Huge economic<br />

boost possible<br />

By DAVID HILL,<br />

Local Democracy Reporter<br />

ProtectingOxford’s nightsky<br />

couldbring $4.6 millioninto the<br />

Waimakariri district’s<br />

economy, according to an<br />

economic impact report.<br />

Areport commissioned by<br />

Enterprise <strong>North</strong><strong>Canterbury</strong>,<br />

the Waimakariri and Hurunui<br />

District Councils’economic<br />

development arm, says adark<br />

sky reservecouldgenerate $4.6<br />

million in extra visitor<br />

spending and create up to 24<br />

jobs,ifitwas properly<br />

promoted.<br />

Enterprise <strong>North</strong><strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

business support manager<br />

MilesDaltonsays the report<br />

was prepared by Benje<br />

Patterson, who has worked<br />

with the Mackenzie Dark Sky<br />

Reserve in Tekapo.<br />

It was commissioned to<br />

support the Oxford Area School<br />

Observatoryinits efforts to<br />

garner community support in<br />

applyingfor dark sky reserve<br />

status.<br />

‘‘There is ahuge amount of<br />

potential for working with<br />

otherdistricts to create adark<br />

sky trail and ChristchurchNZ<br />

has shownaninterest in<br />

funding the promotion of it,’’<br />

Mr Dalton says.<br />

The reportsays the prospect<br />

of a<strong>Canterbury</strong> dark sky trail,<br />

linking Oxford,Tekapo,<br />

Methven, the SaintJames<br />

Conservation Areainthe<br />

Hurunui district and Kaikōura,<br />

couldgenerate $45.8million to<br />

the regionfrom darksky<br />

travellers. Mr Dalton said the<br />

figures were based on the<br />

experience of the Mackenzie<br />

Dark Sky Reserve.<br />

Oxford AreaSchool<br />

Observatoryvolunteer Raul<br />

Elias­Drago has announced the<br />

observatory is working the<br />

Department of Conservation to<br />

apply to the International Dark<br />

Sky Association for dark sky<br />

park statusfor the 11,350<br />

hectare Oxford Forest<br />

Conservation Area.<br />

The ultimate goalistoapply<br />

for darksky reserve status, with<br />

community support,toinclude<br />

the townwhere the observatory<br />

is based.<br />

Mr Dalton said the project<br />

would seek support in next<br />

year’s2024/34Waimakariri<br />

Long Term Plan, but would not<br />

be seeking fundingfrom the<br />

council at this stage.<br />

Some provisions have<br />

already been included to<br />

protect Oxford’s nightsky in<br />

the proposed Waimakariri<br />

DistrictPlan and further<br />

changes may be needed to<br />

completedark sky reserve<br />

status.<br />

‘‘It is about restoring and<br />

preserving Oxford’s dark sky,’’<br />

Mr Dalton says.<br />

But Oxford would not be left<br />

in the dark,hesays. Good<br />

lightingpoliciescould reduce<br />

light pollution, improve<br />

melatoninlevelsinhumans<br />

and improveanimalwelfare.<br />

‘‘As Raulsays, ‘it is about<br />

betterliving through better<br />

lighting’,’’ Mr Dalton says.<br />

Sportsclubs will still be able to<br />

do their sport at nightand<br />

peoplecan stillbeout on the<br />

streets.’’ Feedback from<br />

businesses indicated there was<br />

general support for the<br />

concept. ‘‘Somebusinesses are<br />

concerned about how it might<br />

effectthem, so there is still abit<br />

to workthrough,’’hesaid.<br />

Woodend couple battle to stay<br />

By DAVID HILL,<br />

Local Democracy Reporter<br />

Woodend is rallying behindalocal couple<br />

facingthe prospect of deportation from<br />

the <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> town.<br />

An online petition supportingMichael<br />

Yan and Zora Gu, owners of Woodend’s<br />

Grub Hub Café ,has already attracted<br />

nearly4000 signaturessince it was<br />

launched last week.<br />

The couple arrived in New Zealand<br />

from China on Work Visas eight years ago.<br />

Ms Gu boughtthe Grub Hub Cafein2017<br />

and the couple has made theirmark with<br />

their hospitality and their support for the<br />

community, including sponsoring the<br />

Woodend Rugby Club and Woodend<br />

School.<br />

DuringCovid, Ms Gu decided to apply<br />

for aStudent Visa to study at Ara Institute<br />

of <strong>Canterbury</strong> to gain qualifications to<br />

improve her employment prospects, and<br />

that was when things began to go pearshaped.<br />

When they appliedtorenewtheir Visas<br />

earlier this year,they weredeclined due<br />

to ‘‘complications’’, leavingthem in limbo<br />

while they await an appeal.<br />

Woodend Community Association<br />

chairperson Mark Paterson says the<br />

coupleare valued members of the<br />

community.<br />

‘‘I come in here with my familyinthe<br />

weekends and Michael knows what I<br />

drink,what my wifedrinks and what the<br />

children drink and he writes theirnames<br />

on theircups.<br />

‘‘On Mothers’ Day we came in and they<br />

had alittlecake wrappedupfor my wife,<br />

Rachel.<br />

‘‘The cafeisaplace for people to get<br />

togetherand theymake you feel<br />

welcome.’’<br />

Mr Wan saysthe couple is humbled by<br />

the community’s outpouringofsupport.<br />

‘‘We love beinghere, we loveour<br />

beloved community, we love the people<br />

who came to us and hugged us.<br />

‘‘We love this peaceful and friendly<br />

country.’’<br />

Mr Patersonhad written aletter in<br />

support of the Visa renewal application,<br />

and when he heard it had beendeclined<br />

he decided to take action.<br />

‘‘Mikey and Zorathought they had it<br />

under control,but there arepossibly<br />

things theydidn’t followcorrectly, and<br />

there was advice thatpossibly wasn’t the<br />

bestadvice,and now they are looking at<br />

not havingtheir Visa renewed.’’<br />

Waimakariri MP Matt Doocey was<br />

approached forhelp and an online<br />

petition was launched in support of the<br />

couple last week. Apaperpetition is also<br />

available.<br />

‘‘Itsoon became clear theyhave an<br />

enormous level of localsupport,’’ Mr<br />

Doocey says. ‘‘Asthe local MP, Istand<br />

behind hard­working business owners like<br />

Michael and Zora who make areal<br />

positive differenceintheircommunity.’’<br />

He was garneringlocalsupporttoassist<br />

the couple, andtheirlawyer,inpreparing<br />

an appealtopresenttothe appropriate<br />

government minister.<br />

Labour ListMPDan Rosewarne, who<br />

lives in Woodend, saysthe couple were<br />

‘‘key people’’ in the local community.<br />

He said he was happy to assist Mr<br />

Doocey in progressinganappeal.<br />

Woodend School principalAndrew<br />

Retallicksays the school is right behind<br />

the couple.<br />

‘‘They are great supporters of the school<br />

and Michael coaches basketballfor us.<br />

‘‘Ourstaffgothere for coffees, and<br />

supportthem because they are just so<br />

supportive of us, and Ihope everything<br />

worksout for them.’’<br />

Localbusiness owner Angela Harris and<br />

localresident Tom Tamati were regular<br />

customers.‘‘They are so generous and they<br />

genuinely care,’’ Ms Harris says.<br />

‘‘I don’t knowthe background,but when<br />

you see good people struggling and going<br />

through thisstuff, it is sad to see,’’ Mr<br />

Tamati says.<br />

An Immigration New Zealand<br />

spokesperson saidthe agencycould not<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

