Years on,

love still

triumphs

By RACHEL MACDONALD

It is a60­yearlove affair that

has spanned threecountries

and an impressive collection of

Triumph motorcycles.

And it was celebrated in style

last week, when Peter and

JanetCornelius markedtheir

diamond wedding anniversary

in Rangiora.

Theirdaughter, Sue,who

stayed in England when they

emigrated to New Zealand in

1993,describes them as

‘‘amazing people’’.

‘‘Mumwas born in Adelaide.

Her mother was English, but

went to Australia after livingin

India. Dad was born here,in

Plymouth,’’she says.

In fact, Peter still hasvivid

memories of beingtaken to

schoolwith his gasmask over

his shoulderinWorld War 2,

beforehewas evacuated

altogether.Air raids later

demolished his home.

‘‘Dad joinedthe RAF and

ended up in South Australia in

1957, as an electrical engineer

on the teamdeveloping the

British atomic bomb.

‘‘While he was there, he went

out withthe lads, as you do, and

they met agroup of nurses. One

of those was mum,’’ Sue says.

Peter continues: ‘‘When they

asked for volunteers, Ihad no

idea what it was for,but Iknew

my granddad had enjoyed

Australia when he was

seconded there from the Royal

Marines, so it seemed agood

idea at the time.’’

Twenty years on,the couple

rhododendrons are being

relocated to WestMelton

wherenew owners Lisa and

Lisa and Stephen are keen

gardeners with abroad

knowledge in horticulture and

agriculture.

Marina saysRhodoDirect

because 90 percentofits

Hurunui district, it needs to

move closer to freight firms in

Alittle muscle car magic

By SHELLEY TOPP

Muscle Car Madness roared into

Rangiora last week,with many

participants arrivingonTuesday

for theannualweekendevent.

It was the 30thanniversary of the

popular motor show and organiser

CraigStare,ofRolleston, said it was

the biggestyet.

‘‘Close on 1000 cars came fromall

over New Zealand forthe whole

eventand another 800 cars arrived

on Saturday.’’

The event,which began with only

44 cars on display30years ago,has

grownbeyond his wildest

expectations.

He initially thought the event

wouldlast ayear or two, but it has

been growing eversince, with the

Rangiora Showgroundsvenue

‘‘burstingatthe seams’’ to cope.

‘‘We had 2500people camping

here this year, 750 morethan last

year,’’ he said.

New amenities installed to cope

with the influxwere popular, but

Craigdoesn’t want the eventtogrow

much bigger. ‘‘Wemay have to

impose limitsifitdoes.’’

He says it is difficult to estimate

how muchmoney Muscle Car

Madness bringstothe district

annually, but he believes it could be

as muchas$3 million to $4m.

Craighas made manyfriends

during his 30 years organisingthe

event, whichdrawsvisitors from all

around New Zealand and overseas.

‘‘So manypeopleenjoy the event

because it is so totally different to

anything else in New Zealand.

‘‘It is like one big family.’’

Even overseasvisitors such as

Colorado musicians Mad Dog Mike

and Mark Verschoor, who are

membersofthe Hillbilly Hellcats,

who performed at the event for the

second time, say it is one of their

favourite motorshows. ‘‘It’s where

we havethe most fun.’’

Visit by Chinese students postponed

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The brakes have been put on avisit to

the Hurunui district by 21 Chinese

students following the coronavirus

outbreak.

The students were due to land at

Christchurch Airport this Sunday.

Hurunui Mayor Marie Black says the

visit has been postponed, not cancelled.

‘‘I feel relieved that commonsense is

the winner. The timing is just not

right.’’

The trip follows the forging of asister

relationship in 2016 with the Changping

district in Beijing and the Hurunui

District Council.

Mrs Black said the decision to

postpone the trip was made by the

director of education in China.

She said the itinerary included time

at the Amberley, Waipara, Hurunui

College and Amuri Area schools, avisit

to asheep and beef farm to look at fibre

and food production, to Gore Bay for

fish and chips on the beach, to St James

Conservation Park to star gaze, and

stopovers at adairy farm, and flower

and vegetable gardens.

‘‘It was designed to be alearning

experience, not aholiday, and to give

the students an insight into food

production,’’ Mrs Blacks says.

Consultation on putting a

The concept plan follows

several yearsofdebate

around replacing the ageing

Whilethere is someconcern

‘‘I was 18 at thetime,doing my

BakerAg has given afigure of $2.4 million

to $3.4m per farm.

