Trials

at the

helm

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Beingmayorofthe Hurunui district was

neveronWintonDalley’sradar.

But as he reflects on his nine years in

the top job, he says it has been an

interestingjourney, and aprivilege.

‘‘Hopefully, Imet community

expectations,’’ he says.

Mr Dalley, who retiredfrom local

government last month, says,asmayor,

you have to develop ahuge capacity to let

things go. ‘‘You can’t change somethings.

You justcan’t. People, processes,

systems,regulations. All have the ability

to allow or disallowthings to happen.

They can all be handbrakes, or enablers,

dependingonhow peoplewant to use

them.’’

He says, in private enterprise,people

can wakeupwith agood ideaand

implement it by the endofthe day.

‘‘Butinlocal government, three years

later, agood idea probably hasn’t

progressed far past beingagood idea.’’

When he first became mayor, the

global financial crisis had cast ashadow

over the district. The council focused on

financial restraint because of the

financial constraints on ratepayers.

Lowerrate increases and affordability

were the catchcries,which led to the

council savingoncapital projects, and

underfunding infrastructure by taking

the viewitneededto‘‘sweat’’ its assets,

by squeezingthe lastbit of value out of

itemssuch as undergroundpipes.

‘‘In hindsight, we might makedifferent

judgments now. But at the timewewere

doingwhat what we thought was right

and respondingtothe community

through the submission process.’’

Drought hit the districtinhis second

three­year term.

Peter is not about to lose his marbles

By SHELLEY TOPP

Woodend’sPeter Partridge promises he

hasn’t lost his marbles,despite what

some say when they see him driving in

his 1903 DorydeDion replica.

In fact, Peter, who is in his 90s,carries

abag of marblesinthe car with him at all

timestoprove his point. They provide

him with acleverripostetowisecracks.

‘‘If peopletell you you are losing your

marbles, there is no need to visit adoctor

for aremedy,’’ he says. ‘‘All you have to

do is go to the $2 shopand buy some.I’ve

got more marbles than ever now.’’

Peter,aretired engineer, farmer and

contractor, ownsthe car, whichis

finished in fire­enginered, with his wife,

Ruby. He built most of the vehicle

himself, takingover the projectfrom his

late brother when he died.

It tookhim 18 months to complete the

build. Now he enjoys tootling about in

the replica and always dressesinperiod

costume, plus hat,for the outing.

The DorydeDion was one of the first

cars used in Christchurch, after one was

shown at the 1903ChristchurchA&P

show. Peter’sbrother became interested

in building areplica because of that.

Rising population fuels pay rises

By DAVID HILL

Waimakariri’s councillors

are set to receive apay rise.

Mayor Dan Gordon will

receive a$14,000 increase

from the salary paid to

former mayor David Ayers,

while all councillors can

expect apay boost.

The mayor’s annual salary

will rise from $123,068 to

$137,500, while Deputy Mayor

Neville Atkinson will receive

$58,122, an increase of more

than $11,000.

Reporting to last week’s

council meeting, governance

manager Sarah Nichols said

the Remuneration Authority

sets pay, allowances and

expenses for elected

members, based on the

population in the district.

Following areview last

year, the authority set a

remuneration pool of

$488,448 for Waimakariri’s 10

councillors, excluding the

mayor.

It is recommended that the

remaining nine councillors

each receive $47,814

up $5000 on last year, which

is subject to confirmation

from the Remuneration

Authority.

Mr Gordon says he believes

all councillors should be paid

the same. ‘‘We are all equal

around this table. We are all

one, the mayor, deputy mayor

and councillors.

‘‘Setting differentiation

creates division, setting aside

that the Remuneration

Authority has different views

when it comes to the mayor

and deputy mayor, which is

out of my control.’’

Further appointments

were made to council

committees and to serve the

wider region, including

former mayor Mr Ayers being

nominated to continue as the

Waimakariri and Hurunui

2222185-14/11

representative to the

Canterbury Museum Trust

Board.

Mr Gordon says Mr Ayers,

the board’s deputy chair,

brings experience which will

be invaluable as the trust

works on some big projects.

‘‘This is avery important

appointment and the

Canterbury Museum Trust

Board is keen for him to

remain because they have

some major building projects

and challenges.’’

Mr Ayers’ appointment is

subject to the agreement

of the Hurunui District

Council.

Adversity made district stronger

From Page 1

‘‘That becameaserious financial

handbrake on ratepayersand the

community. It didn’tjust affect farmers.

It affected the service sectoraswell.’’

Affordabilitybecame the key driver of

council decisionsonce again, as the

drought persisted for more than three

years. Even beforethe rains came,

disaster struck again—the 2016

earthquake, justthreeweeksafter the

localgovernment elections.

Mr Dalley had decided to standfor

office one last time, saying he could not

walk away from his community while

they continuedtostruggle with the longlasting

effectsofdrought.

The quake was another financial

burden in alitany of unexpectedand

unintended costsand restraintsonavery

smallrating community, whichlives

across amassive area.

