Name and shamer says sorry for gaffe BY TOM DOUDNEY A Facebook poster has apologised for naming and shaming two people online he mistakenly blamed for dumping a truckload of rubbish (right) near the Selwyn River. Several Facebook pages posted the names and address of a Christchurch man and woman said to have dumped the rubbish. It included some of the woman’s mail and personal belongings, at McGregor’s Ford, south of Burnham.

A post attracted comments on the Rolleston Community Page referring to them as “scum” and calling for them to be invoiced or forced to come and clean it up. The post had been shared from the Wall of Shame – Canterbury Facebook page, administered by Christchurch resident Peter Maguire. Mr Maguire later edited the post to remove the names and address after receiving a message from the woman’s partner who said she had briefly flatted with some people

who took some of her belongings which had been dumped and would not return them. Mr Maguire also contacted other Facebook pages to request they also remove the details.

He told the Selwyn Times he had since apologised to the people he had named. “I thought the damage is done but I will clean it up as best I can,” he said. “I was a bit upset at the time and thought I would put it up – I just jumped to conclusions because their mail was amongst it.” Mr Maguire said he had got the information and photograph of the rubbish from another Facebook page but couldn’t remember which one. • Turn to page 2

More than 120 children flocked to the Lincoln Event Centre as Lincoln Envirotown held its KidsFest event on July 10. The children arrived to find all sorts of fascinating activities set up for them to experience throughout the morning. This success was due to a collaboration with the Living Water Programme. Living Water is a partnership between the Department of Conservation and Fonterra working with local communities to achieve leading-edge biodiversity and water quality improvements such as those around Lake Ellesmere. Helpers from Living Water arrived on the day with numerous creatures borrowed from local rivers as well as educational and visual materials for the children. These were a source of fascination to the children (and some of the adults) who were not necessarily aware of the things which lurk in our waterways. Equipment to examine the smaller life forms of the surrounding waterways was provided by the Waterwatch team from Lincoln University, and those students helped the

were the students from Lincoln High School’s Environment Council. Since March they had been planning various craft activities, which they then helped the younger children with throughout the morning.

• From page 1 He had now changed the focus of the page, which was set up about a month ago, to be less about naming people. Senior Sergeant Pete Stills said people needed to be very careful about naming and shaming people on social media. “There are inherent dangers in naming people when you are basing your allegations without any evidence – and there can be many explanations why the identity of someone might appear somewhere. We constantly deal with issues where things go on social media that are completely untrue.” Senior Sergeant Stills said social media could, with care, be used responsibly as a tool for combating crime. However, he said before anyone posted something about others online, they should stop, think, gather some evidence and keep in mind the risk of defaming people. Constable Herb Inwood said he had spoken to a man at the Rolleston flat where the woman had been planning to move to but he said he hadn’t dumped the rubbish and there were no further lines of inquiry to follow up at this stage. He said the dumping was “just sheer laziness and miserableness.” The district council and Environment Canterbury have removed the rubbish. ECan regional leader investigations and incident response Valyn Barrett said “potential leads” found amongst the rubbish was being pursued in an attempt to identify the culprits.

New regulations for drones

▌IN ▌ BRIEF

New drone regulations come into effect on August 1. The new rules mean drones won’t be able to fly over people’s properties without the property owner’s consent, but there will be no rules around personal privacy. Drones have been an issue in Rolleston where householders have been worried they have been spying on people. There have been a number of incidents including one where a woman who had been in the shower walked into her bed-

room and saw a drone hovering over her property.

husband went outside. Barrister Stephen Iorns who has been looking into the privacy implications and the Civil Aviation regulations, says few complaints had been laid. “There aren’t that many complaints. The Privacy Commission has only received one complaint to date. The general privacy laws do apply, it doesn’t matter what the technology is, and the general rules are the same,” he told Paul Henry on TV3.

She did not know if it had a camera. It flew off when her

Broadband funding sought Darfield, Leeston and Southbridge will be among the areas to benefit from improved broadband and mobile phone services if Government funding can be secured. The district council has applied for the Government’s ultra-fast fibre broadband fund, its rural broadband initiative and mobile black spot fund. The application also supports using Rural Broadband Initiative funding to improve internet services in the 60,000ha area to be covered by the Central Plains Water irrigation scheme, west of State Highway 1 between the Rakaia and Waimakariri River. The scheme is expected to have a wider economic impact of between $1 billion and $1.4 billion

and create 1130 jobs. District council chief executive David Ward said that as it was rolled out there would be a need for farms to have access to sophisticated software to monitor and input data needed for water and farm management. The application sought to prioritise broadband improvements so that they occur alongside the staged development of the scheme. It requested that the services to Darfield, Kirwee, Leeston and Southbridge be expanded, and that the existing Lincoln ultra-fast broadband service be extended to include new subdivisions and Tai Tapu. Lincoln and Tai Tapu’s population is expected to grow from

about 6500 now to nearly 10,000 by 2025. In the same period, Darfield and Kirwee are expected to grow from about 4100 residents to more than 5000, and Leeston and Southbridge from about 3200 to 3800. Currently Rolleston and Lincoln are the only areas of Selwyn to have access to ultra-fast fibre broadband. A recent district council survey found that 34 per cent of people from Selwyn townships outside of Rolleston and Lincoln had internet speeds of 3mpbs or less and experienced issues using the internet for some business or leisure activities. The district council has also applied to the Government’s mobile black spot fund to improve mo-

bile phone coverage along State Highway 73 between Springfield and Otira. “This route is a busy tourist highway, and during the winter it is used by thousands of skiers to visit the six ski-fields located in Selwyn,” Mr Ward said. “From the perspective of civil defence and emergency services it is critical that mobile coverage be provided along this route due to the risk of traffic accidents and ski accidents. There is also the risk of an earthquake occurring along the alpine fault line. Should this occur it is also critical that mobile coverage be provided so that contact can be made with communities living in this area and contractors working to reopen the road.”

Crash victim named

Police have named the victim of a fatal crash involving three vehicles on State Highway 1 between Burnham and Dunsandel on Thursday. He was 60-year-old Anthony Newton from Ashburton. Senior Sergeant Peter Stills says Mr Newton was headed north-bound when his vehicle crossed the centre line at Norwood. “His vehicle collided with a trailer being towed south-bound before colliding with another south-bound vehicle.” The death has been referred to the Coroner.

Burglaries connected

Thousands of dollars of household items and power tools were stolen on Saturday afternoon in three burglaries which police believe to be connected. The burglaries took place at rural houses on Hanmer Rd and The Lake Rd, north of Doyleston. The burglars gained entry to the houses by breaking windows in the front doors and reaching in to unlock them. TVs, a chainsaw and hedge trimmers were among the items taken. Constable Herb Inwood appealed for people to be vigilant and report any suspicious behaviour in the area.

