Paper moves to new office

By ROBYN BRISTOW

North Canterbury’s best­read newspaper

marked amilestone on Tuesday.

The NorthCanterburyNews has

consolidated its Rangiora and Amberley

offices underone roof, in anew buildingat

14 Ashley Street, Rangiora, beside the

mainoffice of Luisetti Seeds.

The paperwillcontinue to provide

extensivecoverage of theregion,from the

Waimakariri River to Kekerengu,north of

Kaikoura.

It will be more efficient withits nine

staff workingfrom one location.

They will maintain stronglinks withthe

Waimakariri,Hurunui and Kaikoura

districts, continuing to travel throughout

North Canterbury.

The North Canterbury News grewout of

the merger of the HurunuiNews and the

North Canterbury News,both bought by

AlliedPress in 2006 and 2013 respectively.

It was astrategic movetogive readers

and advertisers increased reach in a

strongweekly publication.

AlliedPress, whichowns the Otago Daily

Times,has astable of community papers.

The HurunuiNews began lifeasthe

Hurunui DistrictNews in 1991.

BarryCropp, a22­year­old from

Amberley,felt that thetime had come for

the Hurunui districttohave its own

newspaper. The first copy said it was

published to keepreaders informed of

localhappenings.

Initially, the paper was delivered

fortnightly from Leithfieldthroughto

Cheviot,including Amberley, Waipara,

Hawarden,Waikari,Culverden,Waiau,

Rotherham and HanmerSprings.

Its original officewas in Pound Street,

Amberley, behind the Post Office. It was

printed by the Westport News and laterby

GuardianPrintinAshburton.

Barry sold the paper to Johnand Lynne

Winsloe in 1993,with issue No.48the first

under the new owners.

Johnhad previously been the

postmasteratAmberleybut had a

newspaper background.

Theyintroduced anew masthead in

1994, removing districtfrom the title and

delivering intothe Waimakariri,aswellas

covering the wholeofthe Hurunui.

Viewing places were at a

premium for Kaiapoi’s

Santa Parade last Saturday.

Alarge crowd, five and six

deep in places, began

packing into Williams Street

an hour before the popular

annual event.

The parade featured an

eclectic mix of floats,

including decorated trucks,

traction engines, fire trucks

and three­wheeled

motorbikes, plus popular

film characters from Star

Wars, Frozen,and the everpopular

Minions.

Alongside the floats were

talented street performers.

But the biggest cheer came

at the end of the parade for

Santa, atop his sleigh with

his elves at his side.

Merry Christmas to you all!Have asafe and Happy

New Year from all the Rockgas North Canterbury Team.

By ROBYN BRISTOW

CPG Hotels, oneofNew

Zealand’slargest privately

groups, is buying Hanmer

Springs’ heritage hotel. It will

The complex, formerly the

Hanmer Springs Heritage

Hotel, is in the heart of the

villageand will be called the

Hanmer Springs Hotel.

It will be fully refurbished

next year to transform it into a

five­star Fable Hotel &Resorts

branded hotel.

CPG Hotels Group

operations director Ronnie

Ronalde says the company is

delightedtobring backabout

40 jobs to the village.

Paper consolidates into one office in Rangiora

From Page 1

At the start of 1998 the Winsloes sold

the Hurunui News to Bevan and Rosalie

Archer, with their first edition being

March 2, 1998. Bevan had been made

“This recent acquisition

means we are abletobreathe

new lifeintothe property.

Hanmer Springs is abeautiful

location surrounded by

mountains, and with its famous

thermal hot springs,mountain

biking and hiking.

‘‘Weare excited to be adding

to the destination’s appealfor

bothlocal, and eventually

international, visitors.

“We haveafantastic chef

coming on boardwho will work

withour CPG Hotels Group

executivechef Jinu Abraham

to offeralocally sourcedmenu

—hearty foodwithJinu’sown

unique twist.”

Fable, aboutiquebrand, was

unveiled by CPG Hotels in July.

It represents amove away from

large­scale establishments,

offeringall guests “full­service

luxury” and tailor­made,

personalised experiences.

The salestartsanew chapter

for the hotel,which was built in

1879 as an 18­room wooden

lodge.

Since then, it was used as a

hospital duringWorld War 1.

