be sailing away anytime soon.<br />

The boat is pretty useless without<br />

its sails, rudder and centre board—<br />

items theyleft behind when a<br />

storage shed belonging to the<br />

WaimakaririSailing Club at its<br />

learn­to­sail base just north of<br />

Kaiapoiwas broken into.<br />

The club is now looking at a$2000<br />

bill to replace the boat and buy all<br />

new attachments to fit it out, says<br />

WaimakaririSailing Club<br />

Commodore, SamJones.<br />

‘‘We don’t insure thelittle plastic<br />

boats, but we do insure our bigger<br />

craft.’’<br />

It follows on fromaboat being<br />

stolen from the club’s headquarters<br />

at Kairaki Beach,bythe<br />

AnzacDay services are moving, and this<br />

year’s commemoration in apackedCust<br />

community centre was no exception.<br />

The <strong>Canterbury</strong> PlainsmenBarbershop<br />

Chorus closed the indoor ceremony with a<br />

rousing rendition of God Savethe King.<br />

For some,God Save the Kingharkedback<br />

to their youth.<br />

For many,itwas the first time they had<br />

heardit.<br />

Ron Roberts, who was born in 1937 in<br />

Richmond, Surrey, says it brought back<br />

wonderful memories.<br />

‘‘When Istarted school in 1942,wesang<br />

God Save the Kinginassembly every Monday<br />

morning.<br />

‘‘ At the end of the war, that slowlyfaded<br />

away in the schools, but it was still an<br />

important aspect of many official gatherings<br />

untilKing George passed awayinFebruary<br />

1952,’’ he says. ‘‘I was thrilled to hear the<br />

choirsing it again this year.’’<br />

Ron leftschool in July 1952and joined the<br />

RoyalAir Forceasanaeroplane engineer.<br />

His first base was in Germany,servicing<br />

bombers.<br />

Veronica and Greg Syman, from West<br />

Eyreton, will rememberthis yearasthe first<br />

time theyheardGod Save the King.<br />

They moved to <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> 14<br />

months ago from Tuaranga.<br />

‘‘We werealways taught thatAnzac Day<br />

was aday to honour and respect, and until<br />

last year­shortly after arriving hereand due<br />

to Covid ­ourselves and our children had<br />

nevermissed participating in the events.<br />

‘‘So we were pleased this year to be able to<br />

attend, and decidedonthe Cust service due<br />

to its proximity to home.<br />

‘‘We wereexpectingalow­key<br />

commemoration,sowewere totally<br />

surprised by theorganisation behind the<br />

gatheringand the numberofpeople<br />

attending.’’<br />

They were unprepared for the word<br />

changes in God Save the King.<br />

‘‘I will always remember now whereIwas<br />

on hearing my first rendition of what will<br />

now become aregular happening. It was a<br />

fantastic Remembrance Day.’’<br />

Afeast of colourand patterns in pure<br />

woollen garments and blankets were<br />

presented to formerkiwisoldierTony<br />

Connell, visiting his family in<br />

Christchurch fromthe Ukraine.<br />

Tony, the country director for the<br />

Swiss Foundation for Mine Action, an<br />

NGO whose goal is to clearmines and<br />

unexplodedmunitionsaroundthe<br />

world,will be takingback blankets,<br />

hats, scarves, jerseys,capes, ponchos,<br />

merinobaby garments and more.<br />

They willbeshipped to Poland,then<br />

trucked into Ukrainewhere they are<br />

most needed.<br />

The project was co­ordinated by the<br />

Zonta Club of Waimakaririwith the<br />

support of U3A Rutherford.<br />

The craft group at The Russley<br />

Village, was provided with purewool<br />

donated by many who answered the<br />

call on Facebook, other social media<br />

platforms, and by wordofmouth.<br />

On Tony’slastvisit he wasgiven a<br />

few blankets.<br />

The gift of woollen garments has<br />

grown since the club heard of the<br />

sufferingofsomany people.<br />

Like their grandmothersand great<br />

grandmothersbefore them, today’s<br />

knitters continue to Knit forVictory.<br />

Tony said Mr Putin had under<br />

estimated the resilience of the<br />

Ukrainians, and the determination of<br />

theirPresident, VolodymyrZelensky.<br />

‘‘People are incredibly<br />

compassionate and helpful to those<br />

less fortunate­for example, one side<br />

of an apartment buildingwill be hit<br />

and others in the apartment will take<br />

thosedisplaced into their own homes.<br />

‘‘Thehospitality is justamazing, and<br />

as aresult, the degreeofpride in the<br />

Ukraine has gone through theroof,”<br />

Tony said at the presentation.<br />

He said the recent winter<br />

temperatureswere considered mild<br />

by Ukrainian standards—not below<br />

­15deg Celsius.<br />

But indiscriminate shelling of<br />

civilians in manyareasresultedin no<br />

water, frequent power cuts<br />

necessitating cooking overopen fires,<br />

and constant air raid warningsforcing<br />

residentsfrom what remained of their<br />

homes, meaning keeping warmwas a<br />

constant battle.<br />

‘‘Theitems donated today will be<br />

distributedand receivedwith great<br />

thanks,’’hesaid.<br />

<strong>North</strong><strong>Canterbury</strong> GPs have been<br />

askedtocome up with atemporary<br />

