Flood fund

in the

spotlight

The Government’s package of $500,000 to help

floodstricken farmers in Canterburyis

inadequate,says Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon.

He has asked the Governmenttoconsiderafar

more substantial packagetohelp those in ‘‘real’’

need acrossthe Canterbury region.

Mr Gordon met withacting Ministerfor

Emergency Management KrisFaafoi last week to

express concerns on behalf of property ownersin

the district followingthe flood event.

He told Mr Faafoi when damagetoproperty in

the Waimakariri District was put alongside

damage in the Ashburtonand Selwyn Districts,

the sum announcedtohelp peopleget back on

theirfeet, was not sufficient.

He also pointed out the package didn’t provide

anything for lifestyle block owners affected by the

floods, of which there are many in the

Waimakariri District.

‘‘Sincethe flooding Ihave talked with farmers

and residents of Lees Valley, residentsofaffected

flooding areasofOkuku and surrounding areas,

and have agood understanding of theissues they

face trying to get back on theirfeet,’’MrGordon

says.

In LeesValley thereare significant areasof

fencing where the insurance cover is minimal,

comparedtothe loss.

‘‘I have been made awareofone casewhere the

fencing alonewouldlikely absorbthe total

$500,000 package.’’

Thereare some lifestyle propertiesinthe

Okukuarea facingsimilarhardship having lost

fencing and other assets which wereswept away

by floodwaters.

‘‘Insurance coverisminimal compared to the

loss,especiallywhen it comes to fencing, andthey

face considerable cost puttingitback,’’MrGordon

says.

Therehas also been landloss whererivers had

changed courseand gonethrough properties. Mr

Gordon says it is too early to know thelasting

effect of this, but the Earthquake Commissionand

insurance companies were unlikely to respond

and help peopleinthese circumstances.

‘‘Peopleare worried about their future andhow

they can afford to getback intothe sameposition

they were before the floods.’’

Hurunui’sheritage restored

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Hurunui’s heritage is in safe hands.

Alovingly restored home near

Culverden, and aforestry lookout

atop arocky bluff in the Hurunui

Hills, carried off trophies at the

Canterbury Heritage Awards last

week.

Dave and Jo McKenzie from

Montrose Station, Culverden, were

joint winners in the Domestic Saved

and Restored category, while the

Hawarden Waikari Lions were joint

winners in the public Realm Saved

and Restored category.

Each received aNeil Dawson

trophy. Mr Dawson is aprominent

New Zealand sculptor who has

exhibited internationally, and

crafted many fine commissioned

works. The Lookout was equal first

with the Christchurch Arts Centre.

Hurunui Mayor, Marie Black, who

helped drive the project, says this

showed ‘‘just how amazing’’ the

award was.

The Domestic Saved and Restored

Award is reward for several years of

planning and careful negotiation of

red tape by the McKenzies to rebuild

their 1913 Montrose Station

homestead, near Culverden, after the

devastation of the 2016, 7.8

magnitude earthquake centred on

Waiau.

It wrecked havoc in North

Canterbury, Kaikoura and beyond,

and destroyed parts of the homestead

designed by architect Cecil Wood at a

time when he was considered the

leading domestic architect in

Canterbury. The family and their

three children have only been back in

their home ayear, with the

intervening time spent making

decisions around the rebuild, how to

manage it and meeting the Historic

Places Trust’s criteria for the

Category 2building.

Fireworks decision ‘responsible’

By SHELLEY TOPP

AWaimakariri District councillor is

heartened by The Warehouse’s decision

to stop selling fireworks.

‘‘It is the right move,’’ Paul Williams

says.

He now wants to see fireworks

restricted to public displays because of

the potential of fireworks to cause fires

to homes and properties, and cause

distress, pain and even death to animals.

In 2018 Waimakariri District Council

staff were asked to investigate whether

it was possible to ban, or at least limit,

the sale of fireworks in Waimakariri and

only have public fireworks displays,

after Cr Williams raised the issue.

‘‘I am pleased that The Warehouse is

acting in aresponsible way by now not

selling this product,’’ he said.

‘‘Other retailers now need to follow

this action.’'

‘‘I found that the council could not

implement abylaw,’’ he says.

Paul Williams

Cr Williams says while most families

act responsibly with their fireworks,

others don’t.

‘‘I had ratepayers relaying stories of

sky rockets being let off from moving

cars aimed at houses.

‘‘My father was avolunteer fireman

and Ialso saw the strain this put on our

already very busy fire service.’'

Cr Williams says he has support from

the SPCA and other groups to stop the

sale of fireworks to the public.

‘‘However Isupport public displays

that are displayed in asafe way in which

people can get the information required

to keep their pets safe and the fire

service can have asay on the

conditions.’’

The Warehouse chief product officer

Tania Benyon said when making the

announcement about the decision to end

the sale of fireworks, that it came after

feedback from customers.

