Concern over 90-minute wait for ambulance at sports game „„ By Tom Doudney CONCERNS HAVE been raised after an ambulance took 90 minutes to arrive at a rugby game in Tai Tapu on Saturday where a player had suffered a neck injury. Lock Josh McDermott, 16, was playing for the Waihora under-18 side against Lincoln when he suffered what was later found to be a serious neck sprain with torn ligaments. The injury happened when

he was in a maul and the game was stopped before being moved to another field for the final minutes. Josh’s father Maurice McDermott said he was concerned about how long it had taken an ambulance to get there, although he was also grateful to the St John staff who had done a good job at treating his son when they did arrive. Maurice McDermott said: “There is an ambulance based

at Rolleston. Why did we have to wait for an ambulance from town, rather than one from Rolleston?” St John district operations manager Canterbury Dion Rosario said all available ambulances, including the Rolleston one, were dealing with other emergency incidents when Josh McDermott’s injury occurred. “His injury was classified as non-life threatening. As soon as an ambulance became available

it was dispatched to attend this incident,” Mr Rosario said. Maurice McDermott said the length of time would be a concern for any sporting event in Ellesmere. “If someone gets injured at Southbridge, how long will it take to get an ambulance? “He was lying on the ground and he didn’t get hypothermic but whether it was the cold or the shock he was feeling, he was certainly going a purple colour

when the ambulance arrived.” Waihora under-18 coach Derek Smith said while he had confidence in the abilities of a trained physio who happened to be spectating and performed first aid, it had been a long time to wait. Josh McDermott had been able to move his feet and hands, indicating his neck was probably not broken, but there was some concern about his weak strength of grip. •Turn to page 3

Last-ditch effort to keep car parks on Gerald St „„ By Caitlin Miles LINCOLN BUSINESS owners have rallied together in a last attempt to stop car parks being removed from the main street. Business owners on Gerald St have presented a petition to the district council to overturn the decision. Under the The Lincoln Town Centre plan, cycleways on either side of Gerald St will see the loss of 75 car parks along it. The district council plans to put in parking precincts to compensate for the loss of parks. It recently purchased a site at 16 William St, near the intersection with Gerald St. The site will provide parking for 40 vehicles. House of Allure owner Lee Parker said the business owners were worried about losing customers because of less parking. “We set up the petition because we are concerned that removing parks will put pressure on the existing ones. People don’t want to park ages away and have to walk. We could lose business if they are taken away,” Mrs Parker said.

PETITIONING CHANGE: Business owners Gulshan Gulati, Tony Keys, Carol Townsend, Pritpal Anand, Kris Partridge, Lee Parker, Chrissy Partridge and Diane Clark have all signed the petition to stop the removal of car parks along both sides of Gerald St for cycleways to be put in. PHOTO: ALEX PARSONS ​ Car parks will be removed from outside The Famous Grouse Hotel down to the Lincoln Library and Coffee Culture. Hammer Hardware co-owner Carol Townsend said they were not against cycling. “No one is opposing the cycleway, we are opposing having parks removed for it. It would make sense for the cycleways to go around the back of the

Winter

town to join up with the existing cycleway between Lincoln and Prebbleton. Why does it need to be down the main street?,” said Mrs Townsend. District councillor Malcom Lyall said it was a little disappointing that the petition was not set up when submissions on the town centre plan were called for. “We had a time when people

could voice their concerns and thoughts through the consultation. It’s a shame this has come out after that time,” Cr Lyall said. The group posted the petition to the district council on Friday and are waiting on a response. Cr Lyall said that he had not seen the petition or what the group was suggesting but he is willing to listen and see what the alternative options are.

Wait for ambulance at sports game •From page 1 After calling 111, Mr Smith was told by the operator that they couldn’t say how long it would take the ambulance to arrive and to call back if things got any worse. “After a while, he felt like he was getting a little bit of tingling and so the first aiders rang and started to really put pressure on and say ‘things are getting a little bit worse, can we please hurry up’,” Mr Smith said. When Josh McDermott started shaking, they became concerned that he was getting cold from lying on the ground and covered him with clothes and blankets. Mr Smith said the length of time it had taken the ambulance to arrive was not ideal but appreciated that St John had limited resources. Mr Rosario said St John was initiating a first response unit into Rolleston which would be an additional resource for the growing community.

