Karikaas triumphs in awards

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Cheesemaker Karikaas has a

golden glow following the

New Zealand Champions of

Cheese Awards.

The Loburn­based business

was awarded the only gold

medal in the European

category at the awards for its

maasdam. It was judged the

best European­style cheese.

The champion cheese,

which was also awarded the

European Trophy, was

crafted by new Karikaas

cheesemaker Petra Kasalova

and head cheesemaker Bryar

Enerson. It was made in

December 2019.

Maasdam has adistinctive

flavour —sweet and nutty —

and has adistinctive

appearance.

It is the cheese that is in

every cartoon where mice

and cheese are drawn

together —the cheese with

lovely big holes.

Karikaas manager Di

Hawkins says Petra, who

joined the production team

early in 2019, also made the

gold­medal­winning Pepper

cheese.

‘‘To have achieved such

excellence in cheesemaking

over that period of time

speaks volumes for her

dedication and skill,’’ Di says.

The Karikaas team also

won silver medals for all the

Karikaas standard cheeses —

gouda and leyden/cumin

gouda, and pumahana.

Karikaas is one of the few

cheesemakers that

specialises in vintage cheese,

Di says.

‘‘It takes ateam to make

winning cheeses, and

everyone at Karikaas

contributes to the quality of

what we make.

‘‘No­one can do it alone, but

it is always very pleasing for a

cheesemaker to get agold

medal, and atrophy is the

icing on the cake.

‘‘We pride ourselves on

consistently winning gold and

silver medals. We are good at

what we do, and our

customers appreciate that we

do it consistently.’’

Covid­19 restrictions meant

the cheese awards event in

early May went ahead by

video via YouTube and

Facebook.

‘‘I sent all the staff alink so

that we could watch at 4pm

on May 6from our own homes

to see how we went,’’ Di says.

‘‘Delta wines were the

sponsors for the European

category, so Itoasted our win

with atoast to Delta wines,

because wine and cheese are

such agreat combination.’’

The Karikaas shop at

Loburn is closed to the public

at this time to protect the

manufacturing business.

However, Di says people

wanting to buy cheese can do

so by mail order and through

its website.

Recognition ... Petra Kasalova started with the Karikaas Cheese

production team early in 2019. Her skills have been recognised in

the New Zealand Champions of Cheese Awards.

Eyes to the sky for duck shooting

Hunters wereout in huge

numbers, as weretheir

feathered targets, at the

opening of the duck shooting

season on Saturday.

NorthCanterbury turned

on pretty good weather, with

established pondsproviding

some goodhunting, with bags

of around 30 to 70 birds per

pond being reported.

The three­weekdelaytothe

season due to theCovid­19

lockdown failed to dampen

the enthusiasm of hunters,

with all of them just grateful

to finally be out theredoing it.

Hunters reported the best

numbers of birdsseen

frequenting ponds in many

years.

NorthCanterbury Fish and

Game rangers coveredawide

area to check for compliance,

whichthey found was high

across the region.

Hunters said the

Government’s decision to

delaythe startofthe game

bird seasonuntil after New

Zealand movedinto alert

level2,enabled the cultural

fabric of what is opening day

to be maintained.

Hunters were positive

aboutbeing able to enjoya

game bird season and grateful

to be able to get out hunting.

Fish &Game New Zealand

chiefexecutive MartinTaylor

said the weekend was an

important opportunity for

thousands of New Zealand

families to harvestsome

organic free­rangefood for

the table.

‘‘In these economic times,

being able to provide good

wholesome wildfood may

takethe pressureoff some

families in the months

ahead,’’ he says.

New Zealand has many

places for hunters to gather

gamebirds, and many regions

benefit from the resultant

Gamebird seasons vary in

hunters can travel to a

No agreement over Amberley tyre mountain

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Aplan to get rid of atyre mountain near

Amberley has hit aspeed bump.

The landownerisnot buying into aplan

by AccountabilityAction (AA) to shred

and ship the tyresoff the property.

AA members Julia McLean andBruce

Gledhill outlined their plan to the

Hurunui District Council last week. The

council agreedtohold funds if its

application to the Waste Minimisation

Fund was successful.

Richard Smith, the lawyer for the

RacecourseRoad landowner, says AA’s

business plan is the most ‘‘amateurish,

unsophisticated, and contradictory’’ he

has ever seen.

