Move to

protect

airfield

Little Brix is in peak form

By SHELLEY TOPP

Efforts to safeguardthe future of

Rangiora Airfield are behind the

Waimakariri DistrictCouncil’s

decision to buyanadjoining property.

The purchaseofthe 1.9­hectare

MertonRoadblock, which includes a

house, willnot resultinalengthening

of the runway.

Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon

saidthe mainrunway wasextended in

2005.

‘‘The length is sufficientfor the

aircraft thatuse,orare likelytouse,

the airfield.Consequently, thereare

no planstoextendthe runway.’’

The councildoes not intend to have

long­term ownership of the property,

he says. ‘‘Whenitissold therewill be

appropriate covenantsonthe titleto

protect thelong­term operation of the

airfield.’’

He would not disclosethe purchase

price.

‘‘The council doesnot disclosethe

purchase price of properties as this

could affectthe eventualresale.’’

Although the runway willnot be

extended,future development of the

council­owned andoperated airfieldis

expected to include an increase in air

traffic volume.

In 2018, the councillookedtoimpose

65 decibel (dBA) and 55dBAnoise

contoursaroundthe airfield.

The council’sDistrict Plan Review

committee recently approved the

contours, with no appeals lodged

againstthe noise contours.

The airfield is recognised as a

strategic asset in Environment

Canterbury’s regionalpolicy

statement.

Champion of the summit ... There is nothing like an invigorating climb up amountain to make adog’s day. Brix, aCairn terrier­Jack

Russell cross, added Mt Richardson, near Oxford, to her list of conquests on Labour Day. Brix took the climb to the top in her little

stride, accompanied by Annabelle Latz. The well­travelled family dog has climbed Mt Richardson, Mt Thomas, Mt Grey and Mt Oxford

at least once this year, as she helps Annabelle prepare for the Tarawera Ultramarathon 10­miler in Rotorua in February. Despite her

limited stature, Brix never needs to be carried during mountain runs, and leaves Annabelle in awe of her ability to descend technically

demanding trails at speed. ‘‘I wish Icould do it as fast as she does.’’

Championship for asecond year.

Allan'smotto is `be prepared'

Preparing foranemergency is as important as

dealingwithone. AllanGriggisawareofthis

and all thedetails in between.

He is anew face for some at the Hurunui

District Council,and afamiliar face for others.

With his hat on as emergency management

officer(EMO), he will be working with council

and the district’s communities, providing

educationand support aroundrisk

management, response methods, and

community resilience.

“It’s about helpingcommunitiesprepare for

and recoverfrom adverse events

such as floods, earthquakes, strong

wind events, fires,and tsunamis, to

name just afew. It couldeven be a

meteorite strike.”

Allan had adualrole during his

previous eight­year tenureatthe

council, as EMO and principalrural

fire officer.

For thepast two years he has been

with the Ministry of Civil Defence

Emergency Management (CDEM),

based in Christchurch, as regional

adviserbetweenthe National CivilDefence

office and CDEM organisations in the West

Coast, Nelson, Marlborough and Tasman

regions. “Themain mission was to provide

CDEM advice.”

Allan said it was agreat way to gainagreater

appreciation of the links between local

communitiesand national­levelemergency

management. “Thebetterpreparedalocal

community is,the more resources they will

receive. It all comes down to the flowof

informationofwhat communities need.”

Allan is nowthrilled to be backinrurallife

in Hurunui. “It’s absolutely fantastic being

back. Especiallythe one­minute commute to

the office. I’m looking forward to reconnecting

with people in this great community, whom I

have workedwith before.”

Allan has takenaslight side­step in hisfirefighting

capacity, too,being amember of the

Amberley Volunteer Fire Brigadefor more

than two years.

When he was principalruralfire officer, he

managed 100 ruralfire officers throughout

Hurunui.

“There is agreat level of fellowship

in the brigade, it’s agreatbunch

of people.Fire­fighting allows youto

develop and improve yourself

physically andmentally.”

Thereisone significant similarity

between fire­fighting and CDEM

work.“Relationships and

preparation are absolutely critical.”

The first part of 2021 will be busy

for Allan, working withcommunities

to create theirown response teams.

“It’sabout coming togetherwith

communities,lookingattheir risk profile, what

will potentially endanger them,what their

actionplan will be, and what resources they

currentlyhave,and need.”

He cannot emphasise enough the importance

for communities to get to know the risks at their

own home. “I say, lookaround you, whatcan

you do to reduce you own risk?”

One example is reducing the riskofwildfires.

“Don’tlet debris stay under your deck. Most

fires tendtoburn through ember transfer.

