Olympics goal for Hannah „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding PROMISING swimmer Hannah Bates is Bahamas-bound – but she needs the community to help get her there. A quiz night will be held to help the Lincoln resident get to the 2017 Commonwealth Youth Games. Earlier this month Hannah, 16, returned home from the Australian age group swimming championships with a gold and

silver medal, qualifying for the youth games. Hannah was the only South Island member of the 23-strong New Zealand team in Brisbane and the first ever representative from the Selwyn Aquatic Centre. She is now part of a team of 34 Kiwis aged between 14 to 18 selected to compete in the Commonwealth Youth Games by the New Zealand Olympic Committee. •Turn to page 5

Rolleston’s newest neighbourhood

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding IF YOU live in Darfield, you are drinking the best-tasting water in New Zealand. A blind taste test at the New Zealand Water Industry Operators Group conference decided the township has the tastiest water. It comes after a major upgrade to the Darfield water supply in 2014 with the installation of two deep ground bores, a 1000m3 concrete reservoir and a booster pumping station. A district council spokeswoman said the bores source the artesian water from deep underground meaning the water is naturally filtered providing a safe supply. Mayor Sam Broughton, who lives in Darfield, said it was nice to celebrate some good news after the improvements were made. He said the two bores provide an increase in reliability over the summer and if work needed to be done on either of the bores the supply will still be continuous.  “I do enjoy the taste of water. It’s fresh,” Mr Broughton said.  Darfield Community Committee chairman and Malvern Butchery owner Paddy McKay said the water quality speaks for itself and it is pretty good.  •Turn to page 7

Tuesday May 30 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

IT’S GREAT to see young people putting in the hard yards to achieve their sporting goals. On page 1 today, Lincoln’s Hannah Bates is doing just that as she continues on her promising swimming path. In July, she’s off to the Bahamas for a Commonwealth meet, which could help springboard her to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Realistically though, she is looking further ahead to the 2024 Olympics when she will be in her mid-20s and at the top of her game. The hard yards are getting up just after 5am to train for a couple of hours, off to school and then when she gets home it’s back into the pool again. There’s a quiz night in July and a givealittle page to help Hannah achieve her goals. Support them. -Barry Clarke

Parking problem at busy pie shop

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding OVERCROWDED car parking at Sheffield’s popular pie shop has created a spate of roading issues. Growing numbers of cars and trucks parking “dangerously” outside The Famous Sheffield Pie Shop has the community calling out for the district council and the New Zealand Transport Agency to David Ward change the layout of State Highway 73, Duke and Vogel Sts, before an accident happens. Vehicles backing out from the pie shop onto SH73, customers parking on neighbour’s berms and speeding have all raised concern.  “We understand we have created this busy business . . . but we have never had any help as far as the district council goes,” owner Loretta Paterson said.  She said a group of district councillors visited the area about four years ago to assess the car parking issue but nothing eventuated. In the past financial year

DANGER: Trucks parking outside The Famous Sheffield Pie Shop has raised concerns over traffic having limited visibility when exiting Duke St onto State Highway 73.

the bakery has an increase of 3000 sales and is planning to renovate. Costings are under way for the bakery to be turned into a cafe with more seating, customer toilets, a breakfast menu and children’s play area. Following a recent meeting with Mrs Paterson, the Sheffield/Waddington Community Committee sent a submission to the district council asking it to improve the roading.  It asked for there to be “no parking” on the left side of SH73 travelling west between Malvern Hills Rd and the pie shop.  In the submission, committee chairwoman Val MacKenzie

AMY ADAMS

said vehicles are parking dangerously on the highway and it needed urgent attention. Other suggestions included lowering the speed limit from 70km/h to 50km/h and making adjacent street, Duke St, oneway with vehicles exiting via Vogel St.  This would help stop customers parking on neighbour’s lawns on Duke St as well addressing problems around the lack of visibility drivers have exiting the street onto the main highway due to vehicles parked outside the business. Mrs Paterson said the shop would also like to see Duke St widened with parallel parking

put on the bakery side, curbing put in place and 10min parks on the main road. The bakery currently has 10 car parks located behind the building.  But the district council’s chief executive David Ward said following an on-site meeting earlier this month, it was agreed the community committee would formally request Duke St is upgraded. “That request has not yet been received, and no decisions on or commitments on further work has been made,” he said.  As for lowering the speed limit, the outcome is unlikely.  A NZTA safety team spokesman said while it is looking to improve parking on State Highway 73, the current speed limit is seen as appropriate. “However, the transport agency will investigate installing larger signs at the entrances of the township,” he said. It is estimated by NZTA nearly 1800 vehicles travel through the township each day. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you find car parking at The Famous Sheffield Pie Shop dangerous?

Your Local Views Be tidy at Arthur’s Pass Arthur’s Pass Association Committee chairman Richard Holyoake writes about the demands the township is facing as visitor numbers grow Arthur’s Pass village is a gem in the Arthur’s Pass National Park with a rich history and stunning scenery. It lies on State Highway 73, the midland rail line (both critical links between Canterbury and the West Coast) and on the Te Araroa trail running the length of New Zealand. The community is tight-knit and is made up of a small resident population and numerous bach-holders, all with a passion for the special character of the place. Its beauty is in its remoteness, the steep rocky slopes, the bush, the wildlife, the high rainfall and the big rivers. These features, and its proximity to Christchurch, also make it attractive with increasing numbers of trampers, backpackers and tourists passing through the area on an annual basis.

A number of these features also contribute to its vulnerability, illustrated by large slips closing the state highway earlier this year, and fire has also cut off access recently – along the state highway and on the midland line. Remoteness breeds resourcefulness and resilience, and the Arthur’s Pass community has this in spades – however, this will be more and more tested as visitor numbers increase. We are upgrading our community centre and have upgraded the squash court.  We recently lobbied for, and now have a recycling facility, and have regular community gatherings.   The community also fulfils a huge role in pest control, now managing about 800 predator (stoats and possums) traps in the area – much of this voluntary. More visitors means more

SCENIC: The midland rail line through Arthur’s Pass takes a large number of tourists to the village.

demand on toilets, camping areas, walking tracks and other visitor facilities – or even worse could mean more litter along the road side, more uncontrolled toileting, more fires, more road accidents and more mountain rescues. Locals provide a volunteer fire brigade (emergency response) dealing with emergencies. They assist tourists, and clean up the mess after careless visitors. Partnership is required to protect what we have, not just with agencies such as Department of Conservation and district council, but with all our visitors.  Everyone needs to do their bit and be a safe and tidy Kiwi.

SET PLAN: The new skate park will be built where the seating and barbecue shelter near the Lincoln Event Centre are currently located.

