After hours facility still on target<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Rangiora’safter hours facility should<br />

begintotake shape in January.<br />

The facility will provide seven­day<br />

urgent carefrom8am to 10pm,and will<br />

also house other services, including a<br />

pharmacyand radiology services,’<br />

Aconcept design was presented to a<br />

public meeting in Rangiora lastweek by<br />

new <strong>Canterbury</strong> District HealthBoard<br />

(CDHB) chiefexecutive, Peter Bramley.<br />

Dr Bramley said the board was<br />

committed to providingthe facility as he<br />

gave an overview of healthservicesinthe<br />

Waimakariri.<br />

Health services willinclude<br />

maintainingbeds at Oxford Hospital,and<br />

resourcing the hospitaltoprovidecare for<br />

people closetohome.<br />

Waimakariri MP Matt Doocey, who<br />

organised the meeting, saysthe afterhours<br />

concept plan is ‘‘quite stunning’’.<br />

He says SouthLink Health has<br />

confirmed it plans to startconstruction in<br />

January.<br />

‘‘Unfortunately it comes at the expense<br />

of the Rangiora Hospitalbeing<br />

demolished,’’ he says.<br />

Dr Peter Bramley<br />

Dr Bramley also committedtoa<br />

paramedic servicefor the Waimakariri<br />

area.<br />

‘‘It is important livinginan area likethe<br />

Waimakariridistrict, that you have access<br />

to public service education or health<br />

services, that are comparabletopeople<br />

living in major urban areas,’’ says Mr<br />

Doocey. ‘‘Peopleshould not be penalised<br />

for living in rural areas.’’<br />

The CDHB is keen to engage further<br />

with Waimakariri residents following the<br />

old­style, robust town hallmeeting, at<br />

whicharound200 peopleturnedout at last<br />

Thursday,despite the rain.<br />

Mr Doocey saysresidents and CDHB<br />

representativeswere excited about the<br />

levelofcommunity engagement the<br />

meeting provided,and whichraised not<br />

only concerns, but some greatideas.<br />

‘‘I’mthrilled that this has sparked an<br />

ongoing conversation the CDHB will be<br />

having directly withour community about<br />

creating wrap­around services for our<br />

residents.<br />

‘‘They’ve taken the concerns that were<br />

raised and willbecoming back with some<br />

ideasthat theywill workshop directly with<br />

us as acommunity, and that is very<br />

exciting,’’ Mr Doocey says.<br />

‘‘This putsour residents at the heart of<br />

our health services.<br />

‘‘Many of those who attended are<br />

working in our communityhealth and<br />

aged­care sectorsinWaimakariri, and<br />

they were abletobring someoftheir<br />

concernsabout in­community care and to<br />

feed those concerns through,’’ says Mr<br />

Doocey.<br />

Swimming brings happiness<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Swimming is provingtobejustthe tonic<br />

for ChristinePatterson.<br />

Christine,who has been battling<br />

depression for over adecade,has taken<br />

the plunge,and is back in the pool, which<br />

is proving to be agreat place to find<br />

solace.<br />

Recently she swam100 lengths of<br />

Rangiora’sDudley Park pool.<br />

Her effortswere not just for her own<br />

wellbeing however, but to help raise<br />

fundsfor aSalvation Army project,<br />

Embrace Fiji,aretreat for women.<br />

‘‘Formepersonally, through helping<br />

theseladies in Fiji, Ihave been helped in<br />

return,’’ says Christine.<br />

Her decision to get back in the pool has<br />

been life changing.<br />

She can now do every day jobs like<br />

grocery shopping, and enjoys being back<br />

in the garden.<br />

Her problems began with paininher<br />

feet ­Plantar fasciitis.<br />

With the pain beingsohorrific, feet<br />

bandaged, unabletoswim, unable to walk,<br />

unable to continueher lifeguard work,and<br />

unable to be aswim instructor,orwork at<br />

an elderly personshome, Louisebecame<br />

isolated.<br />

The February 2011 Christchurch<br />

earthquake alsotook its toll.<br />

‘‘With the sale of our house, and unable<br />

to begin our new build, it must have been<br />

all too muchand depressionset in.<br />

Once the bandages wereoff, she couldn’t<br />

In the swim .. Christine (centre), with Stacey Bruce from the Salvation Army in Rangiora<br />

But hearing about Embrace Fiji,<br />

Christine madeither goal to get back in<br />

the pool to helpatleastone Fijian lady go<br />

to the retreat, by swimming 100, sponsored<br />

<strong>25</strong> metre lengthsofthe Dudley Parkpool,<br />

Once back in the water,Christine found<br />

she was ‘‘surprisingly happy’’. Each<br />

Kaiapoi’s proposed aqua play park could<br />

be openbylate October.<br />

Watertest resultstoensurepublic<br />

safety, which delayed the resource<br />

consent process for the project due to a<br />

lack of rain, are now under way.<br />

In apresentation to Monday evening’s<br />

Kaiapoi­TuahiwiCommunity Board<br />

meeting, WHoW Charitable Trust trustees<br />

JasonMill and Tony Joseph said water<br />

testingresultsfollowing the May 31 flood<br />

eventhad come back better than expected.<br />

The proposed site is alake in Kaiapoi’s<br />

NCF Reserve, tuckedinbehindCourtenay<br />

Drive, in theformer residential red zone.<br />

The Waimakariri District Council hopes<br />

to begin public consultation on the project<br />

next week.<br />

Mr Millsaid the trust’s ecologist<br />

completed daily watertests in the days<br />

immediately following the flood eventand<br />

was pleasantly surprised at the results.<br />

‘‘We havecompleted watertests, depth<br />

testsand riparian edge tests,and we’ve<br />

done moretests following the flood. That<br />

was considered aone in ahundredyear<br />

floodevent and we’re not at critical levels,<br />

so that’s agood sign.<br />

‘‘We wereabit worried about the impact<br />

of aflush event, but it came backafterfour<br />

days (of testing)atbetter than it was.’’<br />

Should the projectgoahead,the trust<br />

anticipates the aquapark would close for<br />

aweek,following amajorrain event, to<br />

allowtime for testing to ensurepublic<br />

safety.<br />

Following advicefrom Environment<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> staff, WHoW aims to do 45<br />

watertests, at the trust’s expense. It has<br />

completed aquarter of them.<br />

‘‘We don’t needtodoall 45 tests, but we<br />

want to be as diligent as possible,’’MrMill<br />

said.<br />

As part of it’s social outcomes, the trust<br />

is looking to engage with 88 low decile<br />

schools, with the pupils assistingthe<br />

ecologist with the testing.<br />

‘‘It’s providing education and<br />

opportunities forthe kids. We teach them<br />

awee bit about water ecology, bird<br />

intention of providing the pupils with a<br />

free swimfor theirefforts.The trust is also<br />

keen to advanceits conversationswith<br />

Ngai Tuahuririinabid to support<br />

Should the trust be successful in<br />

obtaining aconsent, Mr Millisoptimistic<br />

the aqua playpark is on tracktoopen in<br />

late October and would operate for five<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Adecision on applicationsbyTaggart<br />

