Howl of aProtest abeginning

By ROBYN BRISTOW AND

SHELLEY TOPP

The convoys of tractors, utes, and trucks,

along with hundreds of dogs that rolled

in to North Canterbury town’s last

Friday in support of AHowl of aProtest,

is just the beginning of acampaign to

drive change, says an organiser.

Hurunui’s Jamie McFadden says if the

Government does not acknowledge by

August 16, that the regulatory system

down on the farm is unsustainable and

unworkable, then further action will

follow.

‘‘We need change. We have reached

the point where the regulatory system is

unsustainable,’’ says Mr McFadden, the

chair of the Rural Advocacy Network

which has aligned itself with the

Groundswell movement, which has its

roots in Southland.

‘‘The Freshwater legislation is

unworkable, Significant Natural Areas

(SNAs) regulations are unworkable, and

the Government will never be able to

force them on the people of Hurunui

again. Neither the council (Hurunui

District Council), or the community will

tolerate that,’’ says Mr McFadden.

‘‘These regulations all fall under the

Resource Management Act (RMA), the

whole of which needs reviewed,’’ he

says.

The Government has indicated a

review of the RMA, and it needs to

address farmers concerns about the

unrealistic regulations being imposed

on them.

People on the ground, putting in the

hard yards and who had solutions,

needed to be consulted to find workable

ways of achieving the outcomes the

Government, and farmers, wanted to

achieve.

In the meantime the cost of trying to

meet regulations was getting ‘‘all out of

whack’’ financially, and emotionally,

and the turn out last Friday showed the

rural community was fed up, said Mr

McFadden.

From Page 1

Mr McFadden says the Governmentneeds

to go back to the drawingboard over the

RMA, and find out ‘‘whatisworking on the

ground, and what isn’t’’.

Meanwhile he is keen to establish a

Groundswell movementinCanterbury

with co­ordinatorscovering thekey

geographical areas.

Convoys of tractors rolled into Kaikoura,

Cheviot, Culverden,Amberley and

Rangiora last Friday, alongwith utes,

vans,trucks, contracting equipment and

dogs,gridlocking towns duetothe sheer

volume of vehicles.They stoodshoulderto­shoulder

with their urban cousins,

whiletrafficheld up by the convoys tooted,

drivers wavedand people lining the

streets yelledsupport. Even preschoolers

and retired folkstood in support.

In Rangioraabout 350 tractors and utes

rolled through the central business district

(CBD)causingtraffic jams in HighStand

Ashley St and attractinggroupsof

onlookers four and five deep in places.

About1000 protesters, many with their

farm dogs,headed to the front lawn

outside the Waimakariri District Council

service centre for speeches by farmer,

Dave Winter, of Clarkville,and

Waimakariri District Deputy Mayor

Neville Atkinson.

An organiser of Rangiora’s protest, Craig

McAllister,ofCust, said the size of the

protest and the support the organisers had

received wasoverwhelming.

‘‘We didn’t know whattoexpect, but it

showsthe concern everyone has. We have

made alot of changes but we keepgetting

bombarded with more,’’hesaid.

‘‘A littlerecognition for what we have

done would go along way.’’

Mr Winter, when asked to MC Rangiora's

Howl of aProtestsaid he was surehewas

‘‘thesacrificial lamb’’ ratherthan ‘‘the

chosen one’',but was happy to speak at the

protest.

‘‘It is our futureweare trying to secure,’’

he said.

From theback of aute Mr Winter

queried why everyone,young and old, was

there. ‘‘Becausewehave all had agutsful,’’

he said.

He ended his speech withastatement

from Groundswell NZ outlining the

concernsabout ‘‘the unworkable

environmental policies’’ the protest was

focused on and ‘‘the workable solutions’’

Groundswell NZ was keen to promote.

The protest hadbeen organised in ‘‘a

spirit of co­operation, non­confrontation

and no intentional disruption,’’ he said.

‘‘We encourage people attending the

Howl to support localbusinessesand

engage with peopleinapositive way.’’

Mr Atkinsontold the protestershehad

not seensomany farmers in town on a

Friday before and the council supported

what theywere doing.

‘‘This is your day.Weare with you and

we willhelp you where we can,’’ he said.

protesters met at the Rangiora A&P

Showgrounds where retired veterinarian

Dave Martin, of Ashley, andMatt Kerr, a

lifestyle blockowner and helicopter pilot

of Swannanoa, saidthey joined the protest

becausethey were ‘‘brassedoff’’with all

the regulations which were‘`punitive and

impractical’’.

They wanted to see more consultation.

‘‘Farmers need morevoice and the

Government needstolisten.’’

In Amberley hundredsoftractors, utes,

along withtrucks, contracting equipment,

and people and theirdogs turnedout.

Jessie Moffatt, aged 15, astudent whose

parentsfarm at Okuku, spoke,reminding

the huge crowd thatfood did not come

from thebackroom of the supermarket.

‘‘It starts in the paddocks.Itstarts on the

farm withthe farmers producing aproduct

they can be proud of.No­one in the world

cares morefor theirproperty, produce,

animalsand environmentthan farmers,’’

she said.

‘‘The governmentgoes on about how we

need to start planting moretrees, yet want

us to fence off our waterways with wooden

posts. See the issuethere?’’

