ASunday stroll

By DAVID HILL AND ROBYN BRISTOW

North Canterbury’s councils are

remaining firm on their

commitmenttoconsulttheir

communities on theGovernment’s

proposedThree Waters Reforms

beforedecidingwhethertoopt in

or out.

But they believe central

government may change the Local

Government Act2002,toremove

any requirement for themtoengage

withtheir communities.

Thiscomes as the Government

pushesonwith itsproposal to

transfer the managementofthe

three waters —drinking water,

waste water andstormwater—

from67councils nationwide, to

fourlargeentitieswithone

covering mostofthe South Island.

The WaimakaririDistrict Council

is thefirstout of the blocks, with

consultation under waythis week

and open untilSeptember 5, while

the HurunuiDistrict Council is

consulting informally withits

community.

Moreformal consultation willbe

heldafterOctober 1, when the

Government firmsupits proposal.

govt.nz/letstalk.

‘‘The council’s position remains

that, basedonthe limited

information presented so far, we do

not jointhe Government’s reform

programmeatthis point,’’Mayor

Dan Gordon says.

‘‘Weare notconvinced thatthere

are benefits for the Waimakariri

community, butimportantly we

need to hear fromthe community

before reachingaformal decision.’’

The council haswritten to the

Department of InternalAffairs with

28 questions,but hasyet to receive

aresponse ­even thoughone was

promised two weeks ago,Mr

Gordon says.

‘‘We allagree that quality

drinking water and environmental

outcomes are agoodthingfor the

country.’’

Waimakariri’sconcerns include

‘‘fair compensation’’for these

public assets, theaccuracyof

Government projections,future

costs to ratepayers,planning coordination,

local representation,

responsivenessduring natural

disasters and the paceofthe

reformprocess.

‘‘At themoment we think thereis

only one­sidebeingpresented and

we wantlocals to understand what

thesereformscouldmean for them

if we take partinthiswater reform

process,’’MrGordon says.

HurunuiDistrict Council chief

executive HamishDobbie saysa

placeoverthe proposed water

reforms.

Apaper willbegoing to council at

‘‘UnderCouncil’sSignificant

‘‘When we moved from response

‘‘Some of those projectsare

pretty big, particularly around

roading repairs which will cost

around $2 million,sowith the three

The council is continuing to

to see what level of funding support

is available, while its insurance

to Waimakariri.

‘‘Weare mindful it was nowhere

In contrast to the rural areas,

urban areas held up well to the

‘‘Therewere someareas where

Cust River stopbank upgrade to cost $75,000

By SHELLEY TOPP

ACust River stopbank alongside

O’Roarkes Road in Fernside is

being upgraded by Environment

Canterbury at acost of $75,000.

The stopbankisbeing rebuilt

to achieve better flood

protection.

ECan’srivers manager Leigh

Griffiths says it is beinglifted to

the sameheight as the trueright

bank, withthe riverside batter

being rebuilt.

This is to reduce risk of

erosion and make matinenance

easier.

The upgrade is being done to a

section of the stopbank which

had rottentrees and roots

running through it. Workisalso

being donetoimprove the site’s

safetyand numerous cracked

willows withinthe road reserve

have been felled.

‘‘These trees posedarisk to

cars entering or exiting the

previous carpark as theycaused

blind spots,’’’ Ms Griffiths says.

The work is being completed

as part of awider projectto

improve parking on the site and

extend the existing native

planting block. New fencing is

planned along the O’Roarkes

Road side of the upgraded area.

‘‘We understand that

earthworkssuch as this can look

messy, particularlywhen

undertaken in winter,but we

believe thatthese stopbank and

amenity upgrades willgreatly

improve the area and the

communitywill like it once it is

completed.’’

The work is likelytobe

completedbythe end of the

month or early September.

The upgrade doesnot include

plans to removethe white bridge

at the O’Roarkes Road end of

BridgeRoad which was closedto

vehicles about 10 years ago, but

is still used by pedestrians and

cyclists.

The bridge is aWaimakariri

District Council roading asset.

The council’s roadingand

transport manager on this

project, Joanne McBride, says

the council had not been

approached by ECan with any

concerns aboutthe bridge and

the council has no plans to

removeit.

