Evacuation ignored by some „„ By Tom Doudney ABOUT 75 people were evacuated from the settlements of Rakaia Huts and Taumutu/Fisherman’s Point after a tsunami warning was issued – but about half chose to stay. The tsunami warning and evacuation order were issued at about 1am yesterday after a magnitude 7.5 earthquake near Hanmer Springs and a series of strong aftershocks. A civil defence emergency centre was established at Southbridge Hall, with up to 60 people present overnight. Rakaia Huts resident Pam Williamson was one of those evacuated to the hall after a call from a civil defence co-ordinator. “I called as many people as I could to let them know that evacuation was on the agenda and I would say about 50 per cent [of people] took advantage of going down to the Southbridge Hall,” Mrs Williamson said. She wasn’t frightened about the tsunami, more annoyed at having to leave her cosy bed and warm fire. “But it’s too late to leave when you see the wave coming isn’t it, you can’t outrun them.”

About half of residents had chosen to leave and half had stayed behind but the evacuation had been orderly and without panic. However, after returning home in the morning she had been surprised to come across two young men intent on taking a boat out into the water. Yesterday, authorities were still warning people to stay off beaches and out of the water due to the risk of unpredictable strong currents. “I said just consider yourself told that it’s not okay and left it at that,” Mrs Williamson said. “It was absolute stupidity but their call, I guess.” Mrs Williamson said she stayed at the Southbridge Hall between 1.30am and 7am when residents were told they could return home. People at the hall had been upbeat about the situation, she said. “I think everybody there felt they had made the right decision.” There were no reports of any significant damage in Selwyn to infrastructure, including roads, bridges and water supplies, as a result of the earthquake but crews were still inspecting the roading network.

HOW MUCH tar seal and how much time does it take to tidy up a relatively small stretch of road? Not much on either count, I would have thought. But if you live on the south side of West Belt in Lincoln it has taken years – and it could be many more to come – before the council gets around to doing anything about it, as we highlight on page 3 today. Residents on West Belt have every reason to be hacked off. It’s a bumpy ride getting into your driveway, and when it rains the potholes fill with water and get worse. Yet just down the road the council tar sealed and put in angled parking on West Belt when The Laboratory opened. Wouldn’t it have been commonsense to do the rest of the street? – Barry Clarke

In Brief

BUMPY RIDE: There are no plans to repair this unsealed stretch of West Belt until 2018 at the earliest.

Unsealed road irritates residents „„ By Tom Doudney UNSEALED ROADS and lack of maintenance has often been a complaint of rural residents but now a street in the heart of Selwyn’s second biggest town is causing frustration. A section of West Belt, in Lincoln, is unsealed on one side for roughly two thirds of its length, north of the Gerald St intersection – and it will remain so until 2018 at the earliest. The other third of the street was sealed about a year ago when construction of the Laboratory restaurant and bar was completed. Resident Junior Young said the unsealed shingle section had big

potholes all the way along. He has complained to the district council on two occasions over the last three years and was disappointed that it had not been sealed. “When you go out you’ve got to pick your spot so you don’t bounce in the humps and you get dust here all the time,” he said. “We’re the only road in Lincoln that has got shingle.” District council asset engineer transportation Mark Chamberlain said sealing the unsealed portion of the road would be considered as part of the estimated $36.6 million worth of roading and infrastructure upgrades associated with the

Lincoln Town Centre Plan. However, this work would not be until 2018 at the earliest, as it would be budgeted for in the 2018-2028 Long Term Plan. Mr Young said he had lived on the street for about eight years and had taken to filling up the potholes himself at times. He said the shingle edge of the road was often used by young people who lived in the area to pull handbrake slides and that sort of thing. Mr Chamberlain said there had been no funding allocated to seal the unsealed portion of the road up until this point, as other roading projects had been given higher priority and the district council had been aware that

ROLLESTON’S HEARING HEAR “I was in denial, pure and simple. My family were bringing it up more often with a gentle nudging to “do something about it.” My ability to hear accurately was impacting on my whole life and for what ever reason, I wasn’t convinced that hearing aids would make much difference.

roading requirements for the town were due to be considered as part of the Lincoln Town Centre Plan. However, maintenance work had been done, including filling in holes and repairing the edge of the seal. “This routine maintenance will continue,” he said. Mr Young said the maintenance the district council had done to date had only provided short term fixes after which the potholes had returned. HAVE YOUR SAY: Is the condition of West Belt acceptable? Send your views to tom.doudney@ starmedia.kiwi

DOMAIN FIELD CLOSED Two fields at Lincoln Domain have been fenced off until mid-January while a new $141,000 irrigation system is installed. The domain’s rear fields will remain open. The new system will enable more efficient watering by allowing it to occur at night throughout the year when there is less evaporation, and enable water to be better distributed. It will also reduce the cost and staff time involved with irrigation as the system will no longer need to be manually set. TRAFFIC COUNTING Selwyn residents may have noticed more traffic counts being carried out on the roads lately. The district council wants to record what traffic volumes were like prior to the construction of the Christchurch Southern Motorway extension. With construction under way, there will be a number of temporary detours that may change traffic volumes, making a busy road less busy and vice versa. Current traffic counts will be compared to traffic volumes after the motorway is completed. They will inform transportation models, which the district council uses to predict the location and amount of future growth.

I am not sure that I can do justice in describing Brenna’s approach. Brenna is infinitely professional, kind and understanding. Brenna instantly put me at ease with her friendly nature and lead me through an interview that really exposed my heart and motivation as to why I would want to rectify this increasing inability to participate more fully in my life! Brenna gave me time and patience. She fitted hearing aids and I was overcome by the how much more I could hear.

I am a parent, grandparent and teacher. Conversations were becoming increasingly difficult. I compensated and modified my interactions to cope but I was being robbed on personal enjoyment, on social occasions, family occasions, everyday life. We have had follow up appointments since and adjusted the aids. I know I have her support and Faye Leathwick AKA HearOine can call her with questions at the drop of a hat.

