Stu’scan-do attitude

His 20­metre by 12­metre

They are also fast taking over

And every singlecan is

He alsohas whatisprobably

even drink Guinness.

‘‘Istarted collecting cans in

Pressure paid off

Our community kept up the pressure for

after­hours health provision and the

announcement we’re getting asevenday,

integrated family health service to

provide after­hours healthcare in the

Waimakariri is agreat win.

Many areas would have given up, I’m

sure.

From the beginning, with campaigners

like Paula Thackwell, right up to my

public meeting this year where Sandi

and David McLean and Ipresented our

community’s petition to the Canterbury

District Health Board (CDHB), we have

stood together on this issue.

There has been some hard work and

important milestones we’ve crossed

along the way.

We had our first win at my public

meeting in 2016 when the CDHB

announced it would start working with

our community stakeholders to look at

expanding after­hours provision and

what that would look like.

As local MP, Isee my role as fighting

for infrastructure solutions to match our

growth. We have increasing numbers of

young families moving into our area and

agrowing population of seniors choosing

to make their home in Waimakariri.

It makes sense we would be eligible

for after­hours health provision closer to

where we live.

No surprise, then, that more than

10,500 residents put their names on our

petition. We look forward to the new

facility opening in 2020/21.

North Canterbury residents packed

Loo feedback

Residents are being asked

about their preferred location

for new toilets to finish off the

Tirikatene Reserve in

Silverstream, Kaiapoi.

Three locations have been

identified for toilet facilities

beside the reserve. The

Waimakariri District Council

wants to know which one will

work best for the community.

Feedback will go to the

Kaiapoi Tuahiwi Community

Board for afinal decision.

To learn more, visit

waimakariri.govt.nz/have­asay/lets­talk

the Oxford Town Hall for my Water and

Rural Issues public meeting with

National’s agriculture spokesperson

and Bay of Plenty MP Todd Muller.

Our rural sector is resilient and has

proved more than capable of adapting to

new technologies, but we need to ensure

they get the right tools and support as

they navigate the Government’s complex

proposals to meet new freshwater and

climate­change targets.

We need sustainable rural

communities and better environmental

outcomes, and Todd told the audience

that, with the right support, our rural

sector can produce both.

Accurate, on­farm data to manage

emissions is going to be essential and we

support acomprehensive roll­out of

farm plans across the sector.

Around 60 percent of New Zealand’s

exports come from agriculture and we

know from experience that when our

farmers do well, we do well.

It was aday for country to come to

town at the Rangiora A&P Show and we

had aperfect Canterbury day for it.

Ienjoy catching up with everyone at

the show with my wife and children.

Well done to the organisers for another

well­run event.

My over­60s coffee mornings have

come to an end for this year. Isent an

invitation to every resident in the

electorate over the age of 60 to come and

enjoy acuppa and achat with me on

Monday mornings. Thank you to all who

attended.

Focus from Dan Gordon, Mayor

Help from police much appreciated

Dear Editor,

Recently, Ihave had dealings

with the police. One was the

theft of my security light bulbs.

(Yes, hard to believe as they

were working and would have

been warm).

They were stolen right from

outside my front door.

My son reported it and the

next day ayoung policewoman

and policeman appeared at my

door. It was aSunday.

They were so nice and

courteous to me. They looked

all around my house. Idid not

expect much as they were only

$20 to replace.

The next time my computer

on my car malfunctioned on a

roundabout, so you can imagine

the build­up of traffic behind

me.

Luckily, apolice car was

coming down the road. Iwaved

and and he did au­turn to come

to my aid.

Handbagshanded

over forcharity

By DAVID HILL

The Rangiora Lionesses are offering

hope in ahandbag.

More than 250 items, including

handbags and toiletries,were delivered

to Compass FM on Friday to pass on to

those in need as part of the Handbags for

Hope appeal.

Rangiora Lionesses secretary Rachel

Bloomfield says the items are what a

woman would needwhen staying away

from home and are passed on to

organisations such as Aviva (women’s

refuge), the Salvation Army and the

OxfordCommunity Trust.

