Changes at medical centre

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Funding cuts by the

Canterbury District Health

Board have forced changes to

the Amberley Medical Centre’s

after­hour service in the

southern Hurunui District.

The board will stop funding

the service on September 30.

Practice manager Denise

Cope said while she was

disappointed the board was

cutting the funding, the

medical centre remained

committed to providing an

after­hours service. It has been

working hard to find the best

sustainable solution for its

community, she says.

‘‘Although we can no longer

provide in­person care

overnight, we will continue to

provide 24­hour care with

extended clinic opening

hours.’’

Adoctor will always be

available to provide phone

advice and support, she says.

says there is an average of four

after­hours calls aweek, with

65 percent of them before 8pm.

‘‘We are therefore planning

to extend our opening hours

from 8am until 8pm, Monday to

Friday, to accommodate the

majority of those patients

needing urgent care afterhours.

‘‘These extended hours will

also improve access to routine

primary health care with aGP

or nurse at the practice,’’ she

says.

Denise says the extended

evening hours are also

designed to support those in

the community who may work

full­time or commute to work,

as well as providing flexibility

for families.

At weekends and public

holidays, urgent care walk­in

clinics, which run from 10am

to 1pm, will remain

unchanged. The second phase

will see the medical centre

extend its hours, opening for

12 hours from 8am.

The practice is running a

local awareness campaign to

encourage enrolled patients to

make contact with the centre

early in the evening if they

start to feel unwell, and think

care might be needed during

the night.

‘‘That way we can try to

organise an in­person

appointment before 8pm and

reduce the need for any

patient to travel to town

(Christchurch) for care,’’

Denise says.

The extended evening hours

and overnight service will be

specifically available to

patients enrolled at Amberley

Medical Centre, Cheviot

Community Health Centre and

visitors to the district.

Visitors include those

individuals travelling or

staying within the Hurunui

district.

the practice, visit its website,

Waimakariri could soon

have a‘‘youth­friendly

Hot on the heels of the

Age­friendlyPlan,

approved by the

WaimakaririDistrict

Council last year,aYouth­

Friendly Communities

Plan is being developed.

An onlineyouthsurvey

was launched lastmonth

with the help of a

University of Canterbury

student intern.

Youthdevelopment

facilitator SamRedman

hopestopresent the

findings to thecouncil in

November, before starting

work on the youthfriendly

plan.

The plan would build

on the Youth Development

Strategy adopted

two years ago.

‘‘We had an intern last

year who completeda

project focused on youth

spaces, identifying what is

already there and where

thereare gaps,’’ Samsays.

‘‘Thesecond intern is

focusing on youth

activities,asking what

youngpeople spend their

sparetimedoing and

whereand there are

gaps.’’

Educationopportunities,employmentand

transport willalso be

considered as part of

developing the plan, Sam

says.

‘‘It’s something I’m

quiteexcitedabout.

‘‘Thepotential is really

big.

‘‘If we can haveaplan

which bringsall of these

things together it will be

Approval for $2m pool revamp

By ROBYN BRISTOW

After adecade of debate and

reports, a$2million heated,

covered pool should open in

Amberley late next year.

The Hurunui District

Council has backed the

South Ward committee’s

recommendation to

refurbish the existing pool

in Douglas Road, using its

existing footprint, based on

adesign from Create Ltd.

Council community

activator and project leader

Roger Hornblow says the

aim is to have the project

‘‘shovel ready’’ by July 1.

He told the council last

week that it was ‘‘pretty

exciting’’ to get the project

over the line, with the only

disappointment being the

loss of an outside pool.

He said it became clear

money was better spent on

meeting the wishes of the

community to heat the pool,

particularly with the major

renovations needed.

It had taken 12 months to

analyse the needs of pool

users and come up with pool

designs and costings.

Mr Hornblow said anew

been made easier, and

swimming instruction would

be improved, with the

shallow end made slightly

shallower and the pool floor

gradient made safer.

‘‘The deep end is still

going to be the current

depth.

‘‘The fun factor is

enhanced with a‘bombing

platform’ at the deep end

and afamily friendly

outdoor area.

‘‘The pool environment

will look and feel like anew

pool, with anew pool lining,

new filtration system, and

the surrounding concrete

levelled and covered with

an epoxy floor,’’ he said.

There had been

frustration and

disappointment over the

past decade, but he hoped

the new design would give

IMAGES:SUPPLIED

the community something to

be excited about.

He said the Save our Pool

group had played an

invaluable part to date, and

would continue to do so in

the future.

Cr Michael Ward said it

gave him immense pleasure

to move the adoption of the

committee’s

recommendation ‘‘at long

last’’, while Cr Geoff Shier

said it had been along

process that had polarised

people, but the community

could now come together

with the common goal of

raising funds for the project.

The council has

committed $1.5 million, with

the rest to be sought from

funding agencies and the

Save our Pool group, which

already has about $100,000

in the bank.

Pupils enjoy cemetery project

By DAVID HILL

Kaiapoi High School pupils have

been helping to identify graves at the

local RSA cemetery.

AYear 11 literacy class spent time

at the Kaiapoi RSA Cemetery to

check off the grave sites and match

the names of old soldiers and their

spouses against amaster list.

The information will be used to

develop amap and plot­finder to

make it easier for people to find the

final resting place of family

members.

Deputy principal Elizabeth

McMeeken said the pupils completed

an NCEA Level 2project working in

groups, with each group allocated a

section of the cemetery, devising a

strategy, dividing up tasks and

carrying them out.

“The learning was the key thing,’’

she said. ‘‘They all knew what we

were aiming for and it’s important

that they learn the skills of working

together, coming up with aplan and

seeing if it works.”

Along the way the pupils

researched the acronyms for the

ranks and other military terms.

Pupils Kaleb Cahill, aged 16, and

Tyler Young, 15, said they enjoyed

working on the project, even though

they had to return to school early

after it started raining on the day.

“It was good to do something in the

community instead of just going to

school,” Kaleb says.

Mrs McMeeken said it was good to

give her pupils the chance to do

something positive in the community.

‘‘These students wouldn’t normally

get involved in these sorts of

activities. They are teenagers, mainly

boys, and they are into outdoor stuff.”

In memory ... It will soon

be easier to find old

soldiers at the Kaiapoi RSA

Cemetery. PHOTOS: DAVID HILL

Looking to

the future

By DAVID HILL

Canterbury mayors are looking ahead to

2050.

An initiative has started to develop a

long­term visionofwhat the Greater

Christchurch areawill looklike in 30

years, Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon

says.

‘‘We haveanopportunity to work

together alongside iwi and mana whenua

to set astrong direction for Greater

Christchurch and to strengthen our

relationship withcentralgovernment,’’

says Mr Gordon,who is the Greater

Christchurch Partnership deputy chair.

‘‘We needtobethinking now about the

future we want for our children and

grandchildren.’’

Key to setting a2050 vision willbehow

the region recovers from Covid­19 by

planningfor growth, attracting

industries,employment and investment,

and providingprosperityfor the next

generation, Mr Gordon says.

‘‘It will alsoaddress the impact of

climate changeonour environmentand

communities,and set out agreed actions

as we movetowards being azero­carbon

economy.’’

The Greater Christchurch Partnership

is acollaborationbetween the

Christchurch, Selwyn and Waimakariri

councils, Environment Canterbury, Ngai

Tahu,the Canterbury District Health

Boardand government agencies.

