Big blaze on property where

gang shooting took place

• By Tina Grumball

SEVERE DAMAGE was caused

to a large shed on a property

where a gang-related shooting

took place two months ago.

The shed, believed to be a

workshop, at the Maddisons Rd

address caught fire at 9.50pm

on Sunday. Firefighters fought

to contain the blaze for nearly

three hours.

The cause of the fire was

still being investigated when

the Selwyn Times went to

publication.

Four fire trucks and four

tankers from around the region

were called to the blaze and

it was finally contained about

12.30am. A firefighter had to be

treated for heat exhaustion.

GONE: The fire completely destroyed the shed at the rear of the Maddisons Rd property and scorched the trees.

Crackdown

on illegal

parking

leads to

sharp rise

in tickets

• By Susan Sandys

A DISTRICT council crackdown

on illegal parking has seen 20

infringements issued across

Lincoln and Rolleston in a week.

Motorists have been fined for

parking in a prohibited area,

parking on a berm, parking on

broken yellow lines, parking

facing the wrong direction, not

displaying current registration,

not having a current vehicle

licence, and not having a warrant

of fitness.

The infringements were

predominantly issued on Springs

Rd, Lincoln, by the university

and building sites, and at a small

number of other residential areas

in Lincoln and Rolleston.

District council regulatory

manager Susan Atherton

said since the district council

signalled it would be stepping

up its enforcement of illegal

parking from September 19, it had

continued its approach of trying to

get matters resolved first and only

issuing tickets when that failed.

BE PREPARED to be asked

fairly soon to help pay for

the $683 million multi-use

stadium in Christchurch.

New Christchurch Mayor

Phil Mauger made his intentions

clear at the weekend –

he wants Selwyn and other

district councils to stump

up. He sees the stadium as a

regional one, not Christchurch’s

(see page 3).

There has been a fair bit

of debate for and against

Selwyn fronting up.

Rates are expected to go

up annually by an average

of six per cent over the next

several years. Given the

growth of the district and

the increasing cost of infrastructure,

that figure might

be conservative.

costs slowing it might

be a case of mentioning to

Mauger that Rolling Stones’

NEWLY-elected Christchurch

Mayor Phil Mauger says one of

his early goals is to get financial

commitment for the multi-use

stadium Te Kaha from Selwyn

and other Canterbury district

councils like Ashburton,

Waimakariri and Hurunui.

But he says

he is expecting

some resistance.

“We’ve got

to have a conversation

with

them – if you

don’t ask you

Phil Mauger never know,”

he told Stuff.

He said the stadium needed to

be approached as a Canterbury

facility.

Mauger said there would be

talks in the near future.

The central city stadium

has steadily blown out in cost

on the back of delays, design

changes and rapidly increasing

construction costs. It will be

used for sports matches and

concerts.

The Christchurch City Council

company set up to build it is

confident the current $683 million

price tag – a $150 million

blowout on its previous costings

– won’t rise further.

Selwyn Mayor Sam

Broughton, re-elected for his

third term on Saturday, said in

spite of Mauger’s comments, the

district council’s position had

not changed.

“We have not received

any formal requests for

funding, but if do receive

a request, then any contribution

from Selwyn

would have to be subject

to consultation with our

community, he said.

District councillors

canvassed by the Selwyn

Times in July were concerned

about the impact helping

to pay for the stadium would

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

have on ratepayers, who were

faced with an average rise of six

per cent over the next several

years.

Ratepayers would need

to be consulted on their

views in either the annual

or long term plans, they

believed.

Annual plans set rates

which mirrors what

the district council will

spend money on in any

given year, while long

term plans forecast

spending and development over

a 10 year period.

In July, district councillor

Nicole Reid said she would have

expected Selwyn would have

been consulted with on the

stadium before now if it was an

intention of Christchurch City

Council to request funding.

“We have already undertaken

our annual plan budget for this

financial year so if any stadium

funding request is received from

CCC, this would have to go

through next year’s annual plan

consultation with our community

for the 2023/2024 financial

year,” she said.

Time catches up with Woods;

• By Susan Sandys

“IT LOOKS like I’m past my

used-by date,” said 80-year-old

Bill Woods as he reflected on

losing out in the local body

elections.

Not only was Woods slammed

in the three-candidate mayoral

race, being the lowest polling

candidate with just 1876 votes,

he did not receive enough votes

for re-election to the Malvern

Community Board.

Incumbent Sam Broughton

will enter his third term as mayor

after winning with a 11,863 majority.

Newcomer Sean Ellis fills

the one vacancy in the Tawera

Community Subdivision of the

board, having won with 490

votes, compared to Woods’ 268

votes.

Woods said he felt neither

bitter nor sad about not being

able to return to the board, just

“possibly a little disappointed.”

“But nothing much, I have

been beaten that many times, it

doesn’t matter.”

He lost the mayoralty at

the 2019 election as well, but

received 4485 votes that time.

Woods has regularly stood

for mayor since serving in the

role from 1992 to 1995. His local

body service stretches back as far

Bill

Sam

Woods Broughton

as 1989 when he first became a

Selwyn District councillor.

The Springfield resident, who

was this year awarded a Queen’s

Service Medal in the Queen’s

Birthday Honours, said he was

proud of his many achievements

for the community within that

time. He now doubted he would

ever stand for election again.

Fellow mayoral hopeful Calvin

Payne was also slammed in the

mayoral race, with 3148 votes,

well behind winning candidate

Sam Broughton, who returns to

the role, having received 15,011

votes.

Broughton told the Selwyn

Times it was “very exciting” and

he was “very pleased.”

“I just think it’s an affirmation

really, of the good space that our

district is in,” Broughton said.

For roles on the district

council, the election saw all

councillors who stood win their

seats back, bar one. For the

two-seat Malvern ward, district

councillor Jenny Gallagher

received 1572 votes, not enough

to beat either fellow incumbent

Bob Mugford, 1755 votes, or

top-polling newcomer Lydia

Gliddon, 2541 votes.

Gliddon campaigned on a platform

of wanting to see her home

district of Malvern flourish, with

her priorities being delivering

the basics of roading, water and

community support, planning

for future growth and keeping

rates affordable.

