8 The North Canterbury News, July 16, 2020
By ROBYN BRISTOW
Apetition opposing aquarry at the
Rangiora Racecourse is gaining
When the North Canterbury News went
to print, 1700 people had signed the
Change.org petition within two days of it
being set up by Tracey DimmockRump.
She aims to get 2500 signatures in
opposition to aresource consent
application to quarry 700,000 cubic
metres of material over a15year period
inside the track at the racecourse and in
an outer area to the northeast.
She plans on presenting the petition to
Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon.
The North Canterbury News reported
on July 2that aresource consent had
been lodged with the Waimakariri
District Council and that several West
Belt residents were angry about the
proposal. Their concerns centre around
its impact on their lives, property values
and retirement plans.
Council regulation manager Nick
Harrison said the consent was in its
infancy and staff were seeking more
information from Taggart Earthmoving
Ltd on its application.
The petition says aquarry will affect
everyone living in Arlington and West
It asserts all houses, businesses,
preschools and parks will be affected by
dust and silt from the quarry. ‘‘The dust

alone will and could cause respiratory
issues for locals, let alone the preschool
practically bordering the quarry site.
‘‘It will coat roofs, gardens, cars and
roads and is going to make adrink at the
Five Stags in summer, outside, anogo!’’
The petition says increased heavy
traffic on River Road will affect all
locals who walk their dogs to the river,
ride bikes, walk the Rakahuri track or go
to the river for aswim.
‘‘It will also make the intersection at
the top of West Belt and River Road alot
more dangerous to navigate with the
increased truck activity.’’
The petition outlines the proposal,
which says the quarry will be limited to
work around horse training and events.
‘‘Who would want to be near it once the
ground is opened and exposed? It also
states they will cart gravel for 15 years,
but it will be restricting the motor

dust suppression —sure, that’ll work
just great on ahowling nor’wester!’’ Ms
DimmockRump says in her summary of
People signing the petition have
voiced concerns about the impact on
people’s health, the environment,
people’s property rights, devaluation of
properties and the dust nuisance.

Well-known furniture retailer Target Furniture has taken
the opportunity to open their latest store incentral
Christchurch –and it is certainly different from anything
Christchurch shoppers have seen before.
Target Furniture has had along-term presence in
Christchurch and has now relocated and reinvented
the shopping experience for customers with this new
The large, open store has gone and been replaced with
ashowroom that encourages customers to explore and
discover more asthey stroll through rooms that have
been created to showcase the furniture. Target has
partnered with Resene to illustrate the types of colours
that are proving popular in New Zealand homes, and
these are incorporated into the displays.
“Furniture shopping should be fun, easy, inspirational
and ahighlight of the customer’s shopping year,” says
“The new store isaresult of significant local and
international research, aconsiderable amount of recent
experimentation in existing stores and feedback from
customers,” says company director Rob Bielby.
Technology is another innovative feature ofthe new
store. Unlike traditional ticketing and signage, most of
the signage is now digital, creating amore personalised
message for customers and telling more about the
Target story and the services they offer.
Target is one of the first major retailers to use QR
(Quick Response) labels. This allows customers to scan
the ticket on their phone to get immediate access to
detailed information on the furniture, including sizes,
materials, guarantees, availability, and other items in the
Brochures are also available with details of the different
furniture ranges for customers not wanting to go digital,
Rob says, while staff are always onhand to answer
questions and offer advice.
There isalso adigital kiosk equipped with computers
where customers can log onto the Target website and
view the 2500-plus products online, with images also
displayed on Facebook and Instagram.
“We aim to highlight all the shopping options we offer
–digital and instore. Our point of difference is the
experience and we cater for all our customers’ shopping
preferences –from totally digital to totally bricks and
Prompt delivery is an important part of the customer
experience, Rob adds.
“We have invested in our own fleet of trucks and are
committed to regular weekly deliveries in Christchurch. Our
goal is to have furniture delivered into Christchurch within
10 days of being ordered, if it is available in our Auckland
Target Furniture islocated on the ground-floor level of the
Spotlight building on the corner of Moorhouse Avenue and
Durham Street, with several other furniture outlets in the
“This encourages customers to the area as they have more
options to look at,” Rob says, “and while customers do
have achoice, we believe we know how to buy for Kiwi
homes, and offer furniture that gives people the chance to
add adash of luxury to their home without it costing an arm
“Target is determined to shake up the traditional furniture
retail landscape making fashionable, practical and
affordable furniture available to everyone in ashopping
environment that surprises and delights.”

and the concept will be rolled out to all existing stores and

Eighty register for seminar on regenerative agriculture
By DAVID HILL
Apassion for regenerative
agriculture has led to a
Kaikoura woman organising a
seminar in her home town.
Sky Horton says she has been
blown away by the interest,
with more than 80 people
registered for the seminar,

The idea came after Sky
agriculture conference at
Lincoln University in March.
‘‘I thought, why not bring
these people to Kaikoura?
‘‘I have no hidden agenda.
It’s just me sharing my passion
for regenerative agriculture
and about how we can
implement it onfarm.
‘‘I have worked in the
industry and I’ve heard all the
concerns from farmers and I
thought ‘we can’t just keep
going on like this’.’’
She established aFacebook
page, Agregenz —
Regenerative Agriculture NZ,
and started aconversation.
‘‘I thought that it would be a
field day with half adozen
farmers turning up, but there
seems to be an appetite for
what we are talking about.
‘‘We’ve probably only got 10
people from Kaikoura coming
and the rest are coming from
all over, which is good, but it’s
pretty exciting to be able to
offer something like this for

“The Key of Knowledge ..“(Luke 11:52)
THE FALLEN ANGEL MYTH
Most religions teach of afallen angel or ‘evil one’, who
desires to cause man to take an opposing course to what
God’s word reveals. Is this atrueand reliable belief?
The Bible states in Hebrews 2:14 -For as much then as
the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also
himself likewise took part ofthe same, that through death
he might destroy him who had the power of death, that is,
the devil; and deliver them who through fear of death were
all their lifetime subject to bondage. For verily he took not
on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed
Taking this as atrue statement, that God is not aliar, then
whatever the ‘devil’ is it was destroyed two thousand years
ago. This is averyinteresting subject as it impacts how we
view the message of hope from the Bible.
