Fears as river blaze raged

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Kelvin and Kerryn Clark were on

tenterhooks on Sunday as awind­fanned

fire raged along the Hurunui River,

forcing the precautionary evacuation of

the Hurunui rivermouth bach

community.

The Rangiora couple could do little

but wait for reports on the fire, which

began after an old burn flared up,

pushed along by astrong nor’wester.

Kerryn said it was unnerving waiting

for news in Rangiora, but they were

relieved when word reached them that

people staying in their bach near the

mouth had made it out safely.

Their holiday home was safe.

Six helicopters, urban and rural

volunteer fire brigades, and a20­tonne

digger tackled the blaze that raced down

the north bank of the Hurunui River and

through three farms.

It was eventually stopped about 12

hours after it started, having burnt

within 2km of the settlement.

Principal Rural Fire Officer for

Canterbury Bruce Janes said quelling

the fire was agreat collaborative effort,

with the urban brigades from Waipara

and Cheviot looking after assets and

home protection, while the rural

brigades worked in the riverbed.

The three farmers involved were also

very helpful to firefighters.

The fire was reported about 6am,

starting where afarmer had undertaken

aburn afew days earlier.

‘‘It was so windy it started 20 fires,

which were separated by green grass

from pastures, which was the saving

grace,’’ Mr Janes said.

‘‘It was the bestline­up we haveever

had,’’ said organiser Karl Horwarth.

However, after rescheduling four

timesbecauseofCovid 19 restrictions,

extreme weather warnings and an

unplanned clash with school holidays,

attendance was down on last year.

‘‘It was disappointing to seethe

numbers down, but the feedback from

thosewho did come has been

awesome.’’

Brackenfields complex for sale

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The Brackenfields shopping

precinct in Amberley is for

sale.

The property, ownedbya

syndicateoflocal investors,

went on the marketthis week.

The shopping centre—the

land and buildings only—

includes a3564­square­metre

Countdown Supermarket and

retail stores. It is for sale by

deadlineprivatetreaty, with

offers due by November 5

unless sold prior.

Tim Rookes, the managing

director of real estate firm

CBRE Christchurch, says there

is 5790sqm of lettable area on a

27,021sqm sitewhich fronts on

to Carters Road (State

Highway 1), withaccess alsooff

Amberley Beach Road.

He says demandfor

supermarket­anchored

investments is at an all­time

highinthe Covid era, given

thatthey are tenantsthat

provide an essentialservice.

‘‘CBRE has beeninstructed

to sell the landand buildingsas

atenanted investment,’’ he

says.

‘‘Weare not aware of any

tenant movement within the

centre.’’

Mr Rookessays the climate

for commercialsales is pretty

tough.

However,therehad been

unprecedented resultsinthe

commercialsales spacethis

year.

This was notwithstanding

the arrival of Covid­19, with

recordsalesinChristchurch,

numerous inquiriesonone

property asset worth more

than $5m, and morethan 212

qualified parties enquiring

about the TerraceDowns golf

resort, which soldrecently.

‘‘We are seeingareal spike

in owner­occupierenquiry,

fuelled by low interest rates

and the likelihood of negative

interest.

‘‘We have also seen the

introduction of the ‘essential

service’ tag, which is seen as

valuable as agovernment

tenant.’’

Thisapplied to Brackenfields,

with Countdownasthe

anchor tenant. ‘‘As such,

expectBrackenfields to attract

goodnational interestas

supermarket­anchored

investments are seldom

available for purchase.’’

The centre openedinMay

2014, with acore group of about

halfadozen retail outlets

joining Countdown.

However, asmall numberof

other tenants have quit, and

someretail spaces havenever

beentenanted in the past6 1 ⁄2

years.

The centre has plentiful

parking,and at one time there

School pupil’s contribution to

restoringChristchurch’s Avon

Riverwas remembered

during awalk on Sunday.

Evan Smith, who died last

August, was born in 1951 and

raised in Kaiapoi. He was

instrumental in efforts to turn

the Christchurch red zone

around the banks of the Avon

Riverinto apark.

Participants in the annual

GreatOtakaro AvonRiver

Walk stopped at aformer culde­sac

off River Road in

Richmond, where Mr Smith

and his familylived for many

yearsuntilitwas red­zoned,

to hear from membersofthe

Avon Otakaro Network

(AvON), which he co­founded.

‘‘I think of this as the ‘Evan

zone’and he’sleft his mark

everywhere really,’’ AvON

secretary­treasurer Sarah

Butterfield says.

‘‘As you come aroundthe

The bach community was

evacuated by the Hurunui

Defence team because of the

high risk of the fire running

down terraces directly into

the village.

Aspecialist dangerous

tree team was on site on

Monday, felling burnt trees

afantastic example of how

Evan collaborated withlots of

people.

