Township could double in<br />

size as boundaries pushed<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

DEVELOPERS at Prebbleton<br />

propose to push the township<br />

boundary out across rural<br />

land to the southwest with 527<br />

new sections, bordered by the<br />

national electricity grid.<br />

Birchs Village Ltd and Ngāi<br />

Tahu Property Development<br />

Ltd have increased the number<br />

of sections in the proposed<br />

37ha subdivision on Birchs Rd<br />

from 400 as medium density<br />

provisions are introduced.<br />

If each section was developed<br />

for three dwellings, as would<br />

be allowed under the provisions,<br />

there would be 1581 new<br />

homes at the site.<br />

The district council has<br />

accepted an application from<br />

the developers, named Plan<br />

Change 79, to rezone the rural<br />

land. This means the application<br />

will now be notified for<br />

public submissions, and a hearing<br />

will be held.<br />

PC79 follows two other<br />

controversial Prebbleton plan<br />

changes being adopted by the<br />

district council.<br />

• Turn to page 4<br />

GROWTH: Prebbleton is set to almost double in size as the latest of three plan changes, PC79,<br />

comes before the district council. A subdivision is planned for this land on Birchs Rd, to the<br />

far side of the high voltage transmission lines.<br />

“I wouldn’t have gone<br />

anywhere that didn’t<br />

have capital gain.”<br />

“I think it’s a great deal fairer than some of the other options out<br />

there. And my accountant and solicitor both thought it was a very<br />

good idea. For us capital gain was the deciding factor...<br />

as well as how welcoming everyone is to other family members.”<br />

There are many more reasons why Woodcroft Estate could be the right choice for you.<br />

Generously proportioned homes and a real village feel are just the start of it. Our stages<br />

1and 2 are now sold but why not visit our website or call to ask about our Stage 3 plans.<br />

There is so much more to be gained with our new take on retirement living.<br />

Powering up<br />

for the future<br />

With demand for electricity continuing to<br />

grow in Canterbury, Orion is partnering<br />

with Transpower to build a new Grid Exit<br />

Point (GXP) in Norwood, which will deliver<br />

more power to the region.<br />

Our world is changing too and people are<br />

increasingly turning to electricity to reduce<br />

their carbon emissions.<br />

What is a GXP?<br />

A GXP transforms the high voltage<br />

electricity of the national grid to lower<br />

voltage electricity, which can then be used<br />

by homes and businesses. The GXP can<br />

also upload locally-generated electricity<br />

to the national grid.<br />

Why do we need one?<br />

This major new electricity infrastructure<br />

will increase the capacity of the region’s<br />

network by 25 per cent. It will create a more<br />

resilient and reliable network and enable<br />

us to deliver more power to homes and<br />

businesses. In addition, it will allow us to<br />

supply more of the clean energy we need<br />

as we shift away from burning fossil fuels.<br />

Where will it be built?<br />

The new GPX will be located in Norwood,<br />

at the intersection of Highfield Road and<br />

Telegraph Road. It will feature sophisticated<br />

electrical equipment, in a secure compound<br />

surrounded by fencing and native planting.<br />

The project is expected to be completed<br />

by November 2023. If you’d like to keep<br />

up to date as the build progresses,<br />

you can register to receive our Norwood<br />

GXP newsletter by emailing: Orion<br />

We are always here to help if you have any questions or<br />

concerns about the network.

Under-strength police station concern<br />

• By Tina Grumball<br />

Lynn<br />

CONCERN IS growing police<br />

chiefs are again considering<br />

cutting back numbers at some<br />

stations in the district to enable<br />

the Rolleston station to operate<br />

24 hours a day.<br />

Lincoln Club<br />

president Lynn<br />

Townsend said<br />

he has been told<br />

if it goes ahead<br />

it would involve<br />

reducing the<br />

township’s station<br />

in Gerald St<br />

from three officers<br />

to one.<br />

Townsend<br />

Other stations could also be<br />

affected. The officers from those<br />

stations would be needed to<br />

bolster Rolleston.<br />

Townsend addressed club<br />

members at a their weekly club<br />

night about his concerns and the<br />

need to maintain police numbers<br />

in Lincoln given the township’s<br />

growth. He urged club members<br />

and other people in the community<br />

to lobby police chiefs.<br />

Canterbury police district<br />

commander Superintendent<br />

John Price said he was “aware of<br />

it” when asked if consideration<br />

was being given to cut numbers<br />

at some stations.<br />

He referred any specific questions<br />

to Canterbury rural police<br />

district commander Inspector<br />

BOLSTER: There is concern officer numbers at some police stations in the district may be<br />

reduced in order to strengthen the Rolleston station (pictured here).<br />

Peter Cooper.<br />

“He’s the lead, not myself,”<br />

Price said.<br />

However, Cooper told the<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> there was no plan.<br />

“There is no plan to do anything<br />

to the Lincoln station or<br />

anywhere in <strong>Selwyn</strong>,” he said.<br />

“There is no proposal, there<br />

is nothing to see. We talk about<br />

things, we talk about the best<br />

things to do with our staff. If<br />

there was ever a proposal to<br />

change things, the first people<br />

to see it would be the staff and,<br />

all due respect, it wouldn’t be a<br />

media alley.”<br />

Cooper hoped, as the population<br />

grew, they would be able to<br />

increase staff and resources in<br />

the area.<br />

In late 2019, police confirmed a<br />

review of staffing was underway<br />

and could not rule out cutting<br />

numbers at some stations to<br />

bolster a 24-hour, seven days a<br />

week, service at Rolleston.<br />

Staffing at the Lincoln and<br />

Darfield stations were at the<br />

forefront of that review.<br />

But Covid-19 and lockdowns<br />

put the review on hold and the<br />

Rolleston station’s hours remain<br />

as they were then – 8am-4pm<br />

Monday to Friday.<br />

Springs Ward district councillor<br />

Debra Hasson, said she was<br />

“aware there is some [reorganising]<br />

going on” within the police.<br />

“I do know that this item has<br />

been on the radar for probably<br />

over 12 months now,” she said.<br />

Townsend said it wasn’t fair to<br />

the Lincoln community or the<br />

“lone ranger police [officer]” if<br />

there was to only be one officer at<br />

the Lincoln station.<br />

Denise Cole of community<br />

advocacy group Lincoln Voice,<br />

said any consideration to reduce<br />

policing was bad timing.<br />

“The township is actually<br />

growing and, really, we need to<br />

increase police presence,” she<br />

said.<br />

A <strong>Selwyn</strong> Community Patrol<br />

member, Cole said there had<br />

been an increase in crime and<br />

a delay in police response times<br />

would spell trouble.<br />

“The police in Christchurch<br />

are going to be busier and busier.<br />

The police in Rolleston are going<br />

to be busier and busier. So who<br />

is going to come? There won’t be<br />

anybody,” she said,<br />

Mayor Sam Broughton would<br />

not discuss any potential police<br />

changes with the <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong>,<br />

