Caterpillar migration

By ROBYN BRISTOW

and MARK PRICE

Truckloads of New Zealand’s

agriculturalhistory wound its

way out of asecret locationnear

Waiau, North Canterbury, last

weekend.

The 20 trucks in the Wanakabound

convoywere loaded with

vintageheavy machinery, the

productofthe world’s biggest

constructionequipment

manufacturer, Caterpillar.

They are destined for display

at the Wheels at Wanaka show.

Ben Gough and Gina

Satterthwaite had held the

collection forsix years.

‘‘The intention has always been

to keep the collectiontogether,’’

Gina says.

‘‘That is why Ben and I

purchased it from Lindsey Willis

in Rotorua.

‘‘The collection is uniquely

Kiwi and reflects the

contribution the Caterpillar

brand and the Gough Group have

made to the development of New

Zealandinfrastructure and

farming.

‘‘We’redelighted apiece of our

family legacy willbepreserved.’’

The Gough Group has been

buying and servicing Caterpillar

equipment since1932. It is the

oldest dealershipoutside of the

United States,and thesecondoldest

in the world.

Gina says every significantcivil

constructionprojectover many

decadeshas usedCaterpillar

machinery and it has helped

shape the South Island.

Those who operated and

preserved it recognised an

important part of New Zealand’s

history.

The collection of 35 machines,

between60and 90 years old,have

been in storagefor around six

years while their future was

contemplated.

Gina had considered opening a

museumherself, but in the end

decided Wheels at Wanaka was

alreadyset up, and it was

somewherewhere the

equipment wouldbelooked after

and enjoyed. ‘‘We wanted to

share them and not hidethem

away in ashed. They should be

enjoyed,’’ she says.

Wanakacollector and Wheelsat

Wanaka show generalmanager

Allan Dippie, who acquired the

machines, sent trucks north over

the weekendtocollect them.

They are now safely in Wanaka

where he plans to have them all

in workingorder for his next

show duringEaster 2021.

Some are in good condition

and were running, while others

neededliftingontothe

transporters.

Among them is one of the only

two remaining Russell graders in

the world, and arare Speeder

Caterpillar collection heads south

From Page 1

‘‘We’re trying to showcase the

history of Caterpillar in New

Zealand and the tremendous

things that were achieved

with Caterpillars both on

farms and on the big projects

that happened to make the

country what it is,’’ Mr Dippie

says.

Some of the machines have

been restored to as­new

condition, but Mr Dippie said

others would be left with

their dents and scratches.

‘‘If you find agood original

machine, the thought

nowadays is to leave it like

that because there’s alot of

history you see in that

machine —all the scrapes it’s

had.

‘‘Some of them got into

terrible predicaments —they

were pretty fearless some of

those early guys.’’

Lindsay Willis, aforestry

contractor and the man

responsible for the

collection, started saving as

much as he could after

becoming concerned vintage

equipment was being

scrapped.

He began restoring aCat 22

and overtime amassed alarge

collection of vintage Cat

machinery which he housed

in a1500 square metre

building in Rotorua. It was

officially endorsed by

Caterpillar Incorporated and

Goughs NZ.

The New Zealand

Caterpillar Experience

museum was officially

opened in Rotorua in 2006 by

Mr Willis. The collection was

later bought by the Goughs.

Tributes flow for outgoing mayor

By DAVID HILL

David Ayershas beenhailed as

‘‘a gentle, logical voice’’ who

led Waimakariri’s earthquake

recovery.

Tributes flowed at the

Waimakaririmayor’s farewell

function at the Rangiora RSA

on Friday, with special

mentiongivenfor the support

of his wife,Marilyn.

Mr Ayers will retireon

October12, after 36 years in

local government, including

the last nineasmayor, leading

the Waimakariri district it its

recovery fromthe 2010 and

2011 earthquakes.

Minister for Greater

Christchurch Regeneration, Dr

Megan Woods, said the

enormity of the challengeof

stepping up as mayor just a

month after theSeptember

2010 earthquake ‘‘must have

been overwhelming’’.

