Tractor’srevival acommunity affair

By RACHEL MACDONALD

It takesavillage to raise a

tractor. At least that’s the

experienceofAlex Mitchell

and his recently refurbished

1951David Brown

Cropmaster.

David Brownsaren’t

particularly rare. There were

manyaroundinthe ’50s, says

Alex, but he really wantedone

withadouble seat,sothat he

and his wife Karen could ride

side by side on atractorbuilt

for two.

‘‘The two­seater models

aren’tsocommon.They were

made so the driver could have

someone sitting beside them

to helpoperate the plough,for

example,’’ Alex says.

With the Cropmaster

delivered and taking pride of

place in the garage, it became

apparentthe body was tired

and the engine needed an

overhaul,although it didn’t

takemuch to start it. However,

the machine had issues.

‘‘There was waterinthe oil,

dirtinthe fuelsystem,and the

water pump didn’tjust leak, it

gushed,’’ Alex says.

‘‘I turnedtothe expertise of

knowledgeable locals with

different skills, who helped get

it tidied up, andlookingand

going like it doestoday.’’

The bodywork was pulled

off and the huntgot under way

for replacement parts.

‘‘I foundanother

Cropmaster in Nelson,and

one of the guystook atruck

and trailerupthere and

brought it down,’’ Alex says.

‘‘But whenitgot here, it

turnedout it was adifferent

model.Ithad ashorter

chassis,sonone of the tinwork

fitted, which was disappointing.And

the steering

wheel,whichIwas also after,

turnedout to be off acar.’’

Candidate spending released

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The six biggest spenders vying for the

mayoralty or aseat at the Waimakariri

District Council’s table had mixed

fortunes.

The council released details on

Tuesday of donations received by

candidates and their expenses from this

year’s local government election.

Top spender Dan Gordon spent

$37,295.85 on his successful bid for the

mayoralty, of which $20,985 was donated

in support of his campaign.

There was aspending limit of $40,000

for mayoral candidates in the district,

and $20,000 for candidates seeking a

council seat.

Unsuccessful mayoral contender

Oliver Sanderson spent $19.809.26,

while Robbie Brine spent $17,005 also in

an unsuccessful bid for the top job, but

he did win aseat at the council table in

the Rangiora­Ashley ward.

Two candidates, Wendy Doody

(Oxford­Ohoka ward) and Paul Williams

(Rangiora­Ashley ward), spent just over

$10,000 each on failed mayoralty bids,

but both were successful in being reelected

as councillors.

Phillip Redmond (Kaiapoi­Woodend

ward), spent $9226 in his successful bid

for aseat at the council.

Neville Atkinson, who has been

elected deputy mayor, spent ameagre

$399.14, to retain his council seat.

Six candidates did not spend acent.

Two gained aseat on acommunity

board, one failed to get elected to

council, and three failed to gain a

community board seat.

In the Hurunui District, where the

limit for expenditure in the mayoralty

race was $14,000, elected mayor Marie

Black spent $10,000.30 on signage,

advertising and delivering pamphlets.

Her deputy, Jason Fletcher, didn’t

spend anything.

Julia McLean, who came closest to Mrs

Black in the polls, spent $7849.37, of

which $2751.50 was donated. Dr Peggy

Burrows, the only other mayoral

candidate, spent $1800.

The vast majority of candidates for

seats around the council table and

Hanmer Springs Community Board did

not spend anything on their campaigns,

while the few that did spent well under

the limit of $3500 in the south and east

ward, and $7000 in the west ward.

‘‘It will also assist in

meeting the future energy

requirements of our

customers and play an

important role in New

Zealand’s journey towards

resilience and the reduction

of greenhouse carbon

dioxide emissions.’’

Pre­construction work

includes final civil and

electrical design work, as

well as planning for the

predator­free areas of

native shrub and forest

included in the 127 hectares

of land to be protected as

part of the project.

Mr Lester says MainPower

will be working with all

stakeholders in the coming

months, including

landowners, local

community, iwi and the

Department of Conservation

to finalise the

environmental and

construction management

plans.

The chairman of

MainPower’s board, Tony

King, says the project is

exciting for MainPower,

North Canterbury and New

Zealand.

‘‘The MainPower Trust,

board and executive team

have been working on this

for nearly two decades and

we are delighted to

announce this positive

investment decision,’’ he

says. Offtake arrangements

are expected to be finalised

by July 2020. An offtake

agreement is an

arrangement between a

producer and abuyer for the

sale of the produced goods

—inthis case, power.

Tired old tractor restored to former glory

From Page 1

However, its wheels, tyres, gauges,

switches and seats were useful.