or be drawn on his views if it<br />

happened.<br />

Said Broughton’s media<br />

adviser Sean Tully: “Thank you<br />

for your email to Mayor Sam<br />

which I have discussed with him.<br />

As this is a matter for the police<br />

please would you direct your<br />

questions to their organisation.”<br />

Hasson said it would be “sad”<br />

if a police restructure in the district<br />

meant fewer officer at some<br />

stations.<br />

“Personally I would say that it<br />

would be really quite sad. I think<br />

community policing should<br />

be strengthened in our local<br />

communities,” she said.<br />

• From page 1<br />

These are plan Change PC68,<br />

for 820 sections on 67ha, and<br />

Plan Change 72, for 295 sections<br />

on 28ha. The PC68 decision has<br />

been notified while the PC72<br />

decision has been notified and<br />

appealed.<br />

If all three plan changes went<br />

ahead, Prebbleton would almost<br />

double in size. The township’s<br />

current number of dwellings is<br />

about 1850.<br />

The number of dwellings<br />

would increase even further if<br />

the maximum of three homes<br />

per section was pursued, as is allowed<br />

under the medium density<br />

provisions.<br />

However, the district council<br />

does not believe developers will<br />

necessarily triple the number of<br />

dwellings in each of their plan<br />

change areas, just because they<br />

can. In addition, developers can<br />

introduce covenants to stop individual<br />

section owners doing this.<br />

Strategy and policy planner<br />

Rachael Carruthers told district<br />

councillors at their meeting<br />

last week that, for PC79, the<br />

proposed medium density<br />

provisions created a challenge in<br />

determining the likely number of<br />

dwellings.<br />

Carruthers said three units on<br />

each section would be unlikely<br />

to align with the market demand<br />

for Prebbleton.<br />

“In short, just because the zoning<br />

enables it, does not mean that<br />

it will happen,” Carruthers said.<br />

If the PC79 area, of about 37ha,<br />

was developed to its absolute<br />

maximum, it could have 856<br />

lots, based on a minimum site of<br />

400m2. This gave a theoretical<br />

yield of 2568 units.<br />

“Given that the housing market<br />

in Prebbleton is primarily for<br />

detached family homes, whilst<br />

such an outcome is theoretically<br />

enabled by the proposed zone, in<br />

reality it is considered to be fanciful<br />

that such an intensive development<br />

will eventuate,” she said.<br />

Rather, the developers considered<br />

527 lots to be a more<br />

realistic yield, with an average lot<br />

size of 650m2, and a single dwelling<br />

on each.<br />

“If each of these lots were then<br />

further developed for three units,<br />

the total yield would be 1581<br />

units, although again this is considered<br />

to be extremely unlikely,”<br />

Carruthers said.<br />

Carruthers noted that<br />

PC79 was initially to stretch<br />

from Prebbleton to beyond<br />

Transpower’s Christchurch-<br />

Twizel 220kV transmission<br />

line, which runs along the<br />

rural outskirts of the township.<br />

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

Medium density could<br />

clash with demand<br />

However, following feedback<br />

from Transpower, the southern<br />

extent was pulled back, so it<br />

will no longer extend under the<br />

transmission corridor.<br />

As district councillors moved<br />

to accept PC79, councillor Sophie<br />

McInnes referred to previous<br />

plan changes and a Sunday<br />

current affairs programme that<br />

aired last week. The programme<br />

covered the controversial PC69<br />

Lincoln South development set<br />

against the backdrop of the loss<br />

of fertile soils nationwide.<br />

McInnes asked if the Government’s<br />

soon-to-be-released National<br />

Policy Statement – Highly<br />

Productive Land (NPS-HPL)<br />

would be able to be taken into account<br />

at the PC79 hearing, even<br />

though the district council was<br />

accepting PC79 now before it had<br />

been released.<br />

Carruthers said the hearing<br />

Commissioner would take into<br />

account all relevant laws and<br />

rules at that time, including the<br />

NPS-HPL.<br />

Government has been accused<br />

of being too slow to release the<br />

NPS-HPL, while the earlier National<br />

Policy Statement – Urban<br />

Development has opened the<br />

door to large-scale subdivisions<br />

across rural land.<br />

grid operator Transpower are<br />

to build a new $58 million<br />

infrastructure to meet record<br />

growth in central Canterbury’s<br />

electricity demand.<br />

The new GXP, to be built<br />

on a 13ha parcel of land in<br />

rural Norwood, will transform<br />

high voltage electricity from<br />

Transpower’s national grid,<br />

down to voltages distributed by<br />

Orion to homes and businesses<br />

in the region.<br />

There are currently two<br />

major 220kV-66kV GXPs in<br />

Orion’s network and the new<br />

Norwood GXP will increase<br />

Orion’s capacity to draw down<br />

power from the national grid by<br />

200MW, or 25 per cent.<br />

Orion group chief executive<br />

“For the past 10 years, we’ve<br />

had sustained growth in the<br />

number of new customers connecting<br />

“More than 4100 additional<br />

RECYCLED: More than 8000 recycled sneakers were used to bring new life to the concrete basketball courts at Rolleston School. Right – The new<br />

sensory space outside Te Ara Atea was designed in collaboration with Waitaha School students, who have neurodiversities.<br />

Rolleston outdoor spaces win awards<br />

THE TE ARA Atea outdoor<br />

sensory space and Rolleston<br />

School basketball courts and<br />

sports wall have won big at the<br />

<strong>2022</strong> Landscapes of Distinction<br />

Awards.<br />

The projects were among 132<br />

nationally that were entered into<br />

the awards held by Registered<br />

Master Landscapes.<br />

Landscapers Morgan and<br />

Pollard were behind the spaces<br />

which achieved outstanding<br />

success at the ceremony in the<br />

weekend.<br />

The sensory space outside Te<br />

Ara Atea won the premier award<br />

in landscape construction and<br />

a gold medal in the commercial<br />

project: construction over<br />

$100,000 category.<br />

The space offers something<br />

for everyone, including a<br />

wheelchair-activated musical<br />

timber boardwalk and an<br />

individually placed river stone<br />

tactical ‘rumblewalk’.<br />

An innovative and skilfully<br />

constructed entry space for<br />

the new library complex in<br />

Rolleston, it was designed in<br />

collaboration with Waitaha<br />

School, where students have<br />

neurodiversities.<br />

The judges said the overall<br />

design had many carefully<br />

placed textures and elements of<br />

construction.<br />

“A challenging amount of<br />

concrete placed in an exposed<br />

area sits quite seamlessly and<br />

flows into some rumbled finishes<br />

of bricks stacked in soldier<br />

formation, and then some well<br />

laid out mosaic tiled surfaces,”<br />

the panel said.<br />

“Special attention has been<br />

paid to avoid sharp lipping and<br />

dangerous edges which could<br />

harm children, and these have<br />

been wonderfully set into place.”<br />

They also noted the curved<br />

timber shapes which were not<br />

an easy undertaking and had<br />

been completed to a very high<br />

level.<br />

The Rolleston School<br />

basketball courts and sports<br />

wall received the <strong>2022</strong> Judges<br />

Recognition award.<br />

A vibrant new multi-sport<br />

space had been created by<br />

upgrading the courts; more than<br />

8000 recycled sneakers built<br />

the recycled rubber surface and<br />

brought new life to the concrete<br />

courts beneath.<br />

The sports wall was a custom<br />

design feature that encouraged<br />

the creation of entirely new ball<br />

sports as children learn to play<br />

and adapt to the large void in the<br />

middle of the wall.<br />

“The recycled rubber surface is<br />

a mosaic of colour, and the clever<br />

patterning not only delineates<br />

full-size and half-size basketball<br />

courts but sets up opportunities<br />

for other sporting activities,” the<br />

judges said.<br />

“The new wall with its large<br />

window create the perfect<br />

opportunity for children to<br />

invent new ball games.”<br />

Registered Master Landscapes<br />

chief executive Janine Scott,<br />

congratulated all the award<br />

winners from across New<br />

Zealand and acknowledged<br />

the 50 per cent increase in the<br />

number of entrants this year.<br />

“This represents a major step<br />

forward,” she said.<br />

“The landscape industry is<br />

going from strength to strength,<br />

with so much young talent<br />

entering the industry and some<br />

extraordinary projects being<br />

undertaken by businesses<br />

throughout New Zealand.

Ardern said more information<br />

was being sought from Ukraine<br />

following the death of Burnhambased<br />

Corporal Dominic<br />

Abelen, but there is still no<br />

information about how or when<br />

his body will be returned home<br />

to New Zealand.<br />

Abelen died fighting Russian<br />

forces while on leave without pay<br />

and was not on active duty.<br />

“Unfortunately, of course, it is<br />

a war zone that he has been lost<br />

in,” she told TVNZ’s Breakfast<br />

show.<br />

“So we are very constrained<br />

in this environment – either<br />

getting good information, but<br />

also in being able to provide assistance<br />

on the ground.”<br />

She said there is no consular<br />

support on the ground – the<br />

nearest being in Warsaw, Poland,<br />

which is about a 13-hour<br />

drive away.<br />

There are also no foreign armies<br />

or partners that New Zealand<br />

would otherwise normally<br />

work with – none of whom are<br />

present in Ukraine.<br />

“It’s Ukrainian forces and it’s<br />

Russian forces – and that makes<br />

it very difficult for us.”<br />

Ardern said authorities are<br />

trying to glean additional information<br />

on the ground. However,<br />

she acknowledged that it was<br />

very hard to understand how accurate<br />

that information is.<br />

Dominic<br />

Abelen was<br />

killed while<br />

fighting in<br />

Ukraine.<br />

“But what information we<br />

have, we’re sharing directly with<br />

the family rather than putting<br />

into the public domain.”<br />

Ardern said she has received<br />

more information than what<br />

has been publicly shared, and<br />

reassured that Abelen’s family is<br />

aware of all the details that she<br />

has.<br />

Speaking to AM, Ardern said<br />

the reasons for not sharing more<br />

with the public was due to privacy<br />

and security issues.<br />

She said the information they<br />

are receiving has been difficult<br />

to confirm.<br />

“[There are] high levels of uncertainty<br />

because of course it’s a<br />

war zone,” she said.<br />

Ardern said she does expect to<br />

receive support from the Russian<br />

Embassy in New Zealand.<br />

“Obviously this is a war that<br />

is unprovoked and unjustified<br />

at the hands of Russia so, as you<br />

can imagine, you would have<br />

seen from their treatment of<br />

other foreign nationals, that this<br />

is not an area at all that I would<br />

expect them to be supportive,”<br />

she said.<br />

Asked by RNZ if Abelen’s<br />

body was in the arms of Russia,<br />

Ardern couldn’t confirm.<br />

She said whether the responsibility<br />

to bring Abelen’s body<br />

back belonged to the Government<br />

or not was not so black and<br />

white.<br />

“The issue is are we even going<br />

to have the ability?” she told<br />

RNZ.<br />

Of 94 defence force staff<br />

currently on leave without pay,<br />

Ardern said the NZDF was not<br />

aware of any of them being in<br />

Ukraine.<br />

“Of course, if you’re on leave<br />

without pay, the expectation is<br />

that you not be in Ukraine,” said<br />

Ardern.<br />

Abelen had not been given<br />

permission to enter Ukraine and<br />

he had not told them about his<br />

plans, the NZDF said in a statement.<br />

“It is not known how many<br />

NZDF personnel on leave without<br />

pay may be in Ukraine. No<br />

personnel have been approved<br />

by NZDF to enter the country,”<br />

the statement said.<br />

It declined to say whether it<br />

was checking the whereabouts of<br />

all its soldiers on leave, including<br />

those on leave without pay.<br />

Ex-soldier and former mayor<br />

of Tauranga Tenby Powell is in<br />

Ukraine providing humanitarian<br />

aid and helping with the<br />

evacuation of civilians.<br />

He was working closely with<br />

the Defence Force to bring back<br />

the body, he has said.<br />

A FATHER who deliberately drove<br />

off the road at 130km/h, killing his<br />

six-year-old son in a fiery car crash,<br />

has been jailed for five years.<br />

An emotional sentencing hearing<br />

at the High Court in Christchurch<br />

yesterday heard from Lachlan Gebhardt’s<br />

heartbroken mother Kim<br />

Manson who called her ex-partner<br />

Niklas Gebhardt a “coward” and a<br />

“monster”.<br />

Manson said her “beautiful,<br />

sweet son” – who she called her best<br />

friend – was killed in a “planned<br />

and calculated” act.<br />

While she knows Gebhardt – who<br />

claims he has amnesia and cannot<br />

remember why he drove off the<br />

road – was convicted on a charge of<br />

manslaughter, she said it will always<br />

be murder to her.<br />

12 <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> Wednesday <strong>August</strong> <strong>31</strong> <strong>2022</strong>


