Politics inspired artist Sue<br />

MICK.JENSEN<br />

@ashburtoncourier.co.nz<br />

She’s usuallyarealist painter and<br />

favours watercolours, but Sue<br />

Simpson’s award­winning artwork<br />

into this year’s <strong>Ashburton</strong>Societyof<br />

Arts (ASA) annual exhibition is more<br />

of an abstract and paintedinacrylics.<br />

Called Breaking Point, the painting<br />

is influenced by politics andthe<br />

tensions between parties leading up<br />

to the recentGeneralElection.<br />

It features the colours of the main<br />

political parties, but the bottom<br />

quarterswitchestofeature<br />

miniatures of thehigh country, rivers<br />

and lakes, and sea.<br />

Theartist brings out her tensions<br />

and frustrations with the angle of<br />

lines she uses.<br />

Emotive wordingonthe canvas<br />

includessuppression and regression,<br />

recovery, business, enterprise,<br />

freedomofspeech and farming<br />

matters.<br />

The painting tookfour days to<br />

complete and some originalideas<br />

were pushedtothe side and replaced<br />

with new ideas,she said.<br />

‘‘I startedoff with the idea of<br />

politics andwhatwas going on, and<br />

then movedthrough to incorporate<br />

aspects of farming.’’<br />

Abstract painting allowed you to<br />

express your feelings much better<br />

than realistworks,she said.<br />

Carter’s Creek has big issues<br />

CleaningupCarter’s Creekisproving<br />

toughand acommunitygroupthat<br />

planned to plantnatives and<br />

generally improve the areahas<br />

pressedpause,saying the issues are<br />

bigger thantheycan deal with.<br />

Flooding is amain concern,<br />

followedbywater quality, andthe<br />

grouphas askedthe <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

District Council and Environment<br />

Canterbury to help sort those issues.<br />

‘‘Oncewehave that sorted,wecan<br />

startthe fencing andplanting,’’<br />

CartersCreekEnhancement Project<br />

spokesperson WillyLeferink said in a<br />

letter to <strong>Ashburton</strong> Water Zone<br />

Committee chair BillThomas.<br />

Theletter was part of awider<br />

discussion about the creek whenthe<br />

water zonecommitteemet this week.<br />

The creek is apriority area because<br />

of contaminationfrom various<br />

sources; the water drains down to<br />

LakeHood, aprimespot for water<br />

recreation.<br />

Faecalsourcetracking showed<br />

contamination was most likelyfrom<br />

sheep, cows andbirds, though human<br />

faecal sources were also detected.<br />

Theenhancementgroup was<br />

planning to fence the creek to keep<br />

stockout and do riparian planting.<br />

Landownerswerealso to be targeted<br />

for education.<br />

Thecreekisspringfed and startsat<br />

the west of Tinwald; it alsotakes<br />

stormwater.<br />

Retired hydrologist John Waugh<br />

said one solutioncould be diverting<br />

creek water to alarge constructed<br />

wetlands whereitcouldthen be<br />

discharged intothe <strong>Ashburton</strong> River.<br />

Butothers said the solution should<br />

work withnature, ratherthan<br />

engineer it.<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> District Councillor<br />

Stuart Wilson,who is part of the zone<br />

committee,said cleaning the creek of<br />

rubbishand vegetation would be a<br />

good start.<br />

Ecan landadviser Lachie Ashton<br />

said Carter’sCreekhad been a<br />

problemkickeddown the roadsince<br />

2003.People had been dumping<br />

rubbish in it and theyneeded to think<br />

abouthow they treated it.<br />

Theregional and districtcouncil<br />

both had responsibilityfor it, as well<br />

as the community, he said.<br />

Thecreekwill be partofa<br />

workshop discussion that could<br />

include targeted rates for the<br />

Tinwald community.

Hinds hall needs new blood<br />

LINDA.CLARKE<br />

@ashburtoncourier.co.nz<br />

Some of the original<br />

volunteers who helped bring<br />

the HindsCommunity Centre<br />

to fruition 40 years ago are<br />

hopinganew generation of<br />

villagers will pick up the<br />

mantle.<br />

Stuart Wilson and his wife<br />

Betty, Rosa Bennett, Lorraine<br />

Baughan and Ruth Sheppard<br />

have been on the hall<br />

committee or supporting the<br />

hall since 1975.<br />

Theyare looking to retire or<br />

ease back from the group,<br />

along with Jo Luxton. The<br />

Rangitata MP livesatHinds<br />

has been secretary­treasurer<br />

for the groupand her husband<br />

Matt president, but more<br />

duties as electorate MP will<br />

leave little time for her to be<br />

on the hall committee.<br />

The community hall has<br />

been wellused over the years.<br />

It was built in two parts,the<br />

smallersupper room first,<br />

followed by the larger hall and<br />

meeting room.<br />

Mr Wilson said the complex<br />

had regular users and was<br />

hired for private functions,<br />

like weddings. It had been<br />

built with funds raised mostly<br />

in the community,including<br />

$300,000 fundraised by agroup<br />

known simply as the Hinds<br />

The Hinds Community Centreneeds anew generation ofhelpers.<br />

ladies’catering group.<br />

The supper room was<br />

openedin1978 and the main<br />

hall in 1983.<br />

Mr Wilson said Hinds was a<br />

naturalgathering spotfor the<br />

southern part of the district.<br />

The complex, which also<br />

included asmaller meeting<br />

room, were used by the<br />

adjoining squash club, the<br />

Lions service club, Women’s<br />

Institute and adinnerclub. It<br />

was also booked for events<br />

hosted by Fonterra, MHV<br />

Water and Environment<br />

Canterbury. It was also used<br />

regularly by Hinds School.<br />

He said the complex was in<br />

good condition though afew<br />

jobs neededattention.<br />

Manyofthe original<br />

committee membersare now<br />

in their 70s and have moved to<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> and Mr Wilson is<br />

