Defining the Waipara Valley district A stylised ‘‘wind­swept grapevine’’ will soon be helping define the Waipara environment. Crafted by Raymond Herber from his Iron Ridge studio, the sculpture will stand proud at the junction of State Highway One and State Highway 7. It will be a monument to the valley and will provide a destination where people can stop, relax and seek information about what the area had to offer. The sculpture’s journey from Iron Ridge to the site ends six years of planning by the Waipara Valley Promotion Association which has worked hard to meet all New Zealand Transport Authority’s requirements to allow it to be installed at the prominent site. Mr Herber is excited and says it will be great when the sculpture is ‘‘just down the road’’ after such a long time standing in his huge quarry studio waiting for the next stage of its development. ‘‘It’s certainly nice for it to be going to a new home. ‘‘It has been a real community effort with people and local contractors pitching in,’’ he says. The project had been done on a financial shoe­string with local vineyards putting in money and ‘‘I gave them a pretty friendly price. ‘‘It certainly wouldn’t be happening if people in the local area hadn’t supported the project.’’ Fulton Hogan was lending its muscle to the project in site preparation along with Firth which was supplying the concrete. Diggers were being brought in at no cost and North Canterbury Equipment was digging the trench for a power cable. Association chair Julian Ball says the artistic interpretation of a gravevine

will be installed and unveiled on November 27. ‘‘It is going to be huge. ‘‘People with local connections really understand the importance of the project,’’ he says. ‘‘It will be an icon associated with the Waipara area and is the biggest thing to happen in Waipara since Canterbury House (Waipara Springs),’’ he says.

❛ ‘‘It is going to be huge. It will be an icon associated with the Waipara area and is the biggest thing to happen in Waipara since Canterbury House (Waipara Springs).❜ — Waipara Valley Promotion Association chair Julian Ball. The sculpture was possible thanks to the generosity of Mr Herber and local contractors and the skills of engineer Hayden Kent, a director of K F Consilium, who did a lot of the design work to enable the association to install the sculpture on the site. ‘‘It has been six years in the making and it is finally becoming a reality. I am looking forward to putting the file into the back of a drawer,’’ says Mr Ball. The area will be landscaped, the sculpture uplit, and an information board will be added to point out the attractions to visit in the Waipara valley. ‘‘We are hoping to create a nice environment round the sculpture to encourage people to stop,’’ says Mr Herber. There will be an information board showing walkways, places to visit and stip and what there is to do in Waipara so people can ‘‘spread out from there’’.

❛‘‘We want more family time and it just seems the right time to let someone else take over.❜ The Hurunui Hotel has held a licence since July 1, 1860. The original owner, John Hastie, was granted a conditional licence for the ‘Hurunui Accommodation House’ with conditions that included keeping ‘‘eight beds in four bedrooms; shelter for six horses; provide stock yards for yoking up cattle; provide horses for travellers to ford the river; and also direct strangers to a safe fording place.’’ In 1982 a small group of local farmers banded together to save the hotel after it had fallen into disrepair. The community rallied and with help from other sources, including The Historic Places Trust, the Hotel was restored and eventually sold.



General Manager - Gary Anderson gary.anderson@thenewsnc.co.nz

An approaching 65th birthday, missing time with grandchildren and a desire to slow down, has been the catalyst behind the decision to sell the historic Hurunui Hotel, vineyard and events centre. Rodger and Nola Strong have spent the past 18 years developing the four hectare property, creating a thriving vineyard, building cottage accommodation and turning the historic stables into a cafe ´. Nola says they want to stay in the area and will keep the house they built on the hill above the property. ‘‘We feel the business needs new people. ‘‘I get my gold card this year and I’m not interested in working forever. ‘‘We want more family time and it just seems the right time to let someone else take over,’’ says Nola. The historic hotel has been refurbished over the past few months and will re­open today (October 8). Nola says the whole place can be sold freehold, or if someone wants to lease the businesses that is also an option. ‘‘We are flexible about what happens. ‘‘Which ever way it goes, we will stick around to help the new people get settled and be there for them.’’ Nola says it was a difficult decision for Rodger but now it has been made, he is looking forward to projects he will have more time for.

One of these is building gypsy wagons from scratch, fitted with power points so they can be hooked up as a sleep out or camp ground accommodation. While both will miss the interaction with people and love the hospitality industry, they are also looking forward to having some time for themselves after a hectic 18 years.

Cancellation Oxford Promotions Action Committee is disappointed its Spring into Oxford event last Sunday was cancelled because of safety concerns due to the predicted 160 kmph winds which threatened to market stalls, children’s entertainment such as the slippery slide and bouncy castle. Over 100 well turned out classic cars still turned up and some people managed to view these and it’s hoped the retail businesses in Main Street managed to capture some of the hundreds of people who still came to Oxford. The Oxford Community Men’s Shed stayed open during that time and the Artwork by Mark Adams and his students managed to get people in to view the stunning art work that was on display.

Special representation meeting The Oxford / Eyre ward looks set to get its own community board. Waimakariri Mayor David Ayers says a special council meeting has been called for Tuesday, October 20, to reconsider recommendations from the Representation Review panel, including a new community board for the Oxford / Eyre ward and one community board for the Kaiapoi / Woodend ward, instead of the previously proposed two. ‘‘We had a number of submissions from the Ohoka area asking to be part of the Kaiapoi ward, but we can’t change it because of the numbers

game. But we give them a community board with a say.’’ Ohoka, Mandeville and Swannanoa are set to remain as part of the Oxford / Eyre ward. The ward has been represented by a ward advisory board for the last two council terms. Mr Ayers says the review panel is proposing the Oxford / Eyre Community Board will have 50 percent representation from the Oxford area and 50% from Ohoka / Swannanoa area, including Mandeville North. The review panel also decided by three votes to two for the Kaiapoi / Woodend ward to have one community board, instead of having separate boards for Kaiapoi / Tuahiwi and

Woodend / Pegasus. ‘‘I was one of the two,’’ Mr Ayers says. ‘‘We didn’t get very much reaction about the representation of the ward from community, but that was on the proposal of having two community boards.’’ There were also some submissions regarding the inclusion of Cust in the Rangiora / Ashley ward ­ ‘‘more out of Oxford than Cust’’. ‘‘To change the boundaries now would mean changing all the boundaries.’’ Mr Ayers says it is not too late for residents to give feedback to councillors or to ask to be heard at the special council meeting.

