After hours facility still on target

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Rangiora’safter hours facility should

begintotake shape in January.

The facility will provide seven­day

urgent carefrom8am to 10pm,and will

also house other services, including a

pharmacyand radiology services,’

Aconcept design was presented to a

public meeting in Rangiora lastweek by

new Canterbury District HealthBoard

(CDHB) chiefexecutive, Peter Bramley.

Dr Bramley said the board was

committed to providingthe facility as he

gave an overview of healthservicesinthe

Waimakariri.

Health services willinclude

maintainingbeds at Oxford Hospital,and

resourcing the hospitaltoprovidecare for

people closetohome.

Waimakariri MP Matt Doocey, who

organised the meeting, saysthe afterhours

concept plan is ‘‘quite stunning’’.

He says SouthLink Health has

confirmed it plans to startconstruction in

January.

‘‘Unfortunately it comes at the expense

of the Rangiora Hospitalbeing

demolished,’’ he says.

Dr Peter Bramley

Dr Bramley also committedtoa

paramedic servicefor the Waimakariri

area.

‘‘It is important livinginan area likethe

Waimakariridistrict, that you have access

to public service education or health

services, that are comparabletopeople

living in major urban areas,’’ says Mr

Doocey. ‘‘Peopleshould not be penalised

for living in rural areas.’’

The CDHB is keen to engage further

with Waimakariri residents following the

old­style, robust town hallmeeting, at

whicharound200 peopleturnedout at last

Thursday,despite the rain.

Mr Doocey saysresidents and CDHB

representativeswere excited about the

levelofcommunity engagement the

meeting provided,and whichraised not

only concerns, but some greatideas.

‘‘I’mthrilled that this has sparked an

ongoing conversation the CDHB will be

having directly withour community about

creating wrap­around services for our

residents.

‘‘They’ve taken the concerns that were

raised and willbecoming back with some

ideasthat theywill workshop directly with

us as acommunity, and that is very

exciting,’’ Mr Doocey says.

‘‘This putsour residents at the heart of

our health services.

‘‘Many of those who attended are

working in our communityhealth and

aged­care sectorsinWaimakariri, and

they were abletobring someoftheir

concernsabout in­community care and to

feed those concerns through,’’ says Mr

Doocey.

Swimming brings happiness

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Swimming is provingtobejustthe tonic

for ChristinePatterson.

Christine,who has been battling

depression for over adecade,has taken

the plunge,and is back in the pool, which

is proving to be agreat place to find

solace.

Recently she swam100 lengths of

Rangiora’sDudley Park pool.

Her effortswere not just for her own

wellbeing however, but to help raise

fundsfor aSalvation Army project,

Embrace Fiji,aretreat for women.

‘‘Formepersonally, through helping

theseladies in Fiji, Ihave been helped in

return,’’ says Christine.

Her decision to get back in the pool has

been life changing.

She can now do every day jobs like

grocery shopping, and enjoys being back

in the garden.

Her problems began with paininher

Kaiapoi’s proposed aqua play park could

be openbylate October.

Watertest resultstoensurepublic

lack of rain, are now under way.

In apresentation to Monday evening’s

JasonMill and Tony Joseph said water

The proposed site is alake in Kaiapoi’s

NCF Reserve, tuckedinbehindCourtenay

The Waimakariri District Council hopes

to begin public consultation on the project

next week.

Mr Millsaid the trust’s ecologist

completed daily watertests in the days

immediately following the flood eventand

was pleasantly surprised at the results.

‘‘We havecompleted watertests, depth

testsand riparian edge tests,and we’ve

done moretests following the flood. That

was considered aone in ahundredyear

so that’s agood sign.

‘‘We wereabit worried about the impact

Should the projectgoahead,the trust

anticipates the aquapark would close for

aweek,following amajorrain event, to

allowtime for testing to ensurepublic

Following advicefrom Environment

‘‘We don’t needtodoall 45 tests, but we

want to be as diligent as possible,’’MrMill

said.

As part of it’s social outcomes, the trust

is looking to engage with 88 low decile

Racecourse quarry decision due early July

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Adecision on applicationsbyTaggart

EarthmovingLtd, to quarry gravel at the

Rangiora Racecourse,should be known

early next month.

The hearing was closed on Friday,

June 18, after the independent

commissioners hearing the applications,

received Taggart’s right of reply to

submissions.

The panel chair, Paul Rogers, says the

parties can expect adecision‘‘on or

about Friday,July 9’’.

