Marie Black<br />

Strong<br />

showing<br />

at polls<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Marie Black has become the first<br />

woman to hold the Hurunui<br />

District Council mayoralty with a<br />

convincing win at the polls.<br />

She won the mayoral contest by<br />

just over 2000 votes from her<br />

nearest rival, Julia McLean, after<br />

preliminary election results were<br />

announced this week.<br />

Mrs Black, who has been<br />

deputy mayor for six years of her<br />

nine­year council tenure, says<br />

she is ‘‘humbled and proud’’ to<br />

have been elected to the top job.<br />

‘‘I am feeling very excited to be<br />

given this great opportunity to<br />

carry on the good work our<br />

council does.<br />

‘‘I have spoken to all the<br />

elected councillors and they are<br />

excited about the opportunity to<br />

work as ateam, work to their<br />

strengths and bring the<br />

community along on the<br />

journey,’’ she says.<br />

‘‘I am delighted the result has<br />

been so resounding from a<br />

community perspective.’’<br />

Tenacity pays off<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Dan Gordon could be seen campaigning<br />

in all weathers, waving at passing<br />

motorists. He ran astring of streetcorner<br />

meetings, and his billboards<br />

festooned the district.<br />

His tenacity and determination have<br />

carried him to aconvincing win in the<br />

Waimakariri mayoral race, in which he<br />

polled 2693 more votes than his nearest<br />

rival, Paul Williams, according to the<br />

preliminary results.<br />

Mr Gordon says he is feeling humbled.<br />

‘‘I would like to thank all those who<br />

voted for me. Ioffer my congratulations<br />

to all who stood. This election has been<br />

well contested with avery high voting<br />

turnout (46.38 percent, excluding special<br />

votes).’’<br />

He was at work bright and early on<br />

Monday, sleeves rolled up and ready for<br />

business.<br />

His priorities include managing the<br />

forecast 25% population increase in the<br />

Waimakariri District over the next 10<br />

years, which he says will add to the<br />

growing problems of traffic congestion,<br />

carparking and the need for good healthcare<br />

solutions, including after­hours<br />

services.<br />

‘‘We need to find workable solutions to<br />

these issues so that our district can<br />

continue to thrive,’’ he says.<br />

‘‘Another priority for me, and Iam<br />

sure one which councillors share, is to<br />

find ways of achieving these, at the same<br />

time holding the cost of rates.’’<br />

Mr Gordon is also keen to create closer<br />

connections between the community and<br />

the council. He intends to hold regular<br />

drop­in sessions around the district so<br />

people can share their views on issues.<br />

‘‘I want to be an accessible mayor, and<br />

available to everyone.’’<br />

The election has delivered several<br />

changes around the council table.<br />

Imagination gone wild<br />

... Amy Roberts’<br />

ensemble, The<br />

Phoenix,was<br />

recognised at the<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> <strong>2019</strong><br />

Wearable Arts<br />

Awards. PHOTO:SUPPLIED<br />

By RACHEL MACDONALD<br />

Amy Roberts uses art to<br />

expressherself,whetherit’s<br />

colouring or styling clients’<br />

hairatwork or designing<br />

fashion at home.<br />

She needs to be busy, and<br />

her imagination seems<br />

boundless.<br />

Last weekend, the Cust<br />

hairdresser took awayafirst in<br />

the <strong>Canterbury</strong><strong>2019</strong> Wearable<br />

Arts Awards, hosted by Art<br />

Couture New Zealand.<br />

This followsawin in the<br />

adults’ section of the <strong>2019</strong><br />

<strong>North</strong><strong>Canterbury</strong> Wearable<br />

Arts competition late in<br />

August.<br />

Both gowns weredesigned<br />

and hand­glued or stitched<br />

around adressmaker’s<br />

mannequin in her sitting room.<br />

One is made out of individual<br />

jigsaw bits and the otherof<br />

stylised ‘‘feathers’’, but<br />

weighing enough that it had to<br />

be divided into aseparate<br />

bodice and skirt.<br />

The first gown,currently on<br />

show at the Oxford Museum,is<br />

called The Sky is the Limit.With<br />

abodice, train,fascinator,and<br />

bracelet, it was created<br />

painstakingly from puzzle<br />

pieces separately hot­gluedon<br />

to acut­away underskirt. That<br />

dress was all aboutgiving<br />

something ago, tryingtocreate<br />

something beautiful whether<br />

you fail or achieve, saysAmy.<br />

‘‘If you achieve, that’s great.<br />

But if you fail, I’vecome to<br />

understand, you get an even<br />

better steer on what youcould<br />

do better, whatideas might<br />

workbetter next time.’’<br />

Art Couture asked her to<br />

submit the samedress for the<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> show,but Amy had<br />

