Popular principal calling time

MICK.JENSEN

@ashburtoncourier.co.nz

The popular school leader at

‘Happy Hampstead’isretiring

after 21 years in the principal’s

role.

PrincipalPeter Melrose, 64,

will finish up at Hampstead

School at theend of theyear;

retiring after a41year

teachingcareer.

He has spent much of that

time at schools in Mid

Canterbury.

‘‘I have been privileged to

have the role at Hampstead for

the last 21 years and I’ve

thoroughly enjoyed my timein

education.’’

Mr Melrosesaid hisstory at

Hampstead was not abouthim,

but rather about the people he

had worked alongsideand who

had shared the samecommon

purpose of benefitting the

children.

‘‘To be ateacher or a

principal you have to love

being around kids. You get to

see life from their point of

view and you’re also tasked

with educating them and

taking them forward.’’

Mr Melrosewas raised in

Christchurchand taughtinthe

garden city after graduating

from teachers college.

He taught at St Joseph's

School in Ashburton for four

years before taking on the sole

teacher role at 13­pupil Lake

Coleridge School.

His firstfull principaljob

was at Fairton School,where

he stayed for nine years,

beforeayear in North

Canterbury at Waikari school.

Mid Canterbury lured him

back and he became principal

at Hampstead in Term 4,1999.

‘‘I still remembermy

interview at the school ­there

was an interviewpanel of 13

Departing Hampstead School principal Peter Melrose with his

school leaders.

and it wassomewhat

daunting,’’ he said.

Therehad beenchallenges

in the earlyyears including a

looming school debtfrom a

system called Banked Staffing,

which had been worked

throughand resolved; the

school was nowinahealthy

financial position.

Thehallmark of lifeat

Hampstead Schoolwas being

able to focus on what wasgood

for the childrenasthe bottom

line, he said.

‘‘I recognise allthose on the

boards andPTA, whohave

come forthand taken up roles

and haveworkedfor the

benefitofall students and the

school as awhole.’’

In 1999 the school roll was

250 and today it was

approaching 400,with more

growth expected.

‘‘The roll today features

children from various cultures

and the school is richer for it.’’

While numbers had grown,the

look of the school had not

changed too much during his

time.

‘‘As youwalk through the

main doors you get the impact

of the school fields and the

facilities andthat is avery

positive impression.’’

Mr Melrose said it had been

areal pleasure to see past

pupils move through

educationand pursuecareers

and relationships.

It was important that pupils

be thebestthey can andwere

happy and contributedto

society.

Covid lockdowns over the

past 18 months had shown him

he could keep busy in

retirement and now was the

right time for him to bowout,

he said.

It will give him will be more

timefor gardening, walking,

reading and travelaround

New Zealand.

Mr Melrose willcontinue his

association with Community

House Mid Canterburyand the

White Ribbon campaign, and

will explore art and craft

opportunities, as well as

spending more timewith

family.

Hampstead School assistant

principal ClaudineCampbell

will take on the role of acting

principal in Term 12022, while

the board of trustees looks for

anew principal.

Popular Peter will be ahard

act to follow.

Lightning sets bed ablaze

DANIEL.TOBIN

@ashburtoncourier.co.nz

Ahouse on Winchmore

Dromore Road, just north

of Ashburton, was struck by

lightning on Monday

afternoon.

David Bleach, who runs a

farm on the property, was

working with acolleague in

ashed out the back when

the storm hit bringing a

downpour of rain, thunder

and lightning.

David said he heard his

daughter Grace yelling

what he thought was

‘‘house on fire’’.

‘‘So Icame running over

and she said ‘Dad the

house is on fire!’ and she

was calling the fire brigade

at the same time.’’

David was able to grab a

fire extinguisher and put

out the flames; the father

and daughter’s quick

actions saved the house.

‘‘It was bloody lucky

Grace was home because

we wouldn't have seen it

from the shed until it was

well involved,’’ David said.

When the lighting struck

Grace was sitting in the

dining room on her laptop

studying for auniversity

test happening that

afternoon.

‘‘The whole room lit up,

then there was really loud

thunder then the smoke

alarms went off, and I

realised there was afire in

the bedroom,’’ Grace said.

‘‘I looked in the bedroom

and could just see flames

and Ithought I’m not f...ing

with that,’’ she said.

So she ran out to call for

Ashburton deputy chief

fire officer Jeff Marshall

said it was unclear exactly

where the lightning hit the

house.

‘‘But it came out around a

power socket that set fire to

some bedding.

‘‘Luckily the damage was

minimal but it could have

been ahell of alot worse,’’

he said.

