Agame changer for the community

By DAVID HILL

With the Mainpower Stadium now open

for business, the North CanterburySport

and Recreation Trustislookingahead to

its next big project.

Nearly 4000 people braved wintry

conditions to attend Sunday’s official

opening.

Afteraccepting the keys to the brand

new $28 million, 6000 squaremetremultiuse

facility on Coldstream Road from

WaimakaririMayor Dan Gordon,trust

chairperson Don Robertson revealed

plansfor anew stadium in Kaiapoi.

In his address, Mr Robertson said the

trust was hoping to partner with the

counciltobuild anew sports facility in the

former red zone, whichwould include

North Canterbury’s main indoorcricket

centre.

‘‘Ifyou’refrom Kaiapoi, we encourage

you to talktoyour local councillors and let

themknow you wantthem to support it,’’

he told the crowd.

Six Olympians at the Tokyo Olympic

Games had comethrough the trust’s

programmes and scholarships andMr

Robertsonwas confident the new

MainPower Stadium wouldproduceanew

generation of sports stars. ‘‘This is agame

changer for the community,it’s state of the

art and it’s cutting edge technology.’’

Mr Gordon recalledthe journey which

led to Sunday’s officialopening was along

one.

‘‘I remember thisbeing discussed when

Ifirst came on to council in 2004. It’s taken

along time, but as it cost $28 million, every

detail had to be thoroughly scrutinised

and eventslike the earthquakes came

alongand we had to focus on otherthings.

‘‘Good things taketime.’’

He recalled it was literally ‘‘life and

death’’ around the counciltable, with Cr

Robbie Brine discharging himself from

hospital after major surgery to ensure the

stadium vote got across the line.

North Canterbury Sportand Recreation

Trust chief executive Michael Sharpesaid

the stadium will cater to all ages.‘‘It’s

going to be areal hub from 2­year­olds to

over­90­year­olds,not only in sportfrom

grassroots to nationalsportspeople

through to fitnessand wellbeingand

No appeal to quarry decision

By SHELLEY TOPP

Taggart Earthmoving Ltd is not appealing

adecisionbytwo independent

commissioners to denythe companya

resourceconsenttodevelopaquarry at

RangioraRacecourse.

Taggart CEO PaulTaggart saysthe

commissioners’decision was

disappointing forthe companybut they

decided nottoappeal the ruling dueto

legaladvice and thepotential high­costof

an appealinthe EnvironmentCourt.

‘‘We havealready spent alot of money

on thisprojectbut that is therisk you

take,’’ he says.

‘‘We are now assessing ouroptions and

have some toughdecisions to make about

thefuture of ouroperation in Rangiora,

whichwill dependonwhether we can

find an alternative source of gravel.’’

Thecompany was assessing other

possiblegravel extraction siteswithin

Waimakariri but he is unwilling to say at

this stagewhere they are.

Mr Taggart says it wasapopular

misconceptionthatrecent floodingin

Waimakariri had deposited large

quantities of gravelinthe Ashley­

Rakahuriand Waimakariri rivers.

‘‘Although it appears that there are now

largedeposits of gravel in the bedsofthe

Waimakaririand Ashleyrivers postthe

recentfloods, initial topographical

surveys indicatethat the increased

volume of gravelavailable for extraction

is minimal,’’hesays.

‘‘We haverecently surveyedasectionof

compared the surveyvolumes that we

calculated pre­flood andthe netincrease

in availablegravel is insignificantwhen

However,the company onlysurveyeda

small section of therivertoget an

indication of the effect of the floods.ECan

is scheduled to do afull river surveynext

month.

‘‘Thismay show thereismore gravel

The independentcommissioners, Paul

Rogers andJohn Iseli, deniedTaggart

Deputy Presidentofthe No Rangiora

delighted that TaggartEarthmovingLtd

haschosen nottoappeal the decision.

Thepresident of theRangiora Harness

said the clubneeded theincome expected

to makeaboutthe commissioners’

decision to deny aresource consentfor it

or Taggart’sdecision not to appealthat

Snow closes roads in North Canterbury

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Motoristsbore the brunt of North

Canterbury’s snowfall on Sunday.

The Leader Road linking Waiauand

State Highway One,The InlandRoad

linking Waiau andKaikoura, and the

Clarence Valley Road, Hanmer Springs,

were closed by heavy snow,and remained

closedonMonday.

The Lewis, and Arthurs Passes were

both closed and remained closed until late

Mondayafternoon, leaving StateHighway

One, on the eastcoast,the only route open

between Christchurch and Picton/Nelson

for muchofSundayand Monday.

At the Hundalee Hills, on State Highway

One, 40km south of Kaikoura, traffic was

brought to ahalt after two trucks jackknifednear

the bottom of the southern

side of the winding and hilly section of

highway.

About 5cm of snow had fallen by 2.40pm

when the police werenotifiedofthe

incident which forced around 30 trucks,

many with key freight deliveries on board,

and cars to queue till lateSundaynight.

Some motorist did elect to turn back.

This put accommodation at apremium

in Cheviot andKaikoura as people

decided to stay the night,instead of

queuing in the freezing cold conditions,

with snow continuing to fall.

It took until 11pm to clearthe backlog,

with crewsfrom Waka Kotahi/ NZ

Transport Agencytaking cars in convoy

through asingle lane.

‘‘Given the route was the sole remaining

highway north of Christchurch still open

in the snow,itwas officially keptopenon

Sundaydespite theconsiderableholdups,’’aspokespersonsaid.

All thequeued cars, barfour or five

parkednear the top,were abletodoaUturnand

go back the way they came. An

reasons many decided to wait.

‘‘Weunderstandthe highway was not

officially closed so they may well have

assumed the delay wouldbeshorter than

it turned out to be.

‘‘Weapologise to people who have

enduredfreezingtemperatures and we

willhaveafull debrief on this.’’

Crews helped those who ran out of gas.

In the Hurunui District many travellers

sought refugeatCheviot and Mt Lyford

Lodge overnight because of the Hundalee

hold­up.

Dan Harris, chiefoperations officer,

saidthe accommodating local community

keptpeoplesafe and warm, withmore

accommodation available if it was needed.

He says farmerswere well prepared for

the cold snap, but the snow will add to

ongoing feed issues thanks to drought and

the May flood.

