Parking Rage Strict CBD rules driving us mad

By Kristy Martin Blenheim residents are up in arms about the strict parking enforcement occurring in the CBD, angry that fines are being issued for more than just expired meters. The Sun has received numerous complaints about “overzealous” parking wardens, who are not just issuing tickets for extended parking, but also for things like parking outside the lines, expired registrations and warrants of fitness. Continued page 3 Pictured is Greg Hall who says Blenheim's parking issues need to be addressed, and fast.

The DHB profiled

Judy Crowe: “We love you.”

There are seven elected board members on the Nelson Marlborough Health Board, with four now from Marlborough. The remaining three are from Nelson/Tasman: Judy Crowe, Pat Heaphy and chair Jenny Black. Minister of Health Tony Ryall selects the chair and deputy chair and can appoint up to four members to ensure there is a balance of background and knowledge. Two current ap-

pointees are iwi representatives. Standing Nelson board member Judy Crowe attended the meeting of Marlborough candidates in the Picton School hall on September 26. She asked why on ly Marlborough candidates were involved. “We are your friends over the hill,” she said. “We don’t have two heads. We love you. “You need Nelson and Nelson

needs you.” The two “big, chunky” areas of Nelson and Marlborough, separated by the hill, were a challenge. The concept had to be “One service, two sites,” she said, an idea repeated by several candidates. The February appointment of CEO Chris Fleming had proved “brilliant”, Judy said. “You are in good hands.”

Pleasing balance

Jessica: “Can’t wait!”

“I want to thank the voters for this second term,” says returning NMDHB member Gerald Hope. The four of seven members on the DHB was he says, “a very good outcome”. The two health professionals and two committed community members on the Marlborough list offer an “excellent balance, ” he says. In the previous term, he became chair of the community and disability support committee and he says that has given him a good insight into possible improvements. There had already been very

Jessica Bagge’s interest in involvement with the NMDHB began with the Save our Services group. She was one of four involved in setting it up, to ensure that Wairau Hospital continues to offer essential local services. From there, her awareness of the issues grew. Now she says: “My focus is on a whole approach to healthcare, working in partnerships so that we all share the same goal and vision.

good progress in the buying of stock, and in staff restructuring for improved efficiency he said, adding: “There will be more by Christmas, especially with the Wairau Hospital review.” “However, we know that Marlborough people want a stable, safe and viable service.” There was though, a challenge in attracting suitable surgeons and specialists to a provincial hospital. “Marlborough people have to be realistic. But from my point of view, services will be maintained.”

There for district Dr Brigid Forrest hopes she can offer both a medical and business perspective to the new DHB. She is delighted to be elected and says it is great to have four strong Marlborough members. “But we must remember that we are voted in a governance role. “ I hope that we can ensure that the entire district has as

good a health service as we can manage financially and geographically. “I know that I have a lot to learn and will be asking a lot of questions and hopefully getting good answers. “I cannot promise to give everything to everybody but I will listen, question and be prepared to look at alternatives.”

New Gifts instore now

“Healthcare is about prevention, about people knowing how to look after themselves and their children, not stressing, eating good foods, trying alternatives that suit their lifestyle . She understands that the “newbies” will discuss committee choices next month. “That’s when I’ll have a better understanding of where they will use my skills and the learning I’ll need to do. “Can’t wait!”

More patient focus Jenny Black (Marlborough) the founding manager of Hospice Marlborough, says she would like to see a more patient focused health service, with better integration between community and hospital-based health services, so people can get timely care as close to their home as possible. One way to do this was with rapid response teams for pa-

tients in their own homes 24/7. “Hospice offers a similar model. And there needs to be more streamlining of services so that everyone involved with a patient can share the same information.” Electronic referrals and electronic patient records which are being introduced will help she said.

