Alleged burglar charged with second offence<br />

• By Dylan Smits<br />

A 49-YEAR-OLD has now been<br />

charged with two burglaries in<br />

the district.<br />

Daniel Cleveland Mcgill pleaded<br />

not guilty to two burglary<br />

charges and weapons charges<br />

when he appeared in court last<br />

week.<br />

It is alleged Mcgill entered<br />

a Prebbleton home in February<br />

and a Burnham address<br />

in March last year. During the<br />

Burnham incident, the property<br />

owner said he was pushed over<br />

when the intruder fled.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> had reported<br />

police had been waiting for DNA<br />

results in relation to the Burnham<br />

burglary.<br />

A white Mercedes Sprinter<br />

campervan was believed to have<br />

been used in both burglaries.<br />

Mcgill had already been<br />

charged with a burglary in<br />

Trices Rd, Prebbleton, and<br />

appeared in the district court<br />

on March 22. In his second<br />

appearance last week an<br />

additional charge was laid for the<br />

Burnham burglary.<br />

Mcgill was remanded on bail<br />

until his next court appearance<br />

on July 15. He is also facing<br />

charges of three counts of possession<br />

of offensive weapons,<br />

namely an axe, BB gun and paring<br />

knife.<br />

These were allegedly found in<br />

his possession in Shand Cres,<br />

Riccarton, on March 21.<br />

SNAPPED: This distinctive Mercedes Sprinter camper van<br />

was connected to the two burglaries.<br />

Investigators<br />

reveal cause<br />

of Bridge fire<br />

IT COULD be at least two<br />

months before the fire damaged<br />

The Bridge bar and eatery is<br />

back in business.<br />

Owners Murray and Melissa<br />

Smith say it could take that<br />

time to repair and get through<br />

consent processes for the<br />

Prebbleton venue.<br />

Oily tea towels which spontaneously<br />

combusted in an area<br />

near the eatery’s kitchen caused<br />

the damaging blaze about 5am<br />

last Wednesday.<br />

The fire did not spread into<br />

the main bar and eating area.<br />

Fire and Emergency NZ specialist<br />

fire investigator Mitchell<br />

Jeffery said there is a risk of<br />

fires occurring from spontaneous<br />

ignition when fabrics have<br />

been contaminated with oils or<br />

grease prior to washing, which<br />

can be common in commercial<br />

laundries.<br />

NEWS 3<br />

Grigg politicking over consents – Lyall<br />

DEPUTY MAYOR Malcolm<br />

Lyall says <strong>Selwyn</strong> MP Nicola<br />

Grigg’s comment on social<br />

media about the council needing<br />

to speed up consenting processes<br />

are “unfair” and “political<br />

messaging”.<br />

Grigg posted on her Facebook<br />

page the Government would be<br />

placing increased scrutiny on<br />

councils’ consenting process,<br />

and would look to allow a wider<br />

range of building supplies that<br />

can get consent.<br />

In the post she said: “Councils<br />

like the <strong>Selwyn</strong> District Council<br />

will need to speed up their<br />

consenting processes.<br />

“We believe this added<br />

scrutiny will provide greater<br />

certainty for the sector by<br />

encouraging best practice and<br />

driving innovation that will help<br />

to reduce delays and let builders<br />

get on with the job.”<br />

Lyall rebuffed the comment.<br />

“I think it’s an unfair call, the<br />

complexity of what our staff do<br />

is very high and we have to be<br />

extremely careful as to what we<br />

do when we do a consent, after<br />

all once we issue the consent, the<br />

council becomes liable.<br />

“I think it’s a dog whistle<br />

actually.”<br />

In politics, the term a dog<br />

whistle is the use of coded or<br />

suggestive language in political<br />

messaging to garner support<br />

REBUFFED: <strong>Selwyn</strong> MP Nicola Grigg’s comments about the council needing to speed up consenting processes have<br />

been labelled “unfair” by Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall.<br />

