Earthquake Commission does U-turn over well repair LIFESTYLE BLOCK owner Brent Norton has won a battle with the Earthquake Commission over his liquefacted well. EQC has done a U-turn on Mr Norton’s claim to pay for the damage to the well on his property near Tai Tapu after the Ombudsman’s Office began investigating. The damage was caused in the February 22, 2011, quake. EQC declined Mr Norton’s insurance claim. Mr Norton believes there could be other landowners like him in the same position. The domestic well, the only source of water for this home, became blocked with liquefaction during the quake. Demands on the well were minimal because his new home and property had not yet had established gardens and lawns. But during the summer of 2011/2012 when the gardens and lawns needed watering the well ran dry after about an hour. Mr Norton incorrectly assumed this was because of a limitation to the aquifer. By summer of 2014 the well would run dry if two showers ran simultaneously and it

quality. The well in this case has not suffered any damage”. It said the water quality does not seem to be a direct result but a gradual build-up of silt over a period of time and therefore is not covered by EQC. Mr Norton appealed the decision to the Ombudsman. The Ombudsman informed EQC it was investigating which has now resulted in the U-turn. The Ombudsman was advised by EQC it accepts that the blockage to the bore screen by liquefaction represents earthquake damage and the work required to clean the screen constitutes repair work. Mr Norton said it was a major back-down from EQC after what they had been saying for many years. “They have come up with so much bulls***t all the way through to avoid paying what they should have paid to start with,” he said.

Tuesday June 6 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

EARLIER THIS year it was Mi-Sex and Dragon. In 2018, Jimmy Barnes will be making his way to Lincoln for the second Selwyn Sounds rock festival (see page 7). This year’s event was a great success, apart from a few teething problems which I’m sure will be ironed out. The all-day festival will also feature The Feelers, Mental As Anything, Stellar, The Mockers, The Narcs, The Lady Killers and The Warratahs. That’s a fairly impressive line-up; on a par or even better than this year. As local lad and festival promoter David Parlane says: “We couldn’t do the same as what we did this year, we had to do something a little different and make it bigger and better.” Sounds good to me. – Barry Clarke

TASTY GORGEOUS FOOD Much loved gourmet food made our way

Brent ForBes - In my previous works the landscape has

been used to observe the time of day, the seasons passing, maybe (but not often) a particular place – however these works are not any of those things. Looking at these works as a whole, I see the main preoccupation has been water, and where the land meets it. The landscape, although more modelled and distinct in terms of handling, is not the main motivation – just as important is the inescapable fact of the ocean. Making these works was more about the process than before, sticking pieces on, seeing what opportunities were created, adjusting, rearranging... it was about not having a set finish in mind, just responding to what the works needed. In this way I think of these works as more universal and about painting rather than simply “landscape paintings”.

- A deep connection to the land and sea of New Zealand, is always at the heart of my work. My desire for us, as custodians of this unique, raw beauty, to not only maintain what we already have and often take for granted, but to return what we can to it’s natural state. On The Shores Of Our Land are additionally inspired by childhood memories of looking with fascination at watercolours and lithographs of NZ prior to colonisation, at the Auckland Art Gallery. The design of the sculptural pieces for this exhibition, are evocative of things of the sea, both in nature and our relationship with it: Whale teeth, fish contours, dolphin fins, yacht sails, surf boards.

Search for missing gates „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding THE OWNER of a Tai Tapu furniture shop has described the theft of its set of distinctive gates as a “very brazen act.” Last Monday night Obelisk furniture store situated on the Christchurch Akaroa Rd had its gates covering a 6m-wide opening to the business stolen. Owner Debbie Horton (left) said the gates, imported from India, were made of extremely heavy solid steel and would have needed to be unbolted before they were removed. “Somebody knew what they were doing which is a little bit concerning . . . they couldn’t be lifted up and taken off,” she said. Mrs Horton has contacted both the Scrap Metal Recycling Association of New Zealand, New Zealand Post and the police but have had no luck in finding where the gates are. “There was a lot of scraping heard down the road and a lot of noises at around 10pm Monday night . . . as you can understand neighbours didn’t go out and

look any further,” she said. Sergeant Alex Pickover said police are following up on the case but there was no CCTV footage available to help it determine who stole the gates. Tai Tapu Community Association Committee chairman Gerald Carter said he had

shared the missing gates on the Tai Tapu Community Facebook page but had no feedback. “You would have thought someone would have seen something,” he said. •Anyone with information about the taking of the gates or their current location is asked to

phone Christchurch police on 363 7400 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Have you noticed gates going missing around the Selwyn area? Email your views to georgia. oconnor@starmedia.kiwi

David Ward, chief executive, Selwyn District Council, responds to a Selwyn Times article from May 30 THe article – Rate increase to manage stormwater – contains incorrect and misleading information The story states “Residents can expect a rate increase of $85 per property in areas where the district council manages stormwater.” This is incorrect. The $85 referred to is the total rate per property, not the increase. For some households the rate will increase, but for others it will decrease or stay the same. The planned new standard stormwater rate of $85 per property, to be introduced from July 1 2017, will replace existing stormwater rates which vary by township. For example, in the current year (July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017) in Leeston the rate is $278, in Lincoln it is $85, in Rolleston it is $40. Under the previous system stormwater rates were based on the costs in each township so varied significantly – for example the rate has been high in Leeston as a major stormwater upgrade is underway. Under the new

system the costs of managing stormwater across the district are recovered through the standard $85 rate charged to households in townships where the Council manages stormwater. Many townships such as Leeston will pay less for a stormwater while other areas may pay more. This proposed change was consulted on through the Draft Annual Plan process. Overall, more people indicated they supported the move to a new standard rate in online survey comments and submissions than the alternative to stay with the current charge which varies by township.

