Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon

has voiced his disappointment

over alack of communication over

the felling of 500 trees near the

Ashley River.

Whileheacceptsthe reasoning

behind theirremoval in the

Ashley RakahuriRegional Park

near Cones Rd, Mr Gordon has

contacted Environment

Canterbury (ECan) to raise his

concerns.

‘‘It is ECan’s responsibility,but I

am disappointed that theywent

aheadwithout communication

with our Greenspaceteamorthe

Rangiora­AshleyCommunity

Board.

‘‘We normally havevery good

communication with ECan,but I

am disappointed about this

incident.

‘‘We can’t changewhat has

happenedwith the trees, but what

Ican and will do is discussthis

with the chair and acting chief

executive of ECantoseek an

assurance that, as acouncil and

community, we are betterkept in

the loop on future projects.’’

Mr Gordon saidhebecame

awareofitonly afteramemberof

the public alerted him to asocial

mediapost.

ECan saidthe trees were felled

because of floodingrisks, with

many of the trees in poorhealth.

Localresident Diane Grant has

added her voice to the chorus of

disapproval over the loss of the

trees.

‘‘That area was such abeautiful,

peaceful place to go to and walk,

and sit in the shade in summer.

‘‘I felt devastated when I

realised what theyhad done and

the trees stood no chance.’’

She saysshe does not accept

ECan’s reasons.

‘‘Onetiny risk is reduced(and

this is debatable)versusadaily joy

to residents.’’

Apartments arenow available.

revamp

budget

By DAVID HILL

Arecent engineering report has forced a

rethinkofthe budgetfor the Rangiora

service centre’srefurbishment.

Councillorsvoted last weektoadd

$1 million to the budgetafter an

engineeringreport foundparts of the

building were at just 40 percent of the

new building standard.This brings the

project budget to $2.5m.

The Waimakariri District Council

planstostrengthen the building to 67% of

code,aswell as upgrade the heating and

ventilation systems and make the

building more user­friendly for staff and

the public.

In areport presented to lastweek’s

council meeting, staff saidthe structural

review foundthe useof663 reinforcing

mesh in concrete diaphragms meantthat

the seismic performance of thewestern

firstfloor of the building is at 40% of

code,while the chambers were also 40%

because of the roofring beam.

The council originally approved a

$4.6mbudget for acomplete

redevelopmentofthe buildingbefore

extending it to $6.75m last yearascosts

begantoescalate.

By the end of last year, projected costs

were approaching $10m, before

councillors decided to rein in the

project, MayorDan Gordonsaid.

‘‘At that point we decided it was time to

go back and re­look at it because it was

getting beyond the realms of an

affordablesolution.

‘‘Andthen Covid­19 hit, so we decided

to focus on whatneeded to be done now

and defer further plans for afull

redevelopment. It’sbeenalong time

sinceit’s been properly lookedatand we

need to create abetter working

environmentfor our staff.’’

Mr Gordon saysthe council will seekto

give preference to localtradespeople

wherepossible.

‘‘It’s really important to us that locals

are given theopportunity to price and

undertake the work.’’

Meanwhile,the fullcouncil and

committee meetings are being heldatthe

Rangiora Town Halland other council

venues,including the Kaiapoi Civic

Centre and OxfordTown Hall.

Cash offered under water reforms

By ROBYN BRISTOW

NorthCanterbury councilsare

bracingfor what could be one

of the biggest re­organisations

of local government since the

1986 amalgamations.

By this time next year,

councils’ three waters

departments —drinking water,

wastewater and stormwater —

couldbetaken over by aCrown

waterauthority.

The authority is part of the

Government’s water reform

regulations.

They followaGovernment

review into water,

commissionedaftera

gastroenteritis outbreak in

Havelock North in 2016.

In recent weeks the

governmentpromised millions

of dollarsacross the country as

stimulus to get the reforms

moving, along with the

economy.

The Waimakariri District

Council is in line for $4.01

million,Hurunui $3.75mand

Kaikoura$940,000, as an

incentive to sign up to a

memorandum of understanding

as the first partofthe

reforms.

It is believed the

Government is looking at

boundaries for local water

authorities similar to those

usedbySuper Rugby

franchises.