Becky Davidson

OUR PEOPLE

Sports nut has eyes on sevens at Tokyo Rolleston’s Becky Davidson is a top rippa rugby and touch player. She now has her eyes on playing sevens for New Zealand at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. She talks to Fraser Walker-Pearce

AMBITIOUS: Becky Davidson’s goal is to represent New Zealand at sevens in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Thanks for chatting with me Becky. Now obviously you’re involved with heaps of sports, what is your favourite? How far do you want to go with it? Sevens, because I love the space and being able to run, and the environment and general fitness aspects. My goal is to make the New Zealand team and go to the Olympics, not Rio but the next one. If I keep training then for sure I think I can make it. You’re an ambassador for the Forward Foundation, what does that mean for people who don’t know what that is? How long have you been involved with it? How does it help you? I try to help promote minority sports, and I help set up organisations that girls can be involved in. I help with projects to get people involved in sports, for rugby I get involved with training sessions; people come to the trainings for fun, but hopefully it

can become more competitive. You’re also involved with the New Zealand tag rugby team. Could you explain what that sport is and what tournaments you have lined up for that? It’s pretty much an alternative to league, it’s rippa rugby basically. It’s league rules except you rip the tag off the player. I’m going to Australia for the World Cup in December. I reckon New Zealand have a very good chance of winning it. I think the New Zealand Maori team usually wins, it seems to be their main sport in the North Island. Are you still at school? What’s your favourite subject? Do you have a part-time job? Yes, I’m in year 13 at Burnside High School. My favourite subject is sports leadership. It’s where I learn to coach and go on courses, theory work and coach a team; I coach the Rolleston Primary School netball team, and they’re doing really well. I work for Sport

Canterbury, doing Kiwi Sport holiday programmes in Rolleston and Pioneer, I just started last holidays. I coach the juniors; at the moment – they love playing octopus and we just started basketball with them. How big is sport in your life? Do you have spare time at all? Could you run me through a typical week of practices and games? It’s huge; it takes up a lot of my time. If I’m not doing anything I’ll do Cross-Fit, I’ve been doing it all this year in Rolleston. Sometimes I have spare time! I do normal stuff; go on Facebook, watch TV, and I love Shortland St. Monday morning would start with Cross-Fit, at night I have a Canterbury women’s training course for rugby. Tuesday I coach the primary netball team, and have Suburbs rugby training; where I play centre or second five-eighth. Wednesday I do Cross-Fit in the morning, then a game of school girl rugby; then basketball training and netball training. Wednesday is definitely the hardest day, and I’m usually injured after most Wednesdays. Thursday I try to rest but I have rugby training for Suburbs. Friday I have a basketball game and Cross-Fit.

Rugby fundraiser for playcentre LINE BREAK: Davidson on the charge for the Canterbury women’s sevens team. On Saturday I coach netball, play netball and then rugby. Sunday I have a basketball game. But I think I might stop playing some of my other sports so I can start to focus on rugby. Have you ever been injured? What’s your worst? Did you have to take time off sport? At the moment I’ve chipped my pinky finger, but I just tape it up and keep going. My knees are pretty sore from being overworked. I actually took it down a notch for about a week, but then

I just taped up my injuries and kept going. If you can’t be a professional sportsperson, what would you want to be? I guess I’d want to be a nutritionist, or a sports coach, and I was also looking into the police force. But whatever it is, it’d probably have to be something physical. I’m very interested in nutrition, and I’ve been to a few people that have helped me with diets and other stuff.

CHIPPING IN: The Southbridge Rugby Football Club will be hosting its annual community fundraising event, known as Albert Anderson Day, on August 22.

Funds raised from the events of the day will go to the Southbridge Playcentre and be put towards expenses including replacing old equipment to help maintain a fresh and challenging environment for children. The day will start with the junior rugby prize-giving at 12.15pm in the clubrooms. The main game, Ellesmere Development v North Canterbury Development, will kick off at 1pm at Southbridge Park. There will be raffles and a bouncy castle and play area for the children, as well as a shop with sausage sizzles and drinks. The Famous Auction kicks off at around 4.45pm, followed by the Alby Anderson Player of the Year presentation. This year, items include Daniel Carter memorabilia such as a pair of signed rugby boots, a local duck shooting experience, firewood and other prizes.

New homes may not be warm enough BY TOM DOUDNEY

non-IC-rated downlights can all add to huge power bills in new homes.” The World Health Organisation recommends keeping the lounge at 18 deg C minimum, 21 if there are children, elderly or people with a health condition in the house. District council building manager Ian Butler agreed with the CEA spokeswoman’s comments and said people should be discussing methods of heating homes, levels and methods of insulating and the effects of orientation to the sun with designers from the outset. “Upfront cost is always an influencing factor for new home builds and generally longer-term running cots are given little if any consideration,” he said. “The big problem is changing the mindset of the public from ‘how cheap can I build a new house’ to ‘how can I build a sustainable new house within my budget’. ” The majority of homes were built only to achieve compliance with New Zealand’s building code and the Building Act 2004 prohibited councils from requiring consent applications to be at a higher standard than what was specified by the code. “There are resources – websites and brochures – available from the council that can provide

Many new homes in Selwyn may be failing to keep their owners warm, dry and healthy, a charitable trust has warned. In 2014, Community Energy Action visited nearly 450 Canterbury homes including 11 in Selwyn, to check how they could be made warmer. The results had even the experienced energy advisers surprised with problems in newer homes sometimes as bad as those in older homes. CEA chief executive Caroline Shone said its advisers were being called to assess more and more newer Canterbury homes where people were feeling the cold because they couldn’t afford the heating required to keep the house at a healthy temperature. “There are lots of new homes being built in Selwyn. Everybody always thinks people in new homes are warm and cosy with low power bills because they have wall insulation and double glazing. To our own surprise we find that is not the case,” she said. “Or actually, [it’s] not so surprising when you know the building standard is the minimum, not the recommended level. Only when they move in and are cold, they realise that. And that is just insulation. Heat pump size and positioning, inadequate sizing of the hot water cylinder and

advice on energy-efficient design and keeping a home warm,” Mr Butler said. “However, the majority of applicants aren’t interested in going back to designers to discuss whole-of-life building costs and will tell you ‘it’s taken me several months to get this far, it’s a new home, it’ll be fine, I just want to get on with it’. ” Leeston resident Lee Rathgen said that she and her husband David had been surprised by how poorly their eight-year-old house had performed in terms of heating. A CEA assessment of the Rathgens’ house identified a number of issues, including gaps in the insulation around their downlights, gaps under their doors and an internal door installed between the house and the garage, when an external door would have been appropriate. The couple, who have two children, spent as much as $480 on power during the colder months of the year, compared to only about $180 in summer. “We’re quite lucky we can manage to afford that but I feel extremely sorry for younger families with young children. It’s clearly through the roof at these prices,” Mrs Rathgen said. “My mother is 78. Her bills are not that much less and that is pretty crippling for a pensioner.”