Clean your gutters, and keepdebris away from

the house.Choose non­flammable plants.”

Mayor will

push local

interests

By DAVID HILL

Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon

says he looks forward to working

with the incoming government

‘‘to further the district’s

interests’’.

Election­nightresultsgave the

Labour Partyaclearmajority

with 64 seats, while the Green

Partyhas 10 seats.

‘‘We lookforward to working

with the newly re­elected

government,whatever its final

make­up is, and we will continue

to work withour two local

(National) MPs Matt Doocey and

Stuart Smith.’’

Mr Gordon saysthe council

will continue to push for public

transport solutions and for

support for major road projects.

‘‘Thetransportinvestment in

this district is importanttous,

and that includes theWoodend

Bypass, the Woodend safety

improvements, the

improvements at Tram Rd and

the Skew Bridge upgrade.’’

Another priority is working

with the CanterburyDistrict

Health Board for extended hours

at the new medical centre

proposed for Rangiora.

‘‘We’re waiting to get it signed

off by the Minister (of Health)

and once the new minister is

confirmed, Iwill be making

contact to follow up.’’

The Greater Christchurch

Partnership will also be seeking

to establish an urban growth

agreementwith the government.

Mr Gordon saysthe council is

also looking forward to working

with the government on

freshwater and threewaters

reforms, as wellasstarting work

on the Kaiapoi stormwater

project, which has $9 million in

stimulus funding from central

government.

Otherpriorities for the council

include continuing to work on

the 2021/31Long Term Plan and

the District Plan, due to go out

for consultationinMarch.

Mr Gordon saysheisunsure

whether Labourwill go it alone

or enter anew coalition withthe

Greens. ‘‘Obviously it can be

easier to govern alone if you have

the numbers, but Ialso like to see

the partiescollaborating and it

wouldgive them astronger

mandate.’’

Garden club marks 75 years

By DAVID HILL

The Woodend Garden Clubisset to mark

its 75th anniversarynext week.

PresidentShirleyWheeler saidthe

WorldWar 2, when somelocal ladies

were lookingfor social outings.

‘‘They were farmers’ wives with the

Anglican church in Woodend and they

decided to form agarden circle.’’

In the early years,the club met in an

old Anglican church halluntil it burnt

down.

‘‘When Istarted going, the oldhall was

stillthere.There was no heaterinthose

days,sointhe winter there was aroster of

who tookwood for the fire.’’

Afterthe fire,the club met in the

Methodist churchhall and thenthe

bowlingclub, until the membership

outgrew the venue.

The Woodend Community Centre

opened at the right time and the club has

been meetingthere eversince.

‘‘We tried runninggarden competitions

for awhile, but people were abit shy

about entering their gardens,soitwas

hard work,’’ Mrs Wheeler says.

‘‘But when we did do it, it was great, but

we haven’t had them for years.’’

More successfulwas the club’s

involvement with the Canterbury

Horticultural Society, including putting

together displaysaspart of festivals on

the Avon River and in Victoria Square in

Christchurch.

Ahighlight was winning asilver medal

pride to thinkwewere there doingthat,

and the local businesseswere very good

at supporting us.’’

In recent years theclub has taken over

the running of the WoodendSpring

Flower Show in partnership with the

By DAVID HILL

Kaiapoi High School is celebrating its

growing Pasifika community.

The schoolwill holdits firstMaoriand

Pasifika prize­givingand celebration on

Tuesday evening as it recognises its

growing multi­cultural schoolroll,

principalBruce Kearney says.

‘‘We havetraditionallybeen abi­cultural

school, with astrongEuropean and Maori

presence,but what we are finding is that,

as our school rollgrows, so is our cultural

diversity,and it’s fantastic.’’

Next year the schoolisset to welcomea

record 250year 9pupils, including several

youngpeople from Pacific Island families.

Year 13 pupil EmmaKennar has been

the school’s Pasifika studentleaderthis

year and is proud of her culture.

‘‘As aprincipal,young peoplelike Emma

are gold as they allow young peopleto

believe in themselves,’’ Mr Kearneysays.

‘‘We don’t wantMaori and Pasifika

students to conform. We wantthem to take

prideinthemselves and their culture and

to evolve.’’

Emma says the Pasifika student group

brings together amix of cultures, including

Samoan, Tongan, Fijian, CookIslands and

‘‘mixed race’’ individuals.

‘‘We are mostly girls. The boysare still a

bit shy to be themselves, but we want them

to know it’sOKtobeyourself.

‘‘I came here in year 10 fromSamoaand

Iused to get bullied because Iwas the

‘Pakeha girl’ and Icouldn’t speak

Samoan.’’