Mr Gordon saysheremembers being

Jamie is aMarlborough District Councilor

with over 10 years’ governance in local

government. Jamie has worked across

all facets of Council and as aqualified

Hearings Commissioner, has experience

with Environment Planning and the

RMA. Prior to Council and still apassion

for Jamie today, ishis involvement in

Horticulture. He is well known from his

time at local markets and for his family’s

long involvement in farming and fruit

growing in the region. Jamie completed

his Business and Management Diploma at

NMIT. His wife Sally, ahairdresser, and

their four children aged 11 -20, have been

actively involved in local markets and

festivals. Youwill often find them at local

sporting events and day to day schooling

activities.

Being ahard worker, good listener,

communicator and an active member of

the community -Jamie know the issues.

There are many major infrastructure

projects in the Kaikoura Electorate that

need Government support including

the Picton Ferry Terminal upgrades,

The Whale Trail along the East coast of

Kaikoura, Irrigation Schemes and future

water storage proposals, road and rail.

The Provincial Growth Fund will play

acritical role in our Region; Hanmer

Springs recently received $3.1m towards

domestic tourism to improve the thermal

pools and Kaikoura received $10.88m

for the Wakatu Quay and South Bay

Developments which are important for

employment and growth.

Covid-19 has presented major challenges

for our local economy. There are many

affected sectors such as hospitality,

tourism, accommodation, retail,

construction and the small to medium

sized businesses within that. Primary

sectors such as viticulture, seafood,

aquaculture, farming and forestry will be

critical for our recovery. Afocus must be

on stopping business closure, job losses

and providing support to our communities

around mental health. Parts of the

Kaikoura electorate are reliant on tourism

activities and it will be vital to showcase

our region as the gateway to the South

Island. There are major opportunities

with offshore aquaculture -the resilience

and growth of primary industries can

be ensured with favourable government

policies and the right investments into key

strategic assets.

Waimakariri

Focus from Dan Gordon, Mayor

Big voluntary effort

behind many events

It is greattobeatlevel 1. This past

weekendhas seen several community

events.Iwould like to commend the event

organisers for putting on suchawide

variety of activities for our communityto

enjoy.

The Lightand SoundFestival in Victoria

Park was excellent. Unfortunately,the

weather on Sunday saw both the Rangiora

Festival of Colour and the Kaiapoi Party in

the Park postponed.

We are luckytohave community

organisations that put in ahuge voluntary

effort so thatour community can enjoy

these events.

Friday night saw an event in Kaiapoi

acknowledging 10 years sincethe

September 4earthquake. This was to have

been celebrated on September 4, but was

delayedbecause of Covid­19.

The event was held to commemorate this

anniversary but, more importantly, to

celebrate how far we have come together

and achieved since that time. Whilethe

earthquakes represented asignificant

challenge, they also presented significant

opportunities.

Much has happened in those 10 years

and Iamparticularly proud of the way our

community and businessesralliedand

helped us rebuild.

Our recovery is testimony to the spirit

and strength of you all. Our community is

stronger than ever before.

OxfordArt Galleryalso celebrated10

years since it officially opened.Renowned

New Zealand artist and Gallery Patron

Philip Trusttum was present for the

openingofhis exhibition.

If you are in Oxford, or planning a

journeythere,itisworth atrip to see

Philip’s work and support the gallery.

Personally, Ienjoy supporting the

creativepart of our community and

attending our galleries to see the latest

exhibitions, or attending the various

performingarts events.

We are fortunateasadistrict to haveso

much talent that we can enjoy and

Crucial steps toward

Government’s Essential Freshwater

The primary pieces of legislationare the

National Policy Statement for Freshwater

(NPSFM), National Environmental

Standards for Freshwater (NES) and stock

exclusion regulations.

The NPSFM isabout improving the

For Continuity

Of Care

At Pegasus Medical Centre we pride ourselves on our commitment to our Staff,Patientsand the Community.

Pegasus Medical Centre is committed to its community.

As the busy practice continues to grow, itprovides

patients with access to avariety of clinics and specialists

at the practice.

Today it has seven doctors, six receptionists, five

nurses and aclinical assistant. It has ateam of visiting

specialists offering everything from Psychology,

Midwifery, Dietary, gynaecology, obstetrics, cardiology,

foot care, audiology, colorectal &General Surgery and

Hand &Orthopaedic clinics who use the Medical Centre

to support the wider North Canterbury community.

Practice Manager Nicky Sloss says this ensures lengthy

trips into the city can be avoided and patients are often

able to access the services they require quicker.

The practice recognises good healthcare can

strengthen acommunity and the Doctors, Nurses and

Administrative staff work hard to accommodate all

patients in atimely manner. This was especially true

during lockdown and the resulting Covid 19 levels that

followed.

We are absolutely committed to our community here at

Pegasus Medical centre and on the wellbeing of both our

patients and our Staff” she says.

Nicky said the response to the initial lockdown in March

by the practice was both quick and agile as they adapted

to meet the fast changing environment.

Owners Dr John Dehn &DrJanet Robinson

immediately put aplan in place to ensure all staff were

informed and supported, organising medical supplies

including PPE together with additional resources to keep

everyone safe.

“Covid 19 has been challenging for us and for our

Patients. We have worked extremely hard within the

guidelines set out by the Ministry of Health which have

changed sometimes on adaily basis to deliver the best

care we can particularly for our elderly and vulnerable

patients” says Dr Dehn.

Morning huddles at the start of the day kept staff

informed on the pandemic and provided an opportunity

to discuss updates and implement any changes required

to work within the guidelines.

Patients were to the fore as telephone consultations

were offered which for awhile replaced face to face

consultations in abid to decrease risk for everyone.

Patients requiring face to face consultations were initially

seen in the car park if they showed any Covid like

symptoms which often resembled awaiting room with

cars full of patients waiting to see the Doctors or get their

flu vaccines safely away from others.

“All the Staff worked extremely hard to accommodate all

requests often under very trying circumstances and are

to be commended for their dedication and resilience at

such adifficult and uncertain time” says Nicky.

Dr Dehn says anew Patient portal via the website is

now available to assist Patients to book routine online

appointments, request repeat prescriptions and to

access lab results. This will be agreat tool for our

patients and we hope more of them will take advantage

of this technology” he says.

Dr John Dehn continues to offer skin checks and minor

surgeries at the Practice. This year Dr George Dehn

joined the team as aGPand has aparticular interest in

Musculoskeletal disorders.

KAREN Sloss

NICKY Sloss

Clinical nurse lead Karen Sloss has been with the

Pegasus Medical Centre since it opened its doors in 2013.

“The growth has been incredible.We have moved from

the initial small complex across the road to our spacious

purpose-built facility which is great to work in” Karen

says.

As lead nurse Karen says her role, outside of the daily

general nursing duties, is to support the nursing team of

six, liaising with the GPs and practice manager on clinical

matters.

“We work hard to support each other and to use our

individual strengths to improve patient outcomes. For us,

the patient is the main focus.”

Karen says it is great to work in an environment with

ateam that can offer awide range of services. “We offer ahigh level of acute care and a

variety of planned services.”

Karen is particularly proud of her nursing teams’ efforts during the Covid-19 lockdown

because alot of the initial communications with patients had to be over the phone.