This is on top of Dairy NZ’s study

revealingthat these proposalscould

result in a$6billion fall in our gross

domesticproduct (GDP) by 2050and

significantlyreduce our competitiveness.

Thesechanges have the potential to

reduce theGDP of Marlborough by 3.2

percent by 2050, meaning fewer jobs and

revenue for the community.

The Minister for the Environment does

not seemtounderstand that fencing to

keep stockout of waterwaysiscostlier on

hill country. There are also extra costsfor

establishing otherwatersupplies.

This lack of understandingclearly

stems fromthe Government’s cynical

consultationprocess for its freshwater

proposals, whichlacked proper process

andfailed to engagethe farming sector.

Thegovernment should heed these

warningsprovided by Beef and Lamband

reassess its estimates to ensure theyhave

notgrossly underestimated costs. They

also need to justify that theyare not

asking farmers to do more thanwhat is

neededtomanage risks.

These proposals will put shackles on

theability of farmerstoinnovate and will

heap costsonasector already facing

historically low confidence.

Beef and sheepfarmersshouldn’t be

adversely affectedwith highcosts of

fencing off thousands of kilometres of

landfor little environmental benefit.

We all want better freshwateroutcomes

but we have to back farmersto

farmtheir way to betteroutcomes, as they

havebeen doing. Farmersmust see a

pathtoimprovewhile beingprofitable.

Our rural communitiesand economic

wealth as acountrydepends on it.

Vigilance is essential

February is typically dry, and Iask that

you all take extraprecautions against

fire.

We are witnessing first­hand the

impactofdry conditionsinAustralia. We

must all be vigilant and keep the risk to a

minimum.

Water reliability is critical at present.

Community informationcan be found on

the Hurunui District Council website.

There are regularupdates to keep

residents informed overpossible

restrictions that may applytowater

sources.

How dishearteningitwas to hear that

our preciouspounamu was ripped from

its plinth in the grounds of the Hanmer

Springs Pool and Spa, followed by delight

over the newsthat it had beenretrieved.

Iamgrateful for the excellent police

work, but am also thankful that over the

past few years our local Lionsgroups

have partnered withpolice to install

securitycameras.

This collaboration has certainly

provided aworthy asset that helpskeep

our community safe.

The council is hosting pool parties,

with the datesadvertised on its Facebook

page.They are also awonderful way to

engage with the local council as

representatives from the community

team will be present.

Our future rests on going with the flow

Residents of thelower

(southern) Hurunui, what is

yourmajorlong­termconcern?

Apotableguaranteed supply

of domestic water?

The southern hemispherehas

amaritimeclimate, influenced

by airflow fromthe oceans.All

theevaporation is circulating

fromthe west, hitting the

Southern Alps, whereitis

forced to dump water, fallingas

heavyrain or snow,every

season.

Given we have thisbuilt­in

water factory, why is it that we

allow it to go to waste while

putting up with water

restrictions in many townships,

includingAmberley?

As Iwrite this,the

thermometerreads 30degrees

Celsius. You will note that

willows and poplars are already

water stressed.

NorthCanterbury’s futureprosperity comesdown to one central issue,suggests

John McCaskey: The savvy managementour waterresources.

Today, thousands of hectares

of pine forest will be joining the

weed­willows, and transpire

millions of litres of water that

once ran down the Waipara

Riverand WekaStream —both

nowaslowasIhaveeverseen

them.

Alot of thefault liesinthe

demise of the catchment and

conservation boards, which

have been confined to the scrap

heap,along withmorethan 100

yearsofrecordsand

institutional knowledge.

Drillingmorewells, and

deeper ones, is afool’serrand,

especiallywhenthey penetrate

belowsea­level, as is takingrunof­the­river

waterwhen only

70km fromAmberley there is

LakeSumner—amountain­fed,

unpollutedlake, the damming of

which has been talked about for

three generations as North

Canterbury’s source of liquid

gold.

Idid an exercisebased on one

24 hour spillover into Lake

Sumner. If dammed,the lake

would have risen4metres on

January 17,which,usingthe

existingGlenmarkIrrigation

schemeparameters, wouldhave

beenenough to irrigate 18,900

hectares forawhole year,while

generatingelectricity and

supplyingdomestic water.