Rangiora Rotary Book Fair popular By SHELLEY TOPP The prospect of 20,000 to 30,000 books, all priced at $3 or less, attracted good­sized crowds at the Rotary Book Fair last Friday and Saturday. The annual fundraiser was held at the Rangiora Borough School hall, in King Street. There was also a large range of magazines, puzzles and games, CDs, and DVDs for sale. One of the organisers, Rangiora Rotarian, Paddy Quinlan, said Friday had been busy, with book dealers arriving first at 7.30 am, before the fair opened. People donating books had again been extremely generous, he said. ‘‘We haven’t been short of books, and the quality has been good as well.’’ It was obvious from the crowds attending the fair that many people still loved to read books the old­fashioned way, despite the popularity of e­books read on small hand­ held electronic devices, such as Kindle.

The book fair is a community event that James Andersen, a teacher at Christchurch Boys’ High School, and his family, look forward to. The Andersen children, Emily, aged 12, Ella, aged 9 and Josh, aged 7, all attend Rangiora Borough School. ‘‘We do come here every year,’’ James said. ‘‘The money raised here all goes back into the community so it is for a good cause.’’ Lorraine Brydon, from Rangiora, is also a book­fair regular. She has been working at the fair as a volunteer for the last 30 years. Her friend, Joan Shearer, also from Rangiora, is a book­fair volunteer as well, having worked there for the last 5 years.

The extended BNZ corner on High Street could become a commercial site. Waimakariri Mayor David Ayers is hopeful land on the High and Ashley Streets intersection, which has become available as a result of the road realignment earlier this year, will eventually have a commercial building on it. ‘‘We will be treating it like the former Hansen’s Mall site in Kaiapoi ­ we won’t sell it unless we know what somebody’s going to do there.’’ For now the land remains designated as a road, so it will need a change in

designation before any development happens. No proposals have been put forward so far. Meanwhile, Mr Ayers says conversations are still ongoing with Kaiapoi developer Jedd Pearce, who has plans to develop the former Hansen’s Mall site, and he is hopeful of a positive outcome. ‘‘Those conversations are very much down the track. There’s a good understanding there, including the work required on the stop bank, which ECan (Environment Canterbury) is responsible for. ‘‘We also want a wider space for the footpath, because it is a popular spot for community events around the river.’’

Rail bid dives Plans to bring back passenger rail to North Canterbury have taken a dive. New Brighton resident Tane Apanui made a presentation to the Waimakariri District Council last month, pointing out that affordable trains could be purchased from Auckland Transport, which has electrified its entire rail fleet, suitable for running daily passenger services from Rangiora to Christchurch. However, Mr Apanui has since learned that Auckland Transport has sold its entire rolling stock to South Africa.

Wild weather . . . Dust flies as the strong nor’west gales tore through the Hawarden area PHOTO: HAWARDEN­WAIKARI RURAL FIRE FORCE. on Sunday.

Wind batters Nth Canty By ROBYN BRISTOW The nor’west wind that whipped through North Canterbury on Sunday, battering parts of the region into the wee small hours, ignited fires, flipped a campervan, created huge dust storms, felled and stripped branches from trees, forced the cancellation of a spring promotion in Oxford and cut power briefly to some areas. At Hanmer Springs several large trees were blown over on walking tracks. While volunteer fire fighters were run off their feet, the damage left in the wind’s trail was lessened by the brevity of the blow. As the gales whipped through the Hurunui district eight fires flared up ­ some of which were caused by lightning, power wires and flare ups. Principal Rural fire officer and emergency management officer Allan Grigg said there were three fires in the Amberley area, one at Motunau, one at Cheviot, one at Marble Point, one at Balcairn and one in the Medbury area. ‘‘Most were small and easily contained when we got there,’’ he said. However, the Medbury fire, which was close to the Balmoral Forest, took the Hawarden­Waikari Fire force and the Hawarden Brigade some time to fight as it got into willows which were dry due to the drought in the area. ‘‘It was an old burn that had been out for weeks. ‘‘But there were enough embers to blow into willows in the river,’’ said Mr Grigg. Meanwhile a campervan which was hit by a gust of wind blew into a water table near Mouse Point and tipped over after

the driver over­corrected to compensate for the wind. There were no injuries. Fires kept volunteers and rural fire fighters busy in the Waimakariri district, most being caused by old burns re­ igniting. Acting principal rural fire officer and emergency management officer Karen Worbel said four fires were significant. ‘‘We had five fires going at any one time all day Sunday. ‘‘By and large the big ones were burn offs that flared up again,’’ she said. And in spite of warnings of high winds, someone lit up on Saturday, which flared up in the wind on Sunday. A large fire at Petries Road, Woodend, was also a flare up from a burn off of debris and branches and took several hours to bring under control, while another flare up in the Oxford district at the corner of Woodstock and Mounseys Road, burnt up through the centre of old rotten trees. Ms Worbel said the property owner thought the fire was out, but hot embers were trapped underground and were re­ ignited in the wind. Huge piles of rubbish lit up in Roller Road, also in the Oxford district which took some time to control, before fire fighters headed off to North Loburn to bolster brigades and rural fire fighters put out a fire threatening to get into forest. Mr Grigg and Ms Worbel urge residents in both districts to listen to forecasts, be vigilant and ensure fires are properly extinguished by spreading them out and ensuring no embers were ‘‘cacooned’’ or trapped under a hard crust formed when water was poured on them.

