By SHELLEY TOPP

Agleaming 1914 Ford Model Twas one of

the star attractionsatthe Rangiora

RSA’sVintage Car and TractorRally.

The annualcar­show fundraiser was

held last Saturday, beginning in the

Rangiora RSA car park,then movingto

the Loburn Reserve.

At the end of the show, the cars were

takenonatour through the Charles

UphamRetirement Village during the

returntrip to Rangiora, to the enjoyment

of residents.

The Model Tisowned by Bill

Woodhouse,ofRangiora, who bought the

restored vintage beauty 12 months ago.

Duringlast year’slockdown, he built a

miniatureversion for hissix­year­old

grandson, Braxton. Bill also owns a1929

Ford Model A.

A1937 Lanz Bulldogtractor, ownedby

Phil Kerr,ofWest Melton, alsoattracted

alot of attention.

Car show organiser Ros Steans said 67

carsand 14 vintage tractors took part.

Entries wereslightly down on last year,

which she thoughtmightbebecause of

the long Waitangi Day weekend.

The Rangiora Pottery Group also took

part, providing the catering at the

reserveasafundraiser. Members also

had someoftheirpottery work on sale.

The group's tutor, Michael Michaels,

gavepottery­making demonstrations

during the day.

Social media can raise perceptions that

some North Canterbury communities are

hotspots for crime.

But Inspector PeterCooper, the Rural

Canterbury area police commander, says

crimerates in the Waimakariri and

Hurunui districts are among the lowest

in the country.

Mr Cooper, respondingtosocial media

claims of risingcrime in parts of North

Canterbury, says theyare notborneout

by statistics.

The Rural Canterbury policing area

covers the Waimakariri,Hurunui,

Selwyn and BanksPeninsula districts,

with atotal population of 154,000people.

‘‘We don’t liveinadangerous

community. It’sagreat placetobring up

kids,’’ says Mr Cooper,who has lived in

Rangiora for more than20years.

‘‘Social media cancontributetothe

perception and fearofcrime and we

don’tignore that.People’s perceptions

are very realand they needtofeel safe in

their communities.’’

But Facebookisnot acrime­recording

mechanism whichthe police followup

on, he says.

‘‘Police can only deal with real

information. If the communitylets us

know what’sgoing on, we can respond.’’

Much of the crime reported on social

mediarelates to cars being stolenor

broken into.Most were parked on the

street with itemsleft in them, he noted.

Bush awelcome home for rare mistletoes

Tiromoana Bush, alongside the Kate

Valley landfill, is providing the precise

conditions required for the growth of

three unusual native mistletoes, an

expert on the reserve says.

The mistletoes are among

more than 200 species of

native plants growing in the

bush.

What makes these

mistletoes so extraordinary is

that, unlike most plants, they

cannot germinate on the

ground.

Instead, they need their

seeds to be spread by birds to

the correct host tree where

their ‘‘roots’’, called

haustoria, grow into the

branches and extract all the water and

nutrients they need to survive from their

host species.

Under threat ... White mistletoe is

considered at risk and is considered to be

declining nationally.

David Norton

They are picky about the trees they

choose to live on.

Professor David Norton, from the

University of Canterbury’s School of

Forestry and author of The Tiromoana

Bush Restoration Management

Plan, says it is pretty special to

have three mistletoe species in

Tiromoana Bush, considering

the exacting conditions

required for their growth.

“So many factors have to

come together to enable our

rare native mistletoes to

survive,’’ he says.

“Birds are required to

spread their seeds, and

deposit them accurately on to

specific native hosts for them

to establish and grow. For example,

dwarf mistletoe only grows on kanuka,

making it incredibly rare, yet a

significant number are growing in

Tiromoana Bush.”

The three species of mistletoe are the

dwarf mistletoe (Korthalsella

salicornioides)which occurs only on

kanuka, white mistletoe or tapia (Tupeia

Antarctic), which occurs on five­finger,

and green mistletoe or pikirangi

(Ileostylus micranthus), found on

mingimingi, matagouri and afew other

hosts.

Professor Norton says dwarf mistletoe

is the rarest of the three, nationally.

It appears to be anaturally uncommon

and biologically sparse species, and is

considered critically endangered.

It is ranked Nationally Critical, the

highest threat level in New Zealand,

because of concerns its main host

species, kanuka, might be affected by

myrtle rust.

White mistletoe is ranked as At Risk­

Declining nationally, and is also sparse

in many areas of New Zealand.

Green mistletoe is widely distributed

nationally and the most common species

in the bush.

Tiromoana Bush and the native forest

restoration project are owned and

funded by Transwaste Canterbury,

which owns and operates Kate Valley,

near Waipara.

The bush is open free of charge to the

Council backs

plan for more

housing land

By DAVID HILL

The Waimakariri District

Council is backing aproposed

change to the Canterbury

RegionalPolicy Statement,

whichwill allow more

residentialland to be released

in Rangiora and Kaiapoi.

Councillorsvoted at last

week’s council meeting to make

asubmission supporting

EnvironmentCanterbury’s

proposed change to chapter six

of the RegionalPolicy

Statement.