EarthmovingLtd, to quarry gravel at the<br />

Rangiora Racecourse,should be known<br />

early next month.<br />

The hearing was closed on Friday,<br />

<strong>June</strong> 18, after the independent<br />

commissioners hearing the applications,<br />

received Taggart’s right of reply to<br />

submissions.<br />

The panel chair, Paul Rogers, says the<br />

parties can expect adecision‘‘on or<br />

about Friday,July 9’’.<br />

Submitterswho contactedthe <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong><strong>News</strong> believe Taggart’s right<br />

of reply minimisesconcerns raised at the<br />

hearing by residents, and experts.<br />

Theyalso feel the legal submissions<br />

madeonbehalf of Taggart Earthmoving<br />

Ltd,completely ignore many<br />

submissions and those who spoke at the<br />

hearing, apart from expertwitnesses.<br />

Taggart Earthmoving Ltd is proposing<br />

aquarrycovering 14.5hectares, with two<br />

hectares disturbed at atime.<br />

It seeks threeconsents fromECan and<br />

aland­use consent from the Waimakariri<br />

District Council, which would be active<br />

for 15 years.<br />

The proposal attracted404<br />

submissions, with 390 opposing it.<br />

Evidence was given on the first day of<br />

the hearing which began earlyMay, that<br />

Another significant rain eventon<br />

Sunday, <strong>June</strong> 21, proved alittlebit<br />

more than was neededfor the Hurunui<br />

and Kaikoura Districts.<br />

Kaikoura’sPuhi Puhi ValleyRoad<br />

suffered damageinthe deluge, while<br />

roadswere closed in the Hurunui<br />

Districtdue to slipsand flooding.<br />

Even Cheviot’s main street was<br />

awash, and watered flowedover<br />

sections of the StateHighway as<br />

creeks and rivers struggled to cope.<br />

Hurunui’s roading and water teams<br />

were kept busy making sure<br />

conditions, infrastructure and<br />

services were safe.<br />

On Tuesdayaround 10 roads were<br />

still closed, while slipsand swollen<br />

fords on several roads madedriving<br />

tricky.<br />

The Kaiwara, Hurunui No 1, and<br />

Upper Waitohi water schemes were on<br />

boiled water notices.<br />

Reaching out to the young<br />

Ayouth mentoring initiative in the<br />

Hurunui District is looking for young<br />

people to take part in the programme.<br />

Hurunui District Council’s Youth<br />

Development co­ordinator, Rebecca<br />

Pugh says youth between the ages of 12<br />

and 18 are being sought to join the<br />

Hurunui Youth programme.<br />

Early last year, aresearch project,<br />

focusing on Hurunui youth was<br />

developed by three women working in<br />

Youth Wellbeing­ Michelle Cole of<br />

Meaningful Health Hurunui, Sarah<br />

Wylie and Dr Jane Spittlehouse of the<br />

Collaborative Trust for Research and<br />

Training in Youth Development.<br />

They found youth mentoring in the<br />

district would be apositive<br />

experience for our local teens, leading<br />

to the launch of the youth mentoring<br />

initiative.<br />

“The research shows many benefits<br />

of amentoring partnership, such as<br />

improved relationship skills, increase<br />

in self­worth and increased sense of<br />

wellbeing.<br />

‘‘We want this for our young people<br />

in Hurunui,” said Rebecca.<br />

Rebeccas is thrilled to have 14<br />

mentors come forward, and is now on<br />

the hunt for young people to join the<br />

programme.<br />

“We would love to hear from any<br />

youth or their whanau who are<br />

interested in this awesome<br />

opportunity and to see if this initiative<br />

is the right fit for them.”<br />

OPINION<br />

6 The <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> <strong>News</strong>, <strong>June</strong> 24, <strong>2021</strong><br />

