Auckland<br />

buyer for<br />

complex<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

The Brackenfields shoppingprecinct in<br />

Amberley has beensold to an Auckland<br />

property investor.<br />

The buyer is described as aseasoned<br />

property investor who has asignificant<br />

retailand supermarketportfolio.<br />

Tim Rookes,the managingdirector of<br />

real estate firm CBRE Christchurch,<br />

which marketed the centre, said the<br />

buyer is aspecialistproperty owner<br />

and developer. He takesownershipin<br />

April.<br />

‘‘The sale is very positive for the<br />

centre,’’ Mr Rookes says.<br />

The retailmarket was challengingat<br />

the moment, but the new ownerhad<br />

some great ideas, he said.<br />

‘‘He is workingwith the current<br />

ownersoninitiatives and ideas.’’<br />

The shopping centre—the land and<br />

buildingsonly —includes aCountdown<br />

supermarket as the anchortenant, as<br />

well as retailstores. It was offered for<br />

sale by deadline private treaty.<br />

The lettable area on the 27,021 square<br />

metre site is 5790sqm.<br />

The centrefronts on to Carters Road<br />

(StateHighway1)through the town<br />

centre. There is also access off<br />

Amberley Beach Road.<br />

When the property went on the<br />

market, Mr Rookes said there had been<br />

unprecedented results in commercial<br />

sales this year.Therehad been aspike<br />

in owner­occupier enquiry, fuelled by<br />

low interest rates.<br />

He had anticipated good national<br />

interest in Brackenfields, as<br />

supermarket­anchored investments<br />

were seldom availablefor purchase.<br />

The centreopened in May 2014,with<br />

acore group of abouthalf adozen retail<br />

outlets joiningCountdown.<br />

Alife of adrenaline and adventure<br />

Nick Latz’sfamily says the impact The<br />

Champion Centre had on his life is<br />

immeasurable.<br />

Nick, aged 39, hasDown syndrome.<br />

His younger sister, Annabelle, will run<br />

the Tarawera 100 miler Ultramarathon<br />

in Rotorua in February to raise funds to<br />

help fill the significantfinancial gap the<br />

centre must make up everyyear.<br />

Each year, more than 200 pre­school<br />

children with significant disabilities rely<br />

on the critical early intervention work by<br />

The Champion CentreinChristchurch.<br />

The centre gets 78 percent of its<br />

fundingfrom the governmentand relies<br />

on grantsand fundraisers for the rest.<br />

Unable to accesssome traditional<br />

fundingstreams because of Covid­19, the<br />

organisation is this year fighting to make<br />

up a$600,000 shortfall.<br />

Annabelle remembers her brother<br />

attending thecentreand knows firsthand<br />

how muchthe early intervention<br />

therapyhelped him to lead afull and<br />

independent life.<br />

‘‘It’s aprivilege to run ultramarathons,<br />

andaneven bigger privilege to have Nick<br />

as my big brother,and have this<br />

opportunity to raisemoney for these<br />

youngsterswho arestartingontheir very<br />

special journey,’’ Annabellesays.<br />

Conqueringpersonal challenges<br />

seems to run throughthe veins of the<br />

Latz family.<br />

Nick started skiing at theage of eight<br />

under the wing of Skiing for the<br />

Disabled, through which he spends<br />

almost every Saturday in winter up on<br />

the slopestraining at Mount Hutt.<br />

In 2013, Nick won abronze medalin<br />

the Alpine Skiing IntermediateGiant<br />

Slalom at the 10th Special Olympics<br />

World Winter Games in South Korea.<br />

Nick’sparents,Kate and Peter Latz,<br />

saythe Champion Centreliterally saved<br />

them after Nick was born.<br />

‘‘From those initial feelings of being<br />

completely at aloss,wewere reassured<br />

within hours of Nick’s birththat not only<br />

was help at hand,but that there was far<br />

more that was normal about our baby<br />

than not normal, and we should treat him<br />

Challenge ahead ... Nick Latz with his sister, Annabelle, who is running an<br />

as the precious baby boy that he was.’’<br />

He said running all three<br />

events over one weekend<br />

encouraged people to stay<br />

longer and do more.<br />

‘‘The visitors loved getting a<br />

chance to visitprivate<br />

gardensand talk to the<br />

owners,and learn from them.<br />

The owners loved people<br />

oohing and aahing overtheir<br />

gardens.’’<br />

It was the second year for<br />

the Hanmer SpringsFete.<br />

Organiser Catherine<br />

Batterson said the fetewas a<br />

great boostfor site owners<br />

enduredatough year.<br />

It has been no picnic for Ted, who has been<br />

found lost and alone on the Rakahuri Trail at<br />

the Ashley River.<br />

He is now in the safe hands of the police, who<br />

are anxious to get him home for Christmas.<br />

Ted is no lightweight and stands about a<br />

metre tall.<br />

He will remain hanging out with the local<br />

constabulary while efforts continue to find his<br />

owner.<br />

his rightful owner.<br />

Visitor numbers through<br />

the gates totalled 3100,<br />

compared with 2000 last year.<br />

‘‘We had amazingfeedback<br />

from lastyear, so Ithink it was<br />

acombination of that success,<br />

and the pandemic,which<br />

boosted visitornumbers by<br />

1100 on last year.’’<br />

Ms Batterson said many<br />

visitors attendedthe fete<br />

because they wantedto<br />

support local businesses.<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

There is alittle bit of magic in<br />

Culverden’s Rutherford<br />

Afairyland awaits visitors,<br />

with 34 fairy doors now<br />

gracing the area.<br />

The tiny doors, which<br />

proved ahit with many<br />

children on Sunday, are<br />

thanks to an initiative by the<br />

Culverden Playcentre,<br />

supported by playcentre<br />

families, local businesses and<br />

organisations.<br />

The magical world of<br />

fairyland was introduced to<br />

the playcentre during atrip<br />

to Hanmer Springs, where<br />

fairy doors in the forest<br />

captivated their little<br />

charges.<br />

Culverden playcentre mum<br />

Stacey Ginders organised the<br />

doors, using ajigsaw to<br />

produce some interesting<br />

shapes from designs<br />

submitted by families.<br />

Kathryn Langford finished<br />

the doors, using her eye for<br />

detail in painting them.<br />

There are traditional<br />

Filipino homes, gumboots,<br />

and farm animals, and an<br />

important door thanking<br />

sponsors. They include the<br />

Culverden Community<br />

Committee, which funded the<br />

Prime land in Hanmer Springs to be sold<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

