Kaiapoi, at an extraordinary meeting

on Monday evening.

The proposalissubject to the trust

obtaining the necessary resource

Trustdeputy chairperson Jason Mill

is hopefulthe aqua play parkcouldbe

operating in about three months.

‘‘We’re really pleased.

‘‘We’ve got threeresourceconsents

to apply for.

‘‘It’s all drafted up, so now we can get

them in and hopefullyget on with it.’’

He said the equipmentand life

jackets were‘‘sittinginashipping

container’’ in Singapore, ready to be

shipped to Kaiapoi, should the trust

get the go ahead.

The trustrequires land use and

buildingconsents from the

Waimakariri District Council and a

Waimakariri District Council

communityand recreation manager

ChrisBrownsaid at the meeting 89

submissions were receivedduring the

recent consultation,with 71 percent

supportingthe project and 23%

opposed.

The majorityofsubmissions came

from residents in the Kaiapoi­Tuahiwi

CommunityBoard area.

Amongthe concerns raised by

submitters were water quality,the

impact on wildlife including on

breeding and spawning, traffic

managementand parking, noise and

the risk of vandalism.

Mr Brownsaid the concerns would

be addressedduring the consent

processes.

He said the trusthad engaged an

ecologist ‘‘to investigate the effects of

the activity on the surrounding natural

environment’’.

It had alsobeen workingwith ECan

to assessthe levels of E.coli in the

lake, with 11 testsconducted to date.

‘‘The amount of E.coli in the water is

usedasaway of measuring the

suitability of the water for contact

recreation (i.e. swimming),’’ Mr Brown

said.

‘‘Atall timesthe waterquality has

remained within swimmable limits

during the recent testing, evenafter

significant rain events suchasthe

flooding in late May.’’

Members of the public attending the

meeting wereconcern the aquaplay

park would restrict publicuse, but Mr

Brownsaid alicence to occupy was not

the sameasaleaseagreement.

‘‘A licence is not soleuse, so it will

be available as it is now forwalking the

dog or enjoyingthe natural

environment.’’

The boardapproved athree year

licence to the WHoW CharitableTrust,

with the right of renewal.

It set arent of $1 for the firstyear.

The rental will be reviewedevery 12

months.

Whilethe licence willbeheld by the

business establishedbytrusteesand a

private investor.

The trust has committed to engaging

with local schools, Ngai Tuahuriri and

the wider community, if the project is

consented, to ensure the venture is a

family friendly activity.

The presenceofnitrate

contamination has been attributed,in

said.

The scholarship is being offered by

Hurunui Garden Festival Inc (HGF), and

whose family home is in the Hurunui

District.

The HGF is offering the scholarship

for next year, as part of its commitment

to invest back to its community if it

makes aprofit from its annual Hurunui

Garden Festival.

Chairman Gary Mitchell says HGF is

united in following its ethos of being

‘‘inspirational and supportive to the

residents of the Hurunui’’.

The scholarship is aimed at helping

the successful applicant with fees

associated with their course, such as

tuition fees, text books, and any course

related costs or living costs.

It is open to home schooled students,

local high school students, and those

who may live in the district, but attend a

high school or boarding school outside

the district.

Applications, which must include a

brief letter, and two references with

contact details, can be emailed to

and assess changes in water quality

overtime,ECan groundwater science

managerCarl Hansonsaid.

‘‘The resultsinthe latest reportare

Waimakariri’s new park and ride bus

service has carried more than 30,000

passengers into Christchurch in its first

six months.

The 91 and 92 Waimakariri direct bus

services from Kaiapoi and Rangiora to

central Christchurch began operating in

January as ajoint initiative between the

Waimakariri District Council,

Environment Canterbury, Waka Kotahi

New Zealand Transport Agency and the

Christchurch City Council in abid to

reduce congestion in the city.

Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon has

been using the service to commute to

meetings in the city and has been

pleased with the support.

‘‘I’m akeen user myself and it’s

fantastic to be able to skip the traffic

when heading in and out of Christchurch

during peak times

‘‘This service is agreat asset to our

community and everyone who gets on

board helps reduce our carbon

emissions by taking an extra car off the

road.’’

Waimakariri District Council road

safety co­ordinator Kathy Graham says

the park and ride service has given

commuters more choice.

‘‘While not taking the car to work isn’t

possible for everyone, it’s great that

there is more choice for those that can

consider alternatives, even if it’s just

once or twice aweek.

‘‘We also know there’s people who are

cycling to the park and ride and using

the lock up bike cages before jumping on

the bus, or parking their vehicle and

then cycling the remainder of the

journey.’’

Both services have four morning trips

to town every weekday and five return

trips in the afternoon, making use of the

T2 lanes on the Christchurch Northern

Corridor to ensure afast trip into town.

‘‘It’s really encouraging to see people

utilising the services. Thanks to all that

have supported these new services.

We’ll continue to promote them in the

coming months to encourage more

people to give public transport ago,’’

Metro spokesperson Thomas

McNaughton says.

