ASunday stroll<br />

By DAVID HILL AND ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong>’s councils are<br />

remaining firm on their<br />

commitmenttoconsulttheir<br />

communities on theGovernment’s<br />

proposedThree Waters Reforms<br />

beforedecidingwhethertoopt in<br />

or out.<br />

But they believe central<br />

government may change the Local<br />

Government Act2002,toremove<br />

any requirement for themtoengage<br />

withtheir communities.<br />

Thiscomes as the Government<br />

pushesonwith itsproposal to<br />

transfer the managementofthe<br />

three waters —drinking water,<br />

waste water andstormwater—<br />

from67councils nationwide, to<br />

fourlargeentitieswithone<br />

covering mostofthe South Island.<br />

The WaimakaririDistrict Council<br />

is thefirstout of the blocks, with<br />

consultation under waythis week<br />

and open untilSeptember 5, while<br />

the HurunuiDistrict Council is<br />

consulting informally withits<br />

community.<br />

‘‘The council’s position remains<br />

that, basedonthe limited<br />

information presented so far, we do<br />

not jointhe Government’s reform<br />

programmeatthis point,’’Mayor<br />

Dan Gordon says.<br />

‘‘Weare notconvinced thatthere<br />

are benefits for the Waimakariri<br />

community, butimportantly we<br />

need to hear fromthe community<br />

before reachingaformal decision.’’<br />

The council haswritten to the<br />

Department of InternalAffairs with<br />

28 questions,but hasyet to receive<br />

aresponse ­even thoughone was<br />

promised two weeks ago,Mr<br />

Gordon says.<br />

‘‘We allagree that quality<br />

drinking water and environmental<br />

outcomes are agoodthingfor the<br />

country.’’<br />

Waimakariri’sconcerns include<br />

‘‘fair compensation’’for these<br />

public assets, theaccuracyof<br />

Government projections,future<br />

costs to ratepayers,planning coordination,<br />

local representation,<br />

responsivenessduring natural<br />

disasters and the paceofthe<br />

reformprocess.<br />

‘‘At themoment we think thereis<br />

only one­sidebeingpresented and<br />

we wantlocals to understand what<br />

thesereformscouldmean for them<br />

if we take partinthiswater reform<br />

process,’’MrGordon says.<br />

HurunuiDistrict Council chief<br />

executive HamishDobbie saysa<br />

more formal Special Consultation<br />

‘‘UnderCouncil’sSignificant<br />

Engagement Policy(SEP), it willbe<br />

Raeward Fresh Harewood, Ms Laird<br />

says.<br />

‘‘Building asupermarket in abrand<br />

new community is so exciting and New<br />

means passionate locals, like Justin and<br />

Melissa, have the flexibility to adapt<br />

their store offering to their locality.<br />

‘‘From bringing all the great value,<br />

choice and convenience New World has<br />

to offer, to growing and supporting this<br />

exciting new community to thrive,<br />

The new supermarket will employ<br />

around 100 locals including in­store<br />

butchers, bakers and deli specialists<br />

supporting community initiatives.<br />

Flood costs Waimakariri $4m<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

The WaimakaririDistrict Council’s<br />

repair bill fromthe recentflood<br />

eventisexpected to cost almost$4<br />

million.<br />

Roading, bridgeand three waters<br />

infrastructurerepair work is well<br />

underway, following the May 31<br />

floodevent.<br />

Around half of the workisalready<br />

finished, recovery manager Simon<br />

Hart says.<br />

‘‘When we moved from response<br />

to recovery, we endedupputting<br />

together five largework<br />

programmes that contained33<br />

projects.<br />

‘‘Some of those projectsare<br />

pretty big, particularly around<br />

roading repairs which will cost<br />

around $2 million,sowith the three<br />

waters repairs, welfare support<br />

and other costs the total cost to the<br />

council is estimatedtobebetween<br />

$3.5 and $4 million.’’<br />

The council is continuing to<br />

engage with governmentagencies<br />

to see what level of funding support<br />

is available, while its insurance<br />

claimisongoing and aclaim has<br />

been made with Waka KotahiNew<br />

Zealand Transport Agency.<br />

‘‘We will be abletoget a<br />

reasonable sum back, but therewill<br />

stillbeasignificant cost to<br />

ratepayers,’’ Mr Hart says.<br />

Lees Valley, Okuku River and<br />

Waikuku Beach were the worst<br />

impacted areasand repairswill<br />

take some time to complete, but<br />

temporary solutions are in place<br />

for now,hesays.<br />

‘‘It’s all functional and critical<br />

to be madepermanent. Therewill<br />

Council staff have been working<br />

closely with Environment<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> (ECan) engineers, the<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> Rural Advisory Group<br />

led by formerHurunui Mayor<br />

WintonDalley, the Ministry of<br />

Primary Industries (MPI),<br />

FederatedFarmers and the <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> RuralSupport Trust to<br />

