Mixed

reaction

to school

proposal

By DAVID HILL

Anew North Canterbury high school is

unlikely to make it on to the drawing board

anytime soon.

The possibility of factoring in anew high

school in the town centre at Ravenswood

was suggested by MP Matt Doocey in

response to the region’s strong growth

(North Canterbury News,January 14).

In his regular column, Mr Doocey said

continuing growth in the eastern portion of

the electorate posed the question of whether

anew high school should be factored into

the Ravenswood town centre strategy.

However, the idea has yet to gain traction.

The Ministry of Education, responding to

Mr Doocey’s comments, said the

Waimakariri district was able to handle a

growing secondary school student

population.

Sector enablement and support acting

deputy secretary Jann Marshall says the five

secondary education providers in the

Waimakariri district are ‘‘well­placed to

accommodate their student population’’.

The schools include Kaiapoi and

Rangiora high schools, Oxford Area School,

Rangiora New Life School and acampus of

One School Global on Lehmans Rd,

Rangiora.

Both Rangiora and Kaiapoi high schools

have capacity to accommodate increased

school rolls to allow for anticipated growth

in the eastern district, Ms Marshall says.

show organiser Craig Stare feared

Covid­19 would stall thisyear’s event

when entries were opened.

But the global pandemic seemed a

distant concern last weekend as huge

crowds packedinto Rangiora’s A&P

Showgrounds for the two­day annual

event.

‘‘We beatCovidthis year, but next

year who knows,’’Craigsaid.‘‘Saturday

was abig day, not arecord crowd,and

Sunday was abit down, but overall it

was as goodasyou could expectunder

the circumstances.’’

About1300 cars of all shapes, sizes

and condition were parked around the

grounds.

They camefrom all over New

Zealand, including Ruakaka in the Far

North to Stewart Islandinthe Deep

South.

Saturday’spopularRetro Rockabilly

Pageant attractedalarge, enthusiastic

crowd, but the hottest placetobefor

many was the burnout pad. The crowd

was10deep in placesaround the pad

on Saturday.

Theshow’s star was Martin and

called Uncertain T, parkedinits own

marquee. However, aclose secondwas

Shane builtthe ‘‘mouserod’’,

‘‘best creation’’ at the showbecausehe

wanted somethingfor children to

enjoy. He was not able to be at the show

but his brother, Jason, and Jason’s

partner, Shelley Clark, brought it north

for the show.

Jasonsaid Muscle Car Madness was

afamily­oriented showwith many

childrenattending, but most vehicles

were not allowed to be touched.

‘‘Kids love to touchand feel things,’’

he said. ‘‘SoShane decided to builda

Jim Palmer’s lastWaimakaririDistrict

Council Long TermPlan hasproven to be

the mostchallenging.

The outgoing chiefexecutive, speaking

at Tuesday’s openingdeliberationsonthe

there wereuncertaintiesfacing all

communities in New Zealand,

particularlyurban areas.

‘‘It’ssomething we willhavetoconsider

‘‘Theremay evenbeanimpact when

‘‘There’s already somesoftening in the

The council’sfinance andbusiness

beendifficulttowrite,amidthe

uncertaintyfacing the region.

‘‘This is probablythe mostuncertain

of 2020/21,but down on previousyears.

Therise reflects inflation, anda1%rise

‘‘Looking at othercouncils, I’m not

seeinganything as low as this,’’Mr

Millward said.

‘‘Theyearof1.5%from Covid is having

an impact,and this (3.9%)doesn’t include

theopt­in option for kerbside waste

collection.’’

Based on data fromStatisticsNew

It is expected to riseto78,400 in 2031

and hit100,000 by 2051.

By SHELLEY TOPP

Vandals have destroyed a

small commemorative tree

planted by Cust/West

Eyreton Garden Club

members.

The flowering dogwood

tree, donated by Cust’s

Querky Style and Roses, was

planted in the Jack Graham

Reserve in the Cust

Community Centre grounds

last October to mark the

club’s 70th anniversary.

Club committee member

Anna White, of Oxford, said

the tree had been snapped

off and the top half

discarded.

‘‘It is very disappointing

for this to happen. We had

such alovely day during the

planting ceremony.’’

