Awoolly tale of increasing returns

By JOHN COSGROVE

It wasanidea borne of desperation.

Culverdensheepand beef farmers

Janeand Mark Schwasswere in the

sameboat as sheepfarmersnationwide,

desperatefor away to increase

their returns on wool whenthe price

per kilogram wassolow.

“It was costing us $5.50 per ewe to get

themshorn andwecouldonly get $1.50

per kilo back on the fleece,” says Mark

Schwass.

“We were practically giving it away

and then oneday,mydaughter

mentioned therewere peopleout there

selling merinoyogamatsfor $300each.

“Shefelt we coulddoitbetter and

sellitfor alot less.”

Thatstarted the ballrolling in the

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

districts.

‘‘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

online.’’

Library staff joined forces with

greenspace stafftocreate temporary

storyboards which have been

strategically placed around the reserve

walkway.

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

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

says.

‘‘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

staff.

‘‘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.’’

Rangiora­AshleyCommunity Board

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

library

budgets.

The first public holiday to celebrate

Matariki, whichsignals the startofthe

Earlier in the day another large

crowd, of more than1500 people,

Hurunui showcased

to many in June

The month of June has showcased many

of the wonderful things that often go

under the radar.

The Cheviot Licensing Trust hosted

the annual conference for all trustee’s

from across New Zealand recently.

It was wonderful to play avery small

part in this, with my invitation to speak

to the delegates at the opening address.

Cheviot showcased the district with a

visit to Colin and Lynne Harrison’s

beautiful garden, along with sampling a

range of locally produced treats.

Congratulations to Sue Harrison and

her team for co­ordinating and

executing agreat event.

Together Hurunui is anon­statutory

network of social services operating in

the Hurunui District and includes

community groups, schools, health

centers, NGO agencies, local and central

government.

Together Hurunui endeavours to

identify gaps in service provision, and

advocate for the right services to fill

these through regular network events

and communications.

Older Persons health was the focus at

the session held recently, with astrong

advocacy voice from Grey Power.

Another fabulous event hosted by

Together Hurunui was held in Culverden

with aBasketball tournament

culminating with the final

championship game and presentation of

awards.

The Filipino community are skilled at

the game and came together for the final,

with glorious food and aprize giving. It

was such awonderful opportunity to join

together and appreciate the diversity of

cultures within our district.

Matariki was celebrated with the first

time this year with the public holiday,

but at alocal level many schools and

preschools created their own

celebrations.

Iwas fortunate to attend the Amberley

Prep and Preschool celebration when

the tamariki performed to many parents

and grandparents. It was such alovely

gesture that all families received the

generous gift of vegetables to take home,

and produce a‘‘hearty soup for the

soul’’.

Iattended an event at Amberley

Primary School where again I

appreciated the performance of the

students showcasing Waiata, and craft,

along with adelicious hangi catering for

over 270 people.

Iamsoproud of all the events and the

amazing community folk who have

brought this all together.

From asporting perspective Iwatched

the Glenmark­Cheviot rugby team win

the Luisetti seeds Combined rugby

competition. It was afantastic spectacle

with two North Canterbury teams in the

final. It is wonderful to see so many

volunteers contributing to clubs across

the district.

And last but not least on Friday July 1,

Iwill be participating in the Big Splash

afundraising event to support the Stroke

Foundation and Rangiora St John.

Although Iamnot really excited to

jump into apool of ice water, Iam

delighted to support these wonderful

causes, and am thankful for generous

support through sponsorship.

Considering we are in the deepest of

winter, we have much to be grateful for

with awonderful place to work, live and

play.

Praise for rate rise

By DAVID HILL

Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon has

hailed the efforts of staff after the

Waimakariri District Councilconfirmed

‘‘oneofthe lowestratesrises in the

country’’.

Councillorsvoted to adopt the 2022/23

annual planatacouncil meeting on

Tuesday (June28), withanaverage rates

rise of 4.5 percent.

‘‘It’s been alargepiece of work

because of the current economic

situation,’’ Mr Gordon said.