hoping some new faces will<br />

Fresh outlook for hairdressers<br />

TONI.WILLIAMS<br />

@ashburtoncourier.co.nz<br />

Flowers and congratulatory<br />

messages this past week have<br />

reinforced BestDirection Hair<br />

Studio’s shift to Allentonasthe<br />

right move.<br />

It has moved to astand­alone<br />

premises at the busy shopping<br />

centre.<br />

Owner Judy Begg said seven<br />

weeks of no income due to<br />

Covid­19 had been hard and<br />

increasing rentalcosts were<br />

the final straw.<br />

BestDirection has had a<br />

presence in the CreekRoad<br />

shopping centre since it was<br />

openedbyoriginal owner<br />

Dean Kingan, in the mid­1970s.<br />

At the new site, Mrs Begg is<br />

joined by hairdressers Maree<br />

Robertson, who has been with<br />

Mrs Begg at Best Direction for<br />

the past 24 years,and Robyn<br />

Stockdale, who is renting a<br />

chair in the new premises.<br />

She said it was sad to have<br />

been put in aposition to move<br />

–she has owned the studiofor<br />

the past 25 years ­but looking<br />

to the future it was apositive<br />

change.<br />

They are looking forward to<br />

welcoming new and existing<br />

clients.<br />

The new facilitiesare warm<br />

and modern and deceptively<br />

big inside;there are eight<br />

chairs plus three bay wash and<br />

mirror on both sidesofthe<br />

room, with natural lighting<br />

annual general meeting on<br />

Friday nightat7pm, or make<br />

themselves known as willing<br />

helpers.<br />

Whilethe older committee<br />

members remained passionate<br />

about the village, new<br />

enthusiasm was needed from a<br />

new generation of people who<br />

had made Hinds and the<br />

surrounding districts home, he<br />

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR<br />

Secondbridge<br />

Some years ago Iwas talking to<br />

along­serving councillorand the<br />

conversationturned to the second<br />

bridge(beforethe final public<br />

announcement of location) which<br />

he saidthat therewas acoupleof<br />

factors why thebridge will never<br />

continueonfrom West Street.<br />

1. Thedecision and planning<br />

wasmade many years ago, whena<br />

by­passwas first decided.<br />

2. Transit NZ (orwhoever they<br />

were back then)said theywould<br />

not support abridge at the end of<br />

West Street or anyotherTransit<br />

roadasthey would have to<br />

maintain it.<br />

3. With the buildingofthe new<br />

industrialarea north or<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong>,one major<br />