“IS THERE a housing crisis<br />

in <strong>Selwyn</strong>?” “Probably not”<br />

responded Tim Harris, manager<br />

of environmental and regulatory<br />

services, <strong>Selwyn</strong> District<br />

Council, to a question asked by<br />

TV One’s ‘Sunday’.<br />

So, if there is “probably not” a<br />

housing crisis in <strong>Selwyn</strong>, why are<br />

there multiple subdivisions for<br />

housing being developed here?<br />

As far back as the 1960s there<br />

was concern that prime land was<br />

being planted in housing instead<br />

of seeds. Most relevant being<br />

Pukekohe, and the Heretaunga<br />

plains near Napier and Hastings.<br />

In <strong>August</strong> 2019 the Government<br />

launched a National Policy<br />

Statement draft plan for Highly<br />

Productive Land – a move to<br />

protect elite soils.<br />

This plan was released by<br />

Environment Minister David<br />

Parker and Agriculture Minister<br />

Damien O’Connor.<br />

“Our land is a precious taonga<br />

– an irreplaceable treasure and<br />

a source of life and wellness for<br />

our country,” O’Connor said.<br />

“Once productive land is built<br />

on we can’t use it for food production,<br />

which is why we need to<br />

act now.”<br />

That was three years ago, so<br />

what has happened since?<br />

A lot. Developers have been<br />

acting!<br />

In a radio broadcast in February,<br />

Michelle Sands from Horticulture<br />

NZ said the <strong>Selwyn</strong> district<br />

had 18 private Plan Change<br />

applications in front of them.<br />

Fourteen of the 18 were on<br />

productive land.<br />

“The NPS-HPL was imminent,”<br />

she said.<br />

Following the council meeting,<br />

which approved the Lincoln<br />

PC69 subdivision, Councillor<br />

Sophie McInnes said: “PC69<br />

has neatly slipped in before the<br />

NPS-HPL was finalised.” Her<br />

justifiable attempt to have<br />

the decision delayed was<br />

unsuccessful.<br />

Why?<br />

From Tim Harris in the<br />

‘Sunday’ programme when asked<br />

if there would have been more<br />

clarity if the NPS-HPL had been<br />

finalised: “Yes, it would have,<br />

yes”.<br />

What if not in place? “A degree<br />

of frustration, but we don’t know<br />

if it would have stopped this<br />

development.”<br />

From ‘Sunday’, Environment<br />

Minister David Parker was<br />

quoted as saying: “There is<br />

nothing stopping councils<br />

protecting this land (HPL) in<br />

their own plans.”<br />

Why has the <strong>Selwyn</strong> District<br />

Council not taken the initiative<br />

and used commonsense to have<br />

done so?<br />

Direct developers to<br />

stoney ground to plant their<br />

houses, and support/subsidise<br />

HPL owners to plant seeds to<br />

feed the need.<br />

- David Meyers,<br />

Leeston<br />

Ellesmere, Trices<br />

Rd<br />

I regularly travel on this road<br />

between Halswell and Rolleston,<br />

and every single time I ask<br />

myself why the intersection has<br />

this configuration as I believe it<br />

is not well planned. I would like<br />

to know if a risk assessment has<br />

been carried out.<br />

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

Travelling from Rolleston to<br />

Halswell, you come to a give<br />

way sign at the intersection and<br />

have to look to your right down<br />

Ellesmere Rd, as the give way<br />

sign is on quite a sharp bend.<br />

Trices Rd actually runs all the<br />

way up to Sabys Road in a relatively<br />

straight line, but for some<br />

odd reason the straight through<br />

traffic on Trices Rd has to give<br />

way to the traffic coming from<br />

Ellesmere Rd.<br />

Travelling from Halswell to<br />

Rolleston there is no give way<br />

sign at the intersection, even<br />

though the traffic continuing<br />

down Trices Rd crosses over the<br />

path of the traffic coming along<br />

Ellesmere Rd.<br />

It makes much more sense to<br />

allow the traffic on Trices Rd to<br />

have the right of way, and place<br />

a give way sign so the traffic on<br />

Ellesmere Rd (where the traffic<br />

has to turn the sharp bend) has<br />

to give way.<br />

Problem solved.<br />

- Christine Parker<br />

New library<br />

I live in Greendale and am<br />

a fairly frequent visitor to<br />

Rolleston. Most times I use the<br />

Darfield Library, but on occasion<br />

I have dropped off or borrowed<br />

books from Rolleston.<br />

I am not impressed with the<br />

new library for the following<br />

reasons:<br />

1. Not having the library on<br />

the ground floor. There is no<br />

visual appearance of there being<br />

a library when one goes past the<br />

building. We took a considerable<br />

time to find the library when it<br />

shifted.<br />

Far too much empty space and<br />

‘It rocked me to the core’<br />

says peace train helper<br />

WHEN THE call went out for<br />

volunteers to run the Peace<br />

Train that Yusuf Islam gifted to<br />

Christchurch after the mosque<br />

attacks, Andrew Wilson knew he<br />

had to put his hand up.<br />

One of his workmates was at<br />

the mosque when the attacks<br />

occurred and witnessed the<br />

shootings.<br />

“He rang me as he was due<br />

back to work on a project with<br />

me, saying there had been an<br />

event,’’ Wilson recalls.<br />

“It rocked me to the core – my<br />

peace-loving friend had been<br />

through such an ordeal. It took a<br />

long time for him to recover. He<br />

lost his best friend and flatmate.’’<br />

Wilson did all that he could<br />

to support his workmate in the<br />

months that followed.<br />

When he heard the city<br />

council was looking for<br />

volunteers to help run the Peace<br />

Train, the 55-year-old saw<br />

another way to show his support<br />

so he volunteered to train the<br />

train drivers.<br />

“I have been involved<br />

with trains since my earliest<br />

memories. I have been known,<br />

accused even, of being obsessed<br />

with them. It’s not too far from<br />

the truth.’’<br />

He collects model trains,<br />

The Al Noor mosque<br />

has a huge garden railway in<br />

his backyard, and is railway<br />

manager at Steam Scene<br />

McLeans Island. He is also<br />

involved with the Little River<br />

Railway Station Trust and a<br />

member of miniature railway at<br />

Halswell.<br />

As a grandfather, Wilson says<br />

he loves putting a smile on kids’<br />

faces and sharing his passion for<br />

trains with others. His years of<br />

experience with trains means<br />

that he knows exactly what it<br />

takes to be a good train driver.<br />

“Reasonable fitness, good<br />

health, a keen eye, a happy<br />

disposition and a willingness to<br />

make someone’s day,’’ he said.<br />

Wilson is part of a team of 40<br />

volunteers who will be helping to<br />

run the Peace Train.<br />

Co-ordinating the volunteers<br />

is Brendon Eason. His wife,<br />

Elizabeth, has also volunteered<br />

to be a driver and conductor.<br />

“My wife and I saw the article<br />

about the council seeking<br />

volunteers and thought it was<br />

awesome. What a wonderful<br />

idea to promote unity and<br />

peace through families in<br />

Christchurch. This is what we<br />

believe in and what we support,’’<br />

said Eason.<br />

“We want to bring smiles to<br />

faces and joy to people’s hearts.<br />

Even on our training run we had<br />

a group of older people taking<br />

photos and their faces told the<br />

story – they were smiling and<br />

Yusuf Islam (previously<br />

known as Cat Stevens)<br />

gifted the miniature train to<br />

Christchurch after the 2019<br />

mosque attacks on the<br />

condition it would run in<br />

a central location and that<br />

the rides would be free for<br />

the people of the city. The<br />

electric battery powered<br />

train in South Hagley Park<br />

will have its first public run<br />

on Sunday, September 4, and will run from 10am-<br />

4pm on the first and third Sunday of each month,<br />

apart from June, July and <strong>August</strong>. The 13-metre long<br />

train can carry about 16 people and is wheelchair<br />

accessible.<br />

laughing and they all wanted a<br />

ride.’’<br />

Eason said the Peace Train is<br />

an amazing gift and he cannot<br />

wait to take people for a ride<br />

on it.<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

TWO ROLLESTON College<br />

students operate a home-based<br />

production line recycling<br />

thousands of two-litre milk<br />

bottles.<br />

Levente Scott and Alex Blakie<br />

began by melting a few bottles<br />

on a barbecue, as they saw an<br />

opportunity for making sturdy<br />

plastic sheets which would have<br />

multiple applications.<br />

“We were really interested in<br />

environmental sustainability,<br />

and we saw plastic as a big problem<br />

in our community,” Levente<br />

said.<br />

They came up with the concept<br />

as part of business studies last<br />

year, and have continued developing<br />

the idea in their year 13<br />

class this year.<br />

Their production line has gone<br />

from wooden moulds shaping a<br />

few melted plastic bottles off the<br />

barbecue, to a multi-stage operation<br />

in Levente’s home garage.<br />

It is capable of recycling 145<br />

milk bottles per hour, but generally<br />

they are recycling about 100<br />

per week.<br />

They make plastic sheets 33cm<br />

by 59cm.<br />

Currently they are cutting<br />

shapes of letters and numbers<br />

from them, making decorative<br />

letter stands, mailbox numbers<br />

and educational kits. The kits<br />

are sets of letters and numbers<br />

to help children learn words and<br />

sums. One is currently being<br />

trialled at Rolleston School.<br />

Potential applications of the<br />

sheets in future include roadside<br />

reflector posts, garden stakes,<br />

table tops and outside containers<br />

such as bins.<br />

“The good thing about plastic<br />

is it can stay outside, it can resist<br />

UV, it can resist water. So any<br />

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

outside application that fits as<br />

a sheet size could be made,”<br />

Levente said.<br />

“We want to scale this business<br />

as far as we can, beyond just<br />

plastic letters. We want to create<br />

real change in the way plastic is<br />

looked at and reused.”<br />

The pair were currently<br />

investigating if they could use<br />

other plastic products, after a<br />

local business got in touch. It<br />

was wanting to donate damaged<br />

plastic coat hangers, as it was<br />

throwing out about 20,000 of<br />

these a month.<br />

Levente and Alex’s initial<br />

source of used milk bottles was<br />

Rolleston cafes, but after a while<br />

it had become time consuming<br />

to visit them all. Now they have<br />

the support of Anchor, which<br />

Turning plastic waste into usable sheets<br />

ENTERPRISE: Levente Scott (left) and Alex Blakie have built a plastics production line<br />

