MICK.JENSEN

@ashburtoncourier.co.nz

The man who helped set up

systemsand run the very

popularEA NetworksCentre

sinceits opening five yearsago

is on the move.

Centre managerSteve

Prescott hasworked in the

aquatic centre environment

since1979and is relocating

back to his old stomping ground

of Dunedin.

The 65­year­old will do some

consultancywork and swim

coaching, but willbescaling

down his working day.

Mr Prescott said the primary

time with her and we wanttobe

closer tofriends and family.’’

He said his EA Networks

Centrerole,whichincluded

managing astaff of 100, had

community asset and

something the districtshould

in avery good position and with

exciting expansion plansa

future possibility.’’

The plans included

addingadedicated learn to

swim pool and big playarea,

and alsoexpanding thesports

hall to include twomore courts.

Both projects were included

in the council’s Long Term

pools didn’t pay for themselves,

but he firmly believed they

should be made affordable for

all sectionsofthe community.

The $35m pool and stadium

facility built by theAshburton

District Council has just

celebrated five years.

Mr Prescottwas recruited as

council’s sports facility

manager in June 2014.

Grain store ruling under appeal

RedmondRetail is appealing a

decisionbythe Environment Court

preventing demolitionofthe old

Peter Cates’ grain store on West

Street.

Redmonds had applied for the

buildingtoberemoved fromthe

AshburtonDistrict Council’s heritage

list, so it could then be demolished.

The applicationwas opposed by

Heritage NZ and othersupporters of

the historicbuilding, and the court

ruleditshould stayonthe list.

Theappeal will nowbeheardby

the High CourtinChristchurch, with

afirst call on August 10.

Redmonds bought the building in

2015 but it is earthquake proneand

they say the costofbringingitupto

codeisabout $2.6 million.

Theoldest part of the building was

constructed in September1878 while

the ground floor was convertedto

office spacein1965.

Historic Places Mid Canterbury

chairperson Julie Luxton said

buildingsdid not have to be grandor

beautiful to be worthyofheritage

retention.

Shesaid people should ask what

importantstoriesthey told or how

theywere constructed.

‘‘Today, no other building in our

townspeaks more about the grain

industryour county wasbuilt on than

Cates’ grain store. And the 1880s

laminated beams and use of timberin

the building’s interior are someofthe

last remaining examplesofthis type

of construction.

‘‘Uniqueand interestingplaces

MrsLuxtonsaid people should

people by replicating‘‘theold feel’’of

In Mid Canterbury, therewere

Let hot ashes

cool before

binning them

Mid Canterbury residents using

their log fires to keepthe

winter chills at bayare being

reminded to let their hot ashes

cool properlybefore binning

them, as they canignite and

start afire.

Hot ashes havebeen the

culprit in six wheelie bin fires

in the district alreadythis

winter,and Ashburton District

Council service delivery

manager Neil McCann says it's

critical that residents are only

putting cold ashes in the

rubbishbin.

‘‘If the ashes haven't had

adequatetime to cool, theycan

smoulderinyour wheelie bin

and cause afire.

‘‘Even if the ashes havebeen

cooling for acoupleofdays,

theycan still havehot coals or

embers that are just warm

enoughtolight up the other

rubbish in your bin.

‘‘If yourbin catches alight,

the fire could also spread to

yourhouse.

‘‘Please make sure the ashes

have properly cooled before

theygointhe bin.’’

Hot ashes arebest stored in a

metalash container or metal

bucket to coolfor several days

before being bagged and placed

in the red rubbish bin.

Pouring water on theash can

alsohelptoput out any

smouldering coal and embers.

Council to address

Line Road safety

The Ashburton District

Council has plans to take out a

kink on Line Road, near the

Lauriston township, to make it

safer.

Councillors visited the siteof

the proposedrealignmenton

their recent tour of the district.

It has been the scene of at

least one fatalaccident.

