Pipeline to future ­growth locked in<br />

By John Keast<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> council has been thanked<br />

for its foresight in replacing ­ahead<br />

of time ­akey piece of wastewater<br />

infrastructure.<br />

Peter Seipp, managing director of<br />

Seipp Construction, contracted to<br />

future­proof the <strong>Ashburton</strong> wastewater<br />

system by replacing a small<br />

pipe that runs under the <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

River, said many councils waited<br />

until work like that was urgent, but<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> was ahead of its time in<br />

doing the work now and building in<br />

capacity for the future.<br />

That showed respect for the community<br />

and the environment.<br />

Mr Seipp spoke at a blessing<br />

ceremony on the south side of the<br />

river ­and the work is now under<br />

way.<br />

The $7m project began on Monday<br />

and will take about 14 months.<br />

The work will affect sections of the<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong>­Lake Hood cycle trails.<br />

The project involves a 1100mm<br />

pipe, more than twice the size of the<br />

existing pipe, put under the river, and<br />

connecting to anew pump station to<br />

be built near the wastewater plant at<br />

Tinwald.<br />

The pumping station will be as big<br />

as a three­storey building and be<br />

underground.<br />

It will have four pumps big enough<br />

to shift all the water in the EA<br />

Networks Centre in about 15<br />

minutes.<br />

Council’s service delivery group<br />

manager Neil McCann said the<br />

project would provide for <strong>Ashburton</strong>’s<br />

growth and meet population<br />

needs.<br />

‘‘We’re very pleased to be delivering<br />

this necessary upgrade. It will<br />

benefit residents now and in the<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> council project manager<br />

Shyamal Ram said the existing<br />

pipeline was put in in the 1970s and<br />

needed to be renewed.<br />

Preparation work had taken<br />

months.<br />

At its deepest part, the pipe would<br />

be 8m below ground level.<br />

He said the pipe and pump station<br />

had adesign life of 100 years.<br />

The blessing was performed by<br />

Tewera King, of Arowhenua, and<br />

mayor Neil Brown sunk aspade into<br />

ground near where the pump station<br />

will be built to signal to start of the<br />

development.<br />

Though the <strong>Ashburton</strong>/Hakatere<br />

River Trail on the northern side of<br />

the river would remain open for<br />

much of the project, minor closures<br />

were expected.<br />

Asection of the <strong>Ashburton</strong>­Lake<br />

Hood Trail (on the southern side)<br />

will be closed near the construction<br />

site at Boundary Road.<br />

People will be directed to use a<br />

detour via Grahams Road and Grove<br />

Dip in the bowl and achairman is selected<br />

By Mick Jensen<br />

Democracy was in action from the<br />

first minute of Monday’s Methven<br />

Community Board’s (MCB) meeting,<br />

with two ballots needed to decide the<br />

chairman and deputy chairman roles.<br />

At the first meeting of the new<br />

term, new Western Ward councillor<br />

Rodger Letham proposed first­time<br />

board memberKelvin Holmes for the<br />

chairman role, while fellow councillor<br />

Liz McMillan backed previous­term<br />

chairman Dan McLaughlin.<br />

Mr Letham was seconded by Ron<br />

Smith, while Sonia McAlpine gave<br />

her vote to McLaughlin, meaning<br />

voting was tied at3­3.<br />

Afteraquickphone callto<strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

council for policy confirmation, it<br />

was left to senior council manager<br />

and acting meeting chair Jane<br />

Donaldson to draw aname outofthe<br />

hat, in this case abowl, todecide the<br />

chairman.<br />

Mr McLaughlin’s name wasdrawn.<br />

The same process was repeated<br />

with the deputy chairman role, with<br />

Kelvin Holmes this time upagainst<br />

Sonia McAlpine.<br />

Mrs McAlpine’s name was drawn.<br />

Ms Donaldson had the option<br />

under delegated authority to choose a<br />

candidate for each role, but was not<br />

comfortable with making those decisions.<br />

After general consensus around<br />

the table, it was decided that name<br />

drawing was the best option.<br />

A coin toss, which was used<br />

recently to decide the final place on<br />

theQueenstown LakesDistrict Council,<br />

was also considered, but ruled out.<br />

Aby­election will be held tofind a<br />

fifth MCB board member, after just<br />

four candidates stood at the October<br />

election.<br />

Call for water impact study<br />

Government must commission an independent<br />

study to identifythe social and economic impactsof<br />

the proposed Action for Healthy Waterways, an<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> council submission says.<br />

