alongCassStreet towards

WillsStreet. Thenloop around

Victoria Street (in front of the

Devon)and return along Cass

‘‘At this stagelimits of 100

peopleare allowed in onearea

she said.

Then came the issues on how

it was managed with acovid

passports could attend,which

was anotherhurdle,she said.

‘‘I have only just cancelled

‘‘It is sad we couldn't hold

the bikeshow this year

because it was cancelled last

AMP eyeing tradewaste discharge

MICK.JENSEN

@ashburtoncourier.co.nz

Ashburton District Council is in

discussions with Ashburton Meat

Processors (AMP) about the

possibility of atradewaste discharge

from the company’s Bridge Street

site.

AMP approached council earlier

this year about the option and

extended modelling has shown the

discharge can be managed in the

network and at the wastewater

treatment plant.

AMP currently discharges to land

and the move to pipe is seen as having

significant environmental benefits to

the northeast area of Ashburton.

Further discussions will take place

on the physical means needed to

provide adischarge and apumping

main being built from AMP to the

head of the relief sewer near the

intersection of Bridge and Kitchener

streets.

The discharge option has been

looked at in the past but the quality of

the discharge has since increased and

there is also now more capacity after

the upgrade of the Ashburton relief

sewer system.

Council assets manager Andrew

Guthrie told councillors at arecent

briefing that an agreement with AMP

had not yet been reached.

If agreed, it would represent a

‘‘significant’’ single point discharge

and alikely 10 per cent increase into

the system. The discharge would use

some of the scheme’s capacity that is

allocated for growth, but that would

be offset through payment

development contributions from

AMP, he said.

Originals bikeclub presidentGerald

McKenzie said many hours hadbeen

the past seven months and he was

grateful for community support.

Covid restrictions had also affected

to take placeonTancredStreet, in

downtown Ashburton.

Unable to reachanagreement on

guidelineswith Ashburton District

Council,Mrs Johns has opted to take

the event backtothe Tinwald

Tinwald rugby and cycling clubs on

Maronan Road) on December 4.

It will be aChristmas Festival

ThisamazingmovieisbasedonThomasSavage’s

1967 novel, one ofmyall time favourites. It

stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Jesse Plemons

two brothers working ontheir ranch, one ofthe

biggest cattle ranches in Montana in 1924.

In the beginning itseems like acowboy movie

but it is much much more.

Ultimately it is arevenge movie thattakes us into

strange and savage darkplaces.But there is some

sunshinepeekingthroughthe cracksand when it

happens suddenly wefeel huge compassion for

all the characters.

Ihave to mention ayoung Aussie actor who is

so out ofplace onthe ranch? Thin, gangly and

nerdy.His role wassorelevantinthe story, he was

sensational.

And the setting, wow, the views ofhills in the

Maniototo are absolutely perfect. Most scenes

have the been shot showing off the grandeur of

Town and country to unite at protest

Town and country coming

together is part of Groundswell

NZ’s mantrafor its second

nationwide protest, Motherof

All Protests.

Protesting government’s

unworkable regulations, it will

takeplace from vehicles

travellingin convoy around the

west side of Ashburton this

Sunday, from 1pm. There was

no planned gathering.

The protest route starts from

the AshburtonDomainatWest

Street, travels north to

RacecourseRoad, turnslefton

to Belt Road and through to Oak

Grove then left on to Alford

Forest Road. It willthen turn

left at West Street back towards

the domain.

Jodan Townshend,one of the

Ashburton protest organisers,

said this timepeople were

encouraged to stay inside their

vehicles, whether it be tractors,

cars,trucks or utes, due to covid

restrictions.

For the Motherof All Protests

people arebeing encouraged to

drive to their local town, stayin

their vehicle and listen for a

Groundswellstatementtobe

read on theNewstalk ZB radio

frequency at 1.35pm.

In Ashburton the radio

frequency is 98.1FM or 873AM

Protesters will start atthe

Ashburton Domain on West

Street and drivethe route until

anationwide statementisread.

Then all vehicle drivers are to

pull over, put their hazard

lights on,and turn up their

radio for the Groundswell

statement, Mr Townshendsaid.

Vehiclesare expectedto

drive theroute from1pm to

2pm.

As wellasnogatherings,

organisers have requested no

offensiveplacards or signs.