support theruralcommunities.<br />

Thecouncil has beenworking<br />

with 60 rural properties which<br />

sufferedextensive damage,<br />

including 25 lifestyle properties.<br />

While commercial farms can<br />

apply for assistance from MPI’s$4<br />

millionfund, the 25 lifestyle<br />

properties are left with the Mayoral<br />

Fundtoassist withuninsured<br />

damage, with just $50,000 available<br />

to Waimakariri.<br />

‘‘Weare mindful it was nowhere<br />

nearthe amount that was required<br />

to bringtheseproperties backto<br />

pre floodlevels so we have been<br />

lobbying governmentagencies and<br />

willcontinue to do so,’’MrHart<br />

says.<br />

ECanengineers havebeen out to<br />

in the Waimakariridistrict since<br />

the flood,workinglong hours to<br />

assess thedamageand see what<br />

workcan be donetorepairthe<br />

rivers.<br />

‘‘But that willtake some time as<br />

ECanisworking acrossthe region,<br />

fromTimaru up to Waimakariri,’’<br />

Mr Hartsays.<br />

In contrast to the rural areas,<br />

urban areas held up well to the<br />

flood event.<br />

‘‘Therewere someareas where<br />

we would haveexpected some<br />

localised flooding, but they have<br />

beenmanagedalot better because<br />

of our flood protection works in<br />

recent years, so that’s areal<br />

positive.’’<br />

Overall the Waimakariridistrict<br />

hascome through its latest<br />

challenge and has bounced back<br />

quickly, Mr Hart says<br />

‘‘Ithink it’s areal credit to our<br />

community and how resilient<br />

people are in this district.’’<br />

Cust River stopbank upgrade to cost $75,000<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

ACust River stopbank alongside<br />

O’Roarkes Road in Fernside is<br />

being upgraded by Environment<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> at acost of $75,000.<br />

