Property

market

surges

By SHELLEY TOPP

Waimakariri’s bustling

housing market since the

Covid­19 level 4lockdown

produced arecord median

house price of $515,000 in

August.

Bayleys Rangiora manager

Ross Ditmer says the record

median price in the district

reflects the shortage of

listings, the increase in the

number of properties sold for

more than $1 million, and the

high number of people keen to

buy turning up at open homes.

‘‘It is areally buoyant

market, but the shortage of

listings is the key point. People

are fighting over properties.’’

The record price was

included in sales figures

released by the Real Estate

Institute of New Zealand

(Reinz) last week, which show

a13per cent increase in

median house prices in

Canterbury (from $440,000 last

year to $497,000 this year) and

a16.4 per cent increase in

median house prices

nationwide last month.

The median house price is

the sale price in the middle of

alist of property sales ranked

from the highest price to the

lowest price during aset

period.

The housing market’s

recovery during the last few

months after lockdown has

surpassed many predictions.

Big numbers are being

reported at open homes, and

some buyers are receiving

multiple offers, at times well

above asking price.

Reinz chief executive Bindi

Norwell said in recent weeks

the organisation had heard

reports around the country

of vendors achieving good

prices for the sale of their

homes.

‘‘But we would never have

guessed that eight regions and

17 districts/cities across the

country would see record

median prices just four

months after the entire

country was in lockdown.

‘‘The combination of low

interest rates, the removal of

loan­to­value ratios, the lack of

listings, people’s aspiration to

have more space/a bigger

backyard, acatch­up post

lockdown, and first­time

buyers’ desire to get into the

market, have all contributed to

the uplift in prices we have

seen during the last few

months.

‘‘Unless we see more listings

come to the market before

Christmas, we may start to see

additional pressure on house

prices and affordability,’’ she

says.

Covid curtails eventscalendar

By ROBYN BRISTOW

NorthCanterbury events

continuetobeextinguishedor

curtailed amid the uncertainty

of Covid­19.

The Waiau Fireworks

display in November is the

latest casualty.

The much­anticipated

community eventhas been

snuffed out because of the

financial riskthat could leave

the organising committee in a

perilousstate if it had to be

cancelledatthe last minute

due to Covid­19.

The decision follows several

meetings and long discussions

for the committee that works

through the yeartoraise funds

and organise the fireworks

extravaganza.

Meanwhile, the bounce has

beentaken out of theKaikoura

Hop afterthe Government’s

announcement on Monday that

level 2willremain until at least

Monday in areas outside

Auckland.

But the Hopisstill going

ahead as plannedin‘‘level 2

style’’ over the next few days,

until Sunday, September 20.

The organisers saythey are

disappointed but not

surprised. They intend to cater

for all those on their way, in

town already and ready to

party.Therewill still be an

opportunity for all registered

vehicles to join the level­2­style

event.

‘‘There will be no car show

on Saturday at the Racecourse,

no Rock and Roll dance on

Saturday night, and no

burnouts on Sunday. No mass

gatherings,’’ say the organisers.

But there willbeapop­up

shop for all Hop merchandise

at the memorialhall on

Saturday, sponsors’ stallsand a

few cool markets.

As seen by the weekend

cancellationofthe Whale Run,

people stillwant to visit

Kaikoura, so manyvisitors are

still expectedtovisit the town,

alongwith some fabulous

vehicles.

Meanwhile, Rock‘n’Wheels

organisers in Amberleyare

forging on withplansfor its

event, whichwas postponed

from Father’s Day.Itisnow

The Rangiora High School 1st

XV rugby team has made it into

the top four of the UC

Championship, and will play

Christchurch Boys’ High School

(CBHS) in the semi­final on

Saturday.

Awin over the Lincoln

Combined 1st XV last Saturday

by 70­7 propelled Rangiora into

fourth, while CBHS topped the

standings.

Rangiora will be keen to have

achance to reverse the result

from its match against CBHS a

fortnight ago. Adraw, or victory,

slipped from Rangiora’s grasp in

the dying seconds.

Coach Craig Mullan says the

side displays good values and a

level of determination which

makes the team easy to coach.

The semi­final will be played

at CBHS without spectators.

Expansion under way ... Rangiora’s McAlpines Mitre 10 Mega is expanding its store.

Expansion has eye to future

Rangiora’s McAlpines Mitre 10

Mega is expanding its premises

to future­proof the business for

anticipated population growth

in North Canterbury.

The locally owned and run

home improvement, hardware,

and garden centre store in

Southbrook Road has been

trading in North Canterbury for

45 years.

The business is apopular

retailer and abig supporter of

the community, sponsoring

many causes. It is also one of

North Canterbury’s biggest

employers.

Plans for the extension began

in 2017, chief executive Peter

Crighton says.

‘‘It was apparent that there

would be asignificant

population increase in the

district over the next 20 years

and it was considered that the

current store size, with

subsequent limitations on the

range that could be offered, had

little capacity to accommodate

for this future growth.

‘‘The new space will give us

the opportunity to better

showcase our products, provide

awider range of goods for our

customers, and an improved

shopping experience for them.

‘‘We are really excited about

the project.’’

The initial builders’ supply

store at Southbrook was built in

1970, with membership of Mitre

10 (NZ) Ltd undertaken in 1974.

The store has traded as aMitre

10 franchise since then.

An outdoor garden centre was

established in 1988, and adrivethrough

facility was added in

1993. During 2007­08, the

Southbrook Mitre 10 Mega was

developed to replace the Mitre

10 Home and Trade store (as it

was then known) and the new

facility opened in September

2008, with abig investment

made last year to roof part of

the garden centre.

The new extension will

provide 35 per cent more retail

space and 35 per cent more

space for the drive­through

trade outlet. Covid­19

restrictions have delayed

progress on the extension,

originally scheduled for

completion next month.

The trade section will open in

late October but the added

retail section is now scheduled

to open in February.

