Paid roles will strengthen ambulance service

From Page 1

Asecond paramedic will be employed in

Culverden, andanotherparamedic and

Mr Gillman said he hadlooked at the

workload of all centres and found doublecrewing

of ambulances at peaktimes,

particularlyatweekends when people

wereplaying sport and doing adventurous

activities, wasdifficult.

He saysthe paramedics at Culverden

and Kaikoura work9am to 5pm on

weekdays, whileAmberley crews areall

volunteers.

Volunteers had providedgreat service,

but having extra, paid staff in Amberley

would easethe workload on them.

Mr Gillman says thereisastrong

Schools in expansion mode

By DAVID HILL

Roll growth is creating some

challenges for North

Canterbury schools.

Amuri Area School and

Leithfield School are

awaiting new teaching

spaces, while work is

progressing at Swannanoa

and Kaiapoi Borough

schools.

Culverden’s Amuri Area

School is bulging at the

seams, beginning the new

school year with 365 pupils,

principal James Griggs says.

The school is awaiting the

Ministry of Education’s plans

for the redevelopment of its

senior campus, including six

new teaching spaces.

‘‘We started the year with

365 students, which we would

normally finish the year with.

The school is built for around

300 students, so we’ve been

needing the new roll growth

teaching spaces for five

years,’’ Mr Griggs says.

The six teaching spaces

would futureproof the school,

as well as replace some old

classrooms, while the

remaining senior campus

buildings are expected to be

refurbished.

Meantime, it has been

converting teacher offices

into small classrooms to

make do.

‘‘If you’ve got one science

lab and you need two, it’s

hard to deliver the programmes

you want to. It will

be fantastic when it’s done

and will set us up well for the

future.’’

Leithfield School is busy

with the concept planning

stage as it awaits anew fourteaching­space

block,

principal Sharon Marsh says.

Two old classrooms are

also set to be demolished.

‘‘Because we are sited on a

terrace, there is some

geotechnical work that has

had to be done around site

suitability.’’

Kaiapoi Borough School’s

new technology block is on

track to open in May, which

will be welcome news for the

10 contributing schools which

use it.

Swannanoa School’s roll

growth has created some

extra challenges as it

prepares to celebrate its

150th anniversary during

Labour Weekend, principal

Brian Price says.

‘‘When we celebrated our

125th there were 40 students

and now we’ve got 340 —and

we’ve even reduced our zone

to support schools around us.

It just shows the growth in

our area.’’

spaces. But it pushed the

school’s power capacity to its

limit, so over the summer

trenches were dug for new

cabling.

The school has used its

government school

investment package funding

to create adrop­off and

loading zone on the school

grounds as it prepares to

accommodate afourth school

bus.

‘‘We’re changing the whole

entrance which gets the

buses off Tram Rd, which gets

busy, and the playground is

being moved over to the new

buildings,’’ Mr Price says.

Quarry backers bound

by confidentiality deal

By SHELLEY TOPP

Aconfidentiality agreement,signed in

2015,prevents proponentsofthe Rangiora

Racecoursequarry fromspeaking

publicly aboutit.

Canterbury Jockey Club chairman

Gordon Fulton, who farmsatWest

Eyreton, said last week thathecouldnot

comment on the proposal because of the

confidentiality agreement between the

parties involved —the jockeyclub and the

Rangiora Harness Racing Club, ownersof

the racecourse,and TaggartEarthmoving

Ltd.

The agreement was signed by

representatives of both clubs and Taggart

Earthmoving before the quarry proposal

was firstput to the Waimakariri District

Council for resource consentapproval.

The proposal became public knowledge

when the North CanterburyNews ran a

storylast July. Since then, public

opposition to the proposal has mounted.

No Rangiora Quarrygroup member

John Mathersaidhewas not surprised a

confidentiality dealhad been signed.

‘‘I suspecteditand Ithink it is

absolutely abhorrent thatpeoplehave had

no chance to do due diligencewhen

purchasing or building homes in thatnew

Hearing planned ... The map

accompanying the quarry application.

Arlingtonsubdivision when,for all that

time,aquarry nearbywas being planned

in secret.’’

The quarryproposal has attracted 404

submissions, with 390 opposing it, and a

public consent hearing is plannedfor

laterthis year, with adate and venue yet

to be decided.

Mr Mather said the No Rangiora Quarry

grouphad askedEnvironment Canterbury

(ECan) to make the submissions public

before thehearing.

An ECan spokesman said aLocal

GovernmentOfficialInformation and

Meetings Act request would have to be

lodged for that to happen, because

personal information wouldhave to be

redacted from submissions before being

made public. That would take about20

working days from when the request was

lodged. However, asummary of the

submissions would be available 15 days

before thehearings.