The stopbankisbeing rebuilt<br />

to achieve better flood<br />

protection.<br />

ECan’srivers manager Leigh<br />

Griffiths says it is beinglifted to<br />

the sameheight as the trueright<br />

bank, withthe riverside batter<br />

being rebuilt.<br />

This is to reduce risk of<br />

erosion and make matinenance<br />

easier.<br />

The upgrade is being done to a<br />

section of the stopbank which<br />

had rottentrees and roots<br />

running through it. Workisalso<br />

being donetoimprove the site’s<br />

safetyand numerous cracked<br />

willows withinthe road reserve<br />

have been felled.<br />

‘‘These trees posedarisk to<br />

cars entering or exiting the<br />

previous carpark as theycaused<br />

blind spots,’’’ Ms Griffiths says.<br />

The work is being completed<br />

as part of awider projectto<br />

improve parking on the site and<br />

extend the existing native<br />

planting block. New fencing is<br />

planned along the O’Roarkes<br />

Road side of the upgraded area.<br />

‘‘We understand that<br />

earthworkssuch as this can look<br />

messy, particularlywhen<br />

undertaken in winter,but we<br />

believe thatthese stopbank and<br />

amenity upgrades willgreatly<br />

improve the area and the<br />

communitywill like it once it is<br />

completed.’’<br />

The work is likelytobe<br />

completedbythe end of the<br />

month or early September.<br />

The upgrade doesnot include<br />

plans to removethe white bridge<br />

at the O’Roarkes Road end of<br />

BridgeRoad which was closedto<br />

vehicles about 10 years ago, but<br />

is still used by pedestrians and<br />

cyclists.<br />

The bridge is aWaimakariri<br />

District Council roading asset.<br />

The council’s roadingand<br />

transport manager on this<br />

project, Joanne McBride, says<br />

the council had not been<br />

approached by ECan with any<br />

concerns aboutthe bridge and<br />

the council has no plans to<br />

removeit.<br />

Eventful Hurunui to<br />

host free workshop<br />

The board of Eventful Hurunui is<br />

hosting afree workshop on Monday,<br />

<strong>August</strong> 30, at The Better Half Leithfield<br />

at 6pm, with Jon Holmes of Events Goals.<br />

Jon will introduce participants to<br />

practical information on how to make<br />

certain your event is successful.<br />

If you want to make your next event a<br />

great success your registration is<br />

welcome on www.eventfulhurunui.co.<br />

nz/eventful­workshops.<br />

Numbers are limited to Hurunui<br />

residents and we look forward to your<br />

attendance.<br />

Events and activities across our<br />

district provide the opportunity for<br />

social cohesion, which is critical for our<br />

wellbeing, the volunteer contribution to<br />

hosting events is significant across our<br />

district and many of these attributes<br />

were celebrated at the annual Hurunui<br />

District community service awards.<br />

Guest speaker Trish Coleman spoke<br />

about the valueofcontribution and<br />

volunteering.<br />

As humans we are‘socialanimals’, our<br />

relationships with others contribute to<br />

feeling good. It’s important to socially<br />

connect with others where we can and<br />

developing healthy relationships can<br />

increase our feelings of happiness,<br />

security, belonging and self­worth.<br />

Scientific studies showthat helping<br />

others boosts happiness, improves our<br />

mood andreduces stressand is likely to<br />

take our mindsoff our own concerns.<br />

Ihave had the privilegeofattending<br />

the annual St John’s volunteer dinner<br />

and several Fire and Emergency NZ<br />

awards ceremonies, these eventshave<br />

celebrated many of our community<br />

members whohave given 100’s of hours<br />

collectively to the wellbeing of our<br />

district.<br />

Being called avolunteer is aprecious<br />

title, one that is admired as it is through<br />

volunteering the true value of serviceto<br />

the community is demonstrated —we<br />

are fortunate to live in acommunity that<br />

values these involvements.<br />

‘‘Together Hurunui’’is aforumthat<br />

provides collaboration for social service<br />

providers to come together on abimonthly<br />

basis with the vision ‘‘thatall<br />

people in the Hurunui are valued and<br />

connected’’.<br />

This network encourages<br />

participation to ensure successful<br />

outcomes for individuals and<br />

communities, it also has been<br />

instrumental in advocating and<br />

supporting positive outcomes for health<br />

and wellbeing in the district.<br />

To all of you who create events both<br />

commercial and not for profit –thank<br />

you for making the Hurunui agreat<br />

place to live, to visit and enjoy.<br />

Spring is just around the corner and<br />

that means ahost of events will be<br />

happening for us to enjoy.<br />

Climate change<br />

and killing cows<br />

By BRUCE FRAMPTON,OXFORD<br />

Fellow New Zealander’s, it’s not<br />

governments, conglomerates, virtue<br />

signalling political leaders or people<br />

writing endlessdoom and gloomarticles<br />

that will savethis planet.<br />

No, it is you and me and the hundredsof<br />

millionsofpeople around the worldthat<br />

could, if we wanted to, save the planetfrom<br />

further degradation.<br />

Latest researchbyRhodium Group<br />

reports thatChina,India and the USA emit<br />

around 45% of theworld’s greenhouse<br />

gasses.<br />

Chinaalone emits more greenhouse gas<br />

than the entiredeveloped world<br />

combined. Central to this is China,India<br />

and the USA’s reliance on coalfired power<br />

stations.<br />

This energy is used to produce goods<br />

whichhas fuelledrampant consumerism<br />

polluting the world’s atmosphere and<br />

filling our oceans with country sized<br />

islands of plastic. Floating in the Pacific<br />

Oceanisthe ‘Great Pacific Garbage Patch’<br />

covering1.6 millionsquare kilometres, an<br />

area three timesthe size of France.<br />

We, the peoplewho buy these goods,can<br />

send amarket drivenmessage that would<br />

forcethe demise of coalburningpower<br />

stations used for manufacture.The effect<br />

this wouldhave on the world’s climate is<br />

no better illustrated than what thecovid<br />

lockdowns achieved for the planet’s health<br />

in such afleeting space of time last year.<br />

Governments and interested<br />

corporationsare notgoing to stoppeople<br />

buying the latesttelevisions,smart phones,<br />

computers, fashion clothing, countless<br />

plastic goods and throwaway bling these<br />

countries produce.<br />

Free trades agreements, overwhelming<br />

political pressureand business bottom<br />

lines will stop this solution from ever being<br />

seriously consideredand the reasonswhy<br />

will be trumpetedlong and loud by the<br />

corporateowned media. We the people are<br />

the problemand we the peoplecan be the<br />

solution.Make adecision, the welfare and<br />

continuation of lifeasweknowit, or an<br />

unstoppableplunge into an abyss of<br />

