Production line to

close at Sefton

fibreboard factory

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The two plumes of steam rising

fromstacks at the Daiken New

Zealand’s mediumdensity

fibreboard (MDF)production

facility at Sefton,willsoon become

one.

AproductionlineatDaikenNew

Zealand’s mediumdensity

fibreboard (MDF)production

facility at Sefton,North Canterbury,

willcloseatthe endofthe month.

The decision to retire theline,

which has beeninproductionsince

the factoryopened in 1975,follows

Daiken announcingarestructure in

May.

Closing the line whichhas

become difficulttomaintaindue to

its age, comeswiththe loss of 40

jobs. Nearlyall effected have

alreadyleft the business through

attrition.

Asecond linewillcontinueto

operate, in conjunctionwith

Daiken’s sisterplantinSouthland.

While thelinebeing retired still

produces the ‘‘best MDF’’ in the

world, which is prized in Japan,

Daiken’s key customer,ithas failed

to makeaprofitfor some years.

Human resourcesmanager

Vanessa Croft says whilethere is

demandfor the productfrom the

line —knowninthe industryas

thick panel —other factories

worldwideare able to use more

sophisticated machinery and

technology, making themmore

responsive to the market, and with a

wider array of technical

specifications.

‘‘I guess asimple analogy would

be with photography–our lineis

theequivalentofusingfilmand a

darkroomversus digital.

‘‘The quality is still exceptional,

but inputcosts, freight and other

constraintsmakeitnoncompetitive,’’

she says.

It was therefore ‘‘reluctantly’’

agreed to retirethe line.

‘‘ As a24/7,365 operation, it is a

significantday whenaproduction

linethathas been runningfor

almost 50 years, must be turned off

onceand forall.

‘‘Wehave maintenance engineers

who havespecialised in keeping it

runningfor decades.

‘‘Weare allverysorrythishas had

to happen,and that we’ve alsohad

to say goodbye to 40 valued

workers,’’ saysMsCroft.

Almost all those affected by the

closure of theline,haveleftthe

companyfor other jobs.

The shut downhas also meant a

reductioninits support teams, such

as mechanics, electricians,sales

and technicalstaff.

The second line, whichwas

installedinthe 1990’s, makes a

clean, thinpanelwhichhas awide

variety of applicationsand

competes wellinAsia.

Ms Croft saysDaikenismaking a

lot of headway in broadeningits

markets.

‘‘Our amazing engineersand

techniciansare applying allkinds of

innovationstocoaxproductivityout

of Line2that willsupplement the

closure of Line 1, so theintent is

thatwe’llcontinuetorun 24/7, 365

daysofthe year.

At itspeak, Daiken —previously

Steam plumes alocal landmark

From Page 1

The original Customwood produced in

the factory was world class, because it

was made from locally grown, whole log

Radiata pine, which provides asuperior

finish.

According to The Leading Edge by

Piers Maclaren: The Originating History

of MDF in New Zealand, Radiata pine

has features and characteristics that

results in anaturally made premium

product, highly prized internationally as

awall and flooring product. The product

was also renowned for innovations

developed at the Ashley factory that

made Customwood exclusively, a

premium for many decades.

The plant was officially opened by

Robert Muldoon in May 1977. At the time

it was North Canterbury’s largest single

employer and was the largest industrial

development in the South Island since

Tiwai. Its two plumes of steam quickly

became afamiliar landmark for many

travellers in North Canterbury, even

from the air.

At the time it had over two thousand

shareholders.

When the first board was made, there

were only 42 employees, now known as

the ‘originals’ and the ‘first pioneers’.

Ms Croft says there is still one on its

books from the well­known Lochhead

family in Sefton.

By all accounts, the originals were

very productive despite the low

headcount, simply because everybody

got involved. The charismatic leaders

such as Murray Sturgeon, ‘Doc’ Haylock

and Tony MacGibbon chose to have their

offices at the plant to be close to the

action, dressed in overalls, and ‘mucked

in’ when necessary.

Staff were paid 10 percent above

standard Union rates and paid good

overtime.

But probably more importantly, they

felt like family, and spent alot of time

socialising as well as working together.

planning,regulationand

environment managerTracy

Tierney.

She was responding to last week’s

announcement by Environment

Minister David Parker of proposed

legislation to replace the Resource

ManagementAct.

The Natural and Built

Environments and Spatial Planning

Billswere introduced to Parliament

last week,while athird piece of

legislation, the Climate Adaptation

Bill,isdue to be announced next

year.

Amongthe proposedchanges is the

scrappingof100 district and regional

plansand regional policy

statements, which would be replaced

by 15 regionalplans.

‘‘There is alot to unpacktofully

understand the implicationsofthis

legislation, but on face value it is

hardtoargue withplans to simplify

planning in away that results in

better environmental outcomes,’’ Ms

Tierneysays.

