Drivers not roads blamed for crashes BY TOM DOUDNEY

Bad driving rather than bad intersections, are behind the increasing number of crashes on Main South Rd, Selwyn’s top cop says. Senior Sergeant Pete Stills said he believed people were getting frustrated with the fact that the road was becoming busier and failing to adjust their expectations as traffic flows increased. This could mean drivers trying to pull out into tight gaps or failing to look carefully instead

of showing patience. “It’s quite frustrating because a lot of motorists are blaming the road but it’s not the road, it’s the drivers,” he said. “It’s carrying a big volume of traffic and it had increased markedly in recent years and lots of people haven’t adjusted their driving behaviour.” About 20,000 vehicles a day use the road. Senior Sergeant Stills said the intersection of Main South Rd and Weedons Ross Rd was not espe-

cially dangerous, in spite of a run of crashes there. Last week there were two serious crashes there in the space of 24 hours. The first crash, at 8.30pm on Wednesday, resulted in two people being hospitalised. Three people were injured, two seriously, after the second crash, at 6.10pm on Thursday. A New Zealand Transport Agency spokeswoman said that for the five years from 2010 to 2014 there were one fatal and one serious in-

jury crash within a 100m radius of the intersection. In May Selwyn District Councillor Peter Hill said the intersections along Main South Rd and Jones Rd which runs parallel were too complicated and something needed to be done. Meanwhile, the district council has admitted that a Rolleston intersection expected to get 200 per cent busier over the next 10 years is already not coping with present levels of traffic. •Turn to page 2

Your odds of surviving a heart attack on the road and in the pub just got better. Two defibrillators have been placed in Lincoln police vehicles and another in the Famous Grouse Hotel. They were donated by Selwyn Community Watch which applied to Pub Charity for the $7935 in funding for the defibrillators to be located where they could benefit the Lincoln community. Selwyn Community Watch secretary Kerry Thomason said the idea had come about because a lot of Lincoln businesses shut at 5pm and it was thought that more assistance should be available if someone

had a medical emergency after this time. “I talked to the police about defibrillators and they didn’t have any so I thought maybe we can do something,” he said. “We felt if we could get some defibrillators they would be based with the police, because they are primary response vehicles for any accident, and one for the hotel because it is open all hours at different times and everybody knows where it is.” Mr Thomason said the new defibrillators would make it a lot safer for everybody in the community. Senior Constable Andy

Williamson said police were appreciative of the move. “We go to everything from serious motor vehicle accidents, industrial accidents, attempted suicides and we are quite often the first on the scene for medical events, so even if we only get to save one more life, it’s all worth it really, isn’t it?” Famous Grouse Hotel publican Craig Bradford said having the defibrillator was fantastic. “If I had one in the past I probably could have used it four or five times just with people having turns and so on.”

Drivers not roads blamed for crashes •From page 1 District council asset manager transportation Andrew Mazey said the intersection’s current reliance on using stop controls to manage increasing traffic flows was coming under pressure in peak periods such as in the evening. “Traffic modelling has determined by 2026 traffic volumes on both Hoskyns Rd and Jones Rd in the vicinity of the intersection will increase on average 200 per cent from current volumes. This means around 11,000 vehicles per day would be passing through the intersection from both along Jones and Hoskyns Rds compared to about 3500 at the moment.” Mr Mazey said the district council hoped to finalise plans to upgrade the intersection, probably by introducing traffic signals, by the end of the year.

Long life expectancy for Selwyn residents BY GABRIELLE STUART The average Selwyn resident will live longer than people in any other area of Canterbury, according to Statistics New Zealand. But local doctors think that may be because of a younger population, rather than any secret to long life. The statistics show how long the average baby born today might live. For children in Selwyn, that is 83 years for boys, or 87 years for girls. In Christchurch the average life expectancy is just 79 years for males, or 83 years for females. But the difference may be due to people moving into the city when they get older. Rolleston Medical Centre practice manager Vicki Bool said the majority of patients at the centre were young families.

LIFE EXPECTANCY Within Canterbury Men: Selwyn – 83.0 Waimakariri – 80.9 Hurunui – 80.2 Christchurch city – 79.4 Ashburton – 79.2 Women: Selwyn – 86.5 Waimakariri – 84.2 Hurunui – 83.7 Ashburton – 83.5 Christchurch city – 83.1

The majority of new houses being built in the area have three or four bedrooms, which is likely to make them less appealing to older people. Being further from the city and from hospitals is another factor which

might drive older residents away. Andrew Rawstron, a doctor at Leeston Medical Centre, said the population was more mixed in Leeston than it was in Rolleston. He said some patients did still

move to the city when they reached a certain age, or if they had ongoing medical problems. But he believed people’s more active lifestyles in Selwyn did play a part in their higher life expectancy. “A lot of people keep farming over the age of 65, and keeping active I think is very important. If elderly people continue to be active doing volunteer work or paid work I think their well-being is better.” But he said it was a double-edged sword. Physical work meant people were more likely to injure themselves, and the long hours could also take a toll. “I wouldn’t say dairy farming particularly is a healthy life. It’s a poor lifestyle choice just for the hours they do, especially as a lot more farms are becoming more corporate.”

A new rural fire brigade based in Darfield is to be created and the hunt for volunteers has already begun. Selwyn currently has two rural fire brigades, located at Arthurs Pass and West Melton. District council emergency management officer Carrie Lakin said the Darfield Rural Fire Force was being set up so that the rural areas would have more capacity to cope with callouts during the busy summer period. “The time commitment can vary depending on the amount of time an individual has available,” she said. “All fire callouts are routed to the New Zealand Fire Service who call on the nearest brigade with suitable equipment to respond to calls. In a large fire, urban and rural volunteer fire fighters often work together to control fires.” Volunteer rural fire fighters are provided with ongoing training and protective equipment. Before volunteers can attend fires they need to complete two days training and receive NZQA rural fire qualifications. Once qualified, most brigades also train for two to three hours once a week or fortnight. Anyone interested in finding out more about becoming a volunteer can phone the district council on 318 8338, 347 2800 or email ruralfire@selwyn.govt. nz