‘‘While many are supportive of public

fireworks displays to mark special

events across the year, Guy Fawkes has

become less of an occasion, and there

are clear concerns about people letting

off fireworks at home.

‘‘In line with that response we no

longer feel fireworks have aplace on our

shelves.’'

Home and lookout preserve Hurunui history

From Page 1

‘‘All plans had to go throughthem(the

Historic Places Trust), for approval

which added another six months to

rebuild.

‘‘Meanwhile we lived in the90

square metre shearers quarters,

compared to our 600 square metre

house,’’ saysJo.

Someparts of the home were

repaired, some demolished and then

rebuilt.

The architects for the project,

Wilson andHill, ensured much of the

original timberand brick construction

was retained, with many original

features skilfully reintegrated.

Jo saysitisahuge thrill to be back in

their home.

The Hawarden Waikari LionsClub

Personal journey ignites passion

By DAVID HILL

Following her family’s legacy led to a

Queen’s Birthday Honour for Kaikoura’s

Gina Solomon.

Ms Solomon was made aMember of

the New Zealand Order of Merit (MNZM)

for services to conservation and

governance.

‘‘I was pretty blown away by it. You

don’t expect those things to happen and

then it does.

‘‘I’ve been involved in anumber of

different committees over the years in

that conservation and environment

space and I’ve had some wonderful

opportunities to go to some great places

and meet some great people.’’

Growing up at Oaro, south of

Kaikoura, she gained apassion for

conservation, following afamily legacy.

‘‘My father fished with my grandfather

and that’s where my grandmother’s

people are from, so it’s been apersonal

journey of trying to carry­on their good

work to ensure it continues to feed us.

‘‘I don’t fish myself, but it’s about

looking after that place for the next

generation and the one after that.’’

After living and working in

Wellington, Ms Solomon returned home

to Kaikoura in 1993 and was keen to

reconnect with her iwi.

She was appointed secretary of the

local Kaikoura runanga and began

tagging along with her mother, Darcia

Solomon, to various hui, including the

Nelson Marlborough Conservation

Board.

Her mother had replaced her uncle as

the Ngai Tahu representative on the

Queen’s Birthday honour ... Gina

Solomon was surprised to be awarded an

MNZM.

conservation board ‘‘and she wanted me

to take her place one day’’.

‘‘I tagged along with her to various hui

over the years and Iended up being her

driver and then Igot thrown in the deep

end, so Idid my best to try to swim.

‘‘I’ve been very lucky at having good

people around me, including close

family and friends who have given me

advice so it’s not just recognition for me.

‘‘You don’t really do anything without

the people who stand with you.’’

Ms Solomon has served 14 years on the

conservation board and as chairperson

since 2017, but will step down later this

month.

She continues to be involved in Te

Korowai oTeTai oMarokura as

secretary and administrator and is a

Kaikoura Marine Guardian.

Te Korowai was instrumental in

advocating for the establishment of

Kaikoura’s marine protection

legislation, while the guardians were

established to monitor the marine

reserve.

Her passion for conservation has also

led to involvement in the QEII National

Trust Board, the Nature Heritage Fund,

the Molesworth Steering Committee, the

Forestry Ministerial Advisory Group,

the Hutton’s Shearwater Charitable

Trust and the Kaikoura Zone

Committee.

‘‘I really enjoyed my time on the QEII

trust. Ihad the opportunity to share my

iwi values. Being the only Maori on the

trust board at the time, it was important

to share that.

‘‘I got to go all round New Zealand and

see what people are doing. Iwent to

some special places and Igot to hold a

kiwi and agiant weta and had all sorts of

wonderful experiences that you don’t

always get to see. I’ve been very, very

lucky.’’

George and his gumboots conquer 100km

By SHELLEY TOPP

BayleysRangiora real estate agentGeorge

last Mondayafter raising more than

$20,000for theNorthCanterbury Rural

SupportTrust.

George ran 100 kilometres,from The

Peaks, in Hawarden, to Christchurch,in

his gumbootsonThursdaylast week to

supportthe trust’s work.

‘‘I grew up on aNorth Canterbury farm

and understand that farming can be

extremely toughattimes,’’ he said. ‘‘The

suiciderate for farmers is 1.5 times the

New Zealand average so theyneed all the

supportwecan give them.’’

The run took George 12 hours and 15

minutestocomplete.

‘‘I am stokedabout the money we raised

which was more than double what Ihoped

for. Iamreallygrateful to all the people

who supported me and madedonations,’’

he said. ‘‘I had alot of support and it

worked out really well.’’

The North Canterbury Rural Support

TrustchairGayle Litchfield said she was

in awe of whatGeorgehad achieved for

the trust.

‘‘What aremarkable young man he is.