Line Road currently kinks to

the north as it approaches

Lauriston and then kicks back

but the safety work will change

the road’s alignment and make

it straight. The roadwill also

be lowered.

Council servicedelivery

manager Neil McCann saidthe

work was only in the draft

design stageatthe moment so

costswere not known.

‘‘Thework is to address

safety as there have been

several crashes at the

location.’’

School bus rules

and signed speed

Well, we have afollow up on

the school bus “lore”.

Acurly question came in

to me and Ijust did not see

the answer coming.

The question: “If Iam

driving in apassing bay and

approaching aschool bus

which is stoppedoff the

lanes on either side of the

road with its 20 sign lit, do I

need to slow to 20kph to pass

it?”

The answer is yes,all four

lanes must slowto20km/ to

keep our young people safe.

This is confirmed by Mark

Cooke,Pearsons Ashburton

Manager.

Think whatyou like, I

believe in safety first. Now,

what couldthe finebefor

exceeding 20km/h?Well, if the

same rulesapply as exceeding

the speed limit at road works,

then 40kphover the limitof

20km/h, that is any speedabove

60km/honany of the four lanes

could loosenyour hold on your

licence!

Imet abiker at Taste Café

who was on his way to the Bert

Munro and he confirmed he

lost his licence, travelling over

40km/h above the signed

speed, at road works south of

Ashburton.

The police officer at the

roadworks let him ridedown to

the BertMunro,but he had no

licence to return north.

Now, the knowledgeable

person with the curly question

did indeed slowto20km/hand

earned the ire of atruckie

following them. Horn blast!

This brings me to hazard

lights. Where is your switch in

your vehicle? Can you, in a

splitsecond press the hazard

button to warn vehicles

following you of some change

ahead?

More on hazard lights soon!

Care with Parking Outside College

When DroppingOffand Collecting Students

We understand vehiclemovements as parents and caregivers

drop-offand collect students at College.

Mayweplease ask though forcarewhen this is happening –

• Road safety is hugely important, and especially where there are alot

road users in asmall area.

• Please avoid parking on the yellow lines outside the Walnut Avenue

entrance.

• Please respectresidents’properties –avoid parking over drivewaysor

driving into their personal driveentrances.

• Remain aware thatthe College drivewayisnot suitable fordropping/

picking-up students from. This adds to congestion and compromises

safety.

We do ask,please,thatyou –

• Consider whereyou park.

• Park in alegal parking space, and have your child walk to whereyou are

parked.

• Park in the parallel parks across the road from the College.

• Or -theremay be spaceinthe shingled parking area on the west side of

the College.

We thank youfor your help,

andfor your courtesy to residents,

College students androad users.

RYDA(RotaryYouth Driver Awareness) –

Road Safety Day

This is acompulsoryattendance eventfor all Year 12 Students

Monday03August-Hotel Ashburton

Supported by the AshburtonDistrictCouncil

Road Safety Education and Regional Partners have

subsidised these workshops forschools.

Students aretomaketheir ownway to the venue,

with bus students to walk from the College to the venue.

Studentsmust arrive by 9:15am, forregistration.

Theday will finish at approximately 2:00pm-2:30pm.

Students arereleased afterthattime and arefreetogohome.

Bus students aretowalk back to College.

Programme:

This Road Safety Education Workshop Day isdesigned for 16-17 year old

students, asthey are learning to drive orare passengers in cars driven by

their peers.

Theday’s programme challenges students to change howthey think about

road safety and to lay the foundation for safe road use throughout their

lives. The programme aims to increase an understanding of road safety,

including risk factors,and to equip them with the tools required to choose

behaviours which lead to saferoutcomes on New Zealand roads.

Statistics:

Data shows that male drivers in the15-19 year age group areapproximately

eight times more likely tocrash than male drivers in the lowest risk age

group (55-59 years); and female drivers aged 15-19 years approximately six

timesmorelikely to crash thanfemale drivers in the lowest risk group(45-49

year olds). For every fatality there are approximately another ten people

seriously injured. The implications of such outcomes aresignificant.

