Grant to ride for fun and charity

By JOHN COSGROVE

From theGreater Caucasus to the

Bosphorous Straitisnogentle ride in

the park.

But Grant McIntosh, asemi retired

North Canterbury dairy farmer, is

tackling it on acycle,and along the

way he will be raising funds to help

war victims.

Next weekGrant, who lives in

Pegasus, will board aflight whichwill

take him half way aroundthe world.

After transit stops in Singaporeand

Dubai,he’ll landinGeorgia’scapital,

Tbilisi,the most charming cityinthe

Caucasus, to start his 30 day cycling

adventure.

Ahead of him lies 2400 kmsofuphill

(over 2000vertical metres) and down

dale cycling as he tackles the scenic

but hilly Caucasus Mountain route

from Tbilisi to Istanbul.

‘‘It’s23riding days along the old Silk

Road, we will be riding about 100 kms

inlandfromthe Black Sea all the way

and Iamlooking forward to the

challenge’’hesaid.

‘‘If Ican raise some money to help

those in need in war­torn Ukraine

then that’sgood also.’’

‘‘All the fundsIcan raisewill go to

ReliefAid, aNZcharity working in

Ukraine to deliver food, medicineand

shelter itemsincludingmaterialsand

tools for repairingdamage to peoples

lives who havebeen impacted by the

war.’’

Grant sees his challenging ride as a

way to help, in his own smallway,

those in need and says he chose them

becausethey are akiwi­based charity.

‘‘I could have raisedmoneyfor the

big aid agencies, but that wouldhave

been lostinthe process, so Ilooked

around and found the ReliefAid

‘Communities Under Fire’appeal

which is run by akiwi Mike Seawright.

‘‘He’s on the groundinUkraine, and

very gratefulfor the Kiwi support

which is enabling ReliefAidtodeliver

humanitarianaid to the heart of the

conflict.’’

Grant still visits his dairyfarm in

Culverden to help out when he’snot

clockingupover 400 kms kilometres a

weekgetting in shape for the big ride.

Thisisnot his first cycling

adventure. He has riddencycle tours

in Madagascar and China, so he knows

whattoexpect fromlong days in the

saddle.

‘‘I’ll be part of agroupof26other

international cyclists.

‘‘We will get up earlyand cycle

between70to140 kmseach day, then

in the afternoon we’ll eitherpitch our

tents or check into ahotel, and spend

the restofthe day looking around

theseamazingcountries.’’

He says that eachday, he, the three

otherkiwis alsoonthe ride,and the

rest of the group, will make theirown

way to the nextway point usingGPS to

guidethem through towns and cities

and across the vast mountain ranges.

‘‘Some days it willbehard, some

easy,like one day when we have to

climbvery quickly from 140m above

sea leveluptoapass at 2000m, but

then it’s anice downhill for the next

100 plus kilometres before another

quickclimb.”

‘‘I picked this tour because Iwanted

to see this very unique and old partof

the world.

He says he’s prepared for the

physical challenges, and with

communicating with localsina

country where few people speak

english, but the riding conditions on

the roads and in the cities arehis main

concern.

‘‘It has been15years sincethe

Canadian based tour group has run a

tour that passedthrough Georgia.

‘‘Thelasttime was 2007 then the

Russians invaded, so it willbean

adventurefor everyonethis time,’’

Stand up for your community

By DAVID HILL

LOCAL DEMOCRACY REPORTER

North Canterbury councils are

struggling to attract candidates for this

year’s local government elections. But

Kaikoura is bucking the trend.

With just aweek to go, electoral

officers in Hurunui and Waimakariri

are scratching their heads at the lack of

nominations for this year’s local

government elections.

The stage is set for amayoral race in

Kaikoura, with two candidates lining up

to challenge incumbent Mayor Craig

Mackle.

Former Kaikoura Mayor Kevin Heays

wants his old job back, while former

councillor Ted Howard has announced

his run against Mr Mackle.

Mr Mackle said Kaikoura was ‘‘a very

diverse community’’ and he looked

forward to the campaign.

‘‘If I’ve done agood job, I’ll soon find

out!’’

Hurunui District Council deputy

electoral officer Naomi Woodham said

there had been some issues with loading

candidates on the electionz.com

website, but there had yet to be arush of

nominations.

‘‘Democracy is so important and I

know people are tired, but your district

needs you ­Hurunui needs you.’’

She did expect some nominations over

the next week from some sitting

councillors before deadline, but there

did not appear to be ‘‘a lot of interest or

engagement’’.

Covid fatigue may be factor, she said.

‘‘I did think with issues like the RMA

(Resource Management Act) and Three

Waters reforms that there might be abit

of interest, because it’s really important

that local people speak up on these

issues.

‘‘But maybe people are tired. It’s been

ahard few years.’’

If candidates were stuck at home with

Covid, they could submit forms online,

as long as they were signed by two

eligible nominees.

