By DAVID HILL

OxfordArea Schoolprincipal Mike Hart has

provided ashortbut vivid description of how

the master planfor his school’s$10 million

redevelopment is taking shape: Awesome.

The revamp will be the biggest development

on OxfordArea School’s Bay Road site in

nearly150 years.

Athfield Architects and project manager

RDT Pacific presentedamasterplan to the

board of trustees on Monday evening.

‘‘It looks awesome, but it needstogotothe

Ministry (of Education) before we can share it

with the community,’’ he says.

OxfordArea Schoolwas established in 1978,

with OxfordDistrict High School merging

with neighbouringprimaryschools.

Next yearmarks 150 years since the district

high schoolwas first established, in 1872.

‘‘There are buildingsonthe site thathad a

life before being partofOxfordArea School,

so the opportunitytodesignand develop

modern classrooms to teach students in the

21st century is veryexciting,’’MrHart says.

The master plan willset avisionfor the next

50 years,allowing for the growth of the school

on the four­hectare site, before the more

detailed designphase begins.

Mr Hart says the redevelopment is likelyto

see several classroom blocks replaced, along

with the school’sadministration blockand

library. Redevelopment of the school’s

science block is long overdue,hesays.

with the Hurunui District Council for

the gravity­basedride, which will be

able to cater for up to 60 passengersan

The proposal has been given several

tweaks afterapublicmeeting in August

concerns about noise and carparking

on social media in recentdays.

The consent application revealsthat

the ride would be shifted fromthe

south side of ConicalHill to the west

because of noiseand privacy concerns.

There is no provision for car parking,

withthe applicant, Hanmer Springs

However, it intends to market the

ride as awalk from the villagetothe

‘‘I’m looking forward to

putting 2020 firmly behind us,

and enjoying great North

Canterbury theatre again,’’

Grant says.

‘‘Rehearsals are proceeding

exceptionally well, and with the

extra time to rehearse, the cast

will be at the top of their game.’’

North Canterbury Musicals

was officially established in

1964, with earlier iterations

reportedly established in the

1920s.

The group regularly puts on

one or two shows ayear,

operates costume and technical

equipment hire, and runs

singing groups.

Joseph and the Amazing

Technicolor Dreamcoat will play

at the Rangiora Town Hall from

May 13 to 29, with evening shows

and matinees. Ticket sales open

on April 1from Iticket online,

OPINION

6 North Canterbury News, March 25, 2021

Claire McKay

Environment Canterbury Councillor

Shows are local treasures

The cycle of autumn show days in the

Hurunui district is now complete.

Each event provides agreat

opportunity for the Hurunui

community to come together.

Iwas so impressed with the Amuri

Show Committee.

Despite being hampered by the

unique and unpredictable passage of

the coronavirus, they reacted positively

with acommunity barbecue and good

old­fashioned fun for the children.

It was agreat day thanks to the

initiative of this year’s presidents, Don

and Annie McLean.

In Cheviot, it was another community

event with successful sponsorship and

community support.

Presidents Don and Kate Anderson

were instrumental in showcasing talent

from across the district —music and

singing was not only entertaining, but

top class.

The final show, on Saturday at

Hawarden, hosted by Jim and Ramona

Sidey, was agreat occasion, with

everything that suggests participation

on show day is as strong as ever.

Iespecially enjoyed seeing so many

children entering the show, and Ihope

that it inspires them to alifetime of

support and community participation.

Nigel Latta spoke at apresentation in

Omihi hosted by the North Canterbury

Warning over

toxic algae

Ahealth warning has been issuedafter

evidence of potentiallytoxic bluegreen

algae (planktonic

cyanobacteria) was found in Lake

Pegasus.

Evidence of cyanobacteriawas also

found on several beachshorelines as

accumulations of scum.

People should avoid the area and

animals, particularlydogs, should not

be allowed near the water until the

warning has beenlifted. Animals that

show signs ofillness after coming into

contactwith algal mats or scum should

be taken to avet immediately.

Lake Pegasus is being monitored

He spoke of the fact that we are social

beings and we need to come together to

share experiences in times of peace

and times of stress. This aids our

wellbeing.

