Booze laws

in spotlight

By Linda Clarke

Ashburton police will be taking

acloser look at all the district’s

bars and their patrons following

abrawl involving 100 people at a

pub last weekend.

Senior sergeant Leigh Jenkins

said it was atimely look to see if

the establishments were

following liquor licensing laws.

Police work with local

authorities and bars as part of an

Alcohol Accord that monitors

liquor issues in the district.

Mr Jenkins said police had

met with them following the

brawl.

There would be atightening

up of the accord relationship to

ensure liquor licensing laws

were being complied with and

that patrons’ behaviour was

appropriate, he said.

‘‘We keep records of offences

that occur and we document the

place of last resort. If they spill

out of abar and there is an

assault or acar broken into or a

person is picked up for drinkdriving,

we establish where they

had been drinking.

‘‘That is information we

collate.’’

Bars that featured alot would

receive avisit from police.

Repeated non­compliance could

see liquor licences at risk.

Senior Sergeant Leigh

Jenkins

‘‘One hundred drunk people

having afight certainly caught

my eye.’’

Mr Jenkins said police would

also be keeping an eye on

roadworks sites as the $15

million central business district

redevelopment progressed.

Officers were being kept abreast

of road closures in case of

emergency situations and would

be taking adim view of people

unlawfully interfering with

contracting vehicles and

equipment.

Kite fanatics flock to lake

By Toni Williams

Agroup of international kite enthusiasts

travelling the country converged

at the weekend on Ashburton, considered

the global Mecca for kite flyers.

Their common interest drew them

to Ashburton company Peter Lynn

Kites; started by Peter Lynn in 1973.

Since then, under Peter’s guidance

and of late through Craig Hansen and

Simon Chisnall, the company has gone

on to set trends in kite flying around

the world.

The weekend’s visitors were from

Australia, Germany, England and the

United States and were following the

New Zealand Kite Tour 2020.

They arrived in Ashburton to tour

the Peter Lynn kite factory and take

part in afun fly event at Lake Hood.

Alan gives 100th blood donation

By Mick Jensen

Alan Huband has

notched up his 100th

blood donation and the

New Zealand Blood Service

has presented him

with aframed print and

certificate to mark the

impressive milestone.

The 70 year­old retired

to Ashburton five years

ago from Dunedin and

first gave blood in 1978.

For the past two

decades he’s consistently

given blood four times a

year.

‘‘They were calling for

donors years ago, and I

thought why not do my

bit,’’ said Mr Huband.

‘‘It isn't every day you

can do something to save

someone's life, but by

giving blood you can.

‘‘It’s quick and easy to

do and it’s a priceless

donation.’’

Mr Huband said he

encouraged everyone

that was able to give

blood, to do it, regardless

of their blood type.

‘‘I know afew people

who have received blood

transfusions, and it may

not be my blood they’ve

received, but it’s from a

donor like myself.’’

Mr Huband said

because he was over the

age of 60, each appointment

to give blood

started with his own

blood pressure and pulse

tested.

Donors completed a

health screen form and

had achat with anurse

before being allowed to

roll up their sleeve to give

blood, he said.

Each 470ml blood

donation usually takes

between six to eight

minutes and, in Mr

Huband’s case, whole

blood is taken and used

to help others.

Blood donors can give

blood from the age of 16

and until they are 76.

‘‘I’ll be ‘retired out’ in

six years time, but I’m

keen to keep giving until

then,’’ said Mr Huband.

The New Zealand

Blood Service needs

more than 3000 units of

blood a week nationally

to meet hospital needs.

Statistics show that less

than 4 per cent of all

possible donors actually

roll their sleeves up and

give each year.

Of the products collected,

some 25% is used

in cancer treatments,

18% for accident victims,

13% to help treat liver,

kidney and heart disease

Alan Huband completes his 100th blood donation and is presented with a

framed print and certificate by New Zealand Blood Service registered nurse

Lloyd Smith.

and 11% is needed to

treat pregnant women,

children and babies.

The mobile blood service

returns to the Ashburton

Club and MSA on

April 16. More information

website.

Family calls for epipen funding

after ‘scary’ bee sting encounter

By Linda Clarke

Abee sting has turned Marie

McDonald’s life upside down.

Marie’s two­year­old son

Marshall was stung on the leg by

abee earlier this month on the

dairy farm where she works near

Geraldine. Marshall had an

anaphylactic reaction and had

to be rushed to hospital.

Marie said she was moving

cows in apaddock, with Marshall

nearby, when the toddler

started crying and indicated he

had been stung. Minutes later

he was coughing and struggling

to breathe.

Marie, who has three other

children under the age of six,

called her husband Michael,

who drove him towards Timaru

Hospital; an ambulance met

them at Winchester and Marshall

was taken into their care.

He was later discharged from

hospital and given a prescription

for three epipens, which

deliver the vital adrenaline

needed to stop the anaphylactic

reaction after abee sting.

Marie said she was shocked

when the pharmacist asked for

nearly $350 ­ the epipens are

$149 each.

The couple could afford one,

but she said one also needed to

be kept at Marshall’s daycare

and another in the car. The

family qualifies for assistance

for just one pen from the

FundaPen project, acollaboration

between advocacy group

Allergy New Zealand and Pub

charity.

Marie said acheaper option

was available, involving her

drawing down the medicine

from an ampoule and injecting

it with asyringe herself, but she

was not confident of being able

to do that with success.

The auto­injector pens are

not funded by Pharmac or the

government as they are in Australia.

Marie said Marshall’s brush

with death had been stressful

and the family now faced the cost

of regularly buying epipens,

which havea12­monthshelf life.

She said she and her husband

worked hard and much of their

income went towardsliving costs

and bills like insurance.

She had reached out to ACC,

the Ministry of Health, the

Ministry for Social Development

and Work and Income for financial

assistance, but come up with

nothing.

On alimited income, it would

be a struggle to cover the

additional costs, she said.

In the meantime, she and the

family are living to astrict rule

that everywhere Marshall went,

so too did the one epipen they

had.

‘‘If he is stung again, Ihave to

stab him with it and ring the

ambulance. But that will only

give him minutes and they have

advised metohave three or four

pens as Imay have to stab him

more than once.

