Tata Swim: Cool sea, warm smiles

Two-way swimmers set off with overall winner Hayden Squance leading the charge. Photo: Shelley Grell. SHELLEY GRELL

After days of cool winds and spring temperatures, last Saturday surprised everyone with a perfectly still morning and a beautifully calm sea for the Tata Swim. More than 60 swimmers entered the race, lower numbers than in previous years, with few juniors braving the 170C sea. The event, which started in 1978, is a much-loved holiday activity for locals, visitors and competitive swimmers, and many have competed on multiple occasions. Some, like the Stevens family from Wellington, mark it on the annual family calendar. The expressions on everyone’s faces at the end were priceless, with wide smiles stretched from one yellow capped, goggle-squished ear to the other. Asked how he felt about not beating his record 14:54 minute two-way swim time this year, the event’s overall winner, Hayden Squance, replied, “I’m not sure. The conditions were a little choppier with a fairly strong drift, but it was a really nice swim. I love entering the Tata Swim, as it is such a nice place and an event to be proud of. I wouldn’t change a thing.”

Tata resident Christine Pullar was greeted with a proud hug and kiss by her husband Michael when she finished her two-way swim. “I’ve swum the race about 15 times and always come in at the end. I was built to carry on for a long time slowly. I do it because I enjoy sea swimming,” she said. Pohara local Shanti Smith first swam the race when she was nine months pregnant. This time her daughter Isla, who turns 11 next month, joined her mum in her first race. “When I was pregnant, I would swim every day and loved the weightlessness of being in the water. The island isn’t far, about 750m. My neighbour was so nervous for me and tried to talk me out of it, but I was like ‘I’m good!’,” recalled Shanti. “That’s why I love swimming!” added Isla. Denise Rogers, a retired swim coach, said it was important to keep doing these activities, or people lose the ability. “I’m 72 and I never want to give up swimming. It’s stopped me from going senile. I’ve never been a competitive swimmer, but I believe in keeping fit. When the sea is suitable, I’ll swim a kilometre a day on the high tide at Pohara beach. Last season, I did

106 kilometres.” After the last 10 years of running the fundraiser event for Golden Bay Swimming, club secretary Maddy King, Alf Reid, and their extended family are calling it a day. “It’s time to hand over the reins and let someone else have the chance of doing it,” said Alf. “Plus I’d really like to swim the event next year,” added Maddy. Golden Bay Swimming Club president Shelley Grell said “Massive thanks to Maddy, Alf and their family and to all the Swim Club members and friends who’ve run this event over the years. The euphoric pride in their achievement was evident on all the swimmers’ faces, and it’s tremendous that Maddy, Alf and everyone have helped to create that for them. “Thanks to all the volunteers, members and friends of the Swimming Club who made this event possible - from the kayakers, support boats, St John, the harbourmaster and Tarakohe Port manager, to the timekeepers, runners and registration teams, the BBQ, soup and support crew, and the generous sponsors for gifting so many awesome prizes.”


A refreshed GB Weekly is launched today with a new banner and some subtle tweaks to style and layout. The most notable changes are to the title font and the introduction of the mohua bird roundel. The latest “facelift” follows three decades of continuous evolution and marks a new chapter in the ongoing story of The GB Weekly and its predecessors. The story began in the 1980s when demand for local news led to the launch of The Golden Bay Community News, a monthly sheaf of stapled A4 pages produced by an editorial committee of longstanding residents including Derry Kingston. It relied entirely on contributions and advertisers depositing copy and money in a box outside The Wholemeal Café in Takaka. The publication featured covers designed by local artists and ran for 20 years, but advertising was limited by its monthly schedule. In 1992, to address the need for weekly advertising, Derry published the first copy of The GB Weekly. It was intended to be a local information service - produced “in the Bay for the Bay” - and to compliment the Community News. By its third edition, page one displayed public notices, page two classifieds, and page three shopping and page four employment. It didn’t take long for The GB Weekly to become part of the Bay’s culture. By its third birthday, Derry’s successor as manager and editor, Maria Koch, had turned it into a small business that supported several part-time workers. Minor articles began to appear and Letters to the Editor was established. A move to computer-based publishing meant hand-drawn adverts gave way to a more professional look. Production of the Community News eventually ended and by 1999, The GB Weekly had assumed its familiar character with its Algerian font title, bar headings and extended news articles. Three years later, Maria Koch sold the paper to schoolteachers Marg Braggins and Neil Wilson, who had moved from Geraldine where Marg had founded a monthly community newspaper. Along with the change of ownership, the publication’s HQ moved to the couple’s home in Pohara. I n 2008, as newspapers moved increasingly online, Marg and Neil introduced a website allowing The GB Weekly to be read anywhere in the world. A year later, reflecting changes in the publishing world, the paper changed... Continued on page 2