We now have agreater

understanding between the health of

our brain, and the link to socialised

behaviour.

Show days and other community

events not only support our personal

wellbeing, but also support the

wellbeing of our community.

We are lucky to live in an

environment that provides relative

safety and significant community

support. Let’s work together to keep it

that way.

The council is busy preparing for the

framework for the next 10 years and

option, while Option 2isapared­back

version that provides for all statutory

work, pre­committed Covid work and

public transport improvements.

Both options outline an increase in

activity and therefore funding. Rates

provide about 55 percent of the funding,

with the balance being user­pays or

grants.

Proposed Option 1requires an extra

$29 million from ratepayers, an increase

of 24.5% on last year. Option 2requires

about $21 million, an increase of 18%.

The increase for each ratepayer will

be different depending on the services

received, and in dollar terms varies from

less than $100 to several thousand

dollars. These are significant increases,

not only in the current pandemic

environment but in any situation.

The information you need to

understand the aims and rationale

behind this proposed increase can be

found at haveyoursay.ecan.govt.nz/ltp.

The 40­page consultation document

outlines proposed work and funding,

with the fuller 300­page supplementary

information adding another layer of

detail.

The rates calculator compares the

impact of each option on your property.

The second rates tool is abubble or line

tool, depending on the device from

which you are accessing it.

It drills down into each portfolio work

programme proposed in Option 1ineven

greater detail of activity, funding

amount and funding source.

The consultation document and

submission form identifies areas where

specific feedback is sought.

Additional feedback and any

alternative suggestions on affordability,

activities, funding and how quickly to

achieve desired outcomes is welcome.

Long­term plans should be carefully

balanced to meet the region’s future

needs, to consider the desires of the

wider community and, most of all, to be

affordable.

Does this LTP resonate with you?

It is important that people provide

feedback by way of asubmission to help

shape the LTP’s final form and funding.

We need to hear your views.

It is critical that Environment

Canterbury gets this right. Iamhappy to

help you understand the LTP. Contact

The need to stay safe in our own homes

By INSPECTOR PETER COOPER,

area commander, NZ Police, Canterbury Rural

Last Saturday night one of our police

team received moderately seriousstab

wounds while attending afamily harm

incident.

Incidents such as these are astark

reminderofthe high­risk environmentin

whichthe police areoftenaskedto

operate.

Thankfully,the officerwill make afull

recovery.

Iamoften asked by my boss, “whatis

your greatest worrykeeping youupat

night?”.

For me, it is these eventswhere one of

our team is hurt, or worse still, doesn’t

come home to their family.

Conflictinthe home is our major

demand, accounting for half of police

time.

The secondarea of demand involves

times of crisis faced by those suffering

from mental healthissues, which make

up 20 percent of our calls.

We continuetowork hardwith the

assistanceofother partners in the

community to ensurethat everyone feels

safe, and is safe, in their own home.

However, we cannot achieve this on our

own and we willalwaysneedthe helpof

the community.

We simply can’tbeeverywhere in the

districtormeet everyone’sexpectations

of us.

We use evidence and intelligence,not

social media or rumours, to deploy our

resources.

We look to thecommunity for the

complete picture of whatishappening in

our community.

105 is our non­emergency reporting

number and 111 remains for emergency

calls.

Staysafe at home, on the roads and in

the community.

Highest standards achieved

through trust and respect

In November 2016 the historic

24-stand Highfield Woolshed near

Waiau was all but destroyed in a7.8

magnitude quake.

Built in 1876 it was the heart of the

Northcote family’s farming business,

and also apartofthe wider Waiau

community having hosted many

weddings, shows and community

celebrations.

Walls becameseparatedfrom the

roof, and asection collapsed. The

structure also shifted off its piles and

was about 600mm out of level.

The skills of local construction

company,BGBeaven Builders, and

heritage architect Dave Pearson, saw

the woolshed restored to its former

glory.

The sympathetic restoration of

the woolshed and the high standard

of workmanship, within budget,

was rewarded at the New Zealand

with BG Beaven Builders Ltd, the

project team partner,was awarded

aSilver,and also won the Special

challenges posed by such aunique

restoration project.

