Dog bylaw

to carry

extra bite

By NEIL CLARKSON

Dog owners are required to maintain

control of their animals around horses

under arevamp of the Waimakariri

District Council's Dog Control Bylaw.

The bylaw, passed by the council on

Tuesday, also bans the exercising of

dogs in public places from amoving

vehicle.

Both issues were raised by residents

with Crs Wendy Doody and Sandra

Stewart, and former councillor John

Meyer, who held ahearing in mid­

August to receive public submissions.

The bylaw, which comes into force on

December 16, now states: ‘‘Dogs that

are not able to be kept under effective

voice control around horses shall be

placed on alead when in the vicinity of

ahorse.’’

Anger over shooting of Hobo

By ROBYN BRISTOW

An Amberley pet owner faces abill of

about $4000 over the shooting of Hobo, a

young tortoiseshell cat.

Hobo arrived at her Bank Street home

around midnight last Wednesday,

limping and dragging her left front leg.

She is now in danger of losing her leg

after atrip to the North Canterbury

Veterinarian Clinic in Amberley.

Imaging showed she had alead pellet

in her shoulder and two broken bones.

It is likely the bill for surgery to

remove the lead and set the bones could

reach $4000, particularly with aftercare.

When the North Canterbury News went

to print, it was still not known if Hobo’s

leg could be saved.

Barb Demmock says she is angry that

anyone would take apot shot at Hobo

with apellet gun.

‘‘She has been deliberately shot.

Someone has been out to get her.’’

While Hobo was known to venture

away from home, it was only in Dock

Creek, as she was too frightened to try to

cross the road, Barb says. This is

evidenced by the rats she brings home.

The incident has been reported to the

Amberley police in the hope that, if the

person who shot the cat can be found,

they can foot the bill for her surgery and

care.

Council adopts new dog control bylaw

From Page 1

Horserider Robin Marshall,

who exercises her horses

most days on the hills just

northofRangiora, welcomes

the change.

‘‘I guess it couldhavegone

further, but it would appear to

very much place the onus on

owners to maintain effective

control of their dogs around

horses.’’

Robinsays the gravel roads

on the hills above Ashleyare

increasingly popular with

recreational users —horse

runners and walkers,

including those exercising

was prettyspecial. And that is always the

aim, says outgoing PTA chairwoman Alex

McNabb.

‘‘It'samassive job, organising, planning,

and assemblingthe grotto every year. In

2017, it ended up in the too­hardbasket;

theirdogs.

Most dog owners do the

right thing, and ensure their

animal is under control when

horses approach, she says.

However, some simply don't

have meaningfulcontrol of

theirdogs.

It has led to someheated

exchanges,she says.

‘‘Onewoman told me that

her dog was fine around

horses as it ran towards me. It

neverseemed to occur to her

that some horses get very

nervous when dogs run at

them,orstartmoving around

theirlegs.’’

Robinsays she understands

that all recreational users are

out to enjoy the countryside.

It's simply amatter of people

showing reasonable respect

for other users.

‘‘My understandingisthat

the bylaw has always

required dogs to be kept

undercontinuousand

effective control at all times

in public places. The fact that

the councilhas added the

horseclause recognises the

very real safety risk for riders

if the dog is not under

control.’’

Robinsays she also

welcomes the ban on running

dogs frombehind vehicles.‘‘It

happens all the time up here.

The other day someone drove

andthis year's event took five days to set

up,with astruggle to find enough

volunteers to get it off the ground.

Fire restrictions move closer

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The potentialfor an extreme

fire riskisgrowing across

North Canterbury afterthe

regionbaskedinagreat

springand early summer.

North Canterbury principal

rural fire officer Bruce Janes

says while it is nice and green

at the moment,arestricted

fire season could be just a

coupleofweeks away.

‘‘Overall, the fire risk at the

momentisprobably

moderate.

‘‘But it is escalating quickly.

The indices are climbing and

Ithink we will see restrictions

within aweek or two.’’

Mr Janes says the decision

over restrictions will be based

on science. In the meantime,

aircraft willtake to the air if

there are any reports of

smoke to get aquick

assessment of any

requirement to get firetrucks

and people to the site.