Around the electorate with<br />

STUART SMITH MP FOR KAIKOURA<br />

Final report leaves<br />

many questions<br />

The Climate ChangeCommission has<br />

released its final report, and although it<br />

does take astep back from the Draft<br />

Report, it still leaves many unanswered<br />

questions as to how New Zealand will<br />

reach the net­zero emissions target.<br />

The Commissionproposed policies<br />

such as subsidiesonelectricvehicles<br />

and taxes on some internalcombustion<br />

engines,which the Government<br />

announced last week despitepromising<br />

no new taxes.<br />

This policy will not lower emissions,<br />

and it mayeven drive them up, given<br />

that ute sales have gone through the<br />

roof. Unfortunately it will cost<br />

hardworking Kiwis, especiallythose for<br />

whom there are no practical EV options,<br />

suchasfarmers and tradies.<br />

We live in afree country, and we do<br />

not want the Nanny State tellinguswhat<br />

we can or can’t drive. It was galling to<br />

hear the PrimeMinister say that alarge<br />

number of ute buyers are not usingthem<br />

for “legitimate use”, it showsjust how<br />

out of touchshe is.<br />

We could be heading down aslippery<br />

slope here, the Government want to tax<br />

our cars now, but what’s next?<br />

Will we be restricted on what sized<br />

refrigerator we can buy?<br />

This is why we shouldlet the<br />

Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS), do<br />

the heavy liftinghere.<br />

The Climate Change Commissionin<br />

their report said that the ETS will get us<br />

to net zero by 2050 with acost of $50 per<br />

tonne, which is very reasonable, the<br />

danger here is that these poorlythought<br />

out policies may mean we do not get<br />

there at all or we do at acost thatwill<br />

impoverish us. The ETS willallow us to<br />

reach our 2050 net­zero emissions target<br />

through the least cost way.<br />

But most importantly it givespeople<br />

the choice on how they shouldreduce<br />

their emissions, rather than the<br />

Government controlling it through<br />

taxes.<br />

We need to back the market­driven<br />

solution,not costly policies that put our<br />

country further in debt.<br />

KAIKŌURA VIEWS<br />

MAYOR CRAIG MACKLE<br />

People and events<br />

return to Kaikoura<br />

It was good to seesomany people<br />

coming to Kaikoura over the Queen’s<br />

Birthday weekend recently.<br />

The Kaikoura Bike Trails and<br />

Kaikoura Cold Water Classic surfing<br />

events were major drawcards.<br />

Big ups to the community who put the<br />

time in to make these events happen.<br />

Iwas really pleased to seeGina<br />

Solomon on the Queen’s Birthday<br />

honour list.<br />

This achievement recognises all the<br />

work that she has done to protect the<br />

environment in Kaikoura, as well as her<br />

commitment to conservation on a<br />

national level.<br />

Long TermPlan community hui have<br />

gone ahead in town, Goose Bay and<br />

Kekerengu.<br />

In general, Iwould say that we have<br />

had the best response to LTP meetings<br />

that Ihave been involved with.<br />

While no­one ishappy with any rates<br />

increase and everyone has adifferent<br />

viewpoint, thereisarealunderstanding<br />

of the issues facing local government<br />

and most people are agreeing with the<br />

key proposalsthe council wants to focus<br />

on over the next 10 years.<br />

I’d really like people to makea<br />

submission if they agree that we should<br />

improve the roads andfootpaths, start<br />

an urban rubbish collection, support<br />

Destination Kaikoura and review our<br />

out­dated District Plan.<br />

The submission form is online. It is<br />

easy to fill out. Youjust check the boxes<br />

and there is also space to tell us why you<br />

chose thisoption, and other comments<br />

you have on our plan for the next 10<br />

years.<br />

The Three Waters Reform shows the<br />

government is keen on establishing a<br />

small number of large newwater<br />

entities, instead of local councils, which<br />

would deliver water services to<br />

households and businesses.<br />

The next stage in theThree Waters<br />

Reform willbeannounced in afew<br />

weeks, as soon as we know more, we’ll<br />

pass the information on to you.<br />

Take care andifyou can, take some<br />

time to make asubmission to our LTP.<br />

Your submission will let us know we<br />

are on the right track andwill help us to<br />

make our final decision.<br />

Dear Editor,<br />

SinceIamstanding for<br />

councillor in the West ward<br />

of the Hurunui District<br />

Council it wouldbean<br />

opportune time to explain<br />

the difference between<br />

having ‘money’ and having<br />

‘wealth’.<br />

Moneyallows you to buy<br />

product, anew car,overseas<br />

trip etc.Ifyou don’t haveit.<br />

Bad luck.<br />

Wealth on the other hand<br />

relates to whatour culture<br />

offers its citizens.<br />

Examples often quoted are<br />

drinkablewater, swimmable<br />

rivers, quality education,<br />

roadsthat don’tneed<br />

constant repair,an<br />

environment that’sa<br />

pleasure to livein, and all<br />

sorts of things that are<br />

availablenomater what<br />

yoursocioeconomic status<br />

is.<br />

Perhaps it is easier to<br />

explain what wealth isn’t or<br />

signs or symptoms of losing<br />

wealth ­MORE taxes, crime,<br />

welfare, pollution,<br />

pornography, bureaucracy,<br />

or LESSresponsibility and<br />

productivity.<br />

The essentialcriteria<br />

councilsmust fulfil is to<br />

provide basic infrastructure<br />

for the residents to build<br />

wealth upon, and to use<br />

ratepayers taxes efficiently<br />

to the maximum benefits of<br />

everyone withinthe district.<br />

Yours,<br />

Endangeredbirds<br />

benefit from flood<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

The populations of endangered<br />

braided river birdscould increase<br />

thanks to the recent floodinthe<br />

Ashley/Rakahuri River.<br />

The forceofthe water has stripped<br />

all the weeds fromthe riverbed,<br />

leaving gravelislands,wherebirds<br />

like to nest, free of cover for predators.<br />

Birdssuch as the wrybill,blackfronted<br />

tern, and banded dotterel,<br />

require baregravel to nest on.<br />

The Ashley/Rakahuri Rivercare<br />

Group(ARRG)has found acorrelation<br />

between bird numbers and the amount<br />

of bare gravel.<br />

Afterseveralyears of no large<br />

floods, the beds of smallerfoot­hills<br />

fed rivers such as the Ashley, Opihi,<br />

and Orarihave been overwhelmed by<br />

weeds.<br />

Groupmember Grant Davey says<br />

wherethere weredeep braidchannels<br />

thereisnow high islands,and vice<br />

versa.<br />

All signsofrecent riverextraction<br />

has also beenerased, and the fairway<br />

widened, in some cases by 50 metres or<br />

more,hesays.<br />

“Almost the entire gravel bed of the<br />

riverseems to have been liftedupand<br />

movedbyflood watersresulting in a<br />

complete change in its morphology.’’<br />

Mr Davey saysthe islands are where<br />

the birds prefertonest, and are safest<br />

from predators. Norway rats and stoats<br />

swim to the islands, but other<br />

predators such as hedgehogs and cats<br />

are much less likely to do so.<br />

David Owen, Environment<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong>’s principal biodiversity<br />

