Workshop to tackle social isolation<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Social connectedness remains<br />

achallenge for many in <strong>North</strong><br />

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

Waimakariri District<br />

Council community<br />

development adviser<br />

Madeleine Burdon,who chairs<br />

the group,says asocially<br />

inclusivesociety is where<br />

people feelvalued, their<br />

their basicneedsare met,‘‘so<br />

thatthey can live in dignity’’.<br />

The groupwas established in<br />

‘‘The challenges and<br />

barrierscreating social<br />

isolation have notchanged<br />

much in 12 years—indeed,<br />

some new concernshave<br />

emerged, including rapid<br />

populationgrowth.<br />

‘‘We are championing what’s<br />

already out there and<br />

exploring new opportunities to<br />

address isolation, and we’re<br />

keen to hearwhat people are<br />

doing.’’<br />

She says social isolation can<br />

be caused by severalfactors<br />

and not justbymoving to anew<br />

community, or due to getting<br />

olderorlosing mobility.<br />

‘‘It could be achange in life<br />

situation. It could be someone<br />

who has retiredorlost their<br />

job, or you’velost yourspouse.’’<br />

Some big movers in property revaluations<br />

From Page 1<br />

Turning to business premises,<br />

Mr Rodgers said the<br />

commercial and industrial<br />

sector had experienced steady<br />

growth since 2016, driven by<br />

the effects of population<br />

growth and construction.<br />

‘‘With the developmentof<br />

new retail space, precincts<br />

and industrial developments,<br />

Waimakariri business areas<br />

are now competing with and<br />

attracting customers from<br />

surrounding areas, including<br />

Christchurch.<br />

‘‘Thebusiness sector was<br />

one of the largest movers with<br />

commercial increasing14% on<br />

capital value and 1.9% on land<br />

value, while industrial<br />

property increased 8.1% on<br />

capital value and decreased<br />

1% on landvalue.’’<br />

Mr Rodgers notedthat, in<br />

the rural sector, farmerswere<br />

experiencing regulatory<br />

pressuresfrom government<br />

and financial institutions,<br />

resulting in afallinsales<br />

activity across the district.<br />

‘‘There has been asmall<br />

decrease in valueacross dairy<br />

properties,whilstpastoraland<br />

arablehave remained at<br />

similar value levels to 2016,<br />

with pastoral properties in<br />

some localitiesexperiencing a<br />

small increase.’’<br />

Notices of rating valuation<br />

are being posted out to owners<br />

now, with 26,628properties<br />

acrossthe district having been<br />

revalued.<br />

Ratingvaluations are<br />

carried out on all properties in<br />

New Zealand, usuallyonce<br />

every three years, to<br />

specifically helplocal<br />

councilsset rates for the<br />

following three years.<br />

Such valuesare just one of<br />

several factors councils use to<br />

set rates. An increased rating<br />

valuation does not necessarily<br />

mean aproperty owner will<br />

pay more rates.<br />

Ownerswhoseproperties<br />

have increased above the<br />

district average will likelypay<br />

more, while thosewhose<br />

valuationchange is belowthe<br />

average may well pay less.<br />

Council rates will not be<br />

updatedbasedonthe new<br />

valuations untilJuly 1, 2020.<br />

Theupdatedrating<br />

valuations should reflect the<br />

likelysellingprice of a<br />

property at the effective<br />

revaluation date, which was<br />

August 1, <strong>2019</strong>,but did not<br />

include chattels.<br />

Thefigures from QV show<br />

thetotal rateable value of the<br />

26,628 propertieswithin the<br />

district is now $17,252,147,000,<br />

with the land value of those<br />

propertiesnow valued at<br />

$7,883,667,000.<br />

The updated rating<br />

valuations are independently<br />

auditedbythe Office of the<br />

Valuer General, and need to<br />

meet rigorous quality<br />

standards before the new<br />

ratingvaluations are certified.<br />

The council’s manager of<br />

finance and business support,<br />

JeffMillward, says the QV<br />

rating valuationsdon’t<br />

increase how much the<br />

council collectsfor rates,but<br />

can affect the distribution of<br />

rates.<br />

‘‘Rates are one source of<br />

council income,’’ he says.<br />

‘‘Revaluation doesn’t<br />

increase the amount council<br />

collectsfrom rates, but it helps<br />

workout everyone’s share.’’<br />

ECan appeal condemned<br />

<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Environment <strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