from a particular group without<br />

provoking opposition.<br />

Grigg’s office told <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

<strong>Times</strong> it was incorrect to<br />

interpret she was being critical<br />

of the council or its consenting<br />

department.<br />

“The office of Nicola Grigg<br />

frequently acts on behalf of<br />

constituents requesting advocacy<br />

or advice around the building<br />

consent process. The majority<br />

of queries or complaints are<br />

resolved in a timely manner.<br />

“The government is focused<br />

on cutting red tape, growing the<br />

economy, and making it easier<br />

and more affordable to build<br />

houses.”<br />

Grigg or her office would not<br />

respond to Lyall’s comments.<br />

Data shows in February the<br />

average building consent time<br />

in <strong>Selwyn</strong> was 11 days and 91<br />

per cent of consents were being<br />

processed within the statutory<br />

requirements of 20 working days.<br />

Christchurch City Council had<br />

an average processing<br />

time of 15 days and<br />

processed 79.3 per cent<br />

of all consents within the<br />

required period, while<br />

Waimakariri District<br />

Council had an average<br />

processing time of 14<br />

days and processed 97<br />

per cent of all consents<br />

within the required<br />

period.<br />

Today Homes<br />

managing director Jon Sanders,<br />

the company which has filed the<br />

highest number of consents in<br />

Mike<br />

Blackburn<br />

the district since December (101),<br />

said <strong>Selwyn</strong> was good to work<br />

with.<br />

“They (<strong>Selwyn</strong>) are definitely<br />

streets ahead of where the likes<br />

of Christchurch, Waimak, and<br />

Hurunui and everything<br />

else is. They look after us<br />

really well.”<br />

Canterbury<br />

Construction Report<br />

author Mike Blackburn<br />

said fewer consents<br />

because of the building<br />

downturn had helped<br />

improve processing<br />

times.<br />

“The performance<br />

of processing times is<br />

relative (inverse) to the number<br />

of consents being processed,” he<br />

said.<br />

In December, the number of<br />

consents in <strong>Selwyn</strong> had dropped<br />

53 per cent, down to 62.<br />

Blackburn said with building<br />

consents at a five-year low,<br />

councils would not be hiring<br />

more staff. But that would need<br />

to change when the market<br />

improved in 12 months.<br />

Council acting executive<br />

director of development and<br />

growth Robert Love said it is<br />

always happy to share data with<br />

the Government.<br />

“We have always been happy to<br />

share our data and have done so<br />

regularly with MBIE (Ministry<br />

of Business Innovation and<br />

Employment). We also report<br />

on building consents and code<br />

of compliance data monthly to<br />

Statistics NZ.”<br />

• From page 1<br />

“The cause of the fire was determined<br />

to be spontaneous combustion<br />

of oily tea towels. Ignition<br />

happens because of the slow oxidation<br />

of the oil or fat residues in the<br />

more than eight hours,” he said.<br />

told the New Zealand Herald.<br />

happened at the low-security<br />

around the unit, the NZ Herald<br />

reported. The entire prison was<br />

locked down until 5pm and phone<br />

It is understood prisoners were<br />

unlocked to get their meals and<br />

were required to return to their<br />

New venue for service to remember<br />

GROWTH HAS prompted a<br />

shift in Rolleston’s Anzac Day<br />

service location away from its<br />

traditional home.<br />

The service will be held behind<br />

Te Ara Ātea, about 300m from<br />

its old location at the Rolleston<br />

Memorial Clock.<br />

It will start at 11am and parade<br />

attendees need to meet near the<br />

scout den at 10.15am.<br />

Rolleston Anzac committee<br />

chair Greg Knowles said the<br />

service was outgrowing its old<br />

venue.<br />

“Last year’s attendance<br />

was estimated at just<br />

under 2000 and the<br />

service always required<br />

the closure of the roads<br />

at the memorial clock<br />

intersection.”<br />

Knowles said council<br />

staff suggested the new<br />

town centre might be<br />

suitable location for the<br />

service, as no roads will<br />

need to be closed.<br />

“Despite the growing<br />

inconvenience, roading<br />

managers at the <strong>Selwyn</strong> District<br />

Council had always been very<br />

supportive of the Anzac service.<br />

However, in recent years both<br />

staff and councillors had politely<br />

reminded the committee that the<br />

new town centre plan would one<br />

day be completed and be a great<br />

Greg<br />

Knowles<br />

venue for future services.”<br />

The clock tower was a<br />

millennium project by the<br />

Rolleston Residents Association<br />

with support from other<br />

community groups. The base of<br />

the tower has memorial plaques<br />

for past wars.<br />

“Having some sort of memorial<br />

at the new venue was vital to<br />

the local Returned Services<br />

Association.<br />

“A temporary structure<br />

displaying replicas of the<br />

memorial clock’s plaques will<br />

be constructed for the<br />

service. Wreaths and<br />

poppies laid at the<br />

temporary memorial<br />

will be relocated to the<br />

memorial clock following<br />

the event,” Knowles said.<br />

He said the new venue<br />

also has benefits such as<br />

raised banking to provide<br />

better viewing.<br />

The parade will start<br />

on the pathway parallel to<br />

the netball and tennis courts,<br />

opposite the scout den on<br />

Christensen Pde and will travel a<br />

short distance to the location of<br />

the service.<br />

Connecting cultures and<br />

celebrating Kiwi music<br />

AS NEW ZEALAND gets ready to celebrate<br />

its vibrant musical heritage throughout<br />

May, local singer-songwriter Lisa Tui’s<br />

performance, Kūoro promises to be an<br />

enchanting evening of storytelling, original<br />

compositions, and traditional waiata.<br />

Lisa Tui Jonathan (Tainui, Ngāti Wairere,<br />

Ngāti Kahungunu) has been a prominent<br />

figure in the music scene for thirty years.<br />

Her performances, spanning genres<br />

from classical to jazz, reflect her deep<br />

connection to Māori culture. But what truly<br />

distinguishes Lisa, is her commitment to<br />

storytelling and community.<br />

With a background in musical theatre and<br />

vocal instruction, Lisa has taught singing for<br />

two decades, emphasising empowerment<br />

through music in various settings.<br />

Lisa’s recent accolade as the recipient of<br />

the Te Matatiki Toi Ora: Christchurch Arts<br />

Centre’s Artist in Residency speaks volumes<br />

about her contribution to the cultural<br />

landscape of the city.<br />

Through her residency, Lisa has not only<br />

honed her craft but also explored new<br />

avenues of creativity, such as improvisation<br />

and incorporating her love for traditional<br />

Taonga Pūoro, Māori instruments, into her<br />

performances.<br />

For Lisa, performance embodies more<br />

than just music – it’s a quest to share stories<br />

and create connections. Through Kūoro, Lisa<br />

and her band weave together narratives and<br />

melodies, entertaining audiences by sharing<br />

yarns of her reo Māori journey, and learning<br />

to learn through Kūoro – syllable by syllable.<br />

Departure bittersweet for publicans<br />

• By Daniel Alvey<br />

MERWYN AND Marie Gilmore<br />

have owned the Prebbleton<br />

Tavern since 1970 but now<br />

veteran publicans have decided<br />

it’s time to get out of the game,<br />

and have put it up for sale.<br />

Along with the tavern on the<br />

corner of Springs and Toswill<br />

Rds, a 2044m 2 block of land<br />

next to the pub is also up for<br />

sale. A medical centre owned by<br />

Prebbleton Health is confirmed<br />

for the land on the Springs Rd<br />

side of the tavern.<br />

“Expressions of interest are<br />

being sought for the remaining<br />

two lots on the site including the<br />

tavern,” they said.<br />

Construction of the medical<br />

centre is expected to start later<br />

this year.<br />

The Gilmores said they feel<br />

bittersweet about retirement.<br />

“We feel the timing is right . . .<br />

age and health have also played a<br />

part in the decision.<br />

“The business has been operating<br />

well through a time when<br />

hospo has been challenging. We<br />

still have our fair share of a competitive<br />

market which is exciting.<br />

“We will miss the people but<br />

look forward to more time with<br />

family,” they said,<br />

They originally only planned to<br />

stay three years.<br />

“We started with a three-year<br />

plan but that all changed when<br />

the business took off and a family<br />

came along. It’s been an exciting<br />

journey, one we look back on<br />

fondly.’’<br />

Son Shannon has been the<br />

general manager for 25 years<br />

after he came to help during the<br />

university holidays, and never left.<br />

Since 2004, the tavern has<br />

supported the Prebbleton<br />

Football Club, which Shannon<br />

has been the president of since its<br />

inception.<br />

The tavern has been operating<br />

since Edward Prebble built his<br />

shop on the site in the 1860s,<br />

and when the liquor part of<br />

his business became the most<br />

profitable, he turned it into a<br />

hotel. Since then it has seen<br />

various forms with the Gilmores<br />

adding extensions, including the<br />

restaurant.<br />

The pub is up for sale at the<br />

same time as Lincoln’s Famous<br />

Grouse Hotel which may be<br />

changing ownership. The Lincoln<br />

Club is considering an offer to sell<br />

the business.<br />

FOR SALE: After 54 years runnning the Prebbleton Tavern, Merwyn and Marie Gilmore<br />

