dig in

over

quarry

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Residents opposed to aproposal to

quarry the Rangiora Racecourse have

no intention of shying away from

making their feelings known, despite

submissions closing this week.

Atotal of 172 submissions were

received by the Waimakariri District

Council and Environment Canterbury

by last Friday.

But ameeting of residents on

Monday night to discuss their

submissions and refine them suggests

there could be aflood of additional

ones by the cut­off time of 5pm on

Friday.

John Mather, who has facilitated

several meetings of residents, says

there will be no let up during the

hiatus between submissions closing

and the hearing of the quarry proposal

by Taggart Earthmoving Ltd.

‘‘There is awillingness to keep the

awareness about the proposal high,

and to keep the momentum going,’’ he

says. ‘‘This is avery democratic

process about people having asay,

rather than experts arguing (the

consent) in the Environment Court,

although it may come to that.

‘‘The best approach is to allow

people to have avoice, and people are

going to find out what heart­felt

thoughts Rangiora residents have

about the quarry,’’ Mr Mather says.

selling arange of products.

It was arelaxed, fun

atmosphere, with an array of

street performers,

children’s entertainment,

live music from

Christchurch covers band

Danger Baby,and Father

Christmas in attendance.

Rangiora’s Steve

Hamilton, who was watching

Lyttelton contortionist Skye

Broberg’s performance, said

it was ‘‘an amazing show’’.

His daughter Zara, aged 6,

was excited to be chosen by

Skye as her assistant for part

of the show.

‘‘We love this stuff. These

kind of community events

are awesome,’’ he said.

‘‘It is one of the reasons we

came to live here. Rangiora

is such agreat community

for families.’’ The show

Hopes high for Toot for Tucker

By DAVID HILL

North Canterbury’s food

banks are looking forward to

receiving aboost from

Tuesday’s Toot for Tucker.

Organiser Bev Wright says

the volunteers are ready to go

and now they need food to

collect when Toot for Tucker

hits the streets of Oxford,

Rangiora, Woodend, Kaiapoi

and Amberley between 6pm

and 7pm on Tuesday.

Food banks that have been

busy supporting families

struggling in the wake of

Covid­19 are hoping for a

boost to help them get

through the Christmas

period.

‘‘What we really need is

food for the food banks, not

just for Christmas but for the

months that come after it.

‘‘Times can get tough when

people go back to work after

Christmas and the kids go

back to school, and especially

for those who have found

themselves out of work.’’

When finances are tight,

food is usually the first thing

people cut back on, Bev says.

‘‘We are catering for the

whole community and there’s

always times when people

find it abit tough.

‘‘Budgets are pretty tough

PLUMBING -new builds, bathroom, kitchen &

laundry alterations, maintenance

for many families. You have

to keep your car on the road

and keep it insured, so you

can find work, so it means the

only real flexibility in the

budget for most people is

food or Christmas presents.’’

Bev says all food collected

on the night will stay in North

Canterbury.

The Waimakariri District Council is doing its

bit to raise Christmas spirits after achallenging

Kaiapoi’s contribution was delayed until

Christmas flags are also going up in Rangiora,

Kaiapoi and Oxford, while little Christmas

trees have been put up on the Williams Street

bridge in Kaiapoi.

Summer flags that usually go up in early

January will arrive alittle later than usual as a

Mixed views on Ravenswood town-centre plan

Thinking big ... Ravenswood Developments Ltd wants to substantially increase the retail space available in its new subdivision, which would effectively create anew town centre.

Pictured is the New World supermarket under construction.

IMAGE: SUPPLIED

By DAVID HILL

Aproposal to create anew town

centre zone at Ravenswood has

been met with amixed

reaction.

The Waimakariri District

Council has expressed

concerns at the proposals in the

private plan change request

submitted by Ravenswood

Developments Ltd, which was

notified this month.

But Woodend­Sefton

Community Board chairwoman

Shona Powell suspects the

development is inevitable,

although the board has yet to

discuss the proposal.

‘‘Personally, Isee that it

certainly has pros and cons, but

the way Ilook at it, where is the

retail going to go if it doesn’t go

here? Rangiora is pushing out

in all directions and it runs the

risk of becoming disjointed,

while development opportunities

in Kaiapoi are

limited.’’

The biggest challenge with

developing anew town centre

at Ravenswood is access,

because of traffic volumes on

State Highway 1, Ms Powell

says. ‘‘It’s going to happen

anyway, but the big question is

how do people get there safely?

‘‘The only safe way to get into

Ravenswood is by private car.