Maddie to get treatment in US „„ By Gabrielle Stuart MADDIE COLLINS has spent most of her life battling kidney failure – now the 13-year-old West Melton resident has been dealt another life-threatening blow. She was told last week while at Starship Hospital for kidney treatment that her heart is also failing. If Maddie had a successful kidney transplant, her heart could recover, but without one, she would be at risk of a heart attack, her mother Sarah Manson Collins said. The news had hit Maddie and the whole family hard, she said. “She was in the room when they told us and she said, ‘okay, how many months have I got to live?’ We said, ‘no, it’s not like that, you’re going to be okay,’” she said. Kidney problems can force the heart to pump harder, putting a lot of strain on it. An American study has found children on dialysis for kidney problems were 1000 times more likely to have a fatal heart attack. The family has been fundraising to take Maddie to The John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, United States, next month where more advanced treatment may make it easier to match a donated kidney. In 2012, her father, Adam Collins,

donated one of his kidneys to Maddie, but her body rejected it. “We know we’re fighting uphill to find a match for Maddie, but you’ve got to believe in miracles,” Mrs Manson Collins said. The treatment offered in the United States would make it less likely Maddie’s body would reject a donated kidney. However, it comes at a price – the full treatment is expected to cost about $350,000. Givealittle pages have already raised more than $80,000 for Maddie, and people in the community had also been incredibly generous, Mrs Manson Collins said. Many people, from family members to total strangers, had also volunteered to be tested to see if their kidneys might be a match for Maddie. She had no idea how many,

as the family were not allowed to know unless a match was found. But even though none so far had matched Maddie, Mrs Manson Collins said every person willing to donate an organ had helped someone. “It’s not just about Maddie. We don’t have enough organ donors and that’s what this is about, so if I can make more people talk about organ donations I’ll have succeeded,” she said. She said Maddie had been finding things tough, as her treatment meant she missed a lot at her school and couldn’t do many things with her friends. “People say she looks so well, she looks so healthy, but you don’t see kidney failure until you lift up her shirt and see all those lines in her body,” she said. But she said Maddie’s love for animals, the people around her and her passion for life kept her strong. “Maddie is incredible. When she gets on her pony everything is right for her, even though I know how much energy it takes her to ride. Her inner strength puts some of us to shame sometimes,” she said. •Maddie’s givealittle page is www.givealittle.co.nz/cause/ givethegiftoflifetomaddie

News Barnes to head Lincoln rock event „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding AN AUSTRALIAN rock icon is set to step foot onto the Lincoln Domain for one of the biggest musical festivals in Selwyn next year. The Selwyn Sounds concert is back with Jimmy Barnes to headline the rock concert, along with an iconic line-up of Australasian groups. It will be held on March 3. Barnes will be joined by The Feelers, Mental as Anything, Stellar, The Mockers, The Narcs, The Lady Killers and The Warratahs. Organiser and Lincoln resident David Parlane said the line-up is sensational and he is excited to have secured a class act such as Barnes to headline the show. “We couldn’t do the same as what we did this year, we had to do something a little different and make it bigger and better . . . this year has got a little bit more of a feel for everybody,” he said. It was estimated more than 7500 packed into Lincoln Domain for the inaugural concert in March. Mr Parlane said the organisers had learnt from the last event and will be looking to have more Portaloos and designated areas to distinguish between male and female. He said entry to the concert was a learning curve and there will now be designated lines for people taking chilly bins and express lines

ELLESMERE College students have been pledging their support to stand together against bullying. The school took part in the Mental Health Foundation’s nationwide Pink Shirt Day to stop bullying recently. In the week leading up to the event, the year 12 health class decided to set up their

own photo booth where students gave their support against bullying and promoted the day. The photo booth complemented the “pink promotes positivity” slogan students had come up with for the day. The school’s social prefects played the film A Girl Like Her to help other students understand bullying.

A pirate-themed book week was held to start the school term, with pupils dressing up and celebrating their love of reading together. The week gave pupils of different ages the opportunity to work together in different classrooms throughout the school. Work by year 7 pupil Zack Sewell, who has an interest in building, was also celebrated at a recent

school assembly. He made a structure out of plastic which he has worked on as an individual project dur-

ing the term. The school is also looking forward to the opening of 12 new learning spaces for its kowhai team (year 2 and 3 pupils) in August. Year 8 teacher Deepa Cawood said the buildings are taking shape and the school is excited to have not only new learning spaces, but an additional play room. The new learning spaces are part of the Ministry of Education’s $1.137 billion Christchurch rebuild programme.

News Young dancers Disneyland-bound „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding STEPPING OUT onto a stage in the heart of Disneyland is no more than a fantasy for most young dance hopefuls. But the dream has become a reality for 15 promising dancers at the Selwyn School of Dance. The dancers will travel to Los Angeles in July next year not only to perform on the stage at Disneyland Resort but on Hollywood Boulevard. The pupils were selected to join an array of dancers from all over schools all lover Australasia after sending an audition tape to company World Class Dance Tours. They will spend two weeks in Los Angeles taking dance classes at some of the top dance studios in the city including Millennium Dance Complex. Each student will need $6000 to travel overseas and the school will hold a fundraising concert closer to the time.  The creative mind behind choreographing the team dance for the student’s big moment in Disneyland is the school’s artistic director Emma Body.  Mrs Body said the students are excited by the opportunity and she along with several other teachers at the school will be

looking to put together a 30min dance piece. “I know a lot of kids are keen on doing stuff from film La La Land . . . generally it will be something pretty upbeat,” she said.  Mrs Body, of Rolleston had bright beginnings to the dancing world when she was a child,

and must have told one of the teachers there “mummy was a dancer” and they approached me about taking some pre-school classes,” Mrs Body said. When her pre-school pupils reached school-age Mrs Body decided to set up her own school to give dancers in Selwyn an option. Her own school now has more than 200 dancers with one travelling from as far as the Heathcote Valley to train.  Dreaming up a mega Disneyland dance routine is not the only showpiece Mrs Body has on the go with her ballet pupils set to perform the Coppélia ballet at Middleton Grange School on June 24. The comic ballet show brings back fond memories for Mrs Body who danced as a child in the Coppelia’s Waltz of the Hours for the Royal New Zealand Ballet.  Wanting only the best for her students, Mrs Body is a “sucker for punishment” making about 50 tutus from scratch for the dancers in the show with her mother Jeannie Stewart.