Waimakariri District Council deputy

electoral officer Sarah Nichols

suspected last week’s wet weather may

have turned people off.

No nominations have so far been

received from the growing towns of

Woodend and Pegasus for either council

or the Woodend­Sefton Community

Board.

Just one nomination has been

received for the Oxford­Ohoka

Community Board, with six positions

available.

‘‘It would be nice to see more diversity

and to see more young people and more

women,’’ Ms Nichols said.

‘‘The community board is ideal for

someone who is working or has family

Hurunui Theatre Group presents

commitments, but still wants to

contribute as there’s less time

commitment and usually only one

meeting amonth.

‘‘Our key message is not to leave it to

the last day.’’

Nominations close at 12 noon on

Friday, August 12, while billboard

signage is permitted to go up from

Saturday, August 6.

Top spot to holiday in Hanmer

By SHELLEY TOPP

Ateam mantra of ‘‘memories for life’’

and the recognition it is often the little

things that make adifference, have

helped the Hanmer Springs TOP 10

Holiday Park take away atop

international award.

It has won the People’s Choice Award

at the Lion Hospitality Awards for

Excellence 2022.

The Hanmer Springs park was up

against stiff competition, including

luxury international hotel chains and

lodges, and much­loved New Zealand

motels, restaurants, bars and cafes.

Jacqui Anderson, who owns the holiday

park with her husband Dean, says to

Business hub in hot demand

By SHELLEYTOPP

The new Rangiora Business Hub is

attracting huge interest with 18 of 35 lots

in the development now sold or under

contract.

With industrial land in Canterbury in

short supply, sections in the industrial

park, on the corner of Fernside and

Todds roads, in Southbrook, were

expected to be in big demand.

However, the level of interest has

surpassed expectations, says Colliers

Christchurch director of industrial, Sam

Staite.

event was a‘‘real buzz’’, but then win the

People’s Choice Award really pushed

the excitement level off the charts.

‘‘Thanks to all our fantastic guests who

voted for us.’’

The park caters for everyone, with

facilities including new architecturallydesigned,

stand­alone luxury

apartments, well appointed selfcontained

units and cabins through to

powered and non­powered sites for

caravans, campervans and tents.

‘‘The jumping pillow, fun bikes and

playground where the kids can happily

play for hours, the barista coffee

available at reception, locally­made

gourmet pizzas which guests can cook on

the outdoor pizza ovens, asoak in one of

the private on­site wood­fired hot tubs

‘‘We knew there would be strong

interest from owner­occupiers,

investors and tenants, but even we were

surprised by the speed of sales,’’ he says.

‘‘The key drawcard is that the

Rangiora Business Hub provides the

opportunity to secure affordable,

freehold industrial land in one of the

highest growth commercial locations in

the district.’’

The main entrance to the 13.8ha

business hub, which offers freehold

titles with options ranging from 1200sqm

to 1.35 hectares in size, is on Todds

Road, near Flaxton Road, with

or aluxurious shower in the Italian tiled

bathrooms, complete with underfloor

heating, make Hanmer Springs TOP 10

Holiday Park, aspecial place for a

holiday,’’ says Jacqui.

There is also an on­site meeting room

which is an ideal spot for team building

and small retreats with attendees able to

have meetings under the radar. Jet

boating and world class food are also on

the doorstep.

‘‘Everyone visiting Hanmer Springs

TOP 10 Holiday Park gets to relax and

enjoy themselves in arange of first­class

quality accommodation, with some

unexpected surprises, five­star touches,

and warm, friendly customer service.’’

The awards were held at Auckland’s

Grand Millennium Hotel on July 27.

‘‘Southbrook, and particularly

Flaxton Road, has grown significantly

over recent years as industry and

services have responded to the everincreasing

population of the

Waimakariri District,’’ Sam says.

‘‘This growth has created ashortage of

industrial land available for sale,

particularly smaller lots.’’

The business hub is being developed

by Mainland Capital, aSouth Islandbased

Local government has afuture

By DAVID HILL,

Local Democracy Reporter

Local government has apositivefuture,

despite the uncertainty of reform, says

Waimakariri District Councilsenior

manager Simon Markham.

Three Waters,local governmentand

Resource Management Act reformand

climate change legislation are changing

the nature of localgovernment and then

there is the challenge of getting people

engaged in elections.

But Mr Markham, who has more than

30 years experience working in the

sector, said councils would continue to

play arole for yearstocome.

‘‘I don’t thinkanyone is saying ‘pick

up your bucketsand spades and go

home’.There’s plenty of services,needs

and requirements that councils deliver

to their communities.

‘‘Councilscollect the rates, maintain

the roads, provide libraries, community

facilitiesand swimming pools, enforce

building regulations and maintain

cemeteries.

‘‘You name it we do it. It’smuch more

than threewaters.’’

Mr Markham has worked in local

governmentsince the 1980sand during

his time at the Waimakariri District

Council he led the council’srecovery

from the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes as

recovery manager.

