Auckland

buyer for

complex

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The Brackenfields shoppingprecinct in

Amberley has beensold to an Auckland

property investor.

The buyer is described as aseasoned

property investor who has asignificant

retailand supermarketportfolio.

Tim Rookes,the managingdirector of

real estate firm CBRE Christchurch,

which marketed the centre, said the

buyer is aspecialistproperty owner

and developer. He takesownershipin

April.

‘‘The sale is very positive for the

centre,’’ Mr Rookes says.

The retailmarket was challengingat

the moment, but the new ownerhad

some great ideas, he said.

‘‘He is workingwith the current

ownersoninitiatives and ideas.’’

The shopping centre—the land and

buildingsonly —includes aCountdown

supermarket as the anchortenant, as

well as retailstores. It was offered for

sale by deadline private treaty.

The lettable area on the 27,021 square

metre site is 5790sqm.

The centrefronts on to Carters Road

(StateHighway1)through the town

centre. There is also access off

Amberley Beach Road.

When the property went on the

market, Mr Rookes said there had been

unprecedented results in commercial

sales this year.Therehad been aspike

in owner­occupier enquiry, fuelled by

low interest rates.

He had anticipated good national

interest in Brackenfields, as

supermarket­anchored investments

were seldom availablefor purchase.

The centreopened in May 2014,with

acore group of abouthalf adozen retail

outlets joiningCountdown.

Alife of adrenaline and adventure

Nick Latz’sfamily says the impact The

Champion Centre had on his life is

immeasurable.

Nick, aged 39, hasDown syndrome.

His younger sister, Annabelle, will run

the Tarawera 100 miler Ultramarathon

in Rotorua in February to raise funds to

help fill the significantfinancial gap the

centre must make up everyyear.

Each year, more than 200 pre­school

children with significant disabilities rely

on the critical early intervention work by

The Champion CentreinChristchurch.

The centre gets 78 percent of its

fundingfrom the governmentand relies

on grantsand fundraisers for the rest.

Unable to accesssome traditional

fundingstreams because of Covid­19, the

organisation is this year fighting to make

up a$600,000 shortfall.

Annabelle remembers her brother

attending thecentreand knows firsthand

how muchthe early intervention

therapyhelped him to lead afull and

independent life.

‘‘It’s aprivilege to run ultramarathons,

andaneven bigger privilege to have Nick

as my big brother,and have this

opportunity to raisemoney for these

youngsterswho arestartingontheir very

special journey,’’ Annabellesays.

Conqueringpersonal challenges

seems to run throughthe veins of the

Latz family.

Nick started skiing at theage of eight

under the wing of Skiing for the

Disabled, through which he spends

almost every Saturday in winter up on

the slopestraining at Mount Hutt.

In 2013, Nick won abronze medalin

the Alpine Skiing IntermediateGiant

Slalom at the 10th Special Olympics

World Winter Games in South Korea.

Nick’sparents,Kate and Peter Latz,

saythe Champion Centreliterally saved

them after Nick was born.

‘‘From those initial feelings of being

completely at aloss,wewere reassured

within hours of Nick’s birththat not only

was help at hand,but that there was far

more that was normal about our baby

than not normal, and we should treat him

The HanmerSprings Fete,

the Hurunui GardenFestival

and the Amberley A&P Show

were held during the last

weekend of October.

Atotal of 2500 visitors

turnedout for the third

Hurunui Garden Festival,

doublelast year’s number.

Collectively, theypaid more

than 7000 visits to gardens.

Organiser GaryMitchell

He said running all three

events over one weekend

encouraged people to stay

longer and do more.

‘‘The visitors loved getting a

chance to visitprivate

gardensand talk to the

owners,and learn from them.

The owners loved people

oohing and aahing overtheir

gardens.’’

It was the second year for

the Hanmer SpringsFete.

Organiser Catherine

Batterson said the fetewas a

great boostfor site owners

who, like so many, had

enduredatough year.

It has been no picnic for Ted, who has been

found lost and alone on the Rakahuri Trail at

the Ashley River.

He is now in the safe hands of the police, who

are anxious to get him home for Christmas.

Ted is no lightweight and stands about a

metre tall.

He will remain hanging out with the local

constabulary while efforts continue to find his

owner.

Officers hope he will soon be reunited with

his rightful owner.

He was found by apasser­by on Thursday,

November 12.

Anyone who may be able to help get him

home can call the police on 105 and quote the

file number 201112/7099.

Visitor numbers through

‘‘We had amazingfeedback

and the pandemic,which

boosted visitornumbers by

Ms Batterson said many

visitors attendedthe fete

The Widest

Music Variety

By ROBYN BRISTOW

There is alittle bit of magic in

Culverden’s Rutherford

Reserve and Domain.

Afairyland awaits visitors,

with 34 fairy doors now

gracing the area.

The tiny doors, which

proved ahit with many

children on Sunday, are

thanks to an initiative by the

Culverden Playcentre,

supported by playcentre

families, local businesses and

organisations.

The magical world of

fairyland was introduced to

the playcentre during atrip

to Hanmer Springs, where

fairy doors in the forest

captivated their little

charges.

Culverden playcentre mum

Stacey Ginders organised the

doors, using ajigsaw to

produce some interesting

shapes from designs

submitted by families.

Kathryn Langford finished

the doors, using her eye for

detail in painting them.

There are traditional

Filipino homes, gumboots,

and farm animals, and an

important door thanking

sponsors. They include the

Culverden Community

Committee, which funded the

project alongside the

Culverden Lions Club, the

Community Response

Committee, Four Square,

Stockers, The Red Post,

Farmsource and North

Last Sunday’s opening day

was described as awesome,

with abig crowd appreciating

the fantastic team effort.