TherailwaytoGreymouth was

to be builtpastthe south sideof

LakeSumnerin1880 by useof

pickand shovel and horse and

cart. Sowhy,withthe powerful

machinery of today, aren’t we

bringing water from Lake

Sumner down all thevalleys

through enormous pipes to

towns and farms? It could be

usedbythe viticulturaland

horticultural industries, while

alsogeneratingpower.

Whywould anyone in their

right mind consider wind

power?

Ihave spent timeina

windmillconstruction areain

Scotlandand noted hundredsof

theseinHolland, Denmark, and

Germany, where topography

makes hydro impracticable.

Wind turbines are mechanical

beasts that wear out, catch fire

and play merryhell with the

ecology.

So whyisMainPower,of

whichweare shareholders,

proposing to build 22 wind

turbines across the skyscape of

Mt Cass?

Will they raise the

productivity of our part of North

Canterburysouth of the

Hurunui River? No. Will our

powerbecheaper?No.

So whatisthe answer? My

father is longgone. I’ll be gone

before it happens —but the

futureofthis areaiswater.

Allclimate predictionspoint

to rain in thewest,and

increasingly dry conditionsin

theeast.

Simply put, this meansthat

theSouthern Alpsand its

future.

So whyisMainPower tilting at

SILVERSTREAM HEALTH HUB

The North Canterbury News, January 30, 2020

9

Friendly service ... Pharmacy technician Sophie Light,

left, and pharmacist Elena Rimbovska.

Welcoming ... Silverstream Medical Centre offers a

comprehensive health service for patientsatall stagesoflife.

Wide skill base ... Physiotherapist Teresa Hoult demonstrates

hands­ontreatment on colleagueBrittany Peacock.

Hub offers diverse health services

Awide range of health and

wellness services in a

convenient one­stop location

caters not only for residents of

the Silverstream subdivision

where it is located, but also for

people in Kaiapoi and

surrounding areas, including

Christchurch’s northern

suburbs.

At the heart of this ‘‘health

hub’’ is the Silverstream

Medical Centre, which provides

comprehensive health services

for patients at all stages of life.

The skilled team of four

doctors comprises Dr Amrit

Riat, who has recently joined

the practice from Britain, Dr

Don Ponnamperuma, Dr

George Dehn and Dr Beth

Shore.

Dr Riat brings with her a

wide range of experience and

knowledge, while Dr Shore also

holds adiploma in child health

so particularly enjoys working

with children and families.

With two female doctors,

women’s health is afocus for

the centre.

They offer full women’s

health checks at $80 for the

45­minute appointment, as well

as family planning and

contraception.

Dr Dehn and Dr

Ponnamperuma both have a

special interest in

musculoskeletal medicine and

are experienced in treating the

aches and pains that can affect

muscles, bones and joints as we

age, or through injuries

sustained at work or playing

sport.

The Silverstream Medical

Centre, established in

September 2018, is fresh, bright

and welcoming, with a

comfortable waiting area, while

the friendly doctors, nurses and

administration staff ensure

everyone feels at ease.

The centre welcomes new

patients, with doctor visits free

for under­14s. Prescriptions

can be requested and

appointments booked through

its website.

Adjacent to the medical

centre is the Silverstream

Kaiapoi Pharmacy, offering a

full range of pharmaceutical

services.

Pharmacists Elena

Rimbovska and Georgia

McLean, who own and operate

the pharmacy, see their role as

one of the “puzzle pieces” in

the integrated health care of

customers.

Working in conjunction with

the customer’s doctor, they

focus on optimising medicines

for maximum benefit, by

advising customers on the best

way and best times to take

them.

For those who take multiple

medications, or who don’t feel

like they are getting the most

from their medication, afree

medicine review with a

pharmacist can be especially

helpful, Elena says.

“Managing medicines can be

quite overwhelming so we

encourage patients or family

members to talk to us if they

have any issues or questions,

and make the most of their local

pharmacy.”

Listening to patients’

concerns is important for the

pharmacists, and as experts in

medicine they are able to

provide afull counselling

service, with aprivate

consultation room available.

They also provide wound

care and dressing, and will

recommend other

professionals if more

specialised treatment is

required.

Both pharmacists say

supplements are now being

incorporated as part of a

healthy lifestyle, with more

people taking them.

“It’s great to see that people

are becoming interested in

natural health to prevent

health conditions, and age

well,” Elena says.