requirement from Transit NZ was<br />

that only 20 per centofthe heavy<br />

trafficexiting from the mainroad<br />

wasallowed to enter backonto<br />

the main road, Chalmers Avenue<br />

is to takethe bulk of thistraffic as<br />

it is in direct line of the industrial<br />

areaandother industries.<br />

2300196<br />

Imentioned thistosome others<br />

in aconversationwho saidthatit<br />

is probably correctasSprayMark,<br />

before theybought the building<br />

they are in now,weretold by the<br />

council thatthe bridge would<br />

never go at the end of WestStreet,<br />

and this again is waybefore the<br />

“socalled”finaldecision.<br />

Is the councilgoingtowaittill<br />

all the protest is worn outbefore<br />

starting on the bridge, which will<br />

never happen,orisitafunding<br />

issue which Iwonder if aprivate<br />

company had been consideredto<br />

fundand build bridge/by­pass and<br />

makeitatoll bridge.<br />

People are our true<br />

community assets<br />

In my first column as the<br />

electorate MP for Rangitata, I<br />

wanted to say thank you. Thank<br />

you for voting for Jacinda Ardern,<br />

for Labour, and for myself.<br />

I’ve spent some time since the<br />

election reflecting on the last<br />

week, and indeed, the last few<br />

years. What sticks out to me most<br />

throughout this crazy ride is the<br />

people.<br />

He aha te mea nui oteao. What<br />

is the most important thing in the<br />

world?<br />

He tangata, he tangata, he<br />

tangata. It is the people, it is the<br />

people, it is the people.<br />

My husband and my family,<br />

whom have been my sounding<br />

board and carers. My team of<br />

volunteers and supporters, whom<br />

have backed and encouraged me.<br />

And of course, the people of<br />

Rangitata. You have put your faith<br />

in me, and this is not something<br />

that Iwill ever take for granted.<br />

Thank you.<br />

This area has not had an elected<br />

Labour Member of Parliament<br />

since Horrace Herring in 1935.<br />

The enormity of the result on<br />

election night is not lost on me, I<br />

am humbled in the support of this<br />

electorate.<br />

Ilove this place. Having lived<br />

here for over 24 years, raising my<br />

children here, owning businesses<br />

here, it is home. Iwant to see the<br />

people here thrive and grow, and<br />

be the best they can be.<br />

Isee the huge potential, the<br />

success stories that happen every<br />

day, and Isee the challenges that<br />

we face too. There is no doubt,<br />

there is work to be done. As<br />

Jacinda Ardern said in her speech<br />

on election night, the Labour<br />

Party will be aparty that governs<br />

for every New Zealander. This is<br />

my intention for Rangitata ­we<br />

need representation for every<br />

person in this electorate, from<br />

every walk of life.<br />

It is going to be hard work, but<br />

Iamabsolutely up for the<br />

challenge and committed to this<br />

place and our people.<br />

This Friday Iwill be attending<br />

my first event in <strong>Ashburton</strong> as the<br />

MP for Rangitata –and Ican’t<br />

think of amore perfect event<br />

than the presentation of the<br />

Community Honours Awards,<br />

celebrating Mid Cantabrians that<br />

make significant contributions to<br />

our community voluntary sector.<br />

These are people that go the<br />

extra mile, work hard on the<br />

ground, and are true assets to our<br />

community. It will be apleasure<br />

to attend and acknowledge them.<br />

Iamlooking forward to<br />

continuing on with the ground<br />

work that Ihave already done as<br />

aList MP, to continue building<br />

relationships with the<br />

community in order to be astrong<br />

advocate in Wellington. Iwant to<br />

hear your stories, your<br />

challenges, your successes.<br />

Iaminthe very beginning<br />

phases of establishing my<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> office, hiring staff and<br />

gearing up to be the best MP Ican<br />

be, at the heart of Government, to<br />

deliver for Rangitata.<br />

Volunteer of the month Alison Donald.<br />

Fromanearly ageAlison<br />

Donald, theVolunteering Mid &<br />

South Canterbury and the Hotel<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> Volunteer of the<br />

Month, has wanted to helpand<br />

carefor others.<br />

It brings her alot of<br />

satisfaction.<br />

‘‘I like helping othersand I<br />

guess it’s always been like<br />

that,’’ she said.<br />

Alison's daysare busy<br />

whetheritisthrough formal<br />

volunteeringwith avariety of<br />

organisations, serving through<br />

her involvement with the St<br />

Alison's various voluntary<br />

roles included one she started<br />

through the suggestion of a<br />

friend who said to her one day<br />

that district nurses had Red<br />

Cross volunteers accompany<br />

them on their evening rounds.<br />

Her friendsuggested this<br />

might be agood volunteering<br />

role for Alison.<br />

Alison,who wantedtobe a<br />

nurse, thought it would indeed<br />

be agood rolefor her so signed<br />

up. She did it foreightyears<br />

beforethe hospital decided to<br />

discontinue the programme<br />

earlierthis year.<br />

Alison's firstvolunteer role<br />

wasasadriver forwhat is now<br />

Elizabeth St DayCare. It's a<br />

volunteer role shereally<br />

enjoys, and she says she has<br />

metsome lovely people through<br />

thisvolunteering.<br />

In her informal volunteering<br />

she also takes awoman to<br />

Hearing Association meetings<br />

andatanannual meetingtwo<br />

years ago, her name was put<br />

forward to join thecommittee,<br />

which she agreed to do.<br />

Alison also has apassionfor<br />

Alison took up the health<br />

Animation helping<br />

farmers adopt change<br />

LINDA.CLARKE<br />

@ashburtoncourier.co.nz<br />

The Dunedin animation<br />

company that brought<br />

thrillingcomputer graphics<br />

to America’s Cup racing and<br />

other major world sports is<br />

helping Mid Canterbury<br />

farmers see how their<br />

changing land management<br />

practices are impacting the<br />

environment long­term.<br />

Animation Research<br />

founderIan Taylor says<br />

farmers will be able to use<br />

the technology to easily see<br />

the effects of different crops<br />

and stocking rates on thesoil<br />

and waterways and how it<br />

impacts farm budgets.<br />

Mr Taylor was in<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> recently to talkto<br />

