Dining out ... Jean Laming with three of the guests at The Fools Dinner.

Lamenting the loss of Christchurch villas

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The Fool’s Dinner is giving visitors to the

HurunuiLibraryinAmberley, plenty to

dineout on.

Thirteen oil paintings of guestsand the

hostofadinner party,hanging on theeast

walloflibrary, are curiously funny.

But the story behindthe exhibitionand

whatpromptedlocal artistJean Laming

to paint them,isanythingbut.

Irritated by whatshe saw as ‘‘developer

greed’’in ridding theChristchurch

landscape of beautifulold homes and

spacious sprawlingurban gardens,she

was promptedtoput paint brush to

canvastotellher story.

EachcaricatureatThe Fools Dinner has

astory, starting withthe real estate agent

who has thrown theparty for acollection

of society —some withbeautiful old

homes,the Man of theCloth,who keeps his

friendthe developer informed of dying

parishioner’savailableproperty,while

the Lady SmokingaCigarette isn’tgoingto

sell, but the foodand wine made it

worthwhile going to the dinner.

Jean, whofor thepast fouryears has

beenanAmberley resident,and ‘‘loves’’

the rural village, became angry at the

desecrationofbeautifulold homes when

she lived in Christchurch severalyears

go.

She chose to liveinastreet surrounded

by lovelyold villasand ‘‘incredible’’

gardens. Butmany were now gone,

bulldozedbypropertydevelopers, and

replaced by ‘‘four horrendous’’

townhouses on oneoccasion.

‘‘It is kind of sad,’’ saysJean.

Jean began painting when shewas

‘‘very small’’.

At 14 shewon the Tauranga Art Society

prize,twice,The Auckland StarArt Prize,

as wellasseveral otherawards.

Thethen Curatorofthe Auckland

Gallery, Eric Westbrook,suggested she

should go to studyinthe United Kingdom.

ButJean got sidetracked and spent some

years in Australia,meeting Sam

Fulbrook, thewinner of the prestigious

Archibald and WynnePrizes.

He became hermentoruntil she finally

leftfor England.

She boughtahouse in Spain where she

lived formanyyears, andtravelled

extensivelypaintingmural commissions

in the United Kingdom,Geneva,New

York,Spain, Iran, Australia,and New

Zealand.

Shehas hadmanysoloexhibitions in

Spain,the United States,Italy, New

Zealandand Australia, and participated

in joint exhibitionsinthe United

Kingdom.

Her recentworks includemurals in

Kaikoura,where shelivedbeforemoving

south to Amberley.

Boutique gin captures Kaikoura

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Agin distillery, tucked awayinthe

foothills of Mt Fyffe,iscapturing the

spiritofthe Kaikoura region.

Woolshed and Shearwater Gin,are

tantalisingtastebuds with locally

foraged botanics from the slopes of Mt

Fyffe,the Kaikoura mountain range,

and the coastline.

Justine Schroder’ssmall batch

artisan gin has not only captured the

imagination of the many people now

buyingitonline, but was also

recognisedatthe New Zealand Spirits

AwardsinAuckland lastweekend.

Justine who launches her gin today

(Thursday, July 1), in Kaikoura, won the

Long story short New ZealandEmerging

Product award.

She really only attended the awards

to network, as her gin she distills in a

littleworkshopontheir Mt Fyffe farm,

had barely gone on the market.

‘‘It was amazingtowin. There were52

entries,’’ says Justine.

She begansearching for something to

turn her handto, having given up her

job as amidwife after her children

arrived.

‘‘I couldn’tdooncall work becauseof

the kids, and Ihad been searching for

thingsfarmers can do to diversifyonthe

farm,’’ she says.

‘‘I lovetodrink gin,and the New

Zealand gin industryisreally cranking.

‘‘I am just anewbee,but Iwant to

produce aboutique gin so people can

enjoy aglass with some organic tonic,

and garnishes,’’she says.

She uses botanics sourced from the

slopesoflocalsmountain and the area,

creating two distinct blends.

Supporting local and sustainability

are two of the key ingredients in the

venture

Woolshed is aLondon dry stylegin

where Juniper is ‘‘the hero’’.

Justine says she got her inspiration

from the farm, pairing earthy nutty

tones foundinkanuka,fresh mint and

floral elderflowers, withcoriander and

angelicaroots, giving it abold smooth

flavour.

Shearwater gin is the opposite

sensation.

Justine pairs rosehipand blue borage

flowers fromthe highcountry with

native seaweed (Karengu) whichis

foundonthe Kaikoura coastline.

The blend is oceanic, fresh, fruity,

lightand crisp.

Both gins can be purchased through

the Mt Fyffe Distillery website, by

Hurunui council confirms 8.49% rate rise

A$1million shortfall in fundingfrom

Waka Kotahi/New Zealand Transport

Authority, has seen the Hurunui District

Council committing to further debt to

maintainits roading network at the

current level.

The councilapproved funding the

shortfallinits Long Term Plan (LTP), for

2021­2031, after last minute receipt of the

indicative fundingproposal from the

agency.

Chiefexecutive Hamish Dobbie says the

roading infrastructure is vitalasameans

to support the connectedness of rural

communities and the national economy.

