Relaxingthe rulesaroundthe

growingofcannabis plantscould

create 20,000 jobsnationally

within five years, industry

backers say.

Canterbury is at the heart of

the country’s fledgling cannabis

industry throughthe growing of

the lesspotent variety, hemp.

However, it is hamperedbythe

current law which still classifies

thisindustrial varietyofthe

cannabisplant as aharmful drug.

However, hemp contains onlya

fraction of the psychoactive

substances found in marijuana.

Brad Lake, aco­founder of

SouthIslandhemp producer The

Brothers Green, says avote to

legalise cannabis in this

September’s referendum will

likely see an easing of

restrictionsaround the growing

of cannabis and its hemp cousin,

as new legislation willbe

required to change the cannabis

laws.

Suchamove couldcreate

20,000 jobswithin five years,with

Canterburyfarmers leading the

way,MrLake says.

With tens of thousands of

people expected to be

unemployedbythe end of the

year becauseofCovid­19,now is

the time for change, he says.

“The opportunities are just

phenomenal, particularly for

young people who can really

grasp the potential.

“It’s young people we are

puttingatrisk if we don’tget in

behindthem and get some

reformaroundcannabis.”

Under the existing legal

framework,MrLake says afullspectrum

hemp oil, CBD

skin conditions and anxiety, with

Vandals enter ward

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Avalued map was torn in two

and windows and doors

broken by vandals in the

Chisholm Ward of the former

Queen Mary Hospital

recently.

The hand­drawn layout of

the Chisholm ward was

wrenched from its frame,

which was also wrecked,

after agroup of young people

entered the building and

caused about $2500 of

damage.

The drawing is not as old as

first believed, probably being

drawn in the 1960s or 70s.

Fortunately, acopy is held

securely in the Hurunui

District Council’s archives.

A19­year­old Rangiora

resident, who was part of the

group, has been arrested for

entering the ward. He will be

given achance to pay for the

damage, or could face

prosecution.

The alarm sounded after

the group broke into the

vacant hospital ward, which

resulted in police arresting

one offender. The others fled

before police arrived.

However, recently

installed security cameras

served their purpose and

Hanmer Security have clear

footage of all the offenders.

During the past six months

there have been three breakins

Cannabis could generate 20,000 jobs

“It’s so simple to makeand it’s just aplant

Canterbury, but we’re not allowed to use

that part of the plant.”

The state of Colorado, in the United

States, whichhas asimilar population to

New Zealand and legalisedcannabis six

years ago, now has acannabis industry

employing 35,000 people.

Last year,the state government

collected $320 million intaxes, Mr Lake

said.

“But in New Zealand, we don’t collect

any tax from cannabis and we have the

expense of resourcing the policeto

enforce the law.

“By turning it into ahealth issuerather

than acrime, you can control the quality,

smashed windows.

Ayear ago agroup of

offenders were prosecuted

after they caused $7000

worth of damage by kicking

in four rimu doors in the

Soldiers’ Block.

Hanmer Security general

manager Marc Tansey says

the constant break­ins and

vandalism are frustrating

and heartbreaking.

“Leave this place alone

and show it some respect.

‘‘There’s such history

the use and who is at risk.”

Last year, 100 hectares of farmland

near Culverden wasconverted to hemp,

whileMid­Canterbury companies

Carrfieldsand Midlands are bothgrowing

more than500ha, all supplying The

Brothers Green.

Being adeep­rooted plant, hemp can

access mineralsinthe soil which other

plants cannot reach,making it ahighly

regenerative crop. It creates adiversity of

productsfor farmers and an additional

incomesource, Mr Lake says.

Canterbury is the best place to grow

hempas“we are just so blessed with

water and irrigation”, and there is

support for the fledgling industry at

Canterbury and Lincoln universities, he

says.

“Weare working with the universities

here,” Mr Tansey said.

The Hurunui District

Council’s chief strategy and

community officer, Judith

Batchelor, said the doors,

worth $1000 each, are yet to

be replaced and the

damaged areas are currently

boarded up.

“The grounds of the

Hospital are still

maintained, but the

unoccupied buildings have

sadly been atarget,” she

said. “It’s mindless

vandalism.”

decisions.”