Your Local Views Shows continue to succeed

News

„„ By Amy Adams, Selwyn MP CANTERBURY’S muchloved Cup and Show Week has been and gone, but there are still a number of local shows on the calendar over the next few months, including the Courtenay A&P Show in Kirwee this coming weekend. It is great to see that these shows are continuing to attract so much support after being in existence for 140 or 150 plus years. I believe that the success of the shows is their ability to move with the times, for example, with innovations including a dedicated smartphone app to help visitors get the most out of the Canterbury Show. Meanwhile, local shows here in Selwyn have picked up on current themes such as MasterChef-style cook-offs and wearable arts competitions to inspire new generations to get involved. Importantly though the

Amy Adams

shows do remain true to their origins in focusing on our rural producers, whether that be crop and feed growers, sheep, cattle or dairy farmers, walnut orchardists or wine-makers. Our rural sector has certainly diversified over the past few decades, with a greater focus on artisan products and the growth of farmers’ markets, as many people have become more interested in finding out exactly where their food has come from. Recent shows that I have attended, including the Ellesmere Show, the Ashburton Show and the Canterbury Show, have all reflected this diversity well. The shows are an opportunity for rural communities large and small to get together and share ideas and results and connect with suppliers and customers alike. A&P shows take a lot of planning and organisation

Of course, A&P shows are not the only significant events happening around Selwyn at this time of the year. November 5 was a big day for the region with the hugelysuccessful Hororata Highland Games once again an entertaining day out for many. This was followed by an evening of

From church fairs to council-run events and everything in between, we are very lucky here in Selwyn to have such a range of opportunities to make community connections and family memories throughout the year.

Community committee Cup Week mates have a grouse time elections get under way Fashion IF YOU thought elections in Selwyn were over and done with – think again. Elections for Selwyn’s 63 community committees will take place between this month and February. The committees assist with running local facilities like community halls, swimming pools, reserves and local township or residents’ committees. The district council is appealing for people to consider joining a community committee and help shape local services. Mayor Sam Broughton (below) said community committees had an important role to play. “By joining a committee, you help make decisions about local facilities and services in your area and give advice to council to help us provide the right services for your area,” Mr Broughton said. “We really appreciate the voluntary work that committee members do and I would encourage people who use and

A GROUP of former Hutt Valley rugby teammates and good friends travelled from across New Zealand and Australia to stay at Lincoln’s Famous Grouse Hotel for Cup and Show Week. The group was keeping alive a tradition which started about 50 years ago as two separate annual trips by players from the Hutt Valley Marist and Petone rugby clubs. About 30 years ago they combined their trips into one and the Famous Grouse Hotel has hosted them for the last six years. Group members now come from as far apart as Australia, Auckland and the Kapiti Coast, as well as the Wellington area. Organiser Brian Tebbutt, of Upper Hutt, said he was one of about “five or six” original members of the travelling group who still made the trip. There were usually about 20 in the group each year, including several, like himself, aged in their 70s. Mr Tebbutt, who used to play rugby for Petone, said the group had often stayed at Christchurch’s Sandridge Motel in the past but decided to make The Famous Grouse their regular home away

from home when owners Craig and Bridget Bradford sold the former and bought the latter. “One of the highlights of the trip is the way that Bridget and Craig and the people at the [Famous Grouse] hotel look after us,” he said. Mr Tebbutt said this year’s trip had been fantastic, even if the bets they placed at Addington Raceway and Riccarton Park Racecourse had not been lucrative. “A few guys had a good collect but most of us left quite a bit of North Island money down there as we normally do,” he said. Mr Bradford said the group was fantastic. “They are just a brilliant bunch of guys and the nicest blokes you could ever run into,” he said. “The locals love them, even though they take over half the pub.”

background. Dad played guitar and he also was part of a duo in his early 20s and he had even recorded a few songs and made a couple of little records. I had wanted to sing for some time really but I didn’t probably have the confidence because I was doing sport and when you were crossing over into that arts thing, it always seemed like there were way more talented people than you. In my 20s I revisited it, auditioned for a few local bands and started playing in pubs and at weddings and corporate functions and that sort of thing and started writing and doing a little bit of recording. That took a bit of a backseat to cricket, though? Yeah, I was really involved in sport. I played indoor cricket over the winter for the New Zealand team, although I wasn’t in the outdoor team at that point. I was also playing hockey – I got to New Zealand under-21 level with hockey, I was a non-travelling reserve for the World Cup. Music was always something else I was interested in, but couldn’t afford a huge amount of time for.

Former New Zealand cricketer and Motukarara resident Katrina Keenan forms one half of musical duo Southfield, with Dave McKenzie. They’ll be one of the opening acts at the Selwyn Sounds concert in Lincoln in March. She spoke to Tom Doudney about famous cricketing school friends, developing the women’s game and what her other job at Selwyn Sounds will be.

How did you get into cricket when you were younger? I played cricket at primary school. I played cricket for the boys at Cotswold Primary School. My father Norm Withers was very passionate about cricket, so he was very involved and spent a lot of time with me. We probably practiced every night at the drive to be fair. Then I was sort of in a cricket circle or environment – I went to intermediate with Chris Cairns, and Andy Caddick, who went on to play for England, at high school. I used to train and practice with the boys teams and was lucky enough to get a lot of coaching opportunities at a really young age. I remember getting invited to a clinic with [former Australian cricketer] Dennis Lillee for pace bowlers. Dale Hadlee, Richard’s brother,

spent a lot of time with me when I was younger, he used to give up his time to take me for bowling sessions, so I was really lucky in that regard. When you were in primary and high school, did many other girls play cricket at that stage or were you one of the few? The schools that I was at had a girls’ cricket team. I just loved the game so much that I played in the girls’ team but also trained and practiced with the boys. Were you training and practicing with the boys because you were so good? I had a reasonably high skill level I guess. The guys were certainly happy for me to be there and I think that was quite significant in terms of me developing better skills. Did Chris Cairns and Andy Caddick strike you as

between work, sport and art

Views Your Local Views What would you say the highlight of your cricketing career was? Playing in the World Cup and winning that in 2000 will always stand out as a key moment because we all worked so hard. We were training twice a day as non-professional athletes and we didn’t even question that. It wasn’t about the money or anything else, it was about just being the best that we could be. You were mainly an opening bowler weren’t you? I was an all-rounder, there was certainly a season where I did experiment opening the batting for New Zealand, but I guess you would best describe me as a strike bowler. I would open the bowling for New Zealand and bat in the middle to lower order. Did you like to get the batters rattled when you were bowling? Definitely, I’m a real competitor, so absolutely, but it was always more about a plan of how to get the batsman out so the intimidation factor was not really my focus. How do you feel about the attention and opportunities the men’s game gets compared with

News

the women’s game? In terms of the profile of the game, I would definitely like to see the game moving forward in that area and more opportunities for women in cricket and the game internationally. I think a real infrastructure and pathway around the women’s game is lacking and I think if that is developed, we will get more girls playing, more people involved in the game and a better standard of cricket and more attractive game to profile on television. Your husband Grant Keenan is assistant coach of the Black Ferns, so you’re a pretty sporting family obviously. Are your daughters (Emily, 12, and Macy, 10) very active in sport? Yes, they are very active in sport. They are doing jump jam, netball, athletics, but where as I can almost remember deciding at seven or eight that I wanted to play cricket for New Zealand, their focus is more around participation and enjoying that time with their friends. When did you start your food cart business (Rock Dogs)? About six months ago. I’m going to be at a few events coming

Any other work you’ve been doing? Yeah, the last few years I have been a sports co-ordinator for Sport Canterbury, delivering fundamental sports skills at five schools – Lincoln, Prebbleton, Tai Tapu, Ladbrooks and Burnham. Sometimes I would deliver

seven or eight classes a day, but I would always try and ensure that every single child had some level of feedback whether it was ‘great catch’ or ‘I like the way you did that.’ That was really important to me because there are a lot of kids that don’t enjoy sport so my goal was always to make sure that everyone had a positive experience and I’m pretty sure I achieved that. Are you looking forward to playing with some of those wellknown musicians at Selwyn Sounds? Oh yeah, I hope I get the opportunity to meet them, especially some of the female performers like Sharon O’Neill, Margaret Urlich and Debbie Harwood.

