Ben follows track legends

By SHELLEY TOPP

Mandeville teenager Ben

Whalley is following in the

footsteps of some legendary

Kiwi sporting heroes, becoming

the youngest person to win the

New Zealand Speedway Solo

Bike Championship.

He won the title at Moore

Park Speedway in West Melton

on February 6, displacing an

idol, four­time champion

Bradley Wilson­Dean.

Ben, at just 18, emulated the

New Zealand titles won by

speedway legends Ivan Mauger,

Ronnie Moore and Barry

Briggs, all of whom went on to

become world champions and

household names.

Ben has already followed up

his championship win with a

second placing at last week’s

Burt Munro Challenge in

Invercargill.

Ben became interested in

solo bike racing after his father,

Neil Whalley, died suddenly 10

years ago.

He has worked hard under

the mentorship of his maternal

grandfather, Ivan Harris, a

keen solo bike enthusiast, to

claim the championship at such

ayoung age.

Ben loves the speed, thrill

and tactical aspect of solo bike

racing.

Ivan is proud of what his

grandson has achieved and also

his ability to stay calm under

pressure and listen and learn

from mentors who have helped

him along the way.

Ben has two sleek methanolpowered

racing solo bikes

which can reach speeds of up to

100kmh, but have no brakes.

‘‘You race at full throttle the

whole time,’’ he says. ‘‘After the

chequered flag you just button

off the throttle and they slow

down pretty quick.’’

Each finely tuned bike is

custom­made to the riders’

requirements and cannot be

bought ready­made off the

showroom floor.

NCEA art bound for exhibition

By SHELLEY TOPP

Covid­19 has been the gift that keeps

giving for Amberley teenager Lana

Bonnett.

Lana, aged 18, made Covid­19 the

subject of her NCEA level­3 sculpture

portfolio during her final year at

Rangiora High School last year.

She first learnt about the virus in

January last year but never dreamt it

would become aglobal pandemic.

However, as the virus spread, it

provided Lana with arich vein of ideas

for her portfolio.

Her work earned an ‘‘excellence in

visual art’’ grading, the highest

achievement possible, from the New

Zealand Qualifications Authority

(NZQA).

Then, late last month she was invited

to submit her portfolio for this year’s

NZQA Top Art Exhibition.

Lana is pleased her portfolio has been

received so well, and excited to have her

work included in the exhibition with 59

other students who also achieved an

‘‘excellence in visual art’’ (design,

painting, photography, printmaking and

sculpture) grading at level 3in2020.

The exhibition will tour later this

year.

The invitation surprised Lana, who is

grateful for the support from Rangiora

High School art teacher Jan Robertson.

‘‘She is my favourite teacher ever.

Anything Ineeded she was always there

to help.’’

Jan says she enjoyed teaching the

talented teenager.

‘‘Lana is an empathetic, motivated

young woman who responded so well to

suggestions, and her maturity meant you

could chat to her, critique her work and

offer suggestions and she would then

respond to this,’’ Jan says.

‘‘She rightly deserved the grades she

received in these subjects as they are

demanding subjects which require a

high level of self discipline and

commitment.

‘‘I know she will do well in whatever

Bonnett’s artwork has been recognised.

she does and Iwish her all the best for

her studies over the next few years.’’

Lana says she has always had amind

for art and decided to study it at school.

She plans to be an architect and

headed to Wellington last Saturday to

begin studying for aBachelor of

Architectural Studies at Victoria

University. After she completes the

three­year degree, she is hoping to

continue her studies for aMasters at the

prestigious Delft University of

Technology in The Netherlands.

‘‘That will depend on whether Covid­

19 is still around,’’ she says.

Lana is keen to study at Delft because

it is rated as one of the world’s top two

universities for architectural studies

and she has family there, as her mother,

Rianne, is from The Netherlands.

Quality effort... Part of Lana’sart portfolio.

KAIKŌURA VIEWS

MAYOR CRAIG MACKLE

Let’ssupport each other

I’ve enjoyed working with our new chief

executive, Will Doughty, over the last

coupleofweeks.

Will has agood understanding of the

issuesfacing us and has quicklygot up

to speed with council projects.

I’ve been mightilyimpressed so far

and Iamlooking forward to working

with him and the rest of the council

team.

In the first stageofthe Government’s

three watersreform programme, the

council will be spending $1.88 millionof

Crown funds to repair and upgrade

water supplysystemsinthe district over

the next 18 months.

Several projects are in the pipeline

(excuse the pun). Physical workshave

already startedtoreconfigurethe

suburban water scheme to connectto

the urbanwater supply network.

This will improve the water qualityto

suburban residents and enable us to

removethe boilwater noticethat has

been in place since the earthquakes.

