No set date for police to be 24/7 in district

Maree Smolenski and her husband Sam have received more than $75,000 to help with son Jonty’s treatment for a rare disorder. They are now organising a fundraiser to give back to the community. •Story, p12 & 13 PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

„„ By Andrew King POLICE OFFICERS will not be based in the district around the clock in the foreseeable future. Police chiefs said yesterday that the Rolleston station does not have a set date for when it will go 24/7. Rolleston was one of four stations across the country earmarked to be staffed 24/7 in 2017/18 as part of the $388 million investment in police announced by Prime Minister Bill English in February. Canterbury rural area commander Inspector Peter Cooper said the station will need to have more staff before it can. So far four new staff have been confirmed for Rolleston in October. A further six officers are due next year, however, those are still unconfirmed Inspector Cooper said. A senior sergeant position will be created in Rolleston, giving the area its “own voice,” he said. “There has been a considerable increase in population so it is time it had its own senior sergeant,” Inspector Cooper said. •Turn to page 7

Tuesday July 11 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

THEY SAY a picture is worth a thousand words. Our page 1 photo today is simply that. Jonty is five and has a very rare recessive genetic disorder called trichothiodystrophy. If he gets sick even from a common cold he could die. It’s that serious. When he was a baby, hospital was his second home. We detail Jonty’s journey and a very grateful family who are having a fundraiser to give back something to the organisations which have helped. And if you’re wondering what the ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ means here it is: It refers to the notion that a complex idea can be conveyed with just a single still image or that an image of a subject conveys its meaning or essence more effectively than a description does. – Barry Clarke

Pressure goes on Brothers in arms West Melton wells

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding DRY WINTER weather is continuing to put pressure on West Melton’s water wells. The Concerned Well-Owners Group West Melton, made up of about 20 residents, met at the township’s community centre last week to address concerns on what can be done to stop wells from drying up in the township. About 50 residents have raised concerns with the group previously with about 10 per cent having a dry well. Climate rather than surrounding irrigation has been identified by Environment Canterbury as having the largest impact on the township’s water supply. In August, it was reported parts of Canterbury including West Melton were in the worst drought since the 1980s with 86 per cent of water bores across the region affected. While West Melton’s groundwater levels are no longer at record lows, ECan estimates they are still sit at a low level. The group’s chairman Peter Thomson said while he accepted the weather had the largest impact, it was still difficult to see so many irrigators in the area.

An affected resident himself, Mr Thomson has been carting water from a 11,000 litre holding tank situated in Yaldhurst for the past five months after his West Melton property well went dry. He is likely to be faced with paying about $30,000 or more depending on how much deeper his well needs to be drilled. “The main thing is not everyone was aware of the problem . . . we wanted to know how it happened, why it happened and what we could do about it,” he said. Another meeting was held with residents, ECan and the district council on June 19. ECan provided information on climate-induced variations in ground levels while the district council provided an overview of the water supply. ECan’s groundwater science manager Carl Hanson said the township has not been getting the rainfall needed. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Are you concerned you well may be at risk of drying up?

In Brief SURVEY UNDER WAY The district council is undertaking a survey to monitor its performance across a number of services including parks, roads, water, libraries and swimming pools. About 400 Selwyn households will be contacted and asked to participate in the survey. SHED FIRE An electrical fault is thought to have caused a shed fire at a private property at Springfield last Saturday at about 1am. Fire services from Sheffield, Springfield and Darfied attended the incident on King St. Springfield chief fire officer Grant Williams said the shed was located close to another house and hedge but it did not spread.

Prop Scott McIlroy (left) brought up his 200th game for Darfield against Southbridge alongside twin brother Blair in division 1 rugby on Saturday. Blair is now just three games away from achieving the same milestone. •Result, round-up, p14 ​

WALKWAY CLOSED The Glentunnel Millennium Walkway has been closed over the winter. The walk is known for its old tunnel and mining machinery. Glentunnel Township Committee chairman Reg Anderson said the track is closed over the winter for cleaning. “It is pretty sloshy up there at the moment . . . there is a creek that runs through it that floods all over the place, it is really quite messy,” he said. The track is expected to reopen in September.

there is zero basis for clamping or fining people.

We said: The district council put up P120 parking, but the soon-to-open Black Door Bar and Eatery in Lincoln has put up a tow away sign. Who is right?