The costofputting up fences was going

to be hundredsand thousands, money

farmerswould have to find from ‘‘our own

hard­earnedmoney less all the taxes’’.

‘‘By putting up thesefencesthe

governmentthinks that they are savingthe

environment, but really it is goingtocause

awhole load of even worse issuessuch as

flooding, pest infestation,deforestation,’’

Jessie said.

Farming was alifestyle,requiring long

hours. It was the country’s largest industry

and New Zealandwas built on agriculture.

‘‘I am appalled to witnessthis

governmentslam farmers for climate

change issues withunrealistic taxes and

unworkable working and environmental

regulations.

‘‘I,along withGroundswell NZ, and all

farmers,have the right to stand up for our

way of life to stopthe government’s

unrealisticideals.’’

‘‘We worksodamn hard and what do we

get in return? Yet another tax and yet

more unrealistic laws,’’ Jessie said.

Waimakariri MP Matt Doocey, who

joined the Rangioraprotest, says the

Government’s environmental regulations

were the latest kick in the teeth for the

ruralsector.

‘‘I was proud to standwith our local

farmers today —they are an integral part

of our community’’ he said.

‘‘Itwas greattosee so many residents

out in supportofthem too. It is clear this

is an important issue and peopleacross

the board are justifiablyangry about.”

Mr Doocey, the National Party’s first

mental health spokesperson, says the

farming community had beenhit time and

again, and worked hard to adjust to

constantly changing rulesand regulations.

The impacts on theirwellbeing fromthe

uncertainty and stress was documented,

and more change wouldinevitably create

even more anxiety.

Opportunity knocks in Kaikoura

By DAVID HILL

The Kaikoura Community Op Shop

Trust is doing what it does best —raising

funds for its community.

The op shop volunteers have set agoal

of raising nearly $120,000 to support

emergency services in Kaikoura as part

of its ‘‘volunteers for volunteers’’

project.

Earlier this month the volunteers

came together for their annual midwinter

afternoon tea to present the

Kaikoura Search and Rescue team with

aLeica Calonox Sight Thermal Night

Vision Camera worth $7100, in the first

part of its latest fundraising target.

‘‘As one of our volunteers told the

Search and Rescue guys, ‘that’s nothing,

it’s only aweek and ahalf of sales in our

shop’,’’ op shop co­ordinator Lynda

Scott says.

The op shop trust is well on the way to

raising the rest of the nearly $120,000

target, to buy a$47,500 monitor /

defibrillator for the Canterbury West

Coast Air Rescue Trust’s Kaikoura

service and $65,000 for anew van for the

Kaikoura Volunteer Fire Brigade.

‘‘We are so proud that we can help

these amazing volunteer organisations

that are on call 24/7 and provide such a

wonderful service to the Kaikoura

community,’’ Lynda says.

‘‘We believe our volunteer’s efforts

will reflect the great respect we have for

other volunteer organisations.

‘‘The trust expects these goals will be

achieved by the end of this year.’’

The op shop was first opened in 2014

to help the community to raise funds for

the Kaikoura Hospital, raising $140,000.

It was so successful, the trust decided

to keep going to raise funds for other

causes.

Since then $100,000 has been raised

for Kaikoura St John, $45,000 for the

hospital’s deck garden, $100,000 for the

Kaikoura Community Pool and $300,000

for the Mayfair Theatre (across two

projects).

Afurther $25,000 was given to the

Kaikoura High School for its junior

playground and the trust has also raised

funds for the roof replacement and fit

out of the op shop, which is in the old

Cuddon Building on Beach Road, and

owned by the Kaikoura District Council.

Lynda says the op shop is run entirely

by volunteers, with 53 volunteers in all,

and is open Monday to Friday 10am to

4pm and Saturdays from 10.30am to 2pm.

‘‘It’s totally voluntary and our

overheads are low, so all the funds go

back into the community.’’

Roading projects on track despite flood

By DAVIDHILL

The recentflood event has caused some

delays to roading projects aroundthe

Waimakariri district, but work is

continuing apace, council staff say.

Several projects in Southbrook,

Woodend and Kaiapoiare either

completed, nearing completion or getting

underway.

In Southbrook, upgrade work on Flaxton

Road and the installation of the

roundabout are now complete, but

contractorsare awaiting warmerweather

before laying the final asphalt surface,

whichislikely to be in the spring.

Staffare working on the design of traffic

lights and will begin engaging with

affected residents soononproposalsfor

safety improvements on SouthbrookRoad

in the vicinityofSouthbrook and Rangiora

New Life schools.

The council has money budgeted in the

2021/31 Long TermPlan for designwork in

the 2021/22financial yearand for

constructionwork next year, which is

subjecttoWaka Kotahi New Zealand

TransportAgency (NZTA) funding

approval.

East and west Rangiora bypasseswere

proposed in the LTP and are still in the

pipeline,withsomeplanningunder way.

The easternlink route is being protected

by applying for adesignation on the

underlying land as partofthe proposed

District Plan, which will be consulted on

later in the year.

The council is also looking into

protecting acorridorfor anorth­western

link between RiverRoad and Lehmans

Road.

Staff anticipatethat bothofthese

projects will be constructed overthe next

10 to 15 years.

In Woodend, the Rangiora /Woodend

cycle way extension was completedon

July 5and opened for public use.

In Kaiapoi,the commutercycleway was

due to have be completed at the end of

June, but has beendelayed with work

close to completion.