Repairs to haulroutes on the

Kaikoura Flatsare well under way.

While theremay be someshort-term

inconvenience, the worksare agood

outcome and have been completely

fundedbythe New Zealand Transport

Agency as part of its commitment to

remediate the roads in the district after

the 2016 earthquake.

As well as projects on the ground, the

council team is working on all the

background planning and paperwork

requiredfor the Long-Term Plan (LTP),

covering2021 to 2031.

This includes planning the budgets

for the next 10 years and a30-year

infrastructure strategy lookingathow

we manage our assets, to ensure they

meet the needsofour community now,

and what we might need for the future.

At thisstage, formal consultation on

the LTP is scheduled for late May/June.

Ihave beentalking to afew of you on

the streets. It feels like everyone is

doing what they can to reassess and

adapt their businesses to life in

Kaikourawithoutinternational tourists.

While there are someactions that

people can take, Ithinkmany of us are

also waiting to see what is going to

happen, and where that willleave us as

acommunity.

Iknow these are tough times, so Iurge

you to support each other and buy local

Students acknowledge

central role of treaty

By DAVID HILL

Waitangi Day was achance for Kaiapoi

Zealand’s national day.

Charlie Wicksand Hunter Henley come

from different culturalbackgrounds but

both saidWaitangi Day was importantto

theirfamilies. The pair addressed those

who gathered in Kaiapoi to mark the day.

Charlie said her whanau came together

each year to markWaitangiDay and had

learned about thesignificance of the day

whileattending TuahiwiSchool.

‘‘Growingup, Iwas fortunate to attend a

realised most kids didn’teven know why

‘‘It is crucialthat our tamariki and our

whanau are awareofwhat Waitangi Day

commemorates and acknowledges.

‘‘We celebrate todaybyremembering

and acknowledgingthe signing of the

treaty just over 180 years ago.’’

The treaty was signedbyQueen

Victoria’srepresentative,Governor

William Hobson, and Maori chiefs at

Waitangi.

‘‘Waitangi Dayisn’tjust aholiday. It’s a

day when we celebrate our country’s rich

peopleand our multi-cultural diversity.’’

Hunter, who talked of his Pakeha and

Japanese heritage,gave an emotional

address in which he spoke about his late

father, born on Waitangi Day.

‘‘While Iwas writing this speech, mum

told me that my dad thought he was born

on this day for apurpose, to help bring

peopletogether,which is whatthe treaty

has done.’’

Hunteradmittedhehad alot to learn

about Waitangi Day. ‘‘I’membarrassed to

regretand Iamslowly rectifying.’’

But he was familiar with some of

businesses are in agood space,

despite the challenges of the

‘‘I do think North

Canterbury has done so much

100 enquiries from people

interested in setting up a

Afree business start-up

While priority is given to

those affected by Covid-19, out

of work or on abenefit, anyone

who is interested in starting up

abusiness can apply or contact

Mr Dalton to discuss their

business idea.

‘‘The application form asks

‘what do you have in mind?

What do you know and don’t

know?’ to ensure that people

have seriously thought about

it.

‘‘It’s not enough to start a

business if you’re not getting

‘‘Some businesses can start

up and then grow organically,

sure you can pay it back, and

that it’s actually going to pay

There are several options

for setting up abusiness,

depending on what

prospective business owners

want to achieve.

The options include

charitable trusts, social

enterprises or commercial

enterprises.

Scout den repaired, ready for use

By DAVID HILL

The Kaiapoi Gray Raven Scout Den has

been reborn adecade after it suffered

serious earthquake damage.

The scout den suffered in the 2010 and

2011 Canterbury earthquakes, with one

wall slumping by 40 millimetres. The

building was deemed unsafe.

For the last decade the Kaiapoi keas,

cubs and scouts, as well as the Gray

Raven venturers, have been using rooms

at Blue Skies, but New Zealand’s oldest

scout troop will finally have its own

scout den again next month.

‘‘It’s now astate­of­the­art building

and it’s probably the most modern scout

den in the southern hemisphere,’’ group

leader Chris Thompson says.

The repair was along time coming, as

the scout group waited for decisions

from insurance, Scouting New Zealand

and the Waimakariri District Council.

‘‘It was in 2019 when everything finally

fell into place and we got acouple of

builders on board, and then Covid

slowed things down,’’ Mr Thompson

says.

But with the support of Scouting New

Zealand and the community, the repairs

have finally been completed.

The group will be joined by the other

Waimakariri scout groups for the

occasion.

‘‘The official opening will be from

Mr Thompson says.

New Zealand’s first scout troop was

established in Kaiapoi in 1908, and

descendants of Kaiapoi’s first scout

leader, Ted Mallasch, will be attending.