have decided to sell the business.<br />

We are pleased to be able to offer this great list of events<br />

that require your support to make them successful.<br />

Syngenta’s SY Defiant wheat<br />

exceeds industry expectations<br />

SY Defiant, the latest winter wheat cultivar<br />

from Syngenta, is setting new industry<br />

standards in disease resistance alongside<br />

high yields. This exciting new variety<br />

is available through Cates, serving<br />

farmers across the Canterbury region.<br />

Developed in the UK and<br />

rigorously tested in New Zealand,<br />

SY Defiant, offers unmatched<br />

performance.<br />

“We are thrilled to finally<br />

introduce SY Defiant to the market,”<br />

said Paul Winter, agronomist at<br />

Cates.<br />

“It performed exceptionally well in the last<br />

two years of FAR’s Cereal Performance Trials,<br />

not only in yield, but in disease resistance as<br />

well.”<br />

Paul highlighted the practical benefits of<br />

growing SY Defiant.<br />

“With its robust disease resistance<br />

and minimal sprouting risk, SY Defiant<br />

represents a low cost, low risk option<br />

for our farming community.”<br />

FAR testing and trials have<br />

confirmed SY Defiant is among<br />

the top-performing winter wheat<br />

varieties on the market, consistently<br />

delivering high yields in various<br />

locations throughout the country<br />

and in both dryland and irrigated<br />

and short stiff straw provides easy<br />

LONG SERVICE: Director of music Major Graham Hickman leads the New<br />

Zealand Army Band at the Christchurch Town Hall. PHOTOS: NZDF<br />

Army band show<br />

commemorates<br />

60 years of music<br />

THE NEW ZEALAND Army Band<br />

has marked 60 years since the band was<br />

officially formed.<br />

To mark the milestone band members<br />

past and present recently took to the stage<br />

at the Christchurch Town Hall.<br />

Burnham-based director of music Major<br />

Graham Hickman said the show was a<br />

tremendous success.<br />

“This was all about honouring our veterans,<br />

our ‘living heritage’, whose efforts<br />

over the decades shaped the band into the<br />

world-class organisation it is today.<br />

“The current band is very much standing<br />

on the shoulders of giants, and it was great<br />

to be able to host so many legends over the<br />

weekend.”<br />

A member of the Army Band since 1985,<br />

and director of music since 2010, Hickman’s<br />

connection to the band runs deep.<br />

“There have been Hickmans in New Zealand’s<br />

military bands for five generations<br />

ON SHOW: The New Zealand Army<br />

Band at the town hall.<br />

now, so I feel a real sense of responsibility<br />

towards the band’s heritage,” he said.<br />

The band officially marks its formation<br />

date as <strong>April</strong> 5, 1964, when they were involved<br />

in their first official engagement for<br />

the opening of the Hall of Memories at the<br />

National War Memorial in Wellington.<br />

Legal Matters<br />

The importance of an<br />

Independent Trustee<br />

The establishment of a Family Trust<br />

has long been a common strategy<br />

for managing assets and protecting<br />

wealth. From a legal perspective,<br />

having an independent trustee for<br />

your Family Trust is, we believe,<br />

hugely important.<br />

An independent trustee can play a<br />

critical role in ensuring the integrity<br />

and effectiveness of the Family<br />

Trust. Unlike family members who<br />

may have personal interests or<br />

biases, an independent trustee<br />

should bring objectivity, impartiality<br />

and professional expertise to<br />

the decision-making process and<br />

overall trust management.<br />

Another key benefit of appointing<br />

an independent trustee is the<br />

mitigation of conflicts of interest<br />

among family members. Conflicts<br />

often arise regarding asset<br />

distribution, investment decisions,<br />

and the ongoing management of<br />

the Family Trust. An independent<br />

trustee can act as a neutral party,<br />

helping to ensure that decisions<br />

are made in accordance with the<br />

provisions of the Trust Deed and<br />

without favouritism.<br />

Having an independent trustee<br />

strengthens the credibility of the<br />

Family Trust. If a claim is made<br />

against a Trust, it is common for<br />

the Court to analyse the Trust’s<br />

arrangements to ensure that the<br />

Trust has been appropriately<br />

managed, and the trustees have<br />

acted in accordance with their legal<br />

obligations.<br />

If you have an existing family<br />

Trust, take a minute to consider<br />

whether your current trustees are<br />

appropriate by reflecting upon the<br />

following:<br />

1. Is your trustee familiar with the<br />

duties imposed upon them under<br />

the legislation and Trust Deed?<br />

2. Has your trustee been acting<br />

impartially?<br />

3. Do you have confidence that<br />

your trustee will consider your<br />

Memorandum of Wishes and their<br />

obligations to the beneficiaries?<br />

4. Will your trustee prevent the<br />

Trust being operated as if the<br />

assets were still personally owned?<br />

If you’ve answered “No” or “Unsure”<br />

to any of the above, it is time to<br />

review your trustee.<br />

Tavendale and Partners has an<br />

excellent Trust management<br />

programme which brings<br />

specialised knowledge and<br />

experience to the table, particularly<br />

in asset management and trust<br />

administration. We work closely<br />

with accountants and other<br />

professionals to help ensure that<br />

your Trust is fit for purpose and<br />

compliant with the legislation.<br />

The appointment of an<br />

independent trustee is not only<br />

a prudent legal decision, but an<br />

important step in safeguarding<br />

your Trust’s integrity. By entrusting<br />

the role to an independent<br />

professional, you can have<br />

confidence in the long-term<br />

benefits of successful robust trust<br />

arrangements, providing peace of<br />

mind for generations to come.<br />

photographic memories.<br />

Fietje developed a passion for<br />

portraying landscapes during<br />

his early 20s and teaching in<br />

Hanmer Springs provided the<br />

perfect backdrop.<br />

Arthur’s Pass then took<br />

prominence and he soon<br />

broadened his canvas to<br />

Queenstown and Wanaka.<br />

Now 41, the father-of-two<br />

should soon enjoy greater exposure<br />

as negotiations are under<br />

way to hang a print of his most<br />

time-consuming oil painting,<br />

the Arthur’s Pass railway station,<br />

on a wall behind the Tranz<br />

Alpine check-in at KiwiRail’s<br />

Addington terminal.<br />

Fietje applied some finishing<br />

touches to this 350-hour labour<br />

of love in the terminal late last<br />

month, once passengers had set<br />

off for Greymouth.<br />

Art on public display outside<br />

of a gallery setting is a positive<br />

development for Fietje, who has<br />

worked full-time as a realism<br />

painter since returning home<br />

from Hong Kong – the second<br />

of two overseas teaching assignments<br />

– in 2022.<br />

“I hope to solidify my place in<br />

the landscape market,” he said.<br />

“There’s a lot of abstract artists<br />

out there and a lot of impressionism.<br />

Realism has taken a<br />

back seat to the other ways of<br />

making art.”<br />

Fietje’s artistic talent became<br />

