SOLDIERS WITH assault rifles

were to have been part of a military

exercise in central Rolleston,

patrolling among shoppers and

residents.

But the army torpedoed the plan

after members of the public began

asking questions.

Up to 30 soldiers from Burnham

Military Camp were to have patrolled

the township’s shopping and

nearby residential areas with unloaded

rifles on Thursday last week.

In a classified advert in the Selwyn

Times notifying the public of the

exercise, the army said rifles would

be “pointed down at all times.”

A New Zealand Defence Force

spokesperson said the location of

the exercise had now been changed

to the Burnham area.

Asked by the Selwyn Times if

complaints had been received, the

spokesperson said: “We did receive

some phone calls from members of

the public, who had some questions

about the training that was to occur.”

The spokesperson said military

exercises were advertised to let the

public know they may see soldiers

training.

A $150 MILLION retirement

village with more than 200

homes is being planned for the

rural residential outskirts of

West Melton.

In spite of recent growth in

applied to

the district

council to

rezone 12.5ha

on West Coast

Highway 73,

bordering the

existing Preston

Downs subdivision.

Some of the land is class 2 and

3 agricultural soils. Legislation

protecting valuable soils was

introduced by Government last

week.

The district council will

consider whether to accept and

and 50 independent retirement

units for land on Kimberley Rd,

Darfield. The latter project was

signalled by the developers in a

which was adopted by the

district council and became

operative in February.

If accepted by the district

council for notification, PC77

Regional support for stadium growing

PROJECT managers for

Christchurch’s new $683 million

stadium remain certain it can be

delivered on budget.

They also say there is wider

regional support for the project

following calls for neighbouring

councils to help subsidise the

cost of the stadium.

The comments came

immediately after an official

launch for the Te Kaha multi-use

arena at the Christchurch Town

Hall last week.

Christchurch City Council

voted in July to proceed with a

fixed price build

contract following

several delays and a

$150 million budget

blowout.

Te Kaha Project

Delivery Ltd chair

Barry

Bragg

Barry Bragg said

the cost burden

is now with the

building contractors BESIX

Watpac.

“A significant portion of the

risk sits with them,” he said.

“They knew that coming into

the project; that’s why they were

selected.

“They have experience in

delivering these sorts of projects

around the world, particularly in

Australia.

“This is about a partnership

and we’ve worked pretty closely

HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think Selwyn ratepayers should contribute to the Canterbury

Multi-Use Arena? Email your views in 200 words or less to barry@starmedia.kiwi

with them and they’re confident

they can deliver.”

A TVNZ Q+A Kantar public

poll earlier this month revealed

only 47 per cent of people

surveyed believed the project

was good value for ratepayers.

Another 41 per cent of the

500 surveyed disagreed and the

remaining 12 per cent did not

know or refused to answer.

Bragg said the project’s

contingency should provide

ratepayers with some assurances.

“To be frank, we’re paying for

it – that’s why we ended up with

such a big project increase. In

this climate, we’ve paid to have

that certainty.”

Public consultation by

Christchurch City Council

showed 77 per cent wanted the

stadium project to proceed, in

spite of the average ratepayer

being set to fork out $144 extra

for two years from 2025 to cover

it.

Bragg said he believed Te

Kaha would be a regional asset

and confirmed there had been

meetings with neighbouring

councils.

When asked if he believed

those councils should be making

a financial contribution, he said

it was a decision for “the city

council to work through”.

Said a district council

spokesperson: “The council

has not had any meetings with

Te Kaha representatives where

there have been discussions or a

request for Selwyn to fund any

part of the project.”

However, the district council

had received frequent updates

on the project, including one at a

mayoral forum on July 8.

Bragg said “Te Kaha

representatives, Christchurch

City Council staff and elected

members met with (the) Selwyn

District Council chief executive

and mayor” at that event.

“We’ll support all those efforts.

If you take the results of the

public consultation, there is a fair

amount of support from those

regions as well,” he said.

“There’s no doubt about it,

the whole region, even the

whole of the South Island, will

benefit from this project, so we’ll

see. We see this as a Canterbury

regional project.”

Otautahi chief

executive Caroline

Harvie-Teare

ratepayers.

Harvie-

“It’s a scary, big Teare

number and it

wasn’t one we expected in the

early days. But this is going to

be a venue that our city can

be proud of. It’s going to do

more than what it is probably

promising at the minute,”

Harvie-Teare said.

She said central Christchurch

will be transformed when the

venue opens.

“This is going to be more than

just a venue, this is going to be a

precinct and there are going to

be other activations which will

change the face of that side of the

city.”

Te Kaha is expected to open in

2026.

THE FUTURE of Fosters

Homestead in Foster Park has

become more uncertain as a

potential tenant considers other

options.

The rapidly growing Rolleston

RSA was considering setting up

its headquarters in the 40-yearold

brick building, while renovating,

taking on maintenance, and

paying the building’s owner of

the district council a peppercorn

rental.

Secretary treasurer Richard

Hurt said while the building was

still the place of choice for some

committee members, the reality

was there was some high costs

involved in renovations.

The number one goal of the

organisation, which has about

220 members, was still to get

personalised headquarters for the

RSA. Negotiations were under

way with other organisations,

which could come on board

to be located in the future at a

joint site. At the same time, the

district council had put some

options additional to Fosters

Homestead on the table.

The district council delayed

discussing the future of Fosters

Homestead earlier this year, as

the former owners demanded it

not demolish the building, and

instead consult with the public

and consider community uses for

the building.

Pump track opened at Rolleston

SEVEN YEARS after opening,

West Rolleston Primary School

has finally managed to fulfil the

request of its foundation’s 77

children – a new pump track.

A pump track is a looped

sequence of rollers, berms and

swoopy-banked turns for bike

riders.

The whole school plus a large

number of parents, supporters

and sponsors turned out for the

track’s opening.

Principal Sylvia Fidow thanked

all those responsible for bringing

this dream to fruition, noting the

hard work of the school’s PTA,

the support of the community

at sausage sizzles and discos,

and the generous donations of a

number of “super sponsors”.

Fidow says the pump track is

all about the community’s kids

getting outside to enjoy the track.

She says the track is challenging

and will help the kids using it to

become resilient, to become risk

takers and staying really active,

“which is what we all want for

our kids.”

The track is open outside

of school hours for the whole

community, and she’s looking

forward to everyone using the

track respectfully.

Nuk’s ride to raise $20k for Renee

• By Tina Grumball

NUK KORAKO will set off on

his electric bike again in a bid

to raise the remaining $20,000

for his niece’s life-changing jaw

surgery.

A year after he completed his

first “Ride for Renee”, the former

Port Hills National List MP is

confident they will reach their

goal.

“Let’s get this sorted before

Christmas,” the Rāpaki resident

said.

“What a wonderful Christmas

present for her . . . the fact that

she actually has the money to

have the operation.”

His more than 580km ride

from Rapaki to Picton will take

about a week after he sets off on

Saturday.

Last year, he cycled 720km

from Banks Peninsula to Bluff,

raising about $35,000.

Further interest and fundraisers

meant they have reached

$70,000 of the $90,000 needed.

“It’s all about raising awareness

to Renee’s predicament around

her health issue. I’m really confident,

in doing this again, we’re

going to raise it,” he said.

Rapaki resident Renee Veal,

27, suffers from Hypermobile

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, which

causes her jaw to dislocate often.

Korako described it as “having

a bad toothache every day.”

LAST PUSH: Nuk Korako with Renee Veal. She has been

living with chronic pain for more than 10 years and is just

$20,000 away from being able to have a life-changing jaw

surgery that will vastly improve her quality of life.

Not only does he want to resurrect

interest for Renee’s plight,

but he said now it is more important

than ever as her health is

deteriorating.

“It’s getting more difficult now

because . . . her jaw is starting to

disintegrate at quite a rapid rate,”

he said.

“That’s why we’ve got to do

this . . . so that this young girl

can get the medical attention

that she needs.”

Korako said his children had

grown up with Renee who is his

niece.

Once they found out about Renee’s

medical condition, Korako

said they sprung into action.

“Everyone understands . . . we

want to do as much as we can for

our kids so that they do actually

DETERMINED: Nuk Korako on his previous fundraising ride

from Banks Peninsula to Bluff.

live a really quality life.”

