Shed’splace in history cemented

By SHELLEY TOPP

Ashed, thought to be among the first

built using concrete in Canterbury,has

beensaved from the bulldozer by

Rangiora historianand museumowner

Richard Spark.

The shed,alongside the Northbrook

Stream on the Spark family’s Southbrook

dairy farm on Marsh Road, near

Rangiora,isbelievedtohave been built

by the Torlesse family in 1880.Itis

thought it was first used for dairying.

Richard, who established the

NorthbrookMuseum in 1982, has one of

New Zealand’s mostextensive private

collections of social historyartefacts.

He believes the shed wasalso usedto

breedqueen bees by the Shepherd

family, who owned the farmafter the

Torlesse family.

‘‘It is quite asignificant building,’’ he

says.

The decisiontorestore the building

was madeduring aclean­up of the

paddock in preparationfor irrigation

pivots. ‘‘The bulldozer was rightthere,’’

Richard said.

But, instead, he decided to restoreit,

and hired Loburnfencing contractor

Nathan Scotttodothe work.

‘‘He is avery handy man and can turn

his hand to anything,’’ Richard said.

The shed was packedwith old bits of

barbed wireand other rubbish,and had

smalltrees growing insideitwhen

Nathan and his crew beganworking

on it.

One fish, two scoops and Eden Park

AKaikoura fish and chip shop

has the namingrights of Eden

Park for this weekend’s

Bledisloe Cup encounter.

Last week,ASB Bank made

history by securing the weeklong

naming rights to the

stadium and said it wouldgift

On Monday,itrevealed the

family­owned fishand chip

shop,Coopers Catch, as the

what will be known this

weekend as CoopersCatch

avid rugby fans Jason and

them.

It will have amix of all­day

parking for commuters,

120­minute parking for

shoppers, and 30 parks have

been set aside for

businesses to lease for their

employees, making it a

‘‘multi­use parking and

Asecond Kaiapoi parkand­ride

facility will be built

at the southern end of the

town.

The park­and­ride service

will provide adirect link

between the two Kaiapoi

parking facilities and the

Christchurch city centre,

with morning and evening

bus runs.

Mr Hart says it is too early

to tell whether Covid­19 has

led to along­term change in

working and commuter

habits, which may impact on

the service’s viability.

‘‘Covid hasn’t yet finished.

It’s still present in people’s

minds, so we won’t know

CoopersCatch is afirm

‘‘I understand there is aprocess,

health issuesthat may result from

the dust and noise.

MayorDan Gordonaccepted the

petition andsaid it would be passed

to the council’s planning manager

and the Rangiora­AshleyCommunity

Board.

‘‘I have noted it’s astrongly held

community opinion and Ihave met

with anumber of residents,and

others have approached me to

express their views.

‘‘It’s not appropriate formeorour

councillors to express an opinion at

this point. We need to keep an open

mind and allowittogothrough the

process.’’

Cr Kirstyn Barnett thanked the

petitioners fortheir timeand noted

Taggart hadnow requestedthe

consent application be publicly

notified ‘‘andthat maynot have

happened otherwise’’.

‘‘Thisisdemocracy in action.’’

Councillors have adopted a

which provides directionfor

OPINION

6 North Canterbury News, October 15, 2020

KAIKŌURA VIEWS

MAYOR CRAIG MACKLE

Art tells region’sstory

Iwas absolutely blown away by the

cultural artwork package that willtell

our story along the Kaikouracoastline.

Maurice Manawatu did an outstanding

job during arecent presentation, taking

us on ajourneyofwhat the final outcome

will looklike.

The artworks, which are being

installed,will highlight Kaikoura’s

cultural heritage and identity. It is a

visionthat will really bring our coastline

to life.

Since 2018, the North Canterbury

Transport Infrastructure Recovery

alliance has worked with Te Runanga o

Kaikoura, KiwiRail and the Waka Kotahi

NZ Transport Authority to createthe

cultural artwork.

The resultwill be aseries of stopping

pointsalongthe Kaikoura coastline,

telling the storyofour districtthrough

the arts.

It chronicles the myths and legends

through to our recent past, including the

history of whalinginthe area.