defied logic when it appealed<br />

aHigh Court decision on<br />

defining riverbeds, Hurunui<br />

farmers say.<br />

The appeal was dismissed<br />

by the Court of Appeal earlier<br />

this month.<br />

The farmers say the appeal,<br />

and ECan’s determination to<br />

set riverbed lines based on<br />

1­in­50 year floods, has cost<br />

them, and ratepayers who<br />

footed the bill for the appeal,<br />

thousands of dollars.<br />

The High Court had earlier<br />

determined that ECan’s<br />

argument over river widths,<br />

accepted by the District<br />

Court in aprosecution case<br />

against Dunsandel dairy<br />

farmer Mike Dewhirst, was<br />

wrong. ECan’s position was<br />

based on looking at the river’s<br />

fullest flow and searching for<br />

asuitable bank.<br />

The chairman of the<br />

Hurunui­based Rural<br />

Advocacy Network, Jamie<br />

McFadden says the essential<br />

issue was not about<br />

protecting braided rivers as<br />

ECan purported. It was about<br />

using aflawed and unfair<br />

process based on<br />

hypothetical 1­in­50 year<br />

floods to map riverbeds.<br />

‘‘This decision (the appeal)<br />

should be celebrated by all<br />

those who value commonsense<br />

and fair process,’’ he<br />

says.<br />

Mr McFadden says he<br />

cannot understand why<br />

ECan, at significant cost to<br />

ratepayers, pursued acourt<br />

case that would have seen<br />

land used for houses, roads,<br />

and townships, as well as<br />

areas farmed for 100 years,<br />

deemed riverbed.<br />

‘‘A number of farmers have<br />

been subjected to considerable<br />

cost —$5000 to $15,000<br />

—and aWaiau farmer<br />

prosecuted and branded a<br />

criminal because of ECan’s<br />

flawed, and now proven<br />

illegal, riverbed lines<br />

policy,’’ he says.<br />

He wonders if ECan will<br />

show any empathy for the<br />

‘‘appalling injustice it has<br />

inflicted on these<br />

landowners’’.<br />

Dave Holland, who farms<br />

near the Hurunui River, says<br />

the riverbed lines appeared<br />

to be nothing short of aland<br />

‘‘It is pretty odd when<br />

riverbed lines encompass<br />

towns and buildings. Ican’t<br />

see how you can suddenly<br />

call private property<br />

riverbed, and then restrict<br />

farming with no talk of<br />

compensation or even<br />

consultation,’’ he says.<br />

He struck problems when<br />

he applied for consent to<br />

extend his irrigation to a<br />

small area of land near the<br />

river. ECan said it was<br />

riverbed,<br />

‘‘The whole thing has been<br />

awaste of money and time.<br />

They are trying to land­grab<br />

and control what is<br />

happening. To all of asudden<br />

call it riverbed was plainly<br />

not right,’’ he says.<br />

Mr Holland says ECan’s<br />

riverbed determination<br />

defied logic, had cost people<br />

quite alot of money, and it<br />

appeared the regional<br />

council was running its own<br />

agenda without the thought of<br />

bringing farmers along with<br />

it.<br />

Paul Hood, who farms at<br />

Parnassus, paid $10,000 to a<br />

surveyor to prove part of the<br />

freehold land he had bought<br />

was his land. ECan raised<br />

concerns at the 11th hour,<br />

after he sought consent to do<br />

river protection work on his<br />

property, bounding the<br />

Waiau River.<br />

‘‘I was told Icouldn’t farm<br />

the land because it was<br />

riverbed. It was not until I<br />

threatened to take ECan to<br />

court, and pointed out their<br />

ruling would affect every<br />

farmer along the river from<br />

Parnassus to Hanmer<br />

Springs, that they came<br />

around and in the end backed<br />

down.’’<br />

It was decided to call his<br />

property an island, and the<br />

consent was issued.<br />

He says he should have<br />

challenged it being called an<br />

island, but he had just bought<br />

the farm and had acow shed<br />

on it.<br />

He said he had spent a<br />

considerable amount of<br />

money and did not want to<br />

put anything at risk for his<br />

shareholders.<br />

‘‘I accepted it and moved<br />

on.’’<br />

Nadeine Dommisse,<br />

ECan’s chief operating<br />

officer, says there are no<br />

plans to appeal the Dewhirst<br />

decision.<br />

42 Charles St<br />

Kaiapoi<br />

03 375 4442<br />

She says the key reason<br />

ECan appealed the decision<br />

was to clarify the definition<br />

of riverbed under the<br />

Resource Management Act<br />

(RMA).<br />

‘‘This decision now<br />

provides clarity for<br />

landowners, communities<br />

and river users on apoint of<br />

law that has wide­reaching<br />

implications and is central to<br />

ECan’s work in protecting the<br />

region’s much­valued<br />

braided rivers.<br />

‘‘The RMA definition of<br />

‘bed’ is ‘the space of land<br />

which the waters of the river<br />

cover at its fullest flow<br />

without overtopping its<br />

banks’.<br />

‘‘In our braided rivers,<br />

which do not have clearly<br />

defined banks, the definition<br />

is difficult to apply.’’<br />

Ms Dommisse encourages<br />

anyone considering works<br />

that may be in the bed of a<br />

waterway to discuss it with<br />

officers before doing any<br />

work to ensure a‘‘fuller<br />

understanding of the<br />

potential issues’’.<br />

‘‘Doing so should help<br />

avoid any disputes over<br />

