Fears that rural voice will be lost

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Fears have beenvoiced that

rural communities willbeleft

out in thecold in the recently

announcednationalhealth

reforms.

Thisisdespiterural

inequitiesbeing identifiedas

aseriousissue through the

Healthand DisabilitySystem

Review.

The LabourGovernment

plans to replace alldistrict

health boardswith one

nationalorganisation,Health

New Zealand.

Healthcare advocates and

local politicians hopethereis

something in the detail still to

be announcedthatwillensure

the rural voice is not lost, and

there is equitable access to

servicesfor rural dwellers.

New Zealand RuralGeneral

Practice NetworkChief

ExecutiveDrGrant Davidson

is disappointed at the lackof

referencetorural people and

communities as apriority

population.

‘‘Our concernisthatwithout

rural being identified

alongsideMaori,Pasifikaand

disabledpeople as priority

populations,our voice risks

being lostinthose

implementation discussions,’’

Dr Davidson says.

He hopesthatHealth

Minister Andrew Little and

Associate Minister Peeni

Henarewillofferfurther

detail at theNational Rural

Health Conferenceat

Wairakei Resort in Taupo this

weekend.

Hurunui Mayor Marie Black

and Waimakariri MP Matt

Dooceysharehis concerns.

Mrs Black saysitiscritical

thatHurunui residents havea

choiceofaccessing

appropriate,timely and

equitable health careservices

close to home.

‘‘Isupport services that are

deliveredinaco­ordinated

mannerthroughour general

practice teams,’’ she says.

MrsBlack livesinhope that

acommentfromMrLittle that

“weare going to putthe

emphasis squarely on primary

andcommunity healthcare”

will strengthenthe

opportunity for health

servicestomeet the needsof

people, families and thewider

HurunuiDistrict.

Mr Dooceysays equitable

accesstohealth services is an

absolute must­have.

“Having worked in the

British NationalHealth

Service forover 10 years, I’m

scepticalofacentralised

approach that would give

more powertoWellington.’’

Mr Dooceysays the

‘‘postcodehealth lottery

system’’ hastochangesothat

peopledon’t loseout on

surgeries they needjust

because of which district

health board theyfall under.

He cited arecent casein

which he advocated for

surgery for aconstituent.

He saidhewas abletogo

directly to thechiefexecutive

of the Canterbury District

Health Boardtorepresent the

woman’sconcerns.

‘‘I am very concernedIwon’t

be abletodothiswhen

decision­makers arebased in

Wellington.”

Mr Doocey is urging Mr

Littlenot to renege on the

Canterbury DistrictHealth

Board’scommitment to a

promised seven­day

integratedfamily health

servicethat will provideafterhours

Waimakaririresidents.

He sayshewillwrite

Family plans to make

chambers alocal hub

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The Amuri ChambersinCulverden has

anew owner.

The Croft family, whichhas been in

Culverdenfor 33 years, has boughtthe

chambers, the former home of the

AmuriCounty Council.

The building was constructed in the

early1920s,with an extension addedin

the 1970s.

The original logo of the council, a

merino ram,isinserted in glassinthe

frontdoor.

The council was dissolved in the reorganisation

of local governmentinthe

1980s.

Vorayand David, and their children

Catherine and Robert,envisagethe

building becoming acommunity hub,

with the meetingchamber to stayjust as

it is, for anyone to use.

The Hurunui District Council offered

the buildingbytender in January.

Vorayhad always had her eyesonthe

chambers, as she was keentorevampan

old building.

They plan on enhancing the historical

1920sfeatures and polishing up the most

recent back section of the building.

‘‘This is the last significantbuilding in

Culverden. We want to take it back to its

former glory,’’ Voray says.

Restoration is not new to the Crofts.

Family members haverevived old

dwellings on theirfarm, Hillcrest

Catherine lives in Christchurch, but

worksinNorth Canterbury, so is looking

forward to movingcloser to home.

“It’ssomething to do together.Itwill

be fun.It’s nice to have areason to come

back.It’s exciting.”

