Bill is flawed,<br />

and lacks<br />

accountability<br />

—NCcouncils<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Daffodils making adifference<br />

The Water Services Entities Bill is based on flawed<br />

analysis and needs aproperindependent review,<br />

due to the proposedcumbersome governance<br />

structure and lackofaccountability to the asset<br />

owners, says HurunuiDistrict Councilchief<br />

executive Hamish Dobbie.<br />

He saysthe novel ‘shareholding’ proposal of the<br />

Bill also denies the rights normally associatedwith<br />

owningashareholdinginanentity.<br />

He called for the bill to be paused until the<br />

reformation of the deliveryofthree waters services<br />

is available for review, when he,and Hurunui<br />

Mayor MarieBlack appeared beforethe finance<br />

and expenditure select committee in Christchurch<br />

last week.<br />

Mr Dobbie and Mrs Blacktold the select<br />

committee the Hurunui District Council on behalf<br />

of its communities, operates acomplexrange of<br />

three waterssystems which supplydrinking water,<br />

stock water, wastewaterand storm water services<br />

acrossthe district.<br />

‘‘These services are fit for purpose, consented,<br />

compliant and affordable both now and in the<br />

future,’’ theysaid.<br />

Mrs Black saidthe elected representatives are<br />

directly responsible to Hurunui District residents<br />

and ratepayers and the consumer voice is heard<br />

strongly through direct governancearrangements.<br />

They said the bill was foundedonpoor<br />

modelling, which needstobeproperly reviewedin<br />

detail, and revised to presentthe truestatus of<br />

affordability of three waters servicesnationally.<br />

“If thisreviewconfirms the casefor larger<br />

entities, thenthe HurunuiDistrict Council holds<br />

significant concerns around the structure,<br />

governance, shareholding and transitionalpowers<br />

containedinthe Bill,” saidMrDobbie.<br />

Meanwhile the WaimakaririDistrict agreed with<br />

its neighbouring council in its submission. It said<br />

the WaterEntities Bill was not the wayforward<br />

because it was not appropriateorworkable.<br />

Danae appreciates support<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

Ayoung Rangiora mothersays the<br />

support she has receivedduring her<br />

treatment for cancer has been<br />

wonderful.<br />

DanaeSaxon, aged 36, was<br />

diagnosed with breast cancer four<br />

yearsago when she had<br />

chemotherapy, amastectomy, breast<br />

reconstruction and radiationduring<br />

her treatmentfor the disease.<br />

Another cancer diagnosis in 2020<br />

was ahugeblow. She has recently<br />

completedfive days of radiation<br />

treatment whichshe saysistiringand<br />

has given her headaches.<br />

As mum to three children aged 2, 8<br />

Reforms hasty, and communities lose out<br />

MayorDan Gordonsaid.<br />

Mr Gordon saidthe key reasons for its<br />

position were:<br />

Thetotalvalueofour Three Waters<br />

funded assetsweare being offered $22m in<br />

Better Off funding andtwo ‘shares’ina<br />

ordinary sense. The communityislosing<br />

with theiractual value.<br />

Waimakariri residents, havingalready<br />

investedintheir own infrastructure, willbe<br />

subsidisingthe costs of upgradesinother<br />

areas. In our view, this is inequitable and<br />

rewards poor infrastructure planning.<br />

It can also result in the perverse outcome<br />

that peopleinsmallercommunitiesend up<br />

subsidisingthe infrastructure costs for<br />

larger urban areas who have not made the<br />

equivalentinvestment.<br />

The submissions saiditwas ironicthe<br />

risk of future privatisation is createdbythe<br />

reform process through taking assets<br />

ownedand managed by 67 entities,and<br />

amalgamating them into fourmegaentities,<br />

who will provide essential services<br />

in amonopoly —astructure ripe for the<br />

pluck of privatisation.<br />

The bill would result in the loss of control<br />

of water servicesinthe district, and<br />

communities would losethe right to be<br />

consulted on levelsofservice and funding.<br />

Civil Defence emergencies, underthe<br />

Entity­basedmodel, would mean council<br />

would lack control and influence during<br />

emergencies,which was aseriousconcern<br />

for the council and community.<br />

‘‘TheBill has not considered the need to<br />

integrate Three Waters services with other<br />

core functions of local authorities such as<br />

civildefence emergency managementand<br />

landuse planning,’’MrGordon said.<br />

‘‘The Bill is disconnectedfrom other<br />

major reforms in local government<br />

including resourcemanagement, civil<br />

defence, building and local government<br />

itself.<br />

‘‘Wedonot believe the Bill should<br />

proceed.<br />

‘‘The Bill is driven by an ideology of<br />

centralisation ratherthan acommitment to<br />

findthe best option to address issues with<br />

Three Waters services,’’ he says.<br />

The reforms were hasty, the databeing<br />

relied on was inaccurate, the draft<br />

legislation was fragmented, and the<br />

processwas disconnected from other key<br />

reformsinlocal government.<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Waimakaririwas the third­fastest<br />

