Ministry<br />

won’tpay<br />

for tyres<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Funding is putting thebrakes on<br />

removing the stockpile of old tyres on the<br />

outskirtsofAmberley.<br />

Alandowner request to the Ministry<br />

for the Environment for funding from the<br />

WasteMinimisationFund to help<br />

remove the tyres has failed.<br />

The ministry saysthe situation does<br />

not meetits criteria.<br />

Environment<strong>Canterbury</strong>’s northern<br />

zone manager, Andrew Arps, says ECan<br />

shares the community’s concernabout<br />

the risks posed by the tyres, but funding<br />

is the biggest challenge.<br />

Courtaction is ongoing, and<br />

discussions are continuing with the<br />

landowner.<br />

‘‘It is adifficult situation for the<br />

landowner, due to the failure of the<br />

companies that put the tyres on the<br />

property to comply with acourt orderto<br />

remove them by December 31, <strong>20</strong>18,’’ Mr<br />

Arps says.<br />

‘‘Thelandownerhas worked closely<br />

with us throughoutthis process, has been<br />

proactiveininvestigating solutions to<br />

this issue, and has already taken<br />

responsibility for the remediation of the<br />

contaminated material at the site that<br />

resulted fromthe fire in <strong>February</strong> <strong>20</strong>18.’’<br />

Removal of the tyres has been<br />

intermittent sincethe late­<strong>20</strong>18 deadline,<br />

and ECan continues to monitorthe<br />

number of tyresbeing trucked away.<br />

‘‘To date, we estimatemore than 40,000<br />

tyreshave beenremoved.’’<br />

He says balingand exporting tyres is<br />

the favoured disposal option. Other<br />

options were moreexpensive.<br />

Hurunui District Councilchief<br />

executive officer Hamish Dobbie says no<br />

proposal has been put to council to<br />

formallyconsider funding for the issue.<br />

It is following the progress of the ECan<br />

legalprocessand believes it provides the<br />

solution.<br />

Charred riverbed could aid birdlife<br />

By RACHEL MACDONALD<br />

The bed of the Ashley­Rakahuri River,<br />

scarred by recent fires, provides an<br />

opportunity to establish bird­friendly<br />

wetlands and rid alarge area of pests.<br />

Ashley­Rakahuri RivercareGroup<br />

spokesman Nick Ledgardsays the recent<br />

fireshave stripped pests of theircover<br />

and exposed natural springs. It provides<br />

an opportunity to clear and plant the<br />

area properly, and create wetlands.<br />

The fires havecleared the grasses and<br />

weeds, without affecting the channels<br />

and waterflow, and he is eagertomove<br />

quickly beforethe ‘‘firefodder’’reestablishes.<br />

‘‘If this chancewere taken to tidy<br />

things up after the fires, we couldcreate<br />

natural habitats that would attract all<br />

kindsofbirds.<br />

‘‘It has been along­term goaltosee if<br />

we couldcoax species like the blackstilt<br />

and spoonbill backtothe riverbed,<br />

estuary, and Tuhaitara wetlands,’’ he<br />

says.<br />

‘‘We haveproposalsbeingconsidered<br />

by the DepartmentofConservation, but<br />

this is the ideal time to act, before the<br />

gorsegrows back.’’<br />

Nick says the group is hoping there<br />

mightbeanopportunitytotalk to<br />

Environment<strong>Canterbury</strong>about what<br />

happens next.<br />

The rivercare grouplost 37 of its <strong>20</strong>0<br />

vermin trapstothe fires.<br />

‘‘We’re constantly fundraising as it is,<br />

to protectthe birds, and we haven’tyet<br />

had achance to look at thecost of<br />

replacements,’’ Nick says.<br />

‘‘We’ll have to explore how we’regoing<br />

to makethat happen, and quickly enough<br />

to stayontop of the pests.’’<br />

He says the fires have had little effect<br />

on the birdlife, as theireggs had hatched<br />

and fledglings had left their nests.<br />

Major threats to the river birds on the<br />

Ashleyare hedgehogs, followed by rats,<br />

cats, stoats and weasels.<br />

These are targetedusing Department<br />

of Conservationbox traps, with asteel<br />

trap mechanism inside, whichthe group<br />

and as amoney­earner.<br />

It also usesTimmstraps, which are<br />

Recyclers need to do better<br />

Frustrating ... Cust publican Tommy<br />

Dick with one of the wheelbarrow wheels<br />

wrongly put in the cardboard bin at the<br />

village’s recycling hub.<br />

By RACHEL MACDONALD<br />

When is cardboard quite obviously not<br />

cardboard? When it’s awheelbarrow<br />

wheel, obviously.<br />

Cust publican Tommy Dick has been<br />

going beyond the call of duty to try to<br />

ensure the village retains its recycling<br />

skips, part of atrial that is under<br />

threat from people simply not reading,<br />

or caring about, the instructions<br />

beside the bins.<br />

Given that those instructions are<br />

quite simple, he questions why people<br />

are dumping rubbish where it’s not<br />

supposed to be.<br />

He has found himself retrieving<br />

polystyrene and rubbish bags from the<br />

cardboard bin, as well as two<br />

wheelbarrow wheels.<br />

There was even acarton of beer<br />

bottles in there last week, despite the<br />

fact the bottles could easily have been<br />

tipped into the skip next door,<br />

labelled for that purpose, and the<br />

carton flattened and left where it was.<br />

during the closure, so repairwork<br />

could begin. Themainchallenge of the<br />

projectiskeepingthe roadopen while<br />

work is completed,hesays.<br />

TheBailey bridge willbeused for the<br />

next two months to ensureminimal<br />

road closures.<br />

“Everytimeweclose the bridgeit’s a<br />

40­minute detour,sowe’vedesigned<br />

thewholeproject to minimisethose<br />

road closures and limit the effectithas<br />

on the community.”<br />

Allwork on thebridge is expected to<br />

be completed by June.<br />

Horse pursuits draw overseas students<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Horse riding is proving to be a<br />