There’s no bus and no safe

access for walkers and

cyclists.’’

With the retail developments

in the area set to grow, she

believes now is the time to look

at creating aWoodend/Pegasus

promotions group to support

local businesses.

At present, Woodend and

Pegasus come under the

Kaiapoi Promotions

Association.

‘‘There are alot of homebased

businesses in the area

and Ithink people are

surprised at just how many

businesses there are —it’s not

just retail.’’

Ms Powell says the board will

be meeting this week to discuss

whether to make asubmission

before the initial consultation

period ends on December 4.

The council’s development

planning manager, Trevor

Ellis, says council staff had

planned to review the zoning as

part of the District Plan review,

with aview to opening up more

commercial space.

‘‘The council has for some

time been looking at the zoning

in the area and looking at

where the key activity centres

should be and Ravenswood is

looking to drive that forward.

‘‘The proposal enables more

commercial floor space which

is good for the district in

potentially creating more jobs

and more commercial activity.’’

Ravenswood’s proposal is for

12.8 hectares to be rezoned as

business zone 1(town centre

zone), which would include

35,000 square metres of retail

floor space.

But the council has concerns

with the overall proposal and

will be making asubmission.

Concerns include ‘‘the extent

of the floor space’’ and the

potential impact on other

centres, Mr Ellis says.

‘‘The submission will be

around the scale of the

commercial centre and seeking

amore accurate plan and

clearer objectives.’’

There will be afurther

submission period in the New

Year, where interested parties

can review submissions before

public hearings in front of an

independent commissioner.

KAIKŌURA VIEWS

MAYOR CRAIG MACKLE

Fine service acknowledged

Last week we announcedthe appointment

of our new chief executive, WillDoughty.

As we welcome Will to the role, Iwant to

acknowledge everything that outgoing

chiefexecutive Angela Oosthuizen has

achieved.

Angela arrived in the job to find apartly

builtCivic Centre withbudget issues, and

oversaw its completion.

Then the quake completely changed the

lay of the land, literally!

This is not ajob thatmany would want or

understand,but she has led the council

staffand communitythroughthe response

and recovery phase successfully.

During Angela’s time as chiefexecutive,

a$38.6 million infrastructure rebuild has

been delivered on budget, she has built a

strong, capableteam of staff,and is leaving

council in amuch stronger financial

position than imagined.

Iknow that Angelaworked countless

hoursabove and beyond what was asked of

her, including nightsand weekends. As a

result we are in agood position to move

forward.

Council chief executives takealot of

flak,mostly incorrect and sometimes

personal and unfair.

Iknow that Kaikoura can rise above that

and is a‘‘bigger’’ community, so I’d like to

extend abig thank you to Angela for all

that she has done bothfor the district and

the people living there.

All ratepayerswill soon get the annual

Farmers must unite to

stop being ‘run over’

DearEditor,

Iamone who has longbeen wary of

the agenda and operatingmethods of

Environment Canterbury and, as a

result,have not attended meetings

involving them or respondingfarmers.

Recently, anew ECan chief executive

invitedfarmers to ameeting (North

CanterburyNews,November 12). I

decided to attend. Anew broom,anew

beginning,ashowofgood faith.

My initial reaction was one of positive

surprise and even the beginnings of

optimism, but 15 minutes into the

2 1 ⁄2­hour session,reality —anold reality

—began to reassert itself. Anew agent,

the same message.

Ilike to think in pictures.For abrief

timeIsaw in my mind’s eyeawooden

horse.Isaw threelittle pigs. Isaw a

gingerbread man. It is interesting how

old fables and old realities can cut

through dynamics intendedtofudge,

and what somemay callsophistry

intended to assuretrust—atrust

alreadydepleted, atrust now totally

bereft.

Ileft the meeting thinking thatif

farmers are to haveany chance of

avoiding being ‘‘run over’’ they needto

mirrortrade unions in other industries.

Hallmarksofsuccess aresix­fold:

Singularity of focus, clearmessaging,

strength in numbers, assure resolute

leadership, absenceoffactions, and

solidarity.

Let’s do it. Whatstopsus? Apathy,

fear, yes but probably not. Rather, our

verystrengths renderuspowerlessand

ripefor takeover. Thesestrengths are

fierce individualism, independenceand

selfreliance. Indeed,thesequalitiescan

onlyensure that we willbedivided and

ruled.Together, these veryattributes

are our substantial weakness.

Teamwork is our ace card. The

obituary of two of the three pigs would

havelamentedthe lack of teamwork too

late.