SELWYN TIMES ADVERTISING FEATURE

Falcon’s Landing soars in Rolleston Falcon’s Landing is a new quality residential subdivision that has just been unveiled in the go-ahead town of Rolleston. The project is the work of locally owned and operated Gillman Wheelans, an established developer renowned for its successful subdivisions including popular Levi Park, also in Rolleston, developed in 2013. With around 600 residentially zoned sections ranging from 450sq m-1000sq m and section prices starting at $160,000, the key focus here is variety, point of difference and space. Gillman Wheelans director Hamish Wheelans says there are options for positions, locations and outlooks to suit every new home owner. “Building in Rolleston is such a fantastic option for families looking for a community focused lifestyle. House prices remain high in Christchurch but here at Falcon’s Landing, you can have a quality, affordable new home on a 600-700sq m section. It’s great value and with the upgraded motorways under construction, the commute to various destinations is becoming much faster, and will continue to improve further.”

Situated off Lincoln Rolleston Road, the existing Branthwaite Drive low density area will become the central arc of Falcon’s Landing, allowing a panoramic drive streaming off to family friendly cul-de-sacs and quiet comforting streets. Reserves located throughout Falcon’s Landing will include existing established trees helping to blend the old with the new. A lovely hazelnut orchard will remain in part and an edible garden established to complement the grove. Construction is due to start in September and Hamish envisages

the first of the titles will be through towards the end of 2018. This first release will consist of 120 sections and will feature eight show homes that will be open late next year. “People are always curious about the origin of names for new subdivisions. A Falcon’s formidable hunting ability is largely due to their highlydeveloped eye site. This is perfect for Gillman Wheelans as we have the eye for detail when it comes to subdivision development and so we’ve named our newest Rolleston development Falcon’s Landing.”

Existing mature trees will be included in the overall design.

A reputation for excellence Gillman Wheelans, which is developing Falcon’s Landing, has built up a reputation for excellence over the past 15 years in quality successful residential subdivisions. The company is careful to identify prime land in highly sought-after areas such as the award-winning Preston Downs and Wilfield in West Melton, Levi Park in Rolleston and The Woods in Prebbleton among its lengthy list of Selwyn developments. With its hallmark eye for detail, Gillman Wheelans always seeks to embrace the natural feel of the land, says director Hamish Wheelans. “We enhance the look of the areas we develop and we believe in the New Zealand lifestyle, which

includes rustic space and rich green countryside. Recreational areas are also a focus for us and, like many of our other developments, Falcon’s Landing will have its trademark tennis court, basketball hoop, playground and walking tracks. We’re not trying to bring the city to the country, but instead give people the best of both worlds in their own community. “The experience and knowledge we’ve gained over that time means we really understand what is important to people and how they want to live. Good amenities are crucial – and not just proximity to shops and schools – but today there’s a much greater emphasis on green and recreational spaces,” Hamish says.

Rolleston reaps benefits of planning for the future Rolleston is one of the fastest growing towns in New Zealand, largely due to its forward planning and additions in infrastructure, commercial and community projects. Until 1990 the town had only a few sealed streets and a population of just under 1000. Today it has mushroomed to 15,000. Conservative estimates suggest it will hit 19,000 within 10 years. The current expansion began in the 1990s and was significantly boosted by people

relocating post earthquake. Today its economy is booming and families are flocking to the flourishing town. New secondary school, Rolleston College, opened its doors in February, initially to 223 Year 9 students only, and will add year levels as students move through. Six years ago, Rolleston had one primary school; now the Ministry of Education has added another three primaries, with a fifth, Lemonwood Grove, opened at the start of this year.

Rolleston is home to two South Island inland ports. Carter Group is developing I Port, a $500 million industrial and logistics park on 122 hectares. Stage 1 of the development saw the sale of 27 hectares to Lyttelton Port of Christchurch to develop an inland port. Next door at Izone is Port of Tauranga’s inland port covering 15 hectares. These two expansive industrial subdivisions have positioned Rolleston as a significant regional hub for exporting, importing,

logistics, industrial and agricultural businesses. Meanwhile, large format retailers such as The Warehouse, Warehouse Stationery and Noel Leeming are establishing, providing employment opportunities within the community. On the recreational and cultural arena, the new district library and community facility are designed to host a variety of events and activities, putting emphasis on learning, technology and community.

Foster Park is Rolleston’s largest reserve with 11 sports fields, shared walking and cycling paths and are planning for a large children’s playground and indoor sports complex. This area has become a central hub for weekend sport and families within the community. Nearby is the Selwyn Aquatic Centre, which was completed only a few years ago and is already in line for an expansion to suit the growing population.

Rolleston’s newest neighbourhood Lincoln-Rolleston Rd. First release available now.

Just released, new sections in this fast-growing township – close town town and all your favourite amenities. Find out more now. Call us on 03 741 1340, or email us at enquiries@yoursection.nz anytime

Portrayal earns Darfield HS award „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding THE OFTEN tragic aftermath of drink-driving has been portrayed in a performance at the 2017 Stage Challenge & J Rock. Darfield High School was awarded second place in the RAW division, it also received five other awards. THe competition was held at Horncastle Arena recently. Darfield High School’s performance was titled Could You Live With It? Year 13 student and head of stage challenge Jade Collier said it was about showing what it is like when a driver is responsible for taking other people’s lives and what the driver has to live with. The idea was inspired from discussions in the media about drivers carrying passengers on a restricted licence. “We still can’t get over that we got second place as there was so many amazing performances on the night, we are so proud of everyone’s efforts,” Jade said. Lincoln High School also won six awards for its performance Hidden Poverty to raise awareness of the level of poverty, prevalent in society today. “After exploring other issues,

student leaders kept coming back to the idea poverty is becoming an increasingly big problem in the city,” the school’s dance and drama teacher Robyn Wylie said. Year 11 student leader Jessica McMillan said she was thrilled, the cast gave it everything and received so many awards. Rolleston College, who entered for the first time this year with only year 9 students, won two awards for their performance on the different types of stereotypes

students are often put into at high school. Learning leader of the arts Merrin Diack said her students were outstanding and it was a big experience for the students doing the show for the first time. “It really encapsulated their idea of just being yourself and not being tied down by what anyone says you should be,” she said.

Celebrate Matariki

Are you ready

Selwyn Libraries are celebrating Matariki – the Ma¯ori New Year with free puppet shows for kids. Libraries will also be playing videos of local people sharing Matariki stories on TV screens.

for snow?