Looking Through Glass is the apt title of local glass artist Beatrice Bourhis’ current exhibition. It features at Wairua Gallery, in Haile Lane, Pohara, where visitors can view the colourful glassworks on any day of the week. A celebration of life is evident in the vibrancy of her work, which is exactly what Beatrice aims for as she continues to evolve and experiment with the quality mediums she uses. She says she uses an abstract style because it allows her to work with intuition and emotion in an unconfined way. Colours and lights reflect as they interplay in the abstract paintings, allowing observers to use their own imaginations to see what they will. Beatrice enjoys the different perspectives and interpretations other people see in her work. Using as many as 12 layers of paint on the glass Beatrice creates bold colours, and builds plenty of texture. There is a sense of movement and energy throughout each piece. “I like to have them lively – but also peaceful,” says Beatrice. There are panels in series, which can be hung vertically, horizontally, diagonally or upside down to enhance the visions within. Some are large panels, others are smaller pieces entitled Space Colour Form, which alludes to the interplay of the pieces and the space around them. “They are designed to be purchased as a set which is colourco-ordinated for easy swap-around.” Turquoise is a feature colour, one Beatrice finds she can’t stay away from. She admits that working with glass and the size of the panels is hard work, having executed some large pieces of 1.20 x 1.40 metres. Inspiration is drawn from life itself. Beatrice declares: “There is so much beauty around us. I try to bring that into my work.” Incidentally, the cover of this year’s Arts of Mohua Guidebook features an example of her abstract work. Although this exhibition is purely abstract art, a lot of work comes from commissions for her functional art. Examples of Beatrice’s mirror work, coat hooks and shelving are to be found throughout Golden Bay in cafés and galleries, or check out her Beatrice Bourhis with her glass art at Wairua Gallery in Pohara. website: www.bebou.co.nz Photo: Ronnie Short.

The change in format meant that printing was moved out of the Bay, first to Blenheim’s Marlborough Express and later to Inkwise in Rolleston, where it remains. In 2017, GB Weekly reporter Jo Richards and wife Charlotte bought the title from Marg and Neil. They initially retained the HQ in Pohara but, in early 2019, moved the office to the

Citizens Band’s Crowther Reynish: 70 years of show days

“Ive never missed a Show Day since I started, never ever,” says Crowther. Photo: Anita Peters. ANITA PETERS

For an astonishing 70 years, Crowther Reynish has turned up on Show Day to play in the Takaka Citizens Brass Band and march in the Grand Parade. Recently he was honoured as the oldest serving member of the band. “And I’ve never missed a Show Day since I started,” he says. Crowther has spent almost his entire life playing with this historic band, which will reach its 140th milestone next year. For towns like Takaka, the brass band has always been a symbol of civic pride, and often comprised of generations of the same musical families. Crowther’s father Keith, famously able to play any instrument, was band conductor during the 1940s, and Crowther and one of his two sisters joined at a young age. Crowther’s son Michael has now been in the band for 40 years. Crowther would sit in on band practices alongside “off-beat” player “Sticky” (Keith) Baigent, a great teacher like his own father. “I was very much encouraged,” he said. He became a member at the tender age of eight, playing third cornet. His mother adapted his first band uniform by adding braces, which held his pants up around his chest. From age 13, Crowther attended St Bede’s College in Christchurch and joined the bugle band, where he was invited to play The Last Post at the school Anzac service. On a freezing morning in front of 800 people his cornet was brought out, prewarmed on a pillow with a hot water bottle. “Then I stood