On Monday the council reported some

drivers were ignoring the Road Closed

sign at Leader Road,and carrying on

through. ‘‘There are no road crews

working on this road, yet,due to weather

conditions, and if you haveanaccident

after you'vegone pastthis sign, you are not

insured,’’ acouncilspokesperson said. It

was hoped all affected roadswould be

open by Tuesday.

The Oxford Area School was closed on

Mondaydue to thesnow, but there were no

roading problems in the Waimakariri

District caused by the snow. The Lees

are carriedout following major damage

No staffing woes for NC

hospitality providers

By SHELLEY TOPP

Whilemany cafe and restaurant

owners nationwide say they are

facing staffing shortages, North

Canterbury seems to be bucking

that trend.

More than 2000 restaurants

and cafes nationwide tookpart

in the Restaurant Association of

New Zealand’sLights Out

campaignlast month to

highlight the staffing crisis and

get the Government to allow

urgent borderexemptions for

overseas workersseeking

hospitality workinNew

Zealand.

However, most North

Canterbury cafeand restaurant

owners contacted said they did

not haveproblems retaining or

recruiting staff.

Kaiapoi’s Coffee Culture coownerDean

Peterssaid being

part of abig franchisegroup

helped with staffing

recruitment.

‘‘We don’t have any trouble

finding staff.’’

Oxford's Cafe 51 chef/manager

Lititia Buckman had expected

difficulties recruiting staff after

the Covid­19 lockdown but that

had not occurred.

‘‘Hospitality may not be the

best payingjob to start with but

it is agreat careerchoice,

particularly for young people

because it teaches you so many

life skills and can take you

anywhereyou want to go,’’ she

said.

Rangiora’s Fools of Desire

Cafe co­owner Karl Horwarth

said they did not have problems

recruiting staff either,with

people regularlycallingatthe

cafe seeking hospitality work.

Whileatthe Red PostCafe in

Culverden, co­owner Carolyn

Allison said her full­time staff

had been at the cafe for along

time and she was ‘‘ fortunateto

be able to hire university

students,home for the holidays

and looking for work,tohelp out

during the busy summer

months.’’

In HanmerSprings, the

PowerhouseCafe and

Restaurant owner Mary

Holloway, who is also aHurunui

Districtcouncillor, said

hospitality was hard work,but

she did not have any problems

hiring or retainingstaff.

``If you respect your staff, pay

them welland treatthem well,

they will stay,’’ she said.

In Kaikoura, Why Not Cafe coownerPeter

Matts employs four

localwomen full­time,but hires

backpackersvisiting New

Zealand seeking seasonal work

to help out during the busier

summer months.

However, he is concerned he

may not be able to do thatthis

summer withNew Zealand’s

borders still likely to be closed

to internationaltravellers.

``Nothavingany

internationalsisabig loss.''

WhileinRangiora, Amy Grice,

part­owner of The Plough Hotel

and WinnieBagoes often has

difficultyrecruiting

experienced staff.

‘‘We are really luckytohave

an awesome corebase of fulltime

staff,but struggle to hire

new people with experience,’’

she said.

‘‘Having said that we recently

Lifestyle blocks

miss funding

By DAVID HILL

Waimakariri Mayor Dan

Gordon is not giving up the

fighttosupport the region’s

lifestylers, in the wakeofthe

recent flood event.

Mr Gordon sayshehas

received confirmation from his

enquiry to the Prime Minister’s

office, that lifestyle blockshave

not beenincluded in the

Ministry for Primary

Industries’ flood relief

package.

He met with Prime Minister

Jacinda Ardern whileshe was

in Canterbury to meetwith the

region’s Mayorsinthe weeks

following the May 31 flood.

After learning Waimakariri

had the mostlifestyle blocks in

the country, Ms Ardern agreed

to lookinto the matter.

Anumber of lifestyle blocks

suffered considerable damage

in the flood, but many

insurance policiesdonot cover

land damage.

Lifestyle properties do not

meet the criteria for funding in

MPI’s relief package.

Funding has beenmade

available to theMayoralRelief

Fund, but Mr Gordon says this

is limited.

For now aid from the

Mayoral ReliefFund will be

dispersed between lifestyle

block ownersinneed of

support, while the council

gathers more data to present to

the Prime Minister in the hope

the matter can be

reconsidered.

‘‘I have been talking to

lifestylersabout their issues, so

we can go back to the Prime

Minister,’’ Mr Gordon says.

‘‘We’reattempting to quantify

the difference between

insurance and what is

uninsured so we can make

make asubmission to the

government.

‘‘In the meantime, we have

some up withamodelofhow

we are going to disperse it

(Mayoral Fund),but it willbeto

lifestylerswho have missedout

on other funding.’’

The council’s efforts to

supportlifestylershave been

aided by having two fencing

contractors who have

negotiatedrates with the

council, whichhave been

passed on to lifestyle block

owners.

CanterburyRuralAdvisory

Group chairperson Winton

Dalley sayspartofthe problem

stems fromauthorities

struggling to distinguish

betweenproperties which are

purely lifestyle blocksand

‘‘smallproductive units’’.

Income assessmenthad been

looked at, butwas not

necessarily atrue measureof

what was goingon. ‘‘They’ve

also triedlooking at thesize of

theproperties, but that doesn’t

take into consideration the

activity which is taking place,

so it’s areal issue.’’

Urgent funding needed

in mental health arena

Mental health is not only about the

treatmentofmental illness but also the

promotionofmental wellbeing.

Over the course of our liveswewill all

have good and bad mental health.

No­one is immune.

Last week Ijoined rural mental health

advocates GraceCurtis (CoolChange NZ)

and Jason Herrick (Ag Proud)tospeak to

over 800 people in Auckland.

We tookthe voices of rural mental

health to our largesturban areatocall on

the government to urgently fundlife­saving

mental health and suicide prevention

programsinour ruralcommunities.

We’vebeen hearing loud and clear that

our ruralcommunities are doingittough,

with increasing challenges and changing

regulations taking their tollonfarmers and

growers.

Iwas proud to stand alongside our local

farmers at the Groundswell protestin

Rangiora and Kaiapoi recently. They are

an integral part of our community and it

was greattosee so many residents out in

support of them too.

