalments – 15 September 2022, 15 December 2022, 15 March

2023 and 15 June 2023. Penalties are charged on instalments not

paid in full by the due dates and there is a further penalty if rates are

not paid by 30 June 2023

Your rates invoice details the rates assessed for your property for

both the Council and Environment Canterbury. The Council assesses

a general rate, based on your property’s capital value, district-wide

targeted rates, plus other targeted rates based on where you live, or

the services you receive. We also act as agent for the collection of

Environment Canterbury rates within Selwyn.

The average rates increase for the 2022/23 year is 6%, however

this will vary for individual properties. Rates take account of capital

values, as well any changes to your property, for example if you have

built a house on your section, or if you have changed your

wheelie bins.

For more information about rates, including forms and payment

options, visit selwyn.govt.nz/rates or phone 0800 SELWYN (735 996)

Apply for a rates rebate

Ratepayers who are on a low income and who pay rates on

the property they live in may be eligible for a rates rebate.

If your gross household income to 31 March 2022 was

$28,080 or less, and you pay rates on the property where

you live, you may qualify for a rebate.

If your income was more than this, you may still be eligible,

depending on the total cost of your rates and the number of

dependents in your family.

To find out if you are eligible for a rates rebate, and to

download forms, visit ratesrebates.govt.nz. Forms are also

available from Council service centres. If you received a

rates rebate last year you will automatically be sent an

application form.

To apply, you will need to provide accurate details and

copies of your gross income, and that of any partner/

spouse/joint homeowner who lives with you, for the tax

year ended 31 March 2022. You can apply for your rebate

at any Council service centre.

In Darfield, the township committee has

supported the toilet upgrade at the Grain

Shed site, which is well used by the local

community and visitors to the historic Darfield Jail.

Cam says the TIF funding has made a big difference to visitor facilities around the district in recent

years. “It has been really valuable in allowing us to improve and enhance the experience of travellers

and tourists exploring our district,” he says.

“It’s amazing how much we have managed to achieve with this fund – either bringing forward projects

to upgrade assets earlier or putting place new assets we would otherwise have struggled to fund.”

Previous TIF projects have included campground and toilet upgrades at locations including Lakeside

Domain, Coes Ford, Lake Coleridge, Hororata Domain and Springston.

for the first time, with a

controversial last-minute victory

extending Prebbleton’s wait for

the crown.

In fading light and heavy rain

at Darfield Domain, the hosts

overcame an early 17-0 deficit to

snatch a 27-26 triumph with the

last play of an enthralling final

on Saturday.

The contest ended in dramatic

circumstances when Alister

Collins was able to retake his

match-winning conversion after

his initial attempt was booted

off the kicking tee by charging

Prebbleton players.

Referee Eden Brown ruled

Prebbleton broke from the

goal line before Collins started

his approach – they were then

barred from charging the second

attempt, which the fullback

coolly converted, sparking

wild scenes. Footage of Collins’

first attempt indicated he

motioned towards the ball but

Darfield manager Scott Mitchell

explained he was moving in to

the perfect ball placement, not

actually strike it.

“He walked in to line it up and

they thought he was walking in

to kick it,” said Mitchell.

Blair McIlroy charges in with head down.

“It took a bit of pressure off

when they couldn’t charge. It’s

one you expect to get, but they’re

probably the worst actually

sometimes.”

Prebbleton players remonstrated

with Brown but coach

Dave Kettles was diplomatic.

“I don’t want to go into that,

the officials get a hard enough

time. The referee said he (Collins)

hadn’t approached the ball.

We just want to congratulate

Darfield,” he said.

Collins was set up to celebrate

his 50th-game for the club in

style when centre Toby Kars

sliced through a stretched

defensive line to dive over about

15-metres to the right of the

posts.

Kars scored nine phases

after a tap penalty as Darfield

applied concerted pressure after

botching a close range lineout.

However, Prebbleton could

not clear their line, conceded

a 5m scrum and the top

qualifiers patient approach paid

dividends.

Alister Collins leaps up to get the ball before

Cameron Hay, both were playing in their

50th match.

“It’s unreal, especially leaving

it to the last play of the game,”

said Mitchell, who was unfazed

by the opening quarter setback.

“We felt if we got ball in hand

we’d be okay. We scored shortly

after that and that probably

relaxed a few people, we got

into a bit of structure then,” he

said.

