Aprice to

pay for a

longer life

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Chisholm Lunn wants to see his

family grow up.

‘‘You cannotput avalue on

that,’’hesays.

The humble North Canterbury

man, who has cystic fibrosis,

keeps himselfasfit and healthy

as possible in his bid to livea

happy and fulllife alongside his

family.

But to make his future more

certain, the 47­year­old needs

access to Trikafta, alife­saving

medication.

The seriousand ultimately

terminal genetic condition

affectsabout 540 Kiwis.Itcauses

the body to produce thick, sticky

mucus which damages thelungs,

digestive system, liverand other

parts of the body.

Sufferersendure ademanding

and time­consuming dailyregime

of lung clearanceand often

medication, together with

regularmedical check­ups. Over

time, there are increasingly

frequent hospitalisations.

For some, alung transplant

may be the onlyremaining

option.

Chisholm was diagnosedwith

cystic fibrosis when he was 4.

Since the age of about 7, when he

read that he might only live to 12,

he has been aware that his life

expectancy was not great.

Chisholm says he has always

hoped,perhaps naively,that

when alife­changing treatment

becameavailable to improve his

quality of life and increase his

life expectancy, the health

systemwould be there.

But without changes to the

Pharmac funding system, he says

he may neverget accesstothe

drug. He sees no way of being

able to foot the bill himself, with

the drug costingmorethan

$400,000 ayear.

Chisholm has 54 to 56 percent

lung functionatpresent,thanks

to astrict regime of keeping fit

and doing everything he can to

stay healthy.

‘‘I have worked hard all my

life,’’ saysChisholm, whohas

never required asickness

benefit. This is in spiteofbeing

told he wouldprobably not live

long into adulthood,beable to do

certain jobs, or havechildren.

‘‘I challenged that, and just

went and did it.’’

Chisholm has, at varioustimes

in his life, turned his hand to

farming in Central Otago,farm

labouring, andworking in mines

in WesternAustralia to pay off

his studentloan.

He has lived in Britain where

he had afencing and landscaping

business, and worked in farming

and tourism.

Kaiapoi beats Glenmark-Cheviot

Glenmark­Cheviot’s golden run of

rugby wins is over, after its senior side

was undone by askilful and

determined Kaiapoi outfit.

It was June 2018 —nearly three

years ago —when Glenmark­Cheviot

last tasted defeat in aclub match.

But last Saturday it was convincingly

outplayed by aKaiapoi squad that won

by 20­13 in the Luisetti Seeds

Combined Senior Competition.

In doing so, Kaiapoi lifted the

coveted Deans Shield.

Glenmark­Cheviot now faces the

possibility of failing to qualify for the

championship round of the combined

competition.

All eyes will be on the side’s match

against the unbeaten Saracens team, to

be played at Cheviot this Saturday, as

part of that club’s jubilee celebrations.

The scrummaging effort by Kaiapoi

and its depth of front­row stocks

proved abig factor in its win.

Glenmark­Cheviot lost two of its

front rowers, and it was from that point

that Kaiapoi took control at scrum

time.

Spectators witnessed the rare sight

of the Glenmark­Cheviot pack going

backwards, at times being completely

demolished.

But Glenmark­Cheviot showed

enough resilience to twice draw level,

and at no stage during the match did

Kaiapoi’s lead extend beyond seven

points.

There was much relief among the

Kaiapoi faithful, who attended in

good numbers, when the final whistle

blew.

New bus service impresses councillors

By DAVID HILL

The new park­and­ride bus

service is proving to be a

success.

Discussing the service at

last week’s Waimakariri

District Council meeting,

several councillors said they

were impressed with the

service.

Environment Canterbury

figures indicate patronage

from Rangiora has been

particularly strong.

‘‘From personal

experience, it’s going very

well, and anecdotally it

seems to be well used,’’

Mayor Dan Gordon said.

He often uses the service

to commute to meetings in

the city.

Deputy Mayor Neville

Atkinson echoed the mayor’s

comments.

‘‘Personally, this seems to

be working well. The mayor,

myself and Cr Niki Mealings

have used these services to

get into Christchurch and we

can see with the number of

cars parked, and the bikes,

that it is being used.’’

Environment Canterbury

public transport general

manager Stewart Gibbon

says patronage on both the

Rangiora and Kaiapoi

services continues to

increase.

As at March 2021,

patronage from Rangiora on

the 91 city direct service was

averaging 168 passengers a

week, while Kaiapoi’s 92

service was averaging 76 a

week.

‘‘It’s important to note that

the Waimakariri direct

services are new, only

beginning in January of this

year,’’ Mr Gibbon says.

‘‘The progressive increase

in usage and engagement so

far is encouraging but it is

early days.

‘‘We will be continuing to

monitor the service and

engage with the community

to support wider awareness

and exposure to the service

offering and benefits,’’ he

says.

Warning over open drain

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Ahealth warning has been issued for

the Cust Main Drain at Skewbridge.

The warning by the Canterbury

District Health Board’s Community and

Public Health unit follows ahigh cover

of potentially toxic algae —benthic

cyanobacteria —aswell as detaching

mats, being found in the drain.

People should avoid the area, and

animals, particularly dogs, should not

be allowed near the water until the

health warning has been lifted.

People are advised to treat every lowflowing

river cautiously. They should

check for the presence of benthic

cyanobacteria and avoid contact.

The Canterbury medical officer of

health, Dr Cheryl Brunton, says the

algae look like dark brown to black

mats and can produce toxins harmful to

people and animals.

“Gathering of mahinga kai such as

watercress/puwha should be avoided as

exposure to the algae may cause skin

rashes, nausea, stomach cramps, and

tingling and numbness around the

mouth and fingertips,’’ she says.

“If you experience any of these

symptoms, visit your doctor

immediately; also let them know if you

have had contact with dark brown/

black algal mats or water in this area,”

Dr Brunton says.

Pets that show signs of illness after

coming into contact with algal mats

should be taken to avet immediately.

Tug of war hopes

to pull abig crowd

By DAVID HILL

Sefton School is set to host the 10th

anniversary Sefton Tug of War on

Sunday, May 23, one year later than

planned.

The school, just north of Rangiora,

has been annually hosting what is

believed to be New Zealand’s largest

tug of war competition as its major

fundraiser since 2011.

