DEPUTY MAYOR SAVES<br />

BEST MATE’S LIFE<br />

• By Daniel Alvey<br />

MALCOLM LYALL is imploring<br />

people to skill up on first aid after<br />

he had to use his training to save<br />

his father-in-law.<br />

It was Lyall’s 67th birthday on<br />

Saturday, <strong>May</strong> 11. To celebrate, he<br />

held a dinner with close friends<br />

and family at his Prebbleton<br />

home.<br />

Lyall, who is <strong>Selwyn</strong>’s deputy<br />

mayor, was in the kitchen carving<br />

meat when he heard his 92-yearold<br />

father-in-law Eddie Willett<br />

coughing.<br />

Eddie was choking on his dinner.<br />

Lyall said it wasn’t unusual<br />

for Eddie to have the odd minor<br />

choking incident, but he was always<br />

able to pull himself out of it.<br />

But then Lyall’s wife Nicola<br />

called out to Lyall and said her<br />

dad was not coming right.<br />

“By the time I turned around,<br />

his lips were blue,” Lyall said.<br />

Lyall rushed over to Eddie<br />

and gave him a hard slap on the<br />

back, hoping that would clear the<br />

blockage. It did not work.<br />

IF YOU HAVE ever choked<br />

before, you will know exactly<br />

how Eddie Willett felt at his<br />

You go downhill very<br />

quickly, and you desperately<br />

want what is stuck down<br />

your throat back up again.<br />

When that doesn’t happen,<br />

the potential life-and-death<br />

fight you are in is very, very<br />

frightening.<br />

Eddie choked while eating<br />

the birthday dinner; sonin-law<br />

Malcolm Lyall – the<br />

Wednesday <strong>May</strong> <strong>29</strong> <strong>2024</strong> <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong><br />