The tree was vandalised

early in the New Year and

was reported to the

council’s Greenspace team.

It will replace the tree later

this year.

The council’s parks and

community assets officer,

Greg Barnard, said it was

disappointing to lose the

tree. ‘‘It was in aperfect spot

and areally nice tree.’’

the tree last October.

‘‘They just jumpedthe

‘‘I was watching a

smoke. WhenIwent

right there.’’

‘‘It was huge, and

there werepeople

says Nikki,who initially

thoughtahouse overthe

later realiseditwas a

‘‘Icould see the

Nikki was evacuated

‘‘pretty quickly’’, and

wasnot allowed home

Shewas ‘‘dumbfounded’’

over what to

her Kain Street house.

‘‘I got the dog and dog

Church restoration begins

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Cracked and battered,StPaul’s Anglican

Church at Glenmark has sat emptyand

forlorn for adecade.

The church,which has served the

communitysince 1905, was red­stickered

afterthe 2010 Canterbury earthquakes.

Burglars, vandals, weather,rats and

pigeonshave taken theirtoll, with the

church left vulnerablewith cracks to a

wall,damagetothe bell tower and an

entranceway fallingaway fromthe

building.Now, its restoration hasbegun.

Threeworking bees paved the wayfor

RPC Construction to moveinand take over

the site. The first saw vegetation cleared

around the building. At the second, all

screws were removed from pews,while a

thirdgot the furniture intostorage.

The windowswere removed 18 months

ago and are now with an expertrestorer.

The 1906 Normanand Beardorgan,

from England, is alsoonthe move. It rose

skyward on the south wall whichwas badly

damaged in the quakes. It is the firsttime

it has had to leave the south transept.

It is headedfor Timarutobeoverhauled

by the South IslandOrgan Co. Asound can

stillbecoaxed from the organ, whichfor

many years was consideredthe best in the

southern hemisphere, and one of the

largest in acountry church.

All hands on deck ... The heavy reredos, an ornamental screen covering the wall at the

back of the altar, is finally extracted.

PHOTOS: SUPPLIED

It remainedingreat order thanksto

frequent visits from atunerfrom Timaru.

The chairman of the Friendsofthe

Glenmark Church, Andy Munro, said there

wasafair bit of heavy lifting involved in

stripping the interior, with acouple of the

longer pews having to be cut in two.

Attentionisnow beingturned to finding

theremainder of the funds to completethe

church restoration. While there is no

definitive figure stillneedingtoberaised,

he hopes it canbekept to around $200,000

to $300,000.

Thekitty currentlystands at $1.65

million,asubstantialportion of which

came from the New Zealand Lottery

Grants Board.

‘‘It is ahuge relieftoget the project

started,’’ Mr Munro says.‘‘There are not

too many brick buildingsleft after the

earthquakes. Alot were demolished.’’

St Paul’s was consecrated in 1907 with

thebuilding, organ,churchfurniture and

bells costing about £8000. Theywere agift

to the parish by MrsTownendinmemory

of her father, Mr George Henry Moore,

whoestablishedGlenmark Estate.

Tune­up ... The 1906 Norman and Beard

organ is off for restoration.

Town eyes visitor opportunities

By DAVID HILL

Kaiapoi businesses

anticipate abusy year, after

an uncertain 2020.

The Kaiapoi Promotions

Association (KPA) hopes to

cash in this year on the river

town’s growing popularity as

adestination for

Christchurch and Selwyn

residents.

With the recent opening of

the Christchurch Northern

Corridor cycleway and the

freedoms being enjoyed

under alert level 1, KPA

business manager Martyn

Cook is keen to press on with

projects delayed by Covid­19.

The Destination Kaiapoi

Collective, ajoint initiative

between KPA and local

businesses to promote the

town, was ‘‘stalled through

Covid’’ but will have a

renewed energy this year, Mr

Cook says.

‘‘It’s still an important

initiative because, despite

the local economy surviving

well through the Covid crisis,

there’s alot of data

suggesting it won’t continue.

‘‘It’s an initiative to put

something in place to help

our businesses to be seen,

particularly in

Christchurch.’’