Total Health Physio &

Podiatry, located on the other

side of the medical centre,

specialises in manual, handson

physiotherapy and exercise

rehabilitation for clients of all

ages.

There are three senior­level

qualified physiotherapists on

the staff –Teresa Hoult,

Brigette Higinbottom and

Brittany Peacock.

“Having three

physiotherapists means we

have adiverse skill base,”

Teresa says.

Joint mobilisation and soft

tissue massage are applied to

help patients return to full

fitness after surgery or injury,

with exercise­based

rehabilitation an important

part of the process.

Treatment is tailored to suit

the individual patient’s needs

and sessions last for afull halfhour,

allowing the physiotherapist

to spend time with the

patient, which Teresa believes

is very important.

“Close working relationships

with the Silverstream Medical

Centre and the pharmacy, plus

specialists, means we can

ensure client management is

maximised,” she says.

Acupuncture treatment is

also available.

Podiatry services are offered

at the clinic every Monday and

Wednesday by qualified

podiatrist Corrie Hoult.

He provides general foot

care, including minor surgery,

and also makes orthotics, which

are specifically tailored to

individual needs.

Triton Audiology services are

available on Thursdays at the

clinic, with the audiologist and

ear nurse alternating

fortnightly. Free hearing tests

and ear wax removal is

provided by Triton.

Total Health Physio &

Podiatry also runs Pilates

classes, which are proving very

popular, Teresa says.

Pilates enhances core

strength and flexibility,

improving general well­being,

as well as being auseful tool for

injury rehabilitation and

prevention.

All three health facilities are

located at 42 Silverstream

Boulevard, with ample parking

allowing easy access to all the

medical services.

painful joints!

HANMER SPRINGS

AMURI ESTATE

The North Canterbury News, January 30, 2020

Tournament centrepiece ... Hanmer Springs Golf Club patron Bev Pool holds the W.C.

Simes Cup, which has arich history.

Golftournament

steeped inhistory

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Agolf trophy played for in Hanmer

Springs since the 1930s will takecentre

stage on March 14, at what is believedto

be New Zealand’s oldest mixed

tournament.

The W.C. Simes Cup was donated for

the bestnett score on the day.

Alongside this, the BascandFamily

Cup (best gross), and Minson Salver will

also feature at the tournament, which

attracts players from Christchurch and

throughoutNorth Canterbury.

The Minson Salver, donated by the

local Minson family, is limited to a

winning team which has at leastone

HanmerSpringsGolf Club member in it.

The tournament is steepedinhistory.

In the 1930s the club hosted about 140

players who played two rounds.After

the formalities and aget­together,

players wouldmove on to the Lodge

Hotel,now The Heritage, to dance to

music provided by an orchestra. It was

followed by supper.

In the 1950s it was still ahuge

tournament, with entries from several

different clubs, with players well known

to eachother.

Many names populate the honours

board,from localstoNew Zealand

representatives, but there were many

who also came for the social side.

Its popularitywas due to it being one

of the few golf tournamentsthat allowed

husbands and wives to play together.

For the locals, there were never

enoughwomen to partner the men, with

Simes Cup partnerships tending to be

jealouslyguarded, at leastbythe

blokes.

Local childrenwould offer

themselves as caddies, often until they

began playinginthe tournament

themselves.

awarded afive shilling bonus on top of

Followingthe seriousside of the

competition, kegs would be set up and

loud voices could be heard with

laughter overwhat happened on the

course, as yarns were told and retold.

There was agreat camaraderie among

It had something to do with the fact

the war was not longover and everybody

could relax again.

In 1953, the W.C. Simes Cup was won

by two localmen, D. Stavert and H.

Hamish takes plunge into art world

By SHELLEY TOPP

Two decades away from art,

working labouring jobs to ‘‘pay

the bills’’, has beeninspiring for

Amberley’s Hamish Reid.

The hiatus hasgiven him a

fresh perspective for his artwork

and the self­taught digital artist

openedhis firstsolo exhibition,

Qwerky Werks ,atthe Art on the

QuayGalleryinKaiapoi late last

week.

Hamish watchesalot of

YouTube videos to help in the

learning process. He alsostudied

art at Christchurch’s St Andrew’s

College and then did an art

course at the former

Christchurch Polytechnic.

But with limited opportunities

to earn money from his artwork

at the end of his polytechnic

course, Hamish looked

elsewhere to earnanincome.