It has seen the addition of a

Spanish­style concrete

building and thebell towerin

1932.

In 1958,the original lodge

was damaged by fire.

“The current owners are

delighted to be selling this

iconichoteltoCPGroup as

they knowour plansare to

reopenand start restoringand

refurbishingthe hotel to a

redundant from Air New Zealand the

previous year. The couple ran it until

Allied Press bought it in 2006, followed

by the Rangiora­based North

Canterbury News seven years later.

The merger resulted in the paper,

5­star luxury level under our

new Fable brand,”MrRonalde

says.

Across ninehectares,there

are 54 rooms,16ofwhich are

garden villas.

The hotel has been closed to

guests since Marchand its

reopening ahead of summer

means it canwelcome visitors

JLL Hotels agent Nick

Council urged to take tough stance on vaping

By DAVID HILL

The CancerSociety wants the

Waimakariri District Counciltoget

toughonvaping.

Apresentation from thesociety to last

week’s council meeting praisedlocal

efforts toward makingthe district

smokefree.

But it wantscouncillors to update its

policies to discourage vaping.

Cancer Society healthpromotion

manager MartinWitt saidwhile it was

generallyaccepted that vaping was less

harmful than smoking, it was not

considered asafe product.

‘‘Both the Cancer Societyand the

Canterbury District HealthBoard are

continuing to be cautious aboutvaping.’’

Vaping should be usedonly by smokers

as ameans to quit smoking and should

not be used by non­smokersoryoung

people, Mr Witt said.

‘‘Vaping has awholecocktailof

different chemicals and while it appears

to be less harmful thansmoking, it hasn’t

been around for long enough to

understand thelong­term effects.

‘‘But there is sufficient evidence to

cause doubt.’’

Waimakariri has the second­lowest

rate of smokers in the South Island,with

around11percentofresidents lighting

up, comparedtothe national rate of 13%.

Mayor Dan Gordon asked for council

staff to prepare areport for councillors

to consider revising thecouncil’s

smokefree policy.

Councillors backed acall from Ngai

Tuahuririrunanga residentstolowerthe

speed limit through the Tuahiwi village

to 40kmh.

Tuahiwi resident DeirdreCarrol told

councillors of her concernsfor the safety

of local schoolchildren caused by

speeding motorists.

She calledonthe council to install

paths and cycleways,and improvevillage

lighting.

Mr Gordon askedcouncil staff to

report back to councillorsonproposals

for paths, cycleways and lighting in

Tuahiwivillage.

Welcome home, Susan and Ben

By DAVID HILL

AKaiapoi mother and son were pleased

to move into anew, warm home on

Friday.

Susan Bush and her son Ben Stade,

aged 18, were handed the keys by

Housing Minister Megan Woods to their

two­bedroom unit, one of five new units

built by Kainga Ora (formerly Housing

New Zealand) in Williams Street.

‘‘We looked at it last week and it was

amazing. I’m very excited,’’ Susan said

ahead of the minister’s arrival.

For the last 20 years, Susan has been

living in anearby Housing New Zealand

home which was damaged in the

earthquakes. It was overdue for an

upgrade.

The old house was cold and damp,

which affected Ben’s asthma, she said.

Ben said it was ‘‘awesome’’ to have the

minister come to open their new home.

‘‘But Ithink my mates will give me a

hard time about it next week.’’

Kainga Ora area manager Fraser

Benson said the five one and twobedrooms

were built on asite previously

occupied by athree­bedroom house.

‘‘Traditionally, these (Housing New

Zealand homes) were three bedrooms

and abig yard. This was a1948 property.

‘‘We are finding there is no longer the

demand for three­bedroom homes. In

Christchurch and Waimakariri, around

60 percent are looking for aonebedroom

unit and 20% require two

bedrooms.’’

Most clients are single people or

couples, often elderly, though there are

several families seeking two­bedroom

units.

‘‘There’s astill amajor shortage in

Canterbury. We’re building around 200

to 250 new units ayear and there’s 185

under construction at the moment.’’

Afurther 15 one and two­bedroom

units were being built in Kaiapoi and

are scheduled to open in April.

Dr Woods said about 30 local

tradespeople were employed during

construction of the new units on

Williams Street.