She believes aregionalapproach

willbesupported in Canterbury.

Before joining theWaimakariri

District Council last year,Ms

Tierneywas acouncillor and then

environmentalservices manager at

the Timaru District Council.

The Greater Christchurch

partners, Christchurch, Selwyn,

‘‘The council will take sometime to

formaview on these bills and will be

consultation opens,’’ Ms Tierney

says.

‘‘The long transition period may

seemexcessive to some, but

hopefullythis helps ensurethe

legislation when operational

delivers on its intent.’’

In the meantime, the Waimakariri

District Council willcontinue to

work with its District Plan Review

Move to NZ highlight of long life

By SHELLEY TOPP

Franz van derVelden

immigratedtoNew Zealand

from the Netherlands in 1968

and has never returned to his

denselypopulated homeland.

Franz, who turned 100 on

Thursday last week,visited

New Zealand in 1963 withhis

wife Maria on their

honeymoon.

The couple fell in lovewith

New Zealand’s‘‘wide­open

spaces,beautiful scenery and

friendly people’’,and in 1968

made the decision to

immigrate heredespite

neitherofthem speaking

Englishatthe time.

It is adecision neither has

regretted.

Franz says moving to

Christchurch,beingable to buy

ahome there and finding longterm

employmentinthe city

have been highlights in his life.

His marriage to Maria tops

that listofhighlightswith the

birth of the couple's children,

Alexander and Petra and their

children,Brianna and Willem,

next.

Franz was borninMeerwijk

castle,the family homein

Empel, 's­Hertogenbosch,

(colloquially known as Den

Bosch),onNovember18, 1922.

His grandfather was a

wealthyland owner and coal

merchant during atime when

coal was apremiumfuel.

Franz’s father Nico,who was

the only person in the area who

had adriver'slicence,

transported coalfor the family

business, the StoneCoal

Company.

Franz was educatedin

's­Hertogenbosch, attending

primary and secondary school

there before studying at the

Maritime Academy in

Rotterdam.

During World War II Franz

Franz van der Velden

worked at homehelping his

family withharvesting on their

farm.

At one point during the war

his family was forced to leave

theirMeerwijkhome and seek

refuge in the nearby

countryside for several weeks

wherethey livedonpotatoes

growing on the landand used

hay bales for shelter.

It was adifficulttime for the

family butreturninghome to

Meerwijk after the war finding

theirfamilyhomehad been

severelydamaged and looted

was alsoalow point.

At the end of the war Franz

worked for several months as a

telegraphist at the Post Office

before joining KLM Airlines

where he stayed for 20 years,

first as atelegraphist and then

joiningthe groundcrew.

When Franz and Maria

moved to Christchurch with his

mother Elizabeth,they joined

his brother Henk van der

Velden and sister­in­lawTony

who had immigrated to New

Zealandin1952. Frank initially

worked as aharvester and a

painterbefore being offered a

job at the Sunshine Bread

factoryinMarshland, where he

remained for 22 years untilhis

retirement at 65.

The couple stayed in

Christchurch for 47 years in

the samehome, beforemoving

to Rangiora four years ago to

be closer to Petra. During their

marriage Franz has puthis

significant carpentry and

handymanskills to gooduse.

Petrasays her father was

always ‘‘pottering aroundin

his garage’’ building furniture

for the home such as cabinets,

wardrobes and beds, but also

otherthingslike dolls houses

and rabbitcages.

He took up stained­glass

leadlighting for severalyears,

has also been akeen fisherman

and is atalented musician.

‘‘He is very musical and

played several instruments,

including his favourites,the

pianoand the accordion but he

also played the clarinet and

saxophone,’’ Petra says.

‘‘There wasn'taday that went

past thathecouldn't be heard

tinklingthe ivories or playing

the accordion.’’

Franzhas passedhis love of

musicontoPetra, whoisa

musicteacherinRangiora.

‘‘When he visits my place, he

will still play on my piano,’’she

says.

Although Franz was ableto

drivehis car up untilthe

middle of last yearheis

disappointed that hisfailing

eyesight nowprevents him

from doingthat.

Franzhas seen many

changes in his long life. The

introduction of electric

lighting, compared to the

petroleumlamps used when he

was growing up, is one of the

most significant changes,he

says.

‘‘Theintroduction of

technology, air travel

becoming so easily and widely

accessible to all,the wide use

and ownership of motor

vehicles and the advances in

medicine, have been others.’’

River access

By DAVID HILL,

Local Democracy Reporter

Environment Canterbury

(ECan) plans to make a

section of the Ashley

Rakahuri River more

accessible.

Adraft masterplan is

being developed for the

Rangiora Reach riverside

area following feedback

from the community.

Key stakeholders

including NgāiTūāhuriri,

the Ashley Rakahuri

Rivercare Group and the

Waimakariri District

Council have all

contributed.