He urges anyone who has

had afire in the past three

months or so to checkifitis

still smouldering ,

particularlywith the forecast

nor’westwinds in the next few

days.

Mr Janessays there has

been massive growth and if

the region dries out, afire

couldspread quicklywith the

amount of fuelaround.

Little rain fell on the east

coastofthe SouthIsland in

the latest roundofrough

weather, but the

accompanying nor’wester

dried out any long grass and

vegetationthroughout the

district.

‘‘We will just havetowait

and see what Mother Nature

brings,’’ Mr Janes says.

Long­time Waipara

resident John McCaskey is

worried about the growing

fire riskinNorth Canterbury.

He believes the district’s

3

roadsides need urgent

attention.

‘‘The New Zealand

Transport Agency has mowed

some of the roadsides but

appear to havecalled an early

Christmas or run out of

money,’’ he says.

‘‘Also,north­west of

Waiparaand Amberley, we

now have some significant

forestry, someofwhich has

been harvested,leaving a

timebomb of fire fuel,’’ Mr

McCaskey says.

The slash could also prove a

probleminheavy rain if it was

swept away intostreams and

bridges, he says.

Tearing up the roads ... Burnt­out tyres were left at the scene, still on their rims.

Boy racers damage road

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Boys racersrippedupbitumen,

urinated in aresident’s garden, broke

bottles, and left wheels and litter

behindafter an early­morningvisit to

the Mandeville area lastSunday.

Their anticsaround JacksonsRoad

and Tram Road left nearby residents

feeling threatened. Some feared that

the reckless behaviour of the group

was going to end in tragedy.

The group turned up around 2.45am

and performed burnoutsonJacksons

Road, ripping up the tarseal, while

black skidmarks were also left behind

on Tram Road.

Once the tyresofatleastone car

were shreddedand on fire, two of the

wheelswere takenoff and left behind

along with glass and bottles.

‘‘You could hear themfixing cars

and both wheels coming off. They come

prepared. They don’t worry about

changing tyresany more,’’aresident

said.

Burningrubber couldbesmelt

inside nearby houses, and one resident

said at leasttwo girlshad used their

garden as atoilet and couldbeseen

runningfrom the property.

‘‘It is just ridiculous. It is not safe.

Someoneisgoingtoget killed,’’ the

resident said.

The group was not just kids.

‘‘Therewere olderpeople there;

they were well organised, and probably

call themselves car enthusiasts.’’

Previously, when agroup of boy

racers had turnedupthe area, it was

later learnedthey had come from

Cashmere. ‘‘They haven’t been back for

awhile.’’

Photos were takenofthe earlier

group and residents had complained to

the policepreviously.

Filipinos build lives

Last weekIhad the pleasure of

meeting with Filipino students at

Amuri Area School with List MP Paulo

Garcia.

The 40 Filipino students make up a

significant proportionofthe schoolroll

of 347.

Paulo is New Zealand’s first Filipino

MP and it was greatfor him to make

contact with this part of the North

Canterbury community, as he also did

recently in Marlborough.

Most of the childrenstill spoke

Tagalog, the national language of the

Philippines, while for others it had

faded over the years.

What they all share as families are

the huge sacrifices theyhave made,

including separating from each other

for many months, to createabetterlife

here.

The Filipino community has become

an important part of the Amuri area;

local businesses, and the dairy

industry, are reliant on them to staff

their farms, cafes and more.

Girls' Night Out asellout

AChristmas shopping night

fundraiser organised by

Rangiora’s Sarah McMinn

was asellout success.

Tickets to AGirls’ Night Out

sold out before the event and

shoppers were queuing at the

door 30 minutes before

opening time at 7.30pm last

Thursday.

The event was held at the

Rangiora A&P Showgrounds

function centre to raise funds

for the Rangiora Health Hub.

It encouraged people to shop

locally and gave women a

night out.

Funds raised on the night

will be used to buy partner

beds for the health hub.