growing economy in New Zealandfor<br />

the yearendedJune <strong>2022</strong>, according to<br />

the latest Waimakariri District<br />

QuarterlyEconomic Monitor by<br />

Infometrics.<br />

‘‘Theeconomyiscurrently walking a<br />

tightropebetweenweak confidence,<br />

high inflation,higher interest rates,a<br />

tightlabour market, and ongoing<br />

supply chaindisruptions on oneside,<br />

and the border reopeningand a<br />

rebound from Red and theOmicron<br />

peak on the other,’’the report says.<br />

Despite this, Waimakaririhas<br />

showna7.3% growthinGDP to June<br />

<strong>2022</strong>.<br />

Therehas beenincreases in<br />

residential buildingconsents (+7.5%),<br />

houseprices (+3.7%), consumer<br />

spending(+7.4%) and tourism<br />

expenditure (+7.3%), with strong<br />

population growth the main driver for<br />

most of the increases.<br />

A2.9% increase in health<br />

enrolmentspoints to acontinuation of<br />

Waimakariri’s upward trend of<br />

attracting new residents.<br />

Employment figuresare also looking<br />

goodfor the district, with employment<br />

rates up 4.1% on last year –higherthan<br />

the national average of 3.2%.<br />

WaimakaririJobseeker Support<br />

Tourismexpenditure increased<br />

from$41 million to $44 million in the<br />

yeartoJune 30.<br />

Thiswas a7.3% increase –anotable<br />

improvement on the country as a<br />

whole which saw a6.6% drop in<br />

tourism expenditure on last year.<br />

Visit WaimakaririTourism<br />

Promotions Manager JanineRogers<br />

saysthere are anumber of factors at<br />

play.<br />

‘‘Weare verylucky in Waimakariri<br />

in that we rely lessoninternational<br />

touriststhan other regions of the<br />

country.<br />

‘‘This means thatour domestic<br />

markethas remained strong<br />

throughout recent years and we are<br />

now alsoseeing moreinternational<br />

visitor enquiriesthroughour i­SITE<br />

on top of our steadfastdomestic<br />

Miles Dalton,Business Support<br />

Manager at Enterprise<strong>North</strong><br />

surprisingly positive.<br />

‘‘The past few years haveobviously<br />

been really tricky to call when it<br />

comes to the economy.<br />

‘‘However, Waimakariri has<br />

consistently shown its resilience with<br />

better­than­expected outcomes each<br />

quarter, consideringthe challenges<br />

Ron keeps the wheels turning<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

When Ron Morrow realised his eyesight<br />

was no longer good enoughtodrivehis car<br />

he madeagenerous decision.<br />

The Rangiora Charles Upham<br />

Retirement Village resident decided to<br />

donate his 2004 Toyota Spacio to the<br />

Cancer Society <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> Centre.<br />

‘‘I thoughtthey might know someone<br />

who needed acar to get to treatment,’’ he<br />

says.<br />

But after givinghis ideamore thought<br />

Ron cameupwith abetter plan which<br />

enabled him to help his daughter, son in<br />

law, and the Cancer Society, at thesame<br />

time.<br />

He realised Catherine and Maurice<br />

needed avehicle upgrade as their work<br />

car had over300,000 kilometres on the<br />

clock, so theydid aswap.<br />

Catherine and Maurice tookover<br />

ownership of Ron’s Toyota, thensold their<br />

old car and gave the money they received<br />

for it to Ron.Heinturn donated it to the<br />

Cancer Society.<br />

‘‘It meant that the Cancer Society didn’t<br />

get quite as much, but Iwas able to help<br />

my family as well,’’ Ron says.<br />

The <strong>Canterbury</strong>Cancer Society<strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong>Centreco­ordinator,Gabrielle<br />

O’Connell, saysthey are ‘‘delighted with<br />

Ron’sextremelygenerous donation of<br />

$2050’’.<br />

Ron, aged‘‘nearly93’’ madethe cash<br />

donationinperson.<br />

He rode all the way from Ryman’s<br />

retirement village on Charles Upham<br />

Drive, to the cancer centre office in<br />

Rangiora’sPercivalStreet, on an old<br />

mobility scooter whichbelonged to his late<br />

wife Helen,who died in <strong>August</strong> last year.<br />

‘‘For my 91st birthday Ibought myself a<br />

It was alike ahedgehog in her life, avery<br />

pricklysubject.’’<br />

Helen worriedabout Ron driving<br />

around in an old, possibly unreliable, car.<br />

He didn’t like her worrying abouthim,so<br />

his 1964Wolseley 16/60had to go.<br />

DespiteRon’seyesight and mobility<br />

Local Democracy Reporter<br />

Kaiapoi residents will get the<br />

chance to walk and talknext<br />

After the successofaMatariki<br />

story walk in Rangiora, the<br />

Waimakariri DistrictCouncil is<br />

going to create anew story walkin<br />

Kaiapoi’s Te Korotuaheka Reserve<br />

(Honda Forest).<br />

TheKaiapoi­Tuahiwi<br />

Community Board last week<br />

approvedthe story walk,which<br />

will be launched to coincidewith<br />

Te WikioTeReo (MāoriLanguage<br />

Week).<br />

Theproject is acollaboration<br />

betweenWaimakariri Libraries<br />

andthe council’s greenspaceteam.<br />

‘‘Astorywalk is mainly aimedat<br />

young children,’’ greenspace<br />

design and planning teamleader<br />

Grant Stephens said at last week’s<br />

meeting.<br />

‘‘Families go along and read the<br />

story together and theRangiora<br />

onehas beenincredibly successful<br />

and it getspeoplereading and into<br />

explored new ways of connecting<br />

Dog lovers<br />

support SPCA<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

Anew campaign by the<br />

Society for thePrevention of<br />

CrueltytoAnimals (SPCA)<br />

has support from<strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> dog lovers.<br />

The campaign is asking<br />

for publicsupport to change<br />

the law thatallows longtermtetheringand<br />

confinement of dogs in New<br />

Zealand.<br />

So farmore than19,000<br />

supporters, includingthe<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> Kennel<br />