adviser, braided rivers, says, the<br />

floods have presented the opportunity<br />

to try to keep the river relativelyweedfree.<br />

‘‘Left unchecked, the weeds will<br />

inevitably return.”<br />

ARRG, with regional council<br />

funding, had been about to<br />

mechanically clear 64 hectares of<br />

weedy islands.ARRG is now working<br />

on astrategy to stop the weeds growing<br />

again.<br />

The floods did hit the grouphard,<br />

however. It lost 100 predator traps, out<br />

of 400, during the floods. They were set<br />

along the bermofthe river and around<br />

the estuary, mostly tied to trees or in<br />

scrub, and were swept awayinthe<br />

raging torrent.<br />

AGivealittle page has been set up to<br />

raise funds to buy more trapsbefore<br />

the breeding season startsin<br />

September. To date over $1800 has<br />

beenraised.Traps cost about $50 to<br />

$70 each.<br />

Overthe past 16 years,ARRG has<br />

protectedan18km stretch of the river<br />

withtraps to eliminatepredators,<br />

allowing the braided river birdsto<br />

breedand raise chicks safely.<br />

Theirwork has helped the birds to<br />

hold their own on the Ashley and even<br />

increaseslightly, comparedwith<br />

gradual to catastrophic decline<br />

The Widest Music Variety<br />

The inaugural WaimakaririBridge To<br />

Bridge Ultra Marathon60km event<br />

winner Andrew Wanklyn had asharp<br />

reminder about New Zealand winters on<br />

Saturday.<br />

The Christchurch man had been<br />

workinginthe Australianmine industry,<br />

based at Western Australia’sShark Bay,<br />

but returned home afew days ago, and<br />

despite beingrugged up for his<br />

endurance run on Saturday,hewas still<br />

cold at the finish.<br />

‘‘It was 30 degrees in Shark Bay, when<br />

Ileft,’’hesaid. Andrew finishedthe<br />

60km in fivehours, nine minutesand 33<br />

seconds and saiditwas the longestrace<br />

he had ever competed in.<br />

The firstrunnerhome in the Bridge to<br />

Bridge 15kmrun, was Jakob<br />

Cunningham, of Oamaru, who ran the<br />

distancein19minutes and 28 seconds.<br />

His stepfather, Mark Esselink, of<br />

Oamaru won the 30km event, finishing<br />

the distancein2hours10minutes and 55<br />

seconds.<br />

The UltraMarathon included four<br />

events —the 60km Ultra Marathon<br />

starting at the WaimakaririGolf Club,<br />

the 30kmevent from Downs Rd, the 15km<br />

event, starting at HarrsRd, and the 5km,<br />

starting at WaimakaririRiver Park. All<br />

held in even more winteryweather on<br />

Sunday, using the same routes.<br />

`‘‘Saturday was afantastic day, perfect<br />

for running,’’ Carolsaid. ‘‘`Sundaywas a<br />

little bit damp, actuallyquite wet at<br />

Floods put stopbanks to the test<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

The importance of stopbanks was highlighted<br />

duringthe recent<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong>region­wide<br />

flood, an Environment<strong>Canterbury</strong>spokesperson<br />

says.<br />

‘‘Althoughthe bulk of therainfall in theregionwideflood<br />

werestillsignificant,’’ Ecan’sriversmanager<br />

Leigh Griffiths says.<br />

‘‘Overallweare reallypleased withhow the<br />

Waimakariri­Eyre­Custfloodprotection<br />

‘‘Thisisanother reminder that our flood<br />

protection plays abig part in protecting the<br />

health and well­beingofcommunitiesand<br />

critical infrastructuresuch as roads,community<br />

water supplies andpowerlines.’’<br />

‘‘Inthe Ashley River at thegorge, thiswas the<br />

biggestfloodonrecord, and the highflows we saw<br />

all the way downthe usuallylow­flow river<br />

do not apply to most residential<br />

and farm buildings.<br />

An assessor will start<br />

inspectingfrom nextMonday<br />

reviewing buildings thathave<br />

met one or more of the three<br />

criteria.<br />

“We have carried out a<br />

desktop study of over 1000<br />

buildings which has helped us<br />

identify what buildingsneed to<br />

be looked at, but it will likely be<br />

lessthan five percent of<br />

properties affected across the<br />

whole district once we have<br />

carried out the inspections.”<br />

Inspections will takeuptosix<br />

months. Letterswillthen be<br />

“This is all about providing a<br />

‘‘Earthquake strengthening<br />

work can vary in cost, from<br />

$30,000toseveralmillion.”<br />

There is no costtothe<br />

Satisfaction from helping others<br />

VOLUNTEER WEEK<br />

By LOUISE LEITCH<br />

Volunteering is away of life<br />

for Norman Maindonald.<br />

He has dedicated more than<br />

40 years of service to the<br />

community in Christchurch,<br />

and more recently, <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong>.<br />

The Rangiora resident, who<br />

volunteers with Community<br />

Wellbeing <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

Trust as aRestorative Justice<br />

panellist, says volunteering<br />

gives him asatisfaction that<br />

nothing else does.<br />

Aself­professed jack of all<br />

trades, masterofnone,<br />

Norman held variousjobs in<br />

Christchurch, including arole<br />

as manager at Smiths City,<br />

before becoming South Island<br />

sales representative for<br />

Masport.<br />

‘‘I was happily married, with<br />

two children. Ihad agreat job<br />

but Iwas too comfortable, says<br />

Norman.<br />

‘‘My prayer was, if Ican do<br />

something more productive,<br />

let me know.’’<br />

Normanbelieves his prayer<br />

was answeredwhen aserious<br />

car accident in 1984 left him<br />

with afracturedskull and<br />

unable to resume his job. Once<br />

he had recovered sufficiently<br />

he poured himself into prison<br />

ministry,avoluntary role he<br />

had begun while employed<br />

fulltime.<br />

When Norman began<br />

working with men at Rolleston<br />

Prison, some 41 years ago, his<br />

wife Shirley, while supportive<br />

of her husband’s decision,<br />

Volunteer week .. . Norman Maindonald says he gets<br />

‘‘tremendous satisfaction’’ from volunteering.<br />

PHOTO: COMMUNITY WELLBEING NORTHCANTERBURY TRUST<br />

stated categorically thatshe<br />

did not want to be involved.<br />

‘‘But three years later, she<br />

was more involved in the<br />

ministry than Iwas,’’ says<br />

Norman.<br />

The couple took prison<br />

inmates into their home for<br />

what was known as 72 hour<br />

parole, part of aprogramme to<br />

help prisoners nearing their<br />

time for release to transition<br />

successfully back into society.<br />

‘‘They were often men from<br />

the <strong>North</strong> Island without any<br />

whanau locally to support<br />

them, says Norman. We would<br />

feed them, talk with them.<br />

Shirley and Imust have had<br />

dozens of prisoners through<br />

our home.’’<br />

Norman grew up in Kurow,<br />

<strong>North</strong>Otago and describes his<br />

parents as straight up and<br />

down good people.<br />

‘‘I was brought up to abide<br />

by the rules because Ihad<br />

parents who cared for me,<br />

loved me, but not everyone’s<br />

so fortunate,’’ says Norman.<br />

‘‘I get tremendous<br />

satisfaction from helping<br />

someone who has been in a<br />

heap of trouble to turn their<br />

life around and have hope for<br />

the future.’’<br />

It was Norman’s work with<br />

offenders that in 2003, led<br />

Deirdre Ryan, now manager of<br />

Community Wellbeing<strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> Trust, to invite<br />

