‘A waste of time’ – dairy owner

after meeting ram-raider

• By Tina Grumball

THE OWNER of the

Prebbleton Dairy targeted

four times by youth believes a

family group conference was a

waste of time.

The meeting involved one

of the teens, a 13-year-old,

his family, Oranga Tamariki,

police and four other victims,

including another dairy

owner.

Facilitated by Oranga

Tamariki, youth justice family

group conferences are

intended to help youth take

responsibility and leave them

with a plan for the future.

While the victims could

speak at the meeting, Sangeet

Mehta said the decision had

already been made as to what

would happen with the youth.

The victim’s views did not

make a difference.

TARGETED Government

funding is set to benefit Lincoln

to the tune of $5.1 million,

enabling the town’s main street

upgrade to kick off earlier than

planned.

The Lincoln Town Centre Plan

has been a project in long-term

planning for the district council

for about seven years. The funding

would allow the first stage

of the project to be brought

forward one year, to begin in the

2023/24 financial year.

Improvements will be along

the eastern end of Gerald St,

from West Belt to Kildare Tce,

including installation of traffic

signals with pedestrian crossings

at the intersection with West Belt,

cycle lanes replacing parallel car

parks, footpath and streetscape

upgrades, and intersection and

drainage improvements.

The district council will add

$1.2m of its own funding for

improvements, including the addition

of nearby open-space car

parking, located behind shops

on Gerald St, between William

St and Lyttelton St.

The district council is due to

receive $5.59 million from the

first round of the Better Off

Funding package assigned by the

Government as part of the Three

Waters Reform. It has chosen the

first stage of the Lincoln Town

Centre Plan as its key project.

Springs Ward

district councillor

Malcolm Lyall

welcomed the

allocation and

council decision,

meeting last week.

and truly overdue. The people

of Lincoln have had to wait

and wait, while we have seen

development happening around

the district. The three ward

councillors have been fighting

for funding in this area, I’m

overjoyed we are getting this

going,” Lyall said.

He said the district council

could also bring forward the

following stages, of extending

improvements along Gerald St

and more car parking, as it went

through its long-term planning

process.

Lyall said the district council

had responded to public concern

earlier in the planning process

about losing parallel parks to the

cycle lanes, by purchasing series

of sections for car parking.

He said the improvements

would make the town centre

safer for pedestrians and cyclists.

Chief executive David Ward

commented on climate change

considerations in his report to

district councillors for the meeting.

“The Lincoln town centre upgrade

supports improved mode

choice and low emissions travel

through the provision of safe,

accessible and enjoyable walking

and cycling options within the

town centre,” Ward said.

The district council plans to

use the remainder of the $5.59m

Better Off Funding package for

feasibility studies for a Leeston

health facility and enhancing

the scope of the Arthur’s Pass to

Te Waihora Cycle Trail, along

with supporting mana whenua

governance participation in

district council subcommittees

in future.

A second round of Better

Off funding will be released

to district councils around the

country in 2024.

Pak ’N Save

step closer

in Rolleston

• By Susan Sandys

PAK ’N SAVE is set to come

to Rolleston, after a hearing

commissioner has issued a

decision to grant an application

by Foodstuffs.

The grocery giant plans to build

the supermarket at 157 Levi Rd,

where it will include parking for

500 vehicles and five new vehicle

access points, and employment

for up to 260 staff.

About 50 submissions were

received for the resource consent

application. While supporters

were looking forward to cheaper

groceries and more competition

in the town, objectors were concerned

about an increase in traffic

congestion, noise from heavy

vehicles and the supermarket’s

mechanical services plant and car

park, visual effects from signage,

light spill from external lighting,

and adverse effects from earthworks

during construction.

District council group manager

growth and development Tim

Harris said the decision was

subject to conditions around construction

and operation, ensuring

minimum disruption to neighbours

and to address concerns

raised in submissions.

An appeal period is now open

to submitters until October 20.

Bledisloe Cup just the medicine

• By Barry Clarke

IT CONTAINS 48 stubbies

and it was filled four times –

deservedly – after the All Blacks

breathtaking win over Australia

in Melbourne.

And now the time-honoured

Bledisloe Cup has been toasted

by rugby and sports fans in

Lincoln.

The cup had pride of place

in the Selwyn Community

Pharmacy last week. News of its

temporary home spread quickly

around the township.

“It’s been unbelievable,”

pharmacist Dave Wyatt told the

Selwyn Times.

“There’s disbelief that it’s actually

the genuine Bledisloe Cup.

It’s not a fake or a look-a-like.

The size of it . . . I can’t believe

how big it is.”

So how did the cup get

from Melbourne after the

All Blacks nail-biting

controversial 39-37 win, and the

40-14 thumping of the Aussies

at Eden Park on Saturday, to

Lincoln?

Over a couple of beers.

Wyatt is a neighbour of Jason

Ryan, one of the All Blacks assistant

coaches. They both live in

Lincoln.

When the All Blacks

had returned to their respective

parts of the country, Ryan

and Wyatt caught up for a

beer.

Said Wyatt: “Jase texted me

and said ‘pop over for a beer’.

Jase cracked open a beer and we

went through to the next room

and there’s the Bledisloe Cup! I

thought: ‘Jeepers, how good is

that’.”

Wyatt was told the cup can

take 48 stubbies and during

So when the pharmacy re-opened

last Tuesday after Monday’s public

holiday, the Bledisloe Cup was put

into a protective crate, put on to the

flat deck of a vehicle and driven to the

pharmacy.

“We’ve had so many people

coming in, grandparents with their

grandkids. It’s been just amazing,”

said Wyatt.

Wyatt and his staff are big rugby

supporters. Crusaders and All Blacks

flags take pride of place whenever

big games are on, and staff wore their

rugby attire when the Bledisloe was

on display.

The cup has returned to Ryan’s

• From page 1

He was also left wondering

what police were waiting for as

the teen had about 44 charges.

“Still our law and order says

we have to give him a chance to

be a better person. Within six

months, 44 crimes he (committed),

so why are you waiting for

the 45th?”

Mehta had a simple answer:

“If you do the crime, you need to

face it and that’s what I told the

boy.”

The youths would not stop

while they believed “no one can

touch (them),” Mehta said.

Mehta’s business had been

ram-raided three times and had

been the target of an armed robbery.

The robbery happened in late

August when teenagers – the

youngest who has been identified

as 10 – burst into the shop armed

with a spanner at about 7pm one

evening.

They tried to strike his wife but

she avoided the blows by pushing

a Covid screen at the offenders.

Their toddler was in the back of

the shop and Mehta was visiting

a patient at Christchurch Hospital

at the time.

When Mehta asked for a trespass

notice for the four offenders

police had identified, he was told

the notices had been given.

But when he asked for photographs

of the boys so he would

know who to stop, police would

not give them to him.

The offenders had been wearing

masks and hoods, he said.

How would his wife know who

they were if they walked into

their shop again?

He asked the boy at the conference

why he did it. The teen

replied he did it for fun and for

social media videos.

‘If you do the crime, you

need to face it and that’s

what I told the boy.’

– Sangeet Mehta

Mehta said he would not be

waiting for an email regarding

the outcome as he honestly believed

nothing would happen.

He also wondered who was

helping business owners hit by

ram-raiders. He had to fix the

door and the wall, and install a

steel gate and bollards. He had to

pull back his open hours because

of safety concerns.

“I’m losing my business. Who

is it affecting? Me. Why? Because

of youth, and we’re still thinking

about ‘oh, we should have to give

him another chance to become a

nicer person’.”

Mehta queried why he should

have to pay insurance excess and

fix everything when he was the

victim.

He said all of the dairy owners

around him who had been hit

were tired of being left to pick

up the pieces without more help

from the Government or action

from the police.

When asked if he was still

intending to sell his business,

Mehta noted that “millions of

dairies want to sell but no one

will buy”.

“If I know your car is going to

break down next year, is anyone

going to buy?” he said.

Anglers out

CANTERBURY anglers were out

in force on Saturday to fish the

first day of the new season.

October 1 is always the start

of the new season, and this year

it fell on a Saturday and was

also the first day of the school

holidays.

This made opening day in the

region a popular family affair in

many instances.

Fish & Game New Zealand

rangers were out checking

compliance and reported a lot of

anglers from the top of the Lewis

Pass all the way down to the

Waitaki River.

The weather was great for fishing,

frosty but clear, throughout

the region and many anglers travelled

hours to fish their favourite

spots.

Canterbury angler Neil Goldie

braved the early morning frost

to fish the Waimakariri River

mouth.

Trying first for a sea-run

salmon, Goldie said: “It’s a

little bit early for a salmon, but

with warmer temperatures at

sea in summer, there’s a chance

of a salmon taking advantage of

the cooler waters now to make a

run.

Ensuring Safer Water –

Chlorination Upgrades 2022

New Zealand’s drinking water laws have changed.