This meant having to adapt to arapidly changing situation Karen says.

“It was achallenging time for us and our patients, but the team was flexible, responsive

and professional.”

Nicky Sloss, the new Pegasus Medical Centre

practice manager arrived amid the Covid 19

crisis earlier this year.

“It was abit of abaptism of fire to be

honest” said Nicky but she was immediately

struck by the willingness of all the Staff to

do what was needed and by the unwavering

support and leadership of both John &Janet.

Nicky comes from aprivate surgical

hospital background where she was initially

responsible for scheduling surgeons

operating list to eventually working as Patient

Services Manager and managing Reception

and Concierge Staff.

She took ayear off to travel to the UK and on her return home at the end of

October last year enjoyed ashort stint working for her friend who has aflorist

shop in Rangiora.

Deciding she wanted to return to the healthcare industry Nicky isenjoying

the diversity and challenges of general practice and is feeling grateful to be

working for apractice that values its Staff and strives for excellence in the

delivery of community based healthcare.

Problem with tree removals

started right at the top

Dear Editor

Regarding the article, ‘‘Trees had to go’’

(North Canterbury News,August 27), someone

needs to be held accountablefor the removal of

the trees.

Ibelieve Environment Canterbury (ECan)

chairwoman Jenny Hughey put her hand up

with her comments to that effect in the story.

The problem starts at the top, not the person

on the chainsaw.

If they are now preparing the area and

replanting, is that not putting trees back in the

same area?

Is the replanting with natives done at acost to

ECan and not charged to ratepayers?

There appears to many departments,

committees and subcommittees, and nobody

knows what’s going on.

What happened to the timber that was felled?

ECan felled them and, if it’s only good as

firewood,they should cut it up at their cost and

offer it free to locals who use logburners.Ifused

for other purposes, where are the funds?

They’re going to the Waimakariri council, I

hope.

To the person with the tidy yard who dumped

their grass clippings on the side of Northbrook

Road around September 24, they should try

using the green wastebin. Thenthey wouldn’t

be wasting petrol as well.

Yours,

Alan R.

Mother Nature

Dear Editor,

Once again, Mother Nature has shown her

power. Those old enoughhave experienced far

worse.

As Idrovehome from Kaikoura on Friday,

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

September 18, it was as if the world had

stopped, the fragility of relying on the

electricity network exposed.There was no

power from KaikouratoGreta Valley.

Therefore, they was no eftpos, no petrol, coffee

or wi­fi. It was cash only (if you had some). No

water from pumped supplies or wells.

That was just anorth­westgale. What happens

when asolar flare zips down to Earth and

knocks out all the computer­reliant systems?

Chaos,that’s what!

We no longer have the Ministry of Works and

the New ZealandElectricity Department that

had people on the groundthroughout our

communities. They could be on the job almost

instantly and knew what switch to pull —

provided the landline phoneswere working.

Ionce watched Balmoral Forest burn, only to

be flattened by agood old nor’wester about 25

years later, in 1975, and dust blanking out the

sun during the droughts of the 1970s.

North­west gales are part of North

Canterbury life. However, they do have a

potential upside in that they spill copious

amounts of rainfall on thisside of the Alps

which, so far, runs out to sea unharnessed.

Last week, during 96 hours of flood flow, the

34.5 million cubic metres of water generated

could have raisedLake Sumner 2.3 metres and

irrigated 7000 hectaresfor awhole year. We get

these repeated gales every spring and autumn.

We need desperately to get rid of aculture

that protects reactive governance and go back to

being Boy Scouts. Be Prepared.!

Yours,

School art expo

makes asplash

By DAVID HILL

Last week’s Kaiapoi North

School art expo was achance

for pupils to show off their

creativity after adisrupted

year.

Principal Jason Miles said

staff had planned aschool

production this year as part

of its art rotation, but the

plans were scrapped because

of Covid­19.

‘‘We decided to swap it and

have an art expo instead and

it worked out well, with the

move to level 1coming just in

time for the event.’’

Art teacher Nicole

Duxfield worked with the

children across all year

levels to bring out their

creativity, he says.

‘‘I like the way they are

given the same brief, but they

put their own individuality

into it.’’

Mrs Duxfield says her

proudest exhibit was the

Bonded By Bubbles art work,

to which all of the children

contributed. It recognises the

lockdown experience.

‘‘It was such astrange time

for all of us, so we wanted to

acknowledge it in apositive

way and the kids have

captured it beautifully.

‘‘Our community has gone

through alot over the last 10

years, beginning with the

earthquakes and now with

Covid­19 and they have coped

well.’’

Summerfield in top form

Asecond successive victoryfor Matt

Summerfield in as many outingswith his

new MitsubishiMirageAP4 rally car

showsgood form heading intohis home

rallyinfour weeks.

The Rangiora­based top seed was

fastest on all butone stageofthe Spring

RallyinSouthCanterbury, winning by

almost aminute.

On the heels of victory at the Catlins

Rally, he led a59­strong fieldaway from

Levels Raceway,Timaru, for eight

special stagestotalling 130km.

Apartfrom droppingafew seconds to

youngRobbie Stokes(in aFord Fiesta

AP4) on the opening stage, Summerfield

won everyotherleg convincinglyto

finish 59.2 seconds aheadofStokes, with

Josh Marston third (in aHolden Barina

AP4) just1.8 secondsbehind.

‘‘Stage one was getting the rust out of

the system, putting my ears back on and

learningtolisten again, so Igot through

that and didn’t look back, really,’’

Summerfield said at the finish.

Heading intothe Spring Rallywith a

new car and as the top seeds, Mattand

his co­driver, sister Nicole

Summerfield, knew there wouldbenew

lessons along the way.

‘‘Good to get the win. Cominginto the

rallyitwas unknown how the speed was

goingtobeinthe firstnoted rally of the

year.

‘‘Good being out the front.Therewas

alot of gravel on the road so we probably

escaped alittle bit of dust,sofrom that

pointofview it was pretty good for us.

‘‘Andlearning aboutbeing number

one [on the road] was quite key.Where

to put thecar, hunting for some smooth

lines, smooth tracks. Worked on it. It was

good to do our own thing and get back on

some notes.’’

The pair are using events thatallow

pacenotesaspreparationfor when

competition in the New Zealand rally

championship returnsnext year.

Victory in the first pacenote rally of

the year, after an absenceofnearly

12­months between ‘‘calls’’, is agood

start.

‘‘It was reallyabout getting back into

the rhythm of the notes. Today,weused

amixture of this year’sand last year’s

notes, and last year’s was alittle bit

better and Ithink that’s just because

we’d done rallies before thisone.’’

MEET THE CANDIDATES ­WAIMAKARIRI

Leighton Baker

New Conservative Waimakariri candidate

Leighton started life as ayoung buck

up in the sunny North Island and

graduated from St Kentigern College.

After graduation he worked asafarm

hand on asheep and beef farm in

Dargaville, learning the value of along

day’s work and how important it is to

think practically throughout life. This

also taught him how to understand the

nuances of farming and has helped

him realise today that the legislation

being put in place is not realistic or

workable.

He met his wife Sue (Waimak born

and bred) during amissions trip to

Fiji doing Cyclone relief and they

proceeded to get married and have

their first two children in Auckland.