Fellow newcomers on the

district council are Phil Dean,

who was the top-polling candidate

in the three-seat Rolleston

ward, receiving 3366 votes, and

Elizabeth Mundt, who was the

second-to-top polling candidate

in the Ellesmere ward, receiving

1578 votes.

Dean is former police senior

sergeant and an active member

of CentreStage Rolleston, who

said while campaigning it was

essential the district council had

processes ensuring community

voices would be heard. Mundt

was among speakers at an

anti-chlorination meeting, and

among her campaign messages

was the need to protect the district’s

water infrastructure from

privatisation.

Meanwhile, Ellis will have

fellow newcomers serving

alongside him on the Malvern

Community Board, of Payne,

Bruce Russell and Sharn Nu’u.

Evacuations

•From page 1

Another crew was at the scene on

Monday morning to dampen some

hot spots.

The site was in the news three

months ago when a man was shot in

early July. Police arrested two men

with gang affiliations in the days

after the incident. A 31-year-old

Mongols MC affiliate was charged

with wounding with intent to cause

grevious bodily harm and unlawful

possession of a firearm.

He pleaded not guilty and elected a

trial by jury. His is next due to appear

in the Christchurch District Court on

December 15.

A neighbour near the property said

the fire was “not a nice wake-up call

for us.”

They were evacuated for about an

hour but returned to their home quite

quickly.

When asked if the building was

unoccupied, she said she had not seen

any activity for a while and thought

whoever lived there had moved out.

Solutions sought

•From page 1

In the first week, only three infringements

were issued, however,

this increased to 20 last week.

“These locations were assessed

following complaints received from

members of the public and where a

solutions-based approach had already

been tried. We have continued with

our approach of trying to get matters

resolved first, and only issuing tickets

where that fails,” Atherton said.

In Selwyn, you can find an oasis

of beauty, tranquillity and a

stunning collection of plants at

Broadfield Garden, 250 Selwyn

Road. It is the perfect spot for a

few hours of relaxation, a picnic

or even the venue for weddings

and other special occasions.

David started planting with a

blank canvas in 1993, and nearly

30 years later, the 4.8-hectare

property now has 3.5 hectares

of beautiful landscape. Architect

Robert Watson planned the area, but

with a wealth of knowledge, David was

the one to do the selection and planting.

As a result, the garden comprises a

mixture of contemporary plantings.

The garden has won awards, including

the NZ Institute of Horticulture’s

six-star garden awarded ‘Garden of

International Significance.’ It is a labour

of love for David, but he now has a

helper five days a week, helping with

various tasks, including four hours of

lawnmowing.

Entering Broadfield Garden, your eye

is drawn down the 120-metre hedgebordered

walk towards the Sedge Pond

and, from there, the spectacular central

feature water canal. Different sections

house Camellia, Rhododendron,

Azalea, Deciduous and Rose gardens

with many splashes of colour. You

will also find a new large vegetable

garden with beehives and a fruit cage

to protect the many types of fruit

from birds. For a shaded walk, you

can wander through the Kauri Forest

with over 100 kauri trees, the Beech

Forest or the Lowland Forest, where

you will see trees important to our

native forest landscape. Throughout

the gardens, you will find eye-catching

artworks, sculptures, knickknacks and

novelty pieces so that you will discover

something new no matter where you

look.

In the Perennial Garden, you’ll come

across a small slate-roofed cottage

with slate tiles originally sourced from

Brougham Street’s Nazareth House. The

cottage was built by David and Dave

Fals, who for 17 years helped develop

the garden. It contains a selection of

horticultural books and photos of

the property before planting in 1993.

David states, “The cottage is really an

anchor for the end of the East-West

vista.” Meanwhile, a Heritage Shed has

a collection of old garden equipment

and an assortment of items from times

past. A viewing mound created from the

canal excavation provides a view over

the garden and a line of sight to the Port

Hills and the Southern Alps.

For a perfect photo location, function

venue, garden visit, or guided tour,

Broadfield Garden, 250 Selwyn Road,

is open every Wednesday and Saturday

from 8.00 am to 4.30 pm (and by

arrangement, phone 027 4334099).

The cost is $15 for adults and free for

children.

Ford Courier missing

after brazen theft

• By Susan Sandys

DANI MURRAY of Leeston

was recovering from surgery

when her 2006 Ford Courier

was brazenly stolen out of her

driveway as she slept.

The red ute was locked and

parked in the short driveway

of her home on Chapman St

behind a closed gate and about

12m from the house.

It was taken overnight Sunday

last week, sometime between

when she had seen it about

10pm that evening, and about

5.30am the next day when her

partner noticed it was gone.

Police responding told her

they thought it was a targeted

theft.

Murray thought the ute was

quite rare and would have held

its value since she bought it

about six years ago for about

$12,000. She believed there

would have been two or more

culprits, who broke into it and

quietly pushed it out of the

driveway, because if the engine

started it would of woken her

up.

While grateful the car was

insured, she said it was a blow

to have it stolen as she was two

weeks into a six-week recovery

period for major surgery.

“It was bad luck all round,”

she said.

Murray wanted people to keep

a look out for the vehicle and

report any sightings to police. At

the time of the theft, its licence

plate is LBP358.

Kakaha name given to

new Prebbleton park

• By Susan Sandys

PREBBLETON’S emerging $17.2

million, 22ha park on Birchs Rd

has been named Kakaha Park.

The first stage of 10ha in the

south-east corner is expected to

be completed later this month

and open to the

public late next

month as new-sown

grass matures.

It includes a dog

park, dog park

carpark, Leadleys

Rd car parks,

three-and-a-half lit sports fields,

walking tracks, cycle tracks and

playground features.

The second stage is to include

installation of changerooms,

pathways and lighting. It is due

for completion June next year

and work is well underway.

The name was gifted to the

district by Te Taumutu Rūnanga

and Te Ngāi Tūāhuriri Rūnanga.

District council acting major

projects manager Phil Millar said

all plants in Kakaha Park would

be New Zealand natives, “so the

name fits nicely with that.”

Kakaha, which is the bush

lily species Astelia fragrans, is

believed to have grown on the

Canterbury Plains

prior to European

settlement. It was

used in conjunction

with other plants

for weaving.

The name kakaha

recognises the

location of the park in a network

of mahika kai (food and resource

gathering) sites on the plains.

