Fun wigs show support

TONI.WILLIAMS

@ashburtoncourier.co.nz

St Joseph Schoolpupils were at school

yesterday with coloured hair, funky hair

styles, hats and wigstoraise money and

awareness for childcancer.

Itwas national Wig Wednesday

organised to support theChild Cancer

Foundation.

The pupils, teachers and school

support staff wore wigsofall colours in

styleslong and short, straight and curly.

Some pupils alsocoloured

their hair,smothered

it in hair product

or jazzeditup

with glitter, bows, ribbons or headbands.

St Joseph School deputy principal

Claire Corbett said it was afun way to

raise money, and awareness,for child

cancer.

Over the years the school had families

whose children were diagnosed with

cancer, including acurrent family whose

child hasleukaemia. The school had

supported the cause for the past few years.

Wig Wednesday was organised by the

school’s Young Vinnies group,made up of

pupils fromYear 5toYear 8and, as it was

pupil­led, most of the 260 pupils took part

in some way whether it was witha

hair style or through

donatingmoney.

In New Zealand every weekthree

families get devastating newstheirchild

hascancer.

The chemotherapy treatment means

some of these kids will have to face the

world with no hair.

Wig Wednesday was set uptohelp

those children as thousandsofordinary

Kiwis, including those at St Joseph

School, wear awig, shave their heads or

style afunky hair­do to raise money.

Dr Chris Ryan has officially hung up

his stethoscope andleft his

Ashburton medical practice.

Dr Ryan,65, is planning to ‘‘sit in

thesun’’ at Lincoln in his retirement.

He spentthe past 31 years as GP at

Moore StreetMedicalCentre.

He moved to Ashburtonwith his

wife, Mairead andtwo young

childreninthe late1980s after

finding life in Wellington not to his

liking.

‘‘When you haveayoung family

your priorities changealot. City life

doesn’t have thesame attraction as it

usedtohave and you’rethinking

more of schools and space,and flat

land to kick aball around,’’ he said.

‘‘Ashburton’s aprosperoustown,

although it was going through avery

hard time then, schooling was good,

housing was very reasonable.

‘‘Itseemedavery goodpackage and

Ifound it wasbetterthan Iexpected.

Ifound it very pleasant.’’

There have been somehighs and

lows with many changesinthe

community in the past30years.

‘‘WhenIcame it wasprobably the

whitest place in the country butnow

it’s very cosmopolitan and I’ve found

that quite interesting and enjoyable

really.’’

‘‘It’s very much like Wellington

with people mixing together more.I

think that’s veryexcitingand

stimulating.’’

However recruiting younger GPs to

thearea was anongoingissue as well

as getting accesstospecialist medical

care.

It wasgetting harder to get patients

in need access to see specialists, or in

for surgery, especially those in real

need, he said.

While on­call commitments had

Dr Chris Ryan

eased there was still feweryoung

doctors wantingtocommit to a

community practice,with many not

ready to set down roots.

He said the loss of specialist

medical care in thedistrict and the

downgrading of Ashburton Hospital

was aconcern.

‘‘We lost quite abit when we lost

our specialists. You’re gettingletters

back from bureaucracysaying

(patients) don’t meet criteria ... and

someofthem are pretty well crippled

or in agony.There justisn’tthe

attempt to getthem in.’’

He said there was often no clear

way to go forward with acase.

‘‘Once upon atime you could senda

letter to aseniorcolleague andit

wouldbeconsidered and they had an

obligation to reply to you. The public

health service haslargely shrugged

its shouldersonthat really.

‘‘The district healthboard is now

blaming having to getthings done in

the privatesector with specialists.

‘‘Toalarge extent(those specialists

have) felt disenfranchised with alack

of medicalleadership and so they

have decided you can’t do the job

withoutussoyou’ll have to do it on

our terms, with the patient being lost

in the middle really.’’

Dr Ryansaid it was importantMid

Cantabrians kept awatch on what

washappening with the Canterbury

District HealthBoard.