But the three North Canterburycouncils

feel the governmentismovingwith

indecent

haste to launchthe reforms,

withthe deadline to opt into

signing the memorandum at

the end of thismonth.

The second lot of funding

willbelate nextyear, when the

Crown entity could take over

the water functionsofcouncils,

including theirassets.

Councilscan opt into the

secondround, but say aspecial

community consultation has to

happen before decisions are

made. Theywant moredetail

about the affectonratepayers’

pockets,and whethercouncils

willbecompensated for the

lossofalarge part of their

business.

Waimakariri MayorDan

Gordon saysthe process is

rushed and is happening

without communityinput.

‘‘We are workingtoa

government timetable. What’s

the rush?’’

He would like more time,

and acollaborative approach.

‘‘Over thenext 12 months

there willbeanin­depth

examination of themerits of

different service delivery

options from the statusquo

through to an asset­owning

model that the Government is

signallingitprefers.

‘‘That review is being

undertakenataregional level,

led by the Canterbury Mayoral

Forum,and will extend to the

West Coastand possibly the top

of the south if theywish to

participate.’’ Mr Gordonsays

there willbeaneed for

extensive community

engagement on options and

preferencesover the nextyear.

‘‘There are arangeof

possibleoutcomes, fromno

changetosignificant changes,

and it’stoo early to tell what

the outcome willbe.’’

There are questions, he says.

For example,ifthe council

takes the money in the first

roundofreforms,would it have

to pay it back if it did not opt

into the second tranche?

‘‘If we do end up in one body,

and our supplies are all joined

together, what will happento

all the assets?Isthere abuyout

of theseschemes?’’

Hurunui MayorMarie Black

says the governmenthas talked

aboutthe reforms since

Havelock North.

‘‘Nowall of asudden we get

into arushed process, with the

lure of money. Ithink that is

wrongbecause it is such an

important process from a

community prospective.

‘‘At the moment it seems

somewhatdisingenuous.’’

Mrs Black says the nextstep

in the reforms has to involve

community consultation.

‘‘I think it would be unwise

for it not to happen.’’

KaikouraDistrict Council

chiefexecutive Angela

Oosthuizensays the council

will be considering the

Government’s offer and

whether to sign up to the

memorandum in the coming

weeks.

Alternate Route Advised -

Skew Bridge Repairs

Residents who cross Skew Bridge near

Silverstream are advised to use an alternate

route from Monday 17August.

The bridge will remain open to traffic, however itwill be one-lane

only with temporary two-way traffic lights in place.

This will cause delays, so using the alternative route is advised if you can.

The temporary traffic lights will be in place until repairs to abeam under

the bridge are completed, which will take around four weeks.

Work is mainly needed underneath the bridge, and requires concrete to cure

which takes time. We’ll be working to get the repairs completed as quickly

as possible. Thanks for your patience.

Clearance of woodland

amounts to vandalism

Dear Editor,

To: David Parker, Minister for the

Environment.

As aresidentofRangiora, my wife and

Iwalked on abeautiful walking track

through thewoodland area on the bank

of the Ashley/Rakahuri River three or

four times every week.

We took our grandchildren through

this woodland each weekend and they

played and learnedabout nature. The

walking track,along with acycle track

and fitness stations, were the best in

Rangiora.There were hundreds of

poplars and the bird life was great, with

our favourite being the black fantails.

On our return from atrip up northwe

were shocked to read in the North

Canterbury News that the trees had been

felled. We immediately drove to the

Ashley River bridge and into the car

park. The site was like ascene of

devastationfrom War of the Worlds.The

entire woodlands had been flattened,

with logs piled in severalareas and

large machines turning these great trees

into chips. The walking track,the cycling

tracks and the fitness stations, the

wildlife and birds all gone.The reasons

given by Environment Canterbury for

felling everything just do not add up.

Environment Canterburysays this was

just some routine work, and this forms

part of our wider river management

works. Engineer Shaun McCrackengoes

on to say the tree­felling would improve

the resilience of Rangiora and Kaiapoi

to the threat of floodingfrom the Ashley

River. However, the Ministry for the

Environment reportpublished in 2008

concludedthat flood damage during

New Zealand floods is rarely causedby

floods exceedingdesign protection

levels of stopbanksonrivers. It states

that these risks do not change even

when afforestation is factored in.

