Anger

over

quarry

By ROBYN BRISTOW

AWaikari farmer, yarn producer,and

fashion designer is prepared to takethe

approval of aquarry extension above her

property to the High Court over her concernsabout

its environmental impact.

Beverley Forrester told the Hurunui

District Council last week that the craggy

limestoneskyline near her homewould

be changed irrevocably because of the

extension of the quarry, whichwas

creeping ever closertoher property.It

was also causing adust nuisanceas

traffic travelled to and from the quarry,

and from the activitieswithin it. The

extension of the farm­based quarrywas

approved by the council after anonnotified

application.

‘‘It is getting progressively closer to my

houseand at timesthe dust is

incredible,’’she said. ‘‘I don’t dispute

what farmers candowith theirland, but

it is the compliance with the consent for

the quarry that Ihave an issuewith.’’

Mrs Forrester says several years of

frustration aboutthe quarry’s operation,

and the consentfor its extension and its

hours, has prompted her to take action.

‘‘To me it is not an extension, it is a

separate operation. Iamprepared to

take it to the High Court,’’she said.

Mrs Forrester produces dye­free yarns

from her BlackHills farm and has

restoredheritage cottages on the land—

part of atourism operation.

She is critical of the non­notified

application, and the failure of the

council to monitorthe activitiesofthe

land­use consent at the quarry.She had

been in regulartouchwith the council

aboutthe issues,and hadmonitored

vehicle movementsand operating hours.

It’sthe last call for Mavis

By ROBYN BRISTOW

It is the end of an era for MavisBarton

today as the doors of the Amberley Hotel

temporarily close.

Mavis and herhusband Neville, or

Chummy as he is known,have sold the

pub they have owned for 30 years.

Anew owner is taking over and it is

believed the doorswill stay shut for

several months.

Mavis says, barring one day, the pub

has never been closed in the three

decades they andtheirfamilyhave run

and ownedit.

‘‘I am going to miss the company.

Thereare alwayspeople poppingin, and

Iamsoused to looking out the windows

and watchingeverything happening

around the town,’’ she says.

In 1990 they boughtinto apartnership

for the pub, and tookover full ownership

afew yearslater.

Aside fromeightyears living in ahouse

in Amberley, the pubonthe cornerof

Markham Street and Carters Road has

been home to Mavis.

Chummy, who suffered astroke12

months ago, is now in arest­home, but

once Mavis finds somewheretolive, she

hopestobring him home.

She saysshe will cherish the memories

of the characters visitingthe pub, and the

many interesting people who stayed in

the hotel’sdozenrooms.

Garden club marks 70 years

By SHELLEY TOPP

Cust/West Eyreton Garden

Club membersmarked their

70th anniversary by planting a

tree in the Jack Graham

Reserve, at the Cust

Community Centre grounds.

ACornus ‘‘EddiesWhite

Wonder’’ flowering dogwood

tree, donated by Querky Style

and Roses at Cust, was

plantedbytwo long­standing

committee members, Marilyn

Rossiter and Val O’Loughlin,

last Saturday afternoon.

The ceremony was followed

by an afternoon tea at

Krakatoa,the Summerhill

home and garden owned by

BarryFrost, another longstanding

member of the club.

The garden at Krakatoa was

designed by Alfred Buxton,

New Zealand’sleading

garden designer during the

earlydecades of the 20th

century.

The club’s anniversary

celebrations wereinitially

planned for May this year,but

were delayed by the Covid­19

lockdown and social

distancing restrictions.

The club’s firstmeeting was

held on May 3, 1950, withthe

aim of developing interest in

gardens, stagingflower and

vegetable shows, buying

plantsfor members, helping

children to become interested

in gardening, and

encouraging visitstoprivate

gardens.

Mavis steps away from bar

From Page 1

She loves playingpool, having never

played until the coupleboughtthe hotel.

She saysthere has never been any

trouble at the pub, but it wasmuchharder

to do business once new liquor licensing

laws were broughtin.

Mavisrecalls the dayswhen publicans

enjoyed abeer behind the bar with

patrons. Now,that has becomeano­no.

‘‘Youare not supposedtohave adrink

when you are working,’’ she says.

Kojakplaying the piano, and Dennis,

also known as Dingo, are just two of the

patrons thatMavis willmiss. She says

many regulars stayedinthe pub.

over, couplesusedtofrequentthe hotel,

while the nearby Railway Hotelwas for

workingmen. The hotels usedtowork in

together. One had aband one week, and

theotherthe next.

Theworldofapublicanisvastly

important component of the business,

andprices of alcohol had goneup

considerably, Mavis says.

Thedays of filling half­gallon jars with

beer to take homewere largely gone, and

gathered at the reserve for the

tree­planting ceremonythat

gardeninghad become

popular again in the Covid­19

era,with the director general

of health, Dr Ashley

exercise in their gardens

during lockdown.