‘‘There has been lots of money

overspent but not much of it in

Ashburton. It’s very much akneejerk

reaction in the city too, as Ifound

from myone term on the hospital

board, to cutoff theperiphery from

the facilities. Ithink if peoplevalue

whatthey are getting now they should

watch it carefully.’’

He believed there was alot of staff

employed over the years but theyhad

not been used efficiently.

‘‘There have been alot of contracts

signed in Christchurch but withnot

with agreat deal of patient benefit.’’

Thedebtincurred at the district

health board was not all to do with

earthquake recovery,hesaid.

‘‘I’ve been very lucky to work in the

timeIhave, and there has stillbeen a

sense of doctor/patient relationship

going ... I’ve had somemarvellous

patients which has made mylife very

satisfying.

‘‘You hear nowmedical centres

seeminglywant to stop patients from

seeingthe doctor.’’

There was lessdoctorcontinuity

which resulted in aloss of personal

service.

‘‘I’ve often thought Iwas the last

family grocer and the supermarkets

are taking over,’’hesaid.

CBD work plan changed to help retailers

Ashburton retailers arepleased

contractors revampingthe CBDhave

alteredtheirwork scheduletomakeit

easier for Christmas shoppers.

Retailers were worried timing of

thework on Tancred Street would

affect trading andbusiness owners

Chris Redmond,Richard Wilson and

BobMcDonald met with Ashburton

District Council seniorstaff to find a

compromise.

The work on TancredStreetwas to

have startedatCass Street and

worked towardsEast Street.Now

contractors have agreed to alter their

scheduletostartatEastStreet early

next monthand work towards Cass

Street.

That section ofTancred Street,at

least to the pedestrian crossing, will

be completebyDecember.

Mr McDonald saiditwas agood

outcome forretailers andshoppers.

Customers would be able to enjoya

new Tancred Street, with East Street

and BurnettStreet largely untouched.

Theshoppingprecinctwouldbea

more welcoming place leadingupto

Christmasand while thechanges

would notsuiteveryone,they would

benefit themajority, he said.

‘‘While it makes more sense for

them to work from theCassStreet

tourist spot’s landdesignationfromruralBto

recommendationtocouncil after weighing up

Agreen light from her would allow

Farmers Corner to thenseek consent to build

retail complex.

OwnerPeterHuang wants to provide more

thanashop­and­go facility and in the future

would like to build silo accommodation and

MidCanterbury tourismoperators.

Neighbours objected to the plan change,

citing lossofviews, trafficdanger,

wastewaterand noise concerns.

They say abiggercomplex would be out of

kilter in the ruralBenvironment.

DairyfarmerDavidGeddes wasagainst the

planchange,saying the accommodation

would be better in Ashburtontown, where

there were the roads andservicestodeal

increased traffic and people.

He saidallowingthe plan change would be

like allowingafoodprocessing plant to be

built in downtown Tancred Street.

Farmers Cornerstarted life in town, butthe

business grew and visiting tourist buses

cloggedthe streets around Baring Square.It

moved to Longbeach Road.

Thelawyer for the company, Pru Steven,

said the districtplan did not protect views

but the applicants were willingtolimitthe

Ted Wood saidhecouldnot seehow the

Farmers Corner plan change would

contribute to the district’s economyas

claimed. Taiwanese visitors arrived by bus

and shopped on siteand most of whatthey

bought was not locally­made.

The most affected neighbours areSteve

AshburtonDistrict Council

has agreed to carry over

millions of unspent funds

from the 2019/20 yearinto the

its part in delaying some

Ashburton social worker and

trained hard for six months for

the Great Naseby Water Race,

but when the event was canned

three weeks ago because of covid­

to run it.

Shetook to the start line alone

on Friday at 8am and some 28

the finish line to complete the 100

Winter SportsCodes –AorakiSportsAwards

Ourwintersports codes have been busy with local competitions which

are now drawing to aconclusion. Unlike previous years, there isno

representativesportavailableinmost codes.