This sort of connection to placeisgreat

for our community, creating asense of

belonging and pride in wherewelive.

Another way to connectour community

is through celebrations and events, so it

is good to see that the Spring into

SummerFestival was aresounding

success.

Local businesses were very happywith

the vibe in town, and the village green

was packed with kids and theirfamilies

enjoying the activities over the weekend.

The festival was organised by the

Kaikoura District Council Community

Events division and sponsored by the

Kaikoura Family Violence Free

Network,and Innovative Waste

Kaikoura.

Iwould like to thank everyone who

helped on the day, including local

musiciansfrom the Kaikoura Music

Collectiveand the KaiChorus, as well as

everyonewho came downand joined the

fun.

The districtappears to be humming.

Maybeitisthe longer days and better

weather, but most of the people Iam

speaking to seem happy and enthusiastic

aboutthe comingseason.

Speakingofthat, withsummer on the

way we need to start thinking about how

we use our water supply.

Waterusage is around 50 percent

higher in Kaikoura than the rest of New

Zealand duringthe summer.

Whileweare fortunate to have agood

watersource we needtoprotect this asset

into the future.

Thereare loads of waystosave water.

Ahandytip is to cut your grass at aheight

of around 70mm. This meansyou are on

the lawnmower less (with more time to go

whitebaiting!)

It alsoensures thatthe roots grow

longer and can reach moistureavailable

deeper in the soil, keeping the grass

greenfor longer.

If you want to water your garden, a

good doseevery few days in the evening,

or very early morning,isthe best way.

Enjoyyourselves out there.

Council’sfinancial

performance praised

By DAVID HILL

The Waimakariri District Council has

produced astrong financial result,

despite the effects of Covid­19.

Councillors adopted the council’s

2020/21 annual report at last week’s

meeting, with finance and business

support manager Jeff Millward

reporting afavourable result.

‘‘The annual report has been

impacted quite significantly by Covid­

19 and we have made provision for it

in the annual plan,’’ he said.

Mayor Dan Gordon said he was

proud of the council’s result.

‘‘We have an audited opinion which

is fantastic and it goes along with our

AA/A­1+ credit rating and our AA

rating for our performance, which all

speaks well of Jim (Palmer) and Jeff,’’

he said.

‘‘I think we can all be very pleased

with our work in light of Covid­19.’’

Mr Gordon said the district was well

placed to manage projected growth

from 63,000 to more than 75,000 by

2028.

‘‘This isn’t that far away when you

think about it.

‘‘These new people will create jobs,

increase economic activity and add

vibrancy to our district.

‘‘It’s important the council looks

after them through the provision of

infrastructure such as water, parks,

public facilities and services that

improve their lives and help them

prosper.’’

While the district continued to face

uncertainty with Covid­19, regulatory

changes to the delivery of water

services and the zero carbon

legislation presented some challenges

for the council as it looked ahead to

next year’s 2021/31 Long Term Plan,

Mr Gordon said.

In another report to last week’s

meeting, utilities and roading

manager Gerard Cleary and

community and recreation manager

Chris Brown acknowledged the

council had fallen behind on its

capital works commitments.

While there were factors out of the

council’s control, such as the Covid­19

lockdown and waiting on New Zealand

Transport Agency funding

applications for roading projects, Mr

Cleary was not looking to make

excuses.

‘‘We did lose the best window for the

roading season with the lockdown.

Once we got out of lockdown we were

outside that weather window.

‘‘But at the end of the day we haven’t

delivered on our programme,’’ he

said.

But councillors were alittle more

forgiving.

‘‘If there are valid reasons, they are

reasons and not excuses,’’ Deputy

Mayor Neville Atkinson said.

‘‘But this is agood honest report in

front of us.’’

Cr Kirstyn Barnett thanked council

staff for their openness in the report.

‘‘I think you have been too hard on

yourselves. Covid­19 has thrown

everything out of whack.’’

We are doomed without amoral compass

Dear Editor,

With the forthcoming

elections, perhaps this is an

opportune time to review the

connections between business

(money), politics (leadership)

and religion (morality).