Norman to join apilot<br />

opportunity for victims to talk<br />

to offenders and say how their<br />

lives have been affected by the<br />

offenders’ actions.<br />

Participation is voluntary, in a<br />

facilitated conversation<br />

between offenderand victim.<br />

‘‘Victims can be reluctantto<br />

take part in arestorative<br />

justice conference initially,’’<br />

says Norman, ‘‘but afterwards<br />

they often say it was the best<br />

thing that could have<br />

happened.’’<br />

shot. Being the wealthiest,<br />

most influential person<br />

genuinely help someone else,<br />

why wouldn't I?’’.<br />

Passion for baking bread<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

Two Rangiora apprentice<br />

bakers are bucking the<br />

nationaltrend of attracting<br />

youngpeople into the<br />

baking profession.<br />

The early­starts put many<br />

youngpeople offtraining to<br />

become bakers.<br />

However, Johnny<br />

Murchison (20) and Nicole<br />

Young(19), who bothwork<br />

at the award­winning<br />

Percival Street Bakeryin<br />

Rangiora are both<br />

passionate about their<br />

career choice, despitethe<br />

earlystarts.<br />

Both Johnny and Nicole<br />

admitgetting to work early<br />

is tough,particularlyfor<br />

Nicolewho is anatural<br />

night owl, but they say<br />

seeinghow much customers<br />

enjoy the bread and other<br />

food they make more than<br />

compensates.<br />

Wayne Rewi, the head<br />

baker at Percival Street<br />

Bakery, says bakingbread is<br />

his passionand he is lucky<br />

to havetwo such talented<br />

apprentices working with<br />

him.<br />

‘‘It is hardtoattract<br />

young,enthusiastic people<br />

into the bakingprofession,<br />

but both Johnny and Nicole<br />

are alsopassionate about<br />

bakingand bread making, so<br />

we are fortunatetohave<br />

Kaikoura<br />

eerily quiet<br />

‘‘Reality is startingtokick in,’’ says<br />

Kaikoura Mayor Craig Mackle.<br />

As winter setsinand with no<br />

international tourists for 15 months,<br />

the towniseerily quiet.<br />

‘‘Hopefully it will pick up abit<br />

nextmonth with the school<br />

holidays.Last winterwas pretty<br />

amazing,’’ Mr Mackle says.<br />

‘‘I think it comes downtoadapting<br />

to the new environment and some<br />

businesses havedone really well,<br />

but you’ve got other businesses who<br />

are dependent on touristsand they<br />

can’t adapt so easily.’’<br />

The <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> Transport<br />

InfrastructureRecovery alliance’s<br />

finalproject, at Peketaand the<br />

Parititahi Tunnels, south of<br />

Kaikoura, is coming to end.<br />

But there is causefor optimism,as<br />

Kaikoura’sMayor’s Taskforce for<br />

Jobshas exceeded its targets. More<br />

than 50 people were placed in jobs<br />

in its first six monthsand funding<br />

has been secured for another year.<br />

‘‘There’s been ahell of alot of<br />

people put into work and they’ve<br />

evendirected peoplewheretogo,<br />

evenifthey fall outsidethe criteria,<br />

so they’re stillhelpingthem which<br />

is good to see.’’<br />

Statistics from the Ministry of<br />

Social Developmentshows there<br />

were66Kaikoura residents on a<br />

Jobseeker’s Benefit at the end of<br />

May.This is the same number as<br />

May 2020.InMay, 2019 therewere<br />

27. ‘‘Unemployment is about half<br />

whatitcould have been and<br />

hopefully we will get that lower too,<br />

butyou’ve got to have the work to be<br />

able to offerthe employment,’’ Mr<br />

Mackle says.<br />

them.’’<br />

Johnny is in charge of<br />

caring for the bakery’s four<br />

bread starters, which all<br />

havenames.They include<br />

the oldest, Boris, which<br />

turns 10 in November.<br />

Nicole,who is gluten free,<br />

specialises in makingthe<br />

bakery’s large range of<br />

gluten­freeproducts.<br />

Wayne saysthere is<br />

somethingspecial about<br />

baking bread.<br />

‘‘There is justsomething<br />

about it. It is not the same<br />

every day.Little thingssuch<br />

as temperature play abig<br />

justanyone can pick it up,<br />

Speed limits to be reviewed<br />

Speed continues to be ahot topic in the<br />

Oxford area.<br />

Earlier this month the Oxford­Ohoka<br />

Community Board signed off areport<br />

seeking to consult with the community on<br />

proposed speed limit reviews on roads in<br />

and around the board’s area.<br />

Top of the list is Oxford’s Main Street,<br />

with several residents keen to see the<br />

speed limit reduced to 40kph.<br />

‘‘It’s been ahot topic in Oxford for<br />

quite awhile,’’ board chairperson Doug<br />

Nicholl says.<br />

‘‘We’ve been given the proposed new<br />

speed limits and there’s afew other<br />

roads we thought should be included.<br />

‘‘We’re asking for a40kph speed limit<br />

on Main Street (Oxford) as residents have<br />

been asking us to do something about it.<br />

Whether we get what we want is a<br />

different story.’’<br />

Roads under review include the north<br />

and west Oxford Town entrances, at<br />

Ohoka township and Mill Road from<br />

Ohoka to Kaiapoi.<br />

Significant population growth and the<br />

expansion of urban areas over recent<br />

years means the existing speed limits in<br />

some areas are no longer appropriate,<br />

council staff said in areport to this<br />

month’s board meeting.<br />

Staff propose reducing the speed limit<br />

through Ohoka from 70kph to 60kph and<br />

down to 80kph on the eastern end of Mill<br />

Road.<br />

The board considered the<br />

recommendations made by staff and<br />

included additional locations in<br />

response to concerns raised about speed.<br />

Speed bumps ... The Waimakariri District<br />

Council will review speed limits in Oxford<br />

and Ohoka.<br />

PHOTO: FILE<br />

These will now be considered in a<br />

report to the council next month and the<br />

public will be invited to give feedback<br />

during September and October.<br />

‘‘We want to do everything we can to<br />

make our roads safer, and making sure<br />

speed limits are suitable helps to reduce<br />

the risk of serious injury or worse,’’ Mr<br />

Nicholl says.<br />

‘‘There is always high interest in speed<br />

limits and the public consultation is an<br />

opportunity for people to let us know<br />

what they think and have their say.’’<br />

Cemetery policy unveiled<br />

By DAVIDHILL<br />

Waimakariri’s newcemeterypolicy is<br />

expected to tidy up ‘‘afew grey<br />

areas’’.<br />

The WaimakaririDistrictCouncil<br />

adoptedanew cemetery policy at its<br />

meeting earlier this month,<br />

introducingnew rulesaround the<br />

pre­purchaseofgravesites.<br />

The newpolicy allowsresidentsto<br />

pre­purchaseone plotfor their<br />

exclusive use, butalsorequires the<br />

council to review it every 10 years.<br />

‘‘It’s alot more complicatedthan<br />

people think,’’Deputy Mayor Neville<br />

Atkinson says.<br />

‘‘Ifyou buy aplot for yourchildren,<br />

it might not be used for 60 years and<br />

then we run the riskofrunningout of<br />

room in our cemeteries,but there’sa<br />

wholelot of empty plots.<br />

‘‘Thequestionwas asked:‘what if<br />

peoplewanted to go and buyalot of<br />

plotsand speculate on them’. So<br />

there’s gottobeasensible<br />

compromisetopeople owning plots.’’<br />

Thenew rules shouldprevent the<br />

risk of speculation, with individuals<br />

only able to pre­purchase oneplot for<br />

theirexclusive use.<br />

Singleplots canbereservedfor 10<br />

years and will be subject to arevalidationbefore<br />

the 10 years is up to<br />

determine if theplot is still required.<br />

Thenew policygives effect to the<br />

newcemetery strategy adopted by the<br />

council in October lastyear.<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Kaiapoi and Rangiora stand<br />

