Sheepish charms ­just say cheese<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> couplemake the most of high­producing flock<br />

By Toni Williams<br />

Aboutique sheep milking operation<br />

on the edge of<strong>Ashburton</strong> is making<br />

cheese while the sun shines.<br />

But decisions on its futurewill need<br />

to be made soon.<br />

Hipi Cheese, owned and operated<br />

by Jacy andAllan Ramsay, of <strong>Ashburton</strong>,<br />

started more than four years ago<br />

as they worked through their sheep<br />

milking processes.<br />

Their first milkingwas in November<br />

2017.<br />

The couple, who both work other<br />

jobs, have amicro­farm block ofjust<br />

under two hectares which stocks 24<br />

mostly East Friesian milking ewes but<br />

in the past few seasons has included<br />

Dairymead genetics with ‘‘a dash of<br />

Awassi’’.<br />

The milk is naturally A2.<br />

It’sanideal stocking numberfor the<br />

size ofthe land, and toensure udder<br />

health remains at optimum levels with<br />

no somatic cell count issues.<br />

Someofthe white ewesare closer to<br />

pets as many of the ewes accept<br />

regular hand feeding, especially if it’s<br />

maize, like lollies to sheep.<br />

They are easily identified through<br />

their markings, orpersonalities, such<br />

as curiousfour year old Mickey, or the<br />

fearless Cassianna, or the cheeky<br />

Black Witch.<br />

‘‘They are not really pets because<br />

they work hard producing good milk<br />

for us,’’ Jacy says.<br />

The couple, along with help from<br />

son Hamish,10, arenearing theend of<br />

their lambing season; it started on<br />

XR150 FARM BIKE<br />

150cc4stroke<br />

Electric start<br />

<strong>September</strong> 8,and traditionally has a<br />

narrow 17 to 20­day window.<br />

Eight of the ewes were expecting<br />

triplets, and the rest twins, but there<br />

were asurprise set of quadruplets.<br />

They have shorn most ofthe mob,<br />

with just two younger ewes who have<br />

kept their wool.<br />

Shearing sheep in winter is like<br />

turning on the eating switch, which<br />

helps to develop bigger lambs, Allan<br />

says.<br />

Onceborn the lambs stay withtheir<br />

mothers to get a good start and,<br />

Jacy and alamb and, right, Jacy at the milking unit and aewe and lambs.<br />

depending on their future, may be<br />

kept, sold as pets, or sold to other<br />

breeders.<br />

‘‘After aweek orsowetake them<br />

off mum for afew hours before we<br />

milkthen they go backtogether forthe<br />

rest ofthe day and night,’’ Jacy says.<br />

‘‘While they are off their mums I<br />

bottle feed any that want afeed and<br />

introduce meal.<br />

‘‘It isagentle weaning process that<br />

results in our lambs being pretty<br />

friendly.’’<br />

Allan says sheep can be lambing as<br />

Introducing our new team members<br />

with excellent product knowledge and<br />

willing to go that extra mile for you!<br />

aone year old but they need to be a<br />

live­weight ofaround 50kgs.<br />

Most of the adult ewes weigh<br />

around 70 to 75kgs.<br />

Jacy and Allan have spent the past<br />

few years getting established withtheir<br />

sheep stock and processes.<br />

They run thesheep, milkthem,then<br />

process the milk for cheese themselves.<br />

It’s a path that has come from<br />

knowing people in the industry, and<br />

making the most ofthe opportunity.<br />

Urgent report proposed<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> council is<br />

preparing an urgent<br />

submission to the Government’s<br />

Essential<br />

Freshwater proposals<br />

and is worried by the<br />

tight deadline for submissions<br />

­ October 17<br />

(now extended to October<br />

31).<br />

Chief executive<br />

officer Hamish Riach<br />

said responding within<br />

the timeframe was<br />

going to be difficult,<br />

and even extending the<br />

deadline to the end of<br />

October would be of<br />

little value.<br />

Local body elections<br />

are on October 12, further<br />

complicating the<br />

situation.<br />

Mayor Donna Favel,<br />

who was at a Ministry<br />

for the Environment<br />

meeting in <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

attended by 350 farmers<br />

­many from other areas<br />

­ said the proposals<br />

announced by Environment<br />

Minister David<br />

Parker and Agriculture<br />

Minister Damien<br />

O’Connor concerned<br />

many.<br />

The Canterbury<br />

Mayoral Forum was<br />

also concerned at the<br />

tight deadline and<br />

Local Government New<br />

Zealand was ‘‘rallying<br />

the troops’’.<br />

She had contacted<br />

Members of Parliament<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> couple milk sheep to make cheese<br />

From Page 1<br />

‘‘There is a real art to<br />

keeping sheep calm and<br />

trained for milking. It’s<br />

not really something that<br />

someone who struggles<br />

with traditional cow dairy<br />

farming would enjoy,’’<br />

Jacy says.<br />

‘‘The cost of feed is not<br />

cheap, we feed about a<br />

cup of maize per sheep<br />

per day which makes<br />

them easier to handle.’’<br />

But she admits working<br />

with the sheep is fun,<br />

even if ‘‘perfecting our<br />

cheese is becoming an<br />

obsession’’.<br />

The milking plant,<br />

which takes six at atime,<br />

has the same basic<br />

features as a<strong>19</strong>60s cow<br />

Hamish Riach Donna Favel Dr Tim Mackle<br />

on the proposals.<br />

The regional council,<br />

Environment Canterbury,<br />

was also preparing<br />

a report which the<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> council was<br />

likely to back.<br />

Mrs Favel said the<br />

only report she could<br />

find onhow the Essential<br />

Freshwater reform<br />

might impact the district<br />

was a report prepared<br />

for the Selwyn Te<br />

Waihora zone on the<br />

implications of meeting<br />

the National Policy<br />

Statement for Freshwater<br />

Management.<br />

It said that to meet<br />

those requirements,<br />

operating surplus<br />

returns (for that area)<br />

would be cut 80 per<br />

cent, from $348m to<br />

$45m ayear.<br />

shed with some 20<strong>19</strong><br />

features, such as a vacuum<br />

pump and modern<br />

pulsators, Allan jokes.<br />

Milking takes around<br />

half an hour, averaging<br />

around 30litres of milk,<br />

followed by intense<br />

hygiene cleaning time.<br />

Then the milk is<br />

pasteurised ready for<br />

cheese­making.<br />

‘‘We think this is the<br />

best way to capture the<br />

freshness from the pasture<br />

the sheep are eating.<br />

‘‘When our sheep have<br />

a change in pasture it’s<br />

reflected in the cheese,<br />

the changes can be from<br />

different herbs in the<br />

pasture or season and<br />

growth stage,’’ she said.<br />

‘‘We process every day<br />

in what we think is the<br />

smallest cheese processing<br />

room in NZ.’’<br />

It then goes into the<br />

‘‘cheese cave’’ for maturation<br />

for four to 24<br />

months getting turned<br />

regularly.<br />

The hard cheese is<br />

then sold at Farmers’<br />

Markets in <strong>Ashburton</strong>,<br />

Geraldine and Oxford or<br />

through Facebook.<br />

‘‘Our cheese production<br />

islimited tohard<br />

cheese as it is accepted<br />

this is the safest cheese to<br />

produce for sale,’’ Jacy<br />

says.<br />

‘‘Getting everything up<br />

to risk management programme<br />

standard for<br />

The land use change<br />

analysis projected a<br />

substantial change in<br />

land use, with virtually<br />

no intensive land uses<br />

and the catchment<br />

dominated by dryland<br />

beef and sheep grazing<br />

and by forestry and<br />

other extensive land<br />

uses.<br />

Mrs Favel said she<br />

supported <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

council producing its<br />

own submission.<br />

At the council’s final<br />

meeting this term of its<br />

Finance and Business<br />

Support Committee, Cr<br />

Stuart Wilson said it<br />

was idiotic and the Government<br />

was trying to<br />

‘‘ram it through’’.<br />

Mr Riach said the<br />

council did not have the<br />

time orability to question<br />

the science in the<br />

proposals and would<br />

focus on the potential<br />

economic impacts of<br />

the proposal and<br />

‘‘express our concern’’.<br />

Committee chairman<br />

Russell Ellis said the<br />

submission had ‘‘high<br />

level importance’’.<br />

Mr Riach said the<br />

council understood the<br />

importance and<br />

urgency.<br />

Meanwhile, Rangitata<br />

MP Andrew Falloon<br />

said the reform<br />

Ministry for Primary<br />

Industries is a big challenge<br />

and a big investment.<br />

The process is<br />

really robust and when<br />

you go through the process<br />

you start to realise<br />

that it is so important that<br />

we produce safe food.’’<br />

It would cost too much<br />

to consider expanding<br />

their operation to all<br />

cheese types or raw milk.<br />

They have only started<br />

selling this year at the<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> Farmers Market,<br />

but can sell five times<br />

more in Geraldine, due<br />

to the tourist markets.<br />

‘‘Having a chat with<br />

our customers is apart we<br />

really enjoy. They come<br />

from all walks of life and<br />

could fundamentally<br />

change farming and our<br />

economy, but incredibly,<br />

the Government<br />

was refusing to release<br />

the full economic<br />

modelling of the<br />

impacts ofthe reforms<br />

until after the consultation<br />

process.<br />

The primary sector<br />

accounted for more<br />

than half of exports and<br />

employed thousands of<br />

people in Mid Canterbury.<br />

‘‘Auckland has the<br />

most polluted waterways<br />

in New Zealand,<br />

but is only mentioned<br />

three times in the<br />

103­page report; farmers<br />

are mentioned<br />

more than 250 times.<br />

‘‘In recentyears we’ve<br />

seen dairy farmers<br />

achieve 98 per cent of<br />

waterways fenced from<br />

stock, and more than $1b<br />

environmental investment<br />

in things like<br />

riparian planting.’’<br />

Meanwhile, DairyNZ<br />

chief executive Dr Tim<br />

Mackle said farmers<br />

needed time to consider<br />

the Government’s proposal<br />

and to carefully<br />

weigh up the impact it<br />

may have on their farms,<br />

families and communities.<br />

“Spring isabusy time<br />

for farmers with calving,<br />

lambing and mating.<br />

They have alot on their<br />

plate at the moment and<br />

this isadding toit.<br />

“We are seeing public<br />

meetings where the Ministry<br />

for the Environment<br />

has set up 200 chairs and<br />

had more than double<br />

that number show up.’’<br />

can see that our producing<br />

animals have a<br />

good life style,’’ Jacy says.<br />

European travellers<br />

were particularly fond of<br />

the sheep product but<br />

Kiwi’s have been a bit<br />

reserved to try it, but<br />

those who have were<br />

pleasantly surprised.<br />

The Ramsays have<br />

perfected their cheese<br />

product, and are now<br />

hopeful Mid Cantabrians<br />

will jump atthe chance<br />

to lay claim to having<br />

their own ‘‘artisan style<br />

cheese maker’’ in the<br />

district.<br />

‘‘We need to make<br />

work of this, make it<br />

work at this level for our<br />

animals,’’ Allan says.<br />

Candidates put their case<br />

Sixteen local body election<br />

candidates put their case<br />

for the community’s vote at<br />

a meeting organised by<br />

Greypower <strong>Ashburton</strong>.<br />

Around 70 seniors<br />

turned out for the meeting.<br />

Speakers included mayoral<br />

candidates Donna Favel,<br />

Neil Brown and Leen<br />

Braam. The fourth candidate,<br />

retired <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

businessman Tony Todd,<br />

was overseas.<br />

All nine <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

Ward candidates attended,<br />

two of the four Eastern<br />

Ward candidates and two<br />

of the three Western Ward<br />

candidates, as did Environmental<br />

Canterbury (ECan)<br />

candidate Sarah Walters.<br />

Each candidate was<br />

introduced by Greypower<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> vice­president<br />