The proposed change will

allowfor rezoningfor new

housing developments in

Rolleston, Rangiora and

Kaiapoi to support projected

populationgrowth over the

next 30 years.

The Waimakariri district’s

populationisprojected to grow

from 64,700 (as at June 30, 2020)

to 78,400 in 2031, andhit

100,000 by 2051.

Growth at that levelmeans

around 4800 new houses need

to be built over the nextdecade

and more than 12,000 new

houses by 2051.

The change is likely to lead to

higher housing density in the

Waimakariridistrict, whichthe

council tentativelyagreedtoas

part of the Our Space 2018­2048:

Greater Christchurch Settlement

Pattern document in 2018, chief

executive Jim Palmersaid.

‘‘Through the Our Space

document we did sign up to

higherdensities, from 10

householdsper hectare to 12

householdsper hectare. We

just didn’tspecify how that

would work.’’

Development planning

manager Trevor Ellis said the

prospect of higher­density

housing is something which is

being constantly grappled with

as the populationgrows. ‘‘We

are under continual pressure

aroundaway of thinking and of

providinghigher density

housing. At the momentit’s

mainlyaround affordability,

but it’s also coming with the

Climate ChangeCommission’s

recommendations.

‘‘We do have different zones.

We have different residential

zones and ruralzones and we

have recommendedminimums

which offer choice.

‘‘But developersmay choose

to do somethingdifferent, by

offeringlarger lots or multiunits

on one section,

depending on what theythink

will sell.’’

The proposed change was

notified on January 16 and

Massive tyre blaze was

aconfronting sight

It would remiss of me not to

acknowledge the community of

Amberley, and beyond, in regard to the

recent tyre fire.

Iwas informed of the fire at 3.20pm

on the Friday and was on site by 4pm.

It was confronting to witness, and I

appreciate the concern of those close

by, for what they were experiencing.

Iwould like to pay tribute to the

firefighters from near and far who

placed themselves in the ‘‘line of fire’’

to protect property.

What Iobserved were the fire teams

working in unison under extreme heat

and difficult conditions.

Iappreciate that those who live and

work near the site have concerns in

regard to their own wellbeing, and that

of their animals.

Given that asolution was about to be

realised for the tyre removal, it is now

critical that you are aware of the

remediation details.

To provide an opportunity for

feedback, apublic meeting was hosted

at short notice on Saturday, January 30,

and asubsequent meeting will be held

on Thursday, February 11, at 6pm at the

Tin Shed in Amberley.

Itrust many of you will follow the

regular updates on the Hurunui

District Council website that are

received from Environment

Canterbury and the Canterbury District

Health Board.

Iattended the Canterbury Mayoral

Forum on February 5, where we met

with the chairs from each runanga

across Canterbury.

This was an opportunity to begin to

Around the electorate with

STUART SMITH MP FOR KAIKOURA

Path to acleaner future

It was no surprise to anyone that the

Climate Change Commission’s recent

report found that we are not meeting our

emissions targets.

As Ipredicted, the commission has

recommended that the government

introduce araft of new policies.

Iwrote before the release that it is

imperative that the Government does

not meddle with the freedoms of New

Zealanders and finds solutions to

achieving net zero carbon emissions

using effective and rational policy.

Fortunately, the commission’s report

shows that with acarbon price of just $35

per tonne, we will be 85 percent of the

way to net zero by 2050, and with a

carbon price of $50 we get all the way to

net zero, including agriculture, for longlived

emissions.

The carbon price today is already at

$38 per tonne, so it is not an

insurmountable goal and shows the

effectiveness of the Emissions Trading

Scheme.

There is no need to pursue atop down

approach to reducing emissions as many

studies have shown it to be needlessly

costly and ineffective.

Some may be prepared to pay the cost

to run aseven­seat sports utility vehicle

for their large family; others will trade

them in for asmaller electric vehicle.

strengthening

Some will invest in solar water

heating, while others will continue with

their Infinity hot water system. But there

is no need to ban things, or introduce

fees or rebates. The appropriate carbon

price will lead to everyday decisions to

lower emissions in response to cost.

There are always going to be ways to

lower emissions effectively that have not

occurred to the commission, and that is

why the Emissions Trading Scheme

should be left to do its work in the

background, rather than to expect Big

Brother to tell us what to do.

For example, it may well be more

efficient to heat water in some homes

with an existing gas system rather than

electricity, which may be generated by a

gas power plant with up to 12% losses

through the distribution network.

This is all about being practical and

finding the best solution, rather than

seeking ideological nirvana, that in the

end will always lead to an insecure

power supply and other such problems.

The agenda for the government has

now become quite clear, based on the

commission’s statistics. Use acommonsense

approach, use the Emissions

Trading Scheme so that people can

make their own decisions, and don’t

meddle with people’s freedoms. It’s as

simple as that.

Rail safety

explained

The Hurunui District Council has

partnered with localagencies and

schoolcommunities near railway

crossings to promote track safety.

The council is working with Kiwi

Rail, TrackSAFE, the police,Fire and

EmergencyNew Zealand and St John

on the initiative.