We were at the finish line along with his

colleagues to cheer him in and the feeling

was one of sheer amazement that he was

stillsmiling at the end of his challenge.

‘‘We would liketothank hismum and

the rest of his support crew for the role

they playedtoo. Iamsure he would agree

he would not have beenable to do it

without them.’’ The money raisedwill go

towards helpingthe trustprovide

additionalwellbeing support to the

farming community.

George established aGivealittle page

donations to the fundraiser and by last

Ice life. .. Kaiapoi photographer and filmmaker Anthony Powell in Antarctica, the subject of his multi­award winning film Antarctica: A

Year on Ice which will be screened at the Rangiora Town Hall cinemas this August.

Frozen continent, raw and pristine

By SHELLEY TOPP

AKaiapoi photographer and film

maker’s multi­award­winning

documentary Antarctica: AYear on Ice,

is to be screened in Rangiora.

Anthony Powell's film had its world

premiere at the New Zealand

International Film Festival in

Christchurch during July 2013.

But renewed interest in it, and

interest from school principals, means it

will screen in Rangiora later this year.

Anthony made his first trip to

Antarctica in 1997 and has now spent

about 10 years, off and on, on the Earth’s

southernmost continent.

‘‘It took afew years of experimenting

with cameras to get things that would

actually work in the cold of winter, then

afew more to build up the footage,’’ he

said.

‘‘I had not seen anything that Ithought

really captured the experience from the

point of view of the everyday worker, or

what it is like to spend the winter there

isolated from the rest of the world, so

once Ihad most of the scenery shots, I

concentrated on filming that story for a

couple of years.’’

Curiosity, and asense of adventure,

made him want to visit the frozen

continent.

‘‘I wanted to shake things up abit from

my usual job.’’

Originally he worked as

telecommunications worker, looking

after the phone, radios, satellite gear

and other electronics. ‘‘Now Iwork as a

full­time documentarian, filmmaker,

photographer, and multi­media

creator.’’

The cleanness, untouched by humans,

is the thing he finds most extraordinary

about Antarctica.

‘‘Anywhere else in the world, even in

national parks, way off the beaten track,

you still see signs of human activity,’’ he

said.

‘‘Once you get away from the bases in

Antarctica it is still raw and pristine.’’

Anthony has seen ashift in culture

towards putting alot more effort into

making sure Antarctica remains as

clean, and as untouched as possible.

‘‘But also the effects of climate change

are becoming more and more apparent,’’

he says.

The owner of Rangiora Town Hall

Cinemas, Jeremy Stewart, is offering a

discounted ticket price for school

groups to the film on Monday, August 30,

Tuesday August 31 and Wednesday

September 1, all starting at 10am.

Anthony will do aQ&A session after

the film at each screening.

Funding nets results

Funding from Fonterra is supporting the

protection and enhancement of one of the

lastremaining coastal bush scarp wetlands

in the South Island.

The Hailes family farm just north of

Kaikoura boasts uninterruptedviewsofthe

SeawardKaikoura Ranges on one side, and

on the other, vast ocean.

Castyour eyesdownwardand nestled at

the bottomoftheirdriveway is one of

Canterbury’s best examples of acoastal

bushscarp wetland, and one of the last

remaining in the South Island.

The farm is home to the Hapuku Scarp

wetland, totaling more than10hectares.

It is the largestremaining freshwater

palustrine wetland (fed by rain,

groundwater,orsurface water) in the area

and hosts someofNew Zealand’s

southernmost tawa and black maire trees.

Neighbour Richard Howard sharesthe

wetland and wasalso quick to recognise its

significance, fencinghis part of the wetland

manyyears ago.

Bothlandowners havebeen proactive in

protecting the wetlands and overland flows

intothe wetland,fencing off several

overland flow paths and critical source

areas. Asignificantcontribution from the

Fonterra Sustainable Catchment Fund has

ensuredthe wetland is protected from

stock.

Thishas enabled theHailes, who

specialise in dairy,deer and tourism, to

increase fence setbacks(the distance

between the waterwayand the fence) to the

wetland, and upgrade fencing on the scarp

to make it more resilient to floodsand

heavy rain.

Bernard Hailes saysthe funding from

Fonterra has enabled them to completely

fence the last long stretch of their wetland,

helpingtoprotect the natural taonga.

‘‘The fencing means the natural beautyof

the wetland will be fullyprotectedand it

LONG TERM PLAN (LTP) 2021 -2031

The Council's LTPisnow available forpublic consultation.

Thisisthe Council’s first LTP plan since2015. The years following the

earthquakes have been HUGE! Now, withasuccessful Council $40million

InfrastructureRebuild project behindusit’stimetolookatthe future.