Under the Water Services Act 2021, councils must chlorinate public

drinking water supplies by 15 November 2022. Selwyn District Council has

started applying for exemptions for its previously unchlorinated supplies

and is expecting feedback on these applications from Taumata Arowai in

early 2023.

If you’re on a water supply that isn’t currently chlorinated, we will be

installing chlorination in order to comply with the law as per the

below timetable.

“With it being the second year

of the sea-run salmon season bag

limit and the harvest card, you

have to selectively harvest your

salmon, so fishing in cooler waters

will be great for the fish if you

need to release it.

“The sea-run salmon fishery has

moved to more of a sports fishery

than a harvest fishery as anglers

do their bit to help the recovery of

the fishery,” Goldie said.

Trout anglers in the Te Waihora/Lake

Ellesmere area were out

in numbers.

The scenic Harts Creek was

popular as the day progressed,

with many anglers trying to tempt

the elusive fish inhabiting the

creek.

With Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere

open to the sea at the moment,

the Halswell, L2, Selwyn

Rivers and Harts Creek were enticing

for many sea-run trout that

have entered the lake, making the

area a popular spot for anglers.

Central South Island Fish &

Game officer Nicola Dellaway

spent her first day on the job with

colleagues checking licences on

Lake Opuha, South Canterbury.

Forty anglers were checked,

mostly boat anglers but a few

shore-based. This was a typical

number for this popular opening

day destination, with many travelling

from as far as Dunedin and

Christchurch.

The fishing was excellent, with

most anglers catching two or

three brown or rainbow trout for

the dinner table.

Below State Highway 1 at

the Opihi River, father and son

anglers, Stephen and Alfie Henly,

went out on an opening day mission.

In spite of the frosty start, they

both had luck, catching and

releasing some trout caught on

soft-bait lures.

Jet boat-based fishing is a

tradition on the Waitaki River

for opening, and there were at

least 18 boats on the river in the

morning. Shore-based anglers

near Kurow were also successful –

mainly on rainbow trout around

700gm.

mouth on Saturday morning. He later moved on to Harts Creek.

VOTE for PETER TROLOVE

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.

A FUNDRAISER for popular

Motukurara harness racing

owner-trainer Murray

Edmonds has been labelled

a massive, and at times

emotional, success.

More

than 300

people were

involved in

the sell-out

dinner at

the Silks at

Addington

Raceway on

Murray

Edmonds

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Huge support for popular trainer

September

22, with

thousands

of dollars also raised through

raffles and more than 50 auctions.

The function was organised

by Stevie Golding, Sandi

Curtin and Murray’s niece

Aimee Edmonds, after the recent

news that Edmonds had

been diagnosed with a brain

tumour.

Edmonds was at the function

along with family and

friends from all over the

country. Clearly touched by

the occasion he described the

night as “pretty unreal”.

“We are just over the

moon,” said Golding, who

also emceed the night. “Everyone

enjoyed themselves,

and there were so many kind

words.”

GOOD CAUSE: This Dexter Dunn racing suit was auctioned off at the sell-out

fundraiser for Murray Edmonds at Addington Raceway.

While it was emotional and

heartfelt at times it also had its

raucous moments, none more

so than when it looked like

one of the Edmonds-trained

runners was going to win

race 5.

Watching Our Coin was

ahead with 100 to go, only

to be beaten on the line by

Rakanotta.

“Man – everyone was yelling

at the top of their lungs.

I’ve never been in a louder

room during a horse race, it

was unreal.

“It was just a fantastic

night,” said Curtin.

“The number of items that

were donated by people, some

of them didn’t even know

Muzz, but they could see it

was such a good cause.”

One example of that

generosity came just hours

before the function. Golding

was picking up some items

when he met up with Gary

Roberts from Sulky Wheels in

Templeton. On hearing what

Golding was up to Roberts

donated a work sulky. It sold

for $2800.

Other popular items included

a signed Kiwis Anzac

rugby league jersey that sold

for $2400, a signed Dexter

Dunn racing suit ($2300), a

Marcoola service fee ($2100),

and an old Phar Lap photo

($2200).

An offer by Robbie and

Carla Holmes to break in a

yearling was also sought after,

going for $2300.

Some items raised a few

laughs, including a fishing

trip with Golding himself that

went for $2000 (bought by

David Butt) and Mark Purdon

buying a case of pinot noir

donated by brother Barry for

$2000.

A final tally up for the night

is still a few days away – but

the night achieved all it set out

to do, and more.

“We can’t thank everyone

enough, the people at

Addington and everyone who

was involved,” said Golding,

“it was amazing.”

Rising costs

see businesses

put up prices

• By Susan Sandys

MANY SELWYN businesses are

raising their prices to customers

in the face of increasing costs.

Impacts of rising costs

nationally and internationally

were shown up starkly in results

from the recent six-monthly

Selwyn Business Survey,

organised by the district council.

It was undertaken in August,

and 107 businesses responded.

Eighty-four per cent reported

increased costs. In line with this,

44 per cent of businesses said

they had increased prices in the

past six months, and similar

numbers expected to increase

prices again in the coming

months.

Business investment in Selwyn

was lower over the past six

months, with six per cent of

businesses investing, compared

to 15 per cent in the previous six

months.

There were 21 per cent of

businesses that reported reduced

profits over the previous six

months, while 11 per cent

reported falling sales and four

per cent reduced staff.

At the same time, 18 per cent

of businesses were expecting

their profits to increase over the

next six months, 18 per cent were

expecting to increase investment

in the next six months, and 11

per cent were intending to hire

new staff.

District council group

manager community services

and facilities Denise Kidd said it

was good to see businesses had

a positive outlook in spite of the

economic challenges.

“It’s particularly pleasing to

see businesses reporting that

they’re planning to hire and

invest over next six months. It

shows the underlying strength of

the Selwyn economy that even in

tougher times our businesses are

generally holding up well,” Kidd

said.

Selwyn Printing Company

owner Derek Smith said he was

increasing prices where possible

in response to rising costs, but

had lost clients doing this.

Figuring out the formula

Five-year-old Arlo Stinson of Lincoln feeds kunekune piglet Spot at Lincoln University’s

annual community day last week, assisted by Brooke Kenyon. About 2000 people attended.

“In the print industry, it’s quite

competitive in the high value

jobs,” Smith said.

The last six months had been

“unbelievably tough”.

As well as increasing costs,

about 20 per cent of his staff had

been away sick on any given day

since May. Levels of illness with

winter bugs and other ailments

was still high in the wake of

Covid.

The company had 12 staff

across three offices, at Lincoln,

Rolleston and Christchurch, and

was advertising for more.

Nevertheless, he generally had

good business confidence and

was optimistic about the future.

“The economy seems to have

held better than what I was

expecting,” he said. “The demand

is there at the moment, we are

just struggling to fulfil it.”

Power poles

check-up

We’ve started our routine, power poles

inspection programme across the

Banks Peninsula area.

We are proactively checking 4,500 power

poles throughout Akaroa, Lincoln and

Springston. The inspection is underway

and will be carried out over the next few

months, wrapping up in January 2023.

Where poles need to be replaced, power

outages may be necessary to carry out

the work safely. In those cases, we will let

the affected people know ahead of time.

If we need to access private property to

inspect power poles, Orion will contact

landowners.

Thank you for your understanding as

we ensure we continue to deliver a safe,

reliable and resilient network.

If you have any questions, please do not

hesitate to contact our Customer Support

team. Additional information can be

FUDGE CAKES, caramel slices,

Belgian slices and hot fluffy

scones.

This enticing array, and more,

is set to cover the kitchen bench

at the Leeston home of Wilma

Grant, as she prepares to enter

the Ellesmere A&P Association’s

Selwyn Spring Show.

The show is returning to its full

glory this year. The 150th jubilee

show was canned in 2020 due to

the pandemic, while the postponed

150th jubilee show was

held with restricted classes and

for exhibitors only last year.

“It’s good to get back into it,”

Wilma said.

After about 30 years of entering

the home industries sections

of cooking, knitting and cut

flowers, she had missed these

when they were not held for the

last two years.

Wilma, 73, said in earlier years

she could have 20 or so entries.

She had won dozens of prize

cards and prizes, and claimed

many trophies, over the years.

Among her highlights was receiving

a medal at the royal show

of 2008.

Her family had four generations

of entering the show. Her

mother Joyce Hillyer entered

once with a chocolate cake, while

her three children and grandchildren

entered many a category as

youngsters.

This year Wilma had about 10

entries in baking and knitting,

and would be entering cut flowers

closer to the day. She said the busy

week leading up to the event would

all be worth it come show day.

FAMILY TIME: Wilma Grant is looking forward to getting

her creations back in the home industries shed at Selwyn

“It’s a great family time, to be

out and about and meet different

friends,” Wilma said.

“And I just love to see other

people’s work, it’s always interesting

to see what other people can

make and do.”

