Quarry

hearing

in May

Aresource management consultant for

the Waimakariri District Council and

Environment Canterbury has

recommended declining resource

consents for Taggart Earthmoving's

Rangiora Racecourse quarry proposal.

Senior resource management

consultant Adele Dawson saysinareport

her decision is based on concerns about

the proposal’s effects on groundwater

and being able to enforce conditions.

‘‘The reasons for this recommendation

are primarily related to the risks to

groundwater quality and drinking water

supplies down­gradient of thesite,’’ she

says in the report says.

‘‘The current groundwater monitoring

requirements proposed are unclear and I

am not sure if the applicant will be able

to manage excavation depth relative to

real­time groundwater levels and

identify any adverse effects on

groundwater quality which may occur,’’

Ms Dawson says.

‘‘Additionally,the responses to

monitoring results may not be effective

and difficult to implement, particularly

providing alternative drinking water

supplies.

‘‘Based on the current operational

practices, Iamconcerned that the need

to respond to groundwater

contamination during the life of the

quarry is alikely consequence.’’

However, she also noted in her 160

page reportthat if these issues and

others could be addressed the activity

may be acceptable.

But Ms Dawson stressed even if they

were addressed, concerns would remain.

The number of operational constraints

and monitoring requirementsnecessary

to manage the activity. They wouldbe

very difficult to comply with and enforce.

Relay for life raises over $100,000

By SHELLEY TOPP

Relay for Life North Canterbury has

raised more than $100,000 for the

Cancer Society’s Canterbury West Coast

Division.

Last Saturday’s relay at Rangiora’s

Dudley Park began at 10am and finished

at 10pm.

It attracted 597 participants in 48

teams and began with alap of honour

from cancer survivors and their

supporters.

Before the start, Waimakariri Mayor

Dan Gordon, who took part in the relay

as amember of the Waimakariri District

Council’s Ateam, told the large crowd

that Relay for Life North Canterbury

had aspecial poignancy for him due to

cancer touching his family.

Relay for Life North Canterbury was

one of 16 relays held by the Cancer

Society during March and April. Cancer

Society chief executive Elizabeth

Chesterman told the crowd at Dudley

Park every relay ``helps us to celebrate,

remember and fight back against cancer'

'.

This year’s Rangiora relay also

provided an opportunity to celebrate the

first 12 months of Rangiora’s Cancer

Society Centre serving the North

Canterbury community.

‘‘We hoped to raise $50,000 from the

relay so we are absolutely delighted to

have raised more than double this

amount’’ she says. ‘‘These funds will

enable us to continue to support those

with cancer in North Canterbury and the

wider Canterbury­West Coast region,

and we are so grateful to all of the

participants, sponsors and volunteers

who made this Relay For Life such a

positive and memorable event.’’

North Canterbury Cancer Society

Centre co­ordinator Gabrielle O’Connell

says she is proud of the work put in by

staff and the Relay for Life committee,

and overwhelmed by the generosity and

enthusiasm of all the people who

contributed to the fundraiser. ‘‘It was

wonderful.’’

Heritage ...The Amuri Mounted Rifles parade at the Hawarden

A&P Show, during the 100th anniversary of World War 1. FILE: PHOTO

Hall celebration

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Culverden’s hall is steeped in

history, and its new owner

Jono Taylor is keen to share

it.

Astoryboard at the old Drill

Hall, the former home of the

Amuri Mounted Rifles, will be

unveiled at dawn on Anzac

Day, April 25.

At 6.30am five horses and

their riders will be in

attendance, as the Last Post

sounds out from Colin

Heslop’s trumpet.

The storyboard tells the

story of the Amuri Mounted

Rifles, initiated in 1899 by

Major Ralph Anderson

Chaffey. The Squadron was

made up of local men off the

farms in the district, who

trained shooting rifles while

on horseback.

It will also tell the story of

the Drill Hall, which today is

known as the Culverden Hall.

The hall was built in 1902

with funds appropriated from

local farm owner Duncan

Rutherford, who at the time

owned Leslie Hills Station

and Molesworth Station.

Mr Taylor says he and his

wife want to share the story of

the Amuri Mounted Rifles

and their former base, after

discovering their history after

buying the hall.

WINTER HEATING

10 North Canterbury News, April 15, 2021

Winter heating your home

When choosing heating for your home,

consider the amount of heatingyou

need,the runningcosts and the

environmental impacts of the different

options.