She praised Mr Ayers’

leadership in preparing the

Waimakariri Residential Red

Zone RecoveryPlan,which

provided ablueprint for

developing the AvonOtakaro

River Corridor Regeneration

Plan, whichwas signed off

recently.

She said Mrs Ayers’ lovefor

her communitywas ‘‘justas

strong’’ and ‘‘you will be

missed just as much’’.

WaimakaririMPMatt

Doocey shared some words

from former Earthquake

Recovery MinisterGerry

Brownlee.

‘‘Youled the councilwith a

considered approach, you

worked collaborativelywith

CERA (the Canterbury

Earthquake Recovery

Authority)and you always did

what was bestfor the

Waimakariri district.’’

Mr Doocey saidofMr Ayers:

‘‘Yourespected youroffice,

whileremaining

approachable.’’

Deputy Mayor Kevin

Felstead said Mr Ayers had

worked tirelessly to get the

best possible outcome for the

district after the earthquakes.

‘‘When Iwas first elected to

counciltherewas atension

between Rangiora and

Kaiapoi, but that has quickly

eroded underDavid’s

leadership, as he has been a

veryinclusive mayor.’’

Mr Ayers said he was just

one leader in ‘‘a community of

leaders’’.

‘‘Inthis context Ialways see

myself as part of amuch wider

context, with you and allthe

people out there in thewider

community.’’

He said the responsibilities

of amayor can vary daily. ‘‘I

remember being at ahighpowered

as mayorwas at ameetingin

when Waimakariri

DistrictCouncil engineer Gary

Boot announced thatsewage

was no longer being flushed

into the Kaiapoi River and the

audience cheered. ‘‘That

showedthat even though the

peoplewere doing it hard, the

river was important too.’’

Ayers reflects on 36 years of challenges

By DAVIDHILL

Outgoing Waimakariri Mayor

DavidAyers would like to see

barriersreduced to encourage

more diversityaroundcouncil

tables.

Mr Ayers, who retires on

October 12 after acareer in

localgovernment spanning36

years, says it is getting harder

for young people to serve in

localpolitics.

‘‘Thework of acouncilloris

much harder than it used to be

and it’s getting very difficult to

be acouncillor and haveajob

or run abusiness or afarm,’’

he says. ‘‘And to me that’s

the biggest barriertohaving

more diversityaroundthe

council table.

‘‘Across the whole local

governmentsector,reducing

those barriers should be seen

as something to be considered

with some urgency.’’

Mr Ayerssaidhenever

lookedonlocal government as

acareer. ‘‘Itwas something

extra Idid’’hesaid, because it

did not have high job security,

being three yearsatatime.

‘‘You can’tassume youwill be

re­elected’’.

For him, the mayoralty was

somethinghecould do when

he retired from his career as a

teacher and deputy principal.

‘‘That’s aquestionfor a

younger mayor. Do you do it

for30years, or do you suspend

your careerfor three, six, nine

or 12 years?

‘‘And do you simply go back

to your career,orcan you go

back to your career?’’

He says the community and

itspriorities havechanged

significantly over the last36

years and he has had to

change with it.

Thirty­sixyears ago climate

change wasnot talked aboutas

much ‘‘and the questionof

human impact wasn’t widely

understood’’, but it is likely to

be the dominant issue for the

incoming council.

As he geared up for his last

ordinary council meeting, Mr

Ayers said the atmosphere

around the council table had

usually beenfriendly.

‘‘There havebeen times of

tension, but certainlyinthe

lastnine years Ihaven’t found

chairing the councildifficult.

‘‘It’s been arewarding

experiencehavingavarietyof

people around the table and

sitting with people who care

about their community.’’

LastFriday, on the day of

the student­led climatestrike,

Mr Ayers said he wondered

how many of his council

colleagues had attendeda

protestordemonstration.

‘‘I have been in lots,’’ he

recalled.