Association, have answered<br />

thatcall.<br />

The secretary of the<br />

association,Karen<br />

McIntyre,says its members<br />

‘‘certainly support’’ the<br />

campaign.<br />

‘‘Dogs that are kept under<br />

suchconditionswould<br />

sufferwelfareand mental<br />

distress andwesupportthe<br />

proposed introduction of a<br />

penaltyfor such<br />

mistreatment,’’ she says.<br />

‘‘Howeverwedofirmly<br />

believe thateducation prior<br />

to dog ownershipisone of<br />

the key principles that<br />

shouldbeembraced. The<br />

AnimalWelfare Act's Code<br />

of Welfare is an excellent<br />

guide forowners and it<br />

shouldbeusedin<br />

conjunction with alicensing<br />

scheme forowners –not just<br />

their dogs.’’<br />

The SPCA’schief<br />

executiveAndrea Midgen<br />

saysevery year ‘‘we are<br />

heartbroken’’ by the<br />

hundreds of dogswesee<br />

spending their lives on<br />

‘‘Thisiswhy we are asking<br />

the Government to change<br />

the law right nowasthe<br />

unacceptable.’’<br />

SPCA’snational<br />

sparks keen interest<br />

Isat on the ThreeWatersselect<br />

committeeinChristchurch recently,<br />

where we heard fromanumber of<br />

submitterswho oppose the<br />

Governments asset grab and the<br />

undemocraticprocesses behindit.<br />

This legislation has sparkedkeen<br />

publicinterest, and clear opposition,<br />

in Waimakaririwith 95% of<br />

respondentstoalocalcouncil survey<br />

stating they want to opt out.<br />

Close to 4000residents responded<br />

in just three weeks, which shows the<br />

degreeoflocal engagement in this<br />

issue.<br />

It is vital that the Government hears<br />

the views of regionalNew<br />

Zealanders, which is why Iwrote to<br />

the chair of the finance and<br />

expenditure selectcommittee asking<br />

that the parliamentarycommittee<br />

spend morethan its planned four<br />

days getting aroundtohear New<br />

As part of that requestIaskedthat<br />

the committee come to the<br />

Speed limits hit snag<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

New speed limits in the Waimakariri<br />

District have hit aspeed bump.<br />

They have had no legal standing for<br />

eight months —from September 2021 to<br />

May <strong>2022</strong> —and anyone issued a<br />

speeding ticket in that time can expect<br />

to see arefund.<br />

The problem has been the timing of<br />

local and national rule changes, and the<br />

council has put its hand up about the<br />

error that has caused.<br />

Speed limits were lowered in the<br />

district last year after consultation.<br />

However, it now appears some of the<br />

new speed limits were not legally<br />

enforceable due to the relevant council<br />

bylaw ­the Speed Limit Bylaw 2017 —<br />

lapsing in September 2021, combined<br />

with adelay in the adoption of anew<br />

national register, which finally took<br />

place in May <strong>2022</strong>.<br />

Council chief executive Jeff Millward<br />

says this means there may be some<br />

motorists who are eligible for arefund of<br />

speeding tickets issued during this<br />

period.<br />

‘‘It’s an honest mistake that we wanted<br />

to be up front about and acknowledge.<br />

‘‘Since realising this error, we’ve<br />

adopted the Speed Limits Bylaw <strong>2022</strong>,<br />

which has resolved this legal anomaly.<br />

‘‘Waimakariri District has been<br />

working closely with Police to identify<br />

the infringements impacted by this<br />

error,’’ Mr Millward says.<br />

‘‘Police enforcement action was done<br />

in good faith, and the council apologises<br />

for any inconvenience caused.’’<br />

Police will contact affected drivers<br />

advising them of the cancellation of<br />

their infringement notice as well as any<br />

associated demerit points.<br />

If an infringement fee has been paid,<br />

Police will refund the payment.<br />

If the notice was referred to the Court<br />

as an unpaid fine, Police will be<br />

contacting the Court to have the matter<br />

withdrawn.<br />

Apassion for vintage fashion<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Opener beckons for Tri Rugby<br />