Council road safety co­ordinator

Dean Eades says the interactive

education sessions, which coincided

with the firstcouple of daysback in the

classroom, enjoyedagreat turnout.

Studentsand caregivers learned

aboutsafe walkingand driving

behaviouraround railway crossings

and railway lines.

Coincidentally,during one of the

sessions, afreighttrain rolled by.

“It proves apoint thatyou need to be

awareatall times around railway

tracks,” Dean says.

People could stay safe by remembering

afew important tips, he said.

Dean sayslargetrains travel at

various speeds depending on whether

they are in an urban or ruralsetting.

“Don’t underestimate their poweror

speed. Trains can take along timeto

stop,whateverspeed they’regoing,

sometimes taking hundreds of metres

in some cases, depending on their

length.”

Levelcrossings are there for a

reason, he says, and takingshortcutsis

neveragood idea.

“Lookand listen in both directions

and remember to wait until all warning

signsand bells havestoppedbefore

crossing –there may be asecond train.”

Dean is lookingforwardtofurther

town entrance, which was

opposed by 51%.

But Ms McBride said a

submission from the police

recommended imposing a60kmh

limitalong the entire route.

The Christchurch City Council

recently imposedaspeed change

to the last section of Marshland

Road,from 70kmh to 60kmh,

meaning the entireroute from

Kaiapoi to Queen Elizabeth Drive

in Christchurch will now be

60kmh.

Apetition backedby

WaimakaririMPMatt Dooceyhas

been launched to oppose the new

Marshland Road limit.

Deputy MayorNeville Atkinson

backed the new limit, as the area

was becoming increasingly built

up with industry.

The new cycleway wasalso too

close to Main NorthRoadasit

approached Kaiapoi formotorists

to safely pass at 80kmh, he said.

‘‘The environmentrequires

taking the speed down and it’s

close to the cycleway and

walkway, the bus stop and traffic

lights.

‘‘We need to drop it to

something sensibleand Ithink

60kmh is sensible.’’

While they backedthe changes,

Crs PaulWilliams and Kirstyn

Barnettexpressed reservations.

‘‘I’m concerned about

constantly reducing speed limits

as it doesn’t seemtobereducing

the road toll. Ithinkit’s more

about educationratherthan the

speed limit,’’ Cr Williams said.

Cr Barnettsaid there needed to

be consistency.

‘‘The Rangiora­Woodend Road

is 80kmh, but there’s lots of

intersections including the five

roads intersection which pose

dangers.’’

The operating speedsonthese

roads will be surveyedwithin six

months of implementation,Ms

McBridesaid.

Upgrade ... Aproject to upgrade Flaxton and Fernside roads, near Southbrook, is

Road strategy aims

to cut congestion

By DAVID HILL

The WaimakaririDistrict Council is

continuing to investinroads as it looks

to reduce congestioncreatedbya

growing population.

The construction of bypasses for east

and west Rangioraisproposedaspart

of the council’s 2021/31Long Term

Plan (LTP).

The bypasses will support effortsto

reducetrafficcongestion in

Southbrook, which is thoughtto

experience more than 26,000 vehicle

movementsaday.

Other effortstoreduceSouthbrook

congestioninclude abid to the New

Zealand Transport Agency(NZTA)for

aset of traffic lights whereTorlesse

and Coronation streetsintersect with

SouthbrookRd.

Council staff have also been

developing proposals with the

Rangiora­Ashley Community Board

and the Southbrookand Rangiora New

Life schools and the Kindercare

Learning Centretoimprove road

safety.

The proposed Skewbridge Road

bridgeupgrade has been pushedout to

later in the 10­year LTP period, with

the council hopeful it will receive

NZTA funding,Mayor Dan Gordon

says.

The Skew bridge upgrade is

estimated to cost $12 million.

‘‘We continue to lobbyfor Skew

bridgeand the Woodendbypass, and

the reality is, if we can get NZTA on

board with the bridge replacement we

can bring it forward.

‘‘But sometimes that’sthe choice we

have to make. Does the ratepayer fully

fund it or do we wait for NZTA?

‘‘With Skew bridgeit’s asignificant

sum of money, so our priority is for

NZTA to supportit.’’

Work to upgradeFlaxton Road

throughthe Southbrookindustrial

area, and the construction of a

roundabout at the intersection of

Flaxtonand Fernside roads, beganlast

month.

Senior engineering adviser Don

Young says the projects will address

the many safety issuesaswell as cater

for the increasing amount of traffic

using Flaxton, Fernsideand Townsend

Roads to access westRangiora.

The work involves new kerbs,

parkingbays, footpaths and the

roundabout.This is creating delays

becauseofthe trafficvolumes, and the

councilencourages drivers to think

about using alternativeroutessuch as

Lineside Road.

FlaxtonRoad is closed to

northbound trafficbetween Fernside

Road and Kingsford SmithDrive.

Trafficisbeing diverted via

Townsend Road and South Belt, witha

temporary 30kmh speed limit in place.

Work will be completed in stages

until May,while the final asphalt

sealingisexpected to be completed

later in the year.

Traffic concerns voiced

By DAVID HILL

Residents of Buckleys Road in

Southbrook fear for their safety

because of impatient motorists.