At 63 and still taking running, Eighteen years ago, Bryan McCorkindale took up running on the spur of the moment. Now 63, the Tai Tapu resident has broken the world record for distance covered by someone his age in a 12-hour race, and has his sights set on breaking the 24-hour record later this year. Andrew Voerman reports Bryan McCorkindale’s first run barely took him anywhere. Around 1997, he had been sitting behind the wheel of a truck, when he felt his belly bouncing up and down as he went over speed bumps, and decided to do something about it. “So I just pulled on a pair of shorts that night, and got 500m down the road and I’d absolutely had it, so I had to walk home, and I was very embarrassed about that.” Slowly, but surely, he built up his capacity – running 1km, then 2km, then 10km – to the point where after a year of training, he entered his first marathon, which he ran in a time of 3hr, 27min. Today, his personal best in that event is 2hr, 57min – and he’s also shed more than 20kg, down from 90 to about 67. And he hasn’t stopped at 42.195km either. His move into ultramarathons, which are any race over a distance longer than that, came when he

returned from an overseas holiday in 2009. His wife, Janice, had seen that there was a 100km race on the following weekend, and asked if he wanted to try it out. “That was a big step up from a marathon, but I gave it a go, and that’s when I got hooked.” “It was a race that really suited me, where I didn’t have natural speed, but I could just keep going. There’s a huge amount of pain, and you don’t feel pretty flash afterwards, but it’s the race that I enjoy the most I think.” The next step up was to 100 miles (160.934km), a distance he first attempted in a race around Mt Taranaki in November 2010, where he finished first in a time of 16hr and 16min. Making that leap was a real eye opener, says McCorkindale, who had no idea what he was getting himself into. “There’s a lot to learn in running a long race – just pace judgment, and how you cope men-

tally is a very big part of it. You’re almost thinking as much about how you’re training your mind as you do the rest of your body. “I had no idea what to expect or what I was going to feel. I was totally unprepared for the pain that I was getting into at that stage. That’s probably what shocked me the most, just how much pain there is, but also quite pleasantly, how much you can endure.” That performance saw him selected to represent New Zealand at the Commonwealth 24-hour championships, which were held in Wales in September the following year. In that race, his first ever at that distance, he finished fifth, covering 222.373km, 78m more than fellow New Zealander Wayne Botha. With a third Kiwi, Alexander McKenzie, 6km further back in 11th, their combined efforts were good enough for third in the teams event. He’s completed five 24-hour races altogether – the Commonwealths; three world championships, where his best finish was 89th with a distance of 210.757km, in the Netherlands in 2013, a race run in horrible weather; and one in Sydney in June last year, where he won with a personal best of 223.743km.

fitness to the extreme There’s no way to really prepare for running that distance – he isn’t out running for 12 hours or 24 hours every few weeks – but he does have a training regime that would make most people blanch. He runs every day, mostly on the roads surrounding Tai Tapu, sometimes with Janice, who is also a keen runner. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, he starts each day with an hour on the road – nothing too serious, but no small ask either. On Tuesdays, he does 20km, up and down a hill, over and over again; on Thursdays, he does 24km, putting in a full effort, and on Saturdays, he and Janice like to take to the Port Hills. Then on Sundays, he runs 42km, a distance better known as a marathon. And, he ends every one of those days with 7km to warm down. Over all those runs, he’s figured out a few things about how the sport works – and it begins with pain. “All endurance events, whether it’s running, or climbing, or whatever you’re doing – it’s all about pain management – that’s what stops you, or slows you down, so it’s just a matter of turning that around. “I did a 100km race up in Taupo once, and I got to about 75km and I was thinking to myself – gosh, the further I go, the more it’s going to hurt, and

RECORD BREAKER: Bryan McCorkindale broke the world record for men aged 60-64 in a 12-hour race in Sydney last month. if you turn that around to the more I hurt, the further I’ve gone, suddenly you’re almost seeking that pain, because you know it’s going to get you that much further.” McCorkindale called on that lesson in June, when he headed

AMY ADAMS

to Sydney, to attempt to break the 12-hour world record for men aged 60-64, which was held by Frenchman Max Courtillon, who ran 132.167km in April 1988. It has stood for so long that at first he was a little bit wary. “You can guarantee that a lot of

people have tried and failed to get there; and that made me think, well, if they’ve failed, then why do I think I can do it? “But I thought it was worth giving a go.” McCorkindale went across the ditch with a clear game plan.

He would run 68km in the first six hours, at a speed of 11.3km/h; then 32km in the next three hours, and 32 more in the final three hours, dropping his pace down to 10.7km/h. That, he says, is almost exactly how it unfolded. He built up enough of a buffer that he was able to get away with two slow laps to finish, running 132.565km, beating the old mark by a smidge under 400m – the equivalent of one lap out of the 331 and a bit he ran in total. Although he was aware that he’d done it straight away, he knew it would take a while to sink in. “You’re so exhausted, but I do remember my daughter saying to me, ‘are you happy?’ and I said ‘I will be.’” McCorkindale has one race left at these extreme distances, a 24-hour event in Auckland at the start of October, where he will again attempt to break the agegroup record. He will be challenging a mark of Courtillon’s for the second time this year, of 240.790km, which was set in the UK in 1990. He needs to improve on his current personal best by 17km, which he knows will be a challenge. “Getting the 12-hour record, I felt was reasonably achievable; getting the 24, everything’s going to have to be absolutely perfect.”

Online support for businesses employing emergency personnel CLOSED: The Blue Gum Lodge Motel has shut after more than 50 years.

Motel closes doors for motorway BY TOM DOUDNEY After 52 years of service there will be no more vacancies at Blue Gum Lodge Motel. The motel on Main South Rd, north of Rolleston, closed its doors for good on Friday because its land is needed to make way for Stage 2 of the Southern Motorway. Construction of the motorway is set to begin early next year. Owners Michele and John Thomson say they are moving on with no regrets after 10 years in charge. The Crown bought the motel land three years ago, about a year after plans for the layout of the motorway were made public. “Once the plan came out we knew it was eventually going to happen and I think the road is definitely needed,” Mrs Thomson said. “The traffic over the last 10 years

has just increased and the accident rate has increased too.” They had not initially been thrilled with the prospect of moving. “At first we thought ‘oh god, this place was doing really well’ but realistically it is for the best and it has been a good outcome in the end.” The couple have bought The Bridge Restaurant and Bar in Prebbleton and will take over the running of it from Monday. Mrs Thomson said they were looking forward to it. They had a lot of fond memories of their time at the motel and had made many good friends. While the motel has been closed, it has not yet been abandoned. Motel manager Dot McDonald will continue to live on site for the time being, as will four couples living in their own caravans.

