Stormwater upgrades muddying the waters in Raglan


ecent protests at the stormwater upgrades on Wainui Road are just another example of Waikato District Council’s dereliction of duty, Whaingaroa Harbour Care stalwart and Waikato Regional councillor Fred Lichtwark says. WDC was served a non-compliance letter by Waikato Regional Council infrastructure team leader Hugh Keane pointing out the discharges authorised by the consent are unlawful, but no formal enforcement action would be taken. “If it were you or me doing noncompliant work on our own property we would have to stop and have to pay to rectify it,” Fred says. Waikato Regional Council Resource Use Manager, Brent Sinclair, says the consent that authorises the discharge of stormwater from Raglan township was granted in 2008 and is subject to more than 40 consent conditions. “We recently completed an interim compliance audit of the consent and that found that Waikato District Council has generally shown a high level of compliance with these conditions. However, we also found that in the 2016/17 year it did not comply with a condition that requires it hold an annual meeting with the Tangata Whenua and Key Stakeholder Liaison Group. The district council failed to comply with one condition of a number of conditions, and we look at the full picture, not just a piece of the picture in making decisions on what action to take.” Fred believes the non-compliant work adds to a list of environmental breaches and he questions WDC’s duty of care for Whaingaroa’s natural environment. “WDC are, in my opinion, abusing Raglan and this issue is one of a series of issues where they are disrespecting the natural resources that make Raglan, Raglan.” Fred says, issues such as Wainui Reserve wetlands being drained using tires that leach pollutant into the Wainui Stream; cattle busting through Wainui Reserve fences in disrepair (for which they have been issued an abatement notice);

Whaingaroa Harbour Care stalwart and Waikato Regional councillor Fred Lichtwark believes this non-compliant work adds to a list of environmental breaches by WDC. shoddy work causing safety issues at the Wallis Street boardwalk and various considerations made to developers that compromise the harbour water quality. He believes the Raglan community needs to be vocal about concerns they have over WDC stormwater solutions for Whaingaroa Harbour. “I want council to stop the works and incorporate stormwater treatment, and we need people pressure to make a difference.” Waikato District Council Waters Manager, Karl Pavlovich, says a new EnviroPod has been installed in a stormwater catchpit sump within the Wainui Road site, which removes the majority of gross pollutants and suspended solids, reducing particulate bound pollutants such as heavy metals, oil, and grease.

Health in your Hands


“We understand the public concerns raised, so WDC are working with our designer to consider stormwater treatment options that could be incorporated in the current works.” The district council also propose to reinstate some muddy roadside berm areas with the construction of kerbing and a planted swale to treat stormwater runoff from parking/adjacent road prior to discharge to harbour at the Joyce Petchell Park carpark upgrade. Pavlovich acknowledges that in 2016/17, the council did not comply with the resource consent condition to hold an annual meeting with the Tangata Whenua and Key Stakeholder Liaison Group but a meeting was held in 2017/18 and another is planned for later this year. He says the stormwater upgrade will improve the capacity of the system,

A check list from travel agents is very useful. A personal check list that one can refer to as you leave the house on any journey, however short, can save extra stress if something goes wrong, particularly if the memory is not as good as it used to be. It’s also a good idea to let a relative or friend know where you are going if you happen to go any distance. If you are travelling to another country, check your passport is not due to expire within six months, especially if you are away for several months. Pensioners need to inform Work

Animal Health Column For Raglan People + their Pets

Training with All Blacks squad a long way from playing Nintendo

Please help to keep our animals safe


e have had a run of dog fight injuries here at Anexa Vets Raglan, so we would like to talk about safe dog socializing and walking.

While we strongly encourage everyone to take their dogs out for walks, we need to be mindful and responsible when doing so, since there are other dogs who may not interact well with others. Remember to always get permission by asking the other dog owner ‘is your dog ok?’ before allowing dogs to meet. Just because your dog is friendly, another dog may be scared and then not enjoy your friendly dog coming up to greet him or her with enthusiasm! Please, if you are concerned that your dog would not enjoy socializing with other dogs, but still want them to enjoy spring, keep them on a lead and if possible warn people to keep their dogs away. A muzzle may also help as a warning signal to people. Basic lead training, a good solid, recall command and a few other basic commands are all that are needed for safe walking in public. If you need help with training these skills, our

nurses can help with the basics or we can refer you to trainers in Hamilton. Unfortunately, dog fights will still occur. When this happens, please don’t try and break them up! Often owners bring dogs into the vet for injuries but are worse off themselves and we have to convince them to seek medical attention. It is hard, but do not put your hands in to break up dogs. If a hose is available this is the best option, then a barrier of some kind, or stick. Dogs love to socialize, go for adventures and run off lead on the beach. We love nothing more than to see our dogs playing together, but would love to see our more socially awkward dogs enjoy walks too. The Yellow Dog Project is a global movement for owners of dogs that need space. It hopes to educate the public and dog owners to identify dogs needing space, promote appropriate contact of dogs and assist dog parents to identify their dog as needing space. Please see theyellowdogproject. com for more information. The Anexa Team

Angus in his Cheifs jersey, flanked by members of his family, from left, Fua, Angus, Stuart and Rupert Taavao.