plan for after hours healthcaretomeet<br />

agrowing demand in the region.<br />

With apermanenturgentcareafter<br />

yearsaway from opening, Te Whatu<br />

Ora HealthNew Zealand has invited<br />

localpractises to come up with an<br />

interim plan.<br />

Speakingatapublic meeting at the<br />

Rangiora Baptist Church hall on<br />

Thursdayevening (April 27), Te Whatu<br />

Ora <strong>Canterbury</strong> executivedirector<br />

planning,fundingand decision<br />

support, Tracy Maisey said she had<br />

met with local GPs and paramedic<br />

services.<br />

‘‘I leftitwith them to come back to<br />

me withproposals and we will<br />

consider them.’’<br />

She saidthe numberofWaimakariri<br />

residents using after hours medical<br />

services in Christchurch had<br />

increasedby17percent since 2019.<br />

Ms Maiseyhad earlier received a<br />

3381 signature petition from<br />

WaimakaririMPMatt Dooceycalling<br />

for after hourshealthcare in <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> to be fast­tracked.<br />

Mr Dooceyreminded the morethan<br />

50 people present that the former<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> District Health Board<br />

(CDHB) had promisedthe community<br />

two years ago an after hoursfacility<br />

would be open by late 2022.<br />

‘‘Itisexciting that Health NZ<br />

announcedthat GP practices are going<br />

to be putting aproposal forward for<br />

how after hours servicesmight be<br />

delivered,’’ he saidafter the meeting.<br />

He said he would be keeping in<br />

touch with Te WhatuOra.<br />

If aplan was not in place soon he<br />

would go back to the Health Minister<br />

for answers.<br />

Aprevious petition was presented to<br />

the CDHB in 2019 calling for after<br />

hours healthcare.<br />

The Ministry of Health entered into<br />

an agreement with SouthLink Health<br />

Group two years later.<br />

The GoodStreet MedicalCentre and<br />

Rangiora Family Doctors approached<br />

the CDHB prior to 2019 with a<br />

proposaltooffer after hours<br />

healthcare.<br />

The two practices willmerge to form<br />

the Rangiora Medical Centre, which<br />

willbebased on the Rangiora Health<br />

Hub site.<br />

South Link Health Group is<br />

responsible for funding and<br />

constructing the new facility, which<br />

willinclude full radiology services<br />

(ultrasound, CT and MRI scans), GP<br />

services, apharmacy, and urgent after<br />

hours healthcare.<br />

It is expected to open in early2025.<br />

Bringing people up to speed<br />

By DAVIDHILL,<br />

Local Democracy Reporter<br />

Speeddating with the <strong>May</strong>or is<br />

encouraging peopletoengage in the<br />

Hurunui annual plan.<br />

Mrs Black says she is looking forward to<br />

hearing residents’ views, but admits to<br />

having ‘‘no experience’’ with speeddating.<br />

Three‘‘speed dating’’ sessions are being<br />

offered as part of aseries of public<br />

engagement eventsaround the district this<br />

month.<br />

Hurunui residents can chat with<strong>May</strong>or<br />

MarieBlack at the sessions as part of the<br />

council’s engagement on its <strong>2023</strong>/24annual<br />

plan.<br />

‘‘<strong>May</strong>alwayshas ahefty workload, but it<br />

is agoodopportunity to engagewithour<br />

community,’’she said at Tuesday’s council<br />

meeting.<br />

Chieffinancial officerJason Becksaid<br />

the only major change from the 2021/31<br />

Long TermPlanwas the averageratesrise<br />

of 7.49percent, being higher than the<br />

4.99% signalled.<br />

‘‘The big issue is inflation, particularly<br />

aroundroading, and interest rates.’’<br />

Mr Beck said the council’s debt levels<br />

were higher than anticipated because it<br />

had broughtforward planned Three<br />

Watersprojectstoensureratepayers had<br />

‘‘the best possible waterand sewer<br />

infrastructure’’ ahead of the government’s<br />

reformprogramme.<br />

He saidthe 7.49%rates rise was an<br />

average acrossthe district and he<br />

acknowledged someresidents wouldface<br />

much higher rates rises due to increases in<br />

property values.<br />

In examplesgiveninthe consultation<br />

document, one Hanmer Springs ratepayer<br />

was facinga12.86% ratesrise.<br />

The council was also increasing the<br />

dividend it expected from the Hanmer<br />

Springs Thermal Pools and Spa, as well as<br />

increasing the interest rate chargeonits<br />

loantothe pool.<br />

Cr Tom Daviesquestionswhetheritwas<br />

fairtoexpect Hanmer Springs to carry a<br />

greaterburden.<br />

Chief executive Hamish Dobbie said the<br />

pools dividend was last fixedin2015,<br />

which had allowedfor investment back<br />

intothe pools.<br />

‘‘Wehave made significant investment<br />

intothe pools so the suggestion we are<br />

bleeding the pools dry is wrong. We<br />

actually loweredthe dividend during<br />

Covid whenitlookedlike they weren’t<br />

going to make aprofit.’’<br />

Aromance and familiar songs<br />

REVIEWED BY DAVID HILL<br />

The T­birds and the pink ladies are<br />

back.<br />

Grease is the word as the cast of <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> Musicals’ latest production<br />

