The result means that Waihora have sneaked into the final play-off spot in the Combined Country Cup and are still a chance of retaining the title they won last season. They will now play arch rivals Southbridge in Saturday’s quarter-final, which is a rematch of last year’s grand-final. •More on page 13 PHOTO: KAREN CASEY

Motorist four times the limit „„ By Andrew King A MOTORIST was caught travelling at 164km/h with four times the legal breath/alcohol limit on Saturday. Senior Constable Andy Williamson was on his way to a call in Akaroa when he clocked the speeding, 40-year-old man on the Christchurch Akaroa Rd, SH75, near Motukarara at about 5pm. Moments before he recorded him at that speed, Senior Constable Williamson said the man’s car was travelling at 172km/h. When the driver, who was from Christchurch, got out of his Volkswagen Golf, Senior Constable Williamson noticed the smell of alcohol. He recorded a breath/alcohol reading of 1025mcg/l. The legal limit is 250mcg/l.

“It is absolute madness. It’s one of the single most reckless acts of driving I have experienced,” Senior Constable Williamson said. “He is risking himself and others if he was to crash at that speed, it would be horrific to everyone involved. It is suicidal.” The man was arrested and charged with driving at a dangerous speed and excess breath alcohol. When asked what his excuse for driving so recklessly, he said: “I just put my foot down.” His licence is suspended for 28 days from the incident and he had to pay for a tow truck to collect his car from the side of the road. He will appear in the Christchurch District Court on June 7.

Tuesday May 23 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

THAT WAS one heck of a crazy piece of driving we reveal on page 1 today. The motorist was going 160km/h-plus and was tanked up on enough jungle juice to put him four times the legal drink driving limit – and in hot water with the law. The road between Little River and Motukarara where he was stopped is notorious for crashes. When you are going at the speed he was and full of booze the chance of crashing at some stage of his journey was very, very high. So luckily for other road users and the gentleman himself, Senior Constable Andy Williamson from the Lincoln police station was heading to Akaroa on a job. A quick U-turn, flashing lights, and a dangerous unguided missile was neutralised. – Barry Clarke

News Group to look at freedom camping „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding A WORKING party will be set up to ensure the district has facilities in place to cope with the influx of freedom campers. It comes as a result of the district having to deal with large numbers of freedom campers due to the Christchurch City Council changing its rules last year. The decision for the working party was made at Grant a public excluded Miller meeting last week with the district councillors. Last year, Christchurch City Council changed its freedom camping bylaw to ban campers without toilets from councilowned land. Mayor Sam Broughton, who is on the committee, said the district is suffering because of Christchurch City Council’s decisions. He said the working party will look at facilities for places including Lake Coleridge, Chamberlains Ford and Coes Ford for the following summer.   The details on who will make up the working party are yet to be revealed. District council chief executive

INFLUX: The Coes Ford camping ground is one of the areas to have an increase in freedom campers over the past year as a result of the Christchurch City Council tightening up its rules.

David Ward said the working party has not been formed, but some district councillors have informally offered to assist. Recent incidents of people defecating at the St Mary’s Anglican Church churchyard in Springston during summer were raised at the district council’s draft 2017-2018 Annual Plan hearing last week. In his submission, Springston Community Committee chairman Rupert Tipples discussed the lack of public toilets in the township and requested toilets be established.

Concern was also raised at the Springston Reserve and Associated Sports Committee meeting last week that people have been defecating in the reserve. The committee would like to see a two compartment toilet facility – one for able and one for disabled people in the area. District councillor Grant Miller said he does not see why toilet facilities cannot be provided in Springston and there is a need around the entire district. “Most ratepayers would

suggest, it is better to have public toilets than have someone going in the churchyard,” he said. Earlier this month, Selwyn Times revealed that a report on the impact of freedom camping in the area was presented to district councillors. However, the report may not be released until August. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think a freedom camping working party will help resolve freedom camping issues in the district?

In Brief FARMER CAMPAIGN Selwyn farmers will be among those targeted by a campaign started by Environment Canterbury last week. It will remind them of their responsibility to meet water quality limits and help them to find out if they will need a water consent to farm this year. RECYCLING FACILITIES Arthur’s Pass and Castle Hill will receive new recycling facilities. Recycling stations using large, customised shipping containers will be established in three locations – two in Arthur’s Pass and one at Castle Hill. The proposed system will recover about 40-tonne of recyclable material per annum. . RE-ESTABLISHED CYCLEWAY IN DARFIELD The Malvern Community Board was asked at its meeting yesterday if a triangular block of trees on the corner of Wards and Clintons Rds can be used as a cycle track. The request was made by Darfield resident Ken Jorgensen. Mr Jorgensen discovered an overgrown track in the area that is estimated to have not been used for several years. The land is a district council forestry block.

Key projects highlighted in district’s „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding NEARLY 200 residents have weighed in on the district council’s Annual Plan. A health hub in Rolleston, district-wide rates for stormwater and plans for an extension to the Selwyn Aquatic Centre are among the key projects in the draft 2017-2018 Annual Plan. Consultation for the plan closed recently. A hearing panel for verbal submissions was held last week with the panel made up of the district councillors. Submissions were made by organisations including Federated Farmers, the Leeston Community Committee, the Malvern Community Board and Environment Canterbury. Federated Farmers supported a district-wide rate for stormwater and encouraged consideration of targeted rates for footpath extensions and any ongoing maintenance. It wished to emphasise that any increased rates burden can affect ratepayers differently, so it is important to look beyond the “average” increase.

