Methven water concerns

Methven Community Board

member RonSmith has

again raised concerns

about the Methven

reservoir upgrade project.

Speaking at Monday’s

MCB board meeting Mr

Smith said Methven’s water

storagewas not adequate,

and perhaps Ashburton

District Council neededto

look into tapping into awell

instead.

He said in light of recent

heavy floodingitwas time

for council to review all its

options.

Spending $5 millionona

reservoir membrane was a

lot and maybe there were

other options out there,he

said.

Social riding to world champs

have been doing Zwift events which

feature the graphics ­and ascents and

descents ­ofwell­known

international routes. There were

around 150 rides loaded on theapp.

The smart trainermeasured the

powerused by theridersand there

were alsorealracing events such as

bunches, draftingand pack dynamics.

Riders also talked to each other in

real time through messaging apps.

Since joininginMarch 2020,

Templetonhad cycled12daysand 18

11,319km.

‘‘I’ve burnt the equivalentof732

slices of pizza,’’ he said, reading the

data collected from his profile.

The men startedsocially riding as a

way to connect with others during the

early days of covid restrictionsbut the

more fitterthey got, the more

competitive they became, Templeton

said.

Initially they tried to completeeach

route on the programmebut then

opted in on race events.

The Dirty Sprocketsplaced second

in the Asia Pacific division to qualify

for the championships.

It was the culmination of eight

weeksofreal time racing, ridingfor

around 45­minutes and covering

distances between 30 to 40km.The

races took place every Tuesday at

9.30pmdue to the majority of the

other riders being European teams.

involved weight and height

Councillor Liz McMillan

remindedMr Smith that a

new ‘‘super’’ plant idea that

could provide treated

drinking water to residents

on the Methven, Methven­

Springfield, Montalto and

Mt Somers watersupplies

was alsoonthe table as a

possibility.

It was timely to look at

how that was going to work,

she said.

Mayor Neil Brown said it

was the quality not the

quantity of thewater that

had been the issue during

the recent flooding event.

He said although

Methven had aboilwater

TheMethven reservoir

Therecent major flooding in

Rain event1-in-200years forsome

NIWAclimate scientists

preliminary analysis has

found the recent Canterbury

rainfall latelast monthwas so

extreme in some inland places

couldhappen only once every

200 years.

NIWA climatescientistDr

TrevorCarey­Smith said it

was thelongduration of the

rainfall, over more thantwo

days, rather thanthe shortterm

intensitywhich was

exceptional.

Therainevent happened

fromMay 29­31.During that

timeEnvironment

Canterbury’sraingauge near

Mt Somers recorded its largest

48­hourrainfall event

totalling 526mm.Just10km

away,onthe plains the other

sideofMtSomers, another

gauge recorded 310mminthe

same period,also its largest

ever total.

The first analysis of the

rainfall data suggests the

48­hour rainfall totals

recordedatMtSomers,

Geraldineand Snowdon

wouldall be expected on

average only onceevery 200

years.

Theseraingauges span

100km south westtonorth east

in inland Canterbury.

‘‘These results show how

widespread thiseventwas,

although it is interestingto

notethat the most extreme

rainfall only occurred in a

relatively thinstrip alongthe

Canterbury foothills,’’ Dr

Carey­Smith said.

Nearer to the coast, at

placeslike Ashley, Oxford,

Darfield andMethven,the

48­hour rainfall observedwas

lower andreduces the

expectedprobability of the

event occurringtoabout once

in 50 years on average.

Thatdroppedtoonceevery

30 to 40 yearsfor Christchurch

andonce every10years for

Akaroa which recorded

250mm of rainoverthree days

­alarge amountbut not

unusual.

Dr Carey­Smith said the

calculations assumed the

probability of extreme rainfall

hasnot altered duringthe

past, when in reality we

expect thelikelihood of such

eventstoincrease due to

climatechange.

Methven

board want

new plan

Methven Community Board

(MCB) members are keen to

see aformal refresh and

update of Methven’s

strategic plan.

The plan provides

Methven with a‘roadmap' for

the community's direction

and development over the

next few years and was last

updated in 2009.

MCB chairman Dan

McLaughlin said there had

been initial update work

done in 2014 and five years

later alocal strategic plan

had been developed.

Much of the 2019 work was

still relevant today, he said.

‘‘We’ve done alot of work

and spent alot of time on this

plan.

