Brakes put on Red Bus service from Amberley By ROBYN BRISTOW

The brakes have been put on a commuter bus service between Amberley and Christchurch due to park­and­ride stations being mooted for Rangiora and Kaiapoi. Red Bus chief executive Paul McNoe says the commercial risk of going ahead with an Amberley service is too high at present due to Environment Canterbury’s (ECan) proposal to establish the park­and­ride stations. The service by Red Bus to Amberley would have been independent of the company’s contracted services in the city and would not attract any funding. ‘‘We have contracts with ECan but also have some commercial operations such as the Darfield and Oxford bus services which Amberley would have been,’’ he says. Hawarden resident Andrew Mason is critical of the decision by Red Bus, which is owned by Christchurch City Holdings, fully owned subsidiary of the Christchurch City Council. He says due to competition with Ecan’s bus service undermining the city council’s bus service the residents of North Canterbury are forced to continue to use ‘‘NZTA’s substandard motorway adding at times an additional 90 minutes to what should be a 30 minute commute’’. ‘‘It’s truly disappointing that

the short sightedness of Environment Canterbury is simply exacerbating the years of short sightedness of the Christchurch City Council that got North Canterbury to this point,’’ says Mr Mason. He says people in North Canterbury were now being expected to drive their car from Amberley and beyond, a drive of about 30 minutes, to park their car then catch a bus into Christchurch.

❛You can’t surely with any honesty expect even one Amberley commuter to believe this is a serious alternative❜ — Andrew Mason ‘‘You can’t surely with any honesty expect even one Amberley commuter to believe this is a serious alternative,’’ he says. Mr Mason says the government is attempting to create a city that people want to work in and Environment Canterbury and the Christchurch City Council seem to be trying their level best to make it as hard as possible for anyone to get there. ‘‘It is no wonder that we have a problem when we have government organisations

fighting each other to maintain their commercial operations. ‘‘This lack of foresight and ability to make decisions that go further than just next week will see more and more businesses relocate out of Christchurch. ‘‘No wonder the motorway is the way it is every morning,’’ says Mr Mason, who adds that they used a private school bus service each morning to get their kids into various Christchurch schools. ‘‘It works brilliantly and is cost effective ­ something that seems to be unachievable by the council owned bus companies.’’ Red Bus ran a weekday bus service from Amberley prior to the earthquakes, but it stopped when patronage dropped after the quakes, making it uneconomic. However, Red Bus, responding to requests from Amberley locals, recently tested demand for a service. ‘‘The response to the survey was a little bit lighter than we expected,’’ says Mr McNoe. He said ECan could offer the incentive of park­and­ride, which was a benefit Red Bus could not offer. In an email to those who took part in the Amberley survey Red Bus said it ‘‘has no direct influence on ECan’s intention or ability to provide alternative services like park and ride. ‘‘If residents wish to debate the effectiveness or relevance of park­and­ride they should contact ECan.’’

A Sefton woman is heading to Vietnam and Cambodia to teach art to carers who run rehabilitation shelters for children caught up in the sex slave industry and human rights abuse. Corina Hazlett, who is a well known New Zealand art practitioner, says she is having a mix of emotions about her trip which range from excitement to anticipation of the unknown. Corina is a well known New Zealand art practitioner involved as a regular art tutor to inmates in some of New Zealand’s male prisons where she helps with recovery and rehabilitation through art. She is travelling to Vietnam and Cambodia under the umbrella of Hagar New Zealand and will travel with local Christchurch Hagar New Zealand representative contact Sarah Scott Webb. The connection with Hagar, which works with survivors of modern­day slavery and extreme human rights abuse around the world, began through Marina Shearer of Waiau. Marina runs a charity called ‘‘Love and Liberty’’ which is involved in fundraising and education to stop slavery and human trafficking.’ ‘‘My focus is on South East Asian and particularly child sex slavery,’’ says Marina who is now fundraising to help get Corina to Vietnam and Cambodia. We have a give a little page set up https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/ hagarvietnamarttherapy and I also own a Rhododendron Nursery called RhodoDirect in Rotherham. ‘‘This Spring I am donating all the proceeds from garden tour visits to this project.

It is understood that the Roadshow buskers will perform in the Rangiora central business district, possibly in High Street, the Good Street walkway and/or Conway Lane. While in Kaiapoi, they will possibly perform in Williams Street, outside the Ruataniwha Kaiapoi Civic Centre. It is also likely that they will perform two evening concerts ­ one in Rangiora, and one in Kaiapoi. Mr Pickering said they were working through logistics for the main performance hubs being Victoria Park and Trousselot Park, with additional

Kaikoura’s marine reserve successful Kaikoura’s marine reserve has proven a success in its first year of existence. The Kaikoura Marine Management Act came into being in August last year, following nine years of campaigning by Te Korowai o Te Tai o Morakura, creating a new marine reserve, whale and seal sanctuaries and new catch limits. ‘‘One year on, new marine protection at Kaikoura is well supported locally, but there is still much to be done,’’ Te Korowai chairman Larnce Wichman says. ‘‘The new fishing regulations, the whale sanctuary, three mataitai, two taiapure, and the Hikurangi Marine Reserve were all designed to help enrich and sustain marine life for present and future generations.’’ Mr Wichman says Te Korowai has been occupied over the last 12 months with the process to appoint legal ‘‘Guardians’’ for the coast and is now seeking feedback from the public. Now a year since the passing into law of the act, we would really like to ask people both locally and from outside how it has been received. We want to understand what the public know and how much they care?’’ Mr Wichman says the visible changes for the public have been the signs placed by the Department of Conservation (DOC) and the Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI) along SH1 and at launching ramps showing boundaries and providing information about take or no­take zones and fishing regulations. ‘‘There was a strong education drive through last summer by MPI and DOC staff to get the messages across with printed information and patrols by officers and honoraries. ‘‘Feedback to Te Korowai has been mixed. There has been a good pick­up and acceptance by locals about the changes. However, there is a general feeling that more and better education and signage would help even more. ‘‘Visitors and boaties from other areas are another dimension and more of a

