Arson, fake 111 calls,<br />

crime spree<br />

offender<br />

in court<br />

• By Emily Moorhouse<br />

A 21-YEAR-OLD man made<br />

three false calls to emergency<br />

services within a week and even<br />

started lighting his own fires,<br />

rushing back to his crime scene<br />

to film the firefighters in action<br />

after he raised the alarm.<br />

Caleb Pope was sentenced on<br />

a lengthy list of charges relating<br />

to arson and burglary last week.<br />

Pope called Fire and<br />

Emergency NZ four times<br />

between <strong>March</strong> and June<br />

last year, falsely claiming<br />

he could see smoke coming<br />

from Hammer Hardware and<br />

The Famous Grouse Hotel in<br />

Lincoln, he could see a vehicle<br />

in the Waimakariri River,<br />

and he could also see smoke<br />

coming from a petrol station in<br />

Christchurch.<br />

Fire fighters attended each<br />

call but could not find any<br />

smoke or vehicle in the river<br />

and classified them as false<br />

calls.<br />

On <strong>March</strong> 28 last year Pope<br />

started a small vegetation fire<br />

on the side of Rolleston Rd then<br />

called Fenz, which attended<br />

and put it out. He did this again<br />

on May 27 on Days Rd.<br />

A week later Pope drove,<br />

while forbidden from driving,<br />

to a Repco store in Hornby at<br />

8.30pm.<br />

He approached a mediumsized<br />

rubbish skip and using a<br />

lighter, set several bits of paper<br />

on fire before throwing them in<br />

the skip.<br />

THE TONGUES have<br />

been wagging over the big<br />

this week – the merger of<br />

the Lincoln and Rolleston<br />

division 1 teams (see page 3).<br />

It appears few saw it coming.<br />

A merger was always<br />

going to be a last resort as<br />

player numbers dwindled at<br />

Lincoln but the big surprise<br />

was it’s with Rolleston.<br />

ELLESMERE RUGBY chiefs<br />

want clubs to be more honest<br />

about their playing numbers<br />

after two division 1 sides<br />

surprisingly merged just<br />

weeks out from the start of the<br />

competition.<br />

Lincoln and Rolleston will play<br />

as one this season after Lincoln’s<br />

squad fell apart with retirements,<br />

injuries and<br />

players heading<br />

overseas.<br />

Lincoln<br />

approached<br />

Rolleston club<br />

officials last<br />

Tuesday about<br />

Chris<br />

Thornley<br />

the possibility<br />

of merging,<br />

then met on<br />

Wednesday and, after discussing<br />

it with players on Thursday, it<br />

was a done deal.<br />

Ellesmere sub union chairman<br />

Chris Thornley said the late notice<br />

of what was happening was<br />

frustrating as the draw for the<br />

season which starts on April 1<br />

had been done with Lincoln and<br />

Rolleston as separate teams.<br />

It would now have to be redone,<br />

he said.<br />

“We are a bit concerned clubs<br />

have not been honest (about<br />

playing numbers). There’s a little<br />

bit of frustration as it is such a<br />

complicated thing to do draws.”<br />

The sub union has sent an<br />

email to all clubs asking they be<br />

more up front in future.<br />

“If you (clubs) are flying<br />

close to the wind (with player<br />

numbers) we need to know what<br />

plans they might have,” Thornley<br />

said.<br />

Lincoln has been one of the<br />

power houses in Ellesmere rugby<br />

over the decades with its name<br />

etched many times on the sub<br />

union’s most prized trophy, the<br />

Coleman Shield.<br />

Lincoln president Corran<br />

Pywell said he expected the<br />

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

merger would be for one season<br />

as the club built up player<br />

numbers for the future.<br />

“It’s an end of an era, with<br />

players from<br />

last year<br />

retiring, having<br />

operations<br />

from last year’s<br />

injuries, work<br />

commitments,<br />

and players<br />

going on OE,”<br />

he said.<br />

“It’s for one<br />

season, as we have colts and div<br />

2 players coming up next season,<br />

just one year too early for them<br />

now.”<br />

Pywell said the players made<br />

the final decision to merge with<br />

Rolleston and the club’s board<br />

backed them.<br />

The new side will be coached<br />

by Bevan Sisson and Jody Smith,<br />

who had been appointed to<br />

coach Lincoln.<br />

Rolleston club president Nicky<br />

Ruki said their coach from last<br />

year Matt Cawley would also be<br />

part of the line-up.<br />

This week may also determine<br />

what the side will be called –<br />

Lincoln-Rolleston or Rolleston-<br />

of the side would be Lincoln-<br />

Rolleston, she said.<br />

“They did approach us,” she<br />

said when asked which club<br />

needed the other most.<br />

Ruki said Rolleston could have<br />

fielded a team this season, but it<br />

would not have been strong and<br />

the club wanted a competitive<br />

side. The Lincoln merger suited<br />

both, she said.<br />

However, Rolleston was<br />

viewing the relationship as more<br />

than a one-year deal, said Ruki.<br />

Rolleston will field an under-18<br />

team for the first time in five<br />

years with plans to carry these<br />

players over the next few seasons.<br />

The Famous Grouse Hotel<br />

hopefully be worked out this<br />

for division 1 players.<br />

Rubbish set ablaze to film firefighters<br />

•From page 1<br />

The fire engulfed the rubbish<br />

inside the skip, causing severe<br />

damage to the bin.<br />

Pope fled the scene, called<br />

Fenz and then returned when the<br />

firefighters arrived to film them<br />

in action.<br />

When questioned by police<br />

Pope said he was burning his<br />

court paperwork.<br />

Assistant District Commander<br />

Steve Kennedy said Fenz worked<br />

with police in relation to several<br />

incidents involving Pope.<br />

“False or malicious 111 calls<br />

go through the same process as<br />

all 111 calls, which means that<br />

they end up taking up valuable<br />

time of not only our 111 Fire<br />

Communication Centre staff but<br />

also the crews that respond to<br />

the calls,” he said.<br />

Kennedy said if crews were<br />

responding to false calls that<br />

would mean they are generally<br />

unavailable for any genuine calls<br />

that may come in.<br />

Pope also faced burglary<br />

charges involving stealing from<br />

his elderly neighbour, who was<br />

in hospital. He and an associate<br />

stole a barbecue, a heavy-duty<br />

vice, a table, a bench seat, a<br />

compressor and a vintage engine<br />

from the man’s shed.<br />

Everything was sold on Facebook<br />

marketplace to unknown<br />

people, except for the heavy-duty<br />

FALSE ALARM: Caleb Pope, 21, called 111 falsely claiming<br />

smoke was coming out of The Famous Grouse Hotel and<br />

Hammer Hardware in Lincoln.<br />

vice which was recovered during<br />

a search of Pope’s house.<br />

Between June 17-20 last year,<br />

Pope and the same associate<br />

broke into a construction site in<br />

Wigram.<br />

Pope had a set of master keys<br />

and used them to unlock a digger<br />

for his associate to climb in<br />

and begin digging holes in the<br />

ground.<br />

The pair then stole two heavyduty<br />

digger ramps, hard hats<br />

and strops from the construction<br />

site before advertising them on<br />

Facebook marketplace.<br />

Pope and his associate also<br />

broke into a Christchurch City<br />

Council-owned sports building<br />

in Wigram, stealing a football<br />

launcher. This was later recovered<br />

at Pope’s address.<br />

Between October 2021 and<br />

January 2022 Pope was employed<br />

by a construction and engineering<br />

firm but only worked a total<br />

of nine days before quitting.<br />

After termination of employment,<br />

all employees are to cease<br />

use of company accounts but on<br />

four separate occasions, Pope<br />

used the account to purchase<br />

builder’s tools. He spent a total of<br />

$2702 at Bunnings Warehouse in<br />

Shirley and Mitre10 in Papanui.<br />

On July 6 last year Pope was<br />

working for a different construction<br />

company through a temping<br />

agency.<br />

Between 4-8pm, he drove to<br />

a construction site in Lincoln<br />

where he had been working and<br />

cut and ripped out copper cables<br />

from the ground. He also stole a<br />

hydrant stand, tools and a strop.<br />

That same night Pope was<br />

stopped by police driving a large<br />

tanker truck from the construction<br />

company during a time he<br />

was forbidden from driving. He<br />

also admitted to police that he<br />

didn’t have permission from his<br />

employers to drive the truck.<br />

Pope was given a sentence of<br />

15 months which could be served<br />

as home detention if he could<br />

find a suitable address, Judge<br />

Quentin Hix told him.<br />

Pope’s lawyer Sabrina Forrester<br />

said her client had a challenging<br />

upbringing with family members<br />

being in and out of prison, which<br />

was normalised in his youth.<br />

She said violence, mental<br />

health concerns and a mistrust<br />