A Kirwee firefighter and his wife have come up with a novel idea to support businesses which employ emergency services personnel. For such businesses, call-outs mean staff often have to drop everything and run when their pager goes off. VollyPages, an online directory started by Paul and Sue Robinson, lists businesses around New Zealand that employ volunteer emergency service workers. Its aim is to create a supportive network to offset the hidden cost of employee absenteeism. Mr Robinson is a member of the Kirwee Volunteer Fire Brigade. Previously he spent five years volunteering for New Zealand Land Search and Rescue in Nelson. “There’s around 50,000 volunteers working in the emergency services sector in New Zealand – from the New Zealand fire and rural fire services, St John’s Ambulance and search and rescue to Red Cross and coastguard services,” Mr Robinson said. “In 2013, 9000 LandSAR volunteers donated 14,357 hours to rescue operations and spent 65,358 hours training for rescue operations. That’s a lot of time away from the desk or the workshop, and the businesses that employ these volunteers get no compensation apart from knowing that their staff member is out there potentially saving someone’s life.” Mr Robinson said that the hid-

den cost to businesses could at times add to financial pressures and he would like to see volunteers from all emergency services providers band together to support the businesses that support the work they do. “Volunteers, organisations, friends, families and the public can use VollyPages to find business services and products, knowing that the listed businesses employ volunteers.

ORGANIC HORTICULTURE COURSES

Instruction in organic horticulture is now well established at the Lincoln-based Organic Training College. The next year-long course, which begins on 17th August, will be the eighth intake for the college. Students need no prior qualifications or experience to commence Year One and can study full or parttime. Those who have some horticultural background can go straight into Year Two. An added appeal of the course is that all fees are under $500, and full time students are eligible to apply for a loan or allowance through Studylink.

Course Director Bill Martin says it works well to start the course year in the spring. “The organic horticulture course is all about growing so we want to start the course in spring when it is the right time to begin planting.” Year One students get plenty of hands on training in subjects such as sowing and planting organic crops, soil management

and composting. The Year Two students have the option of using land and facilities on the Biological Husbandry Unit (BHU) Farm to grow and sell their own certified produce – a semicommercial venture that gives students a real taste of organic horticulture as a business. The students grow vegetables under the guidance of a mentor and sell them at a weekly stall at Lincoln University. “The Year 2 programme gives the students experience in a commercial environment without any risk. It’s the icing on the cake for a lot of the students here,” says Bill Martin.

ORGANIC Horticultural Courses

As well as the year-long organic horticulture courses a distance (correspondence) programme in organics is also available.

Soldiers of Selwyn

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

Many died around final days 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. Lance Corporal Jesse Gilbert John Chapman Jesse Gilbert John Chapman was born at Hororata on April 5, 1887, to Neave and Mary Jane Chapman. He was a contract farmer. After enlisting on April 4, 1916, Chapman married Amelia Miller Phillips at her mother’s home at Glenroy on June 20. His daughter Ella Phillips Chapman was born after he left for service and they never met. Chapman was assigned to the 15th Reinforcements, Canterbury Infantry Battalion, C Company and embarked for Devonport on October 3. In France, he joined the 2nd Battalion Canterbury Regiment in the field on November 8. On June 10, 1917, he was evacuated to hospital sick with urticaria, otherwise known as hives. Four days later he was able to return to his unit. Chapman was appointed Lance Corporal on October 29, replacing another who had been sent to

hospital. He was detached to HQ in February of 1918, presumably for training. In May he spent time in hospital with influenza. Chapman was wounded during the action around Bapaume. He died of his wounds on the following day, August 29, 1918, while in the advanced dressing station. He is buried in the Achiet-leGrand Communal Cemetery Extension, Pas-de-Calais, and remembered on the Hororata War Memorial. Private Daniel Joseph Foley Daniel Joseph Foley was born at Burwood on August 2, 1889, to Maurice and Julia A. Foley. He was working as a farm labourer at Springston before enlisting on June 22, 1917. He had previously been rejected for service in July, 1916, as he had deformed toes. When examined it was the second toe on his left foot and he claimed it “never troubled him” and that he was desperate to get into camp. This time he was passed fit. Foley was assigned to 31st Rein-

forcements, Canterbury Infantry Regiment, C Company, and embarked for Liverpool on November 16, 1917. In France, he joined the 1st Battalion Canterbury Regiment in the field on March 28. Three days later he was posted to 13th Company. A further three days later he was killed in action, aged 29, on September 3, the last day of the Battle of Bapaume. The New Zealand Division was involved in what became the beginning of the Hundred Days Offensive and the turning point in the war. Foley is buried in the Beaumetz Crossroads Cemetery. He is remembered on the Malvern County War Memorial and the West Melton Roll of Honour. Corporal Rowland Francis Mulholland Rowland Francis Mulholland was born at Darfield on May 29, 1889, to Daniel and Frances Mulholland. He was farming at Darfield and Hororata before enlisting on August 22, 1916. Mulholland was assigned to New Zealand Rifle Brigade Reinforcements, G Company, and embarked for Devonport on December 30, 1916. In England he was assigned to 3rd Battalion Auckland Regiment and left with them for France on May 28. On January 1, 1918, he was appointed Lance Corporal. After 10 days leave in Paris in February, he was attached to the XXII CRC. He was then posted to D Company of the 1st Battalion, 3rd NZ Rifle Brigade in the field on February 23. He was promoted to Corporal on July 10. Mulholland was killed in action

on August 30, 1918, during the fighting in the Bancourt part of the battle to gain control of the Bapaume area. The 1st Battalion came under heavy rifle and machine gun fire, suffering many casualties. He is buried in Bancourt British Cemetery and remembered on the Malvern County War Memorial. Private Patrick J. Aiken Patrick J. Aiken was born at Leeston on June 3, 1887, to David and Mary Aiken. He played football for Leeston for several seasons and was working as a barman at Leeston before enlisting on September 12, 1917. He had previously been rejected for service because of rheumatism and was treated for that while in camp. His teeth also required work. Aiken was initially assigned to 39th Reinforcements but on March 13, 1918, he was transferred to the 40th Reinforcements, E Company. In April, while at the hospital Camp at Featherston, he was twice absent without leave. For this he forfeited pay and was confined to barracks. Aiken embarked from Wellington on July 10 but while at sea he again had trouble with conduct. This time it was considered bad enough to warrant being shackled for two hours a day. He died at sea on September 4, 1918, of influenza, five days before he was due to disembark. He was buried at sea the same day. In New Zealand he is remembered on the Canterbury Provincial Memorial at Ruru Lawn Cemetery in Bromley, Christchurch. Private Samuel Allen Samuel Allen was born at Killinchy on May 11, 1880, to Alexander Allen.