But last year’s pull became a

casualty of Covid­19.

‘‘We are just hoping it’s going to be a

big one after we missed out last year,’’

organiser Cam Booker says.

In 2019, more than 30 teams entered

and organisers are hoping for more

this year.

Primary school competitions were

added for the first time in 2019, with

competitions for Years 5­6 and Years

7­8 teams of eight plus reserves, with a

minimum of two girls.

Amberley School is the reigning

champion in the Years 7­8 contest, but

Sefton School has been training with

the aim of winning on home ground.

For the adults, there is the trophy

pull and mixed pull competitions for

teams of eight, plus up to two reserves.

While the trophy pull has an 800kg

weight limit, there is no weight limit in

the other grades. Mixed pull teams

must have at least four women.

Tug of war is more about technique

and ‘‘leg drive’’ than brute strength,

Cam says.

‘‘A lot of people think it’s about

having abunch of big guys, but it

comes down to technique and timing.

‘‘Even in the schools competition,

it’s not about having the big boys. In

the training sessions at Sefton School,

some of the boys have to eat abit of

humble pie as the girls tend to be

better at listening.’’

Average Joes has been the trophy

pull champions for the last few years,

so will be the team to beat, while Snap

Fitness took out the mixed pull in

2019.

Snap Fitness is also expected to be

back to defend the men’s and women’s

titles in the fastgrass truck pull

competitions.

Gumboot throwing and highland

dancing competitions are also being

held, while Pedalmania, abouncy

castle, market stalls and alicensed

bar will be on site to ensure there is

plenty of entertainment for all ages

throughout the day.

Seftonian Battlesports will be back

to round out the day’s entertainment,

inviting children to join in with paper

swords and flour bombs.

Sefton School’s ‘‘famous barbecue

burgers’’ will also be back, with the

addition of hot chips, candyfloss and

popcorn, Cam says.

Award recognises

flexible work hours

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Local electricity distributor

MainPower has been

gaining attention for an

industry­leading employee

well­being initiative that

offers staff the chance to

work anine­day fortnight.

The company was

recognised at the New

Zealand Energy Excellence

Awards gala in Wellington

recently, winning the wellbeing

category, which

celebrates excellence in

caring for employees.

MainPower, one of the

largest employers in North

Canterbury, offers staff the

option of working hours

that effectively make every

second weekend three

days.

MainPower chief

executive Andy Lester said

the initiative was ahot

topic at the awards gala.

‘‘This initiative is valued

by our staff and is looked at

within our industry as an

impressive and innovative

idea,’’ he says.

The nine­day fortnight

work pattern, as it is known,

was implemented in late

2019 after two trials.

The trials found there

was asignificant positive

impact on employees’ sense

of well­being and aboost in

work­life balance.

The company’s core

5

activity is carrying out

maintenance on the power

distribution network in

North Canterbury.

MainPower altered its

scheduling and planning

processes to ensure there

was no change to the work

delivery in the community.

MainPower’s general

manager of people and

culture, Sandra

O’Donohue, says staff have

indicated that having a

weekday off makes life

easier in terms of booking

appointments, keeping up

with household tasks, and

finding time to exercise.

‘‘People are also noticing

bonuses like saving money

on commuting and child

care,’’ she says.

‘‘The nine­day fortnight

work pattern is apoint of

difference for the company,

who were the first in the

electricity industry to offer

the flexible working

arrangement to staff.

‘‘Being an industry leader

in this area gives us an edge

at the recruitment stage

and better enables us to

attract and retain talent,

who would be unable to

find asimilar level of

flexibility and focus on

well­being elsewhere,’’ she

says.

‘‘This is critical in today’s

competitive labour

market.’’

We have used our Infrastructure

Strategy and feedback from the

community to decide what we are going

to focus our energy (and finances) on

for the next 10 years.

We have atight budget as we are

aware that the effects of Covid­19 on the

local economy are not going away soon.

But we do need to sort some core

work on roads and footpaths.

One of the main proposals is to

address the road resealing and renewal

backlog that has built up since 2010.

This is in addition to the large

increase we are going to spend on

renewing unsealed roads.

We also propose alarge increase to

upgrade our footpaths, and it is the last

chance to look at atown rubbish

We will let you know when the

Digital exclusion an issue for some older folk

By JOANNE GUMBRELL, chairwoman of the

Waimakariri Age­friendly Advisory Group

The coldest few months are coming.

Will it be another winter of our

discontent, as Shakespeare stated in the

first two lines of Richard III?

There is alot happening for older

people as we enter winter, and we heard

about some of this at our Waimakariri

Age­friendly Advisory Group meeting

recently.

Digital exclusion is an ongoing issue,

with older people fearful to use

computers for digital banking.

This becomes areal hurdle for them.

Westpac bank is closing in Kaiapoi so

residents need to travel to Rangiora to

visit their bank.

Libraries and SeniorNet have sessions

to help people learn how to do internet

banking.

What about the people who do not

have acomputer and do not want to have

one?

Aplus for older people at this time of

year has to be the winter heating

payment.

Aspeaker at the Grey Power AGM

talked about energy efficiency: Opening

curtains and windows and letting the

sun in, closing them as the sun goes

down, and keeping heat­pumps serviced

and free of dust to keep them running

efficiently.

We set the timer on our living room

one so the room is warm when we get up.

We are fortunate to live in awarm house.

‘‘Broadlyspeaking—and you get that

AMaori ward will not be established in

the Hurunui district. The council has

decided that, because of its low Maori

population,itcould not establish award

that would be fair and equitable to all.

Instead, it has decided to strengthen its

ties with Te Runanga Kaikoura and Te

Ngai TuahuririRunanga.

Chief executive Hamish Dobbie says it

was agreed to re­engage with the two

runanga, invite their input and enhance

relationships. ‘‘Therehas not been a

close relationshipbecause of our

geographical location,’’ he says. This

could be overcome and improved.

Mayor Marie Black says engagement

on the governance side of the council

could be improved.

Art excellence ... Oxford hairdresser Donna Coster with her portfolio of work, done as an

exhibition which opened at the Arts in Oxford Gallery last week.