Supporting our senior citizens

Fashion AS AT the 2013 census there were 7080 people aged 65 and over living in the Selwyn electorate. This represents 12 per cent of our population and is slightly less than the New Zealand average of 14.3 per cent of the total population who were aged 65 and over in March 2013. However, we know that our population is ageing so it will be interesting to see if this statistic changes considerably when the next census is held in March 2018. The Government recognises the important contribution our older generation has made and continues to make in our communities. In return, the Government is committed to supporting our older citizens and assisting them to have easy access to the public services that they need. Recent claims that the SuperGold card is being phased out are incorrect. In fact, this year’s Budget 2016 included an additional $41 million of operating funding for the scheme over the next four years. The Government is committed to ensuring SuperGold card holders continue to enjoy free off-peak public transport. Recent changes to how the scheme is funded will not change these entitlements. Over the past few years, costs of maintaining the scheme have increased rapidly due to a rise in the number of people who qualify for the scheme, increased use of the card, and increases in public transport fares. Consequently, the Government took

the opportunity to wrap funding of the SuperGold scheme into recent changes to public transport funding, to get better value for money for public transport services as well as the SuperGold card scheme. However, there is no change whatsoever to the entitlements that our seniors have. The new funding model means better value for money, not a reduction in services. Cardholders can continue to catch public transport at no cost during off-peak hours. There has also been some concern around the switch to smart cards in some areas such as Auckland. Again, there is no reduction in the services to which cardholders are entitled. It is about improving services for those using multiple forms of transport in one trip, as well as making collecting data easier. The Government will work closely with other councils wanting to adopt similar technology to make the transition for SuperGold users as easy as possible, and ensure they are fully informed if changes are occurring in their region. The SuperGold card is just part the Government’s package of support for older New Zealanders. We have increased funding for health to a record $16.1 billion. Superannuation has gone up 34 per cent since 2008, and more businesses than ever are part of the w scheme. The broad range of initiatives under way show this Government remains committed to promoting the interests and welfare of our seniors.

Rolleston resident L Dunlop writes in response to a recent article in the Selwyn Times which highlighted concerns about speeding near West Rolleston Primary School. I was glad to see an article in relation to road safety near West Rolleston Primary School. I have seen a few people speeding past mainly in the morning between 8.45 and 9am. A few have been trade vehicles. Not all of them have been parents either as they go zooming past. I have a few issues with the roading in general around the school. Firstly, as you come off State Highway 1 and turn into Dunns Crossing Rd there is no turning bay for cars to pull over out of the way of traffic heading south. As you turn into Dunns Crossing Rd it’s a 70km/h speed limit (ridiculous). This should be a 50km/h speed zone as there are more houses being built and the likelihood of more children being present.

TAKE CARE: Waiting at Dunns Crossing Rd to get to across to West Rolleston Primary School.

The signage is piddly. I know there is a flashing sign which is still very small in comparison to the large 40km/h signs that are outside Rolleston Christian School. All schools in Rolleston should have these. Why is it that West Rolleston Primary School has been open since February, we are nearly in August and they still do not have a pedestrian crossing for the children? The stop signs – what stop signs you might ask? I have seen

several people roll over these like they are non-existent. Parents or not. It’s only going to get busier as the school grows and the new pre-school opens. Why are the local government and the Ministry of Education being so slack? What does it take? A child to get hit by a car? Then someone will do something. Surely our children’s safety should be paramount.