He was farming at Creamery House, Killinchy, before enlisting on November 17, 1915. His brother James enlisted at the same time and survived the war. The brothers were originally assigned to the 10th Reinforcements but were transferred to the 11th Reinforcements on February 17, 1916. Allen trained at Featherstone where he had a bout of Influenza just before Christmas, 1915. He embarked for Suez on April 1. He was in Egypt for eight days before leaving for France. He arrived and was posted to the 13th Company, 1st Battalion Canterbury Infantry at Amentiers on July 18. He was wounded on September 25 but was able to rejoin his unit on August 3. Allen was detached to 2nd NZ Infantry Brigade Headquarters on September 6, 1917. He was given leave in Paris and rejoined his unit on July 10, 1918. He was wounded in the leg on August 28 but was able to rejoin the Canterbury Infantry on September 4. Allen was killed in action on October 8, 1918. At that time the New Zealand Division were part of the attacks on the remainder of the German Hindenburg Line around Cambrai. He is buried in Marcoing British Cemetery and remembered on the Ellesmere County War Memorial’s Leeston plaque. Private David Andrew McGill David Andrew McGill was born at Prebbleton on March 4, 1886, to Andrew and Helen McGill. He was farming at Prebbleton before enlisting on October 14, 1916, and being assigned to the New Zealand Rifle Brigade Reinforcements, G Company. McGill embarked for Devonport on January 19, 1917.

of battle for Bapaume In England, he was assigned to the 3rd Battalion, Auckland Regiment and posted to 16th Company at Codford. He left for France on May 28. McGill suffered a severe gunshot wound to his back on June 14, putting him out of action for more than a month, before rejoining his battalion in the field on August 29. He was detached for a short while to an Australian unit on January 18, 1918, then attached to the XXII Corp Reinforcement camp on February 8, before being transferred again to 3rd WGRB on February 21. Finally he was attached to the Entrenching Battalion on March 17. McGill was evacuated to hospital on May 12 but no illness was noted. He was treated and sent to the convalescent depot on May 23 and discharged to Etaples a few days later. Finally he arrived back with the Entrenching Battalion on June 17. A month later he was sent on leave for two weeks in England. On August 27 he was reunited with the Auckland Regiment, this time in the 2nd Battalion. Serving with them he was killed in action on September 1, 1918. This was the closing day of the Battle of Bapaume. McGill is buried in the Bancourt British Cemetery and remembered on the Prebbleton War Memorial. Rifleman Francis Nicholas Matthews Francis Nicholas Matthews was born at Springston on January 28, 1889, to Nicholas Trahair and Julia Matthews. He was a farm labourer at Springston before enlisting on

May 28, 1915, and being assigned to the Advance Party, 2nd New Zealand Rifle Brigade, C Company. Matthews embarked for Egypt, arriving on October 26, 1915. He joined the 2nd Battalion, New Zealand Rifle Brigade on November 21 and proceeded to Ismailia on January 17, 1916. He embarked for France on April 6. He was granted leave in England on June 16, 1917, and sent for medical treatment at Codford. It was February 19, 1918, before he was well enough to march into Brocton, the base depot of the Rifle Brigade. Matthews left for France on March 20 and was transferred to the 2nd Battalion, 3rd Rifle Brigade, which he joined in the field on April 9. He fought with them for five months through some pivotal days of the war but was reported missing on September 9. On this day a preliminary attack was made to weaken the German hold on Trescault Ridge and Spur. The regimental history notes that “the artillery response to our opening barrage was heavy and well-directed, while the country over which our advancing troops were to pass was swept by the heaviest machine-gun fire yet experienced.” Presumably it was this barrage which wounded Matthews. His status was changed to wounded after he was found to have been taken up by the 53rd Field Ambulance with wounds to his head, face, abdomen and left side. Matthews died on September 10, 1918, aged 29. He is buried in RocquignyEquancourt Road British Cemetery, Manancourt. He is remembered on the Ellesmere County War Memorial’s Irwell plaque and the Springston War Memorial.

Lance Corporal George Amos Johnson George Amos Johnson was born at Lakeside on April 4, 1896, to Charles and Beatrice Johnson. He was working as a labourer at Lakeside on May 30, 1916, and was assigned to 17th Reinforcements, Canterbury Infantry Battalion, C Company. Johnson embarked for Devonport on September 23. In France, he joined the 2nd Battalion Canterbury Regiment in the field on January 7, 1917. He was sent to hospital sick on February 23 with mumps at St Omer, before being discharged to duty on March 15 and rejoining his unit two days later. Johnson landed in hospital again on October 16 after being affected by mustard gas. He was injured badly enough that he was transferred to England and admitted to Brockenhurst Hopsital. It was April 26, before he was able to return to the field with the Canterbury Regiment. He was appointed Lance Corporal on July 1. Johnson suffered gunshot wounds to his legs on August 25 when the Canterbury Regiment were involved in the savage fighting to drive the Germans out of Bapaume. He died of his wounds on September 18, 1918. He is buried in the St Sever Cemetery Extension, Rouen, and remembered on the Ellesmere County War Memorial’s Leeston plaque. Private William Smyth William Smyth was born at Killinchy on October 2, 1895, to William and Ellen Smyth. He was working as a farm hand

for his father before enlisting on February 8, 1916 and being assigned to the 13th Reinforcements, Canterbury Infantry Battalion, C Company. In England, Smyth was posted to the Canterbury Regiment on July 28 but the next day he was sent to Tidworth Military hospital with German Measles. It was a month before he was well enough to leave for France. From there he joined the 1st Battalion CIR in the field on September 22. He served with them throughout the following year until he was detached to the School of Instruction on September 9, 1917, for two weeks training. Shortly after his return, Smyth suffered a gunshot wound to his thigh on October 12. He was evacuated to England on October 22 and spent much of the next two months in hospital. He was sent to France and joined the 2nd Entrenching Battalion on May 19. He was sent to hospital on June 12 with pyrexia of unknown origin, usually meaning trench fever. Admitted to the No 1 American General Hospital he was treated and then sent to convalesce. Although he suffered a relapse on July 3, he was finally well enough to rejoin the Entrenching Battalion in the field on August 11. From there Smyth was transferred back to the Canterbury Infantry Regiment, 2nd Battalion and posted to 13th Company on August 28. He went into action with them during the fighting on the Hindenburg Line around Cambrai and was killed in action on October 8, 1918, aged 23, at Le Cateau. He is buried in the Honnechy British Cemetery, Le Cateau, and remembered on the Ellesmere County War Memorial’s Leeston plaque.

Trooper Thomas William Withers Thomas William Withers was born at Southbridge on September 12, 1896, to Thomas John and Margaret Withers. He was employed at Oakleigh Estate, before enlisting on February 2, 1917. He had previous military experience with the Canterbury Yeomanry Cavalry, 1st Mounted Rifles. Withers was assigned to the 29th Reinforcements, Mounted Rifles Brigade, and embarked for Suez on November 13. He was posted to the Canterbury Mounted Rifles Squadron based at Moascar and then three months later transferred to the New Zealand Mounted Rifles Brigade. He joined them in the field and was posted to the 10th Squadron on April 17 and then to the 1st squadron on August 10. However, on September 27, he was sent to hospital with fever. He arrived at the 34th Casualty Clearing Hospital in Jerusalem on October 7 but was one of the many to die of malignant malaria. He died on October 9, 1918, aged 22. Withers is buried in the Jerusalem War Cemetery, Palestine. It must have given some comfort to the family of a sincere Christian such as Withers to know that he lay in a cemetery at the north end of the famous Mount of Olives and to the west of Mt Scopus. In New Zealand, he is remembered on the Ellesmere County War Memorial and the Southbridge School Roll of Honour.