The World Health Organisation

guidelines recommend aminimum

temperature of 18deg in houses, or

higherfor more vulnerable groups like

children, the elderly and people who are

ill.

Thisrecommendation applies to all

occupied rooms in your house.

Before looking at heating options, sort

out your insulation —you’ll be able to

use asmaller heating system and your

home will be cheaper and easier to heat.

Heater type

For largerrooms thatyou want to heat

regularly, like aliving room, it’s worth

payingabit more upfrontfor afixed

2371001

Air to Water Heat Pump for Heating and Cooling

Wood Fired Central Heating

heaterwith lower runningcosts and

more heat outputthan asmall electric

heatercan provide. This could be a

modern woodorwood­pellet burner,an

energy efficientheat pump, or afourstar

qualifiedflued gas heater.

Electric heaters may be enough for

smaller roomsand roomsyou only heat

occasionally, like bedrooms.

Avoid unfluedgas heaters(with pipes

fixed to the walls or portable) which

releasetoxic fumes and moisture, and

open fires whichare draughty,

inefficient and in manycases no longer

acceptable in some areas.

Heater size

Match the size of yourheater to the

space you want to heat. An oversized or

undersized heater will struggle to heat

your roomeffectively, and can cost more

to run.

Ask your heating supplier for advice

about what size heater will suit your

needs.

Running costs

Running costs canvary alot

depending on yourfuel priceand how

well you use and maintainyour heating

appliance.

Environmental impacts

To minimise the environmental

impactsofyour heater:

Insulate first­keep the heatwhere

you need it.

Choose aheater that uses renewable

energy,like wood, wood pellets or

Staying warm and dry

As temperatures drop

and the days get shorter,

it’s agood time to start

thinking about how you

are going to keep your

home warm and dry this

winter.

The Government’s

Energy Efficiency and

Conservation Authority

(EECA) has afew simple

tips.

Keep your home warm.

Heat is expensive, so

save money by keeping

the cold air out and the

warm air in.

Windows and doors

★ Draw curtains at

dusk to keep the day’s

heat in. The best curtains

have aseparate lining

and are fitted close to the

window, wide enough to

generously overlap the

window frames at the

sides and long enough to

touch the floor. Apelmet

at the top is even better.

★ Consider DIY

window insulation kits,

which can cut heat loss

through windows by half

and are afraction of the

cost of double­glazing.

★ Stop draughts —

make sure your windows

and doors fit their

frames. Use draught

stopping tape around

windows and doors and

draught excluders or

door snakes along the

bottom of doors.

Heating

★ Turn your heaters off

when you don’t need

them (rather than leaving

them on when you’re not

there).This should

include your heat pump!

★ Set your heater

thermostat ­aim for 18 to

20C.

★ Many heaters are big

enough to heat only one

room so close doors and

in the evening pull

curtains.

★ Use aheater directly

in the room you want to

heat and keep the door

shut (unless you have

central heating).

Keep your home dry

Get rid of moisture and

dampness in your home,

Drying off ... Keep your home dry, while drying off your

laundry.

PHOTO: FILE

especially when you’re

cooking and washing.

★ Fix any broken or

leaking pipes, and clear

and fix gutters. Leaky

pipes and blocked or

broken guttering can

cause dampness inside

your home, which can

lead to mould.

★ Lay down aground

vapour barrier. This is

basically agiant piece of

black plastic sheet that

sits on the dirt under

your house, keeping

dampness in the ground.

★ Clear vents, check

outside to make sure all

underfloor vents are

clear of blockages. This

helps move damp air out

from under the house.

Inside

★ Cooking, showering

and washing all

introduce moisture to

your home. The best way

to get rid of this moisture

is with externally vented

extraction fans. If you

don’t have these, open

windows during or after

cooking, showering and

washing up.

★ Dry clothes outside

or in aclothes dryer that

is vented to outside. Try

not to use indoors airing

racks or clothes dryers

that vent into your house.

The moisture in the

clothes will end up in

your home.

★ Air your home, open

windows and doors afew

times aday to air the

house and let moisture

escape, even in winter.

Don’t forget to open

wardrobe and cupboard

doors.

★ Ventilate your

bedroom, sleeping with

your bedroom window

open acrack lets out the

moisture that naturally

builds up over the night.

★ Air your bedding,

especially in winter.