The News

This year’s runner up Masterchef New Zealand, Leo Fernandez, only found out he had lost to Tim Read last week, along with the rest of New Zealand. Neither Leo or Tim Read, the eventual winner, knew who had won, as two different endings were filmed. All they knew was that it was close. After a long hard battle to get to the top two, Leo was ‘‘gutted’’ to find out he had lost by a mere two points. ‘‘It would have been better to lose by 10 points or more, but to be that close was terrible.’’ Back home in Waikari Leo says he didn’t even watch the final as he had a gut feeling it wouldn’t be good. ‘‘I switched off my phone and drove around Christchurch!’’ Despite his loss, the competition has opened up opportunities that otherwise may have been out of his reach. Out of all his friends and family, Leo says his parents were the most surprised he had entered a cooking competition. Coming from an extended family of good cooks, Leo learned how to cook to survive when he shifted to New Zealand from the Phillipines in 2008. He had never cooked for himself much but quickly became adept at creating dishes reminiscent of his home country. As well as survival, Leo says cooking traditional dishes eased the feeling of being homesick. Growing up, he was always the one to prep food ­ cutting, slicing and dicing ­ Leo was always ‘‘the kitchen hand, never the chef.’’ ‘‘I was lazy,’’ he says. ‘‘My mother, father, brothers, aunties and cousins were all good cooks and I just ate.’’ When he started work on a dairy farm in Culverden, there were only a few other Filipinos in the district and for his birthday the following year he cooked a

Over time, his interest in cooking grew and being proud of his heritage, he would share dishes with friends of other nationalities to teach them about his culture. ‘‘Food from the Philippines is a mix of Spanish, Mexican, Malay, Chinese and American. All these influences combine to make unique dishes.’’ Having watched Masterchef Australia and New Zealand previously, Leo decided once he had New Zealand residency he would apply for the next competition. On submitting his application where he described his food philosophy, dreams and reasons for wanting to compete, he was contacted by TV3 the next day. A Skype interview and a three day audition in Christchurch followed during which he cooked his pork hock signature

dish, putting him in the top 50. Unable to tell anyone except his understanding employers, Leo then made it to the top 24 and a Masterchef apron. After getting to the top 16, the contestants were sent home to prepare for what could be a week away or a couple of months away. Leo had supposedly ‘‘gone on holiday.’’ Being an outdoors person, Leo found it tough being confined to the house where contestants lived during the competition. ‘‘The contest wasn’t just about being a good cook, it was also a big mental challenge. You had to be mentally prepared for the isolation of being in the house and not being able to contact friends and family as well as the actual stress of the cooking contest itself.’’ Leo preferred the solace of his room to study cooking online, eating and sleeping, unlike the other contestants who studied recipes and practiced in the kitchen. ‘‘Sleeping was important, there was a lot going on and it was physically and mentally tiring.’’ He also found it challenging working as part of a team in a restaurant kitchen and doing technical tasks. Right from the beginning, he began to write down ideas for dishes so that in the event he made it through to the final two, he would have a good base for his recipe book. Already he is a bit of a celebrity and at last weekend’s Kaikoura Seafest complete strangers were coming up and congratulating him and saying he should have won. Leo says he dreams of opening a restaurant in New Zealand specialising in Filipino food, but would like to spend time working under a Michelin star chef to learn the trade better before making such a big decision. Until then, he will continue working as a stockman at Patoa Farms, near Hawarden, cook great food for friends and maybe publish his cook book.

Reporter on the move The News’ Rangiora-based reporter David Hill reflects on the past five y ears as he and his family finally move out of their quake-battered home to a rented property, while their new home is built. It is finally happening. After five years and four weeks, we moved out of our earthquake­damaged Parklands home last week so it can be demolished and rebuilt. We finally said goodbye to a sinking house, which practically split in two during that early morning rumble on September 4, 2010. I can remember that day like it was yesterday. I awoke to the sound of a runaway train and jumping out of bed, I called ‘earthquake’. I made for our then eight­year­old daughter’s bedroom down the hallway, with the walls shaking violently around us. My partner attempted to go into our then one­year­old son’s bedroom, but was thrown back into the hallway. In the harsh light of day the extent of the damage was clear. We now knew where an extension, added some 15 years earlier, began with large cracks in the walls of the hallway and bedrooms and the two floors slanting in opposite directions. Our front garden decided to part company with the front of the house, leaving a large crevasse, where the water flowed like a river when the council turned the water back on that evening. Digging a hole the next morning (Father’s Day!) we found two cracks in the water pipe. However, the council turned the water off again, and we drilled a hole in the kitchen floor and discovered a third crack in the pipe when the water was turned back on ­ we have had a hole under the kitchen table ever since. An Earthquake Commission assessment in April 2011 found the kitchen at one end had sunk about 45mm, while the other end of the house, the extension, had sunk more than 200mm ­ you literally walked up and down the hallway. In spite of this, our insurance company continued to suggest for two years the house might be repairable. Over the last five years we have got used to comments like ‘‘do you still live here?’’ ‘‘Sorry, I didn’t realise anyone actually lived in that house!’’ or ‘‘that hallway is like walking uphill’’. During the last year we have lived in the middle of a construction zone, as our

Amazing community fundraising opportunities for clubs and schools. Over the next few weeks the town will be busy gearing up for the local pro­am at the golf club, Race Day and Christchurch Show Weekend and the Bridge to Bridge Race. The Kaikoura Health Facility is now open with the long term patients having moved into their new rooms. In the coming weeks the old hospital will be demolished and Mainpower will be undergrounding the power supply around the Deal Street area. The Kaikoura Primary School have new classrooms and is renovating some of the older buildings for the Administration Block. The Historical Society and Library are gearing up for their shift to our new Combined Civic Centre.With the positive vibes that this new Hub will provide to the Westend, I’m sure the businesses, locals and visitors will benefit from the atmosphere this hub will create. Our amazing little community has a lot to be proud of and positive about as we continue to lead the way in sustainability, innovative and forward thinking.