Colin Cameron in alphabetical<br />

order and given<br />

three minutes to talk about<br />

why they should be voted<br />

in.<br />

Current <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

Ward councillor Thelma<br />

Bell said she was passionate<br />

about advocating for <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

and was a‘‘mother,<br />

wife, community leader’’<br />

and trained school teacher.<br />

She believed in the value<br />

of volunteering and, if elected,<br />

would build on her<br />

experience from the current<br />

term.<br />

Leen Braam, who is<br />

standing for mayor and in<br />

the <strong>Ashburton</strong> Ward, said<br />

Colin Cameron introduces candidates<br />

he believed the council had<br />

made progress in areas such<br />

as planning for the rejuvenation<br />

of the CBD, the civic<br />

project and library and with<br />

the Chinese village heritage<br />

project.<br />

He said he had the skills<br />

and vision to serve the<br />

community and would<br />

listen, communicate and<br />

think strategically in<br />

decision making.<br />

Fellow mayoral candidate<br />

Neil Brown said he<br />

had 15 years experience on<br />

council and was an ‘‘<strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

man through and<br />

through’’.<br />

He wanted to make the<br />

district a good place for<br />

future generations and to<br />

secure its economic future.<br />

Rates needed to be kept<br />

as low as possible and the<br />

focus should be on essential<br />

services.<br />

Roading was akey issue,<br />

he said.<br />

Carolyn Cameron said<br />

she was concerned with the<br />

CBD.<br />

It was full of weeds,<br />

empty shops and ‘‘needed<br />

fixing’’.<br />

The <strong>Ashburton</strong> Ward<br />

candidate said she supported<br />

an information centre,<br />

wanted pot holes prioritised,<br />

wanted a tidy town<br />

and urged the seniors to<br />

vote for change if they<br />

weren’t happy with the<br />

work of the current council.<br />

Rochelle Castle­Wilson<br />

said she was ‘‘the rookie’’ in<br />

the election and new to the<br />

region.<br />

This was her chance to<br />

give something back to the<br />

community.<br />

She had ‘‘no fancy<br />

slogans’’, but believed in<br />

common sense and fiscal<br />

prudence and would use<br />

her experience and skills to<br />

contribute.<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> accountant<br />

John Falloon said he would<br />

use his experience to ensure<br />

council spent wisely if elected<br />

in the <strong>Ashburton</strong> Ward.<br />

He believed in ‘‘getting<br />

the basics right’’.<br />

Current mayor Donna<br />

Favel said she wanted to<br />

continue to advocate for<br />

the district and to make it<br />

an even better place to live<br />

and work.<br />

She saw her role as an<br />

‘‘enabler’’ and was proud of<br />

the achievements ticked off<br />

by council this term.<br />

Fourth generation Mid<br />

Cantabrian Rodger<br />

Letham said there was ‘‘no<br />

magic wand and no easy<br />

answers’’ in local government.<br />

Getting the infrastructure<br />

of the district right<br />

was key, said the Western<br />

Ward candidate.<br />

Former <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

mayor Angus McKay said<br />

he had a‘‘deep love and<br />

passion’’ for the district that<br />

had been reignited recently.<br />

He said there needed to<br />

be tangible change and<br />

council needed to listen to<br />

the community first ‘‘before<br />

debating, discussing and<br />

deciding’’ on issues.<br />

Rates needed to be kept<br />

low, people needed to be<br />

attracted to the district and<br />

there needed to be sensible<br />

budgeting and lower debt.<br />

Liz McMillan, who<br />

standing in the Western<br />

Ward, said she was the<br />

youngest of the current<br />

crop on council and had ‘‘a<br />

lot to offer’’.<br />

She was active in the<br />

community, had taken on<br />

more responsibilities this<br />

term and was ‘‘all about<br />

common sense’’.<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> Ward candidate<br />