Bylaw looks to tackle

nuisance properties

By RACHAEL MACDONALD

When is ashipping container useful

storage or an unwelcome eyesore? Is a

rooster awelcome or an unwelcome

addition to the street?

And how long is too long when it comes

to keeping your lawn down?

Anew bylaw being considered by the

Waimakariri District Council aims to

address untidy properties and nuisance

behaviour in communities in the

district.

Issues listed under the framework of

the proposed bylaw include unkempt

properties, hoarding, keeping

inappropriate livestock in urban areas,

and acting in away that otherwise

constitutes ageneral nuisance.

The depositing, storage, or

accumulation of waste, compost,

manure, or offal, for example, is in there,

as well as the storage or use of shipping

containers, vehicles, vehicle bodies or

parts, caravans, or motorhomes.

The proposed bylaw is the result of

changes in national legislation, says

council resource management planner

Garry Blay.

‘‘Fire hazards are no longer currently

addressed by council, which limits

opportunities to control long grass, in

terms of fire risk, in the summer. And

overgrown properties can also create a

habitat for vermin, which can be ahealth

hazard,’’ he says.

However, it is also about about

aesthetics and amenity; how people,

animals and items on properties are

interfering with the peace, comfort, or

convenience of neighbours.

‘‘We talked to council staff about the

issues we might need to consider under

abylaw like this,’’ Garry says.

‘‘We also consulted with other

councils around the country about what

they have put in place and whether there

are measures they have taken that might

work for us.’’

He says that, if passed, the bylaw will

be ratified by the council under the

powers bestowed by the Local

Government Act 2002, the Health Act

1956, and the Litter Act 1979.

It is envisioned that acomplaint under

the new bylaw would trigger a

reasonable investigation, followed by a

monitoring and enforcement response,

starting with atalk with the property

owner to develop astrategy to resolve

the issue.

If the problem remained unaddressed,

council staff might end up

going out to mitigate the situation, with

any resulting costs passed on to the

property owner.

Alast resort would be conviction

under the Local Government Act,

resulting in afine, Garry says.

The consultation process closes on

October 21, with public hearings taking

place in December. Anyone making a

submission has the opportunity to be

heard by the council’s hearing panel in

an open meeting, and can make that

request in their submission.

‘‘We want to know whether the whole

exercise is necessary or relevant to the

district, whether there are too many or

too few items on the list, and whether

they are the right ones,’’ Garry says.

The proposed bylaw can be viewed on

the council’s website at

waimakariri.govt.nz.

Water plan ‘short-sighted’

Water is aboth acritical strategic asset

and asource of recreation in New

Zealand, and we all knowitmust be

abundant, healthy, clean and costeffective.

While National encourages the

constant improvement of our waterways,

the recent proposalsfrom the

Governmentonfreshwater are shortsighted,

and destined to have perverse

effects on our primary sector and wider

economy.

These wide­ranging proposals will

limit the flexibilityofNew Zealand

farmers to adjusttomarket conditions

and change their land use,including

dairy conversions.

North Canterbury is agreat example of

flexible land use but these proposals will

impactfarmers’ ability to diversify in

future.

But this is not just afarmingissue,it’s

aNew Zealand issue and urban

ratepayers would stand to bear a

significant cost.

Iunderstand that, in Christchurch,the

cost could be in the hundreds of millions,

while in smaller centres, the costs of

Solving such issues,whichare also

Voters proving tardy

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Electors across North

Canterbury are being tardy in

returning their postal votes to

help shape their local

councils.

Voters have until noon next

Saturday, October 12, to make

their vote count.

Only 11.22 percent of voters

in the Waimakariri district

had voted as of Tuesday, well

down on the 14.34% who had

voted at this stage in the 2016

election.

In the Kaikoura district,

where there is only amayoral

election for the local council,

just 15.64% have voted,

compared to 23.40% three

years ago.

In Hurunui, there has been

abit more interest, with a

16.76% voter turnout to date,

which is down only slightly on

the total at the same time in

2016, when 17.02% had voted.