apparent at Middleton Grange<br />

School, where he spent his primary<br />

and secondary education.<br />

“I started winning little<br />

colouring-in competitions when<br />

I was six or seven years old. In<br />

high school I was first in art a<br />

few years in a row, that was my<br />

thing, I was the arty kid.”<br />

In those days he was drawing<br />

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,<br />

cars and animals. Dad had<br />

10 acres on Jowers Rd, West<br />

Melton.<br />

“I lived on a pig farm so I drew<br />

a lot of pigs, cows . . . our house.<br />

Anything that was around me,<br />

nothing really specific,” he said.<br />

Fietje started dipping a flat<br />

PASS MARK: Sean Fietje works on his representation of<br />

the Arthur’s Pass railway station. Fietje’s talent was evident<br />

from an early age, as seen in his depiction of the heritagelisted<br />

original Middleton Grange Homestead on the school<br />

grounds when he was a 9-year-old pupil.<br />

brush in acrylics while in<br />

Hanmer, focusing on Mt Isobel<br />

while absorbing the techniques<br />

of Kiwi painters he admired.<br />

That catalogue includes Lisa<br />

Weiss, Grahame Sydney, Kees<br />

Bruin, Ivan Clarke, Tim Wilson<br />

and Christchurch’s Brian<br />

McCracken, who is inspired<br />

by the wide open spaces of<br />

the Canterbury and Otago<br />

countryside.<br />

Fietje earned his first commission<br />

in the tourist resort when<br />

a fellow teacher wanted the<br />

then-<strong>24</strong>-year-old to paint a rural<br />

scene for her husband’s birthday.<br />

“It was a farm in the Hurunui.<br />

There were a couple of quad<br />

bikes, some dogs and a herd of<br />

sheep overlooking the farm. It<br />

took me 60 hours for $400, I was<br />

so rapt just to have a hobby that<br />

paid for itself,” he said.<br />

Fietje also leafed through<br />

the family album, painting<br />

photographs taken during<br />

teenage tramping expeditions<br />

around Arthur’s Pass.<br />

The stopover en route to and<br />

from the West Coast is still a<br />

profitable source of inspiration.<br />

to rugged mountain landscapes<br />

“Once you’re familiar with an<br />

area and understand the colour<br />

temperature, and you’re familiar<br />

with which scenes are quite iconic<br />

you know what to look for,” he<br />

explained.<br />

So Klondyke Corner is a<br />

standout: “Most people have been<br />

there, they’ve had to stop the car<br />

and wait for others to cross the<br />

Bealey Bridge.”<br />

Fietje has experienced his own<br />

go-slow with that crossing point<br />

over the Waimakariri River on<br />

State Highway 73, not that he was<br />

caught in traffic.<br />

Depicting the single-lane bridge<br />

has been an ordeal, it took two<br />

attempts a combined 300 hours of<br />

trial and error.<br />

“I painted Bealey Bridge about<br />

five years ago, I got<br />

about 80 hours in<br />

and I had to throw<br />

it out, I just didn’t<br />

have the skill level.<br />

“I couldn’t figure<br />

it out and I didn’t<br />

have the time to<br />

solve the problems<br />

(he was teaching<br />

art in South Africa).<br />

The riverbed, I just<br />

couldn’t figure it<br />

out.”<br />

When he, wife<br />

Daniella and<br />

their boys Leo (4-½) and James<br />

(19 months) settled back in<br />

Christchurch, Fietje’s perseverance<br />

demanded a return to Bealey<br />

Bridge.<br />

“It wasn’t until 4 o’clock in the<br />

afternoon there was finally a really<br />

soft light source and you got all<br />

the shadows crossing the road. It<br />

ticked a few of the boxes I look for<br />

in a painting.<br />

“I really want people to feel<br />

they’re literally standing in front<br />

of that view and looking at that<br />

scene, really feeling that they’re<br />

there.<br />

“The only way you can do that<br />

is by upping the detail and trying<br />

to nail the colours as closely as<br />

possible.<br />

“There’s something about<br />

having a photograph enlarged,<br />

you’ve got all the pixels, but even<br />

if you’ve got a really, really good<br />

camera, you can still see it was<br />

SELF PORTRAIT: Sean<br />

Fietje, aged 10.<br />

taken by a camera.<br />

“The camera doesn’t necessarily<br />

pick up all the colours and the<br />

shadows, all the greens of the<br />

leaves. It can only do so much.<br />

“I take a few notes when I’m<br />

out there, then to turn that scene<br />

into a painting where you’re using<br />

literally pure colour from a tube<br />

and then have that in front of you.<br />

It’s quite an amazing experience.<br />

It’s sort of hard to explain really.”<br />

A picture can be worth a<br />

thousand words. And several<br />

thousand dollars.<br />

His second version of Bealey<br />

Bridge sold for $22,000 last<br />

November to a Christchurch<br />

transport, distribution and storage<br />

company founder who had<br />

travelled the route hundreds of<br />

times.<br />

Bealey Bridge<br />

took 250 hours<br />

to produce, the<br />

troublesome<br />

riverbed was<br />

repainted six<br />

times.<br />

“I started trying<br />

to paint every<br />

individual rock<br />

and that wasn’t<br />

working,” Fietje<br />

admitted.<br />

“I did the same<br />

pattern right<br />

across and then I realised the<br />

pattern changes between the right<br />

and left, I figured it out.”<br />

Fietje, who has never taken<br />

an art class as a student, is still<br />

mastering landscapes, though he<br />

is pleased with his development<br />

since painting his fellow teacher’s<br />

farm and equipment.<br />

“Over years and years of looking<br />

at landscapes through the lens of<br />

an artist you start to understand<br />

how to create certain effects. I<br />

know how to use tone now, to<br />

push things in the distance really,<br />

really far back,” he said.<br />

“The palette is also very limited<br />

now, I use five or six colours now,<br />

it used to be 15. I pretty much only<br />

use one green.”<br />

Retiring cop earns bravery medal<br />

for Akaroa harbour rescue mission<br />

SENIOR CONSTABLE Tony<br />

Maw did not receive a standard<br />

retirement gift at his farewell from<br />

the police force.<br />

His act of bravery to rescue a<br />

woman from a floating vehicle<br />

was recognised by the Royal Humane<br />

Society of New Zealand.<br />

Maw was presented with a<br />

bronze medal for his selfless<br />

response when realising a car had<br />

ended up in French Bay, Akaroa,<br />

shortly after the off-duty officer<br />

from Rangiora had completed<br />

the Little River Rail Trail bicycle<br />

route.<br />

He was with friends driving<br />

into the tourist town on October<br />

18, 2021, 28 years to the day he<br />

graduated from the Trentham<br />

Police College, when one of the<br />

group spotted a car in the water.<br />

It had rolled down the boat<br />

ramp and was drifting with the<br />

tide away from shore.<br />

“I could see a woman in the<br />

driver’s seat, but she wasn’t<br />

responding to anyone on shore,”<br />

Maw said.<br />

“The car was filling with water.<br />

I didn’t stop to think. I just got my<br />

gear off, chucked my bike shorts<br />

on and jumped in.<br />

“You hear people say they<br />

didn’t really think about it, they<br />

just acted – that’s a real thing, it’s<br />

RESCUE: Maw propels a woman to shore in Akaroa after rescuing her from a car.<br />

