The Waimakariri District Council is one of the largest employers in the Waimakariri District and has become an employer of choice.
Introducing one of Waimakariri’s newest Kiwis: Daniel
Carter. And no, he didn’t grow up on the other side of the river in
Southbridge, play a bit of rugby, and live up the high life in France!
This one hails from Buckinghamshire in the United Kingdom.
And he is now a New Zealand citizen after taking the oath of
allegiance to New Zealand alongside 32 other new citizens in this month’s
The United Kingdom, South Africa, the United States, the Netherlands,
India, Colombia, Austria and Canada were all represented at the ceremony, nine
of which will be held this year in the council chambers.
Mr Carter has lived in New Zealand since 1994, and said
gaining citizenship had been the last thing left to do, having long since felt
like a Kiwi.
His very proud mother and grandmother were on hand to watch
him as he joined Waimakariri Mayor David Ayers (pictured) to take the oath.
Asked whether sharing the name of a famous rugby player in
New Zealand was advantageous or a disadvantage, Mr Carter, who lives in
Rangiora, said it had been a little bit of both.
Mind you, he might have had the ‘other’ Dan Carter blushing
when quizzed as to who his favourite rugby player was: “Richie McCaw” came back
He didn’t even have to think about it!
Congratulations to Daniel and all of the other new citizens
who are now officially New Zealanders after the recent ceremony.
It is great to have you with us.
