Legionella bacteria in hot water<br />

By JOHN COSGROVE<br />

Legionella bacteria has been<br />

discovered at aretirement complex in<br />

Rangiora.<br />

Aresident at BainswoodHouse<br />

contracted Legionnaires diseaseat<br />

the complex recently, but has since<br />

recoveredfollowing treatment.<br />

The family of aresidentsay they<br />

were informed the disease was found<br />

in the hot water supply.<br />

Whilepraising the efforts of staff<br />

who reacted to the outbreak and cared<br />

for residents, they were concerned<br />

aboutthe continuedlack of hot water<br />

for their loved one.<br />

Director of Rangiora Lifecare, Paul<br />

Renwicksays following the resident<br />

becomingill, staffquickly put into<br />

placeprocesses to respond to the<br />

threat.<br />

‘‘Legionella bacteria were detected<br />

in the hotwater systembyhealth<br />

protection officers from Te Mana Ora<br />

Communityand PublicHealth, partof<br />

the National PublicHealthService.’’<br />

When someone breathes in small<br />

droplets of water containing the<br />

bacteria, theycan contract<br />

Legionnaires’disease.<br />

‘‘We are beingwell supported by our<br />

public health team in <strong>Canterbury</strong>.<br />

‘‘Following their advice, we turned<br />

the hot water offand put several<br />

processesinplace to mitigatethe risk<br />

of furtherinfection.<br />

‘‘We also engagedacontractor to<br />

carryout achemical treatment and<br />

flushofthe hot watersystem.’’<br />

As legionella bacteria were detected<br />

againinthe hot water system of the<br />

main facility and one of the freestanding<br />

villas, the hot water<br />

temperature across BainswoodHouse<br />

and in all the villas was raised to 65°<br />

Celsius.<br />

Legionella bacteria cannot survive<br />

at this temperature.<br />

‘‘To reduce therisk of scalding,<br />

plumbershave installed tempering<br />

valves on the hottaps acrossthe<br />

facility, including the villas.<br />

‘‘These valves inject cold water into<br />

the hot justbefore it enters the tap<br />

whichlowers the temperature of the<br />

Renwicksays.<br />

They have alsoorganised further<br />

chemical disinfection of theirentire<br />

water system. He says with these<br />

processes in place, the likelihood of<br />

furtherinfectionisvery small, and<br />

public health officials and the<br />

Bainswood team continue to closely<br />

monitorthe situation.<br />

‘‘The health and wellbeing of the<br />

residents in ourcareremains our<br />

highestpriority andwewould liketo<br />

thank our stafffor going above and<br />

beyond during this time.’’<br />

Public Health officials say<br />

Legionellosis or Legionnaires' disease<br />

is causedbycommonLegionella<br />

bacteria, which lives in the<br />

environment, especially in soil,<br />

compost, potting mix muds andany<br />

type of water systemsuch as spa pools,<br />

WhileLegionellosis is notcommon<br />

in New Zealand, most people’s natural<br />

immunity stopsthem from getting ill<br />

when exposed to the bacteria.<br />

Susceptible people catch<br />

legionellosisbybreathing in airborne<br />

particles fromawater source that<br />

contains Legionella bacteria, or after<br />

inhaling dust from soil.<br />

Once in the lungs the bacteria<br />

multiplyand may cause amild illness<br />

pneumonia(Legionnaires’ disease).<br />

The infection is not contagious and<br />

can'tbecaught fromanother person.<br />

People with Pontiac fever generally<br />

recover in two to five days without<br />

treatment.<br />

Legionnaires’ disease is treatable<br />

with antibiotics.<br />

New Kahika building has room for growth<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Local Democracy Reporter<br />