They communicated with the

Northcote family,finished the job to

the highest standard of workmanship.

The award winning construction

Dogs play major role at

Hawarden A&P Show

By SHELLEY TOPP

Dogs finally had their long­awaited

theme day at the Hawarden A&P Show

last Saturday.

Canines played abig role in the

114th annual show.

Ayear after Covid­19 prevented the

last show from going ahead,

presidents Jim and Ramona Sidey

decided to revisit their 2020 theme,

‘‘Who Let The Dogs Out?’’

The show featured all sorts of dogs,

including North Canterbury Dog

Training Club canines, working dogs,

family pets, dogs herding ducks, and

those taking part in the popular

terrier race.

There was even aWho Let The Dogs

Out Again/Our Community photo

exhibition, featuring images from the

competition which had been judged

before last year’s show was cancelled.

During lockdown, competition

organiser and professional

photographer Lucy Hunter­Weston,

who is also on the show’s executive

committee, created an online

exhibition of the photos for the

Hawarden A&P Show website.

The photographs are still up on the

website, and she also included prints

of the images at this year’s show.

She hopes to eventually create a

book of the photos for the community.

Saturday’s show was also abig day

out for new secretary/treasurer

Angela Cooper.

‘‘It is my first year in the role and

there is alot to learn,’’ she said last

Saturday.

It was ahectic day for her, and she

didn’t get outside much to enjoy show

activities and displays. However, she

still enjoyed her day.

Farming in the

been successfully

juggling alot of

commitments in

Marie amaster at multi-tasking

By DAVID HILL

RunninganAngusstud,raising

anewborn child andpreparing

foranA&Pshowis allina

day’swork for Marie

FitzPatrick.

The 28­year­old is set to

becomeone ofthe youngest

show presidents when she

presides over the Oxford A&P

Show on Saturday, April 3.

“Things do take abitlonger

whenyou're ayoung mumand

afarmer,but weare getting

good atmulti­tasking,” Marie

says.Having an engineer

husband at home to take care

of the farm machinery

certainly helps. Andrew

FitzPatrickwasraised on a

sheep andbeeffarm at Fairlie.

“I have averysupportive

husband who has been able to

look after the farm, and the

machinery is getting alot

bettertreated,”she says.

“I canstill do thestock work,

but Ican’t quite fit it all in.”

❛Our show has areally good committee, which is

very supportive and quite young in comparison to

other committees. ❜

Baby Margaretwillbebarely

eightweeks old on show day,

but has alreadybeenpresent

forscanningattwo weeksold,

weaningatfourweeks,and

was“outandabout” at anonfarm

heifer competition at six

weeks. “She will know thatthe

Angusisthebestbytheendof

it,” Marie says.

The family’sfarm, Timperlea

Angus,has 120 studcowsand

will host thethird on­farmbull

sale in October.

“It’svery exciting. It’s been

very well supported and we’ve

had some really good averages;

and everyone seems to be

pleased withourbulls.”

Marie andAndrew also

winter graze dairy cows for her

—Marie FitzPatrick

sisters and keep enough sheep

“to train the dogs”.

“Withthebaby around, the

dogs are getting alotless

attention thantheynormally

do,soweneededthesheep to

keep them busy.”

Marie’s sisters, Victoriaand

Hazel, andtheir respective

partners GlenTraynerand

Matt Clark, sharemilkfor their

parents, Clarenceand Linda

Timperley.

TheTimperleyfamilywillbe

well representedinthe crops

andbaleageclasses,and the

baking and jam classes, while

Marie’s nieces will be

competing in the highland

dancing section, organised by

her sister, Victoria.

“The hay and baleage

competition is going to be hotly

contestedbyour family to see

who’s going to win.

“We’re all going to the show,

so mum is on grandparent duty.

Between us there’s seven

grandkids.”

Marieis partofayouthful

presidentialteam,with senior

vice­president Letitia

Schroeder (whowould have

been president last year) and

Steve Macauley bothunder40.

“Weare really lucky. Our

showhas areally good

committee, which is very

supportive and quiteyoungin

comparison to other

committees, so we will

hopefully haveabit more

longevity.