With this in mind, the Aoraki Sports Awards, which are normally a

highlight for our secondary school sporting codes, will not be taking

placebecause athletes have not had the opportunitytocompeteatthe

toplevel. This is areal shame forthose individuals and teams who have

achieved highly this year.

However, students who have gained New Zealand Honours will be

recognised,and College has students in this category.

Ateam Iwould like to acknowledge the feats ofisour Smallbore

Rifle Shooting team. For the last two years they have been national

champions and are highly placed to repeat their top ranking this year.

We have been blessed to have shooters of the calibreofShania Harrison-

Lee who is currently the top-ranked New Zealand female secondary

school shooter. This isateam which has competed outstandingly well

over anumber of years.

Once again, I have got around many of our sports teams and I am always

impressed with the demeanour and efforts of our competitors. Iwould

like to thank all those parents and supporters who have been involved

with our winter teams throughout this season. We can only offer the

huge number of teams across multiple codes because of the level of

communitysupportweenjoy.

Iwould also like to acknowledge our Sports Director, Darion Gray,for her

calm and efficientorganisation thatenables all our sports activities and,

especially this year,for managing the multiple changes.

College PropertyUpgrade

In termsofour new build,the MinistryofEducation has acknowledged

thatthis will occur in twostages. The first stage will be planning for1350

students and the second stage forapeak roll of 1600.

As part ofthe first stage build, key areas such as the Staffroom and the

Library will be built to accommodate the maximum number. Once the

positioning of the classroom blocks has been finalised we will sharethis

with our community.

StudentLibrarians and LibraryVolunteers

The Ashburton College Library, Te Whare Pukapuka Matauranga, has a

marvellous team of studentlibrariansand volunteers.

Anne Williams, Teacher Librarian and eDean, said that every year

approximately twenty five students volunteer to become student librarians

at Ashburton College. The students apply for the positions and train for a

term, before being assessed and

earning their ‘Librarian’ badge.

Their role involves working

at intervals or lunchtimes to

help the Librarians with tasks

such as issuing and returning

items, helping other students,

answering library-based queries,

shelving books and items and

helping with displays.

MidCanterburyCombined Boys’First XV Rugby-Four NewCaps following Home Game

Final Home Game

College’s final home game of the UC Competition season was played last

Saturday, 05 September,onthe College grounds in superbweather.

Coach Shane Enrightreportedthattherewas agood hakaand alarge crowd

gathered along Belt Road to support the home team against the strong

St Bede’s College side. StBede’s started strongly, scoring within afew

minutes to lead 5-0, followedbyarepeattopush out to a10-0lead.

Afterthis,Collegeentered the game and from agood scrum allowedroom

to attack on the blindside with stand-out Captain Michael Hennings

setting up Isi Ula for atry, with new half-back for the rest of the season,

Charlie Brown, making the conversion to bring the scoreto7-15.

Aspell of ‘ball-watching’cost the team however, allowing St Bede’s simple

tries from kick-offs to push away in the last fifteen minutes of the first half.

Also in the first half, the team lost hard-running and hard-hitting second

five-eight Mark Gabriel to aknee injury. Shane said ‘this wasareal shame’

as Mark had come into good form late in the season. George Penjueli also

collected a‘good smack’onthe left eye, having toleave the field toget it

attended to,but returning to finish off well.

Some good rugby was played inthe second half and an outstanding try

of the day, using the draw and pass, byMichael Hennings. Michael also

just missed asecond tryafter abreakaway 40 metre run, but wascut down

about 5metres out.

Richie Fuluasou, who had returned from injuryonly acouple of weeks ago,

collected ahuge hit and was knocked out, and given the Blue Card from

referee, bringing his season to the end. Welook forward tohim coming

back next season to work to be areal leader of the 2021 forwardpack.

Year 11 Fononga Lisala, also returning from aknee injury, hit abrilliantgap

from agreat pass and headed over the tryline.

The team worked hard for the last eight minutes trying to score the Bonus

Tryfor aBonus Pointwhich would have allowedthe team to draw level with

Roncalli Collegeonthe points table.However,despitecrossing the line,the

ball had been knocked on and the trywas notallowed.