Christchurch family historian Kevin

White has been invited to speak about

Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon, a

former cub, and former cub leader and

attending, along with representatives

from Scouting New Zealand.

Mr Thompson says the scout den will

cater for about 50 children and young

people each week, including seven to

eight keas, 15 cubs and 12 scouts.

There are about 15 members in the

Gray Raven venturer unit, which serves

the Waimakariri district, with the older

venturers looking at forming anew rover

scout group.

The scout den will be available for

hire by the community when not being

Timber firm chalks up 100 years

By DAVID HILL

Kaiapoi’s Sutherland familyiscelebrating

100 years in business.

Sutherland Timber wasestablishedin

Southlandafterbeing conceived by two

brothers corresponding during World

War 1.

The business remainsinthe same

family, withMurray Sutherland having

handed over the reins to the fifth

generation.

Eldest son Jonnieisnow managing

director, with second son Davie running

the Kaiapoi ITM timber yard and daughter

Amy Sherwinlooking after the marketing.

Sutherland Timber became

incorporated in 1920, but anniversary

celebrations were delayed because of

Covid­19, Amy says.

‘‘It’s pretty exciting times.We

acknowledged it as afamily last year, but

now it’s time to celebrate it withour staff.

‘‘It’s apretty special story how it started,

with two brothers writing to each other

whiletheywere in the war, and they

started to plantostart something when

they came back.’’

Whileone of the brothers was killedin

action, Murray’s grandfather returned

home safely and persuadedhis father to

bankrollthe establishment of asawmillat

Tuatapere.

After12years, the sawmill was relocated

to the Caitlins on the Otago coast, with the

focusbeing on native timberproduction.

The business relocated to Cheviot after

WorldWar 2, with the focusmoving to

Pinusradiata timber. It later movedto

Kaiapoi in 1956, when Murraywas a

toddler.

Afterashort stintaway fromhome,

Murray returned to Kaiapoi withhis wife,

Annie, 38 years ago to take over the

running of the business.

‘‘I’ve been here 38 years and in that time

we’veexpanded into the exportmarketin

the 1990s with furniture gradetimbers,

and our logs are all locally sourced from

Ashley Forest and Hanmer State Forest.’’

In recent years, SutherlandTimberhas

established strong marketswith Douglas

fir.

Murray continues to be activeinthe

business, with eldest sonJonnie as

managing director.‘‘You’ve got to have

one personsteering the ship,’’Murray

says.

‘‘Butit’s very much ateam effort,’’

Jonnie adds. ‘‘I’ve been aroundthe place

sinceIwas akid and I’ve alwayshad a

passion for the timber andthe engineering

that goes with it.’’

Family business... JonnieSutherland, left,is

continuing the family tradition at Sutherland

Timber with his brother,Davie Sutherland, and

have 75 people employed in Kaiapoi.

‘‘It’s agreat industry to be apart of.

There’ssomeamazing people in our

industry and the lifeexperiences you get

along the way, you can’t replacethem.’’

Amy says Sutherland Timber is looking

to the future.

‘‘I love the fact thatit’srenewable and

“It’s an indescribable feeling to knowthatyourchild canhearyou”

When Renee Cain learned her son

was born profoundly deaf she was in

shock. It was 2016, and little Jackson

was only days old when hewas given

ahearing test that all new babies

receive, but his results weren’twhat

they’d hoped for.

Renee says it took quite awhile for

the news tosink in, and it was heartwrenching

when it did.

“We tried hearing aids and we

thought hecould hear things, like

doors banging, but they weren’t

working at all,” says Renee, who lives

in Rangiora.

With alot of support and information,

Renee decided that cochlear implants

were the right option for Jackson and

their family. Acochlear implant is a

surgically-implanted electronic device

that restores hearing for those with

profound hearing loss.

At six-months-old

Jackson underwent

surgery to have the

implants fitted.

The surgery was

arranged by

the Southern

Cochlear

Implant

Programme

(SCIP) in

Christchurch.

Renee

remembers when

her little boy could

finally hear her voice.

“His face lit up and

he had abig smile when I

spoke. It brought tears to my eyes,”

she says.

“It’s anindescribable

feeling to know that

your child can hear

you. When he heard

sounds for the first

time he had alook

of amazement on

his face.”

Jackson, now

four, will start

at Southbrook

School in

Rangiora later this

year.

“I never knew about

cochlear implants

until Iwas in this

situation,” says Renee.

“It’s amazing what technology can do.”

Established in 2003, SCIP is one of

two cochlear implant providers in

New Zealand.

The not-for-profit organisation

currently provides care to more than

950 adults and children throughout

the South Island and as far north as

Taupo. Its offices in Christchurch

and Wellington are complimented by

regular visiting clinics throughout the

catchment area.