other ideas.<br />

In this case, the classwas<br />

called Here We Go Again,<br />

where every garment had to<br />

comprise 70 percentrecycled<br />

product. So, with just four<br />

weeks to work with, andalways<br />

up for achallenge, she started<br />

lookingaround for new<br />

materials to repurpose.<br />

The gown started out being<br />

madefrom bicycle innertubes.<br />

Whentheyran out, Amy turned<br />

to car innertubes. Each<br />

‘‘feather’’ was painstakingly<br />

cut by hand, then spraypainted,<br />

beforebeing handstitchedontothe<br />

base<br />

garment.<br />

The crowningmoment came<br />

whenshe found an exploded<br />

❛Ienjoy art as a<br />

personal way to<br />

express myself and<br />

support the people<br />

around me, and some<br />

of those statements<br />

seem to resonate.❜<br />

—Amy Roberts<br />

steel radialtyre on the<br />

roadside, stopped the car and<br />

pickeditup—tothe horror of<br />

her daughter —took it home,<br />

extracted,curled andspraypainted<br />

the metal,and used it<br />

as the sculptural heart of the<br />

ensemble’s headpiece.<br />

The ensemble is called The<br />

Phoenix,building from ablack<br />

train,through red and orange,<br />

then to gold and pink through<br />

the bodice and shoulders.<br />

‘‘The mythhas it thatthe<br />

phoenix risesfrom the ashes,<br />

becomingstronger and wiser<br />

as it gainsnew life,’’Amy says.<br />

‘‘For me, the story —and the<br />

gown —isabout womenwho<br />

have faced,and overcome,<br />

depression.<br />

‘‘So many women aroundme<br />

have faced really hard<br />

journeys, diedalittle bit,but<br />

have come though it. They go<br />

from this dark place, and get<br />

back up on their feet in this<br />

new position of insight and<br />

power that makes themareal<br />

force to be reckonedwith.’’<br />

What doesthe future hold for<br />

Amy’s aspirations? First, she<br />

would liketosee both awardwinning<br />

gowns mounted in the<br />

windowofher hairsalon,<br />

Cedar Heights, in Cust. Second,<br />

she dreamsofdevising an<br />

ensemble that might qualifyfor<br />

the World of WearableArt<br />

AwardsinWellington.<br />

‘‘Thatmeansawhole<br />

audition process.<br />

‘‘Itwould be great to take<br />

some message to awider<br />

audience,’’she says.<br />

‘‘WithWOW, when you get to<br />

that level, you have to come up<br />

with an idea,auditionthe<br />

garment and presentation, and<br />

be accepted into the show. I<br />

enjoy art as apersonalway to<br />

express myselfand support the<br />

peoplearound me, and someof<br />

those statements seem to<br />

resonate.<br />

‘‘I’d love to see wherethat<br />

could go.’’<br />

Golfers show plenty of drive in rebuild<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Having members huddleina<br />

container in the middleofwinter<br />

to socialise after around of golf<br />

has not been idealfor asmall<br />

<strong>North</strong><strong>Canterbury</strong> golf club.<br />

But Scargill GolfClub<br />

members are now enjoyingan<br />

inviting, warm, and bright<br />

clubhouse,which can also double<br />

as ameeting place for the<br />

community.<br />

The clubhouse and community<br />

hall were victimsofthe<br />

November 2016earthquake. Just<br />

acouple of weeks later,aquake<br />

centred in the Scargill­Greta<br />

Valley area finished them off.<br />

The club’sold concrete block<br />

building took ahammering.<br />

Waghorn Builders securedpart<br />

of the building,which club<br />

members used for abit, but with<br />

daylight showing between the<br />

blocks it was obvious the 1960s<br />

building had seen better days.<br />

Club presidentNick Fairbairn<br />

set out to secure funding to boost<br />

the club’s insurancepayout of<br />

$130,000. It was ameagre sum<br />

because the club had followed<br />

many othersafter the 2010<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> quakes in lowering<br />