Prebbleton led 20-13 at the

break and kicked ahead again

through two penalties after Darfield

had drawn level.

Kettles was philosophical after

his side fell agonisingly short of

being the first squad to win the

competition for Prebbleton since

1974.

“They’ve never won it so we’re

really happy for them, and disappointed

for us. Our time will

come,” he said.

“It’s an 80-minute game.

Credit to them. They kept clawing

their way back.

“They phased up pretty well,

they just waited and waited and

waited for the opportunity and

when it came they took it.”

Hamish Pauling pushes through Kerry Gray.

Yuta Ohata clears the ball.

Jared Kars tackles Cameron Hay

around the waist.

Headache trotter

finally matures

• By Joshua Smith

MAKE MY Sundon was

rewarded for her consistency

at Addington Raceway on

Sunday when taking out the

Paul Renwick Joinery Winter

Rewards Handicap Trot

(2600m).

Inherited from breeder

Wayne Jennens, Make My

Sundon has proven to be

somewhat of a headache for

Rolleston-based trainer-owners

Anne-Marie and Jack Best over

the last few seasons, but she has

finally matured and on Sunday

recorded her third win in the

last two months.

“We have always known that

she had the ability but every

now and then she would get

stuck in her head and let us

down, but now she has really

picked up,” Anne-Marie Best

said.

“We have done a few

alterations like different

shoeing. John Dunn has done

an amazing job driving her and

helping out Jack and I.”

Dunn drove the six-year-old

mare to perfection on Sunday,

settling handy three back in the

running line before presenting

her at the turn where she was

able to run away to a 2-1/2

length victory.

It was a great result for the

Bests who enjoyed the added

bonus of running for a $20,000

purse as a result of the Winter

Rewards series.

“It is great that they have

created the series, because they

really needed to do something

to keep us excited and keep the

game going,” Best said.

While Make My Sundon is in

a purple patch of form, Best said

she is keen to progress through

the winter with the mare.

“We will sit down and make

a plan. She seems to race better

in the winter, she does come

into season quite a lot in the

summer,” Best said.

“She is in a really good place

at the moment, so we will box

on and keep her going.”

The Bests only have a couple

of horses in work at present, but

they are set to welcome a few

youngsters back to their barn in

the coming weeks.

“I am not keen getting up

early in the morning working a

lot of horses at the moment, it is

so cold here,” Best said.

“We have only got two in at

the moment and we have got

quite a few young ones that will

come back in August.”

Cancer campaign close

to home for Moody

ALL BLACKS and Crusaders

prop Joe Moody is lending his

support to the Harness Racing

New Zealand Prostate Cancer

Foundation’s Blue September

campaign.

The 33-year-old, who played

division one for Lincoln for

several seasons, will be a special

HRNZ ambassador for the

month.

The annual campaign is all

about increasing awareness and

raising funds for prostate cancer

research and treatment.

For Moody it’s a subject that’s

very personal. His father Tony

Moody died from prostate cancer

in July 2020.

It’s estimated that 10 per cent

of New Zealand men will develop

prostate cancer at some time in

their life.

Moody has been involved in

raising funds for the Prostate

Cancer Foundation before.

After becoming the 19th

Crusader to play 100 games

he auctioned his signed

playing jersey on Trade Me.

It eventually sold for $11,050,

with all proceeds going to the

foundation.

Ten harness racing drivers

will also be ambassadors during

the month. For every win they

have wearing their Blue September

pants funds will be raised, thanks

AMBASSADOR:

Joe Moody is

supporting the

Harness Racing

New Zealand

Prostate Cancer

Foundation’s

campaign.

to the support of HRNZ, harness

racing clubs around the country,

and drivers’ individual sponsors.

The HRNZ campaign raised

$20,000 last year. This is HRNZ’s

second year being part of the

campaign, and Moody’s first.

“It is great to be able to support

a cause that affects so many

people, including myself, and to

be able to help out in any way I

can,” said Moody.

Moody will be a guest

speaker at the campaign launch

at Addington Raceway on

September 2, as well as attending

some other events and race

meetings.

Young netballers thrilled to receive grant

THE ROLLY Robins can take

their netball game to the next

level after being awarded an

ANZ netball grant.

The grants give netballers

across New Zealand an

opportunity to apply for

anything they need to continue

playing the game they love –

from uniforms and training gear

to resurfaced courts and moneycan’t-buy

experiences.