Submitterswho contactedthe North

CanterburyNews believe Taggart’s right

of reply minimisesconcerns raised at the

hearing by residents, and experts.

Theyalso feel the legal submissions

madeonbehalf of Taggart Earthmoving

Ltd,completely ignore many

submissions and those who spoke at the

hearing, apart from expertwitnesses.

Taggart Earthmoving Ltd is proposing

aquarrycovering 14.5hectares, with two

hectares disturbed at atime.

It seeks threeconsents fromECan and

aland­use consent from the Waimakariri

District Council, which would be active

for 15 years.

The proposal attracted404

submissions, with 390 opposing it.

Evidence was given on the first day of

the hearing which began earlyMay, that

the quarrywouldassist Taggart

Earthmoving Ltd in meetingthe demand

for aggregateinthe Waimakariridistrict

withoutthe need for any crushing or

screening on site.

The hearingofthe resource consents

was before two independent

commissioners —chairman Mr Rogers

and John Iseli, both of Christchurch—on

behalf of Environment Canterbury and

OPINION

6 The North Canterbury News, June 24, 2021

Around the electorate with

STUART SMITH MP FOR KAIKOURA

Final report leaves

many questions

The Climate ChangeCommission has

released its final report, and although it

does take astep back from the Draft

Report, it still leaves many unanswered

questions as to how New Zealand will

reach the net­zero emissions target.

The Commissionproposed policies

such as subsidiesonelectricvehicles

and taxes on some internalcombustion

engines,which the Government

announced last week despitepromising

no new taxes.

This policy will not lower emissions,

and it mayeven drive them up, given

that ute sales have gone through the

roof. Unfortunately it will cost

hardworking Kiwis, especiallythose for

whom there are no practical EV options,

suchasfarmers and tradies.

We live in afree country, and we do

not want the Nanny State tellinguswhat

we can or can’t drive. It was galling to

hear the PrimeMinister say that alarge

number of ute buyers are not usingthem

for “legitimate use”, it showsjust how

out of touchshe is.

We could be heading down aslippery

slope here, the Government want to tax

our cars now, but what’s next?

Will we be restricted on what sized

refrigerator we can buy?

This is why we shouldlet the

Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS), do

the heavy liftinghere.

The Climate Change Commissionin

their report said that the ETS will get us

to net zero by 2050 with acost of $50 per

tonne, which is very reasonable, the

danger here is that these poorlythought

out policies may mean we do not get

there at all or we do at acost thatwill

impoverish us. The ETS willallow us to

reach our 2050 net­zero emissions target

through the least cost way.

But most importantly it givespeople

the choice on how they shouldreduce

their emissions, rather than the

Government controlling it through

taxes.

We need to back the market­driven

solution,not costly policies that put our

country further in debt.

KAIKŌURA VIEWS

MAYOR CRAIG MACKLE

People and events

return to Kaikoura

It was good to seesomany people

coming to Kaikoura over the Queen’s

Birthday weekend recently.

The Kaikoura Bike Trails and

Kaikoura Cold Water Classic surfing

events were major drawcards.

Big ups to the community who put the

time in to make these events happen.

Iwas really pleased to seeGina

Solomon on the Queen’s Birthday

honour list.

This achievement recognises all the

work that she has done to protect the

environment in Kaikoura, as well as her

commitment to conservation on a

national level.

Long TermPlan community hui have

gone ahead in town, Goose Bay and

Kekerengu.

In general, Iwould say that we have

had the best response to LTP meetings

that Ihave been involved with.

While no­one ishappy with any rates

increase and everyone has adifferent

viewpoint, thereisarealunderstanding

of the issues facing local government

and most people are agreeing with the

key proposalsthe council wants to focus

on over the next 10 years.

I’d really like people to makea

submission if they agree that we should

improve the roads andfootpaths, start

an urban rubbish collection, support

Destination Kaikoura and review our

out­dated District Plan.

The submission form is online. It is

easy to fill out. Youjust check the boxes

and there is also space to tell us why you

chose thisoption, and other comments

you have on our plan for the next 10

years.

The Three Waters Reform shows the

government is keen on establishing a

small number of large newwater

entities, instead of local councils, which

would deliver water services to

households and businesses.

The next stage in theThree Waters

Reform willbeannounced in afew

weeks, as soon as we know more, we’ll

pass the information on to you.

Take care andifyou can, take some

Dear Editor,

SinceIamstanding for

councillor in the West ward

of the Hurunui District

Council it wouldbean

opportune time to explain

the difference between

having ‘money’ and having

‘wealth’.

