In theyearsfollowing the sale,

it hadseveralowners and

‘‘Itwas only aboutthreeyears

‘‘The DeepFreeze blokes

and drove them around New

whenitwas time to go home.’’

As soon as Mike set eyes on the

‘‘beautiful’’ car, he knew he had

to haveit. It was alsoadmired by

the lad nextdoor,Walter Kinley,

Millions in budget for Lineside Rd

By DAVID HILL

Safety improvements are in the pipeline

for Rangiora’s Lineside Road.

Abudget of $16.64 million was set

aside in the draft 2021/31 Canterbury

Regional Land Transport Plan earlier

this year for Lineside Road, which

provides the State Highway 71 link

between Rangiora and SH1.

Aspokesperson for the New Zealand

Transport Agency’s ‘‘Road to Zero’’

safety team says, while it is still subject

to approval as part of the National Land

Transport and Regional Land Transport

planning processes, the proposed

project is centred around road safety.

‘‘The project is asafety system

transformation project, which means it

could include median barriers, side

barriers, safer intersections, and turnaround

points, to reduce the seriousness

of outcomes when crashes occur.’’

The project is still at the feasibility

stage and is scheduled to be completed

early next year.

Other Waimakariri projects in the

draft 2021/31 Canterbury Regional Land

Transport Plan include $11m towards

the proposed upgrade of Skew Bridge at

Silverstream, Kaiapoi, and $6.4m for

extra scoping work on State Highway 1

from the Ashley River to Belfast.

The Woodend Bypass is included as an

‘‘on the horizon’’ project, with the draft

plan noting that traffic volumes are

expected to double over the next 30

years because of arise in long­distance

traffic such as freight vehicles, and

residential developments.

Afour­lane bypass is considered the

best option to improve capacity and

efficiency of traffic flow, improve road

safety, accessibility and liveability of

Woodend residents, and improve

connectivity for residents and

businesses in Woodend, Pegasus,

Kaiapoi and other local communities.

Waimakariri District Council chief

executive Jim Harland says the council

will continue to push for the Woodend

Bypass to move up the priority list.

‘‘The Woodend Bypass just hasn’t

profiled high enough compared to

projects in other parts of New Zealand,

but traffic flow is increasing so we just

need to keep the agency aware of it.

‘‘The government has allocated $14

billion to the National Land Transport

Fund over the next three years, which is

the highest it’s ever been, but there are

more competing projects and more

roads to be maintained.’’

Safety improvements have been made

around Woodend, with changes to speed

limits and the installation of crossing

signals outside Woodend School.

Further improvements are scheduled to

be announced soon, Mr Harland says.

Residents to help with trees

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Pockets of foresttobeestablishedin

Kaiapoi’s red zonewill get helpfrom a

groupofresidents from Rangiora’s

Charles Upham Retirement Village.

They will join volunteers in spring to

help plantand tend new natives on

Kaiapoi’s east side. Severalresidents

visited the red zone recently,where the

mini forestwill be nurtured.

The plantings are based on the work of

Japanese botanist Akira Miyawaki, who

has planted morethan 1000 forests in

Japan, Malaysia and elsewhere.

He had becomeacar enthusiast over

the years, and set about restoring the

Pontiac to its formerglory.

‘‘Walter Kinley rang me one day and

said he had something to show me,’’

Mike recalls.

Walterhad restored it but

was taken off the lot. Staff had astory

Reuben just had to have the vehicle he

had cruised around in as ayoung fellow.

He went before his dad, had alook, and

bought it for more than $40,000.

New chief ... Jim Harland is enjoying his new role as Waimakariri District Council chief executive.

PHOTO: DAVID HILL

Council culture impresses boss

By DAVID HILL

Jim Harland has enjoyed along and

varied career before taking on his

latest challenge.

The new Waimakariri District

Council chief executive stepped into

Jim Palmer’s shoes on March 31 after a

career in local government, tourism,

the private sector, and more recently

as the New Zealand Transport

Agency’s South Island relationships

director for 10 years.

Mr Harland comes from arural and

urban background. He was born in

Wairoa and spent holidays on the

family farm on the North Island’s east

coast. He moved to New York when he

was 10, living 30km north of

Manhattan.

His family later moved to

Christchurch, where Mr Harland

completed his schooling at

Christchurch Boys’ High School. He

then studied geography and town

planning at university.

After working in tourism and the

private sector, Mr Harland returned to

university to complete amasters

degree in planning.

He worked for the North Shore City

Council as its director of strategy and

policy, and then director of policy and

planning, before joining the Dunedin

City Council in 2000 as chief executive.

After 11 years in Dunedin, Mr

Harland joined the transport agency in

arole that allowed him to establish

relationships with councils throughout

the South Island, including

Waimakariri.

‘‘Because (NZTA) co­invests 52

percent into local roads, we have

strong relationships with councils, and

Isat on the regional transport

committees.

‘‘In terms of councils in the South

Island, I’ve worked with all of them

and Ican say there’s avery committed

workforce and areal commitment to

focus on what’s good for the customer.’’

Mr Harland was particularly

impressed with the culture at the

Waimakariri District Council and the

strength of its relationship with Ngai

Tuahuriri.

