Covid-19 fails to

dampen spirits

By ROBYN BRISTOW

It is usually party­time in North

Canterbury in October and early

November for shop­a­holics,

gardening enthusiasts, car

enthusiasts and those who enjoy

country hospitality.But this year

Covid­19 hasbeen abit of aparty

pooper.

However, despite the difficulties

the Level 2Alertlevel poses, some

eventorganisers are proving to be

agileand resourceful, and forging

on.

Others, however have cancelled,

or bumped their eventout in the

hope the leveldrops to 1, while

others are waiting to make acall

closer to their chosendate.

The Northern A&P Show in

Rangiora at Labour Weekend has

already fallen victim,but organisers

are holding some animal section

competitions which will closed to

the public.

The Amberley A& PAssociationis

making acall about its October 30

show laterthis week, whilethe

Rock‘n’Wheels car eventatthe

Amberley Domain is havingone last

attempt at getting the show on the

road on December 12.

Aslimmeddown version of the

WaiauPig Hunt at Labour Weekend

will go ahead fromOctober22 to 24.

Participants are encouraged to wear

masks, the weigh­inprocess means

contestants have to stay in their

vehicles until it is their turn for

weigh­in, and there will be drive­by

contactless spot prizeand prize

winning collection sites. No formal

prizegiving will be held at the

grounds, however, the organisers are

looking to stream this online for

participants.

Meanwhile two fetes planned in

NorthCanterbury will also go ahead

as planned, alongwith the Hurunui

Garden Festival.

Organisers of the Christmas

Country Fete at Amberley House on

Thursday, October 28, the 30th

anniversaryofthe popular event, are

now ‘‘full steam ahead’’ planning

and organising the event.

Masks are recommended, as is

buyingtickets on line to help keep

queuestoaminimumatthe gate.

The Hanmer Springs Feteon

Friday, October 29,isalso going

ahead.Organisers have been busy

makingchanges to the event sitein

the historic QueenMary Hospital

grounds,toensureeveryoneiskept

safe and can socially distance. It will

be mandatorytosign in, and wear

masks.Guestshave to be seated for

eatingand drinking.

The Hurunui Garden Festival

from October 28 to October31, will

also be open for business. Covid­19

has forcedthe cancellation of a

dinner, and put the brakes on

gardening guru, LyndaHallinan

attending to speak and entertain,

due to her being Auckland­ based.

Secretary Anita Todd says the

committeewas disheartenedto

cancelthe dinner and sad Lynda and

some visitors from the North Island

couldn’t make it due to Covid­19

restrictions, particularlyafter

putting so muchtime and energy

into the event.

But at arecentget­together there

was alot of excitementthatthe

gardens could still open, and artists

could display their wares.

‘‘Everyone was so positive,

focused and prepared to deliver a

great experiencefor visitors.’’

Meanwhile the Waipara

Fireworks committee is continuing

to planfor its annualevent at the

Glenmark Domain on Friday,

November5.Anorganiser Andy

Macintosh says the committee is

forging ahead plans in­themeantime.

The family night out

includes kids entertainment with

the gates opening at 4pm.

The USA Car Day at Woodend,

planned for November 7, has been

cancelled.

Brushstrokes with feeling

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The great outdoors helps Devon Huston to

put feeling into his watercolour paintings.

He says he has beensliding more and

more intopainting on site, rather than

from photographs he has taken.

Paintingfrom photos is easierbecause

you areout of the wind and the heat, but

they lack heart, he says.

‘‘There is somethingabout painting

outside. You can putfeeling into it thatyou

can’tget fromphoto.There is more of you

in it,’’ he says.

The outside, openair watercolourshave

asmoothness, more contrast, and more

detailedbrush strokes.

Huston has an exhibition of 16

watercolours in the Back WallGallery at

the HurunuiDistrictLibrary in Amberley

untilthe end of the month.

Rangiora’s new Mainpower Stadium

‘‘With the opening and for ninedays it

was really pumping and then it came to

ahalt,’’ Mr Dunn says.

Afurther 100 new members have

signed since the stadium reopened,

leavingthe fitness centre on track to

Hutton’sshearwater lost to crash landings

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Dozens of adultHutton’s shearwater have

been killed after crash landing on

Kaikoura’s Beach Roadlast week, as dark

sky enthusiasts scrambletoreduce night

lighting in the town.

NickyMcArthur says the massivecrash

landingevent was unusual at thistime of

the year, and believesitisdirectly caused

by nightlighting in the seaside town,

coupled possibly with aweather event.

Fog add to the confusion with the birds

mistaking the sealed roadfor the ocean.

‘‘They were totally disorientated,’’ she

says.

Volunteers rescued many of thebirds,

but others were squashed by carsand

trucks, or eatenbycats.

The Hutton's Shearwaterisanendemic

species that is often affected by bright

lights.

It lives in two coloniesinthe Kaikoura

mountains (the Kowhai River and the Puhi

Peaks Nature Reserve) and one on the

peninsula, with the adult seabirds

returning home each spring for nesting,

then flyingout each autumn for their

winter feeding grounds.

