Stats show

district’s

resilience

Dressed for adventure

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Waimakariri is weathering the

Covid storm better than the wider

Canterbury region and the country

as awhole, according to the latest

Infometrics Quarterly Economic

Monitor.

The report covers the year to

June 30 and shows asmaller drop

in gross domestic product (­1.2%)

and tourism spending (­1.7%) in

the Waimakariri district, than in

the rest of the Canterbury region

and New Zealand overall.

The district also experienced an

increase in consumer

spending, up 1.5%,

compared with a4%

fall in Canterbury and

a2.8% decline across

New Zealand.

Commercial

consents are up 58% in

the district compared

with significant

decreases elsewhere.

Like elsewhere in

the country, jobseeker

support recipients

rose sharply, by 26%, but the

unemployment rate is actually

lower than it was in June 2019,

sitting at 3%.

Enterprise North Canterbury

business support manager Miles

Dalton says it is important to

understand the jobseeker and

unemployment figures to get an

accurate picture.

Miles Dalton

❛Waimakariri as adistrict

is likely to get through

this with alot less

disruptionthan other

districts.❜

—Miles Dalton

“Jobseeker support recipients

and the unemployment rate are

two separate measures,” he says.

“A 26.1% increase in jobseeker

support recipients

looks like ahuge

number, but we are

coming from avery

low base.

‘‘Unemployment is

still 3% in

Waimakariri, down

from 3.1% ayear ago.

‘‘In statistical terms

anything below 4% is

considered full

employment.”

Stephanie Reeves,

who owns Red Eight Cafe in

Kaiapoi, says that despite the

changes and uncertainty over the

last few months, business has

remained steady.

“We have been blown away by

the incredible community support

we have received throughout

Covid,’’ she said.

Committee’srole scrutinised

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The role of the Hurunui Waiau Zone

committee is under the spotlight.Its

functions and purposewill be discussed at

an special meeting of the Hurunui District

Council today (Thursday).

Hurunui MayorMarie Blacksays

disbanding the zonecommittee is not on

the table at the meeting. However, the

committee’s termsofreference and future

purpose willbediscussed.

In aletter to Environment Canterbury

chairwoman Jenny Hughey, Mrs Black

said the committee had playedapivotal

role in water management, including the

Canterbury WaterManagement Strategy.

The council’sview was the committee

couldhave an ongoingrole in CWMS

governance,but it was not envisaged it

wouldreplaceortry to managecommunity

initiatives. Rather,itwould support

existing initiatives and identifyfurther

opportunities, issues or barriers to enable

the community to meet CWMS targets.

The meeting follows apresentationby

Rural Advocacy Network (RAN)

spokesman Jamie McFadden at last

week’scouncilmeeting,during which he

said relationships between ECan and the

Hurunuicommunity wereatan‘‘all­time

low’’, with awidespread lossoftrust.

He saidbecause of ECan’sbehaviour,

the zone committee, and other zone

committees, were viewed by many as a

mechanism forECan to achieve its agenda

‘‘underthe guise of collaboration’’.

‘‘The ability of the zonecommittee to

constructively engage with the Hurunui

community has been compromised by its

association withECan to the point it is no

longer able to operate as an effective

committee,’’ he said.

Areport commissioned by the zone

committee, ajoint committeeofECan and

the Hurunuicouncil, aboutits future,

identifies arange of challenges.

The HenleyHutchingsreport says the

committee is wellawareofthem.

The committeehad prepared draft

termsofreference and askedECan and

the Hurunuicounciltocommissiona

review of its mandate, method of

operation, achievements and thefuture

challengesitwouldface.

The reportsays historic tensions

between Hurunui and ECan councillors

abouthow information was distributed to

zone landowners, braided riverbedissues,

courtactions led by Forest &Bird, and the

subsequentwithdrawal of Fish &Game

from committee deliberationshad led to

relationship issues. There weremore

challenges ahead with discussion

documentsand policy statements,

indicating its task would notget any easier.

Magic of kitchen science

Southbrook School children enjoyed a

little ‘‘kitchen chemistry’’ last week.

Agroup of pupils got to try some

science experiments during the

school’s science day on Friday.

The experiments were led by

teacher Katie Owens, who used to

teach secondary school science. She

sought to inspire pupils and get ‘‘their

science minds working’’.

Pupils tried their hand at ‘‘milk

magic’’, using food colouring and

detergent to separate fat in milk,

making sherbet and ‘‘unicorn

noodles’’, using the pigment in red

cabbage to change the colour of

noodles in boiling water.

Younger pupils got to make

‘‘exploding volcanoes’’ using lemons,

baking soda and vinegar.

‘‘It’s really simple things which they

can go home and do, and show mum

and dad,’’ Katie says.

‘‘Sometimes you don’t get alot of

feedback from them, but when you see

it in their faces, you know that they’re

engaged.’’

The school is aiming to hold the

science days once aterm, with

different pupils getting aturn.

Council accepts $8m

for water upgrades

By DAVID HILL

The Waimakariri District Council has

agreed to work withcentral government to

find three waters solutions.

Councillorsvoted to enter intoa

memorandum of understanding (MOU)

with the government at aspecial council

meeting last week.Itwill get up to $8.02

million in funding as part of the

government’s $761m Covid­19 recovery

programme for newwater projects for

drinkingwaterand storm water.

‘‘We haveagreed to the enter into an

MOU, whichisthe first part of the reform

programme, but we willreserveour

decision on further parts of the

programme,’’Mayor Dan Gordonsays.

‘‘Butwecertainly have agreed to receive

the funding and to consider options for

watersupplies, but there’salot of water to

flow under the bridge.’’

The council’sdecision is in line withthe

recommendation fromthe Canterbury

Mayoral Forum, which is seekinga

regional solution for three waters.

Adeliveryplan needs to be supplied and

will be monitoredbyCrown Infrastructure

Partners, with work to begin by March next

year and completedbyMarch 2022.

The funding cannot be spent on existing

projects, Mr Gordon says.‘‘TheMOU notes

that delivered projects needtosupport

economic recoverythroughjob creation

and maintain, increase or accelerate

investment in water infrastructure.’’

While he welcomed the extra funding,

Mr Gordon says he is concerned the

proposed reformswill take control over

three waters awayfrom localcouncils

following the Havelock North drinking

water supply contaminationin2016.

‘‘I understand that the government did

need to respond in thatenvironment,but

they havenow put in placeawater

regulator whichhas widepowertodirect

councils and can stepinand upgrade

supplies if they feel they need to, so that’s

afairly bold step. But we are in aposition

where we have investedinour water

supplies over anumber of years.Only one

supplyisnot compliant and we are

working with residentsinPoyntzRdto

upgrade thatsupply.’’