and played The Last Post and the reveille, the first time I’d ever played that in public,” he said proudly. Since then he has played at endless Anzac services, in 1975 becoming an RSA Honorary Life member. While he also plays the flugelhorn, the cornet has always been his favourite instrument. He has always loved the regional band festivals, and one year celebrated a major achievement with Takaka’s Bavarian Band when it won the competition overall. With the “oom-pa-pa” beat and a Benny Hill number sung by Paul Sangster, the band were clear favourites, taking out every section. “After that we were even sponsored by one of the Working Men’s Clubs in Christchurch,” said Crowther. “It was good fun. I was the leader, so winning that was a real highlight.” Crowther’s band achievements didn’t stop there. Over the 70 years, missing very few Monday night band practices, he has been deputy conductor, lance corporal, corporal and sergeant of the band, president for the past 20 years, and was awarded Life Membership in 2001. But the sheer joy of playing in the band is what Crowther loves most, marching out in front in full dress uniform, particularly on Show Day and Anzac Day. “And doing 70 show days in all, 70 years in the band; this is very special to me.”

NEWS IN BRIEF Collaboration exhibition ANITA PETERS

Another collaborative exhibition of paintings, sculpture and sound by three esteemed artists has opened for a limited three-week season at Kereru Gallery in Mapua. G o l d e n B ay a r t i s t Robin Slow, carver Brian Flintoff and musician Bob Bickerton have again joined creative forces to present a 3D visual and audio experience, rich in story and myth, in their exhibition Nga Torino. An explanation of the title states: “Torino is the spiral, the flute and the name of the eardrum, all connecting Taurite (to restore balance) is one the presented works… of seven main paintings by Robin T h o u g h s e e m i n g l y Slow in the exhibition Nga Torino, separate at first glance, based on the seven stages of there is the connection existence. Photo: Supplied. that binds them together to form a whole - each individual’s effort is bound to a collective to not only express ideas but to continue to learn and share.” Robin explained: “We’ve had a number of exhibitions together and there’s always so much more to express.” Really, the works are musical scores, he said: “Brian created the instruments, I worked on the paintings and then Bob took the instruments to create a DVD that goes with these works. So really, this wonderful collaboration is exploring through sound and sight all the stories of the whenua.” Bob said he created the songs especially for this exhibition, blessed by backup vocals from three “exceptional” singers, Ariana Tikao, Solomon Rahui and Holly Tikao-Weir. “It was a real privilege to work with such amazing people so connected to Te Ao Maori, so wonderfully passionate about the stories they tell.” Nga Torino - a collaborative exhibition of paintings, sculpture and sound.

Speed limits not an issue of conscience

Dear Steve, I appreciate your letter (GBW 10/01). May I start by saying I believe in a representational democracy. When we, ratepayers and residents, choose a candidate to represent us it is that simple. To be a voice on our behalf to present our needs and challenges at the council table. You are well aware that I have put my hat in the ring to represent Golden Bay in the last three elections. My candidate profile is well recorded. I have constantly stated I would challenge the Local Government Act and demand transparency with actions of the decisions made in chambers and follow the majority will of constituents. “They that pay the piper call the tune.“ The fact that I was willing and prepared to receive the slings and arrows of ratepayers and accept criticism as a councillor, gives me a credible position to “fire them without fear or favour “. I have every respect for how Chris Hill is handling her new position, and no desire to give her unfair criticism. However the road speed issue is between a National Government Authority, (NZTA) and a Local Authority (TDC). The NZTA has declared Golden Bay roads are unsafe at 100kmph. For Chris to support the stance of the “status quo“ by TDC went against the greater public support nationally, and the recent local survey result. In her candidate profile she stated she would listen to her constituents. This issue is not a conscience vote but a clear desire to reduce the costs of death and injury on unsafe roads. Future statements of “driving to the conditions “, will be that of driving at lower speeds. Reg Turner

A labour of love

It’s been a bumpy start to the year at the Sustainable Living Centre (ex-Community Gardens). Two of our cherished volunteers were stabbed when they confronted a burglar that had been causing them distress for weeks. Luckily, they walked away with only minor wounds even though one of them is in considerable pain having had his lung punctured. We were all shocked and deeply saddened by these events. On Thursday 9 January we invited the community to come to a working bee and it was amazing how many people came. We got lots of work done and shared a delicious lunch and many interesting conversations. In the evening we sang a healing mantra with the help of Priyadhahra, Atmbhava and Kat from Anahata. They encouraged us to take the more difficult but more rewarding path of feeling compassion for the young man whose destructive behaviour affected us all. I would like to give a big thanks to everyone who’s been supporting us in these trying times. We are keen to continue our work of love and we invite you to come visit us anytime. Nina Sobhani, SLC coordinator

