Flight of fancy, time for take­off

Take atrip anywhere and neverleave Ashburton airport

By John Keast

Ready for take­off, flight path

logged.

The plane is at Dunedin, bound

for Christchurch.

It gathers speed up the runway,

lifts off.

Except it doesn’t.

The ‘‘plane’’ doesn’t leave

Ashburton airport.

Ashburton airport is home to the

Ashburton Aviation Museum, and

the museum, thanks to computer

whizz Owen Moore and software

engineer, and others, has aflight

simulator.

Although not atraining tool, it

provides arealistic flight experience ­

and would­be pilots can fly anywhere

in the world, and the software built in

to the simulator gives areal­flight

experience.

At the moment, the ‘‘flight’’

scenery is limited to New Zealand,

but more may be added to give arealworld

view of the flight.

On aflight, say, from Dunedin to

Christchurch, the pilot and co­pilot

see the world from above just as a

pilot would ­including the street

lights of Ashburton and even the

lights at the Synlait factory near

Dunsandel.

The operator can also adjust the

flying experience, say, to show snow

in winter.

The simulator uses the controls of

Mr Moore said the simulator was

built to astage in agarage in

Christchurch, but completed in

Ashburton.

He said he and Mr Hill each

probably put in 200­odd hours, and

others at the museum also helped.

Adonation is expected from

‘‘We are pretty pleased with it.’’

When the unit came from

Christchurch it was on awooden

base.

Museum volunteers decided it

needed to look alittle better and

fitted it inside agiant water tank.

It has been cut into sections so, if

needed, volunteers can get access to

the maze of wires behind the fascia.

‘‘We have got to the point now

where people can fly it,’’ Mr Moore

said.

Interested flyers should go the

museum between 9am and 3pm on

Wednesdays and Saturdays; an

appointment would be needed at any

other time.

Mr Moore said adonation would

be expected.

Getting involved by accident

Volunteer of the month -John Driscoll

You could say it was by

accident John Driscoll,

from Birthright Canterbury,

got into volunteering.

An accident stopped

John from farming and

saw him join Ashburton

Rotary which lead to his

involvement with thennamed

Birthright Ashburton.

Ashburton Rotary

started Birthright in Ashburton

in 1946, to help

war families with only

one parent.

John, who is the Volunteering

Mid & South

Canterbury and the Hotel

Ashburton Volunteer of

the Month, went on to

become the rotary representative

at Birthright.

He was appointed by

then­president Dr Phil

Godfrey.

Sixteen years later,

John is still involved, he

became branch president

in 2014, and thoroughly

enjoying every minute of

his volunteering.

He says volunteering is

about helping others and

gives asense of achievement,

it helps him be

positive and he likes giving

his time.

His greatest achievement

is securing the

future of Birthright and

helping it gain a new

identity so it becomes an

even better organisation.

After two years as the

Rotary representative

John joined the Birthright

committee. With

funding an ongoing issue,

John discussed, at a

national meeting, about

Ashburton and Christchurch

branches joining

John Driscoll

together.

It was especiallybeneficial

for Ashburton to have

help with funding. Once

the amalgamation took

place they formed new

identity, Birthright Canterbury.

In his time, John

has served as atrustee of

the Birthright Canterbury

Charitable Trust.

The amalgamation has

placed Birthright Canterbury

in abetter place with

a committed group of

localssupporting the work

in Ashburton. It includes

a social worker, family

visitors (always inneed of

more), and those, like

John, who work away in

the background doing

whatever come up

whether its practical

assistance like procuring

firewood, assisting atthe

holiday programmes or

supporting young people

to attend the Birthright

camps.

John is passionate

about his volunteering

with Birthright including

some of the activities

they’ve done such as fishing

at Clearwater Resort,

boating at Lake Hoodand

delivering goods to families.

Others within the

organisation say if they

need something done they

ask John, whose practical

skills, strategic thinking

and sense of humour is

greatly valued by them.

Another activity is helping

to collect gifts from

the Christmas Tree set up

at Heartland Bank. John

said the bank, and its

predecessor, had generously

hosted the Christmas

tree allowing members

of the community to

leave so many wonderful

gifts for Birthright families.

He says the goodwill to

families is unreal.

“The Christmas Spirit

is alive in the community

who are so generous”.

John’s volunteering

gives him so much enjoyment

helping other

people and hoping to

make things better for

people.

Organisations and

groups are encouraged to

campaign, the bikers

declared they willnot

Some 13 motorbikes

the White Ribbon

At St Joseph’s School,

motorcyclistsroared

Youngerpupils and

older pupils splitinto two

groups and were

addressed by the visiting

bikers.

Speaking to the

leader Brian Mahonfrom

Nelson encouraged

students to be ‘‘nice to

people’’ and ‘‘to look after

your friends’’.

He urged them to have

respectfor others,totalk

to their matesand to have

fun in life.

Anotherbiker talking

to the older school group

spoke candidly about his

life and an abusive family

history.

He had grown up with

an angryand violent

father.

He in turn had not been

very nice to his own wife

in the early years,but he

had changed and had

made better choices and

had since treated her well.

‘‘I was later able to talk

to my father later in life

and forgave him.’’

The youngsters were

ME sufferer Nikki making progress

By Mick Jensen

ME (myalgic encephalomyelitis)

sufferer Nikki

Tyrrell has made ‘‘significant’’

improvement

relative to where she was

and is grateful to the

fundraising efforts of the

local and wider communities

that helped her

get to aclinic in Cyprus

for treatment.