Each bed costs about $2000,

Sarah says, and it is likely

there will be enough money

Delight over graduation

It was very specialtoattend agraduation

ceremony in the Christchurch Town Hall

on November20, where AmuriArea

School students were rewarded after their

individualinvolvement in an experience

and extension programme.

The programme is backedbyLincoln

and Canterbury universities.

The Children’sUniversity Canterbury

Partnership offerseducational

experiences for children and recognises

theirachievements through the award of

formal certificates and graduation.

The model has astrongemphasis on

experienceasasignificant learning tool,

and must link in someway to auniversity

course.

It was great to seethe delight of the

children, their parentsand teachers as

they paraded in full graduation regalia —

robe,coloursand mortar board.

In the Omihi Hall on November 25, the

boardofEventful Hurunui hosted a

workshopwith aTaurangasocial media

managementexpert,Brent Ireland, from

Collab Digital.

The learning opportunity focused on

social mediaand how it may assist

businesses and individuals.

Awell known media guru, Leo Burnett,

said:“Make it simple, make it memorable,

make it inviting to lookatand make it fun

to read.’’

With social media becoming such a

powerfuland cost­effective way of

marketing,the seminarwas about

upskilling in this fast­moving space.

Businesses and eventsare encouraged

to register on the Eventful Hurunui

website by emailing

info@eventfulhurunui.co.nz. This free

platform is designed to become the “go­to”

resourcefor events in the Hurunui.

The openingofthe AmuriEstate

wedding and conferencevenue gives us

another fine asset in the Hurunui District.

The venue needs to be seentobe

believed. Its breathtakingviewsofthe

Southern Alps and close proximityto

Hanmer Springs makesitisanidyllic

setting for awedding or conference.

The council has adopted the annual

report for the yearendedJune 30, 2019.

The council continues to focus on

affordability and prudent financial

management, and this has held us in good

steadtodeal with the adverse events that

Mother Nature has thrown our way.

We remain confident that the recovery of

the HurunuiDistrictfrom the 2016

Hurunui­Kaikoura earthquake remains on

track.

`We just need to get SH1 sorted out'

By DAVID HILL

ShonaPowell expectsabusy

threeyears ahead for the

Woodend­Sefton Community

Board.

Populationgrowth, roading and

public transport remain the

biggest issues facing the

Woodend, Pegasus and Waikuku

areasfor the boardthat was

elected in October.

‘‘We justneed to get State

Highway 1sorted out and get

everything in place to supportthe

growth,’’ saysShona, who has

been re­appointed chairwoman.

‘‘With Ravenswood coming

along andthe supermarket

opening next year, it will create a

wholenew community.’’

She saysthe boardhas

welcomed new board member

Mark Paterson,who also chairs

the WoodendCommunity

Association, and the two council

appointees have changed, withCr

Philip Redmondand Cr Sandra

Stewart joining.

‘‘It’s really business as usual.

We had set the directionwe

wanted to head before the

election and it hasn’treally

changed.And the mayor (Dan

Gordon) has identified roading is

an issuehewould like to pursue

as well, which we are very,very

pleasedabout.’’

Shonasays one of the priorities

for thenew term will be improving

connections between the different

communities.

‘‘We wanttomake sure there’s a

community feel between them,

particularly Woodend,

Ravenswoodand Pegasus.

‘‘Thechallenge is to connect

new residents with their new

community, and it’s achallenge

that many communities in the

Waimakariri are finding.

‘‘Residents commuting into

Christchurch often see the city as

the place theyconnect with,but

that’s changing.’’

She saysthe boardhas made 15

submissions so far in 2019,

includingtothe Transport Agency

on roadsafety,toEnvironment

Canterbury on the bus service

reviews, and to the Waimakariri

District Council on the annual

plan and proposed bylaws.

‘‘It’s been abusy yearfor

making submissions, but that’s

just one of the ways we represent

the community in giving it avoice

and we takefull advantage of it.’’

She welcomesnews of

improvedpublic transport

connections for Woodend with

Kaiapoi and Rangiora.

suction draws fluid from the surrounding

tissue back into the discs, re-hydrating

them. This is the key! Discs do not have

their own blood supply, they rely on trans

fer of fluid from the surrounding tissue to

keep them healthy and hydrated and over

the years as discs get thinner with age, they

lose the ability to take on fluid (just like

squeezing a sponge) and they start to

de-hydrate.