Nicky says the birds beginreturningto

the colony in Augustonwardand by

Octoberhad pretty well made it, to mate in

the firstweek in November.

‘‘This year extraordinary weather,

combined with diffusionoflight, has taken

itstoll,’’she says.

It could be climate change,but normally

there werenoconcerns until the young

fledged theirnestsand headed out to sea

in March, she says.

Larry Field, one of four board members

of Kaikoura International Dark Sky (KIDS)

says in consultationwith the council he

wasable to get the new LED lights in the

town dimmed to 25 percent after the first

nightofcrash landings. He saysits difficult

to know the effect thishad, but says bright

nightlighting has an impact on theecology

of an area and human health, and is ‘‘more

serious’’ than anyoneevery thought.

Dr Field,aretired Universityof

Canterbury professor, an ecologist and a

Dark Sky astronomer, says internationally

thereisincreasing scientific evidence to

show the enormousimpact night lighting

is having on ecology streams and people’s

health, particularlyonpeople working at

night.

He wants to seelighting prevented from

beingcast upward into the sky at night,

and wantstopreventpeopleworking at

nightinartificialdaytime habitats.

He and KIDS are pushing for Kaikoura

to becomeaDark Sky Reserve,tonot only

help the shearwaterbut also all

inhabitants.

Road safety in Woodend urgent

By DAVID HILL

AWoodend resident has called for

action on promised road safety

improvements in the town.

David Jones says while attention has

been placed on the proposed Woodend

Bypass, improved road safety to address

the increased traffic volumes due to the

growing population needs to be the

priority.

‘‘While the bypass is anecessity that

should have been dealt with along time

ago, road safety improvements have

become more and more urgent since the

earthquakes caused amassive influx of

new residents to North Canterbury,’’ he

says.

‘‘Even if the bypass were to be started

tomorrow, it will be at least five years

before it will be open to traffic.

‘‘In the meantime traffic density is set

to get steadily worse as Pegasus,

Ravenswood and Two Roads become

evermore populated.’’

Mr Jones wrote to Waka Kotahi New

Zealand Transport Agency last month to

raise his concerns and was pleased to

get aresponse from national

infrastructure delivery manager

Andrew Thackwray.

Mr Thackwray confirmed NZTA is

working on anumber of safety

improvements for Woodend, but

provides no timeframe.

The safety improvements include new

roundabouts at Williams Street,

Kaiapoi, and Woodend Beach Road, the

widening of State Highway 1tothe north

and south of Woodend and installing a

wire rope barrier to the centreline to

prevent head on crashes.

Aset of traffic lights are also proposed

for the Woodend Road /SH1

intersection at the southern entrance to

the town, while improvements are

proposed for the Pegasus Roundabout to

allow pedestrians to cross the road

safely.

Following an inquiry from North

Canterbury News,NZTA senior project

manager Chris Collins says there is

design funding in the 2021/24 National

Land Transport Programme for the

safety improvements in Woodend, with

further progress to be ‘‘communicated

as this work develops’’.

Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon and

Woodend­Sefton Community Board

chairperson Shona Powell are planning

to meet NZTA chief executive Nicole

Rosie early next month to discuss the

district’s transport concerns.

Woodend’s safety improvements are

not progressing fast enough following

community consultation in October

2018, they say.

‘‘We are committed to seeing those

safety improvements delivered, but

we’re still waiting on atimeframe,’’ Mr

Gordon says.

‘‘The safety improvements were left

out of the 2021/24 National Land

Transport Programme, so we’re hoping

that it was amistake which will be

corrected soon and that’s what we will

be seeking from Nicole Rosie.’’

Community spirit

Ihope everyone’s checked theirLotto

ticket after the half amilliondollar

winning ticketlast week was revealed

to have been bought from Kaiapoi’s

Red and Black Dairy.

Dairy owner Nilesh is probably as

excited as thewinner.

It was just ashortwhileago that

Nilesh came to me for help afterbeing

declined alicence to sell Lotto and

scratch card tickets.

Iorganised aLotto representative to

fly from Auckland to meet directly

with Nilesh.

The representative saw how

accessible the dairy is as ahub for

Kaiapoi, and was impressed by

Nilesh’s commitment to our

community. It’s exciting that so soon

after becomingaLotto outlet we could

produce awinner.

Community spirit was high at the

opening of AdviceKiwi Menzshed

Pegasus Woodend’s new shed at

Gladstone Park.

Our community got behind the

project with volunteers rollingup

their sleeves in allsorts of ways.

Iwas thrilled to officially open and

speak at the opening, andtobe able to

acknowledge the importance of this

valuable community facility.

The shed is ahub for socialisation

and the sharing of skills,which results

in arangeofprojects that directly

benefit our communities. Well doneto

chairperson Sam Watt, Joel

McLachlan and the team!

Ienjoyed bringing National’s

Housing Spokesperson Nicola Willis

recently to look at Waimakariri

solutions to housing our growing

population.

