COOKIE the school reading

dog from Lincoln is so popular,

children have to queue up to

pat her.

The four-year-old curly-haired

crossbreed visits Ararira Springs

Primary School once a week.

“She will walk in the class,

lie down on her back, stick her

tummy in the air and just wait

to see who will come and give

her tummy tickles,” said owner

Jo Wager.

“The children just love her,

we have to try and enforce the

four children rule so she doesn’t

get totally mobbed. We just say

four children at a time stroking

her, that works quite well,

lining up for a quick stroke and

then moving on. She’s a bit of

a star.”

Wager signed up with the

St John Therapy Pets Reading

Education Assistance Dogs

programme six months ago.

The programme’s goal is

to reduce anxiety for school

children who are afraid of

reading aloud, so they become

relaxed and more involved in

learning.

A HOTEL worker who agreed

to be paid in part with pots of

Nutella and a ride-on mower

has been awarded more than

$26,000 for what amounted to

a “retaliatory and arbitrary”

dismissal.

Tracy Tahuhu was also allegedly

told she could no longer

work on Friday nights because

she was “not young enough” and

that she did not have “big enough

boobs”.

Tahuhu joined the Springfield

Hotel as a cleaner in 2020, and became

the front-of-house manager

in the hotel bar the following year.

She said that while there was

both good fellowship and mirth

at the pub, that was not always

the case for her.

The part-time cleaning job

served as a re-entry to the workforce

after some time away due

to a personal injury, the Employment

Relations Authority said in

a decision released last week.

It also noted she was no

stranger to the hotel because

her husband Ernie was a regular

patron there and that some of her

wages would be used to pay down

her husband’s bar tab.

PEOPLE LIVING on rural

blocks are starting to find

out how land rezoning can

hit them hard in the pocket

(see page 3).

The same thing happened

in Christchurch in the 80s

and 90s, when what was

once rural land on the

fringes and within the city

was rezoned residential.

The value of the land

sky-rocketed, which in turn

put the rates on that land

up, making it unaffordable

for many to keep living the

semi-rural lifestyle. They

were literally forced to sell,

usually to developers, who

then subdivided. Houses

Plans to rezone land hikes rates

• By Susan Sandys

LAND VALUES and rates in

some areas of the district flagged

for rezoning have skyrocketed,

even though the rezoning may

never go ahead.

Opposing residents say their

land should not dramatically increase

in value until the rezoning

is confirmed, but Quotable Value

says it must look at proposed

plan changes and how the market

is responding.

QV’s current three-yearly rating

valuations, which became

operative as of September 1,

2021, are in some plan change areas

more than five times higher

than they were for the previous

three years. An example is the

190ha Lincoln South land, now

valued at $36 million, having

increased from $6.6 million for

the previous three-year period.

While the Lincoln South

rezoning was adopted by the

district council in June, it is now

the subject of an appeal, so may

never go ahead.

And while the farmer residents

of the Lincoln South land have

been on board with the rezoning

application, in other areas

residents have opposed plan

changes.

Two Birchs Rd, Prebbleton,

couples, one on 4ha and another

on 0.6ha, are paying much

higher rates due to being in the

527-section Plan Change 79 area.

They both submitted against

PC79, which is yet to go to a

hearing.

The couple on the 4ha block

did not want to talk publicly as

they take the district council to

the Environment Court. They

are fighting against the huge

increase to their land value,

which initially climbed from

$580,000 to $3.14 million. The

couple managed to get it reduced

to $2.19 million after objecting

to QV. Their rates for this rating

year, beginning July 1, were

struck after the reduction. They

have gone up 53 per cent, from

$3128.80, to $4789.15.

John and Sue Sheaf on the

0.6ha block have seen their land

value climb from $275,000 to

$700,000. Their rates have gone

up 22 per cent, from $2399.95

for the 2021/2022 rating year to

$2928.95 this year.

John said it begged the question

whether the district council

would reduce their rates if the

plan change was declined, and

compensate them for higher

rates paid.

“What’s going to happen to

rates that have been put up a lot,

are they going to refund them? I

can’t see that happening,” Sheaf

said.

Another couple objecting to a

plan change is David and Fiona

Lees on Trents Rd, Prebbleton.

They live in the Plan Change

68 area and unsuccessfully

submitted against it. PC68 was

adopted by the district council

and finalised just last month,

more than one year after the QV

valuations came into effect.

The Lees had an increase in

land value from $640,000 to

$3.03 million. This contributed

to their rates almost doubling,

from $2,574.45 to $5,016.95.

“I would have thought valuations

are done on the actual

situation rather than a proposed

situation,” David said.

QV national revaluation

manager Tim Gibson said rating

valuations reflect the market at

the time of the effective revaluation

date, which in this case had

been September 1, 2021.

“Part of the audit requirement

by the Office of the Valuer General

– the independent statutory

body responsible

for valuation

standards in New

Zealand – is to

look at district

planning, including

what is proposed

publicly and

how the market is

reacting to those

proposed changes,”

Gibson said.

Tim

Gibson

“Owners had a right to object

to their new rating valuations, of

which we received very few.”

In an emailed response to the

Selwyn Times, district council

group manager enabling services

Kelvin Mason avoided the question

of whether higher rates

would be refunded if the land

value came down again following

an unsuccessful plan change.

“QV valuations reflect the

market value of a property if it

was to be put up for sale at the

time,” Mason said.

“QV consider a wide range

of factors in calculating the

valuation of a property. That

includes that the value of a

property does increase when

there’s a potential development

opportunity, but that is not the

only factor in establishing the

property’s value,” he said.

Worker awarded payout for ‘retaliatory

• From page 1

This barter-styled arrangement

was agreed to by Tahuhu, which

also saw her wages offset with

large pots of Nutella and a rideon

mower.

Things turned sour earlier

this year when Tahuhu raised

a personal grievance against

the hotel’s owner Blair Wallace

over his alleged conduct toward

her, including what she claimed

were multiple occasions when he

verbally abused her.

The personal grievance was

emailed to Wallace in January

this year by Tahuhu’s advocate

Maryline Suchley and included

a reference to a staff meeting a

year earlier at which Tahuhu

was said to have been left feeling

inadequate and humiliated.

The ERA said Wallace’s

partner Shelley Watson had

allegedly made the comment in

front of other staff that Tahuhu

could no longer work on Friday

nights because she was “not

young enough” and that she

did not have “big enough

boobs”.

On the same day Tahuhu

raised her grievance, Watson

sent a text asking her to return

the keys to the hotel because she

was “deemed a security risk”.

Suchley also received an email

from Watson who threatened to

lodge a fraud complaint against

BAR WORKER: Tracy Tahuhu was awarded $26,000 in compensation. This was for

Tahuhu with ACC.

Tahuhu then discovered she

could no longer access the online

payroll system and that her final

pay had already been calculated,

leaving her to surmise she had

been dismissed by the hotel

without notice.

Wallace told the NZ Herald he

believed the personal grievance

was lodged prior to the start

of scheduled coaching and

counselling in relation to what

he described as Tahuhu’s

rapidly deteriorating job

performance.

“We were concerned over her

emotional and mental state.

Myself, my partner, mother

and several members of the

team received an overwhelming

amount of information about the

challenges she was facing in her

personal life, which had begun to

seriously affect our business.”

Wallace says they had enjoyed

a good relationship with Tahuhu,

and at no point did she raise

concerns about mistreatment

with anyone in the business.

However, the ERA noted the

employer’s lack of engagement

in the proceedings, in spite of

efforts to ensure a fair process.

ERA member Peter Fuiava

said in his decision that copies

of documents which had been

emailed to the employer were

then delivered to the hotel’s

registered office address.

In addition, a reminder of the

date of the investigation meeting

was emailed to the employer, and

the start was delayed to allow

time for him to show up.

Wallace said they initially

engaged with the process, but

due to business challenges,

and extremely limited staffing

resources because of ill health,

they were not able to attend the

hearing on the day.

He said they were not given

any opportunity to address or

respond to any of the allegations

prior to Tahuhu going to MBIE

and using services to lodge an

extensive personal grievance.

The ERA said based on the

information and evidence

provided by Tahuhu and her

witnesses, it was satisfied that she

was unjustifiably disadvantaged

as a result of what it described as

verbal abuse and intimidating

behaviour by Wallace.

and arbitrary’ dismissal

The ERA said it was clear

Tahuhu had underlying

trauma which predated her

employment at the hotel, but it

was satisfied that Wallace knew

she had increased vulnerability

to personal criticism and that

she was not coping with his

outbursts.

Aggravating the effects was the

implied threat to report her to

ACC for fraud, which the ERA

said was a baseless claim, but one

designed to have an impact on

Tahuhu’s mental health.

Fuiava said the harm

suffered was in the moderate

to high range of the spectrum

and awarded $18,000 in

compensation for humiliation,

loss of dignity and injury

to feelings for unjustified

disadvantage and unjustified

dismissal.

He was unable to progress

matters around whether Tahuhu

had been disadvantaged as a

result of sexual discrimination,

because it related to an event that

took place in January 2021, and

was therefore outside the 90-day

period for raising a grievance.

Fuiava said the timing of

the dismissal struck him as

both retaliatory and arbitrary

but more importantly, it was

unjustified and done without

proper regard to a fair process.

He found that Tahuhu was

unjustifiably dismissed and was

therefore entitled to remedies.

She was also awarded $2734

in wage arrears and holiday pay

plus interest on that amount from

January this year; lost wages of

$1800 and costs of $3500.