Selwyn Price said he<br />

wanted open and transparent<br />

decision making to continue<br />

around the council<br />

table.<br />

The council ‘‘had tidied<br />

up the messes’’ of previous<br />

councils to some extent and<br />

he had spoken out when he<br />

did not agree with decisions.<br />

His stand on the proposed<br />

relocation of the East<br />

Street fountain and the<br />

right of way access for St<br />

John had resulted in both<br />

decisions being revoked.<br />

Councillor Diane Rawlinson<br />

said she had enjoyed<br />

her three years on council<br />

and wanted to return.<br />

Roads and water were<br />

important to her and she<br />

was referred to by some as<br />

‘‘the pot hole lady’’ because<br />

of her road and pavement<br />

vigilance.<br />

There were exciting<br />

times ahead with the CBD<br />

redevelopment and she saw<br />

her role as a ‘‘connector’<br />

between the community<br />

and council.<br />

Eastern Ward candidate<br />

Philip Rushton said he<br />

wanted to drive costs down<br />

and bring back the saleyards<br />

to the district.<br />

Ash Shah said he was fed<br />

up with rate rises and<br />

wanted to apply his<br />

accountancy skills in the<br />

councillor role.<br />

Eastern Ward candidate<br />

Stuart Wilson said he<br />

believed councillors should<br />

serve everyone in the district,<br />

regardless of their<br />

ward.<br />

He was the ‘‘grandfather’’<br />

of the council, but<br />

had the experience and<br />

knowledge ‘‘to keep up with<br />

things’’.<br />

Roads were not up to<br />

scratch, he said, but progress<br />

had been made.<br />

The final presenter was<br />

ECan candidate Sarah<br />

Walters, who said the<br />

declared climate emergency<br />

and water concerns were<br />

big issues ahead.<br />

She promised to work<br />

Water proposals get immediate attention of rural sector<br />

You can be certain when<br />

the Government mentions<br />

water, and rules, it<br />

will get the attention of<br />

the rural sector.<br />

The measures proposed<br />

for Essential<br />

Freshwater ­ yes, these<br />

are still proposals ­drew<br />

an almost instant<br />

response from Federated<br />

Farmers and other rural<br />

bodies.<br />

They said, and we<br />

paraphrase, that the<br />

measures, if implemented,<br />

could impact on<br />

Erosion, water, hot fair topics<br />

By Greta Yeoman<br />

Erosion, water quality<br />

and sustainability were<br />

hot topics at this year’s<br />

Sanford Science and<br />

Technology Fair, committee<br />

member Derek Vogel<br />

says.<br />

More than 250 exhibits<br />

by Year 7­9 pupils were<br />

entered in the Aoraki<br />

science competition,<br />

which was held at Caroline<br />

Bay Hall, Timaru,<br />

last week.<br />

Winners had received<br />

more than $10,000 in<br />

prizes and prize money,<br />

he said.<br />

Mr Vogel said there<br />

had been more erosionrelated<br />

projects this year,<br />

which reflected the<br />

ongoing issues at Patiti<br />

Point and other areas of<br />

South Canterbury.<br />

‘‘A lot of the projects<br />

have been unique to Timaru.’’<br />

‘‘[They are topics] that<br />

have been in the news.’’<br />

Erosion was the topic of<br />

choice for overall third<br />

placegetter Madeline<br />

Page, from <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

Borough School.<br />

The 11­year­old Year 7<br />

pupil, whose project was<br />

about the best native<br />

plants toslow down erosion,<br />

had entered the<br />

competition for the first<br />

time, placing third and<br />

also getting agold award.<br />

She was also awarded<br />

the Irricon Resource<br />

Solutions Junior Gold<br />

award for the Best<br />

Creativity and Resourcefulness<br />

category, along<br />

with being Highly Commended<br />

in an Environment<br />

Canterbury award<br />

category.<br />

Maddie had chosen to<br />

focusonplants becauseit<br />

was topic she was familiar<br />

with.<br />

‘‘I really like them,’’<br />

she said of native plants.<br />

First place winner<br />

Daniel Poulter, from<br />

Gleniti School, had<br />

focused on bees and ways<br />

to get them to land on<br />

non­pesticide­sprayed<br />

plants, while second<br />

place duo Olivia Chapman<br />

and Elle Fraser from<br />

Geraldine High School<br />

looked at the best design<br />

for a bat­roosting nest<br />

box.<br />

Daniel Poulter’s project<br />

had also won him an<br />

overall Gold award, as<br />

well as the Andrew Falloon<br />

MP Technology Junior<br />

Award, one of two<br />

Barkers awards for the<br />

Best Use of Food Material<br />

and asilver award in<br />

the Irricon Resource<br />

Solutions Junior Best<br />

Creativity and Resourcefulness<br />

category.<br />

The Geraldine High<br />

School duo Olivia Chapman<br />

and Elle Fraser’s bat<br />

box project had also<br />

scored them an overall<br />

gold award, as well as the<br />

Senior Andrew Falloon<br />

MP Technology Award.<br />

Mr Vogel said there<br />

had been more entries<br />

this year than the last,<br />

however, this was likely<br />

because many schools<br />

entered on a two­yearly<br />

basis.<br />

Top­line sports campus<br />

proposed for Lake Hood<br />

A$50m sports campus is<br />

proposed for Lake Hood,<br />

southeast of <strong>Ashburton</strong>.<br />

It was announced to a<br />

business and civic audience<br />

at Lake Hood.<br />

The Southern Parallel<br />

Sports Campus is proposed<br />

by APT Sports<br />

Academy Ltd, supported<br />

by Aonghus NZ Ltd,<br />

Westbury Investment<br />

Group USA, investment<br />

partners, the Allied<br />

Forces Foundation, and<br />

through alliances with<br />

New Zealand and North<br />

American universities.<br />

The mission is to<br />

‘‘change the game’’ by<br />

offering aholistic campus<br />

for people wishing to<br />

develop their true potential<br />

in sport and life,<br />

sports resilience and<br />

endurance training, afull<br />

medical, mental health<br />

and nutrition clinics and<br />

academic programmes.<br />

Catherine Stuart, managing<br />

partner of Aonghus,<br />

said Lake Hood was<br />

the key factor in bringing<br />

the concept to the region.<br />

Those to benefit<br />

include high performance<br />

athletes, disabled athletes,<br />

‘‘wounded warriors’’,<br />

returned servicemen<br />

and women, and<br />

youth sports.<br />

APT Sports Academy<br />

would deliver targeted<br />

training and education<br />

programmes catering<br />

specifically to their<br />

‘‘physical, mental, selfesteem<br />

and education<br />

needs, and offering each<br />

a more focused path in<br />

life’’.<br />

The campus would also<br />

involve the Allied Forces<br />

Foundation, a joint<br />

British­American foundation<br />

which supported<br />

wounded soldiers and<br />

their families in conflicts<br />

following 9/11.<br />

The proposed campus<br />

would include an indoor<br />

3G pitch ­apitch on a<br />

firm base with long­pile<br />

artificial grass filled with<br />

sand and rubber crumb ­<br />

an outdoor G3 pitch, a<br />

running track, tennis, netball<br />

and basketball<br />

courts, a highperformance<br />

gym, swim<br />

resistance training, swim<br />

therapy, medical and<br />

therapy suites, anutrition<br />

centre, offices and boat<br />

shed.<br />

There would also be 20<br />

residential­style accommodation<br />

units and a<br />

lodge.<br />

The lodge would be<br />

created by lifting the roof<br />

of the existing Lake<br />

House (a pop­up restaurant<br />

will be created in<br />

the interim) and adding<br />

wings.<br />

When the work was<br />

finished, the restaurant<br />

would operate as normal.<br />

An agreement has<br />

been signed to buy the<br />

extra land needed for the<br />

complex, and New Zealand<br />

and international<br />

investors were sought.<br />

It was hoped the<br />

majority would be from<br />

New Zealand.<br />

The campus planned to<br />

hold two international<br />

meetings a year and<br />

would seek the Invictus<br />

Games, an international<br />

adaptive multi­sport<br />

event, created by Prince<br />

Harry, Duke of Sussex, in<br />

which wounded, injured<br />

or sick armed services<br />

personnel and their<br />

Care urged in<br />

lighting fires<br />

Fire officials are urging<br />

caution with too many fires<br />

escaping.<br />

Don Geddes, deputy<br />

principal rural fire officer<br />

for Mid and South Canterbury,<br />

said firefighters had<br />

dealt with five escaped fires<br />

in the past week and more<br />

care was needed.<br />

‘‘Most if not all were<br />

avoidable,’’ he said.<br />

The fires posed adanger<br />

and inconvenienced volunteer<br />

firefighters.<br />

Mr Geddes said it was<br />

still open season and<br />

people assumed it was safe<br />

because of the time of year,<br />

but not enough care was<br />

being taken.<br />

He said it was vital to<br />

check the weather forecast ­<br />

including the long­term forecast.<br />

It was also important to<br />

supervise fires, make sure<br />

wind would not take flames<br />

towards ahedge or trees, and<br />

have ameans of suppression<br />

on hand.<br />

It was also important to<br />

make sure fires were out.<br />

Embers should be raked<br />

and doused.<br />

Embers left smouldering<br />

could easily reignite many<br />

days after afire if awind got<br />

up.<br />

Mr Geddes said people<br />

were under­estimating the<br />

fire risk at this time of year.<br />

associated veterans take<br />

part in nine sports.<br />

There would also be<br />

tournaments for ablebodied<br />

athletes.<br />

The lodge would have<br />

20 accommodation<br />

suites, akitchen and restaurant,<br />

a bar lounge,<br />

guest lounge, a soundproofed<br />

event centre and<br />

offices.<br />

The sports complex<br />

would be built on vacant<br />

land away from the lodge.<br />

It was hoped to finalise<br />

investment by December<br />

this year and complete<br />

plans and consenting by<br />

January 2020 and construction<br />

to start in<br />

March 2020.<br />

It was proposed to<br />

open the complex in the<br />

first quarter of 2021.<br />

Geraint Howells, who<br />

has moved to <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

from Leeston, said he set<br />

up APT Sports Academy<br />

Ltd with ex Super Rugby<br />

player Ged Robinson,<br />

who looked for guidance<br />

after top rugby.<br />

They came up with an<br />

holistic approach to<br />

training.<br />

The academy would<br />

include online tuition.<br />

Apercentage of profits<br />

would go to help disabled<br />

children.<br />

The campus will have<br />

up to 200 attendees and<br />

up to 70 staff.<br />

The rowing lake would<br />

be a key part of the<br />

campus.<br />

Mr Howells trained in<br />

the UK as a landscape<br />

architect and designer.<br />

Catherine Stuart said<br />

the campus was a great<br />

opportunity for the district<br />

and she wanted the<br />

community to be<br />

involved.<br />

There were very few<br />

campuses like the one<br />

proposed in the world.<br />

Promoters looked<br />

closely at Christchurch<br />

for the campus but<br />

wanted a ‘‘destination’’<br />

and <strong>Ashburton</strong> was a<br />

great region, and Lake<br />

Hood was the icing on the<br />

cake.<br />

second consecutive year for<br />

the Blue Do event at the<br />

venue.<br />

Last year $1758 had been<br />

raised for the Prostate Cancer<br />

‘‘We have had acouple of<br />

regulars die from prostate cancer<br />

over the last couple of<br />

years, so it’s been close to<br />

Do evening ran from 6pm and<br />

until midnight.<br />

The band Nine Lives would<br />

perform from 7pm until the<br />

start ofthe live rugby (9.45pm<br />

kick off) and then again after<br />

the game was over.<br />

She said fundraising at the<br />

Turf Bar was running throughout<br />

<strong>September</strong> and to date<br />

around $500 had been raised<br />

through raffles and other<br />

initiatives.<br />

cause. Prizesinclude askydive,<br />

School fair on Saturday<br />

There is something for everyone<br />

at this Saturday’s Allenton School<br />

fair.<br />

The biennial event has atheme<br />

of Lights, Camera, Action and<br />

will feature a photo booth,<br />

bouncy castle, silent auction, food<br />

options and much more.<br />

An entertainment stage will<br />

feature singers, dancers and a<br />

choir.<br />

Lining up to go in the dunk<br />

tank on the day will be school<br />

principal Bruce Tilby and local<br />

MPs Andrew Falloon and Jo<br />

Luxton.<br />

Other attractions include a<br />

mini digger, motorbike rides and<br />

a science showcase with live<br />

experiments.<br />

Fair co­coordinator Pam Carr<br />

said Skydiving Kiwis would drop<br />

into the school grounds to open<br />

the fair at 11am.<br />

She said there would be 18<br />

class artworks auctioned off at<br />

the end of the event at 2pm and,<br />

in between, there were plenty of<br />

options to keep the whole family<br />

occupied.<br />

Allenton School’s Room 15 class of new entrants have<br />

collaborated to create this colourful artwork for the auction on<br />

Saturday.<br />

There was also face painting<br />

and wacky hair options and<br />

students had also filled treasure<br />

jars for sale with a range of<br />

‘‘goodies’’.<br />

A fairy would be ‘‘floating’’<br />

around waving her magic wand<br />

and the fair was strictly cash only,<br />

said Mrs Carr.<br />

Funds raised from the fair will<br />

be used to support playground<br />

upgrades at the school.<br />

Scenic Salmon Run back<br />

Rakaia Lions and local sports club<br />

volunteers are gearing up for the<br />

fifth annual Jackson Holmes<br />

Salmon Run on October <strong>19</strong>.<br />

Every year something new is<br />

added to the event and this year<br />

there’s anew section of mountain<br />

bike track and the inclusion of a<br />

business challenge.<br />

An extra 4.5km has been added<br />

to the existing 22km mountain bike<br />

course and while the regular track<br />

is fast and flat and provides athletes<br />

with the opportunity to get the<br />

heart rate up, the new portion is<br />

more technical and requires afew<br />

more skills.<br />

The new bike section goes under<br />

the railway and vehicle bridges, out<br />

to the river’s edge and along<br />

fisherman tracks to the Acton<br />

Race. From there it heads through<br />

apine plantation and will feature<br />

obstacles and tree roots in areas<br />

that have never been raced before.<br />

Salmon Run organising<br />

committee member Mandy Hurst<br />

said the extra bike track section<br />

would add more interest to<br />

competitors and the second<br />

addition, the Farmlands Cup<br />

Challenge which emerged after a<br />

few ripples amidst sponsors,<br />

opened up the opportunity for<br />

businesses to get involved.<br />

All businesses were invited to<br />

participate in the challenge, she<br />

said.<br />

As well as the cup, the winner<br />

would have ‘‘the bragging rights’’<br />

for the business who received the<br />

most points over all seven events<br />

for encouraging participation,<br />

health and fitness.<br />

‘‘This is achance to inspire your<br />

work mates, members and<br />

supporters to enter because,<br />

regardless of where they finish,<br />

every entry counts as well as<br />

placings.’’<br />

Everyone taking part in the<br />

Salmon Run was able to win<br />

medals and cash prizes and would<br />

be in the draw to win some amazing<br />

spot prizes given by generous<br />

sponsors and event supporters, said<br />

Mrs Hurst.<br />

As well as mountain biking, the<br />

event features multi­sport events,<br />

two duathlons, walking and<br />

running options.<br />

Events are aimed at both the<br />

competitive and non­competitive<br />

athletes, individuals or teams.<br />

All events start and finish in the<br />

Rakaia Domain and most races<br />

follow, cross or use the Rakaia<br />

River.<br />

Students at Mount Hutt<br />

ways to work differently<br />

with mathematics<br />

and tomake learning the<br />

subject more relevant for<br />

the 21st century.<br />

Ideas, experiments and<br />

enthusiasm developed<br />

over the last few months<br />

will be showcased at a<br />

scale, budgeting, pricing<br />

and marketing to bake up<br />

cupcakes. Others have<br />

been learning about ratios<br />

and proportions through<br />

designing and creating<br />

wooden dice.<br />

Year 8 students have<br />

been busy coming upwith<br />

ideas on the next big thing<br />

Mount Hutt College<br />

head of mathematics and<br />

statistics JackieBrown said<br />

it hadbeenanexcitingand<br />

experimental few months<br />

for maths at the school.<br />

She said the announcement<br />

of her Boma Education<br />

Fellowship at the end<br />

of last year had given her<br />

the drive and confidence<br />

to introduce ‘‘innovative<br />

teaching and learning<br />

ideas’’ into the school that<br />

aimed to make apositive<br />

difference.<br />

Mrs Brown said the<br />

fellowship had put her<br />

among an elite group of<br />

Canterbury educators who<br />

were able to thrash out<br />

ideas and celebrate<br />

initiatives that could be<br />

introduced into schools.<br />

‘‘A trip to America earlier<br />

in the year with the<br />

Boma Fellows provided<br />

me with an insight into<br />

what other schools are<br />

doing,the boundaries they<br />

are pushing in education<br />

and the challenges they<br />

have come upagainst.’’<br />

She said her chosen<br />

project was based around<br />

improving the perceptions<br />

that our community has<br />

towards mathematics.<br />

‘‘To do that we need to<br />

challenge what learning in<br />

mathematics looks like.<br />

This is where the project<br />

based learning has come<br />

in.<br />

‘‘We have been trialling<br />

using projectstointroduce<br />

key mathematical ideas to<br />

students, to engage and<br />

motivate them in their<br />

learning and to work on<br />

developing their key competencies.’’<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> based CanInspire Charitable Trust continues<br />

to go from strength to strength and has now<br />

landed television presenter Haydn Jones as its first<br />

ambassador.<br />

Afamiliar face on programmes such as Fair Go,<br />

and the long­running Good Sorts slot on Sunday’s TV<br />

One News, Jones was in town on Saturday to get an<br />

update on the work and expansion of the trust over<br />

the last few years.<br />

CanInspire originated from the experiences of<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> resident Sarah Clifford, who underwent<br />

28 days of radiation for melanoma in 2010 and during<br />

that time created and wore adifferent necklace each<br />

day in hospital to distract her from the treatment.<br />

She later established beading workshops through<br />

CanBead to help others in similar situations and to<br />

help give them a sense of achievement and<br />

distraction.<br />

The CanInspire Charitable Trust was set up later<br />

and then CanTackle, which offers fishing distraction<br />

workshops, followed.<br />

The workshops are free and offered to people<br />

experiencing illness, trauma and loss.<br />

Haydn Jones said he had first come across Sarah<br />

Clifford’s inspirational story eight years ago when she<br />

had featured on Good Sorts.<br />

He had been able to stay in her life over the years<br />

and ‘‘just couldn’t say no’’ when asked to be an<br />

ambassador for CanInspire.<br />

Good Sorts had told the story of around 500 people<br />

over its 10 years and he would continue telling the<br />

story of Sarah Clifford and the great work of<br />

CanInspire.<br />

Responses put to test<br />

Emergencyplanning and<br />

multiple­agency<br />

response procedures<br />

were put to the test last<br />

week during an emergency<br />

planning exercise<br />

at <strong>Ashburton</strong> Hospital.<br />

The ‘‘table top’’ exercise,<br />

Urapare, theorised<br />

amock explosion in the<br />

stores area at <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

Hospital, which caused a<br />

fire and large quantities<br />

of smoke, which was<br />

later discovered to be<br />

hazardous.<br />

The participants in the<br />

exercise acted as if the<br />

event had really happened,<br />

but did not<br />

deploy real­life<br />

resources and equipment.<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> Hospital<br />

general manager Berni<br />

Marra was incident controller,<br />

and Fire and<br />

Emergency New Zealand<br />

the lead agency on<br />

the exercise.<br />

In the scenario, FENZ<br />

and the police were<br />

called, the fire was<br />

brought under control<br />

and a cordon put in<br />

place to protect staffand<br />

public from further hazards.<br />

A number of people<br />

were evacuated from the<br />

scene with injuries ranging<br />

from smoke inhalation<br />

and the irritant<br />

effects of smoke, to serious<br />

burns.<br />

‘‘The test scenario<br />

went very well, but the<br />

whole point of testing<br />

our processes and<br />

response is to tease out<br />

deficiencies in the system<br />

and if we think we<br />

got everything right and<br />

have nothing to learn,<br />

then we may have missed<br />

the point somewhere,’’<br />

Ms Mara said.<br />

The scenario posed<br />

some unique challenges<br />

and tested the basic principles<br />

in all emergency<br />

scenarios, including how<br />

and where the emergency<br />

operations centre<br />

would be set up, how the<br />

co­ordinated incident<br />

management structure<br />

(CIMS) would operate<br />

in practice, and how<br />

effective communications<br />

would be used to<br />

provide information,<br />

minimise harm orloss of<br />

life, damage to property<br />

or the environment, and<br />

the future ability to provide<br />

services.<br />

‘‘A critical area and<br />

something that can<br />

always bedone better is<br />

the sharing of information<br />

and our management<br />

of communications<br />

to staff and the public ­<br />

we recognise for<br />

example that there are<br />

periods during an event<br />

when there are more<br />

things we don’t know<br />

than things we do, and<br />

that we can’t share fast<br />

enough but we can certainly<br />

share too quickly.<br />

Our challenge is to<br />

resolve those unknowns<br />

as quickly as we can,<br />

without risking saying<br />

something that later<br />

turns out to be inaccurate.’’<br />

Ms Marra said the<br />

greatest value from the<br />

exercise was recognising<br />

and appreciating the<br />

part all agencies had to<br />

play in a multi­agency<br />

Race bylaws get the tick<br />

response and that<br />

worked when they were<br />

needed.<br />

‘‘The public should be<br />

reassured that, although<br />

all the agencies involved<br />

have experienced many<br />

real­life scenarios, that<br />

we take nothing for<br />

granted ­ and that we<br />

continue to test our systems<br />

and to learn from<br />

the experience,’’ she<br />

said.<br />

Funding through<br />

for domain<br />

gym equipment<br />

Funding, finally, has<br />

been sorted out for adult<br />

exercise equipment in<br />

the <strong>Ashburton</strong> Domain.<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> council’s<br />