Rangiora Town Hall Cinemas is<br />

celebrating Matariki with the screening<br />

of Coco Reo Māori.<br />

The adaptation of Disney’s popular<br />

2017 computer­animated fantasy film<br />

Coco has been given atereo Māori<br />

voiceover by Kiwi actors and will screen<br />

at Rangiora Town Hall Cinemas<br />

tomorrow (<strong>July</strong> 14) and Saturday.<br />

Coco Reo Māori, which has English<br />

subtitles, was produced in New Zealand<br />

by Matewa Media, an Auckland multimedia<br />

company established in 2017 to<br />

promote te reo Māori, the Māori culture<br />

and indigenous stories.<br />

The company has adapted three other<br />

popular animated films for Disney<br />

including Moana Reo Māori, The Lion<br />

and they are now calling for auditions to<br />

produce Encanto Reo Māori.<br />

Rangiora Town Hall Cinemas owner<br />

Jeremy Stewart said The Lion King Reo<br />

Māori and Frozen Reo Māori have all<br />

previously been screened at the theatre.<br />

these films to preserve the Māori<br />

language along with promoting Māori<br />

culture,’’ he says.<br />

The film is available for the general<br />

public, private screenings and school<br />

groups. More screen times could be<br />

added if school groups were interested<br />

in seeing the film, Jeremy says.<br />

ACC may cover eating disorder at centre<br />

An eatingdisorder treatment centre in<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> has been contracted to<br />