Rolly mums and daughters Way off Broadway to teach netball in Samoa brings out talent

„„ By Caitlin Miles A GROUP of Rolleston mothers and daughters will teach children in Samoa to play netball and donate sports uniforms. A group of 16 mothers and their daughters aged between 13-15 are heading to Samoa for 13 days as part of the iNSPIRE programme, which stands for Netball South Pacific Island Rolleston Experience. During their time in the country the girls will work with Netball Samoa. The programme was started by the Rolleston Netball Golden Oldies team when they went on a tournament trip to Fiji and thought it would be a good experience for their daughters. Rolleston Netball Golden Oldies member Leanne Brown said the trip would be “a bit of an eye opener” for some of the girls. Mrs Brown spent several years living in Samoa and her father is still there. Part of the trip will involve spending some time at her father’s house and getting to learn Samoan customs. “It’s a completely different way

VOLUNTEERING TEAM: Back from left: Hannah Newell, Emily Newell, Gabriella Moffatt, Brianna D’Ewes, Janaya Clark. Front from left: Laura Freeman, Sarah Gillespie, Amylee Brown. of life and culture over there, it might be a bit surprising to some,” Mrs Brown said. For the last 18 months the team has been fundraising the $41,070 needed for the trip. They’ve managed to raise more than $20,000 so far with more fundraising events planned. “The girls have organised all the fundraising events and doing

the hard work, we have been in the background of course, but it’s really been up to them,” she said. The Rolleston Netball Club has donated some uniforms for the trip and the girls have been collecting stationary to take over and give to the students as well. They plan to head to Samoa on September 23.

Out Of Hand Ben Reid’s primary interest for his printmaking is NZ’s environment and the impact of humans on our precious land. His work often depicts tales of loss of habitat, extinction of species and introduced and exotic predators. The print work produced in 2016 is a continuation of themes of NZ’s preservation. Narratives within each work consider isolation, regret, time passing, acknowledgement of our history, where we live and what NZ is, and what it means to us, also about hope and optimism, and accepting and learning from our mistakes, past and present. As told by Warren Feeney, “Reid’s delicate, elegantly structured and at times gently humorous prints are here to remind us of what is at stake: the unselfconscious grace and beauty of New Zealand’s indigenous birds and the way they enrich our world”. Marahau wood carving artist Tim Wraight describes works for this exhibition come from 2 streams. “Firstly there are 2 carved cubes of Totara wood in which I explore the laying of pattern onto a strong form, with a whimsical approach combining dancing figures and a quite formal pattern. The other group of works; old hand tools refashioned for ‘ritual’ purposes, with new carved handles and decorations of feathers, fibre and found objects, give reference and reverence to rural traditions and pre mass production industry, and the people who powered these tools with their physical selves. As a hand tool user I am aware of the intimate relationship with the material that the user obtains and indeed needs in order to succeed in their work. Sound, sight, touch, force and a feel for the interaction between material and tool all come into play. I am drawn to the beauty of hand forged steel, and learnt from my grandfather how to use and maintain these simple but efficient objects.”

SHOWBIZ Christchurch held its popular Way Off Broadway show earlier this month. Daniel Mathers (right), 16, of Rolleston was one of the performers who took part in the show. The bi-monthly concert is an open-mic night for performers, held at the NASDA studios at the Ara Institute of Canterbury based in the central city. For each performance, nine singers individually took to the stage to sing musical theatre accompanied by the piano. The singers were accompanied by pianist Sam Jury (below). The recent performance included songs from wellknown musicals including My Fair Lady, Les Miserables, Dreamgirls, Jekyll and Hyde and Willy Wonka. There will be two more Way Off Broadway

performances this year with a duet evening on September 9 and further solo performances on December 11. The performances are unauditioned. Interested performers should email wayoffbroadway@ showbiz.org.nz

training courses to keep up to date with the latest technologies. We’re always trying to improve and reinvest in our tools and equipment,” Lisa says.

To ensure you know that your vehicle is going to perform when you need it most, make sure you have your vehicle regularly serviced and maintained.

Lisa and Charittee take care of the administration side of the businesses – making sure both garages tick along smoothly and customers are kept up to date at all times so there are no awful surprises when they come to collect their vehicles.