As for the gingerbread man, his trust

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

and co­operative nature —his strengths

—led to his demise. If he was alive

today,and in asense perhapsheis, he

would be impressed by clever dynamics

and perhapssubtle sophistry.

He would be adept at giving the

benefit of the doubt.Hewould be second

to noneatturning the other cheekand

takingrefuge in naivety.

And as to the wooden horse?He/she

would be lavishly dining on oats, chaff,

and fresh lucerne—all products

Praise for sandpit

Dear Editor,

What agreat decision by Te Matauru

Primary Schooltoopt for agiant

sandpit, also for use by older students

(NorthCanterbury News,November 12).

Asandpitallows opportunities for a

large number of students to learn

together and to play without rules and

limitation. This is one of the cheapest

resources to provide for creativity,

engagement,co­operation, problem

solving and awide varietyofplay

choices. This is wherethe Key

Competencies of the New Zealand

Curriculum and inclusion can be seen in

actionduring every breaktime.

Many schools withlarge or multiple

sandpits have added hoses, ropes,

pulleys, buckets, funnels and ramps for

experimentation.Students oftenlike to

bring toys and objects from home which

also addstotheir learning through

sharing and managing theirpossessions.

Well done Rachele Poole and Te

“Getting anetworkofcharging

In December last year, the council

committed to supporting the uptake

of electric vehicles in the districtby

making space available for charging

infrastructure in council­owned car

parks.

Councillors, afterconsidering two

formal proposals, ultimately

accepted astaffrecommendation to

work with Meridian,which has

extensive experience with electric

vehicles and associated

infrastructure.

The first chargers willbeinstalled

in the car park behindRangiora

Libraryand willallow four vehicles

to charge simultaneously.

Once those are established, there

are plans for installing more

MANDEVILLE CRAFT FESTIVAL

Festival set for record crowd

The Mandeville Craft Festival has

firmly established itself on the North

Canterbury events calendar.

The cruisy day out for families,

complete with arelaxed community

vibe, has grown into more than just a

major fundraiser for the Ohoka Rugby

Club.

It is now amuch vaunted retail

experience, where visitors can enjoy

live music, entertainment, colour and a

country atmosphere at the picturesque

Mandeville Sports Centre.

Organiser Dee Bigelow believes this

year’s event on Sunday, December 6,

will see the largest crowd yet turn out

to enjoy the 130 stalls, including ahuge

array of tempting food stalls offering

everything from Mexican, barbecue and

gourmet burgers, to Sushi, hot potatoes,

dumplings and salads.

Then there are sweet treats to follow,

including pancakes, waffles, and ice

creams, along with hot and cold drinks,

juices, smoothies, and abar.

Dee has now been at the helm for five

years, ensuring acontinuation of the

work of all the people in the rugby club

who have served on the committee over

the years.

She has helped build asound platform

for the festival to flourish and believes

this year will help build momentum

toward next year’s 10th anniversary

celebrations.

Dee loves the challenge of providing

exciting and tempting stalls for people to

treat themselves, or buy gifts for others.

“There will be stalls you have visited

before and love, and you can discover

new favourites,” she says.

“I love it. Ilove the feedback, and love

to see people enjoying what’s on offer,”

she says.

She is also excited to have three

musicians this year. Acrowd favourite,

Sharon Miller returns.

Sharon is familiar to many as a

presenter at Compass FM. She will

also multi-task on the day as she has a

regular stall, Art of Aroma.

Acoustic duo, The WaxBirds, from

Oxford, will play arange of easy

listening songs, alongside their own

material. They will donate 20 percent of

merchandise and album sales to various

New Zealand Wildlife conservation

efforts.

Mandeville’s Ellen Rose has arrived

back in New Zealand and quarantined in

time to play at the festival. She has been

in the United Kingdom for the past few

years working as amusician playing at

restaurants, pubs, events and weddings,

and is “coming home”, having gone

to Pony Club at the Mandeville Sports

Centre for years.

Willoughby’s Creative from Rangiora

will provide ahands-on experience for

festival-goers with fibre and they will be

joined by several other activity-based

stallholders this year as Dee looks to

Crowd favourite, Sharon Miller is back again this year to entertain the crowds.

develop this area.

Dee begins organising the event in

March, with the rugby club joining her

later in the year.

She says the event is apassion because

it helps the community and provides a

platform for local crafts people sell their

products.

“It is acruisy day, atanawesome

location. There is lots of off street

parking and it is only $5 to get in.”

This year Tall Poppy Real Estate

North Canterbury and Enterprise North

Canterbury are supporting the event.

