Little engines, big on steam

There was alot of huffingand puffing at

ThePlains complex last weekend but it was

notthe big bad wolf visiting. It was apintsized

collection of miniature steam

poweredmodels attending the Ashburton

Model and Steam Engineers Clubmidwintersteam­up.

Club member Ian Marr said the annual

interclub event sawmembers enjoy aday

of steam action and camaraderie with

fellow enthusiasts from aroundthe South

Island. It was followed by an evening

dinner.

Enthusiasts came from as far afield as

Nelson, Dunedin and Cromwell andthere

wereatleast 11 locomotives, five traction

engines and one boatonsite. Themodels

were allbased on prototypes andmany had

been scratch­built by their owners, Mr

Marrsaid.

TheAshburton club’s youngestmember,

Jacob Gillespie, 16,was checking out the

visiting models takingatrip aroundthe

club’s minirailtrack.

He is in the processofmakinghis own

model NZDSG,drawing on theexperience

of club members along the way.Itwasa

work in progress, which of late had slowed

in part because of international shipment

delays due to covid. He was hopeful of

completion by the endofthe year.

Jacob started withthe steam club two

years ago after being alifelong member

withThe Plains Museum and Historical

Society and then attended an open day at

themodel club.

They let him drive oneofthe models,

‘‘And thatwas it, Iwas hooked,’’ he said.

He joined the modelclub, offhis own

steamasitwas; he had no family members

or mates involved, butwas keen to learn

aboutthe different models.

Neighbourhood Support

links community, police

Neighbourhood Support is the

link between grassroots

community and the Police.

It is designed to support

households by bringing them

together through

neighbourhood connectedness

in an effort to support each

other and build resilience. It

encompasses urban (which can

also include businesses) and

rural households with all

requiring very different needs

in terms of connectedness and

safety. It is something that

Neighbourhood Support is

reviewing under its present

umbrella.

Currently working with

Lesley Symington from Safer

Communities we are looking at

acampaign on theft and

burglary. In my new role Iam

ardent about prevention and it

appears that this is something

that very much needs

addressing throughout Mid

Canterbury. It seems sensible

to be the ambulance at the top

of the hill to ensure that the

community as awhole feels safe

and can ensure its assets and

valuables are kept that way as

well. This applies to both urban

and rural areas.

This of course cannot be done

without the volunteers and

street co­ordinators who

proffer their time in

committing to this cause so

acknowledgement and thanks

must be given to them for their

support in this.

Neighbourhood Support in

Mid Canterbury is funded by

Safer Communities which

allows the role to be involved

with some very special agencies

who intertwine with

Neighbourhood Support and its

goals. However, it was brought

to New Zealand as aPolice

profile so follows the values

and direction of the Police and

its initiatives. Burglary and

theft have currently been

highlighted in Mid Canterbury

as one of the major cause of

concern. Police also comment

on the importance of being

contacted on 105 or 111 in the

event of acrime.

It is said that the strength of a

neighbourhood provides the

backbone to acommunity. We

need to make this as resilient as

we can.

Ashburtonvolunteer AnnMcKay is seeking

support for her mobility­restricted peers,

who havebeen more restricted due to alack

of parkinginthe centralbusiness district.

She is hoping to garner enough support to

approach Ashburton District Council about

getting parkingdispensations ­or

something similar ­for senior­aged

volunteers withlimited­mobility who

volunteer in the central businessdistrict.

Alarge percentage of them were aged

over 80 and restricted from walking any

great distances.

Adispensation would give those

volunteers achance to park close to their

placesofwork,just for the time they are

rostered or scheduledto work, Mrs McKay

said.

Mrs McKay,82, hasvolunteered at St

VincentdePaulfor the past18years and

had noticed an increase in thenumberof

her peers being issued parkingtickets over

the pastfew months.

Most likely duetoextensiverevitalisation

work being done in town andparking being

at premium.

But it was havingadetrimental impact

too.

Mrs McKay said one of her friends ­who

was in her late 80s­had considered giving

Year 13 Students Planning on

TertiaryStudy

It’s that time of year where Year 13 students

who are intending to undertake Tertiary

Study next year, should start making their

decision on whattheyare going to studyand

where.