By JOHN COSGROVE<br />

Miss Audrey Agnes, aka, LucyAnderson,<br />

loves classicmuscle cars and the pin­up<br />

style.<br />

Her passion for bothhave led her to<br />

being named as atop 10 finalist for New<br />

Zealand’s newestinternational pageant,<br />

Miss VintageAustralasia (MVA).<br />

MVA is about empoweringwomen, of<br />

all shapes and sizes,tobethemselves and<br />

embrace their love of the vintage era.<br />

The young Woodend mum is proud to<br />

be apart of the era,enjoying the freedom<br />

to dress up, feel comfortableand stylish.<br />

The prestigious event is part of Vintage<br />

Fest NZ being held at the Lincoln Event<br />

CentreonSeptember24.<br />

Lucy takes alot of inspiration from her<br />

great­grandmother, taking her middle<br />

name Agnes,asher pin­up name, and<br />

using the inspiration from her wardrobe<br />

of old captured in photos, to fashion her<br />

own outfits.While Lucy doesn’tsew she<br />

has favourite websites fromwhich she<br />

buys her clothes.<br />

At the Vintage Fest there is three<br />

sections —daywear, summerwear and<br />

formalwear. Lucy already has her outfits<br />

tuckedaway ready for the big day.<br />

Lucy has battled with her health for a<br />

long time, and says she wantstoprove<br />

that people with disabilities —both seen<br />

and invisible —, can ‘‘chase their dreams<br />

and be who they truly are’’, even if their<br />

methods are somewhat unorthodox.<br />

Lucy loves the vintage era becauseof<br />

its sense of community,and the massive<br />

part in playsinthe New Zealandpin­up<br />

scene.<br />

‘‘It'slike awhole other family to love.<br />

‘‘I want to inspire other women to get<br />

involved and give pageants ago,’’she<br />

says.<br />

Lucy’staste for all thingsvintage<br />

started when she was invited to apin­up<br />

event.<br />

‘‘I fell in love with it. And that was the<br />

Finalist ... Miss Audrey Agnes, aka, Lucy<br />

Anderson.<br />

PHOTO: SUPPLIED<br />

startofthe whole thing for me,’’ she says.<br />

Her love for muscle cars stems from<br />

beingtaught all about them by her<br />

brothers, and she dreams to own one oneday.<br />

Whilethe pageant will be her first<br />

international event,she is no strangerto<br />

the stage.<br />

Her firstpageant was at the Kaikoura<br />

Hop whereshe won the MissKaikoura<br />

players with disabilities<br />

‘‘Secondly each Tri<br />

Ruby’sChoice hits<br />

bigscreens in NZ<br />

Ruby’s Choice,aground breaking film<br />

in which dementia takescentre stage,<br />

has finally hit the big screen in New<br />

Zealand.<br />

And Amberley’s Adriel House and<br />

Rest Home has asnippetinthe movie.<br />

StarringJane Seymour OBE, the<br />

film explores the humanising story of<br />

agrandmother dealingwith<br />

dementia, and whosefamily rediscover<br />

the value of her presence in<br />

their lives.<br />

Adriel’s owner Mischeal<br />

McCormick says the home recently<br />

booked atheatre in Rangiora for staff<br />

and family of residents to see the film.<br />

It was followedbyaquestion and<br />

answer session.<br />

‘‘We can learn alot of lessons from<br />

Ruby,’’ she says.<br />

‘‘It is (the film) quite educational<br />

and moving. And we can learn alot<br />

about listening to our residents, and<br />

about what not to do.’’<br />

‘‘Ruby’sChoice helps give people a<br />

better appreciationofpeople with<br />

memory loss, and about<br />

communicating with them,’’ says<br />

Mischeal.<br />

The movie arrives as Adriel<br />

celebrates Spark of Life month, by<br />

promotingthe programme which<br />

focuses on the quality of the<br />

connection between carers and<br />

residents, and their families.<br />

It also fosters kindness,<br />

compassion, empathy, and respect for<br />

supportive partners.<br />

Adriel is a Spark of Life centre of<br />

Excellence,and Mischeal says the<br />

programme is the home’s point of<br />

difference from other facilities<br />

providing dementia care.<br />

She says it can be ‘‘ tragic and<br />

tough’’ losing afamily member to<br />

dementia, but they are still there, and<br />

they have moments of clarity.<br />

Adriel does not use medication to<br />

reduce any challenging behaviour of<br />

residents as afirst call.<br />

Instead it fosters staff talking to the<br />

residents, getting to know them,<br />

listeningtothem and responding in a<br />

kind way to reduce challenging<br />

behaviour.<br />

Mischeal says time is spent with<br />

staff as ateam helping them to care<br />

for residents, and also at the end of<br />

<strong>August</strong> atraining session will be held<br />

for staff, concentrating on their<br />

wellbeing.<br />

Arecent winter warmer function at<br />

the home, with family and relatives<br />

joining in, was an enjoyable<br />

afternoonofsinging, and talking.<br />

‘‘The interaction of everyone was a<br />

real buzz,’’ says Mischeal.<br />

‘‘Spark of Life is about people, and<br />

What makesAmberley CountryEstateSoSpecial?<br />

The Layout of Amberley Country Estate is<br />

Very Different toMost Other Villages.<br />

Instead oflines of similar homes in arow, wehave awide range<br />

of villas, with each street set out inauniquely distinctive layout.<br />

Shared right ofways gives amore intimate feel, like living in a<br />

cul-de-sac. But, with rural-people inmind, some homes have<br />

private driveways and extra generously-sized yards.<br />

As well as meaning the Village doesn’t feel like all the homes<br />

are the same, each yard isunique too. Streets are beautifully<br />

landscaped with attractive colourful plantings. Paths meander<br />

throughthe village and pocket-parks abound.<br />

This extra “visual amenity” gives your home more individuality<br />

and the streets more character, making the village feel more<br />

special and upmarket.<br />

So are our Spacious andLuxurious Energy EfficientVillas!<br />

Available from 94-182m 2, our stunning Architect-designed 2and 3Bedroom Villas combine the highest<br />

standards of style, comfort, security and energy efficiency: ducted central heating, thicker walls with more<br />

insulation and thermally-broken windows keep the cold outside and means power bills are low and you’re<br />

warm and comfortable year round. Less power use is better forthe planet too!<br />

Plus there’sSOmuchmore!<br />

To find out ALL the many reasons why Amberley CountryEstate<br />

should be your next move, visit our website orcall 0800 573 573<br />

today. You’ll be so glad you did!<br />

NC agency marks 20 years<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Local Democracy Reporter<br />

Enterprise <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> (ENC)<br />

is celebrating20years of supporting<br />

localbusiness.<br />

Launched in 2002 by the<br />

Waimakariri and Hurunui district<br />

councils, ENCwas established to<br />

promote economic development in<br />

the region.<br />

‘‘Right from theget­go, ENC has<br />

been all about supporting local,’’<br />

says chief executive Heather<br />

Warwick,who has beenwith the<br />

agency since 2003.<br />

‘‘We havestucktothis across the<br />

boardover the past two decades,<br />

supporting new and existing local<br />

businesseswith our economic<br />

development team.’’<br />

ENC alsosupports tourism in the<br />

Waimakariri district through Visit<br />

Waimakariri and more recently<br />

created the Made <strong>North</strong><strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

