Pipeline to future ­growth locked in

By John Keast

Ashburton council has been thanked

for its foresight in replacing ­ahead

of time ­akey piece of wastewater

infrastructure.

Peter Seipp, managing director of

Seipp Construction, contracted to

future­proof the Ashburton wastewater

system by replacing a small

pipe that runs under the Ashburton

River, said many councils waited

until work like that was urgent, but

Ashburton was ahead of its time in

doing the work now and building in

capacity for the future.

That showed respect for the community

and the environment.

Mr Seipp spoke at a blessing

ceremony on the south side of the

river ­and the work is now under

way.

The $7m project began on Monday

and will take about 14 months.

The work will affect sections of the

Ashburton­Lake Hood cycle trails.

The project involves a 1100mm

pipe, more than twice the size of the

existing pipe, put under the river, and

connecting to anew pump station to

be built near the wastewater plant at

Tinwald.

The pumping station will be as big

as a three­storey building and be

underground.

It will have four pumps big enough

to shift all the water in the EA

Networks Centre in about 15

minutes.

Council’s service delivery group

manager Neil McCann said the

project would provide for Ashburton’s

growth and meet population

needs.

‘‘We’re very pleased to be delivering

this necessary upgrade. It will

future.’’

Ashburton council project manager

Shyamal Ram said the existing

pipeline was put in in the 1970s and

needed to be renewed.

Preparation work had taken

months.

At its deepest part, the pipe would

be 8m below ground level.

He said the pipe and pump station

had adesign life of 100 years.

The blessing was performed by

Tewera King, of Arowhenua, and

mayor Neil Brown sunk aspade into

ground near where the pump station

will be built to signal to start of the

development.

Though the Ashburton/Hakatere

River Trail on the northern side of

the river would remain open for

much of the project, minor closures

were expected.

Asection of the Ashburton­Lake

Hood Trail (on the southern side)

will be closed near the construction

site at Boundary Road.

People will be directed to use a

detour via Grahams Road and Grove

Farm Road.

Dip in the bowl and achairman is selected

By Mick Jensen

Democracy was in action from the

first minute of Monday’s Methven

Community Board’s (MCB) meeting,

with two ballots needed to decide the

chairman and deputy chairman roles.

At the first meeting of the new

term, new Western Ward councillor

Rodger Letham proposed first­time

board memberKelvin Holmes for the

chairman role, while fellow councillor

Liz McMillan backed previous­term

chairman Dan McLaughlin.

Mr Letham was seconded by Ron

Smith, while Sonia McAlpine gave

her vote to McLaughlin, meaning

voting was tied at3­3.

Afteraquickphone calltoAshburton

council for policy confirmation, it

was left to senior council manager

and acting meeting chair Jane

Donaldson to draw aname outofthe

hat, in this case abowl, todecide the

chairman.

Mr McLaughlin’s name wasdrawn.

The same process was repeated

with the deputy chairman role, with

Kelvin Holmes this time upagainst

Sonia McAlpine.

Mrs McAlpine’s name was drawn.

Ms Donaldson had the option

under delegated authority to choose a

candidate for each role, but was not

comfortable with making those decisions.

After general consensus around

the table, it was decided that name

drawing was the best option.

A coin toss, which was used

recently to decide the final place on

theQueenstown LakesDistrict Council,

was also considered, but ruled out.

Aby­election will be held tofind a

fifth MCB board member, after just

four candidates stood at the October

election.

Day at the races down on farm

By Toni Williams

Greenstreet dairy

glamour this week.

The farming couple

Call for water impact study

Government must commission an independent

study to identifythe social and economic impactsof

the proposed Action for Healthy Waterways, an

Ashburton council submission says.

The hard­hitting submission has been prepared

under urgency to meet the Government’s tight

submission deadline of October 31.

The council has implored the Government in

futuretoplan and prepare for ‘‘longer engagement

periods’’ on issues that had broad implications.

‘‘Council is highly concerned with the timing of

this consultation. From alocal government perspective,

the August­October period of the triennium

leading into local body elections can be a

difficult and politically charged time. When

considered more broadly from arural economy

perspective, this time of year is already demanding

for dairy, sheep, cropping and beef industries.

‘‘Add to this the pressure of proposals with farreaching

implications, ashas been suggested, we

consider it entirely predictable the discussion has

been largely negative,’’ the submission said.

Council said the missing assessment of the

impact ofthe proposals on the local economy is

‘‘most concerning for our district’’.

‘‘History has taught us that when farming

sneezes, Ashburton District catches acold.’’

It said that before proceeding further, ‘‘we

believe that the Government must commission a

thorough independent study to identify the

economic and social impactsthat implementing the

FWPS would have.’’

At the broadest level, council saw that livelihoods

of someinthe community could be affected.

‘‘Many inour community are employed in jobs

that are either directly or indirectly connected to

the agricultural industry.’’

It said the district had been affectedbyM.bovis,

and council was also concerned the community

would face additional and compounding pressures

as aresult of the freshwater proposals that could

impact on resilience and wellbeing.

The proposals would also have significant

impacts oncouncils toupgrade infrastructure for

drinking water, wastewater and stormwater and

rate increases were inevitable.

‘‘For our rural sector, weare concerned about

the absence of meaningful economic impact

analysis on farming systems in the discussion

document. Case studies that are included in the

proposals are not representative of Mid Canterbury

farmingoperations and are limited in their analysis

of costs.’’

Council was also concerned areport prepared

for the Ministry for the Environment by Macfarlane

Rural Business Ltd was not included in the

discussion document.