The rest was on­sold and has been

transformed into auseable tractor, so

in trying to save the first Cropmaster,

two have now been rescued, Alex says.

‘‘A friend down the road helped

straighten and paintthe old body

panels, seeing as the new ones wouldn’t

fit.

‘‘And Vapor Blast Canterbury, in

Summerhill, cleaned up the fuel system

and some of the brasswork to better

than new.’’

The tractor’s first outing was to the

Rangiora Show in October.

Alex is now hoping to have agroup of

David Brown tractors from Cust —

there are several enthusiastic owners

in the village —head up to the Oxford

A&P Show in April next year to make a

day of it.

Milestone marks Waiau’srebirth

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Acelebration of community

and its response to nature have

been captured in asculpture in

Waiau’s Village Green.

UpstandingSculpture took

centre­stage at the opening of

the VillageGreen last Friday.

It is the Waiau community’s

response to the third

anniversary of the 2016

7.8­magnitude earthquake,

whichhad its epicentre close

to the NorthCanterbury town.

Sculpted by Aucklandartist

Rebecca Rose,the five

uprights represent people

bringing their uniquequalities

and standing together.

‘‘Therecycled hardwood

refers to the bridges and links

that have been and stillare

vitaltoWaiau’sexistence,’’

Rebecca said in adescription

sent to Waiau Residents

Association presidentSue

Galletly, who led the opening

ceremony.

‘‘Thestainless steel inserts

reflect the braided rivers of the

region and their constantly

changingpatterns.

‘‘This sculpture is asymbol

of humanity’s never­ending

dancewith its environment.’’

Sue saidthe communityhad

decided to put money toward

an art work for the Village

Greentoacknowledge the

quakejourney, rather than

hold another event

commemoratingthe significant

impact it had on the town, its

people and the district.

Two Waiau identities, Bruce

Forbes and DaveLott,cut the

ribbon on thesculpture.

They are typicalofmany in

the Waiau communitywho

have donated their time,

machineryand passion to

projects.

Others provided the final

push to keepprojectsalive for

thelocal committees,

organisations and stalwartsin

thecommunity who led them.

Thecelebration on the green

also included the Bruce Forest

Pathway, which links the old

jail to the historical corner of

theVillage Green,its museum,

thestoryboards, sculpture and

theAmuri Historical Society’s

newGig Shed, complete with

gigs and harness.

Thetown now sports anew

playcentre and swimming pool,

while its historic cob cottage is

under repair and theMemorial

Hall is getting aspruce­up.

Mrs Galletly toldthe

gathering it was difficult to

name all those involved in the

renewalofWaiau, and the bevy

of localorganisationsand

individuals,along with some

from outoftown who helped

fund community initiatives.

The physical buildings are

there for everyone to see.But it

has been the community’s

heart and soul,and local

contractors who justsought to

cover their costs, or lowered

their hourly rateaswellas

donating their time to support

projects, that have seen the

town rise abovethe forces that

left it reeling.

Achoir from the Waiau

School broughtChristmas

cheer to the celebration with

carols,alongwith the

Christmas shed with working

displays loaned by the Forbes

family,and which will be on

loan to the WaiauMuseum for

the enjoymentofall.

Top roles for Emily and Hugh

By RACHEL MACDONALD

EmilyTyrrelland Hugh Montgomerywent

through primary school together in Ohoka.

The pair have just been announced as next

year’s head girl and head boy at St Andrew’s

College in Christchurch.

Deputy head boy for2020,Omri Kepes, is

another NorthCantabrian,from Waipara.

Emilyand Hugh lay their leadership

opportunity firmly at the door of Ohoka School.

Hugh started at Ohoka in Year1,and Emily

joined the following year, when her family

returned to New Zealand fromoverseas.

They were in the same class several times,

and both alsoplayed touch rugbyfor Ohoka/

Mandeville.

‘‘We werepart of areally academic, sporty

and interactive year groupatOhoka, and the

school makes apoint of tryingtopush you

towards yourstrengths,’’ Emily says.

St Andrew’s College doesthe same,she says,

and the pairended up as junior schoolprefects

thereinYear 8. ‘‘I was alsohead of netball and

Hugh was headofrugby.’’

Hugh,who is alsosportyand enjoys playing

the piano and guitar, agreesthat Ohoka School

was crucial in his development.

‘‘Whether you were particularlygood at

something or not, Ohokagave us opportunities

and the courage to grabthem. Now, all thistime

down the track, I’m really excited to know what’s

ahead; whatnext year willhold,’’hesays.

Emily, who enjoys dancing, expectsittobe

pretty full on. She is the thirdgeneration of her

family to attendStAndrew’s,and has relatives

who were also headofcollege, some of whom

went through Ohoka School as well.