Soldiers of Selwyn

Celebrating those who died in World War 1 With SelWyn librarieS www.selwynlibrary.co.nz

Etaples camp staging post World War 1 claimed the lives of about 18,000 New Zealand soldiers, while a further 41,000 were injured or fell ill. To honour those from Selwyn, a project was undertaken by volunteer historian Lynda Seaton on behalf of Selwyn Libraries to identify, research and record every soldier whose name was recorded on a World War 1 memorial in the district. To mark the centenary of the conflict, the Selwyn Times continues its weekly series, Soldiers of Selwyn. Private Thomas Hutchison Thomas Hutchison was born at Springston on August 14, 1889, the eldest son of Thomas and Emily Hutchison. He had been engaged in farming with his mother at Springston South, and also worked on Messrs Hewson Bros, threshing plant. He was highly respected by all who knew him. He was one of a number of departing soldiers who was presented with a gold medal by Mr Kime in May 1917. He was also a member of the Ethelbert Lodge of the Ancient order of Druids, a local fraternal organisation. Thomas enlisted at Christchurch on March 12, 1917, and was assigned to the 27th Reinforcements, Auckland Infantry Regiment, A Company. When he was at Featherston Camp he forfeited three day’s pay for being late back from leave on May 28. He embarked from Wellington on June 12, arriving in Devonport and marching in to Sling Camp on August 16. He left for France on September 27

and marched into Base Depot at Etaples on September 29. He joined the division in the field on October 7 and was posted to the 3rd Battalion Auckland Regiment, C Company. The next month he was evacuated sick with bronchitis to the No 3 Canadian General Hospital. It may be that he had been exposed to mustard gas although there are no notations on his record. He was sent to England on December 1 and admitted to the City of London Military Hospital at Clapton. He was then admitted to hospital at Walton on Thames and then Hornchurch and finally to Codford on February 14, 1918. He was attached to the strength (Auckland Reserve Battalion) again at Sling on May 7 but this appears to have been premature because on June 23 he was admitted to the Military Hospital at Tidworth with pneumonia. He died there five days later and was buried in the Tidworth Military Cemetery, Wiltshire, England. In New Zealand Thomas is remembered on the Greenpark and Springston War Memorials. Lance Corporal David McCulloch Howatson David McCulloch was born at

Southbridge on August 21, 1890, son of William and Margaret Howatson. He was educated at Southbridge School and subsequently followed agricultural pursuits. For some years after leaving school he was employed by Mr John McMillan, at Beachcroft, and later on worked for Miss Cryer and Mr W Lochhead. He played football for the Milltown Club for several seasons and was well known as a steady young fellow. David enlisted on November 18, 1915, and was assigned to 10th Reinforcements Canterbury Infantry Battalion, C Company and he was promoted to Lance Corporal before leaving New Zealand. Once landed, he was attached to the strength at Etaples on April 24. He joined 1st Battalion Canterbury Regiment and was attached to No 12 Company in the field on May 23. On September 19 he was admitted to the field ambulance and then to No 3 General Hospital in Etaples suffering a gunshot wound to his left buttock. He was sent to England on board the hospital ship Staad Antwerpen on September 28 and was admitted to the No 2 London Hospital at Chelsea the next day. He was treated and on October 17 he marched in to the Hornchurch Convalescent Depot. However, more treatment was needed and on November 11 he was admitted to hospital again. It was not until January 15 that he joined the Reserve battalion. While at Sling on February 7 he appeared on parade unshaved and spent two days confined to barracks. He was sent on to Codford

on March 30 and then transferred to 3rd Battalion, Canterbury Regiment on 3rd May being taken on the strength and attached to 12th Company on April 2. He left for France on May 28 but for some reason it was not until September 30 that he was attached to the strength at the New Zealand Reinforcement Camp in the field. He re-joined his battalion in the field on November 1. At the end the month he went on leave in Paris, returning on December 9 and was appointed Lance Corporal. After a period in reserve, the Division had gone back into the line on July 2, occupying trenches in front of the town of Hébuterne. The following weeks had been spent carrying out aggressive patrolling and fighting small actions to improve their tactical position. He was killed in action on July 17, aged 28. He was buried in Gommecourt Cemetery, France. In New Zealand David is remembered on the Southbridge Plaque of the Ellesmere County War Memorial and the Southbridge School Roll of Honour. Private Joseph James McClelland Joseph McClelland was born at Leeston on July 18, 1887, son of James and Mary Jane McClelland. Before enlisting he was farming at Brookside, where he was held in high regard. He was married to Caroline (nee Stephens) in 1915 and they had one child. He had previous military experience with Ellesmere Guards. Joseph enlisted at Christchurch on March 12, 1917, and was assigned to 28th Reinforcements, F Company. He embarked on July 14, 1917, on board the Waitemata from Wellington and arrived in Plymouth on September 24 marching into Sling Camp on the same day.

From there he was admitted to No 4 New Zealand General Hospital at Walton on Thames on October 18 with influenza, he was transferred to the Convalescent Hospital at Hornchurch on November 6. He was finally well enough for service again and sent back to Sling Camp on January 13, 1918. He left for France on March 20 and four days later was attached to the strength at Etaples. He joined the 2nd New Zealand Entrenching Battalion in the field on March 28. The Entrenching Battalions served two purposes, a pool into which reinforcements and returning soldiers were held in reserve and a force to carry out construction of rear defences, road formation and repair, tunnelling, cable laying. The division was in action around Hebuterne and repulsed a German attack. On April 11 he was transferred to the 2nd Battalion Canterbury Regiment. He was still with them three months later when he was killed in action on July 17 aged 31. He was buried in Gommescourt Cemetery. In New Zealand Joseph is remembered on the Irwell Plaque of the Ellesmere County War Memorial.

ing him to re-join his battalion on March 2. However, it seems that in his haste to get back he was not completely healed. He was sent to hospital again six days later with an abdominal abscess caused by the gunshot. He was taken to the XXII Corps Officers rest house on March 14. This was the Chateau of La Motte au Bois, hidden in a clearing in the Forest of Nieppe. The period of rest allowed was 14 days and was most suitable for the officer who was run down or suffering from some minor ailment which could be benefited by a quiet comfortable rest in pleasant surroundings. Duly rested and healed he was back on duty on March 30 at the XXII Corps Reinforcements Camp and was posted to No 2 NZ Entrenching Battalion. On April 3 he was attached to the strength at Etaples and marched out to Division on April 5 and rejoined the 2nd Battalion Canterbury Regiment.

SELWYN TIMES

Lincoln Day Club celebrates with The Lincoln Day Club celebrated its fifth birthday with music, activities and good company at the Lincoln Event Centre on Wednesday. About 60 people turned up for the occasion. The club started in July, 2010. Held once a month on a Wednesday, it offers older people morning tea and lunch as well as a range of activities such as quizzes, housie, exercises or a talk from an invited speaker. A group of 10 volunteers run the monthly get-togethers. One of those volunteers is Theresa Youngman, who said the club was a good way for older people to meet others.

“In Lincoln, there are a lot of elderly people around and some of them are lonely, so it’s a way just to get out and mix,” she said. “Not everyone knows about the club and it’s a shame because a lot of the people we see about the township could be enjoying it.” It costs $7 for each monthly event and the club is looking for new members. Anyone interested in taking part in future day club activities can phone Mrs Youngman on 325 2449 or just come down to the Lincoln Event Centre on the third Wednesday of the month between 10am and 3pm.

HERE TO HELP: Third year future leader scholar Sean Hand talks with open day visitors.

Lincoln open day draws more interest Lincoln University’s open day last week had 40 per cent more visitors than in 2014. Of the 700 secondary students, parents and potential postgraduates who attended, 45 per cent came from Canterbury, 28 per cent from the North Island and 27 per cent from the rest of the South Island. Deputy vice-chancellor international and business development Jeremy Baker said there had been a strong increase in interest in courses linked to the university’s Global Challenges programme. “Lincoln has worked hard with industry and community groups over the last two years to make sure our programmes are aligned with career opportunities and key challenges facing New Zealand and the world – and this is being reflected in the growing interest in study at Lincoln,” he said. Visitor attendance at sessions explaining key programmes jumped significantly, in many cases seeing more than double the numbers compared to last year. There was also increased interest

in the Bachelor of Agricultural Science, Bachelor of Science, the Bachelor of Commerce (Agriculture), the Bachelor of Agribusiness and Food Marketing, and the Bachelor of Commerce. Also in attendance at the open day were 16 Australians who won an all-expenses-paid ‘Land the Trip’ competition, to see what Lincoln can offer them. The winners took part in campus life, attended lectures and joined in on some orientation week activities. Two of the travelling Aussies won their spot in the competition through a wild card application, meaning they had to either write an essay or submit a 3min video of why Lincoln would help them to take on a global challenge. The two winners of the wild card applications were Charlotte Hastings and Heidi Andrews from Victoria. They were both impressed with the friendly welcome they received from the lecturers and students, and above all were impressed about the size and beauty of the campus.