At Jones Rd and Selwyn Auto, mechanics offer a comprehensive range of services including WOFs, all repairs and servicing, tyres, wheel alignment, batteries, parts and accessories as well as auto electrical repairs. They also have auto diagnostic code readers for those times when your car is alerting you to a problem you may not be aware of.

This care and attention to detail means no matter how big or small the job is, all staff will carry out repairs or servicing with care, ensuring your safety when you get back on the road.

Lisa says the bonus of having two businesses gives far more capacity for being able to meet the needs of their faithful and new clients. In fact business has grown so much they now employ 14 local staff across both businesses. If you want to make sure you and your family will be safe on the roads this winter, then book in your vehicle for a full service at Jones Rd or Selwyn Auto

The competition involved removing and treating patients involved in simulated vehicle incidents. They are scored on their techniques, time and how they deal with patients. The challenge also provides a chance to learn more about how to deal with different types of road incidents. “It was really great to learn different skills, that’s something we enjoy a lot because we can then use those in the community,” he said.

tries in the overall competition, up 20 from the previous one. Mrs Bakker’s entry, Maltilda Fuggle, placed second out of 19 entries in the senior wearable art category. The event is held every two years. The garments were judged on creativity, the quality of workmanship and construction, the design and use of elements and techniques. Mrs Bakker, who has a passion for art, recycling and recreating, said Maltilda

Fuggle’s creation was based on “the basic natural ingredients of hops, barley and old fashioned charm.” The garment had originally been designed for a previous beer festival in Rolleston. Mrs Bakker said the other designs she had seen at the Westport competition were of a high standard and she was chuffed that hers had done so well. “Some of the garments were so amazing, I didn’t PHOTO: SHEREE CARGILL expect to get anywhere.” PHOTOGRAPHY ​

Have a Go Day

coming to Selwyn Selwyn residents will be able to try out over 20 different sport and recreation activities for free at a Have a Go Day. This family friendly event is hosted by Selwyn District Council and local sport, recreation and community groups and is happening on Sunday 14 August from 12-3pm at Rolleston Community Centre. This is Selwyn’s second Have a Go Day - the first event was held in June 2015 at Lincoln Event Centre and attracted over 2,000 people. This year we have some great new activities for people to try out including high ropes for kids and adults, Scouts, Girl Guides, highland dancing and wheelchair sports. Other activities at the day are: archery, basketball, rugby league, hula hoops, inflatable golf, pedalmania fun bikes, skateboarding, softball, table tennis and tennis. You can also join in on a spin, yoga or zumba class for free.

Following the completion of the Broadlands Drive extension and the installation of a new roundabout at its intersection with Springston Rolleston Road, the Goulds Road leg of the Lowes Road/Tennyson Street roundabout is now closed to traffic. The change is being made to improve the roundabouts safety as vehicle numbers using it have increased. The reduced traffic using Goulds Road will also make this a safer walking and cycling route. Access to the west end of Goulds Road is now via Broadlands Drive. A full upgrade to this roundabout is planned for 2019/20 with traffic signals to be installed to provide an improved crossing for pedestrians and cyclists.

Other works Repair and resealing work will take place on sections of footpath with faults on Monet Vale, Rolleston Drive and Dryden Avenue. Gravelling and reshaping work will occur on Steeles Road with traffic controls in place. Edge break repairs will occur on Wards Road, with the road remaining open. Culvert extensions will occur on both Boundary Road and Ellesmere Junction Road, with the roads remaining open.

Last year 109 Selwyn dogs were picked up by the Council’s animal control team. Anyone who needs to report a missing dog should phone the Council on 347 2800 or 318 8338. The animal control team operates 24/7 responding to requests. Appointments to visit the pound to collect an animal need to be booked by phoning the Council. There are also three impoundment facilities for wandering stock at Lincoln, Leeston and Hororata. These will continue to operate.