The low turnout to date is in

spite of electors being asked

to vote for anew mayor in all

three districts, where the

incumbents are standing

down.

The largest turnout to date

in the Waimakariri district is

in the Rangiora­Ashley ward

(12.57%).

In the Oxford­Ohoka ward

10.50% have voted, while

10.03% have posted their

votes in the Kaiapoi­

Woodend ward.

The new east ward of the

Hurunui district has pulled

the most returns —19.84%. In

the west ward 16.80% have

voted, while in the south ward

15.19% have returned their

voting papers.

My vision is to see the Waimakariri District as the

healthiest place to live in New Zealand with amuch greater

emphasis on our environment, waterways and updated

wastewater treatment plant at the same time encouraging

our people and economy to thrive.

Our Waimakariri Wastewater System is outdated and a

source of botulism toxin which poisons and kills large

numbers of waterfowl and wildlife everyyear.Weare well

overdue for amodern upgraded wastewater system for a

healthier environment.

Why is the storm water in the new earthworks running

into the Feldwick Drive drain? Why is it not running away

from the built up area? At the first sign of intensive flooding

this area will flood. Drainage issues must be forefront and

not running on hope.

Our environment determines our standard of the quality

of life that we experience in the outdoors today. Past

councils have mostly ignored the quality of our outdoor

experience, the rivers are polluted, toxic herbicides and

pesticides are used in most drains and streams, our

beaches are covered in a green/brown sludge in an

onshore breeze and our council does not seem to care.

Where is our outdoor experience in this district headed

today?

Community based housing for the elderly or disabled

provided by the council must be forefront as there are

many among us who cannot afford mainstream housing.

An increase in council housing stock would not be remiss.

Burglars eye rural buildings

Rural properties such as farm

outbuildings and commercial

properties in Canterbury are most at

risk of being burgled, according to

Canterbury Police.

Police say people should remember

to lock premises and vehicles at night

and put tools or equipment out of view.

Well­lit premises, security cameras

and alarms are also adeterrent.

The warning comes in spite of nonresidential

burglaries being down 15.5

percent in Canterbury in the three

months from May to July, compared to

the previous three months.

In the May­July period, there were

579 reported burglaries of nonresidential

premises.

Youngsters aim for apolished performance

By DAVID HILL

Two terms of hard work is

starting to pay off for agroup of

talented young musicians.

The Rangiora Salvation

Army’s Just Brass music

programme, aimed at children

who would otherwise miss out

on music lessons, has been

running for just two school

terms, but is already proving a

hit with families.

‘‘It’s aimed at families who

can’t afford to have music

lessons, but it’s open to any

students.

‘‘We ask the teachers if there

are any kids who would benefit

from music lessons,’’ Rangiora

Salvation Army captain

Christine De Maine says.

‘‘Research shows that

children benefit from playing

music, as it helps their

attention spans and their

learning.’’

She says 14 children at

Ashgrove and Rangiora

Borough Schools are receiving

lessons at school each week,

with aband practice every

Tuesday after school led by

Christchurch musician Barrett

Hocking.

Some of the children had

never played an instrument

before joining Just Brass.

‘‘I love it. It’s such an amazing

thing that the Salvation Army is

doing in providing free music

lessons,’’ Barrett says.

‘‘We’re now two terms into it

and Ican’t wait for the next.

‘‘We started in week one of

term two. They were given their

instruments and shown how to

hold them, and 24 hours later it

was the first band practice,’’

Barrett says.

Aconcert is held at the end of

each term, with ashared meal,

so parents, grandparents,

teachers and friends can check

on their progress.

‘‘Last term the kids were just

on ahigh after they achieved

their first concert,’’ Christine

says.

The second Rangiora Just

Brass concert was held last

Tuesday at the Rangiora

Salvation Army Hall.

The next one will be held on

December 10, with aChristmas

theme.