its insurancecover because<br />

premiums had soared.<br />

‘‘That wasn’tgoing to pay for a<br />

new building,’’ Nick explains.<br />

She turned to the New Zealand<br />

Lottery GrantsBoardfor help,<br />

beingsuccessful with two<br />

applications,and agrant of $5000<br />

from the KateValley Landfill<br />

Fund also boosted the coffers.<br />

Meanwhile,acontainerand<br />

the tractor shed wereput to use<br />

as atemporary homefor<br />

members and gear.<br />

‘‘Wesat in the container for a<br />

bit,but there was not much<br />

socialising going on. It wasmidwinter,’’Nick<br />

says.<br />

Waghorn Builders, which had<br />

helped the community for free<br />

whenthe Scargill­Greta Valley<br />

quake hit, such as taking down<br />

damagedchimneys, was given<br />

the rebuild task, which started in<br />

May.<br />

The roof was lifted, the<br />

concrete pad retained and the<br />

building pulled down. It was<br />

rebuilt on the samefootprint.<br />

The Glenmark LionsClub paid<br />

for,and built, averanda along<br />

one side.<br />

‘‘Wehave atiny bit of funding<br />

lefttobuild paths.’’<br />

Nicksays none of what has<br />

beenachieved would havebeen<br />

possible without the huge<br />

voluntary inputand help of Stu<br />

Loe andJack Burrows,who were<br />

on the building committeewith<br />

her.<br />

‘‘Itwas such agood club and<br />

community effort to get this done.<br />

Theyall supported me and<br />

helped. It was justamazing<br />

throughout the process. They<br />

would jump in and roll up their<br />

sleeves at working bees, bring<br />

along theirtractors and all sorts<br />

of gear to helpout.<br />

‘‘That is what small rural<br />

communities are all about, and it<br />

is now afacility for the<br />

community too, not just the club,’’<br />

Nicksays.<br />

The community lost its<br />

community hall to the quakes,<br />

Special votes will<br />

decide mayoralty<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

The Kaikoura mayoralty race remains a<br />

cliffhanger. Eighty­five special votes<br />

will decide who gets the top job, with<br />

Craig Mackle holding on by just eight<br />

votes over John Diver.<br />

The final result, once special votes are<br />

confirmed and included, won’t be<br />

announced until today.<br />

The highlight was the 61.37 percent<br />

turnout, with the 1679 votes punching<br />

well above the national average of 44%.<br />

The larger than usual number of<br />

special votes was expected because of<br />

population movement caused by the<br />

November 2016 earthquake.<br />

There were only enough candidates<br />

nominated to fill the seven seats around<br />

the council table. The new council is<br />

Anthony Blunt, Lisa Bond, Vicki<br />

Gulleford, Julie Howden, Derrick<br />

Milton, Neil Pablecheque and Robby<br />

Roche.<br />

Mr Mackle, asitting councillor until<br />

his mayoral tilt, says he is in ‘‘limbo’’,<br />

and is never aman to ‘‘count his<br />

chickens before they hatch’’. He is<br />

delighted at the votes he received. ‘‘I am<br />

pretty humbled by the support.’’<br />

John Diver has previously been on<br />

council, but was not asitting councillor.<br />

Preliminary results are: Craig Mackle<br />

501, John Diver 493, Darlene Morgan<br />

323, Robby Roche 275, Sharon Rayner<br />

funding now stands at $2.2m, with the target set at $3.7m.<br />

Big grant for Kaikoura pool<br />

The Kaikoura community pool project<br />

has received acash injection of nearly<br />

$1 million.<br />

The new outdoor pool facility is a<br />

big step closer thanks to $950,000 from<br />

the Lotteries Commission’s earthquake<br />

fund.<br />

The latest grant brings the total to<br />

$2.2m, with atarget of $3.7m.<br />

The Kaikoura District Council’s<br />

contribution is $1m.<br />

More than $50,000 has been raised<br />

by the community recently, including<br />

more than $12,000 generated at the<br />

Kaikoura Hop last month.<br />

Kaikoura Community Pool Trust<br />

chairman John Wyatt says the<br />

Lotteries funding is ahuge step.<br />

‘‘Building anew pool is now very<br />

much going to happen and it’s areal<br />

privilege to be working towards<br />

JUST RELEASED<br />

“ALPS VIEW”<br />

creating something that will improve<br />

the wellbeing of our youth, our elderly<br />

and our entire community.<br />

‘‘If all goes to plan and we manage to<br />

secure the funds we need, we hope<br />

that construction may be able to start<br />

towards the end of 2020 and an<br />

outdoor pool to be open for the 2020/21<br />

summer swimming season.’’<br />

Draft designs for the new pool have<br />

been created, which includes a<br />

25­metre by 12­metre lap pool, asixmetre<br />

by eight­metre learn­to­swim/<br />

hydrotherapy pool and abeach entry<br />

toddler pool, as well as changing<br />

Congratulations in order<br />

Congratulations to our new mayor, Dan<br />

Gordon, and councillors, as well as to<br />

all the candidates who put up their<br />

hands to serve our communities.<br />

We acknowledge the enormous work<br />

that outgoing mayor and mayoress<br />

David and Marilyn Ayers undertook to<br />

bring our district forward and we look<br />

ahead to the continued dedication and<br />

commitment to our district’s needs by<br />

our new representatives.<br />