‘‘The councillors have all got arole

with portfolios and they rotate the

committee chair roles, so they’re all

engaged and there seems to be good

respect between the councillors.’’

His new role affords plenty of

challenges, with the projected

population growth in the Greater

Christchurch area, an ageing

population in Waimakariri, and the

impacts of climate change.

‘‘Work is being done with our

partners and there’s greater pressure

to avoid natural hazards in the face of

climate change and the need to reduce

our carbon footprint,’’ he says.

Part of the solution is more effective

public transport, safer options for

cycling and walking, and denser

suburbs, he says.

‘‘We have been working closely with

Environment Canterbury and the

Christchurch and Selwyn councils,

with the Christchurch 2050 vision being

worked on at the moment to determine

where that growth will go and the form

it will take.

‘‘So there will be abit of work in this

space and we are working with central

government.’’

Roading initiatives such as the

Woodend Bypass are very much apart

of the mix in managing future growth,

Mr Harland says.

Flyride consentstalls

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The brakeshave been put on developing

aflyride in Hanmer Springs —for now.

The HanmerSprings ThermalPools

and Spa has askedthe Hurunui District

Council for its application for aresource

consent to install and run the flyride to

be suspended until further notice.

It is proposed for the western face of

the Conical Hill Reserve.

Poolsgeneral manager GraemeAbbot

says detailed planning has shown some

poleswill havetobemoved because of

the topography.

‘‘That side of thehill is undulating.

Some of the poles need to be increased

in height, and more pines need to be cut

down than initially thought.’’

This,hesaid, is consideredabig

change whichcame to lightafterthe

consent application was lodged.

‘‘Theinformation on the consent was

not as accurate as we would like, so we

have put it on holduntil we haveall the

detail,’’ he says.

Once all the information is gathered,it

will be taken back to the community and

council officers, before the process

starts again.

Mr Abbot says the pause willnot put

the projectbehind or affectits funding.

The proposed flyride consists of a

cabletracksystem on seven poles. The

ride is providedintrolleyssuspended

from the cable track.The flyride

changes direction at each pole. Thereis

aplatform at the start and finish.

It is being fundedby$2.123m from the

government’s infrastructure funding

scheme and$123,000from the

Provincial GrowthFund.

Trying to overcome the red tape in

order to holditinHagley Park provedtoo

daunting, Mr Duggan said. Bringing the

salute to Rangiora received the support

of the local council and police.

Neighbours will be door­knocked to

make themawareofthe event, with the

salute timed for 3pm. Pamphlets will be

delivered to ensure no­one is taken by

surprise.

The charge in the rounds has been

reducedtoensure the shotsare not too

loud, Mr Duggansays.

There will be 21 roundsfired, withan

extra sevenbeingconsidered.

Enthusiasts will get the chance to take

part by sponsoringaroundfor $100, and

get aonce­in­a­lifetime experience of

The sideline season is with us

We’rewell into autumn and what a

Ivalue how important it is for our

greatthat the new chief executive Peter

Bramley has accepted my invitation to

attend this publicmeeting.

Peterwill update us on progress on

building our seven­day, after­hours

facility, andwill be on hand to answer

questions from those attending.

At my last publicmeetingonhealth,

successfully resulted in acommitment by

the board to provide this community

It’s away of ensuring banking services

The Rangiora Racecourse quarry

The hearing of resourceconsents

before two independent commissioners

on behalf of Environment Canterbury

and the Waimakariri District Council

was adjourned late last Monday.

It followed five days of evidence from

the applicantTaggart Earthmoving Ltd,

and submitters.

Commission chairman Paul Rogers

said on May 11 that the applicanthad 15

The commissioners denied hearing

any further evidence from the applicant,

saying the application had been ‘‘live’’

‘‘Requesting further information

wouldhave the effect of further

‘‘Allparticipants would need to

Whilecounciland hearing costscould

SCHOOL OPEN DAYS

14 North Canterbury News, May 20, 2021

Open evening achance to chat with teachers

By DAVID HILL

Kaiapoi High School is looking

forward to hosting an open

night again.

Principal Bruce Kearney

says it will be good to welcome

prospective parents to the

school on Tuesday next week,

after last year’s open night was

cancelled because of Covid­19.

‘‘It’s awesome to be able to do

the open night again. However,

it was also really nice not doing

them,’’ he says.

‘‘We had our largest cohort of

year 9s ever this year and we

didn’t have the open night, so it

really makes no difference for

us.

‘‘When we thought about it,

we came to the conclusion that

the students have been here for

school productions and other

events, but many of our new

parents would never have

stepped foot on our school

grounds or not been here since

the rebuild, so we are really

doing it for the parents.’’

Mr Kearney said the year 8

parents from contributing

schools were surveyed and

around 70 percent preferred

the event being held in the

evening, rather than during the

day when the school is in

session.

‘‘An open day during the day

is like going to the zoo. You get

to see the school in action, but

our parents wouldn’t get the

chance to engage and talk with

our teachers.’’

The school’s PTA will also be

doing asausage sizzle on the

night, allowing prospective

parents to chat with other

parents about their

experiences.

‘‘High schools are very

different from primary schools.