Three tries and nineteen points against aTop 4Team in the competition,

contained much thatwas positive, despiteStBede’s scoreof62points.

Theinjured players from this weekend have to nowjoin the team’s walking

wounded list of SamRee,AlexRoderick,AlexBarnabyand BenMiddleton.

This award was earned byIsi Ula, on Saturday.

The team now heads into the last week of the season this week, with two

training runs Tuesday and Thursday, and then on the road early Friday

morning to Blenheim to play Marlborough Boys’High School for the final

game of this season.

It is planned to fill the bench with some of the Under 16 players again

for next weekend and many thanks were given to Millar Newlands,

Devon Flannery and Pedro Collins for their great attitudes and for helping

outthis past weekend.

Appreciation

Abig thank is also given toMOTUS Physiotherapy, Abi and Bridget, for

their work over the season in keeping the boys on the paddock where

possible,and also forgetting them back onto the field.

Mid CanterburyCombinedSchools’Rugby -Four NewCaps

Thecriteriafor gaining acap requires players to have playedatleasttwelve

games in one season, or at least fifteen over twoseasons,for the UC 1st XV

side.

Mid CanterburyConnections with UC Competition andStBede’sCollege

It was interesting to note awrite-up by St Bede’s in which their Mid

Canterbury rugby connections were outlined. This reads like a‘did-youknow’:

St Bede’s has had four students who went onto become Bishop of the

Christchurch Diocese,two of whom came from Ashburtontobeboarders at

the College: Bishop Basil Meeking and Bishop John Cunneen.

Swimming Champions were –

St Bede’s rugby has also been the beneficiary through families such as the

Hanhams, Connells, Hanrahans, McCloys, Gormans, McCraes, O’Sullivans,

Richards,Kilworths and Catherwoods,toname but afew.

Of the two schools it was, however, Ashburton College that first had

astudent selected into the New Zealand Schools’ Rugby team, being

Ken Rogers in 1979. St Bede’s had to wait foranother twoyears beforeittoo

could claim the same honour, and that was due to aboy from Ashburton.

Dean Kilworth was aboarder at St Bede’s when selected into the New

Zealand Schools’team in 1981. Dean wasdescribed as astrong left-winger

with adevastating side step, and capable of outstanding individual tries

while also being agoalkicker. Dean went on to score28tries in twoseasons

in the St Bede’s 1st XV.

Dean’s younger brother, Scott, was also a notable athlete and midfielder

who was selected into the New Zealand Under 17 team in 1982 and was a

key partofthe champion StBede’s 1st XVs of thatera.

Andyet athirdKilworthbrother,Jason, was to follow and playhis wayinto

national age grade rugbyteamswhilst at St Bede’s.In1985 Jason wasone of

three St Bede’s students who made the South Island Under 16 team to play

the North Island Under 16 team in the annual fixture, and was then one of

the two‘Bedeans’tobeselected inthe New Zealand Under 16 squad that

year.The following year (1986) Jason alone made the New Zealand Under

17 team thattoured Australia.

St Bede’s said thatthey remain very proud of its MidCanterburyBedeans.

AshburtonCollege’sHistoryinthe UC RugbyCompetition

Founded in 1965, Ashburton College competed in the first Press Cup

competition (as it wasthen known) playing through until 2001, when poor

results and high costs forced their withdrawal from this competition. The

team re-entered the competition in 2011.

TopYear

In 2013 theywon eightgames on course to ahistory-breaking season,

including the South Island Co-ed school title and third place at the

Co-edNational Championship.

2020

Also notable isthat, in 2020, the strong St Bede’s and Mid Canterbury

connection has been maintained via the presenceofSt Bede’s Head Coach

Dwayne Prendergast (ex-Ashburton), with his playing and coaching record

there.

Roses should be pruned by now or you risk late and disappointingblooms.

Fine spring days ahead

Vegetables

Take advantage of fine spring days

to sow vegetables.