of police had significantly shaped<br />

Pope’s perspective and could be<br />

connected to his offending.<br />

Forrester told the judge Pope<br />

was a vulnerable young man who<br />

had already been assaulted in<br />

prison and now understands the<br />

consequences of his actions.<br />

Judge Hix gave Pope discounts<br />

for his youth, remorse, challenging<br />

upbringing and mental<br />

health issues.<br />

He expressed his concern<br />

for Pope who was unable to<br />

find a suitable address to serve<br />

his sentence as one of home<br />

detention.<br />

“I just really worry because<br />

there’s nowhere for you to go<br />

to get out,” he told Pope before<br />

remanding him in custody.<br />

WHEN THE <strong>Selwyn</strong> Sounds<br />

music festival starts at 11am on<br />

Saturday at Lincoln Domain, 10<br />

truckloads of gear weighing 70<br />

tonnes will be in place.<br />

Event director David Parlane<br />

says the crew has spent the<br />

last week erecting fencing and<br />

preparing the venue to welcome<br />

the crowd.<br />

“We will be at capacity on<br />

Saturday,” he said. “It’s all<br />

consuming at the moment, but all<br />

is calm and everything is falling<br />

into place at it should.”<br />

The main stage was in at 6am<br />

on Monday, fresh from being<br />

used at Electric Avenue in Hagley<br />

Park over the weekend.<br />

“As soon as it finished on<br />

Saturday evening the stage was<br />

dismantled. It is on two very large<br />

trucks and once the trucks are in<br />

place, supports are put down, and<br />

the roof gets put on. It is a two<br />

day job to get the stage in place<br />

before we can start hanging lights,<br />

speakers, screens all those sorts of<br />

things.”<br />

“It’s a bit like a jigsaw puzzle,<br />

you’ve got to start with the edges<br />

then you’ve got to work your way<br />

around.”<br />

Parlane and his business<br />

partner launched <strong>Selwyn</strong> Sounds<br />

in 2<strong>01</strong>7. Covid-19 restrictions<br />

forced the festival to be cancelled<br />

a month before it was to take<br />

place last year. Parlane said even<br />

though the team has run the<br />

event successfully over the years<br />

it has gone ahead, there is never<br />

room for complacency.<br />

To make events like this run<br />

like clockwork there is more<br />

going on in the preparation which<br />

members of the public generally<br />

never see.<br />

Sound checks for example.<br />

All bands except Blam Blam<br />

Blam will have arrived by Friday<br />

“The first sound check is<br />

Blam Blam Blam are due<br />

and take two days to fully pack<br />

up. “You wouldn’t know there had<br />

to pack it in, and a couple of days<br />

to pack it out,” Parlane said.<br />

From hospital nurse<br />

Karin Bos was a nurse at<br />

Christchurch Hospital for 20<br />

years. Now she cares for<br />

some of the most precious<br />

wildlife in Canterbury.<br />

Heidi Slade reports<br />

KAITORETE IS one of the<br />

region’s hidden, natural gems.<br />

The 25km spit runs south-west<br />

from near Birdlings Flat along<br />

the southern edge of Te Waihora/<br />

Lake Ellesmere.<br />

Home to banded dotterel,<br />

ground-nesting birds such as<br />

oystercatchers and endangered<br />

native spiders like katipō, as<br />

well as skinks and two species<br />

of flightless moth, the area is<br />

also populated with pests such<br />

as hedgehogs, mustelids,<br />

possums and feral cats.<br />

Bos has been working for Pest<br />

Free Banks Peninsula for 20<br />

months on various projects. She<br />

is now based at Kaitorete as a<br />

dog handler for its conservation<br />

dog programme.<br />

‘‘I’m excited to be a part of such<br />

an enormous, amazing goal,’’<br />

said Bos who lives in Little River.<br />

Since December, she has<br />

worked with Mobab, a threeand-a-half-year-old<br />

border terrier<br />

trained to track hedgehogs.<br />

Recently the pair were<br />

joined by Terry, a 20-month-old<br />

welsh springer spaniel trained to<br />

track down feral cats. PFBP has<br />

‘‘We are hoping that Pest Free<br />

Kaitorete is one of two areas<br />

In Kaitorete, it aims to ‘‘get rid<br />

of possums, cats, stoats, ferrets,<br />

weasels and hedgehogs.’’<br />

to looking after wildlife<br />

In the other focus area –<br />

the extended wild side of<br />

Banks Peninsula – PFBP<br />

is working to get rid of all<br />

possums and drop mustelid<br />

and feral cat numbers to 20<br />

per cent of what they were<br />

when the branch began.<br />

‘‘We are the only Predator<br />

Free 2050 project that is<br />

targeting that many species at<br />

once,’’ Sjoberg said.<br />

After spending 20 years<br />

as a surgical and cardiology<br />

nurse at Christchurch<br />

Hospital, Bos said she<br />

decided to pursue her<br />

passion for conservation fulltime.<br />

She has found what she calls<br />

‘‘the ultimate job.’’<br />

Sjoberg said PFBP is<br />

‘‘blessed’’ to have Bos.<br />

‘‘Her strength<br />

is communication and being<br />

able to work under pressure,’’<br />

which he says comes from her<br />

work as a nurse.<br />

He also praises her ‘‘detailed<br />

and concise approach.’’<br />

It helps Bos to get in touch<br />

with the dogs and understand<br />

their behaviours.<br />

Mabob and Terry live with<br />

Bos on her property, which<br />

she likes to call their ‘‘palace.’’<br />

She said they benefit from<br />

living with their handler as it<br />

helps the dogs develop a much<br />

FUN: Karin Bos takes a break at the beach with Mabob (inset).<br />

stronger bond with her.<br />

They are also expensive,<br />

highly-trained animals, so it is<br />

important to keep them safe.<br />

Sjoberg said ‘‘knowing the<br />

dog intimately so that the wag<br />

of a tail or scratch of an ear’’<br />

indicates they are close to a<br />

pest is important.<br />

‘‘These are the little signs<br />

that Karin needs to pick up<br />

on and she’s so good at that.<br />

‘‘I was just blown away<br />

with how much those dogs<br />

love Karin.’’<br />

While no two days are<br />

the same, Bos will check<br />

the ‘‘remote reporting<br />

network’’ daily to see<br />

which of PFBPs numerous<br />

live capture traps have been<br />

set off, she said. After her and<br />

the dogs investigate, she then<br />

lets them sniff out other<br />

predators. ‘‘They are detection<br />

dogs (and) they are pointing<br />

the animal out to me . . .<br />

I’m the one in charge of what’s<br />

happening to the animals’’<br />

Bos said.<br />

Training the dogs takes<br />

20 to 24 months and<br />

involves expert trainer Billy<br />

Barton from Hawea. Barton<br />

specialises in training dogs for<br />

conservation purposes.<br />

Daughter fights for stake<br />

in mother’s $20m estate<br />

Racecourse Hill<br />

Homestead in Darfield<br />

has featured in a High<br />

Court case over a<br />

family fortune. Tara<br />

Shaskey reports<br />

A WOMAN who amassed a<br />

fortune of at least $20 million<br />

with her husband, promised her<br />

three adult children a future of<br />

financial security – but not a cent<br />

was left to them when she died.<br />

All of Libby Glass’ riches were<br />

instead left to her husband,<br />

Denver Glass, and to charities.<br />

Now one of Libby’s daughters,<br />

Lisa Knight, has turned to the<br />

court to fight for a stake in her<br />

mother’s estate, claiming she<br />

had been guaranteed at least $1<br />

million.<br />

High Court Justice Rachel<br />

Dunningham heard the<br />

application and granted Knight<br />

leave to bring a claim for division<br />

of the estate.<br />

The judgment on the property<br />

relationship war tells the sad tale<br />

of a blended family crippled by<br />

broken relationships within.<br />

Libby and Denver, of<br />

Christchurch, tied the knot in<br />

1987. It was the second marriage<br />

for both of them. While they<br />

never had children together, the<br />

couple each has children from<br />

their first marriage.<br />

Denver had four children and<br />

Libby three: Nicole, Lisa and<br />

Stephen.<br />

When the couple first got<br />

together, Denver owned a home<br />

in Yaldhurst, which he retained<br />

after separating from his first<br />

wife. The newlyweds lived there<br />

until they sold the home in 1995.<br />

In the decades that followed,<br />

Denver’s meat processing<br />

businesses flourished and Libby<br />

established a fashion boutique<br />

in Merivale, known as Posh of<br />

Holmwood.<br />

The couple built a sizeable<br />

asset base through Denver’s<br />

businesses as well as through<br />

acquiring, renovating and selling<br />

opulent Christchurch character<br />

houses.<br />

The properties included a<br />

homestead at Racecourse Hill,<br />

on West Coast Rd in Darfield;<br />

the Greystones, Banks Ave; and<br />

the historic mansion Daresbury<br />

in Fendalton.<br />

Racecourse Hill has nine<br />

bedrooms and sits on 25.8ha. It<br />

was originally built in 1912.<br />

Libby and Denver lived in the<br />

properties while doing them up,<br />

using Libby’s passion for interior<br />