Students planning tolook for accommodation

at UniversityorPolytechnic Residential College (Halls) arerequired to:

• Complete an online application form which opens on Sunday

01 August 2021;

• Ensure they make an online request for the Common Confidential

Reference(CCRF) beforethe end of August (the sooner the better);

• Offers of accommodation will be emailed from Saturday02October

2021.

Scholarships

There is a large cost in going to any kind of tertiary study, and

scholarships can be away of lessening the burden. There isavast

amountofscholarships thatstudents can apply for, some of which have

already opened.

My keytips are:

1. Settimeaside to find relevantscholarships which can be applied for

2. Check whatdocuments areneeded to supportthe scholarship

3. Contactreferees early

4. Make applications stand out by finding out what the organisation

awarding the scholarship is asking for and tailor the application to

their goals

Iencourage all students to get on to this early.Thisisatime-consuming

activitybut can result in greatrewards.

Flooding Clean Up

Therecentfloodinghas had amassive impactonanumber in our school

communityand local community.

One particular area that has been hit hard are farms in the Greenstreet

area. Theflooding has had long-lasting effects and needs manpowerto

help clean up the debris and fix fences.Overthe last fewweeks Years11

and 12 Agri Academyand Agricultural Scienceclasses have been going

out to help the farmers clear the debris and fix fences. These students

have shown the AshColl Values and have done the College proud.Over

the coming weeks, larger groups of student volunteers will also be

heading out and doing their part.

Embracing and Celebrating Diversity

Over the last fewweeks students have been embracing and celebrating

the diversity ofour AshColl Community. Diversity isthe practice or

qualityofincluding or involving people from arangeofsocial and ethnic

backgrounds and of differentgenders,sexual orientations,and similar.

Celebrating Samoa

At AshColl we have awide range of students from different ethnic

backgrounds.4.7% of our AshColl students identify as Samoan.

The College’s Cultural Committee, led by Shrina Afu, did an amazing

job of highlighting and celebrating the Samoan cultureduringSamoan

Cultural Celebration Week. The week included flying the Samoan flag;

holding aquiz to test students’knowledge of Samoa; Samoan students

dressing in their cultural clothing; and concluding the week with

performances and afashion show. Allthe students and staff thoroughly

enjoyedthe event.

P.I.E.'sGroup

Last week the P.I.E.'s(Pride,Individualityand Equality) Group celebrated

PRIDE week which aims to support Rainbow young people to have a

sense of belonging in our schools and community.

The AshColl Student Executive worked alongside the P.I.E.'sGroup by

hosting an AshColl Pride ‘No Uniform Day’. Students came to school

wearing what they took pride in, whether that was their favourite

sports team, idol, sexuality, or the team they played for.The group also

organised abake sale and flew the rainbowflag,asisshown elsewhere

in this newsletter.

Cook IslandsLanguageWeek

Cook Islands Language week is coming up and will celebrate the

identity, languages, and culture ofstudents from the Cook Islands,

which helps in the journey towards ashared cultural understanding. I

challenge everyone to get involved by either: learning aphrase aday,

exploring artwork from the Cook Islands, and engaging in community

and school events.

Ibelieve itisimportant that wecontinue toactively highlight and

embrace our diverse AshColl community, as these differences are what

makes our school unique and special.

Diversityisnot about howwediffer.

Diversityisabout embracing one another’s uniqueness -

The power of words

“It’s only words, but wordsare all I

have”This wasaline from asongby

the BeeGees manyyears ago.

Words havepower. Theyhavean

impact on us. Theycan be usedto

builduportotear down. They can be

used to hide evil or to expose it. Words

can be false or true.How we choose to

speakchanges lives –both oursand

thosewho hear us.

Consider how wordscan be building

blocks. They can buildpeople up.

Maybe in the sense of givingthem

confidence, maybe in the senseof

giving them knowledge, maybe in the

sense of giving them frameworksto

express or betterunderstandwhat

theyknow.Wordscan bringcomfort in

timesofsorrow. They can be used to

buildrelationships­even without

intentionality, but justinthe courseof

engaging in conversationwith

another.

Then again, wordscan bebattering

rams to knock people back or to

silence them. Clichés canbeused

this way. Thinkofhow often a

disagreement can be met with “That’s

xxxx­phobic”. That used to mean a

fearofsomething, like

claustrophobic being afear of

enclosedspaces.Nowithas become a

condemnation of any who might

disapprove of whatever the” xxxx”

CHRISTIAN COMMENT

might be, as away of silencing

disagreement. Our wordsare

important not only in what they say

but in how it issaid.Inthe Bible we

read in Paul’s lettertothe Colossians

Let your speech always be gracious,

seasoned with salt,sothatyou may

know how you ought to answer each

person–even if in strong

disagreement.

