Speed and style ... Ben Whalley, aged <strong>18</strong>,<br />

of Mandeville, shows the kind of form that<br />

took him to the pinnacle of Speedway racing<br />

in New Zealand. He is pictured at Oreti Park<br />

Speedway in Invercargill last year.<br />

Ben follows track legends<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

Mandeville teenager Ben<br />

Whalley is following in the<br />

footsteps of some legendary<br />

Kiwi sporting heroes, becoming<br />

the youngest person to win the<br />

New Zealand Speedway Solo<br />

Bike Championship.<br />

He won the title at Moore<br />

Park Speedway in West Melton<br />

on <strong>February</strong> 6, displacing an<br />

idol, four­time champion<br />

Bradley Wilson­Dean.<br />

Ben, at just <strong>18</strong>, emulated the<br />

New Zealand titles won by<br />

speedway legends Ivan Mauger,<br />

Ronnie Moore and Barry<br />

Briggs, all of whom went on to<br />

become world champions and<br />

household names.<br />

Ben has already followed up<br />

his championship win with a<br />

second placing at last week’s<br />

Burt Munro Challenge in<br />

Invercargill.<br />

Ben became interested in<br />

solo bike racing after his father,<br />

Neil Whalley, died suddenly 10<br />

years ago.<br />

He has worked hard under<br />

the mentorship of his maternal<br />

grandfather, Ivan Harris, a<br />

keen solo bike enthusiast, to<br />

claim the championship at such<br />

ayoung age.<br />

Ben loves the speed, thrill<br />

and tactical aspect of solo bike<br />

racing.<br />

Ivan is proud of what his<br />

grandson has achieved and also<br />

his ability to stay calm under<br />

pressure and listen and learn<br />

from mentors who have helped<br />

him along the way.<br />

Ben has two sleek methanolpowered<br />

racing solo bikes<br />

which can reach speeds of up to<br />

100kmh, but have no brakes.<br />

‘‘You race at full throttle the<br />

whole time,’’ he says. ‘‘After the<br />

chequered flag you just button<br />

off the throttle and they slow<br />

down pretty quick.’’<br />

Each finely tuned bike is<br />

custom­made to the riders’<br />

requirements and cannot be<br />

bought ready­made off the<br />

showroom floor.<br />

NCEA art bound for exhibition<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