‘‘It was forwarded to

Ashburton council awhile

ago, but nothing has

happened with it.’’

Speaking at Monday’s MCB

meeting, council community

services manager Steve

Fabish said that with growth

in Methven in recent years it

was agood time to look at

updating the strategic plan.

MCB passed amotion

asking council to look at the

strategic plan update and to

offer feedback on it at the

next community board

meeting.

Mid CanterburyCitizens

Advice Bureau (CAB) is

proving its worth in the

community andvolunteers

have fielded266 inquiries

in the firstsix monthsof

operation.

TheCAB office at

Community House Mid

Canterburyopenedquietly

on December 2and is

staffed by arosteredpoolof

21 volunteer bureau

interviewers.

Half of theinquiries

fielded to date havebeen

face­to­faceand the rest via

telephone(40%)and online.

Inquiries arevariedand

volunteers never know

from day to day whatthey

will be asked about.

Co­ordinator Sarah

Clifford said she was proud

of what the CABhad

achieved so far.

Inquiries typically

centred around legal,

finance, benefit, health and

employment issues,aswell

as general community

inquiries.

For face to face inquiries

peoplewere taken into an

interview room and if

further researchwas

needed volunteers would

go next door to search

online.

Mrs Clifford said CAB

wasnon­judgemental and

couldn’t operate without its

very capable volunteers.

The CAB motto,‘Not

sure, ask us’, was fitting

becauseanextensive range

of resources and

informationcouldbe

accessed.

CAB has 85 bureaus

nationallyand auserfriendly

website (cab.org.

nz).

Mrs Clifford said arecent

‘‘mystery shopper’’ from

CAB had had given the

Ashburton bureau abig

quality assurance tick.

She welcomedmore

withtraining,could help

people know and

understand their rights

better.

of Ashburton’s SacredHeart

College has beenproofedand

will soongotoprint.

The book, called Nor’Westers

andPanamas, will be revealed

at reunion over Labour

Weekendthatmarks 50 years

since the college closedits

doors.

The historyinthe book has

beenresearchedand written by

local historian Michael

Hanrahan,while former pupil

Mary Schmack has compiled

the personal storiesand

memories of formerstudents.

Mrs Schmack said the book

was150 pageslong, featured a

lot of photosand would bring

back plenty of fond memories.

Her part of thebookhad been

compiled over afive year

period.

Everyoneattending the

reunion would receive the book

as part of thereunionfee, she

said.

‘‘It is atrip down memory

lanefor former pupils,but it

alsodocumentshistory for

currentandfuture

generations.’’

MrsSchmack said she had

enjoyed her school days.

The nuns from Sisters of Our

Ladyofthe Missions who ran

Sacred Heartwere strict and

expectationsand standards

were high.

Music hadfeatured highly in

the school curriculum and the

nuns had also taught music

privately.

FellowScared Heartpupil

and reunion book committee

member Yvonne Harrison said

she too had fondmemoriesof

her time at the college.

Shehad attended for two

years in the mid 1950s and had

travelled from Methven via

Rakaia each day.

‘‘I’ve still gotmypanamahat

which was part of thestrict

uniformofthe day and I’vealso

stayed in touch with afew

formerschool mates.’’

Mrs Harrison saidshe was

looking forward to the October

reunion and also reading the

book.

SacredHeart College began

lifeinWakanui Road in 1884 as

aprivate girls school.

Reminiscing on their school

days at Sacred Heart are (from

her old school panama, and

Mary Schmack with aproof

copy of the soon to be printed

book.

Ten years later thesizeable

two story building was

relocatedtoasiteonSealy

Street, Ashburton.

One of NewZealand’s first

Montessorischools joined the

site in 1932 and educated both

boys and girls for the next20

years.

With the buildingofalarger

StJoseph’s School in 1952, the

Montessoriand primary

departments were closed and

the school continued as agirls’

secondary college.

The school was demolished

in 1960 and anew single storey

schoolbuilt, which is today

used by theAshburton

Learning Centre.

Nor’Westers and Panamasbook

Riverbed berm vegetation

‘‘Weexpectthat by the end of this

over the same period.

ECan groundwater science

responded to the rainfall. In late May,

many wells were wellbelow average

areas like West Melton, some were at

‘‘In some placesthe water table has

risen by less than ametre, and in

others, more than two metres,| he

said.