“The connection to the trails

and sites of mahika kai is special

as well, as this park links in

with the existing rail trail cycle

network and our modern trails

across the plains, connecting

from Lincoln through to

Prebbleton and on,” Millar

said.

“So people can see

and farms. It is generally opened

to the public only three or four

days each year.

The shed has a display which

was officially opened the same

day as the jail and cottage. It

is a 1950s shop front replica of

Free Bros Butchers and Bakers

of Leeston, with equipment and

tools from that era.

The two latest buildings which

have been acquired are a small

1800s weatherboard home

from Leeston and Lake Rd near

Leeston Park, which once had

a saddlery shop attached to it,

and a long narrow shed with

shingled roof from the early

settler Drumroslyn farm of

Southbridge.

Clausen has a copy of an 1899

photo of the former saddlery

shop. The shop’s owner, Hans

Dierck, is pictured standing

outside with others.

Clausen said Selwyn Heritage

Centre would be replicating the

shop and its signage, building

this on to the weatherboard

home. He personally had some

old saddlery equipment which

would be able to be used in the

displays at the building, as his

grandfather had also once operated

the shop.

The other building, from

Southbridge, was a long narrow

one, in a “pretty rough” state,

which may have had timber for

building the former two-storey

1870s homestead on the farm of

Drumroslyn stored in it.

“It would have taken months

to build the house, so it may have

been used to store the timber. It’s

iconic, because it’s a lovely old

weather board building and it has

shingles on the roof,” Clausen

said.

The buildings restored by the

trust’s volunteers are brought

back to top condition, with

artefacts from their era displayed

inside. Visitors wondering what

the walls might reveal if they

could speak, are given clues with

also displayed.

The incident resulted in these

chains being removed from jail

doors throughout the country.

The small jail was built in response

to a need, which had been

particularly evident at harvest

time when there was a “rowdy

element” in the district.

It was opened in 1876, alongside

a new police station and

stables, enabling Southbridge to

become the new police headquarters

for Selwyn.

Carroll Cottage was built in the

1880s by Irish settlers Edward

and Annie Carroll. They raised

their six children there.

with Selwyn heritage groups on

developing a heritage strategy,

and give consideration to a $20

annual rate for heritage as part of

the 2022-2023 annual plan.

Ultimately the trust was aiming

to give the shed housing its

museum a $1 million update and

have it opened permanently as a

district-wide attraction.

Clausen said such a rate would

go some way towards funding

this. Currently its funding was in

the form of grants from various

organisations such as the district

council and Rata Foundation. It

was also helped by local donations

and at-cost materials from

supportive businesses.

paint over the graffiti on a small

railway shed at Darfield – but

could not get approval from

KiwiRail.

Polglase said he wanted to do

the job himself when KiwiRail

failed to remove the graffiti from

the shed and it sat there for more

than a month.

“People doing the graffiti

haven’t got any qualms walking

onto railway property. We were

quite happy to do the same thing,

if it was helping out,” Polglase

said.

He said it was important graffiti

was removed or painted over

quickly as it brought down the

tone of an area and vandals may

be encouraged to put more graffiti

there. Polglase first noticed the

railway shed graffiti early last

month. He submitted a request

for removal to the district council.

It informed him his request had

been forwarded to KiwiRail.

He did not hear back from

KiwiRail and the graffiti remained

there several days later,

so he phoned its 0800 number.

However, the property department

extension rang but no-one

answered. He then managed to

get hold of a KiwiRail contractor

he knew in the Malvern area.

graffiti denied

‘Famous for their roasts!’

The contractor told him he had

not been informed of the job from

KiwiRail. As the weeks dragged

on, with no sign of the graffiti

being removed, the contractor declined

a request from Polglase to

allow Malvern Community Patrol

members to paint over the graffiti.

Polglase said he and fellow patrol

members were frustrated by the

delay as the district council would

remove graffiti on its property

within two days.

A KiwiRail spokesperson told

Selwyn Times graffiti removal

was undertaken by its work gangs,

which promptly removed “offensive

or threatening” graffiti.

KiwiRail had organised for the

Darfield graffiti to be removed by

the area’s team members “when

they are next at the site and have

the staff availability, resources

and time to remove it.”

The job could not be undertaken

by members of the public.

generation legacy

FOURTH-generation

Hororata resident and

historian, Kate Foster,

has been named the 2022

Hororata Highland Games

chieftain.

Kate is the ‘keeper of

the local stories’, not just

of her family but of the

Hororata community, she

is passionate about the

history of the area.

A descendant of

prominent politician Sir

John Hall, remembered as

a parliamentary advocate

for the Votes for Women

campaign, Kate has deep

roots in Hororata.

Sir John Hall was

passionate about the

community of Hororata

and the wider area. In

the 19th-century he was

involved with establishing

many of the facilities that

are use today such as the

domain, the hall and the

church.

He was an innovative

farmer pioneering

new technologies on his

run, Terrace Station. Kate

now lives in the Terrace

Station homestead, her

ancestral home, and is

a trustee of the Terrace

Station Charitable Trust

which is responsible for

its care as a listed heritage

building.

“This rural area is

renowned for leading

the way, innovating, and

making things happen for

its community,’’ Foster

said. “The Hororata

Domain, where the Games

is held, has been in the care

of the community for 144

years and has hosted many

wonderful events.

Legal Matters

Legal Quarrel? Don’t rest

on your laurels!

If you believe that you have a

legal claim, New Zealand law

requires that you actively take

steps to pursue it within a defined

period of time. If you fail to do so,

the claim cannot proceed. This is

known as the limitation period.

In a debt recovery/money claims

context, a person usually only has

a period of six years to recover

the debt before the limitation

periods prohibits them from

doing so.

Section 11 of the Limitation Act

2010 records that it is a defence

to a claim for money if the

defendant can prove that the

date on which the claim is filed is

at least 6 years after the date of

the act or omission on which the

claim is based. The law requires

claimants to make claims for

monetary or other relief without

undue delay by providing

defendants with defences to stale

claims.

The six-year timeframe

commences on the date the

debt is owed to the creditor, or

the date the debtor last makes

part payment of the debt. If the

creditor fails to actively pursue

the debt within the limitation

period, they will be precluded

from doing so at a later date.