Annual Plan It sought from the district council $3000 pa for the maintenance of the tracks and asked to explore a future plan around facilities, development and marketing in the area. It also covered that the village’s public toilets are heavily used and in need of a separate block and the committee is in need of developing appropriate activities and equipment for its playground. A large number of non-verbal submissions were made from residents, the Lincoln Community Centre, the Rolleston Medical Centre and the Lakeside Soldiers Memorial Hall Committee. Along with the 185 submissions made, the council received 241 comments on their online survey. The online survey revealed 51.6 per cent of people who took part in the survey were from the Selwyn central ward. Fourteen per cent of people who took part were from the Springs ward, 11 per cent from Malvern, nine per cent from Ellesmere, while 12 per cent were unsure what ward they lived in.

survey was around if people would support a standard stormwater rate of $85 per property in areas where the council manages the stormwater. Overall 45.6 per cent supported the proposal while 42 per cent did not. 51.3 per cent of the Selwyn Central ward did not support the rise while 66.7 per cent of people in Ellesmere did. Seventy per cent of participants were for a new health hub, about 57 per cent for the extension to the Selwyn Aquatic Centre and 60 per cent was for extra funding by sealing sections of 19 footpaths throughout the area.

A new multi-purpose pool is also under consideration by the district council with an increase in the swimming pool rate likely to be needed to build the facilities. Sixty-two per cent of participants on the online survey supported the idea. •To read all submissions go to http://www.selwyn.govt. nz/council/plans/annualplan-20172018 •HAVE YOUR SAY: What do you think of the Selwyn District Council Annual Plan?

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding A GROUP of emerging DJs have started up a new radio station in Lincoln. The Glitch 107.5 was launched yesterday aiming to be a platform for people in Selwyn to promote their talents. The team behind the radio station is Lincoln High School year 13 students Edgar Paterson, Max Tattersfield, Anton Phillipson, Natalie Lilley, Hannah Boniface, Daniella Judge, Ellen Thompson and Beverley Cheyne. The station is part of a new radio course introduced to the school this year.  Daniella said the station has a great line up of talk shows that cover current events, pop culture, advice, musicals and the maintenance of motor vehicles. Anton will talk on the station

about teenagers owning their first car and general maintenance such as changing a car tyre. “Our team wants The Glitch to be a get away from the replays of current music and to help listeners to discover music they wouldn’t have been able to find otherwise,” she said. She said the students want the station to be a platform for the people of Selwyn to use to promote their talents, especially if musical. While The Glitch airs in a 10km radius of Lincoln High School, students are hoping to have an online platform in the future for anyone to listen. •For information, audiences can “like” The Glitch 107.5 on Facebook for updates or email theglitch107.5@gmail. com.

Children focus of skate park

In Brief

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding LACK OF space means a skate park in Lincoln will be aimed at young teenagers and children. Designs for the new skate park in Lincoln have been released showing it will predominantly cater for children and amateur skaters. The skate park will be sited next Grant to the children’s Miller playground where the barbecue area is at the Lincoln Event Centre. The barbecue area will be re-sited close by. Selwyn district Malcolm councillor Grant Miller said the size Lyall of the skate park came down to what space is available in the area. “Finding a site within Lincoln has been very challenging . . . there has always been a reason of why not from nearby residents,” he said. But a larger skate park similar to the Prebbleton Community Park has not been ruled out in the future. Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall said, as Lincoln develops with

Consultation on the designs were held last week outside the event centre.   The skate park is planned to be about 260m2. District council community projects and facilities manager

A big bowl, a shallow bowl, skatable seats, new plants and lighting is in the initial plans.  The existing seating and barbecue shelter will be relocated to make way for the skate park and a new drinking fountain will be added.  The skate park was initially planned to be located in an area behind the Lincoln Rugby Club. But there was concern about vandalism.

Children dismayed with amount of rubbish at ford

POPULAR: Springston School pupils learning to grow healthy food with a volunteer at the Springston secret garden . ​

Volunteers needed to keep garden in operation A POPULAR garden with Springston School pupils is need of more volunteers to keep it running. The Springston Environmental Community group is calling out for helpers to maintain its Springston secret garden or it may no longer be sustainable. “We now do not have enough people to keep the garden going . . . if we don’t find some extra helpers soon we might not be able to keep the garden,” Springston Environmental Community Committee chairwoman Dr Sue Jarvis said. She said the committee is looking for as many volunteers as possible. Volunteers are needed to help keep the garden tidy, run programmes for Springston School pupils, act as adviser or a overall co-ordinator. The garden was so popular it even had a visit from former prime minister John Key in 2014. The garden’s lost its both its

volunteer co-ordinator and adviser last year. Dr Jarvis said the loss of the garden would be a huge shame for the Springston community. The garden was first set up in 2011 in the back section of a Springston resident and has a gate into the primary school. It was named the “secret garden” by Springston pupils and is well-used. Dr Jarvis said the pupils use the garden with the support of teachers and community members to learn how to grow and use healthy food. “Having the opportunity to grow things makes our kids smarter and gives them opportunity to show leadership skills. A practical outside classroom is an ideal learning environment for many of our children and they experience success here,” she said. •If you are interested in volunteering for the garden phone 03 329 5858 or email sue.jarvis@lincoln.ac.nz

PUPILS AT Springston School have spent a day weeding, collecting rubbish and testing water at Chamberlains Ford. The work was part of the Serve NZ Anzac Day project getting pupils to pledge two hours of service. They identified Chamberlains Ford as their community project and were joined by Enviroschools Canterbury facilitator Matt Stanford and resident Mike Glover. Mr Glover and Mr Stanford discussed with the students the environmental impacts on the natural environment. Pupils were dismayed at

the amount of rubbish that had been collected within the Chamberlains Ford perimeter. Pupils Lilly Maree and Nina said when they found out they were going to spend the day at Chamberlains they were excited. “Going to Chamberlains Ford and seeing all those weeds around our plants and so much rubbish lying on the ground, not to mention the water quality still being so bad made me feel kind of upset because I love going there,” one of the pupils said. The children ripped out a lot of nasty weed and collected several bags of rubbish.