The Selwyn Spring Show

Elaine takes top award

ELLESMERE TENNIS Sub

Association member Elaine

Rodley has been recognised in

Tennis Canterbury’s annual

awards.

Rodley was named

Administrator of the Year

for the 2021/2022 season,

in acknowledgement of her

multiple roles at the sub

association, where she has been

involved for more than 14 years.

Treasurer Tracy Henderson

said the award was well

deserved. Rodley was the sub

association’s statistician for

both the senior and junior interclub.

Her integral knowledge

of Tennis New Zealand Match

Hub software meant she had

been able to quickly manoeuvre

draws throughout the pandemic,

ensuring a full season for

players.

In addition, she was an

active and valued member of

the Ellesmere management

committee, competitions

committee, and junior advisory

committee, where she supported

all clubs ensuring players were

involved in games each week

and at tournaments.

“In her spare time she updates

the Ellesmere senior, junior

websites and Facebook as part

of a team. She also plays a lot of

tennis!”

ADMINISTRATOR OF THE YEAR: Ellesmere Tennis Sub

Association president Belinda Edmond (left) congratulates

Elaine Rodley on her award.

Relationship to form

between council and

Te Taumutu Rūnanga

THE DISTRICT council and Te

Taumutu Rūnanga will sign a

formal relationship agreement

next month.

At its fortnightly meeting last

week, the district council voted

to sign the agreement between

itself and Te Taumutu Rūnanga,

following on from long-running

discussions.

The agreement encourages

continuing strong relationships,

while acknowledging the

commitments of both to work

together and grow a new age of

local government, reflecting the

role of mana whenua as a treaty

partner of the Crown.

District council chief

executive David Ward said the

document was a stepping stone

on the journey of relationship

between the district council

and mana whenua. It was

intended to be the first of potentially

a number of similar agreements

with mana whenua and

tangata whenua for Waikirikiri/

Selwyn.

“This is something we’ve been

working on for a while and it

will be a special day to finalise

a lot of hard work when we sign

this document. It will also be

special to move to the next stage,

developing the opportunities

that exist for us to work in partnership

for Waikirikiri/Selwyn,”

Ward said.

It would be an enabling

document which recognised the

role and responsibilities of both

rūnanga and the district council

across the district.

A&P SHOW: Cassels Brewery has come on board as the

anchor sponsor of the NZ Agricultural Show.

Cassels Brewery major show sponsor

THE CANTERBURY A&P

Association has signed beer

brewer Cassels Brewery as the

anchor sponsor for the show

grounds.

The deal comes with the local

association needing to service

a $1 million loan from the city

council.

The 10-year loan was provided

to the organisers of the NZ

Agricultural Show following the

Covid lockdowns and the effects

on income with no spectators for

the last two NZ shows.

Show general manager Tracy

Ahern said the three-year

deal with Cassels Brewery is

crucial for the future of the

association.

“Without the support, we

would be struggling to meet our

key performance indicators to

pay back our loan that we owe to

the council,” said Ahern.

“We are very excited to have

them on board . . . a local iconic

brand like our own.”

Cassels Brewery will feature

prominently at the show, the

biggest week of the year in

Christchurch, from November

9-11.

“They will be on our members’

marquee . . . on our corporate

hosting and they are bringing

their Cassels bus along, which

will be exciting,” said Ahern.

There will also be the Cassels

Baabaa bar and evening

entertainment for the first time

at the show, from Tuesday to

Friday night.

“We have got TikiTane, lots of

bands and music, mechanical

bull, paint by numbers,” said

Ahern.

There will also be a BBQ

competition.

While Ahern won’t reveal how

much the sponsorship deal is

worth for commercial reasons,

she says it is “significant”.

“We can’t rely on one week of

income a year.

“Our challenge is to put

Canterbury A&P Association

and the show in a far sounder

financial position by forming

new relationships with

businesses that share our vision.”

Cassels Brewery chief

executive Marshall Moir says

they are thrilled to support

CAPA and to help bring the A&P

show back to the community.

“As a family-owned

Christchurch business, we’re

really excited by the plans the

show team have for this year.

The focus on local, quality and

craftsmanship are the values that

are most important to us,” said

Moir.

It was only six months ago

Cassels Brewery lost its company

founder and developer Alasdair

Cassels.

The 71-year-old died in April.

Cassels is well known for his

investment in the brewery after

the 2011 earthquake and after

100 days their structurally sound

but broken brewery was reborn

to include a bar, café, music

venue and restaurant.

Rolleston’s Rotary centenary a glam affair

THE ROARING twenties came to

Rolleston on Saturday night, as Rolleston

Rotary Club celebrated 100 years of

Rotary in New Zealand at a glamorous

ball.

The Gatsby Ball was held at Rolleston

College’s auditorium, which was transformed

complete with dance floor, round

tables, and music from 10-piece band

Sound Sensation.

President David Lewes was happy with

the high turnout of about 220 guests to

the event, which had been postponed

from last year.

“What was remarkable was seeing the

young demographic of those in attendance,

enjoying a fantastic night out, all in

the name of showcasing an organisation

that unites individuals and sees people

creating lasting change within their communities,”

Lewes said.

He said he and fellow ball goers had

been in awe of the skill of a group of

Rolleston College senior hospitality students,

who catered for the evening.

Funds raised would be distributed back

into the community through various

initiatives and projects.

ROARING TWENTIES: Feathers, furs and finery were out in force at the

Gatsby Ball on Saturday night, as Rolleston Rotary Club celebrated 100

years of Rotary in New Zealand. Above – Tracey van der Kley, Wendy

Inaugural festival celebrates all

• By Geoff Sloan

A DREAM became reality as

dancers jived and jitterbugged their

way around the dance floor at the

inaugural Vintage Fest NZ, held at

the Lincoln Event Centre over the

long weekend.

The brand new event was the

brainchild of Rolleston’s Sharvelle

Mackay, a long-time fan of all

things vintage.

“This was an opportunity to put

the love of vintage into one place

and make a really prestigious event

for all of our vintage lovers,” she

said.

The festival showcased everything

vintage, with the theme of wartime

and the victory era. Classic car and

military vehicles were on display,

along with vintage stall-holders and

a best dressed pageant.

Mackay said she worked with

her fellow committee members

for a year-and-a-half to create the

community event, but admits to a

few sleepless nights.

“It costs a lot of money to put on

an event like this, and to have the

money up front, to be able to pay

for certain things has been quite

difficult. So that has definitely been

our biggest challenge”.

Any proceeds will be reinvested

back into next year’s event, which

she hints might have an ‘old

Hollywood’ theme.

Harry happy to be back horse riding

• By Natalie Pham

SIX YEARS ago, Harry

Priestley got frustrated and

walked away from his horse

riding programme.

However, the 11-year-old has

marked his second participation

in a dressage event at the

Christchurch equestrian centre

in late September.

Harry was among 10 riders

of varying ages and disabilities

taking part in the event organised

by Christchurch Riding for

the Disabled.

Because the event focused on

the rider achieving the goal of

completing the test and getting

marked on the completion, each

participant received a certificate

and a score sheet.

Said CHCHRDA president

Philippa Parker: “We make it as

fun and relaxed as possible.”

All participants have been

attending weekly sessions prior

to the event, with each session

tailoring to their specific needs

and personal goals.

Harry was diagnosed with

autism when he was three.

Said his mother Rachel: “For

Harry and the way that his

brain works, it’s about what

Harry wants and what Harry

needs. But as humans, we need

to learn how to work with other

people.”

Harry is enrolled in two

programmes – education and

sport and recreation, where he

gets to learn about horse riding

and challenges himself with

exercises require teamwork.

“Everyone has helped me in

all different ways,” he said.

“I used to get really, really angry

but now I don’t get angry at

all. Well, I’m better at managing

my anger than I used to.”

The organisation also offers a

therapy programme for riders

who have higher support needs,

ranging from building muscle

strength to improving walking

ability.

Harry began the riding sessions

with New Zealand Riding

for the Disabled at five-yearsold.

However, his sessions have

been on and off due to high

demands.

Like many riders, he started

with a small pony and worked

his way up. After many years, he

is finally paired with Zeus – a

‘big and tall’ horse.

When Harry first walked in

with his new horse, Parker said

he looked proud of himself.

“Zeus challenges Harry to

work with it. That horse can

be independent if it wants to,

so Harry has to make sure that

the horse is listening to the

instruction.”

GOAL: Harry

Priestley marked

his second

participation in a

dressage event at

Christchurch Riding

for the Disabled

in September. He

was proud when he

finally got paired up

with his new horse

Zeus (left).

Term 3 Update

Principal’s Message

What a busy term it has been!

Term three has seen learners participating

in a wide variety of activities including

Exhibition Night, Rolleston X Factor,

Tournament Week and the Senior Film

Festival.