He plans to leave the council in

October to focus on consultancy work,

advising councils on the futureoflocal

government.

The future of localgovernmentpanel,

led by former WaimakaririDistrict

Council chief executive Jim Palmer,

presented its interim report earlier this

year asking fivekey questions.

These included the shape of local

Simon Markham

governance,the roleoflocal

government,the relationship with Te

Tiriti oWaitangi, relationships with

central governmentand how to finance

local government.

‘‘The challengesthat we face are

significant and it’s differenttowhen the

current system was set up in 1989,’’Mr

Markham said.

‘‘Climate change was aroundin1989,

but moreinthe academicand research

world ­and now it’s arrived.’’

One handbrake for councils was

funding,with around90percent of tax

and ratescollected in New Zealand

goingtocentral government.

This meantcouncils were

increasinglyreliant on central

government support, whilefacing an

increasedburdenfrom legislation, Mr

Markham said.

‘‘When you look at issueslike climate

change or housing, you need to look at

what needstobefundedtomeet

expectationsand what is affordable for

acountry of our size.

‘‘Andthen, what should be councils’

shareand what should be central

government’s share and Idon’tthink

we’veresolvedthat yet.’’

Mr Markham saideven if Three

Waters reform continued down its

present path,local government still had

arole to play.

‘‘It will change from being the

provider of services and infrastructure

to being more focused on the wellbeing

of communities.’’

But councilshad arole to play as

advocatesfor their communities and

seeking solutions.

New elected councils will havelittle

time to put their feet under the table, as

the future of localgovernment panel

was due to present its

recommendations in October.

Mr Markham said it willbeimportant

for councillors to give feedback, ahead

of the final report due to be presented

to the GovernmentinJune.

Waste trips

will be just

one aweek

By DAVID HILL,

Local Democracy Reporter

The Kaikoura District Councilsays

transferring its waste to Kate Valley

will require just one truckround trip

per week.

The council has entered into anew

solidwaste contract whichtook effect

on July 1, which willsee the district’s

wastebegin being transferred to the

Kate Valley Landfill and EnergyPark.

Senior operations managerDave

Clibbery said around1500 tonnes per

year of refuse,anaverageofabout 30

tonnes per week, has been going to the

Kaikoura Landfill.

It willnow instead be sent to Kate

Valley Landfill and EnergyPark.

‘‘Once the transferstation is

completedinthe next few months,

refuse will be compressed into

capsules that each contain about 25

tonnes of waste,’’ Mr Clibbery says.

‘‘As such only around one truck

roundtrip per weekwill be needed,

perhaps even lessifB­train trucksare

used which can carry two capsules.

‘‘In comparison the average level of

heavyvehicle traffic on StateHighway

1alongthe route to Kate Valley is

around 4000vehicles perweek.’’

Innovative WasteKaikoura (IWK) is

in the process of constructing a

transferstation at the existing

Kaikoura landfill site to help cater for

the new arrangement.

Sports awards return

after 3year absence

The MainPower North Canterbury

Sports Awards promise to be the biggest

and most diverse in the award’s 20 year

history.

They return this year after athree year

Covid­enforced break, and organisers

are now appealing for people to

nominate their local sporting heroes for

the 2022 Awards.

Many have been glued to the

Commonwealth Games and the amazing

performance by Kiwi athletes, and it is

hoped their focus will now turn closer to

home and look to the performance of

home­grown North Canterbury athletes.

This year’s awards will encompass

sporting achievements by athletes,

coaches, officials and supporters since

2019, with this extended timeframe

offsetting the reduction in opportunities

both local and internationally due to the

pandemic.

However through those years we have

seen Olympics (both summer and

winter), Commonwealth Games and

world championships, as sports have

found ways to hold their major events in

spite of Covid restrictions.

As aresult the awards organisers –The

North Canterbury Sport &Recreation

Trust ­isexpecting awider variety of

sporting people and codes to be

nominated for this year’s event.

Sports Trust CEO Michael Sharpe says

while the last three years have been

tough for all sports and sports people, it

has highlighted the sector’s resilience

and fortitude to make the best of every

situation.

‘‘In particular we see the way sports

club committees and competition

organisers have adapted to provide

opportunities for their participants at

all levels under arange of restrictions.

Yes many events have been cancelled

but most sporting codes have been able

to change and evolve, and those sports

will be stronger in the future because of

this.’’

While much of the focus at all sports

awards goes on the top athletes and

teams, the MainPower North Canterbury

Sports Awards also places much

emphasis on the grass­roots contribution

Award venue ... The awards will be the

first gala event to be held in the MainPower

Stadium.

of coaches, administrators, clubs and

events, and to those who provide

exceptional long­term service to local

sports in any capacity.

‘‘Like any small province we can

produce the Anton Coopers and the

Angie Petty’s, but we can’t hold on to

them forever,’’ says Sharpe.

‘‘So while we’ll celebrate these

champions for as long as we have them,

we’ll also celebrate those people behind

the scenes who help to produce these top

athletes, as well as everyone else

involved in sport at every level.’’