ECan’s braided river

revival regional lead, Greg

Stanley, says the draft

masterplan will help to

revive recreation,

biodiversity and flood

protection.

‘‘We understand how

much the community

values this area, so we are

working with them to make

sure their voice is heard.

Population growth has

led to new forms of

recreation being

developed, placing

pressure on the river and

its ecology, he says.

The masterplan covers

the area from Dunlops

Road to Beatties Road on

the north bank near Ashley,

and Merton Road to Smarts

Road on the south bank

near Rangiora.

Feedback from the

community includes

designing aCones Road

area car park to improve

access and increase

amenities such as rubbish

bins and toilets.

Improved trail network

maps, shared trail signage

and other directional

panels have been included,

along with different grades

of greystone chip to show

different uses for trails

across the network.

Specific four­wheel­drive

access on the northern side

of the river has been

identified.

The masterplan balances

planting and flood

management, by using

native planting which will

fold over in aflood and not

hinder flow capacity.

ECan staff are also

looking at ways the river

can be widened without

compromising flood and

erosion protection.

Options include targeted

extraction of vegetated

berm and potential retreat

of forestry blocks from the

river's edge after

harvesting.

Kayaking will be included for the first

time in the annual Oxman multi­sport

event in Eyrewell, near Oxford.

The event this Sunday, November 27,

is along­course triathlon incorporating

arange of race options to suit athletes of

all ages and abilities, event director

John Newsom says.

‘‘As well as our long­course triathlon/

duathlon/aquabike (swim/bike) we have

amini OxMan, ajunior OxMan for 10­16

year olds, akids duathlon for 5­9 year

olds and run­only options over 21km and

7km distances for teams and

individuals.’’

Kayaking, which is limited to 25

competitors, will provide yet another

option and can also be done by

individuals or teams.

It is being trialled but the hope is, it

will provide agood training option for

people preparing for the Coast­to­Coast

multi­sport challenge from Kumara to

Christchurch on February 11 next year.

OxMan has been held annually at

Geoff and Rochelle Spark’s dairy farm

on South Eyre Rd, since 2019.

It has previously been held during the

second weekend of December, but this

year it is on two weeks earlier to avoid a

clash with December 10’s Iron Man New

Zealand which was postponed earlier

this year because of the Covid­19

pandemic.

Entries are slightly down on previous

years and John says this could be due to

John Newsom

‘‘Covid concerns, the credit crunch and

so many other events going on.’’

However, it is once again receiving a

lot of support from the North Canterbury

community.

Oxford Lions are helping out with a

food truck on the day, and local schools

will be doing marshalling work.

Although some of the big name

national athletes will not be competing

at OxMan this year ‘‘all the local elite

athletes will be there’’, John says.

Farmstrong, aprogramme launched in

2015 to help farmers, growers and their

families, will benefit from this Sunday’s

OxMan with asmall part of the entry fees

going towards the scheme.

By JOHN COSGROVE

EveryWednesdayeveningfor acoupleof

hoursfrom 6pm, Mike Dyndul opens the

Waimakariri Bike Project (WBP) doorsat

the back of the Dudley Pool complex,and

is inundated by people seeking his help.

‘‘TheWBP is alocal community

initiativeaimedathelping people get out

riding again,’’ he says.

‘‘Basicallywerecycleold pre­loved

bikes, donate them to peoplewho need

them and also helpothers fix theirbikes so

they can keep riding safely.’’

Mike,the project co­ordinator, saysmost

nights they are busyasthere are always

people coming downtohelp out, help

others, donateold bikes,find abike or just

learnhow to fix theirbikes.

‘‘Last week, ablokecame down and

askedusfor abike as he neededone to

help him getajob, we wereonly too

pleased to help with abike and get him set

up, especially when we learned he had

walked eight kilometres to get to us.’’

The project tries to supplyanyonewho

needsabike.

‘‘They are freewithnostringsattached

and no questions asked.Wealso gladly

take in any old bikes peoplehave lying

around and have no further use for

because they're eitherbroken, or the kids

have growntoo big forthem.

‘‘We thentidy them up if we can and pass

them on for others to use,’’hesaid.

At the recent Big Day Out event in

replace them as the demand is still there,’’

Mike said.

Mike, who works locally as acycle safety

trainer for schools, joined the project a

month after it started ayear ago as a

collaboration between many community

groupsand the Waimakariri District

Council.

The idea for acommunity­basedcycle

project originatedfrom theGovernment’s

MentalHealth WorkingGroup report,

which identified repairing bikes as away

of teaching young people new skills,

improvingconfidence and giving theman

affordable mode of transport. Mike saysit

also reduces waste by ‘‘taking bikes from

landfill and givingthemanotherlife’’.

He said all the spare parts they use

eithercome from parts stripped off

unusable bikesordonations fromthe ‘very

generous’ cycle shops in Rangiora.

