Following thedeathsof their

Distress, frustration over tyre fire

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The latesttyre fire near Amberley has

left land­owner WarrenHislop and

his long­timesupporter Angelique

Hyde distraught.

‘‘It’s soul destroying,’’Angelique

says.‘‘Heisdistraught, Iam

distraught. Thiswill destroy us and it

is not of our doing.’’

She was at work withadigger at the

RacecourseRoad site on Tuesday,

with the authority of Environment

Canterbury, preparing the site before

dirt,then clay is piled on the tyre

remains to smother the fire.

‘‘This is goingtocost amillion

dollars, plus.How is one person

supposed to come up with that sortof

moneywithout goingbankrupt?

‘‘We didn’t do this. We didn’t do any

of it, but we cop the lot.’’

Despite the cost she is committed to

cleaning up the mess left behind by

the fire in the pileofabout160,000

tyres. ‘‘I said we woulddoit, and we

will.’’

She is angry the fire occurred just

weeksbefore gettingrid of the tyres.

ECan northernzone manager

Andrew Arps says the tyres are now a

pile of ash and wire, and the smoke

mostly grey.Two or three pockets

Police are investigating afire in

Rangiora’sLilybrook Reserve

last Sunday.

Kaiapoi­based Constable Mark

Stewart said at this stage it was

not known how it started.

However, the police were

following acouple of lines of

inquiry.

The fire began about5.40pm. It

damaged asmall sectionofbush

and sent plumes of blacksmoke

abovethe reserve, on the corner

of Percival and Victoria streets.

Two fire enginesfrom the

Rangiora brigade putitout

within 15 minutes.

Brigade chief fireofficer

Hamish Peter said two engines

were sent to the fire because of

the homes nearby. Early

notification from the public was

crucial in getting it undercontrol

so quickly.

The cause is unknown at this

stage, he said.

‘‘It is borderingonsuspicious.

Ican’t confirm that, but there is

no reason for afire to have

started in areservelike this.’’

He is also gutted afterspending

hourshelping findasolution, which

involved sending the tyres to Golden

Bay Cement WorksatWhangarei, for

use in its furnaces. The final step,

funding, was just weeksaway. While

this workwas now futile for these

tyres, he is optimistic it will benefit

others in the SouthIsland.

ThereisamachineinChristchurch

that can chip the tyres, for transport

northtothe cement works.The chips

hold aconsistently high temperature

in the furnaces, whichalso burns the

toxins.

‘‘They can burn up to 7500 tyresa

day, and couldbuild up to 15,000

depending on how much volume they

needed to produceatthe works.’’

Meanwhile,ECan is addressing

community concernsraised at a

meeting last Saturday night, where

winemakers,lifestyle block owners,

and residents aired their frustration.

The tyres should have been removed

yearsago, they said. Testingwill

determine the effects.

Bruce’senthusiasm never waned

one last time on Saturday

night.

The humble 83­year­old,

who servedthe brigade and

the district for 57 years,woreit

to his farewell.

His service,alongwiththat

of Jim Forbes,who has served

25 years with thebrigade, was

celebrated at aspecial

Bruce, whoseattendance

recordisinthe high 90

percent, is one of an elite

group in NewZealandwho

havereceived adouble gold

local brigade.

He officiallyretiredlastJuly

after Covid­19protocols

prematurely sidelined him, as

no­oneover 70 was allowed on

active duty. But thebrigade,

which he joined in 1963,was

determined to acknowledge

his service.

He hadnodesire to move up

his fellowbrigade members,

and enjoy their company.

‘‘I didn’t play sport so it (the

brigade)was my interest,’’ he

says.

His practical,easy manner

Mayor praises prudent nature of plan

By DAVID HILL

The Waimakariri District Council’s draft

Long Term Plan (LTP) offersaprudent

and responsible budget,Mayor Dan

Gordon says.

Councillors, who considered the LTP

last week, settled on aproposed 3.95

percent average rates rise, slightly higher

than the 3.9% signalled by council staff.

‘‘I’mreally pleasedwith where we

endedupand Ithinkwhat we are

presenting over this 10­yearperiodisa

prudent and responsiblebudget,’’ Mr

Gordon says.

The council’sStandard and Poor’s

credit ratingannounced this week shows

the district has retained its credit ratingof

AA/A­1+ ‘‘with astable outlook’’.