Matariki is the Ma¯ori name for the group of stars also known as the Pleiades or the Seven Sisters which rise in late May or June. This year it rises on 25 June. Lincoln and Darfield will host Toro Pikopiko Puppets who will be performing the world’s first Ma¯ori Rock-Art Puppet Production, Te Rerenga – the Flight! This is a free 40-50 minute show, suitable for all ages but created especially for children of primary school age. Te Rerenga – the Flight is an acoustic rock musical, featuring 100 fabulous ‘Flatso’ puppets inspired from ancient cave drawings made on limestone cliffs and caves around the Timaru area. This fun production will take you back in time a thousand years with a story about a group of rock art puppets who meet up with the Bird Woman while she searches for her whanau. The shows are on Tuesday 13 June at Lincoln Event Centre from 12–1pm and on Friday 16 June at Darfield Library from 9.15–10.15am. Bookings are not required to attend this free event. Matariki stories that will be screened at the library include The little Kiwi’s Matariki, Together in Love: A Legend of Matariki, The Seven Kites of Matariki and Daniel’s Matariki Feast.

June marks the official start of winter and this brings the risk of snow. Snow is common in Selwyn during winter and has the potential to cut off power and telephone services and close roads.

On the roads this week Maintenance repairs are planned on Gillanders, Hororata and Milnes Roads – the roads will remain open with traffic controls in place. Footpath reconstruction is planned on Birchs Road in Lincoln. Bridge reconstruction is planned on Jarvis Road. Footpath construction continues on Petticoat Lane in Doyleston, Holley Street and Chervier Street in Leeston, and Hastings Street in Southbridge. Works are planned along Springston Rolleston Road throughout June. The work involves seal widening on the eastern side of the road to create a right turn bay onto Dynes Road and piping the water race along this section of road underground. Traffic delays and reductions to one lane are possible while work occurs. 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 one-way 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 traffic management, follow the on-site signage and drive to the conditions.

Last available lifestyle lots in West Melton on offer Wilfield’s residential lifestyle subdivison in West Melton is in hot demand, with half the sections now sold or under offer. Wilfield is the last subdivision in West Melton with allotments that are currently titled and available. Located on Weedons Ross Road and south of West Coast Road, Wilfield comprises 90 hectares of low-density sections that range in size from 1200sq m right through to four hectares. The average size is tending towards 3000sq m and comes with a price tag of $279,500. A preschool is set to open at Wilfield and the new West Melton Community and Recreation Centre are earmarked for 2018. The subdivision is being developed by the Gillman Wheelans team, which has been building residential subdivisions in the greater Christchurch area for the past 15 years. “We’re attracting a real cross-section of people at Wilfield, which makes for a great community,” director of Gillman Wheelans, Hamish Wheelans says. “Access to main arterial routes will be so convenient when the work is completed next year. This will see Weedons Ross Road link through to the State Highway 1

interchange, close to Rolleston.” Only 230 metres from the West Melton township, Wilfield comprises 180 sections and features reserve areas, a tennis court, basketball hoop, and walking trails. The jewel in the crown is a newly opened playground complete with its own castle, climbing equipment, swings, a slide and flying fox. To get there from Weedons Ross Road, turn into the subdivision onto Kingsdowne Drive, then veer right and take your second left down Silver Peaks Drive. Follow your nose to find the castle. “We’ve worked really hard to ensure that connectivity between public spaces, and walkways through to the shops and the nearby church, including negotiating and building walkways across private properties and pedestrian crossings across West Coast Road,” Hamish says. The Wilfield sales office is open every Wednesday and Sunday, 1pm-3pm. If you are coming from Christchurch on West Coast Rd, there’s a big sign on your left as you approach West Melton. Turn left at Weedons Ross Road and you will see the signage and flags. http://www. yoursection.nz/wilfield-west-melton.html

Your home is your castle. Now the kids can have theirs too.

Our new playground, including a kids castle and flying fox, is fast becoming a much-loved feature of Wilfield. You’ll love Wilfield too with sections from 1,200m2 to 4ha. call us on 03 741 1340 or email us at enquiries@yoursection.nz anytime.

Kim’s

Fashion Quarterly from Kim Taylor —Viva La Moda

Update your style Fashion is constantly evolving and changing. We often see customers who have favourite wardrobe items that when they go to replace, have become difficult to find. While there has never been such a variety on offer in the fashion world, trends do change meaning your good old wardrobe staple has evolved into something a little different. With this in mind, the following are suggestions as to how to move on to remain current in your look. The traditional woman’s shirt with a collar is a perfect example of this. Once upon a time this style was everywhere and while there a few on offer, the style has moved on to collarless tops and blouses including Chinese collars or scooped or v-necks. We have pictured the Airlie shirt ($145.95) which is a beautiful dressy version in black and gold metallic.

ANNOYANCE: The green planthopper, also known as the torpedo bug, is a common pest of the garden.​

The bug is an Australian species, and has green upright wings that resemble a thorn or small leaf, which gives it great camouflage. It lays about 100 eggs in a semi-circular raised clutch that hatch in 10 to 20 days, depending on the temperature.

The nymphs go through five growth stages and have a strange looking tuft of white hair on their bum. Both nymphs and adults jump when disturbed, and the adults can fly a short distance. The adults live for about 60 days.

25

There are several different jacket lengths available in stores but the predominant style is shorter which is flattering because it can add some definition at the waist so flatters most women. This style replaces the traditional mid thigh length blazer which featured strongly in the past. We have showcased the stunning Airlie pink jacket ($189.95) and the LA Coalition faux leather jacket ($199) in navy as another example of this alternative to a traditional blazer. These jackets are available in stone, taupe, brown, navy and black and are hugely versatile as can be dressed up with dresses and skirts or down with pants or jeans. Leggings are another fashion item that has moved on. The super stretchy knit leggings of the past have evolved into slim leg pants. The look is similar but just a little more tailored and much more flattering. We have pictured the Vassalli pull on pants with funky crosses detailing which are ultra popular because they are so warm, comfortable and look great with longer tops and knits. They are also an ideal leg width for wearing with ankle boots ($119). The humble cardigan is another favourite for many. The more traditional shorter length varieties have evolved into more relaxed shaped wraps and longline cardigans. These less structured shapes work well with slim leg pants or pencil skirts. When wearing fuller pants or more A-line skirts, a short length jacket is probably a better alternative. We have pictured the beautiful reversible Augustine wrap available in the pink and grey colourway over a striped straight through dress. These wraps are 100% merino and can be worn grey with pink trim or reversed to be pink with grey trim. This look is perfectly balanced when teamed up with short or long winter boots ($249). All of the styles pictured are available right now at Viva La Moda so come on down and find something to give your wardrobe an update for winter.

