PEOPLE’S CHOICE LIFT-OUT INSIDE

Retail spend

grows in the

Waimakariri

Retail spend continuestogrow in the Waimakariri

district despite the uncertainty of Covid­19.

Figures from Marketview, basedonPaymark eftpos

transactions,showsthe total spend in the Waimakariri

district from January to May this year was $296.6 million.

This compares to $232.8 million for the same period

last year and $241.3 million in 2019.

Last year’s dip is due to the impactofthe Covid­19

lockdown, Waimakariri District Council business centres

manager Simon Hart says.

‘‘The loss of spend during the lockdown was mitigated

to some degree by significant spendingjust before

lockdown,and people spending morethan normal

directly after lockdown.’’

Last year’s spend quickly bounced back after lockdown

and finishedthe year ahead of 2019’s totalspend.

‘‘It would be afair assumption that without lockdown,

retailspend in 2020 would have been somewhere in the

midpoint of 2019 and 2021,’’MrHart says.‘‘This reflects

reasonably steady retailgrowth within the district over

the last three years all thingsconsidered.’’

EnterpriseNorth Canterbury chiefexecutive Heather

Warwick says there is plenty of optimism in the region,

despitethe challenges of Covid­19,drought and flooding.

‘‘It's very pleasingtosee how well the business

community has come through the last year in general, and

how some of the projections given at the start of lockdown

have not come to pass, particularly the unemployment

projections.

‘‘We are not back to ‘business as usual' just yet, however

North Canterbury businesses remain confidentand

continuetoplan and respond well for adverse events.’’

The Marketview data covers retail spend across six

categories including apparel and personal, cafes,

restaurants, bars and takeaways,fuel and automotive,

groceries and liquor,home and recreation retail, and

other.

Rangioraled the way with $184.9 million spentfrom

JanuarytoMay, up from $159.6 million last year and

$162.5 million in 2019. Kaiapoi’s retail spend was $48.2

millionfor the first five months of this year,upfrom $43.1

millionlast year and $44.9 million in 2019.

In Oxford,around $9.5 million was spent earlierthis

year, which was down slightly on last year’s retail spend

of $9.6 million, but up on the $9.2 million spentin2019.

Spending in Woodendand Pegasuscontinues to grow

with $15.5 million spent earlierthis year compared to

$13.6 millionin2019 and last year’s dip to $11.3 million.

NC councils seek information

By ROBYN BRISTOWAND DAVID HILL

The Hurunui District Council willnot be

joiningthe Government’s3Waters

Reformprogramme based on the

information it hastodate.

It is thelatest council to express

concern about thelackofinformation, the

haste withwhich the Government is

drivingthe reform, andthe tighttimetable

to consult withtheir communities.

The Waimakaririand Kaikoura District

Councilshave also expressedsimilar

concerns.

HurunuiMayor Marie Black saysthere

are aspectsofthe analysisreleased by

Government in support of thereforms,

thatare not directly applicable in thethe

HurunuiDistrict.

‘‘It(theanalysis) does not fairlyreflect

our current position, andsecondly it

included an underlyingmessage that

council’shistoricallyhaveunder­invested

in basic infrastructureassets.

Mrs Blacksays thecouncilhas intimate

knowledgeofits infrastructure, and had

invested heavily in these critical assets

overrecent years.

‘‘Itwouldappear on thefactsinfront of

us thatthe compellingcase forchange is

unfounded, and we areunlikely to

considerthatthis ReformProgramme

willbring thebestoutcomefor our

district.

She assuresratepayersthe council

teamisscrutinisingall theinformation it

has received.

‘‘Itisseriously disappointingtohear

thatwehave onlyeight weeks to apply

thisscrutiny and undertakecommunity

engagement, prior to making thefinal

decision,’’ she says

‘‘Itismy opinion, theinformationthat

the government hasprovided is not robust

enoughtoconvince me that the proposed

benefits of reform will be realised.

‘‘Based on theinformation receivedto

date and thecomparative datathatwe

have available, ourcouncil willnot be

preparedtoparticipate withthisReform

Programme.’’