Prime land in Hanmer Springs to be sold

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The Ministry of Health is quitting the

southern part of the formerQueenMary

HospitalsiteatHanmer Springs.

It has decided to sell the prime

9.42­hectare property on Amuri Avenue.

Land Information New Zealand, on

behalf of theministry, has told the

Hurunui District Council of its plans.

The council was formally told because

it ownsthe adjoiningland.However,it

had decided in April 2018 it had no

interestinacquiringthe property after

the ministry first signalled it wouldsell it.

The council can submitanintention to

acquire it onlyifthe landisneeded for a

publicworks project.

Ngai Tahu hadfirst refusalonthe

property under the NgaiTahu Claims

Settlement Act 1998.

The site, with acapitalvalue of

$6 million in 2018, includes the

Rutherford ward, whichwas the

administrative hub of the once­renowned

alcohol and drug rehabilitation centre.

It hasbeen in Crownownership since it

was boughtfrom NgaiTahu through the

Kemp Purchase of June 1848.

The northern part of the hospital

property, comprising 5.2 hectares which

includes the historicSoldiers’, Chisholm

and Nurses’blocks, wastransferred to the

council in November2010 after yearsof

lobbying for public ownershipofpart of

the site.

However, the bulkhas remained in

Crown ownership and in limbo, withthe

ministry as its caretaker.

Built in 1916,the Queen Mary Hospital

in the alpine settlementinitially operated

as aconvalescent home for soldiers

injuredduring World War 1, using the

medicalbenefits believed to be obtained

frombathinginthe nearby thermal

waters.

The hospital later became atreatment

centre for those withfunctional nervous

disorders, and lateraninternationally

recognised facility for treating drug and

alcohol dependenciesuntil2003.

Council looks beyond

zone committee

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Acommittee focused on the Hurunui

District being agreat place to live,

where people have acommon goal of

looking after their land and water, is

destined to take over the work of the

Hurunui Waiau Zone Committee.

It is intended that the Hurunui Water

and Land committee will be made up of

people with connections to

organisations, but who have talents to

develop strategies rather than working

for any one group.

They will advocate to remove barriers,

policies and rules that are not working,

and enable the ‘‘doers’’ to get on and

make the Hurunui District agreat place.

Cr Lynda Murchison said at last week’s

council meeting that there would be a

continued relationship with

Environment Canterbury, Ngai

Tuahuriri, and ahost of other

organisations.

Those involved in the committee

would be influencers and strategists.

She said there needed to be free and

frank discussion between parties so the

committee did not unravel.

Its purpose and function would need

to be clearly defined, she said.

Wellness, and other Local Government

Act requirements, would be among the

aims of the committee, ‘‘not resource

management stuff’’, she said.

‘‘We need to find away to pull people

together and come up with asystem that

works for the Hurunui, and we will then

have the opportunity to do great things,’’

she said.

‘‘It will be the role of the committee to

facilitate, make connections, and help

the doers.’’

This was an opportunity to untangle

the past and consider the future,

recognising the effort, time, work and

energy of the previous zone committee.

The council agreed in principle to a

proposed terms of reference, which will

form the basis for discussions with

ECan, and Ngai Tuahuriri.

Aworking party of Mayor Marie Black,

and Crs Murchison, Fiona Harris and

Vince Daly was appointed.

Meantime, the zone committee will

continue to operate as usual.

Committee rejects bid

for new liquor outlet

NEWS

North Canterbury News, December 3, 2020

5

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Abid to establish aThirsty

Liquor bottlestore in Amberley

has failed.

An application by Townill Ltd

for the bottlestoreinthe town’s

business area was declined by

the HurunuiDistrictLicensing

Committee, chaired by Hurunui

MayorMarie Black.

Mrs Black, who sat on the

committee withcouncillor

Michael Ward and former

mayorWinton Dalley, released

the decisionlast Friday. The

trio ruled thatthe impact of a

new off­licenceat86Carters

Road would be more than minor

on the locality.

They also found that granting

the application wouldbe

contrarytothe objectives of the

Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act,

in that it would not minimise

alcohol harm.

The decision was supported

by many local people,with some

suggesting on the North

Canterbury News Facebook

page that there wereenough

liquor outletsinAmberley.

Some hailed it as agood

outcome for the town.

The committee received 93

objections to the application,

finding 56 of them valid under

the act.Concerns centred on the

adverse impactabottle store

wouldhave on the amenity

values of the planned locality,

and the proliferation of alcohol

outletsinAmberley.

Objectors werealso

concerned about thelevelof

alcohol­relatedharm already in

the community, the proposed

days and hours of operation,

and the designand layoutofthe

business.

‘‘Put simply, the objectorsdo

not want anotherbottle store in

their community,’’the decision

says.

‘‘A common theme of

evidence we heard was that

many community­based

activities and services are

conducted in and around the

township,beingagathering

place for localsand forming a

hub for the community.

‘‘Activities and amenities

include, for example,the parks,

the library,the schooland

preschools,the retail stores, the

cafes,the sportsclubsand

community groups,the

churches, and the farmers

market,’’ the committee said.

Its proximity to several

‘‘sensitive sites’’ and other

licensedoutletsalso concerned

objectors, and it was felt

another bottlestore was not

compatiblewith the

pleasantnessand character of

the township.

Some objectors said they had

encountered alcohol­related

harm, including rubbish,

nuisance, alcoholism,damage,

vandalism, motor vehicle

incidents involving alcohol,

consumption of alcohol in parks

and public places, and alcoholrelated

incidents at the local

school, according to the

decision.

‘‘The increasedavailability of

afull range of alcohol products

thatappeals to youth was

concerning. Others expressed

concern that the bottle store

would expose young children to

alcohol and would normalise

alcohol consumption in the

community.