Howeverthere are

Groundswell flags/banners

which can be displayedon

vehicles to showdrivers are

part of the protest.

Groundswell NZ co­founder

Laurie Paterson said

momentumhad continuedto

build since thousands of

farmers, andafairfew dogs,

descended on towns and cities

throughout thecountry for

Howl of aProtest, to oppose

what they calledunworkable

regulations.

More centres wereon board

for this protest, and ahuge

turnout, including many

tradies, was expected in

Auckland.

Groundswell NZ had created

an online tool for supporters to

write to agriculture and rural

communities MinisterDamien

O’Connor, ‘‘to tell him to do his

job and stickupfor rural

communities’’, the group said.

Withinaweekoflaunchit

Thousands attended the Howl

letters.

Hard copieswould be

Beehive office beforethe

Prime Minister JacindaArdern

andclimatechange Minister

James Shaw.

Mr Paterson said virtuallyall

feedback and phone calls

before HowlofaProtestwere

fromrural people but thistime

it was the opposite with the

callscomingout of cities.

‘‘That’s partofour mantra

thistime... town and country

together,’’ he said.

Therewereexpectations of

those attendingMotherofAll

Protests, including obeying

road rules, local Covid­19 rules

and making wayfor emergency

services.

Participants neededtostay

in their vehicleand not

said.

The Groundswell NZ

message would be read by cofounder

Bryce McKenzie,who

would drive intoGoreaspartof

the protest along with Mr

Paterson.

The pairhave recentlyhad

meetings withFederated

Farmers, Beef+LambNew

discussingarange of topics.

Hot pools opening

pushed back again

Further delays have pushedout

the opening of Methven’s Opuke

Thermal Pools andSpauntil later

this month.

The facility planned to be open

originally for the startofwinter

and had been taking bookings for

aNovember 12 opening. The

openingisnow set for November

26.

The Opuke website saysa

number of ‘‘unforseentechnical

issues’’ have delayed the

commissioning of the pools andif

they are resolved the pools may

open earlier.

Previously, covid lockdowns

andsupply chains issues were

cited as reasons for the delayed

opening.

Onlinebookings can be made

via theopuke.nz website.

“Children can’t getaway

“Thepoisonswillstay

smoke are morelikely to

developillnesses such as

AshColl considering

student cellphone use

MICK.JENSEN

@ashburtoncourier.co.nz

Ashburton College is looking closely at

studentcellphone use at schooland is

gathering information to see if the current

rules needtobechanged.

Currently all studentsare abletobring a

cellphone to school and they can use it in

class if instructed to do so by the teacher.

There are no cellphonerestrictions in

schoolgrounds, but cellphones can be

confiscatedifused inappropriately.

Ashburton College principal RossPreece

said there were advantages and

disadvantages to students having cellphone

access at school.

Cellphonesdid not meet the requirements

for bring your own devices like

chromebooks and laptopsand some staff

had suggested cellphones were adistraction

to learning, he said.

‘‘We haveinvestigatedother schools'

approaches and now we are interested in

collecting the viewpoints and perspectives

of members across our school community.’’

Mr Preece said the cellphone at school

debatewas starting from ablank slate and

the views of teachers, parents and pupils

would all be considered.

Any changestothe currentpolicywould

not come into affect until next year, he said.

Ashburton College recentlyemailed

parents to invite themtoshare their views

via an online survey.

The email contained anumber of insights

into articlesaddressingcellphones at school

and invited parents to do their own

research.

This was held inthe College Auditorium on Thursday 10November

with, as previously advised, recipients only attending and minimal

staff. The link to the recording and individual photos has been sentto

all families,and staff.

Appreciation forVideo Recordings

Ahuge thank you goes to Year 12 student Kyle Christie for his absolute

expertise evident invideoing our range of awards events this year. His

skill, knowledge and passion for such work has made the ability toshare

these occasions with whānau, staff and other interested personnel very

straightforward. Thank youKyle.

Welcome

In welcoming all to the Ceremony, DeputyPrincipal Jono Hay noted that

we indeed liveinunique and interesting times,and said it wasunfortunate

we were unable

to have our usual

celebration with

parents,whānau

and invited

guests.

Howeverweall

recognised we

were fortunate

to be able to get

together as a

year level cohort.

