We have a good track record of finding the right tenants for our high quality properties. Those people are on our books now. Plus we always look after our properties as if they are our own!" "Here is my handy hint of the month. If you are travelling or out of town, or you are 'super busy', don't worry. Quinovic provides a comprehensive report, including photographs, on our website so that you can access the latest information about your property at your convenience. That is one of our 'points of difference' which puts us ahead of the competition." 5301046AB No turn ruling yet A decision on a right-hand turn into Fjord Pl may not happen this year. Residents and visitors to one of Porirua s newest subdivisions cannot make a right turn off Whitford Brown Ave, just past Aotea College, due to a centre barrier. It was erected following the death of Ron Chippindale in 2008. The Fjord entrance was developed soon after and motorists wanting to enter the new subdiv- ision can only do so coming down the hill. Fjord resident Grant Baker has support from fellow homeowners and will make a submission during the upcoming Porirua City Council annual plan process. A report is being prepared by the council s road- ing team, and city councillor Denys Latham says he will be pushing for a right-hand turn. The council s chief executive, Gary Simpson, however, says they may need to take a wider look and a decision may not be made until at least 2014. Gardener London-bound By AMY JACKMAN Growing ambition: Bayley LuuTomes with a replica of his design that won an award at the Ellerslie Flower Show. The flaxes, cabbage trees and grasses of New Zealand bea- ches will be on display at the world s largest flower show, at Hampton Court Palace in London. Bayley LuuTomes, 31, of Tawa, a horticulture student at Wellington Open Polytech- nic, is the only New Zealander to be offered a place at the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show. His garden will be one of 600 on display from July 9 to 14.The show has been held in the grounds of the 500-year- old palace since 1990 and is now the world s largest flower show, featuring designers from all over the world. LuuTomes design is a cir- cular, terraced landscape design for the backyard of a New Zealand bach. It will fea- ture more than 500 plants found near New Zealand bea- ches. The garden will be in the new Inspire section at the London show. LuuTomes said he was still in shock about being the only New Zealander at the show. I ve never been to a palace, let alone London, so to be the only New Zealander going is amazing, he said. It was a dream of mine to go to the Chelsea Flower Show one day, but I never thought I would be going to London to exhibit a garden myself. It s amazing. He got the offer to exhibit at the show after being named Student of the Year at the Ellerslie Flower Show in Christchurch, with his $40,000 rooftop garden. Ellerslie was my first gar- den. I didn t have any credi- bility before then, so it was only after doing well there that I got my place, he said. I told one of the judges, Andrew Fisher Tomlin, that it was something I wanted to do and he wrote me a reference. That, along with a new design for the show, got me the offer. LuuTomes is fundraising on Pledge Me for the $21,000 needed to get to London.