Coach and parent Phia Venter

applied for a grant because the

netball courts the Rolly Robins

used for training had “no

lights, no running water and no

electricity”.

They were awarded the hire of

an indoor court and gear to help

them get into training, which

Venter said “immediately took

the pressure off,” she said.

Venter was concerned about

the financial burden hiring a

better court would place on the

families and was “gobsmacked”

to receive a grant.

“I was having a panic attack

about telling the parents they

had to pay more money to use

better courts, when ANZ called.

Divine intervention is what it’s

called.

“I didn’t want the parents to

face the financial burden that

would come from using the

indoor centre. Some of the

girls might have had to drop

out.”

The Rolly Robins is made up

of 10 and 11 year-old girls from

schools around Rolleston. Venter

said the team was established

to teach the players about

teamwork and to build a

community.

“It’s not just netball, it’s

learning teamwork. You can’t

just throw the ball to the people

you know. It takes them out

of their comfort zone and at a

very young age, but these girls

from the get-go have just been

amazing.”

Venter has fond memories of

her own experiences playing

netball.

“At the end of this season, I

want the girls to look back and

say this was the best team that

they’ve been a part of. I want

them to carry that moment with

them for the rest of their lives.”

Said ANZ general manager

marketing, Matt Pickering:

“We’re proud to support netball

from the grassroots clubs

and schools in Canterbury to

the elite players in the ANZ

Premiership and the Silver Ferns.

Community netball has had it

tough over the last two years so

we hope ANZ’s support makes

it easier for players to continue

playing the game they love.

“We know it’s the clubs and

schools across the country

that help to nurture the next

generation of players, and we

hope these grants give teams

a boost and fill them with the

confidence to play their best

game.”

STEP UP: An ANZ netball grant will enable the Rolly

Robbins to hire an indoor court. The young players had

been training at a court with no lights, electricity or

running water.

Pruning is best done on a clear dry day. Make sure you use

sharp loppers or secateurs, so you get a clean cut. Remove

all the cut branches and rake away any leaves that are left

behind. Once done, complete the task by spraying with a

winter clean up spray to kill any over wintering bugs and

diseases. Kiwicare Copper Fungicide is great for this.

Winter gardening certainly slows down a bit,

but now is the perfect time to get busy with

rose pruning and mulching. Roses are forgiving

easy to grow plants that enjoy and appreciate

an annual prune. The aim of rose pruning is to

maintain a good even shape and to keep the

rose bushes healthy and at a manageable size.

Farmer grazing under scrutiny

Farmers practicing “intensive winter

grazing” need to know how to manage the

environmental risks that can come about

when adverse weather hits, Environment

Canterbury says.

“Intensive winter grazing is a high-risk

activity and requires good planning.

Those practicing it need to recognise

how to manage the risks to animal

welfare, and preparing management

practices to mitigate the risks of soil

damage and nutrient loss,” ECan Regional

Implementation Lead Tami Woods says.

While NIWA’s outlook for winter in

Canterbury is for relatively mild winter

weather, rainfall can be unpredictable.

Woods said the risk from heavy and

persistent rain bring can be mitigated by

having an adverse weather plan, which

may involve having spare silage to feed

out, or an extra runoff paddock for stock.

This should work alongside general good

management practices such as strategic

grazing practices and protecting critical

source areas or swales.

Farmers’ approach to risk management

is being carefully watched. This month,

Environment Canterbury has done a trial

flyover in Waimakariri “ to look at good

management practices of intensive winter

grazing”.

It’s the first time the regional council will

have taken to the skies to get a birds-eye

view of winter grazing, but it’s common

practice in other parts of the country.

The flight was to have “regional

implementation staff and an industry

observer onboard” and Woods said that

if any follow-up was required, they would

take an education-first approach.

“The trial will confirm the uptake

of good management practices for

winter grazing and identify if there

are areas where farmers may require

additional support. The learnings will

help inform future use of flyovers across

the region, which may become a tool for

us to be confident that the appropriate

environmental mitigations are being put in

place,” Woods said.

Since the adoption of the Canterbury

Land and Water Regional Plan, regional

council, industry bodies and farmers have

worked to mitigate the potential adverse

effects of intensive winter grazing.

These measures include the use of Farm

Environment Plans and audits to ensure

they are appropriate and put in place.

Changes to intensive winter grazing

included in the government’s Essential

Freshwater package come into force this

November. Woods said that this winter,

ECan’s aim was to help with the step

change between current rules and next

year’s regulations.