Finance and Business<br />

Support Committee has<br />

approved $100,000 from<br />

the council’s Purchase<br />

and Improvement<br />

account for the gear.<br />

The allocation was<br />

agreed along time ago<br />

but was inadvertently<br />

missed out of the final<br />

Long Term Plan.<br />

The committee has<br />

now approved the<br />

money.<br />

It did so as it also<br />

approved a range of<br />

carry­over funds, including<br />

$673,642 for water<br />

capital works, $144,348<br />

for asset renewals<br />

(drinking water), and<br />

$375,232 for atreatment<br />

upgrade on the Methven/Springfield<br />

scheme.<br />

There were also carryovers<br />

in wastewater, stormwater,<br />

Three Waters,<br />

transportation, democracy,<br />

commercial property,<br />

cemeteries, parks<br />

and open spaces, and hall<br />

boards.<br />

Cr Neil Brown said he<br />

mentioned it every year,<br />

but funds had to be spent.<br />

He knew there were<br />

reasons some of the work<br />

had not been done, but<br />

‘‘get into it and get it<br />

spent; we rate for it and<br />

people expect it to be<br />

spent’’.<br />

Mayor Donna Favel<br />

said the council was consulting<br />

in February onits<br />

draft plan for the <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

Domain and wondered<br />

if there would be<br />

any conflict with that and<br />

the funds for the exercise<br />

equipment.<br />

Finance manager Paul<br />

Brake said the money<br />

would not be spent until<br />

after consultation.<br />

Roads named<br />

Two roads in the Village<br />

Green subdivision south<br />

of Lake Hood will be<br />

known as Village Green<br />

Drive and Springdale<br />

Avenue.<br />

The subdivision is off<br />

Huntington Avenue, just<br />

to the east of Lake Hood<br />

Aquatic Park zone.<br />

A draft policy of water<br />

races has been approved<br />

by the <strong>Ashburton</strong> council’s<br />

bylaw committee for<br />

sign off by council on<br />

<strong>September</strong> 26, the final<br />

meeting for this term of<br />

council.<br />

Council started the<br />

bylaw work several years<br />

ago and has heard submissions<br />

on it.<br />

The work has involved<br />

reviewing the 2012 bylaw<br />

and an existing policy on<br />

the closure of races.<br />

The aim is to bring the<br />

operational aspects of<br />

the policy into standard<br />

form to explain how the<br />

council manages applications<br />

to close races.<br />

There are several<br />

thousands kilometres of<br />

races in the district.<br />

Many have been<br />

closed. Some farmers<br />

want the races; many do<br />

not.<br />

Land owners pay a<br />

race rate even if they do<br />

not use or need the<br />

water.<br />

Council is also working<br />

with irrigation companies<br />

on supplying<br />

water for stock.<br />

In all, council passed 20<br />

recommendations.<br />

In some instances<br />

where applications have<br />

been made to close races,<br />

some have wanted them<br />

closed and some have<br />

not.<br />

Akey recommendation<br />

is that the bylaw subcommittee<br />

refer all submissions<br />

concerning the<br />

funding of the water race<br />

network to areview of the<br />

council’s Revenue and<br />

Financing Policy.<br />

The network is funded<br />

through a targeted rate,<br />

and it ran at adeficit in<br />

2017/18 and 2018/<strong>19</strong>.<br />

That deficit ‘‘may<br />

affect what the council<br />

considers an affordable<br />

level of service in the<br />

short to medium term’’.<br />

A report to the committee<br />

that several submitters<br />

addressed the<br />

question of how to fund<br />

stock races in future<br />

One of the last submitters<br />

on the draft policy,<br />

Alastair Morrison,<br />

said he did not agree that<br />

the land owner oroccupier<br />

should be responsible<br />

to pay the water<br />

rates when they had been<br />

encouraged to fence races<br />

to keep cattle out of<br />

them, ‘‘also theymaintain<br />

the races and in most<br />

cases they have had to<br />

find another source of<br />

water for their stock,<br />

install anew reticulation<br />

system and, in my case,<br />

shift water races because<br />

others still wanted them<br />

only to find out a year<br />

later that they have<br />

changed their minds and<br />

shut the water race off<br />

completely, leaving me<br />

thousands of dollars out<br />

of pocket’’.<br />

‘‘I thinkthe people that<br />

still want the open race<br />

system should pay extra<br />

for the service, this would<br />

encourage them to look<br />

for other ways to provide<br />

stock water. Asitstands<br />

at the moment, the owner<br />

of asmall lifestyle block<br />

has as muchsay as alarge<br />

land owner whenitcomes<br />

to closing arace.’’<br />

He said he did not<br />

agree with the idea of<br />

leaving races open<br />

because of their ecological<br />

values as they were<br />

not natural water ways<br />

and the quality of water<br />

was questionable.<br />

Mr Morrison said leaving<br />

races open for flood<br />

control did not make any<br />

sense as in heavy rain<br />

debris was washed into<br />

races and blocked<br />

culverts, adding to flooding<br />

problems.<br />

Mr Morrison said there<br />

shouldbeprovision in the<br />

plans for a group of<br />

people who needed stock<br />

water to get together to<br />

have their own community<br />

groundwater­sourced<br />

scheme rather than having<br />

stock races going<br />

across the district.<br />

Surprise life honour for<br />

Winchmore stalwart<br />

The long and outstanding<br />

service given by<br />

Winchmore woman Margaret<br />

Kelk has earned<br />

her a life membership<br />

with the Winchmore<br />

Branch of Rural Women<br />

New Zealand.<br />

Margaret has been<br />

with the Winchmore<br />

branch for the past 30<br />

years, joining the (then)<br />

Winchmore Women’s<br />

Division Federated Farmers<br />

(WDFF), after<br />

relocating to Mid Canterbury.<br />

She has not only been<br />

president (<strong>19</strong>94­96) but<br />

has served a collective<br />

period of 20 years plus as<br />

treasurer; from <strong>19</strong>89­99<br />

under the name of<br />

WDFF and then with the<br />

name change to Royal<br />

Women New Zealand<br />

(RWNZ) from<br />

<strong>19</strong>99­20<strong>19</strong>.<br />

She was awarded the<br />

the surprise honour after<br />

presenting her 20th<br />

annual report to the<br />

branch members last<br />

month.<br />

President Elsa Hydes<br />

made the presentation<br />

acknowledging the ‘‘contribution<br />

of a tremendous<br />

amount to WDFF<br />

and Rural Women over<br />

the years’’, and fellow<br />

member Ngaire Brown<br />

presented her with abouquet<br />

of flowers.<br />

During Margaret’s<br />

presidency the branch<br />

ran school holiday<br />

productions of Cinderella<br />

and Peter Pan, which<br />

allowed children of the<br />

district and neighbouring<br />

areas to take part.<br />

‘‘These were very successful<br />

and rewarding<br />

programmes being well<br />

supported and certainly<br />

profiled and entertained<br />

our district.’’<br />

And for the past two<br />

decades, Margaret has<br />

ensured that the finances<br />

of the branch have been<br />

kept in order and<br />

adjusting to new criteria<br />

and forms from national<br />

office, and allowing some<br />

generous donations to<br />

organisations such as the<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> Trust Event<br />

Centre and the EA Networks<br />

Centre, as well as<br />

the Winchmore Community<br />

Hall Society Inc<br />

for upgrades they have<br />

undertaken over the<br />

years. The curtains hanging<br />

at the hall were made<br />

by Margaret.<br />

Margaret was amember<br />

of the committee<br />

which, in December<br />

2006, supported afundraising<br />

project for Breast<br />

Cancer Research. A2008<br />

calendar (similar to the<br />

concept in the popular<br />

Calendar Girls Movie)<br />

was initiated with the<br />

calendars being sold for<br />

$15. Margaret was Miss<br />

November.<br />

The proceeds saw<br />

$26,210.36 presented to<br />

Breast Cancer Research,<br />

which was overseen by<br />

Margaret.<br />

‘‘Margaret is adab hand<br />

at providing alarge number<br />

of graces for many<br />

functions, ideas and success<br />

with the <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

A&P Show trays, supporting<br />

many an event with the<br />

branch and providing a<br />

district Father Christmas.’’<br />

Bell makes connections<br />

overseas for <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

By Mick Jensen<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> councillor<br />

Thelma Bell packed alot<br />

into arecent trip toher<br />

homeland ofthe Philippines<br />

and made connections<br />

that she hopes may<br />

help boost future trade<br />

andfill alabourshortage<br />

in Mid Canterbury.<br />

The self­funded trip<br />

took her to two dairy<br />

training schools, two agri<br />

tourism farms, meetings<br />

with the Department of<br />

Agriculture and Chamber<br />

of Commerce in<br />

Davao City, and talks<br />

with staff at the Technical<br />

Education and<br />

Skills Development<br />

Authority (TESDA),<br />

also in Davao City.<br />

She also made courtesy<br />

calls to the mayors<br />

of Tagum City and<br />

Pagadian City, visited a<br />

banana plantation<br />

owned byaFilipino family<br />

living in <strong>Ashburton</strong>,<br />

met amissionary couple<br />

running a street kids<br />

feeding programme supported<br />

by <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

New Life Church and<br />

made time to catch up<br />

with an executive director<br />

of the GMA Network,<br />

who visited <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

in late 2017 to<br />

make atelevision documentary<br />

about Filipinos<br />

living in New Zealand.<br />

Mrs Bell, the first<br />

Philippines­born local<br />

government councillor<br />

in New Zealand, said the<br />

trip hadbeenbusy,interesting<br />

and informative.<br />

‘‘For meitwas about<br />

fact finding and making<br />

connections and sharing<br />

information about New<br />

Zealand.<br />

‘‘I’m hoping that some<br />

of my discussions may<br />

help facilitate a trade<br />

expo here in <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

oneday thatwill helpput<br />

both New Zealand and<br />

Filipino goods and<br />

services in the spotlight.’’<br />

The likes ofseed companies,<br />

Anzco and Talleys<br />

could all potentially<br />

benefit from it.<br />

Mrs Bell, who has<br />

lived in New Zealand<br />

since <strong>19</strong>87 and in this<br />

district since <strong>19</strong>89, said<br />

she had specifically spoken<br />

to people that were<br />

involved in trade, education<br />

and dairy training<br />

on her trip and those<br />

connections could be<br />

expanded.<br />

‘‘I explained that here<br />

in Mid Canterbury we<br />

have a very low unemployment<br />

rate and that<br />

skilled workers, whether<br />

they work in the dairy<br />

industry, or are mechanics<br />

or lorrydrivers, are<br />

always needed.’’<br />

Deputy Principal Message<br />

Engaged in Learning forLife<br />

As aschool community, we are all learners. This<br />

includes our students, teachers, support staff,<br />

whānau, local employers and wider community.<br />

Throughout our lives, wecontinue tolearn new<br />

skills and knowledge as well as having new<br />

experiences.<br />

An illustration of how much we learn comes<br />

through athoughtexperiment –imagine youare<br />

eightyears old again. Did youknowasmuch then as youdonow?<br />

The same concept can be applied to other age groups. For parents and<br />

caregivers, when you were sixteen did you know asmuch as you did at<br />

thirty?Hopefully this illustration has the effectofhelping students realise<br />