ngus Ta’avao may be on the verge of turning out for the All Blacks but it was more sedentary games he often played in his youth, an old Raglan mate revealed this week. “I hung out with Angus a lot,” Simon Laxon told the Chronicle from Melbourne where he now hangs from ropes with commercial engineering company Absafe. Besides kicking the ball around they played a lot of Nintendo 64 – the classic gaming console – and downed a lot of cake. “We were always taking his mum’s carrot cake, I remember, dabbling in bits of food,” he laughs. That was around the time Angus lived in town with his mother Wendy McGee and brother Stuart. He was a Year 7 pupil at Raglan Area School before boarding at Dilworth in Auckland and returning here for the holidays. Simon reckons he tried hard not to get offside with Angus those days, even if he was regarded as a harmless giant. “He was big, he was massive … double our size at 13 … I could see he might be the next Jonah Lomu.” Now the 120kg-plus prop, off the back of an unexpected Super Rugby season with the Chiefs and a provincial campaign back with Taranaki, has surprised many with a call-up to join the All Black squad preparing for Saturday’s test in Nelson against Argentina. But not his old Raglan pal Nane Rose, now working in film across the ditch. “We would always talk about the day he would become an All Black,” she told the Chronicle. “It seemed nothing would stop him from realising his dream.” Even so “he didn’t seem to be the aggressive sort,” says local area school principal Malcolm Cox. Malcolm’s son Joe, who played a couple of games with Angus, agreed. “He was huge but gentle.” Angus was also shy, recalls Chronicle editor Maki Nishiyama, who boarded with the family in Long Street for a time. She remembers Angus as much quieter than Stuart, an observation backed up by the boys’ mother who posted on Facebook last week how he was “mercilessly tormented” at home by his older brother. Wendy, who these days lives in Auckland, said in her post that while Angus was big – and she had to carry around his birth certificate to prove his age

– he was always told he wasn’t aggressive enough. But after former ABs forwards coach Mike Cron told him to hang in there – that the game would move away from “bash and crash” – Wendy believed her son’s time would come. And now it looks like it has. The 28 year old told Radio Sport Breakfast last week there had always been a big question about his scrummaging “and I feel I have stepped up this year”. In another recent interview – with 1 News – he acknowledged “I’m now playing my best rugby”. ABs coach Steve Hansen spoke in similar vein last week in justifying the tighthead prop’s callup: “Angus had a big season for the Chiefs during Super Rugby, was part of a very good Chiefs pack and has made big strides on the technical aspects of his position,” he said. Angus says he’s been inspired by friends and family backing him all the way, including partner Kristyn Bradfield who visited his old haunts with him in Raglan a few months ago. The couple’s baby son Leo has a genetic disorder which earlier brought them back from Australia, where Angus played for the Waratahs, and has prompted them to rule out any further overseas contracts.

Kylie Robinson says it’s nice their Soul Food Farm venture – so long in the pipeline – has come together and that husband Eddie’s market gardening efforts are now paying off. The 35-year-old stay at home mum with two-year-old son Kalani and seven-month daughter Havana downplays her role in preparing the paddock, hand-planting the seedlings and then harvesting them – but Eddie reckons she did the hard yards too. There were daily commutes throughout last March and April from Waitetuna – where they were wrapping up a previous contract – to get the site ready on the Okete Rd dairy farm the pair now manage. They’d negotiated the lease of an extra plot of land with farm owner Alan Hall who was “kind enough to give us a crack at developing it”, says 41-year-old Eddie.

It was quite a process: killing off the grass to get bare land, levelling it, re-fencing, trucking in 30 cube of organic compost and transferring two polytunnels or greenhouses onto the site. Then Eddie set about handplanting thousands of seedlings which had been nurtured in a smaller polytunnel adjacent to the home they moved into in May. Soul Food Farm was finally up and running. While the enterprising pair provided The Herbal Dispensary with the produce from two harvests in that first week of business, it’ll soon be more full on as they also start supplying The Shack and Wallis Bistro with “earth-to-table” salad vegetables and herbs. Last month the couple had a shipping container, outfitted with windows and doors, moved on site to use for processing. Here the harvest is washed and spun in a converted washing machine, then dried on racks with fans – which takes minutes – before being chilled and delivered ready-to-eat the next day. This quick process ensures a shelf life of up to 10 days, Eddie says. Also in the packhouse is his homebuilt germination chamber –

an old fridge with a crockpot full of water plugged in on low – where trays of Kings seeds are stacked and begin to sprout. In the warm, insulated space turnips, radishes and spring onions take roughly three days to germinate while kale and rocket, for instance, need only about two. While they’ve started small, the couple plan to invest in some machinery to make things more efficient. A quick-cut greens harvester for instance could access and bag baby leaves from a 20-metre bed in minutes, compared with the half hour-plus it takes by hand. A seeder would be a boon, says Eddie, to plant more densely and accurately. And a paper pot transplanter is next on the wishlist. But the chief financial officer says not yet, Eddie quips, looking sideways at Kylie. “Maybe next year,” she says. From the positive response they’ve had to the venture, Kylie’s convinced Raglan locals do want to buy fresh organic produce and are mindful of where it comes from. “It’s neat to be part of that (trend),” she says. Edith Symes

Growing fresh produce is a labour of love for the Robinson family.