But long­term planning had helped put

the council in astrongfinancial position.

‘‘Oneofthe upsides of thosefinancial

constraintsand planning in the past was,

when the earthquakehit, we were in an

exceptionallystrong position to fund the

recovery, as well as carryonbusiness as

usual.’’

Mr Dalley says he is disappointed an

irrigation scheme planned for part of the

district became caught up in environmental

issues. ‘‘I understand the

environmental issues we need to deal

with and the challenges facing the

district as arural agricultural producer.

‘‘ButIbelievethe government is

unfairly targetingagriculture as the area

of reduction to safeguard the standard of

living of everyNew Zealander.

‘‘It is false because it is compromising

food production in thiscountry,which

Winton Dalley ... ‘‘When the earthquake hit we were in an exceptionally strong

position to fund the recovery, as well as carry on business as usual.’’ PHOTO: ROBYNBRISTOW

has one of the lowestcarbon footprints of

any nation.’’

The risk is that New Zealanders’ food

may eventually havetobeproduced

offshore,inacountrywith ahigher

carbonfootprint,and imported into New

Zealand.

He says he is not an antienvironmentalist,and

does not deny

climate change, but simply wantsto

establish asustainableposition.

Establishing aYouth Council, the

World War 1and ArmisticeDay

commemorations, and the centenary of

the former Soldiers’ Block at Hanmer

Springs are highlightsofhis term.

As for the future of local government,

he remains committed to localdecisionmaking.

‘‘I am very strong on localism —

decisions being made at the lowest level

possible.’’

He is lookingforward to spending

more time with his wife,Jean,his family,

and seven grandchildren. He remains

involved in several groups and committees

that grewout of adversity during the

drought and quake,and is looking

forward to ‘‘running my own diary’’.

Critically endangered hoiho wins Bird of Year contest

The hoiho, or yellow­eyed

penguin, is this year’s Bird of

the Year winner, with more

than 12,000 votes.

The critically endangered

birds are one of the rarest

penguins in the world, with

Celebrations mark 150 years

By SHELLEY TOPP

Aflowering cherry tree has

been planted in the grounds

of Loburn School to mark the

school’s 150th anniversary.

Celebrations, which also

incorporated Okuku School,

began at the school on Friday

morning with the annual pet

parade. Devonshire teas

were provided throughout

the day by the Loburn

Women’s Institute and the

school’s jubilee committee

members.

Registrations for the event

took place later that night,

with agathering to allow

former pupils from both

schools the chance to catch

up.

Okuku School celebrated

its centenary in 1986, but

closed in 1987, with the

pupils moved to Loburn

School.

Because of this, it was

decided to include Okuku

School in celebrations.

Loburn School principal

Stuart Priddy, in his welcome

speech, said the weekend was

about nostalgia.

‘‘Occasionally we are

permitted the luxury of

looking back.’’

Saturday’s programme

included awaiata by the

Loburn School kapa haka

group, and the cutting of the

celebration cake which was

made by Loburn School

teacher Katie Steele and her

sister, Susie Lowe.

The cake was cut by Des

Terry, aged 89, the oldest

former Loburn School

student attending the

celebrations, and Tyler

Goddard, aged 5, the school’s

Later in the day, Bill Ensor,

School, rang the school bell

on behalf of all the students

and families of Okuku School

and, after that, Des and Tyler

rang the Loburn School bell

to end the formal afternoon

ceremony.

The cherry tree was also

planted on Saturday.

Celebrations continued on

Options for park-and-ride explored

By STAFF REPORTERS

Direct commuter busestocentral

Christchurch fromRangiora and Kaiapoi,

together with park­and­ride facilities,are

beingexplored.

The directbus optioncould start when

the Christchurch Northern Corridor

opensmid next year.

EnvironmentCanterbury(ECan), the

WaimakaririDistrict Counciland the New

Zealand Transport Agency(NZTA) are

consultingWaimakariri residents over a

new, direct commuterbus service that

woulduse new carpool lanesbeing built

from the TramRoad on­ramp along the

northern corridor.

The community is being askedifit

supports the commuter proposal, funding

options, and preferencesfor where parkand­ride

facilities should be sited.

ECan’s senior manager of public

transport,Stewart Gibbon, says the

consultation is around the nature of the

services proposed and the level of support

for abetter,more convenient way to

commute.

‘‘To provide adirect commuterservice

from both Rangioraand Kaiapoi would

require additional Waimakariri targeted

public transport rates, beyond what is

currently rated for. We need to knowifthe

community supports the concept and

agrees thatpartly funding the proposed

service via ratesisagood idea.’’

Public transport is fundedthrougha

combination of central government grants,

fares from users, and targeted localrates

set by ECan.

NZTAhas agreed to coverits portion of

the funding required and the Waimakariri

councilhas alreadybudgetedmoney to

investigatepark­and­ridefacilities. This

leaves the portion required through ECan

rates now up for consultation.