GET AWAY FROM THE COLD

with every Onyx Home!

A PERFECT FIT! A purpose-designed plan to suit your lifestyle - for LESS than a standard plan!

By Richard Freeman ~ Director Onyx Homes Ltd

The management team of Onyx Homes are quite simply some of the best and most experienced people in the industry. It’s through this experience that Onyx Homes wants to bring to their customers a better standard of home that is often less than the standard-plan-built homes of their competitors. Onyx believe that everyone is unique, so why settle for a standard-plan-home when you can have a purpose-designed plan to suit exactly your lifestyle and for less than a standard plan? A perfect fit! This is testament to our customers who have been amazed at the savings with Onyx, but also hadn’t realised their budget would allow for a such quality spec and design.

• Don’t believe everything you hear in the media some building companies trying to margin enhance, making ridiculous statements about huge building price increases. • If you want genuine best pricing and top quality give Onyx Homes a call. You are guaranteed to talk to LOCAL industry professionals with years of experience rather than a sales person trained over night drafted into the industry with limited knowledge and zero idea on building costs working off a pre prepared song sheet. A sad but true statement in many cases. • Honesty, integrity, experience and common sense always outweighs “smoke and mirrors” and unfortunately common sense is not that common in many cases. Building commodity prices ARE stable, and I will personally guarantee that.

Lincoln through to rugby final

Ellesmere golf results

It was a case of third time lucky for Lincoln University on Saturday as they won through to the final of senior Christchurch rugby. The students have fallen one game short of the final for the last two years but made no mistake against New Brighton, winning 17-14. They now have the chance to win the competition for the first time since 1981 and go unbeaten throughout the season. New Brighton lead for most of the match, up 11-7 at half-time and 14-10 with less than 15min to play, but a try to Broc Hooper in the 68th minute put the students ahead, which was where they stayed. Lincoln University first five-eighth Ere Enari put a pinpoint cross-field kick in to send Hooper over the line. Michael Green scored their other try while Hooper kicked two conversions and a penalty. Lincoln University will meet Christchurch in Sunday’s final after they beat Marist Albion at Edgar MacIntosh Park 24-22. The two sides have already met twice this year with Lincoln University coming out on top both times. In the first match, played in May, Lincoln University were put under pressure by Christchurch coming away with a 25-22 win while their second meeting a month ago saw a 45-22 scoreline.

It pays to shop around for a Most people feel they pay too much for power, and a third have cut back on heating because of the cost. And according to the latest Consumer survey, customers signed up with the big electricity companies are least likely to be happy with their service. Gabrielle Stuart reports As the temperature drops and waking up to a frost becomes part of the morning routine, trying to keep warm is a challenge for many Cantabrians. With power prices continuing to rise, the costs of heating over winter can skyrocket. A third of customers surveyed by Consumer NZ said this year they had cut back on heating because of the cost of power. More than 75 per cent said they were concerned about how much power they were using. But before you turn off the heat pump and resort to wearing a winter jacket inside, there are other ways you can reduce the bill. Switching power companies could save an average household up to $584 per year. According to Powerswitch, Energy Online is currently the cheapest option for the average household in Christchurch – at $2154 per year.

Trustpower was most expensive, at $2738 per year. Energy Online was also the cheapest option for the average large household, but Contact Energy only cost a few dollars more, and was a slightly cheaper option for small households using less power. If you’re a big power user, switching companies could have more of an impact, with a $870 difference between the cheapest and most expensive price. But price isn’t the only factor. Although Contact Energy prices were significantly cheaper than average, it had one of the lowest Consumer performance scores from its customers. Electricity Authority data shows 93 per cent of the market is controlled by the five biggest power companies: Genesis, Contact, Meridian, Trustpower and Mighty River Power. Over the past five years both Genesis and Contact had consist-

Power company satisfaction ratings Powershop 94% Grey Power Electricity 87% Energy Online 85% Pulse Energy 80% Nova Energy 79% Trustpower 75% Just Energy 75% Meridian Energy 70% Mercury Energy 70% Contact Energy 67% Genesis Energy 64% •Based on customer satisfaction ratings collected by Consumer for companies supplying to Christchurch.

POWER TO YOU: The numbers of power companies in Christchurch are growing and competition in the market is heating up, which could be good news for you. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN ently scored below average in the Consumer satisfaction surveys, chief executive Sue Chetwin said. “Customers of most of the big five electricity retailers were less likely than average to be satisfied with their company’s performance,” she said. Trustpower, although the most expensive, was the only one of the

five with an above average rating – 75 per cent. The average score was 73 per cent, dropping from the average 78 per cent rating in 2012. New company Flick Electric was the highest ranked, with a score of 96 per cent – but it is currently only available in the North Island. Powershop, which is owned by

Meridian, was a close second at 94 per cent. Some companies were praised for having helpful staff to deal with in person or at call centres. Others liked having easy to understand bills, convenient payment methods or ways to track how much power they were using. Some companies had points of difference customers said they liked, like Powershop, which allows customers to buy units of power so they have more control over how much they pay. But although some companies scored well, overall consumer confidence was not very high.

power provider Only 15 per cent of people surveyed by Consumer thought power companies charged fairly or competitively. Just 5 per cent thought companies had the customer’s best interests at heart. And 14 per cent said they had switched in the past year. Nearly two thirds had been coldcalled by a power company in the past 12 months inviting them to switch, and 10 per cent reported four or more sales reps from different companies turning up within a year. But the majority of people who switched companies said it was because of their own research, not because of a visit from a company rep. If you plan to stay with your power company, there are still plenty of ways you can save without turning off the heating. One of the most important is to reduce draughts and ways your heat will disappear. Insulation, lined curtains or draught-proofing your doors and windows can cost a lot up-front, but over time could save you enough in power to make it worthwhile. Trim trees shading your house over winter, seal off open fireplaces when you are not using them, and seal any gaps you can find in floorboards or around doors. Heating an average electric hot

•Calculated by Powerswitch, based on a medium-sized household in Christchurch using 8650 kWh of power per year water cylinder will use 30 per cent of the average power bill, but there are simple things you can do to make them run more efficiently. Look at getting a cylinder blanket to wrap around it, and insulate bare hot water pipes running from it. Some cylinders can be set at a lower temperature, so check if your thermostat can be user-adjusted. A lower temperature will mean you are likely to run out of hot water faster, so it pays to get advice before changing it, especially if it is a

smaller cylinder or you use a lot of water. Small changes can impact your bill, like using a more efficient shower head or setting your washing machine to use cold water. Energy saver light bulbs can also make a difference. LED bulbs use less power than fluorescent spiral or stick CFL bulbs, but cost more up front, usually $20 or more. They’re also likely to last much longer. The average LED bulb will last about 12 years, and Consumer estimates that with average use it could save you about $14 in power each year. Most won’t work with dimmers, and they need ventilated fittings or they may get too hot and blow before they do. Check the warmth of the light too, as some come give cooler light than others. Cooking uses about seven per cent of an average bill and refrigeration about 11 per cent, so paying a bit extra for energy-efficient appliances can be worthwhile. Dehumidifiers can be expensive to run, so reducing moisture at the source when cooking or showering can save a lot. Only 15 per cent of people surveyed by Consumer thought power companies charged fairly or competitively.

