Selwyn median house prices top in Canterbury region

Jackie Derrick

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding SELWYN HAS the highest median house price in the Canterbury region. The Real Estate Institute of New Zealand says Selwyn’s median house price has reached $550,000 showing the market is continuing to grow. Changes have been made to the way REINZ data is collected with regions that were formerly reported together, separated for more accuracy. Previously, Selwyn was included

in South Canterbury’s data. The latest May report said the median price was up five per cent in comparison to last year. Agent Jackie Derrick of Matson and Allan Real Estate Ltd said there is a healthy demand in all price brackets and she is seeing a continuing list of Christchurch buyers coming to Rolleston. “Rolleston, in regards to Selwyn, is the area where there is more demand and the boom is significant . . . people can see the growth or Rolleston is also being supported by

additional infrastructure out here,” she said. She said Leeston has become more popular and is driven by the affordability of houses. Property Brokers lifestyle/rural real estate agent Chris Moore said while in the main centres, including Lincoln, Rolleston, West Melton and Prebbleton, activity levels are still good, the market for the outlining areas such as Darfield and Leeston are becoming harder. •Turn to page 4

THE CHRISTMAS nightmare for the families of Samuel Drost, Cole Hull and Lily Moore has had another sequel as revealed on page 3. Parents of two of the three teenagers killed in the highspeed crash have spoken to Lincoln High School students as part of a road safety programme. By all accounts it was a very moving talk by parents Marcus Moore and Tracey Drost. Marcus sums it up: It is all about choices. “It is important. Lily didn’t go out to die. They went out for a wee joy drive and it turned to custard,” he said. How right he is. Teenagers think they are bullet proof. But cars that crash at high speed don’t take prisoners. I hope the students take on board what Marcus and Tracey said. –Barry Clarke

Heartfelt bid to keep teens safe „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding PARENTS OF two of the three teenagers killed in a high-speed crash have reached out to high school students in a bid to get them to think about the consequences of their road safety choices. Samuel Drost, Cole Hull and Lily Moore – all aged 15 – died late on Christmas Day, when a car they were passengers in failed to take a corner and crashed into trees near Southbridge. The 14-year-old unlicensed driver has pleaded guilty to causing the deaths of the three teenagers as well as causing injury to a fourth passenger in the car at the Christchurch Youth Court recently. As part of a road safety programme, a moving talk from parents Marcus Moore and Tracey Drost was made at Lincoln High School recently. RYDA, run by the Road Safety Education Ltd is designed for 16 to 18-year-old students aiming to change the way they think about road safety. The one-day programme is broken into six sessions covering speed and stopping, hazards, distractions and analysing true stories.

New record for firefighters FIREFIGHTERS FROM Selwyn have helped set a new fundraising record for the Firefighter Sky Tower Stair Challenge raising $1.25 million for Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand Five brigades from Southbridge, Leeston, Dunsandel and the Kirwee area took part in the event on the weekend. Volunteer fire brigade stations Southbridge raised $9337, Leeston $5220, Dunsandel $2380, and Kirwee $2257. The team that raised the most money was Auckland Airport Rescue Fire which raised $62,218. The brigade which raised the most money based on the num-

ber of firefighters in the team was Tamatea Rural Fire Force which raised $21,505. The current top record holder for speed is Josh Harrison from Mt Wellington Station who has kept his first place spot for seven years running reaching the top of the tower in 9min 20sec. In second place was William Garnett from Auckland Airport Fire Rescue who completed the climb in 9min 38sec, while Andrew Tomlinson from Howick Station came third with a time of 9min and 50sec. The fastest woman was Rebecca Wright from Otara Station with a time of 13min 59sec.

House prices top in Canty •From page 1 He said it came down to supply and demand in the outer areas and the further out the property gets from Christchurch or residential areas such as Rolleston, the smaller the buyer pool. Ray White licensee agent/business owner Brendan “Big Red” Shefford said Rolleston continues to be the most popular place for houses because there is more supply available. The REINZ report said the Christchurch city median sits at $459,100 while Timaru has the

lowest median in Canterbury at $339,100. The overall Canterbury region median of $447,000 is 2.9 per cent compared to April last year. In the report, REINZ regional director Jim Davis said the market remains well-balanced and stability has been a feature in the markets for the past several months. Selwyn is also experiencing high volumes of build consent applications with Rolleston having the highest number of new builds between May 2016 and May this year at 878.