(Pictured right):

Jono Hayaddressing the audience.

Principal’s Address

Principal Ross Preece opened with the quote which states‘it was the best

of times and it was the worst of times’, noting it as astatement which

could well summarise students' experiences over the last two years. Ross

suggested that thechallenges of COVID-19 have been many and varied but

an unforgettableexperienceinmanyways.

Listed were some

experiences

which could

featureinthe

‘best of times’

list,including

extended time

with whānau

and sometime

to enjoysimple

pleasures;timing

whichallowed

forthe College

Ball to be ableto

be held;and he highlightedthe support of eachother via social media and

College outlets; plussincereacknowledgement to the mahiofthe student

leaders in maintaining contact, leadershipand by ensuring events still

happenedbut through different mediums.

Thechallengesand disappointmentsofthe ‘worst of times’wereevidentin

the cancellation of so many cultural andsporting events –locally, regionally

and nationally; the stress ofworking to maintain enthusiasm for learning

while online and worrying about falling behind; missing face-to-face

contact with friends and, locally, the combination of COVID and flooding

withconsequential economic hurdles.

However, looking forward, Ross said there were manyprospects forstudents

to be excited about, citing the increasingly large menu ofemployment

opportunities available. He reminded students to remember the

AshColl ValuesofQuality, Pride and Respectwhich would be high on many

employers’wishlists.

Importantly was taking some timetofind an occupation‘thatyou enjoy and

which challenges you togrow’. Ross reminded the students that they are

likely to be working forfifty years,which is averylong time to be miserable.

This year group wasacohortRoss Preecefelt astrong affinitywith,asthey

started College inthe same year as Ross startedatCollege.

Acknowledged on behalf of the year group was the work of and support

from teaching staff to students, and the work and vital role of the current

BoardofTrustees.

In conclusion, Ross continuedhis traditionsofgoing backeighteen years to

look at some of the innovations of the year of students’birth. Listed this time

was Apple’s establishment ofthe ‘I-phone Music Store’and digital cameras

within cellphones.

With afinal Kia Kaha, students were wished well and encouraged to be

excited abouttheirfutures!

Head Students 2021

Head Students Milli Sullivan and Thomas Patterson, aside from their

formal speeches,werethe readers of the Achievement Awardrecipients

lists,while theseawardswerepresentedbyRoss Preece.

Head Girl Speech–MilliSullivan

Milli opened by acknowledging thisasher final time on stage in frontofher

Year 13 peers, sayingshe couldn’t yettell if shewas excited,nervous,sad or

even happy thatthis wasthe end of secondaryschooling.

She continued, saying she could confidently saythatthiswasn’t exactly the

endingoftheir fiveyear College journeythey pictured in their heads when

first walking throughthose College gatesback in 2017, but said‘nonetheless

hereweare

celebrating

making it

through, and

all Ican sayis

congratulations’.

Milli challenged

all to continue to

encourage others

and inspire

themselves to

take on goals to

attain the heights of everyopportunitythatcomes their way. She said also

that, together we walked in through the College gateswith other beloved

students who have begun their journeysinmanyother ways’.

Added was the acknowledgement that, next February, many will be

attending their first year of university, moving away from friends and

families and leaving behind the familiar Ashburton College hallways and

starting their first time of independence.

Recognising those steps came with appreciation of opportunities –past,

current and future -which would not have been available without the

people who have guided and mentoredthroughout recent years. Milli then

gave a‘massiveshout out’toparents,who will watchthe ceremony online,

for their support; and to the dedicated teachers of Ashburton College

without whom awards and successes would not have been possible, and

formaking school worththe while,through commitment to educationand

ability tomake the environment both fun and asafe place for acquiring

knowledge.

Milli acknowledged the teachers and Year 13 leavers forentrusting her with

the role of Head Girl, one of the hardest but most rewarding and fulfilling

lifeexperiences to date. Milli thanked all forthe help she had received, and

acknowledged Student and House Executive Leaders and Committee for

their work,and to all students willing to participate and support.

Looking to the future, Milli encouraged students to take all they have

learned through the past two years of toughness, uncertainty and mixed

emotions; and to takethe hope, determination, grit andpassion into future

goals,jobsand aspirations, concluding with -

‘don’t settle for things thatwon’t spring youout of bed in the morning.