He quickly learned (Sue may have

given him the nudge) that the place to

be was in North Canterbury, so they

moved their family and had two more

children in the South Island. Over

the 30 years he has now been in the

Waimakariri he has spent 6ofthose

tutoring youth to get them educated

around trades and into work.

Leighton has now built up

his multiple businesses in the

construction industry for the last 30

years which are focussed on creating

low energy and sustainable homes that

are safer and healthier for those living

in them. He has taken his construction

team over to Cambodia on multiple

occasions to help the local community

build aschool that was urgently

needed.

Afather of 4and agrandfather

of 5Leighton has seen it all and

understands how vital it is for families

to be supported and strengthened from

the inside out. He has been active

in his community volunteering with

running various kids camps, after

school programs and visiting prisons

to give the men hope to turn their lives

around.

Leighton has been avoice speaking

out against encouraging death in the

community, hestaunchly opposes

the euthanasia bill as New Zealand

already has one of the highest suicide

rates in the world and he believes

in encouraging life, this includes

standing against the new abortion laws

which allow abortion up until birth,

and in creating systems and building

communities that inspire hope and

help fight loneliness to give people

real connection. He also is opposed to







teaching gender ideology to children,

children need love and support and

encouragement, they do not need to

be confused about their gender or

taught to take chemicals or go through

procedures that they do not need.

Position Statement:

We have seen asteady decline in our

democracy over the last few years,

from the restriction of free speech,

the selling off of our assets without

democratic process, passing of laws

without proper consultation, at one

stage there was 15 passed in 24 hours,

not to mention the gun buy-back which

made out like honest licence holders

were criminals. Yet, we still have hope.

Here at New Conservative we still

remember the freedom that our

ancestors fought for and we respect

and acknowledge the sacrifice that

those who have gone before us have

given up. We believe in binding

citizens referenda, which would allow

Kiwis to have avoice in their nation,

you may not agree with all aparties

policies but the majority of our nations

voices need to be listened to and

binding referenda allows that.

New Conservative fights for our

economy, farming contributes 30% our

our GDP so we believe in supporting

farmers and getting out of the Paris

Accord and the ETS scheme which is

turning our prime farmland into pine

tree acreage that is then handed over

to foreign interests.

Finally, webelieve in families.

Families need to be able to support

each other and our income splitting

policies allows parents that much

needed boost in their back pocket. The

stronger our families are the stronger

our nation is.

So when you go to vote remember it’s

your nation, it needs your voice.

MattDoocey

MP forWaimakariri

Since being elected MP of Waimakariri six years ago,Ihave enjoyed

being ahands-on MP who has strived to be accessible and I’m always

looking at ways to help our residents beheard onwhat they need.

I’m committed tothe Waimakariri. Waimakariri is agreat place tobring

up afamily. Iknow this because Ilive and work in the electorate with my

wife, Viki, who is aswim teacher at Kaiapoi Aquatic Centre, and our two

children, who love attending their local schools.

Ihave fought hard for our community tomake sure wehave the

infrastructureand resources weneed to meet the demands of arapidly

growing community.

I’ve fought hard for our residents bysecuring afterhours health care;

saving the Waikukubus service; ensuring our region is resourced for

infrastructureto bring shorter travel times for our commuters; fighting

for the government to commit to the Belfast toPegasus motorway,

including the Woodend Bypass; and Istood up for our Belfast residents

against aproposal tostore 40,000 bales ofwaste near homes.

Being aware ofthe issues on the ground brings relevance tomy role

and it is by keeping connected to the local issues that Ihave been

most effective.

Ihave kept connected to our issues by making myself available to

meet with our residents atatime and place that suits them, whether

in my offices, communityconstituent clinics, night meetings or morning

coffee catch-ups. Your support has shown mehow much you value

accessibility and commitment to your area.

Before entering politics, Iworked in mental health both in New Zealand

and the UK. Iwent into mental health to make adifference and politics

is away of continuing to make that difference.

In Parliament, as National’s first Mental Health Spokesperson, Iinitiated

New Zealand’sfirst mental health cross-party approach in Parliament

to develop long-term solutions for New Zealanders and to break down

the barriers toprogress inresponding to the growing demand for

mental-health services.

In my first term as Member of Parliament, Ibrought down Parliament’s

Social Services Select Committee toCanterbury tohear directly from

service providers about their response toour communities’ psychosocial

recovery needs. Iworked to ensure there was cross-party

representation for the visit in recognition of Parliament’s continued

support ofour recovery.

I’m invested inthe Waimakariri. It’s my home and yours. It is always

been my priority tohave the voice ofthe Waimakariri heard and this

is something Iwork hard at. Iamprivileged to represent you and Ilook

forward tocontinue working hard for Waimakariri.

National has always and will continue to support our farmers, as they

are the backbone of our economy and will help us through these

difficult times.

Dan Rosewarne

Labour Waimakariri candidate

Dan enlisted into the NZArmy at

the age of 18 and completed an Auto

Heavy Engineering apprenticeship.

After several years in this role Dan

moved up through the ranks and

took on various mentoring, training

and logistics management roles.

Dan believes that every New

Zealander deserves the opportunity

to reach their full potential and

have ashare in the Kiwi Dream of

home ownership, world class health

care and awell-paid job. Dan is

passionate about the trades and

believes that apprenticeships are

vital tobusiness and the economy.

Dan is committed to improving

pathways for young people to

get into apprenticeships and for

businesses totake on apprentices.

With the New Zealand Defence

Force, Dan has served on several

operational tours, including two to

Afghanistan. It is these experiences

that have helped shape Dan’sviews

on the importance ofequality, social

justice and providing opportunities

for everyone to get ahead.

Some ofDan’s career highlights

include deploying as part of the

regional assistance mission to

the Solomon Islands in 2008.

and providing disaster relief

to Christchurch after the 2011

earthquakes. In 2016 Dan was

involved with the planning,

coordination and distribution of

essential supplies into Kaikoura

immediately after the earthquake.

Most recently Dan has been part

of the New Zealand Defence Force

contribution to the COVID-19 All

of Government response and has

been involved with the planning,

establishment and management

of the Canterbury based managed

isolation and quarantine facilities.

Dan and his Wife Sheree have

two young children and live in the

Woodend region.

“It is an absolute privilege to be

representing Labour in my home

region of Waimakariri. We have

come together to fight the virus as

acommunity. Now, our rebuild

will be an opportunity to reset NZ

and build equality back into the

economy.

This crisis has shown the

importance of astrong social

safety net. Many people are

accessing assistance who never

have had to before. Labour has a

plan to meet the needs of the post

COVID-19 New Zealand.

The Labour-led government

responded to COVID-19 with

support to over 1.6 million kiwis

through the wage subsidy scheme

and with one-year interest free

business loans to support small

businesses who need it. Part of

our recovery includes over $400

million to help tourism and big

health investments to catch up

on operations and to keep us

well. Our rebuild will include

$15 billion to build and upgrade

hospitals, roads and housing to

keep us moving. The cornerstone

of our rebuild is more new jobs

–tobuild schools, roads and

conserve our environment.

Istarted out my working life

in the trades and have gone

on to have asuccessful career

in the NZDF. With my proven

leadership ability, and my

experience contributing to the All

of Government response to many

of our recent natural disasters,

Iwill bring real life experience

with me to Parliament that will

be needed to meet the needs of our

community.”

