Concerns<br />

over bus<br />

services<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Public transportcould be in for a<br />

shake­up in theWaimakariri District<br />

followingalaw changeallowing for<br />

the transferoftransport functions<br />

fromregionalcouncils to territorial<br />

authorities.<br />

WaimakaririMPMattDoocey<br />

signalled hisconcernsthisweek<br />

about the recentlypassed legislation,<br />

which garnered littleornopublicity.<br />

He says it could see public<br />

transportfunctions transferredfrom<br />

Environment <strong>Canterbury</strong> (ECan) to<br />

the Christchurch CityCouncil,<br />

leaving the citycouncil with<br />

influence overWaimakariri bus<br />

routes.<br />

It would alsomean Waimakariri<br />

rates going to thecity council rather<br />

thanECanand potentially<br />

‘‘Waimakariri residentshaving less<br />

access to public transport’’.<br />

“Councils werepreviously<br />

responsible for their ownbus stops<br />

and shelters, with ECan deciding<br />

where busroutes wouldgo.’’<br />

Mr Doocey saysitisvitalthat the<br />

Waimakariri district has an equalsay<br />

on public transportplanningand<br />

deliveryshould ECan agree to<br />

transfer itstransport functions to the<br />

citycouncil.<br />

Mr Doocey saidECan wrote to the<br />

Transport Ministerexpressing<br />

interest in transferring these<br />

functionsand, at the minister’s<br />

request, Section17ofthe Local<br />

Penpals mark 70 years of friendship<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Acan of condensed milk forged a<br />

friendship between penpals on<br />

opposite sides of the world that has<br />

endured for 70 years.<br />

Julie McCaw, of Amberley, and Juliet<br />

Guest, of Walsall, near Birmingham,<br />

now both aged 84, began writing to<br />

each other in 1949.<br />

They have since paid visits to each<br />

other, and have explored many parts of<br />

the world together.<br />

Their friendship arose after pupils<br />

at Christchurch Girls’ High School,<br />

where Julie was apupil, took afood<br />

item to school to send to Wallasey<br />

Girls’ High School, near Liverpool,<br />

where Juliet went to school.<br />

‘‘It was when England had food<br />

rationing and Girls’ High had some<br />

sort of connection with Wallasey High.<br />

‘‘We wrote our name on our food item<br />

and my tin of condensed milk was<br />

given to Juliet because of the<br />

similarities in our names,’’ Julie says.<br />

Juliet wrote to Julie and, from that<br />

day on, ‘‘we just kept on writing’’.<br />

Today, pen and paper have been<br />

scrapped for emails, with both<br />

proficient on iPads and cellphones.<br />

Linda’sschool days are over<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