whether they are working in a<br />

riverbed or not,’’ she says.<br />

Why birds of afeather<br />

cause havoc together<br />

By RACHEL MACDONALD<br />

It’s starling season and nestbuilding<br />

is well under way.<br />

Of course, it’s not just<br />

starlings getting creative with<br />

straw, but because they tend<br />

to build in enclosed spaces —<br />

from ceilings where they can<br />

get in under the tin to engine<br />

housings —they are the birds<br />

that tend to pose the greatest<br />

fire risk.<br />

Cust fire chief Peter<br />

Clements says it is<br />

particularly important to<br />

check all engine bays for bird<br />

nests if avehicle hasn’t been<br />

run for awhile.<br />

Tractors are at big risk in<br />

this regard.<br />

‘‘Birds are aproblem every<br />

year at this time, but they<br />

seem to be particularly bad<br />

this year,’’ he says.<br />

‘‘Most farmers are aware of<br />

the issue and we tend to leave<br />

bonnets open on our tractors,<br />

as that means it’s too light for<br />

the birds to nest.<br />

‘‘In fact, some farmers take<br />

their tractor bonnets off<br />

altogether over spring.’’<br />

Another potential problem<br />

centres around nests built<br />

around outside lights on a<br />

veranda or deck, and around<br />

chimneys —especially if the<br />

weather remains abit cool.<br />

Barbecues can be ahazard,<br />

not ideal. That’s when abit of<br />

Highway<br />

upgrade<br />

completed<br />

Ahigh­risk stretch of highway<br />

between Waipara and<br />

Waikari has had its $3.5<br />

millionupgrade completed.<br />

Between 2008 and 2018 one<br />

persondied and 12 were<br />

seriously hurt in crashes on<br />

this part of State Highway 7.<br />

The improvements were<br />

completed last month and it<br />

is hopedthe work willmake<br />

the road safer for motorists,<br />

The New Zealand<br />

Transport Agency’s director<br />

of regional relationships, Jim<br />

Harland, says the stretch is<br />

part of akey freight route<br />

between Picton and<br />

Christchurch.<br />

‘‘It gets busy with local<br />

people and travellers,<br />

particularlyaround holiday<br />

time, as it leads to the turnoff<br />

to Hanmer Springs,through<br />

to the West Coast and also<br />

Nelson andPicton.<br />

‘‘Safety barriers havebeen<br />

added on the highway to help<br />

prevent run­offroad crashes<br />

and rumble strips have been<br />

installed to wake­up drivers<br />

asleep at the steering wheel.’’<br />

Sealed shoulders in frontof<br />

new safety barriers will give<br />

drivers who lose control more<br />

room to recover. Improved<br />

signagehas been installed,<br />

and betterroad markings<br />

make it easier for driver to<br />

see at night and in the wet.<br />

Around the electorate with<br />

STUART SMITH MP FOR KAIKOURA<br />

Best wishes to new mayor<br />

Iwould firstly like to congratulate<br />

Marie Black, the new mayor of the<br />

Hurunui District.<br />

Marie will draw on the experience<br />

gained from her two previous terms as<br />

deputy mayor as she makes the<br />

transition to the mayoralty.<br />

Iwish Marie all the best as she settles<br />

into her new role.<br />

On adifferent topic, Irecently went<br />

to the Wetlands and Streams Field Day<br />

in Culverden on The Triangle farm.<br />

This Hurunui Biodiversity Group<br />

event was well­attended and the work<br />

that has been done on this farm to<br />

enhance its environment is to be<br />

applauded.<br />

Sharemilker Nigel Gardiner has put<br />

in agreat deal of effort on stream and<br />

wetland enhancement and riparian<br />

planting, and it was valuable to be able<br />

to see this first­hand and learn more<br />

about this farm­based project.<br />

Farmers do feel like they are under<br />

attack at the moment, and it seems that<br />

the loudest voices have the least<br />

understanding of the investment in<br />

environmental projects that so many<br />

farmers are undertaking.<br />

The latest freshwater proposals are<br />

an example of this, as they heap<br />

pressures on to asector that is already<br />

at historically low levels of confidence.<br />

Farmers like those at The Triangle,<br />

who are putting ahuge effort and<br />

resources into some very exciting<br />

environmental initiatives, which are<br />

seeing real results, are being<br />

overlooked.<br />

So is the fact that aLand, Air, Water<br />

Aotearoa (LAWA) analysis of national<br />

river quality trends from 2008 to 2017<br />

showed that, for eight out of the nine<br />

water quality indicators on which it<br />

reported, more monitored sites were<br />

improving than degrading.<br />

National signed an accord with the<br />

dairy industry that saw farmers fence<br />

off 98 percent of their waterways —a<br />

major achievement by our farmers —<br />

alongside spending more than $1<br />

billion in environmental investment<br />

over the last five years.<br />

The work these farmers are doing to<br />

enhance their —and our —<br />

environment need to be recognised,<br />

acknowledged and, above all,<br />

supported.<br />

Getting down to business<br />

On behalfofthe <strong>2019</strong>electedcouncilI<br />

welcome youtothe regular columnin<br />

Incoming mayor aims to lead on regional transport<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Climate change and regional<br />