While much of therainfall rushed

through the river systems out to sea,

Mr Hanson expected most of the rain

Ashburton Courier, June 17, 2021

CBD work on track

Two milestone events will

happen soon in Ashburton's

central business district (CBD)

as the revitalisation project

and new Ashburton Library and

Civic Centre construction

project progress.

Final finishing on Burnett

Street is expected in the next

few weeks, along with the first

concrete pour of the new

Ashburton Library and Civic

Centre building; significant

landmarks in the life of both

projects.

To give you an idea...the

latter will require the careful

co­ordination of around 70

truckloads of concrete over six

hours and will be the first of

three big concrete pours for the

job.

The CBD revitalisation

project also has many moving

parts.

On the East Street Green,

play equipment is being

installed.

The grass will be resown in

spring, and crews have been

working nights on Burnett

Street to advance the work

there with as little disruption

as possible to users.

Paving of the Havelock

Street/East Street intersection

is also under way, which has

required the temporary closure

of the intersection. New traffic

signals for the Havelock Street

intersection will also be in

place in another few weeks.

The required work at this

intersection has been

undoubtedly disruptive.

9

However, Council is keeping

the intersection open

throughout the planned fourweek

construction period to

help maintain access for

businesses and customers

along East Street.

In July, contractors will be

working east on Havelock

Street, replacing asewer pipe

and installing connections for

the new Library and Civic

Centre building.

These large projects require

contractors to work to specified

plans, work around weather

conditions, and most

importantly, work with

businesses and Council to

mitigate any issues.

It is abalancing act that

requires frequent review

throughout the project to

ensure disruption is limited to

the extent possible.

The rain we received over the

30 May weekend caused adelay

of acouple of days. Still,

Council's contractor Tru­Line

Civil is confident of recouping

that time lost as the project

goes forward.

The completion date remains

towards the end of November

2021.

Gemma tells us that -

For myvolunteer project, Ireally wanted to look at supporting Netherby

School,which is the PrimarySchool Iattended and stilllove.

In an effort togive back tothe students Icame up with the plan to do a

mentoring programme.

Togetherwith six otherYear 13 students,weattend NetherbySchool foran

hourevery Wednesday. Onceatthe school we split ourselves between two

classrooms, with children aged between six to nineyears old.

How wehelp ranges weekly, depending onwhat the teacher wants to

do, and what the specific children

need support in. For me, this project

has been amazing. We are making

connections with students who we

will remember for years to come.

Students who hopefully we are

inspiring to love school, and the

experiencesthatcome with it.

Congratulations

Successful Phoenix Chorus Southern Tour

Phoenix Chorus,our senior choir,has recently returned from their‘Southern

Sojourn’ to Dunedin. This six-day tour (which turned into seven) gave the

choir the opportunitytoparticipate in awidevariety of musical experiences

as well as enjoy the sights and activities thatthe beautiful southerncityhas

to offer. Choral Manager Carolyn Clough, shares their experiences below.

Choir ManagementPersonnel

Thechoir wasled by Angela Cresswell (Musical Director) andCarolynClough

(Choral Manager), and RonCresswell (DeputyPrincipal).

Phoenix Chorus members were – Gianna Butler, Emma Cochrane,

Paulina Cuadrado, Emma-Paige Dickson, Jordis Double, Janelle Galos,

Emily Greer, Amelia Harris, Alice Homer, Zoe Kenny, Charlotte McKenzie,

Ngahuia Maeva, Laura Mihailescu Bogdan, Grace Prendergast,

AnnyaRawlings,LibbyRyan, Sama Sooialo,Joelle Watson.

Carolyn tells usthat they left Ashburton’s sunny blue skies and headed

south on Thursday27May,munching on delicious cookies supplied by Tony

Corbett of SubwayAshburton, and made our waytoMoeraki. Astroll along

the beach in the sunshine gave manystudents the opportunitytotheorise

about the origins of the famous boulders which several people had not seen

before.

During our stay inDunedin, wewere based at the Dunedin Holiday Park.

Afterunpacking and organising arrangements,itwas straightintorehearsal

to preparefor our busy fewdaysahead.

Rehearsal Time

We were very fortunate to have the amazing Dr Jared Corbett with us on

tour.Jared is aformer AshColl studentand member of Phoenix Chorus. With

hiswealth of musical knowledge and skill,Jared is an incredible mentorand

accompanist.