The limitation period may

be extended in certain

circumstances, such as by a “late

knowledge date”. For monetary

claims the late knowledge

extension is 3 years, with a 15

year long-stop.

The purpose of the limitation

period is to promote the prompt

application of justice. It prevents

people from making old claims

against others and, if creditors

fail to bring their claim within

the prescribed timeframe, they

risk being unable to bring a claim

altogether.

Get in contact with us early to

discuss your claim, or the claim

that has been brought against

you. We can assess the limitation

period together with any other

causes of action, or defences,

depending on what side of

the claim are you on. We have

experts in this area of the law

ready to take away some of the

stress and to assist you.

Tough start for newcomers Peninsula

COUNTRY cricket’s premier

newcomers Peninsula-Harbour

received a baptism of fire

on Saturday, suffering a sixwicket

loss to Weedons on the

opening day of the new season.

Just days after a polar blast

brought snow to the region’s

alpine and low-lying areas,

sunshine welcomed the start of

the 2022/23 Canterbury Country

Premier One Day competition.

Weedons, Darfield, Leeston-

Southbridge and Sefton had winning

starts at the weekend in the

race for the Fulton/Wright Cup.

At a picturesque Rhodes Park

on the fringe of the Port Hills,

home XI Peninsula-Harbour, who

won promotion to the top flight

last year, was upset by one of the

competition favourites, Weedons.

Opener Ben Cairns (34 runs off

55 balls) looked solid at the top of

the order on a greenish but pacy

wicket, but didn’t have anyone

stick around with him.

And when Jack Parker removed

him caught-and-bowled, as one

of his four wickets, the home side

were struggling, especially against

the quality spin twins of the bigturning

Blake Coburn (2/22) and

left-arm orthodox Jeremy Benton

(1/12), and were all out in the

37th over for a sub-par score of

128.

Defending the small total,

the combined side got the start

they would’ve talked about at

the change of innings and had

Weedons reeling early at 8/2.

But James Richards showed

his class with a fine half-century,

with Todd Inness (25 off 33) and

Benton finishing the job with an

unbeaten 25 runs off 51 balls.

Reigning champions Darfield

thumped a disappointing

Ohoka by nine wickets, after rolling

the visitors for just 125.

Jesse Frew and Liam Foulkes

both snared three wickets in

restricting a powerful batting unit

to a meagre score that was never

enough.

Henry Shipley, who had a

breakout season for Canterbury

last year and was named player of

the year along with best bowler,

made an unbeaten 49, and was

there with Nick Jenkins (47 not

out) when they knocked off the

win inside 17 overs.

Southbridge securing a hardfought

win over Cheviot behind a

match-winning unbeaten century

from Harry Chamberlain and five

wickets, including a hat-trick by

ex-Dutch international and Canterbury

Country cricket manager

Tim Gruijters.

The visiting Magpies made

181/9 in their allotted 45 overs

behind a well-made 46 from rising

star Archie Redfern.

Leeston-Southbridge timed

their chase well, largely thanks to

a superb knock from Chamberlian

whose 101 not out guided his

side to a five-wicket win with four

overs to spare.

Sefton crushed Oxford-Rangiora

by 145 runs after an impressive

all-round display.

Batting first at Sefton Domain,

the Seals made 217/5 in their 45

overs, with contributions through

the order, before rolling Oxford-

Rangiora, which has picked up

some Southbrook players after

the ‘Brook’s struggles last season,

for just 72.

Kakaha Park weaves new

opportunities for recreation

A new Springs Ward park will weave together the history of the Canterbury

plains with opportunities to make new stories in sports and recreation.

The first stage of Kakaha Park on Birchs and Leadleys Road south of

Prebbleton is set to open in late November, with sports fields, a dog exercise

area and off-road cycling and walking trails among the first areas to open.

The name Kakaha Park has been gifted to the Selwyn District by Te Taumutu

Rūnanga and Te Ngāi Tūāhuriri Rūnanga for the 22 hectare park.

Kakaha is the Māori word for the plant species Astelia fragrans or bush lily –

a native flax-like plant often used for weaving by Māori, in conjunction with

harakeke, kiekie, pīngao, to provide different colours and texture.

The name Kakaha Park recognises the location of this park in the network of

mahika kai (food gathering) sites on Kā Pākihi Whakatekateka o Waitaha, the

Canterbury Plains. There is evidence of kakaha on the Canterbury Plains prior

to European settlement.

“We’re really grateful to both rūnanga for gifting us a beautiful name that ties

in with the history of the area and the unique nature of this park, which will be

something different for Selwyn. All plants in Kakaha Park will be New Zealand

natives, so the name fits nicely with that. The connection to the trails and

sites of mahika kai is special as well, as this park links in with the existing rail

trail cycle network and our modern trails across the Plains, connecting from

Lincoln through to Prebbleton and on,” says Council Acting Major Projects

Manager Phil Millar.

The $17.2 million park is a three-stage project, providing additional recreation

space for the rapidly growing area.

The first stage will include three full-size and one half-size lit playing fields,

wide walking and cycling paths, and a number of cycle features such as

jumps, boardwalks and a snake run, as well as a mini playground, car parking

and toilets.

The further stages will see a changing room and car parking opening next

year, followed by more off-road bike trails, a water way and large areas of

native planting over the next five years.

Apply now for 2023 Selwyn Youth Council

Young people who want to make a difference in their community and provide a voice for youth are

being encouraged to put their name forward for the Selwyn Youth Council.

Applications for next year’s Youth Council are now open to those aged 12-24 years, who live in the

Selwyn district. Applications are welcome until 31 October 2022.

“Being on the Council is a really good way to advocate for things that are important to young people

in the Selwyn District,” Chair Rue Jeche says. “If you want something to change, it’s one of the best

ways to go about it.”

Among the issues the Youth Council has worked on in the last year were collecting young people’s

views on vaping and smoking, and how youth are celebrated in the district. It was instrumental in

helping to decide what would go in the Rolleston town centre youth space, and made decisions on

funding for the Selwyn Youth Project Fund. The Youth Council has also attended civil and Council

events, including CultureFest.

Prospective youth councillors need to be available to attend meetings and events across Selwyn,

and be able to work with other people as part of a team.