James Donald Graham – Battery powered angle grinder, take a few spare disks – works every time. Ben Sandle: Park an old dunger outside and see if gets clamped, when it does just leave it there see what they do.

You said: Pamela Neil – No one does clamping any more. Cafe can ask the council for a 15min area in front or their shop. I did that with a shop I owned and it worked well. Peter Cooper – It is illegal to wheel clamp a car. They try to use the towing laws but nowhere in that law does it say someone can clamp your car. You can have the wheel clampers arrested for tampering with your motor vehicle and you can legally cut off the clamp. Lynette Evans – I believe there should be better parking in Lincoln, and more long-term parking made available. It is all well and good planning on taking parking away for cycle lanes, but it makes it hard for local businesses to have close access for those who need it, for example disabled parking, outside the restaurant. Don’t pick on the business, think how you would feel if it was your business and people complained that they

could not get parks close by. T Lincoln needs a decent parking precinct for retail shoppers. More and more locals are parking outside businesses and residential addresses because there is not enough parking in Lincoln. Will Hunter – If it’s a public road, it’s public property and subject to the district council, not these upstarts. You want dedicated parking for your customers? Pay $1000 a year in easement fees.

Anneke Rolls – These parking spaces are on the road and have been there for many, many years. Used by whoever needs them. Not creating a lot of goodwill for a new business to be mixed up in this kind of argument. The district council needs to be a bit more decisive I think. Either those parks belong to the bar or they don’t. No room for a grey area.

is district council/public land, therefore the P120 is valid. My opinion is that clamping and tow signage would only be legal if on private land for example offstreet shop client only parking?

Jill Reesby – If the parks are on the road, then surely that

Ryan Stewart – The district council is right. If it says P120,

CREATE THE DREAM

Christopher Ford – Come on no one has a right to do that, I only know I would only pay one office and that’s the local government enforcement.

Paul Fraser – Here is my take on this. Why should we care? I find it funny that the Department of Conservation went and visited the site. Would this be the same DOC that spreads one of the worst poisons known to man with no concern for the welfare of our native flora and fauna. They kill native birds by the hundreds of thousands with total impunity. If I killed one native bird I could be fined up to $100,000. Did you know that before they started using 1080 60 years ago there were an estimated 60,000 kea. Now there are an estimated 2500 to 5000. So I guess we have to kill the birds to save them? Clean green New Zealand what a joke.

It’s almost like nature is naturally keeping populations down to a controllable level. And, yes, groups of birds can die together with this virus. Sara Teasdale – Terrible that they are not investigating this, I bet it’s poison.

Anna Henderson – I feel like this should be properly investigated. They may not be a protected species but it’s not a good sign. Poor wee things, we need to know the cause to ensure it isn’t indicative of a wider problem. Neill Roberts – I think you will find the wider problem is some sort of money earner. Hence the lack of interest from “the powers that be.” Scott Nelson – I laughed at the comment from that farmer. They all died due to winter stress – yeah, right

Sara Hargraves – That’s dreadful. They are an indicator of something not right. Good grief we humans are slow learners. Jan Johnson: Birds get very hungry in winter, not so much free food available, maybe they were starving. We said: Over-60s feature in district road fatalities You said: Miles Dalton: Bring on the self-driving cars.

Jill Reesby – Last season a lot of sparrows and other small birds died throughout Christchurch area and it affected aviary birds which had wild birds hanging around for food. It is a viral disease that rears its head every couple of years or so, when bird populations have grown rapidly.

Creating a great community Southbridge Advisory Committee secretary Lieuwe Doubleday writes about community developments in Southbridge THe Local Government New Zealand discussion paper released July 2016 entitled The 2050 challenge: future proofing our communities begins its executive summary with the sentence – “it is a truism but communities that fail to adapt to change die.” While the sentiment maybe true, it is not true in every case and it fails to recognise that all too often community decline is by “design” underpinned by a philosophy that focuses on economic outcomes in preference to social goods. While it is true that communities that fail to adapt may die it is also true that design choices have a significant impact on the outcome.   In Southbridge we don’t have an Izone to inject new business into the area and draw in new residents.

capacity – for an example, sewerage is constrained. By design, significant local body assets are not located in Southbridge. By design, there is no abundance of residential zoned land for development. Yet, Southbridge as a small rural community is holding its own almost in spite of the “design” constraints. With a population of nearly 900, Southbridge is blessed with an attractive rural township supported by two moderatelysized cornerstone businesses and a rural catchment which provides sufficient critical mass to support the local services sector including a petrol station, café, dairy, pub, and engineering workshops. A new water well is in the process of being commissioned, the township has an awesome swimming pool, a great town hall, primary school, and sports facilities.