transportare the prioritiesfor<br />

Waimakariri’s new mayor.<br />

As he prepares to be sworn­in<br />

tomorrow afternoon, Mayor­elect<br />

Dan Gordon is proposing anew<br />

climate change and<br />

sustainability portfolio, while the<br />

roadingportfolio will be split into<br />

localroading and regional<br />

transport.<br />

Mr Gordon plans to take the<br />

lead on regionaltransport.<br />

‘‘I want to support the local<br />

issues and the wider regional<br />

issues likethe (Woodend)bypass<br />

and NZTA (New Zealand<br />

TransportAgency) investment<br />

into addressingtraffic congestion<br />

and the motorway.<br />

‘‘We have alot of big projects<br />

that we need investmentinand<br />

that includes passenger<br />

transport.’’<br />

Mr Gordon says it will be a<br />

goodfit, as it is recommended<br />

thatthe mayor sits on the Greater<br />

Christchurch Public Transport<br />

Committee and theRegional<br />

Transport Committee, and<br />

former mayor David Ayers<br />

served on both.<br />

He says climate change is a<br />

growing concern which requires<br />

someleadership.<br />

‘‘It’s certainly an issuewhich<br />

we needtokeep oureyes on and<br />

there’s work being done by<br />

council staff in this space,soit’s<br />

important for council to provide<br />

someleadershipand keep on top<br />

of that.’’<br />

Mr Gordon had abusy first<br />

week, after theprovisional<br />

resultswere announced on<br />

<strong>October</strong>12, moving intothe<br />

mayor’s office the following<br />

Monday and meetingwith all 10<br />

newly elected councillors<br />

individuallyduring the week.<br />

‘‘I’ve had somereallygood<br />

discussions and we’vetalked<br />

about what each of their interests<br />

are.<br />

‘‘We’ve got threenew<br />

Dan Gordon ...<br />

The new mayor<br />

had abusy first<br />

week.<br />

councillors, one in each ward,<br />

and theyare all going to do agood<br />

job in the roles Iwill give them.’’<br />

Oncesworn in tomorrow, the<br />

councillors willselectadeputy<br />

mayor and vote on Mr Gordon’s<br />

portfolio recommendations.<br />

Mr Gordonsays he has met<br />

with Kevin Felstead,following<br />

theelection resultwhich saw the<br />

former deputymayor losehis<br />

seat aroundthe council table.<br />

‘‘I’m sad for Kevin because he’s<br />

beenalong­term colleague and a<br />

friend.’’<br />

He has alsomet with Mr Ayers<br />

duringhis first week and says he<br />

is ‘‘very thankful for his advice’’.<br />

He also met the new members<br />

across the district’s four<br />

communityboards.<br />

‘‘Wedid an inductionduring<br />

Imported pair hailed<br />

for their calm nature<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

ANew Zealand­born Australian<br />

stockman is establishing an Australian<br />

heritage stock horse stud farm in<br />

Fernside.<br />

John Bolstad spent 30 years working as<br />

astockman on cattle stations in<br />

Australia where he learnt the value of<br />

heritage stock horses.<br />

‘‘They are aunique breed with acalm<br />

nature, he says. ‘‘They are incredibly<br />

versatile, reasonably new to New<br />

Zealand, and can be used for farm work,<br />

polo, polocrosse, dressage, eventing,<br />

pony club events and recreational<br />

riding.<br />

‘‘Their temperament is absolutely<br />

impeccable,’’ he says.<br />

John returned to New Zealand in<br />

January after being given the choice of a<br />

‘‘lengthy jail sentence or being<br />

deported’’ for owning an unlicensed<br />

firearm.<br />

The .22 rifle was part of alicensed<br />

collection and not registering it was a<br />

simple oversight, he says. ‘‘OK, Ishould<br />

have had it licensed. It was ablunder on<br />

my part.’’<br />

He moved to Balcairn first, then to a<br />

small farm in Fernside and decided to<br />

import two heritage stock horse<br />

stallions, Stranraer Response HSH and<br />

Bolstad Super Smooth HSH, to establish<br />

his stud farm.<br />

He has already had interest in the<br />

stallions and is hoping they will attract a<br />

wide range of mares.<br />

‘‘Both my stallions are well behaved<br />

and easy to handle and both have thrown<br />

the same traits in their progeny.’’<br />

People interested in checking out the<br />

stallions can do so on John’s Bolstad<br />

Finishing touches added<br />

It’s all hands on deck at the CustCraft<br />

Group, as members race to finish their<br />

works before its next big fundraiser and<br />

craft display.<br />

This year will be the group’s third event.<br />

The first raised money for the Cust<br />

Museum and the secondhelped the Oxford<br />

Cancer SupportGroup.<br />

This year’s chosen charitiesare Riding<br />

for the Disabled and Rachel’s House Trust,<br />

in Rangiora, established to support young<br />

parents.<br />

Interest in handicrafts such as thosethat<br />

will be on show next month is alive and<br />

well in <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong>,says group<br />

member Ricki Sullivan, of Okuku.<br />

She says the group’s membership is on<br />

the rise as younger people discover the<br />

satisfaction that comes from creating<br />

beautifulthings using old­fashioned skills.<br />

Its growing congregation includes those<br />

passionate about cross­stitch, quilting,<br />

crocheting, knitting, embroidery, sewing,<br />

scrapbooking and card­making.<br />

Currently numbering around 40, they<br />

meet on the firstand third Tuesdays each<br />

Fundraiser<br />

... An<br />

array of<br />

handicraft<br />

creations<br />

will feature<br />

in the<br />

upcoming<br />

display.<br />

month, from 10am to 3pm, filling the Cust<br />

Community Centrewith a‘‘reallycool<br />

vibe’’.<br />

‘‘We’re pretty much agroup without<br />

rules—wejust all get on. The exciting<br />

thingisthat we see new people turning up<br />

prettymuch every fortnight,’’ Ricki says.<br />

‘‘We’re all busy women, but we love<br />

handicrafts,and sharing our projects and<br />

ideas. Sometimes, we book the community<br />

bus and go out to look at what other groups<br />

are doing; other times, we might arrange<br />

for guests to come along to talk to us.’’<br />

In choosing where the proceeds from its<br />

fundraising goes, the grouplooks for<br />

charities that receive littleornosupport<br />

from the government. ‘‘Those are the kinds<br />

of opportunitieswherethe community can<br />

reallystep in to help.’’<br />

This year’s Cust Craft Group fundraiser<br />

is scheduled for November 3, in the<br />

village’s St James Church and hall. There<br />

will be asales table,and six raffles.<br />

For those of acrafty inclination,<br />

however, the main drawcard will be the<br />

widerange of handiwork on show.<br />

As well as focusing on the eye health and frame styling needs of the community,<br />

the team at Specsavers Rangiora also like tocelebrate milestones with customers.<br />

On Sunday 1September, the store celebrated its third birthday and the team<br />

provided customers with giveaways and delicious cupcakes along with their<br />

outstanding level ofservice. During the store’s birthday month, the team gave<br />

one lucky customer the chance to win the value of their purchase back.<br />

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

new frames and the updated style in both my clear pair and sunglasses”.<br />

The team at Specsavers Rangiora cares about the health of all the eyes in<br />

Rangiora and welcomes locals to book acomprehensive eye test with one<br />

of their fully qualified optometrists. Every eye test includes an advanced 3D<br />

eye scan that helps the optometrists detect serious eye diseases including<br />

glaucoma, macular degeneration and retinal changes that might beassociated<br />

with diabetes.<br />

The buildings include halls, historic<br />

buildings, commercial premises, council<br />

They have been identified using anew<br />

nationalsystem based on publicsafety.<br />

The counciliskeen to talk to affected<br />

Emily’sconfidence-builder<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong>’s Emily Sullivan has had<br />