Fashion Quarterly from Kim Taylor —Viva La Moda

Special Occasion This Summer? Summer stock is arriving into stores so now is the time to shop for your new dress. A common mistake is to wait until the weather is warm but this can lead to disappointment so now is the time to act and ensure you get the pick of the exciting new arrivals before sizes and popular styles disappear. Lace is once again a beautiful fashion trend in special occasion dresses. We have pictured the stunning cobalt Pink Ruby lace dress ($259) which is all about the amazing colour and flattering fit.

RURAL RETURNS: Scotty Bamford (left) returns for a brand new season of Rural New Zealand tomorrow night.

Scotty’s back on Rural NZ HE’S BACK! Scotty Bamford returns to the screen tomorrow night on CTV, in an all new season of Rural New Zealand. Mr Bamford will return to the screen for the first time in nearly 12 months after a near-fatal truck crash over the Christmas period last year. The Rural New Zealand team have been hard at work following the end of season two, earlier this year with filming for season three beginning in July. “We’ve had some absolutely cracking days filming over the winter, the weather has really played ball. We’ve been travelling far and wide, leaving our gummy marks right across Canterbury,” said Mr Bamford. Mr Bamford is excited to show off what he and the team have been working on when episode one airs this week. “We catch up with two girls that are riding horse back, circumnavigating

New Zealand. We met them in Kaikoura, 3000km into their journey,” he said. This week’s episode sees Mr Bamford meet Carrfields founding director Greg Carr. “Over the next 16 weeks we’ll be learning more about the Carr family and how the Ashburton-based agricultural business has grown into a diverse international operation,” he said. Mr Bamford said that one of his highlights this season was a recent trip to Omarama, to meet the 2015 South Island Farmer of the Year co-winner Richard Subtil. Later in the season Mr Subtil will explain the effort that went into recognition in the competition and his plans to future-proof the family farm for generations to come. Episode one will air at 8pm tomorrow on CTV, Freeview channel 40.

We have photographed the Pink Ruby checked dress ($249) with Pink Ruby checked blazer ($199). This striking outfit is ideal for weddings or races and can be accessorized with bright colours to add that pop of colour if desired. We have also showcased the Pink Ruby Helena dress ($239) which will be extra popular because it has a sleeve so doesn’t necessarily require a jacket. This stunning cobalt and white combination is fresh and striking and would be ideal for a multitude of events in your Summer calendar.

SCHO

Another classically beautiful Pink Ruby dress is the Midsummer night dress in navy ($259) which looks amazing as a stand alone dress or could easily be teamed up with with a jacket in any number of colours to complete a unique look.

SCHOOL

A skirt and top is another option for a special occasion outfit and is versatile in that both pieces can be worn with other items to create a different look.

We have teamed up the Pink Ruby assymetric skirt ($159) with the beautiful Pink Ruby butterfly top ($159). This pretty and feminine combination could also be finished with a crop jacket if desired.

Gardening

Time to dethatch your lawn EARLY AUGUST is the time to attack the thatch on your lawns. Thatch is caused by several factors, including grass type, excessive watering, soil compaction, high or low soil pH,or overuse of fertiliser and pesticides. Remove a core of soil from the lawn with a trowel or shovel and measure the depth of the thatch, which is the layer of dead grass above the soil line. A layer that’s 1cm to 2.5cm thick can be removed with a stiff lawn rake. Deeper layers may require a power rake. The best time to de-thatch is just before the grass begins a period of active growth, which is usually early spring. For lawns with more than an 3cm of thatch, power rakes or vertical mowers will need to be used and can be hired. Mow the lawn a little lower than usual. If needed, water it to moisten the soil. If you use a thatching rake, pull the blade-like tines across the lawn, cutting through the thatch. Work in sections, then remove the debris.