‘‘Yes,council was disappointed in the

amount of funding available, but we

remain committed to maintaining the

roadingnetwork to the best condition that

finances allow.”

The LTP document, Finding the Fair

Way was finalised at an extraordinary

meeting yesterday (June 30). It follows

consultationacross the district, and

consideration of submissions.

Mr Dobbie says the key elements in the

LTP are closely aligned to key council

infrastructure—three waters and the

transport network.

He says it also reflects public services

the council delivers, particularlyinthe

areas of waste managementand social

housing.

As aresult, the averagerate increase

will rise to 8.49%for the 2021/2022 year. A

4.99% rate increase is proposed for the

2022/2023 and 2023/2024 years.

“While council acceptsthe 8.49% rate

increase is challenging, it is of the view it

is prudent at this time, to minimise

operational debt, given the uncertainly

that faces Local Government nationally.”

For the final seven years of the LTP, the

proposedrate increase is 2% per annum.

‘‘This plan will ensure that the rating

effectsofCovid­19 are adequately dealt

with and that the roadingdebt is

eliminated by the end of June 2024,’’ says

Mr Dobbie.

While council accepts the 8.49% rate

increase is challenging, it is of the view

that it is prudent at this time,tominimise

operationaldebt given the uncertainly

that faces Local Government nationally.”

Vaping in the spotlight at RHS

Vaping ... Rangiora High School students and staff join forces to

fight vaping.

PHOTO:ABIGAIL CHESSUM

By ABIGAIL CHESSUM

Awar on vaping is being waged

at Rangiora HighSchool.

It is being led by several

students and teachers at the

school due to their growing

concern about the recent

vaping trend hittingthe New

Zealand high school scene.

They are also concerned

aboutthe openingofavape

shopabout 750 metresfrom the

school.

Shemya Jones­Bloomfield

and Kirriana Sutton, two Year

12 students,have put posters

around the school, advertising

the negative effectsofvaping

they feel many studentsneed

to know.

They are not only targeting

the issue because it is

becoming awider New

Zealand one, but also because

they want to spread awareness

to young students.

‘‘We saw howimportant it

wouldbetospreadawareness

around it becausewefeel alot

of the younger kids,especially

here at Rangiora High School,

see what the older kids are

doingand theycopy them.”

said Shemya.

Rangiora High teachers and

staffare supportingthe efforts,

pulling out all the stops to

combat vaping, including

tightening up on out of class

passes, checking up regularly

on where vapingoccurs,

educating studentsthrough

assemblies and using ministry

providedsignage.

PrincipalKaren Stewart

says it is illegal to vape on

school sites, due to achange in

legislation lastyear, so there

were consequences.

‘‘Vaping is out thereinthe

community. It’sinthe movies,

you see it on TV, so therefore

we’ve got asection of our

community thatthinkvaping is

the thingtodo,’’ she says.

In 2019 asurvey showedthat

an estimated12percentof

Year 10 students, aged 14 to 15

years, vape on acasual basis, at

least monthly, and about3%of

Year 10 studentsvape daily.

Vaping,unlike smoking, can

be flavoured whichgives it

furtherappeal to students. The

good taste in vapes can mask

it’s negative effects, and only

makes themmore addictive.

‘‘I thinkother young people

think they’re ok because

they’reusing vapejuices,

which taste good, therefore

make themthink they’re safe,’’

says Mrs Stewart.

Studieshave shown vaping

has as many negative effects as

smoking.

Chemicals suchaspropylene

glycol and flavourings are

inhaledthrough vape, as well

as Vitamin Eacetate, a

thickening agent, whichcan

potentially damage the lungs.

Nicotine is acommon

substance in most vapes.

Concernisgrowing and it is

recommendedyoung people

need to treat vaping as a

harmful substance. As more

peoplebecomeaddicted to

vaping, there is less of achance

of removingthe trend in

youths. ‘‘Just don’t do it’’

Shemyasays.‘‘Just don’t.You

don’t look cool when you follow

what everyone else is doing.’’

New business bringing memories to life

By SHELLEY TOPP

Anew business callediRemember is

bringing memoriesofthe dead back to life

usingaquickresponse (QR) code.

The business is the brainchildof

Kaiapoi’s Ben O'Reilly, Paul King, his

employeratGraceworks Recycling, in

Flaxton, near Rangiora, software engineer

Dan Rosenbrock, of Halswell, plus Paul’s

nephew Sam McKay, whoisafilm student

at theVictoria UniversityofWellington.

Ben approached Paul about creating a

QR code, similartothe Covid­19 tracer

code,toaccess amemorial page for

deceasedloved ones at cemeteries and

othermemorial sites.

Ben suggested establishing anew

business together. They brought Dan and

Sam on board and began workingon

establishingthe iRememberwebsiteearly

last year. ‘‘Everyonehas an equal input

into this project,’’Ben says.

Once the memorial marker QR code has

been placed at amemorial site, anyone

with asmartphone can scan the codeand

view photos, videos and images of the

person.The iRememberservice comes

with three subscription options, monthly,

yearly or lifetime. Subscriptions can be

cancelled at anytime with no continuing

contracts or obligations.

Ben saysthe initiativewas createdto

share the legaciesand help preserve

memories of their lovedones.

