An interesting turn of events

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The poleman is on amission. Don

Scott,ofNorth Canterbury, is

keen to find out the age of his

huge British­made Newbold

Machine Tool Company lathe.

Don has owned thelathefor 20

years.Hehas usedittoturn

horse jumprails.

When he was maderedundant

from his job afew years back, he

modified it to enable him to

manufacturelarger poles for

building construction.

Now it is aone­pass lathe that

can remove 100mmofwood off a

log up to 5.2m long.

Don has always believed his

lathe was 120 years old. But in

recentweeks awoman who

visited to pickupsome jump rails

said it was mucholder than that.

Don immediately asked how on

Earth she knew.

‘‘It’swritten on that leg,’’she

replied.

To Don’s astonishment,

painted on one of the legswas

1856, and the word‘‘Lyttleton’’.

This meansitisatleast164

years old, and counting.

‘‘I’veowneditfor 20 yearsand

never noticed that at all. Nor has

anyoneelse (in my defence).So,

yes, Iwas gobsmacked.’’

He has visited the

Christchurch libraryonaquest to

discover what ship it mighthave

arrived on,who imported it, and

anything else aboutit.

He has so far comeupemptyhanded.

‘‘I really wouldlove to know

what it wasbrought here to do. I

was told it was to buildlog cabins,

but I’ve neverseen old log cabins

with turned poles or photos

which would suggest thatuse.

‘‘I can’t imagine how it could

have been steam­powered, but I

also can’t thinkofany other way

it was powered.’’

Don uses Douglas fir for his

lathe, which is at least 164 years

jump rails to ensure theyare of

good quality and strength.

‘‘I experimented with pine,but

the firmakes afar superior rail.’’

His rails have since been sold

all over New Zealand. He has had

inquiries from as far away as

Britain.

Don knows exactly what kind

of tree transforms intoaquality

rail.

His pineconstruction poles,

whichare treated after turning,

are also sought after,especially

among builders or homeowners

seeking aneat, uniformproduct.

Council boss to leave in March

By DAVID HILL

Waimakariri District Council chief

executive Jim Palmer is leaving his role

next March, after 17 years.

‘‘I’m fortunate to leave the council in a

strong position, with acommitted and

skilled team of colleagues and council

members who will continue to lead the

organisation and continue building our

excellent community,’’ he said.

The Waimakariri is ahigh­growth

district, which emerged from the

Canterbury earthquakes as one of the

most popular residential destinations in

the region.

Significant growth is forecast to

continue.

The council was recently awarded a

second AA rating under the Local

Government Excellence Programme —

one of two councils out of 33 nationwide

to achieve the honour.

Last year, Standard and Poors

confirmed the council would maintain

its AA/A­1+ credit rating.

‘‘This move is something Ihave been

talking about for awhile now,’’ Mr

Palmer said.

‘‘It will provide afresh start for me and

the council. This has been an exciting

❛Jim is areal leader and well

regarded throughout the

country.❜

—Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon

and highly rewarding position, and I’m

pleased to be handing over such a

capable organisation with agood

outlook.’’

Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon says

Mr Palmer will be missed.

‘‘Jim is areal leader and well regarded

throughout the country.

‘‘Through the earthquakes he

demonstrated exceptional leadership

which helped our district recover and,

following that, supported Kaikoura in

recovering from its own earthquake.

‘‘He is also having asignificant input

into the Covid­19 response and recovery.

‘‘On top of this, he’s outstanding at the

business­as­usual aspects of running a

large organisation.’’

The council will appoint an external

recruiter by September to help select the

new chief executive.

Jim Palmer ... Leaving in March.

Dismayoverloss of river trees

By SHELLEY TOPP

The felling of 500 trees in the

Ashley Rakahuri Regional

Park has left some visitors to

the area shocked and

disappointed.