Your Local Views Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee chairman Allen Lim responds to Mike Glover’s letter in Selwyn Times (May 16) While we can always do better with our communication, I am surprised that the Te Waihora/ Lake Ellesmere nutrient load limit is news to Mike Glover (May 9). It has been discussed with the community for several years and the water plan that includes it (Plan Change 1 to the Land & Water Regional Plan) was made operative in early 2016. Following through on our aim of restoring the mauri of Te Waihora while maintaining a prosperous economy, the Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee arrived at the 4800-tonne level having listened to the whole community. This was an open, transparent and democratic course of action. The load limit remained in place throughout the Resource Management Act process in which the public could also participate. In the Selwyn Te Waihora catchment, farmers with nitrogen losses above 15kg per hectare per year cannot leach more than their losses between 2009 and 2013. In 2017, this loss needs to be managed in line with industryagreed good management practices.

In 2022, farmers will need to make further reductions; 30 per cent in the case of dairy. We are not telling farmers how to run their businesses, but they must find a way to meet the limits. There will be enforcement consequences if they don’t. Further, restoration and enhancement programmes such as Whakaora Te Waihora will lead to improved water quality in the lake and the wider catchment. Sarah Anderson responds to Selwyn Times’ article on the Snake Creek restoration project The proposed restoration project on Snake Creek is an excellent idea. Furthermore, wouldn’t it be fantastic to see every drain

and creek around Selwyn resuscitated. We would all be so much better off, more wetlands, more creek and riverbed restoration and management will make farming more sustainable and our waterways much healthier for everyone to enjoy – most importantly our flora and fauna.

As a resident of Doyleston, I have walked home from Leeston along Leeston Rd. It was not pleasant in spite of it being mid-morning and in good weather.   Two cars (one overtaking) travelling towards Doyleston passed together right beside me as I walked on the side towards

oncoming traffic. With my back to them I did not see these two cars coming so when they passed me at 80 -100km/h. I got a fright and realised just how unsafe this stretch of road is. Because of the berm camber, it is hard to walk well away from the road edge. I would never cycle on this road. This cycleway is in the district plan and I believe is an excellent project to enhance the live, work and play mantra of the Selwyn district.

A community punching well above its weight Dunsandel Community Committee chairman Russell Dalzell writes about developments in the area We live in a vibrant, small community that punches way above it’s weight in pretty much every aspect of life. Whether it be school achievement, sporting achievement, business achievement or just good old family and community values. We are in the closing stages of a seven-year programme to replace our old community hall. This was badly damaged in the September 4, 2010, earthquake. This new facility is going to be one that we will be proud of and will serve as a focal point for the whole community for many years to come. To achieve this we asked the locals to dip into their

pockets and the response has been amazing. Rarely has a project such as this experienced such generosity from the local community. This community cares about core values that make life in Dunsandel the special place it is. The grand opening will at this stage be in late July or early August and all locals are invited to attend. While we have been busy with the new facility we have also installed new tennis/netball courts at the Dunsandel Domain and another two are on the drawing board for 2018/19. We have a near new all-weather bowling green which is well supported. Small bore rifle shooting has one of the best facilities in Canterbury tucked away inside the existing sports

centre. Rugby, cricket, tennis, netball, twilight netball and touch rugby are all active on our domain. Once the new facility is opened we would love to see the resurgence of other indoor sports. The school speaks for itself with academic achievement levels up there with the best. The township boasts the world famous Dunsandel Store, great tea rooms and a reborn hotel that is rapidly gaining a great reputation as a fine place to dine. Quirky retail in Che Bellos and hairdressing for the ladies and a barber for the gents. Also a couple of very well appointed vet clinics and the iconic Happers Honda. The Trinity Church (Anglican and co-operating) is strong in a modern, warm and welcoming environment. A new subdivision has been planned on the north-west of the township so the future is looking very bright indeed.

BATTLE: Waihora’s Richard Mills pushes STRONG RUN: Thomas Simmers off the tackle of Josh fends off the opposition. Maynard

DETERMINED: Matthew Stone uses his power to battle through Saracens defence.

Waihora scrape into finals „„ By Gordon Findlater WAIHORA ARE still alive in their defence of the Combined Country Cup after sneaking into the play-offs with a final round-robin match win over Saracens 20-16. The match at Tai Tapu Domain served as a winner take all playoff berth. Coming into the game Waihora were in fifth place behind Saracens, which occupied the final play-off spot in section 1. “It was like a finals footy game and it brought out the best in the guys,” said Waihora coach Joff Moore. The home team held a 10-6 lead at half-time and were never given much room to breathe by Saracens which were also desperate to book a

spot in this weekend’s quarter-final. “The last five minutes was tense, they had a lot of the ball but our defence was able to force errors,” said Moore. Waihora will now travel to their nemesis club Southbridge on Saturday in a rematch of last year’s final. “They’ve gone through the competition unbeaten and it will be tough, but they’re in the finals now and it all starts again,” said Moore. Results Section 1: Celtic 32-23 BDI, Hampstead 34-20 Ohoka, Glenmark 84-5 Hornby, Darfield 26-15 Prebbleton, Waihora 20-16 Saracens. Section 2: Southbridge

“There was an issue with the architects plans which impacted on the noise levels of the bar and restaurant,” says owner Murray Davie. “We had customers kindly bring this to our attention, which is great because it means they are really invested in the place and love calling it their own. As a result we have gone ahead and remedied the issue.” New sound ceiling baffles have been installed which have made a difference in reducing the noise for all those who go there to enjoy a meal, have a coffee or meet up with friends for a drink. This is just in time, as the Silver Dollar started its quiz nights last week which saw teams take part in the Believe It or Not quiz – now a weekly feature of the

bar and restaurant. The Silver Dollar opened earlier this year after owners Murray and Bernie Taylor spent two years planning and developing the establishment. One thing is clear – the owners really listen to their customers. “We are really proud of this place and we want the people of Selwyn to be proud of it too, so we hope they continue to let us know of the things they love about it and the things that need improving. After all we want this to be the place where our locals and visitors come and relax and really enjoy themselves.” Visit the website www.silverdollarbar.co.nz For Bookings Ph 03 3470386 or book at info@silverdollarbar.co.nz