“And we have an amazing

secretaryin ChristineRoberts,

who doesn’t want any more

young mumsfor awhile.But

we arereally luckytohaveher

as sheruns it like awell­oiled

machine.”

Dairy cattle to make awelcome return to show

Dairy cattle will make a

welcome return to the Oxford

A&P Show on Saturday, April

3.

While beef cattle made a

return for the 2019 show, dairy

cattle classes are being offered

for the first time since the

Mycoplasma bovis outbreak

nearly four years ago,

executive officer Christine

Roberts says.

‘‘We are really grateful for

the support that we’ve

received from dairy exhibitors

that have put their trust in us

and are coming back to the

show.’’

The relatively low numbers

of dairy cattle means there

will be plenty of room to

spread out the cattle, to ensure

no nose­to­nose contact.

Dairy cattle classes were

planned for last year’s show,

which was cancelled because

of Covid­19.

This year’s dairy cattle

judge is making the trip down

from the North Island, while

the beef cattle judge is coming

up from Southland.

School expands farm programme

By DAVID HILL

Oxford AreaSchool’s

agricultural programme

continues to grow.

PrincipalMike Hart says the

school is offering anew

practical on­farm courseas

part of an expanded

programme.

The new course builds on the

agricultural opportunities

offered, including competing

in the New Zealand Young

Farmers’ AgriKidsand junior

youngfarmer competitions, the

school’s own futurefarmer

contest,and the Oxford A&P

Show.

‘‘We are very excited to be

able to offer anew NCEA level

1course with amix of theory

and practical work,’’ Mr Hart

says.

The course has been

prepared by teacherJoseph

Burston and is supported by a

localfarmer, who has madehis

woolshed and part of his farm

available.

‘‘We are very lucky to have a

passionate teacher in Joseph

Burston,who is also afarmer of

goats,’’ Mr Hartsays.

‘‘He has come up with his

own vision and planneditout

and organised it. It takes the

passion of ateacher to make

thesethingswork becauseit

takesalot of extra hours.’’

The woolshed willbeused as

aclassroom, with students able

to apply their lessons into

making decisions aroundwhat

cropstoplant, stock to buy and

whether to repair fences.

‘‘It’s vital thatstudents can

applytheir knowledge and that

they make gooddecisions as

theirlegacywill be passedon

to next year’s group.’’

‘‘It’s brilliant. It shows people still have

abit of interest in sheep. Iwas expecting

really. We are very, very lucky that we’ve

had such good entries.’’

OXFORD A&P SHOW

24 North Canterbury News, March 25, 2021

Shearers have asecond crack at celebrating

By DAVID HILL

Oxford’s veteran shearers are hoping for

second time lucky as they look to

celebrate 50 years of shearing.

The Oxford A&P Show was scheduled

to mark 50 years of shearing at the show

last year, until the event was cancelled

because of the pandemic.

Shearing was first introduced to the

Oxford A&P Show in 1971, with 24

shearers and three blade shearers

lining up.

Among those first competitors was

Colin King, aleft­handed shearer who

went on to win the Golden Shears three

times. He later became Kaikoura MP

from 2005 to 2014, while Alex Macdonald

went on to win aworld blade shearing

title in Ireland.

Shearing judge Noel Hanley says

some of the original shearers are hoping

to do ademonstration during lunchtime

at this year’s show, including Mr King

and Roddy Kidd, who instigated the

competition.

An amateur artist, Mr Kidd created a

display board listing all 56 shearers in

the Oxford district from 1965 to 1975 for

last year’s show, which will be hung in

the showgrounds shearing pavilion.

With shearing entries closing on the

day, Mr Hanley says it is always ‘‘a bit of

an unknown’’ how many shearers will

compete, but he noted other shows

around the region had been well

supported this season.

‘‘Usually, Oxford clashes with the

Auckland Easter Show or the New

Zealand Shearing Championships in Te

Kuiti, but we’re not clashing this year.

‘‘So with Oxford on the Saturday and

the Mackenzie Highland Show on the

Monday, hopefully it might bring afew

North Islanders down.’’