‘‘It is all so scary and new. And

bees are everywhere ... it is

always on my mind.’’

Kite fans gather

From page 1

Among the international

visitors to take in

the factory tour were former

employees Ron Reimers

and Karin Gurezka,

both of Hamburg, Germany;

Trent Baker, of

Melbourne, Australia;

and Allison and Nevil

Carvell, of Adelaide, Australia.

Mr Reimers, who lives

in Hamburg, was drawn

into kites as a19­year­old

by Peter Lynn’s invention

of the modern kite buggy.

Even now he still loves

flitting around on the

buggy and has taken to

kite surfing.

He runs akite surfing

school and a separate

wakeboard cable park in

Hamburg.

He is in New Zealand

with his partner Kaatje

van Hettinga and their

son Nias, 8, who needed

special dispensation to be

out of school.

Mr Reimers worked at

Peter Lynn Kites from

1999 to 2000 and he says it

was a life­changing

experience.

He has returned multiple

times and keeps a

backpack or two of kites

at the factory for return

visits.

“I have 25­year­old

kites and they are still in

working order,” he says,

which is a sign of the

quality in design and

make of the Peter Lynn

Kites.

It is the same for Ms

Gurezka, who often visits.

She too has abackpack on

site but it’s full of the

basics for travelling on the

other side of the world.

She knew Peter and

Elwyn Lynn through kites

and took asabbatical to

Ashburton in 2017, working

in the factory and

learning the craft.

She got hooked on kites

in Germany in the mid­

80s when in her early 20s.

It was around the time the

first International Kite

Festival was held in Berlin.

It’s still a hobby, she

says, but one which has

taken her around the

world and given her a

chance to meet some

great people.

Australian couple Allison

and Nevil Carvell are

members of the Adelaide

Kite Flyers Association.

They met through kite

flying but both took it up

in the early 90s.

Mrs Carvell, when single

and in her early 20s,

was in astunt flying team

competing in competitions

around Australia.

It was the kite buggy

which also thrilled Mr

Carvell. He went on to

win the Australian Kite

Buggy Championship title

around 20 years ago.

It's adifferent story for

Mr Baker. He was born

into the kite world; his

parents, Jo and Ricky,

own Kites 4Kids in Melbourne.

He has grown up

around people in the kite

industry and has been

working at the Ashburton

factory since September,

learning the craft around

cutting, sewing and design

work.

And he’s loving it.

He said it was close to

home, language was not a

barrier and he had been

around Peter Lynn Kites

his whole life.

He also has known

Craig Hansen and Simon

Chisnall for many years.

“Most designers have

come from or passed

through here. Had some

sort of experience at Peter

Lynn Kites,” he says.

Grand plan for school rugby

By Linda Clarke

Twenty young rugby players

were putting in the hard yards at

Ashburton College last weekend

as an ambitious plan to rebuild

secondary school rugby in the

district began to unfold for 2020.

Under the eye of experienced

coach Shane Enright, the players

from Ashburton and Mt Hutt

College have committed to the

hours of training each week that

come with playing for the Mid

Canterbury Combined First XV.

The side has struggled in the

UC Championship secondary

school competition over the past

few seasons, but agroup of

supporters and sponsors are

investing time, resources and

money in afive­year plan to

make the team competitive

again.

They say it is important for

secondary school rugby across

the district that the side stays in

the Crusaders’ region first XV

competition and there is areal

risk that if it continued to

languish at the bottom of the

table it may risk losing aposition

in the competition. If this was to

happen the chances of ever

getting back in to the

competition would be very

difficult.

Enright is acoach who knows

what it takes. He was in charge of

the Ashburton College team that

was the top South Island co­ed

side in 2013 and went to Rotorua

for the national co­ed champs.

Stars from that team, Seta

Koroitamana and Nete Caucau,

are still playing the game at a

high level for Mid Canterbury.

Enright is being assisted by

Methven’s James Roderick and

Mid Canterbury Combined first XV players listen to coaches Shane Enright and James

Roderick at arecent training.

is still looking for aforwards

coach and ateam manager.

Others have been working

hard in the background securing

support for secondary school

rugby and the district will also

have acombined girls’ XV.

Ashburton College is also

hoping to enter an U15 boys

team in aweek­day competition.

The 20 young men on the

playing field at Ashburton

College last weekend ran afew

skills drills and agruelling

Bronco fitness test to gauge how

they were tracking since starting

personal fitness programmes a

month ago. They will need more

to join their group.

Enright said he was pleased at

their progress. Morning gym

sessions will begin soon, along

with training three times aweek.

“We want to get abit of pride

back in the jersey and get kids to

understand what first XV rugby

is all about. It gives them the

experience of going to Christs

College or STAC and other big

schools, and it also gets them

ready to play senior rugby too

when they leave school.”

Rugby numbers for the age

group were dropping off around

New Zealand. “We want the

clubs to understand this is agood

pathway.”

Enright said the players not

only benefited from the rugby,

but made friends and memories

for life.

Supporters’ spokesman Brett

Jane Naish's garden is afloral delight, bringing joy to her and all who see it.

Greenfingersinthe family

Jane Naish’s garden is afloral

delight.

The backyard property may

have limited garden and lawn

space but what space there is

Jane has lovingly taken to with

hundreds of flowers and

plantings of all descriptions in

pots, hanging baskets or in the

garden along the driveway.

The flowers draw the eye from

the gate and up the driveway.

It’s an oasis of colour perfectly

co­ordinated and includes

lobelia, petunia, roses (climbing,

miniature, carpet and standard)

nicotiana, lillies, afew types of

alstroemeria, carnations,

azaleas, geraniums, lavender and

wool flowers. The dahlia’s were

late blooming and not out yet.

But there is so much more.

Jane says the secret to her

blooming success is ACL soil

and Alford Road mushroom

compost.

She regularly tends to the

garden, helped on occasion by

husband Tony, but because of

the plantings with full

groundcover there are limited

weeds.

The garden took ahit from

recent hail, twice, and she admits

it was the third time she had

replanted some of the plants.

She was determined the weather

was not going to ruin her garden.

‘‘Some grew back but alot

were lost,’’ she says.

Her favourite plant is the

platycodon which she has in

white, purple and pink colours.