Four Square supermarket comes to West Melton MORE THAN 150 years after West Melton was founded, its first modern supermarket was opened on Tuesday last week. Four Square West Melton was officially opened by Mayor Sam Broughton. Construction began in February as part of the shopping centre development on Weedons Ross Rd, opposite West Melton School. Owners Brent and Leah Little said the opening was a historic day for both the town and Four Square. “I have fond memories of visiting the Four Square in Hokitika when I was a boy,” Mr Little said. “West Melton, meanwhile, got its first grocery store in 1872, eight years after the town was founded, before the store was moved into the old blacksmith’s shop in 1937. “I’m proud to bring 21st century shopping to West Melton – with no horseshoes but plenty of car parks.” Out of 20 staff at the supermarket, 16 have been

employed from West Melton and the surrounding area. “We’ve assembled a fantastic team who are raring to go,” Mr Little said. “They know community expectations are high but I’m confident we’ll exceed them next week and well into the future.” West Melton Residents’ Association chairman Jeff Waters said it was good to have the supermarket open. “It’s great it has finally come about,” Mr Waters said. Mrs Little said the supermarket’s modern features included the latest

in customer-focused layout and design, energy-efficient lighting and ozonefriendly refrigeration. The supermarket has about 800 sq m of retail floor space. Mr Little’s own retailing history goes back 22 years since he left school. He has worked for New World and Pak ’n’ Save and done everything from packing bags to slicing ham. “Experience is key to running supermarkets, and I’m looking forward to applying mine to our new store and getting to know the people of West Melton and the surrounding areas,” he said.

Fire training exercise planned for Darfield DARFIELD residents shouldn’t be alarmed if they see fire trucks flocking to the township later this month. McHughs Forest Park will host a range of emergency response personnel on Wednesday next week as the district council prepares for the possibility of a major fire this summer. McHughs Forest Park is located about 1km west of Darfield. Rural fire brigades from across the district, New Zealand Fire Service personnel, district council emergency response teams and welfare and emergency management staff will take part in the training evening, which will start at about 7pm. The training, named Exercise Homebush, will focus on the command and control of a largescale fire incident and communications system at the event. District council emergency management officer Ryan O’Rourke said the training was happening because experience showed the district council tended to have at least one major fire per season. “We need to ensure we’re performing to a high level because

Awards head West Melton’s way

SPORTS

IT HAS been a busy few weeks for West Melton School, especially in the sporting realm. The school’s Westie Wonders jump jam team came first in the South Island regional competition in Christchurch. The team also received awards for merit in presentation and merit in execution and the judges were impressed with their enthu-

siasm and performance. The school also recently held its athletics day and sent 49 students to the Lincoln Zone Athletics, held at Brookside Park, Rolleston. West Melton will be sending nine students to the Canterbury Primary Schools Athletics Championships in Ashburton in December.

Outside of sports, the school has also been awarded a gold award in recognition of the development and implementation of environmentally sustainable business practices as part of the Malvern Responsible Business Awards. Teacher and enviroschools leader Liz Coster accepted the award.

Hororata’s top scouts earn numerous awards „„ By Tom Doudney BEFORE LAST month no member of the Hororata Scout Group had ever earned the Queen’s Scout Award or a gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Hillary Award. Now one of its venturer scouts, Brogan Baldwin, 17, has achieved both. She was presented with both awards, the highest a youth scouting member can earn, by Governor General Dame Patsy Reddy last month, and was recognised again at a recent ceremony at the Hororata Scout Den. The honours come two years after she became the group’s first ever female chief scout. To earn the awards, Brogan completed a range of tasks and challenges over 12 months, including travelling to Borneo where she was part of a group which helped build and raise funds for a basketball court at a local village; and helping to run a Scouts New Zealand leaders’ forum. Brogan was one of six from the Hororata Scout Group to be recognised at the ceremony. Hanako Wilson, James Grafton and Thomas Grafton

It is a totally unique colour and we know the children are going to love it and wear it with pride.” Located in the Farringdon subdivision, the formation of the new school has involved a huge effort by the EBoT which has worked closely with Stephenson and Turner Architects, Southbase Construction and the Ministry of Education. Set to open on January 30, 2017, the school will cater for up to 450 students in years 1 to 8 with a stage two plan in place to increase this number to 750.

TUESDAY NOVEMBER 15 2016

Meet your Councillor – Debra Hasson Debra is one of three Councillors in the Springs ward, which covers Lincoln, Prebbleton, Springston, Tai Tapu and surrounding areas. She can be contacted via phone on 027 435 5055 or by emailing debra.hasson@selwyn.govt.nz. What do you hope to achieve while on the Council? More recognition that environmental responsibility is a cost that Council will have to absorb in its rates. I would like to investigate district wide rating opportunities where environmental improvements benefit all, but apply the "polluter pays principle" to targeted groups. This principle is in place for community water consumption but needs to be extended to water races and landdrainage and in this case concentric rating may be the answer?

Road resealing

underway for summer Council’s road maintenance contractor (HEB Construction Ltd) has begun resealing work on the district’s roads. Resealing is undertaken during the warmer, drier weather conditions of the spring, summer and early autumn. A list of road sections being resealed in 2016/17 is available on the Council’s website, www.selwyn.govt.nz. Resealing work will be undertaken on 99 different sections of road with a total length of around 85 kilometres.

What do you like about the area you represent? Our urban and rural environment mix and the knowledge base from our research facilities, many who are volunteers enhancing environmental understanding in our community. Urban residents live in close proximity to the rural environment, while still being within commuting distance to Christchurch City. How would you describe yourself? Adventurous but diligent in my thinking; not afraid to ask the "hard questions." I tend to be a person of principle.