major drawcard for European<br />

students to study in Rangiora.<br />

Rangiora High School<br />

international director Melissa<br />

Heyrink says the new school<br />

year started with 52<br />

international students, with<br />

another eight arriving over the<br />

next few weeks.<br />

The majority are attracted by<br />

the opportunity to work with<br />

horses, with the largest<br />

contingent from Germany.<br />

‘‘We are very full this year for<br />

European enrolments. We have<br />

more than ever,’’ she says.<br />

‘‘We are becoming very<br />

popular for our equine<br />

opportunities, such as having<br />

equine studies as aschool<br />

subject, horse­riding lessons,<br />

and they play polo on aFriday<br />

morning.<br />

‘‘And they can live with ahost<br />

family which has horses, so<br />

they can ride daily and look<br />

after them.’’<br />

She says the German students<br />

tend to be ‘‘very goalorientated’’.<br />

‘‘They know what they want<br />

to do and quickly immerse<br />

themselves in the local<br />

community.<br />

‘‘We work with more than 25<br />

agents in Germany and it just<br />

keeps growing and growing.’’<br />

German students Alina Prein<br />

and Hanna Vowmers have<br />

spent two terms in Rangiora as<br />

part of aone­year stay.<br />

‘‘It’s really nice. It’s kind of<br />

different. The culture is<br />

different, but not so different<br />

because it’s still aWestern<br />

country,’’ Alina says.<br />

‘‘I miss home, but I’m happy<br />

to go back in July. It’s nice to be<br />

here.’’<br />

The pair say football,<br />

handball and equestrian<br />

pursuits are major sports back<br />

home, but rugby and netball are<br />

new to them.<br />

Alina comes from Germany’s<br />

capital, Berlin, acity of around<br />

3.8 million people, while Hanna<br />

comes from avillage of <strong>20</strong>00<br />

people in the coastal region of<br />

Ostfriesland in northwest<br />

Germany.<br />

Lured by horses ... International<br />

students Hanna Vowmers, left,<br />

aged 17, Ismael Markria, 15, and<br />

Alina Prein, 16, are enjoying their<br />

time at Rangiora High School.<br />

PHOTO: DAVID HILL<br />

Hana says she misses her two<br />

horses at home, while Alina has<br />

regular riding lessons back in<br />

Germany, but not during school<br />

time.<br />

‘‘It’s so cool to be able to ride<br />

ahorse at school and Ienjoy my<br />

host family with two young kids<br />

and adog,’’ Hanna says.<br />

Ismael Markria comes from<br />

Lyon in southeast France and<br />

has ahorse back home, though<br />

riding at school is anew<br />

experience.<br />

He has also been in Rangiora<br />

for two terms as part of aoneyear<br />

exchange.<br />

‘‘It’s pretty cool. Icame to<br />

learn English and Iwasn’t<br />

expecting to find all these<br />

horses, so I’ve been really<br />

lucky.’’<br />

Ismael says he follows rugby<br />

in France, so the adjustment<br />

has not been too major.<br />

Around the electorate with<br />

STUART SMITH MP FOR KAIKOURA<br />

Benefits of free trade<br />

Irecently had the pleasure of meeting<br />

renowned economist Bjorn Lomberg to<br />

discuss how to best spend our money to<br />

combat some of the pressing concerns<br />

we face today.<br />

Bjorn is president of the Copenhagen<br />

Consensus Centre and is considered<br />

one of the most influential people in<br />

the world.<br />

The centre is athink tank of more<br />

than 300 economists from<br />

internationally renowned institutions.<br />

It researches and publishes the<br />

smartest solutions to the world's biggest<br />

problems.<br />

He is astrong advocate of removing<br />

trade barriers and here is why.<br />

Over the next 15 years, the<br />

international community will spend<br />

more than $US2.5 trillion on<br />

development.<br />

In September <strong>20</strong>15, the world’s 193<br />

governments established 17<br />

sustainable development goals made<br />

up of 169 priorities to achieve<br />

sustainable economic, social and<br />

environmental development globally<br />

by <strong>20</strong>30.<br />

According to Bjorn’s analysis, these<br />

governments have promised too much<br />

by failing to assess these targets in<br />

value­for­money terms.<br />

As we have seen repeatedly all over<br />

the world, fewer trade restrictions can<br />

lift incomes and reduce poverty.<br />

Bjorn showed us economic models<br />

which show that asuccessful reduction<br />

of trade barriers like that which hoped<br />

to be achieved from the Doha Round of<br />

multilateral trade talks could have<br />

added $US11 trillion to global gross<br />

domestic product by <strong>20</strong>30.<br />

That is $US1000 more for each person<br />

in the developing world every year,<br />

which could lift 160 million people out<br />

of poverty.<br />

Bjorn estimates that for every dollar<br />

we spend on reducing world trade<br />

restrictions, we get a$US<strong>20</strong>11 return.<br />

Yet spending our budgets on making<br />

improvements to health, technology or<br />

preventing illegal financial flows<br />

results in far less environmental, social<br />

and economic value per dollar spent.<br />

Removing trade barriers is also<br />

essential for New Zealand’s agriculture<br />

industry and economy moving forward.<br />

However, the World Trade<br />

Organisation rules on agricultural<br />

trade are not as well developed or<br />

effective as the rules for trade in<br />

industrial goods.<br />

Many countries retain arange of<br />

barriers to agricultural imports, such<br />

as high tariffs and tariff quotas.<br />

New Zealand's agricultural exports<br />

frequently come up against these<br />

barriers and also have to compete<br />

against products that enjoy subsidies.<br />

This can put our farmers at a<br />

significant disadvantage in ahighly<br />

competitive market.<br />

We need to move toward creating a<br />

more fair and market­oriented<br />

agricultural trading system.<br />

Agricultural exporters should be able<br />

to benefit from the same opportunities<br />

in world markets that industrial goods<br />

enjoy.<br />

Achieving these objectives would<br />

make asignificant contribution to<br />

achieving economic, social and<br />

environmental development by<br />

providing considerable benefits for<br />

developing nations as well as our<br />

farmers and our economy.<br />

Bike ride for Seaweek<br />

Rangers at the TuhaitaraCoastal Park<br />

in Waimakariri will host a14km<br />

mountainbike ride through the park as<br />

part of Seaweek next month.<br />

The ride will be held on Sunday,<br />

March1,starting at WoodendBeach<br />

Domain at 3.30pm, and finishing backat<br />

the domain at 6.30pm.<br />

This year, Seaweek —New Zealand’s<br />

nationalcelebrationofthe sea—begins<br />

on Saturday, <strong>February</strong> 29, and ends on<br />

Sunday, March8.<br />

Seaweek,which addressesour<br />

understanding andconcerns about the<br />

sea, is hostedbythe New Zealand<br />

Association for Environmental<br />

Education. It also focuses on learning<br />