Covid­19 has been the gift that keeps<br />

giving for Amberley teenager Lana<br />

Bonnett.<br />

Lana, aged <strong>18</strong>, made Covid­19 the<br />

subject of her NCEA level­3 sculpture<br />

portfolio during her final year at<br />

Rangiora High School last year.<br />

She first learnt about the virus in<br />

January last year but never dreamt it<br />

would become aglobal pandemic.<br />

However, as the virus spread, it<br />

provided Lana with arich vein of ideas<br />

for her portfolio.<br />

Her work earned an ‘‘excellence in<br />

visual art’’ grading, the highest<br />

achievement possible, from the New<br />

Zealand Qualifications Authority<br />

(NZQA).<br />

Then, late last month she was invited<br />

to submit her portfolio for this year’s<br />

NZQA Top Art Exhibition.<br />

Lana is pleased her portfolio has been<br />

received so well, and excited to have her<br />

work included in the exhibition with 59<br />

other students who also achieved an<br />

‘‘excellence in visual art’’ (design,<br />

painting, photography, printmaking and<br />

sculpture) grading at level 3in2020.<br />

The exhibition will tour later this<br />

year.<br />

The invitation surprised Lana, who is<br />

grateful for the support from Rangiora<br />

High School art teacher Jan Robertson.<br />

‘‘She is my favourite teacher ever.<br />

Anything Ineeded she was always there<br />

to help.’’<br />

Jan says she enjoyed teaching the<br />

talented teenager.<br />

‘‘Lana is an empathetic, motivated<br />

young woman who responded so well to<br />

suggestions, and her maturity meant you<br />

could chat to her, critique her work and<br />

offer suggestions and she would then<br />

respond to this,’’ Jan says.<br />

‘‘She rightly deserved the grades she<br />

received in these subjects as they are<br />

demanding subjects which require a<br />

high level of self discipline and<br />

commitment.<br />

‘‘I know she will do well in whatever<br />

Bonnett’s artwork has been recognised.<br />

she does and Iwish her all the best for<br />

her studies over the next few years.’’<br />

Lana says she has always had amind<br />

for art and decided to study it at school.<br />

She plans to be an architect and<br />

headed to Wellington last Saturday to<br />

begin studying for aBachelor of<br />

Architectural Studies at Victoria<br />

University. After she completes the<br />

three­year degree, she is hoping to<br />

continue her studies for aMasters at the<br />

prestigious Delft University of<br />

Technology in The Netherlands.<br />

‘‘That will depend on whether Covid­<br />

19 is still around,’’ she says.<br />

Lana is keen to study at Delft because<br />

it is rated as one of the world’s top two<br />

universities for architectural studies<br />

and she has family there, as her mother,<br />

Rianne, is from The Netherlands.<br />

KAIKŌURA VIEWS<br />

MAYOR CRAIG MACKLE<br />

Let’ssupport each other<br />

I’ve enjoyed working with our new chief<br />

executive, Will Doughty, over the last<br />

coupleofweeks.<br />

Will has agood understanding of the<br />

issuesfacing us and has quicklygot up<br />

to speed with council projects.<br />

I’ve been mightilyimpressed so far<br />

and Iamlooking forward to working<br />

with him and the rest of the council<br />

team.<br />

In the first stageofthe Government’s<br />

three watersreform programme, the<br />

council will be spending $1.88 millionof<br />

Crown funds to repair and upgrade<br />

water supplysystemsinthe district over<br />

the next <strong>18</strong> months.<br />

Several projects are in the pipeline<br />

(excuse the pun). Physical workshave<br />

already startedtoreconfigurethe<br />

suburban water scheme to connectto<br />

the urbanwater supply network.<br />

This will improve the water qualityto<br />

suburban residents and enable us to<br />

removethe boilwater noticethat has<br />

been in place since the earthquakes.<br />

Repairs to haulroutes on the<br />

Kaikoura Flatsare well under way.<br />

While theremay be someshort-term<br />

inconvenience, the worksare agood<br />

outcome and have been completely<br />

fundedbythe New Zealand Transport<br />

Agency as part of its commitment to<br />

remediate the roads in the district after<br />

the 2016 earthquake.<br />

As well as projects on the ground, the<br />

council team is working on all the<br />

background planning and paperwork<br />

requiredfor the Long-Term Plan (LTP),<br />

covering<strong>2021</strong> to 2031.<br />

This includes planning the budgets<br />

for the next 10 years and a30-year<br />

infrastructure strategy lookingathow<br />

we manage our assets, to ensure they<br />

meet the needsofour community now,<br />

and what we might need for the future.<br />

At thisstage, formal consultation on<br />

the LTP is scheduled for late May/June.<br />

Ihave beentalking to afew of you on<br />

the streets. It feels like everyone is<br />

doing what they can to reassess and<br />

adapt their businesses to life in<br />

Kaikourawithoutinternational tourists.<br />

While there are someactions that<br />

people can take, Ithinkmany of us are<br />

also waiting to see what is going to<br />

happen, and where that willleave us as<br />

acommunity.<br />

Iknow these are tough times, so Iurge<br />

you to support each other and buy local<br />

wheneveryou can.<br />

Students acknowledge<br />

central role of treaty<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Waitangi Day was achance for Kaiapoi<br />

High School’snew headstudents to<br />

introducethemselves to theircommunity<br />

and speak about the importance of New<br />

Zealand’s national day.<br />

Charlie Wicksand Hunter Henley come<br />

from different culturalbackgrounds but<br />

both saidWaitangi Day was importantto<br />

theirfamilies. The pair addressed those<br />

who gathered in Kaiapoi to mark the day.<br />

Charlie said her whanau came together<br />

each year to markWaitangiDay and had<br />

learned about thesignificance of the day<br />

whileattending TuahiwiSchool.<br />

‘‘Growingup, Iwas fortunate to attend a<br />

bilingualprimary school whichensured its<br />

students learned about whathappenedon<br />

<strong>February</strong> 6, <strong>18</strong>40. When Ireached high<br />

school, in Year 9insocial studiesI<br />

realised most kids didn’teven know why<br />

todaywas even calledWaitangi.<br />

‘‘It is crucialthat our tamariki and our<br />

whanau are awareofwhat Waitangi Day<br />

commemorates and acknowledges.<br />

‘‘We celebrate todaybyremembering<br />

and acknowledgingthe signing of the<br />

treaty just over <strong>18</strong>0 years ago.’’<br />

The treaty was signedbyQueen<br />

Victoria’srepresentative,Governor<br />

William Hobson, and Maori chiefs at<br />

Waitangi.<br />

‘‘Waitangi Dayisn’tjust aholiday. It’s a<br />

day when we celebrate our country’s rich<br />

culturalhistorybyembracing and learning<br />

Youth leaders ... Kaiapoi High School<br />

head students Charlie Wicks, left, and<br />

Hunter Henley.<br />

from our past,valuing our indigenous<br />

peopleand our multi-cultural diversity.’’<br />

Hunter, who talked of his Pakeha and<br />

Japanese heritage,gave an emotional<br />

address in which he spoke about his late<br />

father, born on Waitangi Day.<br />

‘‘While Iwas writing this speech, mum<br />

told me that my dad thought he was born<br />

on this day for apurpose, to help bring<br />

peopletogether,which is whatthe treaty<br />

has done.’’<br />

Hunteradmittedhehad alot to learn<br />

about Waitangi Day. ‘‘I’membarrassed to<br />

admit Iamone of those kidsCharlie has<br />

mentioned in her speech, who hasn’t been<br />

taughtmuch aboutWaitangi Day, which I<br />

regretand Iamslowly rectifying.’’<br />

But he was familiar with some of<br />

Kaiapoi’shistory as agathering place for<br />

Ngai Tahu,and its role in trade.<br />

Local firms show resilience in aCovid-affected year<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

There are plenty of positives<br />

for <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong>’s<br />

economy, despite the ongoing<br />

uncertainty of Covid-19.<br />

Enterprise <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

(ENC) business<br />

development manager Miles<br />

Dalton says most local<br />

businesses are in agood space,<br />

despite the challenges of the<br />

past year.<br />

‘‘I do think <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> has done so much<br />

better than other regions<br />

because we are not reliant on<br />

tourism and we’ve come<br />

through the earthquakes, so<br />

most businesses have<br />

processes in place to get<br />

through.<br />

ENC interviewed more than<br />

900 businesses seeking<br />

assistance in the nine months<br />

from March last year,<br />

compared to the usual 250<br />

interviews in ayear.<br />

While asmall percentage of<br />

businesses have closed, most<br />

have come through, he says.<br />

‘‘There’s still some fragility<br />

in some industries, but on the<br />

whole most businesses seem to<br />

be doing reasonably well.’’<br />

Based on anecdotal<br />

evidence, Mr Dalton says<br />

while the official<br />

unemployment rate is lower<br />

than 12 months ago, people<br />

working in part-time or casual<br />

jobs appear to have suffered<br />

the biggest impact.<br />

Scout den repaired, ready for use<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

The Kaiapoi Gray Raven Scout Den has<br />

been reborn adecade after it suffered<br />

serious earthquake damage.<br />

The scout den suffered in the 2010 and<br />

2011 <strong>Canterbury</strong> earthquakes, with one<br />

wall slumping by 40 millimetres. The<br />

building was deemed unsafe.<br />

For the last decade the Kaiapoi keas,<br />

cubs and scouts, as well as the Gray<br />

Raven venturers, have been using rooms<br />

at Blue Skies, but New Zealand’s oldest<br />

scout troop will finally have its own<br />

scout den again next month.<br />

and it’s probably the most modern scout<br />

den in the southern hemisphere,’’ group<br />

leader Chris Thompson says.<br />

The repair was along time coming, as<br />

the scout group waited for decisions<br />

from insurance, Scouting New Zealand<br />

and the Waimakariri District Council.<br />

‘‘It was in 2019 when everything finally<br />

fell into place and we got acouple of<br />

builders on board, and then Covid<br />

slowed things down,’’ Mr Thompson<br />

says.<br />

But with the support of Scouting New<br />

Zealand and the community, the repairs<br />

have finally been completed.<br />

birth day of the scouting movement’s<br />

founder, Robert Baden­Powell.<br />

The group will be joined by the other<br />

Waimakariri scout groups for the<br />

occasion.<br />

‘‘The official opening will be from<br />

11am to 12pm and then it will progress<br />

into aFounder’s Day event and the<br />

public can have alook around the den,’’<br />

Mr Thompson says.<br />

established in Kaiapoi in 1908, and<br />

descendants of Kaiapoi’s first scout<br />

leader, Ted Mallasch, will be attending.<br />

former cub, and former cub leader and<br />

Kaiapoi­Tuahiwi Community Board<br />

chairwoman Chris Greengrass will be<br />

attending, along with representatives<br />

from Scouting New Zealand.<br />

Mr Thompson says the scout den will<br />

cater for about 50 children and young<br />

people each week, including seven to<br />

eight keas, 15 cubs and 12 scouts.<br />

There are about 15 members in the<br />

Gray Raven venturer unit, which serves<br />

the Waimakariri district, with the older<br />

venturers looking at forming anew rover<br />

scout group.<br />

The scout den will be available for<br />

hire by the community when not being<br />

used by the scouts.