She says engagementwith theHurunui

communityiscritical and shewants the

community’sinvolvement.

Meanwhile the Waimakariri District

Council has sent LocalGovernment

MinisterNanaia Mahutaalistof28

questionsitwants answerstoonthe

reformssoitcan take ‘‘meaningful

consultation to its community’’.

MayorDan Gordon says in the letterthe

council wantsconstructive and

informative engagement on the reforms

proposedtobetter understand thebasis

of theinformationand assumptions sent

to thecouncil.

‘‘This willhelp us fulfilour statutory

and partnershiprequirementsunderthe

LocalGovernment Act2002.

‘‘Similarlyitwill enable the council to

fullyunderstandthe proposal and consult

effectivelywith ourcommunity,’’ Mr

Gordon says.

He says thecouncilisdisappointed the

timeline for consultation haschanged

from December to September,withno

date finalised.

‘‘Theproposedreform is asignificant

issuefor our community,and it is

important thatweunderstandall the

information in detailbeforeweseek the

viewsofour residents.

‘‘Based on thelimited information

presented so far, the viewofthe

councillors, and my own, would be thatwe

do not jointhe Government’s 3Waters

Reform programme.

‘‘Atthispoint we arenot convinced

thereare benefitsfor the Waimakariri

community,’’ Mr Gordon says.

Kaikoura chief executiveWillDoughty

is seekinganexplanation after

Department of Internal Affairsfigures

suggestedthe council wouldneed to

invest $280million on its3Waters

infrastructureover the next30years.

‘‘Wehaven’t made afinal decision as

yet, andweare waiting formore

information, but we are questioningthe

informationthey have provided.

‘‘The governmenthas said it is still a

choice forlocal councilsonwhetherto

optinor opt out,but we are seeing aslight

change in thelanguage.’’

Mr Doughtysaysthere was

considerableinvestmentinthe district’s3

Waters infrastructureaspart of the $38

million earthquake rebuild, which was

completed last year.

‘‘If we compareittoour infrastructure

strategy, we estimate thatwewill needto

spend just over $28 million.

‘‘The totalvalueofour 3Waters

network is $57 million.

‘‘Weunderstandthe numbers have

beendoneatanational macro economic

level, but when it’s broughtdown to a

local level for asmall, localcouncil, how

real are thosenumbers forour

community.’’

With the prospect of change on the

horizon, with3Waters, Resource

Management Act and local government

reformbeingproposed, Mr Doughtysays

thecouncilisnot opposed to change.

‘‘Fromwhat we have seen to date, we

can’t seethe casefor change at alocal

level. But the voice of local government

hastobeabout what’s bestfor ourrate

payers, ratherthan what’sbestfor the

entity, so if thecase forchange can be

made then we oweittoour community to

support it. One thingisfor certain is this

community understandshow to respond

to change and we willdealwith these

reforms as it becomesclearer.’’

Councils’ underestimating water costs

Councils such as Kaikoura are

underestimating the future cost of

maintaining their 3Waters

infrastructure, the Department of

Internal Affairs (DIA) says.

The DIA estimates it will cost up to

$280 million over the next 30 to 50 years

to maintain and upgrade Kaikoura’s 3

Waters infrastructure, while the

Kaikoura District Council estimates the

required investment to be $28 million.

‘‘TheDepartment of Internal Affairs

believes the figures providedto

Kaikoura and other councils are robust

and well founded,’’ ADIA spokesperson

says.

‘‘Theseprojectedcosts need to be

considered in the contextofahistoryof

under investment in water infrastructure

in New Zealand and the need to take a

long­term (30 to 50 year)

intergenerational view in providing safe

and environmentally appropriatewater

services.

‘‘There is avery low probability that

Kaikoura could deliver three waters

services at alower cost on its own than

what might be expected throughreform,

and even in that scenariothere wouldbe

worse service, health and environmental

outcomes for residentsassociated with

the lower level of investment.’’