Overall, the Council needs to broadly represent Selwyn district’s young people in relation to gender,

geography, age, ethnicity and skills.

The full Youth Council meets several times throughout the year, but Rue says most members are

part of sub-committees that meet every few weeks to deal with specific issues in more depth.

To see the selection process or apply to be on next year's Youth Council, visit selwyn.govt.nz/

community/youth-council. Application forms must be completed by Monday 31 October.

orb-weaver spiders

I LOVE orb-weaver

spiders, not just because of

their spiral wheel-shaped

webs, but also for their

diversity of colours and

shapes.

A reddish coloured one

I found last week in the

garden was identified as

the sooty orb-weaver (Salsa

fuliginata).

It appears to have been

originally placed in the

genus Cyclosa containing

180 other species but has

recently been reviewed by

arachnologists and placed

in a new genus called Salsa

containing only seven

species from Australia,

Papua New Guinea, New

Caledonia and Lord Howe

Island.

Salsa fuliginata was

first recorded in New

Zealand in the 1800s

but appeared to have

died out as they were not

recorded again until 2008

when photographed in

Hamilton.

The sooty orb-weaver

has a large variety of colour

patterns, making them

hard to describe. Body

length also varies, with

females at 11mm and

males only 7mm long.

Orb-weaver spiders such

as these are known to

disperse by ballooning

on silk threads in wind

currents across the Tasman

Sea from Australia to New

Zealand.

It is quite likely this

name their new species or

genera after an anatomical

this case the authors who

named this genus Salsa

did so because it was their

RACING 27

Murray Edmonds – one of the

genuine ‘nice guys’ of the game

• By Frank Marrion

THERE WERE no surprises

when the support for Murray

Edmonds’ recent fundraising

night at Addington proved quite

overwhelming.

Edmonds was one of the genuine

‘nice guys’ of the game who

would pretty much do anything

for anybody and one never heard

a bad word about him.

The overall support extended

to Edmonds and wife Kelly was

also overwhelming during his

brief illness with a brain tumour.

Edmonds died last week at the

age of 62 – it was only about 10

weeks ago that out of the blue he

collapsed while feeding out and

was rushed to hospital.

The initial diagnosis was

encouraging but the tumour

proved inoperable and Edmonds

lost the use of his left arm and

leg, which was shattering for a

man who liked to keep active

and loved working his horses.

Edmonds had trained next to

the Motukarara racecourse for

38 years and had the last of 377

wins when Get Back scored at

Addington in late August.

Watching Our Coin and

Gerard O’Reilly had briefly

looked like giving Edmonds a

fairytale ending by winning at

Addington a fortnight ago on

his fundraising night, which was

sold out in a matter of hours.

The large crowd on hand for

the event erupted when Watching

Our Coin hit the front at the

100m mark, but he was nabbed

right on the line by Rakanotta

and Carter Dalgety, beaten just a

half head.

Edmonds usually drove his

own team and had 345 wins in

that respect, the last with Watching

Our Coin at Addington in

February.

He was driving right up until

the time of his surprise and fatal

illness.

Watching Our Coin pretty

much summed up Edmonds’ attitude

to training for his owners.

He was acutely aware of the

costs involved in racing horses

and did his utmost to keep them

to a minimum, often doing stuff

for people without charging

them.

He avoided calling vets whenever

possible although Kelly used

to be a vet nurse for Bob McKay

in Riccarton and between them

they could usually manage most

issues.

“That was probably to his

detriment to some extent, but it

summed up how much he cared

about people,” said younger

brother Craig.

“He was very loyal to his owners

and his owners were very

loyal to him.

“Guys that worked for him

along the way like Michael

Howard, Darren Simpson, Todd

Macfarlane and Brent White,

they became like family.

“Brent actually lived on the

property for quite a while.”

Howard and his father Graham

were among those to help

with the team when Edmonds

was sidelined.

Ray McNally also helped out

stable employee Brett Gillan in

those remaining months and

many others contributed in other

ways.

“Jimmy Curtin would also

come and help with fast work

along with Tim Williams when

he could.”

The Edmonds family grew up

in Lower Hutt and Craig can

recall being introduced to trainers

at nearby Hutt Park by an

Irishman called Wesley ‘Paddy’

Armstrong when they were

about 9-10.

“I wound up helping out Bill

Marwick and Murray worked

by Brian Hunter, a cousin of Ian

Hunter and I think Charlie.

“Trainers would also come up

from Canterbury and Murray

wound up working for Colin

Berkett in his school holidays.

“He moved to Canterbury

when he was 18 and Colin also

had Mike DeFilippi working for

him in those days.

“When Mike went out of his

own, he asked Murray to work

for him.”

Edmonds married when he

was 24 and bought the Motukarara

property shortly after from

Alex Purdon.

His first training win was with

Idle Thoughts, who Edmonds

drove to win a double at the

Marlborough meeting in February,

1986.

Edmonds had already driven

several winners at that point

including 15 as a junior driver,

the first with the Mike DeFilippitrained

Abel Royal at Methven

in September, 1979, or 43 years

ago.

Abel Royal was raced by

Edmonds’ mother Gloria so he

was no doubt doing much of the

work with him.

Edmonds had his first big

win when Anvil Lad won the

Group 2 Forbury Park 4yo Pacing

Championship in February,

1992, with DeFilippi driving.

Anvil Lad had been purchased

by Graham Beirne after

qualifying for Edmonds and was

Beirne’s first horse.

He won nine races with Edmonds

driving him in the other

eight, with the last of them at

Addington when he beat Blossom

Lady.

Edmonds took Anvil Lad to

the Inter Dominions at Albion

Park in April, 1993, but failed to

qualify for the final won by Jack

Morris.

Murray

Edmonds

had

considerable

harness

racing

success. He

died last

week.

Edmonds trained and drove

the filly Breton Abbe to win

the Hambletonian Classic a

few weeks after that Forbury

Park feature and a few months

later, they won the Group 2

Rosso Antico Trotting Stakes in

Auckland.

The Rosso Antico became the

Group 1 Great Northern Trotting

Derby in 2002.

Edmonds won 18 races that

season and 22 the following year,

while he achieved a career high

24 training wins in 2000 and had

23 in 2008.