Walk leaderMark Gibson,

who co­founded AvON with

Mr Smith, recalled the latter’s

efforts to save red­zone trees.

‘‘Early on Evan realised

they were bringingthe

bulldozers in and just

and keeping awary eye on

any flares­ups as the high

winds returned.

Mr Janes urges anyone

with old burns to check

them. There is no legal

requirement, but it made

good sense, he said.

An ongoing series of

north­west winds is lifting

the fire risk across the

region.

Awoolly adventure unfolds

Local author Jennifer

Somervell, who is behind the

award­winning TalesFrom

the Farm series, launched

her sixth bookinOxford on

Saturday.

More than 80 people

attended, including Peter

Carrell, the Anglican Bishop

of Christchurch, who

described ABaa­rilliant

Adventure,as‘‘a brilliant retelling

of the famous story of

the shepherds’ visit to

Bethlehem’’.

The book is not atale from

the farm likeJennifer’s

other books, but atale from

Israel, inspiredbyavisitby

Jennifer to that nation in

2011.

‘‘I imagined the angel

appearing to shepherds and

their sheepinthe fields

outside Bethlehem, and I

thought, ‘what happened to

the sheep? Wouldn’t they

followtheir shepherds?’ ’’

Adramatic adventure

results, as threesheep,

Rumbly, Tumbly and Woolly,

stumble after their

shepherds in the dark.

In keepingwith the

nativity­sheepthemeofthe

book, the mostpopular guest

for the 30 or so children at

the launch was Sooty, a

South Suffolk crossbred

lamb.

Children were entertained

by sheep­making, stardecorating,

colouring­in

activities,and face­painting

animals from the book.

Jennifer waited seven

years for the rightillustrator.

‘‘I needed an illustrator

who could capture emotion

and facial expression,

including in sheep.’’

She met her Southland

illustrator, Zerika van

Jaarsveld, in early 2019 at

the Oxford Baptist Church.

‘‘Fromthe momentIsaw

her first pictures,Iknew the

book would be special. They

were outstanding.’’

Thoughthe story is

imaginative,itisset in an

accurate historic setting.

“I didn’twant white faces

and Romney lambs. We

neededthe right breed of

sheep —fat­tailed —and

clothing and footwear that

could havebeen worn 2000

years ago by Middle Eastern

shepherds.”

Help was sought from a

scholar in Israel to clarify

pictures.

Jennifer’s husband, Ken

Fletcher, researched the

non­fiction end section,

explaining the real nativity

history, and the close

relationship betweensheep

and shepherds of the time.

“There are layers in this

book. On one level it can be

read as adramatic storyof

rescue.But it alsospeaks of

the good shepherd and what

that means.”

Early polling places an hour away for some

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Voters keen to castanearly vote this week

in the generalelection face an hour­long

journey each way if theylive in some

partsofthe Hurunui district.

Voting facilitiesinthe district are not

available untilthis Saturday, meaning a

trip to Rangiora or Kaikoura for those

needing to votebeforethen.

Bill Blain, from Greta Valley, is

incredulous there are no voting booths in

the Hurunuidistrict, which is in the

Kaikouraelectorate,for residents to vote

beforeSaturday. He believes it is an

oversight and lacks common sense.

Mr Blainhas brought thematter to the

attention of the Electoral Commission

and MinisterofJustice AndrewLittle, but

is resigned to the fact his wife will haveto

traveltofindapolling booth before she

heads away ‘‘intothe bush’’before

facilitiestovote earlyopen on Saturday

throughoutthe district.

Maps availableonline on the Electoral

Commission’s website show an

abundance of earlyvoting booths, but they

confirm that Saturday is the earliest

peoplecan vote withinthe Hurunui.

In Rangiora, there are facilitiesinthe

shoppingcomplex nearthe Warehouse to

castanearly vote todayright up until

Friday, October16. Opening timesvary.

In Kaiapoi, early votescan be cast at

the Kaiapoi Co­operating Parish each day

until Friday next week,but hoursvary.

Voters heading north to Kaikoura can

voteevery day until October16, but,once

again, voters needtocheckthe map for

times the booth is open.

Additionalbooths will be available in

all three towns, but at the weekend only.

An eye to the coast

The Hurunui District council has been

engaging in recent weekswith our

coastal communities to listenand work

together to understand the potential

consequences of our changing coastal

environment.

The council, like others across New

Zealand, has arangeofresponsibilities

set out in legislation that requires it to

look 100 years into the future.

It is therefore critical thatwework

together to understand the issues and

develop aplan that provides certainty

and direction for future decisions.

It is important thatthose wholive in

the coastal environment share their

knowledge as this will be valuable in

direction­setting.