from the sea and aims to excite and<br />

inspire New Zealanderstorenew their<br />

connections with the ocean.<br />

Funding challenges<br />

Why is it so hard to fix an identified<br />

need?<br />

Last year, anetwork of social services<br />

called Together Hurunui completed a<br />

service­mapping exercise to identify a<br />

range of service providers that are<br />

currently being contracted, andare<br />

delivering to people in theHurunui<br />

District.<br />

Following the <strong>20</strong>16 earthquakes,<br />

services in our district increased<br />

significantly for alimited time, which<br />

gave us greater insight into what is<br />

required in our district and whatwould<br />

help those impacted by years of drought<br />

and other rural and social issues.<br />

This unmet need has been evidenced<br />

by some ofthe current providers, and<br />

support the desire to secure funding for<br />

adedicated family­based socialworker.<br />

We are grateful for the services we do<br />

have, but now understand the<br />

opportunity thatexists to do better.<br />

Ihave beenpart of aprocess to speak<br />

with current providers, potential<br />

funders, andcommunity members, all<br />

who support and understand the valueto<br />

well­being that this potential service<br />

would bring.<br />

Despite having the support and vision,<br />

it remains challenging to secure the<br />

funding and deliver the desired result,<br />

as the generic family social worker falls<br />

outside the scope of Oranga Tamariki<br />

Partnering for Outcomes and the<br />

Ministry of Social Development.<br />

We want to be able to help people<br />

early on to prevent themfrom requiring<br />

the specialised services that are on offer<br />

—tobethe ambulance at the top of the<br />

cliff, not the bottom.<br />

Iamworking with willing partiesto<br />

continue to voice our district’s need and<br />

will continue to do so until all avenues<br />

have been exhausted.<br />

Ican’t helpbut agree with the wordsof<br />

Kaikoura MP Stuart Smith in his recent<br />

column, who said: “We should take a<br />

social investment approach where social<br />

services are targeted at the people who<br />

need it most.’’<br />

Together Hurunuisocial services<br />

networking is collaborating in this<br />

space, but desires to do more.<br />

Together Hurunui is acollaborative<br />

and locally designed project whereby<br />

social services providers come together<br />

on abi­monthly basis to educate,<br />

collaborate, andinformtowards abetter<br />

community.<br />

Our vision is: “Thatall people in the<br />

Hurunui are valued and connected.”<br />

SH1 upgrades needed now<br />

That Woodendneeds abypass on<br />

State Highway 1isnot in question.<br />

What is in question is why are the<br />

safetymeasures desperately needed<br />

on StateHighway 1not alreadyin<br />

place?Irefertocontrolled<br />

intersections at WoodendRoad and<br />

the Rangiora­Woodend Road, as well<br />

as centre­line refugesfor pedestrians<br />

at eachbus stop.<br />

The bypass willtake aminimumof<br />

5to7yearstobuild; the safety<br />

improvements shouldhave been built<br />

prior to Ravenswood being<br />

populated.<br />

All sorts of bureaucraticexcuses<br />

are made as to why these<br />

improvements are not alreadyin<br />

place.<br />

However,Waimakariri MP Matt<br />

Doocey and the WaimakaririDistrict<br />

Council’s politicalhand­wringing<br />

over lack of progress on the bypass<br />

mightcarry alot more weight if action<br />

on the SH1 safety improvementshad<br />

been implemented acouple of years<br />

ago.<br />

Of course,the much­needed safety<br />

improvements would not pleasethe<br />

road transport industry —major<br />

sponsors of the National Party.<br />

School roll at record<br />

as rebuild finishes<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

When Bruce Kearney took over as<br />

principal in <strong>20</strong>12, Kaiapoi High School<br />

had around 100 year 9pupils.<br />

Eight years later, the school has<br />

started the new year with 2<strong>20</strong> year 9<br />

students, with enrolments still trickling<br />

in.<br />

The school roll has<br />

ballooned from 550 in<br />

<strong>20</strong>12 to arecord 930 this<br />

year, meaning anew<br />

building project may be<br />

just around the corner.<br />

‘‘Our rebuild is finally<br />

complete. We’ve had our<br />

two new buildings fitted<br />

with air conditioning over<br />

the holidays, which has<br />

made amassive<br />

difference,’’ Mr Kearney<br />

says.<br />

‘‘When we planned our<br />

rebuild Ididn’t think we<br />

would get to our maximum roll of 1100<br />

students, but if we keep growing at the<br />

same rate we will get there in another<br />

five or six years.’’<br />

Fortunately, there is provision for<br />

stage two in the school’s redevelopment<br />

plans should the roll continue to grow.<br />

He says the roll growth reflects the<br />

ongoing population growth in Kaiapoi,<br />

Woodend, Pegasus, Clarkville and<br />

Ohoka, and the fact the school is ‘‘now<br />

the school of choice for the community’’.<br />

Meanwhile, the school has $400,000 to<br />

spend as part of the government’s school<br />

investment package announced late last<br />

year.<br />

‘‘We’re not 100 percent sure what we<br />

Bruce Kearney<br />

are allowed to spend it on, but I<br />

understand it is more around<br />

beautification,’’ Mr Kearney says.<br />

‘‘It will allow us to do the things that<br />

schools haven’t been able to do in the<br />

past.’’<br />

Top of the wishlist will be ‘‘softening<br />

the edges’’around the central courtyard<br />

and landscaping around the whare.<br />

‘‘It’s really cool. Schools<br />

never get money like this<br />

to soften their<br />

environment, so we are<br />

really excited.’’<br />

Mr Kearney says the<br />

school had asuccessful<br />

<strong>20</strong>19, with ‘‘outstanding’’<br />

NCEA results for its<br />

‘‘mainstream roll’’, with<br />

pass rates of 93.3 percent<br />

at level one, 92% at level<br />

two and 83% at level three.<br />

He believes these<br />

compare favourably with<br />

most other schools around<br />

New Zealand.<br />

‘‘We are really proud of that. They are<br />

strong results and it comes down to the<br />

quality of the teaching.<br />

‘‘At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter<br />

how good your buildings are, it comes<br />

back to the quality of your teachers.’’<br />

He says <strong>20</strong><strong>20</strong> is shaping to be busy,<br />

with the school involved in Waitangi Day<br />

and Anzac Day events, and visiting local<br />

resthomes.<br />

‘‘What makes me even more proud is<br />

that there aren’t that many community<br />

schools left and we immerse ourselves in<br />

our community.<br />

‘‘Anytime anyone in the community<br />

needs anything, we are there for them.’’<br />

Six parts ... Aconcept being considered for the Soldiers’ Block.<br />

IMAGE: SUPPLIED<br />

Block work could cost $7.3m<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Redevelopment of the Soldiers’ Block<br />

