Alife of faith and family

By ROBYN BRISTOW

FloraMorris saysher Catholic faith

and familyhave been the main

reasons she has enjoyed afull and

happylife.

Flora, or Ma as she is affectionately

knownbyher family, celebrated her

100thbirthday on Wednesday.

The Woodend Beach residentsays

her Catholic faith is the most

important thing in her life.

‘‘After that it is my wonderful

family. Icouldn’t have had abetter

family,’’ she says. ‘‘I don’tsmoke, but

Ilikealittle drop of brandy at night.

One only.’’

Floralives independentlyinher

home of about40years.‘‘I am happy

here,’’ she says.

She has justhad her driver’s

licence renewed in the past couple of

weeks, having been given aclean bill

of healthbyher doctor.

Floraloves her iPadand is

addicted to Google, using it to stay in

touchwith her familythrough

messaging, emailing and phoning.

‘‘Sheisashocker for researching,’’

her daughter­in­law, TresnaHonson,

says.

Life has taken London­born Flora

to Australia, New Zealand and back

to the United Kingdom,before she

and her husband, Doug, and their

threeboys,settled back in New

Zealand.

She was borninLondon on May 26,

1921.Just afew days later her mother

died.She was brought up by her

father and an aunt,who treatedher

like adaughter.

In 1936the family settledin

Melbourne, where her father, a

tailor, worked for MyerEmporium as

the head designer of women’s and

men’sclothing. The family wentto

Tasmaniafor time, beforemoving to

New Zealand, where her father

worked for Ballantynes and was

fortunate to escape its1947

department store fireunscathed.

‘‘I worked for asmall firm doing

clerical work. Then Imet this lovely

person, Douglas Morris,who wasin

the army,and we got married.’’

She met him in aBarbadoes Street

bed­and­breakfastwhere she and her

aunt were living.‘‘He asked me out to

thepictures. Ihad to get permission

first,ofcourse,’’Flora recalls.

They married in St Mary’s Catholic

Church in Christchurch. Being

young, they wanted to see the world.

They headed for London. The

couple lived at Harpenden, with

Doug, who was on night shift,

travelling to London on his motorbike

to workasatailor.

‘‘He wouldbefrozen travelling30

miles,’’ saysFlora, who persuaded

him to look for anotherjob. They

ended up running aBedfordshire

pub, the George Inn, for three years,

where theirthree boys, Paul,

Christopher andGreg, wereraised.

As pub life became too busy with

three growing boys, the couple

decidedtoreturn to New Zealand.

Flora was sea sick for the six weeks

aboard the ship. They settled in

Christchurch,with astint in Wellington.

Their last move was about 40

years ago to Woodend Beach.

The couple became immersedin

North Canterbury life. Beingavid

music fans,they joined the North

CanterburyMusical Society, and

Flora playedher keyboard in rest

homes until her early 90s.They

played housie, and Doug, who died

about 10 years ago,enjoyed bowls.

Flora enjoysthe Chervier Ladies

group activities, and continuestobe

involved in the community. Her

mornings start with her breakfast,

during whichshe watches the birds

she feeds.‘‘We can learn alot from

nature,’’ Florasays.

Losing herhusband and one of her

sons, Christopher, has beendifficult

for the centenarian, but she

continues to enjoylife, loves reading,

and relishes the company of all her

family.They include her great grandson,

Cove, and three grandchildren.

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The fire thatdestroyedthe

WaiauLodgeHotelonFriday

nightwas so fierce that its

glow could be seen fromthe

Red PostcorneronState

Highway 7, nearly 20km away.

ChiefFire Officer Craig

Ritchie saidCulverden

volunteer firefighters could

see the glow as they headed

the 22km to join the Waiau

brigade.

By the time theyarrived,

the pub’s secondstorey had

been destroyed.

OwnerMichelleBeri said

her business partner, Lindsay

Collins,heard abang as he

locked up the tavern next

door at midnightlast Friday.

By that time, fire had taken

hold at the hotel.

The Waiau brigade set

aboutpreventingitspreading

to nearby buildings,

recognising it was far too

dangerous to try to enterit.

The historic 1910 pub,

fondly called the GrandOld

Lady,had been red­stickered

and empty since the 2016

earthquake, which was

centred on Waiau.There was

no power to the building.

Sincethen, Michelle has

battled red tape, andconstant

financial woesinher efforts

Sky aglow ...

to securethe hotel’s future.

She and Lindsay built asmall,

temporarytavernalongside

the hotel in May 2017, to carry

the licence

and servethe community

whilethey triedto

mastermind ways to get the

pub reopened.

They plan to continue to

run thetavern, but have let

the off­licence go this week

because of the escalating cost

and becausethey did not

carryalot of alcohol anyway.