Renee needs a total temporomandibular

joint reconstruction

and bilateral jaw joint replacements,

which is not covered

under the public health system.

The most expensive part of

the procedure was the titanium

jaw and joint replacements,

which are manufactured in the

United States.

Renee was in weekly consultation

with specialists, Korako

noted.

Facing the long journey

north, Korako said he was feeling

good and was excited to get

back on the bike.

He had been training around

the Bays for months for the “couple

of good climbs.”

His cousin would be his

“wingman” along the way.

“For me . . . once I finish this

one, I’ve been from Picton to

Bluff,” he said.

Renee was so thankful to

everyone who was a part of the

fundraising journey “whether it

be through donations or words

of support and encouragement.”

“I have such an amazing

support system,’’ she said.

ENVIRONMENT CANTERBURY

HEALTHY WATER

HEALTHY PEOPLE

Water is the single issue on which I stand.

Having attended several “meet the candidate” events which included

both District and Regional Council candidates, it is clear a majority of

those attending are concerned about the state of our freshwater.

Environment Canterbury (Ecan), the Canterbury Regional Council, has

accountabilities to maintain or enhance the quantity and quality of

Canterbury’s freshwater, aquatic ecosystems, and coastal waters.

District Councils are responsible for ensuring community water

supplies are safe. District Councils are firmly in the sights of the Three

Waters Bill and the chlorination mandate following the failure of

the Ministry of Health and Hastings District Council to protect 14,000

residents of Havelock North from death and illness due to waterborne

disease.

If Ecan were effective in protecting Canterbury’s freshwater at source,

chlorination and the Three Waters Bill would be less of an issue.

Unfortunately previous Governments have long failed to give

direction to Ecan. Worse from 2010 until the end of 2019 the

Government appointed its own commissioners to take control of

Ecan to facilitate massive irrigation development in response to

the 2008 recession. This irrigation development paid little heed to

the environmental consequences for our iconic braided rivers and

groundwater sourced lowland rivers and streams.

Rural residents limited to drinking from private wells are left to meet

the high cost of removing the pathogens and nitrate that is leaching

into our shallow aquifers due to diffuse pollution from intensive

farming systems, especially dairying.

If action is not taken soon to prevent contamination of the deeper

semi-confined aquifer layers, community water supplies will be

similarly affected. This has already

occurred with community water

supplies at the South Rangitata Huts

and with the Morven water supply.

For as long as Ecan has a majority

on the council whose wealth is linked

to irrigation and the right to diffusely

pollute our groundwater, “democratic

reality” will ensure the status quo

remains.

As a fifth generation New Zealander, angler, and rural veterinarian for

48 years, I have witnessed the massive degradation of our rivers first

hand. I am asking ratepayers from the towns within the Selwyn and

Ashburton ward to consider voting for the sake of future generations

rather than the short term economic benefits of Ecan’s unsustainable

water management plan.

Ecan has spent $NZ 60 million on its LWRP based on what farmers are

prepared to accommodate rather than environmentally sustainable

limits for nitrate pollution and environmentally sustainable residual

flows for our rivers and streams. Recent Government guidelines

will require an additional $30 million to update the plan to new

standards. Let us take the time and care to get it right this time rather

than set limits that accommodate short term unsustainable farming

practices.

Swimmable rivers and pure drinking water are priceless.

Solar power is only part

of the environmental

equation that adds

up for a Southbridge

vegetable and crop

grower, writes Tim

NEWS 17

Rewarding to invest in renewable energy

ROBIN OAKLEY’S call to put in

564 solar panels at his vegetable

and arable operation was done

with his head and heart.

The ground-mounted solar

line-up sits next to the packing

shed and powers 40 per cent of

the site’s energy needs each year.

Within seven years, the payback

from electricity generated

by the panels will have covered

the capital outlay of $400,000.

By then this power will come

virtually free — thanks to the

sun.

Oakley says the satisfaction of

unhooking from the grid — or

partly so — and doing good for

the environment accounts for

only some of the reasons why

they’ve invested in renewable

energy.

Solar power will have an

economic benefit for the business

with electricity bills only going

to go up, he says.

“We didn’t do it just for the

feel-good factor. We’ve done it

because there’s an economic advantage

to us as well as a positive

environmental impact. That’s the

motivation for doing that.”

Solar power from 390-watt

panels feeds into their large

washing, grading and packing

shed. They’re lined up facing the

best direction and angle to harness

the sun’s energy.

Oakley’s founder says they

would consider increasing the

solar farm’s size if they were paid

more money supplying power at

peak times back to the grid.

At the moment they only get

a token amount so the focus is

supplying power to their own

operation.

The vegetable growing, washing,

grading, packing, packaging

and storing business is yearround,

but peaks in the summer

when sunshine hours are at their

highest.

This coincides with a greater

power loading needed for refrigeration

so it’s a “good fit”, he

says.

Oakley is a fifth-generation

grower with the family legacy

traced back to his great great

grandfather John Oakley who

began farming in Halkett in the

1870s.

Nitrate levels constantly monitored

• From page 17

He’s always looking for more

innovative ways to improve the

health of the land, crops and

More lately, that includes reducing,

monitoring and managing

greenhouse gas emissions and

nitrogen leaching, and improving

soil quality.

Overseer software calculates

their nitrous oxide and carbon

dioxide emissions as well as nitrate

leaching after the numbers

are punched in.

“We are measuring what we

are doing as the soil is the biggest

part of our business

and we want to know the impact

of fertilisers. Now we are more

fine-tuning what we are putting

on. We’ve always worked at what

we consider best practice and

that’s moved on another notch

as far as doing more testing of

paddocks directly before the crop

goes in.

“We want to know exactly how

much nitrogen is in the soil and

we’re doing more monitoring

during the growing of the crop

to ensure that the amount we put

on is very closely aligned to its

needs.”

On top of the plant tissue

following crop. This could be a

green crop to soak up nutrients

that might be left in the soil.

For three years, nitrate levels

have been measured in one

of their paddocks as part the

Sustainable Vegetables System

programme. The national

research project is analysing

nitrate uptake and leaching, the

efficiency of data and looking

at the accuracy of Overseer

predictions for potato crops.

At Oakley’s, nitrate levels are

measured throughout the soil

profile to check their movement.

Gratifying for them, the results

show that their nitrate leaching is

very low.

Oakley says they probably run

on the low side for nitrogen.

“The good thing is we are

quantifying what we are doing

and we aren’t ‘guesstimating’. We

think we’ve been operating our

farming systems pretty right just

by observations about whether

more or less nitrogen needs to

go on. Farmers have been doing

that for years with season crops,

but now we’ve got more tools to

get physical measurements and

numbers.”

Growers know by experience

what grows best after another

crop to make the most of existing

nitrogen levels in soils.

Pumpkins are a good crop to

follow broccoli or nitrogen-fixing

peas as there will still be nutrients

in the ground, but the soils

will be “hungry” if they follow

grass or wheat and more fertiliser

is needed.

“The technology has validated

what we were doing was pretty

much on the button,” he said.

“So it’s not like we’ve suddenly

found we’re putting too much

of this or not enough of that

is the main one that everyone’s

concerned about.

‘All this environmental stuff is just an

• From page 18

“For any vegetable crop you

are growing if you have too much

nitrogen you will get just as bad

an outcome as not enough. We’ve

always worked a fine line because

if you put too much nitrogen

on potatoes they won’t set the

numbers, you’ll get poorer quality

skins and you will get more

disease problems. So as a potato

grower you never wanted to put

too much nitrogen on.”

The same applies to pumpkins

— too much nitrogen and they

won’t store well and will go

rotten. Under-playing nitrogen

means the canopy will be down

and the yield potential won’t be

reached.

Oakley says they used to err

on the side of caution with their

nitrogen needs, pre-technology,

because they’d rather have

slightly lower yields and higher

quality than risk a crop’s overall

quality.

He says they’ve found in some

cases that they can put more

nitrogen on because the tools

tell them the starting level in a

paddock is lower than what they

thought.

“We’ve got a measurement on it

now and we know we can confidently

put X amount on because

that’s what the crop needs and

that’s what the soil’s got. Whereas

before we might have tended to

be conservative because we didn’t

want to blow it out the other side

and risk ruining the crop.”