4000 signatures

Apetition opposing aquarry at the Rangiora

Racecourse has drawn more than 4000

signatures.

The number shows ‘‘overwhelming

opposition to the quarry’’inthe community,

says its organiser, Tracey Dimmock­Rump,

who lives nearby.

‘‘I am so grateful to everyone who signedit.

‘‘Why would you give aresource consent to

putaquarryrightinthe firingline of homes,

rest homes, pre­schools, parks, ashopping

centre and restaurants? It is such astunning

area. Why not give it aprotected green­space

KAIKŌURA VIEWS

MAYOR CRAIG MACKLE

It is important that

service is honoured

It was great to see our community

facilities supervisor, Ian Woodward

(also known as Woody), receive an

award from the Lions Club for longstanding

community service.

We really appreciate all the work that

goes on in our community, and it is

important to see this hard work

recognised.

One of the positive aspects of my

duties as mayor is being able to

leverage support for our local

community.

The Mayoral Task Force for Jobs is a

collection of rural councils focused on

increasing youth/community

employment opportunities. We have

been given funding to deliver this

programme in Kaikoura.

We have allocated the funding to Te

Ha oMatauranga Learning in Kaikoura

as it is already delivering many of these

services.

It is in the best position to support the

new appointments and target

community members who will benefit

from the service.

The funding will enable afull­time

role for an employment co­ordinator.

I’ll be working closely with the new

position to connect local businesses

and employment opportunities with

locals looking for work.

The programme has alot of potential

for our community and I’m fully on

board with Te Ha oMatauranga,

working to ensure it is asuccess.

There are also two part­time roles for

ayouth employability facilitator and a

driving co­ordinator.

The earthquake rebuild programme

managed by the council is ending later

this year and this milestone gives us the

opportunity to reflect on what has been

achieved.

For the past few years, the council

team has managed a$38.6 million

programme of works covered by

government funding, of which only $2m

has been contributed by the council.

All this is being accomplished within

budget. And what’s more, if it had not

been for Covid­19, on time!

That is great news for Kaikoura and

its ratepayers.

The Ministry of Business, Innovation

and Employment has announced

further funding for responsible

camping, to follow on from the success

of last summer.

The council has put in an application

to fund local camping ambassadors to

educate, encourage and enforce

responsible camping in the district.

There is agrowing sense of unease

globally as the impacts of Covid­19

continue to affect our lives, and I’m

noticing that in Kaikoura as well.

The normal business that the council

undertakes is under extra pressure

because of Covid­19 delays affecting

the revision of the Annual Plan to

ensure lower rates increases, and the

beginning of the Long Term 10 Year

Plan process.

Iwould like to remind people how

much work is happening behind the

scenes at the council right now.

From what Ican see, staff are going

above and beyond what is normally

being asked of them in anormal year.

Removing trees also

erases memories

Dear Editor,

Regarding theremoval of trees at the

Ashley Rakahuri River Park,Iam

pleasedthatthe meeting between

elected representatives of ECan, the

Waimakariri District Council andthe

chairwoman of ECan tookplace. But

willthis prevent similar intentions to

clear fellany otherareas or just create

adelay following community

consultation?

It seemsitisfashionable to remove

introduced species that wereplanted

many years ago and replace them with

natives, thus changing thewhole

natureand appearance of an area.

Sadly, by removing old trees, old

memoriesand associations are

obliterated, too.The sense of loss is not

mitigated by little busheswhichmight

growinto atreeand if so, bearno

resemblance to what wasthere.

Yes, timesand fashions change, but

it is hardtobelieve that those beautiful

poplars were aflooding hazard and

had to be removed. Maybe their only

sin was they werethe wrong species in

ayoung landscape­graduate’s lexicon?

Surely we canhonour our beautiful

introduced species andadd natives to

the samearea.

Will theremoved trees be replaced

LETTERS

by the samespecies, evenifmost of us

won’tget to enjoy them in their

maturity?

Yours sincerely,

amid the uncertainty of Covid­19.

As Doug and FondaO’Callahan

prepare for the 10th annual

KaikouraHop, and their first

wedding anniversary, they face

the possibilityofneedingto

postpone it if New Zealand

remains at alert level 2.

‘‘Fornow we are pressing on

with holdingitfrom September 16

to 19, but if we need to move it,we

have set aside October 17,’’ Doug

says.

Roadworks on State Highway 1

challengeasthe eventcontinues

to increase in popularity.

Doug estimatesthere were

more than1500 cars at theSouth

Bay Racecourse on theSaturday

last yearand probably more than

3000 carsparked around South

Bay, adding up to around 10,000

car movements throughoutthe

day.

‘‘Last year we had more than

4000 carsand the problem is, it’s

getting too big for Kaikoura, so we

have to look at how we can run

largenumbers of peoplein

smaller groups,’’ Doug says.

‘‘We’ve got afew challenges this

year with the road, but the

council has got behind us in abig

way and we havebeen working

with NCTIR(the North

Canterbury Transport

Infrastructure Recovery alliance)

and the police.’’

This year’s themeis‘‘Kaikoura

Hop Graffiti 10 Years’’, with

festivities getting under way with

aquiz night at the Groper Bar on

Wedding anniversary ... Doug and Fonda O’Callahan are enjoying Fonda’s first wedding anniversary gift, a

people, we can all go together;

otherwisewewill needtosend

Fun line-up of events planned

By DAVID HILL

The next two months could be busy in

Kaikoura, should New Zealand return

to alert level 1.

While Covid­19 has created some

uncertainty, plenty of events are

planned in the tourist town in coming

weeks, depending on the alert level.

The Kaikoura Whale Run scheduled

for September 5has been cancelled, but

the town is gearing up for the Kaikoura

Hop from September 16 to 19, while the

Kaikoura Spring Festival and Lip Sync

competition are planned for October.

Residents are undeterred by the

cancellation of the inaugural Kaikoura

Winter Festival because of level 2, and

will bounce back with the inaugural

Spring into Summer Festival from

October 2to4.

There’s neverbeen

abetter time to

support local.

It will feature apoetry night, live

music, late­night shopping, markets,

food, games, The Great Kaikoura Road

Trip, astreet parade and the annual

Kaikoura Lip Sync Competition.

The lip sync contest was originally set

for August, but will now be on October 3,

with residents encouraged to ‘‘double

up and wander the streets of Kaikoura’’

in their lip sync costume. More details

will be available closer to the event.