Strict CBD rules driving us mad inbriefThe Sun

Continued from page 1 Business people are also concerned that the strict policing of meters is driving their customers away. CBD worker Greg Hall says he regularly sees tickets going to cars parked with empty spaces around them. He accused the council of revenue raising and said it was enough to drive traffic out of town. “Why ticket someone when there are three or four empty parks beside their car and they are not preventing anyone else from parking?” said Mr Hall, who works at Cash is King streetwear on Main Street. “This is happening all the time

and shouldn’t be. “We as ratepayers are sick of this tax and it will kill our town if a change is not made.” One local woman told the Sun she regularly sees parking wardens patrolling Blenheim streets just outside the CBD, where parking is free. But a sp oke swom a n for Marlborough District Council defended this, saying the wardens (contractors from ADT Armourguard) were within their rights to conduct registration and warrant checks. “Parking wardens, employed by a company with the contract to manage parking for the Marlborough District Council,

patrol the CBD in Blenheim and Picton in order to keep traffic turning over in the parking spaces,” she said. “The wardens also have authority to issue tickets for vehicles with no current warrant of fitness or where motor vehicle registration has expired. “A period of grace of 28 days is usually given.” A Scott Street business owner, who didn’t want to be named, said the wardens could definitely be overzealous. “This is to the detriment of retailers because customers will run from the store frightened of receiving a fine when they might be in the middle of buying

something.” He said it was a more user friendly system when people paid for their parking after the fact, like at the multi-storey Alfred Street building. According to council figures, the number of tickets issued in Marlborough is about 3000 less than it was in 2010. Last year, almost 15,000 tickets were issued, compared to 18,000 in 2010. Council says Marlborough Roads wrote off about 1500 tickets last year, at a cost of almost $60,000, after receiving credible explanations through letters, emails and phone calls.

No parking ticket incentives scheme The Sun was told of a rumour circulating that parking wardens worked on an incentives scheme and were rewarded for the highest number of tickets issued. It was said that one worker had been awarded a trip to Fiji for his efforts. So we put the question to council. Here is the response from Frank Porter, highway manager at Marlborough Roads. “The parking wardens employed by ADT Armourguard Ltd who patrol the streets of Blenheim and Picton do not work to a quota and there is no incentive to maximise ticket numbers. “The role of wardens is to

ensure a regular turnover of vehicles in parking spaces which is in the interests both of the town’s retailers and of other shoppers

looking for car parking. “The ideal situation would be a level of compliance from vehicle owners which meant no tickets needed to be issued at all but unfortunately that is not the case and regular patrols are required to maintain turnover. “The parking contract with Armourguard is entirely based on hourly rates paid to wardens, with no expectation of any ticket numbers issued. “ADT Armourguard Ltd gave a corporate excellence award to a member of its Marlborough parking staff to recognise an employee for good service, as part of its national awards programme. “The company gave the award

to recognise and reward an employee who came to the aid of an elderly lady who tripped and fell in Kinross Street, hurting herself quite badly. “The parking warden applied first aid, called an ambulance and stayed with the woman until it arrived. “The incident occurred well over 12 months ago. “The award included travel to Fiji for the staff member concerned. “The award was an internal company management matter and it is unfortunate that people should circulate ill-informed comment about a matter of good public service.”

A $2 million meth haul has been seized by police and customs in Wellington after being found in LED lighting panels. Just over two kilograms of methamphetamine, $20,000 and vehicles were seized and five people arrested as part of the a joint operation between Police and Customs.

Motorcyclist injured At 7.30pm on Wednesday, police attended a motor vehicle accident at the intersection of Scott St and Wither Rd. Police said it appeared a car had tried to complete a turn in front of an oncoming motor cycle. The rider took evasive action and clipped the vehicle, causing him to fall off. He was taken to Wairau Hospital with a suspected broken wrist. The cause of the accident is being investigated.

