POOLSIDE AT PARIS<br />

• By Sam Coughlan<br />

WHEN CHRISTINE Cassin began<br />

officiating swim meets nearly 20<br />

years ago, she could never have<br />

imagined where it would lead to.<br />

From representative meetings<br />

to the international stage at world<br />

championships and events, next<br />

month will see her officiate at<br />

the pinnacle of global sport – the<br />

Olympic Games.<br />

Cassin, from Lincoln, is the<br />

only New Zealander who will be a<br />

poolside official at the Paris games,<br />

testimony to the high regard and<br />

reputation she has forged during her<br />

time in the sport.<br />

Northland’s Ross Gillespie will be<br />

a referee at the open water events at<br />

the games, while his wife Carlrine<br />

will be poolside at the Paralympics,<br />

which follow the Olympics.<br />

Cassin is one of only two<br />

Canterbury officials in Paris<br />

alongside Gareth Greenfield, who<br />

will umpire hockey in what is his<br />

first Olympic Games.<br />

“This is the ultimate goal, and to<br />

have actually achieved it at this age<br />

is very special,” 65-year-old Cassin<br />

said.<br />

“I was almost speechless, it’s a real<br />

privilege to have been chosen.”<br />

Proposed<br />

design for<br />

major road<br />

frustrates<br />

residents<br />

• By Daniel Alvey<br />

THE PROPOSED design for one<br />

of Rolleston’s main roads has<br />

residents concerned about future<br />

access to their properties.<br />

Residents from Levi Rd and<br />

surrounding streets met with the<br />

council to raise their concerns.<br />

The council is planning to<br />

widen Levi Rd, add a flush median<br />

strip, and install traffic lights<br />

to replace the roundabout at Levi<br />

Rd, Lincoln Rolleston Rd, Lowes<br />

Rd, and Masefield Drive.<br />

The proposed design of the traffic<br />

lights will also see a concrete<br />

median barrier installed on Levi<br />

Rd, blocking right-turn access to<br />

three properties near the roundabout.<br />

One of those properties is<br />

owned by Alan and Joy Haylock.<br />

Alan Haylock said the proposed<br />

traffic island was because of an<br />

exit from Pak’nSave.<br />

Groundwork on the new supermarket<br />

at 157 Levi Rd started<br />

earlier this month.<br />

“Ours is the only one (road)<br />

with a traffic island . . . and is because<br />

of an exit from Pak’nSave.<br />

“The whole thing is poorly<br />

planned,” Haylock said.<br />

NEWS 3<br />

‘I’ve had countless sleepless nights’<br />

• By Daniel Alvey<br />

CAM KENYON has called time<br />

on his volunteer firefighting<br />

career, which stretches back 36<br />

years.<br />

The Rolleston volunteer fire<br />

chief has had three stints with<br />

the brigade, the most recent<br />

starting in 2013. He has been<br />

chief for about five years.<br />

“I always wanted to be a fireman.<br />

When I turned 16, I went<br />

down and saw the chief at the<br />

time and spoke to him on one of<br />

the training nights. He said ‘come<br />

back in a couple of weeks’, and so I<br />

went back and joined up.”<br />

But Kenyon, 52, will remain<br />

a professional firefighter at<br />

Christchurch Airport, where he<br />

has been since 2004.<br />

He said going to call-outs at a<br />

young age matured him.<br />

He recalled one where his<br />

mum stayed up for him until<br />

he got home because she felt he<br />

could be affected by what he had<br />

seen.<br />

“I went to a house fire in<br />

Springston and the guy ended<br />

up dying and I went home and<br />

mum was up.<br />

“Talking to her now, it was her<br />

instinct that she thought I might<br />

just stay up for this one.”<br />

A road fatality involving a<br />

drunk driver prompted a young<br />

Kenyon to help set up Students<br />

‘I just got that point where<br />

I thought I’ve achieved<br />

what I wanted to achieve.<br />

I didn’t want to be one of<br />

those grumpy old chiefs<br />

that sit in a position and<br />

don’t let other people have<br />

that choice’ – Cam Kenyon<br />

TIME TO DE-STRESS: Rolleston fire chief Cam Kenyon is bowing out to spend more time<br />