Donna’sskills honed

in return to school

By SHELLEY TOPP

Every year, staff at the Arts in Oxford

Gallery are impressed by the high

quality of work submitted for the Oxford

Area School’s annual NCEA art folios

exhibition.

This year’s exhibition, Folio,an

exhibition of Oxford Area School NCEA

art folios by students achieving

excellence, opened last week.

It contains work from eight Year 11

students, four Year 12 students and one

Year 13 adult student, Donna Coster, a

hairdresser in the town whose children

went to the school.

Donna said she was encouraged by

Oxford Area School’s head art teacher,

Charlotte Davis, to join the school’s Year

13 art class.

This was after taking part in the Arts in

Oxford Gallery’s life drawing night

classes, which provide tuition on

observation and drawing techniques.

She contacted the school’s principal,

Mike Hart, to see if it would be possible

for her to join the art class. He gave her

his approval saying: ‘‘I can’t see why that

would be aproblem.’’

Donna said she enjoyed working with

the younger pupils in her class.

‘‘It was an absolute privilege to get

back into the classroom.’’

She believed that the students also

benefited from having an adult

classmate because they saw how she

valued the opportunity to learn, which

seemed to give them abetter

appreciation of the value of education.

Donna hopes to eventually have her

own solo exhibition at the Arts in Oxford

Gallery.

‘‘That is my ultimate goal,’’ she says.

Her work is influenced by Canadian

artist Adam Lupton and New Zealand’s

Seraphine Pick.

The Folio exhibition runs until

Sunday, May 23.

By DAVIDHILL

The North CanterburyRural

up its efforts to support the

region’s drought­affected

farmers.

Chairwoman Gayle

Litchfieldhas welcomed

AgricultureMinister Damien

O’Connor’s recent

announcementthat the

drought classification has been

extended to November 30.

The trust is workingto

employ adrought co­ordinator

to plan its reliefeffortsfor

farmers in NorthCanterbury

and BanksPeninsula.

‘‘It’s good news thatthe

governmenthas extended it

because it means we can

access more funds to provide

more support.

‘‘We hopetoput togethera

plan soon of how we can best

assist and helpfarmers in the

North Canterbury and Banks

Peninsula areas.’’

While farmers are looking to

the heavensfor rain, Mrs

Litchfield fears it may be too

late. ‘‘Weare hoping for some

rain soon, but the reality is the

rain is likelytocome too late

now for winter. It’sgoing to be

aharsh winterfor many.

‘‘I wouldestimate that many

farmersare already through 80

percentofthe reservefeed

they made in the spring.’’

Lookingahead, Mrs

Litchfield advises farmersto

look out for their neighbours,

keep an eye on staff, and

contactthe Rural Support

Trust if they need support.

‘‘Supporteachother and be

kind. And watchthis space. We

will havethings happening

Kaiapoi hub gains momentum

By DAVID HILL

The proposed Kaiapoi

Community Hub has received a

strong level of engagement.

Waimakariri District

Council community and

recreation manager Chris

Brownsays he has been

pleased with the community

feedback, as the hub is to be

considered as part of the mix

in the 2021/31Long Term Plan

(LTP).

‘‘We’ve done asignificant

amount of consultation with

the community starting with

last year’s annual plan.

‘‘We had an onsite meeting

with morethan 80 residents

attending to express their

concernsand, since then,

we’vehad some workshops.’’

Athree­dimensional model

was created to give an idea

what thehub might look like.

‘‘We invited the residentsto

make submissions to the Long

Term Plan and we’ve had

about18. We’reworking

through those submissions to

bringareport back to council,’’

Mr Brownsays.

‘‘Themajority of the

feedback from the consultation

has beeninsupportofthe

initiative, but ultimatelyit

comesback to the resource

consent,and the residents will

be consulted with again.’’

Should councillors give the

‘‘green light’’ to thecommunity

hub in the finalLTP, it will

allowcouncilstaff to get on

with aresource consentfor a

change in land use.

The formerresidential redzone

site has beendesignated

‘‘rural activity’’, which means a

resourceconsent is required

‘‘to ensure what we do is of

benefit to the community’’, Mr

Brownsays.

The Spotswood Hall near Cheviot will

host anew country market over the

All profits from stall fees will go

Since the 2016 earthquake it has been

given some care, including removing the

hardboard around the lower part of the

interior to reveal attractive old

panelling.

This has been given anew lease of life

by agroup of volunteers from the

Spotswood community.

The market will showcase the creative

talents of local artisans.

It will be held every three weeks

starting from Sunday, June 6, and ending

on September 19.

Organiser Janine Sundberg says

and there should be agood mix of quality

Empathy and respect ... The residents of Adriel are embraced by the Spark of Life

programme, which focuses on the quality of the connection between carers and

residents, and their families.

Adriel keeps residents

happy and engaged

Aunique little home in Amberley is

providing holistic care for those

suffering from memory loss.

Adriel House and Rest Home is a

Spark of Life Centre of Excellence,

the only one in New Zealand to hold

the honour.

Owner Mischeal McCormick says it

is the home’s point of difference from

other facilities providing dementia

care.

The focus of the programme is on

the quality of the connection between

carers and residents, and their

families. It also fosters kindness,

compassion, empathy, and respect.

Mischeal says this leads to residents

talking about things they have done in

days gone by, which in turn makes

them happy and feel good about

themselves.

‘‘Everyone has to be trained, and

learn the programme, and then it has

to be put into practice. It is ahuge

commitment, but worth it because we

care,’’ Mischeal says.

On­site training is ongoing for all

staff, with scheduled learning and

fortnightly education from Jane

Verity, the founder and chief

executive officer of Dementia Care

International.

This helps staff to embrace and

implement the philosophy of Spark of

Life in their everyday work.

The home has just completed avery

successful external audit, with

continuous improvements achieved in

its engagement with its community

and in the activities provided to

residents.

Mischeal says this is an excellent

achievement.

She says the home regularly engages

with its community through organised

outings and activities, fairs and

themed days. It also encourages

anyone to come to the home and chat

with residents, or take them out for a

visit.

Mischeal says the home also offers

daycare for residents to give carers

some respite, and is happy to hear

from people looking for ahome­awayfrom­home

for their family members.

‘‘We are always there to support our

local community and people with

advice and education,’’ she says.