KPA plans to continue

working alongside

Enterprise North Canterbury

to implement the new

Waimakariri Visitor Strategy

and to push for funding for

the proposed Wheels to

Day trippers ... Kaiapoi’s popularity as adestination is likely to grow this year, with more visitors from

Christchurch and Selwyn.

PHOTO: DESTINATION KAIAPOI

Waipara cycleway project.

Conversations have also

begun with Environment

Canterbury to reinstate

mountainbike tracks around

Kaiapoi, which could bring a

new group of visitors to town,

alongside the new northern

corridor cycleway.

‘‘We see cyclists all over the

place now, so there are plenty

of opportunities for this to

grow to support our

businesses,’’ Mr Cook says.

KPA will be watching the

Waimakariri District

Council’s Long Term Plan

process with interest,

particularly conversations

around the future of the

Hilton Street site used for the

Kaiapoi Christmas Carnival.

‘‘The council is looking at

proposals for that site and it

has stipulated that it wants a

village green or market space

as part of that proposal.

‘‘Once we know what space

we’ve got, we can fill it the

best way we can.’’

The KPA is also looking at

adding an event for Kaiapoi,

with the prospect of a

buskers’ festival in April.

‘‘We’re looking at acutdown

version of the old

Christchurch Buskers’

Festival, featuring local

Canterbury street

performers, which people

will be familiar with from the

Santa parades and other

community events.

‘‘All Together Kaiapoi does

an awesome job at running

events, so we are looking at

how we can augment those

events and, in particular, the

big ones.’’

Mr Cook sees the Kaiapoi

River Carnival, abuskers

festival and the Kaiapoi

Christmas Carnival as

potentially being three iconic

events for the river town, with

many smaller events in

between.

MAYOR CRAIG MACKLE

Nervousness over

the year ahead

Welcome to 2021 everyone. Ihope you

had ahappy holiday season and enjoyed

time with friends and family over

Christmas.

It was great to see the influx of tourists

over the Christmas period.

While there is asense of nervousness

on how the rest of the year will play out,

the Mayors Taskforce for Jobs coordinator,

Sean Madden, has been

working with local businesses,

identifying potential apprenticeships

and employment opportunities for

community members whose jobs have

been affected by Covid­19.

Sean is currently working with 90

clients. Forty casual jobs and 16 fulltime

jobs have been filled since the funding

was announced in August 2020.

This is agreat result and Iurge anyone

looking for work to get in touch with

Sean through Te Hao Matauranga.

The Kaikoura District Council,

runanga, Department of Conservation,

Environment Canterbury, and

neighbouring councils have been

working together to investigate

possibilities for the next stage of the

Jobs for Nature funding.

This joint approach considers the

issues and opportunities facing the

greater region, from the Hurunui to

Marlborough.

There is an awful lot of work going on

behind the scenes at the council.

The team is busy working on the Long­

Term Plan, District Plan and Waste

Management and Minimisation Plan.

This is ahuge amount of work, even for

alarge council, but especially for one as

small as ours.

While there are several unknowns for

our district, including the proposed

water reforms and Covid­19, one of the

advantages of our small team is the

ability to adapt and respond to changing

circumstances, as shown by our reaction

and successful rebuild after the

earthquakes.

Chief executive Angela Oosthuizen

will have her last day on Friday and I

would like to extend my sincere thanks

for all that she and her team have done

to get the district where it is today, after

some huge hurdles.

These are uncertain times and while it

is not easy for many businesses out

there, Ihope you find some time to relax

and connect with friends while the

weather is good.

The need for the `magic fertiliser'

DearEditor,

Hurunui MayorMarie Blackraises

the subject of wasting water by making

the pertinentpoint that 98 percent of

our alpine­fed flow goes straight outto

sea.

Fromababe in arms it seemsmylife

has revolved around water —the lack of

it.

My father came to Waipara in 1935

and his dream of harnessing thatwater

thatcould so easily be stored in Lake

Sumner cameasalegacy. So I’m hoping

thatwhen I’m gone the fire won’t go out.

Iknow fromon­the­ground

experience that it is what Iterm the

magic fertiliser —all else is adream

without it.