One event which is going ahead is the

Porsche Club of New Zealand’s visit

this weekend, with 60 cars expected to

line up outside the White Morph Motor

Inn for public viewing.

The Kaikoura council has been

working to create events during quieter

periods in abid to attract visitors to the

town, community development and

events co­ordinator Jo York says.

Pool work to begin soon

The long­awaited Kaikoura Aquatic

Centre will soon start to takeshape.

The tendertobuild the centre has

been awarded to CMT Group NZ Ltd, and

construction of the 25­metre pooland

complex will start earlythis month.

The Marlborough and Canterbury

company willwork with local

subcontractors, withKaikoura firms

expected to provide at least 35 percentof

the building works or products.

KaikouraCommunity Charitable Trust

boardchairmanJohn Wyatt says it is

exciting to be breaking ground.

‘‘Theaquatic centre is somethingthat

the communityhas wanted for years.

Thereisareal sense of anticipation as

we see the project physically begin.”

Between the boardand the Kaikoura

District Council,funding of $3.7 million

has been secured.

The complex will include a25m by 12m

lap pool, a6mx10m multi­use learn­toswim/hydrotherapy

pool and abeachentry

toddler pool.Changing rooms and a

picnic/barbecue areawill alsobebuilt.

“Many of our funders havementioned

the unique sitewith the best view of any

pool in the country,’’MrWyatt says.

The fundraisingteam is now focusing

on extras, including achildren’saqua

play area and asplashpad with awhale

tail fountain and jet streams.

Eventssuch as The Great Kaikoura

‘‘Part of it is changing the way

businesses think. Winter has

traditionally been aquiet period so

many of them have shut their doors and

relied on the busy summer period, so

it’s about persuading the businesses to

open.’’

As long as New Zealand is at level 1,

more events are in the pipeline to

attract visitors, including the annual

Kaikoura Trotting Cup, which is set to

return in November, and the Kaikoura

A&P Show will be back in February.

The council has also been talking to

Fusion Events and has confirmed

Kaikoura will host atriathlon on

January 3.

Afanzone is also being planned for

the America’s Cup yacht racing in

March, with alarge, movable outdoor

screen to view the races.

Planned ... An artist’s impression of the

children’s splash pad.

RoadTrip on October 4will help

fundraise for thisadditional feature.To

Ultrasound machine aboost

KaikouraHealth’s new ultrasound

machineisproving to be an invaluable

asset.

KaikouraHealthdoctor Andrea Judd

says it is usedmultipletimeseveryweek.

‘‘It reallyismakingasignificant

differenceinensuring patients getthe

The Maia Health Foundation bought it

for Kaikoura Health thanks to substantial

donations of $22,000 each from Pegasus

Health and MainPower, and an individual

donationfromGerald and Peggy Salkeld.

It was installedinMarch.However, the

lockdown meant hopes for an official

unveiling were dashed.

However, in late Julythat was rectified,

Region atruly unique destination

By DAVID HILL

Kiwisare being encouraged to rediscover

what is ‘‘uniquely Kaikoura’’.

Destination Kaikouraplans to launch a

new #uniquelykaikoura brand in abid to

buildonits successfulwinter visitor

numbers and overcomeCovid­19

uncertainty.

Destination adviser Louise Frend says

the Kaikoura teamhas joined forceswith

ChristchurchNZtorun an ‘‘Explore

Christchurch’’campaign after Auckland

movedout of alert level3,and before

following up with its own campaign to

boostsummervisitor numbers.

‘‘If you are comingtoKaikoura you

should stay acouple of nights and get to

know the area.Really explore the place.

There’s plentytosee and do.

‘‘Kaikoura is well­known for its marine

serengetiand we have some incredible

hunting and fishing,some remote

accommodation and some amazing biking

and hikingtracks.

‘‘We are an adventurers playground and

then you can have anice cold beer,

seafood and eats as areward.’’

Destination Kaikouraisalso working

with its partnersinMarlborough, Hurunui

and Christchurch to promote ‘‘journeys’’

rather than simplydestinations.

‘‘We are awareofthe need to support

each othersoweare looking to promote

what there is to see and do on the way.

‘‘When you are comingtoKaikoura, stop

off in placeslike Waipara or Cheviot

wherethere are some wonderful wineries

and cafes,and when you go into

Marlborough it’s probably one of the most

beautifuldrives in the country.’’

Louise saysKaikourahas enjoyed a

booming winter, despite the lockdown and

the loss of overseastourists. Visitor

numbers wereup56percent during the

July school holidays, comparedtolast

year.

Destination ... Kiwis are rediscovering

Kaikoura as apopular visitor destination.

‘‘The numbers fellreasonably

significantly after that,but the town feels

busy and the accommodation places

appear to be quite busy.

‘‘It’s takenahit with Aucklandshut

down, but we are enjoying goodsupport,

with people coming for the weekend from

Nelson,Marlborough and Canterbury.

‘‘But thereisadegreeofconcernabout

the future, withthe international border

closed.’’

Despitethe uncertainty, therewas

plenty to be optimistic about, withthe

Sudima Hotel constructionprogressing,

the recent Ministry of Business,

Innovation and Employmentfunding

announcement,and the WakatuQuay

projectunderway.

The lackofoverseas visitorsalso meant

local businesseswere strugglingtorecruit

temporary and casual staff.

It’sspring: Let’sget cracking

Spring is upon us, and with it

comes ahost of gardenchores to

ensure you stay ahead of the

game. Rachel Vogan reports.

Gardening is therapy, and now is the time

to get yourgreen prescription.

The joys, rewards and sense of selfsatisfaction

provided by adirty weekend

in the garden are numerous.

The wait is over. Spring is here.

Stretch your arms above your headand

get ready to launchinto action outdoors.In

the warmer regions, wherethe soil is dry

enough, start plantingvegetable patches

now, but if you are in acooler area and the

soil still squelches under yourboots, give it

afew more weeks. Working and planting

in the soilwhen it is wet doesmore harm

than good, so holdoff.

Just becauseitisspring, it doesn’tmean

that Jack Frost has moved on —after cold

and wet periods,frosts can lurkuntil

November in somepartsofthe country.

Seedlingscan be protectedwith small

cloches, plastic covers, or frost cloth. If it

feelscold, tuck plants up for thenight.

Vegetables

This month is all aboutpreparationand

planting, so if your patchisstill toowet, get

busy sowingthe seeds indoors for tender

cropssuch as tomatoes, chillies, eggplants

and cucumbers.Ifsoilconditions are right,

sow the first rows of carrots, beetroot and

radishes. Hardycrops such as spring

onions, celery,broccoli,cabbage, bok choy,

lettuce, spinach and silver beet can all go

in by the punnet­load. For potatoes, make

sure you get them sprouting quickly to

ensure there are some for Christmas.