Eventful Hurunui to

host free workshop

The board of Eventful Hurunui is

hosting afree workshop on Monday,

August 30, at The Better Half Leithfield

at 6pm, with Jon Holmes of Events Goals.

Jon will introduce participants to

practical information on how to make

certain your event is successful.

If you want to make your next event a

great success your registration is

welcome on www.eventfulhurunui.co.

nz/eventful­workshops.

Numbers are limited to Hurunui

residents and we look forward to your

attendance.

Events and activities across our

district provide the opportunity for

social cohesion, which is critical for our

wellbeing, the volunteer contribution to

hosting events is significant across our

district and many of these attributes

were celebrated at the annual Hurunui

District community service awards.

Guest speaker Trish Coleman spoke

about the valueofcontribution and

volunteering.

As humans we are‘socialanimals’, our

relationships with others contribute to

feeling good. It’s important to socially

connect with others where we can and

developing healthy relationships can

increase our feelings of happiness,

security, belonging and self­worth.

Scientific studies showthat helping

others boosts happiness, improves our

mood andreduces stressand is likely to

take our mindsoff our own concerns.

Ihave had the privilegeofattending

the annual St John’s volunteer dinner

and several Fire and Emergency NZ

awards ceremonies, these eventshave

celebrated many of our community

members whohave given 100’s of hours

collectively to the wellbeing of our

district.

Being called avolunteer is aprecious

title, one that is admired as it is through

volunteering the true value of serviceto

the community is demonstrated —we

are fortunate to live in acommunity that

values these involvements.

‘‘Together Hurunui’’is aforumthat

provides collaboration for social service

providers to come together on abimonthly

basis with the vision ‘‘thatall

people in the Hurunui are valued and

connected’’.

This network encourages

participation to ensure successful

outcomes for individuals and

communities, it also has been

instrumental in advocating and

supporting positive outcomes for health

and wellbeing in the district.

To all of you who create events both

commercial and not for profit –thank

you for making the Hurunui agreat

place to live, to visit and enjoy.

Spring is just around the corner and

that means ahost of events will be

happening for us to enjoy.

Climate change

and killing cows

By BRUCE FRAMPTON,OXFORD

Fellow New Zealander’s, it’s not

governments, conglomerates, virtue

signalling political leaders or people

writing endlessdoom and gloomarticles

that will savethis planet.

No, it is you and me and the hundredsof

millionsofpeople around the worldthat

could, if we wanted to, save the planetfrom

further degradation.

Latest researchbyRhodium Group

reports thatChina,India and the USA emit

around 45% of theworld’s greenhouse

gasses.

Chinaalone emits more greenhouse gas

than the entiredeveloped world

combined. Central to this is China,India

and the USA’s reliance on coalfired power

stations.

This energy is used to produce goods

whichhas fuelledrampant consumerism

polluting the world’s atmosphere and

filling our oceans with country sized

islands of plastic. Floating in the Pacific

We, the peoplewho buy these goods,can

send amarket drivenmessage that would

forcethe demise of coalburningpower

stations used for manufacture.The effect

this wouldhave on the world’s climate is

no better illustrated than what thecovid

lockdowns achieved for the planet’s health

in such afleeting space of time last year.

Governments and interested

corporationsare notgoing to stoppeople

buying the latesttelevisions,smart phones,

computers, fashion clothing, countless

plastic goods and throwaway bling these

countries produce.

Free trades agreements, overwhelming

political pressureand business bottom

lines will stop this solution from ever being

seriously consideredand the reasonswhy

will be trumpetedlong and loud by the

corporateowned media. We the people are

the problemand we the peoplecan be the

solution.Make adecision, the welfare and

continuation of lifeasweknowit, or an

unstoppableplunge into an abyss of

endless adverse weather events.

Are we going to have afutureofGreta

that reducing New Zealand’scontribution

of greenhouse gasesof0.17 percent (yes

that’sright) less than 1/5thof1%will

somehow save the world?

We could killall the cowsinNew

Zealand, drive electric cars, do everything

we can to reduce our carbon footprint here

in New Zealand and this will save the

world from the worst of extremes of

climate change? Yeahright!