A reader responds to an article in Selwyn Times about the new skate park which will go next to the Lincoln Event Centre Jacqueline Reid – I can understand the reluctance of Lincoln residents to have a skate park located close to their homes. We owned a property close to the Prebbleton skate park and it does impact on a property’s sale ability. We found numerous potential purchasers who came through the open homes expressed concern about how close the skate facility was to neighbouring homes and felt this detracted from the appeal. There was increased vehicle traffic in a previously quiet culde-sac, we often had cars parking over our driveway and visitors to the park would often walk over our property to get to the park. There is also the constant noise

from skaters dropping their skateboards while preforming jumps. I understand the district council’s wish to cater for the youth of Selwyn. However, the local residents’ (ratepayer) concerns need to be heard and seriously considered before any future development is undertaken, especially within a subdivision. In spite of the district council’s assurances, these facilities do have an impact neighbouring properties.

Lincoln firefighters involved in big house blaze „„ By Caitlin Miles

INFLUX: The Coes Ford camping ground is one of the areas experiencing an increase in freedom campers.

A reader responds to an article in Selwyn Times about ensuring the district can cope with the influx of freedom campers David Taylor – Very simple. Keep it black and white. Do we want second-tier tourists who add little and cost New Zealanders heavily? Simple answer is no. Do we want high-quality tourists who add value? Yes. Ban freedom campers period. Make people stay in Department of Conservation camps or normal camping grounds. It’s not fair that campground owners invest and provide a good service. Why should people camp essentially where they like? This country attracts tourists based on our clean image and the beauty we have. Keep this up and no one will want to come to New Zealand, which will just be another trashed, filthy country like so many others. Tourism, if managed properly

and if we invest heavily into infrastructure, can work. But typical of all Governments, and at the local level too, they are reactive and lazy, rather than being proactive and anticipating likely outcomes before they happen. Our politicians and councillors are too self-serving and interested more in keeping their jobs than doing the hard yards necessary to protect what we have . . . the environment is being severely compromised all in the name of money. As a New Zealander, I’m far from happy the way we are being sold out. Like the state of our waterways, it’s a disgrace. Clean and green is the biggest con. New Zealanders will soon wake up, as will the rest of the world, and see that New Zealand is a rout. We invest too much on marketing how great we are. I only wish so much effort and money went into protecting what we have for future generations. Sustainability springs to mind.

LINCOLN firefighters were among those who attended a major house fire in Kaituna yesterday. A paraplegic man was rescued from the fire by a farm worker. The blaze consumed the wooden, 100-year-old-plus prop-

erty quickly. The man’s son, Brent Thomas, said he was just thankful his father got out. Six fire crews from Lincoln, Akaroa, Little River and Christchurch battled the blaze. Little River chief fire officer David Irving said the fire started in the roof.

The blaze burned through the beams of the house and it collapsed. The fire service received multiple calls. The fire started at about 10.35am. When firefighters arrived the house was “well-involved.” It was too early to say what the cause of the fire may have been.

Hannah’s goal to swim at Olympics •From page 1 Hannah, who attends Christchurch Girls’ High School, said while there is no expectation to get into the finals, or to win medals while in the Bahamas, she has big plans to qualify for the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. “Tokyo is definitely on the cards to go hopefully . . . but if I don’t make Tokyo then definitely the 2024 Summer Olympics,” she said. She thinks the 2024 Olympics will be a more realistic goal. If she qualifies for the Olympics, she joins other swimming Olympians from CGHS – Lydia Lydia Lipscombe and Sarah Catherwood (Atlanta 1996) and Helen Norfolk (Beijing 2008) Her weekly training sched-

ule sees her swim eight to nine sessions a week morning and evening at the Selwyn Aquatic Centre along with attending the gym three times and doing a pilates class once a week. She said she gets up at 5.10am on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday to train at the aquatic centre while also training Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evenings. But for now Hannah (left) is concentrating on the youth games, with her weekly training schedule made up of swimming at the Selwyn Aquatic Centre eight to nine times, along with attending the gym three times and doing a pilates class. Hannah will need to raise $6000 to get to the

Commonwealth Youth Games late July. “I just want to embrace the experience, culture and going over again with a New Zealand team,” Hannah said. The quiz night will be held at the Silver Dollar Bar and Restaurant, Jones Rd, Rolleston, from 7-9pm, July 3. Teams can be up to six people and will cost $10 per person. •To help Hannah get to the Bahamas go to https:// givealittle.co.nz/cause/ hannahrepresentsnz or supporters can follow Hannah’s journey by giving her Facebook page “Hannah swimming my life” a like. •To book tickets phone Susan on 027 682 6992 or email bates-family@clear. net.nz

Rate increase to manage stormwater

Darfield water judged the best in NZ •From page 1 The judging panel made up of representatives from the WIOG, chemical company IXOM and Altitude Brewing decided Darfield had the best-tasting water based on how it looks, smells and tastes. The improved quality is a large turn-around in the township’s water supply. In 2012, animal effluent in Darfield’s water supply was the cause of a gastroenteritis outbreak affecting more than 110 people. Darfield Bakery owner Daryl Collier agreed the water quality was good since the new bores were installed but it took the district council a long time to take responsibility for the outbreak in 2012. Stanwood Holdings Ltd director Jim Brooker, who was responsible for installing the first water well west of the township on resident Jill Logan’s property said the news is a big boost for the area. “It is a big thing for Darfield, we need this boost,” he said.  Darfield Garden Centre and Florist manager Angela Lalor said there are no complaints from the plants over the water quality. Meanwhile, a decision on a

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding RESIDENTS CAN expect a rate increase of $85 per property in areas where the district council manages stormwater. The issue was decided at Annual Plan discussions on Thursday. Nearly 14,000 properties will be affected by the decision. They include 5272 properties in Rolleston, Lincoln (2035), Prebbleton (1462) and Darfield (1112). Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall said the increase provides a better way of managing stormwater across the community. “There will be winners and losers, there will be some who will see their rates go up and some will see it go down. It will give us a larger reserve in the future as issues come along,” Cr Lyall said. A health hub in Rolleston is also on the cards along with an extension for the Selwyn Aquatic Centre also approved. Mr Broughton said it was decided the libraries will not be open on Sundays after the submissions were received were not supportive of the idea. But the library hours will be open for longer on weekdays.