Jacobs Consultancy has identified

what coastal hazards may or maynot be

an issue in 30, 50 and 100 years from

now.

Further opportunities for public

consultation will be confirmed during

November and it has been agreed that a

series of drop­in sessions willbe

hosted. Communication can also be

provided online at hurunui.govt.nz/

find/coastal­conversations or by

contacting the team by email on

coastal@hurunui.govt.nz.

Iwould like to acknowledge the work

of the council’s Three Waters team,

Candidates voice

support for NGOs

By DAVID HILL

Candidates at an election forum last

week say they are committed to

supporting social services in North

Canterbury.

The online forum, organised by

Social Services Waimakariri, was

different from most local forums as it

focused on the provision of social

services in rural areas rather than

being specific to the local electorate.

Candidates from several political

parties were invited to provide a

candidate, but just three logged in,

with Matt Doocey representing

National, Dan Rosewarne

representing Labour, and Gerrie

Ligtenberg stepping in for the Green

Party.

All three candidates agreed that

non­governmental organisations

(NGOs), which fulfill government

contracts in their local areas, were

under­funded and saw aneed for more

social workers to be employed in rural

communities.

Mr Rosewarne says recent research

shows NGOs are funded for just twothirds

of their actual costs.

‘‘This has given the Labour Party

some figures to work with, but Covid­

19 has added ahuge layer of

complexity.’’

Labour was committed to increasing

funding to NGOs to meet their costs

and to reduce the ‘‘pay parity gap’’

between NGO staff and state sector

employees, Mr Rosewarne said.

Mr Doocey questioned whether it

was possible for central government to

fully fund NGOs.

‘‘There’s aslight irony that it is

going to be more difficult financially,

sustainably for NGOs, but there’s

going to be increased need and Ithink

it’s incumbent on the government of

the day to understand about how they

can resource the NGO sector as afirst

line of defence.

‘‘Because we know that if you can

get to people earlier before they

develop either an entrenched

behaviour or asense of crisis, then you

can keep them out of statutory

services.’’

Ms Ligtenberg said it was time for

NGOs to be properly funded for their

contracted services.

‘‘The Green Party believes that

where there is awill there’s away. It’s

very easy to say that you are unable to

pay for everything, but that’s actually

not true.’’

Covid­19 is an opportunity to do

something different, but it also

exposed inflexibilities in existing

systems and exacerbated pre­existing

issues, the retired nurse said.

‘‘It (the social sector) needs to be

fully funded and it needs to be

necessary that there is pay equity.

‘‘You cannot say that you want a

highly experienced nurse or social

worker and then say they are worth

less than someone who is working in a

hospital.

‘‘And this is only atemporary cost,

because if you create an inclusive

society by having services available

from early childhood and people have

adequate incomes, you will save alot

of cost in the health service by

preventing people becoming sick.’’

He says thereare three main

foodbanks, at Waikari, Waipara and

out of acommunity response during the

Covid­19 lock down.

Mr Hornblow is working with

Waimakariri organisations in abid to get

acohesiveapproach to food gathering

and storage.

However, more needs to be done in the

area of food forests and working with

supermarkets to secure aconsistent

supply of food.

‘‘We are now working on acollective

Jamie Arbuckle

NZ First Kaikoura Candidate

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.

After years ofrenovations and living

in cold damp rentals, Sarah and Nick

Hoffman’s dream was tohave ahome in

which to watch their future family grow up

in.

They both agreed that when the day came

to build their dream home, itwould be

done properly.

Almost all the companies they went to

presented them with abook of plans as

aplace tostart. They were told “these

are our plans, this is our spec, so if you

makes changes, then there isachange in

the fee’’ or “once you make changes after

this point, then we have to charge you a

modification fee’’.

Feeling frustrated and unhappy with

what they were being offered, Sarah

went searching for acompany they felt

comfortable with. She discovered Build7 Christchurch.

Sarah and Nick meet with construction manager Jamie Cowan and were

presented with ablank sheet ofpaper and asked to write down their

wish list for their dream home.

He asked them tolist things they really wanted "that will make the home

work for you and your family both now and into the future’’.

Jokingly Nick asked where the plan book was. Jamie replied Build7 did

not use them, "as we never build the same design twice’’.

On presentation of the first concept anestimate, Sarah and Nick

were pleasantly surprised with just how different Build7’s home

was compared to the others that were offered. It was clear Build7

had listened, understood and translated their wants into abeautiful,

architecturally, designed home.

With the design close, itwas time to start thinking about construction. Sarah and Nick had heard stories from friends

and family about the stress of building, and that being on site consistently each week was the only way to make sure

that things were being done right.

To add anextra complication, Sarah was now pregnant with the couple’s first child, and the due date was expected to

be exactly onthe scheduled complete date. Stress levels were high for both ofthem. Nick told Build7 they had to be in

the home before their son was born. Jamie took it in his stride.