with family.<br />

Against Drunk Driving, now<br />

known as Students Against Dangerous<br />

Driving, when he was at<br />

Lincoln High School.<br />

Alongside his stints at Rolleston,<br />

Kenyon was a firefighter in<br />

the army.<br />

Kenyon said he stepped down<br />

from the role of chief to spend<br />

more time with family.<br />

“I just got that point where<br />

I thought I’ve achieved what I<br />

wanted to achieve. I didn’t want<br />

to be one of those grumpy old<br />

chiefs that sit in a position and<br />

don’t let other people have that<br />

choice.<br />

“There’s been countless<br />

sleepless nights and it’s time to<br />

de-stress and let the young ones<br />

take over.”<br />

Kenyon and his wife Raewyn<br />

have five children between them.<br />

“I have got three, a daughter<br />

and two sons, who are all grown<br />

up and working, and then<br />

Raewyn’s got two boys.<br />

“I’ve also got a grand-daughter<br />

and she’s the boss.”<br />

Kenyon is planning a move<br />

EARLY DAYS: A young<br />

Kenyon aged about 19<br />

before he joined the army.<br />

to Darfield.<br />

“We’ve bought a plot of land,<br />

hopefully early next year we’ll<br />

build on it.”<br />

Kenyon won’t be totally cutting<br />

his ties with the brigade.<br />

He will now become part of a<br />

tradition.<br />

“I’ll be known as one of the<br />

old fossils,” he said of a group<br />

which catches up at the fire<br />

station after training nights.<br />

FLOW: Traffic lights will replace the roundabout of Levi Rd, Lincoln<br />

Design plan yet to be<br />

finalised, council says<br />

• From page 1<br />

Haylock said he proposed a design with<br />

a flush median instead of the barrier.<br />

“They (council) told me they would put<br />

it the tendering process.”<br />

Council executive<br />

director of infrastructure<br />

and property Tim Mason<br />

said the council is still<br />

finalising the design<br />

and will work with<br />

residents.<br />

Tim Mason<br />

“The proposed design<br />

currently is based on a<br />

safety audit to meet the<br />

national road safety guidelines and we<br />

are actively looking at what we can do to<br />

address the concerns raised,” Mason<br />

said.<br />

The traffic lights are being installed to<br />

address congestion issues and improve<br />

pedestrian access.<br />

The latest traffic count from the council<br />

in 2022 showed about 10,000 vehicles used<br />

the road a day.<br />

Traffic in the area is only expected to<br />

increase. The new Pak’nSave is due to be<br />

completed by late 2025. A Mitre 10 on<br />

Lincoln Rolleston Rd next to Pak’nSave<br />

is planned, with the consenting process<br />

under way.<br />

NZ Transport Agency Waka Kotahi has<br />

highlighted Levi Rd as one of the main<br />

commuter and freight access points for<br />

Rolleston, with traffic coming from the<br />

Weedons interchange.<br />

Further down Levi Rd, resident Beth<br />

Roche would like to see a median strip<br />

added outside her property.<br />

She battles every morning to get out of<br />

her driveway due to congestion and has<br />

traffic build up behind her when waiting<br />

to turn right into her driveway.<br />

“We constantly get honked at, abused<br />

or dangerous manoeuvres into oncoming<br />

traffic,” Roche said.<br />

Roche said her car had been hit while<br />

parked on the roadside and a painter had<br />

his van side-swiped while working at her<br />

house.<br />

Mason said the road widening will<br />

start this financial year, but could not<br />

confirm where the median strips will<br />

placed.<br />

“The design is not finalised, however,<br />

the plan has been to include flush medians<br />

where appropriate as part of the upgrade<br />

of the road to bring it up to the standards<br />

of an arterial road.<br />

“Council will work with developers<br />

who are also required to provide their<br />

own upgrades along Levi Rd as their<br />

subdivisions eventuate.”<br />

Every four years the<br />

international technical officials’<br />

referee list is renewed. Cassin is<br />

currently in her third and final<br />

four-year term, which lasts until<br />

the end of 20<strong>26</strong>.<br />

“Once you turn 65 you can’t<br />

apply to go on a list. I was 64<br />

when I applied.”<br />

Poolside, Cassin is one of 32<br />

officials who will be involved in<br />

a number of tasks from checking<br />

a swimmer’s start and finish,<br />

ensuring they are doing the<br />

strokes and kicks correctly, to<br />

monitoring the call room before<br />

athletes come out to the pool.<br />

Cassin never swam<br />

competitively, but developed a<br />

passion for the sport through her<br />

children Holly and Ashley who<br />

were competitive swimmers.<br />

In 2010, she became a regional<br />

referee and a national referee<br />

two years later. In 2015, she<br />

successfully applied for one of<br />

New Zealand’s six positions on<br />

the World Aquatics international<br />

technical officials list.<br />

She officiated at the 2015<br />

(Singapore) and 2017 (United<br />

States) world junior champs<br />

and the 2019 and 2023 World<br />

Aquatics championships<br />

in South Korea and Japan<br />

respectively.<br />

Cassin will be in Paris for<br />

12 days, nine of those spent at<br />

the swimming events at the<br />

Paris La Défense Arena, a multipurpose<br />

indoor arena developed<br />

by rugby club Racing 92 which<br />

opened in 2017.<br />

The Olympics will be the first<br />

time swimming and water polo<br />

events will be held at the venue.<br />

The arena has the world’s<br />

largest interactive giant screen,<br />

with innovative technology<br />

and 1400m² of display area<br />

(equivalent to seven tennis<br />

courts).<br />

A Wharenui club member,<br />

most of her weekends are spent<br />

officiating.<br />

“We have competitions pretty<br />

much every other weekend,<br />

so it’s quite full-on. I’m on the<br />

Swimming Canterbury West<br />

Coast technical committee and<br />

I’m the technical representative<br />

on our events committee, so I’m<br />

reasonably involved in planning<br />

of our calendar and going to<br />

those meets.<br />

“It can be quite a commitment<br />

time-wise, but I do love the<br />

involvement. Swimming is<br />

everything, it’s my passion.”<br />

Road to Wellness welcomes Dr. Jackie Chambers<br />

Road to Wellness is excited to welcome Dr.<br />

Jackie Chambers, joining Dr. Karyn Brents and<br />

Dr. Renee Benterman. She brings her unique<br />

approach to holistic wellness, focusing on<br />

empowering people to achieve optimal health<br />

and well-being. Jackie offers clients a broad<br />

approach to healing, with 25 years of practice as<br />

a qualified Chiropractor, Applied Kinesiologist,<br />

and Reiki practitioner. The team at Road to<br />

Wellness brings different skills and techniques,<br />

but all have a natural and holistic perspective on<br />

approaching clients’ healthcare.<br />

Jackie loves working with people and using<br />

natural and holistic techniques to help her<br />

clients achieve optimal function. She helps<br />

clients feel that they are in control of their<br />

health and can succeed in making the changes<br />

they need to make to be able to heal. She<br />

advises, “It’s about empowering clients by<br />

helping them realise their potential, rather than<br />

them giving their power over to a practitioner.”<br />

Applied Kinesiology has been Jackie’s main<br />

focus – a different form of chiropractic that uses<br />

muscle testing and takes a mind-body approach,<br />

looking holistically at a client’s health. She uses<br />

Applied Kinesiology techniques to assess and<br />

correct imbalances in the different systems<br />

of the body, including the nerve, immune,<br />

hormonal, and digestive systems, among others.<br />

She also addresses the emotional and mental<br />

aspects of the client. This helps bring balance<br />

and optimal function to all areas of the body. As<br />

an experienced Reiki practitioner, Jackie also<br />

offers energy healing at Road to Wellness.<br />

With a long interest in health, Jackie tries<br />

to live healthily and by the advice she gives to<br />

others. Her cheerful and approachable manner<br />

helps build connections with each client.<br />