Lightning strikes on a

house are uncommon, ‘‘but

there was alot of lightning

in this area at the time, and

reason and then came out a

pretty good excuse.

Four year consent for Smiths Ashburton

MICK.JENSEN

@ashburtoncourier.co.nz

Resource consent for up to four

years has been granted for the

Smiths Ashburton (Smiths City)

tenancy at the former Bunnings

building at 363 West Street.

Building owner Tricroft

Properties Ltd applied for

resource consent for its tenant

because the premises did not

comply with Ashburton District

Council’s new Plan Change 4

which has effectively removed

‘‘retail’ from the limited

commercial activities in the

Business Czoned area.

The plan change was done to

give priority to the development

of retail in the town centre

(Business A) and in in response

to anumber of large scale

resource consents granted

outside of it, including the

Kmart consent granted nearly

two years ago.

In his decision, released

earlier this week, commissioner

Ken Fletcher acknowledged the

Ashburton CBD was in astate of

decline, and growth in retail

over the past decade had been

in the adjoining large format

retail zone.

He said he would have

declined the resource consent

application had it not been for

some unique circumstances.

They included the current lack

of any large sites available for

Smiths Ashburton in Business A

or B, the timing of the

application, which coincided

with the Plan Change 4process,

and the fact that the plan

change had not had time to work

within the market to

accommodate the retailer in the

Business Azone.

He said afour­year duration

consent gave Smiths Ashburton,

Tricroft and the market time ‘‘to

work within the provisionsof

the post­Plan Change 4plan to

put together asuitable

redevelopment within the

Business AorBzones’’.

Such aredevelopment would

reinforce and strengthen the

town centre and enhance the

amenity of the town, Mr

Fletcher said.

Tricroft general managerTony

Gilbert said Tricroft was

disappointed with the resource

consent application decision.

‘‘We werehopingfor a

decision thataligns with and

supportsthe long term

aspirations of Smiths Ashburton

in Mid Canterbury.Wewill take

our time to explore our options,”

he said.

The resource consent decision

comes with landscaping, lighting

and transportation conditions.

Smiths Ashburtonhas been

operating out of the West Street

location since May, pending the

decisionofthe resource consent

process.

Tricroft agreed the remaining

two thirds of the former

Bunnings building willbeused

for retailactivities permitted in

Business C, whichallow for

trade and yardbased suppliers,

recreational facilities and

entertainment activities.There

is a15­workingday appeal

period.

Sewer work

Contractorsworking on the Ashburton

ReliefSewer (ARS) line have reopened

the intersection of BeachRoad East and

MiltonRoad South after laying the

wastewater pipeacross the road.

The project is aheadofschedule,

despite highgroundwater levels on

MiltonRoad South affecting the pipelaying,

and shouldbefinished by the end

of March next year.

The Seipp Construction teamislaying

one section of pipeline fromthe

Ashburton River alongMilton Road

South to WakanuiRoad. The intersection

of Milton RoadSouth and Beach Road,

which was closed whilethe pipewas laid

acrossBeach Road, has now reopened to

traffic.

MiltonRoad South from the river to

Beach Roadremainsclosed to traffic

(except for residents). The section

between Beach Roadand WakanuiRoad

is on targettoopen before Christmas,

however the riverend will not be

reinstated until the end of February.

The team is encounteringhigh

groundwater levels along Milton Road

South and is havingtouse sheet piling to

screenwaterfrom work sites.

Ashburton Contracting Ltd (ACL) has

been laying the second sectionof

pipeline along Wakanui Road (from the

MiltonRoad intersection) and Albert

Street, and north across land nearthe

Geoff Geering subdivision to Mill Creek.

The pipe will then follow alongsideMill

Creek to Bridge Street.

The work along Wakanui Road and

AlbertStreet is now complete and the

roads have been reinstated.

ACL has closed the footbridgeover Mill

Creek (connecting Geoff Geering and

Braebrook subdivisions) while their

listen to the debate and to adopt(or

reject) the findings of Stantec

consultantsregardingthe second

urban Ashburton bridge.Tohear

ADCCEO HamishRiachstate(and

also reportedinthe Guardian) ‘‘If the

council wanted to pay 100 per centof

the bridge,they canput it anywhere

theylike.’’

This statementisgrossly

misleading! ThereisNOfunding in

place forabridge constructed on

Chalmers Avenue.Ashburtonians, be

aware that theadoption of this report

It was alsoveryinteresting to hear

Stantec report thatthere was no

reasonasuitable bridgecouldnot be

constructedalongside thecurrent

SH1bridge afterhearingfor years

fromthe council that‘‘this would not

be possible’’.