cover full residential eating disorder<br />

services under ACC Sensitive claims.<br />

Recovered LivingNZ(RLNZ), New<br />

Zealand’s first charitableeating disorder<br />

centre, offers aresidential treatment<br />

programme.<br />

It opened its doorsinMay to meet the<br />

urgent need for specialised,full<br />

continuum eating disorder treatment in<br />

New Zealand.<br />

To qualify for ACC, the eating disorder<br />

must be covered as amental injury under<br />

the sensitiveclaim.<br />

Director of RLNZ Kristie Amadio says<br />

although ACC adviseditcan not guarantee<br />

an enquiry will result in direct referral for<br />

funding,itisastart.<br />

If people have an eatingdisorder that is<br />

coveredunder asensitiveclaim, and<br />

would like to request fundingfor RLNZ<br />

services, they can contact their ACC<br />

Recovery team member to start the<br />

process.<br />

Kristie says this first step makes eating<br />

disorder treatment more accessiblefor<br />

Kiwis.<br />

‘‘This contractisafantasticopportunity<br />

for those who need our service, and I<br />

stronglyencourage those who are eligible,<br />

to apply.’’<br />

She says once contact has been made<br />

with ACC, people should let Recovered<br />

Living know by emailing admissions@rlnz.<br />

org so it can manage positions on its<br />

New Zealand wide ruralcrime data<br />

from 2019, to helpits response to rural<br />

crime.<br />

The Rural Crime Prevention Trial, in<br />

the Waimakariri and Hurunui Districts,<br />

has shown most burglaries on rural<br />

properties happen in yards, sheds and<br />

garages, whereitems suchastrailers,<br />

bikes,tools, fuel and firewood are<br />

stolen.<br />

The aim of the app is to lift public<br />

It can be downloaded on to a<br />

smartphone,and allows users to alert<br />

had been filedonit.<br />

The app has shown that 20 percent of<br />

rural burglaries are happening when<br />

someone is at home or out on their<br />

Expo ahuge success<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

Waimakariri’s largest visual<br />

annual art show, the Kaiapoi<br />

Art Expo, has again attracted<br />

large crowds to the river<br />

town.<br />

The exhibition opened last<br />

Friday evening with people<br />

queueing to get the first look<br />

at the work of 142 artists on<br />

show at the Kaiapoi Club,<br />

and the large crowds<br />

continued on Saturday and<br />

Sunday.<br />

It was arecord­breaking<br />

event again in terms of the<br />

number of artists and work<br />

sold, which gave the event’s<br />

organisers, the Waimakariri<br />

Arts Trust (WAT), an<br />

extremely busy few days.<br />

‘‘Gosh, what aweekend,’’<br />

chairwoman Jackie Watson<br />

said.<br />

‘‘The people just kept<br />

coming with abig proportion<br />

of first­time attendees, so<br />

many favourable comments<br />

all weekend.<br />

‘‘There was an incredible<br />

70 per cent of artists selling<br />

276 artworks, totalling<br />

$67,227.’’<br />

The guest artist at this<br />

year’s exhibition was<br />

Mandeville’s Sam Young,<br />

who paints mainly in enamel<br />

spray, using avariety of<br />

techniques and is inspired<br />

by his love of nature.<br />

This year's People's Choice<br />

favourite was The Rust<br />

Coloured Blanket, an oil<br />

painting by Rangiora artist<br />

Jane Reid, which was not for<br />

sale.<br />

It is the second time Jane’s<br />

work has won the People’s<br />

Choice vote at the art expo.<br />

‘‘Her painting was done<br />

from aphoto given to her by<br />

afriend, and she is gifting<br />

her the painting,’’ Jackie<br />

said.<br />

Alongside the main<br />

exhibition, there was ‘‘a<br />

fantastic display’’ of artwork<br />

from 18 Waimakariri<br />

schools. Rebekah Hussey, of<br />

Rangiora New Life School,<br />

was this year’s School Art<br />

Expo winner.<br />

This year’s Art Expo was<br />

the last for Theresa Smith in<br />

her role as the WAT coordinator.<br />

‘‘Theresa has managed the<br />

event for the last decade,’’<br />

Jackie said.<br />

‘‘Her attention to detail<br />

has ensured its success, and<br />

she has left very big shoes to<br />

fill.’’<br />

Helping migrants to hit the road<br />

Karl Nino Catabay is looking<br />

forward to exploring his new<br />

home of Hurunui District by<br />

car.<br />

But for migrant<br />

newcomers like Catabay, the<br />

first challenge to getting<br />

behind the wheel is passing<br />

the theory test for his<br />

Learners Licence — an<br />

intimidating barrier for even<br />

English­first language<br />

aspiring drivers.<br />

Catabay is one of 12<br />

migrant newcomers taking<br />

advantage of the Hurunui<br />

District Council's Hurunui<br />

Community Driver Mentor<br />

Programme.<br />

The first of four sessions<br />

was held last week in<br />

Culverden in partnership<br />

with Tim Hartnell from<br />

Proactive Drive Charitable<br />

Trust. Hurunui District<br />

Council’s Driver Programme<br />

co­ordinator Emma<br />

Feathery says the<br />

programme helps potential<br />

drivers to pass the theory<br />

test for their Learners<br />

Licence.<br />

For Jade Velmonte, the<br />

evening got the thumbs up.<br />

‘‘It was agreat session —a<br />

lot better than what Ihave<br />

attended back home. It was<br />

full of helpful information.’’<br />

Mr Hartnell says the<br />

sessions break down the<br />

theory into practical<br />

modules with real­life<br />

scenarios. ‘‘This helps with<br />

understanding the<br />

importance of road safety<br />

and why we have road rules,<br />

and that it’s not about parrot<br />

learning alot of information<br />

but really getting to grips<br />

with how these impact safety<br />

on our roads,’’ he says.<br />

Villain steals show<br />

Who doesn’t like agood villain?<br />

Sherlock had the title role,<br />

whileDrWatson was the<br />

storyteller;but it was master<br />

villain ProfessorJames<br />

Moriarty (aka Rebecca<br />

O’Mahony)who stolethe show in<br />

the Hartley School of<br />

Performing Arts senior and<br />

intermediate production last<br />

week.<br />

Or at least it seemed thatway<br />

when the final scene began in<br />

Sherlock at the Rangiora Town<br />

Hall.<br />

In the previousscene Rebecca<br />

O’Mahony had led astunning<br />

performance of the Talking<br />

Headssong‘‘Psycho Killer’’, and<br />

then as the finalscene began all<br />

threeSherlocks lay dead­or<br />

leastthat’s how it appeared.<br />

But this showhad more twists<br />

and turns thanacheapgarden<br />

hose.<br />

Well­known writer /director<br />

Paul Johnson put his own spin<br />

on the tale of the famous<br />

consulting detective.<br />

It seemed appropriatethe<br />

opening and closing number was<br />

the Dead or Alive song ‘‘You<br />

Spin Me Round’’.<br />

He stitched together three<br />

apparently distinct mysteries,<br />

each withits own Sherlock, and<br />

Dr Watson on the case.<br />

It neatly intertwined them in<br />

the finalscene for one final<br />

twist.<br />

All threeSherlocks burstback<br />

into life to revealMoriarty as the<br />

mastermind behind all three<br />

mysteries­the not­so haunted<br />

houndofthe Baskervilles,a<br />

murder thatwasn’tinscarlet,<br />

and ascandalthat wasn’t in<br />

The show centred around the<br />

three Dr Watsons (aka Lee<br />

Pockson, Georgia Foulds and<br />

Vaea Syddall) seamlessly<br />

recounting stories of theirtime<br />

assisting the great consulting<br />

detective(s) in solving some of<br />

the great mysteries.<br />

The interaction of the three<br />

Sherlocks(aka Madeleine<br />

Douglas, Oliver Burns and Lucas<br />

Waghorn)was equally seamless<br />

as one story was weavedinto the<br />

next to keep the audience<br />

enthralled to the end.<br />

Through ‘‘observation and<br />

deduction’’, the Sherlocks<br />

solvedeach mystery, before the<br />

bumbling assortment of<br />

characters even hadtime to<br />

realise what washappening<br />

aroundthem.<br />

Watsonand their guests in line,<br />

while young rascals Wiggins<br />

(aka Matilda Fauth)and the<br />

Special mention must also be<br />

made of the hound (a dance<br />

OPINION<br />

6 The <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> <strong>News</strong>, <strong>July</strong> <strong>13</strong>, <strong>2023</strong><br />

Mayor Marie Black<br />

Concerns about<br />

rushing legislation<br />

Many of youwillhave followed with<br />

interest the progress of the Water<br />

ServiceEntities(WSE) Amendment<br />

Bill which had its first readinginthe<br />

houseonJune 22.<br />

It has nowbeenreferred to the<br />

Governance and Administration<br />

Select committee with submissions<br />

closing<strong>July</strong> 5.<br />

TheHurunui District Council has<br />

continued to advocate for<br />

ratepayers through the select<br />

committee process, and last week<br />

the CEO and Ifurther addressed the<br />

issues as we view it from a district<br />

perspective.<br />

TheSelect Committee consisted of<br />

chair Ian McKelvie aformer Mayor<br />

of Manawatu, andmember of the<br />

National Party, one other National<br />

member, two Labour party members<br />

and one from the Greens.<br />

We had 10 minutes to address the<br />

committee followed by questions<br />

from thecommittee.<br />

Thetiming is tight as the house<br />

rises at the end of August, but it<br />

appears the Billwill be passed along<br />

with the RMABill before thistime.<br />

These aretwo pieces of significant<br />

legislation with equally significant<br />

impacts on communities.<br />

In essence the WSEBill creates 10<br />

entities, proposing<strong>Canterbury</strong>and<br />

the West Coast will form one entity.<br />

Butgiven thecentral government<br />

election in October is less than 100<br />

days away, the question needs to be<br />

asked should the reform be rushed<br />

or are the changes to thelegislation<br />

superficial, andwill do nothing to<br />

change theconcerns of takingthe<br />

community assets with no<br />

compensation,oraddresseffective<br />

removal of control and influence of<br />

communities.<br />

Amuch wiser approach would be<br />

to leverage cross party support for<br />

an enduring solution that works for<br />

all, thatwillensure our<br />

communities have arealsay in the<br />

planning and delivery of critical<br />

infrastructure, and reduce the<br />

likelihood forplanning decisions to<br />

be made by adistantbody.<br />

Anotherissue that we believe<br />

remains unresolved throughthe Bill<br />

is the allocation of the management<br />

of stormwater given that thedraft<br />

legislation provides that WSE’s will<br />

be responsible for urban<br />

stormwater,but not for rural, nor<br />

urban stormwater that is situated in<br />

the roading corridor.<br />

Given that some stormwater<br />

systems traversebothrural and<br />

urban areas,and our case like many<br />

others,the same system maycross<br />

rural and urban boundaries on<br />

multiple occasions. We have<br />

continuedtoraise the anomaly as<br />

there may be a tendency to waste<br />

resourcesdeterminingwho is<br />

responsible for which activities.<br />

‘‘Everything in housing is connected,<br />

‘‘Our populationisnow 70,000and we<br />

‘‘I have beenmeeting withcouncils<br />

The <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> <strong>News</strong>, <strong>July</strong> <strong>13</strong>, <strong>2023</strong><br />

NC Mayors call for apause on water reform<br />

By STAFF REPORTERS<br />

Two <strong>North</strong><strong>Canterbury</strong> Mayorsare<br />

calling on the Government to ‘‘push<br />

pause’’ on Three Waters reform.<br />

Hurunui MayorMarie Black says<br />

thereisnoneed to rush the Water<br />

ServicesEntities AmendmentBill<br />

through, with lessthan 100 days until<br />

the election.<br />

She saysifthe government is reelected<br />

in October it would be able to<br />

progress the preferred options of the<br />

remaining Bill quicklywith the<br />

support of aclear electoral mandate.<br />

‘‘If there is achange in government,<br />

it would not have to repeal<br />

legislation passed prior to the<br />

election,’’ she says.<br />

Meanwhile Waimakariri Mayor<br />

Dan Gordon told the Governance and<br />

Administration Select Committee<br />

hearing last Friday, the Government<br />

needs to ‘‘pause and seeka<br />

mandate’’, before proceeding any<br />

further withits controversial<br />

Affordable Water reform programme.<br />

They werespeaking to the<br />

Communities 4Local Democracy<br />

(C4LD)/He hapori mō te Manapori<br />

submissiononthe Government’s<br />

Water Services Entities Amendment<br />

Bill.<br />

‘‘ThisBill shouldn’t go ahead<br />

because it’sbased on flawed<br />

assumptions, models not suitablefor<br />

New Zealand, andthere’s no<br />

mandate from Kiwis nationwide,’’ Mr<br />

Gordonsays.<br />

Mrs Black saysC4LD has developed<br />

a10­pointproposal for reform that<br />

would achieve majoritysupport,<br />

while still respecting fundamental<br />

community property rights.<br />

‘‘There could have been cross party<br />

support on this reform, but no<br />

attempt has really ever been made.’’<br />

The Governmenthas madesome<br />

changes, suchasforming 10 entities,<br />

instead of four.<br />

But C4LD is united in its beliefthe<br />

governmenthas not doneenough to<br />

address the matters of concern to<br />

councils and communities, Mrs Black<br />

says.<br />

‘‘The critical flaws it has noted in<br />

the programmeinclude unrealistic<br />

9<br />

deliverables, unconvincing figures<br />

with unobtainable efficiencies, and<br />

the fact that community assetswill be<br />

taken without compensation,<br />

meaning substantial lossofcontrol<br />

for councils.’’<br />

Mr Gordon says the Bill does not go<br />

far enough in addressing matters of<br />

concerntocouncils and their<br />

communities.<br />

The governmentcontinues to push<br />

ahead withthe removal of assets<br />

from communities resulting in the<br />

loss of control thatownership<br />

confersonthem.<br />

‘‘The Waimakariri communitydoes<br />

not support this,and the loss of<br />

ownership and effective control is<br />

the crux of the issue.’’<br />

Councils preparetraineestorespond to disasters<br />

Five days, fivecourses, fourcouncils.<br />

When 26 eager trainees gathered in<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> to be put through<br />

their pacesrecently, it wasn't for a<br />

new reality television series.<br />

Instead, says Hurunui District<br />

Council EmergencyManagement<br />

Officer Allan Grigg, it was the result of<br />

acollaborative effort to boost<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong>'s ability to respond to the<br />