Emma has beenworking with deputy

head studentWaiora Brooks and deputy

principalElizabeth McMeeken to plan the

Maoriand Pasifika evening.

‘‘It’s going to be so cool,’’Waiora says.

STUART SMITH MP FOR KAIKOURA

Tough choices ahead

The drawn­out election campaign has

come to an end and congratulations must

go to the prime minister, who ranagood

race and was rewarded with asecond

term.

Thankyou to the people of the

Kaikouraelectorate for your support.

We are fortunate to liveinsuch a

wonderful place, which will come

through the lockdown recovery period

better than most.

We havefantastic farmers and

supporting industries thatwill be major

contributorstoour economic recovery.

We now wait for the Government to be

sworninand to reveal its 100­dayplan,

whichwill set the scene and tone for our

recovery.

One thing we learnt from the 2017

election is that promises are easy to

make,but hard to deliver on. We cannot

afford to makethat mistake again.

Delivery is crucial and the Government

must deliver this time.

Childpovertywas akey issue in 2017

and, unfortunately, six out of nine child

poverty indicatorshaveworsened in the

last three years.

Ahuge concernofmineisthe

significantamount of school time that

students have missedover the last six

months. This will need to be made up as

education is crucial in promotingbetter

outcomes for children experiencing

material hardship. The Government must

have aplan to ensurethis happens.

Debate win

An AshgroveSchool team of Year 8pupils,

Perri Stevenson, Alex Ellerm and Matilda

Fauth, won the North Canterbury interschool

debating competition.

The team beat Ohoka School in the final.

‘‘The debatewas fantastic to listen to as

bothteams heldtheir ground well,’’

teacherand team coachMeganCherry

said. ‘‘However, Ashgrovewere better with

the rebuttals and the interjections.’’

The debate was anew experience for all

three team members, Perrisays.

‘‘Wehad never debated against another

school before. MrsCherry has been

supporting andpushing us as well as our

parents,’’ she says.

‘‘Honestly we just jumped into debating

so we could try somethingnew andnext

Housing is alsoahuge issue that needs

to be addressed. We need to build alot

more of them.

However,wefound out that being a

housing developer is not easy.Kiwibuild

was an abjectfailure,even with the

resourcesofthe Government behind it.

Only afew houses were built and they

don’t even meetthe standard that

HousingNew Zealand requires to go into

their pool.

Reforming the ResourceManagement

Act is long overdue and this would enable

morehousestobebuilt far more quickly,

as well as requiring councilstopermit

morehousing.

Climatechange wasalso akey issue in

2017, as it is today, but our emissions

increasedover the last threeyears and

are forecast to continue rising throughto

2025.

Now that the campaign is over Ihave

timetoread Bjorn Lomborg’s latest book,

False Alarm,whichIrecommend to

anyone interested in this crucial issue.

The book is focused on tackling the

issue in asensible and measuredway. It

certainly does not encourage the

spendingofbillions on apumped hydro

scheme which may not make amaterial

difference to the outcome.

There are always challenges for

incominggovernments and there are

many waystoaddress them.

It willbeinteresting to see which

options the prime minister chooses.

Hurunui YouthCouncil for the younger

members of our districtonSaturday,

What agreat nightitwas. There was

good music,plenty of food, excellent

dancing, and fun was had by all.

The youth council has astrong history of

supporting and advocating for the youth

voiceinour district, despite this year being

disrupted by the Covid­19 lockdown.

The 2020 youthcouncil members should

feel proudoftheircommitment,courage

and willingnesstoorganise this event

when your lives are fullofpreparing and

planningfor examination timetables, and

whatever may lie ahead in 2021.

The organising team, led by Noah

Wilson, was wellsupported by Ward

Shearman, the Hurunui youth

development officer.The teamwork

ensuredthat the eventwent off without a

hitch, withplenty of goodfood and

companionship.

The recentemployment of Rebecca

Pugh —youth worker for the district—is

exciting.

We are fortunate to haveRebecca’s

talent and understanding of youth and

youthaffairs.

An outdoor power machine

to suit everyone’s needs

Brand Mowers and Chainsaws, North

Canterbury’s Husqvarna Crown dealer,

in Southbrook, Rangiora, has an

extensive range of tractor, ride-on, push

and auto mowers, along with chainsaws,

hedge trimmers, and weed eaters,

to meet the needs of homeowners,

landowners and commercial clients.

Brand is also the agent for Masport and

Karcher machinery, including industrial

water blasters.

The company, which is alocally owned

and operated, has alarge workshop for

repairing and servicing all makes and

models of outdoor equipment at its

Flaxton Road site.

Store manager Gavin McClung says

the Husqvarna products come with a

five year warranty on all petrol powered

machines (conditions apply).