It is expected to be open to the public by

the end of July.

The proposed Kaiapoi recreational

cycleway willbeconsidered as part of the

wider CycleNetwork Plan for the district,

withcouncil staff due to engage with the

public laterinthe year.

Construction work on Kaiapoi’s‘‘shovel

ready’’ projectgot under way lastmonth in

Sneyd Street, withworkdue to begin on

Beach Road next week.

Extensive potholing, minor works and

property purchases as partofthis project

havebeen completed.

Alarge pipe supply contracthas been

confirmed, with other tendersbeing

considered for workinthe vicinity of Otaki

Street,Akaroa Street, Porter Placeand

Chapman Place.

The ‘‘shovel ready’’ project is expected

to be completed by the end of next year.

The May 31 floodevent caused

considerable damage to roads around the

working out ‘‘a coarseestimate’’ of costs

which willbediscussedwith NZTA and

the council.

Oxford Bird Rescue now acharitable trust

In care ... One of the raptors being cared for by the owners of the Oxford Bird Rescue

Charitable Trust, Scott and Tracey Bowman.

PHOTO:SUPPLIED

By SHELLEY TOPP

OxfordBird Rescue has become a

charitable trust and its new statusis

expected to help with running costs.

All donations to the centre willnow

be tax deductible with donors getting33

percent of their donation back.

The charitable trust status also

enables the centretoaccessgrantsthat

were previously unavailable to them.

Beforethe trustwas established

OxfordBird Rescue’s owners, Scott and

TraceyBowman, mainly fundedthe

shelter with theirown money.

Afew Givealittle campaignsfor

specific requirements,fundsfrom the

sale of the centre’s annual bird

calendar and donations had also

helped.

Scott said they had tried to convert

the centre to acharitable trust several

times,but withoutthe help of alawyer

it had proved too difficult.

However that changedafter lawyer

StevenMoe, of Christchurch’s Parry

Field Lawyers, was shown the Oxford

Bird Rescue's Facebook pagebyhis

owl­loving daughter.

‘‘He reached out to us and offered his

and the firm'sservices to create our

charitable trust pro bono,’’ Scott said.

‘‘The cost of establishingacharitable

trust can be anywhere from $3000to

$5000 so thiswas an extremely generous

offer and without them it would have

taken along time to savethat money.’’

The centreisrun under aspecific

Department of Conservation

rehabilitation permit that allows Scott

and Tracey to care for native and

endemic wildlife for up to three

months.

‘‘The end goal is to always to release

these birds back into the wild. Where

possible we try to put them backinto

their home territory and try to get the

rescuers to do the release so theycan

see the resultoftheir kindnessand

efforts.’’

The centreisnow caringfor 11

harrier hawks, one falcon,six little owls

and one morepork.

‘‘Winter always sees an influx of

harrier hawkswith theirnatural

hunting prey like hares and rabbits

scarceand hardertocatch,’’ Scott said.

The harrier hawksrely alot moreon

carrion (decaying fleshofanimals) on

highways during winter whichputs

them directly in harm’sway.

‘‘Manyharriers are killedorseverely

injured by vehiclestrike,’’Scott said.

‘‘We are always keen to see people

move carrionoff the road whenever it is

safe to do so as thisgives hawksasafe

meal out of harm's way.’’

Scottand Tracey have alsonoticed

more hawks sufferingfrom lead

poisoning after eating shot carrion.

The lead from the shotgun pellets or

bullets ends up being ingested by the

hawksand then contaminates their

bloodcausing clenched talons, seizures

and eventually death.

‘‘Birds come to us from members of

the public, vet clinics, other bird

rescues and we also do the

rehabilitation for both the Christchurch

and Dunedin wildlife hospitals,’’ Scott

said.

‘‘Vetlife New Zealandoperate a

wildlife fund for us without which what

we do would be almost impossible.

Vetlife Oxford have anumber of avian

experienced vets and do the bulk of our

vet work but we have built up

relationships with anumber of othervet

clinics thattake in birds and do

assessments to determine what is wrong

and whether the injuries are fixable.’’

Thank youtoeveryone who tuned in

unashamedly emotionalwhen Ispoke

There’s no reason why we can’t have

AsNational’sfirstMentalHealth

me hope we canstartthe changethat’s

Waimakariri residentshavethrough

over thepast20years in upgrading our

waterinfrastructure.

It’snosurprise, then, that our

communitiesare concerned about the

future of the management ofthose

assetsunder thegovernment’swater

managementreforms.

While somecouncilscould welcome

amalgamation of water management

under acentralisedentity, others,like

Waimakariri, mightsee fewerbenefits

in footing thebill forpoorer­performing

councils.

While there isacase forchange in

howwemanageour water across the

country, Ibelievethe risk is too high

under thisproposed model thatthe

voice of districts like Waimakariri will

be lost.Our council needs to opposethis

modelpublicly andunequivocally by

optingout.

Waimakariri

Focus from Dan Gordon, Mayor

Assets community owned

Last week Iattended the Local

Government New Zealand Conference in

Blenheimwith Councillors Philip

Redmond and Paul Williams and CEO Jim

Harland.

The Government’s Three Waters

Reformsdominated the conference —

especially its announcement of a$2.5

billion funding package. The share for

Waimakariri was $22m conditional on

opting into the reform programme. This

announcement was disappointing.