LindaHarris says thereisnot<br />

aday that she has woken up<br />

and not wanted to go to<br />

school.<br />

But after 40 years sheis<br />

bidding farewell to Leithfield<br />

School.<br />

Linda, who has been a<br />

teacher aide, receptionist,<br />

camp mum, and comforterfor<br />

kids and parents, is retiring to<br />

‘‘take oneday at atime’’.<br />

‘‘Every day Ihave wantedto<br />

come to school. Every day has<br />

been different. There is<br />

always something positive at<br />

the endofeach day. It has<br />

been afun time,’’ she says.<br />

Therehave been only four<br />

principals during her 40 years<br />

and she has worn many hats<br />

during her fulltime work at<br />

the school.<br />

‘‘It’s been pretty incredible.<br />

Ihavebeen so lucky. It is like<br />

one big happyfamily.<br />

‘‘I am mum away from home<br />

for kids, some who get a<br />

couple of cuddles everyday.<br />

They are special little kids.A<br />

lot arenot that wee, but they<br />

enjoyabit of loving.<br />

‘‘Itsnot just the kids, but<br />

parents too,’’ saysLinda, who<br />

stillhas aspecial friendship<br />

with one pupil whomshe<br />

worked with from the age of 6<br />

to 14 during her 25 years as a<br />

Afriendship forged over condensed milk<br />

From Page 1<br />

Julie travelled to England in<br />

the 1960s, staying about four<br />

years in London and Italy,<br />

and meeting with Juliet<br />

several times.<br />

For the past four weeks<br />

Juliet has been visiting Julie<br />

in Amberley, taking day trips<br />

to various <strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

attractions, even venturing<br />

out in the highwinds last<br />

Friday to enjoy aday at the<br />

Hanmer Springs Thermal<br />

Pools and Spa.<br />

‘‘This is Juliet’s second trip<br />

out here. We have got to know<br />

each other well through trials<br />

and tribulations, as you do in<br />

life,’’ Julie says.<br />

They both married,had<br />

children, and just kept on<br />

corresponding, sharing their<br />

ups and downs, andplanning<br />

their next adventure.<br />

Juliet says it is amazing<br />

how much they havein<br />

common. They are both<br />

interested in history, read the<br />

same sort of books, and are<br />

now both ‘‘merry widows’’.<br />

Their friendship has been<br />

rewarding and, at 84,‘‘we are<br />

still gallivanting all over the<br />

world’’, Julie says.<br />

Julie taughtfor four years<br />

at Amberley School in the<br />

1970s before heading<br />

overseas. She and her<br />

husband, Hugh, returned to<br />

Christchurch so their<br />

children could attend<br />

Christchurch Girls’ and Boys’<br />

High Schools.<br />

Veteran vet calls it aday<br />

By RACHEL MACDONALD<br />

Long­serving Culverden vet<br />

John Turner has finally hung<br />

up his overalls, almost 42<br />

years to the day since he<br />

started his first job.<br />

He will be farewelled by<br />

friends, colleagues and<br />

clients at afunction tonight,<br />

where the guest list had<br />

already attracted more than<br />

200 RSVPs aweek ago.<br />

John grew up in Southland<br />

and said he always knew he<br />

wanted to be avet.<br />

‘‘So Istudied at Massey<br />

after leaving school and got<br />

my first job, in Waikari, by<br />

fluke, really.<br />

‘‘It had been advertised<br />

and afew of us had applied,<br />

but Ithought I’d call in on my<br />

way home from the <strong>North</strong><br />

Island. Igot offered the<br />

position then and there.<br />

‘‘It was just what Ihad<br />

dreamed of. There was lots of<br />

driving in those days, but we<br />

treated everything and the<br />

variety of animals kept my<br />

interest engaged.’’<br />

He says modern vets now<br />

tend to specialise, given the<br />

sheer amount of<br />

technological advance and<br />

information constantly<br />

coming online.<br />

‘‘The problems we see are<br />

still the same, but technology<br />

has leapt ahead,’’ he says.<br />

‘‘We now do alot of digital<br />

cow and sheep pregnancy<br />

scanning, for example, so that<br />

farmers can plan the future<br />

management of resources<br />

such as feed.’’<br />

The start of his career also<br />

coincided with the<br />

introduction of irrigation to<br />

the region in the 1980s, he<br />

says, and as dairying gained<br />

traction and grew, he grew<br />

with it.<br />

‘‘The movement towards<br />

dairy was something<br />

different, with alot of<br />

potential.’’<br />

Rather than being<br />

traditional family businesses,<br />

these were bigger clients<br />

with specific expectations.<br />

‘‘So we started <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> Veterinary<br />

Clinics, with me here in<br />

Culverden, and other<br />

partners in Waikari, Cheviot<br />

and Amberley.<br />

‘‘The four of us were good<br />

friends, getting together<br />

monthly, and learning from<br />

each other too.<br />

‘‘Since then, we’ve grown<br />

the business by taking on<br />

good people who have the<br />

same values that we have had<br />

right from the beginning.’’<br />

John also tips his hat to the<br />

local <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

community in general when it<br />

comes to the practice’s<br />

success.<br />

‘‘The people up here are<br />

amazing. They have stuck<br />

with us through thick and<br />

thin, and Icannot say how<br />

much Ihave appreciated that<br />

support.’’<br />

Stepping into retirement ... ‘‘The people up here are amazing,’’<br />

Waimakariri bus fears aired by Doocey<br />

From Page 1<br />

Parliament’sHansard<br />

records, which providean<br />

account of the debate on the<br />

bill, states:“Lastly,atthe<br />

request of the Minister of<br />

Transport, the bill also<br />

includes aprovision to<br />

enable transport functions<br />

to be transferred between<br />

regional councils and<br />

territorial authorities.<br />

It continues: ‘‘Thereis<br />

interest in <strong>Canterbury</strong> in<br />

transferring these functions<br />

between Environment<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> and the<br />