Clean-up help sought

Okuku’sFoothillsHoney

owners, brother and sister

Jamesand Laura Malcolm,

are askingmembers of the

community to join their

annual Ashley River Clean

Up.

‘‘TheAshley River has a

reputation for beautifulpicnic

and swimming spots, as well

as walking trails,’’ Laura says.

‘‘But, unfortunately,for others

it is better known as a

dumping ground.

‘‘It is heartbreaking to see

our beautiful rivers that we all

love to enjoy being used this

way.’’

Last year, 800kg of rubbish,

including 33 tyres, was

collected duringthe clean­up.

The Foothills Honey team

spends hours tendinghives

alongthe riverbeds and

constantly see dumped

rubbish.

‘‘Forus, thisisour

backyard,’’James says.‘‘We

want to keep thesecherished

spotsasnatural and as

respectedaspossible.’’

This year’s clean­up is

planned for Sunday,

September 27, from1.30pm to

Our streets need to be

safe for older people

By JOANNE GUMBRELL, chairwomanof the

WaimakaririAge­friendly Advisory Group

We allwalk along the streetsinour

towns. At our August Waimakariri Agefriendly

AdvisoryGroupmeeting, Mike

fromthe Policyand StrategyUnitatthe

Waimakariri DistrictCounciltalked to

us about street signage andbylaws.

He described thecare taken to get

thisright. Thereisinformation on the

council website.

We made comment aboutcourtesy

crossings, theones we see in various

places aroundour towns, witharaised

areaand sometimes aprotected

stopping place in themiddle of the

road.

The RoadCode says the only

crossings where driversmuststop for

pedestriansare zebra crossings. On

courtesy crossings, drivers haverightof

way.

We have written to the council

suggesting thatsignage be putonthe

footpath stating thatdrivers have right

of way.

We also appreciate that some drivers

do stop outofkindness, but it is not the

law.

The one at theroundaboutnear the

cornerofAshley andBlackett streetsin

Rangiora is one to look outfor.

Ihear comments about signsoutside

shops in ourtowns,too, as well as

stands of goods.

These add colour and cheerfulnessto

the streets, but arenot goodfor

pedestrians, particularlyfor people

who finditdifficulttoget around.

Twenty percent of peoplein

Waimakaririare agedover 65 and this

is predicted to increase.

Thatwill bringagreaterneed for

hazard­freepavements, with more

mobility scooters, walking frames and

sticks. Ourstreetsneed to be safefor

them.

The council is resisting the

introductionofe­scooters,for which I

breatheasighofrelief.

Did youknow thataswell as the

Covid­19 tracing app on cellphones, the

council hasa“Snap,Send, Solve”one

which is useful if you comeacross

anythingyou would likethe council to

knowabout?

How to do thisisonthe council website.

Ilive in thecountryand canuse this

to let themknow aboutpotholes on the

road.

Littering is out of control

Dear Editor,

As an early­morning cyclist around

the Rangiora district, Ican’t help but

notice the ever­increasing deposits of

litter lining our streets, with cans,

bottles and fast­food wrappings and

containers.

Ithink we know alot of this is

thrown out from low slung, noisy

vehicles driven by anti­social braindead

hoods, but also some others.

My biggest concern is the lack of

pride by alarge proportion of

Rangiora residents, who simply don’t

notice, don’t want to notice, are shortsighted,

or just too plain lazy to pick

up litter deposited near or outside

their home.

Yesterday, Inoticed achap on High

Street line trimming his grass berm,

and finding atin can in the grass. He

slung it into the gutter to join the glass

bottle already there.

Ipick up alot of litter as Icycle, but

to assist home owners with failing

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

eyesight, Ioften deposit bottles and

cans near their letterbox. Don’t thank

me, I’m happy to do this.

The other disappointment is the

difficulty of some owners knowing

what is rubbish, and what is

recyclable.

From May to July, the Waimakariri

District Council had to send 200

truckloads of recycling to the dump,

costing ratepayers $122,700, because

homeowners were too darned lazy to

sort their waste correctly.

Best to be beware. The council may

be checking your bins to ensure you

are recycling correctly, or you may be

left with afull bin.

Please start taking pride in

Rangiora, and in particular, your area,

Yours,

John Carter

‘Iamanything but complacent’

PrimeMinisterJacindaArdern talks to Mike Houlahan

about her threeyears in office, and stressesthather

party willbefighting for every single vote.

On average, most governments

canexpecttodeal with one major

crisis aterm.

WhenJacinda Ardern became

primeminister three years ago,

one of her first challenges was

dealingwith the discoveryofthe

cattle disease Mycoplasma bovis.

Arollingmaul of disasters has

followed,from the March 15

terror attacktothe eruption of

Whakaari/White Island, and now

the ongoing battleagainstCovid­

19.

‘‘You can’t reallyprepare for

thatrange of challenges, but in

someways you can,’’ she says.

‘‘One of the thingsthat we were

challenged on, priortohaving

these laterevents,was ourquite

aggressive focus on adheringto

the Budgetresponsibility rules

and getting our debtdown, and I

stand by that.

‘‘That has meantthat we have

beeninabetter position than

mosteconomies we compare

ourselves to goinginto the

pandemic, and it has given us the

abilitytomake sure we are

investing in people, looking after

their welfare and needs, and that

has put us in astrong position to

comeout the other sideafter the

rebuild.’’

As with everyelection,

economic management willbea

major point of debate,and in the

space of afew months Ms

Ardern’sGovernmenthas surged

LEADER INTERVIEW

from sound debtmanagement

principles to racking up

enormousloans to cover the cost

of the pandemic response.

Labour, likeall parties, will

likelyfind therepayment

requirements on thatdebt a

handbrakeonits spending

ambitions should it be in

government after the election.

Ms Ardernsaid Labour

believed in incrementalchange

and carriedthat slow but steady

philosophy overtodebt

repayment, so the deficit should

not be abarrier to second­term

initiatives.

‘‘There is adifference between

us and the Opposition, whichis

that we are willing to bring debt

down overalongerperiod of

time, but through investmentin

training and education and job

creation, as opposedtosetting

debt targets that will mean

austerity measures.