OPPORTUNITIES: The Southbridge Hall is one of several facilities helping to make an attractive township. ​

All in all it’s a great place to live but perhaps not all by “design.” We recognise that design is not just about things.   It’s about creating great communities where people have opportunities, to grow families, to work, to play, to live as a community, to see out their days in the area they were brought up in.   Such a future could be “designed.” What about a cycleway linking Southbridge to Leeston, transport links to other centres, easy access to retirement villages, a sports centre and just a few more people to build that critical mass and keep things humming.  Bring it on.

Who’s a good boy then? „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding OSCAR THE schnauzer has been such a well-behaved boy, he has been rewarded with a special discount on his registration fees. Selwyn has its own version of the SuperGold Card – but for its “senior citizen” dogs. Oscar’s owner Ray Abernethy, of Rolleston, was pleasantly surprised when he learnt his 15-year-old dog would get a free registration for the year, only having to pay a $10 administration fee. Dog registrations normally cost $30 with a $10 administration fee. To put the icing on the cake, Oscar even gets a “gold tag member” sticker on his registration in recognition.  The initiative was brought in by the district council three years ago by its senior animal control officer Steve Clarke. It is believed to be the only council in New Zealand that does free registrations for wellbehaved senior dogs. “They deserved to be recognised and this is our way of recognising our old dogs in the district,” Mr Clarke said.   The criteria in receiving the discount requires dogs to be at least 14-years-old, registered in the district for at the last 10 years and cannot have had a infringe-

ment for non-registration or had to pay a penalty fee. “The district council doesn’t get many bouquets . . . I just think it is a great initiative,” Mr Abernethy said.  Mr Clarke said there are 250 in

the district identified as qualifying for free registration for next year. He has a 10-year-old border collie called Daisy himself, who used to be a search and rescue dog and travels around with

Mr Clarke as part of the district council’s DogSmart education safety programme for schools. While Oscar may not be as active as he used to be, you will still find Mr Abernethy out taking his a dog for a walk each night. Back in his heyday, while Oscar may not have caused any trouble for the district council, his love for digging was occasionally a bit of trouble for his owners. “When we bought our first house in Hornby, he dug a hole in the wall trying to get out to the lounge,” Mr Abernethy said. Another night, when Oscar was locked in the garage he dug a hole in the carpet through to the concrete floor.

No set date for police to be 24/7 in district •From page 1 The district’s population has grown from 44,595 in 2012/13 to 56,415 in 2016/17, according to the Selwyn District Council. Currently, a senior sergeant is based in Hornby and oversees the Selwyn District. Police stats for the year to date in the Selwyn District show there have been 10 aggravated robberies, 45 illegal use of a motor vehicle, 164 unlawful entry with intent to burgle, 59 thefts, not including motor vehicles and 45 thefts of motor vehicles. In 2016 there were two aggravated robberies, 91 illegal use of a motor vehicle, 394 unlawful entry with intent to burgle, 126 thefts not including vehicles and three thefts of motor vehicles.

News Bastion Point’s Lincoln connection Saturday 8 – Saturday 22 July 2017

HISTORY: Tania Roxborogh’s novel Bastion Point: 507 days on Takaparawhā has been shortlisted for the Esther Glen award. PHOTO: GILBERT WEALLEANS ​

„„ By Amelia Christensen-Rose LINCOLN HIGH School english teacher and author Tania Roxborogh describes herself as a “justice person.” It was only fitting that she would write a novel about what happened on Takaparawhā in the 1970s, her book is titled Bastion Point: 507 Days on Takaparawhā. It took two years for Mrs Roxborogh to research and finish the novel. “There’s not one book on the protests,” she said. All of the research was done through old newspaper stories, prime minister at the time Rob Muldoon’s biography, and letters. It was difficult. “They all had a bias,” she said. But the hard work paid off. Now the novel has been shortlisted for the 2017 New Zealand Awards for Children and Young Adults in the Junior Fiction category (the Esther Glen Award). “I cried when I found out,” Mrs Roxborogh said. “It’s a huge story.”