Avariety concert and

auction were held locally

earlier this year and,

alongside a Givealittle

campaign, helped raise

$40,000 towards the cost

of the trip. The rest was

funded by her family.

Ms Tyrrell spent seven

months at the clinic,

instead of the anticipated

three months, because of

the severity of her condition.

‘‘Going to Cyprus was

a last resort for me

because Ihad tried everything

and Iwas not getting

better.’’

She has been seriously

ill for over 20 years and

spends alot of her time in

bed suffering with ME

and Lyme disease.

She can’t tolerate most

medications, and everyday

things like perfume

can trigger seizures, on

top of usual pain and

insomnia.

The Cyprus clinic

offered a wraparound

care package and ozone

therapy.

The primary treatment

involved taking blood, filtering

it, and putting it

through ozone under

hyperbaric pressure and

putting it back in the

body again.

That was done three

times a week and every

other day Ms Tyrrell

received ozone and other

treatments.

‘‘From the point where

Icame from, to where I

am now, the treatment

has made a ‘significant’

impact on my health.

‘‘Improvements came

incrementally and

enabled me to do a bit

more each day.

‘‘I was able to start

walking without awheelchair,

then the hail struck with

Mr Brown said there

New Ashburton sleigh to make its presence felt

Ashburton’s Santa Claus

has anew sleigh and it’s

the ‘‘Rolls Royce of

sleighs’’.

It’s been made by Ashburton’s

Sandy Johns,

sponsored by Ray White

Real Estate, and will

make its inaugural

appearance in the annual

Hyundai Mid Canterbury

Santa Parade in downtown

Ashburton on Saturday.

Santa, and his team of

elves and fairies, will be

joined by a variety of

festive, and famous, characters

as well as scores of

people from within Mid

Canterbury.

Primary school children,

preschoolers,

church groups, emergency

service personnel

and cultural groups are

among those taking part

alongside the Ashburton

Silver Band who will be

belting out festive tunes

along the parade route.

Paradeorganiser Carol

Johns said the new sleigh

was the ‘‘Rolls Royce of

sleighs’’ for aparade that

‘‘just keeps getting bigger

and bigger’’.

Many of last year’s

floats are returning but

there are a number of

new floats including a

team from Redmonds

Carpet Court, volunteers

from the Ashburton Fire

Museum and businesses

from Ashburton Arcade.

Also to take part will

be a mix of popular

children’s characters

such as Bananas in Pyjamas,

Transformers,

Smurfs, Shrek and Big

Bird as wellasChristmas

crackers, parcels and

trees.

Mrs Johns said this

year clowns would hand

out hundreds ofbags of

lollies and mini bags of

chips to children along

the route.

Many volunteers had

already offered to dress

in some of the scores of

costumes available for

use during the day, but

there was always room

for more.

If anyone else wanted

to dress­up in one of

around 50 costumes

available, Mrs Johns said

they were more than welcome

to take part and

could turn up at Mona

Squareat11.30am on the

day.

The parade starts at

Mona Square and goes

via Kermode Street to

East Street before heading

toward the town clock

in Baring Square East.

It does aloop of the

square before heading

back down East Street

and back to Mona

Square.

It officially starts at

12.30pm but clowns will

be handing out the goodies

to people along the

parade route from

12.15pm, so get along

nice and early.

They will have

resources, and messages

from survivors, to help

inspire people to end violence

against women and

girls living in the community,

and beyond.

Wordsmith Isabel

wins poetry prize

Eleven year old Isabel

Wang, of Ashburton

Borough School, has won

a national poetry competition,

supporting animal

welfare and the work

of the SPCA.

Isabel, already abudding

singer/songwriter,

can now add SPCA

national poetry winner to

her growing list of art

accomplishments. She

also plays piano/keyboard

and is a good

artist.

Her poem was one of

many created by pupils in

the Year 6class but the

only one to be written in

shape form and written to

create the letters SPCA.

Isabel wrote the poem

and worked it into its

shape at the same time.

Year 6 teacher Fiona

Shaw, who has rescue dog

Floyd with her in the

classroom, encouraged

the pupils to enter the

SPCA writing competition.

But creating a shape

poem was done at Isobel’s

own accord.

She credited Isabel as a

self­motivated pupil who

put the time and effort

into her work, which paid

dividends.

Isabel’s poem has gone

on to win first place in the

national junior section

and saw the judges praise

her creativity and ability

to highlight the importance

of being a responsible

animal guardian.

While the unknown

prize was yet to arrive, for

Isabel it’s not about the

rewards, it’s the enjoyment

she gets from creating

the pieces, including

those she has added to

music.

Not only will Isabel

compete in the school’s

annual Todd Cup competition

tonight (Nov 28),

with the song ‘Journey to

the Past, from the movie

Anastasia, but she will

perform an original song,

which she wrote and composed,

called S.I.N.G

Isabel said the popish

song is about music,

instruments and performing.

And how anyone

could perform music and

use it to express themselves.

It was Isabel’s passion

project and created during

the class Term 3unit

‘how we express ourselves’.

Christian school set

to become secondary

By Mick Jensen

Ashburton Christian

School is set to become a

fully combined primary

and secondary school and

expects notification in the

next few weeks on when it

can begin extending its

education programme to

students in Years 11­13.

The school has a

capped and capacity roll

of 120 and offers a

Christian­based

education from Year 1

through to Year 10.

Principal Tim Kuipers

said the school would

know soon when it could

move forward with its

plans, and the changes

would start no later than

2023.