Our Yr 10 learners have been busy piloting

the Literacy and Numeracy exams. The

idea of a pilot is to provide data, give

feedback and to iron out issues and make

modifications. The school’s participation

contributes valuable feedback to the

Ministry of Education and NZQA to ensure

that exams are pitched at the correct level

before they are launched nationwide.

Senior learners have been busy with mock

exams which provide an opportunity to

practice under exam conditions for the

NCEA exams in

November and

we have been

impressed

by the efforts

of our senior

learners in

their approach

to these exams.

Progress continues

both on the extension to the current

campus and on the new campus and

we are planning to hold another series

of meetings in term 4 to present back

on progress made. There are certainly

some very exciting things on the horizon

that we look forward to sharing with our

community in term 4.

Rachel Skelton, Principal

Police vs

Student day

We had a great day hosting

the Selwyn Police in 5 different

events for the now annual

Selwyn Police Vs Students

day. These events were Touch

Rugby, Basketball, Netball,

debating and a “chase” styled

quiz. The students took it out

3 - 2 with wins in all 3 sports

while the Police won both the

quiz and the debate. A massive

thanks to Officer Glenn

Dawson who helped organise

the event with school.

AN EVENT showcasing

British-made cars has been

held to commemorate the

reign of Queen Elizabeth

II.

The line-up included a

1981 Ford Cortina 2.0L

owned by West Melton’s

Zac Haywood.

The car was purchased

new by Haywood’s greatgrandfather,

Aleck Blank,

of Yaldhurst, and restored

by Haywood after it had

been left unused, parked in

a shed for years.

The display was organised

by Trevor Stanley-

Joblin, of Amberley, and

it was held at his Spring

Classic Car gathering at

Leithfield’s Better Half

Kitchen and Bar.

‘‘It was a special, one-off

event, to commemorate

the Queen,’’ Trevor says.

‘‘I asked drivers of

all British vehicles,

irrespective of being classic

or not, to attend. We had

106 classic cars in total and

around 50 of those were

British,’’

The show also included

two Triumphs owned by

a Christchurch father and

son.

Community funding available

Groups planning an activity or event that will help make Selwyn

an even better place to live, work and play are being encouraged to

apply for the Council’s Selwyn Community Fund.

The Selwyn Community Fund supports initiatives that contribute

to community wellbeing, bring communities together and attract

visitors to the district. Applications for the second round of funding

are open until Monday 31 October.

Since establishing in 2018, the fund has supported a range of

sports, arts and music events, groups or activities that benefit

the district.

Rolleston Brass, a community-based band, is one of these groups.

Last few days – get your

votes in and have your say

Voters in Selwyn’s local elections have just a few days left to get their votes in.

The deadline for voting is 12 midday this Saturday, 8 October – and all votes must be in the

Council’s hands by then to be counted.

The best option this week is to drop voting papers into a Council ballot box. These are

available all week at the Council’s Rolleston offices, libraries and most Council facilities, right

up to 12 midday on Saturday.

Anyone who hasn’t received voting papers, or who has moved since they last enrolled, can

apply for a special vote by contacting the Council on 0800 SELWYN (735 996) or email

electoral.officer@selwyn.govt.nz.

Voters can also apply for a special vote at the Council offices, Darfield, Leeston and Lincoln

libraries, and at Te Ara Ātea, during open hours.

“There’s still time to vote, and we’re hoping to see more people getting their votes in over the

next few days to have their say,” says deputy electoral officer Stephen Hill.

“Voting is an important way residents can help shape Selwyn’s future. The people you vote

for have a major say on how local services are planned and funded, and where the district’s

priorities should be over the coming three years.”

Initial results for the Selwyn elections are expected to be available on the Council website

from mid-afternoon on Saturday, 8 October.

For more details on the elections, including candidate profiles and special voting information,

visit our elections pages at selwyn.govt.nz/elections.

Band Manager Leigh Martin says the fund made it possible to hire a

space at Rolleston School for the group’s weekly rehearsals.

“We try to offer music at a reasonable cost for people, so the grant

was really helpful in covering our room hire.

“We were quite fortunate to get into the Rolleston School. Many of

our players are based in Rolleston, so it’s a perfect location for us.”

Since establishing two years ago, Rolleston Brass has grown

significantly, welcoming all ages to play and compete in

competitions. The band has already competed in three competitions

around the country, and also perform locally.

“Being able to grow and provide something like this in our

district is very satisfying,” Leigh says. “The Council has been

really supportive.”

Selwyn’s diversity celebrated at CultureFest

The tastes, music, dance and customs of Selwyn’s many cultures came together in a wonderful

CultureFest celebration last month from 10-25 September.

The festivities kicked off with an exciting day of

performances, food and activities at Lincoln Domain on

Sunday 11 September. A crowd of 3,000 festival-goers was

treated to an array of delicious food stalls, and 12 ‘have a go’

activities including Brazilian Jujitsu, Latin fire dance, Muay

Thai kick boxing, and traditional Filipino street games. On

the main stage, Polish folk dancing, kapa haka, West African

drumming and a Bangladesh fashion show were some of

the 21 performances to entertain the crowds.

The festivities continued over the two weeks with 26

activities and events held around the district.

A Women’s Only night at the Selwyn Aquatic Centre was

a big hit, as around 100 women came to learn about water

safety and participate in an aqua fitness class.

Twenty-six people sharpened their culinary skills at an

Austrian sauerkraut and bratwurst workshop. Scottish

dance, an intro to Bollywood dancing, Budo skills, a

volunteer planting day, and an exhibition on immigrant journeys to Aotearoa were among the

many other activities residents and visitors enjoyed across the festival.

Group Manager Community Services and Facilities Denise Kidd says there was a real sense of

pride and community across the festival.

“It was wonderful to see people being so eager and excited to share their culture and customs

with each other. They were really leading the experiences and offering a variety of ways for

people to enjoy their cultures, which I think enhanced the festival even more. Thank you to all of

the groups and contributors who helped make this year’s celebrations such a success.”

The Council is already beginning preparations for CultureFest 2023, with plans to build on the

popularity of the interactive activities.

Protect your bike from theft with

529 Garage

Selwyn residents wanting to deter potential bike thieves or help find

their bike if it is stolen are being encouraged to register their bike

with the free 529 Garage service.

Canterbury Police have teamed up with the community-powered

bike recovery initiative in a bid to curb bike thefts and reunite

owners with their stolen property. It follows a costly year for owners

in 2021, with more than $2 million worth of bikes pinched and an

average of four bikes a day reported stolen to Canterbury Police.

The 529 Garage service works by recording a bike’s details,

including serial numbers, photos and identifying features. This

makes it easy for Police to identify stolen bikes and return them to

their rightful owners.

Once registered, owners can obtain a unique code on a tamperresistant

shield to stick on their bike, which acts as a warning to

would-be thieves that the bike is registered. Potential buyers can

also search the database to check if a secondhand bike they’re

looking at has been flagged as stolen.

If stolen, bike owners can update the 529 Garage app, and a

notification is sent to the local 529 Garage community, advising

them to keep an eye out for the bike.

The initiative is a collaboration between Canterbury Police, Project

529, and Christchurch City Council, with Auckland and Wellington

also participating.

The 529 Garage app can be downloaded for free from the App Store

and Google Play.

Once registered, tamper-resistant shields can be obtained from

Christchurch City Council or from several Christchurch bike stores.

Visit the Christchurch City Council website ccc.govt.nz for

more information.

Milestone reached for Hororātā community hub

The Council and the Hororātā Community Trust have signed a Memorandum of Understanding

(MOU) around the creation of a community hub in the township.

Mayor Sam Broughton signed the MOU last week confirming the Council will transfer the

Hororātā Community Hall and surrounding endowment land to the Trust, along with a grant of $1

million to support the trust in building the new community hub.

The Council has been working with the Hororātā community and with the Trust for a number

of years, with a view to building a new community facility for the township, and the MOU is an

important stage in that process, Council Chief Executive David Ward says.

“The Council is excited to have this agreement in place, and confirm its support for the Trust to

get the community facility built. A lot of hard work has gone into this from all sides to ensure

Hororātā receives a facility that meets its needs now and into the future, and this is a positive step

towards seeing that completed.”

Hororata Community Trust Trustee Richard Lang said it was an important day for the Hororātā

community. "We are looking forward to developing a vibrant community hub which will feature

our areas heritage and celebrate our stories."

RACING 35

Purdon perplexed after strange night

• By Michael Guerin

BLOOD TESTS could shed

some light on just why punters

got such a bleeding nose at

Addington on Friday night.

Top trainer

Mark Purdon

will have

bloods taken

from several

of his team

after a rollercoaster

night

Mark Purdon

last Friday,

which most

expensively

saw Akuta beaten in the Lazarus

Stakes at $1.20.

It was a strange night for

punters with Akuta’s defeat

followed up by both Muscle

Mountain and Sundees Son

galloping in the main trot and

several other favourites underperforming.