in the Queen Mary Hospital Reserve<br />

at Hanmer Springs could cost about<br />

$7 million.<br />

Aproject is being considered that<br />

would offer six spaces in the block.<br />

Work is under way to explore how to<br />

fund it.<br />

The Hurunui District Council has<br />

been working with the Soldiers’ Block<br />

steering committee and Heritage New<br />

Zealand to develop the multi­use sixin­one<br />

proposal.<br />

The six proposed spaces are: a<br />

commercial and creative shared hub;<br />

acommunity space for hire; awar<br />

experience and cafe area; afunction<br />

space with acommercial kitchen; a<br />

movie theatre; and temporary<br />

accommodation and amanager’s flat.<br />

The estimated cost would be $7.3m,<br />

meaning asignificant amount of<br />

funding would need to be sought.<br />

Councillors and staff, keenly aware<br />

of acommunity desire to see the block<br />

restored, are looking at developing a<br />

business case which will consider the<br />

financial implications of the multi­use<br />

model and appropriate ways to<br />

optimise return on the investment.<br />

Chief strategy and community<br />

officer Judith Batchelor says it may<br />

seem like there is nothing happening<br />

on the project, but the cost and scale of<br />

it requires careful planning to make<br />

sure its development did not become a<br />

burden on ratepayers.<br />

She says it may be possible to apply<br />

to Lotteries for two­thirds of the<br />

necessary capital. ‘‘But, in order to do<br />

this, we first need to confirm where<br />

the final third would be coming from.’’<br />

Festival guarantees acolour splash<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

Rangiora’s Festival of Colour<br />

will return to Victoria Park next<br />

month for another blast of<br />

colour, fun, live entertainment,<br />

cultural performances and food.<br />

Waikuku band Funk and<br />

Disorderly will be playing on the<br />

day and there will also be a<br />

performance from the Kaiapoi<br />

<strong>North</strong> School Kapa Haka Group,<br />

which will open the festival.<br />

Rangiora’s third colour<br />

festival will be held on Sunday,<br />

March 29, starting at 10am. It<br />

will also feature artwork in the<br />

MainPower Art competition.<br />

Entries for this competition<br />

close on Friday, March <strong>20</strong>.<br />

There are two categories, a<br />

colouring­in competition for<br />

under 6­year­olds and an open<br />

competition for everyone else,<br />

with $500 worth of cash and<br />

prizes to be won.<br />

The festival is apopular<br />

family day out, which has<br />

attracted between 2500 and 3000<br />

people to Rangiora each year.<br />

Organiser Karl Horwarth is<br />

hoping for another big crowd at<br />

this year’s event.<br />

‘‘It is alot of fun, with great<br />

food, music, performances,<br />

colour blasts and people<br />

throwing colour powder over<br />

each other.<br />

‘‘I love seeing families<br />

throwing colour on each other.<br />

The parents always get covered<br />

the most,’’ he said.<br />

The festival will again be a<br />

fundraiser for Big Brothers Big<br />

Sisters (BBBs) of <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong>.<br />

After last year’s event, $<strong>20</strong>00<br />

was donated to the charity.<br />

‘‘BBBS do such an amazing<br />

job in <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong>,<br />

mentoring young people and we<br />

felt it was agreat fit with the<br />

colour festival, which is so<br />

popular with families,’’ Karl<br />

said.<br />

‘‘This year we are also raising<br />

money for Ronald McDonald<br />

House, which also does a<br />

fantastic job helping families, so<br />

we wanted to help them this<br />

year as well.’’<br />

There will also be many<br />

market stalls in the park for the<br />

festival, including food and<br />

crafts, health and holistic<br />

practitioners, plus cultural<br />

performances from drumming<br />

groups and the Hubei Chinese<br />

Cultural group.<br />

Packets of colour powder for<br />

throwing can be bought at<br />

McDonald’s Rangiora to raise<br />

money for Ronald McDonald<br />

House.<br />

McDonald’s will also provide<br />

afree photo booth on the day.<br />

The colour packs can also be<br />

purchased at PAK’nSAVE<br />

supermarket in Rangiora to<br />

raise funds for Big Brothers Big<br />

Sisters of <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong>.<br />

Ohoka base for gallery<br />

Internationally acclaimed artist Min Kim<br />

has movedher Bryce Gallery from its<br />

former busy location in Riccarton to a<br />

tranquil place at her new home in Ohoka.<br />

Min decidedtomake the move withher<br />

husband, landscape artist Jaimie<br />

Stewart, last year after losing her ‘‘inner<br />

peace’’and becoming ill.<br />

‘‘My immune systemwas broken from<br />

too much hard work and Irealised I<br />

needed abetter space,’’ she said.<br />

The couple began searching for anew<br />

property lastChristmas and found a<br />

magicalplace at Ohoka,wherepeople<br />

have been ‘‘welcoming and friendly.’’<br />

At first, she worried thatifthey moved<br />

from the central city theymightlose<br />

visitornumbers. Thathasn’t happened.<br />

People havesaid theylove visiting the<br />

new gallery, set in the peaceful park­like<br />

surrounds, and have been positiveabout<br />

the initiative.<br />

‘‘New clients, old clients, they love it<br />

here and want to comeback. Iwant to<br />

create thatkind of spacewhereyou feel<br />

like you are visiting afriend.<br />

‘‘Art should be an emotional<br />

experience.’’<br />

At the new gallery,where ‘‘90 percent<br />

of the houseisgallery and 10% is home’’,<br />

visitors can relax, enjoy the peaceful<br />

settingand the beautiful way the art has<br />

been displayed in the house and garden.<br />

‘‘This is not just acommercial<br />

enterprise.Iwant people to appreciate<br />

their own time, their specialtime here.’’<br />

The art of morethan 45 of New<br />

Zealand’s emerging, established and<br />

leadingartists, including Min and Jaimie,<br />

is on displayfor saleinthe new gallery,<br />

which opened on <strong>February</strong> 1.<br />

Min is also an art tutor and holdsart<br />

workshops every two months. She has<br />

alreadyheld severalworkshopsather<br />

new art sanctuary and is looking forward<br />

to sharing her new home withmore<br />

people in the future.<br />

She also plans to hold aticketed<br />

outdoorclassical music concert<br />

and art collaboration in the garden for<br />

this autumn.<br />

Crucial link ... The new Wandle Bridge, which opened recently, replaced atemporary<br />