‘‘There will be pointsnext year wherewe’ll be

superbusy,jugglingsports, and cultural

activities,aswell as study, so timemanagement

is going to be apriority, but that’s all part of the

challenge.’’

They will know more about whatthe job

entails, they say,when they havemet withthe

school’s senior management team next year.

Amagical time of year

As we enter into the holiday season, I

wish to extend to you all best wishes for

aMerry Christmas and ahealthy, safe

and happy New Year.

It is atruly magical timeofyear, as

our community comes alive with

twinkling lights and decorations,Santa

parades, carol singingand the

spreadingof goodwill.

The Christmas Tree Festival in the

council foyer adds somethingspecial

each year.

Thisisits 13th year. Yet another

excellent display has beenmounted

this year. Thank you to the team that

put this together.

The Ashgrove SchoolSanta’s Grotto

was another excellent featurethis year.

The Christmas House, at 21 Queen

Street, Rangiora, and the Christmas

Wonderland at the Oxford Town Hall

are also well worth alook.

We are very lucky to have

organisations that organise festive

activities for our community each year.

Thankstoall those who go to such an

effort.

When you are looking to cross some

Nanda finds solace in helping others

By DAVID HILL

Helpingothersovercome tragedy has

changed Nanda Rammers’life.

The North Canterburyresident has

turned her life around by supporting

members of the Muslim community in

the wake of the March 15 terrorist

attacks in Christchurch, aftersuffering

abreakdown herself earlier this year.

NandaarrivedinNorth Canterbury

from the Netherlands in 2001 with her

husband and daughter, and ‘‘three

suitcases and no keys’’.

She trainedininterior design,

started her own business in 2008 and

beganteachingatthe Ara Instituteof

Canterbury 2 1 ⁄2 years ago.

One of her colleagues was in the

Linwood mosque when the shooting

occurred and he returned to Ara while

it was still locked down. ‘‘I will never

forget the look on his face.’’

Nandawantedtohelp the widows,

but her workloadwas takingits toll and

she fellsick soonafter. ‘‘That was the

turning pointinmylife.Istarted to do

yogaand meditating.’’

Whenshe eventually returned to

workatAra, shebegan organising a

‘‘pamper day for about 80 happy ladies’’

at the campus marae in September.

‘‘Wegot all sorts of people on board,

fromthe health and beauty school at

Ara and we got agrant from the

Christchurch City Council for the food.

‘‘Itwas an incredible day, with a

happy focus and everybody was ableto

connectagain.’’

It was such asuccess thatasecond

pamper day was organised lastmonth.

She is now planning awellbeing dayfor

the men.

‘‘Traumawill staywith you forthe

restofyour lifeifyou don’t address it.’’

Nanda says she has madenew

friends and established ‘‘a totally new

network out of theexperience’’.

One Muslim family evenadopted her

as partoftheirfamily. ‘‘It has been

extremelyrewarding. It puts thingsin

yourown life in perspective.’’

Being amigrant herself, Nanda says

she can relatetothe challenges faced

by the Muslimcommunity in adapting

to anew country.

‘‘I think it is quite abig thing.Iknow

how hard it is to come into acountry

and start again.

‘‘You are coming into acountrythat

you think of as western, but it’s not a

Europeancountry.’’

The Loburn resident says new

migrantsface the challengeof

adjusting to a‘‘new culture and

mindset, to make yourselfathome and

feelthat you belong here’’.

For the Muslimcommunity, there is

the added challengeofpreconceived

views held by some.

International VolunteerDay was

celebrated on December 5and this

year’s focuswas on promoting

inclusion, diversityand nondiscrimination.

Hunting and fishing continues to play a

huge roleinJames Morris’s life.

His wifeAnna also enjoysboth pursuits

and the couple had theirfirst date 12 years

ago on ahunting trip.

Jamesalso proposed to Anna on a

hunting trip.Now they have theirown

hunting and fishing storeinRangiora, as

the newowners of North Canterbury

Rivers to Ranges, formerlyHamills

Fishing and Hunting Specialists at 98 High

St. Negotiations to buy Hamills has takena

couple of years, with Jamesand Anna

taking overthe business in mid­October.

‘‘I have beenworking on the family

sheepfarm, Berriedale,which is local to

Amberley,for the past 10 years,’’ James

says.‘‘Unfortunately, unforeseen health

problems in the family changedthe longterm

plans,soweset about lookingfor

another opportunity.’’

That occurred whenJames was in

Hastingsonahunt with friend and Rivers

To Rangesshop owner Jeremy Hanaray.

The two men talkedabout expanding

Jeremy’s trademarked name of Riversto

Ranges to theSouth Island.