Apetition signed by 34 of the 40

households in the street was presented

to last week’s Waimakariri District

Council meeting

It calls on the council to take action in

the face of increased traffic volumes

and speed.

Buckleys Road runs parallel to

Southbrook Road between Coronation

Street and South Belt, and is bearing

the impact of increased traffic

congestion in Southbrook.

‘‘I really can’t stress strongly enough

the depth of feeling of residents,’’

resident Maryanne Rouse told

councillors during adelegation to last

week’s council meeting.

‘‘After the installation of traffic lights

at South Belt/Southbrook Road and

PAK’nSAVE/Southbrook Road

intersections, the ‘cut­through’ route of

Buckleys Road has increased

significantly.

‘‘As long term residents, we have

watched the speed levels increase,

particularly in the evening, and we

want the relevant authorities to

acknowledge that there are issues that

should be addressed.’’

She believes some motorists are

travelling at more than 80kmh.

Mrs Rouse and her neighbours, Grant

and Marg McAlpine, took apetition to

their fellow residents in November and

found all of the respondents were

concerned about the speed of vehicles,

as well as the safety of children and

pedestrians.

Mayor Dan Gordon asked council

staff to prepare areport on traffic in

Buckleys Road and Coronation Street.

The report would consider options

for slowing traffic, such as judder bars.

Abusiness year like no other

The 2020/21 financial yearhas proven to be

an unusual one for localaccountants.

Prosser QuirkeLtd director Geoff White

says an accountant’syear ‘‘normally runs

the same’’ from April to March,but Covid­

19 changed thingscompletely.

The lockdown changedaccountants’

workloads, with some clientsneedinghelp

with refinancing and factoring in wage

subsidies in theirfinancial planning.

It meant the normal workload has been

pushed back. Now the race is on to

completetax returns before March 31.

‘‘While it’shard to take positives out of a

pandemic,overall North Canterbury as a

‘sub­economy’isactually probably one of

the safer regionsbecause we don’t rely

heavilyontourism.

‘‘Butthere are stillpeople struggling.

We’vehad clients in the tourism industry

who are now completely closed.

‘‘At the sametime we have building

companies who are the busiest they’ve

ever been, and in retail there’s extra

moneybeing spent locally.’’

The lockdown also had positives.It

allowed families to spendmore time

together and gave business ownerstime

for reflection. ‘‘It allowed business people

to sit back, ratherthan being so involved in

their business day in and day out,and look

at whatthey weredoing.’’

Getting back to relative normality has

allowed ProsserQuirkeLtd to getback to

supporting its localcommunity.

‘‘It was pretty hard on the community for

awhile,with no sport or community

events. But I’m pleased and proud of how

resilient our businesses have been.’’

Prosser QuirkeLtd recentlysigned on as

agold sponsor for the new MainPower

Stadium in Coldstream Road, Rangiora,

and the threedirectorsare all active in

supporting localcommunity organisations.

‘‘It’sanopportunity to support the

community. It’s really hard to support all

of ourclientsdirectly, outsideofour

normalrelationship. But if we do things

like that which supportthe community in

abroader sense it’sthe best way to do that.

‘‘Withthe stadium,ifitbrings 1000

peopleinto the community, that supports

our businesses and allows them to thrive.’’

Servant of the arts steps back

By SHELLEY TOPP

Rangiora’sBrianHoultis

scaling down his involvement

with the Waimakariri

CommunityArts Council

(WCAC) after more than 30

years.

He resigned as chairman

last December but will

continueasavolunteer on the

committee.

Fernside’sMirandaHales,

along­time volunteer on the

arts council,has replaced

Brianaschair and will

continueascurator of the

exhibition programme.

Brianbeganvolunteering

for thearts council in 1987

when it was called the Ashley

Community Arts Council.

Initially,hehelped

Christopher Marshall

organiseclassical music

concertsinthe district, but

eventually established the art

exhibition programme.

He was also instrumental in

establishing the Waimakariri

Art Collection Trustin1995

and last year received the

newlyestablished Mayor’s

Awardfor exceptional service

to the Waimakariri

community.

Before joining the arts

council, Brian was aselfemployed

chemical engineer,

but afterhis parents died

within two years of each other

he sought achange of

direction.

Aboutthis time, Brian’s

Stalwart ... Brian Hoult has provided decades of support to the localarts community.

wife,Judith,ateacher,

returned to university. She

subsequently graduatedwith

an art historydegree,with

honours, and later got ajob at

Christchurch’s McDougall Art

Gallery as its first education

officer for schools. Brian later

joined Judith at the gallery,

training and working as a

guidefor 12 years.

‘‘This was significant

because it exposed me to the

art world,’’ he said. It also

gave him an insight intohow

art galleries function and how

exhibitionswere staged.

The experiencemade him

realise thatalthough there

weremany talented artists in

Waimakariri, the arts council

was not showcasing their

work. He wanted to change

thatsohebegan searching for

apermanent space for

regularexhibitions.

He thought abuilding in

usedascouncil chambers

would be suitable, but it was

earmarked fordemolition.