If you re using a power rake or vertical mower, adjust the cutters to slice just through the thatch layer. Check cutter depth after the first metre. Run the machine in parallel rows over the lawn and then again at 90 deg to the first pass. Remove debris with a lawn rake. Over-seed with a goodquality grass seed to improve the lawn’s health, vigour, and appearance. Other tips for early August EDIBLES • Dig over vacant areas and leave for frosts to pulverise the lumps. • Apply lime to vegetable garden plots where green crops were dug to increase worm activity. • Spread a general fertiliser on areas to be planted next month. • Check peach, apricot and nectarine buds frequently. Spray with copper before bud burst to protect against curly leaf. Same spray for bladder plum. • In warm areas begin sowing

in a protected position lettuces, peas, silver beet and spinach. • Sow outdoors hardy herbs, tender herbs under glass. • In warm areas or towards the end of the month sow under glass courgettes, eggplants, peppers and tomatoes. • Plant out asparagus, globe artichokes, cabbage, cauliflower, lettuce, onions and silver beet. • Divide and replant rhubarb. • Fertilise citrus generously towards the end of the month. ORNAMENTAL • Plant deciduous trees, shrubs. • Complete pruning of roses and cutting back of all perennials. • Complete mulching garden beds. GENERAL • Slugs and snails abound, spread slug bait • Ensure all-seasons oil and copper sprays have been applied to all fruit trees and roses.

HEALTHY: Produce the perfect lawn, dethatch it in early August.

GARDEN CLUBS Join a garden club! I wish I’d done this 30 years ago. It would have saved me a lot of time, effort and money! Garden club members cross many age ranges, they all garden in different circumstances, and they have specialist knowledge about their own areas of gardening interest. ALSTROMERIA I wish I had learnt earlier that you should pick alstromeria from the base of the plants. It would have saved me having to cut off the dead stalks later. WEED MATTING I thought all weed matting was beneficial but it’s not. The thick, canvas type starves the soil of nutrients and air. My next project is to remove a large area of this in order to develop a soil medium in which plants will grow and thrive.

EXCLUSIVE CONTENT FROM THE NEW KIWI GARDENER

From: Kathleen and Linda, Rangiora INVASIVE! Never plant horseradish – ever! Just buy it in those little pots from the supermarket. And think twice before propagating something found growing in the wild – it is likely to take over your garden. WHOOPS! Ask a more experienced gardener before you try growing freesias from a cutting!

Alstromeria

Alstromeria flowers bloom during late spring or early summer and prefer full sun and well-drained soils. When planting, incorporate compost and wellrotted animal manure into the soil. Old flower stems should be snipped off at the base. In early spring, mulch around, but not over, the plants. Note: not all alstromeria are created equal. In fact, some are considered pest plants. Always source your plants from a reputable supplier.

Horseradish

Horseradish is an easy-to-grow, deeply rooted herb, well noted for its tendency to become invasive. When dug, its crisp taproot breaks and any fragment left in the soil soon develops into an individual plant. Grow horseradish in its own individual container and stand the pot on an inorganic surface, such as concrete, so the roots do not find their way into the garden.

Creating restaurants post-quake Ever wondered who is cooking your food when you go out to a café or restaurant? The Star continues its series this week with Dux head chef Tristan Anderson

„„ By Gabrielle Stuart WHEN TRISTAN Anderson says he has worked to create three restaurants from scratch since the earthquake, you can take it literally. When the Dux team were working to open Dux Live in 2011 they pitched in to do whatever they could, whether that meant picking up a paint brush or learning to use a concrete grinder. That teamwork was something he had always loved about the kitchen, he said. “It feels like a sport when you’re doing service, making sure you’re manning your section. It’s physically and mentally demanding but very rewarding.” He now works between Dux Dine in Riccarton and Dux Central, managing 22 chefs as well as cooks and kitchen-hands. He started at Dux de Lux in 2002, after several years at Blue Jean Cuisine restaurants in Sydenham and on Manchester St.