And her success is not limited

to flowers.

Jane also has asuccessful

vertical herb garden and a

vegetable garden tucked around

the corner.

This season it’s had impressive

selection of produce including

mint, basil, potatoes,

cauliflowers, carrots, cabbages

and strawberries.

Jane attributes her greenfingers

as afamily trait.

Her grandfather, the late

Percy Cavill, showed dahlias in

Ashburton and some of her

uncles worked for Ng King

Brothers market garden. She

says most of her relatives have

good gardens.

Hobbs said the long­term goal

was for rugby to be rebuilt at the

same time as Ashburton College

built its new $50 million campus.

“We want people to come and

watchand be proud to support

this team. We alsowant to see

someofthe historic pride of

playingfirstXVrugbybought

backinto the schools andhope

thismay benefit the whole

communityinthe longrun. We

planwillbereleased laterand if

NZTA addresses

safety concerns

The NZ Transport

Agency will address safety

concerns about a heavy

vehicle weigh station near

the SH1 Rakaia River

bridge and hopes tohave

the facility built by the

end of the year.

A resource consent

application for the station,

on land between the

Rakaia River bridge and

the rail overbridge, is

being processed by the

Selwyn District Council.

The Ashburton District

Council is concerned that

the spot will be dangerous,

with slow­moving

heavy trucks pulling into

and out of the weigh

station. Councillors are

worried about crashes.

NZTA principal project

manager Graham

Taylor told the Courier

NZTA took council’s concerns

seriously and would

be looking tospeak directly

to them about mitigation

it was proposing.

He said the agency had

conducted asafety audit

of the design. ‘‘The safety

auditors have made a

number of recommendations

to address safety

risks and these have been

adopted. We will be discussing

this audit with both

GREAT

RATES

the Ashburton and Selwyn

District Councils.’’

Mr Taylor said other

sites were considered but

the Rakaia bridge site was

the one that could be

made safe and which

would have the most

benefit by ensuring heavy

vehicles complied with

weight and other regulations.

‘‘The Weigh Right Programme

is installing roadside

technology and

screening systems that

create alevel playing field

for the freight industry.

With the technology we

are using, compliant

vehicles are able to continue

their journey uninterrupted,

while noncompliant

vehicles will be

directed to pull into the

weigh station.’’

NZTA has asked the

Ashburton council for an

easement of land on the

southern side of the

Rakaia bridge, on which

to erect a sign warning

drivers of heavy vehicles

there is a weigh station

ahead. Council has not yet

said yes.

The proposed Rakaia

facility will be similar to

the Glasnevin weigh station

in North Canterbury.

By Mick Jensen

There are some tasty, traditional

Poland.

Long term Mid Canterbury

Avid book readers rewarded

Winning young readers Liam Bennett, 6(left) and

Brooklyn Delanere, 9, at the Ashburton children’s

library.

By Linda Clarke

Five young Mid Canterbury

readers have been rewarded

for their enthusiastic literacy

habits.

Brooklyn Delanere, Liam

Bennett, Jan Archer

Manzano, Savannah Harkers

and Izzy Brook were among

repeat customers of the Ashburton

Library’s children section

over the holidays and

have all won $50 vouchers

after their names were drawn

from a lucky dip of borrowers.

Brooklyn, 9, and Liam, 6,

were on hand to collect their

vouchers as children’s librarian

Jonathan Nixon conducted

the draw after afun

hour of games, attended by

about 30 children.

Mr Nixon apologised for a

shortage of potato chips, saying

last year’s event was

attended by only five children

but he was stoked to see so

many more young readers.

The children played some

old­fashioned games that

included trying to melt an ice

cube with bare hands, keeping

two balloons in the air for

as long aspossible and building

a tower of Nutrigrains

using chopsticks.

The children competed in

eight challenges and were

rewarded with drinks and

nibbles as the summer reading

programme wound up for

the holidays.

Brooklyn said his favourite

book over the break had been

the Tractor Book while

Liam’s favourite was the Lego

Pirate book.

‘‘I am glad you all read so

much,’’ Mr Nixon told the

assembled young readers.

‘‘Thank you for taking part in

the summer challenge and I

hope to see you throughout

the year.

over the winter months.

The Polish stall, like other

stalls, will be decorated for the

day in the country’s colours of

red and white, and stallholders

will wear traditional style

costumes.

Also on the Bite menu this

year is food popular in the

Philippines.

Aroast pork dish (lechon),

steam dumplings (siomai) and

empanadas, both beef, and

ham and cheese, would be

offered, said Philippines born

Acel Aguila.

It was her second event as a

Bite stallholder and she had

enjoyed last year’s experience,

she said.

She, along with three

friends, and assisted by family,

would run the stall, and would

‘‘dress ittoimpress’’.

Organisers of MultiCultural

Bite are encouraging the public

to reuse plates, cups and

cutlery where possible this

year, or even to bring their

own.

4WD safari

asuccess

Over 250 people in 85 vehicles enjoyed

perfect weather conditions and some

impressive scenery ata4WD fundraiser

in the Mid Canterbury high country on

Saturday.

The vehicle convoy went up the Stour

Valley to Lake Heron Station and

returned via Lake Heron Road and

historic Hakatere.

Spokesman David Howden said feedback

from the trip had been good and

organisers were pleased withthe turn out.

The convoy had stopped off at Manuka

Hut, where Mt Somers farmer

Robert Schikker had spoken about

mustering, and later at Double Hut,

where Marian Bellamy from the Lake

Heron Conservation Trust had talked

about Harrison’s Bight.

He said the 4WD safari had gone

without any major incidents and the

Alford Forest firetrailer,which hadbeen

on standby, had not been needed.

Mr Howden said the views had been

impressive throughout andthe trackused

by the convoy was now an ideal run for

mountain bikers.

The 4WD safari was co­ordinated by

the Ashburton 4WD Club and was a

fundraiser for the Mt Somers Walkway

Society.

Bella, Molly rule the canine world

By Linda Clarke

Bella is the most popular dog’s name

in the Ashburton district, closely

followed by Molly.

There are around 6230 registered

dogs in the district, though the

Ashburton District Council believes

another 600 are not registered.