Michelle is still comingto

termswith the pub being

destroyed. She said she was

hystericalasshe sat outside

the heritage jailacrossthe

road in the early hours of

Saturday morning, watching

the hotel burn to the ground.

‘‘It was horrible. Icouldn’t

face anyone or talk to

anyone.’’

She hopes security camera

footage from nearbywill

provide clues around the

causeofthe fire.‘‘We need to

know what happened.’’

Michelle was quick to

dismiss social media

commentsthat someone

mighthavebeenpaid to set

the pub alight, or someone

thought they were helping

her.

‘‘Who’s going to bother

The Waiau Lodge Hotel was engulfed in flames atthe height of the blaze.

Michelle says the whole

property, including the

temporary tavern next door,

had been for sale for some

time‘‘as is, where is’’.There

had been no serious offers,

and now she does not know

where to turn.

She is visitingthe Hurunui

District Council to discuss the

legalities of what to do with

the mess.

Michelle and Lindsay

movedtoWaiauin2015,after

‘‘a rollercoaster’’four years in

Christchurch after the 2010

and 2011 earthquakes. They

tavern —hehas oneend, she

has the other.

Michelle has organised

money to get the hotel open

again, including arallyfor

the paddock behind the hotel.

There werechairs,

She is grateful to the

volunteer firemenfor

ensuringthe fire didn’t

spread. She says her brother

and sister­in­law and several

locals had also been amazing.

Culverdenfire chief Craig

Ritchie says.

He says the numbering

system in the Amuri basin and

beyond has becomeconfusing,

due in part to large dairy farms

with multiplehomesonthem

beingestablished, as well as

the influences of subdivision

and populationgrowth.

He says in recentweeks a

wasted valuable time trying to

find properties because the

databasedoes not correspond

to the location of the property.

New policeand St John

personnel, and anew mailman,

none of whom have years of

localknowledge, are being

caught out by the muddled

system. Numbers hidden

behind overgrown hedges and

trees, and on clusters of

mailboxes on the oppositeside

of the road to the address, are

adding to the chaos.

Mr Ritchie says St John

recently had acallout to asixmonth­old

difficulties.

Ahelicopter was on its way

fromChristchurch while St

John, with anew paramedic at

the wheel,tried to find the

address. St John endedupina

centre had to ring the house

occupantsand ask them to go

out and find thecrew.

Anew mailman is taking all

the faultysystem,while even

long­serving volunteer

firefighters with local

knowledge are strugglingat

times to find addresses,Mr

Ritchie says. This is especially

the case where thereare five

the RAPID number is on the

it is critical that numbers are

Push to cut speeds on

Oxford residents are calling for speed

reductionsonthe town’s Main Street.

Concerned residents Ted Dring and

particularly the elderly, the visionimpaired,

suggests anew limit of 40kmh.

Business confidence climbs

By ROBYN BRISTOW

North Canterbury business operators

are more confident about the economic

outlook than at any time in the last four

years.

The latest North Canterbury

Business Opinion Survey, released last

week by Enterprise North Canterbury,

showed an increase to net +1 percent

in business confidence across

respondents for the first quarter of

2021.

This compared to anet ­59% during

Covid­19 last year. The positive outlook

is the first since April 2017.

Asimilar increase in confidence is

apparent across the country, with

national business confidence rising

from anet ­67% last year to ­11% today.

The confidence could be attributed to

other key statistics that came out of the

report, including 40% of businesses

reporting that their business has grown

as aresult of Covid­19, an increase in

sales, and afall in the number of

businesses that consider themselves

negatively affected by Covid­19.

Dalton, said the first round of Covid­19

lockdowns was now ayear ago.

‘‘At the time, businesses were hit

hard and it was impossible to know how

things would look in three, six or 12

months’ time. Businesses have told us

that Government subsidies for Covid,

along with lessons learnt through

various earthquakes, helped them to

weather the difficult period during and

after lockdown.

‘‘The latest survey gives us agood

insight into how far we’ve come and

how our local businesses have bounced

back and continue to do so.”

Mr Dalton says the other interesting

statistic to come out of the latest survey

was around sustainability.

“For the first time we asked North

Canterbury businesses how willing

they would be to invest in order to

improve their sustainability or lessen

their carbon impact.

‘‘We were delighted with the

response, which showed 73% of

surveyed businesses would invest in

measures to improve these two

markers, and 14% of those businesses

would be prepared to do so for no

financial return.”

Residents fear intrusion

Neighbours of part of Lime Development’s Sterling

They say the proposal wouldsee buildings towering

Many affected residentshave sent in submissions

againstthe proposal, and plan to fight it ‘‘vigourously’’.

Daniel Huisman and his wife, Caroline, who live in

Murray Place,just west of the motorway in Kaiapoi,

say the proposal is aradical departure from what was

previouslyplannedfor the area. Residents had been

Waiau endures further woes

Adversity is astate of hardship,

difficulty or misfortune that we all face

from time to time.