It has giventhe council confidence it is

heading in the rightdirection, Mr Gordon

says.‘‘There is ahigher degreeof

confidence in New Zealand, so we are very

fortunatecomparedtoothercountries.’’

The budget for the 2021/22financial year

includes funding for land purchasesin

Pegasusand Ravenswood, andanew

grittedfootpathinTuahiwi.

Councillors agreed to set aside $1.8

milliontopurchase landinPegasus this

year and earmarked$2.7m fora

community centre in 2024­25.

Afurther $1.8m was budgeted to buy

land for aproposed community facility in

Ravenswood, likely to include alibrary.

The facility, earmarked for 2029, hasa

price tag of $4.8m.

While refurbishment and strengthening

work is continuing in the Rangiora Civic

Precinct, planned extensions to the

building and to the Trevor InchMemorial

Libraryhave beenpostponed to 2028.

In the meantime, work is being done to

upgradesome elements, including

flooring, layout, heating and ventilation.

‘‘Butinthe current climate with

uncertainty around Covid­19 and the

three­waters reform, we didn’t think it was

an appropriate time to plan anew building

or extension.’’

More Rangiora parking is proposed for

the Blake Street car park,Durham Street,

Kerr Street, and at an undecided location,

to provide around500 extracar­parks over

the next decade.

Kaiapoi is also settobenefit, with

$435,000 set aside in 2021/22for the

proposed Kaiapoi Hub to be developed in

the formerred zone, southofthe river.

Afurther $200,000 hasbeen set aside for

the 2023/24 financial yeartoassist the

Sefton Community Halldevelopment.

Councillors will meet again on February

23 to adopt the draft 2021/31LTP, before it

goesout for consultation in March.

Quay ideas

The Kaikoura District Council is

seeking ideas from the community for

how Wakatu Quay can be developed.

The council received $9.88million

last year from the Provincial Growth

Fund to redevelop the quay and a

further $1m for afeasibility study for

development of South Bay’s harbour.

The Kaikoura Marine Development

Project has now reached the design

concept phase, with feedback closing

on Friday, February 12.

The governance group overseeing

the project aims to create adevelopment

which celebrates the cultural

history and unique identity of the site.

It is also keen to provide

opportunities for economic growth and

community gathering spaces.

The quay was built in the early 1900s

for £7762. It served mostly as ahub for

commercial fishing­related activities.

By 2016 it housed acommunity­run

aquarium and paua processing plant.

Over the years the buildings

deteriorated. The council hopes to

release project designs by mid­year,

with construction to start in ayear.

Bonanza at pools

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Business is boomingatthe Hanmer

Springs Thermal Poolsand Spa. It has

enjoyed arecord Christmas­January

season.

The pools had its highestever number

of consumers in the 37 days from

Christmas to the end of January, general

manager GraemeAbbot said.

This represented 2percent growth

over the sameperiod last year—and

‘‘last yearwas out biggestyear’’.

‘‘We are rapt.Very happy and

somewhatrelieved.’’

The pools generateda$1,865,142

surplus for the six months to December

31, instead of the budgeted $1m deficit.

However, it had to be viewedinthe

context of budgetinginthe middle of the

Covid­19 lockdown.

The surplus had to be tempered with

reduced hours for alarge part of the

time,which reducedoperating and staff

costs. At the same time, repairsand

renewals were cut back.

‘‘I am delighted the assumptions we

made at that timeproved to be

incorrect.’’ People came backindroves

to the poolsafter lockdown, he said.

This generated growth in numbers

and revenue. ‘‘We thought therewould

be areluctance by people to travel, and

to sit next to eachother. But our

Christchurch market cameback from

day one afterlockdown, and the North

Island hasyielded big numbers since

November.’’

He says SouthIsland road trips have

been popular with NorthIslanders.

Mr Abbot says he expectsgood

numbers overWaitangiweekend.

Year off to busy start

With school goingback, my wifeand Iare

excited for our youngestchild starting

school this year.

It’s amazingtothink of our childrenat

school. Where has all that timegone? I

know there willbeplenty of parents like

us looking forward to the openingof

school.

On Friday, Iwent to Woodendtohave

alook at the new signalisedcrossing at

Woodend School.

Iwas delighted to see it built and

operational in time for the new school

year.