arapid rise in the world of pageants.<br />

She is off to Mexico in January to appear<br />

on the international stage —the second<br />

time in just three years she has<br />

represented New Zealand internationally.<br />

Emily was crowned the regional Miss<br />

Five Crowns New Zealand, in 2017, was the<br />

Miss Five Crowns New Zealand Charity<br />

Ambassador in 2018­<strong>2019</strong>, and, following<br />

selection to travel to the Oceania Miss<br />

World Supermodel production in Vietnam<br />

last September, was recently awarded the<br />

Miss Global New Zealand title.<br />

She is now off to Mexico to compete for<br />

the world title against around 55 other<br />

contestants and is hard at work fundraising<br />

to help her to contest the title.<br />

Emily, an aspiring actress who studied at<br />

the National Academy of Singing and<br />

Dramatic Arts in Christchurch, says the<br />

journey has been life­changing.<br />

She says she has come along way from<br />

being ayoung girl who lacked<br />

confidence.<br />

It was the charity work that attracted<br />

Emily to getting afoothold in the contest,<br />

and since then she says her confidence in<br />

herself has grown. She is a‘‘huge<br />

advocate’’ of women’s rights and says if you<br />

are passionate about something, you have<br />

to do it.<br />

‘‘When Iwant something Ichase it with<br />

all my heart,’’ says Emily, who is apersonal<br />

consultant at Anytime Fitness in Rangiora.<br />

The pageant involves modelling, charity<br />

work, public engagements and<br />

photography.<br />

‘‘It is not all about who is the prettiest. It<br />

is deeper than that. It’s about the person,’’<br />

she says.<br />

Emily says there is alot of hard work<br />

involved and she has to fund herself. But<br />

her love of New Zealand and putting it on<br />

the map spurs her on.<br />

National title ... Emily Sullivan was crowned Miss Global New Zealand.<br />

Welfare is crucial<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Welfare remainsabig part of what the<br />

Kaiapoi RSA does to support its members.<br />

KerryMcCabe, who shares welfare<br />

duties withvice­president Jamie Morton,<br />

says providing welfare to today’s returned<br />

servicemen and servicewomen remains a<br />

challenge.<br />

‘‘People often think RSAs are about<br />

glorifyingwar, but it’s not,’’ president Neill<br />

Pricesays. ‘‘It’s about remembering, and<br />

the welfare of our members; and welfare is<br />

abig part of whatwedo. We are so<br />

appreciative of the generosity of the<br />

Kaiapoi community on Poppy Day.<br />

‘‘That enables us to carry out welfare<br />

work for returned and service veterans.’’<br />

Mrs McCabe saysmost of today’s welfare<br />

work involves supportingyoungersoldiers<br />

returning fromwar zonessuch as<br />

Afghanistanand Iraq,with many suffering<br />

from post­traumatic stress injuries (PTSI).<br />

‘‘Although it’sour centennial, we<br />

shouldn’t losesightofour objective,which<br />

is to lookafter our veterans and their<br />

widows,’’ she says. ‘‘It’sabig part of what<br />

we do and, more than ever, you have these<br />

young guysreturning fromAfghanistan<br />

and Iraq trying to return to daily life after<br />

what they have seen and experienced.’’<br />

Mr Morton does home visits in the<br />

weekends to support the younger veterans,<br />

as well as the old soldiers, while Mrs<br />

McCabedoes advocacy work.<br />

WeeklyRSA gatherings on Friday<br />

evenings at the Kaiapoi Clubalso provide<br />

an opportunity to check on members.<br />

‘‘The mainthingis, we arealwaysthere<br />

and we are only aphone callaway. And if<br />

anyoneknows of someone who needs<br />

support, you can get in contact,’’Mrs<br />

McCabesays.<br />

He says the serviceisachancetohonour<br />

Kaiapoi’s soldiers who served in WW1.<br />

Amongthose who returned was Mr Price’s<br />

father­in­law, Private A.E. Sheppard.<br />

‘‘My father­in­law servedatGallipoli and<br />

lateratthe Somme,where he was<br />

repatriated home.’’<br />

Mr Price saysthe nurses who servedin<br />

WW1 should not be forgotten either,<br />

particularly10New Zealand nurses who<br />

lost theirlives during the sinking of the<br />

Marquette troop ship on <strong>October</strong> 23, 1915.<br />

There was one local nurse on board,<br />

Mary LouiseChristmas,ofOhoka, who<br />

survived the sinking.<br />

SisterChristmasserved in the 21st<br />

received the Associate Royal Red Cross<br />

medal for her efforts.<br />

She laterreturned to <strong>Canterbury</strong> after<br />

the war and worked at Christchurch<br />

Hospital training nursing students.<br />

Christmas Road at Ohoka was named after<br />

her grandfather.<br />

The Marquette was torpedoedbya<br />

submarine in the Aegean Sea, with32New<br />

another win in her secondcareer start a<br />

month later. ‘‘It was amazing. Ithoughtshe<br />

‘‘She has abig following in harness<br />

racing in America and she has heard<br />

about our event and wishes to come to<br />

the Kaikoura Cup.<br />

‘‘She’s probably seen the TV footage<br />

and thought, ‘wow, that’s unbelievable, I<br />

want to go’. So Ithink we will get<br />

enormous coverage in America this<br />

year.’’<br />

Grant says the Kaikoura Cup already<br />

has astrong following in Australia,<br />

where it is screened on Sky One.<br />

‘‘It’s aspecial day and we’ve had afew<br />

Australian horses over the years<br />

because they come over and want arun<br />

before the New Zealand Cup.’’<br />

Australian­owned horse Arden<br />

Rooney won the Kaikoura Cup in 2014<br />

and 2015.<br />

Last year’s winner was Spankem,<br />

which was trained by well­known<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong>­based trainers Mark Purdon<br />