Christchurch City Council.”<br />

Mr Dooceysays he is a<br />

fierce advocate for ensuring<br />

the Waimakariridistricthas<br />

the resourcesand<br />

infrastructure to meet its<br />

currentand future growth.<br />

‘‘When our Waikukubus<br />

route was threatenedthis<br />

year, Ijoined withresidents<br />

in challenging this proposal<br />

becauseweknew it’s<br />

important bus routes are<br />

retained for futuregrowth<br />

and thatweneed to ensure<br />

elderlyand young peoplein<br />

our communities have<br />

accesstopublic transport.<br />

“We have lost out on our<br />

local motorway project that<br />

includedthe much­needed<br />

Woodend Bypass—wemust<br />

ensure we do not lose our<br />

say on our bus routes,” he<br />

says.<br />

Waimakariri Mayor Dan<br />

Gordon says his council is<br />

aware of the letter written to<br />

the minister asking for the<br />

change to the Local<br />

Government Act.<br />

However, he says until<br />

there is aproposal for the<br />

transfer of the<br />

responsibility, it is too early<br />

to say if atransfer would be<br />

in the bestinterests of the<br />

district.<br />

‘‘In the joint letter<br />

requestingthe change, it’s<br />

notedthat any transfer<br />

wouldneed to align with the<br />

wishes of all Cantabrians.<br />

‘‘This is something we<br />

wouldneed to consulton<br />

with the community to see if<br />

they supportit, before our<br />

council decidesona<br />

position.’’<br />

Mr Gordon said his<br />

council would always<br />

advocate on behalf of its<br />

residents for improvements<br />

to public transport.<br />

Toot for Tucker gathers arecord haul<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Arecord 2200 bagswere<br />