It’s hard enough to run a business

employing at the peak of the

season 45 staff, let alone devote so

much extra energy and revenue

into the environmental space.

Oakley says there’s good reasons

for going the extra mile and

being quick to pick up technology

and innovations to improve their

environmental sustainability.

They’re not the only growers

doing this, he says.

“We’ve got branded product

in the marketplace and we’ve got

people buying product and we

want to be able to communicate

to these people what we are doing,

because I think in the rural

area at the moment there’s a lot

of bad PR about things that are

happening with agriculture in

general. A lot of it is misinformation

and some of it’s justified,

but we want to make sure there’s

some good stories being shared

to the general public based on

facts rather than people drawing

their own conclusions based

on hearsay. There’s also the opportunity

to improve our overall

performance financially as well

as environmentally. Often the

two go hand in hand.”

He says his family asks environmental

questions about products

they buy so it is only fair that

consumers do the same.

The constant search to improve,

especially their soils, isn’t

done to satisfy “grumpy environmentalists”

but to produce a

better crop and this feeds into the

bottom line, he says.

Upgrading packaging so it is

kinder to the environment might

cost more, but it could encourage

people to buy their product and

increase sales.

Similarly, growing a crop by

burning less diesel saves money.

Changing environmental practices

on fertilising some crops

will come at a cost, but there will

also be a saving with fertiliser

prices skyrocketing at the moment.

“There’s an economic reason to

do it and there’s an environmental

reason to do it and you have

to weigh up both of those things.

So far, in most of the areas we are

targeting there’s a win-win going

on. That’s no different from the

whole world.

“The world has to make those

decision because it can’t make a

gain environmentally but at an

economic cost that will have everyone

out of their houses living

under bridges.”

Potatoes are a constant

throughout the family growing

legacy, but he was the first to

grow vegetables commercially.

“I started growing vegetables

when I was still at school on the

family farm. I left school at 15

and I’ve been involved since that.

“Whilst our family has

been growing for a long time

I essentially started my own

business.”

At the time his grandfather,

father, brother and himself were

all growers. They each did their

“own thing” running their own

businesses, but worked collectively

and co-operatively with

sharing machinery and labour.

As he got more involved in

vegetable growing he became less

involved in other components of

the farm.

“I just liked growing vegetables.

As a kid we all had school

vegetable gardens and I really

enjoyed that and my vegetable

garden got too big for what we

needed for our family of seven

and I started selling at the gate

and to neighbours and then

started taking stuff to the local

market and it just went from

“To build a business out of

growing vegetables has been

great. There’s nothing else I’d

rather be doing.”

From initially supplying

vegetables seasonally, this has

expanded to a year-round operation.

As the business matured, he

began dealing directly with

customers and creating their own

brands and marketing.

The vegetable selection has

chopped and changed over the

years and in the past he’s grown

cabbage, cauliflowers, parsnips

and sweetcorn, among other

varieties.

Today that’s evolved to potatoes,

broccoli, beetroot and

pumpkins.

Arable crops including turf

grass seed, feed wheat, processing

peas and maize for silage are also

part of the rotation.

Deep-rooted wheat and maize

get to fertiliser further below the

surface and after harvesting the

residue is chopped up to provide

organic matter for the soil.

Broccoli, beetroot and

pumpkins are sold as a raw

product without being processed,

other than being graded, washed,

packaged and delivered to

customers.

More investment has gone into

the potatoes with the Oakleys

Potatoes. Their pack-house also

supplies bagged potatoes for

Foodstuffs’ Pams brand and to

other customer specifications.

Oakley credits his wife Shirleen

for being a major ingredient in

Oakley’s success. Without her

support he doubts they would’ve

been able to grow the business to

where it is today.

One of his daughters looks

after their website, social media

and some marketing activities

part time while completing a

master’s degree.

She shares his passion for food

and there’s potential that she

might become more involved in

the business in the future, if this

is her wish.

Oakley’s commitment to

looking after the soil, land and

airspace earned him a HortNZ

Environmental Award.

He says they’re proud to be

recognised environmentally and

want the operation to hold the

course that’s been set.

Growers are caretakers of the

land and their whole life is looking

after the soil and the health of

the plants, he said.

“All this environmental stuff is

just an extension of what we are

doing. It’s nothing new except

now we’ve got more tools and

technology to measure what’s

going on.

“And it just so happens at the

same time people are a bit more

conscious about environmental

impacts. Go back 20 years ago

and nobody gave much thought

about it. It didn’t even matter, but

it mattered for us and we were

still conscious we were getting

the best outcomes to grow good

healthy produce and look after

the soil in such a way that we

would get a good result out of the

next crop.

“These are things all growers

and farmers have been doing, but

now the rest of the world is really

conscious about what we’re doing

now because of the impact we’re

having. Well that’s great.”

He says it has been immensely

satisfying seeing a business progress

from a schoolboy start to

sustainably growing vegetables in

healthy soils.

“It’s the most rewarding thing

you can be involved in for me to

take something from a seed and

grow it to a finished product.

We are feeding hundreds of

thousands of people every week

so it’s pretty cool.”

Aquatic Centre's partial closure

for maintenance

Selwyn Aquatic Centre will be partially closed during the week of

10-16 October for necessary maintenance work.

The new extension to the Aquatic Centre will remain open

throughout, with lanes available for general use and a programme

of events for users.

While the work is underway, the main entrance will be closed and a

temporary entrance will be open next to the new extension. Some

car parks next to the building will also not be available.

Activities galore these

school holidays

Young people in Selwyn will be spoilt for choice these school holidays, with fun activities and

events planned from 1-15 October.

Make your own slime, a teen pool party, inflatable world, and a range of sports will be

available to keep kids, teenagers and families entertained all holidays.

Council Group Manager Community Services and Facilities Denise Kidd says it’s always a

delight to deliver activities that put a smile on so many faces.

“Our holiday events are designed to be creative and diverse, so there’s something for

everyone. We’re really pleased to be offering a range of activities these holidays that are sure

to be a hit with young people throughout the district.”

Activities include a wind chime workshop, indoor archery and holiday favourite, Fun

Science with Amadeo. His magic science show will feature extreme illusions and big booms

guaranteed to excite.

These events and more can be found on the Council website at selwyn.govt.nz/events.

Alternatively, pick up a term four ‘What’s on in Selwyn’ brochure from Selwyn libraries and

Council facilities.

The Selwyn Sports Centre will also be running daily sport activities from Monday to Friday

both weeks of the holidays, including roller skating, taekwondo, futsal, tennis and ultimate

frisbee. The programme is open to kids aged seven to 12, costing $40 to $50 a day. Places

are limited and registrations are essential. To book in, visit selwynsportscentre.co.nz.

Maintenance will include work on pipes, pumps, some flooring and

the mountings for the roof-mounted air exchange units.

The necessary maintenance has been planned for as short a time

as possible, at a low-use period and with pools still available, to

minimise the disruption for users, Aquatic Centre Operations

Manager Nick McConaghty says.

“Having the extension means we can still have a pool available for

all users while we carry out this necessary maintenance. We have

a good programme of events and classes still happening, including

school holiday events for kids. The Selwyn Sports Centre is also

running its regular school holiday programme.”

Next steps for new housing intensification rules

in Selwyn

Public consultation on new housing intensification rules, which will allow for more housing and

at greater heights in relevant residential areas in Rolleston, Lincoln and Prebbleton, closed last

Friday. We have provisionally received 114 submissions on the variation to the Proposed District

Plan and 16 submissions on the variations to eight private plan changes to the Operative

District Plan.

The Council is now working through the submissions to summarise the submission points,

so we can notify our summary of submissions for further public consultation. This will not

be a call for new submission points, but an opportunity to support, oppose or comment on

someone else’s submission already made. We will let the public know who can make a further

submission and how to do this when we reach this stage.

We expect to hold public hearings in May 2023. At these hearings independent commissioners

will consider all submissions and officer reports recommendations.

The Council must notify a decision on the variations by 20 August 2023. It’s important to note

that all variations will proceed through a new streamlined planning process. This means there

is no right of appeal to the Environment Court.

Selwyn businesses hopeful of

positive end to the year

New survey results show Selwyn businesses are expecting to

increase jobs, investment and profitability, after a tough first six

months to the year.