Controversy often follows

the relationships that connect

all three and, especially

religion, which is almost seen

as ataboo topic.

New Zealand is considered

mostly aChristian country and

essentially our ethics or moral

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

behaviour has its foundation

within the Scriptures.

The major issue is in the

writing and interpretation of

the original truths delivered

during the Christ event.

Hundreds of years later, the

Roman Catholic Church

dominated the west and Greek

Orthodox the east.

Literally, hundreds of sects

have since expounded their

own version, led principally by

the Protestant Church.

Warring decimated central

Europe, particularly during

the 16th century, where

populations which didn’t

conform to the dictates of

those in power were either

eliminated or exiled.

Witches (truth seekers),

were burnt on the stake for

voicing opinions that didn’t

conform to the control of the

church.

Today, we can look at the

morality of our leadership.

What truths do they expound?

Do they lead by example or is

money their god? All Ihear is

that everything needs more

money and all will be sweet.

At present, the cure to our

woes focuses on borrowing

more money and increasing

debt to levels never seen

before.

Without addressing

fundamental issues of cause/

why, and dealing with only the

effects, (that is, we need more

housing for the poor and

needy), nothing will be solved.

Without amoral compass,

we will be doomed to an

inevitable collapse of systems

and social chaos.

Choose carefully —perhaps

look to some of the minor

parties.

Yours,

Dr Richard E. Roe,

Rubbish haul

disappointing

By SHELLEY TOPP

Volunteers taking part in the annual

Foothills Honey Ashley/Rakahuri

River Clean­up collected 980kg of

rubbish.

‘‘It was so disappointing,’’ said

Laura Malcolm, one of the owners of

Foothills Honey.

‘‘The Ashley River has areputation

for beautiful picnic and swimming

spots, as well as walking trails.

‘‘But, unfortunately, for others it is

better known as adumping ground.

‘‘It is heartbreaking to see our

beautiful rivers that we all love to

enjoy being used as adumping

ground when we all know it is illegal

to dump rubbish this way.’’

The Waimakariri District Council’s

environmental services unit

manager, Tracy Boundy, says the

council does not want people

dumping rubbish on public, private

or reserve land and those caught will

be fined.

‘‘If people find dumped rubbish

they can either ring the council or

raise aSnap, Send, Solve request and

we will respond and look into it.’’

Compliance officers are warranted

under the Litter Act to investigate

dumped rubbish.

‘‘If people are caught dumping

rubbish, or we can prove who has

dumped it, we will and do fine the

person responsible. This has

happened several times this year.’’

The clean­up took place last

Sunday.

Locking down plans for the Covid recovery

By DAVID HILL

Simon Hartfeelslikeheiswriting a

recovery plan while ‘‘waiting for the

disastertohappen’’.

The Waimakariri District Council

business and centres manager has been

tasked with writing aCovid­19 recovery

plan for acrisis without visible signs of

disaster,such as an earthquake.

Statistics from consumer spending

specialistsMarketview show that credit

card andeftpos spending in the district, as

at September27, is 0.3 percent ahead of

last year, even allowing for the lockdown,

leavingMrHart scratchinghis headto

considerwhen the expected impactwill

hitthe district.

‘‘Pre­lockdown, weekly spending was

bouncing around at $8.5 million,

compared to $8mlast year, and then when

peoplebecameaware we were going into

lockdown there was aspike to $10m.’’

During alert level 4spending dropped to

about $5m, but quickly bounced backto

pre­lockdownlevels and has continued to

track ahead of last year, withasmall spike

when Auckland’s lockdown was

announced.

Spending on food, liquorand

pharmacies, where residentsspentthe

most money, was up 16.5% on last year, up

to September27. Home and recreational

retail spending was alsoup, while spending

on hospitality and accommodation,

fuel and automotive, andclothing and

footwear were all down, but were showing

signs of recovery, Mr Hart said.

Spending for New Zealandasawhole

was 9.5% downonthe same time last year,

as at September 27. ‘‘There will be some

businesses still hurting, but one of the

things Waimakariri has in itsfavouriswe

have some prettyresilient industries and

our retailers,for the most part, have

bouncedback pretty well,’’MrHart said.