This letter is in response to the article titled “Float manufacturing firm buoyant”. (GBW 10/1, page 3) Over the past few years I’ve noticed how mussel buoys tend to escape from their intended sites and wash ashore. Recently, when visiting Anapai Bay in Abel Tasman National Park, there was a mussel buoy on the beach. This is just one of many impacts from a multi-million dollar industry becoming a “feature of the coastal landscape”. While kayaking around Pelorus Sound/Te Hoiere over the Christmas holidays, the mussel industry featured strongly also. The sheer number of mussel-growing installations was staggering. So much so that it took effort and skill to avoid being tangled amongst the installations when battling wind, waves and current. What was also concerning was the amount of mussel industry waste to be found at some campsite beaches. Plastic cord offcuts could be gathered and much of this plastic cord was partially buried under sea-driven detritus. Is this really the kind of trash we want becoming a “feature of the coastal landscape”? Rod Barker

GP clinics return to Collingwood

What great news – GP clinics are returning to the western side of Golden Bay (GBW 10/1, advert page 9). It’s hard to believe that, less than 10 years ago, GP clinics were held most mornings of the week at what is now Zatori. Congratulations and thanks to those who had the foresight and energy to establish the Collingwood Health Centre Trust in 2014. That group raised funds to refurbish the former dental clinic at Collingwood Area School as a community health hub, which they still manage. It’s meant that over the last few years westies have been able to access nurse and physio clinics there without a lot of extra travel time and cost.

Now there’s going to be three hours a week of a GP clinic. Sounds like progress to me! Penny Griffith, Collingwood

Grandstand trade stand

The Golden Bay Grand Stand Community Trust is running a tradestand at the A&P Show this weekend. Everyone is welcome to stop by to see our display and ask any questions about the ongoing legal dispute to save the grandstand and protect and uphold the use rights that the A&P Association has at law to the showgrounds and its buildings. The lawyer acting for the association and the trust, Craig Linkhorn from Clifton Chambers, is volunteering on the stand and will be available to talk with anyone who is interested in knowing more about the High Court case against Tasman District Council. The case has been brought so that the A&P Association can continue to deliver an A&P Show of the highest quality every year using the grounds and buildings transferred to council in return for statutory protection of the association’s use rights. Craig is very approachable and we invite everyone to call in for a chat. We are also holding two fundraising raffles – a box of books (including the GB A&P local history books), and outdoor furniture. As well, the last of the 2020 grandstand picture history calendars will be on sale. We would like to thank all the supporters of the grandstand for their continued encouragement and many for their hard work throughout 2019. Every effort is being made to secure the grandstand for the use of current and future generations. This takes time – the grandstand is currently protected by a High Court order while the legal proceedings and any associated settlement discussions take place. Golden Bay Grand Stand Community Trust

Christmas grouch

Before Xmas, Lethea Erz wrote about her surprise at seeing a “city style” supermarket in a country town. I replied, “well, it is, isn’t it?” What was published, incorrectly, was “well it isn’t”. I also enquired about those golden globes I had seen in the sky. I was told they are lanterns, so how do they get them up there? Seeing as we’re having a grouch, the terrible lack of toilet facilities was obvious this summer. Is it possible to instal (coin operated?) portaloos at various locations? Zane Perry

Action needed on Te Waikoropupū Springs

During the Water Conservation Order hearing, appellants submitted that Te Waikoropupū could be endangered by nitrates rising above 0.45mg per litre. Since then Friends of Golden Bay (FOGB) have provided scientific evidence of that threshold being passed. At the hearing conclusion it was generally thought that within perhaps three months a conclusion would be delivered and TDC said they would wait to act on that conclusion. At the time that seemed reasonable. However, 18 months have passed. FOGB’s tests, shared with TDC, show increases over 0.50mg per litre from August 2019. Despite proof of increasing contamination, Dennis BushKing has spoken saying no action is necessary. TDC will continue to wait for the WCO report. He dismisses factual scientific findings provided. I believe the TDC decision on inaction is no longer reasonable in view of increasing nitrate damage to the springs and the extreme delay in receiving WCO results. If TDC is sincere in its expressions of will to keep the springs viable in its ability to self-cleanse, it must act now, no matter whether the WCO report comes in 10 months or next week. There is a grave need to take immediate action and also thus adhere to new governmental expectations on water conservation. TDC’s decision to wait should be cancelled. It’s no longer useful under present circumstances. Dennis Bush-King’s refusal to accept scientific evidence borders on wilfulness. Karen Brookes