NZTA’s director of regional

relationships, JimHarland, says the

completion of the northern corridor and

the carpool lanespresented achance to

change habits early, beforepredicted

populationgrowth led to more vehicles.

‘‘Car­pooling and taking public

transport is agood way to reduce traffic,

beat rising petrolpricesand helpthe

environment. We want to provide amore

balanced transport system.

‘‘The proposed direct commuterbus

service is agood new optionfor the

Waimakariri community, and it willhelp

reduce single occupancytraffic, meaning

less congestion, reducedemissions and,

importantly, astress­free journey for

commuters.’’

ECan is considering operatingthree or

four bus runs each week­day morning

directly from the Rangiora and Kaiapoi

park­and­ridefacilities. It wants feedback

on the bestdropoffpoints and times.

The services willbeseparatefrom the

existing Blue Line service, meaning

Rangiora passengerswould not travel via

Kaiapoi.

The Waimakariri council will ensure

park­and­ride facilitiesare available in

both Kaiapoi and Rangiora by the time the

commuterservice begins.

MayorDan Gordonsays the proposals

are about using what is available now and

usingitwell,aswellastrying some new

things, looking at options and working

with partners.

The council has budgeted for parkand

ride facilitiesand is exploring whereto

put them in Rangiora and Kaiapoi to

provide convenient parking and to

connect people with carpooling and buses.

Mr Gordon saidhewould like to see

ECan consider ashuttle servicetohelp

connect residents, particularlythosein

retirementvillages, with servicesin

Kaiapoi and Rangiora.

‘‘It’s somethingIhave submittedonand

Iknow the Rangiora­AshleyCommunity

Boardhas as well.

‘‘ECan has constraints within its budget,

but for the futuretheyneed to think about

having amore responsiveservicefor those

who needit.’’

our country, and thatiswhy we have

takenabipartisan approach to climate

change, whilecommitting to improving

the bill further should we be voted in at

next year’s election.

Thesechanges are pragmaticand

science­based.

They include that the target for

biologicalmethane reduction be

recommended by the independent

Climate Change Commission,and,

importantly, ensure the commission

considers economic impacts when

providingadvice on targets and

emissions reductions.

The emissionsbudgetswouldbesplit

between biogenic methane and carbon

dioxide, as recommendedbythe

parliamentarycommissionerfor the

environment, and includeagreater

commitment to investmentininnovation

and research and development to find

new solutions for reducing emissions.

National has also proposed

strengthening provisions that consider

the level of actionbeing taken by other

countries andallowtargets to be adjusted

to ensure we remain in step with the

international community, and that the

bill makes clearthe statedaim of the

ParisAgreement is for greenhousegas

reduction to occur in amannerthatdoes

notthreaten foodproduction.

Finally, the bill must ensure the

commission considersthe appropriate

useofforestry offsets,and haveregardfor

thecarbonsink represented by tree

crops,riparian planting, and other farm

biomass.

This is important.Many of our foodproducingtrees,

including pine species,

sequestercarbon justlike Pinus radiata,

yetare excluded from the Emissions

Trading Scheme becausefruit and nut

trees are specifically excludedunder the

outdated Kyoto Protocol.

Riparian plantingsand other farm

biomass are also excluded due to

difficulties in measuringhow much they

sequester, yetmethane emissions, which

also cannot be accurately measured,are

to be included in the Government’sbill,

andfarmers taxed on it.

If we trulywant to make adifference,

then the mostdifficult questionsare yet

to be properly addressed.

It’sdown to business

Iwould liketopublicly thank the

Amberley School kapahaka group for

attending our firstfull meeting.Their

waiata and haka were an inspiration.

We haveappointed representatives to

all external committees and will havefull

membership to council meetings,inclusive

of an Audit and Risk Committee.

The purpose of an Audit andRisk

Committeewill be to have astronger

oversight and review the robust natureof

risk management, its systems, processes

and practices.

The HanmerSprings Community Board

has met, with the South ward,Hurunui,

Amuri, Glenmarkand Cheviot community

committees planned for the next two

weeks.

This is awonderful opportunity for you

to participateinlocal decision­making and

Iurge you to supportthese local

governance committees.

Iattended aLocalGovernment New

Zealand (LGNZ)Mayoral Forumin

Wellington, with the opportunityto

network with mayors fromaround the

country, both new and experienced.

My impression is that thisgroup is highly

focused on achieving the best results for

theirrespective communities.

The Hurunui District Council has

submitted on the government Essential

Freshwater proposal (mfe.govt.nz/sites/

default/files/media/Fresh%20water/

essential­freshwater.pdf)which people

can viewonthe website, and currently

your opinion is welcome in regardtolocal

road conditions, inclusive of speed limits.

Ihaveloved getting out and about in the

community, attending the Cheviot school

125thcelebration, the family­focused

Lantern Festival hostedbyInspire

Church, the Hanmer Springs fete, Hurunui

Garden Festival, Amberley show and the

NorthCanterbury sportsawards.

It is no exaggeration to say thatwehave

exceptional talentinour communities.