The Ministry of Health is quitting the<br />

southern part of the formerQueenMary<br />

HospitalsiteatHanmer Springs.<br />

It has decided to sell the prime<br />

9.42­hectare property on Amuri Avenue.<br />

Land Information New Zealand, on<br />

behalf of theministry, has told the<br />

Hurunui District Council of its plans.<br />

The council was formally told because<br />

it ownsthe adjoiningland.However,it<br />

had decided in April 2018 it had no<br />

interestinacquiringthe property after<br />

the ministry first signalled it wouldsell it.<br />

The council can submitanintention to<br />

acquire it onlyifthe landisneeded for a<br />

publicworks project.<br />

Ngai Tahu hadfirst refusalonthe<br />

property under the NgaiTahu Claims<br />

Settlement Act 1998.<br />

The site, with acapitalvalue of<br />

$6 million in 2018, includes the<br />

Rutherford ward, whichwas the<br />

administrative hub of the once­renowned<br />

alcohol and drug rehabilitation centre.<br />

It hasbeen in Crownownership since it<br />

was boughtfrom NgaiTahu through the<br />

Kemp Purchase of June 1848.<br />

The northern part of the hospital<br />

property, comprising 5.2 hectares which<br />

includes the historicSoldiers’, Chisholm<br />

and Nurses’blocks, wastransferred to the<br />

council in November2010 after yearsof<br />

lobbying for public ownershipofpart of<br />

the site.<br />

However, the bulkhas remained in<br />

Crown ownership and in limbo, withthe<br />

ministry as its caretaker.<br />

as aconvalescent home for soldiers<br />

Council looks beyond<br />

zone committee<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Acommittee focused on the Hurunui<br />

District being agreat place to live,<br />

where people have acommon goal of<br />

looking after their land and water, is<br />

destined to take over the work of the<br />

Hurunui Waiau Zone Committee.<br />

It is intended that the Hurunui Water<br />

and Land committee will be made up of<br />

people with connections to<br />

organisations, but who have talents to<br />

develop strategies rather than working<br />

for any one group.<br />

They will advocate to remove barriers,<br />

policies and rules that are not working,<br />

and enable the ‘‘doers’’ to get on and<br />

make the Hurunui District agreat place.<br />

Cr Lynda Murchison said at last week’s<br />

council meeting that there would be a<br />

continued relationship with<br />

Environment <strong>Canterbury</strong>, Ngai<br />

Tuahuriri, and ahost of other<br />

organisations.<br />

Those involved in the committee<br />

would be influencers and strategists.<br />

She said there needed to be free and<br />

frank discussion between parties so the<br />

committee did not unravel.<br />

Its purpose and function would need<br />

to be clearly defined, she said.<br />

Wellness, and other Local Government<br />

Act requirements, would be among the<br />

aims of the committee, ‘‘not resource<br />

management stuff’’, she said.<br />

‘‘We need to find away to pull people<br />

together and come up with asystem that<br />

works for the Hurunui, and we will then<br />

have the opportunity to do great things,’’<br />

she said.<br />

‘‘It will be the role of the committee to<br />

facilitate, make connections, and help<br />

the doers.’’<br />

This was an opportunity to untangle<br />

the past and consider the future,<br />

recognising the effort, time, work and<br />

energy of the previous zone committee.<br />

The council agreed in principle to a<br />

proposed terms of reference, which will<br />

form the basis for discussions with<br />

ECan, and Ngai Tuahuriri.<br />

Aworking party of Mayor Marie Black,<br />

and Crs Murchison, Fiona Harris and<br />

Vince Daly was appointed.<br />

Meantime, the zone committee will<br />

continue to operate as usual.<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Thomas the tank engineisonaspecial<br />

help of <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> children.<br />

constructing.<br />

‘‘I sawapictureinanadvertisementin<br />

aUKmagazine and decided Ineeded one,<br />

but Icouldn’t find one anywhere,soI’ve<br />

made up my own version.<br />

‘‘It’s taken alot of hours to put it<br />

together, but it’s all worthit.’’<br />

The train tree gave Mr Linnellthe idea<br />

of decoratingthe clubroomsand the main<br />

displays with Christmas lights and<br />

decorations.<br />

‘‘Andthenthe actual grotto idea came.<br />

It’s amodel railway with aChristmas<br />

theme,’’ he says. ‘‘It’swhat we all want for<br />

Christmas —someone to buy us lots of<br />

trains.’’<br />

with not doing it before, so we want<br />

people’scomments about what we can do<br />

better,’’ Mr Linnell says. ‘‘You can onlysee<br />

as far as your imagination goes, so we are<br />

keen to hear otherpeople’s ideas.’’<br />

Committee rejects bid<br />

for new liquor outlet<br />

NEWS<br />

Abid to establish aThirsty<br />

Liquor bottlestore in Amberley<br />

has failed.<br />

An application by Townill Ltd<br />

for the bottlestoreinthe town’s<br />

business area was declined by<br />

the HurunuiDistrictLicensing<br />

Committee, chaired by Hurunui<br />

MayorMarie Black.<br />

Mrs Black, who sat on the<br />

committee withcouncillor<br />

Michael Ward and former<br />

mayorWinton Dalley, released<br />

the decisionlast Friday. The<br />

trio ruled thatthe impact of a<br />

new off­licenceat86Carters<br />

Road would be more than minor<br />

on the locality.<br />

They also found that granting<br />

the application wouldbe<br />

contrarytothe objectives of the<br />

Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act,<br />

in that it would not minimise<br />

alcohol harm.<br />

The decision was supported<br />

by many local people,with some<br />

suggesting on the <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> <strong>News</strong> Facebook<br />