The top 10 most popular names

last year were Bella (103), Molly

(82), Max (63), Poppy (60), Jack (59),

Jess (55), Charlie (55), Sam (52),

Meg (52) and Ruby (51).

Molly might be second on the list,

but two­year­old Molly the Jack

Russell­Bichon cross is number one

in the eyes of her owner Victoria

Lewthwaite. Victoria acquired Molly

as apup, small enough to fit into the

palm of her hand. Now the energetic

canine weighs around 5kg and is fully

grown.

The pair are often out exercising

and Victoria took her recently on an

8km run. “I thought she would want

to go to sleep after that, but no.”

Molly is allowed inside and sleeps

on her own bed, though on winter’s

nights she creeps under the covers

with Victoria and her partner.

“He said no way she is sleeping in

the bedroom, but she wiggles her way

in.”

She loves to chase tennis balls and

shred them with her sharp teeth

afterwards. Along with tennis balls,

she chews other things, including one

of an expensive pair of boots

belonging to Victoria. She managed

to catch Molly in action after she had

only chewed aoff asmall decorative

tag.

Molly is also partial to treats and

loves ice cubes and apple, preferably

Royal Gala variety.

It is double trouble when

Victoria’s mum brings her Bichon

schitzu cross Bella to visit. Bella, not

yet ayear old, is used to farm life at

Mt Somers and the pair run energetic

circles in the front yard. With the

gate carefully shut.

Council’s list of most popular

names almost tallies with those using

local doggie day care services.

At the Little Dog House, Molly

was most popular followed by Bella

and Belle. In the facility for bigger

dogs, Ollie and Poppy were the most

popular names, followed by Gus,

Max, Molly and Rosie.

Other popular names were Sky,

Marley, Murphy, Alfie, Baxter, Coco

and Cooper.

Two different versions of Molly at the Dog House.

Dog control rises

in warmer weather

Dog owners in the Ashburton

district are afairly obedient lot.

In the fourweekstoJanuary16,

the Ashburton DistrictCouncil

received 60 dog complaints ­less

than one per cent of the 6231 dogs

registered.

Complaints usually rise during

summer when dogsand owners

are out more. Over the recent

holiday breakperiod,council

received nine complaints of

barking dogs, three of dog attacks,

one about welfare and 47 about

wondering or lost dogs.

Council environmental services

groupmanager JaneDonaldson

said animalcontrolor

managementactivity rose in the

warmer months as owners

exercisedtheir dogs later in the

day and more dogswere generally

out and about.

She said ownersneededtoknow

wheretheir dogscould be off the

lead and be able to stop their dog

from runninguptoand jumping

up at people.

‘‘Whatsome see as playful but

harmless behaviour,others may

see as out­of­control behaviour. If

your dog jumps up at someone,

somepeople might not mindbut

others might get frightened. As a

dog owner, you need to ensure

your dog doesnot cause any

distress.’’

Council provides designated

areas where dogs can be exercised

off leashand recently openeda

new dog parkatMethven. Dogs

off the lead must still be under

direct controloftheir owners.

Council bylawrequire dogs to

be on the leashinpublic places.

Other common complaints were

about ownersnot picking up their

dog poo.

Ms Donaldson said people

planning on going away for a

holiday also needed to ensure that

their dog wouldbeproperly cared

for.

‘‘Dogs can suffer anxiety and

stressiftheir owner is away, which

results in nuisanceexcessive

barking or dogsescapingthe

propertyand wandering. We often

find that owners areaway,

thinking that sufficient carehas

been met for their dogs ... quite

oftenthat is notthe case.’’

Four­lane campaign

Rangitata MP Andrew

Falloon has launched a

new campaign to extend

the road between

Ashburton and

Christchurch to four

lanes.

Four­laning the

dangerous stretch was

under consideration in

2017 but then axed by the

Government.

Between 2007 and

2016, 13 people died on

the section between the

Selwyn River and

Ashburton alone and 49

were seriously injured on

the road. Road safety

improvements like

median barriers and

rumble strips were

proposed.

Mr Falloon is urging

Ashburton people who

want four lanes back on

the Government agenda

to message Transport

Minister Phil Twyford

directly. He has set up a

website www.fourlanes.

co.nz to make it easy and

within just afew days 450

people had sent

messages.

He said after cutting

more than $5 billion from

the State Highway

budget, the Government

had since announced

plans to borrow $19

billion, with $6.8 billion

earmarked for rail and

road projects.

National’s Transport spokesperson Chris Bishop

(left) and Rangitata MP Andrew Falloon on State

Highway 1, which they want four-laned between

Ashburton and Christchurch.

“Phil Twyford has told

Parliament that New

Zealand has overinvested

in roads and motorways

for decades, but it’s my

hope with astrong

message from locals we

can convince him of the

need to upgrade our road

to modern standards,’’

Mr Falloon said.

“A second bridge over

the Rakaia River is an

important part of the

project, but by itself it

isn’t enough. 2010 to 2018

data shows that of around

40 fatal crashes between

Ashburton and

Christchurch, three have

been on or near the

bridge.’’

Mr Falloon said fourlane

highways at

Tauranga and Cambridge

had been successful, with

zero fatalities in more

than two years.‘‘Both are

highly engineered roads

with speed limits of 110

km/h.’’

He said that with

construction of the

Rolleston to Christchurch

four­lane section drawing

to aconclusion it was

important there was some

certainty about

continuing on with the

project south.

The email message

points out that traffic

volumes between

Christchurch and

Ashburton have doubled

in the last 20 years and

the road is now less safe

as aresult.

The Kittyhawk Hangar on Seafield Road is the last surviving hangar built

during World War II.

Film for hangarfund

The Kittyhawk Hangar

Restoration Group is not

waiting for funding to fall

out of the sky, they are

actively raising funds for

their project and will host a

movie fundraiser tonight.

The movie, Midway,

rated M, is based on the

Pearl Harbor attack and

the subsequent Battle of

Midway during World War

II. It starts at 8pm and

features an ensemble cast

including Ed Skrein, Nick

Jonas, Mandy Moore,

Dennis Quaid and Woody

Harrelson.

Alistair Perkins, who is a

member of the hangar

restoration group, being

led by aviator Ian Begbie,

said the movie seemed

appropriate viewing for a

group of historical aviation

enthusiasts, and agood

chance to raise funds for

the project.