The Auckland Royal Easter Show has

been cancelled because of Covid­19,

while the Te Kuiti Shears are being held

the following weekend.

‘‘With alot of events called off,

shearers just want to get out and

compete. It’s agood way for them to

connect with other shearers and

different gangs around the country, and

line up work for other times of the year,’’

Mr Hanley says.

Characters remembered ... Roddy Kidd

shearers in the Oxford district from 1965 to

1975. It will take pride of place in the

shearing pavilion at the showgrounds.

Big push for new community hub

By DAVID HILL

Pegasus needs its own communitycentre

to support agrowing population, says

Rhonda Mather.

Withapopulation now in excess of 3500,

Pegasus is ‘‘far outstripping predictions’’,

the Pegasus CommunityCentrevolunteer

says.

While the townhas atemporary

communitycentre, comprising two leased

shops in the town centre, the Waimakariri

DistrictCouncil is proposing apurposebuilt

centre in the 2021/31 Long Term Plan.

‘‘There’s alot of young families and

retiredpeopleinthe community,’’ Rhonda

says.

‘‘Our long­term goalwas always to have

our own community centre and our

submissionlast yearaskedfor the council

to put some land aside.

‘‘Weare pushing to get it completed in

threeyears and we are asking people to

make asubmission.’’

The council proposes to set aside$4.5

million in the LTP to buy land in the

2021/22 financial year, and the

constructionofa385 squaremetre

community centre is expected to begin in

2024.

Rhonda says the temporary community

centre is staffed by apool of 26 volunteers

rostered for two hours,three daysaweek.

The centreisabusy place, with236

visitors to thecentreinthe last three

months alone —and that doesn’t include

groupbookings and the 12 regular user

groups.

Acommunity bookcase withfree books

and jigsawpuzzles is available at the

centre, while Rangiora’s Hope Community

Trustbegan offering weekly counselling

sessions this month.

Despite perceptions, the centreisrun

entirely by volunteers,with no paid staff.

But the team is set to receiveaboost,

with agroupofuniversitystudents about

to do afive­week internship under the

guidance of volunteer Pegasuscommunity

connector Ronel Stephens.

‘‘Theywill help us put together some

activities. Aschool holiday programme is

somethingthat is lacking in Pegasus,so

that’sone of theoptions,’’ Rhonda says.

Ronel’s Community Cuppa is apopular

event in the centre, and it has received a

boost with a$500 grant from the Woodend­

SeftonCommunity Board.

‘‘Ronel is abit of alegend in our

community and there’sareason it’scalled

Ronel’s Community Cuppa, because it

wouldn’t be the samewithouther,’’

Rhondasays.

‘‘It’sbeen going for four years, as longas

the centre has been open, and Ronelwas

footing the bill herself to start with.’’

Shear determination

drives Troy’ssuccess

By DAVID HILL

As ateenager growing up in Southland

two decades ago, Troy Pyper had one

goal —torepresent New Zealand in

shearing.

Mr Pyper, now settled in Cheviot, has

been selected for three trans­Tasman

shearing test teams and has shorn sheep

around the world.

‘‘My advice to young shearers starting

out is to make agoal and make it happen.

Whatever you do, you’ve got to have a

goal; otherwise you’re just coasting.

‘‘It’s alittle bit of hard work, but it’s

definitely worth it and it takes you

places. It’s taken me around the world.’’

Growing up around shearers, his

mother was ashearer’s cook and his

uncle and cousin were both professional

shearers.

‘‘My cousin said ‘you never really start

shearing until you’re 30 years old’, so I

went overseas and had some fun and

then Icame back.’’

After shearing professionally for just

three months, Mr Pyper met ayoung

Welsh shearer who invited him to work

in Wales.

That was 20 years ago and, as a

teenager, he won the senior final at the

Royal Welsh Show.

On his way back, Mr Pyper worked in

Western Australia, where he was

introduced to Merinos.

‘‘I jumped off the plane, Iwas just 18 or

19 years old, and Icaught abus and went

up to aplace called Dongara.

‘‘That experience in Western

Australia shaped me as ashearer,’’ Mr

Pyper says.