thatthe advicetheyreceivefromthe adults in their lifeislikely based on<br />

experienceand mistakes made,and is worthgivingserious consideration!<br />

Learning is acomplex business. Itrequires patience, perseverance and,<br />

invariably, frustration. Three specific components of the learning process<br />

that Iwill discuss here are the importance ofreflection, evaluation and<br />

feedback/feedforward. These are particularly relevant tomany ofour<br />

senior students, with in-College exams now behind them and written<br />

reports on the way, before the end-of-year examinations in November.<br />

Thesame conceptsdo, however, apply to all learning.<br />

Reflection and Evaluation<br />

When atask has been completed,itisimportanttotakethe time to step<br />

back and reflect. Consider what went well,areas forfurther improvement,<br />

did Igivethismybest effortand did Iachievemygoal? It maybeatime for<br />

celebration or it maybewhenyou consider achangeofdirection.<br />

Theimportantpartofreflection and evaluation is thatyou take the time to<br />

consider theoutcome of your actions,with aviewtolearning and moving<br />

forwardbetter than before.<br />

Feedback and Feedforward<br />

There are times in the learning process that you are unsure of‘where to’<br />

next. At these times, one of the most powerful learning strategies is to<br />

seek and apply feedback and feedforward.<br />

As the name suggests, feedback is commentary onprevious tasks. Inan<br />

exam context,thisiswhat youhavedone well and whatyou have missed.<br />

While this is useful information, feedback is only as useful as whatyou do<br />

with it.<br />

This is where feedforward comes in. Seeking and applying specific<br />

advice towork that you do in the future isthe key to making progress<br />

and continuing to move forward. My advicetostudentsistobeactivein<br />

seeking feedforward and be suretoapply it in the future.<br />

As aschool,weendeavour to use and model the same learning processes.<br />

One piece ofwork that we are collectively embarking upon is making<br />

our teaching and learning in the school more culturally responsive and<br />

more relational, asaway of improving achievement and well-being for<br />

all of our students.This is focused on teachers and students building and<br />

maintaining strong,learning focused relationships and providing learning<br />

opportunities thatare relevantand relatable to students’lives outside of<br />

the school.<br />

As part ofthis process, wehave recently undertaken an evaluation and<br />

reflection known asRongohia te Hau. This translates tothe metaphor<br />

‘listening to the winds of change’. It is an evaluative tool that gives us<br />

cause topause, reflect, and consider the next steps in our learning<br />

journey. This process includes classroom observations and collecting<br />

the voice ofstudents, teachers and whānau through surveys. Iwould<br />

like to thank everyone who took the time to fill in the survey, in order to<br />

share their perspective onwhere we are atinour journey of continuous<br />

improvement.<br />

Whenyou stop learning,you will stop growing.Becomingmaturenot only<br />

entails your age, but it should also speak highly of how much you have<br />

learned through the years. Seize every chance tolearn. There are alot of<br />

ways to learnand life is but ahuge classroom.<br />

Whaowhia te ketemātauranga. Fill the basket of knowledge.<br />

The Management Team was Kaye Kennedy (Coach), Chelsea Corbett<br />

in the morning and then aclose win over Nayland College (35-31) in the<br />

afternoon.<br />

Day2sawthe team playing against last year’s runners-up team, Southland<br />

Girls’High School.This proved, asexpected, to be avery tight game with it<br />

all tied up at 21-all at the end of the thirdquarter. Twocrucial turnovers saw<br />

the AshColl team come away with a29-26 win, to toptheirpool.<br />

Moving into cross-over games, first up was Central Southland. Again this<br />

was avery close encounter with scores even attwo minutes remaining.<br />

However, the girlsheldtheir composuretocome away with a33-32 win.<br />

Day 3saw play moved outside, due to the indoor venue being booked for<br />

basketball,and with that, Murphy’s Lawmeantthe rain came also!<br />

The team’s first game was against astrong Nelson College for Girls’ side.<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> College was down by12-18 athalf-time but the girls kept their<br />

composureand belieftowin 33-30, placing them nowinto the top8.<br />

Thefinal cross-over game laterinthe day, in the pouring rain, wasagainst<br />

Rangiora High School, ateam College had not beaten inthe Christchurch<br />

SuperNet competition this season. Asuperb game by the whole team saw<br />

AshColl win this game 37-23.<br />

NationalsQualification<br />

At this stage the team was now into the semi-finals and assured of<br />

qualification forNationals!<br />

Thesemi-finals and finals games were,predictably, tough. First up wasthe<br />

game against averystrong Christchurch Girls’HighSchool team (SuperNet<br />

Competition winners, semi-finalists in the Christchurch Premier Grade<br />

competition, and the eventual South Island Secondary Schools’ winners).<br />

This game wasjust abridge toofar forCollege,going down 21-34.<br />

GameOutcomes<br />

Monday’sgame was against Waitaki Boys’ High School, with Lisa saying<br />

that inthe first quarter College’s defence was lacking, with Waitaki Boys’<br />

scoring first. However, that got the team motivated and on track, gaining<br />

controlfor the majorityofthe game. Theteamwas abit unlucky by gifting<br />

Waitakiagoal but,overall,College had astrong attack whichwas reflectedin<br />

the final 4-3 scoreto<strong>Ashburton</strong>College. In quarters 2-4 College maintained<br />

their one goal lead.<br />

Zane Cameron was awarded the College team’s Player of the Match<br />

for ahard work rate, being in front ofhis opponent and creating several<br />

opportunitieswith the team scoring from one of these.<br />

On Tuesday the team had astrong first and second quarter, with the half<br />

time score3-1 to Roncalli College.<br />

However, the strength and size ofthe opposition was evident throughout<br />

the second half, albeit the College team held their own often and played<br />

well throughout the entiregame. The full-time scorewas 6-1 to Roncalli.<br />

Archie Glanville was our Player of the Match, playing well and making<br />

manysavesthroughout the game.<br />

Wednesday brought awin over St Kevin’s College. In the first quarter<br />

AshColl scored quickly, working as a team, and communicating well.<br />

Unfortunately that left one of the St Kevin’s players unmarked, from which<br />

they scored in the last 10 seconds of the quarter.<br />

During the second quarter College stepped uponattack, created more<br />

opportunities and applied pressure, scoring directly in front ofthe goal.<br />

St Kevin’s defence inthe second half was strong but College held them off<br />

forthe remainingthree quarters,for a2-1 win.<br />

Tim Connelly-Whyte was our Player ofthe Match, having shown great<br />

defence.<br />

Result – this meant the team finishedsecond-placed in Pool B, from the<br />

four teams.<br />

Semi-final play on Thursday<br />

This was played against Papanui High School, who were second-placed<br />

in Pool C.<br />

Lisa said the team startedoffslowly,but were first to score. This wasfollowed<br />

by many opportunities but Papanui’s goalie was outstanding and stopped<br />

manyofour shots. However,the scorestayedat1-0 to Collegeathalftime.<br />

Papanui then scored early in the 3rd quarter and again inthe 4th, but that<br />

wasdisalloweddue to it beingoffthe back of stick.<br />

This brought the game toa1-all draw at full time, and into the nervewracking<br />

penalty shot process which, excitingly and due to exceptional<br />

keeping from Archie Glanville, resulted in a3-1 victory to College.<br />

Player of the Match went to Lachie Jemmett for his determination<br />

throughout the game.<br />

Finals Play on Friday<br />

This wasagainst St Peter’sCollege, playing for5th or 6th placing.<br />

In this game St Peter’s scored twice, and quickly, inthe third and sixth<br />

minutesofthe firstquarter. Although forthe rest of thegame, College had<br />

the majority of possession and plenty of opportunities, they were just not<br />

able to score. Another twogoals by St Peter’sinthe finalquartergave them<br />

a4-0 win.<br />

Boys’1st XI Hockey,9th placed<br />

This team played inthe Johnson Cup tournament held in Invercargill from<br />

02-06 <strong>September</strong>.<br />

Team members were Cole Aitken, Connor Allan, Cole Beeman,<br />

Jed Cameron, Ryan Geeson, Jacob Gray, Ryan Maslin, Jonty Small,<br />

Harry Soal, Dante Vannini, Henry Wallis, William Wallis, Ethan Walsh,<br />

Reece Watson, Todd White, Zac White; with Coach Tom Walkham and<br />

ManagerJason Vannini.<br />

Opening Day onMonday 02<strong>September</strong> held two games. The game<br />

against Nelson College wasdescribedbyJason as quiteopen, with Nelson<br />

having anumber of chances in the first two quarters, including six short<br />

corners which were denied by JacobGray in goal,with good supportfrom<br />

Cole Beeman. Thehalf-time scorewas 0-0.<br />

In the third quarter <strong>Ashburton</strong> got up the field abit more but could not<br />

manage to forceacorner and again had to defend anumber of shots at goal<br />

which they did successfully.The fourth quarterwas more of the same,with<br />

some greatdefence and acouple of breaks from <strong>Ashburton</strong>College but not<br />

quiteable to be finished off. Consequently the final scoreremained at 0-0.<br />

The game against Cashmere High School saw Cashmere come out with<br />

hardflat passes,findingspacetoslotagoal home in the first quarter.<br />

In the second quarter they scored another early on, but College defended<br />

resolutely for the rest of the half, with Jonty Small doing particularly well<br />

at holding them out. The third quarter was quite even with Cole Aitken<br />

nearly scoring off agreat pass from Jed Cameron. However, Cashmere<br />

scored another goal to make it 3-0 at the end of the thirdquarter. Thefourth<br />

quarterwas quiteevenagain, with the only real highlight being agreat save<br />

off apenaltystroke by JacobGray to keep the final scoreat3-0.<br />

Tuesday’sgame wasagainst Mt Roskill Grammar School, who were also<br />

without awin at thatstage.Aclosely-foughtfirst quarter, with neither side<br />

having manychances at goal,finished at 0-0.The second quarterwas similar,<br />

with both sides missing an opportunitytoscore,but Mt Roskill opened the<br />

scoring in the twenty ninth minutewith awell-taken fieldgoal to bring the<br />

scoreto0-1 at halftime.<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> College came out strongly in the third quarter with HarrySoal<br />

scoring from apenalty corner in the thirty fourth minute. Although a<br />

Mt Roskill player received ayellow card shortly afterward, AshColl was<br />

unable to capitalise on having an extraman.<br />

In the final quarterboth sides had chances,but neither wasable to convert,<br />

so the thirdquarter scoreremained, with thegame finishing as a1-all draw.<br />

On Wednesday the team played Otago Boys’High School. Acouple of<br />

positional changes were made, with Cole Beeman moving to Centre Back<br />

and Zac White up to half tostrengthen more forward play. Improved<br />

marking in the first partofthe quarterkept Otago Boys out,until adeflection<br />

into the goal midway through the quarter. The balance ofthe quarter saw<br />

playsee-sawbackwardsand forwarduntil Otago Boys’scoredwith the last<br />

playofthe quartertomake it 2-0.<br />

This score held throughout quarters two and three despite AshColl<br />

coming out strongly in the third quarter with some good runs forward by<br />

ReeceWatson and Todd White, and some nice touches by Connor Allan<br />

on the left wing. AshColl pushed forward inthe fourth quarter but was<br />

unable to find the back of the net. Some good defence byRyan Geeson<br />

helped keep Otago Boys scoreless and contributed to what was probably<br />

the strongest half of hockey to this point.<br />

Wednesday’s Game 2was against Waimea College, amust-win game if<br />

the team was tofinish inthe middle of the pool. However Waimea started<br />

strongly with agoal in the first quarter offadeflection inthe circle and<br />

finished the quarter 1-0 ahead. After an even second quarter, the third<br />

quarter AshColl attacked again and scored agood goal by Todd White in<br />

the thirty eighth minutetofinish the quarterat1-1.<br />

Both teams pressed forward for the winning goal in the last quarter with<br />

Waimea achieving this with five minutes to go, with 2-1 to Waimea being<br />

the final score.<br />

Thursday’s play brought the start of the lower three teams Round Robin<br />

College made some changes with Todd White moving into goal and<br />

JacobGray to Centre Back.James Hargest startedstrongly and scored after<br />

twominutes,offapenaltycorner.However,College responded aftereleven<br />

minutes with awell-taken goal by Harry Soal to make the score 1-1. The<br />

second quarter saw Cole Aitken score agoal to have College leading 2-1<br />

at halftime.<br />

College was denied two goals in the third quarter due to the ball just not<br />

travelling outside the circle at aPenalty Corner, and starting play too early<br />

while an opposition playerwas being green carded!<br />

In the fourth quarterJames Hargest scored again and the game finished 2-2<br />

to bring up the team’s thirddrawofthe tournament.<br />

good run into the circle and slotted another goal to bring the score to2-0<br />

at end of first quarter.<br />

The second quarter was more even with both sides just missing two good<br />

chances each but no scores eventuated. The 3rd and 4th quarters were<br />

both quiteopen, and some good goalkeepingbyTodd White anddefence<br />

by William Wallis kept Waimea out, and allowed for agood end to the<br />

In <strong>19</strong>98, my husband David<br />

and Itook over the Regent<br />

Theatre. My background<br />

in administration, sales<br />

and marketing –and his in<br />

showmanship, was astrong<br />

foundation to succeed. We<br />

have worked tirelessly to<br />

breathe new life into a<br />

revamped business model<br />

(nowRegentCinema)<br />

In 2010, Istood for Council and have since served nine<br />

years,six as Councillorand three as Mayor.<br />

After operating the Cinema for 21 years and<br />

Council nine years, I can assure you there are<br />

many similarities – always keep an eye on the<br />

bottom line, seek out opportunities, work<br />

Neil Brown<br />

I am a born and bred<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> family man,<br />