endless adverse weather events.<br />

Are we going to have afutureofGreta<br />

Thunberg inspired youngpeople believing<br />

that reducing New Zealand’scontribution<br />

of greenhouse gasesof0.17 percent (yes<br />

that’sright) less than 1/5thof1%will<br />

somehow save the world?<br />

We could killall the cowsinNew<br />

Zealand, drive electric cars, do everything<br />

we can to reduce our carbon footprint here<br />

in New Zealand and this will save the<br />

world from the worst of extremes of<br />

climate change? Yeahright!<br />

If the governmentsofthe worldare<br />

serious about climatethen they should<br />

deal withthe issuesthat would seriously<br />

give us achancetochange things.Ifthe<br />

world’s leaders compensated South<br />

American countries fromdestroyingthe<br />

Amazonrain forest, ‘the lungsofthe earth’,<br />

stopped encouraging coal fired power<br />

generation for manufacturing and guided<br />

the world’s economies awayfrom<br />

excessiveconsumerism then we would<br />

have the sortofprogress thatwouldsave<br />

the world.<br />

I’m not advocating thatweshouldn’t do<br />

everything we caninNew Zealand to<br />

mitigate climatechange, we must, but if we<br />

reallywant to makeastatement to save the<br />

planetthen we must forgo all the<br />

unnecessary bling of thisconsumer<br />

orientated world and votewith our money<br />

and not our mouths.<br />

Bus pupil safety concerns grow<br />

Schoolbus driver Becky Black is very<br />

aware of the preciouscargoshe has on<br />

board for her daily schoolbus route.<br />

Butshe, and otherschool busdrivers in<br />

theHurunuidistrict, arebecoming<br />

increasinglyconcerned aboutthe safety<br />

of pupils,particularlythe speed vehicles<br />

up pupils.<br />

Becky,who does the Amberley busrun<br />

to HurunuiCollege,says people do not<br />

sticktothe speed limit of 20 kph,when<br />

buses arestopped,picking up or dropping<br />

offstudents.<br />

‘‘They just flypastme. It’sconcerning<br />

because childrencan be so unpredictable<br />

Schoolbus driverPeterBlack,who<br />

does the HanmerSprings run encounters<br />

similarissues.<br />

“Ifitwas their childrenor<br />

grandchildrenonthe bus, maybe they<br />

wouldbehave differently.<br />

‘‘Childrensometimes runout on to the<br />

road to greet their parents or friends.<br />

‘‘We try to prevent this, but we need<br />

peopletoslowdown.”<br />

Following distances by othervehicles is<br />

also aproblem,Peter and Becky say.<br />

“Onthe openroad whenthere is a<br />

queue following closely, thepressure is<br />

on to let them past,’’Peter says.<br />

Often driver impatience sawsomeone<br />

ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT’S<br />

THREE WATERS REFORM<br />

Will Water Reform Benefit Waimakariri?<br />

The Government is proposing that three water (drinking<br />

water, wastewater and stormwater) services move from<br />

the 67 councils who currently manage these, into four<br />

large entities.<br />

If the reform goes ahead, Waimakariri District would become<br />

part ofanentity that covers most of the South Island. The<br />

Government has given councils until the end of September to<br />

provide feedback onthe proposal.<br />

Quality drinking water and better environmental outcomes are<br />

agood thing for the country.<br />

But we’re not clear yet whether the Government’s proposed<br />

Three Waters Reform is the best way to achieve this, and<br />

what the advantages are for our District.<br />

We want to know what’s important toour community and hear<br />

what you think.<br />

Find out more about the Government’s Three Waters Reform<br />

Climate change on<br />

Hurunui programme<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate<br />

Change’s latest report warns that climate<br />

changeiswidespread, accelerating, and<br />

poses asevere risk to people and<br />

ecosystems.<br />

Initiatives are beingput in place<br />

aroundthe worldtolimit global warming.<br />

but they need to accelerate, the report<br />

warns.<br />

In 2015 two of <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong>’s<br />

mayorsatthat time, Waimakariri’s David<br />

Ayers and Kaikoura’sWinstonGray,<br />

joined other New Zealand mayorsand<br />

chairs in signing the Local Government<br />

Leaders’ Climate Change Declarationto<br />

acknowledge ``the importance and<br />

urgent need to address climate change<br />

for the benefit of current and future<br />

generations.’’<br />

AlthoughHurunui Mayor at that time,<br />

WintonDalley, did not sign the 2015<br />

declaration his successor Marie Black<br />

says the Hurunui District Council is<br />

working to address climate change.<br />

‘‘Within our StrategicPlan, and<br />

consideringour position as a<br />

predominantly rural council, the changes<br />

of water patterns and prolonged periods<br />

of drought has meant that waterstorage<br />

is something we are very conscious of,’’<br />

she says.<br />

‘‘We are currently working on climate<br />

changeadaptationswhichimpact on<br />

water availability for the District’s inland<br />

areas.’’<br />

Marie is amember of the Climate<br />

ChangeSteeringGroup as part of the<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> Mayoral Forum, where ideas<br />

on how to approach climate changeare<br />

regularly discussed and the Hurunui<br />

District Councilispart of It’s Time<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong>,whichisa<strong>Canterbury</strong>­wide<br />

website aligned with neighbouring<br />

districtcouncils and Environment<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong>, to talktothe region about<br />

climate change.<br />

Marieacknowledges thatthe Hurunui<br />

communityhas avarietyofviews on<br />

climate change.<br />

However, she says ‘‘our focus is on<br />

working with peoplewho are keentodo<br />

theirbit,’’and significantclimate­change<br />

initiatives have been achieved in the<br />

district.<br />

Theseincludethe launch of aprojectto<br />

trackthe council’s carbon footprint.<br />

‘‘Themost recent development has<br />

been the installationofsolar panelson<br />

our councilbuildinginAmberley,’’ she<br />

says.<br />

New initiativesaroundactive<br />

transport, drainage and drinking water<br />

reliability havealso been put in place,<br />

and trail networks for walking and<br />

cycling are beingdeveloped.<br />

‘‘We are improving the capacity of our<br />

stormwaternetwork to ensure our<br />

communities are better protectedfrom<br />

largerainfallevents and we are currently<br />

looking to find additional groundwater<br />

sources that are less influenced by<br />

seasonal or climate change patterns.’’<br />

The council is also workingwith its<br />

localcommunitiesdeveloping long­term<br />

plansfor coastal development that suit<br />

the individual desires of each settlement.<br />

River in the spotlight<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Restoring the natural character of the<br />