There were things during the build that did not goright. The difference

was Jamie knew about them before Nick and Sarah did, event hough

they were onsite every week. When Jamie told them about the issues,

he also told them he had asolution which hefelt would suit them both.

To his word, they moved intotheir new home on schedule. Charlie was

born aweek later.

After reflecting on the exciting and fun building process, coupled with

the extra pressure ofpregnancy, Sarah and Nick knew they had found

something special with Build7.

During Covid-19, Nick’s job asanairline pilot was injeopardy. The family faced alot of uncertainty about whether he

would retain his job. One day they received aphone call from Jamie, who asked if they would like to come on board as

sales partners inBuild7 for the North Canterbury region.

Nick and Sarah never dreamed they would have been able tobuild anarchitecturally designed home with their budget

and enjoy the process. They wanted others to experience what they had in building their new home.

So Nick and Sarah are now helping bring dreams to life for clients inNorth Canterbury.

If you are looking for honesty, transparency, and something that you can truly be proud of living in, come and talk to

Nick and Sarah today.

Call for better funding

By DAVID HILL

Advocateshave called for more funding for

social servicesinNorthCanterbury as the

country goes to the polls.

Affordable and healthy housing, poverty,

funding for mental health services, climate

action and investment in Maori family

education,income,healthand housing are

election prioritiesfor North Canterbury’s

social service agencies.

Barnados rural social worker Sandy

Honeybonesays rural areassuch as the

Waimakariri and Hurunui are particularly

disadvantaged when it comes to accessing

central government­funded services.

‘‘Barnados always has lengthy delays for

services in NorthCanterbury as we have

available funding for onlyone full­time

social worker.Yet in the Waimakariri and

Hurunui areaswehave seen multiple

setbacks which have impacted wellbeing.

‘‘We would like to see afuturewhere

everychild growing up in this country has

what theyneed to thrive, so we believe we

need to put children at the core of the

election.’’

Waimakariri Age­Friendly Advisory

Groupchairwoman Joanne Gumbrellsees

climate changeasthe biggest election

issue.

‘‘We older people despairfor the lives of

the youngergeneration and the world they

will inherit.

‘‘We fearfor our grandchildren and their

descendants, and mental health has

become abig issue.

‘‘From all of theseemergesthe fact that

the number one issue is climate change.

Everything else willbetrivial unless the

worldattendstothat nowand New

Zealand must playits part.’’

Joanne says Waimakaririhas an ageing

populationbut many olderpeopledonot

have access to adequate, affordable,

secure and warm housing.

‘‘Retirement villages are therefor those

who can afford it, while rentals are often

expensiveand/or sub­standard, and with

no support systems shouldweneed them.

‘‘We older people want to be heard, we

want to live well, we want to participate,

continuetolearnand to use our skills.

‘‘We wanttofeel safe when we walk

alongour streets. No cycles and scooters in

town centres please.’’

She alsocalls for fair pay for all health

and care workers.

Culverden water scheme gets ministry tick

The first Water SafetyPlan approved

yearsbythe team.

‘‘Theteam’s effort is outstanding, and

Anew­generation of

arrived in Cheviot.

Anew first­response unit

(FRU),the firstofits typein

North Canterbury, is now

housedatthe Cheviot St

John headquarters.

Its purchase was made

possible by the generosity of

Eric Seelan, who died

earlier thisyear and lefta

donation to St John.

The new Volkswagen

vehicle is designed

specifically for volunteer

teams,such as Cheviot.

Past and present members

of St Johngathered recently

for its dedication.

Founding members,

current crewmembers,the

area committee, and

Hurunui District Mayor

Marie Black attended.

Since receiving the FRU

Young people raise their key election issues

By DAVID HILL

Mental wellbeing, access to transport,

climate changeand youth employment

are the leading issuesfor young people

goinginto theelection.

Waimakariri Youth Councilmembers

HollyDuff and Sasha Crawford

addressed election candidates lastweek

aboutissues facing young people.

Youthaged12to14number morethan

9000 in the Waimakariri district.

Hollysays Covid­19 had taken atoll on

youthmental wellbeing and was

impacting on NCEA assessments,which

addedtoanxiety levels.

‘‘This is especially important with

Covid­19 expectedtodoublemental

health issuesamongst youth.

‘‘[Mediareports have indicated]the

past decadesaw arapidand concerning

rise in youth mental distress and suicide

rates, and that the Covid­19 effects are

likelytobeextensive and enduring.

‘‘Manyofmyfriendsare stressed, as

duringthe lockdown we had to rush

through assessments and so got lowerthan­expected

results.’’

Alackofaccesstotransport means

many young are missingout on ‘‘forming

connections withfellow youth’’,

employment opportunitiesand

participatinginsports, community and

council run events, Holly said.

