Business

outlook

gloomy

Awinter wonderland

takes shape

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Business closures and redundanciesare

looming in North Canterbury as the

impact of Covid­19 hitsthe region.

The latestNorth CanterburyBusiness

Opinion Survey by Enterprise North

Canterbury (ENC)also shows adrop in

business confidence.

The survey, conducted during alert

level2in May, included 154 businesses

from the Waimakariri and Hurunui

districts. Six percent said they faced the

possibility of closure in the next six

months, while 1% had already shut.

Atotal of 74% saidthey expectedthe

general business situation in the country

to deteriorate over the nextsix months.

ENC business support manager Miles

Dalton says the survey doesn’t paint a

positive picture, with most businesses

struggling.

‘‘We knewthat would be the case as

we’vewatched Covid­19 affect

businesses acrossthe globe overrecent

months and no regionhas been

untouched. But we are seeing some

positives coming through, too,”hesays.

“For example, 20% of surveyed

businesses have seenanincrease in

profit, recruitment levels remain steady

and local businesseshave reported that

it has become markedly easiertosource

new unskilled and semi­skilled staff(net

gainsof28% and 23% respectively),and

slightlyeasier to source skilled

employees (net +6%).’’

‘‘What we can say, however,isthatthe

NorthCanterbury regionisbetterplaced

longer term to weather the impact of this

crisis due to our economy’s lower levelof

reliance on international tourism.’’

Mr Dalton says ENC will continue to

work hard to support businessesasthey

face challenges fromCovid­19.

Great start ... Mack the dog checks out avery appealing base at Mt Lyford.

By ROBYN BRISTOW

One more good dump of snow and Mt

Lyford will open for the ski season.

Hamish Simpson, who manages the

North Canterbury field, says there is

already agood covering and he is

hopeful snow forecast this week will be

the icing on the cake. ‘‘Snowdependent,

we could open at the

beginning of July.’’

This would be in time for the school

holidays later in the month. However,

it could open sooner if this week’s

snow made the slopes viable for skiing.

Mr Simpson says pre­season

preparations are nearly finished, and

staff recruitment is done, which had

taken abit of time because of the

Covid­19 lockdown.

Ski­hire gear had been upgraded,

with around 120 sets of skis available

for hire. The popular tubing luge using

hard­bottomed tubes, alongside the

learners slope, was all set to go, along

with the lifts and tows to take

experienced skiers up the mountain.

The Lake Stella mountain huts,

managed by Tim Simpson, are already

proving popular. The four huts were

busy with guests last Saturday night

and there were several who stayed

again on Sunday night. ‘‘People are

wanting to get out and about and enjoy

the mountain atmosphere after

lockdown,’’ says Hamish.

Fears over legalising cannabis

By SHELLEY TOPP

ARangiora man seriously injured in a

road crash caused by an alcohol and

cannabis­impaired driver believes the

drug should not be legalised.

Trevor Whitesuffered abroken sternum

and other serious injuries in the crash

caused when theother driver‘‘in a

borrowed car, decided to overtake on a

blindcorner, in fog’’.

The resulting collision wroteoff both

cars,damaged another, and puttwo

people in hospital.

‘‘I wasone of these,saved fromdeathfor

another day,’’ he says.

Trevor says he is ‘‘disturbedand upset’’

by the New Zealand Drug Foundation’s

recent high profile,‘‘soft push’’advertising

campaign to support legalisingcannabis in

the September 19 CannabisControl

Referendum to be heldinconjunction

with the GeneralElection.

‘‘It is not ahealth issue, nor doesthe law

have the abilitytomake things safe,’’he

says.A2017 research report by the

University of Waikato’s School of

Psychology for the New Zealand Transport

Agency linkedcannabis to an increased

risk of performing unsafe driving actions.

This,itwas found, dramaticallyincreased

in drivers who had also consumed alcohol.

Research by the New Zealand

Automobile Association (AA) concurs with

this finding.