Indigenous trees and birds<br />

feature permanently in anew<br />

look <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> school.<br />

Pupils at Leithfield School,<br />

south of Amberley, can’t wait to<br />

move into the new $2.5 million<br />

Kahika building in term two.<br />

‘‘They’re very excited. You<br />

should have seen them pressing<br />

their faces against the glass<br />

when the fences came down,’’<br />

principal Rob Cavanagh said.<br />

Kahika, short for the native<br />

kahikatea tree, has been<br />

chosen as part of acultural<br />

narrative from Te Rūnanga o<br />

Tūāhuriri.<br />

Buildings at the school were<br />

named after trees and classes<br />

after birds.<br />

‘‘As the kahikatea stands<br />

proud in our native forests, this<br />

will stand proud in our<br />

community,’’ Mr Cavanagh said.<br />

The new building provided<br />

space for up to 100 pupils, with<br />

four teaching spaces, break out<br />

rooms, acommunal area, multipurpose<br />

wet room and a<br />

balcony overlooking the school<br />

gardens.<br />

‘‘It is fantastic. We will be<br />

able to grow into this space, so<br />

we will be well future proofed,’’<br />

Mr Cavanagh said.<br />

‘‘It is just awonderful<br />

resource.’’<br />

He said it had been along<br />

process, with one class utilising<br />

the school hall as aclassroom<br />

for the last year and aterm.<br />

‘‘The hall is agreat space for<br />

PE, assemblies and performing,<br />

but it is not so good for<br />

learning.’’<br />

The communal space was big<br />

enough to hold full school<br />

assemblies, he said.<br />

The school was experiencing<br />

steady growth with five<br />

teachers and was expected to<br />

pass 120 pupils by the end of<br />

this year.<br />

The other classrooms were in<br />

the process of being<br />

refurbished to set the school up<br />

for the future.<br />

Former principal Sharon<br />

Marsh returned to the school<br />

last week to see the completed<br />

project first hand.<br />

‘‘I saw the plans and Icame a<br />

couple of times when it was<br />

being built, but Isaved coming<br />

inside until now.<br />

‘‘We put in so much time<br />

talking to principals and<br />

teachers to see what works and<br />

what doesn't work and<br />

gathering all that information,<br />

so it is exciting to see it finally<br />

completed.’’<br />

Storage dam near Oxford one step closer<br />

By DAVID HILL,<br />

Local Democracy Reporter<br />

An 8.2 million cubic metre water storage<br />

dam near Oxford is one step closer to<br />

becoming areality.<br />

Waimakariri Irrigation Limited (WIL)<br />

is seeking shareholder support for a<br />

new dam design.<br />

Seventy­five percent shareholder<br />

support is needed for the project to<br />

proceed.<br />

Avote is likely to be held at the end of<br />

next month.<br />

Chief executive Brent Walton says<br />

reliable water storage is the key to<br />

meeting Environment <strong>Canterbury</strong>’s<br />

Plan Change 7commitments, and<br />

ensuring farming in the district is<br />

sustainable.<br />

‘‘We are asking shareholders to invest<br />

in something which will give them short<br />

term benefits, but the people who will<br />

ultimately benefit from it will be the<br />

next generation of farmers,’’ he says.<br />

‘‘If we don’t go ahead, we would really<br />

struggle to consent another water<br />

storage facility in the area, so in my<br />

mind this is probably our only<br />

opportunity.<br />

‘‘We don’t have aplan B.’’<br />

The proposed water storage dam<br />

would give farmer shareholders about<br />

90% reliability, compared to 75% from<br />

the present ‘‘run of­the­river’’ consent,<br />

Mr Walton says.<br />

Land was first bought at Wrights<br />

Road, near Oxford, in 2007 for awater<br />

GREAT NORTHERN VILLAS -LIFESTYLE VILLAGE<br />

storage facility.<br />

WIL was granted six consents by the<br />

Environment Court in 2020, with ‘‘a very<br />

long list of conditions’’, following a<br />

decade long battle.<br />

‘‘A lot has happened since then (2007),<br />

but one constant is that the cost of water<br />

storage and the environmental<br />

standards are only going to increase.’’<br />

Mr Walton says WIL is also busy<br />

working on anumber of biodiversity<br />

projects with both shareholder and nonshareholder<br />

farms in the district.<br />

WIL was working with environmental<br />

consultant Dan Cameron to provide<br />

landscape and planting advice to<br />

farmers and was working closely with<br />

the Waimakariri Biodiversity Trust.<br />

‘‘The momentum of these projects is<br />

5<br />

growing, and as the programme<br />

expands, WIL sees its role as an<br />

‘enabler’ in supporting farmers.’’<br />

WIL’s discharge consent was due to<br />

expire in 2025 and Mr Walton said WIL<br />

planned to submit its application to<br />

ECan to renew the consent by the end of<br />

the year.<br />

Akey part of the process was updating<br />

all shareholder farm environmental<br />

plans and placing them on to aGIS<br />

platform, he said.<br />

‘‘This gives farmers greater visibility<br />

of their farming activities and enables<br />

them and the scheme to track<br />

environmental improvements and<br />

nitrogen reductions.’’<br />

STUART SMITH MP FOR KAIKOURA<br />

Fundamental right<br />

The right to freedom of expression is a<br />

fundamental human right, and it is crucial<br />

for the functioning of ademocratic society.<br />

It allows individuals to express their<br />

opinions and beliefs, even if they are<br />

unpopular or controversial.<br />

This rightisprotected by international<br />

law and is enshrined in our Bill of Rights<br />

Lastweek, protesters took to the streets<br />

in Auckland to demonstrate against British<br />

writer,Posie Parker.<br />

Ididn't know who Posie Parkerwas<br />

before this event, and franklyIdon't care.<br />

Idonot subscribe to her view on<br />

transgender people either, but Irespect<br />

her right to free speech.<br />

What was particularly concerning about<br />

this protestwas how the protesters put<br />

their viewsabove the right to freedomof<br />

expression.<br />

Theyaccused Parker of being<br />

transphobic and promoting hate speech<br />

againsttransgender individuals, and while<br />

it is understandable that some may<br />

disagree with Parker's views, attempting to<br />

silence her and preventher from<br />

expressing them, is not acceptable.<br />

The protesters behaved as though their<br />

views were more importantthan the right<br />

to freedom of expressionofothers: they<br />

argued that Parker's views were harmful<br />

and had real­world consequences for<br />

transgender individuals, and therefore,<br />

she should not be allowed to express them.<br />

Well, this is adangerous precedent to<br />

set.<br />

When individuals start to believe that<br />

their viewsare more important than the<br />

right to freedom of expression, it opens the<br />

door to censorship and the silencing of<br />

dissenting opinions. It is also important to<br />

note that what constitutes hate speech is<br />

often amatter of subjective interpretation,<br />

anditisnot the place of protesters to<br />

determine what can and cannot be said.<br />

If Parker's views are indeed harmful and<br />

offensive, then individuals are free to<br />

criticise and challenge them. Likewise,if<br />

the protesters’ actions are harmful and<br />

offensive, then they too, should be subject<br />

to the same options.<br />

Attempting to silence Posie Parkerand<br />

prevent her from expressing them is a<br />

violation of her fundamental human rights.<br />

One must remember, however, that the<br />

protesters did not represent the entire<br />

transgender community, and many<br />

transgender individuals have expressed<br />

their support for Parker'sright to freedom<br />

of expression, even if they do not agree<br />

with her views.<br />

Attempting to silence Parker and her<br />

supporters is aviolation of their<br />

fundamental human rights,and to think<br />

otherwise is to accept mob rule, which is a<br />

pathway to chaos.<br />

Government Minister Marama Davidson<br />

was intoxicated by her participation in the<br />

protest andmadesome outrageous racist<br />

and sexistcomments. Questions must be<br />

asked around why the Police appeared to<br />

stand by.<br />

not protecting the right of free speech<br />

Hurunui and the Waimakariri and<br />

Hurunui district councilshave joined<br />

forces to create the nextsteps.org.nz<br />

information about <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong>’s<br />

social services.<br />

Waimakariri District Council<br />

community development facilitator<br />

Rachel Thornton says the new online<br />

resourcecame out of the Covid­19<br />

experience.<br />

The website builtonthe Ministry for<br />

Social Development funded community<br />

connector service, knownlocallyasthe<br />

nextstepsfacilitator service, she says.<br />

‘‘After Covidthere were anumber of<br />

vulnerable people and the challenge we<br />

had was how do we get information out to<br />

them.’’<br />

The website allows people to help<br />

themselvestotake the next steps to<br />

improve their mental wellbeing.<br />

‘‘Those of us who work in the social<br />

servicesector,weknow who the<br />

counsellorsare, but the general public<br />

doesn’t necessarilyknow, so how do we<br />

makeiteasy for them?’’<br />

Social Services Waimakariri facilitator<br />

Nicki Cartersays the website showcased<br />

all of the socialservice and community<br />

organisations serving the <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> area.<br />