Awesome occasion ... Housing Minister Megan Woods, left, hands over the keys to

Susan Bush and her son, 18­year­old Ben Stade, at their new home in the newly completed

Kainga Ora housing units on Williams Street, Kaiapoi.

‘‘The government has committed to

funding new builds not just because we

need new houses, but because it creates

jobs and keeps local tradies in work.’’

It also provides certainty for local

builders who are able to take on

apprentices, with support from the

government’s apprenticeship support

programme.

More than 100 new apprentices have

been taken on to work on Kainga Ora

builds in the Auckland and Greater

Christchurch areas, and ‘‘it’s just

starting to take off here’’, Dr Woods said.

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Venturing intothe workforcecan be a

daunting prospect for youth. But it can be

Why do planners upset farmers?

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Intergenerational farmers are rural

survivors, but they do not haveabig voice

in environmentalmanagement,

according to Lynda Murchison.

They farm in accordancewith what

theirgrandfathers did. Theydon’t

embrace much of the new technology

available to farmers, but theirland is in

good heart, she says.

‘‘They must be doingsomething right.’’

Ms Murchison has been awardedaPhD

for her thesisthat explores the conflicts

between long­time farmers and

environmentalplanning processes.

It has been recommended for

publication in eight journals.

She says if everyplanner, government

minister and scientist stopped to listen to

farmers, ‘‘wewould not havehalf the

environmentalissues we have’’.

‘‘These peopleknow how to farm and

they care about the impact of farming on

the land. Theyhave adjusted and evolved

theirfarming practicestotake careofthe

land.

‘‘It is such apiece of goldsitting there,

beingignored.’’

She said she did not start out to to write

aplanning thesis.‘‘It started as astory

about farmers and how they knew their

land. But it ended up aplanning thesis

because Ihad been aplanner for 25

years.’’

Ms Murchison farms in partnership

withher husband, JockMurchison, in the

WekaPass in North Canterbury. She has

worked in resource management for

around 25 yearsinCanterbury, in roles

withdistrictand regional councils,

including the Selwyn council and

Environment Canterbury.

Morerecently, she has worked with the

iwi authority,TeRunanga ONgai Tahu.

She runs an environmental planning

consultancy business and lectures parttime

in resource and environmental

management at the University of

Canterbury. She is aHurunuidistrict

councillor and the immediate past

presidentofNorth Canterbury

Federated Farmers.

Ms Murchison said she couldnever

understandwhy farmersgot so uptight

about some of the work planners did.

‘‘I wanted to try to find out what it was

we do as planners that grinds their gears

so much and why theyneverlistened,’’

she says.

She also wantedtounderstand why

planners continued mapping wetlands

and SignificantNatural Areas across

Canterbury when farmershad shown

theywere preparedtovoluntarily

establish covenants on theirfarms

throughthe QEII Trust to protect areas.

Ms Murchison talked to 52 farming

families in Canterbury and read the

farming life stories of another 30 for her

thesis.

Farmers talked about the conflict over

Lynda Murchison ... ‘‘I wanted to try to find out what it was we do as planners that grinds

their gears so much and why they never listened.’’

PHOTO: SUPPLIED

planning processessuch as mapping of

Significant Natural Areas, and the

freshwater debate.

‘‘We look to sciencetofind solutions

sometimes for problems,and ignore the

knowledge of people who have livedwith

the land for generations.’’

Ms Murchison believes like­minded

people,such as those wanting to protect

the land and waterways, including

planners and farmers, shouldwork

together to protect the land,its

biodiversity, and freshwater.

She is supporting this approach in the

Hurunuidistrict, where environmental

issues are ‘‘quitemanageable’’.

‘‘We haveahuge number of family

farms in the Hurunui, and long­time

2339217

residents who have invested in the

district. We can run apilot in the

Hurunui by putting like­minded people

together and draw up arecipe for how we

mightdothingsdifferently, with afocus

on success on the ground, rather than the

rightwords on awee bit of paper,’’she

says.

Too often, people who were locked in a

process complicated that process, and

sometimes planners madealot of

assumptions, someofwhich were not

valid.