‘‘A little­known danger with cannabis is

that the impairment effects skyrocket if it

is combined withalcohol or other drugs,’’

says Dylan Thomsen, the AA’sprincipal

communications adviser for motoring

affairs.

‘‘Even asmall amountofalcohol, plus

cannabis, equalsextreme risk on the

roads.

‘‘TheAAhas called drugged drivinga

silent killer on our roads because, for a

long time, it flew underthe public radar,

despite drugs beinginvolved in manyfatal

crashes.’’

Trevor believes driverimpairment

through cannabis use willprove to be less

controllablethan alcohol.

The push to legalise cannabis is also at

odds with the Government’s long­term goal

of reducing smoking prevalence and

tobacco availability to minimal levels,

Trevor says.

Businesses struggle following lockdown

From Page 1

Meanwhile,Waimakariri MP

Matt Doocey saysfor many

Waimakariri businesses there

is an air of desperation and

fear of theunknown. But there

is also asense of optimism and

confidence in the future.

He says thosethat have

survived the lockdown are

now reaching out to their

community for support to help

them pull through.

Some had fallen victim to

the lockdown, or closed for

otherreasons; others were

teetering on the brink due to

the border closure, such as

travelagencies, he says.

The MP’steam called

businesses, community groups

and local residents throughout

the lockdown to offer help.

‘‘We wanted to checkinwith

them and seehow theywere

and let them know what help

was available,’’ he says.

There was good feedback

about the wagesubsidy. ‘‘It

was awelcome relief. But

many were concerned there

was littlesupportfor them in

the senseofhelping with

cashflow,’’hesays.

Motelsstillhad fixedcosts,

with one needing $15,000 a

month to make ends meet.

‘‘Thesebusinesses are quite

concerned about their ability

to pay their fixedcosts,and

there werereal concerns

about the relationship

betweentenantsand

landlords in some cases.’’

However,therewere also

good stories about landlords

looking aftertenants, and both

looking aftereach other.

Lessons from the Canterbury

earthquakes and how

communities supported each

other, are againtothe fore,he

says.

Ayoungbusinessman, with

young children,who found

himself withnoincome but

still had billstopay, was an

example of people supporting

eachother.

‘‘His landlord gave him

somefavourable terms,and he

evenhad suppliers ringingup

off theirown bat to reduce

their costs or offering to defer

payments.

‘‘Hewas prettyclose to

tears. He didn’t expect that

level of support.’’

He says it is now up to the

community to support local

businesses.

Still on agenda ... The Hurunui District Council continues to eye opportunities for developing the Soldiers’ Block in Hanmer

Springs.

Next steps for block approved

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The Hurunui District Council will

continue with abusiness case to

develop the Soldiers’ Block at the

former Queen Mary Hospital in

Hanmer Springs into amulti­use

facility.

The council approved the next steps

for the block at its council meeting last

week, including refining the financial

modelling.

The multiple uses proposed for the

Soldiers’ Block include acommercial

and creative shared hub, acommunity

space for hire, awar experience, a

cafe, afunction space with a

commercial kitchen, amovie theatre,

and temporary worker accommodation

with amanager’s flat.

The council is aiming for aproject

that strikes the right balance between

economic return and community use,

and which does not create afinancial

burden on the district’s ratepayers.

It will now turn its focus to demand

projections, operating costs and

whether astaged development would

be preferred, with the cost being met

within existing budgets.

The council’s chief strategy and

community officer, Judith Batchelor,

PHOTO: FILE

says the council has been exploring a

range of options to fund the capital

development of the project, including

infrastructure ‘‘shovel­ready’’

Funding, the Provincial Growth Fund,

and Lotteries Commission funding.

“From discussions with funding

agencies, it has been made clear that

projects that are shovel­ready are

being given priority.’’

She says to get shovel­ready, the

project needs the financial modelling

refined, the layout confirmed and

secure community or council funding

in place for the non­grant portion of

the development costs.

Oak stump crafted into table

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Asmallpart of astand of oakseast of

Rangiora, felled on private property to make

theRangiora­Woodend cycleway safer, live

on.