There is an expectation from

students that their parents drop

them off at the gate and don’t

come in unless you have a

Porsche.

‘‘The open night gives

everybody in the family the

ability to see our school. It’s

probably more for the parents,

if they haven’t been here

before, to see the school where

they are sending their young

people,’’ Mr Kearney says.

The open night is just one

step in the journey to prepare

year 8pupils for their

transition to high school.

The first step was adeputy

principal, two head students

and two year 9pupils visiting

each of the contributing schools

to talk to year 8s about going to

high school.

Later in the year, Mr Kearney

will visit each of the

contributing schools with two

head students for an evening

meeting with parents over

coffee and cake.

‘‘This is an opportunity for

parents to ask all of those curly

questions like bullying, drugs,

uniform, BYOD (bring your own

devices). Everything is on the

table and that’s my favourite

part of the process.

‘‘They key thing with bullying

is if you go to an open night and

someone says ‘there’s no

bullying’, walk away and go to

New facility ... Kaiapoi High School principal Bruce Kearney, right, spoke at the unveiling of the school’s

new gymnasium in 2019. The school has undergone asubstantial rebuild in recent years, with agrowing roll

likely to trigger the second stage of its redevelopment soon.

another school.

‘‘With 953 students you are

going to have some bullying, so

it’s not about the bullying, it’s

how you deal with it.’’

The next stage is Kaiapoi

High School teachers visiting

the contributing schools to talk

to parents, pupils and their

teacher ‘‘to find out how the

student learns’’.

The year 8pupils will then

visit the school for an

experience day before the end

of the school year.

Next year, the new year 9

parents are invited to awine

and cheese evening to meet the

teachers.

This year, arecord 270 year 9

pupils started at Kaiapoi High

School, lifting the school roll

Open-day sessions

sure to be popular

By DAVID HILL

Rangiora High School is looking

forward to hosting families at the

school, after last year’s open days

were cancelled because of Covid­19.

The school will host three days of

open days beginning on Friday, May

27, and continuing the following

Monday and Tuesday.

Deputy principal Scott Wright says

there are normally between 350 and

370 year 9pupils starting at the school

each year, so he expects abusy few

days.

‘‘We will probably get around 320

appointments across the different

time slots and they will probably bring

two, three or four family members.

‘‘We have to do abooking system

because otherwise we would have too

many at once, and we need to allocate

the right number of year 13 guides for

each group.’’

Family groups will be welcomed by

three members of the Transition Lead

Team in the hall, before heading off on

atour around the school with student

guides. ‘‘We invite them back to the

hall for any questions at the end.’’

The guided tours offer prospective

students and their families the chance

to view the classes in action, view

displays of student work, and provide

the opportunity to chat and ask

questions.

While last year’s open days were

cancelled because of Covid­19, Mr

Wright says the feedback from this

year’s year 9students is that they

would have liked the chance to view

the school to ease the transition.

‘‘And it’s always good for parents to

see the school. It’s like putting aface

to names. Alot of parents came here as

students and Ilike meeting them

because my own kids come here too,

and it’s agreat place.’’

Rangiora High School has aroll of

nearly 1700, making it the largest in

North Canterbury.

‘‘The great advantage of being abig

school is you can offer awide range of

subjects and extra curricular

activities, sports and cultural events,’’

Mr Wright says.

‘‘For example, we have 82 students

participating in Show Quest this week,

which is ahuge opportunity, and

whether it’s music, farming, metal

work, canoe polo, or chess club,

there’s always someone here with a

plan to run with it, or we can usually

find someone if there is student

interest in something new.’’

School offers flexible

visiting arrangements

By DAVID HILL

Flexibility is the key as Oxford Area

School goes through student

recruitment.

While the school is not running open

days as such, enquiries from

prospective parents are welcome, acting

principal Sharyn Varcoe says.

‘‘We are not running open days as such

this year, but we have an open invitation

for prospective parents and students to

make abooking to come and view the

school.

‘‘They can come when the school is

operational if that works for them and

chat with our head students or they can

come in after school. We are keeping it

very flexible. We are very conscious

parents are busy people.’’

Being ayear 1­13 school, Oxford Area

School has areal mix when it comes to

prospective students, including new

entrants which can start at any time of

the year, year 8s from contributing

schools, and families who move to the

area, Ms Varcoe says.

‘‘Most of our year 8s at school follow

into year 9, so they already know the

school, but we do have our contributing

schools and there is movement within

the district.

‘‘We are certainly seeing more and

more students starting in year 9with us,

which is really exciting to see.

‘‘We are sitting at 55 year­9 pupils this

year, which is small compared to some

schools, but it’s large for us.

‘‘We had ayear 11 pupil enrol at the

school this year, having moved down

from the North Island,’’ she said.

Around one­third of this year’s year 9s

are new to the school.

Ms Varcoe says the school is enjoying

abusy time, as pupils and staff gear up

for the school production of The Snow

White Variety Show,which will be

performed in the Oxford Town Hall from

May 26 to 29.

Year 1to3pupils recently visited

Orana Park as park of their animal

movement studies, while year 3and year

7/8 girls recently learned self defence.