readytoextendthe<br />

Christmas spirit to<br />

The two townslook set to<br />

benefit after the<br />

cancellation of the<br />

Kaiapoi Promotions<br />

Association (KPA)<br />

Ross Ditmer saytheir<br />

organisationsare gearing<br />

up for an extra influx of<br />

visitors for their respective<br />

Santaparades.<br />

The river town is first out<br />

of the blocks on Saturday,<br />

December4,followed by<br />

Rangiora on Sunday,<br />

December12.<br />

‘‘Kaiapoi is more than<br />

happytostep up to fill the<br />

void,’’ Mr Pinkham says.<br />

‘‘We arewell underway<br />

with our planning and we<br />

are about to callfor<br />

registrations.<br />

‘‘We were very pleased<br />

with the turnout last year<br />

and we estimated that <strong>25</strong><br />

percent of the peoplewere<br />

from northChristchurch, so<br />

hopefully we will get more<br />

this year.’’<br />

Therewere arecord 120<br />

floats entered in last year’s<br />

KaiapoiSanta Parade, up<br />

from80in 2019,and it was<br />

WhileRangiora<br />

says his organisation willbe<br />

looking to replicate last<br />

‘‘It’sareal shamefor<br />

Christchurch as it’ssuch an<br />

iconicevent,’’ he says.<br />

‘‘For Rangiora<br />

we can get people out from<br />

He says last year’s Santa<br />

<br />

<br />

BERNARD WHIMP<br />

One of the things that<br />

attracted metothe<br />

Australian share market<br />

was that I’d watch these<br />

companies that at some point<br />

during ayear would end uptrading<br />

at twice the price they had traded<br />

at, atsome other time ofthe year<br />

and itseemed incredible (and full<br />

of possibilities) tomethat there<br />

could besomething like 100%<br />

variance in the value of amajor<br />

business over 12months orso.<br />

Youdon’t usually find this<br />

variance in any other asset<br />

class, but you can imagine how<br />

much money could bemade if,<br />

for instance, houses and farms<br />

changed hands at half their<br />

realistic value at some point of the<br />

year.<br />

In no time at all you’d get onto<br />

the idea ofbuying them attheir<br />

low point and selling at the high<br />

point and making afortune,<br />

you might well not bother to do<br />

anything else inlife, you’d be<br />

making lots ofmoney and having a<br />

good time. Well, that’s how Isee<br />

the share market.<br />

If you can find asmooth and<br />

repetitive way toturn $1into<br />

$2 and then doitonalarge<br />

scale (share markets offer this<br />

opportunity) then the chances are,<br />

you’re likely toprosper.<br />

Advertising Feature<br />

Of course, you’ve got to know<br />

what to buy, when to buy it<br />

and how much to pay for it. To<br />

be successful you have to be<br />

incredibly selective and capable of<br />

forming aview ofwhat acompany<br />

is worth. You’ve got toassemble<br />

acalm, analytical understanding<br />

where you’re unaffected by<br />

the market ‘noise’ that always<br />

surrounds companies and share<br />

prices.<br />

It never ceases to amaze methe<br />

cheap assets (company shares)<br />

to be had from share markets,<br />

companies that will be worth, 2, 3<br />

or 4times as much as you paid for<br />

them in afew short years. Nothing<br />

else I’ve ever come across offers<br />

such opportunity, so often, at such<br />

discounted prices.<br />

Then there’s the liquidity (that’s<br />

the ability to buy and sell these<br />

assets). The liquidity is fantastic,<br />

you’re not locked intoowning<br />

anything. If you like what you’ve<br />

bought you can add toitany day<br />

of the working week bytapping<br />

on akeyboard. If you decide you<br />

don’t like it, you can sell itaseasily<br />

as you bought it. Inthis business<br />

Ilike tosay that you never have<br />

aproblem because if you own<br />

something and your view changes,<br />

you just sell it all inthe morning,<br />

problem gone!<br />

CVIPartnersCIO,Bernard Whimp<br />

What is a<br />

Hedge Fund?<br />

BERNARD WHIMP<br />

Traditionally ahedge fund<br />

usually referred to atype of<br />

share market investment fund<br />

that held investments that were<br />

both ‘long’ and ‘short’ positions,<br />

along position being aholding<br />

the investment firm believes<br />

will rise in value and ashort<br />

position being aholding the firm<br />

thinks will fall (money can be<br />

made in both directions). The<br />

expression ‘hedge fund’ has<br />

expanded these days outside<br />

the area oflisted equities to<br />

sometimes include investments in<br />

other asset classes or to involve<br />

share investing in aparticularly<br />

incisive and concentrated<br />

manner utilising ahigh conviction<br />

approach –such asallocating<br />

50% ofits available investment<br />

capital toits 5best ideas.<br />

To summarise, you could say, that<br />

An important partofthe annual<br />

calendar is the transition period.<br />

This occurs from three weeks before<br />

calving to three weeks after calving,as<br />

the cowtransitionsfrom the dry period<br />

to the milking herd.<br />

The transition periodiskey for the<br />

