Walking the talk at Northbrook
By DAVID HILL
Local Democracy Reporter
Waimakariri residents are being
encouraged to walk and tell stories.
Anew story walk was launched at
Northbrook Reserve in Rangiora on
Friday, June 24, and Waimakariri
district libraries staff hope it will be the
first of many.
The idea came out of the Covid19
lockdown as librarystaff explored new
ways of connectingwith people,
Waimakariri District Libraries
community connections coordinator
Anna Paterson says.
Story walks have beencreatedin
other parts of New Zealand,including
the Gore, Hastings, and Napier
‘‘We thought with Covid and people
getting out and going for walks and
enjoying their local parks,this was a
good way of connecting withpeople.
‘‘We want people to havealovefor
books and readingand this is away of
doing that when the libraryisclosed.
And not everybody wants to do it
Library staff joined forces with
greenspace stafftocreate temporary
storyboards which have been
strategically placed around the reserve
Each storyboardislike adifferent
page, tellingastory and linking to the
local environment,MsPaterson says.
The story The Little Kiwi’sMatariki by
Nikki Slade Robinson was chosen for
the first story walk to tie in with
Matariki, with permission obtained
from the author.
Peoplecan alsolearnabout the
birdlife and plantswhich are found in
the NorthbrookReserveand about the
history of site on the storyboards.
The temporary story walk has been
set up for atwo month trial and if it is
successful library staff hope to be able
to roll out permanent story walks at
different parks aroundthe district.
‘‘It would be lovely to see this in every
park in the Waimakariri,’’ Ms Paterson
Story walk ... Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon (left), Puke the Pukeko and Waimakariri

opening of anew story walk at Northbrook Reserve in Rangiora on Friday.

‘‘If the boards are still in an OK
condition at the end of the trial we may
be able to take them to Kaiapoi and
share them alittle bit more.
‘‘Temporary boardsare avery
affordable optionatthis point, but more
permanent boards would require some
fundingfrom the council.’’
Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon says
he would support expanding the
initiativeand looksforward to a
fundingproposal coming fromcouncil
‘‘I think it’s agreat initiativefrom our
greenspaceand our libraries teams and
with the timing of Matariki,it’s alovely
integration. It’s great for the kids to
learn as they walkaround the reserve
and I’m learning too.’’
chairperson Jim Gerard joined Mr
Gordon on awalk around the new story
walk on Friday and says the board is
‘‘allbehind the beautification of open
spaces’’ in Rangiora. The cost of
creating, installing and later removal of
the storyboards is around $1500 and is
covered by existing greenspace and

What makesAmberley Country EstateSoSpecial?
The Layout of Amberley Country Estate is
Very Different toMost Other Villages.
Instead oflines of similar homes inarow, we have awide range
of villas, witheachstreetset outinauniquely distinctive layout.
Shared right ofways gives amore intimate feel, like living ina
cul-de-sac. But, with rural-people inmind, some homes have
private driveways andextragenerously sizedyards.
As well as meaning the Village doesn’t feel like all the homes
are the same, each yard isunique too. Streets are beautifully
landscaped with attractive colourful plantings. Paths meander
through the village and pocket-parks abound.
This extra “visual amenity” gives your home more individuality
and the streets more character, making the village feel more
special and upmarket.
So areour Amazing EnergyEfficient Villas!
Available from 94-182m 2, our stunning Architect-designed, 2and 3Bedroom Villas combine the highest
standards ofstyle, comfort, security and energy efficiency: thermally broken foundations, thicker walls with
more insulation and thermally-broken windows keep the cold outside and ducted central heating means
power bills are low and you’re warm and comfortable year round. Less power useisbetter for the planet too!
Plus there’s SO much more!