We think that the best insurance is to have the Kaikoura public take pride of ownership over the new measures, adding hundreds of extra eyes to see that people are doing the right thing.’’ MPI reports it is generally happy with the level of compliance for recreational fishers since the introduction of the new regulations. It says it has been a busy time for staff and honorary fisheries officers (HFOs) since the regulations were introduced in September last year, with the majority of the fishers inspected respecting the daily limits and minimum sizes. But there is always room for improvement of compliance to the fisheries regulations. Last summer MPI staff and HFOs found more than 100 people breaking the new regulations. Three of these cases led to court proceedings. Ten people were caught fishing within the new marine reserve. To assist in the education of recreational fishers within the area, MPI

and HFOs have put up 170 new signs along the coast and distributed 30,000 educational brochures. MPI staff and HFOs regularly patrol the area with more than 300 recreational patrols along the coast and at sea within the last 10 months. Reports of any suspicious fishing activity can be reported by calling 0800 4 POACHER (0800 476224). All calls are confidential. Mike Aviss, of DOC, says DOC staff ‘‘gave special emphasis around the new Hikurangi Marine Reserve, which DOC administers. This has been scaled back over the winter, but regular checks are still made, with, pleasingly, few offences’’. Ian Croucher, Te Korowai member and charter fisher representative, says he has been heartened to see Kaikoura’s charter fishing fleet, of seven boats, working towards a code of practice for sustainable fishing, ‘‘which is a first for charter fishing anywhere in New Zealand’’.

Nursery School fun and games By SHELLEY TOPP

Spring into Organics and enjoy your good health with your local certified retailer. Us. 1639692

A gala day last Sunday for families, to introduce the Rangiora High School Nursery School to North Canterbury, featured an obstacle and cross­country race for two to eight­year­olds. Held at Rangiora’s Dudley Park the event proved popular, attracting a big crowd of adults and children. It was the first time the community event had been held and focused on fun. Aside from the races for the children, and one for their parents, there was a wide selection of activities including bouncy castles, a sausage sizzle, face painting, bubble balls, crazy spuds, coffee carts, American doughnuts and a photo booth. The event was run in conjunction with the Tiddlers Multisport Trust. It received a lot of support from the community and a team of nursery school volunteers, and now looks certain to become an annual fundraiser for the nursery school. ‘‘It was generously supported by many North Canterbury businesses,’’ said head teacher, Helga McClay, of Oxford. One of New Zealand’s oldest early childhood centres, the Nursery School was established in 1938 with Sunday’s gala event helping mark 78 years of community­ based, not­for­profit, early childhood education for 3­5 year­old children. The school, on the corner of East Belt and Wales Street, Rangiora, and has a large outdoor play area with a wide range of equipment. All funds raised will be used to extend the play area, and provide new resources, including wooden climbing boxes, water and sand­play equipment, physical education equipment, outdoor tables and a new storage shed.

Xmas deadline for plan A preliminary draft red zone recovery plan is likely to be ready by Christmas. Waimakariri Mayor David Ayers says a team is being put together to start work on a discussion document in early October, with the aim of completing a preliminary draft plan ready for public engagement by the end of the year. The final draft will go to the ‘‘relevant Minister’’ in the middle of next year. Two weeks ago, Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee asked the Waimakariri District Council to prepare a draft recovery plan to identify the intended long term use of residential red zone land in the district. The preliminary draft plan will include input from the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (CERA), Environment Canterbury and Ngai Tahu. ‘‘We are aware of the April 18 deadline for CERA, so there will need to be transitional provisions for us to complete the recovery plan process,’’ Mr Ayers says. Recovery plans have been used several

times to help speed up work considered essential to earthquake recovery in the region, including the recent renewed red zone recovery offer and the Land Use Recovery Plan (LURP). ‘‘The LURP has been very important for Waimakariri and greater Christchurch because it has enabled us to use elements of the Urban Development Strategy to help plan for the recovery from the earthquakes,’’ Mr Ayers says. Once the preliminary draft plan is finished there will be four weeks of public engagement into February next year, and will include formal hearings if required. The council has completed 38 out of 50 recovery projects, with most of the remaining work awaiting the outcome of the red zone recovery plan process. ‘‘This is a major step from our point of view. The discussion document is a major piece of work and it will help us to move forward in areas where uncertainty remains around earthquake recovery,’’ Mr Ayers says.

Summer season in Kaikoura is near By GLENN ORMSBY Spring is here and we are looking forward to another good summer in the nature and wildlife capital of New Zealand. We are noticing an increase in campervans and tourists arriving after a quiet winter and our accommodation providers and local tourist operators are reporting that their forward bookings for Christmas, January and February are looking good. With the summer season approaching there are many great experiences for you to enjoy in Kaikoura. We are working with a major tourism operator to develop a new tourist attraction, so watch this space. The recent announcement that China Southern Airlines will be flying into Christchurch three days a week from December and going all year round is fantastic for the whole Christchurch and Canterbury region. Places like Hanmer Springs and ourselves should notice a real increase in tourist numbers. We need to be encouraging our district as a winter destination. It gets hot in China in the summer, whereas they can come here and see snow on the mountains and the beautiful scenery ­ it’s a fantastic alternative.