NORTH CANTERBURY YOUTH FUTURES CAREERS EXPO

18 The North Canterbury News, May 13, 2021

Careers expo open to people of all ages

By DAVID HILL

Next week’s careers expo

provides an opportunity for all

ages to explore what is

possible.

Rangiora High School

associate principal Paul

Donnelly says the North

Canterbury Youth Futures

careers expo is open to all ages

and allows parents to explore

the opportunities with their

children.

The expo will be held at

Rangiora High School next

Wednesday from 4pm to 8pm

and is open to anyone aged 11

and over.

‘‘The magic of this evening is

that it’s not just for 11­year­olds

through to age 24. The same

message is for those who are a

lot older,’’ Mr Donnelly says.

‘‘If it gives those in the older

age range the same

opportunities and inspiration,

then it’s agood thing and that’s

why we wanted to make it a

family expo.’’

Holding the careers expo in

the evening allowed young

people to attend the event with

their parents and tended to

lead to more meaningful

interactions with employers

and training providers.

In contrast, there was a

tendency for young people to

congregate around the free

pens and lollies when attending

the bigger careers expo in

Christchurch.

The experience of the first

expo in 2019 also found that

many parents were inspired by

the possibilities available to

them, as well as their children,

Mr Donnelly says.

‘‘It’s an opportunity to offer

hope to our students and to

those who are unemployed or

looking for achange that there

are possibilities that people

can develop for themselves.

‘‘Our working lives are fairly

dynamic,’’ he says.

‘‘We may start off in one

career and finish up in another,

so we have to develop those

inner qualities and dispositions

to adapt to change.’’

Mr Donnelly says he cannot

say enough about the support of

the Ministry of Social

Development and Connected.

govt.nz in making the careers

expo possible.

The Ministry of Education,

ComCol North Canterbury, the

Waimakariri District Council,

Enterprise North Canterbury

and local schools have all

played apart in pulling the

careers expo together, he

says.

‘‘They came to us and it’s

been acollaborative process.

We are all wanting to do the

best for the youth in North

Canterbury.

‘‘We’ve got the ideal venue

here, but education has to be

way beyond the school and

that’s why it (the expo) has to be

acommunity thing.’’

The expo will highlight the

possibilities available in North

Canterbury, he says.

‘‘When employers employ

local people need to have the

they enrich the province and

contribute to the economic

they become part of the life of

‘‘But we also acknowledge

that our young people will work

outside our community and will

responsibility to prepare them

for the world, for the future and

the opportunities in front of

them.’’

She had thought clinical

to get into, untilarecent

conversation withone of her

psychology lecturers.

‘‘He saiditwas really

competitive as it is amasters

16 students ayear,soyou

‘‘But he said it was more

important to have experience

of volunteering in the

Given her volunteer work,

the prospect of getting into

clinical psychology no longer

seems remote.

‘‘Evenifsomethingseems

have the confidence to go and

How doIknow ifIneed an

eye test?

Whether you have digital eye

strain, are experiencing blurred or

changing vision, have headaches

assessment and management

for aprogressive eye disorder,

it’s important that you get your

eyes checked.

How often should Iget an

eye test?

For most people, itisadvisable to

have an eye test every two years,

but it’s best toattend earlier

if any eye problems occur or if

advised by your optometrist.

How long does an eye test take?

It depends on the patient, but

we recommend allowing at least

30 minutes. Your optometrist will

determine what clinical tests are

needed to provide the correct

information for new spectacles

or contact lenses; if necessary,

they might refer the patient for

amedical opinion.

NEWS

The North Canterbury News, May 13, 2021

Regenerating bush hailed as an inspiration

The restoration and

regeneration of Tiromoana

Bush is an inspiration and sets

afine example for biodiversity

restoration throughout the

Hurunui District, Dr David

Norton says.

Dr Norton, aprofessor with

the University of Canterbury’s

forestry school, wrote the

original Tiromoana Bush

Restoration Management Plan

in 2004.

He provides ongoing advice

on the restoration project to

Transwaste Canterbury, which

owns Tiromoana Bush.

Dr Norton says Tiromoana

Bush, at 407 hectares, is larger

than all the public conservation

land combined within the

51,000­hectare Motunau

Ecological District, comprising

all the coastal hill country

between the Hurunui, Waikari,

Omihi and Waipara rivers, and

the coast.

While heavily affected by

human settlement, there are

still many key biodiversity

values in the coastal hill

country of North Canterbury,

he says, which is why

conservation work is so

important and rewarding.

Remnant patches of

podocarp, black beech and

coastal forests, and areas of

regenerating bush, especially

kanuka, can be found

throughout the Motunau

Ecological District, he says.

‘‘There are also unusual

plants such as the southern

rata, karaka, McCaskills hebe,

limestone wheatgrass and

native mistletoes.

‘‘The range of indigenous

fauna is equally inspiring, with

spotless crake, falcon, tomtit,

kereru, tui, Canterbury gecko

and skinks all thriving in

remnant forests and shrubland

in North Canterbury.’’

Motunau Island is the jewel

in the conservation crown, he

says.

It is akey seabird breeding

site for white­flippered

penguins, fairy prions, whitefaced

storm petrels and sooty

shearwaters.

Professor Norton says

ensuring the survival of all

these native species requires

restoring significant corridors

of native forest and shrubland

to provide asafe habitat.

Predator control is also

essential.

Tiromoana Bush, at the

southern end of the Motunau

Ecological District, provides

essential habitat for native

animals and plants, he says.

‘‘Birds, in particular, require

both shelter and food, and an

environment safe from

predators to thrive.

‘‘By actively managing

Tiromoana Bush with

restoration plantings that

provide food sources and

nesting sites and predator

control, native species are

returning.

‘‘From Tiromoana Bush,

birds can fly north to other

areas of regenerating bush

along the Mt Cass ridge and,

more widely, in the coastal hill

country, spreading seeds as

they go, which enables further

regeneration,’’ he says.

The Tiromoana Bush project

provides inspiration for other

conservation projects in the

area, by being open to the

public, where they can view the

different approaches to

conservation management

being applied.

Interesting sights ... Southern rata is among ahost of rare and unusual plants that can be found in the

Motunau Ecological District.