The results come from the Selwyn Business Survey, a six-monthly

Council-organised initiative to take the temperature of

district businesses.

Results from the most recent August survey show local businesses

are hopeful of profits recovering over the next six months.

Eighteen per cent of businesses were expecting their profits to

increase over the next six months, while 11 per cent reported an

intention to hire more staff.

The survey also revealed Selwyn businesses are feeling more

confident than the national average to increase investment over the

next six months, with 18 per cent of businesses planning to invest

more, compared with -2.6 per cent of businesses nationally.

The impacts of the rising costs nationally and internationally were

evident, with more than four-in-five businesses reporting increased

costs. Forty-four per cent of businesses said they had increased

their prices in the past six months, in line with these rises, and

similar numbers expect to increase prices again in the

coming months.

Council Group Manager Community Services and Facilities Denise

Kidd says it was good to see the positive outlook despite the

economic challenges.

“It’s particularly pleasing to see businesses reporting that they’re

planning to hire and invest over the next six months. It shows the

underlying strength of the Selwyn economy that even in tougher

times our businesses are generally holding up well.”

Exciting upgrades completed at Darfield Library

Artistic scenes, impressive heritage displays and interactive experiences have all come together at

Darfield Library. The changes were part of extensive renovations to the facility, which the Council

finished last month.

A large feature wall showcasing historic images of the district’s working dogs welcomes visitors

into the upgraded facility, while a new scenic wall panel has been installed throughout the Tamariki

area. The panel is an illustrated reimagining of the Malvern landscape heading west to Arthur’s

Pass, with train, animal and hot air balloon

magnets available for kids to stick along

the wall.

A permanent seed library made of

decorative rural letter boxes provides

visitors with an enticing choice of plants to

share and grow, and a large wall map of the

alpine landscape has also been installed.

Group Manager Community Services

and Facilities Denise Kidd says Council

is proud to have refreshed the library and

service centre with modern updates that

provide an appropriate celebration of

Malvern, and gateway in to the area.

“Contemporary libraries provide a space for communities to connect and enjoy a range of activities,

which is quite different to the traditional libraries of old. I’m sure many people will enjoy the new

updates at Darfield. Our teams have taken great pride in the project.”

The Council was pleased to work with experienced exhibition designers, Workshop E to help create

the upgraded library spaces. The company has worked on several celebrated museum and library

projects throughout the country, including Rolleston’s Te Ara Ātea.

ELLESMERE Sustainable

Agriculture launched its trap

library with a workshop last

week to help farmers make a

positive contribution to the

national Pest Free 2050 goal.

Several ESAI members have

seen an increase in pest species

around their farms and indicated

that they would like to have

access to traps to help reduce

pest species numbers, especially

around new restoration planting

along riparian margins.

John Williamson from Pest

Free Banks Peninsula had

also approached ESAI to work

together to create a pest-free

buffer around the Taumutu area

to minimise pests moving along

Kaitoreti Spit to reinfest Banks

Peninsula.

ESAI committee member

Nigel Greenwood says that the

farmers group is keen to work

with other groups and organisations

to reduce pest numbers in

the Ellesmere area.

“This project will raise awareness

of pest species and their impact

on our area’s flora and fauna

and highlight what individuals

can do, as well as providing

resources that enable landowners

to contribute to pest control

efforts,” Greenwood said.

It is hoped that by encouraging

ESAI members to set traps

along the waterways feeding Te

Waihora, the numbers of pests

entering DOC areas will be reduced,

providing huge benefits to

birds and other wildlife around

the lake.

“Our goal is to protect native

species that live in the Ellesmere

area, protect food and fibre production,

minimise the spread of

pest borne diseases and enhance

native biodiversity along our

waterways, wetland areas and

catchments,” says Greenwood,

who emphasises that the PFBP

aims align perfectly with the

ESAI vision and the goals of the

trap library project.

The project has also been an

opportunity to strengthen ESAI’s

relationship with Ellesmere College

by getting Gateway students

involved in the project.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Trap library launched to help reduce pests

Students Caleb Macdonald,

Darcy Tuffnell, Ben Taylor and

Jesse Stephens have been busy

building the wooden tunnels

required for some of the traps,

gaining valuable woodworking

and building skills, which will

help them find future employment.

The four young men were keen

to help out with the trap project

and were happy to dedicate time

to build trap tunnels and support

the community project.

The ESAI trap library will start

with 60 DOC250 traps, which

are a kill trap suitable for killing

rats, hedgehogs, and mustelids.

They will be fitted with a central

baffle to reduce the incidence of

by-catch like domestic cats and

birds. These are a durable trap,

have a long service life, and are

easy to set and maintain.

The library will also include 20

Trapinator traps which are kill

traps for possums and six AT220

traps, which are an auto-reset

kill trap for rats and for possums.

This trap provides up to 100

cycles and 12 months between

services (bait refill and battery

replacement), daylight deactivation

mode, data logging, and

communication to computer.

This is an expensive but highly

effective trap.

At the workshop John Williamson

and Tim Sjoberg from

PFBP shared the goals of their

project and how the ESAI members

could contribute.

They provided background

about each pest species,

BUFFER: ESAI

right use of the

traps.

explained correct placement

of traps, correct bait to use for

each pest and they demonstrated

how to set and unset the traps

safely.

ESAI members, and others

in the Ellesmere community

attended the workshop to learn

and took up the opportunity to

borrow traps for their properties.

The trap library co-ordinator

Jo Fearn said that around 20

traps were issued on the day.

“We encourage other ESAI

members to get in touch and

take advantage of this awesome

opportunity,” said Fearn.

“If you are not already an ESAI

member, we can sign you up and

get you started and contribute

to reducing pest numbers in the

Ellesmere area.”

THE DVS Pegasus Open

72-hole strokeplay tournament

will return next month after a

two-year hiatus because of

Covid.

The tournament from October

13-16 is the only Charles Tour

event in the South Island.

“The return of the event to the

Canterbury golfing calendar following

two years of Covid-related

cancellations and postponements

is a huge boost to golf in the region,”

said event promoter Mike

Godinet.

The Charles Tour of New Zealand,

conceived by Greg Turner,

is named in honour of Sir Bob

Charles, and is made up of eight

events in New Zealand is designed

to provide opportunities

for young talented local amateur

golfers to play alongside the

country’s elite amateurs as well as

New Zealand based professional

golfers who compete for a total

tour prize pool of more than

$850,000.

The DVS Pegasus Open is the

licencing agreement with New

Francis, who has a long association

with the Crusaders, is

its current deputy chair and chief

executive and majority shareholder

of the New Zealand Coal

& Carbon group.

The group is a big player in the

coal mining and carbon industry.

The Crusaders would not

reveal details of what the private

equity partnership was worth.

Crusaders chairman Grant

Jarrold said the partnership

would give it room to pursue

some ambitions with shareholders,

including growing the brand

worldwide where it has traditionally

strong fan bases.

“It also gives us a chance to

advance plans to participate in a

possible world club championship,”

said Jarrold.

The Hurricanes, Chiefs,

Highlanders and Blues have all

had private investors as part of

their business model, while the

Crusaders have been run by six

provincial unions, led by Canterbury

and Tasman.

Jarrold said when the club’s

perpetual licence to operate was

granted in 2021, its partnership

relationships needed to evolve to

that of key investors.

“PwC led a process on behalf

of the Crusaders to find new

equity investors in our business

and that process uncovered some

exceptional local people, any of

whom would have made worthy

Crusaders partners,” he said.

“We were fortunate to be approached

by individuals who

impressed us with their passion

for our region, their innovation

within their own ventures, and

the networks and connections

they had.

“The Crusaders, the provincial

unions and Brent Francis all

agreed on this approach and new

us.

Hidden Talent on show

RACING 29

• By Jonny Turner

HIDDEN TALENT has Oaks

assignments on her radar after

her stunning win in the Group

3 Canterbury Spa and Pool Sires

Stakes Classique on Thursday

night

The Nathan Williamson

trained filly produced an

incredible victory when

storming down the outside of the

Addington track from last to win

the feature event. She remains

unbeaten after three career

starts.

The three-year-old had a

massive task in front of her at the

400m considering there hadn’t

been a lot of speed on during the

1980m Sires Stakes Classique

and she had the whole field to get

past.