Our water­related assets are owned by

the community and have avalue of $602

million. Over the last 20 years we’ve

invested over $100minwater

infrastructure. So it’s not aparticularly

equitableoffer.

Also disappointing was the lack of a

detailed response to the questions the

sector, on the claimed efficiencies by the

Government on 3Waters Reform, made.

Despite the added incentiveof$22m we

still do not believe the Government has put

astrongcase for reform for our

community. It is clear from conferencewe

are not on our own.

Our position remains, basedonthe

limited information presentedsofar, we

do not join the Government’s reform

programme at this point. We are not

convincedthere are benefits for the

Waimakariri community and we need to

consult with you before reachingaformal

decision.

The Government now wants to know our

council’sposition by the end of September.

Previously we had been told December.

We now need to presentthe best

information we can obtain in the coming

months.

We will be in touch in the coming weeks

and holding community meetings for you

to find out more information and get back

to us with your thoughts. It is important for

the councillors and myself to hear from

you (after all the 3Waters assets belong to

you!) before we makeaformal decision

and advise the Government of our

decision.

While in Blenheimfor the conference,I

attended the Howl of aProtest by

Groundswelland stood side­by­side with

otherCanterbury Mayors in supportofour

farmers and rural community.

Ihear there were large crowds in

Rangiora and Kaiapoi and our council was

well representedbyDeputy Mayor Neville

Atkinson and other councillors who

welcomedall who attended and passed on

the support of the council.

Farmers are the backboneofour

economy. Their message to the

governmentistoslow the reform

programme down –from the National

PolicyStatement on Freshwater,RMA

Reform, SNA’s, to Ute Tax and 3Waters

Reform.

We back this message and made our

viewsclear to Government Ministers.

Hopefullyitgets through. Fundamentally I

don’tthink any one is opposed to

discussing new ideas and ways of doing

things. Rushed reformwithout adequate

time to consider the consequencesand

without listeningtothose affected, is in no

one’sinterest.

The resource consent application for

Taggarts Earthmovingtoconstruct a

quarry at the Rangiora Racecourse has

been declined. The decision from

commissioners is in line with the

recommendation from the external

planning officerfor both ECanand the

Waimakariri District Council who also

recommended the consent be declined.

The community clearly expressed their

thoughts and I’m sure are breathing asigh

of relief. Ultimately,whetherTaggarts

appeal the decision is amatter for them

and Rangiora Racecoursebut Iwould

strongly urge both partiestocarefully

consider the community opinion that has

been clearly expressed in opposition.

Dear Editor,

On Friday, July 16, my heart sang as I

listened in to radio talk­back hearing

hundreds of tractors, utes, tradies, hunters

and dogs howling their protest throughout

cities and towns of New Zealand against

the tyranny and avalanche of unmandated

law changes this government is forcing

upon us all.

Idon’t know any farmers; have been on a

farm only afew times in my whole life, and

though acity dweller, Ihold their heart

beat close to me.

Farmers are my brother and sister and I’m

Fund enables new tourist link

Kaikoura is to receive nearly $2 million

for the government’s Tourism

Infrastructure Fund.

The Kaikoura District Council has

welcomed the announcement from

Tourism Minister Stuart Nash that it

will receive $1.9 million to develop a

link pathway from the Kaikoura iSite

along the Esplanade and Fyffe Quay to

the seal colony at Point Kean.

‘‘A pathway connecting key points of

interest in Kaikoura has been

considered by the community over a

number of years,’’ chief executive Will

Doughty says.

‘‘Now, with this level of financial

support from central government we

can make this happen.’’

The link pathway will connect

drawcards such as the Kaikoura

Museum, iSite, Memorial Gardens,

Dolphin Encounter, Mayfair Theatre,

the Sudima Hotel and proposed

redevelopment of the old pool site at

Gooches Beach.

The pathway will continue past

Wakatu Quay, the historic Fyffe House,

Jimmy Armers Beach and the seal

colony at Point Kean.

It will also create aconnection to

West End from the many

accommodation providers, which are

also situated along the proposed

pathway.

It is hoped the link pathway will

enhance the Kaikoura foreshore for our

community and visitors.

The pathway will make it safer to

access Point Kean and lessen short car

trips in the district, reducing the

community’s climate change impact.

‘‘The link pathway will benefit our

local community and be another

Linking together ... Anew track will link the Kaikoura town centre to the seal colony

at Point Kean.

drawcard for Kaikoura,’’ Mayor Craig

Mackle says.

‘‘At the moment people drive between

attractions along the Esplanade, but

this pathway will encourage more

people to get out of their cars and spend

more time here.

‘‘Once we get people out of their cars,

they can really enjoy what Kaikoura has

to offer.’’

The link pathway funding will also

upgrade the existing under­utilised

walking track from the Esplanade up to

the Kaikoura Lookout, which has a

360­degree panoramic view of both

sides of the Kaikoura Peninsula.

‘‘We are very grateful to Minister

Nash for following through on his

commitments made back in March,

supporting Kaikoura as one of the five

districts most impacted by Covid­19

border closures,’’ Mr Mackle says.

‘‘I’d like to thank the team at the

council for developing such astrong

application, we now have an amazing

opportunity here to do something very

special for the community and town.’’