The Earthquake Rebuild has effectively renewed or replaced key

assets that were at the end of their expected life or otherwise

compromised. There is no major expenditure required on

Council owned infrastructure assets (more info on

assets below) over the next 20-30 years (other than

roads) and no major growth-related projects

needed for at least ten years.

Last year becauseofCOVID-19 we reduced the rates increase from

10% to 4%. We know our community still faces economic

uncertainty so we are working with a'no frills' budget. TheCouncil

is focusing on delivering affordable, fit-for-purpose services and

infrastructure upgrades that servethe community now and in the

future.

Using what we know about our infrastructure, and taking on board

what our community is tellingus, we have identified anumber of

priority areas that we want to focus on. If all of theproposals

in the LTP go ahead, it would mean an annual average rates

increase over ten years of 3.4%. (5.2% this year)

HAVE YOUR SAY ONTHE PROPOSALS...

1-ROADS

Spend $4.997 million on road reseals and renewals

to address abacklog - mostly inrural areas.

2-FOOTPATHS

afurther $100,000 each year to upgrade footpaths

Bite-sizedslicesoffarming life in NC

By DAVID HILL

Five North Canterbury rural businesses

feature in anew book.

Launched at the West Eyreton Hall on

Friday evening, Waimakariri­based

rural journalist Tim Fulton’s new book,

Kiwi Farmers’ Guide to Life,features 25

‘‘bite­sized’’ chapters telling the stories

of New Zealand farmers and their

families.

‘‘I was able to cover all sorts of

farming operation types and people

from all over the country,’’ Tim says.

‘‘I’ve set it out to make it chunky, with

bite­sized chapters, so it’s something

you can pick up and just dip into the

chapters.’’

He began the project last year, on the

eve of lockdown, which caused an

immediate rethink.

‘‘I was just about to get going and then

we had lockdown, so Iended up doing a

lot of phone calls and emails to farmers

around the country, and when I

eventually got to go and see them, it was

like Iwas bolting in and getting what

information Icould, knowing Imay only

get to visit them once.’’

Five North Canterbury families made

it into the book, including Tim’s

neighbours Alan and Margo Vliet

Vlieland of West Eyreton.

The couple migrated to New Zealand

from the Netherlands in the 1990s and

have gone on to breed Clydesdale horses

and compete in ploughing matches with

the Clydesdales.

Margo fell in love with the Clydesdale

after seeing them at the Canterbury A&P

Show, with Alan later training as an

equine dentist in the United States.

Chapter one is Andy Fox of Foxdown

at Scargill, in the Hurunui district.

‘‘It’s the classic tale of an intergenerational

dry land family farm,’’ Tim

says.

‘‘Andy is areal contributor in his

community and he’s areally interesting

guy. He has his own museum of vintage

cars and classic cars, and one car had its

origins in the Al Capone era in the 1930s.

‘‘And he has tales of how people have

farmed over the years.’’

Tracey Topp grew up in asheep

farming family at Cust and now runs

Cosy Toes at Rotherham selling Merino

clothing and created the We Love NZ

Wool social media campaign.

The Brothers Green features in a

chapter, telling of family ties to the

Culverden area and the story behind

establishing the hemp growing and

retail business.

Leighton and Jane Croft are sheep and

beef farmers at Omihi, north of Waipara,

and have hosted the Omihi Trailbike

fundraiser for their local school on the

farm.

‘‘These were people Ithought Iknew,

but now Iknow them aheck of alot

better,’’ Tim says.

Kiwi Farmers’ Guide to Life: Rural

tales from the heartland by Tim Fulton

has been published by Bateman Books

and is on sale at bookstores for $39.99.

hit the shelves written by local author and

concert in the Rangiora

Methodist Church on Sunday,

June 27, to celebrate winter

and Matariki (the Maori New

``There is amixture of

``A variety of styles

ranging from show music,

swing style, traditional

choral, carols, to a

performed an informal

concert for ‘‘Family and

Friends’’ last December.

``This replaced our usual

Christmas Concert,’’ Merle

said.

``We also performed for

rest homes and acommunity

service group.''

This year the choir has also

performed another ‘‘Friends

and Family’’ concert

comprising Easter music.

``Our ‘Friends and Family’

concerts have been well

supported and thoroughly

enjoyed,’’ Merle said.

The choir will also perform

aChristmas concert this year

at the end of November.

Since the choir resumed

after lockdown it has

experienced steady growth

and now comprises agroup of

thirty­plus singers.

``We are afriendly,

welcoming group of all ages

who enjoy our singing and

socialising,’’ Merle said.

``Our choir includes at

least six members over

eighty, which proves how

good singing is for health and

wellbeing, physically and

socially.’’

New members are always

welcome, especially men

able to sing tenor or bass.

``Please support our

concert and if you are a

singer come and join us in

August after the choir has

taken awinter break,’’ Merle

said.

The concert starts at 2pm

and is suitable for all ages.