design. They also owned holiday<br />

homes in Akaroa. Each time<br />

they purchased a new house<br />

a trust was set up to own the<br />

property.<br />

Following the earthquakes, the<br />

couple created a plan for their<br />

estate, which the decision said<br />

was worth at least $20 million at<br />

the time of Libby’s death in 2020.<br />

As noted in the court<br />

document, Denver<br />

acknowledged he and Libby<br />

planned to give each child $1<br />

million during their lifetimes,<br />

instead of an inheritance.<br />

“They intended the money<br />

would be used to acquire family<br />

homes, or to pay off borrowing<br />

on such homes, and that the<br />

property acquired would then<br />

form an inheritance for each of<br />

their children’s family unit.”<br />

The balance left after assisting<br />

their children was to enable<br />

Libby and Denver to live in<br />

comfort and on their deaths to<br />

benefit charities.<br />

In their mutual wills, executed<br />

in 2<strong>01</strong>8, Libby left her chattels<br />

to Denver to distribute them<br />

“as he saw fit” to her children<br />

in accordance with wishes she<br />

made known to him before she<br />

died.<br />

She noted in her will that,<br />

other than personal chattels,<br />

she had intentionally not made<br />

any financial provisions for<br />

her children or grandchildren,<br />

or Denver’s, due to the family<br />

being “adequately provided”<br />

for through family trusts and<br />

personally by her.<br />

Knight’s sister Nicole<br />

supported her claim to the<br />

High Court, while their brother<br />

Stephen did not.<br />

Nicole confirmed their mother<br />

had promised each child would<br />

receive at least $1 million as an<br />

advance inheritance.<br />

But actually the money had<br />

not been gifted to the children<br />

directly and was instead invested<br />

into property owned by Libby<br />

and Denver, in which the<br />

children could live.<br />

FAMILY: The Racecourse<br />

Hill Homestead near<br />

Darfield was part of Libby<br />

Glass’ $20 million estate.<br />

Her daughter Lisa Knight is<br />

fighting for a stake in the<br />

estate and claims she had<br />

been guaranteed at least<br />

$1 million.<br />

Nicole, who fell out with<br />

Denver and Libby in the years<br />

leading up to Libby’s death,<br />

occupied a property in Australia<br />

with help from the couple and<br />

Stephen had a home bought for<br />

him in Christchurch.<br />

Knight and her children were<br />

provided an $800,000 home, also<br />

in Christchurch, for which she<br />

met the costs of rates, insurance,<br />

repairs and maintenance.<br />

“[Knight] agreed that it<br />

would be put into a trust, with<br />

Libby and Denver as two of the<br />

three trustees, although she<br />

understood the house would be<br />

hers when Libby and Denver<br />

died,” the decision said.<br />

But when Knight and her<br />

then-fiance purchased a home<br />

together in 2<strong>01</strong>7, she wanted to<br />

sell the Christchurch property in<br />

order to release her capital.<br />

Denver refused to sell the<br />

Christchurch property unless<br />

he was registered as an owner of<br />

their new home.<br />

The decision said Knight<br />

was unable to contribute to the<br />

purchase price of their new home<br />

and the couple were “forced” to<br />

sell it at a loss.<br />

In order to extricate herself<br />

from financial control, Knight<br />

later negotiated a change to<br />

the ownership structure of the<br />

Christchurch house.<br />

She received a sizeable<br />

payment in return for being<br />

removed as a beneficiary to the<br />

trust controlling the house and<br />

by agreeing not to bring any<br />

claims against Libby’s estate.<br />

Hopes dashed as pumpkin smashed<br />

• By Darryl Baser<br />

WITH SIX weeks until the<br />

weigh-in for a friendly giant<br />

pumpkin growing competition a<br />

serious contender has fallen out<br />

of contention – literally.<br />

Giant Pumpkins of Prebbleton<br />

organiser Marcus Peters is in<br />

his third year of growing the<br />

oversized vegetable, but has<br />

suffered a setback after a 50kg<br />

pumpkin fell from a home-made<br />

hammock and smashed into<br />

pieces.<br />

“I had this great vision of<br />

growing a pumpkin vine up and<br />

on to the roof,” he said.<br />

“I thought: ‘Wow, wouldn’t it<br />

be cool if I could pull off growing<br />

a giant pumpkin on the roof’,<br />

and I was there. But one didn’t<br />

quite make it to the roof it was<br />

hanging near the guttering, so<br />

I had an elaborate sling system,<br />

but one of the hooks failed as the<br />

pumpkin was 50kg.<br />

“Building a structure was on<br />

the day’s to-do list, then I heard<br />

thump, I just knew what had<br />

happened, and my heart sank.”<br />

However he still has “a couple<br />

of other contenders” – including<br />

a large green pumpkin which<br />

he discovered in his 250sq<br />

m pumpkin patch as he was<br />

cleaning up the remains of his<br />

broken potential prize winner.<br />

Twelve people have so far<br />

expressed interest in growing<br />

pumpkins to enter the friendly<br />

weigh-in.<br />

“It is the first year of this<br />

community based effort, but<br />

there’s definitely enough people<br />

taking part to give it a presence<br />

at the market in April,” Peters<br />

said.<br />

Prebbleton resident Helen<br />

Goy is hoping to grow a huge<br />

pumpkin this season, and is<br />

enjoying learning more about the<br />

process while having a bit of fun.<br />

“I bought the seeds at a<br />

fundraiser for the Prebbleton<br />

School PTA last year, and I hope<br />

my green fingers will help me get<br />

there, it’s a lot of fun.”<br />

DAMAGED:<br />

Marcus<br />

Peters felt<br />

this pumpkin<br />

had a chance<br />

of winning<br />

the weigh-in<br />

until it fell off<br />

a hammock<br />

and split in<br />

two.<br />

Right – Helen<br />

Goy in her<br />

pumpkin<br />

patch.<br />

She says her husband Alan<br />

is more of a gardener, but with<br />

this event she’s stepping out of<br />

her comfort zone of growing<br />

pot plants indoors, and says so<br />

far her two potential giants are<br />

doing well.<br />

“I check them every day and<br />

they seem to have grown more<br />

overnight, one is about the size<br />

of a watermelon at the moment,<br />

and I’ve just found another one<br />

so I’ve made tents and beds for<br />

them to keep their heads and<br />

little bottoms dry.”<br />

Peters says the changeable<br />

weather has had a significant<br />

effect this year. “Pumpkins need<br />

consistent heat, but it has been<br />

hot then wet, then hot and wet,<br />

and recently colder than usual,<br />

so we’ve had a few fatalities along<br />

the way, as pumpkin succumb to<br />

mildew or rot.”<br />

•The pumpkins are<br />

set to be weighed and<br />

judged at the Prebbleton<br />

Community Market on<br />

the corner of Springs and<br />

Blakes Rds on April 2.<br />

Former inmate’s evidence heard<br />

• By Kurt Bayer<br />

A FRESHLY released inmate<br />

met with a potential murder<br />

suspect and serving prison guard<br />

twice David Benbow while a<br />

police investigation was at its<br />

height but denied helping cover<br />

his tracks, a court heard this<br />

week.<br />

Ex-Corrections officer<br />

Benbow, 54, who is standing<br />

trial for the alleged murder<br />

of Halswell builder Michael<br />

McGrath who disappeared on<br />

May 22, 2<strong>01</strong>7, and whose body<br />

has never been found, was an old<br />

school and rugby league mate of<br />

Rua Pomare.<br />

The High Court in<br />

Christchurch heard a statement<br />

from Pomare, who has died since<br />

talking to police in 2<strong>01</strong>7.<br />

He had talked about knowing<br />

both Benbow and McGrath for<br />

most of his life, growing up in<br />

Halswell.<br />

Pomare had gone to<br />

kindergarten, primary and high<br />

school with Benbow, playing<br />

league and fishing in their teens<br />

at Lyttelton wharf, Diamond<br />

Harbour, at Birdlings Flat, even<br />

flatting together a couple of<br />

times.<br />

He’d never seen Benbow<br />

become aggressive except on a<br />

rugby league field, he told police.<br />

Pomare did a stint in prison,<br />

the court heard, from July 2<strong>01</strong>4<br />

to April 2<strong>01</strong>7.<br />

The friends hadn’t had any<br />

contact while he was inside<br />

but in February or <strong>March</strong> 2<strong>01</strong>7<br />

Pomare had been in the visitors’<br />

yard when he looked up and<br />

saw Benbow in prison guard<br />

uniform, the court heard.<br />

They both got a shock but<br />

chatted for a few minutes – about<br />

how Benbow had become a<br />

prison guard, how his children<br />

were, “general stuff” - before<br />

Benbow was called away.<br />

Once he was released from<br />

prison, Pomare said he hadn’t<br />

had any contact with Benbow<br />

until he saw in the media that<br />

JUSTICE: David Benbow is standing trial for the alleged murder of Michael McGrath (inset).<br />