Waipara River, planting natives along its<br />

banks, and encouraging the return of<br />

wildlife, are the aims of the newly<br />

formed Waipara Catchment Rivercare<br />

group.<br />

The group also wants to ensure a<br />

healthy environment which can be<br />

enjoyed by walkers and families.<br />

Removing willow trees from the<br />

riverbed, controlling old man’s beard,<br />

and other invasive weeds, are top of the<br />

group’s list, along with atrapping<br />

programme for animal pests, restricting<br />

vehicle access in the river, and planting<br />

natives are actions put forward at a<br />

recent meeting to help achieve the<br />

group’s aims.<br />

Group facilitator, Rima Herber, says<br />

the one representative of the 4WD<br />

community made it clear there were<br />

many who would object to being<br />

excluded from driving in the riverbed as<br />

it was avery valued form of recreation<br />

among off­road vehicle drivers.<br />

Twenty seven people attended the<br />

meeting with several apologies, she said,<br />

with people expressing their<br />

commitment to work to restore the river,<br />

and acknowledging it would be alongterm<br />

undertaking.<br />

Andrew Arps, the <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

Zone Manager from ECan, told the group<br />

awillow control programme will begin<br />

in September to clear willows from the<br />

main channel of the Waipara River from<br />

half akilometre above the state highway<br />

bridge down to the sea.<br />

The willow trees will be cut down and<br />

removed, and the regrowth sprayed at a<br />

later date.<br />

Waipara River ... Willows will be targeted<br />

during an ECan programme beginning next<br />

month.<br />

PHOTO: SUPPLIED<br />

It was agreed to create three small<br />

working groups to tackle specific issues<br />

—willows, old man’s beard and<br />

recreational vehicles. These groups will<br />

meet monthly.<br />

The next Waipara Catchment<br />

Rivercare Group meeting will be held at<br />

7pm on Tuesday, <strong>August</strong> 24, in the<br />

Waipara Pavilion, at the Glenmark<br />

Reserve. Leigh Love, alocal fossil<br />

expert, will give apresentation. Mr Love<br />

discovered fossils of birds previously<br />

unknown to science, in the river. One<br />

bears his name, Australornis lovei.<br />

Students shape future of sport<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Two Rangiora High School pupils<br />

