Property access<br />

sours relationship<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

The Hurunui­based Rural Advocacy<br />

Network (RAN) saysthe relationship<br />

between the rural community and<br />

Environment <strong>Canterbury</strong> (ECan), has<br />

taken amajorstep backwards.<br />

The group saysanumberof<br />

landowners have been subjected to<br />

forcedaccess by ECan staff underthe<br />

threatofpoliceescortand body cameras.<br />

‘‘These are respected farming families<br />

who had not broken any rules.<br />

‘‘Theyhad deniedaccess to ECan staff<br />

because of major issueswith the way that<br />

ECan operates,’’ says RAN.<br />

The issues, outlinedinastatement<br />

from RAN to the <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> <strong>News</strong><br />

are:<br />

EvidenceofECan staff gathering,<br />

using and sharingprivate property<br />

informationunrelatedtothe purpose of<br />

their visit, withoutthe knowledge of the<br />

landowners and often to the detriment of<br />

the landowners.<br />

ECan staff being instructed by senior<br />

management to reportnon compliance<br />

issuesregardless if it was relatedtothe<br />

purpose of their visit or whether the staff<br />

were trainedincompliance. This<br />

directive was acontributing factor to<br />

some ECan staff quitting their jobs.<br />

Landowners feelingthey have been<br />

unfairly treatedand persecuted over<br />

complianceissues for manyyears.<br />

ECan undertaking mappingand<br />

regulatory zoningswithout consultation<br />

or aproper planning process. ECan<br />

recently lostHigh Court and Courtof<br />

Appeal cases over their flawedriverbed<br />

zonings and the wetland mappingwas<br />

withdrawn in part because landowners<br />

started denying access.<br />

RAN says acouple of years ago it<br />

collated ‘‘extensive evidence of<br />

landowners subject to unfair and<br />

inappropriate treatment by ECan’’.<br />

In ameetingwith the seniormanager<br />

of all field staffheadmittedthere was a<br />

culture problem within ECan,the group<br />

says.<br />

‘‘Heset about fixing the problems in<br />

ECanbut left the organisation shortly<br />

after.’’<br />

RAN claims ECanoperatesin‘‘a<br />

climate of fear’’.<br />

‘‘People in <strong>Canterbury</strong> are subject to a<br />

smotheringamount of compliance, much<br />

of it unworkable.<br />

‘‘Consent and planning processes have<br />

become so complex that the system is<br />

collapsing.<br />

‘‘Land use consents are on hold, farm<br />

plan audits are on hold.<br />

‘‘There is widespread loss of trust in<br />

ECan.<br />

‘‘However because of the climate of<br />

fear created by ECan, very few peopleare<br />

prepared to speak out,’’ the group saysin<br />

the statement.<br />

‘‘Over the past12months RAN has<br />

supported many landowners that have<br />

been subjecttoharrowing experiences<br />

with ECan.<br />

‘‘We are aware of some seriousmental<br />

wellbeingissuesresulting fromECan's<br />

actions and we are working alongside the<br />

RuralSupport Trust.<br />

‘‘RANurgedECan not to go ahead with<br />

the forced access becauseofthe welfare<br />

issues, howeverECan rejected our<br />

request.<br />

‘‘This places the field staff in adifficult<br />

and untenable position.<br />

‘‘RANurgesthat no nastycommentsbe<br />

directed at ECan staff and thatpeople<br />

should be respectful at all times.<br />

‘‘Theproblems lies withthe senior<br />

management of ECan who have<br />

consistently failed to address serious<br />

problems within their organisation.’’<br />

RAN says all it is seeking is afair and<br />

proper process, workable regulations,<br />

respect, and empathy for the people.<br />

RAN is collating evidence of where<br />

unfair or inappropriate actions by ECan<br />

are havingserious mental wellbeing<br />

impacts on people.<br />

ECan has toldthe <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> <strong>News</strong><br />

that on occasion, staffmust exercise<br />

their statutory authority when accessing<br />

properties to fulfillits regulatory<br />

responsibilities.<br />

‘‘Overthe pastthree monthsthis has<br />

occurred on asmallnumber of <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> farms,’’ says Nick Daniels,<br />