Travel Spell-bound in Hobbiton „„ By Mike Yardley MATAMATA’S lush emerald pastures and roly-poly hills are happily home to Hobbiton, the ultimate cinematic shrine for set-jetters in New Zealand. Like a third of all visitors, I have never watched or read an entire story or movie, from either trilogy. But for starryeyed Tolkien junkies, a journey here has acquired the stature of a pilgrimage. To reach the movie set entails a short drive by bus across the Alexander family’s farmland on a private sealed road, which was built by the New Zealand Army to service the convoy of crew production vehicles and equipment. Sir Peter Jackson sweet-talked the then Prime Minister, Helen Clark, to approve the road’s construction. Alighting from the bus, the bright green grass is long and lush as we trundle down the muddy track to the first hobbit house, where ‘the Hobbiton effect” suddenly washes over me. Unlike so many movie locations, Hobbiton casts you under its spell because it’s exactly the same as it appears on screen. It’s all so sweet and tender, with washing hanging

on a line near a chimney poking out of a grassy mound. Baskets are plump with pumpkins, while flowers and herbs have been hung up to dry by a round yellow door. As we walked down a gravelled path, some members of my group frothed with delight, recognising it as the spot where Frodo Baggins greeted Gandalf at the start of The Fellowship of the

Ring. And these tingly movie moments just kept on coming, as we strolled around the 44 hobbit houses that are strung around the hillsides, fizzing with excitement being photographed outside Bag End or sitting on the see-saw beneath The Party Tree, where Bilbo held his eleventy-first birthday. I was fully submerged in the fantasy-meets-reality world of

Middle Earth. It’s little wonder that 450,000 visitors toured the movie set, last year alone. Winding our way around the hills, the panoramic views reach right across the lake to the stone bridge, the watermill and the Green Dragon Inn, which looked like a life-sized thatched cottage from my grandmother’s Lilliput Lane collection. •Turn to page 29

SNUG: Have an ale at the Green Dragon Inn.

Hobbiton casts you under a spell •From page 27 Sir Peter Jackson’s art director, Brian Massey, ensured everything down to the mugs maintained complete faith with how The Green Dragon Inn was depicted onscreen. A triumph of expert craftsmanship, it’s a charmingly snug and toasty timbered environment, and the crackling open fire was an extra thrill to warm the cockles, on a chilly April day. All the brews are exclusively created by Good George Brewing, in Frankton. Maybe it was the ale, but as I re-boarded the bus to depart, I felt like I was stepping out of a movie. It really doesn’t matter whether you’re a film fanatic or not. The movie set sits on 4.8ha of

land and my charming guide, Kate, shared a constant flow of fascinating bite-sized nuggets about Hobbiton. An over-riding theme is the meticulous attention to detail that Jackson demanded. All of the farm’s livestock had to be removed when shooting took place, because they didn’t look English enough. Suffolk sheep, notable for their black faces and legs, were hauled up from the South Island during shooting. Real apple and pear trees were stripped of their and replaced with plastic leaves and plums, even though they only featured for three seconds in the movie. A fake oak tree, created from

silicon, was dressed with 200,000 fake leaves. Jackson didn’t like the colour of the leaves, so they were all re-painted by hand, even though the tree was only in shot for 10 seconds. Kate also revealed that moss and lichen was liberally deployed

to give the movie-set’s fences a weathered, old look. They created fake moss and lichen by blending woodchips, yoghurt and paint together. As they were during filming, the vegetable patches are still filled with super-sized plants so as the hobbits would look smaller. Technically, it is still an “active set,” and a team from Weta visit every six months to give it a touch up. The hanging clothes were deliberately made to hang on the line for up to two years, before being replaced. A full-time gardening team work daily on maintaining the picturesque appearance of the trees, flowers and lawn.

New Tuatara ATV scores high on strength and safety Innovation, simplicity and ingenuity are at the fore with the side by side Tuatara 1100 ultra-terrain vehicle. Unlike many ATVs that are based on fourwheel motorcycle technology, the Tuatara 1100 is more like a Jeep in design and appearance and able to be road registered. “Quad bike accidents occur all too regularly, with many operators killed or injured every year. We wanted to design a safer vehicle that would cope with New Zealand conditions, from dusty dry to extreme cold and wet weather; over any terrain whether rough, pumice or sandy ground,” says Geoff Hill who along with his partner Qingmei Pang, set up Lifestyle Tractors & Machinery Ltd, now trading as Tuatara Machinery Ltd. ‘Project Tuatara’ began three years ago. After initially launching a two seat model powered by a 600cc motorcycle engine, Geoff and Qingmei decided to upgrade to a three seat version powered by a much more powerful 1100cc four cylinder Chery engine. The result is an extremely quiet, reliable and very fuel efficient engine. Since its launch, modifications have been made to improve the Tuatara with flexibility of this kind only possible as it is Geoff and Qingmei’s own brand.

“We’ve listened to our customers and made modifications based on their suggestions, making the Tuatara as ‘bulletproof ’ as possible,” advises Geoff who adds that customer response has been extremely positive, with people being very impressed with what they see. “Hunters love these vehicles because they can carry three people and all of their gear, and these machines will pretty much go wherever they point them,” adds Geoff. “The Tuatara offers selectable two-wheel and four-wheel drive, and individually selectable front and rear differential locking. This allows the Tuatara to be comfortably driven over rough, demanding country, even in shallow snow.” The Tuatara 1100 is certainly unique. Made from steel and built on a ladder chassis, there is virtually no plastic componentry so the vehicle is robust and able to carry more than its quad bike counterparts. Safety has also been paramount in the design. The Tuatara is fitted with a roll-over

protection system (ROPS) with rigidity that protects the driver and passengers, is enhanced with the placement of full, four-point seatbelts for all passengers. As farm vehicles must perform in day-to-day conditions which are extremely demanding on machinery, durability was also an aim in designing the Tuatara 1100. This is where Qingmei’s engineering background came into play with the result, a vehicle that is capable of doing the job and lasting the distance. Another significant advantage of the Tuatara is the lower servicing costs that come about through simplicity of design, ease of access to all components and markedly cheaper spare parts pricing. Servicing can even be done at the local garage, if that is the customer’s preference. Geoff and Qingmei are totally committed to ‘Project Tuatara’, and are currently establishing a dealership network throughout New Zealand.

