STAFF REPORTERS

Residentialhousing values in the

Waimakariri district haveincreased

by an average of 2.5% over the last

threeyears, latest figuresfrom

QuotableValue show.

The average house value in the

district is now $451,150, according to

the district’s rating revaluation for

2019.

Value­level changesvary on

location and house type, with the

lowerend of the market generally

having agreater increaseacross the

district.

Lifestyle properties have seen

valueincreasesgreater than

residential since 2016,with the

average improvedlifestyle property

capital value increasing by 3.8%,

whilethe average land value for a

lifestylepropertyincreasedby8.4%.

QV registered valuer Kris Rodgers

told the North Canterbury News that

smaller lifestyle blocks, including

thosedeemedrural residential,had

seen thebiggest increases.

Less movement was seen in larger

lifestyleblocks,4hectares and

above, although there werepockets

with greater value increases.

Bareland blocks,especially

smaller ones, around Mandeville

and closertoRangiora had bigger

increasesthan those further out.

Generally, propertieswithin the

commuter belt to both Christchurch

said,with Rangiora valuesgenerally

Workshop to tackle social isolation

By DAVID HILL

Social connectedness remains

achallenge for many in North

Canterbury.

Asocial inclusion workshop

is beingheld at the

Ruataniwha KaiapoiCivic

Centre next Thursday,asthe

Waimakariri district’s social

inclusion initiatives group

development adviser

Madeleine Burdon,who chairs

the group,says asocially

inclusivesociety is where

people feelvalued, their

differences are respected, and

their basicneedsare met,‘‘so

thatthey can live in dignity’’.

The groupwas established in

2007underthe umbrella of

Social Services Waimakariri,

but is now resourced by the

council’s community team.

‘‘The challenges and

barrierscreating social

isolation have notchanged

much in 12 years—indeed,

some new concernshave

emerged, including rapid

populationgrowth.

‘‘We are championing what’s

already out there and

exploring new opportunities to

address isolation, and we’re

keen to hearwhat people are

doing.’’

She says social isolation can

be caused by severalfactors

and not justbymoving to anew

community, or due to getting

olderorlosing mobility.

‘‘It could be achange in life

situation. It could be someone

who has retiredorlost their

job, or you’velost yourspouse.’’

Some big movers in property revaluations

From Page 1

Turning to business premises,

Mr Rodgers said the

commercial and industrial

sector had experienced steady

growth since 2016, driven by

the effects of population

growth and construction.

‘‘With the developmentof

new retail space, precincts

and industrial developments,

Waimakariri business areas

are now competing with and

attracting customers from

surrounding areas, including

Christchurch.

‘‘Thebusiness sector was

one of the largest movers with

commercial increasing14% on

capital value and 1.9% on land

value, while industrial

property increased 8.1% on

capital value and decreased

1% on landvalue.’’

Mr Rodgers notedthat, in

the rural sector, farmerswere

experiencing regulatory

pressuresfrom government

and financial institutions,

resulting in afallinsales

activity across the district.

‘‘There has been asmall

decrease in valueacross dairy

properties,whilstpastoraland

arablehave remained at

similar value levels to 2016,

with pastoral properties in

some localitiesexperiencing a

small increase.’’

Notices of rating valuation

are being posted out to owners

now, with 26,628properties

acrossthe district having been

revalued.

Ratingvaluations are

carried out on all properties in

New Zealand, usuallyonce

every three years, to

specifically helplocal

councilsset rates for the

following three years.

Such valuesare just one of

several factors councils use to

set rates. An increased rating

valuation does not necessarily

mean aproperty owner will

pay more rates.

Ownerswhoseproperties

have increased above the

district average will likelypay

more, while thosewhose

valuationchange is belowthe

average may well pay less.

Council rates will not be

updatedbasedonthe new

valuations untilJuly 1, 2020.

Theupdatedrating

valuations should reflect the

likelysellingprice of a

property at the effective

revaluation date, which was

August 1, 2019,but did not

include chattels.

Thefigures from QV show

thetotal rateable value of the

26,628 propertieswithin the

district is now $17,252,147,000,

with the land value of those

propertiesnow valued at

$7,883,667,000.

The updated rating

valuations are independently

auditedbythe Office of the

Valuer General, and need to

meet rigorous quality

standards before the new

ratingvaluations are certified.

The council’s manager of

finance and business support,

JeffMillward, says the QV

rating valuationsdon’t

increase how much the

council collectsfor rates,but

can affect the distribution of

rates.

‘‘Rates are one source of

council income,’’ he says.

‘‘Revaluation doesn’t

increase the amount council

collectsfrom rates, but it helps

workout everyone’s share.’’

Also, the revaluation only

affected ratesbasedona

rates such as kerbside

‘‘Rating levels dependon

the new property values will

affect individualrates,’’ Mr

ECan appeal condemned


By ROBYN BRISTOW

Environment Canterbury

defied logic when it appealed

aHigh Court decision on

defining riverbeds, Hurunui

farmers say.

The appeal was dismissed

by the Court of Appeal earlier

this month.

The farmers say the appeal,

and ECan’s determination to

set riverbed lines based on

1­in­50 year floods, has cost

them, and ratepayers who

footed the bill for the appeal,

thousands of dollars.