Jaz Tuihana Vivian Our People Tomboy takes non gender-based Jaz Tuihana Vivian, 22, grew up in Southbridge and is now making her mark in the fashion world. She talks to Georgia O’ConnorHarding Tell me about your fashion brand Losers Are Cool (LAC Crews)? I have always kind of had the dream of doing a tomboy clothing line but I have never really known enough about it. So I did a business course last year and it made me a little bit more confident about releasing it. A couple of my friends are in the fashion industry. I bounced ideas off them, came up with a name, put it all together and released it. There is actually nothing online that is purely tomboy clothing. What I wanted to do was take away that awkward shopping down the wrong aisle thing and make it all online so people don’t have to go into the shop.  What made you realise you were a tomboy? I have always been a tomboy out playing rugby and getting muddy with the boys. I am not

a girly girl at all. Mum always tells me about when I was a kid she would dress me in a pretty pink dress and then I would go steal my brothers’ clothes just before we were about to go out. I played rugby for eight years. I had to take time off this year because it was getting too busy but I am into staying fit and healthy. It

makes you feel better at the end of the day. Tell me about your idea to have non-gender based clothing? I think these days in our society you know everyone is breaking down the barriers. And a lot of things have come to head that you know back in the day would be

scorned upon. I think with everyone breaking down these barriers why not me as well. I don’t understand why there is girl and boy clothing – it just puts that line in the middle. Have you always had a passion for equality? Just growing up being a tomboy you always have your battles. You have people at school and stuff saying things to you and it makes high school really uncomfortable. I thought if I could make it easy for people that are younger, that is me doing my bit. Was it a mission creating these clothes? It was a big mission but like I said, I had a few friends in the fashion industry so I bumped heads with them and thought what isn’t working about the clothes now and what I can improve on. Together we came up with a few ideas. I made it very basic so I can add onto it. My sister Jayde Vivian is an upcoming model so she was my model and her friends are interested in photography. Everything about it means a lot to me. It hasn’t been about making money. It is about making a difference. How did you get into the business side of things?

Definitely, I left high school at year 12. I was never into school but I knew I had to carry on doing something so I went to the New Zealand Institute of Sport thinking I would be a personal trainer and then I did a marketing paper in the curriculum. It was just what we had to do and I aced it. My teacher pulled me aside and said that was the best marketing paper she had seen. I was like why don’t I venture from that and do something with it rather than sitting in a gym all day. That is when I got into business. I was the class clown at school and it is a better feeling being successful now having not actually enjoyed school at all. What were your experiences like at school and how did you stay true to yourself? I had a lot of support from my family. Especially my mum. We have quite an open relationship. When I came home from school she could tell I was upset. I think that was the best. There were a few teachers at school I really related to. I think a mixture of that and people telling me I am unique is what pulled me through. But I definitely got bullied a lot.

clothing to the fashion world Getting out of school must have been the best for you? Absolutely, I was definitely a misfit. But I wouldn’t encourage anyone to just drop out of school - you have definitely got to have a plan. Mum said as soon as I had a plan I could sign out. How did you come up with the Losers are Cool idea? It just stemmed from school. I thought you look around the classroom and you have your popular kids, nerdy kids and out-right losers. The losers end up being the ones everyone wants to be around because they are genuinely the most successful ones. Do you think people began to look at you more positively as you all got older? Yes definitely, I have people messaging me now saying: ‘I know we didn’t get on at school but what you are doing is awesome.’ You get the support from those that influenced you to do this. It makes you feel a lot better. It all happened for a reason. What are your other passions? I work in hospitality as a bar tender at The Sideline Sports Bar in Richmond. I do my clothing line throughout the day. My job opened my eyes. I have been at the bar almost four years. I think being in the hospitality industry and

seeing people from all walks of life has opened my eyes to equality issues in society. Everyone should be themselves and not be put down. What do you think of the Southbridge community? I love going to my mum’s in Southbridge. The people there are genuinely interested in what everyone is doing. I know you get the small town stuff but people are interested in you going far. I like that aspect of country life. Everyone is genuinely happy and they have been supportive to people of all ages. One of my mum’s friends bought my own clothing. During those tough times at high school how did you overcome being bullied? I still get really bad anxiety. You have just got to remind yourself you are going in the right direction. It is hard at high school, there is the councillor but people feel intimidated going there because it seems like they have got an issue or weak. You have to find someone to talk to – even if it is just a teacher you have a comfortable relationship with. I am a pretty outgoing person so I didn’t find it that hard. Tell me a bit about your sister Jayde? At the start of the year she went

to New York Fashion Week. She is signed with NZ Models & Talent. They took a group of girls over there to Australia to do workshops. She said it was an amazing experience and opened her eyes up to the industry. She has left school end of year 12 as well and I suppose she is trying to find her feet. My brother Tyler is in a band called Idiio. It is short for idiosyncratic meaning unique. He used to be in a band in Christchurch called the Make Believes. I think we are all pretty creative. Are there any other plans you have for the future? What I really want to do is be a wedding planner and with my clothing line I want to make tom boy wedding apparel. That is my end goal. I want to do suits but tailored to fit women better. I could go into the dresses. I could make a dress that is more comfortable. Have you always had an interest in weddings? I have always been fascinated with love I think. It is amazing and with all this stuff going on with the  lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community. I think it is important to try and embrace and make people feel comfortable when it comes to their super special day in the life.

Legal Assistance Online A new concept in legal services has been created by John Shingleton, with the establishment of Online Lawyers in June 2016. “After years of working in a legal system that seemed clumsy and time-consuming, I came up with the idea of a digitally based law practice. My aim was to offer an efficient and convenient, customer focussed service with a fast turnaround time,” explains John. John sought IT advice, on how a secure, encrypted, cloud-based interactive legal service could be an on-line reality then six months of planning ensued before the business was launched. “As soon as I decided what to do, it was just a matter of timing and getting the systems in place,” adds John. The level of flexibility the business offers has proven popular with clients leading to Sharon Scott recently joining John to look after the conveyancing side of the business. Sharon is experienced in in all aspects of conveyancing work, a great asset for clients purchasing property in what is now a complex field, with the effects of the earthquakes, insurer requirements and new finance laws all to be taken into consideration. Sharon knows the process and can guide clients through these potential hurdles. “I like to get to know my clients so I can offer them the best advice and service, completing the transaction either remotely or visiting clients at a time that suits them,” says Sharon. Together, John and Sharon share over 45 years’ experience in the legal field. They have expertise in all aspects of conveyancing including buying and selling sections, residential homes, commercial properties and farms. John also specialises in setting up and overseeing trusts, employment law, health and safety law and other areas of business law. Online Lawyers do not have centralised offices, instead working locally within

their community, utilising the Internet and videoconferencing to explain and share information as well as witness and record legal document signing. This reduces business expense and increases their availability to clients. Canterbury based, John and Sharon will also call on clients, at their premises or homes, or meet them in a café or private purpose built hot desk facility that might be booked for a certain length of time. A key feature of Online Lawyers is they are up-front, providing a pre-agreed scoping of instructions and competitive set price for each job with fixed rates for conveyancing, which are listed on their website: www.onlinelawyers. nz along with other information about their services. Clients are able to budget for the legal component of their activities and confirm they wish to proceed before the contract is taken on. To contact Online Lawyers, call John on 022 658 0434 or email: john@onlinelawyers. nz, while for conveyancing assistance, call Sharon on 022 584 8135 or email: sharon@ onlinelawyers.nz.