Other events in coming weeks will

include the school cross country.

The school council is running aPink

Shirt Day tomorrow (Friday) and is

holding aGumboot Day on Friday, May

28.

‘‘It involves the whole school and is

student­run by the school council, so it is

an awesome leadership opportunity,’’

Ms Varcoe says.

The new year 9/10 ‘‘connected

learning’’ programme is also working

well, she says, with agroup of pupils

about to take awater quality field trip.

Pupils on the ‘‘Earth to the Moon’’

connected course will have afield trip

later this term, which will involve an

evening at the school’s observatory.

While English and maths continue to

be taught as normal, the new ‘‘connected

learning’’ courses are centred around

project learning, in which pupils can

follow their passions.

Ramblers step up

to support cause

By SHELLEY TOPP

The SouthernCochlear Implant

Programme hasreceived a$2500 donation

thankstothosewho entered this year’s

AshleyRiver Ramble.

Rangiora’sannual ramble, organised by

the Rangiora LionsClub, was cancelled

with just 12 hours’ noticeearlier thisyear

because of Covid­19 restrictions.

The programme, which provides

cochlear implant technologyand support

to those withsevere or profound hearing

loss, was the nominated charity.

Participants were told the event could

not be rescheduled, and were offered two

options —arefund, or the donation of

their ticket pricetothe programme.

Most chosetodonate,and the Rangiora

Lions Club was able to source extra funds

through aspecialLions Mint grant

provided for Covid­affected events to

make up the $2500 donation.

AshleyRiver Rambleco­ordinator

Kirstyn Barnett saidshe was blown away

by the generosity. “After the

disappointment of the cancellation, our

team was delighted that we couldstill

contribute to such agreatprogramme.

‘‘Itisheartening to live in this

community,wherepeople genuinely care

and want to help others,” she said.

Programmechief executive Neil Heslop

saidthe significant and unexpected

contribution was much appreciated.

“Thecharitable sector has been greatly

impacted by Covid­19, as fundraising

efforts have been impeded by reduced

incomes and cancelled events,’’ he said.

He said the programme was grateful to

those who chose to support it, regardless

of the cancelled fun run.

‘‘The fundsraisedwill helpusto

continue providing cochlear implants to

those in need —reconnectingNew

Zealanders to the world of sound.”

RangioraLionsClub president Tini

Lawry said she was proud of herteam for

achieving the result,despitethe

challenges. “The fact that all these

supporters donatedtheirentry fee was a

signthat we had indeed chosen avery

worthwhile recipient of this annual

event’s proceeds and Rangiora Lions

didn’t hesitate to lookfor ways to make up

for the potential gate takings on the day.”

Creative juices to flow for wearable arts

By ROBYN BRISTOW

It is time for creative minds to

turn attention to the North

Canterbury Wearable Arts

event.

Entrants can let their

imagination run wild for the

show, which will take place at

the Rangiora Town Hall on

Saturday, September 4.

Age is no barrier. Entries are

open to all ages across five

categories, and to anyone who

simply wants to give it ago.

Younger students can go

crazy with agricultural and

farming themes.

More mature students can get

dark and mysterious, with

dreams and nightmares, or

produce something totally

unique for the open category.

Adults can have fun with

geometrics, or see where their

creativity takes them for the

open category.

New for 2021 is acategory for

families —oradult teams —to

shine brightly in the Light it Up

category.

This year marks the start of a

very important partnership for

North Canterbury Wearable

Arts with Mitre 10 MEGA

Rangiora coming on board as

its principal sponsor.

With deep roots in the

community, the Mitre 10 brand

is part of New Zealand’s do­ityourself

DNA, and what better

place to visit to help generate

creative ideas and get projectbased

advice?

Oxford Area School, which is

organising the event, believes

Imagination runs wild ... A

mesmerising costume.

the partnership with Mitre 10

MEGA will give agiant boost to

the profile of the North

Canterbury Wearable Arts

event.

Those looking for inspiration

can nip on down to the store

and view the 2019 Supreme

Adults winning costume, which

will be on display next week.

Show organisers are also

grateful for its long­term

partnership with the Oxford

Farmers Market, which

continues this year.

Once again, the market is

sponsoring the main prize of

flights and tickets to the World

of Wearable Arts in Wellington

Ideas galore ... The event allows

creativity to run rampant.

for the Supreme Adult and

Supreme Student winners.

Following its initial success

in Oxford, the show transferred

in 2019 to the Rangiora Town

Hall to provide extra seating

capacity and more spacious

facilities.

The event continues to

provide asupportive

environment and an amazing

opportunity to showcase local

creativity.

Organisers say the event

continues to grow, thanks to the

support it receives and the

entrants from throughout the

region seeking to show off their

creations.

Painted bliss ... An elaborate creation.

Buoyant ... Oxford businesses are said to be ticking along nicely, with weekends especially busy.

Weekends busy in

buoyant Oxford

By DAVID HILL

Oxford is abusy littletown,says OxfordbasedWaimakaririDistrict

councillor

WendyDoody.

She saysrecent weeks have seenmany

visitors venture out to the town, especially

during the weekends.

‘‘Sundaysare verybusy.Everybody

seemstobecomingout of the woodwork.