The trees, which had

surrounded apicturesque

walkway near the West Belt

entrance to the park in

Rangiora, were felled by

Environment Canterbury

(ECan) last week during the

completion of work to protect

Rangiora and Kaiapoi from

the threat of river flooding.

However, park users say

the affected area was a

special part of the park, used

by many to walk, run, cycle,

exercise their dogs, and just

relax. Because of this, the

community should have been

consulted before the decision

was made to remove the

trees.

Alison Clay, aregular

visitor to the park with her

dog, Jafa, says she is

saddened to see the

‘‘beautiful walkway

massacred’’.

‘‘For what? How does it

stop flooding?’’

Cyclist Bernadette

Canavan, who is another

regular park visitor with her

dog, Nugget, was also

disappointed that so many

trees had been felled.

‘‘I felt very saddened when

Isaw the trees. This was my

favourite place to ride my

bike and now all that beauty

has been destroyed.’’

ECan regional lead in river

engineering Shaun

McCracken says the felled

trees were between the

primary and secondary

stopbanks. ‘‘In the event of a

breach of the primary

stopbank, the flood flow is

channelled back into the

river by the secondary bank.

‘‘The problem with trees in

this particular area is that

they slow the water down and

restrict its passage through

this critical zone and back

into the river downstream of

the rail bridge.

‘‘Modelling of flood flows

through this area indicated

that, with the trees in place,

overflows into Rangiora were

likely.

‘‘This is arisk we are

unwilling to accept.’’

However, aMinistry for the

Environment report

published in 2008 concluded

that ‘‘flood damage during

major New Zealand floods is

rarely caused by floods

exceeding design protection

levels on stopbanks on

rivers’’.

‘‘It is more often caused by

unpredictable breaches of a

weak point in astopbank

when the river is below bankfull

stage; or overflow of

backed­up tributaries on to

land behind stopbanks when

the river is close to bank­full;

or spillage across floodways

...’’

It states: ‘‘These risks do

not change even when

afforestation is factored in.’’

School opens in ayear to remember

By DAVID HILL

NorthCanterbury’s newestprimaryschool

took amoment to celebrate on Friday,

afterachallenging first six months.

Te Matauru Primary School was

officially opened last Friday, with

Waimakariri MayorDan Gordon, local MP

Matt Doocey and neighbouring school

principals attending.

In apre­recorded message, Education

Minister Chris Hipkins said it was a

special day as the first new primary school

to open in the region (aside from Pegasus

Bay School) in 52 years.

‘‘This is areally challenging timefor

youngpeople, but it’s even more

challenging whenyour school opened just

six weeks beforethe lockdown.’’

Mr Hipkinssaid having warm,modern

school buildingswas important, ‘‘but what

happens inside those buildingsiseven

more important’’.

Principal Danny Nichollssaid he was

pleased be able to markthe official

opening, after the lockdown threw ‘‘a

really big curveball’’sosoon after the

school opened for pupils in February.

‘‘The challengefor us wasthe same as

for the other schools,but we didn’t have

that background of knowing the families.

But it broughtuscloser together, so we felt

astrong trust from the community.’’

Planning for the new school began in

2014, with the establishment Board of

Trusteesappointed in 2018.

Establishment board chairman Peter

Simpson saidthere weretimes when the

new board ‘‘hadtobestrong,tobebrave

and to have heart’’ duringthe long

planning process.

‘‘To the tamariki (children), it was

excitingtosee you finally walk in on that

first day. No matterwhat you go on to do

from now, know that you madehistory.’’

Mr Simpson thankedNgai Tuahuririfor

the school’s name and narrative, with Te

Matauru meaning ‘‘eyes to the west’’ which

describes the school’s positioning towards

Mt Grey. The school’s narrativeor

whakatauki, Ekea Ka TaumataKiTeUru,

means “look to the peaks of the alps and

ascendtogreat heights”.

New stadium ayear away

Stadium Waimakariri remains on track

to open next year.