ECan general manager of field<br />

operations.<br />

He saysoccasionally landownerswill<br />

objecttostaff accessing property.<br />

‘‘In all cases, we seek to work with<br />

landowners to discuss their concerns and<br />

the purpose for the visit.Staff always<br />

carefullyconsider the needtoaccess<br />

private propertywhichneedstobe<br />

clearly justifiedunder the relevant<br />

legislation.’’<br />

Mr Danielssays since its creation in<br />

1991, ECanhas regulatory<br />

responsibilities under both the Resource<br />

Management Act and Biosecurity Act.<br />

‘‘BothActs provide mechanismsfor<br />

staff to enterprivate property to fulfil<br />

council responsibilities.’’<br />

Mr Danielssays eachyear ECan staff<br />

undertake thousands of propertyvisits to<br />

meet its regulatory responsibilities.<br />

‘‘In avery small number of cases<br />

landowners have raised objections to<br />

how thiswork is being carried out.’’<br />

‘‘Ifmembers of the public have<br />

concerns about how our staff are<br />

exercisingthese responsibilities, we<br />

welcome them to get in touch directly. In<br />

someinstances,members of the public<br />

are unaware of our responsibilities. In<br />

other instances, we can make<br />

improvements to how we carry out these<br />

responsibilities.’’<br />

Mr Daniels says ECan staff visit<br />

properties for severalreasons –<br />

sometimes at the request of landowners,<br />

and othertimes to help keep people,<br />

properties, and the environment safe.<br />

‘‘Wehave alegal requirement to<br />

monitor and report on things such as<br />

consent compliance, biosecurity risks,<br />

and respond to environmentalconcerns<br />

fromthe community. We also undertake<br />

thiswork to meetthe expectations of the<br />

community,asset out in the plans we<br />

develop with the community,’’ saysMr<br />

Daniels.<br />

‘‘Weaim to advise landownersofour<br />

intention prior to visiting, to ensure<br />

they’reaware of the reason for the visit.<br />

‘‘This is donevia telephone, mail, or<br />

email.’’<br />

Mr Daniels says he is not aware of any<br />

inappropriate or illegalsharing of<br />

information.<br />

‘‘Ifanyoneisconcerned about this,we<br />

encouragethem to get in touch so we can<br />

workthrough these concerns.’’<br />

He says it is goodpractice for staff to<br />

takerecords during apropertyvisit.<br />

their managers or otherappropriate<br />

Underpass option ruled out<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

An underpass has beenruled outunder<br />

State Highway One at thebusy Pukeko<br />

Junction at Leithfield.<br />

AWaka Kotahi (NewZealandTransport<br />

Agency) representative visiting Leithfield<br />

School, James Caygilltold pupilsduring a<br />

visit an underpass couldnot be installed<br />

because of the cost and highwater table.<br />

He saidthere werethree other options<br />

to makethe intersection safer —buildan<br />

overpass, leave the intersectionasitisbut<br />

make crossing it safer, or find another way<br />

to get to school—but WakaKotahi was not<br />

able to help with any of theseoptions at<br />

this time.<br />

The agency’s Christchurch­based<br />

director of regional relationships, James<br />

Caygill, was visiting the school with<br />

Hurunui District Mayor, Marie Black, and<br />

Hurunui District Council road safety coordinator,<br />

Dean Eades, last week, to meet<br />

with pupilswho wantanunderpass at the<br />

100kphsectionofStateHighwayOne so<br />

pupilsliving at LeithfieldBeach can cross<br />

the highwaysafelytogotoschool.<br />

They said they feltunsafe because of the<br />

‘‘busycarswhich would not stop,’’ and they<br />

wantedtomake the intersection safer for<br />

everyone in thecommunity. Their talk<br />

ended when they asked the visitors if it<br />

would take someone to die at the<br />

intersection before it was madesafer.<br />

Mrs Blacktold the children they had<br />

come to listen, and theirmessages were<br />

very powerful.<br />

Mr Caygill acknowledged Pukeko<br />

Junction was an extremelydangerous<br />

section of the highway but said there were<br />

more dangerousareas of the highway and,<br />

with alimited budget, funds had to be<br />

prioritised.<br />

He saidthe Governmentwas proposing<br />

to lower speed limits aroundschools in<br />

new legislation, but their school did not<br />

qualify becauseitwas too far away from<br />

Under the legislation the Government<br />

plans to make it easierfor local<br />

communities to set safe speed limits<br />

around schools to help children get to and<br />

fromschool safely, whichincludes making<br />

streetsoutside schools safer by requiring<br />

speed limitsaround urban schools to be<br />

reducedto30kph, or to amaximumof<br />

40kph where appropriate, and to a<br />

maximum of 60 km/h around rural schools.<br />

Mr Caygill advised the children to<br />

continue their fighttomake the Pukeko<br />

Junction intersection safer to cross.He<br />

encouraged them to get the community<br />

involved and lobbythe Minister of<br />

Education ChrisHipkins to change the<br />

rules around eligibility for school<br />

transport assistance to allow abus service<br />

at the school .<br />

‘‘The realityisthe safest way for you to<br />

get to school is by car or bus,’’ he said.<br />

Mr Caygill asked what pupils thought<br />

neededtohappen to make the intersection<br />

safer and he was quickly reminded of their<br />

earlier questionatthe beginningofthe<br />

meeting.<br />

‘‘A kid or someone needs to die. That is<br />

what it will taketoactually get something<br />

done,’’ one of the pupilssaid.<br />

‘‘Thatisavery sad answer,’’ Mr Caygill<br />

After talking with Paul &Deb owners of Cactus Cars, Ifeel they’re<br />

really passionate about helping people. Deb said it’s about “putting<br />

people before dollars and really helping where you can” No<br />

questions and No judgements<br />

Paul told me, many vehicle owners appear to be unsure how to,<br />

when to or what to maintain on their cars or what the costs should<br />

be. Some saying there feeling more and more uncomfortable with<br />

the raising costs of servicing and WOF repairs.<br />

Paul said he seen many repair quotes recently, where the cost<br />

appears to be just getting out of control and too expensive for many<br />

people. Leaving some people with no choice but to drive unsafe &<br />

un-warranted cars and it’s just Not right. Paul said he feels many<br />

repairs just don’t need to cost asmall fortune.<br />

Paul, Deb & the team at Cactus Cars understand vehicle<br />

maintenance, have the latest equipment and diagnostic scanners<br />

to service &fix pretty much anything and have the experience to<br />

understand how to get the job done properly without having to<br />

charge asmall fortune.<br />

Paul said it doesn’t matter whether you’ve purchased acar from thereDealership or you’re adirectcustomer of their workshop or panel<br />

Academic year ends<br />

without ceremony<br />

As 2<strong>02</strong>1drawstoaclose,italso brings<br />

to the end the academic yearfor many<br />

of our students.<br />

The tradition for schoolsinour<br />

district is to hostanend­of­year<br />

celebration ceremony.<br />

This year however, the guidelinesto<br />

managepublic gatheringshas<br />

curtailed the ability for schoolsto<br />

celebrate in the traditionalmanner.<br />

In the past it has been aprivilege to<br />

attendthese functions to recognise the<br />

educationalexcellence of the students.<br />

Iwould like to extend to all school<br />

leavers good wishes as you embark on<br />

the next steps of your educational<br />

journey. Stepping into anew<br />

environment will bringamixture of<br />

excitement and tension.<br />

However both are appropriateasyou<br />

followyour dreams and contribute to<br />

your successful life journey.<br />

Thank you to all educators. Iam<br />

grateful for your dedication and<br />

determination to ensure our young<br />

minds are curiousand well equipped<br />

for theirfutures.<br />

Over the weekend Ihad the privilege<br />

to attend the Waikari Hospital 100 year<br />

celebration afternoon tea.<br />

Dr CharlesLittle, whose statute<br />

standsinfront of the hospital,fell<br />

victimtothe 1918influenza epidemic<br />

as he assisted and relieved those<br />

sufferingfrom the influenza. There is a<br />

certain irony that we are currently<br />

facingaglobal pandemic and the<br />

that the countiesofCheviot, Amuri,<br />

and Waiparaconsidered thatthey<br />

were getting poor return for the<br />

hospital ratesthey were paying.<br />

‘‘A proposal that the three counties<br />

shouldget severance from the <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> Hospital Board district<br />