6 The North Canterbury News, March 18, 2021

Taking the year

one step at atime

The Kaiapoifun run last weekendwas a

great first step in my goal of running my

first marathonthis year.

Congratulations to All Together

Kaiapoi for awell­organisedeventthat

showcased Kaiapoi’s beautiful river on a

sunny Kaiapoi morning.

Iamsharing my progress on my

Facebook page, and Iwelcome any tips

from runners in our community.

The Three Waters Reform Bill will

have ahuge impact on how we manage

our drinking water, stormwater and

wastewater in Waimakariri.

The bill is currently going through

parliament’s Health Select Committee, of

which Iamamember.

The bill proposes changes to how

drinking water, wastewater and

stormwater will be delivered and

regulated,and proposes moving

responsibilityfor these away from our

local councils.

Iwas able to talk directlytothe Local

Government Minister to make sure our

Waimakariri view is heard,especially

aroundour concerns that our voice could

be lost as cities such as Christchurch take

the lion’s share of funding and get greater

priority.

Let'stalk about the future

The draft Long Term Plan (LTP)isout for

your feedback.

This is yourcouncil’s key strategic

document which details our priorities for

the next 10 years and looksathow these

are proposed to be funded.

Each LTP is acareful balancing act

between whatthe district needs, what our

residents want, and whatwecan afford.

Over the next 10 years the councilis

focused on making sure we keep up with

growth, Covid­19 recovery, climatechange/

sustainability, and the impactofthe Three

Waters Reviewbeing imposed on us by the

government.Inthis LTP we’re specifically

asking for feedback on:

New community facilitiesfor Pegasus

and north Woodend (Ravenswood);

Upgrades to the Rangiora Libraryand

widercivic area;

ParkinginRangiora, includingacarpark

building.

If there’s somethingyou think the

council should or shouldn’t be providing,

deferring, or bringing forward, now is the

time to tell us.

If the draft LTP is supported, the proposedrates

increase is 3.95 percent in the

firstyear and 4.2% for the following years.

You can give us feedback in person, by

posting in asubmission formorfillingin

the online questionnaire. All detailsare

online at waimakariri.govt.nz/letstalk or

you can visit alibrary or service centre for

help.Submissions close on April 12.

Environment Canterbury is proposing a

provided. Everyone who takes

part will need to paint at least

one stone with amarket theme

for the market to keep to run

treasure hunts at future

markets. Any otherstonescan be

painted to takehome.

Marketmanager Nicky

Brooker says the stalls offer

great value for staples suchas

veges,eggs,and meat. People

knew where their producewas

comingfrom, and it was

seasonally fresh and nutritious.

‘‘The Canterbury earthquakes

were aperfect example of how

resilient alocalfood system can

be in times of crisis,’’ Nicky says.

24.5% or 18% rate increase in its upcoming

LTP. Councillors and Iare concerned how

ECan proposes to fundits programme of

work, which is the main reasonthe

increase is so significant.

Like mostbusinesses and organisations,

the Waimakariri District Council debtfunds

its projects. It’slike anormalloan;

you borrow up­front and repayover time.

This ensures intergenerational equity —

after all, the nextgenerationbenefits.

ECan’sproposal is to entirelyratepayer

fund its programme of work up­front. The

24.5% increase would completelyfund its

entirework programme. The alternative is

simple: To borrow for thework and smooth

any increases intoacceptableamounts for

ratepayers.

The council does not supporthow ECan

is proposing to fund its LTP andwewill be

strongly expressingour concerns.

At the moment borrowing is the right

move. Interest rates are remarkably low,

and work can be undertaken without

significantly burdening households

already struggling during Covid­19.

ECan’sdraft LongTerm Plan is

available online for submissions. Make

sure you visit haveyoursay.ecan.govt.nz

Working machinery a

big drawcard for event

By MICHAELA MCLEOD

It gives me greatpleasureto

welcome you all to the 2021

South Island Agricultural Field

Days (SIAFD)from March 24 to

26.

This will be our fourth event

at our permanent homein

Kirwee.

The last year has seenusin

unprecedented times withthe

globalpandemic. Thankfully,

agriculture has been recognised

as the shining light that we all

know it to be.

Planning an event with the

threatoflooming lockdowns has

been challenging, but the

organising committee has

remained determined that the

event will go ahead in some

capacity, as ameans of

celebrating the industry that

has remainedreliable and

unwavering throughout the

difficult times the country has

faced.

We also take this time to

celebrate the 70th year of the

South Island Agricultural Field

Days.