The council acknowledged that many local

farmers and growers were at the forefront of

research and technology to advance environmentally

sustainablepractices, and noted the legalaction

that was taken byForest and Bird NZ and the

subsequent decision of the Office of Auditor

General to withdraw the exemption for Water

Zone Committee members to participate freely in

discussions threatened tounravel the collaborative

structures that had supported the Canterbury

Water Management Strategy.

Funds in for hot pools

Methven’s Opuke Thermal

Pools & Spa project is

moving a step closer to

reality with the $7.5 million

capital raising now completed.

A land sale agreement

with MethvenTrotting Club

has now also gone unconditional

and a subdivision

has been granted.

The developed design

stage ofthe project has also

been completed and the

next major milestone will be

the commencement of site

preparationand plant building

construction in December.

The main building

detailed design work is

expected to be signed off in

January.

been selected as the principal

builder on the project.

The $15 million hot pools

project was given a major

funding boost with a

$7.5million loan from the

Government’s Provincial

Growth Fund in February.

The Opuke Thermal

Pools &Spa project is being

driven byMethven Adventures

and will have three

very separate experiences;

affordable family bathing,

adult exclusive bathing, and

high quality spa therapies.

Murray Harrington from

chair, and Rainer Irrigationfounder

and property

developer Les Briggs is also

new on the board.

Former Methven Adventures

board members James

McKenzie, Andrew Cartwright

and Lloyd Robinson

will head up the project

In this short report, nothing is watered down

Former Ashburton councillor

Peter Reveley

warned new councillors

that much of their work

in the coming term would

involve water.

He was right, and

much of the work of

previous councils has also

involved water.

The first major report

to hit the desk of new

councillors was the council’s

submission to government

on proposed

freshwater reforms.

It pulls no punches.

The document first, as

is the way of these things,

Courier comment

sets out afew facts and

figures about Ashburton,

agrees with the principle

of improving water ­noone

is going to argue

against that ­ and then

says: ‘‘Council is highly

concerned with the timing

elections can be adifficult

Methven’s new skatepark

project is heading for apre

The project has been

Bank and McMillan streets.

It will provide a dedicated

space for local kids

and young people toskate

all year round, after the

building that housed a

privately­owned indoor

skatepark in Methven was

damaged.

It was hoped to have the

skatepark completed by

December 21.

farmer would disagree ­

that that is also ademanding

time for farming.

Council then goes further,

imploring the Government

in future to

‘‘plan and prepare for

longer engagement

periods’’.

For that, read: don’t

rush usin future.

There is more.

The council then said

that before the Government

does anything

more, it ‘‘must commission

athorough independent

study toidentify

the economic and social

impacts’’ thatimplementing

the proposals would

have.

The proposed reforms

will affect all.

This is not just ‘‘something

for the farm’’.

The submission says it

believes rate rises will be

inevitable as councils

upgrade infrastructure

for drinking water, wastewater

and stormwater.

It some areas, the bill

could be big.

The submission also

says that key agriculture

businesses could be significantly

affected by the

proposed targets.

Together, those businesses

contribute $603m

to the district’s gross

domestic product.

The freshwater

reforms are proposals; an

independent advisory

panel will provide Government

Ministers with a

report on consultation

submissions, and will

include recommendations.

At the first meeting,

councillors ran their eyes

over the council submission,

one from ECan

and another from the

Canterbury mayoral

forum.

All follow similar

themes.

That these bodies (and

others) got the material

together toprepare submissions

inthe straitened

timeframe is remarkable,

but the Ashburton council

was never going to let

the (short) opportunity

pass.

Preparing the submission

was apriority.

What must be awaited

now is the Government’s

response to the submissions

­and there will be

many.

Most are agreed something

needs to be done.

The big question is

what, when, and the cost.

­John Keast

Fountain is back ­with afish

By Toni Williams

The McElhinney Water

Fountain, on the corner

of Havelock and West

streets in downtown Ashburton,

is again in top

working order after a

collaborative effort to

restore it.

It has spent many

seasons out of action.

The fountain, also a

drinking fountain, was

bequeathed to Ashburton

by the late Myra and Bob

McElhinney in the early

1980s. The couple, who

had a hairdressing business

on Tancred Street

and lived on Cameron

Street, had no children

and left $5000 to the

Ashburton community at

the death of Myra who

died in 1981; Bob died in

1977.

According to family

members at the time, Bob

wanted afountain tobe

near the war memorial as

he had served in war for

four and a half years.

After Myra’s death, two

bequests were made; one

was $2000 to maintain

and repair the town clock,

and the other for aconstruction

of a fountain.

The location and design

was finalised by a

Borough Council subcommittee

set up to handle

the request.

The fountain, designed

and executed by Hampton

Studios, of Christchurch,

was officially unveiled on

June 15, 1984.

In its time it was top of

the line,but of late has sat

idle and in need of attention.

Ashburton Contracting

Ltd (ACL) plumbing division

manager Aaron

Gairns remembered the

fountain from his childhood,

travelling past it

each day on the way to

primary school. It irked

him that it was not working.

‘‘If you see one fountain

on your best corner

not going, what do you

do?,’’especially for someone

working in water, he

said.

He approached the

Ashburton District Council

to set the wheels in

motion for its restoration.

And also contacted Ashburton

Museum to find

out more about the McElhinney’s

and the ‘‘benevolent

actions of a couple

who did so much for

Ashburton’’.

With ACL, Laser Electrical

and Throwin’ Shapes

Glass on board, their

charitable restoration

project got under way.