having attended school<br />

here, been married to Judy<br />

for 27 years and raised<br />

three children here. I’ve<br />

lived and worked on farms<br />

throughout the district all<br />

my working life and have<br />

business interests in our<br />

towns. Asboth arural and<br />

urban resident and ratepayer, Ihave the advantage of<br />

understanding the unique issues facing each community.<br />

Forthe past 15 years Ihaverepresentedresidents as both<br />

arural and town councillor, with seven years as Chair of<br />

the FinanceCommittee and three years as DeputyMayor.<br />

collaboratively, beagile. Customer is king, serve them<br />

well and listen to their needs.<br />

Ihave been asked, what isthe role of Mayor. For meit<br />

has been equalparts –Chairman of the Board, Advocate<br />

forthe Communityand Cheerleader forthis outstanding<br />

districtand the people.<br />

In the absence ofanEconomic Development team, for<br />

much of the term, Ihave assumed parts of that role. It<br />

has provided me agreater exposure tobusiness and<br />

particularly those looking to make <strong>Ashburton</strong> District<br />

their new home –happytosharethe message, this is the<br />

district ofopportunity.<br />

Arecentsurveystatedthatthe <strong>Ashburton</strong>District, is the<br />

6th best placetodobusiness and 12th best placetolive<br />

inNZ. We areworking to improve those rankings –Opuke<br />

Hot Pools and The Southern Parallel Sports Campus<br />

are two examples of improving “better place tolive”<br />

while providing additional employment opportunities.<br />

In my time as acouncillor, committee chairman and<br />

DeputyMayor,Ihaveoverseen some very large projects,<br />

always ensuring a watchful eye on using ratepayers’<br />

money wisely. Council has some big projects ahead<br />

and we need asteady hand to ensure common sense<br />

prevails over our spending. We can afford toenhance<br />

our communityfacilities in afinancially prudentway and<br />

keep the rates affordable.<br />

Iamcampaigning on the basis of “Uniting Town and<br />

Country”. We are at heart a rural community, with<br />

prospering towns throughout <strong>Ashburton</strong> District that<br />

benefit from thebuoyancyofthe agricultural sector. It is<br />

important that our rural and urban residents appreciate<br />

the fact that weeach have apart toplay inmaking<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong>Districttruly one of the best places to live.<br />

I want to help bridge the gap in understanding<br />

between urban and rural residents over the care ofthe<br />

environment and the state of the rivers. <strong>Ashburton</strong> can<br />

While announcements of Allenton School, <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

Intermediate and College refurbishments, new Library<br />

and Civic Centre, upgraded Rakaia Reserve,business case<br />

funding for <strong>Ashburton</strong> Second Bridge, CBD Upgrades<br />

also add to that. My desire for the <strong>Ashburton</strong> District<br />

Council, istoberecognised as an enabler. If we can just<br />

get of their way, the peopleofthis district have the ability<br />

to achieve greatness.<br />

I have worked tirelessly and am proud of many<br />

achievements in my firsttermasMayor,but let me share<br />

just four (1) Ihave led Council to progress several long<br />

term projects (2) We have done so collaboratively and<br />

mainly with little contention (3) Consultation has been<br />

well prepared,and yetwehave still been open to change<br />

(4) <strong>Ashburton</strong> has made National Headlines for the right<br />

reasons.<br />

Iamrunning for Mayor so <strong>Ashburton</strong> District will have<br />

the most consistent, stable and positive leader it needs<br />

for its future as Ihave the most council experience ofall<br />

the candidates. Idolisten to the public and take action<br />

when necessary; after hearing the public’s view about<br />

the East Street fountain moving, Isuccessfully had this<br />

decision overturned and the fountain will stay where<br />

it is. With meas your Mayor, you can be confident that<br />

They must listen, mediate and interpret. These skills are<br />

also important toamayor, who takes everyone’s views<br />

into account while retaining along term vision for the<br />

district. My clients have come from all walks of life and<br />

resided throughout the whole district, givingmeagood<br />

Ienjoy giving back to the community and Lianne and I<br />

have worked on many projects with schools, churches<br />

and other community groups.<br />

Governance roles with <strong>Ashburton</strong> College, Tinwald<br />

new Lodge have been ReservesBoardhighlights.<br />

Much is said about central governmentrestrictions,but to<br />

of NZLTA in 2018 gives methe confidence tolead this<br />

District.<br />

My Policies: The Lake Hood Cycle Track. Let’s create a<br />

landscaped sealed track. Council should invest more<br />

around the lake, tocomplete all projects. The Lake gets<br />

230,000 visitors ayear.It is ajewel in our crown.<br />

The Town Centre Redevelopment and upgrade of our<br />

CBD isunder way. Council must work with landowners/<br />

developers to incentivise redevelopment. Council has a<br />

responsibilitytoensurewehave avibrant CBD<br />

I support a 4 lane Highway from <strong>Ashburton</strong> to<br />

Iamkeen to see the proposed traffic lights in Tinwald<br />

brought toapositive conclusion. The process has been<br />

toolong.<br />

The <strong>Ashburton</strong> Business Park is asuccessful project. We<br />

need to work with NZ Rail to shiftthe “shunting yards” to<br />

the Park. Ifneeded, create and promote anInland Port<br />

we can make it even better. This vibrantcommunityisfull<br />

Iamstanding for mayor because Iamastrong leader<br />

thinking and adetermination to utilise the strengths of<br />

all councillors and communityleaders<br />

As mayor, Iwould strive tostrengthen infrastructure<br />

and encourage economic growth, unite the district by<br />

bridging the rural/urban divide, and focus on community<br />

well-being. Iwould not come with agendas or affiliations,<br />

but would bring common-sense and acommitment to<br />

If elected, my priorities will be the core business of<br />

council -providing infrastructure services. Roading,<br />

footpaths and traffic management, andalso ensuring<br />

aqualityrobust watersupply forthe futureare vitally<br />

important. Of course we need to ensure the CBD<br />

Falloon<br />

It’s important the<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> District continues<br />

to grow and<br />

prosper. That requires<br />

a Council showing<br />

responsible leadership<br />

and someone around<br />

the Council table to ask<br />

thehardquestions.<br />

For over 40years Ihave run asuccessful accounting<br />

business employing people in our town, helping<br />

local businesses and community groups succeed. I<br />

have extensive governance and financial experience<br />

serving on the board ofIHC, one of New Zealand’s<br />

largest charities, and held national roles with the<br />

InstituteofCharteredAccountants.<br />

As your local Councillor,I’ll focus on: Keeping alid on<br />

rates; everydecision Council makes comes with acost<br />

straight from your pocket. Council has an obligation<br />

to spend your money wisely. Quality infrastructure;<br />

ensuring wise investmentinthe critical infrastructure<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong>needs. Responsible governance; focussing<br />

on big issues rather than nonsensical discussions like<br />

shifting the water feature.<br />

than see another Council funded blow-out.Ihavethe<br />

As part of <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

community, with<br />

higher rates and more<br />

Issues on closing I-site,<br />

moving water feature,<br />

complaints about tidiness of the town, path and<br />

road maintenance, plan to move bowling green, and<br />

manydecisions thathavenot been properly thought<br />

There isaneed for tangible change in council where<br />

robust discussions and inputs from public should take<br />

place before debating, discussing and deciding.This<br />

process can happen in aharmonious and positive<br />

way.<br />

Selwyn Richard<br />

Price<br />

I am a sitting councilor<br />

seeking re-election. My<br />

reputation is for hard-work<br />

in the community, and<br />

being well-prepared for<br />

meetings.<br />

As Deputy Chair of<br />

the Service Delivery<br />

committee, I believe my<br />

detailed knowledge in this area will be invaluable to<br />

council going forward.<br />

Iamknown as someone “who gets the bigger pictureand<br />

who’s not afraid to stand up and be counted –for all the<br />

right reasons.” For example, Ispoke out over the decision<br />

to not grant access to the St John’s ambulance service,<br />

which wassubsequently revoked.<br />

Istrongly advocate forcouncil to listentothe community.<br />

I meet the community face-to-face and communicate<br />

online, attending four hundred events annually, and<br />

posting daily on my Facebook page.<br />

Voterdecisions in this year’s election arecrucial.<strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