Frequent hoeing and loosening of

surface soil helps all crops, letting air

and warmth into the upper layers of

the soil.

Use spring cabbages soon, or they

will run to seed. Cut the largest heads

first. Once ahead has been cut, the

plant should be removed and

composted, or it will continue to

draw nutrients from the soil.

Sow lettuce regularly from now on,

afew at atime, to keep aregular

supply. The best lettuce plants are

those sown where they are to mature.

Thin the seedlings so those left to

mature will produce ahighly

developed root system. Liquid

manure helps give good leaves.

Rhubarb will be starting to sprout,

but leave the early stalks to mature

and water the bed well in dry

weather.

Watch any early potatoes pushing

through the surface in areas where

frosts might still occur. Cover with

pea straw or hoe up soil over them

and, when they become strong,

mound them up. Main­crop potatoes

can be sown in districts that usually

experience dry summers.

Thin autumn­sown onions and

weed the bed when soil conditions

allow.

Flowers

Plant pansies and violas. Regularly

remove faded flowers and seed pods

to prolong the flowering displays, a

practice also invaluable with other

annuals and perennials, such as

dahlias, sweet peas, asters, roses and

calendulas.

Dahlias left in the soil during

winter can be lifted and divided for

replanting. Lift clumps of tubers with

afork and, with asharp knife, remove

individual tubers, ensuring each has

alarge piece of stem with asturdy

growth bud attached. Before

replanting, add plenty of compost or

well­rotted stable manure. Add lime,

at the rate of 100g per sq m, and

replant tubers with the bud about

5cm below the surface.

Plants suitable for damp spots in

the garden include astilbe, globe

flower (Trollius), Himalayan blue

poppy (Meconopsis), perennial

phlox, primulas, japonica, leopard’s

bane (Doronicum), Anemone

japonica, lily of the valley, Solomon’s

seal, hellebores and penstemons.

Roses should have been pruned by

now. If not, this should be done as

soon as possible or flowering will be

late and blooms disappointing.

When bulbs grown in pots for

indoor or patio displays have

finished their flowering, plant them

in acorner of the garden to

recuperate.

It will probably take ayear or two

before they will flower properly

again.

Fruit

The season for planting tomatoes

under glass is almost here. Unless

you have aheated glasshouse or a

sunny conservatory that stays warm

overnight, do not be in ahurry to put

in tomatoes. They are asubtropical

plant from lowland South America,

cultivated for at least 1500 years.

Modern tomatoes come in two

types: bush (determinate) and

indeterminate. Determinate

varieties are bred to grow to a

compact height, usually about 1.5m.

They stop growing when fruit sets on

the terminal or top bud, ripen all

their crop at or near the same time,

then die.

Indeterminate tomatoes are vines

that continue growing throughout the

season and include many of the

small­fruited varieties.

If buying plants, look for sturdy

specimens about as tall as they are

broad and with mid­ to dark­green

leaves.

If tomatoes are grown in the

ground, fresh soil or tomato mix is

needed every year, so growing them

in pots or heavy black plastic bags is

more economical. Set plants about

1m apart and water sparingly until

they are well­established.

Bee ahero during bee aware month

New Zealand’s beekeepers are

calling on Kiwis to ‘Bee a

Hero’ during September, as

the country celebrates Bee

Aware Month.

Bee Aware Month is an

annual educational campaign

organised by Apiculture New

Zealand and supported by bee

lovers across New Zealand.

Apiculture New Zealand chief

executive officer Karin Kos

said there are two key goals of

the campaign.

“We want to lift awareness of

the critical importance of bees

to New Zealand’s

environment, food chain and

economy, and teach Kiwis

some simple actions that

everyone can take to improve

bee health.”

Ms Kos says green­fingered

Kiwis can help bees by

growing bee­friendly plants in

their gardens, while nongardeners

can also do their bit.

“Mowing your lawns less

often is one really simple

thing that can make a

difference for bees. Weeds

like clover and dandelions are great food for bees.”

Ms Kos also encouraged Kiwis to support everyday

bee heroes: the nations beekeepers.