Fundraiser for child’s treatment BY TOM DOUDNEY Honor Griffiths (right) is bright, bubbly and in many ways like most four-year-old girls – but with one important difference. She has cerebral palsy. Now her community in West Melton has stepped up to help fund potentially life-changing treatment in Australia. Because of her cerebral palsy, Honor can’t walk unaided and needs more help than most children her age with tasks such as toileting, feeding and getting dressed. While other children are running, climbing and jumping, she uses a walker and a wheelchair to get around. Honor’s parents Tony and Erin Griffiths couldn’t bring themselves to ask for help, so staff at West Melton Plunket and members of Erin’s netball team got together to set up a Givealittle page to take donations. By yesterday morning, the page had already raised $6210 of the $10,000 needed to fund a new round of therasuit therapy in Adelaide. Mr Griffiths said the family were amazed at the generosity shown to them. “We don’t really like to be in the limelight but at the end of the day it has been pretty humbling. We have only been in West Melton for four years and for the community to get behind us is

incredible really.” In April, Honor and Erin went to Adelaide to take part in three weeks of therasuit therapy and found that Honor made good progress in strengthening the muscles needed if she is to walk on her own in future. Mr Griffiths said it was important for Honor to have more treatment if she wanted to make progress but the therapy was not available in New Zealand. The family hoped to take Honor back to Adelaide for a second round of treatment next year. Three weeks of therasuit therapy will cost about $10,000. A quiz night has also been organised as a fundraiser for Honor and will be held at the West Melton Rugby Club on August 29. Tickets have sold out but anyone interested in providing auction prizes can contact organisers via the In Her Honour Facebook page.

Exhibition an insight into war The stories of four Cantabrians during World War 1 are told in a new touring exhibition on display at Leeston Library. Canterbury and the First World War is at Leeston for the next three months and will travel to libraries around Selwyn, Waimakariri and Hurunui during the next two years. The Canterbury Museum exhibition includes photographs, letters and military items belonging to soldiers Arthur Elderton from Amberley and Charles Ivory from Oxford. Audio entries from the diary of 16-year-old Cashmere schoolgirl, Alison MacGibbon (nee McLeod) tell of life during the last months of the war and the spread of influenza through Christchurch. Also on display are photographs

and stamps which belonged to Sir Robert Heaton Rhodes who is known not only for his political roles and the garden at his home, Otahuna, but also for his stamp collection now held at Canterbury Museum. The touring exhibition features a 1936 first day cover marking the 21st anniversary of Anzac Day, as well as Sir Robert’s photograph album including images of the declaration of war in Wellington. Sir Robert, who had already served in the South African War in 1902, was MP for Ellesmere and held a number of public positions during the conflict, including that of postmaster general. In 1921 he gave 70 acres to the residents of Tai Tapu for a park. The

gates to the park still stand as one of the Canterbury’s memorials to those in the area who served in the World War 1. Exhibition curator Sarah Murray said that as a nation, New Zealand suffered more casualties during World War 1 than in any other subsequent conflict. More than 18,000 died and 40,000 were wounded. “For those at home, letters, diaries, photographs and other mementos, provided a welcome connection to their loved ones serving overseas,” she said. “A hundred years on these items give us a remarkable insight into the lives of Cantabrians during the conflict, both at home and on the front line.”

Selwyn-Waihora Zone Committee

Farmers are leading a quiet revolution By Donna Field, chair of the Ashburton Zone Committee

Canterbury Water Management Strategy There is a quiet revolution going on out there. Who would have believed two or three years ago that farmers would be gathering around kitchen tables to prepare farm environment plans. Not only that but they are also finding the experience to be a positive one. Farm environment plans – or FEPs – are a way for farmers to identify how nutrients and water is lost from their property and put in place actions to reduce such losses. It is just good business.

Nutrients and water cost money and the more you can keep on the property and recycle them through the farming system the cheaper your fertiliser and/or your electricity bill.

are beginning to identify a variety of small things, such as cleaning a drain in a certain way, may be all that is needed to improve food gathering opportunities.

FEPs can be a good marketing tool: for example farmers on Banks Peninsula are preparing FEPs, not because they have to, but because they see FEPs as giving a point of positive difference for their products.

FEPs are an important tool to help develop trust between the rural and urban communities.

FEPs are an important tool to identify other values such as biodiversity and cultural values. Gathering food from the wild has always been a big part of Māori culture and some farmers

Let us face it - for years it has been said to the urban community: “trust us we are doing the right thing”. But unfortunately all that the urban community see are low river levels, algae blooms and health warnings at their favourite swimming spot. Urban dwellers are not seeing positive environmental results from that trust.

FEPs will record actions farmers are taking and provide concrete evidence we are operating at industry based good management practice and above. There will be facts and figures to record our efforts. This will help build credibility both at home and overseas. Let’s not hide our efforts under a Matagouri bush – let’s tell our story.

To find out more about FEPs visit www.ecan.govt.nz/lwrp click on “About the Plan” and then “Information for Farmers”.

Steps to keep up with farming By Environment Canterbury Things are difficult on the farm with the decrease in dairy pay-outs likely to affect not only dairy farmers but also the wider community as well as supporting land uses and service industries. On top of this most farmers are now subject to managing to nutrient limits. Our best advice for farmers is to: • Keep up with what’s happening in your area – attend meetings, talk to others • Collect your nitrogen loss data so you can prepare a nutrient budget using OVERSEER® • Prepare a Farm Environment Plan (FEP) • Take a look at the industry agreed Good Management Practices - think about where your farm sits in relation to these. A Farm Environment Plan is a great way to record and demonstrate all the good things already happening on your farm. Your FEP is a way of identifying the potential environmental risks on your farm and demonstrating how you are managing them. Your FEP is unique to your property. It should align with your farm system and your goals and aspirations.

Workshops are a good way to find out more Recently Beef + Lamb NZ, with assistance from Environment Canterbury Land Management Advisors, conducted a FEP workshop for the high country farmers affected by the sensitive lake zone provisions under the Land and Water Regional Plan. The Beef + Lamb facilitator, James Hoban, did a great job and guided the farmers through the process of identifying potential environmental risk areas on their farms and coming up with an action plan that fits in with their farm business. Many of the actions in the FEP are low cost actions that not only benefit the environment but can also provide on farm financial benefits.