Moneyallows you to buy

product, anew car,overseas

trip etc.Ifyou don’t haveit.

Bad luck.

Wealth on the other hand

relates to whatour culture

offers its citizens.

Examples often quoted are

drinkablewater, swimmable

rivers, quality education,

roadsthat don’tneed

constant repair,an

environment that’sa

pleasure to livein, and all

sorts of things that are

availablenomater what

yoursocioeconomic status

is.

Perhaps it is easier to

explain what wealth isn’t or

signs or symptoms of losing

wealth ­MORE taxes, crime,

welfare, pollution,

pornography, bureaucracy,

or LESSresponsibility and

productivity.

The essentialcriteria

councilsmust fulfil is to

provide basic infrastructure

for the residents to build

wealth upon, and to use

ratepayers taxes efficiently

to the maximum benefits of

everyone withinthe district.

Yours,

Richard ERoe BsC, DC,

Endangeredbirds

benefit from flood

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The populations of endangered

braided river birdscould increase

thanks to the recent floodinthe

Ashley/Rakahuri River.

The forceofthe water has stripped

all the weeds fromthe riverbed,

leaving gravelislands,wherebirds

like to nest, free of cover for predators.

Birdssuch as the wrybill,blackfronted

tern, and banded dotterel,

require baregravel to nest on.

The Ashley/Rakahuri Rivercare

Group(ARRG)has found acorrelation

between bird numbers and the amount

of bare gravel.

Afterseveralyears of no large

floods, the beds of smallerfoot­hills

fed rivers such as the Ashley, Opihi,

and Orarihave been overwhelmed by

weeds.

Groupmember Grant Davey says

wherethere weredeep braidchannels

thereisnow high islands,and vice

versa.

All signsofrecent riverextraction

has also beenerased, and the fairway

widened, in some cases by 50 metres or

more,hesays.

“Almost the entire gravel bed of the

riverseems to have been liftedupand

movedbyflood watersresulting in a

complete change in its morphology.’’

Mr Davey saysthe islands are where

the birds prefertonest, and are safest

from predators. Norway rats and stoats

swim to the islands, but other

predators such as hedgehogs and cats

are much less likely to do so.

David Owen, Environment

Canterbury’s principal biodiversity

adviser, braided rivers, says, the

floods have presented the opportunity

to try to keep the river relativelyweedfree.

‘‘Left unchecked, the weeds will

inevitably return.”

ARRG, with regional council

funding, had been about to

mechanically clear 64 hectares of

weedy islands.ARRG is now working

on astrategy to stop the weeds growing

again.

The floods did hit the grouphard,

however. It lost 100 predator traps, out

of 400, during the floods. They were set

along the bermofthe river and around

the estuary, mostly tied to trees or in

scrub, and were swept awayinthe

raging torrent.

AGivealittle page has been set up to

raise funds to buy more trapsbefore

the breeding season startsin

September. To date over $1800 has

beenraised.Traps cost about $50 to

$70 each.

Overthe past 16 years,ARRG has

protectedan18km stretch of the river

withtraps to eliminatepredators,

allowing the braided river birdsto

breedand raise chicks safely.

Theirwork has helped the birds to

hold their own on the Ashley and even

increaseslightly, comparedwith

gradual to catastrophic decline

(dependingonthe species)on

unprotectedrivers.Tohelp go to:

The Widest Music Variety

The inaugural WaimakaririBridge To

Bridge Ultra Marathon60km event

winner Andrew Wanklyn had asharp

reminder about New Zealand winters on

Saturday.

The Christchurch man had been

workinginthe Australianmine industry,

based at Western Australia’sShark Bay,

but returned home afew days ago, and

despite beingrugged up for his

endurance run on Saturday,hewas still

cold at the finish.

‘‘It was 30 degrees in Shark Bay, when

Ileft,’’hesaid. Andrew finishedthe

60km in fivehours, nine minutesand 33

seconds and saiditwas the longestrace

he had ever competed in.

The firstrunnerhome in the Bridge to

Bridge 15kmrun, was Jakob

Cunningham, of Oamaru, who ran the

distancein19minutes and 28 seconds.

His stepfather, Mark Esselink, of

Oamaru won the 30km event, finishing

the distancein2hours10minutes and 55

seconds.

The UltraMarathon included four

events —the 60km Ultra Marathon

starting at the WaimakaririGolf Club,

the 30kmevent from Downs Rd, the 15km

event, starting at HarrsRd, and the 5km,

starting at WaimakaririRiver Park. All

finishedinRaven Quay in Kaiapoi.