Between 40 and 100 car parks are

available at each of the park and ride

facilities in Rangiora and Kaiapoi,

which are maintained by the

Waimakariri District Council.

Lighting, security cameras, and secure

bike storage cases are in place at each

facility and there is free Wi­Fi available

as part of the service.

The Rangiora service departs from

River Road, White Street and South Belt

facilities, while Kaiapoi users can get on

at the Charles Street and Wrights Road

sites.

The Wrights Road facility has recently

been upgraded, with abus turnaround

and pedestrian pick up point added

beside the existing car park.

The project partners will conduct a

review of the services after afull year

has passed, including timetables.

Kaikoura’slong term plan approved

By DAVID HILL

Will Doughty is relieved to get his first

Long Term Plan out of the way.

The Kaikoura District Council chief

executive stepped into his newrole in

February, and beganthe processof

developing the 2021/31 LongTerm Plan,

whichhas been adopted, after being

audited by Audit New Zealand.

‘‘Formecoming in and starting in

February it was afast learning curve in

picking it up. It’s beenagood process

and the councillors have acknowledged

the effort put in by thestaff.

‘‘Nowabout the deliveryand doing

what we say we are going to do.’’

Therewere 71 submissions received

whichraised273 individual points.

‘‘The majorityofsubmissions

supported the fivemain options we

consulted on across the different

categories, so we were able to adopt the

draft with our preferred options.’’

The biggestchange was in the roading,

where the councilwas unable to secure

funding from WakaKotahi NZ Transport

Agency.

Councillors voted to absorb the

funding shortfall through loan funding

and reduceoperational expenditure to

90 percent of what was originally

budgeted.

‘‘It is important that we get on and do

the work,otherwisewewillget ourselves

into moreofahole.’’

Aworking group will be established to

plan roadingand footpath renewal

priorities. Apart from roading and

footpaths, the council is not facing any

major capital expenditure overthe next

decade, due largely to the $38 million

earthquakerebuild,which was

completedlast yearfollowing the 2016

earthquake.

Withthe wastecontract renewed with

Innovative WasteKaikoura, planning

willbegin for anew transfer stationin

2023.

It willbeloan funded, withuser pays

feestohelp service the loan.

Kaikoura’s landfill is expectedto

reach capacity over the nextfew years,

so council staff willbegininvestigating

future options, with Kate Valley Landfill

in North Canterbury and Marlborough’s

Bluegums Landfill the most likely.

Nth Canty well represented at Olympics

By DAVID HILL

North Canterbury rowing great Athol

Earl says he was amazed to see New

Zealand’s latest Olympic rowing

success.

The 1972 Olympic Games men’s

rowing eight gold medallist admitted he

didn’t expect this year’s men’s eight to

win gold.

‘‘It was bizarre. Ithought they would

get bronze or maybe silver. It was mind

blowing and the women did bloody well

­silver is very good.

‘‘I’m on such ahigh today Idon’t know

how Iwill sleep tonight,’’ he said on

Friday.

This year’s New Zealand rowing

squad won gold medals in the men’s

eight, women’s pair and women’s single

scull events, and silver medals in the

women’s eight and women’s double scull

events.

Mr Earl, who also won Olympic bronze

with the 1976 men’s eight, says any

medal is ahuge achievement.

‘‘I know when we won the bronze, it

was four years after the gold so Iwas

gutted at the time, but now I’m quite

proud of it.’’

Alot has changed since his rowing

days, as there is amore professional

environment for today’s rowers with

four regional performance centres

feeding into anational programme

based at Lake Karapiro in the Waikato.

‘‘We were amateurs. They don’t make

big money, like the All Blacks, but it pays

for the food and the flat rent,’’ Mr Earl

says.

‘‘They have agood programme now

where they feed them in from the

juniors and the under­23s, so they can

see agood career path and the under­

23s train with the elite rowers so they

can see what they need to do.’’

Four local rowers followed in Mr

Earl’s footsteps by competing at the

Tokyo Olympics.

Sam Bosworth, who grew up at

Waipara, is the coxwain in the gold

medal winning men’s eight, while Ella

Greenslade, who is originally from

Waikari, is amember of the silver medal

winning women’s eight.

Oxford’s Olivia Loe and Eve

Macfarlane, from Parnassus, also

competed in the women’s quadruple

sculls, with the boat missing out on the A

final.

North Canterbury was represented in

other sports, with Oxford’s Tim Price

and his wife Jonelle competing in the

New Zealand equestrian three­day

eventing team.

In the mountain biking, Woodend born

and raised Anton Cooper placed sixth in

the elite men’s race in his first Olympics,

finishing just 12 seconds behind the

medallists.

Rangiora High School’s 2019 deputy

head girl Gabi Rennie was amember of

the Football Ferns women’s football

team, coming on as areplacement to

score agoal against Australia in her

international debut.

‘‘We are very proud of Gabi and her

achievements. She is awonderful role

model for North Canterbury’s young

people,’’ Rangiora High School

principal Karen Stewart says.