The High Court had earlier

determined that ECan’s

argument over river widths,

accepted by the District

Court in aprosecution case

against Dunsandel dairy

farmer Mike Dewhirst, was

wrong. ECan’s position was

based on looking at the river’s

fullest flow and searching for

asuitable bank.

The chairman of the

Hurunui­based Rural

Advocacy Network, Jamie

McFadden says the essential

issue was not about

protecting braided rivers as

ECan purported. It was about

using aflawed and unfair

process based on

hypothetical 1­in­50 year

floods to map riverbeds.

‘‘This decision (the appeal)

should be celebrated by all

those who value commonsense

and fair process,’’ he

says.

Mr McFadden says he

cannot understand why

ECan, at significant cost to

ratepayers, pursued acourt

case that would have seen

land used for houses, roads,

and townships, as well as

areas farmed for 100 years,

deemed riverbed.

‘‘A number of farmers have

been subjected to considerable

cost —$5000 to $15,000

—and aWaiau farmer

prosecuted and branded a

criminal because of ECan’s

flawed, and now proven

illegal, riverbed lines

policy,’’ he says.

He wonders if ECan will

show any empathy for the

‘‘appalling injustice it has

inflicted on these

landowners’’.

Dave Holland, who farms

near the Hurunui River, says

the riverbed lines appeared

to be nothing short of aland

grab by ECan.

‘‘It is pretty odd when

riverbed lines encompass

towns and buildings. Ican’t

see how you can suddenly

call private property

riverbed, and then restrict

farming with no talk of

compensation or even

consultation,’’ he says.

He struck problems when

he applied for consent to

extend his irrigation to a

small area of land near the

river. ECan said it was

riverbed,

‘‘The whole thing has been

awaste of money and time.

They are trying to land­grab

and control what is

happening. To all of asudden

call it riverbed was plainly

not right,’’ he says.

Mr Holland says ECan’s

riverbed determination

defied logic, had cost people

quite alot of money, and it

appeared the regional

council was running its own

agenda without the thought of

bringing farmers along with

it.

Paul Hood, who farms at

Parnassus, paid $10,000 to a

surveyor to prove part of the

freehold land he had bought

alongside the Waiau River,

was his land. ECan raised

concerns at the 11th hour,

after he sought consent to do

river protection work on his

property, bounding the

Waiau River.

‘‘I was told Icouldn’t farm

the land because it was

riverbed. It was not until I

threatened to take ECan to

court, and pointed out their

ruling would affect every

farmer along the river from

Parnassus to Hanmer

Springs, that they came

around and in the end backed

down.’’

It was decided to call his

property an island, and the

consent was issued.

He says he should have

challenged it being called an

island, but he had just bought

the farm and had acow shed

on it.

He said he had spent a

considerable amount of

money and did not want to

put anything at risk for his

shareholders.

‘‘I accepted it and moved

on.’’

Nadeine Dommisse,

ECan’s chief operating

officer, says there are no

plans to appeal the Dewhirst

decision.

42 Charles St

Kaiapoi

03 375 4442

She says the key reason

ECan appealed the decision

was to clarify the definition

of riverbed under the

Resource Management Act

(RMA).

‘‘This decision now

provides clarity for

landowners, communities

and river users on apoint of

law that has wide­reaching

implications and is central to

ECan’s work in protecting the

region’s much­valued

braided rivers.

‘‘The RMA definition of

‘bed’ is ‘the space of land

which the waters of the river

cover at its fullest flow

without overtopping its

banks’.

‘‘In our braided rivers,

which do not have clearly

defined banks, the definition

is difficult to apply.’’

Ms Dommisse encourages

anyone considering works

that may be in the bed of a

waterway to discuss it with

officers before doing any

work to ensure a‘‘fuller

understanding of the

potential issues’’.

‘‘Doing so should help

avoid any disputes over

whether they are working in a

riverbed or not,’’ she says.

Why birds of afeather

cause havoc together

By RACHEL MACDONALD

It’s starling season and nestbuilding

is well under way.

Of course, it’s not just

starlings getting creative with

straw, but because they tend

to build in enclosed spaces —

from ceilings where they can

get in under the tin to engine

housings —they are the birds

that tend to pose the greatest

fire risk.

Cust fire chief Peter

Clements says it is

particularly important to

check all engine bays for bird

nests if avehicle hasn’t been

run for awhile.

Tractors are at big risk in

this regard.

‘‘Birds are aproblem every

year at this time, but they

seem to be particularly bad

this year,’’ he says.

‘‘Most farmers are aware of

the issue and we tend to leave

bonnets open on our tractors,

as that means it’s too light for

the birds to nest.

‘‘In fact, some farmers take

their tractor bonnets off

altogether over spring.’’

Another potential problem

centres around nests built

around outside lights on a

veranda or deck, and around

chimneys —especially if the

weather remains abit cool.

Barbecues can be ahazard,

too, if nesting material has

fallen in around the burners.

Nests in letterboxes are not

so much afire risk, but still

not ideal. That’s when abit of

tape across the slot in front

can come in handy.

Persistent ... Within aday of

this barbecue being tidied up,

the birds were already back and

busy.

Highway

upgrade

completed

Ahigh­risk stretch of highway

between Waipara and

Waikari has had its $3.5

millionupgrade completed.

Between 2008 and 2018 one

persondied and 12 were

seriously hurt in crashes on

this part of State Highway 7.