Zeke Stirling, aged 9, has

been learning the tuba, which

he says is played by ‘‘blowing

lots of air into it’’.

He says his friends at school

are intrigued by the tuba, and

‘‘some of them even ask how

heavy it is —it’s pretty heavy’’.

He wrote aspeech on the

importance of learning music

for aschool assignment and

presented it during Tuesday’s

concert.

‘‘I might be learning the

guitar next year.

‘‘I want to be afamous

musician and me and my

friends are going to play in a

band.’’

The Rangiora Salvation Army

provides the instruments and

funds the music lessons.

Christine says she is keen to

hear from potential sponsors to

keep the programme going.

The programme is for up to 16

children, so there are two

vacancies available.

Setting the tone ...

Mystery object ... Rangiora Museum volunteers are keen to learn what

this device was used for.

Mrs Jelfs was employed for a

holiday job peeling ginger and

taking the pips out of cherries.

‘‘We lived downstream, so

you always knew when they

were emptying the vat, because

the water would be red or

green.’’

horse fair at the former

Rangiora saleyards site, which

was situated between Victoria

The calendars are on sale for

$15 from Rangiora Museum or

Mrs Jelfs says the calendar

would make the perfect

Christmas present alongside a

booklet, Rangiora Random

The booklet is acollection of

‘‘little snippets’’ written by the

late Don Hawkins for the

museum’s newsletter.

museum volunteers scratching

their heads and they are keen

to learn more about it.

The Rangiora Museum is

open on Wednesdays and

Sundays from 1.30pm to 4pm.

Rangiora’sHartley SchoolofPerforming

Arts is celebratingthe success of its latest

theatricalproduction.

The schoolheld two performances of

OscarWilde’s The Happy Prince in the

Rangiora Town Halllast Saturday.

Both shows featured more than 100

pupils, aged 4to11, fromthe school’s

junior department.

Bothperformances werealmost full

houses.

‘‘Weare very happy with that —aroom

fullofproud and supportive parents to

cheer on our young cast of performers,’’

school founder DaleHartley said.

‘‘The show came along in leapsand

bounds, from aslightly hairy first dress

rehearsal on Wednesday, to anearperfect

saidafterthe show.

Large hailstones pepper nursery

Hail rippednets and peppered plants at

CJ’s Plant Farmonthe outskirts of

Amberley on Wednesdaylast week,

leaving someplants damaged.

The storm rolled in about 4.30pm,

delivering hail stones half the size of golf

balls. Nets tore apart or collapsed on to

plants underthe weight of the hail, which

pelted theregion for about 15 minutes

before heavy rain delivered adrenching.

CJ’s owner Jeff Elliott was assessing the

cost of the storm.

He said CJ’s retail area wasn’taffected,

but the larger wholesale side, Elliott’s

Wholesale Nursery, came under siege.

The storm had hit at one of the

nursery’s busiesttimes, and not being

able to get plants out of the wholesale

area had proved to be the biggest issue.

Also, he had to waituntil the hailhad

meltedbeforehecouldget stafftostart

cleaning up, with acold night following

the storm slowing the thaw.

Thestormhad left afew tonnes of hail,

he said. Irrigation sprinklerswere also

damaged.

‘‘Itisabit of adouble­edged sword.We

saved alot of plants because of the nets,

but somewere damaged when they

collapsed and ripped.’’

He and his wife Caroline were able to

collapse twoofthe larger nets while hail

stones rained down on them, but others

weretorn, leaving holes for the hailstones

to pierce holesinthe leavesofplants.

‘‘Wewill have to thinkabit sideways to

tryand recoversome of ourlosses. We

might havetohave awhale of ahailsale.’’

‘It has been achallenge

for all of us,’ says mayor

By DAVID HILL

Winston Gray has had his last council

meeting, as he counts down to

retirement.

The Kaikoura mayor, who will bow out

on October 12, attended Friday’s

retirement function for Waimakariri

Mayor David Ayers.