“Since the advent of varroa, beekeepers’ have

become essential to the survival of honey bees. Our

beekeepers work hard to care for and protect our bees.

Buying local honey, especially some of our beautiful

native varieties like rewarewa or kamahi, or other bee

Avoid garden sprays, select bee­friendly products or follow spray safe rules.

products is agreat way to back our beekeepers and

their bees,” she said. Another important thing

everyone can do is to take care with garden sprays. She

recommended avoiding garden sprays, selecting beefriendly

products or following the spray safe rules.

“Spray only in the early morning and evening when

bees are less active; never spray when flowers are in

bloom and always read instructions carefully before

The Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) is a

key supporter of Bee Aware Month. EPA sets the rules

around when, how and where insecticides can be used.

EPA Hazardous Substances and New Organisms

Group acting­general manager Clark Ehlers said

insecticides play an important role in food production,

but some are harmful to pollinators, such as moths,

birds and bees. ‘‘Bee Aware Month is agreat time for

people to ensure they’re following label instructions

when using chemicals, or using alternative pest

control methods, to keep our pollinators safe.’’

Throughout Bee Aware Month, Apiculture New

Zealand and its supporters and sponsors will be

sharing bee facts, running competitions and, where

possible, organising community events.

Newly published author Pauline Roberts.

Pauline’s book on

grief tribute to son

MICK.JENSEN

@ashburtoncourier.co.nz

Lake Hood resident Pauline

Roberts has penned her first

published book. It’s atributeto

her late son andaguide to help

others find joy in their life aftera

loss.

Called Whole Hearted Grief,

the book is acandid reflection of

her own journey and painful loss,

but also offers advice and helpful

practices to come outthe other

side.

Theauthor, who has a

background as agrief and loss

counsellor, is now acoach and

mentor, and has always enjoyed

writing.

‘‘Writing andpaintingare my

happy places.

‘‘I write poetry,fiction and

keep journalsand I’ve always

wanted to have abook

published.’’

Shewas encouraged on the

book journey by fellow Ashburton

Writers Groupmember Stacey

Broadbent andthe inspiration for

her book is herson’s tragic death

three years ago.

Thebook was written full time

in just threemonths and hasbeen

aform of therapy for Pauline.

Thewhite heron on thefront

cover is from one of her own

paintings and asymbol she

believes bringsher closer to the

spirit world.

‘‘Thereisnoroad map to grief,

but grief will walk beside you

while you follow yourself home,

in your own time and in your own

way,’’ saidPauline.

Herlateson Adam was

diagnosed with Huntington’s

disease at aged 14, but had been

full of the joys of life andliving

happily in Christchurch when he

died in ahorrific burn accident in

2017.

He was just 29 and his death

left abig void in Pauline’s life,

andinthe lives of otherswho

knew him.

‘‘Everyone suffers grief in their

life andgetting through it canbe

very tough.

‘‘I didn’t want to just tell

another tragic story. My aim with

thebook is to share my

experiences and emotions in a

way that reminds peoplethat

there is joy still to come in life

after loss.’’

Feedback from those who have

read thebook has been very

positive andthe first print run

has sold out.

Pauline said hermother and

sister had both lost sons, one had

been 18 and theother 24.

‘‘Mum told told me that if she

had the read the book 40 years

agoitwouldhavehelped her deal

betterwiththe lossofher son.’’

Grief was unstoppable and

moving through it took time and

effort.

Heradvice to others is take one

small step at atime ‘‘in the

direction of reclaiming joy’’.

Wholehearted Grief by Pauline

Roberts is available throughthe

author’sFacebook page.

Gardeners could bloom in covid

LINDA.CLARKE

@ashburtoncourier.co.nz

Growing your own vegetables could follow

bakingand sewing as anew skill in covid

times.

Ashburton HorticulturalSociety

president Joy Jaine says growingflowers

and vegetables is therapy for the souland

good for the wallet.

And aspin­off of more gardeners could

bring more people to the horticultural

society’s monthly meetings, where there is

awealth of experiencenew growers can

tap into.