Nicola is doing valuable work

addressing housing costs, playing a

crucial role in how we reform the

Resource Management Act.

Our Waimakariri population

reached almost 65,000 last year, and

that brings both challenges and

opportunities.

We know decisions madein

Wellington impact our familiesonthe

ground, so Ilike to ensure

Waimakariri experiences are heard in

Wellington.

Applicationsare pouring in from

young people across Waimakariri to

be my next Youth MP.

It’s exciting to see so many wanting

to be avoice for our youth. If youknow

ayoungperson you think would make

agreat WaimakaririYouth MP, please

email imakariri@parliament.govt.nz

for details.

Local resident Matt Hennessey’s

and my petition on Change.Org is

gaining traction as we call on the

CDHB to establish amental­health coresponse

servicethat will see mentalhealth

practitioners respond with

police officers to mental health

emergency calls in Canterbury.

Aservice is currently being piloted

by the Wellington DHB. Police told us

20% of their call outs in Canterbury

are for people suffering mental health

crises. You can sign the petition at

An unveiling, an

opening and aplea

Despite Covid restrictions Ihave been able

to attendand celebrate several significant

events over the past few weeks.

On Sunday Ihad the privilege to speak at

the unveiling of the new “Karo” sculpture

by the renowned artist AndrewDrummond

which sits on the riverbank by the Kaiapoi

marina.This event marked the launchof

the new Waimakariri Public Arts Trust.

The council set up this Trust with the

purposeofpromoting art and culture and

to encouragenew public art. Iwould like to

acknowledge and thank Chair Jackie

Watson and the Trusteesfor their work.

We as acommunity are indebted to the

Blackwell family for their donation that

has brought about the purchase of this

fantastic artworkand is part of celebrating

their 150thanniversary. Giving back to

Kaiapoiand Waimakariri is firmly

embedded in the Blackwell family’s DNA,

and is highlighted in this beautifulnew

sculpture.

From George Henry Blackwell to today’s

generation of Andrewand Michael, we

salute your commitment to our community

and wish you ahappy 150th anniversary.

Leithfield School principal retires

By SHELLEY TOPP

Leithfield School tumuaki, Sharon

Marsh has retired after seven years as

principal.

She was given afarewell morning tea

at the school last month, but will return

as avisitor for the opening of the

school’s new building in about 12­18

months time. In the meantime Sharon

and her husband Lindsay have plans to

rent out their home in Woodend, and

pack up their caravan for an open­ended

tiki tour around New Zealand, enjoying

aslower lifestyle, fruit picking here and

there and playing alot of golf.

‘‘We don’t know when we will be

back,’’ she says.

The school’s board of trustees is in the

process of selecting anew principal to

replace Sharon and in the meantime her

deputy, Rob Cavanagh, will takeover the

principal’s role. Sharon says she has

loved being principal of Leithfield

School.

‘‘We have an amazing community and

having the school as afocal point for our

community is areal strength of what we

do here.

‘‘We also have amazing staff who are

absolutely committed to doing the very

best job they can which has made my job

of leading them, areal pleasure.’’

Sharon is also the lead principal for

Puketeraki, Rangiora Community of

Learning, which has avision to ‘‘create

acommunity of learning in the heart of

the wider Rangiora district’’, and she

will remain in that role until the end of

the current school year.

She says there have been many

highlights during her time at Leithfield

School but winning one of the $10,000

Treemendous School Makeover Awards

in 2016 to develop anative forest and

vegetable garden in the school grounds

was definitely one of them.

Farewell ... Principal Sharon Marsh (centre) with young pupils from the Leithfield School.

Others were the development of

Matariki celebrations at the school and

the rebuild programme. ‘‘Three

quarters of our school will be rebuilt in

the next 12­18 months and that will be

great for the school,’’ she says.

The development of the school’s kapa

haka group and the school’s

development as acommunity hub,

especially during summer at the

swimming pool has also been ahighlight

for Sharon.

‘‘Our swimming pool which was one of

the first school pools to be built in our

area, provides alovely way for our

community to stay connected.’’

Notable tree

felled in

Kaiapoi

One of Waimakariri’s 59 ‘‘notable

trees'' has been felled after it was

considered adanger to the

community and surrounding

buildings.

Adecision was made to fell the

tree near the intersection of

Williams St and Hilton St in the

Kaiapoi central business district

after several large limbs split and

fell against abuilding. The

Waimakariri District Council

approved the property owners

felling the 80­year­old beech tree,

under provisions in the Resource

Management Act (RMA).

An aborist, who was hired to assess

the tree’s condition, identified

significant and extensive rot to the

tree and recommended ‘‘immediate

removal to prevent injury to people

and damage to property’’.

Council planning manager Matt

Bacon said it was adisappointing

decision, but necessary because of

the tree’s condition.

‘‘We have been working with the

arborist and property owners to

work through options, but sadly the

rot and damage is extensive and if

left, it would have posed safety

risks.”