If the governmentsofthe worldare

Dear Editor,

Nurses needtobepaid more –all

nurses, whoeverfunds them.

Nurses needworkingconditions that

are safe and supported –all nurses,

whoever employs them. DHB nurses are

currently fightingfor what seems like anobrainer–pay

and conditions that respect

and enhance the manaoftheircohort.But

what of nurses who aren’tdirectly

employedbythe DHB’s?

Wheredoes it leave them? Particularly

thoseworking in not­for­profitand

community­basedsettings? Those that

provide safetyand services for our older

people?

Bus pupil safety concerns grow

Schoolbus driver Becky Black is very

aware of the preciouscargoshe has on

board for her daily schoolbus route.

Butshe, and otherschool busdrivers in

theHurunuidistrict, arebecoming

increasinglyconcerned aboutthe safety

of pupils,particularlythe speed vehicles

pass schoolbuses dropping off, or picking

up pupils.

Becky,who does the Amberley busrun

to HurunuiCollege,says people do not

sticktothe speed limit of 20 kph,when

buses arestopped,picking up or dropping

offstudents.

‘‘They just flypastme. It’sconcerning

because childrencan be so unpredictable

aroundroads.”

Schoolbus driverPeterBlack,who

does the HanmerSprings run encounters

similarissues.

“Ifitwas their childrenor

grandchildrenonthe bus, maybe they

wouldbehave differently.

‘‘Childrensometimes runout on to the

road to greet their parents or friends.

‘‘We try to prevent this, but we need

peopletoslowdown.”

Following distances by othervehicles is

also aproblem,Peter and Becky say.

“Onthe openroad whenthere is a

queue following closely, thepressure is

on to let them past,’’Peter says.

Often driver impatience sawsomeone

“I havewitnessed many near misses

HurunuiDistrict Council’s Road Safety

co­ordinator Dean Eades says there are

some simple and effectivesafetytipsfor

“Safety is themost important issueon

ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT’S

THREE WATERS REFORM

Will Water Reform Benefit Waimakariri?

The Government is proposing that three water (drinking

water, wastewater and stormwater) services move from

the 67 councils who currently manage these, into four

large entities.

If the reform goes ahead, Waimakariri District would become

part ofanentity that covers most of the South Island. The

Government has given councils until the end of September to

provide feedback onthe proposal.

Quality drinking water and better environmental outcomes are

agood thing for the country.

But we’re not clear yet whether the Government’s proposed

Three Waters Reform is the best way to achieve this, and

what the advantages are for our District.

We want to know what’s important toour community and hear

what you think.

Find out more about the Government’s Three Waters Reform

and share your thoughts by 5pm, Sunday 5September.

Climate change on

Hurunui programme

By SHELLEY TOPP

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate

Change’s latest report warns that climate

changeiswidespread, accelerating, and

poses asevere risk to people and

ecosystems.

Initiatives are beingput in place

aroundthe worldtolimit global warming.

but they need to accelerate, the report

warns.

In 2015 two of North Canterbury’s

mayorsatthat time, Waimakariri’s David

Ayers and Kaikoura’sWinstonGray,

joined other New Zealand mayorsand

chairs in signing the Local Government

Leaders’ Climate Change Declarationto

acknowledge ``the importance and

urgent need to address climate change

for the benefit of current and future

generations.’’

AlthoughHurunui Mayor at that time,

WintonDalley, did not sign the 2015

declaration his successor Marie Black

says the Hurunui District Council is

working to address climate change.

‘‘Within our StrategicPlan, and

consideringour position as a

predominantly rural council, the changes

of water patterns and prolonged periods

of drought has meant that waterstorage

is something we are very conscious of,’’

she says.

‘‘We are currently working on climate

changeadaptationswhichimpact on

water availability for the District’s inland

areas.’’

Marie is amember of the Climate

ChangeSteeringGroup as part of the

Canterbury Mayoral Forum, where ideas

on how to approach climate changeare

regularly discussed and the Hurunui

District Councilispart of It’s Time

Canterbury,whichisaCanterbury­wide

website aligned with neighbouring

districtcouncils and Environment

Canterbury, to talktothe region about

climate change.