very realthreat of adisaster situation.<br />

Staff fromHurunui, Waimakariri<br />

and Selwyn district councils joined<br />

Environment <strong>Canterbury</strong> staff last<br />

week to be trained up, with amix of<br />

theory and practical training,onhow<br />

to respondinaCivil Defence<br />

emergency.<br />

‘‘The aim is to provide consistency<br />

in training aroundthe country so that<br />

when disasterstrikes, Emergency<br />

Operations Centres (EOC)can be set<br />

up quickly and seamlessly,’’ Mr Grigg<br />

says.<br />

‘‘AnEOC is where we work together<br />

withother agencies to respond to an<br />

emergency.<br />

‘‘The people in the EOC cover awide<br />

range of roles to support their<br />

communities with information, water<br />

and food,emergency accommodation,<br />

and co­ordinating emergency<br />

services.<br />

‘‘It’s too late to prepare an<br />

emergency response when the<br />

disaster is uponus. Peopleneed to be<br />

trained and ready to respond at any<br />

time.’’<br />

Grigg said staffattending the<br />

courses ranged from those who were<br />

relatively new, withlittle experience<br />

in theCivilDefence space, to those<br />

who wereseasonedcampaigners.<br />

CoursetrainerRoss Pringle,from<br />

ECan,and Mr Grigg are both members<br />

of the New Zealand Emergency<br />

Management Assistance Team<br />

(NZEMAT), whichisdeployed to assist<br />

districts or regions in managing<br />

emergencies.<br />

Brennan Wiremu, Waimakariri<br />

DistrictCouncil Emergency<br />

Management Advisor,alongwith<br />

Messrs Pringle and Grigg,are also<br />

members of <strong>Canterbury</strong> 10 (C10), a<br />

regional version of NZEMAT.<br />

They werejoined by Allan Wilson,a<br />

retired Emergency Management<br />

Officer and Local CDEMController<br />

from the WestCoast.<br />

Eventslike the <strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

earthquakes reinforcethe value of<br />

havingtrained staff who are ready to<br />

respond.<br />

Alot of this training was reduced<br />

becauseofCovid, so it was important<br />

to get it rolledout again,'' Mr Grigg<br />

said.<br />

Staff willgoback to theircouncils<br />

with agood knowledge of Civil<br />

Defence processes.<br />

Mr Grigg said all agencies and<br />

councils follow anational framework<br />

to manage incidentssovolunteers can<br />

be immediately slotted into different<br />

roleswith an understanding of their<br />

responsibilities.<br />

These range fromLogisticsand<br />

Intelligence, to Planning and<br />

Operations, Grigg said.<br />

While push­ups and planksweren't<br />

included in the training, stafffrom the<br />

fourcouncils leftfeeling pumped and<br />

ready for action.<br />

Known for his work championing the<br />

Ian says thestar came as abit of a<br />

shock.<br />

‘‘Mywife and Iwereatthe RSAClub<br />

in RangioraonThursday night, and<br />

suddenly Iwas calleduptothestage<br />

where they announced Ihad been<br />

awardedthe medal by thenational<br />

The President of the RangioraRSA<br />

Executiveisthe sonofaWorld War<br />

Two veteran.<br />

He wasborn83years ago in<br />

Melbourne.<br />

His family shifted to <strong>Canterbury</strong> in<br />

1960where his fatherworked on a<br />

farm.<br />

Interested in community law,Ian was<br />

sentbythe NewZealandGovernment<br />

to Sweden to be trainedinemployment<br />

law.<br />

On his return he becameawellknown<br />

employmentlaw advocate.<br />

It is avocation he hasmaintainedall<br />

his working career, establishingIR<br />

Thompson and Associates, which is<br />

now run by his sonRobert.<br />

His grandson Jacob hasjuststarted<br />

in thefamily firm, marking three<br />

generationsworking there.<br />

Proud of hisfather's contribution to<br />

his country,Ian saysheundertakes his<br />

welfare workinhonour of him.<br />

‘‘Dad never talked muchabout what<br />

he did in the war,likemany he kept it<br />

to himself, anditwas only years later<br />

thatIfoundout howmuchhedid to<br />

protecthis family fromthe impact of<br />

the ravages of war he hadexperienced<br />

and latersuffered greatly for.’’<br />

While working in Christchurch City,<br />

Ian used to take hislunchbreaksinthe<br />

Christchurch RSA.<br />

In 1981whenthe RSAopened up<br />

membership to wivesand children of<br />

servicemen,hewas approached by a<br />

helping others out.<br />

Ian says he knows first­hand how<br />

harditisfor wivesand children living<br />

withareturned serviceman.<br />

“It isn’t easy, that’s where the<br />

‘‘Ifpeoplethought we hadproblems<br />

Overthe years,Ian has dealt with all<br />

mannerofwelfare issues,and he says<br />

young soldiers arenow callingfor help<br />

fromthe welfaresectionatthe RSA.<br />

‘‘Welfare usedtobeonly about<br />

hearingaids, false teeth, glasses and<br />

for any welfareofficer, using his<br />

Bainlea House<br />

completes beautiful<br />

refurbishment<br />

Rangiora Lifecare’s Bainlea House is aspecialist<br />

dementia care home in the heart of Rangiora.<br />

It is avibrant facility which offers aholistic,<br />

person-centred approach for people living<br />

with dementia that focuses on the ability of the<br />

individual rather than the disability.Bainlea<br />

House maintains strong ties to the community<br />

and as the sole local provider has adeep<br />

understanding of the distinctive needs and<br />

preferences of the area.<br />

Over the past 18 months the small-scale facility<br />

has undergone an extensive refurbishment --<br />

transforming the living room, dining room and<br />

bedrooms into spaces that are light, warm and<br />

welcoming for both residents and their families.<br />

Bainlea House is designed to feel like a<br />

home, not ahospital. As part of the meticulous<br />

upgrade, several rooms have been reconfigured<br />

to optimise the layout and improve accessibility.<br />

The dining room has been adorned with new<br />

furniture to ensure apleasant dining experience,<br />

and new lighting ensures acomfortable and<br />

aesthetically pleasing environment for residents.<br />

To further enhance safety and accessibility,the<br />

handrails have been upgraded throughout the<br />

premises.<br />

“Weare delighted to see the positive impact<br />

of the recent upgrades to Bainlea House,” says<br />

Gail Kerse, Care Home Manager at Rangiora<br />

Lifecare. “The feedback we have received from<br />

With Goose the pet therapy dog and his handler Sally Elliott, are (from left) Gail Kerse (Care<br />

Home Manager), Julie Fox (RN at Bainlea) and Carol Ritchie (Clinical manager).<br />

residents and their families has been truly<br />

heartwarming,” she says.<br />

Beyond the walls, anew sensory garden is<br />

being developed with the help of residents,<br />

where vegetable and flower gardens will<br />

flourish. The garden will include carefully<br />

designed areas where residents can sit and<br />

enjoy the outdoors in atranquil setting.<br />

Bainlea House boasts afulland rich activity<br />

programme, ensuring that residents have<br />

abundant opportunities for socialisation,<br />

mental stimulation and physical exercise.<br />

Twodiversional therapists expertly curate<br />

social interactions, keeping residents busy<br />

and content, says Kerse. The intention is to<br />

enhance well-being and allow residents to<br />

remain active in everyday life, in ways that<br />

mirror their lifelong hobbies and preferences<br />

-- such as baking, preparing vegetables, chores<br />

and crafts. Regular outings to events and shows<br />

are organised, allowing residents to remain<br />

connected to the local community.<br />

Bainlea House is one of three facilities owned<br />

by Rangiora Lifecare in the <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

township. The purpose-built dementia care<br />

home has 27 beds and caters to long-term and<br />

respite care. It is operated by clinical staff with<br />

advanced training in dementia care services<br />

who are chosen for their empathy and patience.<br />

Families of loved ones living with dementia can<br />

have peace of mind knowing their loved ones<br />

are receiving personalised, quality care and<br />

attention.<br />

Bainswood on Victoria offers rest home and<br />

hospital care, while Bainswood Rest Home<br />

and Retirement Village offer rest home care,<br />

serviced apartments, and independent living<br />

villas. The three facilities were acquired by<br />

Rangiora Lifecare in December 2021 from<br />

Arvida.<br />

Getting together to be young at heart again<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Local Democracy Reporter<br />