Jackie explains, “I like to provide a safe and<br />

comfortable healing space for them so they<br />

can come in, feel heard, and we can build that<br />

healing connection.” She is very empathic and<br />

GET BACK TO DOING THE THINGS YOU LOVE.<br />

intuitive and wants to know more about the<br />

person and what’s going on in their life, “to<br />

know what’s going on with them, rather than<br />

just what symptoms they’re coming in with.”<br />

Jackie suggests that people with health issues<br />

seek help in different areas. She encourages<br />

them to research, educate themselves, and<br />

advocate for their health. Jackie and Road to<br />

Wellness can advocate for and empower them<br />

in their healing journey. Appointments with<br />

Jackie are available on Monday, Wednesday, or<br />

Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.<br />

Conveniently located at Level 2, 80 Rolleston<br />

Advocacy group finds new focus<br />

After taking on one of<br />

Canterbury’s biggest<br />

developers, Lincoln<br />

Voice is gearing up to<br />

advocate for the district’s<br />

second-biggest town.<br />

Reporter Daniel Alvey<br />

talks to secretary and<br />

spokesperson Denise<br />

Carrick about what’s<br />

next<br />

OVER THE NEXT decade,<br />

Lincoln’s population is expected<br />

to grow from about 10,400 to<br />

14,000 – a rise Lincoln Voice says<br />

the town is not ready for.<br />

“A lot of people are coming to<br />

Lincoln and this will put pressure<br />

on roads, schools, and other<br />

infrastructure,” Carrick said.<br />

“The Lincoln town centre<br />

upgrades for Gerald St is eight<br />

years overdue and still has not<br />

been given priority in the Long<br />

Term Plan.”<br />

Groundwork for the 1710-home<br />

Carter Group subdivision Lincoln<br />

South will start in September and<br />

will account for a majority of the<br />

growth.<br />

Lincoln Voice spent about two<br />

years fighting the development<br />

until bowing out in April.<br />

In 2022 Carrick and other<br />

residents concerned about<br />

Lincoln South went to the<br />

now-disestablished Lincoln<br />

Community Committee. The<br />

committee told the residents it<br />

could not help because it was a<br />

council-controlled organisation.<br />

“A group of us went to see them<br />

to do something about PC69<br />

(Lincoln South), but they felt they<br />

couldn’t,” Carrick said.<br />

After failing to get the<br />

committee’s support, Lincoln<br />

Voice was formed as an<br />

incorporated society by the<br />

residents to fight the Carter Group<br />

application.<br />

Lincoln Voice appealed to the<br />

Environment Court in August<br />

2022, raising about $15,000 to<br />

help with legal costs but their<br />

appeal was never heard.<br />

At the same time, Carter Group<br />

was applying for a private plan<br />

change – it had also applied to<br />

have the land rezoned as part of<br />

the District Plan review, a process<br />

in which Lincoln Voice was never<br />

involved.<br />

The District Plan was<br />

adopted in August last year in<br />

a controversial vote where only<br />

six district councillors were<br />

present in a closed-door meeting<br />

to vote on the hearing panel’s<br />

recommendations for the future.<br />

By approving the plan, it made<br />

the Lincoln Voice appeal nulland-void.<br />

Almost a year later it<br />

remains a sore point for Carrick.<br />

“We still think the whole thing<br />

was completely wrong.”<br />

After the vote, Lincoln Voice<br />

looked at any avenue they could<br />

to keep fighting the development,<br />

which included investigating a<br />

NEW DIRECTION: Lincoln Voice spokesperson Denise<br />

Carrick says the group is now focusing on all issues facing<br />

Lincoln and has launched a road safety petition.<br />

judicial review of the council’s<br />

decision. But, after taking legal<br />

advice, the group withdrew the<br />

appeal, ending the battle.<br />

Any remaining funds raised<br />

for the fight were given to the<br />

Environmental Defence Society,<br />

which had helped advise the<br />

group with its appeal.<br />

Following the defeat, some<br />

members left the group.<br />

“Some people left because they<br />

were only interested in Lincoln<br />

South,” Carrick said.<br />

While the group still has a<br />

mailing list of about 280, just<br />

three members are left on the<br />

committee – Carrick, chair Aaron<br />

McGlinchey, and committee<br />

member Tracey MacLeod. But the<br />

group wants to add to that as it<br />

starts to move on to other issues<br />

BEGINNINGS: Lincoln Voice members outside council<br />

offices in <strong>June</strong> 2022 after presenting a letter opposing the<br />

Lincoln South development.<br />

Tracey<br />

MacLeod<br />

Aaron<br />

McGlinchey<br />

with the search for a treasurer<br />

and another committee member<br />

ongoing.<br />

“All our efforts were going into<br />

the appeal but we were always<br />

going to look at environment and<br />

social issues and speak up for<br />

anything that affected Lincoln,”<br />

Carrick said.<br />

“Anything anyone is passionate<br />

about, they can come to us.”<br />

Carrick became the<br />

spokesperson due to others<br />

not wanting to be known in<br />

the community while fighting<br />

Lincoln South.<br />

“It can be hard. I do have people<br />

come up to me in the supermarket<br />

now, and that’s fine, but it’s not<br />

something I wanted.”<br />

All three remaining group<br />

members are Lincoln residents,<br />

with Carrick working in learning<br />

support at Rolleston College, and<br />

MacLeod owning a consultancy<br />

business.<br />

The group’s post-Lincoln South<br />

focus has turned to road safety.<br />

The campaign focuses on<br />

intersection safety and upgrades<br />

to the roads around the Lincoln<br />

town centre.<br />

This month, Carrick and<br />

MacLeod presented a petition<br />

with 769 signatures to the council<br />

calling for lit-up flashing stop<br />

signs to be installed at dangerous<br />

intersections, a reduction<br />

of speed in the approach to<br />

intersections, and better visibility<br />

by the removing trees around<br />

intersections.<br />

Carrick is hoping the council<br />

takes notice and makes changes.<br />

“Hopefully this will help add<br />

pressure to make our roads<br />

around Lincoln and <strong>Selwyn</strong> safer,<br />

sooner.<br />

“Action needs to be taken before<br />

any more people are unnecessarily<br />

killed or injured, and to make it<br />

safer for children to get to school.”<br />

MacLeod told the council<br />

Lincoln now has rush-hour traffic.<br />

“As somebody who was an<br />

Aucklander, I understand peak<br />

hour, and Lincoln now has peak<br />

hour.”<br />

The Lincoln Residents<br />

Association is another group<br />

formed after the council shut<br />

down the community committee.<br />

Carrick said they hope the two<br />

groups can work together.<br />

‘We would hope to work with<br />

them definitely.”<br />

Interim association chair<br />

Kathryn Claridge said the group<br />

would be happy to work with<br />

Lincoln Voice.<br />

“We’ll consult with any<br />

organisation in the committee no<br />

problem,” Claridge said.<br />

Lincoln Voice is planning to<br />

hold an annual meeting in August<br />

but has yet to set a date.<br />

BIG WINNERS: Rolleston College<br />

with their awards.<br />

Rolleston College and Lincoln High School were among the big winners<br />

at Showquest regionals. The competition was held over two days at the<br />

Christchurch Town Hall last week. High schools and primary schools from<br />

around Canterbury were challenged to create an original stage-based mini<br />

Broadway production that follows the elements of art, music, dance, drama,<br />

culture and technology. It is completely student-run, and performances are<br />

centred around an issue most important to them. Rolleston College won<br />

the award for best drama and was highly commended for choreography.<br />

Rolleston was second overall, behind Burnside High School. Rolleston’s<br />

piece was titled ‘Outside the Box’ and focused on the issues women face<br />

to fit societal expectations. Lincoln finished third overall and won the award<br />