• By Daniel Alvey<br />

A COMMUNITY advocacy<br />

group is calling for more safety<br />

measures at intersections.<br />

Lincoln Voice has launched<br />

a petition to get flashing stop<br />

signs installed at dangerous<br />

intersections.<br />

In the five years to 2023,<br />

10 people died and 78 were<br />

seriously injured due to drivers<br />

failing to stop or give way at<br />

intersections in the district,<br />

New Zealand Transport Agency<br />

Waka Kotahi data shows.<br />

Said Lincoln Voice<br />

spokesperson Denise Carrick:<br />

“We propose the installation<br />

of flashing stop signs at all<br />

major junctions. These signs<br />

are proven to draw drivers’<br />

attention more effectively than<br />

standard stop signs, particularly<br />

at night or during adverse<br />

weather conditions.”<br />

In recent years, Lincoln Voice<br />

has focused on fighting the<br />

1710-home Lincoln South subdivision,<br />

which it officially gave<br />

up earlier this year. It has now<br />

turned its focus to other issues<br />

in the community.<br />

In 2016, former <strong>Selwyn</strong> police<br />

sergeant Dan Harker helped<br />

get the flashing warning signs<br />

installed on four intersections,<br />

after being prompted by fatal<br />

crashes he had attended.<br />

Lincoln Voice launched the<br />

petition for road safety week last<br />

Monday. It also teamed up with<br />

the <strong>Selwyn</strong> Community Patrol<br />

and the Lincoln Volunteer Fire<br />

Brigade to make a video.<br />

Said firefighter Andy George<br />

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

Lincoln Voice shifts focus<br />

to road safety issues<br />

LUCKY ESCAPE: In February, a driver pulled out in front of<br />

a bus at the intersection of Robinsons Rd and Birchs Rd,<br />

hitting the bus before flipping into a ditch.<br />

HAVE YOUR SAY Have you<br />

had someone run a stop<br />

sign in front of you? Send<br />

us your story in 200 words<br />

or less to daniel.alvey@<br />

starmedia.kiwi<br />

in the video: “We have seen it all<br />

and while we agree one crash is<br />

too many, a majority of them are<br />

completely avoidable.”<br />

Lincoln Voice also wanted<br />

measures to reduce speed<br />

installed on the approach to<br />

intersections, and better maintenance<br />

around them.<br />

“Implementing speed bumps<br />

or rumble strips before the stop<br />

signs can help reduce vehicle<br />

speed, ensuring drivers approach<br />

these intersections with<br />

caution,” said Carrick.<br />

The petition also advocates<br />

for regular trimming of trees,<br />

hedges and bushes to improve<br />

visibility and safety.<br />

“The council has a fundamental<br />

obligation to ensure the<br />

safety of its residents and road<br />

users. Unfortunately, the current<br />

state of the roads between<br />

Lincoln and Christchurch does<br />

not meet this obligation,” Carrick<br />

said.<br />

The petition has been sent to<br />

the council.<br />

Said a council spokesperson:<br />

“We have received the petition<br />

from Lincoln Voice and would<br />

like some time now to review<br />

this before we respond.”<br />

The petition had 455<br />

signatures as of 3pm Monday.<br />

‘When he choked I clicked straight<br />

“I was saying: ‘Come on<br />

Eddie, come on’.”<br />

– Malcolm Lyall<br />

•From page 1<br />

Lyall asked Eddie to stand, and<br />

as he did, Eddie collapsed.<br />

The two people sitting either<br />

side of Eddie held him up while<br />

Lyall performed lifesaving abdominal<br />

thrusts.<br />

“I applied the Heimlich<br />

manoeuvre multiple times over<br />

a few minutes and managed to<br />

clear the blockage and get some<br />

air flow.”<br />

Lyall said he did not think<br />

when it happened – he just<br />

kicked into gear.<br />

“When dear old dad choked<br />

I clicked straight into first aid<br />

mode. I was saying: ‘Come on<br />

Eddie, come on’.”<br />

After clearing Eddie’s airway,<br />

they carried him to the kitchen<br />

to put him into the recovery<br />

position.<br />

Nicola and another friend had<br />

already called 111, one using a<br />

cellphone and the other on the<br />

landline.<br />

About 30 seconds before<br />

St John and a fire crew from<br />

Wigram arrived, two volunteer<br />

firefighters from Cromwell,<br />

who had been visiting family in<br />

Prebbleton, came through the<br />

back door to help.<br />

“They (paramedics) in and<br />

found he had gone into cardiac<br />

arrest. On my kitchen floor, they<br />

cut his clothes off and did what<br />

they had to do.”<br />

The paramedics cleared everyone<br />

from the kitchen so they<br />

could work on Eddie.<br />

“As I got up to leave, they<br />

were performing CPR on him,”<br />

said Lyall.<br />

He and the others waited<br />

nervously as the minutes ticked by.<br />

“It was all a jumble; I sat down<br />

on the couch and took a few<br />

deep breaths because I was<br />

exhausted.<br />

“I heard one of them say<br />

‘We’ve got a pulse’ and that’s<br />

when a sigh of relief went<br />

BEST MATES: Malcolm Lyall and his father-in-law Eddie<br />

Willett on holiday on Waiheke Island in February 2023.<br />

When Eddie choked at Lyall’s home recently, Lyall used his<br />

first aid training to perform the Heimlich maneouvre.<br />

through me.”<br />

After the paramedics stabilised<br />

Eddie, he was transported to<br />

Christchurch Hospital, with<br />

daughter Nicola accompanying<br />

him in the ambulance.<br />

Lyall and his other guests<br />

stayed at the house, had dessert<br />

and some tea and chatted about<br />

what had unfolded, while Nicola<br />

texted Lyall updates from the<br />

hospital.<br />

Lyall said it took a while for the<br />

adrenaline to subside.<br />

Later that night, he joined<br />

Nicola at the hospital.<br />

Eddie is now recovering<br />

in Burwood Hospital and<br />

remembers little from the<br />

incident.<br />

Drinking? Don’t drive.<br />

It’s time to get our<br />

heads around it.<br />

SELWYN DISTRICT COUNCIL<br />

We’re continuing to get behind the<br />

wheel after drinking, with alcohol<br />

being a major factor contributing<br />

to deaths and serious injuries<br />

crashes in <strong>Selwyn</strong>.<br />

In 2023, alcohol was suspected<br />

in 19% of total <strong>Selwyn</strong> crashes,<br />

which resulted in 2 fatalities and<br />

13 serious injuries.<br />

In response, NZ Police, NZTA and<br />

partners are coming together this<br />

June to collectively target people<br />

in Canterbury who continue to<br />

think it’s ok to drink and then<br />

drive.<br />

People will be reminded of the<br />

consequences through education<br />

and advertising, backed up on the<br />

ground by Police vehicle checks,<br />

enforcement and driver education.<br />

<strong>May</strong>or Sam Broughton says, it’s<br />

good to see our community take<br />

a responsible approach to sober<br />

driving.<br />

“Together, we are shifting beliefs<br />

and behaviours about drink<br />

driving. This is being led by our<br />

young people and a generational<br />

change in attitudes to drunk<br />

drivers’.<br />

“Our <strong>Selwyn</strong> community is well<br />

aware of the expectation to<br />

arrange a safe ride home. This<br />

June, <strong>Selwyn</strong> District Council is<br />

joining forces with our road safety<br />

partners to focus on the risk<br />

drunk drivers place on all other<br />

transport users.”<br />

Drink driving has a significant<br />

impact not only on the driver<br />

themselves, but on passengers<br />

and people using the road around<br />

them.<br />

Around 40% of people injured in<br />

crashes involving alcohol were<br />

not the drink driver behind the<br />

wheel.<br />

into first aid mode’<br />

SKILLS: Lyall has been trained in first aid for 50 years, and encourages others to do a course.<br />

“I remember going over for<br />

dinner then nothing after that<br />

until I was in the ambulance,”<br />

said Eddie.<br />

“I’m just thankful to be here.”<br />

Lyall, who lost his father at 19,<br />

said he treats Eddie like his<br />

dad.<br />

“He’s my best mate,” Lyall said.<br />

Eddie lives by himself just<br />

around the corner from the<br />

Lyalls, after moving north from<br />

Oamaru. Lyall visits him every<br />

day for a cup of tea and sometimes<br />

a whisky.<br />

“I take him to the pub and he<br />

has a couple of pints every Friday<br />

night and if he doesn’t get to go<br />

the pub he gets very sad-faced,”<br />

Lyall joked.<br />

Lyall has had regular first aid<br />

training for 50 years. Now he<br />

is encouraging others to do a<br />

course.<br />

“I’ve spent 50 years as an electrician<br />

and for the first 15 years<br />

PHOTO: GETTY<br />

I had regular first aid training<br />

every six months and in the last<br />

35 years I’ve had regular first aid<br />

training every two years.<br />

“I would like to encourage<br />

people to train and do their first<br />

aid because you never know, it<br />

might be your relative, it might<br />

be somebody sitting across from<br />

you in a cafe,” Lyall said.<br />

“I feel privileged to have been<br />

able to clear his airway and keep<br />

him alive.”<br />

Destructive blaze<br />

caused by ashes<br />

• By Isabella Adams<br />

ASHES FROM an indoor heating appliance<br />

sparked a blaze on a Rolleston property last<br />

week.<br />

Crews from Lincoln and Leeston were<br />

called out to battle the fire in Goulds Rd<br />

about 1.30pm on Thursday.<br />

Five day old embers from the fire place<br />

had been put outside to cool but they blew<br />

into a nearby hedge, causing it to catch fire<br />

which then spread to a double garage.<br />

Lincoln fire brigade chief Richie Bee said<br />

the blaze took about 20 minutes for the<br />

crews to contain.<br />

Bee also said the owner’s quick-thinking<br />

prevented the fire from spreading to the<br />

house on the property.<br />

The garage was destroyed and about 20<br />

metres of hedge damaged.<br />

Big project focus means no rates relief<br />

• By Daniel Alvey<br />

RATES WILL likely remain<br />

the same after more than<br />

1500 submissions, four days<br />

of hearings and two days of<br />

deliberations.<br />

While the final figure is yet<br />

to be calculated, it is unlikely to<br />

vary much from the proposed<br />

15.6 per cent rise the council<br />

consulted the community on.<br />

Councillors spent two days<br />

making changes to its <strong>2024</strong>-34<br />

draft Long Term Plan based on<br />

the submissions.<br />

Feedback ranged from asking<br />

the council to cut costs or to<br />

build new facilities.<br />

During deliberations,<br />

councillors generally followed<br />

the recommendations of council<br />

staff with no major projects cut<br />

from budgets.<br />

It is anticipated double-digit<br />

rises will continue for the next<br />

three years, but rates will go no<br />

higher than 16 per cent after<br />

councillors decided that would<br />

be the maximum.<br />

The maximum rates rise for<br />

the last LTP was set at 6 per<br />

cent.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>, along with all other<br />

councils, is battling cost<br />

increases.<br />

Since the last LTP, interest<br />

rates have gone from 2.5 per<br />

cent to 6 per cent, roads are<br />

27 per cent more expensive to<br />

NO SALE: The council will not buy Broadfield Gardens after it was asked to by residents.<br />

build, sewage systems are 30 per<br />

cent more expensive, and the<br />

cost of bridges is up 38 per cent<br />

Council staff will now make<br />

the changes before the final<br />

version is signed off on July 3.<br />

The Big Decisions<br />

Councillors had three big<br />

decisions to debate.<br />

Big decision one is to build<br />

three new park-and-ride facilities<br />

in the district, two in Rolleston<br />

and one in Lincoln which will<br />

cost $11.6 million for all three<br />

sites. But construction will rely on<br />

co-funding from NZ Transport<br />

Agency Waka Kotahi which will<br />

fund 51 per cent of the cost.<br />

The plan will add $4.67 to rates<br />

in 2025 and $17.73 from 2027<br />

onward.<br />

Big decision two was broken<br />

into two parts – a new community<br />

facility and library for Leeston<br />

and upgrades to Leeston Park.<br />

The council decided it<br />

would retain $19m to build the<br />

community centre and library, but<br />

construction would not start until<br />

more consultation was done.<br />

During the submission process,<br />

council executive director of<br />

community services and facilities<br />

Denise Kidd said there were some<br />

interesting submissions which<br />

needed further investigation.<br />

To do that, the council will<br />

establish a working group with<br />

community members. The impact<br />

on rates will be $33.41 per year.<br />

For Leeston Park, council<br />

decided to continue with<br />

landscape improvements which<br />

will cost $3.4m, adding $117.18 to<br />

rates over 10 years.<br />

The council will also look<br />

at a rifle range building at the<br />

park and explore options for a<br />

multi-use facility for small-bore<br />

shooting and archery, but neither<br />

has any funding committed.<br />

Big decision three will see a<br />

recreation facility with two indoor<br />

courts built in Darfield. It will cost<br />

$11.28m and will be built in 2027<br />

and add $18.18 to rates per year.<br />

New office aims to<br />

meet growing demand<br />

Already well established in Rolleston,<br />

real estate company Harcourts Four<br />

Seasons has opened a brand-new office<br />

in Rolleston’s new village.<br />

Demand for the company’s services<br />

has increased with the continuing<br />

residential growth across the whole<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> area, so they are excited to be<br />