Joining Gabi at the Games were her

brother Liam and fellow ex­Rangiora

High School student Casey Higby

attending as camera operators for New

Zealand news media.

Consultation needed

There is no doubt that the Maori

language has asignificant place in New

Zealand.

Ilike using Maori place names and I

am an enthusiastic student of te reo. I

take regular classes, as is my individual

choice, but Imight add my ability does

not match my enthusiasm.

However, Iamwell aware that not

everyone shares my enthusiasm for

learning languages nor sees the role of te

reo exactly as Ido.

In the past few months, there has been

an increasing spotlight placed on

significant changes to how our

Government enacts the Crown

responsibility to uphold the Treaty of

Waitangi. While there are those who

vehemently support the notion of cogovernance

and, of course, those who

oppose it, it is my opinion that most New

Zealanders fall into athird group. This

group are more concerned with the lack

of transparency from the Government in

implementing co­governance policies

without consultation or engagement

with the whole of New Zealand.

National Party Leader Judith Collins

has been labelled aracist by the Maori

Party for bringing this conversation to

the table, and inviting Kiwis to have

their say on these matters.

My view is that asking legitimate

questions about the future of our country

is not racist.

Parliamentarians are voted in by the

people and work for the people. If we sit

back, don’t ask questions, and let the

Government advance what are pretty

radical changes, without advocating for

adequate consultation, then we are not

doing our jobs properly.

Now, Iamnot seeking to make a

judgement call about whether we should

change our name or not. That is neither

here nor there. Iamsimply giving voice

to the argument that perhaps before the

shift began to be put in motion, New

Zealanders themselves should have

been consulted.

It is presumptuous and disrespectful

to make adecision of such cultural

importance for the country without

engaging all who live there.

Sir John Key had the courage to stand

by his convictions and let New

Zealanders decide whether we should

change our flag.

No matter where you stood on the

issue, you still had the opportunity to

have asay. Sir John lost that debate

when New Zealand voted to retain the

existing flag and he accepted this

verdict.

Arguably changing the name of the

country is even more significant than

changing the flag, and it is my belief that

the right thing for the Labour

Government to do is to advance an open

conversation on this.

For some people, for example those

who have represented or fought for New

Zealand, there is avery strong connect

with our existing name.

For others, the te reo name Aotearoa

holds greater significance.

As Isee it, there is no right or wrong

perspective. However, it is wrong for a

public service and Government to

decide away forward with no regard for

how New Zealanders think or feel about

it.

Dear Editor,

Last weekend Iwas at Briscoes, Rangiora, shoppingfor items to send to afriend in

Westport whosecarer lost everything in the recent floods.

Walking around people exchanged pleasantries while shopping. One such ladytook

notice of what Iwas doing.

She asked me if Ihad afew minutes to wait and she’d be right back. She returned with

kitchen linens she wanted to contribute to my purchases.

Iwas literally blown away at her generosity and kindness, so I’d like to acknowledge

Jeanette who workswith Nurse Maudefor being such agreatKiwi.

I’ll never forget her smiling face and concern for another person unknowntoher.

Many thanks, Christine Knowles, Amberley

KAIKŌURA VIEWS

MAYOR CRAIG MACKLE

Lack of information

on water reforms

The Three Waters Reformisthe thing

that’sonmymind at the moment.

We don’t yet have the information

that we need to consult withour

community and makeaninformed

decision on what’s best for the people

of Kaikoura.

Kaikoura District Council has

invested heavily in its water

infrastructure, and we are actually in

abetterplace than many other

councils throughout New Zealand.

Beforethe earthquake we

increased the capacity of our water

and wastewater,and then, becauseof

damagesustained in the 2016

earthquake we replaced or renewed

most of our water infrastructure.

Our Infrastructure Strategy invests

$27.2 million over the next 30 years

for growth and enhancement of our

water infrastructure.

So, Iamsurprised to see that the

Government is indicating that we

need to spend $280 million over the

next 30 years, that’s aspendof$9.3

million each year ­onour water

infrastructure which is valued at $57

million. For me, the numbers just

don’t add up.

The rest of New Zealand (and

Nelson, Marlborough and Tasman)

willbegrouped into anotherthree

regionalwater authorities.

Ihave questions abouthow these

new authorities will be funded and

whatwill be the impact on our

ratepayers.

The government has afinancial

support package on the tablebut that

is just noise until we can answer some

questions on what it meansfor our

community.

How can we be surethat the three

waters will not be privatised in the

future and how willthe voiceofour

community and Te Runanga o

Kaikoura be considered. We also

needtoknow whatnew water

regulationswill be put in place as

partofthe reforms.

The Governmenthas allowed the

nexteight weeks for us to receive

moreinformation, question and fully

understandthe proposal before they

consider the next steps and outline

the processand timelines for reform.

We have beentold that councilscan

still decide to opt out of the Three

Waters Reform. I’ll be working

closely with the CEO and senior

managers to find out more and then

we’ll talk with you before reachinga

final decision.