Big plans ... Voray Croft with daughter

Pair to part with works

By SHELLEY TOPP

Acollection of artworkthat has inspired its

owners for more than 20 years is attracting

considerable attentioninanexhibition.

The works,byLytteltonartist Roger Hickin,

are being offered for sale by Ohoka’sJilly and

Christopher Marshall at the Roger Hickin

WorksFrom 1989­2009 exhibition in the

Rangiora Library’s Chamber Gallery.

‘‘It is ratherdifficult to let them go butasI

am now 81, sometimes you have got to say

goodbye to old friends earlier thanyou might

wish,’’ Christopher said.

The coupledecided to holdthe exhibition at

the Rangiora gallery rather than at abigger city

gallery because of Christopher’s previous

involvementwith the WaimakaririArts

Council.

‘‘I have chosen the ChamberGallery in

Rangiora, which is part of the Waimakariri

Arts Council, as its host, to benefit in asmall

financial way through the commission on

sales,’’ he said.

Mr Hickin is also anotedpoet, translator,

publisher, picture framer and former owner

of Under the RedVerandah Cafe in

Christchurch, where he established agallery

for his artwork.

He has exhibitedregularlythroughout New

His workisinfluenced by two of New

It was great to have

Anzac services again

Last year, my family andIjoined our

neighbours to stand at our letterboxesto

mark the Anzac Day dawn service as our

country fought anew threat —thatof

Covid­19.

This year, my wife andItookjoy in

attendingservicesagain around our

district and standing withour residents to

honour our veterans’contribution to the

peaceand freedom ourcountry enjoys

today.

Our districtheldarange of services,

starting on Saturday before continuing

intoAnzacDay,and eachone is special.

Thankyou to all ourRSAsand

community organisationswho organised

suchspecial events to bring us together as

acommunity; lest we forget.

Iwas thrilledwhen theCanterbury

District HealthBoard reversedits

decisiontodeclinesurgeryfor Rangiora

mumGinalast week after Iwent in to bat

for her.

Ginawas let downbythe postcode

lottery health systemafterbeingtoldthat

thesurgery she needed wasnolonger

offered by theCDHB.

Withoutthe surgery, this mumwould

have had apoor qualityoflife.

Shewould have beenunable to

continue workingasher speech would

have been severely impactedand she

wouldhavehad to eatthrough astrawfor

therestofher life.

Iurgently wrote to thehealthminister

and, afterhedeclined to intervene, I

wroteto, and then metwith,the board

chief executiveto push for Gina to have

her surgery.

Iwas thrilledwhenwegot it over the

lineasaone­offsurgery.

Helpingresidents likeGinaisone of

the most rewardingpartsofmyjob as

local MP.I’m thrilledfor her, her family

andI’m proud of thecommunity that

rallied around her.

Isupport theabolishment of the

postcode healthlotterysystem as part of

theGovernment’s move toacentralised

healthbody, announcedlastweek.

However, having worked in the British

National HealthService for more than10

years, Iamscepticalofacentralised

approach thatwould give more power to

Wellington.

In the caseofGina, as the localMPI

wasable to go directly to thechief

executiveofthe Canterbury District

Health Board to represent my

constituent’sconcerns. IamconcernedI

won’t be able to do this whendecisionmakers

are based in Wellington.

Our rural firestations playavaluable

role in our communitiesand it was agreat

honour recentlytoofficially open and

speakatthe SwannanoaTemporary Fire

Station.

Weare lucky to have suchhardworking

volunteer firemen and women,

whocommit hoursofvoluntary service in

keeping our community safe.

Not onlyare our volunteer firebrigades

thefirst point of call forprotecting lives

and property fromfire, butinourrural

communitiesthey can also be the first to

respond to medicalemergencies and

motor­vehicle accidents.

Being able to formallyacknowledge

theircommitment andthatoftheir

families was aprivilege.

in far­off lands, includingthe South

African War, World War 1, World War 2,

the Korean War, the Malayan Emergency,

the BorneoConfrontation, the Vietnam

War, and recent conflicts such as

Afghanistanand peace­keeping roles in

places including Iraq, Bosnia, Cambodia,

East Timor, and the Solomon Islands.