It was designedtoavoidduplication and<br />

to use resources moreefficiently.<br />

‘‘In the Waimakariri we are national<br />

leaders in this space, so it is definitely a<br />

concept which might get picked up<br />

elsewhere in the country.’’<br />

Waimakariri MayorDan Gordon said<br />

the new website was agreat resource for<br />

the community.<br />

‘‘While the initial shock of Covid­19 is<br />

gone we know thiswill not be the last<br />

event our country faces and it is important<br />

we learn fromprevious events. Havingall<br />

this information in one place, withsupport<br />

specific to <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong>, is afantastic<br />

resourceand Iapplaud allour<br />

communities’providers for working<br />

together to makethis happen.<br />

‘‘Theinformation is non­threatening,<br />

accessible and provided in an<br />

empowering way that will connect with a<br />

lot of our residents when they need<br />

support.’’<br />

The website posed questions to direct<br />

people to the help they needed and was<br />

entirelyonline and anonymous, Ms<br />

Thornton said.<br />

It beginsbyasking if you are in<br />

immediate danger(call 111) or just need to<br />

talk (call/text1737).The website has<br />

sectionsincluding physical, mental and<br />

In brief<br />

Work on the Kowai toAmberley water pipeline is<br />

progressing well.<br />

WORKS UPDATES<br />

Litter-free lunch boxes in schools in Hurunui -<br />

they're great for the environment and the pocket.<br />

MEDBURY ROAD<br />

Installation works are underway for the Medbury Road watermain works, which is relocating the Hawarden<br />

and Waikari potable water pipelines to provide extra resilience from high river level events. Contractors have<br />

trenched and installed 2.6km of pipeline along The Peaks Road, and will be continuing the installation down<br />

Medbury Road.<br />

KOWAI AMBERLEY WATERMAIN<br />

Work onthe pipeline from the Kowai water treatment plant to Amberley township isprogressing well, with all<br />

of the State Highway road crossings completed. The contractor has installed 2.2km of polyethylene pipe,<br />

which includes Kowai River Road, Hursley Terrace, Crosses Road and agood part of SH1. The pipeline gets<br />

pressure-tested in stages along the route in approximately 500m to 600m sections, which gives better<br />

results and allows for easier fault identification.<br />

CULVERDEN WATERMAIN<br />

Replacing the old watermain pipeline network along SH7 through Culverden township is happening at the<br />

moment. Contractors have drilled the pipes under the state highway and road crossings, while watermains<br />

are being installed via trenching. Special thanks to the local businesses for supporting the contractors with<br />

treats on their breaks, and for everyone's patience for the moving construction sites.<br />

LAKE SUMNER ROAD -OPEN FOR EASTER<br />

Lake Sumer Road will be open for Easter, works will resume after the holiday weekend and we will continue<br />

to provide updates as work progresses.<br />

Where better to celebrate Easter than in the Hurunui District? Did you know the first recorded use ofdecorated<br />

Easter Eggs was in the 13th Century? We can guarantee you won't need togoback in time toenjoy some<br />

delicious Easter treats, with plenty of cafes and restaurants throughout the District to choose from.<br />

THINGSYOU NEED<br />

TO KNOWBEFORE<br />

‘THE ROAR’AND<br />

GAME BIRDSEASON<br />

Information from Te Tari Pūreke -Firearms Safety Authority<br />

If you’re afirearms licence holder, you’ll need<br />

to know about changes to the storage and<br />

transport rules for firearms and ammunition,<br />

and changes to the seven rules of firearms<br />

safety.<br />

Regulations were updated in February 2022,<br />

and to help Kiwis make sense of those<br />

changes, Te Tari Pūreke, the new firearms<br />

regulator, published aSecure Storage and<br />

Transport Guide.<br />

You can download acopy of the Secure<br />

Storage and Transport Guide from www.<br />

firearmssafetyauthority.govt.nz/firearms-safety<br />

Storage and transport for firearms andammunition, key points<br />

Transportation<br />

If you’re driving to ahunting location, your<br />

firearm needs to be inoperable during your<br />

travel and, ideally, concealed from view. This<br />

means removing the bolt or an essential part<br />

(or if that’s not possible, applying atrigger or<br />

cable lock), or transporting the firearm in a<br />

locked carry case.<br />

The ammunition needs to be separately and<br />

securely stored inalocked glove box or similar<br />

storage area, if practical.<br />

And please, whatever you do, once you’ve<br />

finished using your firearm, lock it away. Never<br />

leave any firearms in your ute, shed, home or<br />

vehicle unsecured at any time.<br />

The only exceptions to the firearms and<br />

ammunition transport rules are if you’re<br />

using the firearm on afarm for farm-related<br />

activities, or you’re doing legally-authorised<br />

hunting orpest control (such as aregional<br />

council employed pest controller) and the<br />

licence holder is in the<br />

vehicle or the immediatelyy<br />

vicinity of the vehicle with<br />

the firearms in it.<br />

Make sure you read or<br />

download afree copy<br />

of the storage and<br />

transport guide to keep<br />

Ammunition<br />

All ammunition must now be storedin<br />

alockedcontainer. You can now only<br />

store ammunition with firearms ina<br />

gun safe that has aseparate lockable<br />

compartment with adifferent key than<br />

the key for the gun safe. You must<br />

keepthesekeys separate.<br />

If yoursafedoesn’t have aseparate lockable<br />

compartment, youneedtostoreammunition<br />

in itsown secure storagecontainerwith akey,<br />

combination,orpadlock,orinastoutlocked<br />

cupboard.<br />

Taking abreak when you’re travelling<br />

with firearms<br />

For those who travel with firearms to hunt<br />

locations, your inoperable and secured firearm<br />

can be left in your vehicle unattended, for<br />

example during abreak in ajourney, for up to<br />

60 minutes. But you need to lock your vehicle<br />

and stay within the immediate area or vicinity<br />

of the vehicle and meet other conditions.<br />

Mini power ... Acubby of minis at Cust last Sunday.<br />

Mini line up at Cust<br />

By RACHEL MACDONALD<br />

More than 20 Minis descended on Cust<br />

last Sunday, when local Simon Lodge<br />

threw open his shed, exposing asizeable<br />

collection of Mini parts on display for<br />

those who could make it up the driveway<br />

the fastest.<br />

It was shoulder­to­shoulder inside the<br />

roller door, and great was the<br />

disappointment when it was discovered<br />

that the classic Mini shell at the back of<br />

the garage had already been sold to a<br />

buyer from further south.<br />

Simon is along­time passionate Mini<br />

enthusiast and has been amember of the<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> Mini Car Club since he<br />