“There is amower for everyone, and for

every use,” hesays.

Gavin says mower stock at Brand

Mowers and Chainsaws includes robotic

and battery mowers.

The growth in the demand for robotic

mowers is “phenomenal”.

It doesn’t matter if your lawn is small

or large, flat or sloping, arobotic lawn

mower can take care of them, cleanly

and safely, particularly in steep country.

There are seven mowers in the robotic

range which are designed to cater for

600 square metre sections through to

5000 sqm.

“We also have an all-wheel drive

one for steep country, through to a

large commercial model for those big

contracting jobs,” says Gavin.

Gavin says people should come into

Brand Mowers to discuss their needs, as

amower is probably one of the mostused

pieces of power equipment they

will buy.

Therefore they

should

Chilean plant towers

By SHELLEY TOPP

An ornamental shrub planted to help

hide afarm shed has grown far beyond

expectations on Gary Fleming’s

100­hectare farm in Ashley.

The Puya chilensis,aterrestrial

bromeliad originating from Chile, now

towers above the shed it was planted

to hide.

It has grown huge flower spikes with

an abundance of nectar.

‘‘It was supposed to be alot smaller,

but it was labelled incorrectly at the

nursery where Ibought it,’’ Gary said.

Although the 12­year­old plant took

eight or nine years to flower, it is now

proving avaluable food source for

birds and bees on the farm.

Gary plans to develop ashelter belt

with more of the tall­growing, longlived

plants.

‘‘I have asmaller species on the

farm which is more than 40 years old.’’

Last year, Garry won the Durable

Farm Forester of the Year award.

He has more than 650 species of

the way of the future.

‘‘There is abig market for naturally

durable timber in Japan, where there

is aresurgence in building with wood,

and architects are promoting the

product as acleaner alternative to

steel, concrete and brick.

‘‘They would buy all the durable

wood we could supply, if we were

growing it.’’

Although the trees on Gary’s farm

are grown for timber, they also

provide environmental and aesthetic

benefits, plus shelter for sheep and

deer.

Many of the trees, including pines,

also provide good fodder for the deer.

‘‘The deer like lots of different

things other than rye grass and white

clover.

‘‘They enjoy alot of trees and shrubs

and get alot of secondary compounds

from the cuttings of trees and shrubs

that we feed them.’’

One-size-fits-all model no longer applies

By ANTHONY BEVERLEY

New Zealand’s farmers are amongthe

most efficient and productive in the world

—and they need to be.

The world demandshigh­quality,

environmentallyfriendlyfood. At the

same time, regulatorycosts continue to

build, our weather is increasingly

challenging to bank on, and farm

profitabilityand balance sheets are under

pressure.

As aresult,farmers are increasingly

looking more closely at the economic

contributionofeach part of their farms.

Not all land is the same; some partsof

farms—iffarmers are honestabout it —

cost them money to farm.

It is the steep, rough hill country out the

back that farmers are taking asecond look

at. Notonly is this land unprofitable, but it

is oftendifficultand dangerous to farm. It

is typically erosion­prone, with topsoil

run­off undermining farmers’ broader

environmental efforts.

Therehas been plentyofcriticism in the

pressand within the farming community

concerning carbon forestry operations in

recent years,and in some quarters this is

quiterightly so.

Ruralcommunities are justifiedintheir

concern about wholesale blanket planting

Forestrycan create stable, long­term

andenable investmentinmore efficient,

Many NewZealand farmscould benefit

from taking an impartial lookatwhether

forestry cansupport their operations. Yes,

we need to ensure the right tree is planted

in the right place, but alot of steeper

farmlandisideally suited to rotation

forestry —offering farmers income from

both carbon farming and tree harvest.

There haveneverbeen more options

andopportunities for farmers in

consideringwhattodowith steeper land.

Forexample, with carbon and harvest

forestry, afarmercan begin to realisean

immediate and ongoing carbon revenue

stream, while also holdingoptions to profit

from harvesting at the endofits rotation.

Farmers are turning to carbon forestry

on parts of their farms to repaydebt, free

funds to invest in more productive land

andtosupport succession planning.

As risktofarming operationscontinues

to increaseasaresult of climatechange

andregulatory uncertainty, banksare also

increasingly interested in the potential for

sensible carbon and rotation forestry as a

sustainable risk managementtool.

Throughthe Drylandcarbon model, a

farmer can get extra income while

retaining outright land ownershipthrough

aland lease or joint forestry venture.