Tahuhu told NZME the authority’s

decision is a validation of the

“terrible experience” she endured

at her workplace, and that the

experience has impacted both

herself and her family, to whom

she is grateful for their support,

and likewise with her friends.

“No employer should be able

to treat their employees so badly;

this is why ERA exists to help

people who have nowhere else to

go.

“I’m thankful for the

representation I received

to enable me to take on Mr

Wallace,” Tahuhu said.

Wallace says the process has

essentially been a “character

assassination” based on hearsay,

and he’s now getting legal advice

regarding his options to appeal

against the decision.

Landlord pays for

bollards after raids

• By Darryl Baser

SECURITY bollards have been

installed in front of the shops on

Robert St in Lincoln, scene of a

ram-raid in August.

The 17 bollards were paid

for by the landlord of the five

businesses, Shaun Stockman,

costing about $12,000. He said

the bollards had to be put in to

ensure insurance cover.

A stolen car was driven

through the front doors of the

Lincoln Dairy in August, the offenders

taking vaping products

and cash left in a float. They

were captured on CCTV and

found by police that morning.

Stockman said he was disappointed

the Government’s new

crime fighting fund did not

cover the cost of the bollards

on Robert St, particularly when

the Lincoln Dairy had been hit

three times in the last five years.

Like many business owners

around the country, dairy

owner Shehan Saparamadu is

“fed up” with ram-raids and the

death of Auckland dairy worker

Janak Patel, who was stabbed

while chasing a thief who stole

the shop’s till.

Saparamadu described penalties

for minors who commit violent

robberies as “sh*t, sh*t, sh*t”.

“Fog cannons and bollards

are great, but the law needs to

change,” he said.

Saparamadu has changed

the alarm setting in his dairy

to four seconds, from the usual

10 to 20 seconds, to reduce the

time offenders are in his store.

“We were ram-raided in 2018,

2019, and this year. The first

time the alarm went off after the

standard 10-second delay, and

they were inside for 1 minute 30

[seconds], but [in August] with

only a four-second delay they

were in the shop for less than a

minute,” he said.

Gingerbread house

ready to take centre stage after hiatus

• By Susan Sandys

THERE’S NO flashing lights,

tinsel or santa bears at Diana

Renwick’s Lincoln home.

But once inside, the house

screams Christmas nonetheless,

as a classy range of ornaments,

handcrafted decorations and two

friendly cats take centre stage.

Renwick will be opening her

home, known as Gingerbread

Christmas House, to the public

earlier than ever before, on

Friday.

While she usually waits until

the week before Christmas,

this year she is responding to

demand after people missed out

last year following her diagnosis

of the blood cancer multiple

myeloma.

“The diagnosis was rough, and

it’s been a really hard 18 months.

One year ago, I thought those

boxes in the garage might never

be opened again,” Renwick said,

as she recalled not being able

to run Gingerbread Christmas

House last year.

Renwick has since had six

months of chemotherapy and a

successful stem cell transplant,

meaning she is now in relatively

good health. She could not wait

SPARKLING: Diana Renwick will once again open her home, known as Gingerbread Christmas House, with handcrafted

ornaments and 12 full-size trees, each with at least 2000 twinkling lights.

to get into those boxes of trees

and ornaments, and did this as

early as September.

“The sense of elation that I can

open them, and share this with

the community . . . ” she said.

Renwick began opening her

home at Christmas in 2007 when

she lived in Timaru. The Gingerbread

Christmas House, named

after her first artificial Christmas

tree which was ginger-themed,

then moved to Wellington for a

couple of years as Renwick lived

there, before arriving in Lincoln

four years ago.

Renwick is an interior designer,

and artist behind the booming

HeartFelties business, where

she makes replica miniature felt

pets for clients around the world.

Getting her home ready for

Christmas is another creative

outlet for the mum-of-five.

Twelve full-size Christmas

trees, each with at least 2000

twinkling lights and decorations,

such as ribbons, picks, foliage,

baubles, flowers and organza,

will await the several hundred

people expected to turn up each

evening.

Ornaments abound, including

a nutcracker collection from

OUR PEOPLE – SAM BROUGHTON

Serving the community up front and

Mayor Sam Broughton

is a former head boy

and university drop-out,

who loves motorcycling,

and treasures the

pounamu he wears

daily. The 41-year-old

spoke to Susan Sandys

Tell me a bit about your

background?

I was born in Christchurch,

the first of three boys. We lived

in Christchurch until I was

six, then moved back out to

the farm at Darfield where my

grandparents, Alan and Dawn

Broughton, were. I started

at Middleton Grange School

when we lived in Christchurch,

and then I went to Homebush

Primary School. When I was

standard 4, me and my brothers

ended up being home-schooled

for a while. Mum and dad asked

us if we wanted to, it was a bit

of a change. So I did a year

home-schooling, and at the

end of that started at Darfield

High.

Why did you go back into

mainstream schooling after

being home-schooled?

There are a lot of schools

from all the small townships

that all feed into Darfield, and I

kind of felt like that was going

to be the chance where everyone

daughter Elliott in the run-up to October’s local body

election.

is making new friends. And if I

don’t join back into the school

system at that point, it’s harder

to break in as a new kid later

on. I did year 7 and 8 there,

and ended up going back to

Middleton Grange for year 9

through 13.

MOTIVATED: Broughton during a Movember 2021 charity

bike ride across Selwyn.

I understand you were head

boy in year 13, can you tell me

about that?

I remember talking to another

student in year 12 when we

were walking around in town,

they mentioned it about being

head boy. I hadn’t really given it

much thought. I mean, I loved

school, I loved sports, was really

involved in production and choir

and things. I was like: ‘That

sounds like quite a good thing

to do,’ so sort of pursued that.

I was fortunate that the school

wanted me to do that role, and

the teachers and my classmates

picked me. I have really fond

memories of my school years,

enjoyed learning.

What did you do after leaving

school?

I went to England and did

a gap year. I was basically

a volunteer in a boarding

school for eight to 12-year-old

boys. It was an opportunity

to experience something

remarkably different than New

Zealand. There was myself and

three girls from New Zealand,

a guy and three girls from

Australia, and a guy and a girl

from South Africa all at the

same school, so that was quite

fun getting to know people

from overseas and some other

countries. It was a really rich

school, the class system was very

evident.

keeping watch behind the scenes

Can you elaborate on that?

Eight, nine and 10-year-olds at

first didn’t really have any time

to respect us, but within a couple

of weeks after school holidays,

it was fine. The parents were

very warm and welcoming, they

got us to go and babysit their

kids during Easter breaks and

long weekends. I think the most

expensive birthday I have ever

been at was that year, the parents

had spent 11,000 pounds on their

12-year-old’s birthday, it was ice

sculptures and silver platters. We

got paid to look after the kids and

ride bunking broncos and play

laser tag.

What did you do after your

gap year when you came back to

New Zealand?

I had no idea what I was

going to do. I ended up going to

Canterbury University. I thought

I will study economics at uni. But

it was kind of like it was the thing

I should do, rather than what I

particularly wanted to do. And I

have always seen opportunities

and thought it’s better to step

into opportunities as they arrive

and give them a try. If they work

out great, if they don’t work out

you know not to give it (a try)

again. I hadn’t given university a

go, so tried that. I did not really

perform my best, was very easily

distracted from heading off to

class whenever anyone was keen

house colours as part of his youth work in 2010 and helping out on the family farm.

to play, you know, some pool

down at the Riccarton Club. I

ended up after the first year not

going back.

So you are a university

dropout?

Yes. I did one year more

than once, I did that and then

a couple of years later I started

doing property management at

Lincoln University. That lasted

one paper and I got sent the

Resource Management Act and

thought: ‘No, this isn’t going to

be for me,’ so didn’t do any more

than that. I did study a third time

and did theology, by distance,

through Carey Baptist College in

Auckland.

What did you work in

after finishing your one year

Canterbury University?

My school Middleton Grange

asked me to come back and be a

sports co-ordinator. That started

as a 20-hour week job and grew

over five years. Then my church

back in Darfield asked me to

come and be a youth worker.

That was the parish you grew

up in?

Yes, Darfield Baptist Church.

Youth group had been a big

part of my life growing up. I

made lots of good friends, had

awesome experiences on camps,

swimming at the river and things

there. So when the opportunity

was to go back there, I thought

I have received a lot from this

environment, I was keen to

contribute back into it.

You were a youth worker when

you became a district councillor

in 2010?

Yes, there was a bit of a mix of

roles there. It overlapped being

the youth worker for that parish

and becoming a councillor. They

are quite complementary roles,

there is a whole lot just focussed

on families and community.

You grew up on the family

farm but you didn’t become a

farmer, why is that?

Umm, just didn’t really grow

on me. I like the space, I like

that you can make loud noises.

There’s things that happen on

a farm that are cool, I like the

provision of food for people.

I particularly didn’t enjoy the

woolshed, and maybe I had one

or two experiences that actually

weren’t that bad, but whatever

was going on for me at the time

meant that they were. My two

brothers, they are both on the

farm and running the farm. We

have a daughter Elliott. She is

five, she has got cousins on the

farm I still feel very connected to

it all.

What’s it like to be the mayor?

It’s a real privilege because

it’s a role where you get to serve

a whole lot of different people

and try and weigh competing

interests all the time. There’s

a whole lot I got to see behind

the scenes when I was a youth

worker, and now being the

mayor, not only do I get to see

youth work behind the scenes, I

also get to see industry, not-forprofits,

sports clubs, Lions and

Rotary behind the scenes. Our

community is run on volunteers

and on people that love this place,

wanting to give up their time to

make it better. So it’s a pretty cool

part of being the mayor.