On-farm fieldays – such as this one held last year on the award-winning Slee farm – are a very useful way for farmers to find out about new ideas.

Farmers who attended the day were surprised how simple and straightforward it was to write their own FEPs with guidance from James and the Land Management Advisors. Philip Todhunter from Lake Heron Station commented: “A worthwhile day run by Beef + Lamb NZ with support from Environment Canterbury’s Land Management Advisors to help us prepare our own Farm Environment Plans”.

For further assistance and advice contact your industry representative (many industry bodies now have Environment Canterbury approved templates) or else the Environment Canterbury Land Management Advisor for your zone (call us on 0800 324 636). Brought to you by Environment Canterbury working with

High country farmers at the recent Beef + Lamb FEP workshop in Methven learnt how easy it is to prepare a Farm Environment Plan.

GET AWAY FROM THE COLD

TO FIJI

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.

Sign up to be part of Shakeout Everyone needs to know the right action to take in an earthquake. On Thursday 15 October New Zealanders will have the chance to practice what they would do in a real earthquake as part of a national earthquake drill called Shakeout. Shakeout was first held in 2012 and 1.3million New Zealanders took part in the drill. The 2015 exercise will be the second time Shakeout has been held and we want Selwyn residents to be part of the drill. The advice from experts on what to do in earthquake is simple: · DROP down on your hands and knees. This position protects you from falling items but allows you to move if necessary · COVER your head and neck (and your entire body if possible) under a sturdy table or desk (if it is no more than a few steps away from you). If there is no shelter nearby, get down near an interior wall (or next to low-lying furniture that won’t fall on you), and cover your head and neck with your arms and hands. · HOLD on to your shelter (or your position to protect your head and neck) until the shaking stops. Be prepared to move with your shelter if the shaking moves it around.

Planning to create a new rural fire brigade is underway and the Council is looking for volunteers to be part of a new Darfield Rural Fire Force.

Volunteer rural fire fighters play an extremely important role in the community. In the summer Selwyn often experiences hot, dry weather and strong nor’ west winds mean that fires can quickly spread and threaten lives and property if they are not brought under control by fire crews. Selwyn currently has two rural fire brigades located at Arthur’s Pass and West Melton. “All fire callouts are routed to the New Zealand Fire Service who call on the nearest brigade with suitable equipment to respond to calls,” says Carrie Lakin, Selwyn District Council Emergency Management Support Officer. “In a large fire, urban and rural volunteer fire fighters often work together to control fires.” Carrie says that volunteer rural fire fighters are provided with ongoing training and protective equipment. “Before volunteers can attend fires they complete two days training and receive NZQA rural fire qualifications. Once qualified, most brigades also train for 2-3 hours a week or fortnight.”

“The amount of time volunteers spend attending to fires varies a lot throughout the year. Generally, callouts in winter and spring are limited while during a hot summer fire fighters can be very busy.” John Doherty is the Fire Force Controller for the West Melton Volunteer Rural Fire Force. John says when he joined the unit he had no previous experience or knowledge of what to expect but learnt a lot of new skills from training in the role. “You always work as part of a team and are only given tasks at your current ability so you are never thrown in the deep end,” he says. “Being part of a rural fire unit is very rewarding and is a great way to mix with others in your community.” Carrie Lakin says the Council is hoping to recruit a number of volunteers so that the rural Selwyn district has more capacity to cope with the busy summer periods the district is facing. “The time commitment can vary depending on the amount of time an individual has available.” Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer can phone the Council on 318 8338, 347 2800 or email ruralfire@selwyn.govt.nz

Fashion Quarterly

GRASSROOTS SPORT

from Kim Taylor —Viva La Moda

Summer 2015 / 2016 Fashion Trends With the seasons ready to change again we are already seeing the first of the spring / summer arrivals into store. As with previous seasons there isn’t one clear winner in terms of colour or style, rather an evolving of current trends and the introduction of some new ideas. The pastel trend continues with salmon pink coming to the fore. Colours of the deep blue sea have become a major influence with aqua, cobalt, indigo and teal leading the way and navy continuing as a key base colour. Black and white in various patterns and combinations remains strong and taupe becomes more prevalent for this season. styles and fabrics are nostalgic and romantic with lots of feminine shapely dresses available. Embellishments in the way of beads and sequins remain strong and are being introduced into day wear as well as for evening. Bright colours are emerging with oranges and corals joining the blues, taupes and monochromes.

often with elastic cuffs. skirts are coming back into the fore in various shapes and lengths. Tassles remain a major jewellery trend and are available in all kinds of colours and varieties. metallics remain strong appearing in apparel and footwear so there is no shortage of sparkle and bling to liven up the season. Labels such as Augustine and Charlo continue to provide more floaty silhouettes in vibrant colours, Ketze Ke offers relaxed and casual edgy weekend wear and labels like Artstyle, sao Paulo, and Pink Ruby offer special occasion glamour. Vassalli continues to provide everyday must haves and LTB and Hailwood have your on trend funky jeans needs completely covered. Come on in to Viva La moda and be prepared to get excited about the fashion arriving for the coming season!

Patchwork fabrics stacked high at

The Sewing Room

W

hen Colleen and Maureen purchased The Sewing Room at Darfield back in December 1997, they produced most of the items they sold. “We made pot mitts, oven cloths, aprons, jewellery bags and holders, mug mats and babies’ bibs which are still one of the most popular items produced at The Sewing Room,” says Colleen. Maureen and Colleen collected many delightful materials, adding to their range all the time. As their collection grew, word got around that a good selection of fabrics for quilting could be found at The Sewing Room. Over the years, people have come from far and wide to purchase their fabrics which are stacked so high they now reach the ceiling. “We’ve hardly had to advertise these fabrics. The patchwork community is a very social group of people often combining shopping for fabrics with a holiday or trip out,” says Maureen. “Patchwork customers often comment on our diverse range.”

Top tasks to complete Rachel Vogan talks you through what to be doing in the garden now

WINTER HERBS

With the shortest day behind us, you have so much to look forward to in the garden, and with more daylight there is plenty to be getting on with when time and weather permits.