‘‘Everyonehas ahistory, astory to tell, a

lesson to teach, alife they have lived, a

legacy,’’ Ben says. The motivation for the

business came from the death of his

brother, Jamie O’Reilly who died in acar

crashin2008.‘‘He was cremated and his

asheswere scattered to the wind,’’ Ben

says.‘‘My familybuilt amemorial chairfor

Jamie, but it doesn’tshow what an

amazing person he was. It doesn’t allow

me and my familytohear his voice or see

his face again to sharethe memories we

haveofhim or for Jamie’s story to be

preservedfor my children or their

grandchildren.’’ AQRcode memorial

marker has now been createdfor Jamie’s

memorialchair to access hismemorial

page on the iRemember website.

In winter,thereisalways interesting

things to do in Waimakariri.

My familyand Ienjoyed visiting

Oxfordatnight thisweekend to look

at the winter lights, as businesses

and homes tookpartinthis years

WinterLights competition.

On Sunday,weenjoyedviewing the

wakaatthe KaiapoiMarina as part of

the Matarikicelebrations in

Waimakariri.

Our stunningriver madea

wonderful backdrop forthe beautiful

waka, whichprovided agreat

learningopportunity forthe kids.

As National’s MentalHealth

spokesperson, and as aCanterbury

MP whoisfrequently approached by

residents telling me they wanttosee

action and not rhetoric in the mentalhealth

space, Ibelieveitisakey part

of my roletohold the governmentto

accountthroughquestioning

ministersinParliament.

Lastweek,Iascertainedfrom the

Health Ministerthat despite

promises, verylittle hasbeenspent

on in­patientmental­health

facilities.

In fact, promisedspending has

resulted in only five extra acute

mental­healthbeds.

Iwas disappointed by the

minister’s responsetopressurefrom

the mediaattention thatcame from

my questions,which was to saythat a

review of thespendingcouldbe

announced. Thisisnot goodenough

for New Zealanders strugglingtoget

help.

What asuccessfulmeetingwehad

in theRangiora TownHallwith the

Canterbury District HealthBoards

newchiefexecutive,Peter Bramley.

ThefeedbackIgot from the CDHB

wasthatthey reallyappreciated this

model of communityengagementand

will be working closely withour

residents around the issues that

were raised.

It is great to be able to update

everyone thatwecan expect

construction of our newafter­hours

facilitytostart in January.

It wasalsoreassuring to be

reminded at themeetingthat a

paramedic is availableeveryevening

to visit and assesspeople in their

homes.

This is something we have

especiallyfor our Waimakaririarea,

Response to floods

Waimakariri celebrated international

volunteer week duringthe past week.

As acommunity we couldn’t function

without fantasticvolunteers who

generously give their time in support of

great causes.Inthe last 12 months

council’s community team estimate over

one million hours have been freely given.

Ahuge thank you to all who generously

give of your time to support our

community.

Flooding

The flood eventafew weeks ago has

transitioned from emergency to arecovery

response.

Council staff are managing 30 work

streams, aroundrestoring road access,

fixing storm waterinfrastructure and

providing support to affected landowners.

It is estimated the cost to our districtwill

be around $3 million.

We hope asignificantportion of this will

be recoverable throughthe Government,

especially in the area of roading. We are

continuing to work with landowners to

understand their issues and how best we

can support them and connectthem to the

right service.

We appreciated the support of the

Government, and Minister Kris Faafoi who

visited the welfare centres and the

Emergency OperationsCentre to reach out

and offer support. Two weeks ago Iagain

met with Minister Faafoi to stress thatthe

uninsured cost and hardship now faced by

our communitiesand landowners who

have been adversely affected by this

floodingevent is significant. The

Government’s reliefpackage for

Canterbury of $500,000 was simply

inadequate.Infact it would barely cover

Future flooding in storms will only get worse -farmer

By JOHN MCCASKEY

The Hurunui area escaped lightly in the

recent rainstorms.

The lower branchesofour creeks,

streams and rivers onlycaused abit of

inconvenience withwashoutsand slips.

However, thankstofour decadesof

neglect, and the Resource Management

Act, the predictions of thoseofuswho

grew up with actual on the ground

experienceway back in the 80s and 90s,

backed up by governmentfinanced

catchment/drainage boards, wereignored.

Now we can onlysit back and say ‘‘told

you so’’.

Whathappened was no “act of God’’. It

was purely and simply the result of

government neglect/responsibility,

handed to bureaucratswith little

collective life experience.

Now all New Zealand is paying the

price, and with awarmingclimate

spawning moreunreliable storm periods,

it can only get worse.

Every time Itake aroam aroundthe

backroads, some Ihaven’t travelledfor

30+ years,Iam horrifiedbywhat Isee.

Streamsand creeks chokedwith yearsof

accumulated debris —willows, old mans

beard —all ahaven for the exploding

weeds/vermin.

What hitsmehardest is where have all

the sheepgone, and the farming families

that keptthe country clean. Ihave seen

hillsides of forestry,nofirebreaks, slash

waiting to slide off into the catchment

areas,volunteer wilding escapees from

forests establishingthemselveson

roadsides —and some nassella tussocks —

miles from Waipara.

There is lots of official bleating from

those on high about the state of natures

affairs. It is apity they can’t do anything

more practical than blame the farmers.