The Canterbury Mayoral Forum’s recent Canterbury Regional Economic Development Strategy announcement will provide positive outcomes for the whole region and particularly in the smaller areas like Kaikoura. Christchurch is the hub and the spokes are the regions, so we can expect some real benefits as we continue to work together. We are continuing to explore options to address the issue of rocks in the South Bay and we are working with Environment Canterbury and the harbour master, so we can increase the number of cruise ships arriving here and attract bigger cruise ships. If we can attract more and bigger cruise ships there will be benefits for our neighbours as well. Kaikoura has a busy couple of months coming up, beginning with the Kaikoura Hop this weekend (September 17­20), followed by our biggest event of the year Seafest on Saturday, October 3, and then the Kaikoura Trotting Cup meeting on Marlborough Anniversary Day, Monday, November 2. Bring on the summer! For more information go to the Kaikoura i­Site website www.kaikoura.co.nz. * Glenn Ormsby is Destination Kaikoura general manager

Dear Editor Most readers will know there are nine months in a human pregnancy. Less will know that annually, World foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Day falls on the ninth day of the ninth month. While only some may know that drinking alcohol during pregnancy can be extremely harmful to the developing baby. Evidence that alcohol can cause miscarriages, premature births and a life time of disabilities for the person exposed to it prenatally is conclusive. The World Health Organisation states ‘‘there’s no safe time­no safe amount.’’ Last week on World FASD Day, a Blue Butterfly Prevent FASD Campaign was launched in North Canterbury aimed at raising awareness that together, both male and female can be responsible for preventing this condition. Iced cakes with a Blue Butterfly on top were delivered to the Hurunui high schools, medical centres and the Mayor’s office. Blue Butterfly lapel badges were distributed, to be worn as a reminder not to drink alcohol during pregnancy and to support all who could become pregnant, to abstain. The Blue Butterfly comes from Brazilian folklore which tells when many butterflies flap their wings a storm is created ­ when many beautiful fragile people work together, change will occur.

Royal connection . . . Helen Grimmer with the crystal found by her great, great grandfather, PHOTO: SUPPLIED James Grant.

Crystal’s royal connection By ROBYN BRISTOW Scottish ancestry was revisited when North Canterbury woman, Helen Grimmer travelled across the world to Scotland to attend a family reunion of her maternal grandmother’s family. It was by far the longest trip of anyone who attended the reunion where 100 descendants gathered, says Helen who lives on the outskirts of Amberley and attended with her cousin who was born in Christchurch but now lives in Ireland. The highlight of the trip was not just meeting her descendants but a celebration of a connection to the Royal family ­ a 50lb crystal ­ a huge black stone found by James Grant, Helen’s great, great grandfather. ‘‘My cousin and I correspond about family research and due to her efforts the cairngorm crystal was located in the Queen’s collection in Balmoral. ‘‘A relation in Scotland was keen to organise a reunion and liaised with Balmoral so we could see the crystal.’’ The crystal was given to Queen Victoria who paid Mr Grant one pound for every pound of weight ­ 50 pound which today would be worth 3000 pounds. A small part of the Cairngorm stone was then used to create an intricate silver brooch for Prince Albert which was recently featured on the Antiques Roadshow. Helen says the crystal doesn’t look like much but when cut and polished it would be the ‘‘sort of gem seen in Scottish jewellery popular in brooches, worn by dancers on their hats’’. ‘‘It was like a gold rush back in the

1850’s everyone was hunting for the crystals. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert were very interested in the crystals which were near Balmoral in the highlands. ‘‘My ancestor found the crystal ­ the second biggest ever found ­ in a pothole in a river and transported it on horseback over the mountains to give it to the Queen,’’ she says. Helen says they were invited to Balmoral to attend the Sunday Church service at Craithie Kirk with her Majesty the Queen and members of the Royal Family including the Duke of Edinburgh, the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay ­ Charles and Camilla’s title in Scotland ­ The Duke of York, Prince Andrew, the Duke and Countess of Wessex, Prince Edward and Sophie and their two children were all at the church service. ‘‘We didn’t get to talk with any of them as they are on their summer holidays,’’ Helen said. Helen’s great, great grandfather had 12 children. ‘‘I am descended from his sixth child Christina, the mother of my grandmother. ‘‘The home she was born in Ryvoan Bothy ­ the remains which are now used by the RSPB, a nature conservation authority, as a hut for walkers in the Cairngorms,’’ says Helen who visited the bothy, a basic shelter ‘‘My grandmother emigrated to New Zealand in 1913 and married a Scotsman out here. ‘‘I have always been very aware of my Scottish heritage as well as my father’s English heritage ­ his relations came out on one of the first four ships, The Cressy,’’ says Helen.

Fun classes . . . Local children are encouraged to explore their own imagination during PHOTO: ARTS IN OXFORD Saturday art classes at the Arts in Oxford gallery.