Hesaysuntil aviableformal business

plan is received by the landownerhe

cannotconsider endorsing an application

by AA to the Waste Minimisation Fund. A

plan has not been received.

Mr Smithsays the landownerdoesn’t

rule out working with AA, but it must be

collaborative rather than the ‘‘adversarial

approach’’ that had prevailed.

Meanwhile, adetermination as to who

owns the tyresisbefore the court, Mr

Smith says.

Until this was determined no progress

could be made by any party.

Mr Smith saysthe landowner alsohas

concerns over the shredder to be used to

processthe tyres before packing them

intocontainers to be shipped north to

Golden Bay Cement to fuel afurnace.

Mr Smith saysheand the landowner

are working with Environment

Canterbury to find away forward in both

legal and practical terms, including its

own application to the wastefund.

‘‘That application was drafted

collaboratively between the applying

party and the landowner,’’ Mr Smith said.

An initiative to turn aroundthe

lives of at­risk Kaikoura

youngsters has received a

major cash injection.

Christchurch­based Bros for

Change,which has been

operating in Kaikourasince

last year, has received $510,000

to offeranalternative

educationprogrammefor 15 to

24­year­old males.

The programme usesTeAo

Maori protocols —aworld

view thatacknowledges the

interconnectednessand

interrelationshipofall living

and non­living things.

The funding was announced

by Regional Economic

Development Minister Shane

Jones and Employment

Minister WillieJackson last

week.

Bros for Changefounder

Jaye Pukepuke saysthe

programme teaches lifeskills,

self­esteem, self­awareness,

self­respect and selfmanagement

to youngmales

who have been ‘‘labelled’’.

‘‘You can’t justgodown the

street and say ‘look at those

naughtykids’.

‘‘They’re not naughty.

They’rejust doing what they

know.’’

He saysthere can be any

number of reasonswhy young

people fall through the cracks,

including being raised in solo

parent homes, having aparent

in jail, the lack of amale role

model, alcoholand drug abuse,

links to agang, ‘‘or they’re just

alone’’.

Jaye knows only too well how

things can go wrong.

‘‘I was contracted to playin

‘‘Teacherstold me Iwas

just because someone says

or ‘you can do it’.’’

Jaye says the funding will

allowrenovations to be

completed at Brosfor Change’s

new Kaikouraheadquarters,

as well as funding the courses,

with the next one scheduled to

start in July.

While the six­month

programme is Te Ao Maori

based, it is open to any young

maleaged 15 to 24, who are all

self­referred.

‘‘Any male in thatage group

can ask to come on this

programme andthen we will

assess whether the programme

is right for them.’’

The programme is not

curriculum­based,but it can

leadtoyoungpeople being

abletoreturn to school or

moveontotertiary education.

‘‘NCEAiscurriculum­based

and it’s not an outcome these

young peopleare ready for,’’

Jaye says.

‘‘An outcomefor us is having

ahot meal or not smashing

from.

‘‘It’snot that we can’t reach

Smoky outdoor fires

generate complaints

By SHELLEY TOPP

Outdoor fires have provenanuisance in

the Waimakariri Districtthis month, with

tighter winter rules applying.

During the first 19 days of thismonth, 17

complaints were filedwith Environment

Canterbury (ECan) over outdoor firesin

the district.

‘‘Outdoorburningcan be anuisance for

neighbours and can add to air pollution

caused by other sourcessuch as home

heating,’’ECan’s Waimakariri zone

delivery lead, Marco Cataloni, says.

‘‘Because of this, we encourage

alternatives such as mulching,

composting, kerb­side collection services,

taking garden rubbish to the local transfer

station, or hiring achipper and using or

selling the chips.’’

Although the Canterbury Air Regional

Plan allows some outdoor burning, it is not

permitted on propertieswithin acleanair

zone betweenMay 1and August 31.

In Rangiora, the 5125.64hectare clean

air zoneincludes the townshipand alarge

area of rural land extendingout to Dixons

Road in the north, Plaskett and Merton

roadsinthe west, and almostupto

Hicklands Road in the south, withthe

eastern boundaryless clearly defined by

roads.

Anyone planning an outdoor burn must

also alwayscheckwith Fire and

EmergencyNew Zealand onlineat

checkitsalright.nz to ensurethey comply

with any seasonal restrictionsor

permitting requirements.