Ijoined protestorganiser Andrew

Mehrtensinhis ute to hear first­hand the

impacts on farmers’ wellbeing from the

uncertainty and stress of excessive

governmentregulation,with more

proposed changesinevitably creating even

more anxiety.

One of the more controversial rule

changes is the identificationofSignificant

Natural Areas, or SNAs, on rural

properties.

On avisit to afarm near Oxford last

monthIlearned the extent of what this

would mean for alandowner.

Essentially, theywould not be abletodo

anything to largeswathes of theirown

land, someofwhich has beenhanded

down throughmany generations.

Farmers knowtheir land and how to

manageit, and this is areal concernfor

many in theWaimakariri.

On amore positive note,itwas

inspirational to meet Oxford's Daisy

Gardiner, who combines her passion for

flowers withapassion for our Oxford

community.

Daisy is mum to two young children and

has set up athriving home business,

Daisy's Wedding Flowers, supporting local

growers and keeping costs down to make

flowers affordable to our elderly and

community organisations.

Daisy is agreat example of innovation

and creativity –she has made her business

work around her life and is providinga

great local service too.

It was also great to celebrate success for

Kaiapoi dairy owner Nilesh Vallabh and

his familywho havebeen part of our

community for more thantwo decades.

Nileshwas having difficulty in getting a

Lotto licencefor his shop even though

there was one lessoutlet in townafter

Take Note closed down. Iwas glad to be

able to help by organising aLotto

representativetocome downfrom

Auckland to visit Nilesh and myselfinhis

Kaiapoi shop. Ourfarmers, along with

individualslikeDaisy and Nilesh, are the

backbone of our community, and Iama

fierceadvocate for all residentswhen they

need someonetofight in their corner.

Groundswell plan further action

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Groundswell is planningfurther action if it

doesn’t get aGovernmentresponseby

August16toits protestover unworkable

regulations.

It has been six weeks since

Groundswell’s Howl of aProtest galvanized

around60,000 peoplethroughoutthe

country to roll into town in their tractors,

trucks, utes and on foottosupport

Groundswell’s concernsaround two key

piecesoflegislation—freshwater and

indigenous biodiversity/significant natural

areas (SNAs).

In recent days it has added Three

WatersReforms to its dossier because of

increasingconcerns among councils..

Spokesperson Bryce McKenzie says

many councils have expressedconcerns

about the lackofinformationand

meaningfulconsultation,and the hastein

which the Government are pushing the

reforms through.

“This is shaping up as ahighly divisive

issue in localgovernment, with some

councilsstrongly in support and many

othersopposedorexpressing

reservations”, says Mr McKenzie.

“Farmers are not the onlyones being

subject to aone size fitsall, we know best,

attitude from the government.”

Groundswell pledges to continueits

campaign until muchneeded changes to

unworkableregulations happens.

The organisation,which has its roots in

Southland,isnow well established on the

West Coast,and has beenjoinedbythe

North Canterbury­basedRural Advocacy

Network throughanalliancewith

Groundswell.

It has published an Open Letter to the

‘‘People of New Zealand’’reiterating its

concerns.

‘Groundswell NZ’s is not callingfor a

halt in progressaddressing our

environmental issues. We believeall New

High Street display. .. Atractor convoy rolling through Rangiora’s central business district

Zealanders needtojoin in the journey of

environmental custodianship.

‘‘Leaders of Groundswell NZ are at the

forefrontofthe environmental effortin

New Zealand, clear evidence that we are

welland trulyonboard.

‘‘Weare not opposed to all regulation as

claimed by some Government ministers.

‘‘All humanactivities, including

farming, havenegativeimpactsonthe

environment and regulationsare part and

parcel of every day life.

‘‘Our oppositionisto unworkable

regulations –particularly those that are

impractical, costprohibitive, penalise

environmentally progressive landowners

or have detrimentaloutcomesfor the

environment.Hence our objection to the

two key piecesoflegislation; freshwater

and indigenousbiodiversity/SNAs,’’ it says

in the openletter.

Groundswell saysits alternative

solutions received scantcoverageinthe

media, and it would continuetohighlight

them.

‘‘We support acatchment approachto

freshwater whereregional councils have

the autonomytowork with their

communities in prioritising efforts to

thosecatchments most in needofaction.

‘‘Indigenous biodiversity policies must

not continue to penalise conservation

minded landowners and devalue their

properties.

‘‘We seekanapproach that turnsnatural

areasonprivate landinto an asset,

supports those proactive in conservation

and empowers everyone to takebetter

care of our environment.

‘‘Enough is enough.’’

Agroup of CharlesUpham Retirement

pest traps swept awayduringflooding

of the Ashley/Rakahuri River.

Lynn Andrews and fellow village

residents havebuilt 76 wooden

housings for the metal pest traps laid

along the braided river to catch

predators endangering rarebirdlife.

They handed over the second batch

of 38 traphousings to the Ashley

Rakahuri RivercareGroup(ARRG)

recently.

ARRG worksinconjunctionwith

other groupsincludingthe

Department of Conservation(DoC)to

protect thebraidedriver­based birds.

The traps help make the Ashley

River asafe place for blackbilled

gulls,banded dotterels,

oystercatchers. The work is also to

help species like black fronted terns,

and wrybillsurvive in whatcan be a

tough environment.

ARRG trappingco­ordinator Peter

200 traps are located on the berms of

the riverhad been washedaway by the

late May, earlyJune flooding. The

traps were takendown riverand out to

sea.

“The river ran at 150 cusecs… the

same rate by the way as the Ashburton

River,” Peter said.

“Of our about 450 traps, we lost about

aquarter of them.’’

Motorists

urged to

take care

Motorists are beingwarned to take

care on icy roads.

Recent snow and the threat of

some severe frosts are making the

roads treacherousinsome areas.

Road safety co­ordinator at the

Hurunui District Council, Dean

Eades urges motorists to drive to the

conditions, avoid sudden braking or

sharp turning movements, and

accelerate and brake gently and

smoothly.

‘‘And remember to keep asafe

travelling distance, as it takes longer

to stop on slippery roads.’’

He also says landowners have a

responsibility to maintain their

current hedges and shelterbelts,

ensure they don’t protrude on to the

road space, and to choose carefully

where they plant new ones.

