Angst over

big water

shake-up

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Massive changes in the

management of waterdelivery,

treatmentand disposal, likely

to affect every ratepayer, will

be laid out in March.

They are part of ahuge

shake­up by the Government,

which says comprehensive,

system­wide reform is needed

fordrinking,wastewater and

stormwater.

The ThreeWaters Reforms

to be announced next month

are likely to be the most

significant shake­up for local

government since the 1986

amalgamations.

Councils are likelytolose

controlofthese core services to

anew corporateentity.

Concerns havebeen aired by

community representatives

around the country that the

body, with no elected

personnel, will have no

accountabilitytoratepayers.

The reforms could alsosee

compulsory chlorination of

drinking water.

It willleave North

Canterbury councilspondering

their future, andwondering

what might be next in line for

Government reform.

There are67different

councilswhichown and

operate mostofthe country’s

drinking water,wastewater

andstormwater services.

The government says local

authorities face urgent

challenges in providing these

services, including funding,

meetingsafety standardsand

environmental expectations,as

wellasresiliencetonatural

hazards, climatechange, and

supporting growth.

It is likely the announcement

nextmonth will see water

services brought into asmall

number of entities encompassingmultipleregions.

The exactsize, shape and

design of theseentities is still

being workedthrough.

Private and community­run

water supplies could also find

themselves capturedbythe

reforms.

Hurunui Mayor Marie Black

and chiefexecutive Hamish

Dobbie are concerned their

residents and ratepayersknow

little aboutwhat the reforms

mean.

Theyfear the rural voice may

be lost, as big cities and urban

populations takethe lion’s

share of the limelight and

funding,once the changes kick

in.

‘‘Wedon’t want to be

scaremongering, but we want

there to be adeveloping

awarenesssopeople can make

informed decisions. It is not all

about local government. It is

about water and people.’’

Big artwork relocated

By SHELLEY TOPP

Nathan Pohio’s giant artwork,

Raise the anchor, unfurl the

sails, set course to the centre of

an ever setting sun! has been

temporarily removed from the

Waimakariri District Council

chambers.

It has been installed in the

Chamber Gallery, in the

Rangiora Library, where more

members of the public will be

able to see the widely

acclaimed work.

It was commissioned by the

Waimakariri Art Collection

Trust specifically for the

council chambers and was

initially installed there in July

2019.

The short­term move to the

Chamber Gallery has been

done to allow repair work to be

completed at the council’s

service centre in Rangiora.

The artwork is a

reproduction of a1905

Canterbury Times photograph

recording the British governorgeneral,

Lord Plunket, and his

wife, Lady Plunket, meeting

with Tuahuriri kaumatua at

Tuahiwi.

The reproduction is the

fourth version of the artwork,

which are all in permanent

collections.

The work will will remain on

show in the Chamber Gallery

until March 5.

The coursetookshape overthe past year,and

was finished during afrantic couple of months

leading into the event.

‘‘We weredoing hugehours to get the track

sorted, and to organise the event.

‘‘There was alot more involved than I

thought there would be,’’ Liam says.

It all went according to plan on the day,due

mainly to his parentsallowing him to use half

theirpaddocks to build the course, he says.

Sponsors swung in behind the event,

helping withthe groundwork and

infrastructure, and through donations to help

run the event and providingtrophies.

Liam says the eventwill be backnext year,

with afew minor changesand alarger

grandstand so people can seethe action.

He says ahighlight was adoubleback­flip by

one rider,which he landedsafely,justifying

the many hours put in makingthe jumps.

Prizewinnerswere: BestoverallBMX rider,

rider, Matt Begg; Best trickrider, Tyler Knox;

best style, Billy Meaclem.

Worry over water reforms

From Page 1

Mrs Black says the water unit might

simply change the colour of their

shirts and move down the corridor

to work under anew authority. But

there could also be more

substantial changes.

The governing authority would

likely be city­based, and those with

issues in the far flung Hurunui

rural district might be avoice in

the wilderness.

Mr Dobbie says he does not fear a

loss of jobs, as schemes still have to

be run. However, he questions

whether the current level of

service will remain, and at what

cost.

‘‘Will it be better?’’ he asks.

Mrs Black says there is ahuge

amount of trust between

landowners and the council’s water

staff. They knew to shut gates, and

about washing their vehicles

before entering properties to stop

the spread of pests such as Chilean

‘‘There were no prices on

She says this trust could be

watered down if staff were not

local. She also fears any problems

in remote areas might be put on the

back burner while water staff deal

with acity issue affecting more

people.

This had the potential to leave

farmers and stock in desperate

situations.

March will clarify the structure

of the governing body, based on the

Scottish model of water delivery

and disposal.

New Zealand could be divided

into about five regions, loosely

based on the present Super Rugby

franchises.