How longsince you heard the skylarks

singing, and saw the wax eyes and finches

flitting around.Isaw alonely fantailthe

otherday whereonce theywere very

common. All but gone thanks to the

government sponsoredenvironmental

neglectofthe “commons”.Upuntil our

caretaking responsibilities were usurped

by the RMA that was part of what we did

—every day —look after the land. A

downpournow couldstartanavalanche of

rubbishbecause the ground is saturated

for the first time in adecade. Willows are

already eroded waiting to go, and alogjam

situation could eventuate —then boom,

down she comes —noWaiparabridges.

The alarming pity is popularitypolitics

rule,regardless of party, so don’t expect

any improvement in the near future.

Volunteers keep trains on track

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Thanks to 300 to 400 hours of voluntary

work done on­site each week, the Weka

Pass Railway charitable society

continues to build up ahead of steam.

From Monday to Sunday, there is

always work happening at Waipara, the

Glenmark and Waikari Stations, and

behind the scenes.

Monday is earmarked for businesses,

schools and tour group charters to visit,

with shift­workers and semi­retired

volunteers looking after the visitors.

Tuesday is one of the busiest days of

the week at the depot as the carriage

restoration team, apassionate group of

carpenters, painters and anyone else

enthusiastic enough to lend ahand,

gather.

The 1930s carriages are now cared for

more than ever thanks to the efforts of

the passionate crew.

The engineering team also meet at the

depot on Tuesdays, and activities range

from locomotive maintenance to the

completion of rolling stock mechanical

inspections, along with maintenance

and even gardening.

The track gang arrive on aWednesday

comprising about half adozen

committed volunteers who work rain or

shine to help keep the 1881 built stretch

of permanent way in safe working order.

They work on arange of tasks from

sleeper replacement and ballasting to

maintaining the bridge and 62 culverts.

The executive committee of the

charitable society meets on Thursday

nights, at least once amonth to make

decisions about the operations, projects,

marketing and financing of the society's

current and future undertakings.

Friday is typically quiet though

volunteers often turn up. It is not

uncommon for charters to be booked for

Friday nights, particularly in spring and

early summer.

Some volunteers, particularly the

younger crew and out of towners, choose

to stay at the railway for the weekend to

volunteer, socialise and watch the trains

roll by at night. There are always plenty

of beds in the bunk car accommodation

carriage.

Saturday is the main work day at the

Waipara depot, beginning with DE­loco

shunting vehicles around to get them in

the appropriate positions.

Tasks can vary from brake overhauls,

to installing heaters in carriages, and

repainting wagons or locomotives.

Sunday is operation day. If steam

hauled, the driver, fireman and loco

trainee will be on the job by 6.30am to

light the fire. By 9am, the rest of the

crew arrives, with the train departing at

11.30am, arriving at the Waikari Station

at about 12.30pm, before returning to

Glenmark.

Asecond round trip runs at 2pm,

returning to Glenmark at 3.45pm.

By 5pm, the engine crew head home,

exhausted, and always with awhite

smile, contrasting against afilthy face.

adopted by the council asitwas

considered administratively costly and

was not consulted on. The error is

WASTE DISPOSAL LEVY: Due to increasing waste costs

from 1 July, including the waste disposal levy (a central

government charge) which is rising from $10 to $20 per tonne,

the cost of our refuse bags are increasing from $3.00 to $3.30

each. Gate fees for waste via Amberley Transfer Station has

increased from $255/tonne to $268/tonne. Revised rates at

our other Transfer Stations also apply.

EARTHQUAKE PRONE BUILDINGS: Anew national system

for managing earthquake-prone buildings which came into

effect on 1July 2017 has meant that HDC is now required to

identify potential earthquake-prone buildings. The three profile

categories are: anunreinforced masonry building; apre-1976

building three or more storeys or 12 metres, or greater in

height above the lowest ground level; or apre-1935 buildings,

one or two storeys.

Balmoral Fire Lookout awinner

Acommunity effort to restore the Balmoral Fire Lookout has

been recognised at the recent Canterbury Heritage Awards.

It received joint first place alongside The Arts Centre Te

Matatiki Toi Ora, inthe ‘Public Realm Saved and Restored’

category this month.

Hawarden Waikari Lions Club members have dedicated

numerous hours tothe restoration ofthe Lookout, which was

built in 1940 to accommodate astaff member employed to

keep watch and report on any fire risks in the Balmoral Forest.

Due towildfires instate forests becoming extremely common,

12 of these lookouts were built throughout Canterbury from

1922 onward, of which only four remain.

Fun

fact!

Aword fromyour Mayor, Marie Black

The past month has served us agenerous dose of challenging

weather, culminating in agiant leap from seriously dry to very wet

conditions.

June 2021 will be infamously remembered for its back to back

significant rain events, with some unusually mild days in-between.

Across Canterbury were great displays of community spirit both

rurally and in the urban areas, people helping each other to move

stock and get belongings above the line of the encroaching water.

The Government has released some funds to assist landowners in

their recovery from the floods, the criteria for dispersal yet to be

determined.