Marieacknowledges thatthe Hurunui

communityhas avarietyofviews on

climate change.

However, she says ‘‘our focus is on

working with peoplewho are keentodo

theirbit,’’and significantclimate­change

initiatives have been achieved in the

district.

Theseincludethe launch of aprojectto

trackthe council’s carbon footprint.

‘‘Themost recent development has

been the installationofsolar panelson

our councilbuildinginAmberley,’’ she

says.

New initiativesaroundactive

transport, drainage and drinking water

reliability havealso been put in place,

and trail networks for walking and

cycling are beingdeveloped.

‘‘We are improving the capacity of our

stormwaternetwork to ensure our

communities are better protectedfrom

largerainfallevents and we are currently

looking to find additional groundwater

sources that are less influenced by

seasonal or climate change patterns.’’

The council is also workingwith its

localcommunitiesdeveloping long­term

plansfor coastal development that suit

the individual desires of each settlement.

River in the spotlight

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Restoring the natural character of the

Waipara River, planting natives along its

banks, and encouraging the return of

wildlife, are the aims of the newly

formed Waipara Catchment Rivercare

group.

The group also wants to ensure a

healthy environment which can be

enjoyed by walkers and families.

Removing willow trees from the

riverbed, controlling old man’s beard,

and other invasive weeds, are top of the

group’s list, along with atrapping

programme for animal pests, restricting

vehicle access in the river, and planting

natives are actions put forward at a

recent meeting to help achieve the

group’s aims.

Group facilitator, Rima Herber, says

the one representative of the 4WD

community made it clear there were

many who would object to being

excluded from driving in the riverbed as

it was avery valued form of recreation

among off­road vehicle drivers.

Twenty seven people attended the

meeting with several apologies, she said,

with people expressing their

commitment to work to restore the river,

and acknowledging it would be alongterm

undertaking.

Andrew Arps, the North Canterbury

Zone Manager from ECan, told the group

awillow control programme will begin

in September to clear willows from the

main channel of the Waipara River from

half akilometre above the state highway

bridge down to the sea.

The willow trees will be cut down and

removed, and the regrowth sprayed at a

later date.

Waipara River ... Willows will be targeted

during an ECan programme beginning next

month.

PHOTO: SUPPLIED

It was agreed to create three small

working groups to tackle specific issues

—willows, old man’s beard and

recreational vehicles. These groups will

meet monthly.

The next Waipara Catchment

Rivercare Group meeting will be held at

7pm on Tuesday, August 24, in the

Waipara Pavilion, at the Glenmark

Reserve. Leigh Love, alocal fossil

expert, will give apresentation. Mr Love

discovered fossils of birds previously

unknown to science, in the river. One

bears his name, Australornis lovei.

Students shape future of sport

By DAVID HILL

Two Rangiora High School pupils

are helping to shape New Zealand’s

future Olympians.

JadeKruger and Paris Karaka

are serving on national sports

committees to sharethe viewsof

young people participating in sport.

Bothare highachieving sports

people in their own right,with Paris

having been selected for the New

Zealand under­18 women’s touch

squad, the Canterburywomen’s

senior netballteam and also plays

volleyball.

Jadeplays football, participates

in athletics, is keen to playrugby

sevens and her goal is to represent

New Zealand in the 100 metre and

200 metresprints.

Paris, who is in year 12, is one of

just13pupils serving on the

inaugural School SportNew

Zealand Student Athlete

Commission(SAC)and will be

attendinganationalsports

conference in Rotoruanext month

as part of her role.

‘‘Our focus is to make sports

better andtoencourage more

participation.’’

Ayear 13 pupil, Jade is serving on

the New ZealandSportCoaching

Advisory Committee, which

includes justtwo secondary school

students fromaround the country to

suggestimprovements for coaches.

‘‘Wecontributetoshapingthe

directionofcoaching, identifying

problems and finding solutions.’’

Among the topicsdiscussed are

how to attract more young peopleto

playsport, the pressuresonyoung

sports people and ‘‘Balance is

traction in secondary schools

aroundthe country, which

encourages cultural changeand

promotes moreyouth participation

in sport, Jade says.