The DIA’s figures are basedonthe

experiences of local councils operating

underthe Water Industry Commission of

Scotland, following3Watersreforms in

the United Kingdom.

The UK reforms led to much higher

costs than wereinitially expected, which

helps to explain why the DIA’sestimate

is significantly higherthan local council

estimates,the spokesperson says.

The DIA says under­estimating the

costs of consumer expectations, a

changing regulatory environment,

meeting iwi/Maoriaspirations, and

building resilience to climate change

and future seismic events are reasonsfor

the differences.

‘‘Thechallengeofestimating future

investment requirements can be

compounded by some councils’

imperfectand incomplete information

on the condition of theirassets, a

situation that has been highlighted by

theauditor­general on several

occasions.’’ The DIA’s analysis has been

independentlyreviewed by both Beca

Ltd and Farrier Swier Consulting Pty

Ltd, the spokespersonsays.

Expanding support

By DAVID HILL

NorthCanterbury Neighbourhood

Support is keen to expandits community

support, if it can securethe funding.

SarahSaunderstook overasmanager

four months ago on apart time basisto

oversee the organisation’sworkacross the

Waimakariri, Hurunui and Kaikoura

districts.

‘‘It’s quite difficult to secure funding.

Our longterm aim would be to be working

in partnershipwith the councils.’’

She has one staffmember in Rangiora,

whilethe Kaikoura District Council has a

staffmember ‘‘who lives and breaths

anything neighbourhood support in her

position’’and hopes to appoint someone in

the Hurunui districtsoon, if funding

allows.

Neighbourhood Support has avarietyof

roles, includingproviding support in

emergencies, working alongside police,

CivilDefenceand community patrols, and

supporting street groups.

‘‘We workinwith policeoncrime

preventionand we worktosupport

neighbourhood connections, and through

our database(North Canterbury Gets

Ready) we connect with Civil Defence to

help get messages out to support our

communities.’’

The recent flood event highlighted the

valueofthe NorthCanterbury Gets Ready

database, which allows communities to

know what resources are available, such as

wheretofind agenerator, trailer or

defibrillator, Sarah says.

More than3500 NorthCanterbury

households were signed up to GetsReady

before the flood event and that number

keepsgrowing.

‘‘My hopeiswecan develop astrong

relationship with CivilDefence and the

councils to be abletowork together to

achieve some fantastic resultstoensure

our communities are safe,resilient and

connected.

‘‘And that comes back to what we

provide andwhatthey can provideeach

other.’’

Sarah works closely with senior

constableTony Maw to support crime

prevention and to help prevent the spread

of misinformation.

‘‘It might be that there’s aspate of car

burglaries in an area, so we can senda

message with Gets Ready.

‘‘An importantpart of our work is

helping people to feel safe andmaking

peopleaware of whatthey can do to help

their neighbourhoods to be safer.’’

Simplethings such as closing windows

when you go out and locking car doors can

reducethe risk of crime.

While there are perceptions on social

media of high crime rates,North

Canterbury ‘‘is avery safecommunity’’

compared to the restofNew Zealand.

Around80percent of policecall outs are

for domestic violence.

Prospective volunteers,streetleaders

and board members cansign up on Gets

Ready at northcanterbury.getsready.net/..

Being astreet leader requires a

commitment of two hoursamonth,

‘‘receiving information and informingyour

streetgroup’’ and NeighbourhoodSupport

provides the resources to establish astreet

group.

Lego apopular holiday activity for all ages

Lego was the centre of attention in

Kaikoura during the last week of the

school holidays.

Toni Batey, amum of two teens, set up

an ‘‘Inspiration Corner’’ with the help of

the Creative Communities Trust and the

Kaikoura District Council.

She says there is no use having toys in

boxes, and set the corner where all ages

could go and hang out with their lego

and show it off.

This also gave her achance to get out

collection of 60 sets.

With the help of another Lego

enthusiast Lorraine Diver, she set about

displaying builds which were voted on

by the public.

“It was lovely to see parents, sitting on

the floor with their kids and building

from the free flow building blocks.

