By ROBYN BRISTOW

Atornado whipped up during last week’s

southerlystorm ripped the bonnetfrom a

largetractor and rockeditfrom side­toside

as it tore throughOkuku lateinthe

afternoon.

It threw largepines in the air and

dumped them,stripped apine shelter belt,

flattened poplars,tore roofing iron from

sheds and tipped over animal shelters.

As it disappeared, large hailstones fell,

breaking windows and shredding

vegetable and flowergardens.

Doug Paterson, who lives on Browns

Road, Okuku, was clearing scrub last

Wednesday withhis 160­horsepower

tractorwhen the tornado hit.

‘‘I was in theeye of it.The tractorrocked

from side to side. Iwas hanging on to the

steeringwheelasIthought it might tip

over.Itripped off the bonnetand Iput the

grab of the tractor down to pin the bonnet

on the groundand stabilise thetractor.

Doug said the tornado’sfunnel was

abouttwo to threemetres wide.Itwas a

grey colour and 20 metres away fromhim.

It wentfrom being southeastto

northerly as it suckedinthe air and then

began circling withinminutes. ‘‘As it

passed it went from grey to black; really

black,’’ he said.

It rippedgrassout of the ground, and

sucked up trees acouple of 100 metres

either side of him.

public walk in the town

centre, visited the

Future is Bright expo in

the Kaikoura Memorial

Hall and then travelled

for the Prince to check on

the district’s progress in

recovering from the 2016

local organisations for

supporting British

tourists stranded there

in the immediate

aftermath.

The Future is Bright

Seddon, Ward,

Kekerengu, Clarence

and Kaikoura.

Charitable Trust

nice guy and he was

genuinely interested in

the birds.

‘‘It was avery

successful day and it got

the Hutton’s shearwater

birds some publicity on

the international stage.’’

Focus from Dan Gordon, Mayor

Council comes together

The last monthhas been particularly

pleasingand satisfying as Ihave beenable

to join in celebrations to record many great

milestoneswith the community.

High school prize­givings have been

enjoyabletoattend. It’smarvelloustosee

our youngpeople being celebrated for

theirachievements.Also, attending

Loburn School’s 150thanniversary

celebrationwas an honour and privilege.

Iwas humbled to speak at Kaiapoi RSA’s

commemorationofArmistice Day.Two

yearsago Iwas fortunatetoattend the

100thanniversary of theBattle of

PasschendaeleinBelgium, which made

the commemorationmore relevantfor me.

This was aresult of the council’s

twinning relationship withthe province of

Zonnebeke, wheremembers of CCompany

from Kaiapoi and DCompanyfrom

Rangiora formedpart of the Canterbury

regiment which foughtinthe area.

Several local men lost theirlives at

Passchendaeleand it was appropriate

then,asitwas earlier this month, to

acknowledge theirsacrifice.

As well as communitycelebrations,I

attendedthe Local Government New

Zealand mayoral forums, which was a

chance to meet mayors fromaround the

country and withGovernment ministers to

discuss araft of issues, such as water

reform, climatechange, roading and

transport.

Cause of coastal blaze remains unknown

By SHELLEY TOPP

The cause of arecentfire in

the TuhaitaraCoastal Park

remains unknown.

The fire was initially

believed to be causedbya

lightning strike, but North

Canterbury deputy principal

rural fire officer Dale

Wilhelm has ruledthat out.

‘‘The causeofthe fireis

unknown, but it was not

related to the thunder storm

in Christchurchasthe storm

didn’treachthat far north.’’

Firefighters were alerted

by a111 call at 2.55pm on

Mondaylast week and fire

crews remainedatthe park

until 8.30pm.Acrew also

returned to the park the next

day and found two small

hotspots that were

extinguished.

It occurred in sand dunes

about 300m southofthe

WoodendBeach Rd entrance

to the beach.

‘‘Access for firefighters was

limitedtousing the beach,

which made fighting the fire

more difficult. The incoming

tide was of concern as it

furtherreduced the access to

the site,’’Dale said.