Mr Lakesays he cannot think of another

plant “that could create so many

opportunities”ashemp: anything from

food, fibre, oil, medication andeven a

natural alternative to plastic. There is a

growing export market, he says.

Growing hemp could also help

Canterbury farms become carbon neutral,

he says.

Research indicates dairy farmers who

convert 10 percent of their farm into

hempcould reduce carbon emissions by

at least 50%.

“So, if you converted 20% of your farm,

you could effectively becomecarbon

neutral, and what does that do for our

Town plans: ‘Good

things take time’

By DAVID HILL

Uncertainty aroundCovid­19 has

prompted theWaimakaririDistrict

Council to monitor howitimplementsits

Councillorslast week voted to adopt the

Rangiora Town CentreStrategy andto

establishaworkinggroup to oversee the

implementationofthe Rangiora and

Kaiapoitowncentre plans, and to address

any impactsfrom Covid­19.

The latestKaiapoi TownCentre

Crs Joan Ward, KirstynBarnettand

Community Board chairmanJim Gerard

and Kaiapoi­TuahiwiCommunity Board

chairwoman Chris Greengrasswere

appointed to the working group.

Cr Ward,who is thecouncil’stown

workinggroup, saysshe is excited about

the projects proposedfor thetwo towns.

‘‘Both Rangiora’sand Kaiapoi’s

businesses through Covid­19.

‘‘Weare alllooking forward to seeing

lots of new projects andwejust need to

getthemall under waysowecan create

jobs and look after our people.

‘‘My biggestproblemisIwant themall

to happen now, butgoodthings take time.’’

Oneofthe challenges facing thedistrict

is ensuringthere is enough

accommodation to support projects such

as StadiumWaimakariri, theproposed

aquasportspark in Kaiapoi and

promotingthe district as avisitor

destination.

‘‘Thestadium is exiting anditwill bring

‘‘Butweneed theaccommodation.’’

‘‘Oursubmissionsupportedall of the

do agree with someofthe submitters who

said theparkingstrategy needs to be

enhanced andsome long­term parking

optionsneed to be considered.

‘‘Overall it soundsquite exciting andit

givesussome key areas to focus on,’’ he

said.

Mayor to

take cut

in pay

By DAVID HILL

The mayor’s salary, Covid­19 recovery

and sustainability dominated

discussions during last weekend’s

Waimakariri District Councilmeeting.

Councillorsvoted 6­4 against accepting

acouncil report explaining that a

RemunerationAuthority decision would

see Mayor Dan Gordon’s salary cut by

nearly $7000 to $130,625for the next six

months because of Covid­19. This

equates to a10percent reduction.

But the outcome was never in doubt, as

the authority had already decreed that

all elected membersreceiving asalary of

more than$100,000 were to receive acut,

underlegislationpassed in May.

Mr Gordon voted in support of his own

pay cut,but Deputy MayorNeville

Atkinson, Crs Al Blackie, Philip

Redmond and Joan Ward spokeout

against it.

‘‘I believeit’s the wrong thing to do to

someone whenyou are leading the

community in acrisis,’’ Cr Atkinsonsaid.

Cr Redmond added:‘‘I think most

people are working harder to get us

through this crisis ...Ithink it’s

unfortunate thatyou are taking one for

the team, Dan.’’

Cr Blackie saidifthe mayor had to take

apay cut, all elected members should

take one of the samepercentage.

Business and town centresmanager

efforts to develop aCovid­19recovery

plan,noting agood response fromthe

‘‘Share an Idea’’campaign, which ended

on July3.‘‘Our sitehad 553 total visits

‘‘A lot of the ideas were around events,

Mr Hartsaid 29% of respondents saw

the wellbeing of residents as thetop

priority among the six work programmes,

with 25% identifying development sector

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Dear Editor,

One has to admire the

imagination of the overworked

creative minds at our

Waimakariri District Council

who work out all these

wonderful­sounding titles for

positions of seemingly inflated

importance. Such roles create

nothing but expense for the

long­suffering ratepayer, in my

view.