The two superstar trotters

galloping, while costly, is at

least easy enough for punters to

understand but Akuta sitting in

the one-one and not running

past a horse back in three-yearold

company was a real head

scratcher.

“He was disappointing,” Purdon

said.

“I know they were running

fast times off the front and the

winner (Republican Party) is a

good horse but we still didn’t

run past anything.

“So I am suspicious the team

might have a bug. There was

no sign of anything before they

raced and their work had been

good but usually when they have

a virus they might have a cough

after the race.

“That was the case with Akuta

and couple of others so we will

take bloods off them on Tuesday

and know more when we get

those results back.”

Purdon says Akuta’s defeat will

not play into his eventual decision

whether to start in the IRT

NZ Cup or not.

“First thing first we will get

him checked out and see if needs

to be treated and then his next

aim is the Three-Year-Old Flying

Stakes at Addington on October

14.

“Then, all going well, he would

probably go to the Ashburton

Flying Stakes against some of the

best ones and if he does that, that

is when we will decide about the

New Zealand Cup.

CHECKS:

Blood tests

will reveal

if Akuta is

carrying a

bug.

“But just because he got

beaten last Friday doesn’t change

anything, he still has the same

ability.”

Purdon said the Addington

track felt fair and even on Friday

night, dispelling thoughts the inside

may have been faster, which

would only really be the case if

the track was graded unevenly

and was deeper wider.

“I think the fact the leaders

were running such fast times and

maybe a virus going around were

factors, while the spring growth

(grass) is really coming through

now and some of the horses may

be doing a little too well because

of that.”

Purdon was pleased with both

Spankem and Self Assured’s

placings behind B D Joe in the

Canterbury Classic and they

could even head to the Methven

Cup this Sunday.

Among those who is likely

to meet them there is Alta

Wiseguy as trainers Steve

and Amanda Telfer look to

continue their great start to the

NZ Cup campaigns of he and B

D Joe.

“Alta Wiseguy will go to Methven

but B D Joe will wait and he

could even return to Addington

on the 14th and then Ashburton,”

says Telfer.

While the superstar trotter’s

defeats will mean little to their

eventual chances Dominion

there was already a market

move pre-race that saw Bolt For

Brilliance, who resumes

at Alexandra Park this Friday,

join Sundees Son as joint favourite.

“We hadn’t been taking a lot

of money for Sundees Son

and we really liked Bolt

For Brilliance’s workout

performance against the pacers

at Pukekohe so we rate them

equal chances now,” said TAB

bookmaker Matt Peden.

GARDENING

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Get seedlings started now under cover

IN WARMER districts, where no

more frosts are expected, runner

and butter beans can be sown. In

most gardens, it is better to delay

growing these tender vegetables

outdoors and to get seed started

under cover. This is also true of

sweet corn and outdoor tomatoes.

From the time they germinate,

runner beans, such as Scarlet

Runner, take 90 days to mature,

while dwarf or butter beans will

produce crops in 60 days. The

latter are generally recommended

for smaller gardens, but a few

runner beans can be grown

anywhere they can climb.

If sowing them in their

permanent position, put runner

bean seeds about 5cm apart

around a bean teepee or against

the netting or trellis they are to

climb.

Pinching out the tips to make

bushier plants is a waste of

effort, as it reduces the crop. Like

climbing types, butter bean seeds

should be set 5cm apart, with

60cm between rows.

Plant out cabbages, cauliflower,

lettuces, parsley and silverbeet,

and check that autumn-sown

broad beans have adequate

support.

Sow spinach and orach where

they are to mature. Orach, or

red mountain spinach, is a lowgrowing,

purple-leaved vegetable

cooked like spinach.

Sow white turnips, spring

onions and quick-maturing mini

beetroot, such as Bonny Baby.

Small beetroot plants can be

transplanted to fill gaps.

Main-crop beetroot can be

sown next month.

Turnips and beetroot should

not be grown in soil where traces

of animal manure remain, as this

causes the roots to fork. Maincrop

potatoes Rua, Moonlight,

Red Rascal (the improved form

of Desiree), Red King, Heather,

Iwa and Agria, for example, can

be planted now in areas that

experience hot summers. In

cooler districts, wait until next

month.

Flowers

Many spring-flowering shrubs

are pruned as soon as they have

finished blooming. This is so the

plants can make new growth over

summer and autumn, as it is on

this new wood that they flower

next season.

Clematis (right), which has its

peak flowering next month, is

often left to grow unchecked but

most types can be pruned hard

after flowering. Cut C. montana

to 1m above ground, leaving only

a main stem with two to four

buds to develop.

Rhododendrons and azaleas

can still be planted. They are

shallow-rooted, with fibrous roots

close to the surface, making them

easy to transplant. Set the shrubs

with the highest roots just 2cm to

3cm below the soil surface.

Adequate moisture is vital to

this group, so mulch around the

roots with rotted autumn leaves,

pine needles or old sawdust from

wood that is not tanalised. Being

woodland plants, rhododendrons

and azaleas need an acid soil, so

never apply lime.

Azaleas come in two types –

evergreen and deciduous – and

the latter have colourful autumn

foliage in orange or red. Winter

roses (Helleborus) can be divided

this month. They do better

in semishade rather than full

shade, and can be boosted with

leaf mould or well-rotted cow

manure.

Lawns can be planted or

renewed now. Rake any bare

patches to give a slightly rough

surface, then scatter with a lawn

grass mix – usually chewings

fescue and browntop seed in a

2:1 ratio – then cover with fine

soil and press down lightly. Water

HELPING HAND:

In early spring

it’s best to get

seeds, such as

beans, started

under cover.

Below: Prune

spring-flowering

shrubs as

soon as they

have finished

blooming.

PHOTOS: ODT

if the soil is dry, then cover with

netting to stop birds eating the

seed.

Fruit

Grafting of apples, pears and

other fruit trees is usually done

this month. This is an important

way of saving heritage fruit trees,

and courses on how to graft trees

are run each season by specialinterest

groups.

Raspberries put in over winter

should be cut back to 30cm

above the ground to encourage

new stems (canes) to grow over

summer for a better crop next

year.

This treatment is also

recommended for blackberries,

tayberries, boysenberries,

loganberries and marionberries.

New blackcurrant bushes

should be pruned to about 25cm

above the ground, but red and

white currants need only to have

last season’s growth trimmed

by about half. This growth is

identified by its lighter bark.

Gooseberries are pruned in the

same way as red currants.

IF YOU’VE got an area

in your garden where you

want to create a mass of

colour, you can’t go past

petunias.

They are prolific bloomers

that, if looked after,

will continue to flower all

summer.

You can choose from

plain purple, red, pink or

white. How about purple

with dashes of white like on

the primetime violet star?

Or the duo red and white

variety which, like the

name suggests, produces

a beautiful mixture of red

and white flower?

GARDENING 39

PROLIFIC: Try a mixed petunia bundle to give a myriad of colour.

Bedding flowers will give

you beautiful blooms

Not sure what colour to

select? Then try a mixed

bundle.

Don’t have a big garden

to fill with bedding flowers?

Don’t worry about that

either. All petunias really

need to flourish is a sunny,

free-draining spot. They

grow equally as well in pots

and hanging baskets making

them perfect for just

about any garden.

Once you’ve selected

your seedlings and sunny

spot to plant, simply dig

small holes, around 3cm

deep and 25cm apart, and

plant.

Be sure to watch out for

slugs. It also pays to keep

an eye out for aphids. If you

spot these pesky pests, a

general insecticide or spray

of organic alternative, neem

oil will sort that problem.

And make sure to keep

them watered. If you’re not

sure how thirsty they are,

stick your finger in the soil

2cm deep. If the soil is dry,

they will need a drink.

Then sit back and wait

just four to six weeks for

your beautiful petunias to

bloom. Remember to pick

off dead heads to encourage

re-flowering.

ARA INSTITUTE OF CANTERBURY

Pasifika mum shows

how it’s done

Not so long ago, Epe Valavala was a

full-time, stay-at-home mum. Now, she’s

the proud recipient of a business degree

specialising in human resources and on a

mission to get more Pacific people into the

corporate world.

Epe’s accomplishment provides an

inspirational example — for her family, the

Pasifika community and mature students —

of what’s possible through study.

When Epe first visited Ara Institute

of Canterbury to enquire about its

study options, she literally had a baby

on her hip and needed to know if study

would fit around her lengthy list of daily

responsibilities. “I found out that the

scheduling at Ara worked perfectly for me

as a parent and I wouldn’t need to try to

attend one-hour, lecture-style classes,” she

says.

Epe admits that she was apprehensive

about the thought of being a mature student

among lots of young adults but discovered

she needn’t have worried. “The smaller

class sizes and the atmosphere at Ara let me

contribute my practical life experience to

the mix.”

Epe’s study experience was a revelation

in many ways. “From the classroom

experience to group work, presentations

and sleepless nights, it’s showed me my

worth, my capability and reminded me

of my purpose in life and the many great

things I want to achieve.”