for best choreography, was highly commended for styling and highly<br />

commended for soundtrack.<br />

Support for river management a positive step<br />

Environment<br />

Canterbury<br />

Acting Chair Craig Pauling<br />

SPONSORED CONTENT<br />

THE RECENTLY-announced<br />

support from central Government<br />

for flood and river management<br />

measures in Waitaha/Canterbury<br />

is welcome news.<br />

Co-funding, drawn from a new<br />

Regional Infrastructure Fund,<br />

will help speed progress on a<br />

range of projects identified in the<br />

Before the Deluge 2.0 report.<br />

This report is a business case<br />

put together by unitary and<br />

regional councils, advocating<br />

for co-investment in river<br />

resilience and flood management<br />

infrastructure.<br />

The projects in Waitaha that<br />

will benefit are:<br />

• Rangitata Flood and<br />

Resilience Works – Stage 2<br />

• Regional Structure Upgrade<br />

and Adaptation Programme<br />

• Waitarakao, Washdyke and<br />

Seadown Flood Works.<br />

We and other councils have<br />

been asking for Wellington’s<br />

support on this for a long time<br />

now, so it’s pleasing to see the<br />

Government acknowledging that<br />

help is needed.<br />

As we’ve always said, it<br />

shouldn’t be up to ratepayers to<br />

foot the entire bill for protecting<br />

communities from the risks of<br />

natural hazards. If a key piece of<br />

infrastructure is taken out by a<br />

flooding river, the effects can be<br />

felt far beyond the community<br />

itself. It’s in the entire country’s<br />

best interests to protect roads,<br />

bridges, railway lines and other<br />

important lifelines, and therefore<br />

the Government has a key role to<br />

play.<br />

As I see it, this co-funding<br />

– together with a new targeted<br />

rate being introduced in <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

– signals a new way of working<br />

towards river resilience.<br />

The targeted rate, to be<br />

introduced through our Long-<br />

Term Plan <strong>2024</strong>-34, spreads the<br />

cost of flood and river resilience<br />

works across all ratepayers in the<br />

district.<br />

This is in addition to the six<br />

dedicated river and drainage<br />

rating districts that already exist.<br />

So those who benefit from<br />

works that directly affect their<br />

property are still paying their<br />

share, while the costs of districtwide<br />

work will be spread more<br />

evenly.<br />

In Year 1, the targeted rate<br />

will add $7.08 to rates bills for<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> households, which will go<br />

towards:<br />

CRUCIAL WORK: Co-funding from central Government will help speed progress on flood<br />

and river management projects identified in the Before the Deluge 2.0 report.<br />

• Investigation and development<br />

of a forward work programme<br />

• Initial work clearing out<br />

channels and flow paths<br />

• Weed control and planting.<br />

The targeted rate is a trial, so<br />

depending on its success, it could<br />

potentially be replicated in other<br />

districts in the future.<br />

River resilience isn’t only about<br />

flood management.<br />

We’re moving towards a ‘whole<br />

of catchment’ approach – a more<br />

holistic way of looking at rivers<br />

and the land around them.<br />

Our awa are unique and<br />

one size does not fit all. We<br />

want to manage rivers from the<br />

mountains to the sea, ki uta ki<br />

tai – acknowledging the impact<br />

of the wider environment on the<br />

health of our awa, and the way<br />

they behave.<br />

There’s still a lot more to do<br />

to protect our farms, homes,<br />

businesses and infrastructure<br />

from the type of deluges we saw in<br />

Waitaha in 2021.<br />

By looking at the bigger picture<br />

and the range of values we need to<br />

manage – we can drive efficiencies<br />

and develop solutions that are<br />

long lasting, more equitable and<br />

sustainable.<br />

For example, fairway clearance<br />

deals with both biosecurity issues<br />

relating to weed species, as well<br />

as creating biodiversity outcomes<br />

for braided river birds – while<br />

allowing our rivers to flow,<br />

lessening flood risks.<br />

Likewise, providing strategic<br />

locations where rivers are given<br />

more room, similar to what<br />

we are doing on the Hakatere/<br />

Ashburton River, can allow for<br />

planned gravel accumulation and<br />

removal.<br />

These are all things we are<br />

working towards, and for which<br />

both the co-investment from<br />

Government, and our districtwide<br />

rating trial are helping to<br />

achieve.<br />

Project aims to boost<br />

participation in sport<br />

DISTRICT HIGH schools have<br />

partnered with the <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

Sports Trust to develop a project<br />

that creates more sporting<br />

opportunities for students.<br />

Ellesmere College, Darfield<br />

High School, Lincoln High<br />

School and Rolleston College<br />

have come together to support<br />

the vision.<br />

It will enable students to play<br />

sport, be more active, learn crucial<br />

coaching skills, and develop<br />

friendship and connections<br />

through competition.<br />

Rolleston College principal<br />

Rachel Skelton supports the<br />

partnership.<br />

“Our region continues to see<br />

significant growth, particularly<br />

with young families whose children<br />

are now feeding into our<br />

growing secondary schools.<br />

“The timing of this partnership<br />

is perfect so we can ensure<br />

we have alignment going into<br />

the future.”<br />

Ellesmere College principal<br />

Ronan Bass said the opportunity<br />

to work with the trust was a<br />

very beneficial and satisfactory<br />

learning experience.<br />

“The discussion between the<br />

four schools and the <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

Sports Trust has been robust,<br />

PARTNERSHIP: <strong>Selwyn</strong> Sports Trust’s Kate Lloyd, Isaac<br />

Group chief executive Jeremy Dixon, and <strong>Selwyn</strong> Sports<br />

Trust operations manager Mitch Prendergast.<br />

and to see this plan come to life<br />

is very satisfying for everyone<br />

involved.”<br />

The project aims to get students<br />

more involved in playing<br />

sport.<br />

Six initiatives have been developed<br />

to encourage this.<br />

They include an annual<br />

combined schools athletics day,<br />

a specialised coaching programme<br />

and an annual ki-orahi<br />

festival.<br />

Isaac Construction and<br />

Lincoln University are also<br />

involved, assisting the trust in<br />

developing more initiatives.<br />

Kate Lloyd has been working<br />

with the trust for the last two<br />

years, and has been promoted<br />

to a leadership position to help<br />

deliver the new body of work<br />

which will be focusing on<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> students.<br />