SCIP performs all cochlear implant

assessments, arranges surgery,

activates the cochlear implant,

administers adjustments and provides

post-implant rehabilitation services.

RangioraLions Club Chooses SCIP forRamble

Following aspeaker from SCIP coming

to talk to members the Rangiora Lions

Club decided to nominate SCIP as the

cause for the Ashley River Ramble

2021.

This is the 5th year of the Ramble,

with previous recipients including Koru

Care, Diabetes NZ and the Ashley-

Rakahuri Rivercare group. The event

evolved out of the Lions Club Rangiora

-Kaiapoi Fun Run, and provides a

relaxed family friendly event with great

scenery ofthe river which is home to

some of NZ’s rarest birds.

ARR coordinator Kirstyn Barnett

says the event is all about enjoying the

outdoors with family and friends.

“Every time Igotothe Ashley-

Rakahuri river Isee something new.

We are so lucky to have this national

treasure in our backyard, so easily

accessible for cyclists and walkers.”

She is delighted that the funds raised

from the event will go towards helping

local people enjoy abetter quality of

life.

‘‘It gives me equal amounts of pleasure

to not only giveartists aplatform to

says.

Miranda replacedBrian Hoult,who

resignedaschairman last December.

‘‘Brian did asuperb job for manyyears,’’

she said.

Miranda’s own involvementwiththe

council has also beenlengthy —‘‘about27

years’’.

She wanted to joinalocal organisation

that revolved aroundthe visual and

creative arts,and the artscouncilprovided

that opportunity.

Although Mirandahas no formal arts

background,she comesfrom acreative

family where art was an importantpart of

her life from an early age.

‘‘I used to draw constantlyand Iamnow

part of alocal creative arts class which

explores arange of mediums, whichI

love.’’

She has alsohad experience working as

avolunteer guide at the Christchurch Art

Gallery,where she was taught by Ann

Betts, whomshe described as awonderful

and insightful tutor.

Miranda beganaspresident last month

by curating the Black LivesMatter, Summer

Rawaah aprecious family member

By SHELLEY TOPP

WhenEnglish coupleAmanda

Scott­Richards and her husband,

Jeremy Richards, moved to New

Zealand in 2008,they paid £20,000

to bring ‘‘a special equinefriend’’

withthem.

‘‘Atthat time £20,000 converted

to $60,000 in New Zealand

currency andwas the deposit for a

house,’’ Amandasays.

It was ahuge cost for the young

couple but Rawaah, a

thoroughbredwho oncesold for

£750,000 as ayearling but was later

purchased by Amanda for only

£1000 afterhefailed to win arace,

‘‘isincrediblyspecial for so many

reasons’’, she says.

Before coming to New Zealand

the couple, who now live in West

Eyreton, ran an equestrianand

horse trekking business in West

Sussex, where Amanda says she

learnt alot workingwith Rawaah.

‘‘I am pretty sure he thinks he is

aperson in ahorse’sbody,’’she

says. And it is not justbecausehe

acquired ataste for gingernuts

after he began sharing Amanda’s

biscuits duringher tea breaks. ‘‘He

has beenanamazing teacher,’’she

says.

Long-time exhibitor steps up as president

By DAVID HILL

Being closer to town has

allowed Colin Nimmo to

become more involved in the

Kaikoura A&P Show, but he

still enjoys the wide open

spaces.

This year’s show president

has had along connection as an

exhibitor, but his involvement

was restricted because of the

relative isolation of Muzzle

Station in the Clarence Valley,

where he and his wife, Tina,

farmed for 35 years.

“I’ve been involved in the

show on and off for anumber of

years, but we lived in the

Clarence Valley, so our main

involvement was as an

exhibitor. We usually have

sheep, wool and horses in the

show.”

The couple’s daughter and

son­in­law, Fiona and Guy

Redfern, took over the running

of Muzzle Station about seven

years ago, with the Nimmos

moving to the Kaikoura flats.

“We are closer to town, but

we still can’t see the

neighbours,” Mr Nimmo said.

The Muzzle Station farming

operation has two finishing

blocks on the Kaikoura Inland

Road, with the Nimmos

responsible for one of those

farms, “so it keeps us busy”.

The family runs 12,000 stock

units of Merino sheep and beef

cattle. It was all Herefords until

recently, with Angus­cross cows

gradually being added to the

herd.

The Merino sheep were a

proven performer on New

Zealand’s most isolated high

country station, Mr Nimmo

said.

Most of the wool is supplied

on contract to the New Zealand

Merino Company.

“They suit our country and,

financially, they are the best

sheep for us to be in. Both the

wool and the meat have done

pretty well.