Member numbers need aboost with just

14 mostly retired folk attending meetings

of the society, which has been around for

about 130 years.

Joy said the lackofpeople powermeant

the society wouldnot run its annual

gardencompetition in the new year. The

group had hoped that its new competition

formatlast year, whenhundreds of homeownersreceived

certificates for their

good work, would attract afew more

members. But not so.

‘‘It’s abig job for asmall number of

people.’’

Joy has enjoyed veges and flowers from

her own garden for all her life. The

Christchurch nursemarried Mid

Canterbury farmer JeffreyJaine in 1963

and moved to Carew. Jeffrey used to pick

up his mother and travel the long shingle

road that was Maronan Road to attend

horticultural society meetings.

Joy camefrom afamily of gardeners and

grew up when mosthouseholdsgrew their

own veges. It was apassionshared by the

coupleuntil Jeffrey’s death in 2016.

Joy Jaine still enjoys growing her ownvegetables.

Joy still puts in potatoesand grows other

veges at her Tinwaldhome, which

featuresmature shrubs, trees and potted

containers of colourful flowers.

The horticultural society runs

competitions thatare part of its monthly

meetings, and while it’s not compulsoryto

enter, there’s agood rivalry for who has

grown the best veges and bloomsand Joy

has some silverware.

‘‘You don’t have to enter, you can just

come along and have asocial time.’’

She says it doesn’t cost alot to grow

broccoli, cabbage or courgettesand

starter packs could be bought cheaply

from The Warehouse.

The club also has tripstogardens of

interestto keeps its members inspired.

Survey feedback

helps council plan

We are now approaching the end

of whatisavery important

opportunity to influencethe

futureofour districtand Iwant to

encourage as many peopleas

possible to get in and make their

voice countwhilethey can.

The council’s Our Place, Our

Plan survey will close next

Friday, September 18. Ashort

onlinesurvey asksyou what you

thinkismost important for our

district, withthe answersbeing

used to help the council put

together its 2021­31 Long Term

Plan.

Through the Long TermPlan,

the council decides what projects

and activities it willfund and how

they willbefunded,sobeingable

to put your ideas and priorities

forward before the plan is even

drafted is afantastic opportunity.

The surveybuilds uponwhat

our community told us was

important threeyears ago and

asks if you think these priorities

are still as important,orifyou

think thereare other things the

council shouldfocus on.

In 2018, those top priorities

were roading, community safety,

environment, towncentre

development, second bridge,

business development,EA

Networks Centre development

and new entertainmentcentres.

Since that time, some of these

projects and activities have been

actioned or progressed such as

the currently under way

Ashburton CBD revitalisation,

increasedeffortonbusiness

developmentwith the

appointment of our economic

developmentmanager,

supporting the Safer

Communities Programme,

upgrading the towncentre CCTV

camerasand the work on the

business case for the second

urban bridge.

Three years is alsoalotoftime

for our district’s needs to change

and for people to reassesswhat

they thinkismost important for

our future.

When we first conducted this

survey for the 2018­28Long Term

Plan, we received over2500

responses over the course of

three surveys.

It would be fantastic to reach

this number again or even exceed

it! The more people who tell us

what theythink,the more

informationcouncil will havein

front of it to helpinform its

decisions.

Thank you to those who have

alreadycompleted the survey and

shared their ideas. Why not ask

your neighbours, family and

friends to do the survey too?

You can complete the survey at

itsourplace.com until 5pm,

September 18.

An opportunity to influencethe

direction of our district like this

doesn’tcome around everyday.

Be countedand help shape our

future.

Thecaravan is parked up at

ruralevents nationwide to

encourage farmers to pop in for

acheck.

It was purchased, refitted and

backed with support of Feilding

couple Dean and Cushla

Williamson, and is expected in

the long­term to be placed

under ownership of the

Saleyards Silhouette Charitable

Trust.

‘‘We know thatmanyfarmers

often put other priorities ahead

of regular health checks ... many

farmers have limited accessto

health services and many face

social isolation.’’