While there he received mentoring

from an experienced shearer who had

represented both New Zealand and

Australia in shearing tests.

Of all the breeds he has shorn, Merino

is his preferred sheep.

Last October, Mr Pyper won the New

Zealand Merino Championship at

Waimate, which earned him selection in

the New Zealand test team to face

Australia for the third time.

The test has not taken place because of

Covid­19, but he was part of the national

team which defeated Australia at the

Golden Shears last year, having

previously been part of aNew Zealand

team which lost on Australian soil.

Over the years, Mr Pyper has won 32

open finals including four in Australia,

the New Zealand Corriedale

Championship at the Canterbury A&P

Show in 2015 and 2018 and the New

Zealand longwool title at Lumsden last

year, as well as two appearances in the

Golden Shears final.

His personal bests are 670 crossbred

lambs shorn in anine­hour day and 500

ewes in 9hours, but he hopes to pass 600

ewes and 700 lambs.

Now living in Cheviot with his partner,

Ripeka Ferris, Mr Pyper says he enjoys

being close to the beach.

‘‘You’ve got to work and have abit of

leisure as well. Ienjoy abit of fishing

and surfcasting and Ijust love

everything about the beach. It’s my local

supermarket.’’

Ideas grow into business enterprises

By DAVID HILL

The Covid­19 experience has prompted

locals to explore new opportunities.

Enterprise North Canterbury

business manager Miles Dalton has

been flooded with enquiries since last

year’s lockdown, as local residents have

taken the opportunity to re­examine

their goals.

More than 100 enquiries have been

received from people interested in

going out on their own over the last 12

months.

He is working with 27 projects likely to

lead to new businesses and several are

expected to create jobs.

Waipara resident John Dingle has

taken the plunge, launching anew

business, New Life Washing Machines,

in September.

‘‘I’ve had thoughts of being my own

boss for anumber of years, but it was

Repairs ... John Dingle, of Waipara, has

created abusiness out of giving new life to

washing machines.

that time of being at home around Covid

that prompted me.

‘‘I had the time to fiddle with abroken

washing machine we had at home

during the lockdown and it just went

from there.’’

After seeking advice from friends, he

sat down with an accountant and

registered acompany name, but soon

realised there was alot more to it.

Thanks to Ministry of Social

Development funding, ENC has been

able to offer afree business start­up

course and Mr Dingle was lucky enough

to get on the course.

‘‘It was really helpful and filled in alot

of gaps and opened my eyes to what a

business is about, and knowing all the

resources that are available to help you.

‘‘And now I’m able to get ongoing

support from Miles.’’

Mr Dingle is buying old washing

machines and giving them aclean­up

and service to onsell with athree­month

warranty.

Nutritionist Alyssa Wright has been

quietly working away at setting up her

own business, Youtrition, since the

lockdown.

She says completing ENC’s business

course has been abig help.

‘‘There’s alot more to it that Ididn’t

even think about.

‘‘It has helped to answer my questions

and it’s not so daunting now. It’s just

taken alot longer than Ithought to do it

properly.

‘‘It’s alot of hard work, but knowing

there’s someone you can talk to makes a

big difference.’’

Ms Wright is looking to develop an

online presence with videos and recipes

to raise her profile so she can offer

individualised nutrition services.

Both Mr Dingle and Ms Wright are

continuing to work in paid employment

while their businesses become

established.

They encourage others to take the

plunge, provided they do their

homework first.

‘‘I would say to anybody who has an

idea, to go and talk to abusiness adviser

or someone who is in business already,

and once you’ve gathered some

information, go to an accountant so see

what’s required,’’ Mr Dingle says.

New opportunities ... Alyssa Wright is looking to turn her nutrition expertise into a

business venture.

PHOTOS: SUPPLIED

Ms Wright cautions: ‘‘Don’t try to do it

all on your own.

‘‘Seek as much help as you can and

take your time.’’

There are several options for setting

up abusiness, depending on what

prospective business owners want to

achieve, including charitable trusts,

social enterprises or commercial

enterprises.

used by scoutsworldwide, as a

token of friendship.

