The Covid­19virus has forced the

both beencancelled.

Postponements or

winter, which traditionally is the

quietesttime forinternational

travellers.

Mr Abbot says work is being done

at thepools complex on the impact

of restrictions aroundgatherings of

more than 500 people.

He says thereare few times when

thereare morethan 500 people at

the complex at one time.

‘‘Butweare working on aplan to

manage that.’’

Thereisalso ahuge focus on

hygiene, with cleaning

regimes stepped up.

‘‘We are working

through that to make

sure all hygiene is

higherthan it normally

is, so we can providea

service in asafe

environment,’’ he says.

Mr Abbotsays it has

been confirmed that

Covid­19 is not carried

by water, and says the

waterquality at the complex

already exceeds every standard.

‘‘We do morethan what is

required,’’ he says.

Crunch looms over virus controls

From Page 1

‘‘Everything has been going

good. Better than what we

thought. But Ithink it will

change, we’re just not sure

how yet. It’s certainly not

business as usual.’’

Arecord 13 cruise­ship

visits were scheduled this

season and, while one visit

was cancelled early in the

season due to the weather,

just one remaining visit has

had to be cancelled because

of the new cruise ship ban.

‘‘We have had

cancellations in terms of

accommodation, but most of

the operators have been able

to fill cancellations, so far,’’

Mr Ormsby says.

‘‘We just have to wait and

see what’s in front of us.’’

He says the experiences

following the global financial

crisis in 2008 and the 2016

earthquake found that while

overseas tourist numbers fell,

domestic visitors increased

significantly.

‘‘There’s alot of New

Zealanders who haven’t seen

their own country, so they

don’t know how beautiful it

is.’’

Meanwhile, community

leaders are grappling with

how to support those affected

by the tourism downturn and

farmers already suffering

from the drought.

Mother nature also had a

say early on Monday, with a

5.1­magnitude quake near

Culverden.

Hurunui Mayor Marie

Black said gatherings were

spirits during the last

drought and during recovery

quake. Guest speakers were

brought in and field days and

farmer meetings were held.

This, she says, is adifferent

beast, because it precludes

giving people the opportunity

to join in events of 500 or

more.

‘‘It is really sad that the

Hawarden Show has had to

be cancelled.

‘‘It is the fellowship at the

show that is just as important

as the competitive side.

People enjoy chatting, having

alaugh, and having aday of

relaxation,’’ she says.

‘‘But we have to do some

different thinking, and the

council will be talking about

how it can support people

through this latest adverse

event.

‘‘We must all follow the

Ministry of Health

guidelines. We are all living

in the moment,’’ she says.

Mrs Black says the

difficulty for people is not

knowing how long there will

be border controls and rules

around mass gatherings.

‘‘Nothing is defined at this

stage.’’

Waimakariri Mayor Dan

Gordon says residents are

understandably concerned

about the virus.

‘‘We urge everyone to

remain calm, look after

yourself and your families,

and to take any necessary

precautions when required.

‘‘We can all help to ‘keep it

out’, and ‘stamp it out’ and

‘slow it down’.

‘‘The council is staying upto­date

on the situation and,

like all of us, is listening to,

and ready to react to,

announcements coming from

the Ministry of Health,” he

says.

Concerns over elder abuse

By RACHEL MACDONALD

Elder abuseisalive and well in

the Hurunui and Waimakariri,

says Simon Templeton, chief

executive of Age Concern

Canterbury.

In fact,hesays it is unlikely

there is any extended familyin

the region,regardless of

ethnicity or socio­economic

status,where it is not present.

‘‘Whether it’sphysical,

financial, or psychological

abuse, this kindoffamily

violence affects around10

percentofolder people every

year,’’hesays.

‘‘Waimakariri alone has

more than 11,500 residents

aged older than 65, so that’s

more than 1000 people

annually likelytobesuffering

some form of abuse.’’

He saysthe main driverisa

lack of respect for the elderly

in today’s mainstreamculture.

Adding insult to injury, 75

percentofperpetratorsare

usuallyfamily members.

‘‘It’s this family connection

that makes elderabuse such a

complexproblem. Of course,

the olderperson wants the

abuse to stop, but they

generally also wanttokeep

relationships intact.