Convenience and deals reasons to stay loyal BY ANDREW KING

Carol Twinn has been with Meridian Energy for years and has stayed with them out of convenience. The West Melton retiree lives on a rural property and does not have huge power bills due to alternative heating. “We are a rural property so we are allowed to have log burners so that is beneficial for us because we have access to wood which provides most of our heating for the winter,” she said. “We only pay around $120 a month all year round which is quite reasonable.” Meridian also helped her out with insulation giving her even less reason to look for another company. “The other good thing with Meridian was they offered us a insulation subsidy which we took up and we were able to insulate our home cheaper thanks to the power company.” Hornby resident Sandra Pilet doesn’t worry anymore about power companies getting her the best deal, she finds them herself with Powershop. She browses online for cheap power and enjoys the control it gives her over her power bill. “You can regulate it. If you cant

afford to buy the power at the time you just don’t. I just pay it off a little bit at a time so I don’t really notice it. You don’t get a great big power bill coming in you know like some people do,” she said. “A lot of people haven’t heard of it. So every month you get a bill but you have the choice of going into their website at certain times and they may have some cheap power for sale. If it is cheaper than normal I will click on it and buy a few units [of power] and it will be cheaper than if they had of just charged us a standard rate for the month. “I like doing it that way because it lets me feel in control of it.”

Council seeks better Look out for speed limit changes

communication coverage

Speed limits have been reduced on roads in the Prebbleton area on the fringes of Christchurch City, on the outskirts of some townships and on road sections where new development has occurred. New speed limit signs are in place where the changes have been made.

Speed limits have reduced from 100km to 80km per hour on many of the roads around Prebbleton. These roads are becoming increasingly busy and the area wide lower speed limit is a road safety measure. The 80km per hour speed limit has been extended on Shands Road to south of Selwyn Road and most surrounding roads. In Rolleston, speed limits have reduced in the Izone, Faringdon and Foster Park areas, on Brookside Road and Dunns Crossing Road near the new Rolleston West School and on the town’s outskirts on Levi Road and Springston Rolleston Road. Speed limit reductions also affect some roads in the townships of Darfield, Doyleston, Hororata, Leeston, Lincoln, Prebbleton, Springston, Tai Tapu and West Melton. In most cases the changes will introduce residential speed limits to new subdivision or housing areas. Some changes are a result of requests from local residents or township committees for lower speed limits to improve safety. A Register of Speed Limits and Maps is available online at www.selwyn.govt.nz.

The Council has lodged an application with the government to improve broadband and mobile phone services in Selwyn.

The Council’s application supports using rural broadband initiative funding to improve internet services in the Central Plains Water scheme area. The scheme will cover 60,000 hectares of the Canterbury plains west of State Highway One between the Rakaia and Waimakariri River. The scheme is expected to have a wider economic impact of between $1 billion and $1.4 billion and create 1,130 jobs. The Council undertook a survey during May of Selwyn households and businesses. Of the 634 responses to the survey, 54% came from rural or lifestyle areas. People in these areas experienced the slowest internet speeds, with 40% of people reporting speeds of 3mpbs or less and saying they found it difficult to work from home, use business or farm software, download files, watch videos or use Skype.

“Central Plains Water is projected to boost Selwyn’s economy significantly and create many new jobs,” says Selwyn District Council Chief Executive David Ward. “Improved broadband services will be necessary for farms and local businesses to be able to operate efficiently as for example farms will need access to sophisticated farm and water management software systems.” The Council’s application seeks to prioritise broadband improvements to occur alongside the staged development of the scheme. The Council has also requested that the government provide ultra-fast broadband to Darfield/ Kirwee, Leeston/Southbridge and that the existing Lincoln ultra-fast broadband coverage area be extended to Tai Tapu. These areas are expected to experience significant population and business growth. Lincoln is also a hub for education, industry and research and the expansion of research and industry will create demand for new housing in Lincoln and Tai Tapu. Darfield and Kirwee are expected to attract new businesses and workers once Central Plains Water is developed. The survey found that 34% of people from Selwyn townships outside of Rolleston and Lincoln had internet speeds of 3mpbs or less and experienced issues using the internet for some business or leisure activities. Currently only Rolleston and Lincoln have ultra-fast fibre broadband. The Council has also applied to the government’s mobile black spot fund to improve mobile phone coverage along State Highway 73 between Springfield and Otira. “This route is a busy tourist highway. From the perspective of civil defence and emergency services mobile coverage is needed due to the risk of traffic accidents and accidents at the six ski fields along this route. There is also the risk of an earthquake along the alpine fault line and mobile coverage is needed to contact communities living in this area and help restore essential services,” says Mr Ward.

New 80km speed signs are in place on Shands Road south of Selwyn Road

Area Plan meetings for Ellesmere and Malvern The Council is working to develop area plans for Malvern and Ellesmere. These plans will provide a 15 year framework for sustainable growth and development. They will look at how townships within Ellesmere and Malvern could develop and where housing, businesses, open space, community facilities and infrastructure could be located in the future. The plans will also look at what’s special about different towns and needs to be retained and how nearby towns work together.

Frozen water pipes? With the colder weather Selwyn has experienced lately we have had a number of calls about frozen pipes. New houses are required to comply with the Building Code which sets minimum performance standards. There are a number of reasons why your pipes may freeze in a heavy frost even if your home meets Building Code requirements. If you have experienced frozen pipes we suggest you: · identify where the pipes are freezing and contact the builder or plumber who completed work. They can install additional lagging or insulation around pipework in ‘at risk’ areas to reduce the risk of pipes freezing or bursting in severe frosts · keep your whole house warm to prevent pipes freezing inside the home · ensure you know how to maintain your home. See www.branz.co.nz/maintainingyourhome for advice on this.

Creating smiles for cancer patients Cancer has the ability to rob those affected of more than their physical health. “I am a ‘people person’ with an outgoing personality. Well, I used to be. When I was diagnosed with cancer, my demeanour changed, and it wasn’t long before my treatment became a lonely and nerve-racking journey,” says Miretta, a Look Good Feel Better workshop participant. That’s why Look Good Feel Better exists. The national charity supports Kiwis at a time when they need it most, by providing an opportunity for participants to claim back their personality beyond being a cancer patient - and learn practical tools to combat the ongoing visual and emotional effects of therapy. “It truly was a moraleboosting makeover, I felt like one of the group instead of a patient. It boosted and improved my self-esteem – and felt so darn good!” Miretta says. “It’s often the first time many women will be seen by others without their wig

AWARE: The need for nonmedical services is vital. or be touched by a person that isn’t doing so for medical purposes,” Clare O’Higgins, Look Good Feel Better’s general manager, says. “I rarely let people get close, other than those who are dear to me, but the women there all felt the same. We were all going through the same thing and bonded like I could never have imagined,” Miretta says. The demand for these life-enhancing workshops is now at its highest. More than 1860 Kiwis will be diagnosed with cancer dur-

ing Look Good Feel Better’s national awareness and fundraising campaign, Feel Better Month, this month – making the need for their non-medical services even more vital. Last year, Look Good Feel Better held workshops in 24 locations throughout New Zealand. This year, the charity is hosting workshops in 31 areas nationwide. “As long as New Zealanders continue to suffer the physical side effects of cancer treatment, Look Good Feel Better will be there to help bring back a sense of normality and control during a time when diagnosis and treatment have taken over their lives,” Ms O’Higgins says. •Look Good Feel Better receives no government funding and relies on the generosity of the public.