Appreciation

Lion Foundation –The Trust Ashburton

Averygratefulappreciation is given to the LionFoundation/The Trust

Appreciation

Digital Mixing Console

First up on the tour wasavisit to theCollege Holyoake Auditorium, upstairs

in the lighting and sound area, to view the new Digital Mixing Console.

Theformer twelve-plus year-old sound system had well-reached its ‘use by’

status,and waslimited in its capabilities.

Thepurchase of the new Digital Mixing Console has manybenefits,providing

a modern operating system for users, giving technical crew students

the opportunity todevelop their skills on more updated equipment and

offering audiences higher qualityproductions.

Deputy Principal, and experienced manager of lighting and sound and

of the tech crew, Ron Cresswell said that the acquisition of the upgraded

console is afuture-proofing outcome looking ten-fifteen years into the

future, which includes the abilitytotransfer it into the new AshColl build.

Funding from this source, in the previous two years, has supported

improved lighting and new upholstering for the seating, making life much

more comfortable foraudiences.

TheCollege Auditorium is used by both the College and wider community

groups for avariety ofpurposes, making this funding of real benefit to the

district.

TV Monitors Supporting ClassroomTeaching and Learning Options

TheCollege has invested over $100,000 in computers forstudentuse in the

last twoyears,and afurther $35,000 worthofcomputers has been ordered

forinstallation over the coming Christmas holidayperiod. These items have

been purchased in preferencetoupdating in-class monitors.

Currently there are data projectors in most classrooms and these are

gradually being replaced with Smart TVmonitors, which provide more

flexible usage options for teachers and students. Six screens and stands

purchased this time brings

the College’s classroom

technology upgrade total

to around twelve across a

range of classrooms.

Year 13 Leadership Camp

The College’s annual Year 13 Leadership Camp provides development

opportunities forour aspiring College and futurecommunityleaders.

Funding supported costs of the January 2020 camp, where the College

trialled the use of an external training organisation, Horizons Unlimited, a

firmwhich specialises in facilitating youth leadership courses.

Sports Uniforms

This year the Boys’Rugby1st XV have anew uniformplaying strip,onshow

as they play inthe Crusaders’regional secondary schools’competition, the

UC Championship.

College operates anannual rotational replacement programme for our

sports teams’uniforms and this year wasthe turnofthe Boys’Rugby.

NewMini Van

Having asmall fleet ofCollege mini-vans on-site makes the provision of

student transport for numerous activities across the board, much easier.

Even with afleetoffive vans now, use is such thatCollege still,attimes, has

to look at rental options to caterfully forour needs at peak times.

Curriculum activities include travel for outdoor education; ‘on farm’

agricultural training courses for our Agriculture and Horticulture

programmes; Drama and Music Theatre trips and similar. Our curriculum

includes field trips to Mt Cook (Geography), Kaikoura (Geography) and

Akaroa (History), amongst other visits to local businesses and events.

Weekly within the relevantseasons,our sports teams travel to Christchurch

(Hockey, Netball and Basketball), Timaru (Girls’Rugby, Football, Basketball)

and other destinations to participate in sports competitions. The vehicles

also support our Rowing teams who regularly travel to Lake Ruataniwha

for regattas, aswell as Golf and Tennis squads, Cricket and Rugby teams

participating in Canterbury- wide activities.

Additionally teams travel forChess Competitions (Christchurch and Timaru)

and Cultural activities including Debating (Christchurch), Kapa Haka, The

Big Sing,Rockquest and various music activities.

At College we encourage our students to be involved in activities but

naturally our location oftenrequires travel to eitherprovide competition or

attend organised events.The minivans are avital component ofour ability

to transport students to

these events, and we are

hugely appreciativeofthe

funding supportreceived.