The North Canterbury Sports Awards

has 13 categories covering all aspects of

sporting achievement, including senior

and junior sportsman and woman,

coach, administrator, official, athlete

with adisability, team, masters athlete

or team, club and event, as well as three

service to sport awards.

The 2022 edition will be the first gala

event to be held in the new MainPower

Stadium with table settings for up to 400

people.

You can nominate your deserving

sports heroes at www.sportstrust.org.nz.

Millie-Jane is aiming for higher honours

By JOHN COSGROVE

The top woman shooter on the day at last

Sunday’s North Canterbury Secondary

School clay target champs, was 16­yearold

Hurunui College student, Millie­

Jane McIlraith.

Millie­Jane picked up several awards,

including being amember of the

winning ladies team with fellow

Hurunui College student Maggie

Fergusson, and the third highest point

scoring senior award, with ascore of 85

out of 90, only three points behind the

top shooter overall.

Amember of the New Zealand Open

Women’ Skeet Clay Target shooting

team, Millie­Jane says it was agood

competition.

‘‘I did very well, Iwas using it as a

build­up for the National Secondary

School Shooting competition which will

be held in Christchurch in October, and

then the following month, Ihope to be

competing in the NZ National Skeet

Shooting Championships.’’

Over the weekend 70 competitors

came from eight high schools and were

arranged into five groups competing in

the skeet shooting section and 12 in the

rise section.

Millie­Jane said it was fun to be there

among so many good competitors.

Her father, Robert McIlraith, says it

was so good to see so many students

competing there.

‘‘It was great to see all the kids there,

there is aheap of talent out there in

secondary schools and it bodes well for

the future of competition shooting in our

country.’’

Millie­Jane, who is also the chair of

the Hurunui Youth Council, has ahectic

schedule and yet she somehow manages

to fit all her training in each week.

This includes travelling from the

family farm in Harwarden to Waihora

near Tai Tapu each weekend to train at

the Waihora Clay Target Club, to shoot

over 100 targets each week, and to take

part in anumber of shooting

competitions held in other locations

around the South Island.

Her recent run of winning

performances over the past couple of

years has been rewarded by sponsorship

deals offered by Kilwell Sports and Gun

City.

‘‘The Amberley Gun Club have always

been ahuge support to me and all the

other other junior shooters,’’ she says.

Now her goal is to do well in both the

Secondary School Nationals, and again

in the New Zealand Skeet Nationals.

Council happy with investigation

By DAVID HILL,

Local Democracy Reporter

ANorth Canterbury council chief

executive says an investigation into

local government meetings will help

boost public confidence.

The Waimakariri District Council is

one of eight councils named by Chief

Ombudsman Peter Boshier for an

investigation into decision making

behind closed doors.

Acting chief executive Jeff Millward

said he only found out about the

investigation through media reports, but

was confident his council stood up to

scrutiny.

‘‘I can understand why the

Ombudsman is doing it.

‘‘I think it’s agood idea and we are

very happy to be apart of it because it’s

only going to improve clarity and build

public confidence.’’

Mr Millward said the timing of the

investigation was unfortunate, with

local government elections looming.

Councils were also faced with Three

Waters, resource management and local

government reform, high inflation and

staff recruitment challenges, he said.

‘‘Our council is dealing with it, but

there must be councils out there who are

struggling with the reforms and with the

environment that we are in.’’

The Waimakariri District Council has

consistently received aAArating in

Local Government New Zealand’s

excellence programme.

‘‘I assume we are in the mix because of

we are the highest rated council in the

country,’’ Mr Millward said.

‘‘When we did the Local Government

excellence review we scored highly for

finance and our governance was also

highlighted.

‘‘We do struggle sometimes and

there’s points you always fail on, but in

Acting CEO ... Jeff Millward

the latest review we did pretty well.’’

The other named councils were

Rotorua Lakes Council, Taranaki

Regional Council Taupō District

Council, Palmerston North City Council,

Rangitikei District Council, Timaru

District Council and Clutha District

Council.

‘‘I have chosen these councils for a

variety of reasons,’’ Mr Boshier said.

‘‘Some councils are getting it right. I

want to understand how they achieve

this and share their good practices with

other councils so we can all learn from

this investigation.’’

The investigation was launched in

response to complaints made against

council decision making at workshops

and public excluded meetings.

‘‘The public may become suspicious if

councils repeatedly use closed

workshops or informal meetings to

discuss issues,’’ Mr Boshier said.

Mr Millward said he was not aware of

any complaints against his council.

While the Waimakariri District

Council often used workshops to debate

issues, minutes were taken and were

publicly available, he said.

All council decisions were made at

meetings.

Public excluded meetings were

generally held when there were privacy

concerns or information was

commercially sensitive.

The decisions to hold workshops or

public excluded meetings were based on

staff recommendations, but elected

members could override those

decisions.