Mr Dobbie says there have

already been rumblings from one

large metropolitan area that says it

won’t embrace the reforms.

At first councils could opt in.

Now, they have to opt out.

‘‘The big boys need to be in it to

make it work,’’ he says.

Louise waited years for diagnosis

Louise Davy is determined not to let arare disease limit

howshe livesher life. She shares her story with Robyn

Bristow ahead of Rare Disease DayonSunday.

Rangiora’sLouise Davy was

told her health problems were

all in her head by aGP.

For more thanthree decades

she battled debilitating

migraines, dizziness,nausea,

and had difficulties with

balance.

At 37, after her brother paid

for her to see aneurologist, she

was diagnosedwith Episodic

Ataxia Type 2, acondition that

impairs movement.

People experience episodes

of poor co­ordination and or

balance (ataxia), which can last

several hours.They can have

difficulty speaking,double

vision, ringing in theirears,

muscle tremors, and

temporaryparalysis.

Episodes can be triggered by

external factors such as stress,

medication, fever, physical

exertion, caffeine, and alcohol.

It is believed to affectone in

100,000 people worldwide.

Louise is amember of the

Muscular Dystrophy

Association of New Zealand’s

Canterbury branch, and has

been told by the Neuromuscular

Disease Registrythat

she is the only Kiwi registered

withthe condition.

Louise, ateacher at

Southbrook School, is speaking

out about her rare disease,as

she feels she needs to advocate

for those with hidden diseases,

and to stop peoplefrom

judging thembecausethey are

not aware of whatthey are

living with. This includes using

disabledpeople’s car parks.

Louise clearlyremembersas

an 8­year­old feelingdizzy and

thinking she was going to be

sick. By 12 she was

misdiagnosedwith migraines.

Medicationdidn’t help.

‘‘I had blurry vision, Iwas

vomiting, unable to walk

straight. It was likeIwas

drunk.But migraine

medicationdidn’thelp. The

only thing that helpedwas

sleep, and letting the body

repair itself.’’

By the time she reached high

school she washavingthree

days off aweek on average

becauseshe was so sick.

As ayoung solo motherwith

two childrenshe became quite

introverted, and continuedto

fight increasing episodes. She

gave up on doctors, and when

she returned to teaching she

had areliever on standby,

along withher mum, who

would comeand pick her up

and takeher home whenan

episodehappened.

AGPrefused to refer her to

aneurological specialist

throughthe public system

becauseitwas supposedly

wasting aspecialist’s time.

Instead, he suggestedshe

needed apsychiatrist.

Eventually helpcame,

thankstoher brother, whopaid

for her to visit aneurologist. A

run around the park requested

by him during her consultation

brought on the symptoms, and

from there Louise’s life took a

turn for the better.

Medication helped her

adviceonhow to avoid stress—

the main trigger of her disease.

She changed GPs whenhe

refused to renewher scriptfor

the medication, believing the

disease was too rarefor Louise

to have it.

‘‘My mum was my biggest

supporter. She could see it

wasn’t in my head. She

believed in me,’’ Louise says.

Today, her children, Ben and

Jo, and her now husband, Pete,

are her greatest support,along

with an international

Facebookgroup.

‘‘Initially, Iasked lots of

questionsbut now I’m helping

other people. I’m making sure

that otherpeople don’tfeel as

Concerns over quarry'seffects on wells

By ROBYN BRISTOW

There is potential for groundwatertobe

contaminated from the proposed quarry

at Rangioraracecourse, opponents were

told at ameeting thisweek.

Residents attendingaStop the Quarry

meeting on Tuesdaynight learned the

proposed quarry was within the

Drinking Water ProtectionZonesfor

Rangiora.

The zones protect severallocal wells,

and bores. The bores supply Rangiora’s

back­up and emergencywater supplies.

JohnMather, who has facilitated

several meetings of residents, said the

paper, presented to the opponents,

outlinedthe significanceofthe

protection zones.

The Taggart application to ECan and

the Waimakariri District Council for the

quarry at the racecourse had a

‘‘worrying lackofcompliance’’ with

guidelines on disposal of class 5

material which wouldbeused to fill

areas excavated for gravel, it said.

‘‘The excavated areathen effectively

becomesalandfill, as the excavated

area is backfilled withclass 5material

sourcedfrom elsewhere,’’ the paper

said.

It raisedconcerns aboutthe backfill

containing unidentifiedcontaminated

material which could leach into

groundwater,with a‘‘consequentialrisk

of contaminationofnearbybores and

the backup/emergency watersupplies

for Rangiora’’.

Opponents are concerned at the large

amount of imported material that would

be required, some of whichcould

potentially be contaminated.

Momentum builds

for dark sky project

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Adark sky projectinKaikoura,if

successful, could provide aprecious

winter boost to tourism operators.