It was the group’s first

fundraising venture and

had come about as they did

not want to sit around

waiting for funding while

the building continued to

deteriorate.

The hangar on Seafield

Road is on land owned by

the Ashburton District

Council.

The council is working

with the group on the

project and gave them

$7000 seed money through

the Community Grants

and Funding

subcommittee in late 2018.

It was to secure and help

with the rebuild.

Mr Perkins said agroup

of ARA polytechnic

students studying

architecture had been on

site and taken on the

hangar restoration

architectural drawings pro

bono as part of their

course project.

‘‘It’s good to have them

on board,’’ he said.

Next it would be good to

find abuilder who was

‘‘keen to do historical

construction’’.

It was likely athird of

the hangar could be

restored with the

remaining two­thirds of it

in need of rebuild.

‘‘It’s beyond the home

handyman stages,’’ he said.

The group was also in

the throes of gaining

charitable trust status and

would seek to change the

heritage status from its

local level to anational

one.

He said the hangar was

one of nine built and was

the last one to survive.

It would remain on site

at its current location as it

had good foundations.

Tickets, which cost $20,

can be bought at the door

from 7.45pm tonight

(Thursday).

Pendarves Young Farmers, Farmstrong and Rakaia’s

Railway Tavern raised hundreds of dollars for

Farmstrong, hosting aYoung Farmers Speed Shear

event atthe tavern last weekend.

the skills and resources to live well, farm well and get

the most out of life.

The total figure raised is yet to be finalised but

Pendarves Young Farmers president David Bell said

‘‘it was aripper’’.

There was an impressive figure raised bydonations

on door entry alone, hesaid.

Money was raised through door entry, through an on

site auction, abucket collection during the night and

generously from apercentage of the bar takings on the

night.

Mr Bell said 18 shearers got involved helping to raise

money for the organisationand making it an enjoyable

event for all involved.

They were mostly experienced shearers who took to

the stands in one of three competition categories

Farmers Ashburton staff were proud to hand over

$4047 to Nurse Maude and Mid Canterbury

Hospice recently, the result of some special pre­

Christmas sales.

Farmers stores around the country sold hospice

baubles and took donations, and put memorial cards

on adedicated remembrance tree, raising $739,349.

The Ashburton store proceeds will be split

between Nurse Maude, which provides clinical

services to terminally­ill patientsinthe district, and

Mid Canterbury Hospice which provides other

support.

Mid Canterbury Hospice manager Christine

Wilson said they were grateful for the support and

the money would bewell used.

Nurse Maude Canterbury manager Jane Rollings

said the project not only raised money for

hospice, but helped start conversations about

hospice work.

‘‘It is not only about the money but the

community understanding what hospice is all

about. What you have raised isincredible for a

small store,’’ she told Farmers staff.

She said the money raised locally would go

directly to supporting patients and families.

Store manager Grant Moffitt said the hospice

baubles had been selling for five years and staff

embraced the project annually. Many had family

members who had used hospice services. ‘‘Understanding

makesiteasier for us to ask for donations.

We can explain what happens and demystify

hospice abit.’’

Motus physiotherapist Bridget Sheed will be competing in the Coast to Coast for the first time.

Physio’s epic challenge

Despite spending the past four years

treating Coast to Coast athletes for

knee and ankle injuries,

physiotherapist Bridget Sheed is

lining up for the multisport herself

this year.

She has spent 12 months training

up to 15 hours aweek running,

cycling or getting to grips with the

technical aspects of kayaking.

‘‘I watched it last year and decided

Iwas going to do it.’’ And she has

given up unhealthy food, alcohol and

nearly all of her free time to get

there.

The race includes road cycling, a

30km mountain run and a70km

kayak leg on the unpredictable

Waimakariri River.

Bridget said she knew competitors

suffered lot of knee and ankle

injuries so she had not shirked

strength training in her preparation.

Also key for the first­timer doing

the two­day event has been training

with the big group of Mid Canterbury

athletes taking part. Being able to tap

into their collective knowledge has

been helpful.

Methven schoolboys Alex

Roderick, Jack Miers and Adam

Shears have been tapping into the

experience of nine­time men’s

champion Steve Gurney.

The trio were the recipients last

year of the Kathmandu Academy

pack, which supports young people

getting into the outdoors; the pack

included avisit from the champion.

“It was great to get some tips from

him,” Adam said.

“We got the chance to learn afew

things about what to do and some,

what not to­dos.’’

Adam will start his team on the

first bike leg from Kumara Beach to

Aitkins Corner and riding his team

home on the final leg from the

Waimakariri Gorge to New Brighton

Beach and he has been clocking up

the kilometres in training.

Classmate Alex is looking forward

to the Goat Pass mountain run.

“Training has been hard, but fun as

well, seeing my improvement go up

and up has been great.”

Alex has been running four times a

week, with runs up to 45 minutes

each, along with one run around two

hours long each week as well.

Jack recently has been completing

his grade two kayak certificate and

getting to know the Rakaia River well

in training.

Jarrod Coutts, who runs the

outdoor education department at Mt

Hutt College, said he hoped the boys’

efforts could motivate the next batch

of multisporters at the school.

Speak up on speed limits, says road safety advocate

Roadsafetyadvocate John

SkevingtonisurgingLake Hood’s

community and others in Mid

Canterburytoget cracking and let

the Ashburton DistrictCouncilknow

what they think of proposed speed

limit changes in their communities.

The proposedchanges are not set

in stone,MrSkevington said.

He does not agree with lowering

speedlimitsto30kmh in LakeHood

subdivisions, where he lives,nor with

raising the speed limitfrom70kmhto

80kmhatthe startofHuntingdon

Avenue.

He says 40kmh might be more

appropriate andpractical in the

subdivisions.

Council is currently consulting on

the speed limit changes and says a

national pushtoreduce crash

injuries plus growth in someMid

Canterbury urbanareas has brought

about the needfor change.

Mr Skevington said there had been

several crashes on Huntingdon

Avenue andthe current70kmh was

alreadytrickyfor somedrivers, given

the cornersand camber of the road.