Nathan Williamson admitted

he had his concerns during

the running before his filly

surprised him in the best

possible style.

“It was playing into the leaders’

hands a wee bit but I couldn’t

really do much else.”

“But she has got a good turn

of foot and she showed that

tonight.”

“It took me by surprise a little

bit, I wasn’t hugely confident

with it being her first trip away,

but she got the job done which

was great.”

Williamson and Hidden Talent

on Thursday night.

will now head back to Southland

with another feature event in

their sights.

“We will get home and reboot

and then have a crack at the

Southland Trotting Oaks.”

“Possibly after that, I might

give her a wee freshen up and

regroup and then set her for

the New Zealand Trotting

Oaks.”

“It is about six or seven weeks

later, at the end of November, so

that is the bit of a plan we have

got.”

Hidden Talent headed a

Williamson trifecta in the Sires

Stakes Classique with the Phil

Williamson trained Majestic

Love second and the Matthew

Williamson owned and driven

Minnie McGoogan third.

Both Majestic Love and

Hidden Talent are raced by the

Griffins Syndicate.

in Thursday night’s feature pace,

but not in the order punters

expected.

After not getting the racing

room he needed in his first up

third, All Stars pacer Franco

Mac made full use of the passing

lane to score a big win for Olivia

Serious leg injury

rules Laver

out of NZ Cup

ONE OF THE country’s most

popular racehorses Laver is out

of the New Zealand Cup.

“He’s damaged his off-hind

leg – it’s not a good one,” says cotrainer

Geoff Dunn.

The tough Art Major five-yearold

was found to have a tear in

his hind suspensory.

“It’s the worst place, it’s a real

shame that’s for sure.”

A winner of nine races from

53 starts, Laver last raced in the

New Brighton Cup a fortnight

ago, finishing seventh.

Part of Laver’s popularity was

his toughness in races – regularly

he’d be put into races, staying

parked and ensuring races were

run at a solid tempo.

“He’s always made it a bit interesting

didn’t he?” said Dunn.

Before his withdrawal from

Fun for the family

this school holidays!

CentreStage Rolleston is gearing up for

another fantastic show in their 2022

season, following the success of Bonnie and

Clyde earlier this year.

Based on the hit 2006 Disney film, High

School Musical Jr follows the story of Troy

Bolton and Gabriella Montez who meet

while singing karaoke on a winter ski trip.

They decide they don’t want to stick to

the status quo of their cliques at East High

and, on a whim, audition for their school’s

spring musical, much to their classmate’s

disgust.

This is CentreStage Rolleston’s third

Youth Theatre production since the

drama group’s establishment in 2018,

with a lot of the cast and crew making

reappearances from previous shows.

Choreographer Ella Curtis-Smith, who is

making her CentreStage debut, said that

the community feel of the drama group

is what enticed her to apply as part of the

creative team and it has been a highlight

of her choreography career. She said that

everyone, from the committee to the

cast and their families, have been very

welcoming to her and the cast have been

working meticulously to ensure that they

give audiences the best performance ever.

The show is directed by Shannon Nuttall,

with musical direction by Shannon-Aimee

Bradley and choreography by Ella Curtis-

Smith.

High School Musical Jr boasts a cast of

27 talented young people who have been

hard at work since July with rehearsals, and

they are beyond excited for you to come

and watch the show, which runs its limited

season October 7th – October 9th 2022.

ASPARAGUS always signals that

spring is here.

The juicy sweet spears are bliss

covered with butter or a light

white wine sauce.

If you are going to grow your

own asparagus you need to know

it’s a long term crop.

In the first two years you won’t

get many spears. It’s not until

year three that you will get a

bountiful crop.

Purple and green varieties are

available. Mary Washington and

Franklin are popular green types

and Sweet Purple is a purple

variety. Both have a similar taste.

When, where and how

to plant

Choose a sunny spot with a

light, free-draining moisture

retentive soil. Raised beds will

improve drainage.

Add well-rotted compost and/

or manure and dig into the soil.

Plant in rows 15 to 20cm apart,

in raised beds and containers

you can plant in blocks.

Plant one or two-year-old

crowns in early spring.

Soak the crowns in warm

water for about an hour before

planting.

Dig a trench about 30cm long

by 30cm deep with a raised ridge

in the centre.

Place the new plants on the

ridge, spreading the roots evenly

down the ridge.

Cover the crowns with 5cm of

soil and keep covering with soil

until the trench is overflowing

with soil.

Growing guide

Keep soil moist and sprinkle

complete plant food over the bed

once during late spring.

Don’t cut any spears in the first

year, and when growth begins to

yellow off in autumn, cut plants

to the ground and mulch the bed

with rotted manure.

Repeat this process every year.

Harvest

Harvesting begins as soon as

How to use

GARDENING

EDIBLE GARDENS have never

been more popular and one of the

easiest of fruits to cultivate is the

strawberry.

Because of their compact habit,

strawberries can be grown in

hanging baskets, containers or the

aptly-named strawberry pots, as

well as the usual raised-up garden

beds.

Strawberries have a long history.

They are traditionally thought

of as having European origins

but wild species are also found in

North and South America.

Modern day strawberries tend

to have very mixed heritage,

which has made them stronger

than their ancestors.

They’re also sweeter, less woody,

more prolific and less affected by

day length. They can begin cropping

in a matter of weeks and will

go on producing for much of the

year, especially in warmer areas.

•Strawberries in the garden

– Choose a sunny position

that hasn’t grown strawberries

for a number of years and dig

in some organic compost. Plant

strawberry runners or seedlings

into raised-up mounds, and apply

a layer of mulch.

Debate rages as the origin of the

strawberry’s name. Some say that

it’s a corruption of ‘strew berry’,

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Strawberries are easy to

cultivate in edible garden

so-called because the berries are

strewn along the stems.

Others insist that the name

refers to the straw that is often

used as a mulch around the

plants, which is a useful reminder

of how important it is to mulch

the plants, both to retain moisture

and to keep the fruit cleanly

above the soil.

Pea straw or lucerne hay make a

good a mulch.

Remove runners, unless you

want to use them to propagate

some new plants (which should

be done every three years or so).

•Strawberries in pots

– Start by choosing a suitable

container. Fill with a top quality

potting mix and plant the strawberries.

Water in well.

Feed occasionally with plant

food and watch out for snails and

slugs.

•Strawberries in hanging

baskets – This is a fun way to

grow strawberries, but the main

challenge with growing any plant

in a hanging basket is that it’s

much more vulnerable to drying

out.

Line moss baskets with plastic

sheet and poke in a few holes for

drainage.

Fill with a hanging basket

mix which contains added soil

wetters and water-storing crystals.

Ripe berries look particularly

decorative dangling from a

basket.

Keep magnolias cool

THE ONSET of spring is the time

when the deciduous magnolias

are at their best.

September seems to force these

gorgeous flowers to open in a

rush.

The breathtaking sight of the

large, tulip-like blooms perching

on bare branches can send

passers-by rushing to the nursery

to buy something similar. There

are dozens of magnolia varieties,

and making a choice can be a

formidable task.

The names are confusing so it’s

usually easiest to forget nomenclature

and just go for the flower

you like most (remembering,

of course, to check the ultimate

height on the label).

Most grow into small trees but,

if space is tight, look for one of

the shrub-sized star magnolias.

Because magnolias come from

cool climates with rich, moistureholding

soil, keeping them happy

through hot New Zealand summers

can be a challenge.

It’s important to take the opportunity

to improve the soil as

much as possible before planting.

Choose a spot that gets at least

half a day’s sun and is protected

from strong winds.

Start by clearing grass or

ground-covering plants from an

area about a metre across, then

dig plenty of manure or good

compost and some longlasting

fertiliser into the soil.

Because magnolias hate being

dry, it can also be helpful to add

some water-storing crystals into

the planting area.

Create a planting hole that’s

about twice the size of the pot

and approximately the same

depth. Take the plant out of the

pot with care (magnolias hate

root disturbance) and sit it into

the planting hole.

Backfill, then water well to

settle everything into place.

Lastly, spread a layer of organic

mulch. This will keep the soil

moist and stop competitive grass

from growing back over the root

area.

Once the magnolia is well

established you can plant some

bulbs around the base to add

extra interest in late winter and

spring.

Are you ready to grow?

to get their hands dirty.