take us to the Rydell High School class<br />

of ’59 20­year reunion in the opening<br />

scene.<br />

The memories flow.<br />

There we meet the pink ladies Rizzo<br />

(Ella Berry), Marty (Briar Patrick),<br />

Frenchy (Elizabeth Mullan) and Jan<br />

(Molly­Kate Mullan), and the T­birds<br />

Kenickie (Nick Thatcher), Roger (Angus<br />

Howat), Doody (Leyton Wright) and<br />

Sonny (Liam Tyrrell).<br />

Frenchy introduces the pink ladies to<br />

her new neighbour Sandy Dumbrowski<br />

(Emily Gunn) before the suave Danny<br />

Zuko (Jacob Coxhill) struts on to the<br />

stage.<br />

From there we hear the familiar tale<br />

of Sandy and Danny’s summer romance,<br />

to the classic song Summer Nights.<br />

Soon you will be joining the cast in<br />

singing ‘‘tell me more, tell me more’’.<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> Musicals (NCM)<br />

Summer Nights ... Sandy Dumbrowski<br />

(Emily Gunn) tells the pink ladies about her<br />

summer romance.<br />

PHOTO: SUPPLIED<br />

regular Tegan Patrick is back to direct<br />

the show, and she managed to get the<br />

best out of her cast, with aflawless dress<br />

rehearsal on Monday evening.<br />

Tegan’s first show was back in 2005,<br />

while her sister Briar has been<br />

associated with NCM shows since 2012.<br />

Back then Briar was the same age as<br />

character, Marty, and she looks every bit<br />

the flirty teenager as she attracts the<br />

attention of T­bird boys and local radio<br />

DJ Vince Fontaine (Scott Morrow).<br />

Among the highlights was getting an<br />

old car onstage for alittle Greased<br />

Lightning and the choreography and<br />

school dance.<br />

For those familiar with the classic<br />

show Grease,this performance will<br />

bring back memories ­the style, the<br />

fashion, the scenes and those<br />

unforgettable songs.<br />

Listen in for Grease, Greased<br />

Lightning, Hopelessly Devoted, You’re<br />

The One That IWant and many more.<br />

If you haven’t got tickets already, get<br />

in quick because the season is already<br />

close to asellout, with just afew tickets<br />

has approved aplan presented by<br />

Waimakariri District Councilstaff and<br />

askedstaff to seekmorefunding as part of<br />

Implementation project manager<br />

Duncan Roxborough saidonce the funding<br />

is secured, staff wouldbeginconstructing<br />

the Murphy Parksite,over the summer.<br />

Earthworks and landscapingupgrades<br />

would be completedonce the Kaiapoi<br />

Croquet Club has relocated to the Kaiapoi<br />

CommunityHub. Anew esplanadewalk<br />

also proposed.<br />

St Margaret’s College(Christchurch)and<br />

Privilege to attend<br />

Anzac Day services<br />

It was lovely to see the kids return to<br />

schoollast week after alonger break than<br />

usual with school holidays, Easter and<br />

Anzac Day.<br />

Ithink even the children were happy to<br />

getback and seetheir friendsagain after<br />

what has felt like anotherbusy school<br />

holidays.<br />

As the localMPitwas aprivilege to pay<br />

my respects by attendingand speaking at<br />

Anzac servicesaround the electorate.<br />

What is special to me, when Iattend<br />

these services, is seeing our localstudent<br />

representatives takingpart in the various<br />

Anzac Day services across the<br />

Waimakariri.<br />

Iamalways impressed by our student<br />

leaders who get up and talk so respectfully<br />

at the services each year —well donetoall<br />

those students who did our local schools<br />

proud.<br />

Iwas excited to makemyfirst mental<br />

health policy announcement in<br />

Parliament last week,with National<br />

leaderChristopher Luxon.<br />

The $20 million MentalHealth<br />

Innovation Fund will initially see up to $20<br />

millioninmatching funds distributed to<br />

community mental healthorganisations<br />

who are delivering strong results for Kiwis<br />

in need.<br />

As Itravel round the country, I’veheard<br />

the call for more local solutions, for local<br />

needs,inmental health.<br />

We need to give more support to<br />

innovative community providers like Mike<br />

Kings Gumboot Friday to scale up their<br />

already successful operations.<br />

As the cost­of­livingcrisis continues,<br />

there is growing concern amongmental<br />

healthprofessionals that things are only<br />

going to get worse as financial pressures<br />

build on Kiwi families.<br />

It was fantastic news that the voices of<br />

Waimakariri residents were heard with<br />

the announcementbyHealth NZ that local<br />

This announcement is even more<br />

Residents care about the future in Greater Christchurch<br />

By DAVID HILL,<br />

Local Democracy Reporter<br />

Atotal of 7000 people have provided<br />

feedbackonthe future of Greater<br />

Christchurch.<br />

