Brisk trade over school holidays

By ROBYN BRISTOW

School holidays helpedkeep

the tills ringingatNorth

Canterbury businesses, but

manyare now waitingtosee

whatthe future holds.

The HanmerSprings

General manager Graeme

Abbot is thrilled and relieved

withthe responsefrom Kiwis,

manyofwhom arrivedfrom

the North Islandonaroad

‘‘Weare delightedand

reallypleased withthe volume

of peoplewehad through.

Visitorswerenot just from

Christchurch but from allover

the place.’’

LastMonday wasmuch

quieter, but was stillOK, he

said.

However, Mr Abbot says the

complexisnot out of the

woods by ‘‘anystretch of the

imagination’’.

Nevertheless, he was

pleased that tills were ringing

and peoplewerehaving a

greattime.

The Cheviot Tearooms

enjoyed abusy couple of

tearooms open in thetown,

with ThePaddock forsale and

Cheviot PromotionsInc

secretary GaryMitchell said

thetearooms did‘‘amazingly’’

well, anditwas business as

usualfor otherlocal firms.

‘‘There is more traffic on the

road thanthere was following

it opening up after the 2016

quake,’’ Gary says.

At thattime there were

threetearooms and all

survived.However, the

lockdown seems to havebeen

thefinal straw.

Mr Mitchellsays

Ribbonwood Country House,

just north of Cheviot, which he

runs withhis partner Robert

Day, had beenflat overthe

school holidays.

‘‘Howeverschool holidays

Sustainability continues to be afocus

for the Waimakariri District Council.

Crs Niki Mealings and Al Blackie

were appointed to a‘‘sustainability

strategy steering group’’, along with

council staff, at last week’s council

meeting.

Chief executive Jim Palmer said the

steering group would help the council

to get ‘‘our own house in order’’ before

championing sustainability in the

community.

‘‘It’s about making sure we are doing

the things we should be doing in our

organisation and, once we are

confident with that, we can go out into

the community with our sustainability

message.

Cr Mealings said she was excited to

finally be able to make some progress

on developing asustainability strategy.

‘‘This is really important to our

district and our whole country and we

need all of you on board.’’

Mayor Dan Gordon said: ‘‘The

adoption of asustainability approach

within the organisation complements

the need for new approaches to the way

council goes about its business,

including playing its part in

transitioning the country to alow

emissions economy by 2050.’’

Down side of cannabis

needs to be pointed out

DearEditor,

Yourfront page on July16glorified the

growingofcannabis withthe promiseof

20,000jobs andthe collectionofmillions

of dollars in tax revenue.Italso seemedto

be an active attempttosolicit a“yes” vote

in the coming referendum. It is important

to notethat theproposedbillweare

voting on doesnot cover medicinal

cannabisorthe growing of hemp as these

are already legal.

Yourstory does not mention the ‘‘down’’

sidetolegalisingcannabisuse.

As agrandfather,and not an expert in

thisfield, Iamconcerned aboutthe

negative effects of cannabis usefeatured

in the many studies thathave been done

and that Ihave read about.These have

found thatcannabis usetriples the riskof

developingpsychoticsymptoms,thatit

doubles therisk of domestic violence, that

the rates of murder andassaults have

increasedmuch faster in the states in the

US thathave legalised than the restofthe

country, and that thenumberofdrivers

involved in fatal caraccidentsinColorado

and Washington,and whohave tested

positive for marijuana,has soared.The

costtoour country from theresulting

mayhemwillcertainly be morethanthe

tax collected.

It is also verystrangewhenweasa

nationhave realproblemswith alcohol

and heavilydiscouragepeoplefrom

smokingcigarettes, that we would now

encourage the use of another addictive

substance.That is why it wasbanned in

the first place. Do we not learn?

Yours,

A.D.Wethey

Gobsmacked

DearEditor,

As aresidentofNorth Canterbury Iwas

gobsmacked andinfuriated last night

whenIreturned home fromwork and saw

the front page of the North Canterbury

News,whichinmyview espoused biased

and ill­informedviews.

Iamall for people statingtheirviews

but to utilise the situation we are

currentlyinwith apandemicand rising

unemployment as apotential swaying

point in the upcoming referendum makes

me angry. Iamsure there manyothers are

disappointed with ourlocalnewspaper.

There was no even representation of

bothsides of theissue to vote yesornoin

the upcoming referendum.

Ilivedand worked in Coloradofor 30

years.Istillhavemany friends in

social history, politicsand its people well.

opinion, paint afalsepicture of the

situationnow facing Colorado and its

residents.

Frommystandpoint, and thatofall my

friendsinColorado andother states in the

US, is that monumentaldamage has

occurred fromthe legalisationof

cannabis. Massive increasesinmental

health issues, familyviolence, teen

suicide,vehicle fatalities, drugaddiction

and loadsofother social issues far

outweigh the small contributionsthat

legalisingcannabis and thetax funds

raised have broughttostates thathave

legalised the drug.