Mr Eade says addressing the issue

of trees shading roads at the time of

planting could saveextra work in the

long term.

No payrise for Mayor Dan

Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon has been

overlooked for apayrise in the latest

RemunerationAuthority

recommendations.

WhileDeputy MayorNeville Atkinson

and the other councillors will receive small

pay increases,MrGordon’s salary will

remain at $137,500 for the next 12 months.

The new payrises wereapproved at last

week’s Waimakariri District Council

meeting and will alsosee community board

members receivesmallincreases.

Ratesofpay for elected members are set

each year by the RemunerationAuthority.

Remunerationwas delayed lastyeardue

to the Covid­19 pandemic with no payrise

for the 2019/20 financialyear, althoughthe

Mayor’s salary was trimmed by 10 percent

for six months. While the economy has

proven to be moreresilientthan predicted,

the Remuneration Authority has taken‘‘a

Dan Gordon

conservative approach’’indetermining

localgovernment members’ rates of pay for

the 2021/22year.

Council opts to retain wards

The Waimakariri District Council has

opted for the statusquo for next year’s

local body elections.

Councillors voted lastweek to

recommend the existing threeward,

four communityboardstructure for the

2022 and 2025 local body elections, as

part of the council’ssix yearly

representation review.

Aside from minor boundary changes,

due to changes in population, the

council has opted for threewards with

new names ­Coastal (Kaiapoi­

Woodend), Central(Rangiora­Ashley)

and Western(Oxford­Ohoka).

The Coastal and Centralwardswill

each have elected four councillors,

while the Western ward willhave two.

There will continue to be four

community boards,with the Coastal

ward being split into the Kaiapoi­

Tuahiwi and Woodend­Sefton

CommunityBoards, with eachboard

having five elected members and two

appointedcouncillors.

Arecommended change to the existing

structure will see six memberselected

from the Rangiora subdivisionand two

from the Ashley subdivision elected to

the Rangiora­Ashley Community Board,

alongside the four Central ward

councillors.

This change is due to population

changes,Mayor Dan Gordonsays.

Threememberseach will be elected

from the Ohoka­Swannanoa and the

Oxford sub­divisions to the Oxford­

OhokaCommunity Board, along with the

two Western ward councillors.

The recommendations have gone for

consultation, with submissions closing

on September27.

Apublic hearingisscheduled for

October 12.

Stockwater review

The Waimakariri District Council is

reviewing its stockwater race bylaw.

Residents and water race users are

being asked to give feedback on proposed

changes to the 2019 Stockwater Race

Bylaw.

Stockwater portfolio holder Cr Sandra

Stewart says she is really keen to hear

the feedback to ensure the council is on

the right track.

‘‘We want to hear if any amendments

are necessary before the final bylaw is

adopted later this year,’’ she says.

‘‘I’m particularly interested in race

users and residents’ views on the

environmental benefits of the race

network which through leakage,

recharge our underground aquifers and

dilute nitrate groundwater pollution.

‘‘Whether these benefits should be

funded through adistrict­wide

environmental rate is proposed to be

addressed in the future once the outcome

of the 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.’’

The races provide stockwater to 1629

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

district.

The bylaw details the rules protecting

the water race network, and is an

important tool to help the council and its

contractors make decisions while

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.

The review looks broad topics

including works in private property, road

Stockwater ... The Waimakariri District

Council is seeking feed back on its

stockwater bylaw.

PHOTO: FILE

reserve race maintenance, managed

aquifer recharge, environmental

benefits, ponds, fencing of water races

and biosecurity and contamination risks

The existing bylaw requires

landowners to maintain any portion of

stockwater race on or adjacent to their

property boundary if it is within the road

reserve.

The 2021 review does not propose any

changes to this responsibility and the

council wants to check in with the

community to see if they agree with this

approach.

The council is not proposing to fund

the environmental benefit of the water

race system at this stage.

It is proposed that this will be

addressed as part of the 3Waters Rating

Review in 2023.

Letters will be sent to each property on

the race network, and feedback on the

proposed bylaw closes on September 7.

Once feedback has been collected, staff

will report to the council at the

November meeting.

Land use concerns raised

North Canterbury Fish &Game has

expressed concerns at the findings in a

major Environment Canterbury (ECan)

report on land use intensification in the

Canterburyhigh country.

ECan scientists found 6847 hectares in

the Waimakariri, Rakaia, Hakatere/

Ashburton,and Rangitatariver catchments

had been developedinthe 1990­2019

period, whichhas been linked to

deteriorating water quality in high country

lakes and spring­fed streams.

‘‘The reportputs on paper what the

public has witnessed in the high country for

some time,’’chiefexecutive Rasmus

Gabrielsson says.‘‘Anyonewho has spent

time in the high country has seen the

intensification,shifting from alandscape

dominated by the browns and greys of

tussock and shrubland to the cultivated

greenpasture and fodder crops more

associated with the Canterbury Plains.’’

ECan’s report links intensive

development of Canterbury’s lowland

plainswith aprogressive loss of aquatic

habitatand values to facilitate agricultural

efficiency. ‘‘Land­use intensification in the

high country,ifunregulated,islikely to

resultinsimilaroutcomes.’’ An ECan

reportlast year showedlakes such as

Pearson and Grasmere had decliningwater

quality trends, Mr Gabrielsson says.

Family firm navigates 150 years

Retailing has run through the veins of

the Blackwell family for six generations.

Next month the family celebrates a

milestone —150 years of retailing in

Kaiapoi.

Blackwells Department Store is a

Kaiapoi landmark built on asolid

foundation of service to the community,

looking after the needs of customers and

adapting to their requirements.

Today it is managed by Andrew and

Michael Blackwell, the fifth generation

to take the helm, with the sixth

generation lending ahand on the floor.

Andrew Blackwell told those gathered

for the launch of Pattern of Years in

December 2018, abook penned by Colin

Amodeo chronicling the colourful

history of the firm, that the family liked

being retailers.

‘‘We’re still here happily trading in

this great little town.’’

The store, which offers aquaint,

diverse and practical retail experience,

began life as the Railway Store, opening

in 1871.

The general store was opened by

George Henry Blackwell to capitalise on

the boost in trade expected with the

extension of the railway line to the river

town.