The hard­hitting submission has been prepared<br />

under urgency to meet the Government’s tight<br />

submission deadline of October 31.<br />

The council has implored the Government in<br />

futuretoplan and prepare for ‘‘longer engagement<br />

periods’’ on issues that had broad implications.<br />

‘‘Council is highly concerned with the timing of<br />

this consultation. From alocal government perspective,<br />

the August­October period of the triennium<br />

leading into local body elections can be a<br />

difficult and politically charged time. When<br />

considered more broadly from arural economy<br />

perspective, this time of year is already demanding<br />

for dairy, sheep, cropping and beef industries.<br />

‘‘Add to this the pressure of proposals with farreaching<br />

implications, ashas been suggested, we<br />

consider it entirely predictable the discussion has<br />

been largely negative,’’ the submission said.<br />

Council said the missing assessment of the<br />

impact ofthe proposals on the local economy is<br />

‘‘most concerning for our district’’.<br />

‘‘History has taught us that when farming<br />

sneezes, <strong>Ashburton</strong> District catches acold.’’<br />

It said that before proceeding further, ‘‘we<br />

believe that the Government must commission a<br />

thorough independent study to identify the<br />

economic and social impactsthat implementing the<br />

FWPS would have.’’<br />

At the broadest level, council saw that livelihoods<br />

of someinthe community could be affected.<br />

‘‘Many inour community are employed in jobs<br />

that are either directly or indirectly connected to<br />

the agricultural industry.’’<br />

It said the district had been affectedbyM.bovis,<br />

and council was also concerned the community<br />

would face additional and compounding pressures<br />

as aresult of the freshwater proposals that could<br />

impact on resilience and wellbeing.<br />

The proposals would also have significant<br />

impacts oncouncils toupgrade infrastructure for<br />

drinking water, wastewater and stormwater and<br />

rate increases were inevitable.<br />

‘‘For our rural sector, weare concerned about<br />

the absence of meaningful economic impact<br />

analysis on farming systems in the discussion<br />

document. Case studies that are included in the<br />

proposals are not representative of Mid Canterbury<br />

farmingoperations and are limited in their analysis<br />

of costs.’’<br />

Council was also concerned areport prepared<br />

for the Ministry for the Environment by Macfarlane<br />

Rural Business Ltd was not included in the<br />

discussion document.<br />

The council acknowledged that many local<br />

farmers and growers were at the forefront of<br />

research and technology to advance environmentally<br />

sustainablepractices, and noted the legalaction<br />

that was taken byForest and Bird NZ and the<br />

subsequent decision of the Office of Auditor<br />

General to withdraw the exemption for Water<br />

Zone Committee members to participate freely in<br />

discussions threatened tounravel the collaborative<br />

structures that had supported the Canterbury<br />

Water Management Strategy.<br />

THIS WEEK’SSPECIALS<br />

Local news at www.starnews.co.nz<br />

In this short report, nothing is watered down<br />

Former <strong>Ashburton</strong> councillor<br />

Peter Reveley<br />

warned new councillors<br />

that much of their work<br />

in the coming term would<br />

involve water.<br />

He was right, and<br />

much of the work of<br />

previous councils has also<br />

involved water.<br />

The first major report<br />

to hit the desk of new<br />

councillors was the council’s<br />

submission to government<br />

on proposed<br />

freshwater reforms.<br />

It pulls no punches.<br />

The document first, as<br />

is the way of these things,<br />

<strong>Courier</strong> comment<br />

sets out afew facts and<br />

figures about <strong>Ashburton</strong>,<br />

agrees with the principle<br />

of improving water ­noone<br />

is going to argue<br />

against that ­ and then<br />

says: ‘‘Council is highly<br />

concerned with the timing<br />

of the consultation,<br />

the August­October<br />

period of the triennium<br />

leading into local body<br />

elections can be adifficult<br />

and politically<br />

charged time’’.<br />

It then says ­and no<br />

Skatepark soon<br />

Methven’s new skatepark<br />

project is heading for apre<br />

Christmas opening.<br />

The project has been<br />

driven by KidzMethven and<br />

will be on the corner of<br />

Bank and McMillan streets.<br />

It will provide a dedicated<br />

space for local kids<br />

and young people toskate<br />

all year round, after the<br />

building that housed a<br />

privately­owned indoor<br />

skatepark in Methven was<br />

damaged.<br />

It was hoped to have the<br />

skatepark completed by<br />

December 21.<br />

farmer would disagree ­<br />

that that is also ademanding<br />

time for farming.<br />

Council then goes further,<br />

imploring the Government<br />

in future to<br />

‘‘plan and prepare for<br />

longer engagement<br />

periods’’.<br />

For that, read: don’t<br />

rush usin future.<br />

There is more.<br />

The council then said<br />

that before the Government<br />

does anything<br />

more, it ‘‘must commission<br />

athorough independent<br />

study toidentify<br />

the economic and social<br />

impacts’’ thatimplementing<br />

the proposals would<br />

have.<br />

The proposed reforms<br />

will affect all.<br />

This is not just ‘‘something<br />

for the farm’’.<br />

The submission says it<br />

believes rate rises will be<br />

inevitable as councils<br />

upgrade infrastructure<br />

for drinking water, wastewater<br />

and stormwater.<br />

It some areas, the bill<br />

could be big.<br />

The submission also<br />

says that key agriculture<br />

businesses could be significantly<br />

affected by the<br />

proposed targets.<br />

Together, those businesses<br />

contribute $603m<br />

to the district’s gross<br />

domestic product.<br />

The freshwater<br />

reforms are proposals; an<br />

independent advisory<br />

panel will provide Government<br />

Ministers with a<br />

report on consultation<br />

submissions, and will<br />

include recommendations.<br />

At the first meeting,<br />

councillors ran their eyes<br />

over the council submission,<br />

one from ECan<br />

and another from the<br />

Canterbury mayoral<br />

forum.<br />

All follow similar<br />

themes.<br />

That these bodies (and<br />

others) got the material<br />

together toprepare submissions<br />

inthe straitened<br />

timeframe is remarkable,<br />

but the <strong>Ashburton</strong> council<br />

was never going to let<br />

the (short) opportunity<br />

pass.<br />

Preparing the submission<br />

was apriority.<br />

What must be awaited<br />

now is the Government’s<br />

response to the submissions<br />

­and there will be<br />

many.<br />

Most are agreed something<br />

needs to be done.<br />

The big question is<br />

what, when, and the cost.<br />

Fountain is back ­with afish<br />

By Toni Williams<br />

The McElhinney Water<br />

Fountain, on the corner<br />

of Havelock and West<br />

streets in downtown <strong>Ashburton</strong>,<br />

is again in top<br />

working order after a<br />

collaborative effort to<br />

restore it.<br />

It has spent many<br />

seasons out of action.<br />

The fountain, also a<br />

drinking fountain, was<br />

bequeathed to <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

by the late Myra and Bob<br />

McElhinney in the early<br />

1980s. The couple, who<br />

had a hairdressing business<br />

on Tancred Street<br />

and lived on Cameron<br />

Street, had no children<br />

and left $5000 to the<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> community at<br />

the death of Myra who<br />

died in 1981; Bob died in<br />

1977.<br />

According to family<br />

members at the time, Bob<br />

wanted afountain tobe<br />

near the war memorial as<br />

he had served in war for<br />

four and a half years.<br />

After Myra’s death, two<br />

bequests were made; one<br />

was $2000 to maintain<br />

and repair the town clock,<br />

and the other for aconstruction<br />

of a fountain.<br />

The location and design<br />

was finalised by a<br />

Borough Council subcommittee<br />

set up to handle<br />

the request.<br />

The fountain, designed<br />

and executed by Hampton<br />

Studios, of Christchurch,<br />

was officially unveiled on<br />

June 15, 1984.<br />

In its time it was top of<br />

the line,but of late has sat<br />

idle and in need of attention.<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> Contracting<br />

Ltd (ACL) plumbing division<br />

manager Aaron<br />

Gairns remembered the<br />

fountain from his childhood,<br />

travelling past it<br />

each day on the way to<br />

primary school. It irked<br />

him that it was not working.<br />

‘‘If you see one fountain<br />

on your best corner<br />

not going, what do you<br />

do?,’’especially for someone<br />

working in water, he<br />

said.<br />

He approached the<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> District Council<br />

to set the wheels in<br />

motion for its restoration.<br />

And also contacted <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

Museum to find<br />

out more about the McElhinney’s<br />

and the ‘‘benevolent<br />

actions of a couple<br />

who did so much for<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong>’’.<br />