moved south from Auckland.<br />

However, anasty accident in <strong>April</strong> last<br />

year, while he and his wife were taking<br />

part in the Mainland Mini Meander, saw<br />

his little yellow car, with the Union Jack<br />

on the roof, written off and landed him in<br />

hospital.<br />

PHOTO: RACHEL MACDONALD<br />

Hence the clean­out of the garage,<br />

with years’ worth of Mini treasures going<br />

to those who can still make use of them.<br />

After lunch in the village, many<br />

members of the club then headed for<br />

Amberley to meet up with the <strong>North</strong><br />

Island contingent of the bi­annual Pork<br />

Pie Run, named for the eponymous<br />

Geoff Murphy film of 1981.<br />

Started in 2009, with 36 teams, this<br />

fundraiser loosely follows the route<br />

taken by the Blondini gang in the movie,<br />

starting in Kaitaia and ending in<br />

Invercargill with ablack tie dinner.<br />

Numbers have been capped at 60 cars<br />

ayear for the six­day trip, which raises<br />

funds for children’s charity KidsCan.<br />

The Minis came off the ferry from<br />

Wellington on Sunday, then headed to<br />

Christchurch for the night.<br />

From there, they were due to stop in<br />

Franz Josef for another overnighter,<br />

before heading on to Invercargill and<br />

the end of the run.<br />

due to Covid­19 restrictions,the annual<br />

Convenor Ivan Evans said there were<br />

230 pens of sheep, with competitors<br />

travelling from as far south as<br />

Servicing cars<br />

is essential<br />

Ashley’s Tow Taxi owner,David<br />

Thompson, is concerned people will try to<br />

save moneydelaying getting their cars<br />

serviced.<br />

He says tougheconomictimes are forcing<br />

people to look for waystomake savings.<br />

But he warnsdelaying cars being<br />

serviced is false economy.<br />

‘‘In our experience, regular maintenance<br />

will save you moneyevery time you turnthe<br />

key, or push the button,’’ David says. ‘‘A<br />

regularly serviced carisgoing to use less<br />

fuel ­typically 5to10percent.<br />

‘‘That may not seem much, but if you’re<br />

spending $100 aweek on fuel, you’re going<br />

to save between$250 and $500 ayear –<br />

whichisaboutwhat aservice will cost you.’’<br />

He says keeping yourcar serviced helps<br />

prevent big repair bills because ‘‘there’s a<br />

rule with cars:the longer you waittofix a<br />

problem, the moreitwill cost to fix, and the<br />

greater the inconvenience’’.<br />

‘‘Regular maintenance identifies<br />

problems when they’re cheapest and<br />

easiest to fix —inthe workshop and not<br />

when you’re on the sideofthe road and out<br />

of cellphone coverage.’’<br />

Davidsays regular servicing alsoprotects<br />

the resalevalueofvehicles.<br />

‘‘If you can show abuyer that your car has<br />

been regularly serviced, your car is going to<br />

be alot more attractivethan an otherwise<br />

identical car which means you’ll get more<br />

moneyfor it —potentially thousands.’’<br />

Davidsays putting off aservice for a<br />

couple of weeks, inevitablyleads to it<br />

becoming afew months because there is<br />

always something elsethat needs you hard<br />

earned money.<br />

But Ashley’s Tow Taxican then get acall<br />

saying their car has broken down. ‘‘So<br />

insteadofitcosting acoupleofhundred<br />

dollars,it’s potentially several thousand<br />

dollars because of alack of maintenance.’’<br />

Advantage -Emma<br />

KORU NUTRITION<br />

Emma has lived and<br />

breathed tennis her entire<br />

life. She plays with friends<br />

at the local club, talks<br />

about it at work and is<br />

passionately competitive.<br />

However, as the years<br />

have gone by, her joints<br />

have begun to betray her.<br />

She began feeling off the<br />

pace. Even simple tasks<br />

like walking up the stairs<br />

or carrying in bags of<br />

groceries became tiring.<br />

As Emma’s motivation<br />

to get onto the court<br />

was fading, she began to<br />

worry that if she didn’t do<br />

something soon, her friends<br />

would start to notice.<br />

That’s when acolleague<br />

at work introduced her to<br />

Koru FX. They’d been<br />

using it for afew months<br />

and was raving about how<br />

much it had supported<br />

her own joint health...<br />

Sceptical at first, Emma<br />

decided that anything was<br />

worth atry.<br />

The following week,<br />

Emma arrivedatthe courts.<br />

Awaiting the start of her set,<br />

she quietly applied some<br />

of the Koru FX across her<br />

knees and wrists.<br />

Usually, her joints would<br />

pulsate and distract her<br />

from the game but as<br />

Emma dashed from side<br />

to side returning shot after<br />

shot, she discovered that<br />

her joints were feeling<br />

supported.<br />

What she didn’t know<br />

was that as she played,<br />

the antioxidants she’d just<br />

applied to her joints were<br />

getting to work. All she<br />

could notice was aslight<br />

cooling sensation as she<br />

continued with the game.<br />

With Koru FX, Emma<br />

felt like she had asecret<br />

weapon over her opponents<br />

on the court, but she also<br />

had asecret to share with<br />

the people she loved most.<br />

Emma went on to win<br />

that game... (But sadly, she<br />

lost the next...)<br />

If you’re like Emma<br />

and looking for joint and<br />

muscle support, you can<br />

try the all-new Koru FX<br />

Koru FX Pro is full<br />

By DAVID HILL,<br />

Local Democracy Reporter<br />

Arts and cultureisfinally getting<br />

Mayfair Arts and Culture<br />

Centre Te Whare Toi oKaikōura<br />

boardchairperson JohnWyatt<br />

says the arts is finally getting the<br />

recognition it deserves,thanks to<br />

the supportofthe Kaikōura<br />

District Council, private funders<br />

and the wider community.<br />

The November 2016<br />

earthquake provided the catalyst<br />

for change,when the iconic<br />