❛There certainly hasbeen

some tough times and, to be

honest, the businessesneed to

be commended for how

innovative they’ve been.❜

—Simon Hart

‘‘There certainly has been some tough

times and, to be honest, the businesses

need to be commended for how innovative

they’ve been.’’

The government’swagesubsidies had

helpedtoprotect countless jobsinthe

district, whichhelped spending bounce

back after the lockdown, he said.

‘‘We will be interestedtosee, as the

subsidy has nowcome out of play, how

many of those businesseshave beenable

to go back to normal.

‘‘The retail spend would suggestmost

businesseshavebeenable to go backto

operating normally, but thereare some

like travelagents where the environment

has changed significantly.’’

The challenge in writingarecovery plan

is understandingthe long­term impacts of

onlineshoppingand knowingwhere

investment is needed to support recovery.

‘‘We need to understand what this

means for the futureofHigh Street and

Williams Street, but Ithink peopleprefer

the interaction and having acoffee, which

is part of theexperience.

‘‘We were mindful of Covid­19 when we

finalised the Rangiora Town Centre Plan.

‘‘Withthe Kaiapoi Town Centre Plan (in

2018),wedidn’t know about Covid­19, but

we knew about theearthquakes.

‘‘We realisethat town centres need to be

diverse, openspacesand places to meet,

with eating places.’’

Simon Hart ... There will be some businesses still hurting, he says.

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.

Best to stick

to the three Ps

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Wastewater treatment ponds in the

Hurunui district are flush with

everything from jeans and underwear

to chemicals and wet wipes.

Anew inlet screen and aerators have

been installed at the Hawarden

treatment ponds to stop foreign objects

entering.

This equipment is now installed in

most of the schemes in the Hurunui in

abid to screen the incoming

wasterwater down to 3mm and reduce

the solids and waste products getting

into the pond.

Only the three P’s should go down a

toilet —pee, poo and paper (toilet).

Anything else can potentially cause

issues.

Chief operations officer Dan Harris

says staff have encountered everything

from clothing to general waste over the

years.

‘‘These items get stuck in the pipes,

which costs ratepayers, as it can be

very expensive to rectify, and it also

disrupts the treatment ponds.

“The ponds are designed to treat

normal human waste and work better if

we can keep everything except the

three P’s out.”

Mr Harris says the new aerators

dissolve more air and therefore put

more oxygen in the ponds.

“Low dissolved oxygen levels in the

ponds reduce the efficiency of the

bacteria breaking down material and

increase the risk that the ponds will

start to smell.

‘‘Adding more oxygen takes care of

these bacteria and keeps odour down,”

he said.

Plans for Southbrook

strategy welcomed

By DAVID HILL

Accessibility is seen akeyissue for

Southbrookbusinesses.

TheWaimakariri District Council plans

to develop aSouthbrook strategy, and local

businesses are pleased to seethe shift in

focus.

‘‘Thecouncilhas concentrated on High

Street and hasn’t really wanted to develop

thisareaasthey fearitwould detractfrom

High Street, but Ithinkthey’verealised

thatit’s in everyone’sbenefit to develop

Southbrookin acontrolledmanner,’’

Farmlands Rangiora manager Phil Jelfs

says.

‘‘Forus, it’s aboutthe ease of access and

makingthe journeyasinviting as possible.

‘‘It’snotafoottraffic areaand Idon’t

thinkiteverwillbe.’’

Mr Jelfsand other business owners said

they would be watching Daniel Smith’s

proposed developments in Southbrook

with interest,whichare understoodto

include an automotive museum and an

associated retailarea.

Thebusinesses say the road is the

biggest issueand they lookforwardto

seeing the council’s plans to developthe

Flaxton/Fernside Roadroundabout to

ease trafficflowscometofruition.

‘‘Thetraffic downthis road is just crazy,’’

Brook TruckServices ownerJohn McCabe

says of FlaxtonRd.

‘‘But thetrafficthat comesdownthis

road comeshere for apurpose.The

roundabout will make it easier for turning,

but I’m not sure itwilleasecongestionon

FlaxtonRd.’’