DayTwo

Thefollowing daydawned grey and drizzly (a signofthings to come) but we

had agreat morning in rehearsal beforeheading out to TheRoyal Albatross

Centre on the Otago Peninsula. What atreat! The weather may not have

been pleasantfor humans but it was perfect to bring the albatross parents

in from the seatofeed their chicks.

Following this, wewound our way upthrough the mist to Larnach Castle.

The weather prevented us from exploring the grounds and taking photos

outside but we enjoyed the

stories and sights on the

inside.

Castlewith JaredCorbett

Aconcertinthe ballroom

DevonshireTea was the

perfect waytospend the

afternoon. We took the

opportunitytoshowcase

AliHarper's beautiful

tributetothe victims of

the Christchurch Mosque

shooting and performed

'Release our Love' whichwas

ahuge honour.

DayThree

On Saturday, the morning was spent in a barbershop workshop and

rehearsal with the Dunedin Harmony Chorus which we loved! Then, it was

off to the Dunedin Public Library for aconcert, with abracket from each

choir and finishing with our choirs together singing acapella. ‘CanYou Feel

TheLove Tonight’ from the Lion King wasacrowd favourite.

Chorus. (Pictured front row, left to right): College Chorus members

Sadly, the poor weather cancelled our short excursion and photo

opportunity onthe Ocean Beach Railway but we used the time to have a

rest and catch uponsome homework back at camp. Inthe evening we

celebrated Amelia's birthday bygoing ten-pin bowling, complete with

birthdaycake afterdinner.

DayFour

We had aday to remember on Sunday, for many reasons. Wespent the

morning exploring the Otago Museum including the interactiveexhibits in

Tūharaand the Tropical Rainforest.

Afteragreat lunch in the Museum Cafe,wehad the pleasureofsharing in a

performanceinthe Atrium with the New Zealand RedCross Choir,toalarge

and appreciativeaudience.

Workshop

Then it wasofftothe beautiful St Paul’s Cathedral foranamazing workshop

with Ben Madden, who along with Jared Corbett, isone of New Zealand’s

brightest young talents in choral music! We gained so much from Ben’s

workshop and have brought home anew song which we hope to showcase

at aconcert laterthis year.

turning to our families

and friends in our AshColl

communityback home,where

the flooding had caused a

state of emergencytobe

declared.

Museum

Concert.

DayFive–and then DaysSix and Seven!

On Monday, we decided that when the going gets tough, the tough go

shopping. So, despite the rain, we embarked onashopping trip in central

Dunedin which was agreat success judging by the number of bags that

came back to the bus afterlunch.

We had a very special visit and performance at Montecillo Veterans’

Home and Hospital in the afternoon, where itwas our pleasure toshare a

programme of music with the residents and staff.After our concertwegot to

talk with the residents and so enjoyedtheir advice, insights and reminiscing

about school days and choirs past.

Theweather cancelled our trip to see the Yellow-Eyed Penguins so we opted

for atrip tothe movies in the afternoon. Then, apizza and fish 'n' chip tea

was followed byacrazy Karaoke night, featuring classics from ABBA and

Neil Diamond as well as plenty of big numbers from musicals.

Due tothe flooding with road and bridge closures back home, weopted

to stay for afurther day inDunedin on Tuesday. We made the most of our

final fewhours with Jared and spentsome focused time working on our new

song from our workshop with BenMadden.

After lunch, wetook awalk along the beach from St Kilda toStClair in the

glorious sunshine and enjoyed hot chocolates, coffees and milkshakes on

the esplanade. After an epic spaghetti bolognaise, wehad aquiet night

at camp, hoping that the flood waters would recede and allow ustoreturn

home the following day. Bymorning on Wednesday, it was clear that we

could make it home,although the routechanged several times as roads and

bridges reopened during our journey.

Appreciation

Phoenix Chorus owes an enormous debt of gratitude to many people for

their contribution to making our tour so successful.

Ourthanks go to:

Leen Braam for volunteering his time and skill as our bus driver during the

tour, particularly in such challenging driving conditions; Jared Corbett for

his energy,enthusiasm and wonderful skills as an accompanist and mentor;

Mark Cook from Pearsons Coachlines forhis adviceand guidancetobring us

safely home; the manypeople from our AshColl communitywho supported

our fundraising efforts, particularly those involved in ‘A Concert ofChoirs’;

our families who supported usonthe tour and arrived promptly when we

returned to ensurethateveryone could get homesafely.