returned during last week’s<br />

Toot for Tuckerfood collection.<br />

Organiser Bev Wrightsaid she<br />

was amazed by the response.<br />

‘‘It was avery successful Toot<br />

for Tucker. It was agood night<br />

and we are grateful it wasn’t<br />

raining.’’<br />

She was particularly<br />

impressedwith the return from<br />

Oxford and Cust, with 23<br />

percent of the 880 bags<br />

deliveredbeing returned on the<br />

night, whichwent to the Oxford<br />

CommunityTrust’s food bank.<br />

‘‘It was huge.<br />

‘‘It was an outstanding<br />

responsefrom those<br />

communities and it was areally<br />

good night all round.’’<br />

Bev said the volunteer<br />

firefighters collectingthe food<br />

notedhow heavy the bags were<br />

this year.<br />

‘‘We were very impressed<br />

with the amount of food and the<br />

quality of the food in the bags,<br />

whichshows people have been<br />

very generous.<br />

‘‘Normally, the fire brigade<br />

guys could pick up six bags, but<br />

this year theysaid they could<br />

only carryfour.’’<br />

She says donations included<br />

toothbrushes, toothpaste, soaps,<br />

flannels and Christmas goodies,<br />

as well as food.<br />

The only drawback on the<br />

Tuesday night appearedtobe<br />

that some people could not hear<br />

the noise of the tootingand<br />

sirens in some areas due to the<br />

wind and missed the collection.<br />

Rangiora Salvation Army<br />

captain Nigel De Maine<br />

describedthe response as<br />

phenomenal, with more than<br />

1000 bags collected in Rangiora<br />

and 300 in the Woodend/<br />

Pegasus area.<br />

Bags are still coming in, so he<br />

estimates nearly 1500 have been<br />

received all together by the<br />

Salvation Army’sfood bank.<br />

‘‘We are eternally grateful.We<br />

live in such acaring community<br />

which trusts us to be<br />

responsible in distributingthe<br />

food as widely as we possibly<br />

can,’’Nigel says.<br />

‘‘We are thankful to everyone<br />

who tookpart,whether in giving<br />

food, collectingorinsorting it<br />

out.<br />

‘‘It was amazing and it will<br />

supplyour food banksuper well<br />

over Christmas and in the<br />

monthstocome.’’<br />

Donationscan still be<br />

dropped off at the Salvation<br />

Army’sFamily StoreinAlbert<br />

Street, Rangiora, between9am<br />

and 4pm, Monday to Friday.<br />

The FamilyStore will be open<br />

until <strong>12</strong>pm on Christmas Eve<br />

and will open on <strong>December</strong>30<br />

and 31 as atrial.<br />

Nigel asksthat donations be<br />

dropped off only whenthe store<br />

is open.<br />

He saysthe Salvation Army is<br />

hosting aChristmasDay service<br />

at 10am and everyone is<br />

welcome.<br />

Barks of approval as<br />

new dog park opens<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

Kaiapoi’s first dog park is ahit with<br />

visitors and their canine companions.<br />

The Waimakariri District Councilowned<br />

park in Charles St was opened<br />

recently by Waimakariri District Mayor<br />

Dan Gordon along with aformer<br />

resident of the land, Barbara Townsend.<br />

‘‘It is great to see the dogs and their<br />

owners enjoying themselves,’’ he said<br />

during the opening. ‘‘It is such afun way<br />

to open the dog park.”<br />

It sits on former red zone land and<br />

features many of the trees and shrubs<br />

previously in private gardens, so it<br />

already has the look of an established<br />

park.<br />

Pathways, park benches, water<br />

drinking stations for canines and<br />

humans, and astick library have been<br />

added to the mix.<br />

The council now has four dog parks.<br />

One straddles both Pegasus and<br />

Woodend, and two are in Rangiora.<br />

The Kaiapoi Dog Park has three<br />

entrances, off Charles St, Jollie St and<br />

from the Honda Forest area.<br />

Visitors spoken to at the park last<br />

Sunday morning said they loved the new<br />

facility.<br />

Kevin Boniface, of Kaiapoi, was<br />

visiting with his English springer<br />

spaniel, Koda.<br />

The new park saved them from going<br />

over to one of the Rangiora dog parks, he<br />

said.<br />

‘‘There are lots of trees and lots of new<br />

smells for Koda to investigate here.’’<br />

Melissa Clark and Irving Harrison, of<br />

Kaiapoi, had their dog, Missy, alonghaired<br />

Jack Russell, at the park on<br />

Walk time ... Kevin Boniface, of Kaiapoi,<br />

and his English springer spaniel, Koda, are<br />

big fans of Kaiapoi’s new dog park.<br />

Sunday. They said it was an ‘‘awesome’’<br />

new place for dogs.<br />

‘‘It is agood place for socialising for<br />

dogs and people,’’ Melissa said.<br />

Robyn Spinks, of Kaiapoi, who had her<br />

schnauzer, Oskar, at the park, agreed.<br />

‘‘It’s fabulous. Oskar loves it. He loves<br />

socialising with other dogs. They (the<br />

council) have done agreat job.’’<br />

MAYOR CRAIG MACKLE<br />

Bridge help appreciated<br />

Last weekitwas awesome to officially<br />

open the new Hawthorne Bridge. This<br />

was my firstofficialopeningasmayor,<br />

but more importantly is amilestone<br />

peoplehave beenlooking forward to for<br />

the last three years.<br />

It has been along road to getting a<br />

new bridge, but good thingstake time.<br />

The bridgeispart of a$5.7 million<br />

project to replace six bridgesacross the<br />

district.<br />

Takingthe time to build relationships<br />

and plan the work properly meant the<br />

work is 95% funded by the New Zealand<br />

Transport Agency (NZTA), and the<br />

bridges are heavily future­proofed.<br />

This saves millions for our small<br />

ratepayer base bothnow and for the<br />

next 20 or 30 years.<br />

Thank you to NZTA and the<br />

governmentfor their fundinghelp,and<br />

the rebuild team for getting the work<br />

done. Ilook forward to seeing all six<br />

bridges finished by Junenext year.<br />

Meanwhile, please be patient and<br />

sensible out there on the roads.<br />

In other goodnews this week, the<br />

council has received$333,000 from the<br />

government’s Tourism Infrastructure<br />

Fund. The cash is for two projects —<br />

improving recycling bins across<br />

Advisory group holds first meeting over age-friendly plan<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Anew advisory group has been set up to<br />