Ashgrove principal retires

By DAVID HILL

ChristineChadwick found out theremight be

an openingfor the principal’s roleatAshgrove

School while visiting aschool gala.

Thatwas 14 years ago, and at the time

Christine was commutingfrom Rangiora to her

jobasprincipalatBreens IntermediateSchool

in Christchurch.

“The gala wasareal communityeventand

this is areal communityschool, and so I

applied,” she says.

In her time,she has seenthe school grow to

apeak of 587 pupils. In the years afterthe 2010

and 2011earthquakes, the school was bulging

at the seams as families moved to Rangiora.

“It was adifficult time, but it was alsoan

interesting time wherewehad to rethinkwhat

we were doing,” Christine says.

“Learning and teaching was changingaswe

reviewed our work andour teaching spaces,

but I’ve workedwith some amazing people in

my time.”

Christine is thankfulfor the support of her

fellow principals. She chaired the North

CanterburyPrimary Principals' Association for

4 1 ⁄2 years,until justbeforeher retirement at the

end of term three.

“When we needeach other for support

there’salways someone you cantalk to. After

the earthquakes we found it was very

important that we looked outfor eachother, so

our focus as agroup has beenonthe welfare of

our principals.

“And morerecently, with Covid­19, it has

been about making sure we’ve all got the

resources and we share information to keep

each other well­informed aboutwhat’s

happening.”

Christine says the role of aschool principal

is “a multi­faceted job”,asaleader, project

manager, an advocate for childreninacrisis,

supportingthe wellbeing of staff, supporting

fundraising efforts, and supporting the

community.

As amum herself, she is “verysympathetic”

to the plightofworkingmums.

Christine Chadwick

“My childrenwere veryused to comingto

schoolwith me or being dropped off at care. My

familyhas always been abig part of it all. All

they’ve ever knownismum beingatschool.”

Her family was unabletoattend her final

schoolassemblybecause of Covid­19, but a

photographer was on hand to capture the

moment.

Christine has already been shoulder­tapped

about takingon“retirement roles”,but for now

she is keen to take awell­earned rest.

“I started my teachingcareer in 1978and I

only took time off to havechildren and a

sabbatical.

“I may do abit of contractworkdown the

track.Idon’t think Icould leave local

education altogether.”

Ashgrove Schoolwill begin term four witha

new principal,Leon Van’tVeen­Gibbon, who is

returninghometoCanterbury after astint in

‘‘It’s been slow going the

whole way and then we had abig

rush with exhibitors and RSVPs

at the end.

‘‘We had alot who enquired,

but they just couldn’t commit in

this climate, so we are really

lucky to have this number and

thrilled to be at level 1.’’

Rangiora Promotions first

centre, with 20 businesses

‘‘But we realised we couldn’t

do it again this year.’’

While most of the stallholders

Quarry plans given airing at public session

By SHELLEY TOPP

Taggart chief executive Paul

Taggart faced agrilling at a

public drop­in session about

the company’s proposed quarry

at Rangiora Racecourse.

It was delivered by people at

last week’s session who oppose

the company’s proposal for a

quarry at the racecourse.

Mr Taggart, who lives in

Clarkville, said he understood

that many people in Rangiora

were opposed to the quarry, but

he believed those who attended

the drop­in session went away

with a‘‘better understanding of

what we want to do and why’’.

However, Sue Johnson, who

lives near the racecourse, told

Mr Taggart she was against the

quarry and believed it would be

‘‘the nail in the coffin’’ for

Rangiora.

‘‘People won’t want to live

here,’’ she said. ‘‘Rangiora is

filled with alot of families and

older people. We love living

here. We don’t want to live near

aquarry.’’

People attending were met at

the door by Hamish Peacock,

technical director of Pattle

Delamore Partners, an

engineering and environmental

consultancy company hired by

Taggart to outline the quarry

proposal to the public.

The consultancy had

installed atrail of information

about the quarry plan and the

Taggart company, pinned to

display boards in the room at

the racecourse hosting the

session.

The information included a

request for submissions on the

proposal and an assurance that

the consents process will be

publicly notified.

Waimakariri District Council

Mayor Dan Gordon, who

attended the session, said later

that Taggart formally filed an

application for the quarry with

the council on April 9.

‘‘The applicant lodged

several versions of

documentation prior to this, but

these did not meet the

requirements of the RMA

(Resource Management Act) in

terms of information and were

formally returned,’’ he said.

The Taggart application did

not request public notification.

‘‘Technically, an applicant

cannot request nonnotification;

they can only

request public notification,’’ Mr

Gordon said.

‘‘However an applicant’s

assessment of environmental

effects may conclude that no

persons will be affected by a

proposal,’’ he said.

Notification requirements

for aconsent are set out in

section 95 of the act.

The decision on notification

or otherwise is made by an

officer delegated by the council

to make adecision under this

section, and is made after

considering areport from a

planning officer.

Mr Taggart said arevised

consent application for the

quarry would likely be lodged

with the district council within

the next two weeks.

Petition group ... Some of the

more than 4000 people who

signed apetition opposing a

Rangiora Racecourse quarry

proposed by Taggart were at the

racecourse on Wednesday last

week for an information session

about the proposal.

Afloral statement

By SHELLEY TOPP

The first solo exhibition by Kaiapoiartist

Christine Wattonhas transformed

Kaiapoi’s Art on the Quay Gallery into a

meanderingcottage gardenofpaintings in

full bloom.

She saysthe exhibition, Bloom,isabout

celebratingher artistic blooming over the

last 13 years, and to thank thosewho

helped along the way.

The journey began at an abstract art

classatPapanuiHigh School 13 years ago,

whereshe had Marie Smuts­Kennedy

inspire and instruct her.

Her son Jamie’sinterest in photography

also sparked Christine’s interestin

learninghow to takephotographs, which

led to anotherPapanuiHigh School

connection, this time with adulteducation

photography tutor John Foster. It has, she

says,had awonderful spin­off for her

painting,inparticular in her understanding

of light and composition.

Although there are 23 paintingsin

Christine’s exhibition, only sevenare for

sale.‘‘They are still just babies,’’she says.

‘‘When they get to theirteens Iwill let

them go.’’

Although the exhibition has provided

Christine with an opportunity to thank

people who have helped her develop as an

artist and photographer, Art on the Quay

Gallery manager Jackie Watson told

opening­nightguests that she wantedto

also thank Christinefor her extensive,

tireless, volunteer work in the community,

particularly in the artssector.

Agood bit of schoolHYPe

The three colleges in Hurunui have been thoroughly

enjoying their regular visits by our Youth Development

Officer Ward Shearman. Circulating between Hurunui

College, Amuri Area School and Cheviot Area School, he

spends time playing ball sports, conducting skills sessions

and talking about Hurunui Youth Council. Applications for

2021 for HYP will be open October 16. Keep aneye on

HYP social media Facebook and Instagram.

Great newsfor the Amberley Pool.

Agreat young workforce

The Mayoral Taskforce for Jobs (MTFJ) has been ahuge

collaborative success. Hurunui District Council has

secured up to $500,000 of funding from Central

Government with the Ministry of Social Development, to

build working relationships between local businesses and

youths (aged between 18-24) who have been displaced

from work due to COVID-19. HDC Project leader Chris

King is very grateful to the local businesses who

responded; local farmers, Waghorn Builders, Nor Wester

Café, Bee Buzz Apiaries, White Lily Hairdressers, GVT

Landlines and JP Morgan Contracting.