Elder

care

hand

Abuse of our elderly folk is

hitting closer to homethan

people think. It may be

hidden in our community, but

it is out there and knows no

socio­economic boundaries. A

display set up by Age Concern

Ashburton in the Ashburton

Arcade this week has arange

of information for people

about Elder Abuse including

endearing power of attorney

processes and support

agencies.

It was set up for World

Elder Abuse AwarenessDay

(June 15) but is in the arcade

all week.

Age Concern Ashburton

president Jan McClelland

said nationally 75 percent of

elder abuse was done by

family members and of those

family members, 59 percent

werechildren and

grandchildren.

Ashburton­based senior

clinical social worker Annie

Hunt said the abuse could

include financial,

psychological or physical

abuse,sexualand

institutional abuse, or even

neglect and anyone

concerned aboutafamily

member, friend or neighbour

could ring Age Concern

Ashburton and makecontact.

People could also call the

office if they wanted to talk to

someone about their

concerns.

Historically Age Concern’s

Elder Abuse services get

around 10 referrals every

working day of older people

facing elder abuseorneglect.

LIVES WORTH LIVING

What afortnight, the South

Island cut in two, land now

river, beloved animals gone,

winter food washed away,

homes flooded, livelihoods

shattered. What has happened

in Canterbury is adisaster, by

definition that means our

normal systems can’t cope and

things have gone wrong. If

things hadn’t gone wrong, then

it would be an event not a

disaster.

As with all disasters we will

learn valuable lesson for the

future. We will also be

reminded that at the end of the

day Mother Nature will decide

what she wants to do despite

any of our interventions.

We know the bad things from

this flood and for some the

reality of this will go on for

months if not years.

Ihave witnessed and been

involved in disasters for most of

my life, they produce some

armchair idiots who selfishly

criticize instead of becoming

part of the solution, fortunately

these few are overpowered by

the good. Over the last two

weeks Ihave heard amazing

humble acts of bravery.

Many people standing in the

middle of their own destruction

have told me of concerns for a

neighbour and when visiting

the neighbour, they have in

turn voiced their concern for

the person Ihad just left.

Ihave seen groups and

individuals work long hours

from, Emergency Services,

Ashburton District Council,

MPI, Rural Support, Civil

Defence, Federated Farmers,

Rural Women, ECAN, Support

Agencies and many, many

others, all concerned about

other people.

Like all of us Ihave also

witnessed strong leadership,

from the mayor, farmers and

Civil Defence. Their public and

local appearances have been

confident and calm.

People from both the country,

town and cities have shown up

at farms wanting to help in any

way they can, willing to pay and

repay to others. Ihave also

witnessed people in all states of

mental confusion and distress

and this will continue for along

time. The good news is both

local agencies and national

groups are aware of this.

Local GPs, already under the

pump, have set up asystem to

deal with flood affected

individuals. CDHB are in

contact with government,

sharing what they know may

come as aresult of experience

with the earthquake and the

Mosque shootings.

Local welfare groups are

being briefed weekly through

the council and aware of the

fact that we are now in a

marathon, not asprint. Now

comes the important part, the

after care. In the last two weeks

welfare groups have visited

most people affected by

flooding but those needs are

changing day by day and will

evolve for along time.

Remember to give 100% we

need to be both mentally and

physically fit ourselves and

sometimes that means getting

help.

Need help:

If you want help please seek it,

there is strength asking for

assistance to cope and to keep

yourself at peak health. Rural

Support, Federated Farmers,

Presbyterian Support, ACADS,

Ashburton Hospital, Salvation

Army, Red Cross, MPI are

available and for practical help

for mental distress, contact your

local GP and state it is flood

related. Or contact 1737 by text

or phone to talk to a

professional, this free service is

available 24 hrs aday. It is

anonymous and you can talk

about your mental distress or

get advice on others that you

may be worried about.

‘‘This lift really changes how

In one of the cases, seven bags of

household rubbish and food waste were

left atthe Fairton recycling depot. The

others involved abag of rubbish left on

Allens Road inAshburton and household

rubbish, including a lounge chair, was

left atthe end of Smyths Road in the

Members of the public are encouraged

to report illegally dumped rubbish.