“I’m really excited by this<br />

new role as it focuses on a really<br />

important age group that I am<br />

really passionate about.”<br />

PETS & PAWS<br />

Microchipping: Proactive care for your pets<br />

Lost pets in <strong>Selwyn</strong> are common,<br />

and looking for your lost fur baby can<br />

be stressful. One of the easiest ways<br />

for pets to be found and reunited with<br />

their owners is to be microchipped and<br />

registered on the database.<br />

These days, microchipping is not only<br />

normal but mandatory for NZ dogs. In<br />

New Zealand, microchipping is required<br />

by law for dogs that are first registered<br />

after July 1, 2006, with the exception<br />

of working farm dogs. Puppies must<br />

be registered by three months old and<br />

microchipped within the following<br />

two months. It is not required for dogs<br />

who were first registered before then,<br />

except those classified as dangerous,<br />

menacing, or impounded. The <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

District Council offers free monthly<br />

microchipping clinics for dogs.<br />

Marley (Evening Puzzle)<br />

Dog available for adoption through<br />

Nightrave Greyhounds<br />

Beautiful boy Marley is an absolutely<br />

delightful 3 year old fellow. Marley loves<br />

people, cuddles, kids and gets on well<br />

with other dogs. He can take a while to<br />

settle in new situations but given time<br />

grows in confidence. Marley would be ok<br />

to stay home alone when his people are<br />

out and about.<br />

https://www.facebook.com/nightravegreyhoundssouthisland<br />

Www.Nightrave.co.nz<br />

Once microchipped, the information or<br />

microchip certificate from the vet must be<br />

recorded on the National Dog Database.<br />

This can be done by sending a copy of the<br />

microchip number to dogs@wcc.govt.nz.<br />

Failure to comply with the law may result<br />

in a warning or a $300 fine.<br />

In <strong>Selwyn</strong>, all domestic cats over<br />

four months must be microchipped<br />

and registered with the approved<br />

microchip registry, the New Zealand<br />

Companion Animals Register (NZCAR).<br />

Microchipping can be done at a local vet<br />

and costs owners between $15 and $20,<br />

plus vet fees. Online registration with<br />

NZCAR costs a one-off fee of $15.<br />

Microchipping Facts:<br />

• A microchip is a computer chip about<br />

the size of a single grain of rice.<br />

• Microchips have a unique number<br />

stored in the National Dog Database<br />

or the New Zealand Companion<br />

Animals Register with the pet’s<br />

registered details.<br />

• A microchip scanner can check the<br />

microchip number.<br />

• A microchip is permanent, so you<br />

only ever need to get it placed once.<br />

• The microchip is placed in the scruff<br />

of the neck, just under the skin.<br />

• It only takes seconds to insert.<br />

• It is rare for a microchip to move<br />

around.<br />

• The microchip does not include a<br />

GPS (Global Positioning System) or<br />

personal information about the owner.<br />

• Side effects are rare, and there will<br />

usually be only some inflammation<br />

around the injection site.<br />

• Owners should also keep their pet’s<br />

microchip details updated if they<br />

move or transfer ownership of the<br />

animal.<br />

• Some studies show cats with<br />

microchips are 20 times as likely to<br />

be returned home than they would<br />

otherwise.<br />

Vixen (Epic Vixen)<br />

Dog available for adoption through<br />

Greyhounds As Pets<br />

Vixen is a snuggly, sweet and gentle<br />

soul with a huge heart. She adores<br />

children and men and will pop her head<br />

on your shoulder for a proper cuddle.<br />

Vixen is dog social with all breeds and<br />

enjoys her walks. Vixen has a minor<br />

medical issue, similar to OCD which<br />

she is medicated for.<br />

Consecutive colts titles for dominant Bales<br />

• By Sam Coughlan<br />

THE LINCOLN Bales have won<br />

their second combined country<br />

colts title in a row with a <strong>26</strong>-20<br />

victory over Prebbleton.<br />

The Bales were leading <strong>26</strong>-3 at<br />

one stage before a late fightback<br />

from Prebbleton saw the<br />

scoreline tighten up.<br />

Head coach Tim Knowles said<br />

his side played an outstanding<br />

game.<br />

“We held on to the ball for<br />

long periods of time and denied<br />

them possession, which resulted<br />

in us putting enough pressure<br />

on to get the points up.<br />

“(We) took<br />

our foot off the<br />

throat towards<br />

the end and they<br />

got back pretty<br />

close.”<br />

Knowles says<br />

he hopes the<br />

success of the<br />

Bales – who<br />

also reached the<br />

Tim<br />

Knowles<br />

final of the Ellesmere competition<br />

last year, and lead the way<br />

with two rounds to go this<br />

year – translates into division 1<br />

accolades in future.<br />

“There have been quite a few<br />

colts players who have already<br />

stepped up this year (to division<br />

1). Probably at least five of the<br />

boys, maybe six,” Knowles said.<br />

“(I’m) just hoping that trend<br />

continues over the next few<br />

years, that when they age up<br />

over 21, they stick around and<br />

want to play div 1 while they’re<br />

here.<br />

“I certainly see good signs for<br />

the div 1 side in the next sort<br />

of three or four years, as some<br />

of these younger guys get a bit<br />

more experience.”<br />

The Bales will continue their<br />

Ellesmere season on Friday<br />

against Darfield at Darfield<br />

Domain.<br />

VICTORS: The Lincoln Bales after winning the combined<br />

country colts trophy on Saturday. ​<br />

More heartbreak for Prebbleton<br />

• By Sam Coughlan<br />

PREBBLETON’S focus now<br />

switches to the Coleman Shield<br />

after coming up short in the<br />

final of the combined country<br />

competition for the second year<br />

in a row.<br />

The Penguins went down 41-27<br />

to Glenmark-Cheviot on Saturday,<br />

denying them the chance<br />

to win their first combined title<br />

after losing to Ashburton Celtic<br />

last year.<br />