Workplace safety on the agenda By Kristy Martin It might seem funny that they share the same name and occupation, but the role these two women do in the community is quite serious. Occupational therapists Lisa McAulay and Lisa Preece are involved in the prevention and management of workplace injuries. They conduct workplace assessments, do health and safety auditing and enforce injury prevention techniques. After almost four years servicing Marlborough, their company, WorkRehab, recently established an office in Blenheim. This was because the team has expanded, explained Ms McAulay. Work Rehab is contracted to the Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) but the team also conducts private work. Lisa and Lisa enjoy the variety of the job, which sees them out visiting factories, wineries and farms, as well as office buildings. They teach people how to perform safe lifting and carrying, which can lead to injury when it is done incorrectly. When conducting a workplace assessment in an office, they assess employees’ computer workstations, examine the height of their chair, their posture and any other factors which will help prevent injury.

Occupational therapists Lisa McAulay and Lisa Preece have recently opened a Work Rehab office in the Marlborough Lines Stadium 2000 building.

They are also able to recommend equipment and redesign a work space to suit a person’s ergonomics. But there are no blanket recommendations as such, as every person is unique when it comes to the demands of their job and their body type, said Ms Preece.

WorkRehab also offers “train the trainer” sessions, which can allow one or more employees to pass on the advice they have received to colleagues. For more information, visit workrehab.

Failure to be celebrated Marlborough’s Young Chamber (of Commerce) is to feature guest speaker Dave ten Have on “Why unsuccessful entrepreneurs give the best advice”. Those under 40 working in business, either on their own or as an employee, can join other Young Chamber members for the evening at Ritual Café in Maxwell Road on Wednesday October 23. David is the CEO of The

Dave ten Have.

Thingamajig Laboratory (“Jig Lab” for short) a Wellington research and development consultancy which offers creative software development expertise. As former co-founder and CEO of Ponoko, David raised millions of dollars to take a brand-new product from prelaunch to international success. His expertise with start-ups, his entrepreneurial approach

to business, and his technical expertise, combined with his ability to communicate with “geeks and real people alike” promise a lively presentation. There will be a wait list for this event, to be held between 5.30-7pm, so those intending to go are asked to RSVP to Nicolene at enquiries@mcoc. as soon as possible.

Two trophies for Hunter’s Wines Hunter’s Marlborough 2012 vintage Riesling has taken two prestigious trophies at the annual Canberra International Riesling Challenge. The Jim Murphy AM Perpetual Trophy for Best Dry Riesling and the New Zealand High Commission Perpetual Trophy for Best Riesling from New Zealand were awarded at the awards dinner last Friday. This follows on from success at the Canberra International Riesling Challenge in 2010 and 2011, where the Hunter’s 2009 vintage Riesling took out the Best Riesling from New Zealand both years. Seven judges and three associate judges tasted 487 wines over the three day judging period to find the best wines across a number of categories. Chairman of the Riesling Challenge,

Jane Hunter, managing director of Hunter’s Wines.

Ken Helm, said this event has been the most successful of the 13 years due to the enormous support from the eight major Riesling producing countries. It was very pleasing to see the entrants showing their highest quality wines, he said.

Jane Hunter, managing director of Hunter’s Wines, says the Riesling Challenge was a great opportunity to see where our Riesling sits within the world with the best Riesling producing countries participating and judges focusing specifically on the one varietal. Hunter’s have a loyal following for their Riesling both in New Zealand and export markets around the world, with the Riesling grapes sourced from the well-known Wairau Valley to create the off-dry style Hunter’s is famous for. Ken Helm Chairman of the CIRC said “the Hunter 2012 Riesling is a style the judges loved and awarded it two trophies, and I believe the consumer also loves. “Unlike many slightly sweet New Zealand Rieslings, it shows how great a dry style can be”.

