Family sells after 40 years When the doors of the Springlands Freshchoice supermarket closed for the last time on Sunday September 26 at 6pm, nearly forty years of Derry family history ended. It also marked the start of some hard work as second generation owner/manager John Derry and his team started an all-night stocktake. They were preparing things for the new owners, Countdown, to take possession and do their refit and rebranding. Countdown opens at 10am today, Wednesday. Thirty-eight-year old John said his father Blue and mother Marie had started the business when he was a small baby. Marie was still working in the office until the last day. Sister Joanne was there too, as was her husband Chris, who will continue to run the produce department for Countdown. More PG 3.

Cars wanted for derby By Celeste Lodewyk With only weeks remaining before the official opening of the Eastern States Speedway racing season on October 23, demolition derby drivers are beginning to prepare for battle. But for some people the car crunching madness may be missed if they do not find a car in time. Eastern States Speedway drivers Shaloe Lammas, Bronwyn Kitto, Ricco Gray and Glen Stevens are amongst many drivers still seeking cars for the derby.

“The cars just need to run and not break down,� Ricco says. “They don’t need anything else as they are stripped down.

Ping Pong for a cause to Bolivia The $1000 scholarship Marlborough Girls’ College schoolgirl Rhiannon Halfacre, right, has won to spend a year in Bolivia has brought some additional challenges. Not least is the fact she needs to fundraise another $10,000 to pay for her airfares and expenses during her twelve months away. She will be hosted by an as yet unknown Bolivian family as she attends school in La Pasa, or some equally politically stable area of the country. Rhiannon read about the exchange opportunity through the school notices. They sought a candidate with a want for life and learning, someone who was “slightly linguistic� (she learns Japanese) and someone who had enthusiasm. The 500-word essay she wrote won her the opportunity and she has decided that, as well as the regular school lessons she

will attend, she wants to study Bolivian folk music. A member of the MGC’s La Chorodia choir which sings for fun, the Year 11 student was, in September, a shared winner of the annual trophy for her contribution to that group. She has already done some fund-raising and some of those profits will be used to fund a fund-raiser just after the Teddy Bears picnic on November 1. Between 1.15-1.30pm, the Great Orange Ping Pong Float-along Race will be held. She wants to sell 700 luminous and numbered ping pong balls for $2 each. They will be tipped into the Taylor River at the High Street Bridge. Should your ping pong ball be the first to be picked up by the Scouts in kayaks at the Beaver Road bridge, you will be the winner of a $100 first prize.

People’s market all go A&P takes over the Community Market The chairperson of the Marlborough A & P Society Sam Rutherford says the community market will open for the summer season at the showgrounds on Sunday morning October 3. It will be known as the A & P People’s Market. “A & P will be running this market now,� Mr Rutherford said. They had decided to go ahead after looking at the lease document that the Marlborough District Council has signed with the Farmers’ Market which already operates there on Sunday mornings. “We saw where the line was drawn. It gave us more access than we thought.� The A&P People’s Market will be held in the sheep pavilion alongside the Farmer’s Market. A & P had always controlled the buildings which housed stock, including the stables and the sheep pavilion where they plan to hold the market, but they thought the council had control of the land giving access to them. They discovered, he said, they could gain access to the buildings through the northern gates off Maxwell Road. The delay with permissions to open on Sunday came about because they were

asked to wait until the council meets after the election. There was also the complication that Jamie Arbuckle, who had originally organised the market, was ‘on the hustings’ as a council and mayoral candidate Mr Rutherford said. “That makes it more political.� Mr Rutherford said that once the permissions were obtained, the A & P Society would run the market in the sheep pavilion, alongside the Farmer’s Market. The Farmers’ Market was more than welcome to use the site too, he said. “They will hold the position they have always held.� The money A & P would make from the lease of the people’s market sites would come to the society and would be used to upgrade the stock pavilions. “They are super old buildings and we want to maintain and preserve them.� MDC assets and services manager Mark Wheeler, who knew nothing about the plans for this week’s opening until contacted by the Sun on Tuesday, was very clear that the society would need council approval to access the grounds. There would be, he said, no council meetings until after the

Derry family sell CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1. “It’s a big culture shock,� said John. While it was hard for his mother, who had gone to work every day for most of nearly four decades, she was looking forward to a chance to enjoy her grandchildren and do some more charity work. Joanne, like himself, was still assessing her options, though John will be working with his other sister Susan Bugler who runs the family’s property company.