The council, ledbythen

mayor JaniceSkurr, voted to

incorporate it in the new

Libraryasanart exhibition

space. The new library

openedinDecember 1996

and the arts council heldits

first artshow, Connections,in

the Chamber Gallery afew

weeks later. It has since

hosted 232 exhibitions.

Innovative

mower used

By SHELLEY TOPP

Arobot is being usedtoclear gorse,

blackberry bushes and otherunwanted

vegetation at Waimakariri’s Tuhaitara

Coastal Park.

The Italian­made mower, ownedby

Deltaand based at the infrastructure

specialist firm’s Rangiora branch in

NewnhamStreet, is operated by staff

member Joe Fraser.

The diesel­powered mower drives a

full hydraulicsystemand has a

13­functionremote control unit.

The machine is capable of operatingat

60­degree anglesinall directions, and

can be guidedfrom 100 metresaway.

The mower has also been used to

maintainthe grounds aroundthe historic

Kaiapoi Pa site.

‘‘It completed atrial at Tuhaitara

CoastalPark last November and

everyone was so impressed with what it

coulddothatitisnow beingput to

regular use at thislocation,’’ aDelta

spokesman said.

‘‘It is robustand very hard­working. We

are proud to be working smarter and

utilising new technologytoincrease safe

and efficient work practices.’’

Tuhaitara Coastal Park’sgeneral

manager Greg Byrnes said the park staff

maintained the Kaiapoi Pa on behalf of

the pa’s trustees and it was there where

they first saw the mower in use last year.

‘‘An area we wouldlikely have taken a

week to clearofblackberry and rank

grasswith scrub bars was completedin

around fourhours,’’ he said. ‘‘We could

not use atractor due to the sloping

nature of the terrain.’’ It was the skill of

Mr Fraserthat made the use of the

mowersosuccessful, he added.

International relations ... In normal years, Waimakariri schools can expect to host

High School in 2019, as well as long­term exchange students.

Overseas students

await open borders

By DAVID HILL

Waimakariri schools expect an influx of

international students oncethe borders

reopen.

Whilemanystudents returned home

when NewZealandwentinto lockdown

lastyear,others optedtostay. Now, the

regionisbeingviewed as asafe

destination.

Oxford Area School has just one

international student at present, but

principal Mike Hart says there are many

in the pipeline.

Rangiora High School has eight

international students on campus, with

more than 60 waiting to come.

Kaiapoi High School has just two

foreign students, but international

manager Kristie Dutton anticipates

there couldbesignificant growth for

Canterburyschoolsinthe international

student market once theborders

reopen.

‘‘We’ve had lots of interestcoming

fromoverseas, withenquiries from Asia

and Germany for both long­term and

short­term students.

‘‘Iamexpecting an influx once our

borders open as NewZealandand the

Governmenthavedone so well.’’

Meanwhile, communications are

continuing withagentsandprospective

students online, Kristie says.

Kaiapoi’s two overseas students are

fromJapan.Theyare in NewZealand on

three­year programmes.

With the border being closed, the

students have been unable to return

home to visit theirfamilies,spending

thesummer in New Zealand.

‘‘While they obviously misstheir

families,botharehappy andwell

❛We’ve got 60­odd students

waiting to come, mostly from

Germany and Japan, but we’ve

got no idea when we can let

them in or what quarantinewill

be required.❜

—Melissa Heyrick

adjusted withexcellent support from

hostfamilies, localfriends andthe

school,’’Kristie says.

Rangiora HighSchool’sinternational

director, Melissa Heyrick, says the eight

students on campus are allonlong­term

stays.Theyare from Korea, Dubai,

Thailand, Japan and Germany.

‘‘It’s quite normal forusforour

studentstostaylocally overthe summer,

butit’s quitechallengingfor them

knowingtheycan’t go home.

‘‘We’vegot 60­odd students waitingto

come, mostly from Germany and Japan,

but we’ve got no ideawhenwecanlet

themin or whatquarantine will be

required.’’

For now, Melissa is running the

international department by herself,but

expectstobe able to increase staffing

again once the students return.

Before Covid­19, international

education was considered one of New

Zealand’s biggest export earners.

As well as payingfees to their host

school, homestay families receive a

weekly sum to cover expenses, and

students and theirfamilies will often

spendmoney in the local community, as

wellasholidaying around New Zealand.

Festival atrue family occasion

Amberley’s Markham Street

hosts its second huge street

party on Saturday, February

13.

The family friendly

Summer Festival of the

Hurunui will run from 1pm to

7pm, providing fun,

entertainment, food, and the

chance to indulge in alot of

retail therapy.

Markham Street is the

oldest street in Amberley,

and was originally the heart

of the town.

It will be closed to traffic,

and about 60 stalls will line

the pavement for people to

enjoy.

AmberleyNZ spokeswoman

Claire Inkson says the

inaugural festival was

extremely popular last year.

This year the committee is

encouraging people to make

aday of it in Amberley.

Claire says the weekly

Farmers Market outside the

Hurunui District Council on

the main highway is

extending its hours, and

there are plenty of cafes and

shops for people to enjoy

before the festival begins at

1pm.

There will be live music,

including Assembly Required,

Willie McArthur and Epicenta.