Most of thetimeweshould focus on

words that are building blocks. There

is aneed forwords of comfort in

times of suffering, loss or distress.

Those words are best anchored

outside of ourselves in the ultimate

Comforter,yet expressed throughour

knowing the comfortthatHehas

brought to us.

The ultimate word is Jesusthe

Word of God. He brings both comfort

andchallenge.Aswereadin the

Gospel of John“ThewordsIhave

spokentoyou arespirit andlife”.

Here is the guidetoall ourwords.

May you knowthe blessing of the

Word found in the Gospels.

Draft Open

Spaces Bylaw

This bylaw addresses potential

problems that may arise from

the misuse of Council owned or

managed parks and open spaces.

We areaccepting feedback until

5pm Sunday 11 July 2021.

IntroducingIan Soper,the Council’s

newOpen Spaces manager

IanSopercan step out hisoffice doorto

check out thebest piece of real estatein

town: theAshburtonDomain.

He is Ashburton District Council’s new

OpenSpacesManager and knows looking

after the domain, aswell as other parks

and green spaces all aroundthe district,is

an important job.

Ian has come to Ashburton from Gore

District Council where hemanaged the

parks department there for 16years. His

horticultural working career,which started

as an apprentice in 1980, also covers

private enterprise and local government

experience.

Passing through Ashburton over the

years, he has always been impressed

by Ashburton’s domain, considered the

town’s jewel in the crown, and is now

pleasedtocallthisregionhome.Ianandhis

wifeSuehavefamilyspreadfromNelsonto

Southland, so Ashburton is ideallyplaced

fortravel to see grandchildren either way.

And it is an exciting time to be arriving at

Council when the Ashburton Domain is

about to embark on aperiod ofchange

that will set itupfor the next 100 years

following the adoption of a 30-year

development plan. The plan includes

proposals formoving the main entranceto

Walnut Avenue, adding asealed perimeter

path, and playground improvements.

All green spaces cycle through periods

of development, consolidation and

maintenance.

Officially, the domain and other green

spaces areamenitiestobemanaged, but

theyalso requirepassion and agood longterm

vision.While footpaths canbedug up

and replaced in aweek,the value of atree

planted in the domainmight not be visible

for80years.

Managing the space isabout making it

safe, attractive, usable and educational.

Trees, especiallysome of the oldest ones,

require close attention and there are

plentyofmaturevarieties to keep an eye

on.

Ian hopes in the future to have domain

maps that show the tracks and paths,

and even an app that shares historical

information about particular trees or

areasofthe domain.

PartofhisroleisliaisingwiththeAshburton

Domain User Group, which includes

sporting and other groups using the space,

so information canbemoreeasily shared

about ongoing work.

Ian'swider role as Open Spaces Manager

also includes oversight of the district's

cemeteries, its public toilet facilities,

stockwater race management,support for

reserve boards and general beautification

of the district.

The town’s pioneers, who created the

Ashburton Domain, wouldbewell pleased

with their foresight,and Ian looksforward

to continuing to care for and maintain

these beautiful public spaces.

Ng King Bros ChineseMarket Garden

Settlement highly commended at

Canterbury HeritageAwards

The Ng King Brothers Chinese Market

Garden Settlement in Ashburton won

high praise atthe Canterbury Heritage

Awards as an exceptional cultural

heritagelandscape.

The former marketgarden settlement was

one of four finalists in the outstanding

contribution toheritage award category.

The buildings of the former settlement

are currently being restored in ajoint

projectinvolving theNg Kingdescendants,

Ashburton District Council, and Heritage

NewZealandPouhereTaonga.

The Allens Road site, which is protected as

apost-1900 archaeological siteand listed

as aCategory 1historic place, impressed

judges in the Canterbury awards, who

said it wasanexemplary partnership that

would promote understanding of the

early Chinese settlers’ contribution to the

Canterburyregion over 100 years.

“The site was more than abusiness, it

was where those settlers lived, learned

and socialised, ameetingplacefor South

Island Chinese communities and abase

where Chinese newcomers transitioned

into New Zealand life,” the judging panel

said.