Agroup of Kaikōura locals are helping<br />

retired men to reconnect with their<br />

community.<br />

The Kaikōura Community Shed is<br />

open to everyone, but on Thursday<br />

mornings it opens for older men only.<br />

Te Hā oTeOra Kaikōura Health<br />

community support worker Belinda<br />

‘‘Blou’’ Rickerby keeps an eye on the<br />

group, offering support when needed.<br />

Known as ‘‘Blou’s Group’’, each<br />

session begins with acuppa and ayarn.<br />

‘‘And then there is ajob for everybody,<br />

whether it is painting or cutting,<br />

everybody helps,’’ Ms Rickerby said.<br />

‘‘Often when men stop work they lose<br />

contact with people, so it is about getting<br />

men back together so they can be boys.’’<br />

For the last five years the group has<br />

been building predator traps for various<br />

organisations, including Environment<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong>, to help protect native birds.<br />

‘‘We probably do abunch one or two<br />

times ayear, depending on what they<br />

are doing,’’ she said.<br />

Other projects have included building<br />

penguin hutches to provide asafe place<br />

for the little penguins at South Bay and<br />

weta homes to shelter birds from mice in<br />

the Hurunui district after the 2016<br />

earthquake.<br />

They also make coasters with<br />

Kaikōura images for local businesses to<br />

sell as souvenirs.<br />

There were usually about 14 to 16 men<br />

turning up each Thursday, and the shed<br />

is open to other people on other days.<br />

‘‘People can bring projects down to<br />

work on or we can give them ajob to do,’’<br />

Ms Rickerby said.<br />

‘‘We go out and source activities for<br />

them.<br />

‘‘We have equipped the shed for the<br />

local community with what tools they<br />

Blou’s Group’. .. The Kaikōura Community Shed’s Thursday morning men’s group.<br />

want through local community support.’’<br />

On Tuesday mornings the shed<br />

opened up for an alcohol and drug<br />

counselling group.<br />

‘‘They come in and do two to three<br />

hours and we give them something else<br />

to do, and they gain some life skills,’’ she<br />

said.<br />

Night classes were also being<br />

considered in the shed in the future to<br />

make it more accessible.<br />

The Kaikōura Community Shed was<br />

located behind Te Hā o Mātauranga<br />

(Kaikōura Education Trust) in Ludstone<br />

Road.<br />

Te Hā also used the shed to run<br />

courses for local youth.<br />

The shed was co­ordinated by Darryl<br />

McRobie and Trevor Carpenter.<br />

‘‘We want more people to use the<br />

community shed,’’ Mr McRobie said.<br />

‘‘It is great to keep the oldies coming<br />

in and doing some work.<br />

‘‘It is not about what they make, it is<br />

about what they do when they are here.’’<br />

He said the shed was keen to extend<br />

what it offered for the community and<br />

was open to ideas.<br />

He was on the lookout for someone to<br />

teach the shed users how to use awood<br />

the KaiapoiRiver.<br />

It tooktwo large cranes from<br />

Christchurch’s Smith Crane and<br />

Construction to lift the 36.3 tonnebuilding.<br />

One crane was initiallyatthe Charles<br />

Streetsite for the moveearly last Friday<br />

morning, but after preparing the building<br />

for the shift it was decided another crane<br />

was neededtostabilise the toilet block<br />

duringthe move.<br />

The secondcrane arrived on site at<br />

8.40amand by 9.45am the building had<br />

been placed on its new foundation, onlya<br />

few metres fromits former site but higher<br />

up nearthe boardwalk and with abetter<br />

moved to its new sitebecauseitwas a<br />

historic event for Kaiapoi.<br />

FrancieWortel and her daughter<br />

Danielle Wortel,ofKaiapoi, were also on<br />

sitetosee the move.<br />

‘‘I am glad they saved that building<br />

because we lost so muchhistory in the<br />

earthquake,’’ Francie said.<br />

‘‘And the cafe doesareally good hightea<br />

as well.’’<br />

The building,which has aNew Zealand<br />

Historic PlacesTrust Category II listing, is<br />

now owned by Kaiapoideveloper Jedd<br />

Pearce.<br />

Jeddhad initially workedwith the<br />

Kaiapoi Railway StationTrust and the<br />

Waimakariri District Council on the<br />

project.<br />

The building was sold to him ‘‘a month<br />

or twoago’’,trust chairman and deputy<br />

mayor Neville Atkinsonsaid.<br />

‘‘Wedidn’t have enough money to shift<br />

the building, and it has aHistoric Places<br />

Trust listing, so it has to be looked after.<br />

‘‘Jedd’s offer to buy it was agood<br />

solution. The new site will be magical.’’<br />

Jedd, who was born in Kaiapoi, grew up<br />

thereand still lives in the river town said<br />

he was happy to be involved, and pleased<br />

to see so much interest in the move.<br />

‘‘It shows how much the building, and<br />

the fantastic cafe Charlotteand Sheryl<br />

have established in it, meanstothis<br />

community,’’hesaid.<br />

The cafe's last day of business at the<br />

former sitewas on Sunday, <strong>July</strong> 2.<br />

Charlotte said she was hoping to be able<br />

to reopen on <strong>July</strong> 24 but thinks this might<br />

be unrealistic.<br />

‘‘We understand that it is abig project,<br />

and we have totalfaiththat Hazeldine<br />

and running as soonaspossible,’’ she said.<br />

‘‘We willreopen as soon as we can, and<br />

when you see our flags on the roadside,<br />

you willknow we are back.’’<br />

Customers had been‘‘so supportive’’’ in<br />

the weeks leading up to the move, while<br />

the foundations on the new sitewere built,<br />

she said.<br />

Project an important initiative<br />

By DAVID HILL.<br />

Local Democracy Reporter<br />

Amahinga kai project in Kaiapoi has<br />

been labelled as an ‘‘outstanding’’<br />

community initiative.<br />

Waimakariri Deputy Mayor Neville<br />

Atkinson says the Huria Reserve<br />

heritage and mahinga kai area, to the<br />

south of Kaiapoi River, was an<br />

important part of the town’s<br />

regeneration after the 2010 and 2011<br />

earthquakes.<br />

‘‘This is an outstanding project and it<br />

has come out at the right cost all the way<br />

through.<br />

‘‘It is avery important part of<br />

Kaiapoi’s regeneration and it needs to<br />

be completed.’’<br />

The project is apartnership between<br />

the Waimakariri District Council and Te<br />

Rūnanga oNgāi Tūāhurir.<br />

It came out of the Kaiapoi residential<br />

red zone plan developed after the<br />

earthquakes.<br />

The council has completed physical<br />

implementation works over the last two<br />

years and has now entered into aformal<br />

agreement with Te Kōhaka o Tūhaitara<br />

Trust, which will manage the $1.8<br />

million project.<br />

Funding of $390,000 will now be<br />

transferred to the trust, from the <strong>2023</strong>/24<br />

annual plan.<br />

It was approved at last week’s council<br />

meeting, despite aproposal from Cr<br />

Paul Williams to defer it due to the<br />

economic situation.<br />

He says the trust should be looking for<br />

outside funding, like the Honda Forest,<br />

to the north of Kaiapoi River.<br />

Community and recreation general<br />

manager Chris Brown says the council<br />

had consulted extensively with the<br />

community as part of the regeneration<br />

plan and the Long Term Plan process.<br />

‘‘We said to the community we would<br />

deliver this project and we intend to<br />

deliver it.’’<br />

Cr Al Blackie, who is also aTeKōhaka<br />

o Tūhaitara Trust trustee, says the trust<br />

intended to seek commercial support<br />

and planned to engage with schools and<br />

community organisations.<br />

Mayor Dan Gordon says he was<br />

pleased to see the project come to<br />

fruition.<br />

‘‘The trust will continue to develop<br />

Fire and Ice festival of fun<br />

this space, which will celebrate<br />

traditional Māori customs and promote<br />

learning and recreation activity.’’<br />

Mr Gordon says the council had<br />

completed anumber of regeneration<br />

projects over the last six years,<br />

including sports fields, aBMX track, a<br />

dog park, and had redeveloped the<br />

marine precinct and the river banks.<br />

Acommunity hub, bringing together<br />

organisations such as Satisfy Food<br />

Rescue and the Kaiapoi Men’s Shed,<br />

was also being developed across the<br />

road from Huria Reserve.<br />

Wallaby sightings wanted<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Following two unconfirmed<br />

wallaby sightings in the<br />

Kaikōura district in the past six<br />

months, Environment<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> (ECan) Wallaby<br />