Iwould welcomearticles fromthe North

Canterbury News thatgive allthe facts so

thatthe public hereinNew Zealand can

be informed of allthe issuesaround

legalisingcannabis. It is our young people

who aregoing to suffer alifetime of harm

frompotentiallylegalisinganotherdrug.

Legalising cannabis,inmyview, will

damageour communities and social

infrastructure,aswellkiwisyoungand

old.

Iwould askthe media here in New

Zealandtogoand takeapoll in the states

of the US thathavelegalisedcannabis

whether, if theycouldroll backtime,

would they vote differently.

Iwould suspect from talking to my

friendsinthe US thatthe pollwouldshow

that sentiments havechanged drastically

on theissue. The problem is they cannot

turn back time andnow thatitislegal it is

nearlyimpossibletoget awayfromall the

negative effects on society.

It is my view thatthe North Canterbury

News should notbeputtinginformation

like they have donethis past week on the

frontpage.

Yours,

Linc Burgess

(Abridged)

Claptrap

Dear Editor,

In reply to MichaelSmith’s letter on

cannabis reform on July 2, Iask:How

naive can you be?

Theletter is fullofclaptrapand naivety.

A‘‘no’’ vote in the cannabis referendum

is avote againstnaivety and apositive one

forgoodold­fashioned commonsense.

Let’sremain theenvyofthe world —

nuclear­freeand intolerant to all drugs.

Vote no.

Yours,

Vince Flynn,

Volunteers are being sought to

give avoice to accessibility

issues in the Waimakariri

District.

The Waimakariri Access

Group(WAG)isseeking new

recruits. Chairwoman Chris

Greengrass says accessissues

can affect awide cross­section

of society.

‘‘It’s something thataffectsa

lot of people. It could be a

sightimpairment, ahearing

impairment or aphysical

impairment.

‘‘It includes wheelchairs,

motorised scooters, Zimmer

frames, evenpushing prams,

and it can be along­term or a

short­termdisability, such as

thoseoncrutches.’’

When talking about

accessibility or disability,

Chrissays she preferstothink

aboutitas being inclusive.

‘‘Most people as theyget

olderwill develop adisability,

but we don’t evenhavetobe

old. When Iwas playing

netballmany years ago, Idid

my cruciate ligamentsand I

was on crutches for awhile,

and you soonrealisethat

doorscan be so heavy and

stairs can be achallenge.’’

WAG, she says, provides a

voicefor asector of the

community, whichprobably

includes most people at some

pointintheir lives.

Efforts such as ensuring

advertisingboards and

clothing racks are not

blocking footpaths, replacing

heavy doors with automatic

sliding doors, providing

menus in largeprint and

havingquiet areasincafes

can make abig difference, she

says.

WAG membersadvise

More weather extremes ahead

By SHELLEY TOPP

Climate change will affectWaipara’s

grape­growing region, it was revealed

last week.

The potential impact of climate

change on grape­growing in Canterbury

was outlined at apublicmeeting

at Amberley Schoollast week.

The meeting, hosted by Resilient

Hurunui, was held to announce

findings from the 2019Climate

Change Projectionsfor New Zealand

Wine Regions research project

carried out by the National Institute

of Water and Atmospheric Research

(Niwa).

It was commissioned by the Bragato

Research Institute,asubsidiary of

New Zealand Winegrowers.

Niwa was askedtoanalyse

projectedclimate changesfor nine

wine­growingregions including

Northland,Auckland,Gisborne,

Hawke’s Bay,Wairarapa,

Marlborough, Nelson­Tasman,

Canterburyand Central Otago.

The report’s leadauthor,Niwa’s

climate, atmosphere and hazards

manager PetraPearce, outlined the

research at the meeting, explaining

the climatic modelling used to make

the projectionsand whatthey might

meanfor growersinWaipara.

The predictions included more

extreme high temperatures and

heatwaves, fewer extreme low

temperatures, ageneral decrease in

early spring and summer rainfall,

withsome increases in late summer

and autumn, largerextreme rainfall

events, and minimal change to

drought potential.

Andrew Lorrey, Niwa’s principal

scientist for climate and

environmental applications, also

addressedthe meeting.

Bragato’s principalresearch

scientistfor grapevine improvement,

Darrell Lizamore, alsoattended, but

was not aguest speaker.

He said climate research would

help winegrowers make long­term

plans to decide what grapevarieties

would be most suitable in the future.

The meetingattracted alarge

crowd,including Omihi sheepand

beef farmerNick Hamilton, whose

farm is in Waipara’s grape­growing

country, nexttoBlack Estate Wines.

He said the meeting was

worthwhile.The projections were

relevant for allfarmers, not just grape

growers, and were ‘‘not as dramatic’’

as he had feared.

‘‘There wasn’tquiteasmuch detail

as Ihad hoped, but there areno

guarantees, no definite blueprint for

what is goingtohappen. It is their

best guessand we havetowork with

that.’’

Cust recycling

trial extended

By DAVID HILL

Cust residents are

relieved to see the

return of their recycling

service.