The market garden settlement operated

from the early 1920s until 1964 and was

the largest Chinese community in the

Picturedfromleft to right:Christine King,Ashburton District Councillor Leen Braam, Andrea King,

RobertKing, Arlene Baird(EraConsulting), Cath King,LoisYee, Roger King.

South Island during that time.

Once restored, the grounds will be open

to the public as acommunity heritage

park and will tell the story ofChinese

immigration to New Zealand, aswell as

how the buildings wereused and what it

wasliketolive on the settlement.

In addition to restoring the heritage

buildings, picnic areas, walkways, and

open spaces for informal recreation are

planned.

Ashburton District Council Community

Services Group Manager, Steve Fabish

said that it wasanhonour forthe Ng King

project to make ittothe finals of these

prestigious awards alongside such ahigh

calibreofentrants.

“This isnot only an acknowledgement

of the contribution these early Chinese

settlers made toNew Zealand’s history,

but also awonderful recognitionofall the

hard work that isgoing into saving and

restoringthe site,”hesaid.

The siteisregarded as the lastremaining

example of a20th Century Chinesemarket

garden settlement in NewZealand.

Mount Huttbikepark’s snappynewsign

Expect to seethe Mount HuttBikePark

blowingupon social mediasoon, thanks

to abig, colourful sign at its entrance.

The sign, which is fixed in the ground with

repurposed steel irrigation pipes, isthe

work of Methven sculptor Hannah Kidd,

who cycles the park’s mountain trails

herself.

The top ofthe sign is arainbow made

of corrugated iron and there is space

underneath for mountainbikers totake

photos, with the Mid Canterburyplains as

astunning backdrop.

Hannah made the sign for Bike Methven,

avolunteer group thatruns the bikepark,

and the work has been supported by a

$5336 grant from the Ashburton District

Council’screative communities fund.

The bike park attracts ridersfromall over

the South Islandand is accessed off the Mt

Hutt skifield road. It contains over 30km of

trails, including many thatare suitable for

riding in the winter –meaning visitors to

the area in winter canstill havefun if the

mountain is closed.

The park has aloyal and growing group

of users in Mid Canterburyall year round

and attracts day and weekend riders

from Christchurch and further afield. It

hosted the South Island SecondarySchool

Mountainbike Championships earlier

this year,bringinghundreds of ridersand

supporterstoMethven.

Hannah ran a competition during

lockdown last year forideas forthe sign’s

design.

“We had loads of really great entries and

ended up settling on the rainbow idea.

We wanted the signtobebright and eyecatching,

something iconic that people

would want to have their photos taken

with.”

The sign itself is made from steel and

flattened out corrugatediron. It has been

coated with aspecial zinc anti corrosion

product and then painted. Hannah has

been working on it steadily all this year.

Whilethecreativecommunitiesgrantwasa

greathelp,Hannahhasalsohaddonations

of time from committee members and

friends with usefulequipment. The posts

for the sign are from old irrigation pipes

donated by local farmer David Keeley

and concrete was donated by Methven

Trucking.

Hannah said thepark wasaone-stop shop

forbikers.

“We love it as afamily, but for different

reasons.Ilovetheclimbs,whereasthekids

areinspiredmost by being shuttledtothe

downhill tracks. There areaccessible trails

that caterfor folk who arejust starting out,

good challenging intermediatetrails with

rewarding climbs that lead to some quite

rowdydownhill tracks.

“We wanted the signtorepresent all of the

above and be welcoming.”

BikeMethven president Ricky Brown said

Sculptor Hannah Kidd enlisted husband

Richard Morris, a telehandler machine

and fellow bikers Cam Bisset and Fred

Holmberg to manoeuvre the Mount Hutt

bike parksign in place.

the sign would be agreat talking point and

the group wasgratefultothe artistic skills

of Hannah.

The sign is thefinishing touch to awider

project at the carpark area that has

involved anew post and rail fence and

native planting.

Ricky said those who had helped included

fencing contractor Andrew Morgan, Greg

Meadows, Craig Cullimore, landscaper

Dell Phillips and Morris Contracting.

The bike park is on land owned by Sir

Graeme Harrison, who is also amajor

supporter of it becoming apermanent

community asset.

Mercedes Benz AClass AMG 45 Shatch.

Merchatchtopperformer

BY BOB NETTLETON

There areaplethora of high performance‘hot

hatches’ on our market, but fewoffer

anywhere near the‘sizzle’ofthe sensational

Mercedes Benz AClass AMG 45 S.