Her thesis is titled, Conflict Between

Intergenerational FamilyFarmers and

Environmental Planning Processes: An

‘‘Economic versus Environment’’

Around the electorate with

STUART SMITH MP FOR KAIKOURA

Climate policies must

be workable, effective

The Government has finally gone and

declared a‘‘climate emergency’’.

For aGovernment that has delivered

little over the past three years, this will

almost certainly be another example of

virtue signalling. Symbolic gestures,

however, won’t cut it when it comes to

climate change.

They have since asserted that this

declaration will be more than virtue

signalling.

This leads me to ask the question: If

we are in fact in aclimate emergency,

why did Jacinda Ardern mention the

word ‘‘climate’’only six times in her

4500+ word Speech from the Throne?

And, secondly, why did the

Government bid to declare aclimate

emergency get pushed back aday so it

could prioritise passing tax legislation?

Declaring aclimate emergency

implies that climate change is their top

priority, but clearly it isn’t.

It is also reasonable for agovernment

to release an effective plan to reduce

emissions in apractical, sensible way.

National will support any government

policy that does just this. Only effective

policies can help keep temperature

increases to 1.5 degrees, as required by

the Paris Agreement, and deliver net

zero emissions by 2050.

Threats to local governance lie ahead, councillor says

The Editor,

Well, what ayear 2020 has

been. We never imagined a

pandemic and the changes to

our lives it would bring.

The council continued to

provide essential services and

we all became familiar with

Zoom meetings.

The highlights of 2020 for me

include the AA rating awarded

to the council by the Local

Government Excellence

programme.

The Waimakariri District

Council is one of two councils

to achieve this rating and the

only one to have achieved it

twice. This is areflection of

We simply cannot afford to sink

investments into ineffective policies.

New Zealand will run out of money long

before we reach our targets if we commit

to policies that don’t work. Our policies

must lower emissions, or be dropped.

It is therefore questionable why the

Government has now released its

Carbon Neutral Government

Programme.

Asimilar programme was introduced

by Helen Clark in 2007, which the next

National Government had to scrap

because it simply wasn’t realistic to

achieve the goals she had set.

It was underfunded and would have

been far too costly to run.

Iwill most certainly now be holding

the Government to account as National’s

spokesperson for Climate Change to

ensure that its new programme has been

tested, will continue to be tested, and

drives down emissions effectively and

cheaply.

The task before us is monumental. Net

zero emissions in 30 years is hugely

ambitious, especially for acountry that

earns half of its export income from the

primary sector.

But National believes the goal is

achievable if we are prepared to think

openly and seriously about the problem.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

good governance and

dedicated staff.

Secondly, the council

retained its Standard and

Poors AA rating in a

challenging climate. This

greatly reduces the cost of

council borrowing, which

ultimately benefits ratepayers.

However, there are threats

on the horizon.

Central government, in my

view, is looking to take ‘‘local’’

out of local government. Two

examples are the Three Waters

Reforms where the council

would lose control of this core

service to anew corporate

entity with no elected

representatives or

accountability to ratepayers

(and the compulsory

chlorination of drinking water

by July 1, 2021), and alikely

increase in costs.

The second example is

overriding our District Plan by

removing parking

requirements.

To compensate, any new

public parking will be paid by

ratepayers, not developers.

The logic seems to be that by

creating congestion, other

modes of transport will be

utilised.

Idon’t think this model suits

our scattered rural district

with limited public transport.

These and other changes will

have aprofound effect on local

government viability, the

services provided, and

accountability.

In 2021 the council will

consult on its Long Term Plan.

There will be aneed to balance

growth demands with

affordable rates.

Last year’s increase was

reduced to 1.5 percent, but that

Atime to be grateful

With Christmas and the festive season

fast approaching, Iwant to

acknowledge and reflect on the year.

Christmas provides us with the time

to be mindful and appreciate those

people around us who offer guidance

and support.

Iwant to begin with the team of

Hurunui district councillors.

As adistrict we have arange of

capable and competent decisionmakers

who have contributed through

their various roles within the council.

They are committed and devoted to

our district and Iappreciate the time

they take to prepare and promote good

outcomes.

Iamalso grateful for all the staff who

work and serve our community through

their employment with the council.

It is important that we acknowledge

and value their contribution.

This has been ayear of challenge.