However,ifall the environmentally

friendly options have been rejected andan

outdoor burn is permitted under ECan and

Fire and EmergencyNZrules,the person

who lightsthe firemust still adhere to

strict requirements on the day or facea

$300 fine for afire on private property and

$1000 forafireoncommercial property.

‘‘We would encourageanyone planning

to undertake an outdoorburn of their

green waste to contactusfirst,’’ Marco

says.

‘‘Our officers can provideguidance and

advice.’’

If an outdoor burn is to take placethe

wind must be blowing away from

neighbouring properties,fires must not be

lit on still days which can causethe smoke

to hang around, or very windydays

becauseofunpredictable windchanges, or

if rain is forecast.

The vegetation must alsobedry and the

fire must start with asmall pile and be hot

with agood flame to minimise smoke.

If the burn is likely to last for more than

three days, asmoke managementplan is

required.

Burning­related incidentscan be

reported, withasmuchdetailaspossible,

to ECan on 0800 765 588.

Once an offence has been identified,

ECan staff will investigate and, in many

cases, theyare still able to determine a

breach of the rules daysafterthe event.

Schools look to get creative

By DAVID HILL

Local schools are looking for more

creative ways to engage with next year’s

intakeofstudents due to Covid­19

restrictions.

Open nights and enrolment for

prospective Year 9pupils usually takes

place duringMay and June, but

Canterbury’sstate secondaryschools

agreedtocancel open nights in

response to Covid­19.

Rangiora and Kaiapoi high schools

plan to hold virtual open nights to

engagewith families ahead of

enrolments.

RangioraNew LifeSchool principal

Stephen Walters says open nights are an

important part of easing the transition

to high school.

‘‘In our case the parentshave usually

already made up their mind, so it’s often

abouthelping the childtotransition by

familiarising them with their new

school, so hopefully schoolswill be able

to open up later in the year.

‘‘Usually they start lookingfrom Year

6or7,sobythe time theyget to Year 8

they have usually made up their minds.’’

For now, mostCanterbury schools

have restrictions on parentsbeing on

site, which is unlikely to change until

the countrymovesout of alert level 2.

‘‘It is possible to have informal visits

and showpeople around, so the smaller

schoolswill be able to do it on an ad hoc

basis, but that’smore difficult for the

larger schools.’’

Keeping to the restrictions is

essential to reducing the riskof

spreading Covid­19, as one confirmed

casecould see aschool shutdown for up

to two weeks,ashappened when

Kaiapoi HighSchool had asuspected

casejust before lockdown.

Mr Walters says his school is sitting on

its maximum roll of 470,sothere were

no plansfor an open night.

‘‘Wedidn’t have one last year because

we didn’t have any vacancies.Even at

the primary school, last year we only

accepted new entrants of siblings.

‘‘Wehave been actively lobbyingthe

Ministry [of Education] for aroll

increase and, until that happens, we

havelimited space available.’’

Focus from Dan Gordon, Mayor

Retailers step up

We havebeen at level 2for two weeks

now. It has been great to see peopleout

and about again.Ipersonally enjoyed

beingable to get back into the office, to

pop out for acoffee and support acafe,

and shop at local retailers.

Ihave been impressed to see how our

retailershave all stepped up to operate

safely within the new restrictions.

Iencourage everyone who can to get

out and support local businesses.

Red Bus cancelling the Oxford Bus

Service and the proposed closure of the

Bunnings store in Rangiora have been

disappointing.Iampleased to have been

able to go into bat on bothmatters, as I

wouldfor other issues in our community.

Oxford has been able to secure private

and community providerswho are

delivering atransport solution.

Ihope Bunnings willreconsider its

proposal to close the Rangiora store.

Thesetwo example highlight the

difficulteconomic timesfaced by many. It

is important to support each other and be

kind through this time.

Council pools and librarieshave

reopened,with social distancing rules in

place. We are working out the details of

how to reopenother venues.

As Iwrite, the council is heading into

makingdecisions on the Annual Planthis

week. Thingshave changed since we first

drafted the planand the rates increase

we had signalled at an average 4percent

across the district earlier this year will be

significantly less.

Thecouncil is looking to adopta

responsiblebudget that keeps rates as

lowaspossible while supporting

essential services,and aprogramme that

provides the right level of stimulus to our

local economy.

It is always abalancing act,but this

year moresothan others.

We have heard the concerns of our

community and are acting appropriately.