The Waimakariri

District Council recently

agreed to reinstate the

service for afurther sixmonthtrial

in the spring,

afteritwas put on hold

because of the Covid­19

lockdown.

Cust Community

Network (CCN) secretary

Yolande Lawrence says

residents are pleased

and relieved.

The further six months

will allow the original

trialperiod of one year

to be completed, to gauge

interestinrural

recyclinginCust.

CCN received alot of

feedback from residents

wanting to know when

the bins willreturn,she

says.

‘‘TheCust community

is really keen to reduce

our carbon footprint by

recyclinglocally and

reducing waste to

landfill.

‘‘CCNhopestorun a

localeducation day in

the spring to help

encouragepeople to

recycle correctly and

promote recycling and

bin use by rural

residents.’’

Cust’s recycling

scheme was launched in

Julylastyear by former

mayor David Ayers. It

was putonhold as the

countryprepared for

lockdown.

The council’s solid

waste asset manager,

Kitty Waghorn, says nine

months of data has been

gathered.

While therewere

someinitial ‘‘teething

problems’’, therewas

gooduse of the siteby

locals,with 40.8tonnes

of recyclingcollected

during the trial period,

she says.

‘‘Ingeneral, the

recycling was acceptable

and there was alow level

of contamination.

‘‘However, we

understand that there

havebeen some issues

withunacceptable

materials being thrown

intothe bins, and that

the publicans have been

removing these

materials as well as

keepingthe sitetidy.’’

Somesealing work

willberequiredbefore

the facility could be reestablished

after the

winter, Ms Waghorn

says.

Plastic-free as away of life

By SHELLEY TOPP

Plastic­Free July is aglobal

movementchallengingpeople to

reduce plasticuse, but for Eco­

Educate’sLesley Ottey, it is just

business as usual.

Lesley’s SouthbrookResource

Recovery Park­basedbusiness

provides informativeworkshops for

schools, communities and the health

sector to show people simple ideas

to help reduce waste. ‘‘I am not that

fussed on having aplastic­free

monthbecause Ithink every month

should be plastic­free,’’ she said.

‘‘If we all just look at the little

things we can do daily to reduce our

use of plastic, we canachieve

change.’’

Swapping plastic shopping bags

for reusable bagsand containers

was agreat example of how to make

astart, and if consumers were not

happyabout the plasticused to wrap

or dispensethe products they buy

(suchasthe plastic scoops

contained in manybrands of soap

powder) they should ‘‘feeditback to

the manufacturer’’,Lesley says.

‘‘Allthese manufacturers have

consumerhotlines seeking

customer feedback,and if everybody

voices their concerns we may see

change.’’

PaulaDouglas, an administrative

assistant for Three Waters, a

division of the Waimakariri District

Council’s utilities and roading

department, has also been

encouraging colleaguesinweekly

newsletters on the council’s intranet

to make ‘‘simpleswaps’’ in daily life

to reduce plastic waste.

Thesecan include initiatives such

as buying groceriesfrom outlets

with bulk bins, usingbeeswax food

wrapsfor lunchtime sandwiches,

and buyingproducts in glass rather

than plastic containers.

‘‘Theproductsinglass containers

oftentend to be made in New

Zealand, too, so thisisalso agood

way of supportinglocal

manufacturers,’’ she says.

Purchasing areusable waterbottle,

and usingsilk dental floss and

bamboo toothbrushes werealso

simple ways of reducing everyday

use of plastic.

Poor recycling

habits revealed

By DAVID HILL

Waimakariri residents are

being asked to check what

they put in the yellow

recycling bin.

Recent yellow­bin audits

have revealed some

residents have got into

‘‘bad habits’’ after the

lockdown.

Mayor Dan Gordon puts

the change in habits down

to ‘‘mixed messaging’’,

which resulted from

recycling being sent to

landfill during the

lockdown while recycling

facility, Eco Central, was

closed because of Covid­19

restrictions.

‘‘There was mixed

messaging around the

waste collection coming

out of Christchurch, saying

that you could put

anything in your yellow

bins because it was going

to landfill.

‘‘It takes alot to get

people recycling anyway,

so once people get into bad

habits it can take time to

get them back into good

habits.’’

The result is too many

yellow bins are failing

council waste audits.

As the contents of yellow

bins are emptied into a

truck, it can take just one

bin with the wrong items to

contaminate atruckload.

‘‘We are back doing

waste audits on properties

so we can then identify

those who are doing the

right thing and those who

are not,’’ Mr Gordon says.

‘‘We need to turn this

around and get people

back to following the good

practices they were

following before the

lockdown.’’

Eco Educate rethink

educator Lesley Ottey says

‘‘there is room for

improvement’’ and her

advice is simple.

‘‘If in doubt, throw it out.

As long as it’s not

hazardous it can go in the

red bin and batteries can

be dropped off at the

Southbrook Resource

Recovery Park.’’

There are options the

council can consider for

repeat offenders, including

disincentives and even

the removal of the service.

Advice is available on

the Waimakariri District

Council website around

what can go in yellow bins.