He will be overseeing the “hoops and hurdles� that will arise as they prepare for next year’s Springlands construction project. It will see the entire Springlands mall given over to Countdown, enlarging it from 1800 to 4000 square metres. John said the current mall tenants had all expressed interest in the new premises to be built on the site for them before the supermarket extensions take place after Christmas.

election on October 7. “There are resource consent, food permit issues and a range of other things including parking and toilets.� Former Community Market organiser Jamie Arbuckle said that he was pleased to hand over the organisation of the market to A & P. “I will just be a stallholder. And that’s the way it should be. The profits should go back to the community in this way.� He said they did have a Plan B, as they still had the use of the Redwood Tavern carpark for Sunday, but he foresaw “an interesting few days� and possibly an interesting Sunday morning as the issue of access to the showgrounds was resolved. “Council could give permissions immediately if they wanted too. They have already sat on their hands over this for too long,� he said. 7 ( % . / . ,9 4 ( % " % 3 4 7 ) , , $ /

Council candidates at last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public meetings often focused on the controversial â&#x20AC;&#x153;closed doorsâ&#x20AC;? workshops and the $125 million loan the Marlborough District Council is looking at. Councillor Peter Jerram said claims of closed doors were â&#x20AC;&#x153;bullshit.â&#x20AC;? And Mayor Alister Sowman said at a Fish and Game candidates meeting the closed doors issue was â&#x20AC;&#x153;a beat-upâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many claims are wrong or just plain scaremongering.â&#x20AC;? At the Elim Church Hall meeting however, Jam ie

David Dew.

A rbuck le, candidate for mayor and council, slammed in-committee workshops. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Council seems out of touch

with closed doors, suggesting hidden agendas,â&#x20AC;? he said. Candidate Jessica Bagge called for complete transparency and governance. The $125 million loan also got attention with Jamie Arbuckle calling it a â&#x20AC;&#x153;debt binge of $125 millionâ&#x20AC;?. Others called for discipline with candidate Tom Harrison calling for prudence and restraint on hand-outs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rates are a tax and in a recession you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t raise taxes.â&#x20AC;? David Dew said that six years ago when he retired as a councillor, there was no

external debt and there were funds in the bank. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crazy cost-plus stuff. At the current rate of mismanagement, in eight years time, one third of pensionersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; income will go to rates.â&#x20AC;? He said that within three weeks he envisaged ways to prune $500,000 to $750,000 off expenditure. However councillor Gerald Hope backed the $125 million loan concept saying Nelson and Tasman district councils had borrowed much more heavily than Marlborough intended to do.

Come fishing this weekend in the Sounds Recreational fishers have been invited to take part in a stocktake of the Queen Charlotte fishery with a random draw for prizes. The Inaugural Sounds Stocktake Day will take place this Saturday Oct 02 . â&#x20AC;&#x153;The aim is to get as many people as we can fishing on

this day to give us a â&#x20AC;&#x153;glimpseâ&#x20AC;? of what the actual stock levels of fish are in the Sounds,â&#x20AC;? says organiser Mark Baxter of Picton. Fishing can be done from a boat, jetty or the shore with participants recording catch details as to species, length, approximate location and passing

it on to the Marlborough Recreational Fishersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Association, so data can be collated. Mark Baxter said participants will be made very aware that under the current controversial ban on blue cod fishing, no blue cod can be kept but must be returned. A random draw of all responses

will be held with a Grand Prize offered by Sounds Connection of a four hour introductory trip to Sounds fishing trip. Supplementary prizes will feature rod and reels and lures. Participants should contact Mark Baxter (573 8843) or Lawrie Stevenson at Picton Sportsworld (573 6963)

Mayoral candidates have their say Sowman, Alistair: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve served Marlborough for six years as Mayor, and a term as councillor, so I offer experience and a depth of understanding of Council business. I believe ratepayers have confidence in me because they know Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sincere in wanting whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best for Marlborough. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learnt a great deal in this job and I know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a job for the faint-hearted. Councillors have a challenging role, balancing many interests and often grappling with very difficult decisions. I bring my personal integrity and Arbuckle, Jamie: I am a sixth generation Marlburian with my family tree leading back to Jack and Betty Guard settling in Kakapo Bay Port Underwood in 1832 and the McManaway family back to the 1860â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. My family and I have been involved in the Horticulture and Farming industry since 1960â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Last year I help set-up the Sunday Community Market to be a market for all our community. I want to lead a open council that puts people first and listens to the communities needs. I want to lead a council that creates an economic environment where jobs are protected and created for the people of Marlborough. I want to lead a Council that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t create a burden of debt for our children and

common sense to the leadership role. My open-door policy and my belief in hearing all sides during debate is my recipe for good quality decision-making. I understand ratepayers expect essential services and community facilities maintained to a good standard. A wise Council must also have foresight to prepare for the future. I will continue to strive to ensure the Council follows a financial management plan that safely balances each of these important goals. Alistair Sowman

The current council proposes rate rises for the next 8yrs of 7.5% on average per year plus increasing debt levels from zero to 125 million by 2016. The council wants to build infrastructure for our future such as car parks while at present we have a community that must boil there drinking water.

Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in a name? A brief history: McArtney Street With Mark Stevenson First National

Mr R. McArtney was elected Mayor in December 1889, and within three weeks councillor W.H. Fields suggested there should be a Cook Strait ferry service from Picton. Mr McArtney began his mayoralty at a time when the second Boer War had begun and for the first time, New Zealand troops were sent on overseas service. Beverley, in the official borough history â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The First Hundredâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, records that in January 1900, Mr S.M. Neville sent a horse named Blenheim to South Africa for the troops. It arrived at Capetown in good condition. During February many patriotic concerts and fund-raising efforts were held for troops. On March 26, 1900 The Marlborough High School was opened in the Sunday School room of the Church of the Nativity. (It was tranferred to the Stepenson Street site in 1901.) In May 19, 1900 Blenheim shared the excitement of the rest of the Empire at the war news of the relief of the besieged town of Mafeking. All shops closed and flags and bunting were put up. Bands paraded the streets and Beverley says there were â&#x20AC;&#x153;merry scenesâ&#x20AC;? late into the night. In March 1901 council abolished the ward system for elections. By September, Blenheim was reported as having â&#x20AC;&#x153;a great drainage problemâ&#x20AC;?. Proudly sponsored by...

War canoe memory

Dear Ed, Reading the article in last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sun, and hearing the interview with Christine Cole-Catley on National Radio on the same day, brought back memories of the day of June 12 1993 when women of Marlborough were permitted to paddle the Maori war canoe (waka) Te Awatea Hou in the Sounds. This was due to the efforts of Christine and probably a few other women to celebrate Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Suffrage Year. The celebration was to be unique among the many planned throughout New Zealand. It was a dreadfully wet day but on phoning Christine beforehand we were told it was not going to be cancelled. In one of the boat sheds at Waikawa we were put through the preliminaries with our paddles by one of local Maori men and taught the Maori word to chant each time the paddle was placed in the water, then we set off. After an enjoyable and unusual experience we returned to the jetty like half drowned rats. Patricia Swindells.

Courage to share Hi, just wanted to congratulate both Celeste on her well written story and Geoff Robinson for having the courage to share his story about prostate cancer. As a spin off of the story appearing in your paper I had a phone enquiry from a gentleman enquiring about getting a prostate check. He was aware that he should start at 40 and acknowledged his first check would be 8 years late but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really pleasing to see that the story prompted some proactive response. Celeste wrote the story with a positive and informative slant and I hope there are many many other Marlborough men visiting their GPs for a prostate check. Michelle Dawson Health Promoter

Recycling fiasco Dear Ed The new recycling scheme is a fiasco. With everything lumped together in the one bin what a thankless task, sorting it out at the recycling centre. Whoever dreamed this up and whoever approved it (Mayor and councillors) was in â&#x20AC;&#x153; la-la land.â&#x20AC;? Given the work sorting, no wonder

ratepayers are being lumped with an additional cost. While on rubbish, when is council going to encourage people to take rubbish to the dump instead of charging exorbitant fees? Is it a surprise rubbish dumping happens in the country? Annoyed Ratepayer

Ban cellphones? Dear Ed, Government has banned cellphones while driving, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an equal danger in supermarkets where women shoppers yakking on their cell phones drive their supermarket trolleys erratically, endangering other shoppers. Government should pass an urgent

law banning women talking on cellphones while trying to steer trolleys. If government wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, supermarkets should. Clearly women cannot multi-task, i.e. cell phone gossip while supermarket shopping. Frightened Male Shopper

Hard done by? Dear Ed You might be forgiven for thinking that we live in a town that is full of negative doom and gloom citizens. This is judged by the number of personality-driven media campaigns that are published as letters to the editor. Our present and past councillors, fronted by Mayor Alistair Sowman, have done a outstanding job of representing our region, the assets that we have now and the infrastructure that we want for our children. They gather all of the facts, they make decisions based on these and they move towards the future. The majority of negative people have half the facts, are personality driven and keep pulling things backwards

and sideways, and are the first to preach a undemocratic society. I will personally contribute, to a one way air-ticket to Australia, to those negative people that feel that they are hard done by here in Marlborough. Part of our role as community citizens is to support the people who put themselves forward into the position of governance, right or wrong they me be, they have all of the facts and work in all of our best interests as a community. To redeem your â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am a Negative B**** â&#x20AC;&#x153; voucher for your one way air ticket please send a self addressed envelope to Chris Fortune, Professional Love Marlb orough Consultant, P O BOX 991, Blenheim.

A powerful message Ali and Julie Radich talk to Celeste Lodewyk

You can shed tears that he is gone Or you can smile because he has lived. You can close your eyes and pray that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll come back, Or you can open your eyes and see all that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s left. Your heart can be empty because you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see him, Or you can be full of the love you shared. You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday, Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember him only that he is gone, Or you can cherish his memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back,â&#x20AC;? Or you can do what he would want, smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