NATURE: These oak trees will form part of one of the reserves at Falcon’s Landing.

Development for Rolleston SOARING population growth in Rolleston is fuelling the launch of a new residential subdivision, Falcon’s Landing. The 62ha development is situated off Lincoln Rolleston Rd, in a low-density area on Branthwaite Drive. It comprises 600 sections ranging in size from 450 sq m-1000 sq m, with prices starting at $160,000. Construction is due to start in September and the first titles are expected to be through towards the end of 2018. This first release will consist of 120 sections. The project is the work

of locally owned Gillman Wheelans, an established developer that was also responsible for Levi Park, in Rolleston. Gillman Wheelans director Hamish Wheelans said such was the demand for Levi Park that the company had since been seeking a quality block of land on which to build a new subdivision. “We really liked this piece of land because of its location and we’re keen to try and save some of the existing plantings, including part of a hazelnut orchard and some established oak trees.” Falcon’s Landing will include Gillman Wheelans’

hallmark tennis court, along with a wide range of recreational spaces. “One of the key facets of subdivisions is ensuring that there are great green spaces for the community both for visual appeal and to use. You have to really understand what’s important to people and how they want to live. Good amenities are crucial,” Mr Wheelans said. Gillman Wheelans has successfully completed 19 low and medium density subdivisions over the past 15 years, including Preston Downs in West Melton, and The Woods in Prebbleton.

Sports, academia and nature at West Melton CROSS-country, basketball, trips to Kowhai Sanctuary and celebrating successful teachers has made for a busy time at West Melton School. About 30 year 4 to 8 pupils, also known as the Eco Warriors, along with a group of parents travelled to the school’s planting site, Kowhai Sanctuary, on Thompsons Rd. The purpose was to monitor last year’s plantings of natives as part of the Matariki celebrations carried out by the school’s year 3 and 4 team. Following an examination by the Eco Warriors, it was estimated about 90 per cent of the plants had survived. The pupils also tracked the number of birds and located different types of insects with Enviroschools Canterbury facilitator Matt Stanford and Te Ara Kakariki Kids Discovery Plantout programme coordinator Lou Drage. Meanwhile, the school entered two year 5 and year 6 teams into the Selwyn district basketball primary competition. In their first game, the school teams played each other.

EDUCATION: Teachers Bronwen Seaward, Carolyn Sutherland and Natasha O’Connor completed a post-graduate certificate.

Promotions and marketing officer Rita Spadoni said there was a lot of enthusiasm and laughter as everyone had a go. “Because we were having so much fun, we forgot to ask what the end score was,” she said. Three of the school’s top teachers were recognised at its celebration of learn-

Lincoln surprise package in UC Championship „„ By Gordon Findlater

PASSION: Konor Chamberlain during the haka. PHOTOS: MARTIN HUNTER

LINCOLN COMBINED have been handed just their second defeat of the season as they fell to St Andrew’s College 58-18 on Saturday. While it could be seen as a 30-point defeat, it could also be taken as a remarkable turnaround when compared to the result from the same fixture two years ago, which saw Lincoln defeated 0-91. In previous years, Lincoln have been seen as easy beats. However, they proved that wrong with a 15-10 round 1 upset over St Bede’s College,

which have won five of the last nine championships. Part of Lincoln’s rise this season could be put down to the inclusion of players from Darfield High School, Akaroa Area School and Ellesmere College, hence the name Lincoln Combined. For some of the boys that means a long journey for training, but new Lincoln coach Michael Wilson says everyone has bought into the new culture. “It’s been working really well. The boys all get along and most of them know each other from growing up through local club rugby, where they have played

against each other,” said Wilson. Lincoln put in a valiant effort on Saturday, but in the end were overpowered by St Andrew’s who put in a dominant display in their club day match. Lincoln face another tough test on Saturday when they travel to St Thomas of Canterbury College. The boys’ school have been unpredictable this season, but at times have shown they are capable of competing with any championship team and recently recorded their first win over St Bede’s in 34 years. •More sport, pages 21 and 23

Free Wi-Fi zones

coming!

Speed limit areas changing in West Melton The 70km speed zone on State Highway 73 in West Melton township is being extended to take in some of the towns new subdivisions. The NZ Transport Agency which manages the state highway network is altering the 70km zone so it extends around 250 metres further east. The extension will enable safety improvements to be made - the first of these will be the installation of a new pedestrian refuge island and crossing point opposite the Wilfield subdivision to the Gainsbourgh subdivision. Further crossings are planned either side of the Weedons Ross Road intersection on State Highway 73 and flush medians will also be added on the State Highway in conjunction with the crossing points.

SELWYN TIMES

Notices COUNCIL SERVICES ON QUEEN’S BIRTHDAY Rubbish and recycling collection will occur as normal on Queen’s Birthday Monday 5 June, Pines Resource Recovery Park will be open from 10am-4pm. Council libraries and service centres, the Lincoln Event Centre, Rolleston Community Centre will be closed on 5 June. The Selwyn Aquatic Centre will be open from 8am-8pm.

A new walkway was recently developed from the northern end of the new Wilfield subdivision along State Highway 73 to connect to West Melton’s central township area and the West Melton Domain. The crossing points will provide a safer crossing option for people using these footpaths. The pedestrian improvements being undertaken have been a collaborative effort between the NZ Transport Agency, the Council, private land owners and developers in the area.

Three free Wi-Fi zones will be operating in Selwyn soon, with one of the zones already available in Darfield. The new zones will offer free public Wi-Fi access from central facilities in Darfield, Lincoln and Tai Tapu. The Wi-Fi zones are being provided by the Council through the Spark network and designed to be used by both locals and visitors. They will allow people to connect to ultra-fast broadband with usage not time or data limited. The zone which is already operating is based at Darfield Library and extends approximately 50 metres around the library location. A similar 50 metre free Wi-Fi zone will start operating outside Lincoln Library in June. A third free Wi-Fi zone is planned to start operating in central Tai Tapu by the end of the year, with the site yet to be selected.