My comments are, first, regarding the

500 trees cut down: Most of these trees

were soundand healthy.

Further, our government has been

encouraging the whole countrytoplant

thousandsmore trees to help reduce

greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

The stopbankwas installed in two

stages. Stage one was completed in 2015,

with stage two finishedin2018.

There was never any indication of the

removal of any trees or vegetation.The

last time floodingoccurredonthis river

north of Rangiora was 1952. If any water

did manage to get over the recently built

stopbanks, which is highly unlikely, then

the trees would help to soak up any

excess water.

LETTERS

Now, the result could be boggy land.

The Rangioraresidents have never

been consulted or notifiedregarding

this issue, nor the councilorministry as

far as Iamaware.

The clearing of this once beautiful

woodland,the wildlife and birdlifeis

nothing more than vandalism. Whoever

gave the order for this devastation to

take place without consultation should

be taken before the courts and

prosecutedfor vandalism.

Ieagerly await your reply and to know

what the Government is going to do to

restore Rangiora’s most beautiful

walkway, cycleway, fitness stations,

wildlife and birdlife,and to replace the

trees.

Yours,

Keith BHarris

Highway upgrades

Dear Editor,

Iread with interest about the roading

projects southofKaikoura in the North

CanterburyNews (July 16).

There is rockfallprotection work

being undertaken south of Peketa and

stabilisationworks near the South Bay

Racecourse. However there are other

parts of State Highway 1that require

attention south of Kaikoura,one being

the one­lane bridgeacross the Hurunui

River which is achoke point.

There are the tortuous hairpin bends

just north of the Conway River flats and

the twists and turns that still have to be

endured by motorists in the Hundalees.

Can we still call this astate highway,

let alone SH1? Or is this just aglorified

goat track?

Yours,

John Moody

Cannabis

Dear Editor,

Regarding cannabis, in my day it was

the norm to smoke cigarettes.

Recently, my childrenjoked about

how they used to steal mineand have a

sneaky puff. Sadly, 30 years after Iquit,

they are still smoking. Ijust can’t help

but think that if cannabis becomesthe

norm, this pattern will be repeated.

There is no way Iamvoting yes.

Yours,

Nigel Cook

8 The North Canterbury News, August 13, 2020

Station takes atechnological leap

By DAVID HILL

Compass FM has been hauled into

the modern era.

The North Canterbury

community radiostation’s main

studio deskhas had acomplete

overhaulofits computer systems

and refurbishment, station

manager Kerry Treymane says.

‘‘Welcome to the 21st century,

Compass FM,’’ he says.

‘‘Thecapability of this studio

has grownimmensely. We can now

do everything that ametropolitan

station can do and possibly more.’’

Compass FM was broadcast

from the back­up production

studio fromWednesday last week,

whileKerryrediscovered his

former painting tradebefore

kitting out the mainstudio with

new technologywith help from

localITexpert DavidBuckley.

‘‘David gaveuphis time to help

set it all up and (former manager)

Mike (Le Petit)and Iwere hereall

weekend,’’ Kerrysays.

‘‘We finished at 4.15pm on

Sunday and the first songfrom the

new desk was Real Wild Child by

Iggy Pop.’’

The first problem happened 20

minutes later, Kerry admits.

Despite the small hiccup on

Sunday afternoon, Kerry was back

on air at 6am on Mondaymorning,

driving his new studio desk.

The refurbishment has cost

$21,000 so far. It was made

possible thanks to the support of

The Southern Trust, MainPower

and McAlpine’sMitre 10 Mega.

Announcers now havefive

computerscreens,four keyboards

and four micetonegotiate, but the

technology allowsthem to do so

much more, he says.

‘‘Cosmetically, it’s not quite

finished yet,but it will make it alot

easierfor all the staffand there

will be more room for everything.

Everyone’spretty excited.’’

In timethey will be ableto

operate the five computers witha

singlemouseand keyboard, while

the phone systemwill soonbe

replaced to makeiteasier to

recordphoneconversations on air.