‘‘Itisuptothe club to make

the most of that resurgence,’’

she said. ‘‘We’re always

Quarry concerns aired

From Page 1

She had become increasingly frustrated

over what she perceived as alack of

acknowledgement over several yearsofher

concernsbystaff, and alack of action.

The granting of the extensionwas the last

straw, and she contacted Federated

Farmers. Lawyersare now involved.

The Widest

Music Variety

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Ahole­in­one is no mean feat

for any golfer.

But Cheviot’s Di Yates has

made amockery of the odds,

which for an average golfer

are calculated at about 12,500

to 1, according to Google.

The 20­handicapper scored

two holes­in­one, at the same

par­three hole, with the same

club, inside three weeks.

This takes her hole­in­one

tally to three at the Cheviot

Golf Club.

Di on both occasions used a

five wood on the 111­metre

ninth hole, sponsored by

Charles Wiffen.

For anyone accomplishing

ahole­in­one, at the 9th, a

carton of Charles Wiffen wine

is on offer.

Her two holes­in­one

means she has managed to

well and truly stock up on the

sponsor’s product just in time

for Christmas.

Di’s first effort was

followed up just two days

later, on October 20, on her

way to winning the ladies’

senior finals.

accomplishments are well

deserved.

Local business confidence rebounds

By DAVID HILL

NorthCanterbury businesses are feeling

more positive about the future despite

the disruptions fromCovid­19,the latest

North Canterbury Business Opinion

Survey reveals.

The survey, conducted by Enterprise

North Canterbury (ENC) every six

months, showsthatthelocal business

community is more confident about the

business outlook for New Zealand than it

has been at any othertime in the past

three years.

The net ­10% business confidence level

reported in the October survey, while

still slightly pessimistic,isamarked

increaseonthenet ­59% reported in

May,and is thehighest levelofoverall

business confidencereportedinthe

regionsince October 2017.

Thelatest figure alsocompares

favourablyagainst theconfidencelevel

of businesses across NewZealand, which

sitsat anet ­39%.

North Canterbury has done

better than was predicted since

lockdown.❜

—Miles Dalton

Thelast local survey was conducted

shortly after the alert level 4lockdown,

when business confidence was

bottoming out acrosstheboard.

Morethanathirdofsurveyed

businesses now report growth as aresult

of Covid­19, whileatleast 118 businesses

have launched in NorthCanterbury

sincelockdown.

North Canterbury has done better

than was predicted sincelockdown,with

fewer closures, fewerredundanciesand

morenewbusinessesstarting than

expected,”ENC business support

manager MilesDalton says.

“Unemployment figures across the

regionare also currently sitting lower

than expected, and our survey says that

staffing levels shouldincreaseinmany

businessesoverthe nextsix months.

‘‘While local business is still fragile

and we wouldn’t want to see another

lockdown,North Canterbury businesses

areoptimistic overall abouttheir own

situations.”

About one­third (32%)ofsurveyed

businessesexpect the local business

situation to improve in the next six

months, Mr Dalton says.

“Things are looking good for the year

ahead, but the risk of another Covid­19

outbreak meansthatwecan’t sit too

comfortably.

“We haveseenbusiness owners really

working hard to make sure the

fundamentals oftheir businesses are

solid, and getting helpto makesure they

Help needed for Toot for Tucker

By DAVID HILL

Volunteersare sought for this

year’sToot for Tucker appeal.

The annualpre­Christmas

food drivewill returnon

Tuesday, December 1.

Covid­19 has had an impact,

organiserBev Wright says.

‘‘We are asking people to

provide their own bagsthis

year because the cost of this

project has gone up exponentially,

and with Covid­19

we didn’t knowifwewere

going to be able to do it again.

‘‘The bags are really

popular and we may decide to

go backtothem in future, but

for now we are going ask

peopletoput the foodout in a

bag.

‘‘It can be aplastic bag,

paper bag or acloth bag.’’

The impactofCovid­19

means families who have

never visited afood bank

beforeare finding themselves

with reduced hours and

reduced incomes.

‘‘There’sstill alot of stigma

aroundpeople going to afood

bank whenthey need help

and there shouldn’t be,

because that’s what it’s there

for,’’Bev says.

If anyone is wondering what

to include in theirfood bags,

Bev says something for

Christmas dinner, suchas

tinnedfruit or Christmas

mince pies, would be agreat

addition.

‘‘Anything that’salittle bit

Christmasy will be quite nice

because therewill be families

who will be havingalean time

this Christmas.’’

Amberleyisbeing added for

the first time this year, with

all the food going to support

local Amberley food banks.

Once again therewill be

collections in Rangiora,

Woodend and Pegasus for the

RangioraSalvation Army; in

Oxford and Cust for the

Oxford Community Trust’s

foodbank; and in Kaiapoi for

CommunityWellbeing North

Canterbury’s food pantry at

Kaiapoi Community Support.