12 Selwyn Times Wednesday December 7 2022


• From page 11

Is it stressful in any way?

Yes, well, I want to do a good

job. So you are always thinking

about what does our community

want and what is the community

telling us, as well as balancing

that with what would our

grandchildren want us to do, and

what would those who don’t have

voices in conversations at the

moment want.

You are in your third term

now as mayor, what is your life

goal at this point?

No more than four terms,

that will be it. I think Selwyn

will need someone new at that

point, and we are a fast growing,

changing district. The Selwyn

that I have been a part of is

changing rapidly and I would like

someone else to think about what

their term looks like in this role.

There will be other things for me

to do at that time too, I have no

idea what they are.

Are you going to retire?

No, I will probably have to go

stack boxes somewhere for three

months, just clearing my mind

from all the things that are going

on. I have got nothing lined up, I

feel like I have learned a lot, what

governance and good governance

means, and contributing to

business, so would like to be

involved in helping others that

need that governance experience

if I can. I like hosting people as

well in Selwyn, and thinking

about whatever accommodation

or hospitality and cafe type

things look like for people here,

maybe there is an opportunity

there, I don’t know.

You mentioned all the things

going on, what is the most

fascinating thing going on in

this district?

The best part is change is

happening to us. Change is

very easy to resist, because we

like what we know, and we are

comfortable usually with the

things that we like. So to be

confronted with change, that

can be quite destabilising, but

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

here it is around us all the time.

Selwyn is a completely different

space in 2022 than it was in 2019.

I think that’s exciting, it provides

opportunity for us.

You flipped a house once?

In my early 30s, Liz and I

had a house on half an acre at

Coalgate and subdivided it (in

half). After the earthquake, there

were a lot of homes it seemed a

shame they were just going to

get demolished, so we worked to

relocate something. You realise,

like any project, you think you

know what you are getting into,

but when you have no experience

in it, things are always far more

complicated than they seem

from the outside. We basically

relined, rewired, replumbed the

whole place. We thought maybe

we will end up living in it, but as

it transpired we didn’t need to

move into it, we ended up selling

it, about the same time we sold

the house we were in and bought

a section in Darfield, which is

where we live now.

What are your hobbies?

I ride a motorbike, I have

a BMW R1150R, 2005. Liz

used to come with me on the

motorbike, we actually had our

honeymoon on a motorbike. We

have not both got on the same

motorbike since Elliott was born.

I go with a few friends who love

motorbiking. I’m not sure it’s

the motorbiking, or the stops

for coffee and dinner that is the

best part. Just getting away from

things, fresh air is always good. I

love cricket. The Black Caps have

led me through many journeys

of some pretty deep lows in life,

losing the ’92 World Cup, losing

in the 2019 cup final to England,

rest in peace, and also some great

highs. I play the guitar as well.

What sort of music do you

like?

I quite like 90s pop, pop music,

pretty light stuff, musicals can be

pretty good too. Rock, anything,

I started listening to some

classical stuff recently, cause it’s

different. I play mostly pop songs

from my teenage years, things

that are familiar to me. I’ve been

playing some Crowded House

last week, Better Be Home Soon,

that sort of stuff.

Can you tell me about the

pounamu you wear around your

neck?

Yes, this is a piece of pounamu

that I was given in 2016 from

24-7 YouthWork when I finished

up after 10 years of working with

them. It’s a Marsden stone off the

West Coast. It’s really precious

to me, the memories I suppose of

what it holds. But also thinking

about our journey as New

Zealanders, and what it means to

honour the treaty and work with

mana whenua to create a better

New Zealand. To me now, this

means all that as well. I wear it

every day.

Wetland project reaches design phase

A FIVE-YEAR project aimed

at restoring food resources and

ecosystem values to a stream at

Taumutu is moving from ‘pens

and paper’ to ‘doing’.

The Whakaora Te Waikēkēwai

project includes the construction

of a new wetland on whānau land

adjacent to Ngāti Moki Marae.

The project team, whānau, and

two of the major consultants –

Morphum Environmental – for

wetland design and hydrology -

and Mahaanui Kurataio – for

Mātauranga Māori monitoring –

recently came together for a hui

to discuss initial ideas for the

wetland’s design.

As well as enhancing and increasing

the habitat, the project

will improve water quality and

increase indigenous biodiversity,

helping fulfil cultural and ecological

aspirations for the area

and future proofing it for generations

to come.

The project is unique in that

it’s being led by mana whenua,

Te Taumutu Rūnanga, which is

building on a long-held vision to

restore its cultural connection to

the land.

settled at Taumutu in the 17th

century.

The hapu of Taumutu descends

from this tīpuna/ancestor.

The area once provided abundant

food-gathering resources,

but over generations, the land

use changed and food resources

were all but lost.

After several years of smallerscale

restoration works along

the lower reaches of the stream

between the marae and Te

Waihora, the rūnanga felt it was

in a good position to shift the

focus upstream – reaching out

to 12 private landowners whose

properties will also benefit.

The project is co-partnered by

Environment Canterbury, which

it co-funds with the Ministry for

the Environment’s freshwater

improvement fund.

Said Whakaora Te

Waikēkēwai project manager

Sophie McGregor: “We’ve got

a model that really is working

towards that true partnership –

where mana whenua are leading

decision-making and doing

something that benefits not

only them, but also that wider

landscape in terms of water

quality before entering into Te

Waihora.”

McGregor said there are a

number of layers that make the

project “special”.

“As well as the wider benefits,

it’s providing more options

and opportunities for Te

Taumutu Rūnanga and whānau,

particularly in the mahinga

kai space.”

Readers continue to respond to the issue of

chlorine in the water. •Lobby group speaks out, page 30

Reader Sheryl Allison reacts

last week’s Selwyn Times article

about poor road signage in the

district:

We are beyond disappointment

at being forced to accept the

implementation of chlorine in

our pristine water supply in

Preston Downs, West Melton.

It does not need chemicals added

to improve its quality.

Christchurch city and its

surrounding environs has always

prided itself on its heritage of a

pure artesian water supply.

We realise the infrastructure of

the water system in Christchurch

due to the earthquakes was

damaged but this situation does

not exist here in West Melton

and we are adamantly opposed

to this chemical invasion.

At the very least a referendum

to gauge the opinion of West

Melton residents should have

been held.

Removal of this chemical is

requested immediately please.

Our water now has the most

dreadful smell and taste to

match. – A I and J A Stoneman

I was thrilled to hear

Councillors Grant Miller and

Sophie McInnes were to table a

motion to the district council

last week to cease the temporary

chlorination of our water

supplies. There are so many

people suffering health issues

which are directly related to the

added chlorine.

It has come to my attention

that although it was discussed it

was decided to leave the matter

“on the table”.

I would call on all those in our

communities who are in support

of Miller’s motion, and can make

time available, to be at the next

council meeting. In this way we

can show the council very clearly

that this is a very serious matter

to a large segment of our people.

If you would like to speak of

your particular experience there

is information on the council

website regarding the public

forum.

Let’s do all we can to have this

toxin removed from what was

our already safe water.

The meeting is on Wednesday

(December 14), 1 pm, council

chambers, 2 Norman Kirk Rd,

Rolleston. – Jo Frazer

We live in Lincoln and are

opposed to the chlorination of

our water.

Since it has been in Lincoln

water we can smell it when the

tap is turned on and are not

happy with the taste.

We have lived in Lincoln for

17 years and have never had

a boil water notice. Prior to

living in Lincoln, we lived in

Christchurch and always enjoyed

unchlorinated water.

The district council should

do what Christchurch and

Waimakariri councils are doing

and hold off until exemptions are

heard, temporary usually ends

up being permanent. – Diane

and David Williams

This blanket approach to

destroying the quality of our

water in New Zealand is just

plain wrong.

I live at the Rakaia Huts that

has its own well that we have

been very proud of over the

years. I have worked in both

Auckland and Wellington over

the years, so have experienced

nasty water while there and I’ve

been very relieved on each return

home, to be able to enjoy the

simple pleasure of lovely water

from the tap.

This stuff I have now is just

grim, it even affects my espresso

every morning – and is so very,

very unnecessary – having

to buy bottled water just goes

against everything living in New

Zealand represents.

So I have my fingers crossed

that my little village along with

many other unspoilt places

get their exceptions from this

ridiculous ruling. – Sue Mercer

I am against the chlorination in

Lincoln as all I drink is cold water

– no tea or coffee – and at the

moment it leaves an awful taste in

my mouth.

I do not want to go to the

expense of putting in a filter. –

Mary McDermott

I live in Rolleston and hate

the taste. It smells like I have

just got out of the pool first

thing in the morning when I

shower.

I wonder what effect it is

having on my skin and my

vegetables growing in the yard. –

Karen Feathery

We live in Rolleston, we have

lived in this area for 25 years and

have never had a problem with

the water until now with the

addition of chlorine.

We feel sad that along with

the expensive cost of living we

are having to buy water which

we already pay for in our rates,

ratepayers are struggling while

the mayor gets a huge pay rise, he

needs to be ashamed.

Not everyone can afford to put

house filters in and why should

any of us when we have never

had a problem with the water

in this area in the first place. –

Janene Smith

I live in Everest Way,

Springston. We drive out of

no exit street onto Ellesmere

Junction Rd.