‘‘A large number of objectors

believed Amberley already had

enough retail alcohol outlets,

because there is already abottle

store should the community

wishtoobtainalcohol,

specifically the fuller range of

alcohol products,’’ thedecision

said.

Severalobjectorstoldthe

panel they did not believethe

store would be a‘‘high­end’’

store as suggested by the

applicant,but rather would be

an ordinary discount chain

liquor store.

Partieswho took part in the

proceedings,and who disagree

withthe committee’s decision,

can appealtothe Alcohol

Regulatoryand Licensing

Authority.

Appeals must be lodged

within 10 workingdays of the

dateofthe decision being

notified to the parties involved.

Appeals are dealt with through

Waimakariri district shows ongoing resilience after Covid-19

The Waimakariri district

continues to fare better than

expectedfollowing the impact of

Covid­19.

The September Infometrics

Quarterly EconomicMonitor for

Waimakariri was releasedlast

week.While containingafew

expected declines, it is a

positive report.

This followsOctober’s North

Canterbury Business Opinion

Survey which showed ahigher

levelofbusiness confidence

thanatany other timeinthe

pastthree years. More thana

third of surveyed businesses

reported growth.

EnterpriseNorth Canterbury

business support manager Miles

Dalton sayswhile Covid­19 has

had an impact, the report is

‘‘reassuringly dull’’.

‘‘Thingsaren’t as flash as they

would havebeen without Covid­

19. However,weare in amuch

better place thanexpected,and

doing comparatively betterthan

most,”hesays.

One of the key statistics is

consumer spending in the

district, whichisup9.1 percent

for the September quarter

compared to the sametime last

year.

For the yeartoSeptember,

consumer spending is up 3.3%,

meaning retailers areahead for

the yeardespite the lockdown.

House prices are also rising,

with values appreciating by 5.9%

in the past year. However,

residential and commercial

building consents areboth down

significantly (­17.1% and ­41.2%

respectively).

The numberofjobseekers has

risen by 344 from last year, but

the unemployment rate in

Waimakariri sits at 3.1% —the

sameasSeptember 2019.

Tourismspendingin

Waimakariri isalso slightly

downonlast year–another

expected outcome –but the 4.4%

decline is minimal compared to

­13% for Canterbury and ­16.5%

for New Zealand as awhole.

The district’s growth in gross

domestic product, although

down slightly, was also higher

than both Canterburyand New

Zealand.

Waimakariri’s dairy sectoris

dubbed‘‘a source of strength

through the recession’’ in the

report, withdairyfarmers

expected to reap $199 million

this season, down onlyslightly

from $209m lastyear.

"This is a really

important decision for the

future of your council, we

all know how important

water is for each and

every one of us."

Aword from your CEO, Hamish Dobbie.

The term ‘Three Waters’ (drinking water, waste water and storm

water) has filtered its way into the public realm. Currently, HDC

provides reticulated three waters’ services to many (but not all)

properties in Hurunui. Properties not serviced by HDC make their

own arrangements. Over the last two years, central government

has been pursuing aproposal to amalgamate three waters’

services into new entities separate from local government. The

rationale is largely based oneconomies of scale associated with

larger organisations, increasing compliance required from the new

water regulator (Taumata Aurowai) and socialisation ofcosts

across population density. Government has allocated $761 million

of “COVID-19 stimulus funding” to the water reform programme.

HDC has signed aMemorandum ofUnderstanding (MOU), a‘good

faith agreement’ in return for $7.5 million from the stimulus fund.

Before we respond to any government proposal, there will be full

public consultation in 2021. What doyou want tohappen? It's a

really important decision for the future ofyour council, we all know

how important water isfor each and every one ofus.

The Hurunui District has the second-highest ratio of registered dogs per 10,000 people in New Zealand;

slightly more than 4,000 dogs/10,000 people. Chatham Island Territory has the highest ratio; pproximately

5,600 dogs/10,000 people. Wellington City has the lowest ratio; approximately 500 dogs/10,000 people.

Creative mates ... Bruce Osborn, left, and Pete Hollobon displayed their wood carvings and sculptures at the recent Dunedin Art Show.

Pair carve out aniche market

By TRACEY BINGHAM

Two down­to­earth blokes fromNorth

Canterbury are carving out aniche in the

art worldfrom their Mandeville base in

North Canterbury.

Artisan woodcarvers Pete Hollobon

and Bruce Osborn,who call their

business Kaimahi Toi New Zealand,

exhibited at the DunedinArts Show

recently, bring their carvingand

woodworking skills together to form

beautifuland unique art pieces.

Both originally had alove for native

timbers when they werestill at school,

which remained withthem through their

chosencareer paths in the construction

industry. As friends and neighboursfor

over20years,they have now combined

their skills.

Theymostly use recycledSouth Island

totara sourced mainly fromthe

aftermath of the 2011Christchurch

earthquakes.

New Zealandkauri and swamp kauri

fromNorthland (carbon­datedat1200

years old)also featurestrongly in their

artworks.

Having initially been inspired by

North American sculptureartistSalam

Baker, who Pete sharedtime with while

in Illinois in 2019, theirworks are now

mainly inspired by the nature and

weather of New Zealand, and

Canterbury’senvironment.

Piecesinclude theirnor’ westseries,

the braided river series,and the seismic

squeeze.

Each piece is created mainlybyhand

with the help of hand­held electric power

and air tools,followed by sanding to

createthe shapes.

The sculpturescan be finishedwith

water­resistant sealantsfor increased

durability for outsidedisplayifrequired.

The pair will be exhibiting at the

Mandeville Craft Festival at Swannanoa

on Sunday,December 6from 10am.

Authorities to review tsunami risk zones

By DAVIDHILL

Waimakariri Civil Defence willreview

tsunami evacuation zones after fresh

modelling showed flooding could travel

further inland than previously thought.