Future options for Springston Hall

Approximately 5.5 kilometres of road rehabilitation work will also be undertaken over the spring and summer. Three sections of road have been confirmed where this work will take place: Deans Road (between Auchenflower Road and the Hawkins River), Bealey Road (west of the Waianiwaniwa River) and Gerald Street (between Vernon Drive and Springs Road). The sections on Deans Road and Bealey Road will have a granular overlay of the existing seal. The section on Gerald Street will have the kerb and dish channel replaced, the old road pavement excavated, the subgrade strengthened and a new road pavement constructed.

Springston residents are being asked to share their views on options for the future of their town hall and community centre.

Since 2014, the Council has increased its roading maintenance budget to carry out more resealing and road rehabilitation work as our roads become busier and carry more heavy vehicles.

The Hall Committee is working with the Council to plan for the future. A number of options have been developed, ranging from no upgrading through to retaining and strengthening the main hall, or removing and replacing it with a new facility.

Explore Selwyn: Rakaia Gorge Walk This DOC track offers spectacular views of the gorge and can be completed in a morning or afternoon. The track winds through several forest and shrub areas before climbing the historic ferryman’s track. After an hour’s walking you will reach one of several glacial and river-carved terraces providing sweeping views with a breath taking backdrop of Mt Hutt. The walk then dips down into a gully where the abandoned Snowdon coal mines can be seen. The track is often steep and has some big steps and rough terrain so it is not suitable for buggies or wheelchairs. It travels through farmland where dogs are not allowed. It begins at the Rakaia Gorge Bridge and follows the river for about 5km before turning around and returning along the same route.

Time/Distance: 3-4 hours, about 10km total distance. Difficulty: Medium How to get there: Take state Highway 72 Inland Scenic Route. The walk begins by the car park at the gorge bridge. It’s a 45 minute drive from Rolleston.

The Springston Community Centre suffered damage in the 201011 earthquakes and although it has been repaired and remained in use by community groups, it will require significant upgrading and strengthening to meet building code requirements in the future.

Two drop-in sessions are being held this week so that local residents and facility users can find out more about the options and give their feedback. Council staff will be there to discuss the project, including the current status of the hall and buildings, work needed to bring the facilities up to standard, costs of the different options and how these might affect rates. You can find out more and share your views at www.selwyn.govt.nz/haveyoursay. The drop-in sessions will held at Springston Community Centre on: · Friday 18 November from 5 – 7pm, and · Saturday 19 November from 1pm – 3pm.

Sport travel fund open Sport New Zealand Rural Travel Funding is available for Selwyn sport teams who need to travel to local competition games and have members aged 5-19 years. School competitions in school time are not eligible. This funding round is for summer sports only. For information and application forms contact Stuart on 347 2708 or email stuart.westoby@selwyn.govt.nz. Applications close Friday 25 November.

Road repairs will take place on Hoskyns Road. Road reconstruction work continues on Deans Road. Traffic controls are operating at both sites, with the roads remaining open. Edgebreak repair work is planned for Newtons and Weedons Ross Roads, which remain open to traffic. Footpath repairs will occur on Petticoat Lane and Greenan Place in Doyleston. Maintenance grading will occur in the high country, Brookside, Burnham and Rolleston areas.

Test your sense of adventure at Whether it is mountain biking, walking, thrill seeking or coffee, Christchurch Adventure Park aims to offer something for everyone. Bridget Rutherford reports FIVE YEARS ago, Canadian leisure developer Select Evolution was keen to build a new adventure park. It searched the United Kingdom, Europe, and even Queenstown and Auckland, to no avail. But in 2011, Christchurch mountain biker Tim Prebble was sitting on a chairlift next to a woman at Whistler Blackcomb – a mountain bike park in British Columbia. The woman was working at the park as a coach. But not only did she work there, she was one of the brains behind it – Select Evolution chairwoman Fiona Sutton. Mr Prebble suggested Select should develop a similar adventure park in Christchurch, but she told him there was nowhere suitable. But Mr Prebble knew just the

and zip lines. Within three months Ms Sutton visited the site. “One thing led to another,” Select Evolution programme developer Darron Charity said. But fate and a bit of luck weren’t the only things that brought the development to

Christchurch. “It took a hell of a lot of hard work to get it across the line,” he said. When phase one of the Christchurch Adventure Park is completed in December it will be the largest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.

To date it has cost $25 million. The Government and city council’s Development Christchurch each contributed $2 million, while the remaining funding had come from a bank loan, New Urban Group, and investment from the United States, Singapore and New Zealand.

new Port Hills leisure park “We’ll have to go to market to secure funding for the next phase,” Mr Charity said. He said the developers, manufacturers and contractors had crammed 20 months of work into eight, just to get the park open as a Christmas present for Christchurch. There could be up to 150 contractors on site each day, while there were another 100 people working on it off site, he said. Construction began in April, and already the early bird season pass tickets have sold out. More tickets aimed at casual users and families will be released this month. What’s more is the park is on schedule and on budget, he said. “We set a budget four years ago and we’re still delivering on it. It’s extremely tight.” The majority of the new tracks had been carved – some with diggers, but the more technical ones have been built by hand, with the help of volunteers armed with shovels and rakes. Each jump has been designed by engineers. The 8km green track has a gradient of about 3-4 per cent, while the 5km blue track is about 5-6 per cent.

FITS IN: The cafe and bar is being built by Amalgamated Builders out of douglas fir – the same timber as the trees that surrounds it.

The hardest – the 5km black track – is where the jumps are introduced and is for more experienced riders. Riders from the age of seven can have a go at mountain biking at the park, and a track will be installed for under five-year-olds next to the cafe. Mr Charity said the park would get more people outdoors and into the sport. There would be 16 coaches at the park, and mountain bikes and safety equipment could be hired, he said. “This is a sport progression park.” But it’s not just for mountain

and downhill biking. There is also a walking track, you could enjoy a coffee or a drink at the cafe and bar, not to mention the activities for thrill seekers. Four dual zip lines have been installed in different parts of the park – with one being 180m off the ground. At 1.8km, the electric-powered chairlift will be the largest in New Zealand, with the ability to hold 56 chairs at any one time. At the top, it will be 450m high. Its control room arrives in the next few weeks. People will be able to ride the chairlift to get to the top of the

park, where they can either use the tracks to come down, head up to the Summit Rd, or ride the zip lines down. Four people could fit in each chair, with a stand for them to park their bikes in. The chairlift is custom-built to the land. Mr Charity said the douglas fir trees below the chairlift had to be cut down before a drone was used to take footage of the route. It was then sent over to Austrian manufacturer Doppelmayr which built the towers, before shipping them to Lyttelton, he said. Mr Charity said contractors

spent three months doing concrete work in preparation for the tower installation, which took a month. At the entrance to the park, three douglas fir timber buildings sit amongst the forestry, housing the ticketing reception, the hire facilities and a cafe and bar, which could seat up to 180 people. Mr Charity said the cafe and bar would stock local produce, and drinks, including Cassels and Sons Brewery beer and wine from Black Estate, Waipara. “It has to feel like Christchurch.” •Turn to page 23