The shops and cafes on

Markham Street will be open,

and people will be able to

enjoy craft beers, local wine,

and the market stalls.

There will be plenty of tasty

food on offer, with some

amazing food trucks

attending, including Base

Pizza from Christchurch.

Achildren’s area, run by

the Hurunui Youth Council,

will provide plenty of fun and

games for the young folk

attending, and the local fire

brigade will have its trucks

on display. St John will also

have astall.

Claire says many stallholders

from last year sent

for kea conservation at their stall during during last year’s festival.

messages of support for the

festival, expressing how

friendly it was and asking to

be involved again.

‘‘Feedback was so

positive,’’ she said.

The best part of last year

was seeing so many people

enjoying themselves, and

having so many volunteers

pitching in to help make the

day asuccess.

‘‘It is easy to look at the

news and see so much

negativity, but when we hold

events like this, all of the

community spirit and

kindness just flows, and it’s

that small­town spirit that I

love. Amberley has it in

bucket­loads.’’

The AmberleyNZ

committee had always

wanted to get afestival

running, and now has the

blueprint to allow it to

become annual event, which

includes getting an

application in early to allow

the road to be closed.

Work continues on rockfall protection

The North Canterbury

Transport Infrastructure

Recovery (NCTIR) Alliance is

winding down itswork

around Kaikoura, more than

four years afterthe November

2016 earthquake.

Asmall NCTIR teamgot

back on the road in early

January to continue work on

the final majorproject,a

rockfallprotectioncanopy

and drapedmesh fence just

southofPeketa.

The State Highway 1night

closures associated with this

rockfallwork are continuing

from Sunday to Thursday

underthe same timetable

(visit nzta.govt.nz/p2c formore

information).

Work on the rockfall

protectionprojecthas

progressed over summer.

Crew havebeen undertaking

shotcreting work, using

sprayableconcrete, to

stabilise and strengthen an

existing shotcrete layer,

whichwill sit beneath the

canopy structure.

Smallamountsofshotcrete

were also sprayed around the

base of the plinths where the

canopy postswill sit.

All of the 14 upslope

anchors have been drilled

and will now undergo two

weeksofsafety testing.

Downslope anchors are still

undergoing drilling and

grouting.

Over the next month,

helicopters willbring in more

mesh for the draped mesh

fence, and concrete barrier

installation will begin north

of the canopy site.

Asmall but dedicated team

is overseeing the

demobilisation and removal

of the NCTIRVillage, which

has beensold to Smith Crane

&Construction Ltd after a

tender process in December.

Removal of the 96 buildings

beganinmid­January and

was due for completionbythe

middle of this month.

Matt Shepherd, who heads

the NCTIR villageremoval

project, says,inMay 2017, the

buildingshad to be trucked in

through theInland Rd.

He notes it is somethingof

an achievement for the

NCTIRteam that someofthe

unitsare now able to return to

Christchurch via SH1.

‘‘Because NCTIRhas

standardised the heightand

widthofthe road tunnels

during the earthquake repair

works, it is now possible to

send these units back on

can help you.

Roadsare being resealed around the

Waimakariri district.

The Waimakariri District Council is in

the midst of its summer road resurfacing

programme, with contractorsout and

aboutatOxford recently to chip­seal

several roads.

They included Bay Road betweenMain

Street and Wilsons Road,Oxford Road

west of Cust between Steffens Road and

Starvation Hill Road,High Street between

Harewood Rd and MainStreet, Kowhai

Street, Park Ave and Commercial Rd,

between Depot Roadand Bath Street.

Sealing continued last week in Bay Road

and KowhaiStreet in Oxford.

This weekcrews will turntheir attention

to asectionofWilliams Streetnorth of

Magnolia Boulevard in Kaiapoi, Swindells

Road and Kiwi Ave in Waikuku, and

HighfieldLane in Rangiora.

The area is swept within48hours of

sealing, but asmall amount of ongoingchip

loss can be expected over the next three to

six months.

Council staff warn that driving too fast

on freshlysealed roads can cause the chips

to scatter, damaging carsand the road

surface.

Drivingtoo slow may result in the

vehicle sinking into thenew seal,and

bitumen and chips stickingtowheels.

Heavyuse of brakes in anewlysealed

area can resultindamage to vehicles and

the road surface too.

Motorists are advisedtoget ready by

slowing downtothe posted temporary

speedlimit before reaching the new chip

seal.

They should leave space to allow an

extracar’slengthdistance to develop

between their car and the vehicle in front.

Motorists are urged to drivesteadily at

the temporary speedlimit and pay

attention to the signage —30kmh is an

appropriate speed on new seal.

Drivers should avoidridingtheir brakes

and avoid getting so close to the car in front

that they havetobrakesuddenly. Brakes

should be tapped lightly, but only if the

driver has to.

Motorists are urged to be patientand are

askednot to pick up speeduntil afterthey

have left the road works zone.

The strategies willreducethe likelihood

of damage to paintwork and windscreens.

Vehicles travelling at the temporary

speedlimit help pressthe new chipinto

the seal.

This is an ongoing programme and local

motorists are encouraged to keepupto

date by following the Waimakariri District

Council’s page on Facebook.