He said if 2023 was

given the green light, it

would mean current Year

7pupils would be able to

stay on at the school for

Year 11 onwards.

It was also likely that

the Year 11 roll out

would include Year 12 at

the same time, while

Year 13 would start the

following year.

Mr Kuipers said it was

anticipated that the

school roll would be

capped at 250 pupils in

2020 and at 345 when the

extra years were

introduced.

He said if things

happened earlier than

2023, more current

students could continue

at the school, whereas a

delay until 2023 would

SAMANTHA

ROSE

FLOWERS

give more time for

planning.

Ashburton Christian

School was opened in

2009 with just 27

students.

There has been steady

growth over the years,

before numbers levelled

out to 90 for three years

and then jumped again to

the current capped levels.

Mr Kuipers said it was

an exciting time ahead for

the school and he was

motivated by the

philosophy of education

the school offered.

The school’s

‘‘personalised learning’’

programme allowed for

the ‘‘rich delivery’’ of the

national curriculum.

‘‘I believe our tailored

learning approach is a

real game changer in the

education field.’’

Acompulsory subject,

with optional assessment,

going forward for pupils

from Year 7and above is

called World Studies and

will see students and staff

explore and debate a

range of topics suggested

by both sides.

Atopic already

debated by older students

is transgenderism. Other

suggested topics include

leadership, the place of

pain, music, euthanasia,

race, socialism and

slavery.

Exploration of those

type of topics would

inevitably branch out into

NCEA subjects, where

they could be explored

further and in context,

said Mr Kuipers.

Teachers would be

upskilled to deliver the

World Studies

component of the

programme, he said.

Ashburton Christian

School has nine teachers

and future school

expansion will need more

staff to fill roles such as

head of secondary school,

head of middle school

and specialist roles.

The school has

purchased 1.3ha of

adjacent land, and

buildings for future Year

13 pupils will be located

there from next year. The

extra land will also mean

the expansion and

reconfiguration of sports

areas at the school.

Health scrap, then business

Ashburton business woman Robyn

Wall has spent the past few years

battling personal health issues.

They have included breast cancer,

resulting in adouble mastectomy,

breast reconstruction and

lung surgery.

Rather than being stopped in her

tracks, Robyn, and husband Dave,

have changed their lifestyles

becoming rural dwellers and business

owners.

They bought alifestyle block and

set up their business Soul Pods,

which uses heated Epsom salt bath

pods.

The pods, specifically made for

purpose, are designed to help other

people ­among other things ­relax.

The lifestyle change started when

Robyn found a lump in her left

breast.

It was cancer and lead to her

having her breast removed in 2014.

Six months of chemotherapy

followed.

It was then the couple, with

children, Riley, now 12 and Isobel,

11, decided to set up ‘the good life’

and move from suburban Ashburton

to the rural outskirts for a

quieter lifestyle.

On their lifestyle block just east

of town, they have two highland

cattle, aspeckled park cow, kune

kune pigs, sheep and chickens, not

to mention the domestic cats and

dogs.

“It’s alot of work! It’s awesome,

Ilove it,” she says.

Robyn’s cancer turned out to be

the quite aggressive, triple zero

negative breast cancer ­ so she

elected to have her second breast

removed in 2015.

The following year she had her

fallopian tubes and ovaries also

removed as it had metastasized

(moved to another area).

Then in September, just two

weeks before opening the business

Robyn Wall beside one of two

floating pods brought to

Ashburton for the health

benefits and enjoyment of

others

Robyn was again at the doctor, this

time with alump in her throat.

It turned out to be a growth

larger than agolf ball which was

pressing on her aorta (vein).

It too had to be removed as it

would only continue to grow and

prove fatal by cutting off blood

flow.

Then six weeks ago she had lung

surgery to remove alump from her

lung; thankfully it was benign.

When Robyn and Dave looked at

setting up the business, Robyn, 42,

had been using the treatment in

Christchurch and, after her own

research into the business side,

thought it would be beneficial to

others in Mid Canterbury.

The pods have been in New

Zealand since the early 1980s.

“I just wanted to bring it to

Ashburton for the enjoyment of

others,” she says.

She made contact this year with

German manufacturer, Andre Ruschmeyer,

who only makes two or

three a year, and got the ‘egg

rolling’, so to speak.

The pods, like giant egg­shaped

baths complete with a lid, are

heated to between 34.7 to 35.2

degrees Celsius.

They use 400 litres of locally

sourced well­water and 300

kilograms of food­grade Epsom

salt.

The bathing, done naked to

increase water to skin contact, is

designed to help muscle relaxation,

relieve stress and reduce insomnia.

People can choose to have the lid

open or closed. There are lights

inside the pod.

It is acommon treatment used by

athletes and been aproven solution

for people who have had trouble

sleeping.

Robyn says one client, used to

waking regularly during the night,

was able to sleep for a straight

13­hours after bathing.

“But every experience is different,”

she says.

During the one hour long bathing

session people float in the

water.

Due to the nature of the salts,

they are unable to sink.

She says Epsom salt is naturally

laden with magnesium, which the

body needs, and during the one

hour bathing session it absorbs into

the body.

“It’s based on the Dead Sea

principle but in a controlled

environment.”

Robyn says there are people the

treatment will not suit and the first

session can be abit unnerving, but

by the second session (around a

month later) people know what to

expect.

Despite all her health concerns

Robyn remains upbeat ­she has a

supportive husband, family and

friends, including Kylie and Cheri

who help at Soul Pods.