page that there wereenough<br />

liquor outletsinAmberley.<br />

Some hailed it as agood<br />

outcome for the town.<br />

The committee received 93<br />

objections to the application,<br />

finding 56 of them valid under<br />

the act.Concerns centred on the<br />

adverse impactabottle store<br />

wouldhave on the amenity<br />

values of the planned locality,<br />

and the proliferation of alcohol<br />

outletsinAmberley.<br />

Objectors werealso<br />

concerned about thelevelof<br />

alcohol­relatedharm already in<br />

the community, the proposed<br />

days and hours of operation,<br />

and the designand layoutofthe<br />

business.<br />

‘‘Put simply, the objectorsdo<br />

not want anotherbottle store in<br />

their community,’’the decision<br />

says.<br />

‘‘A common theme of<br />

evidence we heard was that<br />

many community­based<br />

activities and services are<br />

conducted in and around the<br />

township,beingagathering<br />

place for localsand forming a<br />

hub for the community.<br />

‘‘Activities and amenities<br />

include, for example,the parks,<br />

the library,the schooland<br />

preschools,the retail stores, the<br />

cafes,the sportsclubsand<br />

community groups,the<br />

churches, and the farmers<br />

market,’’ the committee said.<br />

Its proximity to several<br />

‘‘sensitive sites’’ and other<br />

licensedoutletsalso concerned<br />

objectors, and it was felt<br />

another bottlestore was not<br />

compatiblewith the<br />

pleasantnessand character of<br />

the township.<br />

Some objectors said they had<br />

encountered alcohol­related<br />

harm, including rubbish,<br />

nuisance, alcoholism,damage,<br />

vandalism, motor vehicle<br />

incidents involving alcohol,<br />

consumption of alcohol in parks<br />

and public places, and alcoholrelated<br />

incidents at the local<br />

school, according to the<br />

decision.<br />

‘‘The increasedavailability of<br />

afull range of alcohol products<br />

thatappeals to youth was<br />

concerning. Others expressed<br />

concern that the bottle store<br />

would expose young children to<br />

alcohol and would normalise<br />

alcohol consumption in the<br />

community.<br />

‘‘A large number of objectors<br />

believed Amberley already had<br />

enough retail alcohol outlets,<br />

because there is already abottle<br />

store should the community<br />

wishtoobtainalcohol,<br />

specifically the fuller range of<br />

alcohol products,’’ thedecision<br />

said.<br />

Severalobjectorstoldthe<br />

panel they did not believethe<br />

store would be a‘‘high­end’’<br />

store as suggested by the<br />

applicant,but rather would be<br />

an ordinary discount chain<br />

liquor store.<br />

Partieswho took part in the<br />

proceedings,and who disagree<br />

withthe committee’s decision,<br />

can appealtothe Alcohol<br />

Regulatoryand Licensing<br />

Authority.<br />

Appeals must be lodged<br />

within 10 workingdays of the<br />

dateofthe decision being<br />

notified to the parties involved.<br />

Appeals are dealt with through<br />

the trust and the work it does.<br />

‘‘We are tremendouslygrateful<br />

for themany volunteersthat<br />

come on aWednesday afternoon<br />

to pullweeds and plant trees,<br />

The foodforest was formed in<br />

2017 when the Waimakariri<br />

District Council allocated some<br />

land fromthe formerresidential<br />

red zone.<br />

Brent gave particularthanks to<br />

the Department of Corrections<br />

for its helpininstalling more<br />

than 500 cubic metres of mulch<br />

‘‘Theydid the grunt work that<br />

would havetaken volunteers<br />

years longer to do and the trust is<br />

very gratefultothem and<br />

especially Warren and Jan Cook,<br />

the localsupervisors thatreally<br />

got behind the project and<br />

lobbied to get the work done.’<br />

On Monday morning, Igot up early before<br />

the kids —and those withchildren will<br />

know how early that is —and drovein<br />

from Waimakariritobeone of the first to<br />

help bed the chip­seal surfacefor the<br />

partial opening of the northern corridor<br />

to vehicles.<br />

Iwas at the Cranford Street opening at<br />

7am but,Murphy’s Law,ithad been<br />

postponed because of wet weather.<br />

Ihelped turn the sod with then prime<br />

minister John Key in 2016for this project,<br />

and have been advocating for it each step<br />

of the way.<br />

Ipetitioned for the three­laning of the<br />

bridge southboundtobeincluded in the<br />

northern corridor works because it made<br />

sensetoget it done at the sametime to<br />

resolve congestion in the mornings<br />

backing up to Tram Road.The northern<br />

corridor will be agame­changer for <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> commuters, unlocking traffic<br />

corridorsinand out of Christchurch.<br />

Add to that thegains we enjoy from the<br />

the WoodendBypass, to be started<br />

without delay.<br />

Waimakariri district shows ongoing resilience after Covid-19<br />

The Waimakariri district<br />

continues to fare better than<br />

expectedfollowing the impact of<br />

Covid­19.<br />

The September Infometrics<br />

Quarterly EconomicMonitor for<br />

Waimakariri was releasedlast<br />

week.While containingafew<br />

expected declines, it is a<br />

positive report.<br />

This followsOctober’s <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> Business Opinion<br />