‘‘The time awayhas beena

good thing,’’ he says.

However,hedidn’t alwaysfeel

that way. ‘‘Mylife was abit like

themovie GroundhogDay.Get

up,eight hours of slog, come

home, slump into my armchair,

watch the screenfor afew hours,

andthen go to bed. Rinse and

repeat. Very unsatisfying.’’

Eventually,hetooksome time

off for himself and hisfamily and

began drawingagain. He also

established hisown illustrations

business,PKME Innovations,

from his Amberley home.

‘‘Art is avery feastand famine

type of industry. You havetoput

yourselfout there to get a

response,’’ he explains.

In an effort to do that,he

createda2019 calendarcalled

Noah’s Lark for the 2018

Christmas market.

‘‘It is my take on whatmight

have happened on Noah’s Ark.’’

American cartoonist Gary

Larson,creator of The Far Side

cartoonseries,was an inspiration

for Noah’s Lark.

The calendar sold well, despite

limitedmarketing, and gave

Hamish the impetus to become

seriousabouthis artwork again.

His wife, Amanthea, and their

three children havesupported

his decisionand often provide

inspirationfor his art. ‘‘I bounce

ideas off them all of the time.’’

Hamish’s art is amixtureof

imagination. His work, Black and

White,began with something his

children said about panda cows.

The image shows nose to nose

communication between apanda

and ablack and white cow,with a

magpiesitting on the cow’s rump.

The panda and cow are on a

grassyknoll in front of an

aquamarine oceanbackdrop.

The image reflects Hamish’s

love of colour and pays homage to

black and white animals.

Art on the Quaygallery

manager Jackie Watson noted the

numberofred dots, confirming a

sale, on some of the works at the

show’slaunch. It wasan

indication of the quality of work,

she said. ‘‘Have agood lookatthe

work. It really is stunning.’’

The showends on March 4.

In brief

Concert planned

An outdoor concertwill be

held in Rangiora’s Victoria

Growth planning apriority

By DAVID HILL

Planningfor growth remains apriorityfor

the Waimakariri DistrictCouncil in its

latest annual plan.

Revised projections estimate the district

populationwill grow to around74,500 by

2028,from around 63,000.

Speaking at the opening session of the

2020/21 annualplan deliberationsthis

week,finance and business support

manager Jeff Millwardsaid this

represented around 4950 new houses over

the 10­yearperiod to 2028.

Basedonrecentgrowth, staff predict up

to 700 consents for new houses will be

issued over the nextyear. Giventhereare

26,000 rateable properties in the district,

this representsabout 2.7 percent growth.

Council staff are proposing a4%rates

increase averaged across the district,

which is below the 4.5% predicted last year

and 4.3%inthe 2018/28Long Term Plan.

It willcover localgovernment inflation

(2.2%),the earthquake recovery loan (1%)

and the sportsstadium loan (0.5%), while

new projects include meetingnew water

regulations,development, roading and

drainage projects, Mr Millwardsaid.

Rates increases will vary across the

district, with properties on the Oxford

Rural No. 1schemeset for a10.2% rise,

while Rangiora’srates are set to increase

4.2% and Kaiapoi by 3.3%. Garrymere

ratepayers will see asmall decrease.

Chief executive Jim Palmer said the

earthquakeshad made it difficultto

predict what is ‘‘businessasnormal’’.

He saidthe key is to ensure there is

capacity for future growth, butwhere to

placethose extra properties is achallenge.

Infrastructure needs to be provided to

meet that growth and there is alimitto

how far town boundariescan expand.

Mr Millward said totalexpenditure in

the 2020/21annualplan is estimated at

$109.9 million,anincrease of around7%,

with 64% to be covered by the rates

collection of $70.2m.

Roading projects make up the bulk of

the increaseinexpenses, which includes

New Zealand Transport Agency

subsidies.

Mr Palmer told councillorsthe budget

did notinclude the proposed Skewbridge

upgrade, estimated to cost $12 million,or

funding for the Burnside sewerupgrade.

Councillors wouldbeasked to consider

whether to waitfor agencyfundingfor the

bridge upgrade or ‘‘funditall ourselves’’.

Cultural experience ... Kaiapoi’s Waitangi Day commemorations recognise the different

cultures that make up the Waimakariri district.

Call for purpose-built space

By DAVID HILL

WOODEND

BAKERY

Pegasus residents are calling for a

purpose­built community centre to meet

the needs of agrowing community.