Mayfair Theatre was severely<br />

damaged.<br />

Agroupoflocalenthusiasts got<br />

together with avision to rebuild<br />

the picturetheatre as acentre for<br />

the arts, where theycould bring<br />

together visualarts,live<br />

performances, film festivals and<br />

art education.<br />

‘‘Like every arts organisation,<br />

we’ve had fits and starts,’’ Mr<br />

Wyatt said.<br />

‘‘But with the funding that<br />

we’ve now got, we’ve managed to<br />

get aprettydiverse arts<br />

programme established.<br />

‘‘Itissomuch morethan going<br />

to the movies, the possibilities<br />

hereare endless.<br />

‘‘Ifyou think aboutpre­quake<br />

Kaikōura,peoplecame here for<br />

whales and dolphins, but we’ve<br />

always had acreativecommunity<br />

which has beenhidden and we<br />

wanttoshine alightonitand<br />

showyoungpeople what<br />

opportunitiesthere are in the<br />

arts.’’<br />

The $3.6 million centre was<br />

officially opened in November<br />

11<br />

2020 and features the original<br />

1934 art decofacade, which was<br />

saved from the oldbuilding.<br />

It was achievedthanksto<br />

grants from the Kaikōura<br />

Commission, the Rata<br />

Foundation, the Kaikōura Lions<br />

and Kaikōura SeawardLions.<br />

The LotteriesCommission<br />

recently made agrant of $20,000<br />

ayear for two years, while the<br />

Kaikōura Community Op Shop<br />

the creative arts programme.<br />

Mayfairhas provided<br />

opportunities for local school<br />

pupils to performonstageand to<br />

gain skills, thanks to fundraising<br />

from the Kaikōura Seaward<br />

Lions.<br />

‘‘Musicisnot part of the<br />

curriculumatKaikōura High<br />

School,but there are some<br />

talented musicians, so we are<br />

keen to givethem the<br />

opportunity,’’ Mr Wyatt said.<br />

‘‘Youngpeople don’t always<br />

get the opportunities to perform<br />

on stage at school, so thisgives<br />

them theopportunity to perform<br />

in atop quality, high pressure<br />

environmentand it gives them<br />

the skills and the confidence.’’<br />

Mr Wyatt said the board had<br />

partnered with the Sudima Hotel<br />

safe meeting place to thencall 111.<br />

Keeping flammable materials such as<br />

blankets and clothingatleast a‘metre<br />

FENZ says.<br />

It warns that worn and old electric<br />

blankets can cause fires, and<br />

recommends theyare replacedevery<br />

five years.<br />

‘‘Makesure it’s rolled to store it, not<br />

folded, and always turn it off before you<br />

sleep,’’ FENZ says.<br />

Gettingyour chimney cleaned<br />

Helping the community is rewarding<br />

Helping his community has been a<br />

lifetime reward for Geoff Olorenshaw.<br />

The Hawarden farmer was ateenager<br />

when he started his volunteer journey<br />

Last year, Mr Olorenshaw was a<br />

recipient of aHurunui District Council’s<br />

Community ServiceAward for his<br />

extensive work with YoungFarmers,<br />

‘‘As aruralcommunity, we owe adebt<br />

Destination intrigue<br />

By RACHEL MACDONALD<br />

Around six years ago, aparcelturnedupat<br />

the Cust Hotel,delivered there on<br />

suggestion fromthe local garage<br />

proprietor. It was addressed to Kay and<br />

Philip, ‘‘upalong drive with cows,<br />

oppositeCust pub or thereabouts’’.<br />

By pure chance,the sender’s daughterin­law<br />

was workinginthe pub’s kitchen,<br />

recognised the handwriting immediately,<br />

and was easilyable to unitethe parcel with<br />

its intended recipients.<br />

‘‘Irene (the sender) is largely blind,” she<br />

says.<br />

‘‘We wereinvited to friends, Kay and<br />

Philip Worthington in Fernsidefor dinner,<br />

and she wanted to send awee thank you<br />

gift.<br />

‘‘What she did remember was that their<br />

housewasn’t far from Cust,and therewere<br />

cattle and goatsoneachside of their<br />

driveway.’’<br />

All these years later, apicture of the<br />

parcel turned up aboutaweek ago, on the<br />

New Zealand Proud Facebookpage.<br />

It has sinceaccrued 4.7 thousandlikes,<br />

746 comments and 409 shares.<br />

What is it that has driven such an<br />

enthusiastic following?<br />

Kay summed it up on <strong>News</strong>talkZB, when<br />

she rang in on hearing the station had also<br />

picked up on the story.<br />

‘‘I think it’s one of those things thatother<br />

people have experienced or wish they<br />

had,’’ she says.<br />

The comments on New Zealand Proud,<br />

and on the Cust, Oxford and Rangiora<br />

Facebookpages, to which the storyhas<br />

been shared, certainly reflect that.The<br />

Enthusiastic following ... The parcel with<br />

an address that was not as precise as it<br />

could have been, but which made it to the<br />

recipients thanks to aclose iknit community.<br />

Recruitment challenge<br />

By DAVID HILL,<br />

Local Democracy Reporter<br />

Key appointments have been made, but<br />

there are still opportunities to work in<br />

Kaikōura.<br />

Kaikōura District Council chief<br />

executive Will Doughty says staff<br />

recruitment remains achallenge, but he<br />

is pleased to announce appointments to<br />

two senior roles.<br />

He was speaking at Wednesday’s<br />

(March 29) council meeting.<br />

‘‘We are consistently chasing our tail<br />

looking to get some replacements and we<br />

are having to rely on contractors and<br />

support in the building space.<br />

‘‘We are continuing to look at all<br />

possibilities and we are talking with<br />

Hurunui and Christchurch for continued<br />

support.’’<br />

Mr Doughty said he had appointed a<br />

new corporate services senior manager<br />

and anew regulatory services team<br />

leader.<br />

But vacancies remained for abuilding<br />

control manager and abuilding control<br />

officer, while there were also openings<br />

for acustomer services officer and a<br />

policy planner.<br />

Mr Doughty said amajor loss was<br />

Kaikōura Mayors’ Taskforce for Jobs<br />