are helping to shape New Zealand’s<br />

future Olympians.<br />

JadeKruger and Paris Karaka<br />

are serving on national sports<br />

committees to sharethe viewsof<br />

young people participating in sport.<br />

Bothare highachieving sports<br />

people in their own right,with Paris<br />

having been selected for the New<br />

Zealand under­18 women’s touch<br />

squad, the <strong>Canterbury</strong>women’s<br />

senior netballteam and also plays<br />

volleyball.<br />

Jadeplays football, participates<br />

in athletics, is keen to playrugby<br />

sevens and her goal is to represent<br />

New Zealand in the 100 metre and<br />

200 metresprints.<br />

Paris, who is in year 12, is one of<br />

just13pupils serving on the<br />

inaugural School SportNew<br />

Zealand Student Athlete<br />

Commission(SAC)and will be<br />

attendinganationalsports<br />

conference in Rotoruanext month<br />

as part of her role.<br />

‘‘Our focus is to make sports<br />

better andtoencourage more<br />

participation.’’<br />

Ayear 13 pupil, Jade is serving on<br />

the New ZealandSportCoaching<br />

Advisory Committee, which<br />

includes justtwo secondary school<br />

students fromaround the country to<br />

suggestimprovements for coaches.<br />

‘‘Wecontributetoshapingthe<br />

directionofcoaching, identifying<br />

problems and finding solutions.’’<br />

Among the topicsdiscussed are<br />

how to attract more young peopleto<br />

playsport, the pressuresonyoung<br />

coaching programme gaining<br />

traction in secondary schools<br />

aroundthe country, which<br />

encourages cultural changeand<br />

promotes moreyouth participation<br />

in sport, Jade says.<br />

‘‘Balance is Betterisused alot<br />

more in schools in the <strong>North</strong> Island<br />

and they’vefound they have so<br />

many more kids participation<br />

because it’s more fun.<br />

‘‘One school stopped playing<br />

15­a­side rugby and changed to<br />

sevensand foundthey had more<br />

kids participating becausethey all<br />

get to pass the ballinagame, so it’s<br />

more fun and they’restill<br />

developing the skills.’’<br />

Many young people just want to<br />

play with theirfriends, butasthey<br />

get older and move up the ranks the<br />

pressurescan become more<br />

intense,Paris says.<br />

‘‘I think that’s why lotsofyoung<br />

people drop out, because it gets so<br />

seriousand you have other<br />

priorities, like an after school job<br />

and NCEA.<br />

‘‘Thecommitmentisahuge<br />

thing.’’<br />

Part of the challengeisthe<br />

different expectations between<br />

coaches and players from different<br />

generations andupbringings.<br />

One of thepressures for Paris is<br />

she knows she needs to focus on one<br />

sportifshe wants to progress to the<br />

top level.<br />

Jade hopes to study psychology<br />

and sportsscience next year, while<br />

Parisisinterested in joining the<br />

army or the police.<br />

Temporary rubbish bags<br />

As supply chain disruptions continue<br />

worldwide,shipping delays have forced a<br />

temporary solution for the supply of tiehandle<br />

Waimakariri District Council<br />

brandedrubbish bags.<br />

The tie­handle bags are supplied by a<br />

Christchurch­based firm,but are produced<br />

by an overseas manufacturer and the<br />

disruptions mean they are unlikely to<br />

arrive in the country for anotherfour to six<br />

months.<br />

‘‘We’vebeen working with our local<br />

supplier to make ashort term supply of<br />

bags that will tie us over for the next few<br />

months,’’ solidwaste asset manager Kitty<br />

Waghorn says.<br />

The temporary bags have aperforated<br />

tear­off tie and are the sameasthose used<br />

before the councilmoved to tie­handle<br />

bags, and are the same volumeand price as<br />

tie­handlebags.<br />

The council movedtotie­handle bags<br />

more than ten years ago, due to feedback<br />

from both the community and the council’s<br />

collection contractors that the tear­off tie<br />

bags were difficult to handle.<br />

The tie often popped off, spilling rubbish<br />

on the street, and were difficult to wrap<br />

around afull rubbish bag.<br />

The tie­handlebags were originally<br />

manufactured locally, but the manufacture<br />

has moved off­shore due to low demand<br />

across the country for this styleofbag.<br />

The council acknowledges that the tie<br />

bags are more difficult to handle when they<br />

are full, and anticipate movingback to the<br />

tie­handle bags as soon as stock arrives, Ms<br />

Waghorn says.<br />

‘‘To make it alittle easier to use the tietop<br />

bags, we ask residentsnot to over­fill<br />

them.<br />

‘‘Over­filling definitely makes it more<br />

likely that the tie will come off when they’re<br />

being carried to the kerb and also during<br />

pick up.’’<br />

While the councilwaits for the temporary<br />

bags to arrive,residents may seeblue bags<br />

with acouncillogo sticker at the<br />

supermarkets and council services where<br />

bags can be purchased.<br />

Rubbishbags work on auser pays basis,<br />

All clear ... Grace Gormack (14) and Googleit clear afence.<br />

Amberley’srising star<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Rising star Grace Gormack has been<br />

riding since the age of 2­years.<br />

Now aged 14, the Amberley Pony Club<br />

rider has enjoyed plenty of success in<br />

both show jumping and eventing with her<br />

horses Rosewood Zakee and Googleit.<br />

Zakee, a12­year­oldgrey Arab pony, is<br />

Grace’s eventing horse, while 10­year­old<br />

Googleit, ablack and white pony, is<br />

‘‘really speedy’’ making her agood show<br />

jumping horse.<br />

‘‘Zakee is really good at dressage and<br />

he’s kind of quick so he’s quite good at<br />

everything,’’ Grace says.<br />

‘‘He’s really honest and Ihave areally<br />

good bond with him.<br />

‘‘Googleit was tough to start with and<br />

struggled abit, but she’s really quick and<br />

she’s honest and she tries her best.’’<br />

Grace and Googleit won the pony class<br />

in the 2020/21 Dunstan Horsefeeds Show<br />

Jumping Circuit, acontest between the<br />

Amberley, Kaikoura, Waiau and Hurunui<br />

pony clubs and added anational pony<br />

rising star title at the show hunter<br />

nationals earlier this year.<br />

She was also part of the <strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

team with Zakee which won the eventing<br />

championships in Cromwell earlier this<br />

year, beating teams from all over the<br />

South Island and one <strong>North</strong> Island team.<br />

year Grace and Zakee will ride for the<br />

Kaiapoi Pony Club.<br />

‘‘We are honoured to be excepted into<br />

their pony club as Amberley doesn’t have<br />

ateam this year, but Amberley will<br />

always be my pony club,’’ Grace says.<br />

Grace’s father Giles has ridden in<br />

eventing at four­star level, while her<br />

mum Rachael has also ridden<br />

competitively.<br />

‘‘She is anatural in some ways, but she<br />

works bloody hard,’’ says proud mum<br />

Rachael.<br />

‘‘And she probably wouldn’t be where<br />

she is without Giles, he’s so good with<br />

her.’’<br />

‘‘He’s my coach,’’ Grace adds. ‘‘Even if<br />

he’s competing, he could be just off the<br />

course, but he will there be videoing me.’’<br />

Grace has just added ‘‘a new wee<br />

superstar’’ to her stable, with a3­year­old<br />

horse named Polly recently purchased<br />

from Amberley House.<br />

One day Grace says she wants to be like<br />

her father and ride at four­star level.<br />

Her ultimate goal would be to ride at<br />

the Olympic Games, or at the Burghley or<br />

Badminton horse trials. She also wants to<br />

be apolice officer or adairy farmer.<br />

For now she is in year 10 at Rangiora<br />

High School, where she won the year 9<br />

equestrian prize last year.<br />

Her advice to other young riders is<br />

simple.<br />

‘‘If you’ve got agoal, work real hard<br />

towards it and keep trying. Don’t give up.<br />

It’s worth it.’’<br />

the first half was loaded with errorsand<br />

backline.<br />

Planting day kicks off environmental project<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