The tree was felled by aqualified

aborist on Friday last week.

The property owners, Kaiapoi

Crossing Body Corporate will now

apply for aretrospective resource

consent to remove the tree within 20

working days, as required under the

Resource Management Act.

All proceeds fromthe exhibition, which

The prisonersmade the decision to

The exhibition, which closesonOctober

prisons have sharedapublicgallery space.

The OxfordArts Trust chairwoman,

exhibition will give the community a

glimpse at the creativityinside local

prisons and also giveartists some support

and encouragement to continue creating

art.

‘‘Artisapowerful rehabilitation toolin

prisons where men and women learn to

express themselves and communicate

through widerangingopportunities in

Department of Corrections education

escape fromreality for the artist and the

audience.

‘‘This is especially so in aprison

environmentwhere art enables people to

remove themselves from the confines of

prison, express their emotions through art

and reconnect withwhat is happening in

the world outside the wire.’’

Canterbury West Coast Air RescueTrust

Trust is grateful to have beenselected as a

With mission numbers up 40 per cent in

the first six months of this year, and the

Trust needing to raise$6millionper

annum to deliver the air rescue service,

community funding is vital.

‘‘We are excited to be apartofsuch a

great initiative, whichhas tangible

benefits for so many in the community and

we thankeveryone who has contributed in

The exhibition involves 64 works.

Mental health

support urged

Waimakariri MP Matt Doocey and

Rangiora resident Matt Hennessey have

launched apetition to addressthe rise in

mental health callouts.

Mr Hennessey approached Mr Doocey

abouthow the policecould be better

supported to deal with emergencycallouts

wheremental healthissues were afactor.

Subsequent meetings withRural Area

Commander Inspector Peter Cooper

revealed 20 percent of Canterburypolice

callouts are for people in mentalhealth

crisis.

‘‘It was staggering to hear NZ Police

callouts for mental health rosebyalmost

one third in justtwo years from2018 to

2020,’’ Mr Doocey says.

‘‘In Canterbury there is growingconcern

that police, who are not trained in

psychology, are being heavily reliedupon

to provide frontlinementalhealth

support.’’

Through the petition, Mr Dooceyand Mr

Hennessey are asking the Canterbury

District HealthBoard (CDHB) to establish a

mental health co­response service.

This would see amental health

professional joining emergency responders

to attendtomentalhealth emergency calls.

Currently police andthe fire serviceare

the first responderstoall emergency

callouts.

‘‘Often people experiencing amental

health crisisend up in emergency

departments or police cells, which is not

the best outcome for anyone,‘‘Mr

Hennessey says.

‘‘A co­response team wouldprovide

better support for people in distress,and

ensure frontlineresponders are making

meeting.

Cup transfers to Addington

Covidrestrictions have prompted

Kaikoura’s big race meeting to be

transferred to Addington Raceway in

Christchurch.

The annualtwo­day meeting at the scenic

SouthBay Racecourse was scheduled to be

run at KaikouraonSunday, October 31, and

Monday, November1.

However, the KaikouraTrotting Club

committee has reluctantly madethe

decision to transfer the meetingto

Addington this year.

‘‘It is one of the biggestdecisions in our

history,’’ Kaikoura Trotting Club president

Ben Smith says.

‘‘We havebeen racingonthe all­weather

tracktherefor 68 years and have never had

to consider such asituation.But we haveto

be pragmatic.’’

Mr Smith says the lack of any detail from

the Government aboutCovid­19 alert levels

in the lead­up to the November meeting

meanttheyhad littlechoice.

‘‘Thecommittee is just asmall group of

volunteers and we looked at every option,

but we had too manyquestions about

running themeetingatKaikoura at Level 2

so the decision was made to go to

Addington,’’ Mr Smith says.

The club will raceonMonday, November

1, featuringa13­race programme, justeight

days before theNew ZealandCup.

‘‘While disappointed for the Kaikoura

trackspecialistsweare enthusiastic about

what horses will turnupfor both the

$50,000 Alabar Kaikoura Cup and the

$30,000 MajesticSon SouthBay Trotters

Cup giventhe meeting will be two days

before the New ZealandCup trial, also at

Addington, so hopefullysome of thoseCup

horses willlook at racing at our meeting

instead,’’ Mr Smith says.

‘‘We knowalot of people are going to be

saddened by what has happened, but we

are obviously going to do everythingwecan

to make it ahugelysuccessfulday.’’

Council to consult on

cycle ways, parking

By DAVID HILL

Walking and cyclingdevelopments,

parking, urban development, three

watersratingand flood recovery were

among the topics discussed at last

week’sWaimakariri District Council

meeting.

While disappointed not to receive

funding fromWaka Kotahi New Zealand

Transport Agency recently towards the

district’s proposed walking and cycling

initiatives, councillors decided to

proceed with plannedconsultationof

the Walking and Cycling Network Plan.