should be your next move,visit our website or call 0800 573 573

Work is continuing in and around Otaki Street as
part of the Shovel Ready Kaiapoi Stormwater and
Flooding Improvements project, which should be
completed by the end of August.
There are teams working in Hodgson Avenue, Otaki
Street, Chapman Place and Wesley Street at the
moment with all hands on deck to complete the
works as soon aspossible.
The work involves connecting an underground
pumping station in Otaki Street with two branches
of large gravity pipes stretching east over to
Ashley Place and west to Wesley Street. Along
Otaki Street alarge pressure main is being
installed toget the water tothe river in large
Tominimise disruption, we’re taking the
opportunity to replace the Chapman Place
wastewater rising main, and some water mains
as well as kerb and channel on Otaki Street and
Tocomplete this stage we will be closing the
Fuller/Otaki Street intersection to traffic while one
of the pipelines is installed. The intersection will be
closed for around 4weeks and there will be traffic
management and detours in place.
There will be achange to some bus stop locations
in the area too, with temporary bus stops in place
as the buses use the detour routes.
• Eastbound traffic will detour via Wesley Street,
Epworth Street, Whitefield Street, Ohoka Road,
Akaroa Street toFuller Street
• Westbound traffic will detour via Akaroa Street,
Broom Street, Otaki Street, Cressy Avenue,
Wesley Street to Fuller Street
Amap of detour routes is available at
We appreciate there will be some disruption while
the works are under construction. We’re grateful for
the patience of the residents who will be happy to
see this project complete in the next few months.
This is amajor upgrade to the Kaiapoi Stormwater
System which will increase the resilience of the
stormwater network across Kaiapoi and reduce the
likelihood of flooding in big storm events.

the biggest impact onthe outcome ofacrash,
which is why Police focus on speed enforcement.
I’d like to take this opportunity to remind people to
drive within the speed limit, and to the conditions
of the road. If it’s wet or icy, slow down. It’s always
better to take your time and arrive alive,” says
Police Sergeant Colin Stewart.

Bright career ahead
By TATIANA GIBBS
Racing a200cc openwheel vehicle,
while reaching speeds of 110km/h, is not
how most 12yearolds spend their
But for Swannanoa School pupil,Jack
Brownlees, apenchant for speed, and
South Islandcompetition success, has
won him aspot racing in Brisbane next
year with Bateman Motorsport
He is aimingtocompete in at least
five Australian meetings, but for now he
is patiently waiting for next season’s
race calendar to be released.
The young RuapunaSpeedwaytalent
scored plenty of silverware at the
recent annual awards night, claiming
three majorawards—the Canterbury
Championship, Top SeasonPoints, and
Most Consistent Driver for the youth
Jack has also won multipleSouth
Island titles,takingout Nelson's Easter
Champs, Greymouth’sBest of the West,
the South Island Circle Track Racing
Association (CADRE) title, and all five
rounds of the South IslandQuarter
Midget Car Series.
Ruapuna Speedway president Rob
Roxburghsays Jackisone of the best
quarter midgetdriversinthe country,
with abright future in racing aheadof
‘‘He's got very good equipment,and
he certainly knows how to drive,’’ he
Jack also races go karts, grasskarts
and offroaders,and in spiteofbeing
four years awayfrom gettinghis drivers
licence, he’sregularly on the podium
while racing quarter midgets, ayouth
openwheel class suited for 815yearolds
with a200cc engine limit.
Jack is especially good for his age,
and cleaning everyone else up, Rob
Jack was only 11 for the majority of
the racingseason, beating teenagers
older than him, beforeturning 12 in
The new challengewill see him
switch his 200cc quartermidget,for a
500ccmicrosprintthat features atop
and front wing —afaster youth class
that is not available in New Zealand.
‘‘It’s going to be apretty cool
experience,’’Jack says. ‘‘I want to travel
the world in (racing) and makethe most
His father, Jacob Brownlees, says
Jack is addicted to speedway,and
instead of cominghome from schoolto
play videogames,hewatches YouTube
videos of his favourite driversMichael
Pickens and Jack Lowe—successful
racers thatstartedout in quarter
midgets like Jack.
‘‘If he was middle of the pack and only
turning up because Itold him to, we
wouldn’tdoit,’’ Jacob says.
Jack’s mum KerryBrownlees says no
matter whatride he jumps into, he
‘‘A lot has to do withthe car, but 80%
of it is the driver,’’she says.
‘‘That’s whatsome people don’tget,’’
Jack says. ‘‘I’ll go home (fromspeedway)
and straight away ask for videosofthe
days racingsoIcan look at what I
mucked up on, so Idon’t do it againat
the nextrace meeting.’’
Jack’s proudest memory was being
season, atitle he achieved with a
broken thumb,after breaking it playing
basketball at school.
He didn’t want acast on it, which
wouldput the brakes on racing.
Instead asteel plate was put over his
thumbtohold it steady,and wrapped,
so he could pull on his racing gloves.
Jack lost the firsttwo races, and was
very nervous before the feature race.
‘‘Dadsaid it’s either awin it or bin it,
so Iwent out thereand won it, and I
don’tknow how Idid it.’’
‘‘In my mind all Iwas thinking was
whiteflag pleasecome out, which
signals to drivers they’re on their last
Jack takes after his dad who started
racing whenhewas 15. Jacobsays Jack
has won more awards in two yearsthan
he did in his 20 year racing career.