After trading for two years, the store

moved to the corner of Black and Hilton

streets, before moving to its present

location on the corner of Williams Street

and Raven Quay.

Joseph Henry Blackwell was the

second generation of the family to run

the business, joining in 1888 and

working in the store for 77 years, before

retiring in 1956.

In the early 1900s, new departments

were added as the business grew,

including drapery, clothing, bakery, and

dressmaking.

Like his father, Joseph Blackwell was

heavily involved in community affairs,

Afamily affair ... HH(Hugh) Blackwell, the third generation to take the helm at the family

business (left), JHBlackwelll, the second generation and David Blackwell the fourth

generation outside the Blackwell’s Family Shopping Centre and Supermarket. PHOTO: SUPPLIED

including serving 11 years as Kaiapoi

Mayor.

In 1914 Henry Hugh Blackwell joined

the family business, after astint with

Ballantynes, until World War 1broke out

and the young Henry headed off to serve,

eventually serving as aRoyal Flying

Corp pilot in France.

He returned to Kaiapoi in 1919, and

eventually joined his father as adirector

in the family business.

Department Store in Christchurch.

During his time, Blackwellsadded and

built up the furnishing and furniture

sections.

After taking directorship from his

father Hugh, David ‘‘continued the

acumen and sincerity which has guided

the flagship for so long’’, Andrew

Blackwell says.

David Blackwell was actively involved

in the business for 71 yearsand handed

over the reigns tohis sons Andrew and

Michael Blackwell in 1993, although he

continued to take akeen interest in the

family business. He died in September,

2019, aged93.

Over the decades, Blackwells has

survived numerous challenges including

world wars, depressions, economic

downturn and floods.

George Blackwell would have never

expected the Canterbury earthquake of

2010 to all but demolish the store or

expected in 2020 apandemic would

close the store for an extended period

for the first time in 149 years.

Over the years Blackwellshas stayed

true to its traditional values of customer

service.

Blackwellscontinues to offer

customer accounts for convenience as it

did from the beginning.

remaining true to its roots.

It will continue to have strong

supportinglocal community groups,

business association and service

groups,and community fundraising

initiatives.

Saturday trading was introduced in

1986, with the storeopening from 9.30am

to 12.30pm, and now until 4pm.

Thiswas amajor change back in the

1980s, so David Blackwell’s wifeJean

made freshscones for morning tea every

Saturday. MrsBlackwell’s famous

cheese scones were astaff favourite.

Sunday trading started when the store

reopened after the 2010 earthquakes.

Home delivery has always beenpart of

Blackwells’ customer service, from

horse andcart in the early days to

motorbike andsidecar, motor vehicle

and now avan for bigger purchases.

Personal customer serviceby

knowledgeable and long› serving staff is

another key to success, with one present

staff member having worked for the

family for more than 30 years.

Blackwells buyers constantly review

international trends and the needs of the

local North Canterbury market, which

has grown immenselyinthe past decade.

‘‘Six generations of the one family had

kept it going through fire, flood,

economic fluctuation and earthquake,’’

Colin Omodeo said.

It was, he said, quite arecord in its

own right, especially in the face of

corporate raiders and the development

of shopping malls,aswell as Farmers in

Rangiora.

‘‘You don’t often meet that kind of

record.’’

BLACKWELLS CELEBRATING 150 YEARS

North Canterbury News, August 12, 2021

Down through the generations

Neill Price’sfamily has had an account

with Blackwells Department Store for

more than 80 years.

The Kaiapoi identity has known the

Blackwellfamily for as long as he can

remember and has been shoppinginthe

store since he was ayoungster.

‘‘And Iprobably went there in the pram

not knowing Iwas there.’’

The family’s legacy has been one of

service to thecommunity and setting a

high standard for presentation, Mr Price

says.

‘‘Theywere always immaculately

dressed in suits and the staff were always

well dressed andpresented themselves

immaculately.

‘‘Theyalways did that little bit extra that

afamily business can do, as opposed to a

trading conglomerate.’’

Mr Pricewell remembers Joseph

Blackwell from his childhood.

‘‘If evertherewas aman that impressed

me as akid, it wasJ.H. Blackwell. He used

to walkacross thebridge and he usedto

stand up straightand was always

immaculately dressed.’’

DeputyMayor Neville Atkinsonhas

been shoppingatBlackwells since he was

ayoungster.

‘‘They’ve always been there. It’s

something you probably takefor granted.

Blackwellsisknownfor the old­fashioned

style in whichthe shopwas runbefore the

earthquake. Thingslike the docket books

and theold­fashioned till, which is still

there.Who does that?’’

The Blackwellfamily havealways been

generousand loyal to Kaiapoi, he says.

‘‘They’re never selfish when thinking of

the town and betteringtheir business, they

always consider how it willwork for the

town.’’

‘‘It’s an amazing achievement. New

quickly afterthe September 2010

earthquake is testamenttothe family’s

resilience, Mrs Watsonsays.

Kaiapoi Promotions Association

chairperson Martin Pinkhamsays ‘‘if it

wasn’t for Blackwells, Kaiapoi wouldn’t be

Kaiapoi’’.‘‘You just have to admire the

courage they had after the earthquake.’’

Mr Pinkhamhas lived in Kaiapoi since

1968and sayshis mother once worked

upstairsinthe Blackwellsbuilding, which

at the time was leased out to ashirt

factory.

‘‘It wasareal institution then and it is

now and alot of people come out to

Kaiapoi to shop at Blackwells. It’s a

Aman of vision and fortitude

David Blackwellenvisaged Kaiapoi

becomingadestination once its main

centre had amakeover following the

2010­2011 Canterbury earthquakes.

His visionhas become areality.

Mr Blackwell,who died on September

20, 2019, lived in Kaiapoi all his life and

spent 47 years running the family­owned,

Blackwell’s Department Store.

He championed the courage and

fortitudeofthe town’speople,and the

Waimakariri District Council after the

quakes,for ensuringnew life was breathed

intoretailing in the riverside town.

Thisinturn wouldbringpeople to the

riversidetown to enjoyits facilities, the

shopping, the river and the walkways,he

toldthe NorthCanterbury News in June,

2016.

The devastation left behindafter the

September 4, 2010 earthquake was new to

everyone.

‘‘Itwas largely anew experience.