‘‘A lot of workhas gone into it so we do

want to engage with our community,’’

Mayor Dan Gordon says.‘‘Even though

we don’thave the full fundingwe

wanted, we stillfeel it’s important to

have the conversation and you never

know withadvocacy, what it mightlead

to.’’

Consultation willbecarried out in

February and March nextyear.

Several options can be explored,

including spendingthe council’s

budgeted $563,500tocomplete a

reduced work programme, or increase

the funding to makeupfor some or all of

the shortfall.

Councillors also approved adraft

district parking strategy which will go

out for consultation for four weeks from

Mondayuntil November 14.

‘‘We look forward to the feedbackfrom

the community,’’ Mr Gordonsays. ‘‘We

get quite afew views expressed on

disability parking and time limits,so

this is an opportunity for the publicto

come back withtheirviews and tell us

what theythink.’’

Disability parking is alsobeing

considered as part of the processof

developing adisability strategy for the

district.

The new northeast Rangiora

development area is one step closer to

becoming areality after councillors

approved changes to the development

contributions policyschedule, following

public consultationand agreement from

the developer Bellgrove Rangiora Ltd.

An application will now be made to the

Minister for the Environment to fast

trackthe project.

Anew 3Watersrating structure was

also considered,but councillors decided

to hold off until early next year while the

council awaits for the outcome of the

government’s proposed 3Waters

Reform.

‘‘We thought it would be confusing if

we went out now and consulted,and

then things changed,’’ Mr Gordon says.

‘‘Butthere will be atime whenweneed

to have thatconversation of whether we

join anotherratingscheme.Weare still

not clear whether it would be the

council collecting the rates,should to

proposed reformsgoahead.’’

Recovery managerSimon Hart

presented his finalreport, following the

May 31 floodevent, noting that anumber

of lessonshad beenlearned from the

eventand opportunities identifiedto

improve future recovery efforts. It was

confirmed that ongoingflood recovery

work will continue as part of the

council’s established work programmes.

Kaiapoi riders triumph in Springston Trophy

By DAVID HILL

The KaiapoiPony Club’s

‘‘Black’’ team was ‘‘excited’’ to

successfullydefended the

Springston Troph equestrian

competition in Southland last

weekend.

The KaiapoiBlack teamwon

the event in 2019, but missed the

opportunity to go back­to­back

after last year’sevent was

cancelled due to Covid­19

uncertainty.

The three­day long contest

was held at the Ryal Bush Event

Centre under Alert Level2

conditions, withteams sticking

to theirteam bubbles.

‘‘The kids were really

pleased. We didn’tthink we

would do it,’’ admitsAmanda

Brown, one of the team’s

coaches.

‘‘It’s really hard to get all the

riders to do it consistently

across the team, becausethere’s

so many elements to get right.

‘‘The main objective is to have

agreat timeand to give the

riders exposure to competition

and theylearn alot from

watching otherriders.’’

Amanda’s children Molly (16)

and Sam (12) Moffattwere part

of both successful Kaiapoi

Black teams.

The Springston Trophy is a

three­day event,with teamsof

six ridersacross different age

Next year the Springston

Competitions in bubbles

By DAVID HILL

Cattlewill be back at the Rangiora

Showgrounds next week.

While the Rangiora Show has been

cancelled, cattle, alpaca and donkey

competitions will be held with no public

present due to Covid­19 AlertLevel 2

restrictionsonSaturday,October 23.

The cattlecompetition will also include

the junior handling and judging

competitions, convenor Phil Worthington

says.

The three sections will be separated

into three separate bubbles, with only

listed exhibitors,officials and supporters

able to enter the showgrounds.

Mr Worthington says 24 Hereford and

lowline cattle have been entered,along

with 14 youngpeople in the junior

herdspersoncompetition.

Youngcattle handlers willbetravelling

from Ashburton, Lincoln and Oxford to

compete againstmembers of the Rangiora

High School cattle show team.

They willbeput through their paces by

judgeAmy Hoogenboom, who will provide

atutorialfor the young handlers once

judging has been completed.

‘‘It’s disappointingnot to have afull

show,but it looksasthough we will have

to do avirtual competition at Canterbury

and there will be no handling

competition,’’ Mr Worthington says.

‘‘So we are thrilled we can offer

something for our young people.’’

Whilemodern technology offered new

opportunities, it was not the same as

beingable to judge an animal up close, he

says.

‘‘Technology means we can do afew

more things, but the thing is with aphoto

or avideothe judge can’tsee the animal

up close, so you can’t tell if acow is pigeon

toed.

‘‘And the skills of handling will wane

over time if we can’t offer opportunities

like this for our young people.’’

Show week to be revised

By DAVIDHILL

The show must go on, but without the

public.

Whilethe New ZealandAgricultural

Show has officially beencancelled for

the second year in arow, Canterbury

A&P Association presidentChris Harris

says individualsectioncommitteesare

considering holding theirown

competitions similartolastyear.

Mr Harris says it was disappointing to

cancel the showfor the secondyear

running, but ‘‘itcan’t really be helped’’.

‘‘Ourpulling out doeseffect anumber

of businesses and we are very conscious

of that.