‘‘The important thing is all

the food stays in the local

area,’’ Bev says.

‘‘Itdoesn’t go into

Christchurch or someother

black hole,’’ Bev says.

Smaller communities such

as Loburn, Cust, Mandeville

and Waikuku Beach can also

do their bit, withlocalschools

and service centresbeing

MAYOR CRAIG MACKLE

District in strong position

Irecentlyattendedaregional

biannual event and an opportunity to

meet with chief executivesand mayors

from all over the South Island.

There were several challengesthat

kept cropping up, including the

proposed water reforms,and

infrastructure replacement and

maintenance.

Icouldn’t help but think that we are in

areally good position right now.Our

infrastructure is in good nick thanks to

Governmentfundingfor the rebuild and

the greatjob the council’s

infrastructure rebuildteam has done

managing the project. We are asmall

council and to deliver a$38.6 million

project under budget (andifnot for

Covid­19, on time)ispretty impressive.

While the last few yearshave been a

long, hardslog for everyone, let us take

alook at whatishappeningaround the

district right now: The reconstructionof

the Mayfair Theatre, the development of

WakatuQuay, construction of the

aquatic centre, the ScoutHall

refurbishment and the Mayoral Task

Force for Jobs funding. These are huge

thingsfor asmall community.

Ivisited the high school recently to

check out the ScienceRoad Show. The

students were really enjoyingthe

interactive learning experience, being

educatedwhile havingfun.

Principal JohnTait gave me atour of

the school grounds, including the

buildings thathave been given an

overhaulwith acolourscheme selected

by the students. The place is looking

good and it is nicetosee our local youth

taking pride in theirschool.

Speakingofschoollife, accordingto

the young audience at the WhatNow TV

show event recently, Iwas personally

responsible for sendingkids to school.

For my sins, Iwas gunked with green

slime (it’s quite surprising just how

much gunk that bucket held). Iwould

like to congratulate the younggirl who

threw the winning shot. She has agood

aim!

Somegood newsfor our tourism

sector:Kaikoura has topped the country

for the biggest increase in domestic

tourism over the school holidays

comparedwith 2019. Not only that, but

we are ranked No. 122 in Lonely Planet’s

new UltimateTravel List —the third

locationinNew Zealand behind

Fiordland and MountCook.

If you are feelingstressedor

take astep back,take adeep breath and

realise how lucky we are to be living

here right now.

Taggart applies for

quarry consents

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Taggart Earthmoving has applied for

resource consent for aquarry at the

Rangiora Racecourse.

Both the Canterbury Regional

Council (ECan) and Waimakariri

District Council have received the

application for consents to establish,

maintain and operate an aggregate

quarry at 309 West Belt, Rangiora.

People wanting to make a

submission on the proposal must have

them into ECan by 5pm on Friday,

November 27.

The proposed quarry will involve

topsoil stripping, aggregate extraction

to adepth of no more than five metres

below ground level, and rehabilitation

of the site by backfilling.

Excavation and deposition of

material will maintain at least one

metre separation to groundwater at all

times.

No crushing, screening or washing

of aggregates is proposed at the site.

The aggregate material will be

transported off site for processing.

According to the application, the

quarrying will be undertaken in at

least eight stages of no more than two

hectares each, over atotal area of 14.5

hectares.

Freedom camping revisited

Freedom camping in Hanmer Springs

is being revisited by the Hurunui

District Council.

In September, the council agreed to

consider shifting the camping areas in

Hanmer Springs to the Hanmer Sports

Reserve during its Long Term Plan

deliberations.

This month it voted to revoke the

motion. Instead, council officers have

been asked to consult with the

community in the Hanmer Springs

basin to identify potential freedom

camping sites.

Officers will report back to the

council with aproposed amendment to

the Freedom Camping Bylaw by March

2021.

Unbudgeted expenditure will be

used to hasten the work.

Councillors also supported areview

of the bylaw being brought forward to

2022, instead of 2023.

Mayor Marie Black said in areport

that the council resolution in

September had been drafted without

consultation with the community,

which was not desirable.

The new resolution will give the

community asay on potential sites in an

open and transparent process, she said.

‘‘It is important that we continue to

work with the community and

acknowledge we have not yet

determined the most desired outcomes

in this regard.’’

Boardbacksbin idea

By DAVID HILL

Two Woodend School pupils are

encouraging Pegasus dog walkers to pick

up after their pooches.

Year 7pupils Ashley Kerr and Poppy

Archer became concerned about the

amount of dog poo on their local streets

while out walking during the Covid­19

lockdown and decided to take action.

The pair approached Waimakariri

Mayor Dan Gordon to outline their

concerns and suggested adog poo bin

equipped with bags be provided to

encourage people to clean up after their

dogs.

The mayor responded with aface­toface

meeting to talk more about their idea.