Parked cars on Everest Way

make it very hard to see cars

travelling towards Lincoln. If

turning right there is a Springston

sign and large flax plantings

which makes it hard to see cars

coming from Lincoln.

We need some yellow lines

west from Everest Way towards

Leeston Rd. The sign and flax

removed looking east.

Last week we asked readers what is good about living in the

district, they respond:

We have lived in Lincoln for

almost seven years. We moved

from a rural part of the district.

We needed to be in easy

distance of a supermarket,

hairdresser, library, pharmacy,

post office, bus route.

We enjoy views of the alps,

Port Hills, walks by the Liffey,

the lakes along the rail trail.

We love the birds and the quiet

lifestyle. The neighbours are

friendly and passers-by chat

when we are working in the

garden.

The town aids mental health

and fosters community. It is a

perfect size.

Lincoln is an Envirotown, a

mark in its favour, especially

in these concerning times of

climate change. The fact that

it is a university town with Ag

Research, weekly market and

classy event centre, adds to its

attractions.

We wonder when the district

council will put a stop to future

subdivisions, or whether it is

We want to hear your views

on the issues affecting life

in Selwyn

being dictated to by developers.

New Zealand needs farmland

and open spaces for its

ongoing well-being. Too much

development will compromise

the quality of life which gives the

town its unique character.

Lincoln is a special town with

an enviable lifestyle, an iconic

place to live. – Craufurd and

Jennifer Murray

My wife Andrea and I moved

to Rolleston seven years ago. We

lived in Southshore for a number

of years, but the quakes dealt to

staying longer, and after a look

at different parts of Canterbury

we decided this is where we want

to live.

We love the growth that has

happened to this town, and

the fact that it is new. And also

knowing how safe this ground is.

We have both retired and

everything is here for us. We

have a caravan, so that makes

easy access going north and

south. – Jim Gilbert

Youth space set to

rock on opening

An epic afternoon of events with a skate comp, hip hop, basketball, street art, a nerf

war and so much more will celebrate the opening of the new youth space in the

Rolleston town centre.

A packed afternoon of food and fun on Saturday 11 December will mark the official

opening of the youth space at Rolleston Reserve next to the new town centre.

Youth Council Chair Rue Jeche says it will be great to see such a fantastic space

open. “The youth space is an awesome place for us to be able to come together and

engage in fun and inclusive activities that are local to Selwyn."

Throughout the event there will be skateboarding, professional demonstrations

and competitions by Nelson Creek Skateboards and Outsiders skate shop. Street

art, demonstrations and have-a-go hosted by Canvas Arts, inflatables, horizontal

bungee, sumo suits, nerf war, food and music will also light up the space.

The youth space’s half basketball court and netball zone will get a workout with

Mayor Sam Broughton opening the proceedings with a shoot out comp and Selwyn

Hawks basketball team finishing the day off with skills, drills and 3 x 3 games. The

gaga ball pit will also be a site of fun rivalries with an interschools competition.

The area, designed in collaboration with input from students at Selwyn’s four high

schools, also features a range of hang out areas, and a large ‘Eagle Claw’

basket swing.

The youth space opening will be the second of two events in Rolleston town centre,

with a market day from 9am–1pm run by Rolleston Fields with stalls, face painting,

balloon art and more showcasing the new businesses in the town centre.

For a full timetable of events for the youth space opening visit

Selwyn.govt.nz/youthspace.

Council and Te Taumutu Rūnanga forge new

path together

Te Taumutu Rūnanga and the Council have agreed a new era of partnership, signing a

relationship agreement at a formal ceremony at Te Pā o Moki, Taumutu.

The agreement builds on an already strong relationship between the Rūnanga and the

Council, laying down a marker for future collaboration where both parties can work to

benefit the whole district, Te Taumutu Rūnanga Chair Liz Brown says.

“This is a pou whenua that we are putting in place to mark the significance of

Taumutu and our relationship with Selwyn District Council. While we have a good

relationship, we need something

formal that doesn’t rely on individuals.

This sets that marker in the ground for

us and future generations and gives us

something to go forward

with together.”

The agreement acknowledges both

parties' commitments to grow a new

era of Local Government reflecting

the role of mana whenua as a Treaty

partner of the Crown. It acknowledges

their roles and responsibilities and

sets out structures for working

together to deliver the best possible environmental and community outcomes.

Mayor Sam Broughton says it builds on a history of working together. “The fruits of

that partnership are evident in so much of what is great about our district, the most

recent examples of this being Te Ara Ātea and Kakaha Park; two facilities embraced

by our community. It’s fantastic that we are now formally recognising our relationship

and I’m looking forward to the new opportunities our agreement brings for the

wellbeing of our communities, our environment and for our continued prosperity.

“Te Taumutu Rūnanga is already successfully involved in joint decision-making

processes with the Council through the Canterbury Water Management Strategy and

the District Plan review. The is another milestone on the relationship journey between

the Council mana whenua and tangata whenua for Waikirikiri Selwyn.”

Greendale’s 160-year-old cottage

protected for future generations

When TW Adams began planting trees at Greendale in the mid-1800s, he

wanted to provide shelter on the windswept Canterbury Plains, now a new

installation is sheltering his 160-year-old sod cottage.

The Greendale Community Trust has finished building a canopy to protect

the cottage Alfred Albert Thomas William (known as TW) Adams built at

his arboretum in 1865 – part of the trusts’ work to restore the historically

significant arboretum.

Trust Secretary Ruth Warren says she’s delighted with how the neglected

site has been transformed.

“When we began working on the arboretum in 2016, it was completely

overgrown and inaccessible. After TW died in 1919, there had been no funds

to maintain it. Now it is open for people to enjoy and learn about its history.”

Adams - an international

authority on forestry -

settled in Greendale in 1862

and started an arboretum

growing 800 tree species

and 500 fruit tree varieties.

Some are now the only ones

of their kind in Aotearoa,

and several are extinct or

endangered in their countries

of origin.

To make a home, Adams dug down into the ground and used the earth to

build his cottage.

The cottage’s protective shelter was made possible thanks to volunteers

from the Trust and community, as well as a $4,000 heritage grant from

Selwyn District Council. The grant will open again for applications in

June 2023.

“It’s been a great project, and I’d like to thank all the people who’ve donated

their time and skills to preserve our history,” Ruth says.

Biodiversity projects making

good progress

Restoring and planning the creation of new wetlands, and assessing and

protecting more significant biodiversity sites were among the Council's work

to enhance native flora and fauna this year.

The Council’s biodiversity work programme has been making good progress

in the past 12 months, and Senior Biodiversity Officer Andy Spanton says the

efforts will have long-term benefits.

“Right across Canterbury,

there’s been a proactive focus

on managing and protecting

our indigenous biodiversity,

and we’re really proud to

be partnering with iwi, our

neighbouring councils,

landowners and our community

to make a difference.”

Animal pest control and weed

management are a key focus

for the Tārerekautuku Yarrs Lagoon restoration project, near Lincoln. The

Council received almost $800,000 from the Government’s Freshwater

Improvement Fund last December to restore the significant wetland, and

restoration activities began in autumn 2022.

After purchasing land above Coes Ford in 2021, the Council has been

working closely with manawhenua, landowners and Environment Canterbury

to design a water cleaning wetland and recreation space that may connect

Coes and Chamberlains Fords. These designs are being finalised, and a

Mātauranga Māori cultural assessment will be carried out.

Ongoing biodiversity assessments have seen four more sites added to

Council’s list of Significant Natural Areas in 2022. There are now 73

Significant Natural Areas. Landowners, managers and community groups

have been helped to protect and restore some of these sites through the

Council's Significant Natural Environment Fund.

“The progress we’ve made to preserve and enhance biodiversity values this

year has been promising,” Andy says.

More information on biodiversity initiatives in Selwyn can be found on the

Council website selwyn.govt.nz/biodiversity.

SH1 Rolleston plans progressing

Waka Kotahi has provided an update on the latest stage of the State Highway 1 Rolleston upgrade.

Thank you for your feedback

Thank you to everyone who took the time to give feedback on the recommended plans for SH1

Rolleston earlier this year. In total Waka Kotahi received 756 pieces of feedback. The community

engagement summary is now available on the project website, including an overview of the

feedback received and responses to key concerns. The project website has lots of helpful

information such as a ‘frequently asked questions’ tab. The publications tab features project maps

and a transport investigations document summarising the options Waka Kotahi considered and

reasons for the recommended plan.

Next steps and coming up

Findings from the second round of public consultation have been incorporated into the concept

design - expected to be finalised in 2023.

Once the business case is approved, Waka Kotahi will begin work on more detailed designs,

gaining consents and progressing talks with affected property owners.

Working in partnership, Waka Kotahi and mana whenua – Te Taumutu Rūnanga and Te Ngāi

Tūāhuriri Rūnanga – have started to explore opportunities on how cultural narratives could be

incorporated into the project. While it’s early days, we look forward to sharing more with the

community as mahi progresses.

Visit nzta.govt.nz/rollestonflyover to subscribe to updates and for more information about the

SH1 Rolleston Transport Improvements Project. This NZ Upgrade Programme (NZUP) government

funded project will result in safer access and better connections for more people. Travel times

through and around Rolleston will be much more consistent, reliable and predictable, so it’s easier

for people to get around by car, bicycle and bus, to move goods and do business.

OPINION

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Take a stand against chlorination

Heather

Morton of

lobby group

Clean Water

Selwyn

writes about

chlorination

MANY PEOPLE in the Selwyn

District have expressed their

opposition to the compulsory

blanket chlorination of all

Selwyn water, as well as the

Three Waters Bill.