The improvements were

completed last month and it

is hopedthe work willmake

the road safer for motorists,

The New Zealand

Transport Agency’s director

of regional relationships, Jim

Harland, says the stretch is

part of akey freight route

between Picton and

Christchurch.

‘‘It gets busy with local

people and travellers,

particularlyaround holiday

time, as it leads to the turnoff

to Hanmer Springs,through

to the West Coast and also

Nelson andPicton.

‘‘Safety barriers havebeen

added on the highway to help

prevent run­offroad crashes

and rumble strips have been

installed to wake­up drivers

asleep at the steering wheel.’’

Sealed shoulders in frontof

new safety barriers will give

drivers who lose control more

room to recover. Improved

signagehas been installed,

and betterroad markings

make it easier for driver to

see at night and in the wet.

Around the electorate with

STUART SMITH MP FOR KAIKOURA

Best wishes to new mayor

Iwould firstly like to congratulate

Marie Black, the new mayor of the

Hurunui District.

Marie will draw on the experience

gained from her two previous terms as

deputy mayor as she makes the

transition to the mayoralty.

Iwish Marie all the best as she settles

into her new role.

On adifferent topic, Irecently went

to the Wetlands and Streams Field Day

in Culverden on The Triangle farm.

This Hurunui Biodiversity Group

event was well­attended and the work

that has been done on this farm to

enhance its environment is to be

applauded.

Sharemilker Nigel Gardiner has put

in agreat deal of effort on stream and

wetland enhancement and riparian

planting, and it was valuable to be able

to see this first­hand and learn more

about this farm­based project.

Farmers do feel like they are under

attack at the moment, and it seems that

the loudest voices have the least

understanding of the investment in

environmental projects that so many

farmers are undertaking.

The latest freshwater proposals are

an example of this, as they heap

pressures on to asector that is already

at historically low levels of confidence.

Farmers like those at The Triangle,

who are putting ahuge effort and

resources into some very exciting

environmental initiatives, which are

seeing real results, are being

overlooked.

So is the fact that aLand, Air, Water

Aotearoa (LAWA) analysis of national

river quality trends from 2008 to 2017

showed that, for eight out of the nine

water quality indicators on which it

reported, more monitored sites were

improving than degrading.

National signed an accord with the

dairy industry that saw farmers fence

off 98 percent of their waterways —a

major achievement by our farmers —

alongside spending more than $1

billion in environmental investment

over the last five years.

The work these farmers are doing to

enhance their —and our —

environment need to be recognised,

acknowledged and, above all,

supported.

Getting down to business

Incoming mayor aims to lead on regional transport

By DAVID HILL

Climate change and regional

transportare the prioritiesfor

Waimakariri’s new mayor.

As he prepares to be sworn­in

tomorrow afternoon, Mayor­elect

Dan Gordon is proposing anew

climate change and

sustainability portfolio, while the

roadingportfolio will be split into

localroading and regional

transport.

Mr Gordon plans to take the

lead on regionaltransport.

‘‘I want to support the local

issues and the wider regional

issues likethe (Woodend)bypass

and NZTA (New Zealand

TransportAgency) investment

into addressingtraffic congestion

and the motorway.

‘‘We have alot of big projects

that we need investmentinand

that includes passenger

transport.’’

Mr Gordon says it will be a

goodfit, as it is recommended

thatthe mayor sits on the Greater

Christchurch Public Transport

Committee and theRegional

Transport Committee, and

former mayor David Ayers

served on both.

He says climate change is a

growing concern which requires

someleadership.

‘‘It’s certainly an issuewhich

we needtokeep oureyes on and

there’s work being done by

council staff in this space,soit’s

important for council to provide

someleadershipand keep on top

of that.’’

Mr Gordon had abusy first

resultswere announced on

October12, moving intothe

mayor’s office the following

Monday and meetingwith all 10

newly elected councillors

individuallyduring the week.

‘‘I’ve had somereallygood

discussions and we’vetalked

about what each of their interests

are.

‘‘We’ve got threenew

councillors, one in each ward,

and theyare all going to do agood

job in the roles Iwill give them.’’

Oncesworn in tomorrow, the

councillors willselectadeputy

mayor and vote on Mr Gordon’s

portfolio recommendations.

Mr Gordonsays he has met

with Kevin Felstead,following

theelection resultwhich saw the

former deputymayor losehis

seat aroundthe council table.

‘‘I’m sad for Kevin because he’s

beenalong­term colleague and a

friend.’’

He has alsomet with Mr Ayers

duringhis first week and says he

is ‘‘very thankful for his advice’’.

He also met the new members

across the district’s four

communityboards.

‘‘Wedid an inductionduring

the week. They are an impressive

bunch and there’s alot of

youngerboard members and

there’s more women on the

council.’’

Mr Gordonbelievesheisthe

Waimakariri district’s 30­year

history. He will celebrate his 44th

birthday in December.

Imported pair hailed

for their calm nature

By SHELLEY TOPP

ANew Zealand­born Australian

stockman is establishing an Australian

heritage stock horse stud farm in

Fernside.

John Bolstad spent 30 years working as

astockman on cattle stations in

Australia where he learnt the value of

heritage stock horses.

‘‘They are aunique breed with acalm

nature, he says. ‘‘They are incredibly

versatile, reasonably new to New

Zealand, and can be used for farm work,

polo, polocrosse, dressage, eventing,

pony club events and recreational

riding.