The technologywill make it

easiertobroadcast live from

sportsand community events, as

well as improvingthe overall

broadcast quality, Kerry says.

‘‘WhenIfirst came here,within

aweek Iworked out we had abit of

aproblemwith the olddesk it used

to feedout of.

‘‘If you drovedown the road the

music would come out one

speaker instead of the other,so

this will just sound so much

better.’’

Kerry says plansare afoot for an

open day to show off Compass

FM’s new capabilities.

red stag which weighed 168.5kg.

Tairi Mullen won the heaviest sow

competition with a57.1kg animal,

while the heaviest hind, which

weighed 68.8kg, went to Dan Leen.

Oliver Smith was the winner of the

Rock’n’Wheels marks its birthday

For atreat for dad on Father’s Day, roll

Several hundred vehicles are

expected for the event, which runs from

fun. There will be swap­meet sites, craft

and food stalls, live music,

entertainment, including Peddlemania,

and abouncy castle.

‘‘It’s afun day out in the country for

car enthusiasts and agreat way to treat

dad on Father’s Day,’’ Katrina says.

Cars turning up to Rock’n’Wheels, do

not have to have apedigree.

‘‘If it has wheels and you love it, bring

it along,’’ Katrina says.

Atotal of 104 vehicles turned out to

the first event. It has since grown

substantially, with several hundred car

owners taking the opportunity to give

their vehicles arun to one of the first

events of the car show season.

‘‘A lot of repeat people are coming.’’

Entry is $10 per set of wheels,

including the driver and one passenger.

It will be $5 for all extras in the vehicle.

Swap meet and craft sites are $20

each.

Entry is $5 at the gate for adults, with

those under 15 free.

22 The North Canterbury News, August 13, 2020

Arosy outlook, despite challenges

By DAVID HILL

Kaikoura has plenty to look forward to,

Angela Oosthuizen says.

The Kaikoura District Council chief

executive believes the future is bright for

the tourist town.

‘‘The next 18 months will be tough to get

through, but Ibelieve we will get through

it.’’

There were several opportunities

thanks to central government and

commercial investment, including the

$9.88 million Wakatu Quay

redevelopment, the new swimming pool

and the Sudima Hotel.

Mrs Oosthuizen says Kaikoura has

received strong support from New

Zealanders visiting the town since the

lockdown.

‘‘We’ve been really fortunate. In the last

wee while we’ve been top in New Zealand

for visitor numbers over the school

holidays and our retail spend has been

up, but Ibelieve it’s going to be important

to see what the next couple of months are

going to hold.’’

Mayor Craig Mackle admits ‘‘doom and

gloom’’ was anticipated when the country

went into lockdown.

‘‘You keep hearing the word

unprecedented and it’s been ahell of a

ride, but an awesome learning

experience along the way.’’

‘‘It’s been atough gig,’’ Mrs Oosthuizen

adds, reflecting on her 4 1 ⁄2 years in charge,

which began with overseeing the

construction of the civic building,

followed by the earthquake and

$39 million rebuild, and now Covid­19.

‘‘We moved in on the Friday, had the

earthquake on the Monday. For the next

three years we were dealing with

response and recovery.

‘‘We’re just finishing off our rebuild

with minimal overruns ...and we’ve now

Leading from the front ... Kaikoura District Council chief executive Angela Oosthuizen says

gone into Covid and we’re dealing with

that quite well.’’

Mrs Oosthuizen says she plans to do a

tour this summer to support other New

Zealand towns and encourages others to

do the same.

‘‘I would encourage the rest of New

Zealand to come and see our unique place

and see what we’ve got to offer.’’

Mr Mackle says he had been visiting

other towns and chatting to locals since

the lockdown.

‘‘I’ve spent abit of time in Nelson. They

probably thought Iwas crazy, just

wandering around and talking to random

people, and alot them said they would

normally be overseas.

‘‘But the general consensus was that

they wished they had looked around New

Zealand before they went away, because

nothing compares to what we have.’’

Visitor numbers remain steady in

Kaikoura despite the ongoing roadworks,

which are leading to significant traffic

delays.