CONFRONTATION: Protesters at Bastion Point in 1978.

The book is part of Scholastic’s My New Zealand Story which is a series of vividly imagined accounts of real life events, seen through the eyes of fictitious child diarists. “Being an author one of the roles is to tell life through telling stories,” Mrs Roxborogh said. Mrs Roxborogh graduated from Otago University in 2015 with a focus on Māori studies. One of her lectures was on the occupation of Bastion Point. Memories started resurfac-

ing about her experiences during the time. Mrs Roxborogh remembered a time when she was nine and she was living in Titoki. She woke up one morning to find people sleeping on her couch. They were people who wanted to join the land march. Mrs Roxborogh’s family took them in the car to Whangarei. The novel is from the viewpoint of Erica Tito as her family joins the occupation. Mrs Roxborogh describes Erica as a quiet character.

“It was very hard to find her voice.” It wasn’t until the day Mrs Roxborogh visited Takaparawhā that she really found Erica. After walking around the site, a sad experience for the author, Mrs Roxborogh got back into her car and Erica came to her saying: “Now you have your story.” On January 5, 1977, Ngāti Whātua protesters, under the banner of the Ōrākei Māori Action Committee, began occupation of their former lands at Takaparawhā (Bastion Point) in Okahu Bay, Auckland. Led by Joe Hawke, the occupation protested against the Crown’s decision to build on and sell land that had been confiscated. On May 25, 1978, police and army personnel removed 222 protesters from Takaparawhā ending the 507-day occupation. The winner of the 2017 New Zealand Awards for Children and Young Adults in the Junior Fiction category will be announced on August 14.

Pre-schoolers bake sale gains $407 for guide dogs BATCHES OF biscuits baked especially by Rolleston pre-schoolers have gone into supporting the next generation of guide dog puppies. Selwyn Kids Kindergarten, along with children from the OSCAR and home-based programmes, spent a week baking more than 400 biscuits as part of the Blind Foundation Guide Dogs’ Red Puppy Bikkie Day.

The children had been busy collecting orders from the community before raising $407 from selling their biscuits. The “bikkie day” finished with a visit from a guide dog to help the children understand what all their hard work was for. Head teacher Victoria Tomes said the children enjoyed giving back to the community while learning the value of an

Little battler’s Family organises thank you for helping little Jonty „„ By Gabrielle Stuart WEEDONS School pupil Jonty was just 10-weeksold when his parents had to watch him being prepared for surgery for the first time. That was five years ago, and Sam and Maree Smolenski have since become very familiar with the hospital. For the first 96 days of his life, Jonty was kept in neonatal intensive care. He had problems seeing, hearing and eating, and seemed to be hit far harder by colds and flus than other children. Yet the doctors could not understand what was causing Jonty’s problems – and it was three years

before they had an answer, Mrs Smolenski said. That came almost by chance, she said. Jonty has trichothiodystrophy – a recessive genetic disorder so rare he is the only person in New Zealand currently diagnosed with it. But a geneticist at Christchurch Hospital had seen cases before, and recognised the symptoms, including Jonty’s distinctive brittle hair, she said. “He has never ever had a hair cut. There is a guy on Home Alone who gets his hair singed, and he’s left with just knobbles around his head. When Jonty was a wee baby in neonatal care he looked like that.

His first lot of hair just rubbed right off and knobbled up around his head,” she said. Although they finally knew the cause of their son’s problems, it came with bad news – it was untreatable, and many children with the condition died young, she said. “It was quite a shock. We don’t know how long we’ll have with Jonty. Every winter there’s a risk he might get an illness he doesn’t recover from,” she said. Spending so much time in hospital away from their two other children, Lachie, 7, and Ruby, 3, made it harder, she said.

parents give back But that was when the community rallied. Mr Smolenski is a harness racing trainer and driver, and comes from a racing family – his grandfather was driving and training legend Jack Smolenski. The racing community rallied last year to raise more than $75,000 for the family, with even world driving champion Dexter Dunn wearing special racing colours in Jonty’s honour as a fundraiser. That meant the whole family could go to international conferences in the United States last year and again this year to meet with specialists and with other people who have the condition, Mrs Smolenski said. This year, she said the family were approached by Addington Raceway, asking if the family needed more help. But instead, they wanted to do something to give back, she said. The family have planned a fundraising race night and dinner on July 21, raising money for some of the local organisations that have helped them. She said many were locally run and struggled with funding, but

made life a lot easier for families like hers. “It’s not an easy road, but it’s made easier by the support of everyone around us, our personal friends and family and

also the wider community and organisations around us. You go back to that saying, it takes a village to raise a child, and that’s especially true when it’s a special child.”