health of adairyherd.<br />

During this time,cows can suffer<br />

metabolicdisorders suchasketosis,<br />

milk fever, fattyliver, as well as other<br />

health issueslike retained placenta and<br />

displaced abomasum.<br />

All of these can haveamassiveeffect<br />

on the subsequent performance of the<br />

cow for the rest of thelactation.Itis<br />

easytoset dry cowsaside and deem<br />

themunimportant untilthey become<br />

the “money makers”again.<br />

However, maintaining balanced<br />

rations andbestmanagement practices<br />

before calving are criticaltohow well<br />

the cow performsinthe first60days of<br />

lactation.<br />

It cannotbeemphasisedenough that<br />

a cow’s lactationdoes notbeginat<br />

calving,but starts at theend of the<br />

previous lactation.<br />

It is well to focusonslow body<br />

condition gaintoreachthe targeted<br />

weight at dry off time. Withinthree<br />

weeks of calving,acow’simmune<br />

systembecomes depressed. It is vital to<br />

maintain drymatter intake at this time.<br />

Nutrientrequirementsofthe foetus<br />

continuetoincrease three weeks<br />

WINTER FARM MAINTENANCE<br />

Winter feed crops damaged<br />

Flood­damaged winter feed crops pose<br />

challenges for farmers this winter.<br />

Beef+Lamb New Zealand has joined<br />

forces withPGGWrightson Seed’s<br />

veterinary nutritionist Charlotte Westwood<br />

and extensionagronomist nutritionist<br />

Wayne Nichol to offersome advice.<br />

Farmers are encouraged to complete a<br />

feedbudget,prioritising water­damaged<br />

crops, re­transitioning stock back on to<br />

crops, andpaying extra attention to<br />

ongoing crop health, stock health, feed<br />

allocations,and personaland staff safety.<br />

Withupdated feed budgets, farmers can<br />

factor in potential losses of winter crops,<br />

damaged pasture and supplementary feed.<br />

‘‘Itpays to be ruthless. Water­damaged<br />

supplementary feed may not be suitablefor<br />

feeding,’’ theysaid.<br />

‘‘Reassess crops for dry matter yield now,<br />

and again later in winter, as plants may be<br />

lostdue to disease or thecrop may stop<br />

growing due to alack of plant­available<br />

nitrogen in the soil.’’<br />

Review the extent of the damageona<br />

paddock­by­paddock basis and assess<br />

infrastructure damage.<br />

Troughs may need cleaning if<br />

contaminated by floodwaters and may<br />

need‘‘footing material’’ if surrounding soil<br />

is verywet.<br />

Check if kale crops are stillstanding or<br />

beenwashed away, whether swede,turnip<br />

and fodder beet crops are still anchored<br />

and whether or not theyare covered in silt.<br />

Monitorcrops regularly over the coming<br />

weeks to assess plant survival, dry matter<br />

yield and thefeed budget.<br />

‘‘Damagetocropsfrom floodwaters<br />

depends on how longthe crop was under<br />

water. Longer than 48 hours means the<br />

cropisatrisk of soil oxygen depletion with<br />

reducedoxygen available to the roots,<br />

increasing the risk of plant loss,’’ they said.<br />

Mud andsilt thatcover bulb crops and<br />

kalestems may increase the risk of fungal<br />

and bacterialplant diseases.<br />

Feed budgets ... Winter feed is going to<br />

pose some challenges.<br />

PHOTO: SHELLEY TOPP<br />

‘‘Stockare lesslikely to eat cropscovered<br />

in silt, so expect feedintakes to be lower.<br />

‘‘Considercontaminants thatmay be<br />

risky to stock and staff. Crops and<br />

supplementaryfeed could be contaminated<br />

with overflow from septic tanks,storeof<br />

agricultural chemicals or fertiliser.’’<br />

Once paddocks are dry enough to access,<br />

restoring power and infrastructure is a<br />

priority.<br />

Cattle need to be break­fed on all winter<br />

feed, but wait until conditions underfoot<br />

are suitablefor grazing.<br />

‘‘Re­transition stock back to winter crop,<br />

evenifstock was fully transitioned before<br />

the floods. Thisisespecially important for<br />

cattle grazing fodder beet,’’they said.<br />

There are several potential animal<br />

health risks to stockgrazing floodedcrop<br />

areas, includingclostridial disease,footrot<br />

and hoofdamage, contaminants in flood<br />

water, and copper deficiency. Excessive<br />

ingestionofmud and soil during and<br />

following flood events may result in longertermcopper<br />

deficiency.<br />

Damage adds to woes<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> farmers are taking<br />

stock of flood damage, as it adds to their<br />

winter maintenance workloads.<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> Rural Advisory Group<br />

chairperson Winton Dalley says the<br />

extent of the repair bill from the recent<br />

flood event will not be known for<br />

sometime, but the damage varies for<br />

different parts of the region.<br />

While Mid­<strong>Canterbury</strong> and Selwyn<br />

farmers appear to have born the brunt of<br />

the damage, farmers in the Ashley and<br />

Okuku River catchments were severely<br />

impacted and there are pockets of<br />

damage throughout <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong>.<br />