‘‘We had over 300 people through the

event with over 60 build entries.’’

Paper Plus sponsored prizes for those

that the public voted the best.

Suburban School took out the schools

build, Andrew Harvey, adad, won the

best kitset build with his rocket and Gus

Hoggard, aged 12, won with his tank

built using his imagination.

The youngest who created alego

build, was 3and the oldest 74. Lorraine

and Toni are already planning asimilar

event next year.

Giant totara ageing gracefully

By SHELLEY TOPP

Agiant totara in Ashley Gorge could be

Waimakariri’s oldest tree.

At an estimated age of more than

1000­years­old the totara, which is

situated on the Forest Giants Track

under development on the bush face

above the existing Loop Track at Ashley

Gorge, is adefinite candidate for oldest

tree in Waimakariri, said John Burton,

manager of the Ashley Gorge Tracks

Group.

‘‘My guess is that this totara is

certainly hundreds of years old and

quite possibly more than one thousand

years old,’’he said.

Trees, especially those this old, were

vital to the environment for many

reasons.

‘‘They provide ahome for many living

beings and exist in an environment

humans could learn so much from,’’ he

said.

‘‘Especially if we want to survive as a

species on this planet along with all the

other species, most of which wouldn't

mind greatly if we weren't here.’’ he

said.

‘‘Trees also clean the air by taking in

carbon, locking it up and producing

oxygen, and forests provide acalming,

stimulating and educational place to

spend time in.’’

Department of Conservation (DOC)

community ranger Sarah Ensor said it

would be difficult to pin point the oldest

tree in the Waimakariri district, but

there would be many contenders.

‘‘The first to spring to mind for me is

the giant matai that the Ashley Gorge

kaitiaki(guardians) are hoping to create

aside track to, and Ithink there is a

massive New Zealand tree fuchsia

(kotukutuku), there too,’’ she said.

‘‘Failing that there are some pretty

magnificent New Zealand tree fuchsias

Young caretakers ... Amassive Totara tree believed to be more than 1000­years­old, on

on the Kereru Loop Track at Wooded

Gully (in the Mt Thomas Forest

Conservation Area).’’

However, DOC’s North Canterbury

operations manager, Kingsley Timpson

believes the matagouri and kanuka trees

situated in Okuku Gorge, ‘‘true right on

the journey up to Pinchgut Hut and

around the hut,’’ could also be

candidates for Waimakariri’s oldest

tree.

‘‘These trees are likely to be many

hundreds of years old, way in excess of

the surrounding beech trees, as they are

very slow growing,’’ he said.

‘‘A matagouri the diameter of your

arm is likely to be acouple of hundred

years old and the same for kanuka.”

New Zealand’s oldest tree is believed

to be Tane Mahuta (Lord of the Forest),

which is located in Northland’s

Waipoua Forest and is estimated to be

between 1250 and 2500 years old.

However, compared to the world’s

oldest non­clonal, individual tree, a

Great Basin bristlecone pine in

California’s White Mountains, which is

thought to be 4852 years old this year,

New Zealand’s giant kauri is just a

young sapling.

Designer dance socks are helping point budding

ballerinas in the right direction, around the

world.

They are the brainchild ofJenna McKenzie, the

principal of Rangiora-based Jenna McKenzie

School of Dance.

Jenna isamazed her “crazy little sock idea” has

takenoff.

She lovestomakeballet magical andinteresting

for her students and uses imagery and props

to help them with their technique. Socks, with

fairies, wands, stars, with afew strings attached,

arenow proving to be an invaluableextensionto

this.

The socks grew out of achat atateachers

training course onhow to teach children the

technicalsideofballet without making it tedious

andonerous.

Imagining strings pulling attheir heels, mice

under theinsteps to keep them from rollingtheir

past year Satisfyhas rescued almost 60%

more food!

Alongside herenthusiasticteam,

Founder andChairperson PhillipaHunt,

is dedicated to reducingfood waste and

creating asustainable environment to

seeyoung people andfamilies thriving

physicallyand emotionally.