Your Local Views A reader responds to Selwyn Times’ article on a proposal to have a new returned services association

Merv Barron – I was reading with great interest the article on the development of a new RSA clubrooms in Rolleston. What a golden opportunity to develop an RSA bowling club along the lines of the RSL bowling clubs, which operate in dozens of towns and cities all across Australia. With a projected population of 11,800 in 2017 and a growth rate of around 8 per cent per annum, that gives us a population of just under 15,000 by the year 2020. To have a “sports” club as such would be such an advantage to our town where people could gather to enjoy a night out for dinner and a show of sorts. Rolleston is the third biggest town in Canterbury, with only Ashburton and Rangiora bigger. We have no outdoor bowls club, so I feel this is the opportunity to set this up and even make it the headquarters for bowls Selwyn, which currently has nine bowls clubs. Food for thought. Readers respond to concerns as to how water issues are managed in the district Mike Glover – Your article

WATER: There are concerns about how water issues are managed in district.

on May 9 gave the impression that I believed Environment Canterbury should aim for 800 tonnes to be the load limit for nitrogen going into Te Waihora/ Lake Ellesmere per year. This isn’t my view.   However, I and most Selwyn residents, would reasonably expect the limit set under the new Canterbury Water Management Strategy targets to be lower than the amount entering it now – estimated at 3200 tonnes/year.   I’ve only recently been made aware that the new limit set by ECan is 4800 tonnes/year. A whopping 1600 tonnes/year more than it is now.   This is a cruel joke on the ratepayers and residents of Canterbury – the second most polluted lake in New Zealand is set to become much, much more polluted.  Unbelievable.

Jan and John Zervos – Between 2000 and 2016, Labour and National each governed for eight years. The degradation of Lake Ellesmere’s feeder streams and rivers makes way for the Central Plains Water scheme – emphasis on scheme, to make money from the waterways economy-induced demise. In effect, one activity is creating another activity to selfperpetuate profit-making and more pollution. We’ve already seen its first attempt to rise into fruition. When procrastination, obfuscation, obstruction, and repetition cease to operate, we’ll know there’s been a change of mindset. Then we’ll see dramatic improvements to Lake Ellesmere and its waterways.

News Port Hills fire risk plan A NEW plan has been released to assist in Selwyn’s recovery following the Port Hills fire in February. A meeting was held for property owners in the Port Hills area in late March to discuss how the risk of fires in area could be reduced in the future. Property owners provided feedback at this meeting and through district council staff which has been used to helped to develop the draft recovery plan. Mayor Sam Broughton (left) said the district council has been working with families affected by the fire since February and the document is focused on continuing to support them in the future. “It also looks at actions that can be taken to restore the built and natural environment and reduce the risk of fire affecting this area in the future,” he said. Building safety inspections at a number of properties has been completed by the district council’s building consents team. Future actions are identified in the plan.

OUT OF CONTROL: Lincoln volunteers help prepare a helicopter to fight the Port Hills fire.

These include setting up a facilitated building consent process for people who are planning to carry out repairs or build new houses following fire damage, with consents being prioritised. Some geotechnical assessment has already been undertaken on properties, and further work is underway in Early Valley Rd to address the risk of rock fall. Further information will also be provided to property owners on how to reduce fire hazard. The development of Selwyn’s plan has been co-ordinated with the recently released Christchurch City Council plan.

The discussion document and recovery plan aims to support objectives including homes are rebuilt in a timely manner and effected property and landowners understand how various agencies responded to the fires. Consultation on the document is open until May 26.

News Plan to boost creek’s water quality „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding IN THE 1980s a spawning survey done by the then New Zealand Acclimatisation Society showed there were 357 trout spawning redds in the lowland drain Snake Creek. As of last year there were only 57. North Canterbury Fish and Game wants to change these figures, proposing a restoration project that aims to turn Snake Creek into a living stream. The creek is one of three that makes up the Silverstream Catchment which flows into the Selwyn River. Emily Arthur-Moore The creek begins upstream of the Chamberlains Ford and flows out to Selwyn River above Coes Ford. Parts of the project includes Fish and Game setting up sediment traps to help reduce sediment loads downstream, reducing E. coli and phosphorus levels and providing a pool habitat. Natural features will be placed strategically along the stream

PLANS: Fish and Game wants to turn lowland drain Snake Creek into a living spring. ​

•HAVE YOUR SAY: What do you think of the Snake Creek restoration project? Email your views to georgia. oconnor@ starmedia.kiwi while gravels on Snake Creek will be turned over mechanically following consultation with iwi. Fish and Game officer Emily Arthur-Moore said the main issue is the Snake Creek drain is too wide, has low velocity, lacks diversity and is dominated by a “run habitat.” “It doesn’t have any diversity so a normal stream has what we call a pool, riffle, run sequence,”

she said. Mrs Arthur-Moore said studies by ECan show elevated E.Coli levels in Coes Ford is a result of pollutants from the Silverstream Catchment. She said while the water quality is considered to be okay for swimming, by the time you get to Coes Ford the water quality has decreased a lot.

species, it will improve water quality in places including Coes Ford. The whole project is expected to cost between $600,000 to $700,000 and is so far supported by about seven organisations including the Canterbury Waterway Rehabiliation Experiment and Living Waters. If Fish and Game raises $300,000, the Ministry for the Environment will consider matching the money. Last Tuesday, Mrs ArthurMoore ran a presentation on the project, asking the SelwynWaihora zone committee for support and to contribute between $50,000-$60,000 over the next three years. It was decided the zone committee would supply a letter of support and encourage ECan’s to support the project through the long-term plan funding. Te Taumutu Runanga representative Les Wanhalla said while he thought the project would be the best thing to happen to Snake Creek he wants to ensure the runanga is involved in the decisionmaking. If enough funds are raised, the project will start in 2018.