There areseveral waysthat these

agreementscan be structuredtomatch

individual farm circumstances and

theagreement,the farmercan receivea

passive income from previouslyunproductive

Waiataenjoys double success in

NewWorld Wine Awards Top50

WAIATA is abrand-newlabel that hastwo winesincluded

in the 2020 NewWorld Wine Awards Top50.

It’s something special forawinerytohavemore

than one Gold medal-winning wine in the New

World Wine Awards Top50. Even moresowhen

it’s abrand-newlabel. Both the Waiata Waipara

Sauvignon Blanc2020and the Waiata Waipara

Pinot Noir Rosé 2020 made the listthis year.

Produced by Tiki Wine and Vineyards, the twoGold

medal winesare brilliant expressions of the North

Canterburyregion. Tiki Winemaker Evan Ward is

understandably delightedthat the Waiata label has

been met with instant success.

‘‘We’realwaysaimingfor that sort of thing and

areverypleased when it happens,’’ he says. ‘‘It

wasone of those yearswhere the fruit justcame

together really nicely in the vineyard,whichmakes a

winemaker’s job alot easier.’’

Royceand Sue Mckean ownTiki Winesand Vineyards.

Ward has been involved in the wine industryfor

morethan 50 years, having startedduring school

holidays in his mid-teens.BorninNew Zealand, he

grew up in Sydney, wherehis father worked for

McWilliams Wines. Moving back to NewZealand

with his wifeafter graduating from university,

Ward began workingfulltimeinthe industryfor

McWilliams in Napier in 1974.

He later became Senior Winemaker forcompanies

including Cooksand Corbans,and eventually Chief

Winemaker MortonEstate, whereheworked for

over adecade. Despitehaving retired from there, the

phonewas still ringing and it wasaphonecallfrom

viticulturistDavid Jordan that began Wardslatest

successes withTiki Wines.

‘‘He asked would Iliketodosome winemaking?’’

Ward remembers.‘‘It wasthe startofvintage, and

Isaid ‘okay, when?’ and he said ‘now’. And so after

being aHawkesBay winemaker

formanydecades,Ihadtoturnmy

hand to Marlboroughand further

south.’’

He says working forTiki Wines

over the last10years has been

agreat experience,working for

agreat family.The companyis

owned by Royceand SueMckean,

who bought a325ha sheep farm in

Waipara in the early-2000s. It was

fully planted by the end of 2006,

and although Tiki Wines alsogrow

fruit in Marlborough, the vineyard

in Waiparaiswhere the Waiata

wines aremade.

Ward explainsthat the region has manybenefits

when it comes to producing award-winningwine.

‘‘It’s abit cooler thanMarlborough,’’ he says. ‘‘But it

still has agood dailytemperaturefluctuation, which

Sauvignon Blanc likes. It’s probably Marlborough-ish,

in that it getslovely warm temperatures, but is also

quitecool at night. That’sessential fordeveloping

the fruit flavoursinalot of the varieties that New

Zealand does best. Especially Sauvignon Blanc, but

also Pinot Noir.’’

While all winemakerstry to put apersonalstamp

on their wines, Ward says at Tiki Wines theyare

endeavouring to maximise the qualityofthe fruit.

He believesthat some newtechnologiesthat were

implemented in the Waiata vineyard lastseason

contributed to their successindoing that‘‘inno

small way’’.

Foranewlabel,having the Waiata Waipara

Sauvignon Blanc 2020 and the Waiata Waipara

Pinot Noir Rosé 2020 in the NewWorld Wine

Awards Top50isagreat successand helpsto

springboardthe newlabel. As aTop 50 winning

wine, both wines aremade availableatliquor-selling

‘‘As we have been aNew World supplierfor some

time, we were particularly pleased to have had this

Plans take shape for ride

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Planningfor HanmerSpring’s latesthighflying

touristattraction is progressing.

Requests for proposals from potential

suppliers for afly ride are sought, and

work has started to gatherinformationfor

aresource consent applicationtothe

Hurunui District Council.

Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools and

Spa generalmanager Graeme Abbot, who

backsthe fly ride to become alocalmustdo

attraction, says workisbeingdone to

get it running as soon as possible.

Another publicmeeting is planned to

keep people up to datewith what is

proposed for the ConicalHill­basedride.

‘‘There is plentyofwork going on,’’he

says of the projectthat will carry people

on an 850­metre gentle downhill ride

through ConicalHillforest, and provide a

view of the Hanmer Springs landscape.

It willtake nine minutes and will take

in the sights threetofive metresabove

the ground. Its top speedwill be afast

walking pace.

The projecthas been made possible

thankstoa$2.1 million cash injection—

$2m fromthe Government’s

infrastructure fund and $123,000from the

Provincial Growth Fund. It is aimedat

reducing the impact of the lack of

internationaltourists visiting the town.