“Ashley and Poppy had agreat attitude

towards solving the problem and myself,

Woodend­Sefton Community Board chair

Shona Powell and greenspace manager

Grant MacLeod are extremely proud of

them for coming up with this solution for

their community,” Mr Gordon says.

Once the details were fleshed out, a

report was put to the Woodend­Sefton

Community Board, which decided to back

the initiative.

Ms Powell says the girls put alot of

thought into the location of the bin, which

is situated beside the walking path off Te

Kohanga Drive.

The students have gone astep further

than just getting the bin installed, and

have volunteered to keep an eye on it, and

replenish supplies of poop bags when

needed.

INTRODUCING OUR NEW EXECUTIVE CHEF

INTRODUCING OUR NEW EXECUTIVE CHEF

HAYDEN CROSS

The Brook is excited to introduce its new chef, Hayden Cross.

Hayden brings a passion for fresh food, exciting flavours, and an array of new dishes to the menu.

He has a home-made philosophy, enjoys utilising seasonal, local produce, and uses simple

cooking methods, to preserve the natural flavours and nutrients.

Hayden’s experience and his desire to present really good food, ensures a great dining experience

for restaurant customers. There is no processed food, and anything bought in is limited to avoid

boxes and packaging in the kitchen.

The menu caters for all dietary requirements, and offers fresh and interesting daily specials for

lunch and dinner.

‘‘It is not fine dining, but it is really good food, and something a wee bit different,” says Hayden.

He sees himself as one of an experienced team providing a memorable dining experience for

guests through good food and service.

There is a new festive roast on the menu to enjoy, offering champagne ham, roast lamb or roast

pork. Only $12 for Super Gold card holders or $22 on the main dinner menu.

Hayden is happy to cater for five enjoying a birthday celebration, to up to 100 having a function

or office party. There will be Christmas specials with The Brook offering ideal spaces for staff

Christmas functions.

Food has been a passion for Hayden since aged 14. He worked his way up to head chef at the

age of 18, after beginning ‘‘in the sink’’ at Cobb and Co. when just 14. He has run restaurants at

Riccarton House, Mu Premium Steak House and Bar, and Chateau on the Park among others.

But a desire to leave the Christchurch Central Business area, has been North Canterbury’s gain.

While he commutes each day from Rolleston, he and his partner are keen to buy a rural property in

the Waimakariri district.

receive, therehas been an increase in the number

of students keeping physically activeintosecondary

school and moregetting involved in club sports across

the region. Most importantly manychildren who are

not sports-inclined areencouraged to participate in a

positiveenvironmentwithout competitivepressures,

and as aresult they become moreconfidentand thus

morelikely to remain activethroughout their lives.

Funds received to

replace vital craft

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Coastguard North Canterbury has

received a$9730 grantfromtheNew

ZealandCommunity Trust foran

It has the firstspecialist trained

swift­water rescue crewinNew

Zealand. It is ahighly mobile, regional

search andrescuecrew,attending

callouts fromthe RakaiaRivertothe

Hurunui Riverand inlandtothe

Southern Alps.

Swift­waterrescues require

specialistskills, training and

equipment.

TheIRBsthey use for rescues are

similarto those usedbySurf

LifesavingNew Zealand,and are built

for tough conditionsand weather

extremes. Theyare constantly bashed

by rocks and floating debris.

It willreplaceonethat is more than

10 yearsold and startingtoshowsigns

of wear.Toensure compliance and

safety, they should be replaced every

few years.

The North CanterburyCoastguard is

avoluntary organisation,relianton

public generosity to generateits

income. It has already invested

fundraising income to train

volunteers in swift­waterrescue and

to provide the specialistequipment

needed, but theold IRBhad become

unsafe.

Communications manager Julia

James saysthe localcoastguard has

the country’s first fullytrained,

specialist swift­waterrescuecrew.

‘‘Having the right rescue equipment

is vital for successful swift­water

rescues and theunit’sIRB is keyto

enabling themto accessareas that a

—JuliaJames

‘‘Withthis addedlayerofexpertise,

the policeand theNew Zealand

servicein response to distress calls in

the area,’’ she says.

Lastyear,the grouprescued five

people fromashingle bankafter their

vehicle got stuck while crossing the

Waimakariri River.

‘‘Afterdays of stormyweatherand

heavy raininthe mountains, there was

avery highchance of the area

flooding.

‘‘Duetoaccessibilityissues,the

teamhad to partly carrytheir IRBto

reach asafe launchingarea, skilfully

manoeuvring it throughthe racing

water while fighting the strong

current.

‘‘Giventhe dangerous conditions,

the decision wasmade to ferrythe

people across the river,two by two,

back to safety,’’ Julia says.

‘‘Thelast person was safely

returnedtoshore at 11pm,just as the

storm broke, with wind gusts

exceeding 30 knots.

‘‘Thefull forceofthe flood

increased theriver flowfrom100

cubic metresto331 cubicmetres per

second.