Gardening The three pretty Ps „„ By Henri Ham WINTER HAS officially arrived. But just because the days are getting shorter and the weather is getting colder it doesn’t mean the colour in your garden has to be the same. There are several flowers that thrive in cool conditions – and all of them pack a punch when it comes to colour. And, coincidentally, all begin with P – polyanthus, primula and pansy. Here’s another P word for you – popular. Polyanthus, primula and pansies are the three most popular flowers we sell at this time of year. Probably one of the main reasons they’re so popular, is that they’re all easy to grow. And it’s fair to say there is a pansy colour or pattern for everyone. Now I’ve convinced you of the benefits of growing one or more of these pretty plants, you need to work out where to grow them. All three grow really well in hanging baskets and pots. This is good if you like to move the colour around your home or garden. If you do decide to pot your plants, be sure to use a good potting mix. This will ensure they

get a good start a good kick-start. And wherever you plant them, just make sure they get a bit of sun. Planting is easy, just dig a small hole, put the seedling in and space each one around 20cm from the next. You can expect these pretty flowers to add colour to your winter in around six to eight weeks. If you want to encourage more flowering, I encourage you to pick off the dead flowers.

VIVID: Polyanthus packs a punch when it comes to colour.

access to intelligro has changed Access to Intelligro has changed. Due to the next stage of the Southern Motorway, entry to Intelligro will now be from Manion Road. Due to the finishing touches of Manion Road, entry is only available from the Curraghs Road end until sealing has completed all the way along to Weedons Ross Road.

June is the time to plant garlic! The temperatures have dropped, and the shortest day is near. The shortest day is a bit of an indication as to when to plant your garlic. Growing garlic is pretty simple, it just needs some well-dug, fertile soil, and a sunny spot to grow in. Once planted, it is pretty low maintenance, but very rewarding.

Please check our website www.igro.co.nz for regular updates as the contractors continue to work on this road. While these changes are out of our hands, we do wish to extend our thanks for your patience as this development continues. Kind Regards, Visit our facebook page for regular The Intelligro Team updates: @igro.co.nz

tips and tricks for growing garlic in garden beds: Success for growing anything starts with the soil. Always replenish vegetable beds with good compost and Intelligro sheep or chicken pellets, these provide the prefect environment for all your veggies to get growing, and maintain the growth for the season.

Big is best, so pick wisely Split the garlic heads into individual cloves, no need to peel off the white paper that surrounds each clove. It naturally protects the bulbs in the soil, and then disintegrates once the plant starts developing. Splitting up the heads of garlic can be done in advance; it doesn’t have to be right at planting time.

Planting Make a hole below the soil (5cm) and about 10cm apart. The bright green shoots will appear in 4-6 weeks. Label the rows so you don’t forget where you have planted it. A layer of mulch around the rows once the shoots appear will help keep the area weed free and retain moisture.

If you are planting in pots, our potting mix is excellent for this, and doesn’t require any extra fertilisers are they are already in the mix. Pop in and have a chat to our team for more advice about garlic, as well as your other gardening queries.

Access from Weedons Ross Road will not be available during this time!

Intelligro opening hours: Monday to Friday, 8am – 5pm, Saturday, 8am – 4pm, Sunday, 9am – 3pm. Please refer to our website for any public holidays opening hours.

Celery – good things take time „„ By Henri Ham LIKE MOST winter vegetables, celery takes time to grow and mature. Maybe it’s cheaper and it’s certainly easier to buy from the supermarket. But as many of our customers know, growing your own vegetables is about more than that. Namely, knowing what’s gone on to your food before you eat it, and the sense of satisfaction and enjoyment from growing it yourself. To grow great celery, the first thing you need to do is prepare your soil. Celery likes soil that’s well- drained and sweet (and in a full sun position), so make sure you add lime before planting. If you’re equipped to measure PH levels, the reading should be between five and six. Celery also grows best in a garden that’s raised and filled with potting mix – so if you can make this combination happen, you’re off to a great start. Once your soil’s ready purchase your seedlings. When you’re ready to plant, dig a hole approximately 3cm deep. Pop in your seedling and use compost to create a mound

around the plant. This blanches the base of the stems and keeps them tender. The good news is you don’t have to keep mounding like you do with some plants – just keep your celery watered and that should do the trick. Plant each seedling 20 to 25cm apart and continue this process in rows across your garden. Celery grows best this way, making it a good companion plant for dwarf beans, carrots, spring onions, parsley and bok choy. In fact, if you have any of these in your garden and they’re ready to harvest, celery is the perfect replacement plant. Your plants will develop slowly at first, but in about 12 to 14 weeks, your celery should be ready to harvest. Here’s a tip – slide your thumb down the inside of the fattest stalks and gently twist to pull them off the plant. Don’t cut the stalks off as the stumps left behind will rot and hinder the health of the whole plant. You may notice the homegrown version doesn’t look quite as perfect as the supermarket variety, but it will definitely taste as good – probably even better thanks to the knowledge that you grew it yourself.

SUNNY: Plant celery 20 to 25cm apart in rows across your garden. Home-grown celery tastes as good as what you can buy from the supermarket.