opening larger premises with more<br />

salespeople, branch manager Richard<br />

Tait says.<br />

“Our spacious new office is located<br />

in Tennyson Street next to Te Ara Atea,<br />

the new civic centre. It has two floors,<br />

and with the extra space we are looking<br />

forward to increasing our sales staff<br />

from 12 to 20,” Richard says.<br />

Meanwhile, he says, the original<br />

office at Rolleston Square will have a<br />

greater focus on property management,<br />

a strategic shift that aims to address<br />

the increased demand and enhance the<br />

quality of service for both tenants and<br />

property owners.<br />

“We have been in Rolleston for 15<br />

The Harcourts Rolleston team.<br />

years providing excellent service for<br />

our clients, which will continue with<br />

our current experienced staff and new<br />

people that join us.<br />

“Our staff are all locals, and we hope<br />

to employ more local people, so we<br />

are looking for bright, enthusiastic<br />

individuals that may be looking to<br />

start a new career or want a change<br />

from their present position. We have a<br />

great culture amongst our team, which<br />

everyone enjoys.”<br />

Richard says with ongoing subdivision<br />

development, Rolleston is<br />

continually attracting new families,<br />

with many relocating from the North<br />

Island. Even with that demand, he says,<br />

Christchurch and the <strong>Selwyn</strong> district are<br />

still among the most under-valued areas<br />

of New Zealand.<br />

“The median sale price for a<br />

property with three to four bedrooms<br />

is $771,000 and prices generally range<br />

from $650,000 to $850,000. There’s<br />

everything from first homes to luxury<br />

The bright and<br />

welcoming reception area.<br />

Harcourts Rolleston’s stylish new<br />

office in the new Rolleston village.<br />

properties, so there are opportunities<br />

for everyone.”<br />

While the real estate market across<br />

New Zealand has been slower in recent<br />

months, this trend has not affected<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>, and demand for local Harcourts<br />

properties is described as excellent.<br />

“It’s all go,” says Richard.<br />

“It’s a good time to buy or sell. Buyer<br />

confidence is high and seller confidence<br />

is excellent, keeping our sales team busy.<br />

“Among our new Rolleston residents,<br />

we are also seeing a more ethnically<br />

diverse group of people, which makes<br />

ADVERTORIAL<br />

the community more vibrant.”<br />

So, for anyone looking for a quality<br />

family home at a reasonable price,<br />

among other quality homes and in an<br />

attractive environment with plenty of<br />

amenities, Richard believes Rolleston<br />

has a lot to offer.<br />

“In addition to Te Ara Atea, which<br />

includes the library and other excellent<br />

community facilities, there are several<br />

early childhood centres and primary<br />

schools, and there is a new high school,<br />

with plans for a second one.<br />

“The swimming pool has been<br />

extended and we have baseball and<br />

softball fields. Also, a lot of new<br />

restaurants, fast-food outlets and shops<br />

have opened - in fact there are around<br />

15 to 20 new businesses close to our<br />

new office.”<br />

Harcourts Four Seasons’ new office<br />

is now open and they look forward<br />

to bringing sound results for clients<br />

buying or selling properties, not just<br />

in Rolleston, but right across the<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> District. Give them a call on<br />

(03) 347 4711.

Sheffield Pool<br />

The Sheffield Pool has been<br />

thrown a lifeline after being up<br />

for demolition due to its age and<br />

condition – the pool tub is 70<br />

years old and is leaking.<br />

While 61.2 per cent of<br />

submissions supported the<br />

closure, submissions from the<br />

Sheffield area wanted the pool to<br />

remain, but it will be handed over<br />

to the community to be run and<br />

funded by a community-run legal<br />

entity.<br />

The council will keep the pool<br />

open for this summer while the<br />

group is established. But there<br />

is still a clock on the pool, if no<br />

agreement is decided by June<br />

30 next year, the pool will be<br />

demolished.<br />

Broadfield Gardens<br />

Despite interest from the<br />

community, the council will not<br />

buy Broadfield Gardens.<br />

The highly rated garden on<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Rd is currently on the<br />

market. Despite 13 submitters<br />

asking the council to buy the<br />

gardens and keep them publicly<br />

owned, council staff said it would<br />

be too costly.<br />

It is understood the gardens<br />

have a sale price of about $2m,<br />

with the council estimating it<br />

would cost about $200,000 per<br />

year to run.<br />

Staff recommended that those<br />

who want the gardens retained<br />

form a trust to buy the site and<br />

retain community ownership.<br />

Strategic partnerships<br />

Some community groups have<br />

received boosts in their funding<br />

as part of the council’s strategic<br />

partnerships.<br />

Over the next three years, the<br />

following groups will receive<br />

funds from the council: <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

Sports Trust ($140,000), Lincoln<br />

EnviroTown Trust ($150,000),<br />

Te Ara Kākāriki Greenway<br />

Canterbury Trust ($130,000),<br />

24/7 Youth ($100,000), Waihora<br />

Ellesmere Trust ($60,000),<br />

Summit Road Trust ($60,000).<br />

Some submitters asked the<br />

council to install water fountains<br />

in townships which would filter<br />

out chlorine.<br />

Council staff estimated each<br />

installation to cost $20,000 to<br />

build and $20,000 each year to<br />

maintain. This was deemed not<br />

cost-effective.<br />

Council office extension<br />

The council will spend $3.7m over<br />

the next two years to upgrade<br />

its Rolleston office. The upgrade<br />

will include an extension to<br />

accommodate more staff, EV<br />

charging for council vehicles, and<br />

cultural improvements to the<br />

council chambers and entrance<br />

The council will develop an arts<br />

VINZ worker killed<br />

in motorcycle crash<br />

TRIBUTES HAVE been paid to<br />

a motorcyclist killed in a crash<br />

in Rolleston.<br />

Shafie Bin Sulaiman, 52, died<br />

after the crash on Jones Rd at<br />

He was pronounced dead<br />

at the scene shortly after<br />

emergency services arrived.<br />

There were no other vehicles<br />

involved. Police inquiries into<br />

Shafie worked at VINZ in<br />

Rolleston for six years after<br />

immigrating to New Zealand,<br />

Readers blame council<br />

for event parking woes<br />

Readers respond to<br />

the parking issues<br />

near Foster Park. In<br />

the <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong>, the<br />

Rolleston Rugby Club<br />

called for leniency over<br />

parking restrictions<br />

on busy periods like<br />

Saturday mornings<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> District Council states<br />