Anzacservicescarryaspecial

significance for everyone.

My familyand Iremember the service of

my great­grandfather who was amember

of the NorthCanterbury Mounted Rifles,

and my grandfather, who left from Kaiapoi

to serve in WorldWar 2.

He was captured in the North African

desert and spent fouryears as aprisoner of

war. My grandfather’s name, Ronald

JamesEdwardGordon, is rememberedon

the Kaiapoi War Memorial.

Iamnot sure how my great­grandfather

and grandfatherfelt when they left,but

many young men thought it wouldbean

adventure that would last only ashort

time.Looking back, we know this was not

the case.

The Waimakariri District lost 251men in

WorldWar 1, about 10 percentofthe

populationatthe time. The totalnumberof

New Zealand troops and nurses who

served overseas was 100,444 from a

population of aroundone million, so about

10 percent of our populationfoughtinthe

war, with 18,500 dying and 41,000 being

wounded. In World War 2, our district lost

around 73 men. About 140,000Kiwis

served overseas during World War 2. Of

those, 11,625died, aratio of 6684 deaths

per million,which was the highestrate for

Commonwealthcountries.

It is important to remember the bravery

of those who headed intothe unknown.

Youngmen like the three Toddbrothers

from Kaiapoi —Oliver, Ernest, and Jack—

who left New Zealand in 1916,1917 and

1915 respectively. Oliver was killed in

Belgium in June 1917, aged 31, leaving

behind his wife.

His younger brother Ernestwas killed

during the Battle of the Somme in April

1918,aged just 22. He left behind awife

and an infant son. The onlybrother to

return was Jack,who becameafarmer.

During my research, Idiscoveredthat a

Belgian artistand cyclistnamed Ronny

who regularly visitsthe military cemetery

in Nieppe, France, where Oliverisburied,

sculptured abeautiful figurine and

randomly chose Oliver’s grave for his

memorial.

On June17, 2018,100 yearsafter Oliver

died,Ronny completed acycling race that

endedatop MountVentoux in France,

whereheleft aspecial mementoto

remember Oliver’s courage and selfsacrifice.

He continues to visit the

cemetery weekly.

The many memories passeddown by

generations of Waimakariri residents

shows that the supreme sacrifice made by

New Zealanders is never forgotten, neither

here nor overseas.

We remember them—today, tomorrow,

and forever.

Tennis club farewells old venue

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Aslice of Rangiora’shistory

was farewelled recently.

Members of the Rangiora

Tennis Clubgathered one last

time at their homeof92years

in King Street north.

The new owner takes

possession this week, with

houses to replace the five

courts, clubhouseand green

space.

PresidentLaurence Smith

said at the club’s closing thatit

was abittersweet day.

Bitter becausethere were so

many memories for so many

people at thevenue,and sweet

because it was the beginning of

anew era for tennis.

Club members,many of them

veterans, turned out to enjoy

one last day of tennis, the

camaraderie and the

memories at the venue.

Rangiora and Southbrook

will now embarkonajourney

to become one, and move to

Coldstream Road, to a

purpose­builtvenue.

Both clubs have sold their

home bases and, along withthe

Waimakariri District Council,

will investthe proceeds in

theirnew home.

Decades ago, Larry Devlin

led the charge to buy the 2 1 ⁄2

acresinChurch Street,and

buildcourts and apavilion.

Kaikoura to boost roads, tourism

By DAVID HILL

Roadingand tourismare set to

looks to the future.

The KaikouraDistrict

Councilproposesspending

$4.7million over the nextsix

years to upgrade the district’s

roading network,while

Destination Kaikoura is set to

receiveacash injection from

thisyear’s 2021/31 Long Term

Plan(LTP).

Councillorsapproved the

draft plan at last week’s

councilmeeting, ready to be

sendtoAuditNew Zealand.

‘‘Weunder­invested in our

roadrenewals and resealing

pre­quake, so we want to

significantly increase our

investment to bring us up to

where we should be with our

level of service,’’ chief

executiveWill Doughty says.