When Jamesreturned home, he

discussed the idea with Anna.‘‘Shewas

quiteexcitedaboutthe prospect of

operatingour own business and things

progressed from there,’’James says.

Anna,James and their two­year­oldson

Harrystill liveonthe familyfarm,20

minutes’ drive from theirnew Rangiora

business. ‘‘Harry is the fifth generation

Morris on Berriedale,whichhas been in

the family for over90years,’’ James says.

‘‘He loves coming out hunting withus.’’

Growing up on the farm, Jamesalways

spentalot of timeoutdoors, but hunting

and fishing was always his main focus.

‘‘We had holidays in the Marlborough

Sounds where my brothers and Icaught

our dailydinners freshfrom the ocean,

and Ishot my firstdeerwhen Iwas 12 years

old.’’

James has hunted nationwide, in

Australia and Europe, but says nothing

beatsbeinginthe Canterbury high

country, especially above the bushline.

‘‘We are lucky in Canterbury withthe

opportunitieswehave to freely hunt and

fish,’’ James says.

He has huntedcommerciallyover the

years and has been registered to supply

animals to the pet foodindustry for more

than 10 years. ‘‘I havesupplied Canterbury

Pet foods with rabbitsand hares as well as

spending winters catching possumslocally

for their fur and to help keep the area TB

(tuberculosis) free.’’

For the last12years he has also been

writing abouthis hunting adventures in

Rod and Rifle magazine, and in 2012 he

published abook called Student Hunter,

about his hunting exploits as aUniversity

of Canterbury student.

Anna and James intendtodevelop North

Canterbury RiverstoRanges into ashop

that offers advice and servicetothe

community. ‘‘We offergunsmithing, sightins

of rifles and havestarted buying

possumfur. We are humbled by the

support we have received fromthe locals,

and are really enjoying the socialaspect of

our new venture, which is very different

from farming.’’

involved in training to compete in it, as

individualsorinteams,toprovide abreak from

the pressures of farm life, and also raise funds

Home crowd proves alure for Tim

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Canterbury’s Te Mania Angus Rodeo is

special for cowboy Tim Costello.

It is his local rodeo, and this year he

will have his own bucking horses at the

event for the first time, which makes it

extra special.

The rodeo is at the Mandeville Sports

Centre, on Saturday, January 4, with the

gates opening at 10.30am. The main

events start at 11am with the bronc

bareback riding,

Tim, who hails from Hawarden in

North Canterbury, says being able to

compete in front of ahome crowd is also

great.

‘‘There is usually some extra support

cheering you on and makes you want to

try extra hard,’’ he says.

Tim, asaddle bronc rider, spent June

and July in Canada competing in the

Saskatchewan­based rodeo association,

known as the Canadian Cowboys

Association.

He returned for three weeks in

October to compete in the finals,

finishing the season 5th in the standings.

Earlier in the year Tim and fellow

rodeo competitor William Jamison

broke the mould of the traditional

rodeo, organising afast­paced rodeo

with invited riders at the Hawarden

A&P Show. It was so successful it

appears it will become afeature of other

shows in the future.

They were aiming at quality

competitors and bucking stock, and a

short show that kept the crowd

entertained.

They kept it to Roughstock events —

Barrel racer ... Fourteen­year­old Kaylee Hood in action.

bareback, saddle bronc and bull­riding.

Meanwhile, 14­year­old Kaylee Hood

loves the challenge of barrel racing at

rodeos and is looking forward to doing

well on the circuit over the summer.

Kaylee, from Rolleston College, will

compete at the Mandeville event.

She was amember of the New Zealand

High School Rodeo team that competed

in the trans­Tasman competition in New

Zealand in February and Australia in

August.

She says it’s agreat experience

competing in Australia, particularly as

riders have to get to know someone

else’s horse quickly.

‘‘Your mount is drawn out of ahat.

You have to quickly change your riding

style. Some go adifferent side first,

others need to be pushed hard to keep

them going, others you have to hold

back,’’ she says.

But she loves nothing better than

competing on her own horse, Fraser.

‘‘He is my favourite, Ihave had him for

three to four years,’’ says Kaylee, who

has placed consistently on him.

Last year she finished fifth at the

Canterbury rodeo.

Rodeo pursuits are afamily affair,

with mum having taken part in barrel

racing and her dad, team roping —a

sport that takes them to the North Island

and to the deep south.

While activities in the ring will

provide much of the entertainment,

there is plenty to keep everyone

entertained and well fed outside.

There will be alolly scramble, a

bouncy castle, helicopter rides, food and

bar facilities.