For most families, their home is their biggest asset, so maintaining your home in good condition is important to protect its condition and value. While most modern homes are low maintenance, this doesn’t mean they are no maintenance. Many of the actions you can take to protect your home are simple and low cost. One of the main problems affecting New Zealand homes is indoor moisture. Damp homes create an unhealthy environment and are harder to heat. You can help reduce damp by: · insulating your home · ventilating it by regularly opening windows, using extractor fans or a dehumidifier · heating your home · replacing gas heaters with electric or flued gas heaters. If you identify your home has a problem with mould, water stains or musty smells it could be a sign of a more serious problem like leaky pipes – you can visit www.consumerbuild.org.nz for more information.

The first of three new recycling stations is now operating at Arthur’s Pass. The new station is open to local residents, holiday home owners, businesses and tourists. Later this year a second station will be opened at Arthur’s Pass and another is also planned at Castle Hill. The Arthur’s Pass stations are located within the National Park. An estimated 250,000 visitors pass through the township each year. The stations have been funded with support from the Government’s Waste Minimisation Fund. The fund provides financial support for projects that improve New Zealand’s performance in waste minimisation. It is funded from a levy which is charged on waste disposed of at landfills to discourage waste. Over $60 million has been awarded to more than 120 projects across New Zealand from the fund to date. The recycling stations are constructed from converted 20 foot shipping containers. The bins are fitted with kea proof flaps to reduce the risk of the inquisitive birds moving the bin contents elsewhere or harming themselves by eating recyclables.

Areas you should regularly inspect around your home include the roof, where you need to check that cladding, chimneys or flashings are not corroding, lifting or crumbling. You should also trim trees to prevent leaves from blocking gutters and causing flooding. Balconies and decks need to be checked to ensure that the area can drain properly to avoid water creating issues with rotting. For more advice on home maintenance visit www.consumerbuild.org.nz

The recycling stations can accept clean glass bottles, household plastic containers, aluminium and steel cans, paper and cardboard.

Hoskyns Road will be closed from 9am-6pm on Saturday 28 May (between Link Drive and Jones Road) to allow splitter islands to be installed. A detour will operate via Link Drive. This work has been rescheduled from 21 May due to weather conditions. Sewer line installation continues on sections of Hamptons, Shands, and Selwyn Road to the intersection of Springston Rolleston Road. There may be a reduction down to one lane on these roads with traffic delays possible. Road widening work is continuing on Jones Road between Weedons Ross Road and the Lyttelton Port Company until mid-June. The road will remain open, but may be reduced to one lane at times with traffic delays expected. Maddisons Road is suggested as an alternative route at peak times. The intersection of High Street and Manse Road in Leeston has reopened.

Christchurch Southern Motorway extension There will be changes to the traffic setups on both Weedons Ross Road Weedons Road over the next couple of weeks. Please be alert to changes in the traffic management, follow all on-site signage and drive to the conditions. Weedons Road from Main South Road through to Levi Road is a one-way system. Waterholes Road is also a one-way system from Hamptons Road to 833 Waterholes Road running south towards Robinsons Road with detours in place.

Look out for stock over winter If you’re moving stock this winter, you’ll need to take care if you’re planning to use local roads. Any stock moved on State Highways will need a consent from the NZ Transport Agency. Council consent is needed for roads with a 70km speed limit and other high volume roads. Cattle must be moved in mobs smaller than 400 on roads in Selwyn. It’s free to apply for consent from the council but you need to allow two working days for your application to be processed. To check the rules visit www.selwyn.govt.nz/stock.

Aquatic Centre car park extension Work on an extension to the Selwyn Aquatic Centre car park starts this week.

From this date, land between the Selwyn Aquatic Centre and Rolleston College will be used as a temporary car park. During wet weather the grassed area will not be available for parking. The temporary parking area will improve public safety and ease parking constraints over the next few months while construction on other projects begins. It will be fenced off with plastic safety netting with adequate spaces along the concrete pathway for customers to have easy access to the aquatic centre.

Alternative parking will continue to be available opposite the aquatic centre entrance. The aquatic centre car park extension is due to be completed by late July this year. Please take care when driving with the increased number of contractors and vehicles in the area. The construction of another car park at Foster Park for park users will begin soon after the aquatic centre carpark extension has been completed. This car park will be opposite the centre.

Most of the current car parking will be available but some areas will be closed due to construction.

Nor West Contracting Ltd, which is working on the car park extension, will ensure the paddock is returned to its original condition once the new car park is completed.

When moving stock high visibility garments, lights and warning signs are recommended so motorists can see stock. To improve safety use a direct route and avoid moving stock at peak driving times. A pilot vehicle is required at the front and rear of stock at all times to avoid a crash. If you are approaching animals on the road, slow down and don’t toot your horn as it may cause the animals to panic.

Public Forums: Council, Community Board and local committee meetings are open to the public. Time is available at the start of meetings for people to speak on matters of concern.

Notices

Protect your home through good maintenance

For brick veneer homes you need to check that drainage cavities at the base of walls are clear and don’t have plants or soil blocking them. For concrete block homes it is important to maintain the waterproof coating which protects weathertightness. Fibre cement cladding need more maintenance than other cladding types and may require regular washing according to the product manufacturer’s instructions. All homes need to be regularly inspected and any maintenance items identified should be addressed promptly to avoid deterioration. Again the consumer build website has advice on this topic.