‘‘They've helpedusout immensely, we

are very gratefulfor their support.

‘‘Whenweget abike, it’s assessed on its

repairability.

‘‘If it’s good, thenwehave many

volunteershere who will work to fix it up

and pass it on. If it isn’tusable, we

carefully removewhat sparepartswecan

reuse and recycle the rest.

‘‘Thisgivesusthe stockofspare partswe

need to keep all the other older model

Mixing up renewable energy at bakery

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Rangiora Bakery is operating on 100%

renewable energy after 820 solar panels

were installed on the roof of its central

Rangiora premises.

The panelsare providing 25% of its

energyneeds, whilethe remaining 75% is

being sourced in partnershipwith

MainPower, from the KakarikiPower

Scheme—asmall hydro dam near Mt

Hutt.

The project, completed in September,

is one of the largest ever under taken by

Christchurch­basedFreshStart

Electrical.

Rangiora Bakery owner Ron van Til

says he is always looking for

opportunitiestoimprovethe

environmental footprint of his 160­yearold

business.

Solar panelswere the nextlogical step

after the installation of e­bike chargers

at the bakery entrance lastyear.

‘‘The installation of our freee­bike

chargers increased our power usage, so

we thought‘how can we offset thatcost?’.

Solar energywas the obviousanswer.’’

It is hoped the panels will produce

more that what’s needed as summer

approaches.

The initial solar panel outlaywas

about halfamillion dollars, but Mr van

Til expected the return on investment to

take onlysix years, compared to the

average household payback of 12­14

years.

‘‘It is alarge initialoutlay, but asixyear

payback is agood return. The

panelsalso come with a25year

guarantee and after those 25 years it’s

expected that the panels will lose only

around15% of theirefficacy. This is a

good wearing asset.’’

As supplierstoseveral multinational

companies, Rangiora Bakery is required

to be an environmentally responsible

organisation, and is audited annually on

this basis.

Throughaudit,todate, the business

has been earmarked as one of the

leadingcompanies taking action on

climatepositive initiatives.

‘‘Lots of businessestalk about going

green, but we choose to actually take the

steps required to implement these

initiatives.

‘‘Whileweare required to investigate

these opportunities as partofour

multinationalcontracts, thereisalso a

level of socialresponsibility here which

we takeseriously.’’

Mr van Til said other businesses

considering the shift to solar energy

should definitely consider it.

‘‘MainPower was fantastic to work with

and theyare keen to do more solar

installationsinNorth Canterbury. In

addition, there are localNorth

Canterbury businessesproviding solar

installation,soyou can support local all

the way.’’

Mr van Til says there are no

Governmentsubsidies he is aware of to

help businesseswith the investment,but,

some installation companies will offera

lease and buy­back typeofset­up,easing

the initialcost outlay.

Rangiora Bakery isn’tthe first largescale

business in Waimakariritoinvest

in solar power.Misco Joinery installed

535 panels on its factoryroof in Kaiapoi

in 2019.

At the time, it was the largest solar

energy systeminCanterbury.The system

provides up to 70% of the energy

requirements for Misco Joinery’s

showroom and workshop, which is the

Powering on ... The solar panels on the roof of the Rangiora Bakery, High Street,

largest automated plantinthe South

Island.

MiscoJoinery’s Penny Abell says the

installation has proven valuable to the

business.

‘‘In our showroomwehave screens

that show how many trees we have saved

and our reduced carbonemissions

through the use of solar energy.This is a

greattalking pointwith clients, but also

showsusthe impact we are having.’’

Pennysays the nextclimate­friendly

addition to the business will be an EV

charging point which will run on the

solar energygenerated by the panels.

In addition, Misco Joineryisinthe

process of gaining its Toitu Enviromark

Certification; an accreditationwhich

requires ongoing efforts and audits to

reach and maintainacredible

environmental management system.

‘‘For any business thinkingabout

investing in solar energy, we would say

go for it. It has many benefits.’’

Dotterel facing multiple threats

By DAVID HILL,

Local Democracy Reporter

Kaikōura conservationist Ailsa McGilvary­

Howardbelieves it willtake achangein

legislation to save our native seabirds.

Ms McGilvary­Howard has spent the last

decadeadvocatingfor Kaikōura’sbanded

dotterel sea birds and is atrustee of the

Hutton’s Shearwater Charitable Trust.

She says the dotterel face multiple

threats including cats, dogs,four­wheeldrive

vehicles on the beach and crash

landing due to streetlighting.

‘‘People just don’t seemtocare, so what

we need is achange in legislation,

otherwise we willlose them and we are

losingthem.’’

Anesting site which she monitors had 25

pairs of dotterelafew years ago, but this

numberhas reducedtojust 11 breeding

pairs.

‘‘We had two domesticcats go absolutely

rampant recently. It was reallydepressing,

but we can’tdoanythingabout catsand

then we get dogs on the beach.And do

peopleneed to drive on the beach?’’