The eventwas was organised by Carol

and John MooreofCJM’S Events and was

born from the Waimakariri Bridge to

Bridge MountainBike Race,which was

held in even more winteryweather on

Sunday, using the same routes.

`‘‘Saturday was afantastic day, perfect

for running,’’ Carolsaid. ‘‘`Sundaywas a

little bit damp, actuallyquite wet at

times, but the ridersloved it (judging by)

the smiles on everyone’s face as they

crossed the finish line. Ithink it brought

Shake up of quake-prone buildings

Anew nationalsystemfor

councils to manage

earthquake­prone buildings

comesinto effect on July 1.

Changes to theBuilding Act

also give councils the

opportunity to identify

buildings theysuspect might be

earthquake prone.

The system uses three profile

categories —anunreinforced

masonary building;apre­1976

building, three or more storeys

or 12 metres or greater in

height above the lowest ground

level; or apre­1935buildings,

Floods put stopbanks to the test

By SHELLEY TOPP

The importance of stopbanks was highlighted

‘‘Thisisanother reminder that our flood

‘‘Inthe Ashley River at thegorge, thiswas the

An assessor will start

reviewing buildings thathave

“We have carried out a

desktop study of over 1000

buildings which has helped us

identify what buildingsneed to

be looked at, but it will likely be

Satisfaction from helping others

VOLUNTEER WEEK

By LOUISE LEITCH

Volunteering is away of life

for Norman Maindonald.

He has dedicated more than

40 years of service to the

community in Christchurch,

and more recently, North

Canterbury.

The Rangiora resident, who

volunteers with Community

Wellbeing North Canterbury

Trust as aRestorative Justice

panellist, says volunteering

gives him asatisfaction that

nothing else does.

Aself­professed jack of all

trades, masterofnone,

Norman held variousjobs in

Christchurch, including arole

as manager at Smiths City,

before becoming South Island

sales representative for

Masport.

‘‘I was happily married, with

two children. Ihad agreat job

but Iwas too comfortable, says

Norman.

‘‘My prayer was, if Ican do

something more productive,

let me know.’’

Normanbelieves his prayer

was answeredwhen aserious

car accident in 1984 left him

with afracturedskull and

unable to resume his job. Once

he had recovered sufficiently

he poured himself into prison

ministry,avoluntary role he

had begun while employed

fulltime.

When Norman began

working with men at Rolleston

Prison, some 41 years ago, his

wife Shirley, while supportive

of her husband’s decision,

Volunteer week .. . Norman Maindonald says he gets

‘‘tremendous satisfaction’’ from volunteering.

PHOTO: COMMUNITY WELLBEING NORTHCANTERBURY TRUST

stated categorically thatshe

did not want to be involved.

‘‘But three years later, she

was more involved in the

ministry than Iwas,’’ says

Norman.

The couple took prison

inmates into their home for

what was known as 72 hour

parole, part of aprogramme to

help prisoners nearing their

time for release to transition

successfully back into society.

‘‘They were often men from

the North Island without any

whanau locally to support

them, says Norman. We would

feed them, talk with them.

Shirley and Imust have had

dozens of prisoners through

our home.’’

Norman grew up in Kurow,

NorthOtago and describes his

parents as straight up and

down good people.

‘‘I was brought up to abide

by the rules because Ihad

parents who cared for me,

loved me, but not everyone’s

so fortunate,’’ says Norman.

‘‘I get tremendous

satisfaction from helping

someone who has been in a

heap of trouble to turn their

life around and have hope for

the future.’’

It was Norman’s work with

offenders that in 2003, led

Deirdre Ryan, now manager of

Community WellbeingNorth

Canterbury Trust, to invite

Norman to join apilot

Community projects benefit

Twenty­six community

projects have been

supported by the Kaikoura

District Council totalling

$55,000 over the last year.

The Creative

Communities scheme has

contributed $22,000,while

the CommunityInitiative

Fund added$15,000 and the

Sports New Zealand Rural

Travel Fund has provided

$13,380 forthe community.

‘‘It’s great to see the range

of different projects that

have received funding,from

art classes and sports

equipment through to the

development of amarine

mammal app,’’ community

services manager Susi

Haberstock says.

‘‘These initiatives

highlight the skilland

energy withinour

community.’’

The Creative

Communities fund

supported the 48 Hours in

Kaikouraphoto exhibition,

art classes for adults and

tamariki,the Kaikoura Arts

Trailwebsitetopromote

artists in the district and

Zoetrope drawing classes in

schools.