Thisscintillating compact five­door hatch

is in aperformanceleague of it’s own and a

major driving forceinthis vehicles

development. Mercedes Benz has created a

2.0 litre turbo charged motor that’s the most

powerfulonthe planet, withanoutput per

litre of 155 kW.The new­generation

Mercedes­AMG A45S4MATIC liftsthe

performance bar much higher than its hard

charging predecessor, and afull redesign

from the engine and transmission throughto

the bodystructure.

This isn’t acar for thefaint hearted in terms

of both performance and price.Asix digit

$111,000 basepricesticker sees to that. An

optional AMG edition1package on thetest

vehicle pushed the asking priceout to a

whopping $119,000. Even taking into account

the phenomenal performanceonoffer, thisis

still aseriously large sum of moneytooutlay

for asmallishhatch, albeit no ordinary one.

At the heart of this model is amilestone

engine designachievement for Mercedes­

AMG –aturbochargedfour­cylinder engine

generating an astonishing 310 kW of power

and 500 Nm of torque.Ithas the perfectgearchanging

companion in anew 8automatic

dual­clutch transmission ready to play hard

and fastwith eight ratios at is disposal, and

gearshiftsmeasured in milliseconds.

Incredibly quick off the mark and super

responsive rightacross the rev range,thisisa

genuinehard­wired performancehatchthat

lives up to all the hype around it andmore. A

delightfully throatysporty exhaust note

provides the perfect sound track, for one of

the rockstarsofthe premium ‘hot’ hatch

scene.Almost as impressiveasthe withering

performance, is just howreadily it adapts to

the motoring mundane such going to the local

supermarket forthe weeklyshop.This ‘hot’

hatch will be one of the coolest customers in

the supermarket carpark!

The testcar wasimpeccablyfinished. All

the switches andcontrolfor lights, wipers and

indicatorsare easy to find andoperate. This

is acompact luxuryhatch withonly adequate

passenger andload space.

Standard safetyincludes drivingassistance

package, active lane change assist andmulti

beam headlights with adaptivehigh beam

assist, sparingthe driver the tedioustaskof

dipping the vehicles lights foron­coming

open roadtraffic at night.The test carrode

regallyonimposing 19­inchalloys, while the

driver is kept snugand comfy in AMG

Performance Seats.

AMG’sPerformance4MATIC all­wheel

drive systemisstandard. WithDYNAMIC

SELECT, the vehiclecharacteristics can be

tweakedbyasimple touch of abutton, that

seesthe systemset about modifying the

engine, transmission, suspension,steering

andair conditioning to meet thedriver's

preferences. There are fourdriving modes,

“Comfort”, “Sport”, “Eco” and “Individual”.

This is technologythat works andlargely

delivers on what it promises. You would

expect, wellatleast Idid, that ride quality,

would take abackseat in such ahyper

focused performancehatch. To Mercedes

credit,they have factored in enough bump

absorbency ability to effectively manage

invasive suspension noiseand much of the

abrasiveness associated with asuspension

system tuned for optimumroad holding. The

handling like the performanceisprodigious

with levels of grip andtraction from the

suspensionand 4WD system, that arenext

level and beyond. Mercedes have pulled offa

stunner to produce arideand handling

package worthyofthis genuine X­factor

performancehatch.

Apple trees ‘confused’

Some of the apple trees in Dave

Thomson’s orchard are confused

and have re­blossommed and are

now fruit­bearing.

The lifestyle blockowner lives

5km from Hinds and has about40

older variety trees on his property.

Every year the trees blossomin

Spring and Dave picks his apples in

February, before the birds get them.

He enjoys the fruit and feedsany

surplus to his animals.

Recent new blossom on three

trees caughtDave’s eye and there

are now golf ball­sized apples

growing.

‘‘I couldn’t believe it. I’m

confused,the trees are confused and

they thinkit’s spring again.’’

He said autumn had been mild

this year,but the apples would not

enjoy and survivewinter frosts.

Dave, whoisretired and aformer

rural realestateagent, has lived on

his property for more than 20 years

and has never seenwinter blossom

or fruit before.

‘‘It might be the sign of things to

come,who knows.’’

Apple trees in Dave Thomson’s Hinds

orchard are bearingunseasonal fruit.