Two more years for council boss SELWYN DISTRICT Council has extended chief executive David Ward’s contract for another two years. “Councillors employ only one role – the chief executive – this role is responsible for the delivery of all council policies, projects, and plans for the future through the other staff,” said Mayor Sam Broughton. “David has helped successfully lead a number of council projects which help make Selwyn a great place to live. The extension of Mr Ward’s contract reflects the positive work of the council and staff in our community.” “Selwyn continues to face a number of challenges brought on by growth, changing community expectations, asset renewal, and Government legislation,” Mr Broughton said. He said councillors have high expectations of their chief executive and staff over the next three years. Legally, the chief executive’s contract may be extended for two years. Mr Ward was appointed to this role in 2014.

A NEW battery recycling scheme has yielded more than 43kg of household batteries at a Selwyn supermarket. A scheme initiated by the Lincoln Environment Trust and set up at New World Lincoln is thought to be the first battery recycling station at a supermarket in the country. The trust’s project manager Dave Fitzjohn said the station provides the public with easy means of ensuring their used batteries are disposed of responsibly. The project was supported by New World Lincoln owner Kyle Burnett who provided a space to trial the concept and  the district council’s waste manager Andrew Boyd. Sustainable Initiative Fund Trust general manager Maria Wake also helped fund the startup costs of the project. “It’s great to see a problematic material in the waste stream being tackled through a community-led initiative,” Mr Boyd said. The batteries were delivered to Ecotech Services where they were sorted, discharged where necessary, and stored for shipment to specialist recycling

plants overseas. Mr Fitzjohn said the exciting first for Selwyn fulfils the important objective of keeping toxic materials out of landfill, which is another step towards achieving environmental goals. The trust is hoping to start other stations at retail outlets around Selwyn. But Mr Fitzjohn said in the meantime all are urged to keep their batteries out of bins and take them to New World Lincoln.

EXCITING DAY: Clearview Primary School principal Rob Rush at the ceremony celebrating the opening of the senior playground.

FUN: Pupil Elizabeth Jack playing on a swing. ​

Playground opened AFTER MORE than a year of planning, a new senior playground has become a reality for a primary school in Rolleston. Clearview Primary School held a ceremony celebrating the opening of its new $135,000 playground yesterday. The school’s principal Rob Rush said the playground designed for pupils aged between nine and 15 was largely funded by a successful fete the school held last year.

It was also funded through donations from the school’s parent community group and board of trustees. Mr Rush said the programme is designed for all kinds of children whether they are ablebodied or have a disability. The playground features accessible matting for children in wheelchairs, a tall fort and a lily-pad swing.  “It is going to be long-lasting, children in 20 years will still be playing on this,” Mr Rush said.

Having a ball at Ellesmere College IT WAS an evening of dance and festivity with Ellesmere College celebrating its annual school ball. Nearly 200 students along with 22 staff attended the ball recently at Riccarton Park. It was themed ‘Travel – The World Awaits.’ The night started off with a buffet dinner and when the celebrations finished students were returned to Leeston in buses. The school hosted head stu-

dents from Lincoln High School, Darfield High School and Mount Hutt College. Administration support teacher Lindsay Cook said it was a great evening and the students loved the event. The college’s netball team is now planning to organise a “ball gown parade” as a fundraiser in the future. PHOTOS: LINDSAY COOK AND DEAN MOWER

Rolleston Primary School pupils Arlica Lange, Ashleigh McCloy, Taylor McCormack and Georgia D’Ewes were invited to attend a leader’s day event run by World Vision New Zealand, which is the organiser of the 40-hour famine. This day-long experience educated students on the plight of the Syrian refugees. The school raised enough money last year to sponsor the opening of two schools in Syrian refugee camps. This year the school’s goal is to raise enough for three schools. It will be asking the community to support their fundraising efforts this term. ​

Build your next home with Artisan Homes Your local registered Master Builder Home building is as much about understanding the landscape and the client as it is the plan and the materials. From our office in Rolleston, Canterbury our small company has built a huge range of homes that are distinctive, stylish, durable and cost-effective. From clever, compact homes to three bedroom townhouses to large scale, expansive country style homes, our work spans all types of house building. Since 2004 we have carefully built, among other things, a reputation for constructing high quality houses. An artisan is someone who is highly skilled in a particular expertise, a hands-on craftsman – someone who is passionate about the quality results they produce. With decades in the business the team at Artisian Homes have worked in all areas of residential construction. There are obvious differences between building a two-bedroom

home compared to a six bedroom one. Irrespective, our overall approach remains the same. While we have a sound reputation for carefully crafted home building we also are renowned for getting the right result no matter what the challenge. Building with difficult access, looming timelines or tight budgets is just a fact of life for us. All our tradespeople are qualified and registered or licensed. Our abilities to design and build a range of houses have increased over the years, as has our skill and overall capacity. While we don’t have the franchises of our larger competitors we do have their networks and buying power. Which means our clients receive the most costeffective results possible. At Artisan Homes, our passion is building homes for people who appreciate the work that goes into what will, ultimately, be a home they love to live in.