Gate Prices: Adults $25, Children $10,

Family $60. The Mandeville Sports

Centre will be signposted from the

motorway, north of Christchurch.

In the saddle ... Tim Costello is looking

forward to Canterbury’s Te Mania Angus

Rodeo early next year.

Tracks await holidaymakers

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The Ashley Gorge track systemisreadyto

go for this holiday season.

The hour­long Loopand the 2 1 ⁄2­hour

Waterfall tracksare finished, and can be

enjoyedbyfamilies of all ages.

The loop track has examples of matai,

black beech, kanuka and broad leaf,with

rest stops along the way.

The waterfall track climbs through

bush to aplains­to­oceanlookout before

sidlinginto a15metre waterfall.Both

begin and end at the Ashley Gorge

Reserveand HolidayPark, where there

are toilets, picnic facilities,swimming

holes, anew pavilion and the holiday

park shop.

John Burton, who alongwith Dave

Shelford has managed the four­year

development of Stage 1and Stage 2ofthe

Ashley Gorge Tracks Project, says visitor

numberstoAshley Gorge are increasing.

The two new walksare proving so

popularthat acounter is about to be

installed by the Department of

Conservation (DOC) to get some statistics

on usage.

Akiosk, built by the Oxford Men's Shed,

has avisitorsbook which shows

hundreds of people fromall over the

world are walking the tracks.

The Oxford Men's Shed is building a

bird hide on the Loop Track to allow

people to observe native birds attracted

to abird feederatclose quarters.

Mr Burton says the community, DOC,

and the WaimakaririDistrict Council

have all pulled together to help produce

the walks along with the help of the

Rangiora­based Squadron 88 Air Cadets.

‘‘We'vejust completed the last of about

4000 volunteer hours of working bees by

puttingin140 stepstomake the Waterfall

Track accessible to most ages and

abilities,’’MrBurton says.

‘‘This is typicalofthe win­win results

you get from acommunity projectlike

this where young peoplegain from the

experienceofworking hard to produce

something of real and lastingbenefit to

their community and whichthey will

always then be apart of.’’

Awonderland for wildlife

By SHELLEY TOPP

The Northbrook Wetlands

Reserve is one of Rangiora’s

mostpicturesque parklands.

However, it wasn’t alwaysthis

way.During the mid­1800s it

was the site of early European

industry, with flax mills, a

brewery, fellmongery and a

tannery along the Northbrook

Stream.

In the 1930sasewage system

was established in the area and

remainedthere for more than

40 years.

The Waimakariri District

Council­owned reserveand

stormwater treatmentarea is

close to the Rangiora central

businessdistrict, with access on

Cotter Lane,off Northbrook

Road.

In recent years, restoration

work has transformed the

reserve into apeople­friendly

area which is home to awide

range of wildlife, including

paradiseshelducks,scaups,

black swans, snails,insects,

eels, kingfishers, bellbirds,

fantailsand manyother birds.

There is an easy 1.5km walk

around the reserve, with places

to sit or picnic alongthe way.

Several informationboards

outline the history of the area

and the visitorrules.

Dogs are not allowed in the

reserve.‘‘As part of recreating a

healthy stream environment, we

hope to attract wetlandbirdlife

back into the area.Soplease no

dogs,’’ one of the noticeboards

states.

Feeding the ducks is also

banned: ‘‘We wanttoencourage

native wildlife to feed and breed

here, not introduced mallard

ducks.’’

The reserve is aspecialplace

to visit over the Christmas/New

Year holidays, or any time,for a

quiet stroll, apicnic,arun, or to

observe the birdlife.

If you are travelling there by

car, don’t stay latebecause the

gates are lockedatnight and

there is a$50 charge to unlock

themtoget your car out.

Visitorstothe reserveare also

toldvia asign that ‘‘60 percent

of Rangiora’s stormwater enters

the reserve via the Northbrook

Stream and adrain. There is so

muchlife heresoplease do not

put toxicchemicals down the

drain because thisiswhere they

end up.’’

Pets at risk

at Christmas

Animal ownersare being urged

to be vigilant over what their

pets eat thisChristmas.

The SPCA saysowners should

not share human foodwith their

pets,and should think twice

aboutleaving foodinplaces that

mightbeeasily accessible to

pets.

‘‘Many common treatsand

snacks we humansenjoy as part

of our holiday celebration –

including avocado, macadamia

nuts,ham, grapes and raisins –

can cause internal damageand,

in serious cases, leadtodeath,’’

SPCA chief executive Andrea

Midgen says.

‘‘It is important to know that

ignoring your pets’pleading

facesand smooches is actually

in theirbest interest.’’