Much of the confusion

surrounds plastics, with

the yellow bin now accepting

only rigid plastic

containers and bottles

marked with a1,2or5.

All other plastic,

including lids and soft

plastics, need to go in the

rubbish.

Socks keep ballet dancers on their toes

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Designers dance socks are

helping point budding ballerinas

in the right direction.

They are also helpingwarm the

feet of childreninneed.

JennaMcKenzie, the principal

of the JennaMcKenzieSchoolof

Dance, has transformed the

humble sock into an attractive

and magicalteachingaid, and

her ideahas capturedthe

imagination of her students, and

the ballet world.

For everypair of balletsocks

Clever idea ... The socks help

youngsters learn ballet. PHOTO: SUPPLIED

sold, The Dance Sock Academy

Ltd,acompany formed by Jenna

to make socks,donatesapair of

sports or school socks to Kiwi

children in need through The

Clothing Project.

Jenna loves to make ballet

magical and interestingfor her

students and uses imagery and

props to help them with their

technique.Socks, withfairies,

wands, stars,with afew strings

attached,are nowproving to be

an invaluable extension to this.

The socksgrew out of achat at

ateachers training courseon

how to teachchildren the

technical side of ballet without

making it tedious and onerous.

Imaginingstrings pullingat

their heels,mice under the

insteps to keep themfromrolling

their feet, and fairiesontheir

toestomake sure their knees

pointed in the right direction

haveall beenhelpful,along with

stickersontheir feet.

But an actual pairofsocks with

visual marks childrencan see

and touch are proving far more

effective.

Jenna, who learntballet from

the age of 6, has taught dance in

Rangiorafor 19 years, and also in

London for atime. She madea

mockpair of socks after the

course to see how the children

responded.

She did some ‘‘terrible’’

sketches of her ideas, then

turned to glueing somestringson

socks and introduced themtothe

class.

‘‘They thoughtthey were the

bestthing ever and it really

encouraged me to workto

developthe idea further.

‘‘I then wentahead and

designed 10 special features to

assist danceteachersinclass and

students practising at home.’’

It tookayear to develop the

design,incorporating alifetime

of dance­teaching tricks.

Create DesigninRangiora

helped the project cometolife

with final designs for the socks, a

logo and the Sock Academy

website. Jenna then beganthe

search for amanufacturer who

could make goodquality,

affordablesocks, and support a

charity.

Her search ended in Taiwan,

as finding someone in New

Zealandwilling to take on the

projectproved fruitless.

However, she has not given up

being able to findalocalmaker

in the future.

The end result is acleverly

designed sock with colourful

characters,including afairy, a

unicornand asuper cute mouse

—all favourites of kidsofall ages.

‘‘It has beensopositive. Iam

excitedaboutbeing able to help

other dance teachers and

students aroundthe worldand

The ClothingProject.’’

The Jenna McKenzie School of

Dance takes part in annual

recitals, exams, competitions and

public performances.

There areabout 500 students at

the school.

Severalpast students have

moved on to fulltimetraining and

have become successful teachers

themselves.

‘‘Itotally loveteachingdance,

it reallyismypassion.’’

Competition

to proceed

By DAVID HILL

Neroli Goldadmitsshe wondered

whether the popular 48 Hours in

Kaikoura photography competition

wouldgoaheadthisyear.

Despite ongoing uncertainty over

Covid­19, the annualcompetition will

run nextmonthasitnormallydoes.

Neroli saidshe didsome soulsearchingbefore

making the decision.

‘‘It was because Ididn’t want to

approach anyone for sponsorship

because I’m aware manybusinesses are

doingittough, but Ifound the local

businesses werestill keen to be involved

as theysee it as agoodway of promoting

the town.’’

Firstheld in 2002, the photos capture

Kaikourainamoment in time and

ultimatelyhelp to tellthe history of the

town,especially for images taken before

the 2016 earthquake, Neroli says.

Last year’swinningentry, Weathered,a

picture of the Whakatu WharfbyKate

Fielder, is acase in point, she says.

It will soon be pulled down for

redevelopment.

Photos needtobetaken over 48 hours

during the weekend of Saturday and

Sunday, August 1and 2, with entries

needing to be in by August 20, ready for

judging the next day.

The annualexhibition of entries will

be heldinthe Kaikoura Libraryfrom

August 22 to September 5.

Acalendarofthe last year’s

competition imageswas delayed, but will

be availablenext month as aSeptember

2020 to August 2021 calendar. They can

be ordered through the competition

Keep your pets happy

and safe this winter

Kathy Preston, aveterinarian with the Rangiora Vet Centre, offers tips

and advice about caring for your pets, and looking after them in winter.

Is your pet abit stiff and sore thiswinter?

Your cat or dog, especially if they are

aged over7,may be displayingearlysigns

of arthritis.

Signs of thisincludestiffness when

getting up fromlying down and areduced

ability to jump.

This can progress to limping when

walking or running.

By the time they are crying out in pain,

the arthritis and pain are verysevere, so

do not leaveitthis long before seeking

veterinary helpfor your pet.