For most families, their home is their biggest asset, so maintaining your home in good condition is important to protect its condition and value. While most modern homes are low maintenance, this doesn’t mean they are no maintenance. Many of the actions you can take to protect your home are simple and low cost. One of the main problems affecting New Zealand homes is indoor moisture. Damp homes create an unhealthy environment and are harder to heat. You can help reduce damp by: · insulating your home · ventilating it by regularly opening windows, using extractor fans or a dehumidifier · heating your home · replacing gas heaters with electric or flued gas heaters. If you identify your home has a problem with mould, water stains or musty smells it could be a sign of a more serious problem like leaky pipes – you can visit www.consumerbuild.org.nz for more information.

The first of three new recycling stations is now operating at Arthur’s Pass. The new station is open to local residents, holiday home owners, businesses and tourists. Later this year a second station will be opened at Arthur’s Pass and another is also planned at Castle Hill. The Arthur’s Pass stations are located within the National Park. An estimated 250,000 visitors pass through the township each year. The stations have been funded with support from the Government’s Waste Minimisation Fund. The fund provides financial support for projects that improve New Zealand’s performance in waste minimisation. It is funded from a levy which is charged on waste disposed of at landfills to discourage waste. Over $60 million has been awarded to more than 120 projects across New Zealand from the fund to date. The recycling stations are constructed from converted 20 foot shipping containers. The bins are fitted with kea proof flaps to reduce the risk of the inquisitive birds moving the bin contents elsewhere or harming themselves by eating recyclables.

Areas you should regularly inspect around your home include the roof, where you need to check that cladding, chimneys or flashings are not corroding, lifting or crumbling. You should also trim trees to prevent leaves from blocking gutters and causing flooding. Balconies and decks need to be checked to ensure that the area can drain properly to avoid water creating issues with rotting. For more advice on home maintenance visit www.consumerbuild.org.nz

The recycling stations can accept clean glass bottles, household plastic containers, aluminium and steel cans, paper and cardboard.

Hoskyns Road will be closed from 9am-6pm on Saturday 28 May (between Link Drive and Jones Road) to allow splitter islands to be installed. A detour will operate via Link Drive. This work has been rescheduled from 21 May due to weather conditions. Sewer line installation continues on sections of Hamptons, Shands, and Selwyn Road to the intersection of Springston Rolleston Road. There may be a reduction down to one lane on these roads with traffic delays possible. Road widening work is continuing on Jones Road between Weedons Ross Road and the Lyttelton Port Company until mid-June. The road will remain open, but may be reduced to one lane at times with traffic delays expected. Maddisons Road is suggested as an alternative route at peak times. The intersection of High Street and Manse Road in Leeston has reopened.

Christchurch Southern Motorway extension There will be changes to the traffic setups on both Weedons Ross Road Weedons Road over the next couple of weeks. Please be alert to changes in the traffic management, follow all on-site signage and drive to the conditions. Weedons Road from Main South Road through to Levi Road is a one-way system. Waterholes Road is also a one-way system from Hamptons Road to 833 Waterholes Road running south towards Robinsons Road with detours in place.

Look out for stock over winter If you’re moving stock this winter, you’ll need to take care if you’re planning to use local roads. Any stock moved on State Highways will need a consent from the NZ Transport Agency. Council consent is needed for roads with a 70km speed limit and other high volume roads. Cattle must be moved in mobs smaller than 400 on roads in Selwyn. It’s free to apply for consent from the council but you need to allow two working days for your application to be processed. To check the rules visit www.selwyn.govt.nz/stock.

Aquatic Centre car park extension Work on an extension to the Selwyn Aquatic Centre car park starts this week.

From this date, land between the Selwyn Aquatic Centre and Rolleston College will be used as a temporary car park. During wet weather the grassed area will not be available for parking. The temporary parking area will improve public safety and ease parking constraints over the next few months while construction on other projects begins. It will be fenced off with plastic safety netting with adequate spaces along the concrete pathway for customers to have easy access to the aquatic centre.

Alternative parking will continue to be available opposite the aquatic centre entrance. The aquatic centre car park extension is due to be completed by late July this year. Please take care when driving with the increased number of contractors and vehicles in the area. The construction of another car park at Foster Park for park users will begin soon after the aquatic centre carpark extension has been completed. This car park will be opposite the centre.

Most of the current car parking will be available but some areas will be closed due to construction.

Nor West Contracting Ltd, which is working on the car park extension, will ensure the paddock is returned to its original condition once the new car park is completed.

When moving stock high visibility garments, lights and warning signs are recommended so motorists can see stock. To improve safety use a direct route and avoid moving stock at peak driving times. A pilot vehicle is required at the front and rear of stock at all times to avoid a crash. If you are approaching animals on the road, slow down and don’t toot your horn as it may cause the animals to panic.

Public Forums: Council, Community Board and local committee meetings are open to the public. Time is available at the start of meetings for people to speak on matters of concern.

Notices

Protect your home through good maintenance

For brick veneer homes you need to check that drainage cavities at the base of walls are clear and don’t have plants or soil blocking them. For concrete block homes it is important to maintain the waterproof coating which protects weathertightness. Fibre cement cladding need more maintenance than other cladding types and may require regular washing according to the product manufacturer’s instructions. All homes need to be regularly inspected and any maintenance items identified should be addressed promptly to avoid deterioration. Again the consumer build website has advice on this topic.