PHOTOS: KAI SCHWOERER, STUFF, POOL<br />

McGrath had gone missing and<br />

Benbow was being named as a<br />

person of interest.<br />

He texted Benbow and said he<br />

was going to his mother’s house<br />

on Queen’s Birthday if he wanted<br />

to catch up.<br />

Benbow showed up on a<br />

pushbike, the court heard,<br />

and they chatted for 30-45<br />

minutes, about how he was<br />

handling things, why police<br />

were searching his Candys<br />

Rd property, and how he was<br />

“frustrated” about the situation.<br />

“I could see it was affecting<br />

him,” Pomare told police.<br />

He asked him directly: “What<br />

did you do with him?”<br />

Benbow replied that he didn’t<br />

do it, the court heard.<br />

He reportedly told Pomare<br />

STREETSTOcK STATE Of ORigin<br />

that police were looking up the<br />

wrong tree, which he took it to<br />

mean that he was innocent.<br />

Benbow also allegedly told<br />

Pomare that one of his children<br />

had seen their mother, his<br />

former partner Joanna Green,<br />

who had left him on <strong>March</strong><br />

3, kissing McGrath and had<br />

seemed “very pissed off”.<br />

The old friends caught up<br />

cAnTERBURY SUpER SALOOn chAmpS<br />

SATURDAY mARch 4Th<br />

RAcing STARTS 6.30pm<br />

+<br />

again on July 2 after Pomare sent<br />

him another text message, the<br />

court heard.<br />

Again at the house of Pomare’s<br />

mother, they chatted and again<br />

the “obvious question” for<br />

Pomare was whether he had<br />

killed McGrath.<br />

Benbow reportedly replied<br />

“no”.<br />

Pomare later denied doing<br />

anything to assist Benbow,<br />

the court heard. His mother<br />

Marjorie also denied that her son<br />

had helped Benbow in any way.<br />

Another close friend of<br />

Benbow’s today, Lyn-Marie<br />

Borlase, told the jury about<br />

supporting him while he was<br />

under police investigation.<br />

She asked him three times if he<br />

had killed McGrath.<br />

On the first occasion that she<br />

put it to Benbow, he allegedly<br />

“just had his head down”.<br />

“But that was his demeanour<br />

the whole time he was with me<br />

that night,” Borlase said.<br />

The second time Benbow<br />

allegedly replied: “Well, what do<br />

you think Lynny?”<br />

And on the third occasion, he<br />

became angry, she told the court.<br />

Benbow’s defence team has<br />

warned the jury of “investigative<br />

bias” and “tunnel vision” from<br />

police early in its investigations.<br />

The Crown allege he lured<br />

McGrath to his semi-rural<br />

lifestyle property in Halswell<br />

on Monday, May 22, 2<strong>01</strong>7 and<br />

used his .22 semi-automatic rifle,<br />

with suppressor and sub-sonic<br />

ammunition, to shoot him dead<br />

and then dispose of his body,<br />

just weeks after learning he was<br />

seeing his ex-partner Green and<br />

telling a counsellor he wanted to<br />

“annihilate” him.<br />

McGrath’s body has never<br />

been found – and nor has<br />

a murder weapon - despite<br />

widespread searches of<br />

properties, rivers, waterways,<br />

and the city dump. The trial,<br />

continues. – NZ Herald<br />

SailGP race<br />

to stop if<br />

dolphins<br />

spotted<br />

• By Tony Simons<br />

SAILGP RACE organisers will<br />

now rely on sighting hector’s<br />

dolphins to keep them safe<br />

during next month’s racing on<br />

Whakaraupō Lyttelton Harbour.<br />

A decision not to use a<br />

deterrent device means the<br />

mammals will now be free<br />

to swim where they like, and<br />

racing will be called off if they<br />

are seen or heard anywhere near<br />

the racecourse and high speed<br />

catamarans.<br />

Organisers for the <strong>March</strong> 18-<br />

19 event are employing several<br />

detection strategies focusing<br />

on four zones in the harbour,<br />

stretching from the harbour<br />

mouth to the racecourse.<br />

The SailGP Marine Mammal<br />

Management Plan states if<br />

dolphins are detected in zone<br />

Enjoy more<br />

four, the nearest zone to the<br />

racecourse, the boats will be<br />

ordered to stop.<br />

Once racing has stopped, a<br />

SailGP spokesperson said the<br />

yachts “will simply wait until<br />

(the dolphins) leave”.<br />

In zones one or two, dolphins<br />

will be reported and tracked. If<br />

they are in zone three, racing<br />

will be delayed.<br />

SailGP is experienced with the<br />

issues and understands the risk,<br />

the spokesperson said.<br />

A key detection strategy will<br />

include trained dolphin observers<br />

and volunteers, stationed<br />

along both sides of the harbour<br />

and in boats, looking out for<br />

dolphins. Experts say they may<br />

locate some of the dolphins but<br />

not all of them due to difficulty<br />

seeing the mammals at any distance,<br />

particularly if the water<br />

comfort, control<br />

save energy and<br />

Ducted<br />

Heat Pump<br />

Zone Control<br />

is choppy. A second detection<br />

measure will see a drone with<br />

artificial intelligence criss-cross<br />

the harbour.<br />

However, the drone can’t be<br />

used when the boats are racing<br />

because of broadcast interference.<br />

It will scan and photograph<br />

the surface before and after the<br />

sailing sessions.<br />

Real-time acoustic monitoring,<br />

using two AI programmed<br />

hydrophones attached to buoys<br />

in the harbour, will operate just<br />

east of the racing zone. They will<br />

monitor continuously for the<br />

echo-location of dolphins.<br />

Underwater acoustic expert<br />

Dr Matt Pine was consulted on<br />

the MMMP and has now been<br />

employed to do the listening.<br />

He said the devices can pick<br />

up dolphins pinging, or echolocating,<br />

up to a few hundred<br />

metres away, depending on<br />

how noisy they are.<br />

“We expect in murky<br />

waters like Lyttelton Harbour<br />

and in busy environments, they<br />

will be echo-locating most of the<br />

time,” Pine said.<br />

However, dolphin expert<br />

Professor Liz Slooten, formerly<br />

with the Zoology Department at<br />

Otago University, disagreed.<br />

“He (Pine) is wrong,” she said.<br />

“When there is lots of noise it<br />

makes more sense for a dolphin<br />

to listen using its ears, because<br />

sound carries much further than<br />

echo-location. The dolphins may<br />

simply turn their echo-location<br />

off,” she said.<br />

SailGP and ChristchurchNZ<br />

will also be relying on spectators<br />

and race officials to report<br />

dolphin sightings.<br />

We are not relying on any<br />

single<br />

dolphin<br />

detection<br />

measure, said race organisers.<br />

Said SailGP head of event and<br />

commercial director Karl Budge:<br />

“Based on the advice of (the<br />

Department of Conservation)<br />

and other experts, we maintain<br />

full confidence in the efficacy of<br />

the plan.”<br />

If an incident were to occur,<br />

DOC has jurisdiction.<br />

“We wouldn’t speculate<br />

on who might be held<br />

responsible if an incident<br />

was to occur,” said DOC<br />

Mahaanui operations manager<br />

Andy Thompson.<br />

First XI eye maiden<br />

Gillette Cup spot<br />

• By Jaime Cunningham<br />

ROLLESTON College’s first XI<br />

are a step closer to qualifying<br />

for the Gillette Cup after beating<br />

Lincoln High School for the first<br />

time last week.<br />

Opener Ryder Allin scored 109<br />

not out to lead Rolleston to 230/1<br />

from 35 overs at Weedons, while<br />

his opening partner Nathan Edge<br />

scored 66.<br />

James Willats was the star<br />

bowler for Rolleston, taking 3/3<br />

from 2.2 overs in the 30 deg C<br />

heat, before his side knocked<br />

Lincoln over for just 93.<br />

Marshall Kahn and Billy Pascoe<br />

took two wickets each to help cement<br />

the 137-run victory.<br />

Rolleston are now preparing<br />

for the next stages of Gillette Cup<br />

qualification, while Lincoln has<br />

been knocked out alongside Rangiora<br />

High and Darfield High.<br />

The school has had a first XI for<br />

three years. Rolleston College was<br />

founded in 2<strong>01</strong>7. This is the first<br />

time the team have made it past<br />

the first stage of the Gillette Cup<br />

qualification.<br />

VICTORY: Rolleston College passed their first hurdle on the<br />

way to qualifying for the Gillette Cup, beating Lincoln High<br />

by 137 runs.<br />

Rolleston will play regional<br />

round-robin matches in the competition.<br />

The winner will then move on<br />

to the regional finals with the<br />

chance to represent Canterbury at<br />

the national championships later<br />

this year.<br />

Rolleston girls US-bound with Junior White Sox<br />

• By Jaime Cunningham<br />

TWO ROLLESTON College<br />

students have been named in the<br />

Junior White Sox teams to travel<br />

to the United States in June.<br />

Year 12 student Caitlin Henderson<br />

(left) is one of six Canterbury<br />

representatives in the<br />

under-18 team, while year 11’s<br />

Maddison Parsons (right) was<br />

selected in the under-16 side.<br />

Both players were part of the<br />

Canterbury under-17 team that<br />

won the national championships<br />

in January.<br />

About 250 teams are expected<br />

last week.<br />

Former White Sox captain and<br />

Olympian Kiri Shaw will continue<br />

as head coach of the Junior<br />

White Sox with new assistant<br />

Carley Ratu.<br />

“You would have to say American<br />

girls’ softball is the best<br />

in the world, and we are lucky<br />

enough to get this opportunity<br />

to see and compete against the<br />

best,” Shaw said.<br />

“This whole experience is going<br />

to be massive. I can’t think of<br />

anything better than throwing<br />

ourselves into the firing line, so<br />

to speak.”<br />

The tournament will mark<br />

Young drivers splash the cash<br />

• By Dave Di Somma<br />

IT WAS Generation Z v a<br />

roomful of Boomers.<br />

And for three of the sport’s<br />

youngest and brightest at the<br />

NZB National Standardbred<br />

Yearling Sale at Karaka and<br />

Christchurch they proved their<br />

talents aren’t just confined to the<br />

race track.<br />

The country’s top junior<br />

driver Sarah O’Reilly splashed<br />

out $25,000 on a Sweet Lou<br />

filly, fellow 23-year-old Korbyn<br />

Newman outlaid $17,500 on<br />

a Captain Crunch colt, and<br />

24-year-old Sam Payne bought<br />

three yearlings for a combined<br />

total of over $30,000, including<br />

one that left him gobsmacked.<br />

It was Lot 57 at Karaka, a<br />

Bettor’s Delight – Georgia’s Belle<br />

colt for $16,000.<br />

“I could not believe a Bettor’s<br />

colt went for that – I thought<br />

there must be something wrong<br />

with him, I would have thought<br />

he was worth $50,000 to 70,000,”<br />

said Payne.<br />

“I was just hoping he didn’t<br />

have his leg on back to front.”<br />

As it turns out the colt was<br />

just fine, and Payne is looking<br />

forward to seeing what happens<br />

next.<br />

“It is unbelievable,” he said.<br />

He bought another Bettor’s<br />

Delight – this time a filly (Saddle<br />

Ridge) for $7500, and then a Fear<br />

The Dragon – Divine Diva filly<br />

for $9000.<br />

“I own them myself and I’ll<br />

break them in and try and<br />

syndicate them and if not I’ll<br />

keep them myself.”<br />

Payne has bought yearlings at<br />

the sales in the past – just not<br />

in these numbers. “It’s a big ask<br />

(spending a total of $32,500) but<br />

it’s all part of building a good<br />

race team.”<br />

Both Payne and O’Reilly come<br />

from established racing families.<br />

For O’Reilly it was the first<br />

horse she’s bought “all by<br />

$25,000 for<br />

Yearling<br />

Sale, while<br />

Sam Payne<br />

bought three<br />

yearlings for<br />

more than<br />

$30,000.<br />

myself”. Previously she’d been to<br />

many sales usually alongside her<br />

father Gerard, in much the same<br />

way as Payne has seen his dad<br />

Greg buy plenty in the past.<br />

“It was a bit random – I didn’t<br />

look at the catalogue until the<br />

day before the sale,” said O’Reilly,<br />

“I liked the look of her in the<br />

photos but in person she looked<br />

even better and was a good<br />

mover.”<br />

She duly bought the Sweet<br />

Lou – Mermaid Explorer filly for<br />

$25,000.<br />

“I had a budget of under<br />

the $20,000 mark but I’m<br />

my own boss so it worked out<br />

okay.”<br />

So how was the experience?<br />

“It was a bit scary – but good.”<br />

While Mermaid Explorer was<br />

an unraced Bettor’s Delight<br />

mare, O’Reilly said a bit of<br />

research showed plenty of good<br />

winners in her family.<br />

“Her sisters left the likes of<br />

Cover Girl, Town Echo and<br />

Lauraella.”<br />

Town Echo was the most<br />

prolific winner with 12 from 44<br />

starts.<br />

For Newman the experience<br />

of buying Lot 255, a Captain<br />

Crunch – Dreaminthemaking<br />

colt was “an adrenaline rush”.<br />

It was his first purchase at the<br />

sales.<br />

He’d seen the horse up close<br />

during the pre-sale on-farm<br />

parades and after consulting the<br />

likes of John Dunn and Regan<br />

Todd decided he was keen.<br />

Newman bought the colt along<br />

with his father Greg and uncle<br />

Mark. “We would have gone up<br />

to $35,000 so we think we got<br />

a bargain. We were bidding on<br />

another two earlier in the day<br />

and got outbid . . . we were only<br />

going to buy one horse and we<br />

are happy with what we’ve got.<br />

“He seems a cool dude.”<br />

While his and O’Reilly’s new<br />

purchase have already been “on<br />

the jogger”, Payne is giving his<br />

trio a week or so to get used to<br />

their new surroundings.<br />

“Ideally it would great to have<br />

a two-year-old up and going but<br />

we’ll start breaking them in and<br />

go from there.”<br />

Help for business and workers to Learn,<br />

Earn and Grow<br />

Support for businesses and people looking for work are being offered over the<br />

month with the return of Learn Earn Grow <strong>Selwyn</strong>.<br />

Everything from business mentoring to return to work support, cross cultural<br />

communication and being accessible will be covered over the month.<br />

How should we grow —<br />

tell us what you think<br />

How do we want Greater Christchurch to grow and how will we get around? That’s<br />

among what <strong>Selwyn</strong> residents are now being asked to shape an ambitious growth<br />

and transport plan for the region.<br />

The Whakawhanake Kāinga Komiti (Urban Growth Partnership for Greater<br />

Christchurch) are inviting people living in Christchurch City, <strong>Selwyn</strong> and<br />