and Natalie Rasmussen.<br />

This year’s race meeting will feature<br />

six races on the Sunday, followed by 10<br />

on the Monday, including two Group 2<br />

races with $50,000 in prize money for the<br />

winners.<br />

The race meeting is just aweek before<br />

the New Zealand Cup meeting at<br />

Addington, Christchurch, on Tuesday,<br />

November 12.<br />

‘‘I think it will work out better for us<br />

because there will be people who want<br />

to give their horse aproper race before<br />

the New Zealand Cup,’’ Grant says.<br />

‘‘There’s nothing like race fitness.’’<br />

This year there is arace meeting in<br />

Methven on Friday, November 1, so the<br />

Kaikoura Trotting Cup is offering extra<br />

incentives to lure horses to Kaikoura for<br />

Sunday’s races.<br />

The first five placed horses will<br />

receive prize money, while the<br />

remaining horses will receive a$100<br />

travel subsidy to assist with expenses to<br />

attend on Sunday only.<br />

‘‘Monday is such abig day and it won’t<br />

be affected. But offering alittle bit extra<br />

on Sunday just offers an extra incentive<br />

to come to Kaikoura,’’ Grant says.<br />

‘‘Everything costs money these days,<br />

so anything we can do to try to increase<br />

the numbers of horses, the better it is for<br />

the club.’’<br />

Entry is by gold coin on Sunday, with<br />

Hazard policy reviewed<br />

Kaikoura residents are beingencouraged<br />

to havetheirsay on naturalhazards.<br />

As partofits District Plan Review, the<br />

Kaikoura District Council is reviewing its<br />

natural hazards policy.<br />

The November 2016 earthquake<br />

created newhazards,highlighted existing<br />

ones, andbrought to lightthe risks of<br />

liquefaction, landslipsand fault lines.<br />

Since theearthquake,geotech work has<br />

helpedtoidentifydifferent zoneswithin<br />

the district,such as where liquefaction<br />

may affect largeareas, zones where it is<br />

possible,and zones where it is unlikely.<br />

Thisworkalso identified parts of the<br />

districtatriskfromlandslipsand fault<br />

lines.<br />

Meanwhileincreasing weather<br />

extremes means the community could<br />

faceanincreased risk of flooding,which<br />

can cause disruption to roading networks<br />

and potentially isolate the townand<br />

surrounding area.<br />

The District Plan is thecouncil’s<br />

planning rule book for buildingand<br />

development. Thecouncil hasnew<br />

Opposition to urban policy<br />

More of New Zealand’s natural treasures<br />

could go under the bulldozerifthe<br />

government adopts an urban development<br />

policy as proposed, says Forest &Bird.<br />

The proposed National Policy Statement<br />

on Urban Developmentwould allow<br />

councilstoignore environmental impacts<br />

as they fast­track housing and business<br />

developments, the group says.<br />

The policy says councils must provide<br />

for higher density development in areas of<br />

high demand, but it is silentonthe need to<br />

safeguard the environment from this<br />

development, the organisation says.<br />

It fears parts of the Resource<br />

Management Act could be overridden by<br />

the new urban development policy,<br />

eroding environmentalprotections.<br />

‘‘At the moment, regional and district<br />

councilsmust protect important<br />

indigenous species and their habitats, our<br />

coasts and waterways, and outstanding<br />

natural landscapes—that’s required<br />

under the Resource Management Act,’’ it<br />

says.<br />

‘‘Some of those protections will be lost if<br />

this new policy is adopted, because its<br />

focusissolelyonenabling development.’’<br />

Forest &Bird has made asubmission on<br />

the proposed policy, calling for no<br />

reduction in the protection of native<br />

biodiversity and the naturalenvironment.<br />

‘‘We want to make sure it’s not possible<br />

for councils to allow developers to destroy<br />

the habitats of rare nativebirds and bats,<br />

for example.’’ Forest &Bird also opposes<br />

part of the policyallowing greenfields to<br />

be developed without consideration of the<br />

environmental impacts.<br />

Dairyfarmers will be buoyedbyFonterra’s<br />

the range up 30 cents,tobetween $6.55 and<br />

32 The <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> <strong>News</strong>, <strong>October</strong> <strong>24</strong>, <strong>2019</strong><br />

Farmers take ahit from loss<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

Fonterra’s announcement of a<br />

$605 million loss for the 2018/19<br />

financial year delivered ahuge<br />

hit to the company’s farmershareholders.<br />

However the loss, hard on the<br />

heels a$196m loss for the<br />

previous year, will not put<br />

farmers out of business, <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> Federated Farmers<br />