It had modestbeginningsand

now boasts the largest working

machinery display of any field

days in the country.

This is something that really

sets us apartfrom other field

days and is awonderful

drawcard for intending

purchasers to be abletosee a

large range of equipment in

NZ is going through apost-covid land development boom,

with more and more farmers and landowners realizing

the potential of their land. Understanding the Resource

Management Act as it applies to your land, navigating local

district plan restrictions and guides, and determining the

best options for unleashing the potential locked can mean

that many rural landowners put development off, orwait for a

farm sale for the next owner to realise the capital investment

potential.

Work with aspecialist land

development consultant

action, as well as many of our

exhibitors choosingSIAFD as

the launching pad for theirnew

equipment or products and

services.

Iwouldlike to take this

chance to thank our many

supporters,who have helpedus

realiseour vision for this year.

We thank the local community

too —the Selwyn District and

Kirwee in particular, have been

very welcoming and we hope

that they enjoy the wider

business that our event brings to

the region.

Lastly,Iwould liketothank

the 2021 SIAFD organising

committee and their families.

This group of volunteers

comprises some of the hardestworkingpeopleIhave

encountered in my time and the

event simply wouldnot happen

withouttheir valuable input and

support.

Matt Cassineri

True sustainability restsonthree main

pillars that include not just the

environment, but also economic health

and the social licencetocontinue

farming.

An unbalanced emphasis on any one

of these threewill inevitably mean the

other two are put under pressure.

With the current

heightened awareness of

environmental issues,itis

easy to lose perspective on

the balance in the big

picture, without which

nothing is truly sustainable.

When the fundamentalsof

animalhealth and

production efficiency are in

focus,environmental

measures can also improve

by default.

This means thatalthough

environmental footprints do not just

take careofthemselves,they are given

ahelping handasfarmingoutcomes

improve —something farmers strive to

achieve every day.

Takingalife­cycle analysis approach

to carbon foot­printing provides the

mechanism that quantifies this

balance, wrapping some numbers

aroundthe whole systemthat allows

farming to tell its story in away that

finds approval with many groups.

The Alltech E­CO 2

environmental

programmeemploysananimalcentredapproach

underpinned by

animal health and welfare, and it is

sensitive to the profitability of the

farmingenterprise.

Following these principles,itis

generations the “sociallicenceto

SOUTH ISLAND AGRICULTURAL FIELD DAYS

22 The North Canterbury News, March 18, 2021

Chance for rural women to shine

The entertaining farm­focused Country

Women Competition heads to the South

Island Agricultural Field Days next

week, after an engaging response to the

inaugural event at last year’s Amuri

A&P Show.

The Kirwee­based event, held from

March 24 to 26, features one of the

biggest and most interactive

demonstration areas in the country.

This means bringing together some of

the region’s most talented rural women

to display their capabilities. It is abig

coup for field days chairwoman

Michaela McLeod.

‘‘The South Island Agricultural Field

Days has long been known for the place

to see harvesters, seeders, balers and

some of the newest agricultural

technology in action,’’ she says.

‘‘But to be able to highlight the skills

and capabilities of the women, who are

often the backbone of the agricultural

industry, is aspecial addition to the

field days this year.’’

The competition was initially

designed by Bex Green, the volunteer

regional leader for the Dairy Women’s

Network in North Canterbury. It

revolves around aseries of challenges

that give rural women achance to

prove their mettle and demonstrate

their talent in the farming sector.

‘‘I wanted to see women step up and

step out, and be brave in the farming

world,’’ she said.

‘‘And the response we had to the

(competition) was incredible, with 20

women toughing it out last year.’’

After seeing some incredible skills,

tactical thinking and entertaining

endeavours, Fran Gunn, of North

Canterbury, was the inaugural Dairy

Women’s Network Country Woman of

the Year.

This year, volunteer regional leader

Test of skills... Cartinghay baleswill be just one of the challenges in the Dairy Women’s

Network Country Woman of the Year competitionatthe South Island Agricultural Field

Days nextweek.

PHOTO: FILE

Jordain Adams is at the helm for the

Dairy Women’s Network Canterbury

team and is looking forward to seeing

the calibre of competition this year at

the field days.

She said participants could expect

similar challenges to last year, such as

throwing darts, milking afake cow,

throwing agumboot, chopping wood,

backing atrailer on aquad bike and

carrying hay bales.

‘‘We’re so excited to be running this

competition again,’’ Ms Adams said.

‘‘Get ready for three days of tough

competition, bigger prizes, and

opportunities for rural women to get

out there, have fun and show the rest of

New Zealand how to get it done.’’