‘‘Our debt repayment planwas

set out in the Budgetand

demonstrates thattakingitover a

longerperiodoftime,with

careful management,meansthat

you wouldn’t have that level of

cuts at all.’’

Ms Ardern and Finance

Minister Grant Robertson have

been at the forefront of the

Government’s response to the

Covid­19 outbreak.

With soaring poll ratings,Ms

Ardern is able to run for reelection

as the frontrunner, but

she laughedwhen it was

suggested this was her election to

lose.

‘‘Iamanythingbut complacent.

‘‘Maybe Ihave been around

politics too long;maybeitisjust

in my nature, but Iamalways

inclined to anticipate what could

go wrong.

‘‘No­one predicted 2017 and I

have been around politics along

time: We should neverbe

complacentand we shouldwin

every single vote, not justright up

to the pollingdate but beyond.’’

From the moment apartyis

elected, the process of having to

maintain people’s support starts,

she says. ‘‘I think there is nothing

worse than politicians taking for

grantedthe support thatthey

have.’’

ELECTION 2020

‘Ihave no problem making decisions’

National leader Judith Collinstalks

to Mike Houlahanabout takingthe

reinsofthe party, and how she

hopes to revive its flagging fortunes.

LEADER INTERVIEW

Judith Collins may be new to the hot seat,

but there is little to suggest she is not

firmly in charge.

‘‘I haveenjoyed it because Ihave no

problem making decisions,’’ she says.

‘‘Ultimately, what Iknow our team

needs to haveinthe National Party, is for

all MPs and staff to know what the

decision is, theyneed to knowthat it is

the bestdecision that can be madeatthat

time, and then theyneed to get on and

implement thatdecision —and that

makes it alot easier for people.

‘‘One of the strengths that Ibring, apart

fromsome years of experiencein

opposition and government, but also in

the private sector, is that Idotrust my

own decision­making ability and Ican

instil confidence in people because Ican

makedecisions.’’

At the beginning of 2020,National was

led by SimonBridges, who,despite

polling low in terms of personal

popularity, had kept the party vote at a

level where it was arealistic contender

in thisyear’selection.

However, Covid­19 infected National’s

polling numbers, and aslump was

followed soon afterbyadumping of Mr

Bridges in favour of Todd Muller.

Ms Collins thentook over, with her

earliest policy announcements around

infrastructure —asubjectofintense

interest inthe SouthIsland.

She panned the government over its

‘‘shovel­ready’’ projectiniatitive.

‘‘They have failed to deliver on them.

Some of it has beenannounced, but a

whole lot of themhaven’tbeen.’’

Ms Collinsisequally dismissive of the

Government’s response to the

threatened closureofthe Tiwai Point

aluminium smelter.

‘‘So far we have seen nothingexcept

for something aboutaforced hydro

scheme which sounds mind­bogglingly

expensive and would putupthe price of

power by quitealot.

‘‘We are very much thinkingabout the

people down there and the situation,but

we are also very aware thatyou cannot

The Widest Music Variety

be held hostage by abig international

firm.’’

Policy announcements have been

scarce so far fromMsCollins —noreal

surprise given herunexpectedascent to

the leadership and the earliness in the

election campaign.

However, she did say that the series of

positionpapers whichNational released

whileled by Mr Bridges were avaluable

pieceofwork —they had beenremoved

from the party website but have since

been reinstated.

‘‘Obviously policies need to change

because of changing circumstances, but

discussion documents are stillrelevant.

We’restillairing the issues.’’

One policyMsCollins is adamant about

is her stance on Covid­19.

Judith Collins

... ‘‘Nobody

ever wonders

what Ithink, and

for some people

that is utterly

refreshing at the

moment.’’

PHOTO: GETTY IMAGES

‘‘Itisvery important that we havea

zerotolerance, and Ihave azero

tolerance towards Covid­19,’’ she said.

‘‘But it is also important thatwhere we

can bring people in who should behere,

thatwecan quarantinethem and have

confidenceinthat quarantine process.’’

Through her extensive careerasa

senior MP and cabinet minister, Ms

Collins has revelled in her no­nonsense

approach —sometimes to her detriment.

‘‘Nobodyever wonders what Ithink,

and for somepeople that is utterly

refreshing at the moment.

‘‘They are sick of beingtold,

patronised, and treated like they are

children, and Iwon’t patronise themor

treat them likechildren —Iwill tell

themstraight up how things are.’’

12 The North Canterbury News, September 17, 2020

Trace minerals need

to be bioavailable

If you haven’t done it already, now is the time to change to asuperior

form of trace minerals, writes Matt Cassineri.

Every year, Iaminvolved in discussions in which Iamasked: How can Iimprove

my herd’s health, fertility and or production figures?

Many farmers tend to stick with the same supplier, use the same solutions and

hope for better results. Others are tired

of swapping companies and achieving

the same or worse results.

So why is this?

The purpose of this article is to answer

this question.

It is all to do with the form of the trace

mineral.

Changing from one inorganic trace

mineral to another gains nothing.

Research has shown that inorganic

trace minerals, or sulphates, are

relatively poorly absorbed.

The diagram to the left shows the

mineral antagonists —that is, what

minerals interact with each other.

Potentially, 50 to 82% of inorganic

trace minerals can be excreted because

of the antagonistic effects of the

minerals.

Many years ago, trace minerals were

introduced into animal husbandry to

help avoid deficiencies, as the animals were unable to meet all their mineral

requirements from their diet.

Feeding trace minerals to only avoid disease is what is known today as

‘‘traditional’’ feeding.

Every year, as we invest in better

genetics, we see more efficient

animals performing much better.

This means their mineral

requirements change, so their

mineral programme also needs to

change to keep up.

Alltech’s Total Replacement

Technology (TRT) approach is to

feed minerals in the right form,

and to feed those trace elements

not only to minimise disease, but to

feed for performance.

Our unique, well proven,

organically bound minerals are

much more bio­available and have

helped many clients throughout

the country improve results with

fertility and animal health in general.