He says the annual plan largely

follows on from last year’s 2021/31 Long

Term Plan (LTP), with some

adjustments to reflect the challenging

economic environment.

Economicindicators suggestthe

Waimakariri district is performing well,

despite the impacts of Covid­19 and

global economic uncertainty.

The prospect of nearly900 new houses

beingbuilt this year provides some

optimism going forward, Mr Gordon

said.

‘‘We wanted to ensure that we were

goingtobeable to deliver on everything

that we planned and to not endupwith

acaseofover promising and under

delivering.

‘‘I’mvery confident that we can

provide the very high level of service

that our rate payersexpect, while

ensuring that we are not overspending

at this crucialtime.’’

This year’s annual planfeatures

upgrades to drinking waterplants,

increasedfunding for the proposed

mixeduse community hub in Kaiapoi,

upgrades to the Rangiora Airfieldand

funding to protectsignificant natural

areas.

Capital works are notforgotten, with

increased funding allocatedtowardsthe

Kaiapoistorm water and flooding

improvements and upgradestoroading

infrastructure.

Deputy Mayor Neville Atkinson said

this year’s annualplan deliberations

had been ‘‘the most honest we’ve ever

been with ourselves with what we can

and can’tdeliver’’.

‘‘We have change fromgovernment

coming, we have the non­supplyof

materials and we have inflation.

‘‘Theearthquakes were adifficult

time,but it was prettyspecificto

Canterbury, but this (Covid­19) has

impactedonthe whole country.

‘‘We areinfor an incredibly rough two

years, so Ithink this annual planisa

greatachievement.’’

Cr Paul Williams raisedconcern that

the percentages of ratesfunding

allocated to roading appeared to be

lowerthan funding for the libraries,

parksand swimmingpools.

Mr Gordon said it was asubject which

needed further debate, but he noted the

feedback from residents indicatedthe

council was heading in theright

direction.

‘‘We getconstantfeedback at how

much people value our libraries and

pools, so I’m comfortablewith the rates

resolution.’’

Last year the council considered

climate change in the LTP for the first

time.MrGordonsays this year’s annual

plan is underpinned by aconscious

effort to enhance wellbeing, the

environmentand sustainability in a

growing district.

‘‘People told us theyare happy with

our advocacy around Three Waters and

our commitmenttobalancinggrowth

and optimism with economic

uncertainty.’’

Sudima opens in Oct

By DAVID HILL

CraigMacklehas welcomednews

Kaikoura’s SudimaHotel will officially

open in October.

The Kaikoura Mayor says the official

opening of the 120 room SudimaKaikoura

on October17could be the start of abusy

summer for the tourist town.

‘‘I can’t wait to be honest.We’vebeen

waiting for along time,’’MrMackle says.

‘‘It’s taken along timefor someoneto

bite the bullet andbuild ahotel and

hopefully someone else will follow suite.

‘‘We’ve got afew smaller places, but this

should bring in awhole different

clientele.’’

Sudima Kaikoura will be 4.5­starhotel

with 120 rooms and suites, bar, restaurant

and outdoor terrace making it ideal for

hosting conferences and corporateevents.

With the bordernow open to

international tourists andcruise ships

tentatively scheduledtoreturn to

Kaikoura, Mr Mackle is optimisticthe

summer of 2022/23could be the busiest yet.

The New Zealand Cruise Association

last month announced aproposed cruise

ship schedule,which included up to 15

visits to Kaikoura.

But the summer of 2019/20was set to

become the ‘‘busiest summeryet’’, with13

cruise visits scheduled to visit untilwet

weather and then Covid struck, Mr Mackle

says.

‘‘We are definitelylookingforward to a

busy summer. We just need to avoid

another wet summer.

‘‘Afterthe earthquakes and Covid,it’s

our time to have aturn in the sun.’’

Seedlings nurtured at home

Rangiora’s Charles Uphamvillage

residents have partnered with an

environmental charity to help

growand re­pot seedlings, for

planting in the earthquake red

zonesofChristchurch.