The Canterbury Apprentices and

Industry Trainees Graduation Ceremony

was hosted by the Christchurch City

Council, which is part of acollaborative

initiativefor the Mayors Taskforce For

Jobs.Itwas an honour to attend and

represent our district.

We should acknowledge the far­sighted

vision of employers who understand that

the investment in people is avitalpart of

the success of all business.Today’s world

is alifetime of learning and re­learning.

By the time you read this, the Hanmer

Springs Thermal Pool and Spa willhave

celebrated the opening of the new pools

and Conical Thrill. We shouldall rejoice

over this amazing district attraction.

Care urged as drivers take heavy toll on poles

Motorists are beingurged to

take care on NorthCanterbury’s

roads.

Arecent spate of drivers

hitting powerpoles is behind

calls for road users to drive to

theconditions and avoid

distractions.

Since 2014,there have been

more than 100 crashes in the

Waimakariri districtinwhich

drivers have hit power poles,

resulting in one fatality and at

least 15 seriousinjuries.

SergeantRene Pabst,of

Rangiora police, says there have

been several crashesinrecent

weeks where drivers have been

lucky to walk away. He cites

speed and distraction as the

main causes.

Dunn and dusted: 1500 wins chalked up

By SHELLEY TOPP

Woodend Beachharness

racing trainer Robert

Dunnhas trained his

1500th winner, achieving

the milestone duringthe

recent Kaikoura Cup Day

whenHeisenbergtook line

honours.

Heisenberg, driven by

Robert’s eldest son, John,

was the best of three Dunntrainedhorses

in the

$50,000feature race, with

the other two, Stars

Tonightand Franco Niven,

finishingsecond and third

respectively to complete a

spectacular trifecta for the

stable.

Thatsuccess came

immediately afteranother

Dunn­trainedrunner,

Classie Brigade, also

driven by John, scored an

all­the­way win in the

$46,000Kaikoura Cup.

The roll continued for

Robert, who also has a

stable in Auckland, in the

lastraceonthe programme

at the picturesque South

Bay Racecourse when

favourite Jay Tee Tyron,

driven by John, topped the

day off by alsowinning his

race.

Achieving the milestone

on suchabig day on the

New Zealand harness

racing calendar,and in

suchanexciting way, was a

hugethrill forthe trainer,

his family and staff.

Robert runsthe

Auckland stable, withJohn

—one of New Zealand’s

top drivers—in chargeat

Woodend.

‘‘Johnisafantastic

horseman,aterrific

worker and he has terrific

staff at Woodend. They

havedone awonderful

job,’’ Robert said.

‘‘The trifecta was

something prettyspecial,

particularly so because all

those horses wereall

purchased at the yearling

sales.

‘‘When you go and buy

three horses likethat...

and they all turn out to be

nicehorses,itispretty

satisfying.

‘‘Wehave hadagreat run

of buying horsesatthe

yearlingsaleswhich have

beenreally successful.’’

Although Roberthas

trainedmany top horses,

including 2005 New

Zealand Cup winner

Mainland Banner, he rates

1992Auckland Cup winner

Master Musician, a

yearlingsalespurchase,

who raced from two until

he was10inanoutstanding

career,asthe best.

‘‘Hehad everything —

speed, stamina and terrific

courage.Ihave never had a

horse like him with sucha

terrific willtowin,’’ Robert

said.

We have an early Christmas present for farmers!

Get a FREE Logger upgradefor water consent meter,soil moisture

and temperature monitoring equipment.

Are you aware that ECan is focussing on Data Gaps for consent monitoring data and taking follow up action? This is

where alogger has not captured data for aperiod of time and shows in the ECan records as aData Gap. If you are still

using Aquacom monitoring units and the Aquacomnetwork you may be at risk of having Data Gaps.

ECan have been communicating with data providers and farmers advising of data missing going back to 2018 (and in

some cases 2017). This places additional and unnecessary stress on farmers and creates additional work for all of us.

From our experience, most Data Gap issues are with the Aquacom units, so we’ve decided to solve this problem at the

source by offering afree IoT logger in exchange for Aquacom units on properties throughout Canterbury. Farmers

will get an improvement indata timelines, data reliability and eliminate additional expensive Aquacom repair costs.

Not only will we replace your IoT logger, ifyou sign up before the end of November 2019, Watermetrics will waive

your consent monitoring fees from now until the end of 2019 season.

By choosing the free upgrade, you will receive monitoring technology that can add additional sensors to monitor a

number of ‘things’. One such example is our soil moisture and soil temperature sensor. Wecan provide these at

$1,850 each, (500mm probe) plus some installation costs, plus GST.

And the best part? It’s an early Christmas gift -absolutely free upgrade in exchange for your old Aquacom unit.

If you would like to discuss this further,weare at the;

st and 2 nd November: Stand 1220 on the western side of the arena

Southbrook School’s inaugural spring

market fundraiser got agreat boost from

one of the school’s young pupils.