Malvern and Ellesmere Garden waste days successful Over 22 tonnes of green waste and 7 tonnes of scrap metal were collected from Ellesmere and Malvern residents recently and have now been recycled or composted. The clean-up days were held in April and were a chance for people to clean up their gardens and backyards by disposing of garden waste and scrap metal at a local collection point. The Council’s Solid Waste Manager Andrew Boyd says the days are a way to offer a low cost waste disposal option to help reduce the amount of fly tipping and avoid junk building up on properties, while also supporting local community groups.

On the roads this week Construction of a temporary unsealed footpath is planned on the north side of Birchs Road in Lincoln. 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. Maddisons Road is suggested as an alternative route at peak times. 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.

Christchurch Southern Motorway extension There will be changes to the traffic setups on both Weedons Ross Road and Weedons Road over the next couple of weeks. The oneway system remains on Waterholes Road from Hamptons Road to 833 Waterholes Road running south towards Robinsons Road with detours in place, with changes to the road alignment to allow for construction of the bridge. Please be alert to changes in the traffic management, follow the on-site signage and drive to the conditions.

Nearly $1,500 was also raised at the two days which will be given to the Malvern Lions and Ellesmere Heritage Park who staffed the days. The Malvern Lions Club wished to thank the community for taking part in the day. They plan to donate the funding they received to local sports groups. Groups who would like to receive funding from the Lions are encouraged to contact them and register their interest.

Did you know you can access all of the above and more for free with your library membership? Selwyn Libraries are here to help! Come along to fortnightly free drop-in sessions at any Selwyn Library to learn about the eCollections your library membership gives you access to, 24 hours a day from anywhere! These will be perfect if you have ever wondered how you can use the eCollections available from the library but never had the chance to ask. · · · ·

Help keep our drains flowing

Lincoln on Mondays from 10.30–11.30am (first session 12 June) Leeston on Tuesdays from 10.30–11.30am (first session 13 June) Darfield on Wednesdays from 1–2pm (first session 21 June) Rolleston on Fridays from 1–2pm (first session 23 June)

With the recent wet weather in autumn, drains can become blocked with leaves.

The first session will be about ePlatform, which provides you with 24 hour access to a huge collection of eBooks. You can read eBooks anywhere, any time. The second session will be about BorrowBox, a growing collection of eAudiobooks. You can listen to over 1,000 eAudiobooks anywhere, any time!

You can help avoid flooding around your property and street by removing any leaves that are clogging drains. Council contractors do regularly clear drains but leaves can quickly build up in windy conditions at autumn time.

Feel free to bring your own devices, and any questions you’ve been wanting to ask your library about the eCollections. Visit www.selwynlibraries.co.nz for more information on session topics.

Free Wi-Fi zones

coming!

Speed limit areas changing in West Melton The 70km speed zone on State Highway 73 in West Melton township is being extended to take in some of the towns new subdivisions. The NZ Transport Agency which manages the state highway network is altering the 70km zone so it extends around 250 metres further east. The extension will enable safety improvements to be made - the first of these will be the installation of a new pedestrian refuge island and crossing point opposite the Wilfield subdivision to the Gainsbourgh subdivision. Further crossings are planned either side of the Weedons Ross Road intersection on State Highway 73 and flush medians will also be added on the State Highway in conjunction with the crossing points.

SELWYN TIMES

Notices COUNCIL SERVICES ON QUEEN’S BIRTHDAY Rubbish and recycling collection will occur as normal on Queen’s Birthday Monday 5 June, Pines Resource Recovery Park will be open from 10am-4pm. Council libraries and service centres, the Lincoln Event Centre, Rolleston Community Centre will be closed on 5 June. The Selwyn Aquatic Centre will be open from 8am-8pm.

A new walkway was recently developed from the northern end of the new Wilfield subdivision along State Highway 73 to connect to West Melton’s central township area and the West Melton Domain. The crossing points will provide a safer crossing option for people using these footpaths. The pedestrian improvements being undertaken have been a collaborative effort between the NZ Transport Agency, the Council, private land owners and developers in the area.

Three free Wi-Fi zones will be operating in Selwyn soon, with one of the zones already available in Darfield. The new zones will offer free public Wi-Fi access from central facilities in Darfield, Lincoln and Tai Tapu. The Wi-Fi zones are being provided by the Council through the Spark network and designed to be used by both locals and visitors. They will allow people to connect to ultra-fast broadband with usage not time or data limited. The zone which is already operating is based at Darfield Library and extends approximately 50 metres around the library location. A similar 50 metre free Wi-Fi zone will start operating outside Lincoln Library in June. A third free Wi-Fi zone is planned to start operating in central Tai Tapu by the end of the year, with the site yet to be selected.

Malvern and Ellesmere Garden waste days successful Over 22 tonnes of green waste and 7 tonnes of scrap metal were collected from Ellesmere and Malvern residents recently and have now been recycled or composted. The clean-up days were held in April and were a chance for people to clean up their gardens and backyards by disposing of garden waste and scrap metal at a local collection point. The Council’s Solid Waste Manager Andrew Boyd says the days are a way to offer a low cost waste disposal option to help reduce the amount of fly tipping and avoid junk building up on properties, while also supporting local community groups.

On the roads this week Construction of a temporary unsealed footpath is planned on the north side of Birchs Road in Lincoln. 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. Maddisons Road is suggested as an alternative route at peak times. 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.

Christchurch Southern Motorway extension There will be changes to the traffic setups on both Weedons Ross Road and Weedons Road over the next couple of weeks. The oneway system remains on Waterholes Road from Hamptons Road to 833 Waterholes Road running south towards Robinsons Road with detours in place, with changes to the road alignment to allow for construction of the bridge. Please be alert to changes in the traffic management, follow the on-site signage and drive to the conditions.

Nearly $1,500 was also raised at the two days which will be given to the Malvern Lions and Ellesmere Heritage Park who staffed the days. The Malvern Lions Club wished to thank the community for taking part in the day. They plan to donate the funding they received to local sports groups. Groups who would like to receive funding from the Lions are encouraged to contact them and register their interest.

DUEL: Southbridge’s Isilie Fine wins the battle in the air.