Speedy little house spider Time for a laugh 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 A very distinctive spider in our backyards or houses is a small fleet-footed spider with black and white markings and orange forelegs. Until recently, it was known as supunna picta, but arachnologists have renamed it nyssus coloripes. The species is native to Australia and was first recorded in Auckland in 1943, with the first South Island record in Marlborough in 1969. The 7-10mm long spider mimics other species, such as wasps, by waving its orange forelegs like antennae thereby gaining some protective advantage through its menacing appearance. In spite of its orange warning colour, its bite is not medically

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding SOME OF New Zealand’s top comedians will travel to Lincoln to bring the house down for a one night only comedy show in October. Live in Lincoln is back with comedians Ben Hurley, Paul Ego, Michele A’Court, Jeremy Elwood and Gish set to take the stage for a comedy night at the Lincoln Event Centre. The event was first launched last year with nearly 1000 people attending the night featuring comedians TV3’s Seven Days Jeremy Corbett along with Hurley, Justine Smith and Tom Furniss. Both Hurley and Ego are regulars on Seven Days. A’Court and Elwood also often make guest appearances as well as TV3’s The Project. Gish, also known as Justin Hansen, is a well-known stand-up comedian who uses his musical talent for creating a combination of original and popular song parodies. Lincoln resident and promoter David Parlane, who also organised the successful Selwyn Sounds event earlier this year, said people who went last year had a fantastic time and he is sure they are going to have an even better time this year.

Gardening

Essential tips on how to grow Should you plant on the shortest day, or is this based on myth more than merit? Steve Wratten provides the answers

THERE’S NO doubt about it – garlic is certainly worth growing in your vegetable garden. In fact, our neighbour Sally plants 52 cloves to produce a head of the stuff for each week of the year – sensible Sally. She probably knows these little bulbs have antibacterial, antiviral and anticancer properties and they even delay the development of atherosclerosis. They contain allicin (so do onions and leeks) that protect against stomach and colon cancer. You can always buy the bulbs from the supermarket, of course, but it often comes from Mexico or China and is dry and shrivelled, dusty and tasteless. So, let’s explore how to grow good garlic. WHERE TO BUY IT? I get mine from farmers’ markets if possible. It’s likely to be local and therefore grown under conditions similar to those of your garden. Look for firm heads of the stuff, ideally with pale lilac-coloured streaks and fat individual cloves. Failing that, see if a neighbour had a good crop last year and can spare a few that he/she has saved for planting. If you do buy some, go to a good garden centre; some outlets sell tiny, peeling heads of the stuff, which can cost $1/bulb, in little bags of red plastic mesh. Avoid. You can also plant some of your own crop from last year.

HEALTHY: When buying your bulbs, look for firm heads with pale lilac-coloured streaks and fat cloves.

HOW TO STORE IT I cadge or buy from the supermarket those gossamer-like bread bags in which the shop puts still-warm bread before it goes on the shelves. They have hundreds of tiny perforations to let the steam out but, when used for garlic storage,

they keep the bulbs aerated (five or six/bag, I suggest) to minimise rotting in storage. You could store them loose in trays in a shed but the rats get mine. Hang the bags from the shed roof, away from direct sunlight, and they stay aerated and free from rodents until you need them.

gardening without guesswork Question:

I have just got some feijoa plants, and I wanted to know how to care for them with the frosts and snow. Do they need a frost cloth?

Yum! I can smell the delicious aroma of feijoa and apple crumble already! Feijoa plants are quite hardy, so they do not need to be protected with frost cloth. Our local expert says that he has not done this before, and his plants are doing very well. Heavy snow may cause some branches to break, but the plants will make plenty of new growth in the spring. If this does happen, they may need a bit of a prune to tidy up any broken branches but that’s about all that is needed.

good garlic early August would not be too late.

WHEN TO PLANT IT? Books and websites keep copying each other and chant the meaningless mantra of ‘plant on the shortest day and harvest on the longest!’ Don’t they realise that our garden soil is at its coldest in July and August? Why submit rootless and vulnerable cloves to that challenge by planting in June? I wanted to find out what the professionals do so I phoned John Murphy of Phoenex Garlic in Marlborough, for advice. His first words were “I ignore that shortest-day advice.” Well, that was a good start! He plants his in August or early September – to get bulbs of an even shape and good appearance. They may be a little smaller at harvest but the market cares more about shape and appearance. For home gardeners, he recommends July. I asked about varieties – I have never seen a garlic label giving this information. John said he grows ‘Printanor’ (derived from the French word ‘printemps’, meaning spring; there’s another clue as to planting time). He also grows ‘Presto’, which goes in around July. In Canterbury, and further south, late July or

HOW TO PLANT IT? I do something which I think John does not do. I dig a shallow trench where my garlic is due to be planted, put some compost in the trench (I use the cheap stuff which comes in 25kg bags from megastores; I paid only $3.80/ bag a few weeks ago), mix the extracted soil into it within the trench. Add some wood ash or bought potash fertiliser. You will then have a mound of friable, noncompacted planting medium in which to press the cloves so they are buried at twice their length.

previous years – white rot spores persist in the soil for ages. So, minimise the threats to your having a great garlic crop each year and look forward to a mildly-garlicky mayonnaise, stuffed and grilled half-shell mussels or a garlic chicken casserole.

HOW TO GROW IT First, don’t over-water. If you do, onion white rot may clobber your plants. Early yellowing of the leaves, before the bulbs are anywhere near the right size, is a tell-tale sign that something’s up. Some gardeners dip the cloves before planting in kitchen bleach (I suggest a five per cent solution but it’s a bit of a gamble). This is supposed to kill the white-rot spores. Definitely do not grow your garlic in the same place as in

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW When to sow Plant the single cloves (not the whole bulb!) in late winter/early spring. Where to plant Full sun, in a slightly raised bed, for drainage. Plant spacing 15cm apart. Time to maturity Around seven months. Where to buy A good garden centre or a farmers’ market or use a few good bulbs left over from the previous season’s crop.

SYSTEMATIC: Dig a shallow trench and mix in some compost, along with wood ash or potash fertiliser, before pressing in the garlic cloves so they are buried at twice their depth.