The North Canterbury Transport

Infrastructure Recovery alliance is

scheduled to complete its work in

December, which will have amajor

impact on employment in the district.

Mosaic

planned

mural in Waimakariri.

The china was collected by

Crack’d for Christchurch, achina

mosaics group set up after the

quakes, for use in community

projects. It was donated to North

Canterbury’s NEST Arts Collective

by city artist Jenny Cooper.

NEST instigators Mel Eaton and

Laura Hewetson hope the mural

will be completed by February 22

to mark the 10­year anniversary of

the earthquake.

Potential sites within the district

are being explored and the

collective is keen to get in touch

with mosaic artists or those with

suitable experience to design,

curate and install the mural. Mel

and Laura can be emailed at

several mosaic artworks in

Christchurch, including achair

GET READY FOR SPRING

The North Canterbury News, August 13, 2020

23

It’stime to spring into action

Spring is just around the corner. With it

comes longer days, providing achance

for aspruce­up around the home and

garden.

For farmers, it’s atime to prepare for

the arrival of lambs and calves.

There’s lots to do, but remember: You

don’t have to do it all yourself.

The North Canterbury region has a

host of skilled people who will take a

load off your shoulders, whether it’s in

the garden, maintaining your property

or helping with any livestock issues.

With calves and lambs arriving, aclose

eye needs to be kept on the feed supply.

Supplements may be necessary until

spring growth really kicks in.

Also, aclose eye should be kept on

animals to ensure they are not having

birthing difficulties.

Spring is an excellent time to get rid of

moss around the home, especially on

brick paths and decked areas.

There are several good moss removers

available now and it should be abreeze.

Better still, get aprofessional in to do it

for you.

Spring is agood time to hose down the

house, too. Though it may not look

“dirty”, it is surprising how fresh it will

look after awash. But remember, you

will have to do the windows too.

While doing it, you may notice

paintwork that needs atouch­up, or you

may even decide to paint the whole

house.

Take advice, and call in the

professionals for the big jobs.

Remember, DIY on this scale can take

you out of action for weeks, while all the

other jobs, including the garden and

lawns, mount up.

Glorious yellow ... Milena Marshall

during last year’s Cheviot Spring Festival.

Sure signofspring ... Spring deliverslonger days and the chancetoget out more. It also

provides opportunities to catch up on home maintenance.

PHOTOS: FILE

Fresh, green growth and the first

flowers of the season are areminder

that spring is here. When the sap starts

to rise and plants shift gear into active

growth, they need fuel to keep them

healthy and flourishing.

Now is the time to get out with your

bags of fertiliser and feed all your

plants, especially roses and fruit trees,

which depend on agood feed now to

produce the best quality flowers and

fruit later in the growing season.

Don’t forget about your indoor and

outdoor container plants. Any nutrition

left in the potting mix is sure to have

been bled away by winter rains, so give

them afeed.

It is also time to step up the watering

and, if repotting, guard against the

effects of ahot, dry summer by adding

water crystals or wetting agents to your

pots.

Insect pests will be emerging from

their over­wintering eggs in vast

numbers.

Disease spores are on the move too,

and spread quickly in warm, humid

weather, so get that spray out.

Weeds also love spring growing

conditions, so you will want to be

vigilant with these.

Save your back by spreading mulch

over bare patches of soil once they are

free of weeds.

After the rainy season, the lawn takes

on awonderful green carpet, but spring

is the time to patch up the rough bits, get

rid of ugly weeds, and apply fertiliser to

keep it looking lush and green.

Consider installing irrigation if adry,

brown lawn got you down last summer,

but remember, hosing restrictions could

be in force over the summer.

Group to explore representation

COUNCIL BRIEFS

The Waimakariri District

Council has appointed aworking

party as part of its

representation review.

The working party will

comprise Mayor Dan Gordon,

Deputy Mayor Neville Atkinson,

Crs Niki Mealings and Paul

Williams and arepresentative

from each of the four community

boards.

The council is required to

conduct areview of how local

government representatives are

elected, the system of voting and

ward boundaries every six years.

The review will set procedures

for the 2022 and 2025 local body

elections.