Glynis Whittaker and Yolande

Whitford,who liveinvillage

townhouses, weretwo of thefirst

to sign up with theCanterburybasedEco­Action

Nursery Trust,

whichisheaded by trust chairand

founder,DavidNewton.

The trust’s objectives areto

involvepeople of allages,

including thoseinretirement

villages,and alsothe younger set,

in projects,MrNewton says.

‘‘We arevery activeinthe

school’senvironment with many

school students helpingwith

planting days, so it is fantastic to

give the residents of Charles

Uphamthis opportunity.’’

Asatellite nurseryhas been set

up,and residents to date have

helpedtransplant 300ormore

seedlings in to individualpots.

Village Manager David

Cartwrightsays it is verymuch

about makingitanenjoyable

activity rather thanatask. Village

involvementcould increase in the

2023 plantingseason, he adds.

Glynis and Yolande saythey

have longbeen gardeners, and

shiftedplants, including

strawberries, as theymoved

houses,and eventuallybrought

some to Charles Upham.

TheEco­Actionprojecthad

proved positive giventhe

disruptions of Covid­19, Yolande

says.

‘‘We’ve bothfounditagood

eventhoughitwas cold,’’Yolande

says.

The pair love that the village has

plots forgardening, where they

can both raise theirown

vegetablesaswell as nurture

seedlings for the Eco­Action

project.

The early 2022 weather helped

the early manuka plantings.

‘‘Wehad aglorious April, the

weatherwas justbeautiful.

Yolandeand Idid alot to begin

with,’’ Glynissays.

Someofthe species of native

trees and grasses, includecarex

secta, kahikatea, totara,toitoi and

flax. Thehabitat willprovide food

and nectarfor bellbird and tui.

David Newton, whoteaches at

Christs College,says he wouldlike

to transferthe satellitenursery

projectintoothervillagesand

locations,and build theseedling

numbersoveramulti­year

timeframe.

‘‘The moreplants that go into

the red zonethe better. There is

600­660hectares and 10,000 plants

per hectare. The benefitsofnative

speciesisthatonce they are

planted,theywill lead to an

increase in bird song, soil

David saysatotal of 12,000

seedlings wereplanted in 2021,

withplans for 30,000 in 2022and

60,000 in 2023. The trust is working

The focus of the programme is on the

Love Your Hearing, North Canterbury

Alifetime of creating artworks

By ROBYN BRISTOW

ShonaRobertsonloves creating.

At age 86, the gifted Amberley­based

artist continuestostrive for excellence,

although she does not do quiteasmuch

painting as in the past.

She enjoys the camaraderie of Amberley

Art Groupmembers,and passes on her

wisdom and knowledge to others, as many

over the years have shared theirwisdom

and knowledge withher.

Shonahas 12 of her works on display at

the Back Wall Gallery in Amberley’s

Hurunui Library —avariety of buildings,

scenes, and landscapes.

She enjoys capturing old and historic

buildings, ensuring their survival on

canvas, several of which are in the

exhibition.

She has had aconstant companion along

the way —abook she treasures called The

Artists Way,byJulie Cameron, whichhas

offered her encouragement to continueto

strive and meet challenges in her works.

Shonahas lent it to others, and today

also sharesher own wisdom with other

artists to help them grow and develop.

Some of her paintings are in the United

Kingdom,Australia, South Africa and the

United States.

One, of Dean’s Cottage in Riccarton, was

spottedbythe great, great, great, great

grandson of Jane Deans, who boughtit.

Some timelaterShonawas informed the

painting had been senttoAustralia as a

wedding present.

Todayshe enjoys the challenge of

differentmediums, but her favourites

remain pencil and water colours.

Shonaalso continues to enjoy learning

‘‘A real challengeisawhitehorse.There

is more colourinawhite horse than you

think,’’ Shonasays. Acrylic paint helped

her capture the colour of the white horse,

with water colour overthe top.

‘‘It worked well,’’ Shonasays.