The Hurunui Biodiversity

Trust, agroup of landowners

and others who share an

interest in conserving and

enhancing natural and

indigenous biodiversity in the

district, host regular talks with

guest speakers. Trust members

also arrange visits to farms and

locations where conservation

projects are under way.

“It’s an indescribable feeling to know that your child can hear you”

When Renee Cain learned her son

was born profoundly deaf she was in

shock. It was 2016, and little Jackson

was only days old when he was given

a hearing test that all new babies

receive, but his results weren’t what

they’d hoped for.

Renee says it took quite a while for

the news to sink in, and it was heartwrenching

when it did.

“We tried hearing aids and we

thought he could hear things, like

doors banging, but they weren’t

working at all,” says Renee, who lives

in Rangiora.

With a lot of support and information,

Renee decided that cochlear implants

were the right option for Jackson and

their family. A cochlear implant is a

surgically-implanted electronic device

that restores hearing for those with

profound hearing loss.

At six-months-old

Jackson underwent

surgery to have the

implants fitted.

The surgery was

arranged by

the Southern

Cochlear

Implant

Programme

(SCIP) in

Christchurch.

Renee

remembers when

her little boy could

finally hear her voice.

“His face lit up and

he had a big smile when I

spoke. It brought tears to my eyes,”

she says.

“It’s an indescribable

you. When he heard

sounds for the first

time he had a look

of amazement on

his face.”

Jackson, now

four, will start

at Southbrook

School in

Rangiora later this

year.

“I never knew about

cochlear implants

until I was in this

situation,” says Renee.

Following a speaker from SCIP coming

to talk to members the Rangiora Lions

Club decided to nominate SCIP as the

cause for the Ashley River Ramble

2021.

This is the 5th year of the Ramble,

with previous recipients including Koru

Care, Diabetes NZ and the Ashley-

Rakahuri Rivercare group. The event

evolved out of the Lions Club Rangiora

- Kaiapoi Fun Run, and provides a

relaxed family friendly event with great

scenery of the river which is home to

“It’s amazing what technology can do.”

Established in 2003, SCIP is one of

two cochlear implant providers in

New Zealand.

The not-for-profit organisation

currently provides care to more than

950 adults and children throughout

the South Island and as far north as

Taupo. Its offices in Christchurch

and Wellington are complimented by

regular visiting clinics throughout the

catchment area.

SCIP performs all cochlear implant

assessments, arranges surgery,

activates the cochlear implant,

administers adjustments and provides

post-implant rehabilitation services.

“Every time I go to the Ashley-

We are so lucky to have this national

treasure in our backyard, so easily

She is delighted that the funds raised

Penrose wins national

Formula Ford title

By LINDSAY KERR

NorthCanterbury’s James Penrose

wrotehis own chapter in New Zealand

motorsporthistory at Ruapuna Raceway

recently,winning the nationalFormula

Ford championship.

On the same day, he earned atripto

race in England.

National success for the former

Rangiora High School student followed

his win the SouthIsland Formula Ford

championship, during which he rewrote

the recordbooksbywinning all 17 races

that made up the season.

His national championship crown

came down to the lastraceinaseason

where, for the mostpart,hehad trailed

AucklandteenagerMatt McCutcheon.

On homesoil, Penrose, formerly of

NorthLoburn, proved unbeatable. He

made the most of McCutcheon’s poor

qualifying performance and grabbed the

lead after the firstrace.

In the final race, McCutcheongot

aheadtwice,but Penrose summoned all

his local knowledge of the 3.33km track

and squeezed his way back into the lead.

The day also celebrated 50 yearsof

Formula Ford racing in New Zealand.

Therewere 66 cars in the worldwide

categoryinvolving single­seater race

cars powered by 1600ccFord engines.

Five of the driverswere five former

champions, which included the 1990

championship winner,Rangiora’s Paul

Larsen.

It was awinner­take­all 18­lap race for

the 26 fastest racers.

Penrose survived the attention of his

closest rivals to bag the biggest prizein

New Zealand motorsport for many

years.

It included entry intothe British50th

anniversary Formula Ford meeting at

the BrandsHatch circuit,including a

visit to the McLaren Formula 1factory.

‘‘The English tripisamagnificent

bonus, but winning the title was the aim

of the season, and came as agreatrelief

for the team after just falling short last

year,’’hesaid.

‘‘Itwas so great to do this on my home

track in front of friends and family. I

really can’tthank my Dad enough, he

was always there, and had thecar set up

so well.’’

Thisseason’s victoriesfor Penrose

Culverden shows good form

Culverden Bopened the

Hurunui netball season with a

strong game, beating Glenmark

B34­12 during the Culverden

Club Day.

The defensive combination of

Sara Black and Bryar Enerson

provided agood platform for

Culverden to dominate.

The game started out close,

with Culverden leading 8­7

going into the first quarter

break.

As the game progressed,

Culverden Btightened its lines

down the court into the

shooting circle, where goal

attack Elise Johns displayed

accurate shooting to grow

Culverden’s lead. It went into

the half and three­quarter

breaks up 17­12 and 27­15

respectively.

Trees agood option for farm diversification

By DAVID HILL

Henry Pinckney would like to

see more sheep and beef

farmers consider adding trees

to their operation.

The Waiau farmer had aPost

Quake Farming Project study

completed on his family’s farm,

which confirmed the benefits of

integrating forestry with

farming.

‘‘I would recommend that

farmers look into it and have an

open mind to see if it suits

them,’’ Mr Pinckney says.

‘‘There’s no harm in looking

showed otherfarmers around his

quake­damagedfarm early in 2019.

❛By plantingof

—Henry Pinckney

into different land uses.

‘‘I think there is apositive

future for it and Iwould like to

see more sheep and beef

farmers utilise trees, rather

than selling out to large­scale

forestry interests.

‘‘It provides diversity to farm

businesses and has the

potential to add strength to

rural communities.’’

Forestry also helps farmers

to achieve regulatory

compliance through the

destocking of hard­to­fence atrisk

waterways and wetlands.

The Gates,a1430­hectare

property near Waiau, has been

farmed by Henry and Olivia

Pinckney since 2012.