Tickets can be purchased

at the church door before the

Youth council wants to

change skate park vibe

Ayouth­led project at Rangiora’s Dudley

Park has been given the green light.

The Rangiora­Ashley Community

Board has given its approval for concept

plans to create amore communityfriendly

space alongside the Dudley Park

skate park.

The project has been led by the

Waimakariri Youth Council, which has

been working alongside the council’s

greenspace to look at how the park can be

made more inclusive for more people.

‘‘The youth council has done afantastic

job bringing everyone’s ideas together

and the new features will create agreat

area for all to enjoy,’’ board chairperson

Jim Gerard says.

The idea was proposed by the youth

council in response to reports of antisocial

behaviour.

The Waimakariri District Council set

aside $20,000 from its 2019/20 annual

plan.

The board’s approval of the plan allows

the youth council to seek external

funding to fund its $40,000 budget.

The first feature to be installed will be

an ‘activation platform’, with plans to

install mounded seating, children’s play

equipment, apicnic table and a

volleyball net.

Once the project is completed, staff

will work with the youth council to carry

out surveys to see if the additional

features are successful in making amore

youth and community­friendly space.

Council staff are keen to see which

features are successful so that they can

be utilised in other public spaces across

the district.

New exhibition saving

art from rubbish skip

By SHELLEYTOPP

Anew exhibitioninRangiora’sChamber

Gallery is saving‘incredible’ art from

the rubbish skip.

The Uncovering HiddenTalent

exhibition, in Rangiora’s Chamber

Gallery, showcases the work of

Canterbury secondary schools’ Year

11­13 senior visualartists.

The work is part of afree initiative

launched in 2018 by the Creator’s Room,

to connectsenior visual artists in

Canterbury secondary schools with the

community of collectors.

One of the instigatorsofthe Creator’s

Room, Sophie Paterson, of

Christchurch, who established the

onlinegallery with Charlotte Sherratt,

of Ashburton, said incredible art work

was created at secondary schoollevel,

but more often than not thosestudentart

foliosended up either in adeep, dark

corneroftheir parents’ garage or in the

schoolrubbish skip.

‘‘We wanted to provide options for

these students to showcase their work,’’

Sophiesaid.

‘‘We provide upfront financial

support, through the purchase and

professioal framingofthe original

artworks and fundthe reproductionof

their limited­edition prints,’’ she said.

‘‘The artworksare then made

available to the collectors throughour

gallery online and annual exhibition,

with acommission of all sales going

directly to the artists.’’

The initiative overcomes anumber of

obstacles facing students endeavouring

to publiclyshowcase their artwork.

‘‘Our secondary school art students

often lack confidence, resources and

funding to createand present theirwork

on aprofessional level and have limited

ways of marketing themselves and

connecting with the widerarts

community,’’Sophiesaid.

The Creator’s Room also awards an

annualscholarship of $3000 to one of the

students taking part in the initiative,

once they leavethe school environment,

to help support the development of their

artistic career.

The scholarship winner is selected by

an independent judging panel

consisting of practising artists and art

experts.

Two former scholarship winners,

Emma Patmore and Jack Williams have

artwork in this exhibition.

The UncoveringHidden Talent

exhibition opened on Sunday and ends

on July 8.

cancelleddue to Covid­19.

This year’s show,anupdated version of

Shakespeare’s AMidsummer Night’sDream

­Rewritten will be performed in the

Rangiora Town Hall from July 14 to 17.

Show director Paul Johnsonhas added

his own twisttoascriptwritten by school

directorDale Hartley­Brown more thana

decade ago.

‘‘When Ifirst wrote it more than 10 years

ago Irememberthinking about whatthe

characters weretryingtosay and being

conscious of makingsure it was

appropriate formystudents to say on stage.

‘‘Andthen this time, while there’s

nothing particularly rude, therewas alot of

things the guys aresaying to the girls and

that the girlswere wishingfor that just

aren’t quite right anymoreand Iwantmy

girlstobeconfident. So Ithink it’sreally

interestingjust how muchthingshave

changed,even in the last 10 years.’’

Whilethe lineshavechanged,Dale says

the story stays truetothe original

characters.

The well­knowncharacters include the

fairyking Oberon (playedbyDaniel Lees)

and the fairy queenTitania(Iona Main),

Oberon enters the stageonhis

skateboard and his fairy followers are

Bull prices disappoint

North Canterbury’s recent drought has

taken its toll,with prices down at the first

bull sales in the region.

Pricesatthe annualRichon /Beechwood

/Woodburnon­farm saleatBalcairn, near

Amberley, and the Grassmere /Riverlands

J/Capethorne sale heldnear Cheviot last

Thursday were welldownonrecentyears.

RichonHerefordstud owner Rob Stokes

says the combination of an uncertain

marketand the recentdroughtappear to

have had an impact.