Waimakariri Districts to take part in the discussion to shape where and how their<br />

area will grow in the future and how its transport infrastructure can be futureproofed.<br />

The Huihui Mai (let’s come together) public engagement runs to<br />

Sunday 26 <strong>March</strong>.<br />

It asks if the Partnership’s work on how we accommodate more people and<br />

business in Greater Christchurch, while also providing a high quality of life for<br />

our people, a thriving economy and protecting our environment, is in line with the<br />

community’s aspirations.<br />

This work also includes a potential ‘turn up and go’ mass rapid transit system,<br />

which both responds to and encourages growth along its proposed route from<br />

central Christchurch City north to Belfast and south-west to Hornby.<br />

After a popular first year, the Learn Earn Grow <strong>Selwyn</strong> events series returns<br />

with the Council once again partnering with employment, business and<br />

community groups to run seminars, workshops and other events offering<br />

advice and support for people at all stages of their employment from those<br />

looking for a job, to people looking to hire, or grow their business.<br />

The events kick off today (Wednesday 1 <strong>March</strong>) with a seminar supporting<br />

businesses to recruit and support disabled employees, as well as keys to<br />

accessible customer engagement.<br />

One on one business mentoring sessions will begin the next day with business<br />

mentors from the Canterbury Employers Chamber of Commerce offering<br />

45 minute sessions on 2, 8, 22 <strong>March</strong>, 9.15am–1pm at Te Ara Ātea (bookings<br />

required). A returning to work series will also be on offer in the evenings for<br />

those who have been out of the work place and are looking to get work<br />

ready again.<br />

A business health check follows on Tuesday 7 <strong>March</strong> with legal experts<br />

from Parry Field Lawyers on hand to help business owners and managers on<br />

keeping up with all the legal requirements and understand how to keep your<br />

business 'healthy'. The session will help understand what questions you should<br />

be asking to assess the health of your business.<br />

Events later in the month will include the popular <strong>Selwyn</strong> Business Breakfast<br />

and <strong>Selwyn</strong> Jobs Fair. For more information on sessions or to book visit<br />

selwyn.govt.nz/LearnEarnGrow.<br />

Feedback will be used to inform plans about transport, infrastructure and urban<br />

planning, which will then go out to the public for consultation later this year.<br />

Greater Christchurch’s population is forecast to double to a million people over the<br />

next 60 years or even earlier, following rapid growth over the past 15 years.<br />

For <strong>Selwyn</strong>, a key balance is around retaining high-quality agricultural land while<br />

managing ongoing growth says <strong>Selwyn</strong> District Mayor Sam Broughton.<br />

“<strong>Selwyn</strong> is a strong farming area with extremely fertile land, much of which is<br />

already being used for food production. It is important that this high-quality<br />

agriculture land is retained for the use it is best suited to and not lost to housing<br />

development,” he says.<br />

“At the same time we recognise that we need to accommodate our growing<br />

population and that is why the plan for future growth is so important for<br />

our region.”<br />

Residents can find out more about the Partnership’s work, listen to a webinar and<br />

complete an online survey at greaterchristchurch.org.nz until 26 <strong>March</strong>.<br />

The Whakawhanake Kāinga Komiti Urban Growth Partnership for Greater<br />

Christchurch was established last year, bringing together local government, mana<br />

whenua and central government to advance shared urban growth objectives.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> 'adopts' Gisborne to help with<br />

cyclone recovery<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> is 'adopting' Gisborne to support the region with its recovery from<br />

Cyclone Gabrielle.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> has joined the Local Government New Zealand Adopt-a-Community<br />

programme adopting the Tairāwhiti Gisborne District, with residents<br />

encouraged to give to the Tairāwhiti Mayoral Relief Fund. Gisborne was<br />

among the regions hit hardest by Cyclone Gabrielle, with thousands of houses<br />

damaged, an ongoing water crisis and massive infrastructure damage.<br />

Donating to the Mayoral Relief Fund<br />

gives direct support to the community for<br />

medium to long-term recovery projects,<br />

Mayor Sam Broughton says "We’ve all seen<br />

the devastation and we’ve heard from so<br />

many <strong>Selwyn</strong> residents looking to help.<br />

Adopting a community gives us a focus for<br />

helping, and allow us to help beyond the<br />

initial needs. We know from the disasters<br />

we’ve experienced here in Canterbury that<br />

recovery is a long road.<br />

"We are a rural community of a similar size<br />

to Gisborne, we share many connections,<br />

we’re whānau and as whānau we stick<br />

together for the long haul. So we’re asking our <strong>Selwyn</strong> community to get<br />

behind Gisborne.”<br />

Councillors and volunteers will be collecting at <strong>Selwyn</strong> Sounds on 4 <strong>March</strong><br />

with further fundraisers being planned.<br />

“This is a whole community effort, if you’re a business, a school, a community<br />

group looking for a way to help, this is for you. Get creative, have fun and let’s<br />

get fundraising for Gisborne,” Mayor Sam says.<br />

How are you finding using Council facilities?<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> residents are being asked what they think about the district's many community facilities in<br />

the annual Customer Experience Survey, which is now open until 12 <strong>March</strong>.<br />

The survey will help the Council to understand what people's experiences using the district's pools,<br />

community centres, halls and libraries have been like and what could be improved.<br />

There is a survey for each type of facility, so people can fill out one or all—depending on which ones<br />

they use. Data from the surveys is used by Council in annual reporting and to help it plan for<br />

the future.<br />

Council also wants to hear from residents who don't use any of the community facilities or services,<br />

to gain a better understanding of how more people's needs can be met.<br />

Last year’s survey revealed that 94 per cent of respondents were satisfied with their experience of<br />

Council facilities, and more than 70 per cent were happy with the facilities’ suitability, presentation,<br />

cleanliness, booking process and equipment.<br />

The <strong>2023</strong> survey is now open until Sunday 12 <strong>March</strong>, 11.59pm.<br />

Each person who completes the survey can go into the draw to win one of 10 <strong>Selwyn</strong> Aquatic<br />

Centre concession cards.<br />

The Customer Experience Survey can be completed online at selwyn.govt.nz/facilitiessurvey.<br />