With ACL, Laser Electrical<br />

and Throwin’ Shapes<br />

Glass on board, their<br />

charitable restoration<br />

project got under way.<br />

Mr Gairns said what<br />

started as asimple project<br />

was more involved than<br />

first thought.<br />

The brick work was<br />

cleaned with a dry ice<br />

compound to prevent<br />

water blasting damage,<br />

then covered in aprotective<br />

coating, the drinking<br />

tap changed, decking seat<br />

replaced and the internal<br />

workings sorted.<br />

Laser Electrical manager<br />

Brent Christie said in<br />

the end a new water<br />

pumping system was<br />

installed as well as warm<br />

LED strip lighting under<br />

the fountain pools and<br />

display flood lights.<br />

Glass artist Tash Sim<br />

crafted abespoke purple<br />

tinged, with silver fleck,<br />

glass salmon ­the result of<br />

three separate firings at<br />

812 degree temperatures ­<br />

to adorn the frontage of<br />

the fountain.<br />

The salmon replacesan<br />

existing copper mounted<br />

salmon and was atribute<br />

to Mr McElhinney’s<br />

enjoyment of fishing.<br />

The three businesses<br />

efforts all came to aclose<br />

at the restoration launch<br />

last week with apush of a<br />

button by St Joseph’s<br />

School Year 7pupil Ben<br />

Ciron. He got to be the<br />

first to use the drinking<br />

fountain in front of the<br />

businesses involved, Ben’s<br />

school peers and members<br />

of the public. There<br />

was also asausage sizzle.<br />

Ben earned the right<br />

after winning amini­quiz<br />

about the fountain and its<br />

restoration.<br />

Information workshop in wind<br />

Aworkshop on information<br />

available to <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

resident and visitors<br />

will beheld.<br />

It cameatthe behest of<br />

returning councillor<br />

Angus McKay whomoved<br />

successfully that ‘‘a workshop<br />

on information<br />

delivered to the people of<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> and visitors<br />

and how it fits into the<br />

new CBD plan’’.<br />

The motion, opposed<br />

by Cr Stuart Wilson, came<br />

after council discussed the<br />

quarterly report of tourism<br />

body Experience Mid<br />

Canterbury.<br />

General<br />

manager<br />

Bruce Moffat said only<br />

three of80i­Sites in New<br />

Zealand made money.<br />

He said most people<br />

booked online or found<br />

out about an area by<br />

searching online.<br />

He said he had seen<br />

people come into an<br />

i­Site, make an inquiry,<br />

then go outside, flip out a<br />

phone and make abooking.<br />

But Cr McKay, holding<br />

out his phone, asked<br />

where the information<br />

was ­ he said he had<br />

looked and could not find<br />

it.<br />

Mr Moffatwent to take<br />

the phone to show him<br />

the site, but mayor Neil<br />

Brown said that might be<br />

better outside the meeting.<br />

Cr Lynette Lovett said<br />

the workshop should also<br />

include all groups that<br />

provide information, such<br />

as Presbyterian Support,<br />

and not just council and<br />

Experience Mid Canterbury.<br />

Cr Stuart Wilson asked<br />

if it was correct that when<br />

the <strong>Ashburton</strong> i­Site<br />

closed that the money<br />

saved was added to the<br />

budgetofExperience Mid<br />

Canterbury.<br />

The chairman, James<br />

Urquhart, said that was<br />

right, but the organisation,<br />

then, was going<br />

down a dark hole and<br />

then became a councilcontrolled<br />

organisation,<br />

meaning itscosts wentup.<br />

And council had been<br />

reducing its budget by<br />

$10,000 ayear every year.<br />

‘‘We are going backwards,’’<br />

Mr Urquhart<br />

said.<br />

Cr Wilson said he was<br />

‘‘probably the author’’ of<br />

that but surely the tourism<br />

industry could make up<br />

the difference.<br />

‘‘What other industry is<br />

subsidisedtothe extent of<br />

tourism?’’<br />

Mr Moffat said Experience<br />

Mid Canterbury had<br />

never made any money.<br />

Cr Wilson said if the<br />

body was ‘‘doing such a<br />

wonderfuljob’’ whyaren’t<br />

they (tourism businesses)<br />

supporting you.<br />

Mr Urquhart said they<br />

were, and the discussion<br />

was going in circles.<br />

He said the district got<br />

a good return on any<br />

council money.<br />

Cr Falloon said any<br />

previous motions on the<br />

subject should bebrought<br />

to the workshop.<br />

Anglers flock to<br />

high country lakes<br />

Anglers flocked to the<br />

Canterbury back country<br />

in their hundreds as fine<br />

weather heralded the<br />

opening day of the high<br />

country fishing season.<br />

Conditions on the<br />

lakes were beautiful with<br />

warm fine weather providing<br />

the perfect opportunity<br />

for families to<br />

spend the day fishing.<br />

Such is the prestige<br />

held by anglers for the<br />

Canterbury high country<br />

as a fishing destination<br />

that anglers camefrom as<br />

far away as Southland<br />

and Auckland.<br />

Some northern hemisphereanglers<br />

also timed<br />

their trip to New Zealand<br />

to coincide with opening<br />

weekend.<br />

Over ahundred boats<br />

were on Lake Coleridge<br />

but shore­based anglers<br />

were out in force and<br />

both were reeling in the<br />

fish.<br />

Fish & Game delays<br />

the opening ofthe high<br />

country areas to fishing<br />

for amonth so that late<br />

spawning rainbow trout<br />

have the opportunity to<br />

spawn without being<br />

disturbed.<br />

On Saturday afternoon,<br />

hundreds<br />

converged onRyton Bay<br />

for the prize giving of the<br />

annual Lake Coleridge<br />

Fishing Competition.<br />

Therewas 265 entrants<br />

competing for thousands<br />

of dollars of prizes donated<br />

by Hunting &Fishing<br />

Tower Junction.<br />

While there were<br />

prizes for fish caught,<br />

there were many more<br />

spot prizes for entrants<br />

of all age groups.<br />

Fish &Game uses the<br />

data gathered from the<br />

fish caught to assess the<br />

health of the fish population<br />

in the lakes.<br />

The lakes themselves<br />

looked in good condition<br />

with lake levels higher<br />

than last year’s opening<br />

following a good spring<br />

snow melt.<br />

Fish weighed in for the<br />

competition looked<br />

healthy and some fish<br />

weredestined straight for<br />

the barbecue after they<br />

were measured.<br />

Fish &Game Rangers<br />

were out in force checking<br />

that anglers were<br />

licensed and following<br />

the rules.<br />

Apart from acouple of<br />

anglers that had left their<br />

licence at home, no<br />

issues were detected.<br />

The number of anglers<br />

checked on lakes was up<br />

compared to last year,<br />

with some lakes having a<br />

third more anglers on<br />

them compared to last<br />

year.<br />

The Canterbury high<br />

country lakesare so close<br />

to Christchurch and easily<br />

accessible bycar that<br />

theyare aperfect spot for<br />

aday trip.<br />

Geraldine drop in session<br />

on use of logburners<br />

From 1 January 2020,<br />

older style wood burners<br />

can nolonger beused in<br />

Geraldine clean air<br />

zones, on properties<br />

smaller than two hectares.<br />

Older style burners<br />

can be replaced with a<br />

low or ultra­low emission<br />

burner, and those<br />

can be used with no<br />

expiry date.<br />

A drop in session is<br />

scheduled atGeraldine<br />

Library tomorrow<br />

(<strong>November</strong> 8) from<br />

12.30pm until 4.30pm<br />

for residents to find out<br />

moreabout the requirements,<br />

subsidies and<br />

other help available.<br />

Drop­in sessions<br />

were previously held at<br />

the end of August in<br />

both Geraldine and<br />

Waimate, which is also<br />

affected by the rule<br />

change.<br />

Environment Canterbury<br />

(ECan) senior air<br />

quality implementation<br />

officer Mark Bourassa<br />

said he was pleased<br />

with how many people<br />

from both communities<br />

stopped by to havetheir<br />

questions answered in<br />

August.<br />

‘‘We were able to provide<br />

answers to many<br />

questions from the communities<br />

regarding<br />

replacement log burners,<br />

heat pumps, subsidies,<br />

and Healthier Homes<br />

Canterbury,’’ he said.<br />

‘‘We’ve been carrying<br />

out follow up visits to<br />

people’s households<br />

where needed, to help<br />

them determine what<br />

type of log burner is<br />

currently in place, and<br />

what action, ifany, they<br />

need to take before the<br />

deadline.<br />

‘‘In one instance, we<br />

were able to confirm for a<br />

customer that they are<br />

already using a lowemission<br />

wood burner<br />

and therefore don’t need<br />

to take any action before<br />

the 1January 2020 deadline.’’<br />

Some people are eligible<br />

for financial assistance<br />

and subsidies for<br />

new log burners and<br />

advice on thatarea willbe<br />

offered.