‘‘It’s an icon event and everyone wants

it, but there’s just no way we be can

confident of safelyrunning the show.’’

He says the horse section will not be

holding acompetitionthis yeardue to

the size of the competition and the lack of

lead in timetorevisethe event.

But other sections will holdamix of

on­farm competitions and judging at

Canterbury Agricultural Park at Wigram.

‘‘We were lucky enoughtodoitunder

Level 1last year, but it will be more

challengingunder Level2toseparate

people,’’ Mr Harrissays.

‘‘Some of the eventswill be judgedon

farm, so it’s alot easierwhen you know

who’s coming.’’

Some of the judging will be filmed and

available online,hesays.

‘‘It means the show will still exist in

some form. It’s one of thethingsthe

sections are working out, how they will

be able to do it.’’

Alert Level 2restrictions mean that

none of the social events people looked

forwardtowill be held and it is unlikely

exhibitors willbetravelling fromother

parts of the country,MrHarris says.

‘‘Hopefully we will only have to wait

for another year untilwecan do it again.’’

Depending on vaccination rates and

government regulations,MrHarris

suspects if the showdoes go ahead in

2022, vaccination certificatesmay be

required for entry to the show.

Kaikoura pest eradication received boost

Determined community members are

doing their bit to eliminate pests in

Kaikoura.

Conversations between Ocean Ridge

residents and the estate owner has led to

atrapping initiative aimed at boosting

the number of native bird species in the

area.

Pests like rats, mice, and stoats, which

threaten native birds, will be targeted.

The Ocean Ridge Community

Catchment Conservation Group is

leading this mahi/work and has been

granted nearly $20,000 from ECan’s

biodiversity fund to support trap

construction, materials, community

engagement and administration.

The project will see apredator

trapping programme established in the

Ocean Ridge wetland and bush reserves,

and the nearby forest and shoreline.

The wetland and bush reserve host tui

and korimako (bellbird) along with other

bush­birds, and the wetlands are home to

pukeko and paradise ducks.

The shoreline is an important nesting

habitat for nationally vulnerable

pohowera/banded dotterel.

The conservation group supports other

predator­free 2050 conservation work in

Kaikoura and will be focusing on

community engagement, workshops for

volunteers with local trapping experts,

and community hui to share their

project’s outcomes.

The project is acollaboration with the

Kaikoura Men’s Shed, which was

approached to make the traps.

‘‘The men’s shed has experience in

making traps so we were very keen to

support the group and see how we could

work together,’’ catchment group

chairperson Ross James says.

‘‘Volunteers are also invaluable in this

space, and Ican’t really praise them

enough.

‘‘The groundwork they’ve put in

through backyard trapping and raising

pest issues is what it’s all about. Without

that, we wouldn’t have this project.’’

Ltd, is supporting the catchment group’s

mahi, with staff support dedicated to

environmental protection and

enhancement.

‘‘Trapping protects our special places

and species, so to have the owners and

residents all on the same page means a

lot to the group,’’ Mr James says.

The project will protect native

biodiversity, which future generations

will get to enjoy.

‘‘We think protecting the environment

and enhancing the beauty of this area is

awonderful legacy to leave to our

children and those who come after us,’’

Mr James says.

‘‘We’re showing them the importance

of protecting the biodiversity that we live

alongside, and hopefully they will

continue this work well into the future.’’

Environment Canterbury Kaikoura

land management and biodiversity

advisor Heath Melville has been

supporting the group and says trapping

has wider benefits for native

biodiversity.

He says native birds face anumber of

challenges in ‘‘human­centric

environments’’, such as habitat loss and

Shorebirds such as pohowera/banded

dotterel are particularly vulnerable, as

they can be easily sniffed out by

hedgehogs, dogs and both feral and

domestic cats.

‘‘This residential development has

gone to great lengths to re­establish

wetland and forest habitat, giving the

community opportunities to strengthen

their connection with our taiao/

environment, for which this project will

further enhance while helping our local

manu/birds,’’ Mr Melville says.

‘‘It’s great to see the community

leading such aproject in their backyard

and beyond, to extend ahand to the

vulnerable shorebirds across the road.

and hope it might encourage more

Call for financial aid

The scratching of SouthIsland A&P shows

from the spring calendar will wipe millions

of dollarsfrom local economies.

With the New Zealand Agricultural

Show,Rangiora Show and SelwynSpring

Show reducedtospectatoronly events, the

RoyalAgriculturalSociety(RAS) is

considering approachingthe Government

for financial aid, as showswill have to write

off up­front costs.

The Canterbury A&P Association has the

ability to draw on aloan of up to $1 million

from the Christchurch City Council, but

othershow committees are not so lucky.

RAS presidentBrentSnellex, of

Rangiora, says the cancellation of the

showsisamajor blow.

‘‘TheA&P shows are an amazingvehicle

for the urban community to interact with

the country and it givesthe rural

community an opportunity to see each

otherand that’shelpful fromamental

health perspective.’’