It will also be alegacy to the work of

the North Canterbury Transport

InfrastructureRecovery team(NCTIR).

AKaikoura Dark Sky Reserve

Working Grouphas takenoverfrom

NCTIRtolead aproject establishinga

dark sky reserve above Kaikoura,

bringing to life the vision of its project

manager, Tony Gallagher.

About50people attended a

presentation on the concept recently,

wherework already done on thereserve

was outlined along with what regulatory

toolsmight be needed to protectthe

nightsky from light pollution.

Working groupleader Nicky

McArthur said the presentation was

aimedatgetting community support,

finding funding options, and looking at

what tools might be neededtohelp

darken the skiesbystemming the flow

of light from the town.

She saysastrotourism opportunities

wouldbehigh during the winter, which

is traditionally theoff seasonfor

tourism in Kaikoura.

This would boostthe local economy

and highlight thecultural significance

of Matariki and Maorilore.

‘‘Kaikoura has the opportunity to

make the mostofdark sky tourism, with

aunique story of mountains to thesea,

and to the sky,’’she says.

Apre­applicationhas already been

lodged withthe InternationalDark­Sky

Association (IDA), and movesare afoot

to prepareamain application.

Nicky says the concept has been given

aboost by NCTIR, whichfunded three

monitors.Resultshave already shown

there is ‘‘some outstanding darkness’’.

The councilsupports the projectin

principle, and there is growing support

in the community.

The Royal Astronomical Societyof

New Zealand, the University of

Canterbury and the IDA are alsobehind

the project.

Nicky saysthere is an urgency to push

on with the projectand lobby the

council to considerregulations on

lightingwhen subdivision plans and

building activity arelodged with the

local authority.

She says the dark sky concept goes

beyondthe enjoyment that humans

would get fromareserve.

‘‘Nocturnal species are threatened by

light pollution and many arefacing

extinction. Losing our mothsand

insects fromthe bottomofthe food web

is havinghuge impacts worldwide,’’

Nicky says.

The presentation, hosted by the

working party and the Kaikoura

Museum, started with ashort slide show

from the evolving working group of

Nicky,DrLarry Field and Will Doughty,

who is Kaikoura’s new chief executive.

Guest speakers included Kyra Xavia,

aresearcher, writer, and dark sky

advocate basedinDunedin; andJohn

Hearnshaw, aNew Zealand astronomer

and Emeritus Professor of Astronomy at

the University of Canterbury.

Nicky says adark sky reservedoes not

mean ‘‘we are going to be in the dark’’.

Befriend a

tree,give

it adrink

By SHELLEY TOPP

Waimakariri residents are being

encouraged to water trees on the

berms outside their properties

during hot, dry weather.

Although the Waimakariri District

Council does watering rounds

during the summer, it is asking

residents to help by also watering

the trees.

‘‘If you have astreet tree outside

your house we would love it if you

could give it adrink,’’ council parks

community assets officer Greg

Barnard says.

‘‘Any water you can give the trees

will help them get through the hot,

dry summer.

‘‘A bucket of water every three or

four days will make all the

difference,’’ he says.

It is particularly important to keep

young trees well irrigated while they

are still getting established.

‘‘Once established, trees provide

added value to nearby properties

and are an important part of urban

life,’’ he says.

This is because they are

aesthetically pleasing, purify the air

by absorbing carbon dioxide and

releasing oxygen back into the

environment, provide shade and

sound barriers, help create

ecosystems to provide habitat for

birds and insects, reduce runoff, and

absorb pollutants.

lately havebeen marking milestones,

rebuilds,orare otherwise atestimony to

resilience.

On SundayIofficially reopenedthe

Kaiapoi Gray RavenScout building. It is

hometothe oldestscoutgroup in New

Zealand, established 112 years ago.

It is wonderful to see this building

reborn after the earthquake anditis

lookingfantastic. Well done to all the team,

but aparticularacknowledgement to

Group Leader Chris Thompsonfor his

leadership and the generosityand support

of so many that have helped get the

building fit to be reopened.

The weekend also recognised another

significant milestone for the Sutherland

family, which celebrated 100 yearsin

business.

Sutherland Timber and KaiapoiITM are

businesseswell known in Waimakariri.

CongratulationstoMurray, Annie, Jonnie,

Davie and Amy on achievingthis milestone

and for yoursignificantcontribution to our

local economy and community.

Hinemoa KaiapoiHockey Club also

celebrated 125 years afew weeksago. It is

the oldesthockey club in New Zealand. I

really enjoyed attending the club’s

celebrations. It’s great to see the club still

going strong.

On WaitangiDay we opened the new

softball diamonds at Norman Kirk Park.

The development of this, andthe wider

park, are crucial to theregenerationof

Kaiapoi. It is exciting to see the new park

almost complete and it is hoped the

community can enjoy allthe new facilities,

fromthe BMX track to the dog park,tothe

new diamonds.