‘‘Their temperament is absolutely

impeccable,’’ he says.

John returned to New Zealand in

January after being given the choice of a

‘‘lengthy jail sentence or being

deported’’ for owning an unlicensed

firearm.

The .22 rifle was part of alicensed

collection and not registering it was a

simple oversight, he says. ‘‘OK, Ishould

have had it licensed. It was ablunder on

my part.’’

He moved to Balcairn first, then to a

small farm in Fernside and decided to

import two heritage stock horse

stallions, Stranraer Response HSH and

Bolstad Super Smooth HSH, to establish

his stud farm.

He has already had interest in the

stallions and is hoping they will attract a

wide range of mares.

‘‘Both my stallions are well behaved

and easy to handle and both have thrown

the same traits in their progeny.’’

People interested in checking out the

stallions can do so on John’s Bolstad

Stock Horses Facebook page.

Finishing touches added

It’s all hands on deck at the CustCraft

Group, as members race to finish their

works before its next big fundraiser and

craft display.

This year will be the group’s third event.

The first raised money for the Cust

Museum and the secondhelped the Oxford

Cancer SupportGroup.

This year’s chosen charitiesare Riding

for the Disabled and Rachel’s House Trust,

in Rangiora, established to support young

parents.

Interest in handicrafts such as thosethat

will be on show next month is alive and

well in North Canterbury,says group

member Ricki Sullivan, of Okuku.

She says the group’s membership is on

the rise as younger people discover the

satisfaction that comes from creating

beautifulthings using old­fashioned skills.

Its growing congregation includes those

passionate about cross­stitch, quilting,

crocheting, knitting, embroidery, sewing,

scrapbooking and card­making.

Currently numbering around 40, they

meet on the firstand third Tuesdays each

month, from 10am to 3pm, filling the Cust

Community Centrewith a‘‘reallycool

vibe’’.

‘‘We’re pretty much agroup without

rules—wejust all get on. The exciting

thingisthat we see new people turning up

prettymuch every fortnight,’’ Ricki says.

‘‘We’re all busy women, but we love

handicrafts,and sharing our projects and

ideas. Sometimes, we book the community

bus and go out to look at what other groups

are doing; other times, we might arrange

for guests to come along to talk to us.’’

In choosing where the proceeds from its

fundraising goes, the grouplooks for

charities that receive littleornosupport

from the government. ‘‘Those are the kinds

of opportunitieswherethe community can

reallystep in to help.’’

This year’s Cust Craft Group fundraiser

is scheduled for November 3, in the

village’s St James Church and hall. There

will be asales table,and six raffles.

For those of acrafty inclination,

however, the main drawcard will be the

widerange of handiwork on show.

As well as focusing on the eye health and frame styling needs of the community,

the team at Specsavers Rangiora also like tocelebrate milestones with customers.

On Sunday 1September, the store celebrated its third birthday and the team

provided customers with giveaways and delicious cupcakes along with their

outstanding level ofservice. During the store’s birthday month, the team gave

one lucky customer the chance to win the value of their purchase back.

Local Rangiora resident, Sarah, was delighted tolearn she had won. “I love my

new frames and the updated style in both my clear pair and sunglasses”.

The team at Specsavers Rangiora cares about the health of all the eyes in

Rangiora and welcomes locals to book acomprehensive eye test with one

of their fully qualified optometrists. Every eye test includes an advanced 3D

eye scan that helps the optometrists detect serious eye diseases including

glaucoma, macular degeneration and retinal changes that might beassociated

with diabetes.

Emily’sconfidence-builder

By ROBYN BRISTOW

North Canterbury’s Emily Sullivan has had

arapid rise in the world of pageants.

She is off to Mexico in January to appear

on the international stage —the second

time in just three years she has

represented New Zealand internationally.

Emily was crowned the regional Miss

Five Crowns New Zealand, in 2017, was the

Miss Five Crowns New Zealand Charity

Ambassador in 2018­2019, and, following

selection to travel to the Oceania Miss

World Supermodel production in Vietnam

last September, was recently awarded the

Miss Global New Zealand title.

She is now off to Mexico to compete for

the world title against around 55 other

contestants and is hard at work fundraising

to help her to contest the title.

Emily, an aspiring actress who studied at

the National Academy of Singing and

Dramatic Arts in Christchurch, says the

journey has been life­changing.

She says she has come along way from

being ayoung girl who lacked

confidence.

It was the charity work that attracted

Emily to getting afoothold in the contest,

and since then she says her confidence in

herself has grown. She is a‘‘huge

advocate’’ of women’s rights and says if you

are passionate about something, you have

to do it.

‘‘When Iwant something Ichase it with

all my heart,’’ says Emily, who is apersonal

consultant at Anytime Fitness in Rangiora.

The pageant involves modelling, charity

work, public engagements and

photography.

‘‘It is not all about who is the prettiest. It

is deeper than that. It’s about the person,’’

she says.

Emily says there is alot of hard work

involved and she has to fund herself. But

her love of New Zealand and putting it on

the map spurs her on.

National title ... Emily Sullivan was crowned Miss Global New Zealand.

First meeting in drill hall

By DAVID HILL

The Kaiapoi RSA is preparing

to mark 100 years of serving its

soldiers and theirfamilies.