Iammeeting with the New Zealand<br />

Transport Agency for an update after<br />

the public meeting Icalled on behalf of<br />

the Make SH1 Safer Committee in<br />

September to voice our concerns<br />

around accidents and dangerous nearmisses<br />

from Kaiapoi to the Ashley<br />

Bridge.<br />

Ihave personally requested that<br />

these improvements are expedited to<br />

be implemented within the next 12<br />

months; that asafer pedestrian<br />

crossing be provided across SH1 in<br />

Woodend urgently; and that funding is<br />

guaranteed to address the safety<br />

concerns raised at my meeting.<br />

With the agency re­allocating some<br />

$313 million back into roading projects<br />

after the Government missed its targets<br />

for its Auckland rail projects, there is<br />

no excuse now for funding for these<br />

In the Electoratewith<br />

MattDoocey<br />

MP forWaimakariri<br />

Authorised by Matt Doocey, Level 1ConwayLane, 188 High Street, Rangiora.<br />

safety improvements to not be<br />

approved.<br />

As the local MP, there is nothing<br />

more satisfying than working alongside<br />

local residents in taking community<br />

action to advocate for the important<br />

things in our community.<br />

Waikuku residents are relieved to<br />

hear that Environment <strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

(ECan) is working through the logistics<br />

to retain their bus service following my<br />

public meeting.<br />

Local resident Kristina came into my<br />

office to ask for my help after she heard<br />

ECan was proposing to cancel the<br />

route.<br />

Iimmediately offered to bring ECan<br />

to Waikuku to hear directly from<br />

residents and it’s great to hear they<br />

have come back to our community with<br />

new proposals.<br />

Iamholding apublic meeting on<br />

water and rural issues in the Oxford<br />

Town Hall on Tuesday, <strong>October</strong> 29, at<br />

7pm.<br />

The Government’s proposed water<br />

reforms have far­reaching implications<br />

for both rural and urban communities,<br />

and Iinvite everyone to come along to<br />

hear more about the proposals from<br />

National’s agriculture spokesperson<br />

and MP for Bay of Plenty, Todd Muller.<br />

‘‘Year­end accounts showanet<br />

‘‘Thiswas primarily dueto$37.7<br />

Asteady stream of people filed into the<br />

Waimakariri District Council service<br />

centre last Saturday morning to vote in<br />

the local body elections.<br />

They were greeted by Waimakariri<br />

District Council chief executive Jim<br />

Palmer and council governance<br />

manager Sarah Nichols.<br />

Although voting could be done by<br />

post, electoral boxes were provided in<br />

council service centres nationwide for<br />

those who had left it too late to vote via<br />

the postal system. About 500 people a<br />

day had used the electoral box in the<br />

council service centre’s foyer in<br />

Rangiora to vote, Mr Palmer said on<br />

Saturday.<br />

‘‘It has been the best turnout for<br />

several elections. We are bucking the<br />

trend (for poor voter turnout), which is<br />

great.’’<br />

He thought that one reason for the<br />

increase in turnout was because voters<br />

had to choose anew mayor in<br />

Waimakariri.<br />

‘‘David (Ayers) will be ahard act to<br />

follow. He has been an awesome mayor<br />

and done so much for the community.<br />

‘‘It is nice that he is able to go out on<br />

his own terms.’’<br />

St Patrick’s Kaiapoi Rarotonga Cultural Trip<br />

Nine Kaiapoi children are about<br />

to embark on atrip of alifetime to<br />

Rarotonga.<br />

St Patrick’s Kaiapoi Catholic Primary<br />

School is taking nine Year 7and 8pupils<br />

and two adults to the Cook Islands in<br />

term four to learn about the local culture<br />

and do some community service.<br />

“This is our second trip and what we’ve<br />

identified is the opportunity to do an<br />

overseas trip like no other,” says teacher<br />

Pax O’Dowd, who will accompany the<br />

pupils to Rarotonga.<br />

“It’s like school camp, where the<br />

students will have some fun, but it’s<br />

Raro style and it’s an opportunity to<br />

give back to the local community and<br />

to learn what we share in common<br />

as Pacific communities as well as our<br />

differences.”<br />

Pax will be joined on the trip by parent<br />

and Board of Trustees member Angela<br />

Lamont.<br />

Although the Cook Islands is officially<br />

apart of New Zealand and uses New<br />

Zealand dollars, life is very different on<br />

the islands and local schools do not<br />

have the same resources.<br />

As well as fundraising for the trip, Pax<br />

says the school has been fundraising<br />

to support Nukutere College, aYear<br />

7to11school in Rarotonga, which St<br />

Patrick’s has built arelationship with.<br />

“Our first trip last year was an<br />

opportunity to see the lay of the land.<br />

We quickly realised the school doesn’t<br />

have alot, and in the last few years<br />

they had afire burn down some of their<br />

classrooms. To date, nothing has been<br />

rebuilt due to alack of funding.”<br />

The St Patrick’s contingent plans to<br />

take some resources for the school and<br />

is seeking support from the local <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> community.<br />