In particular, pay attention to selenium (Se),

copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn), as these have major roles

to play when we look at overall animal health and

fertility.

So, if you want to make adifference this season and

improve results, particularly as farmers head into peak

milk and mating season, please get in touch.

manager. Please contact him to discuss Alltech’s

cutting­edge mineral management programme.

Shortfall ... Ashortage of veterinarians is creating concern in the industry.

Border ruleslead

to squeezeonvets

By SALLY RAE

Border restrictions are affectingthe

availability of veterinarians.

Already on the long­term skills

shortage list, there is apotential

shortfall of about 200 to 220.

The figureisthe resultofaquick

survey of New ZealandVeterinary

Association members that showed

companion­animal vets werethe

greatest need, followed by mixedpractice,

large animal and then equine,

the NewZealand Veterinary

Association’s chief veterinary officer,

HelenBeattie, says.

The association is working with the

Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI)to

try to find asolutionand is waiting to

hear back from either MPI or the

Ministry of Business, Innovationand

Employment with the next steps, Dr

Beattie says.

Concerns are being heard‘‘right

across the profession’’.

Priorto‘‘highly specialist’’

veterinarians being added to

Immigration New Zealand’s website, on

the basis they might meetthe criteria for

short­termcritical workers, Massey

University is concerned that the longterm

effectwill be significant if

specialist veterinarians are not

available to provide training.

In the professionitself, it is difficultto

prioritise the gaps and the veterinary

associationsuggeststhat howevermany

couldbenegotiated to comeinto New

Zealand, distributionneedstobebased

on the ratio of the shortages.

Dr Beattie saysthe effect of not having

thosevets is significant for those left in

the profession.

Stress and the human welfare impact

of the shortage wasaprimary concern

forassociation, and that was highlighted

in the survey.

Therewas also the animal welfare

aspect.

Vets are key consultantsinanimal

health and welfare, providingasupport

networktofarmers.

It is not just animal health they

discuss on­farm. They also provide

emotional help, she says.

The professionisalso apassive

primary industries.

Dr Beattie saysshe does not believe

anyone is beingpurposely obstructive;

the association understands the

implications of the global pandemic.

MPI had been helpful and the associationwouldcontinue

to work withit.

Agriculture Minister Damien

O’Connorhas been toldthe shortage is a

legitimate need,while the association

alsounderstands the Government is

faced with making decisions for other

industries.

Training programmes are available in

other areasofthe agricultural industry,

but that is not possible in the veterinary

profession.

‘‘It’s not easy to repurpose airline

pilots into veterinarians in less than five

years,’’ she says.

Federated Farmers employment

spokesman ChrisLewis says the

veterinary shortfall contributesto

growing issuesfor the agricultural

industry, from ashortage of experienced

dairy staff, agricultural contractors and

shearers —all industries that rely

heavily on labourfrom overseas.

Federated Farmers believes those

workers present no greaterrisk ‘‘than

any other party crossing the border’’,

providedcorrect procedures are

followed.

‘‘These workers are all highlyaware

that any breach of visa requirements

wouldend their employment and

jeopardise any futurechance of

employment in New Zealand,’’hesays.

Immigration New Zealand has

previously said it understands the effect

border restrictionsare having on some

sectors, and the bar for exemptionsisset

hightohelp contain the disease and

protect the healthofpeoplealready in

ON NOW

The Covid­19 pandemic has failed to

quellthe enthusiasm of WekaPass

Railway volunteers.

They are tacklinganambitious

building project to aid in the maintenance

of therailway’s rollingstock.

It is one of the most significant

undertakings of the Weka Pass Railway

in recent decades, and willculminate in

a52­metrecarriage maintenance depot

and storage shed.

The shed, currently being built, will

make it easier to work on projects, as

well as providevaluable storage to

preserve the lovingly restored carriages.

The building will meanthe volunteer

carriage restoration teams will have a

specialised areainwhich to work.

It will also meanthe railway’s fleet of

50­foot carriages,guards vansand

service wagons will be able to be worked

on separately,freeing up space in the

main workshop, which is better suited

for themechanicalengineering team.

Asmall woodshopinthe main

workshopwill also be able to be

replacedbyamachine shop and

workbench, increasing the productivity

of both volunteer groups, who work

‘‘together but separately’’toachievethe

society’scommon goals.

Matthew Morison,the railway’s

marketing manager,says at present the

capacity of the heritage train is capped

at 113 passengers, with threecarriages

in action.

‘‘Themore carriages we can restore,

the more peoplecan experience the joys

of aheritagetrain ride, and the more the

local economy will benefit,’’ he says.

‘‘When people think of the Weka Pass

Railway, theymay just thinkofour 1909

steam engine, or maybe our heritage

diesels. However, they may spend most

of their visit riding in our equally

important 1930s carriages.’’

The Weka PassRailway has set up a

Givealittle campaign to helpfit­out the

shedwith awatersupply, drainage,

electrical supply, internal wiring,

lighting and fire detection.

Mr Morisonsays the soonerthe funds

can be raised for these vital parts of the

project, the sooneritcan be completed

—possibly in six to eight months.

The Destination Kaiapoi Collective is an

initiativeofthe Kaiapoi Promotions

Association (KPA)and Kaiapoi businesses

It was kickedoff by anew jingle

was commissionedbylocal developer

Jedd Pearce and is now beingplayed on

Christchurch radio stations.

KPA chairman MartinPinkhamsays the

collective signifies ‘‘anunprecedented

unityand strong branding theme’’ for

Kaiapoi.“Ithink the main thing is that it’s

just areallygreat example of how alocal

community like Kaiapoi bands together

and comes up with asolution that will

work for us.

“And the other thingisthat peoplehere

concept of branding our town around the

riverseems to have struck arealchord

Kaiapoi’s new cycle linkto

open in December.