De-Hydrated discs are less flexible, they are

harder, more prone to injury, they interfere

with nerve roots creating pain and

ultimately the de-hydration causes degen

eration. The Teeter Inversion table slowly

and gently brings the hydration back into

the discs, plumping them up. It separates

the nerve roots far more effectively and

returns quality of life

Muscles: Alot of pain is muscular, when

muscles are stressed they become tight

which restricts the flow of blood and lymph

through the muscles so toxins build up,

Co2 and Lactic Acid. Traction opens up the

muscles, Rhythmic Traction, is a gentle

rocking motion that stimulates circulation

and encourages blood flow through the

muscles, which clears the lactic acid into

your lymph system where it stimulates

lymph flow and deals with it. Most people

with serious neck issues see a large

improvement after only one treatment.

Then try aTeeter

WHY INVERSION?

Because in most cases it works! Inversion Therapyisthe oldest recorded

medical curefor backissues,first recorded by Hippocrates in 400 BC,

otherwise knownasspinal traction. Traction wasused by modern

hospitals formanyyears howeverbecauseitisaslow processand ties

up hospital beds formanyweeks,they recently stopped using the

treatment.

Inversion Therapyisgentleand relaxing if done properly and has many

other benefits apartfromrelievingback pain, it helps realignthe spine

and pelvic area, loosens up tightmuscles,increases oxygen to the brain,

stimulatescirculation and the lymphatic system and has manyother

benefits.

Inversion NZ have been teaching people howtouse this treatmentfor

over twelveyears, it is an amazing process with most people getting off

the Teeter pain free forthe first time in years or with their pain substantially

reduced.The relief usually lasts around 30 minutes to three hours

and as the pain returns youuse the machine again, afterusing this

method of treatment, in afew weeks the relief increases,which is the

discs starting to retain morefluid,muscles starting to loosen up and the

body coming back into alignment. In our experiencemost people are

pain free in around three months,then the Teeter is used daily to

maintain the health of the body.

WHY TEETER?

Thebiggest issue with inversion tables is thereisnosafetystandards

thatneed to be met.Because of this,other brands use mild steel for

100% of the metal involved.Mildsteel is greatfor static loads,inother

wordsthings thatdon’t move such as chairs,tables etc, howeverwith

Inversion Therapythereisconsiderable movementand this movement

causes mild steel to flex. Because it alwaysflexes in the same placeit

eventually causes metal fatigue and can result in failure.

AllTeeters aremanufactured forextreme safety. Heattreatedhigh

tensile steel has been used in all areas subjectedtostress.High tensile

steel is far stronger and most importantly does not flex. This means

Teeters arethe strongest and safest tables on the market today.

Posture: Poor posture is one of the

major cases of pain and is amajor contributor

to the deterioration of the body with

age.Adifferenceinleg length causes most

of the hip and knee issues, asthey continue

to place uneven loads on the joints;

similar to the wheels out of alignment on

your car.

Trying to correct posture is extremely

difficult due to muscle memory, as it

constantly pulls the muscles back to where

they were. At alevel of 40 degrees or more

on the Teeter, the muscle groups open up

and eventually come back into alignment,

using the table daily, does not allow the

muscle memory to pull them back out of

alignment and slowly the muscles start to

lose their memory and go with the flow,

allowing the body to come back into

correct posture. Then using the table once a

day will ensureitiskeptthere.

This is pure logic, if amachine is out of

alignment it does not last long, the only

difference between the body and a

machine is that the body is constantly

repairing itself, however if the wear and

tear on the body is greater than the body’s

ability to repair itself, it is aslow decline.

The Teeter slowly brings the body out of its

decline and allows the body to repair itself,

resulting in afar healthier life.

If you are serious about investing in your

health and really sorting your issues out,

come see us at one of our local roadshows,

youhavenothing to lose and chancesare,a

lot to gain.

Accommodation is in short supply as the

new summer season hots up in Kaikoura.