Funding has alsobeen

made available for two

murals, an art book, an

exhibition, the Kaikoura

Talent Quest, the Kaikoura

Children’s Choir,

Inspiration Container Lego

exhibition and Re(start) Art

workshops.

Art class ... Rosvita Haas teaches an art class to local

school children, funded by the Creative Communities fund.

The council’s Community

Initiative Fund supported a

magician’s performance in

the Kaikoura Hospital Rest

Home, asummer holiday

reading programme, the

Great Kaikoura Whale

Count andTinkertime,a

monthly activity programme

for over65s.

The fundhas also

and go through the

applications.

Restorative Justice service,

that was being developed in

North Canterbury by Safer

Communities Council with the

help of Rangiora Police.

panellist, Norman is now

approaching 18 years as a

volunteer with what was

named the Turnaround

Programme, now known as the

North Canterbury Police

Diversions Panel.

Restorative Justice North

Canterbury, run by

CommunityWellbeing North

Canterbury Trust, provides an

opportunity for victims to talk

to offenders and say how their

lives have been affected by the

offenders’ actions.

Participation is voluntary, in a

facilitated conversation

between offenderand victim.

‘‘Victims can be reluctantto

take part in arestorative

justice conference initially,’’

says Norman, ‘‘but afterwards

they often say it was the best

thing that could have

happened.’’

Losing Shirleyseven years

ago, after 50 years of marriage,

has been difficult, but Norman

remainsaspassionate about

helping peopleasthe day he

began his voluntary service.

‘‘Life isn’t about being abig

shot. Being the wealthiest,

most influential person

around doesn’t mean athing,

that’s just egotism’’, says

Norman.

‘‘We’re here to help others

and if Ican do something to

genuinely help someone else,

why wouldn't I?’’.

Passion for baking bread

By SHELLEY TOPP

Two Rangiora apprentice

bakers are bucking the

nationaltrend of attracting

youngpeople into the

baking profession.

The early­starts put many

youngpeople offtraining to

become bakers.

However, Johnny

Murchison (20) and Nicole

Young(19), who bothwork

at the award­winning

Percival Street Bakeryin

Rangiora are both

passionate about their

career choice, despitethe

earlystarts.

Both Johnny and Nicole

admitgetting to work early

is tough,particularlyfor

Nicolewho is anatural

night owl, but they say

seeinghow much customers

enjoy the bread and other

food they make more than

compensates.

Wayne Rewi, the head

baker at Percival Street

Bakery, says bakingbread is

his passionand he is lucky

to havetwo such talented

apprentices working with

him.

‘‘It is hardtoattract

young,enthusiastic people

into the bakingprofession,

but both Johnny and Nicole

are alsopassionate about

bakingand bread making, so

we are fortunatetohave

Kaikoura

eerily quiet

‘‘Reality is startingtokick in,’’ says

Kaikoura Mayor Craig Mackle.

As winter setsinand with no

international tourists for 15 months,

the towniseerily quiet.

‘‘Hopefully it will pick up abit

nextmonth with the school

holidays.Last winterwas pretty

amazing,’’ Mr Mackle says.

‘‘I think it comes downtoadapting

to the new environment and some

businesses havedone really well,

but you’ve got other businesses who

are dependent on touristsand they

can’t adapt so easily.’’

The North Canterbury Transport

InfrastructureRecovery alliance’s

finalproject, at Peketaand the

Parititahi Tunnels, south of

Kaikoura, is coming to end.

But there is causefor optimism,as

Kaikoura’sMayor’s Taskforce for

Jobshas exceeded its targets. More

than 50 people were placed in jobs

in its first six monthsand funding

has been secured for another year.

‘‘There’s been ahell of alot of

people put into work and they’ve

evendirected peoplewheretogo,

evenifthey fall outsidethe criteria,

so they’re stillhelpingthem which

is good to see.’’

Statistics from the Ministry of

Social Developmentshows there

were66Kaikoura residents on a

Jobseeker’s Benefit at the end of

May.This is the same number as

May 2020.InMay, 2019 therewere

27. ‘‘Unemployment is about half

whatitcould have been and

hopefully we will get that lower too,

butyou’ve got to have the work to be

able to offerthe employment,’’ Mr

Mackle says.

them.’’

Johnny is in charge of

caring for the bakery’s four

bread starters, which all

havenames.They include

the oldest, Boris, which

turns 10 in November.