‘‘We had the last council meeting on

Wednesday (last week) and

we had afunction that night

and went out for tea.

‘‘It’s nice to be finished.

There’s still some work to

tidy up yet and reporting to

do, so I’m not really in

retirement mode yet.’’

Mr Gray says he has

enjoyed his nine years as

mayor, with the last three

years being the most

eventful.

He could not have

imagined what lay ahead

when re­elected for athird

term three years ago.

Amonth after the election Mr Gray and

his fellow councillors were at aretreat at

St Arnaud in the Nelson region when the

7.8­magnitude earthquake struck early

on November 14, 2016.

Once the heart­stopping shaking

subsided, thoughts immediately turned

to getting home.

But as they wove their way along

damaged and broken roads they soon

realised aroad trip was futile and gave

up at Rita farm, four kilometres south of

the Clarence Valley.

Eventually, ahelicopter could be

heard flying toward their convoy, which

they managed to wave down. They

Winston Gray

hitched aride back to their battered

seaside township.

‘‘It is coming up to three years since

the earthquake that struck our area and

it is hard to imagine that we are where

we are today.

‘‘A huge thanks must go out to central

government for their support to us,

which is ongoing.

‘‘Throughout our town the work is

really ramping up, with

bridges being built, water

works and sewer works

being carried out.’’

Mr Gray says the

Kaikoura council is

grateful for the support it

has received from other

councils, including

Hurunui, Waimakariri and

Christchurch.

‘‘As Inear the end of nine

years’ involvement in local

government, it is time to

reflect on what has

happened.

‘‘It has been achallenge for all of us to

get through and Ibelieve we are getting

through this process with another year

to run.

‘‘It has been difficult to minimise the

impact of the cost to our community. As

far as rates go, this has been the biggest

challenge for our council.’’

Mr Gray extended his thanks to

council staff, who he says have worked

tirelessly to meet the challenges of

earthquake recovery.

He says there is some stability around

the council table, with only himself and

Cr Celeste Harnett standing down. The

only contest in the district is for the

mayoralty.

fullyautomatic, making themalittle

easier to manoeuvre.

‘‘But just because the siren is going

and the lights are flashing, it doesn’t

meanother drivers willget out of

yourway any quicker, so you’ve got to

knowwhat you’re doing.

‘‘I learned alot out of it and I’m

keentohave another go next year

and Iencourage others fromNorth

Canterbury to enter.’’

He entered the Canterbury

earlier thisyear and enjoyed the

experience.

While he came 17th out of 21

decidetogive thenationals acrack.

‘‘I was prettygreen and Ididn’t

knowwhat to expect, but acouple of

the guys created some training

there was training at Lincoln

‘‘There’s definitelyafew tricks to

eachofthe exercises to try to be the

A‘‘summary of decisions requested’’ is

now beingpreparedbyEnvironment

for further submissions later in the year.

Following this, apublic hearing of

submissions and evidence will take place

before an independent hearing panel,

probably in the firsthalfof2020.

Proposed Plan Change 7tothe Land and

WaterRegional Plan, the last to be notified

with the EnvironmentCanterbury Act still

in place,isinthree parts.

Part Aisregion­wide and concerns

improvingfreshwater outcomes in

Canterbury, protecting habitats of

indigenousspecies, and providing for

managed aquiferrecharge, as well as

establishing anew nutrientframework for

commercial vegetable­growing operations.

PartsBand Crelate to the Orari Temuka

OpihiPareoraand Waimakariri subregions

respectively, and have been

developed by theirzone committees.

Key changes introduced by Parts Band

Cinclude new waterquality limits for

groundwater and surface water;

requirements for farms to further reduce

nitrogen losses; increases to minimum

flows for rivers and streams; acap on the

volumeofwater availablefor allocation;

and requirementstoexcludestock from a

broader range of water bodies.

Plan Change 7isnot affected by the

Government’s proposalsinthe Action Plan

for HealthyWaterways at this stage.