Rolleston Natural Health Where time is given...

Hi Everyone, I’m Chris from Rolleston Natural Health. I hope you’re coping with the winter’s ills and chills. To assist you try my number one go-to product Sambucus, recognised for its antiviral capabilities and Intensivly to blast the germs away. Sambucus is an extract made from the berries of the European black Elder (Sambucus nigra-L). For centuries, it’s been used as a winter remedy and influenza vaccine yet its actions are considered to be more broad-spectrum in boosting the immune system. Virologists studying the structure and evolution of viruses have found Elderberry extract can help prevent virus replication with Sambucus stopping viruses from sticking to cells and reproducing.

Chris Sonne Nature’s Way Sambucus is a helpful aid for the symptoms of cold, influenza, bronchial coughs and sore throats. It has also been found to soothe shingles and neuralgic pain. Sambucus is pleasant tasting, gluten free and safe for all ages from babies to the elderly. To learn more about natural immune assistance call into Rolleston Natural Health, 10C Chaucer Street in Rolleston (near the fire station) 9.005.30pm Monday to Saturday or give me a call on 03 3474 553.

Colourful roses that reach for Hayden Foulds takes a look at climbing roses and how to grow them

THERE IS perhaps no greater sight in the world of roses than a climbing rose in full flower covering a fence, wall, pergola or archway. While they may have the perception of taking up plenty of room, climbing roses actually take up very little ground space, making them ideal for even the smallest garden. Match the climber to the space available and they can be grown almost anywhere. Climbing roses are very versatile and come in a range of habits, colours and flower forms. Many are also scented and because the blooms are at nose height, there is no bending over to determine if they are scented or not. The long flowering season also places them at an advantage over climbing plants, like clematis, wisteria and bougainvillea, which have relatively short flowering periods. Such plants can be used as companions for roses, providing colour when the roses might not be looking their best. Just take care and ensure the companion is not one that will completely

take over. Climbing roses can be grown against anything, whether it’s ugly or attractive. Some of the large climbers can be used to cover sheds and grow up into large trees. On a more modest scale, climbers can be used against fences, pergolas, archways and buildings to provide a splash of colour to otherwise uninteresting areas. Modern climbing rose varieties can be roughly divided into two categories, largeflowering and small-flowering varieties. Over the last 50 years, the range of colours available has increased among climbers and there is also improved disease tolerance and freedom of flowering. Many are also fragrant as well. In recent decades, the range of small-flowering varieties, often referred to as miniature or patio roses, has increased and this is mainly as a result of the breeding work of Chris Warner from England. Be aware, however, that a smaller flower does not mean smaller-growing plants as some can get almost as large as large-flowering varieties.

TRAIN: Climbing roses can be grown against anything.

ICY: Roses in the Christchurch Botanic Gardens during an early morning frost. July is a good time to start pruning.

• The single biggest mistake made with climbing roses is at pruning time. People tend to treat them like a bush rose and cut them back too hard. This means they spend much of the next season making new growth at the expense of blooms. Instead, the canes should be left long and just shorten any side growth and remove any dead or diseased parts. • Training climbing roses into a fan shape is the best way of growing them. This results in blooms all along the canes rather than just a few at the end, which is what happens if they are left to grow straight up. If you have little room and can only grow your roses this way, stagger the lengths of the canes so you get flowers lower down.

IN NEED of expert advice on rose pruning? Susan Sanders, section curator of the central rose garden in the Christchurch Botanic Gardens, has extended an invitation to rose enthusiasts to observe the intricacies of rose pruning. On two days this month Ms

Learn how to prune your roses

In the Spotlight: Eco Mulch Eco Mulch is created using carefully selected tree trimmings that are aged to create a golden brown colour. They are then screened and graded to produce an attractive natural-looking mulch. This bark mulch is very popular for those who have a larger area to cover and are looking for a more cost effective product. It doesn’t go through a rigorous process like some of our other premium bark products, but is a great alternative for parts of the garden that do not have to be as highly decorative as others.

Putting a bark mulch on your garden has many benefits: 3 Maintains a more even soil temperature 3 Prevents weeds from coming through when applied at 100mm depth 3 Helps to retain water in the soil during warmer months, meaning less demand for frequent watering 3 Helps prevent the soil getting boggy in winter and drying out in summer 3 Helps to protect the plant’s roots from frost damage in winter 3 Creates a natural tidy finish to your garden setting application rate If you are not using weedmat, we recommend at least a 10cm layer to help prevent the weeds popping through, as well as retaining moisture. If you are using weedmat underneath, although a 10cm layer would still be beneficial, it isn’t as imperative!

Sanders will host demonstrations. This annual event will focus on standard, climbing, carpet, hybrid tea and floribunda roses. Demonstration dates are July 25 from 1pm to 3.30pm (rain date August 1) and July 29 (rain date August 5), also from 1pm to 3.30pm.

The cost per demonstration is $25 and places are limited, so be in quick to book a place – email gardensevents@ccc.govt.nz or phone 941 7590. Payment is to be made prior to each demonstration at the Botanic Gardens Visitor Centre front counter.

CONDENSATION – IS IT A PROBLEM?

Moisture or ice on windows makes a home cold, damp and harmful to family health, especially where mould or rotten wood results.

T

his condensation occurs when warm air connects with cold surfaces such as windows and exterior glass doors. Heating a room dries the air but as it is colder outside, when the warm air meets colder surfaces or when a room cools down, the humidity in a room condensates,

forming dew. Older homes generally experience more condensation than newer insulated double glazed houses, as the glass surfaces in the latter are not as cold on the inside. Other factors also influence the amount of condensation in a home, such as how many people live there

From concept to consent

We are here to help make your dream home a reality!

DRAUGHTING New Home | Alterations | Working Drawings 158 Levi Road, Rolleston Ph: 03 347 2600 | Mobile: 0274 328 483 | Email: ross.plans4u@xtra.co.nz

due to them exhaling moisture when they breathe out. Reducing condensation can be as simple as opening windows and drying clothes outside on fine days, rather than using a clotheshorse or drier which also saves electricity, though the clothes will need to be taken off the line before the day cools or they will get damp. Steam from cooking causes condensation so opening a window or using a rangehood to suck steam from the room will help, as will cooking with lids on pots. Using an extractor fan or opening a window after showering and limiting shower time also reduces moisture buildup. With serious condensation problems, a dehumidifier or extractor fan can help reduce condensation. Dehumidifiers either use a small refrigeration unit that draws moisture from the room or a desiccant system where air is fed through a revolving unit, which soaks up moisture before releasing dry heated air into the room, but while they work at lower temperatures, they use more electricity. One disadvantage of dehumidifiers is that stale air is recycled whereas opening windows reduces moisture and blows out dust mites, so it is better for allergy and asthma sufferers. An alternative is to install a ventilation system in the roof cavity. The most popular in New Zealand is a positive pressure system, though not as effective in colder climates where controlling the room temperature can be difficult. The air is also recycled from the ceiling cavity through wall or ceiling vents, so it may not be clean or warm. Effective in colder climates is a balanced pressure ventilation system which is an

air-to-air heat exchanger. Fresh air from outside is pumped in through ceiling vents, while stale air is drawn out with heat returned into the home in winter and cool air in summer. If looking to install a ventilation system, ask for one that complies with Building Code NZS 4303: 1990, which specifies the minimum ventilation rates and indoor air quality acceptable to human occupants to avoid adverse health effects.