farmers about how they<br />

could make best useofthe<br />

digital highway.<br />

He usedhis own company<br />

as an example.<br />

Animation Research<br />

started in 1989, usingdigital<br />

data off the back of the<br />

America’s Cup boats to<br />

create images for spectators.<br />

It expanded to produce<br />

graphics for other sports,<br />

like golf and American<br />

football, but those contracts<br />

were cancelled whencovid<br />

hit andthe company’s crews<br />

came home to Dunedin.<br />

There, over acouple of<br />

months, theyfigured out how<br />

they could do those same<br />

jobs remotely,saving money<br />

on international travel and<br />

accommodation.<br />

Mr Taylor said the idea had<br />

beendiscussed prior to the<br />

pandemic butcustomersdid<br />

not see acompelling reason<br />

to change.‘‘It took Covid­19<br />

to make people realise you<br />

could do it, andnow<br />

everyone wants to do it.’’<br />

The company has been<br />

workingonavisualisation<br />

project with AgResearch for<br />

overayear: Hyperfarm was<br />

previewed to farmers at last<br />

year’sFieldays but is not yet<br />

ready forcommercial use.<br />

It uses data collected from<br />

farms, science and<br />

regulators like Environment<br />

Canterbury, to model<br />

changes.<br />

Mr Taylor said Animation<br />

Research turned the data<br />

into pictures so farmers<br />

could see the effects of their<br />

decisions over 15 years in<br />

just10seconds.<br />

While 15 years was ashort<br />

timeframe to dealwith<br />

farmingissues like nitrate<br />

leaching and water quality,<br />

the animation technology<br />

was atool that could give<br />

themapositive start to<br />

change.<br />

He said food producers<br />

like farmers were important<br />

for thecountry. ‘‘This is a<br />

hugeopportunity that covid<br />

has given us. Food willbethe<br />

verylast thing people stop<br />

buying and the lockdown<br />

provedthat.’’<br />

He said it wasasmart<br />

move to combine sustainable<br />

practices and technology.<br />

‘‘We needtostop fighting,<br />

look after the landand be the<br />

best at high value food<br />

production.’’<br />

AgResearch senior<br />

scientist Seth Laurenson<br />

said Hyperfarmhadbeen<br />

progressed steadily since<br />

last year.<br />

‘‘Central to this is<br />

achieving the best<br />

integration between the<br />

science platform andthe<br />

visual technologies on offer.<br />

We’ve also beenlooking<br />

further afield to new<br />

partnerships to growand<br />

share the potential of this<br />

tool, including with iwi<br />

around the country.’’<br />

Aprototype version could<br />

be available to aselectgroup<br />

of userstotrial in June 2021.<br />

He said humans were<br />

visual creatures and that<br />

presented an opportunity to<br />

show in visual form what<br />

decision­making would mean<br />

for their land,the<br />

environment and their bank<br />

balances.<br />

‘‘We thinkthis is atool that<br />

will make our science more<br />

accessible to peoplewho<br />

want to improve their<br />

practices and environmental<br />

footprint, but are unsure<br />

about best to do that.<br />

Carefully balancing the<br />

visual representation and<br />

the right level of scientific<br />

information to enable<br />

decision­making is acentral<br />

focus for our team.’’<br />

Shop around to get the<br />

best electricity prices<br />

BY ROGER SUTTON<br />

EA Networks CEO<br />

Theelectricityindustry and<br />

howmuchyou pay for your<br />

complicated, so I'd liketomake<br />

The keything to remember is<br />

YOUthe customercan make big<br />

savings. Here's how...<br />

First thingsfirst, EA<br />

Networks is ownedbyyou, the<br />

customer. We areacooperative.<br />

We ownthe poles,<br />

underground cables and<br />

substations thatkeep the power<br />

flowing aroundthe district.<br />

Profits we make are either<br />

reinvested in thenetwork to<br />

improve its reliabilityor<br />

returned to you as adiscount on<br />

your electricity charges.<br />

So, thisishow it works. The<br />

generatorssell power to the<br />

retailers who billyou.Our costs<br />

make up about 40 percentof<br />

your power bill.<br />

Earlierthis year we reduced<br />

ourpricesby14 per centasour<br />

costs camedown.<br />

Frustratingly for us, many<br />

electricity retailers didn’t pass<br />

ourdecrease in pricesthrough<br />

Weasked ourstafftoshow us<br />

the same retailer for many<br />

about power prices.Kim is a<br />

smallerresidentialuserwith<br />

average monthlybill of $100,<br />

even Kim is forecast to save<br />

nearly $300 ayearjust by<br />

switching.<br />

Findingthe cheapest<br />

The websitePowerSwitch.org.<br />

Garage book remembered<br />

MICK.JENSEN<br />

@ashburtoncourier.co.nz<br />

Arecent photo of theformer Mid<br />

Canterbury TransportbuildingonMoore<br />

Street in thispaper has rekindled<br />

memories for local historybuff John<br />

Carter.<br />

Mr Carter was partofahistory group<br />

set up 20 years agotodocumentgarages<br />

in the district.<br />

He laterco­wrote andedited abook<br />

called<strong>Ashburton</strong>Garages with Viv<br />

Hanson.<br />

Garages had come and goneinthe<br />

district overthe last 100 or so years, said<br />

Mr Carter, andthey helped tell their own<br />

story.<br />

He said the garage book had come<br />

about after the formationaninterest<br />

groupofretired garageownersand<br />

mechanics.<br />

Those with garage history in their<br />

veinshad included CliffHorrell, Bruce<br />

Smallbone andTom Pearsonand others<br />

who had submitted photos and shared<br />

stories.<br />

The<strong>Ashburton</strong> Garage History Group<br />

had held meetings at the <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

Vintage Car clubroomsand regular<br />

gatherings, he said.<br />

Thegrouphad set up garagelocation<br />

maps of the districttogether with an<br />

indexshowing who had owned the<br />

garagesoverthe years, said Mr Carter.<br />

‘‘A lot of knowledge waspooled at<br />

thosemeetingsand it formed the basisof<br />

the book, which followedanearlier<br />

pictorial history book.<br />

‘‘Viv and Iresearched things over a<br />

coupleofyears andtalkedto peopleand<br />

there was alot of good support behind<br />

us.’’<br />

Some of the photos in the book are<br />

from 1914/15and show<strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

businesses were quick to adapt to the<br />

change from horseorcycleand to motor<br />

vehicles, withgarages starting at various<br />

businesses such as cycle dealers, livery<br />

stablesand blacksmiths.<br />

Local historian John Carter flicks through old garage photos used in the book.<br />