‘‘It can be very difficult to

find an outcome that delivers

on both fronts.’’

The mostcommon form of

abuse his team is called upon

Elderabuse ... ‘‘This kindoffamily violence affects around 10 percent of olderpeople every year.’’

to deal with is psychological.

‘‘We see it all the time, as do

doctors and lawyers. So often, a

for them, or evenrefuseto

consultation.

‘‘We’re not talking about

they were of sound mind.

‘‘We’retalking aboutfamily

or acquaintances tryingtotake

he says.

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The Glenmark Rugby Club may have lost

its memorabilia and home in afire five

Roading issues aired in capital

By DAVID HILL

Waimakariri’stransport

concerns have been aired in

Wellington.

Mayor Dan Gordonled a

local delegation to meet

with Transport Minister

Phil Twyford last week at

the Beehive to discuss

transport projects such as

the proposed Woodend

Bypass, road safety

concerns in Woodendand

the Skew Bridge upgrade.

Mr Gordon was joined by

chief executive Jim Palmer

and utilities and roading

manager Gerard Cleary.

The trio took with them

letters from the Hurunui

District Council,

Ravenswood businesses,

the Pegasus and Woodend

Residents’Associations and

the Woodend­Sefton

Community Board in

support of the Woodend

projects.

The proposed Woodend

Bypasshas been in the

pipeline for several years

and Mr Gordonsays the

council has backed the

project since2001.

“Thetransport minister

understood the frustrations

of the community and said

he had received alot letters

from people in Woodend,’’

Mr Gordonsaid.

‘‘While the minister did

not give any commitment to

the timing of the bypass’s

construction, he did

“The council cannot

dictate how andwhere the

on transport infrastructure,

but this meetingwas away

of makingsure the needs

community are

acknowledged and known

by the minister.”

There have been safety

concerns around Skew

Bridge atSilverstream,in

west Kaiapoi, for sometime.

Aproposal to upgrade or

replace the bridge has been

put forward as part of a

wider project to improve

the western Rangiora

alignment from Townsend

Rangiora to the motorway

and take pressure off

The cost of upgrading

Skew Bridgecould cost as

much as $12 million, which

would be amajor burdenon

Enthusiasts lead alife of Riley

By DAVID HILL

Rileycar enthusiastsfrom

around the country

converged on Rangiora last

week.

The Riley Car Club of

New Zealand held its

diamond jubilee rallyinthe

town,witharound 30 Riley

cars plussupportvehicles,

including 13 from the North

Island and some Australian

visitors,enjoying what the

region had to offer.

Christchurch Riley car

ownerGeorge Calder said

Rangiora was chosenasthe

rallyhub ‘‘because it ticked

all the boxes’’.

‘‘We always base it in a

town which has all the

facilitiesand we got out

each day on trips around

the area.’’

From the Rangiora base,

the Riley cars ventured to

Halswell, Lincoln,

Lyttelton, Amberley,

Oxford, the Waimakariri

Gorge and Mt Thomas,

visiting car museums and

sheds across the region.

Mr Calder says British

Riley motor cars spanneda

70­year period starting at

‘‘the dawnofmotoring’’.

‘‘Theywere very

successful in motorsport

and were known for being

very rugged and strong, and

tendedtohold together in

all conditions.’’

He said the oldest car in

the rally was from 1928,

with the newest from 1967.

Both were driven by their

Kaiapoi owners.

Mr Calder and his wife

Karen drove a1937 Riley,

which he bought in 1966 as

Ambassadors help campers

Ambassadors are helping freedom

campers to stay on track in the Cheviot

area of Hurunui district.

Two ambassadors havebeen employed,

Nukuroa and Heidi Tirikatene­Nash,

who share a20­hour­a­week position

funded by the Ministry of Business

Employment and Innovation (MBIE).

Hurunui District Council’s compliance

team leader,AndrewBrown, saysthe

programme is goingwell.

Behaviour of freedom campers has

improvedand complaints havebeen

reduced in Cheviot’s popular coastal

locations of GoreBay, Nape Nape and

nearby hot spotswhere the ambassadors

have been workingover summer.

Previously, freedom camping concerns

were dealt with by districtcouncil

officerswho had to drivelong distances to

tackle complaints in the area.