news2@blenheimsun.co.nz It has been 22 months since the tragic death of Blenheim man Damian Radich. Damian died as a result of an accident in October 2008, whilst living in Brisbane, Australia. For parents Ali and Julie losing their only child has been a devastating experience, drawn out longer than necessary because Damian did not make a Will before leaving the country. So as Ali and Julie prepare to take the final step toward settling the last of their sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s affairs, they have decided to come public with their message for all families; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any young person intending to travel should include Will and Power of Attorney on their to-do list.â&#x20AC;? Born and raised in Blenheim, Damian decided in his mid 20â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to move to Australia to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;branch outâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and experience life working overseas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He wanted to experience life in every way,â&#x20AC;? Ali smiles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was a young man who lived life to itsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fullest and moving to Australia was an exciting new step for him.â&#x20AC;? Prior to leaving, Julie suggested to Damian that he create a Will, an idea which was never followed through. After just 18 months of living in Brisbane, Ali and Julie received the devastating news of Damianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death. Damian had been enjoying a weekend with some visiting friends when he accidentally fell from the second storey of a hotel where the group was staying. In the days which followed both Ali and Julie rushed to Australia where they prepared to finalise everything of Damianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and bring him home. But because Damian did not have a Will, is has taken nearly two years to shut everything down, Julie says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just went into auto mode, doing everything we could to get him home as soon as we could, but because of the legalities involved with bank accounts, the waiting on the coronerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report and sorting of his belongings we are only now at the stage of shutting everything down. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a long, hard and distressing journey,â&#x20AC;? she says. According to the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyer John Leggett of Wisheart Macnab & Partners, because Damian was living in Australia at the time of his death the administration of his estate was dealt with under Australian law. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Australian position is very similar to New Zealand, anyone dying without a Will, dies â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;intestateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. If this happens, the Administration Act specifies how your property will be distributed and who is

entitled to apply to administer the estate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ali and Julie were Damianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s closest next of kin and had this responsibility, though the whole process would have been simpler had Damian made a Will, appointed executors and specified who he wanted to inherit his property and possessions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;paperworkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and administration process is almost always greater and therefore more expensive when a person dies intestate,â&#x20AC;? he says.

(%2$3 *%7%,,%23

The importance of making a Will does not only apply to property and possessions, it also states what the person would like have happen in the event of death. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had no idea what Damian wanted done with his car and possessions, what his favourite songs were for the funeral or whether he wanted to be buried or cremated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is where it is important to state what you want, name a Power of Attorney and perhaps

give your parents signing rights to bank accounts when you leave the country. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about benefiting from a death, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enabling people to act on your behalf to do what you want done rather than having to second guess. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If our story and advice can help at least one person, then thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;s fine by us. We just want to stress the importance of being prepared and ensuring that your children have a Will in place, especially when traveling overseas.â&#x20AC;?

WILL

11

Are you over 18, but without a Will or Enduring Power of Attorney (EPA)? Even if you feel you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have sufficient assets to justify a Will, or trust your loved ones to carry out your wishes if you become incapable, there are some very good reasons why these documents are considered so vital under the law. Graeme Frewin, Guardian Trustâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regional manager for Wellington and Nelson regions answers some key questions about Wills Why do I need a Will? Estate planning is all about minimising the emotional and financial hardship for the people left behind when we die, and an up-to-date Will is at the heart of a good estate plan. Everyone over 18 should make a Will, because it is the only way to ensure that your assets are distributed according to your wishes. If you die without a Will, the Administration Act 1969 applies, so the law arbitrarily decides â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;who gets whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of your assets and belongings, regardless of the needs of those close to you.

When do I need to change my Will? You need to update your Will whenever there is a major change in your life. Marriage (or re-marriage) usually invalidates an existing Will, so you should make a new Will when you get married or divorced. Your Will also needs to change if you separate, or start or end a de-facto relationship, if you have a child or grandchild, if a significant other dies or if you buy or sell major assets, such as property. Special circumstances, such as adopted children or children with a disability, may require additional provisions in your Will. Regardless of particular life changes, it is best to review your Will every three to five years.

Do I have enough assets to have a Will? Assets are more than just money or property, and a Will is more than just distributing assets after you die so everyone should have a Will regardless of what assets they hold. A Will is the essential mechanism for instructing who will benefit from your estate and how; for example, you may have particular items of sentimental value that you wish to be left to specific individuals. It also enables you to appoint a guardian for your children, specify how your funeral should be conducted, and relate your preference for burial or cremation.

72:16+(1'6($721/,0,7(' 7EWELCOMEANYNEW OREXISTINGCLIENTSWISHING TOREVIEWTHEIRWILLS ORMAKENEWONES 0H"- 3EYMOUR3TREET "LENHEIM %MAILOFlCE TSLAWCONZ WWWTSLAWCONZ &REEONSITEPARKING

Wills are not just for the elderly. Young people should also consider preparing a will.

How do I choose an executor? The executor is the person or company who will administer your estate, liaise with your beneficiaries and carry out the terms of your Will. There is a lot they need to do, including the application for probate to the High Court, the payment of debt and distribution of assets, and the finalisation of all tax liabilities, so you must be sure that your nominated executor knows what is involved. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also important that your executor can act fairly and without bias towards all your beneficiaries, so it helps if they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t emotionally involved in the outcome. In most cases, it is advisable to have a sole executor rather than two or more, and many people choose to have a professional executor, such as a trustee company. Professional executors know exactly what to do and in what order, can deal with any complex issues, and are impartial, so cannot be swayed by emotional appeals about the distribution of your assets.