You’ve got to findwhat youlovetodo’.

Head BoySpeech–ThomasPatterson

After welcoming those present and those who will watch from home,

Thomas noted the ceremony asbeing two aspects –recognising student

successes and wrapping up their finalyear at secondaryschool.

As for all speakers, heacknowledged all graduates, plus the challenges of

the last two years where navigating unfamiliar terrain brought previously

unknown challenges.

Incredibly important was congratulating everyone on making it out the

other side, inthe face ofthe unknown when, as ayear, they regained

footing on multiple occasions and soldiered on. This wasatestament to the

strength of the year group.

Equally important were achievements gained, excelling in circumstances

thattried their best to hinder such successes.Thomas said while times have

been tough, those involved had proven tougher,with standards held to.

Appreciation and encouragementwas giventothe year group,and to what

they can achievegoing forward. Also acknowledged were the teachers and

the importanceofstill having ateacher physically in aclassroom, to support

information becoming knowledge through understanding.

With the Year 13 Graduation Dinner cancelled, Thomas also referred to

this being the last time he would speak to the year group as Head Boy, an

opportunityhethanked his peers and the staff for, saying it had been atrue

honour and one he wasthankful to be entrusted with.

Also recognised was this being the last time they would all be gathered in

one place, knowing this to be the last time of seeing some faces again, but

saying thatthe associatedmemories would last alifetime. Without all of the

activities, classroom time, lunchtime activities and friends these memories

wouldn’t exist.

Thomas said school had been ablast,with all hereresponsible forthat.

Thomas concluded,saying–

VinakaVakaLevu, KalougataTiko.

Thank youall,good luckfor thefuture.

Armistice Day WWI fallen remembered

DANIEL.TOBIN

@ashburtoncourier.co.nz

Returned servicepersonnel and

members of the public gathered

at the cenotaph in downtown

Ashburtonlast weekto

commemorate Armistice Day.

Armistice Day acknowledges

the signing of an armistice

between The Allies and

Germany and the ending of the

World War Iin1918.

On the 11th hour of the 11th

day of the 11th month,the guns

fell silent.

Although Anzac Day has

becomethe main day to

remember the fallen of WWI,

New Zealand continues to mark

Armistice Day everyyear.

Around50people took part in

the Ashburton ceremony which

started with two minutes of

silence after the townclock

struckeleven.

RSA president Merv Brenton

and Ashburton District Council

deputymayor Liz McMillan gave

speeches,then wreaths were

laid on the steps of the cenotaph

and The Last Post was played by

Jim Lischner.

Members of the Ashburton

Cadet Unit and Ashburton Air

Training Corp’s 24 Squadron

were also involved.

Mr Brentonsaid although

there were no WWI veterans

alive now it was stillimportant

to remembertheir sacrifice.

‘‘The veterans didn'ttalk

about it much, but if you watch

the movies like Peter Jackson’s

RSA presidentMerv Brenton speaks at the Armistice Day commemorations held at the Ashburton cenotaph.

(They ShallNot GrowOld) it just

shows why they didn't talk, it

was horrendous, today warfare

is totally different, in those days

it was reallyhand to hand.’’

Ms McMillan said at the start

of WWI there were 12,000

people living in the Ashburton

districtand 500 locals were

killed in thatwar.

‘‘Ithas had ahuge impact on

the district, so we are hereto

commemorate what they did

and the sacrifices they madefor

us.’’

Artistic flare for

Chorus cabinets

Two Ashburton

eye­catching

murals, and

another twomore

Designs by local

artistsGeorgette

werechosen by

initiative.

Georgette’s strikingdesign

appears on aSeafield Road

cabinet and celebratesthe

history of theAshburton

Airport.

“ManyKiwis have learnt to

flyinthe AshburtonDistrict.

During WWII, Ashburton's

airport became atraining

certainly had apicturesque

backdrop to trainin,”she

says.

Entitled Kiwis CanFly, the

mural features anative Kiwi

flying aTiger Moth over the

Canterbury Plains, which

Georgettebelieves must’ve

been quite distracting for

pilots during WWII.

Theother completed mural

by Melanie, entitled Pollen

honey bee and features

delicate manuka flowers.