Ambassadors now provide the service,

visiting when freedom campersare

setting up forthe night, giving themthe

opportunity to educatecampers on their

responsibilities, share theirlove forthe

area,and inform campers on what their

options are, while savingratepayer

dollars.

When required,they enforce the

council’s bylaws if acamper has setup

wherefreedomcamping is prohibited.

Nukuroa says their experiences have

been largely positive,with overseas

visitors happy to comply with by­laws.

“Manyvisitors are really thankfultobe

in the country and want to be good

kaitiaki (guardians) and responsible

travellers,” Nukuroa says.

As tangata whenua, visitorshave

appreciated the culturalinteraction with

Nukuroa and many special connections

have beenmade.

“We’re mindfulthat we are partofa

visitor’s travel experience in Hurunui so

we try to get them on­board to work with

us,and for themtohave enjoyed meeting

us.

‘‘We’vehad people say they haveleft

theWest Coast and Queenstowntoreturn

to the Hurunuiasitwas such agreat

travel experience.”

As ambassadors, Nukuroa and Heidi

direct alot of business intothe

community by sendingpeople to nearby

camping grounds, or to the allocated

freedom camping sites. They always give

peopleoptionsfor movingon, whichhas

been successful.

“There are always people who wantto

tryiton, and it’s surprisinghow well

informedand howprecise the questions

arefrom campers who wishtointerpret

thefreedom campingby­laws in their

favour.

‘‘Most of the concerns are with New

Zealanderswho have less tolerance to

compliance,’’ Nukuroasays.

Driving programme planned

Mentordrivers are neededfor anew

community­based programme in the

Waimakariri district.

The SalvationArmy is launchingafree

community drivermentor programme in

Rangiora today to assist drivers in getting

their restricted and full driver’s licences.

Regional co­ordinatorJuliaGraham

says the programme hasbeen

running in Christchurch since

2014, with 760 drivers

advancing through the

initiative.

It is being extendedtothe

West Coast,Timaru, Ashburton

and the Waimakariri thanksto

support from the Salvation

Army, the government’s

Provincial Growth Fund, the

policeand StadiumCars.

‘‘We really need mentors for this

programme. They need to have had afull

licence for at least two years, aclean

drivers’ licence and to be patient; and they

will go through apolice check.’’

Julia was involved in setting up the

OxfordU­Driveprogramme to help young

peopletogain their restricted licence.

‘‘The new programme is different

because it’s not just for teenagersbut for

Julia Graham

anybodywho’s got any barriers.It’s alsofor

people on parole, single mums on a

benefit, peoplewith disabilities or who

struggle with mental health. Anxiety is a

big one.’’

Julia says she already has six people on

the waiting list before the launch.

Two sponsoredcars are being provided

for the programme.

The cars will be automatic.

Drivers who sit the restricted

licencedriving testare only

licensed to drive automatics,

but oncethey obtaintheir full

licencethey will be able to

drive both manual and

automatic cars,Julia says.

She says concerns havebeen

raisedbydrivingschoolsthat

theymay lose business.

‘‘It’s not competingwith driving schools

becauseweare helping thosewho can’t

afford to pay for lessons. It’s about making

driverssafer. If we can get all those people

on our programme then we are goingtoget

safer drivers on ourroads and that’swhere

we are lookingtowork withthe police.’’

Regions best placed

to drive economy

By RACHEL MACDONALD

Wellington needs to letgoof the reins

and letthe country’ssmaller

communities get on withdrivingtheir

own economic development.

Thatisthe thrustofareport,

Powering Up theRegions,recently

released by DavidWilson,directorof

Economic Development NewZealand.

Mr Wilson sits on an advisorypanel

for the government’s $1 billion

Provincial Growth Fund,but thatonly

applies to six regionsnationwide.

He saysthe time hascometolookat

economic development forall regions,

along withfundingtosupport earlystage

start­upsthat will add value to the

area.

Waimakariri MayorDan Gordon,who

sits on theboard of Enterprise North

Canterbury (ENC), says thepaperneeds

careful consideration, and its findings

willbediscussedwithENC and the

council’s staff andrepresentatives in

due course.

He saysitraises amix of matters for

existing economic development

agencies such as ENC, their respective

councils and thegovernment to get

their headsaround.