By ACTING MAYOR JOHN DIVER At last year’s Pro­am golf tournament I teamed up with a Tauranga professional and during the round I asked him ‘‘what a professional player thinks of before and during a game’’. His advice was that golf is about ‘‘Positivity, Positivity, Positivity.’’ So with that in mind it’s time that the community starts thinking with a more positive mind set, as we live in one of the most beautiful places in the world. In my job as an electrician I come in contact with tourists who are amazed with our town and the local people that they meet. With daylight savings it signals the start of the barbecue season and different events coming to our town. We have already had large events being held in the town with the Kaikoura Hop and Seafest, Suburban School Half Marathon ­ three great events that bring a lot people to the town with many visitors pre­booking their accommodation a year in advance and these events offer great

Support for high school principal grows By SHELLEY TOPP Jennifer Goulding does not court publicity, but she has come forward to support suspended Rangiora High School principal Peggy Burrows. Mrs Goulding has been joined by Robert Thompson­Browne, and his daughter Trinity, a former pupil at the school, who have set up a Facebook page for Mrs Burrows, that has quickly gathered more than 800 supporters. Mr Thompson­Browne said the Facebook page was set up to ‘‘show community support’’ for Mrs Burrows, and to ‘‘demand an independent judicial review’’ into the case. Mrs Burrows, was suspended from her role as principal last July after she was alleged to have leaked confidential documents to Television One News. Her suspension came after the Ministry of Education (MOE) replaced the school’s newly community­elected Board of Trustees last February with a commissioner, Bev Moore. The MOE had earlier appointed Mrs Moore as a limited statutory manager at the school to solve tensions between the previous board of trustees and Mrs Burrows. A ministry spokeswoman Katrina Casey said Mrs Moore was appointed as commissioner at the school ‘‘because although the Board of Trustees had made progress we considered that the risks to the operation of the school were such that progress needed to be made rapidly in the interests of the stability and

Supporter . . .

It would also have been unreasonable to expect a Board of Trustees, particularly a board that included newly­elected members, to take on the amount of work required to address issues at the school, she said. The dismissed Board of Trustees had been community­ elected on November 1, 2014. Mrs Goulding, has lived in Rangiora for 30 years. Her children have all attended Rangiora High. She said the process where Mrs Burrows was suspended, and the enforced secrecy surrounding it, ‘‘feels like a witch­hunt to me’’.

Mrs Burrows had worked hard at the school, revitalising it, and inspiring pupils, Mrs Goulding said. She was concerned that Mrs Burrows had been treated unfairly, and left unable to defend herself against unsubstantiated allegations. ‘‘She can’t even go to the supermarket without people pointing and staring.’’ She believes Mrs Moore’s appointment as commissioner represents a conflict of interest. The MOE denies this. ‘‘Mrs Moore was not involved in the decision­making process that led to her appointment as commissioner, so no conflict of

interest arises,’’ they said. Mrs Goulding would like to see a judicial review of the case to examine all the processes involved. The secrecy surrounding the case had caused unfounded rumours in the community that were harmful to the school, and Mrs Burrows, she said, ‘‘because nothing is being resolved’’. Stephan Rattray, who is a member of the Board of Trustees replaced by Mrs Moore, is looking forward to the commissioner saying her job is done. ‘‘I would like to see a community­elected board back in place as soon as possible,’’ he said. ‘‘That would be the best outcome. The alternative is a judicial review.’’ The majority of the board supported Mrs Burrows. ‘‘I personally felt she was a legend.’’ ‘‘We were very committed, very excited actually, about taking the school forward,’’ he said. While the board understood big issues needed to be resolved, a positive, enthusiastic attitude existed among members, so their dismissal by the MOE came as a huge shock. ‘‘It was like being given a hospital pass and a high tackle all in one,’’ he said. Ministry spokeswoman Katrina Casey said the decision to replace the board with a commissioner was not a reflection on individual trustees, but an acknowledgement of the workload involved and the requirement of specific

expertise. ‘‘A number of the previous trustees were long­serving board members, and despite the wealth of experience in business and education settings they had been unable to resolve the issues that had occurred over the last few years and found they could no longer effectively govern.’’ Nick Steyn, house captain at Mansfield House at Rangiora High School, said Mrs Burrows was popular with students. The 17­year­old, year­13 student, who is studying calculus, chemistry, physics, biology, computer science, and Japanese, and has enrolled at Canterbury University to study financial engineering next year, said Mrs Burrows seemed to be able to inspire and motivate pupils. Many testimonials confirmed this on her Facebook page, he said. ‘‘It is obvious how genuine she is. I would say 95 percent, if not more, support her.’’ Pupils at the school had been left uninformed about why Mrs Burrows was no longer working at the school, he said. ‘‘Nobody has come to us and explained what is happening. ‘‘All we know at the moment is that Mrs Burrows is on sick leave and that the board has been replaced by a commissioner.’’ On the surface, the school’s daily administration had not seemed to have changed much, he said. However, the secrecy surrounding the case was damaging the school’s reputation. ‘‘It’s not in the school’s best interest,’’ he said.

Funding recipient . . . Riding enthusiasts from Cheviot Area School participating in the North Canterbury Riding for the Disabled programme which is to receive a funding boost. PHOTO: SUPPLIED.