H

From there he landed a role working as a chef in Melbourne. But when in 2010 he was offered a job back at Dux as sous chef, he jumped at the chance to return. Although he enjoyed the work in Melbourne, he said many chefs there were just “going through the motions”, and he wanted to be part of building something bigger. The role at Dux gave him a chance to learn more about management, and after the earthquake he had to put that knowledge straight into action as they worked to open Dux Live in 2011, Dux Dine in 2012 and Dux Central last year. Although management was a big part of his work, he still stayed in the thick of the action in the kitchen. “I definitely try to create an environment in both my kitchens that I want to be in. I lead, but I make sure these guys are all on a level where they are learning together.” Personally, he said there was

still a lot he was learning. He said Dux owner Richard Sinke was very well travelled and knowledgeable when it came to food, so developing menus which could impress him was its own challenge. He was recently named a finalist in the chef category of the Christchurch Hospitality Awards, alongside Harlequin

Public House owner Jonny Schwass and Giulio Sturla of Lyttleton’s Roots Restaurant. He said it was an honour to be named alongside the two, who were both chefs he would “take my hat off to”. Although cheffing had its ups and downs, he was still passionate about food and loved what he did. Even after work, he said he

enjoyed putting together a roast or slow-cooked meal at home for his partner and two children. But although he ruled the kitchen at work, that did not apply when he was at home. “It’s her kitchen. We’ve been together eight years, so I definitely know not to try to give her any advice when it comes to her cooking.”

BMW has combination of power and efficiency

„„ By Ross Kiddie IT’S A phone call I’ve received a couple of times in the past. The invitation goes something like this: “Would you like to fly to Queenstown and drive a new BMW back to Christchurch?’’ Of course, it’s an offer I’ve been only too willing to accept, especially considering that drive is one of the best in New Zealand, and the car in this instance was my favourite out of the BMW stable – the 330i. It was in April when I evaluated the 320i, a 3-Series car which has effectively the same engine, but with lesser power outputs, the 330i is rated with 185kW and 350Nm against 135kW and 270Nm. Of course, there’s also a four-cylinder diesel model in the line-up. The 3-Series in total is a true sports sedan range and I’m really smitten with the concept, the 330i has road feel, power and handling that makes you feel so much part of the car. And if you take into account it has economy almost unrealistic for a performance car, the combination is simply amazing. On my long highway journey and cruising at a steady 100km/h, the instantaneous fuel usage figure was constantly hovering around four-litres per 100km (70mpg), that sits well with BMW’s combined cycle average claim of

• Price – BMW 330i, $88,000 • Dimensions – Length, 4633mm; width, 1811mm; height, 1429mm • Configuration: Fourcylinder, rear-wheeldrive, 1988cc, 185kW, 350Nm, eight-speed automatic. • Performance – 0-100km/h, 5.8sec • Fuel usage– 5.8l/100km

BMW 330i: Touring car of true genius. just 5.8l/100km (49mpg). These figures could suggest unremarkable performance, but the opposite applies, the 330i is the powerhouse of the 3-Series line-up, it will scamper to 100km/h in 5.8sec and will make an 80km/h to 120km/h overtaking time of 4sec. And I made many overtakes on my journey, the 330i is a touring car of true genius. But it is also the docile sedan for when the driving environment is a lot more sedate, I had the test car for a week at home and used it for inner-city travel, especially to and from the hospital during the time my wife was having surgery.

The 330i is involving to drive at all times, as a driver you feel tightly connected to it. The 3-Series isn’t, big but it does translate its compact proportions into a user-friendly environment, and that is something BMW does well, not only is it desirable, as a sports machine it relishes the everyday role. To reinforce that, the 330i has compliant suspension, it soaks up the big hits from Christchurch’s roads, but it also has the firming needed to control body balance tightly when fired into a series of tight corners. Of course, the 3-Series has a

host of wheel and tyre options but the test car was sitting on aggressive, 19in Bridgestone Potenza rubber. I leaned the evaluation car heavily into several tight and twisty sections and can conclusively say grip is phenomenal, the quality of the fully independent suspension lends itself to sporty driving, and if you take into account the feel you get from rear-wheel-drive, then being part of a car such as this is almost the ultimate pleasure. At the other end, sitting longitudinally, is a turbocharged, four-cylinder engine. The twincamshaft unit works through an eight-speed automatic gearbox. It has a paddle-shift mechanism if you want to take control over the gearshift process. There are also