The group has been supporting

Compass FM in the project for around 12

months.

Compass FM content managerSteph

McDonald says backpacks for men and

schoolbags with goodies for children are

also collected.

‘‘We gave some school bags out awhile

ago after afamily lost pretty much

everything in ahouse fire in arental, so

the children had something to taketo

dad’s for the weekend.’’

She saysthe handbags make abig

difference to people going through a

difficult time.

The Rangiora Lionesses group has

been going for 34 years. It has more than

30 members and is one of only five

Lionesses groups still active in the South

Island.

Threefundraising raffles are held each

year for mother’s day, father’sday and

Christmas, as well as quiz nights,selling

cheese rolls and booksales, Rachel says.

‘‘We try to get involved in local

community projects.

‘‘We have 12 main groups that we

contributeto, but we wanttobemore

hands­on with peopleand to helppeople

in need.’’

Fundsare put aside for youth projects,

with the Lionesses making an annual

donation to RangioraHigh School to

assist those struggling to affordschool

shoes, and alocal student was recently

supported to go on the Spirit of Adventure.

The group meets at the Rangiora RSA

every second Wednesday of the month for

ameal and aguestspeaker.

It hosts acraft meetingevery Monday

and has regular social lunches.

‘‘We need some younger members. We

are women only, but all women are

welcome and it’s agreat way to meet new

people,’’Rachel says.

‘‘It’s hard to get new people, because

most people are working and they are

working for longer.’’

Anyone interestedinjoining can

contact Rachel on (03) 313 1113.

Sports Trust and led by master

of ceremonies Jendy Harper,

celebrated the region’s best

sporting talent.

Kazuma was unable to be on

hand to accept the Supreme

Award as he was playing in a

tournament in Auckland, but

spoke via video of being

honoured to be named the

winner.

He said, to date, the highlight

of his chosen career was

winning the New Zealand

Professional Golfers

Association (NZ PGA)

Championship at Pegasus

earlier this year.

The Rangiora High School

17­year­old, who caddied for

himself at the tournament, won

by four shots with a21­under

267 tournament total, winning

the Sir Bob Charles Trophy as

the leading New Zealand

player, but not the winner’s

purse of $125,000 because of his

amateur status.

Kazumo stressed the support

from the Rangiora Golf Club

and Pegasus Golf &Sports Club

as being integral to his success.

Kazuma had earlier taken out

the N.F. Preen Contracting

Sportsman award.

The awards evening

celebrated everything from dog

trialling, sailing,

mountainbiking, croquet and

basketball, to rugby, cricket,

crossfit, archery, golf and

athletics.

Dan ponders some

new mayoral wheels

By SHELLEY TOPP

Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon had his

eye on aclassy line­up of Mustangs in

North Canterbury last Sunday.

The mayor, who is aself­confessed

petrolhead from way back, attends the

American Classic Car Club’s annual

Canterbury USA Day every year, but was

an invited guest at this year’s event, held

last Sunday at Woodend’s Gladstone

Park.

‘‘I’ve been abig car fan ever since I

was asmall boy,’’ he said. ‘‘I love the

Mustangs.’’

He joked that aMustang would make a

fine mayoral car, before quickly adding

that no money was budgeted for one, so

it would have to be apersonal purchase.

Dan also admired asix­seater, eightcylinder

convertible 1934 Buick 68C

owned by Owen Frew, of Fernside.

The gleaming, immaculately

presented Buick won the Best in Show

award at the event.

Dan thought it would also make a

classy mayoral car.

The Buick is one of only five still

registered worldwide.

The annual show was held in hot,

sunny weather with alarge crowd,

thought to be arecord, turning out for

the event.

The day focuses on American­made

vehicles, cars, pick­up trucks and

motorbikes.

The family­oriented day drew about

650 vehicles, ranging from the 1920s to

present­day models.