Ward has seen their rates goupyear-on-year at ahigher<br />

percentage than elsewhere. It is vital voters consider who<br />

will best representtheirviewsaround the council table.<br />

Ihave astrong social conscience and integrity, and vote<br />

according to clear principles and shared values.<br />

Having promoted the Four Wellbeings approach to<br />

decision making, Iamuniquely placed to help guide our<br />

communityinto this new phase of local government.<br />

terms onthe <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

My thoughts are:<br />

1. Ihavelearned alot over<br />

the hospitality industry,<br />

its strengths,weaknesses,and threats.<br />

2. Iappreciate the role thatthe Trust plays within Mid<br />

Canterbury, and am committed to moving the Trust<br />

forward, in order thatitcan supportour community.<br />

3. The close ties that the Trust has with the Lion<br />

Foundation is critical to our Community Trust model<br />

moving forward. By having aLocal Grants Committee,<br />

we have avehicle to distributewithin our community<br />

$1.2 to $1.5 million per annum.<br />

4. Ihave astrong desire tosee the process of change<br />

be completed by the Trust’s incorporation into a<br />

Community Trust, and the associated solidifying of<br />

our investment policies and granting policies. That<br />

will create aCommunity Trust that has a100 year<br />

Survey paints a<br />

positive picture<br />

The 20<strong>19</strong> YMCA<br />

South &Mid<br />

Canterbury Youth<br />

Survey once again<br />

paints amostly<br />

positive picture and<br />

its results are largely<br />

consistent with<br />

previous surveys.<br />

Some 370 young<br />

people, aged 12­24<br />

years, from the<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong>,<br />

Mackenzie, Timaru<br />

and Waimate districts<br />

completed the 20<strong>19</strong><br />

online survey, the<br />

fourth<br />

comprehensive<br />

survey of its kind by<br />

YMCA.<br />

YMCA marketing,<br />

communicationsand<br />

fundraising manager<br />

Michele Keggenhoff<br />

said one notable<br />

difference in the<br />

latest surveyresults<br />

was who young<br />

people say they would<br />

turn to for help and<br />

support during a<br />

difficult time.<br />

Though they still<br />

would predominantly<br />

turn to family/<br />

whanau,that<br />

percentagehas<br />

dropped to 66% from<br />

82% in 2017.<br />

Willingness to seek<br />

support from school<br />

(27%), online<br />

resources (17%) and<br />

telephone helplines<br />

(14%) have all<br />

increased over prior<br />

survey levels.<br />

Mental health,<br />

depression and stress<br />

(64%) was citedas<br />

the biggest health<br />

issue foryoung<br />

people, overtaking<br />

alcohol (56%) for the<br />

first time.<br />

Youngpeople also<br />

indicated deep<br />

concern over the<br />

environment,naming<br />

climate change, water<br />

quality and plastics as<br />

their top<br />

environmental issues,<br />

said Michele<br />

Keggenhoff.<br />

Social media usage<br />

also was highlighted<br />

in the survey results,<br />

with Instagram(68%)<br />

and Messenger (59%)<br />

surpassing Facebook<br />

(57%) as the most used<br />

social media among<br />

young people.<br />

Some 21% of those<br />

taking the survey<br />

reported they spend<br />

more than eight hours<br />

each day using social<br />

media or streaming<br />

content from the<br />

internet.<br />

Well over halfof<br />

survey respondents<br />

(58%) would consider<br />

a‘‘digital detox’’ in<br />

order to reduce stress<br />

and focus on real world<br />

social interaction.<br />

YMCA undertakes<br />

the biennial survey as a<br />

public service and<br />

advocacy project aimed<br />

at taking thepulse of<br />

the district’s youth on a<br />

range of topics.<br />

The 42­question<br />

survey focused on<br />

attitudestowards the<br />

four districts,<br />

participation in various<br />

activities, education<br />

and career plans, and<br />

well­being.<br />

The survey is fully<br />

independent and<br />

receives no funding.<br />

Local GPs will give<br />

clinic and will offer<br />

15­minute appointments<br />

to those booked<br />

in.<br />

Around 50 checks<br />

all patients must be<br />

GP.<br />

Bookings will go live<br />

be made on the skincan­<br />

.org.nz website, following<br />

a short patient survey.<br />

SkinCan NZ was<br />

started by Christchurch<br />

real estate agent Leeann<br />

Marriott, whose brother’s<br />

deadly skin cancer<br />

was discovered late and<br />

took his lifejust26weeks<br />

after he was diagnosed.<br />

Visiting <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

recently to co­ordinate<br />

the free skin check clinic<br />

here with Mandy Casey<br />

from Mid Canterbury<br />

Cancer Society, Mrs<br />

Marriott said SkinCan<br />

NZ was now in its third<br />

year and was set upto<br />

promote skin cancer<br />

awareness and tomake<br />

skinchecks moreaccessible<br />

for more people.<br />

‘‘In our first year we<br />

had 165 skin checks and<br />

in our second year 265.<br />

‘‘Now in our third<br />

year, we are expanding<br />

from Christchurch and<br />

into <strong>Ashburton</strong> and<br />

Lower Hutt.’’<br />

Mrs Marriott says<br />

New Zealand has one of<br />

the highest rates of<br />

melanoma inthe world.<br />

The public health system<br />

did not fund skincancer<br />

screenings and<br />

not everyone could<br />

afford to see adermatologist,<br />

oreven aGP.<br />

The first point of call<br />

for anyone with concerns<br />

about moles or<br />

lesions was their GP,<br />

who would assess moles<br />

and then remove at­risk<br />

moles or refer patients<br />

on.<br />

Mrs Marriott said the<br />

clinic in <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

would offer checks only<br />

and no treatment.<br />

Patients would<br />

receive a copy of the<br />

notes from the assessment<br />

and acopy would<br />

be forwarded ontotheir<br />

GP.<br />

Nearly time to lodge vote<br />

It’s an unfortunate aspect<br />

of our democracy that<br />

local body elections are<br />

too often regarded as the<br />

“other elections.”<br />

The numbers are stark.<br />

While General Election<br />

turnout hovers around<br />

the 80 per cent mark, in<br />

local elections it’s amiserable<br />

42 per cent. Here<br />

in <strong>Ashburton</strong> the numbers<br />

are bit better at 53<br />

per cent, but that’s still<br />

nearly half of eligible<br />

voters not having their<br />

say.<br />

On one hand I can<br />

understand. A big criticism<br />

of local elections is<br />

that it’s often not easy to<br />

tell what people stand<br />

for. We don’t, for<br />

example, have political<br />

parties contesting local<br />

body elections in most<br />

parts of the country.<br />

I’ve never been afan of<br />

political parties contesting<br />

local elections.<br />

It’s why Iwon’t be supporting<br />

or endorsing any<br />

candidate for election<br />

locally. As your local MP<br />

I’ll work constructively<br />

with the elected Mayor<br />

Untangling our beliefs and idols<br />

Spring is under way. The<br />

air is warm and as Ilook<br />

out my window there are<br />

blossoms on the plum trees<br />

and bees busy working<br />

among them. All this made<br />

it very pleasant as Ipruned<br />

some gooseberries andcurrant<br />

bushes. I know, I<br />

know, they should have<br />

been pruned earlier. However,<br />

they were aneglected<br />

and tangled mess and better<br />

to attend to them late<br />

than not at all. Left alone<br />

they would have only got<br />

worse and crowded each<br />

other out with poor results<br />

come harvest.<br />

It reminded me of the<br />

time Jesus spoke of pruning.<br />

He often used farming<br />

or gardening illustrations.<br />

This is not surprising<br />

because he lived in an<br />

Rangitata MP Andrew Falloon<br />

and Council, whoever<br />

that might be. It won’t<br />

mean that we’ll agree on<br />

everything, but for a<br />

region like ours it’s<br />

important that the local<br />

MP and Council work<br />

together as closely as<br />

possible.<br />

One of the other difficulties<br />

in local elections<br />

is the different voting<br />

systems. While we use<br />

MMP at General Elections,<br />

local body elections<br />

are a mix of the<br />

traditional First Past the<br />

Christian comment<br />

agrarian economy. Mind<br />

you, we are highly dependent<br />

on farming here in<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> District too –<br />

even if it is not always<br />

obvious to us. The illustration<br />

still stands today. Jesus<br />

speaks of his people as<br />

being vines and God as the<br />

pruner.<br />

The reason God prunes<br />

his vines is so that they will<br />

produce much fruit. Pruning<br />

cuts away what is not<br />

wanted. It shapes the vine<br />

and helps produce abetter<br />

harvest. The Gardenerisat<br />

work in His garden to<br />

produce the results He<br />

wants.<br />

As I reflected on this,<br />

the thought occurred to me<br />

Post and Single Transferable<br />

Vote systems.<br />

In <strong>Ashburton</strong> the<br />

Council elections are<br />

pretty straightforward.<br />

For Mayor you have<br />

one vote for your preferred<br />

candidate.<br />

In the <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

Ward (which now<br />

includes Lake Hood)<br />

there are nine<br />

candidates and you can<br />

tick up to five.<br />

In the Eastern and<br />

Western Wards there<br />

are four candidates and<br />

three candidates respectively,<br />

and you can vote<br />

for up to two of them.<br />

The <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

Licensing Trust runs<br />

under the same rules.<br />

There’s nine candidates,<br />

and you can tick up to six<br />

of them.<br />

Although some<br />

Regional Councils operate<br />

under different electoral<br />

systems, here in<br />

Canterbury we have the<br />

First Past the Post system,<br />

which is the same as<br />

“How often do we get this<br />

back to front?” God’s purpose<br />

is to shape us for His<br />

purposes. We, on the other<br />

hand, are prone to wanting<br />

to shape God to suit our<br />

desires or purposes. We<br />

hear comments such as “I<br />

like to think ofGod as …”<br />

or “But God would/<br />

wouldn’t do this or that”.<br />

This is always the inclination<br />

of the human heart<br />

–tomake agod suitable<br />

for our wants. Once we<br />

have such agod, suitably<br />

adjusted to our longingswe<br />

worship it. Our hearts are<br />

idol factories and surprisingly<br />

efficient in their work.<br />

Highly automated, they<br />

produce our idols with little<br />

for the District Council.<br />

There’s four candidates in<br />

the Mid Canterbury/Opakihi<br />

region (which includes<br />

Selwyn District) and you<br />

can vote for up to two.<br />

District Health Board<br />

elections are quite different,<br />

operating under the<br />

Single Transferable Vote<br />

method. You rank the<br />

person you most want on<br />

the DHB with number 1,<br />

the person you like second<br />

with number 2, and so on.<br />

You don’t have to rank<br />

all of the 23 candidates,<br />

but if you don’t, you are<br />

diminishing the value of<br />

your vote. If it comes down<br />

to a choice between two<br />

candidates for the final<br />

position, your preference<br />

is taken into account in<br />

working out who is elected<br />

between them. If you only<br />

rank the top 3 then you<br />

don’t get asay. The top 7<br />

candidates are elected.<br />

Voting papers will arrive<br />

in the next few days. Please<br />

take the opportunity to<br />

have your say.<br />

effort. Not for us, idols of<br />

wood or stone. We worship<br />

ourselves, our independence,<br />

our freedom to<br />

choose whatever we consent<br />

to. Then, with religious<br />

fervour, we are outraged<br />

should anyone make<br />

negative comments about<br />

our idols.<br />

My gooseberries were a<br />

tangled mess. Despitetheir<br />

prickly resistance to being<br />

pruned, they are now better<br />

for it. We too, are better<br />

being pruned by God. Consider<br />

this –are you willing<br />

to be shaped by God to<br />

fulfil His purposes, or are<br />

you trying to shape God to<br />

fulfil your purposes?<br />

The very desirable Mazda MX5<br />

By Ross Kiddie<br />

Ihad to look along way<br />

back in my diary to work<br />

out when Ilast drove a<br />

manual evaluation car. It<br />

was October last year and<br />

it wasn’t actually acar, it<br />

was aute.<br />

However, I was surprised<br />

and delighted to<br />

pick up the latest specification<br />

Mazda’s MX­5<br />

two­seat convertible, it<br />

was a six­speed manual<br />

and is the subject of this<br />

evaluation. It was also my<br />

favourite of the series,<br />

the RF Limited with its<br />

retractable hard­top.<br />

The MX­5 needs no<br />

introduction. It has led<br />

the way in affordable<br />

performance models and<br />

brings asmile to the face<br />

of all who drive it.<br />

There are three<br />

models in the MX­5<br />

range, the entry­level<br />

roadster soft­top which<br />

gets a1.5­litre engine and<br />

starts at $41,895, and<br />

there are two 2­litre<br />

models, one is asoft­top<br />

at $49,<strong>19</strong>5, the other is<br />

the RF Limited, and at<br />

$53,745 it would most<br />

certainly be my choice if I<br />

was in the convertible<br />

market.<br />

It’s fair to say, I’m not<br />

a huge convertible fan,<br />

Christchurch’s weather<br />

isn’t perfect for open top<br />

driving, but the folding<br />

hard­top is awork of art,<br />

the car looks stunning,<br />

the convertible process is<br />

quick, the mechanism is<br />

brilliant, and when you<br />

are driving with the roof<br />

closed over you’d think<br />

for all money that it was<br />

permanently sealed.<br />

I’m not exaggerating<br />

when Irefer to the MX­5<br />

as being genius. It is<br />

adorably desirable, and is<br />

probably the most<br />

amount of fun you can<br />

get for the money. What<br />

makes it so special is the<br />

engineering layout, it is<br />

rear­wheel­drive, and<br />

with its low ride height<br />

and near perfect 50:50<br />

weight split there is a<br />

fully involving driving<br />

feel.<br />

The MX­5 is aresult of<br />

continual development,<br />

and in 2­litre form it has<br />

just had asafety specification<br />

upgrade, it also<br />

gets more power –upto<br />

135kW from 118kW and<br />

more torque at 205Nm,<br />

up from 200Nm. Perhaps<br />

what makes the engine<br />

even more exciting is that<br />

it is now calibrated to rev<br />

more freely, the point of<br />

maximum revolutions has<br />

been raised to 7000rpm<br />

from 6000rpm, and it will<br />

explore the entire rev<br />

band willingly.<br />

As aconsequence, the<br />

engine is constantly eager<br />

– in all gears – it is<br />

throttle sensitive and an<br />

absolute joy to be behind<br />

the wheel of.<br />

In terms of performance,<br />

the 2­litre MX­5<br />

will launch to 100km/h<br />

from a standstill in<br />

around 6sec, and will<br />

move through an overtaking<br />

opportunity in<br />

4.5sec (80­120km/h).<br />

While these figures<br />

aren’t electrifying, they<br />

are the foundation of an<br />

exciting package, the way<br />

the mechanicals combine<br />

to provide the feel­good<br />

factor makes you think<br />

that speed is greater and,<br />

of course, sitting so low to<br />

the ground the feeling of<br />

speed is constant.<br />

It must be considered<br />

as well that in the manual<br />

gearbox model the feel<br />

through the shift mechanism<br />

is exciting in itself,<br />

the lever has short throws<br />

both up and down and<br />

through the gate, it feels<br />

delightful and is one of<br />

the reasons Ilike manual<br />

gearboxes so much,<br />

the feeling of involvement<br />

is constant. If the<br />

thought of using aclutch<br />

is scary, the pedal on the<br />

MX­5 is delicate with<br />

perfect feel, the thought<br />

of stall need not be<br />

considered.<br />

The wee MX­5 has<br />

extraordinary handling,<br />

it steers with absolute<br />

precision and is entertaining<br />

through the rear<br />

when power is applied<br />

forcibly. It has been<br />

designed so that oversteer<br />

is easily accessible,<br />

Smallbone in ACL deal<br />

Canterbury automotive<br />

group Smallbone Ltd has<br />

agreed to a conditional<br />

agreement with <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

Contracting Ltd (ACL).<br />

Under the proposal,<br />

ACL will acquire the service<br />

and parts divisions of<br />

Smallbone Ltd’s Isuzu<br />

trucks business in both<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> and Timaru,<br />