DestinationKaikoura’s Glenn Ormsby

says the town’stourism operators are

feeling positive as the region continuesto

bounceback fromthe 2016 earthquake.

‘‘In the last three weekends

accommodation has beensold out, with

the Royalvisit and events the two

previous weekends,’’ Mr Ormsbysaid last

week.

‘‘The feedback fromthe operators in

town is very promising and forward

bookings are very strong.’’

He encourages visitors planning to stay

overnight in Kaikourathis summer to get

in contact withthe iSite, if theydon’t

have abed booked, as accommodation is

tight after the earthquake.

Work is under way on construction of

the 120­bed Sudima Hotel, which is due

to openinearly 2021,and it cannotcome

soon enough.

‘‘It willhave abeautiful view acrossthe

bay,’’MrOrmsbysays.

‘‘We have major coaching companies

from the United States and Australia

wanting to stop off with tour groupsin

Kaikoura, so once the hotel opens they

will be able to that and they will come in

winteraswell.’’

Arecord 13 cruise shipswere

scheduled to visitKaikourathis summer,

but two have been cancelled already due

to weather conditions.

Cancer survivor at fundraiser

‘‘It promises to be an inspirational

‘‘I know it is abusy timeofthe year, but

Jake is living overseas, and he is coming

Progressing ... Sudima Hotel Kaikoura is

By DAVID HILL

The new Woodend War Memorial will be

formally unveiled on Sunday.

Woodend Lions president Ian Lennie

says he is looking forward to handing

over the memorial to the community at

the end of atwo­year journey.

‘‘It’s all go. The memorial is almost

finished.

‘‘The flag pole is up and the council

just has one last tidy­up to do before

Sunday.

‘‘It’s been atwo­year journey. It took a

while to get the funding in place and

then 10 months to get it built.’’

The Woodend Lions led the

fundraising project with nearly $60,000

raised, while the Waimakariri District

Council’s greenspace team projectmanaged

the construction of the

memorial.

Mr Lennie says the memorial, located

next to the Woodend Community Centre,

will carry around 30 names of soldiers

who lost their lives.

They have been taken from memorial

boards in the Woodend Community

Centre and in the Brick Mill Cafe in

Waikuku.

Unlike the memorial boards, the new

memorial will be accessible at all times.

Mr Lennie hopes it will become afocal

point on Anzac Day.

‘‘Right from the start we identified

that Woodend didn’t have awar

memorial and we wanted to create one

with aunique and modern design.’’

He says the project has been made

possible with the support of the

Rangiora and Kaiapoi RSAs, the council

and the wider community.

‘‘Whenever we’ve asked for support,

it’s been forthcoming. It’s been ajoy to

be involved in it.’’

The memorial will be unveiled during

ashort ceremony at 11am on Sunday,

with national RSA president BJ Clark,

Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon and MP

Matt Doocey invited to attend.

Community digs deep

for Woodend hangi

By DAVID HILL

Adrienne Simpson was feeling proud

during Friday’s communityhangi and

culturalday.

The Woodend School principal was

thrilled with how the event went off, after

joining forceswith the Woodend

CommunityAssociation for the firsttime.

‘‘It’s wonderful. In the past we’ve only

had the hangi everysecondyear,but it’s

wonderful to have the support of the

community associationinraising funds

and sponsorship so we can have it as an

annual event.’’

She saidthe children spent the day

before doing ‘‘a rotationofactivities’’,

including learningMaori games, waiata,

making fry bread,flax weaving,digging the

pit for the hangi, andpeeling and

preparing vegetables.

Ateam led by ToniPitamaand assisted

by members of KaiapoiHigh School’s kapa

haka group prepared the hangi, which was

gratefully received by pupilsand

community members alike.

Woodend CommunityAssociation

president Mark Patersonsaid his

organisationwas pleased to be ableto

support the event.

‘‘The idea was that in the past the school

hasasked the families to donate goods, but

this year the community association used

itscontacts to seek funding, products and

time.

‘‘We want to try to get the community to

come into the school and see whatkids do

andwecan only grow it from here. It will

getbigger and better.’’

He saidaround $5000 was raised in

money, goods andtime to stagethe event.