Pre-Season Game Success Continues forAshHutt Girls’ 1st XV RugbyTeam

TheAshHutt Girls’1st XV playedtheir final pre-season game on Wednesday

01 July,against the Geraldine High School team.

Coach Vaughan Ward said thatthe away game to Geraldine provided some

challenges with team numbers due to sickness and work commitments,

and with the team thereforefielding just seventeen players.

The team did travel with twenty players, including one injured team

member and two players without age dispensation. It was important to

notethatfor twoofthe seventeen starting players this wastheir first game

of rugby.

Unfortunately Geraldine was also short onplayers, and unable to field a

full team of fifteen players, sothe match started with both teams fielding

thirteen players.

GraceBleach and Roi Makutu were named as Co-Captains.

Thefoothills weather provided the team with some cool,calm and dry(ish)

conditions, under lights on Field 2atthe Geraldine Rugby Club. Although

there was alack of player numbers on the field, this is reported ashaving

no real impactonthe game.

AshHutt started well, dominating possession early. Grace Bleach,

Megan Hurley and Madison Trusler-Clark again worked well as a

loose forward trio, providing exceptional go-forward ball and leadership

within their on-field roles. Distribution was controlled well from

#9 Caitlin Roberts in the first half, and newcomer Tokoono Pori in the

second, with the decision-making role of #10 again left toLauren Taylor

forthe game’s entirety.

Tries to AshHutt were scored in quick succession in the first half,with a35-0

scoreathalf time.AshHutt players were then loaned to Geraldine to cover

injuries, and both AshHutt players, Chloe Guthrie and Rangi Makutu,

were applauded fortheir gamesmanship.

To be expected, Geraldine came out firing and wasthe first to scoreinthe

second half.Unfortunately however, thiswas all thatGeraldinecouldoffer

to the second half score. Successivetries came to AshHutt, albeit with some

resistancefromaninspired Geraldine side.

Tough Outings Continue forBoys’ 1st XV Rugby MidCanterburyCombinedTeam

Manager Nikki Woods reported onthe team’s home game on Saturday

04 July against astrong Christ’s College team, in Round 3ofthe UC

Championship.

Nikki said the team had agreat first-half effort, showing real courage,for a

half-time scoreof28-5toChrist’s College. Fitness levels let the team down

in the second half, with more mistakes creeping into the Mid Canterbury

team’s playfor afinal outcome of 54-5 to the opposition.

Big crowd, high prices at dog sale

TONI.WILLIAMS

@ashburtoncourier.co.nz

Valued farm tools of the canine

variety wentunder thehammer

in Mid Canterburylast week and

peoplefrom around the country

came to buy.

The top selling dog, atwo­year

heading bitch named Spring,

fetched $13,200.

She was touted as ahardrunning,

well­mannered

mainstay who workedreally

well under good command.

She also had experience with

sheep and cattle.

Spring was one of 38 dogs up

for saleinthe 64th PGG

Wrightson annual sheep and

cattle dogsale at the Mayfield

A&P Showgrounds.

The dogs, of varying ages and

stages, all got to show their stuff

to potential owners in atwominute

dummy sheep trial.

Among those out to buy were

NorthIsland farm manager

StruanCurrieand Grace Pettit,

of Kumeroa, near Palmerston

North.

The couple had driven down

to Mayfield especially for the

sale following the death of their

mainstay heading dogSparkie.

The six­year­old, who they

had owned since he was two,

had died the week earlier dueto

an injury. He wasone of afew

dogs used on the farm to move

stock around, butmost were

mature in age.

They were looking for one or

twofarm dogs to take home.

The couple are on a700

hectare sheep and beef farm

running 3000 ewes and around

150breeding cows.

One of their buys was Ted, a

four­year­old huntaway,who

took their attention as he wasa

younger version of their beardie

dogGus,aged 11.

Ted was touted as apowerful

huntaway in need of an

experienced stockman owner.

Also on site was North Otago

dogtrainer Stuart Barnes with

his children Eva, 11 and Max, 8,

and the Innesfamily, of Levels

Valley, near Timaru, who had

‘‘come over for alook’’.