Mr Gairns said what

started as asimple project

was more involved than

first thought.

The brick work was

cleaned with a dry ice

compound to prevent

water blasting damage,

then covered in aprotective

coating, the drinking

tap changed, decking seat

replaced and the internal

workings sorted.

Laser Electrical manager

Brent Christie said in

the end a new water

pumping system was

installed as well as warm

LED strip lighting under

the fountain pools and

display flood lights.

Glass artist Tash Sim

crafted abespoke purple

tinged, with silver fleck,

glass salmon ­the result of

three separate firings at

812 degree temperatures ­

to adorn the frontage of

the fountain.

The salmon replacesan

existing copper mounted

salmon and was atribute

to Mr McElhinney’s

enjoyment of fishing.

The three businesses

efforts all came to aclose

at the restoration launch

last week with apush of a

button by St Joseph’s

School Year 7pupil Ben

Ciron. He got to be the

first to use the drinking

fountain in front of the

businesses involved, Ben’s

school peers and members

of the public. There

was also asausage sizzle.

Ben earned the right

after winning amini­quiz

about the fountain and its

restoration.

large rear garden and

vegetable patches.

The church has aregular

congregation of

around 20 for 10am

Anew carpet inside the

church has been funded

by a benefactor and is

being laid later this

month.

Mr Keen said he

started attending the

church four years ago and

fell in love with it and its

tranquil setting.

Helping to take care of

the church garden was a

real pleasure, he said.

Information workshop in wind

Aworkshop on information

available to Ashburton

resident and visitors

will beheld.

It cameatthe behest of

returning councillor

Angus McKay whomoved

successfully that ‘‘a workshop

on information

delivered to the people of

Ashburton and visitors

and how it fits into the

new CBD plan’’.

The motion, opposed

by Cr Stuart Wilson, came

after council discussed the

quarterly report of tourism

body Experience Mid

Canterbury.

General

manager

Bruce Moffat said only

three of80i­Sites in New

Zealand made money.

He said most people

booked online or found

out about an area by

searching online.

He said he had seen

people come into an

i­Site, make an inquiry,

then go outside, flip out a

phone and make abooking.

But Cr McKay, holding

out his phone, asked

where the information

was ­ he said he had

looked and could not find

it.

Mr Moffatwent to take

the phone to show him

the site, but mayor Neil

Brown said that might be

better outside the meeting.

Cr Lynette Lovett said

the workshop should also

include all groups that

provide information, such

as Presbyterian Support,

and not just council and

Experience Mid Canterbury.

Cr Stuart Wilson asked

if it was correct that when

the Ashburton i­Site

closed that the money

saved was added to the

budgetofExperience Mid

Canterbury.

The chairman, James

Urquhart, said that was

right, but the organisation,

then, was going

down a dark hole and

then became a councilcontrolled

organisation,

meaning itscosts wentup.

And council had been

reducing its budget by

$10,000 ayear every year.

‘‘We are going backwards,’’

Mr Urquhart

said.

Cr Wilson said he was

‘‘probably the author’’ of

that but surely the tourism

industry could make up

the difference.

‘‘What other industry is

subsidisedtothe extent of

tourism?’’

Mr Moffat said Experience

Mid Canterbury had

never made any money.

Cr Wilson said if the

body was ‘‘doing such a

wonderfuljob’’ whyaren’t

they (tourism businesses)

supporting you.

Mr Urquhart said they

were, and the discussion

was going in circles.

He said the district got

a good return on any

council money.

Cr Falloon said any

previous motions on the

subject should bebrought

to the workshop.

Councillor makes plea, MP son hears call

New Ashburton

councillorJohn

Falloon, an accountant,

has madeapleato

central government to

simplify the

requirements for

councils’ annualreports

­and his son Andrew,

the MP for Rangitata,

was there to herethe

call.

Mr Falloonisa

National MP, so would

havetotakeupthe case

fromthe Opposition

benches.

Mr Falloon saidthe

annualreport was a

longand complex

document anda

goldmine of

information if youknew

where to look, but he

feltsorry forthose who

put it together as they

hadtoworktodifferent

accounting standards.

He said MPs should

tellInternalAffairs

about thecomplex

nature of thejob and

thecoast of havingit

audited.

Mr Falloon said those

whoput it together

needed congratulating.

Mayor Neil Brownsaid

he was sure there would

be no staff argument.

Anglers flock to

high country lakes

Anglers flocked to the

Canterbury back country

in their hundreds as fine

weather heralded the

opening day of the high

country fishing season.

Conditions on the

lakes were beautiful with

warm fine weather providing

the perfect opportunity

for families to

spend the day fishing.

Such is the prestige

held by anglers for the

Canterbury high country

as a fishing destination

that anglers camefrom as

far away as Southland

and Auckland.

Some northern hemisphereanglers

also timed

their trip to New Zealand

to coincide with opening

weekend.

Over ahundred boats

were on Lake Coleridge

but shore­based anglers

were out in force and

both were reeling in the

fish.

Fish & Game delays

the opening ofthe high

country areas to fishing

for amonth so that late

spawning rainbow trout

have the opportunity to

spawn without being

disturbed.

On Saturday afternoon,

hundreds

converged onRyton Bay

for the prize giving of the

annual Lake Coleridge

Fishing Competition.

Therewas 265 entrants

competing for thousands

of dollars of prizes donated

by Hunting &Fishing

Tower Junction.

While there were

prizes for fish caught,

there were many more

spot prizes for entrants

of all age groups.