‘‘The response we got from the community

wasamazing and it was actually quite easy

to put it together.’’

Pupils andvisitorswere entertained on

Friday with performancesfrom various

groups, including the Woodend School

choir and the school’sYear 7­8 jump jam

team, whichhas enjoyed recent success.

Ms Simpson says the jump jam team

wonthe Year 7­8 Xtreme category in the

South Island jumpjam championships last

CAR PARKING INMANDEVILLE

Motorists who visit Mandeville will have noticed

it’s oen hard to find acar park

People who use the area will know it’s not uncommon tosee cars parked

on the road verge and in the reserve during busy times.

To solve this problem the Council are looking at ways we can provide

more parks nearby.

Your input will inform the Council decision on what option is

supported and where car parking may be formalised in the future.

There are anumber of options we are looking at which include:

• A Reserves Act designation change to the adjacent reserve –from

a‘plantation reserve’ to a‘community reserve’. This would mean

we can tidy up the reserve (where people park now) and develop

recreation space here. It’s also asafe option as it’s beside the

shopping centre.

• Look at establishing parking on the reserve across McHughs Road.

This would also require alegal designation change from ‘plantation

reserve’ to ‘community reserve’. This option is seen as less attractive

as it would require shoppers to cross the busy stretch of road and is

further from the village.

• The third option is to work with developers to create acar park on

private land. This is needs further investigation and agreement, one

being that this will be acost toCouncil to either buy or lease land.

Visit waimakariri.govt.nz/letstalk to see maps of the first

two proposals.

Santa set to make his return

By DAVID HILL

Rangiora is gearing up for Santa’s

official return on Sunday.

Around 50 vendors have been lined

up for the Christmas Party in the Park

in Victoria Park, while float entries are

still trickling in for the annual

Rangiora Toyota Santa Parade,

Rangiora Promotions co­ordinator

Belinda Topp says.

‘‘We’ve got floats galore, with some

great new entries,’’ she says.

She says reigning champion, the

‘‘The Rangiora Borough School has

won it for three years running. They’ve

Community garden ahappy place

By SHELLEY TOPP

The Kaiapoi Community

Garden is agreat place to

make friends and learn, the

woman who began it says.

Woodend’s Helen Roberts

started the garden in 2010

after being inspired by

another community garden.

‘‘All Idid was gather some

people with skills and let

them go,’’ she says. ‘‘Look

what has happened.

‘‘We have agreat trust

running the garden now, a

really nice group of people,

and it is areally good place to

come to. It’s ahappy place,’’

she says.

‘‘We are very proud of it

because it’s alot of fun. We

have made some great

friends here.’’

Achildren’s play area,

complete with sandpit and

wooden kitchen workspace

made by the Kaiapoi Menz

Shed, has recently been

installed in the garden, which

is in the Kaiapoi Borough

School’s playing field, next to

the railway line in Hilton St.

The garden also has anew

seed­raising shed, made by

the Kaiapoi Menz Shed as

well, raised garden beds, a

‘‘bug Hilton’’, garden art, and

Flossie, the Kaiapoi Borough

School’s former dental clinic,

which was moved to the

garden for indoor workshops

during the colder months.

‘‘We held acompetition to

find aname for the building,’’

Helen explains. ‘‘‘Flossie was

the best one.’’

Produce from the garden is

garden is home to all sorts of

botanical delights.

who help.

There is also agarden­totable

garden co­ordinator Debbie

Nelson in conjunction with

the Kaiapoi Borough School.

Tidying up

the garden?

LOVE YOUR LAND

Oversummer,asthe soilreally starts to

warm, it is allgointhe garden,withcrops

activelygrowing.

Manyspring­plantedcropsare now

ready forharvest, such as potatoes,

broccoli, cabbage,lettuce, peasand broad

beans.

The vital ingredientover thenextfew

monthsiswater, as wellasmulchand

liquid fertiliserstokeepcrops thriving.