‘‘The Woodendbrigade and

WaikukuVolunteer Rural

Fire Force were the initial

crews to arrive.They were

then backed up by Pines

Beach Volunteer Rural Fire

Forcetohelp with fourwheel­driveaccessonthe

beach.’’

Ahelicopter was initially

used to surveythe site to learn

the sizeofthe fire and what

assets were underthreat. It

was then set up with a

monsoon bucket and used to

knockdown the fire, makingit

safe for firefighters to enter

the forest to extinguish it.

Greg Byrnes, general

manager of Te Kohakao

TuhaitaraTrust, which

manages the park,said they

were grateful to the fire

crews.

‘‘From the moment Fire

and Emergencywere on site

they had plans in place to

the peoplewho put their

community first. Most of the

firefighterswere volunteers

who rushed from work, school

pick­ups,and home to get this

fire undercontrol,’’ Greg said.

There is ayear­round fire

Greg said it was important to

Highway work

will cost $3m

A$3million realignment

project to stop the Lewis

River from cutting into State

Highway 7, west of the

HanmerSprings turnoff, has

begun.

New Zealand Transport

Agency portfolio manager

Colin MacKay says the river is

cutting into the highway at

Sylvia Flats, near the Boyle

River. Eventually, it will

undermine it, threatening the

route.

‘‘We need to realign this

roadtoensure it is safely

awayfrom the river and

ensure this key state highway

linking the east and west

coasts and Nelson/

Marlborough remains

resilient and reliable for the

future.’’

The work, which began this

weekwith earthworks,will

continue until May 2020.

Road users will have to

slow down near the work site

while crews, trucks and

machinery are on the

highway, Monday to Saturday

from 7am to 7pm.

The agency has been

workingwith the Department

of Conservation since the

project was proposed as the

areaispart of public

conservation lands.Resource

consents have been required

for all work.

The 700 metres of road

beingrealigned is 3km past

the Boyle River, on the west

side of the Hanmer Springs

turnoff and Island Hills.

SH7 is akey freight and

tourist route. It runsthrough

the Lewis Pass National

Reserve.

In the event of SH1 via

Kaikoura being closed, the

Lewis Pass is the only

highway link between Picton

and the rest of the South

Island.

In coming months, road

users on SH7 may notice

crews:

Shifting felled trees and

vegetation. All beech tree

removal is being done with

guidance from the

Department of Conservation

and to ensure nesting native

birds are not affected. All of

the felled trees will be

stockpiled, either to be

mulched or to be placed over

the old road alignment at the

completion of the project to

re­establishalocal habitat

and vegetation area.

Takingaway about 70,000

cubic metres of soil and rocks

—more than 8000 truckloads.

Workingonearthworks for

much of the summer, constructing

the new alignment.

Surfacing the new road, if

weather permits, this

summer/autumn. If the

weather is wet, sealing may

be completed in the summer

of 2020/21.

The new three­level building

being built on Rangiora’s old

Red Lion Hotel corner site is

scheduled for completion

during the first quarter of

next year.

The building, on the corner

of High and Ivory streets, will

have retail space on the

ground floor and apartments

on the other two floors.

The building’s structure is

made of timber, which

developer John Baigent, of

Christchurch Property

Projects, believes ‘‘may be a

first for abuilding of this size

in Rangiora’’.

The decision to use timber

for the structure —agrowing

trend in multi­storey

construction worldwide —

was originally based on

building time.

‘‘No propping time is

required, compared with

concrete floors,’’ John

explains. ‘‘The weight of the

building is less, therefore

foundations can be sized

accordingly.

‘‘Also, the bulk of the

building is apartments so we

wanted an ecological point of

difference,’’ he said.

‘‘The timber itself is crosslaminated

timber panels that

are 150 millimetres thick.

These are made up of five

layers of spruce/pine and the

panels were sourced from a

supplier in Austria.

‘‘We did this because the

delivery times were much

better than the ones indicated

by alocal supplier.’’

The new building is part of

athree­phase Christchurch

Property Projects

development and includes

the new building next­door

for Burger King, which

opened in August, and a700

square metre Cone St

development which includes

retail and parking space.