With just ayear to go, Waimakariri

Mayor Dan Gordon and councillors

toured the site last week alongside staff

from the North Canterbury Sport and

Recreation Trust, which will manage

the facility.

‘‘It’s great to be able to have this

sneak peek,’’ Mr Gordon said. ‘‘I think

our residents are going to be very

pleased. Our contractors are doing a

great job, progress is on track, and it’s

going to be aterrific asset for our

community.’’

Local sporting clubs have been

eagerly awaiting the new multi­use

facility as the district’s population and

participation numbers swell.

Basketball is one of the district’s

high­participation sports and is

challenged by alack of space.

North Canterbury Basketball

Association chairman Gordon Wong

says the stadium will bring welcome

relief. ‘‘Having the stadium will add

untold benefit to the community, lessen

financial strains for participants and

volunteers, and enable organisations

like ours to have apermanent hub.’’

Trust community engagement

manager Caroline Whittaker is keen to

see some big tournaments in the

bookings schedule.

‘‘We want to see wide use of this

fantastic facility by its residents in all

forms, from fitness centre members, to

interest groups and sporting clubs.

‘‘We’ll be working alongside

organisations to create key events in

the calendar, which will add areal

drawcard to our region.’’

The stadium will provide social

benefits by having awide range of

activities at the venue, she says.

‘‘The combination of on­site staff

from the sports clubs to the fitness gym,

health and wellbeing clinics, our centre

management, and of course the people

from our communities will create a

great buzz within the stadium.’’

Despite asmall delay because of the

Covid­19 lockdown, the stadium is on

track to open in late July 2021.

OPINION

6 The North Canterbury News, August 6, 2020

Challenges lie ahead

Upcoming changes have the potential to

alter the integrity and purpose of local

government.

Historically, the Hurunui District

Council has punched well above its

weight in respect to service delivery.

We pride ourselves on the values that

encompass the wellbeing of local

government.

However, in August, the government

will bring in more exemptions for work

that does not require abuilding consent.

This work includes sleepouts that do not

have any sanitary fixtures or kitchen,

ground­floor verandas up to 30 square

metres, carports up to 40 square metres,

and hay barns up to 110 square metres

provided they are not above ahigh wind

zone.

This provides people with the option

not to apply for aconsent, but it does

mean more stringent requirements that

require engineers or licensed building

practitioners.

My advice is to speak with our friendly

building team to assess your individual

situation to ensure you achieve the best

outcome. The bottom line is the code

must be met regardless of aconsent or

not.

August is also atime when our council

is required to decide on whether to

progress and accept agovernment

“stimulus package” associated with the

proposed Three Waters reform.

Following Havelock North’s water

contamination, as well as over the last

three years, the government has been

considering solutions facing the

regulation and delivery of the three

waters services —that is, drinking

water, waste and storm water.

This has seen the development of new

legislation and the creation of the new

water services regulator, Taumata

Arowai.

Your elected members are keeping

well abreast of the process, with the

decision pending to “opt­in” and sign a

non­binding memorandum of

understanding to receive the first of the

stimulus packages. However, on going to

print, Iamunaware of the financial

grant allocation that we will receive,

which will be allocated to pipe upgrades

and improvement to services.

Early in 2021, we will be working

through aspecial consultation process

to engage with you and consider your

opinion to commit to the second tranche

of this proposal, by August 2021.

Should we continue, we will be

expected to hand over the water delivery

component to aCrown entity.

This is asignificant decision, one that

we will work with you on to achieve, as

the repercussion of this will be the loss

of influence over acritical asset.

During the week Ihad the opportunity

to meet with all of our staff who deliver

water services, with achance for aquick

thank­you. They are always there for

you, so akind word of thanks was

appreciated.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Medicinal cannabis is already allowed under existing law

For some who may vote for the

legalisation of cannabis for the

reason of medication, this is already

legalised.