EnvironmentCanterbury(ECan)

commissionedGNS Science to model the

impacts of various tsunami scenarios for

NorthPegasusBay, afterwork completed

for Christchurch last year resulted in

larger evacuationzonesfor the city.

The reportshowsthe largesttsunami

threats could affect parts of the Kaiapoi

and Pegasus townships, further inland

than previous modelling indicated.

Waimakariri DistrictCouncil

emergency management adviser Brennan

Wiremu welcomes the modelling, which

will helpthe districtbebetter prepared.

‘‘It was really important to have afull

picture of how it could affect our district

beforemakingany changes.We’re now

able to make decisions based on the latest

and mostaccurate science available.’’

Waimakariri Civil Defence is working

withECan, neighbouring councils and

emergency services to draw up new

tsunami evacuation zones and response

plans, Brennan says. It is hoped the new

zones will be ready early in the New Year

and will be accompanied by apublic

education campaign.

‘‘While it’s too early to say exactly what

the new zones will look like, it’s likely to

change fromfour distinct zones centred

on our beach communities to alarger

rectangle that extends the lengthofthe

coast,’’ he says.

After­hours doctors in Rangiora are a

step closer to becoming areality.

Newly appointed Health Minister

Andrew Little approved the lease of

Canterbury District Health Board land

to enable after­hours healthcare at the

Rangiora Health Hub.

He gave the nod during aZoom

meeting with Waimakariri Mayor Dan

Gordon last week.

“After­hours provision is amatter

important to our community and a

matter Ihave been involved in

advocating for over anumber of

years,” Mr Gordon says.

“The minister approving this lease

is excellent news.’’

Mr Gordon said he looked forward to

continuing to work with the board to

see after­hours healthcare available

at the Rangiora Health Hub in the

near future. ‘‘It’s apriority for me and

the community.”

The board had been awaiting

approval from the minister to lease

the land to aprivately owned GP

practice to enable the extension of

hours.

Part of the agreement is that the GP

practice provides extended hours and

is open seven days aweek.

Waimakariri MP Matt Doocey has

been lobbying for after­hours health

care in North Canterbury and says the

announcement is awin for the

community.

“This is an exciting milestone for

our residents and Iwant to

acknowledge our community who

worked together to bring this over the

line.’’

Mr Doocey acknowledged Sandi

McLean for her ‘‘tireless’’ efforts in

collecting signatures for apetition to

the board, community advocate Paula

Thackwell and former board planning

and funding general manager Carolyn

Gullery.

“We can’t have aconversation about

after­hours health care without

acknowledging Paula Thackwell for

her energy and persistence in raising

this as an issue of importance for our

residents.’’

Following the recent loss of

leadership within the board, Mr

Doocey met with acting chief

executive Andrew Brant in person to

ensure timeframes and delivery of the

after­hours facility would remain a

priority.

‘‘I was reassured that he was

keeping after­hours on track,’’ Mr

Doocey said.

Challenging conditions ... Summer pastures present challengesfor dairy cows.

Astrategy to ‘stop

It is wellknownthat summer pasture­growing conditions present achallengefor those

also result in aloss of pregnancies or triggeranexcessive drop in the lactation curve.

Recently,aclient who was doing 1.91kg of milk solids per cow per day said to me: ‘‘Last

year we let cows drop production and fed them only grasstosave on feed costs.’’

The customermentioned that the cows dropped milk productionto1.60kgMS/cow/day.

Using apayout of $6 per kilogram of milk solids and assuming we need to feed 150 grams

Summernutrition facts

Acow’s daily intake is reduced in summerpartly because of the increasing neutral

detergent fibre(NDF)content in the pasture. Higher pasture NDF (reproductive pasture

quality) fills up the rumen faster and the cowwill not get

the required daily nutrient intake neededfor milk

production.

Also, protein levelsinsummer pasturedrop below the

protein requirementsofcows for maintenance and milk

production. Rumen degradable protein(RDP)

supplementation is thereforehighlyrecommendedto

compensatefor thelack of protein in pasturesand in the

overall diet.

OPTISYNC is the most effective solution to fill thisgap

when compared with otherRDP protein supplements.

Why? BecauseOPTISYNC is aspecifically produced slow

release RDP source which is consistent batch to batch.

OPTISYNC has an NDF valueof0,which means it takes

up lessspaceand does not replaceother feeds in the

rumen.

The show must go on for the North

Canterbury Kapa Haka Celebration,

which keeps growing.

Tuahiwi School overcame Covid­19

uncertainty and venuerestrictionsto

pull off another big two­day celebration

of Maori culture at the Ohoka Community

Hall on Monday and Tuesday.

PrincipalMelanie Taite­Pitama said

around36school groups, including five

schools from Christchurch taking part for

the firsttime, performed in front of more

than 1500 whanau and friends.

It is believed to be the largest schools

event in North Canterbury, which means

the organisersare looking forward to

Stadium Waimakaririopeningnext year.

‘‘There’sabit of awaiting list for us

now,’’MsTaite­Pitamasays.

Last Monday night’s show was sold out

after the first coupleofweeks,leaving

some people disappointed at being

unabletoattend.

‘‘We’ll be really happy in North

Canterbury when the stadium is up and

running.

‘‘We had to have it abit later thisyear,

because Covid­19 has caused some

disruption to our school programmes,’’

she said.

But localschools got behind the event,

with several pupils taking time out from

school campthis week to perform.

With Maori being the youngest and

fastest growingdemographic in New

Zealand,MsTaite­Pitama said the

celebrationplayed an important role in

allowing Maori studentstoexpress

themselves,and in raising awareness

amongthe wider population.