‘View & Do’ classes If you are looking for an opportunity to explore your creative side, then Arts in Oxford could be the destination for you. For the first time in its five years of operation, Arts in Oxford will be holding an exhibition of work by artists who will also tutor a workshop in the workshop space located behind the gallery. Titled ‘‘View & Do’’, the exhibition will involve five artists who work in a diverse range of mediums. Renate Galetzka, a Christchurch based ceramic artist, will display her unique ceramic garden spear sculptures, and run a workshop to enable students to create their own. Watercolour artist Ivan Button and painter Zoe Wiseman, Rangiora­ based artists, will both run two day weekend workshops. Ivan is a very popular tutor who has run several successful workshops at the gallery in the past. Zoe’s ‘‘abstracting a natural form’’ workshop will help students work through from exploratory drawings to a final mixed media abstract work. Oxford artist Celia Wilson will show how local, natural pigments (sourced from rocks, clays and plants) can be made into artists paint. Bookbinder Tessa Warburton, who is also resident in Oxford, will be

teaching how to make a beautifully crafted box. Gallery manager Rachel McRobb says one of the most common questions asked about workshops is ‘‘do I need experience?’’ and the answer is most definitely ‘‘No!’’ ‘‘All of the workshops at Arts in Oxford are geared towards novices, as well as those with more experience.’’ Meanwhile, every Saturday afternoon in term three the workshop has been buzzing with tutor and qualified teacher Zoe Wiseman running regular Saturday art classes for children. ‘‘These are fun classes where children are encouraged to experiment with a wide range of art materials, explore their own imagination and develop their individual creativity. ‘‘They have been such a success that they will be continuing in term four. ‘‘Thanks to generous funding from Creative Communities Waimakariri all the workshops are great value for money.’’ Details of all the workshops, as well as times and cost can be found on the gallery website www.artsinoxford.com, on the workshops page, or by phoning the gallery on (03) 3121639.

North Island drivers have thrown down a gauntlet to the locals for this year’s Ashley Forest Rallysprint. Regular national rally championship competitors Sloan Cox from Rotorua and David Thexton, Auckland, Nick Speedy also from Auckland and Brad Stewart and Don McLean, both from Dannevirke, are all heading south. Cox will certainly fancy his chances with a Mitsubishi Evo 8 hillclimb special. Thexton and Speedy will drive modified Subaru Imprezas and Stewart and McLean Subaru Imprezas. Those likely to challenge the northern invasion include defending champion Matt Summerfield and Kaiapoi’s Richard Baddock. Both will also be driving Subaru Imprezas. Last year Summerfield’s victory was achieved at the wheel of a proven event winner in the form of Steve Murphy’s hybrid Mitsubishi Cordia V8. This car won in 2004, 2008 and 2009 when Murphy drove and 2011 when world rally championship contender Hayden Paddon was at the wheel. This year’s field also includes the 1985 winner Trevor Crowe. Crowe was the first South Island driver to win. That year he drove a V8 powered Toyota Starlet. This time out it will be a very modified Subaru Justy. Other regulars include Chris Hey from Mosgiel in a turbo assisted Toyota MR2. Hey will be looking to again win his class for two wheel drive cars. While overall victory will be the ultimate aim of the leading contenders, the desire to go under the 1 minute mark around the 1.7 kilometre mountain track will also be on their minds. Recent history suggests that any body that eclipses this barrier, will be in with a shot of winning the title. The history of this popular event dates back to 1979, when Steve Millen driving a Vauxhall Chevette twin cam, won on a down hill course. In 1980 the rallysprint used the present course for the first time, which has a climb to the top and then dramatic views of the sea as they look down to the finish line. The course record of 56.57 has stood since 1999 when the late Kim Austin won in his Mitsubishi Starion V8. Austin also won in 1993 and 1998. The first competitor to break the 1 minute barrier was three times New

Millen won the event in 1988 in a Mazda RX7, setting a time of 59.14 in the final run. Other winners include the late Possum Bourne (1989,1991 and 2000) Reg Cook,1982 and 1984, Neil Allport 1983 and Marty Roestenberg 2002 and

2005. Apart from Crowe, Paddon and Summerfield, the only other South Island names on the trophy are Glenn Frew, John Silcock and Chris West. The format for the Rallysprint involves qualifying rounds on Saturday and sudden death shoot out’s on Sunday with the fast 32 cars involved. The day also includes class run offs.

Chrysler . . . Ian Lamb poses with his 1930 Chrysler 77 Royal Coupe.

TLS1200

Tucked away in a modern garage along Rangiora’s West Belt is a motoring gem from 1930. Ian and Lyndsay Lamb’s elegant, left­ hand drive Chrysler 77 Royal Coupe began life in the United States. A luxury, top­line, car in its day, with a 4.6­litre, 6­cylinder engine, it would have cost $US2010 to buy new. It was originally owned by J.F. Oates, a wealthy Alabama Chrysler dealership owner, who was also a racing­car driver. He sold the car to Eugene Winkler in 1930 with 3500 miles (5632 kilometres) on the speedometer. Little is known about what happened to the car under its new ownership, except that the last time Eugene registered it was in 1941. It sat idle for more than 60 years after that before changing hands again, in 2004, this time for a long journey to New Zealand. There is speculation that Eugene enlisted for World War II, but was killed and never returned home. The car, was imported to New Zealand by Roger Berry, of Takanini, a friend of the Lambs. The Lambs purchased it from him in 2007 when it had a mere 98,000 miles (157,715 km) on the speedometer. Ian has clocked up another 12,000 miles (19,308km) since then. He’s added a new roof, which is a hard­top covered with fabric, and a radiator, but otherwise the car was in good condition when he bought it. Even the velour upholstery, and exterior paintwork are original. To keep the paintwork looking good Ian cleans it with kerosene and linseed oil. ‘‘That brings it up nice and shiny,’’ he says. He’s also added essentials of the modern age, indicator lights and seatbelts, plus a tow bar, to pull their caravan. Ian, who is a retired engineer, made and fitted the tow bar himself at Towsafe Towbars, his son’s Christchurch business. The original car did not have indicator lights, because hand signals were used back then, and there were no seat belts. However, Ian says hand signals are not understood by many motorists today, and seatbelts are now a safety requirement. The two­door Chrysler 77 Royal Coupe has a top speed of 77 miles an hour (123 kmh). ‘‘That’s why it’s called 77,’’ Ian says. It’s not a wide car, which means that although it is a left­hand drive it’s ‘‘good as gold’’ to drive on New Zealand roads. It doesn’t have a heater, but does have all kinds of other top­of­the­range accessories of its time, including a golf­ club compartment, and rumble seat in the back which, when the boot is