The fly ride, which could be running by

springnext year,will createupto25jobs,

and give a$4m economic boost to the

regionover five years.

Mr Abbotsays the experience has been

designed to have minimalenvironmental

impact. It will will not fly over houses.

There are also opportunities for big

‘‘Wehadagoodrunafter lockdown and

we’vehadsome people coming in which

comeonboard overthe summer.’’

Mentoring not only benefits the young

people who need some extra support, as

mentors can make lifelong friends, Ellie

says.

A‘‘boys’ dayout’’ washeld recently,in

whichmentorsandtheir youngfriends got

together to do ‘‘boys’ stuff’’ on amentor’s

Do cows telllies? Maybe you have heard

this phrasemany times before, but what

does it really mean when talking about

cows?

Let’s think about fertility and mating,

which is about to start.

It is certainthat having

good six­week in­calf rates

(6 WIR)and low empty

rates (MT rate) are key

performance indicators

when we want to improve

our herd fertility and

overall profitability, while

helping to reduceour

farm’scarbon footprint.

Sadly,after inductions

were banned for many

farms,these key factors did

not improve andsome

farms evengot worse.

Fertilityisacomplex

matterthat involves paying

attention to BCS, heat

detection,genetics, AB

technique,bull management,

transition period, as well as cow

healthand nutrition. Regardless of what

your farming system is (1 to 5), the cow still

needs to haveall her nutrient

requirements met to give good results.

If yourcows are showing that they

cannot have afertile egg after the first

cycle, thatthey are having trouble cleaning

their afterbirths, suffering from metritis,

or if they just simplydonot showsigns of

heat, then what they are really saying is

that there is something missingtomeet the

requirements.

Cowsdon’t tell lies

From my experience, alack of total



Matt Cassineri

energy,and an unbalanced diet normally

shows an overload of dietary protein, and

continuallyfeedingmineralsthat are not

being totally absorbedbythe cow, are

generally the “nutritional’’ culprits.

Not enough seleniumand copper

provided in the right form

on the mineral side is a

biggiewhen we lookto

improve fertility rates.

Alltech’s On­farm

Advantage programme

provides atool that

evaluates all the factors

affecting fertility and

identifies the best solution

to improve the overall

performance and, of

course, the bottom line for

your business.

We offer onecomplete

look at the cowsand data,

to helpidentify why the

cowsare not performing.

Sel­Plex is Alltech’s

proprietary organic form of

selenium yeast manufactured to mimic

The vision of the Dairy Environment

kaitiakitanga/stewardship for the future

Up country ... Rob Stokes, left, chats to his Lees Valley farm manager Tim Sowman.

Regulations called unworkable

By DAVID HILL

Proposed newregulations arecreatinga

headache forfarmerstrying to do the

right thing by the environment,the

FederatedFarmers’ high country

chairman says.

Rob Stokes would likecentral

government and theDepartmentof

Conservation(DOC)towork alongside

farmers insteadofimposing

‘‘unworkable’’ regulations.

Pastoralleasesubmissionsweredue by

lateNovember,while proposed

regulationsaround freshwater and

biodiversity wouldtakeaway ‘‘our

opportunity to develop’’.

‘‘The wholefreshwater policy is

unworkable. If theyhad aplan they

wouldn’tbegoing back all the time to rejig

it,’’ Mr Stokes says.

Under theproposed low­slopemaps

prepared for the new stock exclusion

rules,80percentofhis 2500 hectareLees

Valley property,nearOxford,would be

considered to be ‘‘under the low slope,

which isn’t quite correct’’.

‘‘Weare lookingatprobably 40% (low

slope). The rest is highcountryand that’s

the way we’ve farmed it —not too

intensive.’’

The recent Ohau fireswereanexample

of where farmersfelt their concerns,

around‘‘fuel loading’’ werebeing

ignored.

But Mr Stokes was hopeful DOC,Fire

and Emergency New Zealand,Land

Information New Zealandand Federated

Farmers would soonbemeeting‘‘inthe

sameroom so we canget aplantogether’’.

‘‘Wewantsomethinginplace in the

next couple of weeks andIthink DOC do

as well. It’snot great publicityfor them.’’

Mr Stokes and hiswife, Julie,employ

TimSowman to runtheirLeesValley

property. Theyalso have properties at

Oxford and Amberley.

Thereare two full­time staff at Lees

Valley and‘‘webounce around in

between and muck in withthe baling and

tractorwork’’,hesays.

‘‘It’s abreeding unit, with prettymuch

all young stock finished—40% are

finishedatLees Valley andthe rest are

sent to ourblocks at Oxfordand

Amberley.’’