The recently completed Huihui Mai<br />

engagement by Whakawhanake Kāinga<br />

Komiti (Greater Christchurch Urban<br />

Growth Partnership) sought feedback<br />

from Christchurch, Selwyn and<br />

Waimakariri residents.<br />

The surveycovered issues related with<br />

growth, includingasuggested ‘‘turn up<br />

and go’’ public transportservice(Mass<br />

RapidTransit) route.<br />

Chairperson Jim Palmer said the<br />

survey attracted feedbackacross allage<br />

groups, including more than 1300from<br />

youngpeople agedunder­25, and<br />

showed residents cared aboutthe future<br />

of their city,towns and neighbourhoods.<br />

Therewere responses from 5<strong>04</strong>8<br />

Christchurch and BanksPeninsula<br />

residents, 1396Selwyn district residents<br />

and 493 people living in the Waimakariri<br />

district.<br />

By 2050 more than 700,000people are<br />

projected to be living in the<br />

Christchurch, Selwyn and Waimakariri<br />

districts, a30percent jump on today’s<br />

population. It is expected to top one<br />

million peoplewithinthe next60years.<br />

The regionfaced several challenges<br />

includingaccommodating alarger<br />

population, housing affordability and<br />

respondingtoclimatechange, he said.<br />

The vast majorityofrespondents (86%)<br />

supported focusing the growth around<br />

the key urban and town centres and<br />

along publictransportroutes.<br />

More thanhalf of respondents(53%)<br />

supported the proposed ‘turn up and go’<br />

Mass Rapid Transit route. But those in<br />

Rolleston, east Christchurch, Rangiora<br />

and south Christchurch wanted the route<br />

extended. Therewas also support (56%)<br />

for higher density living, provided it was<br />

well planned and designedtomeet<br />

different needs and provided aquality of<br />

life. Thefeedback will informthe<br />

development of the draft Greater<br />

Christchurch Spatial Plan,which will<br />

provide ablueprint for future growth<br />

HURUNUI NO 1RURAL DRINKING WATER SUPPLY<br />

Upgrade works underway - This intake supplies drinking water to a large rural network incorporating Scargill,<br />

Greta Valley, Motunau Beach and the Hurunui River Mouth. The upgrade involves the construction of anew<br />

water treatment plant -anautomated process plant designed to supply 2,400 m³ per day of drinking water<br />

(status quo rate) reliably and effectively which is compliant with both the New Zealand Drinking Water<br />

Standards and the newly established Drinking Water Quality Assurance Rules. Once the plant is fully<br />

commissioned, the permanent boil water notice is to be removed. Anew 160m2 building will house the new<br />

pumps, chlorine dosing pumps, ultrafiltration systems, anew river water return system and 1ML Reservoir<br />

holding tank. The project is currently in the design stage which is almost complete, enabling the ground<br />

works onsite. The anticipated completion for this project isJanuary 2024.<br />

WETLAND RESTORATION GETS ABOOST<br />

Scargill Motunau Reserve will soon be home to Hurunui District’s largest wetland restoration project, and a<br />

generous private donation will significantly help its cause. Currently penned ‘The Birdsong Project', this<br />

major ecological restoration has scope toeventually restore more than five hectares of land which includes<br />

1.7 kilometres of stream wetland, to native vegetation and also return adjacent flat areas to anative forest.<br />

Environment <strong>Canterbury</strong> will be donating asignificant number ofnatives trees. <strong>May</strong>or Marie Black says the<br />

wetland will beaspecial site toadd to the District’s list, as another area where locals and visitors can make<br />

apoint of stopping off to appreciate what Hurunui naturally has tooffer.<br />

SCHOOL HOLIDAY PROGRAMME AHIT FOR HURUNUI YOUTH<br />

As students headed back to school this week, 63 young people from Hanmer toMtLyford toAmberley could<br />

tick off their holiday aspirations thanks to apacked itinerary delivered bythe Hurunui Youth Programme,<br />

through funding from the Rātā Foundation. The holiday programme’s success was shaped directly by<br />

Hurunui’s young people, with requests to Go Kart in Christchurch, go ice skating, or visit malls.<br />

HDC's Youth Development Officer Jo Sherwood said the District's young people agree Hurunui is agreat<br />

place to live, but lack of transport can be abarrier to accessing recreational facilities young people in urban<br />

areas take for granted. Other school holiday activities included development training to help pass their<br />

Learner Driver theory test.<br />

Young people can follow @hurunuiyouth on social media tokeep informed on upcoming activities, including<br />

Youth Week and Nui Hui Youth Mental Health activities in <strong>May</strong>.<br />