brandtosupport localfood and<br />

beverage producers.<br />

Mrs Warwicksaid the<br />

earthquakes and Covid­19 had kept<br />

the agency busy.<br />

The first of thequakes, in<br />

September2010, had asignificant<br />

impact on Kaiapoi withsome<br />

redevelopment workgoing today.<br />

‘‘Thepast20years have thrown a<br />

significantnumber of challenges<br />

our way,’’ she said. ‘‘So many of our<br />

localbusinesses needed support to<br />

rebuild and recover (from the2010<br />

quake), which was of course<br />

followed by aftershocks and more<br />

majorearthquakes in 2011and then<br />

againin2016.’’<br />

By partnering withthe Ministry of<br />

Social Development, ENC was able<br />

to assist hundreds of businesses<br />

affected by the earthquakes with<br />

Facing challenges<br />

By DAVIDHILL<br />

Local Democracy Reporter<br />

The Hurunui District<br />

Council is financiallysound,<br />

despite the challenges it<br />

faces, says chief executive<br />

Hamish Dobbie.<br />

In his pre­election report<br />

ahead of this year’s local<br />

government elections, Mr<br />

Dobbie saidthe districthas<br />

faced drought,the 2016<br />

earthquake, central<br />

government legislationand<br />

Covid­19 over the last<br />

decade.<br />

‘‘The Hurunui districthas<br />

had numerous challenges in<br />

terms of the November 2016<br />

earthquakes, the effectsof<br />

drought and the potential<br />

downturn in tourism<br />

resultingfrom the Covid­19<br />

pandemic.<br />

‘‘Changes in legislative<br />

compliancehave resulted in<br />

additionalcosts including<br />

significant upgrades to the<br />

treatmentofwater to ensure<br />

compliancewith drinking<br />

water standards.’’<br />

All of these factorswere<br />

taken into consideration<br />

whendeveloping the 2021/31<br />

LongTerm Plan lastyear, Mr<br />

Dobbie said.<br />

He said the council’s<br />

financial strategy could be<br />

bestdescribed as ‘‘a triangle<br />

withcapitalexpenditure,<br />

rates and debt’’.<br />

Overthe next decade the<br />

council is expecting to spend<br />

$195million on capital<br />

expenditure ­the largest<br />

Hamish Dobbie<br />

capital programmeinthe<br />

council’s history.<br />

Mr Dobbie said the most<br />

significant issuefacing the<br />

council was in the three<br />

watersspace, with pending<br />

reforms and complying with<br />

the national drinking water<br />

standards.<br />

The councilbudgeted<br />

$18.2 million towards three<br />

watersinthe 2021/31Long<br />

Term Plan.<br />

‘‘The particularareas of<br />

expenditure are work<br />

relating to the provision of<br />

water –both in terms of<br />

quality and in terms of<br />

delivery –and in<br />

maintaining the roading<br />

network,’’ Mr Dobbie said.<br />

Other workinthe pipeline<br />

included footpathrenewals,<br />

AMANDA BOWES-DURAND<br />

For those interested in share markets and how to<br />

make serious wealth from them there’s avery interesting<br />

investment firm with a growing <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