Kaiapoi Softball Club is an important

partofthe local sporting community. With

180 members, thislevel of support is

impressive.

As part of the openingIhad theprivilege

to throw the first ball. Thankfully, it went

in the right directionand apparently I

threw astrike on the inside curve! (I am

still trying to decipher what this means).

We are fortunatetohave strong sports

teams and arange of sportingevents in

which to participate or enjoyasa

spectator. Thankstoall involved for their

commitment to sport in Waimakariri and

North Canterbury.

As always, Iwelcome contact from

Wayward wheeler to speak

By SHELLEY TOPP

Epic paraplegic traveller Eamon

Wood, also known as The Wayward

Wheeler, is aguest speaker at the

Kaiapoi Library next month.

The Christchurch author of A

Backpack, aChair and aBeard will

speak about his wheelchair travels

backpacking around the South Island

of New Zealand, Britain, the United

States and the fjords and lakes of

Europe.

At 28, Eamon had afull life working

as an engineer and in sport as an elite

athlete who had represented New

Zealand at wheelchair tennis and

basketball.

But he wanted to push himself

further to achieve more from life.

He travelled solo during his New

Zealand and overseas adventures,

often slept rough and at times his

journey was mentally and physically

exhausting, but for him that was the

best part.

Eamon has been aparaplegic since

he was aged 4and has found exercise

to be agreat antidote for depression.

He loves to push himself mentally

and physically. He has learnt that,

with this positive mindset, his

wheelchair is no hindrance to

whatever he wants to do.

Eamon will be at the library next

Thursday, March 4, from 5pm to

6.30pm to give his talk and promote his

book.

Fun in the sun ... Pool parties proved popular across the Hurunui district.

Council community team leader Rhea

Duffy said pool parties were all about

hours of fun, music, games, and a

sausage sizzle —all in the name of

keeping the boredom at bay towards the

end of the school holidays.

“And it gives council staff the

opportunity to connect with different

members of our community in arelaxed

environment –and not at ameeting

around atable.”

In total, 11 pool parties were held,

with Waikari and Omihi hosting them for

the first time.

Pool parties are thirsty and hungry

work, with more than 950 sausages

consumed, more than 50 loaves of bread

eaten, five litres of tomato sauce needed,

and numerous fruit and vege sticks

enjoyed.

Amberley and Rotherham had the

highest attendance rates, followed

closely by Hawarden.

Community feedback was hugely

positive, with those in the district

grateful for some extra summer fun for

young people.

Shows part of the McLean DNA

By DAVID HILL

Waiaufarmers Don and Annie McLean

are looking forward to serving as copresidents

at the 105thAmuri A&P Show

at the Rotherham Showgrounds on

Saturday, March 6.

Don has beenassociated with A&P

showshis entirelife.

“It’salwaysbeen an importantpart of

family lifeand it’s agreat way for the

community to come together and catch up

with each other,’’ he says.

Asecond generationshowpresident,

Don followsinthe footsteps of his father,

Stuart, whowas Amuri show president in

the 1980s.

Stuart and Jan McLean,who are now in

their80s, havehad alongassociation with

the show.

Stuart is planning to compete in the dog

trials again this year, while Jan continues

with her love of entering displays in the

floral section.

Don and Annie’s threechildren, Ben,

Tom and Millie,are carrying on the family

enthusiasmfor the show and will all be on

hand to helpand participate, including a

little familyrivalry in thepet dog section.

Ben farms in PortLevy,onBanks

Peninsula, and Tom farms in Gisborne,

while Millieisavaluer in Christchurch.

The McLean family farm is 10kmfrom

Waiau. It runs3000 ewes, plus

replacements andyoungstock,which are

finished under irrigation.

The flock has aWaireriRomney base

and has alambingpercentageofabout

145%.

“It works well. The Waireri Romneyisa

very easy­careanimal, they’regood sheep

and the fertility is very good,” Don says.

‘‘They’re avery robust sheep and they

seem to keepthemselves in good condition

and reartheir lambs very well.’’

Angus­Hereford­cross cows are also run

on the property and mated with Angus

bulls, while Charolais bulls have recently

been introduced as terminal sires.

Annie also works in the area as areal

estate agentwith Harcourts Hanmer

Springs, having previously worked in

health administrationand as an

earthquake support navigator.

The Amuri show district takesinanarea

with diverse communities, Donsays.

‘‘Culverden and Rotherhamhave more

dairy farming and HanmerSprings has the

tourismand outdooradventure, whereas

Waiau is your more traditionalsheep

farmingarea.

‘‘Waiauwas hugelyimpactedbythe 2016

earthquake and that was also agreat

example of the community pulling

together and watching out for eachother.’’

This year’s show will feature awool

showcase organised by Cheviot farmer

LyndaDicksonand apetting zoo.