‘‘Completion of the High

Street building is expected

late in the first quarter of

next year, with the Cone

Street building (and the

whole project) completed by

the middle of next year.

‘‘We could have gone

higher (with the three­level

building) but chose not to.

You have to make sure there

is ademand for what you are

building,’’ he said.

‘‘We have had lots of

inquiries.’’

Council has created

new facilities in the

former residential

red zone, including

aBMX track.

PHOTO:SUPPLIED

Overseasawardfor

revamp of redzone

The WaimakaririDistrictCouncil’s red

zonerecovery hasreceived international

recognition.

The council’s draft Waimakariri

Residential Red Zone Recovery Plan was

recently named overall winner in the 2019

Commonwealth AssociationofPlanners

(CAP) Awards for Outstanding Planning

Achievementinthe Commonwealth.

It is the second consecutive year New

Zealand planners have won at the awards,

which acknowledge the crucial role the

industry holds in developing sustainable

and resilient communities.

The awards attracted entries from

throughout theCommonwealth, including

Ghana, Canada,Australia, Sierra Leone,

British Virgin Islands, Dominica, St Lucia,

Malaysia,Sri Lanka and Tanzania.

Three of the final 10 shortlistedprojects

werebyNew Zealand planners.

Waimakariri’s winning project focused

on regeneratingthe district’sworstaffected

areas in Kaiapoiand The Pines

and Kairaki Beach communities following

the 2010 and 2011 Canterbury

earthquakes. The quakes resulted in

nearly 100 hectares of residential land

being red­zoned andmore than 1000

homes demolished.

Extensivecommunity consultationwas

coretothe plan’s development, resulting

in strong public interest and participation.

People of all generations, cultures and

lifestylesvoiced their support, whilealso

putting forwardnew ideasand alternative

land­use options.

Judges were impressed by the urgency

of the response, and praised the council

for its ‘‘timely recoveryand resilience plan

thatresponds to complex landuse and

technical requirements, the needs of

❛Our planners continue to set

the bar —not just nationally,

butalso on the world stage.❜

—NZPlanning Institute CEO David Curtis

multiple stakeholders,and an exhausted

and polarisedpublic in arelativelyshort

time frame’’.

They also noted it couldbeused as an

example for other Commonwealth

countries dealing with disasterrecovery.

New ZealandPlanning Institute chief

executive David Curtis saysthe accolade

confirms New Zealandplanners are

among the best in the world.

‘‘Our plannerscontinue to set the bar —

not justnationally,but also on the world

stage,’’ David says.

‘‘The planning profession in New

Zealand is held up as bestpracticeand we

are proud to see it continue to receive

internationalrecognition.’’

Waimakariri District Councilstrategy

and engagement manager Simon

Markham says the award reflects not only

the technical planning work that took

place following the earthquakes.

It also acknowledges the efforts made by

planners to genuinely collaboratewith the

community in determiningthe future

pattern of land uses in an area devastated

by disaster.

‘‘We are thrilled to be recognisedbyCAP

and that theyhave acknowledged both the

planning that took place, but importantly

the ongoing regeneration of Waimakariri’s

worst­affected communities led by the

council over recent years.’’

Lisa makes her mark across Tasman

By RACHEL MACDONALD

NorthCanterbury’s Lisa Verheul

can ride. In the saddle, she is

light­handed, fast and accurate,

and her new competition results

from Australia are testamentto

that.

She was lucky enoughtospend

six weeks earlierthis year with

southern NewSouth Wales

Western ridinglegendPhil Webb

and his wife, Dawn.

She has now justgot home

from another stintwith the

couple, where she competed in

her firsttwo AustralianNational

Rein Cow HorseAssociation

showsonafour­year­oldmare

belonging to Phil and Dawn,

called Miss Pink.The paircame

away with two first places and a

second, and ahunger for more.

‘‘These are practical farm

skills basedonthe traditional

working partnership between

horseand rider,’’ explains Lisa,

who runsLisa Vee Performance

Horses. ‘‘However, the art of cowhorseriding

diedout in New

Zealand and Australia in the late

‘70s and early ‘80s. It'snow

making something of acomeback,

both in the US —whereit

originated—and in Australia.’’