As we've known all along it is

possible. It's aStateHighwayand

would be funded by NZTA.

Councillors are elected to ensure

thatthe wishesofthe public are given

dueconsideration.

Iwas at the public meetingheld at

Why have councillorsgone against

Skills

At all Year levels the skill level varies greatly,and Luke said it hasbeen great

seeing the more able riders helping their peers and giving them tips to

improvetheirown riding.

Additionally, after all classes get the basics of fixing apuncture -just in

It’s nevernicefalling off on asharpslipperyturn or going over the handlebars

ScienceStudents Learn About LocalWaterways

Information provided by Anna Gray

On Friday10September members of the Year 12 Scienceclass went to

Argyle Park to learn about our local waterways. Errol and Kelvin from

WaterWatch Lincoln came down to join our class,sowecould taketests

and runexperiments on the creek forour internal assessment.

We learned many different things about the aspects of water, how water

can be affected, and about the living organisms in the water. For example:

oxygen levels,nitratelevels,the conductivityofthe water, salts and minerals

in the water, and we even got aclose-up look at some insects that were

found in the creek.

We got to carry out many different tests, using special equipment. The

knowledge and information we gathered with the help of Errol and Kelvin

really benefited us withnew general knowledge and skills.

Ruby Gray measuring Nitrate and Phosphate

levels in water, with Riley Tindall helping them.

It was really great tosee everything in person

which really helped when writing our reports.

We also learned that human activity has ahuge

impactonour waterways and thatitisimportant

to look after the ecological health of the river

because it gives a place for many animals

and insects to live, and provides water for our

community.

Sustainability isalso very important as, if we want the rivers and creeks to

be around for years to come, weneed to act more sustainably and think

about whatweare doing thatisnegatively affecting our waterways and do

our best to stop.

TC Trusler-Clarkwho plays forthe Mid Canterbury Combined team (AshColl

and Mt Hutt Colleges), also plays in the Christchurch competition, for the

High School Old Boys’RugbyFootballClub and, mid-September,was named

in theCanterburyUnder19Red Team.

The Canterbury Rugby Football Union (CRFU) says that 2021 has seen the

return ofthe Canterbury Girls’ Representative Programme, but in aslightly

different format.

With Level 4lockdown, there was the need to change the South Island

Tournament programme, resulting in the Canterbury Rugby Union

gettingtogether with other Provincial Unionsfromaround theSouthIsland

to create anew path forwardinthe female representativespace.

2021 has also brought ashift in the age range from Under 18 to Under 19

to allow more female players to not only experience ahigh-performance

environment and have an opportunity to play for Canterbury, but

alsohelping to prepare themfor higher opportunitieslikeFarah PalmerCup

in thefuture and beyond.

TwoTeamsSelected

As aresult, Canterbury selected forty five players making up two teams,

Canterbury Red and Canterbury Black. The team has now played a

tournament fixture ofthree games inOamaru against Otago, Southland

and a Barbarians side (a team made up of amixture of provincial unions)

winning all three games by impressivemargins:being35-10 againstOtago,

35-0against Southland and57-5 against the Barbarians side.

Vaccination to support business

Mid Canterbury dairy farmers

Dinuka and Nadeeka Gamage

believe vaccination against

Covid­19 is vital to help protect

their family, staff and

business.

The 2021 Canterbury/North

Otago Share Farmers of the

Year contract milk 980 cows

for Dairy Holdings Ltd at

Ealing near Ashburton, where

they employ three full­time

staff.

Dinuka said getting

vaccinated was important,

especially for rural

communities.

‘‘The vaccine is part of our

plan to shield our business

from the virus. “All five of us,

and our 15­year­old son, have

had the first dose of the

vaccine. We’re booked in to

have our second dose this

month.”

The Gamage’s are from Sri

Lanka and their staff come

from India and Argentina.

Until the borders reopen, they

remain cut off from their

whānau.

“We’re like many people

working in New Zealand’s

primary sector, we haven’t

seen our families overseas for

along time,” he said.

“The more people we can get

fully vaccinated, the sooner

borders will hopefully reopen

to allow travel and help ease

workforce issues.”

It’s asentiment echoed by

Federated Farmers, which is

encouraging all farmers to

support their staff to get

vaccinated.

Federated Farmers

employment spokesperson

Chris Lewis knew farmers

were flat­tack with calving and

lambing, and now mating was

starting on dairy farms.

‘‘But there’s nothing more

important than the health of

your family, your staff and

their families.