Fish &Game uses the

data gathered from the

fish caught to assess the

health of the fish population

in the lakes.

The lakes themselves

looked in good condition

with lake levels higher

than last year’s opening

following a good spring

snow melt.

Fish weighed in for the

competition looked

healthy and some fish

weredestined straight for

the barbecue after they

were measured.

Fish &Game Rangers

were out in force checking

that anglers were

licensed and following

the rules.

Apart from acouple of

anglers that had left their

licence at home, no

issues were detected.

The number of anglers

checked on lakes was up

compared to last year,

with some lakes having a

third more anglers on

them compared to last

year.

The Canterbury high

country lakesare so close

to Christchurch and easily

accessible bycar that

theyare aperfect spot for

aday trip.

Geraldine drop in session

on use of logburners

From 1 January 2020,

older style wood burners

can nolonger beused in

Geraldine clean air

zones, on properties

smaller than two hectares.

Older style burners

can be replaced with a

low or ultra­low emission

burner, and those

can be used with no

expiry date.

A drop in session is

scheduled atGeraldine

Library tomorrow

(November 8) from

12.30pm until 4.30pm

for residents to find out

moreabout the requirements,

subsidies and

other help available.

Drop­in sessions

were previously held at

the end of August in

both Geraldine and

Waimate, which is also

affected by the rule

change.

Environment Canterbury

(ECan) senior air

quality implementation

officer Mark Bourassa

said he was pleased

with how many people

from both communities

stopped by to havetheir

questions answered in

August.

‘‘We were able to provide

answers to many

questions from the communities

regarding

replacement log burners,

heat pumps, subsidies,

and Healthier Homes

Canterbury,’’ he said.

‘‘We’ve been carrying

out follow up visits to

people’s households

where needed, to help

them determine what

type of log burner is

currently in place, and

what action, ifany, they

need to take before the

deadline.

‘‘In one instance, we

were able to confirm for a

customer that they are

already using a lowemission

wood burner

and therefore don’t need

to take any action before

the 1January 2020 deadline.’’

Some people are eligible

for financial assistance

and subsidies for

new log burners and

advice on thatarea willbe

offered.

New name for service provider

Asignificant provider of community

services, Safer Ashburton District, is

changing its name to better reflect

that its services are delivered across

the entire Mid Canterbury region.

Now named Safer Mid Canterbury,

the organisation has been

providing positive opportunities and

pathways for change for the last 25

years. Its project areas include community

safety, crime prevention, supporting

vulnerable families, children,

migrants, youth justice clients and

adult offenders.

General manager Kevin Clifford

said the name change was about

avoiding any confusion about who

could besupported by its services.

Watercolourist exhibiting

Large, striking and colourful

watercolour

paintings of garden

flowers by Richard Bolton

feature in a new

exhibition at the

McAtamney Gallery,

Geraldine.

Opening to coincide

with the Geraldine Festival,

‘‘A Brush with

Spring’’ will show 10

paintings of rhododendrons,

poppies and

peonies. The paintings

are loose and fluid,

showing the gorgeous

colours of the flowers

against their foliage.

‘‘Flowers are a new

direction for me and I’m

really pleased with the

results,’’ says Richard.

‘‘It’s nice to paint

something different and

there’s always abit of a

risk, but I think these

have turned out very

well.’’

Watercolour has been

Richard’s preferred

medium since a young

age. His passion has led

to great success, with

many awards and commissions

coming his way.

Richard has also written

books on watercolour

painting that are

sold around the world.

The books led to official

invitations to paint in

One of the Bolton works to be displayed.

China, Tibet, Taiwan

and Israel. He had the

unique experience of

travelling through Tibet

and China at a time

when there were usually

severe restrictions on

visitors.

Now living in Geraldine,

Richard and his Kiwi

wife Margaret frequently

travel toEurope and he

paintsthere whenever he

can. He is now wellknown

here forhis highly

skilful works, especially

New Zealand landscapes.

Carolyn McAtamney,

of the McAtamney Gallery,

says Richard is a

master of watercolour.

‘‘In this new exhibition

he has combinedarealistic

depiction of the

flowers with a more

impressionist style inthe

background. His expertise

and craftmanship is

phenomenal.’’

‘‘Richard has exhibited

atthe McAtamney

Gallery for some years

but this ishis first solo

exhibition. Weare very

excited toshow his wonderful

paintings.’’

The inspirationfor the

garden paintings came

from Richard’s sister­inlaw’s

rhododendron nursery

atWoodbury. The

public isinvited to meet

Richard at theexhibition

opening at the McAtamney

Galleryat7pm on 13

November.

The exhibition will run

from 14November until

24 December.

Bankers help to plant natives

Staff from Ashburton

ANZ have mucked in to

plant hundreds of

natives near the Rakaia

Walkway.

Each year the bankers

volunteer to support the

community and this year

16 of the ANZ team

assisted locals by cutting

weed mat, digging holes

and planting shrubs such

as hebes, kowhai, lancewood

and muehlenbeckia

at morning or afternoon

sessions in Rakaia.

Many of the plants

were propagated and

donated by Rakaia

people.

Previously ANZ staff

have completed ameals

on wheels run, helped

Lagmhor School with a

peastraw fundraiser and

painted an exhibition

space at Ashburton Art

Gallery.

The Rakaia beautification

project is part of

the Rakaia Community

Association’s plan to

further develop the

nearby walkway, which

runs for alittle over 4km

from Salmon Tales to

the western edge of the

town (Wolseley road).