Thornley takes Franco Norton to<br />

‘next level’ with winning burst<br />

• By Jonny Turner<br />

FRANCO NORTON took<br />

Gemma Thornley on an<br />

unexpected and explosive ride<br />

to win the Fruit Bowl Handicap<br />

at Cromwell on Sunday.<br />

The pacer was in need of a<br />

super-sub driver when Thornley’s<br />

uncle, Craig, was unable to<br />

fulfil his commitments at the<br />

meeting.<br />

Thornley (left) stepped up<br />

when duty called and got a feel<br />

for the outstanding pacer in the<br />

process.<br />

While parked in the middle<br />

stages, the junior driver called<br />

on the favourite to give a big<br />

effort – and he unleashed an<br />

explosive burst of speed.<br />

“When I asked him, he just<br />

went next level,” Thornley said.<br />

She admitted there was some<br />

pressure on her when she was<br />

handed the chance to drive the<br />

favourite in a feature event.<br />

But eventually it only added<br />

to the thrill of her victory.<br />

“Especially when it is a good<br />

race like this, there was a bit of<br />

pressure driving a horse like<br />

him. It was a last-minute pickup<br />

drive and I was pleased I<br />

could deliver.”<br />

Thornley was in outstanding<br />

form last year and continued to<br />

put on a show at Cromwell.<br />

Franco Norton’s win was the<br />

middle leg of a winning treble<br />

for the junior driver.<br />

Thornley started the meeting<br />

with a win in race 1 driving<br />

Superfast Gorsey. Her<br />

Greenpark-based father Chris<br />

trains Gorsey.<br />

Thornley later won with the<br />

David Mitchell-trained, Asian<br />

Elvis, in race 9. Rough<br />

steps late in his effort for<br />

second at Cromwell on<br />

Friday potentially cost the<br />

pacer victory, but Asian Elvis<br />

delivered a much more polished<br />

display on Sunday.<br />

Thornley’s victories at<br />

Cromwell raised $1800 for<br />

women’s cancer research as part<br />

of the Australasian Harness<br />

Racing Teal Campaign.<br />

“It was good to get another<br />

win for Team Teal and keep<br />

making money for a good<br />

cause,” Thornley said after her<br />

win with Franco Norton.<br />

It was the reinswoman’s first<br />

is in her first year as a Team<br />

Teal ambassador and has<br />

registered six wins raising a<br />

total of $3600 so far in the sixweek<br />

fundraising campaign.<br />

Questions answered about<br />

new winter grazing regulations<br />

Ellesmere Sustainable Agriculture<br />

is teaming up with staff from<br />

Environment Canterbury to offer an<br />

opportunity for farmers from across<br />

the region to find out more about the<br />

new winter grazing regulations that<br />

came into effect in November 2022.<br />

After the last winter grazing<br />

workshop that ESAI held back in<br />

October, farmers remain concerned<br />

about the new rules and how they<br />

are going to impact farming here in<br />

Canterbury.<br />

Many farmers are experiencing<br />

increasing pressure with the<br />

introduction of a host of new rules<br />

and regulations. ESAI has recognised<br />

that some farmers still require support<br />

and advice to assist navigating the new<br />

requirements.<br />

This follow up drop-in day has been<br />

organised to enable farmers a chance to<br />

come along and get more clarification<br />

on what needs to be done and get some<br />

one-on-one time with local specialised<br />

ECan staff.<br />

Environment Canterbury’s priority<br />

this season is education and so the four<br />

staff members that will be attending<br />

will be on hand to answer any<br />

questions farmers might have about<br />

the new regulations and can even<br />

help with your grazing management<br />

plan, determining if it is a permitted<br />

activity or if you require a consent and<br />

even help with consent applications if<br />

required.<br />

This open day is to be<br />

held on Tuesday 7th<br />

<strong>March</strong> from 9am-4pm<br />

at Lakeside Soldiers<br />

Memorial Hall, Leeston.<br />

This event is<br />

completely free. It is<br />

open to any farmers<br />

in the area that need<br />

assistance with the<br />

new winter grazing<br />

rules and there will be<br />

refreshments available<br />

throughout the day.<br />

Strong wool price indicator to<br />

give market insight<br />

• By Sally Rae<br />

Ryan Cosgrove first got the idea for a wool<br />

data company while sitting in the auction<br />

room with a pen and paper.<br />

It was then he decided something needed<br />

to change which has subsequently led to<br />

the launch of his start-up Fusca which has<br />

partnered with Wool Impact to develop a<br />

strong wool price indicator.<br />

Mr Cosgrove has been involved in the<br />

wool industry for 12 years. His day job<br />

is business development manager (fibre<br />

products) at Carrfields New Zealand and he<br />

is also chairman of Campaign for Wool New<br />

Zealand.<br />

It had been a “passion project” to use the<br />

data collected to gain better insight into the<br />

market and communicate that data back to<br />

the wool grower, Mr Cosgrove said.<br />

There used to be a strong wool price<br />

indicator but that disappeared with the<br />

demise of the wool board, he said.<br />

Taking a mathematical and analytical<br />

approach, it would provide a visible and<br />

consistent benchmark for the sector and<br />

allowed it to monitor the impact of work<br />

being undertaken to drive demand and<br />

value.<br />

Fusca had the technology to develop<br />

a commercial data platform that would<br />

provide farmers and the wool supply chain<br />

with more detailed and accurate pricing<br />

data based on the weekly wool auction and<br />

export data.<br />

It was working with Wool Impact - a<br />

collaboration between the Government<br />

and sheep sector partners under the<br />

Sustainable Food and Fibre Futures fund<br />

- and representatives from each stage of<br />

the domestic supply chain to develop the<br />

methodology for the indicator so it was<br />

robust to seasonal variation and gave “a high<br />

level view of the health of the industry”.<br />

Fusca’s platform would provide access<br />

to historical and up-to-date pricing<br />

information for all wool types sold and<br />

allow users to personalise reports.<br />

Growers could load the exact type of<br />

wool they grew and then only view market<br />

reports on their wool type, seeing the trends<br />

and drivers for that type.<br />

“That’ll be completely new and hopefully<br />

give growers a feeling of empowerment<br />

being able to see it through the lens of their<br />

business,” Mr Cosgrove said.<br />

“There are a lot of cool people trying to do<br />

cool things with wool but without a way to<br />

accurately track value, outside of total FOB<br />

value, it’s hard to really measure impact.<br />

We want farmers and wool traders to have<br />

full visibility and transparency of the prices<br />

for their wool types and the comparative<br />

discounts and premiums available,” Mr<br />

Cosgrove said.<br />

While awareness needed to be raised as<br />

to the value of wool as a natural fibre, there<br />

was also a need to better understand what<br />

the drivers for value were and be able to<br />

monitor those, to increase demand and<br />

value, he said.<br />

There was no silver bullet for the<br />

beleaguered strong wool industry but,<br />

under the Campaign for Wool banner,<br />

the likes of communication, education<br />

and connecting with consumers was very<br />

important. Storytelling was something that<br />

had been missed in the past, he said.<br />

He was excited about the launch of Fusca<br />

and what it could mean, both in its first<br />

iteration and what it could become. It was<br />

hoped the indicator would launch at the<br />

end of <strong>March</strong> and the first platform would<br />

be ready for the start of the new season in<br />

July.<br />

ANZ’s latest Agri-Focus report said<br />

wool prices remained lacklustre and would<br />

need to “lift considerably” to contribute<br />

positively to farm profits.<br />

While there were plenty of initiatives<br />

under development for new uses for wool,<br />

most were still some way off large-scale<br />

production and were yet to impact farmgate<br />

prices.<br />

GARDENING 29<br />

The last harvest of summer beckons<br />

Keep on top of your<br />

garden with these tips<br />

from Daltons<br />

Houseplants<br />

Houseplants prefer to grow in<br />

relatively high humidity, so it is<br />

important to mist their<br />

leaves regularly with lukewarm<br />

water. This promotes healthy<br />

plant growth, as well as helping<br />

keep leaves clean. Inspect plants<br />

once a week, particularly on the<br />

underside of leaves, for pests<br />

such as mealybug or spider<br />

mites. They can multiple and<br />

spread quickly to other plants if<br />

left undetected.<br />

Report any older houseplants<br />

that may have become<br />

rootbound –always use a good<br />

quality houseplant plant mix and<br />

ensure the pot you are using has<br />

drainage holes and is clean.<br />

Veggie Garden<br />

Tomatoes should be coming<br />

to an end. Other vegetables to<br />

be harvested include, beans,<br />

beetroot, cabbage, carrots,<br />

corn, courgettes, cucumbers,<br />

eggplants, lettuce, melons,<br />

onions, potatoes, pumpkin,<br />

radish, silver beet, and spinach.<br />

Save seeds from varieties of topperforming<br />

summer vegetables<br />

such as tomatoes and beans.<br />

Continue sowing seeds and<br />

planting seedlings of beans,<br />

beetroot, cabbage, carrots,<br />

lettuce, radish, silver beet and<br />

spinach.<br />

Plant traditional winter<br />

vegetable seedlings including,<br />

broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower,<br />

kale, spinach, and silver beet.<br />

Check areas for growing winter<br />

vegetables are raised with good<br />

drainage in preparation for the<br />

wet winter months ahead.<br />

When planting, always add<br />

fresh compost to the existing<br />

soil and rotate crops to different<br />

parts of the vegetable garden.<br />

Where possible, expand your<br />

existing vegetable garden to help<br />

with the household budget.<br />

Flowering Annuals<br />

Keep dead-heading plants to<br />

promote continuous flowering.<br />

‘Potted colour’ annual varieties<br />

are very reasonably priced at this<br />

time of year and will brighten up<br />

containers or special parts of the<br />

garden.<br />

It’s time to consider autumn/<br />

winter flower displays so start<br />

sowing seeds of winter annuals<br />

e.g. alyssum, calendulas, lobelia,<br />

primulas, nemesias, pansies,<br />

polyanthus, snap dragon,<br />

stock, sweet peas, violas, and<br />

wallflowers.<br />

Bulbs<br />

The end of February marks the<br />

beginning of the bulb planting<br />

season. Bulbs thrive in an open,<br />

sunny position where the soil<br />

is friable (crumbly) and welldrained.<br />

Choose fresh, healthy looking<br />

bulbs early in the season so<br />

you are getting the best of the<br />

bunch. Before planting, add<br />

fresh compost combined with<br />

Daltons premium bulb mix to<br />

the existing soil and mix well (to<br />

about a 1.5 spade depth).<br />

Create a stunning display<br />

in spring by planting bulbs<br />

in groups. If you are going to<br />

mix varieties together, check<br />

blooming times and light<br />

requirements. Varieties to plant<br />

include anemones, crocus,<br />

daffodils, freesias, hyacinth, iris,<br />

jonquil, lachenalias, muscari,<br />

nerines, ranunculus, tulips, and<br />

watsonias.<br />

Mark where you have planted<br />

your bulbs with a label that<br />

identifies the species and date of<br />

planting.<br />

Strawberries<br />

Strawberry fruiting will come<br />

to an end, so leave plants to<br />

grow runners for next seasons<br />

plantings. Remove all plants that<br />

are more than two years old as<br />

after this time, fruit production<br />

can start to slow.<br />

Herbs<br />

Some herbs will flower and<br />

‘run-to-seed’ toward the end<br />

of February. If this happens,<br />

remove them, and replace with<br />

fresh new plants.<br />

You can also save leaves for<br />

drying – simply place them in a<br />

shallow tray in a warm, sheltered<br />

spot with good airflow for 2-3<br />

weeks until completely dry,<br />

then store them in an airtight<br />

container.<br />

Fruit Trees<br />

At the end of the month, late<br />

season plums and peaches will<br />

be maturing, and apples and<br />

pears will begin to ripen.<br />

On citrus trees, small fruit<br />

are now forming and will ripen<br />

mid-winter so water consistently<br />

during this important time.<br />

Mulch all fruit trees to help<br />

maintain soil moisture levels to<br />

aid fruit formation and ripening.<br />

Fertilise with Daltons premium<br />

fruit and citrus fertiliser.<br />

T-Roc R adds to VW’s performance line-up<br />

GET IN QUICK is my advice.<br />

That is if you want a performance<br />

car with a high output<br />

internal combustion engine. The<br />

automotive world is changing<br />

quickly, hybrids, electric vehicles<br />

and models with low emission<br />

engines will soon dominate the<br />

global new car market.<br />

I was watching one of my<br />

favourite motoring programmes<br />

on Sky the other night and the<br />

reference was there’s already a<br />

huge shift away from high output<br />

engines in the marketplace.<br />

At least for the time being,<br />

Volkswagen is catering for those<br />

who want power and performance<br />

and in a stand out package. Sure,<br />

there’s the quintessential Golf<br />

GTi, but Volkswagen is marketing<br />

heavily the R series of performance<br />

models – Golf R, Tiguan<br />

R and now T-Roc. I’ve driven all<br />

three in recent months and this<br />

evaluation focuses on the T-Roc R<br />

(R meaning Race).<br />

The T-Roc sits in the smaller<br />

side of the sport utility vehicle<br />

range, it’s sort of a crossover really,<br />

but what it lacks in stature it certainly<br />

makes up for in practicality<br />

and honesty, it will easily cater for<br />

the small family and has already<br />

established itself as a success in the<br />

global marketplace.<br />

The T-Roc here is priced from<br />

$43,490, there are four models<br />

(including the R), the latter sits<br />

at $71,990, which if you stack<br />

it beside other performance<br />

hatchbacks and sedans around<br />

the same size it’s competitive, but<br />

bear in mind the Government will<br />

also have its hand out for a $1660<br />

fee to subsidise low emission<br />

vehicles.<br />

True to its R stablemates, the<br />

T-Roc gets a 2-litre turbocharged<br />

engine. I mentioned the Golf GTi,<br />

well, the R series engines in all<br />

three variants get a similar engine<br />

as the GTi but with even greater<br />

power outputs.<br />

In R form the four-cylinder unit<br />

has power outputs of 221kW and<br />

400Nm and, what’s more, they<br />

are achieved comprehensively<br />

across the rev band, Volkswagen<br />

lists5300 to 6500rpm for peak<br />

delivery of power with maximum<br />

torque almost meeting that from<br />

2000 to 5200rpm, such are the<br />

specific outputs that there is no<br />

power drop off at any point from<br />

idle to the redline.<br />

And that is the secret to the<br />

R series cars, the engine is an<br />

absolute belter with a strong midrange<br />

surge and dynamics which<br />

encourage vigorous throttle use.<br />

That’s because this engine has<br />

sound, I’m not saying it is noisy, it’s<br />

not, but it does emit shrieks and<br />

howls under urgency that is a joy<br />

to listen to. Add in the subdued<br />

bark from the exhaust and you<br />

have a car that from both ends<br />

BOLD: Big wheels and brakes provide a solid handling and<br />

performance package.<br />

VOLKSWAGEN T-ROC R: Compact sport utility vehicle with a huge emphasis on sport.<br />