Ms McGilvary­Howard says peopleoften

assumeshe hatesanimals, but she has a

dog of her own.

‘‘I am an animal lover too,but my dog is

not allowed to eatchickens.’’

Part of the problemisthere are few

mammals native to New Zealand, so the

dotterelhas not naturally evolved with

mammalpredators like birds in other

countries.

‘‘The New Zealand dotterels and other

sea birds are smelly and some of the most

tasty,which draws in cats and dogs,’’ she

says.

‘‘Thatiswhy birds introduced from

Australia are doing well, becausethey had

marsupials which is aform of mammal.’’

Added to the lossofbreedingpairsisthe

lack newborn dotterel chicks, as eggs are

often crushed or eaten.

Maori ward

on agenda

Mana whenua representation in

Kaikōura will be considered again next

year.

Kaikōura District Council chief

executive Will Doughty says the council

will consider aMaori ward as part of its

representation review during the 2023/24

financial year.

DiscussiononaMaori ward is not new

to Kaikōura. The council voted in 2018 to

establish aMaori wardfor the 2019 and

2022 local government elections.

But it faced abacklash after lobby

group Hobson’s Pledge distributed

pamphlets, whichled to areferendum

where the proposal was defeated.

Mana whenua representation was back

on the agenda last year, butthe council

opted not to create aMaori ward after

extensive consultation with Te Runānga

oKaikōura.

‘‘We work really closely with the

runānga,’’ Mr Doughty says. ‘‘When the

opportunity for Maori representation

came in we had aworkshop with the

runānga around Maori wards.

‘‘It wasn’t a‘no’, but a‘not right now’.’’

He says there are still anumber of

unanswered questions, especially

around the speed of the process. The

council meetsregularly with the runānga

to discussissues of concern andthe

partnership is important to both parties,

he says.

‘‘We have been looking at thepotential

for advisory committees and the review

process will give us achance to have

another look. But we are also conscious

that there are quite alot of demands

being put on the runānga,soitisabout

working together in partnership in away

that works best for both of us.’’

Three Waters funding sought

By DAVID HILL

Local Democracy Reporter

The Waimakariri District Council will seek

ThreeWaters funding, while maintaining

its opposition to the proposed reform.

Councillorsvoted unanimously at an

extraordinary meeting on Tuesday,

November 22, to authoriseafunding

application to the Department of Internal

Affairs (DIA) for $5.54 million of ‘‘Better

Off’’funding.

The application was approved with the

insertion of clausesinto the draft funding

agreementdesignedtoprotect thecouncil’s

opposition the government’s proposed

reform programme.

The clauses wereprepared by law firm

Anderson and Lloyd and protect the

council’s membershipoflobby group

Communities 4Local Democracy.

MayorDan Gordonsaid the funding was

agood opportunity for the council to

completesome projects which it would

otherwise not be able to do in the short

term.

The original draft agreementfrom DIA

contained clauses whichappeared to

prevent councilsfrom opposing the reform

agenda.

‘‘They are apparently standard wording

in DIA agreements, so perhaps theyhaven’t

been read closely enough in the past,’’ Mr

Gordon said.‘‘Butthe clauses from

Anderson and Lloyd havepreserved our

principles around Three Waters.’’

Waimakariri District Council strategy,

engagement and economic development

general manager Simon Hart said initial

indications fromDIA staffsuggested the

new clauses may not be acceptable to DIA.

‘‘We sought some advice and we were

givenseveral options, we couldproceed as

planned with the newclauses,orwecould

delete the offendingDIA clauses, we could

just go with the standard agreementornot

proceed at all.’’

Mr Hartsaid the recommendation was to

proceed with the newclauses ‘‘andwecan

always revisit it, if it is rejected’’.

Should the application be successful,the

council will place afocus on climate

change projects.

Elderly persons’ housing, the Kaiapoi to

Woodend cycle way, the Rangiora civic

precinct project and aKāinga Nohoanga

Strategy projectinMaori Reserve 873 were

also included.

Cr Philip Redmond saidhewas initially

going to oppose the funding application,

but changedhis mind on the basis of the

new clauses being inserted.

An assurance from Opposition Three

Waters Spokesperson Simon Watts that

National would not require the money to be

repaid, shoulditwin nextyear’selection,

had alsohelped to sway his vote.

‘‘Weare effectivelyreceiving adeposit

towards our assetsand evenifwe were to

turnthis payment downwewon’t

necessarilylose it, if there is no change of

government.

‘‘But if we don’t acceptitnow and there

is achange of government, the money

probably wouldn’t be offered again.’’

The WaimakaririDistrict Councilis

eligible for up to $22.18 million of ‘‘Better

Off’’ funding, includingupto$5.54 million

in the first tranche.