The walkway offers

biking, running and

walking opportunities

for locals and visitors,

and plans are in place to

extend it further in the

future.

Historically the land

was wildly overgrown

and covered in gorse

and broom.

The Rakaia Walkway

project was aNZGardener

of the Year finalist

and has been developed

with thousands of

hours of community

labour.

Posters express visions for peace

Local young artists have got behind aPeace

Poster competition promoted by Ashburton

County Lions.

Creating the peace posters is seen as away

to give children the chance to express their

visions of peace and inspire the world

through art and creativity.

The contest has been run by Lions clubs

around the world for 30 years

The local competition was run in conjunction

with Ashburton Art Gallery and aimed

at 11­13 year olds.

It was won by St Joseph’s School student

Sophia Clifford, with Amalia Worsfold the

runner up.

Sophia explored peace by portraying two

contrasting views of the world, one with

pollution/war and one showing harmony. She

linked them with abridge.

Council CEO Hamish Riach comments

Preparingfor an emergency

Earlier this week, Council

staff and representatives

from our local

emergency services hunkered

down for aday of

training on responding to

an Alpine Fault magnitude

eight event. The

purpose was to give staff

the chance to test their

skills and get afeel for

the emergency operations

centre environment

they’d be working

in. It got me thinking

about the importance of

everyone coming

together and working as

one, from services and

volunteers right through

to you, our community.

Major events, whether

they be floods, snow

storms, earthquakes or

other emergencies can be

unpredictable and chaotic.

We can’t always be

sure when they will happen

or their severity, but

we can prepare ourselves

as best as possible to

manage the situation.

Preparation can happen

at all levels, from our

qualified emergency

services keeping their

training up­to­date, the

Council having detailed

plans in place ready to

action when something

happens, and residents

having their emergency

survival kits and getaway

kits sorted.

Through all of us

playing our part before

and during these

events, we can try to

minimise the effects

these emergencies will

have on our community.

Many of you may

have already been in an

emergency before and

have made yourselves

as prepared as possible

for any future events.

For others, there may

be a sense of apathy

that anything could happen.

But, as a civil

defence campaign once

pointed out, what never

happens, happens.

Has your family got

their survival and getaway

kits ready? Do you

have the essentials sorted

to look after yourselves

for three days? Do you

know what to do if power

is lost and you can’t

access the internet or TV

for information? Who is

collecting the kids from

school? Where will you

meet or leave amessage at

if you can’t contact each

other? These are all issues

that can be prepared for

now to avoid added stress

when something happens.

There are great

resources available online

to tell you how to make

your emergency kits and

what items you’ll need.

You’ll also find aHousehold

Emergency Plan with

checklists and spaces to

put important contacts and

phone numbers. Simply

visit getthru.govt.nz.

Although we never wish

for emergencies to happen,

we can all do something

now to make sure we

can get through if and

when it does. If you need

to update or make your

emergency kits, why not

take the time this weekend

to get prepared? It really is

time well spent.

Celebrating Success

Over the past week, we have celebrated the

success and hard work ofour Year 11, 12 and 13

students through prize-givings. Itishumbling to

hear the achievements of these fantastic young

people.Prize-givingsare avaluable timetopause,

reflect and celebrate achievements. Life isbusy.

As we move towards exams, summer jobs and

for those leaving school, the next step, itiseasy

to constantly look ahead and focus on what is

approaching.Weall need to ensurethatwetake the time on occasions to

step back and appreciate our achievements along the way.

NCEAExams

NCEA external exams are just beginning. They run from 08 November

through to 03 December.Iwish all students who aretaking partinexams

all the best. Itisalso worth remembering that the Ashburton College

Libraryisopen most evenings during the week from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. At

the Library, therewill be teachers presenttohelp students revise arange

of subjects in preparation for their exams. The timetable posted in the

Librarygives further information around these study sessions.

Leadership

Our senior students have finished at school for 2019 and have gone on

study leave in preparation forNCEA exams.When this happens,onlyYear

9and 10 students are left atCollege. The Year 10 students are now the

‘leaders’–the oldest and most experienced students left atschool. This

brings responsibilitywith it.

Year 9students also have aleadership role to play over this time. Inthe

coming weeks,Year 8students from contributing schools will be visiting

the College to get information, meet people and experience lessons as

part oftheir transition into Year 9in2020.When these students visit the

school,they will be lookinguptothe currentCollege students to see the

AshCollWay –how we do things hereatAshburton College.

Fortunately,our Year 9and 10 students arenot new to leadership.Asthe

eldest students at aschool in the past -beitprimary,intermediate or both

-they have experienced what it means tobearole model for younger

students. Many have also taken on leadership roles in cultural, sporting,

community orclassroom contexts. Along the way, they will have made

apositivecontribution and made mistakes.Thisisnormal,and all partof

growing as aperson.

The final weeks of school are the next opportunity for our students to

step up and challenge themselves.Welook forward toseeing our Year 9

and 10 students model the College Values by AchievingQuality, Showing

Pride and Having Respect while also growing their own leadership and

role-modelling skills.Theyare,after all,our next generationofschool and,

eventually,communityleaders.

Annual Chess Match–

ThirdConsecutiveVictory to the Staff

This event is steeped in the annals of historical activities at Ashburton

College. Aset game of Chess is drawnout of ahat, in the staffroom at Staff

Briefing to ensure witnesses! We are assured that this annual end-of-year

eventstartedasaveryformal affair,with players wearing ‘boards’depicting

their positions. Atsome stage it morphed into the eventitistoday, always

alot of fun, and providing wonderful opportunities for students to douse

staff and viceversa.