‘‘If the people had still beenonthe

island, theywould have been swept

away by theraging floodwater.’’

Doctor writes comic book

By SHELLEY TOPP

Oxford general practitioner Dr Richard

Clinghan will hold afamily evening at

the Kaiapoi Library to talk about his

new book, Jenny &The Eddies.

Dr Clinghan, originally from

Northern Ireland, works at the Oxford

Community Health Centre.

He was inspired to write Jenny &The

Eddies,acomic book about viruses and

vaccines, after last year’s measles

epidemic in New Zealand.

He also did the drawings for the book,

which aims to promote vaccine safety

by addressing conspiracy theories in a

non­confrontational and engaging way,

and provide new ways to talk about

viruses and vaccines.

In the book, viruses are represented

by forest monsters, who are silent, stalk

their victims, attack quickly and cause

indiscriminate suffering.

The vaccine is represented by Eddie,

adog­like creature who is always

vigilant, brave and loyal.

Dr Clinghan’s talk will be on

Thursday, November 12, from 5.30pm to

6.30pm, with pizza served after his talk.

Books can be bought on the night for

$25, cash only.

People planning to attend must

register at the Kaiapoi, Rangiora or

Oxford libraries.

Check your water

As usual over the Festive Season, we’ll have a skeleton

to check your water situation. Look out for leaking pipes, or

suspicious wet patches. Check your water tanks are in good

condition, and your water troughs' ball cocks are operating

properly. If you see any issues please ring us – sooner

rather than later would be great! Thanks.

The North Canterbury spring weather behaved rather well as both

visitors and locals flocked in healthy numbers last week to the

Christmas Country Fete at Amberley House, the Hanmer Springs

Fete, the Hurunui Garden Festival, and the Amberley A&P Show.

Fabulous fetes, glorious gardens, and asplendid Show. We know

we’re in the thick of spring fever when these events have been

ticked off on the local calendar. Locals supporting locals, and

locals spreading their talent -it’s what we embrace and celebrate.

As summer encroaches, let’s keep supporting local events. Event

organisers, please remember to get HDC applications in early to

avoid any unnecessary disappointment as we are still very aware

of the evolving Covid-19 situations that may impact on a

successful event. As acouncil we are here tohelp assist and

support. Keep up the focus on supporting local.

Bird numbers bounce back

By SHELLEY TOPP

Bird numbers have soared at

Silverstream Reserve, in

Clarkville, after apredator

control programme was

initiated by Joan Whillans.

The programme involves

volunteers who havebeen

trapping predators since

August last year.

It began with abird count in

the reserve during July last

year.

Ayear later another bird

count—carriedout over the

same length of timeatthe

same timeofthe day by the

same person —revealed

‘‘results far exceeding our

expectations’’, Joan says.

She began the programme

because of the ‘‘really

successful and valuable’’

plantingofindigenousplants

at the reserve.

‘‘I thoughtthatthe nextstep

had to be predator control to

allowthe birdstoreturnand

to thriveinthis area.’’

She saidthe volunteers who

helped had been unfailingly

enthusiastic. ‘‘Their hard

work has resulted in the very

satisfyingincrease in the bird

population.

‘‘TheSilverstream Reserve

team of neighbours,

volunteers and the

Waimakariri District Council

staffwork together to support

and achieve the commongoal

of enhancing the reserve’s

biodiversity through the

operational programme of

native plantings, protection of

remnant native plant species

plus plant and animal pest

control.’’

In the12months, 151

possums, 24 hedgehogs, four

stoats, nine cats, three

weasels, 81 rats and 89 mice

were trapped in the reserve,

whileonnearby properties,

23 possums, fiverats and 33

hedgehogswere trapped.

‘‘Ourgreatestsuccesses

have been sightings in the

reserve of atui, akereru, a

korimako/bellbird and alittle

owl. In 2019 we saw one

riroriro/grey warbler. Twelve

months later,there were

seven.

‘‘Piwakawaka(fantail)

results were even more

satisfying. One was recorded

in 2019 and 10 in 2020.’’

Two pairs of kotare/

kingfishersnestedinthe

reserve last spring, with at

leastfive fledglings seen in

thereserve.

‘‘This is morethan I

expected, and shows how

quickly birdscan recover

from predators,’’Joan says.

‘‘Webegan trapping before

the nesting season last spring

so havehad instant success.’’

Trapsare movedevery

sevenweeks in the westend

of the reserve, and the

trappers check them every

day,making sure thereis

fresh baitand that the traps

haven’t been sprung.

Covid shows strength

of community’sheart

By DAVID HILL

Covid­19 hasstrengthenedour sense of

community, WaimakaririDistrict Council

community team manager Tessa Sturley

says.

Presenting her team’s annualreport,she

says community organisations haveproven

to be agile in uncertain times.