capable of recycling 145 two-litre milk bottles per hour.<br />

Wednesday <strong>August</strong> <strong>31</strong> <strong>2022</strong> <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong><br />

delivers used bottles directly to<br />

their door.<br />

Getting their production line<br />

up to speed had been a labour<br />

of love. A heated press machine,<br />

to replace the barbecue, was the<br />

first step.<br />

“This was a six month project<br />

and the machine works by<br />

using 12 heating cartridges<br />

placed above and below the two<br />

aluminium plates which heat the<br />

plastic to 205 deg C. A car scissor<br />

jack then presses the two plates<br />

together which removes any<br />

air bubbles and helps combine<br />

colours,” Levente explained.<br />

They had spent hundreds of<br />

hours testing moulds, cutting<br />

processes and ways to shred the<br />

plastic. At the start of this year<br />

Levente managed to convince<br />

his parents to let them convert<br />

the home garage to house their<br />

developing production line.<br />

“We spent the next eight<br />

months building five more<br />

versions of moulds, we rebuilt<br />

the heated press machine two<br />

more times. We then built a<br />

plastic shredding machine and<br />

plastic cleaning station from<br />

scratch.”<br />

The pair have entered this<br />

year’s Young Enterprise Scheme,<br />

where their business idea will<br />

be judged against those from<br />

other senior secondary students<br />

nationwide.<br />

Ellesmere beaten in shield match<br />

NORTH CANTERBURY scored early, late<br />

and held their line intact throughout to<br />

reclaim country rugby’s coveted Southbridge<br />

Shield from Ellesmere.<br />

Played for the first time since 2019 due to<br />

the Covid-19 pandemic, North Canterbury<br />

triumphed 13-0 at Lincoln Domain on Saturday<br />

on the back of two tries inside the opening<br />

10 minutes and a penalty as full-time loomed.<br />

Second five-eighths Mike Keane and loosehead<br />

prop Rawhiri Karena crossed before<br />

replacement back Scott Allin slotted a threepointer.<br />

“We sat on our lead for 70 minutes, Ellesmere<br />

only breached our line on two occasions,”<br />

said North Canterbury Rugby general<br />

manager Craig Mullen.<br />

North Canterbury previously won the shield<br />

in 2018 before Ellesmere reclaimed it the following<br />

season.<br />

“It’s been sitting gathering dust for a couple<br />

of years, we’ve been waiting to get it back. It’s<br />

the jewel in the crown of country rugby,” said<br />

Mullen of a trophy that was first up for grabs<br />

in 1923.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>’s economic boom continues<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>’s economy continues to be one of the strongest performers<br />

in the country according to new economic figures.<br />

The latest quarterly figures from economic analysts Infometrics<br />

show the district’s economy grew by 6.2% to the year to June <strong>2022</strong><br />

compared to national growth of 0.9%. In the three months to June<br />

<strong>2022</strong> <strong>Selwyn</strong> had the second fastest growing economy in the<br />

country, with GPD up 6.9%.<br />

CULTUREFEST CELEBRATING<br />

ACROSS SELWYN<br />

CultureFest is back with an even bigger line up of events, classes and exhibitions across the<br />

district to celebrate the many diverse backgrounds that make up our community.<br />

The popular annual gala has expanded, with a full line up of events over two weeks from<br />

10-25 September across the district.<br />

The annual Lincoln CultureFest day also returns to Lincoln Domain. After a year off due to<br />

COVID-19, participants are looking forward to being back with a vibrant celebration, taking<br />

all the senses on a trip around the world right at Lincoln Domain with food, games<br />

and performances.<br />

"It's going to be an exciting fortnight. There’s going to be so much to explore and enjoy about<br />

what makes Waikirikiri <strong>Selwyn</strong> what it is today and hopefully help us build closer community<br />

bonds into the future,” Council Group Manager Community Services and Facilities Denise<br />

Kidd says.<br />

Sport and dance are big parts of the wider CultureFest sessions with opportunities to try<br />

Futsal and Budo, or dance around the world with Afro dance, through traditional Chinese<br />

Lion Dance and Scottish dancing to more contemporary fusion of Bollywood and even K-pop.<br />

Other events range from an Iranian morning tea or Japanese storytime through to exhibitions<br />

on the immigrant journey experience, Rangoli Art, Italian for beginners and the return of the<br />

popular Put Down Your Roots planting day.<br />

Sharing favourite dishes is the theme for this year’s Faces of <strong>Selwyn</strong> series. End each day<br />

by tuning into 96.9 PlainsFM at 5pm to listen as a series of <strong>Selwyn</strong> residents share their<br />

journeys to <strong>Selwyn</strong> and how to cook their favourite dish live on air, Monday, Tuesday and<br />

Thursdays from 12-22 September. Or you can listen via the podcasts on Spotify, iTunes,<br />

Celebrating outstanding community service<br />

in Malvern<br />

The long-awaited Malvern Community Service Awards returned last Monday, to recognise<br />

outstanding voluntary service in the Malvern community.<br />

After a two year gap due to the COVID-19 pandemic, 11 people received awards at the ceremony.<br />

The Hororata Community Response Team was recognised for its efforts supporting and<br />

preparing the community for Civil Defence emergencies.<br />

Nine Community Service Awards were also given to long-standing volunteers.<br />

Rob Frew was recognised for his prolonged involvement with the Darfield Cricket Club,<br />

coaching young Malvern cricketers and looking after the cricket grounds.<br />

Allison Rosanowski was<br />

acknowledged for supporting the<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> District Sister City Committee<br />

for many years, connecting <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

to our sister cities including in Japan,<br />

China and Indonesia and encouraging<br />

educational opportunities.<br />

Melissa Jebson received her award<br />

for promoting and organising many<br />

performing arts events in <strong>Selwyn</strong> and<br />

Sara Syme for her volunteer work with<br />

Plunket and the Darfield Toy Library.<br />

Employment continued to grow strongly, with a 7.7% increase<br />

in <strong>Selwyn</strong> residents employed compared to the previous year –<br />

more than double the national average of 3.2%, while <strong>Selwyn</strong>’s<br />

unemployment rate was at 2.2% compared to 3.3% nationally.<br />

Consumer spending increased by 13.3% compared with 2.8%<br />

growth across Canterbury, underpinned, Infometrics says, by<br />

the district’s strong population growth. This was also shown in<br />

the ongoing building boom, with the Council’s consents team<br />

consenting over 1,100 new houses in the first half of this year.<br />

House prices continued to rise, with the Infometrics figures<br />

showing house values up almost 30% from June last year,<br />

compared to a 9% growth nationally.<br />

The popularity of <strong>Selwyn</strong> as a place to visit was also underlined,<br />

with the amount spent by tourists in <strong>Selwyn</strong> grew 10.7% over the<br />

year to June <strong>2022</strong> compared to the previous year, as domestic<br />

tourism continued its bounce back from the pandemic lockdowns.<br />

Get home safe – ride to survive<br />

Ride to survive is the message for <strong>Selwyn</strong> motorcyclists.<br />

With spring in the air and the promise of fine days to come<br />

motorcyclists around the country are gearing up to get back on the<br />

road and enjoy the better riding weather.<br />

In the past three years, three riders have died and 43 have been<br />

injured in crashes on <strong>Selwyn</strong> roads.<br />

The statistics show the main cause of motorcycle crashes in<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> is from the riders’ own actions, mainly through poor<br />

handling techniques, poor observation, poor road positioning or<br />

alcohol. They also show these accidents most commonly happen in<br />

spring and summer, during the day, in dry conditions and on<br />

main roads.<br />

The message is clear, riders need to ride to survive, <strong>Selwyn</strong> Road<br />

Safety Advisor Mike Patterson says.<br />

“We want everyone to get home safe. When we look at the<br />

statistics the main cause of crashes is from riders’ own actions. So<br />

there’s an onus on riders to ride within your ability, take care and be<br />

vigilant. You need to leave yourself some space to react if<br />

things change.”<br />

There are simple tips riders can take to keep themselves safe, Mr<br />

Patterson says, such as slow down, keep a good road position to<br />

see and be seen and don’t presume you’ve been seen by other<br />

road users.<br />

Riders in <strong>Selwyn</strong> also have access to free, expert on-road coaching<br />

sessions through the Ride Forever programme, supported by<br />

the Council.<br />

Ride Forever is a national programme that offers multiple levels of<br />

on-road coaching available to suit all needs and experience levels.<br />

The coaches offer an eight hour interactive instruction session<br />

and if you book through any of the three Canterbury trainers, the<br />

Council will cover the cost.<br />

Pauline Pearce and Gerald Innes were recognised as long-serving volunteers for several Malvern<br />

groups and volunteering at the Hororata Highland Games and Glow Festival.<br />

Val McKenzie, Diane Woodward received their awards for several volunteer roles including<br />

serving as JPs and their involvement in a range of community groups and activities.<br />

Gwen Heffernan was acknowledged for her efforts as a volunteer and member of the Greendale<br />