“If your nearest urban centre

has awalk­in vaccination

centre, or aGPclinic is willing

to take ashort­notice booking,

you might even send in astaff

member with afew dollars to

pick up amorning or afternoon

tea shout for the rest of the

team.”

Lockdowns and limits on

gathering sizes have forced the

cancellation of events such as

field days, discussion groups,

sporting fixtures and A&P

shows.

Photo above: Dairy farmers Nadeeka and Dinuka Gamage know

how important covid vaccinations are, especially for rural

communities, right, Fonterra chief executive officer Miles Hurrell

getting his covid vaccination.

Rural Women New Zealand

president Gill Naylor said

everyone needed social

connections.

‘‘In rural New Zealand we

often work on our own or

within small teams, more so

now with current staff

shortages, so social and

networking opportunities are a

lifeline for our mental health

and wellbeing.”

“High vaccination rates are

one of the tools that will enable

restrictions to be eased.”

The primary sector’s largest

employers have been part of

workplace pilots to make it

easier for workers to be

vaccinated.

Dairy co­operative Fonterra

employed more than 12,000

people across its New Zealand

manufacturing sites,

distribution centres, offices

and Farm Source stores.

Fonterra’s director of global

quality and safety Greg

McCollough said more than

7500 vaccines had been

administered to employees.

“Vaccinations were

available on­site at most of our

workplaces. Where there were

too few employees at any one

office or site, those people

were given time to go to

workplaces where the

vaccination clinics were

happening.”

“We made it as easy as

possible for people who work

on our sites to have

vaccinations.”

The dairy co­op’s

vaccination drive was part of

sector­wide efforts to prevent

disruptions during the busy

spring period, when milk

production peaks.

“Keeping milk collection

and processing going is crucial

for our farmers, the welfare of

animals and to continue

getting milk on the table for

New Zealanders,” he said.

The meat processing

industry is New Zealand’s

largest manufacturing sector

and directly employs more

than 25,000 people.

As summer loomed it was

vital the sector’s processing

capacity was not affected by

positive cases of covid. Some

processors had offered on­site

vaccinations.

High vaccination rates also

enabled horticulture

businesses to operate

efficiently again and source

workers to harvest crops.

Vegetables New Zealand

general manager Antony

Heywood said approaching the

busy summer season the

workforce doubled to harvest

strawberries and seasonal

vegetables.

‘‘High vaccination rates will

ensure people can move freely

to where they are needed to

pick crops.’’

Vaccinations were free and

one of the most powerful tools

against covid.

Sunflowers aworthy option

Growing sunflowers to produce

high­oleicoil could provide

additional income for New

Zealand growers as a

rotationalcropduringthe

summer period, newresearch

hasfound.

Foundationfor Arable

Research(FAR)has finished

its three­year project looking

at crop options to raise

profitability andprovide

alternative land uses.

The project received $90,000

throughthe Ministry for

Primary Industries’(MPI’s)

Sustainable Farming Fund and

high­oleicvarieties of

sunflowers were identifiedasa

promising crop.

FAR general manager

business operations Ivan

Lawrie said research had

shown New Zealand had the

conditions to grow successful

sunflower crops with yield

potential more than 4.5tonnes

perhectare.

‘‘What’s more, consumer

demand is strong forhigh­oleic

sunflower oil, which is atopquality

oil withahigher smoke

point than regularsunflower

oil,and many sought­after

health attributes, including

low saturatedfat content and

high monounsaturated fat,’’ he

said.

The project focused on

sunflower agronomy during the

past two years,working with

Pure Oil NZ,which provided

grower contracts and extracted

the oil fromthe seed.

FAR’s Ivan Lawrie among sunflowers at Chertsey back in 2019.

PHOTO TONI WILLIAMS

Researchers were especially

interested in determining how

growers could produce a

profitable crop in sufficient

quantities to meet demand.

They trialledtwo linesof

hybrid seeds from France.

‘‘We’ve established that

growers need at least 60,000

plants per hectare to havea

successful crop.

‘‘Growers needreasonably

big paddocksto contendwith

bird damage because

unfortunatelybirds are

especially keen on the

sunflowers. The project has

lookedatsome of the optical

and sonic devicescurrently

availabletodeter birds, and

further work is required in this

area."

Sunflowers hadthe

advantage of growing at atime

of yearwhen there was limited

competition from other crops.

They also requiredminimal

chemicals or fertilisers to

grow, were low cost, and

‘‘prettymuch self­sufficient

until they’re ripe and ready to

harvest.’’

‘‘In addition, as adeeprooting

plant, sunflowers

providegood soil aeration and

soil conditioning for the next

crop in therotation.