There is also the annual

Farming Family Day at the

Races events, his work as

facilitator, workplace

engagements and an online

ruralforum every Thursday

night, called Whatever with

Wiggi.

The online Zoom sessions

started during the nationwide

Covid­19 lockdownasaway to

connectwith other farmers.

In early March Craig, 52, had a

whiteboard and diary full of

engagements through until late­

July. Then the country went into

lockdown.

‘‘For thefirst time in my life,I

had nowhere (I had to be). AndI

thought, Iwon’t be the only

one.’’

ThefirstZoom session 15

people turned up, through word

of mouth.

‘‘It has morphedintoareal

support network, and acurrent

affairs network,’’ he said.

Therehave been guest

speakers: the first was Sir David

Fagan, but there has been

Hamish Marr, politicians

including David Bennett and

Barbara Kuriger, and Damien

O’Connor has fronted twice, the

latest to speak about freshwater

policy and 90 people logged in.

They have covered arange of

working with horses agreat

stress reliever.

topics including migrant

workers, road user taxes,

sharemilking issues, and

glyphosate use andall under

Chatham House Rules to allow

free discussion.

Some of thediscussion topics

have made it intomainstream

media and to Parliament.

‘‘Whatever with Wiggi is just a

facilitator to let people have

voice,’’ Craig said. ‘‘It’s opened

lines of communication and lets

people know what’s going on.’’

Post lockdownthe groupis

still going strong andhas grown

to more than 710 group

members.

Not everyone is on at the same

time, but there is talk about

adding asecond weeklysession.

Members are stretched from

Kerikeri to Invercargill and

over arange of industries, from

farmers to decision­makers and

media.

Craig said his activities would

not be possible without the

support of wife, Annabelle.

He grew up on asheep and

beef farm in Raetihi, near Mt

Ruapehu in the North Island.

Hisgrandparents were

farmers, andhis parents Neil

and Jenibought aneigbouring

property before taking over the

family farm. Neil died youngat

aged 53 and Craig eventually

bought some of his mother’s

share in the 303 hectare

property.

He met Annabelle on the

rodeo circuit –she is a

competitive barrel racer andhe

was acommentator–and while

they lived together in the North

Island for awhile, they

eventually made the decision to

move south.

It was Annabelle’shome

district; her parents were at the

Rakaia Gorge.

They both liked Methven and

bought a30hectare property on

Methven Dromore Road, north

of Ashburton, in 2007.

On the farm theyhave quite a

few horses used forclerking or

barrel racing. Their daughters

Genevieve, 8, andLilly, 5, also

have ponies.

They farm yearling cattle and

grow pak choy for seed.

“It works. Istill feel like I’m a

little bit of afarmer,” he said.

Craig’s work, whether

commentating rodeo,jet

sprinting or agricultural events

hasincluded worknationwide

as well as overseas in Canada

and Australia so there was alot

of travel –upto85flights ayear

–soaMidCanterbury based was

ideal.

Not only isitagreat place for

their familybut Annabelle’s

parents live at Staveley, along

the foothills, and Craig’s

mother,Jeni, has moved to

Ashburton.

Four years agoCraig was

approached by horse trainers

Ricky andJudyMay to clerk the

course at Methven races. The

work has grown to doing 40­plus

days of clerking with extra race

meets at Addington, Ashburton

and Rangiora.

Andheloves it.

‘‘It’s really good fun. Being on

ahorse is my stress relief,” he

said.

Another is whipping up

dishes in the kitchen, including

anything he catches or hunts.

Ashburton’s Murney family were the first people to land at Christchurch Hospital’s new

rooftop helipad last week, though the circumstances were very different from the last time

they made the journey. Helipad supporter Willie Murney bid at afundraising auction for the

right to be the first user. The family have been big supporters since Willie’s mum Kate Murney

was airlifted to Christchurch in December 2013 critically ill with acute septicemia. The Maia

Health Foundation raised $2 million for the helipad project.