Golf Club, and says she was very grateful to receive the award.<br />

“I feel it’s a great privilege, Greendale Golf Club has meant a lot to me, and I think all these clubs<br />

need volunteers to survive, so I just feel a part of the team. You just feel as though you are doing<br />

something for the community.”<br />

Want to be your own boss?<br />

Jim’s Mobile Dog Grooming<br />

has become so popular with<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>’s dog lovers that they<br />

are not growing fast enough<br />

to meet demands. All of their<br />

groomers are so busy, that they<br />

are in desperate need of more<br />

grooming trailers on the road,<br />

says regional franchiser Jill<br />

Smolenksi.<br />

Jim’s is a well-known and trusted brand and<br />

known for fully supporting their franchisees in their<br />

business.<br />

Jim’s will fully train you to groom<br />

dogs and provide you with all that<br />

you need to get started.<br />

experienced with a deep love and respect for dogs<br />

and passion for the industry, providing empathic<br />

care and lots of cuddles; leaving your best friend<br />

success of the business as it takes the pressure off<br />

dropping-off and picking-up dogs from groomers<br />

environment. Owners don’t even have to be there.<br />

Debut victory for<br />

Mandalay Bay<br />

• By Joshua Smith<br />

A PLETHORA of talented<br />

young pacers have carried<br />

Brian O’Meara’s famous<br />

silks, and he may have<br />

unearthed another at<br />

Rangiora on Sunday.<br />

Mandalay Bay was making<br />

his debut in the Sefton<br />

Pace (2600m) and was<br />

handled patiently by driver<br />

Jim Curtin after making a<br />

quiet beginning.<br />

The three-year-old gelding<br />

tracked fellow debutant<br />

Michael Caine throughout<br />

and attained the coveted<br />

one-one position with a lap<br />

to go.<br />

With 550m to go driver<br />

Ben Hope pushed the go<br />

button on Michael Caine,<br />

who left his rivals flatfooted,<br />

however, Mandalay<br />

Bay was able to respond<br />

and quickly recaptured<br />

the back of Michael Caine<br />

before improving threewide<br />

and powering over<br />

the top of his adversary to<br />

win by three-quarters of a<br />

length.<br />

O’Meara was pleased<br />

with the Somebeachsomewhere<br />

gelding’s debut<br />

effort and believes he has a<br />

bright future as he continues<br />

to build into his frame.<br />

“He went well for such<br />

a big horse. He would be a<br />

good 16 hands, he is bigger<br />

than most horses out<br />

there,” O’Meara said.<br />

“I would think down the<br />

line he will get a lot better<br />

but I was pleased with<br />

what he achieved today.”<br />

O’Meara purchased<br />

Mandalay Bay out of<br />

Studholme Bloodstock’s<br />

2020 New Zealand<br />

Bloodstock Standardbred<br />

National Yearling Sale<br />

draft for $30,000, noting<br />

his pedigree had plenty of<br />

appeal.<br />

His dam, On The Town,<br />

won five races and ran<br />

third in the Listed Northern<br />

Mares Classic (2200m)<br />

for trainer Barry Purdon.<br />

Her siblings were equally<br />

as impressive, with her<br />

full-brothers including<br />

16-win gelding On The<br />

Razzle, Group Two performer<br />

On The Cards, and<br />

four-win gelding On The<br />

Rantan.<br />

“The mother was quite<br />

a handy mare and I think<br />

she and her brothers won<br />

about $900,000,” O’Meara<br />

said.<br />

“None of them raced at<br />

two and took a bit of time,<br />

and I don’t think any of<br />

them were as tall as him. I<br />

am hopeful he will get a bit<br />

better.”<br />

Mandalay Bay’s year<br />

older half-brother Anything<br />

Goes is also showing<br />

plenty of promise for trainer<br />

Steve Dolan, having won<br />

three and placed in two of<br />

his five starts to date.<br />

FRONT:<br />

Mandalay<br />

Bay<br />

nearing<br />

the<br />

winning<br />

post at<br />

Rangiora<br />

on<br />

Sunday.<br />

O’Meara is now planning<br />

to give his gelding a<br />

short break.<br />

“I might tip him out for a<br />

week or two and then reset<br />

him and probably race him<br />

a bit more next time in,”<br />

he said.<br />

Meanwhile, O’Meara<br />

is looking forward to the<br />

return of Di Caprio, who<br />

was badly checked by<br />

Folklore when first-up at<br />

Addington Raceway earlier<br />

this month.<br />

“He took quite a check<br />

in his first race. We were a<br />

bit worried about that but<br />

I think he still went pretty<br />

good from the whack he<br />

took,” O’Meara said.<br />

The Group 1 New<br />

Zealand Trotting Cup<br />

(3200m), a race he ran fifth<br />

in two years ago, remains<br />

the main aim of the spring.<br />

The Shadow Play entire<br />

was in good form last<br />

spring, placing in the<br />

Group 3 Maurice Holmes<br />

Vase (2600m) before<br />

winning the Group 3 New<br />

Brighton Cup (2600m),<br />

however, he was ruled out<br />

of the remainder of spring<br />

racing through foot issues.<br />

“If he comes up as good<br />

as he did last year he will<br />

head towards the cup,”<br />

O’Meara said.<br />

O’Meara said the sevenyear-old<br />

will likely next<br />

race in a fortnight.<br />

mixes, stones and more,<br />

Intelligro has you covered<br />

intelligro’s top spring products<br />

Vegepods<br />

These are a great way to grow a garden all year round. With the<br />

benefits of a raised garden bed, these pods are at the perfect<br />

height for working while standing up, and out of reach of pests.<br />

Vegepods are available in Small, Medium and Large and start<br />

from $209. Order online at www.igro.co.nz or pop in to see us at<br />

261 Manion Road, Weedons 7677<br />

Veggie<br />

Garden Mix<br />

Our Veggie Garden<br />

Mix has been<br />

designed to provide<br />

your plants with the<br />

nutrients they need<br />

for healthy growth<br />

and development.<br />

Organic Compost<br />

Lawn Topdressing Mix<br />

A crowd favourite, our lawn mix is ideal for<br />

topdressing or overseeding lawns that need some<br />

love. Suitable to sow straight into, or to pop<br />

ready lawn on top of, this mix will create a great<br />

growing environment for the seed to germinate.<br />

Our Organic Compost is blended<br />

from sustainable, natural, and<br />

carefully selected products and is<br />

independently certified through<br />

BioGro. Dig compost through<br />

your soil to boost the nutrients<br />

and condition your area before<br />

planting. We have had fantastic<br />

reviews from customers who just<br />

love our compost, and it is one<br />

of our best sellers all-year-round!<br />

Birdie’s Garden Beds<br />

Birdie’s garden beds are made with high quality steel and are<br />

built to last. Designed and manufactured in Australia, they’re<br />

built to sustain the elements whilst still providing a great<br />

look to your outdoor space. These beds are easy to construct<br />

and are suitable for a wide range of plants from veggies to<br />

fruit, herbs or flowers. Available in 3 different sizes and<br />

colours, there is sure to be something that catches your eye.<br />

Growing Veggies<br />

Growing veggies is a great way to get<br />

the whole family involved in gardening.<br />

It is very rewarding eating meals that<br />

have veggies you have grown yourself.<br />

The other bonus of growing your own<br />

vegetables is that you can grow what<br />

you what, you know what they are<br />

growing in, and you have confidence in<br />

knowing they are free from nasty sprays.<br />

1. Pick a sunny position for your veggie garden<br />

with shelter from the wind<br />

2. If you’re using timber, untreated is best. If using<br />

treated timber line with black plastic.<br />

3. Having a good quality soil is key for growing<br />

a bumper crop. For leafy, above the ground<br />

produce, choose Intelligro Veggie Garden Mix.<br />

For root crops, (potatoes, radishes etc) choose<br />

Intelligro Garden Soil Mix. A soil blend is<br />

preferred by these plants.<br />

4. Make sure you plant quality, in-season<br />

seedlings.<br />

5. For a successful veggie garden make sure you<br />

establish a regular watering routine. Plants will<br />

bolt to seed if they are stressed due to a lack<br />

of water.<br />

Prepare to plant potatoes<br />

before the soil warms up<br />

Potatoes<br />

Such a staple and stalwart crop,<br />

you need to start gearing up for<br />

the upcoming potato-planting<br />

season.<br />

Those of you who know your<br />

spuds will already have seed<br />

potatoes quietly “chitting” away<br />

somewhere cool indoors. Once<br />

the sprouts are finger length and<br />

the soil has warmed a smidge,<br />

they can be planted out in<br />

September.<br />

The sprouting phase does take<br />

four to six weeks; hence you need<br />

to get a wriggle on if you want<br />

fresh new potatoes in December.<br />

While the seed spuds are<br />

sprouting, take an hour or two<br />

to prepare the soil, work it over<br />

with a fork, blend in well-rotted<br />

compost and, a week before<br />

planting, work through some<br />

potato fertiliser.<br />

Adding the spud food prior to<br />

planting prevents burning the<br />

delicately sprouted seed potatoes.<br />

Vegetables<br />

If your patch has been vacant<br />

over winter, now’s the time to get<br />

it ready for spring planting before<br />

the soil warms up.<br />

Hoe off weeds and, when the<br />

soil isn’t boggy, turn it over and<br />

blend in layers of compost or<br />

sheep pellets – one or the other,<br />

CARE: If you want new potatoes for Christmas dinner now<br />

is the time to get the prepared for planting.<br />

not both. Then, rake it level and<br />

leave to settle for a few weeks.<br />

Seedlings to plant out now<br />

include silver beet. Look for<br />

brightly coloured hybrids or<br />

the mega-sized ford hook giant’,<br />

which can grow stems up to 1m<br />

long. Rows of radishes can go<br />

in, too. Try white hailstone for<br />

something different, or stick to<br />

your knitting with reliable round<br />

red ones. Remember, both the<br />

leaves and roots can be eaten.<br />

Asparagus crowns are dormant<br />

and ready to be planted. Look for<br />

the biggest and fattest clumps,<br />

and avoid anything that are dry<br />

and withered.<br />

Spring flowers<br />

With the official start of spring<br />

just around the corner it is time<br />

to start dusting of those vases and<br />

filling them with spring flowers<br />

such as daffodils, snow drops,<br />

hyacinths, anemone, ranunculus<br />

and irises. When picking these<br />

flowers, only pick the flower<br />

stem.<br />

Leave the foliage in the ground<br />

and allow it to die down naturally,<br />

as this supplies the hard-working<br />

bulb all the nutrients it needs to<br />

produce flowers for next season.<br />

Fill the vase to the top with<br />

water and change it every third<br />

day.<br />

PANSIES ARE the perfect plant<br />

for just about any garden. They’re<br />

hardy and easy to grow.<br />

They’ll survive wind, rain<br />

and even frosts. And, just as<br />

importantly they’re stunning<br />

and striking – with a colour and<br />