was taken up with considerable favour,<br />

and sympathetically received by the<br />

Minister of Hospitals”.<br />

It went on to say that “the doorsof<br />

the hospital wereopenedbyMrs Evans<br />

on 2nd September 1920’’.<br />

Interestingly Mr and Mrs Little were<br />

obliged to reside at the Great <strong>North</strong>ern<br />

Hotel untilfour residents of Waikari,<br />

MessrsAnderson, Earl, Arresand<br />

Holland undertook to see to the<br />

building of adoctor’sresidence and<br />

the Waipara County Council agreed to<br />

take over, afterobtaining the<br />

necessarypower to do so.<br />

This was the beginningofcounty<br />

councils providingadoctor’shouse in<br />

country districts.<br />

This is not too distant from what we<br />

do today in supportofthe provision of<br />

quality health services for our<br />

communities. No doubt the hospital<br />

holds storiesclose to the heartsof<br />

many people, as it has brought many<br />

new lives intothe world.<br />

But with the reduction of the<br />

birthing unit, it will alsohold special<br />

Areliable protein<br />

Starting in <strong>December</strong> and finishing<br />

around February every year, pasture<br />

will inevitably increase in NDF% and<br />

reduce it’s ME content, as well as drop<br />

the crude protein percentage. Milk<br />

production can decrease significantly<br />

depending on the pasture<br />

management, but even in the best<br />

managed pastures, the willingness of<br />

the grass to go reproductive cannot be<br />

stopped.<br />

These conditions are areal<br />

challenge for the cows to be able to<br />

maintain milk production. In ahigh<br />

pay­out year like this one, avoiding<br />

this drop over the summer period is a<br />

no brainer. But how…?<br />

Inside the rumen, bacteria have<br />

specific requirements of ammonia<br />

(between 10 ­15 mg/dl) that need to be<br />

supplied constantly over a24­hour<br />

period in order to digest the feed and<br />

multiply.<br />

By including Optisync in the cow’s<br />

diet during this short period will help<br />

increase the rumen bacteria numbers<br />

which will lead to improved pasture<br />

utilisation and animal performance.<br />

Optisync is aunique “slow release”<br />

rumen degradable protein source<br />

designed to safely feed and meet the<br />

requirements of the rumen bacteria.<br />

As consequence, the rumen bacteria<br />

will not only effectively digest the<br />

grass, but will also increase the<br />

bacteria population by 10­20 %,<br />

supplying the cow with the protein<br />

and energy that she needs to keep<br />

producing milk, maintain pregnancy<br />

and start adding body condition.<br />

Data from anew meta­analysis for<br />

ruminants based on the results of 17<br />

studies carried out in six different<br />

countries, showed that Optisync, a<br />

non­protein nitrogen ingredient, can<br />

replace vegetable protein sources and<br />

enable dairy producers to<br />

simultaneously improve animal<br />

performance, reduce their carbon<br />

Matt Cassineri<br />

footprint and increase profitability.<br />

Generally, 100 grams of Optisync<br />

could replace 0.9 kilograms (or 900<br />

grams) of soya (46% CP) or 1kilogram<br />

of Canloa (35% CP).<br />

The meta­analysis highlighted, how<br />

with Optisync, there was aconsistent<br />

improvement in feed efficiency (3%),<br />

increased nitrogen use efficiency for<br />

milk production by 4%, while<br />

increasing profitability and reducing<br />

the environmental impact.<br />

The rumen bacteria do take time to<br />

respond, an adaptation period of 5­7<br />

days is recommended. It also depends<br />

on the rest of the diet composition.<br />

Generally, one would expect to see<br />

improvements in fibre digestion after<br />

10­12 days of using Optisync.<br />

Barley grass ... The seed heads can cause problems for pets when the weather is hot and<br />

the grass is dry.<br />

Barleygrass is adanger<br />

to pets in thesummer<br />

Pets should be kept well away from long<br />

dry grass in the summer months, says a<br />

Culverden vet.<br />

That is because barley grass seed,<br />

which is abundant in long grass at this<br />

time of year is dangerous for pets<br />

because of the sharp bristle­like seeds<br />

which can easily attach to pets’ fur and<br />

if not removed quickly can burrow into<br />

the skin.<br />

‘‘The best way to prevent this from<br />

happening is to keep pets away from<br />

long grass,’’ says Alana Drury, of the<br />

Culverden <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> Vet Clinic.<br />

Barley seeds are aproblem all year<br />

round, but particularly at this time of<br />

the year when the weather is hot and the<br />

grass is dry with brittle, sharp seeds.<br />

Alana recommends pet owners do<br />

regular checks of their animals if they<br />

have been playing in long grass to make<br />

sure seeds haven’t attached to the fur.<br />

Particular care should be taken to<br />

check behind the animal’s head, around<br />

the ears and eyes, between the toes, in<br />

the groin area and armpits. Long­haired<br />

dogs are particualry susceptible<br />

because the seeds are more difficult to<br />

see.<br />

The seeds can be removed easily if<br />

they are attached to the fur but removal<br />

from other, more sensitive areas, will<br />

require emergency veterinary<br />

attention.<br />

If the seeds are not removed<br />

immediately they can create serious<br />

problems by penetrating the skin and<br />

causing an abcess to develop which will<br />

also require emergency veterinary care.<br />

Sometimes the seeds can lay dormant<br />

under the skin for months before<br />

causing aproblem. Seeds can become<br />

buried under the skin and can even<br />

track along under the skin to adifferent<br />

part of the body, from the foot into the<br />

chest area, for example, which is<br />

particularly dangerous for the animal.<br />

Alana said the Culverden Clinic has<br />

had afew woolly farm dogs come into<br />

the surgery in the last few weeks to get<br />

barley grass seeds removed.<br />

They have now been clipped to make<br />

it easier to spot and remove the seeds<br />

before they become aproblem.<br />

‘‘Clipping their fur is agood way to<br />

make checking for grass seed easier,’’<br />

Alana said.

Please takecarethis festive season<br />

The festive season is agreat time of year andisfun forthe family,petsincluded. During this time we introduce lots of items into our homes thatwe<br />

don’t normally have.Some of these things canbepotentially harmfultoour pets.Below arejustsome of the dangers, although each toxicitycaseis<br />

different-itgoeswithoutsaying; if your petdoes getinto mischief andconsumes anyofthese items, the first thing to do is contactyour vetfor advice.<br />

Lilies are really toxic to cats,<br />

they cause kidney failure.<br />

Every part of the plant is<br />

harmful to acat, including the<br />

pollen which may be ingested<br />

whilst grooming themselves.<br />

Other festive plants that<br />

are harmful to pets include<br />

poinsettias, ivy & mistletoe.<br />

Decorations: Tinsel is<br />

dangerous if swallowed, it can<br />

wrap around the tongue or<br />

anchor itself in the stomach,<br />

rendering it unable to pass<br />

through the intestines.<br />

Edible ornaments, candy<br />

canes, chocolate coins also<br />

are harmful to our pets.<br />

Ingestion of grapes in any form,<br />

ie currants, sultanas, raisins,<br />

juice,can cause kidney failure.<br />

If you suspect ingestion call your<br />

vet straight away to give them<br />

the best chance of recovery.<br />

Treatment needs to begin before<br />

toxins have been absorbed.<br />

Some mushrooms can be<br />

toxic or agastrointestinal<br />

irritant, hallucinogenic, or<br />

cause acute liver failure.<br />

Garlic and onions can cause<br />

stomach upset and anemia.<br />

The cob of sweetcorn can<br />

cause aserious intestinal<br />

blockage.<br />

Stone fruits, seeds, pips and<br />

nuts can be achoking hazard<br />

or cause agastrointestinal<br />

obstruction. The stones, stems<br />

and leaves can contain cyanide,<br />

which carries atoxicity risk.<br />

Nuts are high in fats which can<br />

result in vomiting,diarrhoea, and<br />

pancreatitis.<br />

Pets can get alcohol from many<br />

sources: rotten fruit, fermented<br />

products and alcoholic desserts,<br />

or spilled drinks. Adog’sliver<br />

and kidneys are not meant to<br />

process alcohol (ethanol). Even a<br />

small amount can result in severe<br />

consequences.<br />

Christmas mince pies, cake<br />

and pudding are dangerous<br />

for three main reasons:<br />

1. They are full of dried<br />

grapes which are toxic!<br />

2. They are full of fats which<br />

can cause stomach upsets.<br />

3. They may containalcohol!<br />

Cooked bones become brittle,<br />

they splinter easily and can get<br />

stuck causing an obstruction, gut<br />

irritation, constipation, diarrhoea<br />

and intestinal perforation. Asmall<br />

amout of fatty meat left on a<br />

discarded bone cancause a<br />

gastrointestinal upset.<br />

Chocolate is toxic and can be<br />

life-threatening for pets.Caffine in<br />

chocolate alsocontributes to its<br />

toxicity.The high fat content can<br />

also lead to pancreatitis. Xylitol,<br />

found in “sugar free” products<br />

causes alife-threatening rapid<br />

drop in blood sugar levels and<br />

can cause liver damage.<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Satisfy Food Rescue is ‘‘excited’’ the<br />