Head coach Simon Fitzgerald<br />

said the loss hurt.<br />

“It certainly hurts. It’s something<br />

the group had set out as<br />

their aim at the start of the year,<br />

to win this competition that we<br />

came so close in last year.”<br />

Prebbleton’s attention now<br />

turns to the Coleman Shield –<br />

where they are defending champions<br />

after last year winning<br />

their first title in 49 years.<br />

They head the table, one point<br />

clear of Waihora.<br />

Fitzgerald said their motivation<br />

was the same it had always<br />

been – they want to defend their<br />

title, after losing the final in both<br />

2021 and 2022.<br />

“(We’ve got) a group there that<br />

are really hungry for success<br />

after having knocked on the door<br />

for several years,” he said.<br />

“And it’s just about capitalising<br />

on the opportunities now and<br />

making sure we convert more<br />

into some trophies like we did<br />

last year.”<br />

They take on Springston<br />

on Saturday, thefirst of three<br />

matches before the finals.<br />

Fitzgerald said Springston<br />

would pose a stern test.<br />

“They’re a gritty team and they<br />

bring lots of hunger, lots of fight,<br />

and they’re quite abrasive in the<br />

contact area.<br />

“We’ll have to make sure we’re<br />

up for the fight from minute one<br />

against them.”<br />

Waihora take on West Melton<br />

in the first match of the round on<br />

Thursday night at Rhodes Park,<br />

before Darfield and Lincoln<br />

do battle on Friday at Darfield<br />

Domain.<br />

The other match on Saturday<br />

sees Southbridge play away to<br />

Hornby.<br />

All top dogs to be<br />

registered from <strong>June</strong><br />

If you call for Bella at Kakaha dog park, you’re<br />

likely to grab someone else’s dog’s attention,<br />

as this was the leading name for dogs<br />

registered in the year 2023/24.<br />

If Bella is a labrador, she also takes the title of<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>’s most ‘pup-ular’ dog breed, with 2,231<br />

labradors registered for the year 2023/24.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> has one of the highest rates of dog<br />

ownerships in the country with one in five<br />

households owning a dog. Bella the labrador is<br />

likely to be one of more than 17,000 dogs in<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> set to become official for <strong>2024</strong>/25 year.<br />

Visitors honour the memory of Rewi Alley<br />

The great granddaughter of <strong>Selwyn</strong> resident<br />

Rewi Alley helped mark the ongoing relationship<br />

between Springfield and China in a special<br />

ceremony with the Chinese Minister of International<br />

Relations of the Central Congress last month.<br />

Alley, born in Springfield, spent 60 years working<br />

in China, where he adopted two boys. Luyi Duan,<br />

the great granddaughter of one of the boys visited<br />

Springfield on 25 May with Minister Liu Jianchao<br />

for a special ceremony including guests from the<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Sister City Committee, Malvern Community<br />

Eli and Lora Cooper planted a gingko tree and Mayor<br />

Sam Broughton assisted with laying a wreath.<br />

Luyi is a universtiy assistant professor and lawyer<br />

specialising in Intellectual Property Law. Her<br />

name is a Chinese derivation of Rewi. She was<br />

accompanied by two Alley family members on her<br />

visit. She also visited Darfield High School, which<br />

is a Sister School with Shandan Bailie Vocational<br />

College, established by her great grandfather.<br />

Consultation opens 1 July – 4 August<br />

scan to view our interactive website.<br />

With the district’s booming population (and<br />

pupulation) the Council has increased fees for<br />

the first time in over three years. The increases<br />

have been kept to the minimum amount<br />

necessary to keep delivering these services.<br />

Owners with dogs aged three months and<br />

over need to renew their registration with the<br />

Council, before 1 August. If you register your<br />

dogs before 31 July you will be eligible for a<br />

discounted fee of $60, instead of $75.<br />

Registration fees<br />

help to pay for the<br />

Council’s dog control<br />

services; including<br />

reuniting owners with<br />

their pets, helping<br />

with complaints,<br />

microchipping clinics<br />

and running dog<br />

safety education<br />

programmes.<br />

SPORT 23<br />

Tough to balance depth, development<br />

Bevan Sisson<br />

Rugby matters<br />

A LOT OF TIMES in life you<br />

seem to come up against a<br />

brick wall that seems to be<br />

impenetrable. No matter how<br />

hard you push you can’t seem to<br />

break through.<br />

This is how some players must<br />

feel when they can’t cement a<br />

permanent playing spot in their<br />

franchise.<br />

With Super Rugby wrapped<br />

up for <strong>2024</strong>, the selection<br />

meetings and planning for 2025<br />

squads are now under way.<br />

There will be plenty of players<br />

locked-in already for most<br />

franchises, but the fine balance<br />

of keeping promising players<br />

within the group is always a<br />

challenge.<br />

As a player, how long do you<br />

keep trying to break down that<br />

wall. If you are ranked fourth or<br />

fifth on the depth chart, how do<br />

you become part of the matchday<br />

23 if you can’t get game<br />

time.<br />

While I was part of the NZ<br />

under-20s selection panel, there<br />

where times when we couldn’t<br />

always agree. Though we had<br />

SELWYN ARTISTIC swimmers<br />

are looking ahead to the<br />

national championships after<br />

a big medal haul at the South<br />

Island competition.<br />

An 18-strong group from<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Artistic Swimming took<br />

home 23 gold medals, eight<br />

silvers and four bronzes from<br />

the competition in Queenstown.<br />

Now they’ll get to work<br />

preparing for nationals in<br />

Hamilton in September, which<br />

will be the highest-profile event<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> has competed at.<br />