Waiau district is again facing

adversity with the loss of another

community asset, the Waiau Lodge

Hotel.

Built in 1910, it has faithfully served

the community as ameeting place and

“watering hole” over the years until it

faced the misfortune to sustain

significant damage in the 2016

Hurunui­ Kaikoura earthquake.

Managers have come and gone over

the years, each bringing their own style

and flair to the place. “Frothy Jack”, as

the name suggests, had his own way of

pulling apint.

All this now rests within the rich

history of Waiau.

The district also faces adversity with

the ongoing dry conditions. There is

access to help with support and

guidance available through the Rural

Support Trust.

With this in mind, the “Refill your

Cup” team has secured awinter­time

presentation, and on this occasion is

delighted to host an inspiring speaker

who will be of interest to all.

Gilbert Enoka is coming to the

Hurunui on June 22, speaking at 7pm at

the Omihi Community Hall.

Gilbert has along history of success

as amental skills coach with New

Zealand’s corporate and sporting elite,

and is internationally renowned for his

19­year history with the All Blacks.

His expertise is not limited to the

sports field. He is ahighly sought­after

speaker, offering insights into the

psychology behind individual and team

success in world­level sport, and how

this can be applied to any walk of life.

Gilbert will talk about leadership,

performing under pressure, mental

management, strategic planning, and

building athriving culture.

This presentation promises to

provide insights to stimulate and

motivate arange of ideas that can be

adapted to all individual situations.

The “Refill your Cup” team is

delighted to offer this opportunity in

these challenging times.

Kia kaha, and take care.

Looming loss of bank

branch disappoints

By DAVID HILL

Localcommunity leaders have voiced

theirdisappointment at Westpac’s

announcement that it will close itsKaiapoi

branch on June23.

Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon and

Kaiapoi­TuahiwiCommunity Board

chairwoman Chris Greengrass are among

thosetohave expressed their concerns.

‘‘Thetiming of thisdecision is alarming,

with cheques also no longerbeing

accepted at the sametime,’’Mrs

Greengrass said.

‘‘I desperately feel for the older Westpac

customerswho arestruggling to

understand moderntechnology, and many

will now have to relyonotherstotake

them to Rangiora.’’

Mr Gordon wrote to Westpac New

Zealand chief executive David McLean

last week, calling on him to reconsider. Mr

Gordon highlighted the district’s growth,

and even offered to help the bank find a

new location in Kaiapoi whenits lease

expires.

‘‘Despite the positive economic profile

of Kaiapoi, as well as the repercussions for

businessesand members of our

community (especially our seniors), the

decision has been made to close the

branch on June23,’’MrGordon said.

‘‘My thoughts are with the staff.

However, Ihave beenassuredthroughout

the process that all staff will be reassigned

to other branches.’’

Mr McLean,inresponding to Mr Gordon,

explained thatover­the­counter

transactions had dropped 65 percent

nationwide overthe last four years,

making many branches ‘‘unsustainable’’.

‘‘This was astrong trend beforeCovid­19

and has since accelerated. In the case of

northeastChristchurch andthe area

immediately north,wehavebranchesat

Eastgate, Kaiapoi, Rangiora,and we

expect to reopen Papanui laterthis year.

‘‘In thiscontext, we are proposingto

closeKaiapoi, where over­the­counter

transactions havedropped by 45% since

the first Covid­19lockdown.’’

Whilereduced opening hours may be a

factor in thisdecline, Mr McLean believes

the mainreason is most customersare

simply choosingtobank online.

But he acknowledged internet banking

‘‘is not easier foreveryone’’.

Westpac is working on solutions for

organisationsneedingtochange

signatories.

‘‘In the meantime, these customerswill

unfortunatelyneed to travel to another

branch,’’MrMcLeansaid.

The feasibilityofupgrading the ATM at

Kaiapoi’s Countdownsupermarket is

being investigated,and Westpac is working

with SeniorNettoassist with the transition

to digitalbanking, he said.

All amatter of luck for Rangiora High School

By ABIGAIL CHESSUM

With luck on its side, Rangiora

High School took the runner­up

trophy in the Canterbury

regional section of the recent

national performing arts

competition, ShowQuest.

The school chose ‘‘Luck’’ as

its theme. More than 86

students took part, practising

anywhere from four to 10 hours

aweek outside school hours.

Schools that enter must

deliver amessage or theme

through the language of dance,

drama, music, art, culture and

technology.

Up to 100 students can be

involved, encouraging asense

of community within the school,

as well as creating room for

students to become involved in

leadership positions.

‘‘Regardless of where you

finish in this competition, it

provides areally valuable

experience for our school

community,’’’ says Keith

Anderson, an overseeing

teacher who has seen Rangiora

place in many ShowQuests.