The Transport Agency’snew

completed alongside the thirdlaningofthe

The Waimakariri District

Council is building acycle

connection fromthe bridge,

running along the western

Carnival plans proceed

Kaiapoi is pressing ahead with plans

The Kaiapoi Promotions

Association plans to hold the Kaiapoi

Christmas Carnival and Santa Parade

on Saturday, December 5, subject to

the region’s Covid­19 alert level status,

chairman Martin Pinkham says.

‘‘There is still some doubt that it can

be held. We would like to thank the

sponsors, suppliers, and participants

for continuing their support, and being

so flexible as we head to the major

event of the Kaiapoi social calendar.’’

Interest in the event has been

strong, with the Christchurch Santa

being first out of the blocks ahead of

New Brighton (December 12),

PROJECT BUSY

All Together Kaiapoiwas born out of the

town’s regeneration after the

earthquakes.

Createdin2013 as the You Me We Us

Kaiapoi Project, the initiative emerged

out of a‘‘community conversation cafe’’

to build unity as the town recoveredfrom

the quakes. Its focus has been on creating

community events.

Linda Dunbar has been with the

project since its inception, starting out as

amember of the Waimakariri District

Council’s community team and working

alongside Karen Lindsay­Lees to get the

project off the ground.

After it obtained its own funding,

Linda left her council role to focuson

being the project co­ordinator.

Loyal volunteers and supportersover

the last seven years have includedChris

Greengrass, Brent and Shirley Cairns,

Jackie Watson, Kath Adamsand Sarah

Green, along with Christine Watton,who

was afounding member.

Events initiated by the project include

the Kaiapoi River Carnival, the Kaiapoi

Fun Run, the Kaiapoi Spring Festival

and Kaiapoi’s own‘‘Amazing Race’’.

The project changedits name to All

TogetherKaiapoi earlier this year.

Renovations ... Careful renovations can make homes and workplaces more comfortable,

and warmer.

PHOTO: SUPPLIED

It’sagreat time to

tackle renovations

Renovations are all about creating modern, comfortable spaces, says Kerry

Walsh, the Hurunui District Council’s team leader for building and property.

We have all spentmore time at home this

year, so home renovations may be on our

minds.

It’s about creating modern,

comfortable spaces that make our place

of work and home more comfortable.

The Hurunui District Council is also

carrying out many renovations and

improvements to its own buildings for

similar reasons.

Stronger, warmer, more modern and

up­to­date facilities, with improved

accessibility, all make life easier.

Some examples of renovation

upgrades are:

Insulation

Addinginsulation to your home or

workplace enables heat generated

within the home (through wood burners,

heat pumps and so on), as well as that

collectedthrough solar gain (for

example, north facing windows) to stay

in the building for longer.Itwill ensure

amore constant temperaturewithout

fluctuations. Insulated buildings will

hold heat (or cool in summer) and will

not be affected by the weather as much.

Awell­insulated house on asunny day

with large north­facingwindows will

heat up during the day and not need

much, or any, heating in the evening.

Insulation can be in the form of wall,

ceiling and floor blanket or other solid

material,and this can be retrofitted

relativelyeasily, especially in the

ceiling and floor as these areas normally

have access space. Installing insulation

in the walls is alittle more difficult as

this can be done only if removing the

internal walllinings or exterior

cladding.

Blown­in wall insulation can also be

chosen.One thing to remember is that a

building consentisrequired for

placement of insulation in the walls, but

not in aceiling or timber floor.

Another option is to insulate your

windows by double glazing or using

heavyweight drapes.

Double­glazing is now fitted in most

modern homes and hasproven to be an

effective way of improving the comfort of

ahome. Windows can be replaced

without abuilding consent but should be

done by someone who knows how to

make the new windows weathertight.

Ventilation also plays akey part in a

warm home, including extractionofthe

cooking fumes or moist air from kitchens

and bathrooms.

The council is also upgrading many of

its social housing units for these

reasons, and to comply with Healthy

Homes standards. This has included

ceiling and floor insulation and

moisture barriers on the ground.

Accessibility

Renovating your building to make it

easier to enter, move around in, and

carry out normal activities is also of

great benefit.

This is not just aramp into the front

door or raising the ground level for more

level access. It’s also things such as tiled

showers with aflush walk in –these are

considerably better than ashower over

the bath, for example.

Older showers tendtobesmall, whereas

new showers are normally 1m by 1m or

larger.

Largerdoorways and corridors make

movement around the house easier. Even

changing the door hardware from knobs to

handles is an easy, effective upgrade.

Light switches accessible from thebed or

at the top or bottom of stairs add safety

benefits.Councilbuildings, including the

Waiau Hall and KowaiArchives, are going

through accessible toiletupgrades.

Structural upgrades

Most North Canterburyresidentsknow

the importance of havingastrong and safe

building, as they savelives and areuseable

after an earthquake or naturalhazard

event.

Many houses and commercial buildings

are not structurallysound as they are built

of materials such as unreinforced masonry

(the structuralframing is bricks).

Many privatecommercial building

ownersand councils are undertaking

strengthening at greatcost,sousers of

those buildings are safe. This ensures they

complywith the law, and fulfil

requirements fromtenants and insurers.

The council has two such projects under

way —the Kowai Archives and Waiau

Hall, and several otherbuildings that have

also beenrecently completed includethe

old Culverden Chambers buildingfacade.

Modernisation

Modernisation is oftenone of the main

drivers behind renovations.

This can include items suchasanew

kitchen, bathroom, open plan changes

(removingwalls) or creating moreoutdoor

flow.

Alot of this work is expensive but can

add realvalue to ahome or workplace,

both in monetary and user value.

bench tops, soft­closedrawers, accessible

pantries, and built in items such as coffee

or icemakers.

LED lighting, smart plugs, electric car

chargers,internetoutlets etc all are in

demand in 2020.

Abuilding consent is not required for a

kitchen or bathroom renovation unless

you intendtoinstallatiled shower. Please

ensure you use asuitablyqualified person

to carry out the work.

The council is also modernisingsome of

its own buildings, including some planned

audio­visual facilitiesinhalls, generator

connections and systems so council

meetings can be viewed online.