The council will work closely with Te

Runanga oKaikoura and key

community groups over the coming

months to develop the design.

The aim will be to blend in with the

natural landscape, treading lightly

while showcasing the incredible

environment. The project will be

delivered over atwo year period.

‘‘Local events are agreat

way to bring everyone

be great to see this

celebration well supported by

our community.’’

The Kaikoura Museum and

Fyffe House are joining the

festivities with night tours,

the Mayfair Theatre is hosting

aWilly Wonka Tea Party to

coincide with the 50th

There will be prizes and it

promises to be afun event for

competitors and spectators

alike.

The ice­skating rink will be

hosted in the Kaikoura

Memorial Hall if the weather

‘‘The family friendly event

will start relatively small, but

it is hoped to build the

Made NC marks milestone

A‘‘chefs’ tour’’ is the latest

achievements by Made North

Canterbury since it kicked off one year

ago.

The tour took place on Monday (July

19) and saw aselected number of

Christchurch’s food and beverage

industry professionals whisked around

North Canterbury to meet the region’s

producers on their own turf and

showcase their produce.

In the past 12 months, Made North

Canterbury has launched on to the

scene as New Zealand’s only unifying

provenance brand and has established

athriving collective of producers and

supporters representing all things

made, grown, caught and reared in the

region.

Aproject delivered by Enterprise

North Canterbury (ENC), Made North

Canterbury was made possible thanks

to Ministry of Business, Innovation and

Employment funding.

The Made North Canterbury website

was launched in February, bringing

the brand’s compelling stories to the

fore, raising awareness and appeal for

North Canterbury products both

regionally and nationally.

The website directory and

interactive map list Made North

Canterbury members and supporters,

which include producers, restaurants,

cafes and retailers.

The distinctive mark is now visible

on anumber of supermarket shelves

and member products, including the

famous King’s Truffle Butter, produce

from Pihi Farms and goods from Make

it Raw.

Producer collaborations to date

include an exclusive North Canterbury

wine list at Christchurch’s Mona Vale

Restaurant and the inclusion of

Alissa Wilson

Athena olives and olive oil on the

cellar door menu at Black Estate.

Aunique beer dubbed ‘Skip to the

End’ has also been created as afun

collaboration between Derelict

Brewery and Garry River Farm, using

wild Siberian cherries in the specialty

brew.

ENC food and business development

manager Alissa Wilson is thrilled with

brand’s progress to date.

‘‘So far we have very much achieved

what we set out to achieve.

‘‘We have engaged agrowing number

of local producers and supporters and

we hope to continue to grow this

engagement along with the awareness

of the Made North Canterbury brand

and the incredible offerings from our

region.’’

In addition to the ‘‘chefs’ tour’’ plans

are in place for aMade North

Canterbury taste trail, to be launched

in February, where locals and visitors

will have the chance to explore and

taste what this thriving region has to

offer.


ANIMAL HEALTH

The North Canterbury News, July 22, 2021

Spring is in the air ... Early season lambs are expected to begin popping up around the

region soon.

New born lambs easy

targets for dog attacks

The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty

to Animals (SPCA) is urging dog owners,

particularly those living near lifestyle

blocks, to take extra care and keep track

of their pets at all times, as early lambing

season gets under way.

Every year sheep and lambs are

injured or killed by roaming dogs in

attacks that are not only traumatic for

animals and people involved, but are

often completely avoidable through

responsible dog ownership.

With 175,000 lifestyle blocks

nationwide and rural properties

continuing to grow in popularity, SPCA

scientific officer Dr Alison Vaughan says

it’s important for dog owners –

particularly those living in rural areas –

to make sure their dog is secured and

unable to roam.

‘‘This is akey part of responsible pet

ownership ­making sure you know where

your animal is at all times and that you

have them under control, whether that’s

on aleash when out walking or in a

fenced yard or inside your property,’’

says Dr Vaughan.

Those with stock on lifestyle blocks,

including sheep, lambs, goats and

alpacas, should remain vigilant of

roaming dogs and regularly check on

their animals.

Dogs running around ewes can cause

extreme stress, which can trigger

miscarriage in those that are pregnant

or, for ewes who’ve already birthed

lambs, can cause them to abandon or

starve their lambs.

‘‘By walking in areas where there are

no dog restrictions and keeping your dog

on aleash, you avoid the chance that your

dog may cause stress to these animals or

attack,’’ says Dr Vaughan.

With several known attacks already

this year, lambing season is atimely

reminder for dog owners to be aware of

Control Act 1996.

Owners of dogs caught harassing sheep

are liable for ahefty fine, as well as

compensation for any loss of stock.

The Act also protects the right of

farmers to shoot adog disturbing their

stock in certain circumstances and gives

courts the power to order destruction

Calves cannot change

Statistics showed us that

approximately 62% of

heifer calves die in the

first three weeks of life.

It is, therefore, crucial

that our calf rearing

young animals the best

beginning.

Scours is the main

reason for death in

calves during those 21

pneumonia with 25% of

cases and the remaining

14% attributed to other

causes.

With the exclusion of

antibiotics in many

markets worldwide, the

need for probiotic

ingredients is increasing.

All­Lac® Paste from

probiotic that provides

then makes it harder for

any bad bacteria to get a

Another important

factor to achieve the best

Pioneering Feminist, by Diana Morrow

In 1877, Kate Edger became thefirstwomantograduate

in life she workedfor the LeagueofNations.