Survey which showed ahigher<br />

levelofbusiness confidence<br />

thanatany other timeinthe<br />

pastthree years. More thana<br />

third of surveyed businesses<br />

reported growth.<br />

Enterprise<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

business support manager Miles<br />

Dalton sayswhile Covid­19 has<br />

had an impact, the report is<br />

‘‘reassuringly dull’’.<br />

‘‘Thingsaren’t as flash as they<br />

would havebeen without Covid­<br />

19. However,weare in amuch<br />

better place thanexpected,and<br />

doing comparatively betterthan<br />

most,”hesays.<br />

One of the key statistics is<br />

consumer spending in the<br />

district, whichisup9.1 percent<br />

for the September quarter<br />

compared to the sametime last<br />

year.<br />

For the yeartoSeptember,<br />

consumer spending is up 3.3%,<br />

meaning retailers areahead for<br />

the yeardespite the lockdown.<br />

House prices are also rising,<br />

with values appreciating by 5.9%<br />

in the past year. However,<br />

residential and commercial<br />

building consents areboth down<br />

significantly (­17.1% and ­41.2%<br />

respectively).<br />

The numberofjobseekers has<br />

risen by 344 from last year, but<br />

the unemployment rate in<br />

Waimakariri sits at 3.1% —the<br />

sameasSeptember 2019.<br />

Tourismspendingin<br />

Waimakariri isalso slightly<br />

downonlast year–another<br />

expected outcome –but the 4.4%<br />

decline is minimal compared to<br />

­13% for <strong>Canterbury</strong> and ­16.5%<br />

for New Zealand as awhole.<br />

The district’s growth in gross<br />

domestic product, although<br />

down slightly, was also higher<br />

than both <strong>Canterbury</strong>and New<br />

Zealand.<br />

Waimakariri’s dairy sectoris<br />

dubbed‘‘a source of strength<br />

through the recession’’ in the<br />

report, withdairyfarmers<br />

expected to reap $199 million<br />

this season, down onlyslightly<br />

from $209m lastyear.<br />

"This is a really<br />

important decision for the<br />

future of your council, we<br />

all know how important<br />

water is for each and<br />

every one of us."<br />

Aword from your CEO, Hamish Dobbie.<br />

The term ‘Three Waters’ (drinking water, waste water and storm<br />

water) has filtered its way into the public realm. Currently, HDC<br />

provides reticulated three waters’ services to many (but not all)<br />

properties in Hurunui. Properties not serviced by HDC make their<br />

own arrangements. Over the last two years, central government<br />

has been pursuing aproposal to amalgamate three waters’<br />

services into new entities separate from local government. The<br />

rationale is largely based oneconomies of scale associated with<br />

larger organisations, increasing compliance required from the new<br />

water regulator (Taumata Aurowai) and socialisation ofcosts<br />

across population density. Government has allocated $761 million<br />

of “COVID-19 stimulus funding” to the water reform programme.<br />

HDC has signed aMemorandum ofUnderstanding (MOU), a‘good<br />

faith agreement’ in return for $7.5 million from the stimulus fund.<br />

Before we respond to any government proposal, there will be full<br />

public consultation in 2021. What doyou want tohappen? It's a<br />

really important decision for the future ofyour council, we all know<br />

how important water isfor each and every one ofus.<br />

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

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

Artisan woodcarvers Pete Hollobon<br />

and Bruce Osborn,who call their<br />

business Kaimahi Toi New Zealand,<br />

exhibited at the DunedinArts Show<br />

recently, bring their carvingand<br />

woodworking skills together to form<br />

beautifuland unique art pieces.<br />

Both originally had alove for native<br />

timbers when they werestill at school,<br />

which remained withthem through their<br />

chosencareer paths in the construction<br />

industry. As friends and neighboursfor<br />

over20years,they have now combined<br />

their skills.<br />

Authorities to review tsunami risk zones<br />

By DAVIDHILL<br />

Waimakariri Civil Defence willreview<br />

tsunami evacuation zones after fresh<br />

modelling showed flooding could travel<br />

further inland than previously thought.<br />

Environment<strong>Canterbury</strong>(ECan)<br />

commissionedGNS Science to model the<br />

impacts of various tsunami scenarios for<br />

<strong>North</strong>PegasusBay, afterwork completed<br />

for Christchurch last year resulted in<br />

larger evacuationzonesfor the city.<br />

The reportshowsthe largesttsunami<br />

threats could affect parts of the Kaiapoi<br />

and Pegasus townships, further inland<br />

than previous modelling indicated.<br />

Waimakariri DistrictCouncil<br />

emergency management adviser Brennan<br />

Wiremu welcomes the modelling, which<br />

will helpthe districtbebetter prepared.<br />

‘‘It was really important to have afull<br />

picture of how it could affect our district<br />

beforemakingany changes.We’re now<br />

able to make decisions based on the latest<br />

and mostaccurate science available.’’<br />

Waimakariri Civil Defence is working<br />

withECan, neighbouring councils and<br />

emergency services to draw up new<br />

tsunami evacuation zones and response<br />

plans, Brennan says. It is hoped the new<br />

zones will be ready early in the New Year<br />

and will be accompanied by apublic<br />

education campaign.<br />

‘‘While it’s too early to say exactly what<br />

the new zones will look like, it’s likely to<br />

change fromfour distinct zones centred<br />

on our beach communities to alarger<br />

rectangle that extends the lengthofthe<br />

coast,’’ he says.<br />

After­hours doctors in Rangiora are a<br />

step closer to becoming areality.<br />

Newly appointed Health Minister<br />

Andrew Little approved the lease of<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> District Health Board land<br />

to enable after­hours healthcare at the<br />

Rangiora Health Hub.<br />

He gave the nod during aZoom<br />

meeting with Waimakariri Mayor Dan<br />

Gordon last week.<br />

“After­hours provision is amatter<br />

important to our community and a<br />

matter Ihave been involved in<br />

advocating for over anumber of<br />

years,” Mr Gordon says.<br />

“The minister approving this lease<br />

is excellent news.’’<br />

Mr Gordon said he looked forward to<br />

continuing to work with the board to<br />

see after­hours healthcare available<br />

at the Rangiora Health Hub in the<br />

near future. ‘‘It’s apriority for me and<br />

the community.”<br />

The board had been awaiting<br />

approval from the minister to lease<br />

the land to aprivately owned GP<br />

practice to enable the extension of<br />

hours.<br />

Part of the agreement is that the GP<br />

practice provides extended hours and<br />

is open seven days aweek.<br />

Waimakariri MP Matt Doocey has<br />

been lobbying for after­hours health<br />

care in <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> and says the<br />

announcement is awin for the<br />

community.<br />

“This is an exciting milestone for<br />

our residents and Iwant to<br />

acknowledge our community who<br />

worked together to bring this over the<br />

line.’’<br />

Mr Doocey acknowledged Sandi<br />

McLean for her ‘‘tireless’’ efforts in<br />

collecting signatures for apetition to<br />

the board, community advocate Paula<br />

Thackwell and former board planning<br />

and funding general manager Carolyn<br />

Gullery.<br />

“We can’t have aconversation about<br />

after­hours health care without<br />

acknowledging Paula Thackwell for<br />

her energy and persistence in raising<br />

this as an issue of importance for our<br />

residents.’’<br />

Following the recent loss of<br />

leadership within the board, Mr<br />

Doocey met with acting chief<br />

executive Andrew Brant in person to<br />

ensure timeframes and delivery of the<br />

after­hours facility would remain a<br />

priority.<br />

‘‘I was reassured that he was<br />

keeping after­hours on track,’’ Mr<br />

Doocey said.<br />

Challenging conditions ... Summer pastures present challengesfor dairy cows.<br />

Astrategy to ‘stop<br />

the drop’ in summer<br />

It is wellknownthat summer pasture­growing conditions present achallengefor those<br />

wanting to stop theircows losing bodycondition score (BCS). Challenging summers can<br />

also result in aloss of pregnancies or triggeranexcessive drop in the lactation curve.<br />

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

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

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

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

of OPTISYNC (AlltechInc) at $0.60 cents/cow/day investment for the 150g, let’s look at<br />

the numbers:<br />

It’s anobrainerthat aprofitof$1.26/cow/daycan be madewhilst alsomaintaining milk<br />

production and other health benefits,such as maintaining pregnancy and BCS.<br />