Our residents foughthard for this,

holding the New Zealand Transport

Agency to account at my public meeting

last year, and many parents will be

relieved thattheir child’swalk to school

is now alot safer.

It’s been abusy start to the year.

Many wouldhave seen my petition to

reverse the speed limitsonMarshland

Road.I’ve been overwhelmed by the

thousands of responses fromfrustrated

people. You can read more on thisat

national.org.nz/reinstate­speed­limit­onmarshland­road.

Ihave also started adiscussion with

our communities around the potential for

anew highschool for Waimakariri. With

the Ravenswoodtown centre plan going

out for community consultation, it poses

thequestion of whetherland shouldbe

protected now, to allow for anew high

school as ourpopulation continues to

grow. I’ve had alot of feedback on this, so

please let me know yourviews.

Focus from Dan Gordon, Mayor

Many challenges in

balancing spending

The start of the year has come and gone,

and the council and Ihave beenbusy

setting priorities and the work

programme for thecomingyears.

Last week, the councilfinalised its

draft10­year budget, or draft Long Term

Plan (LTP), whichwill be releasedfor

public consultation in March.

The LTP is the council’s key strategic

document and sets out projects and

priorities, as wellashow much it will

cost and howitwill be funded.

Over the next 10 years the councilis

focused on making sure we keep up with

growth, Covid­19 economic recovery,

climate change/sustainability, and the

impact of the Government’s three waters

review.

We willspecifically be asking for

feedbackon:

New community facilitiesfor Pegasus

and north Woodend (Ravenswood);

The timing of upgrades to the

Rangiora Library and wider civic area;

and

Parking in Rangiora, includingacarpark

building.

The big challengefacing our districtis

balancingagrowing population—we

expect to have about78,000 residents in

10 yearsand possibly up to 100,000 by

2050 —whilemaking surewehave a

healthy environment,resilient

infrastructure, and remainanattractive

placefor businessesand new residents.

We’realso conscious thatthis LTP

takesplaceatatime of economic

uncertainty, and with possible changes

to how services such as wastewater and

drinkingwaterare managed.

For thesereasons, we have had to

carefullybalance whatthe community

can afford and the impacts on

households, withoutdelayingbuilding

core community facilities.

The proposed ratesincrease,ifthe

draftLTP is supported,is3.95 percent in

the first year before movingto4.2% for

the followingyears.

From whatIunderstand we willhave

one of the lowestproposed rate

increasesacrossthe country.But we will

continuetolook at ways that the council

can be efficient and makesavings.

The council has abusy programme

with projects such as the new stadium

scheduledtobecompleted aroundJuly,

roadingprojects includingFlaxton

Roadupgrades, and anew roundabout

at Fernside/FlaxtonRoad.

We will continue to lobbyGovernment

and the NewZealand Transport Agency

for the Woodend bypassand a

replacement Skewbridge.

Planning is under way for both an east

and west bypass of Rangiora, and we are

investigatingoptions to address traffic

congestion in Southbrook, which carries

about 26,000 vehicle movementsaday.

Apriority this year sees asafer

crossing for Southbrook School

students.

Withstimulus funding announced last

year, we havebeen working with

communities acrossthe districtto

identify $8 millionofwaterand

wastewaterupgrades.

The council also received $9m to

upgrade flood protection and mitigation

projects for Kaiapoi, conditional on the

samecontributionfrom the council.

The $18m project is well underway.

It is greattosee the new lightsand an

operational pedestrian crossing in

Woodend.Ithas been along time

coming. It is pleasing that there is now a

safecrossing for school students.

Thishas been aproject that has come

about through effectiveadvocacy with

the transport agency.

The community and Woodend School

can take huge creditfor this.

We now need the agency to confirma

timetablefor the remaining roading

improvements through Woodend.

We will continue to keep pushing for

this, along with further TramRoad

safety improvements.

Lastweek,credit ratingagency

Standard and Poor’s confirmed its AA

long­termand A­1+ short­term credit

rating with astableoutlookfor the

council.This reflects the prudent

financialmanagement of the council.

The draft LTP will open for feedback

fromearly March.Wewant to hear your

thoughtsand welcome feedback.