The latest crop took the cake:

Those attending afunction at a

supermarket had the longwinded

titles of social services

Waimakariri co­ordinator,

council community

development facilitator and

community team manager.

Dare Isay that grandiose

titles may entitle these positions

to grandiose salaries?

My mind boggles.

Yours,

What is happening to our democracy?

By DANIELMAXWELL, FederatedFarmers

North Canterbury Meat and Woolchairman

Farmers who believe in democracy and

fairness, and feel thatmoves to lessen our

environmental footprint need to be

tempered withwhat is practical and

affordable, will be shaking their heads at

the recentaction of the Government.

You could accurately say they have

thrown democracy out thewindowwith the

freshwater.

In the face of amajority of 17,000

submissions pointing out major pitfalls in

its original EssentialFreshwater package

last year, some of the proposals that would

have been most destructive of farmer

livelihoods werewound back abit.

But plentyinthe Cabinet’sfinal

decisions are still ineffective or

unworkable, suchasthe requirement to resow

awinter crop paddock within30days,

and no winter cropping on aslope greater

than 10 degrees, among many others.

The challenges of

By JOANNE GUMBRELL, chair of the

Age­friendly Waimakariri Advisory Group

Someofwhat is happeningtoday

of aproject Iworked onfor alocal

authority in Britain.

Thename speaksfor itself.

Thecustomer was at the centre of our

services. We asked them what they

wanted, rather thantell them what we

In line with council key priorities,the

WaimakaririAge­friendly Advisory

Group, at its last meeting, shared what

we knew about gaps for older folk,

particularlyduringlockdown.

interested parties, including SeniorNet

and theCitizensAdvice Bureau, to

explore ways to help our olderresidents.

Banking is difficult forsome folk now,

with everything being done digitally.

Gone are the days when we could take

our bills to the bankand someone would

pay them for us.

older people.

Many older people worry about their

money and getting their bills paid.Will

easy, either. Some think they might be

seen as afailure.

Covid­19 changed the order ofmany

things.The huge volunteer force of older

people has dwindled.

The advisorygroupwonders if perhaps

younger individuals made redundant

could take on some of these roles while

looking for employment. There are many

plusses for intergenerational

interaction, which is disappearing as the

world gets busier and housing is

categorised into age groups.

Now we findout that the Government

inserted clauses in the Resource

Management Act amendment legislation

after the final select committee stage to

makeclimate change aconsideration in

resource consent hearings.

Thiswas despite assurancesthat the

amendment bill wouldstick to narrowly

focused issues ahead of the pending and

well­signalled overhaul of the Resource

Management Act.This quite underhand

way of bypassingdue processdenied the

public,stakeholders, councils, and

resource users any chance forasay.

There was no opportunitytosubmit,

providehearing evidence, or considerany

cost­benefit or regulatory impact analysis.

Petition opposes

quarry proposal

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Apetition opposing aquarry at the

Rangiora Racecourse is gaining

momentum.

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

Rangiora.

It asserts all houses, businesses,

preschools and parks will be affected by

dust and silt from the quarry. ‘‘The dust

THE 2020 GENERAL ELECTION

AND REFERENDUMS

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

scraper to 30% activity per day and they

could start at early as 7am Monday to

Saturday.

‘‘So, guess what, the noise will become

afactor too! Awater cart will be used for

dust suppression —sure, that’ll work

just great on ahowling nor’wester!’’ Ms

Dimmock­Rump says in her summary of

the proposal.

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.

Afleece of colour ... Shirley Peddie’s champion fleece from aHawarden A&P Show.

Acolourful woolly tale

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The Anglican Church HallatAmberley

The North CanterburyBlackand

Coloured SheepBreeders Association will

hold its 22nd annual sale on Friday,July 31

Whilemembership has shrunk over the

Stalwarts Shirley Peddie,from Waikari,

and JaniceWinter, from Kaiapoi,say

crowds flock to buy fleeces to spin, card

and knit.

‘‘We breed for the spinning sideofthe

wool.There are amazingcoloursfor sale,’’

Shirley said. ‘‘We know whatpeople want

and it is all this season’s freshwool.