The uncertainty has largely been

contained but Iammindful that it has

created an enormous amount of stress.

Thankfully, we have the ability to

travel within our country, but this may

not allow some families to be together

over Christmas.

Itrust you are able use alternative

ways to connect with loved ones over

this period, and that we all care for

members of our district who may be

more vulnerable through this time.

Thank you to St John and Fire and

Emergency service volunteers, who

will be providing cover for our district

over the holidays.

Iappreciate your willingness to give

yourself and bring your experience,

skills and compassion, while asking for

nothing in return other than the

satisfaction of doing what’s right and

good for our community.

Iwould also like to acknowledge the

police within the district. Their

presence and devotion to keeping the

community safe is respected and

appreciated.

Toot for Tucker was aresounding

success in Amberley last week, thanks

to many community volunteers.

Iunderstand that all the food banks

were grateful for the generosity shown.

Thank you for helping to make

Christmas atime for all to share.

Christmas for me means family and

togetherness.

Iamlooking forward to spending

time with family and enjoying the

opportunity to be with grandchildren,

sharing their joys.

Dave and Iwish you all avery happy

Christmas. We hope it brings you peace

and laughter, and we all look forward to

2021 with the promise for abetter

tomorrow.

level is not sustainable.

On top of this we also have

the District Plan review, which

occurs every 10 years.

Do not hesitate to contact me

or your local community board

if assistance is required with

any matter.

We are here to help.

Finally, Iwould like to wish

your readers aMerry

Christmas, aHappy New Year

and safe travels over the

holidays.

Nga mihi,

Philip Redmond QSM,

Waimakariri District

Councillor,

(Kaiapoi­Woodend Ward).

Race marks opening of bike trails

By ROBYN BRISTOW

New world class mountainbiking

trails opened in

Hanmer Springs at the

weekend, after five years in

the making.

The new trails, in the

Hanmer Forest Park, add to a

network that caters to all ages

and abilities.

The new trails include the

4km Tombstone trail, an

advanced single­track that

provides 185m of climbing to

its highest point at 698m,

followed by an exciting 240m

descent with multiple twists,

turns and drops.

The lead track builder of

the Tombstone trail, Steve

Pearson, said it took five

years to build atrail he

described as truly special.

‘‘The terrain is as good as it

gets for mountain bike trails.

It really is world class and

compares to anything you’ll

find in Europe or North

America.

‘‘Tombstone also has some

of the best views around,

making it not just aride but a

spectacular experience.’’

The lead builder of the

Southern Cross trail, Mark

Inglis, says the trails will help

attract avid mountain bikers

to the alpine village.

‘‘These new trails put on us

on the national mountainbiking

map. Where else can

you be having acoffee and

then afew pedal strokes later

be on some of the best

mountain bike trails?’’

The trails were constructed

mostly by hand, with

volunteers completing 90

percent of the work,

including members of the

Track Network Group and the

Hanmer Springs Mountain

Bike Club.

‘‘Without the support of our

local community, we wouldn’t

have been able to create

something to this scale,’’ Mr

Inglis says.

‘‘It’s atrue testament of

teamwork and community

spirit.’’

The trails were officially

opened at the inaugural

Tombstone Mountain Bike

Race last Sunday by two­time

mountain bike world

champion Anton Cooper.

He says it is an exciting

prospect having the new

trails open in his own North

Canterbury backyard.

‘‘New Zealand has some of

the best trails in the world

and all reports are saying

these new trails are up there.

They’re technical and

exciting.

‘‘The trails are really just

the icing on the cake.

Mountain biking is taking off

around the world and, amidst

apandemic, it’s awesome to

see what the team in Hanmer

has been able to do.’’

He set the riders off in the

race, which consisted of three

different courses, with two

incorporating the new

advanced Tombstone track.

The third was ashorter and

less technical ride for bikers

The weekend also marked

the official opening of abike

wash and repair bay, built

with support from Hanmer

Springs Four Square.

building has been strengthened and is

set to return as aplaceofremembrance.

The 1922 building housestwo marble

war memorialplaques,and aroll of

honour, to localservicemen who served

in the two world wars. It is also home to

the Kowai Archives Society.

It is listedasaCategory 2historic site

underthe Historic Places Act and is

identified as aheritage building in the

Hurunui District Plan.