‘‘Ithad neverhappened in my lifetime

and it was ahuge tasktoget things running

again,’’ Mr Blackwell saidduring the

interview.

The Blackwell building was one thatgot

‘‘whacked’’ by the earthquakes and along

withother businesses got downtothe task

of rebuilding pretty quickly.

Whenthe February earthquake struck

in 2011itwas time for the building to go,

and while theBlackwell’s rebuildbegan

quite earlyinthe piece, Mr Blackwell said

Andrew and JackiePalmer at New World,

Lindsay Petersatthe MandevilleTavern,a

‘‘Ittook confidence in the future of the

townas800 houses were lost to the

earthquakes ­1000 if you include Pines

Beach ­whichequated to aloss of

consumers.Ittook fortitude to riseout of

the shambles and getupand get going,’’ he

says.

He paid tribute to the loyaltyofKaiapoi

and country customers.

‘‘We wereable to keepgoing in

temporarypremises and we are very

gratefulfor the loyalty. You can not run a

business without customers,’’ said Mr

Blackwell.

No staff at the store had to be laid off, Mr

Blackwellsaid.

By SHELLEY TOPP

Record sales of more than $67,000were

achieved at the recent 15thannual

Kaiapoi Art Expo whichhas been

sponsoredbyBlackwellssince its

inception 16 years ago.

The expo is organised by the

Waimakariri Arts Trust and thenew chair,

Jackie Watson,creditedthe continuing

success of the event to ‘‘ourhard working

team’’, includingvice chairs Joan Whillans

and Clare Giffard, Christine Eastgateand

former chair Waimakariri District Mayor

Dan Gordon.

‘‘We are all volunteers but the important

members of the team, who are paid, are

the co­ordinatorTheresaSmith and

treasurer Linda Dunbar. Their input is

immense and contributes hugely in

makingthe expo the successthat it is.’’

Support from sponsors was also akey

factorinthe success of the event as it

helpedtoensure the expo continued to be

accessible to everyone.

‘‘It is important that it is only agold coin

entry fee to attractmaximum exposure for

the artists involved and provideaffordable

familyentertainment forthe district,’’

Jackiesays.

Planning for the expo,whichis

Waimakariri’s largest visual art show,

happens ‘‘at monthly meetings for half of

the year’’ leading up to event.

Tips for meeting new nitrogen

The Government­imposed nitrogen cap,

which requires farmers to apply no more

than 190kg of nitrogen per hectare ayear

took effect last month.

The new rules require farmers to

record synthetic nitrogen fertiliser

applications from July 1onwards and

report this to their regional council in

July next year.

DairyNZ has been monitor the change

on behalf of impacted farmers.

‘‘We don’t support the cap as it imposes

unnecessary regulatory compliance costs

on farmers and councils, and we believe

there are better ways to achieve the same

improvements in water quality,’’

DairyNZ chief executive Dr Tim Mackle

said.

‘‘We’ve been advocating that the

Government take apractical approach to

the farmer reporting requirements.’’

Dr Mackle said their were several ways

farmers could reduce nitrogen fertiliser

use, which can contribute to better water

quality and reducing greenhouse gas

emissions.

What do Ineed to do?

Understanding the new regulations

and how they apply to your farm is an

important first step and DairyNZ

encourages farmers to discuss it with a

trusted farm adviser or aDairyNZ

consulting officer.

Knowing how much synthetic nitrogen

fertiliser was applied last year over each

hectare or paddock of the farm allows

you to calculate how much you need to

reduce your application by.

Having good systems in place for

recording the tonnages of all nitrogen

applied on farm and the area it was

applied to will make reporting to the

regional council easier.

Farmers are encourage to create aplan

to meet the 190kg N/ha cap.

Those exceeding the cap can apply for

aresource consent.

Some Canterbury farmers have

successfully reduced their nitrogen

applications without compromising

pasture growth or profit through

involvement in the Forages for Reduced

Nitrate Leaching research programme.

More information about the

programme and tips for farmers can be

found on the DairyNZ website.

Successful transition requires

planning and time.

It is best to do it gradually, rather than

in one big step especially if the reduction

is bigger than 50­60kg N/ha/yr).

Several farmers have successfully

reduced nitrogen applications from more

than 300kg N/ha/yr to 200­230kg N/ha/yr,

but over athree­year period.

It is important that clover has time to

re­establish and the additional nitrogen

fixed, from increased clover growth, is

available to the grass, to compensate for

the lower nitrogen from fertiliser,

DairyNZ says.

Time is also required to ensure

management systems are in place to

accommodate the changes.

If you are using more than 190kg N/ha/

yr, you need to act now to minimise any

impacts on your system, while complying

with regulation.

from a“just­in­case”

“justified” approach, where

landownersuse real time

data and forecasts to make

science­based irrigation

Throughoutthe NIWA­led

programme, farmershave

been provided with daily

data includingmeasured

rainfall, soil moisture,soil

temperature,drainage, and

estimated evaporation as

well as two,six and 15­day

rainfalland weather

forecasts.

This dataisavailable in

both mobileand desktop

systems, in an easy­to­read

graphical format.

Soil moisture is measured

at eight locations vertically

downthe soilprofile, 10

centimetres apart, which

Focus on strong wool

By DAVID HILL

There is plenty of causefor optimism

among wool growers, Daniel Maxwell

says.

The FederatedFarmersNorth

Canterbury meat and wool chairperson

was commentingonrecent developments,

including efforts by the Strong Wool

ActionGroup, anew research initiative

and proposed merger between the

country’s two largest woolco­operatives.

‘‘It’sthe most positive news we’ve seen

in the strong wool industry for quitesome

time. It’sexpected to make ahuge

difference to our bottom line,’’ Mr

Maxwell says.

‘‘The proofwill be in the pudding, but

it’s great to finally have some positive

news.’’

Organisations such as Cavalier­

Bremworth, Big Save Furniture and

Merino New Zealandhave come on board

to championstrong wool,whilethe Strong

Wool Action Group is making abid to

breakinto the United States market with

branded wool.

The Wool ResearchOrganisation

(WRONZ) recently announced anew

research initiative with the Ministry of

Business,Innovation and Employment

(MBIE), while anew farm assurance

programme and aproposed merger

between Wools of New Zealandand

Primary Wool Co­operative is cause for

plenty of optimism, Federated Farmers

meat and woolchairperson William

Beetham says.