Mr Parrish says if the Government

reaches the stage of gazetting anew

National PolicyStatementonfreshwater

beforethe hearing panel delivers its

recommendationsonPlan Change 7, the

panel will consider the contents and

relevanceofthe new policy statement

when preparing its recommendations.

ECan says the Government’s announcement

includes actionsalreadybeingtaken

in Canterbury, such as workingwith

farmers to bring downnutrient limits.

He says Proposed Plan Change 7isa

further development of this approach, with

specific rulesinthe Waimakariri as well as

new region­wide rules. Land­use consent

to farm, FarmEnvironmentPlans (FEP)

and independentFEP auditsare already

features of Canterbury’s planning regime.

‘‘We have in placerules around stock

exclusion and winter grazing, and the

farming communityhas respondedto

these as they havebeen introduced.

Rangiora’s Susan Higgs,amusicianturned­sculptor,

Sculptureonthe Peninsula.

Susan’s workisbasedondisplaced

women of theCongo whohave been

under threat fromwarringrebels forthe

past20years.

Susan said it stemmedfrom meeting a

woman in Britain whenshe wasstudying

at Harrow Art Schoolatthe University of

Westminster who had survivedthe

Rwandangenocide.

‘‘I wassoshocked by what happened to

her and the women of hervillage that I

becameabit obsessed aboutmaking an

installation representingthesewomen,

mainlytheir constantneedtomovefrom

dangerous country,tryingtoprotect

themselves.

‘‘I can’tevenbegin to imagine how

impossibletheirlivesmust be,the

trauma they carry withthem.

‘‘I learntabout manyof the thingsthat

happenedtothemand their familiesat

the timethatIwas doing my degree in

ceramics.Iwas galvanised by their

stories.’’

Susan wasn’tinterestedinmaking

‘‘It was ariskydeparture for me at the

Help at hand for farmers

By DAVID HILL

Help is just aphone callaway

for farmers feeling the

North Canterbury Rural

pressures on farmers,

including the ongoing effects of

the Mycoplasma bovis outbreak,

and new waterquality and

environmental legislation.

‘‘There’s just afeelingthat

everybodyseems to be against

farmersand it’sall adding up.

‘‘Farmers are concerned

about what’s happening to the

environment, butthey’realso

concerned that they’renot

being listened to, so there’s a

lot of anxiety out there.

‘‘But we’re getting into

New migrant rules are

good news for farmers

By DAVID HILL

FederatedFarmers has welcomed

changes to migrantworkerrules.

The federation’s North Canterbury

dairy chairman, Karl Dean, says last

month’s announcement by Immigration

Minister Iain Lees­Galloway of threeyear

visas and renewals, following a

consultation processwhich began last

December, is ‘‘verypositive newsfor

farmers’’.

‘‘Obviously it’sgoing to take time for

the legislation to take effect, so the visas

that are being processednow will still

only be renewedfor 12 months.

‘‘But the salary limits should makeita

bit easier to retain long­term

employees.’’

Projections produced by

ChristchurchNZshow that, by 2031,

Canterbury could be short by 70,000

workers under existing scenarios and

long­term migration trends.

‘‘I rememberwhen we wentfrom threeyear

to one­year visas.Most of those

migrants employed at the time moved to

other countries where there was an

easier path to residency,’’ Mr Dean says.

‘‘We are still in askills shortage in

ruralareasand thoseworkers pay alot of

tax dollars to our country,but theycan’t

get the benefits they should be getting

unless they can get residency.’’

Mr Dean says he is going throughthe

process now to renewthe visa of one of

his workersand expects he willhave to

do it again nextyear, oncethe new

legislation is in place.

He saysthe three­year visas will allow

farmers to invest in the training of their

workers to get them to the salarylevel

‘‘Itusually takes 2 1 ⁄2 years to get to level

PrimaryITO,sowe’ve beenhavingto

renew avisa threetimesbefore they can

‘‘It can be demoralising for workers

and there’s no guarantee avisa willbe

renewed, so there’snoincentive to offer

the training.