Many of us had our ‘boots filled’ with wisdom last week when the

All Black’s mental skills coach Gilbert Enoka spoke to apacked

hall at Glenmark Rugby Club. He stated that “Clear thinking is

KING” and discussed the importance of balance to boost your

energy, focus, creativity, productivity, and one’s happiness. These

components are essential as we all grapple with conditions within

our lives outside of our control.

Iamvery pleased to be receiving afurther round of funding for the

Mayor's Taskforce For Jobs programme. This influential scheme

has seen 50 young people from Hurunui into sustainable

employment over the past twelve months. It is agreat credit to the

young people, their employers and HDC who have worked in

collaboration to ensure this success. Ilook forward to ensuring

continued strong outcomes for the year ahead.

We are almost there with the sign off of our Long Term Plan

‘Finding The Fair Way’ –this is asubstantial body of work in the

life of Council planning and preparation for the next 10 years.

Without your input it is adocument without voice, and Iamgrateful

for those who have taken the time to provide feedback on the

proposal.

Recently Ihave had the privilege to be part ofmany volunteer

awards nights, for both Fire Brigades and St John. Ithank you all

for this contribution to our fantastic district - being called a

volunteer is a precious title and one that is to be admired-

“Volunteers don't get paid -not because you are worthless, but

because you are priceless.”

Kia kaha and thankyou.

"The importance of balance to

boost your energy, focus,

creativity, productivity, and

one’s happiness......."

In 20/21 from Hurunui -more than 600 tonnes of glass has been crushed and used in roading, more than 170 tonnes ofscrap

metal has been recycled, more than 450 tonnes of paper, card, plastic bottles and cans have been recycled via EcoCentral in

Christchurch, and more than 150 tonnes of green waste has been converted into mulch. Clean paper, card, plastics (1,2 and

5), food and drink cans can be dropped off to any ofHurunui transfer station for no charge.

Embrace Fiji given aboost

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Young entrepreneurs ... Sophie and Christina are hoping their

magazine, titled Aeipath, will be successful.

Business competition

Anationalcompetitionis

unearthing somebudding

young entrepreneurs at

Rangiora High School.

Year 13 Rangiora High

competition aimedatthem

So far students in the class

have invented self drying

bags, biodegradablehand

sanitiser pods and even

educationaltoiletpaper.

Christina Malcolm and

SophieKiddey are developing

an onlinemagazine, Aeipath,

suitable for findingupcoming

New Zealand local musicians.

‘‘As ahuge supporter of New

Zealandmusic, Iconstantly

struggle with finding new

artists as all the local tunes

are so washedout by

internationalcelebrities,’’

says Sophie who has grownup

playing her own music.

The magazine willfeaturea

new artisteach week, so that

finding new local musicis

simpler thanever.

Sophie’s inspiration behind

the magazine is her personal

passion for New Zealand

music.

“I havesomany talented

friends that I’vemet through

being involved with the local

music scene, and they struggle

to get anyone to hear their art.

Aeipath is designed to fix

that.”

Swimming is proving to be just

the tonic for Christine Patterson.

Christine, who has been

battling depression for over a

decade, has taken the plunge,

and is back in the pool, which is

proving to be agreat place to find

solace.

Recently she swam 100 lengths

of Rangiora’s Dudley Park pool.

Her efforts were not just for

her own wellbeing however, but

to help raise funds for a

Salvation Army project, Embrace

Fiji,aretreat for women.

‘‘For me personally, through

helping these ladies in Fiji, I

have 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 pain

in her feet ­Plantar fasciitis.

With the pain being so horrific,

feet bandaged, unable to swim,

unable to walk, unable to

continue her lifeguard work, and

unable to be aswim instructor, or

work at an elderly persons home,

Christine became isolated.

The February 2011

Christchurch earthquake also

took its toll.

‘‘With the sale of our house,

and unable to begin our new

build, it must have been all too

much and depression set in.

Once the bandages were off,

she couldn’t bring herself to get

back into the pool.

But hearing about Embrace

Fiji,Christine made it her goal to

retreat, by swimming 100,

sponsored 25 metre lengths of the

Dudley Park pool.

Once back in the water,

Christine found she was

‘‘surprisingly happy’’. Each

Tuesday for three weeks she

swam, culminating in tackling

the 100 lengths. Her efforts are

helping 20 women attend the

retreat.

Embrace Fiji is the Salvation

Army New Zealand, Fiji, Tonga

would like to say ahuge thank

you to folk in Rangiora, and

Support is available for those who are

Sharon Ward, whoisraising two

‘‘Ifind it so amazing.It’s the onlygroup

‘‘Grandparentshavetheirmokointheir

Because it is generally considered a

grandparents are limited in what support

they are eligible for, Marie says.

‘‘When it comestofinancial support, it

depends on what court ordersare in place.

Work needed to reduce risks

By DAVID HILL

Anew study hopes to reduce the risk of

falls.

AUniversity of Otago study involving

North Canterbury residents hopes to

better understand ‘‘street conditions’’

and their ‘‘relationship with falling

outdoors’’.

Senior lecturer Dr Angela Curl says

falling over and the fear of falling can

raise anxiety about walking outside,

limiting out of home activities.

‘‘We know the condition of footpaths

and urban environments impact how

comfortable people feel walking, how

much they walk and [leads to] afear of

falling.’’