Vision behind exhibition

Along­term vision for an exhibition of

artwork celebratingMatariki hasbeen

realisedinKaiapoi’s Art on the Quay

Gallery.

The Nga Kakano oMatariki ­The Seeds

of Matariki exhibition, is the

collaborative work of the children and

staff at Honeybeez Preschool and

Nursery in Kaiapoi. The initial vision

for the exhibition alsocame from one of

the centre’s early childhood teachers,

artist Steve Biggins, of Waikuku.

‘‘The ideafor the art exhibition came

about from conversations with fellow

kaiako (teachers) about aproject that I

did up in Whangarei, displaying art in a

gallery from the preschool tamariki

(children) Itaughtthere and how I

would love to do it again,’’ Steve said.

He contacted the Art on the Quay

Gallery manager Jackie Watson 13

months ago about space in the gallery

for apossibleexhibition.‘‘The next free

space just happened to be this month

(July), coinciding with Matariki which

was perfect for our centre with our

strong focus on te reo and Maori

culture.’’

Each teacher at the centre

concentrated on one of the nine

Matariki stars for the exhibition

project, using interactive learning to

encourage the children to create

artwork from within that focus.

For example,the teacher who focused

on Waita, the star associated with food

harvested from the sea and its link to

kaimoana (seafood), gathered some

mussels, cooked them with the tamariki,

ate them with them, then used the shells

in their artwork.

Each of the teachers also used the art

projects to educate the children, aged

between 10 months and five years, about

the Matariki stories, myths, legends and

concepts.

Steve said it was exciting for the

tamariki and their whanau to have their

art work displayed in apublic gallery.

Not all of the 46 young artists who

contributed to the exhibition attended

the opening, on July 15, but the families

who did were amazed at how different

the artwork looked displayed in the

gallery space and not just on the fridge

at home.

‘‘It is great to expose the tamariki to

new ways of displayingtheir hard mahi

(work) and giving them some

acknowledgement for how creative they

are,’’ he said.‘‘This is the firsttime a

gallery space has been used to display

their work, but it will not be the last

time.’’

communication, were just some of the

issues raised at ameeting to weigh up

forming aWaipara Catchment Rivercare

group.

Rima Herber, an ecologist, called the

Waipara meeting, and received support

to get agroup under way, facilitate it, and

seek funds for resources and projects.

‘‘As facilitator, my role will be to work

in the interests of the Waipara

Catchment Rivercare Group and to work

to ensure any input from governing

bodies is on the terms of the group.

‘‘Catchment groups around the country

have found that having afacilitator is

crucial to their success,’’ she says.

Around 25 people attended the

meeting, with participants including

Hurunui Mayor Marie Black and

Environment Canterbury (ECan)

councillor Grant Edge.

Rima says John Holmes, from the

Hurunui District Landcare Group, who

spoke at the meeting, said funds were

available from the catchment group

provided members of the Landcare

group and associated members were

involved.

There was abig focus on willows in the

river bed, with some saying they impeded

the flow in the recent heavy rainfall, and

caused significant flooding and damage

to landowners’ property.

There was also concern at the amount

of water willows sucked up during the

summer heat with one estimate showing

‘‘at least half acumec of the summer

river flow is lost due to the huge numbers

of willows’’.

Rima says the group wants to know

more about awillow programme being

started by ECan in the river, such as how

far down the river this will go, what

methods of control are being used and

what will happen to the biomass.

She says there were also questions on

why sheep were no longer being used for

weed control in the river, and some

landowners bordering the river, who

were controlling willows and other

weeds, wanted to know if what they were

doing was permitted.

Historical poor management and poor

relationships with ECan and the

Hurunui District Council, leading to lack

of trust, damage to the environment and

the wildlife by inappropriate vehicle use

in the river bed, and riparian areas all

came up for discussion.

It was agreed Rima should be paid a

part­time wage to ensure the group

remained active and saw projects

through.

She says the next step will be to hold a

formal meeting in late July to decide on

the structure of the group and to start

clarifying priorities.

Migrant visa rules relaxed

Federated Farmers has welcomed the

government decision to extend the

essential skills visa for migrant staff

working in the dairy sector.

The government is increasing the

duration of essential skills visas and

streamlining the application process to

make it easier for both employers and

visa holders while the border remains

closed.

‘‘These valued staff are offering just

what their visa says, essential skills to the

New Zealand dairy industry,’’ Federated

Farmers employment and immigration

spokesperson Chris Lewis says.

‘‘Since the original lockdown Feds and

Dairy NZ have been in constant contact

with the government explaining how

important those valued staff on essential

skills visas are to our industry.

‘‘We need them helping with calving

and putting cups on cows now more than

ever with the border still closed and low

domestic unemployment.’’

Maximum duration of essential skills

visas for jobs paid below the median

wage will increase from one year to 2

years, while for those in jobs paid above

the median wage the visa duration will

remain at three years.

The application process for renewing

essential skills visas will also be

simplified for workers remaining in their

existing roles.

‘‘Alongside the need for the current

exception process for bringing new

workers across the border, keeping hold

of those good people already here

working in our industry has been the

other key part of the message from Feds

and Dairy NZ,’’ Mr Lewis says.