‘‘It enables adiverse number

of people to work on something

really worthwhile.’’

Luck was explored in four

sections —good luck, bad luck,

superstitions, and the luck of

being in New Zealand.

Students created anineminute

dance spectacle that

also took awards for best use of

costumes, best props, and best

backdrop.

Rangiora High School has

competed in the contest for

many years, alongside other

fierce competitors such as

Burnside High School, which

won, and Cashmere High

School, which finished third.

Student leader and choreographer

Ella Spark said it was a

cool experience for everyone.

Praise for district's

social recovery

By DAVID HILL

Waimakariri’s socialrecovery is faring

better than expected.

Cr Philip Redmond, speaking after last

week’s meeting of theWaimakaririDistrict

Council community and recreation

committee meeting, whichhechairs, said

the community was well supported.

The committeewas presentedwith a

Covid­19 social recovery update report—

one of three reports presentedtothe

meeting by community team manager

TessaSturley.

‘‘My conclusion is thatwedohaveasafe,

well­connected community in

Waimakariri,’’ Cr Redmond said.

‘‘It’s quite amazingwhen you see

everything thatgoes on. We just touched

the surface as there are so manythings

happening,soit’s not all doomand gloom.

‘‘Thecommunity team is doingagreat

job andall the thingsthey do help to make

the community thatmuch better.’’

The socialrecoveryupdate report

followed the presentationofaCovid­19

recoveryupdatebyrecovery manager

SimonHart to the full council meeting

earlier this month.

In his update, Mr Hart said retail

spending in the Waimakariri District

increasedby1.3 percent in 2020, despite

the lockdown, and unemploymentwas just

3.1%.

But he acknowledged the statistics did

not always reveal the full picture of how

families were faring.

Cr Redmond said the community team

has been networkingwith the various

social agencies in the district to ensure

support is available for those who needit.

‘‘Theimpression is that the community

Cycleway nears completion

By DAVID HILL

The new Kaiapoi cycleway is set to be

finallycompleted.

Work is under way on the final section

of the Christchurch to Kaiapoi cycleway,

afterthe WaimakaririDistrictCouncil

decided to review the route lastyear in

response to residents’ concerns.

‘‘It’s very exciting to see the completion

of the cycleway looming,’’ Kaiapoi­

Tuahiwi CommunityBoard chairwoman

ChrisGreengrass says.

‘‘While it has been along and arduous

task for boththe board and the residents

of Peraki and Willockstreets,the board

appreciates the workcouncil staff have

done to try to mitigate fearsthe residents

aired.

‘‘However, the boardwas elected to

represent and make harddecisions

beneficial to Kaiapoiand we believe, as

the resultofthe many meetings held,this

is the safest route and will benefit

Kaiapoi.’’

Kaiapoi PromotionsAssociation

chairman Martin Pinkham saysthe

cycleway is provingtobeasuccessin

bringing cyclists out fromChristchurch.

is in quite goodheart. Unemployment is

low and with the amount of groups

available to help, the mind boggles.

‘‘Social isolation is definitely abig topic

and it’s one areawhere we can help.’’

InitiativessuchasFoodSecure North

Canterbury,the community team’s

neighbourhood barbecues, andthe recent

‘‘tradie breakfast’’are just some examples

of the support available, Cr Redmond says.

Food Secure NorthCanterbury is a

collaboration between variousagencies,

including Satisfy Food Rescue, Social

Services Waimakariri, and the Hurunui

and Waimakariri district councils.

Funding of $690,000 was received from

the Ministry of SocialDevelopmentlast

year towards the foodsecurity initiative,

while the Waimakariri DistrictCouncil

has helped with the employment of staff to

facilitatethe project.

Acommunity hub in Kaiapoiisalso

being consideredaspart of the 2021/31

Long Term Plan, whichwouldinclude a

base for Food Secure NorthCanterbury.

About 500 people attendedeight

barbecues run by the community team

between Decemberand March,which

were ‘‘very successful’’, says Cr Redmond,

who spenttime cooking sausages.

‘‘It’sagreat way for people to connect

with theirneighboursand otherresidents

and, from what the staff said, there were

new connectionsfor peopleliving in the

same neighbourhood who didn’tknow

each other.

‘‘So it’s agreat way of overcoming social

isolation.’’

The tradie breakfastwas agood way to

spread the wordabout whatsupport

services are available, and it is believed

some workers have soughthelp as aresult.

He saysitisessential there is asafe

route for cyclists intoKaiapoi’s town

centre and to link with the Passchendaele

Pathway between Kaiapoi and Rangiora.

‘‘Ican’t believethe number of people

using thatcycleway in the weekends. It’s

amazing.

‘‘It has taken awee while to work with

residents and Ithinkthe people in the

street didn’t quite understand whatwas

being proposed.