Tree damage

Council greenspace staff were

dismayed to discover significant

damage to trees and vegetation

at Matawai Park in Rangiora last

week.

“The Matawai Park Advisory

Group has worked hard over the

last 40 years, planting awide

range of native trees and plants

to create an urban forest to

reflect what was once growing in

the area,’’ greenspace manager

Grant Macleod says.

Mr Macleod says it appears

trees and vegetation have been

damaged or removed to make

bike tracks and jumps.

Contractors have removed

jumps, fenced off the track and

will be replacing destroyed trees

with seedlings.

River work ... Three additional berths are to be installed on the Kaiapoi River.

Oxford­Ohoka

The Oxford­Ohoka Community

Board approved agrant of $449

at its meeting last week to help

the Oxford Community Night

Patrol.

“These volunteers give up a

considerable amount of their

own time and resourcestohelp

keep our community safe,’’ board

chairman Doug Nicholl says.

‘‘We really appreciate all the

good they do and hope this grant

helps keep them visible and safe

during patrols.”

The group is made up of a

small number of dedicated

volunteers who have been

patrolling Oxford and

surrounding rural areas on

Friday and Saturday nights for

more than two decades.

The board voted to back astaff

recommendation to close a

stockwater race near Siena

Place in Mandeville.

Staff said affected property

owners have been consulted and

it has been determined that, as

most are lifestyle blocks rather

than farms, the race is no longer

required.

Afinal report will be

presented to the utilities and

roading committee meeting,

before going to afull council

meeting on October 6.

Lofty: My Life in Short: AMemoir, by Ian Fulton

Australian voice­over artist Lofty Fulton knows what it’s like to

have the odds stacked against him: Born with achondroplasia,

which is aform of dwarfism, his grandmother thought he

should be locked away from the world. At school, he suffered

years of relentless bullying, believing the lie he would never be

loved or good enough.

With the End in Mind, by Kathryn Mannix

Modern medical technology is allowing us to live longer and

fuller lives. For the most part, that is good news. But with

changes in the way we understand medicine come changes in

the way we understand death. Once a

familiar, peaceful, and gentle —ifsorrowful —transition,

death has come to be something from which we shield our eyes,

as we prefer to fight desperately against it, rather than accept

its inevitability.

The Ginger Child, by Patrick Flanery

Flanery and his husband, Andrew,

embarked upon ‘‘a four­year odyssey’’ to

adopt achild. They would be assessed by

social workers and considered surrogacy.

Eventually, they came to deal with a

potential adoption. The Ginger Child is an

honest book, which means that it isn’t

always easy emotionally.

Glenmark-Cheviot set to defend its title

By LINDSAYKERRand

PETERWILLIAMS

Saturday’sNorth Canterbury

rugbygrand final willbearepeat

of lastyear’s,with defending

champions Glenmark­Cheviot

taking on Kaiapoi.

The combined side accounted

for Oxford 29­11 and Kaiapoi

headed off Saracens 33­18 in last

Saturday’ssemi­finals.

The season’s formsuggests

Glenmark­Cheviot will get the

better of its opponents.

Apartfrom beingheld to a

draw by Ohoka,the side has been

unbeaten, with Oxford also one of

its victims earlierinthe season,

with a45­21 scoreline.

In agame played on apristine

Cheviotground, the two sides

traded penalties in the opening

quarter beforeGlenmark made

its move.Before half­time the

side had scored two converted

triestogain an ascendancy that it

wouldneed in the second half.

The first try came after a

relentless build­up, withCogs

Harnett on handaslast receiver

to score. Fiveminutesfrom the

break, Glenmark again attacked

and, from 10 metresout, loosie

JacobVincent wentthrough two

tacklerstoscore.The consistent

and accurate boot of Brook

Retallick convertedand

Glenmark was out by 20­6.

Retallick put Glenmark further

aheadinthe openingexchanges

of the second half with two

penalties but,asdemonstrated in

RUGBY

many of itspreviousgames,

Oxford played its best rugby in

the second half.Led by the everpresent

Stew Dalzell, Oxford

made its comeback and, with 20

minutes left,propMose Fosita

muscled over to score.