Can collection for needy „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding IF YOU live in Lincoln, you may get a knock on your door at the end of the month by a group of students planning to collect food cans to donate to the Salvation Army. Lincoln University students Holly Smith, 19, Jen Sinclair, 18, Ally Burns, 19, James Beattie, 20, and Sam Eddington, 19, will undertake a “can drive” around the township. West Belt St, Edward St and subdivisions Barton Fields and Te Whariki will be visited. The project is part of the Future Leaders Scholarship programme which requires students in small groups to come up with an idea to make a positive difference in the community. Miss Smith said the aim of the project is to bridge the gap between the university and community. “We just want to have the community involved. Our mission for this project is to improve the lives of others that are less fortunate than ourselves,” she said. The “can-do” group has

On the roads this week

Port Hills Fire

Recovery Continues

Road maintenance will take place on Auchenflower Road with traffic controls in place. Footpath reconstruction work will take place on School Lane in Kirwee. Road widening work is continuing on Jones Road between Weedons Ross Road and the Lyttelton Port Company until midJune. The road will remain open, but may be reduced to one lane at times with traffic delays expected. This work is occurring now in order to be completed prior to the NZ Transport Agency starting work on a new Motorway interchange at Weedons Ross Road. Maddisons Road is suggested as an alternative route to Jones Road at peak times.

Road closures – Manse/High Streets, Aylesbury and Hoskyns Roads The intersection of High Street and Manse Road in Leeston will be closed this week. A turning bay is being created and the road then resealed. The intersection should reopen by Saturday 21 May. Please detour via Station Road and Cunningham Street while the closure is in place. Aylesbury Road will be partially closed between 9am and 4pm on Friday 19 May to allow the NZ Defence Force to carry out tree removal. The road will be closed one way to traffic travelling from State Highway 1 to Burdons Road (but open the other way). The road is open both ways from Burdons Road west. A detour will operate via Walkers Road.

Work to help affected Port Hills residents and assist with the recovery of the area is continuing. A draft Discussion Document and Recovery Plan for the Selwyn area affected by the fire is now available online at www.selwyn.govt.nz/haveyoursay, with comments on the draft plan open until Friday 26 May. A meeting was held for property owners in the Port Hills area in late March to discuss how the risk of fires in the area could be reduced in the future. Property owners provided valuable feedback which has been used to help develop Selwyn’s draft recovery plan. The Council’s Recovery Team is continuing to work with families affected by the Port Hills Fire by offering assistance and advice as well as helping with advocacy to other organisations. Reseeding work has been coordinated and carried out in this area by the community. A number of skips have been placed in the Port Hills area by the Council to make clean-up work easier for families.

Hoskyns Road will be closed from 9am-6pm on Saturday 21 May (between Link Drive and Jones Road) to allow splitter islands to be installed. A detour will operate via Link Drive.

Christchurch Southern Motorway extension Weedons Ross Road will be open to a one-way system flowing from Main South Road to Jones Road from next week. Weedons Road from Main South Road through to Levi Road is a one-way system, in place from early next week. From as early as Monday 15 May 2017, Waterholes Road will be a one-way system from Hamptons Road to 833 Waterholes Road running south towards Robinsons Road with detours in place.

Aerial re-seeding has also been undertaken on some of the private land within the Christchurch City area, with volunteers also helping to clean up rubbish in the Sugarloaf to Cass Peak area. The New Zealand Fire Service and the National Rural Fire Authority have appointed Australian Firefighter Alan Goodwin to lead the fire operational review. Alan has 25 years’ experience including working as the Chief Fire Officer for the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning in Victoria. He will be joined by New Zealand Fire Service National Operation Efficiency Manager Trevor Brown and Auckland Council Principal Rural Fire Officer Bryan Cartelle on the review. An operational review is carried out after all major fires. It is hoped the findings will be released in around October this year.

Winter can bring snow, ice, fog, rain and less daylight. In these conditions you need to ensure you switch your lights on to make sure you’re visible. The Road Code says that you must use your vehicle headlights from 30 minutes after sunset until 30 minutes before sunrise and at any other time you can’t clearly see a person or vehicle 100 metres away. “Most times it is very obvious when you need your lights on, but outside the guidelines given in the road code, there are a number of other circumstances where using your lights will improve your visibility and make it safer for you and other road users,” says Ngaire Tinning, Selwyn District Council’s Road Safety Coordinator. “When there is fog, it is raining or where there is the potential for sunstrike, it can be more difficult to see other vehicles. Using your lights on dip is the best way to ensure you are seen,” Mrs Tinning says. Many people drive with their park lights on but these are only designed for use when a vehicle is stationary and are not clearly visible from a distance.

Annual Plan submissions and survey comments closed on 3 May.

New dog park planned for Leeston A new dog park is planned for Leeston and is expected to be ready in the spring time. A 1.8 hectare dog park is planned in the area of Council land between the entrance to the A & P Showgrounds and the land leased to the Ellesmere Heritage Park. The area will be fenced and will include planting, dog exercise equipment and a small pond. The project to establish the new park has been promoted by the Leeston Township Committee.

Increasing following distances and taking more care to check ahead before passing in these conditions is also essential as if other cars do not have their lights on they can be hard to see. Using your lights will greatly increase your chances of seeing and being seen by other vehicles.