‘‘We don’t want these people taking

their good skills and work habits and

exiting the country because of visa

uncertainty, and this is an important step

to help keep them here.

‘‘We are doing what we can to attract

Kiwis to the industry, but all provincial

employers feel like they are fighting over

the same scraps of the labour force pie at

the moment.’’

The requirements for all employers

and workers to move to the ‘‘Accredited

Employer Work Visa’’, which was due to

come into effect on November 1, will be

delayed until the middle of next year.

Migrant staff ... New rules are expected to

make it easier to retain and recruit migrant

staff.

PHOTO: FILE

‘‘Farmers and their workers have got

enough to worry about at the moment

without getting their heads around this

new visa system,’’ Mr Lewis says.

‘‘We just want to get on with the

business of farming and anything that

helps ease the current labour woes is a

good step, so Federated Farmers would

like to thank the government for listening

to the concerns of our farmers on this

one.’’

Hurunui locks in semi-final spot

RUGBY

By PETER WILLIAMS

AND DAYLE SUTHERLAND

The clash at Culverden last

Saturdaybetween Hurunuiand

Oxford was always going to be a

vitalone in determiningwhich

teamsmade it through to the

semi­finals.

Saracensand Kaiapoihad

already lockedinhome semifinals,

but Oxford, Ashley and

Hurunui were locked in athreeway

battle for the remaining two

semi­final placesinthe Luisetti

SeedsNorth Canterbury rugby

competition.

With Oxford and Hurunui

bothfinishing on 19 points,

Hurunui takes the third ranking

by virtueofhaving beaten

Oxford in theirmost recent

match.

Saracenswill host Oxfordand

Kaiapoi will hostHurunuion

Saturday.

Finalpoints after the roundrobin:

Saracens 31,Kaiapoi 30,

Hurunui 19, Oxford 19, Ashley

17, Glenmark­Cheviot16, Ohoka

10, Woodend 1.

Superb defence

The field at Culverden was

tackyafterrecentrain and

outstandingdefence by both

Hurunui and Oxford ensured

the match was alow­scoring

one.

Matt Roberts put Oxfordin

frontwith an early penalty, but

halfway through the first spell

Hurunui wingerSam Grigg

finished off agood movement

with what proved to be the only

try of thematch.

Most of the game was played

between the two 22 metre lines.

The only pointsadded in the

second halfwere four penalties

–threebyHurunui’s Digby

Heardand anotherbyRoberts

for Oxford.

DannyBrookerand young

prop JeremyYorke excelled in

the Oxford forwardpack, while

Cale Dobby, WillPears and Tom

Williams all carried wellina

Hurunui forward effort

stiffened by the insertion of

Crusader Luke Romano at halftime.

Romano’s value to the team

was minimisedwhen he was

sent to the sin bin for a

dangeroustackle.

Two centurions ... Referee Gavin Cate and Kaiapoi front rower

Luka Tootoo marked important milestones at the weekend.

Needing to beat the more

highly­rankedKaiapoi side to

ensure aplace in the semifinals,

Ashley came out firing.

Ashleywent at apointa­minute

pace for the first 10

minutescourtesyofatry by

Naaria Wilson Bairds with

Korbyn Grayadding the

sidelineconversiontoan

earlier penalty kick.

But from this point on

Kaiapoi clawedback the

ascendancy andbyhalf­time

wingers, Kimeon Reade and

Reuben Tiwekahad both

scored tries in the corner, one of

whichwas converted by Taine

Jacobs­Lawson.

Thefirst 10 minutes of the

second­half was allKaiapoi.

As the Ashleyerrorrate

climbedinresponsetothe

pressureKaiapoi was applying.

The home team added three

more tries to JarredGilmore,

Tiweka and LoganBell.Two of

these wereconverted by Jacobs­

Lawson and Kaiapoi had shot

out to an unassailable31­10

lead.

Kaiapoi’s benchwas not as

effective as usual and it failed to

add any morepoints.

In the final two minutes

Ashley scoredtwo consolation

tries whichnot only restored

some respectability to the

scoreline, but also gained a

bonus point.

But it wasnot enoughtostop

Hurunui fromleap­frogging

Ashley on the points table, with

the latternarrowlymiss out on a

semi­final spot.

Matt Couch was the pick of

the Ashleyplayers while the

Duckworth brothersboth toiled

away industriously in the front

row.

For Kaiapoi, Tiweka

continued his goldenrun of

form, thistime fromthe wing

position ratherthan his

customary place at fullback and

Codey Grimes hadanother

strong game at half­back.

Another feature of the match

wasthat it was the 100th time

that referee Gavin Cate had

controlled adivision 1fixture

and he did so with his usual

efficiency. This mark was

matched by hard­working

Kaiapoi propLuka Tootoo, who

also broughtuphis 100 games in

this match.

Glenmark­Cheviot didn’tlet

recentresults deter it from

delivering acomprehensive

victory over Ohoka, 42­7at

Cheviot Domain.

The visitorswere never let

into the game with Glenmark­

Cheviot showingthe greater

intentofthe two sides.

Glenmark­Cheviot’s pack

generated structured defence

and the loose forward trioof

Matt McKellar,Jacob Vincent

and Johnny Slossensured

quality ball at the break down

and theeducated boot of Brook

Retallick was never far away.

“The Key of knowledge...” (Luke 11:52)

RUSSIAN MILITARY ACTION

FORETOLD IN THE BIBLE?