Wallpapers

FEATURE ONCE MORE Early wallpapers were an affordable substitute for tapestries. They were large sheets of paper depicting a scene, either hung freely or pasted to the wall.

L

ater, wallpaper was used to cover scrim and sarking, where hessian or jute sacking was tacked to thin wood planks on the wall, or on lath and plaster walls which hid its uneven surface. With the invention of plasterboard, paint became fashionable and wallpaper’s popularity declined, fuelled by the work involved in wallpapering which was hard to hang. Too much paste, bubbles that appear while lining up patterns and avoiding creases presented a challenge, as did stripping old paper where copious water was applied with hours of scraping. Painted walls gained a following. Pre-pasted, easy to clean, vinyl-coated, strippable wallpapers were developed, helping to keep wallpaper’s popularity. Then fashions changed. Rolling on paint was quicker and easier, though lining paper needed to be hung over the plasterboard in new homes – a job often left to the experts. Wallpaper is back in vogue with a tremendous range of designs, colours

and textures, from the minimalistic to traditional, classic or retro, as well as murals. It can make a statement, blend décor elements, lift a plain entry way, create reflection in a dull area, or bring in an element of detail in an otherwise neutral interior. While rare, unpasted papers can still be purchased. Pre-pasted wallpapers are the most popular. They require just water to activate the paste. There are also imported wallpapers where the wall is pasted or moistened before hanging.

Wallpaper is now mainly used for feature walls and its design and colours should coordinate with its neighbouring painted walls. Artwork can accentuate its effect. Combining the three elements of paint, wallpaper and fabrics through drapes, furniture and soft furnishings allows creativity and the personality of those in the home to be portrayed in the décor. Less is still better on the home furnishing front with wallpaper assisting a theme and giving a focal point to a particular area, such as in a boy’s room where racing car wallpaper might be hung or a princess theme in a girl’s room. Feature walls are not for every room though. Use them as a focal point in one to

GETTING HELP with the cleaning

Finding time to do the cleaning can be a challenge when your schedule is busy and even more of a challenge when shifting house.

T

he last thing anyone wants is to have to clean cupboards before unpacking. New houses require even more cleaning to remove construction dust and dirt. It therefore makes sense to get in experts who are experienced in builders’ cleans and take the time to remove gunk from drains, clean dirt out of window gutters, remove stickers from showers and windows and know how to get that hard to shift dust off the windows. “Some builders’ cleans just aren’t what they should be,” says Paul Stokes who, along with his wife Yvonne, operate Brown & White professional cleaning specialists. Paul and Yvonne are fast and efficient cleaners. They clean those hard to reach places and climb a ladder rather than just using a hose so the job is done properly. “We’re often referred to as ‘the fussy people’ because we care about doing the job thoroughly,” explains Paul.

Brown & White carry out high quality cleans for residential and commercial properties, either regularly or casually as builders’ spring or other one-off cleans. When it comes to cleaning, Paul and Yvonne do almost anything including: • cleaning windows inside and out on domestic and low level commercial buildings; • washing exterior walls including weatherboards to protect the paint; • cleaning out leaf matter from spouting so rain water flows easily and does not build up and seep into the surface; and • carrying out water blasting Paul and Yvonne think of the little things such as cleaning the heat pump filter. “They cleaned my house a few weeks ago. My windows and ceiling have never looked so clean, and my heat pump works so well having never heated the house like it does now,” wrote Karen Middleton. With years of experience, Paul and

Yvonne can accurately calculate the time a job will take, providing customers with reliable quotes. Their motto is first quote, book, do, leaving a satisfied customer. They arrive with all their own equipment, waste no time, get on with the job and do not charge for travel. To book Paul and Yvonne, give them a call on 0800 276 698 or 027 229 3534.

Playing in the snow is fun but for the property owner, its effects can be significant if it warps and twists roof guttering out of shape as it thaws and slides off the roof.

Leaf Gutter Protection. “Using gutter guard gives total protection as it strengthens the roof guttering and stops it from ripping off under the weight of snow.” Gum Leaf Gutter Guard has colour matched to the roof and spouting and colour matched screws used so all blends aesthetically, fitting neatly with the contours of the roof. The product, which has a 15-year guarantee, is made from Australian BlueScope Colorbond steel made by BHP, which means it will last as long as your roof. Gutter guard provides a barrier against leaves and debris as well as animals accessing the roof cavity. “Birds and vermin take nesting materials into the ceiling, causing a fire hazard when they seek out warm areas such as down lights,” advises Rohan. Gutter guard assists people who collect rain water for household or garden use by keeping out rubbish and vermin; especially helpful where water is drawn from a bore over rich in minerals or subject to pollution from trace metals or agricultural runoff. Installing gutter guard can repair snow-damaged guttering, making it more cost-effective than the traditional method of replacing spouting. “Gutter guard is straight, so it repairs the guttering and

Feeding birds during winter

Winter can be particularly hard on birds.

T

he best way to assist birds through winter is to grow plants and trees that provide a food source of nectar, fruit and berries, or as a host to insects. Native plants such as kowhai, makomako (wineberry), coprosma, kotukutuku tree (fuchsia), whauwhaupaku (five finger plant) and flaxes will all attract native birds as will introduced species,

such as grevillea and banksia, which are a favourite with bellbirds. If the garden is less established, sugary water will bring natives and endemic birds, like bellbirds and silvereyes (more popularly known as wax-eyes). It may even attract a tui if the property is near the Port Hills. The solution is simply one cup of sugar dissolved in a litre of warm water. Birds most common in Canterbury gardens are sparrows, blackbirds, starlings and thrushes. All feed on bread scraps which should be limited as bread is high in salt, so too much is harmful, especially if chicks are around. They need their parents to find protein food gained from insects. Also, never put out mouldy bread as this can be toxic to birds. Finches will also come to feed on seeds so unless the lawn is long, these may need to be purchased from pet or grocery stores. Put the seeds in a bird feeder or mix into melted lard and even some household scraps. The mixture can then be put into a net bag for hanging. Starlings and silvereyes will also be attracted to a bird feeder and fruits, such as apple, pear, orange or grapefruit, which can be cut into pieces. Bellbirds also like fruits. Be sure to put any feed up high, either on a pole or hanging from a tree out of the way of cats that will be only too happy to stalk any unsuspecting bird. Make sure, too, that

the feeder is not near glass as the birds might be harmed if they fly into it. Alternatively, install a bird feeder table or bird bath. They will provide amusement as the birds feed, drink and bathe. Hose these out regularly to get rid of any contaminants, such as bird droppings and lice. It may take a little while for birds to discover your new food source so persist, regularly putting out food so the birds get into the habit of visiting your garden.