“The wool is still wanted and

Ithink anywhere where you can

run them, it’s definitely worth

it. But they are probably abit

limited in terms of the country

you can run them on.”

Conservation is important to

the Nimmos and Redferns.

doing the best they can for the

land. It’s important to look after

conservation and waterways

has got to be worthwhile from

an economic point of view

rather than legislation.

“The bulk of the station has

been farmed pretty

conservatively because that’s

the best way to do it.”

KAIKOURA A&P SHOW

18 North Canterbury News, February 18, 2021

Local support for show buoys committee

By DAVID HILL

After the challenges of the past

year, the Kaikoura A&P

Association is hoping to get

back to grass roots.

As the association counts

down to its 108th annual show

at the South Bay Racecourse on

Saturday, February 27,

president Colin Nimmo said

the theme “back to grass roots”

seemed appropriate, given the

uncertain Covid­19

environment.

“It’s what New Zealand is

getting back to in the current

environment. Ithink people

realise that producing food and

fibre is still very important in

New Zealand.

“A&P shows have always

been the gathering places and

it’s probably moved away from

that abit in recent times, but

hopefully we can continue to

inspire people to come

together.”

In line with the show theme,

the Kaikoura Museum will be

setting up adisplay of photos

from past shows in the main

marquee.

Show secretary Laura Page

said horse and sheep entries

were strong, while the

committee has been amazed by

the support from trade sites

and show sponsors.

Anticipating sponsorship

would be hard to obtain, given

that Kaikoura businesses are

affected by the absence of

overseas tourists, the

committee decided to organise

its own fundraising.

“Our president, Colin

Nimmo, decided to host a

fundraising trip to Quail Flat,

out the back of their farm

(Muzzle Station), and that was

awesome,” Ms Page said.

“But after being worried

about getting any sponsorship,

we have probably ended up

with the biggest sponsorship

year we’ve ever had.

“I think, despite the

challenges they are facing,

local businesses realise the

importance of our show,

because most of the riders,

exhibitors and trades come

from out of town, as well as all

the visitors.”

It makes achange from just

five years ago, when the

committee feared its 2017 show

would be the last because of a

lack of prospective committee

members and support.

The 2017 show was cancelled

because of the November 2016

earthquake, but the association

came back in 2018 and is now in

amuch stronger position.

Trade site bookings are

particularly strong, with

several new trade exhibitors

travelling from Christchurch,

Nelson and Blenheim.

“It comes back to there not

being many shows, so we’ve got

quite afew coming who have

heard that we’ve got quite a

cool wee show,” Ms Page said.

Horse entries were slow

coming in, but jumped from 60

entries to 185 in the last two

days.

“We’ve even had to turn

people away because we don’t

Well­supported ... Show secretary Laura Page says the organising committee has been amazed by the

support from trade sites and show sponsors this year.

have enough room in the

stables for them to stay

overnight,” she said.

Sheep entries were up from

25 last year to 65, with strong

support from local sheep

farmers, while shearing is back

at the show after the committee

was unable to find sheep to

shear last year.

“We’re very lucky to have Rob

Herbert join the committee. He

is alocal farmer and an exshearer

at the show and he’s

agreed to be shearing convenor

and he’s bringing the sheep,”

Ms Page said.

The novelty bicycle­powered

shearing is back and has been

moved to the bar tent, where it

will be held from 2.30pm, after

the grand parade, “to try to

keep people around for abit

longer”.

Fun times ... Good­natured challenges, such as asack race, await Kaikoura’s budding young farmers.

Fun challenges for children

By DAVID HILL

Budding young farmers are set

to feature at this year’s

Kaikoura A&P Show.

The Harcourts Future

Farmers’ Competition is being

introduced this year to

encourage school­aged

children to get involved in the

show.

‘‘The idea is to have aseries

of challenges such as asack

race, an egg­and­spoon race,

gumboot throwing and bestdressed

farmer, which will be

added together to give the

competitor aseries of points,

designed to choose the best

future farmer,’’ secretary Laura

Page says.

The competition will be open

to local children across three

age groups: under 7years, 7to

9, and 10 to 12.

The event will run at 10am

next to the main marquee.

For those who fancy

themselves as Robin Hood,

Bullock Road Bows from St

Anaud in the Nelson region will

be back at the Kaikoura A&P

Show this year. Bullock Road

Bows proved popular at last

year’s show, giving participants

ataste of archery.

Gates open at 8am for the

108th annual Kaikoura A&P

Show at the South Bay

Racecourse, with tickets $5 per

person, with children under 5

Mycotoxins ahidden

menace for horses

Is there ahiddenmenace in yourhorse

feed?

Horsescan be exposed to mycotoxinsby

eatingcontaminated feedingredients

suchasconcentrates(for example, grains

and proteinsupplements), hay and green

pasture.