Event proceeds will go toward a

proposed LED lights upgrade, jerseys

and other gear for junior and senior

teams.

Back as the boss ... Ryan Demmocks and

poetry — Fancy Dancing —next month.

Bernadette loves the Amberley­based

The Friends of the Library. Since 2008

she has curated and chaired an annual

Bernadette will be joined at the

launch by Rangiora writer Chelsea

Houghton, whom she taught at the

Hagley Writers’ Institute afew years

ago.

Chelsea gained amasters degree in

Creative Writing from Massey

University, and has had her poetry

published.

‘‘We thought it would be fun to have a

launch which included readings and

conversation,’’ Bernadette says.

Fancy Dancing contains material from

four of Bernadette’s earlier books,

including Maukatere, Floating Mountain,

which was published in 2016.

There is also asubstantial number of

new poems, many of them touching on

her life at Amberley Beach.

‘‘It’s as close as I’ll ever get to writing

an autobiography,’’ she says.

Bernadette wonders where on earth

the ‘‘wilful’’ sonnets in the final pages of

the book have come from.

‘‘It was such fun writing them. It was as

if Ihad kicked down the stable doors and

taken to the hills.’’

Afeature of Fancy Dancing is artwork

In 2015, Bernadette collaborated with

Robyn on Matakaea, Shag Point.

Bernadette was born and raised in

Day Bros Painting &Plastering -

quality handling for aquality finish

Day Bros Painters and Plasterers has been

serving the North Canterburycommunity for

more than 30 years.

The family business was established by

brothers Graham and Kevin Day back in the

1980s, with Graham’s son Brett joining the

business as ateenager.

Company directors Brett and Jemma took

over in 2005 and now employ nine loyal staff,

including two apprentices, who live locally.

“Wehave managed to retain our staff through

Covid-19 and we are thankful to our loyal clients

that we have been able to do that,” Jemma says.

“Wewere able to go back to work at Alert

Level 3and we followed all government

guidelines whilst doing our best to support our

staff through averydifficult time.

“Wetakehealth and safely veryseriously for

our guys and making sure they have the right

qualifications.”

The couple works in closely with general

manager Davitt Joslen, who has been with the

company for two years, and since the lockdown

have added aprofessional plasterer,Sam van

Hulten,tothe team.

“Painting is the last thing that gets done in a

house, but if the plastering hasn’t been done

right it can ruin the finish, so having control

over the plastering helps us with our quality

control,” Brett says.

Day Bros takes on jobs between Christchurch

and Kaikoura and has done anumber of

insurance and earthquake work in recent years

in the northernpart of the region.

“Brett has worked closely with clients and

insurance companies to make sure clients are

getting what they are entitled to,” Jemma says.

This experience has allowed Brett to see a

gap in the market in helping clients to manage

the overall project, whether that is kitchen or

bathroom make-overs, repair or maintenance

work and building work.

“A lot of clients don’t know where to start,

so we can sit down with them and talk them

through it,” Brett says.

“Weoffer the full package and take the hassle

out of aproject and we deal with other tradies

and contractors so we can arrange

for the work to getdone on

time.”

Major painting projects

completed in recent

years include the

historic Highfield

Woolshed at

Outdoor

Waiau, the Waiau

Community Pool

and churches

at Waiau and

Waikari.

Living

When it comes

to hazardous

substances, the

Day Bros team

works in with

other contractors

who they can call on

for removal of asbestos

and methamphetamine

contamination.

Making amark ...The historic Highfield Woolshed restoration at Waiau is one

of many projects Day Bros Painters and Plasters has worked on since the

November 2016 earthquake. Photo: Supplied

Many landlords

are not aware

that pre-checks

are required

for insurance

purposes for any

future claims for

methamphetamine

contamination, Brett

says.

Day Bros takes on both

commercial and residential

work and can

also do airless

spraying, water blastering, roof

work and floor work, and offers arange of

paint colour options to clients from all the top

paint brands.

‘‘Weare not the cheapest around, but we

can offer advice on different aspects of awork

project if are stuck for ideas and Brett can sit

down and help you with you colour selections,’’

Jemma says.

Day Bros is amember of Master Painters

New Zealand and the team goes out of its way

to ensure they leave awork site clean and tidy.

‘‘Wepride ourselves on that,’’ Brett adds.

‘‘And we take special care of people’s property

and especially their gardens.”

The Mill Waikuku

Making it safer for Woodend School

students to cross State Highway 1isa

step closer.

Work on installing traffic signals

outside the school began this week.

The original crossing point has been

withdrawn and atemporary one put in

place until the traffic signals are operational

ahead of the new school year.