Thiscan be foundin

Mayor Neil Brown says the

“We know that these

App helps to manage weed

Anew free web app has been

designed to help farmers,

landowners and regional councils

manage acostly weed that has

resisted eradication efforts in New

Zealand for over acentury.

Nassella tussock (Nassella

trichotoma) occurs in drought­prone

grasslands, mainly in the Canterbury

and Marlborough regions.

It is unique in that it is the only

weedinNew Zealand to have had its

own Act of Parliament, the Nassella

Tussock Act 1946. The Act legislated

for the establishment of the

Marlborough and North Canterbury

Nassella Tussock Boards tocoordinate

central government­funded

control programmes, aresponsibility

now resting with the regional

councilsthrough Regional Pest

Management programmesunderthe

Biosecurity Act 1993.

Thehistoricalcontrol programmes

have substantially reduced the

weed’s populations.

Although eradication has proven

elusive, a17­year study in

Canterbury, published in 2016,

showed that the population density of

the weed across 878 invaded farms in

the Hurunui District is stable at

about 15 plants per hectare. Grubbing

of the plants hasbeen responsiblefor

maintaining the equilibrium

according to on­farmexperiments

and modelling.

Left uncontrolled, the modelling

indicates that the weed’s populations

will increase, potentially reaching

the economically damaging

monocultures of the past.

The new app, developed by

AgResearchwith funding from the

Ministry of Business Innovation and

Employment in collaboration with

Nassella tussock occurs in drought­prone grasslands and mainly in the

Canterbury and Marlboroughregions.

PHOTOSUPPLIED

Environment Canterbury, provides a

tool to visualise arangeofgrubbing

strategies.

The app deploys apopulation

model that counts the numberof

nassella tussock plants in summer

and winter in each of seven different

life stages of the tussock and keeps

track of their contribution to thetotal

tussock population oversuccessive

years.

EnvironmentCanterbury

biosecurity officer MattSmith says

nassella tussock wassuch an issue in

the mid­20th Century that some

North Canterbury farmers

abandoned theirproperties because

they were no longerprofitable.

Many decades of hard worksince

then have returned plant numbers to

amanageable level.

The app can be found via the

nassella tussock page on the AgPest

website.

Infilledpits contaminate soil

Acompletedresearchproject about

historical landuseinthe Ashburton

Districthas found themost common

sourceofsoilcontaminationwas

infilledpits.

Affectedpropertyownershave

been sent letters outlining their

property’s history andits inclusion

on theListed LandUse Register.

Regional councils throughout New

Zealand are responsible for

identifying potentially

contaminated land and making this

knowledge publicly available. Many

of the urban sitesinthe district have

already been identified.

The latest research used aerial

imagery, so the new information

mostly relatestorural­based

activities best­seenfromtheair,

such as sheepdips,farmrubbishpits

andhorticultural land uses. It

identified about 1400 sites where

hazardous substances might have

been used.

Of these, 700wereinfilled pits

which may have been filled with

rubbish or uncontrolled materials,

around 500weresheep dipsorspray

race operations, and around70were

horticultural sites where persistent

sprays may have been used.

The results areconsistentwith

what’s been foundelsewhere in

Canterbury.

“Property owners have aright to

know thehistoric use of theirland.

It’sour role to record that

information and let the landowner

know,” Environment Canterbury

(ECan) contaminated land science

team leader Graham Aveyard said.

“This is the starting point of a

process which identifies land that

has beenusedfor activities that

mayleadtocontamination.

“I wouldlike to reiterate that

most people will not need to do

anything. It’s only if you’re

considering subdividing or

distributing the soil on asitewhen

you’d need to contact the

Ashburton District Council for

advice,’’ Mr Aveyard said.

The research focused on the

Ministry for the Environment’s

Hazardous Activities &Industries

List (HAIL).This caninclude

formermarketgardensand

orchards,landfillsand rubbish

pits,sheepdips, timbertreatment

sites,gasworks, fuel suppliers and

service stations.

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is reminding

landowners to make sure water from irrigation

systems are not spraying across the highway.

It’saseasonal reminder with the irrigation

season well under way.

Waka Kotahi maintenance contract manager

for Mid and South Canterbury John Keenan

said as well as being wasteful of water, it can

create aslippery surface on awarm, sunny day.

Motorcyclists and cyclists in particular need

to takecare on wet roads.