programme co­ordinator Sean Madden,<br />

who has announced he is moving on after<br />

leading the programme for nearly three<br />

years.<br />

Speaking at Wednesday’s meeting, Mr<br />

Madden said there had been 61 job<br />

placements in the last nine months,<br />

exceeding the annual quota of 50.<br />

The programme was looking to<br />

develop ahorticultural course in<br />

conjunction with Kaikōura High School<br />

and was looking to make use of the<br />

Clearhead counselling service.<br />

Mr Madden said there was no<br />

confirmation on whether the MTFJ<br />

contract would be extended by the<br />

Ministry of Social Development.<br />

Councillors voted to notify aplan<br />

change request to build abusiness park<br />

to the south of the town.<br />

Plan Change 4has been received from<br />

Kaikōura Business Park 2021 Ltd to<br />

build abusiness park on a21.6 hectare<br />

site located 4.2km south of the town<br />

centre.<br />

The site is on the corner of Inland Road<br />

and State Highway 1.<br />

Strategy, policy and district plan<br />

manager Matt Hoggard said the entry<br />

into Inland Road would need to be<br />

moved further south due to safety<br />

reasons.<br />

The developer was also aware the<br />

service requirements would need to be<br />

met before the consent was granted, he<br />

said.<br />

The Kaikōura District Council has<br />

finally adopted its 2021/22 annual report,<br />

after receiving the final audit from Audit<br />

New Zealand.<br />

The report was normally signed off by<br />

October 31, but the Government<br />

extended the statutory deadline to<br />

December 31 due to Covid­19 challenges<br />

and staff shortages.<br />

Finance manager Sheryl Poulsen said<br />

despite the deadline extension, Audit<br />

New Zealand was unable to begin the<br />

audit until after December 31.<br />

‘‘Audit New Zealand was already<br />

grappling with its resources and then we<br />

had the property revaluations.’’<br />

The Kaikōura District Council has<br />

received a69percent satisfaction rating<br />

in its latest customer satisfaction survey,<br />

up from 68% last year and well ahead of<br />

the national average of 39%.<br />

Vegetation and Wind Storm FAQs<br />

After recent weather events around the country and as we head<br />

towards Winter, itisagood opportunity to remind our network<br />

of theimportanceofvegetationmaintenance and general house<br />

rules when it comes to storms, severe weather and minimising<br />

damage.<br />

Why amI(the vegetation owner)<br />

responsible for myvegetation<br />

impacting lines in aweather event?<br />

The responsibility of maintenance and ensuring that vegetation<br />

can cause as little risk to theMainPower lines/networkaspossible<br />

is that ofthe owner.<br />

If a tree, hedge or shelter belt is not maintained as per the<br />

requirements of regulations, it can cause serious issues if it<br />

comes in contact with lines such as;<br />

• During severe weather events, if vegetation is too close to<br />

linesitcan become electrically ‘live’. Anyone who comes into<br />

contact with electrically ‘live’vegetationmay be electrocuted.<br />

• Insevere or even bad weather, vegetation can topple over<br />

and branches may break away causing damage to power<br />

lines. Damage to the network/lines can cause significant<br />

widespread power outages.<br />

• Vegetation too close to lines may cause electrical sparking,<br />

resulting in fire and potentially causing significant damage<br />

to the lines/network.<br />

• Vegetation roots can grow around our underground<br />

electricity cables, if this happens it can rupture the insulation<br />

and cause widespread power outages.<br />

Planned Outage text notifications are<br />

now live!<br />

On Monday 13 March, MainPower went live with our new text<br />

notifications to customers about planned outages.<br />

Am Iliable if asevere weather event<br />

occurs and abelonging of mine<br />

damages the lines/network?<br />

If your belongings (e.g, atrampoline) ispicked up in asevere<br />

weather event, and damages part of our lines/network,<br />

any damage created could result in the owner (you) being<br />

responsible for the costs associated with any repairs needed to<br />

fix the network.<br />

To prevent these types ofinstances from occurring we suggest<br />

ensuring items secured correctly to your property incase of<br />

extreme weather events.The list includes but is not limited to:<br />

• Trampolines and outdoor playsets (wendy houses, swing<br />

sets etc).<br />

• Bins and recycling boxes.<br />

• Boats,caravans, and bikes.<br />

• Outdoor furniture and garden sheds.<br />

• Garden ornaments and potted plants.<br />

• Hardware, tools, and building materials/accessories.<br />

• Firewood and branches.<br />

• Gas tanks, fuel drums etc.<br />

What is a‘Fall Zone’?<br />

The ‘Fall Zone’ iswhere vegetation branches are outside of both<br />

the‘Notice Zone’and ‘GrowthZone’ limits, howeverdue to their<br />

sizeand positionwithrespect to theline/network, they present a<br />

risk of damage. (To learn more about these zones, check out the<br />

MainPower website!)<br />

If vegetation on your property is located within a fall zone,<br />

consider trimming or removing the vegetation (via qualified<br />

contractors).<br />

This is suggested to avoid causing damage to the lines/network<br />

and incurring future costs associated with any damage the<br />

vegetation maycause.<br />

This means customers will receive a text message with the<br />

outage details at the same time the retailers are notified of the<br />

outage by MainPower, and areminder text message will besent<br />

24 hours prior to the outage start time.<br />

Customers will also receive atext message if there is achange<br />

to the outage or if the outage is cancelled.<br />

New Ravenswood town centre approved<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Local Democracy Reporter<br />