Urban footpathswill receive

much­needed maintenance,

withanextra $100,000ayear

proposed to be spent from next

yearbecauseofunderinvestment,

he says.

‘‘Once we address the

infrastructure profile, things

are looking prettygood for the

nextwee while.’’

The $38m earthquake

rebuild, withcentral governmentsupport,

has left the

districtinastrong position, he

says. ‘‘We now consider

ourselves financially

sustainable in the shortterm,

Destination ... Kiwis have been rediscovering Kaikoura as apopular destination.

which is adifferent storyto

what we werelooking at 18

monthsortwo years

back, which is very

good news.

‘‘One of the things

is all councils are

havingtoset their

LTP in the context of

some big reforms for

three waters,the

Resource

Management Act and

the future of local

government.

‘‘So we’veset the plan as best

we can in the knowledgethat

there’s somebig things on the

Will Doughty

horizon that we don’t know the

ins and outs of.’’

The councilis

proposing an average

rates rise of 5.2

percent for this year

and then an average

annualrise of 3.2%

for the next nine

years.

The draft LTP

consultation

document will go

back to the council

nextmonth for final approval

before going outfor public

consultation in June andfinal

adoption by the end of July.

Better, stronger ... The $38m earthquake rebuild, with central government support, has left the

district in astrong position

EXPERIENCE KAIKOURA

North Canterbury News, April 29, 2021

PHOTOS: DESTINATION KAIKOURA

‘‘It means we will missthe

statutory deadline of June 30,

but we signalledthat early on

and we are finding thatother

councils are in the same boat,’’

Mr Doughty says.

The council has imposeda

cap of $15m on external

borrowing, so while the

district’s debt is set to climb to

just under $10m in 2026,itwill

leave ‘‘some head room for

future unknowns’’.

The district wasfacing

challenges following Covid­19

border restrictions, which saw

the council boost funding to

DestinationKaikoura from

$180,000 ayear to $225,000 last

year. Councillors proposeto

continue the extrafundingfor

the next 10 years.

‘‘We’verecognised the work

DestinationKaikoura has done

in redirectingits effortsto

domestic tourism, whichhas

helped to fillsomeofthe gap,’’

Mr Doughty says.

‘‘Now we needtolook at the

Australian market and to

ensure we are well­placed

when theborder opensup.’’

Waste is alsoonthe agenda,

as the council considers the

closureofthe Kaikoura landfill

in 2024.

The council will be looking

to either join with the other

Canterburycouncils at the

Kate Valley Landfillorlook at

options further north,Mr

Doughtysays.

Following community

consultation, the council is

introducing kerbside rubbish

collection in the township on a

fortnightly basis.

Mattes on afast learning curve

By DAVID HILL

Whatadifference ayear

makes.

Twelve months ago,

winning the Dairy Trainee of

the Year in the Canterbury/

North OtagoDairyIndustry

Awards could not have been

further from the mind of

Rangiora’s Mattes

Groenendijk.

Mr Groenendijk, originally

fromthe Waikato, decided to

movetoCanterbury just

before the Covid­19 lockdown

after being made redundant,

joininghis partner who had

moved south for anew job the

previousmonth.

Mr Groenendijk, agraduate

fromMasseyUniversitywith a

masters degreeinanimal

science, decided the time was

right to embark on adairying

career.

‘‘I was down herefor the

lockdownand it all happened

pretty fast. Therewere plenty

of dairy farm jobsgoingand

thisone fit the bill.’’

Mr Groenendijk started

workinJune as afarm

assistant,working across two

NgaiTahu Farms at Eyrewell,

nearOxford —one milking

970 cowsand the other 930

cows.

There were usuallyfour

staff on each farm,with casual

labour to help during the busy

periods.However, Covid­19

led to staff shortages.

‘‘I first started duringthe

winter and it was great. It was

niceand cruisey, not getting

up early and not having to do

long hours,and then calving

hit.

‘‘It’s been afast learning

curve, but it’sbeen good. I

thinkwe’vegot apretty good

crew and the farms are pretty

well set up, withmodern

systems, centre pivots and

modern milking sheds.’’