But Mr Millward did acknowledge that

councils appeared to be conducting

more business behind closed doors.

‘‘We have found since the

earthquakes, that we are dealing with a

lot more sensitive issues and Iwonder if

it’s areflection of the environment we

are in.

‘‘I don’t think they will find anything,

but if they do we will adjust our

operations to suit.’’

The Chief Ombudsman’s report is

expected to be released next year.

Major step for project in red zone

By DAVID HILL,

Local Democracy Reporter

Kaiapoi’s multi­million

dollar mahinga kai project is

set to take amajor step

forward with the signing of a

new trust deed agreement.

The Waimakariri District

Council last week approved a

co­govenance agreement

with Te Kohaka oTuhaitara

Trust to manage the Huria

Reserve, heritage and

mahinga kai area.

The initiative is akey

project from the Waimakariri

Residential Red Zone

Recovery Plan and comprises

eight hectares of land in the

Kaiapoi south regeneration

area.

The reserve is located to

the south of Kaiapoi River,

straddling the south bank,

and continues south to sit

between the proposed

Kaiapoi Community Hub and

Courtenay Lake.

It is apartnership between

the council and Te Runanga o

Ngai Tuahuriri.

The council is contributing

$1.74 million over five years

to the project, which was

established in the 2018 Long

Term Plan, and will retain

ownership of the land.

Waimakariri District

Council community and

recreation manager Chris

Brown said the trust will

manage the area under a

lease agreement and will

seek additional funding from

other sources.

Mayor Dan Gordon said the

project was an important part

of Kaiapoi’s ongoing

regeneration.

‘‘It’s afantastic partnership

and I'm in full support of it.

It’s good to see this finally

coming to fruition.

‘‘The project will create a

public reserve with walkways

and board walks through

native planted areas,

opportunities for mahinga

kai, natural play areas,

educational zones and

interpretive signage to tell

the local stories and history.’’

Representatives from the

council, trust and runanga

have formed ajoint working

group to work on the project

design and construction.

Construction is under way,

with work on the pathways

tendered and awarded to

Citycare Property in May and

due to be completed this

month.

The first round of planting

was completed on June 30,

with 4000 native plants and

shrubs planted.

‘‘This included five totara

trees that will greet visitors to

the entrance of the reserve

area and lead them through

the paths,’’ Mr Gordon said.

Landscape design and

master planning for the

second stage of works is

under way.

The reserve area design

takes into account the

interim licence to occupy

held by the WHoW Charitable

Trust for the Kaikanui

Aqualand NZ aqua play park

facility on Courtenay Lake.

By DAVID HILL,

LocalDemocracy Reporter

Mai Young Parents’ College have

received agenerous donation of 150

books.

The books were donated by Laura

Caygill, from the Waimakariri Libraries.

Laura was part of the judging panel for

the New Zealand Book Awards for

given acopy of each book to read as part

of the role.

‘‘You could definitely say Ihad a

summer of reading,’’ Laura says.

All books entered in the awards are

written by New Zealand authors and

Laura says she was very impressed with

the calibre of entries.

‘‘It was fantastic. There certainly were

alot of books, with such adiverse range

of themes and perspectives.

‘‘I think we are so lucky to have so

many talented authors in New Zealand

and these awards are afantastic way to

showcase that talent and engage young

people in reading.

‘‘We had some wonderful discussions

on the judging panel and Iknow we were

all really impressed with the books

coming through for our young readers in

New Zealand.

‘‘Many of these books would easily

stand up on the international stage,’’

Laura says.

Waimakariri Libraries, in

collaboration with the community have

created online virtual storytimes to

celebrate the awards.

They have also produced aBooks

Alive digital event showcasing one of the

Young Adult Fiction finalists ­ Learning

Extension for park

By DAVIDHILL,

Local Democracy Reporter

Kaiapoi’s proposed aqua sportspark is a

step closer after the Waimakariri District

Council agreedinprinciple to extend its

memorandum of understanding by up to

threeyears.

It means the WHoWCharitable Trust

will have another three years to develop its

plan for surfwave, whitewaterand cable

wakeboard facilitiesalongside its

inflatable play park in the Kaiapoi east

regeneration area, to the northofKaiapoi

River.

Arevisedagreement will now be

negotiated between thecouncil and the

trustuntilAugust 2025, before being

brought back to the council for final

approval.

The original agreement was signed in

August 2020 and was due to expirethis

month.

‘‘Thelast two years have been

particularly challenging in developing

plansfor largerecreationalfacilities

requiringsignificant funding under Covid

restrictions and difficult economic

conditions,’’actingchief executive Jeff

Millwardsays.

‘‘Thecouncilwas, however, impressed

with the WHoW Trust’scommitment to the

concept and the district through

progressingthe Aqualand NZ project in

Courtenay Lake, which successfully

trialled at asmallscale elements proposed

for the AquasportsPark.’’