MOTORING

Sporty Merc delivers plenty of sound SPECIFICATIONS

A WISH came true. When I recently evaluated Mercedes-Benz’s GLA 250, not surprisingly, I wished I could drive the full works AMG version – the GLA 45. Unexpectedly, a short while later Mercedes-Benz New Zealand made that car available to me and it lived up to all of my expectations. In effect, the GLA 250 and 45 share much the same engine, however, the latter has a full boost 265kW engine compared to the 250’s 155kW output. The result is phenomenal, the GLA 45 AMG is a feisty, sporty wagon which mixes practicality, performance and style all in one versatile package. Incidentally, a 2.1-litre diesel is also available in the GLA-Class. If you like to be noticed when you drive, the GLA 45 has presence, a huge rear wing wouldn’t look out of place on a formula one car, and the rest of the AMG enhancements combine to produce an aggressive appearance. That is matched by its sound, especially when in manual or sport mode. It is so loud, the first

MERCEDES-BENZ GLA 45: Sports machine with huge power. time it barked through the exhaust on gearshift it gave me a fright. Underneath, the GLA 45 gets the 4Matic four-wheel-drive system which enhances grip and helps get that massive amount of power to the ground. If you also take into account the GLA 45 also has a staggering 450Nm of torque, the engine is a powerhouse, it has solid energy all through the rev band. Power is fed through a sevenspeed direct shift gearbox and it does well to harness the energy flow, yet it’s fair to say speed is ushered in without a lot of sensation. Yes, there is definite sound under load, and with a wonderful exhaust howl and crackle as the revs build and fade, the driveline sends out all the right messages as it gathers pace. Mercedes-

Benz claim a 4.8sec run to make 100km/h from a standstill, while it will also lunge through a highway overtake in 3.8sec (80km/h120km/h). Not only is the GLA 45 quick, it also handles with the type of prowess you’d come to expect from a sports machine. The suspension is a fully independent system, it is quite firmly sprung but not so much that the ride quality is compromised, there is enough compliance to combat any rigidity while uneven surfaces are dealt to without too much in-cabin intrusion. The benefit is the containment of body movement, and that is credible given that the GLA, due to its unusual body style, is at almost 1.5m sitting on the tall side for a sports car. I took the test car on the Port

Comand package (sat nav and infotainment package) and lists at $99,900. If you take into account the usual Mercedes-Benz trimmings you are buying a pretty smart performance package. And if you don’t drive the AMG 45 too hard you will be rewarded with a 7.6-litre per 100km (37mpg) combined cycle average, according to the manufacturers. Under test conditions I took the car back with it showing 9l/100km (31mpg) on the trip computer which I thought was respectable. Mercedes-Benz has a vast model line-up and a line-up which is constantly refreshed, especially at present. There are models for all tastes and applications. The AMG 45 serves to prove that as a company Mercedes-Benz hasn’t lost sight of its rich sporting heritage. Just look at formula one at the moment, Mercedes-Benz engines are dominating the sport. The AMG 45 could well be a spin-off from that success.

Hills through the Summit Rd, down Gebbies Pass to Motukarara. It was in its element in the tight and twisty bits, it is far from a handful with its beautiful steering and positive information at the steering wheel. Turn-in is precise and balance in a corner is delightful, the engine squirts power in delicately but forcefully, and the AMG braking system is just so finely structured. The GLA 45 impresses with its ability, it reminds me of the true sports sedans that we have come to expect from Europe, yet the GLA as a series is also a practical family wagon of sorts. It is difficult to classify as a concept, but it has versatility thrown in the design. It also represents value given the level of fitment and level of performance. The test car was fitted with a

Industrial styling with a difference FOR SHOW HOME

The increasingly popular industrial theme is evident in the Horncastle Homes' show home at Faringdon subdivision in Rolleston.

“A

t times, industrial is interpreted with a raw, utilitarian appeal which can look grungy and somewhat dirty, and therefore an un-homely style,” advises Mrrietta Horncastle. “We’ve tried to avoid that by using rich velvets and leather fabrics with crisp, fresh surfaces and interesting feature wallpapers. I chose both brown and polished silver rather than black or dull metals, giving a more upmarket feel and contemporary twist on the theme.” Since Horncastle Homes began 20 years ago, the interior of each of their show homes has been themed with a different ‘look’. “This creates a sense of cohesion and uniqueness as well as providing our customers with inspiration for their own homes,” says Mrrietta Horncastle, who selects the colour schemes, finish and furnishings for each show home. Mrrietta follows the latest in house and interior design, sourcing interesting and unique materials from the paint colour and wallpaper through to the furniture and soft furnishings. “We believe you really can make a point of

difference and showcase an individual style with the right decorating theme, and we like to push the boundaries a little by adding interesting pieces and features which drive a lot of discussion and opinion.” Horncastle Homes’ Faringdon show home will appeal to all ages, especially families, and those who like to entertain. Its floor area of 201 square metres makes it an ideal three-bedroom family home. There is an en suite and walk-in robe recess in the main bedroom which is a little separated from the other two bedrooms, so ideal for a family with older children or teenagers. Both bathrooms have fully tiled showers and the main bathroom is tiled to the ceiling throughout, with the open plan kitchen living space also tiled. The walk-through designer kitchen has 900mm wide Bosch appliances and generous cupboard space, while sliders open on two sides of the living area to a large timber deck with partial roof overhang. There is a large separate laundry that has good storage and bench space, a double garage with attic stairs to a loft storage area, gas hot water and in-slab heating, customised joinery,

A BESPOKE HOME FOR LIFE When classic house design also takes on elements that are essential for contemporary living, you know that you are investing in a home for life. Montrose Design and Build For Life combine superior materials and meticulous craftsmanship with the latest technology to ensure your home is beautiful on the inside and out – creating a home you will love to live in. The newest show home at Lincoln is testament to all Montrose incorporates in the projects it undertakes; meticulous planning, highly specified chattels, quality construction, while integrating revolutionary technologies and finishes which in turn create boutique buildings for discerning clients. Architects, Michael Cousens and Rob Nicholls of Gravity Architecture and Montrose have dedicated time and industry knowledge in the planning phase of this exemplary show home to ensure they create a timeless property which will make living effortless. This four bedroom property offers inter-connecting living areas that flow seamlessly to form the focal point of this home – essential for family living and entertaining. These areas also have the ability to be closed off to accommodate private environments when required. Cathedral ceilings, a schist stone gas fireplace and oak flooring combine with carefully selected fixtures and fittings – ensuring a customised finish. There is a stunning master bedroom suite, two superbly appointed bathrooms including a luxurious ensuite, an office, a separate laundry and a double garage complete the offering. What you can’t see but will fully appreciate on viewing is the leading edge, fully insulated MAXRaft foundation system combined with Ecomaster’s in-slab heating and Moisturemaster’s smart energy ventilation system. This ensures the home is maintained at a comfortable temperature year round at a fraction of the cost of traditional underfloor heating systems. Montrose is exclusively the only show home in Canterbury featuring this technically advanced insulated foundation system.

Delivering these very special homes with optimum efficiency is very important to managing director Steve Reeves and his team. Clarity of communication to clients, suppliers and everyone involved in the building is the key foundation to ensuring productivity is kept at optimum while allowing everyone in the process to be fully informed. Viewing the new Lincoln show home on Edward St will allow you to fully appreciate the degree of technical know-how and finesse that signifies the exemplary standards that Montrose Design and Build For Life will replicate when creating their valued client’s dream home for life.