Southbridge advance to semi-finals „„ By Gordon Findlater SOUTHBRIDGE have advanced to the semi-finals of the Combined Country Cup after a hard fought 31-25 win over Waihora on Saturday. They also got revenge on last year’s final which Waihora won 31-24 in June. Southbridge dominated the

opening 40 minutes and went into the sheds with a 24-8 advantage, courtesy of two tries from speedy winger Cameron Sheat. Southbridge scored again early in the second half, which extended the lead to 31-8, before Waihora launched a spirited comeback. In the final minutes, Southbridge found themselves holding on to a slim lead and down to

14-men. “The whole team stood up in the last 15 minutes. We were camped in our half with a man in the sin-bin, but the guys showed great character to hold on,” said Southbridge coach Mike Rowe. They now host Lincoln on Saturday in another all-Ellesmere clash, in which they will play for a spot in the grand-final. The

two teams met in the opening round of the competition when Southbridge claimed the Murray Cooper Shield. “They’ll be a much-improved team since then. They will have done their homework and they have one of the best forward packs in the competition,” said Rowe. Lincoln were the only quarter-

finalists to win on the road when they defeated Glenmark 19-15. Quarter-final results Darfield 17-16 Oxford, Rakaia 20-15 Prebbleton, Southbridge 31-25 Waihora, Lincoln 19-15 Glenmark. Semi-final fixtures Darfield v Rakaia, Southbridge v Lincoln

Hororata Village Bar & Café

Hororata’s Butchers Beef Roll No need to fear white-tails Voted in New Zealand’s Top 5 With thousands of cafés, it is no mean feat to have your sausage roll voted in the top five in New Zealand. Recently, Coast radio station conducted a six week search to find the country’s best sausage roll. Hororata Village Bar & Café’s Butchers Beef Roll received hundreds of votes and after final judging, carried out by Masterchef winner Brett McGregor and Coast Radio morning host Brian Kelly, the beef roll was placed in the Top 5 in New Zealand. “The win’s exciting for our Butchers Pie Brand,” says Jason Kupe who with Jarnia, owns and operates Hororata Village Bar & Café.

Professionally trained butcher turned pastry cook, Jason has perfected his skills, baking the Butchers Pie and Beef Roll on site at their Hororata café. Jason knew he had a beauty when he created the Butchers Beef Roll. This mighty big sausage roll along with their Butchers Pie, have been popular with customers since the couple took over the business, five years ago. “Our Butchers Beef Roll is made from quality ingredients and encased in flaky pastry. It has a touch of curry with cream cheese through the middle of the meat so it’s moist and really tasty,” says Jason. While the bar and café missed out on the title of best sausage roll, they are delighted in the great achievement of making the top five in New Zealand. “Our customers are our biggest judges,” adds Jason. “We’d like to say a big thank you to them for voting for us.”

Jarnia and Jason’s Butchers Beef Roll was judged in the top five in New Zealand.

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 NOCTURNAL spider commonly seen stealthily lurking inside on the floor, wall or ceiling is the whitetailed spider. There are two species in New Zealand, one in the North Island (Lampona murina) and one in the South Island (Lampona cylindrata), but both originate from Australia where they are part of a complex of 57 species. The South Island species (L. cylindrata) is the larger of the two species ranging from 12-20mm in length and was first recorded in Nelson in 1913.

FEARMONGERING: Studies from the New Zealand Medical Journal in 2004 found no adverse effects resulted from patients supposedly bitten by whitetailed spiders. ​

The spiders have grey bodies with two or four pale markings on abdomen as well as the distinctive creamy-white tail, giving the spider its name. The female has a larger oval abdomen, while the male’s abdomen is thinner. They hunt other spiders – in particular the grey house spider, another Australian species. White-tails go onto webs of other spiders where the feign a struggling insect and ambush the owner. Considerable media attention occurred in the 1990s following unsubstantiated reports of

necrotizing arachnidism from white-tailed spider bites and has fostered considerable public anxiety about these spiders. However, based on a New Zealand Medical Journal article in 2004, where the authors studied patients supposedly bitten by white-tailed spiders, no adverse effects resulted from the bites. In fact none of the patients actually reported they observed a whitetailed spider biting them. The authors concluded that “much of the fear that surrounds these spiders is unwarranted.”

Gardening Dig out your gumboots WHILE THE beginning of winter can be wet, cold and miserable, there are still many important tasks to be carried out in the garden, such as harvesting winter vegetables, completing annual pruning, planting new fruit trees and watching newly-planted strawberries break into growth. Winter vegetables should now start maturing and will be ready for harvesting (if they aren’t already). Results will be that much more improved where vegetable gardens have been raised to avoid waterlogging over the wet winter months. Continue distributing compost around vegetables to help absorb excess water from typical winter downfalls. Vegetables to harvest include broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, leeks, lettuce, parsnips, silverbeet and spinach. Continue sowing seeds of broad beans, onions, peas, radish and spinach directly into well prepared and drained soil. Old crowns of rhubarbs can be divided and replanted into permanent positions around 600mm apart. Rhubarb thrives in rich soil so add plenty of compost when planting Winter displays of annuals should now be in full bloom, including alyssum, calendulas, lobelia, nem-

TASTY: Rhubarb thrives in rich soil

esias, pansies, poppies, primulas, snapdragons, stock and sweet peas. All these flowering annuals can also be successfully grown in containers or large tubs and brings life to dull parts of the garden or decks during winter months. The best selection of deciduous fruit trees are now available in garden centres and it is a good time to start planting. June is the main month for pruning your existing deciduous fruit trees such as; apples, apricots, nectarines, peaches, pears and plums. With young trees, it’s important to develop a strong structure that will carry fruiting wood in successive years. Older trees may require more detailed pruning. This involves pruning out old wood that is no longer providing fruit and removing overlapping laterals or branches and any diseased wood. You can also prune

raspberries, boysenberries, loganberries and gooseberries now. In very general terms, remove all old growth, selecting vigorous growing wood. With climbing berry plants, select the strongest canes and tie them to a supporting framework. In June and July, garden centres are overflowing with new season ornamental trees and shrubs. Preparation of planting sites is critical. In most parts of New Zealand, the rose flowering season is finished. If leaf drop is complete, plants can now be pruned. Remove all dead wood and inward growing branches. Prune to outward facing buds and remove any wood that is narrower than pencil thick. If any plants have significant die back, remove it and burn. Apply a clean up spray of copper oxychloride after pruning.

New seasons roses are now available at garden centres. When you purchase your rose, it may be bare-rooted or potted. Bare-rooted plants are generally cheaper and will need to be planted as soon as possible. With potted varieties, be careful not to disturb the root system when you plant them. Roses can grow in a variety of soils as long as they have good drainage, so add in plenty of compost. Give your rose a generous watering to help the roots settle in and put a generous layer (about 5cm deep) of mulch around the base of the plant.

gardening without guesswork Question:

What can I do to protect my garden and plants from the bitter cold winter months ahead?