Fun

fact!

Recognising our volunteers

Volunteers groups have been

celebrating those who make it all

happen. These have included Amuri St John, Waikari Fire Brigade,

and Cheviot St John. Pictured here is at Cheviot St John,

dedicating their new emergency response vehicle to three

foundation members who still live in Cheviot; Mr Tom Barnes, Mr

Bruce Childs, and Mr Eric Page.

Mayor Marie Black has enjoyed attending them all. “The heart of

the volunteer isnot measured in the size, but the depth of the

commitment tomake adifference to the lives of others.”

The existing pool will now be heated, there will be new changing rooms, toilets and

showers. Access into the pool for the elderly, mobility impaired, and parents will be

made easy with apod system. The fun factor isenhanced with a‘bombing platform’

at the deep end and afamily friendly outdoor area. The project will be shovel ready

July 2021. Mayor Marie Black was thrilled to see this given the green light last week.

“This is such wonderful news for Amberley and the wider community. Water safety is

an integral part of our society and having afantastic facility like this not only

helps with this aspect, but also creates asafe and fun option for activity and

social gatherings, for everyone.”.

Aword fromyourCEO,

Hamish Dobbie.

"RURAL COMMUNITIES

ARE SPECIAL FOR THAT

REASON; EVERYONE

CHIPS IN AND STAYS

POSITIVE."

Just when we thought winter was behind us, arecent cold blast

reminded us that we live in arather changeable climate. From gale

force Nor’ Wests to snow storms, it’s been amixed bag to keep us

all guessing. Abig thank you to our 3Waters and Roading teams,

who worked all hours around the clock to make sure water remained

in our taps, our toilets flushed, and fallen trees were cleared from

roads as quickly as possible. And an equally big thank you to

everyone in the community for your cooperation, patience,

information sharing, and getting out there and helping out where you

could. Rural communities are special for that reason; everyone

chips inand stays positive. May the storms be behind us now!

Hurunui District has its own fossil, the Waiparaconus. First discovered by Julius von Haast in 1871.

It is found in avertical bed of greensand rock, containing a'writhing' mass of tubular stems, each

between 10 -15cm long; they look like tips of asparagus spears.

community law advocates.

The governmenthas provided an extra

$3.5 millioninfundingtohelp Community

Law Centresaround the country with their

extraworkload related to Covid­19.

‘‘We knowthat it’s caused disruptionto

all sortsofpeople for all sorts of reasons.

We knowpeople’s employment has been at

risk and people have been losing jobs and

strugglingwiththeir pay,’’MrLittle said.

‘‘Theconsequence of Covid­19 is going to

take some time to wash through. Therewill

be employment issues,there will be family

issues, there will be all sorts of issues and

it’s goingtotake some timetowork

through them.

‘‘We haveagrowingproblem in New

Zealand with access to justice.The cost of

it is getting so great that unless you have a

claimthat’s worth tens of thousands of

dollars,the easything is to say ‘I can’tdo

this’.’’

Mr Little said CommunityLaw Centres

played avital role in making legal advice

and advocacy affordable, and he would

like to see funding set aside to allow for

free legal advicefor people whendealing

with ACC or tenancy issues.

‘‘Having represented people with their

ACC issues before, Iknow thatit’s an area

of law where if you don’t deal withthe

problemearly on, it can costeverybody.

‘‘I think there’s real valueinproperly

supporting the Community Law Centres

network rightacross the countryand I

thinkit’s somethingACC shouldbedoing.

‘‘It’s in their best interests and Ithink it

wouldbenefit everybodyand it’scertainly

something Iwill be pursuing.’’

Labour was committed to supporting

NorthCanterbury’s Covid­19 recovery,

both in terms of providingjobs and

supporting the community, Mr Littlesaid.

The Waimakariri district has received

$9m from the government’s ‘‘shovel ready’’

fund for flood protection workinKaiapoi.

‘‘That’s going to go along way to providing

jobs as well as providingbenefittothe

localcommunity,’’ Mr Rosewarnesaid.

Akeen cyclist, Mr Rosewarne saidhe

wouldbeasupporter should anotherlocal

‘‘shovel ready’’project, The Wheelsto

Waipara cycleway, get the go­ahead.

CanterburyCommunity Law solicitor

Katrina Hope said she encouraged people

to seek adviceinuncertaintimes.

‘‘Look for options, be aware of what your

rights are and seek legal advice,even preliminaryadvice,

to see where you stand.’’

Domesticviolence, care­of­children

matters, relationshipproperty, employment

issues, redundanciesand debt issues

have been themost commonissues this

year because of Covid­19.

‘‘I feelthatalot more will slowlytrickle

in the longer this goes on for, which may be

quitesome time,’’ Ms Hopesaid.

Would the outcomes of

the referendums become

Top alpacas to strut the show ring

The nationalalpaca show,

featuring stock fromeight North

Canterbury breeders, wasin

jeopardy because of Covid-19

restrictions. Themovetoalert

level 1means it can go ahead this

week at CanterburyAgricultural

Park. David Hill reports.

Kaiapoi alpaca breeder Kit Johnson is

relieved the National Alpaca Expo is

going ahead tomorrow (Friday).

Alpaca breeders from all over New

Zealand are set to converge on

Canterbury Agricultural Park for the

national show, which runs until Sunday.

The Alpacas Association of New

Zealand secretary and national show coconvenor

is thrilled with the entries of

250 animals and 200 fleeces after Covid­

19 had placed the event in doubt.

“It’s agood number considering

Covid­19,’’ Kit says.

‘‘The whole thing was in jeopardy for

awhile because one of the judges is

based in Auckland and we didn’t know if

he would get down.

“Considering everything that has gone

on in the world this year, we are

delighted to have 10 breeders coming

down from the North Island and others

who couldn’t make it have sent fleeces.”

The move to alert level 1also means

the public is welcome to attend the

show, which will be held on the National

Bank Lawn at the park.

“We haven’t done alot to promote the

show because of Covid­19, but it’s agood

public spectacle to see all the different

colours and hear the judges’ comments,

and there will be time to talk to

breeders,” Kit says.

The fleeces have

already been

judged, with the

results announced

this week.

The alpacas will

be housed in the

cattle pens for the

duration of the

show, with judging

to take place inside amarquee.

There are 22 different colours across

the two alpaca breeds —suri and

huacaya.

Over the years, North Canterbury

breeders have dominated the huacaya

classes, and around seven or eight local

breeders are lining up this weekend to

vie for honours.

There are about 40,000 alpacas in New

Zealand and nearly three million

worldwide, with around 10 percent suri

and the rest huacaya.

Huacaya alpacas are like “an

elongated sheep”, while the suri is

❛You need to benchmark

your animals and if you don't

known for its “dreadlock” fleece.

The low numbers and the diversity of

colours makes it difficult to establish an

alpaca industry in New Zealand, Kit

says.

Lower quality fibre makes about $15 a

kilogram and is used as aliner for

duvets, while top quality fleeces fetch

about $60 akilogram, with white the

dominant colour.

New Zealand breeders were known

for the quality of their animals, with top

alpacas in demand in Europe and Asia.

They are selling for $20,000 to $25,000.

after beating the

sheep and cattle to

win supreme

champion animal at

the Canterbury A&P Show.