sport, normal and eco pro driving modes that the driver can use so that the car can adapt to varying driving conditions. I used sport mode a lot when passing opportunities arrived, and normal mode when long straights called for the use of cruise control. With the decisive torque boost that turbocharging provides, the 330i is a swift mover under acceleration, it will pull from anywhere in the rev band. At city speeds the engine will often hover at around 1000rpm, yet it will unleash and rev freely if the throttle is given a nudge. The 330i lands here at $88,000, it’s a premium price but you do get a lot of car for the money. Column space doesn’t allow for comprehensive detailing of specification items but to say it has a lot of kit and can be specced to personal satisfaction. However, the factor that means the most to me is the engineering prowess that BMW builds into its motor vehicles, the chassis design and construction create a sublime driving experience while the engine is a true delight with its surge and keen throttle response. As much as I enjoyed the drive back to Christchurch and, as much as I lust after the 330i, I’d still be happy with its sibling – the 320i. It doesn’t miss out on much, and a potential buyer could end up with a $16,000 saving.

FRee CoFFee & SauSageS Benchmark Homes’ latest show home is testament to the new direction being forged by the company, says its Director Richard Evans. For a solid six months Richard and his team of innovative designers have been working hard to create a new portfolio of 30 concept plans that focus on functionality and form. “During this intensive design period we really challenged ourselves by asking how we could do things better in a cost effective way. The Lincoln show home illustrates a distinctive new style that characterises our ethos which prizes high functionality and unique design above all else.” Due to the popularity of their Prestons show home they adapted the executive style home to accommodate a family lifestyle. “By retaining its elegant contemporary style throughout and the U shaped living area that proved to be the home’s key selling point we’ve received overwhelmingly positive feedback that aligns perfectly with today’s design savvy consumers.”

that add warmth and light, clever window placement that maximise all day sun, and a substantially thicker floor underlay, all work together to create modern homes that are both sustainable and economical to run. Quality control and attention to the finer details is what sets Benchmark Homes apart. Since the quakes insurers’ demands on building codes and compliance has helped raised the bar on quality. Producing ‘zero defect homes’ now provides consumers with a higher guarantee on the finish of their build.

“The expectation clients have for a new build that’s free of imperfections is becoming more and more achievable. Our project managers take great pride in the work we do and ensure clients are given ample opportunity to assess the quality of the finished product, giving clients the utmost confidence.” While Benchmark Homes has a range of concept plans on offer, these are designed as a starting point for clients and bespoke designs that begin with a client’s brief enable complete creative control with no limitations.

PROPERTY MANAGEMENT

W

hen it comes to home security, mosthome owners focus on alarms, lights andgates to protect themselves and their property. Although these are important, there are also ways of designing your property so it enjoys “passive security”, something that is achieved by having a property that is open to the street so neighbours and passersby can see if there’s anything untoward going on. Having minimal fences or ones that can be seen through and keeping the plantings at a low level means there’s nowhere for a burglar to hide. Some people also plant prickly bushes around the perimeter of their properties to put intruders off. Making it difficult to gain access to the side or rear of your property should also help to dissuade burglars. In this regard, lockable gates are a good idea, especially on driveways, as there’s nothing easier for a burglar than to park their car down your driveway out of sight and quickly load up all your goods. The key to good home security is making it difficult for burglars to gain access and to try to force them to work where they can be seen. That means having and using a good alarm system, outdoor sensor lighting and solid locks. Your burglar alarm should have as many sensors as you Passive security can afford, they should be well positioned so intruders can’t sneak past without triggering them. Having an alarm that is monitored or one that rings your mobile when triggered might increase the odds of capturing a burglar in the act.

If you’re building new or doing a major renovation, this is always a good time to have hardwired smoke detectors fitted so that they are connected to your electricity and alarm system. These should provide better reliability and effectiveness than battery-powered detectors. When it comes to planning exterior lighting, the minimum you should have is sensors and lights over exterior doors. The more sensors and lights you have, the fewer places there are for burglars to hide. If you want to go hi-tech, set up webcams within your home on which to capture intruders.