‘‘It was interesting putting the report

together. It was amazingthat there was

very little frombusiness as usual that

wasn’t deliveredinspite of Covid­19.

‘‘Theability of the community, our

partners and our team to be agile and

adaptableover lockdown meant the

community supports were largely

maintained.

‘‘If anything, the Covid­19 experience

has strengthened our senseofcommunity.

We are seeing collaborations we haven’t

seen before and sectors where

collaboration had not been happening

before arereallystarting to reachout and

work together.

“Of course, additional resourcing from

central governmentand philanthropic

funders may be needed to ensure these

come into fruition.’’

Proactiveplanning by community

organisationsand the collaborationmeant

potential gaps could be anticipatedand

‘‘we couldstartearly in back­filling to

address those’’, she says.

‘‘It’s an easy place to facilitate

collaboration and thatmeans that there’s

lots of good stuff to connect and support

community groups.

‘‘There’s alwaysmore to be done, but if

we can supportthese connections then we

are in agood position to effectively

respond to community need.’’

Food security is an example where

Waimakariri agencies havesteppedup

their efforts to support localfamilies and

have reached out to support the Hurunui

district, wherethe community is more

spreadout, she says.

Those efforts saw nearly $700,000 from

the Ministry of SocialDevelopmentbeing

given to develop afood security initiative

in partnership with the Waimakariri

council’s community team, SocialServices

Waimakariri,Satisfy Food Rescue and

food banks across the two districts.

In its 2019/20annual report, the

community team identified its top five

achievements. These includethe

community’s Covid­19 response;marking

20 years as an international safe

community; adoptingthe age­friendly

plan; supporting,connecting and

empoweringmigrants; and working

towards beingamore youth­friendly

Covid­19 forced community groups to be

‘‘The Waimakariri Youth Council and

WaiYouth wereparticularly proactive in

reaching young people stuck at homewith

familyand not abletomake their usual

connectionswith friends duringthe

lockdown, and getting good messages out

there,’’ shesays.

The Covid­19 response meant the

community team and localorganisations

have been putting in long hours to keep

there is in the community.

‘‘For me it highlightedthe absolute

Jan’s Driscoll’s entry,

Standing Alone.

Rangiora woman first

to lead Grey Power

Rangiora’s Jan Pentecost has

become the first woman to lead

the New Zealand Grey Power

Federation in its 34-year history.

Jan has been the board’s

secretary for 10 years.

She was awarded the Queen’s

Service Medal in 2018 for her

voluntary work with seniors, and

sees her new role as president to

lead the federation in its fight for

issues that affect many older

people.

“Across the country we have

many older people with

inadequate income, poor

housing, unacceptable health and

home service care, loneliness and

elder abuse,” she says.

Jan, as chairwoman of the

federation’s Advocacy

Committee, believes the fact that

all the main political parties have

finally agreed to support the

appointment of aSeniors’

Commissioner comes from years

of lobbying by the organisation.

“We have an ageing population,

many of whom are living solely on

their pension. They cannot afford

private medical care; they don’t

own their own homes, so aren’t

able to move into aretirement

village, and can’t pay sky-high

market rent for their

accommodation.

“We have also seen cuts in

home health care for elderly

people still living

independently.”

Jan says the advocacy group,

which has 50,000 members, will

go back to the new government to

ensure that election promises for

Jan Pentecost

aSeniors’ Commissioner are put

into action.

“We need someone with a

similar role to the Children’s

Commissioner and the Race

Relations Commissioner to

advocate effectively for older

people.

‘‘With seniors expected to make

up 25 percent of the population by

2051, and with projections

showing there will be at least 60%

more elderly than children then,

we need an effective voice across

all our issues.”

In her new role, Jan is keen to

put the federation back in the

public eye.

“We want our work to

complement the wonderful effort

made in all local Grey Power

Associations. Clear

communication at all levels will

be my goal.”

HAY, BALEAGE, SILAGE

34 North Canterbury News, November 5, 2020

The art of making good sileage

Most losses that occur when

farmers makesilage are

invisible,but can amount to 40

percent of the original cut

pasture.

Losses occurassugars and

protein in the grass are broken

down by enzymes and bacteria.

This processstartsassoonas

the grass is cut.

Losses reduce quality as well

as quantity, because it is the

highly digestible components

whichbreak downfastest.

The lossesdepend firstly on

the dry matter content of the

pasture to be ensiled.

As cut pasture waits to be

picked up, sugars are lost

through respiration.

Drierpasture is more likely

to be lost while being picked

up, because it is morelikelyto

breakuporblow away.

As the dry matterpercentage

of pasture increases,sodo

Farmers should consider their clover content

Dryland farmers looking to increase the

subterraneanclover content in their

pasturesshould be thinking about

shuttinguppaddocks within the next

couple of weeks to allowseed­set, Beef

and Lamb New Zealand says.