‘‘I can’tnail exactly what it is, but we just

didn’thave the under­bidders on the day.

Everyone’s bulls have come throughthe

drought prettywell, but you just never

know withbull sales.’’

‘‘It was goodlast year, but the calf market

was also strong. Whereasit’s adifferent

marketthis year withabit of uncertainty.

Sheep are doingall right, but beef needs to

pick up.’’

The top price for aRichonbull on the day

was just $6000,with ‘‘a few passes’’, while

the Burrows family’s Beechwood Hereford

stud topped the sale with $10,000.

Richonand Beechwood were forced to

withdraw their Herefordcows from the

sale after the recentflood event damaged

roads and bridges, restricting accesstothe

Stokesfamily’s LeesValley property,near

Oxford.

Selling was just as tough up the road at

Domett, near Cheviot,with Grassmere

Herefords selling 11 of its 16 Hereford bulls

for an averagepriceof$6545.

Livestock firms join forces

Livestockbroking firms Hazlett and Peter

Walsh &Associates(PW&A) are joining

forces to become abroader, South Islandwide

Hazlett will acquire all of PW&A’s

operations on July 1, except for Peter

Walsh &AssociatesFinance (PWAF),

which Peter Walsh will retain.

All PW&A team members have been

offered positions and, other than everyone

wearing the Hazlett shirts, things are

expectedtorun as they are with no

disruption.

The billing systems used by both

companies will remain as they are, and

clients will continue to deal with the same

people they are dealing with now.

PW&A wasestablished nearly 20 years

ago and has grown to provide services to

South Island farmers.

Succession planning by Peter and

Karen Walsh,and the PW&A Board,

identified Hazlettasbeingthe company

which is closest in culture and best placed

to build on what the team has achieved

over the years.

Hazlett chairman Graham Brown says

his company and PW&A already know

each otherwell, having jointlydeveloped

and operatedthe Coalgate Saleyards.

we already work well together and

we are going to build on that for our

Baptism of fire for new leader

By DAVID HILL

Caroline Amyeshas had an eventful

first month in her new roleasafarming

leader.

TheFederated Farmers North

Canterburypresident is hoping her trip

to NationalFieldays at MysteryWeek

this week will give her the chance to

‘‘refocus’’ after her ‘‘baptismoffire’’ in

respondingtothe recent flood event.

‘‘It’s beenaninterestingfirst month.

The Federated Farmers team has been

awesome in the support they’ve

provided and we’ve been working

closely with the Mid­Canterbury and

SouthCanterbury provincial presidents,

so there’s been plentyofsupport.’’

Like Ms Amyes, South Canterbury

president Greg Andersonwas only

elected last month.

Despite the challenges of her first

month, she has no regrets.

‘‘These things never happenatthe

most convenient time,but (immediate

past president)Cam [Henderson] and

the restofthe exechave beenawesome.

If the wholeexec had changedatonce it

wouldhave beenadifferent story.

‘‘I really like helpingpeople and

providingsupport, so I’ve just been

trying to do that and Ihope it’s

beneficial.’’

Whilepeopletend to run on

adrenalineinresponding to a

significantnaturalevent, the recovery

phasecan be more taxing on people, she

says.

‘‘Farmers are really good at reaching

out and supporting each other. These

events happen and thenitkind of falls

out of the newscycle,but these guys are

on theirfarms whichare still not fully

functioningand they’re having to deal

with it everyday.’’

Ms Amyes is particularly concerned

for drylandfarmers in NorthCanterbury

BayBlenders

who havebeen dealing with the long

drought and now have had winter crops

destroyed and fences wrecked, which

can takea‘‘massive toll’’ on finances,

relationships and mental health.

‘‘I want people to have the confidence

to reach out to me for help and support.

Even if Idon’thave the expertise, Ican

put them on to someone else.’’

Varied career leads to NZPork

By DAVID HILL

Maitland Manning has made

the switch from sheep and

cowstopigs.

After avariedcareer, which

has included roles with

DairyNZ and Beef +Lamb

New Zealand (BLNZ), Mr

Manning joinedNZPork as

nationalindustrysupport

manager based in

Christchurch last month.

Mr Manninggrew up on a

sheep, beef, cropping and

Clydesdalefarm in the

Wairarapa, completing a

science degree at the

University of Canterbury.

Since then he has workedin

project management roles for

DairyNZ and the former Crop

&Food Research(now Plant

&Food) and was aresearch

manager at BLNZ.

‘‘I’ve done alittle bit of

everything.The only thingsI

haven’t done are poultryand

arable,’’ he says.

‘‘While Iknow all farms are

different, Ihave an

appreciationthat there are

common threads. And

everyone who works at the

levy­funded organisations is

passionate about what they do

and want to do the best for

their levy payers.’’