Sasha saidthe youthcouncil had

identified youth employmentasakey

issue,with alack of work experience

opportunities and concerns around

healthand safety and youth pay rates.

‘‘Lastyear therewas ayouth employment

expo which was well attended. I

attended it and thought it was very worthwhile,

so good things are happening, but

there was asetback this year.’’

The youthcouncil’s survey in 2018

found thatyoung people ‘‘care alot about

the local environment and protecting it

forfuturegenerations,’’ shesaid.

Hawarden Youth Council member

Bradley White said wellbeing was a

challenging subject for youth, ‘‘letalone

being in arural area’’. Finding atrusted

individual to talk to was alwaysa

challenge, he said.

‘‘I’d liketosee more youthful

counsellors/youth workers come into the

industry who are able to have that

connectionwith youngpeople, but still

being withinthe sameage demographic

where it’s not awkwardtohave ayarn.’’

The pressure of expectations of NCEA

can take atoll, he said,with burn­out a

major issue.

The decision followed

During earthquake

strengthening of the

facade, it was revealed

more strengthening work

on the building was

needed, so adecision was

made to consider options.

attached to the historic

chambers building. There

is also afour­bay open

shed and adepot built in

the 1970s, and three small

Mr Sturgeon will be

responsible for overseeing

the $9.8m development of

Wakatu Quay and the $1.1m

Apassion for cars

Fixing cars is more than ajob for the

passionate team at Autotech Servicesin

Rangiora.

Autotech Services has been lookingafter

cars in NorthCanterbury since 1993,

servicingeverything fromclassic cars to

the latest European models.

Receptionist Nicole Summerfield says

Autotech offers aspecialist service for

European cars, meaning localresidents do

not needtogointo Christchurch.

‘‘We haveall the diagnostic tools and we

just upgraded them,soitsaves people

having to go into Christchurch,and we can

usually access the parts cheaperthan the

dealers are selling them for.’’

The Autotech team includes specialist

European car mechanic Dan and

apprenticeMatt,who is being trainedon

all the intricacies of European models.

‘‘It’s Dan’s forte. He loves the European

cars and he ownsaEuropean car, so he’s

rightinto it,’’ Nicole says.

‘‘They are veryunique in the way they’re

made,but Dan has beendoing it for along

time.He’s got alot of experience and he

likesdealing with the people. He’s really

good at explainingitinlayman’s terms.’’

Dan trainedonEuropean cars and is

familiar with issuesfor different makes.

Computersystems on the cars can make

them more complicated than other makes,

such as Toyota, but the diagnostic gear at

Autotech can unlock mostmysteries.

‘‘It’sthe closest thing you get to the

factory equipment, so we can do pretty

much everything,’’ Dansays. ‘‘I like

everything about them(European cars).

They are justbetter.Better design, better

build and better quality, and they’re just

bettertodrive.

‘‘The thoughtprocess that’sgone into

designing themhas beentop notch.’’

Nicolesays the Covid­19 situation means

there can be adelay in getting parts from

Europe. ‘‘It can take aminimum of two

weeks to getparts fromFrance, but we do

have free loan carsand we don’t mind

loaning them for that two­week wait.

‘‘We try to make it as easy for people as

we can so they’renot inconvenienced.’’

Corridor work impresses

By DAVID HILL

Dan Gordon is impressed by

progress on theChristchurch

Northern Corridor.

The WaimakaririMayorwas

joined by HurunuiMayor Marie

Black andWaimakariridistrict

and Christchurch city councillors

and council staffinaninspection

of developments on StateHighway

1north of Christchurch and into

the city.

‘‘I was reallyimpressedwith

their project management.It’sa

big project with new(flyover)

bridges andsubways,’’MrGordon

says. ‘‘For our district,it’s goingto

be agame­changer,particularly

with thecycleway.’’

The$290 million project,

scheduled forcompletion in

December, includes the triplelaning

of the northern motorway

forboth northbound and

southbound trafficbetween

Belfast andTramroads,

strengtheningofbridges, thefourlaning

of CranfordStin

Christchurch,and the Belfast­to­

Kaiapoi cycleway.

Thethirdsouthboundlane will

be ahigh occupancy lane, for

multi­passenger vehicles and

buses.

Mr Gordon wasparticularly

impressedwith thesteel beams

placed underthe State Highway 1

WaimakaririRiver road bridge.

‘‘It’smaking surethe

Waimakariribridge is goingtobe

safer and last foralongtime.’’

‘‘I’m veryimpressed with where

There is also an extensive

landscaping project, with630,000

Bureau worried by

digital exclusion

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The Citizens Advice

Bureau in North

Canterbury is concerned

at adrive to get people to

access government

services online.