The reportargues thatregional

councils and economic agencies have

the on­groundknowledge and contacts

needed to getlocally relevant,

profitable, and sustainablebusinesses

off theground.

Theyalready knowhow to getthings

done, it says, buthave to navigate too

muchred tapetoget funding from

central government to makeithappen.

Thatisgetting in theway of the

government’s30­year economic plan,

which calls forasustainable,

productive andinclusive economy, but

doesn’tset out howtoget there.

‘‘Wedon’t have apolicy or strategy

probleminNew Zealand;wehave an

implementation problem,’’ thereport

says.

It also suggests thecurrent approach

to regional development is too

centralised, witharesultant lack of

trust between local councils andcentral

government.

It recommendsbuilding capacity and

capability for regional economic

development,which willtake abetter

understanding of policyand practice at

all levels.

It addsthat theregions needgood

economic development agencies, but

councils oftenstruggle to fundthem,so

theyare under­resourcedand therefore

workingatless than full capacity.

‘‘Fromwhat Isee of Mr Wilson’s

findings, there are many aspects

reflected in the way North Canterbury

alreadygoes abouteconomic

developmentpromotion, throughENC,

thatwecan be proud of,’’ Mr Gordon

says.

He addsthat thereare undoubtedly

thingsthe regionmightdobetter,but

resource implications, as noted in the

report, needtobetaken intoaccount.

Cottage revamp a

quake milestone

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The historicWaiauCobCottage, badly

damagedinthe2016 earthquake, has been

reborn.

Descendants of the Fraser family,who

livedinthe cottage for20 yearsfrom1867,

wereonhandlastSaturday to officially

open the cottage and admire its

restoration.

Eleven members of thefamily travelled

southfromTaumaranui,Tauranga,

HavelockNorth,Taupo, Auckland,

Whangamata and Masterton for the

ceremony.

They joined around 60 people,including

Hurunui Mayor Marie Black, local

councillor Ross Barnes and council staff,

to celebrate the milestone in Waiau’s

recovery fromthe7.8­magnitude quake.

Grant Fraser, the first­born grandchild

of Hugh Fraser, said there was something

special about Waiau.

‘‘It is such an amazing community. Ihave

neverlived here,butitfeels like home,”

Grant said. “When Ivisitedthecobcottage

in 2017 after the earthquake damage, I

never could haveimagined theresult we

seetoday.Weare so gratefulforthe

commitment and support everyone has

given.Itis amazing.

“Whatawonderful day, with great food

and good people.

❛It is such an amazing

community. Ihave never lived

here, but it feels like home.❜

—Grant Fraser

‘‘We are so happy we made it down.”

Grant said the familyunderstoodHugh

settled in the cottage with11children.

Three children died and were buried in

theWaiau cemetery.

After 20 years in Waiau, the Frasers

moved to Gisborne.

The project to restore the cottagewas

made possible by funding from the Lottery

Grants Board and the AmuriHistorical

Society.

MaryBowen’s work in archiving the

history of the Fraser family was

recognised, along with the cob cottage

history by Cameron Scott, aFraser

descendant. Tribute was also paidtothe

support of the council,the work of the

builder, Jim Gentle, andthe effortsofM.C.

Jackson Plastering Ltd in faithfully

restoring the walls of the cottage using a

mix of straw, localdirtandcow dung.

Mrs Black said thecommunity had been

amazing in swinging behind Waiau’s

recovery and helping ensure the

restoration of the cottage.

Master plan being prepared

By DAVID HILL

Oxford AreaSchoolhopes to have a

master planfor itsproposedrebuild by

the endofthe year.

Therehas been much anticipation

sincethe government announceda

$10 million redevelopment of the school

in September 2018 and principal Mike

Hart admitsthat progress has been a

little slowerthan he would like.

‘‘Last year, as aschool,wewrote a

briefofhow we currently use the school

setting and how we mightuse it in the

future.

‘‘It’s about lookingat50years from

now.

‘‘We’re not just rebuilding the school

for tomorrow,it’s for the future, so it’s

important that we invest the time in the

planning.

‘‘We are just excited and really

looking forward to seeing thefirstdraft

and then working withthe architects to

finalise it.’’