“Weare privileged to work with an

amazingbunch of volunteers, food

donors andcommunity organisations.

The scaleand impact of ourworkin

thecommunity wouldnot be possible

without their contributions.”

Making ballet magical

feet, and fairies on their toes to make sure their

kneespointed in theright direction have allbeen

helpful,along with stickers on their feet.

But anactual pair of socks with visual marks

children cansee,and touch, areproving farmore

effective.

Jenna, who learnt ballet from the age of 6, has

taught dance inRangiora for over 20 years, and

also in London foratime.

She did some “terrible” sketches ofher ideas,

then turned to glueingsomestringsonsocks and

introducedthemtothe class.

The class loved them, which encouraged Jenna

to developthe ideafurther.

“I then designed 10special features toassist

dance teachers inclass and students practising

at home. Ittook ayear to develop the design,

incorporatingalifetimeofdance teachingtricks.”

Rangiora’s Create Design helped bring the

project tolife with final designs, alogo and the

DanceSockAcademy website.

Today Jenna has 12 retailers around the world

including inItaly, Chile, Australia, South Africa

andScotland.

“Itissuper exciting,” she says.

Helping young writers find avoice

By DAVID HILL

AKaiapoi­based writer has

found apassion for working

with the next generation.

Originally from the United

States, Claire Wright moved

to Kaiapoi in January 2018 to

be with her fiancee and

began working with young

writers.

‘‘When Ifirst came here I

taught English to Korean and

Chinese children online. I

found Ihad no friends

because Iwas working at

night,’’ Claire recalls.

She signed up for a

creative writing course at

Kaiapoi Library, run by

Christchurch­based Write On

School for Young Writers

director Heather McQuillan.

‘‘I was the only non­retiree

in the class, so it was amazing

as there were so many

wonderful stories.’’

When Heather found out

Claire had adegree in

creative writing she invited

her to come to classes held at

Hagley College on Saturdays

during school terms.

‘‘I volunteered for afew

weeks and then Idid some

relief teaching, and by term

three Ihad my own class. I

really enjoy it and miss it

during the school holidays,’’

Claire says.

After starting with the

youngest age group and

working with teenagers,

Claire has aclass of years 8to

10 students and works with

Express yourself ... Claire Wright encourages young people to

experiment with their writing.

correspondence students.

‘‘The biggest thing with this

age group is they have this

need for perfection, but the

point of childhood is to fail.

The kids will often say ‘it’s no

good’, so Itell them it’s OK to

fail because you can rewrite

and improve it.

‘‘I find that the year 8s to

10s are more likely to

experiment and try different

things, and they’re also abit

more confident to try

different things. And they

don’t have the pressure of

exams.

‘‘I always give them a

lesson, but it’s up to them

whether they follow it, as

long as they’re writing.’’

One student is working on a

novel, while another

preferred drawing ‘‘and

that’s fine because it’s still

creative, but he wrote some

pretty cool stories anyway’’.

She is helping another

student who is into Fan

Fiction.

‘‘Fan Fiction often gets a

bad rap, but Ithink if your

children want to do it don’t

discourage them because it’s

agreat way to develop your

skills and find your voice

within the confines of other

people’s characters.

‘‘A lot of famous writers

started out writing Fan

Fiction.’’

When it comes to her own

work, Claire is on her fifth

draft of ayoung adult

romance novel, which her US

publisher has invited her to

‘‘revise and resubmit’’.

She is also working on abig

project on Greek mythology

which she hopes will be

published next year and has

written ahorror mystery

podcast series Fracture,

which can be downloaded

through Apple Podcasts and

Spotify.

Being an American, Claire

says she has no qualms about

working with US publishers,

but she feels for local writers.

‘‘It can be disheartening

for New Zealand writers.

There’s only asmall number

of New Zealand books which

get published each year and

it depends on what they’re

looking for.’’

Despite the challenges,

there are many ways for

today’s writers to express

themselves and writing

books is just the beginning.

There is also film, television,

video, podcasts, video games,

blogging and social media.