Bailey Bridge.<br />

PHOTOS: SUPPLIED<br />

New bridge hailed as<br />

abig step forward<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Anew bridgenorth of Waiau,in<strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong>, is now open,four monthsafter<br />

construction began.<br />

It replaces the old bridge overthe<br />

Wandle River, on the InlandRoad/Route<br />

70 between Waiau and Peketa/Kaikoura.<br />

The original bridgewas badlydamaged<br />

in the November, <strong>20</strong>16 earthquake. A<br />

temporaryBailey bridge filledthe gap.<br />

The road and its many repairs havebeen<br />

managed and funded by the Transport<br />

Agency's <strong>North</strong><strong>Canterbury</strong> Transport<br />

InfrastructureRecovery (NCTIR)alliance.<br />

The new build began last September and<br />

its recent opening was markedwith a<br />

ceremony attended by Hurunui District<br />

Council staff and theNCTIRalliance<br />

engineers and workers who delivered the<br />

project.<br />

New Zealand Transport Agency NCTIR<br />

manager Colin Knaggs says the Inland<br />

Road/Route 70 is vital for oversize<br />

vehicles, whichcannottravelonState<br />

Highway 1southofKaikoura overthe<br />

Hundalees. It also providesanalternative<br />

route to and from Kaikourafor roadusers<br />

in an emergency —something the <strong>20</strong>16<br />

earthquake made very real for residents.<br />

In addition to earthquake repairwork,<br />

$10m was allocated by the agency forroad<br />

improvements.<br />

Hurunui District Councilchief<br />

executive Hamish Dobbiedescribedthe<br />

road as akey piece of infrastructure.<br />

‘‘To have abrand new bridge here is a<br />

big step forward.’’<br />

All workonthe road is expected to be<br />

completed by July, when it will be handed<br />

back to the Hurunui District Councilfor<br />

ongoing managementand maintenance.<br />

Busy start for river cruiser<br />

The KaiapoiRiver Queen is set to make a<br />

fleeting appearance at the Kaiapoi River<br />

Carnival and Boat Show.<br />

The cruise boat,launchedinNovember,<br />

will be operatingduring the carnival on<br />

Sunday, March 1, so willmake only abrief<br />

appearanceatits berth outside the Port &<br />

EagleBrewpub,unless you haveaticket<br />

forone of the two cruisesonthe day.<br />

Operators Dennis and Judith<br />

Andreassend say the River Queen hasbeen<br />

busy,making morethan 40 cruises sinceits<br />

firstonNovember 22.<br />

‘‘We’ve had lots of interest and we’ve got<br />

bookings for Marchthrough to June,’’<br />

Dennis says.‘‘We’ve had avarietyof<br />

groups, from school children to retired<br />

groups and walking groups. We’ve got alot<br />

of rest­home groupsbooked in, social<br />

groups and corporatebookings.’’<br />

Cruises are tide and weather dependent,<br />

meaning someweeks the RiverQueen<br />

rarely leaves its berth.<br />

Dennis says the boat is licensed for 99<br />

passengers, but casual cruises are usually<br />

Pair to soar over Kaiapoi River<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

There will be plenty of acrobatics on the<br />

Kaiapoi River next month.<br />

World champion flyboarder Gemma<br />

Weston and her brother Beau, both of<br />

Queenstown, will be demonstrating<br />

their sport at the Kaiapoi River Carnival<br />

and Boat Show on Sunday, March 1.<br />

‘‘I’m looking forward to it,’’ Gemma<br />

says.<br />

‘‘We will be putting on ashow with<br />

some choreographed moves and giving<br />

people an idea of what flyboarding looks<br />

like.<br />

‘‘Beau has some very cool moves, like<br />

dolphin dives, which Ihaven’t been able<br />

to master myself.’’<br />

While she has never flyboarded in<br />

Kaiapoi before, she has been assured<br />

the river is wider than the canals she has<br />

performed in during competitions in<br />

Europe.<br />

While Beau placed sixth in the <strong>20</strong>16<br />

European men’s championships,<br />

Gemma was the <strong>20</strong>15 world ladies<br />

champion and European ladies<br />

champion the following year.<br />

She placed second in the <strong>20</strong>16 world<br />

final, despite aserious injury.<br />

After athree­year recovery, she got<br />

back into flyboarding last year to<br />

perform in shows, which is much more<br />

Flying high ... World champion flyboarder<br />

lucrative than competitions.<br />

‘‘The shows are alot of fun and Ienjoy<br />

the crowd interaction, seeing the smiles<br />

and the wonderment at seeing you fly<br />

through the air.’’<br />

Gemma says flyboarding is not a<br />

dangerous sport to learn, as beginners<br />

have an instructor operating aunit like<br />

amodified jet ski to control their power.<br />

‘‘The risk factor increases when you<br />

get to the next level. It’s like riding a<br />

bike. There’s not much risk when you<br />

are learning to ride on the flat, but when<br />

you ride down amountain at speed there<br />

is arisk.’’<br />

Advanced flyboarders use awireless<br />

remote to control their speed and propel<br />

themselves through the air.<br />

When they are not flyboarding, the<br />

pair perform as stunt doubles and extras<br />

in movies and television shows.<br />

Both appeared in The Hobbit,with<br />

Beau playing an orc and Gemma playing<br />

agoblin and alakelander.<br />

She recently appeared in the Netflix<br />

series Vikings,filmed in Ireland, where<br />

‘‘I got paid to die’’.<br />

‘‘We get to do some big battle scenes<br />

where there’s lots of weaponry and<br />

carnage. All the things the actors aren’t<br />

allowed to do. No­one wants to see their<br />

actors get hurt.<br />

‘‘For guys it’s easier. My brother gets a<br />

lot more work, but he’s agood<br />

performer, he’s ahard worker and he’s<br />

got the build.’’<br />

Trust to run popular car gathering<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

The wheels of Rock’n’Wheels<br />

will continue to turn after<br />

gaining registration as an<br />

incorporated charitable<br />

trust.<br />

Katrina Platt, who has led<br />

the popular show for 10 years,<br />

says the trust will support<br />

cultural, sporting and<br />

educational causes in the<br />

Hurunui District with the<br />

funds raised.<br />

This will include schools,<br />

clubs and charitable groups,<br />

she says.<br />

Planning for the 10th<br />

anniversary of the show on<br />

Father’s Day, Sunday,<br />

September 6, at the Amberley<br />

Domain is well under way.<br />

It will be sticking to its<br />

popular formula of ‘‘if it has<br />

wheels, and you love it, bring<br />

it along’’.<br />

Katrina says the event is<br />

now well established, with<br />

many repeat exhibitors<br />

turning out.<br />

‘‘They say it’s afun day out<br />

in the country for car<br />

enthusiasts and agreat way to<br />

treat dad on Father’s Day,’’<br />

she says.<br />

Cars turning up to<br />

Rock’n’Wheels do not have to<br />

have apedigree, but many<br />

exhibitors have stories to tell<br />

about their beloved vehicle,<br />

Aday out withRuby ... Jamie Philpott, of Waikuku Beach, with his gleaming 1957Chevrolet Bel Air,Ruby,<br />