implement the Waimakariri District<br />

Council’s age­friendly plan.<br />

The group held its first meeting last<br />

month, after the recent adoption of the<br />

plan.<br />

Waimakariri District Council<br />

community development adviser<br />

Madeleine Burdon says the plan focuses<br />

on eight areas, identified by aWorld<br />

Health Organisation (WHO) initiative,<br />

including outdoor spaces and public<br />

buildings, transport and mobility,<br />

housing, social participation, respect and<br />

social inclusion, and health services.<br />

Newly appointed chairwoman Joanne<br />

Gumbrell says the group is grateful for the<br />

work of the steering group in putting the<br />

plan together.<br />

‘‘It’s exciting to move into the<br />

implementation stage and we look<br />

forward to Waimakariri becoming an even<br />

better place for older people to live in.”<br />

The group plans to keep the wider<br />

community updated on its work and will<br />

report regularly to the council, including<br />

any concerns or opportunities raised by<br />

older people.<br />

Several cities and communities around<br />

the world have taken up this WHO<br />

initiative, with only four established in<br />

New Zealand. The Waimakariri district is<br />

the only one in the South Island to<br />

date.<br />

The Ministry of Internal Affairs’ Office<br />

for Seniors partly funded the project and<br />

has asked the local group to be acase<br />

study.<br />

Anetwork of groups interested in these<br />

areas will be formed who will work with<br />

the council to progress the plan, she says.<br />

Anyone interested should contact<br />

Madeleine Burdon on (0800) 965 468 or<br />

email madeleine.burdon@wmk.govt.nz.<br />

Deputy chair for mayor<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Dan Gordon has been appointed<br />

deputy chairman of the Greater<br />

Christchurch Partnership Committee.<br />

He might be the new mayor on the<br />

committee, but he was chosen ahead<br />

of his Christchurch and Selwyn<br />

counterparts to be the<br />

deputy to independent<br />

chairman Bill Wasley.<br />

‘‘I was thrilled to be<br />

put up for the role. The<br />

partnership is in really<br />

good shape and we are<br />

looking at the sort of<br />

issues we would like to<br />

work on jointly over the<br />

next three years.’’<br />

Mr Gordon says<br />

managing growth<br />

remains the overriding<br />

objective for the Greater<br />

Christchurch partners.<br />

‘‘I have previously been on the<br />

partnership and when the Urban<br />

Development Strategy was first put<br />

together Iwas on the hearings panel,<br />

so Ihave some experience.’’<br />

The Greater Christchurch<br />

Partnership Committee includes the<br />

mayor and two councillors from the<br />

Christchurch, Selwyn and<br />

Waimakariri councils, as well as<br />

Environment <strong>Canterbury</strong>’s chair and<br />

two councillors.<br />

Other partners include Te Runanga<br />

‘‘I decided this term it<br />

was important to bring a<br />

new councillor through<br />

to give them an idea of<br />

the wider issues,’’ Mr<br />

Gordon says.<br />

He says he has also<br />

been enjoying getting to<br />

Mayoral Forum.<br />

‘‘I discovered I’m<br />

related to the mayor of<br />

Kaikoura (Craig Mackle).<br />

It may be distant connection, but we’re<br />

related.<br />

‘‘I’ve found that it’s areally good<br />

supportive body and Ilook forward to<br />

working with the other mayors.’’<br />

The mayoral forum meets again in<br />

January for aplanning session, at<br />

which the mayors will consider the<br />

issues on which they will be working<br />

together and advocating to<br />

government about over the next three<br />

years.<br />

Roading and freshwater reforms are<br />

likely to be high on the agenda.<br />

Town­wide appeal ... Stalls were peppered in clusters around Amberley for the festival.<br />

PHOTOS: TRISH COLEMAN<br />

Amberley abuzz for festival<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Amberley sparkled last<br />