MX-5 an example of advanced engineering

„„ By Ross Kiddie “SAVE UP your money,’’ was the advice from Masaya Kodama, CX-5 project manager, Mazda Motor Corporation, Japan. I had asked Mr Kodama if a new Mazda RX was likely given the concept drawings of a new sports car have been on show. Mr Kodama said rotary engine development was ongoing, and from those comments I would say a new RX is inevitable. I’ve long considered Mazda’s development of its rotary engine to be one of the company’s finest engineering achievements. Although I’ve never had the good fortune to own a rotary, my son has a RX7 turbo and occasionally I get to experience the feel and performance of that amazing sport coupe. As history has served to prove, Mazda has advanced engineering techniques right through its passenger vehicle line-up, and just recently one of its other sport models, the MX-5, was launched in a new variation – that with a folding convertible roof – made of metal. Of course, the soft-top MX-5, is still available in four variants, and the concept of a folding metal roof isn’t new; targa tops, as they have become commonly known, have been around for many decades. However, the point I’m

• Price – Mazda MX-5 RFS, $54,995 • Dimensions – Length, 3915mm; width, 1735mm; height, 1235mm • Configuration – Fourcylinder, rear-wheel-drive, 1998cc, 118kW, 200Nm, six-speed manual • Performance – 0-100km/h, 7.4sec • Fuel usage – 7l/100km

MAZDA MX-5 RFS: Convertible hardtop.

making is that the mechanism which transforms this popular sports car is another example of Mazda’s engineering prowess. The 13sec electric operation is just sheer genius, it can also be open and closed at speeds of up to 10km/h and, for interest’s sake, boot space remains the same for all models. The concept for which we like MX-5 hasn’t been compromised, it is still the cheeky, two-seater which thrills with its chassis balance and associated handling prowess. Whereas the soft-top is available in both 1.5-litre and 2-litre variants, the hard-top RF (retractable fastback) is a 2-litre car only, but there’s also a choice of specification and gearbox. The GSX sits at $48,495, a Limited variant adds $3000 and $4500 (auto), while the test car was a

special launch edition model with automatic transmission, it tops the range at $54,995. Before you jump to the conclusion that the hard-top needs the 2-litre engine because of the metal structure’s increase in weight, bear in mind that that adds just 47kg into the car and performance is far from compromised. The acceleration times between the two models are much the same – 0-100km/h in 6.6sec and 7.2sec respectively. Even though the 1998cc, twincamshaft unit is built to Mazda’s SkyActive efficiency and emission-friendly parameters, it is still a high performing engine with its 118kW and 200Nm ratings. It works freely through the six-speed automatic thanks to low early gearing and a broad top end gear to promote highway economy.

Mazda claims a seven-litre per 100km (40mpg) combined cycle fuel usage average, which sat well with the 8l/100km (35mpg) figure showing on the test car’s trip computer when I took it back to the dealership. I’ve often been a bit critical of the MX-5 and the sound that is generated within the cockpit, history has it that it has always been a bit noisy. I guess performance car buyers like that and they may be disappointed in the hard-top as it is far quieter and far more to my liking; there is an angry engine sound when it’s working hard, but under normal conditions the hard-top promotes a quiet in-cabin environment and I relate to that. Not only is the engine a delight in terms of flexibility and honesty, the MX-5’s greatest virtue is that of its feel-good factor. The

suspension and chassis engineering is a marvel. Of course, drive is sent to the rear wheels and that promotes a pure handling sensation, add in the fully involving feel from the steering wheel and the compliance within the spring and damper rates and you have a true sports car, one which delivers the fun factor along with the ability to conquer the most challenging of corners. Take into account, too, that the tyres aren’t huge (205/45 x 17in), there isn’t a lot of load put on them, and with a height of just 1235mm there is little gravitational force working against the convertible in a quick corner, it handles flat and controlled. There’s some flexibility built into the traction control system, you can make it a little tail-happy before the electronic devices counteract oversteer, but that doesn’t interrupt the fun. The MX-5 in this form has lost none of its playful character and that is why it has been such a popular car, it has been built with character in mind and it doesn’t disappoint. For someone whose old joints don’t work quite as well as they once did, I didn’t find entry and exit into the test car onerous, in fact I was finding excuses to get in the vehicle and go for a drive.

30 hours FREE ECE Not only do children get a wonderful educational start at Giggles and Scribbles, now it’s even easier on the pocket. All children three years or older can now learn and play at the childcare centre for up to 30 hours per week for free*. “We understand that for some families money can be tight, at Giggles and Scribbles we believe in equality of education giving all children more access to high quality early childhood education” says Giggles and Scribbles director and owner Sonya Cookeson. “The centre has been open for over a year now and the wonderful support that we have had from the local community means that we are now in a position to give a little bit back”. “We know how hard it can be for working families and It’s always been important to me that all children have equal access to a high quality early childhood education.” At Giggles and Scribbles they believe that their job is not just to prepare children intellectually for school but also, and perhaps more importantly, to develop them emotionally and socially. They aim to work alongside families to help develop and instil solid moral values that will prepare children to be kind, thoughtful and decent human beings.

problems. At Giggles and Scribbles they incorporate learning into a fun and interactive programme to keep children’s attention and make learning memorable. They also facilitate a highly acclaimed Transition to School programme for children over 4 years of age. This programme is run in house by primary trained teachers. We need critical thinkers - children who can think outside of the box. At Giggles and Scribbles they believe it’s important to provide a balance of equipment and resources that challenge the thought process of children. Some of the equipment and resources have a specific and intentional outcome. Children gain a sense of achievement and accomplishment from completing the activity, progressing their learning forward. n If your family would like to learn more about Giggles and Scribbles or their FREE 30 hour ECE offer, then contact Giggles and Scribbles on 03 325 3350. *Some terms and conditions apply to the 30 hours free ECE offer, please contact the centre for details.