Mr McCabe says part of the problem is

the ‘‘five­axle gateways’’ to business

❛It’s not afoot traffic area and

Idon’t think it ever will be.❜

—Farmlands Rangiora manager Phil Jelfs

premises are not wide enough for trucks,

requiringthemto takeawideberth before

turning.

‘‘If you’reheading south, you have to

swing to the west to turneast.

PebbleBeach Upholstery owner Brent

Rainbow looks forward to sitting down to

look at the council’s proposals, but saysthe

road andparkingneedtobethepriorities.

He likesthe mixofbusinesses, fromthe

sports andrecreation centre, to fourwheel­drive

and truck servicing, mowers

and hunting gear, to FMG and Farmlands

—‘‘and I’m the onlyupholster in the area’’.

‘‘It’s apretty widemixofbusinesses.

There’s all sorts when you lookaround

whereIam, andDanielSmith’splans will

give it aboost.

‘‘Rangioraisgetting bigger and there’s a

lot of money out here. The possibilities are

pretty exciting.’’

The need for aSouthbrook strategywas

identified as part of the Rangiora Town

Centre Strategy, whichwas signedoff

earlierthisyear, anditisnow considered

to be an importantpartofthe district’s

Covid­19 recovery,Waimakariri Mayor

Dan Gordon says.

‘‘More recently the council’s economic

recovery advisory group raised the need

for astrategyfor Southbrook, noting the

significantdevelopmentthat has occurred.

Recovery ... The

North Canterbury

Transport

Infrastructure

Recovery alliance

has been striving to

mitigate the

ecological impacts

of its road works.

PHOTO: SUPPLIED

Animalsand plants

given high priority

Kaikoura’s roadingrecovery work has

treadedlightlyonthe environment,

despitethe massive earthworks involved.

The NorthCanterbury Transport

Infrastructure Recovery (NCTIR) alliance

hasundertaken environmental and

ecological work to reduce impacts on local

plants and animals, while restoring quakedamaged

roads.

In arecentreporttothe Kaikoura Zone

Committee, it detailed its collaboration

with ateam of specialist ecologistsand

environmentaladvisers while workingon

State Highway 1from the Hundaleestothe

Tirohanga Wetland, and the Inland Road

and mainnorth railway linefrom Cheviot

to Blenheim.

Kaikoura Zone Committee chairman

Ted Howard says the transport corridor is

also one of the priority areas in the

Kaikoura Zone ImplementationPlan.

‘‘We’vebeen thrilled by how theyhave

kept us up­to­date on all the ecological

impacts and mitigations throughoutthe

programme.

“The goal of having the transport

corridorinthe planwas to reallyensure

that StateHighway 1and the maintrunk

railway are managed, operatedand

developed in ways that maintain and,

where possible, improve waterways and

their wildlife,”hesays.

NCTIR has undertaken works on nearly

every bridge and culvertcrossing along the

coast, which has required careful planning

to reduce theeffects on nativefish.

Morethan 5500 fishhave beensalvaged

during streamworksand NCTIR has

reinstatedfish passages where infrastructure

has erodedand blocked off fish

access to upper waterways. Theywere

identified, measured, recorded and

relocatedtoprotect them during work.

Ecology has played an important role in

all of NCTIR’s work, withthe aim of

minimisingenvironment impacts.

The fish caught duringNCTIR’swork

havebeen reported to the New Zealand

freshwaterfish database,whichprovides a

central resourcefor fish diversity

information, Mr Howardsays.

“It’s great to see that thisinformationis

adding to anational ‘big­picture’ for fish

speciesand that anyone,anywhere, can

access it.”

For the last threeyears, Environment

Canterbury’s Kaikourastaff have provided

advice andexplainedwhat outcomes are

required to achieve compliance onsite, to

helpNCTIR workthrough its

responsibilities while repairingSH1.

Around 16,000 sealshave beenmoved by

professionalhandlerssince February

2017, and around150 lizardshave been

relocatedtoprotect them during

construction.

Atotalofnine birdshave been rescued

while out in the field, while 42,500

archaeological fish bones havebeen

identified across 21 different speciesof

fish, and 68,000 eco­sourced plants have

beengrown from seed for the project.