But Kit says the competition is even

tougher these days and he will be

content to win afew classes and agegroup

competitions. He has 25 animals

and 30 fleeces entered.

“You need to benchmark your animals

and if you don’t have these shows, it’s

very hard to compare.

“We’ve only had one show prior to the

nationals so it’s hard to know how our

animals will go, and different judges

look for different things; and the climate

on the day can have an effect the

animal.”

Help at hand for farmers

around biodiversity issues

RURAL LIFE

North Canterbury News, October 1, 2020

37

By DAVID HILL

AUniversity of Canterbury

academic hopes an expanded

forestry programme to

support farmers will be just

the beginning.

Forestry Professor David

Norton has been an advocate

for having funded

biodiversity advisers to

support farmers and is

thrilled the Te Uru Rakau

(Forestry New Zealand)

funded Restoration

Ambassador programme has

been extended until June

next year.

‘‘The focus is to provide

independent, free advice on

how to do restoration

plantings and to help farmers

make applications to the One

Billion Trees programme,’’

he says.

Dr Adam Forbes, a

University of Canterbury

graduate who has worked

with the Post Quake Farming

Project in the Hurunui

district, has been the sole

restoration ambassador since

the programme began last

year and has now been joined

by Josh Foster, aforestry

science graduate.

‘‘He did his masters with

me and is pretty switched on

when it comes to

biodiversity,’’ Professor

Norton said of Mr Foster.

‘‘Adam and Josh don’t work

❛The focus is to provide independent, free advice

on how to do restorationplantings.❜

for councils or DOC (the

Department of Conservation),

and they’re not coming from a

regulatory perspective, so

farmers don’t have to feel

threatened.’’

Professor Norton hopes the

One Billion Trees

programme will continue

beyond the election and will

lead to other funded

programmes to offer farmers

advice on biodiversity.

‘‘We are asking farmers to

do all this stuff to improve

biodiversity. Sure, they are

farming the land, but we are

asking them to do apublic

good and this is away we can

help farmers.

‘‘Farmers are not

ecologists and the worry is

there’s only ahandful of

people with the expertise to

write the biodiversity part of

farm environment plans.

Most ecologists don’t know

farming and most farm

advisers aren’t ecologists.’’

Professor Norton is

involved in an application to

the Ministry for Primary

Industries’ sustainable food

and fibre futures fund to

develop an online resource

—Forestry Professor David Norton

aimed at farmers to provide

advice on biodiversity and

writing farm environment

plans.

‘‘I really believe that we

can somehow move away

from aregulatory environment,

which is turning

farmers off.

‘‘A cheap investment would

be to employ 20 Adams (Adam

Forbes) and have them out

there offering advice and we

would make the changes we

want and still enjoy our

lattes.’’

Having asecond

restoration adviser means Dr

Forbes can focus on the

North Island, where he is

based, while Christchurchbased

Mr Foster will focus on

the South Island, Professor

Norton says.

‘‘There’s huge interest

from farmers needing advice

on how to establish native

forests. Having two people in

the role will mean more free

and independent advice can

be provided to farmers, iwi

and others in rural New

Zealand on how to carry out

good quality, planned

ecological restoration.’’

Contest plans likely

to withstand Covid

By DAVID HILL

Planning is on track for the 2021 FMG

Young Farmer of the Year contest,

with district contests due to begin this

weekend.

New Zealand Young Farmers

(NZYF) is confident the district

contests, the first of which will be held

on Saturday, can be held at either

alert level 1or2,after adisrupted year

when the annual contest was

cancelled for the first time in its

51­year history because of Covid­19.

‘‘At level 2wewould have some

protocols in place around managing

social distance or even having

spectators and contact tracing and

sanitiser would be in place,’’ an NZYF

spokesperson said.

Organisers acknowledge there will

be difficulties if the country has to

move to alert level 3or4again.

‘‘But, for the district contests, you

are generally talking about pretty

small numbers, so we think we can

manage that,’’ the spokesperson said.

Protocols are still being worked out

so regional finals can go ahead if the

country or local regions are in level 2

at the time.

Regional finals, which will be held

from February to April, also include

the FMG Junior Young Farmer of the

Year and AgriKids regional

competitions, so attract much bigger

crowds.

The first district contests, this

weekend, will be in the Maniototo

(Otago/Southland region) and the

Waikato/Bay of Plenty region.

The Tasman region contests are

scheduled to be held on October 18

(Tasman south) and November 14

(Tasman north).

Some of the venues are still being

finalised after the recent cancellation

of A&P shows.

The 2021 grand final is scheduled to

be held in Christchurch in July, after

the region missed out on hosting this

year’s showpiece.

Contingencies are being

considered to manageany

Covid­19 restrictions, but

Michaela says the organising

committee is keentomark its

70th anniversary.

“It was sad thatthe

Canterbury A&P Showwas

understandablycancelledthis

will be the firstmajor

agricultural gathering of its size

to takeplaceinCanterbury post

The event is renowned for its

live demonstrations and will

increase the size of this area to

showcase large and small gear,

says committee member

AndrewStewart, who farmsat

Waikuku, north of Woodend.

“We see our event as the

perfect place for exhibitors to

demonstrate their equipment

and developments to as many

peopleaspossible.

“With that in minditmade

sense to offer alarger space to

see their equipment in full flight

and to expand thattosome of

the smaller equipment

exhibitors.’’

He sees the event as an

opportunity for farmersand

contractors to engage in all sorts

of commerce over acouple of

days, as wellasaplace for them

to get off­farm and enjoy time

with their mates.”

Around10hectares of

irrigated landhas beenset

aside to grow amix of barley

stubble, green feed oats,grass

and lucerne, to offer arange of

exhibitors the chance to

showcase their new equipment,

Andrewsays. “We will have

ploughs, large one­pass

cultivators,drills,mowers,

rakes, tedders, balers, forage

harvesters,sprayers and all

sorts of equipment on display.

‘‘Because it’s over three days

as well, it meanspotential

buyerscan take their time and

make any decisions without

feeling rushed.”

Entries are openfor

exhibitors.Should it be

cancelledbecause of Covid 19,

the organising committee

undertakes to provide afull

Many farmers still have slow internet -survey

Most urbanNew Zealanders

can get on the information

superhighway at speed, but the

latest connectivity survey by

Federated Farmers shows too

many rural families and

businessesremain stuck in

second gearonapotholed

back­road.

Its president and telecommunications

spokesman

Andrew Hoggardsaid there

were nearly 900 responses

from members from every farm

type and geographical spread,

but abitter ironywas that

several more couldn’t

completethe on­line questions

because their internetaccess

was too poor.

About68percent of

respondents had download

speeds of 20Mbpsorless, and

nearly 24% wereenduring

speeds of just 0­5Mbps.

‘‘While around athird are on

unlimited downloadmonthly

plans, many of thoseoncapped

planscomplain they’d liketo

go unlimited buttheir ISP —

oftentheironly choice of ISP

—doesn’tprovide thatoption.

‘‘It’s interestingthat a

number of respondents told us

thatduring the level4lockdownsome

providers

extended unlimited downloads

to them.This wouldseem to

indicate it’s not technical

issues gettinginthe way of

offering unlimited plans to

these rural clients,’’ he says.

Mobile coverage remainsa

concern, with around one in

three farms indicating onlyup

to 50% of their farmgets a

connection.Not farshort of a

quarter get 25% of farm

coverage or less.