On reading the pamphlet sent by the

Electoral Commission, Inotice this fact

is written in white print on ayellow

back ground, which could be quite hard

to read for some.

Here is what is written: ‘‘What's not

Seat honours memory of Des

By SHELLEY TOPP

Amemorial seat for the late Des

Moore has been installed at the

Rangiora grounds of the North

Canterbury Riding for the

Disabled Association (RDA).

Des, who died last December,

was an energetic, inspirational

visionary who dreamt of

establishing the North

Canterbury branch of the RDA.

He worked tirelessly to achieve

that goal and became the

association’s founding president

and alife member along the way.

The memorial seat for Des was

unveiled by his widow, Rita, and

their sons and daughters during

afunction held at the

association’s grounds last

Sunday afternoon.

‘‘Des’s life was about service to

others and service above self,’’

Rita said.

‘‘His dream was to have an

RDA in North Canterbury and,

with the help of all you people,

and many hours of hard work, his

dream became real and true.

‘‘This is evident in the facilities

that we can see here today.’’

He died having fulfilled his

dream, leaving the association in

capable hands, so that the riding

programme could continue to

help people with disabilities

experience the enjoyment and

benefits derived from horse

riding.

began with the organisation after

Des put an advertisement in a

local newspaper asking for likeminded

people interested in

establishing alocal RDA. People

were invited to attend ameeting

he had organised.

‘‘The rest is history.’’

Des was determined, she said,

and this is the reason the

association exists today, with its

own beautiful grounds and its

own facilities.

‘‘He was an extraordinary,

selfless giver of himself,

dedicated to enriching the life of

those living with difficulties, and

Rita supported him every step of

the way, becoming our top­notch

secretary.’’

Recycling

Rough mulch is being sold at Amberley and Hanmer

transfer stations, and will be sold at Waiau and Culverden

soon. Great for weed suppression. And a reminder that

bokashi kits are also for sale, which help divert waste from

the landfill.

To encourage recycling of agricultural waste, Agrecovery

recycling drop off points are at the Cheviot, Culverden and

Waiau transfer stations and at Amberley PGG Wrightson.

Through these, triple rinsed and empty polyethylene

(HDPE) plastic agri-chemical containers are accepted for

recycling.

if you haven’t received them give Naomi acall or pop into

the Council (Amberley Office) to do a Special Vote.

Documents need to be in the post by this Friday to ensure

they are received by noon on Friday the 14th If you miss

the postal deadline these can be dropped back to the

Fly linefor Hanmer Springs

A fly line will be an exciting new feature at Conical Hill,

currently in the early stages of planning. It is due to open by

October 2021. HDC will receive $2.1 million from the

Government’s infrastructure funding scheme, ($2m) and

the Provincial Growth Fund, (approximately $100,000.)

The ride will take nine minutes, and create plenty of jobs for

the area with its construction and operation requirements.

Keep supporting ourlocal

foodbanks

It has been really interesting working with the foodbanks

and seeing first hand the great work they dointhe Hurunui.

As acommunity we expect there to be foodbanks and their

cupboards to be full. The reality is that they are sometimes

struggling too because the demand has nearly doubled. We

are constantly looking for community and organisational

support to ensure the service continues. If you can assist in

any way, please contact Roger Hornblow 033148166

"WE'RE REALLY

LOOKING FORWARD

Aword from your

CEO, Hamish Dobbie.

As we head into the tail end of winter it's great to see the

days slowly lengthening. Always agood chance to tap into

new energy and think about what you want to achieve for

the rest ofthe year. Here at HDC we're doing just the same,

and we are looking forward to delivering the 2020-21

Annual Plan and developing the Long Term Plan, 2021-31.

Pandemic effects ... Logging operations have had avolatile year.

PHOTO: SUPPLIED

Effects of Covid-19 felt

The New Zealand forestry sector has

experienced avolatile run this year after

several yearsofrelative stability, says

ForestryManagementGroup director

CraigMcMiken.