This game, held this year after weather delays on Friday 25 October and

still in cold conditions, is then played out on the College Chessboard with

‘players’moved according to the real movesofthe original game. Assisted

by copious amounts of water and precarious forms oftransport toremove

‘dead’players,the event provided afun entertainmentoption at lunchtime.

As is also traditional, the staff moves are made byalong-serving, retiring

staff member.

This honour went this year to fortynine year-long Historyand Lawteacher

Mark Gleason, as he changed from his customary position as ‘King’player

on the chessboard.

Making the moves for the students this year was Andrew Phimester with

teacherand Chess Match organiser Jason Vanninicalling the moves.

Sound Results at NewZealand Schools’

National Mountain- Biking Championships

TheAshburtonCollege team

of (pictured right, lefttoright)

Jack Savage,BradBlundell,

Riley Blundell,Mya Johnston

and Holly Trotter competed

in this eventinDunedin

early October,overthe three

disciplines of Enduro, Down

Hill and Cross Country. At this

event, spread across grades,

over 400 riders competed,representing 108 schools from throughout New

Zealand.

Jocelyn Johnston, Manager, said that the tracks at Signal Hill were fast and

dry and the sun shone on the Enduro event on Friday, with all of the team

riding well.

However, overnight rain meant the Downhill track was muddy for the

practise runs and heavy rain just before the race created very challenging

conditions toride in, with everyone riding cautiously to make it down the

technical course. Unfortunately Brad got aflat tyre and wasunabletofinish

therace, but everyone else washappytomakeitdownsafely.

Sunday was avery early start for Cross-Country. With the tracks having

dried out slightly, conditions were much better for racing. All of the team

completed the course in goodtime amongst some very tough competition.

Final OutdoorEducation Event-Year 12 Cycle Tour

On 17 and 18 October College Year 12 Outdoor Education students

took partintheir last tripfor theyear.

The cycle tour group initially utilised Ashburton’s Mountain BikeTrack and

then continued down the AshburtonRiver Trail/WalkwayTrack to Hakatere.

Outdoor Education teacher Luke Martin said that the students got to test

their abilityonthe Mountain BikeTrack and at the Skills Park,beforeacalmer

ride to thecoast.The weatherwas perfect on theThursday, thesun wasout

which meant safe and easy riding conditions. Two ofCollege’s Japanese

exchange students Yuno Hioki and Hiromune Kakeda attempted aset of

the smaller jumps at the Skills Park,excited at nothavingexperienced such

an opportunitybefore.

Arriving at the Hakateresettlement, it wastimetoset up camp oppositethe

beach and enjoyawell-deserved rest afterseveral hours of riding.

Unfortunately, the weather changed overnight and was cold and rainy in

the morning.Under tree cover the students practised their puncturerepair

skills, before heading back. Track conditions were now alot more fun, or

more scary, depending onyour view! It was impossible tonot get muddy

and the conditionscertainly made the trip back alot moreinvolved foreach

rider. Corners became slippery, with puddles there tocatch afront wheel

and send the rider off if inattention crept in.

Fortunately, all students made it back in one piece, although the need for

ashower was on everyone’s mind with mud, mud, mud, everywhere. The

students gained alot from the trip and it wasagreat waytofinish theyear.

Nowitistimefor them to finishtheir theoryworkand evaluations of the trip

in order to gain their final credits in Outdoor Education.

They all had their own

tents, set up in a giant

circle, to cover different

aspects of safety themed

around ‘‘keeping ourselves

and our families

safe’’.

Among those to take

part were crews from Fire

activities such as the

Escape My House virtual

fire safety programme,

Old harvester with new message

By Toni Williams

John Hall bought a1963

Massey Ferguson 788

model combine harvester

around 30 years ago.

It’s served him well

cutting white clover on

the farm, but is now

mostly used for fun.

And it still runs ‘‘really

well’’.

It made an appearance,

with a message, at the

Mid Canterbury Vintage

Machinery Club, on site

at the Ashburton A&P

Show last weekend, and

featured in the Grand

Parade.

The message ‘Farmers

feed cities’ was agentle

reminder to people in the

community about the

contribution farmers give

to their lives.

It was amessage, Mr

Hall saw at aploughing

championships in

Ontario, Canada, where

farmers are valued for

their contribution.

It tickled his fancy, and

he brought the message

home.

This weekend he

thought it was timely to

use it.

‘‘We’re proud farmers,

but we don’t like what’s

happening (farmers feeling

under siege and misrepresented).Ithink

it’s a

true statement,’’ he said.

The combine, initially

owned from brand new by

the Maw family of Barrhill,

is powered by a

Perkins motor. It has a10

foot cut.

In keeping with the

theme of the show ‘Seeds

of Mid Canterbury’, the

combine sat along side 54

other tractors, owned by

club members, which were

set up with aplough, discs,

drills, a truck for carting,

and atractor and baler. The

combine’s final outing will

be to the club’s Wheat and

Wheels Rally, at the property

of Anthony Hampton,

in early April, 2022.

Win for Skyla and Dag

The bond between Mt Somers

shepherd Skyla Taylor and four

year old heading dog, Dag, helped

them secure the maiden win at the

recent Tux New Zealand Yarding

Challenge South Canterbury heat,

at Springbank Farm, in Pleasant

Point.

The win, in which Skyla and Dag

beat second placed competitor

Simon Chamberlain and dog Indy

by 8.5 points, will see the duo

advance tothe South Island event,

in Blenheim, early next year.