Do I need both a Will and an Enduring Power of Attorney (EPA)? A Will ensures your wishes are carried out after you die, while an Enduring Power of Attorney ensures your property and personal welfare are handled as you wish when you are alive but incapacitated and unable to act on your own behalf. Both provide important legal protection. What can an Enduring Power of Attorney do for me? Everyone over the age of 18 should complete an EPA, which is a legal document appointing an attorney to act on your behalf. Without one, if you become incapacitated no one has the authority to make decisions regarding your assets or personal welfare. Your family will then be required to apply to the Court for a manager, a process which can be lengthy as well as emotionally and financially stressful. Why is an EPA so important? It is usually unforeseen events such as an accident, illness or even an unplanned trip away that can cause problems for you and your dependents, if the event leaves you without the capacity to act on your own behalf. An Enduring Power of Attorney will provide for this and can also be used temporarily, for instance if you are taking a planned trip overseas and want your property and investments managed until your return.

How does an Enduring Power of Attorney work? There are two types of EPA: One that governs your property (assets), and one that governs your personal care and welfare. You can decide how your Enduring Power of Attorney will operate, by: Specifying when it takes effect (immediately, sometime in the future, or in an emergency); Deciding whether the attorney looks after some or all of your assets; Appointing an individual to work with your attorney; Cancelling or changing your EPA at any time, as long as you have the mental capacity to do so. Who should serve as my attorney? An attorney can be an individual or an organisation; however, while a company can be appointed as a property attorney to look after your financial affairs (such as running a business, filing tax returns, supervising investments), only a private individual can be appointed as a personal care and welfare attorney. This attorney attends to accommodation arrangements, purchasing clothing and personal items, and making medical decisions. We suggest you nominate someone you trust implicitly, such as a friend or relative, to act in this capacity.

Is your Will current? If your will was written more than five years ago, it may be out of date. You should revise your will whenever you have a significant change in your life, such as: Marriage Divorce Change of financial circumstances

Birth or death of children Buying a house/property Entering a rest home

Our qualified staff will ensure that your will complies with all current legislation in respect of the distribution of your estate. Phone 03 578 4229 for an appointment

Blenheim Ward: Electing 7 Councillors As a service to our readers, the Sun has invited all candidates in the Marlborough District Council and Nelson Marlborough District Health Board elections to submit a 150-word profile and photograph. Voting papers will be delivered to you between September 17-22 and the postal ballot closes at noon on Saturday October 9. The Sun has now published all candidate profiles from the Blenheim Ward. The Sun apologises to Graham Lindsay, as his profile did arrived earlier, but was misplaced in our system. Ted Lawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s email address was left off the orginal list of candidates supplied by council.

Lindsay, Graham: Graham and Bev initially came to Blenheim to develop Toptown Cinemas. They loved Marlborough and decided to shift here. After leaving Palmerston North Graham was made a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit (MNZM) for services to regional development. In twelve years Graham has facilitated the development of Toptown Cinemas, Vintners Retreat Villas and Marlborough Vintners Hotel (MVH). He recently retired as a JP after 33 years, is a Past President of the Chamber of Commerce and current Chair of the Marlborough Regional Development Trust. Graham brings business experience and an entrepreneurial track record to Council. This region was late feeling the effects of the recession but is now really feeling some pain. Graham believes he brings a proven record of positive action to Council. He is active in the business community. Prudent management will be required to ensure Marlborough emerges rejuvenated and in good financial heart.

I have a young family with Jack, James at primary school , Sophie at home with my partner Chelly Taylor. After selling our business I now have the time to put my business skills back into the community and am willing to ask the questions that need to be asked to get the job done . As a councillor I will make every effort to ensure that any decisions I help make are based on all information available and I will turn up to council meetings to represent you . I will listen to your concerns and not ignore you . As a councillor you need to listen too your community and not just when elections come round ! Time for some new faces on council !!! Vote 1 for Ted Laws . Taylor, Graeme: Age 59 years. Married to Helen. Father of four. I have almost come to the end of my second term as a Councillor on the Marlborough District Council. I have enjoyed being part of a successful Council Team, knowing much has been achieved and would welcome the opportunity to see unfinished projects through to completion.

For many women, their wedding day has been a life long dream. The perfect dress, the most beautiful flowers, glittering jewelry and finishing with stunning photographs to last a lifetime - sound familiar? As exciting as it all sounds, it takes months - even years to plan your ideal wedding. Blenheim bride Michelle Alexander shares her wedding experience with those planning for their own. Michelle and husband Ben were married on February 27, 2010 at Drylands Estate, where they also held their reception. Describing herself as not a good organiser, Michelle gave herself plenty of time by planning her wedding 12months prior. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One thing I found was that the earlier you can sort things out the better. It surprised me how quickly the venues fill up if you are planning for January and February weddings,â&#x20AC;? she says.