proposed KaiapoiCommunityHub is a<br />

step closertobecomingareality.<br />

The Kaiapoi­SeftonCommunity Board<br />

approved afinal draft concept last month<br />

for the proposedhub, which will be<br />

located between Charters Streetand<br />

Courtenay Drive.<br />

‘‘We are excitedtobepart of a<br />

community collaboration and to get a<br />

dedicated base built for us,’’ SatisfyFood<br />

Rescuemanager Stef van Meer says.<br />

‘‘We are very luckytobe able to<br />

connect with like­minded groups to<br />

develop aspacethat worksfor us and for<br />

the community.’’<br />

Satisfy Food Rescue is one of three<br />

groupsworking with the Waimakariri<br />

District Council to developthe<br />

community hub concept.<br />

The other groups are the Kaiapoi<br />

Croquet Cluband the KaiapoiMenz<br />

Shed, but thereisplenty of room for more<br />

groups, WaimakaririDistrict Council<br />

community and recreation manager<br />

Chris Brown says.<br />

‘‘We are agrowing district and it’s<br />

getting moredifficult for hobby groups to<br />

buy land and set up abase.<br />

‘‘Thisisawaycouncilcan help to<br />

ensurethere’s opportunitiesfor social<br />

wellbeing.’’<br />

DeputyMayor NevilleAtkinsonsays<br />

the community hub will be ‘‘a greatasset<br />

for the community’’.<br />

‘‘The croquet club has beeninalmost<br />

dire circumstances since the<br />

earthquakes and the menzshed needs a<br />

permanent home, as they have been<br />

shifted round afew times, and Satisfy just<br />

keepsgrowing.’’<br />

Mr Brown says the concept planwas<br />

completedfollowing consultation on a<br />

preliminary conceptplan earlier in the<br />

year.<br />

The new conceptplan is out for<br />

consultation until <strong>December</strong> 13.<br />

Community feedback will determine<br />

whether more consultation is needed<br />

before the council notifies the resource<br />

consent next year.<br />

Mr Brown says all goingwell,the<br />

consent process couldbecompleted by<br />

the middle of next year, allowingwork to<br />

beginonconstructingthe site.<br />

Acharitable trust will be establishto<br />

run the site, own the buildingsand be<br />

responsible for insurance and<br />

maintenance and have an agreement<br />

with the clubs to use the assets.<br />

‘‘We have spoken to external funding<br />

providersand theylike that model, as it<br />

meansthe trust can show them the wider<br />

communitybenefits,’’MrBrown says<br />

Whilethe council willdevelop the site,<br />

including landscapingand installing<br />

walk ways and carparking, the trust and<br />

the clubs will be responsible for securing<br />

funding for buildings.<br />

‘‘Thesite will stillbeanopen<br />

communityspace, although obviously you<br />

won’tbeable to walk on the croquet<br />

greens,’’ Mr Brown says. ‘‘People will be<br />

abletofreely walkaround the rest of the<br />

siteasthey do now for walkingthe dog or<br />

for general exercise.’’<br />

Sitesecurity, lighting, the orientation<br />

of the buildings, building materials and<br />

aesthetics will all be considered as part<br />

of the consent process.<br />

SUMMER GARDENING<br />

12 <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> <strong>News</strong>, <strong>December</strong> 2, 2<strong>02</strong>1<br />

<strong>December</strong> is great for gardeners<br />

By HENRI HAM,<br />

Awapuni Nurseries<br />

<strong>December</strong> is the perfect month to spend<br />

more timeinthe garden.<br />

The pleasure of learningnew plant<br />

varieties, and discoveriesongardening<br />

approachesisshared among many avid<br />

gardeners.<br />

Ihope these quicktips help you have a<br />

successfulvegetable or flower garden.<br />

Tidy Up<br />

Starttrimming your hedges, small trees,<br />

shrubs and lawn hedges. Deadhead your<br />

flowers and mulch aroundyour plants.<br />

Popular Edibles<br />

It is agreattime to plantfavourites like<br />

cucumbers, tomatoes,chillies,<br />

watermelons, rock melons, sweet cornand<br />

passionfruit.<br />

Stakeyour tomatoes within amonth<br />

afterplantingthem or before they reach a<br />

height of about 250to300mm.<br />

Tomatoesare easy to grow but their<br />

growing stems are quitesoft and sensitive<br />

to damage.Plus,they yield heavycropsso<br />

it’s good to give them early support.<br />

Blossom End Rot Prevention<br />

Acommonmisconceptionisblossom<br />

end rot is afungal plant disease.<br />

One of the causesofblossomend rot is<br />

calcium deficiency and this can happen in<br />

tomatoes, eggplants, melons forexample.<br />

Calcium is avital nutrient in vegetable<br />

plants because it strengthens the cellular<br />

structure in the fruit.<br />

Asidefromnutrient­deficiency, another<br />

possible cause of blossom end rot is over<br />

fertilisation(nitrogen). Too much nitrogen<br />

can meanthe plantdoesn’t absorb its<br />

required levels of calcium.<br />

Inconsistency of watering is another<br />

possible issue. In order to give your plants<br />

the best chances against blossom end rot,<br />

give your plant calcium­richfertilisers.<br />

Keep your plants well­watered.Add mulch<br />

to keep the soilmoist.<br />

Popular edibles ... Time to get planting.<br />

Garlic Lovers<br />

Summer is the best timetoharvestgarlic<br />

—from the end of <strong>December</strong> to early<br />

January.<br />

When the lower, outer leaves turn<br />

yellow or brown, it’stimetoharvestthe<br />

garlic.Loosen the soil around the plant<br />

and carefully pullthem out.<br />

Timing is quite important. When you<br />

harvestthe garlictoo early,it’s likely it<br />

won’t store well. Once harvested, youcan<br />

eat the garlic right away,although some<br />

people leave them on the ground for afew<br />

days to dry it up.<br />

If you intendtostore it forafew days, tie<br />

the bundles togetherand keep themina<br />

cool, dark, dry place with good air<br />

circulation.<br />

BasilSeason<br />

Salads and desserts are ahighlight of<br />

this season and addingbasilisagreat way<br />

to add flavour to your meals. Awapuni<br />

nurseries stock eight varieties of basil:<br />

lemon, bush,Thai, sweet, red Rubin,<br />

cinnamon,greek mini and mixed. We<br />

particularly recommendthe basil lemon<br />

for aburst of unique, citrusy flavour. It<br />

smells amazing, too.<br />

Blooming<br />

Everywhere in New Zealand, flower<br />

gardens are blooming. Fill up your<br />

gardens withfoxgloves, lavender,<br />

impatiens and poppies. If you wish to try<br />

something different, take alookatsome<br />

lupins or salvia. They'll add abit of colour<br />

and heighttoyour garden.<br />

Discussing waste minimisation<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Sending less wastetolandfill will<br />