Team Lead Brent Glentworth is<br />

asking locals to report any signs<br />

or sightings of the pest.<br />

He says wallabies are athreat<br />

to the local economy, with<br />

established groups causing<br />

significant environmental and<br />

economic damage in South<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> and Otago.<br />

Kaikoura’s economy is<br />

dependent on agriculture and<br />

tourism, he says, and wallabies<br />

have the potential to impact<br />

both.<br />

‘‘They reduce farm profits by<br />

reducing stock carrying<br />

capacity. with three wallabies<br />

consuming the same as one<br />

adult ewe.<br />

‘‘They destroy crops, foul<br />

pasture and damage fences.<br />

‘‘They feast on seedlings in<br />

native bush which prevents<br />

regeneration and destroys the<br />

habitat for our native species,<br />

they do the same with<br />

commercial forests and private<br />

plantings,’’ Mr Glentworth says.<br />

Wallabies are classified as a<br />

pest under <strong>Canterbury</strong>’s<br />

Regional Pest Management<br />

Plan and there are serious<br />

penalties for illegal release .<br />

‘‘Its against the law to keep,<br />

move, breed, display, sell, or<br />

release wallabies without a<br />

special permit. There are<br />

significant fines and jail terms<br />

On the loose ... Awallaby in the<br />

wild.<br />

PHOTO: FILE<br />

for people who do.<br />

‘‘Help us by reporting<br />

sightings to stop wallabies<br />

spreading beyond the known<br />

containment area. ECan needs<br />

to know where they are —your<br />

reports are critical to stopping<br />

their spread.’’<br />

Mr Glentworth says if you see<br />

awallaby in <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

or Marlborough, dead or alive,<br />

report it.<br />

‘‘If you see signs of wallaby,<br />

including footprints or scat<br />

(poo), you can report those too.<br />

If possible, please take aphoto<br />

to help verify the animal and<br />

sign.’’<br />

Reports can also be made<br />

online via reportwallabies.nz,<br />

or by phoning Environment<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> on 0800 324 636.<br />

They look like small<br />

kangaroos, and grow up to 80cm<br />

tall.<br />

‘‘They leave distinctive<br />

tracks. You are most likely to<br />

see these at creek crossings,<br />

bare ground or clay slips.<br />

‘‘Sometimes atail drag mark<br />

can be seen on very soft ground<br />

or in snow,’’<br />

Mr Glentworth says their scat<br />

(poo) is agood indication if a<br />

wallaby has been in an area for<br />

some time.<br />

‘‘It is often pelleted and<br />

found in clumps, normally<br />

coarse in texture with<br />

vegetation fibres visible.’’<br />

ECan works alongside<br />

partners in the Biosecurity<br />

New Zealand (MPI) led Tipu<br />

Mtoro National Wallaby<br />

Eradication Programme to<br />

prevent them spreading from<br />

their established bases in South<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> and the Bay of<br />

Plenty.<br />

The programme is a<br />

partnership that includes<br />

central and local government<br />

agencies, iwi, farmers,<br />

landholders and communities.<br />

Programme partners are<br />

working towards awallaby­free<br />

Aotearoa.<br />

MPI estimates the economic<br />

impact of wallaby spread,<br />

including lost farm production,<br />

could reach an eye­watering<br />

$84 million ayear.<br />

‘‘Youhave to admirethem<br />

she said.<br />

‘‘We are pleased to be<br />

been working with Eleanor<br />

underthe supervision of<br />

Professor Jim Briskie.<br />

The project was the first to<br />

receive funding for the new<br />

increasedfrom $50,000 to<br />

$75,000 this year and Ms<br />

Latham said the committeewas<br />

keen to hear fromother groups<br />

Access problems at Clarence<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Local Democracy Reporter<br />

Clarence Valley farmer Steve Millard has<br />

the job of maintaining atemporary<br />

access to connect with the outside world.<br />

It has been Mr Millard’s lot since the<br />

November 2016 earthquake destroyed<br />

the Glen Alton bridge, over the Waiau<br />

Toa Clarence River<br />

Mr Millard, who owns adigger and a<br />

bulldozer, and has the job of maintaining<br />

the ford and the road, which is subject to<br />

several landslips.<br />

‘‘We knew we would be isolated when<br />

we came here, but back then we had a<br />

decent road and abridge,’’ he says.<br />

The Kaikōura District Council has<br />

applied to Environment <strong>Canterbury</strong> for a<br />

resource consent to build a$<strong>13</strong>.5 million<br />

bridge, 500 metres upstream from the<br />

previous bridge.<br />

Environment <strong>Canterbury</strong> has said the<br />

application was on hold while further<br />

information was sought from the<br />

Kaikōura council.<br />

Among the challenges was addressing<br />

the cultural concerns of Te Rūnanga o<br />

Kaikōura.<br />

Mr Millard and his wife Shirley are<br />

among several properties in the Clarence<br />

Valley, including forestry blocks close to<br />

harvesting, some large hill country<br />

properties and Department of<br />

Conservation land.<br />

For now access is via Waipapa Road,<br />

Wharekiri Stream and apaper road<br />

through several properties.<br />

But the Wharekiri Stream is prone to<br />

flooding in heavy rain events and can be<br />

impassable for up to two weeks.<br />

Access is by four­wheel­drive only, as<br />

the gravel in the creek ‘‘can be quite<br />

soft’’, Mr Millard says.<br />

‘‘There has been afew times when<br />

we’ve had to abandon our vehicle and get<br />

achopper home and it just adds to our<br />

costs.’’<br />

The Millards moved to the valley 11<br />

years ago and farmed beef cattle and<br />

deer, hosting tourists for trophy hunting<br />

tours.<br />

While the tourists could be flown in by<br />

helicopter, getting stock trucks in was<br />

more of achallenge.<br />

‘‘You can get astock truck up here,<br />

when the creek’s not in flood, but not a<br />

truck and trailer,’’ Mr Millard says.<br />

Mrs Millard says one of the neighbours<br />

applied for Lotteries funding after the<br />

earthquakes and received agrant which<br />

was shared among the property owners to<br />

assist with the extra costs such as hiring<br />

ahelicopter.<br />

But the funding has run out.<br />

‘‘All we’re asking for is to get back at<br />

least what we had,’’ Mr Millard says.<br />

‘‘I’ve already had to call in the<br />

helicopter when Iwas ill.<br />

‘‘They wanted to send an ambulance,<br />

but Isaid ‘no, send the helicopter,<br />

because the ambulance will get stuck.’’<br />

Biodiversity legislation criticised<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Biodiversity willbethe biggest loser if the<br />