Providing opportunities for women

to demonstrate their value in the rural

sector is the purpose of the Dairy

Women’s Network.

Through workshops, regional events,

competitions and conferences, it brings

women together from around the

country for shared learning and

connection, and supports them to

achieve personal and professional

goals.

Registrations to enter the Country

Women Competition can be made

during the field days at Gate D.

The action takes place daily at 10am

Pandemic disrupts

machinery imports

By DAVID HILL

Covid­19 is causing delays with

agriculturalmachinery imports.

Tractorand Machinery Association

(TAMA) president Kyle Baxter warned

memberstoexpect delays in global

manufacturing, as wellasshipping delays

this year.

TAMA memberswere reporting demand

for tractors and equipment steadily

building across the country,ascustomers

began to secure their machinery for

spring/summer 2021.

‘‘However, the pandemic is continuing

to disrupt theoverseas supplychain

across Europe, America and Asia,’’ he

said.

‘‘WhileNew ZealandTAMA members

aredoingeverythingthey cantoensure

machines arriveontime for the season

ahead, there willbepotentialdelaysin

globalmanufacturing and international

shipping routes that could be felt during

thefirsthalf of the year.’’

Mr Baxtersaid memberswho

manufactured within New Zealand were

reportingstrongorders for their

equipment from customers for this year.

‘‘This is very good news and anothersign

that our primary industry is still feeling

buoyant among the global turmoil,’’ Mr

Baxtersaid.

Covid­19has also had an impactonthis

month’s SouthIslandAgricultural Field

Days, as many of the large agricultural

machinerycompanies have been unable

to get new gear into the country in time to

demonstrate themachines.

‘‘Thereseems to have been abit of a

hold on the boats, so therewill be alot of

machines on display whichfarmers have

alreadybeen usingonfarms,’’field days

committee memberAndrewStewart said.

Meanwhile,the harvest season is in full

swingand Federated Farmers is urging

motorists and theoperators of agricultural

machinery to show each othersome care

and understanding.

‘‘Noteveryone has appreciated the

recent sweltering temperatures, but for

arable farmers in the middle of harvesting,

the golden weather is both abonus and a

race to get cropsinbefore Mother Nature

switches moods,’’federation vicepresident

and transport spokeswoman

KarenWilliams said.

New Zealand’s $2.1billion arable

industry is asignificant exportearner and

employer. During harvest, combine harvesters,largetractorstowing

implements

and other over­size agricultural vehicles

oftenneed to use public roadstomove

between different parts of the farm.

‘‘They’rebulky and of necessity —and

by law —move at lower speedsthan other

motorists,’’ Ms Williams said.

‘‘Farmers areaskingotherdrivers to

show abit of patience and commonsense.

‘‘If atractor or harvesterdoes pull over

to the edge of the road, take your

opportunity to pass if you can do so safely.

‘‘Most of them will be moving no faster

than 30kmh to 40kmh or so, so it’snot

essential to have the same several

hundred metres of clearroad ahead

needed when overtaking muchfastermoving

vehicles.’’

Refusing to passcouldresult in along

line­up of vehicles and that was when

some drivers’ patience frayedand they

mightdosomethingrisky, she said.

Federated Farmers also urges farm

vehicle operatorstoremember traffic

flows, as wellastheir responsibilities in

termsofprotruding implements/ headers

and, where required, to use beacons and

hazard panels.

Two big upsets mark

latest cricket round

Adramaticlast round of CRV NZ

Canterbury Country Premier one­day

matches delivered two unforeseen upsets.

Winless and eighth­placedLincolnbeat

Darfield.

Lincoln battedfirst at Darfield Domain

against ahome side looking for awin to

lock itself into third place.

Country Rep all­rounder Joe Williams

set aniceplatform for the Lincolnside

with arun­a­ball 50.

Arthur Paterson, batting at No. 3, scored

awell compiled 74 to lift Lincolntoa

competitive 251 off its allotted 45 overs.

In reply, Darfield was in trouble early

thanks to somegreat new­ball bowling

from Hugh Paterson and TaylorHolland.

Alister Collins was the onlyDarfield

batsman to get under way but,when

dismissed for 60, Darfield’s hopes faded

with him. Darfield was eventually bundled

out for 210, handingLincolnits first oneday

competition win of the season.

Southbrook triumphs

At Southbrook Park,the ninth­placed

home sidewas hopefulofanupset against

second­placed Sefton.

Southbrookwon the tossand batted first,

whichmeant Canterbury batsman Jack

Boylewas given theopportunity to score

some moreclubruns for his side.

Boylescored an impressive 116 off 132

ballstolift Southbrooktoatotal of 231.