‘‘If drivers see spray water hitting the

highway,slow down and let us know so we can

contact the land­owner,” he said.

and widened.

“This section of Thompsons Track was

heavily damaged in May’s flooding event

and needs to be repaired as amatter of

priority.”

Rehabilitation of sealed roads is done to

“The pour around the historic hall went

have donated to ATEC’s Raise

the Bargrant fundfor thelast

six years.

‘‘I can’t thank ourbusiness

partners enough for their

tremendous support,’’ ATEC

general manager Roger Farr

said.

The fund’s aim was to assist

local, not forprofit,

performanceorganisationsto

have access to the very best

technical support ATEC could

offer, which in turn lifted the

standard of the production to a

higherlevel.

‘‘This supportiseven more

important now in these

difficult times whereaudience

numbershave to be reduced,

whichmeans less revenue to

supportthe production.

‘‘It canbethe difference

betweenthe production

proceedingorbeing

cancelled.’’ Mr Farr said.

Mid Canterbury Children’s

said the grant givenhad

lessened the financial burden

andhad enabled 52 children

What is yourexpectationof

Christmas this year?

Theexpectations society can

place on theChristmas season

are so incredibly powerful

because they capture the

deepest hopesandlongingsof

ourhearts. We want to feel joy;

we crave the comfort of

meaningful human

connection; weneedhopeto

sustain us; we long for faith to

act as theantidote toour

deepest fears; we want our

hearts to be at peace.

Thisyear let’sputaside

unrealisticChristmas

expectations.Instead,let’s

join Jesus. Ican’t promisethe

encounterwillchangeour

circumstances. However,Ican

promise that as we sit quietly

with the Christchild, our

hearts will be changed.

Because graspingthe reality

of God With Us brings comfort.

Graspingthe reality of God

With Us helps usadjust our

expectations. Andgrasping

thereality of GodWith Us

brings serenity, especially

when reality doesn’t meet our

expectations at Christmas.

Birthing hospital

overloaded

An unprecedented 540 births at

Christchurch Women’s Hospital

last month has promptedaplea

for expectant mothers to avoid

giving birththere, if medically

feasible.

Canterbury District Health

Board directorofmidwifery

Norma Campbell is concerned

the numberofwomen using the

birthing facility could

compromise those who needed

the service the most.

‘‘ChristchurchWomen’s

Hospital is for women whoare

higher risk and therefore

require more complex care and

after the volumes of last month,

it would be ideal if women gave

more consideration to their local

community units,’’ she said. The

arrivals lastmonth were the

highest on record.

‘‘For women who are healthy

and expected to give birth to a

healthy baby withnoanticipated

complications, we believe our

community­based birthingunits

provide the ideal environment

for giving birth.

‘‘At the moment in Canterbury

we have anumber of highquality

primary birthing facilities, and a

number of womenalso choose to

give birthathome.’’

New mothersdid not

necessarily have to travel to

Christchurch Women’s Hospital,

with maternity units located in

Lincoln and Rangiora, plus

further afield in Kaikoura and

Ashburton, she said.

Each year more than 5500

womengive birth at

Christchurch Women’s

Hospital, making it the largest

secondary/tertiary hospital in

the South Island.

Last month’s birth rate ­

more than 17 per day ­

eclipsed the previous record

of 530 in August 2008.

The popularity of

Christchurch Women’s

Hospital was evident earlier

this year whenthe Maia

Health Foundation raised

$65,000 for 30 specialist chairs

so support people for new

mothers did not have to sleep

on the floor.

Meanwhile, the New

Zealand College of Midwives

remains on tenterhooks as

members unwillingtobe

vaccinated against Covid­19

sacrificed their careers. A

Ministry of Health order

requires all health care

practitioners ­including

midwives­tobe vaccinated in

order to remain in the

workforce,the deadline to

have the first or two jabs was

11.59pm on November15.

The WalkingSports Festival

will be held atthe EA

NetworksCentre on Saturday,

from 10.30amto4.30pm, and

will feature walking netball,

walking futsal and walking

touch.

Anyone of anyage and

ability can attend and give it a

try at not cost.

Mid Canterbury Netball

netball developmentofficer

Natalie Corbettcameupwith

the idea of afestivaldayafter

seeing how popular walking

netball had become.