Nick Gyde, whose woodworking skillswere

reignited when gifted alarge oak stumpfrom

theproperty, hasturned acouple of slabsinto

astunning table.

Nick had been pondering whetherhe

would be cheeky enough to ask if he could

buysome of the timberfrom the trees.

He was humbledwhen theownerswere

‘‘lovely enough’’ to give him agiant oak stump

further down theproperty.

‘‘Iwas then faced withtwo options. Get a

sawmillerout and see if they could transport

it away and cutitup, or do a‘hack and slash’

jobmyselfwith dad’schainsaw.’’

He chosethe latter,and set to work on

cuttingslabs, destroying his father’s

chainsaw in the process.

Butafter aweek he had managed to salvage

eight slabs, two metreslong, fromthe stump,

that had been sitting for six months.

‘‘Itwas aheck of aprocess.Iworked flat out

to cut and slab it on site,’’hesays.

Friends and familyhelped transport the

slabs to his parents’lifestyle property at

Okuku,where Nickbuilt astoragefacility to

drythem and ashed to workin.

Eight months later, he began work.

‘‘It was the first time Ihad workedona

table. It was all doneusinghand tools

becauseIdon’t ownany big tools, aside from

an orbitalsander.’’

Sixweekslater his masterpiece was

finished.

‘‘Therewas alot of learning thatwent into

it.There were somedozey partsand weaker

parts that Ihad to remove and use resin.

‘‘Iknew what Iwanted to do, but had never

done it before. Ifoundpeoplearound

Christchurch who had used resin.

‘‘It was avery interestingexperience. A

couple of times things endedinfailures and

Ihad to cut them out, and startagain.’’

Nickused twoslabs to makethe piece —

one cut in half for legs,and one for the top.

The slabswere 80mm thick and he ended up

getting an engineer to help attach the legs

withsteel brackets hiddentostrengthen

them.

‘‘I am going to keep it,’’ Nick says of the

finishedpiece. ‘‘It is the firstpiece thissizeI

haveever made. ‘‘Itisabsolutely stunning,’’

he says.

The remainingslabs are beingleft to dry,

and Nicksays he will be looking to make a

couple moreresindining roomtables

because he loveshow his firstattempt turned

out.

He wouldlike to makeone for his parents

as athank­you.

‘‘They were sick of the dustIwas creating.

It was everywhere,’’ he says.

Nickhas also craftedwalking sticks, one of

which has gone to his grandmother.

He workswith whatever he finds on walks

in the bush fromfelled trees and from

windblowntimber.

Labour of love ... Nick Gyde stains his oak table.

Nick says the only drawbacktocrafting

anything big is he no longer has access to his

parent’s garage because it’s now filledup

with his father’s gear.

‘‘I might havetobuildasecond shed.’’

market

set to

return

By DAVID HILL

Rangiora’s Blake St

market will return this

Sunday.

With the move to alert

level 1, the popular

Rangiora Sunday

Market in the Blake St

car park will return as a

monthly attraction

during the winter,

market founder Arthur

Linnell says.

‘‘Since the move to

level 1was announced

I’ve been flooded with

people wanting

information about stalls.

‘‘I’ve had alot of

enquiries from visitors

to the market, messages

and phone calls asking

when are we going to

reopen, so Ithink we will

get agood response.’’

Arthur says the market

will become fortnightly

again in spring.

The Rangiora Sunday

Market is afundraiser

for the North Canterbury

Model Railway Club, as

it looks for more

permanent clubrooms.

At present, the club is

based in abuilding next

to the Blake St car park,

but the long­term future

is uncertain as the

Waimakariri District

Council is developing

plans to construct a

parking building on the

site.

‘‘The market and our

clubrooms have some

certainty for the next six

months, but we just take

each month as it comes,’’

Arthur says.

He says the Thomas

and Friends train layout

will be available in the

clubrooms during the

market from 9am to 2pm.

He is also hoping to

have Thomas and

Friends back for

KidsFest during the July

school holidays, with the

venue to be advised.