Timber firm chalks up 100 years<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Kaiapoi’s Sutherland familyiscelebrating<br />

100 years in business.<br />

Sutherland Timber wasestablishedin<br />

Southlandafterbeing conceived by two<br />

brothers corresponding during World<br />

War 1.<br />

The business remainsinthe same<br />

family, withMurray Sutherland having<br />

handed over the reins to the fifth<br />

generation.<br />

Eldest son Jonnieisnow managing<br />

director, with second son Davie running<br />

the Kaiapoi ITM timber yard and daughter<br />

Amy Sherwinlooking after the marketing.<br />

Sutherland Timber became<br />

incorporated in 1920, but anniversary<br />

celebrations were delayed because of<br />

Covid­19, Amy says.<br />

‘‘It’s pretty exciting times.We<br />

acknowledged it as afamily last year, but<br />

now it’s time to celebrate it withour staff.<br />

‘‘It’s apretty special story how it started,<br />

with two brothers writing to each other<br />

whiletheywere in the war, and they<br />

started to plantostart something when<br />

they came back.’’<br />

Whileone of the brothers was killedin<br />

action, Murray’s grandfather returned<br />

home safely and persuadedhis father to<br />

bankrollthe establishment of asawmillat<br />

Tuatapere.<br />

After12years, the sawmill was relocated<br />

to the Caitlins on the Otago coast, with the<br />

focusbeing on native timberproduction.<br />

The business relocated to Cheviot after<br />

WorldWar 2, with the focusmoving to<br />

Pinusradiata timber. It later movedto<br />

Kaiapoi in 1956, when Murraywas a<br />

toddler.<br />

Afterashort stintaway fromhome,<br />

Murray returned to Kaiapoi withhis wife,<br />

Annie, 38 years ago to take over the<br />

running of the business.<br />

‘‘I’ve been here 38 years and in that time<br />

we’veexpanded into the exportmarketin<br />

the 1990s with furniture gradetimbers,<br />

and our logs are all locally sourced from<br />

Ashley Forest and Hanmer State Forest.’’<br />

In recent years, SutherlandTimberhas<br />

established strong marketswith Douglas<br />

fir.<br />

Murray continues to be activeinthe<br />

business, with eldest sonJonnie as<br />

managing director.‘‘You’ve got to have<br />

one personsteering the ship,’’Murray<br />

says.<br />

‘‘Butit’s very much ateam effort,’’<br />

Jonnie adds. ‘‘I’ve been aroundthe place<br />

sinceIwas akid and I’ve alwayshad a<br />

passion for the timber andthe engineering<br />

that goes with it.’’<br />

Family business... JonnieSutherland, left,is<br />

The algal bloom health warning issued<br />

for Lake Pegasus on November 30 has<br />

been lifted by the <strong>Canterbury</strong> District<br />

Health Board’s community and public<br />

toxic blue­green algae (planktonic<br />

cyanobacteria) has reduced and<br />

concentrationsare now below levels that<br />

would be of concern to public health.<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> medical officer of health<br />