However, Glenmark thwarted

any further Oxfordadvancement

and, with time dwindling,

Retallickput the result beyond

doubtwith adropped goal.

Vincent wasGlenmark’s player

of the day and prop Hayden

O’Donnell put in afull­hearted

eighty­minute effort.

Oxford centre NickInch

looked for work all game and left

­winger Luke Navuwaii was

always dangerous when he spied

agap. Sadly for StewDalzell, who

celebratedhis 250th senior game,

and Moko Prescott who marked

100 games,itwas to be their last

gamesofthe season.

Convincing win

In perfect conditionsat

Kaiapoi, the hometeam earned a

repeat of last season’sgrand final

with aconvincing 33­18 win over

Saracens.

Saracens’Willie Kerr set the

tone for the opening quarter

when he claimed his ownteam’s

kick­off and Saracens parked

itself in Kaiapoi’s territory for

that period. During this spell, in

particular, Saracens was

scrummaging effectively.

Kaiapoi’s defence was

resolute, withDanteLove

leading the way and all Saracens

had to show for this initial

dominancewere two well­taken

penalty goals to Ricky Allin.

Kaiapoi then burst into life,

scoringfine tries to Codey

Grimes and Nacanieli Namata

within three minutes to take a

lead it never surrendered.

In the shadow of half­time,

Saracens closed the score to

11­14when NikoraJarvis made

the most of an overlap.

Kaiapoi made its intentions

obvious immediately after the

break whenthe hard­working

Connor Smithfinished off an

excellent team try.

Taine Jacobs­Lawson, who has

played at No.10 most of the

season,showed he was adapting

welltoamidfield role by scoring

two tries,whichput the game

wellout of reach for Saracens.

Saracens’ soleresponse in the

second half was atry to Grant

fromthe sideline, as wellas

Rangiora Hockey Club’s top teams find

themselves at opposite ends of their

respective tables afterround one of the

Canterbury Hockey competition for 2020.

The Division 1men started the season

slowly, but after astringofwinsinrecent

weeks are wellinthe racefor the top four

spots in atight grade.

In contrast, the first gameofthe season

was the only win for Rangiora’sDivision 1

women.The young team has struggled to

find goals lately, and was sunk last

weekend by the University Huns scoring in

the last 10 seconds of the game.

Now sitting second­to­last,the teamhas

work to do in the second round to resurrect

their season and build somemomentum.

The Rangiora Hurunui Mid Week

women’s team is on the rise. After aslow

start to the season, it haswon four of its last

five games and drawn the other. The side

sits fourthonthe Division2ladder, just a

few points below the teaminsecond.

The Rangiora Allsorts mid week men’s

team has not been so fortunate, slipping to

7th on the table after the side was unable

to repeat the resultinround1intheir local

derby against Hinemoa­Kaiapoi Kauri.

Prolificgoal scorer Kaylee McDonald

continuedher goodform of recent weeks,

scoring fourmore for the Platinum Girls A

team againstHarewood.The first of these

set something of arecord, coming in the

first 20 seconds of the game.

In Platinum grade, bothboys’ and girls’ A

teams had good wins thisweek,while both

Bteams could manage onlydraws.

In othergames this week,Rangiora and

Kaiapoi HighSchools boys’ teams played

each other in an 11­a­side competition for

HOCKEY

the firsttime in manyyears as part of the

SchoolSportCanterburyseries.

Kaiapoi scored two earlygoals to James

Clarkeand JustinMeyer, but sustained

pressure from Rangiora in the second half

paidoff with two goalstoPatrick Green.

Both teams had chances to score a

winnerinthe final minutes, but couldn’t

break the 2­all deadlock.

Recruitment Process Begins for New

Chief Executive

Council Chief Executive Jim Palmer has announced

he is leaving in March 2021, aer serving the

community in this role for 17years.

Mr Palmer reflected on his time at the Council and

shared how hefelt fortunate to be leaving the

Council in astrong position, with acommitted and

skilled team of colleagues and elected members

who will continue to lead the organisation and

continue building our excellent community.

The Council will appoint an external recruiter by

September to help select the new Chief Executive.