Rubbish ruins spectacle By AMANDA BOWES

Lake Sumner and its surrounds are a popular place for recreation and visits. Most respect the area which looks like a picture postcard as you drive up Lake Sumner Road. The sides of the road however tell a different story. Local resident Bridie Power had noticed the glinting of bottles on the roadside while driving to work and decided to find out just how much rubbish there was. Walking and driving just a few kilometres down the road, she was dismayed at the amount of glass and plastic bottles along with other waste that had been thrown out of cars. She only collected from one side of the road and said there was still more waste in the tree lines bordering the roadside and paddocks. ‘‘It is disgusting people are treating this beautiful area as a rubbish tip, there is no reason at all to not be taking rubbish home with them.’’

Kiwi Farm Alpacas -Who we are We are a group of nine alpaca breeders located throughout the Canterbury region who have combined resources under the banner of Kiwi Farm Alpacas (KFA) to enable us to provide both a wider choice of product to our customers and utilise a wider range of expertise. For all your alpaca requirements we can supply the spectrum of customer needs from gorgeous pets to high-quality stud animals.

If you have any queries we are always happy to utilise our combined knowledge to help out either in getting started, growing your herd, working through problems or just talking alpacas.

Alpaca Workshop Mark down September 27th on your calendar as KFA will be running its first one-day workshop in Swannanoa, North Canterbury to give people wishing to enter, or new to, the industry a chance to learn more about both the animals and the industry itself. Alpacas are bred for their fibre and the discussion on the industry will include topics such as desirable traits in the alpaca fleece, shearing, fleece handling and preparation and processing options. There will be penned alpacas on site so the animals can be seen close up. The workshop presentation will include an introduction to alpaca farming, health regimes, feed, fencing and birthing. A question-and-answer session will give you the opportunity to ask any questions about what has been presented during the day and anything else about alpacas in general. Alpacas are a lovely animal to have on the farm and a genuine option for farmers or lifestyle block holders to put on their land. If you would like any of the presenters to visit your farm to have reassurance that alpacas could be an option for you, please let us know at the workshop. See below for details, email info@kiwifarmalpacas.co.nz or phone Wayne on 027 8445-794.

Spring storm warning With the spring storm season approaching North Canterbury electricity lines company, MainPower, is warning people about the danger of trimming any trees near power lines. MainPower engineering manager Peter Hurford says in the past few years the region has experienced significant weather events from September to November. ‘‘Strong winds have the potential to bring down trees and branches which, along with other debris, can be carried long distances and into contact with power lines, resulting in power outages,’’ he says. But he warns it is a specialised job to trim trees that are too close or overhanging power lines. Mr Hurford says MainPower has a team of experienced and qualified utility arborists, trained to work on vegetation near live power lines and MainPower budgeted significant funds

each year to trim and maintain trees around high voltage lines. ‘‘Keeping trees clear of power lines requires specialist skills. ‘‘In addition to safety, there are other considerations that tree owners need to be aware of, including growth limit zones. ‘‘It is really important to use tree clearance contractors who are competent to cut trees safely around overhead power lines,’’ he says. Around a third of MainPower’s fault call outs are caused by trees and branches interfering with power poles and lines, particularly in high winds and snow. The Electricity (Hazards from Trees) Regulations 2003 set rules about who has the responsibility for cutting or trimming trees that encroach power lines and prescribe safe distances from power lines and other electricity network equipment.

This promises to be a belt­expanding task as choice will not be easy, Sheena says. The Cray Coast Cuisine demonstrations open with ‘Beer School’. A quirky way to start your festival day but do take the chance to learn why there is no wrong beer ­ just the right beer for you, Sheena says. And it includes beer tasting. Masterchef contestants Glenda Clark, of Christchurch, and Hayley Bilton, of Tauranga, put in an appearance. Kiwi Kai presents beautiful kaimoana dishes, Seafest cooking MC Jax Hamilton, of Christchurch, ‘‘needs little introduction Scenic run . . . Runners and walkers converged on Kaikoura on Saturday for the with her much­loved style, flair and PHOTO: SUPPLIED cheeky sense of humour’’, Sheena says. annual Whale Run. With a few sea shanties of his own Celtic one man band Steve McDonald opens the festival and then ‘‘there’s no time to catch your breath with live cover bands The New Entrants and Ricochet as they pump it under the Seafest Big Top’’. Tickets for both events are available at Kaikoura i­Site or by phoning 0800 4732337. You can buy online at www.seafest.co.nz where you can also find heaps of information.