Community funding Wellbeing North Canterbury and North Canterbury Riding for the Disabled will share the inaugural $10,000 MainPower Community Fund. The fund was introduced to inject funds into local groups including charitable organisations, cultural organisations and schools. Local residents were encouraged to visit the MainPower website and nominate the groups they believe should receive support. Wellbeing manager Deirdre Ryan says the $6500 it has been granted will help deliver valuable support services to the local community while North Canterbury Riding for the Disabled will use its allocation of $3500 toward relocating to a permanent riding facility adjacent to the Rangiora Showgrounds on Millton Avenue. Wellbeing North Canterbury is a charitable trust that provides support services to families and communities across the Waimakariri and Hurunui Districts. Their professional team, which includes 120 volunteers, empowers family and whanau to overcome difficulties such as family crisis, loneliness, stress and anxiety through a variety of services including counselling, community youth work, food bank, restorative justice and youth drug and alcohol support. Ms Ryan says Wellbeing is passionate about connecting with the community

and growing wellbeing within individuals, families and communities. ‘‘Like any charitable organisation we have a funding gap that we need to fill each year. ‘‘We are extremely grateful to receive $6500 in funding from the MainPower Community Fund North Canterbury Riding for the Disabled is a voluntary, not­for­profit organisation that provides opportunities for anyone with a disability to enjoy safe, healthy, stimulating, therapeutic horse riding and horse­related activities. Chairman Des Moore says its allocation of $3500 will make a significant difference to the organisation. ‘‘This is much needed money that we haven’t budgeted for so it tops up our funding just nicely,’’ he said. MainPower’s Chief Executive Bruce Emson said the success of the two organisations was due entirely to the support and good will they received from their local communities. MainPower was committed to supporting local communities and the community fund was a great opportunity to put the power in the hands of its customers. ‘‘We asked the people of North Canterbury and Kaikoura for help on which groups needed funding support the most and they responded to our call in the thousands,’’ he said.

Wait is nearly over The wait is nearly over for Rangiora retailers operating in temporary locations. High Street retailers are looking forward to moving into the new Conway Lane and Lambert buildings over the next few weeks, just in time for Christmas trading. Rangiora Take Note, Paper Plus and Toyworld business owner Andrew McBeath says he will be the largest tenant in the new Conway Lane building and he ‘‘can’t wait’’ to move his three stores into one new 550 square metre shop. He says the retail space is expected to be available by mid­October for a four week fit out. ‘‘So we hope to be up and running by around mid­November. But I’ve been told dates before. ‘‘It would be perfect if we could get in before Christmas and then we will be able to get more Christmas stock on the shelves.’’ Rangiora Paper Plus and Toyworld were forced out of their High Street buildings in March 2012, after they were deemed earthquake prone, and have been operating from temporary shops since June 2012 ­ Paper Plus in a temporary shop on Durham Street and Toyworld in a container shop on the Waimakariri District Council lawn.

Mr McBeath says he took over Paper Plus and Toyworld about a year ago. Another container shop tenant Debbie Albrecht says she hopes to move her clothing and accessories shop into the Conway Lane building over the next two weeks. ‘‘I’m very excited about it. I plan to close the shop for four days while I move over there and we should be open around October 20 or 21. It’s looking really, really good and I think they are working most days to get it completed. I can’t wait. My customers are saying ‘you can feel the town starting to get exciting’.’’ Ms Albrecht took over Jaks Clothing and Accessories last year and is rebranding her shop as So You! Boutique for the move. It was in the Pulley Building until it was closed in March 2012 due to being earthquake prone. After sharing premises with Essence magazine, the shop moved into a container shop on the council lawn. Ms Albrecht believes High Street will become a popular destination again, once the various building projects are completed and employment opportunities are already being created. She is taking on two new staff in anticipation of the move to larger premises which will have four fitting rooms, a styling area, toilet and kitchen.

Commemoration dance at Balcairn By AMANDA BOWES A ‘‘Farewell to the Soldier’’dance to be held at the Balcairn Hall on October 17, will pay tribute to the mass exodus of soldiers from Wellington on October 16, 1914. On that date, 10 gray painted troop­ships escorted by four warships were farewelled from Wellington Harbour by thousands of Wellingtonians. The ships carried the Main Body of and the First Reinforcements for the New Zealand Expeditionary Force ­ around 8000 men and 4000 horses. Britain declared war on Germany on August 4, and 11 weeks later, New Zealand men left for war. This was the most young men ever to leave New Zealand at one time. The gathering at Balcairn will follow the traditional farewell dance that was held for soldiers when they left their communities to fight overseas. Although it is being held to commemorate WW1 there will be some aspects from World War II incorporated into the evening. Based on research on how the farewell dances were conducted, a similar format will be followed. After the Welcome, everybody will sing God Save the King and a farewell tribute

Farewell . . . A scene from Wellington, October 16, 1914, as the Main Body of the New PHOTO: SUPPLIED.

Locals then provide entertainment with dancing, a supper, more dancing then Auld Lang Syne will be sung to finish. As a lead up to the evening, locals have been attending dance lessons held by professional dance teacher, Grant Killner. The Waltz, Foxtrot, Gypsy Tap, and Rock n Roll (which was a World War II dance)

have been learned and Mr Killner will be the MC for the dances on the night. In the tradition of farewell dances, no stiletto heels are to be worn and no BYO. The dance will start at 8pm and finish at midnight. The Farewell dance is supported by the Creative Community Arts Council. Tickets are $10 and available from Sally Macs in Amberley or by ringing 314 4849.