New minister starts

in combined parish

It’s been almost six years since Presbyterian

churches in Hampstead and

Tinwald have had afull time minister,

but that has now changed.

The Reverend Johanna Warren was

welcomed into the role at a recent

induction service.

She will now take most of the

services at St Paul’s in Oxford Street,

Hampstead, on the first and third

Sunday of the month, and also at St

James in Tinwald, on the second and

fourth Sunday.

The two churches have now

combined to form the newly named

Hakatere Presbyterian Parish.

Previous services at the churches

were conducted by part time ministers

and through pulpit supply, and overseen

by an interim moderator.

Rev Warren hails from Northland

and replaces the last full time minister

Luisa Fruean, who departed for Milton

in early 2014.

Rev Warren was aprimary school

teacher for 11 years before deciding in

her mid 30s to train for the church.

After four years at the Knox Theological

Hall in Dunedin, her first

posting was in rural Canterbury.

‘‘My family were not regular church

goers when Iwas growing up, but I

went to Sunday School and those days

did have an impact on me.’’

She said it would take time for the

New Hakatere Presbyterian Parish

minister Reverend Johanna

Warren.

new combined parish to evolve and she

was relishing the new adventure.

Rev Warren was at a church in

Feilding before making the move south

and has also been a minister in

Marlborough.

She took her first service at St James

on Sunday.

Lamson

memory

Isee from your latest

column seven you found

an old Lamson tube and

got me thinking. Many

years ago in Christchurch

around Christmas I was

looking for short term

employment so visited the

government agency (now

Winz) and spotted ajob

around various parts of

the country with Lamps

and engineering. Having

some wiring experience

albeit with the P&T, I

applied. The manager

seemed abit bewildered

when Isaid Ihad some

wiring know how and it

was more to do with

pneumatics. After abit of

discussion we realised the

person at the employment

agency had misinterpreted

Lamson for

Lamps and! Anyway Igot

the job.

Message From The Principal

AdvanceAshburtonDonor’s Evening

This evening it is my honour tobeone of the

speakers at the Advance Ashburton Donors'

Evening. They have invited me to speak about

the future ofeducation and the requirements for

all education systems globally to undertake major

revision.

In anutshell, our current model requires students

to be given information and for them to then be

able to process thatinformation or recall facts in an exam-type situation.

Oureducation and business worlds have traditionally valued the retention

of information. However, this has all changed with the sum of the world’s

knowledge being freely available to all via the internet.

In the future, students will be valued because of their creative problemsolving,abilitytoworkand

communicate with others,and resiliency.

Ourcurrent school system does not really foster these desirable attributes

so, toequip our learners for the future, we need to change our system.

AdvanceAshburtonhas been very supportiveofAshburtonCollege and,

in particular, their support ofstudents in the Kōhanga and those striving

to get their learners’licences.

My presenceatthis evening is asmall acknowledgementofthe valuable

contribution thatthey have made to our College.

Performing Arts Concert

Tomorrow evening is the Performing Arts Concert, being held in the

Auditorium from 7:00pm, to raise money for André van Rooyen. This

charity event features many ofour famous Alumni and also some of our

very talentedcurrent students. The Master of Ceremonies forthe evening

is none other than our very own Ron Cresswell, who will also break into

song himself. The goal forthe evening is to raise enough money to fund

one month’s worth ofcancer treatment for André. We are fortunate to

have Debbie on staff and we are hopeful that the whole community can

supportthis venture.

NCEAExams

As our NCEA exams draw to aclose, on02December 2019, Ithink it is

important toacknowledge the good work of Nola Smitheram and her

team. Nola has retired from Ashburton College but agreed to stay onas

Exam Centre Manager to get us through this final, and very important,

NCEA exam period. Onbehalf of the College and the students, many

thanks.

Phoenix RisingTop of the South Tour

Next week we have our Phoenix Rising Chorus heading away forfive days,

principally to Nelson. This is abiennial eventand involves our Year 9and

10 choristers and their choral leaders undertaking workshops and giving

performances in the Nelson region. This is ahuge logistical undertaking

and certainly raises the performance levels of the students involved.

My thanks gotoAngie Cresswell, Carolyn Clough and Ron Cresswell for

organising and accompanying this trip. A special acknowledgement to

Leen Braam who has volunteered to be the bus driver on this year’s trip.

Many thanks.

ExcellentWin to CollegeCricketers over

Willows’Cricket Club XI

TheWillows Cricket Club near Loburn was founded in 1994, based on

the principle thatschoolfirst XI cricket teamsshould playagainst more

experienced cricketers,hence the Club’s Objectives being:

• Toencourage players in secondary

school first elevens to play with and

against experienced players, many

of whom are present orpast firstclass

cricketers.

• To offer quality cricket to cricket

lovers in the fine country

atmospheregrounds,wherefamilies

maycome to watch and picnic (pictured right).

On Sunday 10November the Mid CanterburyYouth XI (Ashburton College

and Mt Hutt College combined) team travelled north forthe annual fixture

against the 2019 Willows Cricket Club XI.

Wintothe CombinedTeam

Gaining awin over the more experienced players is always achallenge,

although it can be achieved, asthis year’s team proved with their seven

wicket win, 213/4 –101.

Being the side’s first win of the summer season, it was areal confidence

boost entering into this summer’s round of competition matches.