Safety in the Garden

Keeping yourself safe in the garden is important, especially at this time

of the year. Legionnaire’s Disease is one of the main risks in the garden,

so protecting yourself is key. Below are some precautions you can take to

reduce the risk of contracting Legionnaires:

• Open bags with a sharp knife – away from the face - in open spaces, not

in enclosed areas like sheds or greenhouses

• Remember to use gloves and masks when handling the mix

• Dampen any dry mix – taking care not to inhale dry, dusty mix

• Store bags out of direct sunlight

• Always wash your hands after gardening, and before eating or drinking

If you develop any flu-like

symptoms after working

in the garden head to your

doctor immediately. Make

sure you let them know

you have been gardening

and need to get tested for

Legionnaires.

So, you’re thinking about adding a new

puppy to your family. Below are some

helpful tips to not only keep you sane, but

also your puppy and household safe too.

First up, and this may sound a bit strange,

but have a look around your home and

garden as if you were puppy-sized and

extremely inquisitive to prevent any

potentially dangerous situations.

1. Puppy proof your home This is

very much like baby proofing except the

canine version is more curious, active and

can be destructive, wanting to explore and

play with everything in sight.

2. Create a positive environment

This is so more time is spent loving and

praising your puppy rather than telling it

off.

3. Buy some toys A good selection

of chew toys is essential as they help with

teething, keep your puppy busy and help

promote chewing on the right things rather

than your belongings.

4. Protect your home and

possessions Puppies have very sharp

teeth and paws and the most simple thing

like library books on a coffee table can be

fair game so put everything you think is

precious or hazardous to your new friend

out of reach and keep doors closed to parts

of the house that you don’t want destroyed.

Invest in some baby gates to restrict access

to different areas of your home.

5. Consider crate training This is

a confined space to keep them safe and

out of trouble, particularly at night or if

you must go out for an hour or so. There is

plenty of information about how to do this

on the internet or check with your vet.

6. Check your plants Many indoor

and outdoor plants are toxic - karaka

tree berries can be fatal. Others include

common plants like lilies, ivy, daffodils

(especially the bulbs), some species of ivy

and aloe vera. Again, check online, with the

SPCA or your vet for more information.

7. Restrict treats It can be tempting

to give your puppy treats but there are

lots of human foods that are potentially

hazardous for dogs. Chocolate and caffeine

well-known but onions, chives, grapes and

raisins, along with mouldy food, are also

toxic.

With a bit of preparation, your puppy and

your family will enjoy a happy life together

and your home, possessions, garden and

new friend will all remain intact.

Nothing like the taste of

home-grown tomatoes

TOMATO – THIS bright

red delight is certainly a

staple.

From adding a healthy,

fresh touch to a lunchtime

sandwich or providing the

base for a whole raft of

dinnertime delicacies, it’s

a must-have in any good

home garden.

And while it’s quick and

easy to grab a few toms

from your local store or

simply open a can, there’s

nothing quite like the taste

of a home-grown one.

As we spring into the

warmer months, now is a

good time to get out into

your vege patch and put the

groundwork in place for a

healthy summer crop.

To get started, grab some

seedlings. Don’t be too

conservative when it comes

to plant numbers – tomatoes

are so versatile you can

never have too many.

When thinking about

the best place to plant your

seedlings, look for somewhere

that’s sunny, but sheltered

from strong winds.

If you’ve grown tomatoes

before, plant them somewhere

different this time.

You’ll reduce the chances of

your tomatoes developing

nasty diseases like blight.

If garden space is limited,

why not give pots a go? The

bright red fruit will add a

welcome splash of colour

to your porch or deck.

You can even plant cherry

tomatoes in the middle of

hanging baskets, with a

range of herbs around the

outside, as long as you position

them in a warm, sunny

spot.

If it’s been a wet winter

where you are, add a bit of

lime to your earth. That’s

because tomatoes thrive in

soil with a moderate pH

and large amounts of rain

tend to lower your soil’s

acidity level. Don’t forget to

BUMPER CROP: Tomatoes are easy to grow in

the garden or, like these cherry tomatoes, in a

hanging basket.

dig in compost to improve

soil conditions.

Once your prep work is

complete, dig a hole, approximately

3cm deep and

space your tomato seedlings

about one foot apart.

Fill in the holes with soil.

Once planted, spray

your tomatoes with liquid

copper to prevent fungal

diseases. And add a general

fertiliser, like nitrophoska

blue, to the soil surrounding

the tomatoes to encourage

large, juicy fruit.

When it comes to watering,

avoid overhead hosing

as it can leave your plants

more susceptible to diseases

like downy mildew, rust,

and blight. A better way to

keep your plants moist is

to layer newspaper around

them, and then cover the

newspaper with peastraw.

This creates mulch that will

prevent your plants drying

out during the day and in

between watering sessions.

Picking off the laterals

as they develop. If you

imagine a tomato plant has

a main trunk that grows

straight up with branches

growing off this trunk at

roughly 90deg, the laterals

are the smaller stems that

develop at approximately

45deg in between the main

trunk and branch.

Often laterals won’t produce

fruit but can produce

a lot of leaves. If you pick

them off it allows the plant

to put all its energy into

growing fruit, rather than

a whole lot of leaves you

don’t need. Apply the same

formula for working out the

laterals on the main trunk

to working out which are

the laterals on each subsequent

branch.

And if spring hasn’t quite

sprung in your neck of the

woods, try cutting the base

off two-litre plastic milk

bottles (recycle the base)

and place the remaining

parts of the bottles over

the seedlings. These mini

greenhouses will protect

your plants from frosts and

cold winds.

Once your tomato

seedlings grow a bit taller

they’ll need staking to help

stabilise and protect them

from strong winds. You can

do this any way you like but

I prefer the teepee method.

Take three stakes and place

them in the ground with

the tomato plant in the

middle, then tie the stakes

together at the top with

rope or string. And why not

get the kids to decorate the

stakes while you’re at it?

Risingholme Community Centre

sticking to their roots with new

brand “Risingholme Learning”

We are pleased to announce that Risingholme

Community Centre is now trading as

Risingholme Learning. The rebrand includes a

rollout of a new logo and a new website.

Our new brand pays homage to the last 75+

years, the present and is a `nod to the future’.

The rebrand highlights Risingholme’s focus on

the importance of lifelong learning.

For over 75 years Risingholme Learning has

operated under the same roof, with the same

goals and values: to promote community spirit

through face-to-face adult education.

Although the centre has officially rebranded

from `Risingholme Community Centre’

to ‘Risingholme Learning’ Director Lynda

Megson, wants to ensure the message is still the

same.

“We’ve been running for over 75 years and

plan to run for another 75+ years” Megson says.

“We are continuing to provide the

community opportunities to gain new skills,

knowledge and experiences by providing a wide

range of exciting courses at different locations

across the city. Every term, we have over 800

enrolments, so the demand for learning new

things is a priority for many” Megson says.

“The Risingholme homestead and park in

Opawa is still our base and so acknowledges

our history. We have kept our green colour

and the ‘R’ of our name to reflect the park and

previous branding and are using one of our

park’s trees to better reflect our mission. Our

own ‘tree of life’ represents the relationships

we nurture with our communities: growth,

learning, connections, enjoyment, and strength,

all held within the maturity of our 75+ years

of operation. We believe our rebrand is a fresh

way of communicating this” Megson says.

With term 4 fast approaching, it’s the perfect

time to check out our new website and see the

MY PRIDE AND JOY

Vintage car

rally to

Highland

Swap Meet at

Games

McLeans Island

Touted as one of the largest garage

sales in New Zealand, The Swap

Meet and Display is a great day out

with family and friends. The event

originally started as a venue for

swapping car parts and while this is

still its focus, other household items

can be found for sale on the day.

This year’s event is on October 7-9

at Cutler Park, McLeans Island and

is open to the public on Friday and

Saturday from 9am to 4.30pm, and

Sunday from 9am to 2pm. Public

entry to the Swap Meet is $5 per day,

or $10 for a 3-day pass. Children

accompanied by an adult are free.

If you’ve been thinking your vintage or veteran car needs a run after

being in storage over winter, then the Hororata Highland Games Veteran

and Vintage Car Run could be just the thing to blow the cobwebs away.