The Stokesfamily’sRichonPartnership

farms8000 stock units of Perendalesheep

and Hereford cattle, with low stocking

ratesatLeesValley.‘‘We’vefarmed like

that for 100 years.

‘‘We arethird generation. My

grandfather bought it and my fatherwas

therefor 50 years,and we took it over in

1995 andfarmed it in partnershipwith my

parents until they retiredinto Oxford

aboutfive or six years ago.’’

ThePerendaleshave been lambingat

140% andithas beenamixed springso

far, he says.

‘‘Theweatherhas beenpretty good on

thewhole, butit’s been afunnyold spring

andit’sstarting to getabit dry. It’sabit

like theNorthCanterbury of old,with the

northwesterlies.

‘‘We just need abit more moisture and

plenty of sun.’’

Dusty work ... Robbie and Amy Stokes in action in their Ford Fiesta AP4.

Waikuku pair in rally win

Waikukubrother andsister

Robbie andAmy Stokeswon

their firstrallyoverthe weekend

at the LoneStar Rallyof

Canterbury.

The paircamehomefirst by

just8.7 seconds to beat Josh

Marston and Andrew Graves

after 119km of racing.

It was onlythe thirdrally in

which Robbie hadcompeted in

his four­wheel­drive

turbocharged FordFiesta AP4.

For thepast three seasons the

pairhad competedinatwowheel­drive

FordFiesta R2.

‘‘Weare rapt with howthe car

performs.

‘‘Our engineer, IanMason (of

Nelson) has built an incredible

car fromscratch and it is just

awesometodrive,’’Robbie says.

‘‘Inthree events we havegone

fromaDNF (didnot finish)to

secondoverall,and nowawin.’’

There was aclosebattle

betweenthe top two drivers on

the seven stages,with thelead

swapping fourtimes.

However, Robbieclaimed five

of the seven stage wins.

Hot anddusty conditions

added afew extrachallenges,

especially on thestages in the

Ashley Forest. Thelack of wind

caused the dusttohang in the

trees.

‘‘Normally,the Rally of

Canterbury is held on Queen’s

Birthday Weekend, so we are

dealing withsnowand icerather

thanheatand dust,’’Amy says.

‘‘There were somesections

coming down Mt Grey Road

where Iwas hopingRobbie’s

eyesightwas betterthan mine,

becauseIcouldn’t see anything

through thedust.’’

Robbie hadtomanagesome

overheating issues throughout

the day.

‘‘Itwas agood learning

experience forusbecausethe

car wasn’t runningperfectly.

The engine gothotterthan we

would haveliked.

‘‘Onmost stages we justhad to

manage thatand make surewe

got to thefinish linewithout

doing anydamage,’’ Robbiesays.

‘‘Wewerealso runningsecond

on theroad,which we hadn’t

experienced before.Itmeant

thattherewas stillalot of loose

gravel, as only Joshhad been

throughbeforeus. Lastyear we

wereseeded 32 and this year we

werecar three, so it was alittle

bit different.’’

The pair, alongwith Marston,

cameacross some cattleonStage

to MotunauBeach.

‘‘Just after one of thespectator

points we came throughacattle

stoptofind10­pluscows and

calves on the road. We hadto

them, but they dispersedoff the

roadreasonably quickly,’’ Amy

says.

Thiswas not the first time the

What Would You Change? Shape

Waimakariri’s Climate Change Policy

Residents concerned about climate change are

being asked to help shape the Council’s dra

Climate Change Policy.

The Council’s 2019 Community Survey showed

growing concern about the issue with over 70

percent of respondents either concerned or very

concerned about climate change. Residents

also asked the Council to show leadership by

prioritising climate change in the 2019 Customer

Satisfaction Survey.

“The Council acknowledges concerted action is

required by all levels of government to address

climate change for current and future generations,”

said Councillor Niki Mealings who holds the

portfolio for climate change.

“We want to work with the community to become

more sustainable, improve the environment, and

mitigate our impact onthe world’s climate.”

She says the aim of the dra policy is to ensure

the Council is prepared to lead aresponse to

climate change that is appropriate, timely, costeffective

and equitable,

“It’s important we balance these objectives and

develop an appropriate response with real and

measurable outcomes.”

Cr Mealings says while this policy is largely a

‘statement of intent’, it will pave the way for a

comprehensive Climate Change Response Strategy

to be developed in the coming months.

If adopted, the policy commits the Council to

considering climate change in all Council decisionmaking

and work programmes, and regularly

measuring corporate emissions.

The dra policy is available forfeedbackonthe

Council’sLet’s Talk website untilFriday 13November.