The ‘‘Better Off’’ funding is for afive­year

programmeand projects wouldbesubject

to finalapproval fromthe council’s utilities

and roadingcommittee and will likely be

consideredaspart of the council’s annual

Baptism by fire at Coastal Park

By SHELLEY TOPP

TuhaitaraCoastalPark’snew senior

ranger Deane Barlow had asharp

reality check duringhis firstfew

weeksinto the job.

The former Environment

Canterbury rangerbegan work at the

park on October 17, but was faced with

an emergency only afew weeks later

when the Pegasus Beach fire, which

was startedbyfireworks,badly

damaged large areas of the park.

‘‘It was avery worrying timefor us,

as we had no idea what the scaleofthe

fire was going to be,’’ Deane says.

‘‘Oursmall team put in amassive

effort to get up to speed, attend

callouts at various hours, and keep on

top of hot spots.

‘‘I would liketothankeveryone

involved on thefire ground, FENZ

(Fireand EmergencyNew Zealand),

the aircrew for all theirhard work

containing the blaze, and the

communitywho provided food and

refreshments to all involved,and

everyonewho came together to

support the effortsofthe team,’’ he

says.

‘‘That support has beenvery

uplifting and we can’t wait to work

alongside everyonetoreturn the park

back to an amazing place again.’’

Work hasalready begunonthe

recovery programme.

‘‘We are looking forward to the

opportunities the fire has given us

whilenot forgettingthe time and

effort that has been lost due to the

fire,’’ Deanesays.

‘‘There is still much discussion to be

had with what is ultimately going to

happen with the forestry trees, and

that will againadd more options.’’

Before acceptinghis new roleDeane

had workedalongside GregByrnes,

general manager of the Te Kōhaka o

Tūhaitara Trust, administratorsofthe

park,and alsoanewly­elected

Environment Canterbury councillor,

doingbeach patrols from Kairaki to

Waikuku.

‘‘I was attractedtothe role by Greg’s

passion for Tuhaitara Coastal Park

and the chance to be apart of the

amazing teamand communityof

people who put such ahuge effortinto

restoringthis special place, Deane

says.

‘‘Greg has reallypavedthe way with

the restoration workofTutaepatu

Lagoon, the wetlands, native plantings

and getting this place into alovely

public asset for all to enjoy,soIhope

to continuethat great work and build

the team's capabilities in all areas,

while maintaining ahighlevel of

passion, and pride in theirwork to

Despite the fire adding an unwanted

layer of dramatohis first few weeks

working at the parkDeaneisenjoying

his new role, and feelslucky to have

suchabeautiful workspace.

‘‘Ithas beenfantastic. The team has

beenvery accommodating and Ihave

beenwelcomedwith open arms.’’

His role involves the daily

maintenance and improvements to the

parkspace. It can be anything from

trail upkeep,dealing with wind­blown

trees, responding to public queries,

hosting school and communitygroup

plantings and dealing with‘‘whatever

other curve balls arethrown our way’’.

Deane's favouriteplaceinthe park

is overlooking Tutaepatu Lagoon, and

he is looking forward to rebuilding the

Tiny herd the heart of anew milk venture

Atiny,individualisedherd of show cows

forms the heart of anew operation—

supplying raw milk to the public, three

minutes from Rangiora.

Peter and Claire Hansen’s Fernside

Fresh, has blended Peter’s lifelong

obsession with registered Jersey show

cows, into abusiness model witha

difference.

The beauty of atiny herd, arare

phenomenoninNew Zealand,includesa

lot of natural advantagesfor the 16 handpicked

cows, whosemilk filltwo,

200­litre self­serve milk vending

machines, every day at the family’s new

dairy at 492 Oxford Rd, near the

Fernside school.

The cowsare pasture fed and only

have ashort 200mwalk to the dairyeach

day. Milking takes no more than 20

minutes twice­a­day,and as the milk

doesn’t have to go the milk factory, fresh

milk is available at afast clip.

All the calves are reared at Fernside

Fresh, including the bull calves.

While the national averagelifespan for

adairy cow is between three to four

years, Fernside Freshhas cows still

milking aged 14 years.

Without the pressures of alargeherd,

the cows liveacomfortable life witha

local purpose.

They carry registered nameslike

Chanel, Bright Eyes, and Viyella, and are

shown by the family at the Canterbury

A&P Show.

Its beenafamily dream to be able to

sell aquality producttothe publicand

cut out the middle man, Peter says.

Claire says, Pete’spassion is for the

cows, and becauseofthat ‘‘we have milk

and we wanted to makeitavailable to the

public’’.

The small Fernside Fresh herd comes

with some Royal connections.

The late Queen ElizabethIIowned a

Jersey herd(which was established at

Windsor in 1871).

She is looselylinked to two of the cow

families at Fernside Fresh—Viyella and

Bright Eyes. They were bought from the

New Zealand breeders who the Queen

ownedcows in partnershipwith for many

years—FerdonGenetics, at Otorohanga.