Anumber of local sports organisations<br />

have agreed to donate sports<br />

equipment and local businesses have<br />

given some stationery.<br />

Pax says the group is also liaising with<br />

community groups in Rarotonga to do<br />

some volunteering, planting and clean<br />

up work.<br />

The group will be staying at the<br />

Rakahanga hostel, which is named after<br />

one of the islands, and is like amarae,<br />

Pax says.<br />

“It’s very basic, but community<br />

focused and everybody pitches in with<br />

cooking and cleaning.<br />

“They are wonderful hosts and are<br />

quite proud of their country and are<br />

really happy, humble people.”<br />

The pupils said they were looking<br />

forward to visiting Rarotonga and<br />

meeting their new penpals at Nukutere<br />

College, who they have been<br />

corresponding with in the lead up to the<br />

trip.<br />

Pupil Mason Robson says his penpal<br />

‘likes taro’, apopular vegetable in the<br />

Pacific Islands.<br />

His classmate Caleb Spence says he<br />

has been to Rarotonga before and is<br />

looking forward to returning.<br />

“I’m excited to see the beach. It’s pretty<br />

hot at 30 degrees most of the time and it<br />

rains alot.”<br />

Their classmates are looking forward to<br />

learning about Cook Islands culture and<br />

meeting their penpals.<br />

They have been busy fundraising and<br />

collecting stationery supplies and books<br />

to take to Nukutere College and packing<br />

their bags.<br />

The Cook Islands is acollection of<br />

15 tropical islands totalling 240 square<br />

kilometres and has apopulation similar<br />

to Rangiora.<br />

Far more Cook Island nationals live<br />

in New Zealand, with the 2013 census<br />

identifying more than 60,000 as<br />

resident in this country, about the same<br />

population as the Waimakariri district.<br />

The culture and language are similar<br />

to Maori and the indigenous people are<br />

known as Cook Island Maori.<br />

Nukutere is also believed to be the<br />

name of one of the waka on which Maori<br />

tipuna (ancestors) travelled to Aotearoa<br />

New Zealand.<br />

Tom aims skyward in job switch<br />

Waikari’s Tom Sidey has<br />

gone from maintaining<br />

aircraft to flying them, after<br />

serving nine years in the<br />

Royal New Zealand Air Force<br />

(RNZAF) as an aircraft<br />

technician.<br />

Pilot Officer Sidey was one<br />

of nine air force pilot<br />

trainees from No. 14<br />

Squadron putting their skills<br />

to the test in Otago recently,<br />

conducting flights out of<br />

Dunedin International<br />

Airport.<br />

The pilot trainees were<br />

joined by 10 instructors and<br />

more than 25 supporting<br />

personnel for this year’s<br />

Exercise Wise Owl, atwoweek<br />

pilot­training exercise<br />

focusing on formation flying<br />

in the T­6C Texan II aircraft.<br />

After graduating from<br />

Christchurch Boys’ High<br />

School and joining the air<br />

force in 2009, Pilot Officer<br />

Sidey trained as an aircraft<br />

technician.<br />

In that role he was<br />

deployed to more than 30<br />

countries, including amonth<br />

in Antarctica with the United<br />

States Air National Guard.<br />

However, he always had a<br />

desire to fly and at the start of<br />

2018 started his wings course.<br />

While pilot trainees are<br />

usually stationed at Ohakea<br />

airbase, flying out of a<br />

different airfield during<br />

Exercise Wise Owl provided<br />

them with aunique<br />

challenge.<br />

During the exercise they<br />

flew over Dunedin,<br />

Balclutha, Alexandra,<br />

Timaru, Oamaru, Te Anau,<br />

Manapouri, the Catlins, and<br />

Invercargill.<br />

‘‘When you factor in flying<br />

at up to 300 knots between<br />

250 and 30,000 feet in close<br />

formation with another<br />

aircraft, navigating an<br />

unfamiliar environment<br />

offers awhole new dimension<br />

to our training,’’ he says.<br />

‘‘Having the opportunity to<br />

fly over other parts of the<br />

country and see the awesome<br />

scenery has also been<br />

extremely rewarding.’’<br />

While the wings course<br />

takes up most of his time, he<br />

still finds time to run<br />

ultramarathons and<br />

participate in target<br />

shooting, hunting, fishing and<br />

water sports.<br />

Trainees aim to graduate<br />

by the end of the year, and<br />

will go on to fly either A109<br />

helicopters or the King Air<br />

350 aircraft.<br />

As he nears the end of his<br />

training, he says he has no<br />

regrets about making the<br />

switch.<br />

‘‘Flying as part of the<br />

RNZAF has already been one<br />

of the highlights of my<br />

military career.<br />

‘‘Getting paid to train in<br />

what you are passionate<br />

about and having the<br />

opportunity to contribute to<br />

society in some epic roles<br />

makes all the hard work<br />

worth it.<br />

‘‘And you also make alot of<br />

really awesome mates.’’<br />

The sky’s the limit ... Pilot Officer Tom Sidey, from Waikari, is<br />

‘‘gunging’’ and other antics.<br />

School principal Jason<br />

Miles said it was lovely to<br />

have What Now on site.<br />

‘‘They brought the whole<br />

set for the show with them. It<br />

is amazing. The children<br />

have been very excited about<br />

it. Every child likes the idea<br />

that they might be on<br />

television.’’<br />

It was abig day for<br />