Old friends reunite for concert

Achambermusic concert featuring

three of New Zealand’s most

accomplished musicians is scheduled for

Rangiora.

Vieux Amis (Old Friends)will be heldin

the RangioraLibrary’s ChamberGallery

on Wednesday August11, startingat

7.30pm.

It brings together three friends,

neighbours and long­standing colleagues,

violinist, Justine Cormack, cellist, James

Bush, and pianist, Sarah Watkins, who all

grew up togetherinChristchurch, and

have aclose friendship which has

extended into their careers.

Sarah and James toured with Chamber

Music New Zealandduring 1996 while

Justine and Sarah wentontowork

closely together as founding members of

the NZTrio. James’ fascinationwith the

freedom and energy of baroque music

took him overseasand where he worked

with many of Europe’s top baroque

orchestras and ensembles.

The concern programmedraws on the

varied expertise of each of the chamber

musiciansand features James’s baroque

practiceand Sarah and Justine’s shared

experiences with NZTrio’s modern

outlook.

Tickets to Vieux Amis cost $35 per

adult, $15 per studentand can be

purchased at the Rangiora Library (cash

only).

HURUNUITHEATRE GROUP ADVERTISING FEATURE

Showtime ... The cast hard at work for this year’s production.

Hurunui Theatre Group presents

MontyPythonis

coming to Waipara

The HurunuiTheatre Group is back

with acomic vengeance.

The theatre group was unable to

stage ashow last year, for the first

time in 27 years, due to Covid­19.

But it is hard at work rehearsing

Spamalot in the Waipara Hall, to

ensure this year’s offering will make

up for its no show last year.

So if you were looking for ashow

with maximum laughs, it’s hard to top

this parody of King Arthur’s questfor

the holy grail.

Diverting from the traditional

versionofthe legend, Spamalot’s

shenanigans include dancing girls,

waking the dead and killer rabbits,

while outside there is “plague with a

50% chance of pestilence and famine”.

Throughoutthe show Arthur, with

his sidekick Patsy, recruit knights to

join him on his quest, including Sir

Robin, Sir Lancelot, Sir Galahad and

Sir Bedevere.

They encounter such characters as

the Lady of the Lake, Prince Herbert,

the Black Knight, Not Dead Fred, and

the Knights who say Ni.

The cast, amixture of newbies and

regulars, are proceeding well with

rehearsals, also producing alot of

laughs and are somewhat strangely on

schedule,sothe mad panic of the last

two weeks leading up to opening may

yet be avoided.

Spamalot is directed by Dave

Nicholls, with Liz Grigg the musical

director.

Marilyn Johnsonreturns to thefold

playing various instrumentson

keyboard,tojoin long­time

accomplished pianist Anthony

Kingston and introducing Phil

Biddlecombe on drums, to give the

show its full musicalflavour.

So, for alate winter pick­me­up,get

along to the Waipara Hall, be

thoroughly entertained and partake of

the traditionalhalf time supper

provided as alocal schoolfundraiser

(included in the ticket), and cash bar

run by Torlesse Wines.

The show runs for asix night season

from August24toSeptember 4, plus a

matinee on Saturday, August 28.

Tickets are available from Sally

For July:

Consents issued: 65

Number of dwellings: 24

Average processing time for all consents: 11 days

Building value: $12 million

Fun fact:

Building expenditure in the Hurunui is at record high,

especially in Amberley and Hanmer Springs. In the past 12

months, 57 houses were built in Amberley, with 31 built in

the twelve months preceding that.

Considering anew woodburner?: The building team gets

about 100 applications for new woodburners each year

which are prioritised and consented fast, often in 24hrs.

"It is the intention of the Council

to present these numbers to you

and get your feedback on the right

course of action ......."

Central government reform of the local government sector

continues apace, with the current workstreams including

proposed reforms of three waters infrastructure, resource

management and a programme looking at the future of local

government, all being underway simultaneously.

The three waters and resource management proposals both seek

to streamline processes by centralising services and removing

local government input.

Whilst many of us can agree that the Resource Management Act

needs to be overhauled, its replacement needs to provide checks

and balances that ensure that any tradeoffs between

environmental, economic, cultural and social wellbeing are

properly considered. It is not clear that the current proposals from

the government will achieve the desired outcome.

The government believes it has made astrong economic case for

the transfer of community owned water assets from local

government control to four new central government entities which

are completely separated from local influence. The government’s

case is reliant on anumber of assumptions which, although they

might work on anational scale, do not necessarily hold true for

the Hurunui District.

It is the intention of the Council to present these numbers to you

and get your feedback on the right course of action.

Removal of three waters services and resource management

leaves local government in much depleted state and it is therefore

sensible to have adiscussion about the future of its role. Initial

meetings have been positive, but many in local government are

wary of jobs being handed out by central government with funding

expected to come from rates. Obviously this would not be a

satisfactory outcome and the Council is casting acareful eye over

all of the government’s proposals.