One of those things is diving deeper

into human resources. “I want to be

able to weave in some more cultural and

sustainable practices because I believe if

Wednesday October 5 2022 Selwyn Times

those things are taught at your workplace,

they change the way you work, your

homelife and the way you teach your

children.”

Ultimately, Epe wants see more Pasifika

people in corporate roles. “Seeing more

people who look like us in the corporate

world will encourage others to get

into business and it will increase our

independence. It will also open more

doors for our people. That’s why I chose to

study business, and to specialise in human

resources.”

Epe “100%” encourages all single mums

out there to make the sacrifices needed

to study. “It’s hard work, but with a bit of

dedication it can be done, and at Ara you’re

surrounded by the right people, and you’re

well supported.”

Farmers still stuck in

connectivity slow land

Coverage, reliability and speed of mobile and

internet services for many farming families and

businesses are treading water, if not going backwards,

the 2022 Federated Farmers Rural Connectivity

Survey shows.

More than half of the nearly 1,200 farmers who

responded to the survey report internet download

speeds at or less than what could be considered a

bare minimum (20 megabytes per second/Mbps)

and those who said their mobile phone service had

declined in the last 12 months jumped from 20% to

32%.

“For a sector that underpins the lion’s share of

New Zealand’s export earnings, and one where

productivity gains and reporting requirements

are increasingly aligned with used of technology,

apps and devices, this is really concerning,”

Federated Farmers national board member and

telecommunications spokesperson Richard McIntyre

said.

“It’s a given that it’s easier and more profitable to

deliver high standards of mobile and broadband to

urban areas. But rural families and farm businesses

- who due to remoteness and road travel times can

really benefit from strong on-line connectivity access

- must not be left behind.”

The survey showed a continuing trend of farmers

moving to wireless broadband (now 52%) and,

despite the expense, satellite services (19%) as old

copper lines fail to deliver on speed and reliability.

“But we saw a greater number of farmers remark

that the quality and reliability of their internet

connections had deteriorated as local network

infrastructure had become over-subscribed, either by

increased numbers of users or increased demand by

those users,” McIntyre said.

A similar issue is happening with mobile phone

services.

“When a third of rural users are saying mobile

connectivity has declined in the last year, it points to

severe reliability issues.”

Nearly 69 percent of respondents reported problems

with calls dropping out, an inability to make and

receive calls or send and receive text messages even

when they have two signal bars on their cellphone.

For many, the decline in mobile services meant they

were no longer able to rely on mobile broadband

as a back-up for those times where their internet

connection to the farm is disrupted. For others, it

appears nearby mobile towers have become incapable

of handing voice calls and mobile data as they have

become overburdened by more people making

greater use of the same towers.

“This is an issue Federated Farmers raised with

government following our 2020 and 2019 surveys

and we acknowledge that of $60 million earmarked

for rural telecommunications in this year’s Budget,

some $45m is dedicated to upgrading or adding

towers,” McIntyre said.

“This work can’t happen too soon.”

THERE’S A BATTLE raging

in the new car market that

I’m very interested in, and it’s

not just about the total sales

figures.

You see, there’s a battle

within a battle and it is in the

fully electric vehicle segment,

those companies that have

EVs are fighting amongst

each other for market share.

Of course, the winners will

always be the companies that

have affordable cars for the

mainstream – Peugeot, MG

and newcomer BYD will fall

into that category.

However, you can’t

discount the models landing

here from South Korea,

Hyundai and Kia are both

well established in the EV

market and new models are

landing on a regular basis.

Kia has just introduced a

newcomer and it is simply

badged EV6, it’s part of a

series of models that will

cover a broad spectrum of

the EV market. The EV6 isn’t

mainstream, its price tag

from $72,990 won’t lure Joe

Average, in fact the rangetopping

EV6 is priced at

$109,990. However, if you are

determined to buy into the

EV6 there are two variants

that list from under $80k,

and that will net you a $5750

New Zealand Government

Clean Car Programme

rebate. The remaining three

models in the line-up are

priced at $78,990, $94,990

and $106,990.

That’s quite an extensive

range, and if you are

wondering where the cost

differences lie, the two

entry models have battery

capacities of 58kW and

77.4kW respectively and are

rear-wheel-drive only, the

rest have the high power

batteries and have drive to all

four corners, the four-wheeldrive

models utilising two

electric motors.

The EV6 can be described

as a crossover between sedan

and a sport utility vehicle,

its design is spherical and

all enveloping, much like a

sedan, but with its height of

1.5m it is tall and fits the SUV

bracket.

All models have five seats

only, but they share a wealth

of internal space and comfort

is high. The EV6 is also

minimalistic in its layout.

Don’t get me wrong, it has

a wealth of specification,

yet it’s all manipulated by

simple dial and push-button

controls, you may expect

there to be a lot of functions,

but many of those that

would ordinarily be guided

by switches can be made

electronically through one of

the central display screens.

The EV6 has a high graphic

percentage, and the logic

behind the touch surfaces is

deep yet intuitive.

I find it interesting that

both Kia and Hyundai offer

the varying power supplies

for their flagship electric

KIA EV6: Range of electric models that include

rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive. Prices start at

$72,990

models, the difference is not

just extra power on tap, but

the high output versions will

take you further.

The evaluation car was

the range-topper, and it

is good for almost 500km

driving distance if conditions

are conducive to load-free

motoring. If you feel more

comfortable topping up

along the way the EV6 will

recharge from 10 to 80 per

cent in around 18min using a

designated charge port.

• Price – Kia EV6 GT-

Line AWD, $112,990

• Dimensions –

Length, 4635mm;

width, 1890mm;

height, 1605mm

• Configuration

– Two electric

motors, four-wheeldrive,

225kW,

605Nm, automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 5.2sec

My charging experience

consisted only of using

the domestic supply on

my property. Under those

conditions the charge time is

quite lengthy – an overnight

charge will only net you a

half tank, so to speak. On a

more positive note, I used the

EV6 as many drivers would,

when parked up hook into

the household supply and

just let it continually top up.

If found that on a standard

suburb to city commute it

was more than adequate to

keep range plentiful.

What’s more, it comes with

decent charge cable length

– almost 6m which meant

it was long enough for my

unique situation. The type

2 to type 2 cable (the one

for accessing charge ports)

is also quite lengthy, which

means you don’t have to get

too close to the structure

and risk bumping into it like

I saw just recently when a

driver of a Tesla got too close.

As you would expect, the

EV6 drives smoothly and

quietly, there are minor

extraneous noises such as

wind and a slight roar off the

big tyres (255/45 x 20in), but

its movement is very hushed

and I guess that’s what you

would want and expect when

buying an electric vehicle.

Along with a lot of innercity

running around, I took

the evaluation car west

towards Darfield, returning

via Burnham and Lincoln. It is

an adept highway cruiser, it’s

also very swift with a standstill

to 100km time of 5.2sec,

and it will lunge through a

highway overtake in 4.2sec

(80-120km/h). Those figures

come from the benefit of huge

power figures – 225kW and

over 600Nm of torque.

Not only is the massive

amount of torque something

that supplies that urgency,

the EV6 also drives like a

sports car. It is firmish in the

suspension which always

augurs well when quick

corners are presented.

The steering loads up

to provide solid off-centre

support with plenty of

feedback coming off the

front tyres. That’s the kind

of feel I like, the EV6 is fully

involving and covers distance

like a sports car. That is one

of the benefits of electric

power, there’s no point

anywhere where acceleration

isn’t met with urgency. Of

course, you don’t have to

drive the EV6 in sport mode,

it’s also happy plying the city

commute or every other dayto-day

dawdle.

There’s no doubt Kia is

keen to impress with its

electric-only line-up. The EV6

is futuristic, yet it carries the

electric vehicle ingredients

that will lure those who don’t

see fossil fuel in the future of

personal transport. How it all

plays out is something that I’ll

continue to keep an eye on,

and it’s interesting how the

raft of new EVs are pitched

in terms of price, many are

sitting just below the 80k

threshold whereby owners

can capitalise on the rebate.

We are certainly in for

some exciting times ahead,

and Kia will no doubt be

a big part of how future

direction shapes up.

SELWYN DISTRICT PLANS

Notice of insertion of housing bottom

lines to Selwyn district plans

At its meeting on 14 September 2022, the Selwyn District Council resolved to amend

the Operative Selwyn District Plan and Proposed Selwyn District Plan to incorporate

“housing bottom lines” in accordance with clause 3.6 of the National Policy Statement

on Urban Development 2020 (NPS-UD). Specifically, Section Objective B4.3.9 of the

Operative District Plan and UG-P13 of the Proposed District Plan have been amended.

The housing bottom lines represent the additional development capacity over the shortmedium

(2021-2031) and long term (2031-2051) that must be enabled by the district

plans to meet expected housing demand in the Selwyn district.