Extra features

Manyolder homes and business

buildingshavefew features —just abasic

box withakitchen, lounge, bedrooms and

bathrooms. More and morepeople are

wantingmore than this; home theatre

rooms, aspa/sauna,swimming pools,

decks, largergarages and home

workshops/sheds.

Someofthesedon’teven require a

building consent.

For example, a30square metre

lightweight shed or garage can be built,as

longasitis at least its own height off the

boundary or residential building.

But dwelling extensions, swimming

pools, the removal of load bearing walls

and decksover 1.5 metres from the ground

do require consents.

The toolate renovation!

If water is dripping through the ceiling

or the doors won’t shut,the fireisnot

working,orthe internal gutters have

failed, then arenovation may be forcedon

you.

Thesesorts of eventsmay create

unexpected costs that could have been

avoided if regular maintenance or

checking was carriedout. In general, most

buildingsinNew Zealand are not well

maintained.

Buildings require maintenance and

critical areasneed to be checked

regularly: internal gutters, critical

flashings,flat roofs, chimney flues,

woodburnerfire boxes, upper­level decks

and exposed critical structural junctions.

If you liveinaharsh environment such

as near the sea, environmental conditions

can cause deterioration more quickly.

If you havetreesorvegetation that

surrounds your property, you willalso

need to carry out more maintenance.

Maintenance in generaldoes not

require consentunlessthe elementhas

failed to lastfor the period it should have

—for example, aleakingwindow within 15

yearsofinstallation.

In summary,building renovationsare

needed, wanted and required. As time

goes by, more options become available.

If you haveany buildingrenovationrelated

questions, the building team at the

council will be willing to assist. Good luck

with your renovationsin2020.

The much­anticipatedRangioraservice

centre refurbishment is finally under way.

Work began last week on the $2.5 million

upgrade of the Waimakariri DistrictCouncil’s

main building in Rangiora, withseveral

council staff now workingfrom temporary

locations aroundthe Rangiora town centre.

During repairs, the publicwill still havefull

access to customer services.

The scope of the project has been

significantlyreduced from earlierplans,

whichhad a$4.3m budget, because of Covid­

19, with only the necessary repairs and

upgrades now being completed.

Earlier thisyear,the council received

information which suggested parts of the

upperfloor was susceptible to quake damage

because of the typeofflooring used during the

1990sbuilding extension.

The project will be completed in fourstages.

Contractors started by making aminor repair

to strengthenthe council chamberssostaff

can use it as temporary office space.

This work wasidentifiedatthe beginning of

July during apre­construction engineering

inspection and involvesinstallingabeam to

supportthe roof along the western wall.

The meshused in themezzanine floor was

not up to standard and the repair will involve

having the concrete floor strengthened, with

the application of acarbon fibre reinforced

polymeracross the whole surface.

This will performthe same functionasthe

mesh and help the floor maintain integrity

duringanearthquake. It willbring seismic

performance up to at least 67 percent of the

New BuildingStandard.

Other work includes an upgrade to the

heating and ventilation system,necessary

repairs, and new paint and carpet.

Several staffare being housed in leased

spaces. Two properties have been leased for

up to 12 monthsand one more permanently to

allow for planned growth.

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Abid to level the playing fieldfor

smallbuilding firms and give them

the power to get better deals on

building materials for theirclients

is coming to fruition.

The Combined Building

Suppliers (CBS) co­operative, born

out of frustration from losing jobsto

bigger players, has agrowing

membership of 350 firms and has

gone nationwide.

It was launched in Canterbury in

2018.One of the masterminds

behind the concept, CarlTaylor, a

locally basedowner of CarlTaylor

Homes, said the concept grewout

of constantlylosingprojects to the

‘‘bigger guys with betterbuying

power’’.

The small guy’sonly option was

labour costs, and when that

happened, there werenowinners,

Carl says.

It took several years of

negotiating red tape to become a

co­operative, but Carl, who is

chairman of CBS, is happy with the

benefitsfor its shareholders.

Supply partners can offer

members pricesthat, in many

cases, were previously available

only to the biggestplayers.

‘‘From generalmerchant

supplies, through to directdealson

plumbing,plasterboard, right

through to kitchen and other

appliances and fuel, we haveyour

residentialbuild covered.

‘‘We alsohave discounts available

on services —from equipment

hire to surveying, quantity

surveying, accounting and legal.’’

Each co­op member is required

to buy 1000 shares for $1000.

It’sacost members should get

backquickly, he says.

‘‘This is aone­off cost. CBS Co­op

is self­fundingthroughsupplier

rebates. Thismeans that you will

not have to pay ongoing annualfees

to get thebenefitofmembers.’’

Shareholders also receive a

profit distribution based on the

value of the business they do with

CBS suppliers.

‘‘Itisnot mandatory for co­op

members to be exclusive to our

suppliersinordering materials,

but,inessence, the moreyou

support the suppliers, the greater

the benefits you willreceive.”

The savingsand rebate available

fromthe two­year­old co­operative

are as simple as they sound.

To remain amember, shareholders

musttransact at leastonce

withaco­op suppliereach year.

CBS member transactionsrose

by morethan 200 percent in the

pastfinancial year.

Carlsays the co­op is making

solid progress and is intent on

growing membership and

improving communicationwith

suppliers, while selectively adding

new nationwide suppliers in

categories such as waste disposal.

‘‘Wewill onlyput in place

agreementswith new suppliers

where we are confident much

better pricing will be achieved.The

faster we grow, the more likely

suppliers will be prepared to agree

to betterterms.’’

Council explores

management of

coastal hazards

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Coastal hazards are under the spotlight in the

Hurunui District.

Meetings will be held with six coastal

communities to exchange information and

views on hazards.

Council chief executive Hamish Dobbie says

it will be achance for the council to share what

it learned about coastal hazards and to ask the

communities what they know, what they want to

know, and the approach they would like to take.

“A plan for the future can then begin.”