The extent of mycotoxinexposure

depends on how much of the

contaminatedingredientisfed and the

mycotoxin concentration present in the

feed.

Any feed ingredientmay contain

multiplemycotoxins,whichcan become

moretoxic together than they would be

separately.

Mycotoxinsinhorses can cause awide

range of clinical signs, including

respiratory,gastronintestinal, neurologic

and reproductiveproblems.Obvious signs

may include tremors, fever, loss of

appetite,bloodyfaeces, and brownurine.

In extreme cases, it canleadtodeath.

Diagnosingmycotoxinexposure is abig

challenge.

Confirmation of adiagnosis usually

requires asample being tested by a

reliable,accredited laboratory.

The sample testedmay returnwith a

positive mycotoxin presence,but that

doesnot mean thewholebatchofhay or

feediscontaminated.

Mouldy feedshould be treated with

extremecare andpreferably notfed to

horses.

To minimise problems,itisbesttobuy

fromareputabledealer or producer.

The feedorhay should be stored so that

it is protectedfrommoisture andhas

space to allowair to circulate around the

product.

Thereisnoeasysolutionfor mycotoxin

prevention.

It has been said that mycotoxinsare

everywhere,and especiallywhenhumid,

hot, moist conditionsare present.

In research, some productshave been

showntoalleviatesomeofthe negative

effects of mycotoxinsinhorses.

It is common forpeople to add

mycotoxinbinders to their horse’s ration.

However,careshouldbetakento

choose abinderthathas research

published in relation to horses.

Binders aremore effectiveifapplied at

thetime of feedproduction, but they can

also be added to the horse’s dailyfeedby

Family affair ... Horses are central to the lives of sisters Eva, left, and Johanna Wylaars.

Sisters dedicated to a

life involving horses

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Johanna Wylaars is out of bed at 5.30amon

school days.

The 14­year­oldmucks out the horse

paddocksonthe family’s propertyin

Belfast, feeds her charges, and then heads

off to Marion College on the other side of

Christchurch.

When she getshome at 4pm, the Eyreton

Pony Club memberheads out to ride her

ponies, hoping to get in as muchtraining as

she can before it gets dark.

‘‘I sometimes get caughtinthe dark in

the winter,’’ she says.

Her hectic schedule and commitment is

matched by her 11­year­old sister, Eva,

who is also proving to be an adept rider.

Johanna is preparing to head northto

the Horse of the Year Show at Hastings

next month. Good results at qualifying

showjumping grand prix events has put

Johanna and her pony, Wembleybrook

Tiffany, in the hunt for atop finish.

‘‘I am leading on points at the moment,

but it is really close at the top. Ihope to

amassmore at the Ponyofthe Year Grand

Prix,’’ Johanna says.

Last year the pair did not do as wellas

hoped, withTiffany being alittle

overexcited by the atmosphere and being

in the mainring.

‘‘I hope to go better thisyear,’’ Johanna

says.

Tiffany isn’t the easiest of ponies to

manage. She was bought unbroken as a

five­year­old.

‘‘Shehas always been tricky to ride.She

is quitesensitive.’’

She hopes to do wellatHastings, but

‘‘anything can happen’’. Tiffany willbe

joined by Blossom, andLara on the

journey north,making abusy schedulefor

Johanna.

Eva willbetheretosupporther older

sister and help prepare the three mounts.

‘‘It is really neat at Horse of the Year

seeing all the differenttypes of riding like

games, showing and jumping,’’ she says.

The trip north is afamilyaffair. Mum

will be driving theirhorse truck, ahomeaway­from­home,

whileJohanna and Eva

will be looking after the ponies.

Dad, ‘‘whodoesn’t know much about

horses’’ willbegoing as well.

‘‘He’s our cook. He came lastyear and

made sure we had agood lunch and an

evening meal.You can’t really just grab a

few lollies to keep you going. It is pretty

draining.

‘‘It is important to eat well, and have

earlynights,when you are getting up early,

goingtoschool, and competingmost

weekends,’’ Johanna says.

Oldersister Elizabeth,who is studyingto

be avet, willhopefully be theretocheer

Johanna on.

Johanna says it is greatthat mum and

dad are so supportive. ‘‘But we have to

make sure we are on the ball, and doing

most of thework, doing our part and

making it happen.

‘‘It is pretty full on, and you don’t have

much of asociallife,’’Johanna says.

The girls’ mother, Pip Wylaars, who is

president of the EyretonPony Club, says

she does nothave to crack the whip too

much.‘‘Just sometimesweneed areset,’’

she says.