People like to come up and go and have

something to eat and drinkand shop

around, whichissuper. The businesses

seem to be ticking along nicely and the

food ones are doingwell.’’

Traffic volumes have created some

concernsaround speed and pedestrian

safety, especially for children crossing

Main Street on their way to school.

The Waimakariri District Council has

received asubmissionfrom alocal group

calling for reduced speed limits.

‘‘It’s not an easy thingtodobecause

there’s aprocesstowork through, but it’s

something the council needs to look at,’’Cr

Doodysays.

To help the process, Cr Doody hasspent

afew mornings on Main Streettoobserve

the traffic and check on the safety of

children walking to school.

‘‘I asked the childrenifthey were

comfortablecrossing the road and they

were,but oneofthe fathers did say there

was aproblem withsunstrike, whichcan

be really serious,’’ she says.

Cr Doody hasbeen usingacounter to get

asnapshot of speedsonMain Street and

has found,for the times she has been

observing, the average speedhas been

47kmh so far.

‘‘I will be goingbackand doing another

coupleofdays to get somemore

information,and particularly on aFriday

afternoon outside the supermarket,

because it’s manicaroundthere.

‘‘I wouldlike to see some residents take

aturn just to standthere for halfanhour

and make surethe children are safe.

‘‘Onceyou are standing there with ahiviz

vest on, they stop and takenotice.’’

She planstohand the dataover to

council staff to help them to makea

recommendationtothe Oxford­Ohoka

CommunityBoard, and to councillors.

The Ashley Gorge AdvisoryBoardhas

made asubmission to the council for an

electriccooker to be placed in the reserve,

as an alternative to lighting fires. Half the

required fundshave already beenraised.

‘‘Theyask for very little. They are ahard

working group,sohopefully we can

support them,’’ Cr Doody says.

The board has already developed

several tracks, and work is underway on a

new 5km trail up to the ridge line.

Acounter on site found that, from

NovembertoMarch, nearly6000people

walkedthe tracks.

www.northcanterburypodiatry.co.nz

As aself­confessed ‘‘shoe nerd’’, it was

not surprising that Erin Marsden chose

podiatry for acareer.

Erin has been apodiatrist since 2005,

and in January last year she opened her

own business in Rangiora, North

Canterbury Podiatry. She also has a

clinic in Oxford.

In Rangiora, Erin has rooms upstairs

in the Gables Arcade, where there is a

lift for clients, and she is open on

Tuesdays (including early evening),

Thursdays and Fridays.

In Oxford, she works from the new

Business Hub at 4Rata Street, and is

available every Monday, Wednesday,

and alternate Monday evenings.

Erin was born Kalbarri, north of Perth,

in Australia. She moved to New Zealand

in May 2010 to alifestyle block at Burnt

Hill, near Oxford, with her Kiwi husband

Dan, who was born in Christchurch.

The couple have two young daughters.

Before opening her business, Erin

worked for other podiatrists in

Riccarton.

She is ACC and War Veteranregistered,

as well as Pegasus Health

and Waitaha Primary Health Careregistered

for eligible people with

diabetes.

Erin says the Waimakariri district has

been short of podiatrists for many years

and, since establishing her business, she

has been kept ‘‘pleasantly busy but not

so busy that most people cannot get an

appointment within aweek’’.

She is grateful for the support she has

received since establishing her business

and believes the central location and

parking accessibility of both her clinics

in Oxford and Rangiora are abig help to

clients.

Erin says the best part of her job is

when a‘‘simple fix’’ can create such big

change in keeping people moving.

‘‘That is very rewarding,’’ she says.

Erin also says that for most types of

Crane ruled out for

last stages of canopy

Work on the 110­metre

rockfall canopy between

Peketa and the Parititahi

Tunnels, south of

Kaikoura, is expected to

finish in mid­June.

Because of the shape of

the hillside, a44­metre

zone in the north section

sits higher, and this

height, combined with the

weight of the mesh,

means the loader crane

cannot be used to help

install the mesh.

Instead, an abseiling

team will drape and

tension it manually,

slowing the pace of the

installation.

The existing timetable

for the opening and

closing of the road, with

the exception of Queen’s

Birthday weekend, will

continue, with daytime

delays and set times to

clear traffic.

However, work is still

expected to wrap up in

mid­June, subject to

weather.

The 30­minute daytime

delays (Monday to Friday,

9am to 5pm) will continue

until mid­June, with the

addition of three set

times where the queues

will be cleared

throughout the day to

allow the community to

plan their journeys.

These times will be:

10:30am: Northbound

queue cleared first, then

south;

12:30pm: Northbound

queue cleared first, then

south;

3:30pm: Southbound

queue cleared first, then

north.

Demanding work ... The

project is expected to be

finished in mid­June.

Uphill battle ... The work

requires an abseiling team.

Painstaking task ... Some

of the mesh installation will

have to be done without the

assistance of acrane.

They’re ascream

... The Addams

Family took

centre stage in

the Kaiapoi High

School

auditorium in the

school’s latest

production.

PHOTO: FILE

Yes folks, Wednesday is

approaching Thursday

By DAVIDHILL

Deep in the heart of New York’s Central

Park lives an almost normal American

family.