Answer:

As we approach the winter months, the gardening tasks tend to slow down. Now is a great time to protect your plants from the cooler temperatures, so when the single-digit temperatures arrive, your plants aren’t shocked by the cold. There are number of things that you can do to protect them, here are our top tips. Add a 10cm layer of bark mulch or compost to your gardens. The mulch will help to keep the soil at a more even temperature, and so the roots don’t suffer from the frosts. Cover any frost sensitive plants with cloth to protect them (we’ve already had some good frosts so more are bound to be on the way!). Make sure you secure them properly, you don’t want them flying off in the strong winds we get around Canterbury. Move plants in pots, containers and hanging baskets under some shelter. If you don’t have a greenhouse or conservatory, the eaves of the house will be the next best option. Make sure they aren’t facing the southerly winds, and that the plants are still getting sunlight!

MY PRIDE AND JOY

A Chevrolet experience It was the sporty stylish look of the 1961 Chevrolet Impala coupe that first attracted Anneliese to her car. She was just twenty at the time. “My father always had old American cars so it wasn’t a surprise that I shared the same passion,” explains Anneliese. “We spent a lot of time looking for a car, searching and considering options on eBay then I saw the 61. It was in the days of dial up Internet so bidding was slow and it took some time to work out whether I’d won the auction or not.” Some years later, Anneliese still owns and loves her car though it has been changed over the years, with her Chevrolet Impala coupe looking quite different from when it first arrived in New Zealand. “It’s been an on-going journey of restoration,” explains Anneliese. Over the years, the car has been totally rebuilt. The engine was rebuilt recently and in 2015 the interior stripped and refurbished; taken back to the original factory specification. This included restoring the window mechanisms, and replacing all interior hardware and upholstery. The 1961 Chevrolet Impala coupe has a 348 cu in, Tri-Power, big block V8 engine which was rebuilt by Rod Allen from New Plymouth. The 348 cu in, 280hp was a

factory option in 1961. In January this year, Anneliese took the car to Muscle Car Madness in Rangiora Named Ms Dxie, Anneliese where it was judged one of the Top Ten was just 20 when she got Cars. The event was a family affair with her 61 Chevrolet. husband, Mark and their daughters also enjoying the weekend. When Anneliese and Mark got married, she drove the bridesmaids to the church in her coupe then Mark took over the wheel to drive them to the reception at Mapua wharf in Nelson. Anneliese’s Chevrolet has featured in the New Zealand Hot Rod magazine and made the journey to the Beach Hop in Whangamata several times. The family enjoys attending car events and Anneliese gets into the spirit, dressing in 1960s vintage pin-up fashion. They all enjoy getting out for a day in Ms Dxie, as the car is fondly The 61 Chevrolet was judged a called.

Winter motoring

The district’s population and tourism numbers have steadily increased in the last five years with the result that Selwyn’s roads are now much busier. This and the onset of winter are good reasons to take extra care on the roads while having your vehicle serviced, before the seriously cold weather is on us will help ensure it is up to the job ahead. Driving in wintertime can mean negotiating damp and at times icy roads, as well as potentially dangerous conditions when there is heavy rain, hail, sleet, snow or fog. Visibility is improved when windscreen wiper blades are in good condition so why not have these checked at one of the automotive service centres around the district? After a dry patch, a residue of oil on the road when combined with a little rain can make the roads greasy and it will take longer to stop when braking. This is made worse if the tread on your tyres is worn or the brakes are in poor condition. In fact, tyres that are not road safe is a key reason for many WOF rejections while poor tyre pressure also makes vehicle handling and braking more difficult. Car batteries work harder in winter, something that is worth having checked and replaced if on the brink, to ensure the car will start on those cold frosty mornings. Most automotive centres or battery specialists are able to test the life of a battery in just a couple of minutes.

You will also want the heater working properly, while the air conditioning is a quick and efficient way to demist the windows so ask your mechanic to check these as well. As antifreeze loses its effectiveness with time, top this up to prevent the water in your vehicle’s cooling system from freezing and rust deteriorating the radiator and engine. A check over by your mechanic might also show up any mechanical issues that could impact on your vehicle’s reliability or safety factor. They can carry out a diagnostic test of your vehicle’s electrical systems too. Keep an eye on the due date for your warrant of fitness over winter as your insurance may be compromised if it has expired. You will also avoid a fine by having this up-to-date as well as your vehicle registered. Winter motoring means more driving in poor light or at night. It will be safer if your headlights are working and correctly adjusted. This, along with not following too close, by observing the two second rule, will mean you have sufficient time to stop. Lastly, ensure a clear road ahead before overtaking and never pass when there are double yellow lines or a bend ahead so you and other motorists are safe on the roads this winter.

PETS & PAWS

Oral hygiene for your cat or dog By Selwyn Veterinary Centre veterinarian Yolande Howell

Going on holiday? Give your pets the comfort of staying at home as you enjoy the break. For both daytime pet feeding and property care, our team will ensure your treasured pets are taken care of.

Jenny - Ph. 021 430 016 www.homesitselwyn.co.nz

You may be surprised to find out that dental and gum disease is the most common health problem in dogs and cats – with most developing gum disease by three years of age. Can you imagine how bad our teeth would get if we don’t brush our teeth for three or more years! Routine dental care for cats and dogs can be easy and will benefit your pet’s oral and overall health. Signs of dental disease may include: bad breath, yellow or brown deposits on the teeth, loss of appetite, sensitive to touch around the mouth, bleeding gums, loose teeth, difficulty chewing or pawing at the mouth or face. So, how does dental disease start? Teeth and gum disease starts when a film of bacteria coats the tooth known as plaque. Plaque hardens into tartar which can be seen as a thick yellow to brown layer on the teeth. Tartar irritates the gums and also creates an environment where bacteria thrive. As the disease gets worse the gums become tender, red and swollen. The gums eventually start pulling away from the teeth creating pockets that trap more bacteria and bits of food. As the gums recede, it may bleed and the tooth root becomes exposed, teeth may also become loose. Your pet will very likely feel pain or discomfort when eating. The bacteria will eventually enter the blood stream and they can create health problems and affect vital organs. What can we do about this? Pets, like people, require routine dental care from you and your vet. Regular checkups with your vet will help monitor your pet’s dental health, however if you suspect a problem don’t hesitate to contact your vet. After a vet check, they may recommend a dental procedure to clean your pet’s teeth and to treat any dental or gum disease. Unlike people cats and dogs will not sit in a chair and open their mouths for us to do these procedures; they will require general anaesthesia. Anaesthesia also allows for tooth extractions and pain medications are used in these circumstances. Prevention is definitely better than cure! There are several methods to help keep your pet’s teeth and gums clean and healthy. There are a variety of plaque reducing foods, treats, chews and toys.