Hardy, healthy and packed full of flavour, a number of mainstay, evergreen herbs can be planted now. These include thyme, rosemary, sage and bay. Thyme comes is a range of varieties. Some, such as lemon thyme, have citrus notes, whereas pizza thyme packs a garlic, oregano and onion flavour. Rosemary varieties vary in habit, rather than flavour, with the carpeting types being perfect for low tubs and growing down banks and walls. The upright versions are perfect for hedging and clipped topiaries. As for sage, the foliage may vary in colour but the flavour is pretty much the same. With bay, all you need to remember is to keep it somewhere you’ll be reminded to use it. All Tidy up the of these herbs are happy tool shed. in tubs and large urns. Avoid those fiddly little herb planters for these bigger herbs; they don’t provide enough Now is the ideal time to book in some repairs, maintenance and space for the roots TLC for your garden tools. Set aside all those ones with wonky handles, bent tines or blunt blades to repair and sharpen. Make to develop. a list of what essentials you require for the upcoming season and then shop around for the best deals. It is always wise to invest Plant hardy carefully in well-crafted strong tools, with good handles (stainlesss winter herb steel blades where possible), and a guarantee of durability. Taking now. the cheap option in the tool department usually costs you in the long run, in either time or frustration when something snaps, bends or breaks.

TOOL TIME

VEGETABLES

Potato seed spuds are in the shops now, and whilst it is far too early to be planting them out, you can be thinking about preparing your soil for next season’s plot (if your soil isn’t too boggy, that is). Don’t panic about buying your seed spuds too early as they will be in the shops for a few months. Broad beans are shooting up, now, and need to be staked. Parsnips will lose all their big, outer leaves, and consolidate into little tufts of green. They hold well in the soil over winter, so dig as required. Blanche in hot water, and freeze in a free-flow style to enjoy as you wish.

before spring arrives BEES

STRAWBERRIES

Like ladybirds, honeybees live in colonies, and overwinter by hunkering down in a hive or in a nest they have devised. Usually, they feed off the honey stores built up over the season; however, this can run short if hives have been overharvested. To help bees through this difficult time, plant plenty of flowers to provide yearround food for them.

Winter sweet is one of the quintessential winter-flowering fragrant shrubs.

Dianthus ‘Candy Floss’ has fragrant blooms.

Harvesting sweet, juicy strawberries may seem like months away when you’re in the middle of winter, but now is the time to take some action to ensure you have the best possible crop for next season. Lift and divide existing strawberry plants; remove dead leaves and old runners, and prune out any dead stems. Before replanting, heap loads of strawberry potting mix or compost onto the soil, then sprinkle in strawberry fertiliser and fork through.Next, replant the divisions, about 25cm apart. If planting out new strawberry beds, do the same, but when choosing your new plants, look for ones that have strong leaf growth. Don’t worry about the flower buds yet, the winter frost gets most of these now. The winter chill stimulates the flower bud set for the season, so the sooner your beds are done, the better for you.

IN FLOWER NOW LADYBIRDS

Did you know that ladybirds overwinter in small clusters in dry pockets and corners of the garden? This could be in the nook of the garden shed, or under some logs or garden structures and statues. Sometimes, they hide in rose hips, nut shells or inside pine cones. Once a few ladybirds find the perfect spot, they exude a ‘safety’ pheromone, which indicates to other ladybirds that this is a safe haven in which to nestle for the winter.

Dianthus ‘Candy Floss’ is a new, glorious, fragrant, miniature carnation, with the most delicate frilly pink blooms. This little charmer is happy in pots or tubs, even inside in a well-lit situation, and is hardy enough to cope with hard frosts and winter chill. From the same family as the white variety, ‘Memories’, this one is sure to find its way into the hearts of many gardeners. Full sun is its only necessity. Winter sweet is packing a punch at the moment, too. With its rather inconspicuous habit, it is easy to walk past until the perfume intoxicates you. Trim back after flowering to create the stems for the following season’s flowers.

It’s Strawberry Planting Time! Strawberries are a kiwi favourite and now is the time to get them into the garden. Garden beds, raised planters, pots, hanging baskets and other containers are all great places for these wee gems to grow. If you don’t have an area at home to grow them in the ground, head down to your local garden supplies shop and grab a pot or hanging basket. Make sure you get top quality mix to plant into – it will make a big difference to the amount and quality of the fruit you get from your plant. You don’t need a mix that specifically says “Strawberry Mix” on it, our Patio Plus will give you excellent results, as will our Tomato Mix. Yes Tomato Mix! Strawberry and Tomato plants have very similar nutritional requirements. You can also use the strawberry fertiliser (and vice versa) if you have one and not the other! If you are planting into the ground, mix through some Organic Compost with the soil that is there, if you are doing a raised bed, you can use either Vege Garden Mix, or Premium Potting Mix.

Planting

Make sure you give the plants space to thrive. Dig a hole about 10cm deep to ensure the roots become well established and they can spread out to get the essential nutrients and water. Pat the soil firmly around the plant once you have placed it in the hole, water them in and put a layer of peastraw or mulch on top (Super Scree is great for this).

Pest control

As the plant begins to fruit, you will want to put some form of protection over the plants to stop the birds getting the berries. Use a mesh or wire cover so they still get air, water and sunlight.

It’s time to lift and divide existing strawberry plants.

The more nutrition they get, the better they will produce the goods. Use our Strawberry or Tomato fertiliser.

MOTORING

Powerful Renault excites MANUFACTURERS are constantly searching for ways to make their automotive product more appealing. Especially so in terms of fuel efficiency and power output. Just recently I evaluated Renault’s high performance Megane RS265. Not long after I took that car back, I was asked if I wanted to drive the Megane RS275 Limited Edition, as you guessed it, it has a higher output engine. I was smitten with the 265, it was an incredibly fast car and I wouldn’t have thought it needed more power but, as history has served to prove, if an engine can deliver more it will be exploited. So, the Megane RS275 has power outputs of 201kW and 360Nm, the 275 figure relating to European horsepower figures. Power has been increased by 6kW, while the torque figure remains the same. While it would take a very quick driver to notice the difference in power, the end result is that the Megane RS is a desirable sports machine. The test car was also carrying Trophy badges in reference to the one-make Renault Sport racing series. Because of that motorsport connection, the Megane RS lends itself to the odd piece of competition, and it has electronic onboard components such as the RS

In Trophy form the Megane RS lists at $74,990, and for that money, not only do you get a very spirited car, it comes with all the goodies you would expect from a hot hatchback. Major items include Recaro seats, sat nav, Bluetooth with audio streaming, and keyless entry and ignition. Disappointingly, I was presented with rain during the day I elected to go testing. Nevertheless, what the wet roads served to prove is how capable the Megane is in all conditions. All of the mechanical elements are structured so that speed and acceleration are key factors in how the car operates. Yet, at city speeds it is still very drivable, the high torque figure and flexible turbo boost allow for relaxed slow speed driving. When you give the accelerator a bit of a nudge the RS275 squirts quickly to dizzy speeds, and that needs to be kept in check for the car

turbo is boosting hard the engine barks and growls like a racing car, the exhaust note is enticing, all of the elements true to high performance motoring are blended into the RS. There’s no shortage of affordable sports machines available to the Kiwi buyer, especially cars from out of Europe. The Megane RS has a fearsome reputation for its ability as an all-rounder. Personally, I don’t see it much as a serious vehicle for family transport, even though there are four seats, the rear confined and wouldn’t be comfortable for long journeys. Nevertheless, I’d describe it as a selfish car, it rewards the driver who likes to feel a solid boost of turbocharged power, but will still return a 7.5-litre per 100km (38mpg) combined cycle fuel usage claim if treated with respect. I’m left wondering just how much more power Renault can extract from this engine.