Adventure park set to open next month •From page 21 There will eventually be 235 car parks, and the entire park will be smoke-free. Mr Charity said phase two would see the construction of a 1.5km mountain coaster, a luge on a track which would travel up to 80km/h. The New York designers visited recently to plan it. That is expected to be completed by December, 2017. The village is also part of phase two, which eventually would have 282 beds. Mr Charity said they hoped to host school camps, and could teach students about the forest and ecology, along with groups wanting to do team-building exercises. The benefit the park would have on the city’s economy was a huge driver for the project, he said. “We’ve always seen this as a major boost for New Zealand tourism. It attracts the overnight stay in Christchurch,” he said. It is expected to bring another 30,000 bed-nights to Christchurch, he said. The park would also employ between 100 and 120 staff, most of them local.

BIG JOB: Construction of Christchurch Adventure Park began in April, after about four years of planning. PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN

In the future, they hoped to bring international mountain and downhill races to Christchurch. Mayor Lianne Dalziel said the project would set Christchurch

apart as a great place to visit, and live. “It really fits the city’s image in terms of sport and recreation from mountain to sea.” She said it needed an extraordi-

nary commitment to deliver the project in a short space, however it had been four years of trying to pull it together. “Fiona told me that when she felt they weren’t getting the

investment, she’d go and sit at the site and say it has to happen and now it’s a reality.” Downhill mountain biker Lachlan Cruickshank said the park was one of the reasons he moved to Christchurch, and he had already snapped up a season pass. “It is going to be one of the best bike parks in the Southern Hemisphere and could develop Christchurch into a real mecca of the sport going forward.” Mr Charity said Select Evolution had a 50-year lease for the land, and it hoped to continue to develop more of it. “There’s at least 120km of track that we can develop in here. There’s so much scope.” He said it was a “legacy project” and as a cyclist himself, was looking forward to riding it rather than working on it. “I didn’t expect to be working 100-hour weeks. But to see the park come to life is always a dream. It’s exceeded my expectations in what it’s become.” • Christchurch Adventure Park will have its official opening on December 16. It will be open from 10am-8pm in summer, and 10am-5pm in winter.

Ruapuna revs up this weekend THE BUILD-UP for this summer’s New Zealand Sprintcar Championship begins in earnest at Ruapuna on Saturday night. The Racecourse Hotel and Motor Lodge Ruapuna Speedway hosts the first round of the $60,000 War of the Wings series, with 25 drivers set to enter the event. Drivers will qualify in two lap-time trials and take part in heat races before 18 cars face the starter in the 25-lap feature race. A number of drivers will be using this weekend’s race as a springboard to the nationals, which will be held at Ruapuna in January. Hornby racer Jamie Duff is likely to carry the favourite tag into Saturday night’s event after a commanding win in the King of the Clay event at Ruapuna earlier this month. Duff has not contested the entire War of the Wings series for several years, preferring to contract and race at Western Springs in Auckland. However, Duff Motorsport has moved its allegiance back to the mainland and the War of the Wings is a priority. There will be a lot of interest in the showing of four former Woodford Glen competitors who have all changed classes to participate in the series.

READY TO GO: About 25 sprintcars will line up for the War of the Wings series at Ruapuna.

Former superstock racer Jason Smith is now in his second season of racing sprintcars and he has shown plenty of pace in early season events and can now see some familiar faces with Martin Harcourt (super saloons), Jackson Lovelady (saloons) and Luke Keegan (modifieds) having come across town for the summer. Keegan, a three-time winner of the national modified crown, has looked particularly sharp in early season races, campaigning in a Maxim, imported from the

United States by the Boulton Racing Team. One seasoned campaigner who is relishing the influx of drivers to the class is veteran Ray Baughan, a long-time stalwart of the sprintcar section at Ruapuna. Last summer, Baughan shared the overall War of the Wings title with Ashburton’s Matt Honeywell and Australian Allan Woods, and he is very determined not to have to share the honours this summer.

HALSWELL HAS come back from two consecutive losses to beat previous one-day cricket table leader Heathcote at Halswell Domain. Heathcote won the toss and put Halswell in to bat first on Saturday. Geoff Barclay hit a brisk 36 and was well-supported by his captain Leighton Johnston (28), but the loss of these two wickets saw a collapse for Halswell. Matt Parr scored a wellcompiled 47, but Halswell were dismissed for 149 on a very good batting deck. Halswell bowled a great line and length and took early Heathcote wickets to have them in all sorts of trouble at 32/5 before rolling them for 54. Parr took 2-12 from his four overs, Barclay took 3-13 from six overs, Mike Chatterton took 3-12 from seven overs and Johnston took 2-10 from nine overs.

Gardening

Get eggplant in the ground for February harvest „„ By Tod Palenski WHAT’S NOT to love about having eggplant in your garden? The fruit of this tropical perennial is a perfect addition to vege stews, an essential ingredient in Mediterranean moussaka and French ratatouille, and great simply sliced, sprinkled with salt and barbecued. Look in your vegetable garden for a well-drained and sunny position to grow your eggplant, otherwise known as aubergine. If you planted capsicum and cucumbers recently like I recommended, try popping your eggplant seedlings next to them. They’re good companion plants, as they all like the same conditions. They also like to hang their fruit, so grow well planted in a pot or raised garden bed. Grab some seedlings and simply plant around 20cm apart. If you don’t have a suitable raised bed or tub, add some straw or newspaper around the base of the plants to stop the fruit from sitting on damp soil and rotting. To help your seedlings establish well,

making mini glasshouses out of old milk bottles. Cut the bottom off a recycled and clean milk bottle. Put the top over the plant but remove the lid to allow for a bit of wind circulation. Once they get growing you can remove the milk bottles. The key with eggplants is not over watering. They like it quite dry and sunny and will rot if they get too much water. If you do water them, make sure you avoid overhead watering. In around February, your fruit should be ready to harvest. For a tasty addition to your late summer barbecues, simply slice the fruit into about six to eight pieces (around 1cm thick each), brush with olive oil on both sides and barbecue. Once cooked, add some rock salt for taste and serve as a side. Lastly, although eggplant is technically a perennial (a plant that dies down and pops up again for many growing seasons), in New Zealand it tends to behave like an annual because of our temperate climate, which means once you’ve harvested all your fruit simply remove the plants and replant next year.

GOOD COMPANIONS: The key to growing eggplant is not over watering.