there is also adjacent parking at<br />

the pool for the multiplicity of<br />

sports events happening at the<br />

same time on said lucrative ‘fine<br />

day’ Saturday.<br />

No, there isn’t. I was at the pool<br />

on Saturday. The 20-metre pool<br />

was closed to swimmers bar two<br />

lanes for all the kids’ coaching.<br />

Remember that complex has<br />

also been expanded substantially<br />

since the new pool – about 50 per<br />

cent – (with) no extra parking<br />

provided, so to say there’s pool<br />

complex parking available for<br />

football, netball, rugby etc but<br />

still available for families at the<br />

playground is rubbish.<br />

Also, how has the council<br />

measured the ‘largely positive’<br />

feedback? Easy throwaway<br />

local library, to help celebrate New<br />

Zealand Music Month.<br />

The humble ukulele is the toddler<br />

of stringed instruments, with<br />

the players keen to show off its<br />

distinctive sound for the town’s<br />

music lovers.<br />

The Darfield group was formed<br />

in 2018, quickly growing to about<br />

20 members.<br />

Group leader Adele Langlands<br />

has been teaching music for more<br />

than 25 years.<br />

“We talked about having a<br />

group, making it more community<br />

style rather than just<br />

one-on-one tuition. So we decided<br />

we’ll give ukulele a go, and (it was)<br />

amazing.”<br />

She said it was all about people<br />

just having fun.<br />

“There’s all sorts of variety of<br />

backgrounds. Some of them have<br />

played classical music, the piano,<br />

cellist or whatever, and others<br />

have never touched an instrument<br />

before. But it’s the type of instrument<br />

you can learn quite quickly<br />

and join in. Even if you can’t play<br />

it perfectly it doesn’t matter.”<br />

One player reckons the ukulele<br />

is one of the easiest instruments<br />

to learn.<br />

“I’ve tried the guitar, but I just<br />

can’t get the six strings. Four<br />

strings is so much easier.”<br />

The community-friendly<br />

instrument is gaining in<br />

popularity, with more and more<br />

groups popping up.<br />

The Dugs say they’re planning<br />

to have more public outings to<br />

help inspire the next generation of<br />

‘ukulelists’.<br />

burnham country montessori – Where fun and learning go hand in hand!<br />

At Burnham Montessori we have real grass, lots of room to play and explore, and a dedicated classroom for our 4-5 yr old children.<br />

To understand what is so special about what we offer, you may be interested to know a little about Maria Montessori. She graduated in 1896 as the first woman doctor<br />

in Italy and made scientific observations of children’s almost effortless ability to absorb knowledge from their surroundings, as well as their tireless interest in manipulating<br />

materials. Every method and principle that comprises the worldwide Montessori movement today is based on what Maria observed children doing “naturally,” by<br />

themselves.<br />

So what do we do? We provide a unique country and farm environment for children to explore and discover as they start to develop a sense of wonder and make<br />

sense of the world around them. Our qualified staff facilitate these experiences to support each child in their individual learning journey.<br />

Our aim is to foster each child’s potential, while assisting children to better understand, express and regulate their emotions. We support and promote social and<br />

emotional competence, in a delightful environment that assists each child’s learning and engagement, encouraging reflection, inquiry and problem solving, with the<br />

aim of cultivating the child’s natural love of learning and their ongoing inquisitiveness.<br />

Our country setting<br />

We are on a large slice of rural land, 5km outside Rolleston and a short distance from Lincoln and the Burnham Military Camp. The large, open and well-resourced<br />

playgrounds have native plantings, vegetable gardens, and large decked areas for the children and their families/whānau to enjoy. It is one of the largest natural,<br />

aesthetically pleasing outdoor playgrounds in <strong>Selwyn</strong>, with real grass!<br />

Here, children interact with and learn to respect nature. They learn how to care for the environment through gardening and a<br />

range of outdoor experiences.<br />

Well-resourced classrooms<br />

We emphasise all aspects of the Montessori programme, including practical life skills, sensorial development, language and<br />

reading, mathematical understanding (progressing from the concrete to the abstract), music , movement and cultural activities.<br />

Children are not required to learn by heart at first, but utilise all their senses to help them with their pre reading and writing skills.<br />

The classrooms in which these explorations take place are bright, fun and well-resourced.<br />

Connection with whānau<br />

It’s crucial for us to link family with everything that is happening with children. From the first settling-in visit, your child is part of<br />

the Burnham Montessori family, and staff will talk to you about your child’s routines, needs and interests. Each classroom has a<br />

designated head teacher and staffing team, so<br />

you always have a direct line of contact.<br />

Sustainability<br />

We are committed to teaching children about<br />

how to care and respect for our environment,<br />

and cover all aspects of classroom, facilities and<br />

consumables management and nature – it helps<br />

having a food scraps-munching pig on site too!<br />

Please visit!<br />

You have to see this for yourselves. Please feel<br />

free to contact us anytime and arrange a time to<br />

come in for a visit.<br />

WAIHORA REMAIN on top<br />

of pool B in the Luisetti Seeds<br />

combined country competition<br />

after a hard-fought 24-10 home win<br />

over Darfield to celebrate their club<br />

day on Saturday.<br />

The victory locked up a home<br />

quarterfinal spot for Waihora with<br />

one round of the competition left<br />

to play while Darfield dropped to<br />

fifth in the standings, outside the<br />

quarterfinals.<br />

In pool A, Prebbleton’s 59-7<br />

demolition of strugglers Hornby<br />

maintained their place in the<br />

quarterfinals but remain outside the<br />

spots for home advantage due to inferior<br />

points difference to Southern.<br />

Their clash on Saturday at<br />

Prebbleton Domain in the last<br />

round of the competition will<br />

determine the final quarterfinal<br />

spots.<br />

Dramatic change needed to fix<br />

unsustainable rugby landscape<br />

Bevan Sisson<br />

Rugby matters<br />

WHEN WILL New Zealand<br />

Rugby and the provincial unions<br />

realise the game isn’t the shining<br />

golden cloak of NZ sport. The<br />

landscape isn’t changing – it’s<br />

changed, got dressed and left the<br />

sheds.<br />

The Players’ Association<br />

has laid down an ultimatum<br />

to change the governance or<br />

they will force an even greater<br />

disruption.<br />

Its chief Rob Nichol has<br />

put the blame squarely at the<br />

provincial unions for stopping<br />

the introduction of a new model<br />

as the unions struggle to keep<br />

control.<br />

The NPC and the community<br />

game need to have a completely<br />

separate amateur body. This<br />

new body would realise it is<br />

unsustainable to fly around the<br />

country and stay in hotels and<br />

pay players, in what should be<br />

an amateur competition.<br />

The salary cap for the NPC is<br />

$1.1 million with some unions<br />

reporting spending up to $1.4m<br />

– money that doesn’t need to be<br />

spent. That excludes coaches and<br />

support staff.<br />

The crowds don’t warrant it<br />

and the viewing audiences don’t<br />

justify it.<br />

The competition format needs<br />

to change.<br />

One option could be a<br />

conference system with North<br />

and South Island conferences,<br />

with the winner of each<br />

conference playing in a final.<br />

It should have a promotionrelegation<br />

component for<br />

something to aspire to. This<br />

could also open up the door for<br />

an extra Heartland team for the<br />

South Island to be introduced,<br />

such as Canterbury Country.<br />

There will be many differing<br />

ideas on how a new format<br />

should look:<br />

• Removing payments to<br />

players.<br />

• No day training but after<br />

work sessions, with player and<br />

team reviews done online.<br />

• They bus to and from games<br />

where they can, saving money<br />

on expensive flights. Look at<br />

the situation South Canterbury<br />

ended up with, missing out on<br />

a shield challenge due to the<br />

costs of flights, stopping players<br />

having a shot at the shield.<br />

• Games played at parks with<br />

no television requirements,<br />

allowing them to be played at<br />

local domains for everyone to<br />

watch local players they identify<br />

with. The success of Canterbury<br />

v Auckland last year at Rangiora<br />

Showgrounds proved it can be<br />

done.<br />

• The Super Rugby franchises<br />

will have scouts looking at<br />

these games and there is still<br />

an opportunity for someone<br />

that has slipped through to get<br />

picked up by a franchise.<br />

Now to the professional game.<br />

Let’s be honest, most of the top<br />

players have played minimal or<br />

any club rugby or even NPC.<br />

Look at the case of young<br />

Jamie Hannah, ex Christchurch<br />

Boy’s High. He is a great young<br />

player with real ability. Straight<br />

SPLIT: New Zealand Rugby Players’ Association chief Rob Nichol has threatened to form a<br />