At the same time, work is goingonto

developadistrict recovery plan.

We celebrateQueens Birthday this

weekend. It will be achancetoget out

anddomore than we have previously

been able.

Relax and connect with family and

friends. Ilook forward to doing this and

getting along to our beaches, out for a

walk, and supporting localoutlets.

Iwelcome contact fromanyone who

needs help. Email me at mayor@wmk.

Award for Ribbonwood

By ROBYN BRISTOW

There was no glitz and glamour at the

annual Vision Insurance Bed and

Breakfast Awards this year, but there

was still plenty to celebrate for Gary

Mitchell and Robert Day, of Cheviot.

Their Ribbonwood Country House

won the 2020 Essence of Bed and

Breakfast of the Year Award, and was

Highly Commended in the

Exceptional Bed and Breakfast

award.

The awards were held recently via

conferencing app Zoom.

‘‘We were meant to be conferencing

for four days last week in

Christchurch with the awards dinner

on Saturday night, but this was all

cancelled due to Covid­19,’’ Gary

says.

‘‘Instead, many people got dressed

up in red and black and Zoomed for

the awards presentations.

‘‘It was not quite the same as being

there in person but better than not

celebrating it after all the work that

went into the entries,’’ Gary says.

The incoming president of the Bed

&Breakfast Association NZ, Donna

Brooke, says Gary and Robert

‘‘breathed the essence of home

hosting into their award entry’’.

‘‘It really stood out to me that the

Recognition ... Ribbonwood’s bed and

breakfast operation picked up an honour

in the annual Vision Insurance Bed and

Breakfast Awards.

guests and, in fact, the community in

general, were treated with the

welcome, the sharing and the

professionalism with which this B&B

operates.

‘‘It is something that all B&Bs aspire

to be like.’’

Hopes to extend NCTIR stay

CraigMacklehopes to persuade the North

Canterbury Transport Infrastructure

Recovery (NCTIR) alliance to stay in

Kaikourabeyond itsDecember deadline.

The Kaikoura Mayor says there are

several ‘‘shovelready’’and consented

projects for NCTIR to continuewith,but

they have been shelved due to the push to

have otherwork completedbyDecember.

‘‘If the governmentislooking at waysto

employ people, we haveasituationwhere

there’s150 local jobs at stake, so why not

extend the deadline. The funding was

theretobegin with,but they can’t get it

done within the timeframe.’’

Mr Mackle says extending NCTIR’s

deadline would not only keep locals

employedintransport­relatedwork,but it

would ‘‘keep the localcafes occupied’’.

He says the Kaikoura District Council is

busy rewriting its draft annual plan to

reflect the new postCovid­19 reality and

expects the average rates rise to be lower

than previously signalled. ‘‘Wehave

knocked ahole in it and it doesn’t affect

roading or infrastructure, becausewe

don’t want to risk goingbackwards. People

have been calling for azero rates rise,but

then you set yourself up to fail.’’

Mr Mackle is confident there are

opportunities for growthinthe post Covid­

19 environment.

Conservation­minded ... Lynn Andrews is part of agroup of Charles Upham Retirement

Village residents making pest trap housings.

Traps deployed in

conservation area

Agroup of Charles Upham Retirement

Village residents is helping to ramp up a

South Island high country pest

eradication programme in the Nina

Valley.

Lynn Andrews and fellow village

residents have already had conservation

success with the pest trap housings they

built for use in the Medbury Scientific

Reserve, near the Hurunui River in

North Canterbury.

Quite afew hedgehogs have been

caught at Medbury, Lynn says.

Now their wooden traps are being laid

in atrap­line on the south side of Nina

Valley, in the high country where North

Canterbury meets the West Coast.

They have created wooden trapping

tunnels to help control rats, stoats,

hedgehogs and other predators, in aplan

created with partners that include the

Gone bush ... George Moran installs one

of the new traps in the Nina Valley.

Department of Conservation.

The Nina Valley traps were handed

over to aconservation enthusiast,

George Moran, who arranged their

transport into the target area.

George and his wife, Celia, linked up

with ahelicopter to get them into the

south side of the valley.

Both George and Lynn are grateful to

Ryman Healthcare for providing

funding for the wood, nails and screws

for all of the traps being built at the

village, with building supplies merchant

Kaiapoi ITM helping with timber.