Mr Hart saysvirtually the entire

school will be redeveloped, aside from

the new modern learning environment

building whichwas opened in 2017.

The school will receiveanextra

$347,000 fromthe government’s schools

packageannounced towards the end of

lastyearand ‘‘wewillbelookingtouse

thatinconjunctionwith the rebuild’’.

Mr Hart saysthe school’s observatory

is considered aclassroomand will be

incorporated in the rebuild.

‘‘Wewould likeittobeacentrepiece

in the school.The biggest challengeis

the line of sight and being abletosee the

horizon.’’

The new observatorywill likely

incorporatealecture­theatre­type

space, whichcan be used as aclassroom

during the day,with thetelescope room

attached.

Omihi Collie Club to mark 100 years

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Taleswill be unleashedand

dog skills shown off at the

home of the Omihi CollieClub

laterthis month.

The club is celebrating its

100thbirthday at Eastlyn,

Omihi, on March 29 and 30.

Laterinthe year it will hold

acentennial dinner, where a

booklet on the history of the

club will be launched.

The club was formedin1919

at ameeting of the Omihi

branch of the Farmers’ Union

at Omihi School.

It was namedthe Waipara

and OmihiCollie Dog Trial

Club,with Waipara being

dropped from the namein

1935.

Mr G.B.Starky was elected

patron, Mr AngusCameron

presidentand Mr W. Baxter

vice­president.

Mr Starkyofferedapaddock

and his sheep for the firsttrial

at Spye, wheretwo open

classes and amaiden class for

farmers wererun. The maiden

classcovered the Waipara,

Omihi, Scargilland Motunau

school districts.

The Spye railway station was

nearby, which competitors

used to gettothe venue.

As trialsare today,itwas a

community event, with many in

the district helping the event to

run smoothly, with womenin

the kitchentoensure there was

plenty to eat.

Spye remained host to the

trials until 1969, when it was

movedtoWash Creek,at

Waipara. In 1986, anew home

was found at Eastlyn,atOmihi,

where the clubremains today.

The move meant acouple of

buildings had to be movedto

the new grounds.

As theywere getting close to

thedestination, one of the

buildings started slipping off

thetruck,but theycarried on,

making it to the farmwiththe

building still on board and in

onepiece.

On one occasion, Tom

Barwell ranafield day at

Netherwood,before rugby.

Snow coveredthe ground, but

thefieldday carried on

regardless.

Mr Barwell becameatop

triallistand laterturnedto

breeding dogs.Hehad kennels

at the back of Amberley.

Some othertop triallists

have beenmembers,including

Leo Croft,Dick Carmichael,

Ron Symmonds, Ray Maskew,

John Kollowski, Lex Couper,

Neil Evans and Ted Lewis.

Notablewomen in its ranks

have includedBarbara

Carmichael, Jean Forrester,

Margaret Evans and Annette

Miller.

The centennial trials will be

signpostedtoEastlyn,off Sloss

Road, which is off Jury’s Road,

Omihi.

Top judges willdecide the

winners, who willreceive

specialprizes in eachclassto

mark the occasion.

Past membersare invited to

attend and watch, along with

any members of the public.

Steph shows true grit in her chosen passion

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Waipara local and dog triallist Steph

Tweed has been named the Skellerup

New Zealand Rural Sportswoman of the

Year.

Steph was awarded the honour at the

2020 Norwood NZ Rural Awards at the

Awapuni Racecourse in Palmerston

North last weekend.

Steph became the first woman to win a

New Zealand dog trial championship in

June last year.

She won the North Island and the New

Zealand championship straight hunt

with Grit, her black­and­tan huntaway,

whom she has had since he was apup.

Steph, astock manager, was

introduced to dog trials by her father

when she was at school. She says once

you get ataste of trialling, it’s

impossible to stop.

She told the North Canterbury News

after her win that she had always been

mad keen on dogs. She says her dogs are

the main reasons she is farming.

Steph entered her first national dog

trial competition in 2013, aged 21.

Last year, after competing in dog trial

competitions against her father, Steph

went on to claim third place in the South

Island championships at Hanmer

Springs, before taking astab at the

national title which she won, becoming

the first woman in the 130 years of the

sport to claim the title.