The Hurunui Hotel which stands on the south bank of the Hurunui River was established in1860. The Hotel

is widely known for holding its liquor license since 1869, the longest liquor license tobeheld inNew Zealand.

Tipapa transformed

The Tipapa Woolshed in North

Canterbury was transformed as The Red

Masked Gang Rides Again was staged by

the Greta Valley School.

The ruralatmosphere of Janeand

Stewart Whiteside’s Tipapa Woolshed

provided the ideal environment forthe

play, set in the depths of the Motunau

ranges.

The Red Masked Gang had their

headquarters under Kerry and Kim’s

Fossil Café, where they met and

discussed plans to save the locals from

all sortsofsituations.

One morning the gang received acall

to helpout agroup of Grannies, living on

the edge of the Motunau ranges, who

were being terrorised by evil wolves.

The play used three stages, set up

around the audience in the Woolshed,

which the storyteller moved between to

keep everyone informed about was

happening.

Eachset was lit up using clever

spotlighting, creating areal live drama

experience for the young actors.

Di Dixon, the set designercreated the

forest, the Granny’s house and the Fossil

Café underground headquarters,with

the help of herable crew.

‘‘They say it takes avillage to raisea

child, well tonight we saw it takes a

community to put on aplay,’’ principal,

Anne Batt,said at the end of the

production.

She acknowledged the tremendous

support from the parents and the wider

community in making the production the

huge success.

Aenjoyable part was when the staff,

with aparent roped in to swell the

numbers, wandered in through the

forest dressed as Giant babies, complete

with nappies,bibs and dummies. The

babies had escaped from the Cabbage

Patch, where they sit aroundwaiting for

acall up to boost the school roll.A

squawking Stork, skidded her way in on

ascooter to round up the truant babies.

Playwright Anne Battsays there was a

lot of ad libbing in this scene, andittook

abit of effort to get the play back on

track.

Every child in the school had apart to

play, with many of the indicators set

from the National Curriculum for the

Arts covered in putting on the

production.

Museum redevelopment

Resource consent has been granted for the

proposed$195 million redevelopment of

the Canterbury Museum.

Canterbury Museum TrustBoard chair

David Ayers says the consent is amajor

milestoneinthe Museum’s project to

protect its heritage buildings and bring its

facilities into the 21st first century.

The consentwas granted by

Christchurch City Council last week, after

ahearing on June 9and 10.

“We’vebeen developing our

redevelopment plans since May last year,

whenweasked Cantabrians what they’d

like tosee in aredeveloped Museum,” Mr

Ayers says.

‘‘ Now we can get on with full concept

design of the buildings, whichweexpectto

finishbythe end of the year.”

The Museum already has well over half

the money neededbut faces a$70 million

shortfall.

Mr Ayers says the Museum is in active

discussions with possiblefundersand has

developed abusiness case seeking funding

from the Government.

Adriel House and Rest Home is

greatplace for people to work with

the elderly, andgain qualifications

at the same time.

Owner Mischeal McCormick saysit

is getting harder and harder to get

people to work in the industry.

It is anational issue, but impacted

more on smallcountry homes like

Adriel, wherethere was not ahuge

pool of people to provide stafffor

the home.

Adriel provides holistic care for

thosesuffering frommemory loss,

and is aSpark of LifeCentre of

Mischeal says it is the home’s

pointofdifference from other

with the focus of the programme on

the quality of the connection

between carers, residents, and their

families.

It alsofosters kindness,

compassion, empathy, and respect

for supportive partners.

Gaining qualifications on the job

is free, and Mischeal is aqualified

She saysnoindustry experience is

necessary, and peoplecan learn on

the job,while always working

alongside another staff member.

‘‘It is alot aboutinteracting with

people.

‘‘It is not everyone’s cup­of­tea,

but it canbeavery rewarding

career,’’ says Mischeal.

Alot of in­house training is

provided for staff, particularly

around the Spark of Life philosophy,

and the one­on­one care it promotes.

This helps build good team work,

and promotes good communication,

says Mischeal.

Amberley ... Asecond weighbridge will be installed at the

Rubbish bag cost rise

The cost of arubbish bag in

the Hurunui District has

risen by 30c.

They will now cost $3.30

each, while the per tonne cost

of waste disposal at the

Amberley transfer station has

risen from $255 to $268.

The increases are due to a

nationwide waste levy, set

through the Waste

Minimisation Act 2008,

doubling from $10 per tonne

to $20 per tonne.

Hurunui District Council’s

chief operations officer Dan

Harris says the cost of the

recycling bags has not

changed, however, as away of

incentivising recycling.

“Also via the transfer

stations, arange of items are

accepted for recycling for

free, providing the

acceptance criteria is

followed,” he says.

Meanwhile athree year

programme will see

improvements and changes in

how waste is dealt with in the

district.

Increased volumes of waste

and recycling at Amberley,

Cheviot and Hanmer Springs

transfer stations has

prompted the changes.