Feedback from the community

is strongly opposed to

chlorination.

People want a council with

some backbone that will stand

up for them.

Our principal aim is to raise

public awareness, unfortunately

it’s taken the smell and taste of

chlorine to do this, hence the

push back from the community

now.

People in our group, and

those we have talked to,

are incredulous that the

Government continues to

mandate Three Waters.

We are also pretty amazed

and disappointed at the council’s

current position with temporary

chlorination, enacted before

exemption results are back,

and then to turn around and

say it will cost $250k to remove

the chlorine, and furthermore

to use that cost as a barrier to

rectification, wow.

So, our rates will be used

to remove something we were

opposed to in the first place? Isn’t

turning off a switch sufficient?

Perhaps we need an Official

Information Act request to

itemise the exact costs of simply

stopping chlorination, as the

sum quoted does not seem

reasonable or justified.

Our public meeting in

September 2022 was well

attended with about 180 people

from all walks of life. We were

thankful for everyone that gave

us their time that night. The

result of the meeting was: “What

can we do next?”

Our answer is for anyone who

dislikes the new taste of their

water since chlorination, or is

finding skin conditions, ailments

increasing, and general health

deterioration please phone the

district council and let them

know, not just once but until

they listen to us.

Back in July our group had

quite a few members address

a district council meeting and

presented letters and a petition

with over 1000 signatures

opposing chlorination.

We also had two very

emotional speakers who

explained how past chlorination

had debilitated their way of life

and that they had moved to

Selwyn due to our lovely pure

water.

Well done to the mayors of

Christchurch, Waimakariri and

others who made a stand and

asked questions rather than

submit to the water regulators.

All New Zealanders have a right

to clean water.

We are very proud of the

stand that the Birdlings flat

community has made and thus

far has prevented chlorination.

We do have community

support but if you would like

to be part of this change please

start talking to your friends and

neighbors.

There will be a meeting on

Wednesday (December 14)

at 1pm at the Selwyn District

Council and if you would like

to be part of the public forum

and speak for five minutes on

how chlorination will affect you

phone the council and request a

spot, however if you would just

like to show your support, your

presence will be valued.

Together we can make a

difference.

Do you suffer from

dizziness, vertigo or BPPV?

These issues can be treated with vestibular

physiotherapy.

Vestibular rehabilitation therapy is a specialised

form of therapy, in which physiotherapists

work to improve symptoms of dizziness and the

balance problems that can occur with vestibular

dysfunction. Balance problems and dizziness can

all be treated very effectively.

Our team of experienced physiotherapists

have all completed internationally recognised

competency courses in Vestibular Rehabilitation.

Strong run gets Thornley first Group One win

provide the popular Thornley

with the first Group One victory

of her driving career.

No Matter Wat went into

the Oaks a big improver after a

stunning third in the lead-up last

Friday week but while Thornley

hoped she could win she thought

a top three finish would be a

great result so set about putting

No Matter Wat’s mind on the

job.

“After she galloped away last

week I gave her a real rouse up in

the prelim to get her mind on the

job,” the Prebbleton 22-year-old

said.

“The problem was it worked

too well and she thought she had

to go like that the whole race.

“I was really happy to get her

off the gate so well and get the

front but when she kept going

and wouldn’t really come back to

me I started to worry.

“So I tried to control her and

keep her from choking down but

then later she started to get some

of her Harry Houdini steps going

and I thought she might break.

“After all of that to get her

home was such a relief but also

an amazing buzz.

“This is why we are in the

industry to try and get wins at

this level so to break through is a

wonderful feeling.

“And I have had so many

people contact me, my phone has

been blowing up after so that’s

really great to have that support.”

No Matter Wat held out the

passing lane surge of Obsession

with favourite True Fantasy third

after sitting parked in the 1:56.8

mile rate for the 2600m.

Thornley has been making

a name for herself as a driver

for the last two years but it is as

one of the head staff at All Stars

stable in Rolleston and a constant

travelling companion for

their elite horses that she is most

recognised.

HAPPY:

Olivia

Thornley

brings No

Matter Wat

back to the

winner’s

circle after

Sunday’s

New

Zealand

Oaks at

Addington.

Go back through the footage

or files of recent Group One

winners in New Zealand and

you will see plenty of Thornley’s

trademark smile helping some

of our best horses back to the

stables.

“I have been there (All Stars)

seven years at Christmas, I

started when I was 15,” she said.

“They have been very good to

me and I am learning so much

and I realise the great opportunities

I get. So to get that Group

One for everybody else at the

stables and the owners as well

feels good.”

It isn’t just driving that interests

Thornley heading forward

though as she and her mother

Jackie have a broodmare now

and are on to their third co-bred

foal so Olivia is already working

her own youngster with more to

come.

“I don’t actually work him at

the All Stars cause we are full so

I go work him afterwards.

“We have two now by Creatine

(stallion) out of the mare from

the family breed and I love the

trotters.

“So that gives me another

thing to work on and learn

from.”

No Matter Wat’s emergence

suggest she is going to be an even

better four-year-old next season

in a crop that feels like many of

the participants have plateaued

after the longest three-year-old

season ever.

Judging by what she was able

to do after over-racing Krugstyle

from the Northern Derby

last year, No Matter Wat may

have a bright future.

So too, does Thornley.

a massive day for owner Ian

Grand Prix meeting on Sunday.

His victory in

the Group One

Trotting Free-For-

following Don’t

win in the group

parked throughout before breezing

by her rivals at the top of the

straight as if that sizzling pace

had meant nothing to her.

Hope was rapt to be able to go

nicely and was able to quicken

when I asked her to.”

Sunday’s win was Millwood’s

Nike’s third at Group One level

following her record breaking

win in the Sires Stakes Fillies

Championship last month.

Though she was clearly there

before the race, her stunning

victory clearly pushed Milwood

Nike higher into rarefied air,

“There are no certainties in

racing, but I knew that if he

was on his game it would take

a special horse to beat him over

the short distance.

“In my opinion, he is the best

horse in the race and I think you

have to drive him like it.”

Hope was pleased to get

another Group One for Dobson,

particularly having recorded

his first elite-level victory in the

bike behind Muscle Mountain in

the NZ Trotting Championship

(2600m) last year.

“Ian has shown a lot of faith in

me, so it is great to reward him

with another group one win,”

Hope said.

Victory in the Trotting Free-

For-All is nothing new for the

Hopes, with the Woodend Beach

operation having tasted success

in the race with their former top

trotter Monbet.

“Monbet won it twice. He was

a super horse and so is this guy,”

Hope said.

Record-breaking filly takes eight-for-eight

occupied only by some of New

Zealand’s greatest ever two-yearold

fillies.

“Eight for eight at the end of

the year, to run a national record

way she did it,” Purdon said.

“She is the best filly.”

The winner stopped the clock

in the Ace Of Diamonds in a

2-20.3 time for 1980m.

In doing so, Millwood Nike

broke the 2-21.2 national record

time she set in the Sires Stakes

Millwood Nike is raced by

Don’t Stop

Dreaming

takes control

one lap out

• By Joshua Smith

HIS SECOND-LINE draw may

have kept him out of favour with

favourite punters, but it proved

no issue for Don’t Stop Dreaming

who led home a sea of blue in the

Group One Ace Of Spades 2YO

C&G Mobile Pace (1980m).

The Mark Purdon and Hayden

Cullen-trained juvenile had won

five of his previous six starts, including

the group one Sires’ Stakes

Final (1980m) last start, however it

was stablemate Sherlock who was

backed into favouritism after he

drew the one marble.

Purdon kept his faith in Don’t

Stop Dreaming and elected to

stick with the colt, with the

knowledge he would have to show

his superior qualities in order to

defeat his favoured stablemate.

Purdon eased his charge off the

gate to settle at the rear of the field

before assuming control of the

race off Sherlock with a lap to go.

Don’t Stop Dreaming didn’t

relinquish his advantage and saw

off a late challenge from Sherlock

to win by a neck, with a further

2-1/2 lengths back to Sinbad in

third, while Final Collect and

Vinke B completed the first five

for the All Stars barn.

Touching on his tactics, Purdon

said he felt he needed to make his

move when he did otherwise he

would risk getting boxed in.

“Johnny (Dunn) was outside me

early and when he got to the death

I could hear others coming and I

thought the three-wide line would

block him in, so I opted to make

a quick decision to get out and get

going with him,” Purdon said.

“He was clearly well today and

once he made the front he was going

to be hard to beat, and he held

Sherlock off well.”

Don’t Stop Dreaming was

purchased by Purdon out of

THE LEAST talked about of

Paul Nairn’s incredible talents

as a horseman shone through

when Confessional ran to a

commanding win in the group

one Ace Of Clubs at Addington

All of Nairn’s skill with a

young trotter was on display

when the youngster powered

away from his rivals in a national-record

breaking victory.

Nairn’s drive was as good as

his horse’s brilliant performance.

Over the years, the Leeston

trainer has handed the reins of his

star horses to a line-up of top class

drivers, including David Butt.

These days it’s Butt sitting

in the stands as a successful

part-owner and breeder of

Confessional as Nairn is tasked

with making the decisions on the

The result was Nairn producing

Stylish welcoming

home a show stopper

There’s something special about the

Mahuri showhome by Greenland Homes

with its contemporary design and layout. It

is stylish and welcoming and well worth a

visit if you’re thinking of building your own

home.