The building in upper Sefton was

badlydamaged in the 2010 and 2011

earthquakes. It has been strengthened

and renovated with insurance fundsand

aportionofaLottery environment and

heritage grant received by the Hurunui

District Council for earthquake repairs.

The total project included repairs to

all exterior and interiorplaster, anda

new roof.Amajoreffort has ensured the

ornate plaster ceiling remains afeature

of the main room.

Steelwork and bracing was fitted to

the ceiling, bringing the building up to 34

percent of the New Building Standard.

Hurunui district councillor Michael

Ward says restoration of the building will

benefit the community. ‘‘Yet it still

maintains its original charm,’’hesays.

The planned work was on budget, with

works delayed because ofCovid­19.

The Kowai Archive Society was

established in 1990 by members of the

Sefton­KowaiCountryWomen’s

Institute, to collect andpreserve

important local records. The Amberley

HistoricalSocietywas establishedinthe

1970sand amalgamatedwith the

archives in the early 90s.

Powerful ... Acelebratory morning tea was held by MainPower at its head office in Fernside last week for

recipients of the electricity company’s Community Fund.

PHOTO: SHELLEY TOPP

Funding recipients gather

By SHELLEY TOPP

This year’s MainPower

Community Fund recipients

have been treated to morning tea

by the North Canterbury

community­owned lines

company.

The morning tea was held at

the company’s head office in

Fernside last week.

All 67 groups that received a

donation from the fund during

the year were invited.

MainPower chief executive

Andy Lester said the company

could not hold acelebratory

event in April for recipients from

the first funding round because

of Covid­19.

‘‘What ayear it has been,’’ he

said.

‘‘We play an essential role in

keeping the region ticking, by

providing asafe, secure supply of

electricity to all our homes,

schools and businesses.

‘‘But we believe our

responsibility extends beyond

providing this, to being positive,

contributing members of all the

communities of North

Canterbury, and part of what we

do in this area is to provide

funding support to arange of

initiatives, events and projects in

the region.’’

The community fund was

established in 2015 and has

grown from one annual

funding round with $10,000

available to two funding rounds

this year, with atotal of $60,000

available.

‘‘In total we have supported

around 150 groups and schools,

which translates to alot of

positives for North Canterbury,’’

Mr Lester said.

All of the fund recipients are

decided by votes cast by North

Canterbury people.

‘‘The great thing about the

community fund for us is that it

gives our community achance to

have their say about where a

good portion of our sponsorship

funding is directed.

‘‘Here today we have groups

aimed at benefiting the region’s

youth, supporting our natural

environment and looking out for

our community’s most

vulnerable.

‘‘On behalf of MainPower, I’d

like to congratulate you all and

acknowledge the efforts behind

the work you do and the impact it

has.’’

Any new projects for the sitewill need to

be economically viableand attract visitors

to Kaikoura,hesays.

‘‘At the sametimethis is an opportunity

to create aspace for everyone to enjoy —

Once initial feedback has been received,

the council will seek expressionsof

interest. There is not expected to be any

construction on the site until towards the

end of nextyear or earlyin2022.

“We recognisedthat avisit to Wakatu

Quay and walking aroundthe wharf is an

activitythat manyfamilies enjoy over the

Christmas period, so we wantedtoensure

the sitewas open to the public in timefor

this,”MrSturgeonsays.

Pair pedal in support of farmers

By DAVID HILL

Two North Island farmers’

daughtersare riding the length

of the country to support

farmer mental health.

Ashlee Paulsenand Minna

Wilson cycled through North

Canterbury last weekontheir

journey from Cape Reingato

Blufftoraiseawareness of

farmer suicide.

‘‘We are both farmers’

daughtersand we grew up on

sheepand beeffarms in

central HawkesBay, so we are

awareabout ruralmental

health, but it’s not talked

about,’’Ashlee says.

‘‘Butsince we’vebeen on the

road so many peoplehave

come forwardand sharedtheir

stories.’’

The pair, who have been

closefriends since theywere

toddlers, decided to take time

out from their jobs.

Ashlee is aregistered nurse

at WaikatoHospital in

Hamilton, whileMinna is a

senior adviser in the Ministry

of Health’s Covid­19

Directorate in Wellington.