Giggles and Scribbles philosophy focuses on providing children with the skills and tools to play with and alongside other children; to be able to make friends and retain them, valuing the enrichment of friendships. They believe in the value of teaching children to be kind, empathic and to have the ability to self-regulate their emotions. Teachers focus on grace and courtesy, role modelling, respect and good manners. They weave values such as courage, perseverance, independence and inclusiveness into their curriculum, believing them to be as equally important as providing a varied, stimulating and well prepared learning environment. Great emphasis is placed on grace and courtesy lessons, as well as providing children with the tools to be able to learn important preparation for school skills such as learning the alphabet or solving basic math

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

Wait until you are in With the house design chosen and build underway, it is really tempting to start choosing brand new furniture for your new home, placing items on order before moving in. Holding off until you are in is a really good idea. Often older furniture can look tired in the setting of a brand new home yet choosing new items before you are in and have a true appreciation of the spatial elements of the home, can be a mistake. For starters, you might not have the budget right at the end of the build for splashing out on new lounge and bedroom suites or other pieces for the home. Secondly, there can be surprises as to what will work and what definitely needs to go on TradeMe or taken to the local op shop. The old chest or armchair which has been in the family for 100 years may look great in the new house once reconditioned with new stain or paint then re-upholstered. Tired old chairs, settees or ottomans can come to life when restored, providing a comfy seat in the bedroom or another corner of the house while also bringing a touch of colour to an otherwise neutrally toned dĂŠcor. Bright paint and stencilling can also be used to add

vibrancy to furniture for a child’s room. Furnishing items may be given a totally different purpose, adding character to a hallway or bedroom. A variety of objects can suffice as bedside cabinets created from stools, drums or old suitcases once destined for the dump or Sallies. Cushions and throws will also spice up a bed and take away from the nudity of a room that still needs a little more furniture. Fun wall hangings might be created by covering a purchased canvas with some bright and attractive fabric. You could also create your own artwork or let the children exhibit theirs. Bedheads might be made by covering plywood with Dacron and fabric while the odd feature wall will add a more homely feel. There are many great ways to spice up a home and reduce the costs when funds are tight after a build, and landscaping expenses might be a priority. Holding off will give you time to decide on the furnishings that will work best in the home in terms of look and functionality. There is also the added pleasure associated with acquiring furniture and furnishings over time, rather than having the retail satiation fix all in one hit.

Holding off until you are in is a really good idea.

Looking for a property – what really counts? You are in the market for a new property, scrolling the Internet, examining properties for sale and zeroing in on those with potential. They might be in locations that offer cheaper land, larger houses, or convenience to work or school. You may have visited show homes and open homes becoming confused, overwhelmed or swept away with emotional factors like having everything new, or extra features such as three car garaging. To be happy with your choice, list the features that you need, considering: • Family space – Is there room for the children to play indoors and for television and entertainment units? Should this be open plan or separated? • Kitchen – What needs to be in your kitchen? How serious are you about a butler’s pantry? Is it a whim or something that offers a practical solution to the way you use your kitchen? • Bedroom sizes – What are optimum sizes? Smaller bedrooms may translate to slightly lower building costs while extra space can be useful. When looking at existing homes, consider whether the size of each bedroom is sufficient. • Garaging – A standard double garage once two cars are parked there offers little space for the toys. What toys do you have and could they live with the lawnmower in a garden shed, a cheaper option to three car garaging? If the budget allows and a larger garage with workshop is important, make it a selection priority. • Size of land – Lifestyle properties offer space for children, pets, hobbies,

an expansive garden and perhaps a home-run business but they require work so are not for everyone and a compact section might be more sensible if a tight budget or busy lifestyle. • Bathrooms – Second and third bathrooms are great in homes with teenagers and a wet shower room is ideal for young children. A bath might be fashionable though is often not used and its absence could mean a more spacious bathroom. • Laundry – Would a laundry in the garage do the job? • Storage – How much storage do you need? Weigh up what can truly be stored in the garage once vehicles are in, a preference in winter. Garages vary in size so check the size to ensure your vehicles will fit. Look also at where else the house offers storage capacity such as in hall cupboards, a large hot water cylinder cupboard, wardrobes (check their width and depth), walkin robe, attic storage trusses, as well as the potential for hooks and shelving in the garage for bikes, tools, garden equipment and even kayaks. • Off-street parking – How many vehicles can be parked on the driveway? Will this space be sufficient? • Garden - Is there sufficient space for your children to play or for entertaining? A checklist will allow you to determine what will suit your needs, the point of the exercise, saving you time looking at properties or potential house designs while assisting you to decide whether to buy a new or existing home with both options having advantages and disadvantages.

Selling property without a real estate agent – what you need to know If you’re selling an old appliance, or even a second-hand car, it’s fairly safe to assume you can do it yourself without much hassle. You advertise it; find a buyer, exchange the goods for the money and it’s all sorted. There’s no need for a third party to manage the process. But things get a bit more complicated when it comes to selling property. Get this kind of transaction wrong and you could be paying the price for years to come. The Real Estate Agents Authority (REAA), the independent Crown entity that’s responsible for New Zealand’s licensed real estate agents, wants people to be as informed as possible about buying and selling property. It recommends working with a licensed real estate agent when you’re selling. “Property transactions involve professional experts at every stage – as well as real estate agents, people are likely to engage with valuers, building inspectors, engineers and lawyers,” REAA chief executive Kevin LampenSmith says. “Real estate agents are expected to continually upskill to stay on top of changes to legislation and current requirements, so working with a licensed agent gives you improved security. If you sell your home privately you do not have the same access to redress if things go wrong.

A real estate agent is there to help you navigate the process and get the best result.” If you want to sell privately – without the help of a licensed real estate agent you need to weigh up the pros and cons of doing it yourself. There’s more to selling your home than just putting up a sign and showing prospective buyers around; you need to understand the value of your property, set a price and choose the best way to sell it (such as by auction or tender). You have to choose a method of marketing and answer questions from prospective buyers. You also need to organise the sale and purchase agreement, which is the legal document that transfers the property from one owner to another. This includes negotiating conditions of the sale, such as what chattels will be included, the sale timeline and any other variations. Even if you choose to proceed with a private sale, it’s a good idea to engage a lawyer at an early stage to handle the paperwork. A lawyer will generally need to be involved to carry out the actual settlement. As a seller, you are legally obliged to share all relevant information about a property to prospective buyers, such as whether or not it is subject to weathertightness issues, for example. If you mislead a potential buyer, they can seek to cancel the sale and purchase agreement. They can even take you to court later if you’ve misinformed them

about the state of the property and they suffer subsequent financial loss. Lampen-Smith says people should also be aware of their obligations, particularly regarding commission, if a property had been first listed with an agent. “Make sure you are aware of the cancellation terms of your agreement as these vary between agencies. If the agent has done some work to market your property, but you then sell it privately, you may still have to pay them a commission.” If you decide to sell with the assistance of a real estate agent, make sure they are licensed. You can check out the REAA’s free online public register of licensed real estate agents, and get more information about buying and selling property, at www.reaa.govt.nz.