They are major revenue­earners and

theircombinedlosses are likelytorun into

tens of millions of dollars,hesays.

Mr Snellex saysitishard to stomach,

with no Covid­19 cases in the South Island

in the last12months.

He says the future of other events was

unknown.

Australianshows have received financial

help from the government and perhaps the

New Zealand Government should step in,

he says.

Shearingorganiserswill proceed with

the national Corriedale shearing and

woolhandling championships, normally

part of the Canterbury show.

Convener DaveBrooker says the

championships will be heldatthe

showgrounds, without the public but

probably livestreamed.

The Ellesmere A&P Association has

excluded the public fromthis weekend’s

Selwyn Spring Show, restricting it to

exhibitors and competitors.

It is amajor blowafter the association’s

150thcelebrationswere postponed last

year.Tosoften the blow,itplansto

livestream some events.

Competitions are being spread over

threedays, instead of asingle show day at

the Ellesmere Showgrounds to reduce the

risks.

Events kick off on Friday withhorse,

sheep, dog trial,wool,and grain and seed

competitions.

Horsecompetitionswill continue on

Saturday, along withClydesdales, donkeys,

dairyand beef cattle,goats, poultry,wood

chopping, dog trialsand highland dancing.

On Sunday the horseswill be joined at the

Visas extended for workers

An estimated9000 migrants working in

New Zealand’s primary industries and

theirfamilies could benefitfrom the

government’s announced one­off,

simplified pathway to residence,

Agriculture and Rural Communities

Minister Damien O’Connor says.

‘‘This is agreat stepthat willprovide

certaintyfor hard­working migrants, their

families, their employers and our rural

communities.’’

Immigration Minister KrisFaafoi last

week announcedthe new 2021Resident

Visa,anarrangement that couldsee up to

165,000 migrantsgrantedresidence.

Immigration New Zealand has published

eligibility criteria that will be relevant to

many migrants currentlyworking on farms.

‘‘Acrossrural New Zealandmigrants are

demonstratingtheir value to our economy

and particularlyduring these Covid­19

times,’’ Mr O’Connor say.

‘‘We needtomake sure we showhow we

valuethese peopleand in doing so retain

them.

‘‘Covid­19has greatly disrupted the

movementofpeopleacrossborders. Our

focusnow is to move through this process

as quickly and fairlyaspossible.’’

Visa holders canalso include their

partners and dependents in their

application.

Applications for the 2021 Resident Visa

will be open in two phases ­onDecember

1this year andMarch1next year.

The announcement follows theapproval

for quarantinefree travelfor horticultural

workersfrom Samoa,Tonga and Vanuatu

to assistgrowers in fillinglabour shortages.

Mr O’Connorsays whilethe

announcementhelps to relieveworkforce

pressure,hebelieves the primary

industries still need to stay focusedontheir

long­termstrategiesfor developing people.

‘‘Immigration is one way to source

people, but we also need to keep up the

good work that’s been done over the past12

months or so to attract Kiwis intolifeonthe

land or our supply chains,and of course

retain them.

‘‘Wherever you go in modern economies

around the world,the most valuedresource

is people and it’s no different for our

primary sector. Acrossour primary

industries we are experiencing very good

growth in export revenuesand having great

people will be key to our trade­led recovery

from Covid­19,’’ Mr O’Connor says.

Dairy award entries open

New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards

programme.

Changeshave been made to all three

categories, the share farmer, dairy

manager and dairy trainee of the year, after

months of consultation, awardsgeneral

manager Robin Congdon says.

‘‘The share farmer, dairy manager and

dairy trainee categorieshave been futureproofed

to ensure the awardsprogramme

provides the best platform for all entrants

to learn, connect and grow. This can be

seen in the changes to judginginthe dairy

trainee category, with askills day providing

an opportunity to learn and not just be

judged.’’

The dairy managerentry conditions have

changedincluding removing the minimum

time spent on aNew Zealand farm in

relationtovisa restrictions.

FARM FOCUS ADVERTORIAL

32 North Canterbury News, October 14, 2021

Putting Kiwi farmers in the driving seat

Back in 1981, three Wairarapa

farmers decided to create a

system for farmers to improve

the way they manage their

farming business.

At that time, record­keeping

was very much about looking

back, using accounting

methodology.

The company founders

wanted to be able to look ahead,

to plan for the next season.

This radical approach proved

to be highly successful.

Forty years later this

business, now known as Farm

Focus, is still going strong.

Key to the company’s success,

is that its specialised software

meets farmers’ specific

management accounting

requirements, but also makes it

easy to transfer transactions

into tax­focused accounting

systems used by accountants.

Chief executive Brian Eccles

has been involved with the

company from the early days,

and says that while software

has changed massively over the

40 years, the successful formula

established all those years ago

still holds true.

Managing cashflow through

great planning was important

then and continues to be vital.

‘‘Running afarm is full of

uncertainty,’’ says Brian. ‘‘That

can come from weather, pricing

changes or awide range of on

and off farm regulations.