Clarkville singer Ellie Shaw,<br />

aged 10, who won the event’s<br />

sKids Singing Sensations<br />

national competition. She<br />

went up against three other<br />

finalists from around New<br />

Zealand.<br />

Fun evening in Rangiora sold out<br />

An evening of fun and dancing for<br />

people with disabilities, their carers<br />

and friends has been sold out.<br />

makes auditions an exciting part of<br />

the production process, Gavin says.<br />

‘‘I’m primarily looking for the ability<br />

to ‘match pitch’, or ‘can you sing back<br />

to me the note Ising to you’?<br />

‘‘Then I’m looking for areasonably<br />

strong head voice. Think Aled Jones<br />

singing We’re Walking In The Air<br />

rather than Pink, although she is<br />

amazing,’’ he says.<br />

‘‘Apart from that, I’m looking at<br />

intangibles. Engagement, enjoyment,<br />

focus, character.’’<br />

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor<br />

Dreamcoat is amusical, with lyrics by<br />

Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd<br />

Webber. It is based on the biblical<br />

story of Joseph, found in the Book of<br />

Genesis.<br />

and Marion Outlaws for dancing.<br />

Paula said 322 would attend the<br />

event, with 50 volunteers helping out.<br />

‘‘These events are made possible<br />

because the community gets involved to<br />

help,’’ she said.’’We are grateful for<br />

that. It is avery caring, wrap­around<br />

community.’’<br />

Two artists, two styles, one show<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

Two <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> artists with<br />

different styles of work are<br />

collaborating for an exhibition in<br />

Oxford.<br />

The exhibition, Collective Works,by<br />

Paul Smith and Rachel Harré, will open<br />

in the Arts in Oxford Gallery this<br />

Saturday and run until Sunday,<br />

November 24.<br />

Paul is an abstract artist who was born<br />

and grew up in England but now calls<br />

Kaiapoi home.<br />

Rachel, who was born in Christchurch<br />

but now lives at Woodend Beach, is also<br />

apainter, focusing mainly on<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> landscapes. However,<br />

sculpting in clay has also become afocus<br />

and it is her figurines which will feature<br />

in this exhibition.<br />

Although Paul and Rachel will be<br />

exhibiting different art forms, they<br />

believe their work will sit well together<br />

in the Arts in Oxford Gallery.<br />

‘‘I believe it will be good together<br />

because it is so different,’’ Rachel says.<br />

Both artists demonstrate alove of<br />

vibrant colours in their work. Paul and<br />

Rachel hope the exhibition will attract<br />

not only people who already know their<br />

work, but newcomers.<br />

Paul’s painting style ‘‘starts off quite<br />

loose without any subject in mind and<br />

the end result is asurprise’’.<br />

Rachel’s figurines convey aclearer,<br />

more personal message.<br />

However, both artists know from<br />

experience that each person looking at<br />

their work may interpret it differently<br />

from how they view it.<br />

Arts in Oxford, at 72 Main Street,<br />

Oxford, is open Tuesday to Sunday from<br />

10am to 4pm, except public holidays. It<br />

is run as anot­for­profit charitable trust<br />

and is staffed by volunteers.<br />

Works on show ... Woodend Beach artist<br />

Rachel Harré with Protection,one of her<br />

is holding with Kaiapoi abstract artist Paul<br />

which will feature in the exhibition, which<br />

runs from this Saturday until November 24.<br />

LOVE YOUR LAND<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

Two Rangiora AikidoDojo members<br />

achievedShodan (first degree black belt)<br />

ranking duringend­ofyear grading last<br />

Saturday.<br />

The grading was undertaken by Nobuo<br />

TakaseShihan, chief instructor of Aikido<br />

Shinryukan and technical director for<br />

NewZealand Aikikai, at the Rangiora<br />

Aikido Dojo headquarters in Rangiora.<br />

Shayne Garbes and Scott McMurtrie<br />

both began practising Aikidotoget fit and<br />

gain confidence.<br />

‘‘I find it good for fitness and it has also<br />

beenanassetand good skill to have now<br />

Iamapolice officer, being aless<br />

aggressive style, but Iam now confident in<br />

dealing with an aggressiveperson,’’ Scott<br />

says.<br />

Shayne found learning Aikido suitedhis<br />

temperament, helped him gain fitness,<br />

confidence and find comradeship.<br />

‘‘Also, we should acknowledge the input<br />

of training partners,teachers,and the<br />

support of families andfriends, as<br />

together they make this success possible.’’<br />

However, although there is ageneral<br />

perception that obtaining ablack belt<br />

makes the student amaster in amartial<br />

art, the meaning of Shodan is literally<br />

‘‘beginner degree’’.<br />

Chris says gainingShodanis like<br />

finishing an apprenticeship where you<br />

have completed the basic training, and<br />

are acknowledged as capable of<br />

performing the work.<br />

‘‘You are not yet amaster but you have<br />

the foundation on which to build<br />

experience and become one.<br />

‘‘There is definitely adevelopmental<br />

progression beyond Shodan, and it is<br />

important that students don’t see it as an<br />

end pointintheir training, but the start of<br />

anew and more advanced undertaking.’’