She says 44 people participated in a

study across 12 workshops, with four

workshops held in Kaiapoi and

Rangiora.

Participants ranged in age from 32 to 92

years, with the average age being 69.

‘‘We did recruit through Age Concern

and mainly targeted older adults, but we

didn’t restrict who could attend. There

was quite arange of people in terms of

mobility issues,’’ Dr Curl says.

‘‘Most people were very active and,

despite concern about falling and often

feeling unsafe, they did get out and walk

alot.

‘‘For some people this means driving to

areserve, or getting out of town, but not

everybody can do this so we need to

ensure neighbourhood streets are safe

from risk of falls.’’

Once people have afall it can reduce

self­confidence, Dr Curl says.

‘‘Sometimes people who had been very

committed walkers, start walking less

and might go out in the car even just

down to the local shops.

‘‘In one case someone had stopped

taking neighbours’ dogs and children for

walks, showing the impact on connection

Stronger ...

Improving your strength and balance will help reduce the risk of afall.

and community.’’

She says 40 percent of participants had

fallen in the last 12 months, with 70% of

those having fallen more than once,

while the other 60% ‘‘expressed ahigh

level of concern about falling’’.

The research team has used data from

St John Ambulance as well as

participants to identify where falls have

occurred.

An audit tool has been developed, with

2500 locations audited.

Almost all of the locations had at least

one obstruction, such as poles, signs,

overhanging vegetation, manholes or

grates and litter bins. Participants also

commented on bus stops, uneven ground,

rough surfaces, chairs and tables outside,

changing levels across driveways and

cars parked on the footpath.

Dr Curl says there is more data

analysis to be completed and the

research team will continue to

disseminate data at workshops.

‘‘There are things individuals can do

such as the ‘steady as you go’ falls

prevention classes that work on balance

and stability, but there is aneed for more

consideration of the needs of the ageing

population in the design of our towns and

cities.’’

She encourages people to report any

potential hazards by using

SnapSendSolve.

AgriKids ready for action

By DAVID HILL

North Loburn School’s Karetu

Kids don’t have to look far for

inspiration ahead of tomorrow’s

(Friday, July 2) national AgriKids

final in Christchurch.

The school has had along

tradition in the annual AgriKids

competition’s 10 year history,

having competed in several

AgriKids finals including the

Gumboot Gang being national

runners­up at Feilding in 2017.

This year’s Karetu Kids team

comprises Regan Herlihy (12),

John Lundy (12) and Cate Ambury

(13), who are all competing for the

first time.

Regan’s older brother and

sister have competed in past

AgriKids competitions, while

John’s dad is apast Young

Farmers Club member, so there is

no shortage of advise for the team.

All three are rural kids, with

John hailing from asheep and

deer farm, Cate comes from a

lifestyle block with goats, while

Regan lives on afarm and his dad

is ashearer.

‘‘I think we are pretty well

covered because we have arange

of knowledge between us,’’ Cate

says.

The team has had afew morning

and after school sessions to help

them prepare and has been

making good use of the ‘‘hints’’

provided to the finalists last week

of the things they may be tested

on, John says.

‘‘We’ve thought about what the

hints might be telling us,’’ Cate

says.

‘‘And we’ve learnt about Young

Karetu Kids ... North Loburn School’s team of Regan Herlihy (12, left),

John Lundy (12) and Cate Ambury (13) is excited about competing in the

national AgriKids final tomorrow.

Farmers and where they came

from,’’ Ryan adds.

In the last few days before the

final the team was due to have a

session on ATVs in preparation

for the Honda module and

planned to brush up on their

general knowledge.

Being in the national final

means two days off school, with

teams participating in an opening

ceremony in Christchurch this

afternoon.

The AgriKids modules will be

held at New Zealand Young

Farmers’ headquarters at

Innovation Park in Templeton

tomorrow between 7.30am and

3.30pm, alongside the FMG Young

Farmer of the Year and Junior

Young Farmer practical

competitions.

Teams will compete in various

modules, arace and awritten test.

Karetu Kids will be lining up

against two teams from Waikari

School and 18 other teams from

around the country.

The AgriKids winners will be

announced at afunction in the

Christchurch Town Hall

tomorrow evening.

West Eyreton community displays its wheels

By DAVID HILL

The West Eyreton community

brought their wheels to school

last week to ‘‘ignite’’ student

passion for learning.

Around 20 different types of

vehicles rolled into West

Eyreton School on Wednesday,

June 23, as part of an Ignite

learning programme, where

senior pupils have been

learning about different forms of

transport.

Teacher Sarah Wardle said

she was pleased with the

community support, which saw a

range of agricultural, work,

recreational and vintage

vehicles on display.

‘‘We’ve got different types of

transport and machinery from

around the district. We’ve got

farming and contracting

machinery, vintage cars, racing

‘‘People have been very keen

The slowest form of transport

was aShetland pony, Rowan

owner Izzy de Roo (12).

enjoyed driving her Shetland pony,

Rowan (21), around school.

‘‘He loves the attention,’’ she

said.

Shetland ponies like Rowan

were once used in coalmining

more than acentury ago.

A1928 Oakland car attracted

plenty of attention, with owner

Graeme Read, of West Eyreton,

only too happy to support his

grandchildren, who attend the

school.