School's back -think safety

Young ones are back to their daily school commute. Road

Safety Coordinator, Dean Eades said remember the

golden rule ’20 Keither way’ -drop your speed to 20km/h

when going past aschool bus. Look out for ‘safe route to

school’ signs dotted around -well used options for school

commuters. Kiwirail will be hosting education sessions for

schools about safe behaviour this week. Always stop at a

train track and look. Hurunui District Council works closely

with its local schools, Waka Kotahi New Zealand

Transport Agency (NZTA), police, Kiwirail, NZ Trucking

Association, AA New Zealand, ACC, plus more, to create

safer driving environments and effective public messaging

-all in the name of keeping our community safe.

Speed educationapproach

Areminder that the Speed Limits Bylaw 2020 came into

play on Tuesday. You will notice some adjusted speed

signs dotted around the Hurunui district. Amessage from

local police; ‘For the first couple of weeks there will be a

grace period where we stop and educate, rather than

prosecute, to change local behaviour.’ Thank you in

advance to everyone for their cooperation.

MTFJ in fullswing

Abig thanks to the local businesses who have recruited

from the Mayoral Taskforce For Jobs (MTFJ) pool of youth

so far this year; Hurunui Labour Force, Waghorn Builders,

Nor Wester Café, Cheviot Trust Hotel, Clemens Spraying.

Pictured here is Jackson Muir who’s working at E-Cycle

Limited in Amberley. Jackson started off grubbing nassella

tussock last year for six weeks, before transitioning. For

those interested in joining MTFJ as a youth or a local

business, email MTFJ@hurunui.govt.nz or call Chris King,

Scargill Pavilionnearfinished

We're into 2021 and HDC is full swing with its earthquake

strengthening and renovation work. Scargill Pavilion, (pictured

above) is just about finished, with abit of new decking and

earthworks to go. The entire building has been strengthened

and renovated, and there has been a50sqm extension. The

work on the Waiau Hall will be completed in about six weeks.

Hanmer Memorial Hall is next on the list after that. Many

thanks to Waghorn Builders for the great work.

"Your Council is interested in hearing

your views on how you envisage your

water assets being governed in the

future. We look forward to consulting

you before any decisions are made on

this matter."

Awordfrom your CEO, Hamish Dobbie

The recent tyre fire at Racecourse Road highlighted once again

the reliance of our communities on water. Thanks to good

planning and communications within FENZ and Environment

Canterbury, no water or retardants were used directly on the

fire to reduce the potential impacts on both private and public

drinking water supplies. All drinking water supplies are

significant to those who use them, and in the dry areas of North

Canterbury where water can be scarce, these supplies are

even more significant. The government is proposing that water

assets transfer from local government to newly formed crown

entities, claiming this will be more efficient than local councils

and will have the ability to borrow more to fund the upgrades

that the government believes will be required inthe future to

meet the tougher compliance standards it is proposing to set.

Further, the government is of the view that costs can be

socialised between more populous metropolitan centres and

those rural areas with more dispersed populations, providing

greater consistency in the costs of three waters services

nationally. This socialising of costs may look attractive to some

in our area, particularly when we look at the future cost of

drinking water. The cost benefit picture does not look to be as

clear or compelling for waste water and storm water though, as

the future costs for these waters contain many more unknowns

than is the case for drinking water. In order to transfer these

services from local government, central government is

contemplating changes to the Local Government Act to remove

the necessity for mandatory community consultation on this

issue. You will be able to have your say on any potential

changes to the act through the normal central government

process. More importantly, your Council is interested in hearing

your views on how you envisage your water assets being

governed in the future. We look forward to consulting you

before any decisions are made on this matter.

The heat was on during the

family fun day in Rangiora.

The temperature rose

well into the 30s, with many

finding acool spot around

the lawn or in the central

courtyard.

The theme was fairies

and fairytales, though

there were afew pirates

spotted among the young

dress­up set.

There were tunes

blasting on the village

speakers, including

Monkey Man by The

Specials and Hot Potato by

The Wiggles.

Everyone let their hair

down, though hats were

also the order the day.

The crowd was also sun

smart, and plenty of cool

drinks were handed out.

Village staff and their

families joined the fun and

handed out popcorn, candy

floss, fairy bread and hot

chips.

For the young, there

were attractions such as a

bouncy castle, snakes and

ladders and pony rides.