“We’ve worked with farmers and industry

bodies for years now about how to plan

well for the season, so we’re confident we’ll

see the good work put into practice onfarm,”

she said.

Ease the load with Hyundai Staria

THE management at Hyundai

New Zealand must be pretty

stoked, for not only is the

company getting a good supply

of interesting new product, one

of the most exciting cars to land

here has just won the latest New

Zealand Motoring Writers’ Guild

Car of the Year award.

That car is the fully electric and

futuristic Ioniq 5, a car that I was

fortunate enough to drive late

last year. It certainly deserves its

mantle.

This evaluation doesn’t focus

on the Ioniq 5, but it does surround

another vehicle that stands

out in the Hyundai stable – the

Staria.

Well, the Staria is actually a

cargo carrier, it’s been designed

as a light commercial workhorse

and it won’t be long before you

are seeing them in large numbers

as fleet vehicles. The Staria is also

here as an eight-seater people

mover and a five-seat/van.

I drove the eight-seater in

March and quickly came to terms

with its size and its role, the Staria

is big and fits the people mover

role perfectly, however, the twoseater

van/Load version is the

quintessential carryall.

In terms of figures, the rear

load area is capable of almost

5000-litre capacity, it measures

2607mm x 1640mm x 1436mm,

that equates to around three

pallets and the quoted payload is

over one-tonne.

These are all impressive figures,

and quite obviously I didn’t test

any of those capacities. However,

I did utilise the vehicle somewhat

towards its role. It was great to

load the cricket gear in for the

two youth teams that I’m involved

with on any given Saturday,

it sure beats trying to squeeze

the gear bags into the boot of the

Kiddie-family’s old Toyota.

I also tested the dimensions of

the load area, a household emergency

necessitated the immediate

purchase of a 2.44m sheet of Customwood

and it slipped easily into

the Staria, it’s width of 1.2m fitted

neatly inside the wheel wells. For

interest’s sake, the Load variant has

sliding doors on both sides and a

choice of lift-back or twin-swing

rear door arrangement. It also has

a 2500kg tow rating.

You may well ask what makes

the Staria so special, and the

answer is because it is built on

a sophisticated platform. The

chassis is monocoque, unlike

many of the ladder chassis vans

that ply our roads. In four-wheeldrive

people mover form, a fully

independent suspension hangs

off that integrated structure, in

cargo-carrying form the rear

suspension is by means of leaf

springs, drive is channelled to the

front only.

That matters little, many of the

COMFORT: The Staria has a car-like driving environment.

HYUNDAI STARIA LOAD: Dramatic looks as well as practicality.

vans in today’s market drive out

the front, the Staria’s driveline is

well proven and very familiar, see

the engine is the 2.2-litre fourcylinder

turbocharged diesel that

powers other models out of the

Hyundai and Kia stables. I always

write about how smooth and silent

this engine is, it is also real gem in

terms of power and capability.

Hyundai rates it with 130kW

and 430Nm, figures down a little

on the same engine that powers

the Pallisade, but you wouldn’t

know it when it comes to power

and acceleration. When empty,

the Staria feels like a sports car as

momentum increases, it will cut

out a standstill to 100km/h time

in 9sec. There are drive modes

that will help with momentum,

there’s a sport mode that will keep

the engine soaring nicely if you

are making that courier delivery

over the Akaroa hill.

More importantly in a vehicle

like this and with fuel prices soaring

through the roof, Hyundai

rates the 2199cc unit with a

seven-litre per 100km combined

cycle average, if you are in the

driving seat for days at a time, it’s

not going hurt the wallet as much

as it could when you fill up. It’s

also important to note the Staria

has a 75-litre tank, so fill-ups

aren’t frequent.

All of these tempting figures

arrive through the sophistication

of the transmission. Not only is

the engine one my favourites, the

eight-speed automatic gearbox

is also a real honey in terms of

• Price – Hyundai Staria

Load, $62,990

• Dimensions – Length,

5253mm; width, 1997mm;

height, 2000mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

2199cc, 130kW,

430Nm, eight-speed

automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9sec

• Fuel usage – 7/100km

refinement, shifts are short and

crisp and, as mentioned, it works

well with the engine mapping

protocols that give you the choice

of economical, normal or sporty

motoring.

It’s important that all of these

subtle ingredients combine well,

the Staria load is a workhorse so

it will likely be used by a single

operator the majority of the time,

and that person will need to be

comfortable.