from how they came by it,<br />

plans for its restoration, or<br />

how long it took them to bring<br />

it back to its former glory.<br />

Atotal of 104 vehicles<br />

turned out to the first event.<br />

It has since grown, with up to<br />

500 vehicles often turning out<br />

in recent years.<br />

Katrina says she and her<br />

team are looking forward to<br />

working with like­minded<br />

groups and individuals to<br />

ensure that Rock’n’Wheels<br />

continues in the future.<br />

Pools upgrade<br />

lures visitors<br />

The opening of New Zealand's biggest<br />

waterslide at Hanmer Springs Thermal<br />

Poolsand Spa has helped the complex<br />

reachrecord visitor numbers.<br />

The pools complex was visited by just<br />

over 100,000 visitorsbetweenBoxing Day<br />

and January 31.<br />

General manager GraemeAbbot<br />

attributes the growthtothe openingof<br />

the Conical Thrillwater slide and five<br />

new thermalpools,known as The<br />

Cascades.<br />

‘‘Ever sinceweopened the new<br />

developmentsinNovember, we’ve<br />

noticed asignificant increase in visitors<br />

from not just<strong>Canterbury</strong>, but the <strong>North</strong><br />

Island and offshore markets.<br />

‘‘We knewthe new features would be<br />

popular but the fact visitornumbers are<br />

up 10 percent on theprevious summer<br />

has surprised us,’’ he says.<br />

He says the boost is not just good for<br />

the complex but the village and district.<br />

‘‘Thereality is, if people make the trip<br />

to our place,they stop and spendinother<br />

businesses and attractions alongthe way.<br />

‘‘We’ve been told the village’s<br />

restaurants, bars and other attractions<br />

are equally busy.’’<br />

The new features are the culmination<br />

of two yearsofwork and Mr Abbotsays<br />

the complex willnot restonits laurels.<br />

‘‘We havealso created anew AquaPlay<br />

area with waterslides and waterspouts<br />

for young children, with the finishing<br />

touches scheduled to be completedin<br />

March.’’<br />

Business is going swimmingly<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

Acar accident which left Valerie<br />

Nixon’s much­loved black<br />

labrador Dexter seriously<br />

injured wasthe catalystfor a<br />

canine water therapy business.<br />

Nature’s Way Pet Care was<br />

establishedfour yearsago and is<br />

runbyValerie at herhome in<br />

Balcairn, usingacustom­built<br />

pool to offer recovery and<br />

rehabilitationfor dogs after<br />

injury, surgery or illness.<br />

Thetherapy also helps dogs<br />

suffering fromhip and elbow<br />

dysplasia, osteoarthritis, cruciate<br />

ligament injuries, tendonitis,<br />

muscle sprains, and obesity.<br />

Dexter, arescuedog, was left<br />

paralysed in both back legs after<br />

inexplicably climbingout of the<br />

window of amoving car.<br />

‘‘It was avery warm day, so I<br />

hadthe back windowopen alittle<br />

more than usual,’’ Valerie said.<br />

‘‘Suddenly,hejust leaptout of<br />

thewindow.<br />

‘‘Istill don’t know whyhedid it.<br />

It was verytraumaticfor bothof<br />

us.<br />

‘‘Luckily, Iwasn’tgoingvery<br />

fast.’’<br />

Duetocomplications, Dexter<br />

spent almost aweek in hospital<br />

after the accident, resulting in<br />

considerable musclewastagein<br />

hisfront legs.<br />

During his rehabilitation,<br />

Valerie began taking Dextertoa<br />

dogswim spa in Christchurch.<br />

She saw immediatebenefits,<br />

withthe watertherapy<br />

rebuilding musclemass and<br />

improvingstrength in Dexter’s<br />

front legs,soshe eventually<br />

decided to get acustom­made<br />

pool built for Dexterattheir<br />

home.<br />

The hydrotherapy business has<br />

evolved from that decision, with<br />

word of mouthand veterinary<br />

recommendations spreading the<br />

word about the effectiveness of<br />

water therapy for dogs.<br />

‘‘I’m so grateful to have had<br />

such amazingsupport from the<br />

local vets,’’ Valerie said.<br />

She spent4 1 ⁄2years caring for<br />

Dexterafterthe accident but he<br />

died in October <strong>20</strong>18.<br />

‘‘ThisisDexter’slegacy;his gift<br />

to other injureddogs,’’ Valerie<br />

said.<br />

It is also aperfect business for<br />

Valerie, who no longer has adog<br />

of herown but canenjoy meeting<br />

and working with her clients’<br />

dogs.<br />

‘‘Animalsare my passion, with<br />

aspecial place in my heart for<br />

dogs.They give us so much love<br />

and companionship, it reallyisa<br />

Classics of all types to go under hammer<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Five years ago Andrew<br />

Bain, director of Bains<br />

Classic Motor House,<br />

held aclassic car,<br />

memorabilia and antique<br />

auction to reduce stock,<br />

as his business was on the<br />

move.<br />

The auction blew all<br />

expectations, and the<br />

auction house running<br />

the event suggested it<br />

become an annual affair.<br />

However, Andrew<br />

wasn’t keen, knowing the<br />

work involved and all his<br />

other commitments.<br />

However, he has now<br />

accepted the challenge,<br />

and another auction is<br />

being held at his new site<br />

in Balcairn on Sunday,<br />

<strong>February</strong> 23.<br />

‘‘I am extremely excited<br />

about the day.<br />

‘‘We are encouraging<br />

What’s changing?<br />

In response to regulatory changes, MainPower is adjustingthe balance between ‘fixed’ and‘variable’<br />

lines charges.Your electricity bill is madeupofseveral components,one ofwhichisthe cost of<br />

deliveringelectricitytoyour property viaMainPower’s network, aprocess knownasdistribution.<br />

The distribution cost accounts foraround27% ofyourtotalelectricitybilland is madeupofa<br />

combinationoffixedand variablecosts. MainPower’sdistribution charges need to betterreflect the<br />

actual cost of delivering electricitytocustomers. As MainPower’s costs arelargely fixed and not<br />

relatedtothe quantity of electricity consumed (e.g. our ongoingmaintenance programme, costsof<br />

transmissionpassed on fromTranspower), MainPower is adjusting the balancebetween the fixed<br />

and variable components.Effectively,from 1April<strong>20</strong><strong>20</strong>,the fixed portionwillform alarger portion of<br />

your distribution charge.<br />

Customersconnected to the former Kaiapoi Electricity network will have adiscountappliedtotheir<br />