It was the first time Skyla had

competed in the event so gaining

the qualifying time to advance

further was apleasant surprise.

Skyla, 26, has been shepherding,

and entering local dog trial competitions,

for the past seven years,

preferring to stick to the local trials

close to home. Along with the

accolade of winning she also

received prize money.

She has six dogs but for yarding

events only uses her favourite ­

male heading dog, Dag ­who she

has had since he was eight weeks

old.

Skyla Taylor and heading dog,

Dag, share aspecial bond.

(Photo supplied)

They were competing again at

the Ashburton A&P Show last

weekend.

The maiden win, considered a

junior category in the competitions,

is aboost to her early dog

trialling experience, especially as

it’s something she’s always wanted

to do.

‘‘I haven’t competed in the big

(open) competitions, I’ve been

doing the local ones around where

I’ve been shepherding,’’ she says,

and admits she is keen to stick to

the maiden events for now.

She has just returned from an

overseas trip exploring the United

Kingdom and Europe, but previously

worked inSouthland and

most recently, was head shepherd

at Mt Somers Station.

The move from Southland to

Mid Canterbury, she said, came

from seeking a change in landscapes.

The former Telford student, who

studied for a Diploma in Rural

Business, was born and raised in

rural Five Forks, near Oamaru.

Her grandparents, Fay and Bruce

McNab, owned afarm in the area.

‘‘The family has been farmingall

my life, so I’ve grown up with

shepherding,’’ she said.

Since returning from her trip she

has continued working in the Mt

Somers area picking up casual

shepherding work.

First ECan meeting for Mackenzie

Mid Canterbury farmerIan

Mackenzie has taken his place at

the Environment Canterbury

(ECan) table, effortlessly stepping

into arole as councillorafter

winning one of two Mid

Canterbury/Opakihi regional

constituency positions in the local

body election.

The council, madeupofIan

Mackenzie, John Sunckell,

Elizabeth McKenzie, Peter Scott

(deputy chair),Vicky Southworth,

Phil Clearwater, Claire McKay,

Grant Edge, Megan Hands, Craig

Pauling, Jenny Hughey(chair),

Tane Apanui, Lan Pham and

NicoleMarshall, is the first fully

electedregionalcouncil since the

Governmentsacked the standing

council back in 2010.

It was run by commissioners

until 2016, when partial democracy

was returned.

Mr Mackenzie said the first

ECan meeting, held on October

24, saw council staff brief elected

members to bring them up to date

with the process of running

Environment Canterbury.

There was alot of listening, he

said.

‘‘It’s interesting that the nonfarming

councillorsseem to be

extremelyenthusiastic about

tryingtolearn about new

technologies that may be getting

produced by AgResearchand

various other research

organisations,that will enable

farmers to becomesuper heroes

when it comes to the

environment.’’

But he said there was alot of

technology already in use in

modern agriculture ­which was a

lot different from the systemsused

two generations ago.

‘‘One of the things Iwant to

achieve in the short­term is try to

help thesenew councillors,who

are all quite green,understand

modern agriculture...thereisabit

of learning to be done. There is a

bit of achasm there Isuspect.’’

He said the election of

environmentalist Jenny Hughey as

ECan chairwoman had seen ‘‘a

very sensible woman elected to the

chair’’ with plenty of governance

experience.

MrMackenzie too has

experience in governance roles

having servedonthe boards of

several commercial businesses,

charitableand community groups,

governmentand NGOgroups.

He also served some yearson

the regional counciltransport

committee,but was better known

for his involvementwith water and

the environment.

He said upcoming challenges for

thecouncil, and farmers, will

include any essential freshwater

plans imposed by governmentand

now being considered by Cabinet

members.

Challenges ahead,

vigilance needed

‘‘There are still challenges ahead, and

farmers need to be aware that the risk of

getting (stock) infected with Mycoplasma

bovis (Mbovis) is still very real,’’

says members of the Mbovis Programme.

The arrival ofthe cattle disease into

New Zealand is one of the greatest

biosecurity challenges the country has

ever faced, and the Mbovis Programme

is aworld first attempt to eradicate the

‘‘insidious cattle disease from our

national herd’’.

Last week the independent Technical

Advisory Group (TAG) to the Mbovis

Programme, made up of an international

group of technical experts to

provide critical advice and review ofthe

Programme’s work, and progress

towards eradication, released theirlatest

report stating eradication was still considered

possible.

And members of the Mbovis Programme

reminded farmers to remain

vigilant with their animal movement

records and on­farm biosecurity

measures to prevent infection.

‘‘If we allowed ittogounchecked we

estimate it would cause $1.3 billion in

productivity losses in the first ten years.

It would also increase our use of

antibiotics in cattle, cause animal welfare

issues, and challenge our open

approach to farming, which is based on

extensive movement of cattle,’’ they

said.

‘‘We expect that the majority of

infected farms will have been found by

late 2020, after which there will be a

long­term surveillance effort, to ensure

that we have found all of the infected

cattle.’’

‘‘Four percent of New Zealand’s

24,000 farms have been under restrictions

and required testing due to

possible exposure to Mbovis. To date

there have been 201 farms found to be

infected, with 185 of those depopulated,

cleaned and disinfected, and being

supported back to farmingfree from the

disease.’’

‘‘The three partners have been working

to continuously improve the Programme,

seeking regular review by

independent experts, as well as feedback

from affected farmers and industry

groups.