Mayor Sam Broughton says the Council was pleased to receive a significant number of submissions and survey comments on the Annual Plan. “This year we tried to offer some different options which made it easier for people to share their views on the topics we were consulting on in the Annual Plan. We were really pleased to get a wide range of people participating in the consultation and taking part in our survey or sharing their thoughts with Councillors when they visited local supermarkets and other facilities.” 185 submissions were received on the Annual Plan, along with 241 survey comments. Councillors will be reviewing these along with the comments received on the Council’s Facebook page and in person. Submission hearings are being held this week on Thursday from 10am-8pm and on Friday from 9am at the Council’s Rolleston Headquarters. Members of the public are welcome to listen to submissions. Submissions and survey comments showed strong support for carrying out planning work for a new pool at Selwyn Aquatic Centre, completing further footpath extensions and developing a health hub. Submission and survey comments showed a range of views about introducing a standard stormwater rate and changing library opening hours.

Winter can bring snow, ice, fog, rain and less daylight. In these conditions you need to ensure you switch your lights on to make sure you’re visible. The Road Code says that you must use your vehicle headlights from 30 minutes after sunset until 30 minutes before sunrise and at any other time you can’t clearly see a person or vehicle 100 metres away. “Most times it is very obvious when you need your lights on, but outside the guidelines given in the road code, there are a number of other circumstances where using your lights will improve your visibility and make it safer for you and other road users,” says Ngaire Tinning, Selwyn District Council’s Road Safety Coordinator. “When there is fog, it is raining or where there is the potential for sunstrike, it can be more difficult to see other vehicles. Using your lights on dip is the best way to ensure you are seen,” Mrs Tinning says. Many people drive with their park lights on but these are only designed for use when a vehicle is stationary and are not clearly visible from a distance.

Annual Plan submissions and survey comments closed on 3 May.

New dog park planned for Leeston A new dog park is planned for Leeston and is expected to be ready in the spring time. A 1.8 hectare dog park is planned in the area of Council land between the entrance to the A & P Showgrounds and the land leased to the Ellesmere Heritage Park. The area will be fenced and will include planting, dog exercise equipment and a small pond. The project to establish the new park has been promoted by the Leeston Township Committee.

Increasing following distances and taking more care to check ahead before passing in these conditions is also essential as if other cars do not have their lights on they can be hard to see. Using your lights will greatly increase your chances of seeing and being seen by other vehicles.

Mayor Sam Broughton says the Council was pleased to receive a significant number of submissions and survey comments on the Annual Plan. “This year we tried to offer some different options which made it easier for people to share their views on the topics we were consulting on in the Annual Plan. We were really pleased to get a wide range of people participating in the consultation and taking part in our survey or sharing their thoughts with Councillors when they visited local supermarkets and other facilities.” 185 submissions were received on the Annual Plan, along with 241 survey comments. Councillors will be reviewing these along with the comments received on the Council’s Facebook page and in person. Submission hearings are being held this week on Thursday from 10am-8pm and on Friday from 9am at the Council’s Rolleston Headquarters. Members of the public are welcome to listen to submissions. Submissions and survey comments showed strong support for carrying out planning work for a new pool at Selwyn Aquatic Centre, completing further footpath extensions and developing a health hub. Submission and survey comments showed a range of views about introducing a standard stormwater rate and changing library opening hours.

1st XI XV Boys First Rugby 2017 Football 2015 Welcome to another exciting year of 1st XV Rugby. In 2017 Lincoln High School has combined with Akaroa Area School, Darfield High School and Ellesmere College and entered a team in the UC Championship. By doing so the team has been strengthened, Club rugby will still have enough players for their teams, and players that should be playing at this level have not had to leave the school or community of their choice to be able to play at a level that is appropriate for their talent. The competition has already begun, with the start date being April 29th. The team was excited to play their first game at Darfield High School, although all remaining home games are likely to be played at Lincoln High School. We would like to thank all the businesses and individuals who Angus Lopas have supported this feature. We would also like to thank our major sponsors, Challenge Lincoln, Wood‘n’Tree and Cannon Sponsored by: Hygiene for their continued support of the team. Without all of your contributions, raising the money necessary to compete in this competition would be extremely difficult. Our next home game will be against Burnside High School on June 10th and we would welcome your support at this fixture as well as all the other games we have for the rest Email: akaroaplumber@xtra.co.nz of the season.

SOUTHBRIDGE managed a convincing 50-14 win over Southern in the Luisetti Seeds division 1 combined competition on Saturday. Fresh off a bye, Southbridge took the first 35 minutes to settle into their work, leading 15-9 at the break. Southbridge manager Chris McMillan said scoring before and after the break allowed the team to get back to their systems after having the previous week off.

“To be fair, we were a bit flat in the first half, but then in the second things started to click and that’s when the points came,” he said. The Ellesmere side ran in seven tries to one after 80 minutes. Southbridge first-five and captain Shannon Donald bagged 20 points with six conversions, a penalty and a try. “He normally grabs a couple of hundred points each season and is in really good touch at the moment,” McMillan said. Southbridge face Methven on Saturday.