Even pet owners who are

careful aboutwhat theyfeed

theirpet need to be awareabout

the places theirpet mightfind a

feast, such as in handbags, on

tables, or in rubbish bags.

Chocolate is particularly

dangerous for dogsand cats

because it can causeelevated

heartrate, seizures vomiting

and diarrhoea, but other festive

foodsare also toxictopets.

Theseincludefruitcake or

Christmas pudding as the

raisins (andgrapes) are toxicto

the kidneysofcats and dogs.

Alcohol, caffeine, macadamia

nuts,onions, chives, pits and

seedsofpeaches, plums,

persimmons and apples, are

Competitive edge ... Megan Edwards is going places in Frisbee sports.

PHOTO: SUPPLIED

Megan ahigh flyer

in world of Frisbees

By LINDSAY KERR

As Megan Edwards neared the end of

her local schooling at Rangiora High

School in 2015, little did she know that

her sporting world was about to

dramatically change with an

introduction by brother Scott into the

world of Ultimate Frisbee.

Her latest achievement will see her

jet off to the world championships in

the Netherlands next year as part of

the New Zealand women’s open team.

Megan's first introduction into her

new sport was met with instant

approval.

Prior to that, her sporting pursuits

had been adiet of the more traditional

kind —tennis, football, netball and

basketball.

Ultimate Frisbee is aphysically

demanding game for the fit and robust.

It has 18 players per team, with

about 25 teams registered nationally,

involving around 500 people.

Apart from the throwing of afrisbee

among friends at picnics and outdoor

social occasions, the thought of

engaging in acompetitive situation

that involved the Frisbee had never

entered Megan's head.

Success in the sport was almost

immediate. She was selected for a

New Zealand under­20 side to play in

the 2016 world junior championships

in Poland.

In the same year she won the

Rangiora High senior tennis title and

received an oak award from the school

for her sporting achievements.

The adventure to Poland netted a

sixth place for the New Zealand side,

along with avictory over Australia.

Although then attending Massey

University, Megan played for her

victorious Christchurch club side, the

Chicks, at the 2017 national

championships.

This victory entitled them to attend

the 2018 world club championship in

Cincinnati, atournament where they

emerged with the team spirit award.

Megan, for her part at the 2018 local

mixed nationals, won the Female Most

Valuable Player (MVP) Award.

In 2019, she won the women's MVP at

the mixed nationals and attended the

under­24 world championships in

Heidelberg, Germany.

The climax came after being

selected for the New Zealand women’s

open team to contest the world

championships.

Being aminor sport on the New

Zealand scene, overseas competition

is costly for competitors, who must

largely front up with their own

funds.

Sustainability move praised

Kaiapoi Preschool has been rewarded

for rethinking how it looks after the

environment.

Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon was

on hand to congratulate the preschool

for being the first school or preschool to

complete the first stage in its ‘‘rethink

journey’’, offered by Eco Educate.

‘‘I think it’s afantastic initiative. It’s

really easy to do and it’s tailored to suit

an individual school or early learning

centre,’’ Mr Gordon said.

‘‘It’s important that we all learn about

sustainability. Ifind Ilearn alot from my

nephew and niece, who come home and

see what Uncle Dan isn’t doing and is

now doing.’’

Eco Educate rethink educator Lesley

Ottey said it took eight years to develop

the ‘‘rethink’’ initiative, so it was

pleasing the see the first school/

preschool achieve the first step.

It was developed as an alternative to

the Enviro schools programme, with

schools able to decide how they want to

progress.

‘‘It’s ajourney of sustainability and

rethinking,’’ she says.

‘‘The centre decides how they want to

do it. We didn’t want it to be abox­ticking

exercise.’’

The initiative began as apilot project

of 10 schools and preschools in the

Waimakariri district, with another 14

signalling they want to get involved.

Kaiapoi Preschool received a

certificate, seeds and abook to

acknowledge its achievement.


STRAWBERRY FAIR, KAIAPOI

30 The North Canterbury News, December 19, 2019

Sweet strawberries get their day in the sun

By SHELLEY TOPP

Strawberry lovers

packed into the Kaiapoi

Food Forest last

Saturday afternoon to

feast on their favourite

summer fruit at the

inaugural Strawberry

Fair.

It was afamilyfriendly,

strawberrythemed

day, with picnics

and dancing on the lawn

to live music played by

the Garden City Big

Band.

The fair also proved

positive for stallholders

selling strawberrythemed

products, with all

the fresh strawberries

selling out and food

retailers —selling baked

goods such as cakes,

scones and cupcakes —

also emptying their

stalls.

The fair was also the

first Zero Waste event in

the Waimakariri District.