Infrastructure project winds down

The Kaikoura District Council’s

horizontal infrastructureproject is

winding down, with the council rebuild

team disbanding.

Finaltouches are being madetothe

$38.6million programme,within budget.

Infrastructure assets are being

returned to the community repaired,and

wherepossible improved.

Afew works are still to be completed,

including the remaining pipework on

Esplanade and Avoca Street, and the

refurbishment and upgradeofthe Lyell

Creek Pump Station acrossfrom the West

End/StateHighway 1corner.

Oneproject,for the Clarence Valley

bridge, remains outstanding. Councillors

have voted to rebuild it 500 metres

downstream from the bridge damagedin

theearthquake.Planning has begun.

Specialist gear ... Machine operator Shannon James with the D65 23­tonne Komatsu

Weka has the gear for

all earthmoving needs

North Canterbury company Weka

Earthmoving grew from humble

beginnings with an eight­tonne digger

and an old tip truck.

Today, as it celebrates its 10th

anniversary, the company has afull

range of earthmoving machinery to

meet the needs of rural, commercial,

lifestyle and residential customers.

You can see their line up at the

Amberley A&P Show on October 31.

Weka Earthmoving’s expertise

includes land clearing, irrigation,

track construction, dams and ponds,

effluent systems, civil construction

and site works.

It has just added aD65 23­tonne

Komatsu bulldozer to its inventory,

which has been put straight to work on

acontouring job.

The company is locally established,

and directors Richard and Jane Egden

enjoy being part of the North

Canterbury community.

Richard says the wide range of

equipment keeps him and his staff

pretty busy, allowing him to do larger

jobs more easily and cost effectively,

but at the same time it gives him the

ability to slot in the smaller jobs as

well.

With abackground in civil

construction and farming, Richard is

able to apply these skills to everything

from dairy conversions to subdivisions

and private driveways.

He says it is important to keep up to

date with new plant and the latest

technology to meet the needs of clients

throughout the Hurunui district and

beyond.

As well as the new bulldozer, Weka

Earthmoving has diggers, agrader,

and tip trucks, which allow it to also

offer track maintenance, shingling,

mole ploughing, subdivision and dairy

conversion work.

Richard says Weka Earthmoving’s

experience and ability to take on large

and small jobs ensures the wheels of

the business keep turning throughout

the year.

Following the Covid­19 lockdown,

the team had been busy helping with

farm maintenance, lifestyle and

residential jobs, as well as site works.

Work is always completed to ahigh

standard at affordable prices.

As all jobs require different kinds of

plant and equipment, Weka

Earthmoving is constantly investing in

new plant and is focused on remaining

agile to meet market demand.

Weka Earthmoving welcomes

enquiries from all over North

Canterbury, from Christchurch to

Kaikoura and through to Culverden.

Potential for farm tourism aired

By DAVID HILL

Rural tourism provides an opportunity

for farmers to tell their stories.

Lincoln University tourism lecturer

Dr Joanna Fountain has been working

with the Post Quake Farming Project to

help farmers explore tourism

opportunities and to tell their stories.

Three years of drought and the 2016

earthquake has forced farmers to

rethink their whole farming operation to

become more resilient, she says.

‘‘I was brought on board following

initial discussions for the project which

found that anumber of people were

looking at developing tourism

opportunities and farmers

were interested in being able

to tell their stories of their

earthquake experience,

family heritage, farming

practices and ecological

diversification.’’

Dr Fountain was already

working with North

Canterbury wine growers and

the Kaikoura community in

the aftermath of the 2016

earthquake to explore

opportunities for diversifying the local

economy before joining the project.

‘‘It’s about ensuring farmers are

making informed decisions by being

aware of the opportunities and the

pitfalls, whether they are making

decisions about tourism, honey or

planting trees, and helping them

establish useful contacts and networks.’’

Farmers quickly realised there were

advantages to working together and

collaborating with the wider

community, Dr Fountain says, recalling

an early meeting in the Waiau Hall.