Potatoes: Everyone who hadtheircrops in

early should be enjoyingthe fruitsoftheir

effortsthis month, as most should be

ready to dig. Once theplantshave

finished floweringorwhenthe stems start

to turnyellowand wilttheyare ready to

harvest. Using agarden fork, start digging

deeplyfrom theoutsideofthe plantto

catch the outer crop. Hopefullyyou will

missforkingyour new spuds. Once

mature, thecrop willlastinthe soil for

manyweeks. Never store harvested

potatoes in the fridge. Instead, with new

potatoes, leave thesoil on themand cover

themwith adamp sack andkeep them

somewhere darkand cool.Main crop

potatoes willstillbeinthe ground.Mound

the soiluparound the baseofthe plants,

and water them deeply at least twice a

week.

Beetroot: As soon as beetslooklike they

are areasonablesizetoeat (tennis ball for

globe types or 5­7cm wide forcylindrical

ones),theycan be harvested. If the soil is

moist enough they shouldpullout easily.

If you have arow of beets, harvestthe crop

intermittently, leaving every secondor

third root in the ground.Wash andremove

the foliage andstore in thefridge.

Remember,those leaves are tasty too, so

throw theminto asalad.New seedlings or

seeds can be put in theground now too.

Radish: Nuggetsofpeppery goodness.

Oneofthe quickest crops to grow, they’re

areliablecampaignerfor the vegetable

garden.From sowingofseeds to picking

of bunches takes fourtosix weeks. Once

radishesget to size they are at theirbest.

Fresh,sweet juicypeas: Just one of the

joyfulcropsofthe early summergarden.

Pick thepods as soonasthey get to size;

this is whenthe peasare at their sweetest.

If you findany larger podsyou missed in

earlier harvests,pickthesetoo, as by

doingthisitencourages moreflowersand

then another harvest later.Peasare prone

to mildew.. You can avoid it by watering

thesoil.Itistoo latetoplantany more

The Kaiapoi Food Forest

will hold aStrawberry

Fairon Saturday next

week.

‘‘Nothing but

strawberries willbeeaten

at the parkon that day,’’

food foresttrustee Brent

Cairns says.

The trustees are inviting

growersand retailers who

sell strawberries,or any

strawberry products, to

the forest on the day to

showcase their products.

They can be anything

from fresh strawberries

and strawberry plants to

strawberry baking, icecream,

yoghurt, strawberry­based

beauty

products, strawberrythemed

clothing, or

anything in­between to

showcase the sweet fruit.

‘‘It is all about

celebrating strawberries,’’

Brent says.

Visitors to the fair will

evenbeencouraged to

dress up like astrawberry,

and there will be aprize

for thebest costume.

Therewill also be a

prize for the biggest

strawberry —andit

doesn’t have to have come

from ahome garden. It can

be purchased from a

farmer's market, produce

market or supermarket.

TheStrawberry Fair, on

December14, will run

from 1pm to 4pm.

Patrol group needsto

upgrade its vehicle

By SHELLEY TOPP

The RangioraCommunity

Patrolvolunteers have a

new patrolvehicle on their

wish list for Christmas this

year.

The patrol received an

early Christmas present as

one of MainPower’s 2019

Community Fund

recipients, but moremoney

is neededtoreplace its old

SuzukiVitara, which has

110,000kmonthe odometer.

The RangioraCommunity

Patrolwas formed24years

ago as the Rangiora

Community Watch. It is part

of the CommunityPatrols of

New Zealand network and

had aname change recently

to align with that.

The patrols are organised

and run by volunteers in

their communities and

fundedwith grants,

sponsorships and

donations.

The volunteers work

closely with police as extra

“eyes and ears” to assist

them and other agencies to

build safer communities.

The patrols are

independent from the

policebut receiveregular

policeguidance, training

and tasking.

‘‘We drivearoundthe

Upgrade needed ... Rangiora Community Patrol volunteers Des

and Judy East with the patrol car they are hoping to replace with

anew one.

business and residential

areas on the lookoutfor

anything suspicious,’’

Rangiora Community Patrol

volunteer Des Eastsays.

The volunteers also patrol

areas police ask them to

monitor.

If volunteers find any

suspicious activity, they do

not intervene. ‘‘We hang

backand we advisethe

police and they take it from

there,’’ Des says.