Don’tforget to feedyour soilbefore you

plant. Your cropswill thankyou.

Slugsand snailswill be out in force, too,

so arm yourself with plentyofbait to keep

your plants safe.

Plants for free

Lift and divideperennials this month,

especiallythe ones dormant underground

for afew months. Dividing plants is an

easy way to bulk up garden beds and fill

gaps. Delphiniums, hostas, red hot pokers,

daylilies,lady’s mantle,heuchera and

Thisisacheapand cheerful way to add

more plantstoyour garden, and it’s

amazing how oftenyou think of that friend

when their plantcomes intobloom.

Rose heaven

As soonasthe newgrowth starts, keep a

close eye out for aphids and greenfly

chewingout the petals or developing buds.

Rose spray helps prevent majorissues.

New rosesare plentifulinshops. Fertilise

existingroses withrose fertiliser.

Lawns

Expect arealflush of growth this month.

This marks the timetoweed and feedyour

lawn. These combination spraysare

availableeverywhere, killing the weeds

whilst fertilising thelawn.

Don’t go overboard –makesure to apply

at the recommendeddate, and be mindful

of the fact that overuse can cause burn­off.

Prepare new lawn areas for sowing now

by spraying off the area and raking it level.

Apply lawn fertiliser before sowing and

protecting the areaafterwards so pets,

kids and cars do not accidentally park and

mark your new turf.September, October

and Novemberare prime sowing months.

Fruit trees

Have you planted out yournew­season

fruit trees yet? Perhaps dwarf varieties

will suit. The treesdonot grow as big as

usual, butthe fruit remains the same size.

If space is at apremium, grow yourfruit

trees in larger grow bags or wine barrels,

the portability makingthem extra

convenient should you needtomove them.

Tips from aself-confessed potato-head

Afew straightforward strategies will have you on the path to producing

abumper crop of potatoes. Rachel Vogan explains.

Potatoes are abread­and­butter crop, with

origins that dateback centuries.

The high­carbohydrate tubers are

packed with fibre, potassiumand vitamins

Band C. Best of all,they taste far better

than theylook.

It isn’t the health benefitsthat see me

getting excited aboutseed potatoes

appearinginthe shops. It is the end

results. Iamapotato­head.Icome froma

long lineofpotatogrowers and lovers.

They were astaple in my grandparents’

garden. Theystillare in my father’s

garden andinour garden,too.

Potatoes are an easy croptogrow,with

the quickest varietiestakingabout three

months to mature from planting, through

to the longer­term cropsthat take fouror

five months. Initially, not alot of effort is

required,other thansprouting seed

potatoes.

Don’tbetempted to plant those runaway

ones you find at the bottom of the

vegetable binorpantry that havebegun to

sprout. Thoserogue escapeeswill never

produce adecent harvest, making them

not worth the effort.

Plantingcertified seed potatoes gives

you the assurance that the potatoesare

free from pestsand disease,true to type

and more reliable growers.

Lay seed potatoes in asingle layer, in a

tray or box, in acool, dark area.While the

seed potatoesare sprouting,prepare the

area in whichyou plan to plantthem.

Seed potatoes are available to buy in all

sortsofplaces,from hardware shops to

supermarkets,over the next couple of

months.

–let us service your

homes irrigation

systembefore

you’ll need it.

Feeding

Potatoes enjoy abalanceddiet; theyare

agreedycrop. For best results, use

specific potatofertiliser before planting.

The trick is to make surefertiliser is well

mixed into thesoil before planting seed

potatoes. The young potatoissensitive and

might getburnt by the fertiliserifitisn’t

mixed well enoughinto the soil.

For those who have no other option and

wish to do everythinginone day, you can

insteadsprinkle the fertiliser on top of the

soil afterplanting and water it in.

Mounding

Mounding up the soilaround your

potato plants keepsthe sun off the

developing crop, improves drainage and

increases the potentialharvest.

Watering

Potatoes are made up of alot of water,

which they absorb from the soil as they

develop. Keep the crops well watered

throughdrier periods. Rather than

watering alittle every day, give beds asoak

two or three timesaweek.Pour abucket

of waterover tubs and containers.

Planting

Whetheryou choosetogrow spudsin

they get plenty of sun. They must be

plantedinsoil or garden mix that is loose

and friable,and to adepth of 30cm.

The key to awildlife-friendly native garden

Why not attract native birds and pest-devouring lizards

to your garden? Veronica Armstrong reports.

somenative plants and

dispersing their seeds.

Gardens are not just where we

grow our favouriteflowers, fruits

and vegetables. They are also

shared with avarietyofwild

birdsand other smallanimals,

whether seen or unseen.

Attractingthem means we get

to enjoy their presence.

Encouraging native specieshas

addedvalue when you consider

many of themare now in decline,

have lost their habitat to

development,and are falling

prey to introduced predators.

Here are some suggestions to

for awildlife­friendlygarden.

The most important things that

native animals look for in garden

environments are places to

shelter from bad weather,

predatorsand competitors, safe

places to nestand reartheir

young, and sourcesoffood. A

good,hospitable garden needs to

provide all of these things.

Birds

To provide shelterand safe

nesting/roosting sites for birds,

you need to havelarge shrubs

and trees.Installing ametal

possum guard aroundthe trunk

can helpprotect them in rural

areas, and can also work to keep

cats and ratsfrom nests.

Introducingavarietyofnative

plants will provide fruit, nectar

and insects thatthe wild birds

can feedon. For nectar, kowhai,

flax,kakabeak, wineberry,

rewarewa and hebe are all

nativesknowntobegood

sources, while species such as

coprosma, pittosporum,

broadleaf,poroporo, kawakawa

and cabbage trees –among others

–provide fruit.

Fruittrees attract adiverse

rangeofbirdlife including

silvereyes, bellbirds, tui, kereru

and kaka.

Otherdelightful littlebirds

such as fantailsand grey

warblers willbeattracted to

insectsonthe shrubs, trees and

in the leaf litter. Some introducedplant

species such as

banksias and aloescan prove to

be usefulproviders of nectar.

Putting out asugar solution

can alsoprovide avaluablefood

source for nectar­feeding birds

when natural sourcesare scarce.

Avoidusinghoney as, while birds

like it, so do bees, meaning it can

spread bee diseases. Instead, use

raw sugarand add afew drops of

red colouring, as birdsare

attracted to red flowers.

Providing extrafood helps the

birdssurvivethe winter.

Lizards

It’s not only birds that can be

attracted to our gardens –lizards

can be tempted in, too.