There are evidence­basedsupplements

available at vet clinics which can improve

joint health and ease early discomfort.

Vet clinics alsostock excellent sciencebased

dietswhich havebeen proven to

help your dog walk, run and jump more

easily, as well as providingall the

nutrition yourcat or dog needs.

Being proactiveabout mobilityissues

early can delay the need for painkillers,

but eventually most pets require

medication to keep them pain­free.

Other simplethings to consider: If

you’vehad to put an extra blanket on your

bed, don’t forgetyour pet will mostlikely

need alittle extrawarmth and cushioning

duringthe night,too.

Many arthritic dogs appreciate awarm

coat to wear when out in coldweather.

If youare wondering aboutyour pet’s

joint health thiswinter or you havea

seniorpet, start with ahealth check by

your vet.

They candiscuss withyou asuitable

diet and the possible addition of

supplementsorother medicationstoget

your pet moremobile again.

Other winter health issues

Cats toileting inside

If your cat starts toileting or spraying

indoors, it is cause for concern as theyare

normally very fastidiousabouttheir toilet

habits.

The occasional one­off accident may

happenifacat is unwell or is suddenly

frightened or stressed by aparticular

event,but if toileting aroundthe home

persists, the causeshouldbeinvestigated.

Punishment won’t work.Itserves only to

make the cat fearful and stressed,and will

quite likely makethe problem worse.

Something hasgone wrong in its

environmentorwith its health.

It mayneed some pain relief, or at

worst,have aurinary tract blockage. This

is an emergency requiringurgent

veterinary intention. Do not delay takingit

to the vet as ablocked cat rapidly goes into

renal failure.

Lock your rubbish bins

With pets keepingwarm indoors alittle

more this time of year, you need to be

wary of keeping your rubbishbins locked.

Surgery to removeforeign material from

the intestinal systems of dogs can increase

duringthe winter. Amongthe offending

objects oftenremoved are corn cobs and

walnuts.

Antifreeze

Be very carefulwith antifreeze this

winter. Unfortunately, boththe smell and

taste of anti­freezeare generally appealing

to pets.

Many cars have some component of antifreezeintheir

radiators and animals may

stop to lick or drink this sweet­tasting

liquid from aleak or apuddle of

inadequately disposed­of fluid. The

harmful ingredient in antifreeze is

ethyleneglycol, an extremely toxic

chemical. Even the smallest amountofthis

liquid can be fatal to acat or dog.

Symptoms of antifreeze poisoning

include adrunken appearance —

staggering, lackofco­ordination, and

apparent disorientation.Vomiting, and

even seizures, can occur.

Take your poisoned animaltothe vet as

fast as possible.

Rat bait

Rat bait is verypoisonous. Modernrat

poisons aremuch more toxic to dogs than

the old warfarin­based chemicalpoisons.

The amount required to poisonyourdog

is small and the amount of antidote

required to treat it is much higher.

Cats are lesslikely to be poisoned

because theyare fussy eaters and

generallydon'teat dead or sick mice or

rats. However, it can still happen, and they

can certainly be poisoned from eating bait.

What to do

If you know your dog has eaten rat bait

get to the vet as soon as possible.Ifitwas

recently ingested,drugscan be given to

make your dog vomit it up, and ablood test

72 hours later can show if the dog has

absorbed any poisonornot.

If clotting has not beenaffected, no

further treatmentisneeded.

However, if absorption has occurred,the

clotting timesare prolonged, or if your dog

is already bleeding because of the poison,

treatment with Vitamin K1 (by injection

and then orally) will be started right away

and continued for three weeks.

Severely affected dogs and cats

sometimes require alife­saving blood

transfusionand hospitalcare.

Optimising gut health

key to healthy calves

With the exclusion of antibiotics in many

markets worldwide, the need for

probiotic ingredients is increasing.

There are many blends and probiotic

mixtures available for animal

inoculation.

The term “probiotic” is often used to

describe products that contain live

lactic acid bacteria.

Some products are sold

as powder blends, and are

mixed with water by the

end­user before use.

Pastes are another form

of application that are

fully prepared, ready­touse

orally between the

teeth and the cheek, which

for some is preferred and

more convenient.

What is needed is a

proven natural gut

conditioner to help

develop the young calf

until they are fully

adapted to solid feed.

The digestive system of a

newborn animal is essentially sterile,

but it quickly gets invaded by billions of

bacteria, both friendly and harmful,

from the environment in which it is

being reared.

These bacteria are taken in via food

and water consumed and by licking

surroundings in the rearing shed or feed

and water troughs in the paddock.

If the harmful bacteria win the battle

for dominance in the gut, scouring

results –with all its associated hassles.

If the ‘‘good guys’’ win, then the result

Matt Cassineri

is usually ahealthy calf that digests its

milk well, thrives and performs well.

Under ideal circumstances, astable

population of good, healthy bacteria

develops in the first 7­10 days.

The intestinal bacteria have amajor

influence on the nutrition and health of

the calf.