Village concierge Lizz

Read dazzled the children

with her fairy outfit and

activities co­ordinator

Mealofa Faimalo drew out

the biggest of bubbles with

his magic wand.

Assistant to the manager

Amy Amtman and clinical

manager Madelyn

Premacio were the dance

crew and barbecue host.

Fun season of junior

rugby lies ahead

About127 rugby teams from under­6 to

under­18 are expected to playinthe

NorthCanterbury juniorrugby

competition this season.

NorthCanterbury Rugby manager

CraigMullansays it is hopedplayer

numbers willreturn to thelevels seen

before lastyear’s Covid­19 lockdown,

whichhad abig impact on numbers.

Game On is backagainin2021.

This initiative provides arange of

game modifications, which can include

smaller sides,rollingsubstitutions and

uncontested scrums.

Rugbymatcheswithinmost grades

may be played under the Game On

approach, whereateamhas 15 and/or

fewerplayers, or doesn’t have enough

frontrowers.

Mr Mullan says Game On means that

more rugby games kick off.

The approach aims to limitthe

number of defaultsinschool and club

rugbybecause of too few front rowers or

players.

‘‘Rugby players want to playthe game

they love, and GameOnmakes sure that

happens,’’ Mr Mullan says.

Agreement must be reachedwith

teamsand match officials before the

startofthe match.

RipRugby, agame for all juniorrugby

players,will continuethis season for

years6and 7, and 8and 9­year­olds.

It is non­contactand easy­to­play.

❛Rugby playerswant to play

the game they love, and

‘Game On’ makes sure that

happens.❜

—Craig Mullan

‘‘Best of all, it’s fun and excitingfor

everyone.

‘‘While the rulesare simple and the

game easy to learn, RipRugby promotes

excellent ball handling and running

skills and givesall players achanceto

participate in agamesimilar to rugby

7s,’’MrMullan says.

Thereisabig push by the North

Canterbury RugbySub Union to again

caterfor girls.

Girlscan play in mixed teams up until

the under­13 grade.

This yearthereisalso the opportunity

to compete in the new under­13 female

grade.

Mr Mullansays thisgrade could

possibly compete with teams outside of

the sub­union area, but it willdependon

the number of teams registering, as to

the final make­up of the competition.

Thereisalso an under­17 women’s

grade, and asenior women’s grade.

The JAB competition startsonMay 1.

High hopes ... Organisers hope that junior player numbers will recover to those seen

before last year’s lockdown to control Covid­19.


NORTH CANTERBURY JAB REGISTRATIONS

The North Canterbury News, February 4, 2021

Junior format afun way to enjoy rugby

17

NorthCanterbury rugby clubs provide a

greatplatform to introduce players to the

sportand avenuefor people to meet

others from their district.

Budding youngrugby players, both girls

and boys, are now being invited to come

forward and register with their chosen

club for JAB rugby in North Canterbury.

Youngplayers are fostered through the

Junior AdvisoryBoard(JAB),which has

cleargoals and codes in place to ensure

youngplayers enjoythe gameinasafe

environment, while learningthe basic

skills required.

Childrenofall ages can join clubs and

experience countryrugby. It also provides

the opportunitytomeet others fromthe

localcommunity, especially for those new

to the area.

Country rugby has long provided the

recipe for people to enjoy not justthe

sport, but also country hospitality.

The whole family,including

grandparents, can come along and watch,

and are welcome to help behindthe

scenes with catering, washing gear, or just

supporting the young players.

Clubsare all run by volunteers who

pitchintohelp make sure everything runs

smoothlyand helpwith fundraising. Some

take up the whistletoassist with

refereeing,ensuring the games can go on.

Others offer theirskills as acoachso

youngplayers get agood grounding in the

rulesand regulations.

The sport,like most others, cannot

function without these volunteers. People

who can offer refereeing are becoming

particularly important.

Ahandbook is available through the

CanterburyRugby Football Union to guide

parentswhen their kidsstart to playrugby.

It setsout all the clubs available in

North Canterbury, contacts, grounds, and

the various rules surrounding age

grouping and weights, and the codes of

behaviour expected from spectators,

playersand coaches.

Thecode of behaviour for players

stipulates thatplayers takepart for

enjoyment, playhard but fair, abide by the

lawsofthe game, remain committed to

their team andattend all practicesand

matches, never argue withthe referee,

control their temperatall times, work

equally hard for themselves and the team,

be agood sport,and applaud good play

whetherbytheir team or their

opponents.