The 242m2 Mahuri home is in Lincoln’s

Southfield Drive and is next-door to the

smaller Toroheke showhome at 196m2.

The entrance at Mahuri is spacious with

1.4m wide barn-doors on either side and a

stunning feature wall.

All four bedrooms are very generous in

size with plenty of storage and a built-in

desk in one of them. The sleeping areas are

serviced by a full bathroom and separate

toilet with brightly coloured yellow tiles

setting off a beautiful bath. Underfloor

heating in both the bathroom and ensuite

will keep toes warm during the colder

months.

Enter the living areas and kitchen

through the barn doors and again it is a

spacious and stylish space with a separate

living/media room at the far end behind

the kitchen. Cathedral ceilings in the dining

and living areas take the room height up to

4.5m.

Serviced by a Rinnai hot water system

the designer kitchen has green lacquered

joinery, engineered porcelain benchtops

and an incinerator with instant hot water

tap.

Greenland Homes is a hands-on

company with a small hardworking team

servicing the Canterbury area only. They

have a massive range of easy-to-read

information including an explanation of

the different ceiling types for internal areas.

An excellent feature in the showhome

brochures is that there is a build price

on the front as per the showhome’s

specifications but, on the back, there is a

list of options to reduce that price including

changing the type of doors, a smaller

shower, altering the cladding or removing

the built-in study.

potential buyers

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.

Booth’s power-hitting gives

Leeston-Southbridge

comfortable win

COUNTRY cricket swung

into the sport’s shortest

format at the weekend with

the one-day competition

front-runners continuing

their form in the T20s.

There were double

victories for Weedons on

the back of several useful

personal performances.

The stand-out effort of

the round though belonged

to Ethan Booth.

Batting at number six

for Leeston-Southbridge

against Darfield, Booth

smashed an incredible, unbeaten

62 off just 26 balls,

in a swashbuckling innings

Short scorecards:

that included seven sixes.

There was even a rare

win for season-strugglers

Oxford-Southbrook. It may

have been a nervy, tight

victory over the Cheviot

Magpies but it must have

tasted especially sweet.

Batting first, Oxford-

with mainstay David Fulton

again leading the way

with 46.

Fulton was well-backed

through some lusty late

BACKYARD CRITTERS

OVER THE weekend

I noticed several of my

Hebe (genus now called

Veronica) plants riddled

with caterpillars and

looking very scruffy to say

the least.

I have collected some

of the offending larvae

and will try to rear them

through to moth to confirm

their identity.

In the meantime, I

found a moth resting on

one of the Hebes (I prefer

the original name) and

identified it as Amblyptilia

heliastis, which as it turns

out, has Hebe as it’s larval

host plant.

Since then, I noticed

Hebes on the corner of the

Lincoln Challenge service

station also

had the same caterpillars

and damage. It is of course

possible that the larvae and

adult I identified are two

different species, but the

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in entomology (insects

and other invertebrates). Each week he introduces a new species

found in his backyard at Lincoln. His column aims to raise public

awareness of biodiversity, the variety of living things around us.

Check out the full list of invertebrates found at www.inaturalist.

org/projects/backyard-biodiversity-bugs-in-my-lincoln-section

Watch your garden

for destructive moth

adult is an endemic New

Zealand species.

Adults are T-shaped and

have narrow wings approximately

the thickness of the

abdomen but wider at the

wingtips.

They are light brown

in colour with darker

brown patches including

a triangular one close to

wingtip. They have a 19mm

wingspan.

Adults fly between October

and February and are

usually associated with a

subalpine species of Hebe.

Checking iNaturalist, it

seems my observation is

the southernmost found

to date and eight observations

have been found in

Christchurch.

So, keep an eye out for

damage or caterpillars on

your Hebe plants.

It has been a year marked with significant movements. From the lifting of Covid Traffic

Light System to the lifting of our Womens Rugby World Cup Championship trophy, it has

been a wild ride! Is it done yet? Who knows, we are all working through pressures of rising

cost of living. As we move towards Christmas, the festive season can easily tag along with

it a mood of stress and anxiety. While this may be true, the good news is that anxiety does

not have to be your experience of the festivities. The christian story of Christmas carries

a calming and reassuirng message of joy, love and hope. The boy-child born on Christmas

day, Jesus Christ, is a joy-filling reminder that God is interested in humanity therefore we

don’t have to carry the burdens of life all by ourselves. God invites us into a loving and

secure relationship with Him that no matter what life throws at you, you have a strong

sense of hope that makes you resilient through seasons of life. Feel free to pop into one of

our Christmas services this December for a chance to hear more of the Christmas story

and sing some of your favourite carols. Looking forward to connecting with you in person.

In praise of 150 years

Cecil Mountfort design: The church as it

was originally built with a timber exterior,

roof-mounted belfry and decorative tiled

roofing.

St Paul’s West Melton is excited to

celebrate 150 years of worship on December

11 at 10am with a special service led by

Archdeacon Mark Chamberlain.

Morning tea, lunch and cutting of a

150th celebratory cake will follow the

service, along with a chance for current and

past clergy/congregation members to get

together and reminisce on their time at St

Paul’s.

The first service

The first Church of England service

(conducted by Archdeacon James Wilson

of Riccarton), was held at West Melton in

the town’s original schoolhouse, on the 22

Modern upgrade: St Pauls Anglican

Church West Melton as it is now with its

separate belfry, roughcast exterior and

updated roofing.

December 1872.

In the same year, J. Potts called for

tenders to build a church in the town,

stating the timber was already on the site.

Built to a Benjamin Mountfort design, the

new Church of St Paul’s was consecrated

by Bishop Harper, 12 years later on 28

November 1884, with the service attracting

over 100 people.

The church’s 200-pound bell, which

still rings out every Sunday morning, and

on other special occasions, was donated

in 1885 by Mrs Neave. Until 1952, it was

located at the west end of the church then

later installed in a free-standing belfry (built

by Lester Langdale), beside the church’s

vestibule.

Between 1884 and 1942, the church was

part of the Parochial District of Courtenay,

however due to a shortage of clergy during

World War 2, St Paul’s West Melton became

part of the Parish of Prebbleton and

Templeton.

In 1956, St Paul’s joined with St Saviour’s

Templeton and St Columba’s Hornby, to

form a separate parish with local people

taking an active role. Today, weekly services

are held at St Paul’s West Melton, under the

ministry of the Reverend Les Memory.

A growing community

While the community has grown over

the years, St Paul’s church has maintained

its authenticity with few structural changes

– the exterior walls have been roughcast

and the roof replaced. The church’s hall was

donated and moved to the site in the late

1970s, to accommodate 36 children who

attended the Sunday School.

The church sits proudly today as a

testament of the past along with its

cemetery bearing the names of many wellknown

local families.

The organisers of the 150th would

love to hear from anyone interested in

attending the celebration. To register,

contact: Ross Jones, 027 625 8467.

Inaugural polo event

a day to remember

Support

Sheffield Country Polo has

held its inaugural tournament

with organisers already

enthused about next year’s

event. Dan Van Der Salm

reports

WITH MOTHER nature threatening

to derail the first Sheffield Country Polo

afternoon on November 26, about 700

people were looking to the skies in the

hope she would play ball. And did she

ever – what a day.

With a stellar line-up led by Matt

O’Sullivan from Ashburton, the players

put on a real show. Right from the first

whistle, where the ponies raced in an

impressive jousting style start, the game

was on.

MC John Dunne was in his element behind

the microphone and had the crowd

revved.

Four high quality and even games

were played. A bit of wind meant the ball

floated around and occasionally flew into

the crowd, but this just kept everyone on

their toes and their eyes on the game.

Half time entertainment was a real

laugh, with the stomping of the divots,

the Sheffield PTA auction (a highlight

being a processed lamb selling for $700),

and a fat beagle male and dalethorpe

house female best dressed competition,

won by Ethan and Sally.

The final game was taken out by the

Bayleys team, of Ben Turner, Tom Turner

and Mark Hutchinson. Special mention

must be made of Taylor Cleland, who

took it all off to personally raise some

funds with a well-timed and supported

lap of the field.

Next up was the human sulky race,

with eight teams competing for the

coveted bragging rights. A tough round

robin was followed by a tight final, which

saw the win go to Progressive Livestock,

captained by Rich Harley.

After the formalities were completed,

local group The Pig Saddle Band took the

proceedings well into the night.

A massive thank you must go out to the

following people, for without them the

event would not have happened: MC John

Dunn, Frews Transport, Fahey Fence Hire,

Sheffield Primary School, Sheffield Rugby

Club, Sheffield Volunteer Fire Brigade

for their outstanding taxi services, St

John, Malvern Lions Club, and the many

people who helped on the day. Event organisers

were blown away with the level of

support from the wider community as well.

Watch out for next year’s tournament,

which promises to be bigger and better.

For more info contact: sheffieldpolo@

gmail.com

Leeston retains that village sense of

community and belonging, and people

support each other. Long-time locals Jeff

and Bronwyn from Hammer Hardware

suggest that Leeston is a communityminded

town that hasn’t lost its Kiwi

values, including helping others when

they need it. Whether it be volunteers,

the town committee or local businesses

sponsoring events, Leeston people are

keen to provide support.

Part of being a community is

participating in organised activities and

events. For example, in the lead-up to

Christmas, people can be involved in the

Day Club, The Ellesmere Christmas Golf

Tournament or giving donations.