Jobs summit planned

As our community faces further job

lossesorreduced incomes as aresult of

Covid­19, it will be important to work

together to support business confidence

in the WaimakaririDistrict.

According to arecent article in this

newspaper, the numberofpeople

receiving Jobseeker support has

increasedbyalmost 300, risingfrom 557

at the end of March to 847 at the end of

April.

It is vital to our community’srecovery

that we support local businesses, which

provide jobs and incomes for our

community.

The challenges we face presentan

opportunity to get arange of business

peopletogether to ask one question: at a

time of economic downturn, how do we

keep peopleinjobs and grow new jobs?

The WaimakaririJob Summit, which I

am organisinginJuly,will aim to provide

answers on how we achievethis.

The summitwill harness the ideas of

our business community, looking at

fundamentals such as infrastructure,

spending and improved regulations, and

will identify local driversofbusiness

confidence that will enable people to

investingood businessesthat create new

jobs and sustain existing ones.

We know thatwith local job losses,

therewill be increased demandonour

communityservices and accessto

frontlinemental­health services willbe

more important than ever.

The chairofthe New ZealandMedical

Association has toldthe Epidemic

ResponseCommittee, of which Iama

member, we can expect to see increased

mental health problems over the next 12

months and beyond.

Current wait times to accessservices

will not begin to meet anticipated

demand.

Iask anyonewho is abletosupport our

frontlinecommunity groups in any way to

please do so. As acommunity, we are all

in thistogether.

Transport and roading will top the

agenda whenIbring National’s transport

spokesperson, MP for Hutt South Chris

Bishop, to the Waimakariritomorrow.

He will meet withstakeholders,

including the WaimakaririDistrict

Council and the Keep SH1 Safer

Talkswill include having aregional

We're better off returning to the Catchment Board days

Recent musings by Jamie

McFadden in last week’s North

Canterbury News are

important to all who have a

stream, creek or river within

or close to their boundaries.

Most of what Ihave read in

recent times appears to

involve inventing rules and

regulations by people who

have very little, if any, real life

experience of living with

waterways.

Ihave done so in one place

for more than 80 years.

The Weka Creek has been

my bath in drought times and I

have had to swim it hanging on

to ahorse simply to get to the

other side of the farm. It was

running too high for atractor.

That experience, if you like,

is much like that of asailor —

The north branch of the

Waikari and, until it enters my

Weka Pass through limestonebased

Eye to the future ... Rangiora High School staff and pupils learned alot from lockdown.

Lockdown an online

learning showcase

By DAVID HILL

The Covid­19 lockdown has provided

plenty of learning opportunities at

Rangiora High School.

The school has focused on exploring

the future of education over the last two

years, so the lockdown provided the

opportunity to see it in action, associate

principal Paul Donnelly says.

‘‘We have learned alot from the online

learning experience and that will help

shape how we develop our learning in

the future.’’

Since school reopened, parents have

been surveyed and staff and pupils

interviewed to gather data on their

experiences, and this has been mostly

positive, Mr Donnelly says.

Principal Karen Stewart says the

experiences varied depending on the

individual, with some students thriving

with the flexibility, while others

struggled in the online

learning environment.

Mr Donnelly says it shows

there is still an important

role for schools.

‘‘I think secondary

education is totally evolving

and becoming more

responsive to the changing

nature of learning and the

changing workplace, and

that’s one of the big lessons

from the lockdown.

‘‘During the lockdown

students really missed the

social and physical networking of faceto­face

contact with their peers and

seeing their teachers.

‘‘On reflection, it’s raised the desire

through the profession to be adaptive

and to recognise that there are other

ways of teaching and recognising the

strengths of aschool in having people

together.’’

While Google Classroom was the

primary learning tool, heavy use was

made of social media as pupils sought to

connect with each other, but it was not as

good as actually being at school, Ms

Stewart says.

Virtual assemblies and avirtual Anzac

Day service were successfully held

during the lockdown.

Acasualty of the lockdown was the

second annual careers expo,

which was to be held this

month.