‘‘We are really very, very fussy,with our

wool and theway we presenteach skirted

Shirley willhave around70Corriedale

She says the sale is really the onlyoutlet

for her wool, as beinginWaikarilimited

the opportunities for her to sell it

elsewhere to spinners and crafts people.

Selling to awool buyer did notyield a

realistic price. ‘‘If Ican’t sellthe wool

there is no point in having the sheep.’’

Her flock is the resultofdecadesof

breeding,takingover the flockfrom her

mother.

Addington as ayoung girl, attracting

why she had bought them. Her appetite

The large, open store has gone and been replaced with

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

Rob.

“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

range.

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

mortar.”


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

distribution centre.”

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

vicinity.

“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

and aleg.

“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.”

Target Moorhouse is the first of the new-generation stores

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

new stores that are planned.

High country track

reopens in October

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Covid­19 andthe closing of the borders has

opened up an opportunity for peopletosee

adiverse rangeofNorth Canterbury

landscapes and vegetation.

The formerHurunui High Country

Trackhas beenre­opened as the Island

HillsStation Track thankstothe efforts of

ShaunMonk, along­time friendofthe

station’s owners, Dan and Mandy Shand.

Shaun, who has spent alifetimeoffering

backcountryand bush adventures all over

New Zealand, suddenly found the overseas

clientelehetargeted had dried up with the

Covid­19 response.

He knew he hadtochange direction

quickly, so approached the Shandstosee if

he could re­open the trackthey had closed

abouteight yearsago, when station life

became too busy because of otherprojects

and family.

‘‘We had ahoney business in Waipara

whichgrew quite abit, andthen there

were children and we weredoing afew

otherthingswhich became very timeconsuming,

so we closed the track,’’ Dan

says.

However, when Shaun, who had been

targeting the Australianand other

overseasmarkets for father­and­son bush

and hunting adventures,approached them

to re­openthe track, theybacked the idea.

Dan says Shaun and agroup of

volunteers begancutting tracksand

improved the two and three­dayoptions

whichmeander through the high country

farmland and privatenative forest

reserves.

Accommodation is provided along the

way.

Shaun’s wide knowledge on wildlife,

plants, conservation, bushcraft, mountain

safety and New Zealand’s unique history

are an added extra whilewalking the trails

or relaxing around the campfire.

Adventurous children and dogs,who

must meetstrictcriteria, arewelcome.

The walks startjust 20 minutes inland

from the historic Hurunui Hotelonthe

way to HanmerSprings.

The self­guided privatetrail covers

30km and can be managed over two or

threedays.

Although high in themountains, the

placement of the track makes it suitable

for anyone with areasonable level of

fitness andwalking ability.

The three­day walk is the most popular,

with two­day options for those withless

time and alittle more fitness.

The track is limitedto10people each

day who are guaranteed abed each night.

Adetailed pamphlet of information is

provided about the surrounding wildlife,

stories about IslandHills, and amap

showing points of interest.

The journeybegins at the cookhouse,

wherehikers are met by the dutytrack

ranger for abriefing. They are then taken

by four­wheeldrive to the start of the track.

Packsare transportedtothe next

accommodation, although day packsare

needed forlunches, water and extra

clothing.

The track will openinOctober. To learn

Conservation incentives proposed

By DAVID HILL

The Waimakariri District

Council is considering offering

landowners incentives to help

protect biodiversity as part of

its District Plan Review.

Councillorslastweek

approved in principal a

proposal to offer aresource

consent pathway for ‘‘bonus

lots’’ and additionalhousingon

rural­zoned land to offsetthe

costsofprotecting indigenous

biodiversity.

Staffwill now draft achapter

as partofthe council’s District

Plan review.

‘‘Council staff have been

investigating how to best

manage the ongoing declineof

indigenousbiodiversity

through the District Plan

review process,’’ Mayor Dan

Gordon says.

‘‘Thecouncilapproved the

development of achapter in

the upcoming draft District

Plan to provide incentives for

protecting areas of biodiversity

by allowingsubdivisionand

development incentives, as

well as ‘bonus lots’and

‘transferable development

rights’.