Her interest in painting began in her

early years at the OhokaSchool, but it was

not until1982 she tookupart as a‘‘hobby

or past time’’.

‘‘Withthe children grown up and leaving

home therewas time to indulge in what

has been avaried andinteresting time,’’

she says.

Shona began at the AmberleyArt Group

in 1982. Shortly aftershe joined the

Rangiora Art Group/Society, and later the

Town and Country, of whichshe is now a

life member.She spent two years withthe

Artist’s collectiveinChristchurch. Shona

loves nothing better than capturing

moments whendriving past, and from

memory, goes homeand paints it.

She also enjoys thegreat outdoors while

creating master pieces, althoughsome she

Upgrade

continues

Work is continuing on Kaiapoi’s

‘‘shovelready’’ stormwater and

floodingproject.

Residents will have noticed workin

and aroundOtaki Street, whichshould

be completed by the end of August.

Thereare teams working in

Hodgson Avenue, Otaki Street,

Chapman Place and Wesley Street,

with all hands on deck to complete the

worksassoon as possible.

The work involves connectingan

undergroundpumping station in Otaki

Street with two branches of large

gravity pipes stretching east over to

Ashley Place and westtoWesley

Street.

AlongOtakiStreet, alarge pressure

main is being installedtoget the water

to the riverinlarge rainfall events.

To minimise disruption, the council

is taking the opportunity to replace the

Chapman Place wastewaterrising

main,and some watermains as well as

kerb and channelonOtaki Street and

Chapman Place.

To completethis stage the Fuller /

OtakiStreets intersection will be

closed to traffic while one of the

pipelines is installed.

The intersection will be closed for

around fourweeks and there willbe

traffic management and detours in

place. There will be achange to some

bus stop locations in the area too, with

temporarybus stops in place as the

busesuse the detour routes.

The major upgrade to the Kaiapoi

Stormwater Systemwill increase the

resilience of the stormwater network.

Innovative approaches on farm

By GINA MCKENZIE

Innovative farming practices are helping

to make Roscoe Taggart’s farm more

sustainable.

Investing in precision agriculture has

provided the Cust farmer with

environmental,social and financial

benefits that help to continuously improve

his family’s 730­hectare arable and sheep

operation.

Mr Taggart is participating in asixmonthfarming

innovationproject,which

examineshowthenextgenerationof

farmers areusinginnovative approaches

to improve their farming practices.

The Waimakariri Landcare Trust and

Waimakariri IrrigationLimited(WIL)

have partneredwith theMinistryfor

Primary Industries (MPI) for the project,

withsupport from MPI’s Sustainable Food

and Fibre Futures fundalong with

Environment Canterbury, Ballance, and

DairyNZ.

At the start of the project Mr Taggart

applied variable rate nitrogen fertiliser

❛You do have to invest more

upfront with new technology,

but it is well worth it when you

This has proven to be agamechangerby

Having experienced the benefits of

being abletoapply variable rate nitrogen

‘‘Traditionally we havedoneastandard

The environmental and social benefits

of applying the right amount of fertiliser at

Ashley take Deans Shield home

RUGBY

By PETER WILLIAMS

Ohoka’s turninthe spotlight proved to be

shortlived as it succumbed at thefirst

defence of theDeans Shield to an

efficientAshley side 22­39 on Saturday.

Meanwhile,atCheviot, Glenmark­

Cheviot was also broughtdown to earth

after itsvictory in theCombined Grand

Finallastweekend,when Kaiapoiheld

outthe fastfinishingnortherners fora

narrow 27­24victory.

The top fourteamshave opened up a

gaponthe rest of theteams inthe Luisetti

Seedscompetition.

Kaiapoi (19) leads with Ashley,

Glenmark­Cheviot andSaracensareboth

on 15, well clearofthenext teams —

Hurunui and Ohoka on 7.

Next Saturdaymostinterest will be at

Cheviot whereGlenmark­Cheviot,

undoubtedly smarting from thisweek’s

defeat,will be seeking redemption

againstAshley.