pattern for just about any style of<br />

garden.<br />

To plant, choose a spot in the<br />

garden that receives morning sun<br />

and has good drainage.<br />

Next, boost soil fertility and<br />

encourage bright, healthy blooms<br />

by adding organic compost and<br />

fertiliser.<br />

Once that’s done, dig a wide,<br />

shallow hole for each plant and<br />

space the holes 10 to 20cm apart.<br />

Make sure the holes are wide<br />

enough so the plant’s roots don’t<br />

become cramped.<br />

planting spot, you can’t look past<br />

a hanging basket. In<br />

fact, I can’t think of a flower<br />

more perfectly designed for this.<br />

Just remember not to over<br />

water. If you’re not sure when to<br />

water, put your finger in the soil<br />

to test. If it’s still moist, don’t add<br />

any water.<br />

Once planted you don’t really<br />

need to pay any more attention<br />

to your pansies. Simply make<br />

sure the soil doesn’t get too dry<br />

and pick the flowers as they fade<br />

to encourage more blooms.<br />

MY PRIDE AND JOY<br />

Youths in Action organise<br />

Motukarara Car Show<br />

These days, it’s not uncommon to hear negative<br />

things about youth’s actions. However, four Year<br />

12 Christchurch Boys High school students,<br />

Jak O’Connell, Sam Tilson, Robbie De Cuevas<br />

and Ben Harris, are proving that youth can<br />

make a positive difference, not only in our local<br />

community but also for all New Zealanders.<br />

They are actively supporting the “I AM HOPE”<br />

youth and community-focused support group<br />

run by The Key to Life Charitable Trust, started<br />

by Mike King. The students have organised the<br />

Motukarara Car Show on the 11th of September<br />

<strong>2022</strong>. This show will be the second undertaking<br />

to raise money and bring greater community<br />

awareness to support this vital cause.<br />

School project<br />

The Motukarara Car Show was developed from<br />

a school business project. The students decided<br />

to use a similar example from a few years ago.<br />

Most of the group have a keen interest in cars<br />

but no experience running any events. However,<br />

Ben says they wanted to improve on the concept<br />

saying, “we could try that and hopefully do it<br />

better”.<br />

This project’s cause was very personal to one<br />

of the students whose uncle, in his 40s, passed<br />

away from suicide. Through the process, the<br />

family received help from I AM HOPE. Stating,<br />

“Mental health is a big problem in New Zealand<br />

currently”, the students decided to raise money<br />

to support the cause and bring awareness to the<br />

community and how different organisations are<br />

available to help.<br />

Ups and downs<br />

The organisers have had ups and downs while<br />

learning to run the business, working as a group<br />

and collaborating. One area they also struggled<br />

with initially was convincing food vendors to<br />

join the event without any indication of expected<br />

numbers. However, since the excellent turnout<br />

from their first event, they now have help from<br />

numerous people and clubs and the community’s<br />

support. Lexie’s Coffee (EFTPOS available), Pita<br />

Pit, cold drinks, bacon butties and sausages will<br />

be available this year.<br />

Expecting 30 people for their first show on the<br />

26th of June, they were surprised when around<br />

200 cars showed up, with $3000 raised! As there’s<br />

been a shortage of car shows due to Covid-19<br />

and plenty of interest on Facebook, they expect<br />

1800 people for the upcoming show. This family<br />

fun day welcomes all types of vehicles and people<br />

interested in cars.<br />

Support Jak, Sam, Robbie and Ben, who<br />

want to make a difference by raising funds<br />

and highlighting the worthwhile I AM HOPE<br />

by going to the Motukarara Car Show at<br />

Motukarara Raceway, entry off Park Rd, from<br />

10am - 2pm. Entry is cash only - $10 for a car<br />

and driver or $20 for driver and passengers.<br />

Wednesday <strong>August</strong> <strong>31</strong> <strong>2022</strong> <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> 33<br />

Be prepared for spring driving<br />

With a reputation for fantastic service that is second<br />

to none, the owners of Jones Road Auto, Lisa and Nigel,<br />

along with the whole team, will get you motoring<br />

safely and prepared for spring driving. They offer full<br />

mechanical repairs and servicing on all vehicle makes<br />

and models with the latest in diagnostic equipment as<br />

well as a stock of tyres, batteries and a range of parts to<br />

meet all your motoring needs. Customers can also enjoy<br />

a coffee and Wi-Fi in the inviting waiting room, and free<br />

courtesy cars are also available.<br />

Our weather is often unpredictable, and this year<br />

has been no exception. Spring is when you can drive<br />

through the severe Nor’wester winds, unexpected<br />

snowfall, or flooding. As a result, your car needs to<br />

be driving at its best. With a staff numbering 19,<br />

Jones Road Auto is committed to providing excellent<br />

customer service and top-quality work to ensure your<br />

car is well-maintained and running as efficiently and<br />

economically as possible.<br />

Spring safety checklist<br />

Check and replace wiper blades if damaged or<br />

ineffective, and check suspension and wheel alignment.<br />

With low light levels in spring, brake lights and<br />

headlights must also function correctly, so ensure<br />

bulbs are clear and bright. Tyres are essential for safe<br />

driving, so check that all tyres (including your spare)<br />

have sufficient tread and are correctly inflated for<br />

your vehicle. Also, check your battery as it has had to<br />

work harder during harsh winter conditions. Keep the<br />

battery connections clean, tight and corrosion-free;<br />

if you experience starting issues, it may be time for a<br />

replacement. Jones Road Auto is on hand to provide<br />

repairs, parts and servicing.<br />

Jones Road Auto considers the customer their number<br />

one priority, and this has been proven with nearly<br />

10,000 happy customers! Jones Road Auto is your<br />

trusted local automotive workshop as a one-stop shop<br />

for vehicle repairs and servicing.<br />

Wednesday <strong>August</strong> <strong>31</strong> <strong>2022</strong> <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> 35<br />

Off-road champion and city slicker<br />

I FIND IT HARD to believe there<br />

has been a model nameplate that<br />

has been around for longer than<br />

I have.<br />

Well, it’s not older by much,<br />

but Toyota’s Land Cruiser has just<br />

reached 70 years in production<br />

and to celebrate a new model has<br />

just landed.<br />

While its basic concept hasn’t<br />

changed, the Land Cruiser 300<br />

is very fresh, it gets a brand new<br />

engine and, what’s more, there is<br />

a GR option that adds ingredients<br />

through Toyota’s performance<br />

arm – Gazoo Racing.<br />

The Land Cruiser 300 has a<br />

platform that has served the test<br />

of time in terms of how it has<br />

been engineered for purpose, its<br />

reputation as one of the industry’s<br />

best off-road drivelines is still<br />

well intact. The ladder chassis,<br />

the four-wheel-drive mechanicals<br />

and a big engine all combine<br />

to provide a vehicle that is an<br />

off-road champion and a station<br />

wagon/sport utility vehicle with<br />

few competitors.<br />

The Land Cruiser 300 (no<br />

longer 200) in Gazoo Racing<br />

form gets plenty of adornments,<br />

the interior is coloured with rich<br />

red leather highlights, sporty<br />

GR badging and logos splashed<br />

throughout the model.<br />

Under the bonnet things<br />

have changed dramatically, no<br />

longer does that wonderful V8<br />

turbo-diesel lurk there, Toyota<br />

has lopped off two cylinders, the<br />

new model now has a diesel-fed<br />

twin-turbocharged V6. If you are<br />

thinking that’s a backward step,<br />

think again, the new engine is<br />

more powerful (up 27kW and<br />

50Nm), it is a lot lighter and,<br />

according to Toyota, at 10.2-litres<br />

per 100km/h, it has an improved<br />

combined cycle fuel usage average<br />

over its predecessor.<br />

For the record, during my time<br />

with the evaluation car the fuel<br />

usage readout was sitting around<br />

12l/100km with 9.8l/100km available<br />

instantaneously at 100km/h,<br />

the engine loping over gently at<br />

just 1400rpm.<br />

In terms of power, the new V6<br />

is rated at 227kW and a massive<br />

700Nm of torque, both outputs<br />

available low in the rev band at<br />

4000rpm and 1600rpm respectively,<br />

and that is the type of<br />

power delivery you want when it<br />

comes to off-road travel, a gentle<br />

harnessing of power and delivered<br />

smoothly through a series of<br />

complex drive modes.<br />

Another big change for Land<br />

Cruiser 300 is the fitment of a<br />

10-speed automatic transmission,<br />

it is delightful with undetectable<br />

shifts and ratios that cater for all<br />

environments. I would have liked<br />

to see paddle shifters but even<br />

though they aren’t fitted, manual<br />

changes can be made from the<br />

main gearshift lever itself.<br />

The Land Cruiser 300 has an<br />

uncanny willingness beneath<br />

the throttle and it does so with<br />

GRIP: Off-road tracks are not trouble to the Land Cruiser.<br />

TOYOTA LAND CRUISER 300 GR SPORT: Gazoo Racing has had an influence on trim details.<br />

a characteristic V6 growl that is<br />

delightful to listen to. Where the<br />

Gazoo Racing aspect comes in<br />

is through a choice of multiple<br />

sport driving modes, they are<br />

largely functioned through electronics<br />

hastening engine urgency,<br />

ideal for the long haul over the<br />

Akaroa hill or other demanding<br />

situations. For interest’s sake<br />

the new engine has the ability to<br />

take 2630kg from a standstill to<br />

100km/h in under 7sec, which I<br />

think is pretty impressive.<br />

The Land Cruiser has ride quality<br />

to envy, it merely floats over<br />

bumps and lumps, yet has the<br />

rugged essentials so that off-road<br />

travel can be completed capably.<br />

That is the secret of Land Cruiser,<br />

it is soft and sultry to drive in<br />

the everyday environment, yet<br />

it is technically superior when it<br />

comes to travel off-road.<br />

I took the evaluation car on<br />

some easy tracks that lead parallel<br />

to one of our main rivers, it was<br />

perfect for the role with huge grip<br />

and drive programs which can be<br />

dialled in depending on the surface<br />

likely to be encountered. The<br />

main switch is for low and high<br />

range, but there are also a host<br />

of other mechanisms that can be<br />

initiated in advance of the terrain<br />

ahead. The driver can dial up the<br />

appropriate setting through those<br />

choices.<br />

The Land Cruiser is complex,<br />

there’s no denying that, but the<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 6.7sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 10.2/100km<br />