It was reported that the Youth XI team looked in control from the start,

fielding first. TheAshburtonbowlersstartedstrongly,with TomMiddleton

taking early wickets,and finishing with three to his name by the endofthe

innings. Two younger Year 10 bowlers, Liam Fuller and WilJemmett, also

performed well,auguring well forthe future.

Youth XI Team members on the day were all from Ashburton

College: Isaac Bazley, Devon Flannery, Liam Fuller, Angus Jemmett,

Lachie Jemmett, Wil Jemmett, Ben Middleton, Tom Middleton (Captain),

Millar Newlands,Jonty Small,LiamSullivan.

Mt Hutt College players: The two Saturday team members, Will Copland

and Angus Spittal,werenot playing in this fixture.

Team Coach is Dean Harrison, although Dean wasn’t presentatthisfixture.

TheWillows team wasdismissed forjust 72 runs,atarget the Youth XI team

reached with just three wickets down, in little more than thirteen overs,

with DevonFlannerytop run-scoring with 42 not out.

Presentation of AirPistolNobes Cupfrom

NZ McMillan Tournament

In June of this year four College students –SierraChambers,LauraCameron,

Mia Chambers and Charlotte Clifford –joined the Ashburton Pistol Club as

junior shooters.

Their purpose was tolearn how to shoot air pistols in order to compete in

the annual inter-school nation-wide competition forthe McMillan Cup. The

McMillan Cup competition operates specifically for junior shooters from

secondaryschools throughout New Zealand.

The four students had from June until late September to develop the

necessary skills to forward ascore to enter into both the Senior (Sierra

Chambers) and Intermediate competitions as individuals and, asinthe

case of the three Intermediate shooters,teams of three whose scores would

countfor both the Intermediate as well as the overall competition results.

OutstandingResults –Intermediate Team

Laura Cameron, Mia Chambers and Charlotte Clifford formed the

Intermediate team of three.

The combinedscores from the threeteammembers earnedthem -

• 1st placeinthe Intermediate competition, winning them the Nobes Cup.

• 6th placeinthe overall competition, from fifteen competing teams.

In the eleven years of competing in this competition Ashburton College

teams have onlywon the McMillan Trophyontwo other occasions,and both

via their senior team.

To make this win more epic, this is the first time an Intermediate team has

won this section, as novices, and the first time it has come to the South

Isalnd.

This is an exceptional effort bythe team members who all scored personal

best scores in the qualifying shoot.

All four students have performed extremely well, without exception, to

attain the level of skill they have achieved in such ashorttime.

Car for the mayor but not all happy

Ashburton mayor Neil

Cr Falloon asked that

Under a new council

He could not see the

Ashburton mayor Neil

but will lose some salary

and hewill have to meet

He will not be able to

the mayor may suggest a

vehicle to buy but it must

fit with council purchasing

rules.

The maximum price

for apetrol or diesel car

would be $55,000 and

$65,000 for a hybrid or

All nine Ashburton

councillors have been

paid the minimum since

taking office on October

18.

The pay pool does not

apply to the mayor, Neil

Brown, or members of

the Methven Community

Board.

Post­election, the

mayor’s salary increased

to $121,500, and his

annual remuneration

includes the valuation of

his vehicle.

Pay for community

board members is set

from July 1, 2019 and the

Remuneration Authority

will continue to set those

separately.

There are four

requirements for allocating

the governance pool:

The entire pool must

be allocated;

A base remuneration

will need to be decided

for councillors who have

no additional responsibilities;

For any role that

attracts additional pay,

council is required to

have aformal vote.

With apool of $377,856,

which must be used, the

pay has been allocated

thus ­

Deputy mayor ­$57,502

Five standing committee

chairs ­$43,000, made up

of abase salary of $35,118

plus $7882 additional

remuneration, equalling

$215,000.

Three councillors with

no additional responsibility

­base rate of $35,118,

equalling $105,354.

The council now sends

its proposals to the

Remuneration Authority

for approval, and the

council has noted that the

proposed allocation of the

pool is subject to adetermination

by the authority,

with additional payments

(above the base rate) backdated

once the determination

is issued.

Farmers can hit the surf

Mid Canterbury farmers

looking to give surfing a

go are invited to sign up

for Surfing for Farmers.

The initiative was

launched in Gisborne last

year to give farmers and

their staff an opportunity

to take some time offfarm

once a week to

learn anew skill and have

some fun in the waves.

Beef + LambNZ are

advertising a similar

opportunity for Canterbury

farmers with Surfing

for Farmers in Canterbury,

using the beaches

of Gore Bay and/or Sumner

Beach this summer.

However, an indication

on the number of people

who may be interested is

required.

New digital skills help Wanda return to work

Keen to re-enter the workforce after

raising afamily, Wanda Price realised

she needed to brush up on her computer

skills first.

“I had large gaps in my computer

knowledge, so Iknew that Ineeded to

fix this before Icould confidently apply

for jobs,” she says.

And fix it she is. Wanda is currently

studying the New Zealand Certificate in

Computing at Ara Connect in Timaru.

Run by Ara Institute of Canterbury,Ara

Connect offers free computing courses

for anyone wanting to gain skills and

confidence using digital technology.

“I chose Ara Connect because it had the

course Iwanted, it was free and it was

easy to get to. And the ‘pick and mix’

timetable really suits me with afamily.

The course is self-paced, so you’re only

focusing on what you’re doing.”

Wanda says she’s enjoying the course,

and likes her tutor’s teaching style.

“She has the ability to point you in the

right direction so you can then solve the

problem yourself. And approaching a

tutor at any time is never aproblem –

they’re only too happy to help.”