exactly what happened,” he said.<br />

Maw swam about 20 metres to<br />

the car and discovered the doors<br />

were locked.<br />

However, the passenger window<br />

was down, so he clambered over<br />

the bonnet as the car was inundated.<br />

“By the time I got to the passenger<br />

side, the woman had made<br />

her way there too and she kind of<br />

fell into my arms.<br />

“I flipped her over and paddled<br />

her back.<br />

“To be honest, I was a bit<br />

out of practice. The last time I<br />

performed a water rescue was<br />

28 years ago in a pool at Police<br />

College – there was a moment I<br />

wondered if I was doing it right,”<br />

he said.<br />

Maw’s medal was accompanied<br />

by a citation which backgrounded<br />

his life-saving exploits.<br />

“It was later established the<br />

incident was a mental health<br />

crisis for the woman, and Senior<br />

Constable Maw’s actions saved<br />

this woman’s life and allowed for<br />

ongoing mental health assistance<br />

to be provided.”<br />

Although there was a successful<br />

outcome, Maw was left disturbed.<br />

RECOGNITION: Senior<br />

Constable Tony Maw<br />

received his Royal Humane<br />

Society of New Zealand<br />

bronze medal from<br />

Canterbury Rural Area<br />

Commander Inspector Peter<br />

Cooper. ​<br />

“I had trouble sleeping afterwards,<br />

thinking about what<br />

would have happened if I didn’t<br />

get her out.<br />

“It was great to go back to work.<br />

I had a good chat to a mate who<br />

could talk from experience and he<br />

helped a lot,” he said.<br />

“I know all my workmates<br />

would have done the same thing,<br />

we just play what’s in front of us.”<br />

Foulkes opens bowling on Black Caps debut<br />

• By Sam Coughlan<br />

DARFIELD’S ZAK Foulkes<br />

made his Black Caps debut in<br />

the third T20 against Pakistan in<br />

Rawalpindi on Monday.<br />

Foulkes opened the bowling<br />

finishing wicketless with figures<br />

of 0/39.<br />

He had Saim Ayub LBW in his<br />

second over, but the decision was<br />

overturned on review due to an<br />

inside edge.<br />

Foulkes was down to bat at No<br />

8 but was not needed.<br />

Mark Chapman top scored<br />

with 87 not out to chase down<br />

Pakistan’s total of 178 with almost<br />

two overs to spare. Foulkes<br />

was the second Darfield player<br />

to play for the Black Caps after<br />

all-rounder Henry Shipley made<br />

his debut last year.<br />

Foulkes comes from a<br />

family of cricketers.<br />

His father Glen played for<br />

Canterbury Country from 2009<br />

to 2012, while his brothers Liam<br />

and Robbie currently play for<br />

Canterbury Country.<br />

Robbie was also a part of<br />

the New Zealand team at the<br />

under-19 cricket World Cup<br />

earlier this year.<br />

Foulkes went to St Andrew’s<br />

College, where he won the<br />

Gillette Cup one day competition<br />

with the first XI in 2019.<br />

•The fourth match of<br />

the five game series starts<br />

competition when they take on a<br />

well-rested Waihora on Saturday.<br />

Southbridge’s bonus point win<br />

over Ashley last Saturday saw<br />

them move into the top two in<br />

pool B, a point ahead of Waihora.<br />

Waihora were awarded a win<br />

over Ashburton Celtic who<br />

defaulted following the death of<br />

one of their players, Henry Wild,<br />

last Tuesday.<br />

Wild, 22, died<br />

in a workplace<br />

incident at a farm<br />

in Newland,<br />

Ashburton.<br />

Southbridge<br />

captain Luke<br />

Palmer (left),<br />

currently sidelined with a shoulder<br />

injury suffered in training, said<br />

this season was one of the most<br />

competitive he has seen in recent<br />

years.<br />

“Everyone’s there or thereabouts,<br />

so it’s going to come down to a<br />

few small things in games that are<br />

going to decide it.<br />

“I think we’ve just got to make<br />

sure we stay true to our game<br />

plan and not go too far away from<br />

that.”<br />

Southbridge play away on<br />

Saturday against Waihora who<br />

won’t have played for two weeks<br />

following their default win.<br />

Palmer said Waihora will be<br />

fresh after a week off.<br />

“It’s quite a physical competition<br />

so having that week off might be<br />

good for them.<br />

“But you never take them lightly<br />

either way. They’re always a very<br />

good team and always get up for<br />

these big clashes.<br />

“That’s going to be a hard<br />

asking, especially over at<br />

Waihora.”<br />

Springston also claimed<br />

victory against Darfield over the<br />

weekend.<br />

Saturday’s other matches<br />

will see winless Lincoln travel<br />

o Oxford, while Hornby will<br />

visit table-topping Glenmark-<br />

Cheviot who beat Prebbleton last<br />

week.<br />

Prebbleton will look to bounce<br />

back from their loss when they<br />

travel to Hurunui, while Darfield<br />

head to Ashburton to play Celtic.<br />

Springston visit Ohoka and West<br />

PREBBLETON ARE gearing<br />

up for their first foray into<br />

New Zealand’s oldest football<br />

competition on Monday.<br />

The club has entered the<br />

Chatham Cup, the nationwide<br />

knockout competition which<br />

was won last year by Christchurch<br />

United.<br />

Prebbleton will be taking<br />

on Halswell United in the<br />

preliminary round at Kakaha<br />

Park on Monday night – most<br />

likely the toughest opponents<br />

they could have drawn.<br />

But while Prebbleton may be<br />

wearing the club’s green kits, on<br />

the scorecard they will be High<br />

School Old Boys.<br />

President Shannon Gilmore<br />

said Mainland Football’s policy<br />

of ‘no new clubs’ has forced<br />

them to come to an agreement<br />

with HSOB. Prebbleton players<br />

register with them and compete<br />

under their banner, but form<br />

their own teams and play in<br />

their own kits.<br />

Since joining Mainland’s<br />

competitions more than 10 years<br />

ago, Prebbleton have played<br />

under the banners of Hornby<br />

United and Christchurch United<br />

and are now with HSOB.<br />

But the team who takes the<br />

field on Monday will be wholly<br />

comprised of Prebbleton players<br />

– Gilmore said HSOB had no<br />

players interested in entering.<br />

Prebbleton aren’t the only<br />

team from the region in the<br />

League side <strong>Selwyn</strong> United<br />

receiving a bye and entering<br />

at the next stage. First-tier<br />

Southern League clubs don’t<br />

compete in the preliminary<br />

round.<br />

Halswell are second in the<br />

Premiership (second-tier) while<br />

Prebbleton compete in division<br />

four, the seventh tier of the<br />

competition.<br />

Gilmore said it was a great opportunity<br />

for the club.<br />

“It’s good for the juniors to see<br />

the seniors having a go at something<br />

prestigious, and we’d hope<br />

to have a go next year as well<br />

and make it a regular fixture for<br />

the club.”<br />

Gilmore, who was one of<br />

the founding members of the<br />

club 20 years ago, said it was a<br />

“dream” to be in the Chatham<br />

Cup.<br />

preliminary round<br />

• Prebbleton (HSOB) v<br />

Halswell United<br />

Kakaha Park, Prebbleton,<br />

Monday <strong>April</strong> 29, 7pm<br />

“To have Prebbleton come this<br />

far and be playing under lights<br />

at Kakaha, football has certainly<br />

grown.<br />

“This is our biggest turnout.<br />

We’ve got more club members<br />

than we’ve ever had this year – I<br />

think we’ve grown almost 30 per<br />

cent. We’re certainly on the up.”<br />

Coach Simon Ward, who<br />

played in the Chatham Cup for<br />

HSOB in the 1990s, said his side<br />

were excited to play.<br />

“To them it’s just an occasion<br />

to go out there and have another<br />

game of footy and do it under<br />

lights against quality opposition.<br />

“We’re under no illusion that<br />

they’re five divisions higher than<br />

us.<br />

“We will do our best to play<br />

our best. And we’ll see what<br />

happens.”<br />

Ward said the result was<br />

irrelevant to him.<br />

“We just want to go out there<br />

and enjoy ourselves.<br />

“If we get hammered, we get<br />

hammered. If we can reduce<br />

the damage, we’ll reduce the<br />

damage. It’s about the occasion<br />

really.<br />

PETS & PAWS<br />

Helpful pet accessories<br />