take acommunity effort, says<br />

Hurunui District Councilwaste<br />

officer NicoleHurinui.<br />

Nicole is keen to connectwith the<br />

district’slocal business as astep<br />

towards achievingthis.<br />

‘‘We are keen to hear new ideas<br />

from businesses about whatthey’re<br />

doingtokeep contaminationand<br />

wastevolumesdown.<br />

‘‘It’s about starting a<br />

conversation. As acouncil we can<br />

provide advice, tips, and assist with<br />

wastereduction where needed,’’<br />

she says.<br />

When it comes to waste, Cheviot<br />

Four Squareowners,Steve and<br />

Ginny Allison, are atoughact to<br />

follow.<br />

Theteam recycles its dry<br />

cardboard, and food scrapsare<br />

collected by alocal accredited pig<br />

farmer. Their recycling is placed in<br />

banana boxes or clean cardboard<br />

cartons and takendirectlytothe<br />

transfer stationinCheviot.<br />

‘‘Steveand Iwant to make sure<br />

we are doing the best jobwecan for<br />

thecommunity and the<br />

environment,’’says Ginny.<br />

They firmly believe if you aren’t<br />

progressingasabusiness, you<br />

become stagnant andfall behind.<br />

Reducing wasteisnoexception.<br />

‘‘Ithink it is great what Nicole is<br />

doing. As businesses, we can always<br />

be improvinginthis area.With<br />

Nicole actingasago­between, we<br />

cantake on her feedbackand learn<br />

from each other.’’<br />

The council’s transfer stations<br />

offervarious options for recycling,<br />

and the staff have great<br />

relationships with locals who are<br />

looking to maximise waste<br />

reduction.<br />

Nicole is keen to continue these<br />

chatswith other local businesses.<br />

‘‘It’s areally positive way to<br />

engage with the business<br />

community, and createaflow­on<br />

aboutthe importance of waste<br />

Wakatu Quay parking discussed<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Parking and access at the Wakatu<br />

Quay development and Easter<br />

trading werediscussed at the<br />

KaikouraDistrict Council’smeeting<br />

last week.<br />

Aconcept plan for parking and<br />

access at Wakatu Quay was<br />

approved in principle by<br />

councillors, ‘‘knowing that<br />

everything might change’’,chief<br />

executive Will Doughty says.<br />

‘‘Theproject needs some<br />

certaintyinterms of apreferred<br />

option to move to any consenting<br />

stage.’’<br />

The approval gives theKaikoura<br />

Marine Development Project some<br />

certaintytomove forward.<br />

The concept plan lays out parking<br />

and accessoptions in two stages,to<br />

be implemented as the project<br />

develops.<br />

In stage one the council will<br />

createaone­way traffic system<br />

using the existing roads and<br />

parking.<br />

Forstage two the councilhas<br />

entered intodiscussions with a<br />

neighbouring landowneraround<br />

thepossibility of creating an<br />

alternative accessroute.<br />

Thecouncil’s preferred concept<br />

plan, adopted earlierthis year, is<br />

estimated to cost around$20<br />

million.<br />

Thecouncil received nearly $10<br />

million funding fromthe<br />

government’sProvincial Growth<br />

Fund, leaving it around $10 million<br />

short.<br />

Expressions of interest closed on<br />

Friday,with the council keen to<br />

hear from potential individual<br />

tenancies or from adeveloper<br />

interested in investing in the whole<br />

development.<br />

‘‘It reallydepends on the level of<br />

interest, whether it’s astaged<br />

development or whether everything<br />

can be built at once,’’MrDoughty<br />

says.<br />

‘‘What we have signalled earlyon,<br />

this is not going to be aburden on<br />

the ratepayers of Kaikoura. But as a<br />

council we can always revisit that.’’<br />

Councillors also agreed for the<br />

Easter Sunday ShopTradingPolicy<br />

to go out for public consultation as<br />

part of the council’s five­yearly<br />

review.<br />

The policywas first adopted in<br />

2017,following the passing of the<br />

Shop Trading Hours Amendment<br />

Act 2016, allowing Kaikoura<br />

retailerstotrade on Easter Sunday.<br />

The publichas until January 10 to<br />

offerfeedback.<br />

Designer Canvas for all your outdoor fabrics<br />

Designer Canvas has been operating for<br />

more than 30 years designing,<br />

manufacturing, repairing and installing<br />

outdoor fabric products for satisfied<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> clients.<br />

Owner Peter Edwards says ‘‘we really<br />

do anything and everything out of many<br />

types of fabrics’’.<br />

‘‘Basically we’ll do whatever our<br />

customers want, it’s up to their<br />

imaginations.<br />

‘‘Which means we’ve done some<br />

‘weird stuff’ over the years,’’ he says.<br />

Peter specialises in the design,<br />

manufacture and installation of shade<br />

sails, but also makes caravan awnings,<br />

boat covers, transport covers and many<br />

other canvas and PVC products.<br />

‘‘I enjoy designing and making shade<br />

sails because of their versatility and<br />

effectiveness, providing much needed<br />

usable outdoor living space, especially<br />

during those hot summer months.<br />

‘‘Many customers comment that, ‘It’s<br />

like adding another room to the house<br />

but still getting to enjoy the outdoors’.<br />

‘‘Much better than chasing the<br />

umbrella down the street when those<br />

nor’westers roar through.’’<br />

Many are being used as carports or<br />

even boat storage out of the sun.<br />

Over the years Peter says he has<br />

probably made more than 1000 sails,<br />

many still going strong after 15­plus<br />

Over the years Peter has made<br />

insulated tents for Antarctica, extreme<br />

temperature flexible doors for blast<br />

furnaces and lined sea rescue<br />

helicopters for the Air Force.<br />

‘‘I even got tasked with making a<br />

wedding dress,’’ he says.<br />

Peter took over Designer Canvas in<br />

2016 after working there for 15 years.<br />

Originally from Auckland, Peter has<br />

more than 35 years experience in the<br />

HDC NEWS...<br />

What's happening Hurunui?<br />

AMBERLEY WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT DESLUDGING<br />

IS NOW COMPLETE<br />

An estimated 620 tonnes of dry sludge has been removed from the wastewater ponds through adesludging<br />

process, an accumulation of 10-12 years ofwastewater into the ponds from Amberley Beach, Amberley,<br />

Leithfield Beach and Leithfield Village. Lagoon dredging is by far the most common form of lagoon (pond)<br />

sludge removal, where the dredger floats onthe lagoon and sucks upthe organic and non-organic material<br />

(the sludge) from the base of the lagoon where it has settled. The sludge isthen pumped into five ‘Geo-<br />

Bags’ where apolymer is added to assist in the drying process. Once the sludge has dried out, it's ready for<br />

re-use which can be added to alandfill, applied to agricultural cropland as fertiliser, orbagged with other<br />

materials and marketed as “biosolid compost” for use in agriculture and landscaping. The drying out process<br />

takes about two to three years, during which time the wastewater weeps from these bags, is collected, and<br />

pumped back through the ponds for irrigation use in the future.<br />

THE ROAD RESEALING SEASON<br />

Summer means the start ofresealing season. At locations around the District the roading maintenance<br />

contractor will be putting down anew layer of chipseal. Before this resealing takes place, they will be fixing<br />

existing faults along the road surface and edges, including drain and shoulder clearing to help prolong the<br />

life ofthe road, will be happening.<br />

We would ask that you take it slow….. While the chipseal is fresh and there may be some surplus chip on<br />

the road, please follow any temporary speed limits, which will help protect the seal, other road users, and<br />

yourself.<br />

TOOT FOR TUCKER<br />

On Tuesday 7<strong>December</strong> community volunteers including the Amberley Volunteer Fire Brigade, the<br />