Phil explains further.

‘‘When you're bringingina

herd of 9000cattle on amassive

station in the Northern

Territories, and then you haveto

cut certain animalsout for the

vet, for example,you'vereally got

to know what you're doing.You

need ahorse and riderwho can

get the job done, and that'swhere

the reincow horsecompetition

classes come from.’’

In Lisa's first show, in centralwest

New SouthWales’ Guerie,

she came up against38other

competitors. Neither she nor the

younghorse had competed in

rein cow horse classes before.

‘‘First,you ride adry pattern,

whichiskind of the Western

version of dressage. It's aset

series of manoeuvres designed to

show the horse's versatility and

speed,'' she says.

‘‘Then, theyintroduceacow

and you havetouse the horse to

control it, taking it down the

fencelineand turning it right and

left.It's very fast ...and things

can alsogowrong for the rider

very fast.''

‘‘Sheworked so hardfor those

results,''Phil says.

‘‘Every day,we'd go through all

the possiblescenariosand how

you would ridetomeet them. It

takessuper­good controland an

absolute understanding of your

horse, in whatcan be avery

dangerous discipline. These

horses needtohave so much —

they need the temperament,the

ability and the cowsense.

‘‘Andthe rider needs to be able

to watch and predict animal

response patterns accurately

enough to keepthemselves, and

the animals, safe.’’

The dream is nowtobring cow

horsereining to the SouthIsland,

and to that end Phil and Dawn

spentlast weekend holding a

sold­out clinic at her base in

Okuku.

‘‘I'dlove to get the sport offthe

ground in Canterbury,but you

need the clinicianstoeducate

the riders,and that's what this

weekendwas allabout,’’Lisa

says.

‘‘Theriding spots sold out fast,

and we also had lots of people

watching from the railings. If the

interest continues to build like

this,itwould be great to bring

trainers over from the US to hold

clinics too.’’

And what did Philand Dawn

think?

‘‘This has beenour first timein

the South Island andit's been an

unbelievableexperience. We'll

be back.’’

As for Lisa, she is going to focus

on her ownhorsesand breeding

business through the summer,

and despite the nerves and

performanceanxiety on the day,

is looking to compete overthe

ditch again nextyear.And

maybe, sometime in the future,

she willbereadytotake on the

competition in the US.

In control ... Lisa Verheul

competes in Australia. She hopes

to promote the art of cow­horse

riding in New Zealand. PHOTO: SUPPLIED

Amberley’s heartwill sparkle on Thursday,December 5, as the town heralds inthe

festive season.

The town centre will be decked with bells and holly,and Chamberlain Park will glow with lights as the

town’s promotional group, AmberleyNZ, hosts its inaugural Christmas Festival to spread joy and festive cheer.

The festival starts at 4pm and runs till 8pm, with face painting and photo booths at the south end of town, and

Kell’s Kitchen helping set the scene for afun-filled night.

Claire Inkson, from AmberleyNZ, says that alongside the offerings from an eclectic mix of local business, there will

be up to 90 stalls providing food, crafts, arts and arange of gifts.

“Wehave an array of super cool and interesting thingshappening all around Amberley.

“Our town is going to sparkle. Markham street will host avariety of food trucks beside the Brew Moon, and shops will be open late,”

Claire says.

Arthur Burkes Hammer Hardware will have stalls in its car park area to provide awesome Christmas shopping, and Kiwiana-style

Santa photos in aKombi Vanwill be happening beside the Brew Moon Brewing Company.

The Brew Moon will have live music from 5pm to 9pm with the Epic Duo. There will be stalls and live music beside Envisage in

Brackenfields, and craftstalls opposite Me Now YouClothing, as well as awellbeing section of stall holders beside Sally Mac’s.

Buskers will entertain throughout the town. There will be carols and Christmas Cookie workshops.

The Hurunui Librarywill be open late with aWishing Tree, where visitors can drop off wrapped presents for those in need, as well as

enjoy Christmas storyreadings for children.