GLOBAL LEADERS IN FIRST AID TRAINING Christchurch Course Dates 2017 Venue: 32 Birmingham Drive, Middleton

Ensuring a safe work place Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues, but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or on to the sports field? not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social. take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries,

hypothermia and poisonings. The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far behind those in the workplace. The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard 6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk environments. This course covers many of the skills required to deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes such as motor vehicle accidents. if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the course content and give you options that will best suit your needs. Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where it is located.

Red admiral butterflies on the decline UNIQUE: Kahu kura, or ‘red cloak’, is the endemic butterfly commonly known as the red admiral.

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in entomology (insects and other invertebrates). Each week he introduces a new species found in his backyard at Lincoln. His column aims to raise public awareness of biodiversity, the variety of living things around us Kahu kura, or ‘red cloak’, is the endemic butterfly commonly known as the red admiral (vanessa gonerilla gonerilla). It is a medium-sized butterfly with a wingspan of about 55mm, slightly larger than the yellow admiral. The predominant host plant is ongaonga, the tree nettle (urtica ferox), although other nettles are also consumed. Green barrel-shaped eggs with nine vertical ribs are laid by females singly on leaf tips or stinging hairs. The long stinging hairs on ongaonga can inflict a painful sting that can last for several

days and larvae of the red admiral utilise this by rolling themselves in the leaves for protection. Larvae progress though five instars or moults, reaching a length of about 36mm before pupating. Adults are most commonly seen in summer and over winter as adults. However, they can fly on warmer winter days. The adults are nectar feeders on a range of species, including koromiko and buddleja, but have been observed on tree trunk seepages.

Anecdotal evidence suggests red admiral numbers have declined since the establishment of two parasitic wasps that attack the pupae. One parasite, an Australian species, was first recorded in New Zealand 1915, while a second species was introduced in 1930 to control the cabbage white butterfly.

Former Lincoln Uni student selected for international summit A young woman from Canterbury and former Lincoln University student is one of two Kiwi candidates selected to represent New Zealand at a summit focused on solving one of the world’s most important issues – how to feed a growing population. Christchurch’s Jemima Snook (24) and Beth Hampton (21) from Matamata will join 100 other delegates from around the world in Brussels, Belgium, October 9-13. Hailing from 49 countries and aged between 18 and 25, the chosen delegates share a passion for agriculture and a vision of a world without hunger. During the summit, they will share their diverse experiences and work together to generate innovative, sustainable and actionable solutions to global food security challenges. Their mission is to come up with concrete new ideas that can drive agricultural progress across the globe and be put into practice back home. Bayer, together with partners Groene Kring (GK) and Fédération des Jeunes Agriculteurs (FJA), is hosting the summit, which has the theme of “Feeding a Hungry Planet.” It aims to address the UN

Sustainability Goals of ending hunger, achieving food security and promoting sustainable agriculture. Jemima says she is “honoured” to be representing New Zealand at the summit. “Coming from Lincoln University I have many friends who are great advocates for the agricultural industry. The opportunity to attend the summit is an amazing chance to share ideas with other young leaders, grow my leadership skills and understand more about how New Zealand can contribute to solving issues of food insecurity. “I hope that my experiences of working in the New Zealand agricultural industry will bring practical, real-life knowledge to discussion topics at the conference.” Jemima spent her early childhood on a dairy farm. Her passion for agriculture developed during her time at Lincoln University, where she completed a Bachelor of Commerce (Agriculture) majoring in Farm Management and Accounting. As a recipient of a Prime Minister’s scholarship for Asia, she participated in a Lincoln University summer school trip to Indonesia in 2016 where she gained an

understanding of food security issues in a developing country. Jemima is currently working as a graduate accountant for BDO, Christchurch, in its agribusiness division. Bayer New Zealand Crop Science head Scott Hanson says it is important young Kiwis get the opportunity to attend international summits. “I believe there is a need for young leaders to be engaged in finding sustainable solutions to the growing global need for safe and nutritious food. The Youth Ag Summit is an opportunity to broaden the perspectives with others from around the world. It will also enable young leaders to further grow personally and develop their knowledge. “The agricultural industry can contribute strongly to achieving some of the key UN Sustainable Development Goals, but this also requires the active involvement of the next generation. The Youth Ag-Summit will give young leaders the opportunity to foster their ideas, share best practices and explore the role of modern agriculture in feeding a hungry planet.”

BACK IN TIME: A new view of a road at Arthur’s Pass from a point about half a mile above the Canterbury end of the Otira Tunnel. Before the completion of the railway, the road was used by coaches which were the connecting link between the rail heads. It is now traversed chiefly by motorists travelling between Canterbury and Westland and holidaymakers who prefer the walk over Arthur’s Pass and through the Otira Gorge as opposed to the railway journey through the tunnel. •Heritage photo supplied by Selwyn Libraries.

Gardening Onions – the must-have vegetable „„ By Henri Ham

VERSATILE: Stagger plant your onions for a constant source of supply.