‘‘That can only be apositive for all of

us. We want to teachpeopleabout who

we are as Maori, the richness that we can

bringtopeople’s lives.’’

The Tuahiwi School whanauwas busy

feeding more than 1500visitorsover the

two days to raise funds for the school,

It was made possible thanks to Hellers

The perfect time to create herb-inspired gifts

Fragrant herbs from the garden providethe basis for several

greathome-grown gifts, writes Marilyn Wightman.

These three herbal craft ideas

are easily madebygardeners.

Getting children to help both

encourages their appreciation

of the herb gardenand extends

their skills.

Herbal Posy

Aposy made and given at

Christmas is apersonalised

gesture of friendship and

appreciation.

Harvest flowersand foliage

fromthe garden and remember

thatany plantthat has a

fragrance is aherb. Pick

perfumedflowersand leaves.

Smaller­sized flowersare best

for ahand­held posy, but avoid

daisiesasthesewilt quickly.

Flowers on stalksof20to

30cmare good. Choose:

lavender, marjoram, sage, clove

pinks (carnations),violets; and

savoury and fragrant foliage

suchasrosemary, myrtle,

thyme, santolina, scented

pelargoniumand wormwood.

To make aherbal posy, strip

and remove the lower foliageoff

the picked herbs to revealthe

stalks. Choose arose or larger

flower for the centre, then place

around thisseveral smaller

flowers. Using ametre­long

piece of woolorstring,wrap this

to hold and securethe

arrangement in placeasyou

progressivelyadd flowersand

fragrant leaves around the

centrepiece.Aposy about the

size of asauceristhe ideal size.

Finish it witharing of large

leaves –violet and scented

pelargonium work well. Tie off

the woolorstring and cut the

stemsevenly to make agoodsizedhand­hold.Placeitina

glassorwater to keep it fresh.

When it comes time to giftit,

drainand wrap the hand­hold

with Christmas paper.

Potpourri

Process herbs from the

garden to provide natural

products thatsweeten the air

and provide fragrance in the

home.

Aquantity of dried petals,

flowers and leavescan be mixed

together. This is an oldfashioned

way of creating sweet

air freshenersfor the house.

To makepot pourri, on adry

day, preferably in the morning,

harvest herbalmaterial by

trimming the planttoagood

shape. Spreadthe cuttings on

cleannewspaper or tie it into a

bunchand hang to dry. After 10

days,strip the leaves and

flowers off the stalks and store

in lidded jars or large plastic

containers. Label each with the

variety and date.Asageneral

rule,dried herbs can be usedup

to ayear afterharvest.

For gifting, pot pourri can be

placed in any suitable

container;perhaps something

from an op shop.

Perfect gift ... Home­made herb salt is aChristmas winner.

Herb salt

Combine dried culinary herbs

with table salt to make a

flavoursome mix to use in food

dishes. Herb saltcan be used in

salsas, dips, pesto, pasta,

stuffing, or just as acondiment

to add piquancytoameal.

To make herbal salt, hand

grind one part herbs to three

parts salt. Akitchen whiz will

powder the mix if preferred.

One herb or amix of flavours

works well. Packageinasmall

jar or container.

To encourageaperson

unfamiliar withusingherbs for

flavouring, include afavourite

recipe with the herb salt.

As apractical gift, consider

giving herb plantsfor the

garden.The recipient can start

their own adventure in growing

and experiencing herbs.

SUMMER GARDENING

North Canterbury News, December 3, 2020

Ahearty garden is aChristmas drawcard

It’s time to get your garden spaces

ready for summer entertaining,

writes Rachel Vogan.

Fill the gardens with laughter this

month and embrace all your garden has

to offer you and your loved ones. Enjoy

the best of both worlds by using your

patio, lawn or deck as extra entertaining

space.

Investing wisely in outdoor furniture,

shade sails and umbrellas will pay

dividends when it comes to comfort and

practicality in the hottest months.

For patio tubs and planters, choose

larger urns and containers to use as

focal points, rather than amyriad of

smaller pots, which tend to dry out

faster.

When it comes to watering, do it at the

start or the end of the day, rather than

the middle of the day; your plants will

thank you.

Sunflowers

These magical happy­go­lucky flowers

just ooze happiness and joy. Being easy

to grow from seed, they are ideal

planting projects for children and all

members of the family.

Sow them where you want them to

grow. For the tall ones, place them near

the back of the garden, away from

blustery winds.

From sowing to flower takes about

three months. Full sun is essential and

stakes for the taller types will keep them

standing tall.

Vegetables

New­season potatoes should be on the

menu this month. If you don’t want to dig

up the entire plant, just tickle afew from

under the soil. To store new potatoes,

leave alittle soil on them, and cover

them with adamp towel or sack to

prevent them drying out.

This month is your last chance to get

sweet corn seedlings in the ground.

Plant out new batches of spring onions

and beetroot. Sow seeds of Brussels

Summer challenge ... Lawn clippings can

be blended in to the compost heap, or left

on the lawn to feed the soil.

sprouts in acool part of the garden, with

the aim of having them ready to plant

out in the new year. Remember, these

are along­term crop, and in the ground

for about six months.

Roses

With the first flush of blooms nearly

finished, it is time to do the first lot of

deadheading. Removing the spent

flowers will encourage new stems to

appear sooner. Asprinkle of rose

fertiliser is agood idea, as well as a

layer of mulch. Water roses deeply a

couple of times aweek, aiming not to

water the foliage, just the soil. This

helps prevent black spot and mildew

issues.

Berries and currants

These are plumping up and becoming

juicier by the day. For the best­tasting

berries, pick them as close to eating as

possible.

Allow them to fully ripen on the plants

and avoid putting them in the fridge

unless you have to. Cold berries are

never as sweet as room temperature

ones. Protect ripening fruit by covering

with nets.