A solution to clogged spouting Falling autumn leaves make a pretty picture. They also clog up spouting, leading to problems if debris accumulates and blocks rainwater flowing off the roof, which can overflow and seep into the house. “Leaf litter can remain in spouting for weeks,” says Rohan, owner of Gum Leaf. As the South Island supplier of Gutter Guard, Rohan and his team understand the effect of wet leaves in roof spouting. “Leaves may be wringing wet after several weeks of dry weather,” explains Rohan. “When spouting gets blocked it can rot and water can seep into the house causing damage.” Damage caused in this manner may not be covered by insurance, if an insurer deems it is due to a lack of maintenance that would have prevented such damage; a requirement of any household policy. Installing Gutter Guard eliminates spouting blockages. This expanded steel mesh product has a cheese grater-like surface that sees leaf litter and tree debris slide off. Produced from Coloursteel, Gutter Guard will last as long as the roof it is attached to and can be colour matched so it blends with the roof, making it aesthetically pleasing. Gutter Guard eliminates the need to clean out spouting and prevents rats and mice from using your roof as a warm place to spend winter. They cannot push or eat

The Gum Leaf team are likely to be on the job within a week, anywhere in Canterbury, with installation taking about 1-2 days.

their way through Gutter Guard, unlike some other products on the market. With no rubbish or vermin in the roof, your water system is protected from potential contamination. Gutter Guard strengthens and protects spouting from the weight of snow, which can do serious damage. It also prevents snow and hail from causing a blockage or valley, which if followed by rain could lead to extensive flooding inside a roof. Gum Leaf installs Gutter Guard and supply for do-it-yourself, with an installation video on-line at http://gumleaf. co.nz. Rohan is available Monday-Saturday, on 0800 486 532 or by email: rohan@ gumleaf.co.nz. If he is does not answer, leave a message. He will: call back promptly, visit within a day, provide free no obligation advice, and quote immediately.

HOME PROFESSIONALS

Home improvements made easy • Carpentry work • Plastering • Painting • Fitting of showers • Laying of tiles • Decks • Pergolas • Walls • Plus more! When we love our home and its locale yet it is just not big enough, adding an extension or changing its footprint can solve the problem. Renovating the home can also give it a new look without the price tag of a new build while adding value to the property. KTM Builders Limited specialise in home improvements. With over sixteen years’ residential building experience, owner and operator of the company, Keith Moore has considerable knowledge in the industry. Keith has completed many renovations, transforming older houses into modern, functional homes. He has lots of ideas and can suggest ways to make the most of your floor area, where best to extend, how rooms can be more functional, and how outdoor areas can be transformed to appealing, practical settings. Keith builds decks, pergolas and walls that add character while providing sun shade and shelter from the wind. Whether taking out or moving a wall; building a new kitchen or extending a bedroom or lounge; or updating a kitchen or bathroom, Keith can do the job. He has renovated many little rooms and kitchens, working with designers, directing clients to affordable kitchen manufacturers, or taking care of the whole job himself. As a licensed building practitioner and Site Safe trained registered builder, Keith will manage each stage of a project or work

with an appointed project consultant. KTM Builders Limited is a one-stop build shop, from the carpentry work to the plastering, painting, fitting of showers and laying of tiles. Less sub-contractors on the job translates to a faster completion while their own electrical and plumbing contractors will be on the job in a timely manner. Keith and wife, Trish are also active community members having trained four young apprentices in the district who are now carpenters and assisting and sponsoring Southbridge’s Under-Sevens rugby team. If you want advice on how to transform your home or a competitive quote, give Keith a call on: 027 274 9359, or email: ktmbuilders@xtra.co.nz. You might also check them out on Facebook.

Create your own amazing outdoor space Amazing outdoor spaces are possible with any section size and The Outdoor Space team have constructed some great features. These include a Schist stone gateway and entrance pillars, with decking that modernised an older home, and constructing decks and pergolas, some with a roof to keep the weather out. One pergola was an extension of a carport that doubled as a covered barbeque area, effectively extending the outdoor living space on a smaller block of land. “We work with a variety of mediums including stone, bricks and timber, as well as completing soft landscaping, from laying lawns to planting out,” advises Aaron Bartlett who with wife, Vicky owns and operates The Outdoor Space. Aaron prefers chunky Macrocarpa for pergolas as it holds its shape better than pine. He says that laminate timber also works well. It looks good stained or has a fresh look when painted to match the house colours. Aaron says Kwila timber decks are very popular, with stainless steel screws used to fix the planks for a better finish. They have also constructed Kwila planter boxes

around several decks, some with seating on the top. A couple of interesting creations by The Outdoor Space have been a recycled red brick wall and a fence from an old house wall that incorporated a rustic window. “I really enjoy creating unique and interesting structures,” says Aaron. He likes to sit down with clients to discuss options for their outdoors, bringing their dreams and ideas to reality; completing part of all of job to a client’s budget and timeline, even if it means popping back when required, until the landscaping vision is complete. With lawn sowing season over until spring, the team are available to lay ready lawn for those wanting to avoid the mud over the cooler months. If wanting assistance with a seeded lawn in spring, now is also the time to book in, so The Outdoor Space will have it ready to walk on by Christmas. To talk landscaping and for a free quote, call Aaron on: 021 542 402 and for ideas, check out: www.theoutdoorspace.co.nz.

REAA - Understanding real estate jargon Every industry is full of jargon and buzzwords that make no sense to anyone who’s not part of the club. Real estate is no different, which means it can be hard to get up to speed. Here’s a handy guide to some of the most common terms you’ll come across when buying or selling property. Agency agreement: If you are using a licensed real estate agent to sell your property, you’ll need to sign one of these agreements - it sets out what the agent will do and what they will be paid. Remember you can negotiate the conditions, such as who pays for marketing and how much the commission is. Make sure you get legal advice before you sign, because it’s a binding document. BEO or BBO: This stands for ‘Buyer Enquiry Over’ or ‘Buyer Budget Over’, which means that price listed on the advertisement indicates the minimum that the seller will accept. The seller actually