‘‘Some farmers knew each other, but

others didn’t and many didn’t know their

neighbours were also thinking about

tourism, so it was agood opportunity to

find out what ideas people were having,

what synergies there were and what

people had in common.’’

While this year’s activities have been

‘‘slightly curtailed’’ by Covid­19, Dr

Fountain says the farmers she has been

working with remain optimistic.

‘‘Covid­19 has been disastrous for the

tourism industry, but for the farmers,

they are used to fluctuating markets,

whether it be the milk price, the wool

price, the meat price or rural tourism.

‘‘The farmers have said, ‘OK, tourism

is not happening at the moment, but

we’ve had abumper crop and

the rainfall has been good

this year’.

‘‘Primary producers have a

number of strings to their

bow. It’s about not having all

your eggs in one basket.’’

But it is not all doom and

gloom for the tourism

industry, despite the border

being closed to international

tourists, Dr Fountain says.

‘‘For every dollar

Cantabrians spend on

domestic tourism, they spend $6 on

international tourism, so if only 50

percent of that is spent on domestic

tourism this summer, it will make abig

difference.

‘‘In the post­Covid environment, alot

of New Zealanders are re­evaluating

what’s important in their lives and, for

many urban people, they really enjoyed

the quiet, taking walks and bike rides

each day, and getting back to basics.

‘‘Most New Zealanders don’t get to

feed alamb every spring or listen to a

bird song in the morning, but we have

farmers who are ready to offer that

experience.’’

Superb century sets up win for Ohoka

Ohoka, newcomers to top­level

country cricket, stamped its

mark on the competition with a

hard­fought win over Ellesmere

rivals Lincoln on Saturday.

The 23­run Ohoka victory in

the CRV Ambreed Country

Premier One Day cricket

competition came on the back

of asuperb century by opener

Daniel Lyons.

Lyons’ 108 runs off 125 balls

anchored the innings as the

home side made an imposing

249/4 in areduced 42 overs,

with Rhys Mariu, who starred

in the New Zealand XI at the

ICC Under­19 Cricket World

Cup in South Africa earlier this

year, chiming in with aclassy

49.

Lincoln looked likely to run

down the high score thanks to

an incredible solo effort from

Joe Williams.

The left­hander plundered

the Ohoka attack to all parts on

his way to ablazing 160 runs off

just 120 balls, which included

28 boundaries.

But when Williams was

stumped by Will Hamilton off

the medium­pace of Paul Miller

in the 36th over, the game was

lost.

Miller and Austin Hamilton

mopped up the tail to record

the side’s first win in the

competition.

Seftondominates

Aresurgent Sefton recorded

its second win of the new

season with acomfortable sixwicket

demolition of Darfield.

At Sefton Domain, the visitors

struggled to get any momentum

in their first innings, collapsing

to be 144 all out in the 41st

over.

Micah Campbell was chief

destroyer, snaring five wickets.

Returning from astint

overseas, Lance Taylor’s

unbeaten 49 off 100 balls

showed his quality by guiding

Sefton to acomfortable victory

with more than five overs left.

Weedons win

The upset of the round came

at Mandeville, where Weedons

beat competition favourites

Leeston­Southbridge.

Batting first, Weedons got

solid contributions throughout

its batting order to make 161

before being bowled out in the

44th over.

An aggressive 55­run ninthwicket

partnership between

Arnav Deb (28 runs off 26 balls)

and Jack Parker (26 off 33)

ultimately proved the

difference in the match.

Deb took the confidence from

his batting performance into

the second innings with the

ball.

Opening the bowling, Deb

(5/20) and Charlie Robson (3/30)

ripped through the Leeston­

Southbridge top order,

claiming the prized scalps of

Rupert Young and Harry

Chamberlain cheaply.

Aspirited 40 not out from

number 9batsman David Neal

gave the combined side asniff

of victory, but ended up falling

36 runs short.

Abandoned

The Southbrook clash against

Oxford­Rangiora was

abandoned after just 24.1 overs,

with Southbrook on 89/3.

Cheviot had the bye.

Short scorecards

Ohoka 249/4 (D Lyons 108, R

Mariu 49, RKelly 34; AGulati

2/40) beat Lincoln 226 (J

Williams 160, RSporke 22; P

Miller 4/42, AHamilton 4/46).