The Waimakariri District<br />

Council’s Arohatia te awa<br />

(cherish the river) project has<br />

been launched with aplanting<br />

day in Tuahiwi.<br />

The council asked for<br />

community support at the<br />

planting day, which was held on<br />

public land alongside the Cam<br />

River on Saturday morning.<br />

Around 32 volunteers turned<br />

out and planted 1000 native<br />

seedlings at the site.<br />

The environmental project<br />

aims to involve residents in<br />

restoring the health of<br />

Waimakariri’s rivers and<br />

streams through riparian<br />

planting and also create asense<br />

of ownership for this natural<br />

resource by fostering<br />

connections with the<br />

environment.<br />

The council aims to create<br />

cycle and walk ways, and<br />

ecological corridors that raise<br />

awareness of this significant<br />

natural public asset, as well as<br />

providing safe spaces for<br />

people to exercise and transit.<br />

Saturday’s planting day was<br />

the first step in the planned<br />

network of ecological corridors<br />

which will be developed during<br />

the coming years as funding<br />

becomes available and will be<br />

incorporated into the wider<br />

plans of Waimakariri district<br />

walking and cycling networks.<br />

for parks and recreation, Mike<br />

Zealand was one of the most<br />

pressing issues facing the<br />

country.<br />

‘‘New Zealanders want to<br />

swim, fish, gather mahinga kai<br />

and enjoy fresh water as our<br />

parents and grandparents did,’’<br />

he said.<br />

‘‘We also need clean water to<br />

drink to both support our<br />

population’s health as well as a<br />

sustainable economy.<br />

‘‘Our freshwater ecosystems<br />

are suffering as aresult of<br />

urban development,<br />

Helping the environment ... Ohoka Primary School pupil Max Wood<br />

It is hoped that Arohatia te<br />

awa will help correct the<br />

damage done to the district's<br />

waterways.<br />

Mike said the idea for the<br />

project came from Waimakariri<br />

district Cr Sandra Stewart.<br />

‘‘She is the driving force<br />

behind the project,’’ he says.<br />

‘‘It was her vision and she was<br />

at the planting day last<br />

Saturday, welcoming<br />

volunteers to the site and<br />

helping them do the work.’’<br />

Challenges remain<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> farmers remainon<br />

‘‘a knife­edge’’,asongoing rain is<br />

stretching the feedsupplies on<br />

drought­stricken farms.<br />

Morethan two months on from the<br />

May 31 floodevent, <strong>Canterbury</strong> Rural<br />

AdvisoryGroup chairperson Winton<br />

Dalley says alack of quality feed is<br />

threatening the conditionofpregnant<br />

stock and mothers nurturing new born<br />

animals.<br />

While farmers seem to have escaped<br />

the recent threat of snow,the lack of<br />

quality feed continuestoleave farmers<br />

‘‘hanging by aknife­edge’’, Mr Dalley<br />

says.<br />

‘‘Somefarmershave reluctantly<br />

accepted thattheirusually high<br />

standard of stock is unrealistic,asno<br />

amount of expensive supplementary<br />

feeding can take the place of quality<br />

pasture and green fodder, especially<br />

for heavilypregnant stock.<br />

‘‘The autumn drought has caused this<br />

situation whichcannot be expected to<br />

be overcomeuntil well into spring.’’<br />

In recent weeks Mr Dalley has visited<br />

farmers throughout the Hurunui<br />

district to gaugethe extent of feed<br />

shortages.<br />

While some farmers in coastal areas<br />

haveexperienced some pasture growth<br />

due to the warmerthan normal soil<br />

temperatures, inland farmers have not<br />

beensolucky.<br />

‘‘For the coastalfarmers, the<br />

relatively mild weather has given them<br />

abit of alift,but there’s no substantial<br />

quantities of high quality pasture.<br />

‘‘The inland areas haven’t had much<br />

growth and there’s considerablymore<br />

concern for feed availability.’’<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> president Caroline Amyes<br />

sayswhile conditionsare more positive<br />

Challenging conditions ... Former Hurunui<br />

Mayor Winton Dalley is continuing to<br />

Studies stronglyassociate ahealthy gutwithabetter<br />

mood andsense of wellbeing.<br />

Youmay have heardofthe term ‘leakygut’, which<br />

describes theleakage of chemical compounds andtoxins<br />

from theintestine into thebrain. In ahealthydigestive<br />

system, theintestine wall acts as agatekeeperand allows<br />

only theabsorptionofwaterand nutrientswhile keeping<br />

out harmful compounds.<br />

When theintestinalwall becomesdamaged,toxins<br />

leak into thebloodstream andcross into thebrain and<br />

nervoussystem. Depressionoccursdue to an imbalance<br />

of thebrainchemical serotonin. But90% of the<br />

serotonin in thebrain is producedinthe digestive tract.<br />

Also,studies showalinkbetween chronic gutproblems<br />

outcomes.<br />

Farmers not surprised<br />

Thereare ‘‘no surprises’’ for <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> farmers in last week’s Overseer<br />