‘‘We decided to bikearound

the country and why not do it

for agreat cause?’’ Ashlee said.

‘‘I’ve been working on Covid

sinceFebruary, doing 10 to 12

hour days,sotoget this time

away from work has been

really good for our mental

health,’’Minna says.

The publicresponse has

beenoverwhelmingly positive,

aside from motorists at the top

of the North Island who were

lessthan friendly.

‘‘Weare having alot of fun

and meetinglots of people,’’

Ashlee says.

‘‘The people we’vemet in the

South Island havebeen so

friendly.’’

One highlight was getting

invited to speak to the children

at Kaihere School, asmall

rural school near Morrinsville.

‘‘They made us lunch.

‘‘It was so sweet and they

were so lovely.’’

While passing through North

Canterbury, the pair received a

mayoralreception from

Waimakariri Mayor Dan

Gordon and called into

Compass FM.

Thepair havebeen backed

by support crews, withAshlee’s

parentsproviding support

through the North Island and

Minna’s parents following

themthrough the South Island.

Along the journey,the pair

have beenraising funds for the

charity Surfing for Farmers.

‘‘It’s the perfectthing for

farmers,’’ Ashlee says.

‘‘They don’t havetotalk

about their feelings. They just

getout on the waves, have

some fun, meet otherfarmers,

andhave abarbecue.

‘‘Community is the most

important thing. Beingaround

peopleand making

connections.’’

On the road ... Ashlee Paulsen, left, and Minna Wilson stop off in

Environmentally friendly ... Kaikoura plains farmers have been working to reduce their environmental impact.

Environmental efforts pay off

By DAVID HILL

Kaikoura farmers are doing their bit for

their environment.

The Kaikoura Plains Recovery Project

team has been supporting landowners to

reduce their impact on the environment

as part of their recovery from the

November 2016 earthquake.

After the 2016 North Canterbury

earthquake, astudy was undertaken to

assess the damage, habitat, and health of

streams in Kaikoura’s Lyell Creek/

Staff and Management

would like to wish you averyMerry

Christmas and Happy New Year.

Waikoau catchment. ‘‘Critical source

areas’’ were identified, including newly

created springs, bank slumping, erosion

and 104 overland flow paths.

Project manager Jodie Hoggard says

managing these areas can be relatively

straightforward by starting small.

“Getting in touch with your local

Environment Canterbury (ECan) office

can be agood first step.

‘‘There are lots of people there ready

and willing to help you find good

methods for protecting our precious wai

(water).”

Such areas can include pugged areas,

raceways, stock crossings, and springs,

which often form in low­lying parts of

farms such as gullies.

They carried contaminants such as

nitrogen, phosphorus and sediment,

which impacts the water clarity, quality,

and freshwater biodiversity values.

By managing critical source areas,

sediment and nutrient loss can be

reduced and water quality improved.

It can also help farmers to meet good

management practice and the conditions

of their Farm Environment Plan.

The project has worked, with ECan

and local landowners showing on two

demonstration sites how simple

interventions such as fencing and

PHOTO: SUPPLIED

planting can reduce the impacts of

sedimentation and erosion.

One site was awetland area on asmall

sheep and beef farm on the Kaikoura

Flats. The work was undertaken on

about 1800 square metres and flows into

Warrens Creek.

The first step was to remove stock and

fence off the area to allow it to

regenerate, Mrs Hoggard said.

“By removing stock, we saw a

significant growth of cutty grass (Carex

geminata)which provides great filtering

qualities, stabilises banks, enhances

biodiversity and mahinga kai values,

and increases habitat for native bird and

animal species.”

Willow control was also completed.

The second site, Maghera farm, has

more than 3500 square metres of

waterways across 10 critical source

areas, making it one of the most

significant in the catchment.

The dairy farm sits alongside 507

metres of spring­fed stream flowing into

Lyell Creek/ Waikoau.

Acommunity planting day was

organised by ECan and Fonterra, and

more than 600 metres of fencing was

completed, with 500 sedges, shrubs and

trees planted to improve water quality

and biodiversity values.

Heat applied by Stove

crucial to win at Oxford

Ahalf­century and five­wicket haul by Oxford­

Rangiora all­rounder LachieStove helped guide his

side to a156­rundemolition of Cheviot in the latest

roundofcountry cricket at the weekend.