AMURI A&P SHOW, MARCH 7<br />

Entries<br />

buoyant<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

More than 1000 entries had<br />

been received by Amuri A&P<br />

Association secretary Kim<br />

Balcombe when entries closed<br />

this week for the annual show<br />

at the Rotherham Domain.<br />

She says entries are<br />

particularly strong in the horse<br />

and sheep sections, with agood<br />

spread across the cooking,<br />

home industries, handcrafts,<br />

photography, art,<br />

woodchopping, and arable<br />

sections.<br />

Floral and vegetable entries,<br />

taken on show day, will further<br />

boost the entries.<br />

Kim, who is the clinic coordinator<br />

at <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

Veterinary Clinics in<br />

Culverden, has taken over as<br />

secretary this year.<br />

She says working fulltime<br />

and preparing for the show has<br />

been achallenge, but<br />

something she is enjoying<br />

doing for the community.<br />

As clinic co­ordinator, Kim is<br />

well known throughout the<br />

Amuri by dairy and sheep<br />

farmers, and is looking forward<br />

to meeting many of them at the<br />

show.<br />

She says alot of work goes on<br />

behind the scenes before the<br />

big day, and she is thrilled<br />

people have again supported<br />

the annual event through their<br />

entries in the various classes<br />

and competitions.<br />

Trans-Tasman rivalry put to test<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

SomeofAustralia's top<br />

woodchoppers are set to<br />

converge on the Amuri A&P<br />

Shownext month.<br />

An Australianveterans<br />

teamwill be competing<br />

against aNew Zealand<br />

selection, as part of afull<br />

day's woodchopping<br />

programmeatthe<br />

Rotherham Showgrounds on<br />

Saturday,March 7.<br />

OrganiserKelly Earl says<br />

he expects the Australians to<br />

put on agood display.<br />

“They might be getting<br />

older, but they're pretty<br />

sharp.<br />

‘‘There are some former<br />

Australian champsand some<br />

of them have competed<br />

internationally, so our<br />

younger guys will certainly<br />

be struggling to beat them.”<br />

Withthe SouthIsland<br />

championshipsbeing held in<br />

Invercargill the same<br />

weekend, Kelly admits<br />

putting together aNew<br />

Zealandteam to take on the<br />

Australianshas proveda<br />

challenge, but he has<br />

recruitedsome top <strong>North</strong><br />

Island choppers and a<br />

couple of locals.<br />

He says the Australians<br />

willbetaking on the New<br />

Zealandveteransteam the<br />

followingweekend, so the<br />

Amuri A&P Show allows the<br />

teamtoget some practice in<br />

and see abit moreofthe<br />

South Island.<br />

“They will be competitive,<br />

❛They might be<br />

getting older, but<br />

they're pretty<br />

sharp.❜<br />

—Kelly Earl<br />

don't worry about that,but<br />

it's moreofaninvitational<br />

thing.”<br />

While the Australian team<br />

will likely be more<br />

experienced than their New<br />

Zealand opponents, the<br />

competitors will be chopping<br />

“our wood”, giving the locals<br />

ahandy advantage.<br />

Woodchoppingwas first<br />

introduced to the Amuri<br />

A&P Show last year when it<br />

playedhost to the South<br />

Islandchampionships,and<br />

Kelly hopesthat hostingthe<br />

Australianveterans willhelp<br />

cementthe sport as an<br />

annualfixtureatthe show.<br />

“Threeyears ago afew of<br />

the local guys asked me if<br />

there was any chance we<br />

could get woodchoppingat<br />

the Amuri show.<br />

“It took abit of work to get<br />

it started, so hopefully we<br />

can keep it going becauseit's<br />

agreatsport and it's partof<br />

our New Zealand heritage.”<br />

There willbeafull day's<br />

programmeof<br />

woodchopping from 9.30am<br />

to 4pm,including underhand<br />

chopping, the standing<br />

chop, tree­climbing and<br />

singleand double sawing.<br />

AMURI A&P SHOW, MARCH 7<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> <strong>News</strong>, <strong>February</strong> <strong>20</strong>, <strong>20</strong><strong>20</strong><br />

31<br />

Rodeo demonstration to feature<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Afast­paced rodeo<br />

demonstration features on the<br />

Amuri A&P Show programme<br />

for the first time this year.<br />

The idea is the brainchild of<br />

local cowboys William<br />

Jamieson and Tim Costello,<br />

who want people to enjoy<br />

quality competitors and<br />

bucking stock in ashort,<br />

entertaining show.<br />

They took the event to the<br />

Hawarden A& Pshow last year,<br />

but this year it will be afeature<br />

event at the Rotherham<br />

Domain during the Amuri A&P<br />

Show.<br />

Organiser Warren Armstrong<br />

says the event will follow the<br />

steer riding event that has been<br />

apopular feature at the show<br />

for about <strong>20</strong> years.<br />

It will be confined to just<br />

roughstock events —bareback,<br />

saddle bronc and bull­riding.<br />

He said Costello was the <strong>20</strong>19<br />

New Zealand champion saddle<br />

bronc rider, and he will be<br />

joined by several other top<br />

riders, who will all be riding<br />

Costello’s own team of bucking<br />

broncs.<br />

Jamieson will be providing<br />

the bulls, all raised in<br />

Hawarden, says Mr Armstrong.<br />

He says he is thrilled to have<br />

the rodeo demonstration on<br />

board, after helping out Colin<br />

Heslop with the steer riding<br />

event for many years, which<br />

had always been ahit.<br />

‘‘I was always keen to do a<br />

rodeo demonstration here. We<br />

❛Iwas always keen to<br />

do arodeo<br />

demonstration here.❜<br />

—Warren Armstrong<br />

have had aworking bee and<br />

improved acouple of the<br />

chutes. It is great to have these<br />

young guys on board,’’ Mr<br />

Armstrong says.<br />

He says several of them had<br />

cut their teeth on the steerriding<br />

event in Amuri as young<br />

fellows, and had then gone on to<br />

greater things.<br />

‘‘It’s great to have them back<br />

and giving something back to<br />

the community.’’<br />

The positive feedback from<br />

last year’s Hawarden event was<br />

great.<br />

Sisters with raw ambition<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Helping grow the country<br />