‘‘Balance is Betterisused alot

more in schools in the North Island

and they’vefound they have so

many more kids participation

because it’s more fun.

‘‘One school stopped playing

15­a­side rugby and changed to

sevensand foundthey had more

kids participating becausethey all

get to pass the ballinagame, so it’s

more fun and they’restill

developing the skills.’’

Many young people just want to

play with theirfriends, butasthey

get older and move up the ranks the

pressurescan become more

intense,Paris says.

‘‘I think that’s why lotsofyoung

people drop out, because it gets so

seriousand you have other

priorities, like an after school job

and NCEA.

‘‘Thecommitmentisahuge

thing.’’

Part of the challengeisthe

different expectations between

coaches and players from different

generations andupbringings.

One of thepressures for Paris is

she knows she needs to focus on one

sportifshe wants to progress to the

top level.

Jade hopes to study psychology

and sportsscience next year, while

Parisisinterested in joining the

army or the police.

Temporary rubbish bags

As supply chain disruptions continue

worldwide,shipping delays have forced a

temporary solution for the supply of tiehandle

Waimakariri District Council

brandedrubbish bags.

The tie­handle bags are supplied by a

Christchurch­based firm,but are produced

by an overseas manufacturer and the

disruptions mean they are unlikely to

arrive in the country for anotherfour to six

months.

‘‘We’vebeen working with our local

supplier to make ashort term supply of

bags that will tie us over for the next few

months,’’ solidwaste asset manager Kitty

Waghorn says.

The temporary bags have aperforated

tear­off tie and are the sameasthose used

before the councilmoved to tie­handle

bags, and are the same volumeand price as

tie­handlebags.

The council movedtotie­handle bags

more than ten years ago, due to feedback

from both the community and the council’s

collection contractors that the tear­off tie

bags were difficult to handle.

The tie often popped off, spilling rubbish

on the street, and were difficult to wrap

around afull rubbish bag.

The tie­handlebags were originally

manufactured locally, but the manufacture

has moved off­shore due to low demand

across the country for this styleofbag.

The council acknowledges that the tie

bags are more difficult to handle when they

are full, and anticipate movingback to the

tie­handle bags as soon as stock arrives, Ms

Waghorn says.

‘‘To make it alittle easier to use the tietop

bags, we ask residentsnot to over­fill

them.

‘‘Over­filling definitely makes it more

likely that the tie will come off when they’re

being carried to the kerb and also during

pick up.’’

While the councilwaits for the temporary

bags to arrive,residents may seeblue bags

with acouncillogo sticker at the

supermarkets and council services where

bags can be purchased.

Rubbishbags work on auser pays basis,

and the cost of abag coversmanufacturing

of the bag, kerbside collection and landfill

disposal.

All clear ... Grace Gormack (14) and Googleit clear afence.

Amberley’srising star

By DAVID HILL

Rising star Grace Gormack has been

riding since the age of 2­years.

Now aged 14, the Amberley Pony Club

rider has enjoyed plenty of success in

both show jumping and eventing with her

horses Rosewood Zakee and Googleit.

Zakee, a12­year­oldgrey Arab pony, is

Grace’s eventing horse, while 10­year­old

Googleit, ablack and white pony, is

‘‘really speedy’’ making her agood show

jumping horse.

‘‘Zakee is really good at dressage and

he’s kind of quick so he’s quite good at

everything,’’ Grace says.

‘‘He’s really honest and Ihave areally

good bond with him.

‘‘Googleit was tough to start with and

struggled abit, but she’s really quick and

she’s honest and she tries her best.’’

Grace and Googleit won the pony class

in the 2020/21 Dunstan Horsefeeds Show

Jumping Circuit, acontest between the

Amberley, Kaikoura, Waiau and Hurunui

pony clubs and added anational pony

rising star title at the show hunter

nationals earlier this year.

She was also part of the Canterbury

team with Zakee which won the eventing

championships in Cromwell earlier this

year, beating teams from all over the

South Island and one North Island team.

Next up is the Springston Trophy being

held in Southland from October 7to10.

year Grace and Zakee will ride for the

Kaiapoi Pony Club.