Introducing Miss March<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

SPCA’s 2020 dog calendar will be<br />

special for Linda Newman.<br />

Aphotograph of her dog, Bella,<br />

a4­year­old German shepherdborder<br />

collie cross, is one of<br />

more than 1200 pets chosen to<br />

feature in the three SPCA<br />

calendars.<br />

Linda, who lives in<br />

Christchurch but was formerly<br />

from Cheviot, said she ‘‘fell in<br />

love with Bella, who became an<br />

SPCA dog after she was ‘‘owner<br />

surrendered’’ at 12 months of<br />

age.<br />

Every year the SPCA holds a<br />

competition to find images for its<br />

calendars and raise funds for the<br />

organisation by asking animal<br />

owners to submit favourite<br />

photos of their pets.<br />

Every pet entered in the<br />

competition is guaranteed a<br />

place in the calendar, with 12<br />

chosen as ‘‘pets of the month’’<br />

and acat, dog, and small, or farm<br />

animal, as the cover stars.<br />

Bella is likely to be the March<br />

dog.<br />

The entry fee was $25 per<br />

photo, and every entry received a<br />

free calendar, with all proceeds<br />

going to helping the injured,<br />

abused, and abandoned animals<br />

of New Zealand.<br />

The three calendars will<br />

feature cats, dogs and other<br />

animals.<br />

‘‘The calendars are filled with<br />

incredible photos of pets across<br />

New Zealand, says the SPCA’s<br />

senior communications<br />

organiser, Sarah Hitchings.<br />

‘‘We are so happy with how the<br />

calendars look. It made us so<br />

happy seeing how loved and<br />

happy so many animals in New<br />

Zealand are.’’<br />

The calendars cost $25 each<br />

and can be ordered at: spca.nz/<br />

2020calendars, with all proceeds<br />

going to the SPCA.<br />

Calendar girl ... Bella, whose image will appear in the SPCA’s<br />

Trust to be<br />

out in force<br />

for spring<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

The Community Wellbeing <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> Trust will be out and about in<br />

the community over the next month.<br />

With spring in the air, trust manager<br />

Deirdre Ryan says <strong>October</strong> is agood<br />

chance for people to get out and enjoy<br />

their community.<br />

She says the trust has already been out<br />

at both the Kaiapoi River Wellbeing<br />

Walk and the <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> Business<br />

Expo, and will be present at the<br />

Soroptomist Fair on <strong>October</strong> 22, and the<br />

Rangiora and Amberley A&P shows.<br />

‘‘We are out and about, so people<br />

can come and meet us and find out about<br />

us.<br />

‘‘What we have been wanting to do is<br />

build relationships with the community<br />

and we want to contribute to athriving<br />

community, and people thrive when their<br />

wellbeing is strong.’’<br />

In recent years the trust has marked<br />

Community Wellbeing Week in <strong>October</strong><br />

to raise the profile of the trust, wellbeing<br />

in the community, and some muchneeded<br />

funds.<br />

With anew marketing and<br />

communications person, Louise Leitch,<br />

having joined the team, Deirdre says the<br />

trust is reviewing how it can promote its<br />

presence in the community.<br />

‘‘We are thinking strategically about<br />

how we are raising our profile in our<br />

local community,’’ Louise says.<br />

‘‘Is calling it something like<br />

‘Community Wellbeing Month’, which is a<br />

collection of activities in the community,<br />

the best approach, rather than<br />

connecting it with an international or<br />

national event?<br />

‘‘And does amonth of activities mean<br />

something to the community?’’<br />

The trust is also hosting its annual<br />

meeting on <strong>October</strong> 23 from 4.30pm in the<br />

Rangiora Town Hall function centre and<br />

afundraising concert with former<br />

international cricketer and coach John<br />

Wright and the Sou’Westers on November<br />

1.<br />

‘‘We are uniquely <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong>, so<br />

come along to our AGM and find out more<br />

about your trust,’’ Deirdre says.<br />

The trust celebrated its 30th<br />

anniversary last year and continues to<br />

offer arange of services, including the<br />

community pantry in Kaiapoi, family<br />

counselling, youth drug and alcohol<br />

counsellors, social workers, restorative<br />

justice and the Karanga Mai Early<br />

Learning Centre, which offers support<br />

for young parents.<br />

Thanks to community support, the trust<br />

is able to offer its services at no cost to<br />

recipients.