Acelebration of 100 yrs of rugby<br />

TheUnited Rugby FootballClub<br />

celebrates its centenary, acelebration<br />

Waikariregion hadits originsin1883,<br />

when ateamknown as theHawarden<br />

After WorldWar 1, some local<br />

enthusiasts,headed by thelocal<br />

storekeeper, Harry Saundercock,set out<br />

to lead the revivalofthe game.<br />

Anew club was born—the Waikari­<br />

Hawarden United FootballClub.<br />

Even though theclub last fieldedateam<br />

in 2014—the under7s—todaythe club<br />

stillhas an active committeeand<br />

wonderful facilities. It looks forward to<br />

putting on aclub dayfor theHurunui<br />

Club every season.<br />

Last year due to other fields suffering<br />

theeffects of bad weather,United<br />

occasions.<br />

TheUnited Club wasofficiallyformed<br />

in 1921. It remained in the <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong>competition until1924,when<br />

it left to jointhe HurunuiSub­Union.<br />

it until aweekend trip to<br />

World class bowling green in HS<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Ahuge community fundraising effort,<br />

alongwith localcontractors and<br />

volunteersrollinguptheir sleeves and<br />

helping out has ensured HanmerSprings<br />

now has aworld­class all­weather<br />

$450,000 bowling green facility in<br />

Hanmer Springs.<br />

The greenwas officially opened by<br />

<strong>May</strong>orMarie Black on Saturday, and<br />

about64players from as far south as<br />

Ashburton, and northtoKaikoura, tested<br />

out the facility at atournament on<br />

Sunday. Teams of three from visiting<br />

clubswere joined by anovicefrom the<br />

Hanmer Springs Club for the day.<br />

Around 100 guests, including New<br />

Zealand bowlsofficials, joined in the<br />

weekend celebration which represented<br />

four years of toiland perseverancebythe<br />

committee.<br />

President Tina Steele and Janet<br />

Messervy the secretary­treasurer, got the<br />

ballrollingback in 2019 after achat<br />

about the need for anew green.<br />

The firstmeeting was held in<br />

September, 2019, acommittee was<br />

elected, and targets set with an initial<br />

quote of $235,000.<br />

Thisrose dramatically to $346,700 after<br />

products were researched and formal<br />

quotes called for.<br />

Tinasays around $1<strong>04</strong>,000 was raised<br />

in the community, with the figurebeing<br />

boosted by donations and local<br />

volunteers who saved the committee over<br />

$50,000 on the costofcompleting the<br />

build of the green,sheds, paths,and<br />

stone entrancepillars.<br />

Grants totalling $225,000 from the<br />

Mainland Foundation, RataFoundation,<br />

coffers.<br />

Tina says the support from the Hanmer<br />

Springs community, and the wider<br />

community saw acontractsigned off on<br />

July 14, 2021 with Tiger Turf.<br />

The main local contractors —Geoff<br />

Hill Contracting, Richard Campbell<br />

HanmerRocks, Jason Hill, Mark<br />

Donaldson builders and many volunteers<br />

—helped save $85,000 to get the facility<br />

completed.<br />

However in between times, there were<br />

afew issues with the weather.<br />

Wind was the biggest disaster. With the<br />

green nearly completed,but not glued, a<br />

howling wind that ripped through<strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> picked up the green and left<br />

it strewn aroundthe site.<br />

Then the frosts arrived delayingthe<br />

project by another fivemonths.<br />

Tinasays the silver lining was Tiger<br />

Turf, which had to lay anew green, laying<br />

all the old one around the paths of the<br />

greenfree of charge.<br />

‘‘TheHanmer Menz shedhas also been<br />

amazing ­buildingseating and ashed,<br />

saving labour costs,’’ says Tina.<br />

‘‘GraemeMesservyand Jim Sutherland<br />

with afew helpersput up acolour steel<br />

fencesavingus$14,000inlabour costs.<br />

Tina sayswhile an additionalyear was<br />

addedtothe final completion date it<br />

meantthe committee could raise further<br />

funds. However, it still needed<br />

underwriting fromthe HurunuiDistrict<br />

Council on the final sum, so the facility<br />

couldbebuilt.<br />

Vegetation and Wind Storm FAQs<br />

After recent weather events around the country and Winter fast<br />

approaches, it is agood opportunity to remind our network of<br />

how important vegetation maintenanceand general house rules<br />

are 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/network as possible<br />

is that of the 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 withelectrically‘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 thishappensitcan rupture theinsulation<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) is picked 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 of instances 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’ is where vegetation branches areoutside of both<br />

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

sizeand position withrespect to the line/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 may cause.<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 be sent<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 />