AlthoughFernside Fresh is a

newcomer to the market, Peterhas been

working towards this reality since he was

10­years­old.

Peter’s grandparents, Fred and Freda,

farmed Jerseys on Fernside Roadfrom

1936,and despite owning his successful

drainlayingbusiness Peter Hansen

Drainlaying, Peter has neverwavered

from his passion for Jersey cows.

He and Claire travelled to Australia in

Atravestyoftiming thwarted their

Ten days before the cows boarded the

plane from Australia havingpassed all

their tests and completed their

quarantine,New Zealand's Ministry for

PrimaryIndustries (MPI) reported NZs

first outbreak of Mycoplasma bovis (M.

The border was shut. The dream and

Fernside Fresh’sconcept to reality

took agame­changing step forward two

yearsago when the couplefoundthe

Sincethen, they have been workingto

develop their new property,including

building acowshedand shop front.

Approval to market their milk from the

Ministry for Primary Industry (MPI)

completed theirfinalstep.

‘‘Every week, we see messages on

Creek water quality improving

By DAVID HILL,

Local Democracy Reporter

RURAL LIFE

North Canterbury News, November 24, 2022

29

QUALITY FENCING

BUILT TOYOUR BUDGET!

Kaikōura’s familiar stream is now a

space enjoyed by all, says Kaikōura

Zone Committee chairperson Ted

Howard.

The Waikōau /Lyell Creek catchment

has seen major improvements in water

quality, biodiversity and mahinga kai

values over the past 60 to 70 years

through community action.

The creek flows from springs, fed via

groundwater from the alpine braided

Kowhai River, and meanders across the

pastoral landscape and lifestyle blocks

of the Kaikōura Flats and into the town.

The zone committee made it apriority

to improve the water quality of Lyell

Creek in 2012.

‘‘It is agreat place for the community,’’

Mr Howard says.

‘‘Birds, fish and insects can thrive in

it, and it provides away for locals to

connect with their natural environment.

‘‘It wasn’t always like this, so it is great

to be able to look back on decades of past

actions and see how over time, people

and place has been connected, with

outstanding outcomes to improving such

acentral water way.’’

But more needs to be done and

keeping the community connected to the

stream is one of the keys to keep

improving water quality, he says.

In 2017, the post­quake Kaikōura

Plains Recovery Project carried out a

stream walk along Lyell Creek and its

connected drains, to collect information

on the health of the catchment.

The survey led to two reports being

compiled by the National Institute of

Water and Atmospheric Research

(NIWA).

The stream walk approach is now

being used as atemplate for other

catchment projects in Kaikōura.

some cultural artwork has also been

established at the public reserve by

State Highway 1, to raise awareness of

stormwater impacts on the creek, and

the cultural importance of the area.

Planting has also been apriority for

the zone committee.

‘‘This reserve is shaping up to be a

rich outdoor classroom, and aplace of

quiet contemplation, for people to

connect with the awa and continue

traditions of mahinga kai,’’ Environment

Canterbury land management and

biodiversity advisor Heath Melville

says.

‘‘Over the last 10 or so years there’s

been ongoing weed control, numerous

community stream and beach clean ups

and educational opportunities in the

lower Lyell area.’’

Dairy Awards closing soon

North Canterbury dairy industry

workers and owners have until

December 5, 2022 to enter the New

Zealand Dairy Industry Awards 2023.

Whether you are an up­and­coming

dairy farmer, or looking to boost your

career in dairy management, then you

should consider entering the awards.

More information can be found at at

dairyindustryawards.co.nz

NZDI general manager Robin

Congdon said all the regional

committees came together for a

conference earlier to learn how to

deliver the 48 regional events and

numerous judging days.

‘‘The conference was abusy few

days, ensuring everyone knows what’s

required to deliver the dynamic

programme and bring them up to

speed on this year’s changes made to

the Share Farmer category judging

process,’’ he said.

For North Canterbury entrants in

the Canterbury/North Otago regional

dairy trainee of the year ­skills day,

dairy manager of the year and share

farmer of the year, the preliminary

judging will take place next year

during the week of February 14 to 16 .

More information is available at

dairyindustryawards.co.nz/regions,

and on regional facebook pages.

Entries for all categories will be

accepted online at

dairyindustryawards.co.nz until

December 5.

Concept plans have been developed

for the public reserve next to the

Kaikōura I­Site, while input from Te

Rūnanga oKaikōura has led to agreater

emphasis on mahinga kai and rewilding.

Dibb World Champion

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Bronwyn Dibb, from

Rangiora­based Ice

Trampoline and

Gymnastics North

Canterbury, is aWorld

Champion.

Dibb took out the

women’s double mini

trampoline title last

Saturday morning, at

Sofia in Bulgaria, ahead

of the United States and

Australia.