He says the forestry industry was

affected by Covid­19 earlier thanother

industries. It began with China’s decision

to extend its annualNew Year holiday by

aweek in January, significantly reducing

demand and price for logs andlumber

destined for the country,MrMcMiken says.

When New Zealand moved to Covid­19

alertlevel3,harvesting and silviculture

operations stopped for five weeks.

‘‘Duringthis lockdown, Chinese

customersbecame concerned about

having enoughsupply,which resulted in

the largestincrease in price we have seen

sincethe 1993 price spike.’’

Whilethe lift was nicetohave, in

hindsight it was an overreaction, Mr

McMiken says. ‘‘Supply from New Zealand

and Europehas come back strong, and the

pricelift was short­lived. Generally

domesticprocessors currentlyhave strong

orders but thereisuncertainty looking

aheadatwhetherreduced demand will

eventuate later in the year.’’

His company is busy planting,and hopes

to plant 4000 hectares thisyear.

‘‘This is acombination of replanting

cutover and also new planting.’’

The EmissionsTrading SchemeReform

Bill passedinJune. The fixed priceoption

will be increased from $25 to $35 per New

Zealand unit (NZU).

Auctioning is scheduled to begin in

March2021,with a$20 floor price.

Mr McMikensays theserevisions

provide more long­termconfidenceinthe

priceofNZUs,whichislikelytosee

continued stronginterest in new planting

for sometime.

Wilding trees airlifted out

Wilding Douglas fir logs are being given a

whirlwind trip out of Arthurs Pass.

The trees are above Bruce Stream, in

the Bealey area, on public land

administered by the Department of

Conservation.

They are being cut down and flown out

by aRangiora­based helicopter firm.

The Ministry for Primary Industries has

contracted Southern Heli Lift, owned by

Darren and Lynda Davison, for the work.

Forest Management (FML), which is

part of the Forest Management Group

(FMG), carried out the harvesting

consultation, management marketing and

cartage of the logs.

The trees were planted by the NZ

Forest Service in the mid­1960s for

erosion control. However, they have gone

on to cause wilding tree spread.

In its winter newsletter, FMG says there

is no road access into where the Douglas

firs were causing problems, and because

of the environmentally sensitive nature of

the area, road construction was not an

option.

The operation consists of manual tree

felling, trimming and cutting logs to

specific length to optimise the maximum

lift weight. The logs are then lifted, flown

down and dropped on to the riverbed,

avoiding power lines as logs are not

allowed to be lifted over them.

Logs are then carried down the dry

stream bed, crossing the stream over a

driftdeck (temporary bridge) and

dropped over aflood bank.

Here they are cut to millable length and

loaded on trucks for delivery to

customers.

The newsletter says the positive

outcome is that more than 90% of the logs

are sold to, and processed by, Canterbury

Sawmills, not to mention the revenue to

offset the cost of eradicating wilding

exotic trees in the high country.

New forests must

meet local rules

Planting trees can have

positive benefitsifthey are

in the right environment.

Environment Canterbury

(ECan) advises

landowners to contact

theirlocal councilorthe

regional council before

planting,tomake sure the

land and plants are

suitable for plantingand to

ensurecompliance with

district and regional plans.

All new forestry planting

plans need to meet

legislativerequirements of

the Resource Management

Act 1991 (RMA), as well as

complying with regional

and district rules, ECan

says.

This includesplanting

under the Ministryfor

Primary Industries’ (MPI)

One Billion Trees

programme.

‘‘A successful One

Billion Trees funding

application does not

automatically mean the

planting under regional

and district rules can

commence straightaway,’’

ECan says. ‘‘The local and

regional council will be in

touch to inform them of the

application outcome and

any other relevant

guidance.’’

Approvalisneeded

before planting forestry

trees on land where there

is no existing plantation

forestry,harvesting has not

occurred within the last

five years, and does not

include vegetation

clearance from the land

before planting.