The local group’s 75th

jubilee history,published in

1994,records that the Kaiapoi

RSA was formed as asubbranch

of the Christchurch

ReturnedSoldiers’ Association

on July 24, 1919, before

becoming incorporatedinits

own rightonOctober 28, 1919.

The Kaiapoi RSA’s minutes

record thatthe inaugural

meeting was held in the

Kaiapoi Defence Drill Hall at

8pm that day,with 50 returned

soldiers present.

Captain William Henry Stark

was elected the first chairman.

AucklandMuseum’s online

cenotaph recordsthat Captain

Starkwas born at Southbrook

on April 6, 1890, andlater

farmed in the Kaiapoi area

before being enlisted.

He embarked on the HMNZS

Pakeha,arriving in Plymouth,

England, in July1917.

He was sent to France in

September, where he joined

the third Canterbury Battalion

infantry regiment.

Laterattached to the fourth

FieldCompany Engineers, he

attainedthe rank of captain in

May 1918.

Captain Stark served as

Kaiapoi RSA president from

1919 to 1920, and againfrom

1940 to 1946.

The Kaiapoi RSA’s original

executive also included vicepresidentCaptain­Chaplain

W.

McPherson,treasurer E.G.

Gray,executive members T.R.

Gibson and H.D. Cooksley

(bothKaiapoi), J. Stokes

(Waikuku), R. Patterson (East

Eyreton),F.Sheppard

(Woodend) and T. Bowers

(Ohoka).

Theminutes record that, at

theinaugural meeting,

Christchurch RSA executive

members explained the aims

of the RSA and ‘‘that it was

imperative for the soldiers to

stick together’’.

TheChristchurch RSA was

thefirstRSA formed in New

Zealand, in 1916.

TheKaiapoi RSA’s second

president was Dr Maxwell

Ramsay, who lived from 1888 to

1937. He is remembered by a

sundial which has beenplaced

at the memorialreservein

Raven Quay, next to the

KaiapoiCenotaph.

ThefirstAnzac Day service

andparade was hosted by the

KaiapoiRSA in 1921

Over the years, the RSA held

its meetings at various venues,

including the Kaiapoi

Volunteer FireBrigade’s

social rooms,the KaiapoiCycle

Club’s rooms, the ‘‘old school

building’’,the drill hall,the

Orange Hall and the Borough

Hall.

In September1945 the

KaiapoiRSA purchasedthe

old Forresters’ Hall,which

served as its baseuntil it was

sold in 1990.

The RSA has had ‘‘a

longstanding friendship’’with

the Kaiapoi Workingmen’s

Club, which hasbeen its main

venue since the 1990s.

Membership has always

been strong, with85members

signed up by 1923.

The women’s section was

formed in 1941, with Mrs M.

Richards elected its first president.

Welfare is crucial

By DAVID HILL

Welfare remainsabig part of what the

Kaiapoi RSA does to support its members.

KerryMcCabe, who shares welfare

duties withvice­president Jamie Morton,

says providing welfare to today’s returned

servicemen and servicewomen remains a

challenge.

‘‘People often think RSAs are about

glorifyingwar, but it’s not,’’ president Neill

Pricesays. ‘‘It’s about remembering, and

the welfare of our members; and welfare is

abig part of whatwedo. We are so

appreciative of the generosity of the

Kaiapoi community on Poppy Day.

‘‘That enables us to carry out welfare

work for returned and service veterans.’’

Mrs McCabe saysmost of today’s welfare

work involves supportingyoungersoldiers

returning fromwar zonessuch as

Afghanistanand Iraq,with many suffering

from post­traumatic stress injuries (PTSI).

‘‘Although it’sour centennial, we

shouldn’t losesightofour objective,which

is to lookafter our veterans and their

widows,’’ she says. ‘‘It’sabig part of what

we do and, more than ever, you have these

young guysreturning fromAfghanistan

and Iraq trying to return to daily life after

what they have seen and experienced.’’

Mr Morton does home visits in the

weekends to support the younger veterans,

as well as the old soldiers, while Mrs

McCabedoes advocacy work.

WeeklyRSA gatherings on Friday

evenings at the Kaiapoi Clubalso provide

an opportunity to check on members.

‘‘The mainthingis, we arealwaysthere

and we are only aphone callaway. And if

anyoneknows of someone who needs

support, you can get in contact,’’Mrs

McCabesays.

To contactthe Kaiapoi RSA’s welfare

section, phoneKerryMcCabe on (03)

Armistice Day to be marked

The end of WorldWar 1, 101years ago, will

be marked in Kaiapoi. The Kaiapoi RSA

will host its annual Armistice Day service

at the Kaiapoi Cenotaph on the 11th hour

of the 11th day of the 11thmonth, on

Monday, November11.

The annualservice marksthe official

end of WW1.

Kaiapoi RSA presidentNeill Pricesays

the local community is invited to attend.

‘‘We encourage the publicand local

organisationstocome along and we invite

them to bring someflowers or awreath to

placeonthe cenotaph.’’

He says the serviceisachancetohonour

Kaiapoi’s soldiers who served in WW1.

Amongthose who returned was Mr Price’s

father­in­law, Private A.E. Sheppard.

‘‘My father­in­law servedatGallipoli and

lateratthe Somme,where he was

repatriated home.’’

Mr Price saysthe nurses who servedin

WW1 should not be forgotten either,

particularly10New Zealand nurses who

lost theirlives during the sinking of the

Marquette troop ship on October 23, 1915.