Kaikoura’s Seafest is set to celebrate its 21st birthday next month. The festival of fun is fast approaching, as Seafest 2015 promises to be an event of ‘‘oceanic proportions’’, when it is held at the Takahanga Domain on Friday and Saturday, October 2­3. Seafest kicks off with the ‘‘Big Top Bash’’ on Friday, October 2, from 7.30pm to midnight, with live cover bands ‘‘The New Entrants’’ and ‘‘Ricochet the Big Top’’ to entertain those dancing revellers. ‘‘You don’t want to miss the untamed aroma that wafts through the crowd from the Horse Shack Food Co with their traditional smoked and slow cooked meats,’’ organiser Sheena Hamilton says. Seafest Day is for those who enjoy good food, good company and a good time, she says. ‘‘This year Seafest celebrates life by the sea with new festival food stalls offering abundant seafood delights, with fantastic choices for ‘landlubbers’ as well. Don’t walk past the Sea Shacks. That’s where you will find Seafood Paella, crayfish and the ‘catch of the day’. ‘‘Choose from a classic Pimms, craft beers, quality regional wines, or a festival favourite ­ ‘Blue Goo’.’’

and 10km runs on Saturday, Mrs Ormsby says. ‘‘Next year is our 10th anniversary so it will be very exciting and we have already set the date for September 10.’’

Record entries were received for this year’s Kaikoura Whale Run. Organiser Michelle Ormsby says 471 people participated in the 9th annual Whale Run, organised by Kaikoura Suburban School on Saturday, with runners coming from Tauranga, Hamilton, Wellington, Nelson, Marlborough and Canterbury. ‘‘It was awesome. We had a fantastic day. We had a record number of competitors and a lot of late entries ­ it was absolutely mindblowing. ‘‘We are very thrilled and the atmosphere was fantastic. Everything worked very well. By the time of the presentations at Donegal House, we were able to present the prizes outside.’’ Last year a record 460 entries were received for the event which has grown each year since the first event was held in 2007, when there were around 70 runners. Entries were up in the half marathon

Black canvas for mural By ROBYN BRISTOW A World War One memorial mural will come to life on a black canvas in Markham Street, Amberley next weekend. The bare concrete block wall on the corner of Markham Street and Douglas Road has been transformed in recent days into a Dulux Ebony colour in preparation for internationally recognised street artist Bobby Hung (aka Berst) to bring it to life. ‘‘There will be a combination of painting styles on the mural from myself and Danae (Ripley), who will also be painting parts of the mural, and combined together the black base is the perfect colour to unite our works,’’ he says. Project organiser Aleisha Frazer says it’s planned to recruit three local art students to join in the experience when

the painting begins. Peter Jackson from PJ Painters transformed the bare bricks to ebony on Monday in support of the project, with Dulux paint providing the 60 litres of paint needed for the mural. ‘‘It is good timing to paint it black leading up to the Rugby World Cup and ultimately on Friday September 25 a mural will be spray painted over the top,’’ says Aleisha. The project has support from North Canterbury Hire, Canterbury Traffic Control Ltd, and the Amberley Lions Club. Aleisha says everyone is welcome to come along and see the mural come to life. ‘‘Bobby estimates it will only take him two days, so if the weather is kind to us it will be all done over the weekend of September 25 to 27.

It is hope that will sustain us in the difficult times and give confidence for the future, including what happens as we age and our mortality confronts us. Hope is grounded in reality rather than being a sentimental wish, having come through those difficult times.

It has been a long winter, and a tough one with frosts regularly occurring well into September. The human body has not been immune with various seasonal ailments that seem to take a long time to shake off. And then there is the likelihood of an El Nino summer. It becomes easy to see the glass as somewhat less than half full. Is there a way forward? The starting point is to acknowledge that life will have some smooth times and also some challenging times. The question then becomes, how do we deal with the challenges? The Christian belief is that life is not a

Playing ‘evil’ character is fun By DAVID HILL Playing an ‘‘evil’’ character is ‘‘very exciting’’. Celine Goulding is playing Elpheba, the wicked witch of the west, in the Dale Hartley School of Speech and Drama’s (DHSSD) production of ‘‘The Wizard of Oz‘‘, during September 30 to October 3. ‘‘It’s certainly scary how much I enjoy being mean to people on stage. I don’t consider myself naturally an evil person, but I’m not playing myself.’’ Celine, a year 12 student at Middleton Grange School in Christchurch, has played a ‘‘semi­evil’’ character before, Ash a gypsy robber in last year’s DHSSD production of ‘‘The Snow Queen’’. ‘‘She was bad at the start, and then became friends with the hero, but she wasn’t the main villain. It’s very exciting to play the main villain this time.’’ Celine says she is enjoying preparing for a whole school production, instead of the usual senior and junior productions, featuring children ranging in age from 5 to 18 years. ‘‘They did a whole school production of ‘Peter Pan’ for the 10th anniversary and it was so cool, but that was before I joined the school, so I’ve always wanted to be in a whole school production. ‘‘When Dale (Hartley­Brown) said we were doing it this year, I was so excited. It’s very exciting to see the little ones getting good roles with kids so much older than them. They are rising to the occasion and doing a fantastic job.’’ She says ‘‘The Wizard of Ox’’ is ‘‘one of those classic shows that everyone is familiar with and knows the

She has been a DHSSD student since she was in year 6 at school and in her first show played the footman, who was Prince Charming’s ‘‘sidekick’’, in ‘‘Snow White’’. She has played a part in school productions each year since then and recently had a minor role in the North Canterbury Musical Society production of ‘‘Beauty and the Beast’’. ‘‘I love it and I would love to pursue a career in drama. The ultimate goal would be on the stage, otherwise in film or media. ‘‘Acting would be really cool, but if that’s not to be, maybe a director or broadcasting.’’ The DHSSD’s adaption of ‘‘The

Wizard of Oz’’ is based on the Frank Baum novels and includes the characters made famous by the original movie. It is being directed by Dale Hartley­ Brown, with Bryony Jamison as assistant director. ‘‘The Wizard of Oz’’ will be performed at the Rangiora Town Hall during the school holidays, with 2pm matinees daily from Wednesday to Saturday, September 30 to October 3, and 7.30pm performances on Thursday and Friday, October 1 to 2. Tickets cost $15 plus booking fee and can be purchased at Rangiora Town Hall Cinemas or online at www.townhallcinemas.co.nz.