Dr Cheryl Brunton says sampling of Lake<br />

Pegasus will continue weekly in summer.<br />

“The public will be informed if testing<br />

“It’s an indescribable feeling to knowthatyourchild canhearyou”<br />

When Renee Cain learned her son<br />

was born profoundly deaf she was in<br />

shock. It was 2016, and little Jackson<br />

was only days old when hewas given<br />

ahearing test that all new babies<br />

receive, but his results weren’twhat<br />

they’d hoped for.<br />

Renee says it took quite awhile for<br />

the news tosink in, and it was heartwrenching<br />

when it did.<br />

“We tried hearing aids and we<br />

thought hecould hear things, like<br />

doors banging, but they weren’t<br />

working at all,” says Renee, who lives<br />

in Rangiora.<br />

With alot of support and information,<br />

Renee decided that cochlear implants<br />

were the right option for Jackson and<br />

their family. Acochlear implant is a<br />

surgically-implanted electronic device<br />

that restores hearing for those with<br />

profound hearing loss.<br />

At six-months-old<br />

Jackson underwent<br />

surgery to have the<br />

implants fitted.<br />

The surgery was<br />

arranged by<br />

the Southern<br />

Cochlear<br />

Implant<br />

Programme<br />

(SCIP) in<br />

Christchurch.<br />

Renee<br />

remembers when<br />

her little boy could<br />

finally hear her voice.<br />

“His face lit up and<br />

he had abig smile when I<br />

spoke. It brought tears to my eyes,”<br />

she says.<br />

“It’s anindescribable<br />

feeling to know that<br />

your child can hear<br />

you. When he heard<br />

sounds for the first<br />

time he had alook<br />

of amazement on<br />

his face.”<br />

Jackson, now<br />

four, will start<br />

at Southbrook<br />

School in<br />

Rangiora later this<br />

year.<br />

“I never knew about<br />

cochlear implants<br />

until Iwas in this<br />

situation,” says Renee.<br />

“It’s amazing what technology can do.”<br />

Established in 2003, SCIP is one of<br />

two cochlear implant providers in<br />

New Zealand.<br />

The not-for-profit organisation<br />

currently provides care to more than<br />

950 adults and children throughout<br />

the South Island and as far north as<br />

Taupo. Its offices in Christchurch<br />

and Wellington are complimented by<br />

regular visiting clinics throughout the<br />

catchment area.<br />

SCIP performs all cochlear implant<br />

assessments, arranges surgery,<br />

activates the cochlear implant,<br />

administers adjustments and provides<br />

post-implant rehabilitation services.<br />

RangioraLions Club Chooses SCIP forRamble<br />

Following aspeaker from SCIP coming<br />

to talk to members the Rangiora Lions<br />

Club decided to nominate SCIP as the<br />

cause for the Ashley River Ramble<br />

<strong>2021</strong>.<br />

This is the 5th year of the Ramble,<br />

with previous recipients including Koru<br />

Care, Diabetes NZ and the Ashley-<br />

Rakahuri Rivercare group. The event<br />

evolved out of the Lions Club Rangiora<br />

-Kaiapoi Fun Run, and provides a<br />

relaxed family friendly event with great<br />

scenery ofthe river which is home to<br />

some of NZ’s rarest birds.<br />

ARR coordinator Kirstyn Barnett<br />

says the event is all about enjoying the<br />

outdoors with family and friends.<br />

“Every time Igotothe Ashley-<br />

Rakahuri river Isee something new.<br />

We are so lucky to have this national<br />

treasure in our backyard, so easily<br />

accessible for cyclists and walkers.”<br />

She is delighted that the funds raised<br />

from the event will go towards helping<br />

local people enjoy abetter quality of<br />

life.<br />

New head for arts body<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

Fernside’sMirandaHales is enjoying her<br />

new role as chairwoman of the<br />

Waimakariri Community Arts Council<br />

(WCAC).<br />

‘‘It gives me equal amounts of pleasure<br />

to not only giveartists aplatform to<br />

showcase theirwork, but alsofor the<br />

public to be able to come and enjoy it,’’ she<br />

says.<br />

Miranda replacedBrian Hoult,who<br />

resignedaschairman last December.<br />

‘‘Brian did asuperb job for manyyears,’’<br />

she said.<br />

Miranda’s own involvementwiththe<br />

council has also beenlengthy —‘‘about27<br />

years’’.<br />

She wanted to joinalocal organisation<br />

that revolved aroundthe visual and<br />

creative arts,and the artscouncilprovided<br />

that opportunity.<br />

Although Mirandahas no formal arts<br />

background,she comesfrom acreative<br />

family where art was an importantpart of<br />

her life from an early age.<br />

‘‘I used to draw constantlyand Iamnow<br />

part of alocal creative arts class which<br />

explores arange of mediums, whichI<br />

love.’’<br />

She has alsohad experience working as<br />

avolunteer guide at the Christchurch Art<br />

Gallery,where she was taught by Ann<br />

Betts, whomshe described as awonderful<br />

and insightful tutor.<br />

Miranda beganaspresident last month<br />

by curating the Black LivesMatter, Summer<br />

of Protest photographic exhibition by her<br />

London­baseddaughter, Fran,at<br />

Rangiora’sChamber Gallery.<br />

‘‘It was apleasure and privilege to have<br />

Fran’s exhibition as my first as<br />

chairwoman,’’ Miranda says. ‘‘Herwork is<br />

poignant and moving, and highlights the<br />

importance of awell­overdueglobal<br />

Although the Chamber Gallery at<br />

Rangiora Libraryisthe council’s venuefor<br />

art exhibitions, it is also apopular setting<br />

for livemusic concerts. The arts council<br />

supports local artistsbut it also has an<br />

open submission policy.<br />

‘‘We like to show adiverse range of<br />

artworks,’’ Mirandasays. ‘‘It is great to see<br />

artists fromfurther afield showing interest<br />

in exhibiting their work with us.’’<br />

Rawaah aprecious family member<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

WhenEnglish coupleAmanda<br />

Scott­Richards and her husband,<br />

Jeremy Richards, moved to New<br />

Zealand in 2008,they paid £20,000<br />

to bring ‘‘a special equinefriend’’<br />

withthem.<br />

‘‘Atthat time £20,000 converted<br />

to $60,000 in New Zealand<br />

currency andwas the deposit for a<br />

house,’’ Amandasays.<br />

It was ahuge cost for the young<br />

couple but Rawaah, a<br />

thoroughbredwho oncesold for<br />

£750,000 as ayearling but was later<br />

purchased by Amanda for only<br />

£1000 afterhefailed to win arace,<br />

‘‘isincrediblyspecial for so many<br />

reasons’’, she says.<br />

Before coming to New Zealand<br />

the couple, who now live in West<br />

Eyreton, ran an equestrianand<br />

horse trekking business in West<br />

Sussex, where Amanda says she<br />

learnt alot workingwith Rawaah.<br />

‘‘I am pretty sure he thinks he is<br />

aperson in ahorse’sbody,’’she<br />

says. And it is not justbecausehe<br />

acquired ataste for gingernuts<br />

after he began sharing Amanda’s<br />

biscuits duringher tea breaks. ‘‘He<br />

has beenanamazing teacher,’’she<br />

says.<br />

WhenAmandafirst gotRawaah<br />

as afour­year­old, he was an<br />

institutionalised racehorsewho<br />

had been stabled 24 hours aday,<br />

having been trainedinastring of<br />

100 otherhorses.<br />

‘‘Hehad never jumped or done<br />

Soulmates ... Amanda Scott­Richards, with her daughter Poppy, aged 6, and their special English­born<br />

thoroughbred Rawaah. Amanda and her husband, Jeremy, couldn’t bear to leave him behind when they moved<br />

‘‘I hadtoacquirealot of new<br />

skillstoretrain him.’’<br />

However, after two years using<br />

the new natural horsemanship<br />

methods she had learnt, the<br />

chestnut gelding, whoisnow 20,<br />

was competing in dressage,<br />

showjumping and leading out<br />

treks.<br />

He also helped Amanda run<br />

therapysessions for amental<br />

health charity calledMIND, which<br />

is basedinBritain.<br />

‘‘Rawaahhas taken care of me<br />

and my three children since Ihave<br />

had him,with my youngestriding<br />

him when she was only two years<br />

old.<br />

‘‘I feel very fortunatetohave<br />

suchaspecial horse in my lifeand<br />

he reallyisone of thefamily, and<br />

always will be.’’<br />

Sick leave<br />

submission<br />

Abill proposing to extend<br />

sick leave entitlements<br />

will be adouble­edged<br />

swordfor rural<br />

communities,Rural<br />

WomenNew Zealand says.<br />

The bill, introduced to<br />

parliament last November,<br />

wouldincrease annual<br />

sick leave entitlements<br />

from five to 10 days.<br />

This month, Rural<br />

WomenNew Zealand<br />

askedparliament’s<br />

Educationand Workforce<br />

Select Committee to<br />

reconcile the need to<br />

understand how to support<br />

improved health and<br />

mental well­being in rural<br />

communities withthe<br />

challenges that a<br />

mandatory 10 days of sick<br />

leavewould bring to rural<br />

businesses.<br />

‘‘Whilst10days sick<br />

leaveisgreat for<br />

employees, it willalso be<br />

challengingfor some rural<br />

employers, and so it is<br />

important forParliament<br />

to consider both elements<br />

to understand any adverse<br />

effects on rural<br />

communities if this is<br />

made mandatory,’’its<br />

social issues convenor,<br />

KAIKOURA A&P SHOW<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> <strong>News</strong>, <strong>February</strong> <strong>18</strong>, <strong>2021</strong><br />