Nicole,who is gluten free,

specialises in makingthe

bakery’s large range of

gluten­freeproducts.

Wayne saysthere is

somethingspecial about

baking bread.

‘‘There is justsomething

about it. It is not the same

every day.Little thingssuch

Speed limits to be reviewed

Speed continues to be ahot topic in the

Oxford area.

Earlier this month the Oxford­Ohoka

Community Board signed off areport

seeking to consult with the community on

proposed speed limit reviews on roads in

and around the board’s area.

Top of the list is Oxford’s Main Street,

with several residents keen to see the

speed limit reduced to 40kph.

‘‘It’s been ahot topic in Oxford for

quite awhile,’’ board chairperson Doug

Nicholl says.

‘‘We’ve been given the proposed new

speed limits and there’s afew other

roads we thought should be included.

‘‘We’re asking for a40kph speed limit

on Main Street (Oxford) as residents have

been asking us to do something about it.

Whether we get what we want is a

different story.’’

Roads under review include the north

and west Oxford Town entrances, at

Ohoka township and Mill Road from

Ohoka to Kaiapoi.

Significant population growth and the

expansion of urban areas over recent

years means the existing speed limits in

some areas are no longer appropriate,

council staff said in areport to this

month’s board meeting.

Staff propose reducing the speed limit

through Ohoka from 70kph to 60kph and

down to 80kph on the eastern end of Mill

Road.

The board considered the

recommendations made by staff and

included additional locations in

response to concerns raised about speed.

Speed bumps ... The Waimakariri District

Council will review speed limits in Oxford

and Ohoka.

PHOTO: FILE

These will now be considered in a

report to the council next month and the

public will be invited to give feedback

during September and October.

‘‘We want to do everything we can to

make our roads safer, and making sure

speed limits are suitable helps to reduce

the risk of serious injury or worse,’’ Mr

Nicholl says.

‘‘There is always high interest in speed

limits and the public consultation is an

opportunity for people to let us know

what they think and have their say.’’

Cemetery policy unveiled

By DAVIDHILL

Waimakariri’s newcemeterypolicy is

expected to tidy up ‘‘afew grey

areas’’.

The WaimakaririDistrictCouncil

adoptedanew cemetery policy at its

meeting earlier this month,

introducingnew rulesaround the

pre­purchaseofgravesites.

The newpolicy allowsresidentsto

pre­purchaseone plotfor their

exclusive use, butalsorequires the

council to review it every 10 years.

‘‘It’s alot more complicatedthan

people think,’’Deputy Mayor Neville

Atkinson says.

‘‘Ifyou buy aplot for yourchildren,

it might not be used for 60 years and

then we run the riskofrunningout of

room in our cemeteries,but there’sa

wholelot of empty plots.

‘‘Thequestionwas asked:‘what if

peoplewanted to go and buyalot of

plotsand speculate on them’. So

there’s gottobeasensible

compromisetopeople owning plots.’’

Thenew rules shouldprevent the

risk of speculation, with individuals

only able to pre­purchase oneplot for

theirexclusive use.

Singleplots canbereservedfor 10

years and will be subject to arevalidationbefore

the 10 years is up to

determine if theplot is still required.

Thenew policygives effect to the

newcemetery strategy adopted by the

council in October lastyear.

Ross Ditmer saytheir

up for an extra influx of

visitors for their respective

Santaparades.

The river town is first out

of the blocks on Saturday,

December4,followed by

Rangiora on Sunday,

December12.

‘‘Kaiapoi is more than

happytostep up to fill the

void,’’ Mr Pinkham says.

‘‘We arewell underway

with our planning and we

are about to callfor

registrations.

‘‘We were very pleased

with the turnout last year

and we estimated that 25

percent of the peoplewere

from northChristchurch, so

hopefully we will get more

this year.’’

Therewere arecord 120

floats entered in last year’s

KaiapoiSanta Parade, up

from80in 2019,and it was

An important partofthe annual

WINTER FARM MAINTENANCE

Winter feed crops damaged

Flood­damaged winter feed crops pose

challenges for farmers this winter.

Beef+Lamb New Zealand has joined

forces withPGGWrightson Seed’s

veterinary nutritionist Charlotte Westwood

and extensionagronomist nutritionist

Wayne Nichol to offersome advice.

Farmers are encouraged to complete a

feedbudget,prioritising water­damaged

crops, re­transitioning stock back on to

crops, andpaying extra attention to

ongoing crop health, stock health, feed

allocations,and personaland staff safety.