Bin Spot Checks Prove to be Dirty Work

Ateam of four are spot checking recycling bins

throughout the District to help people better

understand what items can be put out for

recycling.

Twoweeks in, and it’s been adirty job.

Food, dirty nappies, smashed window glass, tree

branches, Tetra Pak cartons, coffee cups, lids,

clothing and other things that should be going

in the rubbish, have been found in hundreds of

recycling bins.

Since checks have begun roughly one in four

recycling bins contained rubbish. This could have

contaminated the whole load which would then

have had to go to landfill.

“The visual checks are the best way for ustosee

what the recycling looks like, and check whether

people are getting our messaging about what we

can and can’t take”, says Council’s Solid Waste

Asset Manager Kitty Waghorn.

Any bin heavily contaminated with rubbish will be

le uncollected and atag will let residents know

what the offending items are so that it can be

sorted for the next collection.

Kitty said for those who haven’t got it quite right,

and where there is only alittle contamination, the

bin will be collected and an educational flyer will be

le in the letterbox letting people know what items

need to go in the rubbish.

“We’ll be checking bins again inthe coming weeks

to check that the message is getting through. It’s so

important to get our recycling sorted so that wecan

keep it from being dumped tolandfill,” she said.

What to recycle:

• Clean cardboard

• Aluminium and tin cans (no unattached

lids)

• Metal tins

• Glass jars and bottles (no lids) –nobigger

than 3litre size

• Plastic bottles and containers from the

kitchen or laundry, type 1, 2or5

• Aerosol cans

• Paper nosmaller than an envelope

Calling all cupcake specialists

By SHELLEY TOPP

An urgent plea has gone out to bakers by the

Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals

(SPCA) to support its Cup Cake Day fundraiser on

Monday, November 2.

Every year the SPCA provides care and shelter

for more than 40,000 abused and neglected

animals.

Since 2009, bakers from all around New Zealand

have helped the SPCA raise more than $3 million

to continue helping animals in need. However,

this year people have been slow to register for the

event.

‘‘Please join us again to make ahuge difference

to the lives of injured, abused, sick and lost

Gala to

focus on

children

Ashgrove School’s community gala is

all about the children.

The school’s parent teacher

association (PTA) will host it on

Friday, November 6, from 3.30pm, with

games and activities centred around

the children, teacher Megan Cherry

says.

‘‘The PTA envisions acommunity

feel where people come and have a

twilight picnic —bring fish and chips.

There will be some stalls and games

and prizes, so it’s all about the

children.

‘‘In the past we’ve brought in other

stall­holders and it hasn’t been focused

around the children the same, and alot

of the stalls just weren’t affordable for

families.’’

There will be abarbecue, music and

food on sale, and some of the children

will be bringing items from home to

sell.

The gala is also an opportunity to

meet the school’s new principal, Leon

Van’t Veen­Gibbon, or ‘‘Mr V’’.

‘‘It’s an opportunity to come together

as acommunity and celebrate the

special place that Ashgrove is,’’ he

says.

animals across New Zealand,’’ SPCA chief

executive Andrea Midgen says.

‘‘Kitten season is in full swing and the newborn

kittens arriving in the SPCA’s care are only days

old, even smaller than acupcake, but we are low

on sign­ups and we urgently need more bakers to

raise vital funds to help these kittens,’’ she says.

This year’s target is $150,000, with more than

$16,000 raised so far. Bakers interested in taking

part in the fundraiser should register for the event

on the SPCA website.

‘‘Taking part is easy,’’ Andrea says. ‘‘Just bake

delicious cupcakes, sell them to your family and

friends, and raise money to help care for animals.

‘‘It has been adifficult year, so let’s end it with

some ‘pawsitivity’ and delicious treats.’’

ADelayed Life, by Dita Kraus

From her time in the children’s block

of Auschwitz to her liberation from

the camps and on into her adulthood,

Dita’s powerful memoir sheds light

on an incredible life —one that is

delayed no longer.

The Salt Path, by Raynor Winn

Just days after Raynor learns that

Moth, her husband of 32 years, is

terminally ill, the couple lose their

home and their livelihood. With

nothing left and little time, they make the brave and

impulsive decision to walk the

1013km of the sea­swept South West

Coast Path, from Somerset to Dorset

via Devon and Cornwall.

Under the Covers, by Jenny Lynch

Former editor Jenny Lynch takes the

wraps off the unreported side of life

in print, explodes myths, unearths

secrets and shows that even on

seemingly

conservative

publications

such as the New

Zealand Woman's Weekly,things were

seldom exactly as they seemed.

These titles are available in both

Waimakariri and Hurunui libraries.