presence. This is the New Zealand based, Australasian<br />

hedge fund start up, Chance Voight Investment Partners<br />

Limited (CVI Partners).<br />

Hedge funds, legendary across the world for their<br />

concentrated well-timed callsonthe sharemarketand the<br />

money they’vemadefor theirinvestorbaseweredescribed<br />

in arecentstudyas the‘smartmoney’inthe markets.<br />

Chance Voight has been established with aview to<br />

mining extraordinary profits from the Australian stock<br />

market and asBernard Whimp, the founder and CIO<br />

of Chance Voight, says‘We’ll bedeploying ourunique<br />

insightsand investment style with theaim of compounding<br />

investor capital at 20% per annum orbetter over multiple<br />

years’.<br />

Setting up CVI Partners in 2018 as aspecialist deep<br />

valuestock pickinginvestmentfirm,Bernard waslooking<br />

to capitalise on almost a decade of experience as a<br />

professional investor in companieslisted on theAustralian<br />

sharemarket(theASX).<br />

He concentrates on the ASX, as experience has shown<br />

him, that in this part of theworld that’s wheremany of the<br />

best share marketmoney-making opportunities are.<br />

So howdid CVI Partnerscomeabout?<br />

“Well,” Bernard says, “It’sreally about the sheer joyof<br />

doingwhat you love day andnight”.<br />

Adecadeago,Bernard wanted to test atheory.Hemade<br />

aquick fortune by making offers to buy shares directly<br />

from shareholders incompanies listed on the NZStock<br />

Exchange.<br />

At Christmas time in2010, he launched aseries of<br />

audaciousoff-marketofferswhich sawhim pick upaprofit<br />

of almost $4 million inamatter ofmonths, all kicked off<br />

with an initial$7,000investment. Daring to do something<br />

different made lots of money.<br />

To most people, the share market can be abewildering<br />

array of unfathomable numbers –Bernard sees itinfine<br />

granulardetail.<br />

The ASX, with its 2,000 companies, provides the<br />

opportunity to be incredibly selectivewhenbuyingshares.<br />

Most years, heisable toidentify ahandful ofterrific<br />

opportunities. The NZX incomparison has only about<br />

160listed companies.<br />

Theshare marketisessentially atreasure hunt, he says.<br />

“We’re really more like aprivate equity investment firm<br />

operating inlisted markets with all the advantages ofthe<br />

buy andsellability that listed marketsprovide butwithout<br />

the tortuous negotiations onpurchase that private equity<br />

requires.”<br />

CVI Partners Chief Investment Officer (CIO), Bernard Whimp<br />

The cornerstone of our investment view isthat we aim<br />

to never spend an investor dollar unless webelieve that<br />

we’regetting at leasttwo dollarsofvaluefor it.<br />

“Asafirm, wehunt for situations where wecan obtain<br />

substantial value for nothing, where we can buyastake<br />

in aworthwhile business that is worth alot more than the<br />

price weare paying.”<br />

As Bernard puts it, ‘guys like me don’t believe the<br />

passive index share investing that’s been popular over<br />

the last decade will continue todeliver good returns into<br />

the future and there’s now lots ofevidence emerging that<br />

this passive investment style that so many New Zealand<br />

investorsare involved with onewayor another,has ‘hit the<br />

wall’. We thinkthat ‘stock picking’ where you arelooking<br />

to hold a concentrated portfolio of winning situations<br />

with high probability to the upside maywell prove tobe<br />

asuperior share market investment strategy in the years<br />

ahead.<br />

He doesn’tratemostofwhat goes on around investment<br />

in the share market at all. “It’s essential in ahedge fund<br />

to establish anunconventional investment style. You’re<br />

not likely to make much money doing what everyone else<br />

does, asthe saying goes -you’ve got to be different, and<br />

you’vegot to be right!”<br />

We’re looking to deliver investors annualised returns<br />

at that 20% per annum mark. We’renot reinventing the<br />

wheel indoing this. These types ofreturns are typical<br />

of good Australian hedge fund operations, it’s just that<br />

you’ve probably never heard of them, and no one’s ever<br />

offered you accesstoone in New Zealand.<br />

Bernard isbuilding Chance Voight with an innovative<br />

structure where, besides managing money in the ASX<br />

for external investors, Chance Voight will have alot of<br />

‘proprietary capital’ (the firm’s own money) atwork. To<br />

this end the Chance Voight parent company intends to<br />

undertake an initialpublic offering (IPO)inafew months’<br />

time. This will give smaller investors an opportunity to<br />

back the firm’s concentrated stock picking investment<br />

style and learn quite alot about the share market atthe<br />

same time.‘We’llbetryingtoget many of ourinvestment<br />

insights across toourshareholders’,saysBernard.<br />

Christchurch lawyer, friend and fellow director, Paul<br />

Currie,has this to say about Bernard:<br />

“I have never met anyone who has the share market<br />

understanding and insights that Bernard does. He is very<br />

approachable and exceptionally interestingtotalkto.”<br />

Outside ofits ASX share market funds, Chance Voight<br />

is keenly aware that what’s important for many New<br />

Zealand investors today is regular cash flow and income<br />

to help pay thebills in theseinflationary times. Tothisend<br />

Chance Voight has itshigh yield mortgage fund available<br />

which paysinvestors regular interest at10% perannum.<br />

All investments in the fund are secured bymortgage<br />

over real estate and perhaps most importantly of all,<br />

the fund does not take on any property development<br />

risk, meaning that the fund does not lend on property<br />

development situations.<br />

As Bernard points out, “it’s lending onlower priority<br />

mortgages todevelopment projects that has caused so<br />

many historical problems for New Zealand investors over<br />

the years and the CVI Fund is designed not totake this<br />

type of risk on board”.<br />

Vickie sat on the fence for a few months before starting her journey on Phatt<br />

(Putting Health at the Top), a weight loss programme.<br />

She was scared she would fail.<br />

Vickie was already in a slump, and didn’t want to disappoint herself any more<br />

after other programmes had failed to help her maintain any weight loss.<br />

‘‘After watching a friend’s journey I decided, I at least needed to try,’’ she says.<br />

So 18 months ago Vickie began her journey on Phatt, a food plan with<br />

nutritional supplements.<br />

‘‘What a journey it has been,’’ she says.<br />

Vickie lost 27 kgs in six months, while her husband who joined her, lost 17kg in<br />

threemonths.<br />

‘‘And we have maintained that weight loss,’’ she says.<br />

But Vickie says theprogrammeisnotjust about losing weight.<br />

‘‘Phatt is a whole lifestyle change,’’ she says.<br />

Having a mentor to help her everyday, and to give her encouragement when she<br />

needed it, was great.<br />

‘‘I am now mentor, and I am able to help others achieve the results that I did.<br />

‘‘If you are watching from the side lines, now is the time to join us,’’ she says.<br />

Live Clean Products for the home and facial products, such as cleanser, toner<br />

Careers expo goes online<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Local Democracy Reporter<br />

An innovative approach is ensuring <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> youth have access to careers<br />

guidance, amid Covid­19 uncertainty.<br />

The <strong>North</strong><strong>Canterbury</strong> Youth Futures<br />

careers expo has gone online,<br />

WaimakaririDistrictCouncil community<br />

teammanager Tessa Sturleysaid at last<br />

week’s community and recreation<br />

meeting.<br />

The careers expo was firstheld in 2019,<br />

but has since been disruptedbyCovid­19,<br />

so the steering group made the decision<br />

earlier this year to go online.<br />

The steering group comprised<br />

representatives from the council’s<br />

community team,Rangiora and Kaiapoi<br />

highschools,the Ministry of Education,<br />

the Ministry of Social Development and<br />

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

While it was been at Rangiora High<br />

School in 2019 and 2021,the expo was<br />

opentoall <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> youth,or<br />

anyone considering achange of career.<br />

The development of an online presence<br />

has been led by WaimakaririDistrict<br />

Council youthdevelopment facilitator<br />

Emily Belton and JosephHoughton, from<br />

the Ministry of Education.<br />

To help guide the developmentof<br />

online tools,the steering group conducted<br />

focus groups withpupils at schoolsinthe<br />

Waimakaririand Hurunui districts.<br />

Responses varied depending on the age<br />

of students and whether they wererural<br />

Community strategy review<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Local Democracy Reporter<br />

Achanging environment has changed<br />

Waimakariri’s community priorities.<br />

The WaimakaririDistrict Council will<br />

reviewits community development<br />

strategy earlier thanexpecteddue to the<br />

challengesofCovid­19, climatechange<br />

Youth priorities discussed<br />

By DAVIDHILL<br />

Local Democracy Reporter<br />

The environment, making Dudley Park<br />

more family friendly, recognising youth<br />

achievements and ensuring ayouth voice<br />

are the priorities for Waimakariri’s young<br />

leaders.<br />

The Waimakariri Youth Council<br />

developed awork plan earlier this year to<br />

focusonsix key projects overthe next 18<br />

months.<br />

Speaking at last week’scommunity and<br />

recreationmeeting, Waimakariri District<br />

Council community team manager Tessa<br />

Sturley saidthe initiatives were all youth<br />

led.<br />

‘‘We are seeing an increased focuson<br />

citizenship; the Covid­19 epidemic has<br />

seen an increased focus on mental health<br />

and having that sense of belonging to a<br />

community is really important to them.’’<br />

Community and recreation committee<br />

chairperson Cr Niki Mealings said the<br />

youth council played an important role in<br />

the district.<br />

‘‘It’s about building up our young people<br />

to give them the skills, the space to grow<br />

and to developthat senseofbelonging,so<br />

they want to stay here or at least comeback<br />

when they’ve seenthe world.’’<br />

In areport prepared for the meeting,<br />

youthdevelopment facilitator Emily Belton<br />

said the environmentwas akey focusfor<br />

the youth council,supporting community<br />

events, building relationswith likeminded<br />

organisations and raisingawareness.<br />

By JOHN COSGROVE<br />

This year marks the 40th anniversaryof<br />

the IHC Calf &Rural Scheme, and for<br />

one <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong>dairy farm it also<br />