SUPPORT: The harness racing community rallied to raise money for Jonty and his family, including world driving champion Dexter Dunn who wore special racing colours as a fundraiser.

She said more than $5000 worth of spot prizes had already been donated to be given away on the night, including accommodation at Terrace Downs Resort and Hanmer Springs.

Individual tickets to the race night, which include dinner and a drink, cost $75, while business packages, which include race naming rights and a table for 10, cost $1400. Money raised would be donated to The Maia Foundation, CCS Disability Action Canterbury, Christchurch Riding For The Disabled, SmileDial, Van Asch Deaf Education Centre and Blind and Low Vision Education Network NZ. •More information and tickets to the fundraiser can be found at www.addington. co.nz or from the family’s Facebook page, Our Jonty’s Journey.

SPORTS

Close win secures trophy for Waihora standings. However, with a bye in the final round they could slip as low as third going into the play-offs. Lincoln’s play-off hopes are over. The loss leaves them five points behind fourth-placed Prebbleton who defeated them a fortnight ago. In other games Southbridge gained advantage in the race for a home semi-final by defeating Darfield 21-10. The game didn’t produce a fairy tale story for Darfield prop Scott McIlroy, who bought up his 200th game milestone alongside twin brother Blair, who played his 197th game for the division one side. Division one results: Southbridge 21, Darfield 10; Waihora 18, Lincoln 16; BDI 43, Rolleston 24; West Melton 29, Hornby 5, Prebbleton (bye). Division one standings: Waihora 33pts, 1; Southbridge 30, 2; Darfield 29, 3; Prebbleton 22, 4; Lincoln 17, 5; BDI 14, 6; West Melton 5, 7; Rolleston 5, 8; Hornby 2, 9. •More sport, p15, 18 & 19 •PHOTOS: KAREN CASEY

„„ By Gordon Findlater WAIHORA CLAIMED the Greg Sparks Memorial Trophy for the first time in nine years after a tough 18-16 win over rivals Lincoln at Tai Tapu Domain. Waihora coach Joff Mooar described the last 20min of the game as a real “nail-biter,” with the lead changing a number of times. Trailing 15-16 with five minutes to play Waihora were awarded a penalty, setting up first-five Harry Kirk to slot the game-winning kick. “It never seems to matter where you are on the table in these games between Waihora and Lincoln, they always go down to the wire,” said Mooar. Earlier in the game, Canterbury rep Mark Maitland was at his usual best. The fullback scoring a first half try for Waihora to give them the advantage at the time.

Selwyn is looking for 10 enthusiastic participants to join the camp. “Last year’s camp was great, I got to know everyone there, they became like a second family,” says Abi Smith of Lincoln. “I enjoyed taking part in the overnight camp and learnt about a lot of different things such as first aid and all the different emergency services and what they do.”

The new Community Centre, located at 1456 Tramway Road, is a multi-purpose facility which will be used by sporting and community groups, businesses, and for events.

Say YES to emergency services Young people aged 16–19 can apply to join a Youth in Emergency Services (YES) camp happening from Monday 2–Friday 6 October at Glentui Meadows near Oxford. The camp is a combined initiative by the Waimakariri, Hurunui and Selwyn District Councils. Emergency services including Fire and Emergency New Zealand (FENZ), Red Cross, NZ Police, Coastguard, St John and New Zealand Land Search and Rescue will attend the camp. Camp participants will have the chance to find out more about their work, learn new skills through hands on activities, and meet new friends. Following the camp, participants will spend three months volunteering for a few hours per week with the emergency service of their choice. Applications for the camp close on 20 August – see www.hurunuiyouth.co.nz/yes-camp-2017 for more information. Selwyn is looking for 10 enthusiastic participants to join the camp. “Last year’s camp was great, I got to know everyone there, they became like a second family,” says Abi Smith of Lincoln. “I enjoyed taking part in the overnight camp and learnt about a lot of different things such as first aid and all the different emergency services and what they do.”