All­Lac TM from Alltech Inc. contains

billions of the ‘‘good

guys’’, so when it is given

to acalf early in life, that

calf is getting early

reinforcements for the

challenges ahead.

It comes in a

convenient paste that is

easy to squirt into the

calf’s mouth using a

specially designed paste

gun.

This can also be used

after calving, in times of

stress such as after

injury, transportation,

serious infections,

following antibiotic use,

or to stimulate appetite and well­being.

Any calf management programme

should concentrate on optimising gut

health, establishing the right rumen

microbes, and minimising diseaserobbing

challenges.

management programme, give Alltech

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Bolt cutters or agas cutter were

used to enter the Scargill Cricket

Club’s storage shedand steala

Burglars also raided thenearby

bowlingclub’s shed and stole a

ride­onlawnmower, before

turning theirattention to the golf

club.

The golf clubbuilding has

security, with the burglars opting

insteadtostealfirewood stacked

on the nearby pologrounds.

The theft of the $2500 mower

and the bowlingmachine, valued

at around $4000 to $5000, from the

cricket club tookplace at the end

of June or early in July.

Groundsman AngusGibb says,

fortunately, the club stillhas a

hand mower left to mow the pitch

and the council mows the domain.

He says the exact timing of the

burglary is not known because not

many of the team visited the

Scargill Domaininthe winter

months.

It appears thethieves entered

the domain through the gateon

the farside before driving to the

By DAVID HILL

Graeme Pilehelps farmers to use the “less

is more”principlewhen applying

fertiliser.

Fertigation is applying fertiliser

through irrigation. It has been usedinthe

United States since the 1960s.

Mr Pilehas beenworking with

fertigation for 10 years.Hedesigns and

builds fertigationunits, which are

attachedtoirrigators.

Farmers who adopted fertigation

applied smalleramounts of urea on their

paddocksdaily or weekly,insteadof

monthly applications.Theyendedup

savingmoney over the yearwhilegetting

betterutilisation.

“It’s used alot in horticulture andin

orchardsbecause fertigation is an ideal

way to feed the plants with nutrients as

they need it,” he says. “It is aboutusing the

‘little and often' approach.

‘‘We’re focusing on the nitrogen, but it’s

all aboutgrowing grass.

‘‘It needs aconstantsupplyofnutrients

and by applying it every day those

nutrients are betterutilised, so over the

seasonyou actually end up applying less.”

The industrynorm in dairyingwas to

apply 30kg of ureainone application each

month,but the fertigation approach was to

FERTILISER &AGRICULTURALLIMESPREADING& LIMESPREADING

1483547

apply 1kg aday. It did not need to be

appliedonrainy days.

Whenthere was alarge amount of urea

appliedinone hit,there was ahigh risk of

it being washed awayifthere was aheavy

rainfall,MrPile said.

“It means the soil biology can better

utilise the nitrates, so the grass growing

under fertigation has less nitrogenwhich

means the amountofnitrogeninthe cows’

urine is less, so there’s lessleaching over

the winter.”

Mr Pile’sCanterbury­based company,

Fertigation Systems, is 12 months into a

Ministry of Primary Industries’

Sustainable FarmingFund project in

partnership withLincolnUniversityand

IrrigationNZ.

The project, led by Lincoln University

masters student Tommy Ley, compares

grass growth in replicated trials where

solid urea and liquidurea are applied

either monthlyorweekly.

“What we find is the farmers who use

fertigation, the level of nitrogen they need

to applyreduceseach yearbecausethey

are producing moreclover.”

Fertigation SystemsisNew Zealand’s

onlyfertigation company and has

fertigation units on 41 farmsacross the

South Island, including Pamu’s (formerly

Landcorp) irrigated dairy farms in North

Canterbury.

Around half of the farmerswere in

dairying, about one­quartereach in arable

or sheep and beef, and acouplewere deer

farmers.

The fertigation system gives farmers

morecontrol, Mr Pile says.

Pamuhas been abletoreduce its

application of nitrogen by 34 percent over

two years of usingthe fertigationunit,

which saves $189 per hectare in urea and

$56 per hectare in spreadingcosts, he says.

“Oneofthe major benefitsoffertigation

is thatyou can changethe amount of

fertiliseryou applydepending on climatic

conditionsand potential grass growth.”

behind us, we’re the little

Clover can address

farm nitrogen issues

White clover will become an important

environmental mitigationtool forfarmers

as they respond to new governmentimposed

nitrogen caps, predicts seed

company Germinal New Zealand.

General manager SarahGard says white

clover, anaturalnitrogen fixer, is alow

cost and practicalresource for farmers

which can reduce thecost and environmentalimpact

of artificial fertiliser.

‘‘We expect white clover

will playanincreasingly

important roleinNew

Zealand’s pastoral system

as farmers seek to comply

with the current regulatory

landscape,’’she says.

By July2021,all pastoral

farmers are required to

reducetheirsynthetic

nitrogen fertiliser use to

come within acap of 190kg

per hectare, per year.The

new policyispart of the

government’s recently

released Actionfor Healthy

Waterways package. Dairy

farmers will also need to

reportannuallytoregional councils

details of the weight of nitrogen they

applied per hectare.