Freedom campers abusing sites JO RICHARDS

The well-predicted summer influx of freedom campers into Golden Bay is putting Tasman District Council’s designated sites under increasing strain. According to observers, the large numbers of campers overnighting at Waitapu Bridge and Taupata Gravel Reserve are creating health, safety and nuisance concerns, while at the same time degrading fragile environments, disturbing wildlife and desecrating sacred sites. While TDC slowly progresses its much criticised Responsible Camping Strategy, locals are saying “enough is enough”. One of those speaking out is Golden Bay resident Ron Eckman. Over the last few weeks he has collected photographic evidence documenting flagrant abuse of the Waitapu site, including overcrowding, campers washing clothes and dishes in the river, unpermitted fires, and human faeces and toilet paper scattered on the ground. Ron was so appalled that he wrote directly to TDC CEO Janine Dowding and Nelson-Marlborough District Health Board’s medical officer, Dr Stephen Bridgeman urging, “In the interest of public health and safety I request that you immediately close the freedom camping site at Waitapu Bridge, Takaka”. He signed off his letter by highlighting what he perceives as the double-standards applied by council. “Commercial campgrounds require resource consents and have to meet standards for toilets and hygiene. If a private business operated in the same manner as TDC operates the Waitapu Bridge freedom camping site, it would be shut down by TDC.” TDC’s regulatory manager Adrian Humphries responded by suggesting that the council knows what is going on and claimed that TDC’s compliance officers and freedom camping ambassadors were effectively reducing and managing the risks. “I am fully aware of the situation at Waitapu Bridge and along with my colleagues have been taking action to reduce problems associated to that site and others.” Until very recently, Mr Humphries was promoting the idea of an additional temporary freedom camping site in Takaka, but the planning and consultation requirements ruled this out. Ron believes such a demand-led approach is completely misguided and should never had been considered. “We don't have any obligation to provide thousands of tourists with free rubbish, free toilet and free camping sites just because they want to come here.” He now has some support from the Tasman mayor. “We welcome visitors but we can't provide unlimited facilities," said Tim King. Practical measures taken recently by TDC to mitigate the problems at the Waitapu site include the installation of an additional toilet, additional signage, daily visits by enforcement officers and asking camping apps to advise users of limited space. The negative impacts associated with mass freedom camping have been building for several years, but in stark contrast to other local authorities around New Zealand, and despite consistent local opposition to the practice, TDC’s

strategy appears to involve facilitating the growth of underregulated freedom camping in Golden Bay – at the expense of the local community, the environment and commercial campground operators. Mayor King explained that council are endeavouring to balance rights and freedoms with their obligations. "There are limitations on what we can do, both legally and financially. Although we want to protect the rights of our ratepayers, we are required to give reasonable support to tourists and other visitors to the district and to allow them to freedom camp." While recognising these limitations, Ron is highly critical of TDC’s handling of the issue. “Adrian Humphries is clearly completely out of touch with what is happening at the Waitapu Bridge freedom camping site. The freedom camping ambassador programme is a total failure and yet another waste of taxpayer and ratepayer money.”