Brothers off to futsal nationals „„ By Amelia Christensen-Rose TWO YOUNG brothers will be travelling to Palmerston North for the youth national futsal championship at the end of the school holidays. Calum and Liam Murdoch, of West Melton, have been selected to play for the Canterbury under-14 and under-12 Canterbury futsal teams respectively. Something they’re both really excited about. “I was pretty happy,” 12-year-old Liam said about getting in the team. This will be Calum’s third time

representing Canterbury at national level futsal. In previous tournaments the team has come second and third. But this year he’ll get to watch his little brother play. “It’ll be cool to watch [Liam] play,” Calum said. Futsal is the only FIFA and New Zealand Football approved version of fivea-side football and the world’s fastest growing indoor sport. It is a small-sided game played with a smaller, low bounce ball on a basketball sized court. World superstars such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, Pele and, Calum’s favourite player, Lionel Messi have all acknowledged

the role futsal played in their football development. Calum agrees saying the touch and speed of futsal has helped with his outdoor football. Both Calum, 14, and Liam, 12, have also been playing representative level football for Selwyn Football Club, Calum for the last five years and Liam for the last three. Parents Jo and Dave Murdoch will be joining the boys in Palmerston North. “It’s really great going up and getting to watch them both play at national level,” Mrs Murdoch said. While Mrs Murdoch is going up to watch, Mr Murdoch is the coach of the Canterbury under-14 team. •The championships will be held in Palmerston North at the Central Energy Trust Arena from July 14 to 16. GOAL: Brothers Calum and Liam Murdoch will watch each other play at the youth national futsal championships in Palmerston North.

CONTEST: Selwyn goalkeeper Richard Amyes battles a Waimak player for the ball during Saturday’s 2-all draw. ​

Rocket goal seals draw „„ By Gordon Findlater A LATE goal saw the Selwyn Stallions settle for a draw against Waimak United at Kendall Park on Saturday. Holding a 2-1 lead with five minutes to play, Selwyn could only watch in awe as Waimak’s Luke Fraser drilled a rocket from 45m out, catching goalkeeper Richard Amyes off-guard. “He absolutely pinged it. We had a couple of late chances after that but nothing prevailed,” said Selwyn coach Lee

Padmore. Selwyn held the lead on two occasions. Striker Joe Arnott scored the lone goal in the first half to give his side the advantage at the break. Waimak levelled the score early in second through a rebound following a saved penalty. With the scored level Padmore made changes. Striker Dan Ede, who had started from the bench, came on and made an immediate impact, finishing a Selwyn counter attack to restore their goal advantage with 20min

remaining. Although the match ended in a draw, Selwyn were able to increase their lead at the top of the Canterbury Champions League to 10 points. Second placed Christchurch United were defeated 1-0 by third placed Halswell United. With just six rounds remaining in the competition Selwyn’s push for promotion to the Mainland Premier League is well and truly in their own hands. On Saturday, they return home to play winless Burwood AFC at Foster Park.

Gardening

More than one way to grow strawberries EDIBLE GARDENS have never been more popular and one of the easiest of fruits to cultivate is the strawberry. Because of their compact habit, strawberries can be grown in hanging baskets, containers or the aptlynamed strawberry pots, as well as the usual raised-up garden beds. They can begin cropping in a matter of weeks and will go on producing for much of the year, especially in warmer areas. •Strawberries in the garden – Choose a sunny position that hasn’t grown strawberries

for a number of years and dig in some organic compost. Plant strawberry runners or seedlings into raised-up mounds, and apply a layer of mulch. It important it is to mulch the plants, both to retain moisture and to keep the fruit cleanly above the soil. Pea straw or lucerne hay make a good a mulch. Remove runners, unless you want to use them to propagate some new plants (which should be done every three years or so). •Strawberries in pots – Start by choosing a suitable container. Fill with a top quality potting

mix and plant the strawberries. Water in well. Feed occasionally with plant food and watch out for snails and slugs. •Strawberries in hanging baskets – This is a fun way to grow strawberries, but the main challenge with growing any plant in a hanging basket is that it’s much more vulnerable to drying out. Line moss baskets with plastic sheet and poke holes for drainage. Fill with a hanging basket mix which contains added soil wetters and water-storing crystals. Ripe berries look particularly decorative dangling from a basket (right).