The government estimates 2000 dairy

farmers, the majorityinCanterburyand

Southland,will need to reduce fertiliser

use in the next year to stayunder thecap.

However, industry experts have

challenged this figure, claimingupto35

percentofdairy farmsinthe country might

be impacted.

Sarah sayswhite clover has been

overlooked by farmersinfavour of high

ryegrass levels to increasedry matter.

Sarah Gard

‘‘A combination of lightersowingrates

for clover, increased use of nitrogen

fertiliser, andsoil nutrient deficiency,

means the majority of New Zealand farms

haveaclover percentagewell below the

optimum levelof30%,’’ says Sarah, who

alsomanages two North Canterburydairy

farms with her husband, Will.

Arecentcost analysis by Germinal

suggests New Zealandfarmers can

economicallyreducetheir

synthetic nitrogen use by

switching to ahigh clover

sowing rate.

Honey offers asweet career for siblings

By SHELLEY TOPP

Growing up on an organic sheep and

cropping farm in Mid Canterbury, James

Malcolm had afascination for the honey

bees in hives on the property.

Now, James and his sister, Laura, own

Foothills Honey, with 4500 honey­bee

hives to manage, including acustombuilt

display hive in the Fools of Desire

Cafe in Rangiora.

They employ 15 permanent and seven

casual staff throughout the season, with

‘‘We work with farmers across Te

Waipounamu –some as far as the West

Coast and some as close as next door,’’

Laura says.

For James, it was ‘‘love at first sight,

the curiosity of the inner workings of the

social structure within abeehive’’,

which got him hooked on working with

honey bees, beginning with 10 hives as a

teenager.

Laura, as his younger sister, wanted to

be involved in everything James was

doing, so when James offered Laura a

job ‘‘for the summer to get his office

systems in order’’ she was quick to

accept.

‘‘I’m still here annoying him five years

later,’’ she says.

The business began in 2009, trading as

Natural New Zealand Honey Ltd and

exporting bulk honey all over the world

to different honey traders under various

brands.

‘‘Most honey brands are marketing

companies, buying honey off

beekeepers and selling under their own

label,’’ Laura says.

‘‘We have full traceability. James,

alongside his crew of beekeepers,

harvested that honey, which is an

awesome story and one we want to

share.’’

The siblings both own lifestyle

properties on Foothills Road in Okuku

and decided to buy the Foothills Honey

business because the Foothills story

gelled with them and their connection to

Foothills Road.

‘‘We knew we could put our

personalities into the business and have

abit of fun.’’

Project backs workshops

By DAVID HILL

The Post Quake Farming Project is back

in actionwith aseries of eventstohelp

farmers become more resilient.

Aftermoving to online and multi­media

initiatives underlockdown, the project

has come out of hibernation to offer

business coachingworkshops and an

agri­tourism session in the coming weeks,

project manager Michael Bennettsays.

‘‘We are surfacing after the Covid­19

disruption.Stuff didcarry on, justnot the

fielddays and events and it wasn’t high

profile.Wehave pivoted to do more with

othermedia including video, podcasts

and shows on Compass FM.’’

The first post­lockdown events are

workshops for ruralwomen and farming

couples led by Waiau­based business

coachMarinaShearer,beginningnext

week.Anagri­tourism workshopwill be

held at Kekerengu on August 4.

All are fullyfundedbythe project.

The workshops for rural womenwere a

long time coming, Mr Bennett says.

While the workshops focused on rural

women have received agood response,

Mrs Shearer says thereare vacancies for

the farming couples workshops.

The couples workshopswill use Disc

psychometricassessments to help

understand eachindividual’sstrengths,

motivators, talents and stressors and will

providetoolstohelp couples

communicate better,she says.

The agri­tourism workshop will be

facilitated by Quality Tourism

Eyes of Saracens firmly on asemi-finals spot

By LINDSAY KERR and

PETER WILLIAMS

RUGBY

Saracenskept asemi­finalberth

wellinits sights after asolid

25­10 victory over Hurunui in the

latest round of North Canterbury

rugby lastSaturday.

Saracens’ first­half effort was

out of the top drawer as theside

raced to a17­0lead after35

minutes. Its forwards and backs

combined effectively, with

loosiesBrett Hancoxand Willie

Kerrgaining control at the

breakdowntoset up attacking

platforms.

Livewire winger Nikora Jarvis

scored the first try whenhe

danced aroundhis opponents.

Skipper Josh Maynard scoredthe

second, while RickyAllin kicked

the goals.

Hurunui attacked in the

closing moments of the half and

could be considered unluckynot

to have scored. Its half was also

not helpedbyasecondserious

injury in as manyweeks. Jonno

Schwass was stretchered offwith

aruptured kneeligament.

Hurunui played with more

purpose in the secondhalf,

scoring two unanswered tries

before Saracens completed its

day withaclassysolo try down

the left flank by substitute winger

Grant Broderson.