He said while Lochlea, with a

greater number of olderdrivers,

might be suitable for a30kmh limit,

other subdivisions would be better at

40kmh.Heencouragedresidents in

other communities to thinkabout

what was rightfor them and make a

submission.

‘‘It doesn’t have to be aone­size

fits all.’’

Council last reviewed speedlimits

in 2012.

Ashburton DistrictMayor Neil

Brown said since that time,the

districthad seen significant growth

and expansion, particularlyonthe

outskirts of many urban

communities.

‘‘Thecouncil is constantly

Multisporters click

in new kayak club

The biggest contingent of Mid

Canterbury multisporters for some

years will head to Kumara for the

start of the iconic Coast to Coast this

year.

The 243km challenge from one

side of the South Island to the other

on February 7and 8will test their

cycling, mountain running and

kayaking skills in the most gruelling

and adventurous way. The athletes

choose one or two­day options, and

compete as individuals or in teams.

Many of the Mid Canterbury crew

have been training as abig group

with weekly kayak outings on Lake

Hood, as well as cycle sessions and

races and off­road runs.

Sam Clements­Stewart, who will

compete in the one­day event, set up

agroup page on Facebook ayear

ago and has been surprised by the

following it has generated ­the

outcome has been anew kayak club.

‘‘We thought we might get acouple

on the lake over winter, but we had

up to 10, and then we’ve had 20­30

people at different times after

daylight savings.’’

He said the group had nearly 60

men and women, of mixed ability,

age and experience and had been a

great sharing ground for people new

to multisports. ‘‘It’s been good for

connecting people and agood way to

assessing the physicalaspects of our

expansive roading network to ensure

it is safe for all users.

‘‘Sometimes, this means road

improvementsthat help improve

safety under the current speed limit,

but insome instances it means

lowering the speed limit to ensure

thatthe roads have safetravel

speeds.

‘‘We want to make sure that

everyone who uses ourroads gets to

their destinationsafely.’’

Researchshowsthat apedestrian

struckbyavehicle at 40kmh has a70

per centchance of survival. A

find training buddies.’’

The new club even held

championships recently, with Eddie

Hobson the overall male champ and

Rachel Reid the female champ.

Fastest man was Gerard Morrison

and the fastest female Rachel

Schmack.

Sam said he was aware of 24 locals

competing in this year’s Coast to

Coast, including nine in the one­day

event. ‘‘I doubt Ashburton has ever

had close to this before.’’

One of the hardest trainers has

been Matt Amos, who will line up as

part of the elite one­day field. Sam,

who is in the one­day event, said the

athletes were tapering off from big

weeks of training in preparation for

the event. He was hoping for fine,

calm weather and aback wind on the

cycle into Christchurch.

It will be Sam’s third Coast to

Coast and he said he got into

multisport after moving from

Auckland to Ashburton. He met

Cameron Harcourt in apub after a

game of rugby and started mountain

running; that quickly led to other

sports.

Kayak races will continue at Lake

Hood after the big race and all

abilities are welcome. People start

arriving from 5pm with racing

starting from 5.45pm.

Ashburton Kayak Club members have been training for the Coast to

Coast at Lake Hood. Photo Megan Ellis

In additiontogrowing urban

areas, councilhas also received

several speed limit suggestions from

residents in the pasteight yearsand

these ideas havehelped to formulate

the proposals being put forward.

Mr Brownsaid although speed

changes are not proposed for all

roads, residents were welcometo

includetheir suggestions for any

Cars out for annual rally

John and Margaret Rickard in their 1938 Austin Seven Opal

roadster Minty at the rally start line.

Photo supplied

By Linda Clarke

Fifty­one old cars, one dating

back to 1903, enjoyed aperfect

day’s motoring around Mid Canterbury

last weekend.

Among them was the restored

1938 Austin Seven Opal Roadster

of John and Margaret Rickard.

Named Minty, the Austin was

rescued from the wrecker’s yard

by John and lovingly brought

back to life over 30 years, with the

help of John’s father Fred.

Saturday’s rally was the 51st

annual rally of the Mid Canterbury

Vintage Car Club and club

captain Peter Lambie said it was

fitting 51 cars took part.

The drivers took part in afield

test at the club’s Maronan Road

rooms before embarking on a

rally that ended at Awa Awa Rata

reserve. Drivers were asked to

nominate the time it would take

them to travel the 70km, or the

shorter 56km route, and the

overall winner was Paul Finch, in

a1924 Dodge.

There was also atrophy for the

people’s choice car, which went to

Ron Galletly and his 1935 blue

Chrysler PJ coupe.

The oldest car in the rally was

a 1903 Darracq, belonging to

Gavin and Annette Hunt and the

sole motorcycle on the rally, a

Douglas, belonged to Percy Ralston.

Mr Lambie said owners of

some of the veteran and vintage

cars opted for the shorter routes

because of the age of their

vehicles, but the largest category

was cars from the 1960s, which

afforded a little more riding

comfort and style.

He said members loved taking

their vehicles on the road and the

rally was also well supported by

car enthusiasts from Timaru.

‘‘Most of the people just like to

bring their cars along and have a

get­together and show their

cars.’’

The club’s next major event is

the annual swap meet on May 2

that kicks off Wheels Week.

Workshops offer drama taster

Ashburton youngsters have

enjoyed two free drama taster

workshops from the Giant Leaps

Speech Company.

Last week’s theatrics workshops

were aimed at primary and intermediate

age children and held in

the Variety Theatre Ashburton

rooms on Wills Street.

The workshops gave the youngsters

the experience of speech and

drama with an experienced tutor.

Effective communication was a

key part of the sessions, which

encouraged fun and selfexpression.

Giant Leaps will run regular

classes of speech, drama and public

speaking in Ashburton this year,

both after school and in some

primary schools.

Nature Matters with Mary Ralston

Cabbage trees are a distinctive

feature of the New Zealand landscape.

There are five species: the

one in our area is cordyline australis,

the most common species. It

naturally occurs in sunny places

throughout the North and South

Islands in swamps, forest margins

and along river beds up to an

elevation of about 1000 metres.

Some grow very big –the largest

specimen with asingle trunk grows

in Golden Bay. It is estimated to be

400 or 500 years old, is 17 metres

tall with acircumference of nine

metres at the base.