We have twotypes:geckos and

skinks.Surprisingly, the secretto

attracting lizards lies in not

having atidy garden.Agood

While lizards are somewhat

Rodriguez does his bit for birds

By DAVID HILL

Rodriguez the cat has been

doing his bit to save

Kaikoura’s endangered

dotterels.

The South Bay cat has

been modelling aGPS

collar, allowing researchers

to track his movements as

part of efforts to create

‘‘CatMap Kaikoura’’ to

protect the dotterel.

The findings show

Rodriguez doesn’t like going

too far and didn’t cross the

road to go to the beach over

aseven­day period, which is

no surprise to his family as

he is known for being lazy

and not wandering much.

The Banded Dotterel

Project is acollaboration

between local volunteers

and University of

Canterbury researcher Dr

Shane Orchard.

It is exploring cat­related

issues and their impact on

local wildlife.

Last year, on the beach

between South Bay and

Pohowera, around 82

percent of nests were

invaded, almost all by cats,

which are thought to have

been responsible for the

deaths of at least 10% of the

breeding birds.

As well as the GPS collars,

live capture traps are being

placed intermittently along

the South Bay beach in an

attempt to reduce the feral

cat population.

The volunteers are aware

The Hurunui District Council has signed

up for the first wave of governmentbacked

water reforms.

It means the council will get agrant of

up to $7.5 million to upgrade its threewaters

assets as partofthe Government’s

$761mCovid­19 funding package to

support economic recovery.

Councillorssoughtassurance during

Thursday’s council meetingthat signing

up to amemorandumofunderstanding,

and aseparate funding agreement,did

not commit the council to the second

tranche of the reforms. They also wanted

certaintythere would be fullpublic

consultation on futureplansfor water.

The government proposes anationwide

reform of waterservices, with five

waterauthoritiesnationwide.

Currently, their delivery in each

district is the responsibility of the local

territorial authority.

The secondlot of funding will be late

next year, when aCrownwaterauthority

or authorities couldtake over council

waterfunctions, includingtheirassets.

Council chief executive Hamish

Dobbie told councillorsthat signing up to

the memorandum committed the council

to providing the government withdetails

aboutits three­waterassets —drinking

water, stormwaterand wastewater—

and services,along with its plans for the

department in the future.

It did not mean the council would be

handing over control of its water assets.

He emphasisedthe agreements were

not binding on either party and it was the

council’s view that entering into the

agreements was in the best interests of

Hurunui ratepayers.

ADRIEL REST HOME

22 North Canterbury News, September 3, 2020

SENIOR LIVING

Cup­cake fundraiser ... People can phone in their order for Adriel’s cup cakes.

Residents kept busy

during lockdown

Zoom meetings, baking and A&P show

preparation helped Adrielresidents

and staff cope with Covid­19 level2

restrictions.

Adriel Houseand Rest Home, for

thosewho have memory loss, locked

down to keepits residentssafe. This put

the brakes on visitors coming into the

home,and took outings off the

programme.

Restrictions also forced the

cancellation of an open day and a

community education evening, where

some fundraisingwas going to take

place.

The owner of the Amberley­based

home,Mischeal McCormack, said

August was International Awareness

monthfor Spark of Life, which wasgoing

to be celebratedatthe education

evening. The Spark of Life philosophy is

embracedatAdriel.

The focus of the programme is on the

quality of the connection betweencarers

and residentsand theirfamilies, and to

foster kindness, compassion, empathy,

and respect.

Acup­cake fundraiser, whichwas to

be partofthe open day, has now been

brought in­house, with cook Amy

McCormack readytosupply an

assortment of cup cakeswhich will sell

for $5 fortwo.

Mischeal says anyonewho would like

to supportthe fundraisercan simply

phoneintheir order.

Residents have also beencooking up a

storm, using favourite recipes to make

tempting baking and dishes as part of a

project to produce arecipe book.

Mischeal says residents haveloved

beinginthe kitchen and reminiscing

abouttheirfavourite recipes, andwhat

theirmothers used to make.

Staffhave takenphotos of the end

productstoensure the recipe bookis

full of colour and variety.

‘‘It is afun thing.Even the menhave

lovedjoiningin,’’ she says. The recipe

book will alsosell for $5.

Restricted visitinghas introduced

residents to new technology, with Zoom

meetingstakingplace with family,

particularly on Mother’s Day.

However, keeping residents busy,

includingbringinganimals intothe

home for avisit, has ensured they have

not hadtime to misstheir families.

Mischeal says the vegetablegardenis

stunning thankstothe effortsof

residents, mostly men,who havespenta

lot of timecultivatingand planting.

‘‘It has neverlookedsogood. They

have lovedbeingout there helping.’’

Residents are also preparing to enter

in avarietyofclasses at the local A&P

show in late October.Adriel will have a

tent at the show for anyone to pop in and

say hello, and get any informationthey

want about whatAdriel can offer.

Cashing up ... The end of Bonus Bonds has been announced.

Bank announces end of

Bonus Bonds scheme

What will the end of BonusBonds mean

for those withahistoryofthese

investments?

ANZ Investment Services (New Zealand)

Ltd (ANZIS) has said it will stopaccepting

new investment into the schemeaslow

interestrates continue to reducethe prize

pool.

“We’re always reviewing our investment

productstoensure they bestserve the

interests of investors,”said Ben Kelleher,

the managing director of retail and

business banking for ANZ.

“Low interestrates have reduced the

investment returns of the scheme,which

affects the size of the prize pool.

‘‘It has now becomeapparent those

trends are likely to continueinthe

medium term. The Official Cash Rate,

currently at ahistorically low 0.25 percent,

may fall further in early2021asthe global

economy grapples withthe impacts of

Covid­19.

“The ANZISboard decided it is no

longer appropriate to acceptnew

investment into Bonus Bondswith

immediate effect, and intends to start

winding up the schemenolater than the

end of October.

‘‘Winding up the schemeincludes the

process of returning fundsto

bondholders,’’hesays.

Mr Kelleher said before the startofa

wind­up, the schemewill continue to

operate, with two more prize draws.

Bonus Bonds was launched by the New

Zealand Government through the Post

Officein1970.

Instead of earning interest or receiving

investment gains or losses, each eligible

Bonus Bond givesbondholders one entry

into the monthly prize draw,where

investment returnsare returned as

prizes.

The topprize in the monthlydraw is $1

million.

The Septemberand October prize draws

are intended to be held as scheduled and

customers can continuetoredeemtheir

bonds until windingupstarts.