Chairwoman Margaret

Finnie says the bureau is

concerned that

government services are

being withdrawn from

communities.

The service wants local

parliamentary hopefuls

to commit to ensuring

public services remain

accessible to everyone.

‘‘People of all ages are

coming to us stressed and

frustrated about their

experiences of trying to

access government

services. It’s getting

harder to access human

support from government

agencies, but people’s

need for face­to­face

services is as real as

ever,’’ she says.

‘‘While online services

are great for some people,

the drive towards onlineonly

is leaving some of the

most vulnerable members

of the community

behind.’’

Many individuals

sought support from the

bureau because they

needed access to face­toface

services, paperbased

resources, and

empathetic human

connection.

Earlier this year, a

report by the Citizens

Advice Bureau made it

clear the public sector

relied heavily on the

goodwill of the bureau

and volunteers to fill the

gap from the

government’s withdrawal

from face­to­face and

paper­based service

delivery.

Election candidates are

being asked to support

the recommendations of

the report, particularly to

pledge support to leaving

no­one behind through

ensuring steps are taken

to address the digital

exclusion.

The bureau also wants

public services accessible

to all through off­line

channels, and for its

branches to be

compensated through

being properly funded to

meet the demands as a

result of government

services going online.

It is also asking the

public to get behind a

petition. Apaper copy is

available at the bureau in

Percival Street, Rangiora,

in the Trevor Inch

Memorial library.Phone

Ashowcase of inspiration

The Hurunui Garden Festival is acelebration

of inspirational gardens, coupled with the

hospitality of their owners, and the people of

the Hurunui district.

The festival which runs from Thursday,

October 29 to Sunday, November 1, will

showcase 17 gardens, two self-driven tours

off the beaten track, and garden-based

events to educate and entertain. The gardens

are open from 9am to 5pm each day.

The popularity of the annual event has

grown since being launched in 2018, and the

district is preparing to host abounty ofvisitors

keen to enjoy gardens from Amberley to Gore

Bay, and Hawarden to Hanmer Springs.

The committee hopes the festival will

provide the opportunity for visitors to enjoy

along weekend, and visit wineries in the

region and cafes, and enjoy the many other

attractions the district has to offer during their

stay.

Two self-driven tours, over well maintained

shingle roads, will run each day. The $95

cost includes entry to each garden, morning

tea, lunch, afternoon tea, or sweet treats and

refreshments.

Anew tour, Mysteries of the Waipara Gorge,

complete with iron sculptures, concretions

and moa bones, has been introduced, while

the Hidden Gems from the Lowry Hills to the

Sea, makes its return.

Garden entry tickets at $10 per garden, are

available online at

www.hurunuigardenfestival.com, until

October 18. After that date tickets can be

purchased on the day, atthe gate.

The 17 gardens, five of them new to the

event, feature in the programme. They are in

six geographically-based clusters making it

easy to plan visits to multiple gardens.

Each cluster has its own detailed map on

the website, or in the glossy guide that is

available, showing the exact locations of the

gardens, along with other useful information,

such as the location of public toilets, fuel

stations and food outlets.

Owners have been hard at work maintaining

their gardens, especially as Mother Nature

has sent gales and frosts to thwart their

preparation. However, the team has banded

together to give each other ahand toclear

fallen trees and any other damage, to ensure

the gardens are pristine.

Check the website and guides for

information about each garden and the list of

events (pages 26 to 28), that some gardens

are hosting, such as photographic and art

exhibitions, stalls, floral art, music and jazz

singing, and learning about natives and

planting.

All the information to help visitors to enjoy

the garden festival is available on the website

www.hurunuigardenfestival.com or email

info@hurunuigardenfestival.com.

NB: Four gardens will not open on

Thursday, October 29.

Educate, entertain, inspire

The Hurunui Garden Festival was launched

in 2018 by agroup of keen local garden

owners to help the Hurunui district

recover form the impact of the devastating

earthquake of November 2016.

Many visitors turned out to the inaugural

event, making it along weekend so they

could enjoy the many attractions the district

has to offer, which this year will again

include the Hanmer Springs Fete onFriday,

October 30.

Hurunui Mayor Marie Black says the

festival offers the opportunity for aunique

chance to visit private gardens across the

district, three of which are under the New

Zealand Garden Trust, Gardens of National

and International Significance.

Hurunui Garden Festival Incorporated

(HGF), is committed to investing back in its

community. Itwill give astudent, graduating

from aHurunui secondary school, a

scholarship to the value of $2000 towards

study in horticulture at their choice of

University or Institute of Technology, onthe

occasion of HGF making areasonable profit.

Aphotographic competition is also being

run.

The Hero Photo competition invites people

and budding photographers who take photos

during the festival to submit selected high

resolution photos via email to the festival

organisers.