Try to select a growing area that is sunny for most of the day, is sheltered, and is close to a source of water. Soil is not absolutely necessary.

gardening without guesswork Question:

I know people are busy planting roses now, but am I meant to be pruning my existing ones now as well?

Answer: You sure are! Now is a great time to prune - and plant – roses (all but spring only blooming roses such as old fashioned). The plant will respond well to a good prune as it allows new growth, lets in more sun and air, and ultimately creates a healthier plant that will produce more blooms. You don’t have to be an expert to be able to do this job, just remember these few things and you can’t go too wrong:  Prune on a clear fine day. Rain can promote the spread of diseases into new cuts. 

Make sure your secateurs or loppers are sharp.You will want a nice clean cut. Where possible, clean these between plants. This will help to stop any disease spreading from plant to plant.

Remove up to a third of the plant, starting with the outer over-hanging branches and working your way in, removing any dead or diseases branches along the way. Trim to the shape you want, the plant is pretty forgiving and will bounce back from a good cut. Bush roses you can reduce by 50%. Note: you may want to wear some gardening gloves for this part!

After you’ve removed all the clippings, add a layer of mulch to the area. Use some Organic Compost to boost up the soil, or if you prefer, add a layer of bark to the top.

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

Weatherproofing tips for your house design Insulation and double glazed windows are compulsory in new homes making them infinitely superior to their older counterparts for warmth yet more can be done to weatherproof a new home. Underfloor insulation Foam insulated expanded polystyrene panels under the concrete slab act as an insulating barrier, stopping cold coming through from under the house.

Snow straps or guttering protection Wherever snow is a likely part of winter, installation of snow straps is a good idea. These prevent damage to guttering from the weight of snow as it slides off the roof.

[Edition datE]

Are two real estate agencies better than one when it comes to selling your house? It has become less common to see properties festooned with a variety of ‘for sale’ signs, but whether you choose to work with one agency or several is all a matter of personal choice. Either way, there are a few important things to bear in mind. Both options require the signing of a legal contract between you and the agency involved. These contracts, known as agency or ‘listing’ agreements, are legally binding so it’s a good idea to get advice from your lawyer before you sign. As the name suggests, a general agency agreement gives more than one agency the right to market your property. You will be asked to sign a general agency agreement with each agency. Each one will work with you to arrange open homes, and they will all market the property differently. “If you opt for a sole or ‘exclusive’ agency agreement, you are giving one agent or agency the exclusive right to market and sell your property,” explains Kevin Lampen-Smith, chief executive of the Real Estate Agents Authority (REAA). “If you sign a sole agency agreement you should not sign another agency agreement with any other agent until you have cancelled the first agreement. If you don’t, you may have to pay all agents a commission, regardless of which one arranged the sale.”

Make sure you check what happens when the sole agency agreement is cancelled. Some sole agency agreements become general agency agreements when cancelled – this means that you will also have to cancel the general agency agreement if you no longer want to work with the agency. If you change your mind after signing a sole agency agreement you can cancel it by 5pm on the first working day after you have been given a copy. This must be done

in writing (such as letter, email or fax). “Whether you choose one agency or take the general agency approach, the Real Estate Agents Authority recommends using agencies that choose to use specific clauses that we have designed to reduce the risk to you of paying two commissions,” Lampen-Smith says. “These clauses help protect you by making it clear when the agreement ends and when you need to pay a commission.” If you don’t use these agencies, your

sole agency agreement for a residential property may be for a term longer than 90 days. You should note though that you or the agent can cancel the agreement at any time after those 90 days. “However, if an agent carries out any work before the agreement is cancelled and that work results in the sale of the property after the agreement is cancelled, the agency agreement will be legally binding and you may have to pay the agent commission,” Lampen-Smith says. When a general or sole agency agreement is cancelled your agent must give you a list of people they have introduced to the property. If you subsequently sell to one of these people through a new agent, the first agent may still be entitled to a commission. In theory, multiple representation means the property will be seen by a larger number of potential buyers, so it has a greater chance of selling at a higher price. However, the risk in this arrangement is that because no one agent is solely responsible for marketing the property, they may be less committed to selling it. By contrast, a sole agency listing means the agent is obligated to do their best to sell the property. To learn more about the standard clauses, and a list of agencies that use them, visit www.reaa.govt.nz.