Research being fuelled by slash<br />

Universityof<strong>Canterbury</strong> (UC) PhD<br />

studentChichi Zhang is developing<br />

technology and relevant metal oxide<br />

materials to help producegreen<br />

hydrogen from New Zealand’s<br />

abundant supply of woodybiomass.<br />

Woody biomass originatesfrom trees<br />

including stems, branches, barks as<br />

well as forestryslash.<br />

The technology and materials<br />

developed in this project could help<br />

solve the problem of slash wood,<br />

washed away from forests in heavy rain.<br />

Together with wastes from<br />

manufacturing traditional wood<br />

products, it can be used as solid fuelfor<br />

energy or converted to liquid fuels,<br />

gaseousfuels and chemicals through<br />

varioustechnologies.<br />

APhD student in Chemical and<br />

ProcessEngineering, Zhang’s research<br />

centresonhow to convertthe woody<br />

biomassinto ahydrogen­rich gas<br />

productwith increased hydrogen yield.<br />

The thermochemicalprocess adopted<br />

in her researchisknown as chemicalloopingbiomass<br />

steam gasification.<br />

‘‘We’vebeen using temperatures of<br />

up to 1000°C in the process,and by<br />

adding metal oxides, we can enhance<br />

the hydrogen yieldbyover 50 percent.<br />

‘‘Thesemetal oxides can be used<br />

numerous timesinthe chemicalloopingbiomass<br />

process,’’ Zhangsays.<br />

The hydrogen­rich gas produced from<br />

the research will be further processed<br />

to convert other gases, such as carbon<br />

monoxide and methane, to hydrogen<br />

and carbon dioxide.<br />

While the concept of this technology<br />

has been proposed in previous studies,<br />

Zhang has developed anew metal oxide<br />

that has alongeractive life.<br />

‘Metal oxidesare the key for<br />

developingthis technology, but the<br />

common issue is that their lifetime is<br />

often short, which limits the practical<br />

Zhang sayshigh purity hydrogen is a<br />

clean energy carrier, but it doesn’t exist<br />

naturally on earth.<br />

‘‘So, it’s important to producegreen<br />

The logistics of selling raw logs overseas<br />

By RACHEL MACDONALD<br />

Driving throughthe pine plantations<br />

around the country, it’s easy to look at the<br />

trees, but not consider the size of the<br />

forestry.<br />

Ministry of Primary Industry(MPI)<br />

figures show that,asofApril1,2021, New<br />

Zealand had 1,739,971 hectares of wood<br />

undercultivation, largelyinradiata<br />

pine.<br />

This year, MPI estimates those<br />

plantings will be worth around $6.49<br />

billion in exports.<br />

And that’s without taking into account<br />

the timber that will be milled herefor<br />

domestic use.<br />

It’s described as ahigh­volume, but<br />

low­value product, becauseitlargely<br />

leaves our shores unprocessed.<br />

Dependingonwhereit’s grown, our<br />

timber is shipped by truckand/or train to<br />

all of New Zealand’s ports,says aleading<br />

shippingindustryspokesperson.<br />

Thoserange from MarsdenPoint in the<br />

north, to Invercargill in the deepsouth.<br />

The Port of Tauranga caters for many<br />

of the logs coming out of the central<br />

<strong>North</strong>Island, with capacity for truck and<br />

trailer deliveries, and six to eight trainloadsaday.<br />

“Also, depending on wherethe pricing<br />

is leaning, about half of whatwegrow<br />

staysonshore and is processedinto<br />

building materials.<br />

‘‘Some of thatisexported to Australia<br />

as afinishedproduct,’’ she says.<br />

‘‘Therest leaves the country as raw<br />

logs,with our biggest client being<br />

China.’’<br />

When the logs reach the port, the<br />

exporter engagesamarshalling<br />

company.<br />

By then, most logs have been through a<br />

processing plant, have been laser<br />

scanned for grading, and chopped to<br />

order, so the marshalling company<br />

Loading up ... The stow Egret River being loaded at Wellington.<br />

knows what’sonits way.<br />

Most trailer­loads containthe same<br />

grade of log to make processing easier.<br />

Each log is then scaled to determine its<br />

volume and tagged with abarcode.<br />

‘‘There’s ahuge amount of paperwork<br />

that has to be completed.<br />

‘‘Logs are inspectedfor quality and<br />

bugs, for example, so the phyto­sanitary<br />

certificates can be completed to ensure<br />

they meet the quarantine requirements<br />

of the country of destination.<br />

‘‘Then,once the timber is loaded, there<br />

are the bills of loading and the invoicing,<br />

which set in train the banking and<br />

BRAND EARTHMOVING<br />

Rangiora<br />

payment process.’’<br />

Loading each export vessel is afinely<br />

tunedart, she says.<br />

‘The logs are stacked on trailers,which<br />

pull up alongside the ship, where they<br />

are liftedinto the hold.From there, it’s<br />

like putting together ajigsaw puzzle, to<br />

make sureevery available space is<br />

maximised.’’<br />

Once the holdsare full, their covers<br />

are dropped and the job of stacking the<br />

decksand strappingdown the piles of<br />

timber gets under way.<br />

‘‘In four days, working 24/7, we can get<br />

35,000 sqm of logs on to aship.<br />

Forest<br />

Management Ltd<br />

‘‘That cargo has to be constantly<br />

assessed throughout loading though,<br />

with the total weight dependingonthe<br />

vessel,but also on where the logs are<br />

from and where they’regoing.<br />

‘‘<strong>North</strong>Island logstend to be lighter<br />

than South Island ones, and we also need<br />

to consider the shipping route. Logswill<br />

take on water through the tropics, for<br />

example, which will affect theirweight.’’<br />

The end result is an important<br />

country, and one that keeps aconstant<br />

Winter feed in the A&P spotlight<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Winter feed, hay and silage will be<br />