Earthworks . . . After extensive earthworks, Murray Tilson’s site is ready for the workshop PHOTO: AMANDA BOWES to be built.

Building site challenges When Murray Tilson decided to build a new engineering workshop on his rural property near Hawarden, he had several factors to consider before work could begin. Before any site development started, a Land Use Resource Consent from the Hurunui District Council was the first step. Once that had been approved, Murray called in the services of Dwyer Lewis Earthworks to visit the property and evaluate the chosen site. Because the site area had two road frontages it was decided the gravel road off the main road was the best place for site and public access. Site holes were dug to find the clay pan and then a deeper bore hole to assess the soil profile and suitability for building. Earthworks began once the site for the building had been measured out and the fall of land established. The first 300mm of topsoil was taken off until the clay pan was reached which was

used as the primary base. As there was a large pile of earth from the excavation, an earth bund was created to help with noise control from the workshop. The base had hardfill put in ­ AB40 river run type of light rock/gravel and then 20mm of sand over that. The concrete will be the last to be poured. Drainage of water runoff was addressed by creating swales that would take excess water away from the building site, slowing down runoff and dispersing it. Murray says they booked the earthwork contractors in advance and when they arrived everything was done to a high standard and efficiently. Once the site was ready for the building to begin, all that was needed was the building consent, which arrived last week. The standard colour steel shed will enable Murray to do some of his engineering from home. His goal is to gradually do more of his work on site lessening the need to travel.

Stock welfare managed Changes to wine competition The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) has complimented farmers on how they have managed animal welfare through the prolonged North Canterbury drought. Canterbury­based MPI animal welfare manager Peter Hyde says there have been very few animal welfare issues to deal with in North Canterbury. ‘‘Sheep are a bit lighter than ideal, but not to the extent where they are below the minimum standard that breaches of the Animal Welfare Act.’’ Mr Hyde says farmers have adopted different management strategies to maintain the condition of their animals. ‘‘Many farmers have been feeding out since January. Some farmers have found grazing outside the drought affected areas. ‘‘Most farmers would have reduced their stock numbers, which has included selling off capital stock. No matter which strategy has been used, it has resulted in a significant loss of income to many North Canterbury farmers.’’ He says he was impressed with the support that had been provided by many organisations. ‘‘North Canterbury veterinarians and Beef and Lamb New Zealand have run very well attended field days to assist farmers with their tactics to manage through the drought. ‘‘Federated Farmers has organised the supply of donated feed. ‘‘The Rural Support Trust has visited 530 farms to check how farming families are coping with the difficult situation.

The Canterbury Agricultural and Pastoral Show’s international aromatic wine competition will accept red and rose wines for the first time this year.

Judges chairman Terry Copeland says the competition is open to all wines made in an aromatic style and the decision is made to accept red and rose wines to better reflect consumer demand. ‘‘By extending the competition classes, we’re able to recognise that more and more consumers want aromatic styles and this has extended itself into the red and rose spectrum. ‘‘Winemakers are now making styles that are less encumbered with oak and Animal welfare . . .

Young farmer entries open Farm field day Young farmers from around the country will be sharpening their agricultural skills over the coming weeks as the 2016 ANZ Young Farmer Contest gets under way next month. District finals run from October to December and are the entry level for the annual Young Farmer Contest. Entry is open and free to all paid members of New Zealand Young Farmers between the ages of 15 to 31 (entrants must be under 31 years of age on January 1, 2016). The top eight district final competitors from each region will go through to their regional final, with the top performer at the regional level earning a spot at the grand final where they will vie for the coveted title of Young Farmer Contest Champion. Last year Hurunui YFC member James Hoban won the North Canterbury district final, before going on to win the Tasman regional final, becoming the first North Canterbury resident to appear in the grand final since 1993. He finished fourth in the grand final held at Taupo. This year’s North Canterbury district final will be held at Culverden, with the date to be confirmed. Check out the contest website

The next Beef and Lamb New Zealand (BLNZ) farming for profit field day to be held in North Canterbury will be held at Henry Pinckney’s farm at Waiau. To be held on October 15, the field day is one of several organised by BLNZ which focus on issues identified as being critical in a given region. From these issues, a programme of activities is developed to help farmers and the local community. The activity may not always involve an on­farm project, but will always be linked to a section of the sheep and beef sector’s value chain. The farming for profit programmes share information and monitor the progress of a whole community rather that just an individual farm. ‘‘It is all about coming up with local solutions for local needs. The practical Contestant . . . Hurunui YFC member James tools are given to help improve farm businesses,’’ says BLNZ.