Nine­year­old Ryder Askin­Barclay

raised $600 for his school last Friday by

having his head shaved at the

Southbrook School Spring Market,

sacrificing his much­loved, long, plaited

rat’s tail in the process.

The innovative youngster arranged to

have acollection bucket placed in a

couple of local pubs before the market,

with information saying he was shaving

his head for education. The response

from pub­goers was generous.

The school has benefited from Ryder’s

initiative and he has kept his severed

rats tail as amemento.

Southbrook School board of trustees

chairwoman and parent representative

Liz McClure said Ryder organised the

pub fundraiser himself, and raising so

much money was awonderful effort.

The market had 28 stalls, including

one selling the school’s popular

cookbook, ALittle Slice of Southbrook.

Liz said she was pleased with

attendance at the market, which ran for

four hours.

‘‘It is areal community event and

there has been an incredible turnout.’’

As she beginsher third council term, Cr Doody is

now the only councillor livingwest of Cust,after

former deputy mayor Kevin Felsteadlost hisseatin

Cr Doodyrepresents the Oxford­Ohoka ward, which

Cr Doodysays Oxford might be small, but the town

has alot going for it, withanattractive museum,

KEEP YOUR EYES PEELED

ALL PUPPIES

SHOULD HAVE TAILS

This month, Rangiora VetCentre

celebrates the one-year anniversary

of the banning of tail-docking in dogs

in New Zealand.

In certain breeds, like the Fox Terrier,

Corgi and Rottweiler, breeders had

previously docked puppies’ tails so

that they conformed to adesired look.

Docking was carried out in young

puppies, usually without any

anaesthetic or pain relief. Apart from

the obvious pain this caused, docking

puppies’ tails also frequently gave rise

to ongoing pain from changes to the

nerves caused by severing them.

Tails help dogs with balance and

communication, and while they do

occasionally get injured, studies show

that around 500 dogs need to be

docked to avoid one tail injury.

Given the benefits of having atail,

the risks associated with docking,

and the lack of serious injury to tails,

the benefits of tail docking for nontherapeutic

purposes just didn’t stack

up for organisations which have fought

for this ban for nearly 3decades –the

New Zealand Veterinary Association,

the Veterinary Council of NZ and the

RNZSPCA.

By 2014, there was mounting scientific

evidence against the practice due to an

increased knowledge of pain perception

in neonates, and the argument had

moved away from determining if the

practice was painful to determining if

the practice was necessary.

In 2017, then Minister for Primary

Industries, Nathan Guy, decided that

it was time to prohibit non-therapeutic

docking of dog tails and this came into

NZ law on November 1 st ,2018.

Recently abreeder of Rottweilers was

prosecuted under the new rules, after

amember of the public saw pictures

of puppies for sale missing their tales.

All puppies available for sale should

now, bylaw, have their tails. If you see

docked puppies, please call your SPCA.

It is areal joy tothe vets, nurses and

support staff of RVC towitness the

puppies and dogs of those breeds

who were previously docked, now

coming into our clinics and being

able to fully express their delight in

seeing us, and to communicate with

the other dogs they meet in amuch

more natural way.

Chickensdecide on

co-parenting deal

By RACHEL MACDONALD

Chickens are notoriousfor not beingvery

nice to each other, especiallywhen it

comestootherhens,and their nestsand

babies.

It’s all part of thepeckingorder.

However, at Summerhill’s Hilo Farm,

there’sawee chick —atiny orpington

barnvelder cross —that has three mothers.

One is its humanmum, Jane

Buckingham,who dishes outthe food. The

othertwo are hens,who are busy coparenting

the little one.

More usually, the adoptive mother

wouldhave killedthe chick when she

movedinonits nest and, in the process,

the twoadult birdswould havefought.

Jane feels things haveworked out in this

more unusual manner because she sold

some of her layers, leavingroom for the

others to be abit more flexiblethan usual.

‘‘I used to have 10 layers, but Isold six,

whichmeant Ihad room to leave the

broody hens in the chookhouse,rather

than transferring them to crates to hatch

theireggs, as Iusuallywould,’’ shesays.

‘‘I ended up with one hen sitting on 12

eggs in anest she had builtinthe hay on

the ground under the nestingboxes. Three

of the eggs hatched, but onlyone chick

survived. In the nesting boxes above,Ihad

two other broodiescontemplating families,

and when the chick’s mum got off her nest

to go to eat and drink, one of those broody

hens jumped downand sat on thechick.’’

When the chick’smum returned, she

simply hopped into the nest too, to sit on

her remainingeggs.

‘‘So Iendedupwith two hens in the

same nest,’’ Janesays.

‘‘I can’t thinkofabetter outcomefor the

chick. It cheepstoboth for help and

comfort, and both respond. And usually,

my chicks would be keptsafe in the barn

untilthey’re big enough to see off

predators, but nothing’s goingtoget

through these girls.’’

Jumping day popular

By RACHEL MACDONALD

Oxford Pony Club, once the

training ground of Olympian

Tim Price, runs two annual

fundraising events ayear.