While they appreciate the

Waimakariri District Council’s efforts in

securing rooms in the town’s shopping

centre in Tahuna Street, Pegasus

Residents Group members say the

facilities have limitations.

Vice­president Rhonda Mather and

community connector Ronel Stephens

say the main room at the community

centre can seat up to 50 people, but the

group’s annual meetings attract more

than 100, meaning they need to be held

outside of Pegasus.

They would like afacility that caters to

all ages, including young people wanting

to play indoor ball sports.

The fast­growing town is expected to

house up to 6000 people when complete.

‘‘We are very grateful for the council’s

help because this is good for our town,’’

Ronel says.

‘‘Historically, towns had churches, but

we don’t have that in Pegasus. So this is

almost like the modern church. This is

where the community comes together.’’

The council’s priority is to build a

community facility, including alibrary,

at the new subdivision of Ravenswood,

as it is more central to the Woodend,

Pegasus and Waikuku communities.

‘‘We support the council building a

facility in Ravenswood. It makes sense

to have alibrary there, but we will need

afacility here too,’’ Rhonda says.

‘‘This is aleased facility, so it’s not

ideal for the council either. They

generally own their community

facilities.’’

The main room was officially opened

as acommunity centre in August 2017

and was added to last year when the

council secured alease on office space

next door, making ameeting room,

consulting room, kitchen and reception

area available to the community.

‘‘We would like to see the office space

could be ideal for consulting,’’ Ronel

says.

She says the residents group has

actively helped groups to become

established in the town and now those

groups are giving back, such as the

Pegasus Social Group, the Men’s Shed

and Woodend Women’s Institute, which

now meets in Pegasus.

The community centre is well used

during the week, including coffee and

chat sessions on Friday mornings, the

popular ‘‘Ronel’s community cuppa’’

held monthly on aWednesday, Saygo

fitness classes for the elderly, and ballet

lessons for youngsters.

Various local groups hold their

meetings at the centre and Ronel is

confident the facility will become an

attraction for out­of­town groups —

‘‘once the word gets out’’.

The resident’s group also produces

welcome booklets providing adirectory

of businesses and services for the

Pegasus, Woodend and Waikuku areas,

which has been picked up by the

Ravenswood developers.

While the residents’ group runs the

facility, bookings are now made through

the council.

Ewe prices ease, as dry summer unfolds

By DAVID HILL

Astrong yardingattracted

buyers from nearand far to the

Hawarden Ewe Fair last Friday.

Morethan 18,000 mixed­age

ewes and 30 rams went under

the hammer on ahot and dry

day, in front of astrong gallery

of buyers and spectators. Among

themwas Hurunui Mayor Marie

Black.

Buyers travelled from as far

afield as Marlborough, South

Canterbury and Central Otago.

‘‘I think thisisatypical event

where there is astrongyarding

and it shows thatthe sheep

industry is still acritical part of

our Hurunuidistrict,’’ Mrs

Black said.

The mayorsaid she came to

the fairasachild and regularly

attended with her husband.

‘‘Weare just having alook,so

not too serious.

‘‘With my husbandand I

farming, we always come for a

look because it’sagood social

day as much as anything.’’

Rural Livestock Canterbury

livestockmanager Donald

Cookesaid there was afull

clearance of sheep, withthe top

pens selling for more than $250,

comparable withprices at last

year's Hawarden Ewe Fair.

“In hindsight, it'snot abad

sale.Pre­Christmas,Iwould

have expected those ewestobe

worthanother $30 to $40.

“BackinDecember therewas

plenty of feed about and the

mutton price was strong.”

But therewere far more ewes

up for sale thanexpectedand

the dry summer conditions may

have created some uncertainty

in farmers' minds,MrCooke

said.

“I wouldsay the buyers will

feel they got realvaluefor

money. Some of those farmers

will haveculled older ewes for

in excess of $200pre­Christmas

and now they'rebuying younger

ewes sometimes for $50

cheaper.

“I would say some of the

vendors' reactionswould be

mixed.They might have come in

with higherexpectations and as

agentsIthinkwewere

FormerMayor Winton Dalley

was backtohis regularduties,

He said the volunteers

whilethe Hawarden fair regularly

attractedaround 20,000ewes for aone­day

sale.

‘‘It was all abit different.Inthe early

days they used to have the bar which they

had alicence for,’’ he says.