In addition to Hancox and

Kerr, halfbackOllie Ashby was a

standout performerfor Saracens

and RickyAllin’skickingwas

decisive.

No. 8Willie Jameson and lock

WillPorritt stood out in the

Hurunui pack.

Scoreboard:Saracens 25

(Nikora Jarvis, Josh Maynard,

Grant Broderson, tries; Ricky

Allin, 2conversions and 2

penalties),Hurunui 10 (Willie

Jamesonand Tom Crean tries).

Classy performance

Though Glenmark­Cheviot had

been unbeaten going into the topof­the­table

clash with Kaiapoi at

Omihi last Saturday, its form in

this season’s Luisetti Seeds

competitionhad been far from

convincing.

Aseries of narrow wins had

preceded the previous week’s

shock drawagainst alowly

rankedOhoka side.

Butthey made no race of it

against Kaiapoi, turning on a

masterclassofhow to playwetweather

rugby and running out

thedeserved winnersby27­0.

Thematch was refereed by

Canterbury’s top whistle­blower,

James Munro.

Acommitted forward pack

dominated the battle for

possession,especially at lineout

time, and the skilled inside back

combination of Jordy Grayand

Brook Retallick directed play

expertlyand kept thelocalteam

on attackfor virtually the whole

match.

Consequently,most penalties

concededbyKaiapoi endedup

with ashot at goal, and the

unerringboot of Retallick

converted them into points.

He endedwith apersonalhaul

goals and aconversion.

Although it is arguably unfair

to single out individuals in what

was certainly aconcerted effort

by the Glenmark­Cheviot

forwards,Angus Foster,Jacob

Vincent and Ben Anderson all

playedblinders. The backs also

took their opportunities, with

Mike Keane and Corrigan

Harnett each finishing off wellconstructed

tries.

Another feature was the

performanceoflocalCheviot lad

Matthew Cooper at centre.He

rose to the occasioninwhat was

his first starting role for the team.

Kaiapoi, on the other hand,

simplynever fired ashot.

While the heavy,slippery

conditions certainly neversuited

Kaiapoi’s preferred styleofplay,

the sideatno stagelooked like

The match started withamist

lying low over the eastern hills

and by the end of thematch it had

completely engulfed the ground,

matchingthe sombre spirit in the

Kaiapoi dressing shed, in direct

contrasttothe mood of local

supporters in the packed

clubrooms.They were joyfully

celebratingthe retention of their

beloved Deans Shield.

HOCKEY

Overcast and drizzly

conditions didn’t deter

Rangiora Hockey Club’s Mini

Sticks and Kiwi Sticks teams

in their first competition

games of the 2020 season.

Many in theseteams were

playing their first game of

hockey, but it didn’t show as

they all contributed to their

teams’ results.

Adele Ferguson, Ruby

Hutchison and Aimme

Dunlop all scored in their

first games for the Rangiora

Rabbits Mini Sticks team.

But goal-scorer of the week

was Kaylee McDonald, who

netted five of the Platinum A

Women's six goals in the

side’s win over Harewood.

With Division 2and 3

women playing their first

games after grading, scores

were much closer than in

some previous weeks.

The Division 2women

claimed anarrowwin over

HSOB/Burnside, while the

Division 3women narrowly

lost to the Hornby Pumas.

The Division 3men played

one of their best games of the

season in asolid win over

Harewood, while both Mid

Week men’s and women’s

teams settled for draws.

Meanwhile, Rangiora’s

Division 1women's team

continues to struggle for

competition points, losing its

forth game in arow by the

slimmest margin.

Ashley was perhaps unlucky not to

An exciting opportunity for you, or someone you know?

Urgently require Casual Instructors

Waipara Adventure Centre welcomes hundreds of school

children each year for camps, as part oftheir education outside

of the classroom. To achieve this we train instructors each

year in all activities and duties including high ropes, abseiling,

and rock climbing. Historically these young people have come

from overseas on exchange as part ofagap year programme.

However with our borders largely closed we are having to find

anew normal.

We are seeking energetic young people (17-22 years old), who

are looking for an adventure. Experience in the outdoors is not

essential, as you will be trained in all the skills you need. Youwill

be guided in your development as an instructor to the competency

levels expected by today’s Adventure Industry. Youneed not be

looking for acareer in the industry. Perhaps, you are looking for

work? An opportunity to do something different until Uni or a

course starts? maybe you have flexible schooling or are all done?

Or even looking for adventures here in New Zealand, while you

wait to be able to travel again?

If you are interested, we would love to hear from you.

We need to be ready for the term holidays in October and will be

working both Term 42020and Term 12021. There is likely to be

other work over during December and January also. Youmust be

available for the first training weekend 31 July to 2August 2020,

with further training follow.

For all enquiries email manager@waiparaadventure.nz or call

William 027 334 6881.

As aChristian Camp, Waipara Adventure Centre serves many

parts of the community and instructors are likely to be asked to

also work weekends and during the summer school holidays to

invest their skills into these groups as well. Given the nature of

the work, contracts will be structured as parttime/on demand.