Mr Dobbie says some information has been

put together with consultants to help explore

potential scenarios.

‘‘What is important now is to work closely with

our coastal communities to find out their

concerns, needs and wishes.”

The evening meetings for invited residents

will take place at Amberley Beach, Leithfeld

Beach, Gore Bay, Motunau, and Claverley Flat/

Conway Flat.

“There is no knowledge like local knowledge,

when it comes to working through this puzzle of

coastal hazards,” Mr Dobbie says.

He says there is no one solution, but it is

important to look at the options. “At the moment

we are engaging with our communities on our

shared knowledge of coastal hazards, so we can

work out what to do next. It’s really important

every voice is heard.”

The council has the legal responsibility to

manage risks from natural hazards. It says

community input is crucial and it will work at

the pace of those who live on the coast. “There

is no hurry for this. We are working on amultigenerational

plan. We want to do this once and

do it right.”

After initial meetings, there will be follow­up

conversations with coastal communities.

Trust takes ‘whole

By DAVID HILL

Agroup of Waimakariri farmers hopes to

lead farminginto the next generation.

The Waimakariri NextGeneration

Farmers Trust hasreceived Ministry for

Primary Industries sustainablefood and

fibre futures funding for athree­year trial,

which trustee Sam Spencer­Bower says

will allow farm environmentplans to be

taken to the nextlevel.

The project will investigate and trial

environmental mitigation options through

a‘‘whole of farm’’ planningapproach.

‘‘Our current farm environmentplans

(FEPs)are mostlyabout reducing nitrate

leaching, but this will bring together all of

the aspectsthat we consider on aday­today

basislike our staff well­being, animal

welfare, biosecurity and profitability,

along with futureconsiderations such as

greenhouse gases and biodiversity.

‘‘We’re trying to front­foot the issues and

be proactive whilst ensuring farm viability

is at the centreofall thatwedo.’’

The project will be managedbyland and

water management consultants Water

Strategies, which supported the trust in

developing the projectand getting funding.

Environment Canterbury (ECan),

Waimakariri IrrigationLtd, DairyNZ and

Ballance Agri­Nutrients haveall signed up

to support the project.

years agotobring interested parties

Around120 local farming families are

Reflections on a

Covid-hit season

By LINDSAY KERR

Like all other sport in North Canterbury,

rugby did not escape the ugly reality of

Covid­ 19.

The season’s curtailment was not

without positive elements. It featured a

one­round premier competition that was

hailed by many as an outstanding success.

In recent seasons North Canterbury has

become accustomed to an amalgamated

competition with neighbours Ellesmere

and Mid Canterbury, before asingle­round

local competition.

When agreement was made to combine,

the local senior competition was struggling

for numbers and teams.

To be invitedinto this new format was

perhaps arescue. However, since the

original combined competition began,

North Canterburyhas increased

representation to seven teams, with eight

in the local competition.

Perhaps the first Covid punishment this

season was the canning of the combined

competition. But was it?

When we came out of lockdown there

was time for aone­roundlocal

competition. Players were by this time

thirsting for competition —and what a

great competition it proved to be.

Yes, Glenmark­Cheviotmaintained its

unbeaten record going back to May 2018,

but invariably all games were tight.

It is also notable that Ohoka, which

eventually finished seventh, held the

North Canterburyjuggernaut to adraw.

The future is now up for review by the

North Canterburysub union.

RUGBY

Does the new status quo remain, but

with two rounds and finals? Do we bring

back the combined competition or

combine with Ellesmere only, who, like

North Canterbury, form part of a

Canterbury Country sub unions

framework? Questions are also timely for

the CanterburyCountry representative

programme. For some time, this calendar

has become largely irrelevant and, in 2019,

it was non­existent.

Added to this quandary is little

representation of country players in

Canterbury teams.

Such asituation has not been helped by

many of the better players being

approached by metro clubs. This has

created aculture in which players now

believe that if they want to be recognised

by Canterbury, they need to move into the

Metro competition.

Canterbury Country has along history of

providing many players for Canterbury

and All Blacks teams.

However, this is now along time ago.

Arecent announcement by the New

Zealand Rugby Union that it intends to

review the Heartland competition signals

apossible opportunity to solve the

Canterbury Country representative

programme.

This competition has become

unsustainable and, if regionalised in a

fashion similar to cricket’s Hawke Cup

competition, aCanterbury Country team

would fit nicely into any equation.

Acoupleofweeks without competition

gamesdid the Rangiora HockeyClub’s

Division 1men’s side no favours. It was out

of sorts against astrong Carlton Redcliffs

team,sufferingits worst result this season.

In contrast, the Division 3men played a

top game, trouncing top­of­the­table

Southern United 4­0.

The Rangiorawomen’s Division 1, 2and

3teams all sufferedweekenddefeats,

though the Division 3side played well in

its double­header against the top two

teamsinthe grade.

The RangioraAllsortsmid­week men’s

team played arguablyits best game of the

season in an unlucky 3­2 loss to University

Alumni, ateam which beat them 11­0 in

round1.

The Rangiora­Hurunui mid­week

women’s team continuesits winning ways

of late withatight 2­1 win against

Hinemoa­Kaiapoi Totara.

In theother localderby of the round, the

Rangiora PlatinumAgirls’team beat its

Hinemoa Kaiapoi counterparts 2­1,

ensuringitcompletes the round­robinin

qualifier HSOB/Burnside.

In fact, all Rangiora Hockey Club’s

Platinum teams secured wins heading into

the semi­finals.

In junior grades,nothing can stop the

Rangiora Rabbits ministicksgirls

juggernaut. While nobody is keeping

official score, the Rabbits have scored

more than 80 goals, and conceded fewer

than 5through the season.

The other mini sticks girls’team is also

Te Wiki oTeReo Māori

Waimakariri Libraries have created avirtual

celebration this year to celebrate Te Wiki oTe

Reo Māori. Library and Council staff have worked

together behind the scenes to create something

special for the library website and social media.