Government’s new legislation announced<br />

last weekispassed, claims rural lobby<br />

groupGroundswell NZ.<br />

‘‘Themorelandownersdotolook after<br />

biodiversity,the more theyare penalised<br />

with rules, bureaucratic interference, and<br />

costs,’’ saysGroundswell NZ’s<br />

environmental spokesperson Jamie<br />

McFadden.<br />

‘‘This ill­conceived legislation turns<br />

biodiversityinto aliability and is asmack<br />

in the facefor thousands of landowners<br />

that have been proactiveinprotecting and<br />

enhancing biodiversityontheir land.Itis<br />

adisincentive for anyone wantingtodothe<br />

rightthingfor the environment.’’<br />

For the past23years Mr McFadden has<br />

been at the forefront of the biodiversity<br />

effort in <strong>Canterbury</strong> withaneco­sourced,<br />

nativeplant nursery and environmental<br />

restoration business near Cheviot, which<br />

has inspired thousands of projects.<br />

‘‘It is so disappointing to see aLabour/<br />

GreensGovernment failtorecognise that<br />

havingmotivated, empowered landowners<br />

is fundamental to protecting biodiversity<br />

on private land,” he says.<br />

The cornerstone of the new legislation is<br />

the mandatoryrequirement for councils to<br />

assessall land in their districts to identify<br />

Significant Natural Areas (SNAs).<br />

Southland District Council has<br />

previouslyestimated the cost to do this at<br />

$18 million.<br />

‘‘And not one cent of this goesinto<br />

helping biodiversity ­ it is just abox ticking<br />

exercise and amassive state­control land<br />

grab,’’ Mr McFadden says.<br />

‘‘The Government is hypocritical to<br />

demandlandowners protectbiodiversity<br />

when their own climatechangepolicies<br />

havealready caused the loss of thousands<br />

of hectares of unique native shrublands<br />

fromconversiontopine forests.<br />

Groundswell NZ is promoting an<br />

alternative solution, based on the QEII<br />

Trust covenants, that partners with<br />

landowners.<br />

It says it focuses on the threats to<br />

biodiversity rather than assessing<br />

significance, withmoneyand resources<br />

directed whereneeded.<br />

Groundswell NZ is continuing its Say No<br />

campaign whichcalls on landowners to<br />

refuse SNA assessments until the<br />

legislation instills biodiversity as an asset,<br />

and respects conservation efforts and<br />

private propertyrights.<br />

Meanwhile B+LNZsays the legislation<br />

is fundamentally flawed, and the<br />

definition of SNAsisfar to broad and<br />

limits what beef and sheep farmers can do<br />

on their land.<br />

final whistle this Saturday.<br />

Ashley, Hurunui and Saracens<br />

are still in the contest.<br />

Saracens vHurunui<br />

After being over run by<br />

Glenmark­Cheviotthe week<br />

before,amore urgent Saracens<br />

side was expected to give<br />

Hurunui atorrid time when<br />

returning homelast Saturday.<br />

This was not to be.<br />

Alethargic first half<br />

performance by Saracensand a<br />

clinical firsthalf by Hurunui, laid<br />

the foundation for a14­10<br />

Hurunui win.<br />

Saracensheld aterritorialand<br />

possession advantage in the<br />

opening quarter, but it failed<br />

convert this into points and a<br />

handy penaltyshot also went<br />

astray.<br />

Surviving an early blitz from<br />

the home side, the Hurunui<br />

forward pack put the squeeze on,<br />

winning at set piecetime and<br />

settingthe tone on defence.<br />

It seriouslyattacked the<br />

Saracens line twice in the second<br />

phase of the half, and was<br />

rewarded with two well­executed<br />

tries.<br />

The first was scoredbycentre<br />

Matt Hickey, and on half time<br />

when an overlap was created,<br />

wingerJono Schwass,with some<br />

deft footwork to beat his opposite<br />

on the outside, finished the move<br />

off.<br />

Saracens regathered in the<br />

secondhalf, scoring triesthrough<br />

replacement prop Michael Day,<br />

and fullback CalebPomare­<br />

Edwards, however both were<br />

unconverted. Pomare­Edwards<br />

try came when Hurunuiwas a<br />

man down due to an illegal<br />

tackle.<br />

Saracenskept Hurunui<br />

scoreless, and was camped on the<br />

Hurunuiline whentime ran out,<br />

in the face of some spirited<br />

defence, when searching for the<br />

winning points.<br />

For Hurunui, Hamish<br />

Cameron,dug as deepasanyone.<br />

He was everywhere, and his<br />

defence was aggressive.<br />

Si Smith showcasedhis<br />

defensive work rate too, bagging<br />

himself acouple of turnovers and<br />

winger Josh Cavanaghfeatured<br />

prominently with ball in hand.<br />

Half back, Takagi Yuta was a<br />

stand out in the Saracens line up.<br />

His long passes and darts<br />

around the breakdown werea<br />

feature of his play.<br />

Josh Maynard led his team well<br />

and very nearly got them over the<br />

line.<br />

Hurunui 14 (JonoSchwass, Matt<br />

Hickey tries;Kyle McKenzie two<br />

conversions)beat Saracens10<br />

(Michael Day, Caleb Pomare­<br />

Edwards tries).<br />

Kaiapoi vWoodend<br />

On aday whenyou could be<br />

excused for tucking it up the<br />

jumper instead of spinning it,<br />

Kaiapoi managed to run in seven<br />

tries to secure a45­0 win over<br />

Woodend at Gladstone Park.<br />

Thesigns were ominousearly<br />

when Kaiapoi, who had the lion’s<br />

share of possession, took aquick<br />

tap and spun it wide for Sid<br />

Costertoscore the first of his two<br />

tries.<br />

Kaiapoi was quickly back on<br />

attackfrom the kick off and was<br />

findingspace with ease.<br />

As it got closetothe line, Coster<br />

found himself in the right place<br />

again,and dived over to score<br />

from the ruck.<br />

The tries kept comingwhen<br />

left wing MattyTuatagaloa made<br />

an incisive break, and turned<br />

everyone inside out, before<br />

delivering the final pass to first<br />

five Taine Jacobs­Lawson to<br />

stroll over untouched.<br />

Theforwards were dominant<br />

throughout the first half,<br />

especially at scrumtime and<br />

when Kaiapoi opted for a 5m<br />

scrum from apenalty, you knew<br />

number 8and captain Jacob<br />

Hurring wasn’t going to let the<br />

ball come out.<br />

The scrum drove Woodend<br />

back over their line and Hurring<br />

was the beneficiary of this.<br />

Thefirst half scoring was<br />

roundedoff when another attack<br />

into Woodend’s 22, led to a<br />

Thingsdidn’t go as smoothly in<br />

the second half for Kaiapoi and<br />

Woodend stood up defensively<br />

and tried touse the ball when<br />

theyhad it.<br />

Kaiapoi’s defence remained<br />

strong however and didn’t let<br />

them through.<br />

When attacking, regular<br />

handlingand passing errors<br />

meant momentum was hard to<br />

come by.<br />

Kaiapoi hadtowait until<br />

halfway through the half before a<br />

quick tap led to lock Zane Carey<br />

diving over from close range.<br />

Jacobs­Lawson converted and<br />

itwould remain like this till the<br />

out for Kaiapoi with Sid Coster<br />

and being rewarded withPlayerof­the­Day.<br />

Therewas plenty of endeavour<br />

from both sides, but Kaiapoiwas<br />

more dominant and finished off<br />

plentyofchances.<br />

Ashley vGlenmark­Cheviot<br />

The Ashley Clubare to be<br />

congratulated on their promotion<br />

of the Rangiora Showcase<br />

Jewellers<strong>2023</strong> LadiesDay.<br />

Notwithstandingthe cold<br />

showery conditions alarge crowd<br />

turned up to the Loburn Domain<br />

to watch the home team, playing<br />

in specially designed pink and<br />

white jerseys, challenge the inform<br />

Glenmark­Cheviot side for<br />

the Deans Shield.<br />

Within 10 minutes thoughmost<br />

of the jerseys, especiallythose of<br />

the forwardswerecaked in mud,<br />

and Glenmark­Cheviotwere<br />

already givingalessononhow to<br />

play rugby in these difficult<br />

conditions.<br />

Their game plan was simple.<br />

Half­back, Jordy Gray,controlled<br />

the play masterfully, making full<br />

use of the box kick to pin Ashley<br />

inside their own half. Although<br />