17<br />

Long-time exhibitor steps up as president<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Being closer to town has<br />

allowed Colin Nimmo to<br />

become more involved in the<br />

Kaikoura A&P Show, but he<br />

still enjoys the wide open<br />

spaces.<br />

This year’s show president<br />

has had along connection as an<br />

exhibitor, but his involvement<br />

was restricted because of the<br />

relative isolation of Muzzle<br />

Station in the Clarence Valley,<br />

where he and his wife, Tina,<br />

farmed for 35 years.<br />

“I’ve been involved in the<br />

show on and off for anumber of<br />

years, but we lived in the<br />

Clarence Valley, so our main<br />

involvement was as an<br />

exhibitor. We usually have<br />

sheep, wool and horses in the<br />

show.”<br />

The couple’s daughter and<br />

son­in­law, Fiona and Guy<br />

Redfern, took over the running<br />

of Muzzle Station about seven<br />

years ago, with the Nimmos<br />

moving to the Kaikoura flats.<br />

“We are closer to town, but<br />

we still can’t see the<br />

neighbours,” Mr Nimmo said.<br />

The Muzzle Station farming<br />

operation has two finishing<br />

blocks on the Kaikoura Inland<br />

Road, with the Nimmos<br />

responsible for one of those<br />

farms, “so it keeps us busy”.<br />

The family runs 12,000 stock<br />

units of Merino sheep and beef<br />

cattle. It was all Herefords until<br />

recently, with Angus­cross cows<br />

gradually being added to the<br />

herd.<br />

The Merino sheep were a<br />

It’s show time ... Colin and Tina Nimmo are looking forward to the Kaikoura A&P Show.<br />

proven performer on New<br />

Zealand’s most isolated high<br />

country station, Mr Nimmo<br />

said.<br />

Most of the wool is supplied<br />

on contract to the New Zealand<br />

Merino Company.<br />

“They suit our country and,<br />

financially, they are the best<br />

sheep for us to be in. Both the<br />

wool and the meat have done<br />

pretty well.<br />

“The wool is still wanted and<br />

Ithink anywhere where you can<br />

run them, it’s definitely worth<br />

it. But they are probably abit<br />

limited in terms of the country<br />

you can run them on.”<br />

Conservation is important to<br />

the Nimmos and Redferns.<br />

“I think most people are<br />

doing the best they can for the<br />

land. It’s important to look after<br />

the land, but any work around<br />

PHOTO: SUPPLIED<br />

conservation and waterways<br />

has got to be worthwhile from<br />

an economic point of view<br />

rather than legislation.<br />

“The bulk of the station has<br />

been farmed pretty<br />

conservatively because that’s<br />

the best way to do it.”<br />

KAIKOURA A&P SHOW<br />

<strong>18</strong> <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> <strong>News</strong>, <strong>February</strong> <strong>18</strong>, <strong>2021</strong><br />

Local support for show buoys committee<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

After the challenges of the past<br />

year, the Kaikoura A&P<br />

Association is hoping to get<br />

back to grass roots.<br />

As the association counts<br />

down to its 108th annual show<br />

at the South Bay Racecourse on<br />

Saturday, <strong>February</strong> 27,<br />

president Colin Nimmo said<br />

the theme “back to grass roots”<br />

seemed appropriate, given the<br />

uncertain Covid­19<br />

environment.<br />

“It’s what New Zealand is<br />

getting back to in the current<br />

environment. Ithink people<br />

realise that producing food and<br />

fibre is still very important in<br />

New Zealand.<br />

“A&P shows have always<br />

been the gathering places and<br />

it’s probably moved away from<br />

that abit in recent times, but<br />

hopefully we can continue to<br />

inspire people to come<br />

together.”<br />

In line with the show theme,<br />

the Kaikoura Museum will be<br />

setting up adisplay of photos<br />

from past shows in the main<br />

marquee.<br />

Show secretary Laura Page<br />

said horse and sheep entries<br />

were strong, while the<br />

committee has been amazed by<br />

the support from trade sites<br />

and show sponsors.<br />

Anticipating sponsorship<br />

would be hard to obtain, given<br />

that Kaikoura businesses are<br />

affected by the absence of<br />

overseas tourists, the<br />

committee decided to organise<br />

its own fundraising.<br />

“Our president, Colin<br />

Nimmo, decided to host a<br />

fundraising trip to Quail Flat,<br />

out the back of their farm<br />

(Muzzle Station), and that was<br />

awesome,” Ms Page said.<br />

“But after being worried<br />

about getting any sponsorship,<br />

we have probably ended up<br />

with the biggest sponsorship<br />

year we’ve ever had.<br />

“I think, despite the<br />

challenges they are facing,<br />

local businesses realise the<br />

importance of our show,<br />

because most of the riders,<br />

exhibitors and trades come<br />

from out of town, as well as all<br />

the visitors.”<br />

It makes achange from just<br />

five years ago, when the<br />

committee feared its 2017 show<br />

would be the last because of a<br />

lack of prospective committee<br />

members and support.<br />

The 2017 show was cancelled<br />

because of the November 2016<br />

earthquake, but the association<br />

came back in 20<strong>18</strong> and is now in<br />

amuch stronger position.<br />

Trade site bookings are<br />

particularly strong, with<br />

several new trade exhibitors<br />

travelling from Christchurch,<br />

Nelson and Blenheim.<br />

“It comes back to there not<br />

being many shows, so we’ve got<br />

quite afew coming who have<br />

heard that we’ve got quite a<br />

cool wee show,” Ms Page said.<br />

Horse entries were slow<br />

coming in, but jumped from 60<br />

entries to <strong>18</strong>5 in the last two<br />

days.<br />

“We’ve even had to turn<br />

people away because we don’t<br />

Well­supported ... Show secretary Laura Page says the organising committee has been amazed by the<br />