Claire says the synergy between the community and businesses is an important part ofthe festival. Each needs one another, and

AmberleyNZ, which was formed two years ago, has always aimed to bring them together at aChristmas festival to supporteach other

and have agreat night out.

“Wewanted to do something on alarge scale that would benefit businesses and the community and hopefully spread abit of festive

joy,” she says.

“Welove our town, and our community,and this is afabulous way to show how great things can happen when we work together and

collaborate. Small towns are experts at that.

“The whole of Amberley will be bustling. All the shops will be open until late, and our restaurants, including

our iconic Nor’Wester,will be open for dinner.It’s agreat opportunity to supportour small businesses, and

Shop Local.”

ALight up the Town competition, sponsored by Pams Pantry and Hurunui Engineering, promises to take

the festive cheer out into the community.There is a$100 hamper on offer for the best-lit-up residence, and

one for the best business entry.

This will be judged by Hurunui Mayor Marie Black later in December..

Claire says AmberleyNZ is grateful to the Amberley and Districts Lions Club for providing funding to help

light up Chamberlain Park.

Watch this space for AmberleyNZ’s next big event, aMarkham Street Festival, set for February1,2020.

KAIAPOI SANTA PARADE AND CHRISTMAS CARNIVAL

26 North Canterbury News, November 28, 2019

Plenty of special guests for annual parade

By DAVID HILL

Santa Claus is not the only

special guest in Kaiapoi next

month.

Ronald McDonald is set to

make his first appearance at

the Kaiapoi Carnival and Santa

Parade on Saturday, December

7.

He will join old favourites

including Darth Vader and the

Disney princesses, ‘‘who will be

alot more interactive at both

the carnival and the market,

and will be available to take

photos’’, Kaiapoi Promotions

Association project manager

Martyn Cook says.

He says the event will be at

the same venue, with the same

format as last year.

‘‘This is my second year

running the event and there’s

no question last year was a

success, but there’s always

room for improvement.’’

The day’s activities will get

under way at 9am with the

community street market,

which is sponsored by the

association, filling up fast.

Community groups are

advised to get in quickly if they

want to have astall.

The street will feature local

community groups and

businesses, giving local

families and visitors the

opportunity to see what they’re

about. It will run until 12.30pm.

The race will then be on the

clear the main street before the

Santa parade, which starts at

1.30pm.

The Lion Foundation

Kaiapoi Carnival will then

return for asecond year as a

one­day event, based on former

red­zoned land between Hilton

Street, opposite the Kaiapoi

Countdown Supermarket, and

Raven Quay.

The carnival starts at 10am,

with live performances on the

community stage from popular

local band Assembly

Required.

‘‘There will be carnival stalls

we haven’t seen in the district

before.

‘‘Tracy (Inwood) does an

amazing job of tracking down

these stallholders,’’ Mr Cook

says.

‘‘The carnival is packed,

which is ameasure of the

popularity of the event.’’

There will also be afree

family fun zone, sponsored by

Misco Joinery, with activities

for all ages, and a‘‘chill zone’’

(outdoor living room).

The ‘‘Show and Shine’’ car

show, sponsored by Kaiapoi

Alignment &Tyres, will allow

people to show off their

vehicles. To enter, donate agift

under the Christmas tree at the

carnival.

The carnival runs until

4.30pm. It is sure to be abig

family day out as families gear

up for the festive season.

Mr Cook says he has been

pleased with the response from

the community in recent weeks

as the event approaches.

But finding sponsorship and

fundraising has been

‘‘exceptionally hard’’ this year,

after the event made asmall

year’s Kaiapoi Santa parade.

surplus in 2018.

He says the success of the

event has assisted the

association’s conversations

with the Waimakariri District

Council for remedial work to

the carnival site to be included

in next year’s annual plan.

In heavy rain, the site is

prone to flooding.

‘‘We are hopeful that some

improvement will be made to

the land, so going forward the

site will be much more usable

in future for general use.’’

For the first three years it was managed

by Kaiapoi Community Support,with

ReflectionsCommunity Trust taking over

in 2014.