Local schools who would normally perform in the

library have filmed their kapa haka groups, and have

shared these with the library to be featured on our

social media, with adifferent school being featured

each day during the week.

Storytimes, and Toddler Times sessions during the

week will feature picture book readings inTeReo

Māori, and staff will sing waiata especially for

pre-schoolers.

Natural Hazards Maps

The Waimakariri community are being invited to

view new models and maps showing the possible

extent of natural hazards onland in the Waimakariri

District –which have been updated to provide the

best possible information for landowners looking to

buy, build ordevelop.

Hazard information being updated includes:

• Flooding –from rainfall, coastal inundation and

stop bank breach

• Tsunami

• Liquefaction

• Fault lines.

The maps will be available from Friday 18

September onthe Council website at

waimakariri.govt.nz/letstalk

Development Planning Manager Trevor Ellis says

improving the accuracy of hazard maps isan

important bit of work due tochanged legislative

requirements around climate change, reducing

natural hazard risk, and ensuring preparedness and

response tonatural disasters.

Hazard maps are used when processing resource

consents, rezoning land, for project information

memoranda and building consents toensure

that the risk from natural hazards topeople and

buildings is assessed.

They are also referred to on land information

memorandum (LIMs) for buyers and sellers of

property. The maps will also inform new planning

provisions as part ofthe District Plan Review.

At this stage, the Council isstill deciding how

best torespond to the updated information, both

in terms of reviewing planning rules, as well as

considering how it will affect the community and its

assets into the future.

Community engagement on dra map information

was undertaken inSeptember 2019. Since then,

investigation, reporting and modelling has

occurred, and has now been finalised and

adopted by the Council.

The new information will improve understanding of

the risks within the Waimakariri District.

COASTAL WARNING

SIRENTEST

MONDAY 28 SEPTEMBER 1PM

Waimakariri Civil Defence will be testing the

district’s coastal warning system at 1pm on

Monday 28 September.

Sirens are located at The Pines Beach/Kairaki,

Woodend and Waikuku beaches, however

depending on wind conditions, the sound may

travel further.

The test message will last for approximately one

Report on suicide hailed as bold

By DAVID HILL

Anew reportaimedatreducing

suicide highlights the plight of

ruralcommunities,Waimakariri

MP Matt Doocey says.

The Zero SuicideAotearoa

report, funded by SouthernCross

and prepared for Parliament’s

cross­party Mental Health and

Addiction Wellbeing Group, was

released lastweek to coincide

with WorldSuicide Prevention

Day.

Mr Doocey, who chairs the

group, saysthe reportis‘‘a bold

report’’ which calls on all parties

in Parliament to work together to

reduce suicide.

‘‘Allsuicides are preventable in

New Zealand and by lookingat

long­term policysolutions we can

play our partinreducing

suicides.’’

The reportidentifiesseveralatrisk

groups, including Maori,

Pasifika, young people, workingage

men, men overage 85, the

rainbow community, and those on

farms.

Farm­related suicides are of

particular interest to Mr Doocey,

with the report indicating farm

labourers are twice as likely as

farm owners to take their own

lives.

‘‘When you look at suicide in

ruralcommunities, there’s ahigh

prevalence of those people who

have not previously engagedwith

health services before, so we need

to make sure we invest heavily in

ruralsupport trustsand those who

work on the ground in rural

communities.’’

Lack of access to health

services, lack of fundingand

isolation, as well as relationship

break­ups, alcohol and ready

access to firearms,were

identified as contributing factors.

The reportsuggested rural

suicide preventionefforts needed

to focus on suitably resourcing

community, farming and sports

organisations, as wellashealth

and socialservices.

Localmental healthadvocates

welcomed the report.

Rangiora mentalhealth

advocate Bryon Cope said the

reports pushes for ‘‘a more

collaborative approach’’tomental

health, but says any new strategy

‘‘needs to go beyond traditional

health responses’’.

Mental health services needto

be moreflexible to fit each

individual’s needs, rather than

what the funding model provides,

Mr Copesays.

Better resourcing in schools

and workplaces could prevent

many situationsreachingcrisis

point, he says.

‘‘People havetools thatthey use

to cope with every day ebbs and

flows, but whenthe situation

changes,they try to use those

same tools untilthey reach crisis

point.

‘‘Feeling like shit is anormal

reaction,sotelling peopleit’s OK

can makeabig difference.’’

Rams lose challenging final

Pair in fine form

INDOOR CRICKET

The North Canterbury Rams

stumbled at the last hurdle

when the side met Central

Sharks Silver in the Grand

B­grade final of the Indoor

Cricket Canterbury

Superleague.

Silver was the only team to

beat the Rams in the roundrobin

—handing the side its

only loss leading to the

finals.

Silver won the toss and

sent the Rams into field.

The Rams made agreat

start, taking four wickets in

the first pair, restricting

them to just four runs.

Silver fought back with its

second pair to post ahuge

41. The side’s third and

fourth pairs chipped in with

decent partnerships to leave

the side with 82 on the

board.

There was some great

bowling by Brendon

Wellington, taking three

wickets for ­1 runs, and Ian

King, who took two wickets

for ­2 .

The Rams’ first pair of

Kyle Brown and Kane

Campbell posted only six

runs, with Silver taking four

wickets.

The experienced pair of

captain Jeff Jones and

Brendon Wellington were

up next, and lost only one

wicket, posting 29.

The Rams were still in the

game at this point, with

Lindon Adonis and Matt

Blackmore coming outtobat

in the third partnership.

Silver knuckled down and

took another four wickets,

three of which came off

captain Ant Brown’s over.

This left the final pair of

Aaron Turner and Ian King

areasonable chase of 39 off

their four overs.

Silver bowled atight line

and took another three

wickets, so despite some

hard hitting from Aaron and

Ian, the Rams were left 19

short on 63.

However, the side does get

to keep the Canterbury Club

Shield for the 2020 season.

The North Canterbury

Rams are now playing in a

Premier ‘‘best of the best’’

tournament on September

18 and 19, before attention is

turned to outdoor cricket.