‘‘So many cyclists and pedestrians use

Peraki Street anyway, including students

at St Patrick’sand Kaiapoi Borough

Schools, so we had to do something.’’

The success of redeveloping

Christchurch streets into slowroads and

shared pathways shows how well it can

work, Mr Pinkham says.

Councilstaff expect the worktobe

completed by the end of June.

Anew raisedplatform at the northern

end of Peraki Streethas been installed,

while work continues to upgrade the

intersections of Perakiand Fuller streets,

and Vickeryand Isaac Wilson streets. A

platformisalso being installed outsideSt

Patrick’s School, and PerakiStreet is

expected to reopen to traffic this week.

Precise work ... Tim Huffadine works on the recalibration of avehicle’s windscreen

Precision Autoglass leads

way in windscreen technology

Precision Autoglass has acquired

world­leadingwindscreen technology

for its Rangiora workshop.

Thismakes the companythe only

independent and locally owned

repairerwho usethisinnovative

technologyinNorthCanterbury.

The cutting­edge ADAS Calibration

toolenables thefullytrained

technicians at PrecisionAutoglass to

correctlyrecalibratewindscreens in

vehicles equippedwithsophisticated

ADAStechnology, which stands for

advanced driverassistancesystems.

Precision Autoglassowner Tim

Huffadine says that mostmodern

vehicles are equipped withADAS

technologywhich includes oneormore

windscreencameras.

However, many peopledon’t know

their vehiclesare fittedwith this

technology, which controls many safety

features suchaslane departure

warnings,pedestriandetection,

adaptive cruisecontrol,collision

avoidance systemsand automatic

headlights.

The technology alsodetects nearby

obstacles, assists driversduring

parking manoeuvres, andhelps them

respond safelytodriver errors.

ADASmakesmodernvehiclesmuch

safer. But Tim saysitiscrucial for

vehicleowners to realise thatifthe

windscreenhas to be replaced,itmust

be recalibrated correctlyand

precisely, otherwise the safety of the

vehiclewill be compromisedand any

insurance cover maybeinvalid. This

alsoapplies whenchanges are made to

other parts of thevehicleaffected by

the ADASsystem, suchasatyre­size

changeorwheelalignments.

The recalibrationmust be done in a

controlled environmentand cannotbe

doneoffsite because environmental

influences such as sunlight,wind,rain

and uneven surfaces caninterfere with

the process. Uponcompletion of the

windscreen replacement and

recalibration, aconcisereport is

generated and kept on file for future

reference.

The ADASCalibration toolisproving

ahugebenefittoclients because it

means owners do nothave to take their

cars to thedealership to have the work

done.

Covid-19 and quakes keep B.G

Beaven Builders busy in Kaikoura

The building boom is keeping

established building company BG

Beaven busy in Kaikoura.

The company extended its

Rotherham-based building services

into the seaside resort in 2019.

Its three Kaikoura-based builders

and company proprietor Barney

Beaven are being kept busy thanks

to the Covid-19 pandemic that has

seen people spending their money at

home on new homes, extensions and

alternations.

‘‘Their money is no good in the bank

because of the low interest rate, so

they are investing it in property.

‘‘There is also alot of people in

Kaikoura and North Canterburystill

doing earthquake repairs which we

help out with,’’ Barney says.

While BGBeaven is the main

contractor on jobs, Barney says he

sub-contracts jobs such as drainage

and electrical work to local firms

where possible.

BGBeaven is also registered with

Service Resources, and gains alot of

Government agency work through

the company.

The company is working on an office

block for Kiwi Rail off Beach Road in

Kaikoura.

The building has been leased out

for many years, but has now been

converted into three offices and

ameeting room. Six metres has

been added to it for awet area for

accessible showers, toilets and

lockers for men and women.

The block firstly had to be engineered

to 67 percent of the seismic

building code,

Barney

explains.

Meanwhile, B G

Beaven retains

its Rotherham

base, from

which it

has been

providing

services

throughout

North

Canterbury

for more than

40 years.

Barney and Wendy

remain the foundation

Outdoor

Living

of the business, with Barney still

building and Wendy,anaccountant,

looking after the business’s financial

affairs.

The company has come along way

since Barney began building woolsheds

as a21year old.

The work now extends far beyond

farmbuildings, with the company

providing everything from repairing

weatherboards to building $2 million

architecturally designed

homes.

BGBeaven can get

plansdrawn up

for clients from

reputable subcontractors,

and its two

Rotherhambased

project

managers

do pricing

and guide

clients, while

alsoensuring

buildsmeet all the

buildingstandards,

rules and regulations.

The new Kiwi Rail office block that BG

Beaven are working on in Kaikoura.

20 The North Canterbury News, May 27, 2021

Organic vineyard

comes out on top

North Canterbury’s Greystone

Wines has claimed two top

prizes at the 2021 Organic Wine

Awards.