Ravenswood is set to haveits own town<br />

centre.<br />

The WaimakaririDistrict Council<br />

has votedtogive effect to private plan<br />

change 30 (PC30)tothe operative<br />

WaimakaririDistrict Plan, which<br />

creates aBusiness 1zone (town centre)<br />

in Ravenswood,north Woodend.<br />

Ravenswood Developments Ltd<br />

lodged the privateplan change, which<br />

was originallynotified by the council<br />

in October2020, to createakey activity<br />

areaof35,000square metres of gross<br />

floor area.<br />

After the applicationwas declinedby<br />

independent commissioners in<br />

November 2021, Ravenswood<br />

Developments Ltd appealed to the<br />

Environment Court,where the matter<br />

was resolved throughmediation with<br />

the council.<br />

The revised PC30 has agrossfloor<br />

areaof25,500 square metres.<br />

‘‘This has been along process,’’<br />

Mayor Dan Gordon said.<br />

‘‘Wewere opposed to the initial scale<br />

of the development, because we<br />

wanted to ensurethe Kaiapoi and<br />

Rangiora business centres were not<br />

compromised. Therewas agreement<br />

through mediation.<br />

‘‘Wehave seen Harvey Norman and<br />

other large retailers being attractedto<br />

Ravenswood,sothis givesour<br />

residents more choices and reduces<br />

the need for peopletotravelinto<br />

Christchurch.’’<br />

Development planning manager Matt<br />

Bacon said the changes had been<br />

accounted for in theproposed<br />

WaimakaririDistrict Plan.<br />

Councillors also discussed<br />

arrangements for the hearings of the<br />

proposedDistrict Plan,which begin on<br />

Town centre ... Ravenswood’s retail area is set to become Business 1zone in the operative Waimakariri District Plan.<br />

May 18.<br />

Commissioners Gina Sweetman<br />

(chairperson), Gary Rae, Alan Cubitt,<br />

Megan McKay and Crs Niki Mealings<br />

and NevilleAtkinsonwere appointed<br />

in October2020.<br />

While all six commissioners would<br />

hearthe submissionsand consider the<br />

proposedDistrict Plan in its entirety,<br />

Crs Mealings and Atkinson will have to<br />

stepback when the decision on<br />

Variation1is made, Mr Bacon said.<br />

Variation1giveseffect to the Resource<br />

Management (Enabling Housing<br />

Supply and OtherMatters)Amendment<br />

Act 2021, which requiresWaimakariri,<br />

as ahigh growthcouncil, to impose<br />

medium density housing standards in<br />

its main towns.<br />

While there is acceptance the rules<br />

willapplytoRangiora and Kaiapoi,<br />

there has been opposition to the<br />

inclusionofWoodend, Pegasus and<br />

Ravenswood.<br />

Aday inthe country<br />

By RACHEL MACDONALD<br />

It’s aslow and hot business, on awarm<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> day, taking aconvoy of<br />

tractors and whare up to Oxford for the<br />

last A&P show of the season.<br />

So what better place to take abreak<br />

and wet your whistle than the Cust<br />

Hotel?<br />

The Cust regularly hosts car clubs and<br />

motorcycle groups, but alarge line­up of<br />

tractors is something abit different.<br />

Then there are the whare, especially<br />

the one where the steps are down and<br />

the owner welcoming the curious for a<br />

look inside.<br />

These little travelling cabins are<br />

designed to house their owners during<br />

the harvest or shearing season and cosy<br />

is the name of the game.<br />

In this case, there’s alittle sink space<br />

at the front for aface wash and teeth<br />

clean. Then there’s adouble bed,<br />

complete with apatchwork quilt.<br />

On the other side of the entry door is<br />

the kitchen area, with solid timber<br />

countertops framing the cast iron stove.<br />

It feels abit like stepping back into the<br />

horse­drawn caravans of Enid Blyton’s<br />

Famous Five days.<br />

It’s only aquick stop at the pub though.<br />

Once the beers and soft drinks have hit<br />

the spot, it’s back on the road, trundling<br />

west.<br />

Kaiapoi vPrebbleton<br />

Of all the matches involving <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> teamslast Saturday, it was<br />