Retailer Macpac has helped with the

purchase of hardware, including trap

mechanisms and stainless steel baffles.

George and Celia are part of aselfnamed

group of ‘‘Doubtless

Conservation’’ volunteers and friends.

“The name harks back to the name of

ahut which was the first place that Celia

and Istarted our volunteer work on.

‘‘Incidentally, the Doubtless Hut is in

the valley adjacent to the Nina valley —

so in one sense we haven’t (moved) very

far.”

Ateam of 10 worked recently to set the

traps around the Nina Valley conservation

area.

The trap lines will be checked every

four weeks.

“The reason we are concentrating on

this area is that it helps extend the

fantastic work undertaken by the Nina

Valley Restoration Group at Hurunui

College.

‘‘Over the last 10 years this group has

undertaken extensive trapping and

monitoring work in this valley, which

enabled 16 roroa/great­spotted kiwi to

be released into here from Arthur’s Pass

around 10 years ago,” George says.

Lynn says he and other volunteers,

including Ryman residents Ross

Stewart, Murray Giles, Lindsay Rowe

and Kevin Hurley, built the wooden

tunnels especially for the Nina Valley

and to DOC specifications.

Pressure to meet deadline

The Covid­19 lockdown has put pressure

on getting Kaikoura’s earthquake

infrastructure recoveryprojects

completed on time.

Work on council­ledrebuildsites,which

were idle duringthe lockdown, are being

accelerated in abid to meet the June 30

deadline.

Some roads may be closed so the work

can be completed.

Mill Rd is closed because of works on its

bridge, while the intersection of Mt Fyffe

and Schoolhouseroadswill be closedfor

threeweeks from June 2toreplace the

culverts and widen the intersection.

‘‘If you receive regular visitors or

deliveries suchasmilk tankers, please

ensure they’ve noted the signs thatwill go

up aweek before works commence, to let

them know of the changes,’’ acouncil

spokesperson said.

The councilsays it is on track to

complete the new pressure sewer system

Farming myths must be dispelled

By DAVID HILL

Changing perceptions about agricultural

careers is aconstant battle.

New Zealand Young Farmers (NZYF)

has been working to dispel myths that

agriculture ‘‘is not an academic subject’’

or that you have to come from afarm,

chief executive Lynda Coppersmith says.

‘‘I had aconversation withaparent

recently whose son had left school and

wanted to go into farming.

‘‘The parent discouraged him because

of the view thathecould ‘do better’and

that owning yourown farm is now an

impossibledream. Iset them straight on

that.

‘‘Asanindustryweneed to be

influencing the influencers who have an

impact on the decisions young people

makeabout theirfuture.’’

In recentyears NZYF has offered a

“teachers’day out” as away of

‘‘educating teachers that farming and

associatedindustries are afantastic

career choice for smartyoung people’’.

‘‘Weare also focusing on strategiesto

target parents’perceptions. It’s areal

challenge and, as asector, we need to do

more,’’ she says.

One way of dispelling myths is rolemodelling

successful young people.

‘‘While there are plenty of

opportunities workingon­farm,thereare

alsosome wonderful rolesin, for

example, environmentalscience,farm

support, research and development,

marketing, sales, IT and many others.’’

For young womenconsidering acareer

in agriculture, Lynda advises: ‘‘Don’t be

discouraged by setbacksornegative

comments’’.

‘‘It’s awonderful industry to be

working in and thereare plentyof

women role models and networksto

reach out to for support.’’

NZYFisunique in having women in

the roles of chiefexecutive and board

chair, but barriers continue to get in the

way of young womenexcelling, and that

is not unique to agriculture, Lyndasays.

‘‘Toovercome thisweneed to give

young women not just the skills,but the

confidence to over­achieve.

‘‘Challenging unconscious bias

towardswomen taking on these roles is

hardwork.

Dispelling myths ... Lynda Coppersmith says encouraging young people to get into

agriculture is not easy.

PHOTO:FILE

‘‘Confidence and resilienceis

required.’’

For young people interestedina

careerinagriculture,the bestway to

start is to get aweekend or holiday job on

afarm or join alocalyoung farmersclub

or TeenAg club at school, Lyndasays.

‘‘The agriculturesector is cryingout

for youngpeople who want to pick

produce or milk cows.This willgive you

atasteofwhat it is like to work on afarm.

‘‘I know several people who somehow

ended up working on afarm with no prior

interest in farming and thishas led to a

long and happy careerinagriculture.’’