new body, which will be established to govern the professional game if NZ Rugby doesn’t<br />

vote on governance reforms by the end of the month.<br />

out of high school and into the<br />

Crusaders Academy via Lincoln<br />

University.<br />

His path has been Crusaders<br />

U20s, NZ U20s and then into<br />

the Crusaders. No NPC pathway<br />

for that young fella. Aaron<br />

Webb, the Crusaders Academy<br />

and talent ID manager,<br />

identified his class early,<br />

enabling him to be fast-tracked.<br />

It does raise questions though.<br />

What happens to the<br />

professional players between<br />

Super Rugby seasons? Could<br />

the Crusaders do a longer offseason<br />

tour to generate income,<br />

enabling them to trial fringe<br />

players and keeping those not<br />

involved in the ABs, NZ XV<br />

and U20s in meaningful rugby<br />

before the next Super season,<br />

while also creating much needed<br />

income?<br />

With any change there will<br />

be issues, like where does the<br />

Ranfurly Shield fit in. Does<br />

it become an FA Cup style<br />

competition? Is a new format<br />

going to be manageable? Where<br />

does the women’s professional<br />

game sit? There are more<br />

questions than answers and<br />

many things that need to be<br />

solved, but change needs to<br />

happen and staying with the<br />

status quo is not the answer.<br />

FAST TRACK: Young Crusader Jamie Hannah was<br />

recruited to the Crusaders Academy straight out of<br />

high school and didn’t need to follow the pathway to<br />

professional rugby via the NPC competition.<br />

A win to savour in a season of struggles<br />

SOLID: Crusaders lock and Lincoln High School product<br />

Antonio Shalfoon put in a big performance in Saturday<br />

night’s victory over the Blues.<br />

PHOTO: GETTY<br />

THE CRUSADERS have<br />

stumbled and bumbled through<br />

the season. With one highlight<br />

being the win over the Chiefs<br />

in round six and a low light in<br />

round 9 being well beaten by the<br />

Force.<br />

They can now add another<br />

highlight to a struggling season<br />

with the win over the Blues.<br />

Both sides had motivation for<br />

the game – the Blues cement<br />

themselves at the top, and the<br />

Crusaders need to get themselves<br />

away from the bottom.<br />

The Crusaders showed real<br />

grit with a plan to take it to the<br />

Blues at scrum time and in the<br />

tight with the backs starting to<br />

show some real direction in an<br />

up tempo game plan.<br />

What a great story seeing Antonio<br />

Shalfoon previously from<br />

Lincoln High School. A few<br />

weeks ago his game time was<br />

running out for Springston in<br />

the combined country competition.<br />

He played well and showed<br />

the need for a big tight head lock<br />

in that Crusaders pack.<br />

Does Saturday night’s win<br />

smooth over the lumps of the<br />

season? Definitely not and a<br />

robust review will be needed<br />

from their training (why do<br />

they have so many non-contact<br />

soft tissue injuries?) to the make<br />

up of the coaching group and<br />

management.<br />

But let’s enjoy the moment<br />

and that can be sorted later on.<br />

Rob Penney may have woken up<br />

on Sunday with a headache, but<br />

hopefully because he has had a<br />

couple of celebratory beers and<br />

not over the issues of the past<br />

week.<br />

The Crusaders still require a<br />

lot of results to fall their way to<br />

make the eight so they will need<br />

to fight like they are the third<br />

monkey on the ramp to Noah’s<br />

Ark, and brother it’s starting to<br />

rain.