Why let cows dropmilk production, lose BCS or be culledfor beingempty when there<br />

is so much potential for profit by feeding OPTISYNC?<br />

Promotions expectsRangiora to be busy<br />

the event.<br />

Summernutrition facts<br />

Acow’s daily intake is reduced in summerpartly because of the increasing neutral<br />

detergent fibre(NDF)content in the pasture. Higher pasture NDF (reproductive pasture<br />

quality) fills up the rumen faster and the cowwill not get<br />

the required daily nutrient intake neededfor milk<br />

production.<br />

Also, protein levelsinsummer pasturedrop below the<br />

protein requirementsofcows for maintenance and milk<br />

production. Rumen degradable protein(RDP)<br />

supplementation is thereforehighlyrecommendedto<br />

compensatefor thelack of protein in pasturesand in the<br />

overall diet.<br />

OPTISYNC is the most effective solution to fill thisgap<br />

when compared with otherRDP protein supplements.<br />

Why? BecauseOPTISYNC is aspecifically produced slow<br />

release RDP source which is consistent batch to batch.<br />

OPTISYNC has an NDF valueof0,which means it takes<br />

up lessspaceand does not replaceother feeds in the<br />

rumen.<br />

The show must go on for the <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> Kapa Haka Celebration,<br />

which keeps growing.<br />

Tuahiwi School overcame Covid­19<br />

uncertainty and venuerestrictionsto<br />

pull off another big two­day celebration<br />

of Maori culture at the Ohoka Community<br />

Hall on Monday and Tuesday.<br />

PrincipalMelanie Taite­Pitama said<br />

around36school groups, including five<br />

schools from Christchurch taking part for<br />

the firsttime, performed in front of more<br />

than 1500 whanau and friends.<br />

It is believed to be the largest schools<br />

event in <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong>, which means<br />

the organisersare looking forward to<br />

Stadium Waimakaririopeningnext year.<br />

‘‘There’sabit of awaiting list for us<br />

now,’’MsTaite­Pitamasays.<br />

Last Monday night’s show was sold out<br />

after the first coupleofweeks,leaving<br />

some people disappointed at being<br />

unabletoattend.<br />

‘‘We’ll be really happy in <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> when the stadium is up and<br />

running.<br />

‘‘We had to have it abit later thisyear,<br />

because Covid­19 has caused some<br />

disruption to our school programmes,’’<br />

she said.<br />

But localschools got behind the event,<br />

with several pupils taking time out from<br />

school campthis week to perform.<br />

With Maori being the youngest and<br />

fastest growingdemographic in New<br />

Zealand,MsTaite­Pitama said the<br />

celebrationplayed an important role in<br />

allowing Maori studentstoexpress<br />

themselves,and in raising awareness<br />

amongthe wider population.<br />

‘‘That can only be apositive for all of<br />

us. We want to teachpeopleabout who<br />

we are as Maori, the richness that we can<br />

bringtopeople’s lives.’’<br />

The perfect time to create herb-inspired gifts<br />

Fragrant herbs from the garden providethe basis for several<br />

greathome-grown gifts, writes Marilyn Wightman.<br />

These three herbal craft ideas<br />

are easily madebygardeners.<br />

Getting children to help both<br />

encourages their appreciation<br />

of the herb gardenand extends<br />

their skills.<br />

Herbal Posy<br />

Aposy made and given at<br />

Christmas is apersonalised<br />

gesture of friendship and<br />

appreciation.<br />

Harvest flowersand foliage<br />

fromthe garden and remember<br />

thatany plantthat has a<br />

fragrance is aherb. Pick<br />

perfumedflowersand leaves.<br />

Smaller­sized flowersare best<br />

for ahand­held posy, but avoid<br />

daisiesasthesewilt quickly.<br />

Flowers on stalksof20to<br />

30cmare good. Choose:<br />

lavender, marjoram, sage, clove<br />

pinks (carnations),violets; and<br />

savoury and fragrant foliage<br />

suchasrosemary, myrtle,<br />

thyme, santolina, scented<br />

pelargoniumand wormwood.<br />

To make aherbal posy, strip<br />

and remove the lower foliageoff<br />

the picked herbs to revealthe<br />

stalks. Choose arose or larger<br />

flower for the centre, then place<br />

around thisseveral smaller<br />

flowers. Using ametre­long<br />

piece of woolorstring,wrap this<br />

to hold and securethe<br />

arrangement in placeasyou<br />

progressivelyadd flowersand<br />

fragrant leaves around the<br />

centrepiece.Aposy about the<br />

size of asauceristhe ideal size.<br />

Finish it witharing of large<br />

leaves –violet and scented<br />

pelargonium work well. Tie off<br />

the woolorstring and cut the<br />

stemsevenly to make agoodsizedhand­hold.Placeitina<br />

glassorwater to keep it fresh.<br />

When it comes time to giftit,<br />

drainand wrap the hand­hold<br />

with Christmas paper.<br />

Potpourri<br />

Process herbs from the<br />

garden to provide natural<br />

products thatsweeten the air<br />

and provide fragrance in the<br />

home.<br />

Aquantity of dried petals,<br />

flowers and leavescan be mixed<br />

together. This is an oldfashioned<br />

way of creating sweet<br />

air freshenersfor the house.<br />

To makepot pourri, on adry<br />

day, preferably in the morning,<br />

harvest herbalmaterial by<br />

trimming the planttoagood<br />

shape. Spreadthe cuttings on<br />

cleannewspaper or tie it into a<br />

bunchand hang to dry. After 10<br />

days,strip the leaves and<br />

flowers off the stalks and store<br />

in lidded jars or large plastic<br />

containers. Label each with the<br />

variety and date.Asageneral<br />

rule,dried herbs can be usedup<br />

to ayear afterharvest.<br />

For gifting, pot pourri can be<br />

placed in any suitable<br />

container;perhaps something<br />

from an op shop.<br />

Perfect gift ... Home­made herb salt is aChristmas winner.<br />

Herb salt<br />

Combine dried culinary herbs<br />

with table salt to make a<br />

flavoursome mix to use in food<br />

dishes. Herb saltcan be used in<br />

salsas, dips, pesto, pasta,<br />

stuffing, or just as acondiment<br />

to add piquancytoameal.<br />

To make herbal salt, hand<br />

grind one part herbs to three<br />

parts salt. Akitchen whiz will<br />

powder the mix if preferred.<br />

One herb or amix of flavours<br />

works well. Packageinasmall<br />

jar or container.<br />

To encourageaperson<br />

unfamiliar withusingherbs for<br />

flavouring, include afavourite<br />

recipe with the herb salt.<br />

As apractical gift, consider<br />

giving herb plantsfor the<br />

garden.The recipient can start<br />

their own adventure in growing<br />

and experiencing herbs.<br />

SUMMER GARDENING<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> <strong>News</strong>, <strong>December</strong> 3, <strong>2020</strong><br />