‘‘The theme was

perfect for the Kaiapoi

Food Forest as we are

showing how to grow food

sustainably, so having a

Zero Waste event was a

perfect fit,’’ food forest

trustee Brent Cairns

said.

‘‘We had Lesley Ottey

from EcoEducate guide

us how we could make

the event work well and

the retailers were right

behind the idea.’’

Muffin made in heaven ... Charlotte Johnson with a

Locallygrownstrawberriesand peas

couldbemissing from theChristmas

dinner menu.

NorthCanterbury growerCam Booker,

who is preparing for the7th annualSefton

Christmas Harvest Marketonhis farm

near Rangiora,said Christmas

strawberries, raspberries andpeas were

in shortsupply.

He says therewill be no homegrown

strawberriesonthe Booker family

Christmas dinner tablethis year.

“It was coldand slow growing in the

spring andnow it's hot anddry all of a

sudden, but we were lucky to havemissed

the hail,” he says.

“We've gotnostrawberriesatthe

moment.

‘‘Thewarmweather broughtthem on

earlyand then the birds have eaten them

all.”

The Bookers grow strawberriesall year

roundand have wonrecognition in past

Farmers'Market Awards.

“Wedon't usuallyhave aheap of

strawberriesatthistimeofthe year

anyway, as we are generally at the low

end of the production curve,but normally

once we havestrawberries, we usually

have themuntilJune or July.” His next

crop of strawberriesisnotdue to ripen

untillate January or early February.

Mr Booker sayspeasripeningearly

appear to be acommon problem for

growers in North Canterbury.

“Onlyamonth ago we were thinking

they weregoingtobelate,sothat'show

quickly it's changed.”

But thereare plenty of freshpotatoes

and the early birds whoarrive at the

harvestmarket between 8am and 9amwill

get to dig theirown Christmasspuds fora

Sefton School PTA. Entry is agold coin

donation after 9am.

“We havequite afew (Sefton School)

parents giving us ahandonthe daywith

Mr Booker says, despite the challenges,

just about everythingelsefor the

Therewill be anythingfrom turkeys,

ducks, hams,wine,cherries, freshbread,

Aftersix yearsofrunning themarket on

Weather achallenge

By DAVID HILL

Pricesare good, butthe latestseasonhas

had its challenges for North Canterbury

farmers.

Federated FarmersNorth Canterbury

president Cameron Henderson says strong

prices aregiving farmers plenty of

confidence,but achillyspring and adry

start to summer have set production back

thisseason.

“It's had some challenges.

‘‘After awet and coldOctober which

slowed growth down, we had anormal

November until the wind in the last week

of the month whichknocked afew people

around.

“It'sbeen atough two weeks since then

and it willtake acoupleofweekstocatch

up, but it couldbeworse.”

But Mr Hendersonsays adecentamount

of rain before Christmaswill put farmers

back on track.

Milk productionisdown compared to

the same periodlast year, but there is still

timetocatch up.

And with Fonterra'smid­range farmgate

milk priceforecast of $7.05 and low

interest rates, it is “hardtocomplain, aside

fromafew weather hiccups”.

“Theeconomics of farming are pretty

goodatthe moment,” he says.

New regulations are stillcreating

headachesand theclimate­change debate

has “only really just started”, but at least

Federated Farmersand other

organisations are part of the conversation

withthe government, Mr Hendersonsays.

“We are certainly not going to get the

perfect outcome, but hopefully we will get

morereason and less politics.”

He is optimistic Canterbury's progressin

the freshwater space,comparedtoother

regions, will mean few changes for local

farmerswhennew legislation is

introduced.

“Thefencing off of waterways and alot

of the things thatare in theproposals,we

are already doing and probably doing it

better than whatthe nationalstandards

are.

“The best thing the government coulddo

in Canterbury is leave us alone to get on

with it.

‘‘Farmers,local councilsand the wider

community have put ahuge amount of

effort in through the zone committees.

“And it's not just councils telling us what

to do, it's communities realising whatthey

need to do and that includes farmers.”

Mr Henderson is also the Waimakariri

Zone Committeevice­chairman.

The zone committee is now turning its

attention to local catchment plans, with

localpeople collaborating at alocal

catchment leveland going beyond the

regulations, “andIthinkthere is alot of

valuetobehad out of that”.

“I can certainly see value in setting a

nationalvision and astrategicdirection,

but in terms of setting one strictgoal for

the whole country, they are quickly

learninghow difficultthat can be because

of our diverse river systems.

“EveninCanterbury there is diversity

between the large alpine,braided rivers

and the catchmentsinthe lowland, springfed

rivers, and we have ahuge diversityof

soil types.”

Sheep industry in good heart

Recent ram fair pricesmight not reflect it,

but the sheep industry is in agood space.