Grass clippings

What to do with grass piles can be a

challenge.

Options are to blend them in to the

compost heap, along with other layers of

organic matter. However, avoid having

thick layers of just clippings as they take

along time to break down.

Thin layers can be used as alight

mulch around trees and shrubs; again

don’t go too thick, ideally no more than

5cm. Chooks enjoy them, too.

If lawn clippings are quite short they

can be left on the lawn as they will

quickly melt down into the soil below

the grass.

Plums andcherries

Early varieties will be fruiting now,

and others won’t be far behind. Keep an

eye out for aphids and greenfly, which

are drawn to the fresh new foliage.

Prune out any unwanted new branches

and stems to aid in the fruit ripening.

Add athick layer of mulch around the

base of the trees to keep the soil cooler

and retain moisture over the hottest

months, as well as keep weeds at bay.

Diverse works showcased

By SHELLEY TOPP

The Arts in Oxford Galleryisending

the year on ahigh note, showcasing

the diversework of 24 artists.

The SummerShow Community of

Creatives is acelebration of the

exhibition’s mantra, ‘‘we all helpone

another’’ —aconceptportrayed in

DavidDawon Choi’s Inhabitants of

the Nest.

The young award­winning

Korean­born artist,who now lives in

Christchurch, was borndeaf and

severelysightimpaired.Hebegan

drawing at the age of three to convey

his thoughts and feelings.

Aftermoving to New Zealand with

his familywhen aged nine, David

became inspiredbyMaori culture

and the naturalworld around him to

create the intricate and detailed

worksfor which he has become wellknown.

The deaf­blind artist uses aunique

technique for drawinghis work,

utilising aclosed­circuit television

monitor to see what he is doing.

David’s artworkwas described as

‘‘very special’’ by Waimakariri

District Mayor Dan Gordon, who was

aguest speaker at the official

exhibition opening in Oxfordlast

Saturday.

Mr Gordon praised the gallery and

the volunteers who run it.

‘‘This gallery is absolutely

outstanding,’’ he said.‘‘It is an

important part of thiscommunity

because it is community driven and

has greatleaderswith vision.’’

The gallery’s board of trustees

chairwoman, Areta Wilkinson, also

thanked the volunteers for their

hard work during adifficult year

hamperedbyCovid­19 restrictions.

Telling astory... English­born artistPaul Smith, who lives in Kaiapoi,with his

acrylic diptych, NeverEndingStory,ondisplay in the exhibition.

‘‘We should be really proud that

the gallery is stillhere,’’ she said.

Its patron, Christchurch artist

PhilipTrusttum, said the gallery had

experiencedhighsand lows since it

was established in2010.

‘‘To still be going is pretty good

really.Having agalleryiseasy.

Having to run it, that is thekiller,’’he

said.

Mayor pushes for

local arts strategy

By DAVID HILL

The growth of the artsin

North Canterbury means

the timeisright to

develop an artsstrategy,

Waimakariri MayorDan

Gordon says.

as theforemostart event

in the district, while the

ArtsinOxford Gallery and

Rangiora’s Chamber

Gallery bothplaytheir

partinsupporting a

burgeoning arts

community,among other

initiativesand

organisations.

The ideafor an arts

strategygrewout of a

conversationwith

Kaiapoi­Tuahiwi

Community Board deputy

chairwomanand arts

advocateJackie Watson,

Mr Gordon says.

‘‘She’sinvolvedinalot

of things in the

community, so shewill be

akey partofwhat

The council already has

an artinpublic places

ideal time to support the

artscommunityfurther.

‘‘I’m keentopull

together allthe

organisationsinvolved in

the artstocomeupwith

an overridingstrategy for

us into the future,’’Mr

Gordon says.

‘‘Andwe’re looking at

having an arts portfolioon

thecouncil.’’

Mr Gordon studied art

history at university and

haslong been an advocate

of thearts in thedistrict.

‘‘I’ve beeninvolved in a

number of initiatives such

as establishingthe Arts in

OxfordGalleryand the

Kaiapoi Art Expo.

‘‘Theartsare avery a

strong area of interest to

me.’’

TheKaiapoi ArtExpo

conversation between

neighbours in Ohoka,he

said.

‘‘It’s an ideathat

originated when Iwas

livinginOhoka—Jackie

Watson was my

neighbour.

‘‘We encouraged others

to getinvolved and it went

from beingsomething that

Revamp part of pool’slong history

By SHELLEY TOPP

Fernside School’s 120­year­old

swimmingpool hasreopened

after an extensive, $150,000

upgrade.

The original‘‘swimming bath’’

cost£90 and openedonelection

day in 1899. It didn’thave a

reliable water supply until1953

whenthe school committee

decided, under pressure from

the HealthDepartment, to sink

awelltoprovideabetter flow.

After 15.24mofpipe was

driven into a5.4mwellwithout

muchwater flow, twoplugsof

gelignitewere exploded at the

bottom.

‘‘This was justwhatwas

neededand aflow exceeding

1500 gallons (5678 litres)per

hour wasfound,’’ said the

school’s principal,DavidTaylor,

reading fromthe school’s150

Year jubileebook during the

officialpoolreopening

ceremonylast Friday in the

Fernside Hall, nexttothe

school.

Many older residents joke that

it wasalot easier to learnto

swim backintheirday as they

hadsimplytofollow theactions

of thefrogs,eels,and the many

Since1955,the facility has

been maintainedbythe

FernsideSwimming Club in

conjunction with theschool

committee.

Last year,asmallfundraising

group of parents, including

Sarah Clenshaw,Vicky Edwards

andLizzy Anderson, working

with assistant principalAndrew

upgraded.