tempts the driver to muster in acceleration.<br />

On that subject, Volkswagen<br />

claim a 4.9sec time to make<br />

100km/h and the T-Roc R will<br />

also lunge through a highway<br />

overtake in 4sec.<br />

As I mentioned in my introduction,<br />

engines such as this just<br />

simply won’t fit with laws and<br />

environment protocols in years to<br />

come, how that all plays out I don’t<br />

know, but I can report that Volkswagen<br />

has done well to make this<br />

engine so feisty but reasonably fuel<br />

efficient. It also lists a 9.3-litre per<br />

100km/h combined cycle average.<br />

During my testing time I<br />

explored the engine’s potential on<br />

many an occasion, but I took the<br />

evaluation car back to the dealership<br />

showing a 10l/100km readout<br />

that I didn’t think was too bad. At<br />

100km/h an instantaneous reading<br />

of 6.1l/100km is achievable, the<br />

engine quite subdued turning over<br />

at just 1800rpm. Of course, at that<br />

speed it is waiting to be unleashed,<br />

and any throttle provocation will<br />

send the revs soaring.<br />

Drive is channelled to all four<br />

corners using Volkswagen’s 4-Motion<br />

system, the transmission is<br />

a seven-speed direct shift system<br />

which you simply treat like any<br />

automatic. As you would expect,<br />

there are paddle shifters on the<br />

T-Roc, and if you still like to hang<br />

onto a gearshift, manual changes<br />

• Price – Volkswagen T-Roc<br />

R, $71,990<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

4236mm; width, 1819mm;<br />

height, 1559mm<br />

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,<br />

four-wheel-drive,<br />

1984cc, 221kW, 400Nm,<br />

seven-speed direct shift<br />

automatic<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 4.9sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 9.3l/100km<br />

can also be carried out at the main<br />

shifter itself.<br />

When I refer to the entire Volkswagen<br />

R series models as being<br />

race ready, well, effectively they<br />

are. Sure, you can’t go to a track<br />

and start racing, but you can have<br />

a decent amount of fun in a closed<br />

circuit situation because the T-Roc<br />

R has functions and systems<br />

that encourage track use and<br />

drifting.<br />

Unfortunately, I’ve never had<br />

any of the R series models in that<br />

environment but I can tell you that<br />

on the open road the T-Roc R is<br />

an absolute dynamo and will haul<br />

in dizzy speeds with absolute ease.<br />

On my favourite open road routes<br />

it blasted through the tricky tight<br />

stuff with assurance and composure.<br />

It sits tightly on the road and<br />

steers directly on its low profile<br />

Continental performance rubber<br />

(235/40 x 19in). With the low<br />

profile tyres and firm suspension<br />

you constantly know you are<br />

driving a performance model,<br />

but the big bonus is the onboard<br />

ride is still compliant, occupants<br />

aren’t jolted when ruts and<br />

road ripples arrive, while body<br />

movement over the suspension is<br />

negligible.<br />

Hot hatchback buyers are spoilt<br />

for choice with a plethora of<br />

lively yet functional performance<br />

models scattered freely across<br />

several brands in New Zealand.<br />

Volkswagen has not made a choice<br />

easy, choosing between any of<br />

the three R variants would simply<br />

come down to the practical aspect<br />

of what each delivers. For me,<br />

I’d be hard pressed to go past the<br />

Tiguan R, even in standard form<br />

it’s long been a favourite; however,<br />

the T-Roc delivers much the same<br />

feel and it also has the benefit of a<br />

sizeable load area.<br />

However, it’s what’s at the<br />

other end that makes the R<br />

models so special, let’s hope<br />

that Volkswagen (and other car<br />

makers) can continue building<br />

their performance engines for<br />

many years to come. I know that’s<br />

a difficult ask when the world is<br />

demanding lower emissions to<br />

combat climate change, but I’m<br />

forever the optimist.<br />

A MOTORIST a legedly more<br />

Police say the 25-year-old<br />

litre of breath. The lega limit is<br />

250mcg/l. He was also charged<br />

doing a burnout<br />

near the Te nyson St police station<br />

about 10.50pm on Friday.<br />

“He was a noyed about something<br />

and decided to do a burnout,<br />

which wasn’t a g od l ok<br />

A DARFIELD farmer has<br />

spoken of watching a man leap into<br />

the flooded Hawkins River to try and<br />

save himself after a helicopter winch<br />

rescue operation failed.<br />

Rod May had taken his tractor to<br />

the scene on Greendale Rd, to try and<br />

reach the middle-aged man who had<br />

been clinging to the branches of a tree<br />

in the rising waters on Sunday night.<br />

The man had driven into the<br />

flooded river, escaped from his car<br />

and ca led emergency services from<br />

his ce lphone which he managed to<br />

keep with him.<br />

Ultimately, a second helicopter<br />

winch operation plucked the man<br />

to safety after he was swept downstream.<br />

It was a happy ending to the<br />

ordeal which had lasted more than<br />

three hours. The rescue was among<br />

several in Canterbury on Sunday in<br />

flooded rivers.<br />

May said he and his family had just<br />

had dinner when a neighbour alerted<br />

them. Arriving about 8.50pm, he saw<br />

the floodwaters were too high for the<br />

tractor, however, he used its lights for<br />

i luminating the site where the man<br />

was. • Turn to page 5<br />

IS ADVERTISING<br />

IMPORTANT TO<br />

CONSUMERS?<br />

THE ANSWER<br />

IS YES!<br />

• By Ba ry Clarke<br />

A BAR patron who won $1200<br />

on the pokies may have been<br />

targeted by thieves moments after<br />

she co lected the money.<br />

A group of men who were in<br />

the bar a the same time are the<br />

focus of police inquiries. It is<br />

believed they watched her being<br />

paid, and then quickly swooped.<br />

The incident happened at The<br />

Famous Grouse Hotel in Lincoln<br />

two weeks ago.<br />

After she was paid out a the<br />

bar, the men who had been<br />

si ting nearby went over and<br />

congratulated her. While she was<br />

distracted the money disappeared<br />

from her handbag. She only<br />

realised it was gone after she left<br />

the hotel.<br />

Police have taken CCTV<br />

security camera footage from the<br />

hotel which shows the men going<br />

over to the woman and mobbing<br />

her in a congratulatory way. The<br />

footage also captures a hand from<br />

one of the men going towards the<br />

Police say they may have<br />

identified one of the group but<br />

aren’t saying anymore about<br />

the incident. The <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong><br />