She was keen to collaborate

with other sports and Mid

Canterbury Football and

Canterbury Touch had come

on board for the festival.

Walking netball was agreat

option forpeoplewho hadn’t

playedfor years or whohad

injuries that hadstoppedthem

from playing traditional

netball, Natalie said.

It was also agreat way for

people who were not currently

active, and anumberofthose

whowere now regularsstarted

outasgreen prescription

clients.

“It’s an opportunity for other

sports to see there could be a

space for them to do it as well,

and hopefullyitwillgoas well

for them as it has for us,” she

said.

Games will be running

throughout the day and people

can come along and join in

whenever they like, for aslong

as they like.

Walking netball attracted a

wide range of participants. It

runs on aTuesday during

school terms, at 9.30am and

6pm, and was attended by both

men and women ranging in age

from late teens throughto

their70s.

“Walkingnetballcaters to

allabilities.Wesometimes

have mumswhohavebeen

playing netball for years,

playing alongside people who

have never touchedanetball

before in their lives,” shesaid.

“Butwalkingnetballcan be

just aschallenging fora

premier netballer as it is for

anyone else.

‘‘It’s harder thanyou think

to stop yourselffromrunning

andjumping.”

The walking versions ofall

threesports on offer are a

slower pace and alower

impact,comparedtotheir

traditional versions, meaning

so many more people can

participate.

Ashburton Courier, November 18, 2021

Ashburton Lions

Club President Roger Patersonwelcomed

everyone and opened this month’s meeting

with a happy event; the induction of new

member David Ward, sponsored by Mark

Holmes and sworn in by Garth Bateup.

Stuart Dunlop spoke about his recent visit

to the new Ashburton disc golf course, which

is located on the Smallbone Drive Reserve

near EA Networks Centre. Stuart reported that

the game is easy to pick up using discs hired

for a nominal course from the Networks

Centre. The course was constructed with

funds from a variety of sponsors including

Ashburton Lions Club.

PresidentRoger reminds everyonethat he

has no intention of carrying on as President

next year and invites members who are

interested in takingonmore senior roles within

the Club to come along with him to the 202J

District Training Forum on Saturday 27th

November in Oamaru.

Rod Green provided an update on Grace

Leahy, the young woman that the Club

(funded) to attend this year’s Outward Bound

course. Grace was unable to attend this

evening but sent her gratitude and a short

message saying how much she had got out of

the course, which included sailing around the

Marlborough sounds, climbing and marathon

running. She spokeofhow the course boosted

her confidence and self-esteem, and how she

is now planning to train as asocial worker in

order to help foster children like herself.

The District Governor’s representative

Jules Ellis gave the club an update of what our

District Governor hopes to achieve, and also

information about our new International President

Douglas Alexander. He also gave abrief

talk about how the Club might direct its

development over the coming year, and of the

need to spread the workload out beyond

Board members. He spoke passionately about

how aLion joins the organisation twice; once

at their induction, and again when they find

their own ‘tug of the heart’ moment in giving

service that really means something tothem.

Balance sheets were accepted for Admin

and the Charitable Trust, and board decisions

for put forward the names of Garth Bateup for

1st Vice District Governor and Graham Edge

as returning Trustee for 202J for the Lloyd

Morgan Charitable Trust were endorsed.

Ray Swan spoke about his chequered

time in teaching inSingapore, the Philippines

and in particular Dubai with Jenny. From

stories of green slime running out of the air

conditioning to Ray being the proud owner of

an Alcoholic’s License, Ray and Jenny clearly

never had adull moment and came back to

see New Zealand with fresh eyes.

In announcements, we learned that the

Government is granting Ashburton Lions

$5,500 towards marketing of the South Island

Motorhome Show. Tail Twisters duties were

Lions District Governor

representative Jules Ellis

performed byChristine Milne and Lois Sparrow,

who showed their displeasure with

memberswho didn’twear ties to club or watch

enough sport on TV.

Mid Canterbury Ladies Friendship Club

President Julie welcomed members to a

recent meeting ofthe Friendship Club. Birthdays

and anniversaries were celebrated after

the singing of the National Anthem. The

almoner, Therese, gave an update on the

health of members. There were many donations

of cleaning products to be taken up to

Ronald McDonald House.