Are we concerned where the World is heading?

Can we believe statements made by media to be

the truth? The Bible is an ancient book ,writing

of World events through the ages, presenting a

sure word of prophecy. How can webesure of

this? If aprophecyhas been fulfilled, we can have

assurance that it will happen again as predicted.

Compare the scattering of Israel and it’s return to

it’s ancient land. Therefore we can expect that a

power North of Israel will rise to sweep over the

Middle East causing devastation, and involving

the whole World in it’s endeavours. Today is the

day of opportunity.

FUNDERS

Kaiapoi-Tuahiwi |Rangiora-Ashley

Oxford-Ohoka |


Introducing four artists who

have entered every Kaiapoi Art

Expo since its inception.

Paul Smith

An intuitive artist, Paul uses

collage to create harmonious

blends of colour and texture.

He uses unusual materials such

as tissue paper and amedium

called gelli plate to create

unique abstract artworks that

grace homes throughout the

country.

Transparent washes of colour

reveal images and patterns

created by Paul with all manner

of tools, even credit cards come

in handy for scraping of colour,

and adding atouch that may

or may not meet his exacting


In the last four weeks he created

six works but four of them

failed to meet his level of satisfaction

and were destroyed.

Of course, all is not lost as they

can always be painted over at a

later date.

“I like to keep painting and

keep my stocks up in case I

get requests for apainting,” he

says.

“I’m always producing something.

In winter my trips to the

studio are pretty short as it’s in

the garage and quite cold.

“But even 10 minutes changing

this bit there, adding that

there is enough.”

Paul likes change and resists

the galleries who like to

pigeonhole artists so they know

what they are getting.

“I don’t wanttoget stale, I’m

constantly developing styles

and techniques and changing,”

he says.



His work sells at Artbox gallery

in Christchurch, the Culverden

Gallery and at Arts in Oxford.

Paul has aplea to artlovers;

“Buy art from living artists, the

dead don’t need the money.”

Karin Werner

of Loburn has won the People’s

Choice Award previously for

her equine paintings. Using

watercolour, Karin has captured

the magical moment of a

new foal with its mother which

certainly has the potential to be

apopular pick for the People’s

Choice Award.

Karin’s love of horses and

drawing have always been

major themes in her life.

“Starting on the wallpaper

with crayon at an early age,

I’ve since progressed to more

suitable surfaces and materials,

and now work mainly in oils,

watercolours, pastels and pencils,”

she says.

“My subjects still include

horses and my own chestnut

mare has featured in quite a

few paintings and has earned

her keep as amodel. Ialso

enjoy painting our awesome

South Island landscapes. Portraits

of pets and more recently

people’s classic vehicles are

other subjects Idepict representationally,

but more imaginary

and interpretive work, or

designs also interest me.”

Karin is mainly self-taught,

but she has found life drawing

classes and painting en plein air

have improved her observation

and painting skills.

Amember of the Waimate,

Ashburton and Rangiora Art

Societies.

Elizabeth Ross

started as aporcelain artist and


detail required for that medium.

It wasn’t until 2007 that

she started painting on canvas

transferring her well honed

skills to anew medium. The

resulting depictions of birds,


meticulously executed.

Many pieces of her porcelain

art have found their way

overseas and now her paintings

too. In 2018 her landscape

painting of Lake Mathesonwas

acommission from avisiting

American and it now hangs in

the Ronald Reagan Memorial

Hospital in LA.

Locally her works sells in

Culverden Gallery, Oxford and

at Artarama.

Painting is alife saver for

Elizabeth who although con-



spending her time creating art.

Ruby Whitty

grew up in England and trips to

London’s Tate Gallery inspired

her from age eight.

Ruby too started in another

medium, that of folk art which

she enjoyed for many years,

decorating wooden boxes of all

shapes and purpose. Now she is

making the unusual move from

paint to pencil and some of the

works for sale in the Expo will

be pencil drawings.

With family in California,

Perth, Tasmania, and UK, she

is often sent photos they would

like her to turn into paintings.

“They all have my work on

their walls. On my last trip I

took my art folder and said

‘Help yourselves.’”

Ruby sells her work on Trade

Me and Facebook and the last

six went to buyers in the North

Island.

She is self-taught and is

known for her still life paintings,

but recently moved to

an abstract style focusing on

pipes, industrial pipes of all

sizes with amechanical look

about them. One of her entries

for the Expo, shown here, is

Cornwall, apainting from a

family photo.

Like Elizabeth, painting is an

escape for Ruby, who spends

most of her time at home as

she does not drive and her only

trips from home are on her

mobility scooter.

She enjoys driving it around

the former red zone nearby

and along the stop banks of


subject material to paint.


Corcoran French supports

local North Canterbury artists

and the work they create.

Local artists matter

in our community

because they provide

asense of creativity

and an opportunity

to look at the world

around us from

another perspective.

Aparticular mention we want togive is to the Waimakariri Arts Trust.

with local artists and business sponsors to produce the Kaiapoi Art Expo

over the past 15 years and it’s agreat opportunity to see the work of our

local budding and experienced artists.

In addition, the Trust has initiated some great projects for local

communities, such as the Kaiapoi mural, artist studio visits in Art week,

“have ago” as part of the Art Expo, the School Art Expo as well as