There was also live music by Sign of

the Firebird.

It was the club’s 28th anniversary and,

to celebrate, members decided to raise

money on the day for the Ronald

McDonald House charity.

Club treasurer Jimmi Anderson said

on Monday it was too early to confirm the

exact amount the club would raise, but

the gate tally had been bigger than usual

and they were hoping to be able to

donate $4000 or more.

Kahikatea forest

to be established

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Kahikatea trees have beenplanted

upstream of the Kate Pond wetland in

Tiromoana Bush, in the first stage of

establishing akahikatea forest.

It is part of theambitious restoration

project beingundertaken by Transwaste

Canterbury ,which owns TiromoanaBush

and the adjoining landfill in Kate Valley.

Transwastechairwoman Gill Cox says

annual treeplanting is akey part of

restoringthe native foreststotheiroriginal

condition.

‘‘While we’ve fenced Tiromoana Bush to

keep out pests such as deer and goats who

were damaging the existingnative bush,

we’vealso hadtohelp alongthe

regeneration processwith annualtreeplanting,’’

he says.

‘‘Since therestoration project beganin

2004,we’ve planted thousands of native

treestokick­startnatural regeneration.

‘‘As many of the plantings are now

producing theirown seedlings, it looks as

though we’ve beensuccessful.’’

Kahikatea were first plantednear Kate

Pond morethan 10 years ago.They are now

4to5metrestall.

Dr David Norton, aprofessorfrom the

University of Canterbury’s Te Kura

Ngahere, SchoolofForestry, says the

successfulplanting has led to afocus on

creating akahikatea forestand wetland

around Kate Pond.

Dr Norton, who wrotethe Tiromoana

Bush RestorationManagement Plan in 2004

and provides ongoing advice to

Transwasteonthe bush restoration

project, says the aim is to establish amixed

kahikatea forest­wetlandsystem,restoring

aregionallyrare habitat for arangeof

native fauna.

‘‘We assume birds including kereruand

korimako help disperse planted species

Service, plants aseedling near Kate Pond.

more widely through TiromoanaBush.

‘‘Therefore it’s important to ensure trees

provide sufficientfood resources to

sustain these species.

‘‘This meansplantingngaio, totara,

karamu and other speciesfor fruit on the

valley slopes, while on the valley floor

adjacent to Kate Pond we are plantingflax/

harakekeand manuka for nectar,and

kahikatea,cabbage tree/ti koukaand other

appropriate species for fruit.’’

Plantingisusually scheduled for latewinter/spring

afterthe worst of the frosts

and to takeadvantage of soilmoisture

beingatapeak.

Dr Nortonsays preparation is essential.

‘‘Thevalley floor was usedfor grazing, so

it’s covered withpasture grasses,

especially cocksfoot. These grasses have to

be sprayedwith herbicides prior to

planting.

‘‘We plant eachtree by hand,usually

spaced 1m to 1.5m apart. Fertilisertabs

are placed in planting holes and water

retentioncrystals are usedatsites likely to

dry out in summer.’’

Post­plantingmaintenance involves

herbicide application or hand weeding.

More than1000 more kahikateatrees,

alongwith other appropriate species,will

be planted in latewinter/early spring of

2020 on the valleyfloor by Kate Pond to

continuecreating the mixed kahikatea

forest and wetland.

ServiceIQ,while volunteering at Hope

Hope Trustvolunteers Julie Cloughley

and Trace Graham, who are registered

‘‘They volunteer in the shopand we have

some separate classes, and when they’re

‘‘It takes up to fourmonths to qualify.’’

She saysthere is amix of Rangiora New

Artistic touch for mayor’soffice

By DAVID HILL

Art is adorning Dan Gordon’s office,

thanks to the Waimakariri Art

Collection Trust.

The new Waimakariri mayor has

decorated the mayoral office with

artworks on loan from the trust.

‘‘I will collect some of my own over

time, but it’s nice to have these artworks

which are generously on loan from the

trust.’’