Mr Carter said there were not too many<br />

of the old mechanics and garage owners<br />

left alive these daysand if thebook had<br />

notbeen compiled at the time, alotof<br />

knowledge would havebeenlost.<br />

The garage book had been re­printed<br />

twice becauseofdemandand still<br />

provoked memories for local people.<br />

Mr Carter said 300 original garage<br />

related photos submitted for thebook<br />

had been giftedto<strong>Ashburton</strong> Museum<br />

for safe keeping andpreservation.<br />

Message From ThePrincipal<br />

Red Carpet Evening<br />

Last Thursday we had our annual Red Carpet<br />

Evening. This is ahighlight ofour musical year,<br />

where our top performers are invited to present<br />

to their whānau and our community. As we all<br />

appreciate, there have been few opportunities<br />

for any kind of performance that involves even a<br />

limited audience this year. Itwas agreat night. I<br />

wouldlike to thank all ourperformers and,most importantly,the Music<br />

Departmentstaff,itinerant musicteachersand thestudent’sown music<br />

teachers.Withoutthem, such an evening would not be possible.<br />

Te WhareManaaki<br />

As partofour consideration of our College campuswehaveundertaken<br />

arebranding exercise with our Student Learning Support Unit. This<br />

facility, awelcome part ofour College, has always been known asthe<br />

SLSU. After due consultation, we have decided that amore relevant<br />

name is ‘Te Whare Manaaki’. Mythanks gotoour students and their<br />

parents/caregivers for their input into this decision. Aspart ofour<br />

new build the students will, inthe future, enjoy apurpose-built facility,<br />

however the name Te Whare Manaaki will be retained within the new<br />

facility.<br />

College Charterand Strategic DocumentReview<br />

We have undertaken arecentreview of ourCollege Charter andstrategic<br />

documents. These areobviously key documents for<strong>Ashburton</strong> College<br />

as we look towards thefuture.<br />

At itssimplest form thereare twofuture trends thatweare preparing our<br />

studentsfor. The first of these is thatthe worldofworkand employment<br />

is likely to be very different for asignificant portion of our population.<br />

Soft skills such as collaboration, creativity and oral communication will<br />

become increasingly important. We are working towards achanged<br />

future. This year, the widespread use of Zoom technology was aclear<br />

example of howquicklyfuture changes mayarrive.<br />

The second recognition is that our Mid Canterbury and global<br />

communities are becoming increasingly diverse. Inthe future, tobe<br />

good global citizens, people will need to be more culturally responsive<br />

and acceptingofdiversity. Inboth cases we areplanningfor adifferent<br />

future.<br />

College Roll<br />

Ourrollcontinuestogrow. Ournumber of students means that we are<br />

able to offer afull and wide range of academic and vocational courses.<br />

This trend is,inpart, recognition thatthe employmentprospectsinMid<br />

Canterbury are healthy and that housing is affordable in comparison<br />

with other regions. Partofthe rationale forour new build is recognition<br />

by MinistryofEducation thatthis trendwill continue, and will mirrorthe<br />

growthinmanyofour localprimaryschools.<br />

Final Assemblies<br />

This term is always frantic with many scheduled events, deadlines<br />

and recognitions. Wealways enjoy the final assemblies, especially our<br />

Year 13 Graduation. We look forward tohaving you join us for this<br />

celebration on 5November <strong>2020</strong> at the <strong>Ashburton</strong> Trust EventCentre.<br />

Staff vStudents Chess Match–<br />

Fourth ConsecutiveVictory to the Staff!<br />

Held on the ChessboardonFriday, 16 <strong>October</strong>,this annual eventwas again<br />

held according to apre-drawn historical set game ofChess but with the<br />

shifting and removalofchess players aided by copious amounts of water!<br />

We are assured that this annual end-of-year event started asavery formal<br />

affair,with players wearing‘boards’depicting their positions. At somestage<br />

it morphed into the event itistoday, always alot of fun, and providing<br />

wonderful opportunities for students todouse staff and vice versa. Itcan<br />

be challenging to distinguish between staff and students when it comesto<br />

enthusiasm and water skills.<br />

As is also traditional, the staff moves are made by astaff member who is<br />

leaving College. Jason Vannini, Master of Ceremonies, said this person is<br />

usually along-serving older staff member, well-respected and leaving<br />

College at theend of the year. Mary-Anne Evers fittedthe last twoofthese<br />

criteria!<br />

Staff Acknowledge Pink ShirtDay<br />

Friday 16<strong>October</strong> was Pink Shirt Day, amovement started inthe USA<br />

to promote acceptance and anti-bullying. This is atheme which has<br />

been continued in other countries, with our staff keen to support<br />

and to wear something pink to highlight this message.This was wellsupported<br />

atCollege and (pictured above) is asample group of staff,<br />

in varying levels of pink, proud to promote acceptance, inclusiveness<br />

and anti-bullying.