Darfield 144 (B Innes 37, R

Hughes 31; MHamilton 5/23, J

Roberts 2/29, CWarner 2/34)

lost to Sefton 145/4 (L Taylor

49no, FSheat 22; JFrew 3/32).

Weedons 161 (A Deb 28, J

Parker 26, CRobson 24, J

Richards 24, TInness 22; W

Macfarlane 5/26) beat Leeston

Southbridge 125 (D Neal 40no;

ADeb 5/20, CRobson 3/30).

Roof Shout as Another Stadium

Milestone Reached

Builders and tradies working on Stadium

Waimakariri were rewarded with aroof shout

last week, as the $28M project passed another

construction milestone.

Mayor Dan Gordon and North Canterbury Sport

&Recreation Trust Chair, Don Robertson, visited

the site with staff to express their thanks to

the contractors for their hard work. They were

joined by the owner of Leigh's Construction,

Anthony Leigh, who made aspecial visit to inspect

progress.

With the roof complete and windows and external

cladding being fitted, the stadium will soon be

weather-tight, allowing for the internal fit-out to

begin. The installation of plumbing, electrical and

fire sprinklers is currently underway.

To support the new facility, anew shared path will

be built along southern side of Coldstream Road,

providing asafe and convenient link for people to

walk and cycle to the stadium from East Belt.

There will be some minor disruption on both East

Belt and Coldstream Road during the work, with

detours and lane closures in place as contractors

work to get the stadium ready for opening in mid-

2021.

Sharing our Beaches Safely

As the warmer weather arrives, it’s agood time

to check out the rules in place around using the

District’s beaches.

While the vast majority of beach users are

considerate and do the right thing, we do see some

recurring issues, particularly around vehicles and

dogs on the beach.

We recently supported Environment Canterbury

in prosecuting a4WD driver who ignored warning

signage and drove through the Ashley-Rakahuri

Estuary in breach of the Pegasus Bay Bylaw. The

driver caused significant damage to the estuary,

which is home to several endangered and rare

species of birdlife.

We work with Environment Canterbury’s Rangers

over summer to make sure people are aware of the

rules. The aim is to educate people first, however

we will take steps to enforce the Pegasus Beach

Bylaw for the most serious cases.

Civil Defence’s Next Generation Steps Up

Clad in crisp, navy-blue uniforms, agroup of

teenagers gather to train each week on the

outskirts of Rangiora.

They practice fire-fighting, applying first-aid and

using radios and could very well be Waimakariri’s

future first responders.

They’re the first intake of Waimakariri's Civil

Defence Emergency Management Cadet Unit -the

first of its kind in the country. The programme

provides practical training in Civil Defence and

Emergency Management for young people aged

12-17 and for many, provides ataste of apotential

future career in emergency services.

“You see ahuge amount ofpersonal growth in

the cadets through the year” says the Council’s

Youth Development Facilitator, Sam Redman.

“They develop their knowledge of emergency

management, but also come away with increased

self-confidence and life skills.”

Cadet leader, Annika Ettema, says she would

definitely recommend the programme to others. “I

think Cadets is agood opportunity, there’s lots of

variety and the people are pretty cool.”

The next intake opens in February.

Kaiapoi Christadelphians

“The Key of Knowledge ..“(Luke 11:52)

WOULD CHRIST SUPPORT

CHRISTIANS IN PROTEST?

The Bible teaches that those who commit their ways to

godly principles, become strangers and pilgrims to the

world around them. Human effort will not bring justice

and peace to mankind, for out of the heart of man

proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,

thefts, wickedness,deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye,

blasphemy, pride, foolishness: all these evil things come

from within, and defile the man. Mark 7:20-23.

ABible believers walk and speech should be awitness to

anew wayoflife, obeying all the laws of the land (unless

it conflicts with the teaching of Christ), and declaring the

truth of Bible teaching 1Peter 2:13-16

There is hope for the future, when the earth will be

restored to akingdom under arighteous ruler -the Lord

Jesus Christ, where true justice and peace WILL be for all.