Taskforce

ensures Blair

is work ready

Blair Milne is on track to awork­ready

future at E­Cycle, Amberley, thanks to

the Mayor’s Taskforce for Jobs

programme.

E­Cycle is aNew Zealand­owned

company recycling electronic waste.

Blair was placed at E­Cycle amonth

ago and is already reaping the benefits of

life in the workforce.

‘‘The programme helped me to get out

and land this job. Having aroutine and

purpose has really improved my mental

health,’’ he says.

‘‘Working makes having free time and

doing things for fun more enjoyable

because Iknow Ihave earned it.’’

After ashort time working with Blair,

E­Cycle supervisor Aaron Miller has also

noticed positive changes.

‘‘Blair is reliable, and we can always

count on him to show up and do the job.

You can see the structure and skills he is

gaining from working, which is great.”

The Government­funded programme

connects local businesses with those

displaced by Covid­19, creating

opportunities for both parties.

Hurunui District Council business

recovery adviser Chris King says the

partnership with E­Cycle aligns with the

programme’s vision for youth.

‘‘It’s great having businesses like

E­Cycle who provide apathway for

sustainable work. E­Cycle is big on giving

youth achance and that foot in door that

they need for their futures in the

workforce.”

If you are alocal business or know a

young person who would be interested in

joining the venture, contact Joni or Chris

at the council on (03) 3148816 or email

Youth fast fail to success

NEWS

The North Canterbury News, July 29, 2021

21

By DAVID HILL

Kaikoura youth have been

learning how to fail.

Run by Te Ha oMatauranga (the

Kaikoura Education Trust), the

‘‘Fast Fail’’ entrepreneur

programme offers young people

the chance to learn some business

skills without the risks.

‘‘It’s about taking the pressure

off. We want them to get ataste for

setting up their own business,’’

trust co­ordinator Sarah

Beardmore says.

‘‘It’s been agood learning curve,

because some of them realised

their costs were too high, so they

had to go back and adapt. So

they’re learning by doing.’’

Young people were given $100

each to trial abusiness idea over

asix week period.

Ideas included bath bombs,

soaps, lip scrubs, baby scrubs,

rings, lip gloss and candles with

the items promoted on Facebook

and by word of mouth.

One enterprising student

purchased shoes wholesale to be

on­sold for aprofit.

Alongside the ‘‘Fast Fail’’

programme, the trust is running

three employment programmes

alongside Kaikoura High School,

including the weekly Tahi

Rangitahi, which helps to prepare

young people for the workforce

and works alongside the school’s

Gateway programme.

ASAP (after school aspiration

programme) is for 12 to 14 year

olds, where young people learn

soft skills such as writing aCV,

interview skills and focuses on

preparing for employment, Ms

Young entrepreneurs ... Melody Wang (12, left) and Karys Murphy (12)

have been making and selling bath bombs as part of the ‘‘Fast Fail’’ young

entrepreneurs programme run by Kaikoura’s Te Ha oMatauranga (Kaikoura

Education Trust).

Beardmore says.

Avocational education

programme is also offered, which

includes work experience.

The trust also has education

advocates to help students and

their families ‘‘to engage

positively with eduction and

upskilling around NCEA, because

it’s quite acomplex business

these days’’, she says.

These programmes, combined

with the Mayor’s Taskforce for

Jobs, means the trust has grown

from just three staff to 18 staff to

support the community in the

post­Covid environment.

‘‘Post­Covid there was

recognition from the government

that there was aneed in the

community and particularly in

Kaikoura and there was arisk of

disengagement, so this is to

support people re­engaging with

education and employment,’’ Ms

Beardmore says.

‘‘It’s also an acknowledgement

from the government that NGOs

on the ground are making abig

difference. Ground up

approaches work well.’’

The Mayor’s Taskforce for Jobs

in Kaikoura has placed 60 people

in full time employment and a

further 50 people in part time

positions.

Mentoring to help young people

learn to drive is also offered,

while digital inclusion courses

are run alongside Kaikoura

Library.