result is extraordinary off-road<br />

prowess, it is so capable the driver<br />

can glean confidence from the<br />

vehicle, and yet at the same time<br />

each occupant is cocooned in a<br />

lap of luxury.<br />

If the GR treatment isn’t to<br />

your liking and its price tag of<br />

$147,900 is a little overwhelming,<br />

then there are VX and VX<br />

Limited variants of the new 300<br />

series, they list at $127,990 and<br />

$141,990 respectively. If you are<br />

serious about off-road travel and<br />

want all of the best mechanisms<br />

in place, then the GR with its kinetic<br />

dynamic suspension system<br />

will give you the best ride quality<br />

and performance off-road.<br />

Even though the Land Cruiser<br />

has been given a massive refresh,<br />

it is still the quintessential family<br />

wagon with vast interior space<br />

and associated comfort.<br />

I picked up a friend from the<br />

central city and took him to the<br />

airport. He travels light so there<br />

was no problem with cargo space<br />

but even though it is a big vehicle<br />

I felt comfortable tackling a Hereford<br />

St car park. At almost 5m in<br />

length it was a bit of a mission but<br />

with good vision all round and<br />

clever parking assistance devices<br />

the job was completed without<br />

concern.<br />

Convenience features are too<br />

numerous to mention, but there<br />

are the usual high profile items<br />

that add to the luxury feel within<br />

the vehicle. It’s also important to<br />

mention that the Land Cruiser is<br />

rated with a 3500kg tow figure,<br />

that’s massive and way in advance<br />

of the weight that I loaded onto<br />

the tow bar when I took advantage<br />

of the free Mitre 10 trailer<br />

hire after purchasing several<br />

lengths of Marley guttering for<br />

the garage spouting project I’m<br />

working on.<br />

The Land Cruiser 300 serves<br />

in the everyday role. I’m not 100<br />

per cent convinced with the GR<br />

badging, Gazoo Racing has done<br />

an important role in building a<br />

sporting image in the Toyota lineup,<br />

the Land Cruiser is no sports<br />

car, it is designed for a completely<br />

different role.<br />

But I will say I do like the<br />

interior GR treatment; it wouldn’t<br />

be fair to say the Land Cruiser<br />

300 is ageing gracefully, it is<br />

looking extremely youthful.<br />

<strong>2022</strong> OTIRA - TAIPO POSSUM CONTROL OPERATION UPDATE<br />

Vector Free Marlborough Limited (VFML) wishes to further advise the public of its intention<br />

to aerially apply the toxin Sodium fluoroacetate (1080) to parts of the Westland, South<br />

Westland Alps and Westcoast Divide TMA’s for the purpose of controlling possums. The<br />

Otira – Taipo operation is being carried out on behalf of OSPRI as part of its TBfree New<br />

Zealand programme, which aims to eradicate bovine tuberculosis from wildlife vectors that<br />

pose a risk to farmed cattle herds in downstream areas.<br />

Persistent heavy snow and unfavourable weather over recent weeks have delayed the<br />

planned commencement of this operation. However, these prohibitive conditions are<br />

beginning to recede and VFML is again assessing favourable weather opportunities in order<br />

to commence the operation.<br />

Description of Area<br />

The Otira – Taipo permission area takes in approximately 30,930 hectares of the Otira<br />

and Taipo catchments. The boundary of the permission area extends from the SH73<br />

bridge over Big Wainihinihi River to Aickens corner near the confluence of the Otira and<br />

Taramakau rivers, then follows Aicken Ridge upstream toward Goat Pass at the head of<br />

the Deception Valley. From Goat Pass it extends west along the snowline of the Southern<br />

Alps, crosses SH73 at the summit of Arthur’s Pass and continues west into the headwaters<br />

of the Taipo catchment. From the Taipo catchment it follows the Campbell Range in a<br />

northerly direction, thence along Razorback Ridge to Big Wainihinhi River. Most land in the<br />

permission area is administered by the Department of Conservation but several small tracts<br />

of land held by various private and institutional owners are also included. State Highway 73<br />

(Otira Highway) and the settlement of Otira Village are both excluded from the operation. A<br />

detailed map may be obtained from VFML as per contact details below.<br />

Commencement Date<br />

Subject to favourable weather, control is now planned to commence from Friday 26 <strong>August</strong><br />

<strong>2022</strong>, with the aerial application of non-toxic cereal pre-feed pellets. This will be followed<br />

approximately 7-10 days later by the aerial application of bait containing biodegradable<br />

sodium fluoroacetate (1080). All work is weather dependent, and commencement may<br />

be later than indicated. In the event of an extended delay, further notices will be placed to<br />

advise the public.<br />

Bait Description<br />

• Pre-feed - Non-toxic cereal-based pellet, approximately 16mm long and cinnamonlured.<br />

Prefeed for this operation will be dyed green as part of a suite of measures to<br />

minimise risk to kea.<br />

• Toxic bait - Cereal-based pellet, approximately 20mm long, cinnamon- lured and dyed<br />

green with a toxic loading of 0.15% Sodium fluoroacetate (1080).<br />

Note, hand-laid 1080 may be used for supplemental ground-based control in areas unsuited<br />

for aerial application.<br />

Precautions<br />

The public are reminded of the danger that toxic baits and possum carcasses pose,<br />

particularly to children and dogs.<br />

• DO NOT TOUCH OR EAT BAITS<br />

• Children must be kept under strict supervision in the control area<br />

• Dogs must be kept under strict control at all times and not have access to, or be taken<br />

into, the control area, as they are particularly susceptible to harm from contact with<br />

toxic baits and poisoned carcasses. The risk that poisoned carcasses pose to dogs<br />

may extend downstream of the control area.<br />

• Toxin warning signs will be installed at main public entry points and the public are<br />

reminded that it is an offence to remove this warning signage. Please follow the<br />

instructions on the signs.<br />

• Game animals should not be sold or taken for eating from within or adjacent to this<br />

area until it is declared clear of pesticides.<br />

If you suspect poisoning<br />

Contact your local hospital, or dial 111<br />

National Poisons Centre 0800 POISON - 0800 764 766<br />

In the case of a domestic animal being poisoned, contact a local veterinarian<br />

Selling your property?<br />

First impressions count,<br />

get rid of the clutter.<br />

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ll know that getting rid of clutter is one of the keys to selling property<br />

fast and at a good price. Good storage systems can look cool in their own right, and help organise your clutter.<br />