Mr Gordon says his personal favourite

is apainting of the Waimakariri

landscape by former Waikuku artist

John Coley.

He has long had apersonal interest in

art, having studied art and art history at

school, including doing oil painting.

He continued with his interest in art

history while studying at the University

of Canterbury, and this interest has seen

him work to ‘‘see the arts supported

more in the district’’.

Over the years he has helped to

establish the Kaiapoi Art Expo and the

Oxford Art Gallery.

‘‘The Kaiapoi Art Expo was only

supposed to last for acouple of years,

but now it’s one of the major dates in the

arts calendar.

Art appreciation ... Waimakariri Mayor

Dan Gordon admires alandscape of the

Waimakariri district by former Waikuku

artist John Coley, which now adorns his

office.

‘‘And we are so lucky in this district

that we have so many events that allow

people to appreciate art and to buy

artworks at an affordable level.’’

Contenders ... The white heron, left, and bellbird are among nominees.

Voting for Forest and Bird’s annual

Perfectly preened

gardens adelight

Aweekend of fantastic weather played

its part in attracting record crowds to

the annual Hurunui Garden Festival.

Twenty­three gardens from Amberley

to Hanmer Springs, and Hawarden to

Gore Bay, opened for the three­day

garden festival from November 1to3.

Early indications are visitor numbers

were up on last year, with Saturday a

particularly busy day for many gardens.

Events held in gardens proved

extremely popular with visitors. More

than 200 people visited Waihui on

Saturday to enjoy the band Alpine

Echoes and adisplay of classic Jags from

the Christchurch Drivers’ Club.

The two special tours arranged for

2019, the Woodchester Walls and

Waterfalls bus tour and the Hidden Gems

in the Lowry Hills self­drive tour were

both popular, with some people doing

both tours over the weekend.

The Hidden Gems tour was an

adventure, with an hour­long drive over

the range from Lou and Tim Davison’s

Wynyard, inland from Culverden, to

Debbie and Stuart Anderson’s Black

Rock gardens, nestled in the Kaiwara

Valley.

Drivers were treated to spectacular

views, and some interesting gradients,

streams and farm gates to open and shut.

On arrival lunch was served, with

visitors seated in the shady spots in the

garden. After awander around the

garden, the tour moved on to

Ribbonwood Country House, north over

the Waiau River valley toward Mt

Parnassus and the Seaward Kaikouras

to wind up the day.

Acting festival chairwoman Meg

Macfarlane says there is no doubt the

spectacular weather encouraged people

to venture out over the weekend.

‘‘Visitors weren’t even deterred by the

heat on Sunday, though garden seats

strategically placed in the shade were

very popular.’’

As well as the many events,

exhibitions and stalls in gardens, Meg

says feedback from visitors was

unanimous about how much they valued

meeting the garden owners.

‘‘While visitors enjoyed each garden

for its individuality and diversity, they

loved meeting us,’’ Meg says.

‘‘It seems we’re fast becoming the

‘friendly garden tour’, which is

tremendously rewarding for us since it’s

what we set out to do —tocreate an

event that really made visitors feel

welcomed to the district. It’s great to

know we’re succeeding.’’

Planning for next year’s event begins

later this month, when the date for 2020

will be set.

Fete paddock, before departing on the next leg of the Hidden Gems tour.

Black Rock ... Debbie Anderson in her garden nestled in the Kaiwara Valley, surrounded

by mature trees, with an abundance of colourful perennials, including many varieties of

euphobia, iris, penstemon, peony, salvia, and tulip, some of which are grown from seed.

Top view ... The Kaiwara Road, part of the Hidden Gems tour, stretches west into the

floribunda, hybrid­teas, climbers, old­fashioned and David Austen varieties. Music and

classic cars also entertained guests in the garden near Rotherham.

Spring sun and rain the perfect recipe

By DAVID HILL

NorthCanterbury farmers are

cautiously optimistic about

theseason ahead.