It was an extremely

close final. Dibb scored

just 0.1 ahead of silver —

with only 0.900

separating gold and

bronze.

Her world title comes

just four months after

winning silver at the

2022 World Games.

‘‘To become aworld

champion and win the

gold medal is adream

come true and makes all

the hard work, time,

effort, and sacrifices all

worth it.

‘‘I am so grateful for

the opportunity to get

out on the world stage

and represent my

country and for

everyone who has

supported me on my

journey to this day’’

‘‘I was shocked when I

realised that Ihad won

gold.

‘‘It was very exciting

waiting for the scores

from the other finalists,

keeping the faith one

after another until the

final result.

‘‘I could not be

happier,’’ she says.

New Zealand’s last

double mini world

champion was Kylie

Walker back in 1998,

who was also coached by

Dibb’s coach Nigel

Humphreys.

Humphreys says it

hard to believe 24 years

has gone by since

Walker’s World

Championship win.

‘‘As acoach you

always hope for another

‘once in alifetime

athlete’ but most are not

as fortunate as me.

‘‘Bronwyn is such a

special person and

dedicated to being the

best she can be.’’

As asecondary event,

Dibb competed in the

synchronised

trampoline competition

with Tokyo Olympian

Madaline Davidson

(Olympia Gymnastic

Sports, Christchurch)

where the pair finished

16th.

World champion ... Bronwyn Dibb, who won the

women’s double mini trampolinetitle and the World

title at Sofia, Bulgaria.

Dibb’s trampolining

feats were celebrated at

the North Canterbury

Sports Awards earlier

this year, where Dibb

Percival St, Rangiora

(03) 313-8186

took out the Supreme

Award at the event

hosted by the North

Canterbury Sport and

Rallying to super saloons

By JOHN COSGROVE

Two thingswill be different when

notedrallydriver Matt

Summerfield lines up at

Woodford Glen Speedway on

December 3.

His sister, Nicole,won’t be codriver

and he won’tbeonhis own

as he races asupersaloon

around the short oval track.

‘‘I haveverylittle experience

with cars being aroundme. Ihave

had some circuit racingevents

(Skope classicmeetings) and a

few goesatRuapunaspeedway,

but this is very different as it’s

difficulttojudge what others are

goingtodoand how close Ican

get to thematthe moment,’’ he

said.

Back in August Josh Boulton,

former national champion and

ownerofthe veryrespected

Boulton Racing TeaminNorth

Canterbury, announcedMattasa

second new driver in the team,

drivingasupersaloon for afull

season.

Matt saysthe opportunity came

aboutafter he was approachedby

BRT, whichwas looking for

someone outside of speedway to

come andhave agoinone of

theirhand built racecars.

‘‘I can’t reallytake much over

from rallying at all, I’m pretty

used to the speed side but

everythingelse,the other

competitors around me and the

way car behaves as well as the

trackisall goingtobevery new to

me,’’hesaid. ‘‘I’m just looking

forward to learning all that Ican

with the teamasIamvery

fortunate to be working alongside

Josh Boulton and the BRTteam

who are well known for both his

skillswinning national

championships and also for

building race cars to exactingly

high standardsofdetail and

craftsmanship.’’

Matt saysheislooking forward

to theracing anddevelopingthe

skillsneeded to be competitive,

understanding what the car

needs to go fast, and developing

assertive racecraft and not be

pushedback. The December3

meeting at WoodfordGlen ,will

host the Mainland Stockcar

What’s happening in your

community…

Smith Street Speed Limits –Only aFew

Days Le toHave Your Say

Should we lower the Smith Street speed limit from

80km to 50km?

The Council is reviewing speed limits to ensure

roads have safe and appropriate speeds for their

current use.

This review focuses between the SH1 motorway

interchange and the Cam River bridge.

Further development istaking place in the

commercial area on the south side of the

road. This means the current speed limit is not

appropriate for the future urban residential and

commercial setting.

We welcome your feedback on the proposed

change. Share your thoughts with us on the link

below before Monday 28November 2022.

Road Resealing Programme

This summer it’s sealing season. Council is rolling

out its road resurfacing programme and you will

see contractors working on various roads around

the District.

To begin with contractors will prepare the roads,

ready to be sealed. This involves minor repairs

including filling potholes, repairing edge break and

carrying out minor levelling works before the new

chipseal is applied.

Thework will be carriedout duringthe day and

contractors willtry andkeepdisruptiontoaminimum

however, theremay be some impacts including:

• Limited traffic movementthroughthe street, some

controlled access and reduced on-street parking

• There may be some noise and vibration from

construction during the day

• The area will be swept within 48 hours of sealing

but we would expect asmall amount of ongoing

chip loss over the next 3-6 months.

Letterdrops will be carried out prior to chipsealing

being carried out. This is an ongoing programme so

keepaneye on ourFacebook pagefor regular updates.