Suitable for vintage vehicles up to 1932, rally drivers and passengers are

encouraged to take part and dress up for the day in Scottish costume as

well as decorating their cars.

Meet at the Cenotaph, 1km north of Hororata on the Coalgate to

Hororata Road, on Saturday November 5 at 10am. Once everyone has

arrived, motor vehicles and motorcycles will line up then continue to the

Hororata Showgrounds, where they’ll make an entrance at 10.30am.

After a grand parade lap, vehicles will park up on display for the day

and vehicle owners are then free to enjoy the Hororata Highland Games

events or sit back in the sun and chat to visitors about their cars.

A special entry price of $12.00 per person is available only to rally

entrants and their passengers and each person will be issued with a

wristband, however the wristbands will not be accepted at any of the

public entrances. Vehicles must remain on display until 4pm.

Numbers are limited so get your entry in early. For more information,

phone Colin Hey on 021 883 807.

Prevention and action are key

That annoying squeak, unusual

noise, or you notice your vehicle

isn’t running right, then don’t

leave it–see Simon and his team

at Rolleston Diesel & Petrols.

They will find the problem, do

any necessary repairs, and ensure

your vehicle runs at its best, so it

does not end up costing you more

money.

Although the cost of living is high

and cars may be the last thing you

want to spend money on, Simon

recommends you check tyres and

have your vehicle serviced, with

repairs undertaken as soon as

possible. He says, “We have been

finding those things are being

neglected and unfortunately ending

up costing them more”. Getting

onto those repairs sooner and using

good quality parts is essential.

Another issue Simon and the team

have recently noticed is problems

caused by some cheap vehicle parts,

especially filters. Simon suggests,

“stick to a good brand that you can

trust, and you know it will work”.

Rolleston Diesel & Petrols at

839 Jones Road, Rolleston, offer

general servicing and maintenance

on any vehicle type, make and

model and provides a full range of

mechanical repairs, specialising

in brakes and suspension. They

are an experienced team who

are trade certified and qualified

to issue a Warrant of Fitness. A

core part of the business’s success

is the personal approach used

when dealing with vehicles and

customers. Simon and the team will

ensure you are a satisfied customer

who knows they can trust any work

completed and will be happy with

the outcome.

The small team at Rolleston

Diesel & Petrols are approachable

and knowledgeable staff who are

reliable and offer excellent, efficient

customer service when dealing

with all your vehicle servicing and

maintenance needs. Book ahead

to suit your timetable; if necessary,

parts can be preorganised to avoid

delays. However, if you have a

problem, the team are happy to deal

with any drop-ins.

Don’t delay and let minor issues

turn into an expensive repair bill.

Toyota expands RAV4 hybrid range

IT WAS A LONG, draining

struggle – coming to a sport

utility vehicle buying decision.

My wife and I looked deeply at

three contenders – two hybrids

and a conventionally-powered

four-cylinder model.

We looked at all factors – fuel

usage, fit for purpose, and price

– what you actually get for your

money.

Toyota tempted us greatly. Not

only do you have the knowledge

that the listed price is all you pay,

as on road costs are included

in that, but if you do buy into

a hybrid, then there’s the benefit

of the Government’s Clean

Car Rebate which accounts for

over $2000 on all RAV4 hybrid

models.

This evaluation surrounds

the RAV4 XSE hybrid of which

buyers can claim back $2387.24.

The XSE sits midway through the

hybrid line-up and it is priced

at $53,990. There are five hybrid

variants that start at $46,990 for

the GX, a GXL adds $3000, while

the Limited and Adventure both

sit at $57,990.

Regular readers will recall my

evaluation of the rugged Adventure

model last month which, as

its name would suggest, is a little

adventurous in its looks. It is

one of two new variants into the

hybrid range along with the XSE.

The latter is a lot more conservative,

but it is a high-specification

variant that will please with its

quality of build, level of specification

and comfort, although as far

as the latter is concerned it would

be perfect if only the in-cabin

heater came up to temperature

quicker, those frosty Canterbury

winter mornings are quite taxing.

Major items fitted include coloured

synthetic leather trim with

heated seats, electric driver’s seat

adjustment, electric tailgate, radar

cruise control and a comprehensive

Toyota Safety Sense suite of

kit, easily earning a five-star Australasian

New Car Assessment

Program rating.

While that’s a healthy package,

take into account too, that the

RAV4 has just undergone a very

mild facelift through new lights

up front providing a point of difference.

The XSE variant stands out

as well with its two-tone colour

scheme and piano black accents,

it is a point of difference amongst

the others, but it is definitely not as

striking as the Adventure model.

Under the bonnet the RAV4

gets the 2.5-litre petrol/Hybrid

Synergy Drive system that is

based around the mechanicals

which have made Prius the go-to

name in terms of describing

hybrid technology. However,

HIGH GRADE: The RAV4 XSE has black wheels and black

accents.

TOYOTA RAV4 XSE HYBRID: Definite off-road potential.

the RAV4 doesn’t get the 1.8-litre

engine, instead its driveline

comes courtesy of the Camry and

the combined petrol/electric energy

transfer is ushered through

continuously variable automatic

transmission.

The driveline combination

develops a total of 163kW and

221Nm, varying at any given time

depending on whether the engine

is active or if the batteries are supplying

the drive.

Of course, electric propulsion is

the ultimate aim, and if situations

allowed, that would be the case

but, of course, battery capacity

is constantly depleting, and as a

vehicle it is required to accelerate

and maintain momentum,

which is why the petrol engine

operates at will. You can opt for a

full EV mode, but that is only for

short distances and you need to

be very gentle with the throttle,

the engine will cut in with little

provocation.

That aside,the entire process

is seamless with the result being

some rather remarkable fuel

usage figures. Toyota rates the

entire RAV4 hybrid line-up with

a 5.3-litre per 100km combined

cycle average. The trip computer

was listing an impressive

6.2l/100km average when I took

the evaluation car back to the

dealership. If you are doing a long

• Price – Toyota RAV4 XSE

hybrid, $53,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4600mm; width, 1855mm;

height, 1685mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2487cc, 131kW, 221Nm,

continuously variable

automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.1sec

• Fuel usage – 5.3l/100km

highway cruise you can expect

the display to show around

4l/100km at 100km/h.

I picked up the XSE variant

directly after dropping off the

Adventure model, and having a

fortnight with the two models

was a good indication of what

one could expect to live with on a

daily basis, and I can report it is a

very tempting proposition.

On both occasions I drove west

from the city interlinking with

State Highway 72 the scenic route

that runs parallel to the Malvern

Hills, the roads were dry and it

was easy to maintain a steady

pace along with thrifty fuel usage.

When corners are presented,

predictable handling manners are

offered with accurate turn-in and

controlled body balance.

Interestingly, the Adventure

and XSE get wheels of a different

size – 19in and 18in respectively.

However, I couldn’t pick

any difference in the feel of the

two models, both sit quietly and

comfortably on the road, and

handling-wise the feel at the

wheel in both cases is sharp and

involving.

As good fortune would have

it, the XSE model arrived on

a weekend when my daughter

was moving from one inner-city

apartment to another. With the

rear seats folded flat we were able

to load everything from a 65in

television to bookcases and duchesses.

It’s in that type of environment

that sport utility vehicles come

into their own. The RAV4 has

a cavernous rear load section –

with the rear seats upright up

543-litres can be carried there –

and that’s not bad from a wagon

that sits at just 4.6m.

That being the case, it’s also

no surprise to note that demand

for all RAV4 hybrid models is so

high that orders only are being

taken and delivery could well be

out to 12 months.

I’m sure those who do place

an order will be well satisfied

when it eventually rolls up their

driveway.

Private, Quiet & Space

Welcome to 10 St Andrews Lane, Kirwee. This property

of 1027sqm has living the good life written all over it, and

the modern permanent material home is set back from

the road in a quiet cul-de-sac.

Well fenced for security for small children or a pet or two,

the home is west and north facing to capture the sun.

The home offers a large open-plan kitchen, with walk-in

pantry, dining, and family area with a separate lounge.

Sliding glass doors lead out to a west-facing patio area

and the garden. Up the hallway are four large bedrooms,

an office (complete with fibre), family bathroom, and the

master with a walk-in robe and modern en suite. Internal

access is derived from a double garage. The home is very

well heated with double glazing, free-standing log fire,

two heat pumps, and a built-in gas fire. On the roof are

solar panels keeping that electricity bill very low.