There’s aOne Day Event at

the start of the season, and then

ashowjumping day, which was

held last weekend.

The club was pleased with

the turnout for Sunday’s event,

treasurer Jill Stevenson said.

‘‘Pony club is open to riders

aged under 24 years old, and

this year we had 109 horserider

combinations competing

across three rings.

‘‘They comprised the joint

pony and hack classes, then the

ponies and the hacks

individually.’’

The club has about 20

members this year, and is

growing, Jill says.

However, competitions like

this are open to all­comers,

even those not affiliated to the

pony club network —it’s just a

case of filling in abit of

paperwork.

The outing was held at the

club’s permanent quarters at

the Carleton Domain, where it

has set up base and installed an

arena.

‘‘At the moment, for events

like this, we have to beg,

borrow, and steal jumps and

poles that provide new

experiences for our members

and their ponies. It would be

ideal if we had more of our

own, and that’s what we’re

fundraising for this year,’’ she

says.

‘‘For example, one jump on

Sunday had big butterflies on

the side of it, and many ponies

had no idea what to think about

horse­eating butterflies and

baulked.

‘‘However, at apony club day,

it just takes one brave pony to

give something like that ago,

and others will follow.

‘‘The same goes for our

members; there are things they

won’t try at home, but here,

they support each other into

new confidence.’’

Riding coach Justine

Robinson agrees that things

are looking positive for the

club.

‘‘We have agreat vibe —

everyone works well and we all

put in. Even the younger riders

who aren’t competing pitch in

on days like Sunday, picking up

fallen poles and restoring the

course,’’ she says.

‘‘Another highlight is our

New Year camp up at Quartz

Hill Station, near Windwhistle,

which is achance for members

to get out of the arena and into

big wide open spaces on treks,

bond with each other and their

ponies, and try news things.’’

Animals hoof it to pet day

Loburn School’s annual pet day

took on special significance this

year when it was incorporated

into the school’s 150th

anniversary celebrations.

The traditional family day was

held at the school last Friday on

the opening day of the

celebrations, which

incorporated Okuku School,

which closed in 1987, with many

former pupils from both schools

attending.

Alarge selection of animals

were on show during the day,

including dogs, pigs, sheep,

goats and horses.

The Johnston family’s friendly

poodle/boxer cross Rosco

attracted alot of attention. So

did the three week­old Boer goat

kids owned by Madeleine Bint,

aged 9, of Loburn.

Madeleine said goats made

great pets because they were

friendly and loved cuddles.

School principal Stuart Priddy

likened the pet day to the ‘‘Royal

Show’’ of pet parades in his

opening speech.

Loburn contract shearer

Rowan Nisbett gave asheepshearing

exhibition during the

day and the AMI Fire Safe

yellow fire engine was apopular

attraction among the children.

Devonshire teas, made by the

Loburn Women’s Institute, and

served on vintage china, proved

popular.

Life of local scouting pioneer chronicled

By DAVID HILL

Apassion for family

history and scouting has

uncovered the story

behind New Zealand’s

first scout troop at

Kaiapoi.

Christchurch family

historian Kevin White has

spent the past decade

researching Tuahiwi

schoolmaster David

Cossgrove, who became

New Zealand’s first scout

commissioner.

Kevin, who himself is a

former scout leader and

assistant district

commissioner, was asked

to provide the

commentary for 28 bus

tours out to Kaiapoi

during the centennial

scout jamboree in the

summer of 2007/08.

This set him on the path

to uncover Mr Cossgrove’s

story, which was not

without controversy.

He became headmaster

at St Stephen’s Native

School in Tuahiwi in 1899

after being forced to leave

Westport, where he had

been declared bankrupt

and was implicated in the

accidental death of a

15­year­old boy.

‘‘One day in 1908 David

was on his way to Kaiapoi,

when he had achance

encounter on the banks of

the Cam River with Ted

Mallasch,’’ Kevin says.

‘‘Ted was drilling a

small patrol of boys using

Robert Baden­Powell’s

Shelter ... Scouts build ashelter during the first scout

camp held at Woodend.

Boys,ashis guide.’’

Cossgrove read the

book and was so

impressed he decided all

young New Zealand boys

should know about it.

‘‘David was an

‘‘He had already spent

his adult life serving the

public as ateacher and a

military volunteer.

‘‘He was also skilled at

envisaging the big picture

and he would allow

nothing to get in the way

of achieving his goals.’’

When Cossgrove died 12

years later, in 1920, he

had built scouting in New

Zealand from one

registered patrol to a

movement of more than

30,000 scouts and 5000

leaders.

Not wanting to miss out,

his daughter Muriel

quickly signed up 24 girls

and ateacher at Rangiora

High School, leading to

the formation of ‘‘peace

scouts’’ two years before

Girl Guides was founded.