YES, I know I harp on about must-have vegetables and herbs. The problem is, once you start growing and enjoying homegrown food, the list of must-haves seems to grow too. But I really do think onions are at the top of that list and should be grown in every vegetable garden. In my vegetable garden I like to grow red onions. But I don’t stop there. I also stagger-plant spring onions, regular brown pukekohe longkeeper onions, pearl drop onions and red bunching spring onions. For the newbie gardeners out there, stagger planting (or staggering) is when you plant a few seedlings of the same varieties (ie broccoli or onions) every few weeks to ensure you have a constant supply of produce ready to harvest. You can grow onions pretty much anywhere in the garden – they also grow well in pots. But make sure the soil is friable (goes crumbly when you touch it). If it’s not, simply give it a good dig over and add a bit of compost and fertiliser. Red and pukekohe longkeeper onions need to be planted 10cm apart. And if you’re growing them

in rows, make the rows 20cm apart. I like to companion plant spinach in between the rows. Or you could try growing spring onions in between. They will be ready to harvest much earlier at around six to eight weeks, so will be out of the rows before the larger onions need the space. Simply, plant your spring onions around 4cm apart from the next. You can harvest your spring onions at any time. But the longer

you leave them the bigger they will get until they go to seed. Your larger onions will take around 20 to 24 weeks to get ready and you can tell when they are because they start to pop right out of the ground. If they start to flower, we also recommend harvesting them as onions that have started to bolt or go to seed don’t store very well. Don’t worry if they’re green, you can still eat them.

Timing bulb flowering not an exact science „„ By Paul Hoek CAN BULB flowering be timed for special occasions? More often than not, this question is asked in relation to a wedding. And I can understand why – growing your own tulips, lilies or other bulbs would save money and look fantastic in bouquets or in the background of photos. Unfortunately, the timing of bulbs flowering is heavily reliant on nature. And, as Cyclones Cook and Debbie have recently reminded us, nature and weather can be fickle and hard to predict. So, the question of timing flowering for special occasions is one that is pretty well impossible for us to answer accurately. What I can do, is give you a bit more information about spring and summer flowering bulbs to help you decide whether or not it’s doable for your particular situation and region. Spring flowering bulbs In a nutshell, spring flowering bulbs (like tulips, hyacinths and daffodils) can’t just be planted later to make them flower later. Without any artificial chilling, these bulbs have to be planted in autumn (makes no difference at which point in autumn) as they require all the chilling that comes with winter.

MAJESTIC: Summer bulbs such as gladioli and lilies don’t need cold weather to trigger flowering.

Exactly when they flower will depend on how cold the winter is, how much rain there is, and how early or late spring comes. The only way to make spring bulbs flower later than normal is to plant them in pots and hold them in a chiller, progressively lowering the temperature from 9 deg C to 0 deg C over a period of 10 weeks. Then hold them at zero and take them from the chiller two to three weeks before you want them in full flower. This approach won’t work with unplanted bulbs. To make potted spring bulbs flower earlier, you can use the chilling method above and simply take them out early rather than late. But there’s only a small window

in which you can make them flower earlier. Tulips can’t be chilled until late March because the immature buds inside the bulbs need to reach a certain development stage before they’re ready. And, they need to be chilled for a minimum of 12 weeks. So August would be the earliest you could get tulips to flower – around three to four weeks ahead of normal. For potted daffodils and hyacinths you can start chilling earlier, in early March, and have flowers in early July. You can also get unplanted bulbs to flower earlier. But instead of putting them in at 9 deg C, you can put them straight in at 4 deg C. Do this in late March and then plant them out in late May, they’ll

flower at least a month earlier than normal. Summer flowering bulbs Summer flowering bulbs (like gladioli and lilies) are a little easier to manipulate into flowering earlier or later, as they don’t require a cold period to trigger their flowering. To make them flower earlier or later you can plant them earlier or later from July right up to Christmas – but only if you keep the bulbs in a good condition. The eventual difference in flowering time will not be as great as the variation in planting time from July to December. This is because the soil and growing conditions are cold in July to September, and bulbs planted at that

time will progress much slower than bulbs planted in October or November. Likewise, bulbs planted in December will flower much quicker as they are doing all their growing in warm soil and summer temperatures. Nevertheless, planting from July to December will see a spread of flowering times over around two to three months. So, as you can see – forcing bulbs to flower for a set time or a special occasion is by no means an exact science. But if it’s still something you’re interested in, I leave you two questions to think about. Firstly, will it ruin the big day if the bulbs haven’t flowered yet, or are already past their best? And secondly, is it worth the risk? – NZ Bulbs

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

A real home on show

The owners of Build 7 Christchurch, Jamie and Francesca Cowan built their own home with the intention of making it available for client viewing. “Making our own home our company’s display home, put us in the shoes of our clients while allowing us to demonstrate what we can do for them, and as every square metre costs money we wanted every part of the home to be functional,” explains Jamie. He says their 235 square metre fourbedroom family home is not for just for show. There is a reason behind every aspect of its design like the ducted air conditioning system that was chosen to ensure an ideal temperature throughout the home, regardless of the season while having low running costs. They wanted a cosy lounge that they used, so chose a cathedral ceiling and installed a gas fire. In the hallway, windows were installed to bring light into the house and thermal mass where the sun would help heat the home in winter. At the heart of the kitchen is a generous island, creating a gathering point while quality Fisher and Paykel appliances and engineered stone benches give an opulent feel. There is practicality too, with