‘‘Thelicense expired halfanhour after

the lastsale, but the hard cases would

advertise to auction adog to keepthe bar

running until 10pm.

‘‘Theother big change is thebulkofthe

sheepwere driven here by the farmers.’’

The Hawarden EweFair used to feature

predominantly Corriedale ewes,with

keen competition between localfamilies

such as the Forresters, McFaddens,

Wrights, Carrs, Matthews and Blakeleys.

Mr Berry says buyers would comefrom

‘‘near and far to buy quality sheep’’.

‘‘Many of the sheep wenttoMid­

Canterbury, where theywere putto

Border Leicesterrams, and muchofthat

land probably has black and whites (dairy

cows)running around on it now.’’

Come along to our farmer community

workshops and have your say!

Mr Sidey’s family are well­known

StrathblaneStud, which is now run by his

son Jim.

Being astud breeder, Mr Sidey says he

rarely sold ewes at the fair, coming mainly

for the social sideand to keep an eye on

whatwas happening in the local sheep

industry.

‘‘But therewould have been alot of

Sidey blood in the sheep at the sales,’’ Mr

Berry adds.

Mr Berry first moved into the area as a

school teacheratHawardenin1978,

before going farming on his own account

10 years later.

Clear message ... Asign likely to become more widespread if the indigenous biodiversity

policy comes in.

Indigenous biodiversity

policy likely to bite

By JAMIE MCFADDEN, chairman of

the Rural Advocacy Network

Just before Christmas,the Government

releasedfor consultationanew policy that

will have major cost implications for

councils, ratepayers and landowners.

The proposed National Policy Statement

for Indigenous Biodiversity (NPSIB)

introduces new requirements to be

implemented by councils.

For many landowners,particularly hill

and high country farmers,this new policy

will have afar greaterimpactthan the

recent freshwater legislation.

Consistent withthe Government’s

approach to freshwater and climate

change, the moreyou have done to be good

environmental stewards, the more you will

be penalised underthis new law.

One of the more controversial partsof

the NPSIB is therequirementfor all

councils to undertake district­wide

ecological significance surveys. Anyone

who owns land can expect to be surveyed.

Currently, thisisvoluntary for councils

and many have notgone down this path

because of the hugecost, the conflict it

creates within their communities and the

lack of benefittobiodiversity outcomes.

New national significance criteriaunder

the NPSIB are much broader, meaning

most indigenous vegetation willbe

captured as Significant Natural Areas

(SNAs). Areas of exotic vegetation such as

pine,willows, gorseand pasture are likely

to be deemedSNA if it is habitat to an

important nativespecies.

Underthe NPSIB,most landowners will

have SNAs on their land and manyface

having most of their land designated SNA.

Stricterrules will apply to areasmapped

as SNAs,taonga or highly mobile species

habitat.Propertyvalues willbeaffected

for those withahigh proportionoftheir

land mappedSNA, without compensation.

For largedistricts by area, such as

Hurunui, Waimakariri and Kaikoura, the

obligations will be particularly onerous.

During the recent 2016Hurunui District

Plan review,extensive unchallenged

evidence showed the mapping and

regulating of SNAs on private landwas

counterproductive, hadturnedbiodiversity

into aliability and did not assist

or achieve protection. Evidence showed

that many SNAswould continue to

deteriorate or be lost if active management

was not carriedout.

As aresult,the hearingcommissioners

removed all SNA mapping from the

District Plan and, with no appeals, the new

plan (with no SNAs) became law.

Underthe proposed NPSIB, all councils

are required to survey their whole district

for not only SNAs but alsotaonga(Maori

treasures) and highly mobile species.

If landowners refuse access, councils

are required to desk­top map and if need

be force access using the Resource

Management Act (RMA)powers of entry.

Because of the lack of confidentiality

and the misuse of private property

information, many landowners have

refused access for surveys. If the NPSIBas

written is forced on to councils, it will

bring major disruptiontocommunities.

The RMA and NPSIBfail to recognise:

That landownerattitudes towards the

natural environment have changed;

That the nativeforest clearance

incentivised under previous government

policies no longer occurs;

Thereasonanimpressive 2.8 million

hectaresofnative vegetation remains on

sheep and beef farmsisbecause of

sympatheticlandowners;

That maintaining thatindigenous

vegetation has, and continues to be, a

considerable costtolandowners; and

Forany biodiversitypoliciestobe

effective, landownersupportiscritical.