‘‘There’s more damage in Selwyn and<br />

Mid­<strong>Canterbury</strong>, but we don’t want to<br />

minimise the damage for <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong>, which was still severe in<br />

some areas.<br />

‘‘For those in <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> who<br />

are affected, it’s just as bad as anywhere<br />

else.’’<br />

The <strong>Canterbury</strong> Rural Advisory Group<br />

has prepared areport to the government<br />

which attempts to give some estimate of<br />

the likely costs to <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

farmers in the hope more funding will be<br />

made available.<br />

‘‘There’s no dollars around what the<br />

cost will be yet. Insurance assessments<br />

are still being carried out and there’s an<br />

unknown around the uninsurable<br />

infrastructure and it’s unknown what<br />

government assistance could yet be<br />

provided,’’ Mr Dalley says.<br />

‘‘We can’t send the message that there<br />

is anything coming, but in past events<br />

there has been support available, so we<br />

are still talking to the government.’’<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> farms face repairs to<br />

fences, laneways, access roads, culverts,<br />

land washed away, gravel and silt over<br />

the top of land damage, and water<br />

damage to houses and farm buildings.<br />

There is also infrastructure damage to<br />

roads, bridges, culverts and other council<br />

infrastructure.<br />

In the Waimakariri district the worst<br />

affected areas including Lees Valley,<br />

Okuku, Loburn and some areas near the<br />

coast.<br />

‘‘Some of the farm damage is severe,<br />

particularly in the Lees Valley and<br />

around Okuku and Loburn there’s some<br />

devastated wee properties.’’<br />

In the Hurunui district there are small<br />

pockets of infrastructure and farm<br />

damage, Mr Dalley says.<br />

‘‘For most Hurunui farmers, the effects<br />

of the drought are still of concern given<br />

what is still ahead of us.<br />

‘‘The rain has been hugely beneficial,<br />

but it doesn’t take away the short term<br />

issue of feed supply. That will still be an<br />

issue right through to spring time.<br />

‘‘If we continue to have amild winter<br />

most farmers could get some growth, but<br />

if we have severe weather then the<br />

situation would become more<br />

concerning.’’<br />

The Hurunui Adverse Events Group is<br />

continuing to monitor and respond to the<br />

ongoing effects of the drought.<br />

Final awaits Waikari pupils<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Waikari School’s year 7­8 pupils never<br />

imagined they would be preparing for<br />

next week’s national AgriKids final in<br />

Christchurch.<br />

The small <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> rural<br />

school had never competed in the annual<br />

competition before, ahead of the Tasman<br />

region contest held at the Sheffield A&P<br />

Show in March.<br />

The school has just eight year 7­8<br />

pupils, so ayear 6pupil was enlisted so<br />

the school could enter three teams of<br />

three.<br />

All three teams qualified for the final<br />

race­off of seven teams at the regional<br />

contest, with Kool Keas placing second<br />

and Klassic Keas third to qualify for the<br />

national final alongside regional winners<br />

Karetu Kids, of <strong>North</strong> Loburn School.<br />

‘‘They work very well as teams. They’ve<br />

all got strengths, so it’s about working<br />

together and working out each other’s<br />

strengths and planning accordingly,’’<br />

Waikari School years 4­8 teacher Debra<br />

Lydon says.<br />

‘‘The younger kids are all keen to get<br />

involved next year. They see it as<br />

something exciting for the older kids, so<br />

this is just the beginning.’’<br />

The two teams are ‘‘getting really<br />

excited’’ ahead of the national final and<br />

look forward to wearing their new team<br />

uniforms, which have been prepared for<br />

the event thanks to local sponsorship.<br />

‘‘It’s going to be quite abig event. It’s<br />

hard to anticipate what it’s going to be<br />

like, because we haven’t been there<br />

before, but being close to home we will<br />

have lots of friends and family coming to<br />

support us,’’ Debra says.<br />

In preparation for the event, the<br />

Waikari teams have been learning about<br />

electric fences, weeds, types of wool,<br />

shearing tips, types of farm animals,<br />

different soil types, tying knots, different<br />

supply for the future.<br />

HOCKEY<br />

Rangiora Hockey Club's division<br />

one men's team took home the<br />

points in ahard fought win against<br />

Mid <strong>Canterbury</strong> at MainPower<br />

Hockey Turf.<br />

Neither team was able to break a<br />

nil­all deadlockuntil late in the<br />

third quarter when Tom Flavell<br />

found away through the southern<br />

visitor'sdefence. He then took<br />

advantage of alucky bounce to beat<br />

the keeper.<br />

Asecond goal from apenalty<br />

corner early in the last quarterto<br />

Lachlan Millergave Rangiora<br />

some breathing room. Mid<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong>'s reply goal was too<br />

little, too late.<br />

Heavy rain Sunday afternoon<br />

made for challenging conditions<br />

for Rangiora's Superleague<br />

Championshipteams.<br />

The Colts and Oddfellowswere<br />

almost swimming in their Knock<br />

Out Cup dead­rubberagainst each<br />

other ­won easily by the Colts in<br />

the end but it was more about<br />

which team adapted to the<br />

conditions best.<br />

RangioraPiwakawaka were 5­0<br />

down against Southern United<br />

when they decided to abandon the<br />

game in the face of heavy rain and<br />

surface flooding.<br />

Meanwhile Rangiora Korimako<br />

couldn't find rhythm against a<br />

more physicalWaikirikiri Tuis,<br />

and despite improving through the<br />

game couldn't find the goal needed<br />

to boostits confidence.<br />

In the mid week competition the<br />

Rangiora Hurunui Hares secured<br />

a2­1 win,thanks to goalkeeper<br />

Eira Beverley­Stone who had her<br />

best game of the seasontodeny<br />

Carlton Redcliffs an equaliser.<br />

The Rangiora HurunuiHawks<br />

dominated in its bottom of the<br />

table clash with SouthernUnited<br />

with five different players getting<br />

on the score card.<br />

The men's Ateam scored a<br />

lacklustrewin against bottomof<br />

the table Waikirikiri, while the<br />

RangioraAllsorts had chances<br />

against askilful Hinemoa­Kaiapoi<br />

Kauri team but couldn't buy agoal<br />

in the end. Three goals in the last<br />

quarter by Kauri blew out what<br />

was until then arespectablescore.<br />