One of the most useful wedding planning tools Michelle says was the annual Wedding Expo where couples have access to different services, advice and information. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I found the expo really useful, it was where I found my cake maker after weeks of searching,â&#x20AC;? she says. One thing Michelle says she would have changed was where she purchased her dress. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I bought my dress from Christchurch without thinking about fittings and travel time to see the dress maker,â&#x20AC;? she laughs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had to travel three or more times for fittings, so I can now see the benefits of buying locally.â&#x20AC;? Michelleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advice to other brides; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to get as many people to help so your wedding day is easy and enjoyable, because at the end of the day itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about celebrating your love - not getting hung up on the small details,â&#x20AC;? she smiles.

RUFFLES

If Hollywood is your thing and you like a bit of glamour in your dresses, then one that harkens back to the 50s Silver Screen era would be perfect for you. These types of dresses feature belted waistlines and hems that go all the way to the floor and sometimes beyond. A few, though, go only to the knees, but have a sheer layer of fabric overlaid to accentuate the legs and the hemline.

If you want to wear a strapless gown, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to feel overly bare youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in luck in the trend-setting stakes. Emerging strongly this season are cover-ups ranging from floorlength lace coats to airy tulle boleros, feathered capelets, sheer seethrough or lacey sleeves and more variations on a cover-up theme.

This year designers were big on blooms of all sizes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from simple, cherry blossom details to oversized, eye catching rosettes. The garden glamour leads to a back-to-nature fashion. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s especially appropriate for an outdoor wedding in a park, by a lake, or on a beach.

Another dramatic line for this season id the 50s inspired â&#x20AC;&#x153;mermaidâ&#x20AC;? dress. In keeping with the dramatic influence of this seasons exuberant designs, a gown that is slender through the hips but flares into an exaggerated trumpet skirt will be just as popular as the full skirted ball gown.

Ruffles predominated as a huge trend for 2010. Whether they are on the skirt, the bodice, or the veil, ruffles were seen everywhere. Even strapless gowns have ruffles on the neckline. Perhaps a little bolero jacket over a strapless gown is more your style? If so, the jacket must have the ruffles to make your look complete this season.

Preparing for the big day Your wedding day is a unique day in your lifetime, and preparation to ensure it is a perfect day is intense. Planning a wedding is exciting, but it can be stressful and frustrating if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t plan well. There are a myriad of details and options to be considered, selected or discarded, organised and finalised and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re likely at some stage to suffer â&#x20AC;&#x153;bride brainâ&#x20AC;?, a condition caused by information and management overload. Bride brain is a condition that can

strike at any time. It could be at the beginning of the planning process, when the mind is bombarded with ideas about the big day â&#x20AC;&#x201C; when, where, the dress, colours, flowers, music, and the list goes on. For others it might be for no apparent reason in the middle of the planning stages. For most, symptoms donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appear until closer to the day, when the to-do list appears to get longer instead of shorter.

It appears as if everyone is pulling you in different directions and there simply arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough hours in the day. To avoid falling prey to bride brain, the most important thing you can do is to stay organised, advice any professional wedding planner will give, and the means by which they manage to plan weddings as a business. Before all else, establish a budget. Discuss this with your fiancĂŠ and family so you can set priorities and the style of wedding you can realistically afford.

To get started on your programme of organisation, the professionals advise: â&#x20AC;˘Start a wedding binder. This can be simple and very cheap, but its value is immeasurable. Organise everything pertaining to your wedding. You will take this binder with you to each meeting with potential vendors and it will contain all the information for the entire wedding. â&#x20AC;˘Sections should include. contact lists, timelines, checklists, floor plans, calendar, budget, theme or style (here you can keep ideas, clipp seating chart and any other important information related to the day.

Silk wedding fabrics recently opened a new a retail and wholesale showroom in Christchurch, allowing South Islanders the opportunity to buy specialist silk wedding fabrics from one of New Zealandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest silk importers. The South Island branch is overseen by his daughter, Biba Bedi, also the owner of fashion jewellery business, Four Corners NZ. Dr Anoop Bedi first opened the Sherazad Silks in 1986. As quoted in the Dominion Post (2006) he says he has been selling silks to New Zealanders for 20 years and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;become an addiction, with no side effectsâ&#x20AC;?. Their colours, textures, sheens, durability, mystique and versatility

And his shop, Sherazad in Wellington, and now in Christchurch, reflects his obsession. It stocks hundreds of varieties in a multitude of colours and shades. His biggest seller remains bridal silks, which alone requires him to stock seven shades of white to match a brideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s complexion. Dr Bedi looks forward to ensuring that his silks and the quality behind them transcend the generations, and their value is transferred from mother to daughter. Even in these tough economic times, his clients throughout New Zealand still keep returning to buy more.