needs to give serious consideration to any offer over the BEO, so this figure needs to be selected carefully. Deadline Sale or Deadline Private Treaty: In this kind of sale, a property is marketed for a set period (with an advertised end date). The seller can choose to accept an offer at any stage during the listing period though it may be stated in the advertising that ‘no offer will be accepted prior’. Check the fine print. LIM: This stands for Land Information Memorandum, which contains everything that the local council knows about the property, such as any issues with drainage and plumbing, erosion or permits. It will help you identify if any additions haven’t got the right consent. A LIM will also record any unpaid rates. Sale and purchase agreement: This is a legally binding contract between the buyer and seller for the purchase/

sale of a property. It provides certainty to both parties and it sets out in writing all the agreed terms and conditions. It’s essential to get legal advice before you sign an agreement – and that you read and understand what it means. Settlement: This is the end goal in a property transaction, when the sale and purchase is completed by the exchange of property and payment. Settlement occurs when the seller receives the money for the sale – the buyer will not receive the keys until this happens. RV: This stands for ‘Rateable Value’ – this is a value used to calculate local body rates. It should not be assumed to be a market value for a property when it is for sale as the rating valuation may be a number of years old. It is also not responsive to local market fluctuations and may not reflect

any recent renovations to a property. This was formerly known as ‘Government Value’, or GV. Tender: If a property is for sale by tender, prospective buyers must submit confidential written offers by a set date. Usually there is no minimum price, but properties are often listed with a BEO or BBO price. The seller can then choose the offer that is most acceptable to them, based on the price and any attached conditions. The most attractive tender is likely to be one that combines a good price with few conditions. Sellers are allowed to negotiate with any one or more of the tenderers received after tenders close.

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

Garages are not all equal Not all garages are equal. Smaller townhouses may have a single garage whereas larger homes are more likely to have double, triple or even four-car garaging. Having more garaging has been more popular in recent times. It can add an ‘x’ factor leading to a speedier house sale and potential for a higher selling price. However, how much garage space do you really need? Before committing to an even larger home, take time to consider the purpose of your garage. This may avoid the situation where one or more vehicles is parked up in the driveway due to there being no room in the garage after work bench, garden equipment, bicycles and other items are packed in. An outside shed may take out some clutter, as will moving on unused possessions, with the result that a standard double garage may be sufficient. While a larger garage will add square metres, extra garage space costs less than in other areas of a home because there are fewer features. At planning stage, map out what will be stored in the garage. Take account of the space needed for motor vehicles, bikes, work bench, tools and gardening implements, if these will be kept in the garage. List all the items, measuring each to assess how they will fit into the garage.

Allow space for moving around and getting into and out of the cars parked in the garage, once bikes, ladders and the like are stacked against the walls. Attic trusses with a pull down ladder could be included; a great way to gain extra storage space for less used items. Other features that will reduce clutter may include built-in shelving and storage cupboards, hanging devices like hammocks suspended from the roof, and bike hooks. These can make a huge difference to the spaciousness of this very practical part of the house. Thinking of the garage doors themselves, these can be custom made to fit. While two or three single doors may be attractive for accessing a larger garage, weigh up garage door width and their practicality should a larger vehicle need to be stored in the garage at any time. Including one or more windows will allow natural light without the need to open the garage door. The glass can be frosted for privacy while a glass side or back door will provide access to the backyard. You might also include a garage door through to the backyard. Alternatively, a garage, carport, or parking space down the side may provide storage for a caravan, motorhome or boat and access the yard. Ensuring sufficient off-street parking space out front is also often overlooked and worth the investment.

Single doors into a larger garage are popular.

Three and four car garaging is popular.

Garage doors can be custom made to fit a particular space.

Extra garage space costs less than other parts of a home.

Buying a property at auction If you’re keen on a property that’s going to auction, preparation is everything. A successful bid means you are immediately committed to buy the property; you cannot seek legal advice, arrange finance or even get the property valued or inspected when the auction is over. That means you need to do all your due diligence in advance of auction day. Before the auction (usually after you’ve viewed the property), the real estate agent working for the seller should provide you with a copy of the terms and Contract of Sale, which sets out what chattels will be included with the property. This document will also tell you the amount of the deposit to be paid by the successful bidder, and when the balance of the payment must be made. These documents should be checked by your lawyer. You should consider having the property checked (preferably by a qualified inspector who has professional indemnity insurance and carries out their work in accordance with the New Zealand Property Inspection Standards and obtain an up-to-date Land Information Memorandum (LIM) from the local council. It’s a good idea to get a valuation of the property, especially as you are likely to require one if you need a loan. Some websites provide free estimated market values that may be useful. There’s a lot to take in at an auction and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. If you can, go along to one as an observer to see how the process works before you actually want to buy. Remember that the auctioneer is working for the seller and they want to get the highest price possible for the property.

or another person working on behalf of the seller, such as a real estate agent. An auctioneer can also use a pre-auction offer to start the bidding. The auction continues until there is only one bidder left. At that stage, if the reserve price is reached or beaten, the highest bidder will be the successful buyer. If the reserve price isn’t reached, the seller can tell the auctioneer to stop the auction without selling the property. If the auction is stopped without a sale, the highest bidder may have the opportunity to negotiate with the seller (via their agent) after the auction. If this happens, the terms and conditions of the auction no longer apply and you can negotiate new ones. For independent advice on buying property, check out www.buyingahome. reaa.govt.nz.

At an auction, the auctioneer will read the terms and conditions of the sale aloud and announce if a reserve price has been set. They must also state whether the seller has reserved the right to bid during the auction. This is called ‘vendor bidding’ and it is only allowed under strict circumstances, such as when the property being auctioned has a reserve price; when the reserve price has not yet been met; and the auctioneer has made it clear that the bid being made is a vendor bid. They must do this by saying, ‘this is a vendor bid’ rather than using any jargon. Auctioneers sometimes use vendor bids as a way to start off the bidding, or to move the bidding towards the reserve price. Vendor bids can be made by the auctioneer,