‘‘We are honoured to be excepted into

their pony club as Amberley doesn’t have

ateam this year, but Amberley will

always be my pony club,’’ Grace says.

Grace’s father Giles has ridden in

eventing at four­star level, while her

mum Rachael has also ridden

competitively.

‘‘She is anatural in some ways, but she

works bloody hard,’’ says proud mum

Rachael.

‘‘And she probably wouldn’t be where

she is without Giles, he’s so good with

her.’’

‘‘He’s my coach,’’ Grace adds. ‘‘Even if

he’s competing, he could be just off the

course, but he will there be videoing me.’’

Grace has just added ‘‘a new wee

superstar’’ to her stable, with a3­year­old

horse named Polly recently purchased

from Amberley House.

One day Grace says she wants to be like

her father and ride at four­star level.

Her ultimate goal would be to ride at

the Olympic Games, or at the Burghley or

Badminton horse trials. She also wants to

be apolice officer or adairy farmer.

For now she is in year 10 at Rangiora

High School, where she won the year 9

equestrian prize last year.

Her advice to other young riders is

simple.

‘‘If you’ve got agoal, work real hard

towards it and keep trying. Don’t give up.

It’s worth it.’’

Loss for NC rugby

RUGBY

By LINDSAY KERR

A14­3 losstoaCanterburyMaori sidemight

Canterbury’s annualrugby fixture against

Ellesmere.

But the game was closerthan the

scoreboard indicatedand it alsogave the

selectors the opportunitytotry different

player combinations from that which ran

out theweek before againstBuller.

Two tries to the Maori, one three minutes

into the firsthalf and the other with halftime

beckoningproved the difference.

The first of these tries resulted from an

opportunisticintercept whenNorth

Canterburywas hot on attackand lookingto

score.

The North Canterbury performance in

the first half was loaded with errorsand

lost opportunities. The forwards struggled

25

up front and gaps regularly appeared in the

backline.

The secondhalf produced an improved

performance, withastiffened defence line

and aforward pack that refused to be

outmuscled.

North Canterbury was well lead by

captainJosh Maynard fromnumbereight

and standout performancescamefrom

lockAlex Kennedy and blind side loosie

Jessie Houston.

Brook Retallick’s positionalkicking was

accurate and he kicked apenalty.

Fullback Digby Heard looked for work at

every opportunity.

In addition to the gameagainst

Ellesmere, North Canterburywill also play

aCantabriansXVthis Saturday and Otago

Planting day kicks off environmental project

By SHELLEY TOPP

The Waimakariri District

Council’s Arohatia te awa

The council asked for

Around 32 volunteers turned

out and planted 1000 native

The environmental project

Challenges remain

By DAVID HILL

North Canterbury farmers remainon

‘‘a knife­edge’’,asongoing rain is

stretching the feedsupplies on

drought­stricken farms.

Morethan two months on from the

May 31 floodevent, Canterbury Rural

AdvisoryGroup chairperson Winton

Dalley says alack of quality feed is

threatening the conditionofpregnant

stock and mothers nurturing new born

animals.

While farmers seem to have escaped

the recent threat of snow,the lack of

quality feed continuestoleave farmers

‘‘hanging by aknife­edge’’, Mr Dalley

says.

‘‘Somefarmershave reluctantly

accepted thattheirusually high

standard of stock is unrealistic,asno

amount of expensive supplementary

feeding can take the place of quality

pasture and green fodder, especially

for heavilypregnant stock.

‘‘The autumn drought has caused this

situation whichcannot be expected to

be overcomeuntil well into spring.’’

In recent weeks Mr Dalley has visited

farmers throughout the Hurunui

district to gaugethe extent of feed

shortages.

While some farmers in coastal areas

haveexperienced some pasture growth

due to the warmerthan normal soil

temperatures, inland farmers have not

beensolucky.

‘‘For the coastalfarmers, the

relatively mild weather has given them

abit of alift,but there’s no substantial

quantities of high quality pasture.

‘‘The inland areas haven’t had much

growth and there’s considerablymore

concern for feed availability.’’

Tool review ... Overseer is an agricultural management tool that assists in examining

nutrient use and movements within afarm to optimise production and environmental

outcomes.