The housing bottom lines replace the previous minimum targets, which were inserted

under the National Policy Statement on Urban Development Capacity 2016.

Clause 3.6(4) of the NPS-UD requires the housing bottom lines to be inserted into the

district plans without using a process in Schedule 1 of the Resource Management Act

1991 (RMA) (this means submissions cannot be made on these amendments).

The amendments to the Operative and Proposed Plans have been made under section

55(3) of the RMA.

The amendments are effective from the date of this notice (5 October 2022).

The Operative and Proposed District plans can be viewed on the Council’s website at

www.selwyn.govt.nz.

The full text of the decision can be read online at www.selwyn.govt.nz/publicnotices.

Looking for a Property?

What really counts

You are in the market for a new property,

scrolling the Internet, examining

properties for sale and zeroing in on those

with potential. They might be in locations

that offer cheaper land, larger houses, or

convenience to work or school. You may

have visited show homes and open homes

becoming confused, overwhelmed or

swept away with emotional factors like

having everything new, or extra features

such as three car garaging.

To be happy with your choice, list the

features that you need, considering:

• Family space – Is there room for

the children to play indoors and for

television and entertainment units?

Should this be open plan or separated?

• Kitchen – What needs to be in your

kitchen? How serious are you about

a butler’s pantry? Is it a whim or

something that offers a practical solution

to the way you use your kitchen?

• Bedroom sizes – What are optimum

sizes? Smaller bedrooms may translate

to slightly lower building costs while

extra space can be useful. When looking

at existing homes, consider whether the

size of each bedroom is sufficient.

• Garaging – A standard double garage

once two cars are parked there offers

little space for the toys. What toys

do you have and could they live with

the lawnmower in a garden shed, a

cheaper option to three car garaging?

If the budget allows and a larger garage

with workshop is important, make it a

selection priority.

• Size of land – Lifestyle properties offer

space for children, pets, hobbies, an

expansive garden and perhaps a homerun

business but they require work so

are not for everyone and a compact

section might be more sensible if a tight

budget or busy lifestyle.

• Bathrooms – Second and third

bathrooms are great in homes with

teenagers and a wet shower room is

ideal for young children. A bath might

be fashionable though is often not used

and its absence could mean a more

spacious bathroom.

• Laundry – Would a laundry in the

garage do the job?

• Storage – How much storage do you

need? Weigh up what can truly be

stored in the garage once vehicles are

in, a preference in winter. Garages vary

in size so check the size to ensure your

vehicles will fit. Look also at where

else the house offers storage capacity

such as in hall cupboards, a large hot

water cylinder cupboard, wardrobes

(check their width and depth), walkin

robe, attic storage trusses, as well as

the potential for hooks and shelving

in the garage for bikes, tools, garden

equipment and even kayaks.

• Off-street parking – How many

vehicles can be parked on the driveway?

Will this space be sufficient?

• Garden - Is there sufficient space

for your children to play or for

entertaining?

A checklist will allow you to determine

what will suit your needs, the point of

the exercise, saving you time looking at

properties or potential house designs

while assisting you to decide whether

to buy a new or existing home with

both options having advantages and

disadvantages.

West Melton 25 Fairmont Rise

Where memories are made and dreams are fulfilled

The substantial 355sqm floor plan has been designed to impress and yet be practical for everyday family living.

Appreciate the natural warmth of the engineered Oak flooring, the ease of meal preparation in the up-to-the-minute

kitchen, which has both stone and stainless steel counter tops, Bosch appliances and a butler's pantry. The bedroom

configuration is a winner, with bedrooms two and three boasting their own walk-in robes, a dual access ensuite and

individual heat pumps. The master suite also has its own heat pump and an enviable wall-to-wall tiled shower in the

ensuite. Triple car garage with an extra-length bay for boat storage, attic access, 2.85m stud ceilings and 2.45m

doors with a drive-through. But wait there's more...family and friends can spend time together making memories in

the heated pool or playing out on the large fully-irrigated lawn of the fabulous 2,041sqm section.

Buying a lifestyle block

27

City life getting you down? Dreaming of

living in the country, where you ‘commute’

from the breakfast table to a barn or your

home office? It might look like an easy life

but buying a lifestyle property can be a

complex business.

While living in the country has much

to recommend it, you need to do more

preparation for buying a place there than

buying a pair of gumboots and comparing

the merits of ride-on mowers.

We recommend comprehensive due

diligence when buying any kind of property,

but rural ones come with a whole extra set

of things to think about compared to buying

a straightforward stand-alone home in

town”.

While it’s tempting to focus on the dream

wish list for your bucolic bolt-hole, but you

should also compile a list of issues to be

aware of (and people who can help you learn

about them).

“If the property you like is being sold by

a licensed real estate agent, remember that

you can ask them anything you like about it”.

“Rural real estate agents have special

skills in this area and they’ll be able to help

you figure out what information you need

to make a well-informed decision. It’s also

a good idea to get your lawyer onboard

early to check titles, consents and other

information that you gather in the process.”

It might feel like you’re getting away from

it all when moving out of town, but rural

developments can be subject to rules that

restrict what you can do. REA recommends

getting your lawyer to check if there are any

covenants on the property that might have

an impact on a future business you may

run there, or any planned building projects.

You don’t want to invest in an alpaca herd

for your new dream property only to find

that it’s not allowed to carry any livestock.

Similarly, it would be tough to discover that

your subdivision plans are not permitted by

council rules.

Be aware that there may be tax

implications if you’re planning to use the

property as a business.

“In general, if it is currently being used for

a business that is tax-registered – whether

that’s selling organic eggs, grazing stock

or running a B&B – then the seller will

probably add GST to the price. This means

you’ll pay an extra 15 per cent, unless you

are also registered for GST. Ask your lawyer

or accountant to check if the house or any

other buildings on the property are GSTexempt.

They will also be able to advise you

on whether you need to be GST-registered.”

A good place to start when trying to

figure out what tax obligations might

attach to your purchase of the property

is Inland Revenue’s property tax decision

tree (available at http://www.ird.govt.

nz/property/property-terms-and-tools/

property-decision-tree/), but keep in mind

that it is always best to seek professional

advice before you make a decision.

Rural properties (like all properties) can

also have easements on the title that relate to

access, water or power. You should ask your

lawyer to check the title and work out what

the easements are, and how they will have an

impact on your rights and responsibilities as

an owner.

“For example, if the title allows a

neighbour access to a piece of their land

through your property, do you have any

right to limit the type and frequency of that

access if you buy it?”

Be aware too that there may be ‘unofficial’

easements operating; the incumbent

owners may have an informal arrangement

with their neighbours, but this may not

remain when the property passes into new

ownership.

Things that we take for granted when

living in urban environments, like water,

sewage and access, can require more

involvement in rural areas. Check the water

sources for the property – if it has its own

bore, are there limits on the amount of

water you can draw from it? What is the

process for ensuring it is safe to drink? What

happens to wastewater and sewage? Are you

prepared for life with a septic tank? Will the

current owner ensure the tank is empty as a

condition of sale?

When it comes to access, will you

share a private road or right of way with

other properties? What will be your

responsibilities and potential costs for

maintaining it? Don’t forget that your

neighbours may be involved in unglamorous

activities at ungodly hours – check the

zoning rules for nearby properties if you’re

worried about noise, smells or traffic. You

might think it’s lovely to have stock grazing

out the window, but are you ready for a

milk tanker driving past every morning? Be

aware that the LIM will not always alert you

to any pending or current NZTA decisions

regarding local highway linkages that often

divert traffic away from urban centres in

favour of immediate rural areas on the town

boundary. Check with NZTA if you think

your property could be affected by road

changes.

Like all property purchases, buying a place

in the country requires careful, objective

consideration.

“There are lots of great things about

living on the land, but it’s best to be realistic

about it. You don’t want to be like the

former townie I met a few weeks ago, who

mournfully told me that their lifestyle

block had become “a life sentence”. Do your

homework and you’re far more likely to live

happily ever after in rural bliss.”

selling property, check out settled.govt.nz.

Extending

outdoor living

Rain and wind-proofing an outdoor space adds value

to a property. With a roof or clear vinyl sides, your

buyers can see an area where rain doesn’t stop play.

Thanks to blitz advertising, most

Kiwis have heard the name Archgola.

The company and others like it can add

canopies to decks, enclosing the space for

year-round use.

Undercover verandas, pergolas and

gazebos can be turned into living space

by adding side panels, which effectively

create a conservatory. Restaurants often

use these spaces, so there’s no reason why

home owners can’t as well.

Roll-down clear vinyl blinds are a

popular choice, which, if you’re lucky,

can be bought ready made from hardware

stores such as Bunnings and Mitre10. If

not, there are plenty of companies that

will custom manufacture to fit. Usually

these blinds zip into place and are stored

using a rope-and-pulley system.