Wanda encourages others to become

adigital upskiller like her. “Definitely

give it ago! You’ll be amazed at all that

you learn and you’ll enjoy doing it.”

When she completes her certificate,

she’sgoing to weigh up whether to apply

for jobs or do further study.

Topp exhibition on soon

There will be dress ups, information panels, original

clothing, audio visual displays and activities lined up

when the new Topp Twins exhibition opens at

Ashburton Museum this Saturday.

Four areas of the museum, including the Murney

Family Room and research room, will be used for the

large visiting exhibition, which runs until February 9.

Museum director Tanya Robinson said the exhibition

had arrived in a13m container and would take

two weeks to fully install.

‘‘It is the largest exhibition we have ever hosted here

and we are all super excited to have it.

‘‘It’s going to be fun and quirky.’’

Ms Robinson said the Topp Twins had along and

colourful history in New Zealand, that included

political activism, but they remained true kiwi icons

and were well­loved.

Akid’s trail would direct ayounger crowd around

the exhibition and would help introduce another

generation to the comedy and singing duo, she said.

The public is also invited to dress up in five sets of

replica clothing that portray the well known Topp

Twins personas of Prue and Dilly, Ken and Ken, The

Gingham Sisters, Raelene and Brenda, and Camp

Mother and Camp Leader.

Original Topp Twins costumes will also be displayed

and activity stations set up.

Information panels will tell the pair’s story and a

performance career that spans 40 years.

Activism work ‘empowering’

By John Keast

Morgan Trowland reckons he

could not live with himself if he did

not do all he could to save the

planet.

As such, the former Ashburton

lad, a civil engineer, is working

part­time with Extinction Rebellion

in London.

He believes it is important work,

and something has to change ‘‘as

we are on track to make life forms

extinct’’.

Mr Trowland, who went to

Borough, Intermediate and Ashburton

College, did not think

when he lived in Mid Canterbury

that he would become an activist.

He said Extinction Rebellion,

which has asked councils in New

Zealand to declare climate emergencies,

has apowerful logistical

plan and the organisation was

teeming with capable people.

Morgan Trowland in Ashburton

Domain.

He had worked with doctors

and lawyers and scientists, and

climate change deniers should talk

to scientists if they wanted proof of

the damage being done.

Ashburton Museum director Tanya Robinson and

senior curator Maryann Cowan try on some of the

dress-up items during the installation of the Topp

Twins exhibition.

Mr Trowland said one of his

most exciting roles had been

organising asite and stage for a

rally last year.

He was also involved in his local

branch in afundraising role.

He said for many involved the

penny had dropped that something

had to be done.

Mr Trowland said he was still

working as an engineer part time ­

‘‘you have to earn aliving’’ ­but

working with Extinction Rebellion

was ‘‘really empowering’’.

In his engineering role, he has

designed bridges in Canada and

India.

He was glad water issues were

top of the agenda now in New

Zealand that some might question

whether Mid Canterbury needed

to be covered in grass.

Mr Trowland is in Ashburton

briefly to visit family.

with just over 1000 visitors

through the gates.

The garden, categorised

as being of international

significance, was

formerly owned and

developed by nurseryman

Alan Trott, and is

now owned by atrust.

Sunday’s visitors

included a mix of first

time and repeat visitors,

both local and from out

of town.

Anumber of families

brought picnics and

enjoyed time playing petanque,

or chess and jenga

with giant pieces.

There were also Devonshire

teas on offer, live

mellow jazz played and

local art displayed.

Trotts Garden administrator

and promoter

Nicola Walker said the

open day was an ‘‘overwhelming

success’’.

Young and old had

enjoyed the splendor of

the gardens and some

people had spent anumber

of hours in the

relaxed setting.

The event had been

ideal to showcase the

gardens for weddings,

functions and tours.

‘‘We really hope to

make Trotts selfsustainable

going forward

and to do that we need to

maintain and build on our

big pool of volunteers and

also create more income

streams through more

events.’’

Trotts will remain open

and free to visitors until

the end of the year, before

the policy is reassessed.

Looking back with

rose­tinted glasses

Local news at www.starnews.co.nz

Rangitata MP Andrew Falloon comments

It’s easy to look back at

history and one’s own

experiences with rose

tinted glasses. Of remembering

things the way

they used to be in a

slightly more positive

way than they actually

were.

I’m as guilty of it as

anyone. In my maiden

speech to Parliament I

talked of how parents

(mine included) wouldn’t

think twice of letting us

kids kick a ball around

Argyle Park all day until

the sun went down. Of

regularly leaving the

house unlocked while

you popped into town, or

the keys in the car when

grabbing aloaf of bread

from the shops.

It’s true the crime rate

has gone up, but it’s also

true we’ve always had

crime. Theft wasn’t rare

in the eighties. I recall

our garage being robbed

at least acouple of times,

and the same would have

been true for many

people in town and

around the district.

It was in response to

rising concerns with

crime that more than 25

years ago Ashburton

Town Watch began.

Today they’re acommon

sight on our streets, as

are Community Patrols

across the country, but it

wasn’t always this way.

Ashburton Town

Watch was one of the

first of its kind in New

Zealand, well before the

Community Patrols NZ

structure was formalised.

In Ashburton and

around the country they

utilise the skills and

knowledge of people in

our community to be the

eyes and ears that are

needed in places Police

can’t always be.