Thatvariety of experiences

should put Mr Manningin

goodstead for his new role,

which will see him work

closely with New Zealand’s 93

commercial pig farms to

support them with advice on

immigration, migrant labour,

health and safety, vocational

education and employment.

The role also involves

supporting the collaboration,

communicationand

education across the pork

industry ‘‘from paddock to

plate’’.

Mr Manning is looking

forward to gettingout to meet

farmers around the region

and learning abouttheir

challenges, so he can be a

voicefor them.

‘‘I’mstill gettingmyhead

around it, but there are alot

of uncertainties, so it’s about

how do we helpthem and

work with government to get

the best outcome.’’

One challenge facingthe

pork industry was competing

against importedmeat, which

was oftensubject to lower

environmental, animal

welfare and safety standards.

NZPork has called for

mandatory country of origin

labellingtoassistlocal

consumers.

‘‘We wantconsumers to

know they can make an

informed choice,’’ Mr

Manning says.

‘‘We are here to represent

our farmers and we are proud

of our farmers. We are being

held to ahigher standard and

at the end of the day it’supto

the consumer.

‘‘It’s the same across any

industry. Our farmersare

passionate about their

animals and they’re

passionate about their

product.’’

Sourcing qualitystaff has

always been achallenge,

made worse by Covid­19

border restrictions, though on

asmaller scale comparedto

otherindustries.

Thereare positives and

challengesofworking for a

smaller industry body, Mr

Manning says.

‘‘In this role there’s93

farmsinstead of thousands of

farms. Ithinkit’s great

because you’ve got the

opportunity to get to know

people and their situations.

‘‘Butitdoes mean we’ve got

asmaller budgetsoyou’vegot

to be abit more nimble and

focused.’’

NZPork supportsan

industry which produces

637,280 pigsayear, withtwothirds

of the pigsprocessed in

Kaiapoi third in country rugby

RUGBY

BY LINDSAY KERR,

PETER WILLIAMS AND

DAYLE SUTHERLAND

Kaiapoi beat Prebbleton 20­8 in

the playoff for third and fourth

positions in the 2021 edition of

the Luisetti Seeds Combined

Country rugby competition.

This equalled Kaiapoi’s

previous best finishinthis

competitioninthe 2010 season.

Whilethiswas unfoldingat

Kaiapoi,Southbridge and hosts,

Southern werelocked in a

thriller 120kmfurthersouth at

Hinds.

Southbridge made the early

running but Southern gradually

closed the gap and eventually,

late in the second half, scored

what proved to be the winning

try to holdonfor a22­18victory.

With the competition in

abeyancelast season courtesy

of Covid­19, Southern had

shared the spoils with

Glenmark­Cheviot in 2019,soit

can claim to be the most

consistent team of the lastfew

seasons.

Kaiapoi v

Prebbleton

At Kaiapoi, both teamschoseto

rest anumberoftheirregular

starters but there was no lack of

intensity.

Kaiapoi unveiled yet another

front­rower of truequality with

youngster Henry Bogitini

impressing in aconvincingspell

at loose­headprop.

This week it was his turnto

anchorastrong scrum which

kept Kaiapoi in the game

despite Prebbleton havinga

distinct territorial advantagein

the first half.

Despite that Kaiapoi scored

the first two tries of the match,

ten minuteseither side of halftime,

with lock Nacanieli

Namatainstrumental in both

tries.

In the first he offloaded to his

locking partner Connor Smith,

while he scored the second

himself after selling one of his

trademarkdummies.

At this point Kaiapoi had a

comfortable buffer and it was

late in the matchbefore

try.

Kaiapoi’s defensiveeffort was

particularly laudable and a

major factor in restricting

Prebbleton’s scoring.

Loose forwards JarrodSmith

and Jarred Gilmore took the

leadand, though short in

stature, neverstopped running

and never shirkedthe tackle,

serving their side superbly and

could takealot of credit forthe

Kaiapoi victory.

Saracens v

Springston

At Southbrook Park,Saracens’

strong season continued with a

43­36 win overSpringstoninthe

5th place play­off game.

Following its injurytime

defeat in the quarter finals,

Saracenswas determined to put

theresult behind it and used

the game as an opportunity to

do so.

Oxford vWest

Melton

Oxford earnedsome silverware

in the play­off for 9th place,

winningthe CanterburyRugby

Supporters’ Club Trophy, with a

handy 45­24 victory over

Ellesmere’s WestMelton.

West Melton was in thehunt

in the opening quarter, but the

enterpriseofthe Oxford

backline was to prove too good.

Oxford was first to score,

when RhetMoore ran an inside

before Oxford’s impressive

Rangiora women draw with mid-week Aces

HOCKEY

Afterwinning the local derby

against Hinemoa­Kaiapoi Rata a

fortnight ago, the Rangiora

Hurunui Hares were excited to

take on unbeaten Avon Aces in

the Mid­Week Open Division 1

competition.