Ahearty garden is aChristmas drawcard<br />

It’s time to get your garden spaces<br />

ready for summer entertaining,<br />

writes Rachel Vogan.<br />

Fill the gardens with laughter this<br />

month and embrace all your garden has<br />

to offer you and your loved ones. Enjoy<br />

the best of both worlds by using your<br />

patio, lawn or deck as extra entertaining<br />

space.<br />

Investing wisely in outdoor furniture,<br />

shade sails and umbrellas will pay<br />

dividends when it comes to comfort and<br />

practicality in the hottest months.<br />

For patio tubs and planters, choose<br />

larger urns and containers to use as<br />

focal points, rather than amyriad of<br />

smaller pots, which tend to dry out<br />

faster.<br />

When it comes to watering, do it at the<br />

start or the end of the day, rather than<br />

the middle of the day; your plants will<br />

thank you.<br />

Sunflowers<br />

These magical happy­go­lucky flowers<br />

just ooze happiness and joy. Being easy<br />

to grow from seed, they are ideal<br />

planting projects for children and all<br />

members of the family.<br />

Sow them where you want them to<br />

grow. For the tall ones, place them near<br />

the back of the garden, away from<br />

blustery winds.<br />

From sowing to flower takes about<br />

three months. Full sun is essential and<br />

stakes for the taller types will keep them<br />

standing tall.<br />

Vegetables<br />

New­season potatoes should be on the<br />

menu this month. If you don’t want to dig<br />

up the entire plant, just tickle afew from<br />

under the soil. To store new potatoes,<br />

leave alittle soil on them, and cover<br />

them with adamp towel or sack to<br />

prevent them drying out.<br />

This month is your last chance to get<br />

sweet corn seedlings in the ground.<br />

Plant out new batches of spring onions<br />

and beetroot. Sow seeds of Brussels<br />

Summer challenge ... Lawn clippings can<br />

be blended in to the compost heap, or left<br />

on the lawn to feed the soil.<br />

sprouts in acool part of the garden, with<br />

the aim of having them ready to plant<br />

out in the new year. Remember, these<br />

are along­term crop, and in the ground<br />

for about six months.<br />

Roses<br />

With the first flush of blooms nearly<br />

finished, it is time to do the first lot of<br />

deadheading. Removing the spent<br />

flowers will encourage new stems to<br />

appear sooner. Asprinkle of rose<br />

fertiliser is agood idea, as well as a<br />

layer of mulch. Water roses deeply a<br />

couple of times aweek, aiming not to<br />

water the foliage, just the soil. This<br />

helps prevent black spot and mildew<br />

issues.<br />

Berries and currants<br />

These are plumping up and becoming<br />

juicier by the day. For the best­tasting<br />

berries, pick them as close to eating as<br />

possible.<br />

Allow them to fully ripen on the plants<br />

and avoid putting them in the fridge<br />

unless you have to. Cold berries are<br />

never as sweet as room temperature<br />

ones. Protect ripening fruit by covering<br />

with nets.<br />

Grass clippings<br />

What to do with grass piles can be a<br />

challenge.<br />

Options are to blend them in to the<br />

compost heap, along with other layers of<br />

organic matter. However, avoid having<br />

thick layers of just clippings as they take<br />

along time to break down.<br />

Thin layers can be used as alight<br />

mulch around trees and shrubs; again<br />

don’t go too thick, ideally no more than<br />

5cm. Chooks enjoy them, too.<br />

If lawn clippings are quite short they<br />

can be left on the lawn as they will<br />

quickly melt down into the soil below<br />

the grass.<br />

Plums andcherries<br />

Early varieties will be fruiting now,<br />

and others won’t be far behind. Keep an<br />

eye out for aphids and greenfly, which<br />

are drawn to the fresh new foliage.<br />

Prune out any unwanted new branches<br />

and stems to aid in the fruit ripening.<br />

Add athick layer of mulch around the<br />

base of the trees to keep the soil cooler<br />

and retain moisture over the hottest<br />

months, as well as keep weeds at bay.<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