2250954<br />

Keeping it raw has changed the lives of<br />

two <strong>Canterbury</strong> sisters.<br />

Christchurch siblings Rosaand Margo<br />

Flanagan, also known as the Two Raw<br />

Sisters, wereatahit at lastNovember's<br />

New Zealand Agricultural Show.Now,<br />

they are coming to next month's Amuri<br />

A&P Show.<br />

The sisterswill bring their own unique<br />

styleofcooking with raw or whole foods —<br />

that is, food “as minimally processed as<br />

possible”, Margosays.<br />

“We welcome everyone into our kitchen.<br />

We haveaunique approach to plant­based<br />

food because we are not vegetarian or<br />

vegan.<br />

“It'sabout changing mindsets. In New<br />

Zealand, we have grownuponmeat and<br />

vegetables, so thisisaboutstartingwith<br />

the vegetables, like making alovely salad,<br />

and then you can add the meat if you<br />

want.”<br />

Margoadmits that“neverinour wildest<br />

dreams” did they expect to be makinga<br />

career out of food.<br />

Four years ago Rosa was an elite<br />

international athlete but was<br />

underweight, which led to several injuries,<br />

whileMargowas stillatschool and<br />

suffering from chronicfatigue syndrome.<br />

“I didn't know whatIwanted to do, but I<br />

knew that university wasn't for me,” Margo<br />

says.<br />

Whilesearching ‘‘plant­based foods’’ on<br />

the internet, Margo came across aspeech<br />

aboutplant­based foodsand discovered a<br />

course in Los Angeles.<br />

Cattle to be judged on-farm<br />

Cattle will be judged on­farm ahead of<br />

the Amuri A&P Show.<br />

Once again there will be no cattle<br />

classes at the Rotherham Showgrounds<br />

due to the ongoing challenges<br />

surrounding the Mycoplasma bovis<br />

outbreak.<br />

Instead, there will be on­farm beef<br />

and dairy cattle competitions held on<br />

“I knew my mum and dad wouldn'tlet<br />

their 18­year­old daughter go to the US<br />

alone,but Rosa was going to be running<br />

there so Iwent with her.”<br />

The pairspent four months in theUSin<br />

<strong>20</strong>17, studying at aworld­renowned raw<br />

plant­based culinary school in Los Angeles<br />

and theTwo Raw Sisters was born.<br />

They began doing workshops in mum<br />

and dad's kitchen,producing online<br />

cooking courses“for youngpeople and<br />

busy mums”, andattending “allthe food<br />

shows”. They have produced their own<br />

cookbook, whichhas sold 9000 copies in<br />

just four months.<br />

Recently,they opened their own kitchen<br />

in Christchurch,much to the relief of their<br />

parents.<br />

“We were pushing mum and dad out of<br />

the kitchen too many times, so Ithinkthey<br />

were pleased to see the back of us,”<br />

21­year­old Margo says.<br />

Rosa, 23, gave up competitive running<br />

five monthsago to concentrate on “beinga<br />

full­timesister”.<br />

The pairhave abusy few months ahead,<br />

givingworkshops in Melbournenext week<br />

beforereturning hometoattend the Amuri<br />

show. They fly out to the US on March22<br />

for athree­week tour giving workshops,<br />

researchingtheir next projects,and<br />

visiting the raw­food school.<br />

Margo saysthey will demonstratetwo of<br />

their recipesatthe AmuriA&P Show.<br />

“It will be abit of fun. We likegetting out<br />

with microphones —it's dangerous. We<br />

have abit of banterand we encourage<br />

peopletoask questions.”<br />

Tuesday, March 3, before the show.<br />

Prizes will be presented for the beef<br />

classes on Tuesday evening at The<br />

Rotherham Hotel.<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> Veterinary Clinics<br />

Settlers spread out across inland<br />

Australia, constructing windmills<br />

storehouses, livestock yards and<br />

droving routes, the traces of which<br />

can still be seen today. The<br />

succeeded, while countless others<br />

aristocrats.<br />

Milestone<br />

for hospital<br />

By RACHEL MACDONALD<br />

Oxford Hospital is preparing to celebrate<br />

its centenary, withregistrationsopenfor<br />

thosewho wouldlike to attend the<br />

afternoon tea and dinnerbeing planned.<br />

The hospital wasbuilt in 1919 on two<br />

hectares of land boughtfrom Mr W.H.<br />

Alford, says Linda Harris, presidentof<br />

the Friends of Oxford Hospital.<br />

It was completed at acost of £5486 and<br />

opened on March30, 19<strong>20</strong>.<br />

‘‘It originally had 10 medical and<br />

maternitybeds.Then, in 1939, the<br />

balconieswere closed in to housefour<br />

more beds. In 1979, one morebed was<br />

added, bringing the number to 15, as it is<br />

today.’’<br />

Afew months afterthe first patients<br />

were admitted, the Ladies Visitors<br />

Association was formed. Members met<br />

regularly to hem nappies and knit baby<br />

singlets and booties, as well as visiting<br />

patients, and leaving eggs,veges and<br />

baking in the kitchen.<br />

The group was renamed Friendsof<br />

Oxford Hospital in 1987, and still<br />

provides for patient comfort.<br />

‘‘We’ve just raised the funds,for<br />

example,toput newcarpet and furniture<br />

into the conservatory,’’ Lindasays.<br />

However, attention is nowfocusedon<br />

the centenary. Those who wouldlike to<br />

attend the afternoontea on the hospital<br />

grounds, or the dinner at the Oxford<br />

Workingmen’s Club, both on March 29,<br />

Integrating trees to be<br />

discussed at field day<br />

By NICK LEDGARD<br />

Farmer interest in greater integration of<br />

trees into farm management is as high as<br />

it has been for decades.<br />

This is due not only to the desire to<br />

store carbon for commercial and<br />

personal reasons (such as carbon<br />

neutrality), but also to meet<br />

sustainability and environmental goals.<br />

Although attitudes towards the extent<br />

of tree use vary, all agree with the<br />

current 1Billion Trees slogan, ‘‘the right<br />

tree in the right place’’.<br />

On <strong>February</strong> 27 there is an<br />

opportunity for <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

landowners and managers to see some of<br />

the best examples of the wise and<br />

informed use of trees on farmland.<br />

The <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> branch of the<br />

New Zealand Farm Forestry Association<br />

is holding afield­day on the property of<br />

Gary and Rebecca Fleming, at the head<br />

of the Kowai River under Mt Grey.<br />

Last year, Gary won the FFA’s<br />

Husqvarna South Island Farm Forester<br />

of the Year competition for his use of<br />

trees on his property.<br />

Gary has planted 600 different species,<br />

and there is nowhere else in <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> where one would see a<br />

greater range of trees on aworking farm.<br />

However, the focus of the day will be<br />

on ‘‘best bet’’ options for integrating<br />

trees into avariable farming landscape –<br />

plus the basic practices for ensuring<br />

their successful establishment.<br />

The day will start at 9.30am at Mt Grey,<br />

1km up Fleming Rd. Drive to the end of<br />

Marshmans Rd, which starts just north<br />

of Ashley School. After 10km the road<br />

reaches the Kowai River. Fleming Rd is<br />

on the left just before the crossing.<br />