Thursday night.<br />

The town heralded in the<br />

festive season in style.<br />

The crowd turned out to<br />

shop locally, and enjoy ahuge<br />

array of stalls, offering food,<br />

crafts, arts and arange of<br />

gifts, and entertainment by<br />

buskers and bands.<br />

It was all part of<br />

AmberleyNZ’s inaugural<br />

Christmas Festival.<br />

Mother Nature tried to<br />

spoil the party, whipping up a<br />

brisk cool wind, but no­one<br />

cared, especially the<br />

children who were delighted<br />

to see Santa, get their photo<br />

taken with him, listen to the<br />

carols, and enjoy acookie<br />

workshop.<br />

Stalls were in clusters<br />

alongside Amberley’s<br />

eclectic mix of businesses,<br />

ensuring every part of the<br />

town was supported.<br />

AmberleyNZ spokeswoman<br />

Trish Coleman said the<br />

inaugural event was so<br />

successful that planning has<br />

already started for next year.<br />

‘‘We are very, very happy<br />

with the festival and taking<br />

feedback so we can fine­tune<br />

the event next year.’’<br />

She says the hard work of<br />

Claire Inkson and Zoe Topp<br />

in organising the many parts<br />

of the festival helped make it<br />

ahuge success.<br />

The festival ran from 4pm<br />

to 8pm, and included a<br />

Wishing Tree in the Hurunui<br />

Library for visitors to drop off<br />

gifts for those in need, as well<br />

as enjoy Christmas story<br />

readings for children.<br />

Claire said the synergy<br />

between the community and<br />

businesses was an important<br />

The two studs havejoined<br />

Ian Stevensonsays the ram<br />

investment.<br />

“In order for us to continue to<br />

‘‘This ramisagutsy, meaty<br />

Poll dorset ram bound for Chile<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

Oxford farmers Dick and Ann Frahm<br />

have been breeding poll dorset sheep<br />

since 2005, and this year the high quality<br />

of their breed was acknowledged with<br />

awards at the Amberley and<br />

Christchurch A&P shows.<br />

It has been an exciting time for the<br />

couple, who also sold one of their awardwinning<br />

rams to aChilean buyer for<br />

$3000 at the <strong>Canterbury</strong> show's elite ewe<br />

and ram sale in Christchurch on<br />

November 29.<br />

The sale showed their poll dorsets are<br />

highly regarded commercially and are<br />

now also being recognised in the global<br />

sheep market.<br />

Dick and Ann own Gracebrooke Stud,<br />

a110­hectare irrigated sheep, beef and<br />

cropping farm named after their two<br />

daughters, Grace, aged 17, and Brooke,<br />

20. They also have ason, Mitchell, 15.<br />

The couple have 140 breeding ewes on<br />

the farm producing a180 percent<br />

lambing percentage, and this year they<br />

have 55 ewe­hogget replacements going<br />

back into the flock.<br />

Dick and Ann also have two off­farm<br />

jobs. Ann works as ateacher­aide four<br />

days aweek at Clarkville School and<br />

Dick, who is also aqualified butcher, is<br />

aseasonal night­shift worker at the<br />

Silver Fern Farms freezing works in<br />

Belfast.<br />

It is ahectic schedule at times. ‘‘We<br />

both pass each other on the road,’’ he<br />

says.<br />

Dick is also the Poll Dorset Breed<br />

Committee’s vice­president and last<br />

weekend the couple travelled to the<br />

<strong>North</strong> Island for Saturday’s Whangarei<br />

A&P Show where Dick was judge of the<br />

poll dorsets, which are one of New<br />

Zealand’s most popular terminal sires<br />

(meat­producing breed) due to their<br />

Backing for smaller scheme<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Farmers have swungbehindarevised<br />

Hurunui irrigation scheme.<br />

Amuri Irrigation Company (AIC) saysit<br />

has receivedenough interest to advance<br />

to the next stage of design and<br />

developmentafter the issuing of a<br />

Product Disclosure Statement(PDS) in<br />

November to fundasmaller schemethan<br />

one proposed earlierinthe year.<br />

The PDS closed at the end of November<br />

for aproposed 2000 to 3000­hectare piped<br />

schemetosupply farms near the <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> townsofHawardenand<br />