support from trade sites and show sponsors this year.<br />

have enough room in the<br />

stables for them to stay<br />

overnight,” she said.<br />

Sheep entries were up from<br />

25 last year to 65, with strong<br />

support from local sheep<br />

farmers, while shearing is back<br />

at the show after the committee<br />

was unable to find sheep to<br />

shear last year.<br />

“We’re very lucky to have Rob<br />

Herbert join the committee. He<br />

is alocal farmer and an exshearer<br />

at the show and he’s<br />

agreed to be shearing convenor<br />

and he’s bringing the sheep,”<br />

Ms Page said.<br />

The novelty bicycle­powered<br />

shearing is back and has been<br />

moved to the bar tent, where it<br />

will be held from 2.30pm, after<br />

the grand parade, “to try to<br />

keep people around for abit<br />

longer”.<br />

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

Fun challenges for children<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Budding young farmers are set<br />

to feature at this year’s<br />

‘‘The idea is to have aseries<br />

of challenges such as asack<br />

race, an egg­and­spoon race,<br />

gumboot throwing and bestdressed<br />

farmer, which will be<br />

added together to give the<br />

competitor aseries of points,<br />

designed to choose the best<br />

future farmer,’’ secretary Laura<br />

Page says.<br />

The competition will be open<br />

to local children across three<br />

age groups: under 7years, 7to<br />

9, and 10 to 12.<br />

The event will run at 10am<br />

themselves as Robin Hood,<br />

Bullock Road Bows from St<br />

Anaud in the Nelson region will<br />

be back at the Kaikoura A&P<br />

Show this year. Bullock Road<br />

Bows proved popular at last<br />

of Wakatu Quay.<br />

PGF funds for the Kaikōura Marine Development Project are to;<br />

Enhance economic development opportunities.<br />

Create sustainable jobs<br />

Boost social inclusion and participation<br />

Build resilient communities<br />

Recent engagement with the community has<br />

Mycotoxins ahidden<br />

menace for horses<br />

Is there ahiddenmenace in yourhorse<br />

feed?<br />

Horsescan be exposed to mycotoxinsby<br />

eatingcontaminated feedingredients<br />

suchasconcentrates(for example, grains<br />

and proteinsupplements), hay and green<br />

pasture.<br />

The extent of mycotoxinexposure<br />

depends on how much of the<br />

contaminatedingredientisfed and the<br />

mycotoxin concentration present in the<br />

feed.<br />

Any feed ingredientmay contain<br />

multiplemycotoxins,whichcan become<br />

moretoxic together than they would be<br />

separately.<br />

Mycotoxinsinhorses can cause awide<br />

range of clinical signs, including<br />

respiratory,gastronintestinal, neurologic<br />

and reproductiveproblems.Obvious signs<br />

may include tremors, fever, loss of<br />

appetite,bloodyfaeces, and brownurine.<br />

In extreme cases, it canleadtodeath.<br />

Diagnosingmycotoxinexposure is abig<br />

challenge.<br />

Confirmation of adiagnosis usually<br />

requires asample being tested by a<br />

reliable,accredited laboratory.<br />

The sample testedmay returnwith a<br />

positive mycotoxin presence,but that<br />

doesnot mean thewholebatchofhay or<br />

feediscontaminated.<br />

Mouldy feedshould be treated with<br />

extremecare andpreferably notfed to<br />

horses.<br />

To minimise problems,itisbesttobuy<br />

fromareputabledealer or producer.<br />

The feedorhay should be stored so that<br />

it is protectedfrommoisture andhas<br />

space to allowair to circulate around the<br />

product.<br />

Thereisnoeasysolutionfor mycotoxin<br />

prevention.<br />

It has been said that mycotoxinsare<br />

everywhere,and especiallywhenhumid,<br />

hot, moist conditionsare present.<br />

In research, some productshave been<br />

showntoalleviatesomeofthe negative<br />

effects of mycotoxinsinhorses.<br />

It is common forpeople to add<br />

mycotoxinbinders to their horse’s ration.<br />

However,careshouldbetakento<br />

published in relation to horses.<br />

Binders aremore effectiveifapplied at<br />

thetime of feedproduction, but they can<br />

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

They are pictured with Tiffany.<br />

Sisters dedicated to a<br />

life involving horses<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Johanna Wylaars is out of bed at 5.30amon<br />