‘‘And yet 92% of these

farmers had asmartphone, and

around75% told us they use

smartphoneapps to support

the farmbusiness.’’

While improvements were

noted since the organisation’s

2019survey,itwas usually only

by apercent or two.

‘‘The task ahead is less oneof

pushing broadband intoever

moreisolated and remote

locations and more one of

addressingthe gaps in

coverage andconstraintson

capacity of earlier builds,’’ he

says. ‘‘More targeted investmenttowards

bespoke builds

would go along way towards

addressingconnection speed

and reliability concerns.’’

Competition is aconcern,

withmany membersfinding

theyhave only one provider

and have to take it or leave it as

regards price and service.

‘‘We’ve got to achieve faster

improvementsinthis space.’’

Manynew technologies

employedonfarms,whether

cloud softwareorsmartphone

applications, require good

connectivity.

Farmersare also

increasingly expected to

engage electronically with

business servicesand

government agencies,such as

banks,IRD and local councils.

Rugby powerhouses ... Harris McRobbie, left, and James Mullan have been selected for the New

Zealand Rugby Barbarians Under 18 squad for 2020.

Rangiora pair selected

for Barbarians squad

The recent success and

development of the Rangiora

High School rugby

programme has seen James

Mullan and Harris McRobbie

selected for the New Zealand

Rugby Barbarians Under 18

squad for 2020.

Both have been in the

Rangiora High School 1st XV

for three years and both have

50 caps for the team,

including playing in two UC

Championship semi­finals

and the National Co­ed final

in 2018.

James, the team’s hooker

and this year’s captain, and

Harris, aprop, are part of a

dominant forward pack for

the school this season, which

is no surprise given that

head coach Craig Mullan is

an admirer and clever

technician of the ‘‘dark art’’

of front­row play.

Both players are dedicated

leaders with astrong

ambition to go further with

their rugby after they finish

school.

The pair worked hard in

the off season, as well as

through the disruptive

lockdown, to ensure they got

the most out of this restricted

season.

Both are big contributors

to the team on and off the

field.

It is the 10th year the 1st

XV has played in the top

Crusader School’s 1st XV

competition (UC

Championship), and while

other co­educational schools

have had to combine to stay

competitive, Rangiora High

School has flourished, with

strong coaching and

management of the local

talent pool.

James and Harris will

assemble in Hamilton

following the regional Junior

Crusaders Camp in

Christchurch.

They will play in aone­off

fixture involving the Andy

Haden XV and Alan Whetton

XV on Friday, October 9.

Rangiora High School

team­mates Tamatoa

Nicholas and Charlee

Barrett were also selected,

along with James and Harris,

for the Junior Crusaders

Camp.

This success follows on

from old boys Fletcher

Newell who is currently

playing for Canterbury in the

Mitre 10 cup, Jermaine Pepe,

who played for the New

Zealand Under 18

Barbarians in 2019, and

George Prain, who toured

Australia with the New

Zealand Secondary Schools’

team in 2018.

Sadly, James and Harris

will not get this opportunity

because of Covid­19 border

restrictions.

Division 3men in a

fairytale comeback

HOCKEY

From wooden spooners just acouple of

years ago, Rangiora Hockey Club’s

Division 3men’s team has triumphed in

its grade. It won the Canterbury Hockey

Division 3competition last weekend

with a2­1 win over top qualifiers

Southern United.

The team has been steadily building

over previous winter competitions and

was able to field aconsistent and quality

line­up that lost just four games through

the Covid­shortened season.

It is hoped that with the increasing

depth in the men’s side of the club,

Rangiora Hockey will be able to field

Division 1, 2and 3men’s teams next year

to match the women’s line­up.

Meanwhile, the Platinum Boys Ateam

achieved ameasure of redemption by

winning the Platinum Division 2title in

ashootout with Avon.

The team, which had alimited preseason

because of the Covid­19

lockdown, was relegated earlier in the

season after astring of hefty losses.

However, the team dominated

Division 2, scoring 89 goals and

conceding only four in 10 games leading

up to the final.

Against Avon in the final, the teams

were locked 3­all at the end of regular

time, with apenalty shootout deciding

the division winner. Rangiora’s goalkeeper

Joshua Ball was able to keep out

acouple of Avon’s shootout attempts,

while his team­mates missed only one of

their goal shots to give the side the win

and the division title. Rangiora’s

Platinum Bteams finished 4th in

Division 2.

The Hurunui Rangiora Mid Week

women play HSOB/Burnside in the

finals of their Division 2competition

this week (after publication deadline).

After finishing the round­robin in third,

the team put on astrong showing against

Southern in the semi­final, with its 3­1

win booking the side aplace against

HSOB —ateam it met three times

through the season for one win, one loss

and adraw.

Meanwhile, the Rangiora Allsorts mid

week men’s team again struggled to

convert dominance into goals against

Southern United in its battle to avoid the

Division 2wooden spoon. Fortunately,

the side found the net later in the game

to record acomfortable but frustrating

5­1 win.

Changes to Bus Routes and Timetables

Changes to Metro bus routes and timetables

are being rolled out this week, which will see the

1Rangiora -Cashmere (Blue Line) and the 95

Pegasus/Waikuku -City use different routes. Anew

97 Rangiora -Pegasus service also started from

Monday 28 September.

The Blue Line bus route changes mean that some

bus stops will be permanently moved, and bus users

are advised to take alook at the new routes and

timetables before they head out tocatch the bus.

Akey change for the 1Rangiora –Cashmere (Blue

Line) is that the service will travel via Williams

Street and Lineside Road. InRangiora, the service

will now use West Belt and Kingsbury Avenue to

access King Street rather than Enverton Drive. It

will continue touse the existing terminus on Ashley

Street in Rangiora. The service will continue to

operate at its current frequencies.

The 95 Pegasus/Waikuku –City service will travel

via Silverstream to Pegasus, operating half-hourly

at peak times on weekdays and hourly at all other

times. The service includes one trip on weekday

mornings and aernoons, diverting to Kaiapoi High

School so students can continue to access the

school. There will be one trip in the morning from

Waikuku, and two back in the aernoon/evening.

Temporary signage is in place until our contractors

complete the permanent installations, which

should be by early October. Bear with us as we

work to have all permanent signage in place by

early October.

The changes are aresult of the Waimakariri

Service Review, which was carried out by

Environment Canterbury in May and July last year.

The review looked at how the existing bus service

could be tailored to cover abigger area in our

Rangiora and Kaiapoi towns, and to provide better

connections between townships across the District.

Help Shape How Council Engages

The Council isupdating its Significance and

Engagement Policy –the document which details

how the organisation engages with the community.

We want to ensure the decisions made reflect

the aspirations of tangata whenua, residents,

ratepayers, community groups and business.

To help us to make the best decisions, Council

engages with our communities every day in a

number ofdifferent ways. Sometimes, this is us

providing information, and other times wedirectly

seek input into the decision-making processes.

Our Significance and Engagement Policy helps us

by doing two main things:

1. It outlines for the Council and the community

how wedecide what issues, proposals, decisions,

assets and activities are significant

2. Sets out how and when communities can expect

to input into council decision-making processes.

The primary update to the policy is to include

additional methods of engagement. The

consultation is open until 26October and you can

have your say at waimakariri.govt.nz/letstalk