‘‘We’re really pleasedtosee industry

players worktogether to end

fragmentation and concentrate on driving

extravalue from the superior attributes

we all knowthat strong wool entails.I

believe it’s all adding up to anew dawn

for New Zealand strongwool.

‘‘We’re moving beyondsellingour clip

as araw productaswelook for high value,

branded consumer products that

capitaliseonstrong wool’s natural,

sustainable, super­warm,fire­retardant,

non­leaching, moistureand mouldresistant

credentials.’’

WRONZ and MBIE havejoinedforces

for research intothe development of

uniquewool particles, powders and

pigments with global export potential for

applications as diverse as cosmetics,

printing,luxury goods and personalcare.

The new farmassurance programme

has beenbacked by 23 wool companies

and aims to build systems to ensure a

standard of supply and traceabilityto

meets market expectations.

Farmers will get to vote on the

proposed merger in November, and by

then the Primary Wool Co­operativewill

becomethe ownerofCPWool brokersby

buyingCarrfields’ 50 percent holding.

‘‘I’m really buoyed by this

determination to lift our game, tell the

exceptional story of our wool’s

provenance, and get better returnsfor

New Zealand farmers,’’ Mr Beethamsays.

country to discussthe proposed Wools of

Farms focus on biodiversity

Aseries of biodiversity projects has

improved awareness of the special

values of streams and rivers throughout

the Waimakariri catchment.

Waimakariri Irrigation Ltd’s (WIL)

biodiversity project lead, Dan Cameron,

says knowledge and understanding of the

land and water in the area has grown

exponentially since an initial

biodiversity stock take of the scheme

identified 297 sites of interest in 2018.

‘‘We also identified four lowland

freshwater stream systems, three of

which were not widely known,’’ he says.

Seven projects have been started

across four lowland stream catchments

across the scheme, including two

projects at Cust River, three projects at

Burgess Stream and one project each at

Old Eyre and Hunters streams.

Planting work started last week on one

of the Burgess Stream projects, which is

the first stage in aseries of linked

projects aiming to restore the length of

the stream.

‘‘Burgess Stream has presented us with

afantastic opportunity for WIL

shareholders to enable catchment­scale

restoration right from the beginning,’’ Mr

Cameron says.

‘‘While there have been many

learnings along the way, it’s very exciting

to be seeing everybody’s efforts turning

the vision into areality.’’

He says work on Burgess Stream will

protect the values around the spring

head and the area further downstream

where the water leaves the catchment

area and flows through lifestyle blocks.

‘‘It’s the perfect opportunity for the

wider community to see the value in the

work we are doing to protect the

environment as the water way literally

flows through their properties.’’

All shareholders Mr Cameron has

worked with now have biodiversity plans

in place which enable them to comply

with regulatory requirements around

biodiversity and freshwater.

These plans provide evidence of

shareholders’ environmental

guardianship and awillingness to be

proactive in enhancing streams and

water ways on or near the landowner’s

properties, he says.

‘‘Landowners can also use this

documentation to apply for funding from

other sources to continue on with their

environmental improvement projects onfarm,

so the biodiversity plans are useful

for amyriad of different purposes.

‘‘Some landowners have been able to

secure up to 50 percent of the funding

required for their projects.

‘‘The biodiversity plans also help to

identify action points which can be

woven into afarm environment plan,

such as planting and stock exclusion

which can deal with point source issues.’’

The programme is also reaching to

provide hands­on learning opportunities

for local schools through community

outreach project with West Eyreton

School.

Tips for farm audits

Help is at hand for Kaikoura farmers

preparing for their farm audits.

Environment Canterbury land

management advisor Pete Bradshaw has

been spending time leaning on fences

and kitchen benches to help steer

farmers in the right direction to meet

local and national rules.

One local farmer says the support Mr

Bradshaw provided him was invaluable

in helping him through his audit process,

which afew years ago, would have made

him ‘‘run for the hills’’.

‘‘Working with Pete encouraged us in

all aspects of our obligations. He was

approachable and helpful on so many

levels,’’ the farmer says.

‘‘He visited us on­farm, carried out

tests for us and gave us good advice on

practical ways to improve our operation.

‘‘Pete’s enthusiasm and help through

the whole process made our audit much

less daunting. We felt really listened to

and valued as farmers.’’

Mr Bradshaw says the audit process

doesn’t have to be difficult or scary and

engaging early with staff can really help

in the long run.

‘‘The whole process is confidential, so

if you’re worried about some aspects of

your plan, or just want to check that

you’re on the right track, Ican help.’’

Several projects funded by the

Kaikoura Plains Recovery Project

helped set some good foundations for

local dairy farmers to work from.

In 2019, as part of the ‘farming in wet

conditions’ workstream, the project

funded ‘pre­audit dummy runs’ where an

approved auditor engaged with Kaikoura

dairy farms, regardless of whether they

needed aconsent.

‘‘This provided dairy farmers with an

opportunity to see where they were postquake

and where they needed to be in

terms of their farm audit,’’ Mr Bradshaw

says.

‘‘Kaikoura farmers were really lucky to

have this early support. Being reassured

that they were on the right track while

showing them the areas that needed

work, was agame changer when it came

to preparing for their actual audit,’’ he

said.

The project also initially part­funded

(cultural land management advisor)

Makarini Rupene.

‘‘Makarini’s early work with Kaikoura

dairy farmers helped them start to

understand the value and importance of

blending mahinga kai values into their

day­to­day management and farm

environment plans, while also helping to

set some manageable targets,’’ Mr

Bradshaw says.

All consented farms in Canterbury are

required to have afarm environment

plan, which identifies risks and sets out

how the farm is going to manage its

environmental impact.

All plans are audited by an

independent auditor and Environment

Canterbury is notified if there is follow

up required, or to note when the next

inspection date is set for.

Farms achieving aCorDgrade are

considered non­achieving, while an Aor

Bgrade means the farm is compliant and

is audited once every two to four years

depending on consent conditions.

Weather takes its toll on Sunday hockey

HOCKEY

Cold rain and snow flurries on Sunday

caused the cancellation of many

Rangiora Hockey Club platinum and

senior grade games for the second time

this season.