Thejudges were impressed with<br />

Sharlene’s ability to articulatethe Skool<br />

Loop product andits focus on providing<br />

employment in rural towns.<br />

TheSkool Loop appwas launched six<br />

years agoand startedout from Sharlene’s<br />

CRICKET<br />

The <strong>Canterbury</strong> Country premiergrade<br />

cricket competition finallygot started on<br />

Saturday after all matcheswere<br />

abandonedbecause of poor weatherthe<br />

previous weekend.<br />

However, not all teams got to play.<br />

Darfield’s game againstOxford/<br />

Rangiora was abandoned without aball<br />

being bowled because of persistent drizzle.<br />

Fortunately, the otherthree matches did<br />

get started, but in some cases withreduced<br />

overs as early­morning rain againhad an<br />

effect.<br />

Newly promoted Lincolnwas host to the<br />

powerful Cheviotside and started<br />

promisingly with an openingpartnership<br />

of 51.<br />

Hugh Patersonwas the main contributor<br />

to the inningswith 33, ablyassistedby<br />

captain Adam Coleman with28.<br />

Wickets fell regularly after the opening<br />

partnership beforeLincoln was dismissed<br />

for abelowpar 111 in the final over of the<br />

innings.<br />

Charley Sidey andScott Burnettcaused<br />

all sorts of problems for the batsmen,<br />

taking4/18 and3/18 respectively.<br />

In reply, Cheviot was in early trouble at<br />

28 for 3before afourth­wicket partnership<br />

of 87 by Will Hamiltonand Chris Burnett<br />

took the side to victory in the 19th over.<br />

Hamilton led the way with abreezy43<br />

not­out in 39 balls.<br />

Easy Southbrook win<br />

Seftonbatted first againstSouthbrookat<br />

SouthbrookPark. Sefton’s batsmen<br />

struggled throughout the innings against<br />

the accurate Southbrookattack.Sefton<br />

limpedto76all out off 30 overs,with only<br />

Chris Warner (20) and Fraser Sheat (11)<br />

reaching double figures.<br />

Luan Blom,with 3/9 off 7overs,was the<br />

pick of the Southbrook bowlers.<br />

Southbrookstalwart Darren Boyletook<br />

2/12 and in the processcapturedhis 500th<br />

wicketinpremiergrade cricket.<br />

Chasing the meagretotal, Shanan<br />

Stewart again showed why he is the best<br />

batsman in the competition, racing to 51 off<br />

49 balls before being stumpedwith the<br />

scorestied.Southbrook lostjust two<br />

wickets in reaching the total in 13.4 overs.<br />

In form with ball ... Cheviot’s Scott<br />

Burnett, who took 3/18, caused all sorts of<br />

problems for the Lincoln batsmen.<br />

Too strong<br />

Schoolprepares to<br />

mark40thjubilee<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Rangiora New Life School’s 40th jubilee<br />

is being described as an opportunity for<br />

people to connect.<br />

Principal Stephen Walters says the<br />

school’s Labour Weekend celebrations<br />

will provide achance to reflect on the<br />

school’s growth from 16 pupils in 1979 to<br />

aYear 0to13school of 470 pupils today.<br />

‘‘The school was started by the<br />

Gateway New Life Church as aprivate<br />

Christian primary school because the<br />

founders wanted to educate their own<br />

children.<br />

‘‘Those 16 pioneers weathered a<br />

winter at Leigh Camp (at Loburn), before<br />

the founders purchased the current site.<br />

It was aswampy, overgrown paddock.’’<br />

He says the school was built first,<br />

before the church, and has been added<br />

to over the years.<br />

The school later became astateintegrated<br />

Christian school and was<br />

extended to Year 13 in 1994.<br />

‘‘We provide aChristian education for<br />

families that want it. It’s very important<br />

that as aparent you have the choice<br />

between agood quality state school in<br />

your local area, an integrated school,<br />

and private schools,’’ Mr Walters says.<br />

‘‘I’ve always been agreat believer in<br />

working with the community. We are<br />

part of the area schools network in<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> and also with primary<br />

schools that are associated with them,<br />

and we have relationships with all the<br />

schools in <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> as well.’’<br />

He says the school runs six buses each<br />

day, picking up pupils from as far afield<br />

as Oxford and Amberley. It has strong<br />

relationships with local churches,<br />

across avariety of denominations.<br />

The 40th jubilee celebrations will<br />

begin with the annual Founders’ Day<br />

Assembly at 2pm on Friday, <strong>October</strong> 25,<br />

where one of the original founding<br />

trustees will be attending.<br />

‘‘We do this every year to honour those<br />

who have sacrificed alot to get this<br />

school to where we are today.’’<br />

There will be achurch service the next<br />

day at 9.30am, followed by an<br />

opportunity for visitors to have alook<br />

around the school, ‘‘to reminisce and to<br />

reconnect’’.<br />

‘‘It’s lovely to be part of that and to be<br />

having people from all different stages<br />

of the school to come and connect.’’<br />

Registration is still open, but people<br />

are urged to get in quickly via the<br />

Rangiora New Life School page on<br />

Facebook or online at rnls.school.nz/<br />

Chanel’s Riviera, by Anne de Courcy<br />

Far from worrying aboutthe onset of<br />

war, in the spring of 1938the burning<br />

questiononthe French Riviera was<br />

whether one should curtsey to the<br />

Duchess of Windsor. It was agolden,<br />

glamorous life, far removed from<br />

politics or conflict. Chanel’s Riviera<br />

explores the world of the Cote d’Azur<br />

eliteinthe 1930s and 1940s. Enriched<br />

with original research, it is asocial<br />

history that brings the experiences of<br />

both rich andpoor,protected and<br />

persecuted, to life.<br />

The Roadhouse, by Kerry McGinnis<br />

When aspiring actress Charlie Carver<br />

Her relationship with her mother,<br />

Molly, is strainedbut Charlieis<br />

determined to patchuptheir<br />

reins. The authorities declare<br />

Annabelle took her life, but whena<br />