GARDENING 25<br />

How to cultivate<br />

the best beans<br />

THERE ARE three things in life<br />

you can count on: Death, taxes,<br />

and broad beans. Here’s how<br />

to cultivate the great gift of the<br />

garden.<br />

Vegetables<br />

Traditionally, broad beans are<br />

sown from March until mid-<br />

<strong>May</strong>, to stand through the winter<br />

and bear crops in early summer.<br />

Renowned for their hardiness,<br />

broad beans are a favourite<br />

vegetable with many southern<br />

gardeners, as not only do seeds<br />

germinate in cold ground but the<br />

plants prefer heavier soils.<br />

The soil for broad beans should<br />

be well drained and enriched<br />

with plenty of compost. Phosphates,<br />

supplied by adding bone<br />

dust or superphosphate, will<br />

encourage healthy growth. Applying<br />

lime at the rate of 50g per<br />

square metre some time before<br />

sowing sweetens sour, acid soils.<br />

Tall broad bean plants need<br />

to be supported, and they can<br />

provide excellent windbreaks for<br />

tender spring crops. Site the rows<br />

where they will be useful shelter<br />

for the likes of lettuce, outdoor<br />

tomatoes and French beans.<br />

Sow broad beans in double<br />

rows, about 20cm apart, with the<br />

seeds placed about 10cm apart<br />

and 5cm deep. Sow a few extra<br />

seeds at the end of rows to transplant<br />

into any gaps.<br />

If you are growing redflowered<br />

or other heritage broad<br />

beans and want to save seeds, be<br />

aware they will cross-pollinate<br />

with other broad beans within<br />

bee-flying distance and may not<br />

breed true.<br />

Flowers<br />

Gladioli should be lifted this<br />

month, even if the tops still look<br />

a bit green. Lift them and trim<br />

the tops, but do not cut them<br />

off completely. Put the corms<br />

in paper – not plastic – bags on<br />

which the colour or variety is<br />

written and hang in a cool, dry<br />

place to ripen. When the foliage<br />

is completely dry, it can be<br />

removed and the gladioli stored<br />

in boxes or paper bags, but that<br />

is not essential.<br />

Hyacinths can still be planted,<br />

but do not delay if you want<br />

spring blooms. For good spikes<br />

of flowers, the bulbs should be<br />

in rich soil with some bone dust<br />

added to promote bulb growth.<br />

Snowdrops and crocuses can<br />

be planted for a spring display,<br />

too.<br />

Tulips give good results when<br />

planted later in autumn than<br />

other bulbs. They like a rich soil,<br />

with fine river sand under each<br />

bulb to improve drainage.<br />

Hardy annuals, biennials and<br />

perennials can still be planted for<br />

late spring and summer displays<br />

but, as with bulb planting, it is<br />

important to get on with it.<br />

Sweet peas may still be sown<br />

in pots or boxes under shelter.<br />

If this cannot be provided, wait<br />

until spring and place where the<br />

plants will flower.<br />

For those serious about their<br />

sweet peas, trenches for them<br />

can be prepared now. Make them<br />

1m wide and two spades deep.<br />

Mix garden compost, autumn<br />

leaves, seaweed, stable manure or<br />

other organic material into the<br />

subsoil. Replace topsoil, enriched<br />

with bone meal or superphosphate<br />

and crushed limestone<br />

(50g per m each).<br />

Annuals sown earlier for<br />

spring flowering can be thinned<br />

as soon as they can be handled,<br />

leaving 5cm divisions. Further<br />

thinning is necessary as the<br />

plants become larger until they<br />

are finally 20cm or more apart.<br />

Chrysanthemums which have<br />

finished flowering should be<br />

cut down to within 15cm of the<br />

ground to encourage growth<br />

from the basal shoots.<br />

Dahlias left in the ground from<br />

year to year usually produce the<br />

earliest blooms, but unless your<br />

garden is very sheltered this is<br />

not recommended, because hard<br />

frosts can kill the tubers, turning<br />

them to a slimy mess.<br />

Lift them carefully and store<br />

in damp sawdust for the winter<br />

under shelter, ideally in temperatures<br />

between 2 and 5 degrees<br />

Celsius.<br />

If you must leave dahlia tubers<br />

in the ground, they can be protected<br />

from frosts by piling extra<br />

soil over them or covering the<br />

ground with bracken or scrub.<br />

Make a note on the calendar to<br />

lift them in early October and<br />

replant single pieces with a bud<br />

attached.<br />

Fruit<br />

Fruit trees will start appearing<br />

in nurseries soon, and many garden<br />

centres supply a list of what<br />

they will be stocking. If you<br />

want particular varieties, it pays<br />

to get in early.<br />

That applies particularly to<br />

double and triple-grafted apples,<br />

pears, plums and apricots. Check<br />

with fruit trees need pollinators<br />

and choose accordingly.<br />

Stylish, smooth EV ticks all the right boxes<br />

THE ID.4 IS A milestone on<br />

the road to full electrification<br />

for German automotive giant<br />

Volkswagen, clocking in as the<br />

company’s first vehicle built on a<br />

dedicated EV platform.<br />

Volkswagen put a tentative toe<br />

into the pure EV pool three years<br />

ago with an all-electric version of<br />

their iconic Golf hatch.<br />

However, it failed to spark a<br />

lot of interest and was hardly<br />

ground-breaking, sharing<br />

the same platform as internal<br />

combustion engine Golf variants.<br />

It was also held back by a<br />

mediocre real world EV range of<br />

around 200km, before needing<br />

to be tethered to an electric fast<br />

charger to get amped up again.<br />

The first version of the larger<br />

ID.4 mid-sized SUV debuted in<br />

Europe in 2021, with the iteration<br />

sold here launched in 2022.<br />

Covid and supply issues saw it<br />

make a belated arrival in this<br />

part of the world towards the end<br />

of 2023.<br />

There’s plenty going for the<br />

ID.4 in terms of space, technology,<br />

performance, and versatility.<br />

Motoring with Bob Nettleton<br />

For our market, it’s a two<br />

model show comprising the<br />

generously appointed PRO for<br />

$74,990 that’s under scrutiny<br />

in this road test, or the more<br />

lavishly appointed $79,990 PRO+.<br />

Both go the EV distance better<br />

than most, with a real world<br />

electric ranges of 519km.<br />

The ID.4 has the standard<br />

SUV body shape, with its<br />

sibling the ID.5 opting for<br />

a more sophisticated coupe<br />

like appearance. Personally, I<br />

preferred the clean-cut and less<br />

intricate styling of the ID.4.<br />

Getting behind the wheel of<br />

the ID.4 is a tad surreal with the<br />

vehicle sensing your presence<br />

and automatically starting when<br />

you sit in the driver’s seat using<br />

the smart key.<br />

The test car had heaps of heft<br />

from a beefy 77kWh battery<br />

and an electric motor producing<br />

150 kW of power and 310 Nm<br />

of torque. This is more than<br />

enough and with some to spare,<br />

to shift this decent sized SUV<br />

with genuine zip, cocooning<br />

you in silence, whether it’s a laid<br />

back around town excursion, or a<br />

lively open road dash.<br />

Throttle response is<br />

exhilarating and addictive.<br />

Standing start acceleration<br />

provided by the electrified system<br />

makes most conventional engines<br />

look like slouches.<br />

A single speed automatic is<br />

super efficient and its computer<br />

brain’s task of choosing what gear<br />

to select is about as easy as it gets.<br />

The ID.4’s exceptional brake<br />

energy recovery system is among<br />

the best in the EV class.<br />

An electric motor acts as<br />

a generator to make braking<br />

more efficient. Energy released<br />

during braking is converted<br />

into electricity and fed into the<br />

battery.<br />

Using the steering wheel<br />

paddles, you can adjust the<br />

amount of energy recuperation,<br />

and soak up a truly empowering<br />

experience.<br />

A roomy and welcoming cabin<br />

has an abundance of usable<br />

passenger and cargo space.<br />

Instruments and controls<br />

are designed with meticulous<br />

Germanic attention to detail, and<br />

are easy to read and use.<br />

There’s a 12-inch central touch<br />

display, multifunction steering<br />

wheel, push button start, heated<br />

front seats and steering wheel,<br />

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

8; 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 />

with the latter adjustable for<br />

height and reach.<br />