president Cameron Henderson<br />

says.<br />

‘‘Their share value and<br />

dividend return have taken areal<br />

hit,’’ he says. ‘‘However, the<br />

share value is only an issue if<br />

farmers are looking to sell shares<br />

and most aren’t.<br />

‘‘The dividend will have a<br />

negative cashflow impact and<br />

will be where the most pain will<br />

be felt.<br />

‘‘Overall, though, the milk<br />

price is very healthy this year so<br />

the Fonterra loss won’t be<br />

putting farmers out of business.’’<br />

He also believes that Fonterra’s<br />

hefty losses do not make the<br />

company vulnerable to an<br />

overseas takeover bid, similar to<br />

the successful acquisition of<br />

Westland Milk by Chinese dairy<br />

giant Yili last August.<br />

‘‘Fonterra is afarmer­owned<br />

co­operative so would require<br />

the approval of abuyout from its<br />

farmer­suppliers, similar to<br />

Westland,’’ Cameron says.<br />

‘‘However, the financial<br />

situation of Fonterra and its<br />

farmers is very different to<br />

Westland so Idonot see any<br />

mood among shareholders to sell<br />

the co­op.’’<br />

The losses at Fonterra are<br />

Huge hit ... Fonterra’s loss will deliver ahit to farmers.<br />

mostly related to its<br />

international investments losing<br />

value and having to be revalued<br />

lower.<br />

Although Cameron is not a<br />

Fonterra shareholder, he says<br />

critics have argued that the<br />

losses on foreign investments<br />

were aresult of apoor strategy<br />

and bad investment decisions<br />

astray from the core capabilities<br />

of the business.<br />

‘‘However the day­to­day<br />

operating of the business is still<br />

very successful, so hopefully the<br />

losses are short­lived.’’<br />

Despite the losses, Cameron<br />

believes farmers still have<br />

confidence in Fonterra’s<br />

management, which has<br />

FILE PHOTO<br />

undergone significant change in<br />

recent years, with anew<br />

chairman, some new directors,<br />

and anew chief executive and<br />

leadership team appointed.<br />

‘‘The first step in fixing a<br />

problem is admitting you have<br />

one, which Fonterra has finally<br />

done in writing down the value of<br />

the business. The next step is<br />

finding anew strategy that plays<br />

to the strengths of the business.<br />

‘‘This strategy has been<br />

announced so now just needs<br />

some fine­tuning and good<br />

execution.<br />

‘‘The farmers Ihave talked to<br />

back the direction of the new<br />

strategy and the new CEO Miles<br />

Hurrell to deliver it.’’<br />

Michaela set to put<br />

stamp on field days<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Michaela McLeod is proudto<br />

be leading afamily­friendly<br />

committee as preparations<br />

get under way for the 2021<br />

FieldDays.<br />

The Darfield­based<br />

businesswoman and mother<br />

committee’s first<br />

chairwoman.<br />

Michaela willpreside over<br />

the 2021 field days at the<br />

Kirwee site, near<br />

Christchurch.<br />

‘‘I have kindofwanted to<br />

do the role for some time, so<br />

I’ve beenlearningasmuch<br />

as Ican.<br />

‘‘I’mreally lookingforward<br />

to the challenge.’’<br />

She has aBachelor of<br />

AgriculturalScience with<br />

honours fromLincoln<br />

University and runs an<br />

independent agricultural<br />

research trials business with<br />

her husband, Ben.<br />

The couplehave two<br />

children, Joe, aged3and<br />

Harriet, aged8months.<br />

‘‘Joeistractor crazy and I<br />

thinkit’s quite goodfor kids<br />

to see you in arole other<br />

than being aparent, so Itake<br />

them to meetings and<br />

working bees.<br />

‘‘We are pretty familyfriendly.<br />

‘‘A lot of our members have<br />

youngfamilies and bring<br />

theirkids along to meetings<br />

and days at thesite.’’<br />

Whilemost members<br />

graduated from New<br />

Zealand YoungFarmers,<br />

Michaela followed aslightly<br />

different path.<br />

‘‘I was working for<br />

Seedforce and the engineer<br />

who was fixing thethingsI<br />

kept breakingwas on the<br />

organising committee, so he<br />

askedmeifIwould get<br />

involved.’’<br />

That was nine years ago<br />

and she has held various<br />

roles, including helpingout<br />

on the gate and car parking,<br />

organising the agriinnovation<br />

awards, catering,<br />

and running the lifestyle<br />

section.<br />

‘‘Sometimes you’vegot to<br />

take on the challengeand<br />

see how you go. The main<br />

thingishaving the support of<br />

the committee and we have a<br />

committee of 25 volunteers<br />

and they’re all such hard<br />

workers.They get stuck in<br />

and they allenjoy doing it.’’<br />

Michaela would like to see<br />

more women get involved.<br />

‘‘Theethos is on professional<br />

development through the<br />

planningand organisingof<br />

the event, so it’s such agreat<br />

opportunity.’’<br />

Michaela saysover the<br />

next few months she would<br />

like to investigatethe<br />

The <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> <strong>News</strong>, <strong>October</strong> <strong>24</strong>, <strong>2019</strong><br />

SCAR funding to assist with falling land<br />

33<br />

Farmers in the Hurunui and Kaikoura<br />

districts dealing with erosion­prone land<br />

are eligiblefor funding to help assist them<br />

in reducing movement of sediment down<br />

hillsides and into waterways.<br />

Co­funded by Environment <strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