the showdown at KaiapoiPark between<br />

the hometeam and Prebbletonwhich<br />

was most likelytohave abearing on the<br />

eventual composition of thetop eight<br />

teamstocontestpost sectionplay in the<br />

<strong>2023</strong> edition of the LuisettiSeeds<br />

Combined rugby competition.<br />

Bothteams did enough to suggest they<br />

will probably be thereatthe business<br />

end of the competition, although<br />

Kaiapoi certainly cannot afford any<br />

repetitions of the defensive lapses<br />

whichlet Prebbleton in for three soft<br />

tries,within the space of five minutes,<br />

midway throughthe firstspell. Kaiapoi<br />

beganwell. Slick passingand hard<br />

running in the first five minutes<br />

suggestedthe team had the stamp of<br />

classabout it.<br />

Prebbleton had to show considerable<br />

resilience to prevent the hometeam<br />

from lodging the first points. Butitwas<br />

the visitors,against the run of the play,<br />

who scored firstwhen its hooker<br />

brushed off two weaktackles. This was<br />

to be asign of worsetocome.Even<br />

proceeded to concede three soft triesin<br />

five minutes,and suddenly was staring<br />

down amassive 7­24 deficit.<br />

Urgedtorectify its attitude and<br />

execution on defence, Kaiapoi<br />

performed muchmore creditablyinthe<br />

second half.<br />

Courtesy of two more triestoits<br />

impressiveNo8,Smith, Kaiapoi closed<br />

the gap to 19­24 with five minutes<br />

remaining.<br />

It again threatened the Prebbleton<br />

line with aseriesofpick and goes, when<br />

Prebbletonpulled off avital 50/22<br />

clearing kick that gave it possession at<br />

the rightend of the field.<br />

Prebbletonproved to be avery<br />

effective unit throughout the match and<br />

pressure wenton.<br />

The McAlpine’s Rangiora player of<br />

the day –Nathan Goodwin, playing at<br />

tries —one either side of half time —<br />

with 50 metreplus runs and the final<br />

The PloughHotelplayer­of­the­day,<br />

minuteswithasolidforward rumble for<br />

The rest of the first half struggledto<br />

gain any real momentum,with both<br />

teams endeavoring to find cohesion<br />

with new combinations finding their<br />

feet. The final play of the first half saw<br />

Glenmark­Cheviot flexits muscleand<br />

was rewardedwith apush overscrum<br />

try to Andrew Hull.<br />

The second half saw the Glenmark<br />

team starting to click immediately, with<br />

Waihora took the win with its dogged<br />

defence in the dying minutesofthe<br />

game helping it to hold on to afour<br />

point lead.<br />

Ohoka got on the scoreboard early<br />

with two penalty goals converted by the<br />

ever accurate Scott Allin. Thegame<br />

then settled into areal battlewith some<br />

great free running rugby played by both<br />

sides.<br />

In the 20th minute Waihora madeits<br />

way to the try line which was converted<br />

to giveitthe lead.Inthe 28th minute<br />

Ohokawas awarded athird penaltyon<br />

half way.Scott Allin had no trouble<br />

putting it betweenthe posts.<br />

Waihora scored an unconverted try<br />

late in the firsthalf to takea12­9 lead<br />

into half time. Waihora scoredtwo<br />

minutes intothe second half,which was<br />

converted to extendits lead, but an<br />

intercept try by Tom Taylor, converted<br />

by Allin, kept Ohoka in the hunt.<br />

Waihora however, moved further<br />

aheadwith apenalty, then scored an<br />

unconverted try.<br />

Ohoka battled hard and was<br />

rewarded with alate try by its half back<br />

Helping <strong>North</strong> Cantabrians take the<br />

Next Step<br />

When times are tough it’s hard to figure out your<br />

next step. Many won’task for help because they<br />

feel shame, or their pride gets in the way.<br />

“That’s one of the lessons we saw during the first<br />

Covid-19 lockdown,” says Waimakariri District<br />

Council Community Development Facilitator<br />

Rachel Thornton.<br />

“There were alot of people out there hurting and<br />

it was aunique period because the lockdowns<br />

caused hardship for people who had never needed<br />

to seek support from social services before.<br />

“This un-guided demand was coupled with asocial<br />

services sector that was geared up and perfectly<br />

placed to help <strong>North</strong> Cantabrians in need, but<br />

there was areluctance from the community to<br />

utilise this help.”<br />

Thiswas the nexus forNextSteps—awebsite<br />

thathousesall <strong>North</strong><strong>Canterbury</strong> social services<br />

information in one place.The sitealso poses<br />

questions to direct peopletothe providerbest suited<br />

fortheir situation —all online andanonymous.<br />

“The reality is that you must be astrong person<br />

to ask for help,” says Rachel. “But we know there<br />

is astigma there and we wanted to remove any<br />

barriers in the way to people getting the support<br />

they need.<br />

“Things like this website, that are innovative<br />

ways to break down barriers that empower our<br />

communities to self-help, are really useful and I<br />

hope will help more people come forward when<br />

they need to.”<br />

Speaking at the launch event on 29 March,<br />

Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon said the website is<br />

agreat resource for the community.<br />

“While the initial shock of Covid-19 is gone we know<br />

this will not be the last event our country faces and<br />

it’s important we learn from previous events.<br />

“Having all this information inone place, with<br />

support specific to <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong>, isafantastic<br />

resource and Iapplaud all our communities’<br />

providers for working together tomake this happen.<br />

“The information is non-threatening, accessible and<br />

provides this information in an empowering way<br />

that will connect with alot of our residents when<br />

they need support.”<br />

New venue ... Adragon boat team heads out for arace on Lake Ruger.<br />

New venueworks<br />

By JOHN COSGROVE<br />

Alast minutecancellation caused by a<br />

toxic algal bloom,spurred the<br />

management team at the Aoraki Dragon<br />

Boat Association to discover an<br />

alternative and closer site to host the<br />

South Island Dragon Boat championship<br />

recently.<br />

The bloom was discoveredby<br />

Environment <strong>Canterbury</strong> in the canals<br />

at their planned venue, Lake Hood, near<br />

Ashburton.<br />

This forced the organisers to look for<br />

an alternativevenue withonly seven<br />

days till competition started.<br />

Event directorMike Robinson said<br />

members hurriedly hit the phones over<br />

the nextfew daysuntil one remembered<br />

asmall irrigation storagelake beside<br />

South EyreRoad in <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong>.<br />

It had been used for the wakasprint<br />

competitionearlier in the year and the<br />

facilitiesfit the bill.<br />

Following acall to GeoffSpark, farmer<br />

and owner of Torlesse Farm, the board<br />

found that while the main purpose of the<br />

lake was for farmirrigation, recreation<br />

also played an important role in it’s<br />

designprocess.<br />

‘‘Whatabeautiful place,’’Mike said.<br />

‘‘LakeRuger was 500m long and five<br />

metresdeep, and while this meant our<br />

500m race would havetobeslightly<br />

shorter, everythingelse on our agenda<br />

could still work.’’<br />

PHOTO: SUPPLIED<br />

After informingall teams of the<br />

changeinvenue, board members rose<br />

early on the Fridaymorning,March 24,<br />

to prepare the site for the weekend’s<br />

racing.<br />

They first moved all the 20 man dragon<br />

boats and equipment fromOwles<br />

Terrace, Lake Rua and KaiapoitoLake<br />

Ruger.<br />

Then race lanes,tent and marquee<br />

sites had to be laid out.<br />

This took all day with manynot<br />

finishing until 10pm.<br />

The teams were back on site at 6.30am<br />

the following morning to set up race HQ<br />

and welcomethe teams from all overthe<br />

country.<br />

Mike said theyran three distancesfor<br />

South Island champ's: 2000m, 500m and<br />

200m and two different boat crews:<br />

20­manand 10s, but both paddled in the<br />

20­manboats.<br />

The South Island Secondary Schools<br />

Challenge was run on Sunday, March 26,<br />

with the Oxford AreaSchool team<br />

retaining the GrandChampionsTrophy.<br />

Associationmember Julie Robinson<br />

said it was greattosee how the dragon<br />

boat communitystepped up on the day<br />

and was happy theyhave found anew,<br />

closervenuetohost events on.<br />

The association’s boatsand teams are<br />

now heading north to take part in the NZ<br />

DragonBoat Association’s national<br />

championship being held at Lake<br />