Anew transfer station will

be built in Cheviot to provide

more space, improved

facilities and better traffic

flow, while sealing will be

done at the Hanmer Springs

transfer station, along with a

sealed drop­off area for

receiving green waste and

selling mulch.

At Amberley asecond

weighbridge will be installed

to improve traffic flow. A

dedicated recycling area

prior to the weighbridge will

also be developed.

Artist supports Nepal

By SHELLEY TOPP

Rangiora artist Victoria Bennett is

donating the proceeds of her latest

exhibition to the Tansen Mission

Hospital in Nepal.

Victoria decided she wanted to help

the hospital after learning the Nepalese

people had been hit particularly hard by

the Covid­19 pandemic.

The latest World Health Organisation

statistics show there has been 9,834

deaths from Covid­19 in Nepal and there

are 693,109 confirmed cases of the virus

in the country.

Nepal has also been seriously

economically impacted by the pandemic,

due in part to the severe downturn in

tourism, and the United Nations

International Children’s Emergency

Fund (Unicef) figures show that seven

million Nepalese children are now

estimated to be living in poverty in the

country, up from 1.3 million before the

global pandemic.

Victoria said she felt extremely lucky

to be living in New Zealand. ‘‘We have so

much,’’ she said.

Her exhibition, Windhover,opened in

the Rangiora Library’s Chamber Gallery

last Sunday and ends on Thursday,

September 2.

It is atribute to the poetry of Gerard

Manley Hopkins, an English Jesuit Priest

who is considered to be one of the

greatest Victorian­era poets.

‘‘As an illustrator Ihave always wanted

to pay tribute to the sonnets of Gerard

Manley Hopkins, one of the greatest

innovators of the English language and a

man of strong personal faith,’’ she said.

‘‘His poems deconstruct and recreate

language in new and striking forms, and

are the model for this series of paintings

where whole pictures have been cut up

and reassembled to form new images. My

goal was to capture the intricate beauty

of the sonnets,’’ she said.

The pair were dominant in their

performance over the 156km of special

to see we were comfortably second all

day and had agood margin to third

place,’’ Mr Stokes says.

The Stokes were 1minute 37 seconds

faster than the next competitor, but

were 3minutes 56 seconds behind Mr

Paddon.

‘‘We really want to keep trying to

close that gap to Hayden. He is aworld

class driver with so much experience

on the world stage, so is areally good

benchmark for us here in New

Zealand.’’

The Stokes Motorsport team, that is

based between Waikuku, Nelson and

Raglan, has worked tirelessly to make

improvements to the car so it can cope

with the pace of Robbie’s driving.

‘‘We have some very clever people

working on the car and it has finally

paid off,’’ Ms Stokes says.

‘‘The strain and stress it needs to

handle is phenomenal so what our

small team has created is truly

amazing.’’

new men’sshed sooner thanexpected.

The AdviceKiwiMenzshed Pegasus

Woodend is planning to open its brand new

shed in Woodend’s Gladstone Park in

October,after ayear of fundraising.

‘‘We never thought we wouldget theshed

up as quick as this,’’ chairperson SamWatt

says.

‘‘Talking to other men’s sheds, it can take

threeorfour,orevenfive years to raise the

fundstobuild ashed, so to get it donein

one year is justamazing.’’

TreasurerDerrick Walessays the shed

has cost $70,000 to build,which has come

from grants fromAIA Insurance and the

Rata Foundation,aswellasfundraising.

The AIA InsuranceGroup’sbusinessand

community grantwas secured after the

shed was nominated by Joel Mclachlan

from AdviceKiwi,Canterbury.

The new shed has been constructed on

land made available by the Waimakariri

District Council.

The men’s shed was established in

Pegasus in August 2019 and met in an old

classroom in Waikuku for 12 months, giving

the classroom amakeover for the Old

School Collective in lieuofrent.

In Septemberlast year the group moved

intoanold wool shed, owned by Jan de

The group planstocontinue using the

wool shed for storingits materials until it is

able to build anew storage facility at

Targeting domestic timber delivers results

Adecision to develop Jimmy's Creek

Forest, near MotunauinNorthCanterbury,

with the New Zealand domestic market in

mind has been rewarded with favourable

pricing.

The forest is managed by Glenn Moir, the

director of Forest Management Limited

(FML),which was formed in 1990 to provide

forestownerswith expertise in

establishing forests plus tending,

harvestingand marketing the timber from

them in Canterbury, the West Coast, Otago

and Southland.

FML was approachedbythe forest’s

ownersin1997 to takeover the

management of the trees, Mr Moir says.

The owners of the forest, Lynn and David

Stone,Ross Hyndman, and Mikeand Jan

Hodgenhad purchased the blockfrom Dick

CarmichaelatCoringa Farm, near

Motunau.

It hadtwo stands. A24hectare blockof

17­year­old trees which had sporadic

pruning and consisted of morethan 1200

stems perhectare, plus 86hawhich had

been planted in 1993and consisted of 81ha

of radiatapine with the remainder in

macrocarpa spread in small pockets

throughoutthe block.