school days.<br />

The 14­year­oldmucks out the horse<br />

paddocksonthe family’s propertyin<br />

Belfast, feeds her charges, and then heads<br />

off to Marion College on the other side of<br />

Christchurch.<br />

When she getshome at 4pm, the Eyreton<br />

Pony Club memberheads out to ride her<br />

ponies, hoping to get in as muchtraining as<br />

she can before it gets dark.<br />

‘‘I sometimes get caughtinthe dark in<br />

the winter,’’ she says.<br />

Her hectic schedule and commitment is<br />

matched by her 11­year­old sister, Eva,<br />

who is also proving to be an adept rider.<br />

Johanna is preparing to head northto<br />

the Horse of the Year Show at Hastings<br />

next month. Good results at qualifying<br />

showjumping grand prix events has put<br />

Johanna and her pony, Wembleybrook<br />

Tiffany, in the hunt for atop finish.<br />

‘‘I am leading on points at the moment,<br />

but it is really close at the top. Ihope to<br />

amassmore at the Ponyofthe Year Grand<br />

Prix,’’ Johanna says.<br />

Last year the pair did not do as wellas<br />

hoped, withTiffany being alittle<br />

overexcited by the atmosphere and being<br />

in the mainring.<br />

‘‘I hope to go better thisyear,’’ Johanna<br />

says.<br />

Tiffany isn’t the easiest of ponies to<br />

manage. She was bought unbroken as a<br />

five­year­old.<br />

‘‘Shehas always been tricky to ride.She<br />

is quitesensitive.’’<br />

She hopes to do wellatHastings, but<br />

‘‘anything can happen’’. Tiffany willbe<br />

joined by Blossom, andLara on the<br />

journey north,making abusy schedulefor<br />

Johanna.<br />

Eva willbetheretosupporther older<br />

sister and help prepare the three mounts.<br />

‘‘It is really neat at Horse of the Year<br />

seeing all the differenttypes of riding like<br />

games, showing and jumping,’’ she says.<br />

The trip north is afamilyaffair. Mum<br />

will be driving theirhorse truck, ahomeaway­from­home,<br />

whileJohanna and Eva<br />

will be looking after the ponies.<br />

Dad, ‘‘whodoesn’t know much about<br />

horses’’ willbegoing as well.<br />

‘‘He’s our cook. He came lastyear and<br />

made sure we had agood lunch and an<br />

evening meal.You can’t really just grab a<br />

few lollies to keep you going. It is pretty<br />

draining.<br />

‘‘It is important to eat well, and have<br />

earlynights,when you are getting up early,<br />

goingtoschool, and competingmost<br />

weekends,’’ Johanna says.<br />

Oldersister Elizabeth,who is studyingto<br />

be avet, willhopefully be theretocheer<br />

Johanna on.<br />

Johanna says it is greatthat mum and<br />

dad are so supportive. ‘‘But we have to<br />

make sure we are on the ball, and doing<br />

most of thework, doing our part and<br />

making it happen.<br />

‘‘It is pretty full on, and you don’t have<br />

much of asociallife,’’Johanna says.<br />

The girls’ mother, Pip Wylaars, who is<br />

president of the EyretonPony Club, says<br />

she does nothave to crack the whip too<br />

much.‘‘Just sometimesweneed areset,’’<br />

she says.<br />

The family is on the road between 30 to<br />

40 nights in the summer in their horse<br />

truck. Theyhave had theirtruck for only a<br />

year and have alreadyclocked14,000km in<br />

Local young farmers eye regional final<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> young farmer<br />

Dean Gardiner is hoping for<br />

better luck this year.<br />

The Amuri Basin Young<br />

Farmers’ Club member is one of<br />

eight finalists in the <strong>2021</strong> FMG<br />

Young Farmer of the Year<br />

Tasman region final being held<br />

at the Malvern A&P Show at<br />

Sheffield on March 27.<br />

After qualifying for last year’s<br />

regional final, which was<br />

cancelled because of Covid­19,<br />

Mr Gardiner and Oxford­born<br />

finalist Jeremy Kilgour were<br />

looking forward to finally<br />

competing in their first final.<br />

Mr Gardiner, aNgai Tahu<br />

descendant, grew up on asheep<br />

and beef farm near Waipara.<br />

He completed adouble<br />

diploma in agriculture and farm<br />

management at Lincoln<br />

University.<br />

The stock manager from<br />

Kaiora Downs,near Culverden,<br />

manages 10,000 stock units on a<br />

1400ha property.<br />

One day he plans to head home<br />

and help his sister run the<br />

family farms and continue their<br />

parent’s legacy in coastal <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong>.<br />

Mr Gardiner says his goal in<br />

the regional final is ‘‘to gain as<br />

much experience and<br />

knowledge as possible’’.<br />

Mr Kilgour grew up on the<br />

family pig farm at Oxford before<br />

venturing overseas. He studied<br />

business at Cayuga Community<br />

College, part of the State<br />

University of New York.<br />

He later worked as acamp<br />

counsellor and activity<br />

instructor in New Hampshire in<br />

the United States.<br />

With experience in on­farm<br />

systems in dairy, sheep, beef and<br />

deer under his belt, he has also<br />

travelled to China on asummer<br />

scholarship to learn first­hand<br />

about international<br />

agribusiness and commerce.<br />

He is now in his third year<br />

studying for an agricultural<br />

science degree at Lincoln<br />

University.<br />

He has also worked as an<br />

agricultural contractor and<br />

helped out on the family farm.<br />

This year’s Tasman regional<br />

final convenor, Cheyenne<br />

Wilson, has abusy schedule over<br />

the next few months.<br />

She works on adairy farm,<br />

manages ayoung stock farm and<br />

is studying for acommerce<br />

degree at Lincoln University.<br />

When she is not working and<br />

studying, Ms Wilson is akeen<br />

hunter and enjoys spending time<br />

in the back country.<br />

She is also passionate about<br />

working with young people to<br />

showcase the opportunities in<br />

the rural sector.<br />

‘‘Encouraging future leaders<br />

in the industry to develop their<br />

skill­set this season is agoal of<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> finalist ... Dean Gardiner will<br />

represent the Amuri Basin Young Farmers’ club in the<br />

Young Farmer of the Year Tasman region final.<br />

mine,’’ she says.<br />

‘‘I want to create an<br />

environment that will allow<br />

members in the region to grow<br />

and understand more about the<br />

contest while creating strong<br />

connections and networks.<br />

‘‘I hope to help connect<br />

members within the region with<br />

industry leaders, potential<br />

employers and mentors, while<br />

building everlasting<br />

friendships.’’<br />

Good summer lifts sheep farmers<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

The sheep industry is in good<br />

spirits in <strong>Canterbury</strong> after a<br />

successful season of ewe fairs.<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> stock agents,<br />

speaking at the Sheffield Ewe<br />

Fair last Friday, said local<br />

farmers are in goodspirits<br />

despite the challenges of the<br />

last year.<br />

Hazlett livestockgeneral<br />

manager Ed Marfellsaid the<br />

sheep industry was in agood<br />

space.‘‘SinceChristmas<br />

there’s beenregularrains<br />

which has allowed the ewes to<br />

pick up quickly after weaning,<br />

and they presentedthemselves<br />

well today.<br />

‘‘Whenyou think the world’s<br />

restaurantsare closed, Iwould<br />

say the sheep industry has<br />

done pretty well this summer.’’<br />

Peter Walsh &Associates<br />

auctioneer Allister Orchard<br />

had predicted asimilar<br />

outcome at Sheffield to the<br />

Hawarden Ewe Fair on<br />

January 29 and he proved to be<br />

close to the mark.<br />

While the yardingof10,000<br />

was lower thanexpected,the<br />

day’s top priceatSheffield was<br />

$250 paid for apen of mixedaged<br />

Suffolkewes, aheadofthe<br />

$234 paid at Hawarden.<br />

The top­priced Suffolk ewes,<br />

offered by HillvueFarm<br />

Partnership, of Rolleston, were<br />

exceptional sheep,MrMarfell<br />

said.<br />

‘‘They were big ewes. One of<br />

them jumped over the fence<br />

and Ihad to get it back in. It<br />

had afair bit of weightonit.’’<br />

Overall, prices were pretty<br />

consistent, with mixed age<br />

ewes selling particularly well,<br />

and there was afull clearance<br />

at Sheffield, Rural Livestock<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> livestockmanager<br />