My experimentalcroppinginthe

1970s proved it. Who can imagine 33

tonnes of tomatoes offtwo acres? And

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

very successfultrial crops?The local

I’ve been toldbywitnesses that the

late Sir Max Smith had abig file on

harnessingLake Sumner.Ifear he

added it to abonfire (which Ifilmed) out

of sheer frustration withbureaucracy.

The wholesouthern Hurunui area has

available the very bestwater sourcethat

naturecan supply for towns, electricity

and irrigation—all by gravity.

It is way past time that MainPower got

ECan considers options to

open up land for housing

By ROBYN BRISTOW

More land for housing in Rangiora and

Kaiapoi is under the spotlight.

Environment Canterbury is

considering rezoning more land for

housing in the two North Canterbury

towns, and also Rolleston, to help

meet future demand.

Growth scenarios for the region

show there is unlikely to be enough

land for housing in the Waimakariri

and Selwyn districts in the medium

and long term —10to30years.

ECan proposes achange to Chapter

6ofthe Canterbury Regional Policy

Statement that will enable councils to

develop plans and consult with

communities on additional land for

housing, through district planning

processes.

The targeted change will identify

future development areas for urban

housing in Rangiora, Kaiapoi and

Rolleston, and provide guidance for

councils when re­zoning land.

It was notified on January 16 as part

of astreamlined planning process,

with the public able to have asay up

until 5pm on Monday, February 15.

ECan’s director strategy and

planning, Katherine Trought, says the

month­long submission process gives

everyone an opportunity to look at the

proposed change and have asay about

the future of housing development in

greater Christchurch.

“Once the submission period is over,

we will carefully consider all the

comments we receive and deliver a

report to the Minister for the

Growth pains ... There is unlikelytobe

enough land for housing in the Waimakariri

and Selwyn districts in the mediumtolong

term.

Environment that will show how the

submissions have been considered

and any recommended changes.”

To make awritten submission, view

the proposed change, and find further

information about the planning

process, go to ECan’s Have Your Say

page on its website.

New JP clinic in Kaiapoi

Kaiapoi is set to offer anew weekend

justice of the peace service.

The Kaiapoi Library will host a

weekly JP clinic from this Saturday,

January 30, from 10am to 12pm,

alongside its weekly Tuesday clinic.

Kaiapoi justice of the peace Neill

Price says the clinic will be open to

anybody from North Canterbury and

will take the pressure off local JPs.

‘‘It’s surprising how many enquiries

we get at night and at weekends, so we

are going to make it available with the

very good co­operation of the staff at

the library.’’

Kaiapoi has at least 15 justices of the

peace who are qualified to perform a

variety of tasks, including witnessing

signatures on documents, certifying

copies of original documents,

confirming identities and taking oaths,

declarations, affidavits and

affirmations, Mr Price says.

Other duties include filling out

dissolution of marriage documents and

assisting with foreign documents.

Being ajustice of the peace is

voluntary, with prospective JPs filling

out anomination form from their local

MP’s office, then going through an

interview process before training is

provided.

If successful, JPs are then sworn in by

adistrict court judge and issued with a

ministerial manual, stamps and abible,

Mr Price says.

Buyers fromaround the

countrycompeted strongly for

the 3444 Wiltshires on offer,

reflectingthe growing interest

in the low­input, shedding

Alongside the Mt Cassrams,

lambs, two­tooth and annual

draft ewes on offer were twotooth

The station’s ewe lambs

Mt Cass’s 48 rams all sold

The Mt Cass shareholders

said they could not be happier

“Stock are being trucked to

They saidthe sale wasa

‘‘Ourteam is buzzingwith

Mt Cass covers 1800 hectares

of hill countrynear Waipara.

The Wiltshires, with their

inherent internal parasite

resistance and resilience,

come into theirown in the

farm’s low­input, organic

system.

The sheep do not need

shearing, dagging or crutching,

and they do not get flystrike.

Thisresults in significant

savings in shearing,labour and

agrichemical costs.

Mt Cass started its Wiltshire

studtomeet agrowing demand

for the genetics, and the shareholders

saythere has been

growing interestinWiltshires

fromfarmers frustrated by

ongoing depressed wool prices

and the work associated with

woolproduction.