“It’s their first national<br />

competition, so it’s really<br />

SUCCESS: The artistic<br />

swimming team with their<br />

medal haul at the South<br />

Island championships.<br />

the team and just take it up to<br />

another competition,” said head<br />

coach Chantelle Murray.<br />

Of the 18-strong team who<br />

competed in Queenstown, eight<br />

will be attending nationals –<br />

Kirsta Wright, Alex Wheeler,<br />

players who have had to take<br />

that sideways path from the<br />

Crusaders region. The likes of<br />

Sam Darry, who was part of the<br />

Crusaders set up (but behind a<br />

well-established locking group),<br />

decided to head to the Blues<br />

Lucy Fogarty, Clara Sellier,<br />

Amelia McConnochie, Kelicia<br />

Purcell, and Arrah Pennicott.<br />

Murray said they will be<br />

putting in plenty of hard<br />

work in preparation for the<br />

competition.<br />

“The older girls, they’re<br />

(training) five days a week,<br />

minimum 15 hours training on<br />

top of their schoolwork. They’re<br />

sacrificing a lot of personal time.<br />

“(The others) train twice a<br />

week, usually for around four<br />

hours, and then we give them<br />

land activities to do at home,<br />

like practicing their routine<br />

outside of the water, stretching,<br />

splits, that sort of thing.”<br />

where he is now a permanent<br />

fixture.<br />

Brett Cameron is another who<br />

seemed to get no traction or<br />

consistent game time. Cameron’s<br />

sideways decision was to head<br />

to Japan where he got some<br />

confidence and form back – then<br />

to NPC at Manawatu, where he<br />

was picked up by the Hurricanes<br />

and finished out <strong>2024</strong> as their<br />

starting No 10. Rameka Pohipi is<br />

another Canterbury player who<br />

is now a constant pick in the<br />

Chiefs.<br />

The latest is young up-andcomer<br />

Zach Gallagher who<br />

has come through from being<br />

a junior at Burnside to making<br />

his debut for the Crusaders in<br />

2022. He will now try to ignite<br />

his career with the Hurricanes<br />

from 2025.<br />

The downside to creating and<br />

developing quality depth is you<br />

can’t keep them all, and there is<br />

only so much money – and game<br />

time to keep everyone satisfied.<br />

One person who changed his<br />

direction successfully is Ethan<br />

Roots. Originally picked up<br />

by the Crusaders from North<br />

Harbour, he ended up having<br />

just one appearance in 2020 and<br />

could see no way forward in a<br />

stacked forward pack.<br />

Roots took the biggest<br />

sideways path of all and headed<br />

first to Ospreys and then to<br />

Exeter in England. He had a<br />

storming couple of seasons<br />

and got noticed by the national<br />

coaching and selection group.<br />

Now he is headed back to<br />

NZ, not to play Super Rugby<br />

but as part of England’s touring<br />

team and is set to play against<br />

the ABs, who are now under<br />

his former Super Rugby coach.<br />

He’s gone from doing the haka<br />

as a Māori All Black in 2020 to<br />

facing the haka in <strong>2024</strong>.<br />

There are many more from the<br />

Crusaders region not mentioned,<br />

and there will be many more in<br />

the future, but those players are<br />

a good example that sometimes<br />

heading elsewhere to get another<br />

opinion can prove beneficial and<br />

open other doors.<br />

• It was with great sadness<br />

that we learned of Connor<br />

Garden-Bachop’s passing. I<br />

knew Connor through his time<br />

playing at Lincoln University.<br />

He had a personality that<br />

brightened any room he entered<br />

and an infectious smile that<br />

made it a joy to have him<br />

around. Thoughts and prayers to<br />

his family and friends.<br />

MY PRIDE AND JOY<br />

Advertising Feature<br />

Sleek lines of beauty<br />

With beautiful, standout lines, this 1967<br />

VC Valiant Chrysler is a source of joy for<br />

local Rolleston owner Nick, who bought<br />

the car eight months ago. Nick had been<br />

deciding between the Chrysler, a 1967<br />

Fairlane 500 V8, and a hot-rodded EJ<br />

Holden Wagon. The decision was made<br />

for him when the other cars sold. All<br />

different styles, Nick admits, “If it’s got<br />

beautiful lines and is a good investment,<br />

I’m interested.”<br />

Nick says, “I’ve always had a soft spot for<br />

the lines on this car.” He particularly likes<br />

the sharp, straight, and aggressive molding<br />

lines on the car’s side, leading to the<br />

chrome strip towards the rear teardropshaped<br />

tail lights. Mounted higher than<br />

the boot lid, these tail lights give the<br />

vehicle a fin-like feel.<br />

Nick is the car’s fifth owner, and it has<br />

driven under 100,000 miles. The interior<br />

is original, including the seats, carpet, and<br />

hood lining—and “you gotta love bench<br />

seats!” The exterior has been re-sprayed<br />

but still features the original white-on-blue<br />

combination. It sports after-market mag<br />

wheels.<br />

Advanced<br />

Advanced<br />

The Chrysler has the original factory<br />

engine, a 225 Slant 6. It is nicknamed “the<br />

leaning tower of power” because of its<br />

canted block with the cylinders laid over<br />

30 degrees to the right. The cruiser vibe<br />

persists with the old-school gearshift on<br />

the steering column and a three-on-thetree<br />

manual transmission.<br />

At a recent show, where he was showing<br />

the car, a couple approached Nick, and<br />

the woman started crying as they stood<br />

by the vehicle. It turned out that her<br />

family had first owned the Chrysler. The<br />

husband pointed out a telltale pin dent in<br />

the door frame, which had occurred when<br />

Service,<br />

Upholstery<br />

he dropped a spanner from his pocket,<br />

earning considerable displeasure from his<br />

father-in-law, who owned the new vehicle.<br />

The couple reminisced, and Nick happily<br />

photographed them in the car.<br />

Nick’s interest in cars goes back many<br />

years, competitively racing Speedway for<br />

21 years. However, after a race win and<br />

being in an accident earlier in the year,<br />

he decided his interest in racing was over.<br />

With an 11-month-old baby, Nick wanted<br />

an activity that could include everyone.<br />

It means enjoying the car as intended<br />

- cruising on Sundays, attending car<br />

shows, doing charity runs to support the<br />

community, and bringing smiles to kids.<br />

He follows in his family’s footsteps, who<br />

also enjoy car shows and cruises. Keep an<br />

eye out for this well-turned-out Chrysler<br />

with elegant lines!<br />

What do you do if your vehicle<br />

breaks down while driving?<br />

Winter driving can cause havoc with<br />

your car. It can be stressful if your vehicle<br />

breaks down and you get stuck on the<br />

side of the road. Here are some tips to<br />

help you stay safe and get assistance.<br />

If you hear an unusual noise while<br />

driving or notice your car is not working<br />