On the first go­round, Grit scored a

whopping 97 points to win the North

Island leg of the championship. In his

second run, he scored 95.5, with both

scores being tallied to give her the

overall honours in the straight hunt.

Grit was bred by Steph’s father, the

offspring of his bitch Gemma, atwo­time

South Island straight hunt champion.

Grit, who is just over 5 1 ⁄2,had been an

easy dog to train.

Steph says the sheep and beef farm

she manages at Waipara provides an

ideal place to keep her dogs fit and in

work.

The judging panel for the awards is

convened by Olympic rowing medallist

Nathan Twaddle, and includes rural

sports icon and president of Shearing

Sports New Zealand Sir David Fagan,

fencing legend Paul van Beers, MP for

Taranaki­King Country Barbara

Kuriger, founder and trustee of the Ford

Ranger New Zealand Rural Games

Steve Hollander, and agricultural

journalists Craig ‘‘Wiggy’’ Wiggins and

Tony Leggett.

Nominations for the awards are made

by rural sports associations from

throughout New Zealand.

Eatery in Greystone'snew-look cellar door

Organic wine producer

Greystone has opened anewlook

cellar door and eatery at

its vineyard in Waipara.

The cellar door now boasts

an eatery offering sharing

plates made from locally

grown, organic and foraged

produce. It is headed by

acclaimed chef and forager,

Melany Wright.

General manager, and

founding viticulturist Nick

Gill says Mel’s food aligns

perfectly with the team’s

ambition to provide an

authentic North Canterbury

wine and food experience.

‘‘We make wine that

reflects our environment, so

it made sense to develop a

menu that captures both

season and provenance.

‘‘Mel is renowned among

chefs in New Zealand for her

foraging skills as well as her

ability to tell astory of place

through food. There’s

something very special about

being able to share North

Canterbury food and wine in

this way,’’ he says.

The refit of the cellar door

was motivated by the new

labels launched by the

winery at the end of last year.

Greystone is 100 percent

certified organic.

The Greystone Cellar Door

and Kitchen is open daily

from 10am­5pm.

The full menu can be

viewed online at bit.ly/

By STAFF REPORTERS

The uncertainty around the

coronavirus pandemic is adding

yet another headache for North

Canterbury farmers.

Federated Farmers North

Canterbury president Cameron

Henderson and North

Canterbury Rural Support Trust

chairman Andy Munro say dry

conditions, the ongoing effects of

Mycoplasma bovis and

coronavirus, and this week’s

5.1­magnitude earthquake near

Culverden are creating

uncertainty.

‘‘The effects of the virus seem

to be changing day to day, as we

have seen with share markets

and travel bans,’’ Mr Henderson

says.

‘‘The forestry sector and

seafood sector seem to be feeling

the greatest pain, followed

closely by the meat sector.’’

He says the dairy industry

appears to be faring the best as

markets seem to be more stable,

and drought conditions have

probably helped keep prices up.

‘‘Luckily, our main market in

China seems to be getting on top

of the virus so it would be great to

see areturn to normal trading

happening soon.

‘‘Things are dry, but most

farmers seem to be surviving

OK.’’

Mr Munro says the Rural

Support Trust is exploring ways

Cameron Henderson ... ‘‘The effects of the virus seem to be changing day

to day, as we have seen with share markets and travel bans.’’

to help people stay connected

now that large gatherings are

being cancelled.

‘‘I went to the Cheviot A&P

Show at the weekend and it was a

good event, and agood chance for

people to catch up and have a

chat.’’

He says it is important for

people to get out while they are

able to and support local

businesses and the wider

community.

‘‘It’s good that people are being

proactive and postponing or

cancelling overseas trips.

‘‘I would encourage people to

get along and support your local

coffee shop and local businesses.

It’s amatter of everybody being

aware and thinking of others, and

try to support each other.’’

Mr Munro says there could be

implications for large funerals

and family gatherings, while

school sports events may be in

doubt.

‘‘Hopefully we can get rain and

at least that will take drought out

of the equation.’’

He reminds people that the

trust is available to help by

phoning 0800 787 254.

‘‘Too often people think they

are the only one in that situation,

but as soon as they look out the

door they realise everyone else is

in the same boat.’’