Spectators are also asked to show

respect for both teams, be positive to the

referee,acknowledge the efforts of the

referee,and let players play theirgame,

‘‘not your game’’.

‘‘Praiseefforts not results and set an

example for the players,’’ the code says.

Thecode of behaviour for coaches asks

them to positivelyreinforce the actions of

players, lead by example, and be honest

with themselvesand the players.

It alsostresses thatthey should create

an enjoyable environmentinwhichtoplay

thegame, develop teamrespectfor

referees, and give all players the

opportunity to participate.

Coaches should insistonfair play and

discipline, be reasonable with their

demands on players’time, energy and

enthusiasm, and encourage

sportsmanship.

Good times ... JAB rugby provides afun­filled experience for junior grades. The

Southbrook Sparkers had ahoot in the 2018 competition.

“Strong demandfor logsfrom China

“Exports are expected to increase by

No record highs at ewe fair, but sales sound

By DAVID HILL

Bidding was strong at the Hawarden

Ewe Fair last Friday.

While ewe numbers were down and

there were no record bids, there was

some ‘‘pretty sound’’ selling throughout

the day, Peter Walsh &Associates

auctioneer Allister Orchard said.

The day’s top price was $234 for alineup

of two­tooth ewes in pen two offered

by Christophersen Ltd, of Hawarden —

well short of prices in excess of $280

paid in recent years.

About 13,000 ewes went under the

In full cry ... Peter Walsh &Associates

auctioneer Allister Orchard accepts abid.

hammer this year, less than half the

numbers on sale at last year’s two­day

ewe fair.

‘‘I would have thought that the top end

of the two­tooths may have made some

bigger money, but we more than made

up for it with the prices for mixed­age

ewes,’’ Mr Orchard said.

‘‘I think with the mixed­age and older

ewes, the buyers know they have higher

lambing percentages, so they’re looking

for proven performers.’’

Several pens of two­tooth ewes sold

for around $200 each, while mixed age

ewes sold for $160 to $190, and annual

draft ewes fetched $160 to $180.

‘‘We had agood gallery of buyers right

through to the end, so most vendors

should be pretty happy with today’s

results,’’ Mr Orchard said.

The lower ewe numbers were put

down to uncertainty around Covid­19,

farmers having plenty of feed, and the

fact that no capital lines of stock were

offered this year.

‘‘This season has certainly been one

out of the blocks, with plenty of feed

around which gives farmers abit more

confidence,’’ Mr Orchard said.

Several farmers would have gone

home without buying some ewes

because of the lower numbers, so it

should create plenty of interest for the

Sheffield Ewe Fair on Friday, February

12, Mr Orchard said.

While the catalogue is yet to be

confirmed, indications are there will be

more than 15,000 ewes offered at the

Sheffield Saleyards. That would be

down on last year, when the sale had to

be split between two saleyards.

Have youseenany of these pest plants?

Zak on attack was not enough

By LINDSAY KERR

The heroic efforts of

Darfield teenager Zak

Foulkescould not save

Canterbury Country

cricketfrom defeat in its

Hawke Cup defence

against Nelson at

MainPower Ovallast

weekend.

Country, in an often

predictably tense

encounter, had every

reason to feel confident,

having beaten its

opponents in the zone

preliminary match in

Nelson earlier in the

season.

Batting first, the

visitors wereinearly

trouble when the Country

bowling attack had them

at 4/57 before Nick Clark

and Jo O’Connor came

together and took full

advantage of five

droppedcatches and a

flattening pitch to add a

271­runpartnership.

Both batsmen recorded

centuries before Clark

was dismissed.

Once the breakthrough

was made,the innings

quickly folded, with the

team total restricted to

365.

Foulkes finished with

six Nelson wickets for 88

runs.

With the state of the

pitch clearly favouring

CRICKET

batting, Country felt

confident the Nelson

total was achievable.

However, in afashion

similar to the

challengers, early

wickets came in quick

succession and, at 111 for

7, the target looked along

way off.

That was before

Foulkes cametothe

crease.