properly, indicate and steer your vehicle<br />

to a safe place off the road. Be aware<br />

of ditches and sizeable areas of deep<br />

mud, snow, or ice. Try to leave space for<br />

assistance vehicles to stop near you. Turn<br />

on your hazard lights and also the inside<br />

light if it’s dark outside. Use a safety<br />

triangle if you have one. If you can, exit<br />

through the passenger side and open<br />

your bonnet to signal other drivers for<br />

assistance. Avoid standing on the road<br />

and remain in the car if you need to wait<br />

for assistance. If you have a cell phone,<br />

call for assistance, or if it is safe, walk to<br />

find help.<br />

However, if you are driving on<br />

a motorway, there are other safety<br />

considerations. Because of the speed of<br />

traffic on a motorway, don’t stop your car<br />

suddenly if you experience an issue. Slow<br />

down and steer your vehicle as far left<br />

as possible. Ensure it is safe to get out of<br />

your car from the passenger side, open the<br />

bonnet and boot, and show you need help<br />

by lifting the bonnet and boot. Turn on<br />

your hazard lights and also inside lights at<br />

night, stay in your car, and wait for help.<br />

Call for a breakdown service, friends or<br />

family, *555, a garage, or towing service<br />

for assistance.<br />

Every car should carry a warning<br />

triangle, a high-vis vest, a torch with<br />

spare batteries, a first aid kit, and a warm<br />

blanket.<br />

Be prepared for unexpected breakdowns<br />

when driving, and know how to keep<br />

yourself and others safe.<br />

A spa retreat at home<br />

There are few experiences more relaxing<br />

that sitting in your own spa pool, with a<br />

beverage of choice, and staring up at the<br />

stars on a still, clear, Canterbury night.<br />

Stress relief, eased tension from sore<br />

muscles and the aches and pains of busy<br />

lives, quality time with loved ones and fun<br />

with the children, or just a few moments of<br />

quiet time alone. These and more are the<br />

benefits hot tub owners acknowledge.<br />

New technologies and innovations in<br />

design have made a wide variety of spa<br />

pools available to suit every home and<br />

landscape, and most budgets. Compact<br />

two to four person pools fit into tight<br />

corners, and much larger swim spas allow<br />

you to exercise – swim, walk, or jog –<br />

using powerful jets of water to keep you<br />

moving on the spot. They provide low<br />

impact workouts, plus all the therapeutic<br />

benefits of the smaller spas.<br />

In the age of personalised everything<br />

– smartphones, computers, cars, and<br />

space travel – spa pools, too, can be fully<br />

customisable. For example, you can now<br />

buy spas with interchangeable massage<br />

seats which you can personalise to best<br />

suit your needs.<br />

These days, many spas include integrated<br />

lighting displays, fountain and waterfall<br />

features, remote control, and wireless and<br />

Bluetooth technologies.<br />

When it comes to landscaping for a<br />

spa pool, imagination, and budget, are<br />

the only limitations. From a simple spa<br />

on the deck with perhaps a shade sail to<br />

a more elaborate design integrated into<br />

the entire yard with flat screen television<br />

to watch, it is advisable to get direction<br />

from an expert. Landscape professionals<br />

ask the questions you may not think to<br />

ask, and offer an experienced perspective.<br />

Some people want their spa to be part<br />

of an entertainment area, others want it<br />

close to the master bedroom. Landscaping<br />

depends on how you want to use your spa.<br />

Your guide to all things Real Estate<br />

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

Building with confidence<br />

Many people are excited about the<br />

opportunity to build in <strong>Selwyn</strong>. However,<br />

the building process can be stressful and<br />

daunting if it’s their first time. Matt from<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>’s Dark Horse Building provides<br />

advice to help people on their building<br />

journey.<br />

What advice would you give<br />

about building in <strong>Selwyn</strong> for the<br />

first time?<br />

Research a couple of different building<br />

companies first. Use builders who have<br />

already built in <strong>Selwyn</strong> and check out some<br />

of their completed builds to look at the<br />

quality and cost. Know your budget and<br />

consider what’s important for you to have<br />

in your house.<br />

How should you decide on a<br />

builder/company?<br />

• Do your due diligence on your<br />

prospective choice.<br />

• Check they have previous construction<br />

experience and inspect their past<br />

projects.<br />

• Do a company search to ensure they<br />

have a stable financial background<br />

and that their Licenced Building<br />

Practitioner (LBP) registration is<br />

current.<br />

• Some companies subcontract the<br />

labour and parts of a build; find out<br />

who will actually be building your<br />

house<br />

• Ask who they use as subcontractors for<br />

other trades (plumbing, electrical).<br />

• Ask how many people are in their<br />

business. Smaller companies may tailor<br />

a more flexible service but have longer<br />

lead times for starting. Larger firms<br />

may have better delivery timeframes<br />

but be less flexible.<br />

• Find out how much money and time<br />

is required upfront to determine a full<br />

fixed-price contract/quote on which<br />

you can base your decisions.<br />

Those companies that can provide more<br />

detail upfront, answer your questions well,<br />

mitigate any risks that may pop up, and<br />

give a good level of detail in their pricing<br />

should stand out.<br />

Different companies will be more suitable<br />

depending on what you want and how<br />

much input you want in the design of your<br />

house.<br />

What are clients’ common<br />

problems in a new build?<br />

• The client’s expectation versus<br />

delivery, as it’s hard to know what a<br />

room will look and feel like from a<br />

plan.<br />

• Getting everything they want for what<br />

they are prepared to spend.<br />

How can clients help the process<br />

go more smoothly?<br />

Give your builder as much information<br />

and detail as possible about what you<br />

LOOKING FOR DESIGN INSPIRATION?<br />

Visit one of our stunning showhomes to gather ideas for your dream home<br />

want your house to look like. The more<br />

detail you provide, the easier it is for the<br />

builder to meet your expectations or make<br />

adjustments together accordingly.<br />

A good builder helps their client<br />

understand and meet the rules for their<br />

location, such as setbacks, wind zone<br />

requirements, building heights, and what<br />

covenants apply to their section. They<br />

should deliver on time, meet your budget<br />

and expectations, and make the process<br />

enjoyable and something you’d want to do<br />

again.<br />