As wellasthe top prize, Mr

Groenendijktook home two

meritprizes, the FMG farming

knowledge award and the

DairyNZ practical skills

award.

‘‘Having studied and having

that background gave me good

knowledge for the interview

questions, but on the practical

side Iwas surprised to win.

‘‘I was abletoidentify all

the different types of feed and

Ihad to do atractor pre­start

check, but theyasked me to

name some water pipefittings

and Ihad no idea. I’ve never

had to go to the shop to buy

them before.’’

While his fellow trainees in

the dairy awards comprise

severaldifferent

nationalities, Mr Groenendijk

is aKiwi born to aGerman

mother and with Dutch

ancestry on his father’s side.

Long term, his goalisto

return to his familydairy farm

in the Waikato.

‘‘I wanttolearn as much as

Ican and over the nexttwo to

threeseasons to moveinto a

manager’s position.’’

The runner­upprize went to

KellyPoehls,afarm assistant

on adairy farm acrossthe

road from Mr Groenendijk.

Whilethere were

challenges in the industry, Mr

Groenendijkisoptimistic

aboutthe future.

‘‘My viewpoint is there’s

always challenges and there

always will be, but there’s

good demand for our product

and it will continue to grow

over time.’’

the club’s under­7 team.

At the same time he unveiled

the centennialplayingstrip—

Glenmark’s traditional blue

and gold hoops.

However, shortly after

kickingthe second of his six

successfulpenalty goals,

Retallick sufferedthe

ignominy of spending 10

minutes in the sin­bin whenan

eagle­eyedassistant referee

spotted that he still hadhis

mouthguardtucked into his

sock,having forgotten to put it

back in his mouth after the

kick.

The closeness of the scoring

kept the large crowd

engrossed,although

entertainingback play was at a

premium. Whenever the home

team threatened to establish a

sizeable lead, Ashley peggedit

back.

Most scoringcame in the

firsthalf, with both sides

scoring two tries. Hardworking

forwardsRichard

Taylor and Andrew Hull

scored for Glenmark­Cheviot

whilemid­field backs Scott

Barber and Andrew Tavendale

scored for Ashley.

The eight­point half­time

lead, 23 ­15, came courtesy of

Retallick’s accurate boot, and

he added three morepenalties

in the secondhalf, during

which Ashley could manage

onlyapenaltytry.

For Ashley, Louis James

madeagood fist of the hooker’s

role, while the Duckworth

brothers, Josh and Luke, at

prop, both turnedin

performances thatmatched

their build —solid.

As always, Mike Keane was

the glue that held the

Glenmark­Cheviot backline

together, whileHeath

Cruickshank was particularly

impressive at No. 6, and

captainand No. 8Ben

Andersonworked effectively

and gained asteadystreamof

qualityball fromthe lineouts.

But,ashas so often been the

caseoverGlenmark­Cheviot’s

current unbeaten streak,

which stretches backtoJune

15, 2018, the difference

between the two teams was the

tactical nous and accurate

goal­kickingofRetallick, who

amassedapersonal haul of 22

points.

Win for Saracens

Kaiapoi’sform in the first

two roundsofpool Cinthe

combined countrycompetition

suggested that it wouldbetoo

slick for Saracens.

However, such speculation

did not reachthe inner circle

of Saracens’ leadership.

Playing withthe wind,

Kaiapoi scored first with a

converted try midway through

the first half,but despite

relentless periods of attack, the

sidecould notadvancethis

score before half time.

Saracens, meanwhile, drew

level and then took advantage

of Kaiapoi being reducedto14

players when ared card was

issued.

The Rangiora CBK Men’s

Hockeyteam went intolast

weekend’s Division 1double

On Friday night,the side

came up against the fancied

Mid Canterbury team while

missing acouple of key players

because of injury and long

weekend holidays, including

its number1and back­up goal

keepers.

Despite these setbacks,the

team started well and was

lockedat2­all at half time,

beforeacouple of quick goals

in the thirdquarter saw the

side take a4­3 lead.