While Council prefers towork with and

educate offenders rather than hand out

cases where household and garden

rubbish in black refuse bags weredumped

at Fountaines Road, and under the

MethvenCemeteryearlygraves and headstones

getting a'gentle' clean

The lives and times ofearly settlers

buried in the Methven Cemetery are

about to see daylight, thanks to a

special clean-up project by Methven

Lions members, in partnership with

AshburtonDistrictCouncil.

Lions noticed that some of the earlier

graves and headstones inthe cemetery

wereinapoor stateand coveredinlichen

and moss. This has resulted inaneffort

to carefully clean them up in the coming

weeks.

Methven Lion Mac McElwain said atleast

100 headstones were inthe cold part of

the cemetery, adjacent to the Methven

A&P Showgrounds and sheltered by ahigh

hedge.

“Thismeans there’snot muchwind there,

nor sun,”hesaid.

Lionsmembershave regarded this project

as asign of respectfor thoseburied there

who had contributed to Methven inits

early years.

Theyhave been advertising their intended

work in case some of the relatives of

people interred there would prefer the

graves to be leftalone.

The Lions are collaborating with the

Ashburton District Council on theproject:

Council is supplying materials and the

Lionswill do the “gentle” clean.

Mr McElwain said itwas important to

emphasise the word gentle. Many of the

graves were quite old and potentially

fragile.

“This is no place for the actions of a

water blaster or aggressive detergents

and abrasives, so we’ll do agentle spray

with Wet ‘n’ Forget, followed up by hand

removal of dead moss andlichenlater on,”

he added.

The cemetery is one of 16 managed by

Council and has burial recordsdating back

to 1883.

Families who don’t want headstones

cleaned should writetoLions viaemail or

postal mail, stating the numberofthe plot

and the name/s on the headstone, and

they will leave it alone. People have until

July 1toopt outofthe clean.

The club can becontacted onemail at

methvenlions@gmail.com or by post to

Guest speaker to

talk on farm plans

Well­known landscape architect,

Di Lucas, will presentatalk at

the Sinclair Centre on Tuesday

June 22. Her particular interest is

planning for farms and other

rural land management.

Herteam takes into account the

land’s inherent characteristics,

vegetation, production goals and

management options.

She will talk on Integrated

Farm Plans (IFP), which address

greenhouse gasemissions,

freshwater quality, indigenous

biodiversity, and thelandscape

associated with individual farms

and catchments. Theirplans

respond to theunderlying natural

and cultural diversity of Aotearoa

NZ –the great biophysical,

historic andsocial variation that

we see in ourcountry, which has

been described as the “land of

little landscapes”.

Thecurrent farmregime is first

identified and mapped, the

emissions calculated,then

alternative land­use and

management options are

explored to transition production

toward net Carbon Zero, healthy

ecosystems, and sustainable

landscapes. Dairy, sheep and

beef, andhighcountry farms are

being addressed in terms of farm

production from “cradle to farm

gate”.

Landscape architect Di Lucas will

present atalk in Ashburton this

Tuesday.

Thefarm plans provide

guidance on reducing or

mitigating effects, and allow for

adaptation to increasing

environmental pressures.

Greenhouse gas emissions that

cannot be avoided are addressed

through insetting,thatis, on­farm

works, not offsetting them

elsewhere.

Thetalk at the Sinclair Centre

is hosted by the Ashburton

branch of Forestand Bird and the

begins at 7.30 pm.

Thursday,

8:15am -1:30pm

annual day was during the time of

Matariki and there were many

volunteers around the district who

were “stars in our eyes”.

She is calling for all business,

organisations, groups, clubs and

people in their homes to showtheir

support for the volunteers among us

by putting starsintheir windows, or

doors. There would also be adisplay

set up in the Ashburton

Library.

It’s timeto celebrate the

2392383

community and recognise

peoplewho volunteer.

“Thankstoevery person

whovolunteers. Theymake a

difference in ourcommunity,

she said.

Volunteers help out in

many different roles around

the district and many aspects

of our society could not

function without their

volunteers, she said.

Thereisalistofvolunteer

roles,incategories, which

need filling on the

Volunteering Mid and South

Canterbury new website.

Of late theyhave included

people helping with floodstrickenareas

of Mid

Canterbury whichhave seen

people come together to help

farmers and landowners clear

debris strewn areas of land.

There have also beengifts of

baking and home care parcels,

she said.

“It’s amazing, everybody has

steppedup,” she said.

Over the pastyear, the face

of volunteering nationwide

had changedasmany older

folk notreturning to volunteer roles

post covid lockdown.