â&#x20AC;˘Use checklists. You can adapt them to your specific needs and change the timeline as necessary. Try to book your vendors as soon as possible, particularly your wedding reception site. Keep in mid that some of the more popular locations book more than a year in advance. Vendors who can only perform one or two weddings a day should be the first on your list â&#x20AC;&#x201C; marriage celebrant, photographer, videographer, DJ or band, and the like. â&#x20AC;˘Set Boundaries. Everyone has an opinion on how a wedding should be presented and performed. Let relatives and friends know that you appreciate their advice, but it is your day and they need to respect your opinions and wants. â&#x20AC;˘Accept help. If friends and family are

offering to constructively help, take them up on their offer. If they are good helpers, it will take some of the stress off you and your husbandto-be. So delegate when you can, no matter how small the task. â&#x20AC;˘Compromise. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stress if your fiancĂŠ does not want to be as involved in the planning as much as you would like. Wedding planning is not much a male domain. â&#x20AC;˘Enjoy. Above all, remember to enjoy the planning process. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let a myriad of details overwhelm you, and always keep in mind the reason for your special day. Treat planning your wedding as the big adventure it marks, as you embark on an exciting new phase of your life.

Weddings The Brides 2010 Diary

Planning is crucial says bride to be Melissa Warmouth started planning her February 2011 wedding over Christmas 2009. Partner Nic Cowdrey proposed eighteen months ago and there seemed plenty of time. But now as Melissa grapples with organising a function for 140 guests, a further thirty at the ceremony and the dance afterwards, she wonders if they should have waited for another year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Getting the list right was the hardest. I hope we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t left anyone out.â&#x20AC;? It led to a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bridezillaâ&#x20AC;? moment, she said. There was another one over the invitations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made them myself, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so time-consuming. It would have been cheaper and easier to buy them.â&#x20AC;?

C

areful consideration should be used when choosing a wedding photographer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you want your memories to be picture perfect, after all. Take into account personal referrals, visit photographersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; websites, and phone prospective photographers and organise face-to-face meetings. Start by making a list of specialist wedding

The many hours on the telephone co-ordinating everything were not easy for Melissa, a hairdresser who runs her own business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ended up having to get a celebrant from Nelson, because I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a male one here.â&#x20AC;? She also discovered why there are so many Friday weddings in Marlborough. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are events at wineries and other venues at weekends. Things like the Wine and Food Festival, Blues and Brews ...â&#x20AC;? She was able to obtain Woodend Gardens for the ceremony and Clubs of Marlborough for the breakfast. That was good, as they can make up the tables on the Friday. Getting a photographer was a mission. Melissaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unfazed by the several

photo-graphers. Ask friends and relatives for recommendation, then check the internet and carefully review their portfolios. You will save time if you pre-qualify the photographers on your list in this manner. Look for photos which â&#x20AC;&#x153;jump outâ&#x20AC;? at you and embody the style youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like your photographs to show. Check if he or she will be available on your wedding day, their specialised type of photography (candid, traditional, photo-journalism, a mixture, film or digital are some points to cover), and get an idea of how much they charge and for what.

thousand dollars that will cost because, she says, the photos you have forever. There was a learning curve with the wedding dress â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a $1000 Maggie Sottero Trade Me â&#x20AC;&#x153;bargainâ&#x20AC;? not true to the measurements posted. It is too complex to fix it for her tiny 5â&#x20AC;&#x2122;1â&#x20AC;&#x2122;frame. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meant buying a new one, also by Sottero, but she will on-sell both on Trade Me. The budget was unexpectedly high, reaching $30,000, including three bridesmaidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dresses and the groomsmensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; suits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go over that though.â&#x20AC;? One crucial piece of advice Melissa has for other brides is to consider getting in a wedding planner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It might have proved cheaper and easier in the long run.â&#x20AC;?

Try to get a feel for the photographerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personality. Bear in mind that the photographer is going to be very much a part of your wedding day and you want to be entirely comfortable with the person. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not sure the candidate has the personality to fit with your family, friends and relatives then this person is not a good choice â&#x20AC;&#x201C; no matter how good a photographer. You must have a good rapport so be sure to select someone you feel good about and someone who respects your tastes and wishes. You want someone who will work with you and who sincerely enjoys taking part in your extra special day.

Walking the talk for Mental Health With International Mental Health Awareness Week beginning on Monday October 4, Supporting Families (SF) Marlborough has planned special activities around the theme â&#x20AC;&#x153;Flourishing for EveryBODYâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The focus is on how we take care of ourselves both physically and mentally,â&#x20AC;? says SF Marlborough manager Cheryl Thompson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Physical and mental health are so closely connected.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why one of their major activities for the week is to be a walk along the quail trail in the Wither Hills farm park on Saturday October 9. Cheryl has tried it herself and she can vouch that it is an easy walk, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just under an hour return.â&#x20AC;? There is a choice at the half way point, to continue on the flat back to the car park, or over the hill and around the track. It is planned as a family fun day with local Kapa Haka and Post Natal â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Support groups fundraising with sausage sizzle, drinks, muffins and fruit at the main carpark. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be a quiz along the walkway too,â&#x20AC;? said Cheryl, adding that there would also be spot prizes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great way to keep people interacting and talking as they go.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bring your friends.â&#x20AC;? Another sure-fire fun activity is the Laughter Workshop being run by Lynda Woodgate of Nelson.