‘‘It is essential to ensure

any planting carried out in

Canterbury meets

legislative requirements so

the negative impact on the

environment from planting

is minimaltonone.’’

Negative effects can

include soil slip erosion,

and landscapeand

amenity effects such as

shading or modification of

natural features. There is

also the potential for

wilding conifers to spread

into vulnerableareas,

which can have adverse

effects on the landscape.

‘‘When establishing a

new plantation forest,

consideration of its

location and design is

needed to avoid long­term

environmental, safety and

operational issues,such as

the ability to safely harvest

the crop with limited

effects on neighbouring

properties,’’ ECansays.

Any breach of local and

regional afforestation

rules can result in

enforcement action.

Irrigation body to move

By DAVID HILL

Irrigation New Zealand is settomove its

forces arethink of its operations.

Existing chief executive Elizabeth Soal

will remaininthe roleuntilafter the

election, beforebecoming regional policy

and planning manager to work with

members andlocal authorities to offer

advocacy in the regions.

“As anation we are embarkingonthe

recoveryphase of Covid­19 and the

dependability of irrigated production

systems willbecentral to this,’’

chairwoman KeriJohnston says.

“Yet, the general misunderstanding of

the benefitsand positive impacts of

irrigationpersist.’’

Irrigationhas avaluable role to playin

ensuring NewZealand has an

environmentally and economically

sustainable future,MsJohnston says.

“Irrigationisacritical component of a

vibrantand environmentally sustainable

agriculturaland horticultural economy,

andwewill workhard towardsensuring

that irrigation remains an integral part of

ahealthyand thriving Aotearoa New

Zealand.’’

Students to fill summer roles

Lincoln University studentsare set to

plug the gaps in the rural contracting

labour pool this summer.

With the rural sector strugglingtofill

vacancies because of alack of migrant

workers, the university is relaxing its

rules around compulsory practical work

requirements to include contracting.

Agribusiness lecturer Dan Smith says

large numbers of British and Irish

workers traveltoNew Zealandeach

summer, but their expected absence

over Covid­19 could leave big gaps.

“Given the current global pandemic it

is unlikely these workers will have the

freedomto come here, which will place

alot of pressure on these businesses,

and this was puttingpressure on

contractors to fill their needs.”

Contractorwork could include hay

balingand silage­making, as well as

spraying, muck spreading, shearing,

ploughing and other tractorwork.

“Allowing the students to count rural

contractingwork towards their practical

work requirement, we hope, will

alleviate some of the pressure on these

contractors.’’

Focus on regenerative farming

By DAVID HILL

Kaikoura’s first regenerative farming

event has been aroaringsuccess. More

than 90 farmers,vintners and industry

professionals across the South Island

attended the event in Kaikouralast month.

It was sponsored by the North

Canterbury Rural Support Trust, the

Organic Dairyand Pastoral Groupand the

Kaikoura PlainsRecovery Project.

Event organiser Sky Horton, who has

created the Agregenz online platform, was

astonishedbyhow much interest there

was in regenerative farming.

‘‘It quickly turned into an event with

more than 90 farmers interested,’’she

says.

“My ‘ah­ha’ momentwas while standing

in apaddockthat was being sprayed with

insecticide, having to run out of the

paddock so the chemicalsdidn’tharm us.

‘‘It just felt so wrong thatwewere

growing foodinanecosystem thatwewere

poisoning.’’

Sky started to investigateoptions for

farming without chemicals, which led her

to regenerative farming.

Glenmark-Cheviot in sublime form

RUGBY

By LINDSAY KERR and

DAYLE SUTHERLAND

Following a90­7 drubbing of

Woodend last Saturday,

Glenmark­Cheviot hurdled

over Kaiapoi to finish in the

top spotinthe NorthCanterbury

seniorrugbycompetition.

Glenmark led 45­7 at halftime

and carried the momentum

intothe second half.