The expo was first held last

year as an innovation to help

young people transition from

school to tertiary education

and the workplace by engaging

with prospective education

providers and local employers.

‘‘We have had to postpone

the expo until next year,’’ Ms

Stewart says.

‘‘We made the call just before

lockdown, but it will become

even more critical in the new

environment. We are not losing that

opportunity and we will provide

opportunities for our students in

different ways next term.’’

While many jobs of the future are yet

to be conceived, Mr Donnelly says

schools have important roles to play in

teaching young people life skills, to be

problem solvers, adaptable, resilient

and creative.

and more debris and sediment, raising

the streambed over time until it is above

The result? It will burst out andcarve

This will not be an “Act of God”. It will

be the price of negligence by the state.

increasethe nesting success

of the terns.

Both activities have

lessened mammalian

predatorsand weeds which

threaten their habitat.

Hedgehogs, stoats,

weasels,cats, rats, mice,

possumsand the southern

been targeted due to their

hunger for eggs, chicks and

occasionally adult birds.

Black­backed gulls are

significantpredators of birds

Bryonsteps up

to help others

By DAVID HILL

Asking forhelp andgettingtheright

supportare the biggest challenges for

men struggling with mental health.

Rangiora’s Bryon Cope has battled

mental health issues his whole life and

has devoted the last 15 years to helping

others.

‘‘Thenumberone thingthatcomes to

mindistheinabilityfor mento askfor

help.Alot ofmenwho I’veworkedwith

havealimited vocabulary when it comes

to feelings, so they may become angry.

‘‘It’s OK to be angry; it’s what you do

with it.There’s afineline between

getting angryand appropriately

expressing anger.’’

Bryon says finding someone to talkto

is noteasyasfewpeople‘‘aretrained

aroundlistening’’.

A barrierfor men seeking help is a

lackof menworking in themental

healthsector,whichcan potentially lead

to an expressionofanger beingtaken

thewrong way.

‘‘Theangercan becomethe issue, and

notwhat theman is actuallythere for.’’

Earlier this year, Bryon spoke at the

Mental HealthFoundation conference,

with justfourmen amongagroupof35

professionals coming to listen to his talk.

‘‘Iasked themto think of asecretthat

no­one knows and tellit to someone in

the room that you don’t know.

‘‘None of themwanted to do it,soI

said:‘that’s howitmaybeformen when

they are askedtotalk when seeking

help’. Howdo you talk aboutsomething

that you don’t have avocabulary for?’’

He advises those seeking help should

‘‘shop around’’ to findsomeone theycan

developarapportwith.

‘‘You never buy the firstpairofshoes

youtry on in ashop.’’

After15years working in mental

healthand addiction, Bryon

experienced bullying and suffered a

breakdown last year,spendingtimein

hospital. Hecontemplatedtakinghis

life.

Before his breakdown,Bryon sought

❛You can do all the right

things and still get unwell.

It’s amatter of picking up the

warning signs before you hit

the bottom of the bell

curve.❜

—Bryon Cope

help from key people whom he trusted.

‘‘Ihadtoacknowledge my dietwas

rightandIwas doingthe fivewinning

ways to wellbeing,but somethingwas

stillmissing.SoIwant to let people

know. You can do all the right things and

still get unwell. It’s amatterofpicking

up thewarningsignsbefore you hitthe

bottomofthebellcurve.’’

Bryonis no strangerto struggles with

mental health, as ‘‘a lack of positive role

models’’ led to him drinking and

smoking dope from the age of 12, until

making aconscioussuicide attempt at

age29.

‘‘I hadlots ofunconscious attempts

likedrink­driving,caraccidents andlots

of risk­taking behaviours.’’

His story appeared on season two of

Nigel Latta’stelevisionseries, The Hard

Stuff.Hehas alsospoken at twoWorld

Suicide Symposiums in Christchurch.

Bryon is on asickness benefitwhile he

recovers from last year’s breakdown, but

has started to volunteer with the

DepressionSupport Network.