In our district, cabbage trees are

one of the few native plants seen

along roadsides.

The ones near Barrhill are anice

contrast to the intensively farmed

land on the other side of the fences.

They may have been planted by

Maori to mark the way; they shoot

easily from pieces of stem and are

very long­lived so they are ideal to

use for this purpose.

Acabbage tree along the

Rakaia Barrhill Road.

As well as markers along trails,

boundaries and cemeteries, Maori

used cabbage trees for food. Food

from the root of young trees was

known as kauru.

They were dug up just before the

flowering of the plant, and baked,

or steamed.

The tough leaves were also put to

good use and woven into baskets,

mats, capes and sandals. European

settlers also used the cabbage tree

–they ate the young leaves from

the centres of the heads, hence its

common name.

Cabbage trees are an important

part of the landscape on the plains

but we cannot assume the old ones

along roadsides will last forever,

despite their hardy nature.

They are vulnerable to cultivation,

grazing and accidental

death from spraying or mowing.

We need to celebrate these

wonderful specimens and do what

we can to protect them: by fencing

off existing trees, planting more

along roadsides and in gardens,

along fenced­off streams and in

other restoration projects.

Rothesay Deer’s Donald Greig breeds composite deer for trophy, venison and velvet markets.

Diversifying deer to suit market

By Toni Williams

Rothesay Deer owner Donald Greig has

been building up the genetics in his English

and composite deer operation for more

than three decades.

The farm, near Methven, isspread over

three sites but the home block has been in

the family for two generations.

The land where the stag block sits is an

extension to the original farm secured by

his father, Tom Greig, following World

War II.

That land was part of a rehabilitation

block for ex­servicemen to use for farming

after World War II.

Donald says the name, Rothesay Deer, is

after the town of Rothesay, which sits on

the Isle ofBute, in Scotland.

It is where the Greig’s descendants hail

from four generations ago.

Donald spent his early years working on

the farm, then got involved in the helicopter

industry as a deer hunter. He is also an

outfitter (or ahunting guide).

While his father ran the farm as a

cropping and stock unit Donald, keen on

the outdoors and deer shooting, developed

an interest in deer farming.

In around 1978 his father let him have a

small corner of the farm for asmall deer

herd.

The deer operation eventually took over.

There are no longer crop on farm, or any

other stock.

The stag block alone now covers 62

hectares, with another 20hectares leased

nearby for hinds, and the main deer herd,

along with elk and fallow deer, is run on 74

hectares atMt Somers.

Donald is farming deer to tap into the

trophy, venison and velvet markets.

It’s an intensively farmed operation with

acommercial focus.

And it’s quite successful with reputable

game safari park buyers around New

Zealand keen to snap up atrophy stag with

impressive tynes, or pointers, for their

international and domestic clients.

The trophy animals are bred for afullhard

antler head and success isbased on

number and length of the tynes, notably

different from those bred for venison and

velvet which has a focus on beam size,

thickness, weight and blood components.

Donald has most sizes represented on

farm, and up for grabs during his annual on

farm sale.

His best trophy animal has an impressive

700SCI (Safari Club International) score.

‘‘Deer are abit of achallenge to farm,’’

Donald says.

‘‘You have to watch them all the time

The on­farmauction, held on January 13,

saw mostly two and three year old stags for

velvet and trophy operations go under the

hammer, aswell as some yearling Hinds.

It was followed by abarbecue gathering.

Donald says it was ‘‘a good average sale’’

but pleasing.

His top price on the day went to atwo

year old velvet or trophystag which went for

$10,500.

There were around 30 people on farm but

a few unable to attend were bidding by

phone.

He said the industry was facing some

future difficulty with few young farmers

coming up through the ranks.

He has three children; two adult daughters

and a young son with new partner,

Diana, but was unsure if any of them would

take over the operation.

He thought the lack of future deer

farmers was not helped by tightening

regulations around farming practices and a

push to be the best globally.

He felt farming wouldbebetterserved by

being targeted to the consumer and involve

doing what was needed.

‘‘We don’t mind red­tape but it’s got to

be common­sense and user friendly.’’

It is an increasedforecast of 25

Synlait’s decision to increaseits

by itsview that globaldairy prices

willremain around currentlevels for

the remainder of themilkseason.

Synlaitchiefexecutive officer

Freshwater’s

unfair twist

Freshwater proposals will reward the highest

nitrogen leaching operations and penalise farming

systems with the lightest environmental touch,

says Beef+LambNZ (B+LNZ) chief executive

officer Sam McIvor.

It’sanissuedraised by non­government organisations

in environment, health, recreation, and water

infrastructure fields during a combined ‘Healthy

Water Healthy Future’ statement and echoed the

perspectives ofB+LNZ sheep and beef farmers.

Mr McIvor said feedback from more than 3,000

sheep andbeef farmers, who had attended dozens of

freshwater meetings, was similar to those in the

Healthy Water Healthy Future statement.

‘‘Our farmers support the intent of the government’s

proposals and are working to address the

sheep and beef sector’s specific issues. We support

effective freshwater policies and the need for clear,

science­based environmental bottom lines that

protect human and ecological health, as well as

frameworks that empowerfarmersand communities

to work together toachieve these,’’ he said.

‘‘The main concerns that have been raised by

sheep and beef farmers are that the current

proposals would reward the highest nitrogen

leaching operations and penalise the farming

systems with the lightest environmental touch. We

are pleased that environmental groups have also

raised this as an area that needs to be changed, and

that they also agree that farm plans should not be

used asregulatory tools.

‘‘Feedback from B+LNZ’s meetings show farmersare

committedtoimprovingthe healthofNew

Zealand’s rivers and support the ultimate water

quality goals ofthe government’s proposals, but are

concerned that astraight­jacket, through arange of

‘‘grandparenting provisions’’, is beingplaced on lowemitters

­including most sheep and beef farmers ­

to mitigate against the impacts of high emitters. He

said the Government was, ineffect, placing high

costs the most environmentally sustainable and low

impact farming systems.

The freshwater proposals may lock in existing

land uses for five years, but the flow on impacts for

productivity,land values, and farm succession would

endure far beyond that, he said.