Sunflowershave proven to be a

good predecessor cropfor

wheat, for example,’’ he said.

And nothingwent to waste in

theprocessingofsunflower

seeds; crushedseed,with oil

extracted, wasagoodanimal

feedfor equine and general

feed markets.

Beingclose to processing

plants waskey,MrLawrie said.

‘‘Our trials havemostly been

conducted in Mid and North

Canterbury because that’s

where the oilcrushing plant is

based. Butwe’re increasingly

getting calls fromgrowers in

other regions, including the

North Island, whoare keento

giveitago.

‘‘However, they’dneed to

factorinthe cost of freightto

gettheir sunflowers

processed.’’

Thehigh­oleic sunflower oil

produced so far by themore

than 20 growers involvedinthe

project wasusedbysnack

manufacturers to makehigh

quality potato chips.

Thesunflower oil could also

be purchasedinits extravirgin

form from supermarkets across

NewZealand under thebrand,

The GoodOil.

‘‘The demand is currently

domestic but thereispotential

to create someexports if we get

thevolumes up.’’

Choosing the right helmet

This Motorcycle Awareness Month,

we’reasking all road users to look

again formotorcyclists. Motorcyclists

can be hardtosee andone look before

turning is not enough.

All road users need to look again to be

sure the road isclear before turning.

Someother toptips youcan taketoensurethe safety of

motorcyclists on the road include:

Slow down behind motorcyclists.

Check your blind spots.

Drivetothe conditions.

Always use your indicators.

Know that motorcycles canappearquickly.

Motorcycle indicators don’tautomatically turn off.

Makesurethe rider is turning before pulling out.’

www.rideforever.co.nz

Let’sget this straight –open-facehelmetsare significantly less safe than

others.That much should be obvious when 34.6% of head impacts in crashes

aretothe chin area.

Flip-front or system helmets suffer

from afew related weaknesses

versus aconventional full-face.

One is that the chinbar lock

doesn’talways keep thechin bar in

place in acrash. Ifyou lookatthe

tests published by SHARP,you’ll

see apercentage figure forflipfront

helmets. It shows how often

the chin bar stayed closed during theirimpacttests.The lowestfigureis17%,

andseveral others only stayedclosed 20%ofthe time.

Another downside of flip-front or systemhelmets is that, even if the chinbar

stays in place, thestructural integrity of atwo-piece helmet is acompromise

versus aonce-piece full-face. Finally,eventhough you’renot meant to,some

peopleride along with the chin piece up, as though it’s an open-face helmet.

So, aflip-front lid is better than an open-face,but the best design for protection

is always full-face.

How the helmet should fit

How ahelmet fits youcan be as important as how it performs in tests. Fora

start, youmustnot be able to remove it without undoingthe chin strap. To test

for this, youtry to roll the helmet forwardoff your head.The chin strapshould

adjust to fit closely underyourchin without feeling likeit’sstranglingyou.

Next come thecloseness and comfort ofthefit. The helmet should fit snugly

and evenly allaroundyour head, with no pinching or loose areas. Above all, the

helmet mustfitclose enough that it won’t move around on your head,but not

so it gives youaheadache.

Buying ausedhelmet

Avoid buyingaused helmet. Helmets should be replacedroughly everythree to

fiveyears,mainly becausethe impact-absorbing liningand the inner liner will

have deteriorated. And you’ll neverknow if ahelmet hasbeen dropped ontoa

hardsurface,which can mean theshell is compromised.

President’s Report

AshburtonLicensing Trust

Theprevious 2years have been challenging forthe Ashburton LicensingTrust

in much the same way that they have been for many other businesses.The

occurance of Covid-19 rightatthe end of the2020 financial year caused afew

headaches but had little impactonthe financialstatementstoMarch 2020.It

wasearly in the 2020/21financial year where we sawthe impactofCovid-19

flowthrough andimpactour financialperformance. With theDevon Tavern

closed for 8Weeks revenue from hospitality operations plummeted but

duetoour new business model we were not as exposedtothis eventaswe

would have been previously, consequently our financial position remained

strong.The impactontenantsofboth ALT&SAL wassignificant although to

varying degrees.Our tenantsplayanimportantroleinthe financial strength

of boththe ALTand group andour focuswas on working with tenants who

needed support totry and ensure their ongoing operation, this included

providingsignificantrentrelief and support. In March2021 we sold the Hotel

Ashburton to our tenant, Johny Singh. This was asignificant step towards

our long term goal of reducing our exposure to hospitality and diversifying

into other investment types. This includes our investmentportfolio managed

by Jarden which held just over $2.5m at31March 2021 and has continued

to grow since through strong returns and continued investment. The

importantpointfor us is that thenew business model we have put in place

has proven its worth. While we were not unscathed we have de-risked our

business model and areseeing the benefits of not operating in acompetitive

andchallenging hospitalityenvironmentwhile at thesame time seeing the

ongoing benefits of an increasingly diversified investment model.