a freestanding stove that has a gas hob and pyrolite oven, and pantry where the microwave and an appliance cupboard sit neatly away. Attention to detail is evident. The main toilet has a small washbasin; there is a spacious wet room in the ensuite; storage has been addressed with built in cabinetry

in the living area, large laundry with ample cupboards, and attic trusses; while the large Kwila deck offers shelter from the wind. Jamie says having their home as a show home, works well. While they need to be diligent about keeping it tidy, living with the design means they appreciate how it

could be changed to suit individual needs. He emphasises the importance of the design process and taking time to learn why clients are building, as well as what they need and want in their future home. Jamie manages every project from initial contact through to completion of the build, guiding clients and suggesting where they might go to choose their features and fittings while not pushing standard specifications or products. “It’s the client’s house. They should be free to pick what they want and have a real sense of ownership with more control over the home that is built for them,” states Jamie. Build 7 Christchurch is a local Lincolnbased building company that works across Canterbury. The many unique and thought provoking features in Build 7 Christchurch’s real show home, are worth viewing at: www.tomorrowsshowhomes. co.nz/property-detail/?id=145 and by contacting Jamie for a time to visit their home at 45 Sunline Avenue in Flemington, Lincoln. Their real show home is available for viewing only by appointment from Wednesday to Friday.

Megan and Lee have a young family. So we designed them a home to grow up in.

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

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

Four things you MUST do before buying a home Buying a home is a big deal. It’s likely to be the most expensive thing you buy, and it can be a complicated legal process. It’s even tougher in a hot market, where there is a lot of competition for a limited number of properties. It might be tempting to take a few shortcuts, but failing to do things properly could cause more problems later. Here are our top four tasks for home buyers. 1. Research the property The real estate agent selling the property acts on behalf of the seller, however they are also required to tell you everything they know about the property. They must respond professionally to all your enquiries and not withhold any details. Remember that you still need to do your own due diligence. That means getting a title search so you can find out all the facts about the property’s ownership, boundary and access, as held by Land Information New Zealand (LINZ). It’s a good idea to get a Land Information Memorandum

(LIM), which shows information held by the local council about the property and land. For valuable feedback on the property’s condition, get a report done by an inspector who has professional indemnity insurance and carries out their work in accordance with the New Zealand Property Inspection Standard. Although this all costs money, it will save you more in the long term. Sellers may occasionally provide some of this information for you. If this happens, check that it is up-to-date. 2. Get legal advice Buying property is expensive, and it can cost even more if something goes wrong. That’s why it’s important to get legal advice

before you sign anything. A lawyer will handle all the paperwork involved in the process, including the title search, and offer impartial advice. If you don’t have a lawyer, the New Zealand Law Society can help you find one at propertylawyers.org. nz. 3. Understand the sale process There are several methods of buying and selling property, for example, tender or auction. It’s important to understand the process for the property you are buying. Practices can vary between agencies so make sure you confirm details with them. The Home Buyer’s Guide at buyingahome. reaa.govt.nz has more helpful advice.

4. Read the sale and purchase agreement and understand what it means The sale and purchase agreement is your contract with the seller. It is crucial to read it very carefully and get legal advice before you sign. You can negotiate the terms and conditions of an agreement, but once you sign it, there’s no going back.

What to ask at an open home It’s easy to get carried away when you’re searching through property listings for the house of your dreams. But if you’re not careful, home buying can become a nightmare. “Buying a property is a complex and potentially stressful process, not least because it involves such a scary amount of money,” says Kevin Lampen-Smith, chief executive at the Real Estate Agents Authority (REAA). “It’s smart to do as much as you can to reduce the risk of unwelcome surprises or unexpected costs further down the line.” In the first instance, Lampen-Smith recommends drawing up a list of questions to ask about properties you’re interested in. “Remember that you can ask the real estate agent anything you like about the property,” he says. “They are also required to tell you everything they know and not withhold any details.” If you’re not sure what to ask, here’s a handy list of questions. Open homes can be busy, so ask the agent if you can talk on the phone, or send questions via email. - Have there been any issues with the property, such as earthquake damage or water-tightness? - Are there any offers on the property, or have any contracts been cancelled by potential buyers? - How long has it been on the market? What is the seller’s preferred settlement date? - What maintenance, repairs or

improvements have been carried out? Do these have permits? - Is there a Land Information Memorandum (LIM) available or a building report prepared by an accredited property surveyor? - Is the property well-maintained? What condition are the roof, piles, wiring, and plumbing in? - Is the property insulated? If so, to what degree (eg walls, underfloor, ceiling)? - Is there any risk of methamphetamine (P) contamination? - If there is a body corporate (usually for apartments), what does that entail? - Are there any issues with neighbours or planned developments? “If you are seriously considering making an offer, you will need to do your own research and seek professional advice. It may well become your home, so you need to know as much about it as possible to save unhappy surprises later,” LampenSmith says. “Knowing the right questions to ask is a good starting point.” For more advice on buying a property in New Zealand, or to download a free Home Buyers’ Guide, visit buyingahome. reaa.govt.nz.