PHOTO: FILE

Farmers not surprised

Thereare ‘‘no surprises’’ for North

Canterbury farmers in last week’s Overseer

report.

Federated Farmers North Canterbury

presidentCaroline Amyes says the findings

of the recent review of the nutrientloss

modelling toolOverseer,conducted by the

Ministries for the Environment and

Primary Industries, were consistentwith

what farmers alreadyknew.

‘‘We don’t wantinput controls, so

Overseer has been usefulinthat regard.We

have always known that there hasbeen

some challenges, so havingitasa

regulatorytool has been achallenge.

‘‘Thefeedback from farmers so far has

been:‘we are not verysurprised’.

‘‘We willwait and see whatregulations

come out of this and what Overseer 2looks

like.’’

DairyNZ strategy and investment leader

Dr David Burger says science­based

managementand modelling reviews, such

as the recentGovernment report into

Overseer, helps improvenutrient

managementfor the environment and farm

businesses.

‘‘Overseerisvital in helpingfarmers, the

sector and councils understand farm

management, particularly nutrient and

greenhouse gas losses to the environment.

‘‘Therefore, we must have ahigh levelof

confidence in it as atool.

‘‘It’s pleasing Government is committed

to supporting Overseer and aredevelopment,

while lookingatother tools to

improve nutrient management and on­farm

outcomes.’’

Dr Burgersaid DairyNZ research shows

nitrate leaching measurementsfrom farm

system experimentsare generally wellaligned

with Overseer predictionswhere

actual climate data has been used on dairy

land.

‘‘Ourresearch and experiencewith

farmers tells us Overseer is an important

tool for helpingdairy farmers manage

nitrogenand reducelosses from farms.

‘‘Falling back on input controls or

Caroline Amyes

reliance on risk factors is not an adequate

substitute for output modelling, especially

when we haveanincreasingly

sophisticated range of nitrogen

managementoptions that Overseer enables

farmers to model.

‘‘Farm systems are complex and there

are arange of waysfarmerscan reduce

theirfootprint.Overseer allows farmers to

modeldifferent options in the contextof

theirfarm system –enabling innovation

and flexibility.’’

Greenpeace lead agriculture campaigner

Christine Rose says the reportundermines

confidence in the system that has

supported dairy conversions and

intensification.

‘‘Because Overseer has been used to

defend the overapplicationofsynthetic

nitrogenfertiliser and has beenembedded

in resourceconsents,the wholedairy

modeland its environmental impacts are a

houseofcards.

‘‘Instead of relying on an industrytool

that does abad jobofmeasuring nitrate

pollution as it seeps into rivers or

contaminates people’s drinking water,the

Governmentmust deal to the problemat

source by phasing out polluting synthetic

nitrogenfertiliser altogether.’’

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

Trust covenants.

QE2 Trust funding boost

FederatedFarmersisrelieved to see the

government put more money towards the

Queen ElizabethIINationalTrust, to help

landowner endeavours to protect and

enhance areas of special native

biodiversityonprivately owned land.

Conservation Minister KiriAllan

recentlypledged $8 million to go to the

Jobs forNature programme.

This shouldallow the QEIITrustto

increasethe number of sites protectedby

covenants by 264 duringthe next four

years.

Morethan4600 unbreakable covenants

havebeenestablished since 1977, covering

180,000 hectares of privateland.

FederatedFarmersboardmember and

environment spokespersonChris Allen

saysthe willingness of landowners to

voluntarily covenant and protect privately

owned properties haslong exceededthe

ability forQEII to meet demand.

‘‘Thisissoundinvestmentand

partnershipbythe government.QEIIisan

entitytrusted and respected by farmers,

andalthough the covenants involve

protection of specialsitesinperpetuityit

remains avoluntary initiative.

‘‘It’suptolandownerstodecide if

applying to the trust provides thebest

opportunitiesfor theirland.

‘‘Biodiversity, climatechange andwater

qualityare integratedissues,and funding

to help incentivisenative plantingand

protection can provide multi­faceted

solutions.’’

Placing acovenant on apieceofland

essentiallyprotectsitforever, Mr Allen

says.