Of not intervening, but

being out and about, ever

watchful and ready to

radio Police to an incident

at a moment’s

notice. Of recording suspicious

behaviour, in

many cases giving Police

the information they need

that allows them to add to

the data they have, giving

afull picture that leads to

an arrest.

I had the pleasure of

being part of this wonderful

organisation for five

years when I worked in

Wellington. In ajob that

didn’t allow for the usual

evening meetings or pitching

in every Saturday or

Sunday, signing up for

community patrol was the

perfect way to volunteer

late at night or in the early

hours of the morning.

More recently I’ve been

out with our local Town

Watch here in Ashburton,

and their counterparts

down in Timaru. They do

an outstanding job, but

with more recruits they

could do even more. To

have a chat to see if it

would suit you, contact

them on 308 1635 or email

Authors share

work with kids

Published authors shared

their writing journeys with

pupils at three Mid Canterbury

schools last week.

Organised through

Storylines, a charitable

trust set up to promote

awareness of the importance

of reading and

books, the district tour

featured poet Paula

Green with Year 9/10

students at Ashburton

College, writer Philippa

Werry and illustrator

Vasanti Unka at Netherby

School and writer Eileen

Merriman at Ashburton

Christian School.

Author Philippa Werry,

who has well over 60

books to her name, took

senior students at Netherby

School through a

book of stories she

created during her primary

school years.

She said her love of

reading and writing had

started young.

She had earned points,

merits and stars for her

writing and each one had

spurred her on to write

more.

Some of her early

efforts had won prizes and

also appeared in her local

newspaper.

‘‘Writing has taught me

alot, including the need

for persistence, resilience

and also the excitement

that comes from being a

writer,’’ she said.

She said a writer was

the ‘‘best job in the

Eye on waste

world’’and seeing your

name on apublished book

was ‘‘the best thing ever’’.

Mrs Werry asked

students to consider both

the good and bad aspects

of being awriter.

The good points highlighted

included having

others read and enjoy

your writing, and the

opportunity to use your

imagination fully.

The bad points

included the time it took

to produce a book, and

poor feedback from

readers.

Storylines and the Story

Tour also visited schools,

early childhood centres

and libraries around other

areas of Canterbury last

week, with books donated

at each location.

Photo: Author Philippa

Werry went through the

stories she wrote and kept

from her childhood.

Astudy is under way to

see if Canterbury’s

discarded plastic and

paper could be sorted,

processed and recycled in

the South Island.

The study has been

launched by EcoCentral

(ECL), which manages

the recycling and processing

of refuse collections

in the region, to identify

innovative recycling solutions

that meet evolving

global standards.

Alarge percentage of

New Zealand’s recyclable

waste is sent offshore

to be sorted, processed

and recycled. Plastics and

paper are separated first

but must undergo amuch

more rigorous sorting and

cleaning process before

being recycled to Asian

markets.

The study will build on a

commitment ‘‘to doing the

right thing’’ with recyclable

waste and investigate

whether more can be done

in New Zealand, said ECL

chief executive Craig

Downie.

Celebrating volunteers

International Volunteer Dayiscelebrated

globally every year on December 5asa

day to celebrate thework volunteers do in

their communities.

The theme thisyear is ‘Volunteerfor an

InclusiveFuture ­Ewhai wahi ai te katoa,

kia tuao te tu’.

It truly is aday to champion the impact

volunteers have helping those communities,

nationally and globally, provide vital

services to function.

Volunteers are used in many organisations

includingwithinemergency services,

agedhealthcare, education, social services

and organisations.

The campaign theme focuses around

United Nation sustainable development

goal 10 and the pursuit of equality ­

including inclusion ­through volunteerism.

It’sanopportunityfor us alltopromote

volunteerism and to encourage decision

makers tosupport volunteer efforts and

recognise volunteer contributions tothe

achievement ofaninclusive future.

It’s also an opportunity to recognise

volunteer contributions to the achievement

of the sustainable development

goals at alocal, national andinternational

level.

The theme for International Volunteer

Day 2019 will specifically focus on:

­Volunteerism empowering people to

participate intheir own communities and

fostering inclusion

­ Volunteering promoting inclusion,

diversity, non­discrimination

2233194

­ Volunteerism as a mechanism to

reduce inequalities in society.

United Nations’ sustainable

development goals

Inequality continues tobeasignificant

concern despite progress to narrow

disparities of opportunity, income and

power.

In many parts of the world income

inequality continues to rise even as the

bottom 40 percent of the population in

many countries has experienced positive

growth rates.

Greater emphasis is needed on reducinginequalitiesinincome

as well as those

based onother factors.

Additional efforts are also needed to

increase zero­tariff access for exports

from least developedcountries and developing

countries, and assistance toleast

developed countries and small island

developing states.

In more than half ofthe 92 countries

with comparable data during the period

2011 to 2016, thebottom 40 percent of the

populationexperienced agrowthrate that

was higher than the overall national

average. However, those people received

less than 25 percent of the overall income

or consumption.

In many places, the increasing share of

income going to the top one percent of

earners is of significant concern.

~Asnapshot from the report ofthe

United Nations secretary­general, special

edition: progress towards sustainable

development goals.

Hail deluge hits community hard

By ToniWilliams

The hail which cut acrossMid Canterbury

last week left damage likely to

have lasting effects.

There has been widespread reports

of damaged tocrops, vehicles, homes

and buildings around the district.

Anything exposed to the brief, but

violent, deluge of hailstones ­some as

large as golf balls ­was at risk.