The progressiontoanoshearflock

is quiterapid and,

withinacouple of generations,

crutching, dippingand

flystrike is eliminated. Within

three to four generations, so

too is shearing.

While theydonot produce

wool, the Wiltshireare good

About 40% of the Mt Cass

lamb crop is sold prime pre­

AMBERLEY LIONS SURFCASTING COMPETITION

10 The North Canterbury News, January 28, 2021

Big fish prove elusive in fishing contest

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Fishytales and camaraderie were in

abundance at the Amberley Lions

Surfcasting Competition on Sunday.

Atotal of 250 fishers registered, 41 of

them children. It was the second largest

number of registrations in the event’s

28­year history. Unfortunately not many

fish came to the party during the contest at

Amberley Beach, organised by the

Amberley and District Lions Club.

Fishing was poor compared to last year,

but it didn’t deter fishers wholined the

beachfor 3.2km to lure the longest fish,

and snare the $1000 top senior prize.

In the end, that honour went to Ben

McGill with a980mm stingray. Felix

Anderson won the junior title with a

653mmdogfish.

Alan Rhodes, of Rangiora, who usually

goes net fishing in the estuary, decided to

enterfor fun. ‘‘But,Ithink Iamjust

feeding the crabs,’’ he said. ‘‘I havecaught

areal collection of them.’’

Dean Lamport of Christchurch last

enteredback in the 90s.Heboughtnew

gear,but it did notseem to help.

The Walkerfamily, 17 in in total,had a

greatday at the beach, with two of them

fishing while the kids enjoyed the surf.

End of an era ... Workers dismantle signage from Waimakariri MP Matt Doocey’s

electorate office at 156B Williams Street to make way for the opening of anew office

close to the Kaiapoi Marina.

PHOTOS:SUPPLIED

Old MPs’ office has

many stories to tell

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Amove to anew Kaiapoi premises

has Waimakariri MP Matt Doocey

taking awalk back in time.

Kaiapoi residents have been

coming through the shop front of

156B Williams Street for help from

their local MP since Mike Moore

first set up the office in 1996.

But Mr Doocey is breaking with

tradition and moving to anew office

closer to the river.

He says the move to the heart of

Kaiapoi is part of achange to reflect

the river town’s exciting and vibrant

new spaces.

Over the years, 156B has housed

four members of Parliament, who

settled into the space with very little

change, except for achange in party

affiliation.

‘‘The baton has been passed from

Mike Moore to Clayton Cosgrove to

Kate Wilkinson, and Imoved in after

being elected in 2014.’’

Mr Doocey said, when packing

began, the team became aware of an

old sticker on the shared power

board that is still labelled for Mike

Moore.

‘‘An old press cutting dated

October 16, 1996, announces the

start of the very first three­year MP

lease, to cover the parliamentary

term.’’

Mr Doocey says he is looking

forward to welcoming residents to

his new office.

‘‘While we wait for the fitout to be

completed, residents can continue

calling (03) 327 0514 for assistance,”

he says.

Ghost from past... Asticker on the power

board still refers to formerMPMikeMoore.

Big plans for sports hub

An updated clubhouse,

recreational tracks and

extensive landscaping are part of

an ambitious 20­year strategic

plan for the Mandeville Sports

Club’s 80­hectare home.

Club chairwoman Anne

Prattley says the reserve is an

integral part of the growing

community and provides quality

sport and recreation facilities for

the Waimakariri District.

It caters for 13 sports and

leisure clubs, and hosts some of

North Canterbury’s biggest

annual community events.

Despite this, many people still

didn’t know it existed.

‘‘We need to let people know

we are here, what clubs we have,

and that we provide awelcoming

space for the community to

enjoy,’’ she says.

The strategic plan has been

compiled by NTM Consulting

with the support of Sport

Canterbury, the Rata

Foundation, the Waimakariri

District Council and the clubs

based at the grounds.

The club hopes it will help the

reserve, which is owned by the

council, become self­funding.

Toys libraries offer

affordable option

Toy libraries are alow­cost way for

families to access the latest toys.

There are active toy libraries all

over North Canterbury that are run by

volunteers. They allow families to

borrow toys without the big expense.