It willbeasurprise if thechance to win

back their beloved Deans Shield doesn’t

Ohoka settledinto thegame morequickly

andwas rewarded forits early territorial

dominance withapenalty kicked by Scott

Ashley started to assert itsauthority.

WingerKorbyn Gray wasbusy,looking for

Whenever he gotthe ball in hand, which

wasquite often,hecould be reliedonto

break atleast one tackle, oftenmore.

The industrious lock, JimmyThiele was

thefirst toscore for Ashley. Then aJack

Ashleywas starting to getthe better of

theterritorial battle, but Ohoka’s Allin,

playing at first­five,showedthere was

muchmore to hiskicking gamethan just

hisgoal­kicking. Hehoisted some

prodigious punts which had the crowd

gaspingand frequently relievedthe

pressure thatwas starting to mount on the

holders.

Thenrightonthe cusp of half­time

ascendancyinthe third quarter.The

wholeAshley pack was rolling up its

sleeves, ledbythe Duckworth brothers at

prop andNo.8Elijah Coulston.

Duringthis period they putonthree

unansweredtries, all converted by Jack

Marshall.Thiseffectively spelt Ohoka’s

death knell. Skipper,LouisJames,scored

followingadominant drive from the

lineout. Before longBen Wicksteed and

Gray had alsogot onthe scoresheet.

Although Ohokakept tryinghard, and

George Wigginsnarrowed thegap with a

been done anditwas lefttoJosh

Glenmark­Cheviot v

Kaiapoi

Despite playingathomeonGlenmark’s

Club Dayand against theplaying­through

champions, this was always goingtobea

difficultassignment for Glenmark­

Cheviot after theexertions ofthree weeks

of gruelling finals rugby.

This was confirmed when apre­match

glance at theteam sheetrevealed that

backline lynchpins, MikeKeane and

JordyGray hadbeen named on thebench.

The decisiontogowithcomparatively

fresher legs seemed to havepaidoff when

Glenmark­Cheviot made aflying start to

thematch.

Nick Hyde, who has been scoring tries,

seemingly every Saturday,wasatitagain

when he dotted downafter alineout drive

andwingerEthan McDuff crossed on the

half hourtotakethe locals outtoatwelvepointlead.

But Kaiapoi is toogoodateam to be

shut outofthe gamecompletely.

It slowlystartedtoassert itselfand was

rewarded just before the break when

prop,Zac Andrews got thevisitors on the

board.

TaineJacobs­Lawson, who was starting

to directplayexpertly from thepivot

position, converted. This trywas the first

of 27 unansweredpoints scored by a

Kaiapoi teamthat wasgainingin

confidence.

With the experienced Matt Etheredge

to thefore and prop Kafu Misiuataalso

having ablinder, Kaiapoi made themost

of their opportunities.

At fullback, MattyTuatangaloa was

dangerous withevery touch. Bailey

Counihan and JaredGilmore scored the

second half tries for Kaiapoi, both from

lineout drives.

At 27­12, Kaiapoihad thematchinsafe

keeping butGlenmark­Cheviot certainly

didnotlie down.

Matt Jensen who played in the

unfamiliarwingposition was alwaysa

handful and Hamish Gibbdid some

yeoman workupfront. Replacements,

Sake Aca, who was outstandingonthe

wing in the secondhalf,and JordyGray,

both scoredlatertrieswhichatleast

secured two bonus points forthe hosts.

Although Glenmark­Cheviot scored

four triestothree, Kaiapoi deserved its

win.

Glenmark­Cheviot 27 (Nick Hyde, Ethan

McDuff,SakeAca andJordy Graytries,

Cogs Harnett,CalebBeck, 1conversion

each)lost to Kaiapoi 29 (Zac Andrews,

Bailey Counihan,Jared Gilmore tries,

Taine JacobsLawson 3conversions, 2

penalties).

Hurunui vWoodend

On Sponsors’dayatCulverden, Hurunui

played alot of rugby in the firsthalf

without scoring many points.Woodend

made anuisance of itselfatthe

breakdown, making Hurunui pay forany

isolated carries.