A 30-colour ambient light<br />

palate lets you have a lot of fun<br />

around choosing the mood of the<br />

cabin, from bright and bouncy to<br />

laid back and chilled.<br />

Safety is paramount, and the<br />

ID.4 delivers in emphatic fashion<br />

with a coveted 5-Star ANCAP<br />

safety rating. This was earned<br />

through leading-edge safety<br />

tech such as front assist with<br />

predictive pedestrian and cyclist<br />

protection. side assist with rear<br />

traffic alert warns the driver of<br />

collisions with other vehicles,<br />

cyclists, pedestrians and static<br />

obstacles. New assistance systems<br />

are also at play to increase safety.<br />

For example when a door is<br />

opened, exit warning alerts you<br />

if another vehicle or a cyclist is<br />

approaching from behind. It does<br />

this with sound, and visually via<br />

a light signal on the inside of the<br />

exterior mirror housing<br />

All the excellent ride and road<br />

holding traits associated with<br />

Volkswagen are embodied in the<br />

ID.4.<br />

The suspension sees<br />

Macpherson struts fitted at the<br />

front and a multi link set-up<br />

at the rear. Both work their<br />

magic to deliver an immensely<br />

satisfying drive, that’s right out of<br />

the top drawer.<br />

Rear-wheel drive offers<br />

effective traction over most<br />

road surfaces from the good,<br />

the bad, and the down right<br />

hideous. It confidently moves<br />

over these with the electric drive<br />

system expertly transmitted<br />

power across a raft of different<br />

driving situations. Because of the<br />

intelligent electric motor design,<br />

maximum torque is available in<br />

almost an instant.<br />

The high-voltage battery fits<br />

snuggly into the floor of the<br />

ID.4 between the axles, with its<br />

low centre of gravity giving the<br />

vehicle exceptional agility and<br />

balance during brisk cornering.<br />

With its solid and compact<br />

European feel, the test ID.4, had<br />

a genuine and desirable point of<br />

difference over many of its peers.<br />

This is decidedly advantageous<br />

in one of the fastest growing and<br />

most competitive segments of<br />

our new car market.<br />

The test vehicle was subjected<br />

to an unrelenting assortment of<br />

bruising bumps and potholes,<br />

on a couple of lengthy drives on<br />

rural roads, that didn’t show a<br />

shred of country hospitality. I<br />

emerged from this experience<br />

with a deeper respect of the ride<br />

comfort and handling talents of<br />

this outstanding EV.<br />

Terrific T-bucket<br />

You’ve likely seen the eye-catching<br />

1923 Model T hot-rodded out as a<br />

T-bucket with the number plate “Katys<br />

1” over the last 3–4 years, joining local<br />

Christmas parades, including Leeston<br />

and Lincoln. Apart from owners Katy<br />

and Trev, one of its regular passengers—<br />

Koopa the dog—with his leather jacket,<br />

flying helmet, and goggles also catches<br />

everyone’s attention!<br />

In 1978, starting with the body,<br />

windscreen, and various pieces, Trev,<br />

with his boilermaker/welding experience,<br />

drew up the chassis on butcher paper<br />

on the lounge room floor. Constructed<br />

from tube steel, only two T-buckets in<br />

New Zealand are known to have this<br />

type of chassis rather than box steel. This<br />

project was a labour of love, taking many<br />

months to hand tool the chassis.<br />

The key was first turned in 1980,<br />

and the day was memorable as the<br />

house nearly burned down due to<br />

an unattended oven pot roast. In the<br />

excitement of the occasion and hosting<br />

drag racing legend Ron Colett, who built<br />

the engine, the pot roast was forgotten,<br />

and the pan caught fire.<br />

Over the years, Trev and Katy used it as<br />

a drag racing car with slicks, a roll cage,<br />

and differential gearing. Katy raced for<br />

5–6 years at Ruapuna in the Street Class<br />

and said she enjoyed “giving the young<br />

boy racers a bit of a fright” off the start.<br />

The car was tuned to get off the line fast,<br />

and Katy could hold her own, achieving<br />

a 12.2-second quarter mile. With family<br />

involvement in drag racing, their son<br />

Morgan did a 10.04-second quarter<br />

mile. In the late 1990s, the T-bucket<br />

had a complete motor rebuild and was<br />

returned to the road as a hot rod. It now<br />

features a Chev 305 engine, 3-speed auto,<br />

9” diff, and Hoosier Quick Time tyres on<br />

the back.<br />

Katy’s T-bucket stands out with its<br />

unique features. It boasts a vertical fuel<br />

tank, a creation of Trev’s, positioned<br />

behind the seat, allowing a spacious boot<br />

to accommodate all the essentials. Katy<br />

proudly states, “I can fit a full week’s<br />

groceries in that car.” This is not just a<br />

show vehicle; it serves as a daily driver.<br />

It also comes equipped with a full hood<br />

and curtains, stowed under the seats and<br />

ready to be pulled out when needed.<br />

The T-bucket has become a familiar<br />

sight at most Canterbury events, often<br />

seen cruising around the region and<br />

even used for daily commutes. Katy<br />

asserts, “It’s not some precious little<br />

vehicle hidden in a garage, and every<br />

stone chip on it has been earned.” Last<br />

year, it made a memorable appearance at<br />

the Whangamata Beach Hop. It’s been a<br />

car that the whole family has cherished,<br />

with the four children using it on special<br />

occasions, including taking their friends<br />

for a ride, picking up the grandkids from<br />

school, and even serving as a wedding<br />

car.<br />

It’s great to know that a car from 1923<br />

is still an everyday runabout, grabbing<br />

attention and causing a stir<br />

Advanced Upholstery<br />

Advanced Upholstery is owned and<br />

operated by husband and wife team, Brian<br />

and Sue Stockdale.<br />

Brian has 30+ years of experience as an<br />

Auto & Marine Upholsterer. Sue manages<br />

the office and showroom and will walk<br />

you through the process of transforming<br />

your ideas into reality. Once your job is<br />

booked in, she will order your materials<br />

ready for Brian to complete your job on<br />

schedule.<br />

Sue and Brian have noticed an increase<br />

in motorhomes and caravans in the last<br />

few years with owners wanting to put<br />

their own style into their home away from<br />

home. Whether it’s a small retro caravan,<br />

fifth-wheeler, or anything in between,<br />

Brian has the expertise to transform them<br />

into a comfortable and stylish living space.<br />

Whether you’re making a sitting area<br />

from scratch or recovering existing<br />

squabs, Advanced Upholstery has a great<br />

range of colours and patterned fabrics to<br />

choose from in their showroom. These<br />

include samples from Charles Parson and<br />

Warwick fabrics that are made to last. If<br />

you’re looking for a leather look, they<br />

have a range of leather and leatherette,<br />

as well as vinyl samples. They use a local<br />

Christchurch-based foam factory to meet<br />

your specific needs.<br />

If you also need help with seating<br />

frames, Brian can discuss different<br />

layouts and designs to customise your<br />

requirements.<br />

Complete your RV with a Cvana<br />

Awning. Advanced Upholstery has been<br />

the trusted agent for the South Island for<br />

over 10 years and has installed them on<br />

caravans, motorhomes, buses, and horse<br />

floats. Brian says he won’t sell or install<br />

any other brand as they are the strongest<br />

awning in New Zealand.<br />

Cvana Awnings are quick and easy to<br />

use - just pull out for instant shade with<br />

no outside struts to bang your head on.<br />

Enclosers or walls have replaced the older<br />

style awning making them incredibly fast<br />

to put up.<br />

At Advanced Upholstery, all enclosures<br />

are custom-built to your specifications.<br />

You can choose where you’d like to<br />

place your 3-way windows and doors<br />

and select from a wide range of plain<br />

or patterned canvas in their showroom.<br />

Plus, they stock a range of Cvana parts,<br />

ensuring that any repairs can be done<br />

quickly and easily.<br />

Advanced Upholstery can also<br />

spruce up your RV by recovering<br />

headboards, line walls, lay carpet,<br />

and recover captain chairs seats. They<br />

are open late night Thursdays until<br />

6:30pm, Saturdays 8:30am – 12pm, and<br />

Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays<br />

from 8:00am – 4:30pm at 3967 West<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 />