The lunch,held on Christmas Day at the

KaiapoiRugby Club roomsinSmith

Street, is an opportunity to provide for

people who do not have anyone to share

Christmas with, or anywhere to spend

Christmas,co­ordinator Tiana Wills says.

‘‘Ourtarget group are socially isolated

people, elderly people who are on their

own, families who struggle with their own

family gatherings, and evenmigrant

workers who now reside in ourcommunity

to specifically assist with the rebuild, who

may be on their own at Christmas.’’

The venue and the services of the chef,

Nelson Chingfrom Who’s theCaterer, are

providedatno cost.

Tiana says.

The event allows those attending to have

agood time, to share, make new friends, or

‘‘As aresult, no­one attending the lunch

will feellonely on this special day,’’ she

says.

‘‘Our team of volunteers will provide

food andfriendship in acheerful and

convivialatmosphere.’’

Tiana says the media build­up to

Christmas Day often portraysfamilies and

friends enjoying food and companionship,

but may not show thosewho ‘‘feel more

‘‘There is still astigma associated with

‘‘On Christmas Day, when other options

are limited, the Waimakariri Community

By SHELLY TOPP

Thirty North Canterbury schools and

charitable organisations have been

namedasrecipients of the 2019

MainPowerCommunity Fund.

The North Canterburyelectricity

distributor has been runningthe

contestable fund since 2015.

Chiefexecutive Andy Lester saysheis

pleased with how the fundhas evolved.

This year, funding rose $10,000to

$30,000 duetothe popularity of the fund.

Communitygroups willreceive$20,000,

with the remaining $10,000 going to

school projects.

The money will be put towards awide

rangeofcommunity activities. ``Whether

the funding is goingtowards giving kids

the chance to learnaboutthe

environment, or supporting the region’s

most vulnerable, the key thing is thatall

of the recipients are doing greatthings for

NorthCanterbury.’’

9, also included aVIP tour of the

Fanimals studio where they met the

show’s presenters, Stacey Tremain and

Jess Quilter.

Hundreds of entries were received for

the nationwidecompetition, which

invited school­age children to sketch

theirfavourite species and listways in

whichthe publiccan protect them.

Jess drewafantail (piwakawaka) and

Josh drewaharrier hawk (kahu).

Theirentries stood out to the Fanimals

team,astheir sketches were detailedand

intricate.

‘‘It was cleartosee that alot of time

had gone into creating outlines of the

birdsand then colouring them in with

lots of different shadesand pencil

strokes,’’Jess Quiltersaid.‘‘Their ideas

for protectingour native species were

really well thoughtout too.’’

Jess mentioned using cat collars and

cat bells as akey way of keeping our

native birds safe fromone of their key

predators, and Josh wrote about the need

to keep dogs on leads and to only take

them to dog­approved areas.

St John area committees merge

By SHELLEY TOPP

Three St John area committees in

North Canterburyhave mergedto

form the new Waimakariri Area

Committee.

The new committeerolls

together the Kaiapoi and Cust/

Oxfordarea committees, together

with the Rangiora committee,

which encompassesAmberley.

The Amberley Area Committee

mergedwith Rangiora over 20

years agoand became apart of

the wider Rangiora St John

community.

‘‘The (merger)process has been

drivenbythe areacommittee

members,’’ St JohnWaimakariri

Area executive officer Kimberley

Barr says.

It is still in the transitional

stage,but is abig steptowards

new ways of working. Kimberley

says area committees are being

encouraged nationally to explore

waystostreamline services,

improve efficiency and make

better use of funding.

Although the Rangiora,

Amberley, Kaiapoi and Cust/

Oxford Area Committees have

always workedcollaboratively,it

is hopedthe new committeewill

deliver greater fluidity working as

one big area.

‘‘Wewill be in abetter position

to support the widercommunity

whenworkingtogether as one

team,’’Kimberley says.

Akey part of the new

committee’srole is to ensure that

eacharea retainsservices,

utilities and donations.

‘‘Nothing essentially will

change for those keyareas.

‘‘Weare still here to support the

health and wellbeing of the

community.The community is

justbigger,’’ Kimberley explains.