Biodiversity protection on private land

reliesonthe goodwill of landownersand

must be seenasanasset, not aliability.

Landownersmustfeel confident that their

positive environmental effortswill not

resultinmore bureaucraticinterference.

It must be removed from the regulatory

punitive framework of the NPSIB and

RMA.

Our solution is to point to the success of

the QEIITrustcovenantingsystem and the

formerCatchment Boardapproach.A

partnership basedontrust andgoodwill;

tailor­made plans and rulesagreed to by

both parties;afocus on actions needed

ratherthan bureaucratic surveys;funding

towards and assistancewith management

of areas; confidentiality of private

property information and certainty for

both parties.The RMA andproposed

NPSIB provide none of these.

Over the nextyear, the Rural Advocacy

Network will be callingfor major changes

to our fragmented and ineffective

environmental laws.Wewant anational

advisory systemwith avision of developing

and nurturing the environmental ethosof

stewardship or kaitiakitangaacross all

landowners, ruraland urban, under one

holistic integrated planning framework.

Meantime, we are launching a

nationwidecampaign to telllandowners

about the NPSIB. We are calling for much

stronger supportfrom our industrygroups

in challenging the draconian,top down

approach this government continues to

take withenvironmentalpolicies.

Submissions close on March 14 and we

encourage landowners and those with an

interest in biodiversitytosubmit.

There are no publicmeetingsonthe

NPSIBand we have askedMinistry for the

Environmenttoreconsiderthisstance.

We have prepared acomprehensive

analysis of the implications of the NPSIB

and this can be obtained by emailing

‘Anyone is welcome’

By DAVID HILL

New Rangiora vicar RevToby Behan

wants hisparish to be ‘‘welcoming and

inclusive’’.

While issuessuch as same­sex marriage

havebeen divisive within the church,Toby

wants everyone to be welcome.

‘‘Anyone is welcome into thischurch. I

don’t think anyone is worsein

God’s eyes.Weall fallshort

andGod sees us all the same.

‘‘Churches can be quite cold

andAnglicans can be more

about formalism and the way

things aredone,but I’vebeen

pleasantly surprised by the

loveofGod in this parish.’’

It is 45­year­old Toby’s first

appointment as avicar,after

coming to ministry in mid­life

after acareerasaballet

dancer in his 20s,before

working for Telecom in acall

centre and then IT.

He is following in the footsteps of his

father, Rev WallyBehan, aretired

Anglican minister who served 19 years at

theLatimer Square parish. Hisbrother Jay

is alsoanAnglican minister in

Christchurch.

It was while attending worshipat

Latimer Square that Toby says he finally

answered the calltoministry.

‘‘I’ve been aChristian since

intermediate school. Over time Istarted

thinking about how Iwas contributingand

Ifelt acalling. There wasthe calling, butI

Rev Toby Behan

kindoffelt Iwasn’tgood enough and I

needed to getrid of that.’’

After training, he servedtwo years as a

curate at the Merivale/St AlbansAnglican

Parish in Christchurch before being

appointed to Rangiora in December.

Tobyhas moved to Rangiora with his

wifePrue, 17­year­old daughterTwyla,

who is taking agap year after finishing

school, and 15­year­old Toby,

who is in year11atMiddleton

Grange Schoolin

Christchurch.

‘‘The parish has been

incredibly welcoming. Prue

and Ihave felt really

privileged to be here. There

weregifts in the house when

we arrived and people had

comeand tidiedupthe

garden.’’

His new parishincludes

congregations at Loburn and

Fernside,aswell as Rangiora.

He seeshis role as being to

walkalongside people in their faith

journey.

‘‘I’m not here to dispense God’sgrace.

I’m not aspiritual vending machine. Ijust

wanttohelp the parish grow, as in growing

people individually in their relationship

withGod.’’

Tobysayshelooksforward to getting to

knowhis new community and enjoys being

just 15 minutes fromthe beach and the

mountains. He is alsoakeen golfer and

hopes to become more familiar with the

local courses.

Israel has just hosted an international meeting to

remember it is 75 years since the end of the Second

World war.The hope was that peace could be around the

corner.But what are the nations preparing for? Peace or

another thrust for domination? The Bible says that many

challenge anew ruler in Jerusalem. Whose side will we

be on at that time. To be forewarned is to be forearmed.