The family is on the road between 30 to

40 nights in the summer in their horse

truck. Theyhave had theirtruck for only a

year and have alreadyclocked14,000km in

Local young farmers eye regional final

By DAVID HILL

North Canterbury young farmer

Dean Gardiner is hoping for

better luck this year.

The Amuri Basin Young

Farmers’ Club member is one of

eight finalists in the 2021 FMG

Young Farmer of the Year

Tasman region final being held

at the Malvern A&P Show at

Sheffield on March 27.

After qualifying for last year’s

regional final, which was

cancelled because of Covid­19,

Mr Gardiner and Oxford­born

finalist Jeremy Kilgour were

looking forward to finally

competing in their first final.

Mr Gardiner, aNgai Tahu

descendant, grew up on asheep

and beef farm near Waipara.

He completed adouble

diploma in agriculture and farm

management at Lincoln

University.

The stock manager from

Kaiora Downs,near Culverden,

manages 10,000 stock units on a

1400ha property.

One day he plans to head home

and help his sister run the

family farms and continue their

parent’s legacy in coastal North

Canterbury.

Mr Gardiner says his goal in

the regional final is ‘‘to gain as

much experience and

knowledge as possible’’.

Mr Kilgour grew up on the

family pig farm at Oxford before

venturing overseas. He studied

business at Cayuga Community

College, part of the State

University of New York.

He later worked as acamp

counsellor and activity

instructor in New Hampshire in

the United States.

With experience in on­farm

systems in dairy, sheep, beef and

deer under his belt, he has also

travelled to China on asummer

scholarship to learn first­hand

about international

agribusiness and commerce.

He is now in his third year

studying for an agricultural

science degree at Lincoln

University.

He has also worked as an

agricultural contractor and

helped out on the family farm.

This year’s Tasman regional

final convenor, Cheyenne

Wilson, has abusy schedule over

the next few months.

She works on adairy farm,

manages ayoung stock farm and

is studying for acommerce

degree at Lincoln University.

When she is not working and

studying, Ms Wilson is akeen

hunter and enjoys spending time

in the back country.

She is also passionate about

working with young people to

showcase the opportunities in

the rural sector.

Good summer lifts sheep farmers

By DAVID HILL

The sheep industry is in good

spirits in Canterbury after a

successful season of ewe fairs.

Canterbury stock agents,

speaking at the Sheffield Ewe

Fair last Friday, said local

farmers are in goodspirits

despite the challenges of the

last year.

Hazlett livestockgeneral

manager Ed Marfellsaid the

sheep industry was in agood

space.‘‘SinceChristmas

there’s beenregularrains

which has allowed the ewes to

pick up quickly after weaning,

and they presentedthemselves

well today.

‘‘Whenyou think the world’s

restaurantsare closed, Iwould

say the sheep industry has

done pretty well this summer.’’

Peter Walsh &Associates

auctioneer Allister Orchard

had predicted asimilar

outcome at Sheffield to the

Hawarden Ewe Fair on

January 29 and he proved to be

close to the mark.

While the yardingof10,000

was lower thanexpected,the

day’s top priceatSheffield was

$250 paid for apen of mixedaged

Suffolkewes, aheadofthe

$234 paid at Hawarden.

The top­priced Suffolk ewes,

offered by HillvueFarm

Partnership, of Rolleston, were

exceptional sheep,MrMarfell

said.

‘‘They were big ewes. One of

them jumped over the fence

and Ihad to get it back in. It

had afair bit of weightonit.’’

Overall, prices were pretty

consistent, with mixed age

ewes selling particularly well,

and there was afull clearance

at Sheffield, Rural Livestock

Canterbury livestockmanager

Donald Cooke said.

Good conditioned two­tooth

andmixed­ageewes fetched in

excess of $180, asimilarresult

to Hawarden, he said.

‘‘It was agood result today

andthey’ve pretty much all

gone backontofarmsrather

than to be killed.’’

While the sales of older ewes

were exceptional, there

appeared to be lessinterest in

two­tooth ewes, Mr Marfell

said.

‘‘It’s adifferent typeofbuyer.

Alot of guyswho buy 5­year­old

ewes are going to be breeding

one season of lambsand then

kill it and the lamb, whereas

with the two­tooths you tend to

get four or fiveyears out of

them.’’

Ageneral trend in recent

seasons, in both the North and

South Islands, has been the

numberofbreedingewessent

to thefreezing works, which

was reflected in the smaller

yarding, Mr Orchardsaid.

Stockagents now turntheir

attention to the calf sales next

monthand then the winter bull

sales, which start in May.

Diamonds are forever

Sports day ahit with pupils

By DAVID HILL

Kaiapoi can lay claimtohaving the best softball

diamondsinCanterbury.

Canterbury Softball Association board deputy

chairmanTony Hensen, speaking at the official

opening of new softball facilities at NormanKirk

Park in Kaiapoi’s former red zone, said he was

impressed withthe new development.