Cossgrove published a

book for peace scouts and

also established bull pups

for younger boys and fairy

scouts for young girls,

years before Cubs and

Brownies were created in

England.

drive was always to the

By 1915, the movement

had grown sufficiently for

Ruins explored on trip

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The Amberley Mountain

Goats Walking Group

scaled tracks and

explored historical relics

during arecent visit to

the West Coast.

Six men and 12 women,

with an average age of 70,

spent two nights in

Reefton and two in

Westport.

They visited the

historic gold­mining area

of Waiuta, traversed the

Murray Creek Track past

the Inglewood and Ajax

mine sites, and

negotiated the steep

machine track back to

the car park.

The following day they

walked through beech

forest, an easier walk

with more relics of

historic mining

significance, before

heading north to visit

Britannia Battery, awell

preserved piece of goldmining

history.

On the journey home to

North Canterbury, the

group enjoyed ashort

walk around atarn at the

start of the St James

Walkway.

The group meets at the

Westpac Car Park each

Monday at 9.15am for

two­ to four­hour walks.

Anyone is welcome to

By RACHEL MACDONALD

Cust Craft Group’s fundraiser last

weekend was successful,member

RickiSullivan says.

More than140 people—that’s

not includingfriends and family —

visited the St James’ Church and

hall for achancetowin the prizes,

and enjoy club members’ artwork.

Overall, the group raised nearly

$1900for Riding for the Disabled

and Rachel’s House,atrustwhich

supports young parents.‘‘We were

hoping for$1200atthe most, so we

were thrilled,’’ shesays.

‘‘People werestill cominginto

see what we had on display right up

untilpack­uptime. Last time,we

had the Oxford Fete on,onthe

same day,sowedefinitely drew

some numbers from passersby, but

that wasn’tthe case this year,and

the peoplestill came.’’

The overall message from visitors

was that every craftyperson starts

with one stitch, and the creativity

takesoff fromthere. On thattheme,

the club gained four newmembers

on the day. ‘‘The thing is, we’re

pretty much agroup of women.

We’regrowing and encompass all

ages,which is great,’’ Ricki says.

‘‘That said, loads of husbands

came in to look at our workson

Sunday,and we certainlycouldn’t

mountthis kind of event without

our own help, from our husbands.’’

The group meets on thefirstand

When she left schoolMrs Gregory joined

Mrs Gregory joinedthe New Zealand

Banking on human capital

Banks need to take adifferent

approach when lending to farmers, new

Lincoln University research suggests.

Researchers Bruce Greig, Dr Peter

Nuthall and Dr Kevin Old found that the

skills, attitudes and knowledge aperson

has in managing and operating afarm

should be considered when assessing

whether aloan should be given.

Dr Nuthall says banks use historic

business statistics and equity levels to

assess loans and creditworthiness.

‘‘A farm manager’s personal

characteristics are likely to be abetter

predictor of future debt payback

performance,’’ he says.

‘‘They have alifetime of education and

experience. Afarmer’s objectives, and

that of their associated household, can

be considered part of the human capital

which should be considered, including

attitudes to risky situations and their

originating factors.’’

The trio used data from asample of

New Zealand farm owner/operators to

come up with amodel, which they tested

with data from apostal survey.

‘‘The results make it clear amanager’s

personal characteristics are highly

correlated with debt payback and,

logically, are very likely to be the

drivers.’’

Dr Nuthall says it is also important to

note the human characteristics that are

related to payback can potentially be

modified and improved.

Technology helps trucking firm

By GINA MCKENZIE

Technology has transformed the way

Hurunui Transport owner Jon Thomson

runs his Amberley­based business.

‘‘In the 14 years I’ve owned the

business, improvements in technology

have made ahuge difference to the way

we raise, distribute and monitor all of

our jobs.’’

Jon and his team use apiece of

software called MyTrucking, which is

linked to their invoicing system Xero,

and allows them to manage jobs from

start to finish.

‘‘It’s basically like an online diary and

is linked to Xero.

The advantage is that everything is

captured online and we’re not having to

rely on drivers to fill out adocket.

‘‘I can preload jobs and it does away

with the traditional paper diary. It’s

much more efficient —nothing gets lost

and everything flows more smoothly.’’

Jon and his team of three meet at the

beginning of each week to discuss

deliveries for the week, which include

general cartage and fertiliser covering a

wide area from Timaru to Blenheim.

‘‘We go through the fertiliser orders

and what’s come through in the emails

and then put aplan together, so

everyone knows what’s going on and

what’s expected.

‘‘The idea is that if everyone knows

what’s going on, say if Islip up, one of

the drivers might think ‘I can do that on

the way’,’’ Jon says.

Following up the weekly meeting with

emails allows Jon’s drivers to refer to

the task list later in the week to ensure

they’re on track with their jobs.

‘‘They need to be able to go back to an

email or atext or whatever to see what’s

going on and double­check so we’re not

having stuff­ups.’’

Once ajob is completed, Jon’s office

Jon Thomson ... ‘‘I think we’ll see more

technology being used in the transport

industry and it’s going to help us streamline

everything.’’

manager marks it against My Trucking

and that creates an invoice which is sent

to the accountant.