they gainedaplethora of<br />

possession,rarely did Glenmark­<br />

Cheviot put theball through<br />

more than one pair of hands.<br />

ThreeofGlenmark­Cheviot’s<br />

four trieswere scored in this<br />

fashion.<br />

The hard­working frontrowers,Nick<br />

Hyde (twice) and<br />

Hayden O’Donnell were the ones<br />

who managedtocrash over the<br />

line to score despite Ashley’s<br />

wholehearted efforts tokeep<br />

them at bay,<br />

Glenmark­Cheviot’s other try,<br />

scoredtowards the end of the<br />

firsthalf,was alittle more<br />

expansive.<br />

Gray gathered up aloose ball<br />

and passedtoMike Keane who<br />

showed goodacceleration and<br />

timed his pass to winger Matt<br />

Holmestoperfection,allowing<br />

Holmestoslide in expertly at the<br />

corner.<br />

By the 55 minute mark<br />

Glenmark­Cheviot had<br />

established a24­0 lead andthe<br />

game was essentially over as a<br />

contest.<br />

Ben Anderson, Harry Allan<br />

and AndrewHull all turned in<br />

big shifts in the visitors’ pack<br />

whileJack Regan and captain<br />

Louis James were among<br />

Ashley’s best.<br />

LukeGold had madeagood fist<br />

of the half­back duties forAshley.<br />

He moved into the custodian’s<br />

role as bench players were<br />

inserted intothe gameand it was<br />

from therethat he gained some<br />

consolation for his team by<br />

scoringaverygood hard­running<br />

try.<br />

What’s happening in your<br />

community…<br />

It's Doggy Rego Time<br />

Time to beat the rush and get in quick to register<br />

your pups. This is your reminder to pop into your<br />

local service centre in Rangiora, Kaiapoi or Oxford<br />

and pay for your dog registration. You have till the<br />

end of <strong>July</strong> before the fee increases so get in fast<br />

and beat the queues.<br />

Billy Charlton, Environmental Services Manager<br />

says, “Registering your dog is part of being a<br />

responsible dog owner and we’re making it easier<br />

with the new multi-year tag. With around 14,000<br />

dogs in the District registration is key to getting<br />

lost dogs back home to their loved ones quickly.”<br />

Dogs registered from 1<strong>July</strong> <strong>2023</strong> will be<br />

issued with the new multi-year tag, instead of<br />

the previous plastic disc or strip tag that was<br />

changed annually.<br />

Moving to amulti-year metal tag:<br />

• Reduces plastic waste and is better for the<br />

environment<br />

• Convenience for dog owners –noneed to<br />

replace atag each year<br />

• Reduces postage costs as aregistration tag is<br />

not posted out each year<br />

• Reduces administration costs around annual<br />

dog tags.<br />

Remember, if your dogs are lost, we can help<br />

return them home quickly if they're wearing a<br />

registration tag, are microchipped and if your<br />

contact details in the database are up-to-date.<br />

All dogs over the age of three months must<br />

be registered. Each dog should be registered<br />

at the address where they spend the majority<br />

of time. All dogs registered for the first time<br />

(except farm dogs used for stock control) must<br />

also be microchipped. The Council doesn't offer<br />

amicrochipping service, but all the local vets<br />

will do this.<br />

NOTIFICATION OF IMPENDING COMMENCEMENT –<br />

ISOLATED HILL PREDATOR CONTROL<br />

Vector Free Marlborough (VFM) wishes to advise landowners andother interested parties<br />

of its intention to aerially apply the toxin sodium fluoroacetate (1080) for the purpose of<br />

controlling possums, stoats, and rats in the Isolated Hill Scenic Reserve.<br />

The operation is being carried out by Vector Free Marlborough (VFM) on behalf of the<br />

Department of Conservation (DOC) to protect vulnerable native species from introduced<br />

predators.<br />

Unfavourable weather conditions over recent weeks have delayed the planned<br />

toxic application of this operation,originallyscheduled for early June <strong>2023</strong>.<br />

Description of the area<br />

The Isolated Hill Scenic Reserve is approximately 3,400ha and is mostly contained<br />

within the catchments of two southbank tributaries of the Waima (Ure) River. The<br />

reserve is surrounded on all sides by developed farmland with Protected Private Lands<br />

(PPL’s; 590ha) that have been negotiated with neighbours on the northern and western<br />

boundaries to exclude domestic stock from areas of remnant forest presently outside but<br />

adjoining the reserve.<br />

Public Access &Recreational Facilities<br />

The treatment area covers over the Sawcut gorge track to Isolation Hut, through to Brian<br />

Boru Bivvy, Napolean Bivvy, and sections of the Zoo Hut track. The affected sections<br />

of tracks will be restricted to public access whilst the aerial application of toxic bait<br />

takes place. Please note Sawcut Gorge track is closed. Huts will have water supplies<br />

disconnected and provided with alternative drinking water supplies in accordance with<br />

Public Health Permit conditions, along with warning signs and factsheets in place before<br />

the operation commences.<br />

Toxin warning signs will be in place at all track entrances immediately prior to the<br />

application of toxic bait. Advisory signage will also be installed at key sites prior to nontoxic<br />

prefeed application.<br />

Commencement Date<br />

The operation commenced on 14 June <strong>2023</strong> with the aerial application of non-toxic cereal<br />

prefeed pellets. This will be followed by the aerial application of cereal pellets containing<br />

biodegradable 1080 during the next suitable weather opportunity.<br />

All work is weather dependent and people intending to visit theaffected area are advised<br />

to check the VFM and DOC websites for the status of the operation, and/or seek up-todate<br />

information from the DOC office in Renwick.<br />

Bait Description<br />

Prefeed: Non-toxic cereal-based pellet, approximately 16mm long, cinnamon-lured and<br />

non-dyed (sandy coloured). Please note that this phase was completed on 14 June<br />

<strong>2023</strong>.<br />

Toxic bait: Cereal based pellet, approximately 16mm long, cinnamon-lured and dyed<br />

green with atoxic loading of 0.15% sodium fluoroacetate (1080).<br />

The aerial operation will use helicopters equipped with Global Positioning System (GPS)<br />

hardware and calibrated buckets to ensureaccurate placement and adherence to consent<br />

conditions..<br />

Precautions<br />

This pesticide is poisonous to humans and domestic animals. Thepublic are reminded of<br />

the danger that toxic baits and possum carcasses pose, particularly to children and dogs.<br />

Children should be kept under strict supervision in the treatment area. Dogs should be<br />

kept under strict control at all times and not have access to, or be taken into the treatment<br />

area as they are particularly susceptible to accidental poisoning through contact with<br />

1080 bait and poisoned carcasses. The risks of poison carcasses to dogs may extend<br />

downstream of the control area.<br />

Game animals should not be sold or taken for eating from within or adjacent to this area<br />

until it is declared clear of pesticides.<br />

Warning signs will be erected at all main public entry points and the public are reminded<br />

that it is an offence to remove any of these signs. Warning signage will remain in place<br />

until monitoring indicates that bait and carcasses nolonger contain pesticide residues.<br />

Observe the following precautions whenever you see toxin warning signs present:<br />

•DONOT touch bait<br />

•WATCH CHILDREN at all times<br />

•DONOT EAT animals from this area or from within the “buffer zone” outside the<br />

treatment area boundary. The buffer zone is 200m for rabbits, 1km for hares, tahr,<br />

wallabies and possums, and 2kmfor deer,pigs and any other animals.<br />

•DEADLYTODOGS, do notallow dogs access to animal carcasses<br />

**If yoususpect poisoning<br />

Contact yourlocal hospital, or dial111<br />

National Poisons Centre 0800 POISON–0800 764 766<br />

In the case of adomestic animal being poisoned, contact alocal veterinarian.<br />
