    that plans to bottle water or whether they oppose this Bung the Bore Ashburton is the front of the opposition mayor Angus McKay is in the other corner and in between is a battlefield of words that currently are being flung from the Bung the Bore corner via social media This organisation is also pushing for its own mayoral candidate and is tipping councillor Donna Favel to be that person Some of the accusations being levelled against Mr McKay are personal but he is remaining stoic under attack It was part of a democratic society that people could have their say through the media he said They are free to express their opinions that s their democratic right While he is not actively following the Facebook debate Mr McKay said he was aware of the comments that were being made I just hope people have a good discussion based on the scientific facts of the matter He did not want to venture an opinion on whether or not he believed some of the comments being made could be considered defamatory This is the life I have chosen to live I hope I ll be judged on what I ve done over the past six years and what I intend to do in the future he said I ll carry on serving the people of Ashburton all of the people and I ll be offering myself again as a candidate to all of the people of Ashburton he said One of his councillors might have been tagged by the action group as their possible mayoral candidate but at this point it was too early to talk campaigns Mr McKay said He won t be doing that until all nominations are in I just have to go on business as usual I

  • Uniforms too expensive
    avoid the financial horrors as children throughout the district prepare for school in the coming weeks Pre Christmas shopping and second hand uniforms are part of the penny wise plans local parents have been putting in place to ensure the costly time of year does not come to a head Uniforms are often ear marked as the back breaker for parents in a time when stationery and school camps loom on the term one calendar Uniform shops in Ashburton have seen steady business since the New Year but places like Postie Plus Ashburton saw sales peak before Christmas as parents looked to put the stresses of school uniforms behind them I suppose it is a very expensive time of year for parents and many of them would be buying while they had a bit of money before Christmas Postie Plus manager Shelley Heney said Head to toe Ms Heney said primary school uniforms could cost up to 150 per child while secondary school aged pupils could have uniforms in excess of 1000 Salvation Army Community Food Bank manager Judith Lilley said there had not been anyone seeking financial assistance for uniforms as of yet but she was confident low income families would seek the service in the coming weeks The charity s family store manager Maria Macdonald said up to 12 families could visit the second hand shop each day all looking to purchase second hand uniforms With school uniforms often falling outside the budget for many families Ms Macdonald said they often found bits and pieces of uniforms which she believed had another year s wear I would think a lot of people come to us because it is just so expensive on top of other fees Ms Macdonald said It s an awfully expensive time and I would

  • New lift for Mt Hutt skifield
    The new Sunkid will be a beginners conveyor lift similar to the skifield s 100 metre long covered Magic Carpet It will instead be uncovered and about 50 metres long and will run on steeper terrain from the area of the Triple Chair s mid station to the top of the Magic Carpet Ski area manager James McKenzie said the 70 000 project represented the first new lift installation for the skifield since the Summit Six in 2006 He announced the new development last night at an evening to celebrate Methven Hot Pools resource consent application The success of the skifield s earlybird season pass campaign had enabled the project planned for the future to be moved forward for this season and it would be just in time for 2016 We see this as a real coup to get this at this late stage Mr McKenzie said As well as creation of the new lift and learner slope there would be additional car parking Modifications would be undertaken for upper mountain parking space while the carparking area around the information booth would be extended enabling space for 250 vehicles altogether In light of the extra skiers Mt Hutt was expecting to attract this year the ski area was looking to work with Methven Travel to introduce a new shuttle service from the information booth It would also be encouraging people in sole occupant cars to take passengers from the information booth on busy days in order to ease congestion on upper skifield carparks I would much rather encourage people to share a space in their vehicle rather than say to a family that s driven all the way here that there is no space for you Mr McKenzie said The improvements were part of 2 million invested in the ski