Donald Cooke said.<br />

Good conditioned two­tooth<br />

andmixed­ageewes fetched in<br />

excess of $<strong>18</strong>0, asimilarresult<br />

to Hawarden, he said.<br />

‘‘It was agood result today<br />

andthey’ve pretty much all<br />

gone backontofarmsrather<br />

than to be killed.’’<br />

While the sales of older ewes<br />

were exceptional, there<br />

appeared to be lessinterest in<br />

two­tooth ewes, Mr Marfell<br />

said.<br />

‘‘It’s adifferent typeofbuyer.<br />

Alot of guyswho buy 5­year­old<br />

ewes are going to be breeding<br />

one season of lambsand then<br />

kill it and the lamb, whereas<br />

with the two­tooths you tend to<br />

get four or fiveyears out of<br />

them.’’<br />

Ageneral trend in recent<br />

seasons, in both the <strong>North</strong> and<br />

South Islands, has been the<br />

numberofbreedingewessent<br />

to thefreezing works, which<br />

was reflected in the smaller<br />

yarding, Mr Orchardsaid.<br />

Diamonds are forever<br />

Sports day ahit with pupils<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Kaiapoi can lay claimtohaving the best softball<br />

diamondsin<strong>Canterbury</strong>.<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> Softball Association board deputy<br />

chairmanTony Hensen, speaking at the official<br />

opening of new softball facilities at NormanKirk<br />

Park in Kaiapoi’s former red zone, said he was<br />

impressed withthe new development.<br />

The Kaiapoi Softball Club, founded in 2004, is the<br />

only softball club in <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong>.<br />

Mr Hensen said the clubboasted the newest<br />

women’s and men’s premier sidesinthe<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> competitionand couldnow claim the<br />

best softball facilitiesin<strong>Canterbury</strong>.<br />

‘‘The first thing that’sobvious to me is it’s<br />

extremely spacious. You’ve got an awfullot of room<br />

here. It’sgreat to see. You’ve got something here to<br />

be very proud of.<br />

‘‘They’ve got enoughspace to host major<br />

tournaments.You could have 10 diamonds playing<br />

at once, so there’s no reason why you couldn’t host<br />

anational tournament here.I’m sure Kaiapoi<br />

would lovetosee that happen and Ican see the club<br />

developing this into an internationalfacility.’’<br />

Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon threw the first<br />

official pitch, beforethe Kaiapoi premierwomen’s<br />

team tooktothe field againstPapanui forthe first<br />

match on the maindiamond.<br />

While the mayor admitted to beingnervous about<br />

the pitch, he need not haveworried as he threwa<br />

strikeonthe inside curve, according to theteam’s<br />

catcher, Layla Bailey­McDowell, aformer Junior<br />

White Soxplayer.<br />

Mr Gordon said the councilhad spent$6million<br />

developing Norman KirkPark, named after the<br />

formerprime minister who also served as Kaiapoi<br />

Mayor.The park has changingrooms,acar park, a<br />

dog park and ashared pathway passing through.<br />

manager Grant MacLeod, who plays for the Kaiapoi<br />

Softball Club, described the flexibility of the park<br />

set­up. ‘‘Onaday like today they can have juniors<br />

and seniorsheretogether, so it’s good forclub days.<br />

‘‘Softball is certainly apopular sport and, with<br />

havingteeball and junior teams, it’squite afamilyoriented<br />

sportwith two, andsometimes three,<br />

generations all playing for the club.’’<br />

The clubwas previously basedatthe Kaiapoi<br />

Domain, sharing withrugbyand cricket.<br />

Mr MacLeod saidconversationswere ongoing<br />

with other sportsclubs about using the new park,<br />

especially for winter sport.<br />

in locating at ahub -Kaiapoi Menz Shed, the<br />

Kaiapoi Croquet Club, and Food Secure <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong>. However, there would be additional<br />

space available for community groups to use<br />

through leases.<br />

Directly affected residents have had an invite to an<br />

info-session with the Community Board dropped<br />

in their letterboxes, ahead of future and wider<br />

engagement opportunities.<br />

The Council want to address some of the issues<br />

raised in the leaflet as well as questions by<br />

residents onsocial media:<br />

• The Council have not signed off on this project.<br />

There is alot of work to do before acommunity<br />

hub happens and it depends on community<br />

support, adequate funding, resource consent and<br />

the level of interest from community groups<br />

• The project is at a‘concept level’ and Council<br />

is exploring options for development. We<br />

will beworking with the community as this<br />

project develops<br />

• Development stages include developing adra<br />

master plan and guidelines for use. These will<br />

be open to feedback from the community in the<br />

next few months<br />

• Council will also be seeking to allocate funding<br />

through the dra <strong>2021</strong>-2031 Long Term Plan<br />

which is out for consultation in March-April <strong>2021</strong><br />

• Aer these steps the project would need to go<br />

through detailed design and resource consent.<br />

Where do we want to be Waimakariri?<br />

Council has finalised the dra 10 year budget –or<br />

dra Long Term Plan –which goes out for public<br />

engagement in March.<br />

The Long Term Plan (LTP) is Council’s key strategic<br />

document and sets out projects and priorities, as<br />

well as how much it will cost and how itwill<br />

be funded.<br />

Over the next 10 years the Council is focused on<br />

making sure we keep up with growth, Covid-19<br />

economic recovery, climate change/sustainability,<br />

and the impact of the Three Waters Review.<br />

We’re specifically asking for feedback on:<br />

• New community facilities for Pegasus and north<br />

Woodend (Ravenswood)<br />

• Upgrades to the Rangiora Library and wider<br />

civic area<br />

• Parking in Rangiora –including acar park building.<br />

Mayor Dan Gordon says, “We’re conscious that<br />

this LTPtakes place following Covid-19 lockdowns<br />

and changes in Alert levels, at atime of economic<br />

uncertainty, and with possible changes to how<br />

services like reticulated wastewater and drinking<br />

water are managed.<br />

“For these reasons we’ve had to carefully balance<br />

what the community can afford and the impacts<br />

on households, without delaying building core<br />

community facilities which encourage and foster<br />

business and growth.”<br />

The proposed rates increase if the dra LTPis<br />

supported is 3.95 percent in the first year before<br />

moving to 4.2 percent for the following years.<br />

“There will be arange of events where you can<br />

talk directly to acouncillor as well as ask questions<br />

online. We want to hear your thoughts and<br />

aspirations for the District.”<br />

The dra LTPisopen for feedback between<br />

4March and 12 April.<br />