‘‘Our first task was to thin­to­wastestand

one,’’MrMoir says.

``Due to its age there was ahigh risk of

windthrowsothe decision was madetothin

to ahigher rate per hectare.’’

Duringthe next 10 yearsthe company

prunedand thinned the younger trees to

produce amixed clearwoodand structural

forestdependent on soils and shelter.

Stand one was harvested in 2012and

producedhigh volumes of quality sawlogs

and postwood forthe domestic market.

Since thenithas been replanted and will

have pruning and thinning completed this

comingsummer.

Harvesting of standtwo is now under way

to be completedlater this year.

‘‘Thisforest has also been grown witha

domestic market focus and is producinga

full range of products from high­value

prunedand peeler logs and minimal

amounts of export and low­grade chip

wood,’’ Mr Moir says.

‘‘It is carrying over 600 tonnes per

hectare and generating exceptional

stumpage returns(average value per tonne

acrossall the grades cut)tothe forest

owners.’’

The forestry industryhas been ridinga

high in recenttimes with log prices

reaching highs not seensince the early

1990s,bothoverseas and in New Zealand.

Mr Moir cautionsthat although that

cannotcontinue, the longterm outlookfor

forestry is bright.

‘‘We are now seeingasmall increase in

the estate againonthe back of highcarbon

and timberprices,and the long­term

outlook is very positive for our industry.

‘‘Thiscombination of carbon and timber

is givinggreat returnsback to growersand

we are seeingmore Canterbury

landowners comparing these returnsto

standard farming practices and making the

decision to plant moretrees on their farms.

‘‘Our Canterbury plantingprogramme is

already fully bookedfor 2022 with another

1800habeing converted back to ‘green

gold’.’’

Protecting biodiversity

By SHELLEY TOPP

ATrust, established to protect open

spaces of ecological and cultural

significance has created an increasing

network of more than 4,700 protected

areas in New Zealand.

The Queen Elizabeth II National Trust

was established in 1977 with the aim of

establishing partnerships with private

landowners to protect sites of

significance on their land with

covenants. Under the covenants the

landowner continues to own and manage

the protected land, while the covenant,

and protection of it, remains even when

the property is sold to anew owner.

The trust team works closely with

landowners to support them and form

long­term, trusting and credible

relationships to maintain the

partnerships.

The covenants the partnerships have

established now protect more than

180,000 hectares of private land, ranging

from small backyard patches to huge

areas of high country and they play avital

role in supporting some of New Zealand’s

rarest and most endangered biodiversity

and ecosystems.

With almost 70 percent of New Zealand

land in private ownership, protecting

biodiversity and heritage on this land is

critical to reversing the decline of

indigenous biodiversity and preserving

our history.

The independent charitable Trust is

based in Wellington but has 27 regional

representatives nationwide, including

Miles Giller in North Canterbury.

Miles has been the QEII Trust’s

representative for North Canterbury

since 2001 and is often accompanied on

his field work by his wife Gillian.

Miles has aparticular interest in the

many native small­leaved shrubs that are

characteristic of the eastern South

Island area.

These plants are also afeature in the

couple’s large, ecologically­based native

garden at their home, near Rangiora.

More than 150 covenants have been

established on private land in Miles’s

North Canterbury area since 1977,

including one now part­owned by Miles

and Gillian.

‘‘The secret to protecting most

remnants of native flora and fauna lies in

maintaining good pest and weed

control,’’ Miles says.

The couple get alot of satisfaction from

helping people achieve that on their land

and having ashare in their own covenant

provides the couple with an opportunity

to put into practice what they promote.

‘‘Seeing aflock of 25 kereru feeding in

akahikatea tree last autumn was fitting

reward for all the covenant part owners,’’

Miles says.

Kaiapoi claims NC Division 1rugby title

RUGBY

By LINDSAY KERR

Athree­yearwait endedfor

Kaiapoi rugby last Saturday

when its Division 1team edged

out Saracens 19­16towin this

season’s Luisetti SeedsNorth

Canterbury senior grand final.

The victory was Kaiapoi’s first

grand final title since its six point

win over Oxfordin2010.

Two agonising losses in the last

two grandfinalsweighed on the

minds of the Kaiapoi coaching

staff Matt Newton and Simon

Gunn, along withthe players who

remained, as they prepared for

the latest edition.

This was compounded by the

reality thatSaracens had beaten

it twice thisseason.

‘‘It was very heartening and

was mademore so by the two

lossestothem. Iamnot sure what

the reaction might of have been

had we lostagain,’’said Newton.

‘‘Playingathome certainly

helpedand with Saracens having

beatenushere, that really

helpedtostiffen our resolve and

add an edge,’’ he said.

Playedinfront of alarge crowd

on their home ground,Kaiapoi

was slowout of the starting

blocks.

It attacked first, but amissed

handy penalty shot in the

opening minutes appeared

ominous, especially when

Saracens full back HarryMurray

ran 20 metres, throughtwo would

be tacklers, to scorefive minutes

later.