But, as Wednesday Addams —Leane

Visser’s character in Kaiapoi High

School's production of The Addams

Family —observes, what is normal

anyway?

Directed by acclaimed North

Canterbury director Paul Johnson, the

hilarious musical comedy’s portrayal of

20th­century American family life,

dragged kicking and screaming into the

21st century, had the audience roaring

with laughter from the opening note.

The familiar theme song was joined by

ahand appearing through the curtains

in the role of ‘‘Thing’’.

The curtains were eventually pulled

back to reveal the Addams family in all

their splendour, in the family graveyard

—and the Addams family ancestors even

rose from their graves to sing and dance

and to help guide the story.

Gomez and Morticia Addams, played

by Lachie Smith­Taumata and Ruby

Collier respecitvely, seem the perfect

couple, while Wednesday is handy with a

crossbow and enjoys bringing something

home for dinner.

The couple's son, Pugsley, played by

Lee Pockson, loves to blow things up,

while Uncle Fester, played by Gigi

REVIEW

Jones, seems your average eccentric

uncle. Grandma Addams (Rhian

Campbell) appears to be your kindly

grandmother and Lurch (Wolf Pene) the

butler, well, he’s just Lurch.

All seems kind of normal, but then

their lives are disrupted when

Wednesday announces afriend and his

parents are coming for dinner.

Morticia dismisses it as puppy love,

while Gomez realises, “Wednesday is

growing up so fast, before we know it,

she’ll be Thursday”.

Wednesday confides in her father that

she is already engaged to Lucas Bieneke,

played by Josh Smith, but don’t tell mum

until after dinner or she’ll ruin it with all

her questions and judgment.

The Bienekes, it transpires, come from

Ohio. For Gomez, this creates amoral

dilemma, because there are two things

he would never do —lie to his daughter

and lie to his wife.

As for poor Pugsley, who will torture

him now?

Well done to the cast, who were ideally

suited to their respective parts, and left

the audience in raptures with their

constant and well­timed gags.

Once again, Kaiapoi High School has

pulled off an outstanding stage show.

Initiatives to get winter grazing right

Farmers preparing to graze livestock on

fodder crops this winter are encouraged

to use anew checklist and other

practical resources available from

various sector organisations.

The farming sector is focused on

improving winter grazing and

eliminating practices that affect the

environment and animal welfare.

Anew wintering checklist and winter

grazing plans designed to help farmers

make practical written plans for winter

are now available from industry bodies

DairyNZ, Beef and Lamb New Zealand

(BLNZ) and Federated Farmers.

Acomprehensive winter grazing plan

is also available through the Ministry for

Primary Industries (MPI).

Plans are recommended to support

good management and farmers can use

either an industry or MPI plan.

DairyNZ farm performance general

manager Sharon Morrell encourages

farmers to make use of the new

resources, as it helps take the right steps

in continuing to lift winter grazing

standards.

‘‘Planning for winter and wet weather

now is important to deliver good

outcomes when adverse weather

arrives.

‘‘Farmers will begin moving stock on

to crops in the next few weeks, so now is

the critical time to ensure all plans are

in place for the months ahead.

‘‘We are all committed to lifting winter

grazing performance, and using a

wintering checklist and practical plan

helps farmers and graziers to do that.’’

The new wintering checklist helps

farmers assess whether they are

prepared for winter and highlight any

potential gaps.

The checklist is supported by other

new initiatives, such as webinars,

workshops and regular information

from industry bodies collaborating on

advice to farmers to ensure it is coordinated

and consistent.

The advice is in line with new

guidelines recently released by MPI.

‘‘We all want to see the sector perform

well this winter, with farmers and

graziers making good calls during each

phase, from planning through to wet

weather management,’’ BLNZ North

Island general manager Corina Jordan

says.

Being prepared for winter ... Planning for winter and wet weather now is important to

deliver good outcomes when adverse weather arrives.

In addition, DairyNZ’s new winter

grazing plan provides step­by­step

strategies for paddock set­up and

grazing management for immediate

focus this winter.

This includes protecting critical

source areas and waterways, bale

placement, back fencing, and having a

wet­weather contingency plan.

BLNZ will also be delivering aseries

of winter grazing workshops around the

country.

Ajoint BLNZ and DairyNZ webinar is

taking place this evening (Thursday)

between 7pm and 8pm to help farmers

understand the key risks when

undertaking winter grazing, and

management tools to help mitigate the

risks.

The sector has also recently launched

awintering hotline for any concerns or

complaints.

If anyone sees something that doesn’t

look right, they can call the wintering

hotline on 0800 FARMING.

The hotline is supported by Federated

Farmers, BLNZ and DairyNZ and calls

are confidential.

The base layer provides the

the baselayer, forcing it to lose

The base should be madeupof

Wendy’strials bring her joy

By DAVID HILL

Oxford dog triallist Wendy Dalziel has

been working with dogs most of her life.

The Lees Valley shepherd is competing

in the Tux South Island and New Zealand

2021 dog trial championships in Southland

this week.

‘‘Dog trials are ahighlight on the event

calendar for me each year,’’ she says.