New name for service provider<br />

Asignificant provider of community<br />

services, Safer <strong>Ashburton</strong> District, is<br />

changing its name to better reflect<br />

that its services are delivered across<br />

the entire Mid Canterbury region.<br />

Now named Safer Mid Canterbury,<br />

the organisation has been<br />

providing positive opportunities and<br />

pathways for change for the last 25<br />

years. Its project areas include community<br />

safety, crime prevention, supporting<br />

vulnerable families, children,<br />

migrants, youth justice clients and<br />

adult offenders.<br />

General manager Kevin Clifford<br />

said the name change was about<br />

avoiding any confusion about who<br />

could besupported by its services.<br />

Watercolourist exhibiting<br />

Large, striking and colourful<br />

watercolour<br />

paintings of garden<br />

flowers by Richard Bolton<br />

feature in a new<br />

exhibition at the<br />

McAtamney Gallery,<br />

Geraldine.<br />

Opening to coincide<br />

with the Geraldine Festival,<br />

‘‘A Brush with<br />

Spring’’ will show 10<br />

paintings of rhododendrons,<br />

poppies and<br />

peonies. The paintings<br />

are loose and fluid,<br />

showing the gorgeous<br />

colours of the flowers<br />

against their foliage.<br />

‘‘Flowers are a new<br />

direction for me and I’m<br />

really pleased with the<br />

results,’’ says Richard.<br />

‘‘It’s nice to paint<br />

something different and<br />

there’s always abit of a<br />

risk, but I think these<br />

have turned out very<br />

well.’’<br />

Watercolour has been<br />

Richard’s preferred<br />

medium since a young<br />

age. His passion has led<br />

to great success, with<br />

many awards and commissions<br />

coming his way.<br />

Richard has also written<br />

books on watercolour<br />

painting that are<br />

sold around the world.<br />

The books led to official<br />

invitations to paint in<br />

One of the Bolton works to be displayed.<br />

China, Tibet, Taiwan<br />

and Israel. He had the<br />

unique experience of<br />

travelling through Tibet<br />

and China at a time<br />

when there were usually<br />

severe restrictions on<br />

visitors.<br />

Now living in Geraldine,<br />

Richard and his Kiwi<br />

wife Margaret frequently<br />

travel toEurope and he<br />

paintsthere whenever he<br />

can. He is now wellknown<br />

here forhis highly<br />

skilful works, especially<br />

New Zealand landscapes.<br />

Carolyn McAtamney,<br />

of the McAtamney Gallery,<br />

says Richard is a<br />

master of watercolour.<br />

‘‘In this new exhibition<br />

he has combinedarealistic<br />

depiction of the<br />

flowers with a more<br />

impressionist style inthe<br />

background. His expertise<br />

and craftmanship is<br />

phenomenal.’’<br />

‘‘Richard has exhibited<br />

atthe McAtamney<br />

Gallery for some years<br />

but this ishis first solo<br />

exhibition. Weare very<br />

excited toshow his wonderful<br />

paintings.’’<br />

The inspirationfor the<br />

garden paintings came<br />

from Richard’s sister­inlaw’s<br />

rhododendron nursery<br />

atWoodbury. The<br />

public isinvited to meet<br />

Richard at theexhibition<br />

opening at the McAtamney<br />

Galleryat7pm on 13<br />

<strong>November</strong>.<br />

The exhibition will run<br />

from 14<strong>November</strong> until<br />

24 December.

Bankers help to plant natives<br />

Staff from <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

ANZ have mucked in to<br />

plant hundreds of<br />

natives near the Rakaia<br />

Walkway.<br />

Each year the bankers<br />

volunteer to support the<br />

community and this year<br />

16 of the ANZ team<br />

assisted locals by cutting<br />

weed mat, digging holes<br />

and planting shrubs such<br />

as hebes, kowhai, lancewood<br />

and muehlenbeckia<br />

at morning or afternoon<br />

sessions in Rakaia.<br />

Many of the plants<br />

were propagated and<br />

donated by Rakaia<br />

people.<br />

Previously ANZ staff<br />

have completed ameals<br />

on wheels run, helped<br />

Lagmhor School with a<br />

peastraw fundraiser and<br />

painted an exhibition<br />

space at <strong>Ashburton</strong> Art<br />

Gallery.<br />

The Rakaia beautification<br />

project is part of<br />

the Rakaia Community<br />

Association’s plan to<br />

further develop the<br />

nearby walkway, which<br />

runs for alittle over 4km<br />

from Salmon Tales to<br />

the western edge of the<br />

town (Wolseley road).<br />

The walkway offers<br />

biking, running and<br />

walking opportunities<br />

for locals and visitors,<br />

and plans are in place to<br />

extend it further in the<br />

future.<br />

Historically the land<br />

was wildly overgrown<br />

and covered in gorse<br />

and broom.<br />

The Rakaia Walkway<br />

project was aNZGardener<br />

of the Year finalist<br />

and has been developed<br />

with thousands of<br />

hours of community<br />

labour.<br />

Posters express visions for peace<br />

Local young artists have got behind aPeace<br />

Poster competition promoted by <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