It was in the winter of 1999

that Edmonds won the Sales

Series race for two-year-old trotters

with Flip Flop in Auckland,

while Sun Del (2nd in Trotting

Stakes, Sires Stakes & Sales race

at two) and New Year Whiz (2nd

NZ Trotting Derby) were other

top young trotters in the stable

around that time.

Edmonds was going to win

the Sales race for two-year-old

trotters at Addington in 2006,

but Ronnie Coute galloped after

hitting the front less than 100m

from the finish. The Sundon

gelding redeemed himself 10

months later by winning the

three-year-old Sales race.

Around this time, Edmonds

had his best performer in Running

On Time, like Ronnie

Coute another Sundon gelding

which had been bought at the

yearling sales by Eric ‘Cookie’

Inward of Nelson.

Running On Time was beaten

by Sovereignty in the Sires Stakes

and the Great Northern Derby in

2008 and the following year he

finished third in the Group 1 NZ

Trotting FFA on Cup Day, beaten

half a length by Speculate.

Running On Time won 10

races and $138,000, while a

short time later Edmonds

trained a good Muscle Mass

trotting filly for Inwood in K D

Muscles.

She was second in the Sales

race at three at Addington

to Thebestlove and was also

runner-up in the Trotting Oaks

to Majestic Time before a sale to

Australia, where she won nine

races in nine months in Victoria

and finished second in the

Group 1 Knight Pistol to Sunny

Ruby.

Not long after, Edmonds

trained a son of Muscle Mass in

Heavyweight Hero as a two-yearold

for Inwood.

Edmonds drove him to finish

second in the Sales race and

third in the Sires Stakes at Addington

to Enghien.

But following the passing of

Inwood, the family wanted the

horses gone, so Edmonds arranged

his sale to Todd Macfarlane,

and in his first race for him,

Heavyweight Hero was beaten a

head at the Jewels in Cambridge

by Custodian.

Edmonds’ name had become

synonymous with trotters over

the years and 215 or almost twothirds

of his training wins were

with them.

Anvil Lad was easily the best

of his pacers while he trained

another good one for Beirne in

Anvil James before his sale to

Western Australia.

One of Edmonds’ last pacing

winners in Teds Legacy is being

raced by another one of his loyal

owners in Ian Sunckell, a son of

Ted who also had horses with

Edmonds.

Teds Legacy and Get Back

were Edmonds’ last starters in

the same race at Addington last

Friday night.

Edmonds’ oldest son Scott

used to be the track manager at

Motukarara and helped out Edmonds

at the stables from time

to time.

He now owns a couple of gyms

and has a landscaping business,

while Edmonds’ daughter Lisa

is a beautician and runs her

business out of one of those

gyms in Lincoln.

2 Clean your garden tools,

apply some olive oil to prevent

You’ve been waiting and here

they are. Cucumbers, chillies,

pumpkins, tomatoes, rhubarb,

kohlrabi and zucchini.

For new gardeners, zucchini,

tomatoes, lettuces are easy vegetables

to grow.

An all-time favourite is

kumara. Kumara has a wonderful

taste and can be cooked in

many different ways – roasted,

steamed, boiled, and even

soil. Stagger planting

are already available.

Lawn care

As we welcome new growth,

let’s not forget our lawns.

The mix of rain and sunny

weather will make your lawns

Keep them healthy by using

lawn fertiliser. It contains

nitrogen that encourages healthy

growth and fights against disease

while suppressing weeds. It also

has phosphorus which helps

with root growth and sulphate

This is the time to experiment.

GARDENING 31

RICH: It’s time to add fertiliser or compost to the garden and have stakes ready to secure your tomatoes.

Prepare soil before it’s too late

FOR MANY years, Labour

Weekend has been the traditional

time for planting out a full range

of summer vegetables and flowers.

Hopefully you have planned

ahead and prepared your soil

ready for planting. If not, then

add in plenty of compost or

garden mix and combine well

with your existing soil before you

plant out.

There is something special

about growing your own vegetables

– watching them grow from

seed/seedling to a scrumptious

crop through your own tender

loving care might be why they

taste better!

No matter how big or small the

space available; you can successfully

grow veges in regular garden

beds, raised beds or in pots and

containers.

Tasty vegetables to plant now

include beans, beetroot, carrots,

celery, corn, cucumber, onions,

peas, pumpkin, radish, potatoes,

spinach, tomatoes and zucchini,

not to mention the great range of

lettuces available.

If space really is an issue,

there are plenty of dwarf

varieties you can grow. For

plants that need support like

tomatoes or beans, put your

support stakes/structures in place

before you plant your young

plant – so you don’t disturb the

roots later on. Use old pantyhose

to tie plants to support structures

– they are soft, so won’t damage

the stem.

Summer flowering annuals

can also be planted now in either

Garden

In the

beds or large containers. Flower

varieties to grow are alyssum,

aster, cornflower, cosmos, livingstone

daisy, lobelia, marigold,

nemesia, portulaca, petunia, statice,

salvia, stock, sunflowers and

zinnia – to name just a few.

Also, think about planting

some varieties in your vegetable

garden to help attract bees and

other beneficial insects to aid

pollination.

Fresh herbs can also now be

safely planted, such as basil,

chives, dill, marjoram, mint,

oregano, parsley, sage, tarragon,

thyme and rosemary.

They can be grown successfully

in containers or in the garden,

preferring a hot, free-draining

site.

As trees and shrubs come

into spring growth use fertiliser

include your fruit and citrus

trees.

Do not apply fertiliser in very

dry hot conditions such as the

peak of summer when plants

can suffer from heat or moisture

stress.

with intelligro

The cost of buying fresh produce has gone up

significantly, so why not try your hand at growing

your own. As the weather warms up, we can start

to plant more veggie seedlings outside. Vegepods

and planter boxes are great options for starting

out and are great for those that are renting or are

short on space. Fill them with our Veggie Garden

Mix, grab some seedlings and away you go.

Lawn Time

It’s time to fertilise your lawns now, giving them

a good boost going into the growing season. Look

out for signs of red thread, moss and grass grub

and get on top of them before it gets too bad.

Establish a regular watering plan, and raise the

height of your mower slightly. Check out our new

Plug-in hybrid a first for Lexus

IT’S BECOMING a common

conversation when I’m arranging a

time to pick up a media evaluation

car – I’m often told: “It’s on charge

now and will be ready for you later

in the day.’’