marks 40 years involvementwith it.<br />

The Wakelin brothers, Robbie and<br />

John, at Belbrook Holsteins at<br />

Springbank, are continuing the family<br />

traditionofparticipating in the<br />

scheme.<br />

Atradition startedbytheir late father<br />

Trevorright from the programme’s<br />

inception.<br />

Robbiesays theirfather began<br />

donating calves fromtheir 96 hectare<br />

dairy stud farmwhen the scheme<br />

started, and they havecontinued<br />

donating ever since.<br />

‘‘We have been associated with the<br />

IHC scheme sinceitstarted and dad<br />

alwaysdonated acalf every year.<br />

‘‘Since his passing we have been<br />

proud to continue with the scheme.’’<br />

‘‘We pick agood one out in June/July<br />

when it’s born, and it getsthe famous<br />

The IHC Calf &Rural Scheme<br />

sponsored by PGG Wrightson Livestock,<br />

grewout of humble beginnings.<br />

In 1982, Norm Cashmore in Taranaki<br />

cameupwith the ideaofasking dairy<br />

farmerstoraiseacalfand donate the<br />

proceedstoIHC whenitwas sold.<br />

To thank them theywere givenapair<br />

of gumboots.<br />

Asimple idea but one farmersquickly<br />

supported.<br />

Normwas soon joined by Mick<br />

Murphy in Blenheim and the Calf &<br />

Rural Scheme went national.<br />

The late Sir Colin Meads was<br />

approached to help promotethe<br />

scheme.<br />

He said he wouldgive it two years but<br />

ultimately becamealifelong supporter<br />

andPatron of the scheme.<br />

Whenfarms got bigger, Sir Colin<br />

asked farmers to donate more than one<br />

calf. He soldraffle ticketsand donated<br />

the money he got from speaking<br />

engagements to the scheme.<br />

He later donated Pinetree Farmso<br />

thatpeople with intellectual<br />

disabilities couldbesupportedtolive<br />

and work on afarm.<br />

Farmers have helped raise more than<br />

$40 million over the past 40 years with<br />

over10,000 farmersdonatingduring<br />

thistime,inanenormous show of<br />

support from the farming community<br />

for people withintellectual<br />

disabilities.<br />

Do you have a<br />

service, trade or<br />

product that our<br />

farmers need?<br />

Poles helping to reduce erosion<br />

Around8000 poplarand willowpoles will<br />

be deliveredtomore than 100 <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> farms thisyear as partof<br />

Environment <strong>Canterbury</strong>’s(ECan)Soil<br />

Conservation and Revegetation (SCAR)<br />

Programme.<br />

The four­year programme, whichiscofundedbyECan<br />

andthe Ministry for<br />

Primary Industries (MPI), aims to reduce<br />

erosion and sediment loss, and stabilise<br />

damaged land in <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong>’s hillcountry.<br />

Farmers taking part in the programme<br />

are abletodecrease the amount of<br />

sediment washedinto waterways, which<br />

will deliver long­term environmental<br />

benefits such as betterwater quality.<br />

They do this by planting poplarand<br />

willowpoles, retiring erosion proneland<br />

and identifying erosion­proneland with<br />

land use capability maps.<br />

The programme is in its third year and<br />

demandfor poles has been increasing<br />

steadily.<br />

ECan Hurunui Waiau land management<br />

and biodiversity advisor AndrewTurnbull<br />

said support for the programme from<br />

farmers and the community was<br />

continuing to grow.<br />

‘‘A major success of the programme is<br />

Planting ... Sam Thompson planting a<br />

poplar pole on a<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> farm.<br />

PHOTO:ENVIRONMENTCANTERBURY.<br />

being able to connect farmerswith<br />

different expertise within ECan. We’re<br />

enablingthem to seek awide range of<br />

advice and in some cases otherfunding<br />

opportunities to do workonfarm or in a<br />

catchment that benefits the environment<br />

and the wider community.’’<br />

Arecentpole planting workshopwas<br />

heldinJuly at the Hoban family’s<br />

Glenafric Farm in Hurunui to<br />

demonstratehow to plant poplarand<br />

willow poles. ECan staff showedfarmers<br />

how and wheretoplant the three­metre<br />

polestoincrease success of reducing<br />

erosion on asteep sloped paddock.<br />

The workshop was led by Mr Turnbull<br />

and Sam Thompson, who is also aland<br />

managementand biodiversityadvisor. Mr<br />

Turnbullsaid the workshopishelpful to<br />

thosewho haven’t planted apoplar pole<br />

before and those wanting to upskill to<br />

improve thesurvival rateofthe poles.<br />

‘‘There are alot of benefitsinplanting<br />

poplar and willow poles on erosion prone<br />

hill country,’’ he said. ‘‘The main one is<br />

simply, thattheir root systems grow<br />

quickly, hold the soil on the hill and<br />

prevent mass movement from occurring<br />

during large scale weather events.<br />

‘‘Thepoles come with a1.7 metresleeve,<br />

this allows stock to grazethe areaafter<br />

beingrestrictedfor only one to two years,<br />

allowingland to continuebeing productive<br />

within theirfarm system.’’<br />

Farmers are advisedtoleave 12 to<br />

15­metres between soil conservation poles<br />

when planting,aswhen the trees reach<br />

maturity the roots will interlockstabilising<br />

the areainbetween the treeswithout<br />

compromising pasture growth.<br />

By LINDSAY KERR<br />

The <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong>rugbysenior side<br />