understands the men are from<br />

the Amberley area.<br />

WHY USE A NEWSPAPER<br />

TO ADVERTISE?<br />

• Offer targeted<br />

advertising through<br />

regular weekly inserts,<br />

or monthly sections, or<br />

special promotions<br />

• Offers flexibility and<br />

frequency - businesses<br />

can choose the size<br />

and location of the ad<br />

as well as when and how often the ad<br />

will appear<br />

• Offer professional design services<br />

- businesses can work with a designer to get<br />

the design and style they want at no extra cost<br />

• Provide affordability - generally costs<br />

less than television, radio, and direct mail<br />

advertising and can be designed to suit<br />

any budget<br />

• Reach more readers - newspapers sit around<br />

from week to week and readers are more likely<br />

to come back to a newspaper to find and save<br />

information<br />

• Capture more attention - newspaper readers<br />

spend a longer period of time reading a<br />

newspaper whereas research indicates, “the<br />

average attention span of an Internet user is<br />

eight seconds”<br />

• Offer integrated services - such as online<br />

advertising on news sites, professional<br />

photography, and videography, and parallel<br />

advertising in other publications.<br />

You benefit and save with<br />

a monthly plan.<br />

around for centuries.<br />

And marigolds are probably the<br />

most famous companion plant<br />

and their roots also contain a<br />

living in the soil).<br />

Marigolds are said to deter<br />

aphids from tomatoes and roses,<br />

and nematodes from potatoes and<br />

SPRING IS a time when it’s<br />

desirable to be working is the<br />

garden.<br />

However, there are hidden<br />

dangers and one of those is<br />

developing legionnaires’ disease.<br />

Here are some guidelines to<br />

avoid that happening<br />

•Minimise the amount of dust<br />

present when working in the<br />

garden.<br />

• Water gardens and indoor<br />

plants using a gentle spray.<br />

• Read the warning label on<br />

bagged composts or po ting mix.<br />

• Wear gloves.<br />

• Wear a mask so that any dust<br />

is filtered out before you can<br />

breathe it in.<br />

• Dampen po ting mixes before<br />

• Open bags of soil products<br />

slowly, away from the face.<br />

• Make sure the working area<br />

(for example, the gla shouse or<br />

po ting shed) is we l ventilated.<br />

• See a doctor if you develop a<br />

flu-like i lne s that seems to be<br />

worsening.<br />

• Wash hands thoroughly<br />

after gardening or handling soil<br />

products.<br />

These are simple, easy and<br />

natural steps that a l gardeners<br />

can take to reduce risk while<br />

continuing to enjoy their garden.<br />

Checklist for selling your home<br />

MAKE SMALL FIXES<br />

Inspect your home with a buyer’s<br />

eyes, and correct the flaws that are<br />

most egregious (if affordable) or<br />

can be relatively easily fixed—from<br />

repairing cracks in the walkways<br />

to repainting dingy walls or oiling<br />

creaky hinges.<br />

SET A PRICE<br />

A real estate agent will give you a<br />

market analysis free of charge or<br />

commitment. Ask a few to get a<br />

broader picture of the market, then<br />

ask to see listings for properties<br />

similar to yours that have sold<br />

in the past six months. Check<br />

out comparable listings yourself<br />

[Edition datE]<br />

2<br />

Homeownership:<br />

should you make a will?<br />

If you have just bought your first home or<br />

already own a property, then the answer to<br />

this is yes.<br />

Purchasing a home is one of the biggest<br />

investments you may make during your<br />

lifetime.<br />

It is, therefore, necessary to decide who<br />

will be the benefactor/s of your property and<br />

belongings should you suddenly pass away. To<br />

do this, you need to create a will. A will states<br />

who receives what in the event of your death.<br />

According to the Public Trust, over 50%<br />

of New Zealanders do not have a will. Young<br />

people, aged from 25 to 39 years, who are<br />

financially independent, feature highly in this<br />

area, and yet they are a group more likely to<br />

indulge in adventurous holidays and take part<br />

in risky extreme sports. Accumulated assets of<br />

this age group might include a bike, car, TV,<br />

house, and furniture, along with a vast range<br />

of electronic and digital gear.<br />

With the arrival of a family, having a will in<br />

place is even more essential and yet, according<br />

to the survey taken in 2<strong>01</strong>4, only 30% of 25-40<br />

year-olds, with children, have a will in place.<br />

A will not only legally takes care of the<br />

property, and the monetary side of things but<br />

can also state who will take care of children in<br />

the event of an untimely death.<br />

What happens if there is no will<br />

The lack of a will can create problems<br />

over who will benefit from the estate - this<br />

is especially important if there are children,<br />

de facto relationships, children from<br />

previous relationships, family members with<br />

addictions, or where a business is involved.<br />

Where there is no will, the estate goes into<br />

‘intestacy’, which means a court will appoint<br />

an administrator, who does the same job<br />

as an executor, to manage the estate. The<br />

in the real estate section of your<br />

newspaper or on websites. Then<br />

decide whether you want a quick,<br />

easy sale or the highest possible<br />

price.<br />

CLEAN & DECLUTTER<br />

Weed out excess furniture,<br />

knicknacks, and “stuff ”—toss it,<br />

donate it, give it away, sell it at a<br />

yard sale, or put it into storage—so<br />

the house seems more spacious and<br />

buyers can imagine themselves in it.<br />

STAY VIGILIANT ABOUT<br />

MAINTENANCE<br />

From the moment you start<br />

showing your house, keep the lawn<br />

mowed, shrubs trimmed, gardens<br />

administrator has the authority to act on<br />

behalf of the deceased and applies to the High<br />

Court for letters of administration (power to<br />

administrate the estate).<br />

The Administration Act 1969 provides a<br />

code to be followed that ensures the estate is<br />

administered in order of priority. (Check out<br />

Wills at www.communitylaw.org.nz)<br />

Save time and money<br />

Before meeting with your lawyer, and to<br />

help save time and money, decide in advance<br />

how you want to distribute your will –<br />

determine who will receive what.<br />

You can also create a DIY will online,<br />

but if the distribution of your property is<br />

complicated, you may need to contact a<br />

lawyer for additional help.<br />

For your will to be valid and legally binding<br />

it must be signed in front of two witnesses,<br />

who also must sign it. The witnesses are not in<br />

any way responsible for what is in the will or<br />

its execution.<br />

Four steps to creating a will<br />

1. Nominate an executor – the person who<br />

will manage the distribution of your property.<br />

2. Choose how you want to be buried or<br />

cremated, and how you want your funeral<br />

to be held, i.e. small and private, at a church,<br />

or in a garden. Make sure family or friends<br />

know in advance what you want to happen, as<br />

the reading of the will may not be before the<br />

funeral.<br />

3. Appoint a guardian/s for your children<br />

(if under 18) and your pets. Discuss this with<br />

prospective guardians, so they are prepared<br />

and understand their responsibility.<br />

4. Decide who will receive what and how<br />

much; this may include money, property,<br />

and personal belongings, as well as selected<br />

charities.<br />

weeded, rooms spotless and<br />

clutter-free.<br />

READY YOUR HOME FOR<br />

OPEN DAYS<br />

Hide pocketable valuables,<br />

display fresh flowers or bowls<br />

of fruit, bake a batch of cookies<br />

for the homey smell, open the<br />

drapes, keep pets out of sight.<br />

DECIDE WHETHER<br />

TO DO YOUR OWN<br />

BUILDING INSPECTION<br />

It may save you time,<br />

especially with older homes,<br />

to identify—and potentially<br />

solve—problems your buyer’s<br />

inspection will discover later.<br />

SPOTLIGHT ON SELWYN’S<br />

PROPERTY MARKET<br />

Chris Flanagan heads up Bayleys <strong>Selwyn</strong> which has offices in Rolleston, Darfield,<br />

and Leeston. With close to 40 years’ experience selling real estate in <strong>Selwyn</strong>,<br />

Chris is our expert on the ground when it comes to the local property market.<br />

A buoyant local market with strong demand<br />

Chris says, “The last couple of years<br />

have been unprecedented for property<br />

sales here and throughout New Zealand.<br />

I’ve not seen anything like it.”<br />

“Since that high, the market has dipped<br />

for several reasons. Fewer people are<br />

returning to New Zealand and interest<br />

rates have risen. But if you compare the<br />

local property market before Covid to<br />

where we are now, we’re still well ahead.”<br />

“<strong>Selwyn</strong> District is one of the fastest growing<br />

regions in the country, so there’s plenty of<br />

demand, and we’ve a database of people<br />

keen to move to the area. We are seeing<br />

residential properties under a million have<br />

slowed slightly, but good quality lifestyle<br />

blocks in excess of 1.5 million are turning over<br />

quite nicely, and open home attendance for<br />

all types of rural properties are up this year.”<br />

The <strong>Selwyn</strong> region is still seen by many as<br />

good value and it offers a fantastic lifestyle<br />

with so many amenities on its door step<br />

and all within easy commuting distance.<br />

A record-breaking year for the<br />

Bayleys Canterbury Country team<br />

Selling more farmland than any other<br />

agency in New Zealand, the Canterbury<br />

Country Team had a particularly strong<br />

year, finishing 2022 with sales of $331<br />

million, a $90 million increase on 2021.<br />

Chris says, “In <strong>Selwyn</strong> we have had some<br />

outstanding sales of quality flat land<br />

irrigated units. One sale in particular was a<br />

250-hectare Burnham dairy farm achieving<br />

a record-breaking sale of $60,000 per<br />

hectare. $60,000 hasn’t been achieved in<br />

the province since 2<strong>01</strong>4.” As a result of this<br />

sale we have a strong list of cash buyers<br />

looking to purchase blue chip dairy farms<br />

and support blocks on the Canterbury<br />

plains and we are on the hunt for quality<br />

properties that we can quote these buyers.<br />

Despite local and global challenges “the rural<br />

property market performed strongly last year.<br />

Weather, seasonal staff shortages, legislation,<br />

the global supply chain, and inflation all<br />

have a knock-on effect on the value of rural<br />

properties. So, it’s extremely encouraging<br />

to see the local market perform so well.”<br />

Property experts who live and work locally<br />

The Bayleys <strong>Selwyn</strong> team consists of 26<br />

agents giving a combination of experience<br />

and fresh young talent. To mention a few,<br />

in our Rolleston office Andrew Taylor, Nick<br />

& Sarah Booth and Helen Lee have worked<br />

in Rolleston and Lincoln for many years.<br />

We also have exceptional young people<br />

in Amelia Nisbet, Sam Chamberlain and<br />

John Bailey all stamping their mark in<br />

the industry. Jo McIntosh and Adrienne<br />

Goodeve are top performers in Darfield and<br />

they have recently been joined by Karen<br />

Beatty. Both Jo and Adrienne have won<br />

many national awards for Bayleys which<br />

is an amazing feat for a smaller town like<br />

Darfield. Achieving these hefty awards<br />

certainly proves that they are dominating<br />

that Darfield market. Suzy McPherson<br />

and John Bailey are our Leeston experts,<br />

operating out of our very prominent Leeston<br />

office. Jo Sheppard offers rural property<br />

management and inspections of farm houses.<br />

Chris explains “The team live and work in<br />

the <strong>Selwyn</strong> District, they are all very active in<br />

their communities in one way or another, so<br />

there aren’t many situations when it comes<br />

to real estate dealings that they haven’t<br />

encountered, Chris says they can offer sound<br />

advice whether you’re selling or buying.”<br />

Doyleston 1352 Leeston Road<br />

Land of opportunity<br />

Looking to add dairy support or arable land to your portfolio, a lease block, or perhaps a small farm? This<br />

37.8112-hectare property, in two titles near the township of Leeston presents plenty of opportunities to build on<br />

current performance or develop to fulfil your ambitions. The property has undergone major redevelopment<br />

recently with new tracks, cattle yards, irrigation pump, an electrical switch gear and a new stock water system along<br />

with regrassing – really all the hard work has been done for the new owner. With flat contour and irrigated via a<br />

Rotorainer, the versatile land is currently used as dairy support, but would also be well suited to arable sheep and<br />

beef grazing. Subdivided into five paddocks, there are plenty of options; including the ability to build a dwelling on<br />

both titles. The desirable location is minutes from the local communities of Leeston and Doyleston.<br />

Lincoln 7 Hollard Crescent<br />

Inspiring Location, Exclusive Living<br />

If you're after a brand new home but can't be bothered with the design and build process, then look no further! This<br />

contemporary property has been thoughtfully planned to make the most of the available space. Three generously<br />

proportioned bedrooms are complemented by two lovely bathrooms (including a fully tiled ensuite off the master)<br />

and a fully tiled family bathroom with a stand-alone bath. The well-configured living areas, which include an open<br />

living with cathedral ceiling, a dining area and medial room, provides plenty of versatility. The kitchen is both stylish<br />

and highly functional; double glazing and a ducted heatpump conspire to create a warm and inviting atmosphere,<br />

and ranch sliders provide seamless access outside. The easy-care section was designed to minimise upkeep and<br />

maximise leisure time, with a private, sun-soaked outdoor deck providing the perfect spot to unwind with family and<br />

friends. The icing on the cake is the double, internal access, carpeted garage. The location is as enticing as the home<br />

itself, with the wealth of amenities and parks close by - helping to protect and enhance your investment. With our<br />

vendor's attentions already fixed on their next project this warm and inviting home lies vacant, awaiting its new<br />

owners. Contact us if you would like to arrange a viewing, or pop into one of our open homes.<br />