We have continued to work on our new businessmodel and have previously

announcedthatweintend to reconstituteasaCommunityTrust,webelieve

thatthe CommunityTrust concept is amuchbetter fit forusand our current

operations especially as we are nolonger retailers of hospitality direct to

our community anymore. Wewill be adopting our new brand on October

28th and from that point intime we will be known asthe Braided Rivers

CommunityTrust.

Changes in Covid-19 alert levels have resulted in challenging trading

conditions for hospitality businesses in particular. While we now have

minimal direct exposure tothis we do have indirect exposure through

our leased hospitality venues. Weare still alandlord inthis space and are

continuing tosupport our tenants, we also don’t have the same direct risk

we wouldhavehad when operating these sites ourselves.

Aqualified audit report has been received for both the 2020 and 2021

financial years. In2020 ALT did not revalue the shares it holds inDBSIB and

continued tovalue them atcost, inaddition we continued to value the

Hotel Ashburton per our directors valuationpolicyrather than obtaining an

independent market valuation.Inboth cases it wasconsidered thatthe time

andcostofthese valuations would provide limitedvaluegiven the impactof

Covid-19 on reporting at thattime.Inthe financial year ended 31 March2021

aqualified report was also issued despite the Hotel Ashburton being sold

and the shareholding in DBSIB being revalued.The Balance Sheet at March

2021 is not in question and the qualified reportrelatedtothe issues from the

previous year beingremediated.

The financial year ended 31 March 2020 started well and financial

performance was strong as we bedded down our new operating strategy

where we operate more asalandlord and continue to work on diversifying

our investmentpolicyfor thebenefit of our community.After allowingfor the

impact ofdeferred maintenance and covid-19 on our financial statements,

underlyingfinancialperformance wasahead of our $500k target.In2021this

strategy continued to pay dividends, despite the loss reported onthe sale

of theHotel Ashburton.Returns from our investmentportfolio managed by

Jarden were very strong and proved their worth. As aresult our normalised

performanceincreasedconsiderably on theyear prior.

We continuetoown andoperate the DevonTavern, this is our only remaining

site. This sitecontinues to perform well andgenerate strong financial results

while servicing an importantsegment of our community.The DevonTavern

remainsclosed under both Level3and 4covid restrictions but has performed

very well when openfor business.

Financial performance across our rental properties has remained positive

driven through strong occupancy as the result of long term positive

relationships with tenants who tend torenew their leases. The impact of

Covid-19 on our tenants has been real but varied, wehave endeavoured to

balance our community responsibility for managing community funds and

the needs of our tenants. Weunderstand that without tenants wedonot

have abusiness model and sotake along term, collaborative approach to

working with our tenants forthe benefit ofboth parties.

The introduction of ALT’s new granting policy has seen distributions to

community organisations and initiatives atamore sustainable level while

allowing us to reinvest in our business. We have now implemented a

granting policy and account for Somerset Ashburton Ltd which will allow

us to further increase charitablesupporttoour community.Our association

with the Lion Foundation continues to playakeyrole within ourcommunity.

We have apositive ongoing relationship with the Lion Foundation which

enables grants tocommunity organisations and initiatives of around $1.5m

annually through our local RegionalGrantsCommittee.

If Imightconclude,the changes ahead forour CommunityTrust areonesof

planned evolution,not revolution. We build on the work of previousboards

and the decisions they made to move to the Community Trust model. Isee

no reason whatsoever to move from that model and it is about staying the

courseinturbulent waters.Indoing so we will build resiliencyand it willbe

aroundfor the next 100 years.

"There’s plenty of memories that are

part of this display and plenty of family

connections. These groups played an

important role in the social fabric of the

Institute members still meet regularly to

share skills and companionship, while

having funwith drama, musicand crafts.

The museum display also includes

"Engineering inspectors from

the Department of Internal

because the Government subsidised a

Drama rules for actors

MICK.JENSEN

@ashburtoncourier.co.nz

There have been highs and

lows for local drama students

over the past few months.

Big Little Theatre

Company (BLTC) actors Bella

Casey Solly and Penny Nell

were all set to take part in the

national finalsofThe

National Young Performer of

the Year, but were left

disappointed when after

months of hard work, covid

forced the cancellation of the

competition.