showcased at the annual <strong>North</strong>ern A&P<br />

Association’s winterfeed competition<br />

from <strong>May</strong> 23 to <strong>May</strong> 26.<br />

Entries are now open.<br />

Winterfeed is the first to come under<br />

the microscope on Tuesday, <strong>May</strong> 23, and<br />

Wednesday, <strong>May</strong> 23.<br />

It will be followed by the hay and<br />

silage competition on <strong>May</strong> 26.<br />

All types of crops, on different soil<br />

types, dryland and irrigated will be in<br />

the spotlight.<br />

No two seasons are the same, with this<br />

year delivering avery wet December,<br />

making kale establishment challenging.<br />

An organiser, Will Bailey says this was<br />

followed by some more normal January<br />

and early February summer heat.<br />

However in mid­February the rain<br />

returned, and ‘‘it feels like it has hardly<br />

stopped since’’.<br />

‘‘However it’s not only moisture that<br />

grows crops. There has been times when<br />

sunshine has definitely been lacking.<br />

‘‘With all the moisture the difference<br />

between dryland and irrigated winter<br />

feed crops this year is likely to be very<br />

little,’’ he says.<br />

The winter feed judging tour starts<br />

from Farmlands on Flaxton Road,<br />

leaving at 8.15am each day.<br />

Takahanga tennis courts<br />

to be restored as multi-use<br />

By DAVID HILL,<br />

Local Democracy Reporter<br />

The Kaikōura District Council<br />

has decided to go ahead with a<br />

two­level solution to restore the<br />

quake­damaged Takahanga<br />

tennis courts.<br />

Councillors voted to restore the<br />

courts as multi­use community<br />

courts, while retaining the<br />

existing two levels, at acouncil<br />

meeting on Wednesday, April 26.<br />

Community services manager<br />

Susi Haberstock said council staff<br />

had been consulting with Te<br />

Rūnanga oKaikōura, local sports<br />

clubs and Sport Tasman since last<br />

year.<br />

‘‘We are here today because we<br />

have not had aclear consensus<br />

from the sports clubs, but we need<br />

to make adecision.’’<br />

The project was expected to<br />

cost around $200,000.<br />

The council has a$143,000<br />

Lotteries earthquake grant from<br />

the Department of Internal<br />

Affairs, and is adding $25,000<br />

from its ‘‘Better Off’’ grant.<br />

But the DIA funding needed to<br />

be spent by June 30.<br />

Any additional funds would be<br />

raised by the Kaikōura<br />

Community Charitable Trust, on<br />

behalf of the sports clubs.<br />

Cr John Diver, who has been<br />

negotiating with the sports clubs,<br />

said it was council­owned land, so<br />

the courts were the council’s<br />

responsibility.<br />

‘‘We need to get on and do<br />

because it is an eyesore and a<br />

danger to the public.’’<br />

The two­level solution would<br />

provide enough area for three<br />

tennis courts and three netball<br />

courts, with the top level being<br />

extended.<br />

It was expected to be available<br />

for netball for five months of the<br />

year, with tennis players having<br />

NC SPORTS RESULTS<br />

priority for the rest of the year.<br />

It would also be available for<br />

basketball, Cr Diver said.<br />

The Kaikōura Rugby Club,<br />

which was also based at<br />

Takahanga Domain, had agreed<br />

to provide storage facilities for<br />

the Kaikōura Netball Club and<br />

local tennis players in its<br />

clubrooms.<br />

The councillors requested a<br />

‘‘letter of understanding’’ be<br />

signed between the sports clubs<br />

and the council.<br />

Hurunui lead throughout, but Woodend<br />

remained in touch until 10 minutesinto<br />

the second half.<br />

Played at Woodend’s Gladstone Park,<br />

Hurunui’s Kyle McKenzie kicked a<br />

penaltyafter onlythree minutes and<br />

added another 10 minutes later.<br />

For much of the first quarterHurunui<br />

starvedWoodend of ball and territory.<br />

When Woodend finally manufactureda<br />

chancetoattack the Hurunui line it lost<br />

the ball when atry seemed imminent.<br />

McKenzie duly kicked another penalty for<br />

the visitors before Jordie Swainekicked<br />

two superblong­ range penalties to get<br />

Woodend on the board.<br />

Fiveminutes before half time,hooker<br />

Cale Dobby scored Hurunui’s first try<br />

following adrive from aline out near the<br />

Woodend goal line.<br />

The seal was effectively stamped on the<br />

final outcome 10 minutes into the second<br />

half when Hurunuiagain drove from a<br />

lineoutand FlynnCrean was awarded the<br />

try.<br />

Following the conversion Hurunuiheld<br />

a21­6lead.<br />

McKenzie kickedhis third penalty<br />

midway through the spell,before fullback<br />