The Barnes trio were

checking over dogs of interest

prior to the auction as Stuart

was on the lookout forany deals

to be had buying agood dog.

Mayfield dairy farm manager

Innes brothers Matthew, 8, and Tom, 6, of Levels Valley, get up

close to Rangi, asix month huntaway male.

Mayfield's Andrew McLeod and Warwick Bell, of Methven, enjoy a

day out at the annual sheep and cattle dog sale.

Andrew McLeod wasalso at the

sale. He had10huntaways and

an old heading dogonfarm, but

was on the lookoutfor ayounger

dog.

Mr McLeod, who manages a

1400 dairy cow herd, had

particular interest in three dogs

in the sale, acouple of twoyear

olds and athree year old but

noted there had been alot of

interest in the sale.

‘‘The price mightput me off,’’

he said.

On averagethe dogs soldfor

$4200; while thetop selling dog

went for $13,200,the next top

heading dog went for $9000 and

the top huntaway sold for $8500.

AuctioneerGreg Cook saidit

was aseller’s market with some

‘‘verygoodprices’’ with buyers

from Southland to North Island.

The sale drew abig crowd and

saw arecord number of

registered buyers.

The good dogs werereally

sought after, he said.

Just one young pup was not

sold.

separate the potatoes,using

conveyorbelts operated from

computer systems in the

machine’s cab.

It’s been abit of alearning

curve, says Doug,but an

exciting one. The potato

equipment is imported by

agricultural machinery

specialists Landpower; some

has beendisassembled to fit

into shipping containers so the

Agserve crew putitback

together like amechanoset.

Themachines range in price

from several hundred

thousand dollarsto$1million.

Theharvesters begin working

in January, for earlycrops,

with the main potatoharvest

beginninginMarch.

Inthe past 10 years,

technology has taken the

harvestjob from alabourintensiveprocess

to one where

machinesdiggingsix rows at a

time can runfrom 4am until

midnightwithout stopping.

‘‘The electronics and

hydraulics areamazing,’’ Doug

said. ‘‘Somehave twoorthree

computerworkingdifferent

functions. Drivers don’t just

drive,they have to knowabout

computers as well as diagnose

if anything goes wrong.’’

Asuper harvester called

Spudnik working on aMid

Canterbury farm was able to

harvest1000 tonnes of

potatoes aday.The potatoes

are sent to McCainsorTalley’s

forprocessing; McCains

supplies McDonald’s.

Landpower’s Nigel Prattley

saidhis company valued the

expertise at Agserve.

He said the relationship

worked well because Agserve

hadengineering expertise to

set up and repair the imported

machines, meaning less

downtime for farmers and

others in the potato processing

chain.

This walk is arecommendation from the Mayfield

Ladies Walking Group, whose members are active

year­round in the foothills.

One of the great family day walks from Lake Camp

is to the Balmacaan Saddle and back.

The track begins at the east end of Lake Camp.

Follow the track to start with to Lake Emma. Cross

the Balmacaan River.

The track then splits with track to Balmacaan

follows an old 4WD track up the river. The track is

agentle climb to the bottom of the saddle. It takes

about two hours to get to the base of the saddle.

From the base of the saddle it's a30­minute steep

climb through rocks and matagouri to the top.

There isn't avery good track to the top, so you

need to pick your way to the saddle carefully.

But it is worth the effort where you get great views

of the Rangitata River and Ashburton catchment.

This track is suitable for all ages, though some

may find the saddle quite steep.

The track could be done all year round though you

may have snow to contend with in the winter

months.

If you are staying in abach at Lake Clearwater

this is agood track to fill in aday.

To get there, travel to Mt Somers and continue on

road to Lake Camp. Turn left at the start of the lake

and follow track to southeast corner where there is

an area for parking and signs pointing to Lake

Emma.

Mt Somers is agreat place to stop for an ice cream

after your hike.