An own goal early put the

Haresonthe back foot,but they

replied quickly with an

equaliser, thendominated for

long periods and were unlucky

not to score several times.

In the end the Hares had to

settle for a1­all draw,which

knocked them bothoff the top of

the table, but withonly two

points separating the top five

teamsinthe competition every

pointcounts.

The Rangiora Hurunui Hawks

have got on the board, scoring a

2­1 upset win over Avon, aweek

afteratight 4­3 loss against UC

Aztecs.

The Hawkswill be hoping this

form continues against bottomof

the tableSouthern United, so it

can close the gap on 4th place in

the Division3competition.

Both Rangiora CBK Division 1

teamshad tough asks last

weekend againstHornby.

The men were solid against the

second placed team in their

division, but were unable to

manufacture agoal despite

creating good opportunities.

The women did manageto

scorethreegreat goals, but it

wasn't enoughasits opponents

ran in seven.

Premiership, Rangiora

Korimako look determined to

dominate the SSL

Championship.

Two quick goals in the first

quarter set them up for a

comfortable 4­1 win againstUC

Athenians, ateam that had

beaten Rangiora earlier in the

season.

Unfortunately Rangiora

Piwakawaka couldn't match that

result, goingdown to UC Incas

3­0,but the scoreline could have

beenalot worse withoutthe

heroic efforts of goalkeeper

Cassidy New, who saved 17 shots

on goal.

At 2­1 down and with only 10 fit

playersthe Rangiora Allsorts

had to dig deep in theirmidweek

men's clash against Marist

Mooses, with George Ridgen

scoring from apenalty stroke to

take alate lead.

Marist dropped its goal keeper

near the end in adesperatebid to

manufacture agoal, butinstead

it gavethe Allsorts an easy 4th

goal and an unassailable lead.

Meanwhile heavy fog at

MainPower Turf couldn't hold

back the mid­week Amen's team

from demolishing Uni Romans

11­0.

Kickstart Canterbury Presents Highway to Well

Motorcyclists feature highly in our road crash

statistics, particularly in the Canterbury area.

While there are some great riding routes, wealso

unfortunately have one of the highest death and

serious injury rates in the country.

Since 2015 sadly 44 motorcyclists have lost their

lives on Canterbury roads with afurther 285

seriously injured. For every one of those people it

is an ongoing trauma for both families and loved

ones le behind orrecovering from or adapting to

the impact of serious injuries ontheir lives.

Kickstart Canterbury is acollaborative effort

involving Waimakariri and Selwyn District Councils,

Christchurch City Council, ACC, Motorcycle Safety

Advisory Council and local Ride Forever trainers.

Each year events are held to encourage uptake of

Ride Forever training and promote safer riding.

This year Kickstart Canterbury are linking inwith

Men’sHealth Week, recognising that motorcycle

riding has many benefits other than transport.

Being in the right physical and mental health when

riding is key to keeping safe onthe roads.

Kickstart’s “Highway to Well” events are free and

will have guest speakers and motorcycle safety and

health information. There will also be multiple spot

prizes and free nibbles throughout the evening.

The event provides agreat opportunity to come

together and connect with likeminded riders, and

to listen to topics on motorcycle safety and riding

tips, mental health and wellbeing.

Local Ride Forever trainerswill be there to chatto,

along with the CanterburyMen's Centre, Menz Medical,

and Green Prescription.

Hammering home electric

An Amberley­based building

company is working towards

becoming carbon negative.

Murchison Homes,which has an

environmental focus, is adopting

an electric vehicle(EV) fleetasa

first stepinhelping removemore

carbondioxide from the

atmospherethan they emit.

ManagingdirectorMarty

Murchison says the company is

also moving toward using wool

insulation, renewable timbers

such as beechand pine, and ecofriendly

fibre cement.

Martysays the benefits of

swapping to EVs was compelling,

and believes in the not too distant

futurethe majority of New

Zealanders will be driving them.

‘‘We hope that by adopting an

EV fleet we can lead by example

and begin to effect real change,’’

he says.

Electric vehicles emitted 80

percent less carbonthan an

equivalent petrol vehicle, were

cheaper to run, and had lower

maintenance costs

Critics said batteries could not

be recycled, but they could be

used for solarback up, and

facilities overseas werenow

recycling the entire battery, and

making them intonew ones.

‘‘We will see these battery

recycling facilities in New

Zealandonce enough people swap

over,’’Marty says.

The range of the vehicles

needed to be calculated when

making the transition to EVs, he

says.

‘‘The Nissan Leafinthe

Murchison Homes fleet covers

220km while the Tesla Model 3

will travelupto660km, depending

on how heavy footed you are.’’

great to achieve the win