Back then, there was about 65

hectares in trees. At that time,

farm forestry was not a

preferred land use option for

Mr Pinckney.

‘‘But with the right advice

and observing the issues that

some of the harder land had

with weeds, we realised that

trees had aplace and we

decided to stick with it.

‘‘By planting different

species in different aspects you

can spread your risk, and with

the carbon credits there’s an

income which makes it more

viable.’’

The farm suffered extensive

damage in the 2016 North

Canterbury earthquake,

leaving pockets of land with

increased risk of erosion.

The Post Quake Farming

Project chose integrated

farming and forestry as an area

of focus as it sought to assist

farmers in finding solutions for

earning an income from land no

longer suitable for grazing.

‘‘We had quite abit of

damage. It all seems like a

distant memory now. We are

rebuilding the house at the

moment and some of the land

will never be the same again.’’

The Pinckneys now have

300ha in native bush and mixed

species scrub, and afurther

300ha in exotic plantation.

They plan to use One Billion

Trees funding to plant afurther

115ha, with amix of natives and

PHOTO: SUPPLIED

exotic trees, including planting

cypress trees on erosion­prone

land.

Selective logging would be

used, where the trees would be

taken out log by log to avoid

erosion, Henry says.

By retiring erosion or weedprone

land into forestry, it

allowed farmers to focus their

efforts on managing the better

land.

The Pinckneys continue to

farm on nearly 830ha of their

property, with sheep and beef

cattle.

Venture intofarm forestry ... Award­winningfarm forester Alistair Malcolm in his impressive

7­year­old block of native trees. Afield­daywill be held on his property on May 27. PHOTO:SUPPLIED

Farm forestry venture

wins prestigious award

Alistair Malcolm has alwaysbeen good at

growing plants.

That is why he was awarded an MBE for

services to horticulture, and became the

Canterbury director withinthe New

Zealand Fruitgrowers Federation for

many years.

So, whenheand his wife, Jenny,moved

into farm forestry, it was no surprise that

theirGlenmark property, Selkirk,won the

Husqvarna South Island Farm Foresterof

the YearAward for 2021.

Alistair’sinterest in trees was fanned by

afarm forestry correspondence coursehe

did in the 1980s.

That knowledge was expanded by 30

yearsasanorchardistand fruit­tree

nurseryman in theRedwoodand Belfast

areasofChristchurch.

In 2012, the Malcolms bought their

63­hectareNorth Canterbury property.

When theypurchased Selkirk,itwas a

standard summer­dry pastoral hill country

farm with few trees.

Sincethen, 42ha has beenplanted with

arange of species, includingcypresses,

redwoods, cedars, poplars and eucalypts,

each of which has special uses and values.

Arguably, the most notable absentee on

his property is radiata pine.

“I have astronginterest in growing

eucalypts with ground­durable wood,” says

Alistair, “andIamfortunate to be able to

make use of advice from someofour

members, plusrecent research results, to

get thebestspeciesand genetics.”

The North Canterbury branch of the

New Zealand FarmForestry Association is

organisingafield­daytobeheld at Selkirk

on Thursday,May 27.

“Of particular interest will be a1.5ha

block of indigenous treesplantedin

2013­14,” branch chairman GaryFleming

says.

“This is an excellent example of

successful native establishment in a

relatively harsh environment.”

Attendees will also closely follow how

Alistair hasmade full use of the Emissions

Trading Scheme (ETS),with nearly all his

trees registeredfor carbon credit

accumulation.

The field­day will start at 10.15am, with

attendees gathering at the property

entrance 9km up Glenmark DriveRoad,

which beginsinWaipara just westofthe

railway crossing and the State Highway

1/SH7 junction. Everyone will be welcome.

Two North Canterbury dog

triallists were surprisedto

win North Island titles last

month.

GrantPlaisted, of

Waikari, and Mike “Bones”

Evans, of Greta Valley,

have been travellingupto

the North Island sheep dog

championships together

for years,but have never

brought back the

silverware, untilnow.

The straight hunt final

was won by Mr Plaisted

and his dog Coke,while Mr

Evansand his dog Dawn

won the short head and

yard.

‘‘I’ve been competing for

along time, and Bones and

Iare from‘sister clubs’

(Waikariand Omihi), so we

always go up together,’’ Mr

Plaisted says.

‘‘Three yearsago the two

of us wenttothe North

Island, in Taranaki, and we

discussed ‘if we wereever

goingtoget intoone those

run­offs’,’’ Mr Evans says.

‘‘That year we didn’teven

get on the board.’’

WhileMrPlaisted won a

Canterbury huntaway title

last yearwith Coke, and

has been placedinthe

SouthIsland

championships, Mr Evans

has neverwon amajor title

in 52 yearsofcompeting.

‘‘I hadtomake aspeech

and Isaid ‘this is like the

Academy Awards, but this

one is hardertowin',’’ Mr

Evanssays.

‘‘I’mstill pinching

myself. Idon’tknow how I

managed to pullitoff. This

is abucket­list moment.

You do this maybe once in

alifetime if you’relucky.’’

Mr Evans, the former

publican of the Greta

Valley Tavern, says

retirementhas allowed

him more time to work

with his dogs.

Mr Evans bought Dawn

afterher owner,his good

friend and fellow dog

triallist Gary Woods,of

Leithfield, near Amberley,

died unexpectedly in 2017.

‘‘They say you can’t teach

an old dog new tricks, but I

didn’t know Gary’s calls, so

Ihad to startfrom scratch

with Dawn.’’

Dog trialling ran in Mr

Evan’s bloodasboth his

father and grandfather

were dog triallists,and his

father’s dog Haig was

immortalised as the dog in

the statue at the Church of

Good Shepherd at Lake

Winning combination ... Grant Plaisted, of Waikari, and

Tekapo.

‘‘It's not justmeand

Dawn that have done this

thing(winning the title), it’s

my wife, the neighbours

feeding the pups, and

friends who have helped

out,’’ Mr Evans says.

Mr Plaisted first got into

dog trials as ayoungster,

afterbeing exposed to it at

fielddays run by rugby

clubsand schools to raise

funds.

‘‘I talked the old man

into givingmeadog and

I’ve beendoing it ever

since, and I’vebeen

competing at the top level

for 40 years.’’