Don’t let the rain stop you from gardening EVEN THOUGH it has been a wet start to the summer months there are plenty of tasks to do in the garden. All summer vegetables should now have been planted. This includes; beans, beetroot, cabbage, celery, corn, cucumber, lettuce, courgettes, spring onions, peas, pumpkin, radish, spinach, tomatoes, silverbeet and kumara. Make sure your developing vegetables are well watered – without over watering them. Continue to ‘lateral’ (nip out shoots that appear between the junction of a leaf and the stem) tomatoes and tie them to stakes for support. Keep staggering your vegetable plantings for continuous cropping over the season. New season herbs should also be planted by mid-November. It’s now safe to plant herbs like basil and coriander as the chance of frosts is minimal. Remember herbs grow best in a fine, well-drained soil in full sun. They struggle in heavy clay soil and in shady parts of the garden. Often the best month for roses, full, clean blooms are growing on healthy plants. Side dress with fertiliser every 4-6

weeks. Dead head regularly to aid continuous blooming. For hedges, aim to trim them ‘a little and often’– they are best trimmed after a flush of new seasons growth. Water and fertilise plants regularly to help achieve a strong dense hedge. This is especially important with newly planted hedges. Mulching is incredibly important over the summer months to keep your garden healthy. The best mulch is a form of organic matter that is applied as a layer on top of your soil in your garden, around plants, trees, and especially in your pots, to help protect them against the elements and retain moisture. Timing the application of mulch is very important and it’s better to wait until soil temperatures have risen. In the colder areas of New Zealand; such as parts of the South Island, apply mulch in mid-late November. In warmer regions, mulch can be applied from late October/early November. This is the last month to sow or patch large parts of your existing lawn before it becomes too dry. For a lush green lawn, fertilise regularly with fertiliser and water it in well.

LAYERING: Timing the application of mulch is important.

e in the garden at the moment. There are plenty of things to get don busy this month. Here are a couple of tasks to keep you Feeding, mulching and watering azaleas, Camellias and rhododendrons Apply 100 grams per square metre of fertiliser 3 times per year. Early spring, immediately after flowering and then again in autumn. Apply around the dripline (where the outer leaves lie) of the plant and be sure not to let the fertiliser touch the base of the plant. Water well after application, and continue with a regular watering pattern, giving the plant a deep watering rather than a light sprinkle. Add organic compost in late winter and then again in January. Keep a ring around the base of the plant free from mulch. Look after those lemons! To ensure you have enough juicy lemons, keep the water up to your plants while they are in flower now. Dry lemons are directly related to lack of water as the crop develops over summer. A layer of mulch works wonders, apply mulch after watering the soil. Weed war Get rid of those pesky weeds! Not only do they look unsightly, they take up a lot of nutrients and water that your plants need, as well as fight for space. Dedicate time to remove them as soon as they pop up, then the task won’t seem so daunting if you walk out one day and all you see is weeds! Once you have removed them all, add some Organic Compost and mix through the soil. This will replenish the organic matter in the soil, and create a better environment for your plants.

Field day to feature speaker from Oregon The Foundation for Arable Research (FAR) is holding its major field day, CROPS 2016, on Wednesday, December 7, 2016 at the FAR arable site in Chertsey. As usual it will feature a dozen speakers covering a range of subjects relevant to cropping in Canterbury. Gates will open at 9am, and the event will end with a dinner after the last talks finish at 5.30pm. This year’s international guest speaker is Nicole Anderson from Oregon State University, who will discuss issues around seed production in Oregon, drawing links with the New Zealand industry. Other speakers will cover topics ranging from pollination options to precision agriculture in potatoes. Sponsors always play a key role at CROPS and this year seven companies are taking up the option of Platinum Sponsorship demonstration plots. They are Adama, Ballance Agri-Nutrients, BASF, Bayer Crop Science, Dow AgriSciences,

PGG Wrightsons and Syngenta. Other sponsors with material on show are AgriOptics, Environment Canterbury, Farmers Mutual Group, Horticentre, Irrigation NZ, NZ Seedlab, PowerFarming, PMR Grain Systems, Precision Farming, Rainer Irrigation and Ravensdown. As in previous years, each of the 12 talks will be repeated morning and afternoon, lunch will be provided and there will be a dinner at the end of the day. Since its inception in 2002, CROPS has developed into FAR’s key field event and a ‘must-do’ for cropping farmers and industry personnel. Over 600 people attended CROPS in 2014, making it New Zealand’s largest one-day agricultural extension field event.

Gates will open at 9am, Wednesday, December 7, 2016, and the event will end with a dinner after the last talks finish at 5.30pm.

Entries invited for competition to find NZ’s tastiest lamb The search for the nation’s top-tasting lamb is in full swing with entries open for the special 10th anniversary Beef + Lamb New Zealand Glammies competition. The competition aims to find the tastiest and most tender lamb in New Zealand and this year the Producer of the Decade will also be determined following the 2017 results. Farmers and retailers nationwide are invited to enter their lamb into the Glammies with the meat to be scientifically assessed by Carne Technologies in Cambridge for tenderness, yield, succulence and colour. From here, the top four entries from five categories will make it through to the final stage of the competition, a taste test, held at the Wanaka A&P show on March 10. Beef + Lamb New Zealand CEO Sam Mclvor says the competition is a keenly anticipated event for New Zealand farmers and a way for them to display their worldclass produce. “The competition is a chance to celebrate top-quality lamb and the New Zealand farmers who produce it. We all know it’s a Kiwi favourite and our lamb is also preferred by consumers around the world,” Mr McIvor says. Robert Gardyne from Oturehua has had

huge success since receiving the 2016 Grand Champion award. “Last year I won the competition with a high-country lamb, which was the first year this has happened and goes to show the vast range of quality products us farmers produce. “Furthermore, this competition has helped me tell my story and promote something that means so much to me and other New Zealand farmers,” Mr Gardyne says. The five competition categories include Best of Breed - Traditional, Best of Breed Crossbreed, Best of Breed - Terminal Cross, Best of Breed - Open, and Retail. The competition is sponsored by Zoetis and supported by Alliance Group, ANZCO Foods Canterbury, Ashburton Meat Processors, Auckland Meat Processors/ Wilson Hellaby, Blue Sky Meats, Cabernet Foods/Kintyre Meats, Harris Meats, Oamaru Meats, Progressive Meats, Silver Fern Farms and Taylor Preston. Farmer competition entries close on December 2, 2016 with the Retailer competition entries closing on January 13, 2017. For more information and the entry form, visit beeflambnz.co.nz

New Hope For Long Term Back Pain Sufferers

After more than eight years in New Zealand, Teeter Hang-Ups have now gained a reputation for success with long-term sufferers of Back pain. Inversion New Zealand was started eight years ago by Dave and Nancy Hare, Dave had suffered over twenty years of back pain from Degenerated Discs and had basically given up and decided to just live with it. “To me surgery was never an option” he said “as long as I still could walk, there was hope”.

was something I had never heard of sorting it out for me in a very short period of time” It was then Dave decided to introduce Teeter into New Zealand and Inversion NZ was born.