Representatives from the New

Zealand Transport Agency and Fulton

Hogan talked to the children about the

work on Monday.

Waimakariri District Mayor Dan

Gordon and school principal Adrienne

Simpson were also there to celebrate

the start of the work and try out the

temporary crossing.

Speeds through the area will be

reduced to 30kmh during the work.

Motorists are urged to take extra care

and follow the signs.

The work comes after lobbying from

the Woodend community for aroad

bypass, which has yet to be approved.

The agency has meanwhile agreed to

safety improvements for pupils and

other users when crossing SH1.

Mr Gordon said the signals were a

great start in making the Woodend,

Ravenswood and Pegasus communities

safer.

Special honour ... North Canterbury Musicals life member Edy Lawrey has been awarded

aMusical Theatre New Zealand Merit Award to honour her outstanding achievement and

contribution to musical theatre.

PHOTO: SHELLEY TOPP

Edy’scontribution to

musical theatre noted

By SHELLEY TOPP

North Canterbury Musicals life member

Edy Lawrey has been awarded the

prestigious Musical Theatre New

Zealand (MTNZ) Merit Award.

The national award was introduced in

1993 to honour outstanding achievement

and contribution to musical theatre.

North Canterbury Musicals secretary

Angela Peverill says Edy is atreasured

member.

‘‘We are very appreciative of the time

she has given and continues to give to

our society.’’

Edy began her association with the

North Canterbury Musical Society

(NCMS), as it was known then, with her

husband, Graeme Lawrey, in 1986.

‘‘Graeme was in the NCMS production

of Fiddler on the Roof that year,’’ Edy

says. Graeme died four months ago. He

had also been alife member of the

NCMS and aMerit Award recipient.

He was instrumental in establishing

Rangiora’s Northbrook Studios

performing arts buildings where North

Canterbury Musicals is based. He

negotiated with the council for the land

to establish Northbrook Studios and

organised the transportation of the

former tech block buildings from

Rangiora High School to the Northbrook

Road site in 1988.

‘‘That is his legacy,’’ Edy says.

The couple shared acommon interest

in music and the theatre. They met at the

Oamaru Operatic and Musical Society.

They were married for nearly 50 years

and their four children, including NCMS

committee member and life member

Leanne O’Mahony, all share their

interest in music and the theatre.

Edy’s role has been as apianist, either

as arepetiteur or as an orchestra

member (or both).

‘‘I have played piano for 25 shows and

concerts over the years,’’ she says.

Edy also served eight years as a

committee member and was the

treasurer for two of those years.

She has also done front­of­house

ushering for many annual productions,

as did Graeme.

Edy has also been the pianist for the

weekly rehearsals of North Canterbury

Musicals’ singers group, as well as their

performances, for more than 10 years.

She loves the joy that the music and

harmonies give her and revels in the

camaraderie of the group.

‘‘They are avery friendly, social group

of people,’’ she says, which has been a

great help to her since Graeme’s death.

Her favourite show is Les Miserables.

‘‘The music is very uplifting,’’ she says.

Edy was born in The Netherlands and

came to New Zealand with her family

when she was five.

She inherited her love of music from

her mother, Anneke Buutveld, ‘‘a

proficient pianist’’, and her maternal

grandfather, Eduard van Vianen, a

professional violinist.

Emma Blackwell named Dux

Head girl Emma Blackwell has been named

Kaiapoi High School Dux for 2020.

The resultwas announcedatthe school’s

recent prizegiving.

It was abig night for Emma,who won the TE

developing for Millton Memorial Park, which

will see undeveloped areas transformed.

Waimakariri residents will soon have an

opportunity to share their feedback on

the development of Millton Memorial

Park, alongside River Road in Rangiora.

The Rangiora­Ashley Community

Board approved consulting on adraft

plan for the area earlier this month.

Staff outlined the proposed features of

the plan during the board’s November

meeting, which includes an arboretum

(an area devoted to specimen plantings

of trees and shrubs), and expansion of

the dog park with an agility area.

Aspace has also been identified for

the North Canterbury Model Railway

Club to construct anew building to

house the club’s displays.

Apublic toilet is included in the plans,

and is budgeted within the council’s

Long Term Plan for 2024/25.

Board chairman Jim Gerard says the

board is looking forward to sharing the

draft plan with the community and

encourages residents to tell the board

what they think, and provide ideas and

feedback to help form the final master

plan for the reserve.

During adeputation to the board in

June, Rangiora resident Trevor Wright

expressed his vision for an arboretum.