Plenty of springrainand hot,

sunnylate­springweather

means farmersare setupfor a

good season,with many

beginningtomake some hay,

baleageand silage whilethe

sunshines, Federated

Farmers arablechairman

RoscoeTaggart says.

‘‘At themoment it feels like

we are setupfairly well. Last

year we had alot of dreary

days in the spring andthena

drysummer, but so far this

seasonwe’vehad good

amounts of rainand plenty of

suninbetween.’’

TheCust farmersaidhewas

unfazed by hot temperatures

of 30­plusdegreesatthe

beginningofNovember.

‘‘They saythat crops don’t

reallygrow over 26 degrees, so

really, reallyhot temperatures

aren’tfantastic,but that comes

at this time of year.

‘‘Butitdepends on where

your farm is locatedand what

sort of farm youhave.’’

Farmers on irrigationcould

offset any moisture loss, but

fordryland farmers hot days

couldmean thelossof

moisture.

‘‘But, to be honest,aside

from thepressures of new

nutrientand freshwater

policies,peopleare quietly

optimistic,though theprices

forour crops could be higher,’’

Mr Taggart says.

‘‘It’s easy to say ‘it’s going

well’.I’vebeenoptimistic the

last fewyearsand thenthere’s

somethingthatcomesalong

andsquashes us.’’

He says weather forecasts

forthe summer ahead have

predicted‘‘anaverage

season’’,but what is ‘‘average’’

in today’senvironment is open

❛It’s easy to say ‘it’s

going well’. I’ve been

optimistic the last few

years and then there’s

something that comes

along and squashes

us.❜

—Roscoe Taggart

to interpretation.

‘‘Wecan probablyexpect

similarweathertowhat we’ve

had,but withlessrain.’’

Mr Taggart says he still has

somehemptoput in the

ground, but most arable

farmers would havealready

sowntheircrops.

‘‘There’s definitely some

growth around and there’s

somesilage being beingmade

all over the place.

‘‘I was talking to alocal

contractor theotherday and

while he said thework was

steady, they’renot rushedoff

their feet.’’

Omihi­basedcontractor Sam

Bethell says work has picked

up overthe last week for

cuttingbaleage.

‘‘Itwas abit frustrating

sittingaround waiting over the

lastthreetofour weeks,but

now we’re finallygettinginto

it.

‘‘The growthhas been slow,

but it’s certainly improving.

It’stoo early to sayifit’s going

For all your Silage,

Baleage, Hay & Straw

requirements

Sensible silage strategies ... Attention to detail will ensure stored silage will not harm the environment.

Feed storage solutions

need to stack up

Storing feed close to where it is needed

makessense, DairyNZsays.

Agood designwill help to reduce

spoilage from rodents or pooling water,

and prevent water pollution by capturing

toxicleachate and run­off.

Placement should also take the food

safety minimum distances into account.

Silage storage facilitiesshould be sited

on landthat is easily accessible (close to

the feed pad if you have one), is relatively

flat,atleast 45 metres fromany farmdairy,

and at least 50 metres fromwaterways,

open drains or dams, and the catchment

areasofbores.

It pays to site it further away if the land

is steep, soils are coarse textured, or

groundwater may enter sensitive

waterways.

Keep the silage bunker pit well away

from gullies or other places whererunoff

catchment watercan flow intothe storage

area.Ensure the site is not proneto

floodingorhas ahigh water table. It

should be away from any subsurface

drains.

The walls and floor of asilagebunker

must be capable of withstanding the hard

knocks of tractors and other machinery, as

well as resisting corrosionfrom leachate.

Concrete with awater/cement ratio of

less than 0.4:1 should be used. Aconcrete

floorshouldbe125mmthick and

reinforced if vehicles are usedonit.

The silage bunker floor should be

watertight and extend out beyond the

bunker walls. Construct anib wall along

the sides. This willkeep freshwater out

and leachate in.

Slope the floor 1:50 towardsadrainage

channellaid across the front of the bunker.

For bunkers cut into theside of ahill, an

impermeable surface is stillessential.