Fencing waterways crucial

Fencing of waterways is essential

forprotecting water quality and

otherecological valuesfrom stock

intrusion.

Stock accessing waterwaysnot

only raises the riskofanimal

disease or parasites, butcan also

cause damage to the banks and

beds,and harmimportant

mahinga kai habitats, Environment

Canterbury(ECan) says.

Cattle, deer and pigs are

particularlyattracted to water and

canhave aserious impacton

water quality and mahinga kai

values.

Whilethe number of incidents is

notlarge, ECansaysresponding

quickly and effectively is apriority

forthe organisation to minimise

anyenvironmentaldamageand

ensureitdoesn’thappen again.

When an incidentisreported,

ECan staffwork with the

landowner to encouragethe

protection of riverbanksthrough

fencingand plantingtorestrict

stockaccess.

Aconsent is neededfor

intensivelyfarmed stock to access

thebed of alake or river. This

includes cattleand deeron

irrigated landorcontained for

winter break­feeding,dairy cows

andfarmed pigs.

Cattle, deer or pigs are

prohibited accesstosensitive

riversites suchasasalmon

spawning site or in adrinkingwater

protection zone.

Some non­intensive stock, such

as sheep,may accessrivers and

lakesprovidedtheydonot damage

quality.

Stock exclusion also forms part

practices aremet.

For intensivestock,ECan staff

respondto80 percent of incidents

withintwo days, or fivedays for

non­intensive stock.

Measures caninclude removing

intensive stockassoon as

practicable andthenworking with

landowners on preventive

measures such as fencing

waterways.

For non­intensive stock, staff

willensure no damage has

occurredand theneducate

landowners.

Staff investigateeachincident

to determine if enforcement

action is needed, in addition to

advice andeducation.Written

warnings notify of an offence and

require actiontobetaken.

Infringement notices, which

significantbreaches.

Abatement noticesare aformal

certain actions to be takenorto

ceasewithin aspecifiedtime.

Prosecutionisreserved for

offences so seriousthey warrant

proceedingsthrough thecourts.

ECan recommendsfarmersplan

andprioritise the fencingof

waterwayareas, including

wetlands, based on the

vulnerability of the land,

significance of thewaterway and

potential impact on water quality

off­farm.

Exclusion of extensivelyfarmed

stock fromwaterways in hill and

high country areas may not be

practical, butrather amix of

used to minimisesediment and

Supreme champion ... Te Mania 18555 was named supreme

champion Angus bull ahead of the National Angus Bull Sale

earlier this month.

PHOTO: SUPPLIED

Bull fetches $25,000

Will Wilding hasn’t seen his

prized bull in six months,

but has been getting rave

reviews.

The lockdown meant the

Te Mania Angus Stud owner

was unable to attend the

National AngusBull Sale in

Feilding on May 13, where

his bull Te Mania18555 sold

for $25,000after being

awarded supreme

champion angus bull.

‘‘There was some really

good feedback about him, so

that was good.’’ Willsays.

‘‘With thismeanttobethe

100thnational sale, we

wanted to make sure we sent

something special and are

very happy he got

recognised the same way.’’

The national sale was

movedonline through the

Bidr.co.nz website.

‘‘We normally go up to an

open day (in April) and then

the sale,but we haven’t been

able to go thisyear.

‘‘It’s been interesting

becausewereallywantedto

see him beforethe sale.’’

Will says he is hoping to

visit Te Mania 18555 later in

the year at his new home

near Taihape.

Te Mania Angus Stud has

been operating at Conway

Flat in North Canterbury

since 1928,having been

established by Will’s greatgrandparents,

Edwinand

Esther Wilding.

Today, the Wildings run

500 Angus stud cows.

The stud’s main on­farm

sale of 2­year­old bullsis

being heldnext month,

while ayearlingsale is held

annually in October.

‘‘The last yearwas areally

strong bull year, so it will be

interesting to seehow this

year goes.’’

Fruitful partnership ... North Canterbury Wellbeing manager Deirdre Ryan, left, with

Jenny Lake, of Ravenswood Developments, with an initial donation made by the

property company to the charity.

Subdivision company

steps up for trust

By ROBYN BRISTOW

RavenswoodDevelopmentshas swung

behind the work of the Community

Wellbeing NorthCanterbury Trust.