Nationalvolunteer weekhonoured

the collective energies and manaof

all volunteers in New Zealand and

wasachance to reimagine what

volunteering would look like in the

future.

In Mid Canterbury there were more

menvolunteering, as wellasmore

youngerpeople, shesaid.

Therewere also more people

seeking short­term or one­off

volunteer roles, suchasPoppyFlight

knitters, or those knitting RedCross

trauma teddy bears.

“People juststep up as well (when

needed)aswehave seen,” she said.

They were roles people could do in

their own homes andpeople were

looking for those roles they coulddo

if covid returned.

More than one million people

nationwide identified as

volunteering for an organisation

which contributed around$4billion

to the economy.

Therewas more happeningwithin

communitiesand between people,

and increasingly in different ways.

While the landscape of

volunteering was changing and

presentedsome challenges, it also

highlighted unique opportunities for

reshaping and improving the

practice of volunteering.

People were encouragedto

celebrate National Volunteer Week ­

the community full of volunteers ­

and share stories of volunteering, as

wellashelp reshapemahi arohafor

the future.

“We are always on thelookout for

more stars, the sky is not full,”Miss

Volunteering

to help the

community

AngelaCushnie is a

community­mindedperson

who enjoys seeing the

difference her volunteering

makes to those around her.

She has been volunteering

“for as long as Ican recall”

which started with beinga

delegate for Hinds hockey.

“We grew up in acommunity

where mum and dad were very

involved and Ibelieve it is a

natural progression in terms

of accepting that it is now our

turn to service the community

we live in,” she said.

She volunteers with Kanuka

Mid Canterbury Regeneration

Trust,Ashburton Water Zone

Committee, the Hinds Reserve

Board,Parent to Parent

Support as well as catchment

groups.

And whileshe is usually

shoulder tapped and asked to

help out for most roles, in the

case of the Kanuka Trust she

said it was aconscious

decision.

“I saw the needand decided

to make it happen.That was

big!”

“If our communities thrive

so too do our people,soIsee it

as alegacy for future

generations to benefit from,”

she said.

Whilevolunteering was

important, Angela learned

earlyonthat it was more

important to focus energy on

things that were important to

her.

“I do say no. Ilearned that

earlyon,” she said.

“Otherwise if Ispread

myself too thin Iamless

effective.”

“Everybody’s time is

valuable and many hands

make light work so we have to

sharethe load,”she said.

Angela Cushnie says volunteering is about leaving alegacy for future generations.

Friendship Club

Alister wrote aquizwhich

Errol compered. The“Dumb

Questions” section was

certainly achallenge butthere

were also comments like “Why

didn’t we think of that?” when

the answers were revealed. The

general knowledge questions

were wide ranging and most of

us fared better, but there were a

few “It’s on the tip of my tongue

moments”.

Our main speaker was local

“Rock Hound” Malcolm Luxton.

He became interested in the

wide variety of stonesfound on

local beaches so joined the

Christchurch Lapidary Club in

his late teens beginning a

lifelong interest in agates.

Malcolm gave abrief

geologicalhistory of Mid

Canterburyover thelast 90

million years when New

Zealand was part of Gondwana

Land. These days NZ is

consideredtobepartof

Zealandia which is an undersea

continentwith only the NZ land

mass abovethe sea. In the

distant past Mt Somers was part

of an active volcanic zone which

extended from the Rangitata

gorge to Malvern, north of the

Rakaia. Agates were formed

from thebasaltic lava produced

by volcanic eruptions. Gas

bubbles in themolten lava

formed cavities and over

geological timedissolved

minerals found ways into the

cavities and crystallised. The

volcanic rock was broken up by

the iceages anderosion giving

the agates found rivers and

beaches today. Petrified wood

and fossils are alsofound. The

tidal drift is from south to north

so much interesting material is

deposited on Birdling’s Flat.

The recent floods will have

uncovered alot of agate

material.

Malcolm’s interest has been

in collecting agates and

unlocking their beauty by

cutting andpolishing for

display. He explained this

process andthe machines used

and broughtalong some display

examples. He has aprivate

museum, which can be visited

by arrangement, displaying the

agates he hasprepared,

includingasphere. He is akeen

photographer of agatesand

some years ago published a

coffee table style book on NZ

agates. He gaveanoutline of the

self­publishing process and

explained that it gavethe

author much more control of the

book.