‘‘Some of the children are

pretty amazed that this car is

older than they’re

grandparents.’’

Strong buyer interest in Kaikoura bulls

By DAVID HILL

Acommercial Angus bull

produced abit of surprise at a

Kaikoura bull sale last week.

Angus bull Woodbank 9110

sold for $16,000, outstripping the

prices paid for stud Angus bulls

at the combined Matariki

Hereford /Woodbank Angus onfarm

bull sale held in the

Clarence Valley, north of

Kaikoura, on June 22.

‘‘It’s what happens when

commercial guys see something

they like,’’ Woodbank Angus coowner

Ben Murray said.

‘‘People are prepared to pay

for quality genetics and the

results they’re getting are pretty

good.’’

Angus bulls were primarily

bred as maternal sires, to

produce cows to build up an

Angus herd.

‘‘You’re breeding for the

females you keep in your herd.

Everyone wants good females to

keep in their herd for aperiod of

time.’’

Three Angus stud bulls sold

for $15,000, while 54 of the 58

Angus bulls offered for sale were

sold for an average of $9204,

which was afitting way to mark

the stud’s 85th anniversary.

‘‘We were very happy with how

it all went, we sold 54 bulls

which was absolutely brilliant,’’

Mr Murray said.

‘‘We were very well supported

from Marlborough and North

Canterbury. It’s always good to

keep them (the bulls) in the

district and to see the buyers

keep coming back.’’

Other buyers travelled from as

far afield as Gisborne and

Wairoa in the North Island and

from Southland and South Otago

in the south, he said.

The Woodbank Angus stud was

founded in 1936 by Mr Murray’s

grandfather, while the

Woodbank farm was established

by his great­grandfather in 1900.

The farm was later subdivided

after World War 2, with

Mr Murray’s great­uncle

establishing the Matariki

Hereford stud.

‘‘We’ve got an awesome

relationship with Matariki and it

suits our clients well, as alot of

guys like to chop and change

between the breeds, so it works

for both of us,’’ he said.

Today Mr Murray runs the 450

cow Angus stud with his father

Johnny, while his son Tom is the

latest generation on the farm.

The Matariki Hereford stud

had asuccessful day selling 58 of

the 59 Hereford bulls offered for

sale for an average price of

$8448, with the day’s top price

being $20,000 paid for Matariki

Memphis in lot 46 by Koanui

Polled Herefords of Havelock

North. Two Hereford stud bulls

also sold for $18,000.

Resilience message

for changing world

By DAVID HILL

Looking to the future and

resilience were the focus

of afarmers’ conference

held in Christchurch last

week.

Around100 farmers

attended Beef +Lamb

New Zealand’s annual

FarmSmart conference at

Addington Raceway,

where Canterbury­based

board directors Nicky

Hyslopand Kate Acland

discussed the

organisation’s

referendum and northern

South Island farmers’

council chairperson

FraserAverykicked

thingsoff by talking about

resilience.

‘‘The key message is we

are in areferendum year,

so we really encourage

farmers to get out and

vote. It’s justsoimportant

that we have their

mandate,’’ Mrs Hyslop

said.

Areferendum is held

every six yearstogive

farmers achancetohave

their say on the futureof

the levy­funded

organisation, with voting

closing on July9.

Achanging world, the

environment, trade,

recruitingyoungpeople,

research and

development,genetics

and influencing

governmentpolicy were

prioritiesfor BLNZ going

forward, Mrs Hyslop said.

‘‘As farmers we

understandthe bow wave

of issues thatare coming

forward and the change

ahead of us, so that’sone

of our goals is to make

sure in terms of policy that

we influence wherever we

can sensible outcomes.

We knowthat’s really

frustratingfarmers at the

moment.

‘‘It’snot the direction of

travel, we certainly

support good water

quality, lookingafter our

soils,biodiversity, all of

those really important

thingsand mitigating

climate change,we

of thatsolution, but we

want to see sensible policy

and we’re not always

seeingthat.’’

The recent flood event

on the back of the long

running drought had abig

impactonfarmers in the

regionand new board

memberMrs Acland’s

property was in the midst

of the flooding.

‘‘We’ve had close to half

our annualrainfall in one

weekend, but it’s

something we faceas

farmers and one of the

themestoday is about

resilience and dealing

with these events and

remaining strongand

resilient in the face of it,’’

Mrs Aclandsaid.

In his opening address,

Mr Averynoted the

Aclands had received

more rain in five days than

his farm receivedin18

months, whichhighlights

the need for resilience.

Resilience beganwith

‘‘understanding ourselves

­how we manage

ourselves and the people

aroundus’’,hesaid.

‘‘Life happens. How we

deal with it is what define

us.

‘‘Some people tellme

that rightnow is the most

challenging time they’ve

ever seeninfarming,but

for me I’ve never seen

more opportunities. So it’s

all about mindset.’’

Mr Avery also noted the

growing

acknowledgement of the

roles women have always

played in the rural sector,

which was echoed by

Canterbury’s two BLNZ

board directors.

‘‘I think throughoutthe

countryyou’ll find

farmingisapartnership,

so it’s not unusual to have

women really strongly

involved,’’ Mrs Acland

said.