Members were reminded of the coffee

morning,and the trip to Orari for the Christmas

meal after our December meeting. There will

also be atrip to Peel Forest to view the lilies

and the church.

The raffle was drawn and the mini

speakers were Betty and Gwen, orperhaps I

should call them Daisy and Daphne. They

entertained us with ahumorous sketch called

‘Everything in the Garden is Lovely’. With a

few minutes to spare before morning tea

Marion showed usatin of reduced cream and

asked us to guess where it came from. When

we heard the answer we wonderedwhy cream

would come from Mexico.

Our main speaker was Judy from Anglican

Advocacy who told us all about her role.

Anglican Advocacy is aunit of Anglican Care,

one of the largest faith-based and nongovernment

providers of social services in

Canterbury. The advocacy has been in

Ashburton since 2019. Their purpose is to

navigate and services are free. To empower a

person and give them the tools. They help

people to do it for themselves, itmay involve

budgeting, or appointments at Housing NZ

and Ministry of Social Development and other

places. Julie thanked Judy for her presentation

and gave her afruit and vegetable tray.

The thought for the month was ‘‘The kiss

of the sun for pardon, the song of the birds for

mirth, One is nearer God’s heart in agarden

than anywhere else on earth.’’

Next meeting is December 8, if you would

like to join us phone Julie 308 4254 or Rae 308

8927.

NEWS

44 Ashburton Courier, November 18, 2021

Vaccine rules

take effect

Vaccine mandates cameinto

effect thisweek, amid

nationwideprotests and

hundreds of new Covid­19

cases.

The MinistryofHealth this

week announced arecord 222

cases on Tuesday, and the

death of apatient at Auckland

City Hospital. The patient, in

their late­70s, was admitted to

hospital on November 11 and

subsequently tested positive

for Covid­19.

The cases were all in the

North Island but as theDelta

outbreak continues to spread,

protesters aroundthe country

have continued to taketothe

streets to decry vaccination

mandatessuch as the latest

impacting on theeducation

sector.

As of this week teachers and

other education staff, as well

as thoseinthe health and

disability sectors, must have

had at least one covid

vaccination dose. Theymust be

fully vaccinated by January 1.

Mid Canterbury principals

association spokesperson

Rebekah Clementsaid schools

around the Ashburton District

had been impacted by the

mandates.

‘‘Schoolswill have made

varyingarrangements

depending on the usual role of

the staff member and what is

needed to ensure minimal

impact on student learning,’’

she said.

Although visitors inside

school gates had beenlimited

for quite sometime, there were

now rules in place for people

helping with education outside

the classroom programmes.

‘‘It adds an extra

complication to making

arrangements for 2022, but I’m

sure schools will work through

this the bestway they can and

with the interests of both

learners and their team in

mind, whilst following any

employment requirements,’’

she said.

Under the mandates, and

when the new traffic light

system starts, businesses will

also be able to introduce

mandates and require staff to

be vaccinated.

Ministry data shows 94

percent of eligible people in

the Canterbury District Health

Board area, which includes

Mid Canterbury,have had

their first vaccination and 82

percent their second dose.

In South Canterbury 89

percent have had their first

dose, and80percent their

second.

Hundreds of Cantabrians

took to the streets of

Christchurch last Saturday to

protest against Covid­19

lockdowns, restrictions and

vaccine mandates.They

marched fromChristchurch's

Cathedral Square to Latimer

Square.

Freedom &Rights Coalition

organisers plananother

gathering again this Saturday.

Vet for Ashburton

Ashburtonisset to get a

graduate vet as part of the

voluntary bonding scheme for

Agriculture and Rural

Communities MinisterDamien

O’Connor saidsuccessful

recipients will each receive

funding of $55,000 overfive

years, in abid to help ease the

shortage of veterinarians

workingwith production

animals in our regions.

‘‘It’s well known thatthere’s

arealneed for vets, especially

in ruralareas,” Mr O’Connor

said.

“Since it began12years ago,

the Voluntary Bonding Scheme

forVeterinarians hasmade a

big difference in attracting

and retaining graduate vetsto

rural communities thatcanbe

challenging to recruit staff.

The programme is

delivered by the Ministry for

Primary Industries and since

inception had supported384

graduate vets tostart their

careers working with

production animalsinrural