County Lions.<br />

Creating the peace posters is seen as away<br />

to give children the chance to express their<br />

visions of peace and inspire the world<br />

through art and creativity.<br />

The contest has been run by Lions clubs<br />

around the world for 30 years<br />

The local competition was run in conjunction<br />

with <strong>Ashburton</strong> Art Gallery and aimed<br />

at 11­13 year olds.<br />

It was won by St Joseph’s School student<br />

Sophia Clifford, with Amalia Worsfold the<br />

runner up.<br />

Sophia explored peace by portraying two<br />

contrasting views of the world, one with<br />

pollution/war and one showing harmony. She<br />

linked them with abridge.<br />

Council CEO Hamish Riach comments<br />

Preparingfor an emergency<br />

Earlier this week, Council<br />

staff and representatives<br />

from our local<br />

emergency services hunkered<br />

down for aday of<br />

training on responding to<br />

an Alpine Fault magnitude<br />

eight event. The<br />

purpose was to give staff<br />

the chance to test their<br />

skills and get afeel for<br />

the emergency operations<br />

centre environment<br />

they’d be working<br />

in. It got me thinking<br />

about the importance of<br />

everyone coming<br />

together and working as<br />

one, from services and<br />

volunteers right through<br />

to you, our community.<br />

Major events, whether<br />

they be floods, snow<br />

storms, earthquakes or<br />

other emergencies can be<br />

unpredictable and chaotic.<br />

We can’t always be<br />

sure when they will happen<br />

or their severity, but<br />

we can prepare ourselves<br />

as best as possible to<br />

manage the situation.<br />

Preparation can happen<br />

at all levels, from our<br />

qualified emergency<br />

services keeping their<br />

training up­to­date, the<br />

Council having detailed<br />

plans in place ready to<br />

action when something<br />

happens, and residents<br />

having their emergency<br />

survival kits and getaway<br />

kits sorted.<br />

Through all of us<br />

playing our part before<br />

and during these<br />

events, we can try to<br />

minimise the effects<br />

these emergencies will<br />

have on our community.<br />

Many of you may<br />

have already been in an<br />

emergency before and<br />

have made yourselves<br />

as prepared as possible<br />

for any future events.<br />

For others, there may<br />

be a sense of apathy<br />

that anything could happen.<br />

But, as a civil<br />

defence campaign once<br />

pointed out, what never<br />

happens, happens.<br />

Has your family got<br />

their survival and getaway<br />

kits ready? Do you<br />

have the essentials sorted<br />

to look after yourselves<br />

for three days? Do you<br />

know what to do if power<br />

is lost and you can’t<br />

access the internet or TV<br />

for information? Who is<br />

collecting the kids from<br />

school? Where will you<br />

meet or leave amessage at<br />

if you can’t contact each<br />

other? These are all issues<br />

that can be prepared for<br />

now to avoid added stress<br />

when something happens.<br />

There are great<br />

resources available online<br />

to tell you how to make<br />

your emergency kits and<br />

what items you’ll need.<br />

You’ll also find aHousehold<br />

Emergency Plan with<br />

checklists and spaces to<br />

put important contacts and<br />

phone numbers. Simply<br />

visit getthru.govt.nz.<br />

Although we never wish<br />

for emergencies to happen,<br />

we can all do something<br />

now to make sure we<br />

can get through if and<br />

when it does. If you need<br />

to update or make your<br />

emergency kits, why not<br />

take the time this weekend<br />

to get prepared? It really is<br />

time well spent.<br />

Celebrating Success<br />

Over the past week, we have celebrated the<br />

success and hard work ofour Year 11, 12 and 13<br />

students through prize-givings. Itishumbling to<br />

hear the achievements of these fantastic young<br />

people.Prize-givingsare avaluable timetopause,<br />

reflect and celebrate achievements. Life isbusy.<br />

As we move towards exams, summer jobs and<br />

for those leaving school, the next step, itiseasy<br />

to constantly look ahead and focus on what is<br />

approaching.Weall need to ensurethatwetake the time on occasions to<br />

step back and appreciate our achievements along the way.<br />

NCEAExams<br />

NCEA external exams are just beginning. They run from 08 <strong>November</strong><br />

through to 03 December.Iwish all students who aretaking partinexams<br />

all the best. Itisalso worth remembering that the <strong>Ashburton</strong> College<br />

Libraryisopen most evenings during the week from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. At<br />

the Library, therewill be teachers presenttohelp students revise arange<br />

of subjects in preparation for their exams. The timetable posted in the<br />

Librarygives further information around these study sessions.<br />

Leadership<br />

Our senior students have finished at school for <strong>2019</strong> and have gone on<br />

study leave in preparation forNCEA exams.When this happens,onlyYear<br />

9and 10 students are left atCollege. The Year 10 students are now the<br />

‘leaders’–the oldest and most experienced students left atschool. This<br />

brings responsibilitywith it.<br />

Year 9students also have aleadership role to play over this time. Inthe<br />

coming weeks,Year 8students from contributing schools will be visiting<br />

the College to get information, meet people and experience lessons as<br />

part oftheir transition into Year 9in2020.When these students visit the<br />

school,they will be lookinguptothe currentCollege students to see the<br />

AshCollWay –how we do things hereat<strong>Ashburton</strong> College.<br />

Fortunately,our Year 9and 10 students arenot new to leadership.Asthe<br />

eldest students at aschool in the past -beitprimary,intermediate or both<br />

-they have experienced what it means tobearole model for younger<br />

students. Many have also taken on leadership roles in cultural, sporting,<br />

community orclassroom contexts. Along the way, they will have made<br />

apositivecontribution and made mistakes.Thisisnormal,and all partof<br />

growing as aperson.<br />

The final weeks of school are the next opportunity for our students to<br />

step up and challenge themselves.Welook forward toseeing our Year 9<br />

and 10 students model the College Values by AchievingQuality, Showing<br />

Pride and Having Respect while also growing their own leadership and<br />

role-modelling skills.Theyare,after all,our next generationofschool and,<br />

eventually,communityleaders.<br />

This included a Christmas bracket with the well-received ‘Holly Jolly<br />

As well as performances by the whole choir, some of the young musicians<br />

Annual Chess Match–<br />

ThirdConsecutiveVictory to the Staff<br />

This event is steeped in the annals of historical activities at <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

College. Aset game of Chess is drawnout of ahat, in the staffroom at Staff<br />

Briefing to ensure witnesses! We are assured that this annual end-of-year<br />

eventstartedasaveryformal affair,with players wearing ‘boards’depicting<br />

their positions. Atsome stage it morphed into the eventitistoday, always<br />

alot of fun, and providing wonderful opportunities for students to douse<br />

staff and viceversa.<br />

This game, held this year after weather delays on Friday 25 October and<br />

still in cold conditions, is then played out on the College Chessboard with<br />

‘players’moved according to the real movesofthe original game. Assisted<br />

by copious amounts of water and precarious forms oftransport toremove<br />

‘dead’players,the event provided afun entertainmentoption at lunchtime.<br />

As is also traditional, the staff moves are made byalong-serving, retiring<br />

staff member.<br />

This honour went this year to fortynine year-long Historyand Lawteacher<br />

Mark Gleason, as he changed from his customary position as ‘King’player<br />

on the chessboard.<br />

Making the moves for the students this year was Andrew Phimester with<br />

Sound Results at NewZealand Schools’<br />

National Mountain- Biking Championships<br />

The<strong>Ashburton</strong>College team<br />

of (pictured right, lefttoright)<br />

Jack Savage,BradBlundell,<br />

Riley Blundell,Mya Johnston<br />

and Holly Trotter competed<br />

in this eventinDunedin<br />

early October,overthe three<br />

disciplines of Enduro, Down<br />

Hill and Cross Country. At this<br />

event, spread across grades,<br />

over 400 riders competed,representing 108 schools from throughout New<br />

Zealand.<br />

Jocelyn Johnston, Manager, said that the tracks at Signal Hill were fast and<br />