The push is on to protect birds from predators during the nesting season. Led by the BRaid and the Ashley­ Rakahuri Rivercare group, two hour workshops are planned for October 17 to school people in the art of trapping. BRaid and Rivercare chair Nick Ledgard says trapping is the most time consuming activity the groups carry out to protect birds from predators which recognise the signs and sounds of nesting, especially when the chicks hatch and call out as adults bring in food. ‘‘People are often asking questions about which traps are best and how they could be baited and set,’’ he says. The workshops will answer these questions to which the Conservation Department will provide tutors. Mr Ledgard said common garden predators such as rats and cats, are excellent climbers, but another great climber is the possum which is now known to to catch and eat roosting and nesting birds. But mustelids ­ stoats, weasels, and ferrets ­ are the most efficient of all bird predator while hedgehogs, which have a keen nose, are a major enemy of nesting birds and will readily take the less mobile chicks. Mr Ledgard says the aim of the workshop is to show people the basic

Trophy helps celebrate anniversary year By SHELLEY TOPP The Eyreton Pony Club had a night to celebrate last Sunday after their Eyreton Navy team won the coveted Springston Trophy for the second consecutive year. The club hosted the annual three­day horse­trial at their home­base at the Mandeville Sports Ground, during what is their 25th anniversary year. The trial comprised three tests ­ dressage, cross­country the next day, and showjumping over the three days. The showjumping on Sunday proved to be crucial to the final result with Eyreton Navy winning on 134.8 points, Halswell second on 136.1, Rangiora third on 139.9, View Hill Black fourth on 143.6, Springston fifth on 149.8, and View Hill White sixth on 150.5. It is the largest pony club event in the southern hemisphere, and was first held in 1972. Forty­one South Island pony­club teams and two from the North Island, competed

for the trophy last weekend, with about 230 riders in teams of six, comprising two seniors aged 18 to 24 years, two intermediates aged 15 to 17 years, and two juniors aged 14 years and under. ‘‘Some teams had only four riders made up of two of the categories, however they started with a 25­point penalty. Other teams were composites made up of riders from different branches and clubs.’’ After Friday’s dressage competition, results were close, with three North Canterbury teams in the top five places ­ View Hill White led on 117.5, View Hill Black on 120.4 was second, with one of the North Island teams Nga Tawa on 124.4 in third place, View Hill Red fourth on 127.1. The technical cross­country course proved trouble early on for many of the intermediate riders, and by the end of the day View Hill Black lead on 125.3, followed by View Hill White on 130.5, in second place, with Eyreton Navy moving into third place, on 130.8. Sunday’s competition finished early as a safety

Everest expedition Helen Wilton, the base camp manager for the 1996 Mount Everest expedition when Rob Hall died along with others on Everest, will be the guest speaker at a special screening of the movie on November 5 at the Rangiora Town Hall. The film focuses on the survival attempts of two expedition groups ­ one led by Scott Fischer ­ played by Jake Gyllenhaal and the other by Rob Hall played by Jason Clarke. Helen, who is played by Emily

Watson in the movie, placed the final call between Rob Hall and Jan Arnold in the final stages of the tragedy. She has recently returned from Venice and Los Angeles where she was an invited guest for the premier of the movie which has been produced with great attention to the accuracy of the vents of 1996. People wanting to secure a seat are encouraged to contact the Rangiora Rotary Club secretary on (03) 313 7162.

Eyreton Navy moved into top place during the show jumping to repeat its 2014 success but with new team members.

Kids contribute to exhibition Artwork to speed up revamp Children’s artwork has been included in a Kaiapoi exhibition. Art On The Quay’s latest exhibition has the unusual title of ‘‘Klimt Decomposed’’ and is the result of local Kaiapoi artists learning new painting styles and sharing the knowledge in local schools. Members of the Kaiapoi Creative Art Group, under the tuition of local artist Christine Watton, have worked for the past six months learning about composition. Using the famous works of Austrian artist Gustav Klimt, they have produced a colourfully vibrant display of paintings. At the opening, attended by an appreciative crowd, Ms Watton spoke about the group’s artistic engagement with the community and the activities they regularly participate in, including artist’s studio

tours, art tutorials, charitable causes and town beautification projects. Leading up to this exhibition the art group spent time working with students at Kaiapoi North and Borough Schools ‘‘The group have really enjoyed working with school students, sharing the knowledge they gained over the previous six months of workshops,’’ Ms Watton says. They helped the students to create their own Klimt style patterns and these have been included in the exhibition. The students enjoyed discovering pictures hidden within their own compositions and finally embellishing their work with gold leaf, a technique evident in many of the works exhibited, Ms Watton says. The exhibition runs until October 15 at Art On The Quay, in the Kaiapoi Civic Centre.

Students at Kaiapoi’s St Patrick’s Catholic School have produced artwork to help kick start fundraising to fund an upgrade of the school’s buildings. School secretary Angela Stuart says the school needs to raise $50,000 to help bring the buildings up to modern learning environment standards. ‘‘It would probably be at least 10 years away if we were to wait for funding to become available, but if we can raise it ourselves we can get started sooner. ‘‘We’ve got to offer the same things as state schools or you don’t attract the students.’’ As a state integrated school, St Patrick’s School does not receive state funding for buildings so relies on the

Mrs Stuart says the project was pioneered by teacher Rochelle Keats, who is ‘‘gifted with her art talents and has been giving the kids some great ideas’’. The students have produced 150 paintings, which are available for sale as framed pictures for $20 each. While parents had the first chance to buy their children’s art, Mrs Stuart is certain there will be some left over if other people were interested in buying any. Some of the best ones may also be given to the Kaiapoi RSA. ‘‘The kids have done really well. Just looking at what the kids have produced is incredible.’’

Fun of the fair at Southbrook Local swimmers win medals All the fun of the fair is returning to Southbrook later this month. The Southbrook School is hosting its two­ yearly school fair on Sunday, October 18, from 10.30am to 2.30pm. The school’s parent teacher association (PTA) has been planning the fair for the last 12 months and hopes this year’s fair will be ‘‘bigger, better and brighter than ever’’ to attract more people and raise more money. The PTA has lined up Harley Davidson motorcycle rides, pony and cart rides, bouncy castles and a bungy trampoline, along with entertainment including country and western music and hip hop and jazz dancers. Various craft and food stalls, a silent auction, raffles, mystery bottles, a white elephant sale and a book sale, along with car boot sales will also be on offer. Funds from this year’s fair will go towards furnishings and IT for the new school building, which is due to get under