The Rangiora ScoutGroup’s

cubs leader, AkelaJudy Evans,

who was born in Wales but now

lives in Sefton, says the cubs in the

chance to learnaboutIrish history,

the patron saints and the nation’s

cooking.

Finalists decided

in tight matches

Sefton and Darfield will compete

for country cricket’s premiership

this weekend after both won

enthralling semi­finals on

Saturday.

Two CRV Ambreed Country

Premier One Day 2020/21

competition semi­final matches

came down to the wire.

At Sefton Domain, visiting

Ohoka batted first and made 237/7

thanks to half centuries from

opener Daniel Lyons (69 runs off

84 balls) and Harry Fitzpatrick (59

off 83).

There were afew late lusty

blows from Austin Hamilton,

whose unbeaten 36 off just 23

balls meant Ohoka went into the

change of innings with adecent

total and full confidence.

Sefton’s run chase was

stuttering at 97/4, before Lance

Taylor (49 off 84) and Seals club

legend Nigel Granger (51 off 47)

put their finals hopes back on

track.

But Ohoka still held the upper

hand going into the final overs,

with time running help.

Enter Tim Muir to the batting

crease, whose big hitting turned

the match with the flash of his

blade.

Muir smashed astaggering 42

runs off just 18 balls, including

three sixes, to help Sefton snatch

asensational two­wicket win on

the penultimate delivery,

stunning ashocked Ohoka, which

appeared to have the game in the

bag.

Sefton will play this weekend’s

final against Darfield, which also

came out on the right side of a

close and quality match against

Leeston­Southbridge.

Darfield batted first at Leeston

Park and, thanks to contributions

throughout its order, made 209 in

its allotted 45 overs.

Half centuries from brothers

Harry and Sam Chamberlain set

up Leeston­Southbridge, which

appeared to be cruising for

victory. But when Harry, a

Canterbury Aplayer, was trapped

lbw by Zak Foulkes, who grabbed

four wickets with the ball, the tide

started to turn.

Ben Chamberlain then took up

the challenge, making aruna­ball

28 before he was out in the

43rd over, still with 21 runs

needed for victory.

In the end, Leeston­

Southbridge fell seven runs short,

missing out on achance to add the

Canterbury Country T20 title to

the season’s achievements.

Short scoreboards

Ohoka 237/7 (D Lyons 69, H

Fitzpatrick 59, AHamilton 36no,

to Sefton 238/8 (N Granger 51, L

HOWAMARVEL HEALTH SCAN CAN

HELP BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM

When you think of your

immune system, you

probably think ofhow the

body fights viruses and

bacteria. But the immune

system performs amuch

more significant role than

that. Your immune system

regulates inflammation,

and unregulated

inflammation isthe cause

of nearly every disease.

Inflammationdescribes the

body’sresponsetoaninjury.

Therefore,inflammation has abeneficial

purpose in thebody. It helps thebody

repair itself.Theproblem is when

inflammation becomesuncontrollable,

when theimmunesystembecomes

dysfunctional.

At Marvel Health,Our Full-body

Scan examines thebodyindetailto

determinethe hiddencausesofaweak or

dysfunctional immunesystem.

The humanbodystrivesfor homeostasis

or balancetosurvive,and theimmune

systemplays acrucial part in this process.

The immune systemisresponsible for

detecting anythingforeign entering the

inflammation anddisease.

Marvel Health Identifies thehidden causes

of diseases, includingmicrobes such as

serious consequences.

“The speed you are travelling atdirectly impacts

the outcome if you have tobrake suddenly, take

evasive action or are unfortunate enough tohave a

crash,” Colin says. “Speed always plays apart and

can be the difference between someone walking

away from acrash or not.”

“The Key of Knowledge ..“(Luke 11:52)

THE GOD OF THE BIBLE

-THE ONLY TRUE GOD

There are a multitude of idols classed as

‘gods’. How does this compare with the Bible’s

statement that there is ONE God and no-one else

beside him. Therefore he must be supreme. All

Bible claims are supported by evidence, proving

his existence, and providing hope and confidence

in the promises recorded by his prophets. What

book can compare with the Scriptures in giving

an answer to all the questions of life?