However, ANZIS might move to an

earlier wind­up, for example, if there is a

heavy demand for redemptions or it

otherwise considers it is in the overall best

interests of investorstodoso.

“Investorshave two choices.Theycan

redeemtheirBonus Bonds beforethe

schemestarts to wind up,orstay in the

schemeand be entitled to ashare of the

remaining reserves, after expenses,when

the scheme is wound up,”MrKelleher

says.

“Thosewho choose to stay during the

wind­up phase will have their investments

lockedinduringthis process, whichmay

take up to 12 months.The board believes

current reserves are sufficientfor

bondholders to be confident they will

receive back their initial investment.’’

The reserves represent the surplusof

the value of assetsinthe schemeover the

claimsofbondholders.

END OF LIFE CHOICE REFERENDUM —ELECTION 2020

30 North Canterbury News, September 3, 2020

The end of the journey

The euthanasia debate has taken a

long and winding path to become the

End of Life Choice referendum. Mike

Houlahan reviews how New Zealand

got to this point, and how the law

stands in other countries.

PHOTO: REBECCA RYAN

French philosopher and author

Albert Camus said since we were

all going to die, it was obvious

that when and how did not

matter.

Had Camus been in New

Zealand for the past 25 years, he

would have seen that in fact it

matters to agreat many people,

very much indeed.

ACT New Zealand leader

David Seymour’s End Of Life

Choice legislation, which will

come into force should New

Zealanders vote in favour of it in

areferendum being held in

conjunction with the October 17

election, is the fourth attempt by

parliamentarians to change the

law in this area.

Michael Laws —now on the

Otago Regional Council but then

aNational Party MP —

introduced the Death with

Dignity Bill in 1995, inspired by

the battle of colleague Cam

Campion against terminal bowel

cancer.

That voluntary euthanasia

proposal failed by amargin (61 to

29), but advocates were not

deterred.

New Zealand First MP Peter

Brown, who had watched his wife

die of cancer in 1984, waged a

dignified and determined

campaign throughout 2003 for his

Death with Dignity Bill —apiece

of legislation almost exactly the

same as Mr Laws’ Bill.

This time the debate was much

more finely balanced, Mr

Brown’s Bill being defeated

60­58, with one abstention.

Although there was an

apparent change in political

mood, it took until 2012 for

another MP, Labour’s Maryan

Street, to put abill on the issue in

the Member’s Bill ballot.

Despite her bill prompting

considerable public debate, Ms

Street opted to withdraw it the

following year, saying she did not

believe it would receive the

consideration it was due in an

election year.

Parliament also considered

three petitions during this time:

Two opposed to euthanasia and

one, in the name of Ms Street, in

favour.

None of the subsequent select

committee reports proposed law

reform in the area.

Undeterred, ACT leader David

Seymour took up the baton and

proposed his End of Life Choice

Bill, which in November last year

Parliament passed 69­51, but

subject to the outcome of the

upcoming referendum.

While lawmakers have

wrestled with this issue, so have

the courts, and several

significant cases have influenced

public opinion on the matter.

New Zealand’s first major

courtroom test of euthanasia

came in 2004, when former

Whanganui intensive care nurse

Lesley Martin was tried for the

attempted murder of her mother.

Police had investigated cancer

patient Joy Martin’s death in

1999, but moved to prosecute

after her daughter published a

memoir, To Die Like ADog,in

which she described injecting

her mother with morphine.

Lesley Martin was convicted

and eventually spent 7 1 ⁄2 months

in jail, but not without

considerable controversy.

Acase with strong parallels

played out in Dunedin in 2011,

when university professor Sean

Davison was charged with the

attempted murder of his mother

seven years previously.

Davison, from South Africa,

also wrote abook about his

experiences, and returned to

New Zealand to face trial.

However, four days into that

High Court hearing, the Crown

amended the charge to one of

inciting and procuring his

mother’s suicide.

Davison, now the president of

the World Federation of Right to

Die Societies, pleaded guilty and

was sentenced to five months’

home detention.

Those cases involved grieving

children who argued they were

helping adesperately ailing

parent.

A2015 case brought by

Wellington lawyer Lecretia

Seales was entirely different.

Diagnosed with aterminal

brain tumour, Ms Seales, 42, went

to the High Court at Wellington to

argue for adeclaration on behalf

of her GP that the doctor would

not face prosecution if he

assisted her to die.

While too ill to argue her case

herself, Ms Seales did make it to

court to hear some of the

arguments.

Ms Seales died, unassisted, the

day after Justice David Collins

delivered his decision, which

declined to grant any of the

declarations Ms Seales sought

and said the issue was one for

Parliament rather than the

courts to address.

Almost immediately, David

Seymour announced he would

place the End of Life Choice Bill

in the Member’s Bill ballot.

In 2017, Mr Seymour struck it

lucky —firstly, that in June his

bill was drawn and, secondly,

that he retained his seat in that

year’s election, which meant he

was able to keep the bill on

Parliament’s Order Paper.

The ‘‘Bill History’’ on

Parliament’s website testifies to

the dogged struggle of both proand

anti­euthanasia advocates:

The bill’s first and second

readings were 18 months apart,

and its four month­long

committee stage saw the House

discuss 113 proposed

amendments —many of which

were proposed to filibuster the

bill’s progress.

The act, which has received

Royal Assent, will come into

force only if more than 50 percent

of voters in the referendum vote

‘‘yes'’.

We will not know that on

election night: The Electoral

Commission says it will

announce preliminary results for

both the End of Life Choice and

cannabis referendums on

October 30.

Bill would leave people in control of their fate

By DR FRANKKUEPPERS

Iamaurological surgeon. The majority

of my workinvolvescancer treatment: I

witness terminal illnessand death from

canceronaregularbasis.

Lengthy talks with my patients about

the final stageoflife show me their

anxieties and worriesthatcome with

that.

Often, Iamsurprisedthatthe

approaching deathisnot their main

worry. Many of my patients dread the

potentiallossofbodily andmental

functions, the lossofautonomy and

dignity in thatstageoflife.

Personally, Ishare thisconcern.

As amedicalpractitioner, Isee my

roleinprotecting lives and prolonging

lifewherepossible.

THE CASE FOR EUTHANASIA

Thiscan,unfortunately, result in

prolonging astateofverylittlequality of

life.

One wayofmanaging these patients is

withholdingofmedical treatmentand

supportivepalliativecare.

While this approach canspeedupthe

timetodeath, it still leavesthe patient

withthe prospect of suffering, and

dependence on others.

Unfortunately,Isee patientsthat need

painfulpalliative interventions at the

end of theirlife where specialised

medicalinput is needed that is beyond

the abilitiesofahospice.