In contrast, fellow students

Caleb McNulty and Gus Casey

Solly are still on astage high

after nailing full marks in

recent prestigious Trinity

exams for acting.

The four young actors will

come together later this

month to show their

impressive performance

skills to invited guests.

They will be joined by

BLTC students Zoe Ritchie

and Maddie Webb,who are

preparing for Grade 6drama

exams, in afull programme

that will deliver ahigh

standard and variety of work

that includes Shakespeare,

comedy, improvisation and

poetry.

BLTC director Jackie

Heffernan said the six

performers were outstanding

students, hard working and

committed to improving their

skills.

It had been such ashame

for Bella and Penny to have

missed taking part in the The

Talented Big Little Theatre Company drama students (back row

fromleft) Caleb McNulty, Gus CaseySolly, Penny Nell, (front from

left) Bella Casey Sollyand Zoe Ritchie.

National Young Performer of

the Year competition after

putting so much work into it.

‘‘They were due to deliver

15 minute solo routines and

had been working on

portfolios for months.

‘‘The opportunity has gone

for them and also the chance

to be crowned, but the

process has been fabulous.’’

Caleb and Gus gaining full

marks in the Trinity pairs

exams at Grade 8had been

very well deserved, she said.

They had been assessed

independently, with Caleb

choosing work from The

Curious Incident of the Dog

in the Night, and Gus reading

from King Lear.

Mrs Heffernan said the last

Covid vaccination drive success

Ashburtonian Snow

MacKenzie got his second

covid vaccination dose last

weekend, alongside his teen

children, and then enjoyed a

hamburger on offer from Kai

for Kids Charity.

Mr Mackenzie ­and his

teenagers ­were among the

hundreds of Mid Cantabrians,

aged 12 and over, who turned

out in force to get their first or

second covid vaccinations last

weekend as part of the Super

Saturday covid vaccination

push.

Some were doing it for the

community good, many to

protect family and friends

from the infectious Delta

variant, and others, still on the

fence, were lured in by the

offer of giveaways such as

hamburgers, sausages,

flavoured milks, bottles of

water, coffee and vouchers.

Nationwide there was agoal

to reach 100,000 vaccinations.

It was exceeded with afinal

tally of 130,002 vaccinations

carried out; 17,090 in

Canterbury.

Canterbury District Health

Board acting senior

responsible officer for the

Covid­19 response Ralph La

Salle said Super Saturday was

real success in the region with

Canterbury rated the top DHB

area for vaccinations.

‘‘Thanks to the efforts of our

vaccination teams, volunteers

and the Canterbury

community.

‘‘We’d like to give amassive

shout out to all of our amazing

staff and volunteers, and all of

those businesses who donated

prizes as an added incentive

for people to get involved,’’ he

said.

‘‘Feedback from

Cantabrians has been

overwhelmingly positive ... the

kai and activities provided by

vaccination teams seemed to

be abig hit, with many

commenting on their fun

experiences at clinics.’’

However despite Super

Saturday’s success, Mr La

Salle said it was important to

keep improving vaccination

coverage across Canterbury.

It would also mean more

certainty, and achance to

reconnect New Zealanders

with the world.

‘‘Approximately 86 percent

of our eligible enrolled

population is now either fully

vaccinated, has had asingle

dose or is booked to receive

their vaccination.

‘‘We’re urging anyone yet to

receive their vaccinations to

get vaccinated to not only

protect their whānau, but so

we can all enjoy everything a

classic Kiwi summer has to

offer.

Mr La Salle said in the event

of covid reaching Canterbury,

the district was ‘‘well placed to

manage any cases of Covid­19

confirmed in the region.

‘‘We care for people with

infectious diseases that spread

in the same way as Covid­19

each year, and our teams have

well established protocols for

managing any cases.

There was also frequent

communication with primary

care providers who knew what

to do if asuspected case was to

make contact, or arrive at their

practice.

As arural generalist hospital

any Ashburton Hospital

patients requiring Intensive

Care Unit (ICU)­level care

would be transferred to the

region’s tertiary hospital in

Christchurch, he said.

If covid presented in

Canterbury there was safe

management practice in place

of covid­positive patients in

the community which had

been in place for some time.

It included information

about how an exposure event

would be managed at ageneral

practice level.

In addition to the upgraded

33 bed Parkside Ground

Medical space at Christchurch

Hospital ­the DHB currently

has 36 physical beds within the

ICU and Children’s High Care

areas at the hospital, and also

32 negative pressure rooms

across its facilities.

Covid

record

website

goes live

Kiwis can now view their Covid­

19vaccination records through

the new My Covid Record

website.