The Hurunui District<br />

Landcare Group welcomes<br />

government funding that will<br />

toward meeting regulatory<br />

requirements, while<br />

protecting andenhancingtheir<br />

The group’schairman,<br />

Cheviotsheep and beef farmer<br />

Ben Ensor,saysthe funding is<br />

being used to employthree<br />

catchment farmadvisers who<br />

willhelp members putfarm<br />

plans together andidentify the<br />

risks and opportunities<br />

specifictotheir farm.<br />

“It’s agreatopportunity for<br />

us to be able to assistfarmers<br />

withthe incredibleamount of<br />

moment,” he says.<br />

“A lotofthe farmersthe<br />

‘‘In<strong>Canterbury</strong>, thefocus<br />

has been on intensivefarming<br />

The advisers will support<br />

farmers as theytake theirfirst<br />

introduced,the farmsinour<br />

district will be in good shapeto<br />

meet them.”<br />

He says thatdocumenting<br />

existing landsteward<br />

part of theadvisers’ role is to<br />

help farmers identify and<br />

capture these.<br />

He believesthe farmer­led<br />

‘‘Farmersneed someoneto<br />

whowill helptailorafarm<br />

He says, as an industry,<br />

farmersneedtoget resultsand<br />

need to be held accountable.<br />

“Having afarm planthat<br />

Gallery bothplaytheir<br />

partinsupporting a<br />

burgeoning arts<br />

community,among other<br />

Community Board deputy<br />

chairwomanand arts<br />

advocateJackie Watson,<br />

Mr Gordon says.<br />

‘‘She’sinvolvedinalot<br />

akey partofwhat<br />

The council already has<br />

an artinpublic places<br />

‘‘I’m keentopull<br />

Mr Gordon studied art<br />

history at university and<br />

haslong been an advocate<br />

of thearts in thedistrict.<br />

‘‘I’ve beeninvolved in a<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

Fernside School’s 120­year­old<br />

after an extensive, $150,000<br />

upgrade.<br />

The original‘‘swimming bath’’<br />

cost£90 and openedonelection<br />

day in 1899. It didn’thave a<br />

reliable water supply until1953<br />

whenthe school committee<br />

decided, under pressure from<br />

the HealthDepartment, to sink<br />

awelltoprovideabetter flow.<br />

After 15.24mofpipe was<br />

driven into a5.4mwellwithout<br />

muchwater flow, twoplugsof<br />

gelignitewere exploded at the<br />

bottom.<br />

‘‘This was justwhatwas<br />

neededand aflow exceeding<br />

1500 gallons (5678 litres)per<br />

hour wasfound,’’ said the<br />

school’s principal,DavidTaylor,<br />

reading fromthe school’s150<br />

Year jubileebook during the<br />

officialpoolreopening<br />

ceremonylast Friday in the<br />

Fernside Hall, nexttothe<br />

group of parents, including<br />

Sarah Clenshaw,Vicky Edwards<br />

andLizzy Anderson, working<br />

with assistant principalAndrew<br />

upgraded.<br />

‘‘Oneyeardownthe track the<br />

Andrew says. ‘‘Wenow havea<br />

brandnew pump, which allows<br />

us to have 56 children swimming<br />

at anyone timeand anew<br />

systemtocontrol thechemical<br />

flow into thepool.’’<br />

Other improvementsinclude<br />

anew PVCliner, two newpool<br />

covers, anew pump shed, new<br />

Mayor highlights<br />

transport concerns<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

WaimakaririMayor Dan Gordonhas<br />

been goinginto bat for the district’s<br />

transport woes.<br />

Mr Gordon wroteto the New<br />

Zealand TransportAgencylast week<br />

to express the district’s frustrations<br />

that new speed limits on State<br />

Highway 1betweenLineside Road<br />

and Waikuku ignored concernsraised<br />

by the Woodend­SeftonCommunity<br />

Board.<br />

The letter followedapresentation<br />

the mayor gave to the Christchurch<br />

City Council earlylast month in<br />

support of Cranford Street<br />

improvements in the city, in response<br />

to opposition fromthe Papanui­Innes<br />

Community Boardand localresidents.<br />

‘‘As an adjoiningRoad Controlling<br />

Authority, we would have anticipated<br />

amore proactive two­wayengagement<br />

with us as you finalisedyour<br />

considerations over these speedlimit<br />

changes, rather thannotification once<br />

decisionshad been made,’’MrGordon<br />

said in his letterto thetransport<br />

agency’s director regional<br />

relationships in the SouthIsland,Jim<br />

Harland.<br />

The concerns relate to thespeed<br />

limit at the Ashley Riverbridge<br />

remaining at 100kmh,the retentionof<br />

the 70kmhlimit at the Pegasus<br />

roundabout, and the proximity of the<br />

speed­limit changetothe Rangiora­<br />

Woodend and WoodendBeach roads.<br />

‘‘With the upcoming connectionof<br />

the collector road through<br />

Ravenswood,wehave serious<br />

concerns aboutthe lack ofasafe<br />

❛We would have<br />

anticipated amore proactive<br />

two­way engagement with<br />

us.❜<br />

—Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon<br />

crossing overSH1 for pedestrians and<br />

cyclists at this point,’’ Mr Gordon said.<br />

The mayor calledonthe agencyto<br />

engage further with the community.<br />

The Papanui­Innes Community<br />

Board hadrecommendedthe city<br />

council support aproposal to<br />

maintain the existing current roading<br />

alignment along Cranford Street,<br />

Innes Road and BerwickStreet.<br />

But this would havegone against<br />

Christchurch northern corridor<br />

planning ‘‘whichhas been anticipated<br />

for more than adecade as part of the<br />

wider land­use and transportplanning<br />

for Greater Christchurch’’, Mr Gordon<br />

saidinhis presentation.<br />

‘‘When we are makingthe<br />

investment through the ‘park and ride’<br />

withEnvironment<strong>Canterbury</strong> for the<br />

express buses,it wouldhave been<br />

disappointing if the city council could<br />

not havemade it apriority to ease<br />

congestionduring peaktimes,’’ he<br />

said, reflecting on his presentation.<br />

Mr Gordon wasrelieved to learnlast<br />

week that the city council had agreed<br />

to backthe proposed realignment,<br />

which will help the express buses<br />

fromRangiora and Kaiapoi, due to be<br />

introducedby Environment<br />

of Health,DrAshleyBloomfield.<br />

The masks are being auctioned<br />

on TradeMetoraise funds for<br />

BlindLow VisionNZ.<br />

Project co­ordinator Quentin De<br />

Hamelsaid he wanted to do<br />

something positive to mark what<br />

has been an extraordinary year.<br />

“I felt aface mask was agood<br />

symbolfor the year and the 1pm<br />

briefings with the prime minister<br />

and Dr Ashley Bloomfield will<br />

remainasakey memory of <strong>2020</strong>.<br />

“I was delightedthat both<br />

Jacinda and Ashley chose to<br />

support our fundraiser.”<br />

Dr Bloomfield has signed with<br />

his familiar openingline from his<br />

daily 1pm pressbriefings, ‘‘Kia ora,<br />

koutoukatoa’’ (or greetings, hello<br />

to you all),while Ms Ardern used<br />

her catchphrase,‘‘bekind’’.<br />

“What aterrific Christmas<br />

present for someone who has<br />

everything —something really<br />

special that you can pass on to your<br />

grandchildren,” Mr De Hamel says.<br />

“I think the face mask has<br />

becomeiconic with what has been<br />

<strong>2020</strong>. The face mask has literally<br />

been the face of the pandemic.’’<br />

Top lambs require top rams<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> rams are the secret to<br />

breeding mint­condition lambs,<br />

according to Marlborough farmers Ali<br />

and Stu Campbell.<br />

The Marlborough father­and­son duo<br />

paid tribute to ram breeders Chris and<br />

Jane Earl, of Scargill in <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong>, after being announced as<br />