Good storage ideas are abundant and<br />

all manner of products are available<br />

to make homes more minimalistic.<br />

While it’s nice to buy your storage from<br />

designer homewares stores, the likes of<br />

The Warehouse and Kmart sell many<br />

simple products for masking clutter.<br />

Fabric storage cubes are a great start<br />

for disguising the clutter. They fit neatly<br />

into shelves and wardrobes and thanks<br />

to competition from the big department<br />

stores, can cost $10 or less each. You’ll<br />

also find wicker, felt, cotton, woven and<br />

metal baskets for a song.<br />

Another clever idea,<br />

is to buy a cheap set of<br />

melamine shelves for use<br />

in your wardrobe. A set<br />

of shelves does much the<br />

same job as an expensive<br />

wardrobe fit out. You can<br />

move the shelf heights to<br />

accommodate shoes and<br />

boots. It looks good, but<br />

costs little.<br />

Another wardrobe<br />

organisation is a Wardrobe<br />

Starter Kit from Hardware<br />

stores. While you’re there,<br />

check out bicycle storage hooks as well.<br />

As well as being practical, storage<br />

products can make a design statement.<br />

The important thing is to be consistent.<br />

don’t, for example, buy storage cubes<br />

in different colours. If you’re looking<br />

for really clever home storage ideas take<br />

a tip from the tiny home movement.<br />

Catherine Foster who wrote Small House<br />

Living, downsized her life to under 90sq<br />

m and has interviewed Kiwis who live<br />

in architecturally designed homes of that<br />

size or smaller.<br />

Each and every house in<br />

Foster’s book uses storage<br />

effectively to tame their<br />

belongings. Some have done<br />

it on the smell of an oily rag,<br />

sometimes buying pre-cut heavy<br />

duty plywood that only has to be<br />

screwed together, she says.<br />

Garages and lofts are house vendors’<br />

friends. The garage is one of the few<br />

places in the house that buyers won’t<br />

be put off by a little extra stuff, but the<br />

more that can be hidden away in stacked<br />

crates the better. Consider using flat pack<br />

cupboards that can be taken with you.<br />

“The most effective way of using these<br />

is to find a wall where the whole area can<br />

be covered floor to ceiling,”<br />

“Simple carpentry like this is dIY level<br />

if you’re handy, or get a handyman in for<br />

a few hours, but make sure it is excluded<br />

from the list of chattels on the sale<br />

agreement.”<br />

Loft spaces are often wasted space<br />

in Kiwi homes. A relatively cheap way<br />

to open up the space is to install a loft<br />

ladder. You will be amazed at what people<br />

use the additional storage space for, once<br />

they’ve installed it.<br />

Cheap clever storage ideas aren’t just<br />

limited to the interior of the house,<br />

garage and loft. The Warehouse, Mitre<br />

10 & other hardware stores sell garden<br />

storage to hide away things usually left<br />

outside.<br />

Foldable garden storage boxes that cost<br />

from around $99 can be used to store<br />

garden tools, outdoor cushions and pool<br />

paraphernalia. The next step up is a cheap<br />

garden shed for around $200 upwards<br />

from Mitre 10, Bunnings Warehouse and<br />

other stores.<br />

Finally, if you’re looking for more<br />

inspiration Google “storage ideas”, search<br />

the same on Pinterest, or check out books<br />

on the subject from your local library.<br />

You’ll be amazed at how many everyday<br />

items can be repurposed for storage at the<br />

same time as adding design excellence to<br />

your home.<br />

Disclosure rules<br />

when selling a home<br />

Real estate advertisements are designed<br />

to make every property look like a dream<br />

buy. That’s why they gloss over the negative<br />

aspects and linger on the good points,<br />

wanting you to be drawn in by the sundrenched<br />

location rather than be put off by<br />

lack of garaging. It’s no crime to gloss over<br />

a property’s quirks, but lying by omission<br />

or design about more serious matters is<br />

not allowed. If you do this when selling<br />

your property you may be at risk of being<br />

sued by the purchaser.<br />

When you’re ready to sell your property<br />

it’s a good idea to get legal advice about<br />

your obligations before you sign an agency<br />

agreement. Most of these agreements,<br />

which set out the terms and conditions<br />

of your contract with the real estate<br />

agent, require you to confirm that you are<br />

unaware of any undisclosed defects in the<br />

property and that you haven’t withheld any<br />

information about it.<br />

As a seller, you must also confirm<br />

that your property has all the necessary<br />

consents and code compliance certificates<br />

for any building work. Any outstanding<br />

consents, including ones that involve any<br />

works at a neighbour’s property, should be<br />

disclosed to the agent.<br />

This is important for several reasons.<br />

Licensed real estate agents have clear<br />

obligations when it comes to disclosure.<br />

They must not mislead a seller or<br />

a potential buyer, or withhold any<br />

information. While it’s not up to the<br />

agent to uncover any hidden defects in a<br />

property, they must tell any prospective<br />

buyers what they know.<br />

Under the Real Estate Agents Act 2008,<br />

if licensed real estate agents suspect that a<br />

property may have a defect then they are<br />

obliged to ask the seller about it, or advise<br />

potential buyers of any risks. For example,<br />

if a property is next door to a proposed<br />

new development, or if it’s in an area that’s<br />

been subject to flooding, the agent must<br />

tell prospective buyers rather than turning<br />

a blind eye.<br />

If your property may be prone to<br />

weathertightness issues thanks to its<br />

age or cladding, then the agent may<br />

have to disclose this potential risk to<br />

prospective buyers. If it doesn’t have any<br />

weathertightness problems it may be<br />

worth getting this confirmed in an expert<br />

report by a qualified building inspector<br />

who has professional indemnity insurance,<br />

understands the strict legal requirements<br />

of their role and carries out their work<br />

in accordance with the New Zealand<br />

Property Inspection Standard. This will<br />

help make the sale process as efficient as<br />

possible.<br />

If you know there are issues with the<br />

property, whether it’s something small like<br />

a garage door not working properly, or a<br />

bigger deal like an unconsented deck, it’s<br />

best to discuss them with the agent you are<br />

working with. They can help you decide<br />

how to manage the problem, whether that<br />

means fixing it, or disclosing it to potential<br />

buyers. However, a licensed real estate<br />

agent must not disclose any problems with<br />

your property to buyers without getting<br />

your consent first. If a seller doesn’t agree<br />

on a disclosure, the agent is required to<br />

stop working for them rather than disclose<br />

any defects without consent.<br />

These rules offer more protection to<br />

buyers than the traditional attitude of<br />

‘caveat emptor’ (buyer beware), which<br />

assumed that the seller would always<br />

know more than the buyer and any sale<br />

was at the buyer’s risk. However, buyers<br />

should always do their own research<br />

about a property before signing a sale<br />

and purchase agreement. Buyers should<br />

also ask the agent about anything they are<br />

concerned about, no matter how trivial it<br />

may seem. It’s far better to get an answer<br />

upfront than find out when it’s too late.<br />

Your house is on the market and you<br />

hope to get a good price. While market<br />

performance will largely influence this,<br />

presenting your home at its best will help.<br />

First impressions count from the<br />

moment potential buyers view a property<br />

from the street to the moment they walk<br />

through the front door.<br />

Weed the garden, cut back unruly<br />

shrubs and prune trees where needed. Kill<br />

off weeds in the lawn, sprinkle grass seed<br />

over bald patches and fertilise the lawn.<br />

Indoors, tidy up. Get rid of excess or<br />

bulky furniture, toys, books, hobby items<br />

or fitness equipment and if too many<br />

photos on the wall pack these away so the<br />

home looks roomy.<br />

If there is a gap or a room needs<br />

enhancing, look at what you have. A piece<br />

of furniture might be painted up or an<br />

old leather bound book popped on the<br />

coffee table. Shelves will also add depth<br />

to a narrow space while mirrors may give<br />

the illusion of a larger space. In entryways,<br />

add an easy chair, small table, bookcase or<br />

large vase.<br />

Awkward spaces such as coved ceilings<br />

in attics or upstairs rooms might be<br />

converted into storage shelving and<br />

the room given a purpose as an office,<br />

playroom or extra bedroom so viewers can<br />

see how the room might be used.<br />

Stow possessions neatly in containers,<br />

shelving or tidily in cupboards;<br />

highlighting the storage potential within<br />

the home, ensuring it is clean and tidy for<br />

viewing at any time.<br />

Move the pets outside as not all buyers<br />

will be pet lovers while some may suffer<br />

pet allergies putting them off a house if<br />

they see a pet inside.<br />

If parts of the house look tired, consider<br />

renovating by painting walls, replacing<br />

worn carpet, or modernising the kitchen,<br />

bathroom and toilet; rooms that should<br />

sparkle. Replace tired cabinetry, or the<br />

benches and cupboard/drawer fronts then<br />

update old toilets, showers or kitchen<br />

appliances. Modernising these rooms can<br />

lift the final selling price.<br />

Use consistent and light paint colours<br />

throughout for balance and seamlessness,<br />

making the house appear more spacious.<br />

An effect that is increased when walls and<br />

curtains share the same or a similar colour.<br />

Consider the personality and purpose<br />

of a room. Bright colours lift living areas<br />

especially if large and open. However,<br />

bedrooms are suited to calmer softer<br />

colours with just a touch of bold. Layer<br />

bedding or use throws for effect along with<br />

cushions or a stuffed toy in a children’s<br />

room.<br />

With curtaining, smaller patterns or<br />

plain fabrics are the rule for smaller rooms<br />

whereas larger patterns make spacious<br />

areas cosier. If blinds or drapes are past<br />

their best, replace these even if it is only<br />

with neutral cotton curtains. The effect<br />

will be worth it.<br />

Eco-friendly features will also add value<br />

for some buyers though not universally,<br />

however earthy natural colours and<br />

features are popular. Consider who your<br />

target buyers are likely to be and what will<br />

appeal to them.<br />

SPRING<br />

TRANSITION…<br />

Warmer and above our normal rainfall...<br />

Four Seasons Realty<br />

Rural | Lifestyle<br />

Your Country Partner<br />

Incredibly we’ve survived one of the wettest<br />

winters on record, especially the month of<br />

July and the recent rainfalls have set us up<br />

for a promising start to spring with good<br />

growth expected, Niwa has forecast higher<br />

than normal temps with above or normal<br />

rainfall here in Canterbury. So, whilst<br />

the outlook maybe promising, prudent<br />

planning and feed management may still<br />

be required as we know the impact the<br />

climate can have on our rural communities,<br />

particularly our farming families.<br />

The North Canterbury Rural Support Trust<br />

has again been confirmed as the preferred<br />

charity for the upcoming North Canterbury<br />

Wine Region Charity Golf Day to be held at<br />

Pegasus Golf Club late November, Harcourts<br />

Four Seasons is proud to be the major<br />

sponsor of this event for the second year.<br />

The North Canterbury Rural Support Trust<br />

is set up to assist rural individuals and their<br />

families to get back on their feet.<br />

The Trust is linked into local rural networks<br />

and can help people facing challenging<br />

circumstances, such as financial, personal,<br />

or climatic adverse events like drought,<br />

flood, or heavy snow. The North Canterbury<br />

Rural Support Trust is a charitable trust<br />

that encompasses Hurunui, Waimakariri,<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>, Christchurch including Banks<br />

Peninsula, and Kaikoura District Council.<br />

James Twiss, a director of Harcourts Four<br />

Seasons said “it’s wonderful we can again<br />

support this event, showcasing the North<br />

Canterbury Wine Region and the fantastic<br />

wines from our region, and the fact that<br />

the Rural Support Trust will also benefit<br />

provides great satisfaction. We recognise<br />

the vital work undertaken by the trust,<br />

hopefully this event can help with the<br />

awareness within our rural community that<br />

it’s ok to ask for help.”<br />

During the past year we have learnt a great<br />

deal and evolved our operations to meet the<br />

changing circumstances of doing business<br />

during the pandemic. We expect that many<br />

of these changes and learnings will continue<br />

to be a part of how we do business in the<br />

long term, especially where we’ve improved<br />

the outcomes for our buyers and vendors.<br />

The lifestyle property market in and around<br />

Christchurch City remains extremely<br />

strong, bucking the national real estate<br />

trend of recent price reductions. Lifestyle<br />

properties here in rural Canterbury that<br />

come to the market are still attracting great<br />

interest. When compared to city prices<br />

living in a Canterbury rural community<br />

still provides incredible value. There’s no<br />

better time to sell than Spring with the<br />

vigorous growth highlighting some breathtaking<br />

rural properties. Our agents get you<br />

more because we are the largest real estate<br />

network in Canterbury, our team provides<br />

greater exposure for your rural lifestyle<br />

property. Talk to one of our team of Rural<br />

Lifestyle Specialists, “Your Country Partner”<br />

wardrobes with both shelving and<br />