The developerofRavenswood

subdivision, just northofWoodend,will

donate $2000tothe trustfrom every

section soldinits Stage2residential

area untilthe end of the year.

This could boost the coffers of the

trustbyup to $26,000,with 13 sections

available in Stage2.

It comes on top of an initialdonation

of $5000 RavenswoodDevelopmentshas

already made.

Ravenswoodrepresentative Jenny

Lake says the company is all about

community.

The team at Ravenswood

Developments wanted to helpthe North

Canterbury community in atime of great

need. It decided to support the trust,

whichisworking in North Canterbury to

help families struggling with the impact

of Covid­19.

“Community Wellbeing North

Canterbury Trustisuniquelylocal to

NorthCanterbury and is facing

unprecedented demand,’’ Jenny says.

‘‘More thanever before,they needour

support to meetthis growing demand

and to help local families,”she says.

Community Wellbeing North

Canterbury Trustmanager Deirdre

Ryan says demandfor the trust’s free

social and community services has

increased significantly in recent weeks.

“Our Kaiapoi CommunitySupport

food pantry has seena150 percent

increaseindemand since the start of

lockdown.

‘‘Families who have never needed to

access our services before are now

coming to us for help.’’

She saysshe is delighted that

Ravenswood has chosentopartner with

the trust.

“Ravenswood’s generous donation

will help us to help NorthCanterbury

families strugglingwiththe impactof

Covid­19, right away.

‘‘Their commitment will also helpus

to respond quicklyand flexiblyto

emerging mentalhealth and wellbeing

needsofindividuals and families across

the Hurunuiand Waimakariri.”

The trust has begun aCovid­19 Crisis

Appeal.

“If we are to help our peopletonot

only survive this crisis, but to come

through it thriving, we must act urgently

and it cannot be donewithout your

help,’’ Deirdre says.

Housing market buoyant

By SHELLEY TOPP

Fears of adownturninthe real estate

industry following the Covid­19

pandemic are unfounded, saysBayleys

North Canterburymanager

Ross Ditmer.

‘‘We are not seeing any

price reduction,’’ he says.

‘‘Buyer enquiryisgoing

through the roof and we are

getting multiple offerson

many properties.

‘‘If you want to sell your

house,now is agood time

because thereisalot of

interest out there.’’

Mr Ditmer believes this is because the

Covid­19 lockdown has given couples

time to evaluate their future in thesame

way some do during the Christmas/New

Year holidays.

‘‘Often, properties go on the market

after Christmas when peoplehave had

the chance to sit down and chatabout

where they are going and what theyare

doing.

‘‘Our rural side of the business is also

showing alot of activity,’’ he says.

Ross Ditmer

‘‘In my personal opinion, the rural

side of things is going wellbecause

farmers haven’t been affectedasmuch

(during the Covid­19 lockdown) because

they havecontinued to work and

continued to produce, as an

essential service.

‘‘Life is more normalfor

them comparedtothe people

who have been in lockdown

unable to work.’’

There hasalso beenahuge

increase in interest from

overseas buyers,particularly

in rural properties.

‘‘The Bayleys New Zealand

websitenormally has about 15

percent of traffic fromoverseasbuyers,

but since lockdownitissitting at 45%.

‘‘For us, as aCanterburycompany, we

know of one couplefrom the United

Kingdom who have purchased a

substantial property (in WestMelton), so

there are people buying properties

without seeing them, that’s for sure.

‘‘I haven’t had any of my agents tellme

they havehad any sales from overseas

buyersyet but they have been dealing

with alot of enquiry.’’

Emma is back in business

By SHELLEY TOPP

Emma’s at Oxford is among araft

of business welcoming areturn

to more normal trading after the

Covid­19 lockdown.

Emma Gillard says the

lockdown restrictions have been

tough on her popular book and

gift shop, with trade 75% down on

the same time last year.

She says her shop has been

busy in the days following the

move to alert level 2, but she

remains ‘‘very grateful to every

single customer’’ in these ‘‘very

scary times'’.

She is celebrating reopening

by giving away afree copy of a

special book to North Canterbury

News readers.

English writer Charlie

Mackesy’s first book The Boy, the

Mole, the Fox and the Horse is

proving popular with shoppers at

Emma’s, with one of them buying

six copies and many more buying

It was published in October

last year and quickly gained

popularity, becoming an

international bestseller.