Staff are now looking into tree species

that will thrive in the stony, freedraining

soils of the area.

The board has used funds from its

General Landscaping Budget to help

seed the reserve development and get it

off the ground quicker.

‘‘The board is very supportive of the

How Marvel Health screening can

reveal the causes of chronic tiredness

The Whole-body health screening and

monitoring performed atMarvel Health

can reveal the underlying causes of

chronic tiredness.

Several health problems are associated

with tiredness.

Chronic inflammation of the gut is

awell-known cause of chronic fatigue

syndrome. Microbes such as Candida,

as well as food allergies and food

additive sensitivities, are some of the

causes of chronic inflammation of the

gut which impacts food digestion and

nutrient absorption leading tonutrient

deficiencies.

Some nutrients such asIron, Vitamin

B12, Chromium and Selenium are crucial

for generating energy inthe body.

Iron and Vitamin B12 are needed to

produce haemoglobin, the red pigment

in blood that carries oxygen to tissues.

Oxygen is also essential for generating

energy, and areduced oxygen supply to

the tissues can cause chronic tiredness.

Diseases that impact breathing, such as

asthma and chronic allergies, can cause

chronic tiredness.

Hormonal imbalances such as

reduced thyroid function and adrenal

insufficiencies are recognised causes of

tiredness and chronic fatigue syndrome.

The Marvel Health Scan examines all

the organs and tissues in the body and

uses advanced

algorithms to

determine the likely

diseases that may

be present.

It screens the body for some of

the underlying causes ofchronic

inflammation and chronic tiredness,

including harmful microbes (bacteria,

fungi, worms), food allergies and nutrient

deficiencies. Itcan determine the rate of

inflammation and degeneration ofthe

thyroid and adrenal glands and other

organs, toreveal their state ofhealth and

level ofactivity.

The scan performs adetailed

examination of the whole body and

generates acomprehensive and in-depth

report of aperson’sstate of health.

Our doctors and specialists study the

report from the scan and guide you in

ways to support the healing ofthe body.

Children and pets

get chance to shine

By DAVID HILL

Canterbury children lined

up for their annual show

experience last week after

an uncertain year.

The cancellationofthe

New Zealand Agricultural

Show because of Covid­19

did not stoplocal children

getting their annual taste of

showing, with the

Canterbury A&P

Association’s children’s

agricultural day going

ahead recently.

While therewere many

pet lambs, afew chooks and

apig on show, the pet calves

were notablyabsent

because of arecent reemergence

of Mycoplasma

bovis.

Senior lambs judge

JonathanCarden­Holdstock

said he was impressed by

the stockskills of the

children.

Several childrenhad

even researched the origins

of their sheep breeds,he

said.

‘‘Thekids’ knowledge is

While most of the

prizewinners came from

River,Broomfield School’s

won champion pig with his

pet, Pigasso.

Chris stays as co-president

Chris Herbert plans to show

cattle with his sons for a

change at next year's New

Zealand Agricultural Show.

The North Canterbury

farmer has stayed on as

Canterbury A&P Association

co­president to support the

association through a

challenging 2020 after

presiding over last year’s

show and serving nearly 20

years on the cattle

committee.

This year’s show was

cancelled because of Covid­

19.

Mr Herbert has agreed to

stay as co­president to

support incoming president

Chris Harris.

Over the last few years, Mr

Herbert’s sons Louie, aged

17, and Charlie, 15, have

taken charge of the family’s

blonde d’Aquitaine stud

cattle at showtime while dad

was busy with show duties.

“I’m looking forward to

just helping the boys with

our cattle because the whole

time the boys have been

showing, I’ve been on the

cattle committee and I

haven’t been able to do it.

“But Idon’t think you ever

really step aside; you just

move to one side. It’s a

lifetime commitment,” he

said, emphasising he would

continue to be involved in

some capacity.

The Herberts have taken a

year off showing while they

complete an embryo

programme through the

herd, which is based at

Omihi, north of Waipara.

But the blonde

d’Aquitaine cattle from the

family farm will be back at

the show next year, he said.

Award nominations open

Nominations are open for the 2021

Award.

The winner will follow in the

footsteps of Ash­Leigh Campbell, who is

the technical farm manager for Ngai

Tahu’s eight dairy farms, plus support

farms, at Eyrewell, near Oxford.

The 29­year­old said it was “a

complete shock” to be named the

youngest winner of the award this year.

Dairy women are encouraged to

nominate their role models in the

industry before February for the 10th

anniversary of the award.