Amberley and Glenmark Lions, and staff members from HDC will betooting for your tucker. The team will<br />

7pm. Feel free to donate some of your cans or non-perishables, all of which will be given to our Foodbanks.<br />

You can also drop your cans intothe Toot for Tucker box at the Amberley Library.<br />

Local hero ... Richard Craig’s long service to the Kaikoura community has been<br />

recognised.<br />

Kaikoura local hero named<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Along serving Kaikoura volunteer has been<br />

namedaKiwibank Local Hero.<br />

Richard Craig has been volunteering for<br />

Coastguard Kaikoura for34years, is a<br />

KaikouraMarineGuardian andhas also<br />

been activeinthe Kaikoura Salmon<br />

EnhancementSociety and Te KorowaiTe<br />

Tai oMarokura.<br />

He was also recently named Coastguard<br />

volunteer of the yearand Coastguard<br />

rescue vesselvolunteer of the year at the<br />

2<strong>02</strong>1 CoastguardAwards of Excellence.<br />

‘‘I’mnot one for awards,’’MrCraig says.<br />

‘‘Everything I’m in, I’m partofateam and<br />

I’ve beenluckyenough to have some<br />

leading roles.<br />

‘‘Butit’s nice to be recognised.’’<br />

Mr Craig was Coastguard Kaikoura<br />

presidentfor 16 years andremains the<br />

organisation’s health and safetyofficer.<br />

He played an integral role in raising<br />

$700,000in2006 to buy anew rescue vessel,<br />

whichheskippers.<br />

‘‘We carry­out rescues around Kaikoura<br />

and sometimesdown to Motunau and up to<br />

Cape Campbell.<br />

‘‘It’s prettyruggedcoastline,but we have<br />

averygood rescueboat.<br />

‘‘We don’t get alot of callouts, but they<br />

can be very serious.<br />

‘‘We are very happy to provide aservice<br />

for people whoget intodifficulties.’’<br />

Mr Craig ran acarpet and vinyl floor<br />

laying business in Kaikoura before retiring<br />

four years ago.<br />

He admitsithas been achallenging few<br />

yearsfor Coastguard Kaikoura.<br />

‘‘Covid has been strange times for<br />

everybodyand before that it was the<br />

earthquakes, so it has been prettybusy.’’<br />

The rescuecrews were involved in<br />

evacuating tourists from Kaikoura<br />

following the November 2016 earthquake.<br />

The Coastguard building was<br />

refurbished, while dredging was required<br />

to launchthe rescue boardafterthe<br />

coastline was raisedbythe earthquake.<br />

‘‘Fortunatelywedidn’t have too many<br />

boatsaroundatthe time,’’ Mr Craig says.<br />

But the worknever ends, as fundraising<br />

will begin soon to replacethe rescue boat,<br />

whichwill turn 20­years in 2<strong>02</strong>6.<br />

His knowledgeofthe marine<br />

environmentand the fisheries in the area<br />

saw him appointedasaMarineGuardian<br />

when the Hikurangi Marine Reservewas<br />

created by government legislation in 2014.<br />

Te Korowai Te Tai oMarokura was<br />

established nearly 20 years ago to advise<br />

the Ministries of Fisheries and<br />

Conservation andtohelp ensurethe<br />

fisheries and marine mammalsare<br />

preservedfor future generations,MrCraig<br />

says.<br />

Paua fisheries reopened<br />

Paua fishing along the Kaikoura coastline<br />

has reopenedfor the first time in five years.<br />

The November2016 earthquake caused<br />

extensive changes to the marine habitat<br />

alongthe Kaikoura coastline between<br />

Marfells Beach /Cape Campbell and<br />

Conway River, including significant coastal<br />

uplift.<br />

The loss of awide range of marine<br />

species led to the area being closed to<br />

commercialand recreational fishing of<br />

most shellfish and seaweed, including paua<br />

andkina,for five years.<br />

The Kaikoura MarineGuardianshave<br />

been monitoring the fisheriesclosely and<br />

madeasubmission to the Minister for<br />

Oceans and Fisheries in February to<br />

reopen the Kaikoura marinearea.<br />

As aprecautionthe fishery will reopen<br />

for athree month to February 28.<br />

Asurveyhas been conducted prior to the<br />

fishery reopening on <strong>December</strong> 1, while a<br />

follow­up survey will be carried out at the<br />

end of the three­month period to assess the<br />

effects of fishing.<br />

An independentsurvey of recreational<br />

fishingalong the coastline will also collect<br />

information on catch levels and fishing<br />

locations.<br />

Commercial and recreational fishing<br />

along the Kaikoura coastline is allowed for<br />

common or black foot paua fishing until<br />

February 28.<br />

The less common and smaller yellow foot<br />

paua remainsoff limits.<br />

There is adaily limit of five paua per<br />

person,upto amaximum of 10 paua for<br />

recreational fishingwith aminimum legalsize<br />

limit of 125mm shellfish length.<br />

Commercial fishing for paua will open<br />

for the same three­month period and will<br />

be managedwith anew totalallowable<br />

commercial catch of 23 tonnes,around 50<br />

percentofthe pre­earthquake catch level.<br />

Commercial and recreational kina<br />

fishing is also open with alimit of 20 kina<br />

per day.<br />

The Oaro­Haumuri Taiapureisalso open<br />

to paua and kina fishing,but four other<br />

customary management areas along the<br />

Kaikoura coast remain closedto<br />

commercial and recreational paua fishing.<br />

Youth service recognised<br />

The Waimakariri District has recognised<br />

two youth leaders with aspecial lunch on<br />

Friday.<br />

With the annual YouthVoice<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> awards evening cancelled<br />