Greystone’s 2019

Chardonnay was named the

champion chardonnay and

Greystone’s 2018 Syrah the

champion syrah.

The vineyard’s win follows it

being named as the

Sustainable Winery of the Year

in the 2020 awards.

Greystone’s winemaker, Dom

Maxwell, says the wins

acknowledge the efforts of the

team and their dedication to

organics.

It is part of their determination

to thrive, he says. ‘‘We’re

getting better each year as we

improve our understanding of

the land and vineyard.

‘‘It has taken years of hard

work to get to where it is

today,’’ he says.

The Aotearoa Organic Wine

Awards are not like other wine

awards. There are no paid

sponsors, no award ceremonies

and no entry fees.

The only requirement is that

the wine is produced from

certified organic grapes.

The entries are blind­tasted

by up to 20 judges, who are 100

percent independent and have

no business interest in any

competing vineyard.

Dom says North Canterbury

❛It’s awesometosee

two small vineyards

from NorthCanterbury

scoop nearly threequarters

of the national

awards.❜

—Dom Maxwell

took five of the eight varietal

trophies on offer this year, with

Terrace Edge winning

champion riesling, champion

pinot gris and champion rose.

‘‘It’s awesome to see two

small vineyards from North

Canterbury scoop nearly threequarters

of the national

awards.

‘‘We’re not sure everyone

appreciates the attention to

detail that goes into making

organic wine and the benefits

to our environment.’’

Terrace Edge also picked up

the Riedel Vineyard of the

Year Award for the second

time.

Dom says the region’s strong

showing should make

Cantabrians sit up and take

notice.

‘‘North Canterbury is still

one of the best kept secrets as

far as New Zealand wine goes.’’

‘‘This is our third annual sale

for 2­year­old bulls and it’s

sense and you get more people

on the day with bigger numbers

of stock.

‘‘We’re pretty optimistic,’’ he

says.

‘‘We’ve had adry summer, but

we had good rainfalls early on

in the season and the cattle

have travelled pretty well.

‘‘The schedule is back abit,

but overall it’s pretty positive

looking ahead for next season,

and the sheep have been doing

well.’’

Rob and Mary Ann Burrows

will have 22 Beechwood

Hereford bulls in the sale, with

several sired by Grassmere

Gallant 244, which they

purchased for $60,000 three

years ago.

‘‘We are very pleased with his

says.

‘‘He’s apretty special bull.

Four studs have used him and

he’s got alot of progeny, with

not putting them back in the

says.

The Molloys imported

Speckle Park embryos and have

been gradually building their

Speckle Park stud up from a

Hereford base.

‘‘We are still small, but we are

slowly getting there.’’

Helen is particularly excited

about her bull in lot 2, which is

‘‘a good home­bred bull’’.

FENCING

28 North Canterbury News, May 27, 2021

Law lays out aprocess to settle

boundary fencing disputes

The installation of property boundary

fences can often cause disputes between

neighbours.

To avoid this, Consumer New Zealand

recommends talking to neighbours

before undertaking any boundary

fencing, and also checking the Fencing

Act 1978 to learn about your rights and

obligations.

‘‘Discuss your plans with your

neighbour before you start putting in the

fence posts though, and keep the

proposal reasonable,’’ aConsumer New

Zealand spokesperson said.

‘‘They are entitled to object if they

disagree about what is appropriate.’’

Generally, if you want to build afence

on acommon boundary with your

neighbour, or upgrade an existing one,

you can expect the neighbour to pay half

the cost for an adequate fence —that is,

one that is reasonably satisfactory for

the purpose it is intended to serve.

However, if you cannot reach agreement,

or your neighbour refuses to pay

half, there is aformal process to follow.

First, you must serve your neighbour

with afencing notice which should

advise that the notice is served under

the Fencing Act 1978.

The fencing notice should also contain

the names and addresses of both you and

your neighbour, and must inform the

recipient that under the act neighbours

share the cost of any fence on the

boundaries between their properties.

If both parties cannot reach an

agreement, the act requires afencing

notice to be served on the owner of the

neighbouring property, outlining details

about the proposed fence.

The fencing notice must also describe:

• Deer

• Horses

• Post Driving

mrsampson@xtra.co.nz

The right fence in the right place ...

need to take the right steps.

The boundary to be fenced, the type of

fence to be built, who will build the

fence, the estimated total cost, how

materials are to be purchased, and the

starting date for work.

The neighbour must also be advised

that they have 21 days to object to any

aspect of the proposal and make any

counter proposals.

If the neighbour does not accept

liability, they must inform you within 21

days the reason why and also supply the

name and address of whoever they

Landowners installing or replacing boundary fences

PHOTOS: FILE

believe is liable for the fencing costs.