Withupdated feed budgets, farmers can

factor in potential losses of winter crops,

damaged pasture and supplementary feed.

‘‘Itpays to be ruthless. Water­damaged

supplementary feed may not be suitablefor

feeding,’’ theysaid.

‘‘Reassess crops for dry matter yield now,

and again later in winter, as plants may be

lostdue to disease or thecrop may stop

growing due to alack of plant­available

nitrogen in the soil.’’

Review the extent of the damageona

paddock­by­paddock basis and assess

infrastructure damage.

Troughs may need cleaning if

contaminated by floodwaters and may

need‘‘footing material’’ if surrounding soil

is verywet.

Check if kale crops are stillstanding or

beenwashed away, whether swede,turnip

and fodder beet crops are still anchored

and whether or not theyare covered in silt.

Monitorcrops regularly over the coming

weeks to assess plant survival, dry matter

yield and thefeed budget.

‘‘Damagetocropsfrom floodwaters

depends on how longthe crop was under

water. Longer than 48 hours means the

cropisatrisk of soil oxygen depletion with

reducedoxygen available to the roots,

increasing the risk of plant loss,’’ they said.

Mud andsilt thatcover bulb crops and

kalestems may increase the risk of fungal

and bacterialplant diseases.

Feed budgets ... Winter feed is going to

pose some challenges.

PHOTO: SHELLEY TOPP

‘‘Stockare lesslikely to eat cropscovered

in silt, so expect feedintakes to be lower.

‘‘Considercontaminants thatmay be

risky to stock and staff. Crops and

supplementaryfeed could be contaminated

with overflow from septic tanks,storeof

agricultural chemicals or fertiliser.’’

Once paddocks are dry enough to access,

restoring power and infrastructure is a

priority.

Cattle need to be break­fed on all winter

feed, but wait until conditions underfoot

are suitablefor grazing.

‘‘Re­transition stock back to winter crop,

evenifstock was fully transitioned before

the floods. Thisisespecially important for

cattle grazing fodder beet,’’they said.

There are several potential animal

health risks to stockgrazing floodedcrop

areas, includingclostridial disease,footrot

and hoofdamage, contaminants in flood

water, and copper deficiency. Excessive

ingestionofmud and soil during and

following flood events may result in longertermcopper

deficiency.

Damage adds to woes

By DAVID HILL

North Canterbury farmers are taking

stock of flood damage, as it adds to their

winter maintenance workloads.

Canterbury Rural Advisory Group

chairperson Winton Dalley says the

extent of the repair bill from the recent

flood event will not be known for

sometime, but the damage varies for

different parts of the region.

While Mid­Canterbury and Selwyn

farmers appear to have born the brunt of

the damage, farmers in the Ashley and

Okuku River catchments were severely

impacted and there are pockets of

damage throughout North Canterbury.

‘‘There’s more damage in Selwyn and

Mid­Canterbury, but we don’t want to

minimise the damage for North

Canterbury, which was still severe in

some areas.

‘‘For those in North Canterbury who

are affected, it’s just as bad as anywhere

else.’’

The Canterbury Rural Advisory Group

has prepared areport to the government

which attempts to give some estimate of

the likely costs to North Canterbury

farmers in the hope more funding will be

made available.

‘‘There’s no dollars around what the

cost will be yet. Insurance assessments

are still being carried out and there’s an

unknown around the uninsurable

infrastructure and it’s unknown what

government assistance could yet be

provided,’’ Mr Dalley says.

‘‘We can’t send the message that there

is anything coming, but in past events

there has been support available, so we

are still talking to the government.’’

North Canterbury farms face repairs to

fences, laneways, access roads, culverts,

land washed away, gravel and silt over

the top of land damage, and water

damage to houses and farm buildings.

There is also infrastructure damage to

roads, bridges, culverts and other council

infrastructure.

In the Waimakariri district the worst

affected areas including Lees Valley,

Okuku, Loburn and some areas near the

coast.

‘‘Some of the farm damage is severe,

particularly in the Lees Valley and

around Okuku and Loburn there’s some

devastated wee properties.’’

In the Hurunui district there are small

pockets of infrastructure and farm

damage, Mr Dalley says.

‘‘For most Hurunui farmers, the effects

of the drought are still of concern given

what is still ahead of us.

‘‘The rain has been hugely beneficial,

but it doesn’t take away the short term

issue of feed supply. That will still be an

issue right through to spring time.