Thisdreadful stage of adiseasecan

lastfor weeks.

Ithink it is very important thatany

form of medically assisted dying does

not replace palliative care.

However,ifIwereever faced with a

conditionthatmakeslifeunbearable,I

would wanttolive in acountrythat

allows me the autonomy to diewith

dignity as Ichoose it.

The proposed law change in Aotearoa

is very conservativeininternational

comparison.

The example of othercountries

(Belgium, TheNetherlands,

Switzerland)showsthat abuseofend­oflifechoice

is prettymuch non­existent.

Asignificantpercentageofpatients

who havebeenacceptedfor medically

assisted dying might not takethe lethal

medications and still seeout the natural

cause of theircondition.

But knowing thatthey are in controlof

their fateseems to give them peaceand

assurance —something that Idonot

often seewithmypatients here.

New Zealandhas astrong and proud

historyofpioneering societalchanges

thatare common sense now,suchas

votingrights for women or the right to an

abortion.

As asociety, we are matureenough for

the End of LifeChoiceAct.

Difficult time ... Euthanasia provision may be difficult, even for those who personally

Making the peaceful

transition to death

THE CASE AGAINST EUTHANASIA

By DR DAVE MCKAY

As aGPand palliativemedicinedoctor,

Iamprivilegedtoworkwith dying

patients.

Dying is rarely easy, often difficultto

bear witness to, andcan be atense

journeyforeachpatient,their whanau

andattendinghealthprofessionals.

It is acomplex andvitaltransitionin

life.

Imaintainacommitment to patients,

assisting in the bestwayIcan,

respecting their wishes while

addressingthe illness.

Likewise, Icommittowhanauand the

healthcareteamsinvolved,assisting

with my medical knowledge,skills and

practiceexperience.

Ourmutual goal is to make this

complextransitionaspeacefuland

resolvedaspossible.

My professionalguiding philosophies

andethics include the Hippocraticoath

—‘‘I will notgiveafataldraughtto

anyoneifIamasked, norwill Isuggest

such athing’’ —and the matriarch of

palliative medicine,CicelySaunders:

‘‘You matterbecause youare you and

youmattertothe end of yourlife.Wewill

do all wecan not onlyto help you die

peacefully but also to liveuntil youdie.’’

Iamnotinfavourofthe EndofLife

ChoiceBill. Isupport treating suffering,

helping peopleliveuntil they die.

Icannotsupport proactively ending a

person’s life. Irejectlegislation

requiring that of me.

Nonetheless, Idonot advocate futile

prolongationoflife in thefaceof

suffering thatisnot resolvable with

impendingdeath inthe near future. This

is averyimportantdistinction.

People need to be abletotrust my

unreservedintention of supportinglife

until death ensues, whiletrustingthat

we wouldnotprolong suffering. There

should be no ambiguity aboutthis.

Forthosewho wish controlovertheir

timeofdeath,they can taketheir own

life. However, for one to ask another to

provide euthanasia for them is asking

another to kill them.

Theconceptofkilling apatient whose

lifeis entrustedtoourcare is foreign,

andtension­filled for doctors.

It would be impossible for many

doctors.

Euthanasia provisionmay be difficult

assisted dying. Icannotimagine

administering alethaldose to then

watch andwaitwhile theperson diesas

aconsequence. Thisiswhatthe bill

requires.

Although somehavecommittedtoa

choicetodieat thetimethey choose,

mostlypeople are afraid of suffering. It

is oftenpainand existential distress that

produces the fearofliving until death.

Occasionally, peopleaskfor their

distress, present or anticipated, to end

by way of early death.Upon alleviating

suffering, it is rarely aprescribed death

that many wishfor.

Palliative careaddressessuffering,

not intentionally ending life,and so

euthanasia and palliativecare are

mutually exclusive.

There is aquestionable role for

euthanasia in palliativecare.

Unfortunately, this bill opensupa

slidingscale for peopleto giveupon

living.People may miss out on valuable

timealive if theyenacted an earlier

death.

If legislation for euthanasia is passed

in New Zealand, therewillbeachoice

for terminalpatients, and as adoctor,I

will respect the person’schoice,

irrespective of my ethics.

Iwill provide ongoing palliative care

to maintain as good alife until death

ensues.

Myrole in their care willbe

unchanged, helping theperson to liveas

wellaspossible to theirlast days.

Atthe point where theywish to end

theirlife, Iwould needto hand over to

the appropriate service. However,Ido

not believe individual doctors should be

allowed or responsible forendinga

person’slife.

Euthanasia is not amedical or

palliativetreatment; it is aperson’s

choicetoendtheirlife.

AHurunui farmer has been doing his bit

to protect native fish on his property.

Ben Ensor, who has farmed

Willowgrove for 15 years, has been

workingwith Environment Canterbury

habitat.

“The waterways are amazing withtheir

water qualityand clarity, so we want to

Seasoned shearer to compete

By DAVID HILL

Oxford shearer Dave Brooker

is looking forward to testing

his skills against the younger

shearers at November’s New

Zealand Corriedale Shearing

and Woolhandling

Championships.

Entries are open for the

annual competition, which

will be held at Marble Point

Station, near Hanmer

Springs, on November 5to6,

after the annual New

Zealand Agricultural Show

was cancelled because of

Covid­19.

The Shearing Sports New

Zealand region 2chairman

first learned to shear 45 years

ago as ateenager.

‘‘I’m planning to compete

this year. Idon’t quite match

the speed of those elite

shearers any more, but Ihold

my own,’’ Mr Brooker says.

In his 20s he took up

shearing professionally when

‘‘I finally realised Iwasn’t

going to be an All Black’’.

‘‘And since then I’ve been

trying to make the Golden

Shears final, which Ihaven’t

managed to do,’’ Mr Brooker

jokes.

While his All Black dreams

came up short, his daughter

Grace is amember of the New

Zealand women’s rugby team,

the Black Ferns.

These days, Mr Brooker has

his own business, Lifestyle

Worx, serving lifestyle blocks

and small farms. It includes a

mobile shearing service.

❛I’m planning to

compete this year. I

don’t quite match the

speed of those elite

shearers any more,

but Ihold my own.❜

—Shearer Dave Brooker

While there was still some

uncertainty with Covid­19, Mr

Brooker says the intention is

for the shearing at Marble

Point Station to be open to

the public.

Woolhandling will be held

on the Thursday, with aplace

in the New Zealand woolhandling

test team to

compete against Australia up

for grabs for the winner.

The shearing will be held

the next day, with the annual

contest being part of the

circuit leading up to the

Golden Shears final.