Volunteers run the Day Club at the

Leeston Library from 10am to 2.15pm

every second and fourth Tuesday of the

month. Activities for older people include

morning tea, lunch, games, speakers,

music, quizzes and outings.

Volunteers also organise the upcoming

Ellesmere Golf Christmas Tournament.

This event attracts 120-150 entrants

across different divisions, with raffles and

an auction supported by several local

businesses.

The townspeople also help out those

who may be struggling, especially at

Christmas. The Ellesmere Community

Care Organisation accepts Christmas gifts

and non-perishable grocery items to be

distributed locally at the Lakeland Art

Gallery up to the 16th of December.

Christmas in LeestonAdvertising

Leeston– Community

Spirit at Christmas

Times may be challenging, but Christmas brings joy,

togetherness and the Christmas spirit. Christmas shopping

may be well underway for some people while others are

still looking for inspiration. Leeston is a great place for

gift buying for friends and family while also supporting

local businesses. Window and indoor displays feature a

Christmas theme or showcase products to draw your eyes

and beckon you to open your wallet for that “must-have”

gift. As December nears, you’ll soon see the Christmas flags

adorning the lampposts along High Street.

A walk along Leeston’s High Street shows boutique

shops’ charm, creativity, and the feeling of individuality

while window shopping. With plenty of options to choose

from without being overwhelming, local worker Callum

suggests, “Buying gifts in Leeston is a lot easier as there

are different varieties, and it is convenient.” No

matter who you are buying for, there is a shop to

suit your needs, with a surprising range of products

for everyone. You might try High Street Collectibles

for a unique gift or treasures from the past, while

Lakeland Art Gallery may have a unique piece of

art for that special present. Hello Dolly Boutique

has a range of gorgeous clothing from local and

international designers if you’re after that perfect piece of

clothing. A Christmas pack of hair products or a voucher

from The Cutting Room may be much appreciated if you’re

looking for a practical idea.

If you are the creative type and you’re keen to make a

hand-crafted keepsake, then Kim at Periwinkle on High

Street has Christmas-themed classes to create stunning

houses, hoops, shadow boxes, table arrangements, fairy

doors and gnomes to grace any home over the Christmas

season.

This year, don’t suffer the stress and parking hassles of

shopping at a mall or the City centre. Instead, support

Leeston businesses and experience convenient and friendly

personal service when you buy unique and exciting gifts

locally.

Santa’s workshop

is coming

to Darfield!

Ever visit a town when you’re

on holiday and come away

with that special something

you haven’t seen before?

Well, that’s exactly what can happen

when you come out to Darfield. With

an ever-increasing number of gift shops

to choose from, you’ll be sure to find

a special Christmas present or two.

And while you’re there, stop for lunch

or coffee or even try one of Darfield’s

biggest icecreams – we’re famous

for them. You might even find some

specials for your Christmas dinner at

our local supermarket, butchery and

fruit and vege stores.

Menzshed Darfield has been busy with its members

creating a range of wooden toys throughout the year.

Open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9am to 12pm, the

Menzshed has a display area where you can choose

that special Santa present. Toys range from merry-gorounds,

cars, trucks, graders, tractors, dolls’ beds, child

size garden chairs, fairy doors, push carts and building

blocks to name just a few. Also available to purchase is

a delightful restored rocking horse, its design said to

have a link to royalty!

And if you’re looking for a particular item to be

made, Menzshed Darfield may able to help, so give

them a call on 022 454 2846 or email: darfieldmenz10@

Give the Gift of “Peace

of Mind” this Christmas

‘Tis the season for family memories and… estate

planning! Giving your family the gift of ‘peace of

mind’ might not be the most exciting present, but

it sure is a great way to show your loved ones that

you care, by protecting assets and family.

We share four festive reasons why you should

take this opportunity to work with us to complete

your estate planning:

1. The family is together. Having meaningful

estate planning discussions can help us to

deepen connections and to seek input from

those we care about most. While this discussion

is useful, your wishes and decisions are final. If

you want some help with knowing how to start

the estate planning conversation, start with a noobligation

phone call to your local TP team,

03 317 9099.

2. You are likely to be in the right, future-focused,

mindset. The holiday season is a time to reflect

on the year that has been and to set goals for the

New Year. There may have been new additions

to your family that you may want to include in

your Will. The holiday season is full of reflection,

goalsetting, milestones and special occasions

to celebrate, all of which typically require the

updating of your estate plan.

ADVERTISEMENT

3. A change to your estate. Although not the

reason for the season, Christmas is often a time

when gifts are exchanged. If you inherit property

or money this holiday season you may want to

include it in your Will. Many families pass down

sentimental gifts through generations. If you

receive a generational possession, you may know

exactly who it should go to next and the best way

to ensure that happens is to record the direction

in your Will.

4. Your TP team are local lawyers, that endeavour

to make the process quick and painless. If you

can’t make it happen prior to Christmas, take a

step towards progressing the matter by booking

an appointment for the New Year. We are closed

from Christmas Eve and re-open on the 16th

January 2023.

One of the most important gifts you can give your

family is peace of mind. Tavendale and Partners

Lawyers are able to assist with much more than

just a Will. Your TP team can give you specialist

legal advice, tailored to your circumstances, to

ensure your wishes are recorded and your estate

correctly administered in the future. December

is here and Christmas is near, get in contact with

your local TP team for an initial consultation.

Embracing ecofriendly

practices

Two local businesses, Darfield Eco Centre and A

Twisted Bunch, recently received first and second place

area awards respectively for Malvern for their dedication

to maintaining their environmentally friendly status

through the Selwyn Responsible Business Awards.

The awards, run by Lincoln Envirotown, help

encourage businesses and schools to make their

practices as environmentally and socially responsible as

possible.

This year Darfield Eco Centre took first place with

runner-up A Twisted Bunch, while Glentunnel School

won first place for the Education category.

This year Darfield Eco Centre received the platinum

award, a step up from the gold received in 2019.

Feedback on her entry this year mentioned the wide

range of eco products for sale as well as, “Your effort to

minimize waste and to reuse and recycle is outstanding.

I like how you make plant labels

out of plastic bottles!”.

Owner Jane Vaissaire says

she has a strong focus on being

as environmentally friendly as

possible. “I don’t use chemicals

in the treatment of our plants at

the centre. I try to encourage,

share information and educate

others to be eco friendly in their

practices too.”

Jane says she sees the centre as being a social hub

where like-minded people can meet and learn. She

happily works with schools, childcare centres and

garden clubs, and also welcomes individuals and groups

to come along and share their skills. She also adds that

her husband, Rex Verity, has been instrumental in

the success of her business, supporting, encouraging

and educating her in the benefits of running an

environmentally sustainable business.

Ali Van Groen of A Twisted

Bunch is equally happy with her

placing and gold endorsement

in this year’s awards.

She says her aim has been to

create as small a footprint in her

business as possible. Ali tries

to source as much product as

possible locally and all her green

waste is composted. She works

hard with her growers to get her

floral products supplied unwrapped or wrapped using

recycled paper.

Ali also stocks organic products with packaging

designed to have minimal impact on the environment

and says she opts for New Zealand made or Fair Trade.

Adapting to climate change

A new report released by Lincoln University and Westpac

NZ finds agile farm management will be critical in

reducing emissions and adapting to climate change.

Authored by Lincoln University’s

Agribusiness and Economics Research

Unit on behalf of Westpac, The

Westpac NZ Agribusiness Climate

Change Report assesses the risks

and opportunities presented by

climate change, as well as the sector’s

vulnerabilities and potential responses.

Westpac NZ Head of Agribusiness

Tim Henshaw says the report and a

series of factsheets were designed to

provide Westpac customers and other

farmers and growers with impartial

information about the way climate

change may affect their location and

type of production, and how they can

respond.

“Importantly, the report finds

there is already a range of existing

management options available to assist

farmers in strengthening the physical

resilience of their farming systems

and meeting New Zealand’s 2030

agriculture climate targets, with only a

few requiring an initial investment of

capital.

“However, applying these options

more widely will require uptake of best

practice farm management. This may

require a significant uplift in skills and

training to ensure a greater number

of farmers have sufficient expertise to

both reduce emissions and adapt to

climate change.”

Mr Henshaw says the report makes

information relevant to farmers and

growers by exploring credible case

studies. He says the optimal response

to climate change will be different for

every producer.

“There is no single off-the-shelf

solution. I’d encourage primary

producers to think about how the

climate is changing in their part of

the country, and what effect that will

have on production. They also need

to consider what expertise they have

available to adapt their operations, and

plan to fill that gap if it exists.”

Mr Henshaw says the report also

explores the opportunities that

may arise for producers that adapt

quickly. “In some cases, land may

become suitable for different types of

production that were not previously

viable.”

In another finding, the report also

assesses the way de-stocking combined

with improved productivity can help

both reduce emissions and maintain

profitability. He says many initiatives

should be regarded as ‘win-win’ as

they will have side benefits such as

improving soil health or biodiversity.

The report was produced

as part of a wider body of

work undertaken by Lincoln

University for Westpac NZ

looking at the impact of

climate change on agriculture

in New Zealand.

Mr Henshaw says Westpac can play a

key role as a lender in helping farmers

and growers prepare for a warmer

future.

“Earlier this year we launched a pilot

of our new Sustainable Agribusiness

Loans with a small group of farming

customers. The loan is the first of its

kind to require a customer to meet all

parts of the Sustainable Agriculture

Finance Initiative guidance. This

guidance includes practices to

reduce emissions, improve long-term

resilience and deliver more sustainable

outcomes in terms of water, waste,

pollution and ecosystems.”