United Wheatgrowers Insurance

Scheme (UWIS) chairman Brian

Leadley said, two days after the event

30­odd claims had been received

ranging from South Canterbury

through to the western side ofChristchurch,

especially Kirwee and Darfield.

However there was a high likelihood

many more were affected asthe

wheat­specific insurance, alevy­order

deducted off sold wheat, does not

include other crops.

Mr Leadley said the scheme is run

by UWIS butunderwritten by Farmers

Mutual Insurance.

“There’sgoing to be alot of farmers

that might’vehad barley only or fodder

beet crops on dairy support farms,

there will be vegetables and vegetable

seed crops damaged, well over and

above all the wheat which isasmall

proportion.’’

Hail hitting downtown Ashburton last week caused wide-spread

damage.

He said itwill also include damage

to pea crops,brassicas,forage brassica

seed crops such asrape and kale as

well asspring planted and high value

vegetable seed crops.

“If they’ve got insurance they will

have their own private insurance

company…but alot of crop isuninsured.

“It tends to be avery low risk of this

happening. So for most of us this

would be the first time with the

severity in their career.

“It’s not that it doesn’t happen but

its often avery defined little patch,

which goes inbelts and those farmers

that are in the belts probably know

who they are and usually do carry

someinsurance. “It’s about economics

Isuppose, it’s hardtoinsure, it’scostly

and so we can recognise itfrom an

insurance company point ofview as

well. It’svery hard to planfor so that’s

why its reasonably hard for them to

provide this cover.’’

Mr Leadley said high value crops

would likely have cover.

But farmers werelikelytocoverjust

the main, highest value crop that was

costly togrow, not some oftheir more

commodity­type crops.

“In arable rotation, the spread of

crops helps reduce risk, becausehail is

just one risk that you can insure for,

fire isanother one and floods, things

like that, sohaving some earlier crops

and later crops can reduce the risk.”

He said white clover and red clover

crops on his own farm had suffered

bruising but would likely fully recover

as they were not yet at the productive

stage.

His early wheat had been smashed

around, and the sweet corn ‘‘given a

hard time’’.

Mr Leadley said anassessor would

visit each property and work out the

percentages of potential yield loss.

“It’s extremely complex.”

Final settlement was unlikely to

happen until after harvest to have all

the data.

He said for many farmers it was

worth inspecting the crops and working

with their agronomist how best to

moveforward withthe crop to prevent

further damage such asdisease pressure.

“It’s pretty tough decisions for

farmers who, if you’re looking at a

reduced yield therefore reduced earnings,

but asked actually to maybe

spend alittle bit more onthe crop to

protect what’s there aswell, it’s not

easy decisions.”

South of Ashburton, Charees

Vineyard owner Charlie Hill, only last

week voicing concern any future

thunderstorm might have towipe out

his vineyard, said Wednesday’s deluge

was “bad, but not total.’’

Mr Hill said the vines, already

thinned in preparation for growth, was

hit by the hail whipping off their tops

“like it was hit by ahedge hammer.”

‘‘We’re flat out spraying it with

some sulphur and copper and liquid

seaweed,” hesaid.

It was started first thing Thursday,

in an attempttodosome vine recovery

work.

“We aregoingtoget aloss there but

we are going to feed it extra feed to

make itsowehave actually got some

cane totie down next year so it keeps

growing.

“It’s abit early to know how much

damage has been done.”

“It’s awee bit of amessbut we’llsee

what happens,” he said.“We should

know (how bad it is) by Christmas

time, hopefully.”

Hanrahan elected to board

Mid Canterbury arable farmer Randal

Hanrahan, pictured, has been

elected to the Irrigation New Zealand

board of directors.

He will join North Otago

Federated Farmers vice­president

Jared Ross, also elected.

The result was announced at the

annual general meeting in Christchurch

last week.

Mr Hanrahan, who farms at Fairton

along State Highway One, stood

for the board of directors believing

there needed to be more irrigator

representation on the board.

He has 307 hectares under irrigation

and along with his arable crops

runs abeef finishing operation..

‘‘I believe that it is of fundamental

importance that there is a strong

representative presence on the board

from irrigators, and in particular from

the Canterbury region, being the

largest area of irrigators contributing

to Irrigation NZ,’’ he said, running for

election.

‘‘On our property I have had

involvement in the evolution from

some dry land to border dyke, wide

borders and the transformation to

overhead irrigation, which now

encompasses our entire effective

area.

‘‘We have been early adopters of

soil moisture monitoring, VRI and

fertigation technologies that are now

foremost in our farming operation.’’

Mr Hanrahan said current strategic

priorities were taking Irrigation NZ in

the right direction, but ‘‘in my view

focusing on advocacy, innovation and

communication are critical as we

move forward in the current challenging

environment of proposed changes

that have the potential to severely

impact all of our businesses.’’

He said the wider public needed to

know about the positive work ­and

the significant changes ­ that had

already taken place with in the

industry.

Mr Hanrahan, along with Louise,

have afamily of four children. Along

with the farm, they operate an

agricultural contracting business and

own an established pre­school in

Ashburton.

Mr Hanrahan has extensive board

experience and sits on the board of

Ashburton Lyndhurst Irrigation Ltd

(ALIL), is board oftrustee atAshburton

Borough School as well as on a

number of other agricultural based

companies.

He was also amember ofRangitata

Diversion Race Management Ltd’s

audited self management (ASM) committee

that was integral inestablishing

and implementing the Farm Environment

Plan dashboard.