There was one local nurse on board,

Mary LouiseChristmas,ofOhoka, who

survived the sinking.

SisterChristmasserved in the 21st

general hospital in Alexandriaand

received the Associate Royal Red Cross

medal for her efforts.

She laterreturned to Canterbury after

the war and worked at Christchurch

Hospital training nursing students.

Christmas Road at Ohoka was named after

her grandfather.

The Marquette was torpedoedbya

submarine in the Aegean Sea, with32New

Zealanders drowning.

Several of the 10 nurseshad trained at

Christchurch Hospital, which led to the

Nurses’ MemorialChapel being built.

run from her but she went way beyond

that, clearing out at the finish to win by

eight lengths. She then topped thatoff with

another win in her secondcareer start a

month later. ‘‘It was amazing. Ithoughtshe

would be competitivebut to win the way

she did on our hometrack was very special

and it was fantastic to get Horse of the

Trotting showpiece to be on world stage

By DAVID HILL

The Kaikoura Cup has gone global.

The iconic Kaikoura Trotting Club’s

annual race meeting has caught the

attention of United States television

journalist and harness racing celebrity

Heather Vitale.

Vice­president Grant Anderson says

Heather has contacted the club to say

she will attend the two­day race meeting

at South Bay Racecourse, Kaikoura,

on Sunday and Monday, November 3and

4.

‘‘She has abig following in harness

racing in America and she has heard

about our event and wishes to come to

the Kaikoura Cup.

‘‘She’s probably seen the TV footage

and thought, ‘wow, that’s unbelievable, I

want to go’. So Ithink we will get

enormous coverage in America this

year.’’

Grant says the Kaikoura Cup already

has astrong following in Australia,

where it is screened on Sky One.

‘‘It’s aspecial day and we’ve had afew

Australian horses over the years

because they come over and want arun

before the New Zealand Cup.’’

Australian­owned horse Arden

Rooney won the Kaikoura Cup in 2014

and 2015.

Last year’s winner was Spankem,

which was trained by well­known

Canterbury­based trainers Mark Purdon

and Natalie Rasmussen.

This year’s race meeting will feature

six races on the Sunday, followed by 10

on the Monday, including two Group 2

races with $50,000 in prize money for the

winners.

The race meeting is just aweek before

the New Zealand Cup meeting at

Addington, Christchurch, on Tuesday,

November 12.

‘‘I think it will work out better for us

because there will be people who want

to give their horse aproper race before

the New Zealand Cup,’’ Grant says.

‘‘There’s nothing like race fitness.’’

This year there is arace meeting in

Methven on Friday, November 1, so the

Kaikoura Trotting Cup is offering extra

incentives to lure horses to Kaikoura for

Sunday’s races.

The first five placed horses will

receive prize money, while the

remaining horses will receive a$100

travel subsidy to assist with expenses to

attend on Sunday only.

‘‘Monday is such abig day and it won’t

be affected. But offering alittle bit extra

on Sunday just offers an extra incentive

to come to Kaikoura,’’ Grant says.

‘‘Everything costs money these days,

so anything we can do to try to increase

the numbers of horses, the better it is for

the club.’’

Entry is by gold coin on Sunday, with

Hazard policy reviewed

Kaikoura residents are beingencouraged

to havetheirsay on naturalhazards.

As partofits District Plan Review, the

Kaikoura District Council is reviewing its

natural hazards policy.

The November 2016 earthquake

created newhazards,highlighted existing

ones, andbrought to lightthe risks of

liquefaction, landslipsand fault lines.

Since theearthquake,geotech work has

helpedtoidentifydifferent zoneswithin

the district,such as where liquefaction

may affect largeareas, zones where it is

possible,and zones where it is unlikely.

Thisworkalso identified parts of the

districtatriskfromlandslipsand fault

lines.

Meanwhileincreasing weather

extremes means the community could

faceanincreased risk of flooding,which

can cause disruption to roading networks

and potentially isolate the townand

surrounding area.

The District Plan is thecouncil’s

planning rule book for buildingand

development. Thecouncil hasnew

scienceavailable on flooding,

liquefaction, landslipsand active faults.

•Dairy conversions •Stumping, root raking •Galleries

•Effluent ponds &water storage •Cowlanes &farm tracks

•Land Clearance &general earthworks

•Subdivisions &siteworks •Laser Level Accuracy

This willhelp in draftingnew rules for

thenatural hazards chapter of the District

Plan.

Through the District Plan,the council

andcommunity can determine where and

howfuture developmentisallowed,

outline community plans for natural

hazards such as floodsand earthquakes

and‘‘developthe kind of communitywe

want to leave ourchildren’’, acouncil

‘‘Sincethe 2016earthquake the council

hasbeen updating whatweknowabout

‘‘Nowweneed thecommunity’shelpto

Residentscan join the conversation and

help createthe futureKaikouraby

attendingacommunity risk workshop.

Theworkshops arebeingheldacross

thedistrict to discuss flooding,landslips,

liquefaction andactive faultlines, and

what these may mean forhomes,

feedback, go to the Kaikoura District

Council’s website.

Opposition to urban policy

More of New Zealand’s natural treasures

could go under the bulldozerifthe

government adopts an urban development

policy as proposed, says Forest &Bird.

The proposed National Policy Statement

on Urban Developmentwould allow

councilstoignore environmental impacts

as they fast­track housing and business

developments, the group says.