On charge meaning it’s an

electric vehicle or plug-in hybrid.

That was the case when I was

confirming the schedule for the

Lexus NX 450h+ F-Sport, a fourcylinder

petrol engine sport utility

vehicle that has hybrid propulsion

and plug-in charging capability.

While hybrids are very familiar

through a host of Lexus and Toyota

products, the NX 450h+ is Lexus’

first plug-in model and I can report

it is a beauty, it carries all of the

typical Lexus attributes along with

the technology that keeps pace

with all of the luxury brands. It

must be said, too, that the driveline

across the NX hybrid range is

a development, it is the latest

generation hybrid system and it is

remarkably sophisticated.

The NX series has entered a new

generation, it’s just landed and it

is bold yet beautiful in terms of

design and style. There are three

variants – a self-charging hybrid

(NX 350h) and the NX 450h+. In

both variants the petrol engine is

aided by electric motors. The NX

350h is front-wheel-drive, with one

motor helping to drive the front

wheels; the NX 350h Limited and

the NX 450h+ are all-wheel drive,

with two motors – one helping to

drive the front wheels and a second

driving the rear wheels.

With the bigger battery, the NX

450h+ has a longer electric-only

drive range and more power than

the self-charging hybrid. Lexus

claims an 87km distance can be

travelled on electric power only

and, as with all of today’s electric

models, charging can be made

from a designated charge port

using the type 2 cable, or from

domestic supply using a three-pin

outlet.

The latter was what I used and it’s

important to me that the cable has

good length; I’m pleased to report

at 8m it is a whopper, by far being

the most generous I’ve experienced

with any EV, it easily reached the

plug in my garage.

Sure, good time is needed to

charge from domestic supply (five

to nine hours), but if you get into

the habit of plugging in, it’s quite

easy to maintain the batteries to

the top end. If you are in a rush,

Lexus claim 80 per cent of capacity

can be reached in 30min from the

nationwide charging stations.

On the subject of figures, Lexus

lists the NX 450h+ with 136kW

and 227Nm from the petrol

engine. Add in 134kW/270Nm

from the front electric motor and

40kW/121Nm from the rear and

TECHNOLOGY: The NX 450h+ will charge from low

capacity to 80 per cent in around 30min at a designated

charge port.

LEXUS NX 450h+ F-SPORT: New generation model has bold design and styling cues.

you have startling performance on

offer.

With such high outputs there

is no shortage of what is needed

to accelerate and make pace with

traffic. The NX 450h+ is quick

with a standstill to 100kmh time of

6.3sec and 4.7sec to make 120km/h

from 80km/h, the highway

overtake very spirited and relaxing

as a driver.

More importantly are the figures

of battery capacity, the NX 450h+

has the highest output Lexus/

Toyota offer at 18.1kWh.

Of course, when battery capacity

is depleted, the driveline returns

to normal petrol only mode, and

it’s also in that mode where engine

development really makes a point,

fuel thrift is engineered into the

manufacturing process, the 2487cc

unit is rated with a 5.5-litre per

100km combined cycle average. At

best possible usage there’s also the

1.4l/100km figure that comes with

full hybrid mode.

Not only is the NX 450h+ a

masterpiece in terms of efficiency,

it is the epitome of quality and

luxury that you can always expect

from the company, it is sublime

in its sophistication, and that

should be a given after paying over

$100k.

To be precise, the NX 450h+

sits at $107,990, the NX 350h

and NX 350h Ltd list at $92,700

and $101,900 respectively.

• Price – Lexus NX 450h+,

$107,900

• Dimensions – Length,

4660mm; width,

1865mm; height,

1670mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheeldrive,

2487cc, 136kW,

227Nm, continuously

variable automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 6.3sec

• Fuel usage – 1.4l/100km

Unfortunately, they are well over

the $80k threshold that would

net you a Government Clean Car

Programme rebate.

Column space won’t allow for

comprehensive detailing but I can

report that everything that can

be built into the car is there for

comfort, convenience and safety.

In true Lexus fashion the entire

NX series is plush, and given it is

a mid-to-full size SUV there is no

shortage of space so the feeling of

comfort is well emphasised.

On the road the NX 450h+

cruises sedately, it covers ground

quickly and quietly, it is the

quintessential SUV in terms of

how it travels, but it has hidden

depth in terms of handling. Even

though it is tall at over 1.6m, there

is little gravitational force over the

suspension, the spring and damper

rates have quality settings that

are biased towards comfort, but

somehow the balance in a corner is

perfect, while the suspension deals

to road ripples without an in-cabin

effect.

Even though four-wheel-drive

is constant, the NX 450h+ isn’t a

cross-country charger, but with

188mm of ground clearance it

has a system that will allow you

to explore tracks that don’t have

severe undulations.

Although, to do that you

may need to get your order

in quick-smart because like

most of today’s new models

the NX 450h+ is chock-full of

electronic components and that

makes it difficult to source the

semi-conductors in this age of

supply shortages, resulting in

manufacturing delays. There’s no

doubt there will be a lengthy wait

for a new NX but it will be well

worth it.

I adore the NX 450h+, it reeks of

refinement and the interior layout

is exquisite in terms of materials,

level of specification and attention

to detail, which all adds up to

high comfort levels, and that is

something that Lexus has focussed

on ever since it landed in our

market in 1989.

I’m due to drive the NX 350

Limited soon, I simply can’t wait.

What build requirements are there?

Explore what a new stage will look like.

Buying in a subdivision

Section availability is mostly in new

housing estates and the district generally

has a number to choose from, especially in

Rolleston and Lincoln.

Factors influencing section choice will be:

the distance from your workplace, ease of

travelling, services available, size and price

of available sections, and where you would

like to live.

Ground conditions may also be a

consideration. In Selwyn, the land

is generally good for building with

only a standard 364 foundation often

required. Many people are choosing a

RibRaft foundation as it offers seismic

strengthening and may work out more

economical.

A factor which should be high on your

list should be the covenants a developer has

in place and whether these will present any

issues for you.