Sizing up a house design<br />

Those looking to build a new<br />

home are likely to tour show homes,<br />

checking features, noting the number<br />

of rooms and spaciousness of each,<br />

and making mental comparisons<br />

with their existing living quarters<br />

and what they perceive they will need<br />

in their home.<br />

There is no one ideal house size.<br />

Determining square metre size<br />

depends on one’s stage in the family<br />

life cycle and lifestyle. Young couples,<br />

older people downsizing and those<br />

living on their own may want smaller<br />

homes whereas families often seek<br />

space.<br />

Visiting show homes is a good way<br />

to get a spatial impression.<br />

Many building companies have<br />

more than one show home. This<br />

allows them to demonstrate the<br />

range of work they do, the quality of<br />

their workmanship, and to feature<br />

house designs they have on their<br />

books. These homes also provide<br />

examples of the features that can be<br />

incorporated into a new home.<br />

Show homes vary in size. Some are<br />

less than 200 square metres, others<br />

may be around 210m², 220m² or<br />

closer to 240m². A smaller home<br />

may not always feel less spacious.<br />

It depends on design and layout.<br />

A larger home may offer the<br />

opportunity for extra living area in<br />

a separate lounge, a laundry room<br />

inside the house rather than in the<br />

garage, wider entry and hallways, and<br />

larger rooms overall. Extra features<br />

such as walk-in pantries, ensuites and<br />

walk-in robes in the main bedroom,<br />

and additional storage cupboards can<br />

also be accommodated as the square<br />

metres increase.<br />

Building smaller will not<br />

necessarily equate to a significantly<br />

cheaper price. While building<br />

companies work on a square metre<br />

build figure, certain costs are still<br />

incurred such as for the drain laying,<br />

plumbing, kitchen, bathroom, toilet,<br />

and garage with the latter less costly<br />

to build. Adding extra bathrooms<br />

and the like will add more to the final<br />

price however, if the square metres<br />

are taken up in living and bedroom<br />

space or a wider hallway then the<br />

cost is proportionately less. Higher<br />

specified features will certainly<br />

increase the cost of the build.<br />

Making comparisons in both size<br />

and features when viewing show<br />

homes and house designs will help<br />

you determine the size of home to<br />

build. Weigh your needs and wants<br />

against any budgetary constraints,<br />

ensuring you have all the facts and<br />

a clear idea of costs before making<br />

your final decision.<br />

Selling your home?<br />

Potential buyers are likely to be<br />

living in your neighbourhood, it’s<br />

an area that they already love<br />

and are actively seeking to stay<br />

in. That’s why it makes sense to<br />

advertise your property in the<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Property Guide.<br />

Double Glazing makes<br />

a home warmer<br />

Heat is retained in winter and kept out in<br />

summer while condensation and noise from<br />

outside are reduced.<br />

Modern double glazed windows and<br />

doors are more effective than their earlier<br />

counterparts and far superior to single<br />

glazing which allows heat to escape<br />

through the glass even when there are<br />

thermal curtains.<br />

Double glazing works in much the same<br />

way as a thermos flask where the silver<br />

surface on the inner glass lining reflects<br />

back the temperature of its contents.<br />

Heat is retained in winter and kept out in<br />

summer while condensation and noise<br />

from outside are reduced.<br />

Overseas, triple glazing is very popular<br />

while double glazing is more common in<br />

New Zealand. Both have a gap between<br />

the layers of glass resulting in less heat<br />

transference. The wider the gap, the more<br />

warmth is retained in the home with less<br />

chance of condensation.<br />

The technology around double and<br />

triple glazing has advanced significantly<br />

over the years leading to greater efficiency<br />

though not all products are equal with the<br />

insulation ratings varying between the<br />

various market options.<br />

Ratings depend on the components<br />

used and how the windows and doors<br />

are constructed. Factors are the type and<br />

emissivity of the glass and width between<br />

the panes. Products with an Energy Star<br />

have better thermal performance.<br />

Low-emissivity (low-e) glass, limits the<br />

amount of ultra violet and infrared light<br />

transmitted through the glass; the lower<br />

the level, the more reflective the glass<br />

reducing heat loss by twenty to thirty<br />

percent. The result is a warmer home in<br />

winter while the sun is reflected back<br />

keeping the heat out and the home cooler<br />

in summer.<br />

The minimum air space between each<br />

pane of glass in a double glazed window is<br />

usually ten to sixteen millimetres. Twelve<br />

millimetres is recommended for warmer<br />

parts of New Zealand while the optimum<br />

for Canterbury is from fifteen to seventeen<br />

millimetres.<br />

A step up is argon gas filled windows;<br />

an economic and natural gas. Argon gas<br />

is heavier than air so affords three to<br />

nine percent greater insulation than air<br />

filled double glazing and improved sound<br />

proofing. The window or door unit is<br />

completely sealed so perfectly safe and the<br />

gas used for residential windows is nontoxic.<br />

It is also used in retrofitted windows<br />

to increase energy efficiency especially<br />

where the gap between the glass panes<br />

needs to be less than usual to fit into an<br />

existing timber window frame.<br />

Double glazing is now standard in<br />

new homes with additional options like<br />

argon gas and low-e glass filled windows<br />

becoming increasingly popular due to the<br />

increased benefits they offer, especially as<br />

the additional funds invested are said to<br />

be quickly recouped by the energy savings<br />

made.<br />

If building or renovating, it is worth<br />

investigating the options on the market<br />

and budget permitting, choosing windows<br />

and doors that not only look good but<br />

also offer high performance in terms of<br />

heat retention, noise reduction, deflection<br />

of the effects of the sun and reduced<br />

condensation.<br />

Your guide to all things Real Estate<br />

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

Some insights into<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>’s rental market<br />

When choosing a property to rent in<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>, several factors to include budget,<br />

location, type of property, number of<br />

bedrooms, and pet-friendliness. Taylor<br />

Staines from Real Property Management<br />

has provided some insights into the current<br />

situation in <strong>Selwyn</strong>.<br />

What is the current market doing<br />

in <strong>Selwyn</strong>?<br />

There have been increased properties<br />

available for rent in the <strong>Selwyn</strong> area.<br />

These properties rent within a reasonable<br />

timeframe, provided landlords are realistic<br />

about rates and prepared to meet the<br />

market.<br />

What are tenants looking for in a<br />

rental property?<br />

Generally, tenants want to feel warm and<br />

safe in their homes. They seek properties<br />

with good heating and window coverings<br />

to help with cooler weather and save<br />

money on heating, and adequate storage.<br />

Privacy from the street and neighbours<br />

is also important to tenants, so landlords<br />

should consider window coverings that<br />

offer privacy while allowing tenants to open<br />

them.<br />

What do owners look for in<br />

tenants?<br />

Fundamentally, landlords want tenants<br />

who will meet their obligations under<br />

the Residential Tenancies Act, keep the<br />

property clean and tidy, and pay their rent<br />

on time.<br />

What should tenants be aware of ?<br />

When selecting a property, tenants should<br />

avoid landlords unfamiliar with the various<br />

legislation a landlord must follow, or who<br />

asks for more information than legally<br />

required (where the tenant works, for<br />

example). If a landlord does not hold smoke<br />

alarm records or complete and provide a<br />

full healthy homes statement, the tenant<br />

should consider what other breaches the<br />

landlord may commit during the tenancy.<br />

Pet bonds have not yet been introduced<br />

into law, so a landlord should not request<br />

them. During a tenancy, tenants should be<br />

aware that breaches of the Act (damage,<br />

rent arrears, low cleaning standards, etc)<br />

may prevent them from securing another<br />

rental, particularly during a tight market.<br />

Unfortunately, there are scammers out<br />

there, and tenants should never hand over<br />

any money without viewing the property,<br />

particularly when a landlord is requesting<br />

this with some urgency.<br />

What should landlords be aware<br />

of ?<br />

Landlords should be aware of the myriad<br />

of regulations to follow now – this includes<br />

the Residential Tenancies Act, Privacy<br />

Act (specific rules about what a landlord<br />

can ask a tenant and at what stage of the<br />

application process they can ask), the<br />

Health and Safety at Work Act, the Building<br />

Code, healthy homes and smoke alarm<br />

regulations. Fines for failing to comply<br />

with smoke alarm regulations carry a max<br />

penalty of $7200, and WorkSafe breaches<br />

can reach hundreds of thousands. Many<br />

clients don’t realise their insurance relies on<br />

numerous landlord obligations, including<br />

documenting evidence of quarterly<br />

inspections. When selecting a tenant, a<br />

landlord should base their decisions on<br />

a selection of facts around rental history,<br />

ability to pay rent, credit and background<br />

checking, and finding the tenant that will<br />

be the best fit for their style of property.<br />

A happy tenant is likely to stay longer,<br />

maximising their investment.<br />