Cheryl Thompson, manager of SF Marlborough, has â&#x20AC;&#x153;walked the talkâ&#x20AC;? with the Wither Hills Quail Trail. The fun event is planned for Saturday October 9.

SMART Books, sound scheme

SMART Books: Self help books on mental health issues and brochures about the new scheme are now on display at the Marlborough District Library. Three of the principal participants in the scheme are, from left, Christine Smith, the CEO of the Marlborough Primary Health Organisation, Glenn Webster, Marlborough District Librarian Glenn Webster and Alison Graham, Smart Co-ordinator, who instigated the scheme.

Alison Graham is Marlboroughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s SMART Co-ordinator. SMART stands for Sourcing Mental Health Advice, Resources and Treatment and Alisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only person in New Zealand with that title. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s created herself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It sounds a lot better than Primary Mental Health Services Co-ordinator. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too hard to say!â&#x20AC;? The SMART programme is run by Alisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s employer Kimi Hauora Wairau. Alison works with GPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Maori health providers in mental health, assisting people to access GPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and a range of treatments and therapies for their recovery from conditions such as mild to moderate depression and anxiety. On Tuesday this week, Alison took the SMART idea a step further with the launch of the SMART Books programme, in conjunction with the Marlborough District Library and the NMDHB. A good set of â&#x20AC;&#x153;self-helpâ&#x20AC;? books has been

collated for people who have discomfort with their mental health â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and for those who support them. All the books have been assessed by both Alison and clinical psychologist Deborah Lee of Witherlea House. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Excellent in their field, up-to-date, relevant for New Zealanders and available here in Blenheim,â&#x20AC;? said Alison. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the early stages of depression selfhelp is very useful, which is where these books come into their own.â&#x20AC;? The library has put the books on display this week, each bearing the brightly-coloured SMART logo on the spine to help people find them once they are shelved. The library also has the glossy SMART Books brochures available and the brochure will be distributed to GP practices in coming weeks. A full list of recommended self help books is on the Marlborough PHO and Marlborough District Library websites.

Cheryl said that would be held on October 7 at 2pm in the Community Link room at WINZ building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Laughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good for the soul.â&#x20AC;? The groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s library display also begins on Monday.

Magic roundabout Blenheim driving instructor Rod Hill says he has no concerns about the often-criticised โ€œMagic :HVSHFLDOLVHLQ Roundaboutโ€ at the end of Main Street. :LQGVFUHHQUHSODFHPHQW โ€œThereโ€™s nothing wrong with the roundabout. :LQGVFUHHQUHSDLU โ€œItโ€™s the people using it who cause the problem,โ€ 6DIHW\JODVVODPLQDWHG WRXJKHQHG he said. +HDGODPSUHSDLU FKLSSURWHFWLRQFRYHUV โ€œThere are a lot of drivers out there who donโ€™t :LQGVFUHHQUHVHDOV fully understand how it should be used.

I think perhaps some of their parents and 0DLQ6WUHHW%OHQKHLP ZZZQRYXVFRQ] grandparents should ask them how to use it!โ€ He said he appreciated that with two lanes 6SHFLDOLVLQJLQDOODVSHFWVRI coming on to it and only one coming off it could be seen as difficult, especially with the 5DGLDWRUVย‡2LOFRROHUV railway line as well. +HDWH[FKDQJHUVย‡,QWHUFRROHUV โ€œAnd some truckies ZHDFFHSW donโ€™t like it because it is too tight.โ€ However, in the long term, once the planned bypass was built, wherever that might finally be, the roundabout would 0DLQ6W%OHQKHLP3KRQH$Q\WLPH become a lot quieter.

Beachball Bangers win A Grade title Last Thursday night at Marlborough Lines Stadium 2000 the grade finals and playoffs of Marlborough Volleyball Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fairweathersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Competition were held. The final in A grade saw joint top qualifier, Magnum without their regular captain, Nigel Sowman, They lacked their ususal cohesiveness that they regularly display, while Beachball Bangers, combined well on attack and defence. Alister Mackenzie, outstanding as BBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s setter, kept Greg Lindsay-Brown, Alfie Walter and newcomer Jack Wheeler well fed on attack. The result was that Beachball Bangers are the new and proud title-holders. Playing for third place, The Boys tried everything in their young arsenal but Fiafia had a bit more firepower winning two sets to one. No Strings took the wooden spoon as Wayward Spikersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; precision saw them take a decisive three-set set victory. In the B grade, Sixes and Sevens matched the Picton Team for skill and team play. Too many unforced errors in the first set however gave Picton the two-point buffer they needed, The second set was Sixes and Sevens with a steady, relaxed approach. In the third set both teams traded point for point but at 13-all, the Picton boys shifted up a gear. Congratulations to Joe Healey and his Picton Team! Next term, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be returning