dry and the sun shone on the Enduro event on Friday, with all of the team<br />

riding well.<br />

However, overnight rain meant the Downhill track was muddy for the<br />

practise runs and heavy rain just before the race created very challenging<br />

conditions toride in, with everyone riding cautiously to make it down the<br />

technical course. Unfortunately Brad got aflat tyre and wasunabletofinish<br />

therace, but everyone else washappytomakeitdownsafely.<br />

Sunday was avery early start for Cross-Country. With the tracks having<br />

dried out slightly, conditions were much better for racing. All of the team<br />

completed the course in goodtime amongst some very tough competition.<br />

Final OutdoorEducation Event-Year 12 Cycle Tour<br />

On 17 and 18 October College Year 12 Outdoor Education students<br />

took partintheir last tripfor theyear.<br />

The cycle tour group initially utilised <strong>Ashburton</strong>’s Mountain BikeTrack and<br />

then continued down the <strong>Ashburton</strong>River Trail/WalkwayTrack to Hakatere.<br />

Outdoor Education teacher Luke Martin said that the students got to test<br />

their abilityonthe Mountain BikeTrack and at the Skills Park,beforeacalmer<br />

ride to thecoast.The weatherwas perfect on theThursday, thesun wasout<br />

which meant safe and easy riding conditions. Two ofCollege’s Japanese<br />

exchange students Yuno Hioki and Hiromune Kakeda attempted aset of<br />

the smaller jumps at the Skills Park,excited at nothavingexperienced such<br />

an opportunitybefore.<br />

Arriving at the Hakateresettlement, it wastimetoset up camp oppositethe<br />

beach and enjoyawell-deserved rest afterseveral hours of riding.<br />

Unfortunately, the weather changed overnight and was cold and rainy in<br />

the morning.Under tree cover the students practised their puncturerepair<br />

skills, before heading back. Track conditions were now alot more fun, or<br />

more scary, depending onyour view! It was impossible tonot get muddy<br />

and the conditionscertainly made the trip back alot moreinvolved foreach<br />

rider. Corners became slippery, with puddles there tocatch afront wheel<br />

and send the rider off if inattention crept in.<br />

Fortunately, all students made it back in one piece, although the need for<br />

ashower was on everyone’s mind with mud, mud, mud, everywhere. The<br />

students gained alot from the trip and it wasagreat waytofinish theyear.<br />

Nowitistimefor them to finishtheir theoryworkand evaluations of the trip<br />

in order to gain their final credits in Outdoor Education.<br />

Working as one for safety<br />

Working together to<br />

spread messages of safety<br />

to people in the community<br />

saw the first­ever<br />

Safety Village set up at<br />

the <strong>Ashburton</strong> A&P<br />

Show.<br />

It was a combined<br />

effort, set up by Safe<br />

Communities <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

District, between 12 Mid<br />

Canterbury community<br />

safety agencies.<br />

They all had their own<br />

tents, set up in a giant<br />

circle, to cover different<br />

aspects of safety themed<br />

around ‘‘keeping ourselves<br />

and our families<br />

safe’’.<br />

Among those to take<br />

part were crews from Fire<br />

and Emergency New<br />

Zealand (FENZ) spreading<br />

the word on good fire<br />

safety practices with alive<br />

fire display, interactive<br />

activities such as the<br />

Escape My House virtual<br />

fire safety programme,<br />

the evacuation challenge<br />

inflatable maze, as well as<br />

takeaway pamphlets and<br />

stickers.<br />

Fire and Emergency<br />

New Zealand fire risk<br />

management officer<br />

Bevan Findlay said the<br />

village was agreat chance<br />

to get safety messages out<br />

to alot of people at one<br />

time.<br />

He said it was the first<br />

big collaborative project<br />

for the community group<br />

as away of ‘‘helping the<br />

community and making<br />

them safer’’ and there<br />

was already talk of continued<br />

collaboration for<br />

next year.<br />

Old harvester with new message<br />

By Toni Williams<br />

John Hall bought a1963<br />

Massey Ferguson 788<br />

model combine harvester<br />

around 30 years ago.<br />

It’s served him well<br />

cutting white clover on<br />

the farm, but is now<br />

mostly used for fun.<br />

And it still runs ‘‘really<br />

well’’.<br />

It made an appearance,<br />

with a message, at the<br />

Mid Canterbury Vintage<br />

Machinery Club, on site<br />

at the <strong>Ashburton</strong> A&P<br />

Show last weekend, and<br />

featured in the Grand<br />

Parade.<br />

The message ‘Farmers<br />

feed cities’ was agentle<br />

reminder to people in the<br />

community about the<br />

contribution farmers give<br />

to their lives.<br />

It was amessage, Mr<br />

Hall saw at aploughing<br />

championships in<br />

Ontario, Canada, where<br />

farmers are valued for<br />

their contribution.<br />

It tickled his fancy, and<br />

he brought the message<br />

home.<br />

This weekend he<br />

thought it was timely to<br />

use it.<br />

‘‘We’re proud farmers,<br />

but we don’t like what’s<br />

happening (farmers feeling<br />

under siege and misrepresented).Ithink<br />

it’s a<br />

true statement,’’ he said.<br />

The combine, initially<br />

owned from brand new by<br />

the Maw family of Barrhill,<br />

is powered by a<br />

Perkins motor. It has a10<br />

foot cut.<br />

In keeping with the<br />

theme of the show ‘Seeds<br />

of Mid Canterbury’, the<br />

combine sat along side 54<br />

other tractors, owned by<br />

club members, which were<br />

set up with aplough, discs,<br />

drills, a truck for carting,<br />

and atractor and baler. The<br />

combine’s final outing will<br />

be to the club’s Wheat and<br />

Wheels Rally, at the property<br />

of Anthony Hampton,<br />

in early April, 2022.<br />

Win for Skyla and Dag<br />

The bond between Mt Somers<br />

shepherd Skyla Taylor and four<br />

year old heading dog, Dag, helped<br />

them secure the maiden win at the<br />

recent Tux New Zealand Yarding<br />

Challenge South Canterbury heat,<br />

at Springbank Farm, in Pleasant<br />

Point.<br />

The win, in which Skyla and Dag<br />

beat second placed competitor<br />

Simon Chamberlain and dog Indy<br />

by 8.5 points, will see the duo<br />

advance tothe South Island event,<br />

in Blenheim, early next year.<br />

It was the first time Skyla had<br />

competed in the event so gaining<br />

the qualifying time to advance<br />

further was apleasant surprise.<br />

Skyla, 26, has been shepherding,<br />

and entering local dog trial competitions,<br />

for the past seven years,<br />

preferring to stick to the local trials<br />

close to home. Along with the<br />

accolade of winning she also<br />

received prize money.<br />

She has six dogs but for yarding<br />

events only uses her favourite ­<br />

male heading dog, Dag ­who she<br />

has had since he was eight weeks<br />

old.<br />

Skyla Taylor and heading dog,<br />

Dag, share aspecial bond.<br />

(Photo supplied)<br />

They were competing again at<br />

the <strong>Ashburton</strong> A&P Show last<br />

weekend.<br />

The maiden win, considered a<br />