Every animal is different, consult your vet on which combination of preventatives would suit your pet best. There is no substitute for regular brushing, which is why we do it ourselves to keep our teeth clean. Start early, pets can start having their teeth brushed at home, the younger they are the more likely you’ll succeed. Start slowly and gently, like all kinds of training. Reinforce with rewards and praise. There are specially designed pet toothbrushes and finger brushes, or use a baby toothbrush. Use pet toothpaste only because toothpaste for people is not safe for your pets to swallow. Begin by rubbing your pet’s teeth and gums with a soft finger brush, reward them and praise them when they are at ease. Then start incorporating the pet toothpaste and slowly increase the number of seconds you brush their teeth. Focusing on their teeth including the gum line then work up to 30 seconds of brushing for each side of the mouth at least a few times a week. This takes time so just do it gradually but if you should have any concerns, contact your vet practice and they will help you with the process. Bear in mind that some pets just wouldn’t tolerate brushing and this is where your vet can recommend other alternatives as mentioned above. If you require further information don’t hesitate to contact us at the Selwyn Veterinary Centre.

Top pet tip

Transporting your pet to and from the vet can be difficult. Ensure every passenger in the car is safe by using carriers that contain your animal. Keeping an animal contained, means they are less likely to distract the driver. Did you know that carriers can also be used for birthing/ whelping, as an indoor bed and also if a pet is recovering from surgery.

How property management can help

A property manager can take the stress out of renting an investment property.

Owning a rental has been popular with New Zealanders looking to diversify their investment portfolio. Managing such rentals has been less favoured and many investors are opting to engage a specialist property manager. When choosing a property manager, you will want one who ensures the rent is collected on time and the home and its grounds looked after. You will also want one who is conversant with the law surrounding rental properties and problems that can arise. For example, landlords are required by law to ensure current and operable smoke alarms are installed (long-life photoelectric if no alarms previously). They will also need to insulate their properties by 1st July

2019, and should observe their insurer’s requirements like advising when a property is vacant for an extended period of time. It is important to keep evidence of bond payments and lodge these promptly with Tenancy Services, holding tenancy details such as tenant names, record of tenancy and rent payments made. Reasonable tenant requests should also be responded to in a timely manner and the property kept in a suitable condition with necessary repairs and maintenance carried out. Having a property manager makes all these tasks easier and they can also sort out any repairs or maintenance needed on the property should you wish a hands-off approach to renting. Rental properties must have current operable smoke alarms.

“Property Managers fulfil the role of middle person between tenant and vendor,” explains Brendan Shefford (Big Red), Business Owner of Ray White Rolleston and West Melton. “It’s not uncommon for tenants to ask when looking at rental properties whether there will be an independent Property Manager handling the rental so that legal requirements and obligations are observed.” Rebecca Smith managed a number of her own rentals before taking on the role of Rental Manager for Property Brokers; looking after a large portfolio of rentals around the Darfield, Kirwee, West Melton, Rolleston and Burnham areas. She says that with the changing market and legal

environment, property management has become far more complex and specialised. “People skills are essential when liaising with landlords and tenants to ensure a smooth tenancy,” suggests Rebecca. Another concern is the potential for a property to be contaminated through drug use. Rebecca advises that Property Managers can also assist a landlord in organising a Meth testing before a tenancy starts and include the option for a test to be carried out during a tenancy, within the Tenancy Agreement. With so many considerations and the law around rental properties placing more responsibility on landlords, more people are likely to look to engage a professional, to take care of their investment portfolios.

Landlords must insulate their rental properties by 1 July 2019.

When it comes to home heating, ‘bang for your buck’ is essential and part of this is ensuring your home is adequately insulated. Did you know that a 2% gap in insulation can result in a 20% heat loss? This can make a huge difference to the comfort of your home. Insulation works by slowing heat loss from your home, enclosing it in a thermal envelope. This is why around 40% of heat is lost through the ceiling in the average uninsulated home. In addition to insulation, simple measures, such as using thermal curtains

Snuggle down and sealing gaps and cracks, will eliminate draughts and prevent warm air escaping where it shouldn’t. It also pays to remember that heating a room to a moderate constant temperature is much more efficient than a fluctuating heat. Designed to not only be practical and functional but to enhance the décor of your home, there is a home-heating option for every home, and everyone.

pump, in that there is an indoor unit and an outdoor unit, and by passing a refrigerant between them they transfer heat (or cooling) into a room. Unlike the high-wall system, where the indoor unit is visible, the ducted indoor unit is hidden away in the ceiling space and uses flexible ducts to pass the heat from room to room through vents in the ceiling, wall or floor.

GAS FIRES Providing fast, convenient and easily regulated heat, gas can bring a moderatesize room to a warm, comfortable temperature in about 10-15 minutes. Glass-fronted gas fireplaces are significantly more efficient than openfronted ones, and as gas fires are cleaner than wood-burning fires they are favoured in clean-air areas, making this a popular heating option in Christchurch. Like other heating options, most modern gas fires have a timer facility.

CENTRAL HEATING Growing in popularity in New Zealand, warm-water central heating is the even distribution of heat throughout the home from a central point or heat source. Warm water is distributed via a network of pipes connected to radiators in each room, or looped under the floor for underfloor heating. Releasing a gentle heat, no water is actually consumed, ensuring this is the ultimate in efficiency.

HEAT PUMPS Heat pumps come in a variety of options: high-wall, floor consoles, slimline, quiet ... the list goes on, ensuring there is a design, size and placement to suit your needs. Be smart about your energy use and ensure you have the right size heat pump for your space. If you pick one that is too small, it will have to work hard all the time, and will use more power than necessary. A unit that is the right size should heat your space in 5-15 minutes.

HEAT RECOVERY SYSTEM Home heating isn’t just about keeping the house warm; it’s also about maintaining a healthy home. In the summer months we are able to throw open the windows to air the house, an option not available in cooler weather, meaning condensation is often an unhealthy side effect of winter. The installation of an effective heatrecovery or ventilation system can help

DUCTED AIR CONDITIONING Ducted air conditioning systems work exactly the same way as a high-wall heat

solve this problem, thereby working towards creating a warmer, drier and, above all, healthier living environment. WOOD BURNERS When used properly, wood burners are a great and economical option, especially if you have access to free or cheap firewood. You do, however, need to ensure your fire is clean-air approved, especially in Canterbury. When buying a wood fire, consider efficiency rating, clean burn, emission levels and size. PELLET BURNERS Pellet fires have come a long way in recent years and most are now available as free-standing or inbuilt, offering a wider variety when it comes to selecting the right look for your space. There are many benefits to a pellet burner as they offer all the warmth and luxury of a flame without the hassle of cutting, carrying and storing firewood. Made from sawmill waste, the pellets are carbon-neutral and burn cleanly. One of the biggest limitations is the initial cost, with the price of buying and installing a pellet burner greater than that of a conventional wood burner. The burner also relies on electricity so won’t work during a power cut.