In the meantime Kaiapoi

kicker TaineJacob­Lawson

found his confidence kicking a

penalty. RickyAllinadded to

Saracenstotal with apenalty,

only for Jacob­Lawson tokick his

second shot eight minutes before

the break.

In the moments before the

break Kaiapoi began to apply

pressureand if things had looked

ominous for them earlyon, the

table had started to turn.

Allin extended Saracens’lead

to 16­9 with two penalties in the

opening minutes of the second

Title shared in Division 2final

RUGBY

By PETER WILLIAMS

The very best of North

Canterbury rugby was on

display at Kaiapoi Park on

Saturday.

Starting with two excellent

exhibition games at under­12

and under­13 level and

finishing with two keenly

contested finals at Division 2

and Division 1level. There was

plenty of support for all teams.

Titleshared

Anyone who was in Kaikoura

on Saturday afternoon may

have noticed the town was

strangely quiet, as it seemed as

though half the town was on the

sideline at Kaiapoi (some

arriving by helicopter) to

support their Division 2side.

The Division 2final was a

pulsating one, ending in the title

being shared.

Played as acurtain raiser, It

set the scene perfectlyfor the

Division 1final, with avery

closely­contested battle

between the northern

neighbours. Kaikoura had its

nose in front 12­10 at half­time,

and as the match entered injury

time it had stretched its lead to

29­22.

But it was Glenmark­Cheviot

which finished the stronger

with club stalwart Andrew

Zuppicich bullocking his way

over next to the upright. Harry

Fitzpatrickmade no mistake

with the pressure kick, and with

no provision for extra time in

grand finals, the title was

shared.

Scoreboard:Kaikoura 29 (Stu

Giles 1, Dylan Gueganton 1,

Nathan Ah Kee 1, Patrick Numa

1tries, Bryn Williams 3

conversions and apenalty) drew

with Glenmark­Cheviot 29 (Sake

Raitubei 2, Will Inch 2and

Andrew Zuppicich 1tries,

Harry Fitzpatrick 2

conversions.)

Plate finaldivision 1

History almost repeated itself

in the match between Ashley

and Glenmark­Cheviot. When

these teams last met in the

round­robin, Glenmark Cheviot

built acommanding first half

Young stars ... Reuben Wastney (9, front) and his Saracens

lead, only for Ashley to storm

over the top of them in the

second half and claim victory.

On Saturday Glenmark­

Cheviot led 19­7 at half­time.

Ashleyagain showed its

resilience to level at 19­all, but

this time Glenmark­Cheviot had

the last say when Brook

Retallick landed amatchwinning

penalty.

the second half, scoring a

Colts

Ashley put the seal on an

excellent season, having

already won the Combined

Country Colts title, beating

Glenmark­Cheviot convincingly.

Winger Caleb Hazeldine

impressedwith his speed while

captain Nicholas Sim got

through alot of work at lock.

With players like those in this

team about to come through to

the open grades, it bodes very

well for the future for the

Ashley club.

Flood­affected farmersinthe South Island

advice and wellbeing support, MPI rural

communitiesand farmingsupport director

Nick Story says.

MPI animal health and welfare director

with silt can cause animal health issues

and farmers with concerns about the

health of their animals should seek advice

Stockwater Race Bylaw Under Review

The Council is reviewing its 2019 Stockwater Race

Bylawandisasking Waimakaririresidents and water

race users for feedback on proposed changes.

Stockwater portfolio holder Councillor Sandra Stewart

says that she is really keen to hear from both

residentsand stockwaterusers to makesurethe

Council is on the right track.

“We want to hear if any amendments are necessary

before the final bylaw is adopted later this year.”

“I’m particularly interested inrace users and

residents’ views on the environmental benefits of

the race network which through leakage, recharge

our underground aquifers and dilute nitrate

groundwater pollution” CrStewart said.

“Whether these benefits should be funded through a

district-wide environmental rate is proposed to be

addressed in the future once the outcome ofthe

Government’s Three Waters Reform is known.”

“I look forward to hearing our community’s views

on our approach to maintaining the water race

system” she said.

The races provide stockwater to 1,629 properties

which pay an annual rate to cover management

of the network. The races are almost 830km in

length and cover over 42,000 hectares through the

Waimakariri District.

Thebylaw details the rulesprotectingthewater race

network,and is an importanttooltohelp thecouncil

and itscontractorsmake decisionswhile maintaining

the supply of stockwater to users of the scheme.

Councillors adopted the Stockwater Race Bylaw in

2019 and undertook to carry out afurther review

within two years, giving users and residents an

opportunity for comment.

To give feedback onthe dra bylaw, visit

waimakariri.govt.nz/letstalk before 5pm,

In Genesis, the first book of the Bible, it

was prophesied that there would come

a descendant of Adam and Eve, who

through willing obedience to his Father’s

commandment ,would destroy the power

of sin through his death. This would open

the way for forgiveness of sins, to be

extended to those who acknowledge and

forsake them.