Choosing the right pet accessories is<br />

essential for their comfort and safety.<br />

Collars, leads, and harnesses are<br />

available in various designs, patterns,<br />

and colours to suit your pet and your<br />

needs.<br />

Often, collars are the first item pet<br />

owners buy for their dogs or cats. They<br />

are useful for attaching identification<br />

tags, and some cat collars have bells to<br />

warn birds or GPS tracking devices.<br />

Breakaway collars for cats are designed<br />

to prevent choking or injury as they<br />

release if the collar gets caught on<br />

something. Collars are made from<br />

different materials, including leather,<br />

nylon, and eco-friendly options, and<br />

can feature reflective materials or stylish<br />

designs. To find the correct size for your<br />

pet’s collar, wrap a flexible measuring<br />

tape or string around the base of their<br />

neck (the broadest part) and leave a gap<br />

of two fingers’ width. For dogs, collars<br />

provide a point of control during walks<br />

when attached to a lead. However,<br />

collars might not be the best choice for<br />

dogs that pull or have respiratory issues,<br />

as they can put pressure on the neck.<br />

Although they take longer to fasten,<br />

harnesses are an excellent alternative<br />

to collars and may provide additional<br />

control when on a lead. They distribute<br />

pressure evenly across the chest and<br />

shoulders, reducing discomfort and<br />

strain on the neck and preventing<br />

choking and injury. Head halters or<br />

no-pull harnesses can offer better<br />

control and security and redirect the<br />

dog’s attention. To fit your dog for a<br />

harness, measure the broadest part of<br />

your dog’s chest or rib cage just behind<br />

the armpits of the front legs, and allow<br />

a few extra centimetres. Cats can also<br />

wear harnesses and lead, which enables<br />

them to explore the outdoors safely<br />

under supervision.<br />

Leads connect you to your pet. They<br />

come in various lengths and materials<br />

to suit your needs, including nylon and<br />

reflective leads for low light. If you’re<br />

after flexibility while walking your pet,<br />

retractable leads allow your pet to roam<br />

while you maintain control.<br />

Being a responsible pet owner,<br />

especially when out walking, means<br />

your pet is safe and comfortable while<br />

you maintain control. Ensure your pet’s<br />

accessories fit the intended purpose and<br />

that their collars, harnesses, and leads<br />

suit your budget and lifestyle.<br />

3 year old fellow. Marley loves people, cuddles, kids<br />

and gets on well with other dogs. He can take a while<br />

to settle in new situations but given time grows in<br />

Shot putter targeting Paralympic glory<br />

• By Joshua Vergeest<br />

IT’S A YEAR of athletics with<br />

the 20<strong>24</strong> Paris Olympic Games<br />

quickly approaching, but one<br />

Parafed athlete is already<br />

looking beyond this year’s<br />

games.<br />

Prebbleton 19-year-old Rorie<br />

Poff has had an inspirational rise<br />

in New Zealand para-athletics.<br />

A keen and extremely skilled<br />

shot putter, he has haemophilia<br />

A and cerebral palsy, which<br />

hinders his balance and<br />

coordination.<br />

Poff competes in the F34<br />

class, a category for field athletes<br />

with movement affected to a<br />

low degree in the chest and<br />

arms as well as heavily affected<br />

movement in the legs.<br />

Poff describes himself as<br />

not having “anything to do<br />

sports-wise” but figured shot put<br />

“would be a bit of fun”.<br />

He hasn’t looked back since<br />

becoming involved in the<br />

Parafed community in 2015.<br />

Representing New Zealand<br />

on two separate occasions, Poff<br />

has made a promising start<br />

to competing on the national<br />

stage. He finished fifth at the<br />

2022 Oceania track and field<br />

championships and won gold<br />

at the ACT championships in<br />

Canberra at the beginning of<br />

2023.<br />

FOCUS: Parafed athlete<br />

Rorie Poff has his sights<br />

set on competing in the<br />

F34 class shot put event<br />

at the 2028 Los Angeles<br />

Paralympics.<br />

PHOTOS: JOSHUA<br />

VERGEEST/ALISHA LOVRICH<br />

Poff’s ultimate goal is to<br />

compete and win gold at the<br />

Paralympics. He narrowly<br />

missed out on an opportunity to<br />

qualify for this year’s games, but<br />

this hasn’t hampered his goal<br />

to make the 2028 event in Los<br />

Angeles.<br />

“I’m quite young. So there’s a<br />

lot to build up to . . . but I have<br />

made so much progress.”<br />

Parafed Canterbury sports<br />

manager Hadleigh Pierson, who<br />

works closely with Poff, said his<br />

talent, commitment and hard<br />

work would pay off.<br />

“I have no doubt he will<br />

achieve great things and be very<br />

successful in the future.”<br />

Outside of athletics<br />

competition, Poff has also been<br />

a part of the youth council<br />

of the Halberg Foundation, a<br />

charitable organisation set up<br />

to help people, regardless of<br />

physical ability, to be part of a<br />

community.<br />

Along with other youth<br />

counsellors from across the<br />

country, Poff connects with<br />

young people to share their<br />

stories, hardships, and successes.<br />

Halberg Canterbury advisor<br />

Mitchell Rhodes described<br />

Poff’s ability to “get stuck in like<br />

everyone else” as an example<br />

“for all of our young people, but<br />

also able-bodied people as well.”<br />

• By Sam Coughlan<br />

TWO SELWYN showjumpers<br />

will travel to China next month<br />

to represent New Zealand<br />

in the Asia and Pacific Cup<br />

Showjumping Challenge.<br />

Rose Bowden, 17, and Georgia<br />

Lewis, 15, are among a team<br />

of four Kiwis selected for the<br />

tournament for riders aged<br />

14-17, alongside Kate McKeen<br />

(Papatoetoe) and Caitlyn<br />

Wilkin (Warkworth).<br />

For Bowden, from Leeston<br />

and who belongs to the Rakaia<br />

Pony Club, it was an extra<br />

special call-up – her mum’s side<br />

of the family are from China.<br />

“I haven’t (been to China), so<br />

it’s all new,” she said.<br />

Bowden’s mother Suyin said<br />

for her daughter to compete in<br />

China was special.<br />

“We’ve sort of brought them<br />

(Rose and her sister) up to be in<br />

touch with their heritage a little<br />

bit.<br />

“She doesn’t speak the<br />

language or anything, but<br />

she’s aware that she’s got<br />

a connection to Asia, so it<br />

is definitely special in that<br />

respect.”<br />

Bowden was a non-travelling<br />

reserve for a trip to China last<br />

year, providing backup for the<br />

New Zealand team who finished<br />

fourth out of more than 20<br />

teams competing at the Saga<br />

Pony Club in Suzhou city.<br />

She said to finally get the callup<br />

was “really exciting’’.<br />

“It kind of felt like it was<br />

impossible, just out of reach, but<br />

now it’s happening.<br />

“We got an email – I didn’t<br />

end up opening it, mum did.<br />

“She told me in the morning,<br />

and I was so surprised. I was not<br />

expecting her to tell me that.”<br />

Lewis has been riding horses<br />

with the Springston Pony Club<br />

since she was three.<br />

“I’ve been riding since I can<br />

remember,” she said.<br />

“Every single day I’m either<br />

riding a horse or thinking about<br />

riding a horse.”<br />

She now helps out younger<br />

members in the same position<br />

she used to be.<br />

“It’s great to help out some<br />

of the younger members in the<br />

club at the age when I started.”<br />

She was surprised to get the<br />

message she was selected in the<br />

team for the China event.<br />

“I was bouncing off the wall.<br />

It was absolutely awesome. It’s a<br />

great opportunity,” she said.<br />

The pair are friends, having<br />

competed and trained with and<br />

against each other.<br />

“It’ll be nice (to have a<br />

familiar face),” said Bowden.<br />

The team departs for China<br />

next month.<br />

Everest Wildtrak sets new SUV benchmark<br />

THE WILDTRAK – one of<br />

most identifiable and desirable<br />

nameplates in the popular Ford<br />

Ranger ute range has transitioned<br />

to its SUV sibling the Ford Everest,<br />

where it’s poised to enjoy similar<br />