‘‘Our accountant is in Southland so it’s

emails, emails, emails with him. It’s

vital. My Trucking has streamlined the

job process and allows me to be more

hands­on with the business.

‘‘It enables me to offload more of the

office work. Iused to be in the office

every night, which Ihate anytime let

alone at night. Ilike to be out and about

and keeping an eye on things,’’ Jon says.

Mobile technologies like smartphones

have also enabled Jon to manage jobs

when he’s on the go via phone, email and

text message, saving time and making

processes efficient.

‘‘You’re dealing with things as they go,

rather than saying, ‘I will get on to that’,

Ican sort something out while I’m on the

fly, which is definitely agood thing.

‘‘It makes you more accessible and it

definitely makes sorting out jobs easy.’’

Modern GPS systems in fertiliser

spreaders also make the business more

efficient, sending messages directly to

the office.

‘‘Over the last three years we have had

lots of new rules coming in for farmers,

so GPS technology allows us to help

clients meet the fertiliser requirements

through proof of placement. This is

becoming essential.’’

‘‘With this new technology, Ican send

ajob out and the driver sends ajob back

once it is completed and Ican have a

look at it and make sure it’s done right.’’

Jon still relies on the copper network

for his internet but hopes high speed

internet will reach his office soon to

speed things up.

‘‘It’s not too bad but we do have afew

issues with the speed of uploading data.

‘‘We don’t have fibre broadband yet. It

will make ahuge difference when it’s

available.’’

Jon says one of the biggest issues

facing the transport industry is the aging

workforce. He has just hired a17­yearold

female truck driver for the second

season in arow and describes her as a

whizz with both the driving and

technical aspects of the role.

‘‘Younger people take to technology

quickly because they have grown up

with it.

‘‘It’s great to have diversity in the

industry and we need more young

people on board.

‘‘I think we’ll see more technology

being used in the transport industry and

it’s going to help us streamline

everything and keep improving our

efficiency.’’

winner for Southbrook

CRICKET

Canterbury star batsmanJack Boyle

powered Southbrook to an emphatic fourwicketwin

over Lincoln in the latest round

of countrycricket.

Boyle’s classy and composed unbeaten

78 off84balls steered the Southrook side,

playing at home,toavictory on Saturday

that keeps the side at the top of the CRV

Ambreed Country Premier One Day

Competition.

Lincoln won thetoss and batted first,

with wicketkeeper­batsman Nico Lerm

getting his side off to apromising start.

But whennew signing Arafat Bhuiyan

nickedLermoff for arun­a­ball 43, and

then Adam Coleman (46 runs off 75 balls),

Southbrookclawed back control.

From 101/2, Lincoln struggled through

the middle overs before awhirlwind 39 off

25 balls from Blake de Haan got the side up

to 198 runs in its allotted 45 overs.

Southbrook talisman SamErmerins,

who had abreakthroughseason lastyear

as the beaten finalists’best bowler,

grabbed 4/31,while Bhuiyan also claimed

four.

Southbrook wassoon in trouble chasing

on its home ground, reduced to 62/5after

16 overs.

But Boyle would prove the difference,

and whenCanterbury Country paceman

Luan Blom flogged58runs off just41balls,

the four­wicket win came in just the 36th

over.

Conditions tricky

At Darfield Domain, ahowlingnor­west

Batting first, Leeston­Southbridge’s

openers Ben Chamberlain and Joel

Hardenadapted well to the tough

conditions,joining for an 82­run

partnership thatwould ultimatelywin

their side the game.

The visitors struggled throughto156/9

off 45 overs, with Tom Innes the pick of the

bowling, finishing with the fine figures of

5/37, while Canterbury seamer Henry

Shipley went wicketless.

Alister Collins’52runs off 87 balls wasn’t

enoughtocombatthe rising run rateand

the sidefell 10 runs short.

Sealswell beaten

At Pearson Park, Oxford­Rangiora

clubbed the visiting SeftonSeals by 102

runs.

David Fulton’s unbeaten 48 was the

standout performance with the bat, as

Oxford­Rangiora made 166 runs, before

they wereall out in the 41st over. Jed

Roberts and Andrew Laffeyboth pickedup

three wickets.

Josh Mariu and FergusFairbairnripped

through the hapless battinglineup,

grabbing seven wickets between them,and

skittling Seftonfor apaltry64runs in just

18.4 overs.

Century not enough

At Cheviot, abrilliant century fromWill

Hamiltonwasn’t enough to help his

Magpies to pointsover Weedons.

Hamilton’s 113 runs helped lift Cheviot

to an imposing 236/6 off its 45 overs, with

Ted Whelan chipping in withananchoring

53 off 99 balls.

But Hamilton’s thunderwas soonstolen

by Weedons’ Charlie Robson, whose

unbeaten128 off 114 balls,including four

sixes,ensuredathrilling three­wicketwin

with 16 balls to spare.