junior category in the competitions,<br />

is aboost to her early dog<br />

trialling experience, especially as<br />

it’s something she’s always wanted<br />

to do.<br />

‘‘I haven’t competed in the big<br />

(open) competitions, I’ve been<br />

doing the local ones around where<br />

I’ve been shepherding,’’ she says,<br />

and admits she is keen to stick to<br />

the maiden events for now.<br />

She has just returned from an<br />

overseas trip exploring the United<br />

Kingdom and Europe, but previously<br />

worked inSouthland and<br />

most recently, was head shepherd<br />

at Mt Somers Station.<br />

The move from Southland to<br />

Mid Canterbury, she said, came<br />

from seeking a change in landscapes.<br />

The former Telford student, who<br />

studied for a Diploma in Rural<br />

Business, was born and raised in<br />

rural Five Forks, near Oamaru.<br />

Her grandparents, Fay and Bruce<br />

McNab, owned afarm in the area.<br />

‘‘The family has been farmingall<br />

my life, so I’ve grown up with<br />

shepherding,’’ she said.<br />

Since returning from her trip she<br />

has continued working in the Mt<br />

Somers area picking up casual<br />

shepherding work.<br />

First ECan meeting for Mackenzie<br />

Mid Canterbury farmerIan<br />

Mackenzie has taken his place at<br />

the Environment Canterbury<br />

(ECan) table, effortlessly stepping<br />

into arole as councillorafter<br />

winning one of two Mid<br />

Canterbury/Opakihi regional<br />

constituency positions in the local<br />

body election.<br />

The council, madeupofIan<br />

Mackenzie, John Sunckell,<br />

Elizabeth McKenzie, Peter Scott<br />

(deputy chair),Vicky Southworth,<br />

Phil Clearwater, Claire McKay,<br />

Grant Edge, Megan Hands, Craig<br />

Pauling, Jenny Hughey(chair),<br />

Tane Apanui, Lan Pham and<br />

NicoleMarshall, is the first fully<br />

electedregionalcouncil since the<br />

Governmentsacked the standing<br />

council back in 2010.<br />

It was run by commissioners<br />

until 2016, when partial democracy<br />

was returned.<br />

Mr Mackenzie said the first<br />

ECan meeting, held on October<br />

24, saw council staff brief elected<br />

members to bring them up to date<br />

with the process of running<br />

Environment Canterbury.<br />

There was alot of listening, he<br />

said.<br />

‘‘It’s interesting that the nonfarming<br />

councillorsseem to be<br />

extremelyenthusiastic about<br />

tryingtolearn about new<br />

technologies that may be getting<br />

produced by AgResearchand<br />

various other research<br />

organisations,that will enable<br />

farmers to becomesuper heroes<br />

when it comes to the<br />

environment.’’<br />

But he said there was alot of<br />

technology already in use in<br />

modern agriculture ­which was a<br />

lot different from the systemsused<br />

two generations ago.<br />

‘‘One of the things Iwant to<br />

achieve in the short­term is try to<br />

help thesenew councillors,who<br />

are all quite green,understand<br />

modern agriculture...thereisabit<br />

of learning to be done. There is a<br />

bit of achasm there Isuspect.’’<br />

He said the election of<br />

environmentalist Jenny Hughey as<br />

ECan chairwoman had seen ‘‘a<br />

very sensible woman elected to the<br />

chair’’ with plenty of governance<br />

experience.<br />

MrMackenzie too has<br />

experience in governance roles<br />

having servedonthe boards of<br />

several commercial businesses,<br />

charitableand community groups,<br />

governmentand NGOgroups.<br />

He also served some yearson<br />

the regional counciltransport<br />

committee,but was better known<br />

for his involvementwith water and<br />

the environment.<br />

He said upcoming challenges for<br />

thecouncil, and farmers, will<br />

include any essential freshwater<br />

plans imposed by governmentand<br />

now being considered by Cabinet<br />

members.<br />

Challenges ahead,<br />

vigilance needed<br />

‘‘There are still challenges ahead, and<br />

farmers need to be aware that the risk of<br />

getting (stock) infected with Mycoplasma<br />

bovis (Mbovis) is still very real,’’<br />

says members of the Mbovis Programme.<br />

The arrival ofthe cattle disease into<br />

New Zealand is one of the greatest<br />

biosecurity challenges the country has<br />

ever faced, and the Mbovis Programme<br />

is aworld first attempt to eradicate the<br />

‘‘insidious cattle disease from our<br />

national herd’’.<br />

Last week the independent Technical<br />

Advisory Group (TAG) to the Mbovis<br />

Programme, made up of an international<br />

group of technical experts to<br />

provide critical advice and review ofthe<br />

Programme’s work, and progress<br />

towards eradication, released theirlatest<br />

report stating eradication was still considered<br />

possible.<br />

And members of the Mbovis Programme<br />

reminded farmers to remain<br />

vigilant with their animal movement<br />

records and on­farm biosecurity<br />

measures to prevent infection.<br />

‘‘If we allowed ittogounchecked we<br />

estimate it would cause $1.3 billion in<br />

productivity losses in the first ten years.<br />

It would also increase our use of<br />

antibiotics in cattle, cause animal welfare<br />

issues, and challenge our open<br />

approach to farming, which is based on<br />

extensive movement of cattle,’’ they<br />

said.<br />

‘‘We expect that the majority of<br />

infected farms will have been found by<br />

late 2020, after which there will be a<br />

long­term surveillance effort, to ensure<br />

that we have found all of the infected<br />

cattle.’’<br />

‘‘Four percent of New Zealand’s<br />

24,000 farms have been under restrictions<br />

and required testing due to<br />

possible exposure to Mbovis. To date<br />

there have been 201 farms found to be<br />

infected, with 185 of those depopulated,<br />

cleaned and disinfected, and being<br />

supported back to farmingfree from the<br />

disease.’’<br />

‘‘The three partners have been working<br />

to continuously improve the Programme,<br />

seeking regular review by<br />

independent experts, as well as feedback<br />

from affected farmers and industry<br />

groups.<br />

‘‘The Programme has paid out over<br />

$100 million in compensation to affected<br />

farmers, and completed more than one<br />

million tests in our labs. The length of<br />

time to test samples has been drastically<br />

reduced, and the average compensation<br />

claim is now paid within 23 working<br />

days.<br />

‘‘We have rolled out anew information<br />

management tool to give us better<br />

insights about what’s happening in the<br />

field, and we’ve increased our management<br />

and leadership in the regions,<br />

getting decisions made locally, and<br />

quickly.<br />

farmers need to be aware that the risk of<br />

getting infected with Mbovis is still very<br />

real.’’<br />

Farmers wait, wonder over water<br />

Mid Canterbury farmers<br />

are in aholding pattern<br />

waiting for the outcome<br />

of the Government<br />

Essential Freshwater plan<br />

which, at its close last<br />

week, had attracted more<br />

than 12,000 submissions.<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> arable farmer<br />