Digby Heard entered the back line near<br />

the Woodend line, and running on an<br />

angle scored without ahand being laid on<br />

him.<br />

With only two minutes remaining<br />

wingerAndrew Murdoch scored after the<br />

ball was swung freely through the back<br />

race for the ball.<br />

The tall figure of FlynnCrean was a<br />

Glenmark­Cheviot v<br />

Ohoka<br />

Undeterred by its stuttering starttothe<br />

<strong>2023</strong> combined competition, the<br />

Glenmark­Cheviotfaithful turned out in<br />

droves for GlenmarksClub Day and were<br />

rewarded with ahard­earnedwin overa<br />

valiant Ohoka side.<br />

The localshad the best of the early<br />

encounters, and put points on the board<br />

when Jordie Gray, playing at first­five,<br />

carved through some uncommitted Ohoka<br />

defencetoscore. Fullback Archie<br />

McBrideadded the extras.<br />

While the Glenmark­Cheviot forwards<br />

gained the lions share of the possession,<br />

some outstandinggoal­kickingfrom Scott<br />

Allin, who is arguably the most consistent<br />

goal­kicker in the competition, kept the<br />

visitors within striking distance, so that<br />

when Ohoka left winger George Smith<br />

scored in the corneronthe cusp of halftime<br />

it gave Ohoka a14­10 lead.<br />

Probablyannoyed thattheir first­half<br />

efforts were not really reflected on the<br />

scoreboard, the Glenmark­Cheviot<br />

forwardsrolleduptheir sleeveswith a<br />

sense of renewed determination.<br />

This time they wererewarded —<br />

hooker, Nic Hyde, prop Harrison Allan<br />

and lock, Hamish Gibb —all of whom had<br />

all been amongtheir teams most<br />

industrious forwards,all scored on the<br />

back of typically effective Glenmark­<br />

Cheviot driving play, two of them from<br />

lineout drives.<br />

To its credit, Ohoka stormedback in the<br />

last 10 minutes of the match, in particular<br />

with some effective scrimmaging.<br />

It was significant thatthis period<br />

coincidedwith the insertion of astrong<br />

scrimmager in Vaughan McGiffert off the<br />

bench, and the returnofthe impressive<br />

Tom Taylor from the sin­bin.<br />

Eventually this renaissance was<br />

rewardedwhen Taylor scored right on the<br />

full time hooter to earn Ohoka abonus<br />

point, but it was too little too late as<br />

Glenmark­Cheviot ran out the winners by<br />

27­24.<br />

The whole Glenmark­Cheviot forward<br />

pack laid the platform for its teams<br />

success while wingers Matt Earl and Matt<br />

Holmes looked dangerous with limited<br />

opportunities.<br />

For Ohoka, lock Max Lines and prop<br />

Connor McKinnonimpressed for Ohoka<br />

and its coaches will be hopingthat the leg<br />

injurysuffered by Scott Allin is not as<br />

serious at it seemed.<br />

Kaiapoi vOxford<br />

It was abeautifulday for running rugby at<br />

KaiapoiOvaland the home side took full<br />

advantageofthis running in 13 tries to<br />

Oxford’s 2.<br />

The signs were ominousfrom the<br />

opening kick off as Oxford droppedthe<br />

ball, and from the ensuing scruma<br />

grubberthroughfor right wing Reuben<br />

Tiweka meantKaiapoiled 5­nil after just<br />

aminute of play.<br />

Oxfordhit back immediately though<br />

when Kaiapoi lost the ball in midfield, and<br />

abreakaway ledtoleft wingSam Fleming<br />

dotting downinthe corner.<br />

That’s all the luck Oxford would have for<br />

awhile.<br />

Asecond try to Tiweka and tries to Leo<br />

McConchie, Dante Love, Zac Andrews,<br />

Jacob Hurring and Kafu Misiuata,along<br />

with 4conversionstoTaine Jacobs­<br />

Lawson meantKaiapoi was running hot at<br />

half time,leading 43­5.<br />

There was no let up in the second half<br />

and after just 2minutes left wing David<br />

Cook wasonthe scoresheet.<br />

Kaiapoi was able to march down the<br />

field with relative ease, and the tries kept<br />

coming.Prop Nathan Cassidy­Richards<br />

was the next to score, beforeOxford was<br />

able to capitalise from ascrum and Jesse<br />

Houstonscampered down the right<br />

touchline, breaking defenders to score,<br />

which was converted by Matthew Roberts.<br />

But Kaiapoi would finish the game<br />

strongest, and in the last 20 minutes a<br />

secondtry to McConchieand Misiuata and<br />

one to Sid Coster and Luka Tootoo along<br />

with fullback Lance Taylors 5conversions<br />

saw the final scoreasawhopping 83­12.<br />

It was atimely return to the team for<br />

Love and Tootoowho have been out with<br />

injury.<br />

There were many standout performers<br />

on the day for Kaiapoi, whoseattention<br />

now turns to the Deans Shield match<br />

againstSaracens next week.<br />

This doubles as Kaiapoi’s Club Day and<br />

captainJacobHurrings 100th appearance.<br />

It promises to be acracking game.<br />