The event also includes

New Zealand’s premier

blade­shearing event.

‘‘So it’s avery prominent

competition. It’s just not

being held at the show this

year,’’ Mr Brooker says.

‘‘We’re not sure yet how

many entries we will get, but

we are expecting it to be a

strong competition.’’

Support from sponsors has

been better than expected, he

says.

‘‘All of our sponsors bar one

loss rateswith normalfluctuations in

stocknumbers or winter feed area,

whichcan trigger aconsentrequirement.

This planchange addresses that,” she

says.

To ensurethat the change wouldnot

compromise water quality in the

Hurunui catchment, Amuri Irrigation

Company Limited(AIC) surrendered a

portion of itsconsented nitrogen load to

offset anypotential increase in nitrogen

load from drylandfarming.

This willmake sure that the limit set in

the originalplan for the Hurunui River

wouldnot be exceeded.

“The council acknowledged and

thanked AIC for its help andcooperationthrough

the Plan Change 1

process,”CrMcKay said.

“Without thissurrender of nitrogen

load,itisunlikely thatPlan Change 1

wouldhave been possible,particularly in

this catchment. It will greatly help to

maintainwater quality in the zone.”

Simple answers to sediment issues

By DAVID HILL

Every day farm items ... Hay

bales, warratahs and cloth can

be all you need to control

sediment during drainage works.

PHOTOS: ENVIRONMENT CANTERBURY

Controlling sedimentand

nutrient run­offdoesn’t need

to be complicated.

Farmers in theKaikoura

PlainsRecoveryProject

have found innovative and

cost­effectivewaystocontrol

sediment and nutrientrunoffduring

drainageworks at

ademonstration site by using

basic farmitems.

Membersofthe project

team have been working with

AqualincResearch Ltdto

develop solutions to prevent

more than 90 percentof

sediment and nutrient

materialfromentering

waterways duringdrainage

work.

Filtering sediment during

drainage works reduces

sediment and nutrient runofffrom

enteringlocal waterways.

Project manager Jodie

Hoggard saysthe team

wantedtofindasimple, costeffectivemethod

thatuses

everyday items foundaround

thefarm.

“Number 8wire kindof

stuff,that would align with

industry­agreed good

managementpractice

(GMP),” shesays.

Theteam usedmaterials

such as haybales, warratahs

andclothavailablefrom

general farm retailersor

roading contractors.

By lining theend of the

drain withcloth­covered hay

bales and staking the bales

into theground,the team

created a‘‘sediment trap’’

whichpreventedmore than

90%ofthe contaminants

from entering thewaterway

from the drain.

“Withoutany realindustryled

examples forsediment

controlduring works onfarm,

we hatched the method

together on the fly,but

realised it’s actually

somethingthat could be

adaptedfor most farm

drainage worksituations,’’

Jodie says.

“We foundtherewas

plenty of information on

sediment control in

developments androad

construction,but nothing

reallylogical for on the

farm.”

Innovative solution ... Filtering sediment duringdrainage works

reduces sediment and nutrient run­off from entering local waterways.

Merger

signalled

PrimaryWool Co­Operative

(PWC)and Wools of NewZealand

(WONZ)have begunformal

discussions about combining

operations as they seek to capture

more value for farmers.

Now, morethan ever, the wool

industry must collaborate to get

better financial results for

farmers,WONZ chairman James

Parsons says.

‘‘Bringing together two likeminded

grower organisations will

be an importantfirst step in

rejuvenating arelatively dire

current economic situationfor

wool. Having over 2000 passionate

sheep farmers under one

umbrella and building astronger

entity to representthose farmer

interestswill offer the combined

scale and vision required to make

adifference for New Zealand’s

sheep industry.

‘‘Our goal is to capture more

value by building stronger, more

direct relationships with

customers and consumers,’’ he

says. ‘‘WONZhas already been

doing that but we have never had

the scale to turn the dial.’’

Combiningwith PWC,

representing its 1400 farmer

shareholders and its 50 per cent

ownership of Carrfields Primary

Wool, will meanthey can achieve

scale, reinvent the supply chain

and improve efficiencies,hesays.

PWC chairman Hamish de

Lautoursays the collaboration

will help position wool where it

belongs.‘‘If wool is to capitalise

on its rightful place as the

sustainable fibreofchoice for

consumers, the stronger entity

must focusonmarketing and

extracting value from products

made of wool and not just trading

wool as acommodity.’’

Mr Parsons says both WONZ

and PWC envisage alean, simple

commercial structure.

What’s happening in your

community…

Mandeville Footbridge Repairs

Kaiapoi’s Mandeville Foot Bridge will remain closed

for awhile longer so further repairs can be made

following the discovery of timber rot in asecond

structural tower.

Since January, contractors have been busy

repairing the bridge, aer rot was found in one of

the structural tower posts during aroutine check in

December 2019. That tower has been replaced.

However while using awater blaster, asecond

bridge pile on the northern embankment was found

to be in poor condition.

Athick steel sleeve has been designed to cover the

damaged portion of the bridge pile, which will be

installed.

Rot has also been found in three sections of deck

beams, as well as in asecond tower directly above

the damaged bridge pile, also at the northern

embankment. Hardwood timber has been sourced,

and this repair will follow ononce the steel sleeve

has been fitted to the bridge pile.

We aim to complete the structural and

maintenance works as soon aspossible to allow

for the bridge to re-open in early September.

It will need to close again in summer for repainting

work. We’ll provide an update when timing

has been confirmed.

10 Years Since Kaiapoi Earthquake

It’s been 10 years this weekend since we were

shaken awake with amajor earthquake that

significantly changed Kaiapoi, The Pines Beach

and Kairaki as well asthe wider District. Much has

happened in those 10years.

We’ve been working on behalf ofthe community

to deliver on the outcomes inthe Waimakariri

Residential Red Zone Recovery Plan. This includes

building new facilities like parks and reserves,

walking and cycling tracks, aBMX track, dog park,

restoring alowland forest as well as allocating

mixed use business areas and the infrastructure

that services them all.

There is still much todowith projects like soball

courts, Mahinga kai areas to be developed and

the shovel ready project to reduce the impact of

flooding on urban and rural areas of Kaiapoi, to

name afew.

The event planned tocommemorate this

anniversary has been postponed due to COVID-19

restrictions. However, weare sure many people will

take amoment to reflect on our journey over the

last 10 years.

Reminder About Christchurch

Northern Corridor

Delays are expected as road resurfacing on the

Waimakariri Bridge’s southbound lanes will started

this week, requiring the closure of the Tram Road

on-ramp during the morning peak hours on working