Concrete is best, but compacted clay may

be suitable. Check with the local council

for any requirements it may have.

Silage stacksonthe ground require a

sealedsurface withleachate directed to a

collectionpointand properly contained.

Ashallow cut­off trench aroundthe

stack will help preventwaterrun­offfrom

the paddock entering the stack.

All other stored feed is bestcontained in

aconcretebunker. At the very leastit

needs asealedsurface plus proper sides

and acover to keep rain and wind out, and

to controlleachate production.

Silageleachate is surplus water from

silage, which carries soluble sugars,

proteins and nutrientswith it as it seeps

out of the stack.

This leachate is acidic and can pollute

waterways.

It is around 40 times stronger thanfarm

dairy effluent and 200 times stronger than

raw domestic sewage.

It is corrosive and can damage concrete

and steel.

The judgeswere impressed withSpy

Valley’s 2013 riesling, commentingthat it

boasted a‘‘mouthwatering acidity and

freshness thatbelies its age’’, and

championedits intense aromasoffresh

lemon,making it amust for any summer

wine list.

The Two RiversJulietRiesling 2019

was named champion riesling. The

judgesnoted its fresh grapefruit notes.

Its spicy acidity was concentrated and

balanced,and the wine showed layers of

complexity.

Two Riversfounder and winemaker

DavidCloustonsaid the win was ‘‘a true

testament to the site and shows the

vineyard’sreal potential to make great

wines’’.

The Macvine champion Canterbury

BrownEstates’ 2019 Riesling.

The judgespraised its definition and

textural acidityand championed it as a

perfect exampleofariesling.

MountBrown director Catherine Keith

was ecstatic about the win.

‘‘This is the third trophy for our

riesling in as many years, so we are very

excited about it.

‘‘Making agreat wine consistently,

across vintages, is very hard to do, but a

smallfamily­owned vineyard in the heart

of North Canterbury is doing just that.’’

The judgeswere impressed withthe

high quality of wines on offer in both

competitions,awarding 22 golds,62

silvers and 104 bronzes, Mr Harré said.

‘‘Theblind judgingprocess ensures

DTS

North Canterbury News, November 7, 2019

Tru-Test Dairy Solutions rebranded as DTS

Trevor Green

In amove going back to the future, DTS

is the new brand name for Tru­Test

Dairy Solutions.

Canterbury and Marlborough area

bright look for the company, but also

ushers in anew direction.

‘‘DTS has always been synonymous

with quality stainless steel milk vats,

farm holding tanks (FHTs), as well as

milk refrigeration systems,’’ he says.

Trevor has aDiploma in Agriculture

and also one in Farm Management

from Lincoln University, and owns a

small farm near Christchurch.

‘‘Our Normanby plant in Taranaki,

which manufactures 95% of FHTs in

New Zealand, has always been known

as Dairy Technology Services.’’

The new brand’s strapline is ‘‘Growth

Through Innovation’’ which signifies

DTS’s continued move into providing

effective milk­vat and herd­monitoring

software solutions.

Through its nationwide network of

sales and service teams, it has a

contract to supply farm holding tanks

to Fonterra Co­op farmers right around

New Zealand. It is also commissioned

to supply FHTs to other dairy industry

players such as Synlait, Open Country,

Westland and Tatua.

DTS’s milk­cooling product range

includes high performing refrigeration

units for pre­cooling milk before the

FHT, FHT refrigeration, and FHT

insulation wraps.

DTS is also aleader in remote onfarm

monitoring. It’s Vat­Man solution

provides acomprehensive vat

management software solution,

measuring and reporting on milk

temperature as it first enters the FHT,

and then as it is refrigerated, as well as

milk volumes and agitation.

All data is communicated via smart

devices, complete with automated

alerts.

Herd­Man is DTS’s dairy automation

solution, which includes manual and

autodrafting, walk­over weighing, feed

control, in­bail identification and

inline milk sensors —all run off smart

devices.