Woodend earnedrespect for

its effort andscored atry in the

opening exchanges, but the

classofacompleteGlenmark

unit in attackmode was too

much for the plucky home side.

The visitors posted 14 tries,

with JacobVincent scoring

three, and Ben Murray and

Cogs Harnett scoring two.

Alex Robsontook over

kicking duties from Brook

Retallick,converting10tries.

Points galore

Saracens grabbed third spot

afterapulsating 12­trymatch

against closest rivalOxford,

winning 53­40.

Played in front of abumper

crowdatOxford, Saracens

started the scoring in the 5th

minute when left winger Ollie

Bithray beatoff two defenders

to score the first of his three

tries. Onlymomentslater

RickyAllin kickedapenalty

and Saracens led 12­0.

Oxford finally got its hands

on the ball and by the

20­minute mark had scored

two tries; the first,tocentre

Luke Navuwaii who used his

strength and pace to march

through the defence on the

rightflank. In the 12 minutes

before half­time,Saracens

stormed back,scoring four

more triesthroughthe backs

for a33­12 lead.

Oxford scored aconverted

try in the opening minutes of

the second half before Bithray

collected his secondtry and

superboot Allinadded a

penalty to takeSaracens to a

seeminglymatch­winning

advantage of 46­19.

However, Oxford was not

finished and in 10 minutes the

side scored three converted

triestotrail by only six points

with five minutes remaining.

Moving forward ... Matt Freeman on the roll for Saracens in its match against Oxford.

But Saracens had the final say

whenfront rower Pete Manahe

crashedover to score.

Scoreboard: Saracens53

(Ollie Bithray 3, Jesse Bowring,

Nikora Jarvis, PeteManahe

tries. Ricky Allin try, 6

conversions and 2penalties),

Oxford 40 (Luke Navuwaii 2,

Stu Feary,Mosese Fosita,

LiamStevenson, Moko

Prescott tries;AngusMitchell 5

conversions).

Lastweek,itwas reported

thatSaracens injured player

MarkSmith scored two

pushovertries in the side’s

gameagainstGlenmark. This

was not correct. The scorer was

Willie Kerr.

Kaiapoi wins

Kaiapoi did enough to

thwart atypical grittyHurunui

side, winning 25­18. In doing so

it finished on top of the leader

board with Glenmark­Cheviot,

but dropped to second in the

standingswith the combined

sideemergingwith abetter

points differential.

Hurunui had asolidfirst half

and went to the break with an

11­10 advantage. The two

teams then scored atry apiece

and,with five minutestoplay,

werelocked at 18­all.

Rob Samsonfinally broke

the deadlock, scoring for

Kaiapoi before Hurunui

stormed backinthe final

moments but came up short.

Scoreboard: Kaiapoi 25

(JacobHurring 2, Dante Love,

Rob Samson tries; Lance

Tayloraconversion and

penalty), Hurunui 18 (Sam

Boyne,SandfordHeard tries.

Matt Hickey aconversion and 2

penalties.)

Honours for Ashley

In amatch fittingfor afinal,

Ohoka and Ashleybattled it out

at Mandeville. WhileOhoka

had alate opportunity,Ashley

claimed linehonours.

Ashleyprovided the early

impetus and moved the ball

wide early. Followinga

penalty, the side was rewarded

with an earlytry in the corner

to theimpressive Ben Dunbar.

However,Ohokawasn’t to be

outdone and the sidewas soon

on the board with aconverted

try to MaxLines.

Ashley wasn’t to be undone,

either, and soon the pattern

emerged with both sides

seeking ascendancy.

Luke and Josh Duckmanton

for Ashley carriedstrongly, but

it was Ohoka thatstruckagain

with atry to Sam England.

Again, Ashleyresponded with

awell­workedtry to catch

Ohokaout wide with atry to

Anthony Tavendale.