The policy says councils must provide

for higher density development in areas of

high demand, but it is silentonthe need to

safeguard the environment from this

development, the organisation says.

It fears parts of the Resource

Management Act could be overridden by

the new urban development policy,

eroding environmentalprotections.

‘‘At the moment, regional and district

councilsmust protect important

indigenous species and their habitats, our

coasts and waterways, and outstanding

natural landscapes—that’s required

under the Resource Management Act,’’ it

says.

‘‘Some of those protections will be lost if

this new policy is adopted, because its

focusissolelyonenabling development.’’

Forest &Bird has made asubmission on

the proposed policy, calling for no

reduction in the protection of native

biodiversity and the naturalenvironment.

‘‘We want to make sure it’s not possible

for councils to allow developers to destroy

the habitats of rare nativebirds and bats,

for example.’’ Forest &Bird also opposes

part of the policyallowing greenfields to

be developed without consideration of the

environmental impacts.

‘‘Demand for whole milk powderhas

Farmers take ahit from loss

By SHELLEY TOPP

Fonterra’s announcement of a

$605 million loss for the 2018/19

financial year delivered ahuge

hit to the company’s farmershareholders.

However the loss, hard on the

heels a$196m loss for the

previous year, will not put

farmers out of business, North

president Cameron Henderson

says.

‘‘Their share value and

dividend return have taken areal

hit,’’ he says. ‘‘However, the

share value is only an issue if

farmers are looking to sell shares

and most aren’t.

‘‘The dividend will have a

negative cashflow impact and

will be where the most pain will

be felt.

‘‘Overall, though, the milk

price is very healthy this year so

the Fonterra loss won’t be

putting farmers out of business.’’

He also believes that Fonterra’s

hefty losses do not make the

company vulnerable to an

overseas takeover bid, similar to

the successful acquisition of

Westland Milk by Chinese dairy

giant Yili last August.

‘‘Fonterra is afarmer­owned

co­operative so would require

the approval of abuyout from its

farmer­suppliers, similar to

Westland,’’ Cameron says.

‘‘However, the financial

situation of Fonterra and its

farmers is very different to

Westland so Idonot see any

mood among shareholders to sell

the co­op.’’

The losses at Fonterra are

Huge hit ... Fonterra’s loss will deliver ahit to farmers.

mostly related to its

international investments losing

value and having to be revalued

lower.

Although Cameron is not a

Fonterra shareholder, he says

critics have argued that the

losses on foreign investments

were aresult of apoor strategy

and bad investment decisions

astray from the core capabilities

of the business.

‘‘However the day­to­day

operating of the business is still

very successful, so hopefully the

losses are short­lived.’’

Despite the losses, Cameron

believes farmers still have

confidence in Fonterra’s

management, which has

FILE PHOTO

undergone significant change in

recent years, with anew

chairman, some new directors,

and anew chief executive and

leadership team appointed.

‘‘The first step in fixing a

problem is admitting you have

one, which Fonterra has finally

done in writing down the value of

the business. The next step is

finding anew strategy that plays

to the strengths of the business.

‘‘This strategy has been

announced so now just needs

some fine­tuning and good

execution.

‘‘The farmers Ihave talked to

back the direction of the new

strategy and the new CEO Miles

Hurrell to deliver it.’’

Michaela set to put

stamp on field days

By DAVID HILL

Michaela McLeod is proudto

be leading afamily­friendly

committee as preparations

get under way for the 2021

SouthIsland Agricultural

FieldDays.

The Darfield­based

businesswoman and mother

committee’s first

chairwoman.

Michaela willpreside over

the 2021 field days at the

Kirwee site, near

Christchurch.

‘‘I have kindofwanted to

do the role for some time, so

I’ve beenlearningasmuch

as Ican.

‘‘I’mreally lookingforward

to the challenge.’’

She has aBachelor of

AgriculturalScience with

honours fromLincoln

her husband, Ben.

The couplehave two

children, Joe, aged3and

Harriet, aged8months.

‘‘Joeistractor crazy and I

thinkit’s quite goodfor kids

to see you in arole other

than being aparent, so Itake

them to meetings and

working bees.

‘‘We are pretty familyfriendly.

‘‘A lot of our members have

youngfamilies and bring

theirkids along to meetings

and days at thesite.’’

Whilemost members

graduated from New

Michaela followed aslightly

different path.

‘‘I was working for

Seedforce and the engineer

Michaela would like to see

more women get involved.

‘‘Theethos is on professional

The North Canterbury News, October 24, 2019

SCAR funding to assist with falling land

33

Farmers in the Hurunui and Kaikoura

districts dealing with erosion­prone land

are eligiblefor funding to help assist them

in reducing movement of sediment down

hillsides and into waterways.

Co­funded by Environment Canterbury

and the Ministry for Primary Industries,

and working closelywith other groups

such as the Hurunui District Land Care

Group and the Post Quake Farminggroup

in Kaikoura, the SCARproject (Soil

Conservationand Regeneration) aims to

help farmers with erosion­prone land

carry out planting, retire hillsides in

native vegetation, refine mapping

resources and create strong working

relationships and shared learning spaces.