“There is often talk about therural/

urbandivide and at the Amuri show we

are very aware of that,soit’s an

opportunity to make it an enjoyable and

educational day for the people who aren’t

closely involved in the rural way of life,”

Don says.

‘‘We’ve been going for 105 years and the

showisgetting stronger and stronger.

‘‘It’s quite abig day now and the

showgrounds are packedwith people and

theyall have agreatday out.’’

The McLeans wish to thanksecretary

Kim Balcombe and treasurer Meg

Macfarlanefor the show work they

undertake.

Theyalso wish to acknowledge the

supportofthe sponsors, tradespeople,

judges, marshalls, stewards, section heads

and volunteers, including Duncan

Macfarlane, who keeps the showgrounds

in pristinecondition.

There is an amazingcommitteethat

draws on yearsofexperience coupledwith

fresh ideas and new enthusiasm,Don says.

Wool’sversatility to be showcased

By DAVID HILL

Wool willfeatureatthe Amuri A&P Show

next month.

Cheviotfarmer Lynda Dickson will be

taking her wool showcase to the

Rotherham Showgrounds on Saturday,

March6.

‘‘It’s very important, especially the way

the wool industry is at the moment,’’ show

president Don McLean says.

‘‘The more information that getsout into

the public arenathe better to promote the

benefits of woolversussynthetics, with

wool being the moresustainable.’’

Mrs Dickson has developedher wool

showcase in partnership with the North

CanterburyVeterinaryClinic.Ithas

featured at the Cheviot A&P Show in recent

years and at the Amberley A&P Show last

October.

‘‘One of the mainreasons for doing this is

to get peoplethinking about the adverse

effect synthetic products are havingonour

environmentand how wooland other

naturalfibres, that are biodegradableand

renewable,can replace synthetics and

plastics or oil­basedproducts.

‘‘It’s been areally cool project to do

becausewhen you approach peoplethey

are really enthusiastic,’’ Mrs Dickson says.

The display willfeature thediversityof

wool products suchasinthe home, clothing

and anumber of other practical uses.

‘‘There’s awide range of uses so we

encourage people to come along and have

alook at what you can do with wool,’’ she

says.

‘‘Wool is really starting to makea

comeback and it’s biodegradable, so it

breaks down quite quickly, unlikeother

products, making it agood alternative to

plastics, and we will have adisplayofthat.’’

‘‘We just need to keep getting the word

out there that it’s renewable and we keep

growing it every year,’’ Mrs Dicksonsays.

‘‘And it breaks downatthe end of itslife

product in the garden at the end of its life

Sisters deliver recipe for success

By DAVID HILL

The ‘‘Two Raw Sisters’’ are looking

forward to returning to the Amuri A&P

Show on Saturday, March 6.

Like so many Cantabrians,

Christchurch siblings Rosa and Margo

Flanagan had their plans thrown into

turmoil by Covid­19 after performing

their cooking demonstration at last

year’s Amuri A&P Show.

The pair were due to fly out to

Melbourne and to the United States in

March last year, but instead retreated to

their parents’ kitchen to produce online

workshops.

Over the next two months, the sisters

have afull schedule of A&P shows to

visit, should New Zealand remain at

alert level 1.

‘‘It was great. We love doing these sort

of shows,’’ says Margo, recalling last

year’s visit to the Rotherham

Showgrounds.

‘‘It was quite funny returning to mum

and dad’s last year, because it was

where we started.

‘‘We kept ourselves busy testing out

recipes and everyone was really good

and really responsive to the online stuff.

‘‘We enjoyed the online workshops,

but we are looking forward to seeing

people rather than looking at the screen,

which is abit boring sometimes.’’

Since performing at last year’s Amuri

A&P Show, the sisters have published

their second book, All Eaters Welcome,

and they are already working on their

third book.

‘‘The plant­based movement is

definitely becoming more of athing, but

we want to reach out to all eaters,’’

Margo says.

‘‘It’s about starting your meals with

vegetables and then you can add meat if

you want.

All eaters welcome ... The

Raw Sisters, from left, Rosa

and Margo Flanagan, will be

back at the Amuri A&P Show.

‘‘Our recipes explore fun and exiting

ways to use those pantry staples and to

show people how delicious plants can

be.’’

The sisters will be giving a

demonstration at 2pm at the show with

two recipes: Apear, ginger and peanut

butter bircher and abroccoli,

buckwheat and sesame salad.

‘‘They are perfect for taking to work or

for when you are entertaining,’’ Margo

says.

‘‘And we will be looking at substituting

ingredients. People often come to a

recipe and get stressed out about it

because they can’t find all the

ingredients, so it’s about being flexible

—one recipe can become 20 recipes.’’

Stunt-ridingadrawcard

By DAVID HILL

AChristchurch­based trick rider is sure

to thrill the crowd at lunchtime during

the Amuri A&P Show on March 6.