Afterlivinginthe North

Island for 40 years,Mr

Plaisted returned to the

SouthIsland to manage

sheepand beeffarms at

Lees Valley, near Oxford,

and DoubleHill at Scargill,

near Waikari,before

retiring.

‘‘I’mmeant to be

relaxing, but Idoquite abit

of casual farmwork which

keepsthe dogs busy.

‘‘It’s importanttokeep

the dogsinwork. They say

the bestdog at home is

alwaysthe best dog at

trials. Igive them a10km

run eachevening to keep

them fit.’’

Both triallists will be

liningupinnext week’s

South Island and New

Zealand championships at

Gore, withMrEvans and

Dawn competinginthe

short head and yard, and in

the longpull, whileMr

Plaisted has qualified two

dogs, Coke and Herb, in

Goals hard to come by in clashes

HOCKEY

Many Rangiora Hockey Club

teams foundgoals hard to

come by in aweekend that

included the first games of

Kiwi and Mini Sticks hockey

(years3/4 and 5/6).

Both the Division 1men’s

and women’s teams went

without agoal againstCarlton

Redcliffs,asdid Rangiora

Korimako in its Sunday Super

League Premiershipwomen’s

game against Hornby,along

with three of the fourPlatinum

teams.

In amajor form turnaround,

even theRangioraHurunui

Hares couldn’t findthe back of

the net, going down 5­0 against

Malvern —ateam it beat

comfortably aweek before.

In contrast, goals were not in

short supplyinthe inter­club

clash between the Colts and

Oddfellows forthe Sunday

Super League Men’s

Championships.

The favoured Colts went two

goals ahead early but then took

its foot off the gas,and withthe

Roberts brothers Rik and Mike

on fire for the Oddfellows, the

oppositionwas able to clawits

way back into the game and

eventually triumph 4­3.

Itwas amixed bag for

Rangiora teams in the first

round of Kiwi and Mini Sticks.

With the first couple of weeks

set for gradinggames,itwill

take awhilefor teamstosettle

into competition against

similarly skilledopposition,

which often resultsinbig

Rangiora’s Mini Sticksteams

had comfortable wins in their

Kaiapoi’sbig forwards in dominant form

RUGBY

By LINDSAY KERR, PETER WILLIAMS

and DAYLE SUTHERLAND

Glenmark­Cheviot faces two

crucial weeks if it is to qualify

for the next round of the

combined country rugby

competition after going down to

Kaiapoi 20­13 on Saturday.

It was Glenmark­Cheviot’s

first loss in nearly three years.

Meanwhile, Saracens

strengthened its position at the

top of the table, beating

Hurunui. However, the side has

to contend with Glenmark­

Cheviot and Oxford before the

job is done.

Dominant display

Kaiapoi scored first against

Glenmark­Cheviot and

appeared to be holding the

upper hand throughout,

especially at scrum time.

Kaiapoi lock Connor Smith

had an outstanding match in all

aspects of the game, and the

rest of the forward pack was not

far behind him.

The most notable feature in

the win was the superior

scrummaging effort by Kaiapoi.

The depth of Kaiapoi’s frontrow

stocks was asalient factor

here.

All five front rowers used in

the match showed their ability.

In particular, Luka Tootoo

proved that not only is he a

powerful runner with the ball

in hand, but also astrong

scrummager.

When Glenmark­Cheviot lost

two of its front rowers,

Kaiapoi’s greater depth in the

front row really came to the

fore.

From that point, aKaiapoi

unit that had always had the

upper hand at scrum time

became completely dominant,

and spectators were treated to

the rare sight of aGlenmark­

Cheviot scrum being

completely demolished on

virtually every occasion.

This visibly raised the spirits

of the Kaiapoi side, especially

after Glenmark­Cheviot closed

to 13­17 in the last quarter.

In the Kaiapoi backline, its

two try scorers both impressed.

On the left wing, Reuben

Tiweka showed blistering

speed as well as areal

determination when the tryline

was in sight, while centre

Securing possession... Oxford standout player JesseHouston securesclean lineout ballinOxford’s senior rugby match against Ashley.

Robert Dods­Samson always

looked dangerous.

Five­eighth Taine Jacobs­

Lawson displayed his growing

maturity, directing play

expertly from the pivot

position, as well as adding two

penalties and two conversions

from his trusty boot.

Scoreboard: Kaiapoi 20

(Reuben Tiweka, Robert Dods­

Samson tries, Tame Jacobs­

Lawson 2penalties, 2

conversions) beat Glenmark­

Cheviot 13 (Richard Taylor a

try, Brook Retallick 1

conversion, 2penalties).

Unbeaten run

Saracens kept its unbeaten

record intact with a33­12 away

victory against Hurunui.

True to form, Hurunui

remained in the hunt until the

second half, only for Saracens

to pull away in the last quarter.

With ahalf time score of 12­7,

Hurunui’s fate was sealed after

Brett Hancox scored askilful

individual try and the

advantage for Saracens went

out to 19­7.

Saracens went on to score two

more tries before Hurunui

scored its second try late in the

game.

The trusty boot of Ricky Allin

again helped Saracens’ cause.

Scoreboard: Saracens 33

(Brett Hancox 2, Matt Freeman,

John Wakelin, Josh Maynard

tries. Ricky Allin, 4

conversions) beat Hurunui 12.

Emphatic win

Oxford emerged from its

traditional early­season

slumber with an emphatic 37­5

against Ashley.

Played at Ashley’s Loburn

Domain, the home side

struggled to get possession and

territory for much of the game.

Oxford attacked from the

start and scored the first of its

six tries after five minutes,

when No. 8Jesse Houston

crashed over.

The Oxford attack was

relentless, but astiff Ashley

defence kept the side out until

the strike of half time, when

centre Jesse Bowring set

Tasman Scott up for his first try.

Houston, who had astellar

game for Oxford, scored his

second try 10 minutes into the

second spell.

Ashley, try as it did, could not

gain any momentum with the

scraps its players were forced

to live on, while Oxford

continued to play with

confidence.

As time ran out, Oxford

halfback Matt Roberts scuttled

around amaul to score before

Houston was again on hand to

score after arolling maul

rumbled him over the line.

Oxford’s last try came after

Scott rubbed the Ashley

wounds when he scampered

60m downfield to score.