David Clark questioned<br />

how any government<br />

could suggestaplan<br />

that resulted in<br />

‘‘economic vandalism’’.<br />

The plan, and its potential<br />

effects, was apoint of<br />

conversation in <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

last week when<br />

National Party opposition<br />

agricultural spokeperson<br />

Todd Muller, from Bay of<br />

Plenty, spoke atapublic<br />

meeting in town, aspart<br />

of his nationwide travels.<br />

Todd Muller<br />

He was accompanied by<br />

Rangitata MP Andrew<br />

Falloon.<br />

Mr Muller was keen to<br />

talk about where the<br />

country was headed,<br />

especially rural New Zealand,<br />

where the Government<br />

wanted to take it,<br />

and the drivers pushing<br />

them.<br />

There were around 100<br />

people there, including<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> council representatives<br />

Environment<br />

Canterbury’s Ian Mackenzie<br />

and Federated Farmers<br />

Mid Canterbury<br />

president David Clark.<br />

‘‘I have afundamental<br />

belief that this Government<br />

has avery different<br />

visiononwhere they want<br />

to take this country, and<br />

particularly the New Zealand<br />

economy, and it is<br />

anchored back to<br />

observationsthat they had<br />

20 years ago,’’ MrMuller<br />

said.<br />

Mr Muller, who has a<br />

rural background, was<br />

aware of the highs and<br />

lows of farming.<br />

He spoke about capital<br />

gains tax, climate change<br />

(and reducing methane/<br />

emission levels without<br />

threatening food production)<br />

and the Emissions<br />

Trading Scheme,<br />

‘‘seen (by the Government),<br />

in this issue at<br />

least, it would be better to<br />

work with farmers than<br />

against them’’.<br />

He acknowledged the<br />

world­classeffortsofNew<br />

Zealand farmers already<br />

in place and spoke of the<br />

Government needing<br />

‘‘perspective’’ about<br />

where New Zealand falls<br />

on aglobal­scale.<br />

The elephant in the<br />

room was the freshwater<br />

plan ­ saved until last ­<br />

which among other things<br />

lacked social and<br />

economic analysis.<br />

His words opened abig<br />

response from the crowd,<br />

including Mr Clark, an<br />

arable farmer, who shared<br />

detailed effects the proposed<br />

freshwater plan<br />

would have on his farm<br />

operation. It was acomparativeanalysis<br />

based on<br />

areportdone by Environment<br />

Canterbury’s head<br />

scientist Dr Tim Davie in<br />

2017, using similar cutbacks<br />

for the Waihora<br />

Selwyn Zone.<br />

‘‘We run areasonably<br />

atypical irrigated, arable<br />

system much like any<br />

other in this district,’’ he<br />

said.<br />

‘‘And we budgeted,<br />

based on going back to<br />

dryland breeding ewes,<br />

which coincidentally was<br />

the farming system that<br />

was on the farm when we<br />

came to this district in<br />

1994, so it’s a relatively<br />

easy process of lifting out<br />

the 1994 budgets and<br />

annual accounts, and<br />

changing them to today’s<br />

values.’’<br />

It was based on 3,000<br />

ewes and 50 hectares of<br />

dryland crop.<br />

‘‘Our crop income<br />

would reduce by 92<br />

percent. Our sheep gross<br />

income would reduce by<br />

62 percent. Our lamb<br />

purchases would reduce<br />

Studies outline cost to farming, economy<br />

Economic modelling by<br />

DairyNZ shows the proposed<br />

Essential Freshwater<br />

package could significantly<br />

harm New<br />

Zealand’s dairy sector<br />

and the wider national<br />

economy.<br />

Following the government’s<br />

September<br />

release of proposed<br />

freshwater regulations,<br />

DairyNZ initiated three<br />

studies into the potential<br />

economic effects of the<br />

Essential Freshwater<br />

proposals. Two of these<br />

economic studies were<br />

independent and all three<br />

have been peer­reviewed.<br />

The economic studies<br />

are supported by additional<br />

technical research<br />

by DairyNZ which analyses<br />

the likely water quality<br />

improvements.<br />

DairyNZ chief executive,<br />

Dr Tim Mackle said<br />

economic modelling<br />

showed the proposed<br />

Essential Freshwater policy<br />

package was one of<br />

the largest economic<br />

challenges posed to the<br />

dairy sector in ageneration.<br />

‘‘It’s full effect could<br />

lead to afall in our GDP<br />

of $6 billion by 2050,<br />

without even adding<br />

additional costs related<br />

to climate change,’’ he<br />

said.<br />

‘‘But what is really<br />

crucial is that we believe<br />

other options are available<br />

to improve and<br />

strengthen the protection<br />

of ecosystem health.‘‘<br />

DairyNZ have outlined<br />

those options in their<br />

submission to government<br />

on the proposals.<br />

‘‘The proposed freshwater<br />

changes would<br />

result in significant<br />

declines in milk production<br />

and is therefore a<br />

serious threat to the<br />

international competitiveness<br />

of New<br />

Zealand’s dairy sector.<br />

‘‘However, water quality<br />

and emissions gains can<br />

still be made with less<br />

stringent reforms, at a<br />

lesser cost to the New<br />

Zealand economy. Farmers<br />

care deeply about<br />

the environment and<br />

have been doing their bit<br />

to protect the environment<br />

and our waterways<br />

for some time,’’ said Dr<br />

Mackle.<br />

‘‘Farmers are absolutely<br />

on board with continuing<br />

toplay their part<br />

in improving our waterways,<br />

however stringent<br />

changes cannot be at the<br />

detriment of farming’s<br />

future and the communities<br />

they support.<br />

‘‘We need to approach<br />

this carefully, balancing<br />

environment and economy<br />

­ we can achieve<br />

both goals by working<br />

closely together on this<br />

by 99 percent, sothat’s a<br />

direct impact on store<br />

lamb farmers. Our sheep<br />

net income would reduce<br />

by 28 percent. Our<br />

expenditure on our business<br />

woulddecrease by 70<br />

percent, sothat’s adirect<br />

impact on any businesses<br />

(we use). Our earnings<br />

before interest in tax will<br />

decrease by 68 percent.<br />

Our capital reinvestment<br />

will decrease by 74<br />

percent. Our net profit<br />

will decrease by 105<br />

percent. And our tax paid<br />

will decrease by 75<br />

percent.’’<br />

Mr Clark questioned<br />

how any government<br />

could suggest aplan that<br />

resulted in ‘‘such<br />

economic vandalism’’.<br />

issue.’’<br />

‘‘The economic analysis<br />

shows potential significant<br />

impact. By 2050,<br />

total milk production is<br />

forecast to fall by 24<br />

percent and all national<br />

exports by 5.2 percent or<br />

$8.1 billion.’’<br />

Tax revenuefrom dairy<br />

is also forecast to more<br />