New season

challenges

By DAVIDHILL

Immigration restrictions are

continuing to be aheadache as calving

gets under way in North Canterbury.

Federated Farmers North

Canterbury senior vice­president

Rebecca Green says she has endured a

60 day wait to get afarm worker

approved by Immigration New

Zealand to work on the Cheviot farm

she contract milks with husband Blair,

after no locals applied for the position.

On the positive side, the

government’s relaxing of visa rules

means an existing farm worker has had

his visa extended from 12 to 24 months,

‘‘which is really great’’, she says.

‘‘It’s tough for alot of people. It’s just

very stressful and very hard for my

husband and our workers who are

having to carry the extra load.

‘‘A lot of farmers don’t have the

workers that they need, but we just

have to soldier on and get through.’’

Despite the drought and the recent

heavy rain events, Ms Green says the

farm is ready for calving after some

late season grass growth and the cows

are in good condition.

‘‘Calving is under way and if we don’t

get too many more adverse weather

events, we will be fine.

‘‘That second lot of rain probably hit

Hurunui worst than the (May 31) flood

event, but we have just got to try to do

the best we can.

‘‘We still care about our animals and

our people, so it’s about making sure

we are all OK.’’

Anetball injury means Ms Green is

out of action for calving, but she has

managed to find some casual workers

to step in.

‘‘But otherwise everything is looking

good.’’

While the farm is next to both the

Hurunui and Greta rivers, it has come

through the rain events without too

much damage, aside from the Greta

River flooding apump, some debris

and broken fences.

Fewer lambs expected

By DAVID HILL

Spring lamb numbers are expected to be

down around the region.

North Canterbury scanning contractor

Daniel Wheeler says scanning results

have been mixed around the region, with

the season’s drought taking its toll.

The Amberley­based contractor

pregnancy scans ewes in the North

Canterbury and Ellesmere areas.

He estimates scanning percentages are

down about 10 to 20 percent.

‘‘The results are quite mixed. Ewe

condition is pretty good, as farmers have

been feeding out for awhile and good

lamb prices are keeping farmers

optimistic,’’ Mr Wheeler says.

‘‘Overall Iwould say lambing

percentages are down 10% to 20%. Some

are down more than that and some have

seen little change.’’

Federated Farmers North Canterbury

meat and wool vice­chairman Stu Fraser

says most farmers have had reasonable

scanning results, given the dry summer.

‘‘We’ve had the same dry rate but less

triplets, which is agood thing when

there’s afeed shortage. Triplets can take

alot of extra work for very little return,

but twins are perfect.’’

While the recent rain saw the Hurunui

River in flood again, following the May 31

flood event, his farm had come through

with only minor damage.

With plenty of sunshine over the last

two months, soil temperatures have

remained at 9.5 to 10 degrees, allowing

for some winter grass growth and

providing some welcomed relief after the

drought.

Lambing is due to get under way in two

weeks and Mr Fraser is feeling

cautiously optimistic about the season

ahead.

‘‘It’s early days yet, but things are

looking promising. Everything else is

ticking along and it’s looking good for

beef and sheep. As long as the market

holds up, we will be right,’’ he says.

‘‘We are reliant on the weather, but as

long as we get some grass growth to

replenish our winter feed we will be

fine.’’

Fullback HarryMurray was

quickly into the action for

Saracens when he scored after

finding room downthe blind

side touch 25 metres outfrom

the Oxford line. Oxford missed

apenalty attempt before

Saracen’s AlexKennedy scored

from apushover.

Although the Saracenspack

was starting to dominate,

Oxford spent timeonattack

thatresulted in its impressive

numbereight, Jesse Houston,

scoring in the corner.

The scene for the final

outcome was set on the stroke

of half timewhenWillie Kerr

What’s happening in your

community…

MainPower Stadium Opening

The public are invited tojoin Mayor Dan Gordon

and the Councillors at the official opening of

MainPower Stadium.