Fun, experienced local guides Safe horses for all riding abilities

We transition into 2020 facing issues like climate change and environmental degradation, financial challenges, housing affordability, relationships and personal health challenges. These provoke thoughts and the inspiration to do things differently. Here are a few ideas I think could improve our lives, and ultimately the world. 1. Personal wellbeing – eat healthy and grow your own. After all the eating and drinking over this holiday time, many of us think that going on a diet or simply consuming less will help with our personal health. Eating well improves mental states, bodily functions and creates less dis-ease. In Professor Campbell’s TED talk he states that “nutrition when done right can create more health than all the pills and medical procedures combined”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tmWoWOM16uE. He suggests we eat wholefoods and not extracts from different foods, such as sugar and oils. He also says that plants have all the protein we need for optimum health. We could do well if we start a garden (if we haven’t already) and learn to eat from it seasonally. A new report, published in the British medical journal The Lancet, recommends a largely plantbased diet, with small, occasional allowances for meat, dairy, and sugar to meet the challenge of feeding a growing world population. 2. More local – buy local, improve networks. If you’re unable to have a garden then the next best thing for yourself and the local economy is to invest in local producers. Various markets in Takaka township offer a range of local produce: vegetables, meat from Ellis Creek; Kervella Cheese and bread. Roadside stalls offer variety in produce and craft to tempt visitors and locals. Spending money in local stores keeps money circulating in our local economy and enables businesses to offer local employment. Get to know what resources are available locally via word of mouth, The GB Weekly trades and for-sale listings, Facebook’s Golden Bay Noticeboard and Takaka Buy, Sell & Swap pages. This builds both resilience and community connections. 3. Cooperation – do more together…. There are many groups in Golden Bay and most rely on volunteers to keep them afloat. Check out what’s available in the back of our local telephone directory, or on Facebook and lend a hand. You’ll not only learn something new by volunteering but also hopefully get a additional feeling of goodwill. Another plug for gardening is growing food with others in a group. We at Fertile Ground collective enjoy our weekly catch-up with the added bonus of abundant vegetables. This could also apply to orchards. 4. Cohousing Many houses in Golden Bay are absentee owned, and housing is definitely a problem for those wishing to live here. It’s an issue that is raised regularly with council and at hui such as the Mohua 2040 Adaptability Forum. Alternative living situations like cohousing have been encouraged overseas and now in New Zealand, and tackle loneliness, affordability and community building. If you’re interested in this issue then come along to the Cohousing Meet-Ups: Curiosity & Conversation Monthly Picnics hosted by Tiny Lifestyle at the Sustainable Living Centre, 12 noon on 14 February.

5. Visioning The turn of another decade is a great time to create a vision you want for your family or situation for the future. Setting goals and having dreams are the seedlings of future realities. Out of conversations had at the Mohua 2040 event, a group of locals are meeting to craft a strategy to follow on from the Workcentre Trust’s Golden Bay...in 2022? community development/planning project document by Rebekah Foulkes <https://www.gbwct.org.nz/pdfs/goldenbay2022.pdf>. Taking the time to contribute to the project when it is launched will help create a stronger vision or plan for how we want Golden Bay to evolve into the future. Come along to the Sustainable Living Centre’s “Sustainable Golden Bay Hui” to hear more. This event on the weekend of 15-16 February will continue to showcase the awesome activities by local people to make Golden Bay more sustainable. 6. Simpler living - less consumerism Dr Mike Joy’s comment about reducing consumerism clearly marks a path forward we can all take to lessen our footprint on the planet. Making stuff out of what we have available locally or even in our own garden makes sense - like using flax or cabbage tree leaves to tie up tomatoes. Weave baskets from willow. Fix tools by making new handles out of a stick of kanuka, or by getting Pat Baker, our resident blacksmith, to rework a metal implement. Try saving seed from your favourite vegetables and fruits instead of buying bought-in seed or plants. Make a new glasshouse out of recycled windows. Purchase things without plastic wrapping. It all helps.

Golden Bay A&P Show 2020

All set for the Bay’s big day out

• Effective against all biting insects • 100% natural Big day out: The A&P Show is Golden Bay’s largest single-day annual event. Photo: Jo Richards. JO RICHARDS

Golden Bay’s 123rd Agricultural and Pastoral Association Show gets underway at Takaka’s Rec Park from 8am tomorrow and it promises to be a great day out for everyone – locals, summer visitors, tradespeople and competitors – of all ages. The show is the Bay’s largest single-day annual event and it’s no surprise that it takes a mammoth feat of organisation to make it happen every year. This week, the full committee, aided by local volunteers, assembled at the show grounds to prepare the produce booth, sheep pens, shearing stands, horse jumps, trade stand allotments, sound systems and complete a hundred other tasks. They were all busy over the festive season, too - finalising entries, preparing catalogues, collating prizes, organising trade stands, sorting prize money, chasing trade stand vendors and working with the entertainment and promotions sub-committee while at the same time dealing with a myriad of phone and email messages. The committee’s efforts have created a programme packed full of interest and entertainment, featuring traditional show classes for goats, sheep and poultry. Throughout the day, horseriders, sheep-shearers, wood-choppers and chainsaw experts will be competing in a series of highly entertaining contests. In the quiet cool of the produce booth, prize-winning baking, preserves, fruit, vegetables, floral arrangements,