‘‘Some workers have been herefor six

yearsand working as 2ICs, but they

haven’t completed the training, so these

new rules should improve this process

and offer an incentive for farmersto

Coast to coast ... The Rangiora Bowling Club’s women bowlers hosted players from the West Coast recently.

Bowling season opens

By DAVID HILL

The Rangiora Bowling Club

officially opened the new

bowling season recently with an

initial ‘‘roll­up’’ by retiring

mayor David Ayers.

The club has since launched

many activities, including

Saturday afternoon mixed

tournaments, monthly gettogether

dinners, and club

championships. Tuesday

mornings are being touted as

ladies’ club day.

Events have included a

weekend tournament against a

West Coast club.

It arose through club member

Sydney Mulligan’s friendship

with Cathy Richards. The pair

had met through lawn bowls in

Central Otago.

Sydney later moved to

Rangiora and Cathy to Hokitika.

Remaining in touch, Cathy

noted that there are fewer

opportunities on the West Coast

for women to play bowls due to

both alack of numbers and

artificial turfs for playing outside

of the growing season.

The pair arranged for two West

Coast teams to travel over and

challenge the Rangiora ladies to

aweekend tournament recently.

Wet weather prevented play on

the artificial green, but the men

re­arranged the indoor facility to

allow for two hours of ‘‘stadium

bowls’’ in the clubhouse, with

West Coast and Rangiora scoring

two wins each.

The bowlers then retreated to a

local restaurant for an evening

meal. Sunday’s kinder weather

allowed play to continue outside

on the artificial green.

The West Coasters pulled

ahead to claim the Mullrich

Trophy.

The weekend ended with a

light morning tea and, after photo

sessions, the visitors returned to

the West Coast promising to host

areturn weekend later in the

bowling season.

Call for action ...

Students make their

feelings known

during arecent

climate protest in

Hawarden.

PHOTO:SUPPLIED

It’sour future, we are

going to fight for it

JOIN USNOW!

See website for details

Tessa Allan, astudent from Hurunui College, explains her motivation to

take part in the recent International School Strike for Climate Day.

Idecided as one of HurunuiCollege’s

head students to join the International

School Strike for Climate Day on

September 27.

Iorganised aproactive day of action at

the college to raise awareness by having

Nicola Toki, the Department of

Conservation endangered species

ambassador, speak to the students about

the need to protect our fragile

ecosystems and what climate change

means for our native species.

Thirty­five students supported the

Climate Strike by creating banners,

using recycled cardboard and unwanted

paint, then went on to protest in

Hawarden.

It was an extremely successful day,

with passers­by waving and tooting,

while others came out of their homes to

take photosand videos.

This was well­supported by staff

membersand our principal, Stephen

Beck.

Striking locally was more practical

than driving into Christchurch.

We didn’t release any carbon

emissions by travelling and it allowed

more students to express their message

in asmall town.

We hope that this will put pressure on

the government and the Hurunui

District Council to take this issue more

seriously and to declare aclimate

emergency.

We know that our council and the New

Zealand government are taking steps in

the right direction to attack climate

❛We want stricter laws and

policies on theuse, extraction

and explorationoffossil fuels.We

want to investinarenewable

and regenerative economy. We

need everyonetothink about

how their actions will affect our

environment,not only the

economy.❜

change. However, Ibelievethat

committing to, and declaring, aclimate

emergency will force more urgent

action, lead to more ambitious goals,

and create more accountability for

governmental and municipal bodies.

We, the youth, are asking the

government to declare aclimate

emergency.

We want cross­party supportfor the

Zero Carbon Act. We want abetter

public transport system.

We want stricter laws and policies on

the use, extraction and exploration of

fossil fuels. We want to invest in a

renewable and regenerative economy.

We need everyone to think about how

their actions will affect our

environment, not only the economy.

We need change now. Not in ayear’s

time. Not in amonth. Now. This is our

future and we are going to fight for it.