‘‘I have competed at different clubs all

over New Zealand and each one presents

its own challenges.’’

Wendy first got into dog trialling as a

youngster growing up in Waikari.

‘‘Graeme Low was judging on the long

head and said he couldn’t close the course

because he was waiting on me to get off the

school bus to have my run,’’ she recalls.

After time away in the North Island, she

returned to farming and shepherding in

2007, and soon found her way back on to the

competition circuit.

‘‘I trained up anew team and have

managed to qualify adog for the nationals

each year since.

‘‘Dog trialling is an enjoyable way to

challenge yourself and your dog away from

the pressures of the work environment.

‘‘I pride myself in qualifying aheading

dog and huntaway because, at home, with

general farm work, it is all about having a

balanced team.

‘‘The farm is essentially my training

ground. It keeps the dogs fit,

fundamentally refining their skills, and

mine.’’

Dog trialling is also asocial sport as ‘‘you

always learn something, bump into

someone you know, and Ithink it’s great to

see younger generations stepping up to

have ago’’.

‘‘Whether you are competing, judging,

book­keeping or observing, everyone plays

their part and Iamgenuinely lucky to be

involved in all of those aspects.’’

At work... Oxford dog triallistWendyDalziel enjoys getting out with her dogs.

Saracens triumph in emphatic fashion

By LINDSAY KERR, PETER WILLIAMS

and DAYLE SUTHERLAND

Saracens’ 42­20victoryover

Glenmark­Cheviot in North

Canterbury rugbyonSaturday

not onlyconfirmed the side’s topof­the­table

status,but alsohad

olderclub members suggesting

the winningmargin was arecord.

Meanwhile,Kaiapoiwithstood

aherculean effort from bottomof­the­table

Woodend to keepits

second place on the ladder,

before emerging with a36­29

victory.

Aftersix rounds, Saracens

leadsthe table with 27 points.

Kaiapoi is on 24, Glenmark­

Cheviot18, Oxford14, Ohoka 14,

Hurunui 10, Ashley 8, and

Woodend 4.

Traditional strip

The Saracens clash against

Glenmark­Cheviot wasplayed at

Cheviottocelebrate the Cheviot

club’s 125 years. The combined

team wore the traditional black

and white strip.

The opening quarter revealed

little of whatwas coming.

Both teams traded penalties

through Ricky Allin and Brook

Retallick,and with Glenmark­

Cheviotonhot attack, atry

seemed imminent.

That was untilSaracens seized

on amistake and an ensuing

attack saw the ball transfer

between three pairsofhands

before centre Hadrian Jackson

dotted down.

The try boughtaboutachange

of face and momentum. The

home teamnever recovered,

whileSaracens grewin

confidence.

Before half­time, Saracens

continued to hammer the

defence.

With Glenmark­Cheviot’s

inspirational captainBen

Anderson confinedtothe bin,

Saracens crossed twice, onlyto

be heldupbyadesperate

defence.

However, the boot of Allin

addedtothe scoreand Saracens

went to the break withahandy

22­6 advantage.

Any thought of aGlenmark­

Cheviotresurgence never

occurred and Allin continued to

punish the side for anyerrors.

Apenaltywas followedbya

converted try and apushovertry.

The marginwith 20 minutes left

extended to 37­6.

With timerunning out,

Glenmark­Cheviot finally

secured goodball and Anderson

was rumbled overthe line.

Fullback Toby Ashby scored

Saracens’ fourth try before

hooker Ben O’Carroll helpedthe

pain for Glenmark­Cheviot,

scoring in thelast movement of

the game.

Heading the Saracens effort

was the performance of its

outsidebacks. NikoraJarvis,

Hadrian Jackson and Harry

Murray alwayslookedfor work

and showedconsiderableskill

and speed when givenhalf a

chance.

Scoreboard: Saracens 42 (Slade

Day, Josh Maynard, Hadrian

Cheviot 20 (Ben Anderson, Ben

O’Carroll tries. Brook Retallick 2

Tightcontest

Woodend showedonce again it

is certainlynot in the Luisetti

SeedsDivision1competition to

make up thenumbers.

It came within awhiskerof

upsetting the highly rated

Kaiapoi side.

The scoreswere tied 29­all

when the clock ticked over 80

minutes, and it was deep into

injury time whenthe Kaiapoi

forwards wererewarded when

replacementlock Brennan Kara

was propelledover the line for

the try that won the match.

It was obvious that Woodend

had come to play whenJordan

Swaine rackedup10points from

apenalty, atry and aconversion

—all in the first seven minutes.

Kaiapoi foughtback and

showed snippets of its undoubted

ability, scoring three first­half

tries, twoofthem to Crusaders

squadmember Josh McKay, who

recently announced he had

signed withthe Scottish club

Glasgow Warriors, and wouldbe

moving there after playing for

Canterbury in the Bunnings NPC.

As one of the Kaiapoi players

admitted after the match: “We

were our own worst enemy.’’

It was an error­ridden

performance from Kaiapoi,

Off he goes ... Toby Ashby sets offfor atry for Saracensinits win overGlenmark­Cheviot.

especially in the firsthalf, with

many loosepassesbeing thrown

and aconstant stream of

infringements helping to keep

Woodend in the game,asSwaine

showed the ability to land goals

from all over the park. He landed

5penalties in all.