Hurunuidid manage twotries in the

firsthalf —one by hooker BenFunnell

andone to halfbackJono Schwass who

continued his strongform.

It took a14­0lead in to thebreak.

Early in thesecondhalf,Woodend

closed thegap whenJordySwainekicked

twopenalties, oneofthemaprodigious

effortfrom halfway. From that point on,

though, Hurunuiwas able to buildmore

phasesand eventually foundholesin

what had beenastoutWoodenddefence.

Nordy Anderson at No 8always carried

strongly forHurunuiand was rewarded

with two second halftrieswhile

replacement Josh Cavanagh also scored.

Kicker KyleMcKenzie was on target for

thehometeam,convertingallfive of

Hurunui’stries.

Hurunui35(Tries for BenFunnell, Jono

Schwass andNordy Anderson(2),Josh

Cavanagh, 1try, KyleMcKenzie 5

conversions) beat Woodend 6 (Jordy

Swaine 2penalties).

Oxford vSaracens

It’s notoften that afather and son

combinationplay together in the same

team in aDivision 1match, but it

happenedlast Saturday when veteran

halfback, TevitaVea,answered thecallto

cover for aspateofrecent injuriesinthe

Saracens team.Whenhecame offthe

bench, hejoined his son Samson, a

flanker in the team.

Saracensdrewfirst blood when Johnny

Matt Roberts, playing in his 100th

Division match forOxford, kickedthe

conversion. Both teamsplayed ahigh

Orange traffic light restrictions are in place -visit waimakariri.govt.nz for further information.

Kaiapoi Road Closures

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

rainfall events.

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

Chapman Place.

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.

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

waimakariri.govt.nz.

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.

Changes to Speed Limits inCust

With safety improvement work complete, speed

limit changes have been rolled out in Cust with a

number of changes in and around the town.

These changes were agreed to by Council aer

consultation with the community last year.

“We know that the speed you are travelling at has

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.

The following road will reduce to 80km/h:

• Cust Road, 80 km/h sign to east of Tallots Road

The following roads will reduce to 50km/h:

• Earlys Road, Cust Road to 100 km/h sign

• Swamp Road, Cust Road to the northern side of

the one-lane bridge

• McKays Lane, entire length

• Mill Road, current 60 km/h zone

• Cust Road, eastern 60 km/h threshold to 1776

SpringstonTrophyturns 50

Springston Pony Club has the honourof

hosting the 50th Springston Trophy

competition at McLeansIslandon

October 6to9.

It also hostedthe first competition in

1972, which has goneonto becomethe

pinnacle event for South Island pony

club riders.

At one stageitwas the largestPony

Club eventinthe southern hemisphere.

Springston also had the honour of

hosting the 25th anniversary of the

competition in 1996.

There were 15 teams in the first event.

Just 25 years later 45 teams competed.

Covid­19forced the cancellation of the

annual event in 2020, pushingthe 50th

celebrations out until this year.

Numbers are falling from the halcyon

days, but it is still eagerly anticipatedby

many pony clubs throughout the South

Island.

As part of the celebration abook has

been compiled by Anne Atkins

celebrating those who founded the event

—Mary Dalley, Joan McCall and Don

Collett.

It also celebrates the guardians,

riders, officials,horses and ponies who

have participated over the years.

One chapter focusesonsome riders

who have gone on to achieve on the

national, and international stage,such

as Jonelle and Tim Price.

The bookisbeing presold, with orders

closingatthe end of August. The order

form is available on the Springston

Trophywebsite.

It is hoped to reach out to riders who

may have taken part in aSpringston

Trophycompetition, but now may live in

the NorthIsland.

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

quarter midgetgrade.

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

him.

‘‘He's got very good equipment,and

he certainly knows how to drive,’’ he

says.

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

says.

Jack was only 11 for the majority of

the racingseason, beating teenagers

older than him, beforeturning 12 in

April.

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

of it.’’

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

blowsthroughthe field.

‘‘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

crowned CanterburyChampionthis

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

lap.’’

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.