Mid Canterbury found an

equaliser, then pressed hard

for the win, and it took resolute

defence against several lastquarter

penalty corners for

Rangiora to hold on for the

draw.

However, the intensity of

that gametook its tollonthe

team for the secondleg of its

doubleheader againstHornby

on the Saturday.

Hornby had an easier win

thenight before, so had abit

able to claim a5­3 win overthe

community…

Draft Long Term Plan Updateand Next Steps

Consultation for the 2021-31 draft Long-Term Plan

has ended (12 April) with 161 formal submissions

and 139 people having their say via the quick polls.

The Long Term Plan (LTP) is Council’s key strategic

document and sets out projects and priorities, as

well as how much it will cost and how itwill be

funded for the coming 10 years.

During the engagement period the Council made

clear their areas of focus are making sure we

keep up with growth, Covid-19 economic recovery,

climate change/sustainability, and the impact of

the Three Waters Review.

They also specifically sought feedback on:

• New community facilities for Pegasus and north

Woodend (Ravenswood)

• Upgrades tothe Rangiora Library and wider

civic area

• Parking in Rangiora –includingacar parkbuilding.

Council staff will now process the submissions

which will then be prepared inareport to the

Mayor and Councillors todeliberate on. Any

submitters wishing tospeak to their submission

will be contacted to arrange atime to have that

opportunity at the hearings scheduled for early May.

Following deliberations (which take place between

25 -27May), amendments will be made to the

draft LTPbefore it goes before the Council for

adoption on15June.

Hear From the Tsunami Experts

Residents will havethe chance to hear from experts in

tsunami scienceaboutthe District’s newevacuation

zones at anumberofupcomingpublic meetings.

“This an opportunityfor our communities to geta

deeper understanding of the Tsunami risk fortheir

area,” says BrennanWiremu, Emergency Management

Advisor forthe Waimakariri District Council.

“These are rareevents, so people shouldn’t be alarmed;

however, it pays to be prepared as aprecaution.”

Brennan says the evenings will include advice for

preparing at home and responding to atsunami;

there will also be atime for questions and answers.

The meetings will be held throughout May and June

in the District’s coastal areas, including Kaiapoi,

Woodend and Pegasus. There will be an online

event for those who can’t make it in person.

Earlier this year, the Waimakariri District Council

released new tsunami evacuation zones after

scientific modelling showed that flooding from

alarge tsunami could travel further inland than

previously thought.

Play your Part in Road Safety

It’s thattimeofthe year when weather conditions

canaffect visibility forroadusers andextra careis

needed to ensurewekeepourselves and others safe.

Sunstrike can occur atany time of the day, but is

particularly prevalent during peak hours, especially

for drivers heading eastbound in the morning and

westbound in the afternoon. Combine this with

dirty windows and it’s arecipe for trouble.

To reduce the risk of sunstrike:

• Keep your windscreen clean, inside and out.

• Wear sunglasses.

• Use your car’s sun visors to block the sun.

For cyclists and pedestrians, we encourage the

use of bright or high visibility or reflective clothing

to ensure you stand out against the background,

particularly when sunstrike or fog ispresent.

Driving infog can also affect visibility and while

you may be able to see where you are going,

others may not see you asclearly or as quickly as

they normally would.

To reduce the risk in fog use your headlights and

front fog lights if you have them and again, make

sure your windscreen is clean.

Wherevisibility is affected by weatherconditions,

remember to reduceyourspeed.This allows youextra

Kaiapoi Christadelphians

“The Key of knowledge...” (Luke 11:52)

MORALITY MATTERS

The basis of a disciple’s walk is founded in the

teaching of the Bible. Herein lie the answers to

questions on morality. Choices bring consequences.

Society creates expressions to soften the ‘line in

the sand’, such as ‘moral relativism’ (considering

the circumstances over the reality) and ‘situational

ethics’ (no absolute moral standards) to name afew.

To understand God’s view of morality, wehave to be

familiar with his word. The freedom of choice to live

how you desire, has had and is having aprofound

effect on the lives of all mankind. Today is the day of

opportunity to seek him, and the salvation and hope

he has offered. All welcome