‘‘I’m gettingstrongerevery day. It’s

about doing the small things —small

things matter. Routines are important. I

make sure Ihavebreakfast every

morning; Igosomewhere public so I’m

not isolated. Idosudokuand Ijustneed

to be gentle with myself.’’

He says recovering from abreakdown,

is ‘‘like learningtowalkagain andit’s

notgoingtohappen overnight’’.

‘‘Justdon’tgiveup every time you

bang yourheadorfall over. Andmake

sure you seekthe help youneed.’’

In particular, some SMEsare struggling

Greater flexibility for taxpayers in

respect of statutorytax deadlines;

Changes to the tax loss continuity rules;

Atax loss carry­back scheme;

Further business consultancy support;

Measures to support commercial

tenants and landlords.

Meanwhile,the localeconomic

Tax changes support recovery

New legislation introduced to

Parliament earlier this month is aimed

at supporting growth and helping

businesses recover, Revenue Minister

Stuart Nash says.

The Taxation (Annual Rates for

2020­21, Feasibility Expenditure, and

Remedial Matters) Bill proposes that

businesses get tax deductions for

feasibility expenditure on new

investments.

‘‘We’ve already introduced research

and development tax credits to support

investment in research and

development.

‘‘This new proposal is the next step in

giving businesses the confidence to

invest in growth, even when some of

their ideas don’t work out,’’ he says.

Mr Nash says business owners say

costs incurred in exploring anew asset

or business model are often not tax

deductible. This can deter them from

investing in growth and innovation.

‘‘The new legislation addresses these

barriers to help unlock investment.

‘‘Businesses would be able to claim a

deduction spread over five years for

feasibility expenditure incurred in

investigating anew asset, process or

business model even if it is subsequently

abandoned,’’ he says.

To reduce compliance costs,

particularly for small and medium­sized

businesses, qualifying expenditure of

less than $10,000 would be immediately

deductible in the current income year.

‘‘This helps with business cashflow.

‘‘We are supporting Kiwi companies to

innovate and grow by making it easier to

invest in new assets and business

models. Current rules can be

problematic.

‘‘We are making the system fairer and

keeping compliance costs low for

businesses,’’ Mr Nash says.

The bill also contains the following

proposals that have previously been

subject to public consultation:

Scammers attempt to prey on taxpayers

InlandRevenueiswarning people to be

wary of scammers during the2020tax

refund season.

Taxrefundsare automatically

processed andpaidbythe department

up until theend ofJuly. It is atime

scammersmay trytoscamtaxpayers.

This year, the department will send

about2.5 million automaticallyassessed

taxrefund notices using bothcustomers’

myIR accounts andthroughthe post.

These will be sentdaily in batches,

Monday to Friday, until theend ofJuly.

Changes afoot ... Anew bill before Parliament aims to support growth through tax

changes.

New rules governing purchase price

allocation, where parties to the sale of

two or more assets with different tax

treatments allocate the sales price

between the assets for tax purposes;

New rules from the ongoing review of

the taxation of land, particularly in

relation to investment property and

speculators. The changes will improve

encourage productive use of land and

properties;

Allowing dairy and beef cattle farmers

Here is what thetax departmentwill

It will letpeopleknowifthey have a

It will only payfundsdirectlyinto the

Drought effects linger ... The region may be green, but that does not spell the end

of the drought.

Recentrainfails to

end Canty drought

While useful rain has landed in North

Canterbury in the last two months, it

has not been sufficientortimely

enoughfor afull recovery from drought

heading into winter.

The chairman of the Hurunui

Adverse Events Committee, Winton

Dalley, says the rain has movedthe

district to a‘‘green drought’’, with feed

coversat50to60percent of normal

levelsonmany farms.

He saysmany farmers have acted

early and prepared by buying in feed,

destocking and findinggrazing.

‘‘Thisisone of the few benefits of

past drought experiences,’’ he says.

Mr Dalley urges those new to the

district to not underestimate the value

of local knowledge fromtheir fellow

farmers, particularly if thereisadump

of snow.