‘‘This is beingdeveloped as a

pathway to encourage and

provide incentives for

landowners to protect

biodiverse areas.’’

Asurvey of landowners with

listed significant natural areas

foundthat most would respond

well to incentives, but there

were different views about

what incentives would appeal.

Conservation plan ... Native bush on afarm. Landowners could be offered incentives to protect

biodiversity under aWaimakariri District Council proposal.

PHOTO: SUPPLIED

Somelandowners believed

their natural areas were well

looked after, capable of

‘‘looking afteritself’’ or was

‘‘too overgrowntobeworth

doing any additional

maintenance’’,astaff report

says.

The council soughtfeedback

on transferabledevelopment

rights andsubdivision

incentives, which are

commonly usedbyNorth

Island councils,but around 80

percent of respondents had no

knowledge of these options.

Asubdivisionincentive

would allowfor the

development of a‘‘bonus lot’’

in exchange for protecting a

natural areainperpetuity,

while transferable development

rights allowed a

landowner to sell the rightto

subdivide in an open market.

Some landownerswere

opposed to theseincentives,

citingconcern overadverse

effects to rural character.

Otherswere open to the idea

of subdivision incentives and

some wanted more

information.

The survey findings found

that ‘‘monitoring requirements

associated with subdivision

incentives didnot put landowners

off’’, the reportsaid.

One landowner indicated

some positive feedback would

provide the biggestincentive,

whileanother alreadyhad

land under aQE2 covenant.

Extrapest traps,funding for

fencing and waiving consent

fees were also suggested by

landowners as incentives.

Respondents also asked for

more support with planting.

The proposal still needs to go

through theDistrict Plan

process,sothere will be

opportunities forresidentsto

have theirsay, Mr Gordon says.

Morethan1000 square metresof

wetlandhas been fenced offalongLyell

Creek/Waikoau at the backofaMill Rd

property in Kaikoura, to help keep stock

out of the spring­fedstream.

Two additionalsprings and five

overland flow paths feedingintothe

streamhave also beenprotected.

AKaikoura fencer, landownerand local

farmers have worked with Environment

Canterbury (ECan)stafftoprotect and

enhancethe natural wetland.

Around$14,000 has beenspenttofence

Kaikoura Zone Committee’s ‘‘on­theground

actionsfor freshwater’’fund.

ECanlandmanagementand

biodiversity adviser Heath Melville says

the fencingcreatesabufferaround the

existing wetland and willallow native

vegetation to colonise thearea.

‘‘There aresome springs in there,

supportingagoodpopulation of native

rushes,orwiwi. Giveittimeand keepon

top of the weeds, and it willdevelop into

an impressivewetland,” he says.

‘‘Excluding stock permanently willlimit

nutrient lossintothe stream, improving

water quality and freshwaterhabitat.’’

TheKaikoura Plains Recovery Project

reportfor the Lyell catchment,supplied

by the National InstituteofWater and

ECan the ability to takeatargeted

‘‘We’ve reduced nutrient loss from

“Wefeel fortunate to get assistance on

aims to finish its Kaikoura work by the end

IMAGE:NEW ZEALAND TRANSPORT AGENCY

Final push on projects

Work to strengthen Kaikoura’s roading

network remains on tracktobecompleted

by the end of theyear.

The North Canterbury Transport

Infrastructure Recovery(NCTIR)alliance

is set to officially wrapupits construction

works,whichbegan afterthe November

2016 earthquake,onDecember 15.

Project director Tony Gallaghersays the

work has comealong way sincethe

earthquake.

‘‘By 2017wehad reopened vital

transport connections, with freight trains

returning in September, and State

Highway 1reopened by December.

‘‘Since then, our teams have been

working to strengthen the corridor for

futuregenerations,’’ Mr Gallagher says.

Last month,NCTIR hit six million work

hours on the project, withmore than 9000

peopleinvolved since work began.

‘‘Thisrepresents ahuge amount of

human effort and we want to makeevery

hour count by creatingsomethingweare

proud of, and that the Kaikoura

community can be proud of forthe next

100 years.’’

Two large projects remaintobe

completed, including apermanent

rockfallprotection canopy to be installed

southofPeketaand stabilisation works

near the SouthBay Racecourse.