‘‘The Programme has paid out over

$100 million in compensation to affected

farmers, and completed more than one

million tests in our labs. The length of

time to test samples has been drastically

reduced, and the average compensation

claim is now paid within 23 working

Farmers wait, wonder over water

Mid Canterbury farmers

are in aholding pattern

waiting for the outcome

of the Government

Essential Freshwater plan

which, at its close last

week, had attracted more

than 12,000 submissions.

Ashburton arable farmer

David Clark questioned

how any government

could suggestaplan

that resulted in

‘‘economic vandalism’’.

The plan, and its potential

effects, was apoint of

conversation in Ashburton

last week when

National Party opposition

agricultural spokeperson

Todd Muller, from Bay of

Plenty, spoke atapublic

meeting in town, aspart

of his nationwide travels.

Todd Muller

He was accompanied by

Rangitata MP Andrew

Falloon.

Mr Muller was keen to

talk about where the

country was headed,

especially rural New Zealand,

where the Government

wanted to take it,

and the drivers pushing

them.

There were around 100

people there, including

Ashburton council representatives

Environment

Canterbury’s Ian Mackenzie

and Federated Farmers

Mid Canterbury

president David Clark.

‘‘I have afundamental

belief that this Government

has avery different

visiononwhere they want

to take this country, and

particularly the New Zealand

economy, and it is

anchored back to

observationsthat they had

20 years ago,’’ MrMuller

said.

Mr Muller, who has a

rural background, was

aware of the highs and

lows of farming.

He spoke about capital

gains tax, climate change

(and reducing methane/

emission levels without

threatening food production)

and the Emissions

Trading Scheme,

‘‘seen (by the Government),

in this issue at

least, it would be better to

work with farmers than

against them’’.

He acknowledged the

world­classeffortsofNew

Zealand farmers already

in place and spoke of the

Government needing

‘‘perspective’’ about

where New Zealand falls

on aglobal­scale.

The elephant in the

room was the freshwater

plan ­ saved until last ­

which among other things

lacked social and

economic analysis.

His words opened abig

response from the crowd,

including Mr Clark, an

arable farmer, who shared

detailed effects the proposed

freshwater plan

would have on his farm

operation. It was acomparativeanalysis

based on

areportdone by Environment

Canterbury’s head

scientist Dr Tim Davie in

2017, using similar cutbacks

for the Waihora

Selwyn Zone.

‘‘We run areasonably

atypical irrigated, arable

system much like any

other in this district,’’ he

said.

‘‘And we budgeted,

based on going back to

dryland breeding ewes,

which coincidentally was

the farming system that

was on the farm when we

came to this district in

1994, so it’s a relatively

easy process of lifting out

the 1994 budgets and

annual accounts, and

changing them to today’s

values.’’

It was based on 3,000

ewes and 50 hectares of

dryland crop.

‘‘Our crop income

would reduce by 92

percent. Our sheep gross

income would reduce by

62 percent. Our lamb

purchases would reduce

Studies outline cost to farming, economy

Economic modelling by

DairyNZ shows the proposed

Essential Freshwater

package could significantly

harm New

Zealand’s dairy sector

and the wider national

economy.

Following the government’s

September

release of proposed

freshwater regulations,

DairyNZ initiated three

studies into the potential

economic effects of the

Essential Freshwater

proposals. Two of these

economic studies were

independent and all three

have been peer­reviewed.

The economic studies

are supported by additional

technical research

by DairyNZ which analyses

the likely water quality

improvements.

DairyNZ chief executive,

Dr Tim Mackle said

economic modelling

showed the proposed

Essential Freshwater policy

package was one of

the largest economic

challenges posed to the

dairy sector in ageneration.

‘‘It’s full effect could

lead to afall in our GDP

of $6 billion by 2050,

without even adding

additional costs related

to climate change,’’ he

said.

‘‘But what is really

crucial is that we believe

other options are available

to improve and

strengthen the protection

of ecosystem health.‘‘

DairyNZ have outlined

those options in their

submission to government

on the proposals.

‘‘The proposed freshwater

changes would

result in significant

declines in milk production

and is therefore a

serious threat to the

international competitiveness

of New

Zealand’s dairy sector.

‘‘However, water quality

and emissions gains can

still be made with less

stringent reforms, at a

lesser cost to the New

Zealand economy. Farmers

care deeply about

the environment and

have been doing their bit

to protect the environment

and our waterways

for some time,’’ said Dr

Mackle.

‘‘Farmers are absolutely

on board with continuing

toplay their part

in improving our waterways,

however stringent

changes cannot be at the

detriment of farming’s

future and the communities

they support.

‘‘We need to approach

this carefully, balancing

environment and economy

­ we can achieve

both goals by working

closely together on this

by 99 percent, sothat’s a

direct impact on store

lamb farmers. Our sheep

net income would reduce

by 28 percent. Our

expenditure on our business

woulddecrease by 70

percent, sothat’s adirect

impact on any businesses

(we use). Our earnings

before interest in tax will

decrease by 68 percent.

Our capital reinvestment

will decrease by 74

percent. Our net profit

will decrease by 105

percent. And our tax paid

will decrease by 75

percent.’’

Mr Clark questioned

how any government

could suggest aplan that

resulted in ‘‘such

economic vandalism’’.

issue.’’

‘‘The economic analysis

shows potential significant

impact. By 2050,

total milk production is

forecast to fall by 24

percent and all national

exports by 5.2 percent or

$8.1 billion.’’

Tax revenuefrom dairy

is also forecast to more

than halve by 2050, with

an annual loss of $0.54

billion at the national

level.