Pines part of solution

By DAVID HILL

NorthCanterbury farm foresters would

like to see the benefits of pine trees

recognised in efforts to meet New

Zealand’sclimatechange targets.

Respondingtolast week’s Climate

Change Commission report, New

Zealand Farm Forestry Association

NorthCanterbury branchsecretary

Laurie Bennett says his branchis

concernedthat thepotential of radiata

pine has beenoverlooked.

The report setsnew emissionstargets

and makes recommendations, including

climate­friendly farmingpractices and

establishing more permanent forests,

predominantly natives.

‘‘Radiata pine provides afast growing

solutionasashortand medium­term

carbon sink on land not suitable for

harvesting at acost far less than

establishing native forests fromscratch

on bare land,’’ he says.

As afast­growing tree, pine trees

absorb carbon rapidly over 30 to 50

years, and pineplantations can grow on

andeventuallydecline to provide a

canopy to support the establishment of

native forests.

‘‘Native trees can take hundredsof

yearsuntilthey get to thelevelofcarbon

sink required,’’ Mr Bennett says. ‘‘But

growing radiata pine in the right place,

at the righttime,provides multiple

benefits. It provides robust money to our

grossdomestic product compared to

otherproducts and works well alongside

otherfarming practices.

‘‘As North Canterbury farmers are

increasingly finding, in the right

environment, sheep,beef and forestry

will do better per hectare thanjust

sheep and beef.’’

University of Canterbury forestry

Professor Euan Mason says there is a

misconception that forest carbon

storage is ‘‘impermanent’’.

‘‘What mattersisthe total area of New

Zealand in forest, not whether or not any

particular forest standblowsdown,

burnsorisharvested.

‘‘If we commit to increasing the total

national area of forest and to ensuring

that the verysmall areas thatblow or

burn down, or those areas thatmay be

harvested, willbere­established, we can

enlargeavery stable, permanent carbon

store in forests.’’

Rather than relying on native

plantings,Professor Mason advocates

using the more ‘‘rapid sequestration

rates of exotics to fill gaps in our carbon

accounts’’.

Harvest season is in full swing and

Federated Farmers is urging motorists

and the operatorsofagricultural

machinery to show each othersome care

and understanding.

Federated Farmers’ transport

spokeswoman, KarenWilliams, says New

Zealand’s$2.1 billion arableindustry is

an important part of the country’s export

earnings, economyand employment.

During harvest,tractors towing

implementsand other big agricultural

vehicles oftenneed to use public roads.

‘‘They’re bulkyand of necessity —and

by law —move at lower speedsthan other

motorists,’’ Ms Williams says.

Competition

at field days

An Amuri A&P Show initiative is set to

feature at this year’s South Island

Agricultural Field days.

The Country Women Competition,

trialledbythe Dairy Women’s Network’s

North Canterburybranch at last year’s

Amuri show, has been added to the lineup

for the field days being held at Kirwee

from March24to26.

Having acompetition which allowsthe

region’stalented rural women todisplay

their capabilities is acoup, says

Michaela McLeod, the organising

committee’s firstchairwoman.

“The South Island AgriculturalField

Days has long been known for the place

to see harvesters,seeders, balers and

some of the newest agricultural

technology in action.But to be able to

highlight the skills and capabilities of the

women, whoare often the backbone of

the agricultural industry, is aspecial

additiontothe field days this year.’’

The event revolvesaround challenges

designedtogive rural women achanceto

prove their mettle and talent.

Prospective entrants are encouraged

to keep an eye on the Dairy Women’s

NetworkCanterbury page on Facebook.

‘‘Farmersare askingother driversto

show abit of patienceand common sense.

If atractor or harvester doespull over to

the edge of theroad, takeyour

opportunity to passifyou can do so safely.

‘‘Mostofthemwillbemoving no faster

than 30­40kmh or so, so it’s not essential

to havethe same several hundred metres

of clear road ahead needed when

overtakingmuch faster moving vehicles.’’

Refusing to pass can result in along

line­up of vehicles and that’s when some

drivers’ patience frays and theydo

somethingrisky, Ms Williams says.

She also urges the operators of farm

vehicles to keeptrafficflows in mind.

Southbrook sees sniff

of avictory evaporate

Amasterclass in how to chasealow score

saw Leeston­Southbridge overcome a

scrappy Southbrook in the lastweekend’s

roundofcountry cricket.

Therewere wins for Leeston­Southbridge,

Ohoka, Cheviot and Oxford­

Rangiora as the CRV Ambreed Country

Premier One Day 2020/21 competition

heatsup.

Southbrook, which hasn’twon sincethe

opening round,was putinto bat by the

home sideatLeeston Park on Saturday.

Youngwicket­keeper batsman Hayden

Thornley and SouthbrookmainstayTony

Hancox got the visitors off to aflying start,

bringing up the 50­runopening

partnership in eightovers. But the freescoring

Hancox retiredwith ahamstring

injury afterscoring 21 off 25 balls.

Thornley brought up his half­century

before he fell with the score at 100/3.