‘Handmade’ market showcases local talent By Kristy Martin People searching for quality handmade goods crafted by locals can head along to the Marlborough Craft Collective’s ‘Handmade’ market tomorrow. The market, to be held in the St Christopher’s Hall at Redwoodtown, will feature 18 stalls selling art, jewellery, flax flowers, bags, crocheted and knitted goods, plus children’s toys and clothing. Organiser Amy Maxwell said it was about showcasing the work of Marlborough’s thriving craft community (there are over 90 members in the collective), but also encouraging people to buy local. “The rules were that all items had to be handmade and they had to be made by the person selling them,” Amy explained. “We wanted to keep it local and we didn’t want to have people selling imported goods. “People sometimes assume handmade means cheap, but it doesn’t. “A lot of effort goes into creating these products.”

The event will also give people a chance to get their Christmas shopping done early, she said. The market will run from 10am2pm with a voluntary gold coin donation going to the St Christopher’s outreach program. The Marlborough Craft Collective was established earlier this year for crafty people to inspire and support each other in various projects. It has taken Amy and her fellow coordinators Sara Jean and Deanna Schroder four months to organise the Handmade market, and if it proves a success they hope to host more.

Amy Maxwell from the Marlborough Craft Collective examines some of the items collected for tomorrow’s ‘Handmade’ market at Redwoodtown.

An engineer with a passion By Belinda Jackson Originally from North Derbyshire in the UK, Eric Nash came to New Zealand with his wife in 1999, following his daughter who had met and married a Kiwi. Having owned a small farm in Cornwall, Eric and his wife were not afraid of a bit of hard work and spent six months working for their lodgings on various farms as far north as Hokianga and as far south as Gore. An engineer by trade, Eric brought his lathe with him to New Zealand so he could continue to make parts for his beloved 1936 Matchless motorbike that had also travelled with him. It wasn’t long before he was making parts for his new friends’ bikes as well! Velocette motorcycles were made by Veloce Ltd, from Birmingham, England - a small, family-owned firm selling far fewer hand-built motorcycles than the big players like BSA, Norton or Triumph. Renowned for quality, the company always did well in international motorcycle racing from the mid-1920s through the 1950s, including winning two World Championship titles with the 350cc in 1949 and 1950. Veloce, while small, was a great technical innovator and many of its patented designs can still be seen on motorcycles today, including the positive-stop foot shift and swinging arm rear suspension with hydraulic dampers. After a while, Eric’s mind wandered back to a Tiger Cub he had in the UK which he thought would be brilliant for New Zealand’s gravel roads. He says he never really liked the two cylinder, vertical twin Triumphs, “They went fast but not for long ‘cos bits always fell off,” he explains. “But when I went selfemployed in the UK I did a bit of wheeling and dealing in bikes, ended up buying a Tiger Cub and loved it.” So when he saw one for sale in Christchurch in 2004 – well, not so much the bike but a whole lot of parts – he bought and reassembled it while carrying out various modifications. Eric loved taking the Tiger up Mount Patriarch. “It was magic up there. You get almost to the top and you can look down on Lake Chalice and from the top you could see

everything – right over the Cook Strait to the North Island.” In 2001 while riding the Matchless on a club run in Wellington, Eric asked another rider if he knew of any Velocettes for sale. By sheer coincidence, this chap had one and he brought it round to show Eric later that day. It was even another 1954, the same model as Eric had had in the UK. “I fell in love with a

Velocette when I was doing National Service back home – I loved riding it, but had to sell it when I got married.” Finding this one was obviously meant to be. “It was the noisiest bike I’d ever heard but I didn’t give a damn – I was having it!” In 2008, Eric had to stop riding his bikes due to poor health. The Tiger Cub was on display at Brayshaw Park for a while but can

now be seen at Omaka Classic Cars. It only arrived there a couple of weeks ago so is the latest addition to the collection. Eric is still working on bikes, currently rebuilding the engine for a 1933 Velocette for a friend. And when he’s not doing that, you can find him flying model aircraft, “But only after I’ve done some tweaking and made them go faster!”