Sonia Duncan, who has appeared in

blockbuster movies as astunt double,

will ride in the main ring after

president Don McLean’s address at

about 12.30pm.

Sonia took up trick riding more than

25 years ago, when at the age of 29 she

was getting bored with simply riding

her horses. She saw anewspaper

advertisement which said: ‘‘Stunt

riders wanted —have you got what it

takes?’’

‘‘I decided to give it ago. Iwent along,

got trained up and became part of a

Wild West live show.’’

Sonia went on to work as astunt

double for Hollywood actor Liv Tyler in

Peter Jackson’s movie trilogy, The Lord

of the Rings.

Working days while on the set started

early, with wardrobe and make­up.

Then there would be the ‘‘hurry up and

wait’’ phase.

‘‘We would be told to hurry to the set.

Once there, we would wait. Sometimes

we would wait all day and not shoot a

scene,’’ Sonia says.

Being astunt double horse rider

requires patience, she says.

‘‘It was pretty basic stuff, cantering on

the horse, stopping on cue and jumping

off in along dress.’’

Stunt horses need to be taught to

canter in astraight line and not to stop

until asked.

Over time the horse gets used to the

rider hanging off either side while

cantering.

‘‘Just working with the horses all the

time and getting them to run in a

straight line is the key,’’ Sonia says.

Impressive skills ... Sonia Duncan’s riding skills will be on

display.

Club offers awarm, welcoming atmosphere

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Nearly 30 years ago the Darnley

Clubbegan providing quality

daycare for elderly folk.

It initiallybegan in the Kaiapoi

Working Men’s Club one day a

week.

Today, it has grown to afiveday­a­weekoperation

at its own

premises in the Kaiapoi

Community Centre,formerly

known as the St Paul’s Centre.

There is afulltime coordinator,

part­time office

worker and activitiesorganiser, a

part­time personal carer, parttimecook,

and two mini bus

drivers, alongside 27 volunteers.

The Kaiapoi Daycentre for

Seniors Inc, known as the

DarnleyClub, grew out of

concern for older people,

particularlythoseliving alone,

who longed for company,

fellowshipand good food.

Anumberofolder people from

Kaiapoi were going to aRangiora

resthome for daycare. However,

the facility could cope onlywith a

set numberofpeople,and those

wantingthe servicewas growing.

DarnleyClub secretaryGill

Rayner saysaworkinggroup set

about setting up asimilar

ventureinKaiapoi, finding a

venue, and developing a

programme.

It opened on May 16, 1991.

The club celebratesits 30th

birthday in May this year.

The club has 57 ‘‘friends’’

(clients),most of whom are

funded by the Canterbury

DistrictHealthBoard, with

which the centrehas acontract.

Up to 18 ‘‘friends’’ are catered

for each day with the aim of

providing somewhere for those

living alonetogofor company, a

place for those who have been ill

to get supportand fellowship,

and for familyand carers to have

somewhere to leavetheir loved

ones while theytake some time

out.

‘‘Our elderly folk are pickedup

in ourown mini­bus each

morningfrom Clarkville, the

beach communities, Kaiapoi,

Tuahiwiand Belfast, and are

taken home at 3pm.

‘‘Theyenjoyahome­baked

morningtea and anutritious

home­cookedmidday meal, as

well as afternoon tea.’’

Gill has beensecretary for 25

years. ‘‘I am part of the furniture.

Ilove it (theclub), and Ienjoyit,’’

she says.

Co­ordinatorDawn Armitage

says the elderly folk enjoy a

relaxing day of companionship

and laughter, in awarm and

caringenvironment,takingpart

in themany activities such as

crafts, games, quizzes,

physiotherapist exercises,

outingsand entertainment.

Dawn, who took overthe coordinator

role fromChris

Greengrass in 2014,says it is a

wonderful place to work.

‘‘It is areally warm,friendly

place where we have alot of fun,

and where thereisalot of

friendshipand warmth, good

food, fun activities, and outings.’’

Dawn says the clubisgreatfor

those livingalone who do not see

anybody fromone day to the next,

or for carers and family to geta

Companionship ... Members of the Darnley Club enjoy high tea.

littlebit of respite.

‘‘It means alot of thingstoa

whole lot of people,’’ she says.

Duringthe lockdown, when the

club had to closeoperations, staff

and volunteers kept in touch with

members withregular phone

calls,and made sure they had

meals and no worries.

‘‘It was just someonethere for

them, that cared and could offer

ahand of friendship.’’

The club enjoys strong

community support, and backing

from everyone from politicians to

Exercise classes benefit elderly

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Live Strongerfor Longer, aproject aimed

at gettingolder people into exercise, is

helping to prevent falls and related

injuries.