He joined Jo Williams

and the pair took the total

to 162 before Williams

departed. Sefton’s Fraser

Sheet then joined

Foulkes. They

methodicallywent about

adding 117 to the total,

and aglimmer of hope

began to appear. Sam

Chamberlain came in at

No. 11 afterSheet was

dismissed, and like the

bowlers before him went

about his job with a

degree of confidence.

The end came as a

surprise, with both

batsmen appearing

comfortable and their

target only 40 runs away.

Nelson batted again,

but any thoughts Country

had of dismissing them

cheaply did not eventuate

and, with only one wicket

falling, stumpswere

drawn and the cup

Form with bat and ball ... Zak Foulkes’ fine all­around

performance was unable to save the Canterbury Country

cricket team from aloss.

Matt claimstitle

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Localproduction saloon

driver Matt Sherlock has

been crowned New

Zealand champion.

Sherlock, aged24,

claimed the honouratthe

New Zealand Production

Saloon Championshipsin

Whanganui last month.

In doing so, the

Kaiapoi­based driver

made history by

becoming the first person

in the class to take third,

second andfinally first

placeinthe

championships which

have been runningfor

four years.

He now gets to display

1NZ on his car for the

year.

‘‘I am stoked. Ihave the

wholetrifecta,’’ says

Sherlock, who won the

championshipbythe

barest of margins —one

point.

Sherlockheaded north

with his Mitsubishi FTO

alongwith acouple of

others from Woodford

Glen,striving to make the

top 20 to qualifyfor the

finals.

‘‘It was very hardwork,

and very competitive,’’

said Sherlock, whose two

brothers crewed.

‘‘We do it as afamily

sport. We all love the

enjoyment.’’

Sherlock givesalot of

credittohis sponsors,

who give him ‘‘massive

support’’.

The battle came down

to amammoth tussle

between BrentHackett

from Whanganui and

Sherlock, who ultimately

prevailed.

What’s happening in your

community…

Waitangi Day Events inKaiapoi

The weather is looking great for people who want

to get out and about this Waitangi Day weekend

with two events happening in Kaiapoi.

Starting at 10am join in the annual Waitangi Day

celebrations at Trousselot Park in Kaiapoi.

Chris Greengrass, Chair of All Together Kaiapoi

says, “This is your chance to take part in amass

haka led by Kaiapoi High School –you can learn

more on the day with the students and join in with

Tēnei te rūrū (Tahu Pōtiki). We would love to see

heaps of people there.”

With free entry and heaps of live entertainment

as well as market and food stalls, bouncy castles,

pony rides, face painting, flip out air tracks and

photo booth there is something for everyone.

And you can always pre-order the infamous Kaiapoi

High School Hangi from the Kaiapoi i-Site for $10 –

this isalways very popular and sells out every year

making itagreat fundraiser for the school.

If you’re more of asports fan you can pop down

to the opening of the soball diamonds at the

Norman Kirk Park from lunchtime onSaturday.

Duncan Roxborough, Implementation Project

Manager says, “This opening of the diamonds sees

the last big project delivered in the Norman Kirk

Park from Council’s District Regeneration Team.

It is great to see the community’s vision for this

area coming alive and being used by the Kaiapoi

Soball Club.”

Mayor Dan Gordon will officially open the

diamonds with aceremonial first pitch and the

public are welcome to come and watch the premier

games being played in the aernoon. And it’s a

great opportunity to learn more about soball and

maybe give itago.

Council Maintains aHigh Standard and

Poor’s Credit Rating

Credit rating agency Standard and Poor's has

confirmed its AA long-term and A-1+ short-term

credit rating with astable outlook for Waimakariri

District Council.

The AA rating equates the Council with New

Zealand’s national credit rating –the ‘sovereign

rating’. Standard and Poor’s does not rate any

individual Council higher than the sovereign rating.

Mayor Dan Gordon says the result speaks to the

prudent financial management ofthe Council.

“We have afantastic team who do agreat job

making sure our finances are exceptionally

managed and we appropriately balance our goals

and aspirations for the District while keeping debt

and affordability in check.”

The stable outlook is based on Standard and Poor’s

view that Council’s debt will significantly reduce

aer it completes its significant capital

work programme in 2022. The programme

includes delivering amulti-court indoor facility,

flood protection and mitigation projects for

Kaiapoi, creating park and ride facilities

district-wide, shovel-ready and stimulus funded

water infrastructure projects and western road

route upgrades.