Ashley deservedly had the

last rights when hooker Louis

James was on hand as alast

receiver to score.

Scoreboard: Oxford 37 (Jesse

Houston 3, Tasman Scott 2, Matt

Roberts tries. Angus Mitchell, 2

conversions and apenalty) beat

Ashley 5(Louis James try).

Ohoka on top

Ohoka showed plenty of grit

to head off adetermined

Woodend side 41­16 at

Gladstone Park.

Both sides traded early

penalties, but it was Ohoka

holding the early momentum,

with afurther penalty and atry

to winger George Wiggins.

With Ohoka turning down

several further shots at goal,

the momentum swung in

Woodend’s favour, arising from

PHOTO: LINDSAY KERR

aspirited defensive effort.

After all, it was Club Day and,

with inspiration coming from

visiting members of the 1981

Woodend team, atenacious

comeback emerged with two

penalties and aconverted try to

Deride Sarin, which had

Woodend up 16­11 at the break.

In the second half, Ohoka ran

in four unanswered tries.

Centre Albin O’Loughlin ran

strongly, with wing James Marr

benefiting with abrace of tries.

Ohoka’s replacement prop,

Tobias Pulley, created muchneeded

go­forward ball.

Woodend’s Mike Ryes and

Daniel Devlin were industrious

at the breakdown, while winger

Conner Sarin always looked for

opportunities. Centre Deride

Sarin collected 16 points for his

earnest efforts.

Scoreboard: Ohoka 41 (James

Marr 2tries George Wiggin,

Tom Taylor, Sam Powell tries,

Scott Allin 2penalties, Ethan

McDuff, 2penalties, 2

conversions) beat Woodend 16

(Deride Sarin 1try, 1

Compass FM set to

mark anniversary

NEWS

The North Canterbury News, May 13, 2021

By DAVID HILL

Compass FM has been broadcasting to

homesacross North Canterburyfor the

past decade.

The communityradio station will next

monthcelebrate 10 years of broadcasting

across the Waimakariri, Hurunui,

Kaikouradistricts and beyond from its

Rangiora base.

The first live broadcast was on Queen’s

BirthdayWeekend 2011.

‘‘We wanttolaud our success withthe

localcommunity because that’s what we

are here for,’’ station manager Kerry

Treymane says.‘‘Weare looking to make

some noise and to lookforward to ensure

we can grow on the strength of whathas

been built over the last 10 years.’’

The North CanterburyRadio Charitable

Trustwas established in 2008,when

station founderOwen Paterson formeda

boardoftrustees and appliedtothe

Ministry of Cultureand Heritage for anoncommercial

radio station licence.

The station’s first manager was Mike Le

Petit, who joined in 2010 as aconsultant

and servedasstation manageruntil

October 2015, before returning in late 2019

to assist as production engineer.

Mr Treymane became station manager

in September 2019, two months after

becoming the breakfast host.Hehas

becomeafamiliar voiceonthe airwaves.

Other familiar voices include weekday

announcersJohn Cameronand Bruce

John, and content manager Steph

McDonald.

Last year, the station had an overhaulof

its main studiodesk andcomputersystems

to bring it into the 21st century.

‘‘Radio is like atime machine which

evokesmemories and emotionswhen you

hear afamiliar song,’’ Mr Treymane says.

‘‘It’sajoy to work at aradio station

where it’sall about community. I’ve

workedatthe networks where it’s all about

revenue. We are anon­profit charitable

trust that encourages all members of the

community to comeand experience what

Compass is all about.’’

Compass FM supportslocal school

gateway programmes,has run several

introductory courses to broadcasting,and

has supported students to go on to the New

Zealand SchoolofBroadcasting at the Ara

Institute of Canterbury.

The successofthe radio station is thanks

to thesupport of MainPower, McAlpines

Mitre10Mega and the wider community.

Asocial function with local dignitaries

and past boardmembers is planned for

June 11, while apublicopen day will be

held at the station on Saturday, June 12.

Well protected ... The site of last January’s fire is now covered, encapsulating the

site until it can be remediated.

Fire site covered with plastic

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The charred remnants of ahuge tyre

fire at Racecourse Road, Amberley,

have been covered. Environment

Canterbury finished covering the site

with awaterproof cover last Friday.

Alarge fire broke out at the site on

January 29.

The regional council says the

capping process was delayed because

of site preparation works, including

contouring the site. This had allowed

extra material to be removed that

could have been acontamination risk.

The site will be regularly monitored

and the cap will remain in place until

the site can be fully remediated.

reported to the police as lost in North

Canterbury:

Good Street Update

Feedback on aConcept Plan for anupgrade to the

Good Street laneway closed on Sunday.

The Plan proposed araised timber deck, feature

wall, grass and greenery, lighting, new paving,

street furniture and more, and feedback from

residents indicated that they thought this was

on the right track.

People told us they were keen to see events,

small gigs, markets and food vendors inthe area,

and were positive about the addition of raised

planters toadd more greenery to the laneway.

Also suggested were bike stands, awater feature,

shade, more seating and tables.

Feedback will be included in areport to the Council

on 1June. Once they approve the final plan, staff

will work with nearby businesses on asuitable

timeframe for work tobegin.

Rangiora Racecourse Hearing to Continue

with TwoCommissioners

The hearing for the Taggart Earthmoving

Ltd Rangiora Racecourse resource consent

application was adjourned last week as it was

discovered there was aconflict of interest with

one commissioner.

The commissioners are considering aresource

application from Taggart Earthmoving Ltd who

has applied to Environment Canterbury (ECan) and

Waimakariri District Council (WDC) for consents

to establish, maintain and operate an aggregate

quarry located at the Rangiora Racecourse, 309

West Belt, Rangiora.

In March Paul Rogers, Reginald Proffit and John

Iseli were appointed as commissioners.

However, at the start of the hearing commissioner

Mr Proffit declared aconflict aer recognising that

one of the experts was engaged by afirm that he

is also engaged with.

The panel considered this issue by way of abrief

adjournment and ultimately decided that Mr Proffit

should step down from decision making. The

remaining panel members also determined they

had sufficient expertise and experience to carry on

with the hearing.

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 of

conditions. 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.