Hawardenproperty of Dugald, Mandy

and AndrewRutherford next

Wednesday from 1.30pm,focusedon

spring lambs, facilitator Dr Tom Fraser

said.

‘‘With the current and projected lamb

prices lookingextremelypromising, any

managementpractices that can be

incorporated into the farm system to

increase the slaughter weight of lambs

available for sale adds significantly to

the farm profit.

‘‘With weaningapproaching and

pasture qualitydeclining,anything that

can be done to improvestockhealth

over this period is extremely

important.’’

NorthCanterbury VeterinaryClinics

vet Ben Allott will be on handtodiscus

options for minimising the effects of

internalparasiteresistance, Dr Fraser

says.

‘‘Thedevelopment of drench

resistance continues at an alarming

pace,with tripleresistant parasitesin

the North Island being diagnosedwith

alarmingfrequency. South Island

properties are unfortunately also

following this trend.

‘‘It is clear thatmany farms continue

to take massive risks with poor

quarantine programmesand many

farmers don’tknow what drenches are

effective or ineffective on their

properties.’’

Dr Frasersays Ben will presentthe

results of anumber of faecalegg count

reduction tests fromlast year in North

Canterbury.

He says localfarmers will speak about

the challenges of drench resistance, the

attemptsatslowing the development of

further issues, and the consequences of

interventions on theirbusiness and

productivity.

‘‘These farmer forums have been a

highlight of pastfield days and this will

be agreat opportunity to discuss with

otherfarmers the management systems

they have in place to achieve high

production.

‘‘They will discusstheirexperiences

relating to drenchtesting,providing

refugia andreducing reliance on longacting

treatments.’’

Therewill also be afarm tour,with an

opportunity to discuss some pasture

options to mitigate against the effects of

internal parasites and drench

resistance.

Dr Fraserwill presentinformation

from previous trial workonweaned

Call for overhaul of key legislation

The current messy legal framework around the management of our

resources is amassive burden on people and the economy. Reform is

essential, writes Rural Advocacy Network chairman Jamie McFadden.

Whengovernment policy goeswrongitcan

deliver disastrousconsequences.

Suchisthe case with the government’s

climate­change policies.

North Canterbury is astronghold of

agroforestry and there are many benefits

to having exoticforestry integrated on

farms.

However,like the rural lobby group 50

Shades of Green, we have major concerns

about the government’s climate­change

policies.

If the current policydirection continues,

we will see changes to ourlandscapes and

rural communities of ascalenot seen

since the landclearance subsidy days

before 1980.

The Hurunui District Landcare Group invites farmers and

their families to aseries of community workshops

Come along and share your ideas for our community’s future.

Why come along?

To talk about apotential community project that will benefit our environment, our community and our farm

businesses.

Farmers in other catchments, up and down the country are also talking about how this opportunity can benefit

their environment, communities and farm businesses.

Cheviot:

Scargill:

The One Billion Treesinitiative and

Emissions TradingScheme (ETS) are

heavily weighted in favour of pines over

other trees,particularly natives.

These policies fail to takeinto account

the morechallenging and costly

establishment regimerequiredfor native

plantingsversus pines.

Weeds and pests poseasignificant

threattonative vegetationand evennative

reversion is not easy, as excludingstock

often leadstoanexplosion of weeds such

as broom, gorse and blackberry.

Without significantfunding and

resources, large­scale nativeplanting on

hill country is impractical.

Many farmers in North Canterbury

plant poplar poles that deliver arange of

benefits, including erosion control,stock

shade and carbon sequestration.However,

the illogicalOne Billion Trees criteria

knock poplarsout as aviable funded

optionand pines win again.

Livestock farmers arefacing significant

increasesincompliance costsand many

are lookingatother options, including

exiting farmingaltogether. Add in the

revenue options of carbon farmingand the

much easier compliance and reporting

regime, andexotic forestry is increasingly

attractive.

Like the North Island hill country,

farmers in Canterbury are being

approached by forestryinterests looking

for farms to buy.

One only has to look at another