‘Logger’s Dream’ features at forestry event Story by Celeste Lodewyk For many years man and machines have worked side by side to cultivate, farm and harvest our natural resources, particularly forestry,providing means for building and creating wood products. This history will be celebrated during the Pigeon Valley Steam Museum Annual Logging Weekend on November 2 and 3. It is being hosted by Higgins Heritage Park in Wakefield, Nelson and will feature a number of logging competitions and demonstrations. The King of the Forrest Logger Sports is a huge attraction and will see teams converge from the Top of the South, including Marlborough, to contest the title. This is a popular event which draws large crowds, including families with a range of forestry related activities and attractions for children. The biggest draw card of the event will be a 1950’s hauler, called the ‘Logger’s Dream’, a pioneering piece of machinery which made way for other industry leading equipment. This particular machine was gifted to the museum by Wairau Valley man Clint Glennie. It is understood that only six came into New Zealand and this machine was used at the Woodsmen’s School at Golden Downs which was run by the New Zealand Forest

Service, said Pigeon Valley Steam Museum secretary Allan Palmer. “It then moved to the Wairau Valley with Clint before he donated to the museum. He was keen to have it restored and is happy with the home it has with us,” he said. The Loggers Dream is mounted on an old GMC army truck and was considered a big step forward in the logging industry, before being superseded by bigger and better machines. Pelorus forestry contractor Mike Edridge, member of the Historic Transport Museum Trust, is currently working on the Loggers Dream and will be transporting it to the museum ahead of the logging weekend. In addition to the bounty of history on show throughout the weekend, there will also be steam winch operating skyline hauler demonstrations as well as plenty of other forest related activities of “days gone by”. “We have horses hauling logs, tractors, traction engines and the public can have a go at cross cut sawing and even operate a small digger. For the children there will be activities and a treasure hunt,” Allan said. The event will be held at Higgins Park, 2km along Pigeon Valley Road from Wakefield. Entry costs are $5 for adults and children go free. For more information or for tour groups, contact Allan on 027 319 7427.

Awatere Playcentre is thanking the community for its support in the Tui School Garden Challenge. Photos supplied.

Get voting in school garden comp By Kristy Martin Staff and children at Awatere Playcentre are excited to be sitting second in the People’s Choice Award of the Tui School Garden Challenge, with one just one week left until voting closes on October 25. They now are calling on the Marlborough community to get voting and help them take out first prize. “Tui Garden Challenge has been an awe-

some project for the children and families to work on these past 11 weeks, learning about growing plants from seeds to harvesting,” said playcentre secretary Mel Ewart. “Children have weeded, watered and tended the garden with great care noticing the changes and it has kept our families busy and occupied following the big earthquakes. “We have been lucky to receive donations

of seedlings from Selmes Road Nursery and a nursery in Ashburton and a compost bin from Goldpine, Blenheim after our plastic one kept collapsing in the wind!” Tui School Garden Challenge aims to find the best school garden in New Zealand. Voters can vote for as many of the participants as they wish and this year there are 10 Marlborough schools involved. To vote, head to

Need a runner? Marlborough teams who need an extra runner for the Molesworth Run are in luck. A post on the Marlborough Harrier Club’s Facebook page by Nicola Hadley states that she is searching for a team for her husband, Alex, to join after his three other members backed out of the 84km off-road run, to be held in Canterbury on November 16. Alex has been training for leg one of the four person event for the past 12 weeks.

The Inter-Winery Challenge trophy for champion rowers went to Giesen Wines. Photos supplied.

Giesen takes trophy at Inter-Winery Rowing Regatta By Kristy Martin It was a sweet victory for Giesen Wines who took home the bragging rights as well as the trophy at the annual Inter-Winery Rowing Regatta in Blenheim last Saturday. The weather turned it on for the teams from Indevin, Delegats, Saint Clair, Wairau River Wines and Giesen as they set out racing on the Lower Wairau River on

Saturday morning. The Inter-Winery Rowing Regatta, now in its fifth year, sees fierce rivalry develop between competing wineries, who each complete about six weeks training in the lead-up to the regatta. The races were 500m long and some teams had up to four races on the day, depending on how they placed.