‘‘Oneyeardownthe track the

Andrew says. ‘‘Wenow havea

us to have 56 children swimming

at anyone timeand anew

flow into thepool.’’

Other improvementsinclude

anew PVCliner, two newpool

help from MarkLarsen,owner

of Larsen’s Art NSigns Studio in

Mayor highlights

transport concerns

By DAVID HILL

WaimakaririMayor Dan Gordonhas

been goinginto bat for the district’s

transport woes.

Mr Gordon wroteto the New

Zealand TransportAgencylast week

to express the district’s frustrations

that new speed limits on State

Highway 1betweenLineside Road

and Waikuku ignored concernsraised

by the Woodend­SeftonCommunity

Board.

The letter followedapresentation

the mayor gave to the Christchurch

City Council earlylast month in

support of Cranford Street

improvements in the city, in response

to opposition fromthe Papanui­Innes

Community Boardand localresidents.

‘‘As an adjoiningRoad Controlling

Authority, we would have anticipated

amore proactive two­wayengagement

with us as you finalisedyour

considerations over these speedlimit

changes, rather thannotification once

decisionshad been made,’’MrGordon

said in his letterto thetransport

agency’s director regional

relationships in the SouthIsland,Jim

Harland.

The concerns relate to thespeed

limit at the Ashley Riverbridge

remaining at 100kmh,the retentionof

the 70kmhlimit at the Pegasus

roundabout, and the proximity of the

speed­limit changetothe Rangiora­

Woodend and WoodendBeach roads.

‘‘With the upcoming connectionof

the collector road through

Ravenswood,wehave serious

concerns aboutthe lack ofasafe

❛We would have

anticipated amore proactive

two­way engagement with

us.❜

—Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon

crossing overSH1 for pedestrians and

cyclists at this point,’’ Mr Gordon said.

The mayor calledonthe agencyto

engage further with the community.

The Papanui­Innes Community

Board hadrecommendedthe city

council support aproposal to

maintain the existing current roading

alignment along Cranford Street,

Innes Road and BerwickStreet.

But this would havegone against

Christchurch northern corridor

planning ‘‘whichhas been anticipated

for more than adecade as part of the

wider land­use and transportplanning

for Greater Christchurch’’, Mr Gordon

saidinhis presentation.

‘‘When we are makingthe

investment through the ‘park and ride’

withEnvironmentCanterbury for the

express buses,it wouldhave been

disappointing if the city council could

not havemade it apriority to ease

congestionduring peaktimes,’’ he

said, reflecting on his presentation.

Mr Gordon wasrelieved to learnlast

week that the city council had agreed

to backthe proposed realignment,

which will help the express buses

fromRangiora and Kaiapoi, due to be

introducedby Environment

Canterbury in the New Year.

Masks to be money-makers

By DAVID HILL

Face masks have becomeafashion

accessoryinthe new Covid­19

environment—and now you can

buy them as autographed

memorabilia.

The Rangiora Lions Club has

secured someframedface masks

signed by PrimeMinister Jacinda

Ardern and the Director­General

of Health,DrAshleyBloomfield.

The masks are being auctioned

on TradeMetoraise funds for

BlindLow VisionNZ.

Project co­ordinator Quentin De

Hamelsaid he wanted to do

something positive to mark what

has been an extraordinary year.

“I felt aface mask was agood

symbolfor the year and the 1pm

briefings with the prime minister

and Dr Ashley Bloomfield will

remainasakey memory of 2020.

“I was delightedthat both

Jacinda and Ashley chose to

support our fundraiser.”

Dr Bloomfield has signed with

his familiar openingline from his

daily 1pm pressbriefings, ‘‘Kia ora,

koutoukatoa’’ (or greetings, hello

to you all),while Ms Ardern used

her catchphrase,‘‘bekind’’.

“What aterrific Christmas

present for someone who has

everything —something really

special that you can pass on to your

grandchildren,” Mr De Hamel says.

“I think the face mask has

becomeiconic with what has been

2020. The face mask has literally

been the face of the pandemic.’’

Rangiora Lions presidentTini

Lawry was excited when the idea

came forward in abrainstorming

evening.

“I love the initiativeQuentinhas

shown and the club is 100 percent

supportive of this project.

‘‘Helping the blind is one of the

key focus areas for Lions clubs

worldwide, and it would be great to

see agood amount raisedfor Blind

Top lambs require top rams

By DAVID HILL

North Canterbury rams are the secret to

breeding mint­condition lambs,

according to Marlborough farmers Ali

and Stu Campbell.

The Marlborough father­and­son duo

paid tribute to ram breeders Chris and

Jane Earl, of Scargill in North

Canterbury, after being announced as

the winners of the Canterbury A&P

Association mint lamb competition on

Friday.

“It’s nice to give some recognition to

Marlborough, but we couldn’t do it

without our ram breeder,” Stu Campbell

said.

“Chris and Jane look after us well and

we appreciate what they do for us. We’ve

been buying their rams for the last six

years.

“We are on the same page for what

they’re breeding and what we want to

achieve.”

The Campbells first entered the mint

lamb competition last year, winning the

the tenderness class, but the lamb was

“all fat” when it came to overall

honours, Stu Campbell said.

This year they entered two lambs,

being placed first equal in the 14.6kg to

19.9kg class and winning the 20kg to

24.9kg class.

The Campbells have 117ha at Spring

Creek, near Seddon, and 400ha at

Awatere Valley, running amixed sheep

farm with 1400 ewes and avineyard.

“They work in well together,” Stu

Campbell said.

“For us, the sheep are the leaf

pluckers to open up the fruit and then

once we’ve harvested the grapes you’ve

got that platform to graze.”

Ashburton farmers Paul and Kay

Gardner, who have won the mint lamb

competition three times, won the new

ram breeders' class.