Dry as a bone Tackle home dampness problems at their source, and ensure you have adequate home insulation, and heat and ventilate your home properly.

U

nless you've actually looked for the source of the dampness, trying to solve it with dehumidifiers and ventilation systems may just mask the problem rather than actually fix it. If you are having issues with excessive moisture/dampness and poor indoor air quality, follow these steps. If you can get under your house, check floors for signs of dampness there. Look for any mould or mildew. Take some dirt and rub it firmly on your hand; if it stains like mud there is probably too much moisture present. There are several things you can do to fix underfloor damp:

• Check for water getting under the floor from drainage, guttering, downpipes or plumbing problems. • Uncover any vents that may have become blocked by plants, soil or to keep pests out. Clear the subfloor area of any obstructions. • Get vents installed if there aren’t any. • Put a vapour barrier down (i.e. thick polythene sheeting) on the ground to keep moisture in the ground. It also stops the air under the floor from getting damp. Look for leaks in wall and roof claddings and flashings. Also check for leaks in plumbing services, where moisture can penetrate walls or floors near showers and

baths. Such leaks are often hidden and can go unnoticed for a long time. Non-invasive moisture content measurements carried out by a qualified and experienced building surveyor is often the easiest way of finding hidden leaks. If your house has been recently built or renovated, it is quite possible there is still a bit of moisture in some of the construction materials, which need to dry out. This may take a few months. Extra heating and ventilation will assist with this. Avoid drying your clothes inside. It is better to dry them outside in the sun and wind. When the weather doesn’t allow this, use an externally vented clothes dryer. Use lids on pots when cooking to reduce moisture release and to conserve energy. Avoid using unflued gas heaters as they

release large amounts of moisture and toxic combustion gases into your house, which can also be a fire hazard. If you are using a gas heater or LPG portable heater without a vent or flue to the outside, always keep at least one window open to allow fresh air to enter the room. Never use unflued gas heaters in bedrooms. Keep furniture away from external walls. Leave a gap of 10cm or more behind large objects like furniture to avoid mould growing behind them in winter. Regularly check for signs of mould in your home, including hidden areas like wardrobes, under carpets and behind curtains and furniture. Remove mould by spraying with white vinegar, let it set, then wipe with a clean cloth, soap and water. Throw away the cloth afterwards.

GET AWAY FROM THE COLD

TO FIJI

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.

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

A well crafted show home

L

ooking through show homes is fun and especially helpful when in the market for a new home. They provide lots of wonderful ideas on house designs and fit-outs. Artisan Homes’ show home at Faringdon in Rolleston is one such example. It has been attracting considerable interest not only for its great layout but also its clever landscaping. “People who visit our show home often say it seems a lot larger than it appears from the street,” comments Rob Jones, owner of Artisan Homes South. “They really fall in love with this house as it has a nice homely feel.” The Novara home has been designed to capture natural light and sun, making it a warm and friendly home and one that offers the potential to save on electricity. It is suitable for a family as it is neither too large nor too small and its appealing 249-square-metre layout complements the 800sqm section on which it stands. On entering the house, one passes through a pleasant and spacious entryway that also links a true standard double garage to the rest of the house. Inside, there is spacious living where the kitchen is centrestage to the dining and family living spaces, with a cosy separate media room at one end fitted with gas fire and a wall-hung flat screen television above. Centrally located and adjacent to the living room is a large study nook which overlooks the garden. This can be part of the living zone or closed off to provide seclusion, with LED strip lighting and quality joinery making it an excellent work space. The wraparound nature of the Novara design means the bedrooms are separate, secluded and almost in a wing of their own, particularly the case for the master bedroom with its walk-in-robe, ensuite and own deck outside. Three more double bedrooms and another bathroom, separate toilet and large laundry all run off the gallery hallway along which fulllength windows look out to the landscaped garden and exotic tiger wood decking out from the living room beyond. In this part of

the garden, stones have been shaped to give the impression of a natural river, and the outlook is both organic and relaxing for those moving through the home. LED lighting is also a feature throughout this home, making it light and bright. There is also plenty of storage with nice quality joinery. The Novara show home is just one of a large range of plans that Artisan Homes has available to customers, which can be viewed in high definition at their website www.artisanhomes.co.nz, with the spectrum of affordable homes for first home buyers through to executive superior homes covered by these experienced Registered Master builders.

hen planning to build a brand new home, it is often difficult to select a design or a building company in the new home market. Buyers can be bewildered by the range of styles and materials available and the various cost and payment options. Building a home is a creative experience and one which should provide a personal and distinctive living environment, but the key to achieving it is research! Personal style and your budget will be the primary considerations and may lead you to a particular architect or building company. Some companies are known for specialising in a particular material or design, while others are more eclectic in their approach and build almost anything. There are four main options available to those planning a brand new home: House and Land Packages These are relatively uncomplicated, but may restrict buyers to certain locations and may also limit the style of the home. However, unless the house has already been built, buyers can sometimes make minor changes to the plan and choose the standard, style and colour of some fittings. standard PLans Most building companies offer a selection of standard plans. These plans can be modified to suit the site as well as individual budgets and lifestyle requirements. Usually the house is then built by fixed term contract on the buyer’s own section. design and BuiLd service Some builders and building companies create a set of plans incorporating your design ideas, while ensuring the design will suit the section and comply with local building regulations or covenants. Once the design is

confirmed, it is individually priced and then built on the customer’s own land. arcHitecturaLLy designed These homes are one-off designs and unique to the customer’s own requirements. This is always the most expensive new home option, but is chosen because the architect may be renowned for a particular style, your design preference is unusual, or the property requires some special design or engineering expertise. If a style or specific construction method appeals to you, try to visit a similar property or show home. Appraising various show homes allows you to make fair comparisons and visualise design ideas. If the company designing your new home is not also contracted to build it, you will need to engage a reputable builder. Aim to get three different quotes and ask to see examples of each builder’s work. You may choose a “labour only contract”, which means the owner is responsible for all project management including permits, inspections, payments, sub-contracting and ordering materials. The alternative is a fixed price contract that includes all sub-contracting by the builder. Whatever contractual arrangement you make, have your solicitor oversee all agreements and ensure completion clauses and guarantees are included.