The trust launched its temporaryaqua

playpark on Courtenay Lake, to the south

of Kaiapoi River, in November under a

three­year licensetooccupyagreement

with the council.

Councillors also considered an

alternative proposal from the Kaiapoi East

Residents’ Association (KERA)for an

alternative use of the land.

KERAmade adeputation to the

Kaiapoi­Tuahiwi Community Board last

month requesting alicence to occupy the

Family Trust tax reporting requirements

Thosewho haveaFamily Trust may

like to checktheir position withthe

team of legal experts at Helmore

Stewart, Rangiora.

The Governmentrecently increased

the highest income tax rate for annual

incomes over $180,000 from33% to

39%.

For one reasonoranother,the

Governmentdid notincrease the

income tax ratefor Trusts, which

remainsat33%.

The Governmenthas since

discovered that somehigh income

earners havebeen allocating their

income through their Trusts to benefit

from the lower Trustincome taxrate.

In response,ithas enacted changes

to the Tax Administration Act 1994 to

enable the InlandRevenue

Department (IRD)tokeep acloser eye

on Trusts anddeter high income

earners gainingatax advantageby

allocating incometoaTrust.

Thesechanges applyfrom the start

of the 2022 financialyear,which for

most Trustswill be April1,2021.

In general terms,the impact of these

recent changescan be summarised by

the following two options:

If your Trust earns an annual

income under $200 and there are no

deductions, and no income is

allocatedtobeneficiaries instead of

beingretained by the Trust, thenthe

trustees must file aNon­Active Trust

Declaration(form IR633)with the

IRD.

If Option 1does not apply, then the

trustees mustfile atax returnwith the

IRD andprovide alarge amount of

additional informationrelatingto

their Trust.

In manyinstances,your Trust’s

accountant mayhave already

arranged compliance with thesenew

IRD reporting requirements, andyou

may liketocheck this position with

the accountant.

But for legaladvice Helmore Stewart

can assist in regard to compliance

with the Tax AdministrationAct, and

welcomes you call.

Abaking career sure to rise for baker Sue

23

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Sue Brocherie was humbled

when her name was put

forward to do abakery

apprenticeship.

The bubbly Artisan by

Rangiora Bakery production

supervisory baker, who is in her

late 40s, was inwardly petrified,

but grabbed the opportunity.

Sue has gone on to prove age

is no barrier to learning and

upskilling.

‘‘It’s never too late. For those

of us who have done avariety of

things in our lives and have lots

of life experience, but don't

have any formal qualifications,

this is an opportunity to get that

qualification, have that feeling

of accomplishment, fulfillment,

and achievement.

‘‘You're never too old to

learn,’’ Sue says.

While doing an

apprenticeship seemed the

logical next step in her career,

Sue says it was scary as she had

not done any study for 30 years.

‘‘But Ithought as Iwas baking

for aliving, why not become

qualified?’’

The prospect of all the papers

she had to complete was

daunting, but once she started,

it wasn't too bad.

Surrounded by experience in

the bakery where she has

worked for the past 14 years,

and making the most of the

learning and reference

material supplied as part of her

apprenticeship, along with

Google, Sue completed her

three year cake baking

qualification in 2021.

Now she is half way through

her 18­month pastry strand

qualification.

Sue is abig fan of the earn

and learn model that comes

with being an apprentice.

‘‘Earning while you learn for

mature students is definitely

the way to go. You can't beat on

the job training.

‘‘A lot of people learn by

doing, and this is the perfect

way to do that.’’

Sue started out making

muffins at the Rangiora Bakery.

‘‘As the bakery has evolved,

so has my role,’’ says Sue, who

is now the production

supervisor of the cake, slice,

bread and meat pie areas.

She has always loved baking

—acraft she inherited from her

mother. She remembers fondly

as achild mixing up bowls of

flour, sugar, water and sultanas

in her playhouse and her

mother baking creations in the

kitchen.

‘‘Baking has always been

more than just achore. Ilove

doing it.

‘‘At home, 99% of my baking is

given away —it’s my happy

place. It is also something Iam

good at and since doing my

apprenticeship, I'm challenging

myself with things Iwould

never have tried making

previously.’’

Competenz account

managers have played akey

role in Sue’s learning journey,

with regular visits throughout

the year and popping in to see

her while she’s been on ablock

course.

‘‘At each visit you receive

Next step ... Apprentice baker Sue Brocherie, who is in her late 40s, has completed her three year cake

baking qualification and is now halfway through her 18­month pastry strand qualification.

your progress report and to be

above the line always gives me

asecret thrill,’’ Sue says.

‘‘The enthusiasm and

encouragement from

Competenz is above and

beyond. Rangiora Bakery has

also been incredibly supportive

and the progress and success of

their apprentices is always

appreciated and celebrated.

‘‘The wealth of knowledge of

management and senior staff is

soaked up by all of us,’’ she says.

Rangiora Bakery has four

female and two male

apprentices, and Sue urges all

mature people who might be

considering anew career ‘‘to

just do it’’.