North Canterbury Swim Club members gained valuable experience at the South Island short­course championships and a lot of confidence after returning home with plenty of medals. A team of 17 headed south to the Moana Pool in Dunedin for the competition with Campbell Kershaw, swimming in the 17 years and over class, bringing home the trophy for the fastest swimmer overall. He broke the South Island 100m individual medley record when he took gold and the 50m freestyle South Island record for 17­year­olds in winning silver. Wai­Swim head coach, Brigitte Mahan, said a number of swimmers stepped up to the level of competition to do extremely well. She said the racing was strong and a new format adopted allowed for the fastest eight, regardless of age, to go head­to­head in the final at night ‘‘which made for great racing’’. Meanwhile Oliver Rayner and Jordan Rahurahu have taken part in the Australian State Short Course in Canberra. Both posted good times while they were away representing New Zealand at this meet and enjoyed the experience. Two other members, Angus Syme and Oliver Rayner, took part in the South Island Region New Zealand swimming camp in Dunedin. The camp, headed by Gary Hurring, allowed swimmers and coaches the opportunity to work together with different swimmers and take the opportunity to share ideas. Results from the SI short­course championships were: 12­14years:

Three Oxford girls ­ Millie and Grace Brooker and Julie Briden ­ have helped Canterbury to top honours in the South Island Secondary School’s Girls rugby tournament. Canterbury pipped Southland, which had held the title since 2009, 17­14 in the final. One spectator says it is the best game of rugby she has ‘‘ever watched’’. ‘‘It was awesome,’’ she said. Canterbury, Tasman, Southland, Hanan Shield and Otago contested the tournament, with Canterbury drawing

with Southland, beating Otago and Tasman and losing to Hanan Shield in the round robin. All three Oxford girls ­ Millie, a Year 13 student at Christchurch Girls High School, Julie, a Year 12 student at St Margarets and Grace, a Year 11 student at Christchurch Girls ­ began their playing careers in Oxford before heading off for secondary schooling. Both Julie and Millie topped off a great tournament by being selected the South Island tournament team.

Public red zone views sought Waimakariri district residents are encouraged to have their say on the residential red zone recovery plan. Mayor David Ayers says the council is seeking feedback from residents ahead of a preliminary draft recovery plan being prepared before the end of the year. The preliminary draft recovery plan will include feedback from the Canvas red zone survey completed last year and technical reports which have been completed since then. A more formal

public consultation will be completed in the New Year, before the final draft recovery plan is completed in the middle of next year and presented to ‘‘the relevant minister’’. Mr Ayers says while the proposed Regenerate Christchurch, which is set to replace the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority in April, does not directly include the Waimakariri district, the legislation will impact on some parts of the district.

The Amuri district has a new ‘‘community connector’’ Kirsty Clark, who started work this week. She will be helping to address social isolation issues and help new residents and workers from outside the area to become more involved in their local community. The overall aim is to create a warm, welcoming community where people feel connected which will help employers to attract and retain staff and create a greater sense of wellbeing in the community as a whole. The role was identified by the local business community, with Enterprise North Canterbury (ENC) recruiting Kirsty, who is from Culverden, and will act as the employing agent for the duration of the contract. However, the role is funded by the Ministry of Social Development and the local business community in the Amuri district ­ the Amuri Dairying, Amuri Transport, Amuri Dairy Employers Group, Sharron and Alan Davie­Martin and North Canterbury Vets. ENC business development manager Miles Dalton says the role is an excellent example of how well business and the community can work together to come up with solutions to issues in the area and make Culverden an attractive place to live and work. Kirsty knows what it is like to be a newcomer to the area, having moved there three years ago with her family. ‘‘There are so many awesome things going on in Amuri but it’s not easy to find out about it if you’re new to the area and long term residents tend to forget that,’’ Kirsty says. ‘‘Having also worked in the dairy industry in the past, I understand the challenges of being involved in the community and working irregular hours. I am really looking forward to getting started and helping new arrivals to really get involved in the community and make the most of all the area has to offer,’’ she says. Local resident and farmer Sharron Davie­Martin hopes the role will bring

Focus on different forages ‘‘One forage species or cultivar does not fit all environments. This will be a good opportunity to get an understanding of some of the key attributes of the different species and cultivars that are available,’’ Dr Fraser says. Speakers include some of the top pasture agronomists covering a range of topics to help farmers develop a better understanding where the different forages fit into different farm systems. There will also be a great opportunity to ask ‘‘questions about pastures that have been concerning you for some time’’, Dr Fraser says. ‘‘Now is also the time when planning needs to be put in place to prepare for next year’s winter feed crops.’’ BLNZ has been funding work with fodder beet on sheep and beef farms over the past two years and the results from this work, including both yields and animal performance, will be presented. ‘‘The findings from this work may influence your decisions on what type of supplementary feed crop you sow for next winter.’’ The field day venue is 12km from Waiau, heading 6km up Inland Road then a further 6km along Sherwood Road. The field day will conclude with a barbecue.

Changes to mint lamb contest Sheep farmers are encouraged to enter the Canterbury Agricultural and Pastoral Show’s ‘‘new and improved’’ mint lamb competition. The nationwide competition, now in its ninth year, has been given an overhaul following feedback from entrants. The contest is open to all breeds and celebrates the quality and variety of lamb available in New Zealand with a focus on increasing consumption of the country’s largest export earners, competition convenor Greg Burgess says. Past winners of the competition have included Oxford farmer Hugh Taylor. Mr Burgess, who is also the New Zealand Sheepbreeders’ Association general manager, says that the new competition structure ensures a fair and transparent overall result. ‘‘The overall winner of the competition will now be decided on a points accumulation from the yield, tender testing and final taste testing stages of the competition, rather than relying on the taste test alone to determine the winner. ‘‘We have also included a new category for the highest yielding lamb and adjusted the schedule of classes. All of these changes better reflect the lamb industry’s requirements.’’ Lambs must be new season, born after July 1 this year. They will be judged on the hook at an Alliance plant for best overall yield.