It’s taken two years to build and the Council are

excited to show itofftothe wider District. The

6,000m 2 building will house four indoor courts and

includes acentral fitness facility, changing rooms,

coaching and meeting spaces, and seating for up

to 500 spectators.

Come along onSunday 8August at12pm for

the official opening and then you can join a

tour of the facility and enjoy demonstrations of

different sports as well as kapa haka groups. The

invitation is open to all and we look forward to

seeing you there.

It’s Back to School this Week

School holidays are over and our children will be

heading back to school.

Darker mornings and evenings, and wet or foggy

days all contribute to reduced visibility so please

make sure your kids know tobealert and are able

to be clearly seen.

Here are acouple of quick tips that might make

the school run safer for everyone:

• For those that live rurally, make sure your

youngsters wear some type of reflective garment

if they’re walking or cycling to school ortocatch

the bus. Giving drivers every opportunity to see

them helps reduce the risks

• Remember to check lights are working on

bicycles if riding in dark or low light conditions

• Drivers should allow plenty of space and slow

down when you see young people walking or

cycling. Children cannot accurately judge the

speed and distance ofapproaching cars –so

slow down and expect the unexpected

• Inareas where there are vulnerable road users,

like schools, reduce your speed regardless of

the speed limit. Driving to the conditions means

being aware of what is happening around you

and driving appropriately so you can react should

something change

• Police have alow tolerance for speed around

schools and when passing stationary school

buses. Drivers are required to slow down to

20km/h nomatter what side ofthe road they

are onwhen passing

• Ifyou drive your children to school, think about

parking further away from the school gate and

walk. This will help reduce congestion making

it safer for everyone. Double parking is of

particular concern during pick-up and drop-off

times and puts children at risk by creating more

hazards for them to negotiate.

More than 100 people from 11

local groups collected three

tonnes of rubbish and 93 tyres

during the Ashley River clean­up

on Sunday.

Canterbury Recreational 4WD

clubs, Rangiora Rotary, the

Ashley­Rakahuri Rivercare

Group, the Waimakariri District

Council, the Waimakariri Youth

Council, Eco Educate, Keep

Rangiora Beautiful, Rangiora

Lions, the Kaiapoi Walking

Group, Environment Canterbury

and the Rangiora Tramping club

all joined forces, following the

May 31 flood event.

‘‘While Keep Rangiora

Beautiful and Rotary do regular

clean ups on the river berm, to the

best of my knowledge this is the

first time so many groups have

come together in acombined

effort,’’ rivercare group secretary

Joan Miles says.

‘‘Already people are asking

when the next clean up is.’’

Joan says the volunteers are

already thinking about repeating

their efforts during Conservation

week in September.

‘‘A huge thank you to all the

volunteers. It was great to have

the youth council involved and a

special thanks to the 4WD clubs as

we could not have managed

without their help.

Joan says it is disappointing to

have seen so much rubbish

dumped by the river, when much

of it could have been taken for

All ages ... Lucy Tavener (left) and Isabella Tavener were among the

volunteers at the Ashley River clean­up on Sunday.

free to the Southbrook Recycling

Station.

‘‘Stuff like metal can be

dropped off for free,’’ she says.

‘‘Obviously more education is

required on where and how

people can dispose of rubbish.’’

The various groups came

together amid concerns at the

expected build up of rubbish at

the Ashley River mouth resulting

from the recent flood.

Over 100 people turned out to Activity

the Hanmer Springs Winter Festival.

Mostly family teams navigated their

way through the Hanmer Heritage Forest

on the Forest Amble trail, adorned with

face paint and glowsticks.

‘‘It was so good to see them get their

glow paint on and have aboogie in the

hall before they hit the tracks in Hanmer

Heritage Forest,’’ says Activity Hanmer

operations manager Michael van

Vledder.

‘‘It was our first Glowteering Event and

Idon’t think anyone else has done

anything like this in the region before.

‘‘Our bread and butter is hosting

schools on their Summer Camps so it was

great to get out of our comfort zone and

try something new, which is what we

encourage all our school kids to do when

on their camp experience.’’