The Kaiapoi Softball Club, founded in 2004, is the

only softball club in North Canterbury.

Mr Hensen said the clubboasted the newest

women’s and men’s premier sidesinthe

Canterbury competitionand couldnow claim the

best softball facilitiesinCanterbury.

‘‘The first thing that’sobvious to me is it’s

extremely spacious. You’ve got an awfullot of room

here. It’sgreat to see. You’ve got something here to

be very proud of.

‘‘They’ve got enoughspace to host major

tournaments.You could have 10 diamonds playing

at once, so there’s no reason why you couldn’t host

anational tournament here.I’m sure Kaiapoi

would lovetosee that happen and Ican see the club

developing this into an internationalfacility.’’

Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon threw the first

official pitch, beforethe Kaiapoi premierwomen’s

team tooktothe field againstPapanui forthe first

match on the maindiamond.

While the mayor admitted to beingnervous about

the pitch, he need not haveworried as he threwa

strikeonthe inside curve, according to theteam’s

catcher, Layla Bailey­McDowell, aformer Junior

White Soxplayer.

Mr Gordon said the councilhad spent$6million

Righting Rumours about the Proposed

Community Hub in Kaiapoi

Council is concerned to learn aleaflet containing

inaccurate information about the proposed

Kaiapoi community hub was distributed across

the community.

Community and Recreation Manager Chris Brown

says, “We’re really happy people are engaged with

this project and want to have asay. Iwant to

reiterate the proposal is still in the early stages

and we have anumber of planned touch points for

people to get involved.”

The proposed community hub site is on

regeneration land on the corners of Charters

Street and Courtenay Drive inKaiapoi. Community

hubs are flexible spaces that can be used for

different recreation, arts and hobby activities, and

social and cultural activities, similar to Northbrook

Studios in Rangiora.

Three local groups have expressed an interest

in locating at ahub -Kaiapoi Menz Shed, the

Kaiapoi Croquet Club, and Food Secure North

Canterbury. However, there would be additional

space available for community groups to use

through leases.

Directly affected residents have had an invite to an

info-session with the Community Board dropped

in their letterboxes, ahead of future and wider

engagement opportunities.

The Council want to address some of the issues

raised in the leaflet as well as questions by

residents onsocial media:

• The Council have not signed off on this project.

There is alot of work to do before acommunity

hub happens and it depends on community

support, adequate funding, resource consent and

the level of interest from community groups

• The project is at a‘concept level’ and Council

is exploring options for development. We

will beworking with the community as this

project develops

• Development stages include developing adra

master plan and guidelines for use. These will

be open to feedback from the community in the

next few months

• Council will also be seeking to allocate funding

through the dra 2021-2031 Long Term Plan

which is out for consultation in March-April 2021

• Aer these steps the project would need to go

through detailed design and resource consent.

Where do we want to be Waimakariri?

Council has finalised the dra 10 year budget –or

dra Long Term Plan –which goes out for public

engagement in March.

The Long Term Plan (LTP) is Council’s key strategic

document and sets out projects and priorities, as

well as how much it will cost and how itwill

be funded.

Over the next 10 years the Council is focused on

making sure we keep up with growth, Covid-19

economic recovery, climate change/sustainability,

and the impact of the Three Waters Review.

We’re specifically asking for feedback on:

• New community facilities for Pegasus and north

Woodend (Ravenswood)

• Upgrades to the Rangiora Library and wider

civic area

• Parking in Rangiora –including acar park building.

Mayor Dan Gordon says, “We’re conscious that

this LTPtakes place following Covid-19 lockdowns

and changes in Alert levels, at atime of economic

uncertainty, and with possible changes to how

services like reticulated wastewater and drinking

water are managed.

“For these reasons we’ve had to carefully balance

what the community can afford and the impacts

on households, without delaying building core

community facilities which encourage and foster

business and growth.”

The proposed rates increase if the dra LTPis

supported is 3.95 percent in the first year before

moving to 4.2 percent for the following years.

“There will be arange of events where you can

talk directly to acouncillor as well as ask questions

online. We want to hear your thoughts and

aspirations for the District.”

The dra LTPisopen for feedback between

4March and 12 April.

KAIAPOI CHRISTADELPHIANS

“The Key of Knowledge ..“(Luke 11:52)

“GOOD NEWS”

What the Bible says about Israel.

“But regarding Israel, GOD said, ‘All day long Iopened my

arms to them but they were disobedient and rebellious’.

Iask then,(says Paul) has GOD rejected HIS own people,

the nation of Israel? Of course not! Imyself am an Israelite,

adescendant of Abraham.....”. Romans 10:21 –11:1.