Sue’s employer, Rangiora

Bakery General Manager Frank

Janssen, says the Government’s

Apprenticeship Boost scheme

has allowed the business to

take on new talent by

subsidising the training fees.

Following the 2022 budget,

the scheme was extended until

the end of December 2023.

‘‘There are no problems to get

apprentices. We have awaiting

list among our staff which is

really cool. They are very keen

to learn.

‘‘We normallyallow staff that

have been herefor acouple of

yearsand are serious to sign

up.’’

Mr Janssen is very

supportive of Sue’straining.

‘‘Sueisdoing great. She had

worked here already for 10

plus years as asupervisor

before she started her

apprenticeship.

‘‘Shehas alot of

responsibilities, and the

baking knowledgethat she gets

from her training helpsher to

do her job evenbetter.’’

Qualmark for Greystone

Waipara’s Greystone Wines has

been awarded Qualmark

recognition under the

Sustainable Tourism Business

criteria.

The certification, which is

supported by Tourism NZ, comes

after Greystone’s recent

recognition as Toit Envirocare

net carbonzero certified.

Qualmark General Manager

Steven Dixon says Greystone

Wines has avery compelling

story to tell, as acertified organic

winery and vineyard.

‘‘The diversity of soil types,

aspects and the different

varieties planted has created a

high­quality, wide and

interesting selection of wines for

their cellar door experience.

‘‘The restaurant experience

and menu using locally­sourced

ingredients only add to the guest

experience,’’ Mr Dixon says.

The Qualmark certification is

designed to help travellers select

experiences based on excellence

and best practise in high­quality,

safe and sustainable

experiences.

Greystone general manager

Nick Gill says Greystone is proud

to show excellence in the

sustainability space.

‘‘We’ve dedicated endless

hours and resources to reduce

our environmental impact over

several years, however we’re still

in the early days and we only

want to keep improving all areas

of the business.

‘‘We’ve proven it is possible to

be carbon­certified and organic

and we hope our efforts

encourage others in the wine

industry to follow suit.’’

Greystone’s entire 50­hectare

vineyard, located in the North

Canterbury wine region, is

certified organic with BioGro

New Zealand. The company has

clocked up numerous awards,

with the award­winning

Vineyard Ferment Pinot Noir

produced using an age­old

outdoor winemaking method that

sees grapes handpicked and

fermented outside in the

vineyard rows where the fruit is

grown.

Saying no urged

Groundswell NZ is launching

a Say No campaign aimed

property owners interacting

with the Government over

demands for information

‘‘used to harmfood

producers and rural

communities’’.

Groundswell NZ cofounder

Bryce McKenzie

says the organisation is

calling for New Zealand's

farmers and growers to say

no to allowing public

agencies to survey on your

private land.

It says the surveyscarried

out under the RMA and the

NPS­IB willmake liabilities

out of the natural, cultural,

and historic features on

private land,when central

and local governmentshould

be empowering landowners

to care for them.

Groundswell also wants

them to say no to

participating in central

government­controlled farm

plans.

‘‘Theone­size­fits­all

approach the Government is

taking to farm plans is riding

roughshod over the industry

and regional council farm

plansthat haveserved

farmers and communities

well for years.Say no to

calculating your emissions

number. Foodproducers

have apart to play in

addressing climate warming

and the calculations made in

the Know Your Number

programme will obscure this

role by failing to accountfor

carbon sequestration and the

minimal warming effect of

methane,’’MrMcKenzie

says.

Winter grazingisalso

targetedinthe campaign.

Groundswell wants farmers

to say no to the request for

resourceconsent for winter

grazing.

‘‘Wintergrazing

regulations remain

unworkable, and the slope

ruleshave little to do with

how waterwaysare actually

affected by winter grazing.

Farmers shouldbe

responsible for the actual

effect they haveon

waterways, not for a

bureaucrats assumptions

aboutthe slope of their land.

‘‘Freshwater issuesare

best addressed by

prioritising action on those

waterbodies most at risk and

by councils workingin

partnership withtheir

communities,asexemplified

by the hugely successful

Catchment Groups

approach.’’ Mr McKenzie

says the actionisashortterm

necessity untilthe

Governmentputs workable

regulations in place which

achieve ‘‘real environmental

outcomes and respect the

privacy of propertyrightsof

thosethey affect’’.

North Canterbury farmers earn top award

By JOHN COSGROVE

Developing an environmentally

sustainable dairying and beef farming

operation which has evolved to become

ahub of community activities has

earned ahusband­and­wife farming

couple atop rural award.

The People in Primary Sector title at

this year’s Canterbury Ballance Farm

Environment Awards, was awarded to

North­Canterbury couple Geoff and

Rochelle Spark who own and manage

Torlesse Farm in Eyrewell,

Waimakariri.

In assessing the Spark’s entry into the

awards, the judges commended the

couple on actively building connections

between “town and country,” along with

sharing their property with the wider

community for farm visits, and

generously supporting rural health and

wellbeing organisations such as Farm

Strong and the Rural Support Trust.