Having additionalJobs for Nature

assistancewill enable greaterrestoration

opportunitiesfor privatelyowned land

with highbiodiversity.

‘‘We remindgovernmentthatthis is a

great first step, but more incentives and

support will be neededifthey truly want

NewZealand to meet its biodiversity

objectives, giventhe high costs associated

with that activemanagementand

protection,including fencingand pest/

weed control.’’

Federated Farmers hopes the

governmentdoesn’tjust see this as afouryearproject,

andthatitwill remain

committed to helpinglandowners

maintain special biodiversity areas on

privatelyowned land,for thegood of the

entirecommunity,MrAllensays.

Chopper missions increase

Canterbury’s Westpac Rescue

Helicopter recorded a40percent

increase in mission numbersfor the first

six monthsofthisyear, reflecting afocus

on fastertreatment and better patient

outcomes.

The new helipad at Christchurch

Hospital, which cantake two choppers

at atime,has been agamechanger for

the service withmore than500 landings

since it opened last November,chief

executive Christine Princesays.

Canterbury based crew flew404

missions betweenJanuary 1and June

30, compared with289 forthe same

periodlastyear.

Lastmonth sawawhopping 97

missions acrossCanterburyand the

WestCoast, including eight missionsin

one day,withthe majoritybeing

classified as accidents and medical

emergencies.

‘‘The Covid lockdown could account

for someofthe overall increase when

we compareagainstthe previousyear,

but the increase is an ongoingtrend. By

thistimelast year lockdownwas over

and theincrease has continued

strongly,’’ Ms Prince says.

In one weekend this month crew

respondedtoeight missionsacross the

region,includingcardiac,maternity,

severalinter­hospitaltransfers and

accidents, shesays.

‘‘Asanticipated,mission numbers

haveincreasedthiswinter, withmore

people travelling locally andan

increased risk of accidentinjuriesand

medicalmissionsinthe coldermonths.

‘‘Intrauma cases, such as road

accidentsand medical emergencies,

getting emergency treatment to a

patientatthe scene within60minutesof

an incident increases thepatient’s

chanceofmaking afullrecoverybyover

80%.Inremote and hard­to­reach areas,

the rescue helicopter service can mean

the differencebetween lifeand death.’’

COVID-19 Delays Rubbish Bag Supply

As supply chain disruptions continue worldwide,

shipping delays of more than four months has

forced the Council to find atemporary solution for

thesupplyoftie-handle WaimakaririDistrict Council

branded rubbish bags.

The tie-handle bags are supplied by a

Christchurch-based firm but are produced by an

overseas manufacturer, and the disruptions mean

they likely won’tarrive inthe country for another

four to six months.

“We’ve been working with our local supplier to make

ashort term supply of bags that will tide us over for

the next few months”, says Council’s Solid Waste

Asset Manager Kitty Waghorn.

The temporary bags have aperforated tear-off

tie. They are the same as those used before the

Council moved totie-handle bags, and are the

same volume and price.

The Council movedtotie-handle bags more than ten

yearsago,due to feedbackfromboththecommunity

and Council collection contractors that the tear-off

tiebagswere difficulttohandle. Thetie oen popped

off, spillingrubbish onthestreet, andwere difficult to

wrap around afull rubbish bag.

The Council acknowledges that the tie bags are

more difficult to handle when they are full, and

anticipate moving back to the tie-handle bags as

soon asstock arrives.

“To make it alittle easier to use the tie-top bags,

we ask residents not to over-fill them. Over-filling

definitely makes itmore likely that the tie will

come off when they’re being carried to the kerb

and also during pick up”, says Kitty.

While the Council waits for the temporary bags to

arrive, residents may see blue bags with aCouncil

logo stickeratthe supermarkets andCouncilServices

where bags can be purchased. These will cost the

sameasthe tie-handle bags, andcan be usedinthe

same way as our usual Council-branded bags.

Bags can be purchased from New World Rangiora,

New World Kaiapoi, Rangiora Pak’N SAVE, New

World Northwood and New World Prestons Road,

Countdown Rangiora as well asall Council Service

Centres and theSouthbrookResourceRecoveryPark.