• Kiwi made

home crafts, photography, home brewing and cheeses will be on display – this year co-organised by new booth manager Nicola Wells. If the sight of all that produce stimulates the appetite, there are plenty of food and drink options available, including sitdown morning and afternoon tea as well as a full cafeteria style lunch and dessert available in the Recreation Centre function room. Elsewhere around the grounds, show-goers can graze at food stalls offering everything from burgers to crepes and sushi to ice cream. Caffeine addicts can select their favourite brew from Goodness 2 Go as well as several other outlets around the grounds. For farmers and lifestylers looking for equipment and materials, there’s a wide variety of trade stands occupied by rural suppliers and machinery specialists, all staffed by knowledgeable representatives. There will also be lots of live music and several fairground rides, but the highlight of the show is likely to be the Grand Parade which starts at 1pm led by the Takaka Citizens Band, followed by prize-winning champion horses, sheep, goats and pets, with vintage tractors, collectable cars and motorcycles bringing up the rear. Tickets, on the day, are $15 at the Show gate, under 15’s free. Gates open from 8am, with free parking via Dodsons Road.

Farm animals: The stars of the show

For many, the farm animals are the real stars of the A&P Show. Unfortunately, there are no cattle at the show again this year due to the restrictions imposed as a result of the Mycoplasma bovis outbreak.



The good news is that sheep, goats, roosters, ducks and other fowl will all be gracing the “catwalk” for a shot at glory, with sheep judging running from 9.30-11.00am while goats and poultry will be assessed between 10-11.30am.

Competitions and exhibitions: Watch the experts

Solly’s sheep shearing competition will run all day. This event always attracts a large crowd happy to sit on the hay bales and marvel at the skill and speed of the expert shearers. Next door to the sheep-shearing is the wood-chop competition arena. This year there will be more than 20 axemen and women from around the South Island, including several NZ reps and local competitors. Competitions include standing and underhand chops, butchers-block and the spectacular jiggerboard. Requiring less physical exertion but an equal level of concentration, operators will choose their chainsaws for a noisy high-noon showdown between Stihl and Husqvarna teams. Equestrian events start at 8am, run throughout the day and range from the miniature horse class to ponies and hunter class competitions. Immediately after the Grand Parade, Baerbel Hack’s Vaulties will give an exhibition of gymnastics on horseback. Arguably the most spectacular event is the TwoFence Challenge Elimination horse jump which also follows after the Grand Parade; it’s a thrilling display of horsemanship which sees the bar raised a little bit higher after each attempt. Show-goers who prefer to have a go rather than just spectate should head over to TG Contracting’s digger challenge where they can test their handling skills. Company boss Tristan Graham says it’s open to all. “Anyone six or over and competent is welcome to have a go – it’s free and it’s not a competition. We’ll also have a few sossies for our customers.” Also happening throughout the day, the Takaka Volunteer Fire Brigade will be conducting safety activities at their stand.

Music and fairground attractions SERVING THE REGION FOR OVER 35 YEARS

Golden Bay

The Takaka Citizens Band has a history reaching back over 130 years. They have played at every show since 1897 and will perform throughout the day as well as leading the Grand Parade. The Motueka Highland Pipe Band will also be performing at various times and locations around the grounds. International magician and entertainer Josh Grimaldi will perform on stage at 12 noon as well as making roving appearances at various venues around the show grounds. There are also several local musicians including Charlotte Squire, performing on stage by the grandstand at various times throughout the day. Between 10.45 and 11.15am Charlotte will lead a sing-a-long featuring well-known songs.

No show is complete with its fairground attractions and, as they have done for over 70 years, Sturgeon’s Amusements will provide a Ferris wheel and other rides for thrill-seekers. Director George Sturgeon says the family business is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year. “It started when we brought the merry-go-round to the show in 1945. We got the Ferris wheel in 1962 along with the chair-o-plane, and the go-karts in 1970.” Younger children can explore the free “Kids play zone” which includes a climbing wall, obstacle course, bouncy slides and face painting. So, there really is something for everyone at tomorrow’s A&P Show.