sales success.<br />

With its crisp assertive styling,<br />

class leading sophistication,<br />

refinement, safety, and immense<br />

on and off-road capabilities, it’s a<br />

large SUV that ticks all the boxes<br />

that matter.<br />

Tucked between the price<br />

leading $77,990 Everest Sport and<br />

$86,990 flagship Platinum model,<br />

the $84,490 Everest Wildtrak is<br />

okay rather than outstanding value<br />

for money. Those on a tighter<br />

new large SUV budget may find<br />

the $6500k premium over the<br />

keenly priced Sport variant a bit<br />

steep, and opt for this version, and<br />

pocket the change.<br />

However, those wanting the<br />

extra cred of the Wildtrak badge<br />

won’t see the heftier price as an<br />

issue. For them it’s money well<br />

spent, for the exclusivity factor<br />

alone including unique exterior<br />

and interior detailing and finishes,<br />

and a comprehensive suite of<br />

driver assistance systems.<br />

It intelligently blends tough<br />

truck credentials in a package<br />

Motoring with Bob Nettleton<br />

loaded with car-like comforts to<br />

satisfy those seeking more style<br />

and off-road attitude in their fullsize<br />

SUV.<br />

The exterior builds on the<br />

muscular lines of the second<br />

generation Everest with a dash a<br />

sporty sophistication lobbed into<br />

the mix.<br />

It’s offered with a distinctive<br />

yellow paint job that featured on<br />

the test drive vehicle. This is the<br />

first time this colour has been<br />

offered on any Everest and is a<br />

designated Wildtrak hue that<br />

creates an important visual pointof-difference<br />

over its two siblings.<br />

If you want an Everest with an<br />

extra bit visual grunt, then this one<br />

has it nailed.<br />

The ‘look at me’ treatment that’s<br />

liberally used on this vehicle is at<br />

play on multiple fronts including a<br />

unique grille and bumper, 20-inch<br />

alloy wheels with grey detailing<br />

that extends to the grille surround<br />

and mirror caps.<br />

I also liked the good-looking<br />

yet functional side steps complete<br />

nifty steel inserts.<br />

The test vehicle was garnished<br />

with Wildtrak logos. Among the<br />

targets are the front doors, tailgate,<br />

and leading edge of the bonnet. In<br />

fact, it has more badges than a boy<br />

scout jamboree.<br />

The Everest Sport uses a<br />

full-time 4WD system with six<br />

selectable drive modes, Normal,<br />

Eco, Tow/Haul, Slippery for dodgy<br />

on road conditions, and Mud/Ruts<br />

and Sand for more exacting offroad<br />

situations. Tow/Haul cleverly<br />

manipulates gearshift timing to<br />

maintain power for hill climbing,<br />

or the right amount of engine<br />

braking on down hill gradients. It’s<br />

not afraid of heavy-duty tow jobs,<br />

backed up with a 3.5 tonne braked<br />

towing capacity.<br />

An on-demand four-wheel<br />

drive system allows the vehicle<br />

to be driven in four-wheel<br />

drive on high-traction surfaces.<br />

When activated it continuously<br />

distributes power between the<br />

front and rear axles to maximize<br />

performance over the trickiest onroad<br />

surfaces.<br />

With 184kW of power and<br />

600Nm of torque the 3.0-litre V6<br />

turbo diesel arrived here with a big<br />

and well-deserved reputation.<br />

Strong acceleration and<br />

excellent low-speed pulling power<br />

enable it to effortlessly front foot<br />

the many and varied challenges<br />

posed by our tough roads, terrain<br />

and weather.<br />

Wind and road noise on the<br />

open road are barely audible in<br />

the passenger compartment. The<br />

motor shows its all-round class, by<br />

making light work of demanding<br />

long haul trips that would weigh<br />

Ratings out of 10: Performance 8; Handling 8 Build Quality<br />

7; Comfort 7; Passenger and Load Space 8; Value for<br />

money: 7; Safety – Five Star ANCAP rating.<br />

Overall points out of 10: 8<br />

heavily on the shoulders of<br />

lesser vehicles. It rolls back the<br />

kilometres with ease to deliver you<br />

at your destination relaxed and<br />

refreshed.<br />

The 10-speed automatic is<br />

well schooled in the art of quick<br />

well-judged gear changes, expertly<br />

matching the right ratio for most<br />

imaginable driving scenarios.<br />

A spacious seven-seat cabin has<br />

room for everyone. A power-fold<br />

third-row of seats, and fold-flat<br />

second row, add both flexibility<br />

and versatility to this impressive<br />

SUV. An inviting leather-trimmed<br />

cabin will also tempt buyers,<br />

especially those who explore it<br />

further and discover the driver and<br />

front passenger seats have 10-and<br />

eight-way power adjustments,<br />

along with heating and cooling<br />

functions.<br />

The central focus of the techladen<br />

cabin is a 12.4-inch fully<br />

digital instrument cluster and<br />

the portrait-oriented 12-inch<br />

touchscreen that controls Ford’s<br />

SYNC® 4A infotainment system.<br />

In Wildtrak guise it also scores<br />

a ten-speaker stereo system and<br />

wireless device charging and<br />

supports wireless Apple CarPlay<br />

and Android Auto.<br />

Top-notch safety and drive<br />

assist technology are to the fore<br />

with nine airbags, lane departure<br />

warning, plus rear cross traffic<br />

alert. The latter warning you of<br />

approaching vehicles you may<br />

not be able to see when reversing<br />

out of car parks. Keeping an allencompassing<br />

electronic eye out<br />

for hazards around the vehicle is<br />

an excellent 360-degree camera<br />

with clean and sharp imagery.<br />

Road holding and handling sets<br />

a new benchmark for a large SUV<br />

in this price bracket. For its size<br />

and weight, it feels remarkably<br />

light and agile to drive over<br />

undulating roads, and through<br />

corners with the sort of pace and<br />

composure I have rarely found in a<br />

vehicle of this size.<br />

Accurate and well-weighted<br />

steering maintains good lines<br />

of communication between the<br />

driver and the action unfolding<br />

under the front wheels, ensuring<br />

they work as one and aren’t second<br />

guessing what each other is doing.<br />

The Everest is a true champion<br />

that revels in the rough stuff. My<br />

off-tarmac excursions were limited<br />

to a selection of weathered farm<br />

tracks that offered up a few muddy<br />

hill climbs as well. All of these were<br />

easily dispatched by the test vehicle<br />

with a minimal effort, leaving<br />

me with a sense that its 4WD<br />

capabilities extended well beyond<br />

mine.<br />

The Wildtrak is an interesting<br />

and worthy addition to the ranks<br />

of New Zealand’s favourite full size<br />

‘go anywhere’ SUVs and it’s right at<br />

the top of its game.<br />

We need your help to fill our beds.<br />

Cholmondeley Children’s Centre has<br />

23 beds for tamariki to stay during<br />

times of whānau stress or crisis. On<br />

average just 17 of these beds are filled<br />

due to resourcing constraints.<br />

Every empty bed is a missed<br />

opportunity to support a child in need.<br />

Donate today to give Canterbury<br />

tamariki a safe place to sleep.<br />

Cholmondeley Children’s Centre provides<br />

short term emergency or planned respite care<br />

for tamariki when they need extra support due<br />

to complications at home.<br />

Cholmondeley is an independent charity<br />

and costs just under $3,000,000 per year to<br />

run. 20% of this figure is met by Government<br />

funding, and the remaining 80% comes from<br />

the generous support of the Canterbury<br />

community.<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 />

Money<br />

taken<br />

after big<br />

pokie win<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 />

bag.<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 />

THESE DAYS more and more<br />

Kiwis are growing their own<br />

herbs and vegetables.<br />

And more and more gardeners<br />

are taking a natural and organic<br />

approach to gardening. This<br />

means less chemicals and more<br />

thought about what plants might<br />

be beneficial to grow nex to each<br />

other.<br />

This approach of growing<br />

certain plants for the benefit of<br />

other plants is ca led companion<br />

planting and the idea has been<br />