Finalists will be put before ajudging

panel comprising Dairy Women’s

Network trustee Sophie Stanley, 2019

Dairy Woman of the Year Trish Rankin

and representatives from Fonterra,

Global Women and Ballance Agri­

Nutrients.

Dairy Women’s Network chief

executive Jules Benton hopes that the

award will open up to young women

who haven’t had the on­farm experience

of previous recipients, but can

show commitment to the industry

through other avenues.

‘‘One of our core values as an

organisation is about seizing

opportunities, and this year’s recipient,

Ash­Leigh Campbell, demonstrates this

in both her work and her attitude.

‘‘We hope that her success will

encourage other young women in the

industry to nominate their peers, and

remember that there is no age limit.’’

Nominations can be made at dwn.co.

Weedons battle to win over Southbrook

Teams ravaged by their stars being away

on representative duty meant others had

to perform in the latest round of country

cricket at the weekend.

Weedons got back on track with ahardfought

win over Southbrook, while there

were also victories for Cheviot, Sefton

and Darfield in the CRV Ambreed

Country Premier One Day 2020/21

competition on Saturday.

Arriving at ablustery Southbrook

Park, Weedons won the toss and decided

to bowl on atricky wicket.

The home side struggled to gain much

momentum throughout its first innings,

getting contributions from batsmen

throughout the order, but no­one kicked

on for abig score.

They were bowled out in the 44th over

for 138, with Sam Clarke returning the

fine figures of 4/20 off his maximum nine

overs.

At the change of innings, Southbrook

felt about 20 runs short and, after asolid

start by Weedons openers Todd Inness

(41 runs off 52 balls) and Jayden

McIntyre (17 off 75), appeared in

desperate trouble.

But when Weedons lost four wickets in

aquick cluster, Southbrook sniffed an

outside chance of victory. The side kept

chipping away and got anervous

Weedons six down before afew lusty

blows from Arnav Deb sealed the fourwicket

win for the visitors.

Dillon’s five­wicketbag

At Lincoln Domain, the visiting

Cheviot Magpies racked up 214/8 in its

allotted 45 overs.

Jack Hyde (46 off 67) and Ryan Ellis (55

off 87) set the strong foundations before

Scott Burnett whacked 42 off 27 balls to

round off the innings.

But it was 15­year­old schoolboy

Ronan Dillon, making his senior debut,

who stole the day by taking afive­wicket

bag.

Lincoln’s run chase was built around a

century opening partnership between

Hugh Paterson (80 off 108) and Cameron

Powell (31 off 61).

With the run rate climbing, keeperbatsman

Liam Robinson made alate

charge but it ultimately wasn’t enough,

and Cheviot secured avaluable 14­run

win.

Seftongrinds out win

Sefton ground out atough 13­run win

over North Canterbury rivals Oxford­

Rangiora at Pearson Park on the back of

quality batting by club stalwarts Tim

Harrison and Nigel Granger.

Batting in the unaccustomed position

of No. 4, Harrison anchored the Sefton

Seals’ innings of 207/7, making an unbeaten

85, and combining with Granger

in a125­run sixth wicket partnership.

Chasing 208 to win, Oxford­Rangiora

fell 13 runs short, despite 67 from allrounder

Lachie Stove. The Sefton

bowlers combined well to dry up the

runs and eke out the victory.

Darfield victorious

Adepleted Leeston­Southbridge,

ravaged by players away on

representative duties, was thumped by a

ruthless Darfield.

Inserted at Leeston Park, Liam

Foulkes destroyed the makeshift

Leeston­Southbridge batting order,

claiming the remarkable figures of 6/14

off nine overs.

Chasing just 104 to win, Darfield

completed the rout, knocking off the

total inside 16 overs.

Ohoka had the bye.

Short scorecards:

Southbrook 138 (S Bing 27, MBoyles

25, AProuse 20; SClarke 4/20, J

Richards 2/23, ADeb 2/25) lost to

School teams take to river track for Rakahuri Bike Blast

Pedal power was the name of the

game for about 260 young North

Cantabrians on Monday as they

competed in the Rakahuri Bike

Blast, aSefton School fundraiser.

Atotal of 130 teams of two, from

Years 5/6 and 7/8, took to the

Rakahuri/Ashley River track to

compete in their age groups.

School pupils from throughout

the region, including from the

Hanmer Springs, Amuri Area,

Oxford Area, Clarkville,

Swannanoa, and Southbrook

schools, joined with Sefton on

their mountain bikes and had a

blast.

The teams had to ride laps of

the course over three hours,

with atag system after each lap

to ensure the workload was

shared.