Wastebustersisencouraging<br />

gardeners to bring green waste to its<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> facility andhelp the<br />

district’s juniorsports at the same<br />

time.<br />

Forevery $8 spent discarding<br />

green waste, Wastebusters is giving<br />

customers atoken to put towards the<br />

sport of their choice. When the token<br />

box is full, the sport receives $500.<br />

Wastebusters owners Brent<br />

McLaren said rugby’s box wasfull<br />

just beforelockdown and wasfilling<br />

fast asecond.<br />

Mr McLaren handed over a<br />

cheque for $500 to Mid Canterbury<br />

Rugby Union boss IanPatterson,<br />

with the money to be used<br />

specifically for junior development.<br />

Netball would receivethe same<br />

amount next month and hockey$500<br />

in December, he said.<br />

Mr McLaren said he was keen to<br />

see the green waste flow in to<br />

Wastebusters, so thathecould then<br />

continue to support local junior<br />

sport.<br />

There are 14 token boxes near the<br />

weigh station each supporting sports<br />

like football, cycling,rowing,<br />

cricket, tennis, softball, swimming,<br />

hockey andathletics.Someboxes<br />

double up sports with less<br />

participation numbers.<br />

Mr McLaren saidseveral<br />

commercial operators regularly<br />

bought green waste to Wastebusters<br />

and plenty of households had done<br />

so after lockdown.<br />

He said it was great to be helping<br />

junior sport, especially when some<br />

fundraising sources had dried up.<br />

He was keen to see more businesses<br />

jump on board with him, like Best<br />

Signs haddonerecently.<br />

Covid­19 has forced internationalsquash<br />

pro Daniel Sharplin to rethinkhis shorttermoptions.<br />

The formerHindslad is returning to New<br />

Zealand from the UnitedStates, along with<br />

his British wife, Caroline, and children<br />

Jacob, 15 and Millie,13, to take time out over<br />

summer away fromthe globalpandemic.<br />

They arrive in NewZealand on November<br />

12 and will quarantine until November 26.<br />

The familywill be based in Christchurch<br />

andhavealreadylined up activities of<br />

interest for the teens in thecity.<br />

‘‘The kids have not been at their school<br />

since March (currently 100per cent online),<br />

andthe school courts Iwork out of arestill<br />

closedaswell.’’<br />

The childrenwereonthe computer each<br />

day from 7.30am to 2.15pm, he said.<br />

‘‘We were in lockdownfrom March­July,<br />

so Iwas unabletowork, at all, overthat<br />

period.Although we are only 40 minutes<br />

north of Boston, the rules vary from state­tostate<br />

and the covid rates in NewHampshire<br />

are nowhere near as bad as they are in<br />

Massachusetts (Boston).<br />

‘‘Our socialactivitieshavedefinitely<br />

declined and with many businesses closed,<br />

or working at areduced capacity, it is all<br />

verysad and depressing,’’ Danielsaid.<br />

‘‘I am fortunatetobe working outofthree<br />

local clubs right now, butitis definitely<br />

challenging.Wehavebrutallycold and<br />

snowywintershere. Fluseason is coming<br />

and covid numbers are rising steadily each<br />

week, with an expected second surge<br />

approaching,’’hesaid.<br />

Daniel,aformer NewZealand<br />

Commonwealth Games representative, has<br />

beenliving in thestates for the past 19 years.<br />

The familynow liveinAtkinson, New<br />

Hampshire,population 7000.<br />

He opened the SquashfitAcademyin2016,<br />

coaching junior players from beginner<br />

through to some of the elite players in the<br />

country but also coachesthe Boys Varsity<br />

Team at Nobel andGreenough School.<br />

In recent years he has been contracted by<br />

the US Squashtobeheadcoach of the New<br />

England junior squad, madeupofthe best<br />

junior players in thefive states ­<br />

Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont,<br />

NewHampshire and Maine.<br />

‘‘The main focusofthe academy is to help<br />

seriousplayers get recruited to play college<br />

squash on teams at someofthe most<br />

prestigiousuniversities in thecountry, such<br />

as Harvard, Yale andPrinceton,’’ he said.<br />

‘‘I am proudtosay we have helped many,<br />

many playersrealise their dream of playing<br />

college squash.’’<br />

Daniel has spent more time lately<br />

coaching squash up to 30 hours aweek<br />

rather thanplaying; his last competitive<br />

tournament was theWorld Masters Champs<br />

in 2018.<br />

‘‘I made it to the last 16, butthen pinged<br />

my gracilis muscle in my leg and my<br />

tournamentwas over,’’ he said.<br />

Buthedoes like to test himself in match<br />

playagainst histwobestplayersaround<br />

twice aweek.<br />

‘‘I am managing to hold them off, butitis<br />

definitely getting harder,’’hesaid.<br />

It will be hischildren’s first timetoNew<br />

Zealand.<br />

‘‘They arenow at an agewhere they are<br />

very interested and excited so we are really<br />

looking forward to it. We feel like it will be<br />