Boylewas supported well by youngster Gus

Mowat, who scored52off 45 ballstowards

the end of Southbrook’s innings.

In reply, Sefton never got underway

thanks to an outstanding new­ball spell by

fringe Canterbury Countryrep LuanBlom.

Blom removedthe in­form duo of

MackenzieSmith and Chris Warner early

in Sefton’sinnings.

Afighting knock fromLanceTaylor

brought Seftonback into the match.

Former Blackcap ShananStewart came on

and cleaned up the Seftonmiddle and

lowerorder, claiming threescalpstohelp

reduce Sefton to 177 all out.

Ohokavictorious

At Mandeville, Weedons needed to

trounce the homeside for achance of

making the semi­finals on net run rate.

Ohokabatted first and postedabig total

265/2off its allottedovers thanks largely to

acaptain’s knock from Daniel Lyons.

Lyonscompiled118 off 136 ballsand he

was well supported by Canterbury Country

rep keeper­batsman Will Hamilton with 98

off 101 balls.

In reply, Weedons started brightly,with

its opening batsman and talisman Todd

Inness scoring 76 off 87 balls.

But the Weedonsmiddle order couldn’t

create anysubstantial partnerships

through the middleoverswhich eventually

meantthe side was bowled out for 211 in

the 42ndover,ending its semi­final hopes.

At CheviotDomain, the home side beat

Oxford­Rangiora in adead rubber, while

Leeston­Southbridge had the bye.

The final points tally meansaNorth

What’s happening in your

community…

Flaxton and Fernside Roads

The roundabout at the intersection of Flaxton and

Fernside Roads is now taking shape and traffic is

flowing in both directions again on Flaxton Road

with the removal of the one-way system and detour.

Things are really moving at the northern end

of Flaxton Road with new kerb and channel

constructed all the way from BP to Southbrook

Resource Recovery Park. MainPower have also

finished major work in the area which means

asphalt will be laid this week and we will open up

most of the new footpath to the public.

The traffic management will continue to change to

suit the construction, including cones being removed

and on-street parking being made available again

once works have been completed in areas.

Both areasofwork on theroundaboutand on

Flaxton Roaditselfshould becompletedbymid-May.

Rangiora Central Sewer

The Rangiora Central Sewer upgrade is

progressing well with Stage 5acompleted earlier

than planned thanks to additional resourcing

through Government’s Stimulus funding. The

upgrade isamulti-year project that replaces old

and deteriorated pipes with those of alarger

capacity toallow for future growth in Rangiora.

This doesn’t just apply to new subdivisions, but

also to newer developments within the town, and

to cater for higher sewer flows that the existing

pipes are unable to cope with. Some of the

original pipes were installed in the 1930s before

dishwashers existed, and before washing machines

were widespread, for instance.

It also protects the quality of water in nearby

streams byreducing the likelihood of overflows

during storm events or flooding. While the chance

of an overflow isalready relatively low, this work

will reduce it even further.

Thenextstagewill getunderwaylater thisyear and

theentire projectexpectedtobecompleted by 2028.

Other Roadworks

Oxford Road, betweentheintersectionsof

Skills, drills and plenty of thrills

Introducing more youngsters to

the game of rugby is akey goal

for Ohoka Rugby Club ahead of

its 2021 rugby season.

The club ran several

workshops at primary schools

in its local catchment area this

week. They were designed to

increase awareness of the club,

as well as introduce new

players to the game.

Junior club captain Stephen

de Villiers said the workshops,

held at Fernside, Ohoka,

Swannanoa and West Eyreton

schools, were ahuge success.

‘‘We had great feedback, not

just from the kids who were

involved, but from the teachers

and principals as well.

‘‘The workshops were not

only about increasing the

awareness of our club and

growing our player numbers,

but also an opportunity to

strengthen ties with our feeder

schools and our wider

community.’’

Swannanoa School principal

Brian Price said the workshops

were agreat initiative.

‘‘This is what community is

all about. The kids were

absolutely buzzing. It’s agreat

opportunity for schools as well

as the club, and what agreat

group of role models for the

kids.’’

The pupils enjoyed arange of

fun rugby drills, as well as

fitness and ball skills.

Introducing some youngsters to

rugby for the first time was a

highlight for Mr de Villiers.

‘‘We saw kids that had never

played before, getting involved

and really enjoying themselves.

‘‘We had one little girl who

had so much fun she was

adamant that she was signing

up for the season,’’ he said.

Ohoka Rugby Club will hold

its registration evening today

(Thursday, March 18) from 5pm.

It will offer achance to meet

the coaches and to find out how