SportCanterbury is the lead agency for

the Canterbury District Health Board to

deliver the initiative, providing strength

and balance classes across the region,

including largenumbers in North

Canterbury.

It is part of anationwideinitiativethat

brings agencies togethertodeliver the

programme to enhance strength and

balance in thoseover 65, so they can stay

living independently and injury­free.

People under this age who may benefit

from joining aclassare also eligible to

attend.

LauraOrgan,acommunity strengthand

balance adviser for Sport Canterbury, says

the classeshelppeoplestay on their feet

through improvedfitness, strengthand

balance.

The Darnley Club

Kaiapoi Day Centre for Seniors

In May we celebrate 30 years of

providing aservice to our elderly in the

Waimakariri District.

We are in need of those special people

Classesare designed to work on balance,

strength, mobilityand fitness.

They are suited to all fitness levels,and

those attendingcan go at their own pace,

with exercises modified for injuriesand

medicalconditions,including arthritis

and osteoporosis.

Those attending often head off to alocal

eatery for achat andadrinkafterwards.

Laura says classes in NorthCanterbury

are wellattended because it is agreat way

to exercise, have fun, and meet people.

The classes are pitched at the older

person,sothey are not lining up with

young, fit people.This makes themfeel

much more comfortable,she says.

Classesare run fromKaikoura to

Ashburton and ‘‘everywhere in between’’.

Her role is to create and grow the access

to classes because ‘‘improving strength

andbalanceisone of the mosteffective

ways our elders can worktowards

reducing their riskoffalling’’.

Natural wonders ... The Waimakariri District Council is working on its policy around significant natural areas.

Council examines its SNA policy

By DAVID HILL

Affectedlandownersare being

encouraged to give theirviews on policy

around significant natural areas(SNA).

The Waimakariri District Council, as

part of its ongoing District Plan Review, is

contacting the owners of properties

identified to have SNAs.

SNAs are areas of vegetation thathave

high biodiversity values and are important

for preventing the extinction of rare

species and ecosystems in the district.

Councils are required to identify and

protect such areas under the Resource

ManagementAct.

The processofidentifying SNAs on

private land has proventobecontentious

in some partsofNew Zealand, largely

becauseofthe restrictionsonland use

that can be associatedwith the

classification.

The full details of the rules and

incentives around SNAs will be publicly

available when the Proposed District Plan

is notified later this year.

The public will be invited to make

submissions.

However, the council hopes to enter into

discussionswith landowners much

earlier, development planning manager

Trevor Ellis says.

‘‘We appreciatethat many SNAsexist

and continue to survive, thanks to the

effortsofgenerations of locallandowners

who have valuedand looked after them,’’

Mr Ellissays.

‘‘We want to work collaboratively with

landowners to workthrough their

concerns and make sure the important

ecological values of these areas are

maintained.’’

Landownerswill be contacted in stages,

starting withthose who already havean

SNA listed in the existingDistrict Plan or

anew SNA identified throughafieldvisit.

Landownerswith other new SNAswill

be contacted later in the year in order to

PHOTO: FILE

providemore time to work throughthe

information, Mr Ellis says.

‘‘It’s importanttousthat we get out there

and talk to landowners face­to­face.

‘‘This willgive us the best chance to

workthrough any concerns before the

proposed DistrictPlan is released.’’

The proposed DistrictPlan willcontain

rules abouthow an areaofland that

contains an SNA can be developed and

used.

Thiswill include limits on indigenous

vegetationclearance, while stillallowing

for some maintenance activitiessuch as

fence and trackupkeep.

Mr Ellis says the council is alsolooking

at ways it can provide incentivesto

landowners who provide protection for

their SNA.

Landowners may also be eligible for the

council’sBiodiversity Fund,whichcan

providefunding to assist with the

protection and restoration of identified

SNAs.

Sefton chases down an imposing

tally for an impressive home win

An ultra­aggressive Seftonchased down an

imposing Oxford­Rangiora total in the latest

roundofcountry cricket on Saturday.

More than500 runswere scored at Sefton

Domain as the home sidegot the points,

whiletherewere also winsfor competition

rivals Leeston­Southbridge,Weedonsand

Cheviotinthe CRV AmbreedCountry

Premier One Day 2020/21 competition.

Oxford­Rangiora batted first and made

267/6in45overs, thankslargely to aswashbuckling

innings fromLukeWaghorn.

Waghorn clubbed Seftonfor 90 runsoff 47

balls, including five sixes and seven fours. He

was well supported by opener Calvin Scott

(54 runsoff 87 balls),LachieStove(46 off 55)

and Dave Fulton’sunbeaten 44 off 59.

Chasing the highscore, Sefton got off to a

perfect startwith McKenzie Smith (54 off 44)

and Chris Warner(70 off 78)compilinga

century opening stand.