Duvets, pillows, and

other heavy bedding

absorbs moisture over

time, so air them

outdoors when it’s sunny.

★ Avoid unflued gas

heaters, which release

toxic fumes and make

your house damp. Cheap

portable electric heaters

are safer and cost less to

run.

WINTER HEATING

North Canterbury News, April 15, 2021

Be fire wise this winter, says FENZ

‘‘Firefighters don’t like fire

movies’’ is the slogan behind

Fireand Emergency New

Zealand’s (FENZ) latestfire

safety campaigncoming into

winter.

The message is simple ­‘‘be

prepared’’, says FENZ’s North

Canterbury­based fire risk

management officer Kerri

Pring.

‘‘Now is the time to get your

chimney’s swept before

lighting the fire for the first

timethis year. Get it done

before the cold snap arrives.’’

Daylightsavings came to an

end over the long Easter

Weekend, so if you haven’t

already, make sure you check

yoursmoke alarmsare still

working and if they are still

within the expiry date,Kerri

says.

‘‘Most smokealarms onlylast

between 8to10years.Fire and

Emergency New Zealand

recommends photoelectric 10

yearlife longsmoke alarms.

‘‘Wealso recommend

installing one in each bedroom

and livingareas.Smoke from a

house fire can killinless than

three minutes.’’

Kerri saysone­third of all

residentialfires attended by

FENZlast year did not have

smoke alarmsinstalled.

Researchhas shown that you

are four timesmore likely to

survive ahouse fireifyou have

working smoke alarms.

should do to reducethe risk of

afire.

If you have afireplace,

ensure it has ascreen with a

properfireguard, and the

chimney has been swept.

Check that powerpoints or

multiboards are not

overloaded with high wattage

applianceslike heaters.

Matches, lightersand other

fire starting tools are stored

out of reach of children.

Lights are fitted with the

correct bulbsize and rating (in

watts) and alwayskeep atorch

near every bed in caseof

emergencies.

In the kitchen, you should

ensure the stovetop is clean

and free of any spilled fats or

burntfoods, the rangehood

filters have beencleaned

recently and keep afire

extinguisher handy and ensure

you know how to use it.

For those who have an

electric blanket on yourbed,

now is agood time to do aquick

checktomake surethere are

no exposedwires or twisted

cords.

‘‘These can cause electric

shocks, fire and even death, so

at the first sign of wearhave

your blanket checked and

tested by aqualified

electrician.’’

FENZ recommends

replacing electric blankets

everyfive years and if possible

get aheat­protected model.

If you have aclothes dryer,

please ensurethere is no lint

builtupinthe clothesdryer

filter, the dryer should be

checked regularly by a

professional to ensure there's

no dust built up in the back,

and ensurethere is plenty of

ventilation and air space

around the clothes dryer.

Beware of hackers

By DAVID HILL

Spark has admitted it failed to

followits own procedures, allowing a

local woman’semail account to be

hacked.

When contacted by North

Canterbury News,Spark conceded its

‘‘customerauthentication protocols

were not followed’’onmultiple

occasions, allowingthe hackers

accesstothe woman’s emailaccount.

This was in spite of repeated

attempts to resolve the matterbythe

woman,who is in her 70s and does not

wish to be named.

‘‘We wouldlike to offer our

apologies to this customer for their

experience with both our in­store and

onlinechat teams,’’ Spark said in a

statement.

‘‘Unfortunatelythese type of scams

are very common, where scammers

impersonateanother person or

business to extract detailsfrom a

customer.’’

But Kaiapoi IT specialistAaron

Lovelace, whosecompany

Techmedics assisted the woman, was

far from satisfied with Spark’s

response.

‘‘To me, it’s gross misconduct on the

part of Spark,’’hesays. ‘‘Can you

imagine if it was agovernment

department or an MP? Just because it

was a70­year­olddoesn’t mean it was

OK. To me their response is just a

complete fob off.’’

The woman receivedaphone call

which she thoughtwas from Spark and

inadvertently gave the caller access to

her computer.The nextday the

woman was unable to access her email

account, so visited her local Spark

shoptohave her passwordreset.

But unbeknowntothe woman,the

hackers had set up aforwarding email

address on her accountand after

several attempts to resolve the matter

through the Spark shop and via Spark

web chatover four days, she contacted

Techmedics.