Dave had tried everything; every time he was overseas he would search for anything that could possibly help. While on one of these overseas trips eight years ago, Dave discovered the Teeter Hang-Ups. “The first time I tried it, the pain disappeared and I was completely pain free for about 30 minutes, nothing had done that” he told me. Dave never believed it would fix him, “as specialists had told me it was irreversible, I now knew I had a place to go every time I wanted some serious relief”.

“We have testimonials from people with over fifty years of back problems and even have them in a number of schools in New Zealand for their special needs children” he told me, “the blood to the brain helps these kids and the results are excellent” What this means for the aging population is that it helps maintain the health of the brain as we all get older.

To Dave’s surprise the more he used the table the longer the pain stayed away, until after nearly three months he was completely pain free, “I couldn’t believe it’ he told me “I had spent large amounts of money on every form of treatment available and here

TESTIMONIAL

Over the years INZ have helped thousands of people get some serious relief and have seen results in not only backs, but necks, hips, knees, posture, circulation, increased height, blood pressure and lots more.

DEAR DAVE AND NANCY

In 2008 I had been living with a serious lower back pain for many years due to two discs with serious degeneration and was scheduled for a double spinal fusion at a cost of $48,000. The Specialist had recommended many lifestyle changes including changing my profession, which was not practical as I own my own business.

Dave told me that he realised that, had he not tried the Teeter for himself he would still be suffering, “I would still be a miserable grumpy bugger, living with pain, that is why we do the shows, people need to try it for themselves” he told me “most people actually get off with the pain either gone or considerably less” he said “we let the tables do the Frank Harwood (84) of Turangi using his Teeter, Frank has been talking” Inverting for over eight years and has found it keeps him young

IT IS PURE LOGIC AS TO HOW THE TEETER TABLE WORKS

Discs: It

uses gravity to apply traction, the traction gently opens the discs and as they open up they create suction, this suction draws fluid from the surrounding tissue back into the discs, re-hydrating them. This is the key! Discs do not have their own blood supply, they rely on transfer of fluid from the surrounding tissue to keep them healthy and hydrated and over the years as discs get thinner with age, they lose the ability to take on fluid (just like squeezing a sponge) and they start to de-hydrate. De-Hydrated discs are less flexible, they are harder, more prone to injury, they interfere with nerve roots creating pain and ultimately the de-hydration causes degeneration. The Teeter Inversion table slowly and gently brings the hydration back into the discs, plumping them up. This brings back lost height (most people will regain around 2 CM of height), it separates the nerve roots far more effectively and returns quality of life

Muscles: A lot of pain is muscular, when muscles are stressed they become tight which restricts the flow of blood and lymph through the muscles so toxins build up, Co2 and Lactic Acid. Traction opens up the muscles, Rhythmic Traction, is a gentle rocking motion that stimulates circulation and encourages blood flow through the muscles, which clears the lactic acid into your lymph system where it stimulates lymph flow and deals with it. Most people with serious neck issues see a large improvement after only one treatment.

Ashburton

Come along to our expo in Timaru, or come to our expo in Christchurch next weekend. (See below for details). If you have completely resigned yourself to having back or neck pain for the rest of your life, then chances are you will be pleasantly surprised.

Walnut Ave Pavillion Opposite Ashburton College 5th & 6th November 10am to 4pm

Posture: Poor

posture is one of the major cases of pain and is a major contributor to the deterioration of the body with age. A difference in leg length causes most of the hip and knee issues, as they continue to place uneven loads on the joints; similar to the wheels out of alignment on your car. Trying to correct posture is extremely difficult due to muscle memory, as it constantly pulls the muscles back to where they were. At a level of 40 degrees or more on the Teeter, the muscle groups open up and eventually come back into alignment, using the table daily, does not allow the muscle memory to pull them back out of alignment and slowly the muscles start to lose their memory and go with the flow, allowing the body to come back into correct posture. Then using the table once a day will ensure it is kept there. This is pure logic, if a machine is out of alignment it does not last long, the only difference between the body and a machine is that the body is constantly repairing itself, however if the wear and tear on the body is greater than the body’s ability to repair itself, it is a slow decline. The Teeter slowly brings the body out of its decline and allows the body to repair itself, resulting in a far healthier life.

If you are serious about investing in your health and really sorting your issues out, come see us at one of our local roadshows, you have nothing to lose and chances are, a lot to gain.

BACK

or

At the Waikato Home Show I experienced a demonstration on a Teeter Inversion Table by Dave and Nancy Hare. To me the effect was amazing, I actually experienced some serious relief which lasted for an hour or two, I was told that the relief would last longer with time as long as I used the table regularly, so with the surgery scheduled for 12 weeks time, having nothing to lose and a lot to gain I purchased a Teeter. Four years on I still use my table on a daily basis, my back is as strong as ever with very little or completely no pain, I am still at my same profession and working as hard as ever and most importantly I did not have the surgery. I consider the purchase of my Teeter has been one of my greatest investments, not only has it enabled me to avoid serious and costly surgery, it has kept me in my profession and it has brought my health back. Thank you very much for the opportunity. Very best regards Paul Gordon Cambridge

NECK PAIN?

Come along for a free treatment Here in New Zealand, Dr Giresh Kanji, one of the countries most respected Pain Specialists completed a PhD on how humans experience pain and then researched lower back pain, writing "Fix Your Back" and then spent a few years researching neck pain, headache and migraine and wrote "Fix Your Neck Pain, Headache & Migraine", both books are in most bookstores. Dr Kanji discovered in his research that the disc is the most likely source of low back pain and Inversion showed the best results of all the trials conducted. Three studies showed a 60% reduction in pain and one showed a 75% reduction in surgery for people with disc prolapse.

Inversion helps to: • Relieve Back Pain • Relieve Neck Pain • Relieve Muscle Tension • Stimulate Blood And Lymph Flow • Improve Posture • Increase Flexability • Reduce The Effects Of Ageing Caused By Gravity

Dr Kanji has personally been using the Teeter Inversion tables for his own low back pain, has Teeter Inversion tables at both of his clinics in Wellington (The Sports and Pain Clinic) and has had such success that he is now conducting the largest study in the World on Inversion Therapy. In his own words, "these things are gold and inversion should be a first line treatment for low back pain”.