The scoreswere 19­all at half

time and it seemed Kaiapoi was

startingtogain the upper hand,

especially in setpieces.The

game was turnedonits ear in the

71st minute whenWoodend’s

firstfive Keynan Smithlatched

on to another poor Kaiapoipass

inside Woodend’s 22 metreline

and showed plenty of toe. He was

cut downbythe cover defence

near the tryline butmanaged to

get apass to ConnorSwaine, who

completed aspectacular try.

Brother Jordan’sconversion

gave Woodend a3point lead.

The thought of the Woodend

presidentclearingaspace forthe

DeansShield in its trophy

cabinet was enoughtoconvince

Kaiapoi captain JacobHurringto

opt for ashot at goal when the

side was awarded apenalty right

in frontwith time running out.

TaineJacobs­Lawson landed the

pressure kick to tie the scores,

and Kaiapoi still had time to

surgeback on attack andapply

the killer blow.

For Kaiapoi,skipper Hurring

was fullofendeavour and was

rewardedwith twotries,but most

present would acknowledge the

outstandingeffortofthe whole

Woodend team, which simply

refusedtolie down.

Mikey Rhys and captain Dan

Devlin led the way in the

forwards and Jordan Swaine was

an ever­presentthreat.

Hurunui prevails

Hurunui had the better of the

second half against Ashley and

camefrom behindtowin 20­13.

Hurunui usedits benchwisely,

withimpact players who would

normally havestarted but had

beenforcedtosit it out because

of ano­practice,no­start policy —

Gus Waghorn was Hurunui’s

player of the day.

Ashley’s error rate in the

second half stifled its secondspell

Sustainability the key

By DAVID HILL

Annabelle and Georgie Stalkerare the

sixth generation on theirfamily’s

Waimakariri farm.

The girl’s father, Richard Stalker, is

joining dozens of otherlocalfarmersina

projectfunded by the Ministryfor Primary

Industries to assist the future of farming

under new regulations.

The initiativeispart of athree­year,

farmer­led sustainability projectlaunched

in the Waimakariri district.

The $700,000project receives 60 percent

support under the ministry’s sustainable

foodand fibrefuturesfund and is led by

the Waimakariri Landcare Trust,formerly

the Next GenerationFarmers.

Trust chairman and fifth­generation

dairy farmer Sam Spencer­Bower says it is

an opportunity to investigate practical

solutions that balance farm profitability

and environmental sustainability.

‘‘Waimakaririfarmers facesignificant

water, environmental and sustainability

challenges,’’ he says.

‘‘Environmental stewardship is already

partofour daily operations. It is part of our

social licenceand responsibility as

caretakersofthe land.

‘‘Weare bringingthe farming sector

togethertoinvestigate and test new onfarmpracticesand

tools to help farmers

continue reducing environmental risk,

while still remaining profitable so they can

Farmer confidence and farmviability

playakey role in achievingenvironmental

improvement, he says.

‘‘There are lots of fancy ideas out there

but theyneed to be practicaland proven, to

givefarmers the confidence to invest in

them. We are seriousabout makinga

For Mr Stalker, adairy farmer,the

“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.

Registration from 8am

“It’s an indescribable

feeling to know that

your child can hear

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

ARR coordinator Kirstyn Barnett

says the event is all about enjoying the

outdoors with family and friends.

“Every time I go to the Ashley-

Rakahuri river I see something new.

We are so lucky to have this national

treasure in our backyard, so easily

accessible for cyclists and walkers.”

She is delighted that the funds raised

from the event will go towards helping

local people enjoy a better quality of

Rakahanga hostel, which is named after

one of the islands, and is like amarae,

Pax says.

“It’s very basic, but community focused

and everybody pitches in with cooking

and cleaning.

“They are wonderful hosts and are quite

proud of their country and are really

happy, humble people.”

Far more Cook Island nationals live

in New Zealand, with the 2013 census

population as the Waimakariri district.

The culture and language are similar

Bad Recycling Bill Continues to Climb

Fresh statistics show that extra costs from bad

recycling is still growing.

Since bin checks began in October last year, 253

truckloads of recycling have been sent to the

landfill at acost of $307,800.

“We’re seeing improvements on astreetbystreet

basis, but,overall contamination is still high andtrucks

of recycling are still heading to the landfill”,says Kitty

Waghorn,Council’sSolid WasteAssetManager.

Contamination ratesaresitting at almost 40percent

four weeks into thesecondround ofbin checks.

Eco Central who process most of Canterbury’s

recycling have anacceptance criteria of less than

10 percent contamination and trucks that exceed

that are diverted to the landfill.

Kitty said the Council will be getting tougher on

people who continue to ignore warnings to clean

up their recycling.

So far six households have had bins removed that

have continued to be filled with rubbish, two are

on the list for immediate removal, and another

eleven are on awatchlist to be regularly re-checked

because they have had three contaminations.

“The removal of bins from these properties means

we have abetter chance of being able to recycle.

The households were given several opportunities

to improve their recycling and bin removals are the

last resort".