Any new housing subdivision is likely

to have covenants stipulating what can

and cannot be constructed, in terms of

minimum and maximum house size on

a given section, and aesthetic features

like the roof pitch, acceptable claddings,

landscaping and what is permitted on view

from the street.

The covenants will be supplied with the

Purchase and Sale Agreement. Read these,

asking your lawyer for advice and checking

with your builder to ensure these can be

met before signing on the dotted line.

Before finalising your house plan

with your builder and building consent

application is lodged with Council, send

this and a landscape plan to the developer

for approval. This will avoid costly changes

or problems down the line. There may

be a charge associated with Developer’s

Approval or a refundable bond may be

incurred. This process is put in place to

protect the overall look and integrity of

the housing estate and ensure any damage

incurred during construction is put right.

Certain covenants may seem annoying

however, they protect the environment you

are buying into and can be accommodated

with good design.

The standard of builds in respective

subdivisions may vary from smaller

economic housing to larger sections and

homes. There may also be variations in

the features in each subdivision such as

the street width, number of children’s play

areas, walkways and beautification.

Where you are purchasing off a plan for

a section in a new stage of a subdivision,

ask questions so you appreciate what the

area will ultimately look like. Doing your

homework will help give you surety that

what is proposed will happen. This includes

when title is due, something which can be

slowed by Council consent requirements or

the weather delaying earthworks.

Closeness to schools, shops and public

transport may also be considerations,

especially if you want your children to have

independence by walk to school, a park

or sporting activities. Consider how each

subdivision might suit your lifestyle.

Buying a property with trees

enjoyment of their land, which means

that you can’t let your trees become a

problem at their place (and vice versa).

If your neighbours have trees that are

giving you grief, think carefully before

swinging an axe or chainsaw. Legally, you

are entitled to trim any branches or roots

from a tree (or large shrub, or plant) that

encroach on your property unless they

are protected, in which case you may

need resource consent first. However, for

the sake of being a decent human being,

it’s a good idea to talk to the tree’s owners

first. Don’t be tempted to take matters

into your own hands and poison the tree,

or trespass onto a neighbour’s property

to chop parts of it off. One way to resolve

the situation is to seek advice from a

professional arborist. Getting an expert

to prune the tree in a way that doesn’t

destroy it completely will be far cheaper

than engaging a lawyer.

In the worst-case scenario, if you can’t sort

out tree issues with a chat over the fence

or the aid of an arborist, it may be time to

seek help from the Disputes Tribunal or

the District Court. If the trees are causing

a nuisance, such as blocking views and/

or light, and you’re unable to come to an

agreement with the neighbour, you can

apply to the District Court for an order to

get the neighbour to trim or remove the

tree.

For independent advice on buying or

selling property, check out settled.govt.

nz.

Whoever said ‘the best time to plant a tree

was 20 years ago’ obviously never dealt

with overhanging branches, wayward

roots or grumpy neighbours. As anyone

who lives in a leafy area will tell you, trees

can cause no end of bother. Trees can

block views, damage fences and interfere

with power lines. Roots can disrupt pipes,

branches can reduce sunlight availability,

leaves can block gutters and windfall fruit

can attract rodents. It’s a wonder people

ever plant them!

These problems are often caused by wellmeaning

property owners who plant

trees without thinking about how big

they will grow. By the time a tree is wellestablished,

it may be already wreaking

havoc both overhead and underground.

Overhanging branches may present

obvious hassles, but tree roots are usually

out of sight, out of mind until they start

to snaking their way into retaining walls,

foundations or drains (at which point they

become difficult to ignore and expensive

to re-route).

If you own a property, you are allowed

to do whatever you like to your trees,

within the bounds of the law that says

you have the right to the ordinary use and

enjoyment of your land. This is subject

to any protection that may apply to your

Show homes

the ultimate way to shop around

Across the selwyn district, we are blessed with an

extensive array of very good quality show homes.

Building companies build show

homes to demonstrate their

workmanship, display innovative

design ideas and present a snapshot

into a new and luxurious lifestyle,

featuring all the latest in materials,

fittings and fixtures.

A show home can inspire you in a way

nothing else can. You can absorb the

ambiance they present and admire the

innovative techniques, new materials

and technology.

You can ask questions, take notes

and compare. You can see at a glance

features you would love to emulate or

would avoid when building your home.

Best of all, you ;will see the building

companies’ attention to detail.

Show homes are the perfect way to get

a good idea of pricing, discover good

quality and value, learn about superior

use of space, future-proofing, ongoing

maintenance and long-term returns.

So what are you waiting for? Check

out our maps, grab a notepad and

pencil and begin the exciting project of

building your own home.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Faye Homes showcases the

latest trends for new builds

The Te Whariki show home village

in Lincoln provides an opportunity to

discover what’s new in the new home

world by revisiting companies to see the

latest designs and trends.

Faye Homes is no exception with their

Southfield Drive corner property bringing

a new development in kitchens that is,

according to their sales team, popular

overseas, particularly in apartment living.

In the kitchen two matching vertical bifold

doors fold out from recesses in front of

the oven to match up with the cupboard

doors on the left and the pantry doors on

the right.

Other upgrade options that feature

include the skylights and sun tunnels,

ducted heating, schist cladding (to match

the internal schist wall in the hallway) and

the outdoor gas fire.

In the kitchen, stylish Bosch appliances

and black tapware create an impression

while the fridge sits in the pantry with

a third sink available for the after party

clean-up.

The Te Whariki show home also

continues to surprise with a clever setup

in the family bathroom with separate

basin, toilet and shower areas that can be

shut off from each other – imagine how

much easier that would make the morning

rush!

Featuring the impressive outdoor fire, a

large sheltered deck can be accessed from

the lounge and living rooms - and the

kitchen – opening out towards the huge

corner section. The perfect space to create

another room for entertaining and long

summer nights.

A second smaller deck opens from the

master bedroom which also has a walkin-robe

which takes up the entire width

of the room. There are three other double

bedrooms suitable for a range of family

sizes or separate study spaces.

A galley style laundry is spacious with

heaps of storage and opens outdoors

making washing day more convenient. In

the double garage there is a Tesla charging

unit for electric vehicles – a definite plus

these days.

The Faye Homes in Southfield Drive

is well worth a visit and is open from

Wednesdays to Sundays, 12pm until 4pm.

Your award winning partner in home building.