The ram breeders’ class was

introduced this year as aseparate

competition to stud breeders and to

open up the mint lamb competition for

commercial farmers.

New side tops table

after beating Ohoka

Leeston­Southbridge jumped to the top of

the countrycricket standings with a

comprehensive eight­wicket demolition of

Ohoka on Saturday.

The combined side’svictory sees it

leapfrogWeedons, which suffered ahefty

79­run loss to Darfield, and lead the CRV

Ambreed Country PremierOne Day

2020/21competition.

At LeestonPark, the home side chose to

bowl firstand immediately rolledthrough

Ohoka’s top order.

Sam Chamberlain and Tom Burt did the

damage at the top,hitting goodareas and

grabbing four wickets between them.

Burt bowledaclosetounplayable

delivery to remove the dangerous Will

Hamilton.

But it was atotal team bowlingand

fieldingeffort,creatingtwo run outs,

which resultedinthe dismissalofan

Ohoka side missing afew key players to

injury.The side was all out for apaltry 93

in 35 overs.

Only Harry Fitzpatrick offeredany

resistance and was left stranded on 40 not

out off 86 balls.

After losing RupertYoung for aduck in

the first over after apeach from Austin

Hamilton, Leeston­Southbridge knocked

off the win inside15overs, with

Canterbury Country star Harry

Chamberlain smashing 45 off 31 balls, and

Country development coachesToby Doyle

(15 not out) and formerDutch

international Tim Gruijters (20 not out)

finishing the job.

Big Darfieldwin

Darfield’spowerfultop­order set up a

commanding victory to knock Weedons off

the top perch on its home soil.

Liam Foulkes (26 runs off 52 balls) and

Nick Jenkins(33 off 45) put on a63­run

opening stand, before Jesse Frew (73 off

87) and Canterbury Kings star Henry

Shipley(52 off 56) put on 109 for the third

wicket and set up afine first inningstotal

of 222/6 in the side’sallotted 45 overs.

Weedons’ reply stuttered to17/2, with

all­rounder Frew again in the action to

remove the openers, and the run chase

never recovered.

James Richardsagain showed his class,

top­scoring with an unbeaten 59, but aside

from keeper­batsmanJames Watson (26),

he got little help and the side was all out

for 143 in the 39th over.

Southbrook defaults

Crisis­hit Southbrook,winless since the

opening roundback on October 3,

defaulted against fellow­strugglers

Lincoln after being unable to find enough

What’s happening in your

community…

Tsunami Modelling Leads toReview of

Evacuation Zones

Waimakariri Civil Defence will review tsunami

evacuation zones following the completion of

modelling that shows in worse-case scenarios,

flooding could travel further inland than

previously thought.

Environment Canterbury (ECan) commissioned

GNS Science to model the impacts of various

tsunami scenarios for North Pegasus Bay, aer

work completed for Christchurch last year resulted

in larger evacuation zones for the city.

The report shows the largest tsunami threats could

affect areas of the District that are outside of the

current evacuation zones, including parts of the

Kaiapoi and Pegasus townships.

Waimakariri District Emergency Management

Advisor, Brennan Wiremu is welcoming the

modelling and says it will help the District be

better prepared for tsunami risks.

“It was really important to have afull picture of

how itcould affect our District before making any

changes,” says Brennan. “We’re now able to make

decisions based on the latest and most accurate

science available.”

Brennan says they’re planning to have the new

zones ready early in the New Year and they’ll be

accompanied by alarge public education campaign

for the community.

Modelling shows that the largest tsunami scenario

that could affect the Waimakariri coast would be a

large, rare tsunami from South America in which the

District would have more than 12hours of warning.

Rangiora Health Hub

During arecent meeting between Waimakariri

District Council Mayor Dan Gordon and Health

Minister Andrew Little, the minister approved the

lease of Canterbury District Health Board (CDHB)

land to enable aer-hours healthcare at the

Rangiora Health Hub.

CDHB have been awaiting approval from the

minister to lease the land to aprivately owned

GP practice to enable the extension of hours. Part

of the agreement is that they will provide for

extended hours and be open seven days aweek.

Woodend School Traffic Signals

Making it safer for Woodend School students

to cross SH1 is now one step closer with work

on installing traffic signals outside the school

beginning last week.

Mayor Dan Gordon and Woodend School Principal

Adrienne Simpson were there to celebrate the start

of work and try out the temporary crossing.

The original crossing point has been withdrawn

and atemporary crossing has been put in place

until the traffic signals are operational ahead of

the start of the new school year. Please note,

travel speed through the area will be reduced to

30km/h while the work is ongoing. Please take

extra care and follow the signs.

Anew record was set in an otherwise challengingday

of selling at the Canterbury A&P Association elite ram

Blenheim farmer Christina Jordantopped the sale,

pickingupanew Canterbury A&P Associationrecord

of $17,000for her Southdownram hogget, sold to

The record beat three sales of $16,000paid in recent

years, twice by Oxford farmerDave Gilliespie,with

one of those occasionsbeing in partnershipwith

Omihi farmer PhilWilliams to buy aram hoggetoff Ms

Jordan seven yearsago.

Aregular at the Canterbury A&P Association ram

rams in recent years.

Carrfields studstock agentCallumDunnett saidMs

Jordan’s ram hogget was “a magnificent animal, as

good aram as you’ll ever see”.

Stock agentsreported amixedresultoverall.

“It’s been patchy,”PGG Wrightson livestock

genetics auctioneerJohn McKonesaid. While the

Suffolksheep had agood sale, other breedsstruggled.

The low woolprice andlower ewe numbers were

having an impact, and several stud breederswere now

hostingtheirown on­farm ram sales, he said.

The day's secondhighest price was $10,000paid for