Finally, acopy of the fencing notice

must be kept.

It must be signed and dated and

inform the neighbour that if there is no

communication within 21 days from

then, they will be deemed to have agreed

to the proposals and will have to share

the cost.

The fencing notice must then be

delivered to the neighbour in person or

by registered mail.

This is called ‘‘serving notice’’.

On the mark ... The law lays out requirements and processes should disputes arise over

boundary fences.

Vines tackled

by workers

By DAVID HILL

Jobs have been created to help the

environment at Kaikoura.

The Mayor’s Taskforce for Jobs is

funding nine locals to tackle invasive

vines such as old man’s beard and

banana passionfruit around selected

parts of the Kaikoura township over

the next eight weeks.

The opportunity arose when the

Kaikoura Vines Free Project Group,

the Kaikoura District Council and the

Mayor’s Taskforce for Jobs came

together with the common goal of

providing employment while helping

the environment.

Environment Canterbury is

providing training and materials such

as poison gel.

The gel is painted on cleared trunks

to ensure the vines do not grow again.

The Kaikoura District Council is

supplying all the cutting equipment

and Innovative Waste Kaikoura has

offered administration support.

‘‘It’s great to be able to help people

getting employment through the

Mayor’s Taskforce For Jobs and in turn

having them help our environment and

our community. Everyone benefits,’’

Kaikoura Mayor Craig Mackle says.

The group started work on Monday,

May 10, at the bike pump track off

Scarborough Street.

They have now moved on to the area

around Takahanga, with permission

from Te Runanga oKaikoura.

Although the initial jobs are for

only eight weeks, it is hoped that

through the training and experience

gained, full­time employment can be

obtained.

Are you ready to grow?

For real kiwi gardeners who like

to get their hands dirty.

Saracens finish as top qualifier

RUGBY

By LINDSAY KERR and

DAYLE SUTHERLAND

Atry two minutes into injury

time enabled Saracens to

rescuethe top qualifying spot

in the NorthCanterbury pool

of the combined country rugby

competitiononSaturday.

Saracens drew 24­all with

Oxford, leaving the side on the

same points as Kaiapoi, but

with apointsadvantage.

Meanwhile, Kaiapoi finished

the roundbybeating Hurunui

33­10 at home.

Saracens will travel to

Prebbleton for next Saturday’s

quarter final, and Kaiapoito

Springston.

Tightencounter

After Saracens’ impressive

victory the weekbeforeagainst

Glenmark­Cheviot,

expectations in the Rangiora

camp were high for arepeat

performance.

It did not eventuate and,

after adisappointing,

performance Saracens was

lucky to get up for adraw.

Playedinperfectconditions

at Southbrook Park,the super

reliableboot of Ricky Allin got

Saracens away to asolidstart

with two penalties.

Oxfordalso had its early

chances but could not convert

the advantage.

The first try came after25

minutes, when live­wire

Oxfordright winger Rhet

Moore stepped inside a

drifting Saracens defence and

fed the balltoNo. 8Jesse

Houston on the outside to

createanoverlap.

Ten minuteslater, Oxford

went further ahead witha

Dane Paton solo try after he

split the defence.

Beforethe break, Allin

kickedhis thirdpenalty, butit

was the Oxford players who

enjoyed theirorangesmore,

with a17­9lead.

It was only six minutes into

the second spell when Oxford

halfbackMatt Roberts scored

after scuttling around theopen

side of amaul.Roberts duly

converted his own try and the

lead looked ominous for

Saracens.

Strong defence ... Corey Simpson has the ball for Saracens.

The introduction of former

Spanish international Corey

Simpson into theSaracens

midfield 15 minutes from time

helped, and its attacking

efforts began to gain ground.

Two minutes from the end,

Josh Maynard crashed overfor

Saracens and,two minutes into

injury time,Braden Hislop was

ushered overinthe corner to

bringthe scores level. Allin’s

conversion attemptfor victory

was unsuccessful.

The Oxfordeffortwas led by

halfbackRoberts, who was

dangerous aroundrucks and

mauls, and successful when

taking over kicking duties.

JesseBowring, aformer

Saracens player, had auseful

game in the midfield.

While hit by injuries to key

players, Saracens’ performance

was still disappointing.

It was punished for ahigh

errorrate and the backs were

guilty of too muchstatic crossfield

running.

Scoreboard: Oxford 24 (Jesse

Houston,Matt Roberts, Dane

Paton tries. Roberts 3

conversions andapenalty)

drewwith Saracens 24 (Josh

Maynard,BradenHisloptries.

Ricky Allin 4penalties, 1

conversion).

Bonuspoint win

Kaiapoi earned its quarterfinal

spot withahard­earned

33­10 bonus­point victory over

Hurunui.