‘‘It’s grandparenting of existing discharge rights,

irrespective ofimpact, and we struggle tosee how

the Government can see it otherwise, as these

proposals would prevent the small changes in

farming systems onlow­emitting farms that would

be needed tooffset the additional costs tocomply

with other parts ofthe proposed regulations.’’

B+LNZ hoped to work with the Government to

get results that met environmentalneeds, but ‘‘more

fairly reflects the impacts that various farming

systems are having onNew Zealand’s freshwater

quality’’.

Gloves on for fight night

Corporate fighters are being sought to

take part in amixed discipline boxing

event event in Ashburton in June.

It will involve weeks of intensive

training, national body registration

and suit men and women of all ages.

Ri Ra Events promoter Gary

Manning, of Garage Box, said the idea

is to get corporate and companies on

board to put forward employees and

support the event.

He would like to see an inter­firm,

or professional rivalry, component in

the matches which could see seed

company versus seed company,

builder versus builder or car sales

company versus car sales company

battling it out on the night.

Those training will also get the

chance to train with former

professional boxer Shane Cameron

and professional Sam Watt. The duo

will also make appearances at the

event; Cameron as aspecial guest and

Watts in the professional boxing bout.

He will fight against Clarence Tillman.

The red carpet event, to be held at

the Ashburton Trust Event Centre on

June 13, includes one professional

bout, seven corporate boxing bouts

and three showcase combat sports

boxing bouts.

There will also be an auction, with

donated goods of signed boxing gloves

from Shane Cameron and Sam Watt,

and Crusaders rugby product already

received. However Mr Manning said

any other business or individual who

would like to donate items would be

welcome to get in touch through the

fightnightsouth website.

The proceeds raised through the

auction will be donated to White

Ribbon.

‘‘It’s agreat night’s entertainment.’’

He said no experience was

necessary for novice fighters but the

event would be regulated under New

Zealand Professional Boxing

Association corporate and

professional rules.

Ideally he would like 14 corporate

fighters for the seven bouts but a

couple of extra fighters was also likely

just in case of injury ahead of the

event. So far there are half adozen

fighters already signed up.

‘‘You have to have alternatives so

there is an option for two spare belts,’’

he said.

Fighters will train alongside

experienced trainers for 12 weeks and,

if up to scratch at the end, be placed

into matches on Fight Night against

other fighters of similar skill.

Regardless of experience they all do

the same training programme which

followed strict safety processes.

Softballer Kate hones

skills in Hutt Valley

By Linda Clarke

Top Mid Canterbury softballer

Kate Flanagan is plying her trade

in Wellington.

The Ashburton College

student was encouraged to move

to the city byformer White Sox

captain and coach Naomi Shaw,

who is connected to the Hutt

Valley Saints Club.

Kate, 18, had been hoping to

play softball at an American

college, but ankle surgery last

August ruled out any chance of

building arecruitment video to

impress college coaches. She has

opted instead for a gap year

working in Wellington and

playing softball under the eye of

Shaw and her daughter Kiri, also

aWhite Sox.

Kate, apitcher, said ligament

damage in herankleneeded to be

fixed through surgery.

‘‘SoIwas kinda stuck with what

to do after Ileftschool,asIwasn’t

sure what Iwanted to study.’’

After consulting with the

Shaws, she decided to head to

Wellington and the Saints club in

time for the 2019­2020 season,

which started late October.

JustacoupleofYear 13 exams

stood in her way.

‘‘I decided to go straight up

after Ihad finishedschool but this

meant Ihad to do my examsupin

Wellington, so I organised to

change my exams up there

through the school and sat them

at Wellington College.

‘‘So I finished school on

‘‘I don’t really know where I

want to go from here, but Iam

just happy playing out the season

and soaking up Wellington life

until Iknow the next step.’’

Kate said her biggest achievement

so far had been getting into

Transforming education

It’s that time of year whenthe summer

The cost of uniforms, school lunches

This Government is working hard to

reducethis strain, and the financial

here in Ashburton, providing amuchneededboost

to ensure all children

and young people who needabit of

extra help get the support they need.

Building quality learning

environments is amajor priority for

this Government. Making our school’s

great places to learn not only benefits

those working and learning in them

but it alsocreates jobs up and down

the country.

The combination of these changes

will makeahuge difference to

students, their families, and local

communities. It makes me proud to be

part of aGovernment thatisfocused

on education and easingthe burden

for families.Ihave always maintained

that education is the one thing that

overcomes every disadvantage with

which achild mightbegin life.

Whether it is first, second, or third

chanceeducation, it remains themost

transformative influence in our lives,

and that transformation benefits

everybody.

Iwish all of our local Mid

Cantabrian students and teachers the

very bestfor the yearahead and Ilook

forward to visiting morelocal schools.

It is one of my favouritepartsofthe

job, meeting principals and teachers,

being asked questions by students,

and seeingthe brilliant learning and

educationthat is happening here in

Rangitata.

Nineteen golfers survived the heat at the Ashburton Golf Club on Sunday

in the annual shootout, with Dave Hewitt eventually emerging as the winner.

The golfer with the worst score dropped out each hole (a careful calculation

of handicap and sometimes requiring aputt off) and when it came to the

18th, Hewitt and Bev Chinn remained. Last year’s runner-up, Hewitt claimed

the Property Brokers Shootout title after atense putt off.

Coal boiler to go

The coal boiler at Ashburton Hospital

will be replaced as part of a

decarbonisation project aimed at

preparing the hospital for the future.

The job was among anew $12 billion

Government programme to build and

upgrade roads, rail, schools and

hospitals announced yesterday, says

Labour MP Jo Luxton.

She said the New Zealand Upgrade

Programme was boosting growth today

and into the future by making targeted

investments around the country,

supporting businesses and local

communities.

“We’re modernising our child and

maternity service because we’re

determined to make New Zealand the

best place in the world to be achild. And

we’re making Ashburton Hospital more

modern and sustainable.

“The health facilities across

Canterbury need an upgrade, so we're

providing one. These new and better

facilities will better support patient

needs, and will help to meet future

MP Jo Luxton

demands.

The projects approved for the Mid

and South Canterbury region included

upgrades for schools, child and

maternity refurbishment, new boilers at

Timaru Hospital and the coal boiler

conversion at Ashburton Hospital.