Canterbury seam bowler FraserSheat,

batting at No. 4, then smashed 72 off 48 balls,

combining withMatt Laffey, who made an

unbeaten 64, in an unbroken 118­run

partnership to claim adominant eight­wicket

win with four overs to spare.

Southbrook falters

At Weedons Domain, Southbrook paceman

Jono Green baggedfive wicketsashis side

bowled out the homeside for just 171.

Former Canterbury wicketkeeper Paul

Ruggshowed he has still got the touch, topscoring

with an unbeaten 35.

Southbrook got off to asolid start in its

chase, and was sitting prettywith former

Black Cap Shanan Stewart and Jack Boyle,

returningfrom Canterbury duties and along

Super Smashcampaign, bothatthe crease.

But when they fellrelatively cheaply, in

quick succession, Southbrook’s hunt for just

its second win of the season faltered, and

eventually fell 15 runs short.

Hamish D’Arcy did the mostdamage with

the white ball, returning the fine figuresof

5/37.

Thumping

Cheviot thumped Lincolnonhome soil on

Saturday, thankstoabrilliant century from

Ted Whelan.

Whelan’stop­score of 136 off 124 ballslifted

the Magpies to 288 against Lincoln, despite a

six­wicket bag for Hugh Paterson.

Paterson also shone with the bat,falling

justshortofahalf­century, as did his brother

Arthur, but their teammates didn’t offer

muchsupportand felltoa105­run loss inside

35 overs.

Dominant display

At Darfield Domain, the home sidecouldn’t

takeadvantage of batting first, despite afine

45 fromopener Liam Foulkes.

Foulkesmade alonestand, with the only

other meaningfulcontribution being 24 from

CullenMoody.

As theyhave done all season,all of

Leeston­Southbridge’s bowlersperformed

well, withDougald Munro’s tidy mediumpacers

the pickofthe bunch, finishing with

2/16off his nine overs.

BraydenHill(32 off 62) and Harry

Chamberlain(34 off 35), returning from a

successfulstint with Canterbury A, set up the

runchase,beforeTim Gruijtersand Sam

New Tsunami Evacuation Zones

for Waimakariri

Council has updated tsunami evacuation zones in

response to modelling that showed flooding from

atsunami could travel further inland than

previously thought.

The District now has three tsunami evacuation

zones: red, orange and yellow, and the Council is

encouraging residents to visit the website and

learn more about the zones. The new tsunami

evacuation zones will be reflected inLand

Information Memorandums (LIMs).

While the red evacuation zone has only seen minor

changes, it’s the most likely to be affected by a

tsunami. It covers estuaries, beaches and rivers

which can experience strong currents and surges in

the water from tsunamis of any size.

The orange evacuation zone covers land that could

be flooded during large tsunamis and already

included the coastal settlements at The Pines

Beach, Kairaki, Woodend Beach and Waikuku

Beach. It has been revised to extend the length

of the coast and further inland.

The most notable change is the introduction of the

yellow evacuation zone, which covers large parts

of Kaiapoi and asection of Pegasus. This area is

least likely to be affected, but could be flooded or

isolated in avery large tsunami.

"The modelling is based on worst-case scenarios which

shows the yellowzone could potentially be flooded

in avery large tsunami from adistant source,” says

Emergency Management Advisor Brennan Wiremu.

“These events are rare and we’d have atleast

12 hours warning, so residents don’t need to be

alarmed, however they should have aplan for what

to do if they need to evacuate.”

The Council is working with the affected

communities and emergency services to develop

new tsunami response strategies.

Brennan says residents in the affected areas can

expect to receive information in their mailbox

about the tsunami zones shortly, which will be

followed bydrop-in sessions and opportunities for

people to ask questions.

Find out more and view amap of the new

evacuation zones at waimakariri.govt.nz/tsunami

Algal Bloom in Lake Pegasus

Canterbury District Health Board’s Community and

Public Health unit has reissued ahealth warning

aer potentially toxic blue-green algae (planktonic

cyanobacteria) was again found in Lake Pegasus

last week.

People and animals, particularly dogs, should avoid

Lake Pegasus until the health warning has been lied.

Make sure it’s safe toswim in rivers and lakes by

algae before you head out. To check, jump onto the

water testing results for key recreational areas in

our District.

“The Key of Knowledge ..“(Luke 11:52)

THE HOPE OF ISRAEL -HOPE

OF TRUE BIBLEBELIEVERS

What is our hope? Does it matter what we believe

concerning it? The Bible, being God’s word expressing

hope to mankind, reveals the REAL hope and not

something that has evolved through man’s desires.

Truth in the world can be as fake as anyone likes, but

God and his promises are unchanging and have been

instituted in Genesis. Learning of God, truth is critical to

our understanding.

If you are wondering about the meaning of life, this

presentation brings hope clearing the way through

cloudy religious teaching.