The patrolalso needs

morevolunteer drivers,

passengers and camera

operators.

‘‘We must have two people

in the car in case we need a

witness,’’ Des says.

Having two volunteers in

the patrolvehicle also

enablesthe driver to

concentrate on driving and

the passenger to

concentrate on observing.

‘‘We normally only

requireone shift per month

from volunteers for about

three to four hours.’’

To become avolunteer

community patrol officer,

applicantsmust be aged

over 18 and pass apolice

check.

In brief

Playcentrecelebrates

The Amberley Playcentre celebrates its

75thbirthdaythis week. Therewill be a

freesausage sizzle, facepainting and

playtime fun from11amto2pm this

Hidden treasures an important part of history

By DAVID HILL

Hiddentreasuresmay be buried on your

farm.

Heritage New Zealand (HNZ) was on

hand at the New Zealand Agricultural

Show last month to give farmers tips on

what to do if they findarchaeological

treasuresontheir farms.

Archaeologist GwenJackson says

historicalartefacts createdbefore1900

are of interest.

“UnderNew Zealand law, anything in

New Zealand that was createdby

humansand is evidence of the

occupation before 1900 is protectedas

archaeology and you have to have an

authority fromHeritage New Zealandif

you are going to impact that.”

She saysthere is awide rangeof

archaeology whichcould be found on

Canterbury farms, including Maori rock

art, the remains of pre­1900 buildings

and rabbit­proof fences.

Ms Jacksonsays thereare more than

700 known examples of Maori rock art

withinthe Ngai Tahu rohe, almost all of

it on privateland.

The Department of Conservation

recently completedarchaeological work

on Acheron Accommodation Houseat

Molesworth Station, in partnership with

On­farm heritage ... Ken Gillespie helped

New Zealand Agricultural Show. PHOTO: DAVID HILL

HNZ, she says.

The cob cottage was built in 1863to

provide aplace to stayfor travellers

between Nelson and Canterbury. It was

badly damaged in the 2016 earthquake.

Duringrepairs,archaeological

investigations found the walls were

made of local tussock, clay, animal dung

and water. Woodenwedges, or ‘‘nailing

pegs’’, werebuilt intothe cob to nail

things to the walls, but whilethe pegs

supported the doorframes and skirting

boards,nopicture railswere ever put up.

The original house had no hallway,

with one being added later with newer

materials.

Evidence of whisky bottles, mutton

bones and achild’sskipping ropewere

found underthe floor.

Southbrook falls well

short in run chase

Apowerful Leeston­Southbridge outfit

flexed its muscles to toppleclosest

rivals SouthbrookonSaturdayand leap

to the top of country cricket.

Atrio of Chamberlain brothers

conspired to defend amodest total and

After being insertedatthe toss,

Leeston­Southbridgebattled hard

Canterbury Country representative

Harry Chamberlain (26runs off 45

balls),former Dutch internationalTim

Gruijters (33 off 43), and Rupert Young

(20 off 29), brother of fringe Central

Stags star Will Young, helped Leeston­

Southbridgeeke out amodest 141 runs

before being bowledout in the 35th

over.

Paceman Sam Ermerins was the pick

of the Brook bowlers with fourwickets,

while Darryn Boyle’s enticing

outswingers snared three.

In reply, Southbrook was soon in

trouble, with former Black Caps and

Canterbury stalwart Shanan Stewart

unable to make the combined side pay

for an early drop,strangled downthe

leg side soon afterfor just 13.

Canterbury batsman Jack Boyle,

backingupfrom his sparkling92ina

Auckland Aces at Hagley Oval the

previous day, also fell cheaply, leaving

Southbrookreeling at 24/3.

Reckless shots, an unwillingness to

occupy the crease, and quality bowling

saw Southbrook bundled out for just 81

runs inside26overs. Harry

Chamberlain ripped out four wickets,

while Ben Chamberlain got two,and

Sam Chamberlainone.

The dominant win sees Leeston­

Southbridgeoccupy the top spot.

‘‘I wasdetermined that an ACL was not

‘‘We could haveattempted atougher