‘‘And Ithinkit’s just that

now we are seeing so

much more

acknowledgement and

confidencefrom women to

come forward. But they’ve

always been an important

part of farming

partnerships,’’ Mrs Hyslop

added.

Kaiapoi remains top of the table

RUGBY

BY LINDSAY KERR,

PETER WILLIAMS, AND

DAYLE SUTHERLAND

Kaiapoi and Saracens have

consolidated their positions at

the topofthe Luisetti Seeds

NorthCanterbury premier

rugbycompetition, but the

battle for the remaining semi

finalplaces intensified last

Saturday, after the completion

of round four.

Glenmark­Cheviot returned

to the winners circleafter

accounting for Hurunui, and

Ashley bounced back from a

heavydefeat by Saracens to

comfortablyhead off Woodend.

Points after four rounds:

Kaiapoi 19, Saracens 17,

Ashley 11, Hurunui 10, Oxford

9, Glenmark­Cheviot 9, Ohoka

5, Woodend 1.

Kaiapoi too strong

Kaiapoi’s strength across the

park wasevident underlining

why its the top­ranked teamin

the Luisetti SeedsNorth

Canterbury rugbycompetition.

In an entertaining, freeflowing

match Kaiapoi

comfortablybeat Oxford 39­22.

Its strong­running backs

thrived on aconstant streamof

possession provided by the

hard­working and mobile

forward pack.

Its consistent scrum,a

feature all season, was amajor

strength,with the Oxfordpack

pushed back on afew

occasions, sometimesupto10

metres. Kaiapoi also gained

the ascendancy at lineout time.

Lock Nacanieli Namata,

playing in his 100th matchfor

Kaiapoi,revelledinhis work

helping gainlineout

possession and frequently

popping up in generalplay

with the ball in hand. Halfback,Codey

Grimes, skilfully

distributed aplethora of

quality ball to his backs.

LoganBell, seemed to make

adent in the line every time he

touched the ball, and Reuben

Tiweka and Jovilisi Toleqa

were aconstant threat.

If there was achink in

Kaiapoi’s armour,itwas its

goal­kicking. the usually

reliable Taine Jacobs­Lawson

had already sprayed three

penalty chances in the first 12

minutes and even achange of

kicker brought littlejoy. Only

two of their seventries were

converted.

But Oxford was resilient.As

in recent weeks, theytackled

their hearts out and whenever

Kaiapoi threatened to openup

asizeable margin, Oxford

found away to clawback the

margin.Itgrabbed the few

chancesitwas presented with.

Half­back Matt Roberts and

hooker DannyBrooker were

bothrewarded for their

diligence with opportunistic

tries. Jesse Houston was a

standout in awell­beatenpack.

against avaliant Ohokaside.It

wasfittingfor Saracens to win

on club day, and alsocelebrate

Ohoka however,was

determined to spoil the party

and took advantage of

possession and territorytogo

into the half 15­10ahead.

Ohoka’s ZanePaterson and

Tobias Pulleygave the visitors

ball running options, leaving

the visitors confident heading

into the break. The old adage of

securingfirstpointsafter half

time couldn’t have been more

important. The home side

claimedthe advantage,scoring

wide to lockthe scoresat15­all.

Theturning pointfor the

home side came late in the

game. With Ohoka up 18­15,

Saracens second intercept try

handed themomentum over.

Two consecutive tries against a

tiring Ohokadefence, handing

Mixed results for Rangiora hockey teams

HOCKEY

Rangiora Hockey Club's division 1men's

team took awhile to warm up in its home

game against University of Canterbury

Spartans, conceding agoal in the first

couple of minutes, then anotherbefore

the end of the firsthalf.

But it shored up its defence after halftime

and worked its way back into the

game, with several promising forays into

the UC circle.

Lachlan Miller scored awell crafted

individual goal and then John Single

netted one late in the game to even the

scoreline.

Rangiora division 1women also earned

some much neededpoints with a1­all

draw against University of Canterbury

Huns.

In the Sunday Super League Men's

Championships the Rangiora Colts

comfortably accounted for University of

Canterbury Barbarians, but an understrength

Oddfellows team couldn't match

Avon.

In the women's championship

Rangiora Piwakawaka lost 4­nil to

Waikirikiri, which wasactually a

considerable improvement on the 8­0

scoreline the last time these two teams

met.

In the mid­weekcompetition all

Rangiora teamshad good wins. Rangiora

Hurunui Hares downedMalvern 5­1 in

the women's division 1grade, turning

aroundaloss to this team in round 1.

Rangiora Allsorts also turned arounda

round 1loss to Avon with adominant

performance over the blue and golds in

the division 2men's clash. The final

scoreline was 5­3, but it could have been

even more had Jon Green not had two

goals disallowed.

The mid­week Amen's team kept up its

In the juniorcompetition unbeaten

Rangiora Rabbits(Kwik Sticks girls’

grade) were put underpressure in the

top of the table clash with the also

unbeaten HSOB/Burnside Pixies. The

Rabbits got two goalsupinthe first half

only to seePixies hit back quickly to even

the score.

The Rabbits again took atwo goal lead

which Pixies cancelled with two more

goals of its own. In the end it tooka

couple of individual goals to Catherine

McKellow late in the game to separate

the teamsand keep the Rabbits’