A DairyNZ field day aims to give local farmers ‘‘feed tactics’’ to help manage the spring conditions. Oxford farmer Cameron Henderson is hosting the field day on Thursday, October 1, and he hopes farmers will learn some ‘‘low cost options to get through the spring’’. ‘‘We’ve had really cold growing conditions this year, perhaps 2­3 degrees cooler than normal and people can’t really buy in extra feed as we don’t have the cash flow we would normally have at this time of year. ‘‘If we’re not able to grow it ourselves, it’s a bit of a struggle to find the feed we need.’’ He encourages farmers to take time out of their busy milking schedules. ‘‘Everyone seems to be pretty busy running with less staff this year, so this is probably the first opportunity in a couple months for people to come together for a barbecue and this year it’s more important than most to get off farm and share ideas. ‘‘The season seems to going alright apart from the cold weather, the cows are healthy and calving is nearly over, so hopefully we can start taking a few weekends off soon.’’ The field day begins with a cuppa at

Sunny skies for tennis Sunny skies saw a huge turnout at the Amberley Tennis Club’s open day last Sunday. There were about 25 juniors on the courts supervised by a few great parents making sure that everyone was involved and safe. Their efforts were rewarded with a sausage sizzle. There were a similar number of adults who came to play, with some first timers seeing what the club had to offer. Some were interested in playing competitively, but many were interested in the Wednesday night social tennis which consists of teams of three playing a round­robin competition with a

handicapped method of scoring. Many have the next few Sundays marked down in their diary to be at Amberley Tennis club with a Sunday barbecue being run for the rest of September. People are asked to bring a small plate of food next week and come along and enjoy another day of tennis. They are also asked to put their name down for either the social or competitive options for the season. Because of the large numbers of juniors wanting to play they are invited to turn up at 12 noon or sooner if supervised by a parent or guardian. Adults will start their games off at 1pm.

Race winner . . . Regan Todd, the Woodend Beach foreman for trainer Mark Jones, with Saveapatrol after the pacer was an impressive winner at the Rangiora Harness Racing Club’s PHOTO: SHELLEY TOPP trials at Rangiora on Wednesday last week.

Setback for pacer By SHELLEY TOPP An impressive win at the Rangiora Harness Racing Club’s trials on Wednesday last week by Saveapatrol, was exciting news for his owner Grant Hatton. But a short time later the news could not have been worse. His racing future is now uncertain, after badly injuring a tendon. Trainer, Mark Jones said on his website www.markjonesracing.co.nz last Sunday that it was the worst kind of phone call any trainer could have to make to an owner. The tendon will be scanned this week. ‘‘At this stage, our only option looks like doing an operation and giving him a decent break, so he’ll be out for at least six months,’’ he said. ‘‘The vet didn’t give

us much hope of racing him again, but I am confident (that) with the right rehab and all the work Regan (foreman Regan Todd) puts into looking after him that we will get him back racing. I have no doubts he was a serious winning chance in the New Zealand Cup.’’ The brilliant, striking­looking son of Christian Cullen and Rondel Franco has only raced 18 times for 11 wins, one second and one third for $145,618 in stakemoney. He hadn’t raced since July 3 this year when he won the $18,500 Thames Cup at Alexandra Park in Auckland. The Woodend Beach­trained pacer was due to race in the $25,000 Hannon Memorial at Oamaru last Sunday, and was nominated for the $700,000 New Zealand Trotting Cup at Addington Raceway on Tuesday, November 10.

Bowls club opening The greens were too soft for a roll up at the opening of the season at the Woodend Bowling Club, but a large attendance still enjoyed opening day last Saturday week. It is hoped bowling can get under way this Saturday. President Mike Carpenter welcomed Waimakariri Mayor David Ayers and Waimakariri MP Matt Doocey to the club along with patroness Jane Moody. Mr

Carpenter thanked members who had worked hard over the winter to prepare the green and the grounds. A defibrillator machine, purchased with the proceeds of a Bookarama run by club members, was on show. Noelene Johnstone and Henry Eder delivered the first jack and blow, but as the greens were too soft to continue members retired inside for afternoon tea.

Rotary Club of Rangiora KOWAl RIVER - AMBERLY DOMAIN BANK STABILISATION WORK

THE ROTARY BOOK FAIR

Environment Canterbury will be undertaking bank stabilisation work along the Kowai River boundary at the Amberley Domain, on behalf of the Hurunui District Council, between 21 and 30 September 2015. Work will be undertaken between 7.00am and 6.00pm daily.

Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd October Rangiora Borough School Hall

Public access will be restricted to parts of the domain designated as a work site for Health and Safety purposes over this period as heavy plant work and tree felling will be undertaken. Areas affected are: • Amberley Domain; Kowai River frontage between a point approximately 200 metres upstream of the domain down to the Lawcocks Road bridge including the adjacent carpark at times.

Our club supports many groups and individuals in the Rangiora district each year.

• Kowai River; south from Lawcocks Road Bridge to a point approximately 600 metres down stream.

AIMS Games trip a success Oxford Area School students had an experience to remember at the AIMS Games at Mount Maunganui last week. The school sent up a boys’ football and a girls’ netball to compete in the annual event for the first time. Netballer Shani Clist says she enjoyed the games, but found the competition tough. ‘‘I really enjoyed AIMS Games because there were challenging netball games that were very fun to play, even though it was frustrating that the teams were so great at netball. ‘‘But the other good thing about the

netball was that everybody was very kind and friendly to us.’’ Shani says the activities other than the daily sports were ‘‘awesome’’ and included a disco, going to see a movie and going in the hot pools. ‘‘My favourite was the disco because I got to meet lots of new people from all around New Zealand and it was cool to learn about how different it is up north. ‘‘I would definitely recommend going to AIMS Games because it’s a great opportunity to travel to a new place, meet new people your age and to compete in blood­pumping games.’’

For further Information please contact Environment Canterbury on 0800 324 636 or ecinfo@ecan.govt.nz. Point of contact is Phil Rhine, Area Engineer.