SouthIsland general manager John

Ladley says subterranean (sub) clover

flowers are apparentinpastures at this

time of the year, so it is agood time for

silage,protein and organic

matter can alsobelost because

of air in the stack,orahigh pH.

Fermentation lossesare

lowest in pasture which is

above 25% dry matter.

Silage effluent is surplus

water fromthe silage, which

proteins withitasitflowsout.

Effluent is produced from

silage made out of low dry

matter pasture.Above30% dry

matter,noeffluentlosses will

occur.

In dry grass silage it is a

challenge to achieve good

compaction. Poor compaction

causes air to penetrate the

stack once it is opened.

When air is present, yeasts

are abletogenerate heatfrom

sugars and evenfromlactic

acid, causing losses by convertingthese

nutrientsinto

heat.

Optimumdry matterfor

silage is 25% to 30%.

To achieve thisitis

Compact the silage well.

Tractor wheels shouldnot sink

into the pile of pasture any

further than the depth of

For baled silage, make sure a

high­density baler is used.

Sealthe stack completely

withaweighted, clean,airtight

cover. Do not reopen acovered

stack to add more pasture on

anotherday.

But in this springperiod, farmers

wantingtobuild sub clover content

should avoidgrazing targeted areas below

1200kilograms of dry matter per hectare

and then should allowthe sub clover

plants to set seed by shutting sheep out of

the area for acouple of weeksatleast.

After aspell,itshould be grazed with

cattle to limitgrass­seed production. Do

not use sheep as theytargetsub clover.

Dry summer

looks likely

Making sure there are good stocks of hay,

baleage and silage on hand is good

insurance with adry summer looming.

Soil moisture levels are worryingly low

in many partsofthe countryand Beef

and Lamb New Zealand is urging

farmers to put togetheradrought

contingency plannow.

Its general manager of farming

excellence, Dan Brier, is encouraging

dryland farmers to considerstrategies

such as early weaning, puttingtogether a

simplefeed budget, body condition

scoring, setting triggerdates for specific

actions, and securing supplementary

feed or off­farm grazing.

The focus shouldalways be on

protecting capital stock, which could

mean selling lambs or calves as store,

quitting trading stock before they reach

ideal finishing weights, or gettingrid of

older ewes as early as possible, he says.

“Typically, an early decision is agood

decision,sosetting trigger dates and

stickingtothem is agood strategy in

years where moisture levels are low.”

Early weaning can be agood option in

spring when pasture growth is limited

and lambs and ewes are competing for

feed to the detriment of both,he says.

“Early weaning can be aflexible

management tool that can be used

strategicallyoncertain mobs such as old

ewes or hoggets, but it does allow more

time to put condition back on ewesorsell

cull ewes early,” Dan says.

Body condition scoring is another tool

farmers can use to make the most

effective use of limitedfeed.

The organisation has tools, resources

and case studies to help farmers create

management plans. Go online to

Versatility of wool showcased at show

By DAVID HILL

Imaginecatching thewaves on awoolly

surfboard.

Asurfboard made with alayerof

33­micron wool in placeoffibreglass, and

covered witharesin was just one of the

itemsmade fromNew Zealand wool on

display at the Amberley A&P Show.

The wool display,organised by Cheviot

farmer Lynda Dicksonand run in

conjunction withNorth Canterbury

VeterinaryClinics, was achance to

showcase the versatility of wool.

The Firewire surfboardand wool

coffins greeted visitors as theyentered

the marquee. Whilethe surfboard was

made from Merinowool,the coffins were

made from strongwool,showingthat even

lower micron fleeces have multiple uses.

‘‘We just need to keep getting the word

out there that it’s renewable and we keep

growing it every year,’’Mrs Dickson says.

‘‘And it breaks downatthe end of it’s

life cycle,soyou can put your purewool

products in the garden at the end of its life

and it breaksdown and putsnutrients

back into the soil.’’

This is in contrast to synthetics such as

polar fleece and plasticproducts, which

can take centuries to breakdown.

‘‘Thisiswhat is clogging up our seas

and our oceansatthe moment,’’ she says,

pointing to adisplay of used plastics.

‘‘By2050 there will be more plastics in

the ocean thanfish, which is pretty scary.

Humans havemade 25,000 Empire State

Buildings worthofplastics and only

5percent is recycled.

‘‘And to makeone metre of synthetic

carpet it takes two litresofoil.’’

While many of the products on display

were made overseas, Mrs Dickson hopes

it won’t deterpeople fromswitching to

wool.

‘‘Some peoplewill see aproduct that’s

madeoverseas, but it’s probably made

withNew Zealand wool.Wehave to make

use of technologies overseasand at the

end of the day most of our wool is

exported.’’

Weedons remains unbeaten after five

rounds of country cricket after

cruising to afive­wicket win over

Lincoln on Saturday.

There were also winsfor Cheviot,

Oxford­Rangiora and Leeston­

Southbridge in the latest round of the

CRV Ambreed Country Premier One

Day 2020/21 competition.