‘‘It’s abusy time, and we appreciate

people’spatience and ongoing supportas

we reach the home stretch. The

countdown is on to December 15,’’Mr

Gallagher says.

NCTIRhas started work to reconstruct

and realign asection of SH1 above the

racecourse, where an earthquakedamaged

retaining wall has slumped.

The realignment work willrun between

the intersections of South Bay Paradeand

Killarney St, with the roadbeingmoved

over by the width of one laneinsome

sections.

Safety improvements alongthis stretch

will include anew left­turning bay into

SouthBay Parade, afootpath/cyclewayon

the southbound side of the highway,

widening the road embankments and side

protection.

Initially,the team will cut outthe old

embankmentand rebuild it wider.Then a

two metrehigh temporary retainingwall,

known as apreload, will be builtalongside

the top of the northbound lane.

This preload spans 240 metresand the

weightofit willallow the land to settlein

preparation for theconstruction of anew

lane.

The preload is expected to be removed

in September, when finalroading can

begin.

New rockfall protectionisbeing

installed around arockfall­prone corner

south of Kaikoura to improve thelongterm

safety between Peketa and the

Paratitahi Tunnels.

More than 70 rockfall incidents have

been recorded in this area sincethe 2016

earthquake, with the mostrecent beingin

February.

It resulted in thehighway being closed

to trafficovernight.

The agreed solution for this 325­metre

section of roadconsists of three parts,

including asix metre high canopyto

redirect fallingrock to asafe zone away

from the road,meshing and one­metre­tall

barriers.

Eighty register for seminar on regenerative agriculture

Apassion for regenerative

being held tomorrow (Friday).

The idea came after Sky

attended aregenerative

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

Kaikoura. It’s about getting

people together to have a

conversation.’’

North Island farmer Peter

Barrett, of Linnburn Station,

an exponent of regenerative

agriculture, appeared on

Country Calendar in April and

Sky believes this helped spark

some interest.

The event kicks off with

registration at 10.15am.

It has support from the North

Canterbury Rural Support

Trust and industry groups, she

says.

Farmer looks to diversification

By DAVID HILL

Rural sectordiversityisthe

key to supportingNorth

Canterbury’s Covid­19

recovery, says Cameron

Henderson.

Speaking afterthe recent

Waimakariri Jobs Summit, the

Federated FarmersNorth

Canterburypresident said he

was thrilled to hearthe

speakers talking up the

contribution of the ruralsector

in challengingtimes, with new

opportunities such as growing

hemp and manuka oil.

‘‘It was really interestingto

hear some verypositive

comments about the

importance of agriculture.

‘‘I thinkfarmersare looking

for new opportunities. They

see thatalot of whatthey are

doing at the momentprobably

does have alimited lifeand it’s

agood business measure to

diversify.’’

There was alot of interest

among farmers in growing

hemp and cannabis, and Mr

Hendersonsaidhewould be

watching thisyear’s cannabis

referendum with interest.

Cameron Henderson ... Farmers are looking for new opportunities, he says.

‘‘It grows reallywell in

Canterbury. Ithink the growing

ability’s not the challenge. It’s

goingtobehow much we can

sell and who’s going to do it.

‘‘I’mnot saying whichway I

wouldvote, but as with all

agricultureinNew Zealand,

it’s the export marketthat

makesthe difference, so

regardless of what happens in

New Zealand there is a

growing market overseas,

particularlyinmedicinal and

non­drug products,and the

fibre content.’’

Cannabis as arotation crop

could complementany farming

practice, Mr Hendersonsays.

The ruralsectorwas facing

Fluid Kaiapoi side in convincing win

By LINDSAY KERR and

PETER WILLIAMS

Kaiapoi maintainedits season’s

momentumwith another

convincing 44­10win overa

plucky Ashley side in the latest

round of North Canterbury

premier rugby.

Both teams had apositive

mindset and afluent,freeflowing

match ensued.

Kaiapoi was dominant in all

aspectsexcept goal­kicking.

Despite trying acouple of goalkickers,

it was not untilthe side

scored its seventhtry thatone

was converted.