Once farmers commit to meet the

guidance, they have two years to

achieve that goal and will be supported

with discounted loan pricing.

Westpac plans to make the loan

available to its agri customers in 2023.

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

Rural land could be your

next big investment

Land development is typically thought

of as housing, but it’s forests that are the

hot opportunity right now for investors.

If you’ve never thought of selling or

developing your land as a forestry

investment, now’s the time to find out more.

Rural landowners may be sitting

on unused land or land they consider

“unsuitable” for other developments due to

typograhy, but could be subdivided to plant

new forests for carbon emissions trading,

earning between $7k-14k per hectare

income every year for 15-50 years.

What are Carbon Credits anyway?

You may not be aware that carbon credits

are actually trees at work, pulling out

carbon dioxide (CO2) from our atmosphere

to store it in their trunks, and release

oxygen in exchange. One carbon credit

is measured by one tonne of CO2 being

exchanged. Landowners in the Emissions

Trading Scheme (ETS) can earn carbon

credits by planting new forests, and earn

revenue every year until the trees are felled

and replanted. Businesses who emit high

levels of Co2 through their operations

can purchase carbon credits each year to

off-set the carbon they produce with the

CO2 being taken in & stored by trees. New

targets for businesses to be “carbon neutral”

(have the same level of carbon being

removed as they put into the atmosphere)

means that demand for credits, and land for

forests, is on the rise.

Cost & Returns

In 2023 new ETS regulations will allow

species such as fast growing radiata pine to

be included in the scheme, creating exciting

new investment opportunities. A hectare

of radiata pines costs around $10-40k to

establish, and will return around 75 credits

for 16 years, that’s about $6675/ha per year,

at current credit rates. Forests planted with

hardwood indigenous species are even more

attractive to investors, and would earn

around 220 credits per year. The NZU price

for credits doubled from around $35 in late

2020 to over $89 earlier this year and set to

continue to rise.

Land owners get digging!

If you are a rural landowner or land

investor, now’s the time to find out more.

Survus+Rural specialises in helping

landowners realise the potential of their

rural land through surveying, and we can

help put you on the path to developing your

land for forestry investment. Get in touch

to find out what investment opportunities

could be hidden under your dirt.

Call Survus+Rural on 0800 787 775 for a

chat and to find out more.

GARDENING 49

Keep moisture levels up during heat

IT’S NOW LESS than a month to

harvest summer vegetables and

prepare the garden for Christmas

and New Year holidays.

Houseplant care

As many houseplants originate

from tropical countries, they

grow best in the warmer summer

New Zealand months. Water and

fertilise regularly to take advantage

of this growing season. There

are now a wide range of houseplants

available so be adventurous

in trying to grow some new,

exotic specimens.

Vegetable garden

All summer vegetables are

making very rapid growth and,

in many cases, providing food

for the table. With quick maturing

vegetables such as dwarf

beans and radishes, sow limited

amounts at three to four week

intervals. Vegetables to harvest

include asparagus (the last for the

season), beetroot, beans, cabbage,

carrots, lettuce, onion, silver beet

and spinach.

For late summer harvesting,

continue to plant or sow, beans,

beetroot, cabbage, carrots, corn,

cucumbers, onions, radishes,

lettuce, silver beet, tomatoes, and

zucchini. As these vegetables will

be growing during the hottest

months of the year, extra care

in preparing the soil is essential.

Add large quantities of compost

THIRSTY: Regular, deep watering is key to your plants

surviving summer.

to the existing soil to help with

water retention in February/

March. A side dressing of vegetable

fertiliser will help encourage

strong, healthy plant growth. Irrigate

the vegetables when required

and in adequate quantities.

In the flower bed

Summer flower gardens should

be well established by now

providing superb displays of

flowers. Dead head (the removal

of finished flowers) as required.

Water regularly as the soil begins

to dry out. Additional plantings

of the following summer annuals

can be made alyssum, aster, celosia,

cosmos, marigold, petunia,

salvia, strawflower, portulaca and

zinnias.

Strawberries

December is the main harvest

time for strawberries, hopefully

enough for Christmas lunch.

Cover the plants with bird netting

securely to keep away our

feathered friends. Water when

required as temperatures rise and

the soil dries. Maintain a layer of

clean crushed bark around plants

and inspect them regularly for

signs of botrytis – a grey fungus

mould that affects the fruit.

Raspberries

December is the main month

for harvesting raspberries, pick

the fruit as they ripen on the

canes. Where there is excessive

growth of new canes, remove

the weaker ones. Tie up canes to

wires or a wooden fence.

Fruit trees

A further application of fertiliser

can be made early in the

month. Some light pruning on

pip and stone fruit trees may be

required where there are unwanted

branches and to improve

provide airflow throughout the

tree. With very young trees irrigate

regularly to encourage a

strong, deep root system.

Rose care

Towards the end of the month

the early seasons flowering will be

completed, except with roses like

iceberg that just continue flowering

all summer. With other roses

a light ‘tidy up’ prune will stimulate

new growth that in turn will

produce more summer blooms.

Early December is the correct

time to apply a final amount of

rose fertiliser. Fertilising can

recommence again in March as

temperatures cool somewhat.

Continue adding compost around

the base of bush and climbing

roses, which works as both mulch

and a soil conditioner.

Lawns

Many lawns dry very quickly

towards the end of the month

and should be watered frequently

(best done in the evening to

maximise water usage). Avoid

cutting the lawn too close as this

causes the lawn to dry out even

quicker.

Herbs

Should be incredibly abundant

at this time of the year with some

exceptionally vigorous growing

herbs, trim lightly if you are not

using them. Plant additional parsley

and chives as required. Basil

will now thrive with increased

temperatures.

Preparing your garden

Have a plan for your garden

if you are heading away. Water

is the most crucial element in

ensuring your plants survive

summer. Invest in a water timer

or ask neighbours to water your

garden deeply a few times a week.

Before you leave, harvest

anything that is almost ripe and

ensure plants that need support

are well staked and secured.

Weed your garden so they are not

competing with your plants for

water, then add a generous layer

of mulch to help keep soil moist.

Inside, put your indoor plants

in a bathtub with a small amount

of water at the bottom. Ensure

there is drainage holes in the

pots so the plant can take up the

water.

Christmas is just around the corner...

So now is the time to focus on getting your

garden and outdoor entertainment area

sorted in time to enjoy over summer. Top

up the gardens, add some mulch or create

some raised beds. If sitting by a fire and

toasting marshmallows is your thing, why

not create an area with a fire pit? This will

add a real statement and create a cosy

WHAT’S THE

OUTLOOK FOR THE CANTERBURY

RURAL LIFESTYLE PROPERTY

Market

THIS SUMMER…

Summer 2022

Summer should provide above normal temps and near

normal or below rain fall, with soil moisture levels below

normal, according to the seasonal forecasts.

So, whilst the outlook maybe promising, prudent planning and

feed management is still required as we know the impact the

climate can have on our rural communities, particularly our

farming families.

The hot conditions experienced in the New Zealand property

market through the last few years, now seems a distant past…

however our local Canterbury rural lifestyle market seems

to continue to buck this trend with prices currently holding

steady. Whilst the number of overall sales is considerably down

from the booming market times, this is somewhat due to the

lack of available properties in the market, with people often

holding onto their treasured lifestyle properties and enjoying

them, demand is still strong, especially for quality well-located

properties with good access to the motorway system. With

continuing upwards pressure on interest rates and affordability

issues driven by inflation it may be that any price gains over

coming year slow considerably, and with an election towards

the end of next year we can expect some uncertainty to creep

into the market.

If you are considering selling, it’s a great time to present

your property with the vigorous growth of our Spring months

highlighting some breath-taking rural lifestyle properties.

Our agents get you more, with the largest real estate

network in Canterbury our Harcourts team provides greater

exposure for your rural lifestyle property, talk to one of team of

Rural Lifestyle Specialists, “your country partner” today about

a free appraisal of your property.

This November we were again proud to be the major sponsor

of the North Canterbury Wine Region Charity Golf Day at

Pegasus Golf and Sports Cub, helping the North Canterbury

Rural Support Trust, locals helping locals. The Trust is set up

to assist rural individuals and their families to get back on their

feet and is linked into local rural networks and can help people

facing challenging circumstances, such as financial, personal,

or climatic adverse events like drought, flood, or heavy snow.

Rolleston 2/652 Springston Rolleston Road

Calling all builders, developers and land bankers!

Here is a wonderful opportunity to secure a 12619m2 of prime land, perfectly located within the heart of Rolleston.

This land is already zoned Residential, meaning the options here are aplenty. The 1990s built, 240m2 5 bedroom brick

home features good sized open plan living areas with an updated kitchen. The living areas flow nicely to an outdoor

patio area, which provides a wonderful space for enjoying summer evenings with family or entertaining friends. The

master bedroom is a good size and is complete with an ensuite and walk in robe. The 4 additional bedrooms are all

doubles with robes. A comfortable home that provides purchasers options to either incorporate this home into a

future development, utilise the home as either a rental or owner occupy if looking at this as a landbank opportunity, or

simply remove and utilise the entire block as a blank canvas for development. For those looking at this as a land

banking opportunity, the land itself is well set up into two paddocks and there are shedding options on the property.

This really is a mini-lifestyle property in the middle of town! There are substantial developments going on within the

immediate vicinity of this property and it is no secret that Rolleston continues to grow in popularity and in-fill

developments such as this are going to become harder and harder to find.