‘‘If you are new to the district, get

some advicenow from neighbours who

have been in this situation in the past.

‘‘An extreme snow event is atime

when we see neighbours really pull

together. There is still feedout there,

so get it now for winter.’’

He says the AgriHQ Feed

Noticeboard can help, and he advises

that farmers use the freefeed planning

and feed co­ordination services which

are running this monthfor farmers all

over the country.

Meanwhile, farmers in dry partsof

North Canterbury can expect aphone

call to checkonhow they are doing as

the region movesinto winter.

North Canterbury Rural Support

Trust co­ordinator Claire Ford says the

calls are areminder to farmers that

support is available. The phone

campaign is alsogivingthe trust a

chancetoget afeel for farmer

wellbeing after along lockdownperiod

in drought, she says.

‘‘Generally,farmers seem to be doing

well, withtheir main concernbeing

how they will cope for feedifthey get

ahard winter or abig dump of snow.’’

The Meat &Wool chairman of North

Canterbury Federated Farmers, Dan

Maxwell, says whilemost people will

have aplan in place for snow, it would

pay to think about how to cope with an

extreme event.

‘‘Givesome thought to where you can

position your stock so they have

sufficient shelterand access to feed

supplements if possible, and have

sufficient animal health supplies on

hand to deal withany sleepy sickness

that may arise’’ he says.

Snow guidelinesreleased by Beef+

Lamb New Zealandhas useful

management and feeding tips to help

develop aplan.

‘‘You can finditontheir websiteor

give your local rep acall,’’ he says.

The Ministry for Primary Industries

also has advice on its website on

looking after livestockaffectedby

snow.

Feed co­ordinatorshave been

appointed to help connect farmers

with available feed sources. Theyare

co­ordinating offers and requests in

each region, workingwith the primary

sectorgroups and trusts.

To use the service, farmersneed to

First division contest to launch

RUGBY

By LINDSAY KERR

SuperRugby's reintroduction

last weekend prompted

considerable hype and

anticipation. Closer to home,

excitement is building at the

prospect of rugby’s return in

North Canterbury.

The eight division­1 teams

all had hit­outs last Saturday

against sides from either

Ellesmere or Metro.

Perhaps the feeling of

players, officials and

spectators alike was summed

up by an Ashley playerduring

hisside’sgameagainst

Lincoln,with hiscommentto

‘‘this is exciting!’’

Withthecombined country

competition scrapped for 2020,

However, the futures of

Fijian stars Sake Aea and

Sunia Kubu are in doubt.

The 2019beatenfinalist

Kaiapoi matured over the last

season. Theirconfidence

remains, particularly after two

excellent pre­season games.

One was awin against

Belfast in the annual battle of

the bridge. Matt Newton,

looking for that trend to

continue.Earning asemi­final

spot last season against

Glenmark, Ohoka come to 2020

with good numbers and more

“The Key of Knowledge ..“(Luke 11:52)

GOD’S PROMISES TO ABRAHAM

The man Abraham is apivotal figure in the purpose of God. What

do we know about him? He is first mentioned in Genesis 11 and

12, called by God to leave Ur of the Chaldees (Mesapotamia) and

head North West to the land of Canaan, where God proclaims

he will give this land to his seed. Genesis 12:7 and 13:14-17.

This required faith as he and his wife Sarah had no child. In

time he has achild-Ishmael, born ofSarah’s maid, but this

is not the promised seed. Sarah, too old to bear naturally is

miraculously given conception and she bears Isaac-the seed

promised to inherit the land. This refers to his descendants and

in particular the Lord Jesus Christ. Galatians 3:16. Faithful

followers are included as heirs of the promise in verse 29.

The promises God makes to Abraham are essentially the

gospel - Galatians 3:7-9 Therefore the gospel is not aNew

Testament teaching alone. It is the whole purpose of God

with Israel in the Old Testament, and the nations in the New

Testament. God’s mercy always provides hope. TODAY isthe

day of opportunity.