around for centuries.<br />

And marigolds are probably the<br />

most famous companion plant<br />

around.<br />

This brightly coloured flower<br />

just happens to produce a strong<br />

sme l which repels many insects<br />

and their roots also contain a<br />

pesticidal chemical which ki ls<br />

nematodes (microscopic parasites<br />

living in the soil).<br />

Marigolds are said to deter<br />

aphids from tomatoes and roses,<br />

and nematodes from potatoes and<br />

other root crops.<br />

They’re also said to keep<br />

white cabbage moths away from<br />

brassicas and wi l deter flies and Mass-planted, they wi l create a<br />

animal welfare organisation accepts some uses of<br />

animals by humans provided their physical, health and<br />

behavioural needs are met.<br />

While SPCA has tried for years to work with the<br />

greyhound industry to improve greyhound welfare,<br />

the organisation says the industry has been unable to<br />

adequately address its animal welfare problems.<br />

The animal welfare group believes it is clear the<br />

greyhound industry cannot meet its animal welfare<br />

obligations and is no longer acceptable in New Zealand<br />

society. A recent survey carried out by an independent<br />

research company on behalf of SPCA reports that<br />

74% of New Zealanders would vote to ban greyhound<br />

racing in a referendum.<br />

yourself protected.<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 />

use.<br />

• Open bags of soil products<br />

slowly, away from the face.<br />

• Make sure the working area<br />

(for example, the glasshouse or<br />

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

• See a doctor if you develop a<br />

flu-like i lness 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 />

Marketing your property<br />

– what does it mean?<br />

Marketing a property is<br />

more than presentation<br />

and advertising.<br />

Conceptually, marketing is<br />

identifying what prospective buyers<br />

are looking for then providing this. For<br />

example, larger homes and sections<br />

may appeal more to families. Young<br />

couples starting out, generally have<br />

tight budgets leading them to smaller<br />

properties, while older people may be<br />

looking to downsize.<br />

Brand new has a particular appeal<br />

however there will always be a market<br />

for established homes. Having a<br />

picture in your mind of the type of<br />

buyer will help in determining the<br />

features to emphasise.<br />

If repairs and maintenance need<br />

to be carried out before putting the<br />

property on the market, seek the<br />

advice of a real estate agent. They<br />

can advise on what tasks are worth<br />

completing and what might be<br />

unnecessary expense.<br />

Installing a new kitchen or changing<br />

the carpet may lift the house but will<br />

the expense be recouped in the sale<br />

price? On the other hand, modernising<br />

an outdated kitchen or bathroom<br />

could make a huge difference to<br />

the look of the place. Avoid going<br />

overboard unless the capital value of<br />

properties in the area justifies this.<br />

Real estate agents are in contact with<br />

prospective buyers so aware of what<br />

they are looking for. Draw on their<br />

expertise and advice to help make the<br />

most of the selling opportunity.<br />

Establishing a relevant and fair price<br />

for a property is important. Most<br />

agents calculate this based on the price<br />

properties in the area have sold for,<br />

and what a particular property has to<br />

offer. A unique or exceptional property<br />

may justify a higher price, though<br />

run-down properties can gain more<br />

than they appear to merit. This might<br />

be due to the area or other factors that<br />

suggest a good investment.<br />

When promoting a property, mix it<br />

up and be creative so your property<br />

stands out from the rest. TradeMe<br />

is a must; checked by most people<br />

looking to buy. Present the features the<br />

property offers as benefits to potential<br />

buyers.<br />

Erect a sign outside the property.<br />

People stop and look at photographs<br />

and this might spark sufficient<br />

interest for them to visit an open<br />

home. Spending a fortune on massive<br />

advertising campaigns in every media<br />

might seem a way to attract potential<br />

buyers but may be an unnecessary<br />

expense without the return. A better<br />

philosophy could be a little often.<br />

This will depend on the value of the<br />

property, your budget and how best to<br />

reach target buyers.<br />

Buyer perception is also significant.<br />

For example, properties that sit for a<br />

while can become stale. Resting the<br />

property by taking it off the market for<br />

a short time, then relisting perhaps in<br />

spring or when sales in the area appear<br />

to lift a little, can make a difference.<br />

However, if a property does not sell<br />

immediately there is no need for panic<br />

or dropping the price. It may simply be<br />

that the right buyer has not yet come<br />

along. If the mix is right your property<br />

will sell.<br />

If a property does not sell<br />

immediately there is no need for<br />

panic or dropping the price.

Your guide to all things Real Estate<br />

in the <strong>Selwyn</strong> District<br />

Kitchen updates on a budget<br />

Whether it’s a dated kitchen or you want to refresh its look, a<br />

kitchen makeover needn’t cost the earth. Renovating your kitchen<br />

is better for the planet and will save you money compared to<br />

a complete overhaul. A few simple changes can make a wellfunctioning<br />

kitchen look its best again.<br />

Clear the clutter<br />

One of the simplest and cheapest easy<br />

fixes is to use your pantry effectively,<br />

choosing storage systems to avoid clutter on<br />

the benchtop. With limited space, a simple<br />

shelf can provide extra storage. Hide your<br />

rubbish bins using in-built hideaways or<br />

repurpose a cabinet to hold a bin.<br />

Use pops of colour<br />

Replace your small appliances, including<br />

kettle, toaster, and utensils, with coloured<br />

ones to refresh the area if they are on<br />

display. Adding pot plants or potted herbs<br />

can also bring colour into your kitchen.<br />

Repaint surfaces<br />

A new coat of paint will be inexpensive<br />

and instantly lift your kitchen walls. While<br />

some cabinets can be painted, laminated<br />

surfaces may require a re-spray from a<br />

kitchen renovation company. This option is<br />

more cost-effective than total replacement<br />

and dramatically changes your kitchen’s<br />

appearance.<br />

Replace cabinet or drawer<br />

fronts<br />

Change out the cupboard and drawer<br />

fronts for a brand-new look. Stores provide<br />

many styles of stock fronts to suit your<br />

budget, but for customised fronts, see<br />

kitchen design companies.<br />

Update hardware<br />

Transform your cabinets and drawers by<br />

switching out your old handles. Handles<br />

may be an inexpensive way to enhance the<br />

look of your kitchen. Ensure the screws<br />

for the new handles will align with your<br />

previous handles to avoid the need to fill<br />

them.<br />

Replace the benchtop<br />

Replacing your benchtop can be an<br />

instant change and be a standout feature in<br />

your kitchen, with many finishes available<br />

to suit your budget and style.<br />

Change the tapware<br />

If you replace your sink, select new<br />

tapware from the numerous designs<br />

available, including functional pull-down<br />

spouts.<br />

Splashback style<br />

For DIYers, a splashback update may be<br />

an easy and affordable project to complete.<br />

With a range of acrylic, glass or tile<br />

splashbacks, you can choose a style with<br />

colour or texture. However, leaving it to the<br />

professionals to install it won’t break the<br />

bank.<br />

Refresh flooring<br />

New flooring is another possible upgrade.<br />

For a timber effect, laminate flooring is<br />

durable and affordable, and with the right<br />

equipment, most homeowners can install it<br />

themselves.<br />

Change lighting<br />

Modern lights, including pendants<br />

above your benchtop or kitchen island,<br />

can replace standard recessed downlights.<br />

Another option is energy-efficient LED<br />

lights under bench cabinets.<br />