Waikari.<br />

AIC says the area has suffered<br />

significantly from the impact of drought<br />

over recent years and an irrigation<br />

schemewill bringopportunitiesand<br />

certaintytothose farming in the area.<br />

AIC chairmanDavid Croft says the<br />

company is excited to have passedthe<br />

first hurdle, taking it another step closer<br />

to deliveringaviableschemetothe south<br />

bank of the Hurunui River.<br />

‘‘We are pleasedtoreceivethe<br />

continued support of farmers in the area<br />

and that our effortsover the lastyear<br />

have resulted in apositive response to<br />

our latest PDS.<br />

‘‘While thereisstillmuch work to do<br />

before we can proceed with the option, it<br />

is heartening to continue our forward<br />

motion on the project.’’<br />

The proposed schemeisanalternative<br />

to the 6000 to 7000­hectarescheme<br />

proposedbyAIC which did not get<br />

enough support earlier in the year.<br />

Mr Croft said the revisedscheme was<br />

developedthrough engagement with<br />

localfarmers and builds on the hard<br />

work of the communityover many years.<br />

Waterwill be taken from an intake on<br />

the south bank of the HurunuiRiver.It<br />

will rely on consents held by the Hurunui<br />

WaterProject.<br />

The positive support means AIC can<br />

now move to developthe detailed design<br />

of the project. It is expected this will take<br />

several months.<br />

AIC ensuresall its farmers hold Farm<br />

Environment Plans (FEPs), and new<br />

irrigators need to use efficientirrigation<br />

systems and have FEPs in place prior to<br />

any water being delivered. ‘‘AIC takes its<br />

environmentalresponsibilities seriously<br />

and the new HurunuiIrrigation Scheme<br />

is an opportunity to showcaseefficient<br />

irrigation and sustainable development<br />

from the outset,’’ Mr Croft says.<br />

‘‘AICwill ensure that our community is<br />

kept well­informed as development of<br />

the scheme progresses.’’<br />

LOVE YOUR LAND


Audrey charmed by aRangiora village tour<br />

Audrey is very happy she was<br />

tempted into life at Charles<br />

Upham Retirement Village<br />

following a complimentary<br />

gourmet lunch and tour.<br />

Accompanying her on the<br />

tour was Sales Advisor<br />

Wendy Kappler who<br />

remembers Audrey as<br />

slightly hesitant during<br />

the early part of the visit,<br />

learning what life at the<br />

village would be like.<br />

Audrey enjoyed awonderful<br />

lunch and was starting on<br />

the facilities tour when she<br />

met an old friend, unaware<br />

that she was a Charles<br />

Upham resident. Soon<br />

enough her expectations of<br />

the tour and the Rangiora<br />

village had changed.<br />

Audrey was no longer<br />

hesitant. Instead she could<br />

see the village offered a<br />

strong social circle. She<br />

was also intrigued by<br />

Charles Upham’s links to<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> – an<br />

area that had featured<br />

throughout her life.<br />

“I came and had alook one<br />

day and, well, I was quite<br />

taken with it!” Audrey says.<br />

“I’m more than happy here.<br />

You see I’m a <strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

girl and I’d be lost without<br />

seeing those hills we’re<br />

looking at.”<br />

She was born in St Helen’s<br />

Hospital in Sydenham,<br />

Christchurch within a<br />

family that included three<br />

sisters. Her father worked<br />

on Rangiora farms and then<br />

for afrozen food company,<br />

Fropack, and her mother<br />

was ahomemaker.<br />

She did her schooling in<br />

Kaiapoi and Papanui, and<br />

when she married moved<br />

around New Zealand with<br />

her own young family<br />

to locations including<br />

Beachhaven, Waiouru and<br />

Te Anau, before returning<br />

to <strong>Canterbury</strong>. Later she<br />

and her husband Kevin, a<br />

fisherman, lived in Motunau<br />

near Greta Valley, and in<br />

Barrhill, Rakaia.<br />

Charles Upham serviced apartment resident Audrey with activities coordinator Jo Wix<br />

When her husband passed<br />

away, she couldn’t imagine<br />

living on her own in<br />

Barrhill, and was ready for<br />

a move. Audrey says she<br />

didn’t want to be aburden<br />

on her children and wanted<br />

to remain independent.<br />

She has six children, three<br />

daughters and three sons,<br />

living in <strong>Canterbury</strong> or in<br />

other parts of the world.<br />

It was her daughter Lynda<br />

that accompanied her to the<br />

gourmet lunch and tour date<br />

at Charles Upham and the<br />

rest, as they say, is history.<br />

That was 16 months ago.<br />

She now loves village<br />

life, being at home in her<br />

serviced apartment,and the<br />

opportunities she has to get<br />

out with family and friends.<br />

Originally, she had her car<br />

at the village, but now has<br />

given that away, and loves<br />

the trips out in the village<br />

van or with her daughters,<br />

sons and their families.<br />

While she has a stunning<br />

third-floor view of Mount<br />

Grey,inland from Amberley,<br />

and other <strong>North</strong><strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