Ivory Street Upgrade

Upgrades to Ivory Street are progressing well with

the section between Alfred and Buckham Streets

almost complete.

Contractors will move into the next section

between Alfred Street and Queen Street during the

week of 17 August.

Work will then continue on the west side of Ivory

Street, moving north from Queen Street, before

moving to the east side and working south towards

Countdown. This stage will take about two months

to complete.

Atemporary speed limit of 30km is in place

through the work area. Please take care and we

thank you for your patience while we complete this

upgrade.

Devastating Damage toNative Trees

Our Greenspace staff were dismayed to discover

significant damage to trees and vegetation at

Matawai Park in Rangiora earlier this week.

Matawai Park is protected and classed as aScenic

Reserve under the Reserves Management Act.

This means that damaging or cutting down trees

or any other vegetation isn’t allowed.

It appears that the trees and vegetation have

been damaged or removed tomake bike tracks

and jumps. Contractors have removed the jumps,

fenced off the track and will be replacing destroyed

trees with seedlings.

The Matawai Park Advisory Group have planted

awide range of native trees and plants to create

an urban forest. While the activity in question

is suited to parks, this isn’t the right one and if

people are keen to see more bike tracks please

give the Greenspace Team acall on 0800 965 468.

Earthquake 10th Anniversary

Commemoration Event

As the 10th Anniversary of the first Canterbury

Quake approaches, All Together Kaiapoi (formerly

You MeWeUsKaiapoi) are holding afree festival

to mark the anniversary. While it will be held on

Williams Street in Kaiapoi, the commemoration will

be an event for the whole District. Some of the

attractions proposed include food stalls, live music

and afireworks display.

Chris Greengrass, Community Board Chair says,

“While in some ways the anniversary will be quite

poignant for many of us, it’s also an opportunity to

celebrate our Community’s remarkable resilience

and share the story of our ongoing regeneration.”

The District suffered significant damage as

aresult of the September 2010 Earthquake,

particularly Kaiapoi, The Pines Beach and Kairaki

Areas. Since then the District has undertaken

significant regeneration in affected areas. As

well as completing infrastructure repairs across

Waimakariri, the Council has invested heavily in

Kaiapoi with completion of the $9.5M Kaiapoi

Marine Precinct, rebuild of Williams Street,

construction of the Ruataniwha Kaiapoi Civic

Centre, as well as the recent addition of new

sports fields, BMX track and dog park.

ABOUT

CEMETERIES

We’re planning for how we develop and maintain our cemeteries to

make sure we have enough space set aside for future interments.

Adra Cemetery Strategy has been developed, andwe’re keen to hear your thoughts.

The Strategy broadly outlines the objectives and actions needed to plan for

demand, and manage our cemeteries for the next 20 years.

ACemeteries Policy will guide the day-to-day management of Council cemeteries

including things like memorial headstone selections, how you can decorate plots

and the reservation of ashes or burial plots. We’ll be asking for your feedback on

that later this year aer the Strategy has been confirmed.

Let usknow what you think before 5pm on Monday 31 August.

Find out more at

waimakariri.govt.nz/letstalk

Residents who cross Skew Bridge near

Silverstream are advised to use an

alternate route from Monday 17 August.

The bridge will remain open to traffic, however

it will beone-lane only with temporary two-way

traffic lights in place.

This will cause delays, so using the alternative

route isadvised if you can.

The temporary traffic lights will be in place until

repairs to abeam under the bridge are completed,

which will take around four weeks.

Work is mainly needed underneath the bridge, and

requires concrete tocure which takes time. We’ll

be working toget the repairs completed as quickly

as possible. Thanks for your patience.

“The Key of Knowledge ..“(Luke 11:52)

IS THERE AGOD?

Everyday,the sun rises and we have another day

for our use. Have we ever stopped to consider

why the sun ALWAYS rises and sets during a24

hour period? Is there alaw established in all the

creation, that controls the course of the Earth,

Sun, Moon and Stars? Or is everything running

on chance? We have the ability to reason,which

is an amazing ability. Today is our opportunity to

consider whether nature cries out as evidence of

acreator, anintelligent designer, orweleave it to

chance.