agreat life experience for us all to enjoy as<br />

afamily,’’ he said.<br />

‘‘Millie is anational­level artistic<br />

swimmer who was asked to trial for the US<br />

National U15 team. We have already found<br />

acompetitive programme in Christchurch<br />

for her and she is verymuch lookingforward<br />

to competing in theNZNationals in mid­<br />

December in Hamilton.’’<br />

‘‘Jacobmadethe NewHampshire State<br />

U15 soccer team this year,but basketball is<br />

his number one passion. ‘‘Heplays in year<br />

round AAU Leagues and was recently<br />

invited to attend acollege showcase event<br />

that waslivestreamed to respectivecollege<br />

coaches aroundthe country. He is also adiehard<br />

BostonCeltics fan andwenormally go<br />

to quite afew games, which is so much fun!<br />

‘‘Taking in all of these factors and having<br />

not hadaNew Zealand summersince 1990,<br />

we thought it was agreat opportunity for us<br />

to expose thekidstodifferent training<br />

philosophies and competition, meet new<br />

and old friends, and basicallyjust enjoy the<br />

New Zealand way of lifefor awhile.’’<br />

The Sharplins plan to be backinNew<br />

Zealand over summer and will reassess<br />

early next year.<br />

‘‘I will be running some summercamps<br />

and trying to getout to some clubs in a<br />

coaching rolefor MidlandsSquash while I<br />

am home. We will be keeping an eye on what<br />

is happeningback in the US and will<br />

reassess things in February,’’ he said.<br />

They have chosen to base themselves in<br />

Christchurch,asachance to have a‘‘totally<br />

different lifestyle for awhile’’but are<br />

already planning regular trips to visit<br />

grandparents Dawn and Neilin<strong>Ashburton</strong>.<br />

‘‘Welive in the woods in New Hampshire<br />

so Carolinethought it would be fun to live in<br />

the city and have atotally different lifestyle<br />

for awhile.’’<br />

LIONS CLUB OF<br />

ASHBURTON<br />

President Roger Paterson presided over a<br />

good attendance for our club’s annual quiz<br />

night.<br />

Special guest was Sir Richard Hadlee,<br />

who joined us for tea at our usual venue Hotel<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong>. The meeting stood for aminute’s<br />

silence for the passing away of club member<br />

Graeme Hathaway and President Roger<br />

spoke of other club members’ welfare.<br />

Bruce Ferriman reported on the upcoming<br />

golf tournament. Lists circulated included; club<br />

visits, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, playhouse<br />

raffle and the use of the club’s food<br />

trailer being hired on Saturday 7November by<br />

Talleys.<br />

Ash Shah gave his three-minute speech<br />

and commented on how he could not believe<br />

to be dining with one of his icons Sir Richard<br />

Hadlee. Coming from India, he took great<br />

interest in his two other iconic Kiwis Sir<br />

Edmund Hilary and Rachel Hunter!<br />

The quiz, organised by Colin Morgan<br />

proved very successful with club members<br />

and Sir Richard Hadlee really enjoying the<br />

relaxed atmosphere and fun component.<br />

The Big Smoke Rural Folk sub-committee<br />

met for apreliminary meeting regarding next<br />

year’s event. The Social Committee are<br />

organising asocial gathering at the Hot Rod<br />

Club on November 1.<br />

The big ticket on the agenda for this month<br />

was the club’s annual golf tournament. Sir<br />

Richard Hadlee’s address was tremendous in<br />

terms of content and amusing anecdotes<br />

surrounding the game of cricket and players<br />

especially at international level.<br />

Two signed cricket bats were auctioned at<br />

the breakfast and made avery good profit.<br />

Following the breakfast Sir Richard was taken<br />

to the <strong>Ashburton</strong> Aviation Museum and<br />

received a personalised tour by museum<br />

stalwart Warren Janett and Owen Moore<br />

before Sir Richard played in the golf tournament<br />

itself.<br />

The golf tournament consisted ofapproximately<br />

130 players and got under way at<br />

11am with the rain ‘holding off’. Organisers<br />

John Richards, George Brown, and Bruce<br />

Ferriman, along with agood backup committee,<br />

were delighted withthe way the day went.<br />

The beneficiaries, the Chris Ruth Trust,<br />

the Mountain Bike Park, and the <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

Lions Club Charitable Trust would each<br />

benefit approximately $5000.<br />

Players came from all over Canterbury to<br />

participate in the tournament which was won<br />

by Emily Wilson on45Stableford points, with<br />

Murray Wackrow and Sam Luscombe second<br />

equal on 39 points.<br />

Richard Hadlee teamed up with John<br />

Richards, tournament sponsors Darryl Philips<br />

from Darryl Philips Motors and Peter Lund of<br />

Midland Seeds. There is ashort video about<br />

the golf tournament available on the <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