In addition to developing astrong

community involvement programme

across the region, the judges were

impressed at how Geoff and Rochelle

Spark have invested substantially in

Torlesse Farm’s infrastructure –such as

pivot irrigation, the storage dam, soil

temperature and moisture monitoring,

irrigation scheduling, and effluent

storage. The judges also commended

Torlesse Farm’s winter grazing

management –using catch crops such as

oats after winter grazing crops to extract

as much nitrogen as possible from the

soil profile.

“We need to protect the future

productivity of the land. The

replacement of k­lines and individual

sprinklers in corners for more

environmentally friendly and efficient

set sprinklers, help reduce nitrate

losses,” says Geoff.

Geoff and Rochelle Spark entered the

Ballance Farm Environment Awards

because they believed they had a

positive business story to share.

They sought to make their rural

commercial activity sustainable and

perform at ahigh standard, not only

from aproduction perspective, but also

including environmental stewardship.

Torlesse Farm runs about 1700 dairy

cows on 450­hectares, with afurther 400

hectares split between dairy support

and beef grazing.

The Sparks have diversified their

business to include grazing and grass

sales, in addition to operating a

commercial weigh bridge and a

purpose­built function venue.

The couple moved on to the family

owned Torlesse Farm in 1995,

eventually buying it from Geoff’s

parents in 2005.

They believe good infrastructure and

management programmes provide the

foundations of long term sustainability,

and activities such as regenerating

native bush, trapping possums, and

enhance their property.

Within Torlesse Farm is a5.5­hectare

irrigation storage lake which has been

enhanced around its banks with native

plants to provide aclean and totally

swimmable amenity for arange of

community events.

The lake hosts the Canterbury

Primary School Triathlon which attracts

between 800–1000 competitors, and the

OxMan multi­sports event for all ages

and abilities, with around 400

participants swimming, cycling, and

running.

With apurpose­built function venue

overlooking the lake, the Sparks also

host multiple charity and community

organisations on the property ­involving

members of the public from across

Canterbury’s towns, and even

Christchurch city.

“These events help foster a

connection between town and country.

Our philosophy in farming is long term.

We go by the motto ‘plant atree you

never see’, We have planted more than

1,000 native plants around our irrigation

storage lake,” says Geoff.

The Sparks, their long­term

sharemilkers of 12­years, and all their

staff, operate with apositive ‘solutionsfocused’

approach –meaning

Geoff is also adedicated advocate for

the Farm Strong wellbeing programme –

an initiative which helps farmers and

primary producers to cope with the

pressures of farming, ranging from

drought and flood weather conditions,

evolving Government legislation on the

rural sector, and the unpredictability of

commodity prices.

same treatment is completed on the outside of the

building. Access to the Centre will be maintained

throughout the works via the rear entrance off the

Hilton Street car park.

Noise created by the blasting unit may be loud

at times and we are taking steps to mitigate the

impact by erecting hoardings, but we apologise for

any disruption to library-goers and venue users.

Fencing and signage will be in place around the

work site for the duration. Work is expected to be

finished on or before Wednesday 24 August.

There’s Still Time to Take aStand

Waimakariri District Council is calling on

community advocates to put their name in the

mix to stand for Mayor, councillor orcommunity

board member with nominations closing at midday

Friday 12 August.

It’s anexciting time to be part of local government

and local elections are agreat opportunity to see

your community progress from your dedication.

Successful local election candidates are those

that take the time to listen to their communities,

engage with the people within them and go on to

champion their voice as their representative.

Candidates must be aNew Zealand citizen and

enrolled on the electoral roll. They don’t need to

live inthe area they represent but do need to be

nominated by two people enrolled in the area they

wish to represent.

For more information about standing, enrolling

and voting, visit

Chlorination of Kaiapoi East Water Supply

Council have continued to carry out extensive

testing of the water supply in North Kaiapoi since

chlorine was turned off on the supply in March

2022. While the testing had been good, recent

testing is showing increased levels of organic

materials in the supply and we have chlorinated

the supply to allow ustoinvestigate further.

The most likely cause is sediment including

organic material that has slowly built up in the

pipework. While our testing shows that the water

is still safe todrink, this signals apotential risk

to the system and the addition of chlorine tothe

supply isprecautionary.

This only affects those properties on the supply

north ofKaiapoi river through to and including The

Pines Beach and Kairaki. As we can separate the

supply at the river, properties to the south of the

river will not be affected.

If youexperience anydiscolouredwater, pleaseflush

your tapsuntil this clears. If this doesn’t clear aer 10

minutes, please let us knowbycalling 0800 965 468.

Additional sampling and investigation work has

started to determine the source of the issue. The

level of chlorine will be consistent with national

guidelines and standards. We do understand the

community’s preference for unchlorinated water

and are doing everything we can to resolve the

issue as soon as possible.