To the back of the home are wood sheds, and two small

utility sheds. A large lawn area has an easy-care garden

of trees and shrubs.

Darfield is your nearest main town with the City and

Airport being half an hours drive away.

Southbridge 77 Gordon Street

Four bedroom family haven on 2023m2

If you want that rural feeling and views over farmland but still want the children to be able to walk to school then look no

further than this solid permanent material home on the edge of the popular village of Southbridge. Sitting nicely for sun this

home offers something for all of the family with its open plan living area with French doors leading out onto a north and west

facing deck which in turn looks out over a large lawn area. Adjoining the living area is the dining space and beyond that to the

kitchen which features ample bench space and storage. The four bedrooms are all genuine doubles and with there being two

bathrooms and separate WC this really is a family friendly home. Add to that a separate laundry and a coat/boots room all

boxes are ticked to allow you and your family all the space that you require. Outdoors there is a single garage and space to

Tips for first home buyers

Struggling to get on the property ladder

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

Estate Authority (REA) research has found

that more than half of all first home buyers

– even the ones who successfully buy a

property – find the process stressful and

overwhelming.

“We know it’s hard for people when

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

complex legal process and a huge financial

deal. We want to empower them to feel

more confident and in control when they’re

making such a big decision.”

1. SORT OUT YOUR FINANCES

You’ll already know that saving is a big

part of getting ready to buy, but do you

know what else you need to do?

Getting financial advice from a qualified

advisor could be a useful step in your

planning. Owning a property means

you’re responsible for all the maintenance

and repairs – and for paying rates and

insurance. Owning an apartment may also

mean you need to pay body corporate fees.

These costs can be a bit of a shock to the

system if you’ve rented for a long time.

“It’s also a good idea to get conditional

pre-approved finance arranged so you can

move quickly when you spot a property

you really like. Having conditional preapproval

lets you know the price range you

can buy in and it shows agents and sellers

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

if you’re planning to bid on a property at

auction.”

Don’t forget to explore ways that

you might be able to get help from the

Government. There are various forms of

assistance available if you’re a KiwiSaver

member, buying in certain areas, want

to buy a former Housing New Zealand

property or are Māori and want to live on

your ancestral land.

2. NEEDS VS WANTS

Many first home buyers discover a big

gap between what they’d like to buy and

what they can afford when they first start

looking.

“Sit down and write a tight list of what

your absolute must-haves are, then work

out what you’re willing to compromise on”.

If you’re thinking about pets and

children arriving in the short-to-medium

term, think about how these will change

your needs. Will you need to be near to

childcare or schools? Will you need a

fenced property?

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

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

property’ checklist on settled.govt.nz that

will help you keep track of all the questions

to ask about a property. This is especially

useful if you’re looking at more than one

property at a time.”

3. DO YOUR HOMEWORK

Don’t let your desperation to find

somewhere blind you to a property’s faults.

“Do as much research as you can about

a property,” that means getting a lawyer

on board to make sure all the paperwork

is in order and to help you understand if

there are any issues. We also recommend

getting a qualified building inspector who

has professional indemnity insurance to

prepare a comprehensive report on the

property.”

If you’re worried about paying for this

kind of report before you make an offer

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

make them a condition of your offer.

Remember that paying for good advice is

an investment that will buy you more peace

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

4. RECOGNISE YOUR LIMITS

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

especially for first-home buyers, but we’re

not all blessed with the right skills. Factor

this in before you make an offer on a

‘renovator’s dream’.

“Be honest with yourselves about how

much DIY you can really do, especially if

you’ve got pets and kids”.

“Getting professionals in to help will

cost more, but it will also make the process

faster. It may also be better in the long term

when it comes to selling the property if any

work has been done properly with the right

consents.”

information on buying or selling, check

Buying off the

plan – what you

need to know

Buying off plan requires all the same due diligence

and care as buying an existing property.

Buying a brand new home off the plans

can seem extremely attractive, especially

if you’re struggling to find a property that

meets all your needs. If you decide to go

down this route it is absolutely crucial

to enter the process with your eyes wide

open. Reading the fine print – starting

with the photo caption advising you that

‘some images are an artist’s impression’ –

is just the beginning.

There are many benefits to buying off

a plan. Not only are you signing up for

a new home that should meet all the

latest building specifications, but you are

buying something at a set price with an

initially low outlay. A long settlement

period (while the development is

completed) gives you time to get your

finances in order. In theory, if the market

remains buoyant then the property will

increase in value over this period so you

will be getting more than what you paid

for at the outset.

However, the process is not without

risks, says chief executive of the Real

Estate Agents Authority (REAA).

“If the market falls, then you may

encounter problems if you try to sell.

Also, the property may not meet your

expectations and the build may take

longer than expected. You are entirely

reliant on the developer, so you are at

risk if their business fails and/or the

development is on-sold to another

company.”

Buying off plan requires all the same

due diligence and care as buying an

existing property.

“Start by putting in some solid

research”.

“Don’t be swayed by pre-sale sweeteners

and flash show homes that may bear

little resemblance to the actual finished

product. Do your homework about the

developer and the construction firm –

find out what their track records are,

examine their credentials and look at

any previous developments they have

been involved in. Remember that you

are giving these people your hard-earned

money and you need to be confident that

they will deliver the goods.”

Generally, buying off a plan means

providing a deposit upfront to secure the

property. The remainder of the money

is due on completion, but you will have

to prove that you have the finance from

the outset. While the long lead-in period

provides time to save money, there is

also a risk that interest rates may go up

or lending criteria may change. Discuss

these issues with your bank or financial

advisor to make sure you are prepared if

the situation changes.

“If a real estate agent is involved

in selling properties in a proposed

development, they can help you navigate

the process”.

It’s also important to engage a lawyer

to help you understand all the details of

the sale and purchase agreement and any

covenants on the title. These may extend

to the ‘look and feel’ of a development or

new subdivision, and include restrictions

regarding fences, landscaping, exterior

colour and cladding choices and may

even include car parking rules for you or

your visitors.

Developers will approach selling off

plans in many different ways. Some

contracts are designed to allow the buyer

to choose their own floor plan; others

may allow the developer to change the

layout without checking first. Every

detail of the property, from the expected

timeline to the finishes used, must be

spelled out in the contract.

It is vital to get legal advice before

signing anything.

“If you don’t go through these details

very carefully before you sign you may

be in for some unpleasant surprises later.

Remember to check the contract to see

if there is a ‘sunset clause’ that specifies

what will happen if the development is

not finished in time. Don’t forget to ask

what will happen if the developer goes

into liquidation and the project is sold to

another company. The last thing you want

is for your dream home, not to mention

your deposit, to vanish into thin air.”

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Attention to detail a feature

of Lincoln show home

First impressions of the latest Trident

show home in Lincoln’s Te Whāriki

subdivision is the attention to detail

whether it’s a patterned tile in the

shower or a seat in the laundry.

The built-in shelves and display areas

come complete with their own lighting

and create a real visual impact and the

opportunity to enjoy some of those

special pieces that normally aren’t on

display.

This beautiful spacious and welcoming

home is spread across 250m2. Of note

are the beautiful gold fixtures including

the handles and tapware in the kitchen,

which enhances the home’s classy style.

Surrounded by decks begging for a

range of outdoor living options with

access from the living areas and the

main bedroom, this four-bedroom

home has two spacious living areas

including a separate lounge with raked

ceiling.

The roomy fourth bedroom closest

to the living area is currently set up as a

study, which makes sense if the owners

need a dedicated space to work from

home.

In addition, there is an ensuite and

family bathroom along with plenty of

storage in the hallway tucked behind

beautiful grooved doors, which feature

throughout the house.

The walk-through laundry from the

double garage is extremely functional

with a seat to take off dirty shoes before

entering the house while the mix of

exterior claddings and interior features

create a variety of finishes inside the

home.

Te Whāriki subdivision is a new

community within Lincoln located

between the university and the township

while New Zealand builder Trident

Homes is well known for its innovative

modern homes.

Their latest show home is at 88

Southfield Drive and is open from

12pm until 4pm Wednesdays to

Sundays in Te Whariki.