Reviewers worldwide have

heaped praise on the book,

calling it ‘‘a book of hope for

uncertain times’’, and ‘‘a window

into the human heart’’.

People who want to go in the

draw to win acopy of The Boy,

should email the newspaper’s

Someone’s Wife: AMemoir of

Sorts, by Linda Burgess

The title specifically refers to

Linda’s experience in the 1970s

of being married to an All Black.

In the opening essay, she

describes, pointedly and

amusingly, how the existence of

women barely registered in that

world, and when it did, it was

resented. In one deftly sketched

scene, the wives are refused

entry to an after­match function,

but told by the official that they

are welcome to help out in the

kitchen.

The Shearers, by Ruth Entwistle

Low

The Shearers is acolourful

account of the men and women,

past and present, who have

committed their lives to shearing

in New Zealand. Their voices —

in their own words, often brutally

honest reflections on the work —

are at the heart of this book: their

training, their tools, their

camaraderie, and the gruelling,

itinerant nature of the job.

Outgrowing God, by Richard

Dawkins

For anyone hoping to grapple

with the meaning of life and what

to believe, Outgrowing God is a

challenging, thrilling and

revelatory read.

Lockdown drives

creation of trail

By DAVID HILL

The Covid­19lockdown has

given birth to aNorth

Canterbury arts trail.

Kaiapoi artist Brent

Cairnssays local artistshave

been exploring ways to

attract visitorstoNorth

lockdown got the ball rolling.

‘‘While attending alocal

art exhibition lastyear we

got talking to local artistsand

thinking about what we can

do year round to foster the

buoyant local arts talent.

‘‘The lockdown was the

perfect opportunity to get

thingsrolling, and boy did

thingsstart rolling fast. A

website was created, a

Facebook pagecreated,

along with Pinterest,

YouTube and Instagram

pages all starting from

scratch.’’

The arts trail,described

onlineatArtist2U.com,

allowspeople to ‘‘enjoy a

drive in the countrysideand

visit local artists’’.

With largeevents such as

the Kaiapoi Art Expo in

doubt for theforeseeable

future, the new initiative

allowsartists to support each

other in reaching their

audience in creative ways.

Brent says the initiative

uses the sameideas he and

his wife, Shirley,successfully

used to selltheirartworkto

15 countries.

‘‘I am remindedwhen,

duringthe earthquakes,we

had no power, no water and

we were unable to live

onsite, yet we were still

getting orders from the

UnitedStates for our

sculptures.

‘‘We have foundthat many

peoplebuy local New

Kaiapoi Christadelphians

“The Key of Knowledge ..“(Luke 11:52)

THE ENTRANCE OF SIN

After God stating his creative work verygood, he gives direction to the man and woman.

Genesis 2:16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying “Of every tree of the

garden you may freely eat. But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shall not

eat of it: for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.

Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field that the LORD

God had made. He said unto the woman, “Yea, has God said Youshall not eat of every

tree of the garden?

verse 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Youshall not surely die:

verse 5 ForGod knows that in the day you eat thereof,then your eyes shall be opened, and

you shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

verse 6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant

to the eyes, and atree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and

did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her;and he did eat.

(By one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin: and so death passed on all men,

for that all have sinned Romans 5:12)

God questions their actions, whether they have disobeyed his commandment. The man

blames God and the woman, and the woman blames the serpent. (Sin is the transgression

of the law).

God’s judgement on the serpent -you are cursed above all cattle and every beast of the

field, you will crawl on your belly all the days of your life. There would be enmity between

him and the woman and between his seed and her seed, it shall bruise your head and you

shall bruise his heel. (One atemporaryblow and one amortal blow).

God’s judgement on the woman -God would greatly multiply her sorrow and conception,

in sorrow you shall bring forth children; and your desire shall be to your husband, and he

shall rule over you.

God’s judgement on the man -Because you have hearkened to the voice of your wife, and

have eaten of the tree, of which Icommanded you saying “You shall not eat of it, cursed is

the ground for your sake, in sorrow shall you eat of it all the days of your life: thorns and

thistles shall it bring forth to you, and you shall eat the herb of the field. In the sweat of

your face shall you eat bread, till you returntothe ground, for out of it were you taken, for

dust you are and unto dust you shall return.

But God in mercy,provided coats of skins to cover them, -the shed blood pointing forward

to aplan of redemption, life out of death.