the winners of the <strong>Canterbury</strong> A&P<br />

Association mint lamb competition on<br />

Friday.<br />

“It’s nice to give some recognition to<br />

Marlborough, but we couldn’t do it<br />

without our ram breeder,” Stu Campbell<br />

said.<br />

“Chris and Jane look after us well and<br />

we appreciate what they do for us. We’ve<br />

been buying their rams for the last six<br />

years.<br />

“We are on the same page for what<br />

they’re breeding and what we want to<br />

achieve.”<br />

The Campbells first entered the mint<br />

lamb competition last year, winning the<br />

the tenderness class, but the lamb was<br />

“all fat” when it came to overall<br />

honours, Stu Campbell said.<br />

This year they entered two lambs,<br />

being placed first equal in the 14.6kg to<br />

19.9kg class and winning the 20kg to<br />

24.9kg class.<br />

The Campbells have 117ha at Spring<br />

Creek, near Seddon, and 400ha at<br />

Awatere Valley, running amixed sheep<br />

farm with 1400 ewes and avineyard.<br />

“They work in well together,” Stu<br />

Campbell said.<br />

“For us, the sheep are the leaf<br />

pluckers to open up the fruit and then<br />

once we’ve harvested the grapes you’ve<br />

got that platform to graze.”<br />

Ashburton farmers Paul and Kay<br />

Gardner, who have won the mint lamb<br />

competition three times, won the new<br />

ram breeders' class.<br />

The ram breeders’ class was<br />

introduced this year as aseparate<br />

competition to stud breeders and to<br />

open up the mint lamb competition for<br />

commercial farmers.<br />

New side tops table<br />

after beating Ohoka<br />

Leeston­Southbridge jumped to the top of<br />

the countrycricket standings with a<br />

comprehensive eight­wicket demolition of<br />

Ohoka on Saturday.<br />

The combined side’svictory sees it<br />

leapfrogWeedons, which suffered ahefty<br />

79­run loss to Darfield, and lead the CRV<br />

Ambreed Country PremierOne Day<br />

<strong>2020</strong>/21competition.<br />

At LeestonPark, the home side chose to<br />

bowl firstand immediately rolledthrough<br />

Ohoka’s top order.<br />

Sam Chamberlain and Tom Burt did the<br />

damage at the top,hitting goodareas and<br />

grabbing four wickets between them.<br />

Burt bowledaclosetounplayable<br />

But it was atotal team bowlingand<br />

fieldingeffort,creatingtwo run outs,<br />

which resultedinthe dismissalofan<br />

Ohoka side missing afew key players to<br />

injury.The side was all out for apaltry 93<br />

in 35 overs.<br />

Only Harry Fitzpatrick offeredany<br />

resistance and was left stranded on 40 not<br />

out off 86 balls.<br />

After losing RupertYoung for aduck in<br />

the first over after apeach from Austin<br />

Hamilton, Leeston­Southbridge knocked<br />

off the win inside15overs, with<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> Country star Harry<br />

Chamberlain smashing 45 off 31 balls, and<br />

Country development coachesToby Doyle<br />

(15 not out) and formerDutch<br />

international Tim Gruijters (20 not out)<br />

finishing the job.<br />

Big Darfieldwin<br />

Darfield’spowerfultop­order set up a<br />

commanding victory to knock Weedons off<br />

the top perch on its home soil.<br />

Liam Foulkes (26 runs off 52 balls) and<br />

Nick Jenkins(33 off 45) put on a63­run<br />

opening stand, before Jesse Frew (73 off<br />

87) and <strong>Canterbury</strong> Kings star Henry<br />

Shipley(52 off 56) put on 109 for the third<br />

wicket and set up afine first inningstotal<br />

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

Weedons’ reply stuttered to17/2, with<br />

all­rounder Frew again in the action to<br />

remove the openers, and the run chase<br />

never recovered.<br />

James Richardsagain showed his class,<br />

top­scoring with an unbeaten 59, but aside<br />

from keeper­batsmanJames Watson (26),<br />

he got little help and the side was all out<br />

for 143 in the 39th over.<br />

What’s happening in your<br />

community…<br />

Tsunami Modelling Leads toReview of<br />

Evacuation Zones<br />

Waimakariri Civil Defence will review tsunami<br />

evacuation zones following the completion of<br />

modelling that shows in worse-case scenarios,<br />

flooding could travel further inland than<br />

previously thought.<br />

Environment <strong>Canterbury</strong> (ECan) commissioned<br />

GNS Science to model the impacts of various<br />

tsunami scenarios for <strong>North</strong> Pegasus Bay, aer<br />

work completed for Christchurch last year resulted<br />

in larger evacuation zones for the city.<br />

The report shows the largest tsunami threats could<br />

affect areas of the District that are outside of the<br />

current evacuation zones, including parts of the<br />

Kaiapoi and Pegasus townships.<br />

Waimakariri District Emergency Management<br />

Advisor, Brennan Wiremu is welcoming the<br />

modelling and says it will help the District be<br />

better prepared for tsunami risks.<br />

“It was really important to have afull picture of<br />

how itcould affect our District before making any<br />

changes,” says Brennan. “We’re now able to make<br />

decisions based on the latest and most accurate<br />

science available.”<br />

Brennan says they’re planning to have the new<br />

zones ready early in the New Year and they’ll be<br />

accompanied by alarge public education campaign<br />

for the community.<br />

Modelling shows that the largest tsunami scenario<br />

that could affect the Waimakariri coast would be a<br />

large, rare tsunami from South America in which the<br />

District would have more than 12hours of warning.<br />

Rangiora Health Hub<br />

During arecent meeting between Waimakariri<br />

District Council Mayor Dan Gordon and Health<br />

Minister Andrew Little, the minister approved the<br />

lease of <strong>Canterbury</strong> District Health Board (CDHB)<br />

land to enable aer-hours healthcare at the<br />

Rangiora Health Hub.<br />

CDHB have been awaiting approval from the<br />

minister to lease the land to aprivately owned<br />

GP practice to enable the extension of hours. Part<br />

of the agreement is that they will provide for<br />

extended hours and be open seven days aweek.<br />

Woodend School Traffic Signals<br />

Making it safer for Woodend School students<br />

to cross SH1 is now one step closer with work<br />

on installing traffic signals outside the school<br />

beginning last week.<br />

Mayor Dan Gordon and Woodend School Principal<br />

Adrienne Simpson were there to celebrate the start<br />

of work and try out the temporary crossing.<br />

The original crossing point has been withdrawn<br />

and atemporary crossing has been put in place<br />

until the traffic signals are operational ahead of<br />

the start of the new school year. Please note,<br />

travel speed through the area will be reduced to<br />

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

extra care and follow the signs.<br />