Wright Spa Hornby Superstore Spa pool specialists now open in Hornby One of the city’s most well-known businesses, Wright Spa Pools of Ferrymead, has just opened a new branch in Hornby. Located at 20 Carmen Road, the premises formerly occupied by Hampton Motor Cycles is conveniently close to their client base, co-owner Matt Lowe says. “We service the mid-Canterbury area, and with the growth of the Lincoln, Rolleston and Selwyn areas, we saw this site as ideal for the expansion of our business.” The premises are almost three times the size of the family-owned business’ Ferry Road site, where they were running out of space, and are “as close as they could get to a purpose-built site”. Established in 1978, and trading on Ferry Road since 1991, Wright Spa Pools specialises in the world’s number one selling spa pools, the US-manufactured Hot Spring spa pools. “These Hot Spring spa pools are unique in that all models are fully insulated, unlike other spa pools on the market, and this makes them the most energy-efficient spa pools in the world,” Matt says. Models at the higher end of the range incorporate the latest technology, utilising the ACE Salt Water sanitising system, that works on real diamond electrodes to generate softer, cleaner water. Offering a range of less expensive models as well, Wright Spa Pools caters for all budgets and requirements. A new top-end line that has just been introduced is the Endless Swim Spa, which provides a smooth and consistent current for swimming against, with options including an underwater hydraulic treadmill. “These are the number one swim spas in the world,” Matt says. “Unlike most swim spas that use jets to move the water, the Endless Swim Spa provides a current like a river, creating a more natural flow.” Designed to offer therapeutic benefits, this spa is ideal for low-impact exercise and is a cost-effective alternative to a swimming pool, he says. Endless Swim

Spas are also easy to maintain, the water temperature can be adjusted at the push of a button, and they can be moved. Spa pool prices range from $5,990 right up to $100,000 - those considering purchasing one are invited to “try before they buy” at the showroom. “People can come in with their family and test out the different models. A spa pool is a major investment, so clients need to be sure they choose the right one for them,” Matt says. “We will also do on-site visits if they are not sure of the best place to install it.” Wright Spa Pools provides a full delivery and installation service, and after-sales support. “We don’t just drop off the spa pool, we set it up and explain how to operate it.” To complete the outdoor lifestyle experience, Wright Spa Pools has a range of Bull barbeques, also imported from the US. Like the Hot Spring spa pools, they are manufactured to the highest standard and are built to last. Wright Spa Pools Hornby is owned and operated by brothers Matt and Jeff Lowe. Their team of friendly sales and service professionals are ready to discuss your spa pool requirements and help you make the right choice. The team members are sales manager Nick Davies, sales professionals Joe Bergman, Jess Ledgerwood and Ashley Davies and service and installation specialists Shane Hamilton and Scott Sutherland. Wright Spa Pools Hornby, 20 Carmen Road, is right beside the railway tracks and has 40 on-site customer car parks. It is open seven days a week – Monday to Friday 9am-5pm; Saturday and Sunday, 10am-4pm. Phone 349 0443 for more information.

Incorporating show homes in your planning process There are many things to think about when you’re considering building a new home.

Better returns. Less hassle. Browsing show homes is a fantastic way to get you thinking about practicalities, needs, aesthetics and your wish list! Here are a few consideration’s to help spark your planning process. • What is your exterior style? What kind of homes do you like? Look around and take a mental note of what you are drawn to most. • What kind of exterior materials do you like? Once you’ve worked out the look you like, research what materials are available and find out about durability. • How will you use your house? It’s important to most people to have a good indoor/outdoor flow and attractive, sheltered outdoor living. Imagine your home in various seasons. • Landscaping is important. Look around and consider what you like and don’t like. Are you a structured formal garden type or do you like a contemporary native style? • Sustainability and future-proofing

aren’t just buzzwords anymore. It’s very important for your new home to be environmentally friendly. Research insulation requirements, solar hot water heating, ventilation options and new technology to ensure your home will be affordable to run. • Interior décor is really exciting. This is where show homes can really help you get to know current trends, colours, beautiful furnishings and furniture. Collect home magazines and figure out what you’d love to emulate. • Also, pause to give thought to architectural components inside. Do you remember a raised ceiling? What kind of finishing do top homes use and which styles are you drawn to? • Heating is also a consideration. Have a look at what show homes are offering. • Kitchens form the heart of the house. Show homes give you insight into the latest styles, materials and storage facilities available. • Bathrooms are another big component. They need to be as luxurious as you can make them, so start dreaming.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections in the Selwyn District

Dressing your property up for sale Your house is on the market and you hope to get a good price. While market performance will largely influence this, presenting your home at its best will help. First impressions count from the moment potential buyers view a property from the street to the moment they walk through the front door. Weed the garden, cut back unruly shrubs and prune trees where needed. Kill off weeds in the lawn, sprinkle grass seed over bald patches and fertilise the lawn. Indoors, tidy up. Get rid of excess or bulky furniture, toys, books, hobby items or fitness equipment and if too many photos on the wall pack these away so the home looks roomy. If there is a gap or a room needs enhancing, look at what you have. A piece of furniture might be painted up or an old leather bound book popped on the coffee table. Shelves will also add depth to a narrow space while mirrors may give the illusion of a larger space. In entryways, add an easy chair, small table, bookcase or large vase. Awkward spaces such as coved ceilings in attics or upstairs rooms might be converted into storage shelving and the room given a purpose as an office, playroom or extra bedroom so viewers can see how the room might be used. Stow possessions neatly in containers, shelving or tidily in cupboards; highlighting the storage potential within the home, ensuring it is clean and tidy for viewing at any time. Move the pets outside as not all buyers will be pet lovers while some may suffer pet allergies putting them off a house if they see a pet inside. If parts of the house look tired, consider renovating by painting walls, replacing worn carpet, or modernising the kitchen, bathroom and toilet; rooms that should sparkle. Replace tired cabinetry, or the benches and cupboard/drawer fronts then update old toilets, showers or kitchen

appliances. Modernising these rooms can lift the final selling price. Use consistent and light paint colours throughout for balance and seamlessness, making the house appear more spacious. An effect that is increased when walls and curtains share the same or a similar colour. Consider the personality and purpose of a room. Bright colours lift living areas especially if large and open. However, bedrooms are suited to calmer softer colours with just a touch of bold. Layer bedding or use throws for effect along with cushions or a stuffed toy in a children’s room. With curtaining, smaller patterns or plain fabrics are the rule for smaller rooms whereas larger patterns make spacious areas cosier. If blinds or drapes are past their best, replace these even if it is only with neutral cotton curtains. The effect will be worth it. Eco-friendly features will also add value for some buyers though not universally, however earthy natural colours and features are popular. Consider who your target buyers are likely to be and what will appeal to them.