The Kaiapoi Toy Library is open on

Saturdays from 10.30am to 12.30pm

and offers two levels of membership,

depending on whether parents have

time to help with library duties.

Toy hire is free once families have

paid their annual subscription,

committee member Erin Harvie says.

‘‘We’re alittle bit unusual because

we don’t charge an additional fee for

toy hire, which makes it abit easier for

families.

‘‘And we are open during the school

holidays, except over the Christmas

period.’’

The Kaiapoi Toy Library also has a

bouncy castle, and party packs are

available for hire to help with

children’s birthday parties.

Facebook page, send an email to

Major development ... An artist’s impression of The Sterling village at Silverstream,

Kaiapoi. Construction is expected to start this year.

IMAGE: SUPPLIED

Kaiapoi village to be

built in seven stages

Land­use consent has been granted to

Lime Living Ltd to establish and operate

aretirement village in Silverstream,

Kaiapoi.

The Sterling Village will be built in

seven stages, starting this year, with the

first residents expected in the second

half of the year.

The first stage will incorporate 18

villas and atemporary community

centre, along with the main reserve and

green spaces.

When complete, The Sterling will

spread over seven hectares, and offer 76

independent living villas, 267

apartments, 48 residential care beds,

and 36 memory care beds.

The existing Silverstream amenities

such as the cafe, hairdresser and

medical centre are all just ashort walk

away.

Lime Living Ltd is the parent company

responsible for managing its delivery.

It was established by Alan Edwards,

Fred Rahme and Jack Lin, who have

backgrounds in aged care, urban

planning and residential development.

Mr Rahme, aLime Living director,

says they are not just creating a

retirement village.

‘‘Through our architectural detailing

and bespoke design, we will create a

five­star village that raises the bar on

aged care in New Zealand.’’

Mr Lin, also acompany director, says

their first principle is to create avillage

connected to awider community, that is

safe and secure, and where residents

always have avoice —‘‘a village where

we would be happy for our mums to

live”.

Collaborating with internationally

renowned architecture firm Marchese

Partners means The Sterling will push

the boundaries in terms of quality and

design.

Marchese Partners has more than 15

years of experience creating awardwinning,

landmark aged­care facilities

throughout Australia, Asia and Britain.

The Sterling will promote community,

connection and choice. This emphasis

will ensure every resident lives as

independently as they choose, to select

services and care when needed, but

always being independent in making

those decisions for themselves.

Mr Edwards, who is Sterling chairman

and executive director, says they will

ensure every resident is central to the

decision­making about what care is

required and when it is required, so

people can live with the level of

independence they desire.

thinking about the wrong things.

‘‘In away it’s luckyfor us in farming,as

it didn’t reallyaffect us as much. But for

youngpeople, we couldn’t see our

friends.’’

Mr Watts, abusy ruralcontractor, says

her thing,really,’’ Mr Burrows

said.

‘‘I’m astickler for the Dorset

Downs really,but they’ve all

got their attributes.

‘‘The Southdowns, we sella

lot of them for hogget mating

and they’re going really well.

‘‘We’vegot asheep conveyor

business and alot of placeswe

go to use Suffolks.’’

The Suffolk stud has been

establishedfor 13­month­old

daughter Holly.

Stud sheep are in Mr

Burrow’s blood, as his father

Tom Burrows, the New

Zealand Sheepbreeders’

Association president, has

been breeding sheep since the

1970sand his great­uncle Tug

Burrows wasawell­known

Corriedale breeder.

Mr Burrows said he was

pleased to be back to showing

sheepand catching up with

farmers, afterseveral shows

were cancelledlast year

because of Covid­19.

‘‘We’ve got ayear to catch up

on now and have alook at

everyone else’ssheep.

‘‘We wereathome lookingat

our sheepthe wholetime,’’he

said.

SheepconvenorDave

he looksforward to attending club events.

‘‘I’m seven daysoncall, all day every

day, so YoungFarmersissomething I

make an efforttoget along to.

‘‘There’s people Iwant to see and the

job isn’t that importantthatIcan’t have

time to myself.’’