Hurunuidid the attackingin

the opening exchanges, but put

the firstpointsonthe board

after aKimeonReade

intercept.

The longer the gamewent,

the more the Kaiapoi unit

began to wear its opponents

down. Kaiapoi went to the

break at 21­3and then began to

use its bench.The side scored

two more tries before

Hurunui’s never­give­up

attitude was rewarded witha

Matt Hickey try in the closing

moments.

Ashley arguably held much

of the possession and territory

and was rewarded early with a

try to Anthony Tavendale.

First division teams break losing streak

BothRangiora Hockey

Club’s Division 1teams

broke their losingstreaks

againstMarist last

weekendwith 2­1 wins.

It wasthe first winofthe

season for the Division1

women, and it came against

ateam sitting second on

the table,having lost only

one game so far.

Thiswin will give the

young and improving side

confidence for roundtwo,

which starts in June.

The Rangiora CBK

waited untilapenalty

of its game to snatchawellearned

and valuable win

overMaristMulisha, after

severalunsuccessful

weeks.

In the clashbetween

Rangiora’s two Midweek

Men’s teams,itwas the

underdog Allsorts which

played the better team

gameearly, matching the A

teamgoal­for­goal in the

first quarter. However,

despite the efforts of

Allsorts goal­keeper Daryl

Ball,the Ateam asserted

its dominanceasthe game

progressed, although the

Allsorts created enough

attacking chances and

defended gamely against

its top­of­the­table

opponents to feel

heartened,despite the 8­2

scoreline.

The Rangiora Hurunui

Hares returned to winning

HOCKEY

form in the Mid Week

Women’s Division 1grade,

with acomfortablewin

over HSOB/Burnside.

Hinemoa­Kaiapoi were too

strongfor the Rangiora

Hurunui Hawksinthe

Goals continue to be

hard to come by for the

Rangiora Colts and

Oddfellowsinthe Sunday

RangioraKorimako and

Piwakawaka are scoring

goals in the Sunday

Women’s competitions —

just not as many as their

What’s happening in your

community…

Contractors Shortlisted for Kaiapoi Shovel

Ready Flood Protection

Design is close to complete, consent applications

are lodged and contractors have been shortlisted

as part of an $18m project to reduce the flooding

in Kaiapoi.

Following asignificant flood in 2014, Waimakariri

District Council developed aplan to construct

pump stations and other stormwater infrastructure

in central Kaiapoi to improve drainage and reduce

the impact of flooding.

Theoverall project costisjointly funded from existing

Council budgets($9m)aswell asGovernment 'Shovel

Ready' Projects funding($9m).

Since funding was awarded in August last year the

team have been designing the system, securing

access to construct the pumping stations pipelines,

and are now atthe point where they’re looking to

review and appoint contractors.

Programme Manager Harriette Davies says this is

an exciting step before construction begins.

“We’ve done alot of aprep work up to this point.

It's amajor construction project, so closer to

construction starting, we’re going to hold street

meetings so neighbours know what to expect, work

through the logistics ofparking and access, and

how this really important project for Kaiapoi will

work when it begins to rain”.

Bob Robertson Drive Opening

Residents willbepleasedtosee BobRobertson Drive

open this week connectingRavenswood, Woodend

throughtoSH1 atthe Pegasus roundabout.

Bob Robertson Drive isamajor road in the

development of this large subdivision, which

started in 2016.

The road has been an integral part ofthe overall

master plan for integration with Pegasus, Woodend

and Rangiora and was constructed in sections as

commercial and residential stages were built over

the years.

Gary Stevenson, Council’s Development Manager

says, “This is akey road in this development and

will help direct traffic away from the main routes

through Woodend. It’s great to have this road

opened and we're sure it will be welcomed by

residents across the District.”

Community Board Supports Proposed

Community Hub

Anew community hub is one step closer to being

realised aer the Kaiapoi-Tuahiwi Community

Board approved its location in the Kaiapoi South

Regeneration area, and recommended that

$435,000 be allocated for the project in the

Council’s Long Term Plan.

Assuming the Council approvesand funds theproject,

there will be furtherconsultationwith residents to

shapeits design and operation. Potentialoccupants

include theKaiapoi Croquet Club,Kaiapoi MenzShed

andFood SecureNorth Canterbury.

The Community Board recommended that this

Regeneration area between Charters Street,

Courtenay Drive and Wyber Place be used for a

proposed community hub.

Over recent months, there have been avariety

of concerns raised by nearby residents, including

worries about increased traffic, noise and crime.

However, Board members felt many of their fears

were driven by misinformation deliberately spread

about the project through an anonymous leaflet.

Board Chair, Chris Greengrass was confident that

the Council could work with residents to mitigate

any remaining concerns and achieve agood

outcome for everyone involved.

The project will now beconsidered by the Council at

its Long Term Plan deliberations later this month.