‘‘Stabilisingthe hillside and reverting

Targeting nitrogen

areas back to their natural stateprovides

arange of benefits for the surrounding

area and wider environment, such as the

ETS, carbon credits,enhancing stream

health, benefiting mahinga kai, increasing

bee habitat and biodiversitycorridors, and

maybe even increasing opportunities in

the tourism sector,’’ says Andrew Arps,

ECan zone manager.

Localfarmer, councillor and Kaikoura

Water ZoneCommittee member Tony

Blunt, hosted afield day on his property

recently.

Around 30 people attended,all

interested in seeingthe SCAR project in

action.

‘‘Our SCAR plantings should

significantly reduce soil loss to waterways

from earthquake damage to the steep hilly

parts of our property. Thepoles are

beneficialinkeeping the hill on thehill,

especiallywhen it comestoretaining

valuable topsoil on these areas. The trees

will helpgrow our soil carbon,increase

the soilswater holding capacity,produce

beneficialsoil biomassand furtherreduce

the effects of drought,’’ Tony says.

‘‘So far we have planted 600 poplar poles

on 12 hectares of land, none of whichwill

be retired. We aim to plant another 20­30

hectares as poles become available, and

an additional 50 hectaresinnatives that

will be retired.Wewill be abletoreceive

carbon credits and still be able to graze it.

‘‘On top of this, we will be able to

coppice the trees and harvest more poles

for future planting and thin them alittle

for stock feed during adrought,’’ Tony

says. ‘‘Through SCAR, we have saved over

$7000 so far, bringing the cost down per

pole and protector from around $16 to

$4.40.

Mr Arps is pleasedwith the progress of

the project, but aims to raisemore

awarenessfor how farmerscan seek

assistance. ‘‘Whatweare finding is that

farmers are wanting the opportunity to

implement this programme over more

than one year, whichisfantastic,’’ he says.

‘‘We are hoping to spread the word

about the range of benefits resulting from

this programme, andreally want to ensure

we reach farmers who are facing erosion

challenges butaren’t sure whattodo.’’

FarmersPaul and Ann Jarman

run Essendon,a400­hectare

dairy farm at Greendale, in

central Canterbury.

SupplyingWestland Milk

Products, Essendon is milking

860 cross­bred cowsand

includes afully self­contained

block for winteringand

growing out young stock. About

two­thirdsofthe 400haisa

milking platform.

The Jarmans areconnected

to Stage 2ofthe CentralPlains

Water (CPW), ahigh­pressure,

piped irrigation scheme

covering much of central

Canterbury.

Sustainability and

minimisingthe environmental

footprint of the farm is thekey

driver to decision­making

regarding farm management

practices. Essendon is

monitoring some paddocks

weeklytoget an accurate fix on

moisture and irrigation

requirements to minimise

nitrate losses.

Working withtheir contract

milker, Paul and Ann are also

using CRV Ambreedgeneticsto

helpreducethe farm’s nitrogen

footprint. The companyhas

research indicating LowN

Sires genetics couldcut a

farmer’s nitrate losses by 20

percent over several

generationsofbreeding.

CRV Ambreed’s LowN Sires

programme is based on

breeding dairy cows with lower

levels of milk urea, whichis

expected to reduceurinary

nitrogen.

Paulsaid he was preparedto

invest in the genetics, knowing

the importanceofreducing

their nitrogen footprint under

planning regulations. He

likened opting for LowNSires

to Merinobreeding, the career

he pursuedpassionatelybefore

starting adairy conversion in

2013.

‘‘You get agood fineflockby

measuring, testing and

weighing.The same is true for

yourapproachtothe dairy

industry;you’vegot to have

good, objective,performancebased

selectionofsires.And

that’s where the whole AI in

New Zealand comes from.’’

Theystarted using bulls from

the LowN Sires programme

two years ago,soon afteritwas

launched. The firstyearling

calves fromLowN Sires will be

on the groundfor mating this

yearand they areconfident it

willhelp them to hittheir

Paul and Ann Jarman

targets for nitrogen reduction.

‘‘It’s part of along­time

project to achieve what we

want to achieve over what’s

probably a20­yearperiod.In

the fullness of time, it could be

quitehelpful,’’ Paul says.

CRV Ambreed head

geneticist Phil Beatson says a

dairycow ate about 180kg of

nitrogenayearasplant

protein.About30kg endedup

as milkand alittle bit to body

maintenance andgrowth. Of

the remainder, about 75­80kg

was excretedasurinary

nitrogenand the restwas

excretedasfaeces.

On averagearound 20%

(16kg) of this urinary nitrogen

endedupbeing leached into

groundwater.

Importantly,asmallamount

of the nitrogeninurineis

converted to nitrous oxide—a

long­lasting greenhouse gas.

Reducing urinary nitrogen was

critical to reducing both

leaching and greenhouse gas

emissions, Mr Beatson says.

As CPW shareholders,

Essendon operates under a

company­auditedfarm

managementplan. The owners

and their manager were

pleasedtoreceive an Agrade

firstup, with no

recommendations.

‘‘Now, with pivot technology

on mostofthe farm, we can

applythesesmall amounts

little and often.Aslong as you

haven’tgot water leaching

through the soil profile, there’s

avery good chance you haven’t

got any nitrogenleaching

through,’’Paul says.

With irrigationplans under

control,the remaining risk for

nitrate leaching is in winter,

when there’s higher rainfall.

The farm had also been using

plantaininits pasture and had

a‘‘little and often’’ approach to

fertiliser use,based on Lincoln

University dairy farm results.