report.<br />

Federated Farmers <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

presidentCaroline Amyes says the findings<br />

of the recent review of the nutrientloss<br />

modelling toolOverseer,conducted by the<br />

Ministries for the Environment and<br />

Primary Industries, were consistentwith<br />

what farmers alreadyknew.<br />

‘‘We don’t wantinput controls, so<br />

Overseer has been usefulinthat regard.We<br />

have always known that there hasbeen<br />

some challenges, so havingitasa<br />

regulatorytool has been achallenge.<br />

‘‘Thefeedback from farmers so far has<br />

been:‘we are not verysurprised’.<br />

‘‘We willwait and see whatregulations<br />

come out of this and what Overseer 2looks<br />

like.’’<br />

DairyNZ strategy and investment leader<br />

Dr David Burger says science­based<br />

managementand modelling reviews, such<br />

as the recentGovernment report into<br />

Overseer, helps improvenutrient<br />

managementfor the environment and farm<br />

businesses.<br />

‘‘Overseerisvital in helpingfarmers, the<br />

sector and councils understand farm<br />

management, particularly nutrient and<br />

greenhouse gas losses to the environment.<br />

‘‘Therefore, we must have ahigh levelof<br />

confidence in it as atool.<br />

‘‘It’s pleasing Government is committed<br />

to supporting Overseer and aredevelopment,<br />

while lookingatother tools to<br />

improve nutrient management and on­farm<br />

outcomes.’’<br />

Dr Burgersaid DairyNZ research shows<br />

nitrate leaching measurementsfrom farm<br />

system experimentsare generally wellaligned<br />

with Overseer predictionswhere<br />

actual climate data has been used on dairy<br />

land.<br />

‘‘Ourresearch and experiencewith<br />

farmers tells us Overseer is an important<br />

tool for helpingdairy farmers manage<br />

nitrogenand reducelosses from farms.<br />

‘‘Falling back on input controls or<br />

Caroline Amyes<br />

reliance on risk factors is not an adequate<br />

substitute for output modelling, especially<br />

when we haveanincreasingly<br />

sophisticated range of nitrogen<br />

managementoptions that Overseer enables<br />

farmers to model.<br />

‘‘Farm systems are complex and there<br />

are arange of waysfarmerscan reduce<br />

theirfootprint.Overseer allows farmers to<br />

modeldifferent options in the contextof<br />

theirfarm system –enabling innovation<br />

and flexibility.’’<br />

Greenpeace lead agriculture campaigner<br />

Christine Rose says the reportundermines<br />

confidence in the system that has<br />

supported dairy conversions and<br />

intensification.<br />

‘‘Because Overseer has been used to<br />

defend the overapplicationofsynthetic<br />

nitrogenfertiliser and has beenembedded<br />

in resourceconsents,the wholedairy<br />

modeland its environmental impacts are a<br />

houseofcards.<br />

‘‘Instead of relying on an industrytool<br />

that does abad jobofmeasuring nitrate<br />

pollution as it seeps into rivers or<br />

contaminates people’s drinking water,the<br />

Governmentmust deal to the problemat<br />

source by phasing out polluting synthetic<br />

nitrogenfertiliser altogether.’’<br />

Covenant ... Around 180,000 hectares of private land has been placed in QEII National<br />

Trust covenants.<br />

QE2 Trust funding boost<br />

FederatedFarmersisrelieved to see the<br />

government put more money towards the<br />

Queen ElizabethIINationalTrust, to help<br />

landowner endeavours to protect and<br />

enhance areas of special native<br />

biodiversityonprivately owned land.<br />

Conservation Minister KiriAllan<br />

recentlypledged $8 million to go to the<br />

Jobs forNature programme.<br />

This shouldallow the QEIITrustto<br />

increasethe number of sites protectedby<br />

covenants by 264 duringthe next four<br />

years.<br />

Morethan4600 unbreakable covenants<br />

havebeenestablished since <strong>19</strong>77, covering<br />

180,000 hectares of privateland.<br />

FederatedFarmersboardmember and<br />

environment spokespersonChris Allen<br />

saysthe willingness of landowners to<br />

voluntarily covenant and protect privately<br />

owned properties haslong exceededthe<br />

ability forQEII to meet demand.<br />

‘‘Thisissoundinvestmentand<br />

partnershipbythe government.QEIIisan<br />

entitytrusted and respected by farmers,<br />

andalthough the covenants involve<br />

protection of specialsitesinperpetuityit<br />

remains avoluntary initiative.<br />

‘‘It’suptolandownerstodecide if<br />

applying to the trust provides thebest<br />

‘‘Biodiversity, climatechange andwater<br />

to help incentivisenative plantingand<br />

protection can provide multi­faceted<br />

solutions.’’<br />

Placing acovenant on apieceofland<br />

says.<br />

Having additionalJobs for Nature<br />

assistancewill enable greaterrestoration<br />

‘‘We remindgovernmentthatthis is a<br />

COVID-<strong>19</strong> Delays Rubbish Bag Supply<br />

As supply chain disruptions continue worldwide,<br />

shipping delays of more than four months has<br />

forced the Council to find atemporary solution for<br />

thesupplyoftie-handle WaimakaririDistrict Council<br />

branded rubbish bags.<br />

The tie-handle bags are supplied by a<br />

Christchurch-based firm but are produced by an<br />

overseas manufacturer, and the disruptions mean<br />

they likely won’tarrive inthe country for another<br />

four to six months.<br />

“We’ve been working with our local supplier to make<br />

ashort term supply of bags that will tide us over for<br />

the next few months”, says Council’s Solid Waste<br />

Asset Manager Kitty Waghorn.<br />

The temporary bags have aperforated tear-off<br />

tie. They are the same as those used before the<br />

Council moved totie-handle bags, and are the<br />

same volume and price.<br />

The Council movedtotie-handle bags more than ten<br />

yearsago,due to feedbackfromboththecommunity<br />

and Council collection contractors that the tear-off<br />

tiebagswere difficulttohandle. Thetie oen popped<br />

off, spillingrubbish onthestreet, andwere difficult to<br />

wrap around afull rubbish bag.<br />

The Council acknowledges that the tie bags are<br />

more difficult to handle when they are full, and<br />

anticipate moving back to the tie-handle bags as<br />

soon asstock arrives.<br />

“To make it alittle easier to use the tie-top bags,<br />

we ask residents not to over-fill them. Over-filling<br />

definitely makes itmore likely that the tie will<br />

come off when they’re being carried to the kerb<br />

and also during pick up”, says Kitty.<br />

While the Council waits for the temporary bags to<br />

arrive, residents may see blue bags with aCouncil<br />

logo stickeratthe supermarkets andCouncilServices<br />

where bags can be purchased. These will cost the<br />

sameasthe tie-handle bags, andcan be usedinthe<br />

same way as our usual Council-branded bags.<br />