Stove’s stellar effortsecured Oxford­Rangiora a

needed win in the CRV Ambreed Country Premier

One Day 2020/21competition on Saturday,which

also saw top points forWeedons and Darfield.

The struggle for playerscontinued for embattled

Southbrook, whichwas forced to default for the

second week running. In doing so, it handed the

points, and aweekend off, to arch­rivalsSefton.

Decision rued

At Oxford’s PearsonPark, the visiting Cheviot

Magpies may have rued the decision to bowlfirst,

with the Oxford­RangioraXIrackingup211/9.

Afteraggressive opener JakeWaghorngot Oxford­

Rangiora off to aflyer with arun­a­ball39, it was

Stove, batting at No. 4, who did the mostdamage.

Stove, who joined Oxford­Rangiora this season

from Weedons,took the attacktoadepleted Cheviot

side,smashing66off 80 balls,including three sixes.

With his tailup, Stove then took the new ball to rip

through theCheviot top­order,takingaremarkable

five­wicket bag in justfour overs.

Mark Murphy’s wilyoff­spinners thenmopped up

the sorry Cheviotinnings, which capitulated to be

allout for 55 in just 18.5 overs.

Darfield’s momentum

At Lincoln Domain, the home team electedtobat

firstagainst Darfield,and wouldhave been happy

with its first­innings totalof211/6.

LincolnopenerHugh Paterson batted masterfully

and deservedacentury, falling just short on 97.

The Darfield chase, after losing Liam Foulkes

cheaply, got off to aflying start withNick Gilbert(23

and kept the momentum going, along with keeperbatsman

Alister Collins, who was alsonot out on 32

when Darfieldknockedoff the five­wicket win with

12.4 overs to spare.

Comfortable win

With competition leaders Leeston­Southbridge

having the bye,second­placed Weedonskept up the

pressure with afine 111­run victory over Ohoka.

At Weedons Domain, the home sideracked up an

imposing 274/7 in its first innings.

Set up by aquick 65 by opener Brad Nightingale,

Weedons got handy contributions throughoutthe

order, with61byCharlie Robsonand an unbeaten

45 off 38 ballsbyDevon Nightingale.

In reply, Ohoka never really lookedlike

challenging the big score, with too many batsmen

guilty of getting out aftermakingstarts.

Likeits batting effort, Weedonsworkedtogether

as aunit to strangle Ohokaand eventually bowl the

sideout for 163 in the 37thover to securea111­run

victory.

What’s happening in your

community…

Only Final Touches Remain for Ivory Street

The upgrade ofIvory Street is nearing completion.

Road resurfacing is finished and next steps include

installing traffic islands, road marking, and painting

the islands and cycle lane.

Anew pedestrian refuge island will be installed

just north of the Collins Street intersection and

three pedestrian islands will be reinstated at

their previous locations at the Queen Street

intersection, outside 58 Ivory Street and 45 Ivory

Street.

Senior Engineering Advisor Don Young says, “We

really appreciate the work has been noisy and

difficult for residents for some months now -

specifically the recent night works. Unfortunately,

night time was the only option for this work due to

the busyness of the road.”

Next week we will complete road marking with

the painting of the islands and have acycle lane

coming in early January.

Installation of the traffic islands started on8

December and continues for 2-3 nights, although

this is weather dependant. The timing of works

is from 3am to 7am on Ivory Street, and 3am to

10am on Queen Street. The construction will be

completed during this time to minimise disruption

to traffic and local businesses.

Ivory Street will be one lane during these hours,

with stop/go traffic management and atemporary

speed limit of 30km will also be in place.

Queen Street will be closed from the Ivory Street

intersection back to the KFC entrance during

installation of the pedestrian refuge island.

Feedback Sought on New Features for

Millton Memorial Park

The Council are asking the community to share

“The dra plan gives an idea of what it could look

like and the proposed location of the different

features. We’re looking forward to getting

Grant MacLeod, Council’s Greenspace Manager.

Millton Memorial Park is areserve that currently

includes the Rangiora Dog Park, Croquet and Table

Bowls, Park &Ride and alarge area of leased