Discovering thatemail forwarding

was in place,the Techmedics removed

the unknownemailaddress,set a

Techmedics email address as the

recoveryemailand added the

customer’scell phonenumberasa

recoveryoption. Laterthat afternoon

Techmedics received three password

resetemail attempts.

Afterobtaining customer

transcripts from Spark, Techmedics

discoveredthat whenasked security

questions by Spark, the hacker had

provided incorrect answers but was

stillallowedtoproceedand make

changes,including resettingthe

password and email recovery.

Sparksaid it would be investigating

the matter to ‘‘identify the people

involved’’.Sparkadvises people to be

wary of scam phone calls and emails.

Do not allow random callersaccess to

your computer or click on suspicious

links.

‘‘Regularly check that there is no

unusual activity on your email

account.This includes any autoforwarding

rules that you didn'tset

up. To check this in Xtra Mail:select

the right­hand menu, select‘settings’,

select ‘email’, select‘mail

forwarding’. If you see an address

you're not expecting, select‘disable

forwarding’, or delete the addressby

selectingthe ‘X’ next to the

forwarding address.’’

Kaikoura celebrates dark sky

By DAVID HILL

North Canterbury is one of

the bestplaces in the

world for stargazing and a

group of Kaikoura

enthusiasts would like to

keep it that way.

The town has been

hosting aseries of events

to mark International

Dark Sky Week, which

ended on Monday, as part

of the Kaikoura DarkSky

Reserve Working Group’s

efforts to raise awareness.

Towns like Kaikoura

and Oxford enjoy a

dazzling night sky that

rivalsthe Mackenzie

Basin,aninternational

dark sky reserve, in terms

of clarity. It is aprivilege

becoming increasingly

rare around the world due

to light pollution, dark sky

enthusiast Courtnay

Wilsonsays.

‘‘Fewer and fewer

peoplearound the world,

especially those in urban

centers, are able to see

this treasure. It’s

estimatedthat the Milky

Way is no longer visiblea

third of humanity. It’s

becoming harder and

hardertopick our place in

the universe.’’

Dark sky festivities

included ‘‘Discover the

Night’’ evenings at

Kaikoura Museum and

Fyffe House, and displays

throughout the week at

the main Kaikoura

Library and in the

Workinggroup leader

Nicky McArthur says light

pollution can be harmful

to the environmentand to

human health, while

effective outdoor lighting

can benefit all life. The

group aims to establish a

sky reserve at Kaikoura

International Dark Sky

Association.

opportunities,

particularlyduring the

winter months,which is

traditionally the off

The Galloway is ahardy Scottish

beef cattle breed, which was first

registeredinNew Zealandin1947

and there are now 90 registered

‘‘TheGallowayare very good

converters of rough pasture into beef

and they’re very maternal,’’she said.

‘‘They have smallcalves which grow

quickly and they have adoublecoat to

Community trusts progress ZIPA goals

By DAVID HILL

Community initiatives have

allowed the Waimakariri

Zone Committee’s

commitments to progress.

Addressing the committee’s

2020 annual report at last

week’s Waimakariri District

Council meeting, acting

chairman Cam Henderson

said the new Waimakariri

Landcare Trust, biodiversity

initiatives and new

catchment level projects are

helping to action the

recommendations made in

the 2018 Zone

Implementation Plan

Addendum (ZIPA).

‘‘I’m probably more excited

about where the trusts are

going. The zone committee is

not really designed for action

and Ithink that other zone

committees are finding that.

‘‘There is an expectation on

us to deliver something

rather than just make

decisions, but we don’t really

have the funding or the clout

to do that, so these new trusts

provide an opportunity to

make some progress.’’

Mr Henderson has been

active in establishing the

Waimakariri Landcare Trust,

which has been formed by

zone committee members and

working in with the

Waimakariri Next

Making progress ... The Waimakariri Zone Committee presented its annual report to the Waimakariri

District Council last week.

Generation Farmers Trust.

The trust has already

received Ministry for Primary

Industries sustainable food

and fibre futures funding for

athree­year trial which will

take a‘‘whole of farm’’

approach address

environmental challenges.

Anew community

biodiversity trust has also

been established and is

working in with the Selwyn­

Waihora Zone Committee.

Forming the trusts would

allow for funding

applications which otherwise

were not available to the zone

committee, Mr Henderson

said.

Zone committee facilitator

Murray Griffin said that 85

percent of the ZIPA

recommendations had been

‘‘progressed’’ in the last 12

months. Of those

recommendations, 59 were

being addressed in Plan

Change 7tothe Land and

Water Regional Plan, while

the balance were ‘‘actions on

the ground’’.