features such as the Okuku<br />

Range, Audrey loves to get<br />

out and about toexperience<br />

the village community and<br />

to help others.<br />

“Everybody seems to get<br />

on well together and enjoy<br />

doing things together,<br />

which is what is so nice<br />

about here. Audrey says.<br />

Activities Coordinator<br />

Jo Wix said Audrey was<br />

forever helping other<br />

people, including staff, in<br />

the village. She had such<br />

a caring personality and<br />

that trait was shared byher<br />

children, Jo said.<br />

The village van had<br />

taken a trip to Motunau<br />

and Audrey’s daughter<br />

Jenny helped to take the<br />

residents out of the rain<br />

and into the village hall<br />

so they could continue<br />

with abeach picnic without<br />

getting wet.<br />

Audrey and many other<br />

village residents have<br />

enjoyed recent day trips<br />

to areas like Hawarden,<br />

Terrace Downs and<br />

Stoddart Cottage on<br />

Banks Peninsula. She has<br />

also regularly used the<br />

Charles Upham swimming<br />

pool and spa and enjoys<br />

watching the bowlers<br />

having a roll up on the<br />

village green.<br />

She enjoys Charles Upham’s<br />

library for reading. The<br />

other amenities include<br />

a gym, hair and beauty<br />

salon, bar, shop, movie<br />

theatre and café.<br />

delicious<br />

We invite youtocome in for ataste of village life<br />

Kaiapoi building to be finished in April<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

The new building under construction on<br />

the corner of Williams Street and<br />

Charles Street in Kaiapoi is due for<br />

completion in April.<br />

Work began on the two­level building<br />

last April.<br />

The building is designed by Kaiapoi<br />

architects DSC Group and is being built<br />

by Woodend company Paech<br />

Construction.<br />

More than half of the new 780 squaremetre<br />

building has already been leased<br />

to local law firm Corcoran French and<br />

real estate company One Agency, with<br />

another office under offer.<br />

The building has two office spaces<br />

upstairs and three of the four retail<br />

spaces at ground level are still available<br />

for lease. The remaining retail areas<br />

would be ideal for abakery or cafe/wine<br />

bar, and health and beauty or fashion<br />

retailers, according to the developers of<br />

the site, 137 Williams Street Ltd.<br />

The building has been designed to pay<br />

homage to the historical river town and<br />

complement the special location close<br />

to the Kaiapoi River.<br />

The new retail development across<br />

the road includes the Port and Eagle<br />

Brew Pub, Craze Fashion, Kaiapoi<br />

Florist and Gifts, Shoe Therapy, Shine<br />

Hairstylists, Nori Table Sushi Bar and<br />

R.W. Design.<br />

‘‘This area has become adestination<br />

for people in Kaiapoi and we want our<br />

building to contribute to that boutique<br />

environment,’’ the developers say.<br />

Under construction ... An artist’s<br />

impression of the new building taking shape<br />

on the corner of Williams Street and Charles<br />

Street, Kaiapoi. It is due for completion in<br />

April.<br />

PHOTO: SUPPLIED<br />

The building will feature high ceilings<br />

and large windows, which the<br />

developers say will provide awarm,<br />

light­filled, airy space with great views.<br />

The stud height of up to 4.5 metres in<br />

some of the retail areas is said by the<br />

developers to be exceptional for a<br />

building of this size.<br />

Acentral lift will ensure easy access<br />

and the building is also soundproofed,<br />

with double glazing and extensive<br />

insulation.<br />

‘‘Those yearswere very<br />

busy and hectic, with afulltime<br />

business and two young<br />

boys to bringup,’’ she says.<br />

‘‘Theonly creative work I<br />

did duringthoseyears was<br />

designing logos,labels,cards<br />

and brochures for the<br />

business.’’<br />

However, after 20 years,the<br />

couple sold the business and<br />

movedtoRangiora, where<br />

Karina turnedher attention<br />

back to art, and she began<br />

studying to become an art<br />

therapist.<br />

‘‘This workcalls for alot of<br />

courage to be brave enough to<br />

go into the deep and make the<br />

unseen seen,’’ she says.<br />

By working with her clients<br />