The clubhad its first meetingfor the

year earlierthis month and hopes to get

back to hosting ayoung farmers’ ball,

havingsome trips away and supporting

local community events.

Members were keen to get backto

hosting monthly‘‘funtivities’’,beginning

with anight at the races last week.

‘‘Hopefully we will do aWest Coast trip

and aNorthIslandtrip for the National

Fieldays, if it doesn’t get cancelled,’’ Mr

Watts says.

Butterick said he was pleased

withthe response, after an

uncertainyear.

While entries were down

compared to lastJanuary,

there was no feature breed this

time, which tended to boost

entries.

‘‘Last year was one to forget,

so it’s just good to get back to

having some shows.’’

Southdown sheep entries

werestrong, whilethe black

and colouredsheepclasses

werewell­supported.

There werealso good

numbers of Poll Dorsets and

Suffolks, Mr Buttericksaid.

Anew social activity the club will trial

this year is trying out different businesses

forameal and acatch­up.

Ayoung farmers’ ball was hosted by the

club two years ago,but had to be

cancelled lastyear becauseofCovid­19,

Mr Watts said.

‘‘We’rehoping to run aball in April and

we want to get at least 100people. It’s a

fun night outand young farmers’ balls

used to happenall the time.’’

The PendarvesYFC in Mid­Canterbury

hosts an annual‘‘after harvestball’’, while

theDunsandel club has held one in

recentyears, ‘‘so hopefully we can havea

bitofaball season’’.

Theclub also plans to support community

eventssuch as the SwannanoaFair

and the Oxfordand Rangiora A&P Shows.

Sefton consolidates lead

at top of country cricket

Weedons squeaked athrillingonewicket

Therewere also hard­earned

victories for Darfieldand Ohoka,

whileSefton thumped adepleted

Leeston­Southbridge to consolidate

its lead at the top of theCRV

Ambreed CountryPremier One Day

2020/21 competition.

Lincoln won the tossand elected to

bat on its home domain,but was soon

rueing the decision when Arnav Deb

struck withhis secondball.

They were theninall sorts of

trouble at 34/6, when Deb, the

competition’stop wicket­takerwith

bag of the season.

Abattling unbeaten 36 from 86

ballsfrom Hugh Patersonhelped

Lincoln to post108 before the side

was bowled out in the 42ndover.

The tiny total proved areal

challengefor Weedons, losing

wickets throughout its chase.

Akshan and Akshay Gulati bowled

tightly to combine for fourwickets,

whileEdgar Patersonchipped out

threemore, and when Weedons’

ninthwicketfell, it still needed11

runs for victory.

The cool head of Charlie Robson

steered Weedons home, with an

unbeaten knockof22off 43 ballsto

claimthe win in the 33rd over.

But KyleBrown, returning to topflight

from just 43 balls to lift Ohoka over

put to the sword by Smith, who

scored 107 off just 58 balls. The

remarkable84­minute innings

included ninefours and eight sixes.

Developing

mindfulness

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Matt Chisholm will discuss

the challenges of depression

at the Waiau Town Hall on

April 10.

The former television

personality, whose two­part

documentary Man Enough

aired last year, will share why

he set out on anationwide

campaign to smash the stigma

around mental health and

break the silence around

suicide.

Matt is sharing his insights

to help men become better

connected and to speak out

about their mental health.

He visited rugby clubs,

construction sites,

boardrooms, men’s

barbershops and boxing

gyms, and presents a

thoughtful investigation into

the health of modern Kiwi

men.

The event is being hosted

by the Community Response

Committee, which was

formed after the Covid­19

lockdown last year.

The committee, which

operates under the umbrella

of the Amuri Community

Trust, has been fortunate to

receive further funding from

the Ministry of Social

Development to continue its

work connecting people in

communities in the Amuri

district, and to help with their

health awellbeing.

WHY CHRISTADELPHIANS

BELIEVE IN THE HOPE

OF ISRAEL

Jesus Christ of the New Testament was aJew

borninIsrael. The historical kingdom of God

was reigned over by King David, in Israel, but

through unfaithful descendants was overturned

until he (Jesus Christ) would come whose right

it is to reign as King. Arighteous King ruling

over the Earth guiding all in his Father’sways.