due to Covid­19, Mayor Dan Gordon and<br />

chief executive Jim Harland shouted<br />

lunch for Waimakariri’s two award<br />

winners, Ruby Wilson and Chloe Betony.<br />

‘‘We are incredibly proud of these<br />

outstanding young people and their drive<br />

and commitment to play apart in<br />

creating apositive tomorrow for our<br />

district and region,’’ Mr Gordon says.<br />

‘‘It’s apleasure to work with Ruby and<br />

Chloe on the Youth Council.’’<br />

Ruby, who is the Waimakariri Youth<br />

Council deputy chairperson, won the<br />

Matt Doocey MP supreme award for<br />

Waimakariri and was runner­up for the<br />

‘change­maker award’.<br />

‘‘Ruby has done an incredible amount<br />

in our community, not only in her Youth<br />

Council and WaiYouth roles, but also<br />

volunteering through her church, school<br />

and wider community including regional<br />

youth networks,’’ Mr Gordon says.<br />

Fellow youth councillor, Chloe was<br />

runner­up for the environmental action<br />

award.<br />

‘‘Chloe has been instrumental in<br />

developing our youth­led environmental<br />

projects,’’ Mr Gordon says.<br />

‘‘This includes local river clean ups<br />

and the Biota Node project, in<br />

partnership with Te Kohaka oTuhaitara<br />

Trust.’’<br />

The annual youth awards is an<br />

opportunity to champion youth and<br />

celebrate the work young people do in<br />

the <strong>Canterbury</strong> region.<br />

Youth Voice <strong>Canterbury</strong> announced<br />

this year’s youth awards via its Facebook<br />

page last week.<br />

Young driver safety priority<br />

Taking adefensive driving<br />

course changed rural<br />

teenager Hillary Cooper’s<br />

confidence to test her<br />

skills on the open road.<br />

The Oxford Area School<br />

Year 11 student now wants<br />

to use her role as<br />

Waimakariri’s brand new<br />

Youth MP to help other<br />

young people in<br />

Waimakariri learn to drive<br />

safely on the electorate’s<br />

open roads.<br />

Waimakariri MP Matt<br />

Doocey says he received a<br />

high calibre of<br />

applications from young<br />

people wanting to be his<br />

next Youth MP.<br />

‘‘It was great to have the<br />

input of my previous<br />

Youth MP, Ellie Tizzard,<br />

and Waimakariri District<br />

Council Youth and<br />

Development Facilitator<br />

Emily Belton, as two of the<br />

judges on the selection<br />

panel to make the very<br />

hard choice of who would<br />

represent Waimakariri’s<br />

young people at Youth<br />

Parliament.’’<br />

Youth Parliament will<br />

be held on July 19 and 20,<br />

2<strong>02</strong>2.<br />

Hillary fronted the<br />

interview panel armed<br />

with an exciting project<br />

she was ready to drive<br />

from the get­go.<br />

She wanted to remove<br />

barriers for youth in<br />

Waimakariri to accessing<br />

driver training and<br />

learning to drive safely on<br />

our open roads, Mr Doocey<br />

says.<br />

Driving success ... Hillary Cooper will be working as<br />

Waimakariri MP Matt Doocey's new Youth MP to raise<br />

awareness of the importance of making driver training and<br />

defensive driving courses more accessible to young people.<br />

Living in arural<br />

community, Hillary knows<br />

how difficult it can be for<br />

our young people to access<br />

driver training, especially<br />

defensive driving skills.<br />

‘‘She convinced me how<br />

important it is for<br />

community safety that our<br />

young drivers have the<br />

skills they need to drive<br />

defensively and safely,’’Mr<br />

Doocey says.<br />

Hillary says young<br />

people in Waimakariri<br />

struggle to get where they<br />

need to be with parents<br />

working and driver licence<br />

fees and accessibility to<br />

lessons often out of reach.<br />

‘‘Growing up on adairy<br />

PHOTO: SUPPLIED<br />

farm, Iknow those barriers<br />

are very real and Iwant to<br />

see driver training<br />

programmes implemented<br />

in our schools.<br />

‘‘This is an issue Iwant<br />

to take to Wellington to<br />

raise in Youth Parliament.<br />

Defensive driving courses<br />

are offered at acost that is<br />

prohibitive to young<br />

people, yet they have been<br />

proved to increase<br />

community safety. Having<br />

more courses and mentors<br />

will save lives.’’<br />

Hillary will be reaching<br />

out to young people across<br />

Waimakariri to get their<br />

feedback ahead of Youth<br />

Parliament next year.<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong>, we need<br />

to talk about our<br />

changing climate.<br />

Climate change is alreadyaffecting our<br />

localcommunitiesand ecosystems.Itis<br />

not an easy or small topic. That’s whyour<br />

localand regional councilshavepooled<br />

resources,knowledge and expertise to<br />

helppeopleunderstand, preparefor and<br />

adapt to changesthat<strong>Canterbury</strong>islikely<br />

to experience.<br />

and pickupsomeideasabout howyou<br />

canhelp minimise,and adapt to,the<br />

impacts of climatechange.<br />

Whatisclimate change?<br />

Over many years,scientists and tohunga<br />

have learntalot aboutEarth’s climate<br />

system. We know that recent changes<br />

in the climate arewidespread,rapid,<br />

and intensifying,and unprecedented<br />

in thousandsofyears.<br />

As Earth’s temperature<br />

continuestorise,itcauses<br />

changesinrainfall, weather<br />

patterns, and the frequency<br />

of extreme events, as well<br />

as ice meltand sea level<br />

rise.This results in arange<br />

of effects we experience in<br />

our naturalenvironment<br />

and the areas we livein.<br />

Climate changein<strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

If we carry onasusual, and greenhouse<br />

gas emissions continue to increase,<br />

average temperatures in <strong>Canterbury</strong> are<br />

projectedtoincrease by up to 3.5°C by<br />

the end of the century. The likelihood<br />

of drought conditions is also projected<br />

to increase, and firerisk will increase as<br />

soilsand plants become drier.<br />

Alongside drought, we can expect<br />

wetter winters in many eastern, western<br />

and southern parts of <strong>Canterbury</strong>,<br />

with up to 40% more rain.<br />

What’sbeingdone?<br />

The morewelearn about the challenges<br />

associatedwith climate change in<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong>, the morewecan use our<br />