Patrick McCallum, for

Ohoka, directed play from

pivotand, with apenaltyinhis

pocket, Ohoka led17­12 at halftime.The

secondhalf was no

different, with stoicdefence

from Ashley’s NaariaWilson­

PHOTO: LEONIE HANCOX

Bairds and Andrew

Olorenshaw, as well as Ohoka’s

industrious Tom Taylor.

It was Ohokathat faltered

first, withaplayer senttothe

sin bin. Ashleypounced, and a

further try to Dunbar gave the

northerners the upper hand.

WhilstOhokacameback

withaMcCallum penalty, it

was Ashley that struckagain

withatry to Scott Barber.

WithOhoka back to 15

players, Blain O’Loughlin

continued to test the Ashley

defence and it was awell

worked try to Jack Wedlake

thatput the homecrowd on the

edgeoftheir seats, with Ohoka

takingthe lead 27­26 with 7

minutes left. However, likea

goodnorwester, Ashleydidn’t

let up and were soon awarded

apenalty, which Korbyn Gray

put over for a29­27lead.

Despite alate Ohoka penalty

attempt, that is how the score

would stay.

Ben Dunbar was aworthy

recipient of Ashley’s Player of

the Day award, with the Ohoka

equivalent goingtoBlain

O’Loughlin.

Alternate Route Advised During

Skew Bridge Repairs

Residents who cross Skew Bridge, near

Silverstream ontheir commute between the

Waimakariri District and Christchurch, are

advised to use an alternative route from

Monday 17 August.

Engineers doing amaintenance assessment

recently identified there are some repairs required

to abeam under the bridge. Signage will be up

along the route in the next week giving regular

drivers of the road advanced warning.

While the bridge will remain open to traffic it will

be one-lane only with temporary two-way traffic

lights in place. This will cause delays –sousing the

alternative route is advised ifyou can.

The temporary traffic lights will be in place until

the work is completed, which will take around

four weeks.

Work is mainly needed underneath the bridge,

and requires concrete to cure which takes time.

Motorists might not see much happening while

driving over the bridge, but we assure residents

that we are working to get the repairs completed

as quickly as possible.

Vandals Wreck Victoria Park Toilets

Victoria Park visitors were incredibly disappointed

this week to discover the toilets have been

significantly vandalised.

This is the second incident ofthe and vandalism

to Waimakariri District Parks in the last two weeks

–afavourite playground item was last week stolen

from Gladstone Park in Woodend/Pegasus.

It is believed that the Victoria Park damage

happened onWednesday 30 July with fixtures and

fittings removed orsmashed up and bespoke vinyl

ripped from the walls.

There’s been an

importantchange…

Chris Brown, Manager, Community and Recreation

says, “These facilities in avery popular park were

recently refurbished to an excellent standard and

are highly used by the public. It’s amindless act

of vandalism that could cost thousands of dollars

to repair.”

The Council takes incidents like this very seriously

and will be following up with the authorities.

We ask that members of the public are vigilant

when using our parks and facilities and if they see

any suspicious behaviour or witness any incidents

they report these to Council through our Snap

Staff have seen it all in the

Waimakariri District Council’s

yellow recycling bins.

Everything from dog droppings

to batteries, light bulbs, old

clothing, small electrical items,

plant pots, egg cartons, lids and

soft plastics end up in the yellow

bin, creating extra work for staff

at the Southbrook Resource

Recovery Park.

Staff will be conducting yellow

bin audits soon over concerns

that residents have got into bad

habits since the lockdown.

Waste Management operations

manager Russell Gillies says

most people follow good habits.

‘‘What frustrates us the most is

the people who just don’t care or

take the effort. Ninety­eight

percent of people are really

good; it’s the 2% that just don’t

care and don’t think about what

happens to their rubbish.’’

The council’s solid waste

officer, Monese Ball, encourages

people who want to do the right

thing, but are unsure, to bring

their items to the resource

recovery park.