Ashley,onthe other hand,

courtesyofKorbyn Gray, kicked

an early penalty andconverted

the only try Ashleyscored.

Kaiapoi’s backs again looked

dangerous as aunit. They were

wellserved by Codey Grimes at

halfback, whileDante Love and

Rob Samson both continued

their rich vein of form and Shak

Bassi on the wing madethe most

of arare starting opportunity.

The Kaiapoi backs are getting

their chancesbecause the

forwards are providingthem

witharegular supplyofquality

ball. The tight fiveall played

their part, with Nacanieli

Namata in particularquite

outstanding.

Anotherfeature of the team’s

playisthat its players are

constantlymakingthemselves

available in support of the ball

carrier,enabling acontinuity

of play to be achieved. Jarrod

Smith was arguablybestinthis

respect.

RUGBY

For Ashley, Reuben King stood

out for his wholeheartedeffort,

while NaariaWilson­Bairds and

Matt Cookewere othersto

Credit to Ohoka

Ohoka travelled deepinto

Glenmark­Cheviotterritoryand

emerged with considerable

creditafter sending ashockwave

through the campofits more

fancied rivals camp, holdingthe

side to a17­alldraw.

However, despite its spirited

effortagainst the defending

champions, Ohoka still finds

itselfinadifficult position on the

competition tablewith only three

weekendsofround­robin

competitionremaining.

This was aclashinwhich

Glenmark gained mostofthe ball

and territory, but struggled to

finishmany promising

movements.

Ohoka produced achampion

effortondefenceand made the

most of its scoringchances.

The sides were locked 10­all at

half­time and, nearing full­time,

it was 17­all. Then,along range

Comeback win

Oxford camefrom 13­21 behind

to beat Hurunui 30­27 in ahardfought

but disruptive game at

Culverden.

Hurunui’s momentum was not

helpedwhen it lost centre

HunterJohnsonwith a

dislocated hip. He was not moved

and was taken to hospitalby

While Hurunuilooked the

betterside in the opening

exchanges, Oxfordwas amore

committedunit in the second

spell,scoring three tries in that

time.

With time beckoning, there was

confusion in the Hurunui ranks.

Its players thoughtthat apenalty

had won the side the game, only

to findthey were stillfour points

behind.

The accurate boot of Angus

Mitchell and Dan Brooker, who

scored two tries, headed the

Oxford comeback.Inhis first

start, Tom Chamberlain had a

After being flogged the week

beforebyKaiapoi, Saracens

ran in 10 unanswered tries,

for Woodend.

With the scrap for afinals

Added to this equation is

the fact that the two leading

Joyless weekend for Rangiora

HOCKEY

Rangiora’s senior hockey

teams did not fare well over

the weekend, with several

playersaway during the

school holidays.

The Rangiora Hurunui

mid­week women were the

only team to claim full points

with awin against Harewood

—the side’s first win of the

season.

The ever­improving

Rangiora CBK Division 1men

did well to restrict second­onthe­table

Carlton Redcliffs to

a2­all draw.

But that was all the points

that Rangiora Hockey Club

teams could muster.

Despite abrace of goals to

Macy Neale, the Rangiora

CBK Division 1women could

not edge Carlton Redcliffs in

atense and close battle,

finishing down by one.

The Division 2and 3

women’s teams also lost, but

weren't helped by new

playersbeing called into the

teams because of holiday

absences.

The Rangiora Allsorts midweek

men were their own

worst enemies in alacklustre

performance against the

Hornby Rebels.Few chances

were forthcoming for

Rangiora, and when they did

the goals went begging.

Kiwi Sticks and Mini Sticks

junior hockey starts this

weekend, with six­a­side

games at the Dudley Park turf

and the Kaiapoi High School

turf.

Ball tussle ... Krystalena Roberts, in green and gold, in action for the Rangiora Division 2Women’s team.

RangioraHockey Club has

several boys’ andgirls’ teams

in both of these competitions.

The club also has agroup of

young umpiresstarting this

weekendinthese grades.

It is probably the greatest

number of new umpiresthe

club has seen for several

years.

“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

of Abraham.

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.