‘‘If we continue to have amild winter

most farmers could get some growth, but

if we have severe weather then the

situation would become more

concerning.’’

The Hurunui Adverse Events Group is

continuing to monitor and respond to the

ongoing effects of the drought.

Final awaits Waikari pupils

By DAVID HILL

Waikari School’s year 7­8 pupils never

imagined they would be preparing for

next week’s national AgriKids final in

Christchurch.

The small North Canterbury rural

school had never competed in the annual

competition before, ahead of the Tasman

region contest held at the Sheffield A&P

Show in March.

The school has just eight year 7­8

pupils, so ayear 6pupil was enlisted so

the school could enter three teams of

three.

All three teams qualified for the final

race­off of seven teams at the regional

contest, with Kool Keas placing second

and Klassic Keas third to qualify for the

national final alongside regional winners

Karetu Kids, of North Loburn School.

‘‘They work very well as teams. They’ve

all got strengths, so it’s about working

together and working out each other’s

strengths and planning accordingly,’’

Waikari School years 4­8 teacher Debra

Lydon says.

‘‘The younger kids are all keen to get

involved next year. They see it as

something exciting for the older kids, so

this is just the beginning.’’

The two teams are ‘‘getting really

excited’’ ahead of the national final and

look forward to wearing their new team

uniforms, which have been prepared for

the event thanks to local sponsorship.

‘‘It’s going to be quite abig event. It’s

hard to anticipate what it’s going to be

like, because we haven’t been there

before, but being close to home we will

have lots of friends and family coming to

support us,’’ Debra says.

In preparation for the event, the

Waikari teams have been learning about

electric fences, weeds, types of wool,

shearing tips, types of farm animals,

different soil types, tying knots, different

Kaiapoi, Saracens win away

RUGBY

By LINDSAY KERR,PETER

It was normal duty for Kaiapoi

and Saracens when play

resumed in the North

Canterbury LuisettiSeeds

division one rugby competition

on Saturday.

Kaiapoihad to workhard to

beat Ohoka23­15, while

Saracens comfortably

accounted for Ashley 29­0.

Both sides started with

intent.

Ohokastruck first with a

However, the home side

certainlydidn’t sense this and

displayed acourageous

defensive effort in keeping

Kaiapoi scoreless for the

remaining half.

Although down at the break

7­3, momentum had shifted to

the home side. Two

consecutive triestoCodey

Grimes and NacaniellNamata

gave Kaiapoi much needed

momentumat21­3. Ohoka

clawed its way back closing the

margin to 21­15 through tries to

wing,George Wiggins,and

was rewardedwith apenalty

on fulltime to close out the

match24­15. Its loose forward

duo of Jared Smith and Jared

around the park, whileOhoka’s

Mid Canterbury toppled

HOCKEY

Rangiora Hockey Club's division

one men's team took home the

points in ahard fought win against

Mid Canterbury at MainPower

Hockey Turf.

Neither team was able to break a

nil­all deadlockuntil late in the

third quarter when Tom Flavell

found away through the southern

visitor'sdefence. He then took

advantage of alucky bounce to beat

the keeper.

Asecond goal from apenalty

corner early in the last quarterto

Lachlan Millergave Rangiora

some breathing room. Mid

Canterbury's reply goal was too

little, too late.

Heavy rain Sunday afternoon

made for challenging conditions

for Rangiora's Superleague

Championshipteams.

The Colts and Oddfellowswere

almost swimming in their Knock

Out Cup dead­rubberagainst each

other ­won easily by the Colts in

the end but it was more about

which team adapted to the

conditions best.

RangioraPiwakawaka were 5­0

down against Southern United

when they decided to abandon the

game in the face of heavy rain and

surface flooding.

Meanwhile Rangiora Korimako

couldn't find rhythm against a

more physicalWaikirikiri Tuis,

and despite improving through the

game couldn't find the goal needed

to boostits confidence.

In the mid week competition the

Rangiora Hurunui Hares secured

a2­1 win,thanks to goalkeeper

Eira Beverley­Stone who had her

best game of the seasontodeny

Carlton Redcliffs an equaliser.

The Rangiora HurunuiHawks

dominated in its bottom of the

table clash with SouthernUnited

with five different players getting

on the score card.

The men's Ateam scored a

lacklustrewin against bottomof

the table Waikirikiri, while the

RangioraAllsorts had chances

against askilful Hinemoa­Kaiapoi

Kauri team but couldn't buy agoal

in the end. Three goals in the last

quarter by Kauri blew out what

was until then arespectablescore.