In terms of convenience the

Staria gets a lot of high-tech kit,

it’s fair to say the people mover

has the most kit, but the Load

doesn’t miss out on much, and it

even gets a five-star Australasian

New Car Assessment Program

safety rating.

All of these ingredients add to

the driveability of the Staria Load,

I had the evaluation vehicle for

a week spending a lot of time in

the inner-city environment, and I

can report that even at 5.2m it is

manoeuvrable, sure you do have

to take into account it won’t fit in

a standard metered car park, but

other than that it has a good lock

and won’t be a problem in tight

confines.

If you are a courier driver looking

at a Staria on an everyday

basis then it won’t disappoint, the

cabin is almost luxurious with a

heap of cubby holes and storage

compartments. My only suggestion

would be the sensible option

of a containing mesh behind the

two seats to stop loads falling

forward in the inevitable heavy

braking event.

It’s also fair to say that when

the Staria is empty, there’s not

too much of a bounding motion,

and when it comes to transporting

cargo it settles and provides a

smooth, controlled ride.

I had a complete fortnight with

the two Starias, during that time

I clocked up a decent distance

in both and came away quite

impressed with the quality of

manufacture and civilised operation

of both.

The Load van sits at $62,990

($59,990 manual), although that

is without any kind of fit-out. It

is price-competitive in a market

dominated by long-serving

brands.

Although Hyundai has

established itself in the light

commercial market with its

iLoad, the Staria will expand

on that dramatically. It’s the van

you would want when you want

space, and with its dramatic looks

it will be the envy of many.

Leeston agent Penny Dadson-Clausen and Selwyn area

Natural hazards to watch

out for when buying a home

When buying a home, it can be easy to focus

on the renovated kitchen or the north-facing

deck, but it’s important to consider how the

property might stand up to a natural disaster.

For many New Zealanders, the first

thing that comes to mind is an earthquake.

“As Kiwis, we know all too well how

much damage a shake can do to our

homes,”“However, there are plenty of

other hazards mother nature may throw

at us, including tsunamis, volcanic

eruptions and hydrothermal activity

such as hydrothermal eruptions, ground

subsidence and gas emissions.”

Other calamities include a fire, flood,

storm damage or even a tornado. When

working to identify natural hazards that

might affect a home, the best place to

start is to get the property inspected by an

appropriately qualified professional. This

will give buyers an idea of any damage

from past natural events.

“Check that they’ll consider how

chimneys, foundations and retaining walls

might perform or be affected by natural

hazards. Ask them to comment on the

maintenance of the house,”

“If the home is being sold by a licensed

real estate salesperson, buyers can ask

them anything they want to know about

the property. The agent can’t withhold any

information they know.”

The local council is another great

resource, as they should have information

about any hazards present at the address.

Some of this information may be available

free of charge, but it can be a good idea to

pay for a land information memorandum

(LIM) report, which will provide buyers

with a fuller picture of that property.

“It’s also important to find out about

the history of the home, including

whether it has been the subject of an EQC

[Earthquake Commission] claim and

whether that claim has been resolved,”

Natural disasters do happen, so to

be protected against damage or loss it’s

important to insure a property. Buyers

should call around different insurers to get

quotes for the house they’re considering.

“Banks and other lenders usually require

the place to be insured from settlement

date, so an ‘uninsurable’ house can cause

trouble,”

Buyers should also understand how the

risks that affect a home might change over

time.

“For example, insurance companies

are reassessing how they cover coastal or

clifftop properties due to the growing risk

of environmental damage. This means

that the cost of premiums may increase,

exclusions may be added, or insurance

cover may be withdrawn for some

properties as the risk changes.”

When drawing up a pros and cons list

for a property, consider features that make

a home safer or more at risk during a

natural event. For example, a roof that’s

lightweight and well secured will stand

up better in a storm. A tall, unbraced

chimney made from brick or concrete may

suffer damage or collapse in a quake.

Identifying potential risks should be

part of the due diligence process before

making an offer, and house hunters can

find a list of natural hazards to look out for

on the Real Estate Authority’s independent

website for buyers and sellers, settled.govt.

nz.

“Of course, this doesn’t cover everything

that may be relevant to a particular buyer

or property, which is why it’s important to

get advice from a lawyer or conveyancer,

or other registered professionals, before

signing on the dotted line,”

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

Keep warm and

healthy this winter

Your family’s health is important during

winter, in particular, as damp cold houses

can have a huge effect particularly for the

very young, elderly and those who are ill.