‘‘Plans help you manage

adversity because you can

quickly pivot when the plan

isn’t quite working.’’

Technology is constantly

evolving and the company

continues to invest in major

upgrades to ensure the product

is relevant in the modern

world.

It is currently supporting

customers to move from its

previous application,

Cashmanager RURAL, to its

new cloud­based application,

Farm Focus.

‘‘Not everyone loves change’’

says Brian,‘‘but once customers

begin to see the value of

investing in the new they never

look back.’’

Customers moving across to

the new platform, such as

Hawkes Bay farmer Caroline

Smith, notice the

improvements.

“Cashmanager RURAL was a

great package in its day but

farming practices and

requirements have changed

greatly over the years.

‘‘Focus’s automated

technology makes budgeting

much easier which has

definitely helped cut down time

spent in the office.’’

Caroline says the ability to

Farm Focus ... Brian Eccles is keen to support kiwi farmers.

budget three or four years

ahead has been especially

helpful during Covid and

drought events.

‘‘It’s way easier to look ahead.

It has given us confidence in

our planning and shows we can

weather the storm’’

Brian says that while the

world is full of generic

accounting systems designed

for city businesses, asystem

like Farm Focus, uniquely

designed to meet the special

needs of farmers, is extremely

rare.

‘‘What might be ideal for an

accountant might be entirely

unsuitable for afarmer.

Software like ours that can

drive improved management

can increase revenue

massively. Potential savings in

accountancy costs are minor by

comparison’’ says Brian.

In addition to marking 40

PHOTO: SUPPLIED

years in business this year,

Farm Focus is also celebrating

its recent win in the Cyber Gold

category at the Wellington Gold

Awards.

‘‘This award really belongs to

our customers as we wouldn’t

be where we are without their

support. Helping New Zealand

farmers to stay at the top of

their game and retain their

number one spot in the world is

what drives us!’’ he says.

Happy

birthday

to us!

been successfully supporting

New Zealand farmers for 40 years.

The workshops, which

organised by Music and

The aim of Grum’s

organisation is to make

Hanmer Springs acentre

Workshops for soap

Everyone who attended

Opposites attract

By SHELLEY TOPP

Two artists, who spent 12

monthspreparing for an

exhibition of their paintings,

had to cancel the opening due

to Covid­19 restrictions.

Kaiapoi’sRuby Whitty and

Woodend’s Joanne

McDougall have 27 paintings

in theirexhibition, Opposites

Attract,atthe Art on the Quay

Gallery in the Kaiapoi

Library.

‘‘It was very disappointing

not to be abletohold an

opening for our exhibition

but we had no option,'' Ruby

says.

Joannesays it was abit of a

letdown not to be able to

celebrate all our hard work.

They chose the name of

their exhibition because of

the starkdifferenceinthe

styleoftheir paintings.

‘‘Ruby and Iboth have

different styles,which

complementeach other, so

we decided to call the

exhibition Opposites’ Attract,’'

Joanne says.

‘‘Joanne’s work is beautiful

florals and birds.Mine is

plumbers and pipes,’’ Ruby

says.

‘‘I go from one style to

another.’’

Ruby has beenpainting

sinceshe was achild and

gainsinspiration for her work

from many items and places,

including nature, glass,fruit,

flowers, landscapes,

buildingsand historical

landmarks.

‘‘I am alwayswilling to try

something new,goina

different direction and Ihave

recentlyproduced a

collection of unusual abstract

works called Industrial Chaos,

inspired from childhood

memoriesofmybrother’s

profession as atool maker,’’

she says.

‘‘This has led me to even

moreabstract works, whichI

am enjoying very much,but I

still love to paint landscapes

and stilllife.’’

This is their first joint

exhibition.

``Ruby and Ihave been

paintingfor avery long time,

and have accumulated alot of

work,’’ Joanne says.

‘‘Many exhibitions only

accept new work, so once a

work is shownlocallyit

becomes adead painting, no

matter how gooditis, or how

much work has gone intoit.

‘‘Havingaprivate

exhibition together allowsus

to show older workthat we

are proud of, as well as new

work,’’ she says.

Opposites’ Attract willbeon

show at the gallery until

October 27. Examples of Ruby

and Joanne’s artwork can also

be seen on their websites at

who is also achildren’s book

Kaiapoi Christadelphians

“The Key ofknowledge...” (Luke 11:52)

THE FALLEN ANGEL MYTH

Does the Bible teach of fallen

sinful angels? What does it say

of their characteristics?

Most mainstream Christian churches teach of

a spiritual being/beings who challenge God’s

authority in God’s domain-the heavens. In Isaiah 45

the Bible states that God dwells alone, with no other

god beside him. He holds all power and authority.

So, who is the real adversary toGod’s ways and

authority? It is averysimpleand surprising answer,

one that shows that God has been working through

the ages with man, and that ALL challenges will

come to nothing. For heisthe supreme creator,

who is in touch with everyminute detail concerning

his handiwork.