The top four lambs in each of the three new classes (dual purpose dam and sire, dual purpose dam and terminal sire, and terminal dam and sire) will be selected as semi­finalists and sent to be tender tested at Lincoln University, before being taste tested at the Canterbury A&P Show on Wednesday, November 11, where the overall winner and highest yielding lamb will be announced. To receive an entry form or for more information on the competition, contact the show office on (03) 3432136 or email bindy@theshow.co.nz. Entries close on Wednesday, October 21.

Integrating different forages into sheep and beef farms will be discussed at a field day at Waiau next week. A Beef and Lamb New Zealand (BLNZ) field day will consider how to best fit the range of forages into a farm system. It will be held at Wardendale farm on Sherwood Road, Waiau, on Thursday, October 15, from 1.30pm. ‘‘The greatest asset on all pastoral farms is the forages that are grown. These forages can be perennial pastures through to annual winter feed crops,’’ facilitator Dr Tom Fraser says. ‘‘Sheep and beef farmers in North Canterbury farm on a variety of different land classes, high country to flats, irrigated and dryland, high to low fertility and with many different stock classes. ‘‘Many properties have all these different combinations within the one farm. Then there are the requirements for persistence or quality, these seldom go together.’’ Dr Fraser says the field day will explore options for integrating these different requirements into a farm system, as well as the economics of developing different land classes. There will be an opportunity to view animal performance on some of these new forages that have been established on Wardendale over the past three years.

Corriedales being tested South Island Corriedale hoggets are being put through their paces ahead of the Canterbury Agricultural and Pastoral Show in November. For more than 30 years, Corriedale breeders have held a ewe hogget competition in the lead up to the Canterbury show and last year introduced a ram hogget class. Southbridge farmer Gordon Gilbert says most of the hoggets come from North Canterbury. He has been hosting the ram hoggets on his property since January, while the ewe hoggets are being hosted by David and Rosie Clark, of Swannanoa, near Rangiora. ‘‘We started off with 35 (ram hoggets) and this number has since been reduced to 15,’’ Mr Gilbert says. ‘‘It is very commercial orientated. We judge the value of the meat and the wool on a level playing field. Sheep really need to be run off together in the same paddock to judge their true genetic merit and that’s working pretty well.’’ The ram and ewe hoggets are judged on growth rate, wool quality and value, and are judged as both woolly and shorn hoggets. They were weighed back in March and will be weighed again before the show to assess their weight gain. The ram hoggets have been CT scanned at Lincoln University to objectively assess carcass traits, while the ewe hoggets are scanned for eye muscle area. The ram hoggets will be judged at the Canterbury show, while the ewe hoggets are judged before the show. The sheep with the most points are chosen as the winners.

Body building confidence boost By ROBYN BRISTOW A journey of self­discovery has taken Marcie Webb from the depths of despair to a national and international body building competition. Marcie, whose weight gain led to withdrawal, loss of confidence and depression, is now preparing to represent the Hurunui district at the Auckland Nabba body building national competition and New Zealand at the 2015 Nabba international universe championships being hosted by Cebu City in the Philippines. A family photo shoot proved to be the catalyst for Marcie deciding the time had come to shed kilograms and get her life back on track. ‘‘I knew I had put on weight but I had not realised quite how much. ‘‘I began to withdraw from everyone and didn’t like to go out. I had stopped answering the door unless I had a full face of make­up and was dressed nicely. ‘‘I avoided speaking to people because I would get so nervous that my words would stumble out causing me to become even more self­conscious ­ it was a vicious cycle,’’ says Marcie. The weight gain came following the birth of her second son and when she found the only pants she could fit for her family photo sitting were her maternity pants she knew she had to do something. ‘‘After seeing the photos, I got upset, I hadn’t felt happy within myself for a long time not just with the physical aspects. I wasn’t healthy in the mind or body. Our very first family photo was a beautiful snap shot of all that I love, my husband and my boys, but it captured a me I didn’t even know I had become and that

Self­discovery . . . Body building has given Marcie Webb back her confidence and now she is competing in national and PHOTO: SUPPLIED international competitions. sparked me to make a conscious decision for change. Only I could fight for the me, only I could fight for the mum and the future role model I wanted to be for my boys. They became my main motivation for change. I want them to look back at what I achieved and be proud and inspired. Their mum got up on stage in front of hundreds of people (half naked!) and represented New Zealand,’’ says Marcie. She made a New Year’s resolution to enter a body building competition the following year and with the support of her husband the hard work began.

She had not been to the gym in four years, knew nothing about body building but found a gym, and started a programme under the watchful eye of personal trainer Craig Duthie and coach Robyn Crotty, with the aim of entering the Nabba Christchurch classic. By the time she took to the stage she had lost 14kgs, grown muscles in places she didn’t know she had muscles and had regained her self­confidence. Her goal was achieved but then she exceeded it by winning. She won the Ms Novice Shape in August, qualifying her for the Auckland nationals and the New Zealand team to travel to the Philippines. ‘‘We leave on November 13 and I am super excited to be a rural farmers wife from Culverden with two boys, who trains in her garage, representing New Zealand. It’s not something I ever thought possible three weeks ago. In fact I have to pinch myself, it was never the goal. The goal was just to gain enough confidence within myself to just get up on stage, do my poses and dance and say I did it! Bucket list ­ tick,’’ says Marcie. ‘‘I never expected to get as far as I have with this. I am not special. Anyone can do this, they just have to want it bad enough. Set a date and do it,’’ she says. Marcie is now fundraising for her trips away and is just discovering how expensive the sport is. But like her journey so far, she is determined to raise the funds needed and is already out and about hunting for sponsorship. A tan sponsor, Beauty & You in the Brackenfields shopping centre in Amberley, (03) 314 7692, Beautyandyou.co.nz, has already lent support to Marcie for her journey.