Livestock industryrepresentatives

spoken to by the North Canterbury News

say the industry is strong on the back of

healthy lamb and mutton prices.

RuralLivestock Canterburylivestock

manager DonaldCooke says, aside from

the woolprice,the industry is “in the best

placeit's beeninalong time”.

This season’s ram sales producedsome

mixedresults, with goodrams sellingfor as

little as $1000and several “beingpassed

on”.

“Whenyou considerfarmersare getting

$150 to $180 for aprime lamb, the rams are

pretty cheap,”MrCooke says. “Theold

rule of thumb was 10 lambstoaram, but

youcan pick up agoodram for $1000.”

Several ramsfetched at least $2500at

salesthroughout the region,while the

Stevensonfamily, of Cheviot, paid arecord

$17,500 “for atruly exceptional” Dorset

Down ram, he says.

Two rams sold for morethan $10,000 at

last month'sCanterbury A&P Association


Staff and Management would like to wish you avery Merry Christmas

and Happy New Year.




ram fair, but one­third of the 200 rams put

up for sale wereleft unsold.

PGG Wrightson upperSouth Island

genetics representative Simon Eddington

attributed it to relatively low ewe numbers

on farms followingland­usechanges over

the last20years.

On­farm store lambsales are also

producing mixed results, with the farmers

who hostedsales earlyon“being wellrewarded”,

Mr Cooke says.

“The prime stock is sellingvery well, but

we've seen abit of acorrection in the store

lamb sales, with the dry conditions and the

high river levels impactingonprices over

the last couple of weeks.”

Hazlett Rurallivestockgeneral manager

Ed Marfell saysthe primelamb market is

“riding abit of awave fromthe demandfor

protein in Asia”.

“Nothing lasts forever, so we have to

make the most of it while we can andput

abit away. And justenjoythe ride.”

Mr Cookeanticipates the region's ewe

fairs,beginning at Hawarden nextmonth,

will be strong.

Eight-wicket win keeps

Southbrook in touch

CRICKET

Southbrook thumped Weedons by

eight wickets last weekend to

keepintouch with the

competition leadersinthe CRV

Ambreed Country Premier One

Day competition.

Southbrook’s Sam Ermerins

and Arafat Bhuiyan were

imposing with the new ballonthe

Southbrook Park pitch.They

knocked off Weedons’ quality top

order beforeDarrynBoylerattled

throughthe middleorder.

Limping to 132 all out in 40

overs, it was nevergoing to be

enough and Southbrook coasted

home, largelythanks to an

impressive unbeaten 93 by Matt

Boyle, whose innings included 17

fours and two sixes,and came off

just65balls.

Contestleaders

Leeston­Southbridge can relax

overthe festivebreak at the top of

Harry Chamberlain’s fine

season continued with amatchdefining,

run­a­ball 62 at Lincoln

Domain on Saturday.

It was the dominant inningsin

Leeston­Southbridge’s

accumulation of 184/9 in the

side’s allotted 45 overs.

Chamberlain, who enjoyed a

500­run off­season playingin

Darwin, was again in the game

with the ball, grabbingkey toporderwicketsand

helping reduce

Lincoln to 34/3 in its chase.

Middle­order batsman Liam

victory, withafine 51 off 89 balls.

Afterhewas dismissed, thetail

wagged valiantly, but the

defending champions held their

nervetosecure a10­run win, as

Lincoln stalled at 174/9 after 45

overs.

Knock of 165

Astunning, mammoth innings

of 165 from Rhys Mariulifted

Oxford­Rangiora to asuperb

26­run win overCheviot on

Saturday.

Mariu, fresh from being named

in the 15­man New Zealand

under­19 squad to competein

next year’s Cricket WorldCup in

SouthAfricainJanuary­

February, was ruthless in

demolishing the Magpies’ attack.

Oxford­Rangiora made an

imposing 279/5 in its 45 overs and

wouldprove too many for Cheviot

to chase, despite agood knock

from Ben Hartland.

Jack Waghorn ripped through

Cheviot’s middle­order,snaring

sevenwickets to help complete

the strong victory.

Sefton got back to winning form

with afine team performance in

beating Darfield by 37 runs.

Eight batsmen in double

figures, led by aquick­fire 40 from

Canterbury paceman Fraser

Sheat battingatNo. 4, saw the

Seals post 202 all out.

Zak Foulkes (55runs off 74

balls) and Tim Boyle (52 off 69) got

the chaseoff to aflying start,

hoisting Darfield to a

commanding 115/1 in 24 overs.

But when they both fellinquick

succession, Darfield crumpled to

be all out for 165, with BarryCross