Giesen’s determination to secure victory over Indevin, whose erg machine skills scored them the trophy in the indoor rowing leg, paid off. Indevin placed second in Saturday’s regatta. Saint Clair and Wairau River turned out strong performances as first time competitors. Organiser Richelle Collier from

the Blenheim Rowing Club said she barely slept the night before, worrying about the weather, but “it was perfect and the water was like glass,” she said. She hopes all five teams will return to the competition next year, and that other wineries would also get involved.

Sports awards The Marlborough Sports Awards  will be held on November 18. The quest speaker is to be Sir Graham Henry and the MC is John MacBeth. There will now be five awards, in the categories of Sportsman of the Year, Sportswoman of the Year, Young Sportsman of the Year, Young Sportswoman of the Year, Sports Team of the Year and the Lifetime Contribution to Sport in Marlborough Award.

Cricketers in first round The Marlborough senior representative cricket team is playing Taranaki today in round one of the annual Chapple Cup Central Districts 50-over tournament in Napier. The winner goes through to the Chapple Cup semifinals and the loser goes down to the Cave Cup playoffs. Depending on whether they win or lose today, Marlborough will face either Manawatu or Wanganui.

Open day at Renwick Taekwondo Club By Kristy Martin The Renwick Taekwondo Club is holding an open day next Wednesday at the Renwick Community Hall. Head instructor Colin O’Brien said members of the public were invited to head along to see what the club, and the martial art, is all about. It was also aimed at attracting some new members, he said. “We’ve got 23 members now and their ages range from five years old to late 40s,” Mr O’Brien said. Taekwondo is an Olympic sport and with it brings opportunities to travel the world participating in high levels of competition, Mr O’Brien said. Just last year, his own son, Braedon,

travelled to Egypt and Australia to compete in the Junior World Championships and the Oceania Championships. “If competition isn’t your thing, taekwondo is also good for self confidence, self discipline, fitness and flexibility.” The club was formed back in 2000 and has been going strong ever since. The members train on Monday and Wednesday nights. The open day will be held from 5pm7.30pm next Wednesday, October 23.

Police inbrief

Bike, rods stolen from garage

Motorbikes targeted in safety campaign Police in Marlborough and Nelson have launched a road policing campaign aimed at saving the lives of some of our most vulnerable road users - motorcyclists. They will be checking motorbikes for registrations, roadworthiness and breath testing riders as part of the targeted operation. Tasman District Road Policing Manager Inspector Jenni Richardson said the campaign was timed to coincide with the warmer weather and onset of daylight saving. “At this time of year all of those people who parked their motorbike up for winter are starting to think about getting out on the road again over the summer months. “We want to strongly encourage them to consider taking a rider training course first.” Inspector Richardson said the courses weren’t aimed at just

beginner riders, but contained a lot of useful information for seasoned bike riders. On average there are 90 crashes each year involving motorcyclists in Tasman District, which covers Nelson Bays, Marlborough and the West Coast. “The social cost of those crashes, which includes hospitalisation and other medical treatment, along with time lost from work is estimated by ACC and NZTA at $44.25 million,” Inspector Richardson said. Police data shows crashes tend to increase in number from November, peaking in February and March. “During the three months from the beginning of January to the end of March we record as many crashes as there are in the six months from May to October. That’s simply a reflection of the

number of people with bikes out on the road over the summer.” Inspector Richardson said the majority of crashes involving motorcycles were the result of rider error by losing control on a bend. She said about one third of riders involved in crashes did not have a full licence. As well as promoting rider training, Police will be checking motorcycles for roadworthiness and riders will be breath tested. The campaign will run until the end of May 2014. “My hope is that over that time we will see an increase in the number of riders attending a training course and a corresponding reduction in crashes involving motorcyclists,” Inspector Richardson said.