It is the first step towards

providing vaccination

certificates.

MinistryofHealth National

Digital Services groupmanager

MichaelDreyer said whānau,

communities andbusiness

wanttosee areturn to amore

normallife as soon as possible.

‘‘MyCovid Recordisone of

the tools we’re putting in place

to help enableustoopenup

New Zealand,” he said.

“Thanks to the hard work of

New Zealanders, we have over

80 percent of the eligible

population vaccinated with

their first dose, whichgives us

more options forthe future.

‘‘Being fullyvaccinated will

helpushaveaclassicKiwi

summer.

‘‘Tomake that happen, we’re

making it as easy as possible for

peopletoprove they’ve been

vaccinated.

Covid­19test results will be

available on My CovidRecord

laterthismonthand

vaccination certificates ­

available foruse within New

Zealand and abroad­from late

November.

“The exacttiming for when

and where vaccinationproof

will be required are still being

finalised.

‘‘The Government is also

consulting with the business,

hospitality and eventssectors

on the finer details of how it

will work.

“There is plenty of time to

createanaccountonMyHealth

Record,and the Ministryof

Health will be prompting

peopleoverthe coming weeks

to create an account, starting

with those who received their

vaccinations earlier in the

year,’’ hesaid.

The planisfor two different

vaccination certificates –one

for usewithin NewZealand and

one forinternational travel

withmorepersonal

information so it can be used

alongside your passport.

The certificates will include

aQRcode,but therewill be

alternative options for people

who do not have internet or

needdifferent access options.

Menzshed members, Ashburton Christian School students and

teachers with some items made by students.

Skills shaped

by Menzshed

Well­made metal and wood

items were lined up at the

Menzshed this weekmade by

studentsfrom Ashburton

Christian School. They have

been tinkering away since

February making bookcases,

mirror frames, coat stands and

picnic benches using the

Menzshed’s equipment and

makingthe most of the

knowledge and experience of

the members.

The schoolcontacted the

Menzshed to use their facilities

last year and after asuccessful

trial period, the Menzshed

agreed to host five students

working towards their NCEA

levels.

Menzshed members

volunteered their timeand

knowledge to the students

helping them hone arange of

skills fromwelding to wood

joinery. This year’scourse has

wound up but the partnership

is set to continue next yearwith

10 students.

Menzshed president Richard

Durie said the partnership was

part of the Menzshed’s

communityoutreach.‘‘We are

happy to have groups of people

on site to share the facilityand

share the knowledge,’’ he said.

The members were

impressed with the quality

works the students produced

andtheir creative projects.

Insulation to

warm the cockles

Canterbury charitable trust

Community Energy Action

(CEA) has installed insulation

in 1500 homesacross

Canterbury and the West Coast

in the past twelve months,

mostly free of charge to the

homeowner.

It’s seen thousands of people

benefit from warmer, drier

and easier to heat homes, as a

result of insulation available

to low incomehomeowneroccupiers.

The organisation has been

working on making homes

warmerand driersince1994

andhas been aregistered

provider of government

subsidies forinsulation since

the beginning of the schemes

in 2009. They havehelped

more than100,000 people

since,and continue to this day.

The Government’s Warmer

Kiwi Homessubsidy of 80

percentistoppedupby the

Trustto100 percentand offers

free insulation to eligible

households.

CEA chief executive

Caroline Shone said agreat

deal had been achieved

through the insulation

programmes, but after 12 years

of insulation subsidies there

was still demandinthe area.

“These subsides in the main

are for people whohavealow

incomeand areoften

struggling to makeends meet,”

she said.

“They simply cannot afford

theinsulationtheyneedto

keep warmand healthy at

home, at an affordable price.

Having ahealthy homeisa

basichuman right and weare

privileged that we canhelp.”

The trust funding was

supportedonthe West Coast

by Development WestCoast

andWestCoast Community

Trust, and throughout

CanterburybyOrion,

MainPower, The Rata

Foundation andalsoPegasus

Health.

CEA also offeredfree energy

advice and/or double­layered

recycled curtainsifpeople

needed them.

“Now theweatherisgetting

warmer,many people tend to

forget about insulation. We

are busy insulating homes all

year andwewould like to

encourageanyonethinking

they mayneedinsulation,to

contact us sooner rather than

later,’’ she said.

Manypeopleleft their

enquiries to thetrust until

autumn or winter, which by

then could mean abit of await.

‘‘We simplycannot help

everyone as quickly as we

would liketo... wewould like

people to come forward and

get in touch now.”

Free insulation is available

to low income owneroccupiers

and owneroccupiers

in eligible areas.