Asafe road journey begins with

good communication.

Hurunui road safety coordinator

Dean Eades is

dedicating time to interacting

with those who use the roads in

the district.

Dean, who has recently taken

up the role, is working with the

police, New Zealand Transport

Agency, the Road Transport

Association, ACC, neighbouring

councils, and community

groups.

‘‘It’s about working together to

continually create safer roading

environments throughout our

district,’’ he says.

Acommunity­led road safety

project, 1600K: Getting There

Together, is one of the focuses of

Dean’s work.

Part of this project is the

interactive map that the council

uses as atool to stay familiar

with community experiences on

the networks.

Snap Send Solve is another

interactive connection between

the council and the community

which Dean is reminding people

about.

Residents can either

download the Snap Send Solve

app on to their smartphone or

use the web page in their

browser to capture and report

issues with roads or roading

infrastructure.

‘‘If you see aproblem, you

snap it and then send it off to

council. We solve it, and get

back to you with an update. He

urges people to use it as much as

possible to report potholes,

wilding pines, road damage,

Safety first ... Dean Eades is the new road safety co­ordinator in the Hurunui district.

damaged bridge ends, or

anything else.

‘‘We love to hear about them,

so we can fix them and make our

roads as safe as possible.’’

Dean says the key to safer

roads is communication and it

works both ways —the council

and its agencies providing

messages, improvements and

support, and the community

providing feedback and local

knowledge.

‘‘I’m looking forward to the

opportunity to see that what we

do as council, in co­operation

with our agencies, to ultimately

create areally positive outcome

on both our State Highways and

our regional roads, where

everyone can share it safely and

happily.’’

Dean has afew tips for

ensuring asafe and happy

upcoming summer holiday

season:

Give yourself plenty of time

for unexpected delays;

Remember that the roads will

be busy, so allow extra time;

Stick to the speed limit, and

remember simple road rules

such as safe cornering,

indicating, and using your

headlights;

For those who will be towing,

make sure the trailer or caravan

is hooked up properly and any

load is safe. Stick to the speed

limit, and pull over where

possible;

Take breaks on long journeys.

What’s happening in your

community…

Safety First for Community

The Woodend-Seon Community Board

recommended extending the Rangiora Woodend

Path along School Road to the State Highway at

their last meeting.

This plan uses the existing road to accommodate

the path and moves the traffic lanes slightly east.

It provides the opportunity for plantings, separated

with on-street parking bays, and kerbing that

acts as abuffer between people on the path and

vehicles.

Shona Powell, Board Chair says,

“This is another step in connecting paths to make

it safer for pedestrians and cyclists to move

between our communities. This will work well with

the new signalised pedestrian crossing outside the

school is in place, early next year."

Makeover for Millton Memorial Park

At the recent Rangiora Ashley Community Board

meeting it was agreed to ask the public to share

their feedback on the development of Millton

Memorial Park.

Adra plan was presented, which includes an

arboretum (an area devoted to specimen plantings

of trees and shrubs), and expansion ofthe dog

park with an agility area.

Aspace has also been identified for the North

Canterbury Model Railway Club to construct anew

building to house their displays. Apublic toilet

is included in plans, and is budgeted within the

Council’s Long Term Plan for year 2024/25.

“We’re looking forward to sharing the dra Plan

with the community and encourage residents to

tell us what they think and give ustheir ideas and

feedback to help form the final master plan for the

reserve.” says Board Chair Jim Gerard.

New Greenspace Projects for Kaiapoi-

Tuahiwi

The Kaiapoi-Tuahiwi Community Board approved

arange of new Greenspace projects at their

November meeting, including $25,000 to develop

Tuahiwi Reserve.

The funding will allow the community to undertake

adecent size project within the reserve, and the

Council will now talk with locals, Tuahiwi School

and Ngāi Tūāhuriri about what they’d like to see

happen.

“This will be acommunity driven project” said

Deputy Board Chair Jackie Watson. “Its success will

depend on ideas coming from local residents.”

Ideas already proposed include Pa Harakeke

(an area of flax for weaving) and additional

landscaping around the children’s play area at the

front of the reserve.

Getting Ready for Summer

As the weather starts towarm up hopefully, you

might be thinking about visiting your favourite

swimming spots across the District.

It’s good to know that our favourite rivers,

streams and beaches are regularly monitored

by Environment Canterbury. They have agreat

website that is updated regularly through summer

letting you know where is good to swim and which

areas to avoid.

As well as water quality information this site also

lets you know about changing conditions and any

health warnings the Medical Officer of Health