WOODWORKERS<br />

Dave Strong welcomed guest demonstrator<br />

Adriaan Slooten from the Timaru<br />

Woodworkers Club along with the 20 club<br />

members.<br />

Show and Tell<br />

Geoff Brown: mulberry bowl.<br />

Dave Strong: aDspade handle.<br />

RogerScammell: two jewellery boxes, one<br />

with inlaid sections.<br />

Kevin Challis: bowl, ash table.<br />

Chris Thompson: two examplesofaLionel<br />

Jeffcote items to be re-furbished.<br />

Adriaan Slooten: several examples of a<br />

wavy vase, egg cups.<br />

Wim Melchers: a completed laburnum<br />

bowl with mushrooms.<br />

Adriaan Slooten then demonstrated how<br />

he creates egg cups, vaseswith awavy line at<br />

some point inablock of wood. He cut acurve<br />

in a block of wood then a thin section of<br />

contrasting wood on the band saw.<br />

Placing a moist paper towel this thin<br />

section was placed in the micro wave for<br />

approximately 20 seconds sothat it’s more<br />

flexible then glued between these two blocks<br />

and clamped tight, overnight.<br />

For the purpose of the demo he had<br />

another on hand which he proceeded to place<br />

one end in achuck and turn as normal.<br />

Using a gouge with a steep bevel he<br />

hollowed one end with the aid of a small<br />

cardboard template until the correct shape<br />

was created. Having the measurements of a<br />

previous egg cup he transferred those onto<br />

this example and proceeded tochisel away<br />

the unnecessary wood.<br />

To get the desired diameter calipers were<br />

used, as shown in the photo below. Asimple<br />

method to create interest and wonder. Wonder,<br />

how wood you do that to achieve a<br />

container like that? Thanks Adriaan, asimple<br />

solution for an effective look.<br />

ALLENTON BOWLS<br />

Wearable arts<br />

at Netherby<br />

Senior students at<br />

Netherby School<br />

have created and<br />

paradedsome<br />

impressive<br />

costumes at a<br />

wearable arts<br />

showcase.<br />

The event was<br />

heldin the school<br />

hallandstudents<br />

spent many hours<br />

creating, writing<br />

and orating their<br />

magnificent<br />

costumes.<br />

The wearablearts<br />

showwas<br />

postponed because<br />

of covid, butdrewa<br />

afull house last<br />

week.<br />

The event<br />

included music,<br />

dance andaproper<br />

catwalkfor all<br />

senior studentsto<br />

showcase their<br />

clever creations.<br />

They drew on the<br />

curriculum and<br />

focused on<br />

elements like<br />

language,pose,<br />

dance and<br />

movement, rhythm<br />

and beat, oration,<br />

design and<br />

measuring.<br />

Schoolprincipal<br />

PhilWheelersaid<br />

the wearable arts<br />

projecthad been<br />

highly engaging for<br />

all children.<br />

The theme was<br />

based on re­using,<br />

upcycling<br />

discarded clothing,<br />

paper andplastic<br />

waste and creating<br />

wearable art with it.<br />

The children had<br />

thoroughly enjoyed<br />

the entireprocess,<br />

he said.<br />

ECan still dealing<br />

with legacy issues<br />

Dealing with arange of historic<br />

legacy issues is one of the most<br />

difficult tasks Environment<br />

Canterbury (ECan) faces<br />

around the region, says chair<br />

Jenny Hughey.<br />

They were problems<br />

Cantabrians and councils had<br />

been unable to sort out and<br />

caused by actions taken some<br />

time ago.<br />

They are stilltickingaway in<br />

the background and,<br />

unfortunately, are unlikelyto<br />

go away any timesoon, she<br />

said.<br />

‘‘By legacy issues, we mostly<br />

mean sites thatpose an<br />

environmental and/or safety<br />

and health risk to others,<br />

especially hazardous or<br />

contaminated sitessuch as old<br />

community landfills, tyre piles,<br />

and toxic substance dumps.<br />

‘‘The soils and wateraround<br />

thesesites may be highly<br />

contaminated by poisonous<br />

substances that have been<br />

leaching from old paint tins,<br />

enginebatteries, animal<br />

Anya Walker walks down the catwalk in her<br />

wearable arts costume.<br />

In this Eiffel Tower creation is Ruby<br />

Bartlett.<br />

carcasses and the like over<br />

many decades.<br />

‘‘There are also sites where<br />

dangerouschemicals were<br />

once used in the forestry and<br />

horticulture industries, or<br />

whereold asbestos has been<br />

dumped, at whichthe ground<br />

remains poisoned and posesa<br />

potential health risk.<br />

Mrs Hughes said there were<br />

good recordsofwherethe<br />

legacy issues and sites were<br />

across the region.<br />

The ECan websiteincluded a<br />

listed land use register and a<br />

series of technical reports on<br />

contamination –information<br />

whichhas been collected and<br />

verifiedfor manyyears.<br />

However there are always<br />

goingtobesome nasty<br />

surprises as new legacy­issue<br />

siteswere revealed while<br />

others were resolved.<br />

‘‘We are working hardon<br />

resolving all our known issues,<br />

but it will be along timebefore<br />

we can say, with any great<br />

confidence, “case closed”.<br />