climbed another step on its seasonal<br />

ladder with an emphatic31­14victory over<br />

aCantabriansunder23selection on<br />

Saturday.<br />

Played in ideal conditions on an<br />

excellent playing surface at Woodend, the<br />

<strong>North</strong><strong>Canterbury</strong> forward pack laid the<br />

platform for its win.<br />

The deeperthe game went, themore<br />

dominant they became. While the tight five<br />

gained superiority at scrum time, the loose<br />

trio of JoshMaynard, Dan Brookerand<br />

Andrew Hull wonthe clashatthe<br />

breakdown. The backs ran with<br />

confidence as play revolved around<br />

second fiveeightMike Keane, who<br />

producedanother top performance.<br />

With the game servingasthe final hit out<br />

before the annualclashagainst Ellesmere<br />

this Saturday, head coachesMatt Keane<br />

and James Lowe were delighted with their<br />

charges effort, but both tried to down play<br />

the quality of the effort.<br />

‘‘It was certainly another step up from<br />

last week100 percent. We can take alot<br />

from today, but there is alot of work to do<br />

this week still,’’said Keane.<br />

It was the Cantabrians that scored first<br />

afteronly fiveminutes, but <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> respondedfrom the kickoff<br />

when Brooker burst through agap 15<br />

metres out to score.<br />

Play then sea­sawed until fiveminutes<br />

from half timewhen tigerish Ashley prop,<br />

Josh Duckworth, crashed over to score<br />

from aline out near the Cantabrians line.<br />

Brooker was again over the line before<br />

the break but lost the ball. Two minutes<br />

The <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong>Coltshad a<br />

disappointing final build up before its<br />

annual clash against their Ellesmere<br />

counterparts, goingdown 34­12 to a<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> Pacifica XV.<br />

Also played at Woodend, <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> competedoneven terms for<br />

much of the first half, but when the game<br />

was called to ahalt,following aserious<br />

injury to one of their players, all<br />

momentumwas lost. Facingthe second40<br />

minutes down 7­10, it was the visitors that<br />

took control of the game to run out<br />

convincing winners. <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

Goinginto half time <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong>was<br />

Cabinet Art for the District<br />

Cabinet art is coming to Waimakariri and now is<br />

the time for artists to get designing.<br />

Mayor Dan Gordon says he has been keen to get<br />

Waimakariri involved for some time and is really<br />

pleased this has finally happened.<br />

“I am apassionate supporter of the arts and we<br />

know that vibrant artwork makes our towns. This<br />

is afantastic opportunity for local artists toget<br />

involved and showcase their work which can only<br />

be positive for our district,” says Dan.<br />

Four cabinets, two inRangiora and one each<br />

in Woodend and Kaiapoi, have been chosen for<br />

beautification and artists are encouraged toget<br />

their designs in before Wednesday 31<strong>August</strong>.<br />

Chorus Community Relations Manager Jo Seddon<br />

says that it makes sense topartner with local<br />

councils, as they have the same goal in mind to<br />

discourage graffiti vandalism.<br />

“It is great to work with local councils when it<br />

comes to choosing cabinets and designs asthey<br />

know what their community needs,” Jo says.<br />

“Waimakariri District Council has nominated four<br />

cabinets and we’re really looking forward toseeing<br />

what local artists have inmind.”<br />

These cabinets become works of art, oen telling<br />

stories about the communities in which they are<br />

located, and help to discourage tagging.<br />

The Waimakariri Public Arts Trust will be coordinating<br />

designs and artists and Chairperson<br />

Jackie Watson says she is really looking forward to<br />

seeing what designs local artists come up with.<br />

“The project is agreat opportunity for our<br />

community. Not only do we get fantastic artwork<br />

in our streetscape, but also it provides work for<br />

and promotion of our local artists," says Jackie.<br />

Requests for designs are now open and the<br />

winning design for each cabinet will be chosen<br />

from entries received.<br />

All finished art will be included on the Chorus<br />

website and will be considered for the 2023<br />

Chorus Cabinet Art calendar, copies of which are<br />

sent around the world.<br />

Timing Issue for Speed Limit Bylaw Change<br />

Several recently changed speed limits in the<br />

Waimakariri District have been identified possibly<br />

as not enforceable due to atiming issue between<br />

local and national rules changing.<br />

The Council engaged with residents last year about<br />

lowering speed limits in and around the District.<br />

Changes to speeds were widely supported.<br />

However, some of the new speed limits were not<br />

legally enforceable due to the relevant Council<br />

bylaw (the Speed Limit Bylaw 2017) lapsing in<br />

September 2021 and adelay in the adoption of a<br />

new national register until May <strong>2022</strong>.<br />

Council Chief Executive Jeff Millward says this<br />

means there may be some motorists who are<br />

eligible for arefund of speeding tickets issued<br />

during this period.<br />

“It’s anhonest mistake that wewanted to be up<br />

front about and acknowledge. Since realising this<br />

error, we’ve adopted the Speed Limits Bylaw <strong>2022</strong>,<br />

which has resolved this legal anomaly.<br />

“The Council has been working closely with Police<br />

to identify the infringements impacted bythis<br />

error. Police enforcement action was done in<br />

good faith, and the Council apologises for any<br />

inconvenience caused.”<br />

Police will contact affected drivers advising them<br />

of the cancellation of their infringement notice as<br />

well as any associated demerit points.<br />

If an infringement fee has been paid, Police<br />

will refund the payment. Likewise, ifthe notice<br />

was referred tothe Court as an unpaid fine,<br />

Police will be contacting the Court to have the<br />

matter withdrawn.<br />