and the Ministry for Primary Industries,<br />

and working closelywith other groups<br />

such as the Hurunui District Land Care<br />

Group and the Post Quake Farminggroup<br />

in Kaikoura, the SCARproject (Soil<br />

Conservationand Regeneration) aims to<br />

help farmers with erosion­prone land<br />

carry out planting, retire hillsides in<br />

native vegetation, refine mapping<br />

resources and create strong working<br />

relationships and shared learning spaces.<br />

‘‘Stabilisingthe hillside and reverting<br />

Targeting nitrogen<br />

areas back to their natural stateprovides<br />

arange of benefits for the surrounding<br />

area and wider environment, such as the<br />

ETS, carbon credits,enhancing stream<br />

health, benefiting mahinga kai, increasing<br />

bee habitat and biodiversitycorridors, and<br />

maybe even increasing opportunities in<br />

the tourism sector,’’ says Andrew Arps,<br />

ECan zone manager.<br />

Localfarmer, councillor and Kaikoura<br />

Water ZoneCommittee member Tony<br />

Blunt, hosted afield day on his property<br />

recently.<br />

Around 30 people attended,all<br />

interested in seeingthe SCAR project in<br />

action.<br />

‘‘Our SCAR plantings should<br />

significantly reduce soil loss to waterways<br />

from earthquake damage to the steep hilly<br />

parts of our property. Thepoles are<br />

beneficialinkeeping the hill on thehill,<br />

especiallywhen it comestoretaining<br />

valuable topsoil on these areas. The trees<br />

will helpgrow our soil carbon,increase<br />

the soilswater holding capacity,produce<br />

beneficialsoil biomassand furtherreduce<br />

the effects of drought,’’ Tony says.<br />

‘‘So far we have planted 600 poplar poles<br />

on 12 hectares of land, none of whichwill<br />

be retired. We aim to plant another 20­30<br />

hectares as poles become available, and<br />

an additional 50 hectaresinnatives that<br />

will be retired.Wewill be abletoreceive<br />

carbon credits and still be able to graze it.<br />

‘‘On top of this, we will be able to<br />

coppice the trees and harvest more poles<br />

for future planting and thin them alittle<br />

for stock feed during adrought,’’ Tony<br />

says. ‘‘Through SCAR, we have saved over<br />

$7000 so far, bringing the cost down per<br />

pole and protector from around $16 to<br />

$4.40.<br />

Mr Arps is pleasedwith the progress of<br />

the project, but aims to raisemore<br />

awarenessfor how farmerscan seek<br />

assistance. ‘‘Whatweare finding is that<br />

farmers are wanting the opportunity to<br />

implement this programme over more<br />

than one year, whichisfantastic,’’ he says.<br />

‘‘We are hoping to spread the word<br />

about the range of benefits resulting from<br />

this programme, andreally want to ensure<br />

we reach farmers who are facing erosion<br />

challenges butaren’t sure whattodo.’’<br />

FarmersPaul and Ann Jarman<br />

run Essendon,a400­hectare<br />

dairy farm at Greendale, in<br />

central <strong>Canterbury</strong>.<br />

SupplyingWestland Milk<br />

Products, Essendon is milking<br />

860 cross­bred cowsand<br />

includes afully self­contained<br />

block for winteringand<br />

growing out young stock. About<br />

two­thirdsofthe 400haisa<br />

milking platform.<br />

The Jarmans areconnected<br />

to Stage 2ofthe CentralPlains<br />

Water (CPW), ahigh­pressure,<br />

piped irrigation scheme<br />

covering much of central<br />

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

Sustainability and<br />

minimisingthe environmental<br />

footprint of the farm is thekey<br />

driver to decision­making<br />

regarding farm management<br />

practices. Essendon is<br />

monitoring some paddocks<br />

weeklytoget an accurate fix on<br />

moisture and irrigation<br />

requirements to minimise<br />

nitrate losses.<br />

Working withtheir contract<br />

milker, Paul and Ann are also<br />

using CRV Ambreedgeneticsto<br />

helpreducethe farm’s nitrogen<br />

footprint. The companyhas<br />

research indicating LowN<br />

Sires genetics couldcut a<br />

farmer’s nitrate losses by 20<br />

percent over several<br />

generationsofbreeding.<br />

CRV Ambreed’s LowN Sires<br />

programme is based on<br />

breeding dairy cows with lower<br />

levels of milk urea, whichis<br />

expected to reduceurinary<br />

nitrogen.<br />

Paulsaid he was preparedto<br />

invest in the genetics, knowing<br />

the importanceofreducing<br />

their nitrogen footprint under<br />

planning regulations. He<br />

likened opting for LowNSires<br />

to Merinobreeding, the career<br />

he pursuedpassionatelybefore<br />

starting adairy conversion in<br />

2013.<br />

‘‘You get agood fineflockby<br />

measuring, testing and<br />

weighing.The same is true for<br />

yourapproachtothe dairy<br />

industry;you’vegot to have<br />

good, objective,performancebased<br />

selectionofsires.And<br />

that’s where the whole AI in<br />

New Zealand comes from.’’<br />

Theystarted using bulls from<br />

the LowN Sires programme<br />

two years ago,soon afteritwas<br />

launched. The firstyearling<br />

calves fromLowN Sires will be<br />

on the groundfor mating this<br />

yearand they areconfident it<br />

willhelp them to hittheir<br />

Paul and Ann Jarman<br />

targets for nitrogen reduction.<br />

‘‘It’s part of along­time<br />

project to achieve what we<br />

want to achieve over what’s<br />

probably a20­yearperiod.In<br />

the fullness of time, it could be<br />

quitehelpful,’’ Paul says.<br />

CRV Ambreed head<br />

geneticist Phil Beatson says a<br />

dairycow ate about 180kg of<br />

nitrogenayearasplant<br />

protein.About30kg endedup<br />

as milkand alittle bit to body<br />

maintenance andgrowth. Of<br />

the remainder, about 75­80kg<br />

was excretedasurinary<br />

nitrogenand the restwas<br />

excretedasfaeces.<br />

On averagearound 20%<br />

(16kg) of this urinary nitrogen<br />

endedupbeing leached into<br />

groundwater.<br />

Importantly,asmallamount<br />

of the nitrogeninurineis<br />

converted to nitrous oxide—a<br />

long­lasting greenhouse gas.<br />

Reducing urinary nitrogen was<br />

critical to reducing both<br />

leaching and greenhouse gas<br />

emissions, Mr Beatson says.<br />

As CPW shareholders,<br />

Essendon operates under a<br />

company­auditedfarm<br />

managementplan. The owners<br />

and their manager were<br />

pleasedtoreceive an Agrade<br />

firstup, with no<br />

recommendations.<br />

‘‘Now, with pivot technology<br />

on mostofthe farm, we can<br />

applythesesmall amounts<br />

little and often.Aslong as you<br />

haven’tgot water leaching<br />

through the soil profile, there’s<br />

avery good chance you haven’t<br />

got any nitrogenleaching<br />

through,’’Paul says.<br />

With irrigationplans under<br />

control,the remaining risk for<br />

nitrate leaching is in winter,<br />

when there’s higher rainfall.<br />

The farm had also been using<br />

plantaininits pasture and had<br />

a‘‘little and often’’ approach to<br />

fertiliser use,based on Lincoln<br />

University dairy farm results.<br />