Mounting your blinds is very simple.

Typically it involves screwing the

mountings into wood or installing a track

then fitting the blind.

Other options include roll-up shade

cloths or other gazebo or veranda sides,

such as canvas. These aren’t as windproof

as the vinyl blinds, meaning they’re not a

12-month solution.

If you don’t already have an outdoor

living space, building a pergola doesn’t

generally need planning permission..

Provided the pergola is less than 10 sq

m in size, it is usually okay to add a roof.

But a quick call to the council is a good

idea; never risk building an unpermitted

structure.

Another option for quick and easy rain

and windproof outdoor living is a pop-up

gazebo. These can be turned into dining

areas to give buyers a glimpse of what they

could do themselves.

It’s important to dress them so it doesn’t

look like you’ve just plonked a gazebo

on the lawn. Lights, plants, furniture

and even place settings can really give a

gazebo the Pinterest touch and bring it to

life as an outdoor entertaining hub for the

home.

The more you pay for pop-up gazebos,

the better UV protection of the fabric and

powder coating of the steel you get.

Heating the outdoor space also makes it

more usable. The cheap option is a patio

heater. Permanent gas, wood or pellet

fireplaces and fire pits are easier on the

eye and can make a design statement, allimportant

when selling a home.

For wind protection, it’s reasonably

simple to erect trellis and staple brush

sides to it or the existing fence.

Bamboo is particularly good for this

purpose, especially if you have access to a

free source - although you could also buy

it at all good hardware stores.

Dressing your property

up for sale

Your house is on the market and you hope to

get a good price. While market performance

will largely influence this, presenting your

home at its best will help.

First impressions count from

the moment potential buyers view

a property from the street to the

moment they walk through the front

door.

Weed the garden, cut back unruly

shrubs and prune trees where needed.

Kill off weeds in the lawn, sprinkle

grass seed over bald patches and

fertilise the lawn.

Indoors, tidy up. Get rid of excess

or bulky furniture, toys, books, hobby

items or fitness equipment and if too

many photos on the wall pack these

away so the home looks roomy.

If there is a gap or a room needs

enhancing, look at what you have. A

piece of furniture might be painted up

or an old leather bound book popped

on the coffee table. Shelves will also

add depth to a narrow space while

mirrors may give the illusion of a

larger space. In entryways, add an easy

chair, small table, bookcase or large

vase.

Awkward spaces such as coved

ceilings in attics or upstairs rooms

might be converted into storage

shelving and the room given a purpose

as an office, playroom or extra

bedroom so viewers can see how the

room might be used.

Stow possessions neatly in

containers, shelving or tidily in

cupboards; highlighting the storage

potential within the home, ensuring

it is clean and tidy for viewing at any

time.

Move the pets outside as not all

buyers will be pet lovers while some

may suffer pet allergies putting them

off a house if they see a pet inside.

If parts of the house look tired,

consider renovating by painting

walls, replacing worn carpet, or

modernising the kitchen, bathroom

and toilet; rooms that should sparkle.

Replace tired cabinetry, or the benches

and cupboard/drawer fronts then

update old toilets, showers or kitchen

appliances. Modernising these rooms

can lift the final selling price.

Use consistent and light paint

colours throughout for balance and

seamlessness, making the house

appear more spacious. An effect that

is increased when walls and curtains

share the same or a similar colour.

Consider the personality and

purpose of a room. Bright colours

lift living areas especially if large and

open. However, bedrooms are suited

to calmer softer colours with just a

touch of bold. Layer bedding or use

throws for effect along with cushions

or a stuffed toy in a children’s room.

With curtaining, smaller patterns or

plain fabrics are the rule for smaller

rooms whereas larger patterns make

spacious areas cosier. If blinds or

drapes are past their best, replace these

even if it is only with neutral cotton

curtains. The effect will be worth it.

Eco-friendly features will also add

value for some buyers though not

universally, however earthy natural

colours and features are popular.

Consider who your target buyers are

likely to be and what will appeal to

them.

Move the pets outside

as not all buyers will

be pet lovers while

some may suffer pet

allergies

Making the most of

show home viewing

Looking through show homes is a great way to get ideas for

features and fittings to put into a new home. It can also be helpful

for getting a spatial feel for other aspects of a house design.

[Edition datE] 1

Before heading out for a day’s

viewing, conduct an internet search.

identify the locations of show home

villages and the types and sizes of the

various building company’s homes on

display, noting down the square metre

size of each home.

if wanting a high end, architectural

design, focus on the larger homes that

have desirable design features. if at the

entry or middle level of the market,

earmark homes that fit this taking in

other show homes for extra ideas.

allow sufficient time when visiting each

show home, asking for a floor plan that

has room sizes before walking through.

Check also the floor to ceiling height

of the rooms and consider how this feels

and whether you prefer a cosier feel with

the standard ceiling eight of 2.4 metres or

more spaciousness created with a higher

stud or exposed ceiling beams.

if doors and windows are taller than

normal, weigh their effect in creating

a more luxurious and spacious feel,

against potential inconvenience for small

children, cleaning and maintenance.

on entering each room, take account of

how much furniture is in each room and

whether there is sufficient space for the

furniture you will have in the room and

the size needed in a walk-in robe. Look

too, at storage capacity throughout the

home and whether this is adequate.

in the living areas, consider whether a

lounge separated from the family living

room or a true open plan kitchen, dining,

living/lounge area is preferable, and

compare internal kitchens with those that

have natural light.

Look too at the layout of

the kitchen: whether to have

an island sink or breakfast

bar where a newspaper can

be read, and children can

sit and draw or complete

homework; the positioning

of appliances; and how

important having a pantry is.

for the little rooms, equate

space and features desired

with that needed, especially

if the budget needs to be

sharp. it might be nice to

have a large walk-in shower

with double shower heads

but is this just fanciful and

will the extra cleaning annoy you long

term. a laundry in the garage is also more

economical though a separate laundry

may be handier.

Bring the garage size into the equation

also. as these vary considerably, assess

the actual measurements of each garage

viewed comparing this with the space

SELLING YOUR HOME?

needed for your motor vehicles and other

items to be stored there. if a good number

of toys will be housed there, it may be

sensible to increase the size of this area of

the home.

By imagining what you need, want and

will have in your new home, you will be in

a better position to confidently choose a

design that works for you.

Potential buyers are

likely to be living in your

neighbourhood, it’s an

area that they already love

and are actively seeking

to stay in. That’s why it

makes sense to advertise

New building code update

for insulation

New Zealand homes have long been

under the spotlight for being cold,

damp and unhealthy. However, the

MBIE Building Code update from 3

November 2022 is working towards

rectifying this problem ensuring New

Zealand has safe, healthy and durable

buildings. These changes affect all

residential dwellings under 300m2.

MBIE states, “The building

code sets the minimum standard

for building compliance. This is

effectively the lowest standard that

can be legally built. Our homes and

buildings will need to perform better

to help meet long-term national net

zero carbon targets.” New Zealand’s

goal is to reach this target by 2050.

So, the Building for Climate Change

programme starts with reviewing the

roof, slab and window R-value (the

thermal resistance measure) of new

builds’ insulation and bringing them

up to international standards.

Windows represent the largest

source of heat loss in new homes. As a

result, Canterbury will need to reach

a minimum R-value of 0.37 for all

windows and doors by 3 November

2022, increasing to R0.50 by 1 May

2023. Prue McCaughan from Dark

Horse Building Ltd, based in Kirwee,

advises that you can still install

aluminium frames, but glass will

require argon gas between panes.

Additionally, as of 1 May 2023, they

will need to be in a thermally broken

aluminium or uPVC frame. As a

result, manufacturer numbers could

impact supply, and a cost increase of

30-40% may occur. Skylight size will

also be affected, reducing to no less

than 1.5 metres or 1.5% of the roof

area. However, greater insulation will

minimise cold airflow and help to

prevent condensation.

Roof insulation will also have

an increase in R-value. Currently,

Canterbury’s minimum insulation

is R3.3, increasing to R 6.6,

meaning a double insulation

thickness will be required.

Therefore, building costs will

increase due to the cost of

materials and labour costs for

installation.

Flooring currently has an

R-value of R1.3, with the slab

on the ground increasing

to R1.6, while other floors

(driven piles or floors with

underfloor heating) will

have a new R-value of R3.0.

Any new home buyers

would benefit from

submitting consents now

to save money. As Prue

suggests, the changes

will increase by an

estimated “$20,000

on 180sqm property,

mostly due to the

windows”. However, with

these updates, Prue says,” If

you are looking for a house to

build and live in for longevity,

you will save that money in

your heating costs, and overall

be better; it will just bring us

up to international standards,

which New Zealand needs to

do.”

As New Zealand heads

towards more passively heated

homes, the way we build our

houses will change. The upfront

costs may increase, but overall,

homes will be warmer, dryer,

healthier and cheaper to heat for

all New Zealanders.