Catchment management

work had begun with

discussions in coastal areas

of Te Aka Aka estuary

(Saltwater Creek and

Waikuku), which were being

led by zone committee

member Carolyne Latham.

The zone committee also

approved Immediate Steps

funding for five biodiversity

projects in the district in

2020. Mahinga kai support

has also been offered to the

farming community, with the

first shed talks hosted by

Environment Canterbury pou

matai ko (cultural advisor)

Makarini Rupene.

Waimakariri Mayor Dan

Gordon praised the

committee’s efforts over the

last 12 months and

acknowledged the

importance of engaging with

the next generation of

farmers to resolve the

challenges.

Cr Sandra Stewart said the

zone committee was ‘‘looking

for some direction’’ from the

two partner councils of

‘‘where to next’’ and called

for funding to support the

delivery of the

recommendations.

‘‘I am heartened by the

work of the landcare trust and

the biodiversity trust, but

they have no support aside

from people’s own volunteer

efforts. If we expect these

committees to deliver we

need to make funding

available.’’

Wai: We care

"I joined the committee because changeisneededto

improve ourwater quality. Iwanttohelp by bringing a

practical,onthe groundpoint of viewtoensurethat the

actions areachievablefor thosewho have to makethem."

Saracens scored first in the

Rangiora men win

HOCKEY

Rangiora Hockey Club had atough

start to the 2021 winterseason which

opened last weekend.

Of the seven teams which playedup

till Monday night, only the Rangiora

CBK Division 1men and Mid Week

Open Men's Ateam were victorious.

Solid performances by several other

teams bodes well for future weeks.

The club is fielding threeadditional

senior teams this season, withayoung

coltsteam entered in the Division 3

Championship, and another team in

eachofthe Mid WeekMen's and

Women's competitions.

The Division1Men got their season

off to apositivestart with a2­1 win over

Avon.

The RangioraCBK Division 1women

were somewhat unlucky not to achieve

abetter result than their 3­1loss to

Avon.

The team heldtheir ownfor muchof

the game and dominated the last

quarter when behind by one, but just

couldn't findthe back of the net.

Avon's third goal came withjust a

few minutes left on the clock and

against the run of play,but was enough

to secure them the win.

The young Rangiora 2women's team

finished in a1­all drawwith Marist

Green in what is now the Sunday Super

League Premiership Competition

(formally Division 2).

However the Division 3

``Championship'' women's team

struggled in the near 30 degree heat at

Nga Puna Wai, goingdown 5nil to

Hearing Dates Set for Rangiora

Racecourse Resource Consent

Commissioners for the Taggart Earthmoving Ltd

Rangiora Racecourse resource consent application

have set hearing dates for early May.

The hearingwill commence 9am Tuesday 4May 2021

at theShowgrounds Function Centre, Rangiora. It is

expected to lastbetween fiveand six days.

Taggart Earthmoving Ltdhas applied to Environment

Canterbury (ECan)and WaimakaririDistrictCouncil

(WDC)for consents to establish,maintain and

operate an aggregate quarrylocated at theRangiora

Racecourse, 309WestBelt,Rangiora.

Full information can be found on Environment

Canterbury’s website.

The external planning officer for both ECan and

WDC applications has recommended the consents

are declined. This is partly based on alack of

understanding of the effects of the proposal, effects

on groundwater and enforceability ofconditions.

Waimakariri District Council has also given

evidence relating to the potential effects on wells

and flooding displacement.

However, the report from the planning officer does

note that if these issues, among others, could be

addressed the activity may be acceptable.

The resource consent applications were jointly

notified on 31 October last year and 404

submissions were received. Sixty-two submitters

wish to be heard in support of their submission, 394

are in opposition; nine support and one is neutral.

The key issues associated with the applications

relate to air quality, flooding, amenity values,

traffic, groundwater quality and noise.

Disposal of Asbestos

The Council reminds residents that items

containing asbestos are not accepted at any of its

transfer stations.

Decramastic roof tiles may contain asbestos, and

must be checked by Transfer Station staff before

being removed from vehicles. These have been

found in the scrap metal area on several occasions

recently and have incurred costly clean up fees.

Private companiescanhelp withtheremoval and

disposal of asbestos, andalocalCouncil operated