The photos will be used in all advertising

and marketing in 2021.

The winning entry will win anight for two at

the Hurunui Village Cottage at the Hurunui

Hotel with dinner (main, dessert and aglass

of wine), and adouble pass to the Hanmer

Springs Thermal Reserve hot pools.

The 17 gardens, in six clusters, are just

one hour’s drive from Christchurch and

the airport, and garden owners are looking

forward to greeting visitors, and sharing their

stories of how they created them.

There are garden events to educate,

entertain and inspire.

This year’s major sponsor is the Rata

Foundation, while the Hanmer Springs

Sisters aim to help

families with loss

By ROBYN BRISTOW

MiscarriageMatters NZ is

helping to show families that

theirexperience of losinga

baby to miscarriagematters.

NorthCanterbury sisters,

Aleisha Black and Corrine

Christian,started the charity

to supportfamilies and help

them find answers to

questions about miscarriage.

Aleisha explainsthat they

both became pregnant in 2018.

‘‘ButIwas the only one who

got to meetmybaby.

‘‘I am now mother to two

little boys aged 4and 2and

work part­time in acute little

gift shop in Amberley, Ruby

Six. Corrineisanoptometrist

at Rangiora Eye Carebut is on

maternityleave, caring for her

5­month­old babygirl.

Both knew littleabout

miscarriage, but through their

personal experience and

subsequent research they

discoveredmany thingscan

be donetoimprove the

experience, which prompted

them to form Miscarriage

Matters NZ.

To celebrate its launchand

to mark International Baby

Loss AwarenessWeek,which

runs fromOctober 9to15,

Aleisha and Corrine will host

afun run at The Groynes

Reserve, Christchurch, on

Sunday, October 11.

Aleisha says their

organisation is supported by

volunteers, and local

businesses.

‘‘We have created awebsite

full of practical information

and advice, started a

Facebook page to be avoice

for miscarriage, and are

making and distributing care

packages in Canterbury.

‘‘We try to put home­made

love into our carepackages, so

we sew the calico bags

ourselves, andwemake seed

bombs and keepsakestoput

in them.

‘‘We know thatwecan’tgive

families backtheir babiesbut

we are trying to do everything

else that we can.’’

Aleishasays there are no

official records of the number

of miscarriages in New

Zealand, but in partnership

with Sands Canterbury, they

are supplying50care

packages to Christchurch

Hospital every month to keep

up with demand.

They are also starting to

supply care packages to

Canterburymidwives, as

many women who experience

hospitalisation.

Meetings go online in Covid era

By DAVID HILL

Federated Farmers is looking

to the future as it remembers

the past.

Afterachallenging year,the

NorthCanterbury provincial

executive has decided to hold

its 75th anniversaryannual

meeting online.

‘‘With the country bouncing

in and out of Covid restrictions,

we weren’ttoo sure whether it

was worthplanning something

on­site for our 75th jubilee, so

we thought it would be better

to keep it low key,’’ president

Cam Hendersonsaid.

‘‘I think it willbe

rememberedfor other reasons,

as it willbeour first AGM by

conference call and it’s in an

environment where the whole

worldhas changed.’’

Normally, AGMs are held

alongside an on­farm field day.

This year’s AGM was

originallyscheduled for May,

but was postponed in the hope

therewould be more certainty

laterinthe year.

It will nowbeheld from

5.30pm on Friday, October 16,

at theprovincialoffice in

Christchurch and will be

livestreamed.

‘‘We willlook at havinga

cake forthose who are on­site

Cam Henderson ... The Oxford farmer has racked up three years as provincial president.

and we may lookatdoing

somethingspecial to mark our

76thnext year,’’ he says.

The NorthCanterbury

provincialexecutive heldits

first meetingonline last week

and Mr Henderson wonders if

thiscould be the way of the

future.

‘‘The AGM events are good

for the regulars, but because

we are ageographically

diverse province,it’s not

always possible for some

memberstotake the whole day

off­farm, so we need to move

withthe times.

‘‘Evenfor executive

meetings,itcan be achallenge

for those further from

Christchurch if it takes them

1 1 ⁄2 hourstocome to

Christchurchfor a1 1 ⁄2­hour

meetingand thenthey’vegot to

go homeagain, so it may be

easierfor members to get

involved online.’’

Freshwater regulations are a

hot topic, so Federated

Farmers national board

memberChrisAllen and

Environment Canterbury

councillor ClaireMcKay will

be guestspeakers.

Mitchell opens season in blistering form

BlackCaps starall­rounder

DarylMitchell enjoyed his first

tasteofCanterbury country

cricket on Saturday, but

couldn’t help his new club side

to awin in the first match of the

season.