with Smallbone remaining<br />

the franchise holder for<br />

Isuzu trucks inboth Mid<br />

and South Canterbury.<br />

ACL is whollyowned by<br />

the <strong>Ashburton</strong> District<br />

Council.<br />

It is anticipated that the<br />

newly combined business<br />

will initially operate from<br />

ACL’s and Smallbone’s<br />

existing <strong>Ashburton</strong> premises<br />

but will later move to 1<br />

Range St, where new and<br />

existing equipment from<br />

both businesses will be<br />

installed.<br />

It is proposed that all<br />

staff from both businesses<br />

will be combined at the<br />

new Range St facility.<br />

Smallbone’s Timaru parts<br />

and service operation will<br />

continue tooperate from<br />

its existing site.<br />

Once the new Range St<br />

facility is operational,<br />

Smallbone’s truck parts<br />

and servicing division will<br />

be exclusively provided by<br />

ACL in both <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

and Timaru. All Smallbone<br />

service and parts staff will<br />

be employed byACL and<br />

will retain their jobs.<br />

Smallbone’s retail sales<br />

of new and used Isuzu<br />

trucks will continue to<br />

operate from their existing<br />

premises in both <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

and Timaru, however<br />

future plans for consolidating<br />

these services within<br />

the vehicle dealerships is<br />

also being considered.<br />

Craig Carr, chairman of<br />

Smallbone, said the agreement<br />

with ACL was intended<br />

to ensure the company<br />

could continue to provide<br />

“best in class” service and<br />

parts to meet the needs of<br />

its customers now and in<br />

the future.<br />

“Customers benefit<br />

from the strengths and<br />

offerings that each business<br />

brings to the table and<br />

our staff can expand their<br />

development opportunities<br />

by being exposed to new<br />

perspectives and expertise,”<br />

hesays.<br />

“In addition, by collaborating<br />

with a likeminded<br />

partner, we are<br />

able tooffer services and<br />

solutions that help our<br />

customers and other businesses<br />

become more successful.”<br />

Gary Casey, CEO of<br />

ACL, says combining the<br />

two businesses will achieve<br />

better scale and service<br />

improvements.<br />

“We’ll be investing in<br />

the development and training<br />

of existing and new<br />

staff and we are looking<br />

forward to operating from<br />

anew and modern facility,<br />

which will provide abetter<br />

offering to our combined<br />

customers and staff. We<br />

are pleased and excited<br />

about the opportunity to<br />

be partnering with Smallbone,”<br />

he says.<br />

About Smallbone<br />

Smallbone isone of the<br />

oldest vehicle dealerships<br />

in New Zealand and has<br />

just celebrated100 years in<br />

business. In 2012, Smallbone<br />

Bros. Ltd formed a<br />

joint venture with Carrfields.<br />

The organisation isnow<br />

About ACL<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> Contracting<br />

Limited (ACL) commenced<br />

operations in<br />

<strong>19</strong>95. The company now<br />

has aworkforce in excess<br />

of 130 staff and has proved<br />

resilient inadynamic and<br />

challenging market<br />

through performance and<br />

quality. ACL is based in<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> and also has a<br />

branch inRolleston.<br />

however, the electronic<br />

traction control system<br />

intervenes, although it is<br />

not overly invasive, the<br />

fun factor is still available.<br />

Of course, TCS can<br />

be switched off, but even<br />

with it activated the MX­<br />

5 is still the handling<br />

champion, it is entertaining<br />

and that is what has<br />

always aroused buyers.<br />

It wouldn’t be fair if I<br />

closed this evaluation<br />

without mentioning fuel<br />

use. While the MX­5 is<br />

largely seen as a model<br />

which entices throttle<br />

use, it still has respectable<br />

fuel use statistics,<br />

with a combined cycle<br />

claim by Mazda of<br />

6.9­litres per 100km<br />

(41mpg).<br />

My time in the test car<br />

returned figures of a<br />

respectable 8l/100km<br />

(35mpg), which was good<br />

considering I constantly<br />

applied heavy throttle<br />

pressure. At 100km/h the<br />

engine is turning over at a<br />

steady 2500rpm, providing<br />

an instantaneous<br />

figure of 5.1l/100km<br />

(55mpg).<br />

As much as Idelighted<br />

in the RF Limited and all<br />

it represents, I’m still<br />

fingers crossed that we<br />

Farmers, civic leaders, speak out<br />

By Toni Williams<br />

There were no shortage<br />

of questions ­orconcerns<br />

­raised from the floor of<br />

the packed meeting in<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> to consider<br />

the Government’s<br />

Essential Freshwater<br />

proposal.<br />

Among them acall for<br />

backing up of the science<br />

behind the decisions in<br />

the Essential Freshwater<br />

proposal, and many<br />

calling on the<br />

Government to increase<br />

the bottom line figure,<br />

considered unrealistic.<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> mayor<br />

Donna Favel kicked off<br />

question time with<br />

council’s concern over<br />

the time available before<br />

submissions closed, given<br />

the running of local<br />

government elections.<br />

She said the short<br />

turnaround period would<br />

limit the council’s chance<br />

to advocate for the<br />

district.<br />

Ministry for the<br />

Environment’s (MFE)<br />

Amanda Moran said it<br />

was acommon issue<br />

raised but the<br />

Government were ‘‘keen<br />

to move forward with<br />

this, before and after the<br />

(local body) elections.’’<br />

‘‘It is asubmission on a<br />

discussion process,’’ she<br />

said.<br />

Waimate District<br />

Council’s Tom O’Connor<br />

said farmers were already<br />

dealing with other<br />

technical regulations<br />

such as Environment<br />

Canterbury’s Plan<br />

Change 7and wanted to<br />

know how all the<br />

regulations would mesh<br />

together.<br />

He was assured they<br />

would, with proposals<br />

sent for analysis for the<br />

Minister to consider over<br />

summer and come into<br />

effect mid next year.<br />

Donna Favel Neil Brown Ian Mackenzie Rebecca Whillans<br />

Mel Brooks<br />

‘‘From here regional<br />

councils will need to<br />

decide where they are at<br />

with their own plans,<br />

where there are gaps to<br />

comply with the national<br />

process.<br />

‘‘Then they will have<br />

five years to comply and<br />

fill those gaps.’’<br />

Arable farmer Ian<br />

Mackenzie, of Eiffelton,<br />

❛What you’re actually proposing, it’s not innovation or<br />

tweaking of agriculture, it’s actually closing down any type<br />

of industry in this district.❜<br />

in Mid Canterbury, said<br />

some of the information<br />

was misleading because if<br />

the proposal was taken as<br />

written, the level of one<br />

milligram of nitrogen<br />

would need to be taken<br />

into effect immediately.<br />

‘‘Our issue with that is<br />

one milligram of<br />

dissolving inorganic<br />

nitrogen actually isn’t<br />

something we can aspire<br />

to because it puts us all<br />

out of business. We can<br />

aspire to 6.9, and<br />

certainly for the Hinds<br />

plains it’s adifficult<br />

target, but we know we<br />

can’t ever get to one.’’<br />

‘‘What you’re actually<br />

proposing, it’s not<br />

innovation or tweaking of<br />

agriculture, it’s actually<br />

closing down any type of<br />

industry in this district.’’<br />

Mr Mackenzie wanted<br />

to know how robust the<br />

discussion was on the<br />

science.<br />

Ministry for the<br />

—Ian Mackenzie<br />

Environment’s Martin<br />

Workman said among<br />

those in the group was a<br />

NIWA scientist saying<br />

that one milligram per<br />

litre was ‘‘the bottom line<br />

that we should be moving<br />

towards’’.<br />

It was abottom line for<br />

councils and their<br />

communities to work<br />

towards, and how long<br />

that would take, it was<br />

not expected straight<br />

away, Mr Workman said.<br />

Freshwater leaders<br />

group member Hugh<br />

Logan said the one<br />

milligram target was the<br />

level needed for aquatic<br />

health.<br />

Farmer and mayoral<br />

candidate Neil Brown<br />

questioned the levels of<br />

the Mid Canterbury’s<br />

main rivers, and was<br />

informed the Rakaia,<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> and Rangitata<br />

rivers catchments were<br />

all under one milligram<br />

per litre level.<br />

Other countries such<br />

as Australia, America,<br />

United Kingdom, and<br />

Europe, including China,<br />

had astandard that was<br />

similar or where the<br />

figure was in the same<br />

ball park.<br />

Mr Logan said the<br />

details of reaching that<br />

target was up to<br />

government policy.<br />

Others at the meeting<br />

questioned the cost of<br />

fencing, planting and<br />

benefits of carbon credits<br />

but were shot down with<br />

comments that<br />

‘‘compensation talk was<br />

not helpful’’.<br />

However they were<br />

encouraged to include<br />

the ‘‘biodiversity benefits<br />

of planting and ecosystem<br />

services being<br />

done on farm’’ which<br />

were beneficial for wider<br />

New Zealand and needed<br />

to be considered.<br />

And others still raised<br />

the issue that the<br />

Resource Management<br />

Act (RMA) needed<br />

fixing before streamlining<br />

the system, and of the<br />

importance of economic<br />

analysis, especially for<br />

the downturn on small<br />

town like <strong>Ashburton</strong>.<br />

Ms Moran said the<br />

work going on right now<br />

was ‘‘too important to<br />

wait for RMA reform,<br />

which was why the talks<br />

were going on now’’.<br />

And economic analysis<br />

was part of the discussion<br />

however there was<br />

costings and benefits data<br />

on stock exclusion and<br />

sediment.<br />

There was more<br />

detailed work needed on<br />

nitrogen values for<br />

economic decisions.<br />

The environmental<br />

outcomes had been<br />

considered first, which<br />

would be followed by<br />

economic costs ­which<br />

would help with<br />

feasibility and timing<br />

considerations.<br />

The comment drew the<br />

ire of attendees saying<br />

the rural community was<br />

already under pressure<br />

on farm, with the<br />

potential for increased<br />

levels of suicide.<br />

But they were<br />

encouraged to ‘‘put those<br />

considerations into their<br />

submissions’’.<br />

Irrigation companies<br />

staff Mel Brooks (MHV),<br />

and Rebecca Whillans<br />

(ALIL) spoke, as did<br />

Irrigo Centre’s Eva<br />

Harris, who said constant<br />

rule changes were<br />

guaranteed to mean<br />

nothing was done, but<br />

consideration needed to<br />

be given to the social<br />

impacts ablanket<br />

approach would take.<br />

Angela Cushnie<br />

agreed that rural<br />

wellbeing and social<br />

sustainability needed to<br />

be considered to<br />

eliminate stress, anxiety<br />

and uncertainty<br />

especially in an area<br />

already impacted in that<br />

regard.<br />

Everyone agreed, the<br />

most important thing was<br />

not to lose sight of the<br />

people.<br />

Mrs Brooks<br />

questioned whether the<br />

Hinds River was even<br />

included in the process<br />

due to its legal definition<br />

and said the proposal was<br />

‘‘a little bit fluffy from an<br />

urban perspective’’ with<br />

untreated storm water<br />

and questioned what the<br />

national bottom line was<br />

on heavy metal<br />

treatments.<br />

She was assured those<br />

‘‘big issues‘‘ mostly<br />

caused by building<br />

materials and vehicles<br />

were being worked with<br />

by government, councils<br />

and New Zealand<br />

Transport Agency to find<br />

solutions.<br />

Mr Brown and fellow<br />

dairy farmer Willy<br />

Leferink also questioned<br />

the economic<br />

consequences for farmers<br />

and the district with many<br />

farming to afive year<br />

land use consent.<br />

It would be difficult to<br />

plan around strict rules<br />

especially with cautious<br />

financial lenders.<br />

‘‘You can only be<br />

environmentally friendly<br />

if in the black,’’ Mr<br />

Leferink said.<br />

Those leading the<br />

meeting said banks also<br />

had akey role to play on<br />

how they were going to<br />

support people through<br />

the changes.<br />

Federated Farmers<br />

environment spokesman,<br />

Chris Allen, of Five<br />

Forks, in Mid<br />

Canterbury, said it was a<br />

heartfelt issue that<br />

warranted some ‘‘solid<br />

submissions’’ and<br />

questioned how set in<br />

stone was the bottom<br />

line.<br />

Submissions on the<br />

proposal officially close<br />

on October 17, at 5pm,<br />

but due to overwhelming<br />

demand, late submissions<br />

will be accepted up until<br />

October 31.<br />