knowledge to makewise decisions.<br />

Councils arethinking differently about<br />

biodiversity,water availability,flood<br />

protection, coastal erosion, energy,<br />

land, urban design, infrastructure<br />

and industry soyou, your whānau, your<br />

community or your business can be<br />

proactively respond. Mō tātou, ā, mō<br />

kā uri, āmuri akenei –for us,and our<br />

If we work together to reduce emissions,<br />

we can collectively limit the amount of<br />

Can Ireally makeadifference?<br />

Absolutely! The easiest thing youcan<br />

Our priority is safety and<br />

customer satisfaction<br />

Province Wide Helicopters (PWH) was<br />

formed in 2009 by commercial helicopter<br />

pilot Flint Horn and his wife Jenny,<br />

Flint who has accumulated 12,500 flight<br />

hours over a 33 year flying career, wanted<br />

to give back to the industry he loves.<br />

Throughout Flint’s career his number<br />

one priority has been Safety and<br />

Customer Satisfaction.<br />

PWH initially provided the flight training<br />

to young pilots wanting to master the<br />

techniques of helicopter flying.<br />

This was mostly done from autumn<br />

through to early summer.<br />

During the summer months Flint flew<br />

helicopters as acontract pilot fire fighting<br />

for the New South Wales fire service in<br />

Australia.<br />

Australia is only one of the off shore<br />

country’s that he has flown in.<br />

For anumber of years he flew in British<br />

Columbia Canada working for logging<br />

companies.<br />

He also flew in the north west territories<br />

of Canada under taking live capture of<br />

wildlife for research. However, one of<br />

Flint’s greatest challenges was moving to<br />

Norman Wells, asmall settlement of 300<br />

people on the arctic circle.<br />

He was flying for Great Slave<br />

Helicopters where he held the position of<br />

Base Manager.<br />

He was sole charge and day light<br />

hours were a mere three hours, and<br />

temperatures plummeted to -40 degrees<br />

Celsius in the winter.<br />

Conditions were extreme which posed<br />

many challenges for both man and<br />

machine while serving the company’s allyear<br />

round clients.<br />

During the summer months there<br />

was 24-hour daily light and Flint’s role<br />

expanded to managing 13 helicopters<br />

and associated crew, serving oil and<br />

mining companys, fire fighting for the<br />

forest service, wildlife management,<br />

water surveying and servicing the small<br />

communities in the arctic.<br />

During Flint’s career he has been<br />

involved in working for medivac and<br />

search rescue operators both in<br />

New Zealand and overseas, which<br />

included flying the Westpac and Nelson<br />

Marlborough Rescue Helicopters.<br />

He also carried out powerline surveying<br />

and construction in Australia and<br />

Canada.<br />

Flint’s philosophy is simple: Do things in<br />

a timely and professional manner.<br />

This is evident in how Flint and Jenny<br />

operate PWH.<br />

Students are trained to well above<br />

industry standards. From day one<br />

a student pilot is exposed to the<br />

environment that a commercial helicopter<br />

pilot flies in.<br />

Being located at Springbank, near<br />

Rangiora, Flint has access to agreat<br />

training environment with local farming<br />

property to train on, once airborne, and<br />

surrounding mountains within minutes of<br />

the helicopter base, saving the student<br />

valuable time and money on ferrying<br />

costs while training.<br />

PWH operate two Robinson R22<br />

helicopters and one Robinson R44, and<br />

offers training from novice through to full<br />

commercial pilot licencing.<br />

Exam tutoring is given on request as<br />

well as finance available for students<br />

who require it.<br />

Due to the extensive experience that<br />

Flint has obtained flying many types of<br />

helicopters, PWH offers students ratings<br />

on the most common types of helicopters<br />

available.<br />

PWH specialises in advanced mountain<br />

flying courses and longline training<br />

therefore giving the student pilot the most<br />

compressive real life training available.<br />

Flint believes that training pilots in the<br />

environment that they will eventually fly<br />

in has helped many of the pilots he has<br />

trained achieve jobs in both Canada and<br />

Australia.<br />

Flint is proud that anumber of off shore<br />

helicopter operators ring him for junior<br />

pilots that he has trained when positions<br />

become available.<br />

PWH now offers farmers and local<br />

government an aerial pest control service.<br />

With apurpose built helicopter<br />

transporter PWH can position their<br />

helicopters at minimal cost weather<br />

delays.<br />

Coupled with three experienced,<br />

professional shooters, athermal imager<br />

and map tracking equipment, PWH<br />

can deliver high pest control yields<br />

at competitive rates. Trail flights and<br />

Vouchers are also available.<br />

Fellow Amberley farmers Jenny and<br />

Wayne Chisnall sold both of their<br />

Southdown rams for $3000 and $1000<br />

respectively.<br />

The Laings run the small 100 ewe,<br />

Glasnevin Dorset Down stud, on a210<br />

son and daughter­in­law, Michael and<br />

Felicity Laing, and their grandchildren.<br />

Mrs Laing was proud of her top­priced<br />

While they are cutting back on the<br />

Dorset Downs, Mrs Laing is confident the<br />

family will be farming for years to come.<br />

‘‘Our 5­year­old grandson George is<br />

already keen on animals and he’s had a<br />

couple of pet lambs.<br />

‘‘He called his little pet lamb John<br />

Deere. It’s agood, wee pet and it follows<br />

him all over the place.’’<br />

The Chisnalls run the 120 ewe, Hursley<br />

Downs Southdown stud on an 80ha farm,<br />

alongside some beef cattle and a<br />

commercial flock of Romney ewes.<br />

The stud was established in 2007 for<br />

Mrs Chisnall, who tutors teachers for<br />

professional development.<br />

‘‘Wayne’s mum had asheep stud and<br />

she told him, ‘Jenny needs astud’.<br />

‘‘We work together ­he’s the brawn and<br />

I’m the passion,’’ Mrs Chisnall says.<br />

She was thrilled with the result, given<br />

other farmers struggled to make sales.<br />

‘‘We’re very happy with that,<br />

considering the sale. There was not alot<br />

of commercial buyers to under pin the<br />

sale.’’<br />

The day’s top price was $16,500 paid for<br />

aSuffolk ram from Collie Hills stud from<br />

Kurow in <strong>North</strong> Otago.<br />

Another Suffolk ram, vendored by<br />

Anton Gibson of Middlemarch sold for<br />

$9000, while $6000 was paid for aDorset<br />

Down ram bred by John Dodds of<br />

Oamaru.<br />

Sad end to equine love story<br />

Soulmates ... Amanda Scott Richards, with her daughter<br />

Poppy, aged 7, and their special family friend, English­bred<br />

thoroughbred, Rawaah who died recently after afreak<br />

paddock accident.<br />

PHOTO: SHELLEY TOPP<br />

An equinelove story, lasting<br />

more than17years, has<br />

come to asad end after a<br />

freakpaddock accident.<br />

The accidenthappened<br />

last month while Amanda<br />

Scott­Richards,ofWest<br />

Eyreton, was not at home.<br />

It is amysteryhow her<br />

beloved English­bred<br />

thoroughbred, Rawaah,<br />

brokehis neck, meaning he<br />

had to be put down.<br />

‘‘He has enriched our<br />

livesinsomany ways. It was<br />

utterly devastating to lose<br />

him, especially that way,’’<br />

she said.<br />

When Amanda and her<br />

husband JeremyRichards<br />

emigrated to New Zealand<br />

from England in 2008they<br />

paid £20,000tobring<br />

Rawaah withthem.<br />

It was ahuge cost thenfor<br />

the young couple, who had<br />

ownedanequestrianand<br />

horsetrekking centre in<br />

West Sussex before coming<br />

to New Zealand. But<br />

Rawaah was ‘‘an incredibly<br />

special horse’’ and leaving<br />

him behind was<br />

unthinkable.<br />

Amanda bought Rawaah<br />

for $1000 after the former<br />

high­pricedyearling had<br />

failed to excel on the<br />

racetrackinthe United<br />

Kingdom.<br />

‘‘When Ifirst got Rawaah<br />

he was verymuch an<br />

institutionalised racehorse.<br />

He was stabled 24 hoursa­day<br />

exceptfor time out<br />

training on the gallops when<br />

they go out with astring of<br />

100 other horses.<br />

‘‘He had never jumped,<br />

done dressage, he had never<br />

run around apaddock, seen<br />

sheep for example and he<br />

had never beenfloated,’’<br />

Amandasaid. ‘‘He just<br />

didn’thave the desire to<br />

race, unlike his sire<br />

Nashwan who won the<br />

Derby.’’<br />

But after two yearsin<br />

Amanda's care Rawaah<br />

gainedanew leaseonlife<br />

and was competing in<br />

dressage, showjumping and<br />

leading outtreks with her.<br />

He also helped Amanda run<br />

therapy sessions for MIND,<br />

amental health charity in<br />

the UnitedKingdom.<br />

‘‘I had to acquire alot of<br />

newskills to retrain<br />

Rawaah,’’Amanda said. ‘‘I<br />

studiednatural<br />

horsemanship with Kelly<br />

Marks, who workedwith<br />

horse whispererand bestselling<br />

authorofThe Man<br />

WhoListensToHorses,<br />

Monty Roberts.<br />

‘‘Ilearnt so much from<br />

workingwith Ra. He has<br />

been an amazingteacher,’’<br />

she said. ‘‘I feel very<br />

fortunate to have had such a<br />

special horse in my life.’’<br />