Mitchell, who moved from

Northern Districts to Canterbury

to playdomestic cricket

this season, electedtoplayhis

club cricket for Lincoln.

The 29­year­old has also made

himselfavailable for selection

for the Canterbury Country

representativeteam.

On Saturday, in the opening

roundofthe CRV Ambreed

Country Premier One Day

2020/21 cricket competition,

Mitchell madehis Lincoln

debutinblistering fashion,

scoring 90 runs off just 64 balls,

including eight sixes.

But it wasn’t enoughtoget his

side an early competition win,

as it fell to astrong­looking

Leeston­Southbridge XI

coached by Toby Doyle.

Lincoln, thanks largely to

Mitchell, made 190 all out in 40

oversinits firstinnings at

Leeston Park.

Countrycaptain Harry

Chamberlain led hisside to the

comfortable eight­wicket win,

leading fromthe front with an

unbeaten 81 off 77 balls.Hewas

well supported by fellow

Country batsman RupertYoung

(39 off42) and Canterbury Kings

player Will Williams, who was

not outon55runs.

Gunninform

Aformer Black Cap starred in

Southbrook’s 58­run win over

Cheviot, but it was 15­year­old

George Gunn who stole the show

CRICKET

with astunning bowling

performance.

Afterveteranopener Tony

Hancoxblastedaquick­fire

half­century for Southbrook,

formerBlack Cap Shanan

Stewart addedhis own 50 as

Southbrook, playingathome,

made 182 on alow, slow pitch.

The Cheviot Magpies flew off

to agood start in replywith the

bat, beforeanother Southbrook

stalwart, Darryn Boyle,came to

the bowling crease.

Boyleremoved the top order

and finished with three wickets.

But 15­year­old Gunn was the

star of theshow,coming on as

the fifthbowler and

immediately having an impact.

He ripped through the

Cheviot line­up, which went

from 92/3tobeall out in the 36th

over for 124.

Ryan Ellis,with 28 off 67 balls,

tried to stickitout, but wickets

tumbled around him.

Gunn finished with the

remarkable figures of five

wickets for nine runs.

Batting first, the SeftonSeals,

as they have done for many

with Matt Laffey chipping in

opportunity to getonthe

The match had athrilling

What’s happening in your

community…

Council Submits $10m Water Infrastructure

List for Government Approval

The Council finalised a$10m+ list of projects

last week which will see residents benefit from

upgraded Three Waters infrastructure.

The funding ispart of astimulus package made

available to the Council in return for signing up to

the first stage of the Government’s Three Waters

(drinking water, wastewater and storm water)

Reform programme.

This funding will allow anumber of projects, which

were planned for future years, to start immediately

without needing any significant up-front capital

costs from rates.

In order to access this funding, the Council was

required to submit alist of projects which

could start quickly and be mostly completed

within ayear.

Earlier this week the Council nominated the

following 11 projects:

• Loburn Lea Wastewater Upgrade

• Fernside Wastewater Upgrade

• Poyntzs Road Water Source Upgrade

• Tuahiwi Water and Wastewater Upgrades

• Oxford Wastewater Upgrades

• West Eyreton and Summerhill Storage Upgrades

• Ohoka Storage Upgrade

• Three Waters Reform Investigations

• Headworks Asset Management Improvements

• Drainage and Waterways Manager

• Central Rangiora Wastewater Upgrade.

The total value of these projects is $10.3m,

$8.02m of which will be covered by central

Government funding. The remainder will be

made up through targeted rates, development

contributions and general rates.

If the funding is secured, the communities that will

benefit from the projects can expect to hear from

the Council in the coming weeks and months as

detailed design work is completed.

Generally, the funding presents asignificant

benefit to the district providing much needed

infrastructure upgrades while minimising any

rating impacts.

Council expects to hear back from Government

regarding the approval of the nominated projects

within the coming month.

Walking and Cycling Made Safer

in Woodend

Kids in Woodend will soon have asafer way to

get to school thanks toanew shared path that

will link the existing Rangiora Woodend Path to

Woodend School.

The project aims to create apath where children

and families can bike and walk, and also to help

encourage more people to leave their car at home.

Residents have raised concerns about vehicle

speeds in the area and the Council is working with

the school toimprove safety in the area.

The new section of path will continue from the

existing path along the western side of Rangiora

Woodend Road, before crossing into School Road.

It will link with Waka Kotahi, NZTransport Agency’s

planned signalised crossing point on State

Highway 1which will be ready for the new school

term in 2021.

Asection of Rangiora Woodend Road, near School

Road is also wide enough to look at options for

improving the layout of the road, such as adding

car parking onboth sides of the road and new

planting.

There are two options for locals to consider.

Feedback on the road layout is open until 22

October and drop-in sessions will allow directly

affected residents to talk through the proposals

with staff.