Leeston­Southbridge’s fight­back was

sparked by MainPower Oval head

groundsman Dave Evans,whose nagging

medium­pacers turned the match, picking

up three quick wickets.

The spin trioofDavid Neal,Tim

Gruijters and Will Macfarlane also

combined for five wickets and Southbrook

was out for just 150 in 37.5 overs.

Southbrook needed to strike earlyto

have any chance, and paceman Jono

Greendelivered. He rippedout opener

Rupert Young and Gruijters in the first

over,givingSouthbrook asniff of victory.

That hope was eroded by the composed

batting of Toby Doyle and Chris Beatson.

Unperturbedattaking 39 balls to get off

the mark, Doyle ground Southbrookout of

the match. He made an unbeaten 45 runs

off 117 balls, while Beatson compiled 66

not out from 98 balls,securing the eightwicketwin

with eightovers to spare.

Ohoka victorious

An unbeaten centurybyNew Zealand

under­19 star Rhys Mariuhelped guide

Ohoka to a15­run win overDarfield.

Mariu carried his bat through the first

innings, making 114 of Ohoka’s 253 runs,

well­supported by WillHamilton (41 off46)

and Harry Fitzpatrick (46 off 66).

In reply, Darfieldwas sitting pretty at

92/1 in 19 overs, before fallingtobe117/5.

Ryan Hughes (38 off 40) and keeper

Alister Collins (48 off 45) gaveDarfielda

whiff of victory but fell 15 runsshort.

BigCheviotwin

At Weedons Domain, visiting Cheviot

thumped the home side by 115 runs.

AcenturypartnershipbetweenCheviot

openerTed Whelan (65 off 74) and George

Waddy (68 off 97) set up the commanding

first innings score of 251 in its 45 overs.

Weedons never threatened the big score,

to be all out for 136 in the 37th over.

Five­wicket win

At Pearson Park,Oxford­Rangiora

Lincoln,which managedjust 102.

Council Supports Move to Rid Waste of

‘Greenwashing’

Waimakariri District Council has voiced its support

for proposals for New Zealand to move away from

‘greenwashed’ and single-use plastics.

Greenwashing is the process of conveying afalse

impression or providing misleading information

about how acompany's products are more

environmentally sound.

The Ministry for the Environment late last year

asked the public how best to tackle problem

plastics and received more than 5000 submissions.

The first of the Government’s proposals would see

regulations imposed to phase out certain hard-torecycle

plastics.

These include PVC food and beverage packing,

polystyrene packaging, as well as oxo-degradable

plastics. These are plastics that are designed to

break down quickly when oxygen is present, creating

microplastics that pollute the environment.

“There is so much unrecyclable plastic packaging

making it to New Zealand shelves,” says Council’s

Solid Waste Asset Manager Kitty Waghorn.

“Many producers claim their packaging products

are biodegradable or compostable when in reality

they aren’t. They can’t be composted in most

commercial composting facilities in New Zealand.”

The second proposalidentifies sevensingle-use items

to phase out, including single-useplasticproduce

bags,tableware,non-compostable producestickers,

drinkstirrers, plasticcotton buds andstraws.

The proposed changes are expected to come into

force by January 2025 with some happening earlier,

depending on the type of packaging and item.

Woodend Celebrates aSafe

School Crossing

The ribbon was cut last week opening the longawaited

pedestrian crossing outside Woodend

School on State Highway 1.

Mayor Dan Gordon says, “It’s great to see this

in place just in time for school starting back. It’s

been along time coming and it is fantastic there

is finally asafe way across the State Highway for

school kids and wider Woodend.”

The Mayor was joined by student leaders from

Woodend School, School Principal Adrienne Simpson,

Jim Harland from Waka Kotahi (NZ Transport Agency),

and representatives from Beca and Fulton Hogan who

worked on the project.

The lights andthe crossing are part of awider road

safety improvement projectalongthe State Highway.

He says effective advocacy with Waka Kotahi was

key to this project’s success.

“The community can take huge credit for this,

including the students and staff from the school.”

“We now need Waka Kotahi to confirm atimetable

for the remaining road improvements through

Woodend. These will build on the good work we’re

celebrating today and make walking and cycling a

more viable option for the community before they

hopefully commit to the Woodend Bypass.”

Kaiapoi Aquatic Centre Reopens

Scheduled maintenance at Kaiapoi Aquatic Centre

has been completed, meaning the full centre is

again open to the public.

Major maintenance takes place every two tothree

years and involves draining the pools, repairing

tiles and re-grouting. The work ensures the facility

will be in great shape for years to come.

More information on opening hours

and swim programmes can be found at

THEHOPE OF ISRAEL -

IS IT GOOD NEWS?

Anti-Semitism sits just under the surface of most institutions.

How does the Bible speak of Israel and it’s people? The Jews

have been in the forefront of God’s purpose with the Earth,

Abraham being their father, the promises given to him by God

impact upon the nations -for good or not. Understanding

the Old Testament gives us the foundation for understanding

the New Testament. ‘For Moses truly said unto the fathers,

Aprophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your

brethren, like unto me: him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever

he shall say unto you. Ye are the children of the prophets, and

of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto

Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be

blessed. Acts 3:22, 25