At Weedons Domain,visitors

Lincoln battedfirst and got off to a

flying start through openers Hugh

Paterson and Hamish Drummond.

But when wicketkeeper­batsman

Drummond was removed in the11th

over for 42 runs off 35 balls, the

innings stalled.

All five Weedons bowlers chipped

in with consistent wickets, limiting

Lincoln to 163 all out in 34 overs.

Arnav Deb was again the pick of the

bowlers, claiming3/34 in his nine

overs.

Brad Nightingale (22 off 37) and

Todd Inness (26 of 24) got the run

chase off to asolid start, before Sam

Wilson’s 43 off 61 balls set up the

dominant five­wicket win. Deb

topped off his fine day by finishing

the match in premier style with asix.

Big Cheviot win

Cheviot thumped adisappointing

Darfield by 118 runs at the

picturesque Cheviot Domain.

Batting first, the homeMagpies XI

got solid contributions throughout

their order, with Chris Burnett

leading the way with asavage

unbeaten 60 runs off just 40 balls.

Earlier, Ryan Ellisanchored the

innings with ahalf century,as

Cheviot made 222/5 in its allotted 45

overs.

When Darfield’s classy top­order

batsmen of Liam Foulkes (19), Jesse

Frew (5) and Canterbury Kings

seamer Henry Shipley(1) all fell

cheaply, they never challenged the

total. They crumbledtobeall out in

the 25th over for 104.

Low­scoring clash

Tidy bowling and rash shots

resulted in alow­scoring slog at

Mandeville on Saturday.

CRICKET

Home sideOhoka was bundled out

by Oxford­Rangiora for just 64 runs

inside 27 overs, with extras topscoring

with 16. Only two Ohoka

batsmen made double figures, as

Lachie Stove and returning allrounder

Liam Bartholomeusz ripped

through the top order, taking three

wickets apiece.

Oxford­Rangiora stalwart opener

Calvin Scott showed the patience

sometimes required at the batting

crease, with an unbeaten nine runs

off 57 balls to set up the victory.

But the visitors made hard work of

the paltry total, losing six wickets in

the processofsecuring the hardfought

win in 17.1 overs.

Extras were again the top score,

with 16.

Sefton defeated

In the final game,Leeston­

the difference.

Kaiapoi Flood Resilience Investigations

Starting Soon

Council has been awarded central Government

shovel-ready funding to reduce the impact

of flooding on urban and rural properties in

Kaiapoi. To further scope this project we will be

undertaking an aerial survey of the area in late

October/early November via drone.

Alongside the aerial survey, other site

investigations will take place between now

and Christmas –such as digging small holes in

roadside areas to confirm the location, size and

life-span of current infrastructure like pipes.

During the survey stage you may notice some

high-vis wearing workers, surveyors and small

excavators in the business and residential areas of

central Kaiapoi.

The funding will enable the construction of pump

stations and associated infrastructure and create

about 40 jobs suited to local tradespeople.

Following asignificant flood in 2014, the Council

developed aplan to constructpump stationsand

otherstormwater infrastructure in centralKaiapoi to

improve drainageand reduce the impact of flooding.

The upgrade willincrease the resilience of the

stormwater networkacross Kaiapoi andreduce

the likelihoodoffloodinginbig stormevents. The

overall projectcost is $18m andwill be jointly funded

from existing Councilbudgets($9m)aswell as

Government ShovelReady Projectsfunding ($9m).

The physical flood protection works, including the

installation of pump stations and upscaling of

pipes, will take place in the coming year.

Stadium Waimakariri to be Named

MainPower Stadium

MainPower has been announced as lead naming

rights sponsor of the new $28m sports facility at

aspecial event hosted at the MainPower Cricket

Oval last Friday. The announcement means that

Stadium Waimakariri, due to open in July next year,

will now beknown as MainPower Stadium.

Located onColdstream Road, the 6000msq building,

with seating ofupto500 spectators, will add to

asuite of neighbouring sporting facilities already

bearing the MainPower name, including MainPower

Cricket Oval and MainPower Hockey Turf.

McAlpines Mitre 10 Mega was announced as

naming rights sponsor of the stadium’sfitness

facility which will be known as the McAlpine’s Mitre

10 Mega Fitness Centre. The company will also

sponsor the four internal sports courts, which will

be named in recognition of the McAlpines family,

who established their first business in Rangiora

nearly 100 years ago.

Under an agreement between Waimakariri

District Council and North Canterbury Sport and

Recreation Trust, the Trust will raise $1.8m to

contribute towards the Stadium’s construction

and fit-out.

The naming sponsorships are akey part of the

fundraising, however the Trust also used the event

to launch their upcoming multi-tiered sponsorship

campaign to the wider community.

Every human being upon the earth will

one day face an end to their life. The Bible

has messages throughout of away to be