Make sure your home is warm, ideally

between 18 and 21 degrees. Reducing

the draughts in your home will help as

they are a major way that buildings can

lose heat by up to 25 per cent. Close the

curtains when the sun goes down and trim

any trees that prevent the sun getting into

your home.

Keeping your home dry is also very

important. The average family home can

produce around 12 litres of water a day.

A portable dehumidifier can remove

moisture and ideally should be placed in

the coldest part of your home. Reducing

the amount of moisture helps with people

who are allergic and prevents mould,

moisture and condensation on the

windows.

In-home ventilation systems replace

the damp air inside your homes with

dry, filtered air controlling condensation

and excess moisture. There is plenty of

information online about the different

brands and sizes.

Try not to dry clothes indoors as this

creates moisture in the air. Drying them

outside is not only free from the cost

of electricity but sunlight kills bacteria,

making your clothes healthier for you and

your family. If it is raining use a shed or

garage as an alternative.

If you use a clothes dryer, make sure

your clothes are properly spun first and

either vent it outside or leave windows

open.

To reduce moisture caused by steam,

always open a window when you are

showering and when you are cooking on

the stove top. Use pot lids to reduce the

amount of steam escaping. Keep doors to

bedrooms closed at these times as steam

can make beds damp.

Finally insulation can make a huge

difference to keeping your house

warm and save on heating costs. The

Government has subsidies available,

including the EnergyWise Home Grants,

to help with ceiling and floor insulation,

draught stopping and hot water cylinder

wraps. Visit www.energywise.govt.nz.

Bayleys Selwyn – bringing

the hammer down on the

real estate auction process

The goal of any residential property

auction campaign is to sell on auction

day. However, Bayleys’ unmatched

deep understanding and utilisation

of the auction process as a proven

sales method with a three-stage

process, is invaluable in achieving a

higher degree of success compared to

all other methods of sale.

Data from Bayleys sales nationwide

shows after 28 days on the market,

your property is 67 percent more

likely to have been unconditionally

sold by taking it to auction rather

than through any other sales method.

It’s important to remember that

your valued property will only sell if

you as the owner are happy with the

price.

Auctions present a clear timeline

to the market and encourage

urgency amongst the buyer pool.

Auctions focus on achieving

unconditional bids/offers on

the auction date. This helps you

gain certainty to make your next

steps. This contrasts with other

methods of sale which often result

in conditional offers which extend

timelines and increase uncertainty.

So, what happens if your

property asset doesn’t sell on auction

day? If your property does not sell

unconditionally before or on the

allocated auction day, then you can

trigger the next wave of activity by

switching to secondary methods of

sale. These open up the opportunity

to buyers who absolutely require

conditions.

Importantly at this stage, the initial

auction campaign process will have

uncovered insightful price feedback

directly from the market to aid your

decision when setting a price level for

the secondary marketing methods.

You can trust that Bayleys’ awardwinning

auctioneers are always striving

to get you the best possible sales result

for your property – regardless of what

is happening in the wider property

market.

Leading the Bayleys Canterbury

auction team is National Auction

Manager Conor Patton, who won

the Real Estate Institute of New

Zealand National Auctioneering

Championship Award and the LVD

World Auctioneering Championship

Award in 2021, and 2022.

Conor has an extensive background

in real estate sales - which has

empowered him with an in-depth

appreciation for, and understanding of,

the considerable groundwork which

goes on behind the scenes to prepare

for each and every auction. Conor

has exceptional negotiation skills he

works hard to ensure all parties are

comfortable and confident, and that

every ounce of value is drawn from the

process.

Conor is well supported in our

auction rooms with the very capable

Ben Deans, who is the resident

auction professional within Bayleys

Canterbury’s auction team. Ben brings

a wealth of real estate knowledge

backed by 10-years of auctioneering

experience.

The professionalism and experience

of both Conor and Ben combines to

make one of the most formidable sales

teams in Canterbury - and indeed New

Zealand - and their award-winning

achievements always assist Bayleys

Canterbury’s clients in reaching their

goals.

If you are thinking about your

next move or whether an auction

campaign is the right sales method

for your property, we would welcome

the opportunity to discuss the details

with you, call Chris Flanagan on

027 433 4657 or your local Bayleys

agent.