With only acouple of games left in

round robin play, teams need all the

points and game time they can get ahead

of the finals.

In particular the Rangiora Colts and

Oddfellows were drawn to play each

other, which would have given one of

them bragging rights and potentially top

standing going into the finals.

Fine weather on Saturday saw afull

round of division 1and junior games

completed, but not with the results many

teams would have been hoping for.

Both division 1men's and women's

teams were beaten, with the men backing

up from their catch up game against

Southern on Thursday night, which they

also lost.

With semi­finals looming this

weekend, both teams now have an

opportunity to upset the apple cart and

finish their seasons on ahigh.

Performance of the week must go to the

Rangiora Amid­week open men's team,

which put its nearest rivals Marist

Gooses to the sword on Tuesday night.

Both teams were unbeaten heading

into the top of the table clash, after the

round one game was cancelled due to turf

flooding.

There was an expectation of this being

atightly fought contest.

But there was only one team in it, as

Rangiora’s Craig Reynolds scored two

early goals from penalty corners, then

kept scoring at regular intervals and held

strong on defence to deny Marist any

opportunities for acome back.

The 7­0 result gives the Rangiora team

confidence of winning division 2asthese

two teams will likely meet again in the

final in just two weeks time.

The Rangiora Allsorts players will be

kicking themselves for missed

opportunities in the clash with Southern

United at MainPower Turf.

Up 3­1 at half­time, the Allsorts failed

to convert its chances in the second,

while the visitors wore down the defence

to score 3late goals.

Fortunately the result made no

difference to the table standings and the

Allsorts has the opportunity next week to

secure sixth spot and aplayoff against

Harewood.

In the mid­week open women's

competition the Rangiora Hurunui

Hares took maximum points in the game

against Avon and should secure top spot

in division 1heading into the finals week.

Meanwhile the Rangiora Hurunui Hawks

secured just its fourth win of the season,

beating Avon for the second time.

What’s happening in your

community…

MainPower Stadium Opens to the Public

Mayor Dan Gordon and North Canterbury Sport

and Recreation Trust (NCSRT) Chair Don Robertson

cut the ribbon on Sunday in front ofhundreds of

people who braved the rain and snow toattend the

official opening of the MainPower Stadium.

“It’sbeen20years in themaking and Ithinkitmeans a

lottoourcommunity, from our youngathletes,toour

sportspeople andthosewho willuse it morebroadly as

amulti-usefacility,” saysMayor DanGordon.“Seeing

thehugenumber of people whoattendedshows just

how much it means to the community.”

It’s estimated up to four thousand people attended

the open day and toured the stadium’svarious areas

including the central fitness centre, main court area

and coaching spaces. On the courts, local teams

got their first chance totry out the facility as they

entertained guests with sports demonstrations.

The stadium will be managed by the NCSRT who

have been eagerly awaiting the opening asthe

District’s expanding population has outgrown

existing court space.

“This is agame changer for the community, it’s

state of the art and we’ve got everything we could

possibly need,” says Don Robertson, NCSRT Chair.

“We are really excited.”

At 6000m2 in size and featuring four standard

sized courts the community facility isthe largest

to be constructed in the District. It was designed

by Warren and Mahoney and built over 18months

by Leighs Construction.

It’s Rail Safety Week

Nationally, since the beginning of 2010, there have

been 48 recorded serious or fatal crashes involving

atrain and amotor vehicle and two collisions with

cyclists. Twenty of these were fatal. Sadly, some of

the Waimakariri District’s rail crossings feature in

these statistics.

Today is the start of Rail Safety Week, an annual

event, planned and coordinated by KiwiRail and

TrackSAFENZ. The campaign aims to raise awareness

about rail safety and to encourage safe behaviour

around trains, railway tracks and level crossings.

There are 23 rail crossings in our District, and a

variety of different controls ranging from barriers

and flashing lights to basic signage.

Everyone is reminded topay extra attention at

rail crossings and not get complacent about the

risk.Around 72 percent ofserious and fatalcrashes

between vehicles and trains happenatcrossings with

passive protection –either agiveway or stopsign.

Athird of fatal and serious level crossing incidents

involve farmers. If you cross arail crossing every

day and never see atrain it is common to become

complacent. However, the outcome if you get it

wrong isnot worth the risk.

Please continuetotake care around rail crossings, pay

full attention and always expect there to be atrain.

Awesome fundraisers ... Friends of Rangiora Hospital members Susan Beatson (left) Margaret Donovan, Carol

Fundraising plants stolen

By SHELLEY TOPP

Agroup of keen gardeners who

cannot bear to throw aplant out

have raised more than $167,737

for the Rangiora Hospital.

But now the Friends of

Rangiora Hospital Society have

had their long­term fundraising

efforts placed in jeopardy by

‘‘low­life thieves’’ stealing the

plants from their stall outside the

entry to the Rangiora Health Hub.

In the twenty years since the

Friends have been selling plants

at the stall the money they have

raised has been used to enhance

the environment for both patients

and staff at the hospital.

The Friends propagate the

plants from their own gardens, pot

them up and care for them until

they are ready to be sold.

It is alot of work, but the women

say they love gardening and enjoy

using their skills to raise money

for the hospital.

But it is disappointing when

‘‘low­life thieve’’ choose to steal

from this most worthy cause, they

say.

David Cotter, who has been the

society’s treasurer for 23 years,

says thieves have also stolen a

custom­made trolley used to cart

the plants to the Friends’ display

stand.

David's wife Marion is also a

member of the society, and his

father Dr Arthur Cotter was a

former medical superintendent at

Rangiora Hospital from 1939 until

1984.

He says it is difficult to

understand what makes people

steal funds from ahospital, which

is providing aservice they might

need one day.

‘‘We just hope they never need

to utilise the hospital facilities,’’

he says.

The Friends of Rangiora

Hospital also raise funds for the

hospital by hand­knitting baby

clothes for acraft cabinet in the

hospital foyer, selling walnuts,

gathered from awalnut tree in the

hospital gardens and also selling

hazelnuts collected from a

member’s garden.

The society is always looking for

new members to join the group.

Anyone interested in learning

more about the Friends or

becoming involved is welcome to

attend its annual general meeting

at the Rangiora Health Hub on

Monday, August 30, starting at

7pm.
